Focus is painful and it sucks!?!

I’m laughin my ass off right now!

What you’re about to read may just piss you the &^%$ off!

I can hear it now, “Dan what the hell is wrong with you? You’re shooting yourself in the foot! You can’t defame what you do or what you teach?!” Actually I’m not doing any of that. I’m being honest, I’m being real. Focus is a four letter word, and it involves a four letter word, “WORK”.

“GOOD LORD DAN! HAVE YOU LOST YOUR HEAD YOU JUST MENTIONED WORK [AKA] THE F WORD!?!?! WE THOUGHT YOU WERE IN MARKETING WHAT THE HELL YOU DOIN?”

Freakin Relax will ya? Don’t get your panties ina bunch! There is a horrendous disease creeping about the internet that devours peoples hopes and dreams of getting something for nothing. Quick Instant Income With No Intelligence Required; IE… no work on your part.

The site is up and google knows you’re there, now where the hell are all the visitors?

I digress:

While I am TOTALLY guilty of applying these practices for some affiliate marketing and my clients campaigns [hipocrite?] I believe in the fact that you need to earn a living. As for this site and my services? Well… I’ve focused on everyone else for so long I’ve realised THIS was the most important place to BE. There was very little me here.

Much of what was here has been about others. I had tons of personal posts here that disapeared with a crash. The universe said it was time for a rebirth. A time to change my focus.

So.. with that said.. I’ll go this far.

Whats the key to focusing successfully? Keep It Simple! Take Action!
Don’t overload yourself with tasks and worries and concerns. Just Focus! Concentrate!

Have before you, ONE THING to do and one thing only.
One thing to read, one thing to write.
One email to send
One call to make
One thing to get done.

You say you’re a multi-tasker? …[snickering] How’s that going for ya?
I used to multi-task. I gave that up for Lent. Multi-tasking is the worlds design to keep you on the caged rat wheel. You are certainly no rat, and niether am I.

Leave yourself alone and let the universe bring you to your goal free of distractions.

I’ve been focusing on marketing for the last 2 years like it was a college masters exam. THAT required  laser-like uninterupted focus. The kind of focus where if you slack? Thats exactly what you’ll get back… SLACK.

When all is said and done after

  • Buying several, thousand dollar programs,
  • Working for an internet e-commerce service provider..
  • Workin under another successful student of Jay Abraham
  • Delivering email campaigns that sold up to $10k a month..
  • Building a membership site that raked in $4k a month in 2 weeks..
  • Crafting a video that pulled in, one out of five visitors to optin to the list..
  • Taking an SEO blog post to position 2 under Frank Kern’s masscontrolsite.com
    in less than 24 hrs and held it for days single handedly..
  • Repeating that several times in different areas,
  • Also in 24hrs I took a keyword with 5.7 million competing references and placed 3rd on page one of google..
  • Showing a new client how to focus and make hdtv affiliate sales in 7days..
  • And knowing that without some powerful tools and resources you’re just another post, page or site in the sea of cybespace.

I know what the hell I’m talkin about. FOCUS GETS THE JOB DONE!

But when it comes to traffic? Well, thats where it REALLY takes a CAN DO attitude! Or knowing a good friend with the right resources.

Is there room in your comfort zone to enjoy an inspiring thought, but not enough to actually act on it?

It’s been written, As A Man Thinketh, NOT As a man believeth.. Think on what you have to do.

Feelings are not facts, life makes you feel, as you feel is very powerful. If you think thoughts that change your perception, feelings change in line with those thoughts. And ultimately change your life.

Is life having its way with you, or are you having the time of your life?

A thought, a single thought, can not only shake, but shatter a belief in an instant.

If you remain true to your thoughts and keep your perception in line with your focus, you will be a master of your life. Not the other way around..

Focus on what it is you want to accomplish. Then go accomplish it.

If you have a challenge, especially in regards to marketing? I’ve seen it.

