We are powerful beyond measure...

Do you believe that every failed experiment is a closer step to success?

Here is one of my favorite poems:

Our Greatest Fear óMarianne Williamson

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

óMarianne Williamson

      Yes, this is the most powerful poem I have encountered in all my years. Read it in its original form, then saw it played on the Coach Carter movie. Truly underrated, in my opinion.

    In the moments where my awareness becomes clearest, the hindsight of twenty twenty often shows me how other, more ignorant, moments I might have used the powers haphazardly, and I'm afraid that's what happened. Lessons learned, we say. And hopefully this is true, as the more I tune into and 'own' the powers of god that flow through me (see, it's not really my powers to own), I start to assume a position of responsibility in the moment, and hone my intent to using the measureless powers for good, to brighten another persons day, to serve others in a beneficial way, to increase the situations vibration on a noticeable and real level. First we have to face our fears of having so divine of powers flowing through us, then we must intend to use it for good. Awareness is key! for nothing is more dangerous than someone who doesn't know their own strength. This is a beautiful poem, I'm thankful to read it today.

    I have noticed that even a dog can detect when you are fearful. How much more will human beings notice?

    Your fear or faith can spread around like a wild fire.

    Feel fear, and you will come out as fearful, feel confident, and people will perceive you as a confident person.

    Also, people in the same room for long enough will eventually stabilize their emotional and mental attitude in the same way. I can't remember the name of the study but they took like 3 persons amongst which one was an actor.

    They had to stay there long enough and the actor was paid to act like he was truely angry and near the limit of depression. Guess what, the whole group after some time showed signs of angryness and depression.

    They then repeated to process with an actor acting happy and serene with people that were normally stressed and guess what, they all came out relaxed.

    Powerful stuff there!

    Have the best day of your life,

    I'm stuck here on what software I can use to perform some basic tracking. I'm using Bing PPC and Leadpages. I thought I could use the basic tracking in Bing and the simple analytics in Leadpages. I've done a small test, running a handful of targeted ads and a few landing pages, however leadpages shows I have 0% conversions. I'm not even sure if it is tracking when someone actually clicks thru my landing page or if all 3 pages I have tested suck that bad.

    I read a post today on the WF declaring that article marketing was dead. If youíve been on this forum for a while youíve seen this declaration multiple times before. The Warrior said it used to work years ago, but there is no sense in using this outdated bygone strategy today. Let me ask you Ė do people still read articles online? Of course they do and these articles are the lifeblood of some of the most popular web sites on the planet. All publish articles that have outgoing links to further information or the authorís web site. Here are some examples:

    Everyone has a reputation. When you "put yourself out there" like we IMers do, you open the floodgates to personal assessment by your peers, prospects, customers, competitors, followers, and even influencers in your marketplace(s). Didn't you have a reputation for _____________ when you were in public schools? Didn't you have a reputation among your circle of friends for being ____________ ? You probably have a reputation in your family, deserved or not, that is brought up and rehearsed at every family reunion. You may still have a reputation if you hold down a job in the workforce. You co-workers might say you're the office joker, the company slacker, or the brown noser, or maybe you're the guy with B.O. What does this have to do with IM? I'm glad you asked.
