Happy Monday everyone! The PositivityChange.com newsletter is back with an all-new name (PositivityChange.com Post) and another lesson on manifesting positive change in your personal and professional lives. This is a very different newsletter because I have learned something over the past week because a lot of things have happened that I want to share with you! As this Post’s title says, it is all about learning, growing and earning.
I have also done a PositivityChange Facebook Live about what I have learned from my first 71 Blogtalkradio episodes (Combining my 23 Project Management Minute podcasts and I have done 94 episodes’ worth of content). It is amazing how many things podcasting have taught me about content creation and time management.
When you learn, you grow and on last Thursday’s Positive Change Radio, I discussed how you can stay positive during growing pains. Remember, growing pains represent your new normal. You are outgrowing your current life and need to acquire some new skills in order to be your best. Sometimes growing pains can be a sad process because it means shredding the familiar people and comfort zone you’ve come accustomed to; but, when you grow, you cannot EVER return to your past life.
Last week I had found an error that has (positively) impacted my ability to earn. I switched online store platforms 3 months ago and wondered about below average sales. I didn’t know what was happening until I debuted my store blog. When I tried republishing it onto Medium, I received an error. What I later learned was that there was a code blocking customers from buying my items. I fixed not only the blog’s code but all of my URL shorteners resulting in a new sale that Thursday night!
Now that everything is right, I have a very announcement to make: my entire https://carlarjenkins.selz.com store is 10% off using the LOVE10 code! From now until February 28th, you will receive 10% off all purchases. This means that you can buy my Amazon bestselling Expand Your Personal Brand book, workbook, and the bundle.
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!
