How to Create Great Videos With Focus Mastery – continued

By admin, April 17, 2014
Complete the video project you’re working on before you start a new one. We all want to create as many revenue streams as possible-this is a basic part of what we do as Internet marketers. But you’ll only make money by getting video products online one at a time. People who lack focus find themselves getting excited about a new idea before they have finished a project. If you have fallen into the habit of leaving projects undone, you suffer from a lack of focus.
Keep an idea book with you. When you’re working on an idea for one video product, it’s not uncommon to get a stream of ideas that could be a starting point for other great video products. Don’t let your next “great idea” cause you to lose your focus. Jot it down and keep working on the first project-stay focused on one project until it’s completed. Don’t start work on another idea until the last project is up and running on the Internet.
Stay focused on your vision. Write the vision for your video product where you can see it every day. Remembering your vision will keep you from drifting. If you get stuck, narrow your options and choose a single point to talk about. If you find yourself throwing out all types of different solutions and ideas at your viewers, you’ll only create chaos.

How to Create Great Videos With Focus Mastery

Lack of focus is the main cause of failure in business. This is true no matter what business you’re in. Focus acts like electricity-you can’t see it directly, but you can see how it affects companies and people when it’s running through them. To be a successful video producer and Internet marketer, you must make yourself an expert in one field or niche-the best way to do that is by sharpening your focus.
Before you start to create your next video product, consider these simple tips to put the power of focus to work in your business:
* Focus increases your self-discipline. Focused people are able to distinguish between the jobs that bring them closer to their desired goals and the daily demands that only waste their time. They don’t get overwhelmed by all the urgent but unimportant jobs that demand their attention.
* Focused people know where they want to go. When you have a focus, you have a vision of what you want to achieve. Above all, focused people concentrate on reaching their goals. Focus helps you measure your results and readjust your game plan when necessary.
How to increase your focus.
Post reminders for yourself. Hang your favorite motivational signs where you’ll see them when an idea for a video product seems to be going nowhere. Written reminders can help you recover your focus.
Set daily priorities. Be sure you have an action plan for every day. As you become more skilled at video production and as you learn from your mistakes, this will become second nature to you. But you will always need to do this. Always go back to your list of priorities before you jump into a new task.

Which Brain Decides To Buy… Or Not? – Continued

Got old foggy-looking headlights on your car? Just wipe them with this cream and they’ll look like new.

Have wrinkles? Just put this miracle cure and you’ll look 20 years younger.

Need to lose weight? Take this magic pill and weight will drop on it’s own.

However, none of these commercials advertise that: Headlights would require extensive polishing and several applications most likely will be needed to achieve somewhat desired result. That one will have to also look into stress levels and diet to help with aging and… That it may be absolutely required to lift some heavy weight for a long period of time to lose weight in conjunction with these pills.

ID-100144670See, if advertisers would actually advertise product’s “used manuals”, then sales would drop severely. Old brain loves miracles and does not like any effort. Now you understand that advertising easy and effortless solution to an annoying problem is one of the best ways to appeal to an old brain and make a sale. Just make sure it is easy and effortless. But does anyone has to lie? No… There are ways to either make easy and effortless solutions or there are ways to create a perception of an easy and effortless solution. I personally like doing both. But someone may ask:

“Wait, Yevgeniy, what do you mean by creating a perception is an easy and effortless solution?”

See, we live in a perception-driven World. If someone perceives that something is hard to do, then most likely it will be. If someone perceives that it will be easy – than most likely it will be. For example, if you go to Gold Coast, Australia and ask 100 people if learning how to swim is hard or easy, I am sure that almost all of them will say it is pretty easy… In fact, to them, it is like a second nature.

Now, if you go to Ikela, Africa and ask 100 people the same question, they may tell you that they are even scared to try. Therefore, based on where and whom you asked, you may develop your very own, yet very stubborn perception about swimming. If you never swam, you may either get super excited to try or would be very glad you never went into the ocean.

Do you now see how perception of ease and effortlessness moves masses of products? And yes, it appeals like an irresistible magnet to an old brain. In fact, so irresistible that people often purchase without their conscious awareness!!!

Something to think about !

Which Brain Decides To Buy… Or Not?

