What Makes Things Go Viral @ Transformation Station

Cultivating Ideas through Your Inner Confidence

Listening to a TED presentation this morning really blessed me. The category was “What Makes Things Go Viral”.

What catches your interest as you scroll through your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram post?

This TED presentation tackles that subject. Rather than write an essay on this video, I present it to you to experience first hand. The new term presented is “Cultural Cartography”.

Force or Entice @ Transformation Station

Transforming Your Character through Your Inner Confidence

This is a screen shot of an Instagram post by rise_with_supra. The message inspired me and moved me to ask if I could repost this in my blog.

Just like myself, the author of this post is a network marketer and has learned how to post valuable content to inspire and educate followers in the importance of personal development. Having a homebased business is challenging and if you prepare yourself, you can enjoy many years of building relationships.

Below is the post that inspired me.

rise_with_supra Picture this!! Most of us will come to a conclusion with a statement like work smarter not harder. That may be true and obvious but an in depth review will lead you to learn a concept on how you can influence the buffalo-calf in following you effortlessly.

It’s what I call bait the hook to suit the fish and in summary …. he who understand and can do this has the world with him. He who cannot walks a lonely way in his path.

In the first picture A, both the father and son will simply applying force on the calf but the animal stood firm, stiffened his legs and stubbornly refused to budge and leave the ground.

In the second picture B, the young boy realized that this was not working towards it’s best interest and realized what the buffalo really wanted. The boy simply placed a bunch of leaves along a stick and dangled it in front of the calf and the calf did not retaliate but simply followed the bait.

How then can we apply this technique to influence people in the right manner. The truth of the matter is you need to simply arouse in the other person an eagerness that they want and always work to their best intention with an interest in mind and not what you want. This the key to win their heart and an eager want leads to no amount of discussion or threat could have possibly accomplished. –
Not only that, it’s also one of the secret of success and in the own words of Henry Ford …”It lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own. That’s how powerful is this concept.

Another benefit of this technique is that you can apply to business dealing. When we stumbled upon a brilliant idea, instead of making other think it’s ours, why not let them own it and stir the idea themselves. This will add as an encouragement.

-Double TAP if you agree & TAG 3 friends of yours who need to see this.

This morning my power word is UNITY. It was very easy to bridge the gap between myself and rise_with_supra, even though I do not know his given name. My purpose is to show how easy it is to reach out and show your appreciation for someone else’s post or work. I believe it is important to share great information, so we can all grow together. The majority of people entering into the homebased business arena have no idea the personal fortitude it takes to start and maintain a business. As an entrepreneur, you are a business. There are certain skill sets that you need to incorporate in your everyday habits.

I hope you enjoyed and received the true meaning within this message. If you would like to read more about transforming your habits, please read previously posted articles from “Habits of the Mind – Ten Exercises to Renewing Your Thinking” by Dr. Archibald Hart.

Here is another example of when I reached out to an author and connected with him. This book was required reading for my 2nd Biblical Counseling Semester. It was out of print at the time and I wrote to Dr. Hart to see if he had copies available for sale. He did and I was able to purchase a copy. Not only did I not let “Out of Print” stop me from my assignment, but I received and signed autograph copy from Dr. Hart.

Below are links to the blog articles which corresponded to my video challenge in 2106. I only went as far as Habit #6. It’s time to complete the last 4 habits. 2018 will be my winning season, my season of completion.

Habit #1: Seeing the Good in Others

Habit #2: Give Yourself Permission to Fail

Habit #3 Keep Your Conscience Clear

Habit #4 Don’t Punish Yourself

Habit #5 Value Life’s Little Blessings 

Habit #6 Accentuate the Positive

S.A.V.E. 30 Day Challenge

Advice From One Smart Lady

Are you ready for a challenge? Challenging yourself is the best way to break old unproductive habits, and create new habits which on a daily basis help you move toward achieving the goals you set down for yourself. Remember incorporate the S.T.E.A.M. method of marketing and you will build a targeted following who will eventually buy your products and services.

