“Don’t eat to much veggies you might become ONE!” – Of Rumours N Facts

hi,

I’m from Brunei Darussalam. My question is, a friend of my inquiry regarding the prolong usage of Dr Tron can have a bad effect upon our body cells and fragile of bone……


It is funny how “advice” can strike fear, doubts and other negative emotions in people…. Johan, my word of advice to your friend – where did he/she hear it from? Is the source from someone who is an authority in bio-electric science? or it is from another lay person like us?

The fact is because of misinformation or ignorance, people of the Middle Ages through the 17th century thought the world was flat. Try claiming that now and you will be the laughing stock.

In short people are afraid of the unknown. We like to conjure up negative impressions or outcomes to justify why we should not be doing something out of the ordinary or status quo. Even when the status quo,  is sometimes detrimental to oneself.

So this is what I do when I am being told that I should not be doing something because something bad might happen in the future. Other than the obvious (such as do not rob the bank or else the cops are gonna come after you), I would ask some golden questions that every kid knows – WHY? HOW? WHAT? WHEN?

If the answer satisfies me, then well I might consider the advice. Else, if I want to do it real bad, I will ask for references to the source of information for me to study further. I never take any form of information at face value. It  takes more effort to understand something than to brush off something by hearing a baseless statement.

In your case, Johan let us look into some facts (and yes let your friend know as well),

As for bad effect on the cells (I take it as killing, damaging, mutating the cells), you can read up in the book  The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life to first understand the electrical properties of our cells. You will find out what role does bio-electricity play in our body functions and how important it is.

In a nutshell, cells have electrical charges to enable it to perform its functions. A healthy cell has charges of 70mV. A sickly cell 40mV. Cancerous cells have only 20mV.

So how did your friend come to the conclusion that Dr Tron has bad effect on the cells is beyond me. Because I know thousands of every other thing are affecting and lowering my bio-electrical charge and we are still using it daily willingly.

As of now my keyboard on my laptop is emitting its electromagnetic radiation to my hands, and I am surrounded by a blanket of microwave radiation from WIFI devices and my handphone is ringing. So, we might not die like tomorrow from using  these devices as we have tens of years of life before the damage accumulates and sets in.

So what is there to fear in Dr Tron? If it is really damaging, it’s gonna take tens of years before the actual damage sets in! The truth is Dr. TRON does not work that way. It is a physio-therapeutic machine approved by the Ministry of Health in Japan for treatment of headaches, insomnia, constipation and body aches. It is safe from side effects. There is a whole load of books written in Japanese, Korean and Chinese on this subject and its benefit to human health.

The therapy that Dr Tron does is known as bio-electric potential therapy or in simpler terms – electron bath. Bathing we we all do cleans our body from grime and what nots, an electron bath charges and balances our cells electrical levels to its optimum while we sit or sleep on it. After we finish the treatment, our body’s electrical charges gradually comes back to its normal state which varies from individual to individual much like bathing, we do not stay clean throughout the day or night after bathing.. we get dirty gradually from the activities we do.

By “charging” ourselves with Dr Tron everyday, we are actually maintaining our cells bio-electric levels and prevent it from deteriorating. Much like taking a bath everyday to keep clean and from infection. Just imagine if you bath only once in a month.. you will smell even if you bath.

On the second part of your question about Dr Tron affecting our bones’ density, do you understand why we get osteoporosis.

In layman terms, osteoporosis is caused by bones being too brittle where the bone’s density is low. A person is a candidate for osteoporosis if the bone density reaches below – 2.5 SD.  Osteopenia (beginning stage) starts at <1.0SD.

So why the bones become too brittle? Simply because calcium is lacking (you can find out more about osteoporosis in the Web). But why is it lacking?

Do you know that in order for the body to maintain its alkalinity at pH 7.33 – 7.4 (pH buffer) calcium plays a role as well? So if a body is too acidic, our brain will send instructions to extract calcium to balance the acid/alkaline level. So where does these calcium come from? Our bones! the largest reserve of calcium. So the conclusion here is – if you are have an acidic body you are at risk of “fragile bones”.

So Johan, I hope you know what Dr Tron does –  Purification of the blood. But how?

