Critical Thinking Benefits

 

Today’s article is about critical thinking benefits and how it might help you succeed in your business.

A person who is grounded in critical thinking is self-disciplined and is always in pursuit of excellence. Critical thinking uses intellect rather than ego or long-held beliefs to problem-solve and communicate more effectively with others. A critical thinker is usually a success in anything they pursue. See, you can use this to be successful in your business.

 

Critical Thinking Benefits

Critical thinking is closely associated with scientific thinking and reasoning. It means you step back to think about a situation or a belief before making a judgment. You gather all the evidence so that you can fairly and accurately come to a conclusion rather than making a decision based on irrational thoughts and beliefs.

 

Some crucial benefits of critical thinking are:

 

  • Making a decision based on rational rather than emotional thoughts.
  • Helps you make a decision that’s more likely to benefit you because you’ve taken everything into consideration.
  • Helps you to see the many sides of a situation or belief rather than a narrow spectrum.
  • You’ll have more respect for others and their belief systems and decision-making.
  • Separates your opinion from the facts.
  • Develop courage, and empathy and become more fair-minded.
  • Make better decisions to achieve the goals you desire.

 

Those are just a few of the ways that critical thinking can make you a better and better-rounded person. You’re bound to make the decisions that can help you be a happy and successful person in your life’s pursuits. Making clear choices determines the impact that critical thinking will have in your life. You’ll be able to reach the heights you want because you’ll make decisions you’re happy with and that don’t have a negative impact on others.

 

Belittling Others

A critical thinker is usually seen as a great problem solver and one who uses the tools of critical thinking to base his or her decisions. Critical thinkers also tend to be respectful of others and therefore gain admiration from those around them. Good listening skills are also a trait that critical thinkers tend to have. They seek to find answers based on reality and research rather than mindless obedience or acquiescence to another’s wishes or beliefs.

Critical Thinking & Creativity

Critical Thinking & Creativity

 

In today’s article, we will be discussing how critical thinking and creativity go hand in hand. Critical thinking lets you look objectively at a problem, issue, object, or person and take into consideration the entire picture. Creativity enables you to take that entire picture and look at it in a new way. While some may think of critical thinking as more scientific, while creative thinking is more abstract, they’re more alike than they are different.

 

Critical Thinker or Creative Person?

The creative person is likely to be seen as an imaginative and emotional type such as artists, writers, and philosophers. A critical thinker is more likely to be thought of as a scientific genius who may be skeptical and lacking in imagination and creativity. Both types are masters of the thought process.

Critical Thinking

Noun… disciplined thinking that is clear, rational, open-minded, and informed by evidence: The questions are intended to develop your critical thinking.

 

The reasoning process of critical thinking shows imagination to be able to proceed to the next level. Critical thinking is present in creativity by carrying the thought process further than critical thinking logic. And then presenting it in a creative light. Great critical-thinking minds such as Thomas Edison and Benjamin Franklin could never have brought their inventions to light without the streaks of creative thinking that took them beyond the realm of logic.

 

Similar Attributes in Both

Here are some attributes that are similar in both critical and creative thinkers:

  • Interested in exploring new possibilities.
  • Challenge assumptions and standard ways of thinking.
  • Imagining alternatives to a situation or problem.
  • Have multiple perspectives on everything.
  • Use trial and error experimentation methods.
  • Thinks about new ways of doing things.

 

The phases involved in critical and creative thinking are also similar. For example, both types of thinking are triggered by a thought or even that takes the thinking process outside the realm of common thinking. Then, the thoughts are appraised and clarified. This opens the door for ways to explore the thought and how to present it to others. This leads to developing alternative ways to think and then implementing the thinking process through inventions, writing, art, or ideas. Sounds so simple.

Self-confidence and Thinking Ability

Both types of thinking also require a large measure of self-confidence and the ability to think of and present multiple ways to view a situation or problem. To promote both critical and creative thinking, a person should have an inquiring mind that drives them to read. To engage in out-of-the-box thinking, and to try things that are outside what they would usually do to try.

