Is “Try” Part of Your Business Plan?

tryI read a post recently that really impacted my thinking process! It was on Google + by  Tracy Myers, sharing this “profound statement” his 12 year old son had said that morning:

“I’m not going to try and be successful. I’m just going to be successful.”  Tracy added, “Positive affirmation works! Believe that!”

This statement triggered my mind  into wondering: how many times have I said and even trained others to “fake it till you make it” and instilled in my mind that it is OK to keep “trying” without thinking of whether I am successful or really just faking success? When we make out our daily “to do” list do we really intend to do it, or is it OK to have a “try” list, and not a positive affirmation that we will do what we put on our list?

Do we realize the real difference between “try” and “do?”  I found that in many other languages the word “try” is not used as we do!  How many times do you find yourself saying “I’ll try” or “I’m trying” daily versus the mindset of  saying Yes I am or No I’m not?

As for me I don’t want my doctor to “try” and solve my issues, I want him to do it, don’t you? How about the pilot on your next plane trip? I don’t want them to “try” to get me to my destination, I want to arrive safely and on time.  When you ask someone to come to an event, when they say “I’ll try,” do you really expect to see them?

I’m sure my clients don’t want me to “try” and provide a speaker or presenter for their next event, they are expecting me to just “do it” and yes, bring the #WOWfactor as I know all my talented professionals can!

In my business and life, I’m in agreement with Tracy’s son: I’ve eliminated the “try” stage in my mind, and in my language. Either I am being and doing, or I’m not! Do I fail at my doing? Sure, but then I learn and continue on being and doing, try is not an option!

Take a look at your life.  Are you in the business of doing, or are you just “trying?”

How to Use Your Creative Spirit to Bring the #WOWfactor to Your Upcoming Event

When you’re planning an event it’s important to look for out-of-the-box ways to spice things up so that your attendees/guests are excited about attending your event. Think about the events that you’ve attended… what made them memorable?

One event that comes to mind for me is The Color Run. Marketing themselves as “The Happiest 5K on the Planet”, this never-attempted event has turned into a phenomenon. People love the idea of “being the first” and saying “I was there when it started.”  If you decide to participate in one of their events you know you’re going to have an unforgettable experience! I’d say they bring the #WOWfactor to their events… wouldn’t you?

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
~Vincent Van Gogh

Here’s some ideas you can use to bring the #WOWfactor your events:

  • Have a vision. Any time you’re planning an event, you have the opportunity to create something meaningful for those who will be participating. Put some thought into it and have a vision for your event. Decide to be daringly creative… think “out of the box”.
  • Generate a buzz about your event. When you communicate with your potential attendees/guests, get them excited about attending your event. Be creative with your invitations, announcements, promotional materials, email lists, etc.
    When you engage in new and exciting ways they’ll want to share their excitement with others.
  • Make it unforgettable. Make them feel like a VIP! The experience you provide your attendees/guests is everything! Get creative with a welcome video. Share your story… let them share their stories. Create a closing video. Take photos.
    Give them something to remember. When you do, you’ll be known for bringing the #WOWfactor to your events.