Some doctors say that Dr Tron promotes osteoporosis this is because they justify that Dr Tron actually encourages extraction of calcium from our bones to purify the blood thus resulting in osteoporosis. UNTRUE!

Dr Tron actually encourages the potassium and calcium transport exchange in our body cells to help improve on the pH buffering function. When potassium ions go in the cells, the cells can produce more energy to function. When calcium ions comes out from the cells it can help in pH buffering. This happens whether you are on Dr Tron or not. It’s just that with Dr TRON the cells are functioning at its optimum!

So Johan, you have my explanation in simple terms. I can go on forever but I think I’ll end here … for now…but i hope it helps clear some air.

My advice to all is… OPEN UP YOUR MIND!

Especially in the world of wellness. I know there is a lot of hoaxes pulled off by unscrupulous people or companies promising the ultimate solution to all health problems. These in turn gave a bad impression to genuine alternative therapies. But then again should we place all our trust on conventional medicine? Does it have its shortfall?

How is the healing crisis of taking a nutritional supplement compares to the side effects of medication? The former is more immediate and scares off the person consuming it. The latter takes tens of years to develop and people actually do not care about it, they think that by the time the side effects sets in they are already dead, which is also true, they died because of the side effect! How ironic!

Open up our minds! I do not deny the right to question but I beg you to exercise your right to THINK! Look at both sides of the coin.

Outright rejection of alternative therapies or nutritional supplement does not benefit you in any way but understanding of it at least has the benefit of knowing. Trying it gives the body a chance of recovery, if it does not work out, at least there is no toxic residue in the body unlike medication. So what’s there to lose except for some $$$ (when I am sure you’ll fork out only when you are convinced that it helps).

Well that’s really all of it… and thanks to Johan for bringing the writer in me OUT again!! I have left this blog for too long!!!!

Selling With A Purpose

 

dsc00002aSelling on purpose goes deeper than the actual surface meaning. When we talk about purpose of selling most would think of money, in actual fact it is much more than that.

 

My stand is

‘if you are in it for the money, you won’t be in it for the long run’

‘if you are in it because you are PASSIONATE about it, you will be in it indefinitely.’

Selling for the money or commission is important, it should be a goal and the money as a report card to measure your efforts.

Purposes holds a higher meaning. It goes above self.

 

A Purpose links with a person’s character and believe.

A Purpose motivates when the going gets tough.

A Purpose aligns back went the direction deviates.

A Purpose builds trust and integrity.

A Purpose in the end is when people form an opinion about you – salesman or a friend.

 

A noble purpose would be ‘Others above self’

Help others get what they want and stop talking about what you want.

Lets face it, if you go on thinking and acting on how to get the most $$ out of everyone’s pocket, your reputation goes down the drain and in the end you will run out of steam doing things alone.

On the other hand, your customers feel that you are really concerned about their problems and you are offering a solution to help them. They just need to make a decision and put down their hard-earned cash to get the problem solved. It creates a WIN-WIN situation for all. Better yet, they are satisfied with your solution, they give you great REPUTATION and REFERRALS! 

Easier said than done?

 

My advice: Check out your PURPOSE!

The Secret Of How To Sell Everything

Dear Marketing Top Gun,

In this Bullet I share the secret of how to sell anything. It’s a simple secret, and it works universally, no matter what business you’re in

But before getting into it, I want to make …

An Important Announcement
About These Bullets

I have always advised my clients to build their products, newsletters, books, and e-zines squarely on their strongest proof elements, namely their most persuasive and impressive credentials – including their strongest case histories, endorsements, testimonials, “reasons why” they offer better results and solutions, success stories, proven outcomes, expert status, areas of specialization, reputation within their industries, and especially a spirit of candor and integrity that never fails to delight clients and confound competitors.

When you make your credibility an essential, highly visible part of your marketing, persuasion can flow like silk because your most commonly encountered enemy – skepticism – is largely swept aside.

So when I decided it might be fun to write an e-zine, I chose to do it about copywriting, the area of my own strongest proof elements.

A wise man once told me that the best way to learn is to teach, and I have certainly found this to be true in writing this e-zine. As I worked on the first few Bullets, I gained new insights about copywriting, even after forty years of doing it almost daily and usually under the watchful eyes of legendary copy masters and many of the savviest clients in direct marketing.

