Ever since the end of bartering, people have searched for some simple steps to become rich. A little research – by which I mean using myself as a guinea pig – has led me to discover that there is such a way and that all those who use it have three things in common…
In short, these are:
1. Belief without doubt…
2. A sense of worthiness…
3. The willingness to take inspired action…
Before I explain those, however, we must define “easy.” I have seen fire eaters who make their act look easy, but I’m extremely certain that it isn’t, so I won’t be trying that anytime soon.
Could we agree that “easy” means a way of attracting wealth which feels enjoyable, works consistently well, and is fast? Sure, it’s not an exact science, but then when it comes to attracting money, it’s not a science anyway is it?
Of the three elements which comprise our easy way to attract money, none is more or less important than the other. You must have ALL THREE in place, and when you do, you will attract money a lot easier than you have ever done before! (I can certainly promise you this from my personal experience…)
The first element is belief.
You must believe that you have the ability to attract money. That sounds obvious, but in fact a lot of people who say they believe they could attract money fill their minds with doubts and misgivings by checking how the majority of their friends and peers are doing financially.
Instead, they go back to their personal treadmill, shaking their heads and saying it can’t be done.
The second element in our easy way to attract money is your sense of worthiness.
You have to know in your heart that you deserve more money. In order to do that, you’ll need to honor your uniqueness and feel deep within you that you have something of value to contribute just by being you!
The more you can value yourself in your mind, the more you’ll be able to “sell” your passion and offer great value doing so – which in the end is what people pay for.
The third of our elements is to take action.
Although I said that all three are required to complete the formula for the easy way to attract money, there is a reason why I’ve left this one until last.
We’re conditioned to think that a lot of activity – usually labeled as “hard work” – is what’s needed to get money. We usually call this “earning” it.
On the other hand, there’s a terrible misunderstanding about the “law of attraction” which is that merely visualizing wealth will bring it to you.
In truth, you must take action too – but that action needs to be inspired by the belief and the sense of worthiness I’ve mentioned above.
The key to the easy way to attract money is to feel good about yourself, truly know in your heart of hearts that you’re worthwhile, and then act on the ideas that pop up – which is sometimes called “inspiration.”
If feeling good, liking yourself and trusting your heart feels like hard work to you then I’m sorry for misleading you. On the other hand, if you like these ideas, then you have finally stumbled onto a way you can actually use to attract money!
These three steps have served me extremely well for many years now. And I highly encourage you to explore them and see how they work for you too.
I suggest you write the three elements down – post them up onto your wall – or somewhere you can see them, and remind yourself to move closer to living and breathing these three critical “attraction” elements each day.
The rewards you’ll see are well worth it!

Get outside and sit on a bench or a blanket and let your mind get quiet so your senses engage. If you’re somewhere colder in the world, rug up and go for a nice walk.
Engaging your senses is such a powerful and easy way to relax but we often don’t take the time to consciously do it.
One of the hardest things for people to do is quiet their mind. But boy is it so important for our relaxation. Try and get out of your head, look around you, take notice of things and simply… be… present. This will do wonders for your mind and your happiness.
3. Relish scents.
There’s nothing like an amazing smell to instantly change your state. Showering in lavender or peppermint body wash will instantly relax you, or burning a scented candle will make you feel amazing.
So tell me…
What will you do this weekend to relax and rejuvenate?
~*To Your Success*~
It’s not such an odd question when you stop to think about it.
Like all living creatures, we’re “hard wired” for survival so on the face of it, it seems absurd that we’d do things to ourselves that compromise that – let alone the quality of life we tell ourselves we want!
Bad habits of the self-sabotaging variety, can keep us stuck in poor relationships, in jobs we dislike, or at a financial level we can’t seem to rise above. Addictions may threaten our very existence.
The mystery of habits – good or bad – becomes clear when you understand what we subconsciously believe “survival” to be…
Remember, as a human being, from the moment you pop into the world, you’re dependent on at least one other person for your continued existence. No human baby would survive unattended.
As “the naked ape” we’re vulnerable to climate and all kinds of environmental threats too, even when we’re grown up.
In other words, we need each other. Primitive people realized instinctively that staying together as tribes and families meant more successful hunting and more likelihood that infants would survive.
Of course, we don’t live in a world where those are obvious threats. But instinctively we still know that sticking together is the best thing for us.
So what if you come from a “tribe” whose common belief is “dreams don’t come true”? …and that hard work is the only way to get to retirement in one piece?
Or what if your peers, maybe even your lover, all agree that imbibing mind-altering substances is the only way to live, man?
Your instinct will be to follow those beliefs or behaviors because not doing so means breaking away from the “tribe” – and your instinct tells you that’s dangerous!
Your first step to freedom from these, or any other negative habits, then is to becomeaware of them.
You will easily accomplish this once you allow the nagging doubt you feel inside – that this isn’t right for you – to have a voice. Just pay attention to it and listen.
Second, look for role models who’ve already broken free and who have succeeded, preferably in an area of life you want to succeed in too. As the great Anthony Robbins is fond of reminding us, “Success leaves clues.” You will soon see that there are plenty of healthy “tribes” you can join.
