The Difference Between Motivation & Inspiration

Motivation Know that motivation doesn’t have longevity to it. It’s temporary. There is a difference between the performance of an employee who seems motivated and an employee who is engaged and inspired. Your goal as a motivational leader should be to understand how to best motivate your individual team members, as people react differently to different stimuli and situations. Fear and Motivation - People think that you need to be afraid or experiencing fear to be motivated. Understand that fear only provides you momentary focus, not motivation. Inspiration goes two ways, but first know that you are accountable for your own inspiration. When you are inspired, you are empowered to invest more (not sacrifice more) to get what you want, if you truly want it. Take accountability for yourself. Find what you love to do and align it with what must be done. Then, work to surround yourself with the right people. When I say, “the right people,” I mean the parts of the people you are most attracted to— the parts of others that bring you confidence, make you feel happy, or empower you to be your best self. The second part of inspiration comes from helping your team clear their connection to that which inspires them. Encourage them to participate in activities and philanthropy that they enjoy.

Prioritization | Road to Revenue #124

How to Build a Community

The first step of branding a person, product, or service is to find its frequency. What does that mean, “to find your brand’s frequency”? Whether it’s building a brand that is a person, place, thing, product, or service, it’s essential to find out what the “woo-woo” person in me describes as a “vibration”— in other words, an emotional appeal meant to reverberate with your target audience or market.

What You Need to Know Before Making an Investment

The last recession impacted stocks for several years, so it is natural to expect this bear market to react similarly. One good rule of thumb to help you create a financial plan is to assume that your stocks and funds could drop 50 percent overnight and stay down for a very long time. This will help you to better determine your timing and risk tolerance, in terms of investing in stocks. Understanding your timing and risk tolerance when investing is essential but that does not mean that you can win by avoiding taking any risks. As previously mentioned, I tend to lean towards a more conservative approach with stocks and bond investments, and make sure that is aligned with the ever-increasing costs of living. Remember that when the stock market recovers, it tends to recover quickly, which can lead to decent returns if you are patient.

Stop Letting Other People Determine Your Life

While voting for what you want, you’ll get a lot of advice along the way. One of the best ways to handle this advice, especially from loved ones, is to treat others' advice like a handful of sand. We should be grateful for people who give advice and take time to think about it, be appreciative. And if you don't like their advice or it isn’t aligned with your values, let it run through your fingers like a grain of sand. But when someone gives you that pearl of wisdom, be sure to hang on to it.

The Key to Finding The Right Coach

What Attributes Make a Good Coach? There is one aspect where the best coaches are united, and that is through consistency. A good coach is consistent in the time and interest they devote to their “team”, as well as their behavior, feedback, and the suggestions they give. These coaches don’t let their own issues impact their ability to lead, they can keep these issues separate from their role as a coach. No matter what area of life you are working on improving, a coach is able to help you bring your best on a day-to-day basis. They can inspire you and motivate you as they help you progress towards your goals.

Becoming a Milestone For Others | A Conversation With Dan Fleyshman

One of the biggest impacts we can have on others is by serving as a “milestone person”, meaning that we set an example for others to follow and eventually surpass. Dan had been helping countless other charities raise money through events, but not getting to see the impact for himself, so he decided to start his own charity and use that organization as an example for other people to follow. Not only that, but we can use the Stage Theory to raise awareness for causes, rather than looking for clout for doing good deeds.    Importance of building your community   Another way that we can exponentially increase the positive impact we have on the world is through building a community. First, we create a void by providing more value than we ask for in return. Then, we must consistently and persistently surround ourselves with the right people (those who feed you, not bleed you), as well as the right ideas. When we follow that formula, our audience will continually grow.   Shift your perspective to turn “failures” into lessons   Circumstances in a business or industry can change overnight, and things don’t always go the way that we expect. As a business leader, it is vital to never let a tough moment ruin our perspective on the present or the future. Instead, choose to seek out the light, love, and lessons in each failure, as long as it is worth our time to do so.   Treat life like a video game   When we attach our emotions to outcomes, we almost never achieve the results we seek. By treating life as a video game and doing our best to “win” each day, we will thrive in the long run. It’s important to pay attention to the scoreboard, but never forget to take an abundant approach to winning, rather than a scarce one.  Learn more about your ad choices.