One new insight I gained late in the game is that the most successful copywriters I’ve ever known possess mastery of two separate fields of knowledge…

  1. Mastery of their craft
  2. Mastery of success principles that trigger outsized achievement in any field, whether copywriting or anything else

Brilliant writers and marketers like Dan Kennedy, Clayton Makepeace, Gene Schwartz, Ted Nicholas, and others I’ve been privileged to know have not been just good, smart writers and clever marketers. They have also mastered the secrets of how to manage their time; be disciplined about their copywriting practice; and maintain devotion to studying their craft even after, perhaps especially after, they have hit the top of their game. They don’t sit on their butts or their laurels and are their own best motivators. They still act hungry long after their bank accounts would have persuaded less motivated colleagues to “stop working so hard.” They keep their hand in, even if they don’t need the money, because they’ve come to love the game. Mastery will do that for you – inspire an abiding love of what you do – once you know how to perform with consistent excellence.

This double-barreled mixture – tips on copywriting plus the secrets of personal achievement – became the gunpowder of these Bullets.

Many, many readers have e-mailed me to say they love this double focus. But lately I have come to realize that both are so critical that each needs its own in-depth treatment. So I have decided to separate these two subjects and write two different sets of Bullets.

This will enable me to help you more, by delving more deeply into each specific subject.

So from now on, these original Bullets will be called Marketing Bullets, and their exclusive focus will be on the best techniques I want to share about copywriting, selling, and marketing. This narrowed focus will allow me to get a lot more specific about the best tips and tricks I’ve learned from legendary copy chiefs and marketing masters I’ve worked with, who generously shared with me their secrets for creating ads that shatter response records and launch blockbuster new products.

And since the principles of high achievement are also critical to your success, whether in copywriting or any field, I will also write a separate e-zine called Success Bullets. It will focus exclusively on the latest scientific research, proven principles, and best personal habits to cultivate if you want to rise higher and faster in your chosen field, become indispensable to your client or employer, make a lot more money, and command industry-wide respect and recognition no matter what field you happen to work in.

So if you already subscribe to my Bullets, your stock is splitting two-for-one, and you will receive both these e-zines automatically, unless of course you opt out.

As always, both are free and full of valuable, scientifically based insights. Both will be short and fast, like bullets. And both will be published on my own relaxed, free-floating schedule, which means I’m not going to stuff your inbox with mountains of mediocrity. You should hear from me about once every month or two and only when I think I have a gem to share with you.

As I hope you’ve noticed, I demonstrate utmost respect for your time, attention, and in-box traffic. I resist the temptation to send you anything less than top-of-the-line, highly valuable information.

Today’s Marketing Bullet is a good example, which brings me back to my main idea today …

How to Get Anything You Want in Life

In a previous Bullet, titled, “How to Get Anything You Want in Life,” I wrote the following …

“The great motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar, has said, ‘You can get anything you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want’ …

“Ignoring this simple insight is the most common cause of marketing failure. Over and over, I’ve seen otherwise sharp marketers launch a product because they want to sell it, not because anyone wants to buy it.

“Top Gun, remember this always – you will easily avoid embarrassing failures and discover great riches only when you look at markets through the other end of the telescope – not the lens of what you want to sell, but the lens of what people want to buy.”

While I have never seen it labeled as such, thanks to those words by Zig Ziglar, I have always considered this the ultimate secret of how to sell anything: “Find out what others want and help them get it.”

Imagine my delight when I recently came across a previously unpublished manuscript that took this same principle and fleshed out the profound implications that flow from it, describing how anyone can use it to sell anything far more effectively and easily.

Harry Browne’s Masterpiece on Salesmanship

This undiscovered treasure is called The Secret of Selling Anything: A road map to success for the salesman who is not aggressive, who is not a ‘smooth talker’ and who is not an extrovert.

This unpublished gem was written years ago by one of the most brilliant salespeople, investment advisers, and writers of all time, Harry Browne.

I have no financial interest – zero! – in recommending it. I bring it up here because I am convinced that this is one of the greatest little books (an e-book actually) ever published on effective salesmanship. If you could read only one book in your life on how to sell anything to anybody, and do so without relying on high pressure, manipulation, exaggeration, or even an extroverted personality, this would be the book.

