Baby Born Pregnant! True Story…

Baby Born PREGNANT! That’s A Shocking Headline, Right?

 

And the most shocking thing of all is that it’s completely true.

The headline, that is…

NOT the subject matter.

A baby can’t be born pregnant, that would just be plain weird!

But I bet it grabbed your attention?

It did the same for me when I saw it, way back on my very first trip to the United States back in the ’80’s as a youth.

Back then, I’d never seen a ‘National Enquirer’ newspaper. And of course I use the term ‘news’ paper loosely.

In Scotland we didn’t have any stuff like that in those days. No 200 channels of TV, no infomercials, MTV or McDonald’s burger outlets. Happy days…!

And of course I knew nothing about marketing then either.

There I was, standing in the checkout queue of Walmart at 3 am, revelling in this new-found freedom – back home in many parts of Scotland, stores didn’t even open during the DAY on a Sunday, never mind all through the night!

So when I saw the front-page headline, ‘Baby Born Pregnant!’ did I buy the paper?

You betcha, I did!

And of course, the story was complete nonsense. But I still read the entire paper from cover to cover and I can remember doing so thirty years later.

I now know that the Enquirer is one of the most widely read newspapers in the world.

And that they always place them in the checkout aisle of supermarkets. We even have them here in Scotland now. Yippee…

And I totally understand and respect their marketing strategy. And so should you.

They know that in the checkout, we only have a few seconds to make our buying decision. So they offer us a very short two to three word headline. The sort of headline that would stop a rhino in it’s tracks.

What they’re doing is interrupting our brain patterns and making us take notice.

Your job as an online entrepreneur is almost the same thing.

You’ve got to engage with someone who is busy scrolling down their Facebook feed, checking their emails and SMS messages.

You need to interrupt these potential customers just long enough for them to click on your advert or post and go visit your website.

You can learn exactly how to use this strategy and then build a proven sales funnel around it when you join my happy band of expert marketers HERE.

But, as a quick tip and to provide value to you for reading this far, I can recommend that you just Google “National Enquirer Headlines” and you’ll see dozens of excellent examples. They truly are masters of Interruption Marketing.

That’s it! pregnant

 

Enjoy your weekend when it comes!

Forget The Past – Your Success Lies In The Here And Now!

“If you’re in the room, be in the room…”

I’m ALWAYS saying this to clients and customers.

But I know exactly what you’re thinking right now –

“Rob, that’s the most inane thing I’ve heard all day! If I am in the room, then of course I’m already there!”

If it were only that simple!

If you’re not ‘in the room’ you are not in the game. Fact.

I don’t mean physically.

I mean being mentally in the room – exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Where you need to be – and focused 100% completely in that moment so that you can make it really count.past

 

But it’s a lot harder than just concentrating a wee bit more…

 

 

Most of us do not concentrate on the moment and so we never make the most of every opportunity.

Why is this? Because we are only human after all.

We either live permanently in the past or we worry way too much about the future and what could go wrong.

We are literally staggering under the weight of the baggage we carry around with us and nothing is more likely to get in the way of our success.

Someone was telling me earlier that she had actually heard herself talking back to her own self out loud that morning and she’d been shocked at how negative she had sounded.

This is a classic problem.

Most of us do it from time to time.

But we ALL have a permanent internal dialogue inside our heads which controls virtually every action that we take. Or don’t take…

Obviously, our experiences have to shape our lives and as such we are constantly learning as we get older. With age comes wisdom, right?

But, my lesson for you today is this – 

There are actually 3 voices battling for control inside your head:

➡ the Commentator, the Coach and the Player.

Your job is to become a successful player which means you have to re-learn how to listen!

Your internal Commentator can only comment on stuff that has happened. Sports commentators can’t talk about a game that hasn’t happened yet. Their voice is always the voice of your past.

“Don’t try that, you might fail and people will laugh at you just like last time!”

Inside our heads, we’re just like big kids, scared of rejection and failure.

The internal Commentator keeps us there, out of the room and right in the middle of our comfort zone.

Then there’s the Coach. They will find a way to steer you through to a way of achieving your goals, never mind what happened last time.

The Coach will take you outside your comfort zone.

The Coach in your head would say “Try that again, you’ve learned since last time and anyways, no-one will laugh at you so go on and do it.”

And so where are you?

Are you in the middle of a situation but not really ‘there’ as a Player?

Are you hiding behind the problems of the past and listening only to your Commentator? The Commentator can NEVER help you move forward.

