Personal Growth Health and Happiness

Changes Happen without warning.


You know you suddenly didn’t go from doing everything right to doing everything wrong. You still put in great effort and do all you are required to do and more. But that was not different, for you were always going above and beyond and yet now… suddenly……

For some reason nothing you seem to do “matters”. It is as if all your time and effort is wasted. You wonder if you should even try to continue on… why strive for an unreachable goal of which you reached time and time again and then sudden cannot!

There is nothing that says what you are doing is wrong in anyway and yet you feel the struggle set in and wonder… what has happened…

Suddenly in a place you once felt greatly welcomed, now you do not. Goals that you once reached are unattainable to you now, without any just cause.

What a strange feeling this is so very new to me. We failed to write down our goals.


Can we back up the train? Somehow life seems to be heading the wrong way. We missed some goals and some stops along the way. Where are we headed? Is this a dead end route?

Conductor, please tell the engineer we are wasting time and missing some goals we have set.  We spent too much time on Facebook and Twitter and failed to write down our goals and set them in our schedule. We switched our mind and went on the wrong track for a while.

My time is important to me. I would like to be on the right track and moving on toward my goals. Some time ago we were reaching and fast approaching our destination, then suddenly a switch flipped and the target got moved or we moved off target. We missed some goals that were attainable.  We were sidetracked. Can we go back?  Can we pick up the pieces and make new plans?

Are we headed in the right direction?  What is our schedule? Do we have plans to make changes when necessary?

We can do it.  Let’s give it a try.  Think of the possibilities. Happiness is in the journey.  This train will not come to the end of the line.

Wise use of our time, setting attainable goals, enjoying the ride and sharing the results is where we will find the greatest pleasure.

I don’t have time to hate people who hate me, too busy loving those who love me. I am so very thankful for all my friends and family that have shared my life and stood by me in time of need.

With change comes opportunity to set new attainable goals and define our purpose. We can  begin again to develop our strong character. We can learn to improve by our mistakes and by reading and listening to leaders and others we can become what we want to be and accomplish our goals

Dear Friend,
Ever wonder how much of a genius you have to be for your marketing know how to pay off for you?
Here’s a story that reveals the answer.
Today I ran into the lady who runs my local computer repair shop.
“That banner you told me to put up WORKED! I’ve gotten 5 jobs from it just this week,” referring to the big yellow banner outside the shop reading “Virus Removal Experts.”
Now, actually, the headline I gave her was along the lines of “Viruses Removed — Guaranteed!”
Or something like that.
But what she’s running is working, so I ain’t tellin’ her to change it anytime soon.
Flash back in time to 3 weeks earlier. We were talking about how she could get more customers.
Drawing on my vast storehouse of marketing wisdom, I inquired, “What’s the #1 best seller you got around here?”
“Virus removal,” she snapped back.
“See that blank spot on the sign out front? Will they let you put anything on that?”
She replied with a skeptical tone, “Well, you’d have to PAY for that. But they will let me hang a banner up.”
Being the marketing genius I am, I replied, “How ’bout you put somethin’ up there on a yellow banner…like your viruses Removed — Guaranteed!
“…or perhaps….Viruses Removed in 48 Hours — Guaranteed.
“Or…Free Virus Analysis.”
I spouted off some blatantly obvious stuff like that anyone with any knowledge of and skill in headlines whatsoever coulda come up with.
Anyway, she put the yellow banner up with the relatively lame “virus removal experts.” And it paid off in spades.
“Next time you come in, your repair is free,” she offered generously.
Now, you may be thinking that all the money you spend on ebooks, courses and so forth is a waste if you don’t start a business.
Look at it this way.
You can get a lot of free stuff like computer repair, dry cleaning or whatever…Just by having the most basic, simple understanding of marketing.
Anyway, I popped by later and showed her how to run an editorial style ad dropping into a hotline followed up by a series of letters ala Dan Kennedy/Jeff Paul model.
Again, this ain’t rocket science stuff.
You shoulda seen her eyes light up.
Then I came up with a back end for her since her profit margin is horrible.
And if you’ve studied headlines a little and know just the basics of lead generation, you pretty much coulda done the same.
How much of a genius do you gotta be to come up with a headline like:
“What will YOU do when your wife, kids and friends see P-O-R-N popup on YOUR computer? We get if off FAST! Guaranteed. Or it’s free.”
See, all this marketing stuff might end up not bein’ a waste for you after all.
Fact is, with a little direct response knowledge, you can appear to be a genius to a LOT of businesses.
Best Wishes,
Marlon Sanders
