Mindset And How TO Stay Focused On Your Goals

It is easy to talk the talk when it comes to working from home, generating a passive income stream, or maybe even just creating a healthy additional side hustle.

You may even be a little “proud” about it and brag to your friends and former work colleagues.

I would edge on the side of caution with that.

Working from home requires a very unique set of skills.

This post is going to outline that and what steps you can take to make the whole experience more professional and longer-term.

It does not matter if you are a sports trader, a writer, a web designer, or any other freelance worker who works from home. This applies to you.

#1 Be Professional

The first thing I would say is to remain professional. When working from home do NOT get into the habit of not getting dressed.

I am serious.

I have seen many entrepreneurs talk about staying in their pyjamas for the day and working from the comfort of their bed.

This is not a good idea.

Set an alarm, get up, make the bed, take a shower and get dressed.

work at home

A very important part of mindset is training yourself to win.

A simple task like making the bed in the morning will be considered a “win” so you need to get into the habit of doing things correctly and keeping a positive outlook.

#2 Stay Focused and Set Goals

Goal setting is also incredibly important. Especially for the growth of your business, but also for you.

Let’s say you are making just about enough to be able to work from home.

Enough to cover your bills, expenses and a little left over for a few luxuries in life.

If you are making £2000 a month currently from your work from home endeavours aim to increase it by 10% each quarter.

So, in the next three months try to increase it to £2200.

This doesn’t have to be by trading more hours for work. You can increase your rates a little. If you have happy clients then they will not mind. Or, if you are trading stocks or sports then your pot will be growing anyway so you can just increase your stakes a little for larger returns.

You should always be setting new targets.

It helps keep the mind focused and driven.

You can also start some passive income streams like we have mentioned on the blog before such as writing your own books, sports betting, affiliate marketing, etc.

This last point actually brings me onto my next part.

#3 Always Be Learning & Improving

The mind should be treated like a muscle and by that I mean it needs to be used. Everyone, if they have done the same work for years on end may end up finding it a tad monotonous.

You should always be learning.

always be learning

Obviously, this comes with the territory in some trades. If you are a web designer then you will constantly need to keep on top of the latest software developments for example.

The internet space changes very quickly.

A sports trader also will need to improve its trading techniques as more and more traders come online and figure out an edge.

We always need to be moving, learning and developing our minds.

Do not stand still.

Take the latest Covid-19 crisis for example.

Companies that stood still would have suffered. Entrepreneurs who looked at going on the attack to the markets would have made gains. In themselves and their businesses.

Adapt and evolve was the message for them during this crisis.

There are always opportunities out there.

I hope these three tips will help with your work from home journey. It can be done, it can be lonely, it can even be depressing, many people miss the social aspect of it all.

But, those who master it get great satisfaction and reward from it.

And, they all apply the techniques and steps I have outlined above.

Five Ways You Can Earn Money From Your Laptop

The internet has given everyday people like you and me the opportunity to be able to literally earn money straight from our laptops.

It’s true, as long as you have an internet connection then you can earn an income stream from your laptop.

Imagine that for a second.

You could work anywhere in the world and not be tied to any location. You really would have the ultimate freedom.

This post is going to outline five ways in which you can make this possible.

#1 Affiliate Marketing

The affiliate marketing model is great because you can get started straight away as you do not need any products of your own. The beauty of affiliate marketing is you are able to sell other people’s products and for that, they will give you a commission.

Now, it depends largely on the products you are selling as to what level of commission you will earn. Platforms like Amazon allow you to promote and sell anything on their site and the commissions range from 2% to 10%.

Amazon is great for marketers who want to build a long term affiliate business on a passive scale. What I mean by that is that they usually build businesses that run themselves after a while.

For example, a niche website that offers reviews of products. This is a typical example of what a successful Amazon affiliate marketer would do.

There are plenty of other affiliate options though.

You could promote digital products.

These come with much higher rewards because the overheads are far lower. A digital product only needs to be created once and it can be sold thousands of times over.

So, naturally the product owners will offer higher commissions.

Sites like Clickbank and JVZoo have digital products in their marketplace that even offer 100% commissions. Meaning you will be credited with the full price of the sale.

But most of the time a 50% commission is common, so promote a $100 product and you will earn $50 for EVERY SALE you make.

The way it is set up is you are given a special and unique link that you can share. When people click on this link the trackers know it is your link and any subsequent sales are therefore credited to you.

The best way to really scale this way of making money from your laptop is to build your own email list. Once you have a list of email subscribers you can send them affiliate offers via email.

So, let’s say you have an email list of 1000 subscribers.

With a 10% open rate.

This means that you could send an affiliate product offer to your email list and even if only 3% of the 10% who actually open the emails go on the buy the product you would make 3 sales every email you send.

So, going back to our $50 commission product that would be a nice $150 you would make from sending ONE email.

That’s the really amazing power of affiliate marketing.

#2 Freelance Web Design

Long gone are the days of having to learn years and years of code to be able to develop and build a website.

There are so many drag and drop builders now on the market that practically anyone can create a decent looking website.

I am not downgrading the industry at all and there are still plenty of skills involved but it has become a lot easier and this is also good news for freelancers looking to get into the industry.

web designer at work

WordPress, Squarespace, and Wix are three website builders that once you get to grips with the basics are all suitable and practical to build great-looking websites.

For a basic 5-page website for a local business that consists of a Home page, About page, Services, Contact and a Blog you could charge at least $1000.

Once you get to grips with it you could quite easily knock one of these websites up for a client in a matter of days.

Land yourself two clients a month and that’s $2000 a month for about one week’s work if you are organised.

There are upsells and monthly contracts you can get with this too.

For example, you could self-host the client websites on your server space and offer a monthly maintenance program.

All websites need updating and a little bit of TLC now and again to make sure they are still optimised and running smoothly.

This is really not a lot of work for the freelancer. Maybe just ten minutes per site per month is all you need to do.

For this though you could charge $50 a month on top of the cost for the initial build.

Once you land ten clients that’s another $500 per month coming in each and every month.

When a company or individual has a website, it’s very unusual for them to get rid of it as it will be bringing them in business for years to come and they will offset the costs of running in into their business costs which is good news for you.

#3 Print on Demand

Over the last five years of so Print On Demand (POD) websites have really sprung up in large. This business model is essentially aimed at people who have a small eye for design.

You see, with POD sites you are able to list your designs on things like T-Shirts, Hoodies, Mugs, Phone Cases, and other merchandise and you can then sell them and get a cut of the sale price.

With POD you hold no inventory, you do not have to do any packing or shipping, you do not deal with any customer questions nor do you have to deal with any customer returns.

print on demand t-shirts

Your job is to come up with designs and get your products seen.

