To be a Champion, you must first become a Learner !

To Be A Champion - You Must First Become A Learner!


Sit down relax and ask yourself a question that what do successful have that makes them successful? Ever wonder how those champion
achievers in your company,school
manage, month after month, to
get the most new business, the
biggest bonuses, the largest
paychecks?

Well let me tell you a secret. No one starts out as a Champion but like an ordinary person. Most of them started out like you and me. So what is it that makes a Champion different from the rest people?
Champions have an attitude, a mindset that sets them apart from the rest. But most of these qualities are not exceptional.
Indeed each and every one of us possesses these qualities when we start out in life. But somewhere along the way we tend to lose them
and diminish our own potential.

To be a Champion, you must first become a Learner ! Let me throw more light into it:

1. Champions are Willing to Learn.
Just like children come into this world with an innate desire to learn, to understand the world around
them. They're like sponges observing and absorbing every fact, every reaction. Because they know that their very survival depends on
it. One of the most important qualities we need to succeed in business is a willingness to learn - to be teachable.
To become a champion, you must be willing to educate yourself or be educated, to read about, learn and absorb all the things you need to
know, even if they are completely new to you. If you don't, you're doomed to fail from the
start. If your not informed,you will be deformed.

2. Champions are Willing to Act.
Have you notice how children completely geared towards action? As soon as they learn a new
skill, they want to put it into action.
Just the way they practice things they see in movies. Champions are the same. They put their newly
learned skills to use, taking concrete steps to improve their performance, so they can take their business to the next level.
They know that they must act on what they have learned, even if they haven't perfected it.

3. Champions are Not Afraid to Fail.Just as a child picks itself up again and again, every time he/she falls while taking its first steps,
champions are not afraid to fall down or fail. The problem lies when he cant stand up.
They know that failure is the best teacher. They learn from their mistakes and keep fine-tuning
their methods till they succeed.
Champions have the courage to fall down and not be discouraged. They pick themselves up and keep trying.
They never quit.

4. Champions are Willing to Adapt
Darwin got it wrong. Survival does not happen to the Fittest, but to the Most Adaptable. As children, we adapt to long-term change
relatively easily. We are more willing to accept situations and adapt our behavior accordingly.
Unfortunately, as we grow older, we become more rigid in our thinking, unwilling to accept that there may be better ways of doing things.
In a changing business scenario, resistance to change makes us obsolete. We end up losing
out to players with a better understanding of changing trends.
Champions are those who can adapt
themselves and their business to changing trends.

5. Champions are Willing to Innovate
Children are extremely inventive beings. They come into this world with no preconceived notions of doing things. In their minds there are
no limits to what they can do or how they can do it.
Champions apply these very principles to take their business to the top. They not only learn from what has been done before. They find ways of doing it more
efficiently, more cheaply, more successfully. You don't have to be like a child in all respects
to succeed. It's probably not even desirable. But if your pre-conceived notions, fears and hesitation are preventing you from reaching
your goals, try looking at the world through a child's eyes. Be determined to have success. Hope you will change your negative mindset now and do what champions do to obtain the trophy. Think positive.

Turn Your Free Time into a Business Opportunity.

Turn Your Free time Into a
A Business Opportunity.

Nowadays, global trends suggest
that there is a noticeable rise in
the number of women setting up
small creative businesses. They
usually earn extra income from
their entrepreneurial activity on the side, until they are confident enough that it can become their sole occupation. Creative Entrepreneurship Online
Creative entrepreneurship is also preferred by mothers who want to choose the time and
conditions under which they will be working in order to still be able to look after their families.

Their success may spur you to create your own business to supplement your earnings by doing
something you really enjoy doing. From cooking to web design, from writing to knitting, the possibilities are virtually endless. Freelance

With the help of the Internet, you can promote your business worldwide and reach a vast clientele; or target local customers if you feel
that there will be great demand for your product in the particular area in which you are based.
Making the Right Moves When Starting Out,Above all, you should select to specialize in an area that really suits you. Only if you have the
firm willingness to evolve in your creative domain will you develop a base of loyal clientele that will appreciate your work. Naturally, you
need to make your creative business stand out.

One of the first things to consider is to find the perfect name for your business. The online market is now saturated with dot.com
companies. So you'd better find something different that will rings a bell for your customers, depending on the product or service offered; if
you are selling cosmetics for example, you can create a domain name for it,may be like. Org,.biz, .info etc, just remember that hyphens and
numbers should be avoided, as they make it difficult for customers to spot you and even remember the site name.

