Why The News Are Preventing You From Success (Day 22)

September 20th, 2009 by DrJon

[tweetmeme]The News Affect Your State of Mind!

Yes, The News Affects you in many more ways than you may realize.
Maybe you are thinking that the news is only a way of transfer stories of what is going on around the world but it is so much more to it than that.

When you are watching news on television, reading in a newspaper or online, you will always create images in your mind of what is going on.

If you watch motion pictures, you normally use your imagination to think even further (consiously or unconsiously) about the actual happening and on a subconcious level your subconcious mind is also working on the happening in its own way. This would not be much of a problem if it were not for that the majority of news is negative in some way. They are nomally about accidents, war, disease and other negative happenings and positive news are actually quite rare.

Why is it so?
Well, Negativity, Fear and Scarcity sells! Stories that create and touch peoples emotions are the best in a comercial way.

So, watching this majorly of negative news will have your mind focused on negativity and negative things and if you do watch it on regular basis it will contribute to your experience of life being more negative as well and as the Law of Attraction says, what you focus on you will get more of, you will drawn more of what is negative into your reality. (even if you are not aware of what the Law of Attraction is or don’t belive in it I hope you can see that this is something that make sense anyway.)

I can say from my own experience that cutting out 90% of the news from my life during the past 2 years have definitely contributed to that my life has been taking a more positive (and joyful) route.

If you really thinking about it, the positive things that are happening in the world that you can actually focus upon are far many more than the negative ones. By cutting out news from your life (you can do it little by little if that feels more comfortable) you will soon start to experience more positive things appearing in your life.

Life is all about FEELING GOOD and you will start getting more of that when you cut out negativity from your life. :)

I would definitely appreciate if you will give me a comment or thought about this concept.

To a more Positive Reality,

PS. Of course it will also help to cut out other negative things from your life than just the news. :)
Negative “friends”, co-workers or other people that you are surrounded with for example.

Surround yourself with Greatness and Positivity and some of it will rub off! :D

The Reason You Buy From Someone… (Day 23)

September 13th, 2009 by DrJon

[tweetmeme]The Reason why You buy from someone, What is it?

It’s obvious when you think about it.

Most of the times when you chose to buy a product or service from someone you have a reason for buying from that particular person.

I mean, no matter what it is that you are gonna buy, you normally have a multiple of choices of people to buy from. (sometimes thousands upon thousands of people selling the same thing).

If someone you don’t know (or someone you just met) starts pitching you and wanting to sell you something, chances are high that you will be repelled by that and not buy something at all from that person. Hardly anybody likes the feeling of being approached and pitched immediately when they meet someone.

I compare this to going to a coctail party. When you arrive there, you don’t start to sell people stuff the first thing you do.
Well, IF YOU DO, you will be looked at as a total jerk and you ruin your reputation.

Still, this is what many people and businesses do when they are comming online and start using social media.
They Spam their links all over the place. To their Twitter followers, their newly added Facebook friends and leaving comments with no value on everyont and their father’s blogs.

How Cool is that?

Well, I don’t like it!
And I belive I have many people with me on this.

Pelple want to buy from someone they TRUST, LIKE or KNOW (and preferably ALL of those three points at the same time).
So if you start by establishing relationships with with people, just like you would do on a cocktail party, you will start to connect with some people and they will get to know you. Hopefully they will also start like you and trust you and your chanses of them doing business with you sometime in the future will be increased enormously!

I call this method Attraction Marketing or Relationship Marketing.

If you recognize yourself in my description of people that are posting their links and trying to pitch and sell to someone as soon as you meet them, No Offense, There is always possible to change your methods of approaching people.

And If you don’t wanna change your methods, I don’t judge you, but I will probably not do business with you either. :)

To Your Attracted Success,

Why You Should Focus on One? (Day 21)

September 3rd, 2009 by DrJon

[tweetmeme] This is The Power of One!

If you are something like me, you are a person that tends to be working on too many projects at the same time and haveing too many plates to handle.

Some people claims it is a good skill to be able to multitask. Before I would have agreed on that but I’ve recently come to the conclusion that multitasking isn’t always a good thing.
In fact, it can actually decrease your productivity enormously and, if you’re not careful, extend the time you have to work on projects before you will start to see a positive cashflow.

An example of this is when you are focusing on several different marketing methods before you have mastered any one of them.

If you focus on three methods instead of one at a time, It can actually take more than twice as long time to get a positive cashflow from any one of the methods compared to if you would have focused on one at a time. This is something I discuss in my video above.

I can agree that multitasking is good in some areas and for some purposes but one must beware that if done in a wrong context it can actually decrease your over all productivity and performance.

I hope this helps and give you some insights on WHY it is so important with focus! :)

Please share your view and give me some comments about this!
I want to know what you think!

To Your Success,
Dr Jon
