Happiness is Not an Accident

Filed under: Free Tips — Saturday, February 9, 2013 @ 11:14 am

“People spend more time planning a vacation than they do their lives.” – Jim Rohn. You have to plan for Happiness too.

“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.”

< br/>

Happiness is on purpose. It requires a plan. Peace has a cost – sometimes it is real dollars, sometimes an opportunity cost, sometimes what you’re going to give up. But sometimes you have to give something up in order to get something better.

Change is not pain free either.




“Smile every chance you get. Not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don’t have.

Abe Lincoln said that you are as happy as you decide to be.

Never let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life. [source]

Strategies of Success by Tony Robbins

Filed under: coaching,Free Tips,Strategy — Sunday, June 17, 2012 @ 12:24 pm

In the LIFECLASS with OPRAH & TONY ROBBINS, Tony Robbins explains the 3 steps for you to have success. Robbins points out that today we have a ton of opportunity to achieve success. There are thousands of mentors, HOW-TO’s, teachers online. There are hundreds of teachers and schools in real life (IRL).

A couple of quotes from Tony:

  • Difficult moments don’t define you
  • What story are you telling yourself?
  • Challenge yourself to change
  • You have a Habit – of complaining, of being unhappy.
  • It’s time to Own a New Story!
  • Motion affects Emotion

3 Steps to Success

  1. Strategy – have a strategy, change your story and develop a quality state
  2. Story – change the story you tell yourself (Belief system)
  3. State of Mind – develop a quality state of mind as it determines the story; “Get in the HABIT of a quality state”

The Photographer’s Story

Filed under: branding,Free Tips,seth,Strategy,Unique Ideas — Friday, May 18, 2012 @ 1:25 pm

Seth Godin gave us this story about Photographers. There is not a camera problem in the US. Ask Kodak. Every cell phone has a camera built right in.

Facebook paid $1B for Instagram, a photo app, because FB is a photo sharing website. Flickr and all the rest just missed the boat.

Seth Godin talks about Industrial Photography as a way to express that most customers cannot distinguish between photographers. If the customer cannot differentiate, it is a commodity.

How are commodities chosen? It will come down to one picture the customer likes of yours (if they can find one), or a referral; otherwise it comes down to the price.

To be Annie Leibovitz or Jill Greenberg, you have to extend your art – and make lots of photographs that people hate. So that some will pay a lot for your photos to stand out.

Seth says, “You have to go to the edges.”

Otherwise, you have to re-package the way you sell photos. Like a baby’s first year of photos, as many as you like for $99 a year. Come into the studio with any appointment and we shoot your baby.

Another suggestion is to read this book: Fast Track Photographer.

You are going to have to put on a show. Create scarcity.
