I’m, going to tell you exactly how i am get off your ass and get out there and sell something. You know a lot of people look for mentors thinking they’re, going to tell me the shortcut it doesn’t work.
That way i still grind. I love to grind. If you’re competing in one of my businesses, i’m. Going to kick your ass cause. I’m going to outgrind you, people quitting chargebacks flunking the exam that’s all going to happen.
Just get ready if you’re an entrepreneur, and you want to do something great. You’re, going to have false start after false start. False start after false start get it going. Then you don’t, get it going.
Then you don’t your group grows, then it shrinks. I’m telling you right now just know that gonna make some money. Then you’re, not being an entrepreneur. Tons of false starts tons of setbacks, but see a guy.
Like me, i knew someone was better than me. There’s, more talented people than me, probably more talented than you, but, like my dad said, the best ability is availability. You might outwork me for 30 days or 60 days or 90 days, but you ain’t.
Gon na beat me over a year. You can’t outwork me over two years. You’re gonna work me over three years. I’m gonna get you eventually. I’m, a dripping, damn faucet, i just keep coming at you just like you could be right.
I am a big believer that if you’re going all out, you are grinding it out. You leave it on the field. I’m, telling you right now monday through friday. If i am awake, i am working or working out period.
Keep coming, you might think, i’m knocked out. I just keep coming. I’m too. Damn tough to give up most people half-ass half their life all the time i knew they were going to get tired. They were going to flinch.
They were going to get down, they may not quit, they might see the letter they quit getting wide. They quit recruiting people, they quit improving themselves, they start sleeping in. They spend all their damn money.
I’m, not gonna. Do that stuff. I’m gonna save money. I’m gonna get up early. I’m gonna keep getting wide. I’m gonna stay relentless just like you should don’t give in to that stuff. Don’t give in to the fears don’t give in to the setbacks.
You’re gonna have failure. It’s, part of the game. We will relentlessly pursue perfection, we won’t catch it, but in our quest we will catch excellence and see in life. I believe that’s, what separates the people that go do something great is that they relentlessly pursue perfection.
They beat themselves up every day when they’re, not perfect. You think in basketball, everybody’s, got a god-given talent. Do you think steph curry can jump like lebron, james or vince carter? I would say: vince carter’s got god-given abilities.
I don’t know if steph curry’s got the same kind of god-given abilities as lebron or vince carter, or any of these guys in baseball. You think everybody’s got this perfect. 20 20 vision, like ted williams, had it’s, a lot of guys that hit a wall that they had to overcome a lot of guys that have to play triple a for a couple years before somebody picked them up a lot of them.
So is in business, but no matter what you’re, doing, anticipate the wall. You’re, going to hit it and in those moments whatever you tell yourself. If you convince yourself that the difficulty you’re facing is harder than everybody else’s and you buy it, you will stay where you’re at.
But if you convince yourself that whatever you all you’ve hit, other people have overcome it, and so can you you go through that wall as well. At the end of the day, when you relentlessly pursue perfection, you’ll catch excellence.
We’re all in a battle with our own brains, that’s, life that’s all life. Is it’s? The most powerful thing in the world is your own brain. It can work for you or against you, and when did you start to realize that the visualization could work for you and, as opposed to focusing on all those bad things that happened? All the things you didn’t have the people that called you names all the stuff from brazil indiana and you started thinking wait a second.
I just visualized this and now i can take it to the next level next level, because the visualization got you through the seal training. I think it did and i was able to visualize the end so before so when i was 297 and i was all fat and out of shape, i couldn’t, run a quarter mile and i was drinking milkshakes and eating boxes of donuts.
I visualized man, how would it feel so after i watched that show on discovery channel? For a brief moment, i was so. There was 22 guys that graduated. I watched this segment on tv about these guys going through navy still training and i couldn’t.
Even i i wanted a great swimmer. I was afraid of the water, all this crap man and um. I saw these guys just quitting, but at the very end it says 22 guys there’s command officers up there and it gives this great speech.
