Getting Over the Guilt

It’s time for you to Get Over the Guilt That Keeps You from Loving Yourself and Doing What You Really Want To Do!

Today I want to talk to you about that pesky 5 letter word that a lot of us let get in our way to getting what we want or doing something about it.

It’s GUILT.

It’s a dangerous little word frankly. Especially when it comes to the guilt that you may have in NOT doing what you say you’re going to do, letting yourself down, not holding yourself accountable to what you know you need to do.

This is the worst kind of guilt because we never really end up letting it go. Not good.

I have clients who feel guilty when:

  • They schedule a call with me and miss it.
  • Set a goal for themselves and don’t hit it or let themselves be distracted so they don’t even do the stuff needed to achieve the goal.
  • Set intentions to do something but never follow through.
  • Keep saying they want “X” and I give them the steps to take or action plan to get that but they never take even one step, or maybe they take one but then stop.

And there’s all kinds of other things that can make us feel guilty, regardless if anyone knows about it too right?

So, you must know that feelings of guilt are not healthy for you right?  Not healthy or productive.

They aren’t motivating, in fact they are deflating!   They take the wind out of your sail. They make you do things like maybe binge eat, freeze up, or go into a depression and retreat from friends or support.

But how can you let these feelings of guilt go? They do need to be let go… you can’t hold on to them or they will make you sick and keep you stuck. You have to find a way to get over them, let them go and realize instead that you are on YOUR PATH in life and your business, no one else’s.

You will have YOUR life hiccups and roadblocks unlike anyone else. You will have good things and bad things happen that will deter you from achieving goals, accomplishing tasks, meeting appointments and staying accountable. If this never happened to you, you wouldn’t be human.

Therefore, why not focus on WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY.  Not what didn’t happen yesterday or last month or even last year.

Today is a new day, new month and new year. You can make new goals, move deadlines and readjust your plans for moving forward. You have the power to do so, it just takes a decision.

Here’s a 6-step process that you can take to help you get out of that guilt mindset and start appreciating yourself and what you DO accomplish more.

  1. Take a Little Time For Self-Reflection And Finding The Guilt That’s Holding You Back
  2. Dig Deep And Find The Reason For The Guilt
  3. Forgive Yourself And Start Loving The Real You
  4. Take A Few Baby Steps Toward Your Big Goals
  5. Watch Out – Those Guilty Feelings Will Try To Sneak Back Into Your Life
  6. Confidence Is Your Secret Weapon To Building The Live Of Your Dreams – get a good support system around you such as family, loved ones but also a supportive coach can help, a group of peers and clients. When you have positive role models and “cheerleaders” in your corner you can really start believing more in yourself and you’ll be more motivated to do what you need to do regardless of “life”.

It’s January which means it’s a great time to discuss your plans for the new year. Today I’m talking about the difference between visioning and planning.

Most of you have probably completed your Big Picture Planning for 2018.  Maybe you’ve also worked on a Vision Board. I’m sure some of you already have a picture in your mind where you want to be at the end of this year. That’s all great!

My interpretation of Visioning is seeing yourself where you want to be with Big Picture Items, Events or things that you want that are not tied to something measurable like a time line or a number goal.

With visioning, we see big things we want to happen, but we just don’t know how or when they will happen. For example:

  • About 10 years ago I wanted a Lexus. I didn’t have enough money to buy it at that time. Once I did have enough money to pay cash for it, I bought my Lexus.
  • I also had Oprah on my Vision Board about 9 years ago. I wanted to meet Oprah and be on her show. An opportunity presented itself where I could go to Chicago to see a couple of tapings of her show and while there, I was invited to be on her Radio Show.

Like many of you, I keep my Vision Boards next to my workspace so I can see them every day!

Planning is very important for your business and personal life. I’m not talking about resolutions but plans that help you reach your goals.

Click the video below to hear more about my tips and the tools I use for Visioning and Planning.

I hope these examples have helped you think more about your Visioning and Planning. If you’d like to have a conversation with me about your planning, your marketing or your business, just go to AskKat.biz to sign up for a call with me. I want to see more entrepreneurs succeed doing what you love. I’m here to serve you to help you make money.

