7 Secrets To Achieving Personal Freedom MRR Ebook With Audio

Sample Content Preview

Everyone has the right to achieve personal freedom, but the sad truth is that not everyone is going to get it. In one form or another, we’re enslaved by our jobs, by our finances, by our health, by our family, and many other reasons.

We may not realize it, but the things we hold near and dear are often the factors that imprison us. It prevents us from doing what we want to do in our life.

But what exactly is personal freedom?

Many of you may say it’s the freedom to do whatever you want in life. Some may say it’s the freedom to eat ice cream in the middle of the night or whenever they want without getting judged by others.

Others may say it’s their financial independence – being wealthy enough to never have to go to work again.

Some may say it’s the freedom to come and go as they please without anyone stopping them.

You’re free to define your own definition of personal freedom. It’s personal after all. However, let me just be clear here: personal freedom still has boundaries.

You can’t go ‘borrowing’ someone else’s car without asking for permission first simply because you’re ‘free’ to do what you want. You’re not free to enter other people’s houses and take whatever you can get your hands on.

If that’s how you define personal freedom, then that’s not right. Imagine a world where we all go do as we please without regard to other people’s rights. That would be anarchy, plain and simple. There would be no law and order, just chaos and mayhem.

As civilized people, we observe human rights, and we respect freedom of speech. Just make sure you don’t go beyond your personal space. You need to recognize that you’re not always entitled to get what you think you deserve.

Personal freedom, in the context of this short report, is all about having the freedom to pursue your passion and living the life you’ve always dreamed of. All without infringing or stepping on other people’s rights.

It’s also important to mention here that being financially free is not necessary for someone to achieve personal freedom. You can be happy without being rich. Likewise, you can have all the money in the world but be neither happy nor free.

For instance, would you feel secure and happy if you know you’re earning your money through illegal means? I think not.

You’d most probably be paranoid, and you’d be looking over your shoulder all the time. In short, you won’t have the peace of mind necessary to achieve personal freedom.

With that said, here are the 7 secrets to achieving personal freedom:

Live with integrity

Knowing and doing what’s right are two different things.

At first glance, it may look like they’re referring to the same thing, but nothing can be further from the truth.

For instance, when people are faced with tough choices, they’d often choose something that will benefit them even though they know they’re doing the wrong thing. That’s not integrity.

When you have integrity, you always do what’s right whether someone’s looking at you or not. You strive to live your life according to your moral principles. You don’t let your actions be dictated by negative forces even though most people would be happy to.

To enjoy personal freedom, you need to have integrity.

Otherwise, you’re going to be living life on the edge – constantly afraid someone’s going to come and burst your bubble. Or that someone’s going to come and take away what you stole from them.

When you have integrity, you don’t become defensive when someone questions your decisions and your actions.

You don’t make excuses and point fingers when your shortcomings are exposed. You face everything head-on, and you remain honest even though you know it’s going to lead to negative consequences for you.

Your integrity is going to save you from a lot of headaches, you’ll sleep far better at night knowing you did the right thing and you didn’t step on anybody just to achieve your goals in life.

You’ve got nothing to hide, you’re literally an open book.

Your reputation is beyond reproach and others will view you as someone they can look up to. When you embrace honesty, you can live your life fully and freely.

Think positively at all times

Positive thinking is an important aspect of personal freedom. Without it, you’re never going to believe that you can, in fact, live freely. You’ll always be held back by your doubts. Your negative thoughts are going to consume you, and you’ll find it hard to get out of your comfort zone to go and chase after your dreams.

How can you be free if it’s you yourself holding you back? You’re never going to achieve greatness if you listen to all the naysayers out there. Your confidence will be shot, and you’re going to wallow in self-despair.

To break free from negative self-talk, you’re going to need help. Surround yourself with positive people and let them help you build your self-confidence. They’re going to cheer you up and encourage you to reach for your dreams.

They’re not going to give you a detailed list of why you’ll never succeed. If you don’t have any positive influencers in your life, you can read up on self-help books. Follow motivational and inspirational speakers. Let their wisdom guide you.

To become a positive thinker, you need positive influence. Seek that influence, and over time you’ll slowly improve the way you think.

When you start thinking positively, you’ll be optimistic, and you’ll then learn to envision a positive future where you have personal freedom.

Be happy for other people’s success

When you hear other people’s success stories, your initial reaction is probably one of envy or jealousy. Here you are working so hard to reach your goals, and you meet someone who’s a relative newcomer suddenly stealing the spotlight with his ‘overnight’ success.

We’ve all got different journeys ahead of us. We may be in the beginning stages, or the middle, or maybe even close to the end. We all didn’t start at the exact same time, so it’s futile to compare your growth to someone who’s been at it for the last 5 years. Or maybe you’re bootstrapping, and you’re comparing your progress to someone who’s had access to resources you didn’t have.

When you put things into perspective like this, you’ll feel a whole lot better. Sure, you may feel sorry for yourself, but don’t let it affect you for far too long. Remember to control your thoughts and always look for the positive side of things.

Jealousy and envy are not going to get you anywhere. It’s not going to bring you closer to achieving your goals. What you can do instead is learn from other people’s success.

Be genuinely happy for others’ success. Use it as inspiration to carve out your own path to success and ultimately, freedom. If they can do it, then so can you!

Always be grateful

One of the secrets to achieving personal freedom is gratefulness. You may not have much in the way of material possessions, but you’ve still got a lot to be thankful for.

You’ve got the gift of life, the gift of family and friends. As we’ve mentioned earlier, you don’t need money to feel free.

It’s all about your state of mind really.

When you’re grateful, you exude positivity. The people on the receiving end of your gratefulness will feel better about themselves, you’ll help boost their self-esteem.

You’re basically spreading positivity around you.

When you’re grateful, you don’t take things for granted. You live in the moment. You don’t look for what you don’t have and ignore what you do have.

1.0 Building Your Own Gold Mine

Congratulations! Thank you for investing in this manual. Within the coming pages, I will detail out to you how you – or anyone – can build your very own highly responsive list consisting of the best type of prospects there is – willing-to-pay customers!

It fascinates me even now as I write this because I’m more than convinced that anyone can easily achieve this if done right. It doesn’t matter whether you fancy using other people’s products you acquire the Resell Rights to or that you crave creating your own digital products.

And you don’t have to be technically savvy or own a membership site to achieve this, either!

Regardless of whichever way is your cup of tea, there’s a temperament for every marketer but ultimately, I’ll be showing you how you can build your own list of responsive customers at warp speed in the fastest time possible using ingenious methods not many had really thought of!

1.1 Virtual Gold Mines – Profitable?

Today, it’s more than possible to actually build your own “virtual” gold mine from scratch without having to join the early days of the Gold Rush. Just to offer you some ideas to start with, your neighbors or anyone with computer and Internet access can form your gold mine so you can rake in cash over and over and over again.