I was like man, i wonder so. I started visualizing me being the 23rd guy in these dress. Whites sitting there with these guys getting that navy seal. You know graduating this navy seal training. I was like god, so i put myself there.
I was like man that’s, an amazing feeling i put myself there at 297, not even able to do anything that these great men were doing. I said man if i could feel that that would change my life. If i could just feel that one it lasts for one second, you get that certificate.
You walk across the stage and what’s next, but i didn’t know that then my mind wasn’t. I thought i’d, live in that moment forever, so i said wow man, if i could just feel like them, if i could feel like them and what was that feeling you wanted so bad respect, accomplishment victory.
I wanted to win not like beat somebody else. It wasn’t about that. I i just wanted to go the distance everything in my life when something got hard. I quit if it was reading that’s, why you know i wasn’t great at reading.
I wasn’t great at writing. So i just quit. I couldn’t catch on as fast as you. I had to work harder than you, so i quit you know i wasn’t great at things, so i quit. You know i’m. I’m, not good at this, like man.
If i could just go that distance that extra mile to just go just to finish, i want to finish, i want to feel victory and victory for me. Wasn’t winning. It was just finishing so i said you know what, if i could feel like these guys feel it would change my life, but what i realized, the best feeling i had was when i was by myself, trying to lose this weight.
I had to lose it in literally less than three months 106 pounds less than three months and literally i started feeling victory just by putting myself in the battle it wasn’t about going to navy seal training.
It wasn’t about being the 23rd guy in that chair. I started realizing man just by going to war with myself every day and putting these challenges and these goals and these obstacles these insurmountable obstacles.
So what about losing 106 pounds me losing five pounds was an accomplishment me losing 10 pounds and then 50 pounds and the more i did the more i gained confidence and then the more i gained confidence.
The more i realized these navy seals man. These guys can’t. Do what i’m doing right now. I had no coach had no trainer had no money, i didn’t know how to lose weight. I had no knowledge of what i was doing.
I was just working, i was just sacrificing and then through that all these different tools started coming up, but i would have never found these tools. If i didn’t put myself in a very uncomfortable place, we all look for toughness.
We all want it, but we look for in a comfortable environment. You will not find toughness in a comfortable environment. Those of you who are listening to this. Whoever hear this you will not find it. I was trying to look for it everywhere.
The only way you find it is to drown yourself in a position where you’re, just out of sorts where you can’t swim and you’re drowning. Where you’re drowning. You’re drowning in life, but you say you know what ma & # 39.
Am [ __ ] that i’m gonna figure out how to backstroke or something i’m gonna figure out how to and then you, through figuring out all these tools. Your mind starts to when you quit your mind. Does this because you’re out once you say i’m not going to quit.
This is the 40. When you quit your mind, says we’re done, so it doesn’t, expand there’s, no expansion. When you quit, when you say [, __ ], you uh-uh this sucks, i’m drowning. I’m miserable. I’m suffering.
I’m broken, but i’m, not going anywhere. What happens to your mind? Is it does this? It says he’s, not leaving. So we got to expand, we got to grow, we got to figure this [ __ ] thing out. So then these compartments in your brain start to have.
They have to work, they have to work, and then you start to engage parts of your mind that you never engaged before, but you can’t, engage it by sitting back in these nice chairs drinking this nice water.
Talking to you talking about what i want to do, that’s where so that’s, where the 40 thing comes in it comes in when you’re in suffer mode, and you say i’m, not Going to quit, you’re, forcing your brain now to operate on a level it’s not used to one of the great sources of inspiration is progressing once you’ve gotten started now.
You proceed you progress. Now you go to class the second week you go to class the third week, but it’s, not only progressing in terms of time. It’s progressing in terms of what you’re learning progressing in terms of getting the information that you hadn’t discovered before now.
You’re excited about that progress. One of the greatest sources of inspiration is progress. When you start jogging around the block and uh, you know at first it’s a little difficult and then it’s two blocks, and then you go around four or five times, but then you know to notice your breathing easier.
You notice, when you go up a flight of stairs, you’re, not out of breath, and it suddenly occurs to you in a fairly short period of time. You’re, making progress having more oxygen in your lungs. You can tell, within a short period of time i’m, making progress on my my oxygen supply.