Stop Talking about Your Goals Like They’re Dreams…Get ‘Em Done Instead

You’ve probably heard of S.M.A.R.T goals before…and that’s because it’s a formula that works. Here’s an overview:

SPECIFIC – Your goal needs to be spelled out very precisely and you also need to have a reason WHY behind your goal…some benefit or emotional attachment that will keep you focused. For example, a goal might be to earn $12,500 per month and onboard 5 new quality clients monthly in the next 90 days.

Using language that leaves no doubt as to what the goal is, why you want to achieve the goal, and how you will get there is very important. If you are not able to be detailed in your description of the goal, it will be hard to meet it. Take the time to do this part right.

MEASURABLE – This is where the Journal comes into play. It’s a report card and a method to measure what you want to accomplish and what you actually accomplished. If your goal cannot be quantified, then it’s not a full goal and you won’t know how when you have succeeded. An example of a measurable goal would be “I want to deposit to our bank account an additional 100 dollars per week. I’ll accomplish this by writing five 500-word articles each week for a life coach.”

ACTIONABLE / ACHIEVABLE – There are different things that “A” can stand for, but it’s usually actionable or achievable. In order to achieve anything, you must take action. So, make your goal actionable, where you do something each day that will eventually result in an accomplished goal.

Goals should also be achievable or you will quickly get frustrated. Be accurate about the time it takes to reach a goal, and what actions it takes to get there. Also, know who will be responsible for doing it.

REALISTIC / RELEVANT – “R” can stand for realistic or relevant, and both are important. If you want your goal to succeed, it should most certainly be realistic or you will fail. If you’re currently making $500 a week and your goal is to increase that to $12,500 in 90 days, that’s not realistic. However, you may be able to increase it by $300. Once you achieve that goal and are earning $800 a week, you can set a new goal to increase your income by another $500 a week or something similar.

Your goal should also be relevant to your life’s vision and match your values. There’s no point in making or achieving goals that have no relevance to your long-term life goals. You could instead use that time to reach goals that get you one step closer to actually reaching your life goals. So always ask yourself, if the goal is relevant to your life goals.

TIME BOUND / TIMELY / TRACKABLE – Various authors refer to the “T” in the S.M.A.R.T. acronym as time-bound, timely or trackable. All of these t’s are important parts of the goal creating and setting process. If you don’t set a time limit and you can’t track what is happening, your goal will be hard to quantified or show as achieved.

***This is a Guest blog post about referral marketing is by Coach/Speaker, Mickey Griffith.  

“The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions.”

How many times have we heard that? In school, in business, at home when we hear ourselves saying it to our children or ourselves? Reminding ourselves that we shouldn’t leave things undone. Get busy. Get in motion. Get something done, don’t just talk about it. So then, what it should really say is, “The Road to Hell is paved with procrastination.”

The Road to Success is paved with good intentions! Especially when it comes to referral marketing.

If building referral marketing success is a process of developing and using business contacts as a way to build business, then the road to Success should be paved with good intentions. Or more specifically; good intent. Having good intentions is the base gravel for the road and dictates the strength of the foundation on which the referral marketing traffic is going to travel.

What is your true intent in regards to your referral marketing activities? Are you engaged in a process of motivating your referral partners by truly helping them, or are you just doing the minimum to maintain the relationship?

People will eventually see through a facade. Are you practicing open, honest communication with those in your referral network? Having a foundation of good intentions is essential in traveling a smooth road to referral marketing success.

Honest, good intent will help you avoid common referral marketing mistakes.

Good intent will keep you from pouncing on potential new referrals, pushing them away or forcing a referral that isn’t quite ready yet. Try to make sure the true intent was not just to make yourself look good in your referral network.

Passing a referral at your meeting might feel good, but it does not help the person being referred and can in fact damage the very relationship you’re trying to build.

This one should be easy, but is often overlooked, especially by those new to the referral marketing process: Good intent should keep you from meeting with people in your referral network for a one-to-one and then trying to sell them your goods or services.

The one-to-one meeting is about building a relationship and if you are immediately trying to sell to people in your referral network, it will quickly be public knowledge that your intent is really just to sell.

Where the rubber meets the road. Sometimes looking in the mirror can be tough, but try doing a thorough examination. Be careful not to misdiagnose your intent.

