    5 Tips To Get You Motivated To Start Taking Action

    Motivation is the driving force behind life-enhancing change. It comes from knowing exactly what you want to do and having an insatiable, burning desire to do what’s necessary to get it. It keeps your dream on track as it is the power of motivation that keeps you going when the going gets tough.

    Here’s 5 top tips to help you supercharge your motivation:

    1. Create a vision board and fill it with images of your desired goals. The car you want to own, the house you want to live in, the area where you want to live yes, they’re the obvious ones. Others could be pictures of holiday destinations, trophies, first-class travel tickets, clothes you want to buy, fine restaurants you want to frequent – whatever you can think of that gets your pulse racing.

    2. GET ANGRY. If you want to change your life for the better then get angry about where you’re at now. Having a bad attitude towards change isn’t what’s needed and it won’t create a strong desire within you. So ask: “Why do I want to change?” Is it because you’re FED UP with debts? Does your job DRIVE YOU CRAZY? Is your life DULL AND PRECITABLE? Are you SICK AND TIRED of doing the same thing week in week out? Are you BORED BEYOND BELIEF by the dull, uninspiring, unhappy people you associate with? THEN GET ANGRY ABOUT IT. And I mean REAL ANGRY. Write it all down, all of the frustrating, unrewarding, miserable lot of it that makes every day a dull slog until your final days. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?

    3. Speaking of your final days, start to appreciate the value of time. Time is one of the most precious resources you have and it is also a NON RENEWABLE resource. You can either use it fully or squander it. If you want to create change you’re going to have to invest a lot of time to make it happen. Start to reduce the time you waste on irrelevancies: Television, newspapers, lie-ins, weekends spent shopping, partying, dining out, visiting an endless line of relatives and friends – these won’t help you get what you want and all of them will rob time from you. Valuable time that you can use much more effectively by investing it in YOU. Remember this: You have a finite amount of time here on Earth. You don’t know how much time you have – no one does. But it’s how you use the time you have that counts. So make your time count and that means starting from right NOW.

    4. Conformity. Are you a mindless little sheep who’s way too timid to pursue your own way? Do you have to follow where everyone else goes, doing exactly what everyone else does and therefore, who gets the same levels of happiness as all the other little sheep? Seriously, does this describe YOU? Are you too frightened to be different than all of the other sheep because they wouldn’t like it if you decided to follow a different path? So you dutifully trot along following all the other sheep because if they’re doing it then that’s how it is right? But if you do what everyone else does you’ll just get what everyone else gets. Do you want to be a mindless, timid little sheep who blindly follows all the other sheep? Or do you want to be a leader, a warrior who possesses the courage to be uniquely you and to do what you want to do and make your dreams happen? If so then this means you have to be more like a tiger than a sheep. Do you really want to be a sheep? I mean, haven’t we got enough sheep already?

    5. Fear your fear.  Brian Tracy said it best, “Do the thing you fear, then the death of fear is certain.”

    Fear is the force that is determined to stop you in your tracks and rob your dreams from you. But it can only do this if you let it. Are you going to let this cruel destructive charlatan trample on your dreams, steal your happiness and crush your spirit? Imagine this thought haunting your final days: “I didn’t do the things I wanted because I was too frightened to live”. And by then, it’ll be far too late to conquer fear. Refuse to let fear spoil your life and start taking action – now!

    The world is waiting for your unique gifts. Why keep it waiting any longer?

  • Preselling Advice

    Preselling Tips

    If you are into online marketing, it is imperative that you fully understand and practice effective preselling. You do not need to be an expert marketer to be able to do so. Contrary to common beliefs, preselling is not a technical skill. It is not something that you should be uncomfortable with. Instead, it could be the key to your online marketing success. So what exactly is preselling?

    People browse the Internet for information. Generally, they go online not to buy anything. They just search for information they need or facts that could help not just their selves but also their relatives or friends. However, if they find something worth buying as they read information, they could be made to purchase. That is what preselling is all about. You would condition the minds of online consumers to buy your products and ideas.

