We tend to procrastinate most when we are faced with a challenge that we are not familiar with or simply just don’t like. I like to think of this as getting out of our comfort zone. When we do something we are not familiar with we begin to learn which is kind of funny because when we do things in our comfort zone we are just repeating something we already know. You would think it would be the other way around. Maybe it’s because we think we know all there really is to know, therefore we just put it off or convince ourselves it can just wait.

When you think about it, nothing good really ever comes from your comfort zone. However when you step out of your comfort zone new things begin to happen, you have more insight, new signals are being sent, opportunities begin to surface and you begin altering the U in YOU.

Just think for a moment about the last time something good came from lying on the couch watching TV, or just going through the motions of life (wake up, commute, work, commute, eat, watch tv, sleep and repeat). Now think about one time in your life you did something out of your comfort zone and the benefits you received.

When I was 19 I began traveling with two of my friends. We spent two months traveling together and then one of my friends went back to his family and we parted ways and my other friend ended up meeting the love of his life and ended up getting married while we were in New Mexico. This seems funny now because the whole reason we were traveling was to land a job in the Uranium mines in NM and make our fortune so we could meet of with other friends that had traveled to Greece. As the wedding date approached I began examining my options, all of which were stepping out of my comfort zone. One night as I perused the magazine of my liking at the time “Penthouse” I stumbled on this article about hitch-hiking. The article inspired me to continue my adventure by myself and so after the wedding I set out and completed my 6 month adventure hitch hiking across the country.

The most memorable experience was being all alone so I would seek out entertainment and meeting new people. Sometimes I would go to bars and because I was so board I would end up being the first one there. I would usually sit in the corner and when someone would come in that looked like someone I needed to know (female) I would think of something interesting to say, walk over as any cool 19 year old would do and then roll out my shtick that would go something like this: Hey how you doing my name is Gary (some would actually have to turn around in there chair) what is your name? Are you from here? and maybe throw in the real closer: you come here often? That would usually get me a single word response and then they would usually turn back around and carry on with their conversation while I was still standing there. So I would just walk back to my corner with my head hung down and tail between my legs, then I would think of something else to say, get back up, walk over and drop my new shtick. I remember how painful and embarrassing that was because let’s face it at 19 I was not the most articulate person in the world.

The good that has come from this, is to this day I am so comfortable with meeting new people and striking up conversation that it boggles the minds of some of my closest of friends. This has become a real asset in sales and continues to provide me with benefits that I will never loose.

Now I’m not saying go hitch-hiking, however I am saying step out of your comfort zone and break some barriers, set the bar and I can promise you’ll reach personal highs. Just sayin!

Success Starts With A Definite Purpose

Like many of us we are determined to be successful, we believe whole heartedly in the value of what we have to offer and are focused on maximizing our income for our efforts. In other words playing the cash game.

Few of us realize the desire for more money is really about more value in living, more freedom to do what we enjoy doing and possibly leaving some tracks in the sand without binding the majority of our time to income production.

We all want to stop waking to work, rest, eat, sleep, and repeat. We hate that our time is monopolized by a paper chase which seams to go out quicker, than it comes in. We end up working to live instead of living to work!

As I spend more time studying and analyzing universal law, I have realized that it was actually possible for us to make lots of money doing exactly what we enjoy in life. I understand that this seems counterintuitive for most people, but it’s true. <strong>You really can do what you want to do and make money.</strong>

We are taught to go to school, study, get good grades, get a “good” job, work hard, save our money and enjoy our years of retirement. Well, what happens if the game changes and you can’t retire when you planned to? What happens if you never reach retirement age?

What happens if you lose that “good” job? What happens if you’re not good at studying, or you have to get a crummy job instead of going to school because bills have to be paid? Any one of these things, and sometimes all of these things can happen, even to people with the best of intentions.

So what then? Are you never to enjoy your life? Maybe, some people never do. But, what I found is that the solution is quite simple.

The solution is to pursue your definite purpose.

