The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about. Your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. But the Law of Attraction gives rise to some tough questions that don’t seem to have good answers. I would say, however, that these problems aren’t caused by the Law of Attraction itself but rather by the Law of Attraction as applied to objective reality.

Here are some of those problematic questions (all are generalizations of ones I received via email):

* What happens when people put out conflicting intentions, like two people intending to get the same promotion when only one position is available?
* Do children, babies, and/or animals put out intentions?
* If a child is abused, does that mean the child intended it in some way?
* If I intend for my relationship to improve, but my spouse doesn’t seem to care, what will happen?

These questions seem to weaken the plausibility of the Law of Attraction. Sometimes people answer them by going pretty far out. For example, it’s been said by LoAers that a young child experiences abuse because s/he intended it or earned it during a past life. Well, sure… we can explain just about anything if we bring past lives into the equation, but IMO that’s a cop-out. On the other hand, objective reality without the Law of Attraction doesn’t provide satisfactory answers either — supposedly some kids are just born unlucky. That’s a cop-out too.

I’ve never been satisfied by others’ answers to these questions, and they’re pretty important questions if the Law of Attraction is to be believed. Some books hint at the solution but never really nail it. That nail, however, can be found in the concept of subjective reality.

Subjective reality is a belief system in which (1) there is only one consciousness, (2) you are that singular consciousness, and (3) everything and everyone in your reality is a projection of your thoughts.

You may not see it yet, but subjective reality neatly answers all these tricky Law of Attraction questions. Let me ’splain….

In subjective reality there’s only one consciousness, and it’s yours. Consequently, there’s only one source of intentions in your universe — YOU. While you may observe lots of walking, talking bodies in your reality, they all exist inside your consciousness. You know this is how your dreams work, but you haven’t yet realized your waking reality is just another type of dream. It only seems solid because you believe (intend) it is.

Since none of the other characters you encounter are conscious in a way that’s separate from you, nobody else can have intentions. The only intentions are yours. You’re the only thinker in this universe.

It’s important to correctly define the YOU in subjective reality. YOU are not your physical body. This is not the egoic you at all. I’m not suggesting you’re a conscious body walking around in a world full of unconscious automatons. That would be a total misunderstanding of subjective reality. The correct viewpoint is that you’re the single consciousness in which this entire reality takes place.

Imagine you’re having a dream. In that dream what exactly are YOU? Are YOU the physical dream character you identify with? No, of course not — that’s just your dream avatar. YOU are the dreamer. The entire dream occurs within your consciousness. All dream characters are projections of your dream thoughts, including your avatar. In fact, if you learn lucid dreaming, you can even switch avatars in your dream by possessing another character. In a lucid dream, you can do anything you believe you can.

Physical reality works the same way. This is a denser universe than what you experience in your sleeping dreams, so changes occur a bit more gradually here. But this reality still conforms to your thoughts just like a sleeping dream. YOU are the dreamer in which all of this is taking place.

The idea that other people have intentions is an illusion because other people are just projections. Of course, if you strongly believe other people have intentions, then that’s the dream you’ll create for yourself. But ultimately it’s still an illusion.

Here’s how subjective reality answers these challenging Law of Attraction questions:

What happens when people put out conflicting intentions, like two people intending to get the same promotion when only one position is available?

Since you’re the only intender, this is entirely an internal conflict — within YOU. You’re holding the thought (the intention) for both people to want the same position. But you’re also thinking (intending) that only one can get it. So you’re intending competition. This whole situation is your creation. You believe in competition, so that’s what you manifest. Maybe you have some beliefs (thoughts and intentions) about who will get the promotion, in which case your expectations will manifest. But you may have a higher order belief that life is random, unfair, uncertain, etc., so in that case you may manifest a surprise because that’s what you’re intending.

Being the only intender in your reality places a huge responsibility on your shoulders. You can give up control of your reality by thinking (intending) randomness and uncertainty, but you can never give up responsibility. You’re the sole creator in this universe. If you think about war, poverty, disease, etc., that’s exactly what you’ll manifest. If you think about peace, love, and joy, you’ll manifest that too. Your reality is exactly what you think it is. Whenever you think about anything, you summon its manifestation.

Do children, babies, and/or animals put out intentions?

No. Your own body doesn’t even put out intentions — only your consciousness does. You’re the only one who has intentions, so what takes precedence is what YOU intend for the children, babies, and animals in your reality. Every thought is an intention, so however you think about the other beings in your reality is what you’ll eventually manifest for them. Keep in mind that beliefs are hierarchical, so if you have a high order belief that reality is random and unpredictable and out of your control, then that intention will trump other intentions of which you’re less certain. It’s your entire collection of thoughts that dictates how your reality manifests.

If a child is abused, does that mean the child intended it in some way?

No. It means YOU intended it. You intend child abuse to manifest simply by thinking about it. The more you think about child abuse (or any other subject), the more you’ll see it expand in your reality. Whatever you think about expands, and not just in the narrow space of your avatar but in all of physical reality.

If I intend for my relationship to improve, but my spouse doesn’t seem to care, what will happen?

This is another example of intending conflict. You’re projecting one intention for your avatar and one for your spouse, so the actual unified intention is that of conflict. Hence the result you experience, subject to the influence of your higher order beliefs, will be to experience conflict with your spouse. If your thoughts are conflicted, your reality is conflicted.

This is why assuming responsibility for your thoughts is so important. If you want to see peace in the world, then intend peace for EVERYTHING in your reality. If you want to see abundance in the world, then intend it for EVERYONE. If you want to enjoy loving relationships, then intend loving relationships for ALL. If you intend these only for your own avatar but not for others, then you’re intending conflict, division, and separation; consequently, that’s what you’ll experience.

If you stop thinking about something entirely, does that mean it disappears? Yes, technically it does. But in practice it’s next to impossible to uncreate what you’ve already manifested. You’ll continue creating the same problems just by noticing them. But when you assume 100% responsibility for everything you’re experiencing in your reality right now — absolutely everything — then you assume the power to alter your reality by rechanneling your thoughts.

