There's been a new trend with email marketers where they periodically send out emails using a cute "From:" name.
For instance, this weekend, I got an email from the Easter Bunny, and almost marked it as spam, but noticed that it came from someone I subscribed to his list.
Lily Jensen does this type of thing frequently, and I'm very close to unsubscribing because it's more work to filter out spam than it should be.
Okay, so what does this have to do with you?
I'm talking about the value of consistency.
When you do things the same way every time, people learn they can count on you, and that builds trust and fosters a healthy relationship.
Most business, and email marketing especially, is based on building strong relationships.
And of course, most of our social enjoyment comes from the relationships we have with others.
Now, I have to admit, I haven't always been as consistent as I could be. This lesson is as much for me as it is for anyone.
For a long time, I felt that being too consistent meant that you were boring, and I certainly didn't want to be boring.
I've learned that there are different degrees of consistency.
In other words, it's possible to be consistent, yet at the same time, not be boring.
Look at it this way, if every time you see a particular person, and that person always greets you with a smile, a handshake or hug, and asks about your day with a sincere tone in his/her voice, how would you feel?
You certainly wouldn't be bored with this person, would you?
In fact, you might even start to look forward to the time you get to spend with this person, right?
Because this person makes you feel special.
Okay, so how do you think YOUR relationships would be if you consistently treated the people around you in this way?
How many of them would start to look forward to spending time with you?
Here's an area where karma is easy to see.
The more love you give, the more love you get.
If you want to get more love, give more love.
Those who have invested in the Symbolic Solutions package have access to a couple of guided meditations that make it easy to love.
There's the Divine Love meditation originally from the Harmonic Prayer package, and now the Self-Worth / Love Fest meditation which uses various triggers to activate love in your deepest self.
Of course, you don't NEED these meditations.
You could simply sit back, relax as much as you can, and indulge in daydreams and fantasies that involve love on a deep and powerful level.
Just make sure to allow those daydreams to follow you out into the real world where you can express that love to other humans.
Until next time, be blessed, my friend.
