Who is the Captain of your ship?

Everything in your life, from your diet to your career must be aligned with who you are. If you know your true passion, your deepest desires, then the secret to success is to discipline your life so you support your deepest purpose and minimise distractions and detours.

If you do not know your deepest desires, the your can not align your life to it. Everything in your life will be disassociated from your core. Disconnected from your core will make you feel weak and your will feel incomplete.

When you know your true passion and purpose – every moment will be lived to express your core desires and you will be living your truth.

When would be a good time to start finding and living your true passion/purpose?

Why you need network marketing today!

Regular readers of the blog know I run a very successful coaching consultancy; I passionately care about helping people and businesses become the best they can be. I relish everyday in my business but I recognised that I was in a vulnerable position. I had a business which produced linear income, I do the work, I get paid. If I don’t do that work, guess what? I don’t get paid!Juice plus experince

When I was introduced to network marketing a few years ago, it made total sense to me. Here was an opportunity to build a second business, part-time alongside my consultancy business but instead of swooping time for money, I can do the work once and get paid forever! I now strongly believe that building a network marketing business in today’s economy is one of the smartest moves you can make!

“I would rather make 1 percent on the efforts of 100 people than 100 percent on my own efforts.”

J. Paul Getty

That is essentially the philosophy of network marketing. You can leverage your time and increase the number of hours of work effort on which you can be paid by sponsoring other people and earning a small income on their efforts. With network marketing there are no overheads, no massive start up costs, no geographic limitations, no special qualification’s needed, just a belief in yourself and the will to succeed.

If nothing else get involved with network marketing for the personal development alone! Network marketing attracts the very best people, learn from them! Network marketing companies provide amazing training opportunities for you to grow as a person and opens your eyes to the life you could lead!

Living A Rich and Rewarding Life

I am humbled and amazed in my network marketing business everyday from the people who have changed their lives with this business opportunity. I could tell you so many stories of people from all walks of life overcoming different challenges but determined to succeed. To become successful, you have to help other people become successful. It’s very rewarding to watch other people grow and become better people.

There are many network marketing companies, my only advice is to find a product that resonates with you, something you can be passionate about! And chose a company with a tried and tested system, preferably one that has a few years behind them. That way you know it has longevity! I choose The Juice Plus Personal Franchise as I love the products and believe in a healthy body, healthy mind so it fit perfectly with me!

I leave you with a few questions:

Do you want to retire rich?

Would you like an income that builds itself?

Would you like more recognition and appreciation?

Answer YES to any of those questions then networking marketing could be for you!

Use Emotional Intelligence to Increase your Team’s Effectiveness

I had a great time delivering a workshop in Chester this week titled “Use Emotional Intelligence to Increase your Team’s Effectiveness”.

Why do some highly qualified and apparently capable managers produce less successful outcomes than other seemingly less qualified individuals? The answer is often in their levels of Emotional Intelligence.emotional intelligence

If you are a manager or leader in any capacity I highly recommend you develop your skill set around understanding, using and managing emotions, this will help you improve the quality of your communication and lead your team to achieve higher levels of success.

It was Daniel Goleman who first brought the term “emotional intelligence” to the forefront back in 1995. I recommend reading his book as a great introduction into Emotional intelligence:

Goleman found that while the qualities traditionally associated with leadership—such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly effective leaders are also distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill.” source

Read: Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More Than IQ – Daniel Goleman

Amazon description:

The ground-breaking best-seller that redefines intelligence and success Does IQ define our destiny? Daniel Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, and that our emotions play major role in thought, decision making and individual success. Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy and social deftness are all qualities that mark people who excel: whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. With new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality, Goleman shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us.

Emotional intelligence has a huge impact on your professional success , in fact emotional intelligence it the strongest predictor of performance in the workplace and the strongest driver of leadership. By becoming more self-aware and improving your emotional intelligence it can impact in many areas, including:

  • Become an Emotionally Resilient Leader
  • Learn Enhanced Communication Skills to Strengthen Team Dynamics
  • Develop Self Awareness and Empathy
  • Manage Emotional States for Improved Outcomes
  • Identify your ‘Triggers’ – Learn Specific Self-Management Strategies
  • Harness Stress and Use it Productively
  • Create High Levels of Resilience to Perform under Pressure
  • Improve the Quality of ALL your Meaningful Relationships
