When life gives you lemons, you have a couple of different options either make lemonade or suck on lemons. If you suck on lemons, then you might definitely take care of some old world illnesses. The better option is to make lemonade in where you convert the lemons with a little sugar and water. This is a short lived solution but it is a sweet use of the lemon. One other option is to plant the seeds to help grow more lemon trees, thereby ensuring that others will be able to use the lemons in the future. This act of using what you have is similar to not accepting status quo, but having a desire to do better in your life. You might be dealt a certain hand in life, but you don’t have to keep playing it. It is one thing to want to put your life in a better position, but consistent actions are required to implement your desires.
You may relate this transformation of the lemons to your life. The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expect different results. If you continue to accept life and complain about making changes,yet never doing anything, then your life will continue to be the same. The more you set goals and dream big the better your lemonade will taste once you gather the ingredients to make it. The right amount of sugar and lemons is dependent on how much you put in. Consistent effort is needed on a daily basis to help you achieve your goals.
The policy of only giving a new business opportunity a “try” will never work. The “try” normally last less than 30 days and most people quit and move on to the next “shiny object”. It is much better to select a business that you like and feel good about. Once you have a business, then the next step is to write your goals, commit to them and go after them using consistent and deliberate effort. The feeling of accomplishment is indescribable when you achieve the goals that you set for yourself.
Some people want to be a billionaire, millionaire, live with no money worries or just be the best teacher that they could become. Success is not always about the amount of money that we want in our bank account. Achieving success might be a professional, personal or even being the best dad that you can be. The definition of success is different from person to person which is synonmous with the level of tartness in your lemonade. The perfect tasting lemonade is different for each individual person. Your lemonade might be sweeter, than mine. It does not mean that your taste preference is better or worse than mine. The level of success(taste preference) varies from person to person. The key is to take what life give you and make it better for you. I hate the taste of just sucking on lemons for the rest of my life, so transform your lemons.
P.S. You have put off your goals and dreams for far to long. Don’t let procrastination the deadly enemy of success keep you from achieving them any longer. I wrote a blog post regarding procrastination a while back read about it here.
The new Year gives us a renew energy to achieve some lofty goals and dreams. You started the journey earlier this year with a passion that is bigger than your heart desire. The year is half way gone, Are you on track for your goals? If you are not on track then some investigation is needed. It is time to reassess, reevaluate and readjust your goals for the rest of the year. The problem with not achieving our goals is that we psych ourself out. We spend more time beating yourself up mentally and gave up on our dreams. The fact remains is that you still have six months left in the years. The last thing you want to do is waste torturing your mind that yuou are not where you want to be. Don’t drop the ball and lose your focus. The most race in our childhood was won by the least unexpected victor.
The hare and tortoise had a race, who do you think should win? If my memory serve me it was the tortoise that won the race. The hare was fast and cocky,but the tortoise was slow and steady. It is not always the swift that wins the race. The person who is consistent and steady in his or her actions on a daily basis. If you are the hare, then let us slow down a little. If you are the tortoise, then let make it more efficient in our actions. The key to accomplishing your goals is adjusting your daily mode of operation.
What are some of things that you can change on a daily basis that will help you with your goals? You must spend your time on money making activity. If whatever you are doing does not help you achieve yuor goals then stop it or minimize it immediately. For example, you start watching one movie on television and before you know it four hours goes by. The stars on television are living their goals and dreams and you watching them are only helping them more. Turn off the television and focus on your goals. The year is not over yet so let travel to the finish line.
You are back on track with your goals and dreams for year. The next thing that we must do is to never allow the fear of criticism to steal our dreams. The comments from your friend and family are not to be taken seriuosly as long as you stay focus. Ignore it and use the negativity as a motivator for your attaining your achievements..
Self empowering phrases that are used daily may be motivating in your life, business and relationships. One of my favorites is that the universe is conspiring to bring everything that I desire to me. It does not have to be a mantra, just a powerful statement that you recite on a daily basis. The more you recite the more it will become an integral part of you.
When you were a kid you heard a lot of different phrases from you parent. “If you lie down with dogs you will end up with fleas.” You understand right away the point that they were trying to get across. The best thing to do is make your empowering phrase simple, but powerful. When you look at life they are many things that are easy to do, but there are not simple to accomplish. It is easy like your parents warn you not to hang out with “bad company” and you do it anyway. It is not simple to get out of prison or get the stink of distrust associated with your name and character. The more these statements become part of your life the stronger it becomes a part of your psyche.
