It was great to start a conversation about goals, actions and achievements at a workshop last week.
Speaking with a roomful of people – on 28 January – about how to #SetGoalsAndTakeAction caused me to think about the benefits you get from pursuing your dreams.
If you are in the right frame of mind to change your life you can have a brilliant year. Positive thinking will open your mind to the key messages from inspiring live speakers, or writers appearing across social media.
If you are on the lookout for inspiring, motivating and action-oriented content you might want to search out material offering these outcomes:
Effective Content Offers These 3 Outcomes
- It Solves Your Specific Problem – How does the story being told connect directly to your situation? People like to learn how to resolve their situation by following the example of someone who has been there already. How can you apply the lessons on offer?
- It Suggests An Alternative View – Does the material give evidence that challenges your views? It might be worth considering what is being said, since it could influence you to take a fresh look at a familiar topic. Your creativity may be triggered, highlighting a new way forward.
- It Stirs You To Take Action – Does the speech get you fired up so that you want to move forward beyond your limiting beliefs? If it is persuasive you might feel compelled to take a beneficial action straightaway.
What Can You Do To Promote Useful Content?
If you see a presentation or a post which combines those 3 elements you will probably want to add your comment, or share your experience with other people in your network, so they can benefit from it too.
Your commentary or authentic word of mouth recommendation is very valuable and can make an idea get the attention it deserves.
In other words your Facebook ‘Like’ or Twitter ReTweet can spread the word far and wide.
