Mindful Networking β Turning Presence into Powerful Success
Being in the moment, making the most of each and every opportunity, is something to which we should all aspire. It is going to help us in life, and in our business.
It will increase our luck, in that weβll make the most of every opportunity that presents itself, many of which would otherwise go unnoticed.
It will improve our relationships, making them more honest and fulfilling.
Making the most of ourselves is where it begins. Mindfulness and presence requires being in touch with your inner core and integrating that with your every action.
We need to not only recognize our strengths so that we can utilize them to our advantage, but to also recognize the strengths in others, so that we can best help them.
Mindful networking requires being completely authentic, transparent, and empathetic in your relationships.
Being conscious of those around you, listening and reading between the lines for what they need while being honest with yourself and centered with who you are is what facilitates mindful networking.
But honesty with oneβs self is sometimes more challenging than we think.
It requires some reflection, self analysis, and getting in touch with our dreams, what will actually fulfill us in life, our βwhyβ.
This will be the glue which holds us to our goals when our plans seem to be wavering or require adjustment. It will keep us centered in our actions each and every moment.
The dream, what really drives our will to succeed, what we want most out of life for ourselves and for our loved ones, will give us the fuel to continue when the going gets tough.
And having this dream deeply embedded in our subconscious mind is the key.
Training your subconscious mind requires filling it constantly and purposefully with positive thoughts and emotions, visions that your dream is real, so that it will become real.
We need to be dreaming night and day, visualizing ourselves in our achievements, and integrating that into the present.
But some people have difficulty with focus in the moment, given the common level of stress and busy schedules we all face.
How can we focus on our long term goals while we are at work, fighting traffic on the way there or on the way to somewhere else we have to be, or juggling the other schedules we have to maintain?
By having your dreams and goals be a part of you, they define the framework by which you operate and take action.
Having presence of mind, an awareness of your inner self at every moment, is really crucial to maintaining the focus on your βwhyβ. It is key.
It will have you thinking about how every single thing you do is part of your path to success.
Where you are in the moment is the easiest thing to see, and what is most challenging to really see is where you want to be when your current circumstance is what you donβt want.
What IS important is that you bring your most inner dreams and aspirations into the now, into what you are doing at this moment, while visualizing where you are going.
If you continually project your goals, aspirations and dreams onto your present state, you should be lifted to a new level of consciousness.
You may be in a full time job and/or raising a family while working your network marketing business.
And while you are at work, or juggling your finances or kidsβ schedules, your current world has taken over, the one in which you have to control now, and the other side of the day seems far from your mind. But are our goals and dreams on hold?
Have you thought about how something you are experiencing during this day actually correlates to working your business, either in the way of marketing or, in particular, relationships?
Are you really listening to people enough to think about how you may be able to help them?
If you have internalized your goals, then it will be easy to remain focused on them, and at any given second apply your current situation to those parameters to make the best of both.
Every spare moment you have can be used wisely. Add those up and you may find more available hours per week that you can put to work. Some might say itβs being βAll Inβ.
For example, while standing in line at the grocery store you can be thinking about who you need to call next when you get a chance, or what you can write about in your next blog post.
Or you can be listening to training or audio books while you are stuck in traffic.
Or your family might pitch in for cleaning up dinner dishes while you take care of some calls. Or you can have a family meeting about how you need such support. The list goes on.
But mostly, if you are focused on your dreams and how you will be getting there, then the how becomes part of your every moment. It keeps you going, in the game.
Any given situation may present opportunities. Make sure they donβt slip by you unnoticed by being focused on your goals to the degree that you donβt have to think about them.
If your dreams are internalized then they do more than motivate you during difficult times, they drive your actions to the point that you see those opportunities where you may not have before.
And maintain a focus on your primary business activities, as well as on your marketing message. These too are crucial to the success of mindful networking.
Are you really building relationships ? Providing value in your marketing efforts? Creating know-like-and-trust? Have you identified what your target market or primary business activities are ? Do you have a business plan?
Now then, do you think it might be the time to regroup, focus, and internalize your goals and dreams so that you become more mindful and present in your activities and in your networking?
Wishing you Every Success!
