Today – Your Last Day On Earth

Your Last Day On Earth

 I just watched this video of Steve Jobs where he talks about Your Last Day On Earth
What if you were given the news that Steve Jobs was given… What would you do?…

I have family members who have had that devastating news and as I watched them
learn to deal with it, I was impressed and motivated with how they chose to use their
remaining time here in earth.

Watch this very short video from the late Steve Jobs…

Your Last Day On Earth

“If today was the last day of my life, would I do what I am about to do right now.and whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”


We all have to decide what you want in life. Go after it with everything we have got.

Enough of the excuses – stop letting other people tell you what you can and can’t do… what you are and aren’t capable of. You alone can control that.

Don’t ever stop believing in yourself… Time is limited for all of us… Make a plan and gt to work making it happen.

So if today was your last Day on Earth…. how would you live it? Would you change anything?
Certainly got me thinking….

Your thoughts? Write them below.

Do Same Thing You Get The Same Result

Some people wonder why they are where they are, same old boring job, same old boring house in the same boring neighborhood. No decent job prospects… just same old same old..
in most cases it is very simple to work out why they are where they are…

Comes down to not planing your life… if you don’t plan your life then someone else will plan it for you.

You see if you keep doing the same thing you get the same result.
You have heard the saying I am sure.. for things to change You need to change.
..and.. if you keep doing the same thing you will keep getting the same result.

If you don’t want the same old same old then what do you have to do to change things?

I love this video below as it’s very funny, it also shows over and over what I have just said:
“do the same thing, get the same result”

if you keep sticking your finger in your brothers mouth he will bite it.
The first time it was funny, then he did it again and again, not so funny after that… in fact it hurt.

Watch it below.

Do the same thing you get same result

The question I have for you today is…. who is biting your finger?
Who are you giving permission to to bite your finger over and over so it hurts?

I am sure after the parents switched off the camera they suggested that the brother not put his finger in Charlies mouth.

So I am telling you to stop putting your life, in someone else’s way.

Step up to the mark, become the person you were meant to be, stop making excuses and move ahead.

Remember if you are not happy then change what you are doing.
I recently put this on my Facebook page:

Winner or Whiner?
Prosperity or Poverty?
Victim or Victor?
Leader or Loser”
Faith or Fear?
In or Out?

You Decide!!!

Choose Wisely, Life … It’s Not A Dress Rehearsal!!!

If you don’t want the Charlie’s of the world to bite your finger then don’t let them.

Change the plan. Take control.

If you don’t like where you work, then find something else.
If you don’t like the fact that your bank account has less in it than your kids, then do something.
If you don’t like being over weight then go to the gym.

Don’t moan that “Charlie bit you” be the change…. go for it.
Remember if  You ” Do the same thing you get the same result.”

Art Williams Says Just do it!

Art Williams Says Just do it! So Why Aren’t You?


 

 This is one of the most inspirational videos that I have watched today. It’s the famous . Arthur L. “Art” Williams, Jr. is a famous billionaire insurance executive from Palm Beach, Florida. Art Williams is the founder of A.L. Williams & Associates. “As of 2008, he ranks number 843 on the Forbes list of the “World’s Billionaires” with an estimated wealth of $1.4 billion.” (Wikipedia).

 Some notable lines that I really liked are the following:

  • If want to win in business, you’ve got to be a leader.
  • The winners do it. They get the jobs done.
  • If you want to become somebody, do it!
  • I’m gonna win now, just do it!
  • I’m not making any money, what can I do? Just do it!
  • I want to win this contest, just do it!
  • Just do it, and do it, and do it.


 Watch it here: Art Williams Says “Just Do IT”

Winners just do it. But what do they do? They do whatever it takes to get the job done. They do it – and do it – and do it – until the job gets done. And then they talk about how great it is to be somebody they’re proud of. They talk about how great it is to finally have achieved something unique – how glad they are that they didn’t quit like everybody else – how wonderful it is to finally make a difference with their life. We need leaders in America who can “Do It!” – Art Williams

Here are some of the great point’s that Art says in his speech…

What is the 500,000 dollar a year person do, the 50,000 dollar person doesn’t do? You’re looking outside and study those 2 individuals, everything seems to be the same. They’re both of the same sex, they’re both of the same age, they have the same train, the same positions, the same contract, the same friends benefits, both are successful, they work hard, they’re good family people, make tough commitments. But what’s the difference?

What does the 500,000 dollar person do the 50,000 dollar person doesn’t do?

    • He pays the price a little bit more.
    • He works hard a little bit more
    • He’s loyal to the company a little bit more.
    • He makes money a little bit more.
    • He believes it a little bit more.
    • He saves money a little bit more.

This is all so powerful, and to finish off I want to add in these words near the end of his speech:

Yep you really got to do it.
“Art, Art what’s the primary difference between winners and losers?”
The winners do it…. They do it, and do it, and do it, and do it, until the job gets done.
And then they talk about how great it is to finally have achieved something unique.

And I’m glad they are.

They didn’t quit like everybody else.

And how wonderful it is to finally be somebody they’re proud of and make a difference for their lives

What have you done to achieve something unique? What did you quit at lately? What have you done to make a difference in the lives of others?
Winners Just do it, over and over, and over again.

Love this speech it is so inspiring and makes me want to Just Do It, if not for me, then for the people who rely on me.