You’ve guessed it: the best kind of gold mine today is customers.

Customers are the best kind of prospects to have because:

- They are ready to pay,
- They have the money to pay,
- And if they’re familiar with you and your business, they’ll likely return!

As in the case of Internet Marketing, you will come to realize that unlike publishing a regular newsletter, your customer un-subscription rate can be significantly lower as well!

This is true because if you could make them trust you with their money for the first time (and that you make this a good!), the chances of them returning is likely to be high. Evidently, many top marketers report that their customer lists bring in a sales conversion rate of 15-20%, and above! The result: repeat customers = repeat sales!

Every time you have a new product to launch and sell, you don’t have to really look anywhere further than your own paid customers gold mine. That’s really worth building your business on!

Now this manual assumes that you have NO subscriber/customer list to start with so if you follow any one of the two plans (of your choice) carefully, the end result should be that you own your own list of responsive customers (provided that you take action, please).

1.2 A Word of Thought Before Getting Started

Before I get started, here’s a word of thought and caution as well: the concepts and techniques you are about to learn would require some guts (balls, chutzpah, bravado, bravery, whatever you call it) on your part to carry them out.

I’d tell you in advance that in effort of achieving your very own list of paid customers in the fastest time possible, you would be required to do some temporary sacrifices, one being the up-sell. But don’t get intimidated by this – as you read, you’ll discover why this is being the case. Having said that, let’s get started!

2.0 Using Other People’s Products to Build Your Customer List

If your hard drive is packed with digital products you acquire the (Master) Resell Rights to and you haven’t take advantage of them just yet, this Resell Rights plan is for you.

Another motivating factor for you to use this method to build your paid customer list is that perhaps you’re not keen on creating your own products may it be due to time congestion or unable to commit.

2.1 The Concept
Sales Letter
Offer a bundle of
Resell Rights
products at an
unbelievably low
price!
Traffic from
Affiliates &
JV Partners
Thank You
Give download
link and offer 50-
100% Commission
Affiliate Program!
Have all the Customers
Opt into Your Mailing List!

You want to achieve your objective of building your paid customer list by reselling a bundle of digital products you have acquire the (Master) Resell Rights to. It is preferable if you have the Full Master Resell Rights so you can pass on the rights to your customers and that your customers can do the same.

You bundle a group of digital products with (Master) Resell Rights and sell for a very, very low price, preferably $10.00 - $20.00.

And then, you recruit Joint Venture (JV) partners and affiliates to promote your bundled package to their subscriber/member list for high commissions. It gets even better if you offer 90-100% of the product price as commissions to your affiliates and JV Partners.

While this sounds nutty, the rationale behind this is that:

- You want to motivate your affiliates and JV Partners to sell for you, and

- You don’t mind forsaking the up-sells for building your paid customer list, which is more important and profitable in the long run for you because you can later endorse your next product launch.

And every time you receive a customer whether through your own effort or that of your affiliates, convert your customer into your affiliate as well via your Thank You page where you offer the same invitation to your affiliate program.

They won’t mind doing that as long as you provide convenience (that they don’t need to set up their own sales letter and package from scratch), and that your commission reward is irresistible (90-100%).

Your customers can in turn become your promoting affiliate partners and the result will be viral: your affiliates and customers building your customer list for you!

2.2 The Pros

1. There’s absolutely no need for you to create your own products from scratch. You can easily acquire Resell Rights products from paid membership sites or purchase exclusive reseller licenses if you can afford to invest.

2. This business plan can be started overnight.

3. With the help of your affiliates and Joint Venture partners, it is very possible to build your paid customers list heavily in a short period of time.

2.3 The Cons

1. If you bundle a lot of high-ticket Resell Rights products in a paid package and sell at a very low price, not only will it devalue the products, you risk creating a bad impression with Internet Marketers.

However, this can be easily solved if you sell very few but unique products or low-ticket items in a paid package. Alternatively, you can source and handpick niche (non-Internet Marketing) products with (Master) Resell Rights.

2. Selling bundled products with Resell Rights can prove to be very competitive as there are several other bundled products on offer across the Internet.

2.4 What Do You Need?

1. Web Hosting & Domain Name – Get your domain name from NameCheap.com and as far as hosting goes, I recommend HostGator.com or BlueHost.com for beginners.

2. Autoresponder accounts – this is your primary asset, as you will need it to collect your paid customers leads. I recommend Aweber.com or MailChimp.com.

3. A collection of (Master) Resell Rights products of your choice to form your unique package. 5 to 30 products is sufficient to form a low-ticket package.

4. Credit Card Payment Processor – to accept payments. I recommend PayPal and Stripe if possible.

5. Affiliate Program – you’ll need this to manage and recruit affiliates. You can consider JVZoo.com, WarriorPlus.com and even ClickBank.com.

6. Sales Letter & Thank You Page – to sell your package and your Thank You page is not only used to offer download links, it should also be used to collect customer leads into your autoresponder and later recruit them as affiliates to help promote your package for you.

2.5 Build Your Customer List – Step-by-Step

1. Choose your collection of products with (Master) Resell Rights carefully to form your unique package.

Be sure to check out each product’s reseller license before using as each product creator’s terms and conditions vary. You want to be able to bundle the product into a paid package so make especially sure you’re really allowed to do that.

Tip: You’re only going to charge $10.00-$20.00 per package so there’s no need to necessarily bundle 50 to hundreds of products in the package. In fact, 5 to 30 low-ticket Resell Rights items will do. The newer the products are in the market, the least products you can bundle in because not many

5 Common Juicing Mistakes MRR Ebook With Audio

Sample Content Preview

Introduction

Juicing has become very popular lately. Hardly a day goes by when we don’t hear some celebrity trumpeting his or her juice cleanse. It’s not the celebrity endorsements, however, that are important. The fact is, juicing can make a serious difference in how you feel.

The glitterati aren’t the only ones benefiting from juicing. Athletes, Olympians, and weekend warriors are improving their performance by adding fresh juice to their diet. Green in your diet builds red blood cells in your body, which leads to higher endurance and better athletic performance. Athletes need more than juice to stay in the game, but healthy juices are seen by many as an additional boost that can make or break athletic success.

Juicing does have some amazing benefits. It can provide an abundance of vitamins, minerals in concentrate form that you wouldn’t get otherwise, thus increasing your energy and general health. Fruit and vegetable juices also deliver antioxidants that can prevent serious diseases. Juicing can provide you with more energy, protect you from common toxins, and make your skin glow. The fact is, you should definitely be juicing. But you should be juicing the right way. Juicing works best as a part of a healthy lifestyle, not a quick fix to health problems.

