What is Personal Branding? – 01.13.2020

Personal Branding
What is Personal Branding?

Firstly, happy 2020 Millennial King!

I am incredibly grateful for 2019, another year and of course your visit to my blog post!

Now, I was exposed to personal branding about 2 years ago because I thought it was a huge thing on Instagram with beauty gurus and influencers. I bought a virtual course on it and want to share 3 takeaways from that session.

1. Discover Who You Are

Ask yourself what you are most passionate about.

What purpose do you stand for? How do you keep yourself accountable for sharing that purpose to others?

What have you accomplished so far?
What tangible things have you created for yourself that may be meaningful to others?

2. Understand The Problem You Solve to Your Market

This section is where you will ask the most tough questions because you are putting yourself in the very shoes of your ideal customer.
You have to sit and map out the who, what, where is your ideal market questions. Think about how they would like for you to show up as someone they can invest in, in order to solve this specific issue.

Also know that this advice is not the kind that you must do years of trainings to complete. This can simply be a packaged product or service that others already come to you for.

You don’t have to know everything, you just have to be 3 or 4 steps ahead of your market to leave a positive impact in your customers journey.

3. Design Your Intention

The fun and exciting part!

How will you design the space to welcome your market? What kinds of colours do they like to see? Perhaps a little research on the meaning of colours would spark a theme idea!

Lastly, do not overthink your personal brand discovery. The point of personal branding is for your audience to see your growth. We all start somewhere and life is a journey that never gets “finished” for a lack of a better word.

I’ve blogged for 7 months now and have stumbled. Let’s stumble together, you will be so proud to have taken that leap despite your fears!

We will discuss a couple statistics and prompt you some questions that will allow you to understand the services I offer to your business Pinterest account in 2020 on going forward.

Personal Accountability II – 12.09.2019

Hey Millennial King,

How are ya?

Today’s blog is bought to you by the amount of comments that I got from my original “Personal Accountability – 08.26.2019″ blog post. I had a whopping 119 comments!!

Proof is below, I think I’m very proud of you all for inquiry on this underrated topic.

I wanted to return to this because you want to hear more about believing in yourself and how that relates to your goals, correct?

Not only that but you want to get better with what you feel passionately about.

NOT only that, you want to achieve your the highest success and be recognized that you do a fairly good job, if not, the only one to do an excellent job in your niche – at what others think is soo difficult to do.

Well first, I would love to continue the sequence of the original post. It asks us toward the end of it, “4 Words: Which one best describes…. you?” And then “What are you known for?”

  1. Outstanding
  2. Good
  3. Mediocre
  4. Lousy

Fail fast and start over!

If you are currently reading this, I’m 99.9% sure you are known for your ability to achieve in an outstanding nature. Whether that be volunteering at a charity, committing to the gym or giving yourself more down time. To you, it is crucial that you do an outstanding job, otherwise what it the point of throwing in your time and effort?

I feel you on that!

It is exactly how I stay on top of my goals. Let’s be honest, I do get the once in a blue moon days where I stay at home and binge watch Youtube. But for the most part I was never into half assing anything that had my name on it.

This doesn’t mean that I am trial and error proof. I set up projects and tend to add more food than I can chew. And then of course I realize my choice of timing was not fair to me.

Greatness is in your blood

You are destined for greatness and I truly believe that. You can achieve anything you imagine which is the greatest gift of life. I do whatever it takes. Meaning if I have to connect with a thousand people in a room as an introvert, I will do it. If I have to give up girls night, won’t sweat it. If I have to give up a full 8 hour sleep and grab 4 hours, so be it.

What are you deeply passionate about? Are you currently fulfilled?

3 Essentials to Stay Motivated – 11.25.2019

3 Essentials to Stay Motivated

Hey Millennial King,

Ever thought of an awesome business idea that you want to implement that you haven’t got around to? Why is that? Well.. You probably are not aware yet because this question has been pressing on you for a while. Hence why you are here! Fire, go.

The truth to motivating yourself is to stay organized.

Here are my top 3 essentials to keep you organized, therefore, motivated!

*Disclaimer: I may receive a commission upon your purchase to any item below.  I have not purchased the listed products, however, own similar products.

1. 6-Shelf Hanging Dresser – Foldable Closet
2. Veesun Desk Organizer
3. A Productivity Planner

I personally notice how much I hold off on organizing the space around me. The more I procrastinate on it, the longer my goals take to get achieved. Us, Millennials live in what I call the “Golden Age/Information Age”, where ALL the information you ever need is right at your finger tips.

