Key To Success

What do you do when you come across a key to success in a book you're reading? You ponder over it. Since I read many books and come across many keys, I thought it would be fun to share the ideas that arise as I contemplate a key to success. Reading is not just about absorbing information, it's also about contemplating, allowing the ideas to blossom within, and nurturing a seed tossed in the rich soil of the inner garden.

I got my Master's degree in psychotherapy more than a decade ago. Since then I've studied the human condition with fascination. Over the years, I've learned a singular lesson: your life does not work when you oppose your soul nature. If you want a magical life, you have to drop your inauthentic transactions with the world. You discover your own power when you spend time alone to figure out what you really love to do.

Creativity, Fun, and Originality In Internet Marketing?

Sometimes it seems to me that everyone on the internet is busy copying everyone else.

This is not entirely a bad thing, but this perspective can also be limiting.

Allow me to explain how creativity, fun, and originality can spice up your internet marketing.

While I certainly understand the concept of modeling, using the tried-and-true experience of someone else to cut corners, save time and money, and be on your way to depositing serious amounts of money into your bank account, I also wonder if this is entirely a significant and worthwhile maneuver.

You see, there is no one quite like you.

You are utterly unique.

And while I’m not going so far as to recommend that you cleave entirely to fresh origination, I think that something worthwhile may come of letting your brain experiment with an original thesis.

Economically, things could go either way.

Your original rendition of an old theme or your creation of something entirely new may or may not make an impact on your end-of-day receipts.

However, from the perspective of personal satisfaction, there is a delight to creating a product that no-one else has made, proposing an idea that has never been pitched before, or stepping on a creative landmine in the middle of the night that keeps you on high alert for the rest of the nocturnal hours.

There is something entirely unique about you, and when you roll it out, find it meets with an unexpected public frenzy because it offers an unprecedented solution, your feeling of personal satisfaction and achievement surpasses anything that you may earn.

Of course, however, it’s always wonderful to win a complete coup—and have your brilliance rewarded with numbers ending with numerous zeros—but that thrill is secondary to having the opportunity to be dazzling.

Perhaps a compromise is possible—between the bread-and-butter affiliate and resale right products and the methodology espoused by your adopted guru—and your own occasional creative flair.

This way, you are assured of an income, and yet also have the freedom to play with an idea birthing in your brain alone, waiting to grow up enough to pull on its pants and go out there and do unbelievable electronic back flips to an amazed world.

Every unique idea in your brain needs to be treated with the respect due the dauphin of the kingdom. Treat the heir to the throne well, and he may very well surprise you with his empire-expanding vision.

The internet can be more than a place where you make a great living, it can be a playground for a whirlwind of creativity, fun, and original contribution.
