    A tighter daily ritual

    Rituals involve both inward and outer elements.

    The great thing about rituals is that if you do the outer steps associated with inward factors, you change your inner reality.

    Other people work in the opposite direction.

    In the end, it doesn't matter. What matters is you were able to produce the right kind of change.

      Sorry but I am confused. Are you talking about metaphysical stuff here?

    That "one thing" for me is always changing, but it seems like my biggest need is time. There's just not enough time in the day to knock out everything I'd like to do. Then again, there's never enough money either, so it's a stalemate between time and money.

      I heard the saying that in business you either invest time or money. Since I don't have money I can only invest time lol, and yet like you I don't find enough of it to invest

    "It's a trap!" ~Admiral Akbar

    OP, I don't know if you're trying the "Ask" thing to develop your next product, or are looking for ideas that may be the "magic bullet" to success...

    but this is the definition of the Newbie Shiny Object Trap.

    "If only I could just get a product or service picked."

    "If only I could just get my website up and running."

    "If only I could get some great video content out there.

    "If only I could have a blog."

    "If only I could get that Youtube optimization pack up and running."

    "If only I could edit my own videos."

    "If only I had some Amazon/Kindle books."

    "If only I had a cool intro/outro for my videos."

    "If only I had traffic to my site."

    "If only I had backlinks to my site."

    "If only I had SEO work done on my blog."

    "If only I had that plugin that makes affiliate marketing easier."

    ...

    and after each of these, "And then it will be Over," only to have the realization shortly thereafter that in fact there is ONE MORE hurdle to be jumped to meet success.

    ...

    It Never Ends.

    There's always One More Thing.

    And it depends on where you're at.

    A couple days ago I wrote an in-depth explanation of what a sales funnel really is and how it works. Fell on mostly deaf ears because it was speaking a language 99% of the people here aren't ready to hear yet.

    Reposted on Facebook, it got a lot stronger response.

    There is no "magic bullet."

    The Cure-All is getting the basics right, and then Sticking With It.

    Most people on WF don't last beyond three days with a project. They look for motivation outside themselves. Is there any wonder they don't succeed?

    the correct mindset! Do you want to be part of the 80% or the 20%

    The 20% makes all the money!

    To get there you need a mentor and coach.

    You need to be Expert, patience & hard worker to be success in the near future. One need to be Honest also. We all know the English proverb that Industry is the key to success. So set up your mind, where you would like to reach. After setting your target, start to reach there. Thanks

    In any path to success you need to understand what is your why, your why can be to anything from your family or just to live a better life. The first level to success is seeing success before you even get their. Next you need to know what to do and how to do it, and then take action. Any business is a process, don't rush the process trust the process.

      No sir, my wife says I've officially had too many. I disagree, but you know how that story goes.

        I do indeed, Sir. It goes like this:

        Mrs Addams
        You're 40. Do you want to live to 80?

        Tom
        It depends. Will you always be with me?

        Mrs Addams
        Of course, silly, you know I love you.

        Tom
        (Through a mouthful of doughnut.)
        Love you too, honey.

    There are many "things" that lead to success, but you only asked for one "thing."

    The one thing you need is a passionate desire and drive -- a drive that makes you want to learn, want to keep going in tough times, want to always be better than you are, want to make sacrifices in your normal life, want to make time when there is no time, want to break through any obstacles that get in your way. Without drive, all the other things don't really matter much.

    Hi Walsh!

    Love being free more than you fear doing uncomfortable stuff.

    Some feel in awe of my life: I see it as no big deal. I've spent the past 51 months of my life living in places like Fiji, Bali, Thailand and Costa Rica as a full time, pro blogger. We just booked a trip to Nicaragua. Why? Me and my wife Kelli love our freedom more than we fear doing uncomfortable things. So we do the freeing things, to live our life of freedom. That is the #1 tipping point to get past, to inspire you to follow simple, powerful, proven advice regularly, to free your audience and to create an inspired life.

    All the best!

    Ryan
