WARRIOR of Reciprocity

By traditional definition, lingo means to speak the jargon of a group or individual. It’s important as we continue to discuss lingo and the lessons taught in my book, LINGO, that you understand how I define it. I define lingo as understanding someone’s essence. Ironically, to speak someone’s lingo is more about the unspoken word. It’s creating the energetic connection that you get each other and are speaking the same language. Yes, the words and jargon are important. But only after you “get” them.

Perception is everything in business. You want people to be able to look at you and your brand, and feel a connection. When a customer feels they know you, what you stand for, and even who you are on a personal level, they will want to be loyal to you. It’s often times scary for us to put ourselves out there. As business owners we want to hide behind our business name.

When you think about your business as building a community and not just a business, it ups the game about how you think about the people who are going to provide for your business and your life. You will treat them as you would treat your friends and peers; as if you were going to meet each person face to face and make it a personal experience. I also provide some tips on how this can affect your email practices and how to create brand bonding.

WARRIOR OF INDEPENDENCE        

We always hear the story of someone quitting their 9 to 5 job in the corporate world to become an entrepreneur.  What happens when an entrepreneur feels a need to shift? What about when they feel their mission is complete, and they want to move on to something else? There isn’t really a name for this entrepreneurial shift that happens. It’s something that many people hesitate about because they worry about their finances, or they worry it’s the wrong time.

WARRIOR OF PEACE OF MIND        

There is an interesting thing that happens when it comes to labeling people with their “potential”. Some people think they are reaching their full potential, but if you’re like me you feel like you’re not there yet. When we say someone has a lot of potential that can cause them to stop in their tracks, and think they are already enough. Some people feel like if they make a change in life they’ll lose their potential and be starting over. Others feel like they need to do everything they can to fully reach their potential – yet it’s always just out of reach.

I wrote LINGO to teach the 5-Step Secret Language Strategy to attract your ideal customers. What I realized afterward are all the other ways knowing your ideal customer’s secret language can affect your business in a positive way. For example, in this episode, I talk about how this in-depth understanding of your ideal customer can help you determine what services best serve them. That “speak” to them.

WARRIOR OF DISCIPLINE       

Being an entrepreneur can often feel like a life or death situation. You make feel awkward, uncomfortable and nervous. Believe it or not, these are all strengths. To stay on top you need to stay hungry. You need to feel worried your life will sink, because if you become complacent someone else will come along and take over the space. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you don’t have to be the first out of the gate. Just because you aren’t the first person to do something doesn’t mean you have any less of a chance of success.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

This will probably be a pretty good debate between the law of attraction and taking action. While I look at both sides, in the end, you’ll come to understand that it’s a blend of both. But I do take a side. You’ll have to listen to know how I chose and why. I also brought in a clip from my interview with Bob Proctor from two years ago. Bob was featured in the movie The Secret. You might be as surprised at what he had to say as I was.

WARRIOR OF KINDNESS       

Many times people try to lead Creative Warriors from the outside. They offer us material bonuses, or things that just aren’t satisfying. Creatives, though, chase purpose and fulfillment. That means we need to start at the heart, start with passions, and work our way from the inside out. Ultimately that means we should be working on our strengths. We should dedicate ourselves to what we are not only good at, but what we love doing. Let other people who are better than us in other areas work on our weaknesses.

SPIRIT WARRIOR       

There’s one thing so many of us do in business that hurts us more than helps. That is using our logic brain. Sometimes we need to shift our focus to our intuition and just trust our guts. Our intuition can guide us to the right path in so many ways that our conscious brains wouldn’t normally see.
