“Targeted Focus” Frees Your Mind Which Gets You Results

May 9th, 2008

HAVE YOU been suffering from any of the following? ...or anything similar to them?

-You have so many ideas and thoughts that you don’t get anything really done

-You are almost always feeling frustrated and behind in your work

-You feel that you should be “card-carrying member” of the Round To It club.

-You have started so many projects (which are just piling up in your mind) that you don’t know which one to start work on

-Your mind’s RAM is so congested that it cannot function; it just grinds to a halt

-You are always asking yourself, “Where has time gone?   I haven’t accomplished even half of what I meant to.”

-Your internal strife just grows and grows because your good intentions are just …good intentions.

OK, you get the drift.  I know you have said, “Yes, I have those issues.”  We have all been there.  And most of us are continuing to suffer from too many ideas and projects with too little time to get them done… even the major ones that impact lifestyle and income.

I am making this post because I have found something that has and is really helping me to focus my mind so that I can become clear on what I need to do, and more importantly, what and how to get it done in a logical progression.  Actually, what I have found was actually pointed out to me by a friend of mine, Bob Jenkins, aka BobTheTeacher.  It is a simple mind-mapping program called, FreeMind, that you can download on the internet at no charge.  (That’s zero, nothing, nil, nada.)  However, even though the program costs nothing, it is not user friendly (or at least there are not any good tutorials).

My friend Bob realized that even though FreeMind was an outstanding program for focusing your mind and getting things done that most folks would have problems learning how to use the program and all its outstanding features.  So, Bob took it upon himself to develop a step-wise two-part video tutorial to show how simple the program really is to use and how to use it for most any activity or goal (business projects, household “to-do-lists”, homework, writing a book, you name it…).

So…, if you want to get results, clear the cobwebs from your mind, and free up your time, go get FreeMind and Bob’s video tutorial instruction.  I personally call it Targeted Free Mind where you Turn Tangents Into Success.

To your Success!

Take Control of YOU! You Are The Solution To Paying Your Taxes and A Whole Lot More…

March 2nd, 2008

Think about it.  I know I certainly did some soul-searching when I read the following in the Birmingham News this morning:

“Taxes Expected To Rise with National Debt, Aging”

- If you’re grumbling. about the size of your tax bill this year, brace yourself.  Many financial advisers predict that tax rates are going to rise to cover the escalating. burden of an aging population and the federal debt. By KATHERINE REYNOLDS LEWIS Newhouse News Service WASHINGTON

This was the headline and the article’s lead-in first paragraph.  Obviously, it is an attention getter.   Some additional eye-openers in Ms. Lewis’ article include:

Each American’s share of the federal government’s unfunded obligations amounts to $175,000 - comparable to a home mortgage with no collateral, said Stuart Butler, a vice president at the Heritage Foundation.”

“To cover the gap between expected revenue and the cost of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security benefits through 2Q50, income tax rates would have to almost double, according to a July 2007 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office.”

“Of course, the government probably would reduce promised benefits and increase payroll taxes rather than solely boosting the income tax. Still, it seems likely many Americans eventually will refer to the current income tax structure as “the good old days.” And who exactly :   would pay higher taxes?”

Ms. Lewis later suggested a partial solution…

“Take a long-term approach and save aggressively.”   She clarified that by referencing…

“People need to set aside as much as they, can,”  said Tom Papanikolaou, chief operating officer of Pension Builders and Consultants in Cleveland.

Yes, taking a long-term approach and saving aggressively makes sense.   The issue is that most of us don’t have extra funds to set aside to pay our normal daily expenses, much less, pay a burdening tax bill.  Duhhh….

So, now what?  To me, the answer is as simple as going to your nearest mirror and looking into it.   There you see the answer…it’s YOU.   You are the answer to taking a long-term approach and saving aggressively.  The mirror shows you the solution each and every day!

Of course, the mirror cannot hand over financial well-being,  however,  it does show you where to find the solution.  The solution is between your ears!  It is your skills, your experience(s), your hobbies, your knowledge, your ideas that you possess.   All you need to do is to share those possessions with others and your financial concerns will end,  ..and a new future will begin.

It is up to you to Take control of YOU!

