How to Brighten Your Day

Every internet marketer knows that it can be a real drag getting things done. I’m going to show you a simple series of daily discipiplines I do to get the day rolling right.

Sit upright. Yup, you heard me right. Before I fall out of bed, I sit up in bed. Admit it, marketer; getting up in the morning can be hard, especially if your day is swirling before you. Product launches, blog posts, and new ebooks to write. Hey, whatever it is that you do on the internet, take a moment to think it out before your feet hit the floor.

Coffee (sorry, Mormons). If you can’t drink coffee (which I personally consider to be one of the five food groups), then drink something to clear your mind and get you going. An energy shake, just water, or something.

Write. Just write. What needs to get done today? I segment a piece of paper into six sections and as I’m reviewing my day, list my to do’s in each section.

Schedule.  Each “to do” gets a time.

Pray. Yes, it’s really true; without a spiritual program, I know I would never be number one on Google for a variety of search terms. And I unbashedly hasten to say, this only works if your spiritual program includes the right mentorjesus holding the world

Post. Get one post on your blog. after prayer and planning your day, that’s the most important thing you can do. Take a week getting it ready, if needed. If you will post one article per week, minimum, you will get more traffic and reader engagement than you could ever hope for.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail

A Lesson in Fear and Flying.

 

In an earlier post I talked about “the flying dreams” that we all have as children.

A lot of people I have shared my dream with about flying, have told me that they also would

flap their arms

think “if I just believe it, it will happen”

focus really hard on flying

vividly remember, in the dream, that they had dreamed it before, and

they would think “this time will be different”.

So. What I want to know is…why isn’t anyone flying? Okay though, seriously. What I really want to know is, why is it that some of these very same people only have faith in their dreams? A lot of these dreamers are quite “practical” and have a very hard time imagining themselves in a better place, much less believing anything great will ever happen,

And yet amazingly, they dream (as in, reallly dream) about flying.

(has anyone you know ever NOT had a flying dream….?)

So. Again. What i really want to know is…why does this iconic flying dream transcend all personality types, all income levels and all races? Why do people from all cultures, of all ages, and all genders have the very same dream?

And, more curiously….why do they stop believing for the impossible?

(theories? comments?…

What you already have

Good Morning! I hope you are doing well, and I mean, really really well.
Would love to share with you a thought that kept coming to me this morning.
As I was awakening, I kept thinking of Eve biting the apple and I asked myself; how could Eve ever have been dissatisfied with what she had? She had everything, except that one thing.
You would think she would have looked around the garden and seen what she did have, instead of focusing on  what she didn’t have.
“But really” I asked myself; “haven’t I ever done that”?
As I began to look about the room in the pre-dawn light, I began to see all kinds of potential; musical instruments I have not yet taught myself to play; hobbies and activities I planned to do some day; projects I didn’t yet have time to begin.
So many people want more, more, more, but with many of us, what we have is not fully appreciated.
Today I encourage you to look around you at the stuff, the giftings and the potential that you have already.
When I was very poor, I went for a walk one day, and I asked myself, “How can I make money with nothing?” Then, I noticed some wildgrasses by the highway. I scooped them up, artfully tied them together, and made a natural wreath. Then I sold several of my wreaths from the roadside, from my car.
All it took was seeing the potential of what I already have.
Like Eve, wouldn’t it be interesting to think that we already have everything we need?  You may not think you do, but I strongly encourage you to take some inventory today of what you already have, and to ponder it’s potential.
Just something to think about.

Brain Blobs and your Blog

Medical science has shown that negativc-brain_afronte thinking people actually have a dark cloud in their brain, and it grows when they continue to think negatively.

It’s almost like a downhill ride that keeps getting faster and faster

because the more they think negatively, the more the dark cloud grows. And the more it grows, the more they think negatively.

The interesting thing is, most people don’t even know that they are doing this.

I must confess, as an analyst in SEO and as a strategist, it can become very easy to develop a cynical mindset…if you are an internet marketer, an affiliate marketer, or a marketer of any kind, then you know how difficult it can be to remain positive instead of always gravitating toward the negative.

Everything on the internet seems to be changing constantly. So many times, when we try something new, it’s hard

to believe for success knowing that what you build today might seem obsolete tomorrow.

It isn’t easy staying positive sometimes. That’s why I created “the Inspiration Station”.

It’s a weekly series of inspirational bites, similar to Motivational Monday, but from a purely inspirational standpoint. In other words, the focus isn’t just on staying motivated in business, but also in your every day life.

Pitch free, agenda free, just pure inspiration.
