Book Offers Parable of Hope With Real-Life Scenarios

Published

on

Gus-husband, father, employee for a non-profit-hates his life. Nothing seems to go right for him. His clients are obnoxious, his wife is distant, his kids don’t seem to understand him. Sometimes when driving home, he thinks about giving the steering wheel a quick jerk that will put him in the path of a semi-truck so he can end it all.

We’ve all been there, and author Jeff Caliguire understands that. And he also understands that “Every once in a while, we sense there’s a voice calling us out of the valley and into the mountains.” That’s why, in his new book The Habits of Hope, Caliguire lets Gus hear that voice. For some of us, that voice tells us we have a bigger purpose; it might be the voice of God, it might be the voice of someone who believes in us; it might be our own self-confidence coming to the surface. For Gus, it’s the voice of an old mentor from his childhood who teaches him not only about hope but how to practice it through daily habits.

Gus first reconnects with his mentor when he receives a letter from him. Of course, Gus’ story is a parable, so the letter might well be directed toward all of us readers. Gus’ mentor calls him a seeker, adding:

You refuse to settle for life at face value… You can’t put life in a box of success defined by someone else. You’re the one who pushes the envelope of what’s accepted and acceptable. You see the world as impressive and incredible but also disappointing and dismal. You see hypocrites and get bugged. You see the rich and famous and ask, “Why are they so messed up?” You see the religious and ask, “Who wants to be like them?” You experience pain and loss in life and ask, “Is there a better way?”

The speaker goes on to remind us that there is a better way and that all who wander are not lost. We’re just searching-searching for hope.
I won’t give away the storyline to the rest of the book, but I will say that Gus has some surprises in store for him as he reconnects with his mentor and learns the Habits of Hope. I also found many helpful points in this book that I’m not likely to forget soon, so I will talk a little about those.

One of the biggest eye-opening topics in this book for me was about time. I constantly feel like I don’t have enough time, like I can’t always stop to smell the roses, like I am ruled by the clock-which is referred to in the book as “chronos… the sequence of moments.” But Caliguire introduces us to another kind of time-“kairos,” Greek for “opportune moment.” In other words, the right time. Kairos is the time when we are to be fully present and in the moment, when something happens at the perfect time. Caliguire tells us that kairos is “the way God acts when it comes to time. Not rushed. Not too busy. Not overbooked. Instead, fully present.” The story goes on to explain that sometimes we are to spend our time doing certain things we might not have expected or planned, but regardless, it is the kairos time for doing them. Such moments might be spending time with a friend or taking a side trip we didn’t plan on that leads to new revelations for us. Ever since I read this definition, I’ve been trying to focus more on the present moment and enjoy it rather than worrying about all the things still on my to do list because I now better realize that everything happens in its appropriate time.

Another aspect of the book I liked was the discussion about vision. Caliguire quotes Psalm 20:4, “May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” He tells us that God loves our plans, adding, “If more business leaders and government leaders would just get this! God is pro-vision and pro-plan! God wants us to dream big dreams and have a vision for progress. But then God wants our plans to succeed, not lay in some drawer or in a pile.” Not having plans or a vision is equivalent to not having hope. We need to invest in our futures by planning, by believing that what we wish to achieve is possible, and by preparing for it. As Caliguire succinctly puts it, “Those who invest become the best!”

In all, there are twelve HABITS OF HOPE, which form the title acronym. Just to name a few of them, there is HEARING: Hearing You Are Blessed, INVESTING: Investing in Yourself and Your Dreams, FUELING: Fueling Your Brain, OVERCOMING: Overcoming Setbacks Constantly, PROGRESSING: Progressing Toward Your Vision Daily, and EMPOWERING: Empowering Others to Hope.

So how does it turn out for Gus? I imagine it’s no surprise that he gains back his hope and his life improves. That’s the whole purpose of the book, and saying so doesn’t really give anything away. But what’s important to remember is that Gus’ story is a parable-a fiction that Caliguire hopes will become reality for his readers. Gus’ story won’t really be a success unless readers take the Habits of Hope to heart and apply them to their lives. We can all use an extra dose of hope, and we can all improve our lives. If you feel like you’re seeking more meaning for your existence, maybe grasping for a lifeline, take a chance on The Habits of Hope. It’s like a friendly hand that reaches out to save you from drowning. I suspect that by the time you finish reading it, you’ll have created a new vision for your life, one you can work toward achieving with a little extra hope.

Aim To Be An Entrepreneur, Not A Onetrepreneur

Published

By

One of the tougher tasks for most of us is delegation. Whether the difficulty is due to a tendency toward perfectionism or a lack of trust in the ability of others to do the job as well as we will, most of us resist handing over even mundane tasks associated with our business, therefore assuring that we will not grow.

A more dangerous reason that some of us keep ourselves occupied with busywork is to escape the very thing we need most: time to think.