 

 

Critical and creative thinking can complement each other by bringing new ideas and ways of thinking into your life. Have you ever thought of things this way before? If not, you might be missing out on new ways to step up your game in your business.

Membership Conservation Efforts

Membership Conservation Efforts

Membership Conservation Efforts

 

Today’s article is about your Membership Conservation Efforts. This may or may not pertain to your current business model, but the information is worth a read.

You probably email your members monthly to deliver their content if you have a membership website. But if you want your members to stay subscribed, you should be emailing more often. Frequent messages keep your members engaged with your brand and make it less likely that they’ll suddenly cancel their membership with no warning. Ideally, you want to be emailing your subscribers once a week.

 

Types of Emails

 

Week #1: The Delivery Email

This email should contain a link to the new content you have available. Let subscribers know where to log in to download their content and provide their usernames. Then take it a step further and offer them help if they can’t access their content for some reason.

You could say, “If you’re having trouble downloading your content this week, open a ticket with my help desk by clicking here.” This will ensure that you don’t have people unsubscribing simply because they couldn’t get help when needed.

Week #2: The Reminder Email

You want to use this message to remind subscribers about this month’s content. Some subscribers may have missed your original email, or they may not have had a chance to download it on the day of release.

Encourage subscribers to download their content by telling them a little about it. For example, if you’re a wellness coach that provides nutritious recipes for families, you could say, “My kids love the applesauce muffin recipe I included this month. They asked me to put these muffins in their back-to-school lunches.”

 

Week #3: The Teaser Email

Use this email to tease your subscribers about what’s coming up next. The teaser email makes them curious and gives them a reason to stay subscribed. This doesn’t have to be a long email, and you shouldn’t include everything that you’ll be giving them next month because you want to keep a bit of mystery about what they’ll be getting.

You could say, “Just wanted to give you a head up. Next month, I’ll be giving you [item]. I love this because [reason].” It’s a simple message, but it gives you a reason to stay in contact and keeps your brand fresh in your subscribers’ minds.

Week #4: The Expiration Email

This is your chance to remind subscribers that the current month’s content will expire soon. Urge them to download it while there’s still time. You could say, “This is the final call to download your content. I’ll remove this month’s content when I upload next month’s resources. I don’t want you to miss out, so click here to log in and save your content.”

 

Make the Emails Personal

 

Try to be personal in every email you send to your subscribers. Let them know what’s going on in your life or business. You could say, “Happy September! I enjoyed this summer. But the kids are back at school again, so I’m gearing up to set my autumn business goals.”

You want to weave in these details because it strengthens your connection with your subscribers and gives you a chance to tell them about other neat stuff you may have going on.

Keeping your subscribers engaged with your content is one way to go above and beyond with your customer service. Little touches like consistent emails will make your brand memorable to your subscribers.

Using Follow Up Emails and Autoresponders

Using Follow Up Emails and Autoresponders

 

Are you Using Follow-Up Emails and Autoresponders with your clients? If you’re not, you should be. I’ll explain why below.

When it comes to going above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service, don’t forget about using follow-up emails and autoresponders. These two tools are some of the most powerful ones you can use.

 

Welcome Your New Customer

The first email message your customers should receive is a welcome email. In this email, you’ll want to give access to the product or service your customer purchased and tell them how to ask for help if needed. You could say something simple like, “Need help? Hit reply to this message and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.”

 

Follow Up Promptly

You’ll want to send a follow-up email about 48 hours later. Ask if your customer received everything they needed and give them a second link to download the product they bought. If they had to sign up to download their product, remind them to log in with their username and password.

A third email message should be sent 10-20 days after the original purchase. If you sold an information product, ask your customer if they’ve put what they’ve learned from you into practice yet. By Using Follow-Up Emails and Autoresponders will help your customers trust that you have their best interest at heart.

