The Keys To Success In Business

The Keys To Success In Business
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.careerfromhome.org

Success in business has nothing whatsoever to do with
salesmanship, little to do with knowledge of your
company’s products or services.

It is owing to some far more basic fundamental principles
which will determine your success or failure at anything
you do in life.

They are your A,B,Cs, Attitude, Belief and Consistency.
Taking them in reverse order.

Consistency
We get up every morning, we brush our teeth wash, get
dressed have breakfast. We are consistent in our actions.
We do it every day. We need to do the same in being
consistent with our tasks associated with our business
for the days that we have chosen we are going to work,
be it 1 or 7 days a week. We need the 6 marbles in our
left pocket or left side of our bag and transfer 1
marble to the other side every time we have carried
out a positive action i.e. seeing a customer, talking
to someone about the business, etc. We need to do
it consistently. We need to have transferred all 6 marbles
(better still 10) by the end of the day. We need to
concentrate on the actions not on the result. I’ll repeat
that, we need to concentrate on the actions not on the
results.

When we go mountain climbing, if we would continually
look at the summit we would soon trip up and fall. We
need to concentrate on every step at a time, one after
the other and as surely as the sun goes down we will
reach our summit.

Belief
An absolute and genuine belief in our business, its products
and services and what it can give its customers.

Attitude
Possibly the most important of these three but useless on its
own. It’s no good having the best attitude in the world if ones
sitting on ones own in a closed room not talking to anyone. So
what is attitude apart from how one feels about oneself and
others. I describe it like this.

Your face is transparent, totally transparent and your attitude
shines through whether its positive or negative. The first second
that a prospective customer sees you maybe even before you
see him, your attitude comes through. The customer sees it, maybe
only subconsciously and will react accordingly. We all know that
the first thing any salesperson has to sell is themselves even
before they open their mouth. If they can’t sell themselves they
might as well turn round and go home and go back to bed. If they
can’t sell themselves they wouldn’t be able to sell packet of peanuts
or a Mars bar.

So when we get up in the morning and do our consistency things lets
get a really big warm smile from within feeling good about ourselves
and keep that all day. When we go about our business we need to keep
out good attitude with us. If we can’t also be in the place where we
are physically there’s no point being there in the first place. Its
easier to ride a horse in the direction that its going.

So those are my 3 all important ingredients that determine ones
success or failure at anything in life.

Is a Home Business Right For You?

Is a Home Business Right For You?
Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy
http://www.PlugInProfitSite.com/main-9526

Every morning as people wake up and make the commute to work,
many dream of the day when they will finally work for
themselves. Every time the boss lets someone know that they must
give up their weekend plans for the good of the company, people
contemplate the benefits of being the owner of their own
business.

Are you one of these people?

If you are, it is important to ask yourself some very important
questions before you make the uncertain leap into
self-employment.

Many dream of the benefits of home business ownership, but few
take into account the sacrifices that must be made to bring the
dream to fruition. Please don’t make this mistake yourself.

You must approach home business ownership with your eyes wide
open. Ask yourself the important questions, and more
importantly, answer your own questions openly and honestly.

AN IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION

Are you the type of person who relishes every chance to gather
around the water cooler for social interaction?

If so, then home business ownership may not be the right
decision for you.

Instead, if you feel that you can be quite content sitting alone
at your desk; speaking only to clients and really minding your
own home business, then you might have what it takes to succeed
as a home business entrepreneur.

If you feel at ease with your own company and don’t need a dozen
coworkers milling around your desk, then you, too, could savor
the freedoms that will allow you and your family, to live the
lifestyle you know you want and deserve.

THE KEY TO HOME BUSINESS SUCCESS

Self-motivation is the key to success when you start a
home-based business. You need to possess the ability to push
yourself ahead. Your drive and determination will be reinforced
with every new sale.

The level of success that you will achieve greatly depends on
the time and effort you are willing to plow into your new home
business. Your organization, planning and marketing skills, will
all be put into practice when you embark on your liberating
journey from employee, to being your own boss. In fact, you will
be the wearer of many hats and gain a wealth of business
experience along the way, when you finally make that commitment
to work at home.

