Be A Risk Taker.

A goldfish jumping out of the water to escape to freedom. White background.

 

A goldfish jumping out of the water.. taking a risk. Did he make it? Probably not. But he wanted out of his confined situation. A few years ago, I got an email from one of my mentors, that simple said; “Felix, Should You Be Taking Risks?  Fear of the unknown is usually what prevents an individual from taking risks. Not all people are created equal and this includes one’s ability to tolerate the feeling of taking risks. However, just a little reminder, if you want to achieve something better, then you must not stay in the same condition forever. Keep moving. By now you should be taking risks and see how everything will be falling into place once you do this big leap of faith.”

2 reasons why you should not be having second thoughts about taking risks:

You need to experience new things  – You owe it to yourself to live your life to the fullest. Taking risks is definitely one way to do so. Life is such a meaningful endeavor for those who choose to learn the lessons it offers. If you are a coward who thinks that playing safe is the best way to live, then you are bypassing the opportunity to learn and mature with your experiences. Happier and more fulfilled people are brave enough to take risks. They have no regrets for the things they didn’t do and the opportunities they didn’t grab.

You will miss out your personal growth and development – Experience is the best teacher. I totally agree with this saying. If you fear taking risks, then you are no more than a comatose person whose life is only prolonged by machines. Hey, you are a thinking, moving and breathing person so don’t ever be paralyzed by fear! Mistakes and failures are parts of the winning process. Michael Jordan missed a lot of shots in his entire basketball career. NASA has failed numerous times in launching space rockets.

No one will laugh at you if you fail for the first time or for the ninth time. The important thing is that people see you as a brave person who wouldn’t give up until you are able to achieve your dreams. You will definitely grow and develop along the way. That is what matters! If you aren’t succeeding now, it might be the time to consider taking more risks.

Truth is, failures and mistakes aren’t bad things at all. In fact, true winners are shaped by disappointments and defeats. So, the next time you feel incapable of taking risks, imagine your dreams – who do you want to be? What do you want to have? Are these things not worth taking risks at all?

7 Effective Strategies to Get Your Goals This New Year

7-effective-strategies-to-get-your-goals-this-new-year

 

The New Year is finally here! It’s not too late to set your plans for 2017.  As the New Year  and a another chapter begins, you must plan to succeed and embrace change. And while starting over may seem difficult, a new start is something you owe to yourself.  There’s a proven method to achieving your goals. I’ve learned a lot from my mentors over the years and I applied many of these in 2016; I’ll share them with you today.

I wanna share with you the 7 Effective Strategies to Get Your Goals This New Year:

1. Know Your Why

Your goals must be aligned to your purpose and core values so you will always have the passion to work for it no matter the circumstances.

2. Be Specific

Goals like make more money, achieve financial and time freedom, and have more savings are doomed to fail because they lack specificity. For higher chances of succeeding, be more specific. Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals. This way, you can also easily track your progress.

3. Put it to Writing

Simply thinking about your goals doesn’t do you any justice. In fact, studies have shown that people who put their goals into writing increase the likelihood of achieving it by up to 70%. Once done with writing it down, you may also want to place the sticky notepads on places in your home that you can see all the time. This will serve as a reminder of the goals you want to achieve.

4. Create your Environment

Whatever is around you affects you, so it is highly suggested that you create a favorable environment for you. Keep a home office, de-clutter your space, and surround yourself with positive people who will always inspire you to do your best.

5. Only Have One Major Goal

When you put your efforts in too many things, you are absolutely bound to be out of track. So, only have one major goal in 2017, stick to it, and break it down to smaller, more achievable goals. Start small yet strong.

6. Focus on the Process

Focusing on the big picture has its perks, but it also has its downsides. So, I suggest you focus on the process itself. Suppose you aim to hit a 6-figure income in 2017, focus on how you will be able to achieve it – what skills can you hone? What training can you get? What kind of people would you rather hang around with? These are just some basic questions worth investing your money and time in. Besides these, you can also have a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly goal that you can start focusing on.