It’s been known for a long time that fruits and vegetables are necessary for a healthy diet and in the prevention of chronic diseases. But getting those recommended five to six servings every day isn’t easy, if not close to impossible. That’s an entire bag of apples!

Many of us are lucky to munch on two pieces of fruit a day. Most of us are getting less than that. That’s where juicing can come to the rescue. By condensing four to five helpings of produce into a single glass of juice, you’re greatly increasing those needed nutrients on a manageable level.

But many people rely on juicing alone as the answer to their health woes, and that is a huge mistake. Juice to supplement your healthy diet, not replace it. A diet of just juice, regardless of how nutrient-packed, can lead to extreme hunger, which can cause severe binging.

If juicing is approached incorrectly, it can cause health problems instead of preventing them. Before you start juicing and enjoy all the great benefits, you need to be aware of the pitfalls and mistakes people can make when starting to juice. Yes, juicing is better than not juicing. Your body craves those fresh fruits and vegetables. But let’s start off right and do it correctly for maximum juicing benefits.

Start juicing slowly, with one glass of concentrated juice each day, then gradually add a second, then a third glass. This will get your body used to the additional boost of nutrients. If you start in full-blown, your body can release toxins into the bloodstream too quickly. Start your juicing regimen gradually, and allow your body to adapt in a healthier way. This is especially important for someone who is used to a bad diet and has accumulated an abundance of toxins. Too much of a good thing too quickly can cause your body to protest. Imagine starting a new exercise regime by running a marathon!

The best way to get started is with four to six ounces of concentrated juice daily for up to a week. Then just add four ounces each subsequent week until you reach 32 ounces, which should be enough to provide plenty of needed nutrition when incorporated into a healthy diet.

This book is designed to help you avoid the serious pitfalls made by many beginning and eager juicers. Juicing done right can improve your health in so many ways.
Drinking too much Sugar

Juicing provides plenty of nutrients fast and directly into your bloodstream. It can act very quickly because it is absorbed directly into the blood stream instead of digestive tract, so you feel the effects immediately. One big mistake people make when starting to juice is using too many fruits and too few vegetables. Yes, that freshly squeezed orange or apple sure tastes great. And you’re getting an instant boost of energy. What you are also getting is a large amount of fruit sugar called fructose.

We all know the hazards of too much sugar. It can lead to obesity, diabetes and heart diseases. That fact doesn’t change when the sugar comes from an excess of healthy fruits. The body will process most sugars the same way, whether they come from a cake or an apple.

The best ratio of vegetables to fruit when juicing is 80/20. That provides you with plenty of sweetness as you enjoy the health benefits of vegetables you might not otherwise eat. Many people try to improve the taste of their green juices by adding too many fruits. What they are adding, instead, is too much sugar. This will cause your blood sugar level to rise to dangerously high levels.

Sweet fruit juices can be addictive, like any other sugary product. While juicers may bask in their healthy habits, all that fructose can lead to serious obesity. Consider the following: one or two apples a day are a great health benefit. When you start juicing six, seven or more for one glass of juice, you’re overloading your body with many additional calories without the fiber necessary for slow digestion. The body turns fructose into FFAs (free fatty acids), most of which gets stored in the liver as fat. This can easily turn into Type 2 diabetes. If you consume 120 calories in fructose form, 40 of those calories remain in your liver as fatty cells.

A glass of juice in the morning can start your day off right. If you continue juicing fruit throughout the day, you are risking serious weight gain. For the remainder of the day, be sure to juice plenty of green, leafy vegetables and add just a bit of fruit as a sweetener. The best juices are green in color.

Fruits with a heavy sugar content are plums, pineapple, oranges, kiwi, and pears.
Fruits with a low sugar content are berries, lemons, and rhubarb.

Even vegetables aren’t immune to high sugar content. Take a 16 oz. glass of delicious carrot juice. It contains 41 grams of sugar! And carrots aren’t even the most sugary vegetable. A 16 oz. glass of beet juice contains 64 grams of sugar.

This certainly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be juicing. It means you need to become an educated juicer. The best vegetables for juicing will always be green. These are the ones highest in nutrients and lowest in sugar. Think cucumbers, broccoli, cabbage, celery, kale, spinach, collard greens and Swiss chard. These greens should form the basis of most of your juices. You can basically consume an unlimited amount of them.

Vegetables with the highest sugar content tend to be root vegetables such as yams, beets, carrots and potatoes. These vegetables do have other, obvious health benefits, so don’t omit them from your diet altogether.

All vegetables are good for you. This list is merely a juicing guide when you are watching your sugar intake.

If you’re juicing, eating some whole, fresh fruit in addition to the juice will provide you with the fiber necessary to help your body process all that additional sugar. Therefore, consider fruit juices an enhancement to fresh fruit, not a replacement.

Let's get one thing clear, we're all works in progress. There's always room for improvement in our lives regardless of how well put together we may seem to other people, there's always a spot or an area in our personal lives that we know we need to work on. Unfortunately, life moves so quickly and we may have so many duties, obligations and responsibilities that we become blind to this problem area.

In fact, for too many of us, we only become aware of them when it’s too late. You only sit up and pay attention once your partner is about to close the door behind her or him permanently. You only get a clue when you sit down in front of your boss and he or she tells you that the company is going to let you go. You only get the memo when your kid starts exhibiting antisocial and destructive behavior.

If any of these resonates with you, don't despair; you are hardly alone. Too many of us are so caught up in our lives that we become blind to certain signals that show us our life has lost balance. We start defining ourselves by our jobs. We start viewing ourselves largely in terms of our routine. In fact, if we're not careful, we start equating identity with possessions, status or reputation.

Whatever you’re struggling with regardless of how big or how small, there’s a high chance that its costs directly or indirectly, completely or partially by a lack of balance. How do you know? Well, here are the 10 signs that your life is off balance. Each item will include a description and a discussion of possible solutions.

Lacking energy every once in a while, is not a bad thing. If you are a high energy person who believes in giving 110% every single day, don't be surprised if you have an off day every once in a while. With that said, if you notice that you are sluggish pretty much all day every day, you might want to sit up and pay attention.
That physical sluggishness might be a signal of other forms of sluggishness. Maybe you're mentally sluggish; or maybe you’re emotionally slowing down; maybe your ability to connect the dots is degrading overtime. The physical symptoms of sluggishness and lack of energy, or lack of motivation actually highlights other things that are going on in your life.

Possible Solution

By looking at sluggishness as simply a physical symptom of other things that are going on in your life that you should pay attention to, you should focus on a wholistic solution. Understand that low energy is just one piece of the puzzle; by tracing its connection to other areas of your life and you would have a better appreciation of what truly is going on. Once you get this wholistic view of your sluggishness, you can have a healthier understanding of what wellness truly means.
This opens the door for a wide range of personal interventions that would enable you to feel healthier across the board. I'm not just talking about getting rid of that sluggish feeling, I’m talking about feeling like and living life like you are always aiming for peak existence. This is possible, [click here].