YOUR SUCCESS RESTS ENTIRELY UPON YOUR OWN SHOULDERS

You will now be the boss. Are you truly able to work
independently? Do you have the drive; the tenacity, to persevere
with your home based business? Will you be able to invest the
necessary time to nurture it, to watch it grow and see it
through, from germination to full, glorious bloom? When you’re
the boss, you are responsible for the success of your home
business, from A to Z, from disappointments to victory.

When you work at home, it will empower you to achieve many
things you were unable to do when you were stuck working for
that tyrant boss. Remember him? He’s the guy that wouldn’t let
you take time off when your baby was sick…the same guy that
called you in to work on Thanksgiving Day.

A home business means that you can take good care of your family
and make money from home, simultaneously. You will have the best
of both worlds! Just think–no more dirty laundry piling up–you
can do it while you work. No more scurrying around at the last
minute searching for a babysitter either. And no more worrying
about getting fired; you’ll be the boss!

IN CONCLUSION…

Stay positive and focused on your home based business, even if,
when sales aren’t up to par, you get occasional negative remarks
or derogatory comments from people with stuffy, dead-end jobs.
Ignore their cutting words and bear in mind that success is the
best revenge! Keep your admirable, positive attitude at the
forefront and show them what you’re made of!

Email Marketing Evolved!

The Changing Pace of Advertising

The Changing Pace of Advertising
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.careerfromhome.org

Rapid advances in technology have changed everything from
health care to communication. Now, as the latest technology
becomes more accessible to a broader market, the advertising
field is changing, too. Years ago, you could plan your
advertising campaign around a few television commercials
and print advertisements. And most companies would never
have considered spending a sizeable portion of their
advertising budget on the Internet. But in 2006, online
ad expenditures are expected to reach over $16 billion.

Advertisers who want to reach their target audience and
remain competitive in this high-tech world have to change
with the times. You need to keep up with emerging
technologies, what media types are most popular, and how
consumers use what’s available to them.

If you want to stay current and advertise your products
and services in ways that reach your target audience on
their turf, consider the following forms of emerging
media.

1. Blogs

Blog is short for “web log,” online journals that people
without any HTML knowledge can create easily from any
computer. They are frequently updated and usually include
the owner’s thoughts or musings on topics ranging from
what’s happening in the news to what they wear to work.

Companies or individuals can keep blogs. Company blogs
usually promote products in what is known as an “adverblog.”
However, those blogs started by individuals without a
commercial affiliation usually have more credibility.

About fifty million people keep blogs. And many different
categories exist, including travel, health, and business.
Blogs are popular because they provide a concise summary
of news and information and give users power by providing
information all in one place and on a timely basis. A blog
dedicated to heart health, for example, will likely pull
information from sources all over the Internet, so someone
surfing for heart health information doesn’t have to search
several sites for the most up-to-date research about the
topic; they can find everything they need on a heart health
blog.

As far as advertising on blogs, ads are generally related
to the blog topic. That heart health blog could be an
excellent place to advertise a health food or exercise
product. If you’re interested in advertising on blogs,
first look for help from marketing companies that measure
hot blog topics and provide market research based on blog
content.

2. Podcasts

Podcasts deliver digital audio and video files to a user
via the Internet. The name comes from the iPod, but they
aren’t just for iPod users. A pod cast is an audio file
in MP3 format that a consumer can download to their iPod,
MP3 player, or computer. Then the person can listen to it
over and over again, share it with friends, and save it on
a computer’s hard drive.

Six million people have downloaded podcasts, according to
the Pew Internet and American Life Project. And of the
twenty-two-million iPod owners, twenty-nine percent have
downloaded podcasts.

Podcasts are an emerging media form that will continue to
grow, and as this media outlet increases in popularity,
the advertising possibilities will grow as well. Viacom,
Disney, and Clear Channel all have radio-type podcasts,
and even print media outlets use podcasts to broadcast
interviews and other audio supplements to their print
stories. For example, you can read an issue of a magazine
and listen to an interview in its entirety on the magazine’s
website.