I have always been told that you have to have a very big “Why” as to why I am doing something. My “Why” is to help my family and those around me that love and support me and also the greater good of the charities I work with and for.

 

So each day I “Just Do IT

Art Williams Just Do It speech.

Eat That Frog

Have you ever eaten a frog? Hubby has had snails, but can’t say I would really want to eat snails or a frog…
I know this is a pretty odd title… but I have been reading once again a book I bought a few years ago while in Aussie called, “Eat That Frog”.

Infact, I remember it was so good I read it from cover to cover while sitting at the same cafe for the whole morning. No procrastinating here , I got right into it…
I recently bought it again in the Kindle version so I could read it over and over on my iPad etc. I suggest if you have not read it yet that you do or watch this short video and it will give you an idea of what it’s all about… However if you have just said to yourself I will do that later… then YOU really do need to watch the video and or read the book. :-)

Watch the short Video Eat The Frog

 (sorry it seems that the person who owns the video has stopped allowing embedding so if you want to watch the video you will have to press “watch on Youtube” it will open in a new window)

 

I have just come back from 2 weeks in Australia running some meetings and trainings on making money online. I loved it. I was also very frustrated by some who like to use every excuse and then simply procrastinate and not make any attempt to do anything and then complain to me that they can’t make money and my money making systems do not work. REALLY…. they work for me and for 100′s of others…..

Now I get that all the time. Every time I write a post on how I am making money I get email after email asking me how to do it and what to do. I take time to show and explain and still people walk away and tell me  “it won’t work for me or I don’t have time, blah, blah, blah”

I give you an example….. I was talking to a lady who really wants to make some changes in her life and especially her bank account. She does not want to work anymore.

On questioning her about what she wants to do she said, “I want to work at home, on the internet, I want time with the family and I want to be able to make choices and do stuff when I want to do it”. Hmmmm says me, that sounds like what everyone wants. So I asked her what she was doing about making the changes. She gave a lengthy answer to what she was wanting to do but not what she was doing. Infact in the end she was doing nothing, but she had every excuse why she could not do all that she wanted to do.

The thing is she has lots of Frog’s to eat, but she does not want to eat any of them, not the ugly ones or the good looking ones. :-)

We all have things that we need to do, have to do, and don’t want to do…. at the end of the day after talking round and round in circles to this lady we got no where and I decided I had no more time to waste. She needed to get on and eat some frogs so she could move on in both the day and in her life, but really when it came down to it, she didn’t really want the change enough.

I have had to eat many Frogs, and I don’t always like it or enjoy it and infact in many cases I hate it. But if I had not eaten I would not have moved on.

After my last Blog post Has Your Cheese Moved Lately I had so many emails as people shared the good, bad and ugly of what they were personally going through or what someone close to them was going through.
I also got lots of comments and a few of them talked about how they had made some changes in their lives. They had decided to start a business online. They had bought different packages from different people and they felt let down, and said that they had been ripped off as nothing worked. According to these folk the only people that made money were the people who sold the programs and no one else out there was making any money.
and so on and so on…..

I want to say this in defense of many of us selling honest training programs, we know the numbers.

The numbers are this, about 1 maybe 2% of people who buy programs no matter what the cost,  actually don’t do anything. Read that word again… ANYTHING.
The reason why the number is so low is because people are overwhelmed. They have no idea which frog to eat first.
Yes there are sharks out there that sell old programs with things that do not work. But as I have always said I have yet to see any so called “Guru” twist anyone’s arm up there back and tell them they have to buy. I hate it when folk spend lots of money and then do nothing, it is frustrating to say the least, as you know that they are going to say, “Oh I bought a program off this person and it didn’t work so that was money down the toilet.

If you are one of those who has bought a program and it has not worked, please ask yourself a serious question… “what did I do to make it work” Remember the number, 1 to 2% don’t do anything at all.

While in Australia I showed one of my income streams that is so easy to do and makes me a 5 figure income every single week, it takes less than 3 minutes a day and one person said they did not have the time. I nearly fell off my chair. I think they need to learn to make a list, abit like Santa Claus, writing a list and ticking it off :-)

Can I ask you today… Can you make the time to “Eat That Frog” so you can move on and make a difference in your life and those around you.

We all have things that we hate doing… I don’t really like doing SEO or Submitting Sites and a number of other things in my internet marketing business, but I still list them down on my white board and I tick them off when I get them done and have a huge sense of accomplishment.

Here is a small Excerpt from the book Eat That Frog

 

Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time

Mark Twain once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long.
Your “frog” is your biggest, most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on if you don’t do something about it. It is also the one task that can have the greatest positive impact on your life and results at the moment.

The first rule of frog eating is this: If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first.

This is another way of saying that if you have two important tasks before you, start with the biggest, hardest, and most important task first. Discipline yourself to begin immediately and then to persist until the task is complete before you go on to something else.
Think of this as a test. Treat it like a personal challenge. Resist the temptation to start with the easier task. Continually remind yourself that one of the most important decisions you make each day is what you will do immediately and what you will do later, if you do it at all.

The second rule of frog eating is this: If you have to eat a live frog at all, it doesn’t pay to sit and look at it for very long. The key to reaching high levels of performance and productivity is to develop the lifelong habit of tackling your major task first thing each morning. You must develop the routine of “eating your frog” before