Have you ever wondered why is it some companies have far more superior products but can’t get ahead of “lousy” competitors?

Or why is it some guy with absolutely no marketing experience opens a website and outsells well-educated website owners by 100 fold?

Or how about this one? You present the best, most logical solution to your potential customer and he still spends more money on under-graded deal? Something just doesn’t feel right…

ID-100213258In order to understand how people buy, you need to understand how their brains work. In order to do that, you need to understand that even though brain is one organ, it’s functions are actually divided – making it as though there are actually “three different brains”. All these brains carry out different functions and have hierarchy of powers assigned to them, when it comes to making a decision to buy… or not.

Let’s start with the first brain. It is also known as left brain hemisphere. It processes logical, language and does your mathematics like 2 + 2 = 4. Then comes the right brain hemisphere. This brain deals with feelings and emotions. For example, it can help you feel good when you have 2 dollars, find two more dollars and now you have whole 4 dollars. Or it can make you feel bad because it is just 4 dollars.

Finally, there is an “old brain” – a primitive brain, also known as “survivor”. It makes decisions such as “take it or leave it” and “fight or flight”. That’s the brain that either “buys” or “rejects the purchase”. Trying to appeal with logic to an old brain is a surefire way NOT to make any sales. In fact, this brain can translate logic as “confusion with too much effort to process”. That’s why you see most commercials advertising only easy solutions, quick fixes and miracle cures- but nothing that requires knowledge, experience and persistence to achieve results.

Why Most Success Courses Don’t Work – Part 3

For most people these statements should test strong, or “true.” Once you are able to establish a consistent test for these, you might have them say a few sentences like these:

“I raise giraffes in my back yard . . . Hold.”
“I weigh 692 pounds . . . Hold,” and so forth . . .

For most people, these statements will test weaker, or a bit “spongy” when you press on the wrist. The main thing is to get a clear test so they can “feel” the difference and make that connection between mind and body.

Once this is established, you can start getting them to make statements about their relationship to money and wealth such as “I can accept X dollars,” “I am committed to earning X dollars,” and so forth.

Muscle testing can uncover deeply-rooted hidden decisions and beliefs that have been running this person’s life for decades. If they are open to it, you can then help them explore their subconscious in ways they never have been before.

But be careful. Navigating through this maze of subconscious decisions, or “soul language,” can be a bit tricky. You need an approach that has been proven to get results, and that poses no threat to the person’s subconscious “laws” that keep them from experiencing greater success.

One such approach is the Money Matrix Method, and you can learn more about it at www.MoneyMatrixMethod.com. Michael offers live and online trainings for those interested in actively pursuing their own legacy.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have…

Your left AND right brains on board? Your body on board? Your emotions on board? Your intuition come into play effortlessly, and your memory of family, friends, and everything that’s ever happened in your life not holding you back whenever you make a decision?

You can do this. But you must be able to use what I call “motivational cybernetics” . . . this is when muscle testing is used to test the body’s response to any given thought or idea. The idea is to get more direct messages from the subconscious mind – through the body – in a series of “yes” and “no” answers, based on whether or not that muscle goes weak. Here’s how it works:

It’s best to work with a partner. Let’s say you’re the tester and your partner is the subject. Choose a muscle to test – one that is both easy to reach and will give you the clearest indication of a yes/no answer.

I usually select the deltoid, or shoulder, muscle since it’s the easiest to test. Have the person raise his/her arm out to the side, parallel to the ground and follow what I call the 3-3-3 Method. Standing slightly behind (or in front of) and to the side of the person, I do the following:

Using 3 fingers on the person’s wrist and say “Hold,” Wait 3 seconds, then press steadily downward on the wrist with about 3 pounds of pressure. Tell the person this is not a contest of strength. All you want them to do is meet your downward pressure, or “lock” the shoulder in place. Then do a few tests to see if they can “hold.” Once they can respond with a good hold, then have them say a few statements out loud, such as . . .

“My name is (whatever their true name is) . . . Hold.”
“I have two arms and two legs . . . Hold.”
“I have five fingers on each hand . . . Hold.”