3. Gaming

Sixty-eight out of 108 million households currently play
video and computer games, according to the “Digital Gaming
in America” Ziff Davis report of August 2005. Advertisers
can reach this market, which is mostly composed of young
males, in two ways.

First, advertisers can use gaming technology to insert
their ads in popular games. For example, say you are
playing a football video game on your XBOX 360. You’ll
see ads placed on the sidelines and on the scoreboard
just like you would if you were in a real football stadium
or watching a real game on television. Video games are also
played online, allowing gamers to compete with opponents in
other parts of the world. These games offer many opportunities
to place logos and products that a huge audience will see.

Another way to advertise using games is literally to create
your own game that the consumer can play online. This is
commonly referred to as Advergaming. Many companies, such
as Lipton and Mountain Dew, have used this advertising
technique. The greatest benefit of these games is that they
get people involved in the brand. Game designers create these
games to interest a particular target audience, such as young
children. Be aware, though, if you’re marketing to kids, to
closely monitor the game’s content.

4. Mobile Advertising

Nearly 199 million people in the United States subscribe to
mobile phone services. And every phone produced in the last
year is capable of accessing the Internet. What does this mean
for advertisers? It’s another method for reaching the target
audience. People now use mobile phones to search the Internet,
play games, and instant message as well as to access sports
scores, learn breaking news, and even check out horoscopes.

Mobile advertising presents a great means to reach the high
school and college student markets with banner and video ads.
Currently, mobile ads are simple and usually text banners.
But down the road, as this technology continues to advance,
cell phones may be capable of displaying television ads.
However, this media outlet is not without limitations.
Everything in your ad has to be cleared by the phone company,
so you must consider the logistical aspects of placing mobile
ads.

The High-Tech Future of Advertising

If you want to remain competitive in the future, technology
will be key to your success. You should consider these four,
and other new types, of digital media when putting together
any advertising strategy, because traditional media outlets
just aren’t as effective as they once were. While it’s
difficult to predict exactly where the trends are headed,
when you keep an eye on new technology, you and your service
won’t be left behind.

Strategies For Successful Business Networking

Strategies For Successful Business Networking
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.careerfromhome.org

There are a variety of organizations that run networking
groups across the country. The largest group is probably
BNI, which offers members the chance to attend weekly
meetings and develop new professional relationships to
help them grow their business. some chambers of commerce
are now organizing “leads groups” for their members as
well. These groups are intended to offer members a way
to connect with each other and potentially refer each
other business.

In most “leads groups” each group allows no more than one
representative from any industry, so if the group has a
mortgage broker other mortgage brokers have to join
another group or wait for the seat to open up. The idea
is that by restricting membership, you eliminate
competition within the group.

The agenda at most structured networking meetings is
pretty straightforward. Each member is given an
opportunity to introduce themselves, then there is a
short presentation by one or two members (each member
gets the chance eventually). The meeting ends with
members discussing potential referrals for each other.
This means that most of the members get about one minute
to present who they are and teach the other members of
the group how to refer to them.

Most people do a great job of presenting themselves.
However, most people do not think to ask for referrals.
At most networking events, you are not expected to ask
for a referral or explain what a good referral for you
is. However, at a leads group it is not only acceptable,
it is expected!

I am involved in a number of networking groups and have
used the simple outline below to create my elevator pitch
(quick introduction). When I deliver my elevator pitch to
a leads group, my goal is to educate everyone in the room
about my company and what I do, as well as to teach them
the best way to refer others to me. In addition, I want
to make sure I actually ask for a specific referral. I
will go through each piece of the outline in detail, but
here are the basics.

* Introduction
o Name
o Position company name
o Location of the company
o Overview of services
* Tell a story
* Call to action

The introduction piece of your presentation should stay
the same every time you give it. You might say something
like, “My name is Joe Smith. I am mortgage broker at ABC
mortgages in Anytown, USA. We offer a full line of
residential and commercial mortgage products.” You can
add some additional detail, but you should really focus
on keeping this short and on point.

