How To Become Fearless

“Underneath Your Fears Lie Great Opportunituies. Because when you start doing the things that scare you the most, tearing down the invisible barriers that separate you from the good life, you become the person you’ve always dreamed about in your mind: your ideal self.”

~Tony Robbins

If there’s anything in your life or business that you’re not accomplishing, there’s only one thing holding you back.

Fear.

Fear in all it’s forms, fear of failure, fear of cold calling, fear of what people will think of you, fear of looking back – everything affecting you can be traced back to some fear.

Here is a short video with some interesting thoughts:

  Laptop Lifestyle

WALKING ON HOT COALS

There’s a reason why walking bare-foot on hot coals at 2,000 degrees is a famous event of Tony Robbins’ personal development programs.

Now a household iron is only 700 degrees, and if you touch that, your skin will burn. Yet, Roger Salam in the video above has seen everyone from age 4 to age 84 walk on hot coals.

Most people think this is impossible. Yet, 30 seconds later, they have proven they can do it. This is called experiential knowledge, and no one can take it away from you. Once proven you can do something, you’ll never again have the doubt.

Our fear takes over and causes us to tell ourselves that we can not do things.  That they are impossible.  But do you think that if you could prove you can walk on hot coals, that you would be a little bit less doubtful about your ability to do some simple task in your business?

WORK THE HARDEST ON YOURSELF

We have seen and heard of miracle stories such as paraplegics who were told by doctors that they’d never walk again. Yet, they came back slowly, one day at a time.

The first step is always losing your fear and believing that you can do what you otherwise would have thought you can’t do.

Building a business, whether it’s in real estate, online marketing or any other endeavor, is actually easy. Our fear of the unknown causes us to tell ourselves that it’s hard, but it’s really not.

What is truly hard is personal development. If you work the hardest on yourself, you can eventually become the kind of person who attracts success effortlessly, instead of chasing it.

Think of becoming someone who sits on a board of directors. That job is never advertised. It’s only recruited through personal phone calls. What kind of person do you have to be to get those phone calls?

Focus on yourself.   Work on becoming a fearless person, and the material results in business will automatically follow.

Seek knowledge from people who have walked the road of success, and learn how to model their “thinking patterns”.  It is not easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

Why most people who attend business seminars are wasting their time


“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”

                                                                             ~ Paulo Coelho

If you are like me, I am sure you have been to plenty of seminars.  At the end of it you probably had pages of notes.

Sometimes an entire notebook fool of doodles when you got bored and good info when something interesting was said. marketing seminars

You got so many gems – so many things you can do in your business when you get home which will make you a lot more money.  So many, that you don’t know which ones to start with, but you’ll work that out after the event.

You then get home.  And maybe you decide to rest for a day and not look at the notes.  After all, it was a long event.

Then another day rolls around, and you have work.  Or some other commitments that prevent you from getting to those notes.

And then over the next few weeks, which turn into months, life just gets in the way.

Does that sound familiar?

You had the best of intentions with applying everything you learned, but you just got busy.

A year later, you stumble across those notes from that event, now covered in dust, and very little of what you wrote down even makes sense anymore.

I used to go through this all the time.

Until I figured out that it’s better to attend live events with the mentality that you’re looking for just 3 significant things.

It could be 3 powerful contacts / JV partners.

It could be 3 strategies that will have the biggest impact on your revenue.

It could be 3 ways to solve the single biggest challenge your company is facing right now.

Or a combination of all the above. marketing seminars

It has been awhile since I have attended a seminar and I don’t actually feel like going. As of late I have been really focused on learning from new online associates and new people I am meeting in the business.

One of the biggest factors or if not the biggest reason I attended seminars was to network.  Meeting people with different businessess, ideas, and work styles is invaluable.

But nonetheless, focus on 3 ideas to implement in your business and get it to the next level.  It’s impossible to bring the whole pharmacy home and get it to work.

Operation Money Suck


“Opportunity luck is why the rich are rich. Opportunity luck is a unique type of luck the rich create as a result of having good daily habits. When you have good daily habits, you magnify the opportunity for luck to occur.”

                                                                                                                           ~ Unknown

Here is a new concept for you“Operation Money Suck”, designed to help you focus all your time, energy, and attention on making the most amount of money possible from your marketplace.

The goal is to be the dominant player in your market, to take the biggest slice of the pie for yourself.

Legally, morally, and ethically of course.                       make money online now

There is a lot of money being spent by prospects and customers in your market.

The truth of the matter is that you are surrounded by competitors who may be more aggressive than you and are going after the same people you are trying to sell.

It’s a known fact that if you do not show them why they should spend it with you, then your competitors will.

Properly handled, your marketplace is your meal ticket for life. But you have to go after it. From a metaphoric perspective, your competitors are the enemy. They’re going after the same dollars that you want to attract.

