Need More Love?
Here Are Six Ways to Get It!
Kevin Bidwell leads us to love and happiness
through generosity of spirit

Do you have your copy of:
Self Improvement: The Top 101 Experts?

Certainly you have known someone who can brighten any room-- just by leaving!

I'm afraid that we've ALL known someone like that (and I am afraid, at times, we've also BEEN that person.)

Years ago I was listening to Dennis Waitley--the "Psychology of Winning" guy--and he made this statement: "I want to be the kind of person who makes others say, 'I like myself best when I'm with you.'"

I liked that idea. I decided to become that kind of person, for my own happiness and for those around me. On some levels, I think I have even made some progress there. I want to share with you today some of the keys I have found helpful in becoming that "I Like Me Best" kind of person:

1. "If you can't say anything nice..."

"...don't say anything at all." If you want to really help people, give up trying to correct them. Instead, compliment them on their strengths. Will they still make mistakes that, to you, are obvious and need correcting? Sure, but I have found that there is ALWAYS someone willing to tell others where they are failing, it is rare to find someone who will tell others where they are succeeding.

2. Be Optimistic

Everyone likes to be around the "realistic optimist". The "RO" is a person who can acknowledge that everything isn't always great, but that somehow we will all make it through. Knowing that trials and setbacks are both inevitable as well as temporary makes you an asset to the people around you.

3. Be Funny (--even Silly!)

When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried? That was TOO LONG AGO. Learn some jokes and tell them. Watch a comedy on TV. Go into Burger King and put on the cardboard crown. You would be amazed how everyone around you will respond--and how much better you will feel.

4. Give it away

Go ahead and be frugal when it comes to your bills, your clothes or whatever else you want to save money on--just be generous with PEOPLE stuff. Give a 25% tip to the waitress who served you that great meal. Give $5 to a kid you see at church. Give away hugs like you get paid for each one. Take someone out to lunch--TODAY.

5. Live in the Moment

This is a tough self-actualization step for many people: STOP WORRYING ABOUT TOMORROW. Instead, live in today. Live in right now. Live as if tomorrow will worry about itself. After all, what can we do tomorrow until tomorrow gets here? All we can do is whatever is before us today.

6. Love Deeply

This is the most important tip for happiness.

Sure, you love your spouse, you love your kids. But what about the people you work with? What about your neighbors? If you love deeply I will guarantee you a couple things: You will be disappointed and hurt, but you will ALSO find happiness from some people who will deeply love you back. Trust me, it's worth it.

Someday I hope that you and I get to meet and know one another. I have a feeling that I might be telling you, "I like me best when I'm with you."

Self Help to Motivation - Unlock Yourself
This personal development article is written by Roberto Sedycias

----------

Motivation involves strong mind power. It is believed that anything can be achieved using the tools of the mind! This involves using positive thinking and will power to motivate you toward a goal. In your lifetime you will you have many goals to aspire and challenges to overcome, it is important to make sure that you keep motivated in order to live life to its fullest!

There are some key tips to follow when you`re trying to get motivated. And these guidelines vary, which means that some might work for you and others will not. It is important to find out what skills you can use and which ones to not bother with, so that you can begin your climb toward achieving the motivation that you want!

Positive thinking is one of the key elements to getting motivated. This tool can be used in every situation. It is common when faced with a problem or challenge to think negatively about it. Usually it is the first thing that pops into the head, which makes it hard to think about it in a positive light. However, when you are faced with a concern, immediately find a positive about it. And it can be something minute, but just find it and focus on it. For example; someone who loses a job will obviously immediately focus on the negative impact; possible loss of house, car, lifestyle. Those are horrible thoughts that if left focused on, could over take your thinking and create a spin of negative thoughts and feelings. A way to detour the negative thinking is to replace the bad thoughts with good ones.

Positive thoughts that could out
way the negative ones in this situation would be; find a better job, use all resources, find yourself (quick so you can get back to looking for a job!), think about what you actually want to do! Some people when they lose a job will begin to think about what it is in life that they really want. Perhaps they have been in the same field for ten years or more, it may be just the thing to plan on returning to school or changing fields. Even if lifestyle changes have to be made to accommodate your new career, such as moving into an apartment or with relatives, your family will know that you are doing it for the long term and no one will judge you. Positive thinking can be used in all aspects of life, just replace a negative with a positive.

To get motivated toward something you want to do, keep it small at first. Many people for example when they are trying to diet will try to do it all at once. This unrealistic plan can lead to failure. If small steps are initially taken such as cutting out the chocolate for a week and then leaving out the junk food for another week, the small steps might just add up to the ultimate goal of weight loss. Small successes are important to keeping yourself motivated.