I’ve been there, I’ve been bounced to the curb by some heavy weights. I took on HDTV’s after the holidays and ranked for 5 top makes and models with in hours. Then some blackhat [who will rename nameless because I don't want to piss Howie off] wanted to create a case study and we got smashed within days…

I went back to the super-ninja labs, I focused on making sure it won’t happen again. That goes for me or anyone else who decides to come along with me. I found the resources and developed a team of er um, people focused to take on any market. The blackhats had tools and resources a plenty that I was unable to finance at the time. Surprise! Not anymore!

People are making serious life changing income on the net, and everyone I know has that opportunity. But only a few will take this moment and move forward for what they want.

In fact only 2% of you will take action after reading this, WHAT!?!?  LOL this is great, b/c my piece of the pie just stays that much wider.. pfffft!!  Nahh thats BS, and I know it.. I’m not like that.
Online marketing requires lots of focus and lots of action. It’s the F word incarnate.
One site requires support and cannot stand on its own. Many people work so hard just to get, just that one site up,  that when its done? They’re pretty much mentally & emotionally exhausted.

Too tired to go further? You spend hard earned time and energy to learn enough to get that far. You want to be able to see it through to the end don’t you? Gain top rank in google for a particular keyword-phrase.. Get visitors coming everyday, not just when you post on twitter.

The site is up and google knows you’re there, now where the hell are all the visitors?

Google my name, “danlopez2012″ my name has been in existance since last August. How many references do you see? Damn, last I saw it was at 60,000!?!

You think I’ve been busy? Damn Straight! Focused.

So here’s the deal.  A little marketining 101 if you will,

This is what you been told in the past.

Find a need and fill it, Be AWESOME And Extrodinary, find a service or a product, have a site and a compelling offer, learn copywriting, learn SEO, have an autoresponder and the money is in the list…. Shall I continue?

All this is like… duh!?  But the real kicker is getting people to your site. Now, mind you, I can get people to your site regardless of what it is or how bad, and I do mean how bad your particular market is. But its better to have actually thought this through first or start from scratch and don’t freakin look back.

One caveate, I don’t do porn, I’m a family man for petes-sake gimme a break. And If you can’t market porn somethings seriously wrong anyways…

With that said, I’ve stuck to true fashion tried and true methods of traffic generation. Articles, blogposts, backlinks, videos, comments and bookmarking campaigns..  INTRODUCING!

If you’re BRAND-NEW and you don’t have your site up and running yet, don’t continue any further. What I’m about to offer will … “Bring The Rain”.

This is a course, this is not a service offering that starts openly this week. At the moment its only open to fellow twitters, and some lucky ones who get past my admin. It’s traffic getting, plain and simple.

It’s not going to get you banned or blacklisted or anything like that, but this is what you should have known about after spending so much to get… I’m getting too detailed.. Sign up for a serious chance to start getting traffic to your hard worked site. Most submissions approved within 24 hrs.

Success is now.

Heartfelt notes from the present.

I came across a document that said “Keys To Success” by someone or other, actually I’m being kind as I don’t necessarily want to bash anyone.  It took me 29 pages to figure out what the person was selling. Which is saying a lot since most of the preceeding paragraphs were pretty compelling.

And then the negatives came flooding in. 1st it was the technique they were trying to introduce the reader to, and then it was some ill stated psychotheraputics. The likes of which made a mockery of affirmations and the power they actually hold if given true study and application.

The one glaring statement I beheld was “Even though I have this fear of rejection, I deeply and completely accept myself”  Ehhh… WRONG!!  You see the mind only hears

“I fear rejection”

Why is that?  Frik if  I know.. It has something to do with the human condition and the way the subconsiouss processes what its been fed for so long. It’s negative stimulus has been programmed to digest what its used to over new thoughts and ideas and even habits. Thats mainly why change is so damn hard for the majority of the planet.