This entire reality is your creation. Feel good about that. Feel grateful for the richness of your world. And then begin creating the reality you truly want by making decisions and holding intentions. Think about what you desire, and withdraw your thoughts from what you don’t want. The most natural, easiest way to do this is to pay attention to your emotions. Thinking about your desires feels good, and thinking about what you don’t want makes you feel bad. When you notice yourself feeling bad, you’ve caught yourself thinking about something you don’t want. Turn your focus back towards what you do want, and your emotional state will improve rapidly. As you do this repeatedly, you’ll begin to see your physical reality shift too, first in subtle ways and then in bigger leaps.

I too am just a manifestation of your consciousness. I play the role you expect me to play. If you expect me to be a helpful guide, I will be. If you expect me to be profound and insightful, I will be. If you expect me to be confused or deluded, I will be. But of course there’s no distinct ME that is separate from YOU. I’m just one of your many creations. I am what you intend me to be. But deep down you already knew that, didn’t you?

Blog Secrets For Writers - Boost Your Income

Firstly, let's talk about what a blog actually is. A blog is an instant-publication tool. That's all. If you're caught up in thinking that a blog is "an online journal", it can stifle your creativity.

So when you think blog, think "instant publication."

Now let's look at secret ways in which your blog can boost your writing income.

1. More Blogs Equal More Money

I have many blogs, and each blog has a purpose. Blogs take time to develop a readership. Usually when I create a blog, it's for a project which is either currently in development, or which I intend to develop a year or two from now.

Think of each blog you create as an investment. Your investment in a blog may not pay off for several years, just as real-world investments.

2. Sell Yourself and Your Products on Your Blogs

If you're a new writer, a blog will help you because you'll become visible online. It helps you to build your name.

Make a list of all the writing services you provide, and make sure that you advertise these on your blog. As your writing services business grows, create a blog for each service.

If you're writing articles, for example, create an articles blog. If you're writing a book, create a blog for the book. And so on.

Ensure that you use your own name on each of your blogs. This means that when a potential buyer of your writing types your name into a Web search engine, all your blogs will show up. You develop credibility as a writer.

This leads to our final secret.

3. Every Blog Post Is an Advertisement for You

Every blog, and every post on that blog, is an advertisement for you as a writer. Writers are in high demand on the Web, however you need to build credibility as a Web writer, and trust.

Every blog you create displays your writing skill. This cuts down on your need to hunt for writing jobs, because clients come to you. Eventually, if you focus on blogging, you'll have more clients than you can handle.

Blogging is a way to become an established writer, fast. If you're not blogging, your writing career will never be as successful as it could be. Start a blog (or another one) today.

10 (More) Reasons You're Not Rich

The list of reasons you may not be rich doesn't end at 10. Caring what your neighbors think, not being patient, having bad habits, not having goals, not being prepared, trying to make a quick buck, relying on others to handle your money, investing in things you don't understand, being financially afraid and ignoring your finances.

Here are 10 more possible reasons you aren't rich:

You care what your car looks like: A car is a means of transportation to get from one place to another, but many people don't view it that way. Instead, they consider it a reflection of themselves and spend money every two years or so to impress others instead of driving the car for its entire useful life and investing the money saved.

You feel entitlement: If you believe you deserve to live a certain lifestyle, have certain things and spend a certain amount before you have earned to live that way, you will have to borrow money. That large chunk of debt will keep you from building wealth.

You lack diversification: There is a reason one of the oldest pieces of financial advice is to not keep all your eggs in a single basket. Having a diversified investment portfolio makes it much less likely that wealth will suddenly disappear.

You started too late: The magic of compound interest works best over long periods of time. If you find you're always saying there will be time to save and invest in a couple more years, you'll wake up one day to find retirement is just around the corner and there is still nothing in your retirement account.

You don't do what you enjoy: While your job doesn't necessarily need to be your dream job, you need to enjoy it. If you choose a job you don't like just for the money, you'll likely spend all that extra cash trying to relieve the stress of doing work you hate.

You don't like to learn: You may have assumed that once you graduated from college, there was no need to study or learn. That attitude might be enough to get you your first job or keep you employed, but it will never make you rich. A willingness to learn to improve your career and finances are essential if you want to eventually become wealthy.

You buy things you don't use: Take a look around your house, in the closets, basement, attic and garage and see if there are a lot of things you haven't used in the past year. If there are, chances are that all those things you purchased were wasted money that could have been used to increase your net worth.

You don't understand value: You buy things for any number of reasons besides the value that the purchase brings to you. This is not limited to those who feel the need to buy the most expensive items, but can also apply to those who always purchase the cheapest goods. Rarely are either the best value, and it's only when you learn to purchase good value that you have money left over to invest for your future.

Your house is too big: When you buy a house that is bigger than you can afford or need, you end up spending extra money on longer debt payments, increased taxes, higher upkeep and more things to fill it. Some people will try to argue that the increased value of the house makes it a good investment, but the truth is that unless you are willing to downgrade your living standards, which most people are not, it will never be a liquid asset or money that you can ever use and enjoy.

You fail to take advantage of opportunities: There has probably been more than one occasion where you heard about someone who has made it big and thought to yourself, "I could have thought of that." There are plenty of opportunities if you have the will and determination to keep your eyes open.

Content Make Money


When you want to build a Web site there are many things you need to think about and plan. This series of articles will take you through the steps to creating a Web site. I will show you the decisions I needed to make and what steps I took to build a new Web site. Last week I examined some graphics tools you will need to create a full-featured Web site. This week I'll discuss how to come up with content for your site, and what types of content are already cliches on the Web.

Web Page Ideas
Once you have your tools together, you need to decide on what you want your page to be about. There are so many different Web sites, and no matter what you may think of, there is probably already at least one Web site on it. Of course, this doesn't help if you know you have a Web site in you, you just can't think of what it is yet.

