I did not mean for this video to come off as an attack. It's more of a reaction to the wonderment that is the web. Yes, you have to pitch your product or your biz, but there is a right way to do that. Use tact. Don't come off like Matthew Lesko,(the wacko on the info-mercials with the question marks all over his jacket pitching the government grant programs), because we're gonna tune you out.
You may have something that i WOULD be very interested in seeing. But you can't kiss me before you buy me dinner. Act like you recognize me as a fellow human, and i'll return the favor. Say hi, nice to meet you, you have a great looking family, how long have you been in your biz, etc.... anything to show me that you see me. Competition is very tough these days. The fast talking, chain smoking, slicked back hair car salesmen doesn't stand a chance. And please..... don't use a symbol to represent you on your profile pic on media sites. Use your own pic. Use your real name. Get the hint? Be real about yourself and have a genuine interest in others, and the results will be absolutely phenomenol.

Alrighty party people. Yes i was inspired by a book i just read to my 2 yr old......and? You're dealing with a guy that gets amazing vision from fortune cookies! The glass is always half full. So besides a super positive attitude, what else should you have in your arsenal? Courage.
Courage is the difference between a winner and a loser. Who cares if you end up failing at something? Did you try? Did you muster up the courage to really put in an honest effort? You can live with the pain of failure, or the pain of regret. Cowards have LOTS of regrets and it eats at them everyday. But that's not you. The fact that you we're even willing to view this blog means that you are open minded and ready to experience new things You were courageous in checking out what i had to say and i thank you for that!

This video is a hair lengthy, at least compared to all the others on here so far. For that reason i won't need to go into too much detail right here. There is a ton of useful information on the net and on youtube. If want want training in anything technical about getting your business up and going....it's there for you, so take advantage of it! However something i feel that there can never be too much of is a source of encouragement.
So in pondering exactly which direction i wanted to stay true to in my internet self creating journey, i realized that the area i'm most comfortable in and the area i have the most experience in, is encouraging others to GET OFF THEIR BUTT AND MAKE A DECISION! If you don't make any firm decisions about your future, then you will stay exactly the same. Blahhhhh! Let's grow together! I am so far from perfect, but i know what i want, and if you give me a fair chance, maybe we can brainstorm together and find out where you're supposed to be. But find your niche. There is a place out there that NEEDS YOU. It's ready, willing and able to create the life you want. You just have to make a choice. To want. Something more.
I'm here for you, so let's connect!

Ahhhhh, the importance of listening instead of doing all the talking. It is indeed a challenge. Some people might feel completely lost in a scary, new world and actually be willing to not only listen to what others have to say, but go above and beyond that and ASK for help.
These are the people whose success rate is likely to be much higher than the stubborn ones out there. You know the type. "Don't worry, i'll figure it out." Or, "what makes you such an expert?". It's the typical guy thing. Like how when you're driving you won't pull over to ask for directions.
This is why some women can easily surpass a man at alot of things. Because there's not the huge pride, ego thing going on. This applies to asking for tips on setting up a blog, all the way up to prospecting, or any other area in building your business. Of course you can see the value of being coachable in any area of life, however i am aiming it at a business sense. Point being: if you want to take a shortcut to get on the fast track, then don't be shy. Find someone who is kicking butt at what they do and say, "can you please help me?". That's it.
I was recently alerted to the fact that my videos were not working on here in the blogger format. (Thank you Nathan!) So i had to delete my posts and resubmit them. This is why you will see the Valentine's Day post show the 15th, instead of the 14th when it was originally posted. I am also still playing with the layout of the page too. So please bear with me and i should have everything in order very soon. Please continue to check back often as i will at least make sure that the video is functioning, and the text is posted, which is what really matters.
I was slacking on getting this video up yesterday, so i will do 2 seperate posts today. I told you i would make every effort to post daily and i'm a man of my word. So..... the video i did was based on what helps keep me motivated. It gives quite a plug to a popular magazine; but not popular enough in my opinion.
For many, many years i have filled my head with garbage. Now when i say garbage i don't mean that it wasn't entertaining, because it was very entertaining. Without naming specific magazines i will say that i could sit and read all the Hollywood gossip, latest upcoming movies and television shows, and other mags just based on flashy material objects that i was in no way of a position to purchase. Now while any of that can be acceptable bathroom reading material, it just doesn't really allow room for growth.
The time that i now allow for reading, reading anything at all, is strictly dedicated to growth. Educational, inspirational, spiritual, financially rewarding, business building growth.There just isn't enough time in a day for any useless fluff. There's still plenty of times that you just need to clear your mind and take a break from something, wether that means enjoying a movie or whatever form of entertainment you're into. However the bulk of your day should be dedicated to the the pursuit of your dreams. I found that once i made the choice to only allow positive, life-enriching material to enter my mind ........ hello major progress! So please take a moment to view the video to see which amazing source of motivation i am referring to. If for any reason there's ever any trouble viewing the videos on my blog, please let me know a.s.a.p. and i will resolve the issue. Also please rate and subscribe to my channel on you tube.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I will make this very short and sweet because who wants to read a long rambling when they're just meeting someone? And i don't want to make my blog posts about me, because it's all about you! I am a family man that has been on a mission lately to ditch all the negative influences in my life. Once i found that i needed to avoid conversations in my life that focused on people complaining about their problems and hearing them participate in self destructive behavior, and watching all the bad stuff on the news, and reading pointless gossip mags ....... is when life started getting better.
I don't mean that you should necessarily just cut off your friends and family completely, but alot of stuff they're throwing your way you need to be able to deflect it and not let it soak in and prevent you from going where you want to be in life. Whatever goals, dreams, desires you have..... just do it! Go for it! On your personal cruise ship there's only room for one navigator ...... you! I will be trying to keep this updated daily as well as making daily videos that will appear on here as well as my facebook page. Thanks again for spending your precious time with me and i hope you'll be back soon.
Here's to you!
Hope your day is filled with bountiful love; i know mine is! Of course with an absolutely gorgeous wife and 5 incredible children in my home, there is plenty of love to go around. The video message to this post was originally a minute longer. There's something funky going on with my webcam that puts me into extreme slow motion after a minute of taping.
Material items aside, we can really focus on showing our loved ones how much we care for them on this day. We shouldn't need a date on the calender to remind us of this, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. Focus today on the ability to love; and not just a single person. We're all capable of it and are mostly resistent to express it- (the author of this post included!). So in the spirit of St. Valentine,truly express your love and caring compassion for others. This can come in the form of gifts or a love letter to a spouse, or a simple but genuine compliment to a complete stranger. While expecting nothing in return, your kind words and gestures can do wonders to anyone on the receiving end.
Peace, LOVE, and happiness to all,
