Don’t Like Your Life? 5 Action Steps to Personal Growth

I have had moments in my life where I simply didn't like what I was doing and where I was headed so I made up in my mind to make necessary changes.  Many people are sick and tired of being sick and tired and are ready for personal and professional changes in their lives, but they just don’t know how to go about making their desires happen.

Jobs, relationships, and money, may be negatively influencing the way you see your life right now.  Have you been doing something about it?  You may have already shared with others how you feel about being a wife, husband, parent, employee, or friend.  Behind your back, someone might be praying for you, talking about you, or hoping that things will get better for you.
You feel this way, because you don’t like the choices you have made.  The children came too soon, the man wasn’t what you had in mind, the woman you married changed drastically, the job wasn’t what you expected, and your friends aren’t available anymore. You might personally believe that you are too old, too tired, too stubborn, or too whatever else to make a difference in your life or others.

Some encouraging people have told you what you should do or say to make things better in your life, yet the advice hasn’t been anything you bother putting into practice.  Maybe the following tips will bring you the peace you need or maybe not.  It all depends on your mindset and what you are willing to receive. Remember at the start of this writing I shared that I had to make up in my mind to change.
When someone isn’t happy with his or her life, it is usually because the individual isn’t at peace with one's life choices.  The person struggles with whether he or she should make adjustments, but doesn't want to do anything about problems because the individual feels like one doesn't have enough knowledge, money, time or some other reason.  So that brings us to the first point.

Obtain knowledge on what burdens you the most.  From parenting to finances, there is so much free information that can help you answer all your questions.  You don’t need money for that, but you do need time.  Many people will say they don’t have the time to read a book, watch a movie, or listen to meditative music, if this is how you feel, then your burden may not be as important as you think. 
When you really want to do something about a problem, you will make the time!  You’re doing it now, reading this article.  If your husband or wife told you he or she is leaving the relationship, you would make the time to talk with him or her, wouldn’t you?  If someone told you that your favorite sports team was playing at an arena and they had VIP seating and you're invited, you would make the time to attend the game, wouldn’t you?  People are only as busy as they choose to be, so the first thing you need to do is clear some space in your schedule to tend to the things that bother you the most.  Is it your job?  Look for opportunities within the organization to advance.  Children driving you crazy?  Take time for yourself to find out what you need to do to settle them and your nerves down.  Husband still cheating?  You put up with that long enough, focus on an exit plan and obtain legal counsel.  Wife spending too much money?  Find out how to communicate your concern effectively.  Find the information you need to resolve the problem.
Next, after you have educated yourself on what bothers you, make a written plan and abide by it.  For instance, let’s say you have an illness, the doctor gave you tips and a prescription that will help you feel better.  You know you will have to possibly change eating habits, exercise, or refrain from certain activities as well.  Create a plan and post it somewhere in your home that you can see everyday.  People who are the most successful with accomplishing their goals will write them down.
Third, inform the people who will be affected by your plan of what you are doing.  If you feel that the adjustments you make in your life won’t affect them, then it won’t be necessary to let anyone know.  However, when changes occur and they affect other people, someone most likely will be upset if you just expect them to do things differently just because you want them to.  So when possible communicate changes.  Unnecessary arguments happen all the time because a person didn’t bother to let the other know.

Fourth, document your success.  For instance, you need to save money, you read about the ways to do it, you made your plan, now document all the times you successfully saved money.  When you read what you had written on a later date and notice all of the accomplishments you have made you will feel good about yourself sticking to your goal.  Reward yourself when you are able to, thanking you for being you!  Don't expect others to praise you, encourage yourself!

Lastly, when you have accomplished your personal and professional goals, share your knowledge with someone else who may be going through the storm you just got over.  You might make a great best friend when you do this.  As a result of your personal experiences, you will be able to tell that person of your journey to rise above difficult people and circumstances.

My Thoughts on Online Marketing

Interviewing, writing, and posting material is something that I have been doing for quite some time on a variety of publishing formats.  From the early days of Twitter to newer sites around the web, content is king and everyone wants it, but everyone doesn't have the time to devote to it. 

I have read numerous articles about all things related to writing, publishing, video marketing--you name it.  One thing I consistently see is the lack of transparency with many of these so-called experts who claim to know how to increase traffic to our blogs and websites.  The information is obvious most often and redundant.  What I have learned is that you have to meet with a guru face-to-face (sometimes pay for his over-priced system), buy many books, and/or befriend a person who knows the tricks of the Internet world when it comes to marketing, building a social media presence and more.  Most successful, online businesses pay for specific tools and human labor to increase page traffic, build subscribers and more.  These "tools" can be quite expensive and confusing.  Use the wrongs ones and you will lose everything that you worked hard to build.

If you are like me, always seeking ways to improve your online products, services and other things you offer people, just take note of what is already being done.  You don't change what isn't broken.  I think many of these prosperous businesses remain that way, because they aren't changing just because everyone else is and if they don't see where something is broken, they leave it alone.  But for those systems that no longer work after they have tweaked existing strategies, analyzed results (or lack thereof ) they then rid themselves of them.

Another observation I have about online marketing and businesses is that they usually find sources of traffic in ways that most others don't.  They may link up with offline organizations to drive traffic to their sites.  They do things like become members of known groups in their industries paying top dollar to join, they will have online or offline meet ups, create a theme event addressing a specific community need, or partner with others while promoting their brands.  These are just some of the things that they do and that I have been a part of to help drive traffic. 

So when you think outside of the box when marketing your own business that is a good thing because wherever the people are, sooner or later they are going to get on the Internet, look you up and see what it is that you do.  Once they do that, they will make a decision whether to partner with you or not.  Therefore, be sure that you represent yourself well and if you need assistance, by all means reach out.

Wix Websites - Easy, Free

Lately Wix has been back in the media showing us just how easy it is to make a website.  Awhile back, I decided to go for it.  It  really is so simple that an elementary school-aged kid can create one.  If you would like a website, take a go at it and if it gets to be a bit too challenging, let's talk about it. My rates are reasonable.  Here is what I put together, see Nicholl McGuire Media