I’m making progress on losing weight. Then, when you start making progress in your business, your ability to make contacts your ability to talk to people being so shy, you decided one day: hey, i’ve. Had enough with being too shy, i’ve made the decision i’m, making some plans.
I’m, going to begin talking to people, and you start and at first it’s difficult, but then very quickly and it doesn’t. Take a year. I’m telling you it doesn’t take a month. It doesn’t take a week. I promise you, even though you’re, a little bit shy if you & # 39.
Ll just start to introduce yourself if you’ll just start to talk to someone you’ve, never talked to before just get started. I promise you in a fairly short period of time, because two things are happening.
One is deciding to overcome a liability, but also understanding that, with this new skill, now with this new ability and with my progress, no telling what i can accomplish, because if i can get over the fear of talking to one, i can get over the fear of Talking to number 10 number 50 number 100, and by the time i get to number 50 and number 100, my self-confidence is going to be so strong.
My self-esteem is going to be so high. My new skill is going to show such incredible progress that i will never look back on the old ways, so what an incredible source of of inspiration progressing, i jotted this down happiness.
Unhappiness is simply the lack of progress toward a preset goal. If you’re, not making progress, see that’s when unhappiness sets in, but here’s where happiness begins, making progressive progress, you don’t have to arrive all at once.
You don’t. Have to have it immediately, but as long as you’re, making progress as long as progress is part of your experience. Now it is a fantastic source of inspiration. Now, here’s, the next one source of inspiration – and that is achieving when you finally have arrived at that goal that you set.
I want to have this much experience and be able to do this by 30 days from now 60 days. From now six months from now and finally that six months passes and there you are finally, the time passes and you have it.
Finally, the time passes and the skill is now beginning to be polished, and it is so unique and effective. Achieving is an incredible source of inspiration, but here’s. What we notice, when you do achieve what it, whatever you set out in the beginning where you decided and planned, and you got started, and you progressed when you finally achieve that achievement, is not much more inspiration than when you decided it’s.
A different kind of inspiration: it’s, a different kind of feeling to having arrived. Knowing that you’ve got many other objectives to accomplish many other places. You want to go things you want to do the person you want to become, but at least i’ve got this one.
You know i’ve done this. I remember what way back when i wanted to do the training and i wanted to do teaching. I would like to do seminars because i saw people that had such a magnificent effect on their audience.
They used the language to such a an unbelievable degree. I could tell that something was mixed from their heart and their soul and their mind and their vocabulary, and this mixture of stuff together presented to someone’s, ears, to hear and a heart, maybe to believe and a mind to understand that the most Incredible magic could occur.
I thought to myself if i could possibly do that it would be the greatest feeling in the world.
PLR (private label rights) can be used as content on your blog or sold. As your own product, there are several other ways you can make the plr content work for you, plr can be used in different ways to generate an income online.
I am going to show you four ways. You can boost your income indirectly with plr
* Number one question and answer sites.
There are many question answer sites such as quora.com and yahoo answers. These are active sites with thousands of users.
Posting questions daily. One way to drive traffic to your own web properties will be to answer questions that the people post on these sites always include a link in your profile back to your own blog or products.
So where do you get content to answer these questions? Plr? Of course, you just need to find plr articles that contain information which answers these questions. Then it's, just a matter of posting the content.
As long as your answers are relevant, you will get their attention
* number two giveaway reports.
Plr reports can be converted into pdfs, then give away on file sharing sites, forums and facebook groups.
You must always appear to be helping the audience. Forums and groups tend to frown on marketers who offer a free gift, but use an opt-in page to capture emails. You'll, look like you're just using the group or form for your own benefit, which uh you actually are.
This will either get you a warning or you'll, get booted out of the community.
The best way to go about this is to give your report away with no strings attached no opt-ins, but here's. What you do, you will add a link to your website at the bottom of every page.
In your report, you'll, also insert affiliate links throughout the report. This will help you get passive sales.
At the end of the report, you have links to two or three other free reports, guess what they'll need to opt in to get these reports.