At each meeting, you will have the chance to differentiate
yourself from the competition by telling a short story
during your presentation. The story can be related to a
specific challenge you helped a client overcome, a unique
feature of your product or service, or you can simply talk
about a new development at your company. Consider writing
out your stories in advance so you know what you are going
to say at each meeting. In addition, you can schedule the
content so that the other members of your group learn more
and more about you at each meeting. You need to focus on
educating your group a little more each week.

The “call to action” is very important and the piece that
most people overlook. You need to tell the other members
of your group exactly what type of referral you are looking
for. For example, our mortgage broker, Joe Smith, might say,
“Today a good referral for me would be a Realtor at XYZ real
estate company.” Joe may also say, “Today a good referral for
me would be anyone who purchased their home more then
10 years ago.”

I always recommend that your “call to action” is as specific as
possible. If Joe stands up and says that a good referral would
be anyone who needs a mortgage, the rest of the group will have
a harder time thinking of people to refer. If Joe asks for an
introduction to a specific person at a specific company,
someone in the group may know that person or know someone at
that company who can facilitate Joe’s introduction. The more
specific the request, the more likely it is to trigger someone
else in the group’s memory.

A last-minute hint:

Keep focused on the networks of the people in the group, not on
the people themselves. In other words, when you are participating
in a networking or leads group, you should not focus on gaining
the business of the people at the table. Instead, you should focus
on gaining their trust so that they will refer you people in their
network.

Time For A Career Change

Time For A Career Change
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.careerfromhome.org

Did you know that the average person changes their career
six times in their working life? There are many different
reasons why a person would decide to switch careers- they
may be laid off at their current job, a dream job may come
along, people in a committed relationship may find
themselves having to consider new prospects due to a change
in location of the job of the other partner, or someone may
just become plain bored in their current career, to the
point where it feels like there is no point to the day.
Career changes are not a bad thing, but they need to be
planned according to the circumstances of your life, in such
a way that you will still have the funds coming in which you
need to survive.

Most of us will spend our lives hoping for the ideal job,
but this will rarely materialize. The fact is, almost all
jobs have their pitfalls- we may scoff at actors of
musicians who complain about their long workdays or
schedules, pointing to their pay checks, but the fact is
that many jobs that offer lucrative incomes also entail a
lot of dedication and hard work in order to get to the top.
When you are defining your dream job, remember that almost
every job comes with its downside, even if that downside is
only the repetitiveness of the day.

A career change does not necessarily have to entail extensive
retraining. Many people who have lost their jobs through
layoffs or downsizing will find that their skills are still in
demand, and that their experience is very useful in finding a
new career. If you do not feel like retraining, consider a job
with a different company where your skills fit. If you want to
get right out of the corporate area, the odds are good that you
can find a niche for yourself as an independent consultant or
another area in which your expertise will add to your
marketability.

Some people decide that they in fact do desire a total 360 degree
turn from their current career path. In such circumstances, it is
again best to begin by shopping the skills obtained at your former
job only applied to new markets. You may also want to consider some
retraining through college or university courses. There are many
training courses available online, so people often do not even have
to leave their homes in order to obtain the skills necessary to
their new careers.

Whatever your decision, remember that it is always easier to find
a new job when you are not desperate for one. Take the time to think
through your decisions and applications carefully before severing
ties with your current job; you may be ready for a change, but you
will still have to eat in the meantime! In the event that your company
has been downsized or other circumstance that has led to being laid
off, find out if there are any contingency plans in place for
retraining through the company or through any of the levels of
government. This can provide a good financial buffer for that
in-between time.

Basic Writing Skills Are Essential

Basic Writing Skills Are Essential

http://www.careerfromhome.org

Why Basic Writing Skills are Essential for Your Business
success

Few organizations exist in order to communicate. Most have
another purpose…to sell a product or service, to supply
a social need , to implement plans and policies. Yet to do
those things, organizations spend an enormous amount of
time, energy and money communicating.