It is also not a bad idea to give yourself rewards for staying motivated. Kids get rewards all the time, but what about adults? And why is it wrong to reward ourselves? If you have worked out all week and feel great about it, why not buy something for yourself as a treat? Or even have that cupcake you have been eyeing at the bakery? Rewards are a great way to keep you happy!

Motivation can be achieved and conquered...it`s all in the way you think and feel about it!

The Power Of Creating Wealth From Nothing
(This article is written by Paul Counsel, self-made millionaire and author of The Infinite Wealth Trilogy, www.thewealthtrilogies.com.)

One thing you must always keep in mind is that learning is a process of discovering the new. It’s getting access to things you don’t know you don’t know.

Because most people demonstrate they have learned the skills of financial underachievement, it stands to reason that they are capable of learning skills. Skills can only be learned over time and they can only be learned with repetition. No skill that I know of can be instantly learnt. All skills require time and practice. If people can learn the skills of financial underachievement, it must also be possible to learn the skills of being wealthy.

All you need is some useful information, someone to mentor you in its application, time and practice.

If you put all these together, and you apply all that you learn, you will become wealthy. It's the Law of Cause and Effect. True learning works from unenlightenment to enlightenment. It doesn’t work the other way around. The trouble with most people is that they stop learning very early in their lives and get stuck with blueprints of struggle and lack.

To be successful on your wealth journey, you must employ the principle of total responsibility. If you are not prepared to take total responsibility for your present economic circumstances, and quit the blaming process, there is no need to read any further because you won’t find anything in these pages that will help you. As soon as you quit the blaming process and employ the principle of total responsibility, you move from a position of being out of control to a position of being in control of your financial destiny.

The starting place for all wealth creation begins with protecting what you’ve already got and reclaiming the power of what you already earn. Most people start their wealth creation strategies from the wrong assumption. A popular one is that you must have money to make money. This is incorrect. If it were correct then there could be no stories about people who start from nothing and become multimillionaires in relatively few years. My story is one of these and I’ll share some of it with you.

Basically I started with zero $’s and zero assets. What I did have was an absolute belief in myself, a passion for learning, a commitment to succeed and a determination never to go back to the lifestyle I was living. When I started off, one of the best things I did was give myself permission to be wrong. As soon as I gave myself permission to be wrong, I no longer had to do what everybody else was doing. I no longer had to think what they were thinking. I no longer had to believe what they believed and I no longer had to behave the way they behaved. As a result it only took me four years
to make my first million dollars.

As I said, the starting point for wealth creation is the protection of what you already have and the protection of what you already earn. You must protect yourself from people who want to lighten your economic load and not offer you knowledge and a commensurate learning experience in return. Most people attempt to solve the wrong problem and that’s the lack of money in their lives. In other words, they focus on the result and not the cause.

Most people fail to solve the problem because in order to solve it you must use information and knowledge you don’t presently have. Without this knowledge you can’t solve the puzzle and you end up running around in circles and using the same money habits that are presently causing the results you’re achieving.

If you want to be successful, somewhere along the line there must be some intervention strategies. You must change the way you think about wealth and to do this you need access to different knowledge.

As mentioned above, most people start from the wrong place. Your starting point must be, "how can I reclaim the power of what I already earn?" Most of the 100% you already earn has no power. If you’re like most Australians you'll currently be spending around 115% of what you earn. If you’re like most Americans, you’ll be spending 125% of what you earn and you’ll be surviving on credit to make up the shortfall. This is simply not sustainable over the long-term. If you want financial success, this strategy, despite its popularity, will not work for you.

If I ask you to reclaim 50% of the power of the money you already earn, you might say, "that’s all very well for you, but how do I live?" My response is, "that’s a better question than how do I get more income." It’s also a more appropriate problem to solve. Solve the problem of how you’ll live off 50% of the income you already receive and then use the surplus for your investment needs.

There are many ways to solve this problem and, if you allow me, I’ll teach them to you. All you have to do is begin asking questions. There are many ways to solve this problem and of course we’ll teach them to you. All you have to do is begin asking questions.

============================================

Side Note:

I explained in detail how to solve the biggest problem people face on their journey to wealth. You can find it in the first book of the Infinite Wealth Trilogy at

http://www.TheWealthTrilogies.com

============================================

You must begin by reclaiming all those dollars that automatically leave your pay packet each fortnight/month. You must stop giving away your dollars to the wealth creation funds of others. Over a lifetime, most people are happy to drink a fortune, smoke a fortune, wear a fortune, drive a fortune, and entertain a fortune. It’s these fortunes that you must reclaim.

And when you do, you can begin to use their power to create real wealth.

The True Secret Of A Successful Entrepreneur

Being an entrepreneur and running your own business might seem ideal... getting out of the so-called, "rat race" of job employment. If you're already doing that, congrats but read this article first.

