The Key To Success is The Power of Believing in Yourself

The Key To Success is The Power of Believing in Yourself

What is the key to success??? There are so many ingredients in the success stew, so how do me and you figure out the ones we just cannot do without? Trust me on this, the key to success is to believe in yourself!!! OK OK before you get all mad at me and say that is the THE key to success I will re-phrase that to say that ONE of the many keys to success is to believe in yourself. Lets face it, without this one ingredient you probably will not achieve the life of your dreams, and you will forever be stuck in the cycle of just wishing for the life of your dreams! Think about massively successful people such as Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, Elon Musk and Mark Cuban; do you think they had it easy in creating the life of their dreams? Do you think they experienced a setback or two and had to pick themselves back up form that “failure”? You bet they did….BUT They had the key to success and they believed in themselves? That is why they were able to pursue their vision despite the enormous failures they experienced, and why they could persevere for years before they eventually created their version of success. As you are a person that is committed to achieving more success in your life, you are going to experience setbacks (Im sorry to tell you but shit is going to happen that you did not expect). The big difference between successful people and losers is that the successful people know how to overcome obstacles and setbacks that naturally show up in life. The way you overcome setbacks is by believing in yourself and believing in your ability to make it eventually no matter what happens along the way. Here are two daily success habits that will help you improve your self-belief and create the life of your dreams: 1. Focus On Your Successes It’s very easy to fall into the mistake of looking at everything that has gone wrong in your life, and then beating yourself up because of mistakes that you have made along the way. It’s a natural human tendency to get stuck on the negative things and dwell on setbacks and things that have gone wrong. Try this instead… Firstly look at setbacks as nothing but an opportunity to learn and adjust your actions. Secondly and most importantly focus on the good things that happened for you during the day. Every night before you go to bed grab your journal and write down at least 3 successes you had during the day. This will get you into the daily habit of looking for the wins that you had, and appreciating those wins so that by the Law Of Attraction more wins come to you. So no matter how big or how small they may be, focus on your successes! 2. Practice Positive Self-Talk Change the way you speak to yourself about how things are going for you. Try speaking to yourself like you are already as successful as you want to be, like you are already a powerful unstoppable champion. Do not speak to yourself (or others) like a victim who has no control over what has happened, speak like a winner that has ultimate control. We cannot change what has happened, but we can change how we respond to what has happened. When things go wrong physically tell yourself that you are getting better and better every day. Tell yourself that there is nothing you cannot achieve when you commit to it. Say things like “I am a winner”, “I am a Champion”, “I am an overcomer”, and “I can do it” This may be weird at first but give it a try, you have nothing to lose and all the belief in the world to gain In Summary If you do not believe in yourself at your core, then how will anyone else believe in you? If you do not believe in yourself then how do you expect your family to know that everything will be fine? How will your co-workers and bosses have faith in you and your decisions if you don’t believe in yourself? How can you create your ideal life and the wealth you desire if you don’t believe in yourself? Believe in yourself…you can do it!!!