You can even highlight a customer that did and share how they used your product. For example, you might say, “Shannon purchased my course on affiliate marketing and noticed her affiliate earnings climb as soon as she implemented the first two lessons.”

 

 

Give a Status Update

If your customer has purchased a service from you, then you can use this email message to give an update on your project. For example, you might say, “I’ve been working on that e-book for you and I’m halfway through it. I expect to be finished by [date]. In the meantime, are there any questions you have that I can answer?”

Updating your clients about the status of your project may seem like a small thing. But it puts customers’ minds at ease and lets them know you’re still working hard.

 

Use Reminder Emails

If you’re selling a service, set an autoresponder to follow up after three months. Use this email to ask if you can be of any further service. This can jog a client’s memory and remind them to assign a project to you they’d forgotten about.

You can also use this reminder email to ask for a testimonial. You might say something simple like, “I enjoyed collaborating on your project. I’d love it if you’d share your experience working with me in the form of a short testimonial.”

When your customer service goes above and beyond, your customers will love you for it. They’ll enjoy using your products or services so much that they’ll become brand ambassadors that share how awesome your business is with everyone they know.

Developing the Radical Giver Mindset 

Developing the Radical Giver Mindset 

 

Today’s article is about how Developing the Radical Giver Mindset works.

Read the story below and see how it affects you.

 

Deidre’s Story

 

Deidre joined a business group on Facebook where members read a business book each month. Every Monday, the group leader uses Facebook Live to start an interactive discussion about the book.  

Over the past month, Deidre’s group has been reading The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. When the group leader started their usual live stream, she asked if anyone was struggling. 

Deidre quickly shared that she was. “I grew up in a single-parent household. My mom struggled just to make ends meet every month. I like the idea of being a radical giver but I’m worried there’s just not enough goodness in the world to go around.”  

Deidre isn’t alone. Many online business owners struggle to become radical givers despite really wanting to. The problem is often linked to a poverty mindset.

 

 

The Poverty Mindset

Here are three beliefs that keep you stuck in poverty and how to overcome them. After reading them see if any of the three fit you and if not, you’re well on your way to becoming a radical giver.

 

Poverty Mindset #1: There’s Not Enough to Go Around

When you believe that there is a limit to the money or goodness available in the world, you can approach every situation with a belief that you must hoard things. You have to hold tightly to your money, your time, and your gifts.  

But what if you flipped the script? Instead of telling yourself, that there’s not enough to go around, embrace the belief that there’s more than enough to share.  

What you focus on will always expand. That means if you focus on one belief, it will become self-fulfilling. The more you tell yourself there’s enough to go around, the more your life and business will begin to reflect this belief.  

 

 

Poverty Mindset #2: Helping Others Shine Means I Can’t Shine

It’s easy to think that if other people are awesome, you can’t be awesome, too. That’s because most people imagine the world as a small stage where only a few, truly gifted entrepreneurs can show off their talents. 

But in reality, the stage is big enough to support everyone. In fact, your brand or product could be exactly what someone else needs. Instead of viewing other entrepreneurs or brands as your competition, see them as your friends. Going solo is lonely but a journey with friends? That’s so much fun! 

 

Mindfulness

 

Poverty Mindset #3: I Need to Take on Every Client or Project

Sometimes, a poverty mindset can show up as taking on every client or project that comes your way. It often stems from the fear that if you don’t, you might lose out on money or experience. 

But the problem with this belief is that it keeps you from doing your best work. If a project comes along that’s not a terrific fit for you, say no. When you do this, you open up room in your business for projects that truly light you up. Developing the Radical Giver Mindset means that you need to make a change.

Moving past a poverty mindset and becoming a radical giver isn’t something you can do overnight. It often takes a few months of practice and support from a loving community of like-minded business owners. But rest assured that if you stay focused, you can embrace a new mindset. 

 

The secret to becoming a radical giver lies in asking three simple questions. Discover what they are when you download your free workbook!
