Motivational Seminars And You

Seminars are life changing event for the people who go with no expectations. Keeping an open mind is the key to unlocking the mysteries that keep you from moving forward. They help you unravel the patterns and break down walls you have put in place to avoid dealing with change.

These seminars designed to motivate you to think differently. They help you pin point how you fit in to your life story and show you that you have accountability for the choice and actions you take. Looking in from the outside they see that your circumstance. They show you that it is your perception of the role you play. They show you how to see things differently. What if the way you think has to do with the way you seen your situation and just by changing your thoughts you can see a different outcome? We carry baggage that we would like to forget and we tell ourselves that we have moved on but have we? They give you the tools to change your thinking, give up the baggage and rewrite the future.

If you talk to people who have been to these seminars that will tell you that it was great, life changing and they wish they would have gone sooner. They say the speaker seemed to talk directly to them, that’s because we are the same deep down. We have the same insecurities and we all have felt like a victim at one time in our lives. We walk around with defensive attitude to cover our vulnerability.

They help us to free ourselves from the pressure we put on ourselves by showing us who we really.They do this by bring out how truly capable we are and give us the confidence to make choices without fear or regret.They take the focus off how we feel and what we have to do to change it.

Why these seminars are not part of our childhood education is beyond me. If great motivators like Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy were to bring their talents to the class room we might see grow ups needing less therapy. There are seminars near you they may not have Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy, but they are helpful and designed with the same concepts and teachings that the masters use.

As you think about whether a motivational seminar is right for you, ask yourself this: Am I stuck in a rut unable to see the way out? Do I get tired of hearing my story played over and over in my head like a bad movie? Are my friends tired of hearing my whining? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may consider going to one of these seminars. It may just change who you think you are and open options that you did not know were possible.Think about how your business will benefit after you look and think with accountability in your role as a business owner.

Leadership Starts With You

Leaderships start with knowing wanting something is not the same as needing it as. Needs are food water and shelter. Wanting is an emotional reaction to pleasure. So what does this have to do with our identity?

Every person has needs and wants. Parents step into the roll of leadership they give their children what they need and what they want to support them. We are exposed early to outside influences that affect the way we think. It is the media and judgment from our peers that cause us pain or pleasure. This may trigger confusion on the difference between what our needs and wants really are.

Seeing, hearing, smelling and touching are the tool we inherited to survive. Listening with your senses started at birth, how we react to what we need as babies is natural. As we grow and understand how to get what we want, our parents place boundaries on us and introduced us to discipline. A child learns early that they are at the mercy of their family and will learn how to respond to get what they need. If you’re told repeatedly that you need and deserve something even when you don’t, you won’t understand the difference between a need and a want. Disciplined is setting the boundaries.

Discipline is training a state of improved behavior, improvement of physical power and self-control. Our brain is the key to getting what we need and want. If you are a victim to your emotions then you need to discipline your brain to act instead of reacting to the emotional triggers around you. You have to practice everything so that your brain knows what it has to do on its own. Just knowing you have to do something, is not enough.

Example: I am over weight because I have bad eating habits, there for I have to practice good eating habits to change the bad habits. I have a bad temper. No you have a bad habit triggered from an emotional behavior. You will only have self-control when you practice it. He is the best player on the team because he practiced until he could act with complete control over the game he plays.

Your brain will tell your body what to do when you practice it. If you don’t replace bad habits with good habits they will control your life. A computer is like a brain, unfortunately our brain doesn’t have the software to improve its performance. You are not what anyone tells you, you are what you tell yourself. All you have to do is listen to what you are telling your brain to do. If you tell yourself you don’t know how to something, you won’t. Your brain will not know what to do until you educate it to do so. Discipline yourself by practicing what you have to do and then act on your training.

Just because you put the uniform on doesn’t mean that your brain will tell your body how to play the game. You have to do your home work! You have to practice, know the game inside and out, then and only then you are ready to play in the game.

People fall victim to the world around them. You want to stand out in the crowd you have to practice discipline. In order to practice you need to find the training. You are not a player until you get in the game.

