The Attitude Disease of Worrying

Published

on

Building off of our previous post, which dealt with the importance of perception in regards to positivity and time, this week we’ll be looking at the next step in healthy mindsets: dealing with the disease of worrying.


If you’ve been following along, you might also remember one of our articles highlighting the factor that fear plays in our lives. Worry is a close cousin of fear and it can be detrimental to not only your success, but your physical health as well. According to the American Institute of Stress, 25% of American’s experience extreme stress which manifests itself in depression, heart palpitations, etc. What’s more, is that stress has also been pointed out as the basic cause of 60% of all human illness and disease.

Is that not shocking? Just think about what else your perspective could be altering. When you live with worry and stress, your body language changes, your tone changes, and the way you interact with others also changes. Eventually these changes may lead to negative outcomes as well as negative attitudes. After enough time, this will eventually lead to a decline in your physical health, as we’ve already pointed out, and not only will you wake up a leg behind on achieving your dreams (due to inactivity based out of fear), but you will also be suffering down path of poor health.

To help nourish your positive thinking and mental wellness, here’s a video resource from motivational speaker Jim Rohn.

This week’s takeaway:
Remember the importance of your mental landscape and tend to it with great care and passion. Plant seeds of hope, rather than worry.

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

on

“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.
