How The Mass Media Masters Distorting Your Mind

At first glance, it would seem that positive thinking and Attention
Deficit Disorder (ADD) have nothing to do with one another.
But many of those with ADD develop negative thinking patterns
because they become frustrated by challenges and frequent
feelings of being overwhelmed.

Having a negative outlook then makes it even harder for all of
us to manage our daily challenges and motivate ourselves to
move forward.

Practicing positive thinking allows us to focus on our strengths
and accomplishments, which increases our happiness and
motivation. This, in turn, allows us to spend more time making
progress, and less time feeling down and stuck.

The following tips provide practical suggestions that you can
use to help you shift into more positive thinking patterns:

For help use the "30 Day Mental Cleanse"

1. Take Good Care of Yourself
It's much easier to be positive when you are eating well,
exercising, and getting enough rest.

2. Remind Yourself of the Things You Are Grateful For
Stresses and challenges don't seem quite as bad when you are
constantly reminding yourself of the things that are right in life.
Start every day taking just 60 seconds to stop and appreciate
the good things. This will make a huge difference in your outlook
3. Look for the Proof Instead of Making Assumptions
A fear of not being liked or accepted sometimes leads us to
assume that we know what others are thinking, but our fears
are usually not reality. Don't waste time worrying that you did
something wrong, unless you have proof that there is something
to worry about.

4. Refrain from Using Absolutes
Thinking and speaking in absolutes like 'always' and 'never'
makes the situation seem worse than it is, and programs your
brain into believing that certain people are incapable of delivering.

5. Detach From Negative Thoughts
Your thoughts can't hold any power over you if you don't indulge
them. If you notice yourself having a negative thought, detach
from it, release it, and don't follow it.

6. Squash the "ANTs"
In his book "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life,"
Dr. Daniel Amen talks about "ANTs" - Automatic Negative
Thoughts. These are the bad thoughts that are usually
reactionary, like "Those people are laughing, they must be
talking about me," or "The boss wants to see me? It must be bad!"
When you notice these thoughts, realize that they are nothing
more than ANTs and squash them!

7. Practice Lovin', Touchin' & Squeezin'
You don't have to be an expert to know the benefits of a good
hug. Positive physical contact with friends, loved ones, and even
pets, is an instant pick-me-up.

8. Increase Your Social Activity
By increasing social activity, you decrease loneliness. Surround
yourself with healthy, happy people, and their positive energy
will affect you in a positive way!

9. Volunteer for an Organization, Help another Person
The more positive energy you put out into the world, the more
you will receive in return. Everyone feels good after helping.
You can volunteer your time, your money, or your resources.

10. Use Pattern Interrupts to Combat Rumination
Rumination is like hyper-focus on something negative If you
find yourself ruminating, a great way to stop it is to interrupt the
pattern and force yourself to do something completely different.
Try changing your physical environment - go for a walk or
sit outside. You could also call a friend, pick up a book, or
turn on some music.

Mentoring for Free offers a great mastermind group that
specializes in creating pattern interrupts for negative thinking.
It's a weekly mastermind meeting of positve like minded people
in a teleconference setting.

The program is "The 30 Day Mental Cleanse". You can learn

7 Online Network Marketing Business Misconceptions

Much have been said about network marketing (MLM) of the
online variety. While a lot of people claim that it is a marvelous
way of earning an income on the internet. There's an equal
number of people who condemn it for reasons that are born
from the fears they have with something as seemingly novel
as online network marketing programs.

Which of these fears are true, and which are false?

A closer study on some of the issues raised against network
marketing online programs will reveal the truth behind the

1.Online network marketing is a “get rich quick” scheme.

It is not. You will have to invest some time and effort to achieve
the highest possible success in this field. Online network
marketing will not gain for you some passive income, at least
not immediately. You will have to develop your network and
fill it with dedicated individuals from whose efforts you will
earn recurring commissions.

2.Online network marketing is a pyramid scheme.

It is not. Online network marketing is a creative kind of direct
selling. Basically, a person is a customer of your network
marketing home based business program. Though unlike
other setups, they are given the opportunity to join you in this
business and earn an honest income, with your help because
of their purchase.

3.Online network marketing is illegal.

