The Affirmation Spot – Affirmation of the Day Tuesday September 18, 2007

“Those who need my services are on their way to using them. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve them.”

Good Tuesday morning to everyone.

Stop. Look around you right now. Everything you see around you is there because someone somewhere sold something. Sales people, and their close cousins entrepreneurs, deal with a unique amount of rejection in their jobs.

To deal with it, they have developed aphorisms to stay motivated in the face of this constant negativity. One of my favorites is, “Some will, some won’t, so what!” I have no idea who coined the phrase, but it is ubiquitious and seems to sum up the mind set that a successful sales person must have to survive.

Now I know there are many burgeoning conscious business people who read this blog. Most of you are working to better the world through your products, services, or ideas. And as you venture out into the world, you are going to face many of the closing doors that other sales and business people face. Rejection can be very personal, especially when you believe the world is in desperate need of what you have to offer.

Some will. Some won’t. So what.

You are good with the “some will” part of the equation. The people who recognize the value of what you have to offer are obviously smart, evolved individuals. :o)

You may even understand that “some won’t”. It is the “so what” part that you have a hard time swallowing. What you are doing has so much meaning to you and could have such a positive impact on the world that you want everyone to benefit from it.

It’s easy to get stuck on why some people – sometimes those who need it most – refuse to see the value in what you have to offer.

You can invest a lot of energy wondering why “some won’t”, but all you really need is the wisdom to say, “so what!” It’s hard to do when you really believe in what you are doing.

Stop. Look around you again. All those things that someone sold to someone else began with an idea – an idea just like yours. In most cases, many people said no before someone said yes. Eventually, though, the right person said yes and the rest is history.

When you are bringing value to the world -and you know you are – the world will eventually say a giant “YES” to you.

In the meantime, take a page from the old sales sages and remember, “Some will, some won’t, so what!

Have a peaceful and prosperous Tuesday!

The Affirmation Spot Solution – Tuesday September 11, 2007

The Affirmation Spot Solution

Audio affirmations are the solution for fitting affirmations into your busy schedule. Audio affirmations allow you to get your affirmation repetition in a multitasking environment. You can listen consciously or unconsciously and get the benefit of your affirmations. There is no need to set aside special time to repeat and memorize them. You “absorb” them the way you do lyrics to a song as you go through your day.

So, what’s new about audio affirmations? There are hundreds of CD affirmation sets available on Amazon or around the Internet. True, but you pay $15 – $100 for a CD set that is hard to lug around and contains many affirmations you don’t need. These sets are also bulky and hard to transport.

Digitally downloaded MP3 files, however, are easily transported on mini-devices like MP3 players or cell phones. They are readily usable on other equipment many people have access to during the day such as computers and CD players.

The Affirmation Spot allows you to:

  • Download individual affirmations in the convenient and flexible MP3 format.
  • Pay only for affirmations that you specifically select to target your professional, personal, and recreational goals rather than those selected by the company making the CD.
  • Select from three different versions of most affirmations:

    • Exercise version which is recorded to upbeat music and at a louder volume for exercise, high activity, or power motivation needs.
    • Relaxation version that is recorded to peaceful or relaxing music and at a lower volume. These affirmations can easily be listened to while working or relaxing.
    • No Music version which allows you to play your affirmations in tandem with your own soundtrack.
  • Select from an ever-growing library of MP3 affirmations, visualizations, meditations, prayers, and bible verses that allows you to use these powerful tools in areas of your life most affirmation companies have never considered.
  • Play your affirmations on any MP3-capable device – your iPod, MP3 player, MP3-capable cell phone, computer, or burn them to CDs
  • Play your affirmations where and when they will do you the most good – in the locker room before the big game, on the way to your sales call, driving in your car, or relaxing in your hammock.

Affirmations are really daily vitamins for your mind. Just like you take you take vitamins for your physical health you need your daily intake of positive thoughts of your choosing to keep you on track to your goals.

Please visit our website and look around. Try a couple of our September Featured Affirmations. As always, your thoughts, feedback, or stories about how you are using the affirmations are welcomed.

Psychologically, today is a tough anniversary for all of us. Please remember to tell the people close to you what they mean to you today.

Have a peaceful and prosperous Tuesday!

The Traditional Affirmation Dilemma – Monday September 10, 2007

The Traditional Affirmation Dilemma

Affirmations are an extremely powerful tool for creating and maintaining thoughts that support your goals in life. The question is not whether affirmations work, the science is overwhelmingly in on that point. Most people struggle and fail with affirmations when they cannot find the time to do the repetition required for affirmations to succeed.

Affirmations work much like a personal ad campaign. The only way Coca Cola alters your thinking about its products is to deliver its message repeatedly. The same goes for affirmations – your own personal ad campaign. For them to work, you have deliver the message over and over until it becomes part of the fabric of your thinking.

Traditionally, people used cards or the “mirror chat” to memorize and repeat their affirmations. But in our busy modern world, who has the time? Other people sign up for affirmation services that send affirmations daily through e-mail or by text message on their cell phone. These are great, but what about the repetition and do they really target the area of your life you are trying to impact? You have to write them down and repeat them or use them later. You’re basically back to cards or the mirror chat.

You need a way to get the repetition that allows affirmations to work and in a format that allows them to do it without disrupting your busy schedule.

Tomorrow I will discuss why audio affirmations are the solution for affirmations users with busy schedules and how modern technology like MP3 players allow you to take your affirmations with you anywhere you are and use them whenever you need to in your life.

Have a peaceful and prosperous Monday!

The Affirmation Spot – September Sale

Thursday greetings,

I’ve mentioned in a couple of previous blogs that The Affirmation Spot website was going to launch on September 1. We were able to successfully push the site to production on that day. However, the site is still a work in progress and will be for some time to come.

Someone that visited the site over the weekend wrote me to ask what had motivated me to create the site. I responded that, in my experience, no matter how confident, evolved, or enlightened we become, we all still have the very human tendency to need a boost now and again.

There is always some area of our lives that we want to improve and the way we think about those things has HUGE impact on whether or not we will make those changes in our lives. Some of us are fighting personal demons. Some are just trying to condition their minds for highest possible performance in some endeavor. Some people just need a daily reminder of how important they are and how important their work is…especially when no one seems to care or say, “thank you.”

The vision behind The Affirmation Spot is to become an iTunes of audio (mp3) positive thoughts, affirmations, meditations, and visualizations that can be taken anywhere you go during the day and played when and where you need to hear them.

During the month of September, more than 20 affirmations on the site will be 20% off. These affirmations can be found on the front page of the site.

We are very curious to know how people are using affirmations from the site. Drop me a note and let me know how you are using your affirmations and suggest any affirmations you would like to see on the site.

Have a peaceful and prosperous Friday!

Ray