Web pages can be on anything you would like to write about. Many people are selling things on the Web, as well as writing stories, telling about themselves, providing information, and much more. Your Web page or site should be about something that you feel passionate about. Get excited about your subject. When you're exited, your readers will be excited and they'll keep coming back.
Things to Avoid

There are some ideas or methods on Web pages that are Web cliches and you should try to avoid them.

* Pages without content
There are hundreds of sites on the Web that have almost nothing on them. No, I'm not talking about the splash screens that are so popular right now, I'm talking about Web pages where there are a lot of words or pictures but there is no reason for me to go there. If you are writing about something that you care about, chances are your page will have interesting content, but if you're just putting up a page because you can, well, that is usually boringly obvious.

* "Under Construction"
This is almost always a given when it comes to Web sites. If your site has no information when you put it up and promote it, most people won't come back, even if you state that the site is under construction. Create a site that has the information people want to see, and don't bore them with things they most likely already know.

* Lists of links
If you are listing your favorite links, say so, and explain why each link is on the list.

* Huge graphics
Previously we learned about graphic optimization tools for a reason. Huge graphics take forever to download.

Understanding the 80/20 Principle

Take a look at some facts below:

  • Back to 1985, in Indonesia, Chinese residents comprised less than 3% of the population, but owned 70% of the wealth. Similarly, in Malaysia, the Chinese own 95% of total wealth.
  • In any large retail store, approximately 20% of the sales staff will make more than 80% of the dollar value of sales.
  • Of investments made by a successful venture capitalist, 5% of them provide 55% of cash, 10% produce 73%, and 15% yield a total of 82%.
  • More than 80% of books sold come from 20% of authors, and fewer than 20% of media stars hog more than 80% of the limelight.
  • Fewer than 20% of inventions have more than 80% of impact on our lives. Nuclear power and computer had greater influence than hundreds of thousands of other inventions.
  • More than 80% of scientific breakthroughs come from fewer than 20% of scientists.
  • Crime statistics repeatedly show that about 20% of thieves make off with 80% of the loot.
  • Far fewer than 20% of wars produce more than 80% of casualties.
  • More than 80% of food comes from far less than 20% of land. Fruit typically accounts for much less than 20% of the mass or weight of a tree or vine.
  • Wherever you go, fewer than 20% of clouds will produce 80% of rain.
  • Fewer than 20% of species cause more than 80% of ecological degradation. It’s estimated that just one species, out of the 30 million on earth causes 40% of the harm. Guess what? us.

What is the 80/20 Principle?

Over 100 years ago, a shaggy-haired Italian economist got a real shock. Professor Vilfredo Pareto of Lausanne University was investigating wealth in Britain. He found a curiously lopsided picture: a few people had most of the money.

Then he looked at statistics on British wealth in earlier centuries. Every time, he got an almost identical picture. Pareto then compared wealth in America, in Italy, in France, in Switzerland, and elsewhere. For every country with statistics, he came with the same result. A law of money operated everywhere, any time.

Pareto explained his law badly, until 1950 did Joseph Juran rename it the 80/20 principle: 20% of people enjoyed 80% of money. In Pareto’s time, taxes were very low. In the last century, governments around the world taxed the rich to give to the poor.

Yet Pareto’s picture hasn’t budged. The wealthiest 20% of Americans own 84% of money. The planet’s top 20% corner 85% of money. These numbers are shocking. Money -and the 80/20 principle- are more powerful than governments.

We find that the top 20% of people, natural forces, economic inputs, or any other causes we can measure typically lead to about 80% of results, outputs, or effects.

The 80/20 principle works everywhere in life. It’s surprising and amazing.

How Come the 20% Own 80%?

Money, by it’s nature, is a force. Money dislikes being equally distributed. Money clones money. “The greatest force in the world?” as Albert Einstein said, “Compound interest.” Money obeys the 80/20 principle because of compound interest.

People with the most money have typically saved and invested it for many years. Compound interest multiplies savings in a breathtaking way. Try to start with a small amount of money, save and invest it, then compound interest will do the rest.

For example, in 1946 Anne Scheiber, who knew little about money, put $5,000 into the stock market. She locked away the share certificates and stopped worrying. By 1995 her modest nest egg had transmogrified into $22,000,000 -up 440,000%!

Now, let’s assume that you are 18 years old by now. You have an annual income $16,000 a year. If you could save $1,600 a year, which is only 10% of your earning, your nest egg would become $1.5 million when you were 65.

Because of compound interest, money becomes concentrated in few hands. There is therefore one, and only one, infallible 80/20 route to enough money -to save and invest in the easiest possible way.

If we never save money, we will always be poor, no matter how much money we earn.

Why do a Few People Have Most Money?

Modern life is a mistake. Instead of working to live, we live to work. We have never been so free, yet failed to realize the extent of our freedom. We have never had so much time, yet felt we had so little.

Modern life bullies us to speed up our lives. We use technology to do everything faster. But in racing against the clock, all we do is stress ourselves out. Going faster doesn’t give us more time. It makes us feel that we’re always behind. We battle against time, our imagined enemy. We perceive time as accelerating, draining out from our lives.

In the 19th century, John Stuart Mill gave one excellent reason for this being true:

We don’t want to be rich, we just want to be richer than other people. When our living standard improves but everyone else’s does too, we don’t feel better off. We forget that our cars and houses are better than before, because our friends all drive similar cars and have just as pleasant homes.

On April 8, 1991, Time magazine’s highlighted the price paid for successful careers. 61% of 500 professionals said that “earning a living today requires so much effort that it’s difficult to find time to enjoy life.” 38% said that they were cutting back on sleep to earn more money. 69% said they’d like to “slow down and live a more relaxed life”; only 19% wanted “a more exciting, faster paced life.” 56% wanted to find more time for personal interests and hobbies, and 89% said it was important to them to spend more time with their families, something that their careers made difficult.

