Having The Right Mindset & Inspirational Video From Will Smith

Having The Right Mindset

I’ve always felt that having the right “Mindset” is the difference between success and failure in any venture (life, business or otherwise). Because of this I’m always on the lookout for good books, quotations, interviews about successful people and mindset.

Here’s a compilation of different interview with Will Smith talking about success and mindset.

Totally worth the 10 minutes you spend watching this video.

Enjoy!

Here’s 6 Tips To Get Your Juices Flowing

Blogging Ideas Running Dry?

Blogging doesn’t just mean putting down thoughts into words then typing and writing it. You have to capture the interest of your readers and get them to keep on reading. To send your message across you have to get the attention of the reader and have a firm grasp of their interest and pique their curiosity.

The main ingredient in baking up an article is a large dose of creativity. While creativity may come natural to many people, some just gets into a block or something to that effect that can drive someone crazy. Many bloggers like you and me have literally torn their hair out when they get mental block and just can’t seem to get their creative juices flowing.

Putting words into images in the readers mind is an art. A clear and crisp depiction requires a certain flair that only creativity can provide. Similes and metaphors help a lot, but the way an article gets entwined word for word, sentence by sentence then paragraph by paragraph into a whole article develops the essence of the article.

So just what do you have to do when nothing comes to mind? There is no surefire ways to get the perfect ideas but there are easy ways to get your creative juices flowing. No one can guarantee you of having the perfect mindset but many methods may aid you in achieving that state of mind. Here are five easy ways for that. Mark my words, write for your readers, not anything else. They are the ones that keeps your blog alive.

1) Keep a journal with you always if it is convenient. Ideas can be triggered by anything you may hear, see, or smell. You think you will be able to remember them but trust me you gonna forget all of them when its time to start writing. Your senses are your radar in finding great ideas. Write all of them into a journal and keep it with you for future reference. You may also write down anything that you have read or heard, someone’s ideas could be used to develop your own ideas and this is not stealing. Remember that ideas and creativity can come from anywhere; it’s the development of the idea that makes it unique.

2) Relax and take time to sort things out. A jumbled mind cannot create any space for new ideas. Everyone must have a clear mind if one wishes to have their creativity in full speed. Get rid of all obstacles that can be a hindrance to your creativity. If you are bothered by something, you cannot force your mind to stay focused. Make sure you understand the ultimate aim of the post that you are going to make.

Try to relax every time that you can and think about your experiences and interactions with others. Your experiences are what shape your mindset and your opinions which could be reflected on your writings. Try to discover yourself, find out what triggers your emotions. Discover what inspires you and what ticks you off. You can use these emotions to help you in expressing yourself and your ideas, with this you can grow creatively.

3) Create a perfect workstation can inspire your creativeness. Your working place can be quite a hindrance if it doesn’t make you feel happy or relaxed. Creativity comes from being in a good state of mind and a messed up workplace that causes distraction won’t be conducive in firing up your creative flow.

Surround your working place with objects that makes you happy and relaxed. You may put up pictures, or scents, objects that inspire, or anything that can get your creativeness cranking. A clean and well organized workplace also rids of distractions and unwanted hindrances. With a good working place, you can work in peace and never notice the time pass by.

4) Set the mood. Setting the mood requires you to just go with the moment or to induce your self to feeling what makes your mind works best. Finding out what makes you tick could help you find ways to get your creative juices flowing. Set the pace and tempo for your mood and everything else will follow.

There are many ways to set the mood. Some writers have been known to use alcohol, a little sip of wine to stir up the imagination. Some would like some mood music while others let the lighting of the environment create the mood.

5) Go on a getaway and just do something unlike crazy. Letting yourself go and have fun produces adrenaline that can make your imagination go wild. Take an adventure or a solemn hike. Whatever it is that is unusual from your daily routine can take the rut out of your schedule. In no time at all, your creativeness will make use of that experience and get your imagination to go on overdrive.