So, over the weekend I was re-introduced to affirmations in the form of “I AM” statements. These are very, very powerful tools for you to use today. I can’t, well… now I can remember why I had forgotton these. Personally it was the walking away from walking the talk a long time ago.

Ever do that? Have something working for you and then for whatever reason, something replaced your values with different hopes? Ones that just called to immediate needs and desires? Take it from me, if its workin for you? Don’t stop because of a new love, a boss a desired friendship or the like..

Whats workin for you will propell you and keep you. The new things won’t, at least sooner or later that will be found out. And usually the hard way.

Back to the weekend though.. “I AM” statements. I had the pleasure to think of a few while I was sitting in my chair and put them to paper. Mind you, it had been a while since I’d done such and I’m a firm believer of “thoughts are things”.

Let’s see if I can frame this for ya. The gist is to BE, in the now, what it is you want to be, have, know, live, experience, desire, want, whatever. As if it’s present tense. So if I want a .. scratch that..let me back up a sec. Desire and Intention. these are extremely purposeful in their value here.

Oh heck! I’ll share with you what I wrote..  Don’t laugh.. yet.. you might want to use a few yourself..

Here we go..

  • I AM passionate & enthusiastic
  • I AM a warrior peaceful & true
  • I AM an amazing power of example
  • I AM an over achiever
  • I AM sought out by powerful positive influences in life
  • I earn $$$ a month
  • I AM a focus coach
  • I AM a deliverer
  • I AM a healer
  • I AM a channel of light
  • I AM a rockstar
  • I AM action incarnate

Do you get the picture? It’s not just about the things you want in life, If you are good or great at something, put it in there also. These are things that are reaffirming you and your strenghths, talants, pleasures, desires and intentions in life.

Once written, these little powerful tools will begin to give life as they have now been given thought and action in the written form. When we speak them to ourselves it trebels the effect. The spoken word has an amazing power behind it.

How often have you said, “Oh I could never do that” and sure e-freakin-nuff’ …..  You Didn’t Do That!??! It’s a self fullfilling prophesy. Mind you..

Intent as I mentioned is critical. Saying these things and being halfhearted about them and not beleiving in them will avail your intent. “You Have Not Because You Ask Not”.

See yourself in these statements, as you read them. Put them on cards and take them out as often as you can, write them on a sheet and place them somewhere you HAVE to see them. One pattern is when you rise, midday, and when you retire.

Is there any coincidence that this pattern is part of the secret behind the 2nd chapter of Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”? I’m not claiming this is where it came from. But its quite intriguing to notice, most success stories, lie in the fact that most people who came into well to do status, did so because they saw themselves there in the first place.

If you only knew the level of people that I engage with regularly your head would tilt on its side. But, I had decided sometime ago I was to return to a better me that I had been. And in order for me to do that, I had to see myself as I had been, I had to feel what it was to be where I was. I had to smell touch and hear what that “better me” time was.

And today I AM that better me.

Now you may be saying, “Dan, wait, you had some previous reference point with which to pull from.” “Dan,  you don’t know my life. Dan, you don’t know what its like to be me or in my shoes.” “Dan, This can’t possibly be something I can just dream into existense.”

Let me just say this; Friend? You couldn’t be more wrong about me. One of the most read darkest stories I wrote is posted on this blog. It’s not one of my best written nor is it something I’m attached to. It just is.  And thats just barely scratching the surface.

But the difference between that post and the life I live today is amazing.  Today, tomorrow and the next day are only going to be better. Becuase I AM living it now. I AM the life now.  I AM my thoughts now, I AM my actions now. I AM my future now!

Get some I AM statements. Read them, and read them often, not just everyday. But particularly read them when you’re freakin knee deep in doubt and fear and it all seems like life is just sureal. Because it is! but, if we stay focused and positive and remain true to our I AM’s?

We’ll be looking back at our I AM statements and marking the ones that are or have come to being with gladness and amazement.

We’ll be creating new I AM statements regularly, hell, maybe even daily who knows?

Peace–