It is not. If online network marketing is illegal, direct selling
should likewise be considered as an illegal activity. Online
network marketing, after all, is a form of direct selling by its
very nature.

4.Online network marketing is unstable as any pyramid scheme

This is a false accusation. Pyramid schemes fail because they
don’t have a product to rely on. They depend on the money
they can CON from the multi-tiered “investors.” Online network
marketing is based on real products that are actually sold to
consumers. There is a real economy involved, which stabilizes
the strength of the businesses that support this kind of system

5.Online network marketing requires recruiting.

It does not. The term “recruiting” is quite misleading. You just
have to pre-sell your homebased network marketing
businesses products to earn some commissions. Consequently,
the people you manage to refer will become members of your
down line, and if they decide to pursue the earning opportunities
presented by your network marketing business itself, you could
also earn from their activities.

6.Online network marketing is just a fad.

Network marketing has been practiced by many entreprenuers
since the 60’s. With the advent of the internet, an online strategy
is just the logical evolution of this industry. Surely, something that
has become a popular sales technique for such a long time
cannot be considered as a passing fad.

7 Online network marketing programs are scams.
Though some fraudulent companies use network marketing
programs to hide their devious schemes. Most network
marketing programs are legit. But not all network marketing
programs are the same. It is the responsibility of the individual
to determine the credible network marketing programs
from dishonest ones. Due diligence is required before
committing to any kind of business undertaking.

Read your contract.

Online network marketing programs offer great
opportunities for amazing income which you could savor and
enjoy. Hesitations, of course, are always healthy in endeavors
like this. Do some investigating and you’ll discover some online
network marketing programs that hold much promise.

The best tool to help you determine what is a great network
marketing business to get involved in is this recording of the
Mentoring for Free training call on the 5 Pillars.
These are the five things you need in a network marketing
business to be successful.
Download the recording at this link "The 5 Pillars"

After you have listened to the recording, download this free ebook
"Success in 10 Steps" It explains how you can be successful
in your own homebased network marketing business.
There are no companies mentioned and no affiliate links.

be glad you did.

5 Scandalous Misconceptions That People Make About Network Marketing And How To Avoid Them

It seems network marketing has taken the world by storm.
This inventive manner of direct selling allows the customer to
become a representative of the network marketing program.
As a result, the customer turned sponsor would be given the
opportunity to earn from his efforts.

Network marketing has been misrepresented to the online
audience in recent years, further elevating its popularity to new
heights. Enticing a lot of people to join so called network marketing
programs in this day and age.

But only a few are succeeding.

The reason? It’s because countless network marketers are
committing the same mistakes over and over again. Instead of
learning from the errors of their predecessors, they fall victim
to the very same faults, thus jeopardizing their chances of
attaining success in the business of network marketing

What are these mistakes? And how can you avoid them?

1.Believing that MLM is a “get rich quick” scheme.
The fact is, you will have to work – and you will have to work
hard – to be able to achieve success with network marketing,
whether it is conducted online or offline. Though eventually,
you’d be able to receive recurring income from the sales that
would be generated by your down line.

You will have to extend a lot of effort to establish a solid team
of committed individuals who will share your devotion to the
program. Though all of this may seem like hard work, network
marketing remains a very rewarding opportunity for anyone who
would be wise enough to invest their time and energy to building
their network marketing homebased business

2.Believing your own hype.
And this haughty disposition could very well be your number
one obstacle to attaining success with your network marketing
business Don’t get me wrong. A certain level of confidence will
serve you well. After all, and you have to believe in your network
marketing business to be able to convince others to join the cause.
And this requires confidence – the right kind of confidence, that is.

3.Leads are useless.
This kind of attitude is doomed from the very beginning. Leads
are the lifeblood of any network marketing campaign.
Leads represent your prospects, your future recruits. Without
leads, your network marketing campaign is sure to be a failure.

4.Generating a certain volume of leads is enough.
Again, this is an attitude that would spell doom for your success.
Lead generation is, as it should be, a continuous commitment.
It should never cease. Even if you feel that you have generated
enough leads from which you could convert some into new team

There will come a time when all those leads would be exhausted.
What then? Where will you gather your earning potentials if you
have stopped looking for leads? A network marketer’s task is
to continuously – and unceasingly – discover and educate new
prospects everyday.