6) If all else fails, read the comments that your readers left for you. Do some blog hopping. Create content out of the things you find from the comments or maybe from the content of other bloggers. Be it answering a question or asking a question.. If a question is asked in a proper manner, it can get you quite a good number of comments as well and thus bringing more activity to your blog!

Like myself, I try to go on a holiday as often as I can with the extra income that I generate online. I believe it is the best that you can get. A holiday to reward yourself! All work and no play make Ben a dull boy…

Man… No more excuses for not blogging! =)

Twitter service called Twittollower

I’ve Been BURSTING To Tell You About This!

AND AT LAST I CAN TELL YOU 🙂

Last month a couple of friends of mine – Tahir Shah
and Matt Garrett finished a new service they’d been working
on. Some partners of mine put it to a test.

It is important to watch this video TO THE END..

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO

After just one week of using TWITTOLLOWER they were so
gob-smacked at the results that I wanted to email you to tell
you about it – but launch was not to be until late January!

BUT I was two hours on Skype *today* bugging Tahir to let me
give you a headstart over the rest of the IM crowd because
that’s the only way I could insure this special pre-launch
offer to you. (at the end of the video, 200 get in only)

**You now have a SERIOUS advantage over most other people
in Internet Marketing – no kidding**

So what’s all this about and why am I raving?

We’re talking about getting thousands of TARGETED followers on
Twitter, to your niche, each and every month, without doing
anything. (60 seconds of work)

I’ve tried all the services to do this, as you know.

Nothing could be easier than this “set and forget” do-nothing
service to get a targeted massive follower base.

Watch the video which explains it here:

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO

It took me 60 seconds, SIXTY SECONDS to set up my account.

On of my colleagues set up his test account in November, starting
from scratch.. and now has:

OVER 5,000 FOLLOWERS WHO ACTIVELY READ HIS TWEETS!

And they’re REAL people with a REAL interest in the niches you
choose (Internet Marketing is my niche), and who visit your
sites and will buy your products.

What’s even better is that Matt & Tahir’s service allows you to
legally, ethically and effectively grab (we won’t use
the word “steal”, ok?) the followers from big name marketers in
your niche, such as Mike Filsaime, Willie Crawford and dozens
of others (you can choose more if you like, but as I said, it
is automated)

…And they won’t know a thing about it!

THEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TWEET TO YOUR NEW FOLLOWERS AND
ENJOY THE TRAFFIC AND THE LEADS AND SALES IT BRINGS!

I was going to put together this very service myself,
but Tahir and Matt frankly did an even better job.

This is a serious early-bird offer. I am one of only six
marketers – Tahir, Matt and three other marketers who are
able to offer this to you today.

Here’s what to do:

Tahir has made a video explaining fully how this service works.

1. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO – The video is over 30 minutes
long but it’s the only way you can lock into this unique service
at the earlybird price.

===> http://www.craigdawber.com/recommends/twitter/

2. Grab a drink and a snack, and watch it TO THE END
– You can’t get in any other way. They’re telling you how it works
and what it can do for you before you buy – how many other
marketers do that?

3. Decide if it’s for you (and it really should be:)

4. Lock in your place
(I get a commission for telling you about this, but I would be
doing exactly the same even if I didn’t).

You can build a real, effective Twitter account THAT YOU
CAN MARKET TO in a matter of weeks without HAVING TO DO
ANY WORK AT ALL. (even days!)

This service does it all for you.

– It’s limited.

– The lock-in prices are limited.

– This is a genuine early bird opportunity and I’m glad I’m in a
position to tell you about it.

2009 Review – Goals For 2010

Well..It’s a bit late but I thought I should let you all know my goals for 2010 since as I have been preaching to you all about setting your own goals and targets.

I know a few of you will be  familiar with my story – but some may not so ill give you a brief update.

In February of 2009, after being made redundant from my engineering job – I finally decided to concentrate all my efforts into my online business and go fulltime. It was a hard decision to make, support from friends and family wasn’t great as they didn’t completely understand what I was doing online.