Now you don't have to play by the group's rules because the links are in your own pdfs
* number three quick tips:
Break your plr content down into bite, size, quick tips, convert these tips into short videos, post videos on facebook and youtube.
Also on your website and blog people who find your quick tips will look for you through the links in your video
* number. four offline marketing
offline marketing can be used for lead generation or to drive traffic, convert plr articles into short, catchy content pieces.
You can either convert them into infographics or use them on flyers, pamphlets, brochures etc.
For example, if you own a pharmacy printing out a plr article on the benefits of a vitamin with an image of vitamin d supplements, you are selling in your pharmacy will help you to educate the customer and convert potential buyers into paying customers.
These four methods are just a few of the many ways plr can be harnessed for your marketing online and offline thinking out of the box will allow you to tap into the sheer versatility of plr and how useful plr can be for your business.
Now in this video i have shown you how to boost your income using plr by alternative methods and things like Q&A sites like quora.
There are thousands of people asking questions and if you have some plr on that, will enlighten those people on that question.
You have a big opportunity there. You can make giveaway reports using your pr. You can use quick tip videos by making videos using your prr and offline marketing.
I think this is a real opportunity for a lot of people, because you can use your por to enhance your contact with your customers and create more buyers.

Writing Blog Content part 2
First of all, people come to the web for one thing and one thing only – information. Whether they’re shopping for products to buy or looking for a natural remedy for their acne, they’re hitting the web for information, advice, and help.
If your readers find quality information from you they’re very likely to:
- Stick Around
- Sign Up for Your ezine or newsletter
- Twitter about your site
- Recommend your posts
- Sign up for your RSS feed
- Come back in the future
- Refer others to your site
Second, search engines LOVE content. The more pages you have on your website or blog filled with quality content, the better. Whether you offer product reviews, funny stories, or meaty training, quality content is rewarded by Google, MSN, and Yahoo, as well as the many other smaller search engines online.
Third, adding value to the Internet begins to establish you as an expert on your topic. By writing blog content , your readers will begin to look at you as THE go-to person for information. You’ll begin attracting interview and JV requests as well.
As you can see content really is important if you want to build a successful blog or website on the Internet. Without it, your site is just another in the World Wide Web. How can people find you if they don’t know you exist? By establishing yourself and providing your readers with quality posts and other valuable information they need and want, you will see that you can easily become one of the big fish in the pond.
But, what if you don’t have time to be writing blog content constantly? Or, what if you don’t like writing? You’re in luck, there are many ways to add quality information to your blog without having to write it all yourself.
Before we get to that, let me tell you that while you can create a blog purely made up of content that you don’t write yourself, I wouldn’t advise it. If you want to really resonate with your readers, you have to let them get to know you as well. Don’t shy away from writing some posts yourself, but instead use my suggested content creation methods along with your own writing to create even more quality information for your visitors.
From the moment you begin researching ways to make money online, you hear WRITING, WRITING, and MORE WRITING, over and over again. There’s a reason for that and we’re going to discuss how the written word can make you money, but YOU don’t have to be the one doing all that writing. Save your paper and your wrists!
One of the hottest ways to make money online is through the power of blogging. But, what does blogging require? What do you think? What ONE thing must you do above all else in order to blog?
If you’re like the majority of people, your answer probably included…you guessed it…WRITING! After all, that’s what a blog is all about right? On your blog you are sharing your thoughts with others in the form of blog posts that you’ve written.
Before you run for the hills, let me let you in on a little secret.
While those blog posts are necessary in order for you to be a successful blogger, they do NOT all have to be written by you.
You need content to make your blog successful, but it does not have to be written by you. Let me explain by giving you some ways to make money and keep your blog fresh without wearing yourself out or giving yourself Carpal Tunnel Syndrome before you even get started bringing in the dough.
But, first, you need to know why content so important on the Internet and especially your blog.
continue to: Writing Blog Content part2
Starting a blog is one of the most accessible ways to make money online. If you are starting your first blog, you are being confronted with many choices about how to set up your blog, including selecting your blog platform. A blogging platform is the software that will help you turn your writing into a website that can be easily navigated and accessed by visitors.
