Chris Brogan wrote an interesting blog post a couple of weeks entitled “My 3 Words for 2011″ where he would come up with these 3 words that would act as a lighthouse for his actions and efforts.
I wanted to chime in and come up with my own “3 Words” that can be a lighthouse for what I do in 2011. So my 3 Words For 2011 are:
Heroes. Stories. Experiences.
Heroes – Since I’ve been online and started helping others with becoming successful online has stemmed from one thing, wanting to be a leader (Hero) myself and then go show other people how to become the Hero in their niches. That’s the whole purpose of this blog, is to help people that want to be great, not only become the Hero of a niche, but Heroes to their families, friends, and community.
I want to be my wife’s Hero. I want to be my 2 little daughters Hero when they grow up. I want to be my friends’ Hero.
I’m going to be investing a lot into my own self becoming a Hero in 3 areas:
1. Mind: A Hero has to have the right mindset and always be into Personal Development and Growth
2. Body: I gotta get healthy physically to become a Hero.
3. Soul: God is who makes me great and this year I will pray more, fast more, study more, and grow the spirit side of my life.
I want to help you be the Hero so bad, but I need to continue practicing what I preach.
Stories – In 2008, when I started Successfool.com, I created it because I took a look at what Oprah was doing for the last 2 + decades and all that she’s done is extracted inspiring, motivating, unique, and authentic stories from ordinary people just like you and me.
So the purpose of that blog was to do interviews and give you the “goods” from friends of mine that were building highly successful businesses using the web. It’s the reason we love a great movie, there’s a compelling story that sometimes we can identify with.
I’ve been blessed to have connected with some extremely successful people that I can call friends now, I want to introduce their stories to you. The tips and tricks are cool, but when you learn someone’s story, that can be the thing that inspires you and moves you into action.
In 2011, I will be doing a lot of interviews for you to learn from.
Maybe I’ll be sharing your story soon in an interview one day?
Experiences – This is the core of what Cj Alvarado will be talking about a lot this year together. Tools and technologies are great, but to really help companies become Heroes in their communities, they need to provide their customers and audience an experience that they will remember, and go tell their friends and family about. It’s that experience that not only makes you feel good inside, but can also inspire you to want to change the world.
Customer Experiences is the new Black.
Too many people are talking about “social media this, social media that…” Social Media is so 2008. Customer Experiences is the new Black. We have plenty of experience with this working in the church arena and have watched what a good experience can do and a bad experience can do to a community.
I will help my clients create awesome customer experiences and great great experiences for my audience (You).
I hope this helps you understand a little bit about where my head is at with what I’m doing here at successfool.com
