by the way, i am very lazy

since nobody is behind me to kick my a$$, i have to put things in place to push me

this is eben Pagan's discovery : putting conditions in place so action and results are inevitable


look here : http://www.mynotetakingnerd.com/blog/mynotetakingnerdtop-lessons-from-the-eben-pagan-management-summit/


quote :

" There is a clear distinction between “doing something” and putting a “condition” in place … it’s not about doing something. It’s about what’s the structure, what’s the condition, what’s the context that I put in place that makes the outcome I want to have happen, happen automatically? "


i can't rely on thinking alone . i rely on thinking to put conditions in place that will force me to do things






I have a simpler hack... have someone rely on you, then it's not about you any more. ;)

i can't really do that for the moment but it would be a good thing to join a mastermind.

some people in France or Switzerland are successful entrepreneurs and they shoot videos for guys like me on the internet

if i went where i wanted in life, i would be glad to be part of their mastermind

i won't post their link because it is french material and we are on an english speaking forum so it wouldn't help people here.

anyway, i have just changed my strategy to have a better life

thank you Andy

Yeah,

Firstly, I think people start off scarcity minded, hiding everything from the boogeyman and assuming everyone is someone they have to beat. In the end though you only have to "beat" a select few key competitors, and part of that process is figuring out who they are. If you blame everyone you impress no one. And even with key competitors, don't blame them, look at them objectively. Some competition is healthy, so long as it heads towards better ideas, not weaker ones.

Secondly I think people worry about "authority", worry about getting trampled underneath everything and everybody. Rather ironically the solution is to gain/develop your own sense of authority by trancending those fears. It is an uncomfortable process but you have to get away from fighting phantoms and start focusing on who you can help.

Thirdly, I think people are really struggling to put words to their thoughts, and actions to their instincts, and without formulated thought or decisive action they feel they can't contribute directly so take alternative routes that aren't always well recieved. Unfortunately to fix this requires a lot of self work and it won't be fixed overnight, so be patient with it.

Fourthly, hidden concerns about ethics. It can be easy to look around and see all the bad in your life reflected in things people do in business. A person might carelessly boast about a sale where the followup product was sloppy or something like that and it gives people flashbacks. The solution to this is to control when and where and how your concerns about this arise, because if they erupt at every little thing it can become inhibitive.

Fifthly, implementing business process is kind of boring, so people can carry over angst from that. The solution there is to be self sustaining, make sure your own process is stimulating enough outside of forums.

Lastly, I think people assume that they must submit to "business culture", but that simply isn't true. You can act in parallel with it by growing the right outlooks yourself if you really want. But at the end of the day, that requires a lot of courage to do. When we lack courage, sometimes we play victim. And victimhood leads to supplication or vehemence. You need to develop enough independence that you don't need everyone to pay attention to you, that you can keep a level head and focus on solutions that don't require being showered with praise or comments.

Address all of those things as best you can, and hopefully you can find comfort and confidence

Forums are really interesting - you can be and act however you want, and people come to know and judge you accordingly.

Exactly the same as outside of forums now I think about it.

Bump.

Are you being the best person you can be?

Are you being the person you want to be?

Are you being the man/woman you want your kids to grow up to be?

Building relationships is very important. You can live on an Island but never let that happen to your business. When you get in a Financially Challenging situation you will see it very clearly. :)

The Marketing Game is a complex one.

"Tools" that spy on each other.

B.H. Forums that do nothing but talk about how to exploit and break rules yet those forums have very strict rules! They are sharing a link to your work and selling their own on that forum.

This is life. Part of the Game.

Once you go live and share your web property be prepared for your "colleagues" reverse engineering every aspect of it.

Part of the Helpful guidelines at an extremely popular Internet Marketing forum is to see what offer is popular and copy from their Sales Copy to create your own.

If I see a female avatar I immediately think Male no matter what. Sorry my real fellow entrepreneurs.

Over at Warrior Forum the original creator of that forum Allen Says created an all in one community to learn, share, buy and sell and I had my first big success there back then.

Know what his Avatar was?

The Word "Admin". No image.

Do a search right now and you will never find him, no interviews nothing and thousands of us gladly paid the "Bump" fees of his PayPal account over and over . I think there is one bald pic of him but not verified. :)

He eventually sold his baby Warrior Forum to Freelancer.com for 3.2 Million .

The owner of Plenty of Fish saw all those big dating sites with the fancy matching etc and big fees and made something totally FREE and eventually was making a mint on Adsense.

Plenty of Fish sold to Match Group for $575 million in cash.

Never saw his face until after the sale. Great story.

Do not live on an island with your business but you do not have to be plastered all over the place we just all need to tailor everything to what we are offering and find our happy medium.

You reminded me I have a fav listbuilding marketer and once she sent an email with a Poop emoji and it really turned me off. Some may want to look at that but I am a very visual person and not for me. So I took the time to actually reply even tho she said she may get some unsubscribes for it in the email.

I told her she is so damn talented why go there and I added sometimes I just ask myself what would Pat Flynn do? Another cool fav marketer of mine.

She sent out another Poop emoji email soon after that. Grrrr. :)
