How to Get People to Trust You and Create Real Success

ConvinceInvestorAnnounce“Can you help me connect with appropriate investors?” a young startup company leader, Murray, asked me.

To be helpful, I asked him a couple of relevant questions to vet him–so I could be sure that he is ready and appropriate for me to connect with others.

He choked.

It’s understandable. It takes exposure to and rehearsing great ways to connect with new people. You need to eliminate the “red flags” that destroy trust–even when you’ve just met someone in the first few minutes.

Years ago, I choked when I did not have the coaching, rehearsal and preparation to interact effectively when meeting investors for the first time. I’m now sharing the Big Lesson I learned in my new 17 min. VIDEO “Convince Investors to Fund You” It’s Episode 7 of our YouTube Channel “Introverts Own Your Voice.” Please subscribe.

Secrets to Finding Fabulous Love after 50

Find Fabulous Love6Are you looking for love after 50, and are you stuck?

Bestselling Author and Transformation-that-Sticks Coach Junie Moon has a truly refreshing outlook on this potentially challenging time in a woman’s life.

I had the chance to interview Junie Moon and ask her some valuable questions so that we can finally know the secret on how to break through the glass ceiling of love after 50.

Tom: What’s the  #1 most important ingredient to experiencing love after 50? So many feel it’s a losing battle and give up…

Junie Moon: If someone wants to break through the glass ceiling of love over 50 and have a healthy kind of love, they must tap into their unconscious beliefs and heal the past. It’s paramount to inviting new love in and not making the same “mistakes.” Unless you access your unconscious mind and transform the programming you’ve picked up along the way, you’re going to stay in a painful holding pattern. Such a pattern includes feeling hopeless. It can get worse: You might recreate the same dysfunctional relationship you swore you’d never have again.

Tom: I hear you. So, you help women release themselves from unconscious patterns?

Junie Moon: Yes. This process helps women heal the past and shift their belief system. Then, they stop the self-sabotage and begin attracting a better partner. They stop dating the “same person” and experience love that is authentic, fulfilling and long-lasting. They also feel empowered and more confident to call in new love.

Tom: So why do you think people get so stuck and have all this self-sabotage?

Junie Moon: They’ve accumulated so much data in all their years of life. By the time people get to the second half, they have seen what doesn’t work in relationships and they’ve also experienced a ton of pain. That has them very cautious because they don’t want to get hurt again.

Tom: I’m getting a clear picture. How do you help women?

Junie Moon: I help women make a shift. They experience real transformational work. Then they truly now believe they are worthy of love. And love appears so much faster. Also, if they’re less scared about getting back out there, there are more opportunities.

Tom: This all sounds good. What makes the real difference? Some people think they’re healing, but they still don’t put themselves back out there.

Junie Moon: With my clients, and those who attend my workshops, I help them to start flying the airplane while they build it!

Tom: Tell me more about this airplane metaphor.

Junie Moon: People like to stay in their comfort zone.  So I tell people to stretch their comfort zone by adding new tools. Get back out there while you heal inside. Fly the plane as you build it. As they become aware of past patterns of self-sabotage and learn how to speak their truth, they’re moving forward. They develop healthy boundaries and feel safer. Now, they begin to see with fresh eyes. This allows deeper connection with new ways of communicating, authentically. This opens them up to Next Level Love.

Tom: So how do people learn how to fly their airplane and not crash while learning?

Junie Moon: Just like anything new: If they haven’t flown an airplane, they need instructions. They need practice and support. That’s where having a co-pilot comes in. So, this is better than just reading a book. When I’m working with a client, I am her co-pilot, and I am her coach. So she can fly her plane and be safe while she learns how to expand her comfort zone and invite love in.  It’s amazing what happens.

Tom: How can people get started with you?

Junie Moon: The easiest way to get started is to join my Facebook group “Find Fabulous Love After 50.”  ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/1962269713813419/). Some women feel it intuitively: Now is the time to take back their life and  get a coach to hold their hand as they embrace this new exciting chapter head on.  Amazing things happen for them. Those women engage me as a coach immediately and they start flying that gorgeous plane!

