Whether you like it or not, there is no way that you are going to be successful in any endeavor – business or otherwise – unless you provide a desired service.
From a business standpoint, you obviously need to offer a product or a service that people are willing to pay for.
From a relationship standpoint, you need to offer the service of bringing something into the lives of others that they enjoy having, and that they want to keep there.
Even from a personal standpoint, happy people are happy in part because they offer services to themselves, such as exercise, healthy living, meditation, spiritual growth, etc.
So, if you are experiencing barriers to personal growth, discovering what service you aren’t offering enough of would be a great place to start in order to get the ball rolling in the right direction.
If you are a business owner, but your business growth and your motivation to succeed have hit a plateau, maybe it’s time for you to start offering new products or services that both you and your customers can get excited about. There is always a way to make something better or different than its predecessor.
If your quest for fulfilling personal relationships is not going anywhere, perhaps it is time that you started asking yourself hard questions about what service you can offer to friends or potential mates. If your answer is “I’m just me, and that’s what I have to offer,” then I have another question for you: How’s that working out for you?
If your desire for personal growth is, well, personal, then ask yourself what it is that you could be offering yourself that you presently aren’t. Do you need more educational opportunities? Do you need to experience the world more? Do you need more (or less) responsibility in your life? How can you serve yourself so that you are happier?
As is often the case here at Today is that Day, this post was not just some random thought that came into my head, but rather the result of some hard thinking and some equally hard reminders from the likes of James Arthur Ray, Steve Pavlina, and fellow Positive Blog Network member Laura Young.
I have come to realize recently that despite my extreme pride in the writing that I provide for my audience, and the continued work that I am doing on the community interface (it WILL be done eventually, I promise!), that I have broken a cardinal rule of the Law of Attraction by focusing far too much on the details of how I am going to make everything happen.
As it says in my Statement of Success, my goal is to provide service to others, and although I am 100% confident in the useful and empowering content of this blog, I would be remiss in my duties as a Service Provider if I didn’t put the plane on autopilot once in awhile and go back in the cabin to spend some time with the passengers!
So, that being said, I am officially opening up the floor for discussion about what you would like to see from Today is that Day in the future.
- Is there content that you would like to see on this site that you either aren’t seeing, or aren’t seeing enough of?
- Would you be interested in new product or service offerings centered around personal growth such as guides, coaching, e-classes, teleseminars, etc?
- Is this blog or the blogosphere in general not providing you with something that would help you more than just reading the posts and responding to comments?
In short, what do you want?
I only ask because I am advising you to provide service in order to break down your barriers to personal growth, and I believe in practicing what I preach.
What kind of service provider would I be if I didn’t??
