Do we really have to think positive?

Do we really have to think positive?

The human brain produces a wide range of emotions, both positive and negative. How we deal with these emotions affects our lives in ways we sometimes don’t even realize. Over the weekend, I saw two movies in theaters that had a strong focus on emotions: Disney’s Inside Out and Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Although the movies were very different from each other at first glance, it made me think about how we deal with emotions every day. Inside Out and Southpaw both help us learn to handle these emotions better so that we can grow our mindset and mature.

Inside Out is a story about 11-year-old Riley, a young girl who loves hockey and whose mind is dominated by the emotion Joy. Four other emotions, Anger, Fear, Disgust, and Sadness, all seem to take a backseat to Riley’s sunny outlook on life thanks to Joy, who works hard to keep the other emotions in check. Joy often wonders why there would be any use for “negative” emotions like Sadness, whom she has to keep a strict eye on to keep her from tainting Riley’s memories. However, when Riley is uprooted from her Minnesota home and moves with her family to California, Sadness sets off a chain reaction that vaults her and Joy from the control center of Riley’s brain, leaving Anger, Fear and Disgust to run the show.

Inside Out shows us that in order to grow and mature, we need a balanced set of emotions. Though we may not like feeling negative emotions, they are necessary for development. The movie has a message that happiness isn’t everything, and when we try to navigate our lives with only positive emotions, we’re missing out on what our other emotions can offer us. A healthy mindset has all of these emotions working in tandem, with Joy leading the way, not dominating.

The movie Southpaw is quite a contrast from Inside Out, but it deals with the same lessons on balancing our emotions and avoiding letting negative ones dominate us. Southpaw is the story of Billy Hope, a champion boxer who lets opponents beat up on him in order to awaken a Hulk-like rage inside, which lets him win the fight in the last minute. Hope’s wife, Maureen, sees how this is damaging his life, especially his relationship with their little daughter Leila. Hope eventually loses his family because of his anger and has to learn proper boxing defence techniques from his coach in his fights in order to win without his horrible rage.

Southpaw shows us exactly how powerful anger can be, and how it can ruin our lives if we let it reign over us. Hope’s character realizes the destructive nature of his anger too late, but the movie also shows us that one can redeem themselves from this kind of life. Discipline and humility lead Hope to a better way of living, and with the balancing of his emotions, he’s able to turn his life around.

The one message that rings perfectly clear in both movies is that in order to live a healthy life, we have to have healthy emotions. This includes both positive and negative emotions. By training ourselves to feel each emotion but react in a positive way, whether it be allowing ourselves to grieve or letting go of pent up anger and frustration, we become the person we were meant to be: happy, healthy and balanced.

Is it possible to do online business without website?

Is it possible to do online business without website?

A widespread misconception about online business is that, in order to have a successful one, you must have your own website. The myth floating around is that you need all the bells and whistles of a fully functioning website or blog, be proficient in writing and marketing, and you need to be able to hold seminars or webinars (a live online seminar). The reality is much different; you can successfully do business online without any of this!

 So how do you do this? The most popular and efficient way is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where you sign up with a company or third-party vendor and place ads on any high traffic website or on social media accounts like Bing, Google+ and Facebook. This strategy is especially effective when using ads that are specific to your niche. If your niche is related to fashion, ads for clothing and designer wear will be the types of ads you should display. Likewise, health and fitness niches will find success with ads for organic food products and exercise equipment.

 Before raking in your profits, however, you’ll first need to find the right affiliate program. This can be overwhelming for new users, and many often give up after a short time because they think it’s easier not to mess with it. In truth, it couldn’t be easier! The internet is full of information about what affiliate programs work best. You will find the most success with affiliate programs that have a wider reach and are well-known with a good marketing team.

 Make sure to check out how much commission you will make from displaying the affiliate program’s ads banners. The most successful online entrepreneurs use affiliate program that have a high commission rate. With low commission rates, it can take forever to make any money; your ads would have to result in a staggering amount of sales before you make a sizable profit. With high commission ads, you won’t need nearly the amount of sales in order to make the same amount of money. Once you get the hang of affiliate ads, it’s time to seek out other companies for more ad opportunities. Simply repeat, and you’ll have a successful online business in no time!

 Aside from social media and other website, one of the hottest tools on the market for affiliate ads is a blog. Many companies will have a blog in addition to their website and use it for promoting their products, but a website isn’t necessary to have a blog. Online platforms like WordPress or Blogger allow you to easily create a blog where you can place ads from affiliate companies. You don’t have to pay for web hosting, setup is quick and easy, and you can start making money immediately! It’s as simple as that.

 With so many money-making options on the internet, from blogging to auction sites to affiliate marketing, it’s never been easier to start your own e-business. Each option offers the opportunity for you to test your business model to see which is right for you, and the best part is that you’ll see immediate results. So don’t hesitate; start your online business today!