5.Lack of focus.
Many network marketers are being led to believe that they
should join as many MLM programs as allowable to provide
for themselves multiple streams of income from which they
could diversify their earnings.

This could prove dangerous.
Spreading yourself too thin by engaging in multiple programs at
the same time would make you lose your focus. Instead of
concentrating all your efforts to achieve success with one
program, you’d be dividing your limited time among several

The best way to deal with things is to firmly establish yourself a
solid down line from which you could earn some reccuring
income in a sustainable system at a substantial level. This way,
you’d be ensuring that you’ll receive some income from your
business even while you’re vacationing on the beach.

Knowledge, they say, is half the battle won.

Knowing the common mistakes that uneducated network
marketers make is the first step towards success, as it will
guarantee that you won’t fall prey to what has caused their
failure. Learn from them, and succeed where they have fallen.

To get the knowledge necessary to be successful in your
network marketing business. You need to be learning from
a team of people who are using and teaching a proven duplicatable
system. The system that I recommend is Mentoring for Free.

Network Marketers Using a Proven Duplicatable System, Beat Spammers Every Time

Systems Beat Goals Every Time!

This is the time of year when almost everyone reviews their
dreams and sets goals and targets for the new year, and that
is a GOOD thing! Always be clear about where you're going!

Always have a destination, an outcome, a "next step" or target
in mind. If you don't choose your goals, you are doomed to a life
without direction or purpose.

Always know "what's next" in life!

At the same time, here's an interesting question:
Would you rather have goals, or systems that automatically take
you where you want to go in life?

I think the answer is obvious, but few people seem to really
"get it." Goals are wonderful. As I just wrote, goals are good!

But systems are better.

The problem with goals is that they are always in the future.
They are something to be worked on and achieved as soon as
possible, but always in the future.

Systems support us and enrich our lives immediately, today,
right NOW!

Because they are in the future, goals are easier than systems.
Goals sound nice, they can be exciting, and there's a certain
safety in knowing that we can have goals "down the road"
without having to disrupt our lives today.

New systems, on the other hand, disrupt our lives--sometimes
very dramatically--and can upset important people around us.
A goal to start a business "soon" or "this year" is very different
than coming home late every night.

A goal to start "some day" is very different than spending every
weekend launching the new project. A goal to be slim, trim and
strong "this year" is very different than adding a daily workout
to your already hectic schedule.

Systems (or habits) are the golden path to anything we want
in life. Once you establish the system or pattern of exercising
every day, fitness is no longer a goal. It becomes the automatic,
inevitable result of what you "normally" do every single day.

Fitness is a "side effect" of your system!

This is true of just about anything you want in life. My bias is
that no one should ever set a "goal" to save or invest for the
future! What a silly thing to do! Instead, make the decision to
start investing immediately, then develop a system to make
saving automatic, fool-proof and easy.

The "goal" to save will never make you rich, but a system like
the payroll savings plan at work just might do the trick.

Similarly, never set a "goal" to improve your marriage! Instead,
develop a system that includes some quiet time every single day.
Establish a system of weekly dates, daily hugs and lots of laughter.

Develop habits (or "systems") for sharing and intimacy that
will predictably lead to the results you prefer.

Systems beat goals every time!

Year after year, I have clients who are eager to set sales "goals,"
but few who are prepared to change their daily behaviors and
develop systems that will guarantee more sales.

Systems make success automatic, but can be uncomfortable,
even painful, at first. In the end,

I recommend focusing on systems.

Goals excite the imagination and give us a preview of coming
attractions, but systems are the golden path to ultimate success.

Systems give us control and empower us immediately.

Systems will open doors and give you the life you truly want.

Monday's Marketing Misconception

I may make this a regular post, but for today!

Here is my view on a marketing misconception.

I'm driving down the highway this afternoon, when a billboard
catches my eye. It has big green lettering


And as I get closer I can make out the figures underneath the
writing. It's a bunch of girl scouts holding boxes of cookies.

Now before I could completely process the thought of everyone,
everyone knows. Family, friends, coworkers and church members.