Then, you should design your website with the intention of
making the usefulness of your products as plain as day.
Growing a Full-Fledged Business
After some time, you may feel ready to make this your full-time occupation. You may consider this quite risky. Yet, sometimes, and
especially when the indications are positive, it is worth taking risks. In various inspiring publicized stories, other successful creative
women relate how their road to success was beset with obstacles; their cases often prove you that you can overcome hurdles even more
formidable than the ones you encounter by using your resourcefulness.

Practical thinking is of vital importance; whenever possible, save
some money; restructure your budget; and develop a back-up plan.
No one can guarantee success. It is only through persistent work and genuine commitment that you can eventually establish yourself as an entrepreneur. Even if you make it,
it will be difficult to maintain a thriving business in the long run; besides, unforeseen circumstances may force you to go back to
square one. Think Positive.

Serious Mistakes To Avoid When Starting Your Own Business.

Serious Mistakes To Avoid When Starting Your Own Business.

Everybody have the dream becoming their own business ,by setting up a profitable small business and grow it big. A business allows you to become your own boss. While this is the case, many people tend to make many mistakes when starting their businesses. Are you planning of starting a
business? Before you do, avoid making these mistakes if you don't want crash land. Here are some of the mistakes that you should avoid:

Not Doing Enough Research.

Before you start any business you should do your research gather enough information and find out if there is market for your product or service. If you don't have the
research skills you should consider hiring a research firm to help you with it. During your research, you should identify your customers
and how their money spending habits. Ignoring Your Competition
Unless you are coming up with a completely new product or service, you will definitely have some competition. To be successful you should keep a close eye on your competitors and see what they are doing. To be a step ahead, you
should take advantage of their weaknesses and offer better services or products.


Failing To Market The Product/ Service

Many small businesses believe that they only need to open a store and customers will flow in, this is a white lie. For you to have customers you need to market your business.
This calls for you to create a marketing plan that will give you direction. You also need to set up a marketing campaign. Business experts recommend that you should
market your business before you even open it. Once you have identified your customers you
should visit them and talk to them about the store that you are planning to open soon.


Doing It Alone

While you are an entrepreneur and very independent, you shouldn't try to run your business alone-you should surround yourself with the people who will provide you with
support and advice. These people can be accomplished businessmen or close and supportive family members that will guild and give you insight. Although, you might be having limited resources, it's wise sometimes to hire people to do the work that may take you many hours of your time. For example, if you find it hard to do bookkeeping you should consider hiring a bookkeeper to do the work for you. This way you will grow faster as you will be
concentrating at the things that are of great importance to the success of your business.

These are the pot-holes that you need to avoid when starting your business. For faster growth
of your business it's always wise that you have a mentor with you.
If you can work those mistakes,you will achieve success when you kick start your own business. Think positive.

Let Your Life Be a landmark For Success

Let Your Life Be a landmark For Success.

What is dream? Goal? Vision?What will you be remembered for in this world? In your community and family? Did you ever think that you are not playing the role which you
should play in your life?
Don't you think that you are born
to play a leading role, a much
bigger role in the real drama of your life? What is holding you back then from playing a vital role in life? Is it your own short sightedness!
Well, in order to play a bigger role in life you need to visualize a bigger picture of yourself. Once you
have that picture in front of you, it will be much easier for you to paint that picture into reality.

I have developed the habit of looking the mirror every morning and say "I have to play a bigger role in life". These simple words make my day, a wonderful day, every day,
because i am determined to play a bigger role in life, keeps my mind in supreme working condition, fully prepared for playing a bigger and bigger, and much bigger role in life and this have helped me build my mind set to overcoming other life obstacle that may come my way . No surprise, my every day is getting better than yesterdays.

Every night, before going to bed, I visualize that tomorrow is going to be better than today. And it happens! Yes, it happens!! While your body muscles need some kind of
daily physical exercise, your brain tissues also need some dose of daily inspirational exercise to motivate it. It is, therefore, important to keep yourself motivated all the time.

You need to clearly define, preferably in writing, every single detail of your big dreams and ambitious goals. You must try to bring out a bigger YOU out of your own small you so that you van be able to reach those big goals. Never think of living an ordinary person's life! It's not your way of life. Let me remind again that you are born to play a leading role, a much bigger role in the real drama of your life. Your confidence in yourself to reach your goals with strong determination to set new records of
excellence, are your biggest assets. You are not far from playing a bigger role in life! Let your life reflect success for others.....your legacy is your life,let your live be a great LANDMARK.

7 Ways to re-position your Website

7 Ways to re-position your
Website


Is your business slightly slower
than usual. But it's always a
good time to take stock of what's
working for you, and what needs
some attention - including your
Web site! Here are my suggestions for a great tune-up audit - take a fresh look at your site and your
promotional strategy with these pointers:

1. Is your site appealing to all your markets? Do you have different potential buyers for different aspects of your products and services? Is there content on your site that's
designed for each of these? Have you considered whether your Web audience might be different from your traditional markets, and if
so, whether you can exploit that?