4 Ways to Awaken Your Inner Wisdom

4 Ways to Awaken Your Inner Wisdom

In today’s information age it is really easy to be the victim of information overload and feel very frustrated that you cannot come up with any great ideas of you own. But the funny thing is that you probably already have most of the big ideas that you need to get ahead already. But these ideas are buried deep within your subconscious mind and are not easily accessible. You need to learn how to awaken your inner wisdom so that you too can also come up with magical ideas. Lets face it, how ofter have you seen the latest miracle product and thought to yourself “that is pretty dam simple, what didn’t I think of that?” Well you can think of it: You need to practice using your inner wisdom so that you can awaken your inner wisdom. 1. Quite Your Mind. To listen to your inner wisdom you sometimes need to be be counter-intuitive and do absolutely nothing. This is especially true when you are always very busy and on the go. You need to slow down the crazy swinging monkeys that are your thoughts, so take a chill pill. Do some meditation, go sit by a river or ta beach and watch the water, go on a vacation, chill out and slow down. Get out of your day-to-day routine and let your mind go blank. To hear your inner wisdom you need to shut up your conscious thoughts and and let the ideas from your inner wisdom flow to you, so do nothing. 2. Start a Daily Journal. To tap into your inner wisdom get out a paper and pen and let ideas and thoughts flow from your mind to the paper. Try writing a couple of pages of random thoughts first thing in the morning, don’t edit what comes out of you, just let everything flow out onto the paper. The idea is to write for the trash can, what I mean is write stuff that is not meant for anyone else to read. Let your thoughts flow knowing that your writing does not need to be good, its just a brain dump, nobody will ever read it. Its amazing how you subconscious mind will start formulating ideas when you give it the freedom, be patient, it may take a number of days to release your inner wisdom. 3. Pay Attention To Your Thoughts. If you think the thoughts that pop into your head at random times of the day are meaningless then you may be missing the big hints your inner wisdom keeps giving you. Pay attention to the little thoughts you have all throughout the day. Keep your journal nearby and make note of what comes up during the day. You may be singing in the shower one moment and the next moment the worlds best idea pops into your head…problem is we tend to ignore, or forget, these ideas if we don’t pay attention and make some notes. 4. Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously. Being to serious can stifle the inner wisdom we all have. Feel good about yourself, laugh a lot, lighten up, do things that make you feel good. Studies have shown that people with a sense of humor are more creative and listening to something funny before taking a test has even been proven to improve test scores. So laugh more, laughing releases chemicals that make you feel good, and that will make you more relaxed (see item 1) and let your creative juices flow to bring forth that inner wisdom. The bottom line is most of what you need to know is already inside you, all you have to do is strengthen that inner wisdom muscle by using it more often. Patience is required for this just as you would need to be patient if you started working out in the gym. Consistency over intensity is the way to go.

5 Basic Building Blocks of a Profitable Online Business

5 Basic Building Blocks of a Profitable Online Business

At the turn of the 20th century the captains of industry where people like Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie. You probably know who they were, they built massive industrialized businesses in the motor car manufacturing and steel production industries. But today things are just a little different. The internet has launched the careers of the modern successful entrepreneurs like Mark Cuban, Elon Musk, and Peter Thiel, they all got their start in an online business. The power of the internet provides a massive opportunity to run a worldwide business with just your laptop and an Internet connection. I recently saw somewhere that about 2.5 billion people log onto the internet daily, and that number will grow dramatically in the near future. This is both good and bad news. The good news is that the internet offers you an unprecidented opportunity for you to create your own online business, but the flip side is there a lot of other people will also flock to the internet to create their wealth as well. So how will you distinguish yourself from all the other modern “gold rushers” that are also going to tap into this massive resource? If you have that “gold rush”spirit then here are a few pointers for you to consider. 1. Cut Through The Clutter. There is a ton of information out there on how to make money on the internet. Every day you will be bombarded with information from the latest “guru” that has “the” system that cannot fail you. You do need to cut through the information overload and focus on one niche when you start your online business. Once you make that first business profitable you can expand to the “multiple streams of income model” and build other online businesses. But at first focus on who you want to serve and how you want to serve them. By focussing on one “niche” at a time you can cut the information overload and use the “Power of Focus” to your advantage. 2. Get Eyes To Your Offer. What I mean by this is that when you have an online business traffic is king. You have to get people to “see” you by visiting your website to see what your business is all about. You can build the best WordPress site ever, with every one of the latest widgets and plugins in the world, but no one will ever find you. The old “build it and they will come” thing just doesn’t fly with an online business! There are two basic ways of getting traffic to your website; free traffic and paid traffic… Free traffic comes from sources like article marketing, guest blogging, forum comment posting, podcast interviews, Youtube videos, and search engine optimization, which are just a few of the many free traffic sources. Paid traffic comes from sources like media buying, google pay per click ads, Facebook Ads, bing ads, banner ads and many more. 3. Plan To Make Money. I know that sounds a bit redundant because this article is about having an online business, and that would imply that generating an income is part of the deal. But you may be shocked at how many online businesses do not actually generate a profit. So, big shocker here but you need a monetization plan so you can turn the traffic to your website into an income. What products and services will you have and how will you make them available to you visitors? 4. Fail Small. You have developed your plan to create wealth, but now you have to test and refine that plan. Just like in any battle your plan will go out the window once the first shot is fired. The beauty about an online business is that you can test your concept for a few hundred dollars. That is what I mean by fail small. Just commit small amounts of financial resources to figure out if what you have to offer will work or not. If it doesn’t work, you have not lost your shirt, just refine the plan and test it again. Keep “failing small” by testing concepts till it pays off for you. 5. Scale The Business. If you follow this formula you have focused on one “niche”, you have a lot of traffic to your website, and you have a plan to generate income from that traffic that you have tested and refined. Once you have “cracked the code” the next step is to scale the business. this means you have all the pieces in place, you know what your conversion ratios are, you know what it costs to get eyes to you offer, and you know what income you generate from that. Now its simply a case of reinvesting your profits by turning up the heat, increase your paid traffic expenditure and get affiliates

