Everything you want is on the other side of fear.

Everything you want is on the other side of fear-Jack Canfield- quote of the day-designed by fivenson studios graphic design and web design studios in michigan

Isn’t it crazy how  many of us are afraid to step outside of our comfort zones – even if it holds us back from achieving everything we dream of?

What if you could step over to the other side of fear, what would you do? 

Fear could ultimately keep you “stuck” for a lifetime, preventing you from reaching your hopes and goals in all areas including career, relationships, even travel.  It is really amazing the hold that fear can have over your life – but you CAN find your courageous self and break through to the other side!

What’s on the other side of fear, really?

Growth, success, happiness, self-confidence, empowerment, mo’ money, mo’ opportunities, mo’, mo’, mo’ – and most of all, freedom! So then what causes us to be so fearful, to be afraid to take that next step?  Much of it is mindset and the control our minds have over what we do or do not do in life.  Remember, you control your mind, not the other way around.

Another school of thought says that we are simply afraid of failure AND/OR afraid of success. What’s your take on this?

Either way, let’s admit it – it’s much easier to stay in our comfort zones with things that are familiar, even if life is a total suckfest.  Sometimes boring or mundane is comfortable, but does it take you anywhere?  Think about your knowledge, expertise, the experience you have in life.  Maybe you work at a dead-end job and deep down inside you know you’re much better, that you could DO better for yourself, but it’s just easier to stay in your dead-end job.  Too much effort, too much of a risk; there are countless excuses!

The Crossover…

So, how can you cross over to the other side of fear, a place where you will find your courage, confidence and ultimately your dreams?

  • Remember that fear can be overcome, and that it is not permanent.  It is simply a state of mind.
  • Rather than trying to eliminate fear altogether, we must learn how to live with it and put it in its place. Smack it down and let it know who’s boss! It’s okay to be afraid every now and then; just don’t let it stop you in your efforts to accomplish your aspirations.
  • With that said, don’t expect fear to completely disappear, but expect and KNOW that you can manage it.  Try new things, take that step that scares the holy crap out of you – every time you do, it gets easier!
  • Understand that you must take calculated risks.  You can’t sit idly by on the sidelines and expect your fears to go away. Whether you take small or big steps, defy your fears and keep stepping forward.  FYI: A calculated risk is one that is focused, well thought out and which you understand completely.  Understanding risks can also help to overcome fear.
  • Turn that fear around to work FOR you.  Here’s what I mean: instead of stress, anxiety or self-doubt being signals that you should not take that next step, let these signals indicate that you SHOULD take that step! The “fear factor” will then be behind you.

Here’s one of the best statements to describe how to put your fear in perspective.  Know this: Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!

Think of all that you are missing out on in life because of fear.  Perhaps you’re passionate about traveling, but you’re scared out of your wits to go alone.  Or, you would love to start an online cooking show but scared to try it. Or, maybe you’d make a great business owner but fear of failure holds you back.  Furthermore, fear doesn’t just apply to the “big” things in life. It applies to your everyday life as well. For instance, you’ve had your eye on someone, but fear hasn’t allowed you to approach him/her yet. Hey, you could be passing up your life partner!

Identify those fears that are preventing you from experiencing the ultimate success and enjoyment in life, and know that you CAN find your courage to step over to the other side of fear!

What are you waiting for?  What’s holding you back at this very moment?

Quote of The Day “The Greatest Pleasure In Life Is Doing What Others Say You Cannot Do”

The Greatest Pleasure In Life Is Doing What People Say You Cannot Do!

 

In your day to day life, how often do you see people being critical or diminishing others with phrases such as “That will never work,” “You can’t do that,” “Why bother trying?” “It’s too difficult,” “There’s no use in trying.”

How often do statements such as these stop you in your tracks?

Don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can do and cannot do because some people who can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it and try to bring you down too. Simply put, Prove them wrong. Blow their mind and surprise the **** out of them because at the end life is all about proving people wrong. Proving people wrong is by far the best pleasure in life. Don’t ever let other people’s opinion define you. Why let other people’s negative opinions be a roadblock to your success? There is not a better pleasure in life than proving people wrong.

