Health and Energy

Posted In: Personal Success by Support

Success and Achievement Begins with You!

One of the key factors of a successful life is health and energy. All too often, these factors are overlooked for the more prominent aspects, such as control and long term planning. Nevertheless, if you are living an unhealthy lifestyle and lacking in energetic momentum, all the rest will soon fall to the wayside. Good health and energy are integral in reaching your long-term goals as well as simply enjoying the here and now.

One Wheel on the Vehicle to Success

“If we don’t have good health and energy, we don’t get much satisfaction out of life” – Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Achievement

One might wonder why poor health would impact a person’s success outside of the medical realm. The answer can be summed up in one dreadful word, depression. Regardless of whether the health issue is physical, mental, or emotional, depression can often be the end effect. Take the online entrepreneur for example. He is making good money through a web-based service. Then, he gets sick and is bound to his bed. He can still make money, but the pain is distracting. He cannot get out of bed, so someone has to help him. His helplessness leads to depression. His depression results in a lack of drive and inspiration. His business fails because his health hinders his drive. It is a sad chain of events.

The same holds true for the concept of energy. If we are tired all of the time, we will not have the drive reach for our goals. We might not notice it at first. Generally, it starts with a phrase such as, “I’m exhausted. I’ll do this tomorrow.” Once we start putting off our goals and dreams, we begin to lose them one day at a time. Tomorrow truly never comes. You see, the ability to find ultimate achievement is like a vehicle. Every aspect is one wheel. If a vehicle has just one wheel missing, it goes nowhere. Health and Energy is one of these wheels, and without it, the car, as well as yourself, will not be able to be driven.

Maintaining Health and Energy

Of course, the next question is, “How do I reach an acceptable level of good health and energy?” The energy aspect is fairly simple. Get plenty of rest. Everyone needs a minimum of eight hours of sleep every night. Do not depend on outside substances for energy. Coffee may be enjoyable, but it is not an acceptable replacement for rest. Authentic energy through plenty of rest is integral to having good health, and good health is an absolute in energy. These two aspects rely upon one another.

To reach and maintain good health, one has to put a little more work into it, particularly in the beginning. You need to balance your diet well. Do not attempt the many diets that promise that you can lose ten pounds per day. Simply eat a balanced diet. Your body will take care of the rest.

Though your day is likely pretty much full from reaching for your goals, always make certain that you are taking time to exercise. You do not have to do push-ups, sit-ups, and all that, but do take time out to walk a mile a day. It does not take all that long and will make a major difference in your physical well-being. Also, be sure to have at least one medical check-up a year. It seems like a waste of time when you are not sick to begin with, but in the long run, it can make all the difference in the world.

Success can be measured in many ways, such as financial or relationship-wise. Nevertheless, how can we truly say that we are successful when we do not have the energy to go out and enjoy it, or to even reach that success? Start with yourself. Make absolutely sure that your lifestyle is one that can support your dreams and goals in the long run.

Your friend on the web & in business,

Peace of Mind

Posted In: Personal Success by Support

Personal Success Begins with You

Of the millions of people all over the world, one would not think that you would be able to sum the majority up within three groups. When in regards to financial, social, and personal freedom, however, there is exactly that, three individual groups. Yes, you are a member of one of these groups. Civilization as a whole can be broken down to those who live in the past, those who live in the future, and those that live for today. Each of these has its’ pros and cons, and each one of them will prevent you from being your best. The past, the present, and the future will each one, individually, prevent you from reaching your utmost potential. Each factor will attack you in the area of your peace of mind, preventing you from reaching your goals.

These concepts are well armed with the very devastating and corrupting weapons of anger, doubt, regret, and fear to name a select few. There are many other negative emotions involved, but these are the hierarchy. To successfully find the peace of mind required in actively maximizing your full potential you must overcome each of these. To win this battle, you must first know what you are up against.

The Chains of The Past

“The first requirement is peace of mind – freedom from fear, freedom from anger and freedom from guilt.” -Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Achievement

First, we have the past. This is the reign that holds the majority of us back. Each and every one of us has a point in our past that we are not proud of. This could be a bad relationship, a bad decision, or pretty much any negative factor that keeps our hearts hard and our attitudes angry. It is vital that you see that this is nothing more than an anchor for you. As much as it might feel good to hold a grudge against someone, or at the very least feel like they deserve it, the only person that is suffering for it is you. In essence you are punishing them by beating yourself. Let go of the past and move on. Learn from it, but do not let it tarnish your peace of mind. The past is for experience. Hold that aspect of it and none other.

The Prison of Today

The present can also be a major wall for your success in life. Those of us that live only in the present life live for every second of every day as it happens. We are out for the thrill of life as it happens. We don’t worry about what we did yesterday or what we will do tomorrow. While this does certainly sound like a great lifestyle, it can hurt your peace of mind in the long run. Eventually this kind of attitude will lead you to a very narrow road. When we live only for the moment, we are not taking into account the long-term effects of what we do. This usually ends up with a lot of regrets and mistakes. Regrets can eat at you for years to come. Those who live only in the present usually end up being those living in the past.