It is great model for that.

There are many companies that offer print on demand these days such as Amazon Merch, Printify, Teespring, Sunfrog among many others.

So, a bit like the affiliate marketing model this is the same.

You design a T-shirt say, promote it and share it around on social media and if you make some sales the company will print it and dispatch it for you.

And you collect the commissions.

Sounds good hey?

It really is.

If you are into design then check out Print On Demand – it could change your life.

#4 Kindle Publishing Author

Amazon has also gifted us with the ability to become self-published authors in recent times too. This opportunity is great for anyone who fancies themselves as a writer.

In fact, you don’t even need to write the book yourself. More on that later.

But for now, lets say you are happy to write the books yourself.

Amazon Kindle is an amazing platform which will allow you to publish your work and sell it via the Kindle program.

So, these will be digital copies of your book.

Again, create something once and sell it over and over. Sound familiar?

These books do not have to be the next War and Peace either. You can literally write a series of short stories on just about anything that has an audience.

So, categories like Romance, Sci-Fi, Crime etc do really well here.

A series of short stories work well as they can get people “hooked” so after they have purchased the first book the author can leave them hanging for more so they can go on to buy the other ones in the series.

Kindle books do not just have to be fiction stories either. You can also write non-fiction books on just about any topic.

A short 20,000 word book can sell for $5.99 leaving you with up to 60% commission for each sale.

Again, like the Merch above, imagine if you have a small portfolio of 10 books each selling one copy a day.

short stories on kindle

Before you know it you would have a nice side income stream.

Now, I mentioned above that you do not even need to do the writing yourself.

You can outsource this part. Head over to one of the many freelance websites and put a listing outlining the requirements of your book and see if any freelancers come forward with a pitch.

After this you can negotiate a price and they can start the work for you.

Once delivered you can either assign your name to the book or go with a pen name (as many authors do).

Covers are crucial with Kindle books, arguably one of the most important factors in sales.

These are what gets the customer initially clicking on the book to see if they want to buy it or not. So, do not scrimp here. Make sure you have great looking covers, again you can outsource this work if you are not set up to do it yourself.

#5 Day Trading

The fifth and final method I would like to talk about is day trading. You can trade stocks, Forex markets or Crypto markets daily for profits if you know what you are doing.

However, it is worth treading with caution here if you have no experience. Most traders actually go on to lose money in the markets.

But, those with a solid staking plan, a good investment strategy, and a firm discipline can go on to make a very healthy income stream indeed.

day trading

There are many apps and websites now that offer trading services. Gone are the days where you need to hire a broker to get your funds in place.

Websites like eToro or Trading 212 offer commission free trading with very little minimum entry points so you can get started with very little risk to your money.

When I say little risk, I mean you do not have to deposit large sums to get started. There is always risks with ANY form of trading and Forex, stocks or Crypto trading is no different.

You should start off with a practice account first to get yourself familiar with the process.

Learn the absolute basics before you ever go on to using your real money.

When you get up to a decent standard and your confidence is high you can make a very handsome amount each day. It is possible for day traders to make up to $1000 per day.

There is so much money exchanged each day in the markets that you only have to extract a tiny amount to become a very successful day trader.

Look out for highly volatile stocks that move each day. This is where you can strike.

Review: Bill Burrows’ The Hermes Strategy Streetwise Publications

The Hermes Strategy is a gambling system focusing on horse racing written by professional gambler Bill Burrows and published by Streetwise Publications.

Bill Burrows is a former ambulance driver and pensioner who was looking for a way to supplement his pension a few years ago. A chance meeting with a stranger in a coffee shop while on holiday in Cornwall opened him up to the world of making large lumps of tax free cash placing calculated bets on horse racing.

Most weeks Bill earns an average £350 from horse racing. This adds up nicely to £1,400 each month. He may make more or he may make a little less. Either way, he is generating around £18,000 a year. That’s £18,000 tax free!

This is not gambling even though technically it is classed as gambling because you place bets on horses, it is best described as trading. This is not about sitting in the bookies watching the TV egging on your horse to win. This is about choosing horses using a scientific approach and not whether you like their name or think they will win.

The Hermes Strategy is a system for picking selections based purely on research which takes into consideration a specific set of criteria which is well documented to affect the performance of horses.

Read The Hermes Strategy Sales Letter Here

Did you know that not all horses which are entered into a race are running to win? Sometimes they are there for a run out and to get experience. It would be foolish to place a bet on them to win.

The system is based on a programme which was developed in the 1980s. The guy talking to Bill at the coffee shop in Cornwall had developed the programme for a friend who was mad about horse racing and gambling. 

The programme was added to a page on a popular horse racing website but over the years people began to ignore it. It was languishing in the cyber version of gathering dust on an old shelf in the small store room at the back of a large building.

One of the reason’s it lost favour is that it wasn’t delivering the results it should have been. Bill realised this when he began trying the system out for himself. Now Bill noticed the potential of the programme, and he realised that there was something not quite right in the instructions.

This is when Bill decided to change a few factors and test the system. He could see something was wrong but he couldn’t figure it out. He had to make tweaks and run tests and trial out new instructions.

Well, I am happy to say that Bill figured out what was wrong and created a new set of instructions and factors turning this potential money making system into one that delivered the results he wanted.

It is this new and improved system, which he calls The Hermes Strategy, which generates the £350 a week tax free income he enjoys from horse racing.

Once he knew he had a reliable working system which was consistently generating winnings, he recorded everything down into a manual which was published by Streetwise Publications.

Streetwise Publications have been around since 1989 and are a trusted publisher of information products, manuals and home study courses. If they were dodgy, they wouldn’t still be in business all these years later. 

Fortunately, MOSJO Information Publishing is licensed to sell the Hermes Strategy. You can learn more about it here: Bill Burrows’ The Hermes Strategy Streetwise publications

The Six Figure Email & Book Business

In this article you will be shown how to build a six figure business using simple emails and eBooks.

The concept is pretty basic in its approach but do not let that fool you, this is an incredibly profitable and powerful business model if implemented correctly.

If you read my other article: How This One Thing You Do Every Day Can Make You A Lot Of Money, you will know how profitable writing can be. In this article I will show you how creating a simple eBook can grow into a six figure a year business.

The email and book business is also known as the one book funnel. It requires writing one book which you either sell or give away in exchange for an email address. 

If the book is being sold for a low price of £4.99 (as an example) then at the point of purchase you will offer other higher priced items as part of the book funnel.

If you are giving the book away you may try and offer another product for purchase but normally you do that later via email.

