The #1 Secret to Getting Your Ass Motivated to Take Action NOW

After 9 months of failing to even attempt a goal that I was after I realized I had to make a change in my level of motivation.  Up to that point I had been using pleasurable rewards for achieving the goal.  I would say when I accomplish this then I will buy that for myself.  The goal really wasn’t anything even that far fetched.  It was really just a test of will and to do something I was extremely uncomfortable doing.  I kept putting it off.

Till finally one day I looked at myself in the mirror and said if I don’t accomplish this task today then I will not pick up my daughter from daycare.  I am a single parent and so that would have broken my little girls heart. To not have her father pick her up from school.  The trust bond would have been broken between us.  And I meant it when I said it to myself in the mirror.  Within one hour I completed the task I had been putting off for over 9 months and it’s not because I was going to receive a reward, but rather that I was motivated by fear…fear and pain.  Fear and pain are two of the greatest motivators of all.  And

I urge you that if there is a task that you want to accomplish and you keep putting it off because the reward of achieving it is not motivating enough then I dare you to switch it around and make it so that if you don’t accomplish the task then you will suffer somehow.  But please be within reason, you don’t want to make the task so unrealistic like “if I don’t make a million dollars by the end of the week then I’m going to jump off a bridge” then that is just setting yourself up for failure.  I recommend to set the goal/task as something that you can definitely achieve, then add the fear incentive.

Best Apple Cider Vinegar Shot Concoction for Intense Energy

I’ve been experimenting with Apple Cider Vinegar for about a year now and have come up with a pretty bad a$$ combination for an intense afternoon energy shot.  I used to drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day; however, this shot has replaced my need for a second cup of coffee.

Mix the following into a shot glass:

  • Dash of pink Himalayan Sea
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • Dash of Ginger Root Powder
  • Dash of Turmeric Powder
  • Then fill up shot glass with Apple Cider Vinegar

Yes, it is kind of nasty and takes some getting used to.  I recommend doing this right after you get done eating lunch, as I’ve found it kind of gives me an upset stomach on an empty stomach.  Believe it or not, you do get used to it, and eventually you’ll be able to down this shot no problem.   Bon appetite 😉

Turn Your Mess Into A Message

It’s easy to feel that we are unique in our lives when we go through a traumatic situation.  We can feel that have been cursed, unlucky, and that people that are successful have been lucky or favorable.  There is nothing more far from the truth.  I love to read biographies of great people throughout history and the one thing I always find in common with people that have achieved greatness is that they went through extraordinary amounts of pain, suffering, and failure before they finally broke through.

Realize that if you have had tremendous challenges in your life that this is just a chapter in your book, but does not have to be the conclusion of the story.  You hold the pen in writing the story of your life from this moment forward.  I believe that one of the reasons we go through difficult situations is so that we can show others that you can go through that same type of challenge and still make it through.

Enjoy this inspirational speech and focus on turning whatever mess you are going through into a message that can positively impact others!

Stop Being a “Yes-aholic”

I feel so many of us go through life saying “yes” to everything.  We over obligate ourselves to situations that we don’t really want to do, just out of being a nice.  Or more likely that we are actually afraid to say “no”.  It’s okay to say NO.  You don’t have to say yes to every single invitation to go out to lunch, to volunteer, to help someone out, to loan someone money, etc.  We end up being what I like to call a “yes-aholic”.  Sometimes we need to put our foot down.  I used to be a “yes-aholic” and I found myself with severe anxiety and a sense of always feeling overwhelmed.  I felt disorganized and chaotic in my life because I said yes to almost everything out of of an effort to please everyone.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to say yes.  Yes to situations and opportunities that you can commit to and feel comfortable with.  But I truly believe it’s more important to learn to say no.  Learn to say “no” to a person that is abusive, to the friends that want you to party when you know you shouldn’t, or to the parental figure that doesn’t agree with the career choice you want to make.

Then follow up with your other most powerful word is your “I will”.  That is your relentless commitment to a resolve.

Learn to use your two most powerful weapons: Your “No” and your “I Will”

10 Ways to Make $10K a Month

10 Ways to Make $10,000+ a Month!

Have you ever considered what it would feel like to make over $10,000 in one month?  In this life anything is possible.  Every single day new millionaires are created.  Millionaires that are people just like you and me.  I had my first $10k month when I was 16 years old and have made $10k months in several different industries now, so I thought I would share some ideas you can use to create $10k months.

Below I’m listing 10 different ways you can make over 10k a month in each category. 