If your goals are, as management gurus like to say, BHAG, or big, hairy and audacious goals, then learning the art of delegation is critical. One cannot run a large organization alone. Truthfully, even the solitary geek affiliate marketer finds that he must outsource certain tasks if he is to remain competitive

If in network marketing with a growing down-line, you are probably mentoring those who have big goals like you and if you have an affiliate business without messy down-lines, you must still get the word out via SEO, blogs, social media and the innumerable tasks involved in 21st century marketing.

None of us can become expert in all of the required fields of internet marketing; therefore the answer is, of course, to contract out the jobs in which you have little or no expertise. The good news for the small business entrepreneur is that there are many places where one can find skilled people to hire for one task or as a virtual employee.

Sites like Elance, Guru.com can provide freelance web designers, experts in SEO, blogging, copy writing or almost and task you can conceive of. And recently, Fiverr.com has come on board offering article spinning, web design, video production and an amazing variety of skilled people from all over the world; all for $5.00 per job.

Due to the emergence of technologies like Skype, VOIP, virtual assistants, (VA’s) are becoming increasingly commonplace. Young and surprisingly skilled workers from the Philippines, India and China can make themselves invaluable in a very short period of time if you are willing to train and then delegate.

After handing over the mundane tasks, our fear may be that we have too much time on our hands, too much time to think.

Why Do You Need SEO for Your Website?

Why You Should SEO Your Site?

Search engine optimization is often explained in complex terminology when it is simply a way of increasing your website’s chances of ranking highly by manipulating your web content to include the words that your target audience might use to find your website as well as find the right relevant links. This article seeks to simplify the explanations so that search engine optimization becomes less intimidating.

Search Engine Optimization – Don’t forget the site map!

Search engine optimization is not complete without a site map. Search engine spiders will index content at a faster rate when one is available on your site. Site maps are also useful to those who already visit your site and for new visitors. Site maps assist them in navigating your site.

https://www.easyfie.com/read-blog/1555898_facts-cmovies-com-timber-garden-offices.html

Use Key Words Sparingly

An important rule to go by when dealing with search engine optimization is to use your keywords or keyword phrases in the title of your page. Using the keywords in your title will make it much more likely for users to visit your pages. If your title does not contain keywords, there is no way for users to know whether your page is relevant or not. Always remember though, your keyword selection is very important and you should not over use them. The search engine algorithms are now more advanced and can pick up the slightest thing that may seem off to them.

Optimal SEO Strategies

For optimal SEO you should strive to use your keywords in any links that are posted on your page. Search engines give preferences to links over plain text so try to create links that utilize your keywords. Also test surrounding links tend to get higher preferences so use them around your links as well.

One tip for increasing your search engine optimization is to get to know your target audience. There is a big difference in what you should post if your readers are stay at home moms verses single men who like to travel. Once you can figure this out you will know what type of blog posts to write.

Remember to be patient when it comes to carrying out your SEO as it takes time and you will not see results instantly, the search engine spiders have to crawl your site once more and identify your content. You might work hard changing things around and not see an instant reward from it. Don’t get discouraged. Just keep at it and you will eventually see some results. Remember it just takes time for your blog or site to grow. Patience is a virtue!

Another tip to increase your search engine optimization is to have web analytics set up on your site from day one. You don’t want to miss what analytics can teach you about your traffic. There is always something you can learn from it and it is a great tool to help you with your SEO. There are many other analytics programs out there to use and in our next article, we will review the best and what we use ourselves.

SEO is a great web strategy that allows the search engines to filter through your content and actually find you. With a good SEOplan you can really get high rankings and not have to pay for PPC and CPA, thus doing things organically, which is what we like to do here. This exposure allows people the ability to find your site easier. As presented in the simplest terms at the beginning of the article, search engine optimization simply means attracting more customers to your website, which increases profits, which is what every website wants. By absorbing the information and concepts presented in this article, you can use them to create a framework of success for your website.

The Amazon Marketplace

Published

We all remember years ago if we wanted a good book to read we simply headed to the library. But for several years now books at the world’s most popular marketplace online – eBay aside – are not the only items being sold at Amazon. We have, for several years been able to buy beauty, cell phones, cameras, clothing, health care, jewellery, shoes, toys and video games, and that’s only scratching the surface!

Digital Products Marketplace Thriving At Amazon

More and more people are now heading down to Amazon online to source digital products like cell phones, accessories for our mobiles, kindles, iPod Touch, and iPad and iPhone devices. So, let us look at some of the hottest sellers in the digital products range and see why they are just falling off the shelves at the Amazon warehouses across the country.

These are just three of the best sellers at Amazon

At $119 the Kindle 6″ hi-resolution display with a built in light is the reader of choice for most Americans at the moment. Amazingly this kindle has Wi-Fi included allowing you download a book in under a minute. It has an eight week long battery life even when the light is being used and its book selection is simply too huge to even consider. There are no fewer than about 180,000 books to choose from and all the best selling authors are there too. This is my favourite kindle, especially when reading in bed, with the built in light, an added bonus.

