Hey CyberJunkie, Clean that Booger off Your Nose!
Well....., I got some good news and I got some bad news. It's come to my attention that some of you want to be cyberjunkies. Which do you want first? I'll give you the good news first. YOU can!! It's very simple. The bad news is: It's not easy and it could be messy.
Let's take a look at both.
Simple is as simple does. Most everyone reading this is somewhat computer savvy. At least you know how to turn the thing on and maneuver around. So, I'm assuming you Haven't just brought it home and taken it out of the box.
Most too often, cyberjunkies get caught up in the way something works, the theory behind it and trying to logically make sense out of it. DON'T DO THAT!!
This is one of the main reasons cyberprofiting is not easy. WE make it hard. We make it hard in our own minds.
There are unlimited resources on the net to tell you how to do something. But, have you ever noticed how long it takes you to initiate action after you have completely read the book you just purchased? YOU make it hard on yourself! Just because you don't understand everything you read or completely follow what the author says, you say to yourself, I'll wait till I understand it.
Now, I've stopped talking to you and gone to preaching to myself.
I want to relay to you a short but amusing story. When I first started on the internet it was late 1996. I was single, still am, hummm.........I wonder if that means anything,
Anyway, I was on AOL one night looking at ladies profiles. Well, all of a sudden, this window pops up on my screen and nearly scares the pee out of me. I thought my computer had gone to messing with my head. Anyway, the window had a send button, so I figured I could type something and send it back.
Well, This lady on the other end says to me after some short introductions, "Do you cyber"? I said, "what is cyber"? Now remember, I have only been on the internet less than a week. So, she says, "You know" Cyber. I said No, "What is cyber"? She said, "CYBER SEX" in all caps. Kinda like she was getting mad at me.
I said, almost nervously, I think my fingers were mumbling, "What is cyber sex"? She said, "You know, sex on a computer". I said, "Well, I guess it's ok unless you fall off". True story.
I tell you this because today I've gone from a total "know nothing" to running two full time businesses in cyberspace. I am a popular recording artist and have just completed my first album and working on my second. Yea, I just had to plug that.
And, I have a full time Internet Marketing business. But, don't we all? Ha! Music is my passion, and the internet business gives me the flexibility to pursue my passion. In fact, I'm writing an article on discovering your passion. Most people don't even know what their passion is.
So, the hardest thing in cyberspace you'll ever do is programming your mind to stop sabotaging your own efforts.
Action is the key to overcoming all sorts of non-understandable theory, ideas and concepts. Find ONE thing in the program, focus on that until you feel confident to move to the next one. I got news for you........you'll never completely understand all the theories and concepts until you do begin to take action.
Then, and only then, will things begin to fall into place. So, the next time you find yourself sitting in front of your computer screen doing nothing, at least clean the booger off your nose. It might get messy, but at least you'll be doing something. :>)
Part 1: Stay tuned for part two.

Its My Blankey and Im Keeping It!
"Blankey" ? as in Security Blankey. OK? All parents know what this is. Sometimes it's an actual "blankey", or it may be a pillow, a doll or some other favorite toy or scrap of material. It's the "thing" that provides a measure of security to developing young minds in a sometimes scary new world. It's the "thing" the little ones sleep with, eat with, and lug around until it becomes almost unrecognizable. God forbid that we should ever misplace our blankey. It would be absolutely impossible to live without it!
Need Help? Look Within First
After eating a turkey and dressing sandwich for breakfast, I am raring to go! For those of you who wrote and asked where the article was last week, I appreciate the fact that you look for it!

Look for the link on the front page of www.creativemasterminds.com.
Your Life Just OK? It Doesnt Have To Be That Way! Live the Life You Really Want To Live!
I have some questions for you. Are you ready? How would your rate your life on a scale from one to ten; 10 being fantastic and 1 being the worst it could possibly be? Are you happy with the most important aspects of your life? And note that I didn't say are you content or are you satisfied. I said are you HAPPY with your life the way it is now? If you are, why are you happy? If you are not, why not? I urge you to be specific when you answer those questions.
Ten Terrific Self Motivating Tips
No one can motivate anyone to do anything. All a person can do for another is provide them with incentives to motivate themselves. Here are ten very effective strategies to help you get up and get moving toward actualizing your enormous, untapped potential.
Motivation-- The Key Is In Your Actions
Have you ever read something like this as a "way to increase motivation"? :
Motivation By Kicking Butt
Some people respond to being yelled at and even sworn at. This brings out that extra bit of effort and they become highly motivated. Others are just angered by the apparent lack of respect shown them and will walk out of whatever training program they are in.
Your Life Story: Whatcha Gonna Do? Write Your Life Story NOW before Its Too Late!
Imagine this scene: Project yourself into the future. You are 87 years old and sitting on the couch in the living room of your house. Sitting around you are your grand children and their children too. The smaller ones and maybe even some of the older ones ask you to tell them a story. They enjoy your stories. And of course you are more than happy to oblige them. Then after all, this is your family! Your offspring! You've told them many stories over the years. This time, however, they want you to tell them a different story. The story they want to hear this time, and everyone seems particularly primed to hear, is the story of your life. They are all waiting eagerly for you to begin.
Perseverance is about as important to achievement as gasoline is to driving a car. Sure, there will be times when you feel like you're spinning your wheels, but you'll always get out of the rut with genuine perseverance. Without it, you won't even be able to start your engine.

What Do You Truly Value Most?
Believe it or not, values are in the core of all of us. These underrated rankings tell more about us than we could ever imagine. Yet, many of us overlook this extremely important portion of our lives.
The Loneliness of Personal Growth
The cream rises to the top. That means that it separates itself from the milk. Perhaps that is what the New Age Movement is really all about. We tell ourselves that it's lonely at the top. Yes, it is. Maybe we have to figure out how to maintain ourselves as cream, but also stay whipped up within the milk? I'm picturing some sort of luscious desert all decadent and wonderful... like hot cocoa with the marshmallows stirred in rather than just floating on top. But then the marshmallow is no longer a unique wonderful treat, it's been broken down into the masses and lost it's integrity. It's a different lesson that comes into play after you've experienced a decent bit of enlightenment and growth.
As many of you know I have a passion for helping people identify their dreams and go after them. What you may not know is that (much to my surprise) I have uncovered a spiritual aspect to my work.

Entrepreneurs: Take Action Over Inspiration Every Time!
"Accept the challenges so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory!" General George S. Patton
Activity Versus Accomplishment
Each and every day, all of us continually search for the extra edge to win at the sport of sales and marketing. One of the most important things that you need to know is that there is a thin line that exists between activity versus accomplishment. Many people feel if they are "active" then they are productive. This is not true! Too often people run around shuffling papers, go back and forth to meetings and are continually on and off their cell phones, but they never accomplish a single task. Consequently, they never obtain their ultimate goal.
