PART 2: 
HOW TO MULTIPLY YOUR ​PRAISE

​INTRODUCTION

I have a mantra when it comes to anything I create.

​That means EVERY time someone comes into contact with me they need to be able to take a step forward, to grow, to achieve something they haven’t been able to do before.


When you start creating from this place, it makes everything you create valuable. Instead of just getting up a blog post or throwing together some quotes for Instagram, you really think about what your clients need to achieve RESULTS!


Instead of being like everyone else and trying to prove how much you know about something, you create THE MOST VALUABLE content available... results & change.


We are living in a time where we can get the answer to any question almost within seconds. There is so much information out there that, honestly, your clients don’t need more information... they need a SOLUTION to their PROBLEM.


We have been taught that we need to be on every platform, and constantly posting content so that we will be seen as an authority, be picked up by the Facebook and Google algorithms and keep top of mind to our audience. But all of this comes at the expense of RESULTS.


If you want praise, you have to earn it and the only way to get it is by making a difference in someone’s life... not Facebook’s, not Google’s, not to the masses, but to one single individual and then repeat over and over again.


So before you punch out next month’s blog posts, facebook posts, instagram images, pinterest images, emails to your list... look at the platforms that are working and stop the rest for a while.


Focus all of your energy on what’s working and help THOSE people as much as you can.


While praise seems like such an egoic need, it should actually be one of your highest regarded metrics, not to boost your ego but to show you are making a difference in people’s lives.


And then with permission, praise become testimonials, and evidence for future clients that you can help them in an amazing way... that you GET the RESULTS that THEY WANT.

​MAKE IT EASY TO PRAISE YOU

​​While this seems so obvious, most people aren’t going to reach out to a faceless person.


If all you do is blast out content then the communication is a one way street and your audience won’t feel comfortable contacting you to say thank you.


You need to be engaged with your audience. Answer questions on your social media platforms, ask subscribers to reply to an email and answer a question... let them know you are there for them and actually BE there for them.


Your content might inspire a question and when you answer it you have helped someone and in that help, they feel closer to you and more grateful that you took the time to reply to them.


The more approachable you are, the more likely that people are going to contact you and let you know how much you have helped them.


The other option is to set up a system to actually ask for testimonials and referrals.


You don’t need to be weird about it, but if someone has completed a program or worked with you, then just reach out and ask if they have the time, if they wouldn’t mind filling in a quick survey. You can say that you are always trying to improve your customer’s experience and their feedback is valuable to you... the majority of people will do it! This will also give you constant feedback on how you CAN improve and be more of a Mentor of Change!

Over
Sound a bit ‘out there’ for you? Give it a chance and keep reading... I promise you, it will be worth
it!
Do you have real tangible goals set for your business? A vision board? A bucket list?
As I work with high achievers and change-makers who want to make a massive impact, if I
surveyed everyone who reads this, most people would have the $1 million plus a year goal for their
business.
But why? What does this do for YOU? How does this impact YOUR life?
It’s obvious that you would be able to up-level most of your experiences and living conditions but
have you ever thought about the COST of creating this business working the way you do now OR
whether you actually really NEED this much money? Maybe it’s not enough to do the things you
want too? Is this what YOU really want?
Goals without soul and reality based outcomes are like genie wishes... They are so based
alongside fairytales in your mind that there’s no desire to achieve them.
When I work with clients, this is the first place we start... Knowing what the REAL desired outcome
is and then creating a plan to achieve this first.
When we set goals, we chose things that we think will bring us a certain feeling. It’s the FEELING
that we are trying to achieve, not the ‘thing’. That’s why you can really want something and work
so hard to achieve it, but once you have it you’re not satisfied for very long, as the feeling was
fleeting. So now you need something else, a new goal, to bring back that feeling.
This way of setting goals is so back to front. Firstly, you should figure out how you want to feel in
life and then set goals which align with these feelings... I call them ‘magnet soul goals’.
Sometimes the goals your currently aiming for don’t match the feelings you really want which is
why you will sabotage your achievements over and over again and not understand why.
Now you have these, it’s a matter of choosing the ones that will make THE MOST impact in your
life and create a plan to achieve them. When you are choosing them, also think about the journey
of achieving the goal... if the journey doesn’t also align with the feeling, it’s a big red flag that it’s
not the right goal and you will struggle to achieve it.
Seriously, this is magic in the making.

​COLLECT YOUR PRAISE

​​Over time you will get praise in all different areas: social media comments, email, phone, verbal and who knows what else!


Instead of just letting it go, create a folder and save it all into there. Make sure you keep a clear track of where it came from, what it was in relation to and the date so you know how to get in touch if needed and you don’t use it for an irrelevant program.


Screenshots, pdf emails, video and audio are all ways to can collect your praise.


Being a systems junkie, pick a filename and use it so all is clear.

For example: 20170515-ShanPhelps-FB-re cheat sheet.png

DATE-PERSONS NAME-SOURCE-REASON FOR PRAISE


If you get written approval to use something, use the same file name with ‘APPROVAL’ at the end so you can keep them together.


Then when you are having one of those bad days just open up this folder and see how many lives you have touched with your genius!

This was an exercise in one of Frank Kern’s programs. I have used this so much and whilst it’s
super simple, it’s genius at uncovering your most valuable strengths that you should use to grow
your business.
When I did this exercise, I was trying to grow my health coach business, yet all of my answers
were in business and marketing... surely a sign I was trying to create the WRONG BUSINESS FOR
ME???... sadly I kept going but now I understand what this tool really shows, I could never make
this mistake again AND I used it to create my current business.
