Quick video marketing tip: BEFORE you start shooting your video always check your lighting! Shoot a 5 second video with you in it to see if it looks good. Please don’t be a moron like me, because this is what will happen:
Seriously, where you are today is a results of your actions, thoughts and habits from your past leading up to now.
It works like nature itself.
When you plant pumpkin seeds, there’s no guessing about what you going to get… you’re gonna get some damn pumpkins, no doubt about it.
Our thoughts, habits and actions are no exception. They are exactly like a plants seeds: The seeds we plant by doing what we do are going to grow, and they will affect us and our lives in the future.
I have recently bought a couple of solo ads from people, to test a new source of advertising.
So I paid for it, provided the ad copy, and made sure everything was good to go with the sellers (which it was). Then I proceeded to schedule the date the email would be sent out (a solo ad is basically an email ad).
Nothing new here right?
But, here’s what actually happened.
On the day they were supposed to go out, no clicks came in, no leads nothing. The next day, still nothing… not a single clicketyclick.
Upon contact the both of the sellers, (let’s call them D & A for privacy reasons) I found out that they meant to send out the email, but they didn’t get around to doing it.
Now, my first reaction was frustration and a bit of anger. My thinking was that they should just do what they were supposed to do and do it
But that quickly changed…
Here’s what I’ve realized shortly after, a message from my Inner Voice: It wasn’t them that’s the problem (well part of it), but it was mostly me that’s the blame for the problem. You remember what I said about planting seeds, right?
Well, I’ve been a chronic procrastinator for pretty much all my life.
I’ve been planting seeds of procrastination everywhere I went for over 20 years now. I could tell you of all the times I’ve postponed thing (and I will… someday), but what’s the point?
The point is simply this:
These people not doing their work for me on time, it was simply one of the plants that grew out of the seeds that I’ve planted earlier. I had been stuck in procrastination for way too long, and this has happened as a result of it.
My advice to you:
Be extremely cautious of your words and your habits!
For example, if you keep on saying (or thinking) things like “I will never be rich”, you likely never will!
Through making new habits and planting new seeds, you are able to create a better future for yourself and your family. And like Nike says: “Just do it!”
Also, on a slightly more commercial note: Right now I’m reading the book “Inner Voice” by Russ Whitney, and I’m completely loving the book. In fact the lesson I’ve shared with you today is just one of the nuggets I’ve gotten from reading the book.
I would 100% recommend you pick up a copy from Amazon and read it!
To your success,
