I just read in order to change your paradigm thinking…You had to experience an emotional loss or tragedy or do the opposite of what you’ve always done.
Sounds pretty innovating!
I’ve experienced many situations that have changed my paradigm thinking. I can’t be or do what I’ve always done. I’m totally doing the opposite. Opposite mindset of what I had. Tragedies really are our best teachers and needed for us to rise from the ashes like a Powerful Phoenix. Just know results take time. What matters is you don’t stop. It’s a lifestyle for me because it’s something I’ve been wanting to change about my life and what my doctor recommended me to do.
I was soo bummed when I gained soo much weight. This has been the heaviest I’ve been. And I’m not in comparison with nobody. I’m my own worse critic because I’m hard on myself and always push myself to achieve soo when I hit my lowest I was a mess! Things are soo different now! I’m more confident, own my own inner power, unstoppable and have made drastic changes which are leading me to see results. It’s not always going to be a clean eating day… as celebrations pop up, birthdays, wine day, but what matters is you make it the best you can. I’ve said if your craving a hershey kiss chocolate eat it as when you deprive yourself it’s more likely you’ll indulge not in 1 but the whole bag! It’s not too late to get back in shape. 2016 is the year of lessons. It’s Graduation time! 🎓 so you can start 2017 the year of Leadership on the right foot and brand spanking new!
Finish the year STRONG! X
It’s very common for body shops to vary on estimates. One auto shop might give you an estimate of $2000 mean while the other one 10 blocks down might charge you $800. ow, what’s the difference? and is it ok to go with the cheapest shop?
Here are some tips to give you a better understanding
1) Focus on what previous customers are saying
Any company can do a good marketing campaign, what there is no better campaign than those words coming from your closest friends or family Mike from AP Auto Body San Diego. You might be surprised on the reputation “X” body shop may have.
David shops in San Diego charges $40 hour but in chula vista other shops they charge $70 hour while others have heard of $90 per hour. Large body shops with big buildings and lot of managers give confidence of feeling, but results can include a high amount estimate. Other shops mention they work by rules of hours, meaning they have set standards labor rates.
3) Get estimates from different body shops
Take your vehicle to several body shops to get quotes for the work. It’s good for you to protect from companies trying to over charge you just shouldn’t go by the cheapest price. You could be risking quality of work.
I had shared blog post on being lost in darkness in the woods (most darkest place I’ve encountered without a flashlight) and as I think about that event and how I got out of it I had to pat me in the shoulders 🙂
I don’t say this so people can feel bad for me it’s the last thing I want as I’m a strong female however I say it with the intention to inspire others that it doesn’t matter what dark place your at whether it’s the woods, rock bottom, divorced, desperation… You must “act”‘ even if you don’t feel like moving…
Now that I see it with a broader lense being lost was “no big” deal but at that time it was! Definitely my past experiences have molded me into this strong feminine female to deal with whatever comes up.
It’s quite alright to be feminine and strong
I’m no longer in direct sales (network marketing) however if there is one nugget I learned in my 5 year tenure that can help anyone as I’m seeing several posts on my feed of people leaving their teams or not being proactive in their business using their products it’s this:
Before any recognition of having your newest person in your team and right after they sign the dotted line whether in person or virtually
BLUEPRINT them. (Unless you recruited a 6-7 figure heavy hitter that knows what they’re doing and you personally know him/her)
Get to know them. Communicate. Be interested. What are their goals?
By not doing this 2 things will happen I can guarantee you:
1) They will not be interested in working with the company or your team
2) They will leave.
Every day in every way in every relationship your marketing your ideas to be heard. You want customers to recommend you, clients to hire you. Your Influence is key.
The same way your newest person wants to be heard of their Why. Why they decided to venture a new business with you. After all it did cost money. Money they probably had to borrow, work for and we all know money doesn’t grow on trees.
Point is if you master being influential & influence human behavior you can win better relationships, greater admiration & deeper trust.
