About Robin Morton

I have travelled many roads before settling in Scotland. In the past, I have been the founder of an award-winning health club and a director of a meat processing company but I can assure you there was no connection between the two! I have been an accountant in London, a banker in California and a teacher in Madrid. In 2009 I personally won an international award based on my commitment to my customers.

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

 

dont beat yourself up

In the online business game, it’s easy to become disheartened.

All day you see posts from people who’ve found ‘the secret’ to making gazillions online.

They’ll be telling you how they only have to work an hour a day.

Yet they seem to get so much done.

And here’s you – still broke and struggling.

Still chasing every new ‘bright and shiny object.’

No wonder you beat yourself up!

So here’s a great video from my new best friend Misha Wilson where he shares one important lesson which will transform your business.

It’s called Stay Focused But Stop Beating Yourself Up.

If you haven’t heard of Misha, rest assured he knows what he’s talking about.

He currently makes several million dollars a year easy and he’s not hit thirty yet!

And his marketing resources have helped me have my best year ever (without working half as hard. Yes! It’s true…).

And I don’t beat myself up about not working so hard. Why would I?

Because it doesn’t have to be like that.
The opportunity will be there either way and the choice is up to you – you get to decide!

Keep Smiling!

Don’t Let Presumption Be The Thief Of Opportunity

Presumption Can Be The Thief Of Opportunity

Wow! I’ve been SO busy so far this 2017 – just had my BEST start to the year EVER!

opportunity

 

Presumption can be the thief of opportunity. It’s YOU who gets to decide.

This phrase is an all time classic and it brings to mind the quote from Henry Ford:

‘Whether you think you can, or think you can’t –

you’re right.’

So, if Ford’s quote is such a classic, why would I feel the need to expand on it?

Ah, that’s a good question – I’m glad you asked..!

Well, it’s the photo that gave me the idea.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I live on a wee island off the West Coast of Scotland.

The photo above is of another Scottish island, very much smaller, and a famous landmark.

The rocky outcrop is called Ailsa Craig and if you’ve heard of the Winter Olympic sport of Curling, you might be interested to know that all the curling stones used are made from granite taken from Ailsa Craig.

Now, looking at the picture, imagine if way back in the past you were wondering about the business possibilities over on that great stone lump.
To take advantage of any opportunity, you’d have to get over to it first.

You might look at the view and see the dangerous looking rocks in the way, and therefore presume that you couldn’t possibly do it.
Or, you might look over to the left of the view, and see the gaps in the rocks, and therefore presume you COULD do it!

It’s the same opportunity – nothing has changed, but what has changed is the presumption, and it’s changed everything when it comes to taking advantage of the opportunity.

So you can see where I got the initial motivation for this post but let’s move away from big old granite rocks in the sea, and look at YOUR opportunities.

Actually, to start off with, you might be reading this thinking that you don’t have any opportunities, and that would be wrong, because opportunity is all around us.

opportunityIf you can read this, then you have access to the internet and a level of education that offers you the chance to do amazing things.

So, it could be that it’s not the presumption of your ability to take the opportunity that’s the problem, it’s your presumption about the perceived lack of opportunity itself in the first place!

This concept of presumption is such a key one, it’s the bedrock of self-improvement and personal responsibility, it’s why some call ‘attitude’ one of the 4 magic words beginning with ‘A’!

For this post today though, let’s continue with the idea of looking at what happens when you DO see an opportunity…

You might think you won’t take it because of a number of reasons:

  • you’re not good enough
  • you’ll fail as usual
  • people will laugh at you

Maybe you’ll take on other people’s presumptions about you as real, and let them override your own presumptions about yourself!
(That might sound crazy, but believe me, it’s so common with coaching clients of mine that I think it’s a horribly real factor in people not fulfilling their potential)

As a result, you might take no action, get no results, and the opportunity passes you by.

It’s called ‘Analysis Paralysis…’

OR…

You might presume that you can do it, even if it’s difficult, you might presume that if you’re not good enough you’ll learn and work at it.

opportunityYou might presume that while failure is a possibility, so is success.

You might take another famous quote to heart, that of Thomas Edison, who said that he hadn’t failed, he had just found 10,000 ways that wouldn’t work.

You might presume that if others laugh at you, then that’s their problem, not yours.

If you go down the road of that set of presumptions, you’ll start to take action, you’ll start to move forward and best of all, you’ll start getting results, probably tweaking as you go.

Then not only does opportunity move closer towards you, it becomes a part of you.

opportunity

The gateway of opportunity opens up to you, and as you go through you’ll find things move on the other side.