People in organizations communicate in many ways :
face-to-face in two person discussions, in informal groups,
in meetings, by email, in old-fashioned letters or memos
and in reports.

All of these methods are verbal communications, or
communications that uses words. Nonverbal communication
does not use words . Pictures, computer graphics and
company logos are examples of non – verbal communications.
Interpersonal nonverbal signals including smiles, who sits
where at a meeting, the size, location and window access
of an office and how long someone keeps a visitor waiting.

Studies have found that people generally spend 70 to 85 %
of their work time deliberately communicating, writing,
reading, speaking and listening. Often most of an
executive’s day is spent in communication modes.

Your technical skill whether it be in accounting, marketing,
sales or computer technology may get you your first job.
The ability to speak and write effectively may help you keep
it as well as prosper. A major study showed that the inability
to write was a major reason that accounts were fired As you
rise in an organization, technical skills matter less and
more general skills including the ability to write and speak
will determine how fast and far you go.

Most students understand the importance of effective oral
communication skills. But some are not convinced that they
need to be able to write well to succeed professionally.
They may think that a secretary or technical writer will
do their writing, or think that they can use form letters
if they have to write. Each of these claims has fundamental
flaws in their logic.

Today, many workers in business and government still have
their letters, memos and reports typed on a computer by
someone else.

However this situation is changing rapidly as more and more
business’s realize the economy and simplicity of the
prevalence and standardization of computerized office
software packages.

You may be lucky to still have someone else type out your
letters. However this is not going to last long. And the
best secretary, cannot compensate for fundamental errors
in organization, logic, audience, analysis or tone.

Sometimes you may finish a letter after five o’clock.
Sometimes you may need to work on weekends or be ” on
the road “. You will most likely need to put the
finishing touches on a report that is due at 9 a.m.
Monday. The ability to write well makes you much more
independent and versatile.

You may think that you can use form letters that are
widely available for the office software packages.

A form letter is a pre-written fill-in-the-blank setup
designed to fit standard situations. The writer can
personalize a form letter or report by having it
individually filled out with the recipients.

Using a form letter is Ok but some of those available
are dreadful and will leave a very bad impression
of you .

Even good form letters cover only routine situations.
The higher you rise in your organization, the more
frequently you will face situations that are not
routine and demand creative and more specific
solutions. If you develop the skills necessary for
good writing and original thinking, you are far more
likely to realize your potential and reach your career
goals.

Many people in business and government routinely write
from 10 pages of letters and memos a week and in some
cases it not uncommon for 20 to 35 pages a day. Most
people find speaking easier than writing. The phone is
faster and usually cheaper than a letter or memo.
Email is of course is among the cheapest means to
communicate both in time spent in delivery,
effectiveness and cost.

People in organizations put things in writing, rather
than depend exclusively on oral communication to create
a record, to convey complex data, to make a message
to multiple recipients succinctly, efficiently and
effectively.

Work At Home Options

Work At Home Options
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.careerfromhome.org

Work At Home Options – Determining Which Is Best
For You

When you first decide you’d like to work at home,
you may be tempted to search for a telecommuting
job or join a home business opportunity right away.
There are certainly benefits to those options, but
stop and think for a moment, “Is that the right
choice for me?”

While there are some great companies and programs out
there, it’s important to evaluate your true needs and
desires in a home-based career. I see too many people
jumping into the first opportunity they see, simply
because it promises great income. Money is definitely
a major part of our reason for working, but is it the
most important? You need to choose the option that will
serve all of your needs, not just the financial ones.

How do you know which option is best for you? Consider
the typical qualities of telecommuting jobs, home business
opportunities and home businesses started from scratch:

Telecommuting Jobs

Pros – With jobs you will usually have less responsibility
than a home business, plus a steady paycheck and a
structured work schedule. If you are very efficient,
organized and “production-oriented”, this could be a good
choice for you.

