Intensity of Actions Determine Success

by , under Business

Work out successThink about the way a weight trainer pushes his or her body to the point of muscle failure. They do this on a regular or routine schedule to get the results they are looking for. The trainer understands the intensity of his/her actions will determine their success. In order to change the individual body mass, lines and structure he or she must consistently perform the necessary tasks over and over again until success is achieved.

The cool part about this is what happens during the midst of the daily routine. Somewhere along the line, the trainer’s intense schedule actually becomes a habit in which their mind craves. The mind actually misses the repetition of the workout, the smell of the gym and the feeling the muscles give when they are exhausted. The habit of working out has become an addiction and what a good addiction to have.

It’s the same way with musicians. I once saw an interview on TV of the famous guitarist Chet Akins before he died. In the interview Chet was asked about his love for playing the guitar. His response was that he loved it so much he misses it. He was older at the time and didn’t quite have the intensity required anymore. But he said he used to practice until his fingers would bleed and then he would just keep on playing.


The human mind is a very powerful and resourceful tool.

Do not ever make the mistake of believing that you can not be successful.

You can be successful at anything you trick your mind into being.

Intense and consistent repetition is the key.

Apply this approach in your business and you will have a very successful business as well.

Know that there is no doubt you will become extremely successful after the intensity and consistency of your actions become a habit or addiction to your mind. It’s all about fundamentally changing the way you think and do things. Just be certain the actions you take are a sure path to the desired outcome.

Set Your Goals and Shut Up!

by , under Blogging, Business, Internet Marketing, Music Promotion


It is my personal belief that if you want to truly become successful in life you must learn to set your goals and shut up. If you share your goals with the world you are only opening them up for criticism. People will begin to tell you it’s not possible. You can’t do it. You’re crazy! After you hear enough of this kind of talk you may begin to believe it yourself. This will eventually cause you to give up.

Many are never taught the importance of goal setting. It could be that the act of setting goals simply wasn’t important in their family structure.

I personally came from humble beginnings. The only goal worthy of talking about was to get a job and keep it. It was more important for my father to have a regular job which enabled him to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. That was the goal!

It wasn’t until I began my professional career in the automotive industry that I really learned the value of goal setting. Luckily, I had a great mentor who taught me the importance of setting a goal, keeping it to myself, achieving it and then moving on to bigger and better new goals.

You can accomplish darn near anything if you really want it bad enough. If you’ve already figured out what makes you happy in life, there’s not much more to do than set some reasonable goals and go after it. Write them down and possibly even frame them if it helps and then keep them to yourself unless the person you are telling shares the same goals with you.

Keep failure in it’s place. Know that failure is a part of the process. You may fail quite a few times before you actually succeed at your goals. If you never fail at anything how will you ever learn? A fear of failure will only serve as an excuse.

It has been said that Thomas Edison had over 10,000 failed experiments before he ever turned on his first light bulb. Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart, had quite a few stores fail before he finally introduced his mega discount store chain to the rest of the world.

Think of all the great actors and musicians that we see and hear on the radio and television. How many of them do you believe aced their first auditions? Not too many I bet. The difference is that they got back up on the horse and tried again. They knew what their goals were and nothing was going to stop them.

Set your goals. Keep them to yourself and then make it happen!

Best Wishes

Where To Start Earning Money Online?

by , under Everything Else, Internet Marketing

It seems that everyday now I get an email from a reader or an acquaintance and sometimes friends and relatives as well. They all ask me the same question.  Where do I start earning money online and is there really money to be made?

I will try to answer those questions separately for everybody reading.

My advice is to start with whatever you think you can handle. Regardless if that means joining a survey company and doing one or two surveys a month and making an extra $20.00 to $50.00. Maybe just sign up for a multi level marketing (MLM) company and send and receive referrals strictly by email. If you really want to take a leap then set up a website or blog and start marketing your own product or affiliate products. This is the sincere beauty of the Internet. It really doesn’t matter. I tell everybody that throws me that question the same thing I’m getting ready to tell you. Do Something! The worst thing you can do is sit and talk about it. Anybody can do that. Just talking about it won’t make you a dime! Most of you already know this but if you want something in life you have to reach out and grab it. Chances are that it won’t come to you so you have to go get it. Start by doing it part time between your other activities…ie..work – family and social life. Get on the Internet and start reading and networking with other people in search of the same thing. You will find that while there are plenty of scammers out and about there are also plenty of good people who are willing to help you along because they’ve been there themselves and remember how it was and because they genuinely want to help others. Good people do still exist in this world! You just have to wade through some bad to find them.

As to whether or not money can be made. The answer is a resounding yes! Considering the fact that there are 1.6 billion Internet users in the world and almost 252 million in North America alone I would say your odds are pretty good. It’s not a question of can you earn money. It’s a question of will you reach out and grab it.  More and more people are earning money everyday online. It’s because they stumble across something that actually got their attention and they were willing to take a chance and sacrifice some of their time. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the Internet is unlike other businesses because in a sense it’s not. Most businesses require an investment on your part be it online or out in the streets. Some are small and some are large. It’s like anything else. It just depends on your interests and what you think may keep you interested and what you can afford. If you can’t afford much right now then go after the freebies and take it day by day. With bigger risk usually comes bigger rewards so if you can afford some money to invest then look into a few larger opportunities. There are so many out there!

My personal recommendation is start right away! Get involved with as many different ideas and opportunities as you possibly can but always do your research prior to jumping in. I have tried to list here on my website and blog the ideas and businesses that stood out to me. I will continue to find more of them for you but there are hundreds of thousands of others out there as well. I am personally a fan of multiple streams of income so I like to leverage my time and money in as many opportunities as possible. This way I always have money coming in from multiple places. That works for me but may not work for you. The main point is as I stated earlier…..Do Something! Don’t just sit there at your computer wishing that something would come along and make you rich. Earning money online is like any other business. If you want to succeed you have to work hard at it. It doesn’t happen overnight for 99.9% of us but I can tell you one thing for sure as somebody who does earn decent money online. If you put your mind to it, set some goals for yourself and start doing something right this minute you will be a whole lot closer than you were yesterday.