More money can be a trap, leading to more spending, more commitments, more worry, more complexity, more time on administering money, more desires, more time at work, less choice about how we spend our time, and degradation of our independence and life energy. Our lifestyle locks us into our “workstyle”.

In earning money, we sell our time, which is really our “life energy.” The effort to make a living consumes our life. We underestimate how much life energy is being consumed by our work. We overestimate what we are getting in return.

When you break the link between work and money, you give yourself the opportunity to discover what your true work is -it may turn out to be totally unrelated to what you are currently doing for money.

This is why a few people have most money and most people have very little.

How to Apply 80/20 Principle into Our Lives?

It’s all about mental mindset. In reality, the best way to achieve more is to do less. Less is more when we concentrate on the few things that are truly important, not the least of which is happiness for ourselves and our loved ones.

Writing down your ideal destination works wonders. Of Yale’s 1953 graduating class, only 3% set written financial goals -similar to our 80/20 destination. Twenty years later, researchers discovered that these 3% had more money than all the other 97%.

Use time and money intelligently. Make less go further. The quality and value of time soar once we control them. Instead of money ruling our lives, making work stressful or miserable, we can use money to regain control of life. We can deploy energy where we’re most carefree, creative, and content.

It’s time for time revolution. We have too much time, not too little. Stop worrying. Do fewer things. Chuck your to do list, make a not to do list. Act less, think more. Reflect on what really matters to you. Stop doing anything that isn’t valuable, that doesn’t make you happy. The modern world has accelerated out of control. Technology was meant to add to our free time, but it’s done the opposite. Be unconventional, even eccentric. Purge your diary. Dump your cell phone. Stop going to meetings or events that bore you. Reclaim time for yourself and the people you care about. I admire Warren Buffett for his wildly unconventional way with time. He runs America’s biggest conglomerate empire. But does he rush around? Absolutely not. Once there, he “expects to lie on his back and paint the Sistine chapel ceiling.” He makes very few decisions, only the extremely important ones. By being relaxed and thoughtful, he usually gets them right.

Maximize your happiness times. If 80% of your time leads to only 20% of your happiness, can you cut those activities, freeing up time for things that make you happy? Luckily, there are always many activities that give us a poor return on happiness for the time spent. For example, if watching television makes you happy, do more of it; but otherwise, stop. Spend more time on the things you enjoy. Try out your new projects while you are still working at your normal job. Experiment with different ideas until one clicks.

Focus on your best 20%. Focus is the secret of all personal power, happiness, and success. Focus makes less more. Few people focus, yet focus is easy. Focus expands individuality, the essence of being human. Who are you? Who do you want to become? Life’s greatest mystery is human character and uniqueness. We craft individuality. Individuality implies differentiation. Becoming different requires editing, subtraction, focus. By focusing on our best, unique attributes, we become more individual, more human. We focus our power, our singularity, and our ability to enjoy life profoundly and uniquely.

Focus on your 80/20 destination. A destination is where you want to arrive and where you want to be. “Destination” means your goals, dreams, objectives throughout life -what you want to achieve. The kind of place you want to be -the people you want to be with, the kind of person you want to become, the experiences you want to have, the quality of your life. Where you most care about arriving -the life that suits and expresses you.

Find the 80/20 route. What’s the best and easiest route to your 80/20 destination? There are always many possible routes to any destination. There is always a route that provides an elegant and relatively easy solution, a way to get much more of what we want for much less energy, time, money, and bother. All we have to do is to find it. By taking a little extra time to think, you’ve found a much easier route that is also faster. Be clear, however, about your objectives before deciding the route.

Draw your more-with-less chart. Take a look at the chart below. Imagine that I am wanting a date with Dian Sastro. What am I supposed to do? I could draw attention to myself, maybe becoming the best actor, selling platinum album, or winning the president election. But Dian may not notice. This is a high-effort, low-reward approach (1st quadrant). I could spend ages trying to win over her parents or her grand mother, hoping that they’ll arrange me a date. This may work, but only with extraordinary effort (2nd quadrant). I also can dream on how nice the date would be, but do nothing. Easy but useless (3rd quadrant). Otherwise, I could simply wear a nice suit, go up of her, put on my best genuine smile, commit her a random act of kindness, and ask for a date. It is easy and just as likely to work.

More-with less chart

Apply more-with-less to our individual lives. Using chart above, find super-returns on your energy. In every industry, every profession, every organization, some people are getting ahead much faster than others, without working harder. It is always possible to improve anything in our lives by a large amount. The way to make the improvement is to ask, “What will give me a much better result for much less energy?” It’s not enough to seek improvement by means of greater effort or the same effort as today. A much better outcome must be sought alongside lower effort.

Take 80/20 action. 80/20 action is dictated by your unique 80/20 destination and 80/20 route. 80/20 action focuses on the very few actions that are proven to give you the great majority of your happiness and fulfillment: less is more. 80/20 action involves less total action and greater total results -more with less. It’s time where we apply less is more and more with less to five key areas of life:

  • your self
  • work and success
  • money
  • relationships
  • the simple, good life

Be “lazy” and relaxed. There are “lazy” people, like Ronald Reagan, who achieved a great deal just by being focused on one or two objectives. And there are super-hard workers, like Jimmy Carter, who had too many objectives and failed frenetically. A hard-working person is often too busy to spot what’s really significant. A “lazy” person wants to do as little as possible and so concentrates only on the essentials. What’s really productive is a “lazy” person who thinks new thoughts and is focused on making them happen. Thinking is often disturbing, sometimes even frightening. For most of us, the only way to create something new and valuable is to slow down, do fewer things, chill out. If you really love what you’re doing, you don’t need to be lazy. If you’re doing lots of things you don’t enjoy, cut them, keeping just the valuable and enjoyable things.

