[PositivityChange Post Issue 38] My Life, My Life, My Life, My Life in the Sunshine

Hey everyone!

It is getting very hot here in the US! Right now where I live it is boiling and will get even hotter as the week transpires! This issue is about keeping cool and staying healthy during summer (because NOT having a sun headache is ALWAYS positive!), While I am talking about shining bright, I am happy to announce that my article Increasing Your Career Savviness has gotten over 100 likes and 200 views on LinkedIn! I am overjoyed by the response because all I initially wanted to do was show people that the very same tools that big business used for your own personal career.

Now onto the summer health care:

PositivityChange Post : Issue 35 : Finding Positive Change on Social Media

Hey everyone!

Welcome to an all-new PositivityChange Post issue! Here I am going to discuss how to find positive change on social media. The Internet can be a nasty and demoralizing place where people are doxing (term for posting personally identifiable information on the Internet without their permission). However, there are beacons of hope that I want to highlight!

But, first I have a big announcement to share with everyone: My Increase Your Career Savviness article has been added to Medium’s Personal Branding channel! This is huge news because Medium is one of the biggest blogs out there. Moreover, as an Amazon bestseller with a personal branding book (shameless plug!),  being added is confirmation that I know what I am talking about.

Now here are some of my great positive change places to go on the Internet:

PositivityChange Post : Issue 34 : You Want to Learn How to Positively Pivot Your Career? Read Here!

Welcome to an all-new issue! We are talking about pivoting and positioning yourself for greatness! This is a very appropriate message with all of the many college graduates receiving their degrees. Even if you have been over a decade removed from Pomp and Circumstance blaring in the background while you cross the stage, pivoting is still important. Now is just as a good time as ever to evaluate your career. Maybe you have graduated from your current work life and feel the need to do something different. I am feeling just like you today. This morning I have awakened to learn that my Increasing You Career Savviness article has received 100 views and 50 likes on LinkedIn! It is a career pivoting experience for me because I have implemented changes that my sales coach has requested. Also unlike last year, now I know how to build upon this momentum. I have learned that alluring titles and posting to related LinkedIn groups spread my message farther than by myself. In 2016, I didn’t have a strategy for capitalizing upon receiving high recognition whenever one of my posts went viral. Now with nearly two years of blogging under my belt, I know have a social media strategy. There will be a follow-up article delving deeper into S.W.O.T. Analysis coming soon this week. As a loyal subscriber, you will get the article link as soon as I publish it. However, I will say that content is still king! I magnify this because there is an abundance of spam posts and bad writing on LinkedIn Pulse. I have always taken the approach that I have to post my best work on LinkedIn because it is the business social media site.  When you post into groups, your peers are judging the cohesiveness of your post. You don’t want to embarrass yourself through spam.

PositivityChange Post Issue 25 Taking the Pulse on Positive Change

I am very happy to have reached 25 issues with you! This newsletter always makes me think and gives me hope towards being optimistic about the future. Through this period, you have seen the changes. I have responded to subscriber surveys to give you, the reader, the stuff that you truly want in your inbox. This issue is no different. Last week I gave everyone a survey and here are the results: you want more professional resources. You got it!

I have found a change article from the Kotter International. For those who do not know, the Kotter International is one of the preeminent change management organizations in the world. It partners with Forbes and Huffington Post sharing its change management theories. In the Forbes article, Kotter International dishes on the five ways that both workers and companies can balance change without blaming each other. This article aligns with PositivityChange’s mantra of helping you manifest positive change in your personal and professional lives.

Newsletter : Issue 22 : Spreading Positive Change Everywhere!

 

Hey everyone! This is Carla and I hope that you are enjoying February as much as I am! I know that Valentine’s Day is next Tuesday but I refuse to relegate love next week. I want to spread love and positive change everywhere! So right now I have decided to dedicate two weeks (thus far) towards spreading love. In this issue I will give you resources necessary to help you manifest positive change in both your personal and professional lives. Remember, achieving positive change is always an inside job!

It is very hard to create positive change. There I have said it! Positive change is harder than negative change because it requires more work. It is easier getting downsized than promoted. It is easier getting in a funk than coming out of one. However, just because positive change requires more does not mean that it is impossible.

Personal positive change

I have come across this resource from Tiny Buddha about positive change and energy. If you have read the blog, you would have seen some mindfulness articles. I am a big believer in mindfulness and shifting your energy. These activities take diligence and practice; however, they can be done. The article states that music is the easiest (but not the only way) to shift your energy. Myself, I love writing in my journal. It is organic and as soon as I write down my thoughts, I feel the energy leave my body and onto the pen and paper. Writing truly helps me when I am having a bad day and need to shift my energy quickly. Here is the Tiny Buddha article for other ways to positively shift your energy!

Professional positive change

We do not live in a bubble. Even if you are teleworking, you are still a part of a team. You will have some type of human interaction throughout the workweek. Therefore, it is essential that you guard your energy from certain coworkers or even managers. They could be energy vampires. Moreover, if you are at a company or in an industry where you are on the bad side of the business cycle, your environment will be filled with doubt. Here is a LinkedIn article giving you realistic steps towards dealing with change in the workplace.

Remember, every week I bring you the real about manifesting positive change. I can tell you from personal experience that it is not very. At times, it takes courage and a backup plan to realize positive change. I have been in toxic work environments. I have faced personal uncertainty; and, have come out of both of these situations better off.

Until next week, keep manifesting positive change in your personal and professional lives!

Issue 20 : What Are You Putting Up With?

I have been participating in a business mastermind as of lately. The mastermind requires a book. I start reading the first chapter and immediately get hit with a brick from its title: ‘what are you putting up with?’ This title stops me cold because I completely understand it. I have experienced a lot of growing pains due to my refusing to put up with things. That title has hit me so hard that I have gone to the Facebook group to do a video.

PositivityChange.com is a place where we help you manifest positive change in your personal and professional lives. I am asking you what are you putting up with now? Watch the video below.

Newsletter : Issue 17 : Pivot on Positive Change in 2017!

 

Happy New Year everyone!

This year I am pivoting my life and career towards growth and experiencing more positive change. I am also in a very different position now than when I started this blog in July 2015. I am relying more on blogging than working a job. Also 2016 was my first full year of blogging. This demanded a whole lot of commitment. My 2016 highlight was the December time management series because I felt that these articles helped so many people maximize their time. I did a lot of livestreaming (mainly Periscope and Facebook Live) to expand my message. I ended the time management series on a high note with the FREE YouTube Live time management webinar. You can watch it here: www.positivitychange.com/timemanagement.

In 2017 my goal is to bring more positive change news. I will supply more change management resources. Also I will do more livestreaming and events. Speaking of events, this Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 12pm EST, Goddess Fish will host my Expand Your Personal Brand workbook Facebook party. I have decided to kick off 2017 with a party because I want people to manifest positive change in their personal and professional lives. My workbook accomplishes this for less than $10. You can buy it here: www.expandyourpersonalbrand.com/workbook.