How Can Your Ideas Be Turned Into A Supplemental Income?

What Would You Do With Your First $Million?

February 25th, 2008

I got to thinking about this after having read an article in this past week’s Parade Magazine (www.parade.com).  The article was titled What I Did With My First Million by Cindy Adams.  It dealt with a group of celebrities and what they did with their 1st million dollars.  All of them seemed to go out and buy something a little extravagant (except maybe Matt Lauer who was concerned about ‘job security’)*, but within their new means.

*  Maybe you can relate with this?.  Go to www.RetiredBeforeYourTime.com

Anyway, this article got me thinking about what I would do with a major jump in my annual income to those levels.   In my case, the first major thing that I would do (after taking my wife out on a much deserved, long overdue vacation trip) would be to “pay off most of my credit card debts down to near $0.00“.  I would do this as most credit card debt (or other revolving debt) is the biggest drain on most everyone’s everyday financial well-being.

Getting rid of this money dump is a direct pay increase to you.  Paying off the debt will free up your mind, free up your emotions, and will change your entire perspective of life.  Just think about it for a moment.

If you had no income draining debts how much money would you have to do the things you have always dreamed about?

Would that amount of money be an extra $2,000/month?,  Maybe $3,000?,  or maybe $4,000 per month? (Wow! That’s $48,000 per year.)

Wouldn’t it be great to have this kind of additional income coming into your household? 

Do It Right The 1st Time!  Get Rid of Credit Card Debt!

Oh, this sounds great, but how do you get the money to pay off the debts?  Well, I think the best way is to use your ideas, skills, experiences and knowledge to create a supplemental income.  Yes, that it includes YOU!  Go find out for yourself, go and visit www.MakeMoneyWithWhatYouKnow.com and get your free report that outlines why everyone is an expert at something.  Go now and Get Rid of Credit Card Debt!

Follow The Business Building Guru, Jay Abraham, And Win

February 11th, 2008

I started taking Jay’s 13-month program in November 2007 and I have found that his program and he himself are the real deal.  Jay with his partner, Spike Humer, really know how to get a person into the right mindset by drawing out your insights from other peoples concepts, ideas, and life perspectives.  Jay and Spike also share their viewpoints and insights, and in the process of sharing them based on real life experience, that you will find that your perspective on life and business begins a transition process.

The transition is remarkable.  You begin by being overwhelmed by the vast number of learnings and insights that are brought to you.  They are so many and so mind-expanding that you…well, you just absorb them.  In doing so, you find you begin to transition from a casual observer to a critical observer of the people and things around you.   As you become this more insightful observer you also become more empathetic.  You find that you can relate with other peoples’ issues and problems so much more definitively.  It is at this point that you will be able to make an “empathetic connection” with others which will allow you to find and see business and fulfillment opportunities almost everywhere.  It is at this point that you can see yourself and your business in a new mode, a mode of operation that is off and running.

If you are interested in escalating your business, I highly recommend you check out Jay’s Program.

How Do You Turn Your Products and Ideas Into Business Results?

January 19th, 2008

It’s really quite simple. You find a system that does it for you.

Or …you find one that makes it so easy that you can do it yourself. The system I am recommending here is one that allows you to be able to develop your ideas:

When you want to..
Where you want to…
and How you want to…

at a pace that works for you.

I will say again that being able to develop your products, services and ideas into dollars is quite simple. It is not like love-making, even though, many would think it pretty darn close in a relative sense. You will love how easy it is to do. I know this to be true as Marlon Sanders has put this system together for you.

If you know Marlon? then you know being able to turn your products, services, or your ideas into dollars is for real. If you haven’t had the benefit of knowing Marlon, then you will have an opportunity to do so in just a minute or two by visiting with him where it’s ever so easy to do so. Really,  its so easy that if the proverbial caveman was real and existed today, he could turn his ideas into dollars.

Find out how easy it really is to turn your products, services and ideas into cash money with Marlon’s Info Products Dashboard. It’s ever so easy!

Do it right and have your ideas become your future.

Does Everyone Want to Help You Build Your Business Online?

January 12th, 2008

You will find someone launching a new program to help you about everyday it seems.