Friendship Pleasure. Work out how much time you spend with your key friends and with other friends. You may be surprised. You’re more likely to spend time with neighbors whom you like moderately than with your best friends. Try to live near your best friends. In any case, see them frequently.

Find someone to love. Finding the right partner is a ticket to happiness. Love at first sight usually doesn’t work. Committing to a life partner based largely on performance in bed is a poor bet. True love can move mountains but romantic love may not last. To be happy over the long haul, consider being able to get close to other people, depend on them, and have them depend on you. If you are not secure yourself, you must select a secure partner. Choose an optimistic partner, or one willing to learn optimism. Select someone who has the same basic values on fundamental issues, such as honesty, money, or kindness. Focusing on the few things that matter makes all the difference between success and failure in relationships.

Maintain a happy family. Close bonding between parent and child creates security and happiness throughout life. Children don’t understand the concept of “quality time,” they want attention all the time. The 80/20 Principle is to give more care and love to fewer people, the people we care most about. All time spent with one of your children is time well spent, with an enormous payoff for the child, for the rest of the family, and for society. Parents need to show that they love one another, even when they are annoyed. The payoff is that forcing love to win over grumpiness will make you happier too. Happy families can cope with disaster or difficult children.

Last but not least, stop comparing ourselves to others. Be content with being happy. Be happy with what we have. Stop striving after things that make us restless and unhappy. Why bother? Less is more -dump the stressful and unrewarding parts of our lives.

Why Does This Seem So Difficult?

Our desires are infinite and contradictory. We are restless, ambitious, and conditioned to think that more is better. We compare ourselves to other people. As some friends become richer, we don’t want to fall behind. If the neighbors have a new car, I want one too, even though I’m perfectly happy with the old one. Even if I’m lucky enough to own a yacht, I’ll notice that the owner of the next berth has just bought a bigger one with more powerful radar.

Many of us believe that ambition, effort, and striving are good, that we must develop our abilities and reach for the stars. We feel guilty if we are not competing, struggling to go further.

To expect more with less may seem unreasonable, but this is precisely the reason that amazing improvement is possible. The trap in making more effort to improve things is that we continue making the same kind of effort. We may improve things, but it will be a minor improvement and sooner or later we’ll exhaust ourselves in the process. Instead, it should be plain that in making the startling demand for more with less, we are going to have to dream up a great breakthrough. By deliberately cutting back on what we put into the task and yet asking for much more, we force ourselves to think hard and do something different. This is the root of all progress.


The 80/20 Principle makes everything as easy as possible, but not easier. It is harder to start. Ultimately, to make a life requires some new and different effort. Nevertheless, effort is effortless when driven by desire and love. Too often we’re driven by the dead hand of guilt, worry, or duty. Duty wastes life energy.

Our lives are most enjoyable and valuable when we are driven by the few things that excite us. If we are not excited, nothing is of any use. If we are not ourselves, little will come of our lives. If we are excited and ourselves, however, there is no limit to our happiness or achievement.

Yes, it takes a little effort to get on the 80/20 Principle. It requires a different attitude. You must stand out from the crowd. You must cast off the sticky chains of modern convention. It takes action. But you can do it. Decide now that you will. To multiply happiness, start those few actions right away. Once you get the hang of it, it will seem the easiest way of all.


Would You Like to be Rich?

Here is the single most important thing you will ever hear about investing: Getting rich is simple. Not easy, but simple. And here is the second most important thing you will ever hear about investing: You have no excuse not to do it.

Only three ingredients are needed: income, discipline and time. Chances are, you already have two of them, income and time. All you need to do is add the third, discipline. And armed with the following knowledge, that key third ingredient may be a lot easier to find. Here’s how it works:

Say you start with nothing, invest $500 of your income a month (a healthy discipline), and let your money ride over time in diversified investments. Long term, the stock market returns at least 10% annually. Assuming a 10% return, you’d have $102,000 after 10 years, $380,000 after 20 years, and $1.1 million in 30 years.

Here’s a similar scenario: If you start with a nut of $50,000 and add only $250 per month, you’d have $180,000, $516.000 and $1.4 million after 10, 20, and 30 years, respectively. All this happens through the power of regular investing and a simple-but-powerful concept called compounding. Yes, saving a bit over a long time is a sure way to growing your nest egg. Why? Because of the power of compounding. The piece goes on to explain this:

Compounding is the reinvestment of the interest you receive from the money you set aside. For example, if you invest $1,000 and earn 10% interest on your principal at the end of each year, you’ll get in $100 interest at the end of the first year. If you reinvest that interest, the second year you would start with $1,100, and thus would earn $110 interest. If you stay with it, you’d more than double your money every eight years.

“Compounding,” Albert Einstein said, “is mankind’s greatest invention because it allows for the reliable, systematic accumulation of wealth.” Einstein was a smart man. But you hardly have to be a genius to make this concept work for you. But you need more than compounding to help make the most of your money. The real magic of investing comes when you combine the surprising power of compounding with continuous and regular investments –in other words, discipline.

The best way to make these continuous investments happen is by setting up an account with a broker or mutual fund that automatically deducts a fixed amount from your bank account every month. “Automatic” is the operative word here. Trust me, if you don’t set it up that way, it won’t happen. Instead, you’ll end up pouring money in when the market is soaring and skipping payments when it’s heading down. Eventually you’ll get discouraged and give up.

The process of continuously investing a fixed dollar (rupiah) amount is called dollar-cost averaging –a term that sounds much more technical than it is. Through dollar-cost averaging, you’ll end up buying more shares when a stock or fund is down, and fewer when it’s up. For instance, say you’re investing $500 monthly in a stock trading initially at $50 per share; so the first time, you buy 10 shares. If the next month the stock moves up to $62.50 your regular purchase will net you only eight shares. However, if the stock drops to $41.67, you’ll get 12 shares (not including any transaction fees).