Fixated on the Future

Then we have the ever-popular future focused individuals. These are driven people. They have their entire lives already planned out from the start. They know where they will go to college, when they will graduate, any in between jobs, how their career will progress, and when they will retire. These individuals are strong-willed and have their eye on the future. Unfortunately, again, these individuals generally end up living in the past in the long run. The usually do reach their goals, but then they end up looking back at all they missed in their lives, and regret comes again. They look upon the family that they never had time for, the vacations they never took, and all the important people in their lives that mattered, but that they just did not notice. Their eyes were on the ball, but nowhere else.

The Happy Medium

When you are seeking peace of mind, you have to overcome the barriers of allowing yourself to become a mainstay in one of these categories. Instead of living in the past, the present OR the future, give a little bit of yourself to all. Take the best qualities of each and make them a part of your existence. Take the lessons of the past, but leave the grudges, anger, and regret behind. Take the excitement of the present, but use wisdom and consider the consequences of your actions. Have a plan for the future, a goal that will leave you very financially well off, but remember that money isn’t everything. It helps, but the value of a loving family is priceless. If you can implement all of these in your life, then you can lead a happy existence, free of guilt, and full of potential!

Pushing the Limits

Posted In: Personal Success by Support

Reaching Beyond Your Boundaries

In life we face many daily issues that test our boundaries. There is always someone telling us that getting from point A to point B is possible, but point C is a slim possibility and D is absolutely impossible. In all too many cases, we end up settling for B as our permanent life station. Throughout our lives people place boundaries in their minds of what we can achieve, and we, in turn, see those boundaries and often let them settle into place. The truth is that the only true boundaries are those that we set for ourselves. We draw the lines. No one else has that power over our destiny.

Once these limits are set, all is still not lost. If one knows the proper ways in which to break these self-constructed walls of limitations, he or she can still live the maximum life possible. All it takes is a good look within yourself and the ability to believe that you can be more. Knowing how to change and not believing that it is possible is the same thing as not knowing in the first place.

In the next six articles we will be discussing ways of stretching beyond our preset horizons, becoming the maximum person, and reaching our goals and dreams.

Our basis for this is the teachings of famed Best-selling author and internationally renowned self-help guru, Brian Tracy. Tracy has spent his entire life learning what it takes to become the best that you can be, both on a personal and financial level. The proof is in the life of Tracy himself, as he has used his own techniques to destroy every barrier that has stood before him. Tracy has developed a simple six-step program that summarizes the ways in which we can push our limits until we ultimately achieve our life-goals.

Peace of Mind –You will never succeed at life if you cannot overcome those everyday onslaughts that the world seems to throw at you. It might be a job, a co-worker, a family member, or even financial issues. Regardless of the source, a mind of turmoil will not serve you in any positive manner. We must be able find a way to seek a mental shelter amongst the storms of life.

Health and Energy-Positive thinking and success have a lot to do with achieving our goals in life. Nevertheless, a positive thinker who is bed ridden from a sickness will still have a hard time winning a race, as an example goal. The same holds true with someone who smokes or drinks. Success in life can come in many forms, such as financial and personal achievement, but personal health is a major factor in success also.

Loving Relationships-As a symptom of the human condition, we all need relationships. Hermits rarely succeed on all levels. The loner might be rich, but still be miserable. Loving relationships are much like a battery, and we the machine. From our close relationships, we receive self-esteem, emotion, and drive. We need that energy to keep running.

Financial Freedom-A massive percentage of the population of the United States alone is in debt. It almost seems as if it is a requirement to be in debt these days just to own things. Getting in debt is not a problem, but getting out, on the other hand, is very hard indeed. Debt is reminiscent of falling into a pit. Falling in is easy enough. It hurts, but it’s fast and sudden. Getting out, on the other hand, is difficult. There are, however, certain ladders that can help you out of the pit of financial dependence.

Worthy Goals & Ideals- Setting and reaching goals is a very positive concept. Nevertheless, it is equally important that we make those goals something realistic and that will pay off in the long run. To have a goal to own a business that has no future at all is pointless. You are setting yourself up for failure. However, a business that is similar with new proven marketing techniques, on the other hand, might just work. It is important to question our ideals and goals before we write them in stone.

A Sense of Purpose-Why is it that you are chasing that dream? What reason do you have to get up in the morning and go to work each day? Is there anything about your goals that will make your life better when you reach it, as well as along the way? A sense of purpose is infinitely important when preparing to smash all the barriers in your life. If there isn’t something along the way that makes it worth it, then you will never reach that end-goal before losing interest.

Over the next six postings we will guide you through this series of positive proven techniques. By the end, it is our goal to destroy every boundary that this world has set on you and to send you bursting into a whole new lifestyle of success. Just keep an open mind and believe that this program will work for you as it did for Brian Tracy. If you believe, anything is possible.

