How to Focus on What’s Important, Not Just What’s Urgent

Time Management. (by Alice Boyes, see at the end of the post).

Do you get to the end of the day and feel that you’ve met your most pressing deadlines but haven’t accomplished anything that’s fundamentally important? You’re hardly alone. In a series of studies recently published in the Journal of Consumer Research, people typically chose to complete tasks that had very short deadlines attached to them, even in situations in which tasks with less pressing deadlines were just as easy and promised a bigger reward.

6 Key Reasons People Enjoy Success Online And Avoid Failure

6 Key Reasons People Enjoy Success Online And Avoid Failure

Success online is an elusive goal for most people.

Sadly in the online marketing area 90% of people who look for a way to make money online fail.  It is a fact of life, but you do not want to be part of the 90%. You want to be part of the 10% who succeed. (see Why Are So Many Internet Startups Failing Today)

Most articles approach this statistic from a negative angle. Why businesses fail.

I wanted to take a more positive slant and focus on turning those negatives into positives.

Here’s a quote to get us started:

“Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed.

1 People Enjoy Success Online: Don’t Go for the Get Rich  Quick Schemes

Dreaming of Getting RichSuccessful people understand that it takes work, effort, and investment of time and money to get a good return on that investment.

If it looks to good to be true then it probably is.

I know you’ve seen those websites with the big house, fancy cars and a yacht moored at some glamorous location promising you it’s all done for you. All you have to do is join. Instant success.

Believe me when I tell you they don’t work. I learned the hard way.

If you want success, you need to go with programs that have proven themselves over the long term.  Earning an income online takes time and lots of hard work. It isn’t fast or easy, so don’t believe anyone who tells you that it is.

We want to appeal to everyone and get rich quick. We want to be millionaires. I’ve got this plan to buy Tasmania you see.

2  People Enjoy Success Online Because They Are Prepared to Invest Time and Money

Invest in Yourself

To run an online business or make money online, there are tools that you need and they are not all free.

You will need a means to capture your an email list of prospects.  This is called an autoresponder. You also need to have a domain name and website hosting.

Successful people understand the need to invest in the right tools to help them succeed.

But many people bring a “free” mentality to online business that they would never think to take to bricks and mortar business.

For some reason, many people believe they can create a business online for little or no investment.

Perhaps it’s all those get rich quick schemes.

When you layout real money for products and services you will work harder to get a return. Whereas, if you haven’t invested anything…what’s to lose if you don’t put any work into it?

If you have limited resource, find someone to work with and set up a monthly budget for your business.

“Most people try to get rich by being cheap.”

3 People Enjoy Success Online Because they Do Their Reseach.

research shockMake sure that any program you want to join or promote has a good product behind it.

Test it out.

Find out how long has the program been running. Who is the owner? If there is no mention of the owner’s name then be careful.  You want a program from someone you can trust.

Check out online reviews. Ask other people who are using the program how they like it.

Do your due diligence. Don’t jump before you look.

 

Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.

4 People Enjoy Success Online Because they Don’t Quit

Don't QuitBuilding a business online takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight. But for people who haven’t invested, they don’t have much in the game. Therefore, when things get a little tough they walk away in disgust and say it doesn’t work.

Successful people do the opposite.

Persistence, patience, and perseverance: those are the words successful people understand.

“No, I don’t ever give up. I’d have to be dead or completely incapacitated.”

Elon Musk

What will keep you going in the face of adversity?

A no-quit attitude is a must.

5 People Enjoy Success Online Because They Understand the Need to Build an Email List

Building and Email ListIf you are going to be successful online you need to have an email newsletter list.  It is that simple.

Truly the money is in the list.

Your list allows you to stay in touch with those who are interested in what you have to offer.

However, you don’t just send your list emails trying to get them to buy from you.

You need to give value to your list and build relationships by sharing good content with them.  The best content is what will help them solve their biggest problems or accomplish their most important goals.  When you have a relationship, you will be able to send them recommendations, and they will see you as a trusted adviser and want to buy from you.

“If you’re not building an email list, you are an idiot. I know that’s harsh, but when companies can destroy your business in one fell swoop you should rely on things you can control.”

Derek Halpern

6 People Enjoy Success Online Because They Take Action

ActionThis seems like a very simple idea. All the previous steps are about taking action.

Things can sound really great in theory but until you take action nothing happens.