It’s easy to set up regular-investment mechanisms, thus harnessing the power of dollar-cost averaging. Mutual funds are the traditional way. But there are other outlets, as well, that allow you to apply the strategy with individual stocks or exchange-traded funds, which are baskets of stocks that identically track standard market indexes, such as the Indeks Harga Saham Gabungan (IHSG) or Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).

Of course, if you prefer to get rich in another way, there are options. You could win the lottery/jackpot, or pick the next McDonald Stores. But don’t quit your day job just yet. Your chances of winning big in the lottery run around 15 million to 1, at best.

Here’s the bottom line, like it or not: The fate of your retirement, your comfort in older age, probably lies in your commitment to the concepts laid out in the paragraphs above. For the vast majority of us, wealth creation is a slow, steady, and powerful process. The tortoise almost always beats the hare.

How Much Money Are Professional Bloggers Really Making?

More and more people are trying to earn money blogging these days. That's certainly understandable -- it's a lot of fun, very flexible and inexpensive to get started.

Back in April, I took a look at how much money you can make blogging. Now, some of the top "make money online" bloggers have shared their stats, and Income Diary has ranked the top bloggers by monthly income.

It's great to have this reference so you can kind of see just what it takes and how much potential there is. There are a couple of caveats though:

  1. This is by no means a complete list -- it's just those that have chosen to participate and share their earnings. Some top earners like Darren Rowse of Problogger (and others), Maki from Dosh Dosh, Shai Coggins, the Performancing crew, Carl Ocab, et al., are notably absent. There are definitely more people making a full-time living at it than this list would indicate. For a more comprehensive list, ranked based on a combination of other statistics (not income), see the 45n5 Top 100.
  2. It's only "make money online" type bloggers. There are plenty of other bloggers who blog about other topics and quietly make money at it. If you look at Technorati's Top 100 Blogs, you have to get to #18 (Dosh Dosh) before you get to any "make money online" bloggers, and all the way down to #43 (ShoeMoney) before you get to one on the Income Diary list.
  3. In case you're wondering about the people reporting only a few hundred dollars a month income and wondering how they're living on that, remember that this is only their blogging income we're looking at here -- not other business activities like consulting or a day job.

If you'd like more details about how top earner John Chow makes all that money, he provides more details in his monthly Blog Income Reports.

10 Simple Steps To Directly Monetizing Blogs

10 Simple Steps To Directly Monetizing Blogs

More and more people are getting into blogging because they want to make
money. To feed this desire more and more bloggers are writing about
making money from blogs. I get asked how to go about monetizing blogs,
and also why I don’t write more about the subject. This post will answer both
First let’s be clear; blogging is not a magic route to instant riches. While
there is certainly no harm in wanting to earn an income from blogging, make
sure your expectations are realistic. A few hundred dollars a month from a
moderately popular blog is a reasonable goal. Enough to pay for your time,
hosting and perhaps some toys, or for the grown-ups (physical or mental)
help towards your rent/mortgage/loan repayments.
Rule number one - stick to producing valuable content, despite what the
snake-oil get-rich-quick meisters will tell you. Go for long term and stable
income not dump and dash spamola.
These steps are simple but not necessarily easy.
1. Choose a niche with potential and where you can make a splash
2. Find appropriate affiliate offers that match your topic
3. Use keyword tools to investigate high-paying AdSense phrases and
write about them
4. Build or select an AdSense-friendly template, use Text Link Ads when
you get to a decent price, and test schemes such as Chitika,
AuctionAds, etc.
5. Grow your RSS and email subscriptions, use full feed and FeedBurner
RSS advertising
6. Post regular, useful content, at least one article a day
7. Generate traffic, using compelling headlines, networking,
commenting, carnivals, memes, viral, social networking, SEO and
Flagship Content
8. Do more of what works - use your stats to see which keywords and
articles bring in visitors
9. Pay for advertising out of your AdSense and affiliate income
10. Build another blog in a related niche, cross-promote, diversify, start
over at step 1.
As you can see there are no silver bullets, not instant gratification answers.
Each one of those bullets hides a million other pieces of the puzzle.
Why don’t I write about this stuff more?
Most people when they talk about blog monetization mean they want to
make a direct income through AdSense and affiliates. My income is indirect,
that is my blogging builds an audience which leads to profile, credibility and
leads. While the two revenue subjects overlap there are significant
differences in approach.
Regardless of which approach you follow, earning money from blogs is hard
work and time consuming. Don’t listen to the latest “can’t lose” get-rich
schemes. Stick with it and create a valuable resource and the rewards do
come. Copyright © by Chris Garrett. All rights reserved in all media.

Thinking Creatively & Taking Chances

Thinking Creatively & Taking Chances

Is A Marketing Strategy That Works?

Back in 1994 I had a job interview with an advertising agency in Akron,
Ohio. During the interview I noticed the President’s office wall covered in
yellow post-it notes. And I mean a ton of them, all over the place, like
wallpaper. “That’s how I get work done and remember stuff,” he said. I
thought it was pretty cool, and it gave me an idea.
After I left the interview, I went to the store and bought some packs of post-
it notes, and a big paper sheet about 3×3 feet in size. I had my wife,
girlfriend at the time, who has unbelievable handwriting write down a
quality I possessed on each yellow sticky (hard worker, good designer,
smart, etc..). We filled up the entire paper sheet with those stickies, creating
a “wall” of my best attributes.
It was my resume in sticky notes.
The next morning I dropped it off at his office before he got in. A few hours
later I got the call and was hired instantly.
Now, I didn’t take the job as I had another offer to join something called a
“new media agency”, which I took instead, but that’s another story.
The point is… Thinking creatively and taking chances is a winning
Do you think creatively? Do you take chances? I believe that many of you
have good or even great ideas, but you are afraid to act them out. Why?
Jon Spolestra, my newest marketing hero, author of an AMAZING book
called Marketing Outrageously, advises that you everyone should sit down
and get a little piece of paper and write down the craziest idea you have for
marketing your business on it. Then stick it in your pocket and just keep it
there. You don’t have to show it to anyone if you don’t want to, just keep it
there as a reminder to you that you can think in such a manner.
My advice? Stop worrying about failure. It’s going to happen, a lot. I’ve failed
countless times, and been laughed at too. I’ve been told my ideas are lame
and will never work, and some have, and some haven’t. But you know what?
I will never, ever stop trying.
P.S. Go ahead, buy that book. If you don’t think it’s amazing, send it to me
and I will pay you for it, guaranteed. I’ll just give it to someone else. No joke.