Right now, answer this one question.  <strong>If, right now, you already had all the money you would ever need to do absolutely anything you desired to do, and right now, you had already done absolutely everything you have ever imagined yourself doing, what would you be willing to do with the rest of your life, to give your life meaning, on your terms, when you felt like doing it? </strong>

Answer that one question honestly, and you my friend will have determined what is called a “definite purpose.” Your definite purpose is that thing that you could pursue all day everyday, if necessary, and yet it never feels like work, you never think of it as a job. Your definite purpose is that thing you could pursue because you truly enjoy it. It brings meaning and value to your experience of living. It’s what you can pursue with passion and joy and a smile on your face. It’s something that you could talk about anytime, with anyone willing to talk about it.

<strong>That, my friend, is what you should be pursuing right now! </strong>

To achieve a definite purpose you must visualize what it will look like. You must place yourself into the image in your mind and feel what achieving your definite purpose will feel like. You must see yourself doing what you will do when you achieve it. You must resolve to keep your faith strong and return your focus to success whenever it wanders.

But, most importantly, <strong>you must take action</strong>. This step is crucial, not because your plan is what will bring success, but because you must be doing things that support your desire and faith in order for your desire and faith to be embedded in your subconscious mind (where transmission to the universe occurs), and you must be taking actions through which the universe can access delivery.

<strong>Just keep in mind that all words, thoughts actions, and emotions are subject to the laws of the universe.</strong> Now, some are going to read these words and say, “Sure, think positive and work my plan . . . I don’t need universal law to do that. And if that were all anyone ever needed, then we all would have what we desire.” If this is what you are thinking, you are missing the point.

People with absolutely no knowledge of universal law attain what they want all the time. This is very true. What is also true, however, is that universal law is at work whether you know it or not. So, people with no knowledge, even people with knowledge and no belief, can still have a definite purpose and utilize the principles of universal law completely unaware that they are doing so.

How often have you looked at successful people and determined that they are not smarter than you, they are not more talented than you, they did not start from a more beneficial position than you, and decided that they must simply be “luckier” than you?

Well, I’ve got news for you, they are not luckier than you either! Whether they knew it or not, they applied the laws of the universe to attain their success. Without conscious alignment with universal law it may take some longer than others, with conscious alignment with universal law it will be quicker, but each of us can have what we desire when we comply with universal law.

Knowing how to work within these laws simply makes things happen quicker, with less effort and more consistency. <strong>The more skill you have in operating within this system, the faster and easier you can make things happen. It is that simple!</strong>

When we have what some call a “burning desire”, that is (at least for that moment) a definite purpose. We think about it all the time, even when we don’t want to. We are reminded of it everywhere we go, and everywhere we look. We dream about it, and act in ways that support it’s coming. We get excited by the potential of having it, and we anticipate its arrival. That is a definite purpose.

That is when our subconscious mind has taken over and is broadcasting to the universe our intent to have this experience. That is when the universe is responding by rearranging potential everywhere to make way for delivery of this experience. That is the power of a definite purpose!

But, when delivery takes just long enough for us to stop anticipating; just long enough for us to doubt delivery, the momentum stops! The universe finds use for that energy somewhere else where anticipation is greater. The infinite intelligence of the universe does not judge us for our impatience. It simply responds to our decreased attraction for that experience and continues to go about delivery where attraction remains high. It is doing its job to perfection. If we stop wanting it, we don’t get it, it’s just that simple.

Right now, as you are reading this, the universe is making way for my goal attainment.

I have already seen how the changes I have made have brought me what I desired. I defined a definite purpose in several areas of my life and have been amazed by my results. My focus in life has changed. My state of mind has changed. My relationships with others have changed. My level of consciousness has changed. I am promoting the unfailing consistency of universal law, and I do so for good reason.

<strong>Pursue your purpose. The income will come! </strong>

Check out Oprah on Larry King Live discussing universal law (specifically the Law of Attraction aka “<a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&amp;v=i0wYxh-akZs”>The Secret”.)</a> <strong>SO, WHY ARE YOU HERE?</strong> You are here because you’re being assisted by infinite intelligence. You’ve been looking for strategies related to your finances, your career, your emotional or physical wellbeing, your family, your social status, or perhaps all of these.