The whole idea behind this business is that you build an email list of people who are interested in learning more about what it is that you are offering. 

Filter Out The Wheat From The Chaff

The people on the list need to be niche specific. When I say niche specific, think of it like this; if you were a food stall owner intending to sell vegan food, you would need to have an audience of people who are either vegan or interested in vegan food. 

You wouldn’t want to try and sell venison burgers to vegans or vegetarians nor would you want to try and sell tofu burgers to die hard meat eaters.

It would be futile to even attempt it. You wouldn’t make any money if you tried to sell your products to people who didn’t want them or appreciate them.

You need to have an audience which is congruent with what you are selling.

The reason for this is that you will create a funnel of products which you will promote via email to the people who have bought your book. Products which are relevant to the content of your book.

One of the best ways to get a list of niche specific people is to sell the book. When you give a book away for free, you get a lot of freebie seekers and tire kickers who are curious to see what your book is all about. 

There is nothing wrong with that, but you will end up with an email list with a lot of people who have no intention of buying from you which could cost you money in autoresponder fees.

You do not want people who are not interested in buying from you. They are cold leads and trying to turn them into buyers is hard work, if not impossible. Whereas if you sell your book, those who have bought it have an interest in what you have to say other than simple curiosity. 

They have made the conscious decision to hand money over to see what it is that you are sharing. This means that they are warm leads. They choose to know more and it is likely that they will buy from you again. 

It is far easier to sell to someone who has already bought a product off you than it is to try and sell something to someone who hasn’t.

You need warm leads for this business.

It Is A Lot Easier To Start A Six Figure Business Than You Think

The whole process isn’t really hard in practice. The ebook is easy to write. The landing page/sales page is easy to create using web builders like WordPress and the delivery of your product is done via an email autoresponder like Aweber.

This whole process has built many six and seven figure businesses. The business itself is an information publishing business focusing on email as the main marketing tool.

That and the one book funnel. The funnel is a series of offers which are either shown to the book buyer at the time of buying such as a one time offer or as an offer bump, or they are promoted later to the book buyer via a series of emails.

The person who has handed money over for your book has shown an interest in what you have to teach and so they will very likely be interested in buying your other products which complement and enhance the content in the book.

The One Book Business Card

The book which you sell is like a business card but a thousand times better. It doesn’t just have your name and contact details on it, it has important information, case studies and stories showcasing your skills and knowledge.

It helps build a rapport with your reader and shows them that you know what you claim to know and that you can do what you say you can do. These books are a great way to find clients and sell your services and products.

Even without a book funnel, one book can generate a lot of work and help bring in clients if you are a service provider. If you sell products, one book can make sales for you even when you are sleeping.

Build a funnel which incorporates other products and you have a greater chance of building a six figure a year business. People have done it in a few months of launching their book funnel. I am not going to say that this happens a lot to everyone. It is a rare occurrence but it has been known.

The Offer Bumps And One Time Offer

When you build a funnel for your one book you should add offer bumps and a one time offer at the point of sale. When a person is going through the process of paying for your book, they should be shown one or several other products which go with the book.

For example; if you are selling a book on How To Make Money As A Freelance Writer Starting Today, you could offer them a second PDF product The Freelance Writers Client Getting Checklist for £7. 

This could then be followed by another PDF product such as The Fastest Way To Find High Paying Clients at a price of £47 and then to finish off, you could offer them a one time only offer of a 1 hour video case study called How I Attracted £30,000 Worth Of Client Work In 24 Hours priced at £97.

If one person who bought your book at £4.99 went on to buy all of the other products, you have then generated a total of £155.99.

Not everyone who buys your book is going to buy any of the offers you show them at the time of buying, however, you only need a small percentage to buy to push your profits up.

If you had 2,000 people buy your book and only 1% of those people bought any of your other products, you have 20 people giving you more money which could soon add up.

If you were selling the book alone, you would only have 2,000 people paying you £4.99 but with a funnel you will generate more money from that sale. We haven’t even discussed the even higher priced items you will promote to your growing list of book buyers.

Keeping with the freelance writing theme, those who have bought your book How To Make Money As A Freelance Writer Starting Today and found it useful and really want to work as a freelance writer, may purchase a higher priced item.

Such as an online training course at £1,997 or even a £10,000 done for you package where the book author and his team find them clients who will pay them £10,000 or more each month.

Imagine now having 25 people pay you £1,997 and 3 people paying you £10,000 for your done for you service?

Now you have an additional £79,925 to add to the income generated from your other product sales. All of which has come from the same advertising spend.

The Book Pays For The Advertising

You shouldn’t expect the book itself to make you any money, the book sales should pay for the advertising you run to drive people to your books sales page.

It is possible that the actual money earned from the book sales itself could be a loss when compared to the money spent on adverts.

It is the offer bumps and the one time offer which pushes the income up and turns a loss into a profit. One you are at break-even or running at a profit, you can then ramp up your advertising and send more people to your book and make more sales.

The more people who buy your book means that you are growing a bigger email list which means that you get the opportunity to promote your other more expensive products to more people.

The Automated Email Follow Up Sequence

Now that you have a growing email list, more people will be exposed to your automatic email follow up sequence which they will be added to when they buy.

This is where you set up a series of emails which are sent out each day. The sequence is usually between 7 and 30 emails. You can add more if you wish. Each email goes out 1 or 2 days after the previous one and will all have further useful information regarding the niche topic your book is about.

They will also give the buyers another chance to buy the offer bumps and maybe even the one time offer – cheeky I know but who says you cannot offer it to buyers again? It isn’t on sale to the general public.

You will also send out regular broadcast emails when you are ready to launch your higher priced items if they are not already lined up in your follow up sequence. This is where the big numbers can come in. And remember, this list was built from the initial book sales. 

The advertising costs which were originally at a loss are now about to be responsible for a wave of cash into your bank account when people buy your higher priced items.

Instead of 25 people buying your £1,997 product in the earlier example,you now might have 50, 75 or more and instead of 3 people paying you £10,000 for you to find them high paying clients, you could have 7, 11 or even 18. 

Imagine having over 100 people paying you £1,997 and 18 people paying you £10,000. It is doable. 

Your income now has gone flying past the six figure mark.

All from selling one book.

You can if you wish, write another book, create other products and set up another funnel to run alongside your first book funnel.

With most of the products being either PDFs and online video with adverts sending them to sales pages which take automatic payments, a funnel runs automatically and only needs managing.

How This One Thing You Do Every Day Can Make YOU A Lot Of Money

Are you looking for a way to make six figures or more a year?

Or maybe you are just looking at making a few thousand a month without a lot of hard work.