A large number of people believe that they personally don’t have to take action, just others around them need to do that.

Many of the programs and online business plans are designed to appeal to people who don’t want to take action.

An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied.

Arnold Glasow

 

The best way to increase your chances of being in the 10% who experience success online is by following what successful people do as I’ve outlined here.

Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

Earl Nightingale’s The strangest secret in the World

Earl Nightingale on: “My Greatest Discovery!”

Earl’s father had left the family when Earl was just twelve years old. 

He was living in a government-issued tent in Long Beach, California with his mother and two brothers. It was during the Great Depression, and like many thousands of families, the Nightingales would have been homeless if not for the help of the government’s Works Progress Administration (WPA), which created 8 million jobs and redistributed food, clothing and housing to the poor.

The disparity between the lives of the haves and have-nots was vast, and it troubled Nightingale. “As a youngster, I didn’t know anything about a sense of achievement, but I was all too aware of being poor,” he says in his book Earl Nightingale’s Greatest Discovery. “It didn’t seem to bother the other kids, but it bothered me. 

What made it all the more exasperating to me, as a boy of 12, was to be poor in Southern California, where there seemed to be so many who were rich…. I decided to find out why some people were rich while so very many of us were poor.”

“What is the secret of success?”

He spent 17 long years seeking the answer. During that time, he joined the Marines, was posted to Hawaii aboard the U.S.S. Arizona, and was one of the few hundred men who survived the battleship’s bombing in Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Nightingale described the chaos and tragedy of the attack: scrambling to battle stations as bombs crippled the ship, seeing friends killed amid shrapnel and flames, getting blown into the water by the concussion of a blast and finally making it safely to shore with help from a Marine officer.

His experience left him with a conviction that he was spared for a reason, says his widow, Diana Nightingale. “He was a great believer in paying the price for what you wanted—whether that was personal freedom or the freedom of your country,” she says. “He came home from the war with great expectations and went about the business of life.”

“He was a man who really did live in the present. He felt the past served as an education and we should take what was valuable from it. He said the future wasn’t promised to anyone and that you should live each day fully and to the best of your ability.”

In 1950, at the age of 29, he found the secret of success in Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich: “We become what we think about.”

“While reading, it suddenly dawned upon me that I had been reading the same truth over and over again for many years. And all of a sudden, there they were, the words, in the proper order that I had been looking for 17 years: the astonishing truth that ‘we become what we think about.’ Those six simple words, in that order, revolutionized my life.”

Seizing new opportunities, Nightingale bought a small Franklin Life Insurance agency and gave pep talks to his salesmen every week.

The talks proved so popular that his manager asked him to record something to be played while Nightingale was away for two weeks.

“I thought about it, turning the ideas over and over in my mind. Finally, I asked myself, ‘What would you tell your children if you found you had only a short time to live? What advice could you pass on to them that would assist them in living highly productive, very successful lives?’ I awakened at 4 the next morning with the answer to that question clearly in mind.”

He got up and wrote down his ideas, and by noon the following day, had recorded the essay. “I called what I had written and recorded The Strangest Secret.” He chose the name because it seemed strange to him that such a simple truth could be secret to so many.

Word spread from insurance agents to their relatives and friends, and demand grew. “The Strangest Secret was the child that grew into the audio recording industry. With no effort on my part whatsoever, with no advertising of any kind, The Strangest Secret became a national best-seller. 

I was ill-prepared to handle the avalanche of orders for that recording. My good friend Lloyd Conant, then owner of Specialty Mail Services, stepped into the breach. He was happy and abundantly prepared to handle the business end of my sudden good fortune. 

The orders continued to pour in from every section of the country. It was astonishing how the word about that recorded message got around. And that was the beginning of what was to become—officially in 1960—the Nightingale-Conant Corporation.”

The recording sold more than 1 million copies, eventually becoming the first spoken-word recording to reach Gold Record status.

In 1959, Nightingale began a radio program called Our Changing World. The show, a five-minute uplifting message, became the largest syndicated radio show of its kind anywhere and was distributed to a worldwide audience via Nightingale-Conant. At its peak, about 1,000 radio stations carried the show.

I personally always loved listening to – and reading – the enlightening words of Earl Nightingale.

