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.

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 LoA Tip: Perseverance and the Law of Attraction

Friday, November 26th, 2010

“The temptation when the path to success gets too bumpy is to leap back into the comfort zone. Don’t. Keep pushing forward, always forward. The comfort zone is the land of dreams and wishes. Success is the land of results, where all those dreams come true.” -Mark Burnett, Creator of Survivor.

All the best fruit is at the end of the branches, so take a big step out of your comfort zone!

To your success,

My Daily LoA Tip: Creativity and the Law of Attraction

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

You are a creative manifestation of the universe becoming conscious of itself.

Creation is the act of turning nothing into something.

Tapping into the creative source within you brings the world into alignment with your thoughts, and your desires, your dreams and your destiny all manifest into the real world without effort, because it’s energy that creates creation.

When you put your creative expressive energy – the essence of your soul – into your dreams, their manifestation becomes truly effortless.

To your success,

My Daily LoA Tip: Believe in You

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Manifestation can be difficult if you don’t feel deserving.

The Law of Attraction works on feelings, and your feelings will not be aligned until you begin to feel some love and gratitude for yourself.

So take some time today to stop and appreciate yourself and feel gratitude for the impact you’re making in this world. You deserve success!

Regards,
Michael

PS – There’s a program that you can listen to for just 15 minutes each day that will help you feel better, believe stronger and manifest effortlessly. It’s called the Daily Manifestation Meditation, and you can try it free, here.

My Daily LoA Tip: What a Hypnotist Knows About the Law of Attraction

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

World-famous hypnotherapist Milton H. Erickson said, “A goal without a date is just a dream.”

When you write your goals (and I hope you do), be sure to attach a specific date to that goal. Without a date, your unconscious mind will hold it in perpetual limbo and you will not vibrate with that intention.

The best way to write and visualize your goal to make the Law of Attraction work, is to state it, see it, hear it and feel it as if you have it NOW – present tense.

“I now have $1,000,000 net.”

In order for your unconscious mind and the universe to manfest a goal, you have to feel like you have it now.

Of course, such a statement can easily feel like a lie, especially if you only have $42 in the bank. And that’s why it’s so important to attach a date, as well as what you’ll see, hear and feel when you’ve got it.

“It is now March 15, 2011, and I have $1,000,000 net in my accounts. I can see the figures on my financial statement, I can hear my financial advisor telling me how well I’m doing, and I feel happy, prosperous and accomplished.”

Just this one little change will make a huge difference in your manifestation results, because you’ll begin vibrating on a level the universe can understand.

My Daily LoA Tip: Being at Cause

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

One key to manifesting is being at Cause.

In every situation, you can either find yourself at cause for the situation, or at the effect of something else.

Being at Cause gives you power. Being at effect gets you stuck.

Get in the habit of asking yourself, “How am I at cause in this situation?”

My Daily LoA Tip: Obstacles into Opportunities

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Begin to see obstacles instead as opportunities.

Each obstacle is an opportunity to learn, exercise, grow and enrich yourself. They’re part of the journey. Learn to celebrate them, rather than damn them.

Without movement, you can’t be obstructed, so the very fact that you experience an obstacle means you are moving towards your goals.

Turn each obstacle into a learning and the Law of Attraction will reward you handsomely.

To your success,

My Daily LoA Tip: Thoughts and the Law of Attraction

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Since “thoughts become things,” choose to have more of them on purpose.

Begin thinking about your thinking and start replacing some of the more stressful, petty, dramatic and negative thoughts with those of things you want to manifest.

The Law of Attraction will respond in kind and with abundance.

To your success,
Michael Stevenson
