Your Source of Power, Magic and Miracles

Integrity is often looked at as moral, as making good things in the world and doing the “right” things. This view is a result of our making choices in life based on looking at them as “good vs. bad” or “right vs. wrong” or “true vs. false.” Most of the time these choices arise from feelings of guilt, shame, blame or at our darkest moment when we have been accused of not having integrity. This is a very limited way of thinking and approaching our lives. In fact, integrity is a way to empower ourselves and others.

Who gives us the power and permission to judge and evaluate others’ integrity? What gives us the right to base others’ level of integrity on what we think integrity is or should be? We judge and evaluate others’ decisions, their lifestyle or life choices and anything else we can push our opinions on, so we can impose our idea of integrity on them. When they don’t accept our viewpoint, we become upset and resentful. We distance ourselves from them. When considering your idea of integrity, I invite you to separate your view of social law, religious beliefs and/or cultural beliefs from your idea of integrity at this moment. Look at integrity as a personal phenomenon.

Every person declares his or her own personal integrity based on personal beliefs, faith, values, principles and life choices. However, we all have one thing in common when it comes to integrity and that is… without it things do not work well in our lives and in our commitments! Whatever our personal integrity is, when we do not practice it we do not accomplish our goals neither, therefore, our intentions. Integrity is not constrained or limited by rules, agreements, descriptions, in-order-to’s or demands to get anywhere or to make ourselves or someone else do anything.

Integrity is the ability to be as good as our word, to declare power over our promises, to be true to our personal values and principles, to live our lives as our own people. Ultimately, being true to ourselves and being true to our self-expression is the simplest form of integrity. That is the only force in life that will bring us power, joy, freedom and happiness. We will fail if we live our lives and hold up to integrity only for others or to get others’ approval, to please someone else or impress another human being. A life lived with integrity is a life that is based on your personal values and principles.

You can use your integrity as a meter, like a sensor to distinguish and realize your degree of the reliability or truthfulness of your actions to your commitments and, ultimately, your word. To me, integrity is when we consistently produce what we promise to produce, do what we say we will do, or say what we tell others we will say. This rule applies to what we promise ourselves and to others. Regardless of the circumstances or obstacles in your way, personal integrity is one of powerful forces of decision making. Why? Notice that each time we get into trouble or cause upset with ourselves or others, it is when we don’t follow through with our personal values and principles or what we stand for in life. When we sell ourselves and our integrity short for the sake of being liked, being part of the crowd and/or being ordinary, we short ourselves.

Discover 4 Amazing and Powerful Methods to Improve Your Blog Articles

Here’s how you can make your blog articles more effective and more explosive:

1. Write something that is newsworthy or worthwhile. Keep in mind that your target audience will not possibly waste their time reading something that they already know or something that is not useful to their lives. So, when choosing the topics for your blog articles, make sure that you only go with those ones that your readers will find worth their while.

2. Keep it short. Don’t bore your readers by making your blog post run for more than 1,000 words. As a blogger, it’s crucial that you know how to explain your ideas using 500 words or less. This is because the audience you’re serving have short attention span. When writing your articles, make sure that you stick with the essentials. Trim down your content by eliminating those information that are not really that important.

3. Make it informative. It’s your responsibility to make sure that your readers will walk away feeling well-informed. So, load up your articles with all the types of information that your readers are looking for. I suggest that you help them increase their knowledge on those things that they find interesting and help them solve their problems.

4. Make it entertaining. Right now, there are thousands of blogs in the online arena. If you want online users to choose yours, you better make sure that it’s entertaining. You can do this by making sure that your articles are fun to read. They must contain more than just information. They must also include anecdotes, stories, images, etc.

Categorization: Once you know what it is you want to sell, simply take some time to research your products so you may categorize them correctly and efficiently. The more products you’re selling, the longer it takes. If for any reason you get stuck along the way, simply Google Search the products you’re selling and follow how other, larger companies who are successfully categorizing the same types of products. The better categorized your site is, the easier it will be for your visitors to find what they’re looking for. As a result, you’ll convert more visitors to customers. For example, if one of the types of products you were selling was iPod accessories, you would not want to have 1,000 iPod accessories thrown into one category called iPod Accessories. You need to break it down into sub-categories like this: Armbands, Cases, Speakers, etc. Once you’ve completed the entire categorization process, it’s like learning how to ride a bike, it stays with you. When you’re ready to add more products in the future, you’ll already have achieved the knowledge of knowing exactly where to place all new products, in a timely manner, with little or no confusion. This will help out in the long run.

Pricing: Even if your site was designed to look like a million dollars, you can’t expect to increase your prices by 25% or more and actually think you’re going to get a lot of sales. All shoppers have to do is leave your site and go to the next one, within a matter of seconds, offering lower prices and buy from them. You can never get greedy, ever. Always stay above reasonable when it comes to pricing your products. Remember, although it takes time and effort setting up your site and getting your name out there, at least in the beginning, you’ll be working for free.

Awesome Life When You’re Frustrated With Life

Beautiful and inspiring when it works, infuriating when it doesn’t. Or maybe that’s just me!

Except, of course it’s always working.

But before you dive headlong into beating yourself up for creating the stuff you don’t like/want, remember that you’re not just creating at a conscious level.

We create subconsciously too. Where we have bought into stuff that is simply invisible to us.

I don’t know about you, but when I’m not a creator of awesomeness, I tend to be an awesome creator of cr*p.

We all are. The trick is to be able to create more of what we consciously want – with ease.

So when you’re frustrated with life here are some things to do to get the energy moving.

1. Complete this sentence. My story about ________ is…

Fill in the blank with whatever aspect of your life it is you want to change.

Don’t overthink it. Just write whatever comes into your head.

You might surprise yourself.

Not sure what your story is? Then look at what it’s happening in your life in that area. It will give you massive clues to what the story is.

Knowing what your story is will help you change it.

2. Acknowledge what you have created.

You might not have created what you want, but when we resist what is, we push against it and this just creates more resistance…

Which gives you what?

Yip, more of what you don’t want!

So acknowledge your great creation.

Imagine if you focused your energy in the direction of what you do want, not what you don’t want?

3. Get clear.

What is it you truly desire to create? If you turned up on planet earth tomorrow and weren’t trying to fit in/please people, what would YOU choose to create?

4. Quit judging yourself.

You’re quite literally attacking yourself when you judge yourself.

Judging yourself for what you’ve created doesn’t help you at all. It’s more likely to keep you where you’re at.

Easy to say, again harder to live.

So if you need to howl at the moon. Do it.

But really do it. Don’t be half hearted about anything you do.