One of the hottest digital products on Amazon at the current time is one you might not have heard of-

The Roku 3 Streaming Player is fast, powerful and has a digital video player built in for an opportunity to watch thousands of films and television shows, either in standard or high definition quality stream. There is a smart headphone adapter to allow you to watch those films in private late at night when the kids are asleep. Everything is supported from Netflix to Home Box Office Go and Major League Sports channels.

Faster and more powerful. With up to 1080p HD video, and extended-range, dual-band wireless performance for increased speed.

Amazing remote with headphone jack. Use the included in-ear headphones to crank up that late-night flick while the kids (or parents) sleep.

One-stop search. Find your favorite movies and TV shows all from one place, from top TV and Movie services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Hulu Plus.

750+ channels and growing. The best selection of streaming out there. Everything from Netflix to Hulu Plus to HBO GO to Major League Baseball.

Free iOS and Android device app. Use it like a remote. Browse and add new channels. Even stream your music and photos from your phone or tablet to your player.

But one of the biggest selling and popular devices in 2013 is not the iPhone but the Samsung Galaxy cell phone and the tablet version.

The Galaxy Tab 2 has a 7″ screen, 8GB of internal memory with an option to pump that right up to a stunning 32GB with an SD card, a 1GB dual core processor and super fast 1GB of RAM. This baby is fast and it sells on Amazon for just $179 and is one of the top selling digital devices on the marketplace at this moment in time.

This is definitely my next buy, can’t wait to own it. Maybe someone will buy it for my birthday, coming up shortly!

Today, the world is buzzing with advertising tactics and they take every step possible to ensure that their business is successful. Global marketing strategy plays a very important role in making or breaking a business. However, it is not necessary that this strategy will always work for your business. It does not matter if you aren’t a business giant. You can still use this strategy if you adopt the right attitude. Nonetheless, it is important that you find out if the global marketing strategy is necessary for your business. With the list of its advantages, you may be in a better position to figure that out.

Many people are not even aware of what exactly a global marketing strategy is. Some people have a misconception that it is a standardised process that is taken on a global platform. However, there is more to this. There are some aspects that can be standardised. This includes the logo. But the global strategy may or may not include advertising and packaging. It can be said that the global marketing strategy is just a part of the global strategy. There are many more components that make the global strategy effective.

Without objectives, the whole strategy becomes hazy. You must try to ask essential questions targeting them to the right audience and when you find the answers to these questions, you must consider your objectives have been drawn.

However, these objectives need to be detailed. With every single detail looked after, the global marketing strategy becomes more focussed. With the right global marketing strategy, you can enjoy the following advantages:

1.) Improved products and services:

The process of growing means that you get to learn many new things along the way. As you learn more, your efficiency increases and this benefits your products and services in several ways.

2.) Stronger competition:

This is one of the most important advantages that you can get. When on a local level, there are many companies that are capable of giving a tough competition to their competitors. But can a company really give the competitor company a run for their money on a global level? Global marketing strategy helps you to be competitive enough to survive the global competition with satisfied customers and an upper hand on the competitors.

3.) Customer awareness:

Since your products or services will now have a global platform, the customers can get access to them from the internet. they can use this to make purchases or send feedback or simply to learn more about your products or services.

Know What Keeps Your Customers Awake at Night

Published

By

One of the most important steps you need to take in your business in order to fully serve your market is knowing your customers problems, concerns and worries. You must be able to answer this question, “What keeps my customers awake at night?”

In addition, you must understand their dreams and goals. Knowing what worries your customers is essential in providing them with solutions. What are their most challenging problems? What drives them? What are their dreams and goals? And most important, what keeps them awake at night?

A great way to find out is to have them complete an in-depth questionnaire that allows you to more fully understand their goals, dreams, current position, and challenges. This information puts you in a much better position to help them gain the success they desire. It also helps you disqualify those individuals who are not a good fit for your high-end programs.

Why in the world would you want to disqualify someone? It’s simple; the better match someone is for what you have to offer, the better you can actually serve them.

Pay attention as well to what your customers have very little interest in. A few years ago I was in search of a very specific type of car. I wanted a Cadillac CTS. At that time I was not planning on buying a new one; I wanted one only a few years old and in great shape. Once the search began, I quickly realized that many salespeople do not listen to what a customer wants. Regardless of how clear I made it that I wanted a CTS, each salesperson attempted to sell me something else.

I recall one gentleman who said he was very certain he could find the car I was looking for. I was ecstatic when he called me to say, “I found a perfect car for you.” I asked what color the CTS was and he said, “Oh, it’s not a CTS, but I know you will love it.” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. He completely ignored my wishes and tried to convince me I wanted something else. Needless to say I didn’t buy my CTS from this man.

After owning my first CTS for six years, I was ready to get a newer model and decided this time it would be brand new. There was a marked difference in my experience. The sales professional I decided on focused on what I was most interested in about the car rather than showing me features that were not at the top of my list. When I drove away in my new car, I felt like a million bucks. I had been validated in my desires and not those of the salesperson.

When you pay attention to your customers’ needs and desires you assure greater business success.