The Nightingale-Conant partnership was dubbed a “mastermind alliance” by W. Clement Stone because the skills of both men were so complementary. Between them, they built Nightingale-Conant into the premier audio self-improvement company in the country.

Although Nightingale died over a quarter century ago, his books and audio programs continue to inspire people around the world. Best-selling author and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar says, “Earl Nightingale has inspired more people toward success and fortune than any other motivational speaker on the planet.”

As has been said by wiser people than me, “We all stand on the shoulders of giants.”

Just look at this list: Napoleon Hill stood on the shoulders of Andrew Carnegie and all the other titans of business and knowledge he interviewed before he wrote his book, Think and Grow Rich.

W. Clement Stone stood on the shoulders of Napoleon Hill.

Earl Nightingale stood on the shoulders of Hill and Stone.

Zig Ziglar stood on the shoulders of Earl Nightingale.

Furthermore, each of these stood on the shoulders of such giants as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson – who stood on the shoulders of such people as St. Augustine, Paul of Tarsus, and Aristotle.

Now, you and I have the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of ALL these giants.

A very important take away – in my opinion – from all of this – applied to Internet marketing – or any field of endeavor, for that matter – has nothing to do with Earl’s “words of wisdom”.

Rather think about where he came from.  All too many people today would have used…“growing up fatherless, in the middle of the Great Depression, living in a government-issued tent with his mother and two brothers,” as an excuse for a life of crime and failure.

An excuse to expect and DEMAND preferential treatment from others.

However, Earl did the exact opposite and used his youthful experience of a life of dismal reality to bootstrap himself to a place of world-wide prominence.

You could do the same – if…

IF you have the proper mindset to do so.

Back to what Napoleon Hill said,  “We become what we think about.”

What are you thinking about today?

What are you going to think about tomorrow?

You get to choose.

I hope you choose well.

Will an Internet Business Work for You?

One of the most common questions we get from our students and consultants is: “Will all of this work for me? Can I really do this?”

The answer is; regardless of your age, background, where you’re from, or your experience level, you can start and grow a successful business.

Sometimes all you need is someone to show you how.

In this section you will meet many of our students and consultants, and learn what they are doing to build and grow their online business.

It’s not a problem, it’s an opportunity.

As you build your business, you will encounter tough situations. You can choose to see these as problems, or you can choose to see them as opportunities.

John Chow has always chosen to see opportunities where others may have seen problems, and that’s why he’s been successful in business.

In this video, filmed at the Super Charge Summit in Las Vegas, he talks about an example of a time he chose to see an opportunity instead of a problem.

WHERE JOHN CHOW GREW UP…

John Chow’s family moved to Vancouver when he was 7. Although Vancouver is consistently voted one of the best places in the world to live, close to the mountain and the beach, John Chow’s family did not live on the side of Vancouver that you see on postcards.

They lived on the Downtown Eastside, which is notorious for its drug problems and has the highest concentration of HIV in North America.

It’s not a good place to raise a family, but the young John Chow never saw it as a problem. He always saw it as an opportunity. To him, it was a vast improvement on his neighborhood in China, where the toilets did not even flush.

IS IT REALLY A PROBLEM?

When you’re presented with a tough situation, you can either see it as a problem or an opportunity.

It’s in those tough situations that our brains innovate, brainstorm and troubleshoot to create new opportunities.

When Sara Blakely decided to start Spanx, she had never been an entrepreneur before. You could consider that a problem for her, because she had a lack of experience. But it also meant that she had no fear, because she was naive about what could go wrong.

In a way, having no experience as an entrepreneur was an opportunity for her, not a problem. Within years, she became the world’s youngest female billionaire.

It’s your choice how you look at tough situations. They don’t have to be problems when you can see them as opportunities.

7 Things Great Leaders Never Say

glowing bulb among the gray

As a leader, your words are powerful. Make sure you’re using them in the right way.

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”  —Rudyard Kipling

As a leader, motivating and inspiring people is one of your most important tasks, and the words you say (and how you say them) are your most powerful tool. And if you strive to be a greatleader, there are things you should never say.

Here are seven statements to take out of our vocabulary completely:

1. “There are no problems, only opportunities.”

Yes, problems do come up, and denying them doesn’t make them go away. Although the phrase is often used to encourage team members to think more creatively, it can also communicate that the leader isn’t willing to listen when there are real challenges to overcome. It makes the leader look out of touch and weak.