You have to learn to stop listening to the negativity and instead encourage the Coach inside of you.

past

 

The Coach will put you ‘in the room’ whereas the Commentator keeps you standing at the door, safe but unchanged.

 

 

Think about where you spend most of your time; past, present or future.

Food for thought, this weekend…

Go out there and give it everything you’ve got! What are you saving yourself for?

And remember the 2 most important things from this post — 

  1. The past is a place of reference not a place of residence
  2. When you’re in a situation, forget about the future.

The ONLY place you can be is here and now and you have to make the most of every minute of the day!

➡ Here’s how I put the past behind me and built my successful future!

 

That’s it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Keep Smiling!

Shock Horror! US Government Loses $1.2 Trillion

government

By now you are probably used to the fact that I often advise you about things that may have a potentially negative impact on your wealth, or more often news about  potential opportunities to consider.

Some of the bad news I report can be alarming, but rarely do I report “alarmist” news.

There’s a huge difference between the two.

And so, some of what I’m about to tell you this weekend may be dismissed by some folks as being alarmist.

But it’s not, and that’s what makes it even more scary.

In fact, you don’t have to take my word for it. You can check the source for yourself in the US Government Report of 2017: 2017 Financial Report of the U.S. Government

What you will find in the report is a disturbing set of figures that have no need for rhetorical enhancement.

In other words, the figures alone speak for themselves; and what they say is nothing short of terrifying. I was an accountant for many years and I’m used to looking at company accounts, so I’ll break them down for you.

Government

In a nutshell, here’s the main gist:

For 2017, the US Government reported a NET LOSS OF -$1.2 TRILLION

Just have a wee think about this figure for a moment. How much money do you have to lose, in order to have a net loss of $1.2 Trillion in one year?

You would have to lose:

  • • -$3.2 Billion per day…
  • • -$136.9 Million per hour…
  • • -$2.2 Million per second…
  • • -$2,283 per millisecond.

Can you even imagine losing over $2,000 each “thousandths of a second”?

It’s mind-boggling. Yet such this mind-boggling feat is what the US Government has managed to accomplish.

The US Government is haemorrhaging money.

And it makes me wonder how long we can sustain this rate of loss. Many other Western countries have similar problems but on a much smaller scale. Government

It might help you grasp this problem if I put things into perspective:

$1.2 Trillion is almost the size of Spain’s entire economy, and larger than Australia’s and Mexico’s economies (respectively) according to the World Bank’s estimates of 2016 GDP.

Here’s another thing to consider: how many major economic disasters or events took place in 2017?

None

In other words, in 2017, which was a “good” year by all standards, the US government still managed to lose $1.2 Trillion.

It’s a good thing that there were no major negative events–financial disasters on a global scale, no major recessions, no large-scale military conflicts.

It makes you wonder, how much might they lose during a not-so-good year?

Now, this net loss might not be so bad if the economy was growing as compared with 2016?

To answer this question, have a look at page 55 of the report. It lays out the US government’s calculations of net assets and liabilities.

Where they add the value of every single thing they own.

Then they subtract this net asset figure from their long-term liabilities.

You’ll see in the report that the US government’s net worth is a NEGATIVE $20.4 Trillion. Compare this to the 2016 figure of NEGATIVE $19.3 Trillion.

How does it compare? The government’s net worth declined by 5.6% over the course of 2017.

The figures clearly show that the US has far more liabilities than assets.

Are you are retiree? If so, check out the section in which they calculate the long-term implications of Social Security and Medicare.

Once you get a chance to look at these figures, ask yourself this:

  • are these those programs sustainable?
  • is there not a strong chance they are running out of money?

Many of the more complacent citizens of the Western world feel that somehow it’s okay for governments to operate in this manner.

Yet when it comes to judging the merits of a business, or conducting one’s own financial habits, such a negative performance would not be considered acceptable.

If it was you or I, we’d be declared bankrupt.Government

The figures speak for themselves, they’re there for you to ruminate upon, and they are alarming.

But, in the end, what really matters most is what these figures and their long-term economic implications mean for YOU and your own wealth.

 

People are talking about another recession looming.

And should a negative long-term outlook appear on the horizon, perhaps it’s time to consider protecting your financial future.

There’s never been a better time to start your own ‘Plan B.’

Government

 

For some it might be an online business. I certainly would if I was you.

 

 

Government

 

For others, it might mean regular saving into a non-paper money safe yet accessible harbour, like ultra reliable, dependable Gold.

Thankfully, I also do this. You should too.

 

Food for thought this weekend…

Keep Smiling!