Are you really involving yourself to help others as a means of growing your own business? Notice the “help others” comes first in that statement. Selfless giving is not always hereditary, it can be developed, and it really is essential to building good will with people you are trying to do business with by referral.

Finally, old adages don’t die easily. The road to hell is paved with procrastination. New habits take exercise and the more you exercise good intentions the more success you should see, just ahead.

Keep Shining!

***Guest blog post from one of my Awesome Live Big Mastermind clients, Lisa Harris of EnduringFitness4u.com – enjoy!

While at a luncheon recently, the conversation at the table I was sitting at turned to maintaining focus and achieving goals. The business coach that was next to me ask me if I had a morning routine.

My answer was a resounding “No!” Over time, I’ve developed a bad habit of staying in bed after the alarm goes off; it’s just so easy to hit the “snooze” button!

But the question posed by the coach at our table aroused my curiosity to the point that I began researching the topic of morning routines when I returned home. What I found is that most of us do not engage in or practice a morning routine.

Set Your Morning, Set Your Day

A routine will help keep you focused on your most important tasks and you’ll be less likely to let distractions knock you off track. Many experts say a morning routine will help you prepare for your day. It’s helps you be proactive and can increase productivity and energy levels. A morning plan also helps you take care of yourself, first.

Many successful people who depend on their A.M. routines are Former President Obama, Steve Jobs, Tony Roberts, just to name a few.

Steps to Create your Morning Routine

1. Prepare the night before. This helps decrease the number of decisions you have to make in the morning, boosting your chance of success.

  • Make a commitment to rise at a specific time.
  • Move your alarm away from your bed because this forces you to get up.
  • Set out your clothes and anything else you’ll need the next day

2. Stay hydrated – drink a large glass of water upon rising.
3. Valuable activities to do in your routine:

  • Meditate or sit in silence.
  • Express gratitude.
  • Write goals.
  • Exercise.
  • Visualize your successful day.

4.  Last but not least important – you’ll need to get up earlier than you do now.

The coach who posed the morning routine question to us at the luncheon recommended “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod. She thought this book would help jumpstart my day with focus. And she was right!

Since reading the book, I’m surprised that I no longer hate getting up at 5:30 a.m. I used to loathe rising early because I had to leave home at 6:15 for my 50-mile drive to work (ugh, how did I ever do that?). I was also a terrible sleeper which didn’t help.

I’m happy to report that after only 8 days into my new morning routine, I’m actually enjoying it. I’ll continue to keep you updated on my progress from time to time.

I highly encourage you to check out the book, if you’re looking for a new way to start a morning routine and get focused.

Today I want to give you some Holiday Marketing Tips to help you get more clients!

It’s crunch time, we are nearing the middle of December, and you want end the year strong with more income that you’ve made so far in your business, right?. Who doesn’t?

But what is actually going on in December? Lots of distractions, that’s what! Holiday parties, holiday luncheons, holiday shopping expos, and so on. But think about it, there is not a lot of business networking going on during the month.

So what is your plan to find those prospects who are actually ready and willing to buy from you in December, something that is not holiday oriented or a holiday gift to buy?

The number one goal is to get people on the phone with you! If you are an online marketer, are all of your prospects also online? Are you sure they are seeing all of the things on your website that you have for sale?

And what about your higher priced offerings. When people have their mind on the holidays, they are less likely to click the button to purchase your $200 offering. People who are going to pay a few hundred dollars or a few thousand dollars with you will most likely want to have a conversation with you first.

So how will you generate someone’s interest to have a phone conversation with you?

Click the video below to learn more Marketing Tips for the Holidays – #1 Thing to do to Get Clients!

 

Get more personal, pick up the telephone, and have a conversation. Reach out to people, one by one to schedule those conversations and I think you’ll find more success during this month even though many people are focused on the holidays!

If you want more information about how I can help you Jumpstart Your Business, come to a call with me. I can help you prioritize and organize your plans, get focus and clarity, help you plot out your Big Picture for the following year, and so much more. Don’t wait because my calendar is filling up fast. Come to a call with me this month. I want to help you make a Big impact, make Big changes, and make Big money in the coming year.