7. Forgive and forget about your failures

Whatever happened in your life this year is already part of an old chapter, so let it go with acceptance and face the New Year with confidence and faith. Your prior setbacks and failures don’t define you, your attitude and how you react will. Remember, persistence pays off. So, dust yourself off and get back in the saddle.

Life rewards those who work hard and smart for it!

How To Build Your Brand on the Internet

How To Build Your Brand on the Internet

 

Hello,

Today I would like to discuss branding online. Branding on the Internet is having the name, picture, logo or any representation of your business, company, products or services. Branding is the process of inculcating a unique image and name of products or services in the consumers’ minds. Branding can be done through advertising campaigns with theme consistency. Each Entrepreneur and Internet Marketer does branding differently. Branding is vital in online marketing because it establishes a differentiated presence that magnets and retains loyal clients.

However, the question is, how can you have successful branding?

Your brand name should comprise of only a few words – the shorter, the better. This will help your web visitors to easily remember and recognize your brand name. Concise branding will be beneficial in referrals.

The logo and/or picture of your brand must be unique. The design should not look similar to other brands because it can confuse your potential customers. Unique and impressive branding will be more memorable. How you present your brand to the world is how the world sees and remembers your brand.

Once you have established a unique brand name and logo, give it the exposure it needs. Your brand should be seen everywhere consistently. One good suggestion to expose your brand is through blog. A blog is one of the easiest way and less expensive tools to increase branding. Social media sites are also helpful branding tools since millions of people are using these daily. The more frequent people see your brand online, the higher your brand awareness is.

While exposure is the key, you have to make sure that you are exposing your brand positively. If you are utilizing blog or social media for branding, only publish and post relevant content. Creating valuable information is the best way of branding. Your audience will not only remember what your business logo or name is but what your brilliant ideas and expertise are. Remember, successful branding comes with credibility. Credibility and trust are two main things that you work on with branding. If you want to learn how to become an Entrepreneur online, you must understand branding. Branding is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur.

Build Relationships, Not Just Business.

Build-Network-business-relationships

Finally upgraded my home internet and phone system so that I can get ready to take business to the next level. One of the keys to being successful in business today is technology, specifically the internet. But today I want to talk about the one aspect of business will has been around for ages and will be around for many years to come and that is “relationships”. MLM and Direct Sales (Social Marketing) is all about… relationships, relationships and more relationships… In fact, I’m rarely concerned with whether a person wants to or does join my business; my only concern is how much of a relationship can I build with that person.

Relationships are the essence of a home based business, and the more trust, friendship and depth you have in a relationship, the more stable that relationship will be whether business or personal. So when I look for my future business partners, I’m really looking for people who I can establish a long-term relationship with that is built on a foundation of trust and will grow to be beneficial all across the board for everyone involved.

Your home based business can be far more solid stable and thriving when it’s built upon principles of relationship building rather than “recruiting” and just sales. Let’s be honest, who wants to be recruited or feel like they are being hustled? Building a home based business isn’t the army! People want to choose who they join. People want to be mentored, not recruited. So enough of my rant, it’s time dig into the roots of what I’m actually doing.

The whole scope of this thing blows me away! To think… I’m part of a business that anyone can build, duplicate for the next 5, 10, 20 years and you can make a ton of money if you can follow directions very well… Wow, that’s powerful stuff. If you don’t believe me, check this out!

If you’re serious about building a real long-term business that pays you for the rest of your life, and pain-saving your life, then you can go ahead and give me a call direct. Look forward to joining forces with you.

Take care,
Felix

Even though I loved what I did, I grew tired of working a job I didn’t really enjoy, and that I knew would never create the life I deserved and the freedom I wanted.

And there was nothing worse than going to bed every night with the feeling that what I was reaching for, felt so far away.

So I decided to do something about it.

Believe it or not, the decision alone did wonders for me. It gave me a feeling of control and hope that I never felt working for somebody else!

And now I know why.

