I find myself in a low value head space a little too often, mostly in the morning. It´s like "dude you suck because of this and this". And those are actual real reasons too.
I usually spend the first hour of all my days in that mode. It´s obviously not good for me in any way even though it is just an hour a day.

How do I correct these thoughts?

How about listening to comedy or something inspiring like RSD videos?

March results

I didn´t do much at all cause the thesis took all my time.
IM
Adsense: 154,43 €
Affiliates:
- Trade Tracker: 235,92€
- Trade Doubler: 511,95  (the one 464€ sale made this happen)
E-book: 75€

= 977,30€

That´s awesome. Unfortunately this was just a lucky month. That one 464€ sale made half of the income. And what´s worse I havent sold much in weeks now.
What´s good though is now I will have more time to work on learning to get better at SEO and put up more sites. And get clients which is what I really want to do.
And hopefully get a job at an SEO firm or do what Becker is doing now, do stuff for the SEO companies and get paid massive amounts.


PICKUP
Struggled with motivation when I was out. Only went out once a week to save money and work on thesis.
The plan has been to save this stuff for the second half of the year. Work on it hardcore then. (Hoping to get financial side handled before that to make life situation optimal for going out)

Thanks guys!

My mom just called and as always she makes me realize harsh facts about my situation.

I need to have 200 hours of work done for my practical for school by the end of April.
I counted that I have 18 days to get the 200 hours of work done + I need to do one assignment by then too
This is going to be a real challenge.

Good news and bad news.

I returned my thesis to my teacher and she sent me an email and basicly said it sucked. So that means a lot of work.
(Btw when I got the email the negative emotion I got from that was massive. Luckily i remembered Brad´s genius thought: look at this situation from like 10 years from now. Will it matter? Has it actually helped you?)

The good news is I got more time to get my work part for the school done. It doesnt have to done by May. I only have return the reports by the end of May. Awesome!

Pickup thoughts:
Went out last friday as always. Ended up doing nothing. Took it as a reminder that if I go into a bar feeling positive and yeah I do something - I wont do anything. I need a plan to stick to.
Force myself to always do a quick set by at least 00.00. Preferably as soon as I enter the bar. And it has to be a real approach (not just throwing a comment or saying hi to a girl next to me).
I think going out more will solve this issue once I get to it.

When it comes to general views of yourself by the way, I think that Alex´s thought "I am not UNattractive" is genious. It makes you confident, not arrogant. It does not really need external evidence either.

IM
Just found this site full of the best web directories. It´s old school but it still works.
All the major SEO companies have their links there.
http://www.yourwebgurus.com/top_seo_directories.html (only the 1st turned out to be good) and www.directorycritic.com/free-directory-list.html


Mmmm.. so sexy ;)

I haven´t updated this in a while..

I got sick again. (no money -> no fruits and veggies) And lost 1 week.


(Jobs was great at presenting Apple´s products. I think it was because he was genuinely excited about their awesomeness.)

The latest book I read was one that consisted of Steve Jobs´ quotes. I also watched his interviews on youtube and some of the Apple product launches he did.
I love his ideology behind Apple. To make the best products for people. That´s it. He had so much passion and excitement for what he did. He wanted to change the
world with those products and he actually sort of ended up doing exactly that.

I love it that when people asked him about business strategies etc. he just said "We don´t care, we just want to make good products."

I want to do thing his way too :)

Not change the world but make such a good product that people get excited by it.
So right now I aim to make my SEO service awesome all the way. Not just try to selfishly make money.
Actually provide people a service that saves their business or takes it to a
new level and that is a better experience than the competetors´. 

On a smaller scale:
I want my website to get a "WOW" effect and make my sales visits nice and warm + useful to them.

This Steve Jobs quote resonated with me:
"People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you’re doing and it’s totally true. And the reason is because it’s so hard that if you don’t, any rational person would give up. It’s really hard. And you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don’t love it, if you’re not having fun doing it, you don’t really love it, you’re going to give up. And that’s what happens to most people, actually. If you really look at the ones that ended up, you know, being “successful” in the eyes of society and the ones that didn’t, oftentimes, it’s the ones [who] were successful loved what they did so they could persevere, you know, when it got really tough. And the ones that didn’t love it quit because they’re sane, right? Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don’t love it?

So it’s a lot of hard work and it’s a lot of worrying constantly and if you don’t love it, you’re going to fail."



This has been the over-arching problem during this whole thread. From now on I aim to keep my excitement for what I´m going for and want to do with my business. It´s the easiest way to be successful.

(btw Google doesnt stop surprising me. My company website was on page 30. I wasnt able to get it higher for some reason until now it jumped 24 pages up in one day.)

(That was grand)


I don´t always want to end up on the top of Field Reports when this thread is not even about trying to get in girls´ pants, so once again
edit:
null

By the way. Right now working on that last course I have left. Then I will try to finish the thesis ie. fix everything that went wrong.
A bit dissapointed since 3 months have gone by and I have nothing finished.
But I will soon. This is tough.

Damn, I will love to read this if I reach all my goals.

Back to meditation now. I stopped doing it and it shows as my mind wonders everywhere all the time. Not able to work effectively.