Have you reached the point that even your smallest and insignificant decisions take a lot of your time? This is a red flag, do not ignore this. This means that your ability to focus is off the rails. Now, you may be thinking that this just has something to do with your mindset or your psychological processes.

I'm sorry to say but it runs deep. Because if you are having a tough time making decisions, this means your personal focus is off and normally your focus has an impact on other areas of your life.

Possible Solution

When you have a tough time with willpower and focus, you might want to consider what you do physically; you might reconsider what you choose to eat; you might want to revisit your daily physical routine. All of these are tied in together. Your choice of ritual like it or not has a big role to play in your state of mind and your ability to focus.

To get a clear road map on maximizing your personal focusing ability, [click here].

When you keep holding off on making choices, two things could be happening. First, you really don't know how to decide so you just kick the can down the road. Similarly, you just run out of personal focus; you just don't have the willpower to make the decision. You think you have an idea of what the right choice is but you just can't quite get off the fence. This happens to the very best of us.

And unfortunately, the more we postpone these decisions, the bigger this bad habit becomes. You may start with relatively small and significant choices with a fairly light consequences, but if this becomes a habit that don't be surprised if you start holding off on life or death decisions. These things have a way of snowballing. And worse yet, the more you do this, the harder it is for you to make a decision until you reach a point you just can't make a call at all.

Possible Solution

When you're having a tough time making decisions, pay attention to your physical habit. Do you work out in the morning? Do you get some sort of exercise? What did you eat? What do you normally eat in a typical day? Who do you hang out with? These questions might seem like they are not related to each other but they are; they all go back to the same place.

To find out how small decisions in certain areas of your life can have a big impact on your ability to focus and make wise decisions, [click here].

As we get older, we begin to look at the world in terms of shorthand. We only listen for certain keywords and then we assume that whatever somebody is saying is what we think it is. The same applies to the stuff that we read. We don't really read anymore – we scan, and once we see certain keywords, that's when we read some more then we rush to conclusion.

If this is happening to you, welcome to the club. This practice is a manifestation of the fact that most people really don’t allow themselves to learn something new. We feel that there’s not enough hours in a day, so we have to rush through it – we just don't have the time. The truth is, we don’t give ourselves the time. We don’t allow ourselves to be open to new experiences because we either think that it would be too scary; it will take too much time or too much effort. Whatever the case may be, we just don't allow ourselves to do it – this is a problem.

If you want to be effective in whatever you do and more responsive in your relationships, you need to break out of this. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done.

Possible Solution

There are a couple of tricks that you can use to jumpstart your natural sense of curiosity. This may not be obvious to a lot of people but they are quite effective. You have to understand that your willingness to learn something new doesn't just impact your effectiveness at work; it also impacts how interesting you are as a person. It has a big role to play in how you view life. [Click here] to figure out how everything fits together and what you can do about it.

Your life is a product of what you choose to believe. If you get an idea in your head and you truly believe it, you can bet that it's going to have an impact on how you feel about things, how you interpret reality, and what you choose to talk about. It also has a strong effect on how you emotionally respond to the things going on around you.

At the end of the day, the world doesn't care about your feelings, that much is true. But it does sit up and pay attention to what actions you take. It pays attention to what you do. And there is a tight link between how you choose to feel about certain things in your life and how you behave.

If you change your emotional and mental habits, you change your results. When you change your results, you change your destiny.

If you're reading this, you are feeling discontented, frustrated and imperfect. You're feeling way down. You're having a tough time accepting yourself. You have serious questions regarding where you are, the decisions you've made, and what you're about.

Unfortunately, you're not making things any better for yourself when you choose to believe in 8 things that hold you back and drag you down.

These 8 false beliefs sabotage you. They make you feel weak, dependent, flawed and lacking total control. The worst part is they corrode you over time.

This doesn't happen on a one-time, big time kind of basis. Instead, it seeps into you. It wears away your resolve over time. Much like an emotional and mental cancer.
Learn to identify and let go of these 8 false beliefs and you will be on a much better path through life.

Most Americans love the fiction that they are the captain of their personal ship of destiny. There's a romantic imagery that comes with that. You against the world. You, creating your own path.

Well, here's the problem: the more you believe that you have to be in control, the less in control you become.
Because let's face it, the world is a chaotic place. You can create, write down, or formulate the very best laid plans, and they will not pan out exactly as you planned them. That's just the way things work.

As the old saying goes, life is what happens when you're making other plans. And to believe that you always have to be in control, that everything has to take place based on how you planned it is the worst form of self sabotage.

Because life doesn't work that way. Often times, when we plan 100, we should be happy if we get 50. 50 is definitely quite an improvement from the 20 that you're usually getting. Do you see where I'm coming from?

And the problem is, this sense of control leads you to an impossible attachment to perfection. You feel that you're not really in control if things do not pan out exactly how you imagined them to be. Instead, accept the world for what it is instead of insisting on how it should be.

You have to understand that it's hard enough to change yourself, can you imagine trying to change other people? Can you imagine trying to change situations beyond your control?

Let go of this mental cancer of wanting to be always in control. Understand that the only thing you can control in this world is yourself and your response to what the world throws your way.

You don't have to respond based on your emotions. You don't have to let your feelings get the better of you. You can respond based on your values. You can respond based on the character you feel you have.

That is the essence of real control. None of this has to do with controlling what goes on around you because the world spins on its own axis. It has its own agenda.
The more you feel that you have to control everything and everyone around you, the more you lose control. You're taking time away from what you should be doing, which is to control your response and yourself.

Most people would not admit to this, but if you were to look at how they think and how they emotionally respond to things going on in their life, it would seem like there was a giant spotlight on them. They think that they live their lives on this giant stage.

Everybody's looking. Everybody cares. In fact, they think that everyone cares so much about what's going on in their life that they're afraid to make a mistake. One loose word, one false move, one misplaced statement, and everything falls apart.

This is why a lot of people are so afraid of truly being sincere. They feel they have to play a role. They have to meet some sort of standard that is acceptable to the most people most of the time.

In other words, they're living a lie. And this rooted from the fact that you think that you are so important, so vital, so essential, that everybody's looking at you.
Well, the truth is, nobody cares. Seriously. Everybody's got enough problems of their own.

Everybody can talk a good game, but at the end of the day, you are responsible for your life, and you alone. Not your parents, not your friends, not your community, not your classmates – you.

If you believe in myths regarding your productivity, your ability to produce stuff on time suffers. If you believe in myths regarding your self-esteem or selfconfidence, you’ll end up suffering on so many different levels.