“Near Me” Searches Make Sure Customers Can Find You

Make Sure Customers Can Find You Near Me  Searches-designed by fivenson studios michigans graphic design and web design studios

Near Me Searches

You may never have heard of a “near me” search, but chances are you use them all the time to find a product or service nearby. According to GeoMarketing, searches on mobile devices containing the phrase “near me” have shot up 146% year-over-year. Our increasingly mobile, on-demand economy means that customers can now instantly find whatever they need, wherever they happen to be. How can your small businesses take advantage of this trend?

When someone in your neighborhood looks for a business or service like yours, you want to be sure that your small business:

Is included. You know what they say about the lottery: “You can’t win if you don’t play.” This is the same with local search. Make sure your business is listed on Google Places, Yelp, Bing and other top business directories so that when search engines crawl the web, they find and include your business in search results.

Is listed correctly. Many business owners add their business listings to directories and then forget about them. But if you move, open a new location, expand your hours or make other changes over time, customers might not be able to find you even if your business is the top search result. Make sure all your listing info is updated so search engines can find your up-to-date location and contact information.

Is a top result. As you know from personal experience, customers tend to click on one of the first few results returned in a web search. The above tips will help you rise in the ranks. You can further help your search ranking by having a mobile-friendly version of your website. If your site is still not mobile friendly please contact us and we can help you out.

You’ll also want to add a few local keywords to your website and your business listing—think of words customers using “near me” searches are likely to use, such as the name of your neighborhood or city, and your industry. For example, you might write: “Fivenson Studios is Ann Arbor's number one graphic design and web design studios. Serving, Ypsilanti, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Bloomfield and the entire state of Michigan.”

Quote of The Day

Quote of The Day

quote of the day If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs-designed by fivenson studios graphic design and web design studios in michigan

"If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs."

It is so true. The irony is, 95% of people I know are doing nothing to build their dreams, not even to find out what their dream is! So many people are working so hard getting a job, getting next month’s pay check, when they have a job they worry about what their bosses and colleagues think and when they are getting a promotion or a 5% raise.

If you are in that situation, don’t forget you have dreams yourself and that ultimately they need to be taken care of. Don’t let ten years of 60 hour weeks pass until you realise you made everybody else rich and happy but yourself.

How Do You DO IT?

How do you do it though? I remember being a student myself, and only ever thinking what profession I was going to choose and which big company would hire me. This is what everybody (unless they’re lucky enough to be surrounded by entrepreneurs in their family or among peers) is told to do – to find a job, to get a salary to cover rent and food and holidays, with a few hundred bucks left for savings at the end of the month, if you’re lucky. If you have no financial buffer and that next rent payment looming, of course you will stop thinking and just look for a job in a frenzy, and you will be so happy when you find your first job. If you are a student at university, I say you are one of the luckiest people on this planet because you have a couple of years to work on your dreams while using the cover of being a student to be immune to questions about why you don’t have a job.

If you’re studying, don’t forget that your number one job is not taking exams and fulfilling the curriculum, your number one job is to take care of yourself, your passions, your talents and your dreams. Excel at exams only to the extent that they serve your purpose, not as a goal in themselves.

If you’re working already, also start shifting your energy to all the activities that are in line with your dreams – make sure you learn a lot and build relationships that could be useful to you in the future. Ironically, this could actually enhance your job performance, because you will shift from an employee mentality to the kind of big picture mindset that (hopefully) the senior management in your company has, and you will likely identify opportunities for efficiency gains or growth.

Make sure you stop and think. Are you currently focusing all your energy on building someone else’s dream? What are you doing for yourself? What have you done for yourself? For your family? Your friends? Who is benefiting from all your hard work? When are you going to take care of your dreams?

The Secret of Getting Ahead Is Getting Started

Quote of the day-The secret of getting ahead is getting started. Designed by fivenson studios michigan graphic design and web design studios

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small, manageable tasks, and then starting on that first one.

No matter what methodology you follow or what tips you find inspiring, getting started is better than all of them.

Most people have great ideas and big plans, but never take the first steps to get them started. Remember, an object in motion stays in motion, so getting started on a task gets the momentum going and will help you get more done.

Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do – John C. Maxwell

Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do – John C. Maxwell designed by fivenson studios graphic design and web design studios-quote of the day

Being an entrepreneur is hard! All of us who have done it or in the process of doing it knows it’s hard work. If you are thinking about starting your own business please know that this is no walk in the park. Even though we  live in a time where entrepreneurship is  romanticized and all we see are the glitz and the glamour realize that everyone one of those people who you see on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat  TV or magazines realize they all had a dream that they worked endless hours to accomplish.

Most people tend to give up on their dreams. Many will throw away their talents and live their “lives” on the weekend, dreading everyday in between.  I decided it wasn’t anyway to live and so have countless others. But, those first few years of pursuing your dreams as an entrepreneur are brutal.

If you are able to stomach the uncomforts of an entrepreneur please know these are just a few of the thing you might face along the way: Not knowing where your next meal will come from. Also keep in mind some months you might not be able to afford your rent. You may not be able to pay your phone bill and other basic means of living. But, if you give up, failure is 100% inevitable and you can kiss your dreams goodbye. If you stick with it for as long as it takes, success can be 100% guaranteed.

Being an entrepreneur will be hard. If you are looking to start a business, don’t think it will be easy. Being an entrepreneur It isn’t for everybody, but it is worth it if you don’t quit.

What Makes Design the Key Ally of Every Startup

What Makes Design the Key Ally of Every Startup-designed by fivenson studios graphic design and web design studios in michigan

Being surrounded by thousands of similar businesses striving for recognition demands a creative approach. When we say creative, we mean coming up with business strategies that will outperform every other startup around you. In the modern business world, you can make a huge difference only if you accept new technological solutions and use them in a subtle way to help your business grow. This is why the visual identity and design features can be resourceful allies in your ascent to the top.

What Makes Design the Key Ally of Every Startup fivenson studios

Design as integral part of business plan

What startup owners often fail to recognize as an important thing is to include design into their initial business plan. When a new entrepreneur determines their business goals, they should make at least a rough estimate of design-related expenses. It includes a website, visual branding and funds for digital marketing campaigns. Not being ready for the challenges waiting behind the digital corner will bury every business effort.

Illustrations and infographics

Although today the visual aspect of the Internet seems to be the dominant feature, it is only partly true. The number of photos published on the Internet every day is enormous – about 1.8 billion photos daily [source] – but only rare sites can rely solely on photos. On the other hand, launching text-only websites would be a futile effort, too. This is the reason why infographics and illustrations are one of the hottest and most useful trends on the Internet. Creative teams made of experienced and dexterous web designers and copywriters can give every website a vital combination of ingenious textual and graphic content. Here you can have a look at an informative trend-predicting analysis for 2016 in the form of an infographic, brought by Entrepreneur.

Enhanced user experience

User experience, also known as UI, is definitely the buzzword – or rather the buzz phrase – of the 2010s. Due to the constant increase in the number of websites and Internet users, the online battle for recognition and usability is becoming harsher with every new website. Since the web is probably the most liberal and fairest market in the world, how successful and popular a startup will be is determined by their customers' experience. If a startup owner wants their website to contribute to their progress, they need to test every single detail on the site before launching it. To ensure that the website is suitable for its target audience, it is necessary to conduct proper A/B testing beforehand.

Joining modern trends

Applying new design trends and strategies to business operations can reduce the time needed to reach success. If you look around, it is clear that smartphones and tablets represent the next frontier of digital development. The functionality and options they offer today were hard to imagine only ten years ago. Because of that, startup owners need to ensure that their websites are easily accessed from gadgets, too. The easiest and most affordable way to pull it off is to build an app. Such a tool should contain all the basic information about the business. Moreover, its users should be able to make payments and give feedback through that app.

What Makes Design the Key Ally of Every Startup fivenson studios graphic design and web design

From slideshows to animation

In addition to infographics and applications, modern web design offers numerous business possibilities in the form of slideshows and animations, as well. As a direct result of the popularity of smartphones, web designers use slideshows a lot to make websites even more user-friendly. Also, modern animation tools enable designers to present the content of a website in a simple way, in the shortest time possible.

All these design features give startup owners a better chance to attract their customers in a creative way. In the online context you have only little time to tell your customers what you do and how they could benefit from it. It is much easier to entice them if you use practical web design solutions.
