Positive Thinking Power

Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success. – Shiv Khera

After dinning with that famous mentor, the guy of 48 Laws Of Power. Here is what i squeezed out from our little conversation.

The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. You get what you want,that is the mind power.

This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts
like energy. One example used by a proponent of the law of attraction is that if a person opened an envelope expecting to see a bill, then the law of attraction would “confirm”
those thoughts and contain a bill when opened. Hmmmmm.

"The worst times can be the best if you think with positive energy."
– Domenico Dolce

A person who decided to instead expect a check might, under the same law, find a check instead of a bill. You have to train your brain to be positive just like you work out your body.

Why not learn to build a positive mind set to enable you achieve success. It's 101% riskier for not taking that risk to succeed. Change your mind set today,think positive and be smart.

What is Your Identity? (2)

Still on the same issue about creating a USP that will give you an edge over others. In telecom industry here in Nigeria when a house is painted YELLOW what comes to mind is MTN, same thing with others. What is your own.......?

Think about the topic your business is about and what can you add to the mix , to make it more interesting and unique? Or better still you can combine two things you already know about to make it extra-ordinary. Here are tips to help you find your USP.

1. Narrow down your topic. You need to specialize in one particular aspect of your topic. Instead of being a general accountant, you can narrow it down to an auditor, tax consultant, financial intelligent etc. In relationship, you can focus on singles only or married couples or both if you no your onions.

2. Pinpoint your target audience.
This is another technique that’s much more easy. For example, as a motivational speaker and business coach my target audience are the teens and youth's generally and i know where to find them. As a mechanic instead of focusing on all cars, you can choose to focus on Japanese vehicles, as a health consultant you can narrow down to dentist, optician etc.

3. Branding and advert. Once you’ve developed a USP, your next task is to communicate it clearly to your audience.

4. Create A great name and tagline.
Choose a short and easy to pronounce name and a simple great tagline that your prospective customers can know you with. Your name and tagline should always ring bell in the mind of your audience.

5. Expand your horizon. Go get more knowledge, read books, attend seminars and workshops. Don't ever stop learning and upgrading.

You can build your knowledge on other subject's but make sure you choose one or two and master the subject very well. Okay, i'll stop here. Using a powerful USP is the driving force that will build and position your business for success.

I leave you with this question. What makes you more unique , more valuable , and more visible in the market that will compel you to buy your own product or services?

What Is Your Identity

Speaker JC Samson said something on SWEC about some young speaker's asking him to feature them in one of his programs which he is still finding a space to fix the cube.

Hey, don't get him wrong. The truth is, anybody can be featured if only your real colour is clear (what you are known for). Now, your unique selling point is what makes your business stand out. It’s what makes you different , unique which guarantees you a special place in the minds of your potential clients come rain or sun.

If you can make your business stand away from the crowd, if people can identify you from the crowd then you have a USP . Customers and fans will gladly spread the word about what you do because they love it and know you for it. But if you don’t develop an effective USP, building an audience or getting any customers to pay attention to you will be a constant struggle.

Ponder on this issue, stop jumping into everything. Define your identity.
