Do You Miss The Lessons In Life?

Banding my head against the wall is normal for Michael The Traveling Trucker.

There are days I don’t even know my own name so to speak. People tell me things, sometimes I listen and sometimes not. Can you relate?

Mention: https://www.gettyimages.com/photos/missing-bus

We have all missed the bus at some point in our lives. Been late. Been miserable in the process. The RAT RACE at it’s worst.

Being a trucker has given me insight into a number of things. Meeting people and talking to them about their life and how it could change if they are willing.

What is one thing you really, really , really want to change in your life you know needs to change? Is it how many hours you work? Lack of quality time with family and friends? Not having enough money? Need repairs around the home place?

As we start our journey, please take notes. Leave yourself sticky notes. Leave an encouraging message to yourself on your phone.

I know from my own journey in life there comes a point where all you have been doing IS NOT SATISFYING ANY LONGER. You dream of better days ahead. You tell yourself, there has to be a better way.

If you are serious about being an ENTREPRENEUR-FIND A MENTOR. I have two who speak into my life to help me gain from life’s lessons. Always point me to my end goal, even when I don’t know what the end goal is.

Kool thing is they DO. They have been down the road long before I got here.

Lesson 1– Go to my resource page at the top. Look around. See what’s of interest.

Lesson 2– Take 5 minutes right NOW- Write down what you want. This is the groundwork for everything else. This step will guide you from now on.

Lesson 3–Remember I said find a mentor? This should be someone who will guide you and push you out of your COMFORT ZONE. Show them what you have written down. It’s called accountability.

Lesson 4–Find something of interest that will make you want to do this everyday. It must be enjoyable, fun and easy to share.

When you start believing in the little things, believing everyday that they will happen, something wonderful happens. Your heart grows strong, your spirit is sensitive and your mind dreams of glorious days of sunshine and laughter.

When you look back to see all the little things, you notice some really BIG things got accomplished.

I hope you copy this post. Put it on your wall. Keep a copy in your car. Read it EVERY DAY and say-“I CAN DO THIS”.

FOR ALL YOU DO -THIS ONES FOR YOU.

How To Visualize Your Dream

Hello Everyone. Michael The Traveling Trucker.

Truck, Driver, Transport, Traffic

I had a dream of driving a tractor/trailer for many years. I can see how God walked me through the process.

I had a 28foot house trailer, I pulled with a pickup truck. I learned how to back up. Learning to turn the wheels in the opposite direction of where you want the trailer to go.

Then I worked for a landscape company, pulling big equipment on a 38-foot trailer. Each increase in trailer size got me closer to driving my big rig.

I saw myself behind the wheel of my big rig. I knew I had what it takes. Every tractor/trailer I saw put that burning in my mind and soul.

Then it happened, I got my chance to drive. I knew how to drive a stick shift, but I had to learn to shift 10 gears instead of 5. I have been driving for 27 years now.

This visualizing process took about 10 years to come to completion, I knew it would. This is what has driven me for years to pursue my dreams.

If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse. ~ Walt Disney

Your life is too precious to be spent pursuing small dreams. Dream big so that you can reach your full potential. Answer this one question: “ What would you do if you took the fear out of the equation?

STOP HERE FOR A MINUTE. Really give yourself time to think about this.

You should make sure that you pursue the right dreams. You should make sure that your dreams are both fulfilling and meaningful.

Now I am being taught how to see my internet business as successful. I’m visualizing 1k per month in my bank account already. I’m seeing what I can do with that thousand dollars. ( Paying off some credit card debt.)

This is a kingdom principle. If you can’t see it, you will NEVER have it.

Can you see your DREAM? Is it a new house? How many bedrooms and bathrooms? What is the square footage? How much land is it sitting on?

Is it a new car? What is the make and model? What color is it? How many doors?

Get inspired by the stories of great people. This next point is crucial: WRITE YOUR DREAMS DOWN. Make a battle plan. Pay the price daily.

In working on your dreams, prepare yourself to meet difficulties. Expect challenges ahead. That way you won’t lose heart when difficulties come. You will be able to keep going.

Follow, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

There might be times when you seem to get stuck. You might see no meaningful progress for a long time. In such a situation, it’s tempting to just give up your dreams.

Don’t do that EVER. “Flat” season is normal. It’s something everyone must go through. Keep dreaming. Keep moving forward. You need to think about what you can improve, of course, but keep the fire burning within you. If you do that, a new season will eventually come where things get bright again.

I believe in YOU, READER. Let me help you to dream BIG. Let me see what you see so I can inspire you to keep your dream alive.

When the time comes to go after your dream, send naysayers to TIME OUT.

DREAMING BIG MAKES THE REWARDS ALL THE SWEETER

“LET IT BE KNOWN”

In the world around us, we all have hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Michael The Traveling Trucker is really a mess. No one needs to see your mess so, Each day I work hard to improve the quality of life for myself and those around me.

I read my Bible, 31 day of peace by Scott Reece, 31 days of Victory by Scott Reece. What are you putting into your mind daily ? Trash or Life?