How Successful People Think – 7 Signs You Will Be Exceptionally Successful

How Successful People Think – 7 Signs You Will Be Exceptionally Successful

The principles to becoming successful are actually pretty simple if you model how successful people think. Now that doesn’t mean that success is necessarily easy to accomplish. It’s not that hard to learn what it takes to be successful, but it is much harder to actually apply the success principles with diligence and perseverance. Want to know how successful people think? They want to be successful because they believe it is their birthright to claim all they are entitled to in this amazing world. Each one of us needs to define what that success is for ourselves, because we are all different, we different hopes and dreams, and we all want different things. And because we are different and want different things, there is no one “cookie cutter” success solution that works for everyone. There is no magic pill you can take to get there. We all need to model the success principles and beliefs that have worked for others, and mould them to our unique personality and abilities. So model how successful people think and mould that to your own personality. How do you think about success? Check out some of these signs that you will be successful and figure out how you can mould them to fit your life: Here Are 7 Signs You Will Be Exceptionally Successful: 1. You Appreciate The Success Of Others. Truly successful people are not jealous of other peoples success, in fact they show genuine recognition for those that make it big. The fact that someone else has done it inspires and encourages successful people to know that they can reach for more. 2. You Are Open To New Ideas. Successful people never let them selves stagnate. They are always willing to look for ways to improve because they understand that in life you are either growing, or you are dying. Successful people are always growing. So be open to new ideas, look for ways to advance your knowledge. 3. You Love What You Do. Because you love what you do it never feels like work to you. Your business is your life and it energizes you and motivates you to take bigger action. Because it is a part of who you are and you love it so much, you learn everything you can about your work and you become intimately knowledgeable about the market you are involved in. 4. You Know The Difference Between Sympathy And Empathy. Successful people create their success by providing service to others, and because of that they understand others on a deeper level, they see things from the other persons perspective. But there is a difference between sympathy and empathy. Sympathy is where you feel bad when others feel bad, and empathy is where you acknowledge that others feel bad but you do not feel bad yourself. So you want to have empathy because feeling bad when others feel bad will derail your success. 5. You Measure Yourself Against Yourself. Success is not measured by what you have done compared to what others have done, rather success is measured by what you have done compared to what you could have done. Successful people measure themselves and derive their motivation from within, they don’t fall into the trap of social comparisons, but instead they are driven by a deeper desire to be true to themselves. 6. You Don’t Follow The Herd. If the statistics are true and 98% of people do not have what they want in life, then it is logical to conclude that the 2% that do have what they want are not a part of the herd. Super successful people follow a different path to the masses, they march to a different drum. They do things that average people think is too inconvenient….and that is what sets them apart. 7. You Are a Steward Of Your Money. You understand that while money brings you good things in life it does not define you. You have been granted stewardship over the money you have, and you have been entrusted to do good with it. You love people and you use money; not the other way round. You understand that money is earned through service rendered and you provide more in use value than you receive in cash value. So how did you measure up against these signs? What areas could you improve on?