Habit and momentum kicks in, you find yourself surrounded by people who can help you, and further opportunities come your way.

All because you presumed that ‘you could.’

Sounds exciting? That’s good, because let me tell you IT IS exciting!

Sound too simple? Well, while the concept is simple, I understand that taking it on in real life is not always simple.

I understand that the negative presumptions can be deeply ingrained, built up over many, many years.
And yes, while I fully understand that, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that a presumption is just that, a presumption…

Remember the acronym FEAR?

  • False
  • Expectation
  • Appearing
  • Real

It’s a use of energy to fire up the imagination to project an outcome into the future.
The positive outcome presumption is still no more than a projection of the imagination, there are no guarantees, but if we’re going to presume, why not presume the best?

Why not presume that things will fall our way once we take action?

opportunity

We can’t be absolutely sure of the outcome if we do take action, but that’s true in life all over. What we can be sure of though, is that if we presume the negative to a point where we take no action, the results will be in line with no action, and in the vast majority of cases, that means no results.

So that’s what I mean about the idea of presumption being a thief of opportunity.

It might be language a touch too flowery for Ford’s liking, but I like the emotion it brings because when it comes down to it, it’s our emotions and passions that can push us to let opportunities slip by simply because we choose to presume in the negative.

But it doesn’t have to be like that.
The opportunity will be there either way and as I said right at the start, the choice is up to you – you get to decide!

Keep Smiling!

Have My Free 2017 Calendar

Win With Robin 2017 Calendar

I made a Free 2017 Calendar for you!

 

Hope you’re all having a great weekend! 

But have you started preparing your business for next year yet?

I know, I know!

Of course it’s still only November, but I honestly believe you’ll benefit
from thinking hard about the New Year sooner rather than later.

And each year I find myself doing this earlier and earlier – and guess what – my business has grown every year too!

So what kind of things do you mean Robin?

For example:

* What products do you have planned for next year?

* How many subscribers will you add to your list?

* What’s the SINGLE thing you can do to double your business in 2017?

Start thinking about these questions now.

Because during the holidays, things just get crazy.

If your family is anything like mine –
it’s one family feasting after another.

Stuffing our faces, drinking mulled wine and then suddenly-

New Years Eve is already history and we’re smack bang in the
middle of 2017.

So before the Christmas Craziness sets in –

Take just a few minutes to prioritise your ideas for 2017.

What are your 3 BIG goals for 2017?

Not 10… or 20…

Just 3.

See, one of the biggest reasons people don’t reach their goals

is because they simply make too many.

So instead – focus on just a few meaningful goals that will

make a real dent in your business.

Ok…I have to go. My son wants a bike ride & the sun won’t last forever.

But here are a few more questions to help kick off 2017….

1. What things are you most proud of this year?

Write them ALL down, big or small…

2. What are your 3 BIG goals for 2017?

Make sure they’re specific and measurable.

3. What’s ONE thing you’re going to say “No” to in 2017?

Hint: If you’re saying “yes” to something new – you usually have

to say “no” to something else.

What can you get rid of  to make more time for the important things?

You can download your FREE Win With Robin 2017 Calendar here.

Breaks In Integrity Don’t Matter, Right?

integrity

Small breaks in integrity don’t matter, right? Er, wrong.

Ah integrity..

In my mind, even the word itself sounds good. For me it brings up thoughts of ‘doing the right thing’, which has me nodding my head, thinking how much better everything is when we act that way.

There are various definitions of ‘integrity’ – for me it boils down to treating other people properly. Being considerate to others, allowing them to have their own opinion, to do their own things.

It means talking about them from a position of respect, saying nothing behind someone’s back for example that you wouldn’t say to their face. It means not harming others, or their property, or their rights.

It means working hard at what you do, even when no-one’s watching. If you have an online business, as I do, then someone is ALWAYS watching! And yet so many people act scammy online and have no integrity whatsoever.

I also believe that a key angle when thinking about integrity, is acting with integrity towards ourselves. If we look after our own opinions, our own goals, if we treat ourselves properly, we are acting with integrity.

All sounds great doesn’t it, all well and good! That’s because I think it IS great! When we act with integrity, we not only make the world a better place for ourselves, we make it a better place for others too.

If that’s the case then, why do so many online people act without integrity..?

That’s a good question, and it forms the basis of the point I’m making in this blog post.
We act without integrity when we don’t know any better, when it becomes difficult, when we get lazy and most of all online – when we get greedy..

Sometimes we don’t have the time, or life in general is shoving a load of stress our way. We see ‘overnight success‘ online every day and we feel we should have a piece of that pie too. At those times, thinking with integrity is not quite so easy!