This article about ClickFunnels is by one of my Virtual Assistants and clients, but I highly agree!

No matter what point you are in your business, you are always looking for THE best solutions for operating your business.

There are so many choices for systems out there and sometimes it can be hard to choose one.

One of the things we do at That Helpful Chick is help business owners find the best systems, not only for their business BUT for their budget as well !!

If you are unsure of what system to use; or if you would like to know if what you are currently using is really the best choice for you; take a moment to fill out this short form and schedule your FREE consultation call TODAY!

Bottom Line: You can get by with very little cost if you are just starting out, as little as less than $50 per month.

Are there systems that make your life easier? Of course there are, but they usually have a cost that comes with that convenience.

Kathy and I LOVE our tech. We love checking out new tools and systems and see if they are as good as they claim themselves to be.

One of the most recent ones we have looked at is ClickFunnels (CFs). What I will say is, if you just want a simple page builder solution, there are cheaper ones out there.

What is CFs good for then? It does simplify creating a sales funnel and taking payments. If you don’t mind paying $97 a month for that, then CFs is good for you.

Be aware though, that at the $97 plan you are limited to 20 funnels and 100 pages (funnel steps).

They claim to be an all-in-one solution and they are definitely NOT!

If you have the full Etison Suite at $297 per month, you also get access to Actionetics for email and Backpack to create your affiliate program as well as unlimited funnels and pages.

Sounds like an all-in-one solution, doesn’t it? However, what they don’t tell you:

  • You need an SMTP service to deliver emails (paid service)
  • If you want to do SMS, you have to purchase Twilio (paid service)
  • If you want to be notified when someone opts in or buys – good luck cause the in funnel system doesn’t work properly

Those are just a small example of the issues with CF.

There is no live support to call.

There is no communication with their clients (YOU) when known issues come about that have a direct effect on YOUR business.

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.

Do we still recommend CFs? Sometimes we do. We do not recommend the full suite to anyone unless they have a big budget, simply because it allows for unlimited funnels.

It is also a good solution for a page builder for those who have ZERO tech skills.

I can say it IS the best page design solution I have seen. You can easily create, edit and use beautiful sales pages.

What it IS NOT is an all-in-one solution.

Is there such a thing, you may be asking? Maybe. We are looking into a few other tools out there and will let you know what we find.

What can you use if you don’t have a budget for systems like CFs?

Well, we would love to have that discussion with you !

Bio Box

Angela Hall is the Owner of That Helpful Chick, LLC and helps businesses discover what tools and systems they need without spending a fortune.

Do you want to be a published author? Did you know that 81% of Americans feel that they have a book in them?

We are nearing the final days for you to register for my brand new, one time Live “5 Steps to Publishing Your Book in 30 Days or Less” Coaching Program.

It’s a 30-day program and it starts on this Thursday, December 7th, 2017! There’s no jumping in once the Program has started.

Writing a book is not as difficult as you might imagine if you have coaching along the way! You will need to carve out some time this month and in January, but we’ve structured this Program so it’s not time consuming. I KNOW that most of you have a book inside of you – you just need to be coached on how to bring your story or message out and write it down.

And even though you might be a published author like me, you should consider this Program if you want to learn how to publish inexpensively so you can publish MORE BOOKS!

Did you know that I spent over $6k to publish my “Love Yourself Successful” book! I won’t be spending that amount again because I’ve found so many other methods and resources to get my books published without skimping on quality.

My partner in the project (who is also one of my clients), Rich Greene and I created this Program and will be guiding you along the way. Rich has spent the time and has done hours of research to find the best vendors and resources for you – something that would take you hours of your time to research yourself. I’m the go to person who can help pull your message, your story, your ideas out so you can write your book.

Both Rich and I are busy with our business, so if you want to get your book completed, published, printed and ready for you to use for marketing purposes but you don’t want to spend a small fortune to do it, THIS PROGRAM IS FOR YOU!!

Head over to the page where Rich and I give you more details about this Program. You’ll find information on all of the coaching and resources we have ready for you as well as payment options. This Program is bargain priced at $247 but we’ll even give you a 2-payment option if that works better with your budget. Just go to http://bit.ly/5StepsToBookPublish to register.

Here’s to Your Book Publishing Success!!