    Your Website should feature information. It should have helpful, relevant, interesting, and credible information. Online consumers are strangers to your online site. It is your job to endear your Website to them. You should succeed to make them think and feel as if your site is the right venue where they could get all the information they need in whatever niche your site is in. You need to establish yourself as an authority in your chosen niche.

    When you establish that connection with your online readers, you are gaining the power and capability to presell. If you manage to make readers feel and think that you are a reliable friend instead of a greedy entrepreneur who desperately needs money, then you are ready for preselling. As a friend of your online readers, you could provide information, tips, and recommendations that they would find credible, useful, and helpful.

    Preselling is all about making your online visitors like you. It is all about how you establish yourself as a reliable and worthy expert in the perception of your readers. You should not make yourself look like a salesperson. Online consumers are usually allergic to such professionals. But they always trust whom they could refer to as friends or experts in specific subjects.

    In your Website, you must condition your readers that the information you share are accurate and are credible. If they find helpful substance in everything you say they surely would develop trust in you. When you are able to do so, you would become a credible authority or a trustworthy friend. Your recommendations and advices would be taken seriously.

    This way, if you tell your readers to buy the products you sell and you are able to justify the reasons why they should do so, you are employing effective preselling skills. You could also do affiliate marketing for others. You could opt not to sell anything on your Website, but you could direct your readers to Websites that could give them what they actually need. This is affiliate marketing and it is one effective way to earn across the Internet.

    You could use videos and reviews when you are preselling. Do so to be able to impress your online readers more. Also make sure you are able to maintain your credibility and authority so that your readers will continue to come back for more.

    *Try stepping outside your comfort zone once in a while. Great things come to pass when you make friends with your discomfort zone.

    *Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. There is an old saying that people who haven’t made mistakes haven’t made anything. Make mistakes and learn from them.

    *Be aware of any negative thoughts you hold about yourself – challenge them, are they really true, if so what is the evidence? Are you giving yourself a hard time?

    *Make an effort to try and look on the bright side of things. Purposely find something positive about the issue and focus on that. You can almost always see another side of things. It just depends where your bias is.

    *Read some good uplifting books,

    *Train yourself to finish what you start. Follow through – you owe it to yourself and others.

    *Realize that setbacks and knocks are just a normal part of life. If life were brilliant all the time we would take it for granted and not appreciate it.

    *Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could.. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

  • Making Money with Articles: Niche Websites

    Posted on December 24th, 2010 Tim No comments



    Make Money Writing Niche Articles

    Choosing a good niche subject to base your website around is one of the most important aspects of making money off of your articles. This will give you a foundation to build from and you can target one general audience with a pack of keywords that they are most likely to be searching for. You should take each one of these keywords and use it for the basis of one article on each page. This way, even though you are targeting one specific subject, you will be sure to interest a wide variety of people in that one niche. They may also find other pages that interest them, which will keep them returning to your site to learn new information about the niche subject.

    The best way to find keywords for your niche subject is to use a keyword software program and type in the word that is the subject of your niche. This will generate a list of keywords or phrases that contain your niche and will also show you approximately how many people search for each word or phrase. Some software programs may also tell you how many sites are out there to compete with for each word or phrase (this will help you know if those sites are worth competing with for the number of searches out there). You then deicide which of these would be most profitable by determining which have the least amount of competitors, so that you have a chance at making it to the first or second page of search engine results, but that also have a decent amount of people looking for that keyword or phrase each month. These will be the keywords or phrases that you will base the pages of your niche site on.

    If there are a number of topics that you like, pick the one that you feel would be easiest to start with and then, once that site is built and generating some revenue, you can start another site. The most profitable website marketers, who use their talent of finding niches and combining that with good site content and a handful of affiliate links, have a good amount and variety of niche sites that they have started. You are never limited in what you can do with niche website marketing, unless you find out that you do not have the marketing skills or the needed funding to make it happen. Otherwise, the sky is the limit!