5 Ways to Overcome Obstacles

5 Ways to Overcome Obstacles

5 Ways to Overcome Obstacles – So You Do Not Succumb To Temporary Defeat   Recently I came up with a brand new business strategy that I just knew was going to work. I mean all of a sudden it was very clear to me why my previous plans were not working as well as I had expected. I was missing this one piece, what a dumbass, how could I have missed this for so long? So I activated the new and totally amazing, incredible, profound, and brilliant plan…and… Fuck me it didn’t work!!!!! Now I don’t want to blow smoke up your arse, so I am going to tell you straight up that things will not always work out the way you think. The trick to success is realizing that there is a lesson to be learned. The only way you fail is if you don’t take the time to learn and adjust and instead decide to quit!!! As Napoleon Hill says every defeat hold the seed of an equivalent or greater advantage (or something like that, I am too lazy to look it up right now so maybe you can post the exact quote in the comments box for me) So here 5 ways to overcome the temporary defeat that comes along every now and again. 1. Understand That Things Don’t Always Go As expected It really helps when you understand that not everything you do will work out perfectly. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that just because you followed a specific success strategy that everything you touch will turn to gold. When you take action towards what you want there will be some obstacles to overcome. Successful people are not people that have no obstacles, they are people that know how to overcome their obstacles. 2. Look For the Lessons Everything that happens, even the so called negative events, have a lesson for you to learn (whether you believe it or not is up to you). If you do believe there is a lesson in your temporary defeat you will look for it and learn from it. If you don’t believe there is a lesson for you then you may just blame everyone else for what is going wrong in your life. So what can you learn from what went wrong…you will be amazed at how much you can develop yourself from these lessons… 3. Do Some “Re-Framing” When things go against you it is time to take a step back and do some re-framing. This is when you look at things in a different way, or from a different viewpoint, or put a different frame around it so that it changes its meaning. This will give you a new perspective of the situation. 4. Go As Far As You Can See When things go wrong it may be a natural reaction to pull back and not want to take any action until you have plotted out and entirely new plan. While you do need to plan ahead, you do not have to have every single detail of the the entire plan laid out before you start. Very often the steps that come next reveal themselves to you when you take action. So make the adjustments you need and do what you can see in front of you right now. Go as far as you can see and when you get there you will see further. 5. Take Full Responsibility for What Happens A natural reaction is to look for excuses or blame other for what has gone wrong in your life. Consider the reality that you brought this temporary defeat upon yourself. Now I know this is a really tough one to accept, hell it took me years to get this lesson into my thick scull, because why would I possibly make myself fail? Well here is the deal, we create everything in our lives, even the “bad” stuff. Once you accept full responsibility for that, life becomes a little simpler!   Want some more great success strategies to overcome obstacles and take your life to the next level? I am having a live training session where I am teaching some amazing strategies on how you can become more successful…all you need to do is reserve your seat now by clicking the image below…