Harry was a consummate “big picture” kind of guy, a brilliant simplifier whose easy-to-read books on investing and politics helped millions of people understand – with the clarity of sparkling spring water – any subject he chose to write about.

Famous for his “live-and-let-live” libertarian philosophy, he ran for president on the Libertarian Party ticket in 1996 and 2000 and received a surprisingly large number of votes.

Harry made his living as a salesman, and he was so good at it, he was able to outsell virtually everyone else he worked with, while putting in far fewer hours.

The reason for this was that he had discovered a remarkably powerful and easy method for selling anything. His approach was so simple that he believed that anyone could fairly quickly become a master salesperson without being aggressive, manipulative, dishonest, persistent, extroverted, glib, confident, or even hardworking.

And he proved it! When he recruited and trained his own salespeople, he preferred to hire shy introverts, not outgoing backslappers, and he would teach them how to let his “almost effortless” method do all the heavy lifting of opening and closing a sale.

Harry died in 2006 without ever publishing the secrets of his much easier method of salesmanship. His widow Pamela recently decided to create an e-book out of two unpublished manuscripts he had written revealing this selling magic. And thus was born the e-book The Secret of Selling Anything: A road map to success for the salesman who is not aggressive, who is not a ‘smooth talker’ and who is not an extrovert.

Since advertising is nothing more than good salesmanship multiplied by a mass medium, this little e-book’s insights are worth their weight in gold.

Again, I have no financial interest in recommending this e-book, but if you’re interested in owning it, I can think of no better investment you could make in your career for such a small price. You can buy it directly from Pamela Browne’s website for only $9.75. The link is: http://www.harrybrowne.org/

All the chapters are short and fast-reading. The first six chapters review Browne’s libertarian way of thinking and how it applies to salesmanship. But the good, specific stuff really starts to rock ‘n roll in Chapter 7 and every chapter thereafter, where Browne spells out, with utter simplicity, the secrets of selling anything almost effortlessly. He tells you exactly how to allow your prospects to tap into their preexisting motivation to almost completely sell themselves.

And the foundation of it all is …

His Secret of Selling Anything

Browne’s secret is virtually identical to that of Dale Carnegie, author of How to Win Friends and Influence People, who said, “The only way to influence someone is to find out what they want, and show them how to get it.”

Browne puts the same idea this way …

“The one rule that sums up the job to be done, the one formula that is fully in harmony with the real world, the secret of success is: Find out what people want and help them get it!

“This is the way you separate yourself from the mass of people who just ‘get by.’ This is how you make sure that your services are always in demand. This is how you command a high price in the market­place, by making sure that what you’re offering is what people really want …”

What a Surprising but Liberating Discovery –
You Cannot Motivate Anyone!

Browne believed that you cannot motivate others to want something they don’t already want. You can’t create motivation. It must already be there, inside your prospect. If it’s not, you’re wasting your time and appealing to the wrong audience and making your job of selling so much more difficult.

But when motivation is already there, and you know how to identify it, you can make your job so much easier by tapping into it and using the prospect’s own desires to open and close the sale so much more easily.

Here’s how he describes this critical insight …

“It isn’t what you want that determines what other individuals will buy from you – it’s what they want. And that answer can only come from them, not from you …

“Probably 99 out of 100 salesmen try to motivate their prospects. And that’s their mistake. You’re not capable of motivating anyone, no matter how persuasive you think you are …

“Everyone is already motivated. The only question is ‘By what?’ Your job is to find out what it is that motivates your prospect. And then show him how he can get what he wants through your product or service. Only then will he buy …

“Most sales are lost because the salesman presented his product before he knew what motivated his prospect …”

I remember Dale Carnegie explaining this same principle by saying that while he loves to eat strawberry shortcake, when he goes fishing he baits his hook with worms. He would detest eating worms, but he doesn’t try to catch fish with what he likes to eat, but what the fish are hungry for.

How do you find out what motivates your prospect? There are two different answers to this question, based on whether you’re selling person-to-person …or writing advertising to a whole marketplace at once.

In person-to-person selling, it’s easy. Just ask! You’re sitting right there in front of a live prospect, so sound him or her out before you start selling anything.