There are two basic platforms to choose from when it comes to blogging: free and paid. Both of these options have advantages and disadvantages. Before you make your decision, you should read through the pros and cons of each and think about which will be best for you.
Free sites like Blogger and Weebly have several advantages. They are very easy for new bloggers to use. Setting up a blog is as simple as following a few prompts. There is nothing to install. Some of the other advantages include:
Price: they are free to use. You don’t have to purchase a domain name as the system will give you an address based on the name of your blog.
Ease of use: Posting to your blog is easy. You can also change the look of your blog very easily. This is all done through a dashboard.
However, free blogs have some major disadvantages when it comes to creating money making blogs.
Lack of flexibility: Compared to other options out there, the design and function of a blog is very limited. You can download and install custom themes for the blog, but most look very similar. This means your blog won’t stand out as well in your niche.
Domain name: You will get a free domain name with your blog, but the domain name will be “yourblogname.blogspot.com” or “yourblogname.weebly.com”instead of “yourblogname.com.”
Ownership: You will never truly own your blog because the files and content are hosted on their server.
WordPress is the other popular blog platform. There is a free option that functions similarly to Blogger. However, there is also a free option that allows you to have your own website name. You install WordPress on you website hosting and hook it up to a domain name that you own. If you don’t know how to do this, your hosting company should be able to walk you through the process.
Other advantages include:
Customization: WordPress themes are diverse and plentiful. Some themes will even make your blog look like an online newspaper.
Features: WordPress users have created tons of “plugins” that will increase the functionality of your blog and help you make the most out of your site.
However, You will also have to spend money to get your domain name and your website hosting.
Most professional bloggers go with the WordPress option because they maintain ownership of their blogs and can customize them to their heart’s content.
Remember your blog is your home on the internet complete with your own back yard. You will want to constantly invite people to your home and have them play in your yard not some Else’s. If they don’t play in your yard the will never become your customer or client.
Years ago I had a free website that was ranked #7 for the keyword “motivation” they changed their mind and demanded a large monthly fee instead of free, so I lost my website and my income,which was running about $250 a month at the time. I continue to remain skeptical of free!
Senior entrepreneurs often begin their online journey out of necessity. Perhaps they involuntarily lost their jobs through no fault of their own or had to retire on a savings that’s totally inadequate for today’s cost of living.
There are certain challenges in building a business on the internet that are unique to some seniors. One problem is that many seniors don’t know or understand the intricacies of the new computer technology. They may flounder or become discouraged as they try to learn.
One danger of trying to learn the new technology is trying to do too much, too fast. It takes time to learn even the basics of a computer and how the Internet works. Starting a business can be a scary transition from working for someone to working for yourself and when you have the added obstacle of learning a new technology, it can be very daunting.
Luckily, starting a business on the internet doesn’t require breaking the bank with startup costs. If you have a computer and access to the Internet, you’re already well on your way.
Websites and other types of help exist that promote senior entrepreneurial activities and offer solutions to any and all problems seniors may face. At first, seniors are intimidated by all they have to learn to become an online entrepreneur.
They’re afraid they may not have the mental prowess, business acumen or energy to make an online business work. They also don’t want to take on financial burdens and run a risk of losing their savings.
Most media stories tend to focus on younger entrepreneurs such as guru, Mark Zuckerberg, who became a young billionaire by introducing Facebook – a socializing network used the world over.
But, there are plenty of senior entrepreneurs who have been enormously successful with startup businesses. At the very least, seniors can easily supplement their retirement income and live a better lifestyle than before the Internet made it possible to become successful with home-based businesses.
It’s a fact that age isn’t a factor in Internet startup businesses. If you have the passion and can make a commitment to learn and utilize all that computers and the Internet has to offer, you can profit during financially tough times.
Don’t be content to waste the best years of your life living a financially strapped and lackadaisical lifestyle. Shakespeare wrote, “Leisure is a fine garment for a day, but is horrible daily attire.” Learn how the Internet can help make you into a senior entrepreneur.