Tom: Thanks for bringing all this important information to light.

Junie Moon: Thanks for this opportunity to share my work. For more on Junie Moon’s work – visit WomenReclaimYourLife.com

Overcome the #1 Lie Holding Introverts Back from Massive Success

 

“Why can’t I go forward faster?” my friend, Stephanie, asked.

“Let’s get specific. What’s bothering you at the moment?” I asked.

“I got to go to this business dinner, and I feel tired just even imagining that I might attend,” she said.

As an introvert myself and in conversation with other introverts, I’ve noticed that the Big Lie about introverts is that introverts are shy. That’s not true. Shy is a set of behaviors. When I was younger, I did certain behaviors that caused other people (and me) to consider that I was shy.

Then, with mentors and training I got past those “shy behaviors.” However, I remain an introvert. Being an introvert is about one’s personal energy. With audiences I say, “An extrovert has a giant pizza pie of energy. The introvert has a pecan pie. As a comparison, someone with clinical depression has a dinner mint of energy.”

Another way to look at the lie about introverts is: It’s not true about introverts having trouble in conversations. Introverts can be some of the best conversationalists because we listen well. We think things through. And, we don’t interrupt as much as some extroverts do.

The important truth about being an introvert is about a limit on your personal energy. You need to be strategic about how you use your energy. When I was younger, I was so angry with myself for not attending every networking event and not saying yes to every opportunity to give a speech.

Then I learned the Secret for an introvert: Become really good at the few networking events you attend and the few client conversations you have. Be great in the few speeches you give to groups of prospective clients. (This is vital because introvert’s pay out energy when they are in a group of people.)

I want to help fellow introverts be able to use methods that will turn around their whole process to getting clients. So, I made 2 VIDEOS that will help you

Beware the Dark Secret of Faulty Goal Setting

IntroFormulaGetClientsLogo

For insights and powerful methods, join Tom Marcoux’s online course June 11, 2018 – The Introvert’s Formula to Get Clients

“What is a big mistake that people make related to setting a goal?” my friend, Steve, asked.

“They fail to think it through and then they suffer as one goal acts like a steamroller that destroys their life,” I replied.

It’s crucial to realize that one goal that sounds good may create such destruction that you might spend years trying to recover.

I read 82 books last year to keep updated about current research and case histories. One case history involved a man who decided to become a millionaire before the age of 42. He achieved his goal, but he was a millionaire who suffered a divorce*, and his children won’t talk to him. Seeing that case history inspired a thought in my mind: Don’t let a goal kill your life.

* I realize that some relationships simply end. However, to have a truly unhealthy relationship with your children sounds deeply painful for all involved.

To make sure we create sustainable success and happiness, we’ll use the M.A.P. Process:

M – measure
A – align
P – persist with a plan

  1. Measure

It’s vital to measure your progress, but even more important it’s crucial to choose a goal that will not disrupt your entire life.

I’ll give you an example. Currently. I am writing a third novel in a series, and my goal is to write 2,000 words a day. I use a dictation device so it’s not as hard as it would be if I was typing.

However, if I was overly ambitious or doing what I call “overstretch,” I might set a goal of 4,000 words a day. This would disrupt my other business activities. Business owners know that they need to devote enough time to lead generation and follow-up each day. In this way, you make sure that you have a have an appropriate amount of clients or customers at any given moment. You need to plant seeds to have future blossoms.

So, my choosing 2,000 words a day is appropriate and not an “overstretch.”

Measure your progress. In my book, Power Time Management, I wrote: Keep score and achieve more.

 

  1. Align

Earlier in this article, I mentioned the man who chose to devote full strength to becoming a millionaire by the age of 42, but he neglected the necessary actions to be available and present for his wife and children.

His goal of being a millionaire by the age of 42 and working in an obsessive manner reveals that he was not aligned with having a healthy, happy, fulfilling life.

Ask yourself:

  • Have I set a goal that is not realistic in terms of what else I want to be present in my life?
  • Will this goal provide me a breadth of good experiences so that I feel that I’ve had a fulfilling life?