6 Traits Of Successful People

6 Traits Of Successful People

6 Things Super Successful People Do Daily There are certain traits of successful people that lead to their success. Amongst others super successful people have pleasing personalities, and they get the best out of other people. They also know how to be a leader in their own lives so they get the best out of themselves as well. One of the traits of successful people is that they know how make a lot of money. Lets face it, money is one of the tangible ways to actually measure your success, BUT…and a big BUT at that, money is not the only yardstick by which to measure your success. To be super successful you must love people and use money and not do that the other way around. Loving people means you make a difference in both their personal and professional lives. Here are some ideas that you can implement on a daily basis to develop the traits of successful people: 1. Listen More Than You Speak. You were given two ears and one mouth so use them proportionately! A novel concept right? How many times have you had a “conversation” with someone and you could tell all they were doing was waiting for their turn to speak, they didn’t absorb a word you said, they just waited of the gap in your talking and they jumped right in so they could say their shit. How did you feel about that person? Well then maybe its time we start listening to what people have to say, make them feel important, ask them questions, ask them to expand on their ideas. They will feel like a million bucks and you will reap the benefit. 2. Get Busy Doing What The Others Are Still Speaking About Don’t wait on things to come to you, go out there and make things happen. People are drawn to a leader ad a leader gets things done. While other people are still taking about ideas and figuring it all out you could have started taking some action, while other are still messing around you have already sent some emails, set up some meetings, done some research. People will follow you when you make shit happen. Don’t wait, get busy now. 3. Recognize The Efforts Of Others. There are so many ways to show others you care about other people; how you do anything is how you do everything. So how do you treat the cashier the grocery bagger, the delivery person? Remember to love people and use money so say thank you to anyone that does anything for you. Go the extra mile, make eye contact, exchange a word of kindness, and acknowledge them for what they are doing. You will see them beam and that will come back to you tenfold. Respect comes by giving respect. 4. Dominate, Don’t Domineer. You’re in charge so take control of the situation. But ether is a big difference between dominating and domineering; lets go to so dictionary definitions… Dominate “to rule over; govern; control.” Domineer “to rule arbitrarily or despotically; tyrannize.” Ever worked for a domineering boss? Don’t be that way, take control and be in control, but do not be a tyrant. 5. Celebrate Life. As a super achiever you do have big plans and you are working towards some big goals. But you don’t want to fall into the trap of never being satisfied because you never reach your goals. There is a fine balancing act to follow here, you want to keep yourself “mentally broke”, meaning you avoid complacency by always working towards more than you have right now; but you must be happy where you are right now. So get out the tight rope walking equipment and walk the line of celebrating your mini wins and constantly striving for more in life. 6. Know How To Criticize People. You re taking action and getting things done and sometimes your team will fuck things up and piss you off. When that happens it’s a natural reaction to go off the deep end and really chew people out. But be realistic, people make mistakes and how you handle that is crucial to how they will react to you. Remember the dominate vs domineer definition? So when you have to criticize us ether “sandwich method”; first acknowledge them for the good things they have done in the past, then explain that what they have done now id not up to their usual standard, then tell them you know they will do great things in the future. Remember to address the “actions” and not the “person”.   Super successful people get things done; they get other people to support their vision because they love people and treat them accordingly.   Thank you for taking the time to read this

Getting Things Done – 2 Secrets To Success

Getting Things Done – 2 Secrets To Success

Getting Things Done – 2 Secrets To Success Do you want to get things done more effectively and with way more productivity than you are achieving right now? If you answered yes then here are 2 secrets to success for you to ponder… How can you become more productive in what you do on a day-to-day basis? Now I specifically asked what you must do on a day to day basis because one of the secrets to success is showing up 100% in the mundane things. Success is not just all about the huge “peak” accomplishments. No, success is about how you do the small things daily when no one is watching. Success is about consistency over intensity, you have to set yourself up for the long haul because success comes from doing the right thing long enough consistently. While you may just get lucky and achieve overnight stardom, most likely that came to you because you showed true persistence and followed through on your decisions to make things happen in your life by taking consistent action… So here are two very simple questions to ask yourself: 1. What Do I Want? You may be surprised to hear that the number one reason people don’t achieve success is because that do not know what they want. So many people don’t even know what they want and don’t set a specific goal, or they know what they want but define it in very vague terms. So to boost your effectiveness and to become more productive ask yourself “What Do I Want?” What is the specific outcome that you are trying to achieve today? Not in five years’ time, but today? Got it? Good Now ask the second question… 2. Now What Needs to Be Done? This is very “activity” driven question specifically designed to move you in the direction of what you want. Now the Law of Attraction does exist, and it is a very powerful tool to help you get what you want…but all that manifesting will come to naught if you don’t take some action! So what can you start doing right now that will take you closer to what you want? You want to get the momentum going and make consistent progress that is sustainable, and you do that with making baby steps. Write down the small actions you can take right now…then here is a shocker…DO THEM!!!! Leaders do the things that need to be done to achieve success and you are the leader of your life…so do the small things that need to be done and they will snowball into big things that carry you along to your dreams. Want to get more done in your life right now? Then get Secret Success Blueprint by clicking the picture below now.