There are so many internet marketing gurus trying to help you get a business started with their help, it is overwhelming. For most of us it is extremely confusing just trying to decide which one to use.

Do you use?…

1. Nitro Marketing’s “Nitro Blueprint” system, or

2. Armand Morin’s “Internet Marketing Explained” system, or

3. Russell Brunson’s “DotCom Secrets” system, or

4. Tellman Knudson’s “List Building Club“, or

5. Other Internet Marketing Gurus’ systems from
(i.e. Shawn Casey, Joshua Shafran, Marlon Sanders, Mark Joyner, and more)

or maybe some of the newer up-and-coming, but lesser known super stars…
for example:

6. Bob Jenkin’s “Success Workshop“, or

7. Sterling Valentine’s “‘PowerMonth‘ and more”,

8. or ???

The decision is tough because each of these (and many others that I have not mentioned) are first rate. To succeed, all that is required is to follow their guidance and do what they instruct you to do.

FOLLOW and DO = SUCCESS!

OK, I know you want to ask what I would do; right?

If I were asked to make a suggestion based on my personal experience about starting an online business, I would suggest combining one of the programs from the first group (1-5) and include one of the highly interactive programs from the later group (6-7).

This combination would save you time and money to begin with and…the combination would allow you to learn the necessary components of an online business while having a sounding board and peer group to answer questions you have while keeping you motivated and focused.

Which of the above systems/programs, or other, would you suggest to help someone start an online business?

Get Your Name Out There: Promote and Brand Yourself and Your Business

January 5th, 2008

They Are The Initial Keys To Business Marketing And Winning

In today’s fast-paced, get-it-now and can’t wait society, we must be ahead and stay ahead of our competition to have a reasonable chance to market our goods and services. It’s analogous to the old saying, “The Early Bird Gets The Worm”.

No matter how good your product or service might be, if you don’t promote your product and let people know about it ….well, the only thing you have is a great product or service doing nothing for no one. And of course you know who the real loser is in a scenario like this.

So, if you know who your market is and where it is located you must let your market know “who you are”, “what you provide”, and “what you can do for them”. Your business, or any business, the number one function of your business is marketing, marketing, and marketing.

If marketing has to be the number one function of your business, then…

How do you get out in the middle of your crowd so that they run all over you?

Please reply with your answer.

Are You Ready To Do It Right For 2008?

January 2nd, 2008

Have You Taken Time To Set Your Goals And Plans for the New Year?

I would hope that you have, but if you haven’t, this first week is a good time to take care of that important need.

First thing- Get Rid Of Clutter!
(Anything piled up or just sitting around that is in your line of sight is one of the most distracting energy drains you can have). Get rid of the crap now! …as if your life depended on it.

With your work area and living area and more importantly “your mind cleared” of clutter you can now proceed to your second critical need…

Second thing- Set Your Goals!

One good way to do this is to reflect back on 2007 and list out the goods, and the not so goods for the year. From that, based on whatever your lifelong goal happens to be, (you do have a lifelong goal don’t you?) write out a listing of your 2008 goals. Ensure that they are realistic (can be accomplished in 12 months), but challenging.

Now, that you have your list of realistic, but challenging goals, prioritize them from highest to those of lesser importance (you know, the ones you would like to accomplish, but are not critical to your lifelong goal or vision).

Having prioritized your list, pick your #1 Must Accomplish Goal as related to your lifelong goal or vision. That it! Your goal-setting is complete.

Should you have any other goals, add only two (2) additional goals max. (i.e. 3 goals is the absolutely max. for anyone who really expects to succeed.) [If you have issues with 3 max. then delegate those other goals and let someone else accomplish them for you…or just forget about them until and only after you have completed your Must Accomplish Goal(s).]

Third thing- Backward Plan Your Action Steps Into A Workable Plan! In other words, develop your milestones that will allow you to stepwise reach and accomplish your goal. One of the easiest ways to do this is to start with your goal(s) and work backwards. Determine what would be the next to last step you need to accomplish to achieve the next step, and continue to do this again and again until you reach now.

Once you have done this…. you have your plan.

Last thing- Take Action On Your Plan!

Do it! and Do it! and continue to Do It! ..until you have done it.