Third, make a clean, swift break. This is one area of life where “he (or she) who hesitates is lost” definitely applies. If you follow the “look before you leap” crowd, the chances are you won’t leap – then or possibly ever.
Once you do, you’ll be surprised at how many people will follow your example.
Finally – and this is most important of all – don’t beat yourself up, either for whatever you’ve been doing or for not changing sooner.
It takes courage and insight to change and although virtually everybody has those capabilities hardly anyone will use them.
You’ve just broken free of the crowd as well as the bad habit they carried as a culture. As such, you’ve marked yourself out as a leader.

P.S. Please let me know how you go with the steps…as always, I love hearing from you…
The Top 7 Online Marketing Trends That Will Dominate 2014
1. Content Marketing Will be Bigger Than Ever
One of the main ways that companies are establishing authority and gaining trust with consumers is by consistently creating valuable content through a variety of channels..By using one or more of these channels, businesses are able to build a positive reputation within their industry. This trend suggests that marketing to the masses through techniques like television ads and radio ads are becoming less effective. Instead, it’s better to concentrate on inbound marketing, by producing valuable, engaging content designed for a specific audience.
2. Social Media Marketing Will Require More Diversity
Just a few years ago, businesses were limited with regard to the social media networks they could implement into their marketing campaigns, with the biggies including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Now, it seems like new social media sites are appearing all the time. Consequently, it has become common for businesses to branch out and experiment with multiple networks with the aim of reaching the maximum amount of consumers. This diversification seems to prove fruitful for many companies because it often builds brand equity by making it easier for consumers to recognize a particular brand.
3. Image-Centric Content Will Rule
As consumers are hit with an increasing number of advertisements, it’s becoming more important to make content easily and quickly digestible.
Successful blog posts that receive the most social shares also usually have a common characteristic: they pepper in some well-placed pictures to break content up and emphasize certain points. Another example is infographics, which combine images with a minimal amount of text to explain a topic and provide statistical information or data from research studies.
4. Less Will be More
One notable trend is the apparent shift in consumer preference regarding simplistic marketing messages instead of in-depth messages. When you think about some of the top brands in the world like Apple and Google, they clearly value simplicity.
With many consumers feeling burned out by a constant barrage of information and advertisements that scream “look at me”, some of the most innovative marketers are going the opposite direction. The’re now making efforts to tone-down their campaign messages and not overwhelm consumers with hype.
Perhaps an article by Forbes said it best: “there is a sense that from the hyper-connectivity of our highly-digitized lives to the bright, flashy, complicated sensory input we’re fed everyday, there is no way to continue at this pace. As a result, 2013 is likely to be a year where the most successful marketing strategies will be ones that are not only simple in nature, but promote goods and services that serve to simplify the consumer’s life, or even just their customer experience.”
5. Mobile-Friendly Content Will Be Necessary
Due to the widespread (and quickly growing) use of smartphones and tablets, it’s necessary for companies to create content that’s accessible to mobile users. According to Forbes, “87% of connected devices sales by 2017 will be tablets and smartphones.” it’s important to provide a positive experience to users that are browsing via a mobile device.
Otherwise, it’s easy to lose customers to competitors who have adapted to this trend. As the shift from traditional PCs and laptops to mobile devices continues, businesses that aren’t onboard are likely to suffer
6. Ad Retargeting Will Grow in Effectiveness
This is a marketing strategy that has really caught on recently. In a nutshell, it works by utilizing browser cookies to track the websites that users visit.
It’s fairly obvious as to why this technique can be so effective. With only two percent of web traffic converting on the first visit, ad retargeting works to increase the overall conversion rate by reminding consumers of the product or service they viewed. This keeps the brand and the product at the top of the consumer’s mind. There are even psychological studies that have shown that simple exposure to brand names and logos creates familiarity, which builds trust and makes consumers more likely to make a purchase.
Even if there’s no immediate purchase, this can really pay off in the long run. Due to the success that many marketers have had with ad retargeting, there’s a good chance that it will become more mainstream in 2014.
7. SEO and Social Signals Will Become Even More Intertwined
Although social signals still don’t typically carry the same weight as traditional inbound links, it’s pretty undeniable that they play a role in organic search rankings these days.
The more people that are sharing a piece of content, the higher quality it’s likely to be, and therefore its position should increase within the search engine results pages. It’s no coincidence that the top-ranking search results tends to have lots of social shares, while those ranked lower have fewer.
Besides this, social shares can serve as a stamp of approval (ie, a trust signal) for visitors landing on a page. If they see that it has hundreds or thousands of shares, it’s likely that there’s something of value. That’s a big reason why so many businesses are installing social share plugins and encouraging consumers to share as much as possible.
While it’s difficult to predict algorithms will evolve in the future, there’s a reasonable chance that social shares will match or even outweigh traditional inbound links by the end of 2014.
One thing I have learned about online marketing is it is continually changing and if you don’t keep up it will pass you by and so will your income…the beauty of Empower Network is, it is NEVER STAGNENT..it keeps evolving which will allow your business, whatever it may be to keep growing with what works TODAY…
I believe in You…Have a Great Day!
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie~
Wishing ALL and their loved ones the Happiest Of Thanksgivings!
