Sometimes, Winning Feels Like Depression.

Published

on

Success is a subjective measure. Some will count money, some will count days off, and some will count an obscure collections of materials. What is not subjective is the fact that everyone wants success in their lives. The reasons, ambitions and motives may vary, but success in itself is always desired.

Due to this desire, we have a passion which propels us towards success. However, somewhere along the road to our destination we hit a few speed bumps; financial setbacks, relationship issues, self-esteem block, so on and so forth. After a while, we decide to give up. We think “this is too hard, it won’t happen, I’m unlucky.” But what we don’t realize is that, as pointed out in our Have You Woken Up Yet article, the inertia of the process is far more important than the initial results.

Every motivational speaker in essence speaks to the same few, core principles, one of which is simply the importance of getting started and showing up. What happens when we hit our roadblocks is that we stop showing up and refuse to push the dream forward. We would rather break down on the side of the road, never reaching our goal, simply because we are too afraid of the pain, the discomfort, and the uncertainty that comes your way.

This week we have a new video to share with you from Basquiat Picasso, whose work we have previously featured with Angelo the motivator. In the video, Angelo builds off of his previous framework of the importance of starting, and using your momentum to your advantage.

This week’s takeaway:
If you’re working towards your goal, sometimes it’s going to hurt. It may be physical or psychological pain, but remember, the presence of pain means that you’re moving closer to your dream. Keep pushing through, and break into your future.

Three Ways to Turn Social Media Followers Into Paying Customers

Published

on

As presented by Jobber, in Colony Work Space, Katie Pearse, owner of The Maid Mentor, spoke to an audience about how she was able to convert her social media followers into paying customers.

With a background in marketing, Katie graduated and went on to start her own multi-million dollar cleaning company. After experiencing much success, especially with garnering hype for her company through social media, she switched to consulting to help others do the same.

Jobber, a multifaceted entrepreneur software company, holds many different workshops for their clients and interested people in the community to attend. Key influencers of their respective industries will come out to speak about their experiences.

After listening to Katie, here are the top three takeaways to note:

  1. It doesn’t matter which social media platform you use as long as you target your audience. Know who you are trying to reach and who you’re catering your content towards.
  2. Email lists are everything. According to Katie, email marketing is still 40% more effective than other forms of marketing. So if you’re going to dedicate your time towards one thing, this is it.
  3. Video is an emerging trend. Most social media platforms either started with, or have now made it possible for you to post content through video. Making it easier for customers to view and understand your product, more companies are trying to maximize on this opportunity.

If you’d like to learn more about what Katie shared, you can follow her on Facebook, or reach out to her on her website.

The Video That Forever Changed My Life

Published

“Some of you love sleep, more than you love success.” -Eric Thomas

One night, 5 years ago I was feeling in need of some inspiration. I was stuck in a rut and I didn’t know where I was headed or what I wanted from my life. In the late moments of the night, I took to my Facebook and posted a status, “in need of some motivation and inspiration.” It was more of a statement than a request in my mind, but a casual acquaintance of mine from high school shared a link in the comments section.

The video showcased an unknown athlete working out with what seemed to be a rather rigorous routine. What caught my attention more than the impressive work ethic that was displayed of the athlete, was the voice of the narrator. This was the first time I ever heard Eric Thomas speak, and his words would forever change my life.

In the video, Thomas tells a story of a young man who aspires for great things. In pursuit of his goals, the young man seeks out a guru to teach him how to be successful. In what begins as a rather odd circumstance and continues on to be a confusing lesson, the moral of the story is both profound and impactful:

This week’s takeaway:
Everyone of us has a dream, but not nearly enough of us want it bad enough. Only when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath, will you be successful.
