ANCE 2017 - Backstage One Minute Interview with Ken Seto

5 Ways to Increase Your Self-Confidence

We all know them. You know the ones, those self-confident individuals who always seem to be in control. They make snap decisions, appear to be more successful than most people, and possess an inner strength that is almost visible.

You admire their self-assurance and firmness of opinion. Such characteristics arise from inner beliefs in one's ability. If you would like to be more self-assured, practice the following tips which can help you formulate a strong, healthy self-image, full of conviction and self-confidence.

1 – Understand Your Strengths... and Weaknesses

Self-confident people know what they are good at, and what they are not very good at. Confidence definitely means feeling good about your ability to do certain things. However, it also means understanding those areas where you need to improve. A confident person readily accepts they are not the best at everything.

2 – Look On the Positive Side

Bad things happen all the time. You need look no further than your daily news broadcast to see that the world has a lot of problems. Self-assured individuals understand this. However, they do not focus on the negative side of life. They can always find the silver lining in every cloud, and a positive spin on a negative event.

3 – Don't Let Failure Stop You

A failure is an event, it is not you are. The most successful, self-assured individuals with true conviction in their beliefs and abilities have failed hundreds and even thousands of times. They are not scared of a failure, and certainly don't let it keep them from succeeding in the future. Norman Bernard Larsen invented WD-40 on his 40th try. The world would not benefit from this all-in-one miracle household product today if Larson had given up on his 10th, or 20th, or 39th attempt.

4 – Spend Time with Positive People

Confident people surround themselves with other confident people. These people tend to be positive as opposed to negative in nature. Their self-belief is contagious, and makes people want to be around them. Negative people want to bring others down to their level, and positive, self-assured individuals spend time with confident believers in self-convictions that push them to be more of who they are.

5 – Use the Right Body Language

You can "trick" your mind into believing that you are self-confident. This will lead to confident, assured actions and behaviors. Pull your shoulders back. Stand erect. Look people in the eye. Practice good posture. Don't slouch. Shake hands firmly. Smile more often. Speak slowly and clearly. These are all traits of self-confident people, and simply by adopting these postures and confidence boosting tips, you will begin to feel more self-assured.

To your success,

Networking with previous customers

Most of the network marketers are busy using every source and resource to recruit new distributors and neglect to develop and grow the customer base, loyalty and value.

On the other hand, your direct contacts and customers may provide advice and support and it is THEIR contacts that create a new customer base, introduce you to the person who would need what they also use.  Perhaps the term business networking is a misnomer.  Think of it as people networking, because it is PEOPLE that make networking successful.

Do not forget to ask them the best question what I learned from Dale Calvert years ago: "Who do you know, who (..would benefit from this product, who shall use this product)  I use this question also asking for new distributor referrals, targeted by area, profession or skill.

Your previous customers are going to be valuable to your future business. As you get each new customer you want to network with that customer again in the future, to keep your business in their mind, and to keep them on as a walking and talking billboard for your business.  The future of your business is going to evolve to include repeat customers, and referral customers, both of which are vital to the ongoing relationship of your business, the consumer, and the local surroundings of your business. You shall aim to turn your customers to your ambassadors.

How can you network with your previous customers?

Even if your customers are online – or if they are offline, you can network with your customers. A simple note, or email is going to do the trick. Ask about their day; talk with them by name, and offer advice or to continue with the conversation when they have time to chat with you. Talk with your customers about what they have purchased, or how it worked for them. Ask if there is anything that can be done to improve the process, they went through while dealing with your business.That makes everybody feel important and it is also really important to have their honest feedback.

Network with your largest clients by taking them to lunch, or ordering them something special and having it delivered to their home. As you continue to acknowledge your largest clients, they will keep you fresh in their minds. They will tell others about what you have sent to them, and how they feel about your business.

