The Number One Reason Why Fear is a Positive Motivator

Published

on

You’ve got to surround yourself with like minded people.  -Steve Harvey

Coming off of our “Failure is the New Success” article and how conquering your fear of failure can eventually lead to your success, we have a timely video featuring Oprah Winfrey’s Life Class series.

In this particular episode, Winfrey features family household icon Steve Harvey. Coincidentally, Harvey opens the short video by addressing an audience member’s question pertaining to overcoming fear. Harvey admits that despite his current success and celebrity, he still feels a heap of fear before everything he does. Harvey even suggests that everything he’s ever accomplished has begun with fear.

Building on the next stepping stone to self improvement, Harvey takes it a step further and suggests improving one’s immediate environment, your friends in particular. Harvey states, “If you don’t surround yourself with other dreamers here’s what I know, if nine of your friends are broke, then you’re going to be the tenth one.” Shortly thereafter Harvey also expands on his previous statement highlighting the importance of surrounding yourself with like-minded, positive individuals who will help nourish your goals and help you accomplish them as well.

To drive his point home, Harvey connects with the audience member, drawing attention to their relatively close age, being both 57 and 52. Harvey says to not let age be a deciding factor in your dreams, rather, let your passion be the deciding factor.

If you truly want something in this lifetime, and you want it bad enough, nothing should stand in your way. Excuses are made in the shadow of fear and doubt. We make choices that are decided on fear in the name of practicality, and the only person you hurt in doing so, is yourself.

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.

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.
