Do you live the life you want?

If you said no, then… WHY NOT?

Life is short. You don’t have time to wait for opportunities and solutions that suddenly appear on your doorstep.

Other people know that. You can see them living amazing lives, celebrating success and enjoying every minute of fulfilling their dreams…

And yet you’re still waiting.

Well, that has to change. Starting now.

You see, the main reason you’re not living the life you want is one thing: lack of planning.

To live the life you want, you have to make your own destiny.

Sure, that’s hard! It is much easier to sit back and complain about not getting a break and blame external factors for your dissatisfaction or lack of performance.

But you know what? Whining is not gonna get you anywhere.

Planning gets you everything.

(Or at least much more than nothing).

Self Doubt? We Can Help

self-doubt

Have you ever told yourself that there is something you cannot do? Have you ever had the feeling that you shouldn’t even try a new task, skill, or project because you think you would probably fail?

That’s a big pile of self-doubt right there.

Most of us will suffer from self-doubt at some point in our lives. We tell ourselves that we are not good enough, that we made a bad decision, or that there is simply nothing we can do.

That lack of trust is never far away. Sometimes it can make us panic when we are faced with a challenge – simply because we doubt our ability to cope with it.

Even the people we admire – people who seem confident, happy and successful – are victims of self-doubt. Like everyone else, they can spend hours torturing themselves about how good they are or whether or not they can do anything.

You see, self-doubt often has nothing to do with real abilities. It is just a poisonous thought that stands in the way of achieving our goals.

But to overcome this thought, you need a strategy: This is exactly what we will give you here.

The Hermit On The Mountain

The Hermit on the Mountain

A hermit lived high on a mountain top above a township, and every day as the people below him scurried around, doing their daily tasks, the old hermit would watch.

He had everything that he needed on his mountain, there was plenty of food and supplies, he had a small vegetable garden near his cabin, and he kept a few animals to supply his needs, near a rock pool filled with water that flowed down from further up the mountain.

His life was quiet and content, after breakfast and his morning chores, he would make his lunch and take it to the rocky outcrop where he could sit and watch the activity in the town below.

The town was a long way down, the people running around performing their daily deeds seemed like ants to him, but even through all the bustle and busyness it seemed so peaceful. It looked to him like a great ballet or dance.

He watched the activities in the town every day, finally he decided that he would go down to the town and experience this beautiful ballet for himself. He took his coat and started down the mountain. As he descended, he started to hear strange noises, the closer he got to the town, the louder they became.

Finally, he reached the foot of the mountain. The noise here was almost deafening, everywhere he turned there were people rushing around doing tasks he couldn’t even begin to understand, as he tried to walk through the streets, he was getting pushed and jostled by the crowds of people.

He could not understand where the peaceful and beautiful ballet had gone.

Unable to take it anymore, the hermit fled from the town, back to the safety of his mountaintop. Arriving home, he went to the outcrop and looked down again upon the town, to his amazement the beauty and silence had returned. He could still see all the ants rushing around below, but there was no noise anymore, all the screaming sounds and mixture of voices were gone, replaced with the serene silence he had always heard before.

He sat down and stared in amazement, asking himself how could such peaceful beauty come from such noisy chaos?

In our lives and businesses, we’ll often feel overwhelmed by what’s going on around us, but is it really the stressful pressure-cooker we believe it to be? When we feel overwhelmed, our natural response if to give up, to break down. But instead whenever you feel those times approaching, try to step outside of your normal behavioural patterns, try to step away from the daily issues and look back at them from afar.

Often, you’ll find that the situation or decision that you have lost control of, that is stressing you out, when you step away from it and see it without all the other clutter, it’s not half as bad as you think, and often when you view it from the outside (looking inwards) you can see the solution clearer than you would when you’re right inside the problem.

Each day, take a moment out, step outside of your business, your problems, find your ‘mountaintop’ and look down on your life from there.

It’s all about your perspective, when the one you have isn’t serving you, simply get up and go to another side of it.

Are You Making This Email Formatting Mistake?