In this report, I am going to tell you about one way to make money which has been around for centuries and is one of the best, if not THE best way to make money.

This has turned regular people into millionaires, multi-millionaires and even some into billionaires.

People look for all kinds of ways to make money and many methods require a lot of hard physical work which has to be repeated to make more money. 

This method does not require a lot of hard work nor does it need to be repeated. You see, this method of making money generally requires doing the bulk of the work just once. 

Once the work has been completed, it can keep on generating money for months and years after. Sometimes the work can still be making money decades after it was finished.

So what is it that I am referring to?

I am referring to…

The Written Word!

Writing is incredibly profitable yet very few people actually realise it.

It is something which nearly everyone does at least once a day. Even if it is to write a status on Facebook or Instagram, most people do some form of writing each day. It is one of the easiest things a person can do, and it can be one of the most profitable things a person can do.

I am not necessarily talking about becoming an author like JK Rowling or Roald Dahl, even though they are a perfect example of how a collection of written words can still sell books years and decades after they have been finished.

You do not need to be the next Stephen King or James Patterson to make money from writing.  You do not need to be brilliant at creating movies in people’s minds. 

You can quite easily make a tonne of money simply writing a book teaching or explaining in great deal a subject which people want to know about. This is known as information publishing… and it can be incredibly profitable.

How Publishing Information Puts Pounds In Your Pocket

Humans like to learn. In fact, as a species it is vital that we learn. It is how we as a species and a society evolve. Individually, learning is what takes us from being hungry to being fed, from being cold to being warm, from being vulnerable to being secure and from being poor to being wealthy.

Education and learning takes us to places we would not normally go.

And today, the majority of the learning is done via the written word. People learn by reading books, manuals, newsletters and papers. They can be physical books and manuals or they can be online digital versions like eBooks and PDFs.

The written word is powerful. Do the writing once and get paid over and over again.

Even if people learn via a video and not a book, the script was probably written and the video may include subtitles. The written word is the number one way to teach and communicate.

At The Beginning There Was A Word, And That Word Was…

You will no doubt be thinking that there is more to this business than just writing words and that it cannot be that simple. You are both right… and wrong.

You see, a written book or manual can make you money, but an unwritten one cannot. 

Yes you will need to add your book to a website or a merchant site like Amazon. And yes you will need to create a payment button and you will need to send people to your books sales page. But they are all relatively easy to do, but without a book, they will not make you any money.

Things like book covers, sales letter pages and advertising can be done by other people later once the book or manual is written. But always remember, it is the written word which makes the money.

It is the information inside the book and the words written on the sales page which will generate the money. 

And believe it or not, writing a book is incredibly easy to do too. Far easier than your probably first thought.

You can write the bulk of the book by talking into your phone and using software or a transcription service to convert your spoken words into written text. When you have a document full of transcription, you can edit away and craft a book the same way a sculptor chips away at stone to create a statue.

There are people who have written a book within a week and have it online making sales the week after. If a person can write a book in a week, then technically they could write 52 books in a year.

Obviously I am not taking into consideration the research required, tiredness and writers fatigue but, there is no reason why a person cannot write a new book each month and have 12 new titles for sale in one year.

The Six Figure Book Business

Now imagine that you priced your books at £9.99 each – which is a very respectful price for an information book, you can sell them for a lot more – and that you sold just three copies of each book a day.

You would earn £131,268.60 in one year. (If all 12 books were available at the same time)

3 x 12 = 36 x £9.99 = £359.64 x 365 = £131,268.60

Obviously, not all of your books will sell 3 copies each and every day. Some may sell more and some may go a day or two without selling any copies. But the possibility is there.

When your books are written and online, then they can be bought. If they are not written there is nothing to buy and the possibility to make money is not there.

A collection of Roald Dahl‘s popular children’s books.

Once you have written a book you start another. So after one year and 12 books online, a new year means 12 more books. After two years you now have 24 books online all priced at £9.99.

Or, if you prefer, you can build an email list of people who are interested in a specific topic and build a book funnel. That will ramp up your potential to make six figures without having to write 12 or more books.

You can learn more about that here: The Six Figure Email & Book Business.

Work Once, Sell Forever

It is vitally important that you know and remember this, when you create an information product like a book, you do the work once and get paid over and over again.

Unlike a builder who gets paid for building a house and then needs to build another house to earn more money. A person who writes a book or creates an information product only has to make the product once and they can be paid selling that same one product for many years to come.

People still buy books by Stephen King, J K Rowling, Dr Seuss, Roald Dahl and James Patterson many years after they were first released.

The Power Of Multiple Income Streams

When you have one product or book written, you start another one. You are then creating a second income stream. We know that rich people are wealthy because they create multiple income streams. 

Instead of having just the one monthly income coming in like an employee who works for a wage, the wealthy person has several incomes coming. And they will not be wage based either.

They will have it set up so that they are earning money on autopilot. Books and information products are like that. When you have a portfolio of books all selling a few copies each day, you have multiple income streams.

Imagine you have a book making £500 each month in sales. £500 itself isn’t a lot. I doubt it will cover all of your living costs and it certainly won’t keep the wolves from the door as the saying goes.

But what if you had 5 books all earning £500 a month?

You are now earning £2,500 a month. And you do not need to do a full month’s graft to earn it either.

You could quite easily be making sales while taking a pleasant stroll through a park or enjoying coffee and cake at your favourite high street coffee shop.

One Letter From Retirement: Earn A Year’s Wage In One Week

There are many ways you can make a lot of money with the written word. One of the most profitable ways to make a lot of money which does not require you to write a lot of books is to write sales letters. You can write your own sales letters for your own information products or you can write them for other people and be paid for them.

To learn how you can make more than a year’s wage writing just one sales letter – which will be needed to sell your own books – check out One Letter From Retirement.

Three Ways To Make Money From Amazon While You Sleep

Earning money while you sleep is really the passive income dream. Thankfully in 2021 you really have no excuse now if you want to make this a reality.

We are incredibly lucky to be living in the information age, and the technology we have at our disposal can really leapfrog your desire to earn money while you sleep.

Throughout this post I will show you three ways in which you can make it happen, just using the Amazon platform.

You will just need to apply what you learn; nothing is a get rich quick scheme. They will all require effort on your behalf.

Number #1 – Publish short books on Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle is a great place to list your books digitally. You can knock up a book on pretty much any subject matter – there will be an audience for it, get a book cover designed which you can outsource, and then list your books up for sale on the platform.

These do not have to be really long pieces of work. You can write a book around 20,000 words and that will be more than enough to publish as a short story or non-fiction piece.

The beauty of creating digital books and publishing them on Amazon Kindle is once they are published they will stay so for as long as you keep them there.