About Adsense Earning

The Google AdSense program is like finding money in the street.

Kids in High School are making thousands of dollars a month with Adsense... Housewives, Retiree's, Mom and Pop's who've never made a dime on the Internet have created full time incomes by simply placing AdSense Ads on their web site or blog.

Then you have the "Super AdSense" earners. We have all heard of them... the Elite few who are on track to make half a million dollars a year or more promoting AdSense sites.

Do not be mistaken though... these people are not building like your Mom and Pop's do. They have systems in place that create sites for them... people who build sites for them... they have outsourced and automated many of the tedious tasks such as posting to blogs and searching for keywords.

While most people cannot emulate everything these Super AdSense earners do... many of them you can.

Here are 7 Required Steps you can implement today to copy their success.

1) Starting today... treat your AdSense business like it is a REAL business and track what you do.

Begin tracking what you are doing that works... as well as what you are doing that does not work. This will keep you from making the same mistakes over and over, and you can repeat the steps that have worked in the past. As simple as this step seems... most people do not know the reason(s) to their success or failure.

2) Utilize the latest tools and software available.

The Super AdSense earners are not any smarter than your average person. I know many people think they are... but for the most part, they are regular non techie people.

They are smarter in one respect though... they use the latest tools available to them to automate most of the tasks involved with researching and creating sites. They use the latest keyword, site creation and search engine optimization tools available. The tools they use are their secret weapons.

3) Quit chasing the Mega Dollar keywords.

You cannot compete with the search engine experts who create sites for the $80 payout keywords. You may get lucky every now and then... but in the long run, you are better off building sites for the low to mid range payout keywords. The competition is less, and your chance of success is much higher over the long term.

4) Choose broad niches and break it down.

Choose a broad subject as your main theme (lets use computers for an example). From there... break it down into as many sub niches as possible.

Using Computers as the example... you could build sub niches/sites like laptop computers, computer hard drives, computer keyboards, etc, etc. You could literally build hundreds of sites around one major theme and stay totally focused. Once you have exhausted every possible sub niche of that major theme... choose another main theme and repeat the process.


Keep your sites easy to navigate and forget the fancy graphics that distract your visitors attention. Unless you are just building AdSense sites for the fun of it and to impress your friends... the purpose of having the site is to have people click on one of the ads, right? Then keep the site layout simple... dump the scrolling banners, dancing chickens and colored scroll bars... they are distractions.

6) What is the purpose of your web site?

Your web site cannot be everything to everybody. If you have a full fledged ecommerce site, with products for sale... links to other products, it is not a good site for AdSense. If the primary focus of the site is to sell products... let it do that.

Do not distract or confuse your visitor with to many options or choices. The best AdSense sites are AdSense only content sites that sell nothing. They are sites that "Tell"... not "Sell."

7) Be consistent.

This is not one of those deals where you build one site and you are done. Refer back to Step #4. You must continuously build in order to be successful.

Think of it as planting a crop that you will harvest in a month or two, and the sites you build are seeds. Once the seeds have grown and matured... you will reap the harvest. The more seeds you plant... the larger the harvest.

To sum it up... utilize the tools available to automate as much of the process of building sites - doing research and building keyword lists as you can. This alone will help keep you organized and on track. Be consistent in building... treat it like the business it is and you will reap the rewards of your harvest.

there is still much more than that.

* Do not know how to do research or a niche advertising for potential customers
* Quitting after one or a few failures (without passion or perserverence)
The bottom line is ... How can a person succeed and not fail? Answer. Learn
Internet Marketing the right way.
Here is food for thought ...
How can anyone achieve anything in life without a proven system successfully.
Many people take for granted the simple achievements in their daily lives
(Personal and business / work). Learning, monitor and implement the law and the system
success will come. Once success comes, then duplicate learn well.

a library universal.
Research and learn ... Research and learning should never stop. That's how people
become successful traders. If a child aged 14, could succeed,
making more than $ 2000 per month, no doubt other people of all ages can do as
Everybody, in most cases, not only failed once, twice or three times but some
they do not many times.

The List Building Stealth Tactic

The List Building Stealth Tactic
By Sean Houser Platinum Quality Author

List building is a difficult task for newer online marketers, but it doesn't have to be... You can actually make it a very easy daily task if you just use a few good base elements.

First you need to make an effort to write content each and every day... You can do whatever you want with the content; submit it to article directories, turn it into a blog post, create a squidoo lense, etc...

Content is one of the most important things to remember because it usually leads to 100% free traffic to your website.

Alright, the next thing you should make a daily chore of is creating auto-responder content... Too many marketers focus on building a list, but then have no good content in their auto-responder to back themselves up as an expert in their field.

Your autoresponder should be a mixture of good content and promotional material... Don't have so much good content to the point where you aren't sending out any promotions, and don't bombard your list with too many promotions either or they'll all unsubscribe.

OK, the next thing you should always think about is networking. The more potential partners you have to do ad swaps with, the faster your list will grow. You can form partnerships just by being friendly with other people in your niche market... Help them, and they'll return the favor sometime in the future, usually by letting you advertise to their list.

Alright, if you make a consistent effort to use these strategies you will definitely see an increase in your list size.