Here is a 30-Day Challenge called S.A.V.E.R.S., and it is a lifesaving personal development tool. For 30 days, I challenge you to commit yourself to the following:

  1. Find an accountability partner who you can share your daily activities and achievements.
  2. S- Silence
    • Find a quiet place and set time to be still. I do my morning devotions in my office. I have a bay window where I can gaze out and watch the morning come to life as I write out my morning prayers and thoughts.
  3. A-Affirmations
    • Through my morning devotions, I practice affirming who I am and what I am doing and what the Lord is doing in my life to guide me through each decision that I make. I affirm my faith in the path He has defined for me and affirmed. I am committed to staying on that path.
  4. V-Visualization
    • Through my morning devotions, I practice visualization of how I see activities unfolding. Of course, I am in a state of prayer believing and having faith that my vision is guided by the Holy Spirit.
    • Visualizing our visions help stimulate the growth of our mind. The following article, from the HBCU Careers Forum – Having A Vision The Essence of Life and Success, is more detailed in telling why we should have visions.
    • In today’s world,  we are constantly bombarded by the news daily with so many things that really don’t  stimulate the true growth of the mind but instead deter you from having a solid sense of hope and success.  A vision is essential to having a more positive outcome and is vital to success. Learning new things is great for the brain and will create new pathways of thought and focus. When centered and applied properly,  a vision will allow one to gain new insights and abilities to create not only a new way of life but also a new world around them. A vision is a picture or an idea one may have in the mind for self, business or any other future endeavor.  Clarity of that vision helps one to pursue dreams, achieve goals and produce a more successful and prosperous outcome. A vision that is clear will open the mind to endless possibilities and unlimited points of the future.   Having a vision is one of the most important factors in the path of one’s success in life. You feel much more valuable as a person when you set and achieve visions and goals. When visions and goals are set and defined, the value of the person is increased exponentially.The Bible, in Proverbs 29:18, says,” Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” (Read More)
  5. E – Exercise
    • Need I say more. Everywhere you look, there are articles and videos about the importance of
      My first 5K Walk in 2015.

      My first 5K Walk in 2015.

      exercise. Just walking 30 minutes a day is more beneficial than eating and leading a sedentary life.  I joined a local group (Girl Trek – Delaware Sole Sisters) who are unbelievably dedicated to getting their exercise in. They are 15 to 20 years younger, and I do not participate in all of the events. I am looking for Brazenly Bold Third Agers such as myself to be accountability exercise partners.

  6. R – Reading
    • Set a timer and read 15 – 20 minutes every day. “Leaders are Readers.” You are never too old. If you have limited sight, get the audio version of books and listen to them.
  7. S – Scribing
    • “Just Write” and don’t worry about grammar and structure. Write out what is on your mind. What are you hoping for? What disappoints you? How can you get around stumbling blocks and circumstance which would normally stop you in your tracks. Keep a journal which can be used as content for fiction and non-fiction.
    • I kept a journal after my late husband, Donald, passed away from cancer in 2003, I took my journal note, poems and letters I wrote and published them a book titled,  “Joy Comes Through the Mourning.” Writing is the best medicine anyone could have prescribed anyone going through the grieving process. In 2015, I published a book entitled, “Isaiah’s Gift of Hope” by Crystal Cambisaca. Remember grieving does not only mean death. We grieve when we lose people, places, and things.
    • The important thing to remember is to “Just Write.” Your journey can become your biography or content for fiction, and your notes can capture the detailed activity and help you define the outline for your book.

Committing yourself to a 30-Day Challenge is hard work. I am in the final days of my 90-Day Challenge and I can see the transformation of my attitude and my lack of fear of facing actions that would have been very uncomfortable for me to confront. To succeed you must take measurable action. Start your transformation today.
