Do you Trust that ‘Little Voice’ In your Head?




Don’t we sometimes have that ‘little voice’ in our head that tells us otherwise?

Well, sometimes that ‘little voice’ is good such as hinting to you that a particualr person whom youhave met just gives you the creeps and turns out that he was involved in the latest scam.

Other times, that ‘little voice’ in our head can get in our way.

Do you have that sometimes procrastinate on a project and that ‘little voice’ in your head tells you that ” I can start tomorrow. It’s still early. I have plenty of time.”
Before long, you realize that the project is due in another 48 hours.

I am also guilty of this sometimes. Everytime I want to start working out and keeping fit, the ‘fat voice’ tells me ” Oh, it’s raining outside. You can do it tomorrow, tomorrow and tomorrow. Until 20 pounds later, I realized it’s now or never and decided to pay a persona; trainer to keep me disciplined.

How many times have you wanted to create your own product but your ‘little voice’ seems to get in the way asking

“Who am I to create this product?”

” I do not have any particular expertise to share with others.”

“How do I start to create a product when I do not not know where to start?” etc. etc. etc…

Well, one thing that can silenced that ‘little voice’ in your head is by taking action.

#1: Being taking action by doing a small part everyday at the same time.

#2: Create a product launch pad.I create an outline of the product that I want to create first before I start on my research. That eway, it gives me a guide as to how to create that product and serves as a launch pad for my project.

#3: Create a checklist. You can track your progress easily and seek help when you need it.

Hope these few tips can help you to get started with your own projects till completion.

Do you see a young lady or old lady?


What do you see?

Do you see a young lady or old lady or both?


Do you see a young lady or an old lady?

Some of you may see an old lady, whilst others may see a young lady.

There are also others who claim that if you are young,

chances are you can see the young lady quicker as compared to when you are more matured.

Well, this picture reminds me not to see things from one perspective only.

Why do I say that?

Recently, I received complains about a situation that I was caught in at work.One of the customers complained that one of the classes was too noisy for her child and she finds it not productive.

I too was annoyed at the teacher who was conducting that class and my first instinct was to go and point it out to him and ask him to control the class better the next day.

However, upon hearing his explanation, I realized I only had one side of the story.

The fact is that the students had been studying diligently for the past two-and-a-half hours. They just had a break and was rather rowdy or ‘noisy’ as one parent put it. This was the only scene that parent witness and to her,it was her reality and made her form a false impression that the kids were noisy.

So if you can only see one side of the picture, do not jump to conclusions.

The same way you apply your skills to Internet Marketing or as you try to earn a living online.

Very often,we see the Gurus succeeding and see photos of them having vacations or sipping tropical fruit juice.
However, what we have not seen is the other side of the coin, the amount of effort they have put in initially to build up the business, the amount of investment they spent on building traffic or doing joint ventures with the rest to get to where they are now.

We only see the fruits of their success but not the effort they have put in. So if you are on the verge of ‘throwing in the towel’ because you have not made one “red-cent” online try to persist as success may be one step away.

If you have been following what the gurus tell you to do and have not had much success, here’s what I suggest you do

  • 1) Go through the steps or learning again. You may have missed some important steps in your business building.
  • 2) Identify gaps in your understanding. That is, areas you have not been able to put in place even after the course.
  • 3) Once you have identified the ‘missing link’ in step 2, seek help and look for solutions to that issue. For instance, if you realized you need to write more ‘keyword’ rich articles to drive more traffic and click-thrus, then set a schedule and write more consistently so you can can have consistent stream of traffic. This will boost you passive income stream continuously.
  • 4) Set a goals and review your progress every week. Do more of the steps that get your results and try to outsource the tasks that are necessary but do not make you money.
  • 5) Invest your initial earnings into your online business so that you can grow faster and further.

I too, have been guilty of sometimes jumping to conclusions too fast and giving up too soon without really giving myself a chance to succeed.

Don’t be like me, give yourself the space and chance to succeed.

What are some of the incidents which you gave up too soon too fast, only to realize that if you have persisted one step more, you would have succeeded? Share your thoughts with the rest of the readers here.


P.S: If you still can’t figure out the two, just remember that the young lady’s ear is the old lady’s eye.

Who has got your vote?

Vote For ME

Vote Me

With so many countries starting with Egypt to the United States having their elections this year, we see many potential candidates stating their track records or pulling out the track records of other candidates and held them  accountable to the past promises they have promised the people.

Well, it is all interesting to watch all these political debates on TV and I certainly enjoyed them myself.

But at the end of the day,have you ever considered coming up with your own list of promises to yourself and holding yourself accountable for them?
