One Minute Power Tip:

To live a great life, Ask the right Questions:

Questions have great power. One right question asked at the right time can change the direction of our lives.

So, the quality of the questions that we ask ourselves every day is VERY important.

If our life is not going in the direction that will ultimately lead us to our goals, one of the problems may be the questions that we ask ourselves. It may be time to reframe some of the questions.

Here are a few examples:
Original question: What am I getting?
Reframed question: What am I becoming?

Original question: Why is this happening to me?
Reframed question: What can I learn from this?

Original question: Why can’t he/she understand me?
Reframed question: How can I communicate so that he/she can understand me?

I urge you to look at some of the common questions that you ask yourself and see how you can reframe them to make them more effective.

Tips for your Happiness

Limit The Rate of Changes in Your Life

Remember, rapid change causes you excess stress. Try to limit the amount of change in your life.

Patterns are good and stress free. If you are able to keep your life as change free as possible the better.

Don’t schedule any changes that are not absolutely necessary.

Also, if you are getting a new job, don’t take on any other responsibilities at the same time.

If you must make changes, give yourself time to adjust to those changes that you are experiencing.

Once you are acclimated, then you can decide on any new changes that you want to add.

Tips for your Health

When Trying a new Nutrition Plan or Diet, Learn about Others’ Experiences

When adopting a new lifestyle, it always helps to learn from the experiences of others who have walked the same path.

It’s a good idea to talk to someone who has tried the raw food diet and stuck with it.

As questions about how they made the transition, what was the greatest challenge, how they feel now, and what advice they can give you.

Learning from others’ mistakes and successes can help you to have a better experience.

If you don’t know anyone personally who is enjoying the raw food lifestyle, you can still learn from other people.

The internet makes it easy to find message boards and forums for people living this lifestyle.

A quick online search will reveal many different websites where you can ask questions and discuss the raw food diet.

You can also find many blogs by people who are sharing their tips and experiences on the raw food journey.

Don’t be afraid to send emails and comment on blogs to ask questions and find out more.

The more information you have, the easier it will be to make the necessary changes to your lifestyle.

You can expect that making a big change in your diet can be challenging, so it’s always helpful to learn how other people overcame those challenges.

Tips for your Prosperity

What You Need to Know to Begin Affiliate Marketing

While affiliate marketing does offer a shorter sales process for you, there are still some things you need to know before you can just slap up some site, drive traffic and get decent conversions.

For one, you need to know how to pick products. You’ll need to do some homework.

That involves deciding on the niche you wish to pursue and then researching where to find the product or service that you want to promote within the niche.

Some do it in reverse and will look for a hot selling product and then find ways to get a piece of the niche profits.

A good affiliate marketer knows his or her market - and part of the way they get to know them is through visiting the niche forums and paying attention to the questions that keep coming up.

At some point, you’ll want to do some keyword research, too.

Get inside your prospect’s mind so that you know what terms to focus your campaign on.

A good affiliate program may have these listed for you to help make your job easier, but you can find words and phrases other affiliates aren’t using and rank very high for those in search engines like Google.

Then, once you’ve chosen your product, you need to be signed up in the affiliate program.

This is fairly simple for some companies like ClickBank or Amazon, but others have a more involved sign up process.

Next, you’ll want to grab your unique affiliate hyperlink for the product, which ensures that you get paid on any sales made through your referrals.

Now the fun part - getting targeted traffic to the affiliate sales page!

This involves writing articles to publish on ezine directories or Squidoo or having pay per click ads pointing people directly to the main sales site.

For products or services that lend themselves well to ongoing sales, like weight loss, dating, make money online, etc., you’ll certainly want to set up an email capture page (squeeze page) which will involve you getting an autoresponder service like Aweber set up.

Have a Laff!

Little Johnny used to hang out at the local corner market. The owner didn't know what Little Johnny's problem was, but the boys would constantly tease him.

They would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove it, sometimes they would offer Little Johnny his choice between a nickel (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents) and Little Johnny would always take the nickel -- they said, because it was bigger.

One day after Little Johnny grabbed the nickel, the store owner took him aside and said, "Little Johnny, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel just because it's bigger"

Slowly, Little Johnny turned toward the store owner and a big grin appeared on his face and he said, "Well, if I took the dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I've saved $20...!"