It is your life and your choices that define who you are, be accountable to yourself. Practice it, so you can stand out as a person of excellence. If you want what I have and are not willing to work for it, you can’t have it. Don’t throw a fit to get where you want to be. I had to change the way what I was doing to get what I need to live the way I want. I study it and practice it until I gained the skills to act without emotion when making decisions. , standout and be the example. People will follow your lead.

Training Is Self Discipline

Sometimes I think people buy training material and set it on the shelf and hope it will jump into their brain. Well good luck with that. Give yourself permission to do what you have to. No one can change your situation, but you.

The person that is actively seeking to improve their life will do what needs done. Make up your mind to travel a path of self-control. Start today by picking a challenge. See what needs done, do it and stay consistent. By not dwelling on your problems your train your mind up to change yourself and the problems will take care of themselves.

I want you to feel good about yourself. So every day when you open your eyes, stretch, take in a deep breath and say to yourself. Good morning! I am grateful for everything in my life. As an adult, I have the choice to do what’s right.

You will start to see small changes in your life. Work on self-discipline by practice decision-making, no matter how small think before you act. One part of discipline is to developing a good habit in place of a bad habit with your focus on the good habit. I can say I will do something, but when I don’t I lose my credible to myself. I can buy it and put it on a shelf, but that is not going to make me accountable for the choice I made when I bought it. You are not going to get there without doing your home work.

After a while it will become part of your character. So here is a challenge find something that you want and get it. The only thing is before you get it you have to go through the hoops to get it. Every day you will have to do the same thing you did the day before to get it. You have choices not obstacles. Every time we use your gift to make a choice we are saying that we are important and a free thinking adult.

If there is some training you have put off, do it. That’s easier said than done, right. What you don’t understand is it is just that easy. It starts with you making a choice. You may think that you are a positive person, I did. Then when I started to work on my mind-set I found that I wasn’t as positive as I thought. Turns out now that I look back I am more of an optimist. I knew everything would work out if I just could get…. My reality is I have everything I need. I have to make the choice to do it. Buying more training is not going to get business or my weight under control if I don’t do anything about it.

It’s hard to think about doing twenty articles in twenty days if you dwell on it. Plan on working every day until you have the changes in your life. Make a choice to keeping focus on today and write something positive, that will help someone. Adding a creative outlet is something I strongly recommend. I listen to the training and share what I get out of it. Because, if I need it than someone else might need it too. Pass it on, just be yourself.

As you work on your creativity, you are all so working in a positive mind-set. You are making choices that will feed your soul and change your thinking. You are actively doing what you need and not what others tell you that you need. Your mind-set will only change if you put in the time. The key is you and if you hold yourself accountable for our choices. You are on a path to change yourself. No one is going to give you a sticker for buying it and putting it on the shelf. You will change if you do what you have to. Everything worth getting takes work. That is why you see the people you admire because they did the work to get there. Changing yourself begins as you see every small decision as a victory to yourself.

Have Fun With It

Ready for some fun? Recruitment meetings are a part of the business. Every time we enter a room we are sharing an opportunity that will change someone’s life.

The fun starts as the doors open, you can feel the excitement in the air as the leaders enter the room. The music tonight is the sounds of happy people talking about what is going to take place. You look around the room you see your team members, newly qualified prospects, friends and even family. Tonight is about catching up with the people on your team, brain storming your next move, announcing a new product launch and handing out the awards. All is good and ready to begin…

The people you bring to these events have gone through your screening process and are open to the opportunity or at the very least curious to see if they are ready to make that commit. Now is the time that they can see you at your best and having fun. Show off your team to your prospects so they will know who they can always count on to share their experience and knowledge and they will appreciate the acknowledgement.

They love to show off their skills to. Fellowship is what brings us together we are a group of ordinary people who live fantastic lives. Your people need to feel like they are welcome even if they don’t sign on the bottom line. They have the character that you admire in a person that is why you invited them.

Leave them with an example that will stick with them. Have fun and to tell you the truth I don’t care if you take advantage of the opportunity or not, I just got to spend some time with people I enjoy. Not everyone is ready for an opportunity. I have brought you here it’s up to you to want it. Networking is nothing more than getting together with others, doing a little work and having fun while you’re doing it.