Myths lead you to a dead end. It’s a good idea to get rid of them so you can get better results. Unfortunately, it’s one thing to say that you should overcome myths, it's another to actually do something about them.

The biggest part of the challenge is identifying the myths in the first place.

When it comes to twitter marketing, here are 10 myths that you need to identify, confront, and overcome.

Just because you put up a Twitter account doesn’t necessarily mean you will get a ton of traffic from Twitter. In fact, according to the intensive analysis done by digital marketing firms, Twitter actually sends only a small fraction of the exposures it gets. This means that, even a lot of your twitter followers retweet your material, very few people click through.

This is why it’s crucial that you get retweeted a lot, so that the volume of those retweets can compensate the fact that few people click through. Without heavy visibility—as far as retweets go—you shouldn’t really expect a huge volume of visitors from Twitter.

This makes a lot of sense because Twitter is actually swimming in millions upon millions of twits every single day. It’s very easy for these twits to fall between the cracks. Massive retweets enable your content to overcome this statistical disadvantage.

A lot of people are under the impression that Twitter is simply a branding platform. It’s great to have your content in front of people’s eyeballs so they can see the title. It’s great to see your brand and your pictures on twitter— but that’s pretty much it.

These two lines of thought are inaccurate. Twitter can deliver traffic. Just don’t expect a massive amount. But it can deliver and—if you play your cards right—it can deliver qualified traffic.

This is a big deal because when traffic is qualified, these people know what they’re clicking on and they’re clear as to what their needs are. If the content they land on addresses those needs, there’s a big chance these people would actually convert into buyers or list of members or something else.

Regardless of how you convert traffic into cold hard cash, you have a higher chance of doing that if your traffic is qualified. Twitter can be a great source of qualified traffic. Numerically speaking, it may not be much, but success in online marketing is measured by conversions, not necessarily traffic volume.

If you know how to use Twitter, chances are, you will be able to drive traffic from this platform. It’s easy to think that this is the only benefit you would get.

It turns out that Twitter actually brings a lot of benefits to the table. Not only can it drive direct visitors to your target website, it can also help you get more backlinks for SEO purposes. It can also help you become an instant expert in your niche field.

It brings a lot of benefits to the table. You just have to be open minded about it. You also have to put in the time, as far as engagement is concerned.

Don’t hang your hat on traffic. Traffic alone is not going to put dollars in your pocket. You have to qualify that traffic. This is one of the most powerful benefits of twitter because you qualify that traffic by building up your brand, credibility, and authority.

In the early days of Twitter, lots of marketers managed to pump a lot of traffic from Twitter. It turned out that the huge percentage of this traffic simply doesn’t convert. This doesn’t mean that the traffic is fake. It’s not like all this traffic came from software. That wasn’t the problem.

The problem was, the people-driving all this heavy traffic volume-didn’t bother to qualify that traffic. In fact, a lot of them tricked people into clicking on a link.

I don’t know about you, but if I got tricked into clicking on a link through click-bait or some other cheap trick, I won’t exactly be in the mood to buy something. I wouldn’t be pumped up to sign up to some sort of mailing list. Because in the back of my head, I’d be thinking “I got tricked!”. I was expecting something, and I ended up in a place that did not deliver on my expectations.

If you drive real traffic, and you qualify through content, the right hashtags and branded twitter page, chances are, that traffic can convert. Twitter traffic does convert, you just have to know what you’re doing. You can’t just focus on a massive amount of traffic and expect—somehow, someway—for people to sign up. It doesn’t work that way.

A lot of marketers think that the global traffic pie is fixed, and that there’s only so much to go around. According to this thinking, if you want your slice of the twitter traffic pie to get bigger, you have to necessarily elbow into your competitors’ slice.

Put simply, for your slice of traffic to get bigger, their slice has to get smaller. After all, there’s only so much to share. This is wrong. There is such a thing as increasing the size of the pie.

Unfortunately, a lot of people are under the impression that reaching out to people who are already authorities—or are credible figures on twitter— regarding their niche, means that they are basically making a deal with the enemy.

They view these people—who are competing for the same traffic—as opponents. This really is too bad because there’s lots more money and traffic that can be generated from cooperation instead of competition.

Don’t get me wrong, competition is good, competition lights a fire on people’s behinds and pushes them to do their best. Competition ignites your fire in the belly and pushes you to the limit. You’re pushed to be more creative. You are challenged to be more resourceful.

This enables you to come up with better solutions and beat your competition today. Subsequently, they might come up with something better tomorrow, which means that you have to step up.

That’s what’s so awesome about competition. It pushes people to perform. They can’t get lazy. They can’t expect to coast on their past victories. That simply is not an option. As a result, everybody is better for it.

OPENING YOUR ABUNDANCE

“Summoning gratitude is a sure way to get our life back on track. Opening our eyes to affirm gratitude grows the garden of our inner abundance, just as standing close to a fire eventually warms our heart”

-Alexandra Katehakis

Ever heard of a certain short story of a woodcutter who accidentally dropped his old axe deep in a lake one evening? Poor guy isn’t a swimmer. All he could do is fixing his despaired gaze on his sinking axe until it disappeared into the depths of the lake.

The axe was his only tool for earning food and shelter for his family. His long hard struggle is nothing without the assistance of his axe. Now that it is gone, it will take him days to make a new one or even buy one. The sunken axe has been with him since his starting day as a woodcutter and he thanked it for all the hardship they’ve gone through. More so, it has been around since his father’s lumbering days. As he was muddling in his own thoughts, the lake bubbled with flashes of light coming out from it.

The woodcutter was shocked at the sight of a water creature emerged from it. The creature assured him that it meant him no harm and wish only to seek confirmation of a certain axe that fell on the lake where it resides. It was holding 2 axes, one is a striking golden axe and another is a used, battered looking axe. He told the water creature that his axe was the old one and thanked the creature for returning it for him.

Touched by his honesty and sincerity, the creature gave him the golden axe as a gift. At first the woodcutter refused the creature’s offer, afraid that there might’ve been something that it would want from him in which he couldn’t afford in return.

However, the creature convinced the woodcutter to accept it as a remembrance for all the sacrifices and good deeds he has gone through all these years with humility and patience. Overjoyed by the creature’s sentiments, he accepted it wholeheartedly and promised himself to remember this day. The day where his long-years of struggles was rewarded.

For once in your life, you would like to feel the magic of receiving wealth beyond your wildest dream for all the struggles you have gone through. But as much as you want it to happen, things won’t necessarily go your way.

As for our woodcutter, should the water creature not emerge from the lake to offer him a reward for his honesty; he will lose his dear axe for good. Worse, his only means to earn money for his family. But it did, and gave the amount of gift it dubbed equal to the woodcutter’s patience and perseverance.