The fix: Always be willing to listen to your employees, and ensure they know it. The result will be employees who are much more willing to tackle challenges and bring you solutions.

2. “Don’t do anything without asking me first.”

Unless someone is new to a job, micromanaging their every step not only hinders their growth, but is just as unproductive for the leader. When leaders micromanage everything, they bottleneck the process and lower employee morale. Employees are productive when they have meaningful work and the resources and authority to do their job.

The fix: Instead of micromanaging, clarify expectations ahead of time, check on employees appropriate to their training and ability, and follow up with feedback on how they are doing. The goal is to put the right people in the right places and enable them to succeed.

3. “Don’t bring me any bad news.”

Telling employees this doesn’t make the bad news go away, but it can keep a leader from finding out about it in time for it to be managed. Colin Powell, former U.S. secretary of state said, “Bad news isn’t wine. It doesn’t improve with age.” It’s always better to tackle a problem when it’s small than wait until it’s costly or causes bad publicity.

The fix: Create an environment where employees are encouraged to bring up issues when they appear so they can be solved.

4. “It’s not personal, it’s business.”

Business is all about relationships, and relationships are personal. Employees spend the majority of their waking hours at work. Leaders who ignore their feelings will create resentment and have a difficult time carrying out their goals.

The fix: Create a culture where employees know you have a passion for your work, but empathy for people. Demonstrate that you respect them by treating them the way they want to be treated.

5. “We don’t need any more ideas.”

Leaders often reject creative ideas not because those ideas don’t have potential, but because they aren’t capable of handling the fear, uncertainty and anxiety that goes with backing an idea that may be innovative but has potential risk, such as loss or negative judgment from their boss. After all, if the leader backs an unproven idea and the idea goes down in flames, they believe they do, too. The unintended result is that an organization doesn’t thrive and progress without an influx of innovative (and sometimes edgy) ideas.

The fix: Open yourself up to new ideas and ways of thinking. Take employees’ ideas seriously, and get an unbiased person you trust to evaluate how a new idea could be implemented with changes in strategy or process.

6. “I don’t want any interruptions.”

Leaders get interrupted a lot. You need time to plan and reflect, but if your door is always closed and employees never come to update you, it’s probably because the message is clear: You are too busy to be bothered. The downside is you don’t find out what is going well or what needs your guidance.

The fix: Stop what you are doing, turn away from your computer and really listen to your people. When you need to complete an important task and don’t have time to listen, try saying, “I really want to be able to listen to this because it’s an important topic. Please come back in an hour so I can give it my complete attention.” That way, you will stay informed and still be able to complete the things you need a longer block of time to do.

7. “Failure is not an option.”

Leaders who adopt this philosophy instill fear and anxiety in their employees because mistakes are not allowed. No one can take risks or try anything new because they always have to play it safe. This is the best way for leaders to build a stagnant culture and a company that cannot compete in the marketplace. Failure is really a teaching tool to bring us to something greater.

The fix: Ensure your employees know mistakes aren’t fatal—the goal is to discover mistakes quickly, correct them and move forward. If you wait for flawless, you will never begin anything new. The real failure is fear of developing an idea until it’s perfect.

The poor man looked around and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street … He said, Thank GOD I’m not mad.

The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient … He said, Thank GOD am not sick.

Then a sick person in hospital saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary … He said, Thank GOD I’m not dead.

Only a dead person cannot thank God.

Why don’t you thank GOD today for all your blessings and for the gift of life … for another beautiful day.

What is LIFE?
To understand life better, you have to go to 3 locations :

3. Cemetery

At the Hospital, you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than HEALTH.

In the Prison, you’ll see that FREEDOM is the most precious thing.

At the Cemetery, you will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.

How Rick Lax Became The Most Viewed Man In The World From a Coffee Shop…


(Click here to listen now!)

I’ve got this post from Mike Dillard (internet entrepreneur and founder of Self-Made Man project).

I’ve never heard about Rick Lax before and was amazed to learn that millions people saw his video, now I did too. So I am sure you’ll be interested too to read this post.

<<  >>

Hey guys, a few years ago, there is a very, very good chance that as you were scrolling through your Facebook feed, you saw a video from a guy named Rick Lax.

Rick was sitting in a coffee shop, wearing his white Apple earphones, and he was about to perform a magic trick right before your eyes.