Idea 1
You can create a membership site where members would pay you @29.99 Per
Month; doing so, you would only need a collective group of 333 subscribers to
make around 10k a month. This is a site that you would continuously add content
to, so that members can learn continuously with the information you are providing.
Example: A tennis website that gives lessons online which are uploaded once a
week and which charges members monthly to learn.
Idea 2
You can sell shirts using Tee Spring @20/shirt with a $10 profit each; 1000 shirts a
month will therefore make you around 10k a month. (Tee spring is a new way
shirts are being distributed. Some people have already made over a million dollars
through their method of selling shirts.)
Example: A fitness following of thousands who you can sell shirts to.
Idea 3
You can create an ebook or instructional book that sells for $39 per book. If you
sell 250 units per month, you will make 10k a month. (Keep in mind that this is an
automated system we are creating; they will be adding the ebook to their shopping
cart and buying it even while you sleep.)
Idea 4
You can start your own live webinar that sells at $47 per person; you would then
need to sell 212 spots to make 10k a month. (Tip: use software like
gotomeeting.com or join.me for screen sharing so that other people can view your
screen live once they register.)
Example: Hold a class on how to use Pinterest to grow your business. You could
share your screen and walk the class through how to do it.
Idea 5
You can create a 6-disc audio program (of Mp3s, for instance) and sell it at $197.
You would only need to sell 50 units per month to make 10k a month. This can be
done by recording your knowledge of a topic and converting it into an audio
source. You can then upload your content and send it over to disc.com where they
will print out and ship orders to your customers, doing so every time someone buys
your program. You can also have an mp3 file emailed out automatically when they
buy, so that the content can get to them immediately.
Example: You can record a 6-disc course on leadership.
Idea 6
You can start a 4-week live coaching program and sell it at $397. You would need
to sell 25 per month to make 10k a month. This coaching could be done over the
phone or via live screen sharing once a week for a month at a time.
Example: A 4-week course on how to be a great parent.
Idea 7
You can create a video course that is uploaded online, one which contains different
modules customers can view. These courses are pre-recorded. You can sell these
starting at $497. You would need to sell only 20 per month to make 10k a month.
Example: A course on how to fight chronic fatigue. Users would log in with the
user name and password provided to get access to video modules they can watch.
Idea 8
You can create promotional videos which you can advertise to get a following,
thereby growing a direct sales business. You would need to add a collective group
of 80 new business partners/customers a month for an entire year to make 10k a
month. This is based on the compensation of the average direct sales company.
This is a good strategy to employ when you don’t have your own products to
create.
Example: You market for a direct sales company that offers nutrition and sports
nutrition products. When you have a large list, it’s easy to enroll customers and
business partners.
Idea 9
You can start a seminar that sells at $1497 and sell 6 tickets a month to make 10k a
month. You can also give customers access to an online course you have as part of
the seminar they purchased a ticket to.
Example: You start a seminar on how to have a healthy relationship with your
spouse.
Idea 10
You can create a mastermind coaching program at 5k a student. You only need 2
students a month to make 10k. This would consist of six months to a year of hands on
coaching. This could also include access to all of your resources; resources that
they couldn’t get access to otherwise.
Example: You start a mastermind group teaching people how to write and publish
books. You then coach them for 6 months and help them write and publish their
first book and teach them to market it.

These are just a few ideas.  You can come up with your own,  but these are some pretty simple models to duplicate.
Rest assured, you will make mistakes in attempting any of these ideas, you will fail, but keep failing, and eventually you will succeed. And, if you are who I think you are – reading to this point in this post – you will learn a few things along the way. As long as you persevere – don’t quit – you will reach your goal. 

And it will be SWEET!

Enjoy the ride, my friend!

Laughter Yoga…How to Fake Laugh Yourself Into Being Happy!

Why so serious!!!???  I’ve always been obsessed with self-improvement and self-development, but I eventually found myself at a point in life where I took everything way too seriously.  If something or someone wasn’t making me better then I didn’t want to have anything to do with it.  I was like this for along time…and eventually one day found myself questioning why I couldn’t laugh like I used to as a kid.  When I was younger my friends and I were always laughing, joking, and many times I remember laughing so hard I would almost pee myself!

why-so-serious-the-joker-3122768-1024-768

 

  I started to notice that I just couldn’t laugh at funny situations anymore.  Even when I would watch a funny movie I would just give sheepish snickers at the funniest scenes.  I would get envious of my friends who could laugh and tell jokes.  I started looking up about books and exercises to learn how to get my sense of humor back.  I stumbled across Laughter Yoga.  At first when I watched some videos about it I thought this was freaking weird as hell.  These people looked like idiots standing around laughing for no reason.  No way would I stoop to that level.

One day I decided to give it a practice in my bathroom by myself.  You start out by just doing the act of laughing.  Even if it’s fake as ever.  Just do the laugh exercise.  Then try even harder to laugh.  After doing this eventually I found myself cracking up just at how ridiculous I felt.  I only did this for about a minute before I had to stop because it just kinda felt unnatural.  

I decided that I would start doing this a couple times a week for a minute here and there.  The thing I found is that  I always felt really good after I did this exercise.  So then I started doing it more and just laughing my ass off for no reason.  I’d be in the car listening to a song and just decide to start laughing. I would do it while walking, while cleaning, while thinking!  

After a month I noticed that while watching movies and youtube videos I found that I would get an itch to laugh at scenes that were only slightly funny…I would just let myself go with the flow and laugh.  

When I look back on this little experiment I realize that it’s taught me how to have more fun in my life.  Laugh at things that I used to take so seriously and now other people enjoy being around me more because they know I’m not quite so serious.  Life’s too short afterall…no one gets out alive! So might as well laugh and smile as much as possible while here 🙂
