Wake Up and Live Your Successful Life Now!

Wake Up and Live!Wake Up and Live! by Dorothea Brande
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A book for our time!
Though published in 1936 the instructive
value of this work has not diminished.
If anything has changed is that we, our
culture and society could benefit greatly by re-visiting
the timeless insights that Ms. Brande writes about.

Personal responsibility is the central theme of the book and
it is just as foundational now as it was then.
This is not another one of those self indulgent introspective
exercise that ends with no concrete or life-changing result.

Ms. Brande gives tips and strategies both anecdotal and
experiential to take us from wish-washy living to dynamic
and potent lives if only we choose to exercise self-discipline
and restraint.

Wake Up and Live makes it clear that our most ardent
competition is not from outside ourselves, but from within
our own minds.

We must learn to perform our own mind control!

One of my favourite tips in the book is this; that we
must realize that when we match our wits against
ourselves we are taking on the shrewdest and wiliest
antagonist we will ever have.

In other words we literally are very often our own worst
enemies when it comes to orchestrating our failures.
Why is this?
Because we invest too much of our time in idle pursuits
or dis-empowering associations and many other
activities that do not lead to our purported goals and
plans for our lives, both personal and professional.

I love this book and the style of writing truly
resonates with me.
There is no excess of words or airy jargon, just the
facts and what to do with them to progressively
achieve the desired and promised outcome(s).

This book should be required ready in schools and
re-read all through adult life.

It can be used to great benefit by students, internet
marketers, affiliate marketers, network marketers
and indeed all other types of  businesses and for
personal development as well.
I know that I will be re-reading it often.

When Good Taste Must Wait

Are you a beginner at something?

  • Internet Marketing
  • Writing A book
  • Learning to Cook
  • Even a Relationship

Why don’t people tell beginners the unvarnished truth about
the journey they are embarking on?
Take Internet Marketing for example!
Those successful online marketers with the mind boggling incomes
rarely tell all.
They have become so insensitive to everything but their growing revenues
that even when they offer to teach you –for pay- of course; they leave out
large chunks of integral details, either by over sight or design.
This is true whether you do what is called “creative work” or work that is
considered unimaginative or routine.
The truth is that in the beginning what you do might fall short of your good
taste.
This might be the frustrating situation for months or years until your productivity
catches up with your own good taste.
The worst thing you can do is give up.
Don’t do it.
Put in the time and just like those successful others you too will get to your ” there.”
However, unlike those forgetful souls please tell beginners who follow you that in the
beginning their good taste must wait.

Stretch Your Comfort Zone

Stretch your comfort zone to achieve financial success.
Les Brown says, “You don’t have to be great to get started, but
you have to get started to be great!”

Isn’t that the truth!

 

get-out-of-your-comfort-zone-stretch-yourself
Many people want the positive life-changing results that others
enjoy, but are not willing to make the choices those individuals
consistently make.
Those wishful dreamers are not willing to invest time in learning
and trying and failing repeatedly.

Giving up those hours spent in front of the TV or partying all
weekend long could put you on your path to greatness.

Financially, your comfort zone will most likely keep you broke
or just getting by.
Living one paycheck in front of financial crisis or disaster.

Stepping out of your comfort zone can be scary and it may
never become easier, but it is the only way to stretch and reach
those dreams you have.
It has been said that courage is NOT the absence of fear: it is to feel
the fear and press ahead anyway.
Consider your so called comfort zone just a rest stop as you plan
your next move toward your goals.

When you dare, when you stretch yourself you are almost certain
to experience challenges, such as opposition from family and
friends who want you to remain the same.
But if that is not what you want then you must lovingly
disengage from them and go it alone if necessary.

Many who have achieved greatness have been called loners, at least
for some part of their journey until others join them in their vision.

Achieve Your Financial Dreams!

Putting your financial dreams on hold is not only self-limiting,
but it prevents you from being able to help those you care about.
Imagine being able to meaningfully support your chosen charities or
send your parents on an elaborate all expenses paid holiday!

Your Content Sweet Spot

Insightful, informative and useful video about finding your content sweet spot…

Many Internet marketers go overboard with their content output.
They seem to feel that more is better and have no idea how they are
being perceived by their audience.
So they continue to send too many emails, write too many blog posts and social media updates.
This content over load can turn off readers instead creating that connection that they want.

Salma Jafri, Contributor, Entrepreneur
Makes actionable suggestions in the video above that should help content producers
avoid wasting time and annoying their readers from this point on.

Key Points to Your Content Sweet Spot

  • Aim for the minimum effective dose
  • Avoid annoying your content receivers
  • Use analytics to accurately measure content output limits
  • Promotional efforts maybe what you need to focus on

This is information that can seem counter-intuitive in the light of how much
we hear about how Internet users want content in search engines, etc.

However, it does not have to take a full page to say something that could be said in half
a page.

That has always been my belief and I am happy to see that others agree.

Why should a post be 700 words when 300 will say it all?

Do not bombard your prospects or customers with hourly emails no matter how discounted
your sale is!

Making repetitive posts to social media every five minutes is annoying to say the least.

So, go watch the video and make your content draw people to you!

Search Engine Optimization Simplified

What Is Search Engine Optimization?
It is the process and strategy of getting a first page ranking on Google which is the
number one search engine on the Internet.
Get a good ranking on Google and you will also do well in other search engines, such as
Bing and Yahoo.
A first page ranking is important for your business as most people who search online will not
often go past the second page in their searches.
The mechanics of Search Engine Optimization is straightforward but still not easily
accomplished and not static either.
It is elusive and constantly changing, especially as Google often changes its Algorithm in an
effort to:

  • Better serve its customers
  • Thwart cheaters who try to circumvent the rules of good Search Engine Optimization

Your First Step To Achieving Search Engine Optimization:

Research the best keyword (s) for your product or service.
Search for a keyword tool online. There are some free ones available and the list keeps growing.
Input your keyword or keyword phrase to begin your search.


For example, when you search on Google for “high end lawn furniture” you will be presented
with several pages.
Ignore the ads and go to the organic searches;
These are the phrases that real potential customers and buyers have searched for online.
Choose the most descriptive words or phrases that describes what you are going to offer
and build your website and marketing content around those.
Some experts insist that your website name (domain name) must have your keyword in it.
That might be ideal, but it is not always possible because with popular products or service
that domain has either:

  • Already been taken, or:
  • Too expensive to purchase, especially for a beginner with a limited budget

After you have a list of keywords you go to a domain seller like GoDaddy or Hostgator
and purchase your website name.
Hostgator also sells inexpensive hosting for your website.

Focus on your keywords!

Your content should focus on your keywords in an appropriate percentage/ratio to the
length of your post.
That means no overuse of keywords in an attempt to fool search engines about the
value of the information you have at your site.
Write to give your reader honest helpful information that will enable them to make clear
choices about your product and your competitor’s.

As your website grows and you get feedback from customers add those to your website
as testimonials.
To make your website become more visible to buyers you must promote, either through
paid or free methods.
Paid advertising can be found by doing a search engine request for that phrase.
Some of the most effective free methods are article marketing and linking back to your
“high end lawn furniture” website or blog.
Here Is A Short List Of Article Marketing Sites To Get You Started:
EzineArticles
Go Articles
Digg
After you have gained some popularity with your own blog or website you might also be
asked to guest post on other sites in your niche. The reward is usually a link back to your
website. If that link is from a high ranking site that will help to push your own site higher
in ranking too.
Ultimately, never forget that you want what is best for your potential customer so find a
quality product one you are proud to promote and then do so in an honest and helpful way…