Let’s look at where YOU need to START: Hebrew word: RAB. It means, abounding, more numerous than, abundant, more than enough, strong, exceeding.

Take time to get that into your spirit, soul, and body. When you believe it, speak it, walk in it, sing it, shout it, YOUR LIFE IS GOING TO CHANGE.

What Does Your Village Look Like?

Park you vehicle behind my rig, The one that Say’s Michael The Traveling Trucker. We will walk into the village together and see what we see.

Village, Lake, Mountain, Reflection

Think about this” It takes a whole village to raise a child”. That’s the way it used to be. We see this slipping away more and more.

Food for thought- There is the village idiot, village gossip, village drunk, and the village prostitute. Are these the type of influences we really want when it comes to raising our children?

There are the village shop keepers-butcher, baker and candle stick maker. Village elders, village mayor and hopefully the village spiritual leader, who is a man of Jehovah God.

When we look closely at these people, we can learn a lot when we ask questions.

If you want to run a business, whom do you ask? If you want to know more about God, whom do you ask?

If you want to run the daily activities of a village, whom do you ask?

Panorama, Village, Landscape

NOW FOR THE FUN PART.” It’s Your Village, How Do You See It? What leaders do you converse with? Who are your advisors and mentors? How do you handle the negative side of things going on in your village? ( idiot, gossip, prostitute, drunk).

I am building my village on firm foundational principles. Listening to leaders who have already built their villages. Don’t try to change things, just because they sound good. Mentors teach you because they know you have what it takes to run your village properly and successfully.

Show up daily. Put in the work. Show your villagers, they can trust you. Work with those that want to build up your village. You must put finance into your village.

Castle, Lake, Sailboat, Roofing

Advertise your village. Show the world, why your village is worth their time and effort to join you.

What offers are you sharing with your villagers? What value do you bring to your villagers? People really love being a part of a thriving village. There is safety, financial gains, laughing, loving, sharing life.

Do you need help building your village? Being a trucker, I can load my truck with the materials you need, to build a strong, vibrant, and prosperous village.

ARE YOU READY? GET BACK IN TOUCH WITH ME AND SAY” READY”.

Together, hand in hand, we will build a village that the world will stand in awe of. View my resource page for a glimpse of building materials.

HOW TO ACHIEVE GOAL SETTING 101

Hello and WELCOME, Michael The Traveling Trucker here. I believe that goal setting so is important.

Do you ever feel like you’re sleepwalking through life with no real idea of what you want? Perhaps you know exactly what you want to achieve, but have no idea how to get there.

I know for a lot of people, goal setting tends to get put on the back burner. People know what they want, but never write them out.

Goal setting involves planning for the future. Thinking positively about the future bolsters our ability to create goals and consider the actions required to achieve them.

Mention: https://pixabay.com/images/search/goals/

Destination, Goal, The Purpose

It helps you stay focused on what you want to accomplish, see how well you are doing moving toward your goals, then setting new ones once you finish your old ones.

One of my goals is to have a list of 2000 prospects by 5-1-2021. Making goals attainable is what will keep on putting in the daily work.

How big do you want your list? How long is it going to take you? Do you want to work with women or men or both? What age group? What geographical area?

Ready to get started, GREAT. You will need paper and pencil or pen. I’ll wait while you get them NOW. Glad you are back. Now time to write down specific items for your goals.

This is not a marathon, but slow simple steps.

Vision, Mission, Goal, Target, Business

Choose goals that are challenging. Choose and monitor both short-term and long-term goals. Keep goals consistent.

If the goal is too easy to complete, there’s little achievement in it. If you set exclusively easy goals for yourself, you will get bored and fall out of the habit of goal setting. The challenge is what makes results feel worthwhile and self-actualizing, and makes goal setting feel rewarding.

Through the experience of success and the positive emotions that accompany goal setting, confidence, and belief in our own abilities grow. If you can dream it, write it down, YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT.

Checklist, Goals, Box, Notebook, Pen

Five Principles of SUCCESSFUL Goal Setting

Commitment-Clarity-Challenge-Complexity-Feedback

Commitment refers to the degree to which an individual is attached to the goal and their determination to reach it, even when faced with obstacles. DO you really want to be successful in business and personal life?

Clarity-When a goal is vague, it has limited motivational value. Set clear, precise, and unambiguous goals that are implicit and can be measured. Have you written down YOUR GOALS?

Career, Success, Path, Stair

Challenging goals can improve performance through increased self-satisfaction, and the motivation to find suitable strategies to push our skills to the limit. Are you making your goals just out of reach so you have to stretch to ACHIEVE them?

Complexity-Even the most motivated of people can become disillusioned if the task’s complexity is too great for their skills. Allowing sufficient time to work toward a goal allows opportunities to reassess the goal complexity, whilst reviewing and improving performance. Are you making your goals so hard, that after a short time you give up?

Feedback– Feedback – including internal feedback – helps to determine the degree to which a goal is being met and how you are progressing. Feedback allows us to reflect upon our ability and set new, more attainable, goals. 

When we perceive our progress towards a goal as adequate, we feel capable of learning new skills and setting more challenging future goals.

