Winning At The Wrong Game


What game are you playing in your life and business?


The journey of life is like a game.

Would you agree?

Think about it for a minute.

Isn’t everything that you do in your life organized in a way that will produce the outcomes that you have been telling yourself that you want over and over in your head?

Looking at your past, you can see the step by step blueprint that got you to where you are right now.

It’s the Play by Play.

And what do most people do with that blueprint?

They burn it into their mind and play it over and over again in their life.


Can you relate?

Have you been playing the instant replay of the game of your life over and over again?

How’s that working out for you?

How is that helping your to get to the desired life you have always dreamed about?

Is it really helping?


Is it just keeping you stuck?

It reminds me of the Movie Ground Hog Day with Bill Murray.

Check out what he went through day after day…

He live the same day over and over and over again until he makes a choice to do something different and then in an instant it changes.

How would you like your life to change in an instant?

To finish the game you have been playing for years and years and just start a new one today, right now.

To give up on that old game and boldly go where you have never been before.

It all starts with the decision.

You telling yourself that it’s game over, your not going into overtime again today, it’s done!

What are you willing to do to end the game of your life that you have been playing in order to start a new one now?

Are you willing to do whatever it takes?

You can do it!

You deserve it!

Make it happen now!

Stop winning at the wrong game in your life.

Choose your new game of the best life that you have always dreamed of.

And continue to ask yourself…

Am I playing the right game?

What You See Is How You Be


Is your environment contributing to your successful life?


Look around, wherever you are.

What do You SEE?

Even more importantly, what do You FEEL?

Is your environment a reflection of your wants, desires and dream life?

Did you know that the more abundant your evironment feels, the more money you will make, and the more joy, fun, and abundance you will attract into your life.

How does that sound?

Would you like some of it for your life?

Your environment is truly a reflection of you.

What you have in the inside always comes out and is reflected by you through you and your environment to the rest of the world.

So, let me ask you again…

When you look around, what do you see and feel?

Are you happy with what it is or does it stir something up inside of you saying that this has to change?

If you don’t like where you are right now in your life, then choose to change it.

It really is that simple. Make the decision that you are not going to take it any longer and then step into the action that it will take to change it.

Most people are not willing to make such a bold declaration to themselves and then take the action needed to make a difference in their life.

They would rather sit in the crap of what they have already created then go through the pain of what could take them out of it and on towards the life they have always dreamed of.

Which will you choose?

Are you willing to do whatever it takes to have what you want and desire in your life?

I mean really, DO WHATEVER IT TAKES?

Alright good.

Here are a couple of things that you can do to help you get started on that journey.

First, stop beating yourself up for what you have done or not done in the past. It’s already over. Get over it and stop kicking yourself about it.

Second, grab a piece of paper and a pen and divide the paper into 2 columns. The first call title it, what I am great at. The second column title it, the crap that I need to get rid of in my life. Now don’t go getting totally down on yourself. Make sure that for each crap thing in your life, you have at least 1 great thing. The great things are in there. I know it and so do you. Just go ahead and get them about along with your crap.

Third, sit with your crap and be comfortable with it. Make friends with it. And then tell it to hit the road because you no longer need or want it in your life. Ask this question: What would it take for me to be rid of all of my crap and allow my greatness to shine through in everything that I do? Now take whatever shows up and run with it. Run as fast as you can towards your life of your dreams. It’s been waiting for you to show up. Now is the time for you to have it.

Finally, clean up your environment. Yow deserve to work and be in a place that inspires you. Clean off that paper on your desk. Through away that stuff that you have not looked at in years. Let some natural light into your space. Buy a plant to keep you company. Yes do it!

What you see is how you will Be.

Are you ready to be who you were born to be?

Let’s get started now.

Keep your dreams alive!

The Life Of The Living Dead


When you look around is it like watching the Living Dead?


Do you see this?

I know that I have.

Most people are walking around as if there was no life within them.


Can you relate?

I know I can… I’ve been there.

It’s like your heart has gone hard and there is not blood pumping through your body.

It’s like there is nothing going on inside, you are just going through the motions.

Zombie walking through life … trying to get to the success that you want and deserve.

Everywhere I look these days, I see it.

People are turned off, and checked out.

Why does this happen?

How do people get into this state?

How the heck can you get out of it?

We have never lived in a time that we had such access to people and information while at the same time barely being connected with the people we live with each day.

Distractions are everywhere.

Most people do not have the ability to focus for more that at least a few minutes, some it is only a few seconds.

This over stimulation leads people to a state of overwhelm and then to the place where they just have had enough of everything and check out.

Zombie’s walking through life… Dead Man Walking!

Now deep down inside of them, they still have their dreams and desires of the greatness they can be in their life.

But it has been pushed down, shoved aside, and torn down so much that they don’t know if it could ever be possible for them.