The best part of all this information is that it is free, yes – FREE!!

“Change Your Thinking” – Medium.com

Although the words “change your thinking” sound simply put, we understand that managing thoughts are more difficult than we think. However, allowing yourself to remain open minded during this shift in your mind, could be the best gift you give to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you progress.

Make your goal so simple that it’s nearly impossible to achieve.

Lastly, have fun with this! Only you know yourself best. Challenge yourself and continue to build on your smaller goals. Eventually your large goals will simplify!

5 Free Ways to Become Wealthy – 11.18.2019

5 Free Ways to Become Wealthy

The real measure of your wealth is how much you would be worth if you lost all your money.

Start building real wealth today by doing the following:

  1. Make up your mind to be happy. – Nobody can take away your pain, so don’t let anyone take away your happiness. If you want to be sad, no one in the world can make you happy. But if you make up your mind to be happy, no one and nothing on earth can take that happiness from you.
  2. Cherish your present moment. – Sometimes people are beautiful, not in looks, not in what they say, just in who they are and what they do. Remember, you will never fully appreciate all of the things someone does for you until you find yourself doing the same things for yourself. So be grateful for the people who make your life a little brighter. They are the charming gardeners who help your soul blossom.
  3. Focus on the abundance surrounding you. – With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose. No matter how far you have traveled or how many failures you have encountered, hope and positivity can still meet you anywhere.
  4. Work through your failures. – Success is not a skill; it is a persistent attitude. The difference in winning and losing is, most often, the simple act of not quitting. Before you quit, think of the reason why you held on so long, and all the progress you have made. The reason so many people give up too early is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they have come. Don’t let your fears make your decisions anymore. – Have faith that the universe has a plan for you, and it’s all being revealed in the right timeframe. Something you will eventually learn through all your ups and downs is that there are really no wrong decisions in life, just choices that will take your life down a totally different path. So take chances, follow your intuition, and allow yourself more moments of awe, wonder, inspiration and grace.
  5. Stand up for yourself. – Don’t let the people who do so little for you, control so much of your feelings and emotions. Never cry for those who don’t know the value of your tears. Stand your ground. It is better to let them walk away from you than all over you.

P.S. This post was a remake of the post right here that I created back in July which you all seemed to enjoy. Let me know what makes you wealthy. Wealth is an expectation of abundance. A mindset that can be shifted towards wealth with good abundance practices.

I still would like for you to ask yourself: What do I have that money can’t buy? And if you sense that you are grateful for that piece of something(s), gratitude is the best way to attract even more it!

What Type of Motivation Are You? – 11.04.2019

What Type of Motivation Are You?

It is astonishing to find out what motivates you on a daily basis. But more astonishing to find what makes us this way. The more we learn about how our minds work, the easier our habits can be altered to fit the goal we plan to achieve.

Below are 3 types of motivations with a description of each. Feel free to take a look at the diagram to share which one or two combinations best fit you!

Extrinsic – You are motivated by external possessions with a preference for recognition, awards and benefits. You tend to act on a goal based on your status.

Cons: You may feel inadequate when there is no reward or recognition

Intrinsic – You are motivated by internal values. You act on a goal that makes you feel joyous and fulfilled.

Cons: You may feel unworthy if you don’t achieve positive goals.

Addiction – You are motivated by feeling good.

Cons: The most destructive form of motivation.

How to Monitor Self Sabotage – 10.29.2019

How to Monitor Self Sabotage

You are here because you have at some point had a difficult time accomplishing your goals. Not only were you having a difficult time conquering but you realize that you are the problem.

Here are the 3 most common signs of self sabotage

  1. You hold onto self limiting beliefs – What are your immediate thoughts when creating a new goal? Do you believe in your obstacles more than you believe in yourself?
  2. You believe that life is happening to you, instead of happen through you – It is second nature for you to fall victim in your discussions with people and yourself.
  3. You are in agreeance with your negative self talk. Even though you know these thoughts don’t empower, you have formed a belief around your worries.
  4. There isn’t really a fourth point here but in order to be proactive, let’s dive into how you can better manage your self sabotage. When you have a couple minutes, sit down. Pick up a notebook or journal and jot down three obstacles that hinder you from achieving your goal.

Now that you have clarity to what it is holding you back, allow yourself a moment to understand that you are accountable for breathing life into those obstacles. Take this notebook as a tool to combat your months, weeks or even years of self sabotage. Here are exercises that you can begin to practice.

  • Monitor your thoughts;
  • Pay more attention to the thought patterns that make you feel good,
  • Act on what brings you joy.