There’s very little loyalty in the marketplace. No matter how much your customers like you and trust you, if you’re not connecting with them on a regular basis and making offers to them often, your customers will buy what they need from someone else.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with making as much as you can from your market place.  It means you’re doing your job well, and that you’re providing value to your market. 

I recommend that you think about it very carefully. Here’s the basic formula.

To make the largest amount of money possible, all you have to do is sell and resell enough items, enough times, to enough people, for enough profit each time.make money online now

Commit that to memory. Hang it on your wall. Think it through. Visualize it. Internalize it. Really understand what that formula is all about. It’s as simple as it sounds.

And that’s what I have learned to be “Operation Money Suck” in a nutshell.

The Power of Positive Thinking and Hard Work Go Hand In Hand

“People don’t understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic, and that’s been what has gotten me this far.”

                                                                             ~ Tiger Woods

Going against the “something for nothing” crowd, real success does actually require a lot of hard work. In my case, what I have achieved is far more due to working daily, than to intelligence, talent, natural ability, etc.

That doesn’t mean mean I don’t like my work – most top achieving entrepreneurs love their work – but it is usually hard work nonetheless.

Unfortunately, there’s this big movement being taught in success books that all you have to do is think positive thoughts and everything will come to you automatically. Wealth. Happiness. Sunshine. And Rainbows. Everything good in life.  making money online

Being generally optimistic is important.

In addition to having a positive attitude, you have got to work at it.  People will tell you to think positive and you’ll get positive results. This is true to a certain degree.  I most definately employ this idea in my work, But they forget to mention that along with a positive attitude you also need a solid work ethic.

It’s easy to understand why the “easy” message sells much better than the “work hard” one. Who doesn’t want to take the easiest path? We all do.

Henry David Thoreau once said,The cost of anything is measured by the amount of life you’re willing to exchange for it.”

Bottom line, if you want to be successful in your business, you have got to work at it. making money online

The people who have paid the largest price, in terms of the sacrifice, the commitment, the dedication, the hours they’ve put into their enterprises… those entrepreneurs are the people who are likely to ultimately experience the success they are seeking.

There’s a fascinating story about Bill Gates that I think illustrates this point.

He went to a Mercedes dealer to pick up a new Mercedes and one of the first things he told them was, “I want you to take the radio out of it.”

Puzzled as to why Bill Gates would want to remove the radio from his brand new car, they asked him why. He had them remove the radio simply because he didn’t want any distractions. While he would drive to and from his office, he wanted to stay focused on his work.

Now that is an extreme example, but it represents a man who was totally into his vision. He didn’t want anything to get in the way of his focus on his business goals.

Look, if you really want to make a lot of money, you can’t just have a positive attitude.

You’ll have to focus on and work hard in your business, just like Bill Gates. making money online

U.S. President Abraham Lincoln once put it, “Good things come to those who wait, but only what’s left over from those who hustle.”

It’s true. So get out there and hustle to make your business everything you want it to be.

Don’t Fire Your Boss Yet!

For an entrepreneur with ‘improbable’ and ‘impossible’ dreams, the alleged stability that comes from getting ‘a real job’ is nothing but a sign of slavery. ~Fabrizio Moreira.seth godin job

Normally people who wish to have their own business talk about their present job as if it is the worst thing in the world – a complete inconvenience where they get underpaid, overworked, their boss is greedy and taking home all the rewards.

Having had the experience of both… there are many positive aspects to having a job versus owning your own business.

For most people they ought to be thankful for their job, and thankful they don’t need to make a living by producing value in their own business (because the world would come tumbling down).

I’ve watched many people over the years talk about how much their job sucked.

Complaints about not being paid enough, made to work way too hard for too many hours, and talk about the day they were going to leave it all behind.

Finally they’d work up the courage to quit, show their resentment for the job in how they resigned (very short notice, with no thanks given), then proudly proclaim to everyone on Facebook that today was day they were free – today was the day they had ‘fired their boss’ and were going start a business and make their millions.

Fast forward 6 months, they’d be asking if their job was still available.

So before you quit your job and tell your boss to go to hell, lets discuss a few things.

First, most people quit their day job because of the time excuse; they feel they don’t have enough time to work on their business.

making money onlineI don’t really agree with this.  There’s always time.  It’s a matter of getting your priorities in order.  I would get up at 5am to get a blog post written before going to work.  I would post it and then when I got back, would followup by sending to directories and other sources.

All of us have 24 hours in the day – whether you’re Warren Buffet or a homeless beggar. It’s about priorities.

In order to start a business, you’ve got to move that business into one of your top three priority slots. The closer it is to THE most important thing in your life, the better you will usually do.

You should always be looking for opportunities during the day to accomplish useful work for your business.

This is what you need to think, “if I HAD to get this done given the time I currently have available, how would I do it?”  If there’s no choice but to get it done, amazingly somehow you’ll always find the time.

Using your job as a scapegoat holds no weight.  “I don’t have the time” is not valid anymore.  Find a way to get a few extra hours out of the day to do money producing activities in your business.