Every person in the room is there to support each other effort and take advantage of the opportunity to show off what they did and how they did it and to see if you want to do it to. When you bring your people to the meeting they can get answer on the spot from your team members that have been around this business longer than you.

They are more than willing to share their stories, so introduce the people you brought to you team, make them feel at home. After the meeting take your people for coffee or a drink. Talk about the meeting and find out what they thought.

Tell them why you are so excited about the changes in your life and how much time and fun you have. Everything you talk about is possible because of the decision you made to become an entrepreneur. We are the living example of what could be possible when you decide you what to work for yourself.

 

Creating A Logo Or Collage With Microsoft

I created a logo for my site and so many of you have commented on my site and how I designed it. So I thought I would share what I did to create the photos and the projects that I create using my own photos and Microsoft. As you go through these steps experiment with the tools that are available to you as long as you save it in a different file you can have fun save your project. After you find what you’re looking for you can upload it to your theme as a background or as header. Have fun and create something wonderful for yourself.

Step One: Creating from photos

Find a picture or group of photos that you feel represent you and your business. You can change the colors and composition of your picture when you open it with Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Here you can edit you photos by cropping, change or enhance the color and contrast. It will also resize to fit your needs. When you have your picture the way you want it save as a new document and label it with the title of the document.

Using my photo to create a jpeg interchangeable document:

Step Two:

I have taken my original photo and made these changes using Microsoft office picture manager. First I cropped it then I took all the color out making it black and white.

I sharpened the contrast by moving the scales to suit.

Used the color scale to add the color blue. I have manipulated the photo to suit. Experiment until you find what you want.

 Save as with a title you will remember. Close all files remember don’t save changes to your original photo.

Step Three:

Open Microsoft office power point, go to page layout and pick the blank document. Pick the photo option. When the browsers opens your files up look for the picture you just created. Insert your picture. As you look over your photo you can decide where you want to add text to your photo. Click on text box. Used the draw the text box option, start typing what you want people to know. Keep it simple you can add as many boxes as you want. Be mindful of the color you pick for your text and think about adding color to fill the background of the box. You can even set an outline color to the box drawing a person’s eye to that part of your composition. If you don’t want color 0r texture click no fill. Now if you like what you see hit save. You have just created a jpeg picture that you can upload to your theme.

How to build Maximum Leverage in A Marketing Business

So how do I use leverage in my marketing business? What are the steps I need to know? These are questions that every business has whether your marketing business is on-line or in your neighborhood. People are people and they want something for the effort they put in to a business. When the steps are easy to follow they become second nature. Leverage happens when you learn a few simple steps and train others to do the same. You are training a marketing team with the same goals.

Everyone will benefit from a marketing team. You are looking for people who want the same goal as you and are willing to invest themselves in a team of people that are working towards the same goal. They can see how simple things can be coped and are excited to get started.

Build Maximum Leverage

  • Set a common goal, people will to work towards a positive outcome.
  • The more people you involved in the process the better your chances are to succeed.
  • People who are financial evolved have more to gain as the business succeeds.
  • Have a formula and training program that is easy to follow.
  • Keep things simple.

Leverage is the ability to get people together to work for a common goal. When several people work together towards a common goal, it becomes easier than with one person. Just think how your business would benefit from having two of you, twice the effort would mean you can get thing accomplished quicker. What would happen if you had a five of you working instead of two? If the tasks a hand took ten hours five of you would only work for two hours!

The more people you recruit and train to do what you do the less you and your team work to maximize your efforts. Sounds easy and it will be if you keep it simple. Have a step by step process for all your recruits to follow. A basic script that is easy to follow and will get results fast. You will gain the trust of your team if your focus is on everyone succeeding in the outcome.

Companies now are making it easier for you to leverage the training, auto responders and list builders. They want you to succeed. Remember that marketing relationships thrive only when both sides are gaining value. Working towards a common goal is the basis for developing a team. Now think of how everyone benefits when that team is duplicated again and again. Five team members creating five teams will maximize the amount of people who will profit for a minimum of effort changing their lives and the lives of their family.