 

  1. Persist with a plan

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower

An effective plan includes suitable breaks and days off, and times for renewing yourself in the comfort of family and in the comfort of your alone-time. (In recent research, breaks are noted as vital so one avoids terrible mistakes. Such breaks are called “Vigilance Breaks.”)

The most significant projects require a consistent devoting of energy and attention over a long period of time. So, your plan needs multiple layers.

When I work with clients to develop a list of goals, I invite them to include “Green Goals.” Think of evergreen trees. The goals include actions like daily quiet time (or prayer time), exercise, family time, solo time, so my clients stay strong.

No matter what your schedule or plan has in it, some tough surprises are coming. With a plan that helps you stay strong, you’ll be able to have a reserve of energy and good health so that you’re able to withstand the storms of life.

In summary, be sure to think it through (and to feel it through)—as you develop a plan so that a goal can support the best in you and help you create your best life.

Warmly,
Tom

Use the Secret and the Truth to Clear Your Path to Real Success and Happiness

Opendoor

Open the door and step forward to Real Success and Happiness.

“Does anybody come out and tell the truth about success and happiness?” my friend, Marina, asked.

I’ve reflected on this in the course of writing 45 books (Look inside the books when you CLICK HERE).

First, if someone (some movie or song) says that you only need one thing to be happy, the person is trying to sell your something—or they’re delusional.

On the other hand, we’ll use the H.A.P.P.Y. process:

H – have something significant to do
A – adapt to uncertainty
P – protect your strength
P – perform what nurtures your being
Y – yield to natural laws

  1. Have something significant to do

 “This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. … I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.” – George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw died at age 94. Looks like he was onto some truth. He had things to do—things he really wanted to make happen.

“The only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.” – Albert Schweitzer

“They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Each day we have opportunities to do something significant. Each time I walk into a university and see a custodian cleaning a floor or gathering the trash, I say, “Thank you for your work.” I’m grateful that I can teach MBA students in such a clean and wholesome environment. Someone made that happen, and I thank them for their work.

I might be the only one who says anything to them.

You can be the one person who brightens a person’s day.

“To stand out, find out what you stand for.” – Tom Marcoux

 

  1. Adapt to uncertainty

“There is no way to happiness; happiness is the way.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer

Ever feel like you’re on a boat that is only held together by a few strands of rope? Do you long for a time when you’ll be free of uncertainty, worries and difficulties?

My friend, don’t hold your breath. The path you are on—the path of uncertainty—is the path of happiness!

Successful people I’ve interviewed have become skillful about making progress in the face of uncertainty.

Often, I share with clients:

When you’re in action, you’re focused, and fear is a quiet voice in the background.

Don’t try to duck uncertainty. Instead, make well-considered decisions and take appropriate risks.

“Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product of a well-lived life.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

 

  1. Protect your strength

“You can help a thousand, but you can’t carry three on your back.” – Jim Rohn

We must protect our own personal strength and health. With my clients, I suggest they ask themselves: “Does this strengthen me?”

“Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.” – Meg Cabot

“Courage is easier when you’re prepared.” – Tom Marcoux

When you protect your personal strength, you have the energy and clear thinking to do the courageous actions that make your life better. My phrase is: What you dread, gets you ahead.

 

  1. Perform what nurtures your being

“Do you duty,” my father said, years ago. I replied, “I do my duty, and it’s not making me happy.” My point was that I had to do more than just “my duty”—I needed to take care myself like I would a great friend.

If your friend was visiting, you’d make sure they had great food and a comfortable place to sleep. That’s doing the right thing. Do the right things for yourself, too. Keep yourself strong and healthy.

With my clients, I emphasize what I call Green Goals which can include actions like: enjoying daily quiet time, meditation, exercise, tai chi, yoga, taking a daily walk outside, renewing times with friends and family.

Consider seeing a funny video or something else to enjoy humor and laughter each day. Additionally, I play the piano briefly each day.

  1. Yield to Natural Laws

Natural laws? Here’s one. Sleep well and you’ll think more clearly.

Here are other natural laws:

  • If you’re miserable, you create misery in others.
  • Take care of yourself because no one else can do this properly.
  • Make decisions based on your heart and NOT on others’ approval.
  • Your body needs to move. It was designed to move. Be sure to exercise.