Your friend on the road to success,

Richard Mortimer

The whole idea of Article Marketing is not new.  In fact, it has been around for a few years now.  The great thing about it is that you can use this technique to promote your products or services to a truly massive audience absolutely free.  And, furthermore, its not that difficult to master, even if you are not the creative type.  You can quite easily get a 500 word article together from scratch.  The truth is, its quite simple.  All you need to do is some basic research.  Pull all the information you need for your article straight from the Internet and simply form a brand new article to submit.  So, here are the four steps that will help you be successful with your article submissions to the directories:

First, before you press “article submit” to the directory, remember to include your author “bio” at the very bottom of every single article you write.  This is where traffic comes from.  No bio, no traffic!  You will also need to include a link to your web-site or the affiliate product you are promoting.  One of the great things about article marketing is that you don’t really even need your own web-site.  You can simply use affiliate programs to write reviews about and then link to the product sales page from your article.

Second, be honest in what you are saying to people.  That way, they will be more likely to see you as a resource for information, now and in the future.  The idea is not to over sell anything or to anyone.  Actually, you know what? its better to do the exact opposite.  So, do write your articles with character and honesty and your readers will appreciate your efforts.  Think of what you would want to read yourself.  You will be richly rewarded with affiliate sales if you do this step correctly.

Thirdly, if you are still struggling to generate an entire article on your own, there is another option for you to consider.  What you can do is, search the various article directories for topics that you are interested in, then, write an introduction and also a summary, as paragraphs and enclose the article.  Then you can re-submit the article with your brand new content and affiliate or web-site links.  This is also a great tactic if you want to get traffic to a blog. 

Fourthly, make sure you stay specific and within your niche.  Please don’t write about something you have no idea about.  That is to guarantee failure, not success.  So, stick with topics that are of interest to you.  You will then be less likely to lose interest in the project.  A good way to maintain interest is if you can find a way to make it more entertaining.  See Michael Cheney’s article “The Attack of the Google Killer Zombies” for an example.  

Alright, article submitting for profit is not going to make you into the next Donald Trump, but it can give you the opportunity to start with something small and then build your on your success and grow your profile and business.  There is, basically, no investment other than your own time and energy.  And, you can be very successful, if you treat it as a real job and not just some side-line project.  Take it seriously and make it work for you.

May you know the success you desire soon,

Richard Mortimer

As a very regular young English guy named Michael Cheney discovered not so long ago, people are getting lied to day in and day out. You see, society everywhere is in a conspiracy against you making the money that you can make, that you want to make, that you deserve to make.

Society everywhere tells you that you are destined to be little more than a indentured servant from the time you finish high school or college. Society says you need to get a j-o-b that will never pay you enough money… or, if it does pay you good money, the amount of time and energy and stress that you’ll need to invest into it will make it so that money is hardly worth it. And then, one day, you’re “allowed” to retire…on only a fraction of what you were getting paid when you had your j-o-b. So then, you can’t even afford your hard won freedom!

Society does not tell you that there’s a way out of this doom and gloom. But regular English guy Michael Cheney discovered that there is a way out – for him, for you, for everyone!

And the way out that is the way in to abundant wealth and total freedom at any age is affiliate marketing on the Internet.

But Michael does point out one very important thing: most successful affiliate marketers are also liars! Most affiliate marketing plans and so-called “strategies” don’t work – but, most of the time, the “secrets” that affiliate marketers sell about how to do what they do are all about those things that don’t work! But these affiliate marketers are in competition… with you. So they make their money two ways: they do things you don’t know anything about and then they get you to buy their useless “secrets” so they get paid for getting rid of the competition (you)!

So, Michael Cheney has set out to expose not just society’s lies but the affiliate marketing “guru” lies, too.

Michael knows precisely what he’s talking about, too…because he’s been there, done that! He has been searching for wealth and personal freedom since he got on the Internet back in 1995 and first started getting bombarded with those 1001 on-line marketing plan offers that you buy into. He knows what it’s like to get down on yourself for not doing something right when the plan you bought into doesn’t work…and you’re out the money you invested into it and the time you invested into it! And still you’re not rich and still you are stuck in your j-o-b as a mere indentured servant!

Michael started out his journey of affiliate marketing discovery making all the mistakes, living in a run-down one-bedroom apartment and trying to escape his disappointment and frustration with alcohol and hard drugs…but now his life is amazing, joyful, exciting, and secured by millions of dollars that stream into him even in his sleep!

And now this young regular guy is sharing the real secrets that he had to painstakingly learn the hard way, so that YOU don’t have to!

Writes Michael, “It’s been a long, lonely and painful journey but I’ve made it here to tell you the story!”

“You start off and everything looks rosy for you doesn’t it?”

“You hear about stories of riches over night and before you know it you have invested in some so-called solution that does nothing but empty your wallet and smash your dreams into even tinier pieces.”

“And this is the biggest pain of all…  But… it’s not your fault at all…”

May you see REAL success, and soon!
