How you Can Take Action Today

Swimming in the ocean, DIY Marketing - Studio of Ideas

A couple of weeks ago, I went snorkeling in Cozumel, Mexico. It was the first time that I ever went snorkeling.

You should’ve seen me, I was uncomfortable and nervous and kept wondering if I would bump into a shark.

After about 15 minutes and countless mouthfuls of salt water, I finally was getting the hang of keeping my head in the water while I breathed through my mouth.

And I was swimming further away from the instructor (about one foot away), versus me holding onto his arm with a death grip).

I couldn’t believe it – my mind was blown!

There were so many beautiful colorful fish and other sea life swimming around that were within my reach. I had no idea how exciting it was looking under the water!

In fact, there is literally a whole new world under the sea! 

It got me thinking about how escaping your fears and pushing your limits to explore other opportunities or new ‘worlds’ is so important – especially in business. Because it just may be more exciting than you ever imagined.

Take action

You need to do things that you may not be comfortable doing such as: networking, sales, marketing or calling your clients about late payments.

And when you get out of your comfort zone and take action and say: “I’m going to do this!” you’ll be glad that you did.

So why not do something you’ve been putting off, like:

  • Join a couple of Facebook groups and make new connections
  • Speak at a Chamber of Commerce meeting and share tips with others
  • Launch your marketing program that you have been scared to put out to the world
  • Do Weekly Facebook videos so your fans can get to know you better

When you push yourself and market yourself like a Rockstar by using great marketing ideas, you will make all your fans and followers happy because they are constantly waiting to hear from you and hear all about your new products and services so they can support you and buy more from you! (Whew…that was a mouth-ful!)

And when you do this new something – like launch some fun promotional ideas… (or whatever it is), comment below so I can celebrate your Win with you and High-Five you!! 🙂

Hope this little story inspires you to get out there and take action with another step towards reaching your goals today!
