if you always have a mind set of fear that things will not work out.If you want to be successful entrepreneur then you have to let go of your fear.Listen to this blog talk radio broadcast from Jay Kubassek who with Stuart Ross have created the Six Figure Mentors internet marketing training academy.
Listen the broadcast which runs for about 30 mins below..
I meditate.Alot,as in every day.Why?Until you start to know your mind you will have no idea just how wild it is and how much control it has over you.
People talk about getting focused all the time so much it’s become a cliche.What people need to understand is that to get a focus that lasts the mind has to be tamed and controlled so it serves us, not the other way round.
So the way to achieve this is to sit comfortably in a chair close our eyes and start to observe our mind.This will be very easy as our mind will immediately say “well this is boring sitting in this chair,get up and go and have some fun”
We believe our mind is on our side but in reality it is run by our delusions that will be the cause of so much suffering in our life.Our mind kids us into thinking that our external world determines whether we are happy or sad but if you check I am sure you can remember when you were at a beautiful holiday destination but had a heated argument with your partner and felt miserable.You state of mind and the outer world are not related.By training the mind you can be happy all the time.
What you must do at this point is ignore the rants of your mind.Instead you must look for an anchor to which you can tie your wild mind.In this way you can start to bring it under control.The most common practice that gives you this anchor is the breath.I want you to focus on it as it enters and leaves your nose.
Just start,do it for five minutes in the morning and slowly you will start to perceive gaps in all the random thoughts of your wild deluded mind.As your meditations get longer and deeper you will start to feel a great sense of inner peace that you can carry out into your daily life.
If your focus is building a business then it will help you here.We are under great pressure to deliver excellent customer service and with a calm and peaceful mind you can always deal with difficult situations, difficult clients,without losing your temper.
Calming your mind will add to your bottom line.I long for the day when meditation becomes common practice in the work place.
If you are a boss have the courage to introduce it in your company.Remember a happy workforce is a hard working workforce.
As internet marketers we want to spend most of our time working
on the things that will bring in the most revenue and for me
that is product creation.
So as much as possible we need to outsource the more mundane
aspects of making a living online.
Now there are many outsourcing services but if you are really on a tight budget then I recommend you go with Fiverr.comThis site has people willing to perform various tasks for you for just $5.
So all you have to do is find someone on the site who is willing to do the job you want done.Once you decide on who is going to do the job you pay your $5 into Fiverr who hold the money until the task is done to your satisfaction.
I have used this service to syndicate videos,builder headers for blogs and do various social media jobs.In all case I have found the standard of work to be good. Don’t expect to find someone to do a complex job,you must got to Elance or O Desk for that.
Simple jobs is what this site is about.
So try it now for some tedious job you have no time for.It will free you up to do the more important stuff.
Yours in Mastery

1.Reply to comments.It is true that many comments are just spam placed on your site merely to get back links.But some comments are genuine and you should reply as someone has taken time out of their day to comment on your blog post.So the least you can do is respond.If the comment is long and adds real value that give it a detailed response not just “thanks for your great comments”.
2.If someone mentions you on social media or a blog go and thank them.To track a mention of your name use Google Alerts and set up your name or business and the keyword phrase.Then once a week check your alerts and see who has mentioned you.If they talk about you in a nice way thank them.
3.Use the like and tweet buttons a lot when you find something of value.It will spread your name and hopefully people will like and follow you back.
4.Decrease your page load time.A page heavy with graphics and images will frustrate your visitor and they will more likely hit the back button.Also I have heard page load time has an effect on your Google ranking so re visit your site and remove anything that slows the load time down.
5.Lay off the sales pitches.Don’t you run a mile when someone who has just joined some MLM program launches into their sales pitch and may even take you through a Power Point presentation.If you help people they will buy from you because they have grown to know like and trust you.Let your site or blog do the selling.
6.Write an evergreen post i.e. one that will survive the test of time.Sure you need to report on the current trends but you also need to write about timeless truths.These become your landmark posts and are longer in length than most you do.These are the posts that get ranked by Google.They will take more time to research but start one now and get it posted.

1. Following trends in your niche and start commenting on them.Give your take on what is happening don’t just report the news.
2. Leverage other profiles
The more common one is to have your Tweets appear on Facebook.There are numerous applications that will automatically publish your Tweets on Facebook.
3.Ensure your profile image is actually a picture of you if it “brand you” that you want to promote.Avoid cartoon characters and photos of inanimate objects.If you have a company and it has a logo that is OK.
4.Tweet frequently and you will appear in the Twitter public timeline which will increase your online presence.But don’t just tweet about anything,make sure it is relevant.
5.Be conversational and ask questions and you will get more followers,but avoid talking about yourself too much!Talk about someone else or a current topic.In short add value to people’s life.Make their life better for having read your Tweet.
6.Tweet and the right time.As most users are in the US then Tweet in the morning and evening US time across all the US time zones.
7.Just be yourself and write about what you are passionate about and the followers will come.
Here’s a video I made about changing your Facebook Newsfeed settings so that you only see the posts you want to see.It can be useful if you want to focus on say Fan Pages you follow.What settings work best for you?Leave your comments below.