Browne advises that you never assume that your product or service is right for every person out there, so don’t be dishonest and pretend that it is. That just turns prospects off.

Rather, when you’re in front of a prospect and before you sell anything, probe for his strongest motivation. Browne gives many examples in his e-book on how to do this tactfully. But a typical example would be something like, “Mr. or Ms. Prospect, what is your greatest concern about XYZ?” (For “XYZ,” fill in the blank with whatever area of life your product or service is designed to enhance.)

The basic rule is, don’t start selling until you know what the buyer wants to buy. Otherwise you could start your presentation selling benefit A, which is of little interest to your prospect, while he or she would have jumped all over benefit B, which you never even thought to mention.

In advertising, the situation is different because you’re addressing a mass audience at once. Nevertheless, you must still discover what most of the buyers want to buy before you start to sell.

To do this, you can use surveys and focus groups. You must go out and talk with your current customers and find out what’s most important to them. You can ask your best salespeople what appeals always seem to work best in their presentations. You should research which previous ads have pulled best and which have flopped. Best of all, you can use split-run tests as well as multiple Google ads, each built around different benefits, and scientifically measure which pulls the highest before you roll out with the best.

All these are necessary steps to execute the master strategy of salesmanship we are discussing here: “Find out what others want and help them get it.”

An “Aha!” Moment, Perhaps?

I hope that this Marketing Bullet gives you an “aha!” moment because fully understanding it will change your life if you sell for a living. It will release you from the enormous burden of trying to motivate someone else, which is not even possible. It will make persuasion – either in personal selling or mass marketing – so much easier because all you have to do is show people a good way to experience fulfillment of a desire they already harbor.

In effect, you’ll start tapping into the bubbling wellsprings of desire already in your prospects and letting them make the sale for you. Think of what a relief that is – no more trying to browbeat and cajole unmotivated people into wanting what you have! That game is for losers.

Says Browne, “The moral is simple: A salesman cannot change a buyer’s desires; he can only demonstrate better methods of satisfying them.”

It’s the same in copywriting, which is multiplied salesmanship. Trying to educate and motivate people into wanting what you offer is one of the most common and devastating mistakes.

It’s so much easier to find and then appeal directly to an audience that’s already motivated and let them do a big part of the work of selling themselves!

A Quick Example

Let’s say you’re advertising a savings and investment program designed to help people have enough money to retire someday. You could run a headline that says something like …

“New Survey Reveals That Only 1 in 12
Will Have Enough Money to Retire”

On the surface, this seems like a good, smart headline. It factually and credibly points out a problem that millions of people either have or will soon face.

But in my view it’s a weak headline. Here’s why …

The first rule of writing body copy is that your first few paragraphs should immediately pay off, or build upon, your headline. Coming off the headline above, you’d have to expand upon it and that means you’d have to waste your critical introductory paragraphs educating your audience about a problem they may face. In effect, you’d be trying to educate your audience into feeling a motivation. This doesn’t work!

Whenever you find yourself educating your readers about a problem they may have, consider it a red warning flag! If you have to educate people into realizing they have a problem, you’re already losing the battle.

Now please understand an important distinction. I am not talking about educating already-motivated prospects, those who know they have a serious problem or want, about the superiority of your solution. That kind of educating is fine!

I’m speaking about educating people into feeling a motivation in the first place. In effect, if your headline and initial body copy are saying something like, “Don’t you realize you’ve got a big problem here?” … you’re already losing the battle.

You’ll almost certainly trigger a far higher response by letting your headline identify people who already know they have a big problem or want … and then using your body copy to fan their preexisting flames of desire. In advertising, it’s a waste of money to try to educate readers into having a motivation! The motivation must already be there.

How the Master Wrote It

In our example, look at how much more efficiently a copy master like John Caples cuts right to the chase, by using his headline to attract the right audience (an already motivated one) to hear about a retirement income plan.

Caples’ famous headline was written for a retirement income plan available from the Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance Company, the first client John Caples ever had in his capacity as an account executive at BBDO. The ad Caples created pictured a smiling man, in his sixties, looking straight out at the reader while happily sitting in a rowboat, holding a fishing rod and reel. Under the photo, the bold headline said:

“To Men Who Want to Quit Work Someday”

Like a blast of trumpets, this headline instantly calls together the right audience – a motivated audience – of people who already know they want to plan now for a comfortable, worry-free retirement. Caples’ headline instantly assembles a group of already motivated, prequalified prospects front and center in the courtyard of his announcement, where he can persuade them with news about a solution they already want. He doesn’t have to start a fire of motivation, only feed the fire already burning!

