Metaphysical Marketing Workshop
or Negative Impact on Your Business?
This segment of prosperity
inspiration results from still another network discussion about what
impact the economy is having on your business. Of course, most of the
replies were aligned with mass mind and media thinking (no explanation
needed here), but there were a few positive ones also. And then there's
your resident prosperity mentor :-)
There are a few recommendations that I would like you to consider
during this "economic" time...
1. Look at your business
and your clients and pick out those things that you can be truly
Focus on what's RIGHT about your
business right now. Give thanks for those clients or customers that you
DO have. Don't focus on those who are MIA - that may be temporary. And
if not, start giving thanks for the NEW ones you are now attracting
(even before you attract them).
Gratitude is a most
powerful way of becoming victorious during changes that we feel we
cannot control. I believe that we can control them when we answer to a
higher authority (as they used to say in those Hebrew National hotdog
2. Remember that what you
praise and bless continues to grow and expand.
This works for anything in your
Do you know how I
attracted Nike as a client a few weeks ago? I began to use an
affirmation that I had used in the past for my special events business.
Suddenly I decided to use that same affirmation because I was feeling
some nostalgia for that business. Here is the affirmation I used:
"I love my
business and my business loves me."
And voila! Within a week
or two, a new major corporate client showed up out of the blue for a
very quick profitable event. And guess what? They were also on a budget
but at the last minute they decided to splurge on a first class special
evening. And deep down I truly believe that my affirmation magnetized
them right to my door (or to the door of that spectacular estate to
which I had access).
I also believe that the Universe blesses me with these happenings to
support my teachings so that I don't appear to have pollyanna notions
3. I have another
favorite affirmation that I have posted before:
wait to see what good comes from this."
Now remember, it's not just the
affirmation that has the impact. It's the feeling behind the words, so
the more feeling we can bring to an affirmation, the more effective it
With regard to business,
here is what I discovered. When things are slow in one area, then we
can use the attitude of "I can't wait to see what good comes from this"
as an opportunity to be guided to another area of our business that can
be even more productive or profitable than the one that is negatively
I realized myself that
when it slowed down in certain areas, it was time for me to go beyond
what I was used to doing and expand into other areas to reach a wider
and newer audience. As soon as I made that decision, opportunities
appeared to fulfill that desire. That's because I loosened my "hold" on
the habitual way of doing things and opened myself to the new. We are
creatures of habit by nature (the subconscious mind does not want to
change) so often it takes something to shake us up out of the rut.
So what I'm saying is
that we can use what seems like an apparent negative to springboard us
into new and different avenues to prosper in our business and our life.
We have absolutely
nothing to lose by assuming the attitude that great possibilities await
us, even when the rest of the nation/world is having a pity party.
4. Instead of constantly
wondering how we can get more business, let's put our thoughts on what
we can give at a time like this.
I don't mean give for free. I
mean, "What service can I provide right now that people need and will
gladly pay for." I'm sure that many of you are doing that already but I
feel it's worth repeating.
