Many of us make resolutions at New Year and when we make them, we have good intentions and are committed to the cause. Statistically however, most of them fail. Not because we didn’t really mean it, but simply because they weren’t well thought out goals with achievable outcomes.
NLP teaches us a really easy way to construct goals that our unconscious mind will deliver, often in ways we couldn’t have consciously conceived. I wrote a goal in 2006, stating that I wanted to leave my well paid job in September 2009, with a significant sum of money. I had no idea how that might work, but in April 2009 I was offered, and accepted, voluntary redundancy. I left at the end of October 2009 with a nice big cheque, 6 weeks later than planned because of a legal loophole the company initially over looked. A great testament to the power of a good goal, the unconscious mind and the law of attraction I think!

Did you know it’s impossible to feel bad if you smile?
Even if your smile is merely a forced upward movement of the corner of your lips, you will feel better. Honest!
There are scientific reasons for it. The muscles that are moved when you smile, exert pressure on your brain, which triggers a release of the happy hormone, Serotonin, which in turn induces a chemical feeling of well being. It won’t solve all your problems, but feeling better has to be a good start surely! Next time you are in a temper, feeling frustrated or sad, give it a try. Put a big smile on your face, the bigger and sillier the better, and notice the feeling of well being that it brings with it. Catching sight of yourself doing it is often enough to make you laugh out loud, by which point you’ve really broken into the cycle of whatever you were feeling, only moments before.
The most important thing in this exercise, is the fact that you are putting yourself back in control of your emotions. Rather than allowing which ever negative emotion was over taking you to dictate your behaviour, you are interrupting the pattern and giving yourself enough time to decide, how you want to feel.

As discussed on the Six Figure Mentors coffee call this morning, a great way to save yourself some valuable time for a small outlay, is to have a Pixelpipe account set for you.
This gives you 100 accounts where you can submit all the articles, videos and slideshows you create to from one place. Great for getting your stuff out there and driving some free traffic to your sites.
We did it through Fiverr.com, which if you haven’t seen before, is a site where you can get just about anything done for $5. It is quite amazing what people will do for $5!
We used a company called SEO5rr, through Fiverr.comyou and they set up a Pixelpipe account for $40. It’s $20 to have the 100 accounts opened and a further $20 if you want to them to put profile info and a picture etc. Here’s a link to one of their ‘gigs’ if you want to have a look. They also offer backlinks and other SEO things so check them out.
Imagine how long it would take you to log into 100 sites, create an account, upload a photo, add a bio etc then confirm it through an email link… We thought it was a very good value for $40 and they were very quick and efficient.
Last night we watched a webinar with Stuart Ross talking about the upcoming launch of the Six Figure Mentors 2.0. This has become the fastest growing on line business system and community that there is today.
Stuart and Daniel (Wagner) have been telling us for weeks that it was going to be big and great and jam packed full of value and whilst we didn’t disbelieve them, to be honest we’ve seen a few launches since we’ve been working online, and they all say that!
However, what we didn’t anticipate, was just how much there would be in the forthcoming system and we were blown away!
If you were to make a list of all the problems faced by online newbies, it would be a pretty big list and most of the issues encountered would be common to most people. Lack of technical know how, feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information available, feeling isolated and even ostracised, lack of direction and focus, not knowing where to start and in what order to do things, not knowing where to get help from etc etc etc and that was just our list!
The new SFM system is going to deal with all these issues and more besides! With ready made web pages that a complete beginner can personalise, an uncomplicated and comprehensive back office system with web hosting, support and autoresponders built in and all the training and guidance you’ll need, at whatever stage of your journey you’re at, I wish it had been available when we started!
The launch is imminent and access is only possible through a founding member, so register your interest with us today!