Is online business model Eco-friendly?

Is online business model Eco-friendly?

The environmental impact of day to day operations is usually the last thing entrepreneurs think of when first starting up their business. Oftentimes, business owners will wait until there has been significant growth in their company to start worrying about environmental factors such as carbon emissions, recycling costs and other earth-friendly practices. Should we as entrepreneurs wait to implement eco-friendly practices, when it would be so much easier to start right away? How can we create a more environmentally sound business model to reduce our impact on the earth?

First, let’s take a look at some of the facts on how our current business practices affect the environment. The United States alone could save $650 billion by switching from corporate office jobs to an at-home online business model. The emissions from our vehicles as we commute to work every day hang in the air, polluting it and gradually punching holes in the ozone layer. By switching to online business, workers will no longer have to drive in to work every day. Oil consumption would be reduced by 280 million barrels a year, and the greenhouse gas emissions from close to 9 million cars would be eliminated.

Still not convinced? Let’s look at what the individual impact would be if more people worked at home. Think of that self-designed office you’ve always dreamed of; what if you could have it? Working from home means that you can create work space that’s customized to your needs and your personality. The average person would save $1,500 on gas per year, $3,000 on food expenses, and up to $7,000 on child care. More time at home means more time with the kids, and you’ll gain anywhere from four to six weeks of free time by working online. Individualized work schedules and office space also means an increase in productivity, which means more money for you and your company.

A big question is still heavy on the minds of the general public: how does online business work? How do we know that this change in our working environments will be a change for the better? The influence of online marketing is already at work in channels such as social media. Did you know that 46% of online users count on social media when making a purchase decision? In fact, U.S. consumers spend an average of $1,300 online per year, and that number is set to increase by 44% to $1,736 by 2016. In that same year, e-business profits are expected to increase to $327 billion in the U.S. alone. Can you imagine the global impact if everyone threw their chips in for online business? The profit potential is staggering.

Of course, we can’t ignore the fact that the ever-growing trend of E-commerce will have a negative impact, but the truth is that it will do more good than harm. What the negative impact will be is something we have yet to discover. As with every business venture, there will be growing pains, but the positive impact that online business will have on the planet is something that’s difficult to ignore. It’s time for businesses to adopt this new commerce model and change the way we think about marketing for the better.

How to get on to the journey of successful lifestyle?

How to get on to the journey of successful lifestyle?

For the past two years, I’ve been around a lot of successful people, most of them entrepreneurs. Watching how they do business, how they interact with one another, has taught me many unspoken truths as I make my own way in the world. These life lessons are ingrained in their psyche, but to the casual observer, they may not be so obvious. It got me to wondering what they would say if asked how they became successful. How did they do it? What advice would they have for the novice businessman (or woman)?

 To paraphrase Warren Buffet, one of the most successful businessmen in America, the distinction between those who succeed and those that don’t, is that those who do succeed have said “no” to almost everything.

 Don’t believe me? Well, they do. Saying no to things that will only serve to distract you and detract from your main goal is what makes these men and women the business tycoons that they are. Having too much on your plate can take time away from what you should really be working on, such as skills you want to improve or good business habits that take time to form. Keep a close eye on what successful people are doing, and apply those business habits to your own life, then put your own spin on it.

 Time is also an important factor in getting to know yourself and what you really want in life. Knowing who you are and where you want to go is essential to being a successful entrepreneur. No one likes an indecisive person who changes their mind halfway through whatever they’re doing, and if you do this with business deals, you could end up ruining your whole career. Luck isn’t a magical tool that you can whip out and miraculously find success with. As the old adage goes, “Fortune favors the bold.”

 Certain personalities tend to hit it big more than others. Those with an intuitive mind that go with their gut instinct and take chances are the ones who are going to make it. Grit and perseverance go a long way, and you’ll need both to find success in your entrepreneurship. Failure can happen to anyone, but it’s how you deal with it that makes the difference. French economist Jean Monnet once said: “I regard every defeat as a victory.” Wise words from a wise man.

 It’s also wise to realize that you are not an island; no successful entrepreneur ever did it all on their own. Only with the aid of a mentor and a hardworking team can you achieve the kind of success you want and need as an entrepreneur. Finding your very own Yoda or Mr. Miyagi can be a challenge, but it’s worth it to know you won’t be going it alone. Having someone to hold you accountable and help you find what successful principles you can apply to your business is what will ultimately let you achieve your goals.

 So take a look at what others have done. Use the time-tested recipe of copy, paste, edit and apply. Copy what successful people have done, paste it into your own life, edit and improvise your own ideas, and you just apply it and repeat as necessary. It’s the formula that never fails.