Hence, they are Zombie’s walking through life on the path to success that unfortunately for most of them, they will never achieve.

If you are feeling this way some of the time, don’t worry. There is hope for you. There is another way. You can snap out of it and change the path you are on to be for fulfilling, fun, and full of the abundance you desire for your life.

It can all change in an instant if you just make a choice and then take action on it.

Make a choice to turn off the distractions that are around you.

Make a choice to take that new action that you know will move you towards your dreams and desires you want in your life.

Make a choice to discipline yourself now so that later you can move with such amazing ease in your life it will be like magic.

Are you ready? Ready to choose another path for your life?

Pick one thing today to leave behind and at the same time pick one new thing to pick up in it’s place that will move you forward.

Share your choices below…

The Frequency of Your Success


What frequency are you running at?


High? Low? just middle of the road?

Do you have any idea how the frequency that you are operating at affects the things that come in and out of your life?

Most people have no idea and are totally oblivious to how others see and perceive them.

And at the same time, these people wonder why the have a hard time having others to trust them and believe in them.

Do you know what happens to these people?

They end up just coasting through life, just getting by, and never really achieving and experiencing the life of their dreams.

Let’s face it, we were put on this planet to live our life full out. To experience everything thing that is available to us and so much more!

Do you think that operating at a low or just getting by level of energy is going to help you to experience the fullness of your life?

I didn’t think so.

So what does it take to dial up your energy and stand out above the crowd?

Did you know that if you raised your energy just 1% more than everyone around you, people would start to notice you in a totally different way?

Image just for a second what that can feel like…

Pretty good eh?

Now what would happen to your life if you dialed up your energy 5% more than most other people?

Can you see what that would be like? Can you feel what would happen inside of you?

It would be like you are standing on the top of a mountain reaching for the stars in the sky.

Anything would be possible for you and everyone around you would be looking to you to inspire them to reach that same level of energy themselves.

You would be at a level where infinite possibilities would come into your life on a regular basis.

How does that sound? Do you want some of that for your life?

I know I sure do?

So I know what your thinking now… That sounds great, but how do I dial up my energy and stand out above the crowd.

Let me give you a couple of ways you can do that…

1. Move your Body. Yes, get your body moving and your blood pumping. The best way that I like to do this is to turn on some music and crank it up loud and dance around (well mostly jump around since my dancing according to my daughter, isn’t that great LOL). What’s your favorite tune? Put it on, crank it up, and get your energy to a new level like it has never been before (or at least in a while).

This is one of my favorite energy boosting songs right now…

2. Take care of yourself and your body. How you feel about yourself and your body will change the energy that you put out into the world. Take a look in your closet and at the cloths that you have. As you scan through them, feel the energy that comes over you. When it increases, pick that one and put it one. Take a look at yourself in the mirror and smile. Watch your energy sore. If you want to get really wild, then go out to a clothing store and shop for something new to wear. Listen to how your body feels as you try things on and get yourself some new cloths that make your body sing with joy when you wear it.

There are just a couple of ways that you can raise your energy and push your life to a whole other level.

If you are ready to step into the life of your dreams that is waiting for you, then just do it.

Make the choice today to raise up your energy above what you have been doing and stand out above the crowd as the leader that you truly be.

You will thank yourself for it later, and many people will thank you for stepping it up and being their to serve them in ways that you could not before.

What ways to you increase your energy and dial up your success?

How do you speak to potential customers and clients?


Do you speak with confidence and power when you are asking for what you want?


Do you lack energy and passion when speaking with a new potential customer or client?

Most people are so reserved when they speak to others, that they put doubts in their mind that what they are speaking about is even possible.

Have you had that happen to you? Have you had someone try to offer their services to you and you could tell that they really were not interested in what they were selling? Or even worse, did not believe that you could deliver what you say you can?

You had this feeling inside of you that they would rather be somewhere, anywhere else, than being with you at that moment having the conversation?

Have You spoken to people in this way?

I know I have and it still comes up from time to time. It’s ok. It’s all part of the journey. It can be better than that.

So what holds back your energy and passion for speaking with so much Bold Confidence that the other person will have no doubt that what we are telling them can be and will be done?

It all comes back to that FEAR thing that keeps us save and sound, but at the same time holds us back.

This mixed without actually knowing EXACTLY How we are going to achieve the things we tell our customers and clients we can do for them.

It holds most people back and keeps them small.

Are you in that space right now?

What are you willing to do to get out of it?

Would you be willing to make another choice? Choose another action?

Are you willing to Speak UP the the most power and confidence that you could ever imagine for yourself and let people know who you are and what you can contribute to their business and life?

Let me share something with you that you might not realize…

There are people out there in the world that are looking for you. Looking for you as the one who can be the greatest contribution to who they are and what they can become in their life.