In the “old days” when people were only reading emails on computer screens, we were told to “word-wrap” the email text. This was done in order to keep the lines short and make it easier on the eyes. Easier to read…

However, now days many people read emails on their smart phones. Did you ever see how an email that is word-wrapped for a PC looks on the phone? It looks terrible!

It’s way more than just esthetics – people are less likely to read those emails which in turn will hurt your bottom line.

So what can we do to overcome this problem? Here is what I consider to be the better solution to this problem.

Instead of word-wrapping your text, write it without using line breaks inside paragraphs and place it all inside a <div> with a size limit.

When editing your html email, go to source view and add a DIV directive so it surrounds your text, like this: <div style=”max-width: 400px;”> your email text here</div>.

This will, on the one hand, limit the width of the text to 500 pixels (you can choose any size you like) and allows it to shrink down and auto-warp when viewing it on a smaller screen (such as a smart phone).

6 Ways To Improve Focus When Working From Home

The great thing about online marketing is you can do it from home.

The bad thing about online marketing is…

…you can do it from home.

Which often means endless distractions from the internet, the kids, the pets, the neighbors, the housework and so forth.

Here’s how to improve your focus and get productive, starting today:

  1. Follow your own natural rhythms. Some people are more productive and focused in the morning while others do better in the evening. Figure out which hours work best for you, and then block those hours out. Schedule nothing during that time except for work.
  2. Notify your family, friends and anyone else that you have working hours and don’t want to be distracted.
  3. Have a place to work where you do nothing but work. If your workstation is also your play station, your browse-the-internet station and so forth, it will be too easy to get distracted.
  4. Put on music or tones that help you to focus. You’ll find these on YouTube when you search for focus music.
  5. Set deadlines for everything you do. If you have deadlines to honor, you’re more likely to get the work done.
  6. Plan your breaks. Set a timer for 20 minutes, and when it goes off, get up and walk around or do jumping jacks for a minute. You’ll be re-energized and ready to get back to work with clearer focus than if you just try to power through.

Working from home is fantastic in its flexibility, as long as you manage to focus your time.

How to get 50, even 100x more engagement on your offers

Can you guess what today’s hottest social platform for business and branding is called? Here’s a hint: it’s Instagram.

I know what you’re thinking: “isn’t that just for college kids to post selfies and stuff?” And maybe it used to be. But there’s so much more to Instagram than pretty pictures. Instagram users engage 52 times more than Facebook users, and 127 times – no kidding – more than Twitter users.

Maybe it’s because Instagram’s toolbox provides an ideal way to target your best customers and present your brand, offers, and fun updates to people who are genuinely and already interested in seeing them?

Maybe it’s just that right now, people are fatigued by other platforms. Instagram’s a breath of fresh air to many and, now that it’s got over 400 million active users without too many brands in your face (unlike some others I could name…) it could be exactly what your business needs to explode in 2017 and beyond.

Because engagement equals sales, folks, and building relationships with customers on Instagram is super, super easy once you know what you’re doing.

My good friend and colleague Phil Carrick has just released an over-the-shoulder FREE video training course which, like all his digital marketing training products, walks you through everything you need to know to master Instagram for your business and build a huge, loyal, sales-driving following.

Phil’s going to show you:

  • Exactly what tools to use and when
  • How to create content people love to share
  • Why engagement is so sky-high and how to take advantage of it

The best part is, he supports students personally via his members’ area (you’ll get lifetime unlimited access) where you’ll meet some power-playing online entrepreneurs to learn from and share with.

Actually… maybe the best part is that anyone can do this in just a few minutes a day, even if you have zero tech skills. All you need is a mobile phone and you can start building your Instagram Empire right now, today.

Don’t wait – somewhere, right now, one of your competitors is already on it, making sales like crazy and loving every second.

Take a look – this could be the easiest, most efficient audience-nurturing strategy you’ll ever use.

Phil’s a solid guy. He says (and I agree) this video training course is awesome, and that if you decide differently you’re absolutely guaranteed a friendly, no-strings refund. Nothing to lose, tons to gain… go for it! Start today. It’s FREE!