Social Media – Public Relations Tool for Small Business

20140617-211038-76238658.jpg

Public relations entails charm offensive, shuttle diplomacy and all manner of sales gimmicks associated with improving the entire organization’s image in the eyes of the public as well as its customers. It is done continuously in regards to advertisement that only comes when a product/service has come to the market or it is not performing in the expected manner.

A public relations officer in many occasions is an employee of the organization and is supposed to ensure that no matter what, the image of the organization remains as clean, attractive and elaborate as possible. On the other hand social media is a contemporary method of communicating through internet.

Power Your PR with Social Media
For an organization to prosper in its public relations endeavor, it has to ensure that it’s public relations department and the information communication technology department work in tandem. This is because with the advent of the social media, it is as prejudicial as it is malicious to separate the two. Many people have opted to go online in all their day to day activities and therefore social media is inevitable for any organization with the right kind of management, goals and aspirations.

As earlier mentioned public relations involves preserving and/or maintaining the image of the entire organization in the eyes of the public and its customer and this cannot be done only through traditional media. Social media has in fact played a major role in maintain and managing the public relations or PR of the company.

Public relations and social media have worked wonders in terms of turning around the organizations profitability and way of doing things. They have improved organizations that were in the brink of collapse and made them blue chips. Organizations that were little known have become a darling of the media. Indeed the power of both of them cannot be underestimated in anyway. They are just the right tools for the contemporary marketing environment.

Any organization that employs the two will end up with increased sales and revenue hence more growth in the long run. Social media in fact has become a cheaper means of marketing than traditional media. Their costs are second to none. Their results are impressive and faster as compared to any other means of marketing. People will get to know an organization that uses social media as PR faster as compared to an organization that uses the usual and old means to market itself.

Visualizing Success: 6 Ways To Set Yourself Apart In Business

The Power Of Visualizations

 

(BPT) – More than half a million new businesses emerge onto the scene over the course of each month, according to Forbes Entrepreneurs. But even more businesses shut down than start up. Whether you’re a new business owner or an employee looking to take your career to the next level, it’s definitely a competitive environment. How can you differentiate yourself from the millions of others?

Developing a purpose and setting goals to accomplish that purpose is the key to success,” says Per Wickstrom, founder of Best Drug Rehabilitation and successful business leader. “As an individual, you have a unique and fresh perspective, so it’s important to let that shine through.”

Wickstrom offers his proven tips for setting yourself apart from the rest to reach your business and career goals:

Give back to the community

Never underestimate the power of giving back to your surrounding community. The local community is what helps your business grow, and giving back is immensely rewarding and valuable. From volunteer days to donation drives, there are hundreds of ways for you and your business to give back to the community.

Tell your unique story

All successful people have role models and mentors from which they draw inspiration and knowledge, but it’s important to continue to develop your own individual style and viewpoint. How did you get where you are today? Don’t be afraid to be your dynamic and complex self.

Continue to learn

Commit to learning something new each and every day. To be innovating and create new products and services, you need to stay on top of the trends and news in your industry. Keep an open mind and always be ready to absorb as much information as you can. Being flexible and adaptable are some of the most valuable assets.

Learn from your mistakes

Of course you’ll never make it to the top without learning from your many mistakes along the way. There are very few “overnight successes” in the world, and it’s likely you’ll spend years working towards your greatest accomplishments. When you experience a setback, don’t let it overwhelm your rational thinking. Instead, let it fuel your motivation on the road to achieving your goals.

Keep productivity top of mind

When collaborating with others, meetings can be both incredibly productive or a complete waste of time. Keep your meetings and brainstorm sessions compelling and energetic without letting them run too long. Put away your smartphone and other devices to focus on the task at hand.

Focus on your passion

Successful entrepreneurs and business leaders are not successful because they let money drive them. Instead, they focus on their passion and spend time working on a vision that pulls them forward. While this involves a bit of risk, every successful person must take that leap in order to develop their goals and dreams. When you visualize your success, it means you believe what you want is more than possible.

For anyone seeking validation that rehabilitation works, Per Wickstrom’s success is more than enough evidence. For more information and influential tips on success, visit perwickstom.com.