Cons – You will have less flexibility and freedom than you
would with a home business. You will not be encouraged to
“do it your way” — you will instead need to follow your
employer’s instructions. Your workload is not guaranteed.
Business can slow down and you’ll have no work to do, which
means no income. You will usually earn less from a
telecommuting job than you would from a home business. If
you are very creative and free-spirited, and you want to
earn a big income, a job might not be right for you.

Home Business Opportunities

Pros – More flexibility and freedom than a job, more
opportunity for larger income (if you’re motivated), less
chance for business to slow down (since you generate your
own business), benefit from being part of a team of like-
minded people that support you and help you to grow your
business. No need to create your own products and marketing
materials, as the company provides them for you.

Cons – Still less flexibility and freedom than starting your
own business, as the company may have restrictions on how you
run your business, how you can promote, etc. You may have
sales quotas you need to meet, or other limitations. Choosing
a company that has been around for a long time may result in
over-saturation of the market, while choosing a newer company
may result in instability or the company going out of business.

Your Own Company

Pros – Complete freedom and flexibility in the products you
create or services you offer, as well as the ways in which
you choose to market. No quotas to meet, build it big or
keep it small. Set your own schedule and determine your own
income. Be as creative as you wish.

Cons – Great responsibility. You are the President, CEO,
General Manager, Sales Director, Marketing Manager, Production
Manager, Comptroller, Personnel Director and everything else
for your company. No one else is there to help or cheer you
on, it’s all up to you.

There are certainly exceptions to the qualities listed above.
Perhaps you can find a great telecommuting job that allows you
complete flexibility and creative work. Maybe some of the “cons”
I listed above would actually be considered “pros” to you, or
vice versa.

What it comes down to is what YOU want. What works best for you?
Make a list of what’s important to you. How much do you want to
earn? How creative are you? How flexible do you want your schedule
to be? What type of work makes you feel most happy?

Build a vision in your mind of the perfect work at home career for
you. And then go about finding (or creating) just that!

How to Stay Focused on Your Home Business Goals

How to Stay Focused on Your Home Business Goals
Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy
http://www.PlugInProfitSite.com/main-9526

When you are the owner of a home business, you will find
hundreds of distractions that vie for your time, energy and
focus.

Common distractions include: children, family, friends,
neighbors, pets, phone calls, mail, household chores, video
games, television, neighborhood children, visitors, and so many
more.

As an owner of a home based business, you must always remember
your purpose in bringing your profession home. What was your
reason for wanting to own a home business? Was your goal to work
from home so that you can share in the lives of your children?
Was your goal to be out from under the rule of a tyrannical
boss? Was your goal to have the freedom to work when it is
convenient for you? Was your goal to make tons of money working
for yourself?

Here’s a few good tips that will help you stay focused on your
home business:

TIP #1:
Whatever your reason for going out on your own, you must keep
your reason in the forefront of your mind. If you forget your
reason for starting your own home business, you will not be
working for yourself for long. It is far too easy to let
circumstance drive your activities — and when circumstance is
in the driver’s seat, you are more likely to crash and burn.

TIP #2:
Remember — your own business is a lot like a real job. Some
people go to work to play, some go to socialize, and others —
most often those who are paid in a commission or tip environment
— go to work to work and to make money. When you work for
yourself, your salary is directly proportional to your
productivity. Therefore, wouldn’t it make sense to stay focused
on getting as much done in as short of a period as possible?

Go to work to work and to make money. Leave playtime and
recreation for when your workday has ended.

TIP #3:
When you are dealing with family in the course of your workday,
it is important to schedule your activities as much as possible.
With small children, you must take time when you must, but you
should also work hard to make sure you dedicate a specific
number of hours to your workday.

With older children, it is much easier to tell them that you
will be working between the hours of x and y. Your children and
your friends must understand that certain hours of your day are
devoted to the activities of your business.

TIP #4:
Don’t permit your friends and extended family to run over you.
Many people get the blind idea that if one works from home then
they are not actually working.

Well-meaning people may try to fill your doorway to bring advice
about getting a real job. Others may simply believe that if you
are at home, then you are fair game for chitchat and
socialization.

