Goal Setting - Why Power

by Mark Johnson Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
After a conversation with a friend this morning, my piano teacher in fact, about goals and achieving, it got me thinking about the system of goal setting. I myself have set many goals in the past and like many people have failed to achieve some of them, why is this? Why do others have dreams (a vision without a goal) and not live them or even anything close to them?  My best answer comes from a mentor of mine, Tony Robbins, ...

What defines success to you?

by Mark Johnson Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online
Many of us are fed this idyllic vision of a successful person by society, the one that has the huge house, Barbie for a wife, sports cars, parties on the huge lawn, swimming pool, a helicopter, a boat and banks full of money; but that is not the definition of success. My definition is "the achievement of the desired result", this can be whatever you define it to be.  If you know any financially rich people described in my paragraph above I guarantee you ...

Home based/Online Business?

by Mark Johnson Computers and Technology, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online
Like many others before me, I have had a rough ride trying to find a home-based business or online/internet business that is real, honest and legitimate.  I have fallen for cons, been ripped off for thousands of pounds, which I have never managed to claim back, had my hopes and dreams dashed through dishonest, let's face it, scum bag people.  However, I could never allow myself to give in chasing my dreams. Although I turned to depression and thought almost everyone out there ...

The Pure Power Of Massive Action

by Mark Johnson Business, Home Based Business, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
As I observe my state of mind on a daily basis along with listening to powerful motivational and psychological videos on YouTube from people like Tony Robbins and Les Brown, I find myself this morning considering the results or consequences of taking no action against taking massive action.  I think it fair to say most of us wake up some days full of the joys of life and others where we could just stay in bed and hide from the world. On those ...

TGIM - Thank God It's Monday

by Mark Johnson Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
Before you contact me to say I've got the title phrase wrong, I can tell you that the title isn't a typo and although I still love the phrase "Thank God It's Friday", why can't we also love and believe the phrase Thank God It's Monday? How many people every week spoil their Sunday afternoon dreading Monday morning? How many people get up on a Monday dreading the rest of the day and even the rest of the week desperate to be able to ...

Time freedom - online business Vs a job

by Mark Johnson Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online
I got up a 6am to go for my morning jog down to the beach and I felt particularly grateful today for my new lifestyle.  It was a cold dark icy morning and almost no one else was up and about outside. I jogged down to the beach trying not to fall on the ice and I had a really nice run down the beach. There was no one else on the beach and I felt totally free, more so than usual.  The ...

To remember things that help me feel good and keep me moving forward, and things that help me fight the natural human instinct to ...

The beauty of choice and time freedom

by Mark Johnson Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, News and Society
What a fantastic start to the day! I got up at 6am to find a heavy snowfall had dropped in the early hours of the morning, so I did what anyone who doesn't work a 9-5 (more like 7am to 7pm) job would do, I got my gear on and went for a walk to the beach in the snow. It was awesome, I laid down the first steps in the freshly laid snow and it was still falling heavy.  When I got ...