Which brings me to my next point…      making money online

Get sales coming in and replace part of your job income, before you go and quit.

It’s plain stupid to go quit a job and start a business when you haven’t even demonstrated to yourself you can get even a few customers.

Prove it to yourself first, by seeing whether people will actually pay you money for your idea or whatever you are selling.   All that matters is, has anyone actually handed you cash for it yet?

If not, you have to keep working on it.

It’s a good idea to wait till your business is almost matching the salary from your job, before you quit your job. Once you have a couple of good months where your business earned you at least 75 percent of what your regular job did, that’s a pretty good time to jump in with both feet.

And don’t quit your job because of one great customer.  Don’t get overexcited after finding your first hyper-responsive client and give up your existing income, because if something happens to that one person then you’ll have a problem.

I will admit, it has been hard for me. Many times I wanted to quit my job and dedicate 100% of my time to my online business.  I did not.  I just kept working and making my business a priority till one day the gates of prosperity opened up for me!

And here I am doing what I love to do and making money every day.

Extroverts Scroll On – Introverts Read This!

“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.” —Tony Robbins

If you identify yourself as an introvert, you might feel a little out of your comfort zone doing online marketing.

Just look around around, and everyone’s putting themselves out there on video, sharing their entire lives through Instagram stories, putting on webinars and branding themselves online. Some are even speaking on stage. 

Making the big bucks in this business seems to be something which comes much more naturally to extroverts.    online marketing

That does not have to be the case.  Plenty of introverts lead company’s and dominate their industries.

I myself am a definate introvert. I get my pal James to do videos for me and I run them.  He loves to do videos.

In the beginning, doing all this online marketing stuff was not something which came naturally to me.  In those first few years, I couldn’t even make a video without feeling way outside my comfort zone (so for those first few years I did zero video marketing). And that is still the case.

And as for speaking on stage – you can hold a gun to my head, and I still will not want to do it.  There is no way in hell I am ever going to get up on stage in front of large crowds of people – it just won’t happen. 

So I started with marketing channels I felt I could do more anonymously, where I could perfect my message.

Like email marketing.  Or writing blog post.

Out of all the people around me, I was one of the last to even get a Facebook account – and I only did it because I thought I could make money with it.

Those 3 channels were pretty much it for me.

I really admire the people who put themselves out there and do it! Our business is growing by leaps and bounds and we have to grow with it or be left behind.  Now talking about me, I am pushing myself every day to do what I have to do and the more I do, the more money I make and the more motivated I get.

For example, I started writing this morning at 5am.  Who the hell gets up to write at that time or much less has the inspiration at that time?

Now video marketing.  Where there is a will there is a way.  I do not like to get in front of a camera, so I pay my friend James to do it.  He does a fabulous job and he loves it. 

Now doing videos is pretty effortless.  I have to write up the material and the camera is a rolling! online marketing

What I am trying to tell you is that we have to keep up with the industry to get our message out there. Sometimes you have to think out of the box.  But it works.

If you don’t like doing videos… then use Camtasia and record your screen, and then just speak over the top of the footage and teach something.

If you don’t want to share too much of yourself on social media, then make all your content about other people and case studies. 

But either way, if you want to earn good money and build your business you’ve got to be willing to put your content and brand out there.

If you are going to be successful in the internet marketing world you have to get out there and do it!

Sounds like a comercial right?  But this is the honest truth.  Thank you for reading.

Print These Off and Pin Them Up – The Only 3 Ways To Build Your Business

“Sustaining a successful business is a hell of a lot of work, and staying hungry is half the battle.”

~ Wendy Tan White

We Should keep one thing in mind and ponder it often. That business, despite us entrepreneurs doing everything we can to overcomplicate it, is actually quite simple.

If you can manage to get the correct ducks in a row, you will make a lot of money.

Ponder this, there’s really just 3 basic ways to build your business:

Get more first-time customers to find you.
Get your current customers to come back and spend more money.
Get your customers to spend more money each time they buy.
Nothing more to think about. Those are the 3 basic ways.

Get more new customers.

Do more business with your existing customers. And/or increase your average ticket size.

Whenever you get confused, go back to the basics.

Those 3 things are worth printing off in big letters, and pinning up in your office as a constant reminder.    build your business

We are all guilty of this, as a business owner we get stuck on the first method, constantly chasing after new customers, but never thinking about the other 2 methods of increasing sales.

Unfortunately, getting new customers is like pedaling a bike up a steep hill on a hot day. It’s tough, sweaty work, and you may have to get off the bicycle and walk it up the hill for a while. You have to do it, but it can be a real chore.

On the other hand, reselling to existing customers is like coasting down the opposite slope of that hill.

To be honest many business people including me, fail to realize that all the profits are in the last two business-building methods.

They’re not building long-term relationships with customers, and they’re certainly not making those people enough additional offers. Because of all that, they’re losing money that could be theirs. build your business

Food for thought. I hope you enjoyed reading my ideas about business.
