You Deserve To Do What You Love!

You Deserve To Do What You Love!

When we pursue doing what we’re passionate about what does that mean? John Dir says in his article How to Find Your Passion, “Passion is a pure form of motivation or compulsion that provides an energizing constant which is independent of environmental demands. It is an irresistible drive to focus one’s attention and energy to accomplishing something of personal worth, which cannot be daunted by a sense of failure to accomplish the goal.” Did you ever wake up one morning way before the alarm went off just because you were going to do something you just couldn’t wait to do? What was it? You deserve to do what you love! In fact it’s exactly what you’re supposed to be doing.

Oh, you knew that already? So how do you figure it out?

Let’s start with the obvious:

1. What would you do if you were independently wealthy
and no longer had to do anything to earn money?

2. What do you enjoy doing so much that you would do it
everyday for free?

These questions are not easy for some people to answer. Many people consider these questions frivolous. After all, I’m not independently wealthy and I can’t afford to work for free.

Well, back up. I didn’t ask if you were wealthy I asked what you would do if you were. Please… allow yourself the opportunity to dream. This is a key. I know you know how to daydream you do it everyday.

You see if you get stuck on how to make money with your passion you’re not going to allow yourself to figure it out. Go back to question #2. What are you doing now for free that you love to do? Listen to your heart, not what you think others expect of you.

Plan the time in your life to do more of what you enjoy doing. Put it on your day planner if you have to. If you love to travel, plan it. Go online and study the places you want to go. Read about the hotels and the sights. Envision yourself doing those things. Plan day trips around where you live go find the unusual things in your neighborhood. Get guide books on your state and become an expert at finding the places that interest you. Practice traveling in your back yard. Take a picnic if you can’t afford to stop and eat. Do It!

I spend at least an hour each day studying Philosophy and Personal Development. I can’t get enough information it consumes my free time but it’s what I look forward to everyday it’s what I’m excited about each morning. What am I going to learn today that I can share with others?

Now let’s get to the money part. You may never earn a penny from your passion but what does it matter if you’re doing what you love. At least in your spare time. However, if you become knowledgeable in a particular area that you love and over time you know more about it than most other people guess what? You have value in that area. How do you market that value? Write an eBook and sell it through ClickBank, build a website, write a book to get published, share what you’re learning with others when you have the opportunity, teach it at an adult learning center, write articles to submit on the internet. Information today is like gold, it has great value and there are people everywhere looking for it. And just imagine how much joy you will get out of sharing what you love with others. They will not help but see your passion. I have read that after about 4 years, people who have pursued their passion start to make close to what they made in their old unfulfilling jobs – often even more.

I offer one more quote from John Dir’s article How to Find Your Passion, “Your life’s passion may be discovered in an instant, or take many long years to uncover. You will know you have it when your heart of hearts tells you, “I don’t care what other people think. I know this is what I want to do, and I am going to get started making it happen. I don’t care how long it takes, or how difficult it will be for me to accomplish; I just know I need to see where this idea will take me.””

How To Have Your Final Smoke Today – Forever

How To Have Your Final Smoke Today – Forever

Take it from someone who has learnt how to stop smoking after 17 years; you have to make the decision to have your final smoke.

I wrote in a previous article about the necessity to get your mind right first when considering how to stop smoking. It is like anything in life, if you go at this uncommitted you will fail. It took me three months, maybe even longer to have my final smoke. When I first sat down and asked myself the ‘how do I stop smoking?’ question, I set in motion a thought process that led me to smoke free living.

Every single time I had a cigarette, I would be thinking about stopping. I would think about every single reason I should stop, no matter how trivial, and I would repeat each reason to myself over and over again. Think about someone you have seen have a cigarette for the first time. What happens? They cough and splutter violently, of course much to the amusement of those around them but the point is this is not a natural thing for the body to be doing.

I realized I had forced my mind and body into this filthy habit and I could get myself out of it too. Now, I am not talking about going at it cold turkey, what I am saying is the answer to ‘how do I stop smoking?’ is in the grey matter between your ears. If you use a quit smoking product, whether a patch, gum or pill, you are expecting the product to do the work for you. This is why many quit smoking products, even one like Final Smoke, fail people.

Pre-quitting before you have your final smoke

The key is not to make a big deal of it. Just set a date, sooner rather than later, and stick to this date. Avoid making it a Monday, if possible, as this is usually a bad day for everyone. The less significant you can make this date, the easier it may be.

Many people fail to quit because they use their irritability as a crutch and in a lot of cases they annoy the people around them so much that eventually someone might say something like, “I will go buy a pack for you if you just stop such a pain”. Let your friends and family know you are making a ‘do or die’ attempt to quit so they know how to help you to stop smoking.