I hope this helps. PLEASE WRITE YOU GOALS DOWN. KEEP THEM IN FRONT OF YOU. LOOK AT THEM EVERYDAY.

GOALS WILL GET YOU THERE FASTER, WHEN WRITTEN DOWN

Is your website flowing with content? If so, you will be best served through inline subscription forms.

Take advantage of the opportunity to target specifically those visitors that are highly engaged with your content.

Entice them with free updates if they subscribe. Once on your email list market offers related to your content and niche in order to convert them into customers. Nothing can beat that!

I did a study recently and we dug in deep to see how long it normally takes someone to buy from you once they’ve joined your list.

The fact is that the vast majority (almost 70%) of sales happened within the first seven to 14 days.

These are people who are getting on your list and are almost ready to buy. If you are putting them on your news letter and not making them offers, you are missing a golden opportunity.

It’s actually better to get your funnel set up way earlier because you don’t need to have a perfect launch, to have a perfectly profitable funnel.

Also, you’ve got this window where people get on your list and they are ready to buy.

Which is more effective cold calling or emailing?

Both have their strengths and weaknesses, but phone calls get higher response rates compared to emails. Generally, people are more likely to mark a cold email as spam even without reading it.

Creating a list, (your inner community) means having a group of engaged folks, who want to hear from you consistently.

They want to know what you know, and are looking out for all the things you’re doing that will help them to grow. Kind of wonderful, right?

So are you ready to have a community of followers that you love (and who love you!,) and who want to learn from you and hear what you’re up to?

There are locations on your blog that have proven to produce the most email subscriptions. Knowing where they are and how to use them is the first step towards building a huge email list.

The Exit Intent Popup

Exit intent technology allows you to have a popup that is completely unobtrusive. A popup using exit intent will only show up when the visitor moves their mouse towards the back button on the internet browser.

After the popup, the next best location is at the end of the post.

The visitors that have reached this point have shown they like your content. It is the perfect moment to ask them for their email. I have a form on my blog page.

Complimenting the Pop-Up With a Floating Footer

The footer is the third highest converting location for email subscriptions. Most email plugin tools will allow you to time the footer just like with the popup.

3 SECRETLY GUARDED MONEY MAGNETS

Hello Everyone. This is Your money magnet driver, Michael The Traveling Trucker.

Mention: https://pixabay.com/images/search/magnets/

Believe that you deserve Prosperity! To create a positive mindset regarding success and wealth, it’s vital that you believe in your heart and soul that you deserve it.

Let Go of Self-Limiting Thoughts! If you have trouble identifying and letting go of this negative energy, try positive affirmations. This involves the repetition of phrases like…“I have money, success, and happiness.” or “Money is flowing freely to me.”

Focus on Exactly What You Want. The most powerful way to attract money is to focus on the exact amount that you want. If you want a raise at work, concentrate on the exact amount ($1,000) or percentages (10% more). If you want a new car, you need to focus exactly what kind of car, down to the make, model, and color.

How do you view money? Do you have a money magnet imagination? Have you thought you are worthy of wealth?

Take the time right now to visualize what you really want.

What talks do you have within your mind when you see people who change their life phenomenally in a few years and live a luxurious life?

On the black sea highway, I find myself wondering HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE? Have You felt that way?

I’m your trucking host with the most, Michael the Traveling Trucker.

We hear” ARE WE THERE YET?” Most of the time the answer is NO, and we become impatient, dissatisfied, and rebellious, for it takes too long for things to happen.

I set up a new lead capture page, sent it out, and got immediate results. The contact was made and we had a good conversation. My prospect came to the Telegraph room and RobG took over. Through his leadership, an upgrade was made.

He shared with me, my prospect has been a part of the business since 2010 but had not logged in since 2015. How’s that for the long term? A 5-year HIATUS.

Keys, Open Locks, Security, Unlock

As ENTREPRENEURS, we never know which key will unlock the door for people to walk through, coming into our business world.

I heard Jon Olson say, He bought some crypto and forgot about it for years. Then he talked with a friend and was told the crypto he had was huge.

Strive to do your best each day. People you talk to might not be ready today, so you move on. They stay silent in the background, always watching. Then time goes by. When the time is right and they contact you, saying they are ready.

Most of the people aren’t ready, just looking they say. NEVER COUNT ANYONE OUT. Timing is everything, so be prepared to wait. Work with those that want what you have.

Man, Happy, Confused, In Love, People

Why waiting is beneficial and has beneficial factors. Priorities become clear. It produces Productive habits.

Tolerance and empathy helps people to wait and is a great humbler. A humble person is aware of the struggles of others and can empathize with their troubles. In short, waiting can make you a better person.

Labyrinth, Confusion, Confused, Way

Once you bend your head around the fact that waiting is your friend, and not your enemy, some important things will shift in your head.

Instead of being frustrated by delays, you can be grateful for them, make the most of each one and soar through your time of waiting.

On the other side of it, you will see how much has been grown in your character even though it felt like nothing was happening at the time. Now that is something to be grateful for.

Waiting Is A Good Thing