2. Does your content engage your visitors? Your site should be written from your visitors' point of view, not yours. Does your home page
clearly recognize why the reader might be there- what's in it for them, and why they should care? What are the problems or issues that
they might have, and how will you solve them?

3. Can you make your case?
If you claim that your products or services achieve results, do you have clear content on your site that substantiates this? Do you have
case studies, sample client lists, and
testimonials from happy customers? Third party endorsements are worth far more than your own promotional text, and they should be spread throughout your site, not relegated to a separate page that few visitors will go to.

4. Do you position yourself as an expert? One of the most effective ways to get exposure is to publish articles, and white papers around
your area of expertise. Even if you sell widgets, you can help people get the most out of using them! Articles on your site will be picked up by
the search engines, and you can also offer them to publications that your target markets read - always with a link back, or reference to your
site, of course.

5. Do you ask for the business?
Whatever the outcomes that you want from your site, you need to ask for it. Too many Web pages end weakly, with no clear calls to
action. Don't make your visitors have to work to decide what to do next - they won't! Every page on your site should have a strategy -
invite the visitor to interact with you, or go to the next page, but make it easy and obvious.

6. Do you have a diversified promotional strategy? Don't depend on free search engines to get you
traffic. Are you exploring other ways of promoting your site - such as using your content and articles, advertising in e-zines,
appending a signature file to your e-mail, regularly sending updates to your database, and ensuring that your traditional marketing is
integrated with your online activities?

7. Are you reviewing your traffic analysis? Last, but really key - your Website traffic reports will tell you what's working and what
isn't. Without this information, you're really shooting in the dark - what if you were to find that the majority of your hard-earned visitors
never go beyond your home page?
This isn't an exhaustive list, but it's a good start. I hope that your Web site passes the test!

The Price of Resentment and Anger in Marriage

The Price of Resentment and
Anger in Marriage

Its no longer hidden or news that many spouses carry heavy
Big size Ghana-must-bag filled with a collection of anger and resentment from their relationship and marriage. Periodically, they unpack these bag and review every situation in which they feel they were treated unfairly.
"Resentment is an extremely bitter diet, and eventually poisonous. I have no desire to make my own toxins," says Neil Kinnock. Hanging
on to anger and resentment is toxic, and the resulting sludge can slowly poison you. It's easy to lose your perspective about the bigger picture and to be become obsessed with
how things "should" have been and how others "should" have treated you. In your mind, you may visualize yourself zapping the other person
with the perfect verbal comeback or having the opportunity to get even in some way. The more you let your mind gallop in this direction, the
angrier you get and the more you feel self-righteous and justified in your reaction.

When you become mired in anger, resentment,blame, and revenge, you are only hurting yourself. In the process, you put yourself at risk
for experiencing health problems, sleeping difficulties, depression, relationship rifts, and daily agitation. You automatically increase your
stress level and decrease your enjoyment of life. And the longer you carry a grudge, the heavier it gets.
Nothing you do to try to find inner peace will be effective when you are filled with anger and resentment. "If we have not peace within ourselves, it is in vain to seek it from outward
sources," states Francois de La Rochefoucauld.

As long as you hold on to bitter feelings, you are sabotaging yourself by destroying any chance that you can experience peace of mind.
Dr. Wayne Dyer, in "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace," states: "It's your ego that demands that the world and all the people in it
be as you think they should be." He continues by saying, "It is perhaps the most healing thing that you can do to remove the low energies of
resentment and revenge from your life completely." Dr. Dyer compares resentment to venom that continues to circulate in your system long after the snakebite has occurred.
He emphasizes that it's not the bite that kills you; it's the venom.

What, then, is the antidote? How can you find peace of mind? How can you handle your feelings of anger and resentment from the
experiences in your marriage? How can you create a peaceful marriage now? The answer lies in letting go of resentment and practicing forgiveness. You can't change what
has happened, and you can't control what your spouse chooses to do. But you do have control over the choices you make.

You can choose to cut the emotional bond that is keeping you tied to your anger and resentment. Instead, you can decide to experience the joy of freedom from the heavy
burdens you have been carrying around for so long. To get the help you need in letting go of
the past, you always have the option of asking a therapist or minister to assist you. Thomas Fuller observes, "He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven." Without forgiveness, your life becomes an endless cycle of anger, resentment,
and retaliation. You practice forgiveness so that you can stop
ruminating about the past and put your energy into the present moment. And you practice
forgiveness so that you will be free from the poisonous effects of resentment.

Then, you can experience peace of mind and bring that inner peacefulness into your marriage. You will never have a peaceful
marriage until you are at peace within yourself. Remember no one is perfect but only God.
