What are you digging for?

Monday, November 25th, 2013

ShovelOne day, a man decides that he wants to be wealthy, important, successful.

So he goes down to the river and decides he’s going to dig for treasure. He’s looking for buried cash.

He digs and digs for hours on end, but finds nothing but rocks.

He digs through the morning and beyond lunch, completely forgetting to eat. He digs through the afternoon and into the evening, frustrated that all he keeps finding are rocks, and tossing them aside.

He finally retires for the night, dejected and worn out and feeling like a failure.

The next day, he’s out making holes again.

He keeps at it for days. No treasure chests, no mason jars, no cash.

One day, a guy drives up in a brand new Porsche and parks just a few yards away.

With a sidelong glance, the digging man thinks he’s obviously privileged, driving a car like that.

While the man digs, the rich man waits and watches.

The digging man works through lunch, while the rich man snoozes.

With each push of the shovel, the digging man’s disdain grows. He wonders why he’s working all day, with nothing to show for it, while the rich man relaxes in his air-conditioned Porsche. It doesn’t seem fair.

He finally storms over to the man’s car and yells, “How come you’ve got so much money?! I deserve to have a nice home! I deserve to have opportunities like you! I deserve a Porsche, DAMNIT! It’s not fair!!!”

To which the rich man replies, “It’s easy, brother. Those rocks you’ve been shoveling are gold and you’re re leaving PILES of it on the river bank, every day. All I do is wait for the opportunities you’re leaving behind. All you’ve got to do is take it, but you don’t… You just leave it behind for others to take!”

How many opportunities are you missing in life?

How many great ideas or passions have you passed up thinking, “That’s not for me,” or, “Now’s not the right time,” while someone else comes and snatches it up, effortlessly?

How many times have you looked at others and thought, “Why is it so easy for them? Why don’t I have those kinds of opportunities?”

Your whole life you’ve been digging up piles of gold. Everything you have done, heard, seen and learned are the experiences that have made YOU the treasure that you are, right now.

YOU are the gold.

The moment of now is a gift… that’s why it’s called “the present”

Friday, June 15th, 2012

You will never be more ready to achieve your dreams than right now, because your most important resource is time. It’s the only thing you cannot get back.

Get out of your comfort zone and believe in yourself as much as I do. All it takes is a decision and for you to take action right now.

The raw truth about success and transformation

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Transformation begins not by waiting for the right circumstances, but by making commitments that create the right circumstances, right now.

We rarely have the money until we create a commitment to use it.

We never have the time, until we truly commit to doing that which we want.

Life does not reward the uncommitted. Until you commit, everything will stand in your way.

A little blue pill for your marketing?

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Having been a business owner and marketer for seventeen years, and training people to start their own businesses for over six years now, I’m often asked how to turn a business around fast to make money.

Entrepreneurs today think they’re are facing a difficult economy. “Nobody’s buying,” is a phrase I hear a lot these days.

My usually reply is, “Really? I hadn’t noticed.”

The fact is, if…

  • You’re selling something of value
  • and, your prospective clients have a need for it
  • and, your price point is strategically positioned
  • AND, you’re really speaking to your prospects

… then you’re more than likely to do well, regardless of the state of the economy.

The problem is simple.  If you’re not making money today, it’s likely that…

Your Marketing is Impotent.

It’s limp.  It doesn’t stand out.  It’s underwhelming.  (And no, it’s not because the water’s cold.)

If you want your marketing to work, it needs to really speak to people.

The problem is, most business owners who are masquerading as marketers today think their audience is “everyone.”  This is, in my opinion, one of the top five marketing mistakes that will bankrupt them quickly.

If your market is “everyone,” your chances of crafting a message that touches them all, speaks to them all, and moves them all to action is virtually nil.  Even people who would have a legitimate need for your product or service won’t be interested, because the copy won’t be compelling, even to them!

Niche marketing is not about being a big fish in a small pond, as some “marketing trainers” like to teach you.  It’s about targeting a group so well that you know them inside and out.  You know what they value, what they believe, what their interests are, where they congregate, what they read, and you know how to speak to them in ways that compel them.

It’s far more profitable to have 20% of a niche because you knew what to say to them, than 0% of everyone.

The fact is, unless you’re willing to make a real statement and stick by it – even if others complain – you’re not likely to connect with anyone.

“The risk of insult is the price of clarity.” -Roy H. Williams

One of my NLP graduates made a brilliant business card that said he specialized in helping you, “Have better sex, quit smoking, lose weight, blah, blah, blah.”  Everybody talked about it and it really stood out.

The problem is, a few people complained and said that it might be offensive.  So he changed it to “More intimacy, blah, blah, blah.”  Now, it’s just a business card.  It goes where they all do – to the big circular business card heaven under the desk – without even a second glance.

Did the title of this article or the statement of impotence offend you, disturb you, shock or intrigue you?  GOOD.  That’s because I’m talking to you.  If I had just churned out another blog article on “Niche Marketing for Everyone,” you would have hit the back button in three seconds.

Your task after reading this article (should you choose to accept it) is to find a market you resonate with, craft a message that is undeniably you, and then deliver it congruently.  Grab people by the ears and make them listen.

Then, stand by it.  Defend it rigorously.  Even if some people complain.  It’s the only way you’ll be noticed among all the other impotent noise.

Please share and comment below and let me know what your little blue marketing pill is.

My Daily Law of Attraction Tip: Dreams

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

When you set goals, do you just choose them intellectually, or do you dream them?

The “Big U’s” (your Unconscious & the Universe) don’t respond well to intellectual words. They respond to to pictures, sounds, and most importantly, feelings.

Take some time to close your eyes and put yourself at the goal. Experience it. See it, hear it and generate strong feelings toward it, and it will be yours.

To your success,
Michael Stevenson

My Daily Law of Attraction Tip: Pamper Yourself to Better Feelings

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

My Daily Law of Attraction Tip: Money

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Money demands attention on money.

It’s often said that if you do what you love, the money will come. That’s somewhat true.

If you do what you love, opportunities for money will be abundant. However, if you avoid focusing on money at all, you’ll likely end up fulfilled and broke.

So, if you’re fulfilled, but not able to pay the rent, spend some time to manifest your money by putting some energy toward that goal and you’ll begin attracting it.

This doesn’t mean focusing on “I need to pay the rent!”  Focusing on necessity will attract only what you need and no more.  Wouldn’t it be better to focus on abundance?

To your success,
Michael