You want to have more money, more freedom, and more joy. You want to be more confident. You want to feel better about yourself and what you contribute to others. You’re here because you are curious about how you can work with a higher power to have a more meaningful and enjoyable life. <strong>You’ve been thinking about making some changes in your life and you’ve been searching for the courage to get started.</strong> In short, you want to clarify your definite purpose.

Perhaps you’ve heard of the law of attraction. Perhaps you have even used it with success. Or, like so many others, perhaps you have had difficulty achieving success with it. Perhaps, you have never heard of it. Either way, <strong>IT IS NOT BY CHANCE THAT YOU FOUND THIS SITE!</strong>

Infinite intelligence is simply delivering to you an opportunity to gain what you seek. You must decide for yourself if you will accept it.

Once you have defined your definite purpose you may be seeking a platform that will enable you to achieve your goals.

If your ultimate goal, when using YouTube is to pave a way to fame and fortune, and to have your videos viewed by millions of people then getting views would be the main goal.

One of the best ways is to build your audience is to build your subscriber list because they represent a starting point for the number of views each new video will receive. A lot of people using YouTube don’t really see the subscribe feature as all that important so there is a certain amount of indifference as to whether they are a YouTube friend with someone or not. This, however, can work to your advantage. Recently, YouTube has implemented a new  feature: when you first log in, you have a choice to view new videos posted by people you’ve subscribed to, or to see all the activity by your Friends which means that simply by being “Subscriber Friends” with another You Tuber!

For years people have been sending out spam asking people to subscribe to their channel. Many YouTubers are resistant to such spam. Even if they like your videos, they are not necessarily going to jump on that “Subscribe” button. The reason is basic human nature: it’s an action they have to consider and, let’s face it, inaction takes less effort than action. And once they cruise by that subscribe button, there’s little chance they’ll ever think of coming back to it therefore a great way is to just tell them to subscribe in your video or with annotation.

Another great feature YouTube has is in the comments section, because now you can create a Video response and it gets sent as a email directly to the creator…If you post a comment you will see it right on the page so if you want other peps to see your comments then you would post it in writing and if you want to send a message directly to the creator then “Create a video response” and it will go directly to his email inbox.

If you are into maximizing your traffic then these two tid-bits should be a real treat.

It would just be wrong for you and your business not to subscribe to my channel on YouTube and my blog because I only give content you can use that will help you build your business.

Subscribe to my YouTube channel by clicking here (which is one of my videos) then just click the subscribe button and the next time I post a new video you will see this when you log onto your YouTube account.

P.s. If you’re interested in learning more about Viral Marketing and getting a first look at my new website just put that in the comments section below.

Viral Marketing, What is it really?

Unless we find a cost-effective way to get our message out, we are doomed. We can no longer survive by interrupting strangers with a nuance of messages about a product they’ve never heard of, using techniques that annoy them.

Folks have too little time and too much power to stand for this much longer therefore we need new ways to promote our business.

Viral marketing is an idea that spreads–and an idea that while it is spreading actually helps market your business or cause.

There are two kinds of viral marketing: The original viral marketing is the product where a self-amplifying cycle occurs. Hotmail, for example, or YouTube. The more people use them, the more people see them. The more people see them, the more people use them. The product or service must be something that improves once more people use it.

A second kind has evolved over the last few years, and that’s a marketing campaign that spreads but isn’t the product itself for example: a poster of Barack Obama was everywhere, because people chose to spread it. It was viral and it was marketing (because it made an argument–a visual one–for a candidate.)  Viral_marketing_principles_size485

It took 40 years for radio to have ten million users. It took 15 years for TV to have ten million users. It only took 3 years for Netscape to get to 10 million, and it took Hotmail and Napster less than a year.

 

Why should we care?  Because you don’t have to wait for a viral idea to happen organically or accidentally. You can plan for it, and make it happen.

 

In the old days we’d run ads, interrupt people with unanticipated, impersonal, irrelevant ads and hope that they’d buy something. And sometimes they would. For the most part this old way is becoming obsolete and new rules of marketing are taking shape.

 

Instead of causing one-way interruption, marketing is now about delivering content at just the precise moment your audience needs it.