The universe is always conspiring to give me whatever I desire. I am not limiting the Universe from bringing great things into my life. I am allowing the Universe to do everything in its power to satisfy my hearts’ desires. The key to any phrase that you use is that you must believe that it will happen. If I allow any doubt, then the Universe will not conspire for my well being. The other powerful statement that I like to repeat aloud or in my mind is the “everything is going to turn out all right, I dont know how, but I know everything will turn out alright”.
This might seem like a simple statement, but when everything that can go wrong goes wrong and you see no way that you can get out of all the craziness. It is good to know that as long as you believe everything will turn out alright. The best self empowering phrase is one that you truly believe will happen and continue to happen. The last thing makes it possible is to write the statement down on a daily basis. The more it is written down the more it becomes part of you.
The best way to unlock the Law of Attraction is check how you are feeling at the moment. It might seem magical, but you may unlock the Law of Attraction in no time flat by checking this one thing. How do you feel emotionally? The Law of Attraction is one of the oldest law that works rather you are aware of it or not. It works best when you keep track of how you feel. If you are feeling good, then everything that you send out to the Universe will come back to you positively. The reverse is true also if you are feeling bad, then you would receive negative in kind. The law of attraction gives you more of what you want and also give you everything you don’t want. You have to very specific about what you are focusing on.\
The vibration, whether positive or negative, that you send out is return back to you from the Universe. If you send out a negative vibe, then negativity will come back to you. Doing a self check of how you feel is the best way to know whether the law of attraction will align with you. I was listening to my daily personal development tape the other day. Micheal Losier stated that “if you want to know how you much you know about handling your finance open your wallet”. The Law of Attraction works exactly the same if you want to see if it is working check your attitude.
The Law of Attraction is magical when you break it down to the simplest form. Gravity works rather you are aware of it or not. The Law of Attraction works the exact way how many times have you thought about a friend and the phone rings and it is that person. “You can learn to mold the Energy that creates worlds through the focus of the mind.” as written by “Ask and it is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks. The better that you are at controlling your emotion the better you would be at having the Universe work for you in your life.
P.S If you like to read more about #1 key to the law of attraction which I wrote back in 2009 on my blog. The truth is that this law of attraction is very similar to the Law of Conservation of Energy which states that Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be transformed.
I read somewhere about an experiment about a frog and boiling water. If the frog jumped into hot boiling water he would automatically jump out. If he is in the water and you slowly raise the temperature he would never notice and would be cooked alive. He died because he got more comfortable as the temperature became warmer. I think this is the equivalent of living your life without taking chances. When we are young we are told to get a job at a company until we retire.
When you first start working most of the time you don’t have many responsibilities. We have the ability to make changes without as much discomfort. The older we get the more responsibilties we accumulate and it is more difficult to make major shift in our life, business and relationships. You must become accustomed to feeling uncomfortable to make significant changes in your life. If you are comfortable in your life, then you are not trying anything different. A place of uncertainty is normally when we are doing, learning or achieving something that we have never done previously. What is your level of comfort?
If your level of comfort makes you smile and you are contented, then no change is necessary. If you are on the other spectrum like me, then you must make a decision to be uncomfortable in striving to make your life better. Just because you have had your job for many years does not mean that you have to stay there until you die. It is never too late to make changes that will make you happier. The law of attraction works better when you are in a better frame of mind. The universe move mountains to help you achieve your goals when you send positive vibration. Make the decision to be uncomfortable and watch how your life will change for the better. I am talking about being the best you that you can ever be. The only time that we coast is downhill, going up the hill takes a little work.
I was doing my daily reading of “Ask and It Is Given Learning to Manifest Your Desires” by Esther and Jerry Hicks and I came across this quote “you only hear what you are ready to hear.” It got me to thinking about this statement in depth. It reminds me that you might think you know what is best for someone. How many people in your life dish out advice to you? How much of that advice do you actually follow? The truth is that only if it relates to you.
We only hear what we want when we are ready for it. When you read a book in its entirety for the first time, you gain a certain perspective. The amazing thing is if you put that book down and read it again six months later. You will pickup different ideas and another perspective in the second reading. The book had the same amount of pages and the version was not revised. The book did not change, it was the reader of the book that changed. You are the one that changed.
We change with every “book” we read and everyone that we interact with. Books includes media, music we listen to, video that we watch or any interactive. When we take in these different forms of “books” into your psyche our personality is formed. The key is that your personality changes on a daily basis. You have no idea how a book will impact you at the time of reading a book.
You are not going accept or make changes in your life unless you are ready to do it. You might have good intention family members who always tell you how to live your life. These family members could talk until they are blue in the face. You would not make changes until you are ready. The pressure to make decision about your life might be strong and overbearing. We only hear what we what to hear when we want to hear it and accept it. Change is good when it is based on what is better for you.