If you choose not so show up and speak up as you truly be, they will have not idea that you are the one they are looking for.

Now how selfish is that?

I know that there are no guarantees in life… and most people are afraid that they will not achieve the outcomes that they want to….

BUT there is most certainly a guarantee that if you choose to do nothing different that what you are already doing, NOTHING DIFFERENT WILL HAPPEN!!!!

So are you willing to STEP UP and GO FOR IT?

Take BOLD ACTION and tell the world what you can do for them?

Now is your time…

People are waiting for you.

Tell the world who you are and how you can be a contribution to them and watch how all the things that you have been wanting and desiring will start to show up…

You deserve it!

Do it NOW!

Don’t Settle For What You Got


Do you get what you want in your life?


I know Mick Jagger has told us that …

“You Can’t Always Get What We Want”

But is that really true?

For most people, I would say an absolute YES!

You see, most people settle for less than ideal situations and results in their life.

Can you relate?

Do you know anyone who has done that?

Maybe you have done that from time to time in your life?

I know I do and I have.

It’s just part of the journey towards the life of your dreams.

Sometimes we get comfortable with where we are and we just get stuck.

And end up settling for stuff that we know we don’t want or desire in our life but it just happens.

But guess what…

It doesn’t have to be that way!

You don’t have to stay in that state of ‘Stuck’ and ‘Settling’!

You have the most amazing power within you to choose what you want and desire in your life at any moment.

If fact, if you look at your life at this very moment, it is a combination of the choices you have made on the journey so far.

How does it look?

Are you Settling for what you have?


Going for it and having everything you want and desire?

So what are you waiting for?

Step up and choose it now!

It doesn’t matter where you have been. It just matters where you are now and choosing what you want and desire in this moment!

Nothing new happens in your life unless you make different choices and take different actions that you have been before.

Make sense?

So, here’s what you need to do for you…

Make the choice right now to step up and have all that you want and desire in your life.

You have dreams, I know you do. Everyone does.

Make the choice right now to have them, and then step into the action that will make them come to be.

Are You READY?

Let’s GO!

See you on the other side of your dream life…

Are You Struggling To Use Facebook to Grow Your Business?

Not seeing the results that you want?

Are you asking yourself the right questions?

The answers to most problems you are having are in the quality of the questions you are asking.

Here are the top 5 questions that you should be asking when you are marketing your business on Facebook and why they are important.

1. What is the best way to drive interactions on my Facebook page?

Content, Content, and more Content. Yes, Content is KING! and the most effective way to drive interactions on your Facebook page is by creating and sharing fresh and unique content on a consistent basis. With this content it will allow your followers to start discussions around the content that you share. Don’t just blast your Facebook page with self-promotional materials, but post content that is valuable to the your fans and community. This will not only engage them, but it will encourage them to share your content with others.

2. How often should I be replying to fans?

Well let me ask this question another way… How often would you reply to customers that call into your support center or help desk?
Answer: Stay in Touch Constantly! Yes. That’s right! Respond to fans and people who “like” your company just like you would your current customers that call into your help desk. Why would you act any differently? If they have a question or a request, spend the time to address these. Although this can be very time-consuming activity, it will help you increase brand awareness and drive home the message that you care about your customers and fans a like. From this, the word will get out about you and your business.

3. Are using images proven to be more effective than just using words on Facebook pages?

When it comes to using Facebook… Images MATTER! Using images and photos on Facebook is critical to attracting the attention of others. Messages presented in a visual way are much the most effective when utilizing a social media marketing channel like Facebook. There has never been a time where businesses can leverage that than now. Just the simple act of letting people tag, like, and share your photos can turn into huge exposure for your business.

4. How often should I post promotional content on my Facebook page?

Hint… No one likes to be sold too and everyone likes to be sold to. Get it? When we are considering posting promotional content on our Facebook page, we need to understand this idea. It all comes down to message to market match. If you know the message that your market wants to hear, then you never will be actually selling at them through your promotions, you will be marketing to them right where they are at. At the same time, always consider adding value in everything that you offer. Whether it is a blog post, video, audio… adding into the life of your customers and prospects through value is the key to your success when posting content on your Facebook page.

5. Is there any value to creating and using Facebook groups?

Yes, at the right time, for the right reason, and with the right audience of people. This helps to build the reputation of yourself and your business by creating an intimate setting for connecting with them. Facebook groups allow you to demonstrate your expertise in a specific area. As you build relationships with others in the same field, you can increase your position and gain brand recognition. Make sure you have the right people in the group to make this happen.

So there you have it. The Top 5 Questions that you should be asking to have success marketing your business on Facebook.

The Secret To Who’s Your Ideal Prospect?


If you have been in business for any length of time you most likely have been
asked the following question…

Who is your ideal prospect?