And they can sell many times over and over.

So, you may have to do a bit of work upfront to actually write the book but once you have done that you can sell it forever. No getting publishing deals, buying wholesale, selling in shops, or anything like that.

The business model is make it once – sell it multiple times.

Just imagine you have 100 Kindle books published on the platform and each one just sells a conservative 10 per month.

If you sold each one for just $5.99 and you only made $3 from each sale as profit (Amazon take their cut) you would still be making $3000 completely on autopilot.

This is why the Amazon Kindle platform appeals to many new age writers these days.

Well worth checking out if you are a master of the written word.

Even if you don’t really consider yourself a great writer you can even outsource this part. You do not have to publish under your real name, you can use a pen name so really it doesn’t matter who writes the book for you.

Number #2 – Start a Print on Demand T-Shirt Business

This is a great passive income stream for designers. Did you know you can sell t-shirts online on websites where you do not need to hold any stock, do any shipping or packaging, or even deal with any customer queries?

That’s right, your job is to simply list your designs on t-shirts and leave the rest to the website. Amazon Merch is a huge platform but there is always a waiting list for new designers, however, there are many more where you can get started listing your designs right away.

Some other popular print on demand platforms include:

  • Printful
  • Printify
  • RedBubble
  • Society6
  • SunFrog
  • Zazzle

You really have the pick of the bunch when it comes to this passive income stream.

Your job is to come up with designs. You can literally jump on popular trends. If there is an election coming up for example this can be a great time to get into print on demand. People go nuts for their supported party and love to wear shirts to show their true colours.

Do not let YOUR feelings get in the way. Just make some designs and make some money!

Again, like the Kindle method above you will only need to make the design once and then you can sell the shirt over and over. Well, the company you list it with will do the selling.

You will make a cut from every sale. Let’s say you sell the shirts for around $20, you could expect to make around $8 yourself each and every sale.

So, again let’s do some basic math. If you have 100 designs up and they each just make ONE sale a month. That is $800 a month you will be making a month.

Do the work upfront – get paid multiple times over.

The great thing about shirt designs is they do not have to take very long to do at all. Even just a simple slogan or a few words can sell thousands of prints.

Its all about the message and striking a nerve with the buyers.

Again, political, controversial shirts do well here.

So – if you like design then this could be a great way for you to earn some money while you sleep.

Number #3 – Sell Affiliate Products Using Amazon Associates

Did you know that you are able to promote any Amazon product and earn a commission if someone uses your link then goes on to buy it?

Well, you can.

You need to sign up to the Amazon associates program which is free and then you are all set.

This will allow you to get an affiliate link from any product on the website. Then you can share this link or better still insert these links in a website and then when anyone goes on to buy from this link you are credited with the commission.

Commission rates vary depending on the product category but even if you are only making 2% per sale it all adds up.

The trick here is to be niche.

Build a website that is based around one topic, one industry, or one niche and then write reviews of products on Amazon.

Let’s take Lawnmowers for an example.

You could create a website all about lawn care, provide useful information around the topic. Check out the forums and questions and answers about it.

Then when you have a few decent share-worthy articles up on the website you could start to do some review type posts about lawnmowers.

Titles like “Best Lawnmowers Under $200” or “Best Rotary Blade Lawnmowers for 2021” are a good place to start and then within the blog post can place your affiliate links.

Hopefully, when people have read your reviews, they will then make the decision to head over to Amazon to complete their purchase.

The best part about the Amazon affiliate system is that when a user clicks through to the site via your link ANYTHING they buy during this visit will be credited to you as a sale.

So, let’s say they head over to buy a lawnmower but also grab some clothes and some other bits too while they are there.

You will earn commissions on EVERYTHING they buy during that visit.

This is a nice little bonus with the Amazon affiliate system.

So – create a niche website, write a ton of articles that will rank in the search engines, and then you will be well and truly on your way to earning from Amazon using their affiliate system.

Conclusion

I hope I have outlined three ways here using Amazon where you can in fact earn money while you sleep.

It is entirely possible.

Perhaps the easiest entry is the T-Shirts model if you have some design experience. However, long term they are all great options and I know many marketers who do all three!

How To Use What Little Money You Have To Build Wealth

Everyone wants more money. For some people it is just a desire to have more and do more. Money is a tool which can give people a better life. It can enable people to do more and have more freedom.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who need more money than what they currently have. It isn’t a mere desire to have and do more, for some people, they simply want a life with a little extra peace of mind.

They don’t want to simply exist and live a life where they have nothing left once the bills and expenses are all paid. They want to buy the odd luxury item and do some leisure activity without it being a constant internal discussion whether they can afford it or not.

They want one day where they can simply spend a fiver and know that it isn’t going to be incredibly detrimental to their lives. Every pound spent on something which is not a necessity is pushing them closer to having bailiffs banging at the door.

Having little spare money is a nightmare. Especially when money is the best tool to use to get more.

Wealthy people are wealthy because they mostly leverage what they have. It is said that poor people save for a rainy day and wealthy people invest for the future.

Wealthy people buy money.

A great example of buying money is the story of the guy who sat near to the bus stop for one of the busiest bus routes in Havana, Cuba. The bus company would not give change, if you didn’t have the exact change which was – at that time – 40 cents, you either lost 60 cents or didn’t ride the bus.

Most people who needed to use the bus had 1 peso notes. They needed to ride the bus, but they didn’t want to lose 60 cents. The guy who was sitting near the bus stop had a tin full of coins and he would buy 1 peso notes from the people wanting to ride the bus for 80 cents.

The soon-to-be bus passengers got the exact change for the bus and instead of losing 60 cents they were only 20 cents down, and the guy who was  buying the money was making 20 cents on every transaction.

He was a middleman business if you like. He was  making his money by helping people to save money and to get home. I imagine the bus company were not happy about it as they were missing out on a lot of income they were stealing from their passengers but that is a different story for a different day.

That guy was leveraging the money he had. He took all of his coins and swapped them for notes. He didn’t pop any spare money he had into a tin and hid it under the bed for a rainy day, he was using it to grow it.

Money grows when you use it. Obviously, you can lose money if you invest in the wrong things or something bad happens, but that doesn’t mean that you should fear using your money and not use it. If that was the case then Warren Buffett would not have become a billionaire.

When Warren Buffett was a young man, he was the polar opposite to his friends. Where they were buying the latest flash car on HP and spending what was left of their wages on wine, women and song. Warren was using his spare money to buy up stocks and shares.

I am sure that not every purchase or deal he has made in his life has been successful, I am more than certain that he has lost money at some time or another, but what is evident is that over the long run, using his money to buy money has paid off big time. 

