If you have been in network marketing and are serious about what you are doing, you probably have bought or thought about buying software.Lucky for me I knew many place where I could get different types of software and get it for free. Then you have thousands of people buying this and that, don’t know how to use it then shoot themselves in the foot with it and maybe stumble upon it a couple months later. Much of it is just crap to begin with. It might work but it doesn’t bring you any results in terms of business growth.Soft software is very complicated and can take several weeks or even longer to learn, let alone master it. If its a monthly fee associated with it, well you can develop a very negative view of things if you don’t figure it out quick.Some examples of software might be* Social Network Friend Adder
* Some Keyword Research Tool
* An automated poster for ads, comments, spam basically
* Maybe something that will automatically post backlinks for your siteSome of these things can be good and there are plenty more with a million versions of each wanting you to buy what they have because its better than everything else.Its your next money maker!!! I was using this one piece of software that I had access to free and many people were paying 150$ a month for. It was a very good tool I had in my belt and it took me a long time to figure out how to use it properly. I was glad I wasn’t paying for it but at the same time felt dishonest. There forums were blowing up with people throwing questions, complaints, stories, ideas etc on how to use it best. Every once in a while you read a story about someone who was making it big and put the puzzle together just right. He then made an eBook and sold it for 50$ to thousands of people. Opportunities can stem from anywhere in this business.The bad thing about software could be besides the monthly fees, if any, time to learn and the projection it creates among people. A projection that says “Yes!! I just bought this cool piece of whatever!! Now I am going to make bank!!” And before you know it the guy shoots himself in the foot and is done with it.Bottom line is do your research and find reviews before you buy anything. Ask yourself-Do I really need this? Can I invest my money into something else that might be more useful. You might get all excited about something from being hyped up to find out you are being impulsive and looking for shoebox full of cash.
Do you need help with martial arts motivation? Is it difficult to find the time to practice? Do you know that you “should” be practicing a lot more? There is an easy way to start to overcome your particular challenge….Personal Martial-Arts ChallengesThere have been a few times in my life when I have lapsed in my martial-arts practice. Fortunately, I overcame my tendencies toward practice procrastination.And after years, I think I can help you, too….Let’s start the discussion with a couple of observations from the last few years in the Pascal household:- My daughter really wanted to be a gymnast when she was younger. She took a couple of years of formal classes. I noticed that no matter how much “Mom and Pop” tried, she wouldn’t practice outside of class.- Last year, she moved on to fencing. She loves it and wants to compete someday. Yet again, I have noticed that she won’t practice outside of class, even when Mom (Kate) is practicing. I have offered to help a zillion times.And so you don’t think that I am picking on little Quinn, here’s a personal observation:- As soon as I declare that I am on a diet, I feel deprived. Even if I am going to eat the same food that I had been eating for the previous week, just the label causes me to feel restricted. And I look to go off the diet as soon as possible … and the new way of eating disappears.Martial Arts TrainingSo, what does this have to do with martial-arts training?Well, the observations helped me to make a few educated guesses. And that was the first step in changing the behavior.You see, sometimes, we lack motivation, because we have told our brains over and over that something takes work, that it will take us out of our comfort zone, and that it will require a kind of effort that we just don’t have the will to act upon.So, how can we convince our brains to get motivated? At first, I suggest that we trick them.If you have to drive to go to martial arts class, combine the class with other errands that will take you to that part of town. Now, you aren’t trudging all the way over to class; you are just completing your errand/to-do list, and martial arts practice happens to be one item on the list.Or if just the thought of 100 kicks in a row is enough to plant your tush in the cushy chair and keep it planted, then try performing one kick a day … but in super slow motion.After all, you wouldn’t resist performing just one measly kick, would you? One? The idea, for now, is to sneak up on your lack of action.Oh, and by the way, you can’t just read about motivation. The thoughts have to be linked with actions … that’s what I am here for.
