TELL ME YOUR WHAT AND WHY -- AND I'LL SHOW YOU HOWWritten by Charles Lalonde
Continued from page 1
I find that most people have a difficult time defining their WHAT and WHY correctly. When doing this, you need to be very specific and focused. For example, you may define your WHAT and WHY this way: "I want to be a millionaire (the WHAT) so that I can help disadvantaged children reach their true potential (the WHY)." This is good, but may I suggest something even more powerful: "I want to have a million dollars in cash (the WHAT) so that I can open a self-development center and help disadvantaged children reach their true potential (the WHY)." It's very important for WHAT to be specific. In our first example, if you become a millionaire in assets like land, you won't have cash for your project to help children. Furthermore, WHY must also be specific because it's WHY, not WHAT, that motivates you to succeed. The following steps are recommended to establish your WHAT and WHY for success: 1. Make a list of everything you want, and then prioritize your list until you have narrowed it down to top five most important. 2. Now, write out in detail WHY you want these five things that you have identified as your WHAT. 3. Next, carefully analyze which one of these five things you want most. Remember, you must passionately want this one thing, or it will not have power to motivate you. 4. Finally, determine HOW you will achieve it and what training you will need to succeed. A quote by Albert E.N. Gray will provide you with a final thought on this subject: "But as long as you live, don't ever forget that while you may succeed beyond your fondest hopes and your greatest expectations, you will never succeed beyond purpose to which you are willing to surrender. Furthermore, your surrender will not be complete until you have formed habit of doing things that failures don't like to do." ___________________________________________________________

Save Money By Cutting Recurring ExpensesWritten by Joe Bingham

or list server company. But what about after 6 months? What about after a year? A one time script purchase is done quickly and paid for, usually at about same price as 3-4 months of paying recurring monthly fees for other's services. Even if you don't know how to install CGI scripts at this point, you can learn, or you can pay someone to do that for you. Often script owner is willing to provide that service. While that may be an extra expense it is still only a one time fee and less than paying recurring fees month after month, year after year. If you're in business to stay in business, it's easy to tell which is better alternative. And that's without even figuring in added professionalism you get when running everything from your own site. Now, I realize everyone's situation is different, but this is something I believe everyone needs to think about. Recurring monthly fees are just plain not justified if you can get same or better quality tool without them. It's same thing with merchant services that expect you to pay recurring monthly fees. It's unnecessary. All payment processors will take a commission off your sales, yes, but why pay them monthly fees as well? To help you out, I've prepared a list of services and tools I use and recommend. The list includes payment processors, scripts for mailing lists, auto responders, ad tracking, sending referrals, web hosting, and more. You can access it for free here: http://www.netplaynewsletters.com/rectools.html I think you'll agree that trimming your recurring monthly expenses is a good idea. Some of monthly fee services are quality and they do market themselves well around Internet. And I don't mean to knock them. Still, when it comes to saving money and increasing profits, don't forget there IS a less expensive alternative you can go with.