He is incredibly wealthy and that is all down to his decision to leverage the money he had spare and not squander it on things which at the time would have been fun but in the long run would have been detrimental to his life.

Buffett could not see any logic in spending what little he had left on things which were not bringing anything back. Once rent and living costs were covered, the idea that his friends spent virtually the rest of their wages on a car which was depreciating in value, required ongoing costs such as fuel and wasn’t theirs until they had paid over the asking price for it made no sense to him.

It was a similar story with Roman Abramovich, he too decided to spend whatever money he had left out of his wages to buy stocks in the company he worked for. He was working in an oil field with his friends. Over the years, Roman kept buying shares until one day he was the major shareholder and the owner of the company.

As I am sure you know, Roman Abramovich is a billionaire. He is currently worth between 12 – 13 billion dollars. Not bad for a guy who decided to use his spare money to buy stocks and shares. If he and Warren Buffett had feared losing their money, their lives would be a lot different today.

Fear of losing money is understandable, but it also stops people from growing a large pot of money. Money is a tool with which you buy money in many different ways. But essentially, all that you are doing is buying money.

Whenever you buy a physical product at £5 and sell it for £7, you are making £2 per item. 

When you pay someone £30 to write an article for you which you sell to a website owner for £100, you have made £70.

When you pay someone £5,000 to write a sales letter for you which generates £50,000 in profit from extra product sales you have made £45,000. 

Whatever it is that you buy to sell or whatever service you pay for to help earn money, you have bought money. However you want to look at it,  spending money is simply buying money back. Money is the tool you use to make money. To make more money and to become wealthy, you must leverage money.

If you have little money to spare then you need to really sit down and work out what is the best use of that money, and also figure out other ways to increase your pot of spare money. 

I remember reading about a guy who saved over £350 by not buying drinks at work. Not once did he buy a drink from the vending machine in the factory he worked at. Instead he made drinks using the free water, kettle and kitchen area which was also provided by his place of work.

He would only drink black tea and because he didn’t have it strong, he would get two drinks out of each tea bag.

His cup was that big that it would accommodate two drinks from the drinks machine. With each drink costing £0.20 from the vending machine. He worked out that a £11 box of tea bags made the same amount of drinks that would have cost roughly £350 if bought from the vending machine.

The cost of those drinks from the vending machine was a week’s wages. He would have had to work a full 40 hour week to earn the money to pay for the same amount of drinks had he bought them from the factory drinks machine. Most of the guys in the factory bought their drinks. 

With that £350 saving, he was able to put the money to good use like investing in shares, or an online course, or buying stock to sell for a profit. He might have used it to help fund a much needed holiday  instead 

The point is, he saved a stack of money by not doing something which couldn’t have been a different way. He didn’t sacrifice not having a drink throughout the day, he still enjoyed big mugs of tea. He just didn’t pay over the odds for the privilege. There are a lot of things that people can do which can help free up a lot of money which can be put towards something better. Money that can be leveraged to build a bigger bank of cash.

Without money, you are not going to make money.

Trading the markets is a great way to leverage your money and grow your future retirement pot. If you would like to learn how to make an effort-free £250-£575 per week from just one financial market using a quick and crafty trick CLICK HERE:

Can You Make Money Matched Betting In 2021?

During this post, we will be talking all about matched betting but more specifically, can you make money matched betting in 2021?

Matched betting as you may or may not know is a term that is used when you basically take advantage of the free offers that bookmakers give either new or existing customers.

You may have seen these before if you are familiar with online betting or trading.

These are when the bookmaker will try to entice the customer with an offer to get them to sign up.

Something like a free bet, a no-risk bet, or maybe even just some free cash in the form of extra betting funds!

The thing is you can’t just withdraw these offers.

So, if a bookmaker is saying it will match your initial deposit up to £30 you simply can’t just deposit £30 and withdraw £60 a few hours later.

It sadly doesn’t work like that and is not that easy.

However, it is easy once you get to grips with it and understand a few fundamentals to do with a  betting exchange.

You see, what essentially you will do is “extract” or “move” that £30 matched deposit or free bet from a bookie to a betting exchange or vice versa.

Let use simple scenario.

Let’s say Manchester Utd are playing Liverpool.

The odds for a draw in this match is 4.0 (set as decimal odds)

These are the odds for a draw with the bookmaker you have just signed up with.

Now, you will also need an account with a betting exchange. The most popular one is Betfair.

Let’s say the odds to “lay” the draw on the betting exchange is 4.1. (The term “lay” means that it won’t happen).

So, you would bet your £30 for a draw on the bookmaker @ odds of 4.0

And lay the draw with a similar amount on the exchange @ odds of 4.1

Here is the math for this:

matched betting example

You can see that with the free matched deposit bonus the bookie has given you, you could place this bet and lay it off in the exchange for a guaranteed profit of £21.95 whatever the outcome.

You do not win your stake back from the free money but you are able to extract a large portion of it.

The beauty of this is that there are hundreds of bookies with offers like this just waiting for you to cash in on the offers.

Is It Only New Customers Who Get The Offers?

No! Although you should definitely exploit these offers first.

Create a simple spreadsheet using Excel or Google Sheets. Track all the bookies you have signed up to, set your username and password, and put down the offer that you signed up with.

As I mentioned some bookies will match your original deposit, others will just give you a set amount to bet with, some will make your first bet risk-free meaning it will get refunded if you lose.

All of these offers are there to make you money. Do not just gamble with them.

Lay them off in the exchange to make your bet a guaranteed winner for you!

You can easily make a cool £1000 just going through the bookies doing all the signup offers for new customers.

But, it doesn’t stop there.

Some of the bigger bookmakers such as Bet365, William Hill, Ladbrokes, or Paddy Power keep on sending its customers offers, free bets, and price boosts!

Why do they do that?

Well, it’s obvious really. Most people lose and lose badly when it comes to betting.

Most people are not savvy enough to do a little bit of clever matched betting to make the most out of the free offers and money on the table.

free bet

Here is a free bet from a sportsbook just waiting to be laid off in an exchange for some free cash!

Its quite possible to make a small side income stream from matched betting in 2021 for sure.

But is it going to make you rich?

Well, I would say no. You can’t rely on this as a full-time income stream as eventually the offers will dry out or you may even find they stop altogether. Bookies are clever, whilst the average punter may not be too savvy, they are like you and will work out what you are doing sooner or later.

It should be said this is a perfectly fine and legal method, they can’t stop you doing this, it’s fine. But they can stop the offers coming in, and that’s what usually happens after a while.

So, as an alternative, I would like to make you aware of the System 89P Check it out here!