How well did this Caples headline work?

As reported in the book The 100 Greatest Advertisements by Julian Watkins, this one ad, above all others tested by the company, was “a landmark of historic importance” for Phoenix Mutual. An executive at the company wrote, “To our astonishment, it produced nearly 3 times as many inquiries as its 25 predecessors had averaged. But most important of all, its volume of sales was larger by 4 times! … [It] paved the way for the decades of successful advertising which followed.”

There are many formulas for writing great headlines, and we’ll explore my favorites (those that work most consistently) in future Bullets. But there is one master rule you can take to the bank: Every headline you write should, at the very least, assemble the right audience, one already motivated to hear the rest of your story. If it doesn’t, your headline is weak and will hobble response.

Another Example

Let’s say you’re writing a space ad announcing a new psychological counseling service for troubled teens. Please don’t waste your headline by merely announcing the name and location of your new practice! Use it instead to attract your target audience of already-motivated prospects. Write a headline like:

“To Parents of a Troubled Adolescent.”

Top Gun, this is one of the most important copywriting secrets you’ll ever learn, one that many copywriters never come to understand, which is why they will always underperform those who get it …

Remember that in every medium – newspapers, the Internet, TV, radio, etc. – there are always two different audiences you can choose to write to. One audience – the unmotivated 95% – couldn’t care less about your message. Don’t bother writing to them because you will not succeed in motivating them!

The Real Reason Why Long Copy
Almost Always Outpulls Short

And by all means, don’t shorten your copy because you or your client may fear that this unmotivated 95% won’t read long copy. Take it for granted that they won’t and just write them off, as counterintuitive as that may feel.

The truth is, the unmotivated 95% won’t read short copy or long! So if you shorten your copy in a misguided attempt to get higher readership among the unmotivated 95%, you’ll lose that unmotivated 95% anyway. But you will also deprive the motivated 5% of the longer sales copy they need to make a favorable decision. You will waste 100% of your money if you downsize your message to accommodate the unmotivated 95%!

Write instead only to the motivated 5% and upsize your message to include everything your most motivated, eager-to-buy prospects want to know! Let your long copy sing out with all the benefits, proof elements, specifics, details, premiums, and special offers that your motivated 5% will eagerly welcome as they carefully consider making an important purchase.

How Do You Apply This in a Recession?

OK, I know what you may be thinking …

This sounds terrific, but exactly how do we apply this idea during hard economic times like now, when sales are falling almost everywhere, when prospects’ motivations are changing and the usual copy approaches don’t work nearly as well as they used to?

This Marketing Bullet is already running long, and I have promised to keep them fast, like bullets. So I’ll reserve this interesting question for your next Marketing Bullet. I’ll explain why I believe that recessions are the best opportunities for any copywriter to build his or her income and client base.

Recessions never affected my copywriting income. In fact, during recessions my client base always grew larger, my workload even heavier. In the next Marketing Bullet, I’ll explain why … and how you can achieve the same by applying in your own marketing efforts Harry Browne’s secret of how to sell anything, even in a recession, by tapping directly into your prospects’ preexisting motivations and letting your prospects almost completely sell themselves.

So until next time …

Sincere wishes for a good life
and (always!) higher response,

You start swaying to the music .. moving your head side to side and your shoulders to the beat of the music… you she her swaying her hips too… you try to attract.. you steal a look …she looks back noticing that your eyes are onto her… your eyes quickly shoots to the TV screen pretending not to stare but you know better…

You hope she will start the conversation first…. But fat chance as it does not happen that way… you wait and procrastinate out of fear.. then a jerk comes along and chat her up… you secretly vow to beat that jerk up if he should take advantage of her… but that does not happen… before you know it she walks with him to another table… you feel down and useless and lost… then she comes walking back… hope comes back and goes just as fast as she walks not to her table but out the exit.. gone for now and you hope to meet again …soon….

