Several years ago I attended a personal development training and it changed my life. Two of my biggest takeaways were accountability and being your word (do what you say and honor your agreements).
But this week I have a BIG awareness that I often confused accountability with over-responsibility.
Something would happen, and it could be anything like someone running a red light and they almost crash into me, and I would immediately go into the question of “how did I create/attract that?” Or more commonly “Was that my fault?”
My husband and I were in the food court of a mall waiting for an oil change on my car. As we sat there eating our mall food (not recommended by the way), a man who looked to be in his early fifties stopped at our table, set a piece of paper down and no more than two seconds later walked away.
I picked up the paper and it was an envelope with a sticker of the US flag inside of it.
Outside of the envelope was a message: “I am deaf and I sell these American flag stickers as a way to support my family. Please donate $2.00 or $3.00 if you can. Thank you.”
Let’s talk about social media and the focus so many people have on it, yet for a lot of people they don’t get active income from it.
Is it important to have a presence on social media platforms? Yes and no.
Yes – IF your ideal market is there. And yes IF you are leading people you connect with to do one of two things (preferably both):
1 – Opt in to your email list by giving them a free gift (your freebie)
2 – Inviting your followers and fans to have a conversation with you, also known as a strategy session.