Let’s face it, in addition to books like Think and Grow Rich there have been hundreds – nay, thousands – of books, CD’s and marketing programs and seminars on how to make money online, and find success, wealth, and happiness. These books, CD’s, etc. come from the same number of very successful marketing gurus, and motivational speakers who themselves know how to be successful, but don’t necessarily know the best way to get you there.

So you buy their books, take their seminars, listen to their CD’s and use their programs. When they don’t work, it becomes YOUR fault that you failed. No? Just read their legal disclaimers to get the full scope of your responsibility.

ID-100157726Regardless of the results you get, however, it’s a win-win. They get to be right because they obviously showed you the right way to commit to make money online and succeed. You, on the other hand, get to be right because you proved once again to yourself “This won’t work for me.”

Your subconscious – what I used to call “the one who makes things happen” has too firm a grasp on your fate . . . and little reason to change!

But why can’t you change? Why can’t you have anything you want . . . as all the gurus have said? You can, but think about this for a minute.

At any given moment you must decide to have the vision and take the right action. At any given moment you actually make a decision that either I can do it or I can’t do it.

And guess what? Your BODY can act as a navigational tool to help you figure all this out!! Your body is a finely-tuned instrument of your actual hidden truth. It will instantly decide if (a) you can do this or (b) leave it alone, you can’t do it, you’re not going to do it… or some other reason that may be hidden from your conscious mind.

The body, by the way, is just a vehicle for discovering your hidden decisions – seed forms of decades of beliefs, mind viruses, and social conditionings that have nothing to do with your conscious decisions, except to keep them echoing the same beliefs, mind viruses, etc. In other words, you can use the body to discover how and why you’ve been screwing up!

A Super Affiliate Marketer Offers Free Advice

By admin, March 5, 2014

A Brilliant Colleague in the Internet Marketing Business named Terry Telford Interviewed an Underground Super Affiliate Rosalind Gardner as part of a marketing workshop. The interview was absolutely ground breaking, and redefined the “rules of engagement” for a lot of affiliates.

One aspect with Affiliate Marketing that people always get stumped on is where to start. Rosalind suggests the first thing you should do is to pick a topic that you’re really interested in. Many affiliate marketers make the mistake and say, “Oh, there is a lot of money to be made in selling Internet marketing products to other people who want to become affiliate marketers or Internet marketers, yet they don’t know the first thing about making money online.

ID-10069199So, of course, that comes through in all of their articles, sales copy, and anything else. You can tell that they don’t know what they’re talking about, so they don’t make any money because there is no credibility. So, when you know about a topic and you’re really passionate about a topic you exude credibility and you need that to build trust with people who are going to visit your website. So, a passion and an interest for the topic that you’re dealing with is the very first place to start. Terry Telford then asks the most obvious question there is, “What if what you’re really passionate doesn’t have a market that really spends money?” and that is an excellent question.

Look at the example that Rosalind returns: “There are always ways to branch out from things – Take Palm reading for example… people who are interested in palm reading probably have interests in astrology. Take that a little further, talk about palm reading, and direct your visitors in other closely related interests. Spend a little bit of time learning about those other topics so you can branch out your site. There is plenty of money to be made in selling astrological readings and stuff like that online.Tons. So in the beginning of an autoresponder series newsletter, we can talk about palmistry and the benefits and what you can do with it and that type of thing, but then start introducing horoscopes because horoscopes sell. And there are probably many other affiliated books and products on Amazon, Clickbank, and many many more. You just have to look around and do research.”

So what is this saying? You can turn almost any marketing into a winner with the right research and product placement.

Continued – 12 Magical Steps To Make Resolutions Come True – Part 2

By admin, February 26, 2014

By: Dr Michael Craig

ID-100165689Here is the next lot that encompasses the remaining magical steps to make resolutions come true.

STEP 6 – Write down the MINIMUM you feel you can accomplish for each goal (i.e., the 5 items you wrote down in Step 4) and still feel like you accomplished something towards making them happen. This step is a way to free your mind from overwhelm, and allow you to take smaller steps rather than feel like you “failed.”