The absolute best way to make money as an entrepreneur is to start out by doing the things you enjoy and outsource the things that are necessary but you don't like to do.

Although some people will tell you to chase the money and forget about what you like. After all, business is business, right?

That depends on you.

If your number one motivation is money-- if the sun rises and sets on money in your land... and if the sight of a dollar bills sends you into shivers of ecstasy-- then yes, perhaps for you business is business. If money is your passion, if "buying stuff" is what drives everything you do, then in that case it really doesn't matter what you do... because as long as you're making money, you'll be happy.

Do you identify with that personality?

Can you be happy doing anything as long as you're making boatloads of cash?

If not, then read on...

Most people like money, yes. I like money too. I believe it's the same for you as well. Come on, it's a fact and nothing to be ashamed of. But if I really examine why I do what I do today for business, I may find that money isn't the main motivator. "Buying stuff" may not be the main motivator either. Sounds cheesy and corny but I won't spend the time here to convince you that it's the truth.

If you're the type of person who thrives on good feelings when you help people, even if money isn't involved, if you are really passionate about something (cars, quilts, relationship, whatever), if a kind word from a customer would really make your day- then you may be an entrepreneur today NOT for the purpose of making the green bags. That's good news because you'll love what you're doing.

Yes, I know you're getting into business at least partly if not mainly to make money -- after all, money buys freedom... the freedom to buy what you want, the freedom to make your own schedule, etc.

However, you don't need to chase the money in order to make loads of money.

What do I mean by that?

Here's something for you to chew on... not everyone who "chases the money" is rich. I bet you've seem them all. And amazingly, not everyone who chose a path related to their passions is poor.

You see, choosing to chase the money is no guarantee that you will make money. In fact, there are no guarantees at all... So why not do something that you actually enjoy?

Exactly.

Now you may be thinking that if it makes money for you—if you see results, you don't care if you enjoy it or not. Sure, if you're one of those people I described before (where money is your main motivator), then this will work for you.

But I bet you've dropped things in your life before even though they were creating the results you wanted.

For example, have you ever taken up an exercise or diet plan that you didn't like?

Perhaps you took up running in the morning. But you hate running. And you're a night owl.

But dang it, you made a promise to yourself that you were going to lose weight and get in shape. So every morning you get up and jog. A few weeks pass and you step on the scale. Yep, you're losing weight. A few more weeks pass and your clothes are fitting better, you don't gasp for air when you run up a flight of stairs, and you feel and look better than you’ve ever felt.

In short--- you are getting AMAZING results. You are getting exactly what you wanted for your health and body.

And then it starts...

One morning the alarm goes off at zero-dark-thirty and you hit snooze. Your bed is so warm and cozy that the thought of getting up to go jogging makes you feel a little queasy. "No problem, I'll just skip a day," you say to yourself as you settle back in for another hour of sleep.

The next morning you rationalize it again. And the next morning... and so.

Pretty soon you're jogging just once or twice a week. Then once or twice a month. Next thing you know, you jogging in the morning is just a fuzzy memory of something you used to do.

If you hate jogging and you hate mornings... what made you think that you could ever keep with a commitment to jog in the morning?

Even the benefits of losing weight and getting in shape aren't enough of a reward to overcome the hatred of jogging.

Do you see what I mean?

There are many things in our lives that we drop even though we're getting results we wanted!

So here is what I'm proposing to you-- start off doing something you enjoy.

Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't do market research, or that you should purposely pick something where you can't even think of a way to make ten bucks but you like it. No, not at all. That's foolish. You're doing a business and a healthy business needs to make profit.

What I'm saying is that you should start entrepreneurship with your passions, your interests, and things that bring you enjoyment.

From that starting point, find a way to make it profitable! Don't bow down and drop your passions just because there are other markets out there that are known to be more lucrative. All you need is a little creativity to be a successful entrepreneur.

There are people that have taken interests like housecleaning, cooking, vacuuming and the like, and turned those passions into multi-million dollar ventures.

If these people can turn these sorts of interests into full-time professions, why can't you?

I'd much rather do what I like and let the money follow, then do what I hate and hope I can eventually catch the money.

The bottom line-- don't sacrifice your love for money. Unless your true love IS money it just won't work. Real entrepreneurs do what they do for more than making money รข€“ They have a purpose. Some call it, a 'calling'.

So you want to be successful in life? Is that what you want? Then you better stop failing and become aware of these 10 ways to fail in life.

You see, I've been asked many times for how to achieve success and weird enough, seems like nobody's taking that advice seriously. Then I realized one thing - most people are ALREADY failing before they even got started!

The article I wrote below is slightly controversy compare to the normal goodie-type personal development advice because this is the TRUTH. If I want to keep everyone happy and write about the colorful rainbow, birds chirping, flowers blooming, etc then I should just opens up a nursery home and take care of children. I want to tell you the truth straight to your face because I've been there and heard the garbage lies thrown everywhere.

