Brand Yourself

Brand YOU!

I am really feeling the desire to express how important it is to Brand YOURSELF.

Let me explain.

I started my coaching and mentoring business two years ago this past March and immediately did what a lot of people do. I called it something else other than my own name. Which is fine but not great. At least in my opinion.

Thanks to Tracey Walker, with Empower Network,  I understand the importance of branding my own name.

Here are some of the things I learned in going through the process of creating a brand using a “company name” vs. branding yourself.

1) You don’t have to call your company something else in order for it to be recognized by others. In fact it’s probably more difficult to recognized by your friends and family because guess what? IT’S NOT YOU! LOL

2) You have to work hard to identify with a name other than your name. My current company is called Motivation Made Simple, and although I like and identify with what I am trying to portray through this name, it is just that…a name I had to try to identify with.

My Name As A Brand

3) There’s nothing wrong with MY NAME as a brand name. In fact, there’s EVERYTHING right with my name as a brand name because it accurately reflects WHO I AM and WHAT I’M ABOUT.

What do I mean by this?

There’s one thing I know better than anything else… that’s myself, or at least I have mastered the art of getting to know myself which brings me to number 4.

4) Things certainly do change! Although I thought that I accurately expressed my company through the name I chose, I have grown to understand that not only do I motivate as reflected in the brand name Motivation Made Simple…..I INSPIRE people! This is my true passion…TO INSPIRE OTHERS!

5) Don’t box yourself in. At times, when we have chosen a name that is other than our own, we box ourselves into the idea that came along with that name in terms of company growth.

6) Last but certainly not least, the world deserves to get to know YOU,who you are and what you stand for through your name as a brand.

I believe it’s much easier for a person to show themselves to the world when you are using your own name!

Start marketing yourself as a brand today!

Keep Singing

Keep Singing Even If You Don’t Know The Words

I woke up yesterday to the vocal stylings of my son Michael singing the song Viva La Vida by the group Coldplay!

I didn’t know the name of the song or the group at the time but NEITHER DID HE!

All I heard was WOOAAOOOOO! WOOAAOOOOO! WOOAAOOOO!

It was GREAT!

ENERGETIC!

FUN!

IT MADE ME HAPPY!

Even though he didn’t know the words to the song he kept singing as if he did!

It taught me so many things about DREAMING. Click the link to join and reawaken your dreams.

The fact that we, as adults, think we need to have all the answers; That in order to hold on to the dream we have inside, we have to know the who, what, when, where and why of it all.

We think we HAVE TO know the words to the song that our heart is singing.

We couldn’t be further from understanding the reality of it.

Singing Does  A Mind Good

WOOAAOOOO! WOOAAOOOO! WOOAAOOOO! WOOAAOOOO!

SEE!

You’re smiling already!

As you continue to listen to the song that your heart is singing, your dream, you begin the become more and more in tune.

You start to know the words because everything about you desires to be in concert with YOUR SONG.

Amazing how just an exercise in singing WITHOUT KNOWING the words, can teach us so much.

Thanks to my son Michael Scott, and thank YOU for stopping by!

Thank you in advance for visiting my website by clicking the link below and “TUNING” in to your hearts song.

WOOAAOOOO! WOOAAOOOO! WOOAAOOOO!

No More Attachments to the Outcomes

What does it mean to have attachment to outcomes?

If you were to ask someone to write down what they want their life to feel and/or look like, somewhere before they even start writing, they will already have decided what things they can have and what things they cannot have. This is what it means to have attachment to the outcomes.

People will already limit the outcome based on their attachment to a self-imposed or society-imposed belief system, regarding what is possible and what is not possible.

We do not pay attention to the fact that we are usually already trying to figure out the answer based on attachment.

Some examples of the internal questions we struggle with as a result of having an attachment to the outcome are:

When is it going to happen?

Where is it going to happen?

How is it going to happen?

With whom will it happen?

There is limitation in attachment if we do not realize what our own core belief systems are.

Some examples of the internal questions we struggle with regarding core belief systems are:

Do I believe I am worthy?

Do I believe I can have?…

Do I believe things can change?

A practical example utilizing a tool called: Vision boarding

Some people utilize the tool of vision boarding in order to place images on a board to look at on a daily bases or as often as possible, until the images become a subconscious thought.

For some, this tool may not work if an individual’s core beliefs are that they are not worthy of what they desire to have, do not believe that things can change, or that they can have what they desire to have.

These are core beliefs but they are also forms of attachment that must be looked at by the individual, in order to detach from thoughts and beliefs that no longer apply to the individual.

Let’s detach from what no longer works for us.

Let’s detach from what no longer makes us happy.

Let’s form an attachment to those things that we believe from the core.

Let’s form an attachment to the tools that are going to get us there.