Once you get the formula down you can create as many teams and transform as many lives as you would like. Growing and sharing is part of the leverage that drives people to give more value to the team. Momentum builds in the teams as they work towards the same goal. Your team is set up goals for their own teams and so on.

You are building a work force of independent business owners that know how to work the system. Now your team will have with the confidence to take charge of their own team of people, you are helping people become independent by giving them the means and the tools to change the outcome of their lives. These people are putting their trust in you and what you have is an easy to follow system in a company that everyone can copy and succeed.

Team Opportunity Are Creating Marketing Leaders

Team opportunity does not come knocking, you have to go out and find it. You wouldn’t eat something new without smelling it first. Get ready for an experience that will change your life for the better. You must take on this task as if your life depends on it and it does.

You are the leader of your team. When you start your business you will want a team that reminds you everyday why you are doing what you are doing! This is not a game or a dress rehearsal. You must work at this like you have never worked before. You will have times of doubt and frustration just like the rest of the team. Everyone has a journey that they go through as they are working towards the success. This is more than a job you have decided to live different the 90% of the world.

That means that you are communicating with others, yes talking. More important that you are listening to the other person and engage in what they have to say.. Showing an interest in what their concerns are and if they are qualified to start a business based on team work. Listen to them maybe they are only interested in making extra money and are will to work to get it.

Communication is 99% of this part of your business and that is because if you don’t listen and pay attention you will not learn what we are trying to teach. You will not be able to teach team building to someone else. The pay off comes when you are living the vision and realizing that your hard work pays more than the lottery will ever pay you. The best way to expand your business is to expand your team.

Set a time that you are reading and learning something new about your business. Apply your training and work on developing a well train your team. Your encouragement and guidance will go a lot farther as your team feels what they are doing is appreciated. The small things mean that you recognize builds the confidence in your team that their efforts will lead them to success.

The role you play in your team is to guide, encourage, praise, and develop a relationship of mutual respect and prosperity. So as you can see if you have developed a great team you will have earned a great team and there is enough wealth to duplicate over and over again.

You are not the person who plays the lottery, you would never trust in the odds that you will win this in your life time. Why would you believe that you could win with those odds? Yet you are the person to pick from the lottery of opportunity to make your vision a reality. Now you are a member of the 10 % that takes control of their life.

Don’t Feel Like Working?

Working hard can take a toll. Everybody needs time to regroup and take an account of where their business and their life is going. By now you know more about what I do and why I do it. I believe in the power you get from owning your own business. My time is the one thing that I can’t get back, making it more valuable than anything I have. I won’t take my time for granted.

There are days when I don’t want to get up and do what it takes to keep all the balls in the air. I am driven so I get up every day and do what I have to do to keep going. I am glad that there are people out there like me that I can learn from. I wish I could learn these things faster but my brain is still trying to keep up with using technology. Then there’s the learning curb I have, some areas more than others.

As an artist I have been successful in what I want to accomplish. As a marketer I am starting to get it and I am willing to share. I am not buying any more training until I get down what I have purchased. Step by step I will get there and my benefits will all ways pay off in one way or another.

This day that I don’t feel like working is not the first or the last. My rewards will come in knowing that I can and do what I want with my time. I have stuck with goals and went through the training and now I know it and not one person can take it away. I will apply it and accomplish my goals.

What are the things holding you back? We all have an excuse and my biggest is; is this really working why you don’t just give up. You know that your family and friends would be happier if you just stopped. You will never accomplish your dream if you can’t understand the training and how to apply it to what needs to be done. It’s hard work; I don’t want to bug anyone to join companies that I think are great because I know how hard it is to get started. I only want to show them the opportunity to see if it’s a good fit for them. These companies are fun exciting and can take your education on the market place to a whole new level. Most of the ones I have researched connect you to a top trainer, someone like Perry Marshal, or John Terhune .

Reality is that we all learn and process information differently. What I know is that someone of us that are expose to systems that have experts that are working in this field and making 6 figures plus. With a little extra effort you can do anything you want to do. The bottom line is you’re just getting started and see where it takes you. Do you really want to master what you are studying or are you going to play with it and then put it down like a child waiting to be told what to do. Everybody run their business different and everybody that wants to succeed; it will succeed if you apply what you know and what you are constantly learning.