Remember the first paycheck of your life?

Try to recall the excitement and exhilaration when you first cashed out the money. The excitement of earning money using your own hands gives a much more personal meaning to it. However, it doesn’t come without ample obstacles and struggles. This includes your attitude towards accepting the money as well. Why is it some people who struggled as much as you do didn’t receive what they deserve? Has this happened to you, your close friends or family members? Do you know what caused it mostly?
Within the next pages of this book, you will uncover the one true manifesto of your abundance. It is more than just your well-known struggle but it starts as early from the way your mind commanding your nerve system to act upon it.

This command is highly influenced by the result of conflict between your mind and your heart. Slowly, you utter words reflecting your feelings and eventually you act the way you are feeling now.

MANIFESTO 1: THE VOICE OF YOUR MIND

“There is a lie that acts like a virus within the mind of humanity, and that lie is, “There is not enough good to go around. There’s lack and there’s limitation and there’s just not enough.”

-Michael Beckwith

The path to great wealth and health starts from within. It hinges especially to your acceptance to the world around you. The result from the positive outbreak of your mind is a clear definition of what you desire from and for the world. Rather, the world itself will find you worthy of your altruist mind. Slowly, all the abundance in the world will open itself up to you.

You see, our mind is made up of constant rewiring of our thoughts, past experiences, expectations, actions at every second, minute and hours of our life. The ‘final product’ of our thoughts is the one in charge of the further reaction towards everyone around you.

Let’s start with when you first wake up for today. This would be one of the simplest things for you to do. All you need to do is to utter gratitude into your mornings. It is true when people say how the very moment you open your eyes to confront the day ahead of you highly influence your activity throughout.

Waking up to a silent, happy prayers or routine helps your subconscious mind to react positively to the days ahead. You won’t even have any room in your mind left to spare for all the negativity that you might’ve accumulated yesterday.

Why should you even have one if you are so focused on searching for something greater than yesterday. Life continues to those who believe in themselves; believe in their own capability that they are worthy to feel good every day. Of course, there are days when you feel like it should just stop because no matter the amount of motivation you feed yourself, your optimism continues to deplete.

Trust me when I say it is all because you started your day feeling lesser than you should be. You are demotivated by the upcoming day that you don’t even know what’s going to happen. Rather than breathing in all the goodness around you, you let your mind trapped within your own uncertainty.

Remember, your mind is the inquisitor of your actions. If I’m to exaggerate it, our mind is the all-seeing eye of our knowledge and physical capabilities. It can control us and bind us to our demise if we do not feed it with ‘magical’ ingredients surrounding us.

Remember your first, “what do you want to become in the future?” question back in middle school or kindergarten? Most of the initial dream you wanted to be back in the days changes gradually.

Some still believe that they could achieve their dream and that’s great. But that is the start of everything is it not? You wanted so much to project to your future according to what your mind told you to.

10 Reasons You're Missing Out if You Don't Market on Facebook

If you are not running a Facebook marketing campaign, you are seriously missing out. Facebook has over two billion monthly users. These users generate billions of page views month after month.

It is no surprise that Facebook’s sad revenue continues to grow. More and more businesses, and we're talking anywhere from local, mom-and-pop operations to huge multinational conglomerates are quickly waking up to the tremendous marketing opportunities Facebook brings to the table.

If you have been hiding under a rock or you are still thinking that Facebook marketing won’t really benefit your business, you might want to think again. Here are ten reasons you're missing out if you’re not marketing on Facebook.

The moment you log into your Facebook account, Facebook is essentially profiling you. It's tracking every piece of content you engage with. This creates a user profile that Facebook then employs to target their ads better.

When you run a paid marketing campaign on Facebook, you take advantage of this powerful ad-targeting and user-profiling infrastructure. On top of that, even if you don't want to spend one red cent on advertising, you can still benefit from this amazing user-profiling technology through Facebook page audience insights.

One of the biggest problems online businesses encounter is when a user goes through many pages and is about to buy but bales up. For whatever reason, the person has filled up a shopping cart or has gone to a sign-up page and changes his or her mind at the last minute.

Facebook has an amazing technology called Ad Retargeting that can help you remind that person to come back to where they were. In fact, this technology is so robust that you can remind people to go back to their shopping cart or, if they are reading a piece of content, go to the next piece of content that they may have overlooked.
Maybe they were reading a piece of content that people about to convert would normally read, then you would show them an ad that goes to your conversion page. Whatever the case may be ad retargeting drives people back to your website, and this can help you close the deal and improve your ROI.

If you’re not on Facebook currently, please understand that for every day you postpone your start, your competitors are learning how to target your audience members. They're learning how to market their stuff better. In other words, this is an opportunity cost and the potential loss for your business gets bigger and bigger every passing day. You’re just making it all that much harder for your business to catch up.

Did you know that if you have a small business and you already have local customers that come back again and again, they may be all you need to succeed with local marketing on Facebook. That's right.

How? Well, when you market to your existing local customer base, that you have a Facebook page and you engage with them on Facebook, your content might lead to their local friends and friends of friends. In other words, your brand becomes more visible in your local area of coverage because it's spread by people you already do business with.

The best part to all of this is that this is absolutely free. You just need to engage with your existing customer base on Facebook. Maybe you can run a special discount promo campaign or a discount code that they can find on Facebook and redeem offline.

Whatever the case may be by creating a tight link between your brick-and-mortar engagement with your customer base and your Facebook presence, you can spread the influence of your brand on Facebook, which can translate to new flesh-and-blood customers physically showing up at your business’ doors.

Let's get one thing clear. To sell anything online, you must first get people to trust you. For people to trust you, they must first like you. For them to like you, they must first feel that they know enough about the problem. Do you see how this works?

The best way to walk people through this conversion process is through content. When you market on Facebook, you can actually try out different content ideas. The good news is not all of them have to be hits. In fact, most of them can be failures, and that's perfectly okay.

Facebook is so robust that you get many bites at the apple when it comes to content ideas. You can publish many times over using an extended timeline.

Also, this is fairly straightforward because you can feed your content into Facebook ahead of time by scheduling stuff in advance.

Unfortunately, you miss out on this if you don't choose to market on Facebook today. Don't think that you have to come up with the absolute perfect content the first time around. There's no need to do that.

In fact, as you market on Facebook, the more it becomes readily apparent which pieces of content resonate the best with your audience and which ones fall flat. What's important is that you start publishing today.

Believe it or not there are lots of people who have developed a Facebook habit. Whether you call this a sophisticated and digital form of gossiping or not, the fact remains that there's a significant percentage of the American population that can’t get enough of Facebook.

