Take a moment and give a thought, prayer and/or meditation of gratitude for what you have in life that is good and great. Sure all things may not be as you’d like, but I assure you even at your lowest point there’s someone right now that is at an even lower point in the human experience.
You may begin to feel a sense of gratitude by writing down all that is good in your life, create an itemized list. Start with the seemingly very small. You may write you’re thankful for the ability to breath without the aid of an oxygen tank or that you have all of your limbs. If you don’t have all of your natural limbs you may be thankful for the artificial limbs you’ve been given. When you don’t have your natural or artificial limbs, you may be thankful for your ability to see, the place in which you reside, the clothes you have to wear, clean drinking and bathing water and so forth. Continue to write a list of all that you have to be thankful for until your hand starts hurting, perhaps then you will experience how great you actually have it in this life time.
Create a gratitude journal. Everyday write out those experiences you’ve had, places you’ve traveled, people you’ve met, conversations you’ve participated in, concerts you’ve attended and so forth. You may include all those opportunities that the preceding day gave you in your gratitude journal. Over time you will read for yourself just how fortunate you are in this life time, despite the occasional curve balls that are thrown your way. Who knows, after consistent writing in your gratitude journal you may have enough information to publish your own paperback and ebook as a way to help others while positioning yourself to earn money while you sleep.
You may define gratitude as showing or having appreciation, giving thanks and/or being grateful. You may also define gratitude as having a great attitude.
Be happy, healthy and wealthy.
“Is your journey inspiring others to be better tomorrow than they are today?”
When first learning about publishing ebooks on Kindle a successful internet marketer (self-made millionaire) said, “JAWAR, one of the main reasons most people never succeed is because they get caught in being perfect,” he went on to say, while you should make your ebooks the best you can don’t get caught in attempting to make them perfect, “JUST GET THEM PUBLISHED!” He was right.
There are a number of people I shared the information with about publishing ebooks on Kindle around the same time I was learning and they are still wondering if they should publish or not … meanwhile I continue to get paid month after month after month after month. STOP PLAYING AROUND and start making your money.
There’s always something to learn, because education is a life long journey not a destination. As long as you know what to do, get going. Tomorrow is promised, we are not and all of us have an expiration date.
Sometimes, often times family doesn’t get where you’re coming from and more importantly, where you’re going. They may be overly critical, condescending, unsupportive and a host of other things you don’t need. In terms of family not overstanding … one of my friends and mentors is a self made millionaire several times over and a number of his family members still don’t get it. Heck one of them contacted me on Facebook and asked me about something he teaches … I looked at the phone and said, while I’m thankful you’re asking me about … you have a relative who is extremely successful and I know they will teach you free of charge, because they are that type of person, you should talk directly to them, because they are the one who taught me.
If you haven’t done so, you’ll want to join the laptop group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/laptopbusiness/ the group is designed to help laptop and home based businesses share information, wisdom and encouragement.
The one thing that all successful people have in common is they get started. This may seem overly simple, but it’s true. Think about all the writers who said or say they want to publish a book, but never finish writing their book, open a Kindle account or upload their book to Kindle after they open they open the account. Think about all the people who say they want to have X number of dollars, but never save or invest their financial resources. In order for you to greatly increase your chances for being a success you have to get started and get started immediately.

Most of us have heard or read that you can make money online, but are often skeptical for a number of reasons. This post is specifically designed to encourage to seek out ways to make money online, because doing so, when done right will free you from the rat race and put you on the course to financial freedom or at least give you some wiggle room from your 9 to 5.
Some ways to have an internet based business includes, but not limited to publishing ebooks (my favorite), affiliate marketing, blogging for dollars, drop shipment (think Amazon, eBay, etc.) and many more.
Some of the things I did to learn about what was real and what were possible scams was to read books about making money online, apply what I could and see what results if any I would have. This is how I started learning to earn money from blogging using Google Adsense. Keep in mind I’ve never made a ton of money from blogging, but to actually receive a check of $100+ from Google was cool, so I knew it was legit and worked. Additionally, this is merely the tip of the iceberg as there are a number of other ways to maximize blogging for dollars.
Publishing ebooks is by far my favorite, because just about anyone can do it, after all you have life, academic, research and/or professional experience that gives you the authority to write and publish your own ebook. There are a number of platforms to publish, but for many people publishing on Amazon’s Kindle is probably best. There are exceptions to this, but going into great details requires more time than I’m willing to commit at this time.
Affiliate marketing is relatively straight forward in that you promote other people’s products using your unique url (code). Whenever someone clicks on the links and buys the product you receive a commission it’s that simple. You may have seen people throughout Facebook posting various links, especially in different groups. Often times these are affiliate links, however, this is NOT the best way to go about being a successful affiliate marketer, because often times you look like a spammer, plus the conversion rate is often really low. There are much better ways to improve your chances for success as an affiliate marketer.
Recently, Amazon has created new opportunities for people to sell products. I’ve come across people who are crushing it, right now, earning $50,000+ a month. Yes, those are real numbers. I haven’t got on the bandwagon, because I’m focused on publishing ebooks while providing professional ebook publishing coaching/consulting services for others to do the same. However, it’s definitely worth looking into as you could earn great money.
None of what I shared should be viewed as get rich quick schemes, each of these opportunities should be viewed as real businesses where you start or eventually set up a business checking account, get a federal tax id and so forth. The point here is to encourage you to seek out the opportunities, so you can change your financial position within the next 12 to 24 months, perhaps sooner if you’re really hungry.
So, that you know I’m sincere about helping you, I intentionally didn’t include any links, hence I’m not attempting to sell you anything, no products or coaching/consulting services.

Even if you have a good job and love what you do, it’s often a great idea to start your own business, become an investor and/or create multiple sources of revenue. Many of us are not privy to the next major economic collapse. Owning your own business, being an investor and/or creating multiple sources of revenue helps to soften the blow.
Use your time online to research various business models, industries and investment opportunities. You may also visit your local library and/or bookstore and read books on the related subjects.
The more you focus, ask questions, follow the information and so forth the greater your chances for long-term success.

The person in the number one spot is always thinking and doing something that everyone else is not doing, has not necessarily done or willing to necessarily do.
While you may receive an abundance of “reportedly free” advice at some point you’ll have to make financial investments into your financial future. This may mean purchasing books, training material, attending classes, hiring mentors, consultants, coaches and so forth.
People with a poor and middle class thinking often shy away from such considerations and yet in the same breath will spend money on non-income producing liabilities.
When will start investing (money and time) into creating a more fruitful financial future for yourself and family?