Fast forward a few months I was now at a stage where I was making more online than I had done working as an engineer.

So that’s a brief overview of 2009, what I want to do now is tell you about 2010. My goals and ambitions. Why am I doing this? because if I post it here for the world to see. then I am accountable to all my loyal subscribers, and that is a powerful mental trigger, plus – I’m pretty competitive and don’t want you to see me fail! ;)

So – My goals for 2010.

Business Goals

  • Build my subscriber base to 30,000. I will do this by using adswaps and also through various product launches.
  • Send more informative emails to my list.
  • Build my income to a consistent $30,000 per month.
  • Have my own 6 figure product launch….(working on this now)
  • Set up a membership site helping others to achieve online success
  • Set up a coaching program for my loyal subscribers
  • Redevelop my blog with a redesign and more content updates (at least 1 per week), as I’ve been slacking lately!
  • Go to at least 5 seminars / networking events.(first ones on the 23rd January in London)

Personal Goals

  • Run the London Marathon on the 25th April 2010.
  • Go to the gym at least 3 times a week and also get a personal trainer.
  • Travel more and see the world, Las Vega and an African safari are on my hit list during 2010.
  • Buy a new house
  • Buy a new car, it’s getting old now.
  • Spend next Christmas and New Year somewhere nice and sunny with my friends and girlfriend.

This final goal I would say is a personal and a business goal. I want to train at least one person one on one to do what I have done and earn a full time living online.

So there you have it – I’ve told you what I want to do in 2010..I challenge you to tell me what you are going to do!

My goals may look quite intimidating to you – Hell, they look intimidating to me, but I will achieve them all in 2010. I guarantee it.

Your goals may be earning your first $ online, or getting 1000 subscribes, it doesn’t matter how big, or how small they are, you just need to make sure you have them and that you work towards them everyday.

That is the secret to success. Create goals —> Take action and NEVER EVER stop believing in yourself.

Blogging For Beginners And 3 Blog Traffic Tips

3 blog traffic tips

Blogging For Beginners And 3 Blog Traffic Tips

Have you always wanted to start a profitable blog and hopefully be able to make a good living out of it because you have heard how lucrative the internet market is? But you are always held back by a mysterious force because you do not know if you are suitable for it or whether time is on your side. Tell yourself this right now, there is always a first time for everyone.

Every pro bloggers you see on the internet now started out as a beginner back then, so you should have no worries about being a beginner blogger yourself. But the most important thing at this stage is to get your mentality and concepts right so you do not waste time doing the wrong things (which is almost unavoidable). Driving traffic to your blog is the primary step to market it and securing a spot for yourself in the blogging arena. Here are 3 blog traffic tips which I have used and found to be extremely effective to start off with as a beginner blogger:

1. Free Traffic Exchange

This is a great way to get some initial traffic to your blog in your early stages and it helps to make your blog look a little more popular. The down side to this is that it takes a lot of time away from your schedule to be clicking on the other websites for traffic exchange.

2. Write Guest Post For Blog Celebrities

Take some time to scan through popular blogs and discover a common point between these popular blogs and what the hot topics they are talking about are. Then, use the writing skills you have been wanting to show off to churn out a top quality article that no one can resist but to post it up their own blogs and submit to one of these popular bloggers whom you think can drive you the referral traffic you want. They have the traffic and they can help you get it.

3. Interview Successful Internet Marketers

Try to gook up an opportunity to interview a successful blogger or internet marketer and post it up on your blog. Do not worry about getting rejected (you will probably face some) because there will be at least someone out there who is willing to take up that challenge and that will get your engine going.

One thing you may realize is that you do not actually know how to start. My advice is, DON’T be afraid to ask! You will never know if you have missed any possible opportunity if you don’t ask at all. Work faithfully using the above mentioned beginner bloggers’ tips and you will see your initial traffic start flowing in and that will get your blog going like how you want it to.