One degree adjustment is all it takes to be successful in your business. When you are struggling in your business. The best way to move your business in a positive direction is all about small changes. Most of the races in a horse race is won be a nose. The winner gets about ten times the prize money of the second place horse. The combination of the horse and jockey enjoyed the benefits of the small margin of victory. This is synonymous with making slight adjustments in your daily mode of operation in your business.
When you are doing a function in your business dont focus on the big picture. If you send out ten mailing daily increase it to eleven daily mailing. The one extra mailing might seem insignificant, but that works out to be 260 extra mailings. If your open rate is ten percent, then you would have twenty-six more chances to make a sale. The best way to turn everything in your favor is to change the way you do thing one step at a time. Most people are paralyzed in fear when they make changes to every aspect of their business at the same time.
It is all about the action and adjusting accordingly. When you make the move you will learn more about whether you are moving in the right direction or not. If you are making the incorrect decision, then you make different choices. The beautiful thing about this time of year is that everyone are filled with New Year Resolutions. The problem is that most resolutions only last about as long as a snowflake in the wind. Your long distance journey will never be completed until you make the first step. You may put off the first step, but nothing happens until you do something.

A neglected mind will bring forth no seed without a doubt. The saying goes that you reap what you sow. The biggest mistake you could make is thinking you are going to get something out of nothing. “A man’s mind may be likened to a garden which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild;” from “As a Man Thinketh“. When your lawn is full of weeds, the less weeds you pull the worse your lawn would look. You would never be able to keep your garden free of weeds and maintain a healthy soil that is conducive for a beautiful garden at that pace. It is extremely critical that you follow all the necessary guidelines to maintain your lawn.
Personal development is one of the best way to prepare your mind for whatever your goals or dreams that you are trying to achieve. It is who you become in the journey that matters. The lotto winner that wins millions , but is financially broke in a few short years. Who did that lotto winner become in picking the winning number?
The lotto winner goal every time he or she played they favorite lotto numbers was to win the lotto. The only requirement that necessary was to make sure that you had a ticket in each lottery drawing. If you missed a drawing you might have a little stress, but once the numbers were drawn the stress goes away. The only thing you would learn is to make sure you played your numbers in a timely manner. Once the person wins the lotto how did they changed in the journey. The answer is not much, so it is no surprise when the money is gone in a short time. When you are committed to accomplishing your goals and dreams, every setback is an opportunity for a learning experience.
The difference between when a lotto player misses a lotto drawing and when you make a misstep in your business is substantial. The lotto player learns nothing while you can learn, adjust and correct your journey in accomplishing your goals and dreams. The more your mind is cultivated in preparing for success the better. The lawn of an abandon home is not as well manicured as one that is getting proper water, fertilizer, mowing and weed control.

Why did I move up to the Monopoly level in D$Domination? When I joined D$Domination in November of 2013, I had no idea that it would grows so rapidly. I started with the Pro level and I followed the program as directed in the training videos. The program is simple cut, paste, list and ship. I made me twenty dollars investment back within the first month easily. Click on the link to learn more about D$Domination. I kept listing as many products that I could daily. The more you list on Ebay the better chance you have to sell more items. I also kept calling Ebay to get my limits raised. I decided to become an affiliate and moving up to the Elite level. I was able to make a profit and more each month.
The key to success has always been following the training as it was dictated in the training video. I was also a regular on the weekly Wednesday calls at 8 and 10 P.m without fail. It was all about learning and applying what I learned. The introduction of Ebay Global shipping program added about 20% to 30% more sales on a monthly basis. Cash back is a beautiful thing so imagine selling a $16.99 product and making $14.63 profit. The knowledge that you get from these different levels makes your pricing more competitive.
When it was time I move up to Unleashed to made even more money. We always want to make more money and provide even better for our family. The saying is that knowledge is power, but actually it is the application of knowledge that is power. The knowledge that I acquired and applied at that point got me to the point that I am now. This is the first time in my six year internet marketing career that I am making profits on a consistent basis. It is time to scale my business up now that i know what I am doing. I decided last weekend to upgrade to Monopoly.
Monopoly is by far the best program that I have used in D$Domination. The first day that I watch the videos in Monopoly I realized that it ties everything together and will take my business to another level. I am now able to add the gigantic sales haven that is Amazon to my arsenal. The possibility of multiply sales of the same item is to difficult to not pursuit. I will make a video series of my progress in the coming weeks.
