The more ‘WOW’ you become, the faster prospects will resonate with you. The more ‘WOW’ you become, the longer clients will stay with you. The more ‘WOW’ you become, the more your networks will want to help you.
Last spring I was walking in a park. A short distance ahead of me was a mum and her three-year-old daughter. The little girl was holding on to a string that was attached to a helium balloon.
All of a sudden, a sharp gust of wind took the balloon from the little girl. I braced myself for some screaming and crying.
But, no! As the little girl turned to watch her balloon go skyward, she gleefully shouted out, “Wow!”
I didn’t realize it at that moment, but that little girl taught me something.
Later that day, I received a phone call from a person with news of an unexpected problem.
I felt like responding with, “Oh no, what should we do?”
But remembering that little girl, I found myself saying, “Wow, that’s interesting! How can I help you?”
One thing’s for sure: Life’s always going to keep us off balance with its unexpected problems. That’s a given. What’s not preordained is our response. We can choose to be frustrated or fascinated.
No matter what the situation, a fascinated “Wow!” will always beat a frustrated “Oh, no.”
So the next time you experience one of life’s unexpected gusts, remember that little girl and make it a “Wow!” experience.
The sooner you can BECOME a ‘WOW’ person the sooner you change all the actions that you do each day to become greater.
If I’m being honest, very few people come close to having a wow way of ‘being’.
Their own daily problems, stresses, annoyances get in the way as they think more about survival than thriving.
* The focus on how do I survive
* How do I get in front
* How do I solve this problem
It’s this keeps us in doing mode, rather than being able to become more ‘wow’ on what we do.
Everyday I hear business owners make excuses to why they can’t do something.
Make excuses why things aren’t how they want it to be.
Make excuses to the lay of the land and blame all the outside forces.
The simple fact is everything… starts with the way you are being.
Today you have a choice to live with a WOW attitude or not.
PS: If you want to be around other people that can inspire you, challenge you, push you, so you win everyday and make a greater impact than ever before in your business, then send a message as we just might have the other people you’ve been looking for.