“Why are these natural laws?” my friend, Marina, asked.

“Because they are connected to natural consequences. You do certain things and you get certain results. You fail to do daily self-nurturing actions, and you’ll get hurt,” I replied.

I’ll share two more ideas related to natural laws.

“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Forgiveness is releasing yourself from a cycle of blame and suffering.” – Dr. Fred Luskin

Holding a grudge often hurts the health of the grudge-holder. The topic of forgiveness is way too big for this article. I mention it here as a reminder to all of us to seek ways to elevate our consciousness, so we can live with freedom and strength.

In summary, remember:

H – have something significant to do
A – adapt to uncertainty
P – protect your strength
P – perform what nurtures your being
Y – yield to natural laws

Warmly,
Tom

How You Can Be Fearless and Create Real Success

ShapeFuture6Red3-9-18

Get your copy of this book, Shape the Future, Lead Like a Pro

“Can somebody really be fearless?’” my client, Stephanie, asked.

“I’ve helped so many people escape the prison of fear — including my clients, MBA students and the actors I’ve directed in feature films. It’s really about developing a healthy relationship with fear,” I replied.

Top actor Kenneth Branagh said, “I used to call it fear [stage fright], but now I call it excitement because it is more useful.”

Over the years, I’ve worked as a stuntman, clinging to the hood of a cherry-red classic Chevy Truck racing at 60 miles an hour—only holding on by my fingertips. As an introvert, I’ve stepped in front of an audience of 703 people as I gave a speech at the National Broadcasters Association Conference in Las Vegas.

I’ve learned to stop fear from running the show.

Here’s an Excerpt from my book: Shape the Future, Lead Like a Pro: 3 Skills Every Great Leader Needs to Succeed [click here to look inside the book].

When you’re in action, you’re focused, and fear is a quiet voice in the background.

While I do meditate (briefly) each day, I note that my clients and I just need to get fear to quiet down—and we can move forward effectively.

(Sure, a monk, with meditating six hours a day, may eliminate most fear. Still, I’m interested in working with you in the here and now!)

Unchecked, fear can paralyze people. Fear can suck the air out of the room.

Instead, we focus on generating empowering energy.

This relates to one of my favorite quotes:

“Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear.” – Meg Cabot.

My own wife elaborated on this idea. She said, “Tom, if you were in trouble, and I was scared to go over there—I’d still go over there because you’re more important.”

I immediately gave her a kiss and hug.

How Can You Manifest Your Courage?

Focus on what is meaningful to you—something that is more important to you than fear.

Now it’s your turn. Write down your answers to these questions: “What’s most important to me? What means more to me than something that scares me?

Let’s Look at the Connection Between Meaning and Happiness

Think about it. Where can you derive empowering energy? It comes from what you find meaningful. (If you do something meaningful, you have a source of happiness and good feelings.)

** End of Excerpt **.

Here’s how you live in a “Be Fearless” way:

1) Quiet down fear.

Through rehearsal and coaching, you condition your mind and body to perform in effective ways. Your mind gets to the point of “I’ve got this” and “I know what to do.”

For example, as an introvert, I used to feel fear and nervousness in  meeting new people at a conference. Now, I have a strategy: To listen a lot—which calls for asking good questions. At a conference of heart-centered business owners, I’ll open a conversation with: “So, how do you help people?” That opens the door for the other person to enjoy telling me what he or she does.

2) You live more moments free of fear.

I’ve learned that getting through the first two minutes of a speech opens the door for me to feel less fear. How? I’ve learned to turn my attention away from “how am I doing?” (a fearful place) to “How are YOU doing?” – as I focus on the audience.

In focusing on the audience, I am not in the fearful place. I am in the place of serving the audience.

We return to:

When you’re in action, you’re focused, and fear is a quiet voice in the background.

If you do not let fear stop you, you’re actually fearless.

Remember: Rehearse and get coaching—and shift your focus to serving your listeners—and you’ll live more moments free of fear**.

Warmly,
Tom
