We have to learn to use the past in our advantage. We need to use the past as a boost on our motivation for what we are building.
We can’t change the past, but we can choose to remember what we want from it.
“The past always looks better than it was. It’s only pleasant because it isn’t here.”
– Finley Peter Dunne
Take 50 peoples that are witness to an event. Visit them 5 years later and you’ll find out that they all have their own memories of what did happen. And it will be 50 different memories. They’ll all tell the truth from what they remember.
If we use our past to boost our present positive action, we are using the past in a good way.
We all choose the way we use the past.
“Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.”
– Dale Turner
Do good deeds and you will always feel good about it. Even if someone else used you in some way.
Tenacity: Being tenacious, holding fast, persistence.
Finding good reason to give up will never get you anything good. Giving up can be used to learn and grow. But if you let it become a habit, you’ll end up losing a lot.
“You can’t give up! If you give up, you’re like everybody else.”
– Chris Evert
Be persistent in doing what needs to be done every day. Make a list of the most important one, and start with one at the top.
It doesn’t matter if you do them all every time, as long as you do the most important first.
Most people will over estimate what they can do in one day and under estimate what they can do in a year.
Small step done every day will matter more than one big step done once in a while.
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
You can build something great doing a few small goal every day.
Take action right now.
Result comes from actions.
You will create opportunities as you take actions.
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
– Milton Berle
Luck comes to you as you are there working on your dream.
If you wait for someone else to build your dream, it will never end.
The causes of your present life are quite large. In there, you have a part in it, even if you think you did nothing. Your choice of doing nothing has influenced the life you are living.
So, instead of living this life, take action to reach for something you really want.
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”
– Colin Powell
One of the most common tips, to build the traffic on a blog, is to leave comments on others people blog.
I’m an old surfer and marketer. In my early years, the ‘Golden book’ was common on most of the personal web site online. I was leaving a nice little text about the site with a little invite to visit mine at the end. In that time, it was working with an average of 30% to 40% of people visiting my own web site from that text. Now, there’s less and less personal web site. Most people will go for a blog instead of a web site.
It’s mostly the same that we do with post. With the difference that we need to leave a comment related to the subject of the post. This means that you need to read and understand the post first. Then that you need to create a comment that is as good as you can. It takes times and energy to do so.
If I could give you an advice, don’t leave a comment that looks like “Great post”, “Interesting subject” or “I agree with you”. Doing so isn’t going to bring any new people to your blog. You need to create something good with your comment.
View your comment as a promo tool for your blog. It has to be as good as your blog. It also needs to be short. A comment with more than 10 lines will only be read by the author of the blog you wrote on. Yes, you want the author to read your comment, but you also want the visitor to that blog to read it.
Remember, when you leave a comment, it’s more than a comment; it’s an ad to yourself and your blog.