There is no doubt, acting with integrity can be hard! That’s why we slip, that’s why we have those breaks in integrity. The small breaks, they don’t matter though, right?

Er, wrong!

integrity

The small breaks DO matter, for two reasons.

Firstly, it sometimes only needs a small break in integrity to have a big impact, either on ourselves or on others.

The wrong words at the wrong time, the wrong action at the wrong time – the power of these is not to be dismissed. It can take a long time to put right the damage that can be caused by these small breaks.

Online your reputation can be destroyed in minutes if your audience lose trust in you. Trust is a precious commodity and without it you’ll never prosper for long online.

The second reason that the small breaks matter, is that they are the little cracks in the dam. If we get used to the little breaks being acceptable, then the little breaks become the norm, so we can add new little breaks to them.

It doesn’t take too long before the breaks come together, and the whole dam of integrity collapses, and we just do away with the whole idea.

That’s not good, to put it mildly. When we do away with integrity altogether, the world becomes a worse place, a worse place for ourselves, and a worse place for those around us, and it’s fatal for our online ventures!

But I have the solution!

You’ll know by now that I choose to take the positive way of looking at life, so here’s what I think we should do about the small breaks in integrity…

In an ideal world, we shouldn’t have any breaks in integrity at all, but I know that none of us live in cloud cuckoo land, so we have to accept that breaks in integrity could happen.

The first way to deal with it, is to simply accept that fact, that the breaks will happen. The good side of the breaks happening, is that we see them as breaks, because that means that the break in integrity is not the norm, it’s integrity that’s the norm!

Once we accept that, we can then deal with it by getting annoyed with ourselves! I get really annoyed with myself if I think I’ve acted without integrity, either towards myself or others. I can find it quite upsetting.

However, I use that annoyance and frustration with myself to close the break! If we take responsibility for our thoughts and actions, we can decide to not accept the integrity break as the norm, but to decide to do our very best to not let it happen again.

That involves work, because it means we have to analyse what happened, and prepare ourselves to act differently next time. It can be an effort, but of course, to put in that effort is, in itself, to act with integrity!

I find this whole idea a key business and lifestyle issue. It may sound cheesy to talk about acting with integrity. But luckily I’m not alone in thinking like this.

My good friend, coach and mentor Rebecca Bardess has recently launched her Indiepreneur Academy which is founded on the principles of integrity and ethics.

But don’t be fooled in thinking that this way of thinking will mean you lose out in terms of success or money in the bank. Quite the opposite!

So now you can be part of making the internet a better place. You can be part of the conversation.

Just yesterday she released an epic training on ethics which you can access for FREE.

And once you realise that integrity and ethics are not just SEXY but CRUCIAL from 2017 onwards for your online business you’ll see the VALUE in her amazing Home Business Authority Blueprint course.

No BS Internet Marketing Training- Finally!

At Last! Honest Advice Replaces BS With Integrity And Wisdom.

 

BSThis is a business based blog and obviously I want to help you make more money.

I’m here to help, advise and support you in making the right choices for your home business.
But that’s only a part of it.
I actually care about you.

Wow! There. I said it.

It’s true though. I am a firm believer in the power of ‘attraction marketing‘ and I know from experience that if I treat you well then you’re more likely to stick with me and so we’ll both benefit from the arrangement.

There’s so much BS out there at the moment.

If you follow my advice or read my words then I want to tell you that it’s okay to have honest emotions and yet still be successful.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do business. You’ve all seen the hype-y over-the-top spammy marketing lately across the web. It turns me off. And I know from talking to clients that I’m not alone in feeling like this.

But there is a better way.

You know that I’m a coach. Well I also have a coach. Her name is Rebecca Bardess.

Rebecca Bardess is the real deal and she has been at the top of her game since the 90’s unlike many of the so-called ‘guru’ types who’ve come and gone a hundred times over. Google her name and you’ll see what I mean.

So if you’ve always wanted to get better at online business but have been put off by the BS and hype then her brand new Indiepreneur Academy might be the right fit for you.

Now I appreciate that top-level coaching might not be within your reach right now but that’s what makes this all the more exciting.

Her Home Business Authority Blueprint course is now live for a tiny fraction of her coaching fees. And it’s only a small taste of the no BS training she has got planned for this BRAND NEW venture.

It’s LIVE TODAY so move fast – pop over and pick up some free training at the very least!

Life Isn’t Always Rainbows and Unicorns

Life Isn’t Always Rainbows and Unicorns

 

rainbows and unicorns

Life isn’t always rainbows and unicorns so when it is, savour the moment!

