How Much Do You Want It?

…how much do you want to be successful at what you’re doing?

A lot….you’ll say.


But, I’m sure if you cut the crap, you’ll admit you’re kidding yourself.

You’re doing things that aren’t the best use of your time.

You’re listening to the wrong people.

You’re buying products that are pulling you in the wrong direction.

Matt Furey, (Google him if you’ve never heard of him), says that the one thing that’ll make you successful is…..desire.

If you really want what you want, you’ve got too much to do to…follow the latest ‘Is it gold, or black?’ discussion on social media….the latest box set that drops on Netflix…what Trumps’s doing….whether Brexit’s going to work or not….and a ton of other distractions.

That’s not where your attention should be.

If you want to be a better writer, you should only be focusing on making your writing better.

If you want to be building an email list, you should be working on building an email list.

If you want a coloring book, puzzle book, empire then that’s your lane, stay in it.

January’s going to be here soon, and you’re going to make promises to yourself, your spouse, family, and then break them by February.

‘But this year’s going to be different,’ you say.

So was last year, and so was the year before.

How much do you want it?

What’s your desire for what you want?

How much will you fight for it?

How much are you willing to cut the crap and stop kidding yourself?

This time next year, you’ll know the answer to that question.

PS – Oh, and I wrote this for me too…yeah, I’ve fallen off the wagon a few times this year as well.

Happy Monkey Day!

…what’s invisible and smells of bananas?
A monkey’s fart.

You’re probably wondering why we’re celebrating Monkey Day today.

Seems, it all started when Casey Sorrow, an art student at Michigan State University, wrote “Monkey Day” on his friend’s calendar as a prank.

And that prank spread through the University and more students in other places took it up.

Seems the weirdest things can catch on, with the least of effort. Had Casey went out of his way to push the date, it probably would have fallen on deaf ears.

That’s the way it goes.

Sometimes we think following the crowd and copying what’s working, will work for us, but that’s not always true.

Something I’d say a lot of Harry Potter copycats have found to their frustration.

Sure, it helps to follow the money, but sometimes you’ve got to run with the craziest idea you have, because you
don’t know where it’s going to take you.

Take the coloring book course I put together.

It was one of my easiest products to put together and was one of my most successful.

Who knew you didn’t need to know how to draw to create a great looking coloring book?

I’d didn’t.

Super Simple Coloring Books.

PS – An Arizona SWAT was once considered adding a three pound Capuchin monkey to their team. Seems someone thought fitting him with a miniature camera, and sending him into buildings before they went in was a good idea.

OK, maybe not…every…crazy idea should be followed through on. 🙉

Even 7 Year Old’s Are Earning More Than Me…

…I never thought I’d see the day when a 7 year old would kick my butt, but it seems they don’t make them like they use to.

Seem’s the highest paid earner on YouTube earned 22 million bucks this year, which in any man’s money is a lot of bucks, and all by reviewing toys…and he’s only 7.

Which makes me wonder, what am I doing wrong, and what the hell does the kid have to look forward to on Christmas morning?

I mean, if you’ve seen it all, and played with it, what’s there to look forward to getting from ole Saint Nic.

First World problem, right?

Now, if YouTube pulled his account down tomorrow I think he’d survive on what he’s made so far…..I doubt he’d be dumpster diving around the back of Toys R Us….but he does leave himself open to it happening.

Same goes for you. What’s your weakest link?

The best time to fix it is before anything bad happens. ….I sure could have taken my own advice a few months back.

Had I known what I know now, I’d probably be on a stronger footing today.

And having your own email list, and platform, is one of those things you all should be doing.

I’m glad I’ve had some of that already in place.

If you’ve been putting it off, because you’re terrified to talk to strangers through email, that you need a copy of Email Ace.

Yeah, it’s more expensive than my other products, but it’s a skill you can take to the grave with you.
