Success is Yours

Success is yours for the taking.  

What is your definite of success?    The Definition of Success can be different for everyone.

Happiness + Constant Improvement + Contribution = Success  (The Minimalists)

Favorable Achievement, Good Fortune (Webster Dictionary)

The most important thing to finding your success is to know the meaning of success in your personal life.  The true definition or meaning of success goes way beyond the common definitions of success, such as having a lot of money, being wealthy, having a lot of tangibles and earned degrees.  

Most of us are looking for the best way and potentially the easiest way to become successful in business, whether we are working the typical 9-5 job, the job of our dreams or working from home in our pajamas while we make money online.   But is that really success if you alone with no one to share it with? 

You cannot measure true success in life with the above named factors, but instead with the amount of people that are able to live a better and more advanced life because of what you created.   It cannot be measured by the number of trophies people are collecting in their lives. Media and society lets us often conclude that living a successful life means to be extraordinarily wealthy and have a lot of tangibles. But the meaning of success is to live a happy life and to make this world a better place for everyone.

To Laugh

To laugh often and much,to win respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Financial Freedom

FINANCIAL SECURITY— WHAT IS IT?  What does Financial Freedom look like to you?   PiggyBank

Financial Freedom to me, means that I will always have enough money. Having enough would mean never having to worry about how the bills are going to be paid, or if I can afford to do something for enjoyment with my family and friends.  Does that mean that I have to be a millionaire?  A billionaire?  

Cute story for you:  “Once there was a man, who made a wish to always have enough.  His wish came true.  Although as he traveled, he never had a bit of money, however when it was time to pay the bill, whether for food, lodging, or transportation, he always had enough.  As he needed to pay his bill, he always had the exact amount needed.”

I see this as financial security and freedom.  Do I want to be a millionaire?  Not necessarily, but I do want to always “have enough”.

Understanding Affiliate Marketing

There is so much to learn about Affiliate marketing so that you can make money online.  There are good ones, there are ones that are not so good.  


  1. Having a proven product that you can sell online
  2. No need to carrying an inventory
  3. No shipping hassles
  4. No return challenges
  5. Knowing your purchases are taken care of

When you have a product and company that you can trust and does have your best interest at heart, you know you can support them and help them be profitable as well.  To be part of an larger company that loves having affiliate marketers on their team, can be a rewarding experience.  You receive a commission on products that they ship, they service and take back as a return if necessary.  You are simply marketing their product on a broader scope to help them make money online.  You, in turn, make money online because you receive a commission for doing a good job.  


  1. Hidden fees
  2. Upfront costs
  3. Terms and conditions
  4. All of the dos and don’ts

Some affiliate programs out there will request that you pay upfront a cost.  This cost/fee can be minimal, but can also be very costly.    Sometimes, there are hidden fees.  After you pay the upfront money, you find that in order to continue to have the program, you continue to pay.    Also be sure to read the terms and conditions that can sometimes “read like a book”.  You may need a lawyer to decipher some of the language for you.  Lastly, by reading the terms and conditions of your affiliate program, be sure you have a clear understanding of what you can and cannot do.  Marketing a certain way, using certain photos, etc.; this can cause fines, or disqualify you for the commission that you worked so hard to get.  


Being an affiliate can be a great thing if you investigate and know what company you are assisting in selling their products.  There are some great companies out there that provide ample information and great benefits to be an affiliate for them.    I’ve written a review about several affiliate programs of which I participate.  Take a look and let me know your thoughts.    Check out my blog posts about the various affiliate program reviews here

Amazon, Swagbucks and Wealthy Affiliate have been proven to be great opportunities.   


I appreciate all feedback, as possibly you have had some experience with another affiliate, whether good or bad.  Thank you for your time.

Fear of Failure

Fear-of-Change Finger nail biterWhat do we have to fear, but fear itself????  Right…. we have a lot of fear and we let fear drive us.  But what path does fear drive you down.  Are you heading for failure because you let fear take you there?  Are you heading for success because you direct your fear differently. 

Don’t let fear get the best of you, but use your fear to get you where you want to go. 


Some fear that we have are:

              Afraid to be taken advantage of 

How often have you taken the risk to help someone or even yourself because you really felt that it was the best deal for everyone, yet…. to your disappointment you are left feeling used, abused and taken advantage of.  Some in those pyramid scams make success on the backs of others.  It’s not right, but they don’t care because they only care about themselves and not about everyone else. 

Afraid that we will lose money in our quest for success

We have often times bought into a scam, a pyramid, or other venture driving for success, to only realize that there is no real value in the venture, in the scam and you only lose valuable time and money

Afraid of ridicule

What will your family think?  What will your friends say?  How hard are you on yourself.  When you start off, trying to make a better future, others are jealous and they attempt to sway you away from the prize.  Worse yet, especially when you have enter into one of those scams, you have nothing to fight back with, nothing to explain how you can be better and make a better life.  How do you prove to them, that it can work, when you haven’t convinced yourself?


Try, try and try again, but this time, join a team, be an affiliate and have a community of teammates to help you succeed.  YOU CAN DO IT, and WE, the team can and will help you.  Try it out now, but this time, try it for free and don’t pay anything until you feel that this is your niche!