5 Simple Ways to Reduce Stress

5 Simple Ways to Reduce Stress

5 Simple Ways to Reduce Stress IM NOT STRESSED!!!!!!!! Really? Let’s face it, today’s modern world does not reduce stress, it has larger demands on all of us that ever before, and that all lead to unprecedented stress levels! All this technology we have is supposed to make our lives simpler but it’s had a reverse effect and made us a slave to our own lives. We are never “away” from our work. People text and email at all times and they expect an answer back immediately. Haven’t you had people get mad because you didn’t respond to their text within a few minutes? Now people even feel bad when they turn their phones off while in a movie theater in case someone tries to get hold of them…ok some people don’t give a shit about others and continue their worldly interaction to the annoyance of everyone else in the theatre. What is the first thing people do when the aircraft wheels hit the runway?? That’s right, they plug right back into that stress ball of technology to see what they missed, who wants what from them, who is mad at them…and so the stress grows. To handle the pressures and stresses of the world, and to prevent burnout, we do need some strategies to deal with the situation… While this is certainly not all inclusive list, here are some ideas that can lead to a less stressful life:   1. Don’t Confuse Activity for Accomplishment So many people spend hours and hours at work and toil away at their jobs getting extremely stressed. But…they don’t accomplish anything!!! Just because you are busy does not mean that you are making progress. Make sure you focus on the most important things that need to be accomplished every day. The only thing that counts is results, so what are your 6 highest priorities today? Write them down and order them from highest to lowest priority, then start on the highest, get it done, and work down the list.   2. Ask For Help Part of confusing activity with accomplishment is toiling away trying to figure something out that you don’t know much about. However there is someone who knows exactly what you need to do, in what order to do it, and what pitfalls to avoid. Identify work colleges who know more about what you are working on than you do, and go pick their brains. Their knowledge and access to resources can give you a shortcut to accomplishment, and reduce all that stress of re-inventing the wheel. In your personal life get some help at home. What is your time worth to you? So why not hire someone to clean the house once a week, or do the lawn…that will free you up to follow some of the other suggestions in this article.   3. Sharpen Your Axe Now that you are spending less hours at work because you are focusing on accomplishment and not activity, and you have people doing the chores you used to spend hours doing; now you can focus on sharpening your axe. You have heard this story before but it’s worth repeating “A woodchopper goes to work at 6am every day, he chops wood all day without a break until 6pm. A second wood chopper starts chopping wood at 8am, takes an hour and a half lunch break, and goes home at 5pm. This second wood chopper chops twice as much wood as the first. Frustrated that he works so much harder but accomplishes less the first woodchopper confronts him and asks how he can chop so much more wood when he works so much less. The answer…the second woodchopper takes a long lunch where he eats, rests, and sharpens his axe. Because the has fueled and rested his body he is much stronger and can work harder, and because he has a sharper axe so he is much more efficient” How can you sharpen your axe every day?   4. Focus On Your Short Term Goals When you set very big long term goals and focus on those it becomes very stressful because you never feel like you are making any progress toward you goal. We need some payoff for our efforts to prevent us getting stressed. That’s why you set a long term goal, but then focus on very short term accomplishments such as daily goals. That way you are having mini wins all the time that you can celebrate. This way you feel like you are making progress and don’t end up being a big stress ball.   5. Meditate Imagine this…Picture a very stormy ocean, I’m talking 100+ foot waves crashing around in an angry violent rage. Think the Perfect Storm on steroids. Now imagine this storm is your mind and you