Today I don’t feel like working. Now that I have started I feel energized to go and put my training to work for me. Don’t give in to negative thoughts and excuses. You are in the driver’s seat, take your business out and ride it for what it’s worth. We are not all in this business for the same reason. We don’t want someone else to tell us how we should use our time. So get to work!

This is Seo

What is SEO and how can it help my business? Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a web site or a web page in search engines naturally by using keywords that are woven into your text. It is traffic plus conversion equals successful marketing in cyberspace. The more traffic you can get the more leads you can generate.

Hopeful you are using word press where it is easy to install in the plug-ins section. You just need to click add new under the plug-ins section and type in All in one SEO pack and choose install. Now when you write a post you can fill out the fields in this section with the post title, description and keywords. When you publish your post you will direct the cyber spiders to find you and raise the ranking on the page niche that you are aiming for.

There are two sides to google the left is free traffic the right is paid advertising. Free traffic equals free leads. So when your looking at the search results take a close look at the sites that are at the upper left. As you can see the top is where you want to be.

This is a  big part of branding you and whatever your niche (your product) is .When you google a topic in your niche it will show you the top results. How do keywords work to get you to the top?  You can get there by the search engine spiders finding the keywords you place in and on your site. These words will be recognized by google then ranked for page placement. You are going for the top left ranking on the page(niche) that you want to be ranked on. This will lead to more traffic and with more traffic there will be more leads. This should places you in high standing in your niche. Which will lead to more sales.

Keyword and how you use them for ranking.

  •  Information (People that are looking to start a business are looking for the easiest way to get started and they may want to join you.)
  • The Researcher (The targeting of your customer is often people are just not happy and are looking for something new.)
  • The Shopper (People that are already your customer and are looking for similar solutions.)
  • The Buyer (Looking for you what you have.)

Keywords are great and can launch you to the highest position that google has for your niche. Knowing what your ranking is essential for marketing. Do not over use these words you will get slapped by google and they will shut you down.

You should have full control of your website. Start adding content to your website. This is where copy writing comes to play you need to keep things simple and the placement of keywords can raise your ranks without spamming. Remember that the magic is to make all things work together in a smooth format on your site.

Now you can target the niche with the keywords that buzz around your product. When your primary company is launching a new product is when you need to strike your campaign to increase the traffic. People are looking for the product or looking to start in the business of promoting this product and are is search for you to lead them to success.

Look for keywords that support your niche and you can easily sprinkle them through your content. As you are placing these word you can link them to content on your other pages or sites. The more you attract the spiders to and from your site and your content, the more google sees your site as most relevant in your targeted niche.

As you can see all these words can be used in the website,on the website and in all related products and how to tutorials.

Now that you know how it works you can have fun coloring your website, post and pages with keywords.

Are Your Comments Welcome?

Do you have something substantial to say or are you spamming the blogs that welcome your comments? It takes time to build a site that people take the time to read. Why your comments are never posted on the site? Hmmmmmm
you may not have anything I think others want to read when they come to my site. Some of us take great pride on sharing our tips and tricks if you post spam you should get slammed. This is not the way to get traffic to your business and I would never do business with you. Your first impression is something you cannot do over. Be proud of your opinion have the courage to stand behind you comments. Dropping a link is one thing taking advantage is another. Don’t spam!

The world doesn’t need it and those that read the comments do want it.  Time is one thing we don’t get back and you rob everyone when you leave spam. Like commercials that break in on the best parts of the movie we don’t want it. So again Thanks, to those of you that take the time to read the post and comment seriously about what you read.
We want to be validated that what we do is making a difference.
If you have nothing to say, stay away from the comment tab.

Next time open a discussion on the topic or leave a complement. Mom all ways told me if you don’t have something good to say leave it alone. I read all my comments and find it interesting that people want to use my site as their advertisement instead of asking for help to set up their own site. Marketers that do credible work are all ways will to share their knowledge with you. It is not that hard to get started and as you learn you will find more than just advice you may find a friend.

I hope you comment on this post, I do it in good faith and would really like to know what you think. D