This is a proven horse racing method whereby it teaches you about race selection, horse selection and most importantly how to manage a points based betting system.

Here is what Christopher said:

“For the record; I am doing very well with the 89P Racing system purchased from you last year. I started using it in late February and I am showing 65% profit, which amounts to about £850. So thanks for that one!”

Sports Betting or Sports Trading? Which One Should You Do?

There is a big difference between sports betting and sports trading. Both can make you a healthy side income but the two are far different disciplines and require different skillsets.

Over this post, we will highlight the two and hopefully, by the end, you can make an informed decision on which route you would like to take.

Sports Betting

Benefits

The benefits of sports betting are it can largely be done as a set and forget exercise. You see, most of the time you are betting on the final outcome of a match. Take a football match, for example, the match can end only three ways.

Either the home team wins, the away team wins or the match is a draw.

Take a look at this game here between Newcastle and Chelsea.

pre match odds

You can see the odds for each scenario.

This means for every £1 staked on those you would get the odds multiplied by your stake back.

Here is what we mean. A £1 bet on Newcastle to win would get £6.50 back.

bet slip complete

This is what we call a bet. You can set the bet before the game and literally just wait it out and see what happens, you don’t need to watch the game, you don’t need to follow the game.

You can just check the result later and see if you have won or not.

This type of gambling is really only for fun. If you want to make a decent side income from this then you should never just bet or “punt” on games or sports just for the fun of it. At least do some pre-game research first.

This method of betting can be done now on a vast array of sports.

Even though this bookie I have taken the screen shots from is based in the UK you can bet on sports and teams from all over the world!

Tennis, Rugby, American Football, Basketball, e-Sports, Volleyball, Handball, Horse Racing, Dog Racing, Snooker plus more!

You really are spoilt for choice.

Downsides

But, with all this choice comes risk. We will talk more on that later, but just so you know the majority of accounts set up with bookmakers are losing accounts. A huge majority in fact.

There is a reason that the bookies are so rich and most gamblers fail to make a single penny profit over all. That reason is value. The bookmakers will never really give you the true value of each outcome. If a team is 4.0 to win, you can really say that they are 5.0.

Take a two-headed coin. If you bet on the outcome of either heads or tails the outcome is 50/50 or in odds terms, it should be 2.0 – meaning if you bet a £1 you should either win a £1 or lose a £1

But a bookmaker would never give you those odds. They are more likely to price a scenario up like that at something like 1.95 meaning if you lose they keep your £1 but if you win you get £1.95

As you can see this is an unfair advantage to the bookmaker. It always happens so they ultimately will always win as they have the edge.

So, you have to bear this in mind if you are going to go down the betting route.

It is no coincidence that the UK’s highest-paid CEO is the head of Bet365 bookmakers.

She paid herself a whopping $422 Million last year

Skills Required

So, what skills are required to become successful at sports betting? Well, number one is discipline. You really need to stay focused on the sports and markets that you know.

If you are new then it’s really best to paper trade for a while until you get to grips with it.

Learn about the markets, whether its goals markets, corners, match results, or even things like players getting cards.

Once you develop your own systems and get the confidence to trust it, that is when you are in a position to grow your betting fund.

The people who just bet on random games or big accumulators (multiple games in one bet) are the bookmaker’s dream punter.

They will also rarely win long term.

So, do your research, stick to a system, and stay disciplined. You will lose now and then, this is inevitable. But always think long term.

It’s about the end of the month not the end of the day.

Do not chase bets too. If you do find yourself on a losing streak, take a break. Do not bet bigger and chase the next game.

There are always hundreds if not thousands of potentially good risk bets the next day.

Sports Trading

Benefits

Sports trading is vastly different from sports betting. You are not really too bothered about the overall end result of a match.

As sports trading exchanges are very similar to the Forex and stock exchanges there are millions of pounds being exchanged every single day. Sometimes even a high stakes horse race will have over a million pounds traded on it.

Certainly, with football, it is not uncommon to have millions of pounds traded on the game either before kick off or during the game. We call the later in-play.

Take the same game we talked about earlier.

The Newcastle vs Chelsea game in the English Premier League has had over £1.8 Million pounds traded on it and this is only 12 minutes in.

inplay sports betting football market

The beauty of having a large amount of money on a game like this is it means there is a ton of liquidity. This basically means you have more chances to “extract” a little bit here and there for yourself.

That is essentially what traders do.

They “predict” which way the odds will swing and then trade out once they have either come in or gone out in their favour.

For example, the position above.

If you have backed Chelsea before the game you could have got odds of around 1.68.

You can see this by looking at the historical trade data. (This is just like a stock)

market after goal scored

So, now they have scored an early goal some traders will simply trade out at the far lower price of 1.15 for a profit.

They will not see the rest of the game play out as that would add risk. For example, if Newcastle were to equalise then the odds would jump back up.

This is a very simple trade.

Another classic trade is backing to lay a horse during a horse race.

This is a very similar thing in by which you back a horse at one price and lay it at a lower price. This can all be done before the race even begins locking in a profit with no need to even watch the race at all as you have already guaranteed a profit.

So, the benefits of sports trading are you can lock in profits before the event even starts, you do not need to watch the match or race, you only need to extract a small profit regularly to make good long term profits and you can trade many markets.

horse racing pre race sports trade

As you can see form the horse race above this person has locked in a small profit before the race has even begun. You may be thinking that £0.20 profit is nothing and you are right, but the stake was only £2.00 so that is a 10% return from this one trade within seconds of placing it.

You see this horse’s odds went up before they came back down.

sports trading market move

You can see here on the chart that the price went from 4.4 up to 7.0 – so, this trade was placed when the horse price was around the 6.8 mark and started to decline again. It did so, back to around 5.9 which meant this trader could “scalp” a small part out for himself.

Profit locked in before the race had even begun.

Sports trading like this is not really gambling, it’s about measuring the markets and taking your profits when you are happy with them.

And because you are able to put your lay positions in early too and keep them in play you are safe really.

The problem is what happens if things don’t go to plan? Well, that’s when you have to bite the bullet and cash out or trade out for a small loss.

This will happen, but trading is about minimising the losses and maximising the gains.

Downsides

The downsides to sports trading are that you really need to be at your computer the whole time. This is not a set and forget method.

You need to be evaluating the markets and measuring the games or races in play should it get to that stage.

Some of the best football traders in the world always watch the games as they can get a real feel for how it’s panning out.

So, to be a successful sports trader you really need to dedicate time to it.

If you are just started out then you will need to spend hours upon hours at your PC studying the markets and developing a strategy that suits you.

Unlike betting it’s not the type of activity where you can pick your selections in the morning and check them later that evening.