Avoid these and you'll automatically be on the right track (provided you want to be successful)...

1. Mixing With Losers
It's a guaranteed way to fail in life with this. Whatever you like to do, losers will just tell you it won't work and after some time, you will also become a loser. High five, welcome to the losers' club. Something about losers you should know: they like to 'recruit' new people and are very comfortable in their shoes. They don't welcome Changes. So when you see someone with any of these two characteristics, you know what you should do.

2. Don't Know What You Want
The most common goal I hear all of the time is, "I want to be rich". I mean it's fine with that generic goal but the problem is, how rich do you want to be? Or how rich is rich? Put it this way - the methods used to make a million and $3,000 are different. No wonder some people couldn't experience breakthroughs in life because they are playing small for big goals. If you want to make a million, you better put in that level of commitment, bucko.

3. You Want Everything
It's nice to have a lot of things but if you go chasing everything, you get nothing. Let me tell you why - you only have 24 hours a day and you've got to focus on your priorities. I know, I know, you can hire others and so on but the fact is, you've got to want 'something' first to lead to another 'something', then to everything. Make sense?

4. Watching the "Secrets" Way Too Much
I'm not here to criticize Law Of Attractions (LOA) and don't want to receive hate emails. As a matter of fact, I do believe in it and have friends who appeared in the Secrets. But it's a surefire way to fail if you keep on watching the "Secrets" and doing 'attraction' by sitting down on your floor manifesting 3 hours a day. In my point of view, scientifically, Law of Attraction runs on the concept of 'believing'. When you believe you can achieve your goal, you will take actions to actually achieve it but if you don't understand this basic element and think LOA is some sort of miracle remedy, oh boy, you're in for a big surprise for failure.

5. You Don't Truly Know Why You Want Success
Wanting everything is bad enough - but it gets even worse if you don't even know the reason why you're trying to achieve your goal. What's the deal? Without a solid reason, a compelling reason, where are you going to find the motivation and encouragement for you to overcome obstacles? You think it's going to be fun ride to success? Then you haven't been traveling - it's a rocky road, my friend. Most people failed to achieve their goals because they never complete the journey-- they give up half way (or at the beginning) because they cannot see the worth of accomplishments.

6. You Don't Remember Your Roots
The thing I get most irritated about is people who achieved success and never felt gratitude towards those who have helped them. Is it very hard to say, 'thank you'? The law of reciprocity is simple – you return favors to those who helped you in the past. And maybe, they'll help you again in the future. Remember this- it takes more than just you to achieve success, so don't be a jerk.

7. You Think You're Smart
The day you stop learning is the day you stop improving yourself. If you don't want to fail in life, make you sure you stop acting as though you already know everything. The fact is, all successful people are people who continuously learn to be even more successful. They don't stop. Let me put it in this perspective - you don't know what you don't know, you know?

8. You Listen To The Wrong People
I watched this funny movie called, "He Is Just Not That Into You" and it just reaffirmed what I'm about to tell you. At the beginning of the movie, it shows a clip of a boy pushing a girl in the playground because he somehow doesn't like her. He thinks she smells like dog pooh. She cried and asked her mum why did the boy do that to her. And her mum replied, "It's because boys do that to girls when they like you." Do yourself a favor, don't get wrong advice. It'll stick in your brain and lead you to make stupid interpretations in life.

9. You Think Short Term
You'll hear this happening often in many 'successful' people's stories – make a lot of money to lose it all. This probably because they became too comfortable and the other thing is, once you achieve success, you should ride on the wave when the momentum is there. When you think short term, you're only going after the instant pleasure. You must learn to master 'delay gratification' so that you can enjoy your today's labor.

10. You're Blinded With What Is Important In Life
I believe there are only two things that are important in your life – control of time and experiencing happiness. Money, love, big cars, diamonds, etc are the things that contribute to these 2 benchmarks of successes. For instance, if you have money, you don't need to work so that you can have more time to do the things you like. It's not the money that you're trying to get but what the money CAN DO FOR YOU. I know this topic is bigger than one sentence explanation but I guess you get the point. You're a smart fella.

So now you know the 10 ways to fail in life. Question is, are you doing any of these? I'll be BS'ng you if I said I don't. I'm human dude, flesh and blood - I do mistakes too.

But I was fortunate to experience my fair share of success today because I learn powerful lessons from other successful people...

"It's okay to fail and you should fail as many times as you can. That is how you learn but more importantly, you should never give up – each time you get kick dirt in your face, wash your face and 'fight' back. Don't go crying like a sissy because Mum's not going to come cleaning your face."

Are you ready? Go get your goals.