Whether you have heard it from a coach, mentor, or read it from a book or the latest
training course you just bought or webinar you atteneded, the core to any successful
business comes down to know the answer to this question.

Here is what comes up for most people.

1. Everyone, the product I sell is good for all people.

2. Ummmm… Women who want to loose some weight.

3. Someone who is in debt and wants to get out of it.

4. Anyone who wants to make an extra $500 a month while still doing what they are doing.

just to name a few.

Do they sound familiar to you?

Have you answered this question in this way before?

If so, not to worry. You are not alone out there.

But if you want to have a successful business and market your products
and services in a way that will attract the ideal prosepct in your life,
you will need to work a bit more at answering this critical question.

Here are three areas to focus on when attacking this question in your business.

1. What are the demographics of your prospect.

These are the typical statistics that you most people think of when starting
to seriously determine their ideal prospect. It is things like, their age,
gender, household income, marital status, etc. Grab a pen real quick and
write these things down about your ideal prospect.

2. What are the geographics of your prospect.

This is the information that relates to where your prospect is located.
Things in this category include, Country, State, Province, County, City,
Neighbourhood, Street, etc. It is the phsyical location of where your
prospect lives in the world. This information is particularly important
if the products and services that you sell have some restrictions in
certain countries or locations in the world. Again, grab your pen and
write these things down.

O.K. These planet maids cleaning service are the typical things that people consider when thinking of their
ideal prosepect of change. Are you starting to paint a picture of who they might be?

Now onto the last piece of the puzzle. One that most people do not think about
and at the same time, most people do not teach about. Here it is…

3. What are the psychographics of your prospect.

This is the hardest part for most people to wrap there head around, but at
the same time, it is the most important part of the process in identifying
your ideal prospect. In this area you describe things like, what movies
do they watch, where do they shop, what foods to they eat, where to they
go when they eat out, what newspapers do they read, what online websites
do they visit, what kind of things do they search for on Google, and the list
goes on and one. Here you are digging into the details of how your ideal
prospect interacts with the world. Once you figure this out, then you will
know what to say to them when they show up. If you are speaking their language,
then they will know that you are the one that can help them with what they
are looking for. Grab your pen again and write down all of the psychographic
information that you can about your ideal prospect.

So there you have it. The foundation of what you need to identify your idea
prospect for your business.

But there is one more thing…

One Secret that I have found that comes from all of my clients that I have done
this exercise with. It is so simple that when you here it you will have a light
bulb go off in your head. It will allow you to effortlessly move into flow and
ahead with your business.

Want to know what it is?

Send an email to edwardelliott@aweber.com
with the subject line: “Tell Me The SECRET Edward!” and I’ll send it right over to you.

You will be blow away at what it is.

Windows And Doors Of Opportunity


Have you decided? Decided to move forward towards your Goals and DREAMS?

Do you know what happens next?

Windows and Doors of opportunity open up in your life.

Almost like MAGIC, they appear once you have made that choice and decision that no matter what, you are going for your DREAMS!

Now when this opening of great opportunity show up, what do most people do?

There are three types of reactions that happen when open windows and doors stand before people.

The first is the BLIND State.

Opportunity is showing up all around you. It couldn’t be any closer than if it hit you up side the head.
All of your goals and DREAMS can be fulfilled if you just looked and knew that they were there.
But in this state, you are BLIND to them. They might as well not even be there because you don’t see them.
It’s like the Universe is bringing you a gift, the one you have always been asking for, and have been waiting for a long time to receive, and when it shows up, you don’t even know that it is there. The STATE of BLINDNESS!

The second is the STATE of LAST MINUTE!

You see before you a window of opportunity opening up for you. You feel it inside you. You know that it is the one thing that will move you forward in the direction to fulfill your goals and dreams. It opens slowly at first, just a crack, as you sit there an watch it. Finally it is open all the way and you just gaze into it’s vastness. Questions start filling your mind. Things like… “Is this really the opportunity I have been waiting for?” … “Will it really get me there?” It still feels right, but you hesitate. In your waiting the window starts to close, slowly at first and then speeding up… You see that there is just a crack left open and at that moment, you squeeze yourself through it and onto the other side. You just made it. LAST MINUTE!

The third and final STATE is what I call Just FRICKIN’ DOING IT!

In this state, as soon as you see the slightest crack of a window of opportunity opening up before you, you bust through it with full force towards the other side. Glass if flying and since you are moving at lightning speed, you don’t even get a scratch on you. In fact in some cases you see the window in front of you and before it even opens you smash your way through it because it just feels like the right one. Now in some cases you may go through the wrong window or door, but who cares, just turn around and walk back out as fast as you went through. JUST FRICKIN’ DO IT!

Now as you go through your life on the path towards your goals and dreams, most people will find themselves in one or more of these states when windows of opportunities show up.

I know that I have.

Which state will you choose to be the next time one shows up for you?
