Published

on

Success is a something that every human wants to attain in life, whether old, young, white or black everyone wants to have a success story. Life doesn’t seem to be fun without success in it and no matter how dark it might seem to get, the colour of success will brighten your world. On your way to attaining the success you desire in life there will be numerous obstacles and your strength to overcome those obstacles is what will determine your success. There is no success without hardship.

No matter how talented you might be, you will have to face obstacles at one point or another in your life. We all know numerous great people, top entrepreneurs, inventors, leaders, who have gone through many obstacles before they attain their desired level of success. If you are finding yourself facing obstacles and wondering how to overcome them, here are a few means to overcome obstacles.

Never quit: Quitting also means giving up on your dreams and desires. When you face obstacles know that you are one step closer to greatness. Instead of giving up, work harder towards reaching your goals. Remember that everyone who has gotten to a great height in life has had to embrace failure instead of quitting when faced with hurdles. So never give up.

Be positive: Be positive with your thoughts, and set your mind on your goal. Know that your mind is the greatest weapon you have, and you become what you think. Think about positive things, and set your mind to believe that everything you ever wanted and dreamt of will be a reality someday.

Dream big: The bigger your dreams are, the harder it is to attain them. Instead of limiting yourself to small dreams, dream big and know that you will surely achieve those dreams no matter how hard it might seem. Know what you truly want and go for it without hesitation.

Set out your goals: Your goals give you direction towards success. Go for your goals, write them out and dream about them. It is not bad to have big dreams. Have alone time to outline those big dreams of yours, write down what you need in other to attain those dreams, and never stop till you win. Know that obstacles will surely arise on your way and know that when you clearly outline your goals, that will make the journey clearer and give you more direction.

Find solutions: When obstacles arrive during your journey to success, know that the only thing left for you is to find a permanent solution, instead of hiding or trying to quit, face the obstacle and look for a solution. Know that obstacles will arise during your way to success, and all you need to do is to find the required solutions. Every problem has a solution, and you just need to find it.

How Author Roy Gene Huff Continues To Move Forward

Published

How will you continue to grow and succeed?

Everyday, I wake up at 4 AM to reflect on my day and accomplish my top two goals. I’m deliberate with time and actions, and reflect on my progress during the week. I have a routine that includes journaling, deliberate practice, exercise, continued learning, and engaging my network of like minded people. I set boundaries, and get enough rest to engage the day and other important aspects of my life outside of work. Most importantly, I believe in expressing gratitude. This makes it easier to step out of my comfort and embrace the unexpected.

Are there any major sacrifices that you have had to make in order to move forward?

Jim Rohn said you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. I’ve limited my associations with those who bring me down. I also gave up alcohol and fast food. I sleep by 9PM most days, so I can get up early and accomplish my top two daily goals.

“Building Your Own E-commerce Business Is Easier Than You Think”- Peter Pru

Published

on

An interesting entrepreneur who I was recently able to chat with is Peter Pru who is the CEO and Founder of Ecommerce Empire Builders. He is well experienced in the world of e-commerce. Pru was struggling with his own business until he found out about sales funnels, then he really took off from there. He realized that many others in the e-commerce space struggled with sales as well, so that is why he created Ecommerce Empire Builders. He is able to make those struggling businesses into “Cash cows”. I asked him a few questions and here is what he had to say:

Can you tell me the story of your prior successes, challenges, and major responsibilities?

I never could make e-commerce work for me. I worked all day at my job and all night on my online business. I made sales, but hardly any profit ever came from it. Until I learned about sales funnels. Using them I was able to start guiding my customers down a sales process specifically designed to meet the customer’s needs and make the business as profitable as possible.

Can you tell me about a time when you almost gave up, how you felt about that, and what you did instead of giving up?

I lost nearly $40,000 in inventory when I was banned for false IP claims while selling on Amazon FBA. I was wrecked. The business was doing so well and I thought I had this whole eCommerce and making money online thing figured out. When I got banned I had nothing to show for it. No customer data, no way to sell them again. I realized at that moment that I was building Amazon’s business not my own. Since that moment I promised myself I would not be in control of my business again

What are the most exciting projects you are working on now?

Right now my time is mostly filled with helping my current e-commerce clients build out sales funnels and processes to make their business a cash cow.

I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?

The reaction my clients have when they start to see results. It’s priceless. Especially when I see someone who is completely new to e-commerce make their first sale. It’s a feeling that can’t be put into words.

Is Vaping Interfering With Your Lifestyle? It’s Time You Meet PHILTER

Published

on

I was able to have a quick chat with Amanda Byrd, Christos Nicolaidis, Mitch Mulanix and John Grimm who are the founders of Philter. Philter is a catalyst for necessary social and environmental change and will act as a change agent that dramatically impacts and alters the socially acceptable vaping behaviors. Not only does it help the environment by blowing out much cleaner air rather than the usual vape vapors but it is also a great alternative for smoking and vaping. I asked them how they keep motivated and here is what they had to say:

I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?

“The true beauty of these products is that they give you a choice as the vape user,” said Christos Nicolaidis, CEO, Philter Labs. “Sometimes you’re going to want to blow big, fat clouds. And that is totally cool. But, inevitably, you’re going to encounter situations where your vapor plume might impact those around you. If you have a PHILTER with you and the need arises, you’re immediately prepared to filter your smoke and carry on with your day-to-day activities.”

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?

Creating these socially conscious vaping behaviors really only serves to make the shared spaces we live in that much better and to finally start tipping the scales back to a more balanced view of those who choose to vape.

How do you push through your worst times?

Think vaping without producing secondhand smoke is impossible? Think again! Meet PHILTER, the slim, sophisticated personal filters so you don’t have to sacrifice your lifestyle.