There are advanced methods like using bots etc to place trades for you but that is for the serious and advanced traders only. You do not need to go to that level to make a healthy side income.

Skills Required

The skills required to become a successful sports trader are patience, discipline, and the ability to read markets or at least be able to read the way an event, match, or race is going.

Remember, you do not have to watch the whole thing. The best trades are short in and out. Set your target and stick with it.

Another massive skill for successful sports traders is knowing when not to trade. There are so many options each and every day, but it is knowing when to place your trade and when not to go near it that often separates the good traders from the ones who lose.

Which one will you be?

Conclusion

As with all sports betting or trading, there are risks involved. In fact, with any side hustle or online business venture, there are risks.

The world of trading on sports is no different.

However, you can get an edge. The best way to get an edge is to develop your own system. But this can take months if not years to fully develop.

This is where this site can come in to help. We have two fully developed horse racing systems that are here for you to try today!

Check out the comments from the users on the System 89p horse racing system and my other one The Hermes Racing System.

Both have very good success rates. You can judge for yourself!

Best of luck!

How To Change Your Life Using The Rule Of Five

What you are going to learn in this article:

  1. What the rule of Five is.
  2. Why the rule of Five is so powerful despite it being incredibly simple.
  3. How the rule of Five can change your life for the better.

The rule of five is a very powerful yet incredibly simple tool for transforming your life for the better. It is often overlooked and even ridiculed because it is so simple. People believe that it cannot work or is a waste of time because of its simplistic nature.

But it can be quite the opposite in fact. 

The rule of five makes things more achievable because you are focusing on easier to manage bite-sized chunks of time or tasks. This is vital if you are starting out with something completely new and alien to you.

For example; let’s imagine that you haven’t done any exercise for many years which has left you weak and you have now decided that you want to strengthen your whole body.

You could join a gym and spend an hour working out or hire a personal trainer to bootcamp yourself strong. It sounds great in principle but it can actually work against you.

Throwing yourself into something which is completely new to you which requires you finding a spare hour during a busy day, a couple of days a week will be a struggle. Not only that, doing an hour’s worth of exercise when you haven’t done any for a long time is very hard on the body.

When you struggle to find a large chunk of time and when you feel absolutely shattered after a hard workout which you aren’t used to, it’s incredibly easy to become discouraged, lose discipline and motivation, and simply give up.

The rule of five is about starting small and developing new healthy habits which will keep you motivated and on track with what you want to achieve. It’s far easier to complete smaller tasks and find smaller chunks of time, especially at the beginning. 

take five minutes

Finding a spare five minutes during a busy day is far easier than trying to find an hour. Doing five minutes of exercise is a lot easier than a full hour. Finding several five minute periods during a day is far easier than you realise. You can do multiple five minute sessions throughout each day.

Doing just five exercises is easier than doing a full workout. 

Doing just five press-ups is far easier than attempting to do fifty.

Writing for five minutes or writing five pages each day will grow into a book.

Reading five pages of a book or reading for five minutes will grow into new knowledge.

Practicing or learning a new skill for five minutes will become a new skill set.

Start small and build up.

We’ve all heard of the saying ‘it’s best to start small’, but very few people actually do. 

They dive feet first into something and go hell for leather for a few weeks… then quit. 

They hit the wall, reach burnout or just get too discouraged and end up hating and avoiding the one thing they are doing and trying to achieve.

If you are trying to build a side business or a second income in your spare time, you will no doubt have a huge list of tasks that need to be completed as part of the building process which will appear incredibly daunting. When something is daunting it can be seriously off-putting.

With the rule of five, these problems are reduced into more manageable and less stressful tasks.

Write a daily list of five tasks which need doing as part of the business building process. Work on those tasks only until they are complete before writing out a new list of five tasks. Any tasks which you do not get done in a day, transfer them over to the following day’s list of five tasks.

Going to the gym for an hour-long workout requires packing a bag with kit and shower essentials, getting to the place, doing the workout and then getting home. Doing several five minute sessions while waiting for the kettle to boil while making a drink is far more achievable when starting out.

With the rule of five, you are conditioning yourself with new behaviours. These behaviours become habits, and habits are the things which drives and controls human behaviour. Once you become used to new patterns of behaviour, they become second nature. The studying, the exercising, the writing and the new work patterns become easier to do.

The rule of five is the foundation of new habits.

When you complete a five minute session or your chosen five tasks, it is an achievement which is empowering and motivating. You feel good and want to do it again. When you cannot find an hour for a long session or if you feel absolutely worn out from doing a hard workout, you can soon develop a mental resistance to doing it again. 

It’s a lot easier to quit when you have missed a session or several or if you feel crap from doing a couple of hour long sessions, the first in many years.

If you think five minutes or five tasks is not enough time for you, do ten. It really is up to you, but you have to understand that you must start small at first to give yourself a fighting chance to succeed.

Now here is a little secret which increases the power of the rule of five… very often,  when you have completed a five minute session or done your five exercises, or read your five pages etc, you might decide to carry on for another five more minutes. 

What’s another five minutes now that you have started? 

Once you are in the flow and you have nothing important pending which requires your time, you can carry on a bit longer. This means that you do twice as much as you initially planned… or three times more… four times more. And when this happens, you are more motivated and empowered by your achievement.

Instead of feeling a failure for not being able to find a full hour out of a day, you now feel really great for doing more than you had scheduled.

Once you are fully used to your new habits and behaviours, you can start to increase the amount of time you spend on your tasks, exercises, reading, writing and learning.

When you start to see results such as a stronger healthier body with more stamina or your side business is now beginning to show traction, you will be motivated to do more. Possibly carve out more time in your day and even start to go to the gym for dedicated half hour or hour-long sessions.

Habits and behaviours develop over time through constant repetition of action. If you do too much too soon and quit, then you have little chance of developing new life-changing habits and behaviours because you have stopped the repetitive action.

Nothing will change and you will be in the same place as you were when you decided that you needed to make changes.

Yes, if you do more then you will achieve more faster, but the truth is, very few humans are actually that disciplined, focused and motivated to make major changes or do the work which requires a lot of time and effort.

I don’t want to say that people are lazy, but by and large, they kinda are. They prefer to take the easier route and slowly work up to changes. It is human nature. People in general like an easy life and so you NEED to understand and recognise this so that you can work with it.

Use this knowledge to your advantage. Start small and use the rule of five. Develop those new habits and behaviours and evolve into the better newer you, you want to be without quitting.

Are you looking for a healthier and stronger body but do not want to spend hours in gyms and would rather do your workouts at home at your leisure in smaller manageable chunks?