Control Your Domain Name & Protect Your Online Identity

Control Your Domain Name & Protect Your Online Identity
By Lynne Foster

Registering a domain name is something that a lot of people leave up to their web designer or hosting company. We have recently come across a practice that, although slightly unscrupulous, is something that cannot be easily policed as not everyone is aware of the problem. So what is this practice we are referring to?

It is the registering domain names on your behalf but not under you or your company's name.*

So what does this mean to you?

Well, firstly, think of it this way. You set up your company, work hard to make it work and decide to get a website. The domain is bought on your behalf, website built and then maybe you spend years building your online presence. So what happens if after all this hard work you then decide to then transfer your hosting or site design etc to someone else? If the domain is not registered under your details your previous host could quite easily refuse to pass the domain to you. If this happens and you cannot resolve this through Nominets Dispute Resolution then there is not much you can do short of starting afresh with a new domain. As much of an annoyance this would be it is far preferable to being forceably tied to a company who have effectively held you to ransom for your company's online identity.

In an attempt to stop anyone else falling foul of this we have a few tips for anyone thinking of registering a domain name through a third party.

1) Ensure that your potential domain registering company does not make a habit of registering domains in their own name by looking up their company using domain name tools If they have hundreds of domain names registered to them alarm bells should ring. Bear in mind though that this is not 100% accurate for example a search for our company Polr brings back over 100 results whereas actually only have four at the moment (all our own!), make sure you are using the correct companys details in your search

2) Have it written into the contract that the domain MUST be registered under your details so you have some documentation should it come to dispute resolution. Do not fall into the trap of simply assuming that 'It goes without saying' that you would own the domain.

3) Research may take a little time but will be priceless if it stops you from getting into a dispute. Look at their current clients and look up their details in the whois database. If their clients' domain names are not registered to each individual client then it may be best to steer clear.

4) If in doubt, but you still want other services from the company such as hosting, register your domain yourself. You can do this easily from any number of sources. Any webdesign company can work with a pre-bought name and question the skills of any that suggest otherwise!

Domain registration is not something that should be taken lightly. Would you let someone register your company name under their address and details? Then why take the chance with your online address?

* What Nominet say: A small number of Registrars routinely register domain names in their own name without the knowledge or permission of their customer. This breaks the terms of the contract, because it can cause major problems for the intended Registrant.

Secrets For A Better Website

Seven Secrets For A Better Website

Have you ever wondered why it is that some web sites enjoy super success while many others fail miserably? Below are seven secrets to help you make YOUR site one of the winners!


Several studies indicate, that you have only 10 to 30 seconds to capture visitor's attention. If your site is slow to open, your customer will likely lose patience and close the window. And that means bye.. your site! sale.

Solution: Avoid having too much animation in your site. Compress the image files and host your site with a good hosting company.

2. Website Design

Remember you have only 10 to 30 seconds to capture visitor's attention. So website design is very important. Most people judge something on their first look! When visitors come to your site, they will see the reflection of YOU. Be certain they will like what they see.

Make your site comfortable to look at. Be consistent with the feel and design. Don't use bright colors that jolt the eye and senses. Use a text that is easy to read. Better yet, put a really great picture of yourself on your site. Let your visitors know who they are dealing with, and show them that there is a real human behind the website!

Did my picture capture your attention the first time you visited my website? I hope so. I hope you could see that I was a real, genuine, caring person that you would feel comfortable doing business with. :-)

3. Focus Your Site

Make sure to focus your website on the intended goal. This will help you to target your market easily. For example, if you are interested in a car selling business, most of the contents of your site will naturally be about cars. For instance, your topics could be; My Car Collection, Tips for Buying A Good Car, Millenium Cars, The Secrets of Washing a Car, etc..! :-)

Car Lovers will enjoy visiting your site, because you give them exciting information about a topic they are personally interested in.

When you have laser focus, and great contents, this will create happy customers coming back to your site again and again. This makes it possible for you to repeatedly offer them new sales items to purchase from your site!

Don't clutter your site with too many unrelated products. When you have more than one or two unrelated products, make a unique page for each instead of putting them all on the same page. And do it with some style and thought. Your customers will not appreciate feeling that they have been tricked with an unworthy product.

4. Keywords Density

Many site owners ignore or are ignorant about the importance of Keywords. I have found sites which don't have any keywords at all. This is death for a website! A Good keyword density will help your site listing in search engines!

Remember, 90% of web surfers find what they want by typing in the search engines. So design your site to maximize the placement. Focus on your keywords. Utilize the meta tags keywords, description and title.

If you have no idea what I am talking about or if you don't know how to use HTML code, please, find someone who does or purchase a few good books (I can suggest one or two). I know this may sound terribly confusing but it is one of the most crucial things needed to build a better more successful website.

5. Simple Navigation

Make your site navigation easy. If the customers find it hard navigating your site to find what they want, they will go elsewhere. So, limit the choices, and make the sales process uncomplicated.

6. Make Payment Easy

If you sell a product, offer your customer a variety of payment methods. If your site does not offer a credit card, you are hurting your business...get one right now. You can set up a merchant account such as ClickBank, or use one of the many credit card clearing companies. Take checks online. Provide an address for those who prefer to pay by cash, check, or money order. and provide them with a guarantee.

Make the payment process obvious, easy to access and intuitive to use.

7. Credibility Is Vital

Your professional website design will not sell, if the customers don't trust you! So, provide legitimate contact information online. Your email address, mailing address, phone number and a fax number, if applicable. If you are reluctant to give this information to your customers, why should they trust, or buy from you?

Having your own domain name is also very vital for your credibilty. It will make you look more professional. Choose a domain name that easy to remember and suitable for your business.

Putting testimonials from happy customers is one of the best way to improve your credibilty. When the customer can read what other people say about your service, they will be more inclined to trust you!

Applying the seven secrets above probably will not make your site become as famous as Amazon or Yahoo overnight! But..If they are applied correctly and included into an overall website design and marketing campaign, you will see great improvement to your site's traffic and sales!