You must stand firm. You must make certain your friends and
family understands that when you are working, then you ARE
working! If they wish to socialize with you, then they need to
do it during the hours that are not dedicated to your home
business.

You are the only one who can stand up for you. Your friends and
family will seldom be able to appreciate your dedication to your
home business, unless you make the effort to make sure that they
have the same respect for your business that you do.

TIP #5:
You should allot a certain portion of your day to email and to
regular mail. For example, allot one hour in the morning and one
hour in the afternoon to handling your written communications.

Unless you dedicate certain times to the handling of these
communications, you will soon find yourself on the downward
slope of decreased productivity.

TIP #6:
When you find yourself spending too much time doing
non-productive activities, then you should seriously consider
finding a third-party service provider who will assist you in
those non-profitable business activities.

As an example, you might be in the mail-order business. You
might believe that your time is best spent writing ad copy and
setting up your advertising, but you find yourself spending far
too much time taking care of your books to take care of your
advertising in the manner that you should. In this event, it
might make more sense to hire a bookkeeper to handle your
financial records for you.

CONCLUSION:
In the end, the success of your home business is entirely and
completely reliant upon you and the decisions that you make.

You had your reasons for deciding to start your own home based
business. You must always keep your reasons in the forefront of
your mind. You must always be able to rely upon your own self
and your dedication to the success of your business.

Your friends and family might be annoyed that they cannot come
visit upon their own whim, but when success comes to you and
your business, they will better appreciate you for putting your
foot down when necessary.

Success is within your reach, if only you can stay focused on
your goals. You must decide to reach for your goals, and then,
you must have the discipline necessary to reach them.

The Concept Of Positive Thinking

The Concept Of Positive Thinking
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.fastcashfromhome.org

Everything in the world of form is preceded
by a thought. Thoughts are not in the world
of form, form is not in the world of thought.
But one actually precedes the other in all
cases. If one wishes to affect form, one
must work with cause, not effect. Thought
is cause, form is effect. And when we work
in the realm of thought, choosing a negative
one or a positive one will influence the
outcome.

Simply put, we live in a world of cause
and effect, for every cause there is
an effect and every effect has to have
a cause. Everything that happens in this
world (form) is an effect, the cause
being thoughts. These thoughts affect
the whole universe. And each thought
once generated and sent out becomes
independent of the brain and mind
and will live upon its own energy
depending upon its intensity.

All of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge
are based on our internal thoughts, both
conscious and subconscious. We are in
control, whether we know it or not. We
can be positive or negative, enthusiastic
or dull, active or passive. These attitudes
are maintained by the inner conversations
we constantly have with ourselves, both
consciously and subconsciously.

Mystics have long-held that we do,
in fact, control our reality, not
just the little things in life, but
everything. We create our entire
world by the way we think. Thoughts
are the causes and conditions are
the effects. Our circumstances and
conditions are not dictated by the
world outside, it’s the world
inside us that creates the outside.
They have maintained that regardless
of our circumstances, each person has
the innate, Universe or God-given
ability to create or alter reality
to our choosing. This is done by using
the power of positive thinking. They say
that we are not here to suffer or to live
a life of misery but rather, each conflict
or problem that we confront is merely an
opportunity to express our higher selves,
to evolve and to alter the circumstances
to our liking.

These concepts on the power of the
positive thinking, once restricted
to the initiated few, came to light
in the so-called New Age. Voices
from people such as Ram Dass,
Deepak Chopra, Joel Goldsmith,
John Price, L. Ron Hubbard, Dr.
Hew Len and countless others
expressed the notion that reality
is of our own making and choosing,
regardless of appearances to the
contrary. The basic premise is that
our past conditioning should be
re-evaluated and that we should
consciously determine the way in
which we wish to live. We should
use the power of positive thinking
to create things (reality) which
are good for us and for others.

THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING

In today’s world, more and more
people speak about the power of
positive thinking. It is a concept
that has a very high view of human
nature and ability. Its advocates teach
that the human mind has the power to
turn wishes into reality through optimism.
In other words The Power Of Positive
thinking refers to the power of creating
thoughts, which create and focus energy
into reality. To bring into creation a
positive outcome, which you see as a
benefit to yourself or others.

Positive thinking includes:
1. Our innate capability to produce
desired outcomes with positive thoughts.
2. Having belief in possibilities even
when the facts seem to indicate otherwise.
3. Making creative choices.
4. Meeting problems head on.

Positive thinking is a mental attitude
that admits into the mind thoughts,
words and images that are conductive
to growth, expansion and success. It is
a mental attitude that expects good and
favorable results. A positive mind
anticipates happiness, joy, health and a
successful outcome of every situation and
action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.
This is a powerful tool that everybody has,
but a lot of people are not aware of it.

Your Own Online Home Based Business

Your Own Online Home Based Business
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.fastcashfromhome.org

If you want to start or maintain your online
based business and make money with it,
then you will need to obtain high quality
products and be able to drive targeted
visitors to your website. If you’re unable
to achieve these two criteria, then you
simply won’t make money online.

Period!!

While it’s true that many people are earning
in excess of $100,000 a year with an online
business, it didn’t happen overnight.

If you think that starting an online business
and making money with it is a piece of cake
and it’s an instant solution to all your
financial problems overnight, then your
going to be sorely disappointed.

But if you’re prepared to learn the basics and
dedicate yourself to creating solid foundations
in building your own online based business,
then the world is truly your oyster.

Listen, it may take many months before you begin
to see the rewards for your efforts, but if you
have the necessary time, funds and energy to build
your online business, you will succeed in reaching
your goals.

Imagine yourself six months from now. You bit
the bullet, decided to start an online business
and you now making money online like it’s
going out of fashion.

Now you’re in the middle of planning your next
holiday with your family to a remote tropical
island. There’s no bills piling up on the
kitchen table waiting to be paid. You don’t
have to get up early each morning to go to
a job that you hate. Life has never been so
good and it’s all due to starting your own
online based business.

If you join a program -ANY PROGRAM- and DO nothing,

Guess what?

That’s exactly what you’ll get from it – NOTHING!!

What I’ve found is that “TAKING ACTION” is
the most important aspect of being successful.
You don’t have to know everything or how to do
everything perfectly, you just have to START.

You CAN succeed… IF you take ACTION!

Now think of what you have done in the last
six months and what you are doing now.

Are you going to wait and see what happens…

OR

Are you going to do something about it
and start your ownonline based business?

Go for the gusto! Don’t quit or give up. I
know it all sounds confusing when getting
started, but after awhile a light bulb goes
off in your head, and you’re like wow, now
I get it and things then eventually start
falling into place for you.

IF you are a quick learner, READING would be
the best material for you and understanding
what you read and DOING it. Not taking the
necessary steps that you read leads to
nothing.

Allow yourself sufficient time to actually
succeed. In my many years of experience
with my online business, the most common
reason people don’t achieve success is
that they expect “instant gratification”
(in other words, they are looking to make
good money right away) and they give up
and drop out before their business has a
chance to get some traction and succeed.

The road to success is not straight. There is
a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion,
speed bumps called Friends, red lights called
Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will
have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare
called Determination, an engine called
Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver
called Jesus, you will make it to a place called
Success.

Sorry to burst the bubble, but there is no magic to
having an business online, it takes sufficient time
and effort to achieve success…just like any type
of business a person chooses to develop.

If you are serious and want to start or maintain
your home based business…”The possibilities
are truly unlimited!”

There are several FREE Supports and online
guidance so you will create an attractive
monthly income stream for life.

Avoid the minefields, dead ends, and bottlenecks
that 95% of internet entrepreneurs encounter soon
after starting their business.

Discover what real freedom is. Work when you
want, where you want and generate tons of profits.

You could have your home in a country with a low
standard of living and be able to earn more money
than a person in the richest country in the world.
This is because your income can come from the
productivity of people in dozens of countries.
