In this video, I am discussing the powerful action of making a decision.
Ahhh February, the month of love! Besides being loving to the people in your life, I want to talk about the love you give to yourself. Self-care is so important to our well- being, and yet many times we push it aside because we are caring for others.
Many successful people start their day with a morning routine. Maybe you have one. If you don’t, here is a sample that you can adapt to your schedule:
Imagine beginning your day thinking about what makes you happy. Smiles of people you love are flowing through your brain. You pray or meditate on what you have planned for the day. Next you drink a glass of refreshing water to get your day started. You do some stretches and take a 20 minute walk or do a dance to some of your favorite music. You shower and eat a nutritious breakfast that gets you energized for the day. You write a few sentences in your journal about what you are thankful for.
And you’re off…to work in an office or work at home.
I want to ask you how satisfied you are with your work because as we all know, stress can be a significant factor in how we think and feel. Constant stress can take a toll on your health and relationships. I would love to help you design a career you love so you can choose joy every day!
That is why I want to invite you to talk with me in a free Design a Career You Love Strategy Session.
You will obtain a sense of clarity about what you want to accomplish next in your career and discover what is holding you back from achieving your goals. If you have a small business, we will talk about how to boost your results.
Leave the consultation knowing what steps you need to take next in your career journey.

I recently attended a women’s luncheon where we were asked to discuss questions that we should ask ourselves in business. One of our sets of questions was “What do you really, really want in your business and life? and Is what you are doing now lining up with what you say you want?
Another set was “When was the last time you experienced uncertainty in your business and what did you do to get you through?” Summer is the perfect time to reflect on these questions so we can move forward with clarity and increased productivity.
Take your favorite beverage, a pen, and paper to a quiet place. As you slow down, you will have the time to think about ways to move further in the direction you want to go. What will be your answer to, “What do you really want?”
Spring is finally here and so is the time for new ideas. Whether you work for a business or have your own, we are constantly looking for ways to reach and serve our customers.
There is so much noise out on the internet that I can barely hear myself think. Instead of trying too many methods at once, I suggest tailoring the methods to your specific audience and meet them where they are gathering.
When I was searching for the best way to reach my customers, I found a guide that was very helpful at Lead Pages.com. Just go to https://www.leadpages.net/landing-pages and download your copy.
It is called 42 Lead Generation Ideas. Look through the sections and see which ones appeal to your style of communication. I know it will give a boost to your business.
Here we are at the end of 2017! Get a jump start for the new year and make your new business plan now. December not only means a time of celebration with our families but it is also time to celebrate what we have done in our business! Take some time to review your accomplishments for the year. It will give you a boost when you begin to plan for the new year. Block out some time for you to think about what goals you want to achieve and what your focus will be.
School is out for the summer, but I want to talk about one equation we all need to master for maximum success in life and business. Focus + Action = Results. You can be laser focused on your results and have the best information available, but without action you will not move forward. By contrast, you can be very busy taking action every day without focus and not achieve the results you want. With a clear plan, you will take less time to get further.
We know this, but it can be challenging to decide where your focus should be. In business, one great question to ask yourself is, “What income-generating activities am I going to do today?” Then make those the first priority of the day. This way you can feel accomplished and not get lost in the minutiae.
Try a different method to achieve better results
One example I want to share is I recently wanted to find a new way to engage my customers when they come to my web site. Many web sites now have chat bots that pop up when you visit. I wanted to see if these would make a difference for me. I found a company called Drift.com. The free version of the program makes it possible for me to interact with customers when they visit my site. The chat bots will also make it possible for customers to leave messages when I am not online. If you are interested, the paid version will schedule appointments for you.
To see how these chat bots work in real time, please visit my web site at MariaLuchsinger.com. I would love to hear from you!
Focus + Action = Results. If you do not produce the results you want, you can use the information you learn to make your products and services better.
Do you ever take time to think about your achievements? I don’t need to remind you that life is moving very fast these days. Phone calls, email, deadlines, client appointments, children’s schedules, and numerous responsibilities are part of every day. Congratulations. In the middle of all that activity, you have managed to achieve success! People have been helped. Projects are finished. New ideas have been generated and innovation applied to your business and your life.
My father once told me, “Take a little time each day to think about what you have accomplished.” I think he said this because when we reflect on the progress we have already made, it builds our confidence and gives us fuel for future endeavors.
So when you are reflecting on your day, celebrate the small successes as well as the big ones. I want to encourage you to write down your accomplishments in a journal every day. I believe you will see a significant difference in your energy levels and you will find inspiration for the future.
Note to Women: There is a place in the paperback journal I developed called The Queen’s Journal: Inspiration for Action to record your accomplishments for the day.