 

Fortunately, there are already proven techniques you can use to identify, launch and profit from ideas that can be turned into viruses. There’s a right and a wrong way to create them, and more important, the care and feeding of your idea can dramatically affect its potency.

 

The key steps to building a virus are:

  1. Create a noteworthy online experience that’s either totally new or makes the user’s life much better. Or make an offline experience better/faster/cheaper so that switching isn’t worth the hassle.
  2. Have the idea behind your online experience go viral, bringing you a large chunk of the group you’re targeting WITHOUT having to spend a fortune advertising the new service.
  3. Fill the vacuum in the marketplace with YOUR version of the idea, so that competitors now have a very difficult time of un-teaching your virus and starting their own.
  4. Achieve “lock in” by creating larger and larger costs to switching from your service to someone else’s.
  5. Get permission from users to maintain an ongoing dialogue so you can turn the original attention into a beneficial experience for users and an ongoing profit stream for you.
  6. Continue creating noteworthy online experiences to further spread new viruses, starting with your core audience of raving fans.

 

It’s Possible To Dramatically Increase The Chances Your Idea Will Catch On And Spread.images

 

This is the great part. Once you understand the fundamentals behind the development of a viral idea, you can unleash your own.

 

Just because viral ideas usually spread through unknown means or accidental events doesn’t mean that there isn’t a science to building and managing them.

 

You can invest in designing your product to make it virus worthy. Then if you understand the eight elements of the viral formula, you increase your chances of spreading your idea every step along the way, therefore:

 

 

  1. 1.      Make it virus worthy. If it’s not worth talking about, it won’t get talked about.

 

  1. 2.      Identify the tribe. You won’t get the full benefit of a viral idea until you dominate your tribe.

 

  1. 3.      Expose the idea. Expose it to the right people, and do whatever you need to do to get those peopled deep into the experience of the idea as quickly as possible. Pay them if necessary, especially at the beginning. NEVER charge for exposure if you can help it.

 

  1. 4.      Figure out what you want the sneezers to say. You’ve got to decide what you want the sneezers to say to the population. If you don’t decide, either they’ll decide for you and say something less than optimal, or they won’t even bother to spend the time.

 

  1. 5.      Give the sneezers the tools they need to spread the virus. After you’ve got a potential sneezer, make it easy for him to spread the idea. Give him a way to send your idea to someone else with one click. Let me join your affiliate program in sixty seconds or less. Reward the people I spread the virus to, so I don’t feel guilty for spreading it.

 

  1. 6.      Once the consumer has volunteered his attention, get permission. The goal of marketer is to use the virus to get attention, then to build a more reliable, permanent chain of communication so that further enhancements and new viruses can be launched faster and more effectively, under your control this time.

 

  1. 7.      Amaze your audience so that they will reinforce the virus and keep it growing. Where are the Cabbage Patch Kids? Why do some viruses burn out more quickly than others? The simplest reason is that marketers get greedy and forget that a short-term virus is not the end of the process, it’s the beginning. By nurturing the attention you receive, you can build a self reinforcing virus that lasts and lasts and benefits all involved.

 

  1. Admit that few viruses last forever. Embrace the lifecycle of the virus. Cats was a terrific success on Broadway. But even great shows don’t last forever. By understanding that the needs of the virus change over time (and that the benefits received change as well) the marketer can match expenditures to the highly leveraged moments.

 

I look forward to your comments as well as the results of my search for the “Secrete Viral Formula”

Now that I have discovered how to install wordpress and create my very own blog that I can customize to my hearts content I thought I would reassure anyone who is interested in setting up a blog on how easy it really is.  I simply went to YouTube and searched “How to set up a wordpress blog”.  Then I picked James Stafford  How to Create A Blog With WordPress/A Free Website Software Builder and within minutes I had a blog.  Well not necessarily because I had to sign up with a hosting company (I used D9hosting.com).  I picked D9 because it was recommended to my by my mentor.  Then I had to pick a name for my blog which I just used my name and purchased the URL from D9.  All of this is illustrated in the video.  The only cost’s I incurred was the hosting because the first URL is free with a hosting purchase.  Pretty cool!  Now I plan on discovering how to add widgets, links, pics and other enhancements for my site, therefore stay tuned and I will share.