He didn’t have a fancy stage or video crew. In fact, he used nothing more than the built in camera on this laptop.

And that’s all it took…

As you looked down at the number of views his simple videos were racking up, your jaw would drop…

20 million, 50 million, 90 million 150 million…

Over and over again, Rick’s coffee shop videos would go viral and get tens of millions of views, until he literally became the most watched man in the world.

Today his magic tricks have been viewed over 6 billion times.

So was it an accident, or just dumb luck?

How was he actually making money from all of this attention? After all, Facebook doesn’t have a revenue sharing program like YouTube?

And exactly who is Rick Lax and where did he come from?

Well today we get to the bottom of all of these questions, and much more in an unprecedented interview with the man himself.

And I’ll just say this…

Rick is a genius… None of this was an accident. In fact, it was all based on a system that he’s going to share with you today.

This is an incredibly special interview, as it represents the first and only time that I’m aware of, where a mega influencer like Rick shares their behind-the-scenes business model…

28 Year Old Millionaire John Crestani Exposes Internet Marketing Secrets

 

John Crestani

Making money online has changed.  Yes, things have changed online…things always change fast in the online world.

 

Things that used to work only 2 years ago, no longer work. Advertising costs on Facebook are screaming higher and scams seem to be more plentiful than ever.

 

But make no mistake, so many things are moving online…people, businesses, jobs, etc, etc…

 

There are things that have not changed also…

 

It has not changed that making money online is still a major opportunity for those wishing to quit the ole 9-5 grind.

 

Facebook is still a good place to advertise, if you know how to do it correctly and follow their guidelines.

 

It takes good mentorship to navigate the minefields and changes that are out there.  A good mentor is something you absolutely need if you want to succeed online.  You simply must learn from those who have already done it and gotten results.

One such person who gives a lot for very little is my friend, John Crestani.

 

John Crestani has made many millions of dollars online and stays ahead of the changes. He is a good person to help guide you through the internet minefield online and get you going in the right direction.

 

This is important because you can and will run into many people who do not have your best interest in mind and who only will take your money and run.  I know this first hand.

 

John Crestani is NOT one of these people.  He puts in the time to make sure you succeed through his internet marketing courses and live webinar training sessions.

 

If you have a desire to succeed online, you couldn’t ask for a better mentor.

We Are Not Direct Selling and We Are Not MLM

In this week’s video, Eric answers the ultimate question: what do we call what we do? Some call it Direct Selling or Multi-Level Marketing (MLM). And some call it Network Marketing.

Right now, we are confusing the world.

The only way we can tell people what we do is by naming a certain company.

“We’re like that company,” we say. We need to have a standard that describes the channel of distribution we represent.

So, what do we actually do?

Ultimately, we sell products to consumers using word of mouth advertising. This is accomplished with three basic strategies.

First, we personally go out and sell the products or services to consumers.

Second, we build and expand a network of other distributors who do the same thing.

And third, we apply leadership to that network to improve productivity of our network.

That is what we do. So, how can we describe that in a term?

MLM is, in Eric’s opinion, a terrible term. All that the term describes is that you can get more than one level from network building. But it doesn’t talk about sales, leadership, or expanding the network. MLM only touches on one little aspect of the compensation plan.

Direct Selling is also, in Eric’s opinion, a terrible term. It still only describes one piece of what we do. Yes, we take products and sell them directly to consumers, but so does the kid with the lemonade stand. Most of the world is involved in Direct Selling to some extent.

The best description is Network Marketing. Network Marketing perfectly covers how we are in the business of marketing products and services through a network of ever expanding and increasingly productive distributors using word of mouth advertising.

Eric realizes that this might be controversial, and some people might run away from defining us as Network Marketers. But we need to be proud of what we do and provide. Our entire profession and all of the companies represented in it need to say “Yes, I’m a part of Network Marketing. Yes, I’m proud of it, and for the average person with entrepreneurial dreams it is a better way.” The faster that happens, the faster the entire profession gets standardized around the world and we stop attacking each other by trying to differentiate what we are.

We need to be proud to be Network Marketers. Proud of who we are and the quality of the products and services we provide. So, spread the word. We are Network Marketers. Tell your friends and family, your company, your contacts, everyone. With shoulders back and chins up, let’s go tell the world that we have a better way.


Note: Here is a good example of network company you can join today!
