I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend, mine was spent out of the house in motivation to catch Pokemon. For the first time in a long time, my dad & I went for a walk together. It was a great bonding experience for us. The Pokemon GO app is taking the world by storm and getting people/gamers out the door in adventure.
But alas it's the start of a new week and it's imperative to start it off with a bang. Akasha Garnier, who recently celebrated the First Look at her Cover Reveal: Shine Through the Noise here on the blog. An amazing friend and mentor I've met via social media, recommended an awesome company to me, Motivational Press.
Meet CEO Justin Sachs
The first thing I went to was their mission statement & core values, what immediately stuck with me was the universal message that I could see within them. I realized, "Hey I can actually apply these to my daily actions." My thought process was that I needed a change, I needed new direction and an action plan. Motivational Press Core Values provided just that.
Thanks to the application of these Core Values into my daily life, I not only received two payments from one client in one day but I also recently celebrated 50,000 Pageviews reached on the blog for the first time this month. The last milestone was 20,000 in a month and my goal was to reach 50,000 next. I had no expectation that it would be this soon but I can assure you, 80% of that outcome was based on applying these values.
How to apply the Motivational Press Core Values to Your Daily Life
1. Deliver Extraordinary Service
Believe anything worth doing is worth doing exceptionally well. Differentiate yourself by doing things in an unconventional and innovative way. Go above and beyond the average level of service to create huge WINS for yourself, your clients and/or your company.
2. Embrace and Drive Change
Recognize that any industry is in the midst of transformation. With the arrival of new technology, not only handle the fast-paced change constantly evolving in the world, but also embrace it with open arms. Never accept or become comfortable with the status quo but always think of ways to change processes, perspectives, and opinions, hopefully for the better. Success always lies outside your comfort zone.
3. Create Fun and Interactive Collaboration
Be committed to making the world around you a little more fun and a lot more interconnected. Realize that it's good to laugh at yourself every once in a while. Your work shouldn’t be synonymous with drudgery. Always look for a chance to fully engage in your work and bring out the fun and interactivity in it.
4. Be Adventurous, Creative and Open-Minded
Be bold without being reckless. Do not be afraid to make mistakes because, after all, that's often the best way to learn. Takes risks and be open to your clients/company taking risks too. As long as you learn from them as a team and use them to make better decisions in the future. Believe that your gut feeling can always be tested and evaluated before released publicly. Everyone can develop a gut feeling about business decisions as long as they are open to new ideas.
5. Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication
Become an open book. Your honesty when interacting with others leads to strong relationships built on trust and faith. Use those relationships to accomplish so much more than you could otherwise. It’s not easy getting there! Always strive to act in integrity, be compassionate and loyal, and be a good listener. At the end of the day, it’s not what we say or do, but how we make people feel that matters the most.
6. Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit
You should want to build a family, not just a team with your colleagues. Serve those you lead by removing obstacles and enable your team/clients/company to succeed. As a family, you should watch out for each other and care for each other. Work together and play together because those bonds go beyond typical business relationships.
7. Do More with Less
Always be on the lookout for how to make yourself more efficient and improve your daily operations. There’s always room for improvement and you should always feel a sense of urgency when making those improvements. Strive to not only be a great service company/independent consult but the greatest service company/independent consult in the world. Strive to set and exceed your own high standards for getting more done with the same or even fewer resources than before.
8. Be Passionate and Determined
What should keep you at the forefront of other industries out there? It’s your passion for your business and your culture. Be inspired because you believe in what you are doing and where you are going. Don’t ever take,“That’ll never work” for an answer. Have a positive and optimistic attitude because it inspires everyone around you to achieve more and be more.
9. Be Humble
Know that despite all the great things that you have accomplished in the past, there will always be challenges ahead. No matter what happens, always be respectful of everyone. Learn to love to celebrate your individual and team successes, but not in an arrogant or boastful way. Believe in a quiet confidence because in the long run your character will speak for itself.
To help with this I do a Gratitude list at least twice a week. A gratitude list is a list you write up of All the things you are grateful for as of that date. You might just be surprised as to what appears there especially the first thing that pops up in your mind. It will help keep you humble, realize that there is less to complain about and relish in all that you can be thankful for.
I know without even knowing you that you have massive greatness within you, the power to change the world in untold ways. You need only have the WILL & NERVE to go out there and become.
This is a great start and action plan for you to achieve all that you have ever dreamed of and more.
Believe in yourself, apply these core values into your daily life & most importantly, take massive action, not tomorrow or the day after but take action Now.
Do come back and share your feedback on how this application has affected your daily life. All are welcome.
I'm going to leave you with my favorite motivational quote by Mark Twain.
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
