Ignite a Movement and Set the World on Fire

Most businesses are like white toast—totally indistinguishable from one brand to the next. Sure, they all have a different logo on the package, worldonfirebut take that away and they all look the same. And they all leave you with the same bland taste in your mouth.

Don’t be white toast. It’s boring and forgettable.

To really make an impact on the world around you, you have to be memorable and you have to inspire people to do business with you and support you.

If you want to make a difference, you have to get people on board with your mission and ignite a movement. Businesses that lack a mission and a movement are just commodities that blend in with all of the other clutter in our everyday lives. They are so easy to ignore. On the other hand, businesses with a clear mission and a movement stir things up and get people to take notice and take action. A powerful movement will skyrocket your success and allow you to make an explosive positive impact!

Here’s how to really set the world on fire:

Ignite your movement.

Unlike many businesses, your mission is bigger than your bottom line. Sure, you want to make a ton of money, but you also want to make a big difference. Tell the world about your mission—the big reason why you are in business– and the people who are aligned with you will be inspired to support you, do business with you, and help spread your message. They will power your movement. They will amplify the great work that you do.

Serve and serve some more.

When you come from a place of service and truly provide tremendous value, people will champion your movement and gladly tell their friends, family, colleagues, and clients about your great work. Always be thinking about ways to be of service to the people you are meant to serve. Reward them for their loyalty and cultivate long-lasting relationships with the members of your movement. When you do this, your success heightens and your impact spreads.

Light your eternal flame.

If you are like most BrightFire Women, you realize your mission and your movement are much bigger than you are. Creating leverage in your business and scaling up are just two ways to broaden your impact and touch many more people. Perhaps you want to create group programs so that you are able to work with many people at one time. Maybe you desire to hire or train others to do the great work that you do because there just isn’t enough of you to go around. Maybe you want to give back to the community by creating your own charitable foundation or donating to your favorite non-profit organization. There are so many ways in which you can create wide-scale positive change and leave a huge impact in your wake. It’s up to you to light your own eternal flame and decide what your legacy will be.
I encourage you to answer the following:

1) What one person or group of people you would like to share you mission with this week?
2) What is one way in which you can be of service to your ideal clients this week?
3) What’s one way in which you can light your eternal flame and create a positive legacy?

I would love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to drop me a note below.

Feedback & Comments:

  1. I agree that to set the world on fire you really do need to have a specific message and a hot mission. Great tips, Tiffany.

  2. Tiffany, I love the concept of service and live it in my ongoing mentorship of the next generation of PR pro’s. I now have “alumni” in some amazing places including the St. Jude’s Hospital PR department. These girls have done great!

  3. This week I will share my message with Super Women; super moms, super entrepreneurs, and super executives.

  4. Shout it from the hilltops! Let your message be heard.
    Yes, yes and yes!

  5. Great timing as The Anxiety Summit is growing and booming by the minute – this is my movement and I plan to keep things going. It’s giving people hope that they can find solutions to their anxiety and they want to tell everyone about it!

  6. Love your tips to set the world on fire! It’s so true that you must have a mission — a killer why — and you’ve got to get out there as much as possible in a big way! Thanks :)

  7. Never thought of a brand like white bread before but that’s exactly what its like! I’m all for the unique, organic, rye and linseed version not the boring, bland and ordinary! What makes you unique makes you stand out and makes you money
