Guest Post: Learning to Trust Myself – Kris de Leon

We were very fortunate to meet Kris de Leon at Mike Klingler’s Marketing Funnel Mastery event in Las Vegas. So who, may you ask, is Kris de Leon? The best way to describe Kris is by the amazing qualities he exudes when you meet him. Kris is energetic, passionate, positive (always smiling), and genuinely interested in what others have to say. He is fun to be around.

When Kris wrote his blog post on Learning to Trust Myself, we were amazed. It touched us, resonated with us, and gave us a feeling that he really understood us as people.

We invite you to read his post below, share it with others and comment on how it touched you.

Learning to Trust Myself – by Kris de Leon

“Success leaves clues”? How many times have I heard, “If you’re not doing what we’re saying, then you’re not motivated or not really committed to your success.” So I did just that – followed exactly their programs and took action on everything they said. So why didn’t I make a break through? I felt so miserable at the time, and really beat myself up, thinking something was wrong with me. How many times have you felt that way? I’m sure you can relate.

Fast forward to today – I realized why it didn’t work. I was listening to everyone else, instead of listening to myself. How can I be authentic, when I’m trying to be like someone else? Just because they are gurus, just because they are multi-millionaires and successful – I may want the same things, but does that mean I have to follow them? How can I be authentic, when I’m trying to be just like them – a copy cat? Yes, their strategies did make them successful, but were they the right strategies for me? My inner voice was nudging me so many times go a different direction, but I didn’t listen – I followed everyone else, instead of trusting myself.

I may not be the millionaire with the fancy car and private jets. I may not even be a 6 figure earner (just yet). What I can honestly say is – I love being me! I love where I’m at! I don’t care whether or not my desires manifest, because I’m already happy and have found that inner peace! That’s what’s important to me. True happiness does come from within. Heck, the sky could be falling down right now, but I can still be at peace and find the inner calmness. And here’s the paradox – I’ve been manifesting more amazing things than before (sometimes instantaneously) and taking action is such a joy!

Don’t get me wrong – I still listen to experts and successful people, but I only take what resonates with me and integrate that with the advice from my inner voice. This is where true empowerment lies!
______________

Kris speaks of authenticity and being true to oneself. He speaks with a voice of someone who has discovered that for himself and who is so excited to share it with the world. We resonate with what he has written, and feel that without being true to ourselves the road to “success” may happen on some level, but it will be without true fulfillment and happiness.

We welcome your feelings on being authentic and true to yourself… and if you feel this relates to your business success. Please leave your comments below. Thank you so much!

Your Blog – Not Just a Place to Write!

We’re fairly certain that most people think of blogging as just writing, writing and writing some more. Well think again! There are so many different content formats that can be added to a blog.

Let’s take a look at a few of them…

1. Video:

There are more than one way to use video on a blog, and more than one type or style of video. There is the standard Talking Head variety… just film yourself talking about a subject of choice and post it in your blog. Pretty simple.

Then there’s the next step up… a “YouTube” type of video. One with a little more in it than just you. This may get the visitors to your blog to stay a while longer than they normally would have.

There is also another format that looks like video, really engages your visitor and allows them to abs0rb the information from your post in a user-controlled, searchable presentation.

2. Pictures:

OK… we’ve talked about video… the “moving pictures”, the presentations that have “action”. But still pictures are also an awesome addition to a blog post. A picture is worth a thousand words, they stay in your readers’ minds longer and have more impact than just words.

3. Audio:

There are programs that allow you to record audio and then place it in your blog. This is another good way to get the visitors to your blog to hang out a bit longer. Instead of having to take the time to read text, they can listen to it. Again, involving them in a different way.

So… we’re wondering…

Have you added other media to your blog than just written text?

As well… let us know what other types of media you have used, which one is your favorite, and which one you still have challenges with in the comments section below.

Basically, the main point here is this… mix it up! Have fun! Use other formats of information and content delivery in your blog. There’s a great chance your visitors will spend more time there and make return visits more often.