How To Quiet Your Brain And Take Action MRR Ebook With Audio

Introduction

The human brain is hard wired to overthink and nothing feeds it better than anxious or negative thoughts. Anxious thoughts can be overwhelming, and so can negative thoughts. Both can also lead to overthinking which in turn result in anxiousness and poor decision-making. Together these two make up for a perfect formula for a racing mind.

What that means for a lot of people is that they often over-evaluate and exaggerate the real situations, events, possible scenarios and even goals but never actually do anything about them. Pending decisions are often a cause for worry with the imminent fear of making the wrong decision and having to live with it for the rest of their lives.

And while thinking is nice, not doing anything about your thoughts actually means not making any progress. In fact, being an over thinker can actually result in becoming someone who stands still in life, because deconstructing things won’t let you move forward. It may also be the one thing most responsible for stopping you from taking action.

This is the trap that a busy mind can easily get entangled in. A mind that tends to overthink can make it very difficult for people to balance thought and action.

They get trapped in their thoughts and find it very hard to act. If you think that you are an over thinker, you will also know that it is very easy for you to get caught in a loop where you recreate an event repeatedly or try to analyze an idea from every possible angle. After hours of thinking and getting no sleep, you often get nowhere and are unable to move the process along.

Plus, when you overthink, your judgement gets cloudy and your stress levels elevate.

What Do You Overthink About?

Not all overthinking is the same. This may sound strange so let’s look at it a bit more closely. One type of overthinking means obsessing over a single thing or event over and over again. It could be something in your present that you can’t seem to let go of such as why your head hurts so bad? Could it be a symptom of something more serious? Perhaps even something deadly? Is that why you can’t seem to sleep well at night? And so on.

Another way to overthink is to regret a decision or action you may have taken. This one takes you back to your past and keeps you rooted there. An example may be choosing a career choice that didn’t work out as planned. Instead of trying to change their circumstances, over thinkers tend to get stuck in the “what if” phase ruminating over the past. This neither helps change the past nor improve their current status.

Then there is the scenario where you keep deliberating about a possible future and how things may pan out. Thinking about how bad the economy is may lead you to ponder endlessly on how your investments are going to be worthless, how you may lose your job or how you may never be able to send your kids to college.

In any of these scenarios, overthinking the situation means that you can’t think about anything else and it starts to affect your life in a negative way.

The Problem With Overthinking

Since overthinking seems to mostly revolve around negative or problematic issues, these can take hold of your mind and exert their power over it. It is very typical for most people to obsess over previous mistakes, present day stresses and future troubles and not do anything to improve their situation.

Here are some common problems associated with thinking about every trivial thing in life:

Overthinking creates problems which are not there

Overthinking about every little problem only magnifies it manifold. Also, thinking about the same thing time and again makes it larger and scarier than it actually is. Ever spent time ruminating why your boss didn’t comment on your presentation in a recent meeting? Was it because your presentation was bad? Did it make you look incompetent in front of your colleagues? Are you going to be fired for making a sub-par presentation? You get the idea.

The same can also happen when you overanalyze a good thing. Even in scenarios where you keep thinking about something over and over again can diminish its importance and make it appear insignificant.

Things like choosing what to wear for a job interview or deciding where to go on vacation are not difficult decisions, but being an overthinker can make these seem like life or death decisions. Ironically, all that thinking won’t help you make a better choice.

Overthinking keeps you from living in the present

When your mind is constantly worrying, thinking and analyzing, you miss out on a real chunk of the present. Overthinking stops you from living in the moment and lets you dwell in the past or a possible future in your mind.

When you are not in the present, your brain shifts into something called the default mode which is when the decision making part of your brain does not work well. Research also points to the fact that when in default mode, the brain expresses lower levels of activity when you are involved in a task and higher levels when you are not engaged.

This means that it works harder when you overthink which is not a good thing, since allowing the brain to be in a state of constant anxiety can lead to other behaviors like anger and depression which are all toxic to mental health.

Character Building MRR Ebook With Audio

UNCONSCIOUSLY we are forming habits every moment of our lives. Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable nature. Some, though not so bad in themselves, are exceedingly bad in their cumulative effects, and cause us at times much loss, much pain and anguish, while their opposites would, on the contrary, bring as much peace and joy, as well as a continually increasing power.

Have we it within our power to determine at all times what types of habits shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character building, a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control? We have, entirely and absolutely. "I will be what I will to be," can be said and should be said by every human soul.

After this has been bravely and determinedly said, and not only said, but fully inwardly realized, something yet remains. Something remains to be said regarding the great law underlying habit-forming, character building; for there is a simple, natural, and thoroughly scientific method that all should know.

A method whereby old, undesirable, earth-binding habits can be broken, and new, desirable, heaven lifting habits can be acquired, a method whereby life in part or in its totality can be changed, provided one is sufficiently in earnest to know and, knowing it, to apply the law.

Thought is the force underlying all. And what do we mean by this? Simply this: Your every act - every conscious act - is preceded by a thought. Your dominating thoughts determine your dominating actions. In the realm of our own minds we have absolute control, or we should have, and if at any time we have not, then there is a method by which we can gain control, and in the realm of the mind become thorough masters. In order to get to the very foundation of the matter, let us look to this for a moment. For if thought is always parent to our acts, habits, character, life, then it is first necessary that we know fully how to control our thoughts.

Here let us refer to that law of the mind which is the same as is the law in Connection with the reflex nerve system of the body, the law which says that whenever one does a certain thing in a certain way it is easier to do the same thing in the same way the next time, and still easier the next, and the next, and the next, until in time it comes to pass that no effort is required, or no effort worth speaking of; but on the opposite would require the effort. The mind carries with it the power that perpetuates its own type of thought, the same as the body carries with it through the reflex nerve system the power which perpetuates and makes continually easier its own particular acts. Thus a simple effort to control one's thoughts, a simple setting about it, even if at first failure is the result, and even if for a time failure seems to be about the only result, will in time, sooner or later, bring him to the point of easy, full, and complete control.

Each one, then, can grow the power of determining, controlling his thought, the power of determining what types of thought he shall and what types he shall not entertain. For let us never part in mind with this fact, that every earnest effort along any line makes the end aimed at just a little easier for each succeeding effort, even if, as has been said, apparent failure is the result of the earlier efforts. This is a case where even failure is success, for the failure is not in the effort, and every earnest effort adds an increment of power that will eventually accomplish the end aimed at. We can, then, gain the full and complete power of determining what character, what type of thoughts we entertain.