The online business is going to use newsletters, e-zines, emails and coupons sent to previous customers as a method of networking and keeping in contact with previous customers. Keeping the lines of communication open with a customer, and with a previous customer is going to increase awareness of your products, and what you have for sale. This in turn is going to increase sales, one repeat customer at a time. But do not forget text messages and phone calls.

Never forget about your previous customers. In the offline business, and in online business you can network with your previous customers by creating mailing lists and using these mailing lists. State something along the lines of – because we have done business in the past, we find that now is the time to offer you this great advantage what  we now have, and would like to give you a special price. Yes this is still advertising, but networking at the same time because you have established a relationship with that customer already and it makes her feel good that you did not forget her and she was not only a transaction. Everybody likes to be treated nice and feel important. That creates a goodwill toward you and your business.

To your success,

Daily Tricks to Keep Yourself Motivated

When you feel motivated and inspired you have no trouble getting your work done, being in a good mood, building your MLM business, working on your goals. You want to keep those feelings going as much as possible. You will have times when you just don't feel it, but for daily life there are some things you can do to keep your motivation up and keep pushing forward.

Zig Ziglar is quoted as saying,  
"They say motivation doesn't last. Neither does bathing, that's why we recommend it daily."

Yes, keeping yourself motivated is something you should work at daily. Even personal development coaches have to keep themselves motivated. Here's a few things you can do to make it a part of your every day life.

Keep inspiring pictures and messages around your home, especially in places you see often; around your desk if you work from home, on the bathroom mirror, on the fridge, and even on your cabinet doors in the kitchen.

The trick to using this method is to change things up on a regular basis. You get used to seeing the same things all the time and begin to ignore them. When you rearrange things your mind pays attention because it's different. Once you realize your mind has gotten used to it, it's time to rearrange again.

Use positive affirmations every day. You can choose one or two that you repeat to yourself over a period of time, or you can choose a new one each day. Like with the pictures, you may want to change this up to keep from getting bored. Your mind does need repetition so it will grasp the concept or idea you're trying to impose on it, but it can also grow tired of the same message if used too much and too often.

One good way to keep things fresh and fun is to pick a new themed affirmation each week. This gives you time to use the repetitious phrase, but not so much time that it becomes a drag.

Give yourself daily reminders of why you want to be motivated. Is it because you feel better, you're in a better mood or because you're working on some goals that are important to you? Whatever the reason, keep it in mind with daily reminders. Working towards goals can get overwhelming at times, but if you remind yourself of why you're doing it, it's much easier to stay motivated and keep working towards it.

Write down your expectations. This is similar to having a why, but with this method you write down what you plan to achieve by staying positive and motivated. It could be to attract better friendships or better business opportunities, or it could be to be a nicer person all around. Whatever you're trying to accomplish, be sure to write it down and create a very vivid image of it in your mind. Remind yourself of this often and visualize it often as well.

Talk to yourself in the mirror. Many people have success with giving themselves a pep talk in the mirror each morning. They do admit it seemed silly in the beginning and they felt awkward doing it, but over time it becomes natural. Sometimes you are your own best cheerleader. Daily pep talks can set the mood for your day and make it more positive. You can also do this throughout the day if you start to feel a low moment coming on or things don't seem to be going well.

Get a motivation partner. If you struggle to keep yourself motivated and in a positive mood, find someone who will inspire you. This should be an upbeat friend who seems to always be in a good mood, but it doesn't have to be. Perhaps you have a friend who wants to be in a better mood more often, but is also struggling with it. You can team up and send each other daily positive messages to keep each other motivated.

Even though this person doesn't have to be the most upbeat person, you definitely want to steer clear of a negative person as a partner. Although they may mean well and want to work at it, more often than not their negativity will creep in and bring you down. You may very well want to help this person out, but in these situations it's best to cheer them on weekly and not as a daily motivation partner.

It's hard to stay constantly motivated, but if you use some of the tips mentioned above on a regular basis, you'll find that you can stay motivated far longer and accomplish what you set out to do. Any change takes time and work. Stick to it and before you know it, motivation will be like second nature.

To your success,