1 Secret to MORE CASH by year end 2009 !!!

 


 

 

If you happened upon this post with a search  engine … most probably you are looking for some  extra cash in these trying times… or maybe you  are looking for some part time revenue… or  maybe you just want to make more….

 Sorry to dissappoint … this post is anything but  the extra cash….

 You want more by year end? The secret is

PAY YOURSELF FIRST!

 You have heard of it before? Then have you acted  on it?

 How many times have you paid yourself first  before paying off those bills “even when you have  to pay the bare minimum on your credit card”?

  As a rule of thumb you can pay yourself first with  a 10% after tax income every month and work  upwards from there. 10% too much? Start from  5% then….. 

  The trick here is to keep doing it until it becomes  a HABIT.

 

 KEEP PAYING YOURSELF TILL IT BECOMES A HABIT!

 You would just spend the money anyway, if it  stays in your account which can be withdrawn with an ATM card. (yeah..you should deposit the money in an bank account without the ATM card)

Do it, take action NOW and you will knock yourself silly that you have not done it sooner. (i did)

AND YOU KNOW WHAT? If you have read all the way down here… i think that you are seriously considering the piece of old age advice above so I’ll give you ONE more tip for that extra cash by year end…

SAVE THAT ONE DOLLAR!

Yes.. it adds up. Save all your one dollar notes by the end of every day… you will be surprised that it adds up from 500 to 1000 extra dollars by year end….well that’s swell for a lil Christmas budget 🙂 ( i saved 1100++ in 2008, and i just put it into my savings acocunt)

Well, what do you think? Is it doable? Or do you have other advice? TELL US MORE!


Day dreamers – Wake up to REALITY!!!!

dsc_0057 

 

  I find it appalling that most youngsters today  tend towards an “entitlement mentality”. They want more $      for less work. They fight for private life vs work balance and have the gall to claim that they gave it all for  the sake of the company. Where has all the meaning of ‘work hard for your dough’ gone? Don’t they realize  without extra effort you will never excel in any single thing you do?

Hope the message below can wake them up to reality…

 
* The world does not owe you or anybody else a living. And it especially does not owe you riches quick, slow or otherwise.

* Nobody but you can make you rich. You’re going to have to do this yourself.

* There is no guaranteed fast or effortless way to do this. Realizing a big dream like yours will take intense study … laser-like focus … buckets of skull-sweat … the dedication of a Golden Retriever … unlimited uncompensated overtime … the persistence of a buzzing housefly … the patience of Job … the risk tolerance of a riverboat gambler … and the eternal optimism of Forrest Gump.

* Do it anyway. It’s worth it. In spades. And getting there is more than half the fun.

Enlighten me on this:

Why is the entitlement mentality prevalent amongst the young today? Is it their upbringing where everything is provided for?

Was it is over protectiveness of parents that sow the seeds of dependency in our young?

Work vs private life balance is important. Could you ever accept that at some point in your career or work life, work calls for more attention and sacrifice?

Comments, anyone?

 

My Top Ten Rules of Success – Donald J. Trump

If you’ve heard me speak, you may have noticed I emphasize several things repeatedly – never give up is one, being passionate is another, keeping focused is up there, and keeping your momentum runs a close fourth. I’ve learned those things from experience.

Here’s the complete top 10 list I give when I speak at colleges:

1. Never give up! Do not settle for remaining in your comfort zone. Remaining complacent is a good way to get nowhere.

2. Be passionate! If you love what you’re doing, it will never seem like work.

3. Be focused!Ask yourself: What should I be thinking about right now? Shut out interference. In this age of multitasking, this is a valuable technique to acquire.

4. Keep your momentum! Listen, apply and move forward. Do not procrastinate.

5. See yourself as victorious! That will focus you in the right direction.

6. Be tenacious! Being stubborn can work wonders.

7. Be lucky! The old saying, “The harder I work, the luckier I get” is absolutely right on.

8. Believe in yourself! If you don’t, no one else will either. Think of yourself as a one-man or one-woman army.

9. Ask yourself: What am I pretending not to see? There may be some great opportunities right around you, even if things aren’t looking so great. Great adversity can turn into great victory.

10. Look at the solution, not the problem. And never give up! Never never never give up. This thought deserves to be said (and remembered and applied) many times. It’s that important.

Good luck!
