TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 900 – Compete with Yourself and You Will Always Win!

Monday Topic: Credibility —

Quote: “The greatest achievement is to outperform yourself.” – Denis Waitley

First… thank you!  It’s episode 900… wow!  I’m so grateful you’re here with me on this journey !

On to the blog….

It’s very tempting to compete with other people. And you might ask yourself, “what the heck who else would I compete with?”

Well… it’s important to compete with those that you are equal to in skill. I know that might sound strange because it’s always the goal to exceed your best.

HA!

And that’s the key — YOUR personal best.

One great example of this is the story of what my cousin told me about a student in her yoga class. This gal had felt defeated when she couldn’t touch her toes with her legs straight out in front of her while seated.

I mean the woman next to her, who had only been to class three times could touch her toes with ease. She felt, that with all the practice she was doing she was getting no where and she asked my cousin what she was doing wrong.

My cousin answered, “nothing… have you looked at her body, she’s got short legs, you’ve got long legs”

And that’s how simple it is to get lost in competition.

It’s important to compete so you can improve your skill for the benefit of your tribe. But never get lost in the “all about me winning” trap

It’s Monday and I take the time to talk about credibility and positioning yourself as a Subject Matter Expert… yes, this is super important. Awards are the ideal way to have social proof for your tribe.

That endorsement from a third party as “best in class” for your business is HUGE. However, there is a balance. And that balance is not to get lost in the completion of comparison.

You are successful for emphasizing your strengths and not competing with a business in your area of weakness. Focus on your strengths and improve your abilities, every day and you will win!

Friday: Big Money Small Change

Quote: “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein

 

Surprise! I got an email.

Happens every day… well, happens a lot every day.

So why did this one stand out in my in-box?

Well… it’s not everyday that you receive an email from a company that says they made a mistake.  That tag line caught my attention!

Now, I didn’t know they made a mistake.  Some might argue that sending a mass email to people that didn’t know you had a problem only draws attention to the problem.

BUT… it’s something that builds credibility.  The company not only takes ownership of the problem, but they build trust in thinking about how their customers feel.

That’s a big deal.

So… sometimes saving the sale OR admitting you had an issue will build a long term relationship and that will bring in sales in the future.

Thursday: Infinity Customer

Quote “Customers may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel”

 

Have you ever had an amazing customer experience?  Then the follow up question is what made it so amazing…

I’m guessing there may have been words spoken, but it was the feeling you received that made it super special.

It starts with a kind word… now I don’t mean “wow that dress looks amazing…” the wow experience is about genuine care.   I’m kind of a creature of habit.  I honestly could eat the same thing for lunch every day.

My favorite lunch used to be a plain grilled chicken sandwich.  Now it’s hot ham and cheese… but back in the day chicken was #1.

This was a long time ago, but my first job out of college was actually working for the college.  I was an admissions counselor and we were a crazy group.  We traveled from high school to high school to encourage application to our college.  Really… we were sales people.

Anyway, back on topic.

When on campus, it was hard to plan for lunch.  We were super busy in the fall with prospective students just dropping by so grabbing lunch was a “OMG… NOW” type of event.

One day, I went across the road to the normal restaurant and as usual there was a huge line of about 20 people.  The food was cooked fresh and took at least 10 minutes.

But I was really hungry and it was insane standing in line.  (this was before smart phones.  I had a cell phone but we’re talking a peacock blue nokia – it was high tech for it’s day)

So there was nothing to do but wait and wait and wait… well the line took at good 12 minutes… and I almost left.

BUT the people that operated the restaurant were good people.  A family that worked freekin hard.  It was nice to chat.

Anyway, I got to the front… and the “dad” said – “come here” – by passed the entire group… he made my meal as soon as I got in line, all I had to do was check out.

BOOM!!!

That’s how you make a customer feel special.

This is how you build loyalty.

This is how you build your tribe.  Show genuine care.

25+ years later and thinking of this memory it still makes me feel amazing, not only did he know what I would order, but he made it as a surprise.

Get out there an surprise your customers today…. if not all of them, just one!

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Quote: “We didn’t realize we were making memories we just knew we were having fun.” Winnie the Pooh

 

As you clean the restroom, balance the register, post your new sale on Facebook… you might think “fun?” Really?

When you started your business it was fun and exciting…

Now it’s more “ho hum” like Eeyore.

Today… find the joy!

Do you love how I picked a Winnie the Pooh quote and brought Eeyore into a post on motivation.  Hummmm maybe I’m writing from which I know.

My post started to feel stale so I added a little whimsy… My post is now not just a “motivate yourself” piece of inspiration, it’s a “lead by example you can really do this” piece of inspiration.

Go for it.  Find the Joy.

Tuesday: Content and Consistency

Quote: “The key to victory is not just to be good, but to be consistently good.”

 

Have you ever stood at the free throw line, bounced the ball, and shot… and made it?

DANG!

Best feeling ever… right?

So why don’t you play professional basketball?  I mean you made a free throw…

It’s because you won’t put in the work to make consistent free throws!

Everyone can do something good… once… but the key to success is the to be good consistently!  This is what takes practice and discipline.

When you create your core product or service at your business you spent a great deal of time perfecting it… and you still do this.  The reason you are successful is because you continue to be consistent with your results.

The same is true for your Infinity Marketing Machine… you need to be consistent with your content.  It’s important to share information with your tribe regularly.  Otherwise they will miss you and they’ll leave.

As you plan your day, take five minutes to develp your consistency plan.  Will you post once a week, three times a week… and what time of day… be very specific.  Being consistent once a week is more valuable than posting four times a week this week, none next week, and twice in one day the following week.

You need to be consistent!