 

The photo showing the colour spectrum brought the phrase to mind after I was talking with a good marketing friend who’d just had some particularly undeserved bad luck.

It’s a phrase I think is relevant for times when people use it to dismiss the concepts of self-improvement and personal development.

People often dismiss those concepts as ‘airy fairy,’ ‘happy clappy’ or ‘wishy washy,’ when they don’t work out so good in real life – dismissed with the ‘evidence’ that real life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns.

Now, I can see why the ‘happy clappy’ image of the industry can put people off – you know the sort of thing – you’ll probably be picturing a presenter on stage, shouting wildly at the audience, probably getting them to hug 5 strangers around them.

Not everyone likes that kind of approach, and as it happens I’m not a massive fan of it personally.
But I can see how it breaks down some mental barriers and relaxes some people though.

Then the ‘wishy washy’ dismissal comes with the idea of ‘visualisation’ and ‘law of attraction‘.

People can view those concepts as something that ‘hippies’ do, spending their time bringing what they want into their lives simply by imagining it!

Hmm…

If that’s the attitude someone has of the field of personal development, it’s not surprising that it’s mentally put away in the ‘airy fairy nonsense’ box in the brain, categorised as not relevant to the day to day necessities of going out to earn a living.

Well, that’s why I say life really isn’t always rainbows and unicorns…!

When a tap floods your bathroom and the ceiling collapses, when a tyre on the car goes flat, when a train or plane is delayed, when someone is horrible to you for no reason – things like that happen in life.

No-one in the self-improvement field is saying they don’t!

What they ARE saying though, and obviously I’m saying it now, is that although unpleasant things will happen in life, so will the good stuff!

The hardships can be dealt with, and the good stuff can be enjoyed.
Dealing with the hardships can be made easier by the attitude we take into them, and this can be as simple as just accepting that ‘life’ happens – it will not be, and cannot be, perfect all the time.

The good stuff, therefore, must also be accepted and enjoyed in a similar way, they are two sides of the same coin.

There’s an important point to take further here – the balance can be tipped towards the good stuff.
Eliminating all the bad stuff cannot be done, and it’s foolish to try, but a lot of it CAN be eliminated.

If it’s a sudden unexpected nuisance then there might not be much we can do, but if it’s an ongoing, long term annoyance, then it’s possible you can do something about it.

What would you prefer instead? What have others done to achieve that alternative? What are YOU going to do about it?

And when it comes to earning a living, this can be decades of drudgery for a lot of people, but why?
Why does it have to be that way?

There is so much opportunity in the world today, and if you’re able to read this article, that opportunity is all around you right now.

 

It may involve hard work, in fact you can EXPECT it to be hard work, but that’s par for the course, and dealing with that is part of the attitude shift that might be needed.

So, in your life, what would you consider to be YOUR rainbows and unicorns?

Do you make enough room in your life to fully enjoy and appreciate them?

Do you allow yourself to enjoy them?

The hardships will come along, and the hardships will go, just as the good times will, so when it’s good, savour the moment!

Get Round The Corner THEN Find Out!

get round the corner

Worried About What’s Round The Corner?

The picture is of a lovely tree tunnel, and when I was thinking about writing an article about ‘what might be round the corner,’ it just seemed to fit!

When I talk with clients, there are many fears that stop them moving forwards, and the fear of change is right up there on the list!

Change is inevitable if we set out on the path of self improvement, personal development and goal achievement. That may seem obvious but it’s worth stating. Because in order for our results to change, our actions have to change, and in order for actions to change, attitude has to change.

That’s a lot of change, and it scares the living daylights out of a lot of people!

It’s so scary, because the changes will move life away from the present circumstances which we are used to, towards a life which we cannot predict. Yes, we can make educated guesses, and we may be fairly hopeful about some of the changes, but it could be argued that we can’t be *sure*.

And of course, some personal development or goal achievement moves will involve changes that might be real leaps in the dark, that we genuinely don’t know what will happen.

It might be a change in our circle of friends, or how family views us. It might mean a job change, or change in living arrangements. It might mean moving to a completely new area, or another country!

More likely it will involve a change in lifestyle habits, or a change from the safety net of a regular pay check to the heady and uncertain world of self-employment.

It could be it’s the change in ‘ourselves’ that the progress would bring that scares us the most.

So, having covered all the possible changes, and accepting that the unknown can be scary, it’s no surprise that it stops people moving forwards at all, right?

