4 Things To Give Up For Success



Take a moment and think about where you are. Not the street you are on. Think about where you are in life.

How does where you are match with where you wanted to be? I think about this often. It is especially important to me as the year winds down.

What were my plans last January? Am I where I planned to be? Did I achieve what I intended? If not, why not?

You have to give up what you are to be all you can be. That’s just common sense. Most people you value made many changes in their lives. The important changes were internal. They changed attitudes. They changed how life affected them. They determined the person they wanted to be and became that person.

Everyone has the ability to change. The question is, “What about me do I have to change?”

You Can Make Money Online

“You can make money online.”

Understand that.

Believe it.

Repeat before you fall asleep: “I can make money on the Internet.”

Make that your mantra.

There are many people from all walks of life searching for ways to make more money.  The Internet is full of opportunities. Search for jobs or work at home possibilities and what comes up is usually a lot of hype!

Many offers sell “The Dream”. The Dream is telling you how you can make bazillion bucks while you sleep. Some top earners make millions on the Internet. They show you bank account records and sales records to prove what they do is real. But many selling the dream don’t actually make much money at all.

Now, there are a handful of people – I know many of them – that are Internet millionaires. These folks tell you the truth. They make money selling what they know, often teaching others how to make money online. Many develop products valuable to us working online.

What separates them from you is:

How To Keep The Customer - canstockphoto14935677 The Purpose of Business is . . . . 

In 2001 Harvard Business Review asked business gurus who their favorite gurus were and Peter Drucker was in the top 3. You don’t need an MBA or business background to appreciate Drucker’s take on business. His simple approach is this, “The purpose of business is to create customers.”

Make More Sales With Long-Form Content

share your story - canstockphoto9867585 Thinking recently about long-form content caused  me to reflect on my blogging history.  I started long ago designing web sites with an expensive and complicted software package. What a headache! A couple of years ago I switched to WordPress and my life got much, much easier.

Using WP still requires solid posts delivering value to your readers. Too many messages come to my inbox that just sell. They don’t offer value. Many don’t make money online because they just sell, sell, sell. They send out emails that sell. Or are designed to sell a product or service. The point is most not making money online ignore lessons easily learned by watching successful Internet entrepreneurs.

Get More From Twitter


I schedule 6 or more tweets a day and tweet randomly when something of value comes to mind. I also use Twitter as a key part of my Internet advertising for niche sites and product offers.

However, the 140 character max tweet does pose a few problems. That’s especially true when attaching an image to a tweet. Ann Smarty knows Twitter and posted the following article recently. I’m passing it along to you and hope you try some of the recommended tools.

Tweet Productively: Tools to Break Long Text into Tweets Easily

Posted by Ann Smarty to Social Media

Twitter is a great platform, but the microblogging nature of it can be a flaw for many. In the beginning the use of 140 characters made sense. Now it is a little harder to conform to that size, and people are always trying to find ways around it.

Luckily, there are tools that let you break down long texts, or circumvent the rule. These five are must-haves for your bookmark list.

Tall Tweets

Tall Tweets gives you two options for extending your tweet: create tweetstorms (multiple posts that make up a larger discussion on your feed), or a text image that people can view and read. Both allow you to get over the 140 character limit in a readable way.

In addition, you can use a highlighter in the text to make certain words or sentences stand out to the reader.