Who have a daughter, niece, or grandaughter in the girl scouts.
Handing you one of those big glossy cookie order forms, to order
some girl scout cookies.

If anyone cares to send me some,
my favorite's are the peanut butter cookies.

My attention is grabbed by another billboard maybe a hundred
yards down the highway. But this one has a woman in a
police hat and shirt, with handcuffs.

Advertising for Ambiance "The Store for Lovers"
Valentines Day is almost here.

So now my thought is that a couple dozen guys will be stopping
at "Ambiance". And buying girl scout uniforms and cookies to
give to thier wife's and girlfriends for Valentines Day.

Because thats just the way some guys think.

How about you?

Have you seen any marketing misconceptions lately.
Feel free to post them in the comments.

Can Microsoft Fix Cure Relationship Marketing Virus

I recieved this story in an email today. I thought it was pretty
funny. So I thought I'd share with my readers.Hope you get a
good laugh out of it also

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon
noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing
that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.

In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and
now monitors all other system activities.

Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Golf 5.0, Hunting and
Fishing 7.5, and Drinking 3.6 now runs very seldom or not at all.

I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting
to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to
Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0.

Please help!


Troubled User.

Tech Support Reply:

Dear Troubled User:

This is a very common problem that men complain about. Many
people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it
is just a Utilities and Entertainment program.

Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its
Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete
Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0.

It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the
system once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0
because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this.

Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony-
Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife1.0 and work
on improving the situation.

I suggest installing the background application 'Yes Dear' to
alleviate software augmentation. The best course of action is
to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE because ultimately you
will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system
will return to normal anyway.

Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high
maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs,
such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2.

However, be very careful how you use these programs.

Improper use will cause the system to launch the program
Nag Nag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the
performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software.

I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0


DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short
Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will
cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,

Tech Support

If you feel your having trouble with your programming, my
suggestion would be to do a 30 Day Mental Cleanse. And learn
about the four personality types to alleviate the relationship

How to Avoid the Personality Crisis of Sponsoring, and Become a People Expert in 60 Minutes

I recieved a USB turntable for Christmas, a present from my
wife Lorelle.She would like me to turn my boxes of albums into
cd's, she probably wants me to get rid of them. This way she
can fill the space with more of her stuff.

So as I'm going through them, I spotted it. I forgot all about
this record. But as I pulled it from the box, there he was in all his
drunken glamrock glory.

The picture of a Personality Crisis

David Johanson and the New York Dolls. With the attitude
and swagger that the hair bands of the 80's were dying to achieve.
The lipstick and eyeliner along with the haystack hairdo's. They
cranked out some loud and brash Rock & Roll and defined a
style with their song "Personality Crisis".

It's personality roulette

This can also describe how a lot of network marketers go
about building their teams. They really dont know the inner
workings of the people they sponsor. Their just out to fill that
weak leg with 2392 people. Or fill all the levels necesary to get
paid in the new Matrix payplan.

How to pick your people

The smart way to people shop is to know their strong suits. And
determine how they will fit in and help grow your team. Which in
turn grows your commision check. But the big problem really is
not knowing their weaknesses.

Sponsoring a Yellow personality into a stairstep breakaway
plan will lead to a lot of misery for them. They like to help their
people, and nurture them all the way through the business. But
when their people breakaway, or cant make the system work.

They are the ones who feel all the guilt. And believe it's their
fault all their people are dropping out.

Fixing the personality emergency

The ones that drop out and jump from program to program are
the Blue personalities. Their always in a crisis, if this plans not
working the next one must be better. You will need to help them
stay focused on the outcome.

They need to make money fast, excitement is what keeps them
going. If not their gone, and enrolling in the new triple spinning
double helix comp plan.

The alarming truth about details

personalities on the other hand, want and need all the
details you can give them. Their going to read every word on
your wepage, and go through all the calculations in your comp
plan. They wont join your team right away.

But when they do, their in it for the long haul. Because they
hate to be wrong, so they will make it work. No matter how
long it takes.

People who drive us mad

Now the Red personality, you need to tell them about all the
money they can make. Then you need to sell them on all the
money their going to make. Also you will need to close them
on all the money they are going to make.

Because that's all that matter to them. The money, the money,
the money.

The personalities evidence leaves clues
