Steps to Turn Off the Nagging Self-Doubt in Your Head

Very good article on creating “good habits” with your thought patterns!

Think of the last time you told yourself something critical or negative. Then think of the last compliment you gave yourself.

Which is easier to remember?

Many of us—whether due to genetics, brain chemistry, our experiences or coping skills—tell ourselves way too many negative thoughts. We ruminate, thinking the same negative, unproductive thoughts over and over.

The SECRET to Leveraging the Power of LinkedIn

Only 5% of executives I speak with on a weekly basis share with me that they are “happy” with their LinkedIn presence and that they regularly attract ideal job opportunities through LinkedIn.

The other 95% share with me that although they may have a profile, they don’t do much with it—and frankly, that’s because they are not sure what to do with it.

A question for you: What are three things you WISH LinkedIn could do for you? Please stop reading for a minute and define one to three things you wish LinkedIn could do for you.

I’ll wait here …

Are they:

  • Bring you more business?
  • Draw ideal job opportunities to you?
  • Establish the perception of thought leadership?
  • Scout for talent for your company?

Once you define what is important to you—you can then determine how to use LinkedIn to provide you with optimum market leverage.

If you want to establish thought leadership, look into WHAT you want to say to your audience—and use LinkedIn’s activity broadcasts to do it; or post using LinkedIn’s blog feature (like I do!).

If you want to scout for talent, you might want to upgrade to a Premium account and concentrate on expanding your network. You could also explore LinkedIn’s Recruiter App for your company’s needs.

If you want to energize your network, you might want to first write out all of the reasons WHY that is important to you—and then develop a simple system to spend 15 minutes per week on LinkedIn to actively increase your connections. Can you define the industry, titles, geographic locations, and so on, that you want to expand? This will help!

If you want to expand your business, you may look into LinkedIn advertising (I do) to reach out to your ideal audience.

And whether you are a passive or active job seeker, think about WHO you want to be seen by. Did you know that if you are not in your target market’s 1st-, 2nd-, or 3rd-degree connections, they can’t “find” you? It’s true.

If you want to learn how to expand your network and get real, actionable results, check out the online program I’ve developed (one of my most popular courses) that teaches executives how to attract career opportunities through LinkedIn. It works! Learn more about it here.

8 Ways to Help OTHERS Find a Job

help-others-find-a-jobDo you know someone who is looking for a new job? I bet you wish you could help them, but maybe you think you can’t because you don’t know of any open positions that would fit them? Well, there are lots of ways to help job seekers, even if you can’t offer them their dream job.

Here are eight tips you can use right now to help your friends and associates that may be in a job search:

Tip #1: Offer to give their resume to a key decision maker in your company.
As long as you’re comfortable with it, why not pass along their resume? You never know when a position might come up or even be created to meet a need!

Tip #2: Invite them to join your network on LinkedIn.
The bigger a job seeker’s LinkedIn network, the better chance they’ll have of finding and connecting with others! The tipping point on LinkedIn is about 65 connections, so it doesn’t take much to quickly create a powerful network!

Tip#3: Endorse them on LinkedIn, give them a Recommendation or offer to be a reference.
You don’t have to have been their boss to recommend or endorse them. So, if you can, why not brag a little on the strengths and skills you know they have?

Tip#4: Hear them out.
Let them share what they are looking for with you in terms of ideal industries and positions. Do you know ANYONE in their industry of choice that they could network with? You don’t have to know if they are hiring or not – every connection counts and could potentially lead to something else!

Tip #5: Invite them out.
Do you attend chamber events, church functions, fundraisers or association meetings? Why not invite them along? Job seekers benefit from the opportunity to make new contacts and connections, PLUS it’s good for them to get out of the house and stay involved!

Tip #6: Tell them about my free ezine and blog articles.
They can sign up here.

Tip #7: Give them additional tools.
One of my affordable audios, books or all-in-one system might be just the tool they need to get unstuck and into the next phase of their job search. Have them visit my Success Store.

Tip #8: Be positive.
Job seekers need positive support and to keep focused on opportunities rather than bad economic conditions and negative news. This is one of the most powerful ways you can support them -with your positive attitude!

My clients are finding and landing jobs every day. The jobs ARE out there and so is help and support. Be sure to remind them of this.

Do you have additional ways to support and assist job seeking friends and associates? Please share your helpful ideas here!
