My First Online Marketing Product – “Almost all of those eBooks about creating money online have one solution in common: In order to succeed online, you have to create and then sell your own info products.
That could it be to put it succinctly. Write your own eBooks and then sell them. Best of all, get OTHERS to sell them.” (email from Paula Brett, Mon, Apr 12, 2010. Paula could be the wonderful Helpdesk person for anyone doing John Thornhill’s Masterclass – something I strongly recommend you are doing.
Finding something continues to be by biggest anxiety and ‘discourage-er’ during my online marketing efforts.
All the ramifications are mind-blowing. One I tried was reviewing and recommending various guitar courses. Using PPC I even got on-page 1 of Google. No sales.
Best keywords for Do-It-Yourself? No sales.
Now I have thought of ‘it’ – I am an authority when it comes to focusing on how it feels to become anxious, so my ‘it’ is “Anxiety”. Having decided the information just keeps leaping out at me. It could be the identical to when somebody says perhaps you have seen the new red Volkswagen – suddenly you will find new red Volkswagens everywhere.
I communicated my want to my fellow Masterclass students. The encouraging comments and actual material I can use (the anxieties of Masterclass-ers) just continue to come.
Next there was clearly an appealing article in the Brisbane Courier Mail entitled “Anxiety can serve us well” (April 6, 2010). Since the Courier Mail is a Rupert Murdoch paper the article might have appeared in London, New York and Moscow too for all those I know. Since I thought it a fantastic article I will discuss it here.
The author is Barton Goldsmith. There was no more info on Barton within the paper, but, inside Google age I soon found the following:
“Dr Barton Goldsmith is really a California-based marriage and family therapist and the author of Emotional Fitness at Work.”
He begins by saying “Many people think they must live anxiety-free. Not so. Anxiety is an element from the human condition.”
He procedes to cover these ideas:
It is very important to recollect (anxiety-creating) challenges lead to growth and development as humans. (My thought: I guess we had arrived all anxious about leaving our mothers on our first day of school. If we had not met and overcome this anxiety I suppose we would remain emotional 5-year-olds).
Anxiety lets us know when something isn’t quite befitting us. (Bit tricky, this place. When can it be ‘not quite right’ then when are we just ‘chickening out’).
The trick is always to learn how to use anxiety in positive ways. The first thing is usually to imagine what are the payoff will probably be once you surmount this concern. (This refers to what Dr. Dyer has been saying in the book “Excuses Begone!).
Feeling excited/scared can be fun. Think of dates once you were young or going on certain rides in the fun park. This is definitely anxiety most of us enjoy.
But as anxious pretty much the full time it is often a different story and now we have to do something about it. (My problem for the majority of of my life, but certainly not something we were inspired to ‘do something about’. The family doctor would likely show you to get on with life, which I guess is pretty good advice anyway, however it would have been nice to get used a number of techniques for doing this).
Your confidence could be shaken on the core and you can be blinded by fear. Dr Goldsmith says one with the best tools for coping with this would be to imagine the worst, then this best, then imagine what is more than likely to take place and hold onto that thought.
When anxiety strikes remember that you’ve got dealt with similar occurrences before and that you’ve got the tools to get through that one. Sit down, take several deep breaths and contemplate what exactly is worrying you. Chances are you already hold the answers you’ll need then when you relax you will note them. (When I think considered one of my chief anxieties in everyday life – not enough money – I can see that nothing really bad has happened because of insufficient money. I have never been hungry, never lost my house, etc. So what has been the use of my anxiety?).
Really we need to almost embrace anxiety, I guess, because without them life would be flat and meaningless and boring.
Embracing it inside the right way is the trick, I am sure. We need the correct strategies.
And since some people say they don’t suffer much from anxiety exactly what do we study from these and experts such as Dr Wayne Dyer? Plenty.
He has seven questions for ridding ourselves of your excuse-ridden (and anxious) life. I thoroughly recommend you look at book because an in-depth examine his seven questions is beyond the scope of the essay. However, listed here are the questions:
1) Is it true? He suggests the vast majority from the thoughts that run through our minds each day are untrue (especially those we use to produce excuses). He gives methods for riding ourselves of such thoughts.
2) Where did the excuses are derived from? He says we have to identify the cause in our excuses and cut ourselves off from it.
3) What could be the payoff? We find we some type of payoff while using these excuses, such as not ‘really’ failing. We need to avoid it.
4) What would my well being appear to be if I couldn’t use these excuses? This one is pretty self-explanatory, I think.
5) Can I build a rational reason for change? He gives four criteria: (i) it requires to make sense; (ii) It must be doable (iii) It must let you happy. (iv) It must be aligned with the callings of the soul.
6) Can I access universal cooperation in shedding old habits? Dr Dyer says the ‘Cardinal Virtues’ that originate from God are:
a) Reverence for life
b) Natural sincerity
We must strive to generate these part of our being.
7) Having ‘made it’ how do I continuously reinforce this new strategy for being? Again, self-explanatory, I think.
Of course I can only give you the barest bones on which Dr Dyer needs to say. I really do recommend you purchase his books for yourself. The two I have read (and am reading) are available from Amazon and you will locate them on my blog.
I could have my book ready by the end of June on the way to cope with your anxiety. I want to then convert it into a video and set up a subscription site (since I think anxiety is often a lifelong affair, ‘treatment’ needs to be ongoing). You can check on progress by going to my blog address.
Of course, you can find a million books and articles on anxiety and the way to cope with it.
Will mine be any different or better?
Yes – it will probably be my relationship while using reader, and that will be unique.