There are no easy answers to the ‘how to stop smoking?’ question but knowing ahead of time what can be expected will help tremendously. Remember this, there are many other people around the world who have beaten this unnecessary addiction and gone on to live happier and healthier lives.

You can do it! And once you have achieved your goal to stop smoking you’ll be staggered at how incredible you will feel. You’ll be proud of your accomplishment and be an inspiration to other smokers who want to know how to quit for good.

The Difficulty Of Search Engine Marketing

The Difficulty Of Search Engine Marketing

When deciding how to promote your business, you will likely type “search engine marketing” into your favorite search engine to discover how to get your company to the top of the list.

Search engine marketing can be a very difficult topic to understand. People who say that they understand it usually have a general idea of what is going on, but can’t tell you the details about it. In fact, even if you decide to contact a search engine marketing firm, they might not be able to explain search engine marketing to you adequately, unless you are really familiar with a lot of Internet and marketing terms. They may use a lot of buzz words to get you excited about something that you really don’t understand.

So how do you know if you are getting a good deal or not when working with the search engine marketing consultant, especially, if they might not even be able to explain it well enough for you to understand? How do you know if you are comparing apples to apples or apples to oranges?

The answer to these questions is that you have to do a lot of research on search engine marketing. It isn’t rocket science, but it’s also not something that you can understand it one day. A good search engine marketing consultant is going to give you information and resources on how to understand the process and what they can do for you, and then expect you to trust them to do your search engine marketing.

Finding a good search engine marketing firm is as easy as asking for a recommendation from some of your friends or contacts that are in the same business as you. If they are using a search engine marketing service and are satisfied with the results, they will be more than likely to give you the contact information. If they are using a search engine marketing service and are not happy with the results, they’ll probably tell you that as well.

Taking your time when making a decision on which search engine marketing scheme to go with is going to be your best bet. You don’t have to decide to go with the first firm you talk to, and if you’re not comfortable with the plan, or still don’t understand it fully, you can always wait for a firm that can explain this complicated procedure to you properly.

In order to save money, you need to understand this stuff before you start a campaign. A good company is going to make sure that you have all the tools to understand exactly what they are going to provide, how they are going to provide it and what the expected results could be.

Getting to the top of the search engine results may be your goal, and the best way to do that is to make sure that you understand how to market your business, and how search engine marketing can play a role. When deciding how much money to put into your advertising budget, make sure to include search engine marketing as part of your budget along with other Internet and non-Internet advertising ideas.

How To Stop A Relationship Breakup

How To Stop A Relationship Breakup

Learning how to stop a relationship breakup is not as difficult as it may seem. All it takes is learning how to communicate with your spouse on a different level. Remember what it was like when you first got together? You talked about anything and everything and agreed on most things too. What happened?

Well, most likely, somewhere along the line one of you got your feelings hurt by what the other one said or did and it did not get addressed. Little resentments then started to creep their way in and got bigger and bigger. If one of you is stuck at home most days and the other one gets to go out and play all the time, more resentments build. One blames the other for their unhappiness and soon you find yourselves caught in a tailspin just waiting to crash and burn.

If you really don’t want that to happen then you need to figure out how to stop a relationship breakup before it gets too out of control and all of a sudden divorce court is looming in front of you. How do you do that?

The first step, both of you, stop being so selfish! This is supposed to be a partnership not one pitted against the other. It’s not about what each of you as individuals get out of this relationship, it’s about what the two of you can accomplish together. Take stock of what you have built together. When all the pettiness gets swept out of the way and it comes right down to brass tacks, do you still love each other? Are you still ‘in love’ with each other?

If the answer is yes then just start treating each other better. If you have done something wrong, fix it. Say, “I’m sorry”, and mean it. A little sorry goes a long way to fixing hurt feelings and whittling away at those little resentments that have built up for so long.

TALK to each other, not at each other. ASK how the other is doing, how their day was. LISTEN to each other, more importantly, HEAR each other. CARE about what is important to them, CARE about how they feel. Ask if there is anything you can do to take a little stress off of them. They will appreciate it and when it comes to your turn they will remember what you did for them and then do it for you. This is called GIVE and TAKE. When one of you does all the giving and the other does all the taking once again, those little resentments build and build.

It will take some practice, human beings are inherently selfish, and it takes some work to be the partner you should be when you are in a committed relationship. A few simple changes in how you approach your spouse or significant other will aid you in learning how to stop a relationship breakup.