STEP 7 – Write down the MOST you feel you can accomplish for each goal. This is an exercise that allows you to dream a little or be outrageous. For example, let’s say your goal is to learn skydiving. Your minimum might be to take a skydiving lesson. The complete goal would be to make one or two tandem jumps. But what is the MOST you could accomplish, assuming the other two steps come quickly? Five tandem jumps and five solos? Buy your own equipment and become certified? Stretch you a bit.

STEP 8 – Set a Realistic Timeline of the steps you need to take to accomplish each of your goals to the end (don’t aim for the minimum or most; these will appear after you’ve started). “Realistic” means aim for something you know you can accomplish by a reasonable deadline that year, and hopefully with some help.

STEP 9 – Write down one or two action steps you can take in January for each of the five items. The key here is to start taking action now. The sooner you do this, the more accomplished you will feel.

STEP 10 – Make a list of Helpers, i.e., those who you can delegate ALL or PART of the action steps needed to accomplish your goal. NOTE: This step is the KEY if you want to be a high achiever. Everyone labors under the same clock, so it’s important to LEVERAGE your time as much as possible. Offer to pay the person, barter, or simply accept help.

STEP 11 – Measure your progress. This is something most people overlook. If your goal is to lose weight, how much weight? By when? What does your diet look like? Do you hire a trainer? If you, say, want to lose 50 pounds in 8 months, then you must lose 6.25 pounds a month, or 1.5 pounds a week. When I had a goal to ride 1000 miles a year on a unicycle for charity, I knew I had to average at least 84 miles a month – something I’ve done for 3 straight years!

STEP 12 – Reward yourself when you reach your goal! Whether you did the minimum, complete, or most, reward yourself with a gift, trip, night out, or something that makes you feel appreciated. You can also do mini-rewards for each monthly progress step accomplished. After all, you deserve it!!

12 Magical Steps To Make Resolutions Come True – Part 1

By admin, February 19, 2014

By: Dr. Michael Craig

ID-100165642After December 31st at midnight, the year 2013 is just a memory. For some, it’s a bad memory; for others, a wistful time when goals were achieved and ambitions realized.

Regardless of what last year brought, the desire to joyfully set forth New Year’s Resolutions around January 1st rears its ugly head in the collective unconscious. Why ugly? Because roughly 70% of all such resolutions never make it past the first month! Then those who practice this exercise in futility chalk up the whole ritual as useless . . . another indication that they are a loser who “just can’t get a break.”

It doesn’t have to be this way, however. In this article I will share my “12 Step Program” for keeping Resolutions that does NOT involve standing up in a group and saying “Hi, my name is Michael and I’m a resolution failure.” It does, however, involve a bit of self-reflection with a large slice of humility and honesty. So, are you ready? Here goes . . .

STEP 1 – Write down what you love. Most people are too busy taking care of life – and others – that they neglect their own needs and wants. Make a list of about 20-25 things without stopping to think what these things are, or HOW you are going to do them. Just go with your gut feeling . . . and do it QUICKLY! If you go too slowly, you will be inclined to think too much and over-rule your gut instincts. Once you make the list, prioritize them – again not on what you think is possible, but on what makes your heart sing the most!

STEP 2 – Write down your “Sticky Things.” These are things that stand in the way of your getting what you love. These are also the “messes” in life – physical messes, emotional baggage, or mental beliefs or mind viruses (“memes”) that block your path to happiness and peace. The list can be long or short, but be as complete as you can.

STEP 3 – Write down your Legacy. If you were to die at the end of next year, how would you want to be remembered? As a loving parent? A successful coach? A best-selling author of a book on relationships? Using Step 1 answers as a guide; your legacy wishes should reflect your deepest love or solution to some of the more chronic Sticky Things.

STEP 4 – Write down the Five (5) Things you can commit to accomplishing in 2014. These can be medium-term goals, such as renovating your house, or more long-term goals like building your business. If the latter, write down the action steps you can take to move further along this path, such as developing a marketing program or hiring and training an assistant. At least 2 of these 5 things should be about Sticky Things, i.e., messes you want to clean up or overcome.

STEP 5 – Flesh out the Complete Goals. For each of the 5 items, add as much detail as possible, including detailed activities, completion dates, and who (or what) you can get to help you.

These first 5 steps are what you need to find, state, and define your goals and needs. The next lot covers the details on how you can start taking action . . . and actually complete each of the goals!
