If our minds and attitudes play pivotal roles in the success of our lives and businesses, how can we ignore our attitudes toward social media?
Many of the people I talk to who have difficulty making social media do what they need it to do simply need to switch up the way they think about social media and their online activity.
"I don't have time"
"I've done everything I can and still no engagement"
"It's a waste of time and resources"
"I don't have the things I need to properly invest in it"
"I can't make it work"
"I don't understand it"
Skill and knowledge play big parts in social media success, but so does the enjoyment of it all.
I challenge you to repeat these 40 affirmations on a regular basis in order to fully grasp how easy it is to love working with social media for your business.