Linking Strategies You Need To Know

Linking Strategies You Need To Know

Many people who are starting an internet business do not understand the importance of building links to their website. You can compare the links pointing to your internet business to opening a brick and mortar business and having people all around the area telling others how great your business is, this is basically people links.

How do these brick and mortar business get people to tell other people? They don’t force them or pay them money; they give them great service, they give them a great product and continually give them great service after the sale. Well it’s the same on the internet. The links you receive pointing to your website tells others how good your business is, how good the service is and what great products you have.

How do you get links to your site? Internet marketers have many different ways of doing this. What is the best way? Well I don’t think there is a best way I think there are just different ways and you need to choose the methods you are knowledgeable about and comfortable with.

Here is a list of some one way link methods that internet webmasters use:

1. Article writing and article submission
2. Trade articles with other webmasters
3. Directory submission
4. Post to forums
5. Post to blogs
6. Link Exchange (not a one way link but it has its place)
7. Create great content and have other websites link to you
8. Create a piece of software code that other websites can use on their site
9. Create a video that others can use
10. Submit a press release
11. Buy links from websites
12. Find webmasters and beg for a one way link

This is just a short list of ways to get links. When you create your link it is beneficial to create your link with a keyword or as some people call it an anchor tag. You should do some research and choose the best keyword that fits your business. I am not going to go into how to do keyword research in this article but there are many articles on the internet that explain how to do this.

Every time you place your link make sure that the keyword is the active link that points back to your site. One suggestion I would make is that I would use a keyword that has high traffic searches per month. Many people will tell you not do this because you will never rank in the search engines for this word, but what they don’t tell you is that if you use the high search keyword you will get ranked for many low searched keywords on your website. This will create traffic to your website.

How long will it take until I receive tons of traffic? There are different types of traffic, paid and free. If you want traffic the same or the next day, there are many pay per click (PPC) system on the market today. Just go to your browser and type in pay per click and there will a list of sites that do this. If you want free traffic on the other hand this will take time. You need to promote your anchor tag (keyword) and start building one way links to your site. Don’t forget to add valuable content to your website, this is important. Over time as you continue to build links, traffic will start arriving to your website. I did a test to see how fast I could build 100 visitors of traffic to my site. I wrote 20 articles over a 3 month period and submitted them to article submitters. At the end of 3 months I was receiving 150 to 200 visitors a day to my website.

It all depends on how much you put into your business. If you are passionate about what you are doing the traffic will come to your website. Keep going and do not give up, your success is right around the corner.

Are You Doing What You Love?

Are You Doing What You Love?

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. –Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965)

We are busier than we have ever been, working long hours and feeling under more and more pressure. How do you spend your days? For many people work and pleasure are seen as separate, with work being a chore that has to be done to pay the bills. It doesn’t always have to be like that. Although we don’t have to love everything we do, we do need to gain some enjoyment from most of what we do. Take a moment to see if it is time to start afresh and do something you love, something that adds the pleasure factor back into your working life?

Think about what matters to you and why you do the things you do. For each person that means something different. What aspects of a job are important to you? List them. Think about your dream job. Does it motivate and inspire you? If not, think again. It has to mean something to you; otherwise you will not be prepared to put in the effort to achieve what you want. Ask: ‘What am I prepared to give up to make this happen?’ ‘What would I love to try?’ ‘What options do I have?’ ‘What are my talents, skills and qualities?’ ‘How can I utilise them in my ideal job?’ How can you take an idea and turn it into reality? Get creative and think through how you could make money doing what you enjoy.

Starting anew requires courage, confidence and commitment. Hold on to your sense of purpose. Believe in yourself. Ignore the critics, for there are bound to be some, and face your fears (there will many of those too!). Ask for help from those people who can assist you and get supporters to keep you motivated. Research things that interest you and, if necessary, go back to basics and learn new skills. Develop a clear vision of where you’d like to be in 10 years’ time – and why. Write it down. Be specific. This will provide you with something to focus on. Think creatively. This may not happen all of a sudden, but if you work at it gradually, day by day, it can happen.

And if starting something new is not for you, how can you love the job you already have? You can’t always control your situation, but you can always choose how you react to it. Your attitude colours how you face every day and has an influence on the people around you. Choose to be positive. Are there areas of your job that you can improve on? Who can you discuss this with? Is a change to a new role in the same company an option? Examine the possibilities. Your job does not define you, but how you do it does.

And why bother? Doing what you love gives you a good reason to get up every morning. Your life will be challenging, certainly, exciting, definitely. Doing things you enjoy which give you personal fulfilment and satisfaction has been shown to contribute to good health and longevity. Don’t wait for perfect circumstances to start. Begin now!