Well, no, it’s no surprise, but often it’s also used as an *excuse*, and it doesn’t have to be that way.

round the corner embrace the change

I have several ways of helping clients deal with the fear of change, and here’s something else that isn’t a surprise, I’ve going to cover 2 of them here today..!

Firstly, since fear of possible change is just that, fear of ‘possible‘ change, it might be helped by simply looking at it in a different way – that it might not be as bad as you think!

If we think back to how many times in our life we have said:

‘Oh, that wasn’t nearly as bad I thought it would be,’

it will be a LOT of times!

You’ve maybe seen the FEAR acronym before?

  • F = False
  • E = Expectations
  • A = Appearing
  • R = Real

Fears over the future simply turn out to be not as bad as we thought, more often than not. I’m not saying there will never be changes that we don’t like, but we just don’t need to let the fear of it hold us back.

It’s misplaced energy, and it’s wasted energy.

The second way I like to view the fear of change is to view it as an opportunity of change instead!

round the corner of opportunity

Remember, the particular fears I’m talking about come about when we look at personal development, improving our situation and setting goals. The whole point of us going through that process is to bring our lives more back in line with our passions, our joys, our soul.

If that’s the case, then the changes around the corner should be looked forward to rather than feared, because it means we are on the road to the more fulfilling life for ourselves – and so yes, it will be a change, but it will be a GOOD change!

And that way, we can take the attitude of ‘oh, I wonder what it will look like?’ with excitement rather than trepidation, because if we are directing the change, and we find we don’t like it, we can change it again!

That’s the key – if we let fear of change keep us stuck where we are, then we will still get buffeted by the circumstances that life has a habit of throwing at everyone. That’s just the way it is, and sometimes it’s not always pleasant. So instead of that, WHY NOT choose to be in control, to set changes in progress that WE WANT, that we have decided on and acted towards.

It’s a much better way to look at it, in my view.

So, look to your own path in life, whether tree-lined or not, then decide that whatever happens the journey along the way can be soaked up and enjoyed. Then if you’re worried because you’re not sure what’s around the corner – it might not be anywhere near as bad as you think. I’ve said it before, and I’ll finish by saying it again, get round there and find out!

Self Doubt Is Normal But Can Be Destructive

Self Doubt Is Normal, But Can Be Destructive

Ditch Self Doubt and Believe

As a Success Coach, I would say that self doubt is one of the most common problems faced by my clients when they first come to me.

Even the most confident person you can think of has more than an occasional bout of self doubt. The trick is to accept it for what it is but then get on with the business of being successful.

That’s how most successful entrepreneurs beat the scourge of self doubt.Consistent self doubt is as crippling as clinical depression and you may soon find yourself in a paralysing rut that’s difficult to extract yourself from.

As a rookie – or even a seasoned entrepreneur, you have a lot riding on your ability to stay focused. Your ultimate level of success and satisfaction with your chosen career depends on it.

It’s imperative that you develop the resilience to overcome self doubt you’re sure to experience and replace that negativity with other thoughts designed to build your confidence rather than bringing you down.

self doubt - don't give in to it

Self doubt can cause indecision and procrastination – both lethal detriments to your ultimate success. Yet, every challenge you face in your quest as an online entrepreneur brings with it recurrent doubts from the depths of your subconscious that may prevent you from overcoming the challenges and achieving your goals unless you can get a grip on them and see them for what they are – lies.

The higher you climb on the ladder of success, the more self doubt you’re likely to have.

So, what can you do to alleviate some of these obstacles and direct your energy in a more productive manner?

It begins in your mind and progresses to taking action as you learn you really are capable of facing and overcoming any challenges that come your way.

Firstly, you should know and be comforted that you’re not the only person (successful or not) who has suffered from self doubt along the way.

Acknowledging that others have felt as you do and gone on to become successful in spite of self doubt can alleviate your worries and help you get past the feelings more quickly. If you haven’t already set some personal and business goals for yourself, do it immediately.

It’s part of the plan that you’ll use as your map to the magic kingdom of success. It’s perfectly okay to set lofty, long-term goals. Just make sure you set attainable, short-term goals, too – so you can experience success in small increments along the way.

Short term goals are especially important because they provide continuous realisation that you are moving along quite nicely and are well on your way to meeting those long term goals. It lets you bask in the sunshine of the smaller wins, while waiting for the big payoff at the end.

Use the principle of S.M.A.R.T. goal setting;

Strategic – Measurable – Achievable – Realistic – Time Based

Some things will happen along the road to success which are beyond your control. It’s important that you accept this and avoid blaming yourself. In all of our lives, a little rain must fall. Be prepared in every way you can and press onward to your goals.
