be proactive not reactive

Be Proactive, Not Reactive

When I talk about A.C.T.I.O.N., I’m saying be proactive, not reactive. There’s a big difference between reacting to circumstances and proactively taking action. In this segment of Marnie’s Motivational Moments, I talk about the factors in our lives that contribute to our success or failure versus those that actually determine our success or failure.

Knowing the difference and acting accordingly can make the difference in you achieving your aspirations or not.

Be sure to join me for my next Marnie’s Marketing Mondays if you’re ready to achieve the aspirations you have for your business.

be the voice

Be The Voice: Create a Raving Fan Base

People are hurting. There are problems that are too sensitive to talk about, that people don’t feel comfortable discussing in public, perhaps even in private. Some problems have a lot of shame associated with them (porn, suicide, addictions, etc).

In some value systems, it can be more difficult to discuss “sinful” or embarrassing subjects. In society as a whole, there are some thoughts, feelings or beliefs that would not be “politically correct” to admit in public without unleashing scorn and derision.

It is obvious that people are feeling stifled. Otherwise there wouldn’t be millions of people voting for a presidential candidate who is willing to “say anything” whether it’s politically correct or not.  This man has become “the voice” for millions who feel like society has shamed, demeaned, or stifled their thoughts, feelings and speech.

Be The Voice

In this brief video I share why it’s important to acknowledge this societal dynamic and how tapping into it could help you build a tribe (a loyal fan base). By being the voice for this voiceless group, you could leverage the power of vulnerability to deliver your message to those who desperately need it most.

jennifer lampreyPlease join me for Marnie’s Marketing Monday on October 24th as we discuss Be the Voice: How to Harness Vulnerability to Build a Tribe.” 

My special guest will be Jennifer Lamprey of The No Porn Club.

We’ll be having a deep discussion about how to speak, write and build a fan base around difficult subjects — how to be the voice for those who are too hurt or afraid to speak for themselves. In doing so, many of us have some really challenging questions:

  • How do you speak out when doing so affects other people?
  • What if you speaking out means airing someone else’s dirty laundry?
  • How do you handle backlash from family and friends?

Jennifer and I will discuss all these and more, PLUS, you’ll be able to chime in with your questions. Be sure to click here to get details on how to attend.

open your eyes to opportunities

Open Your Eyes to Opportunities

This segment of Marnie’s Motivational Moments is about the O in A.C.T.I.O.N. for Open Your Eyes to Opportunities. When you set your feet in motion, doorways of opportunities start to open. But you may also run into challenges and roadblocks.

What if your answers are right in front of you? all around you? and you’re just not seeing them? In my experience that’s EXACTLY where they are. The answers to your most pressing problems are in the little things all around you.

There are people, events, resources, and opportunities within reach for you to achieve your big aspirations.

But, if you don’t open your eyes to see them, you will miss out on them. Watch this short video which explains how to open your eyes and see opportunities and answers.

Are you feeling inspired to put your work or message into the world? Let me show you how with Marnie’s Marketing Mondays.

recognize inspiration

Recognize Inspiration: How Does It Feel to You?

When you are aligned with personal and universal truth, you open yourself up to a channel of inspiration. Inspiration looks and feels different for each person. That’s why it’s important to learn to recognize inspiration and how it shows up for you.

Some people hear a phrase in their minds. Others see a vision of clarity. Others have a sense or a knowing that they need to do something. It can come as strokes of ideas accompanied by a great feeling.

In this segment of Marnie’s Motivational Moments, I talk about I for Inspiration in the A.C.T.I.O.N. acronym.  I share the way inspiration shows up for me and how it is married to action.

the truth will set you free

The Truth Will Set You Free

Jesus said that the truth will set you free. Why is this?

In this vlog I share the concepts of personal and universal truth and how they play into the type of A.C.T.I.O.N. that leads to your greatest aspirations being fulfilled.

What Is Truth?

Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” That’s a very important question! There are two types of truth. First there is universal, absolute truth based on universal laws. The Law of Sowing and Reaping (aka Cause and Effect), for example, is a universal truth. What you send out, eventually comes back to you and rarely from the place you sent it.

The second type of truth is personal truth which has to do with your life purpose, your path. What works for you may not work for someone else. What’s right for you  might not be right for someone else when it comes to your  life path and purpose.

The Truth Will Set You Free

When you align your personal truth (your highest purpose) with ultimate universal truth, you put yourself on a channel of inspiration. If you follow the instructions from the inspiration channel, it will lead you to take actions that lead to ultimate freedom. Aligning yourself with your personal and universal truth opens doors of opportunity, raises up friends, and pours out peace.

This ultimate freedom creates an environment where the fulfillment of your highest aspirations is possible. Remember “aspirations” are more than amassing fame or fortunes. Aspirations are higher objectives that involve you becoming the person you’re here to be, being of service to your fellowman, and experiencing joy in your life.

It’s been said, “Adam fell that men might be, and men are that they might have joy.” That means that the object and design of our existence as men and women (children of God) is to experience joy! That happens when we align our personal truth with universal truth and live in harmony with both.

releasing the outcome

Releasing the Outcome: Care, But Don’t Care

We’re going through the A.C.T.I.O.N. acronym. If you missed A, go here.  Today is the letter C for “Care, But Don’t Care.” In other words, you need an aspiration you truly care about, but releasing the outcome is critical.

What do I mean by that? Watch this video, because I’ll share an example of a time in my life where I had to learn what it means to care, but not care. I think it will help you see what I mean.

releasing the outcomeReleasing the Outcome

The key is to set a clear intention for something you truly care about, take inspired action toward it, and then let go of the outcome.

Remember that you can’t control other people. You want an outcome, but who else is involved is not your call to make. Other people have their own freedom to choose.

Also, you can’t always choose which opportunity will be the one to materialize. That’s something else you need to release — when, how, or where your pieces come from.

So,s care about your big aspiration — care big about it — but don’t care whether this person or this opportunity is THE ONE to make it a reality.

nature responds to action

How to Make Your Dreams Come True

 

achieve your dreamsDo you have big dreams? Do you have something that your heart longs for? Is there something you've always wanted to have, do or become? If so, this series of Marnie's Motivational Moments is for you.

I am a firm believer in the fact that we create our realities. We play a significant role in the things that happen in our lives.

Sure, there will always be surprises, challenges, and setbacks, but they are all part of the process of helping us become who we desire to be on the most deepest of levels. It's the becoming that allows us to achieve the results we seek.

Yet, we can desire all day long, but if we don't take action, nothing is going to happen.

It's like the prosperous farmer who was told, "God has really blessed you with an abundant piece of property. The farmer replied, "Yes, but you should have seen it when God had it all to Himself."

God gives us the raw materials to work with, but it is up to us to take action on those materials to transform them into what we envision.

The great thing about action is that all of nature responds when you go into action toward your heartfelt desires.

So, I ask you, "Are you taking A.C.T.I.O.N?"

In this segment of Marnie's Motivational Moments you'll discover what it means to really take inspired action that makes your dreams a reality.

Get into Action on your Marketing with Marnie's Marketing Mondays!