Shall we now give attention to some two or three concrete cases? Here is a man, the cashier of a large mercantile establishment, or cashier of a bank. In his morning paper he reads of a man who has become suddenly rich, has made a fortune of half a million or a million dollars in a few hours through speculation on the stock market. Perhaps he has seen an account of another man who has done practically the same thing lately. He is not quite wise enough, however, to comprehend the fact that when he reads of one or two cases of this kind he could find, were he to look into the matter carefully, one or two hundred cases of men who have lost all they had in the same way. He thinks, however, that he will be one of the fortunate ones. He does not fully realize that there are no short cuts to wealth honestly made. He takes a part of his savings, and as is true in practically all cases of this kind, he loses all that he has put in, Thinking now that he sees why he lost, and that had he more money he would be able to get back what he has lost, and perhaps make a handsome sum in addition, and make it quickly, the thought comes to him to use some of the funds he has charge of. In nine cases out of ten, if not ten cases in every ten, the results that inevitably follow this are known sufficiently well to make it unnecessary to follow him farther.

Where is the man's safety in the light of what we have been considering? Simply this: the moment the thought of using for his own purpose funds belonging to others enters his mind, if he is wise he will instantly put the thought from his mind. If he is a fool he will entertain it. In the degree in which he entertains it, it will grow upon him; it will become the absorbing thought in his mind; it will finally become master of his will power, and through rapidly succeeding steps, dishonor, shame, degradation, penitentiary, remorse will be his.

It is easy for him to put the thought from his mind when it first enters; but as he entertains it, it grows into such proportions that it becomes more and more difficult for him to put it from his mind; and by and by it becomes practically impossible for him to do it. The light of the match, which but a little effort of the breath would have extinguished at first, has imparted a flame that is raging through the entire building, and now it is almost if not quite impossible to conquer it.

Shall we notice another concrete case? A trite case, perhaps, but one in which we can see how habit is formed, and also how the same habit can be unformed. Here is a young man, he may be the son of poor parents, or he may be the son of rich parents; one in the ordinary ranks of life, or one of high social standing, whatever that means. He is good hearted, one of good impulses generally speaking, a good fellow. He is out with some companions, companions of the same general type. They are out for a pleasant evening, out for a good time. They are apt at times to be thoughtless, even careless.

The suggestion is made by one of the company, not that they get drunk, no, not at all; but merely that they go and have something to drink together. The young man whom we first mentioned, wanting to be genial, scarcely listens to the suggestion that comes into his inner consciousness that it will be better for him not to fall in with the others in this. He does not stop long enough to realize the fact that the greatest strength and nobility of character lies always in taking a firm stand on the aide of the right, and allow himself to be influenced by nothing that will weaken this stand. He goes, therefore, with his companions to the drinking place. With the same or with other companions this is repeated now and then; and each time it is repeated his power of saying "No" is gradually decreasing. In this way he has grown a little liking for intoxicants, and takes them perhaps now and then by himself. He does not dream, or in the slightest degree realize, what way he is tending, until there comes a day when he awakens to the consciousness of the fact that he hasn’t the power nor even the impulse to resist the taste which has gradually grown into a minor form of craving for intoxicants. Thinking, however, that he will be able to stop when he is really in danger of getting into the drink habit, he goes thoughtlessly and carelessly on. We will pass over the various intervening steps and come to the time when we find him a confirmed drunkard. It is simply the same old story told a thousand or even a million times over.

He finally awakens to his true condition; and through the shame, the anguish, the degradation, and the want that comes upon him he longs for a return of the days when he was a free man. But hope has almost gone from his life. It would have been easier for him never to have begun, and easier for him to have stopped before he reached his present condition; but even in his present condition, be it the lowest and the most helpless and hopeless that can be imagined, he has the power to get out of it and be a free man once again. Let us see. The desire for drink comes upon him again. If he entertains the thought, the desire, he is lost again. His only hope, his only means of escape is this: the moment, aye, the very instant the thought comes to him, if he will put it out of his mind he will thereby put out the little flame of the match. If he entertains the thought the little flame will communicate itself until almost before he is aware of it a consuming fire is raging, and then effort is almost useless. The thought must be banished from the mind the instant it enters; dalliance with it means failure and defeat, or a fight that will be indescribably fiercer than it would be if the thought is ejected at the beginning.

And here we must say a word regarding a certain great law that we may call the "law of indirectness." A thought can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully, not by dwelling upon it, not by, attempting to put it out directly, but by throwing the mind on to some other object by putting some other object of thought into the mind. This may be, for example, the ideal of full and perfect self-mastery, or it may be something of a nature entirely distinct from the thought which presents itself, something to which the mind goes easily and naturally. This will in time become the absorbing thought in the mind, and the danger is past. This same course of action repeated will gradually grow the power of putting more readily out of mind the thought of drink as it presents itself, and will gradually grow the power of putting into the mind those objects of thought one most desires.

The result will be that as time passes the thought of drink will present itself less and less, and when it does present itself it can be put out of the mind more easily each succeeding time, until the time comes when it can be put out without difficulty, and eventually the time will come when the thought will enter the mind no more at all.

Still another case: You may be more or less of an irritable nature naturally, perhaps, provoked easily to anger. Someone says something or does something that you dislike, and your first impulse is to show resentment and possibly to give way to anger. In the degree that you allow this resentment to display itself, that you allow yourself to give way to anger, in that degree will it become easier to do the same thing when any cause, even a very slight cause, presents itself. It will, moreover, become continually harder for you to refrain from it, until resentment, anger, and possibly even hatred and revenge become characteristics of your nature, robbing it of its sunniness, its charm, and its brightness for all with whom you come in contact.

If, however, the instant the impulse to resentment and anger arises, you check it then and there, and throw the mind on to some other object of thought, the power will gradually grow itself of doing this same thing more readily, more easily, as succeeding like causes present themselves, until by and by the time will come when there will be scarcely anything that can irritate you, and nothing that can impel you to anger; until by and by a matchless brightness and charm of nature and disposition will become habitually yours, a brightness and charm you would scarcely think possible today. And so we might take up case after case, characteristic after characteristic, habit after habit. The habit of faultfinding and its opposite are grown in identically the same way; the characteristic of jealousy and its opposite; the characteristic of fear and its opposite. In this same way we grow either love or hatred; in this way we come to take a gloomy, pessimistic view of life, which objectifies itself in a nature, a disposition of this type, or we grow that sunny, hopeful, cheerful, buoyant nature that brings with it so much joy and beauty and power for ourselves, as well as so much hope and inspiration and joy for all the world.

There is nothing more true in connection with human life than that we grow into the likeness of those things we contemplate. Literally and scientifically and necessarily true is it that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." The "is" part is his character. His character is the sum total of his habits. His habits have been formed by· his conscious acts; but every conscious act is, as we have found, preceded by a thought. And so we have it - thought on the one hand, character, life, and destiny on the other. And simple it becomes when we bear in mind that it is simply the thought of the present moment, and the next moment when it is upon us, and then the next, and so on through all time.
