A Goal Worth What I Want

Just beginning in the organization and opening this new blog I feel I need to have a massive goal.  Taking action has always been something that I preach.  To take action in this network I need something so big that I haven’t done anything close to this before.  It will not only be writing.  With as much as I love writing I think this is going to take more.

Challenging youself is always so important.  No matter your situations there is always a higher goal or a way to better yourself.  If you are not challenging yourself what is the point of living.  Amazing things can happen when you feel yourself becoming more of who you are.

Aiming high will allow you to challenge yourself.  Who cares if you do not make the goal.  If you never aim for it you will never reach it.  Say you make a goal to do something in 6 months.  Even if you do not hit that goal in 6 months and it takes you a year, guess what you just made your goal.  Even better is when you make that 6 month goal and it takes you 3 months.  That is always the better surprise.

For my massive goal I want to make a video every day for 365 days.  I have no idea what I am going to talk about, most likely what I write about, success, but I want to produce massive results.  If you want to join me feel free.  If you want to follow me feel free.  If you want to connect with me feel free.

Thanks,

Matthew Collinson

The Story about My Partner

Valentine 2014

I have the best story in the world.  It started in tragedy.  My heart had been broken.  I felt down on my luck and I was angry.  I made a lot of new friends because my old ones and I fell out of contact due to my ex never wanting me to go out, or so I felt but there was such a lack of communication even if she didn’t care, I felt she did at the time.  This was alright.

I met someone who became my best friend.  Her name was Sarah.  Even while we were both dating other people we would tell each other stories.   We would go see movies or just hang out after work.  She became such a good friend that I already loved her in one aspect.  After a while of us both dating people with little luck of finding that right relationship it turned into almost a movie.

One day when we were talking on the phone I said, “F*** this, I am tired of being run over and you don’t seem to be having much more luck.  I say we drop our current people we are dating and we should be together.”  She was completely up for it.  So we did exactly that.  Each of the other people we were dating were not pleased but we decided that we would be together.  It turned into complete magic.

She is the most wonderful person.  Although we do not agree on everything in our lives we agree that we would do it together.  No matter what the circumstance I know she is always there.  She will have my back even when I make mistakes.  There is no one I could have asked for that could be more perfect for me.  In fact, the first time that I knew I had fallen in love with her was when she was cuddling with me one day and I fell asleep in her arms and I could not remember ever doing that with another woman.  I felt protected as much as I would protect her.  I have no explanation for this but it was like lightning had struck.

Sometimes we just have to look right in front of us to find what we are looking for.  I have never had such a complete life.  She makes everything better.  Her smile brings a smile to my face.  Her sadness is my sadness.   Her pain is my pain.  Her happiness is my happiness.  We together make a whole that chooses to do everything together because it makes the world seem a brighter place.  I enjoy her company.  She calms my soul more than I would normally be without her.  I have the same effect on her.

Life with my partner is wonderful.  I wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day my love.

Influence

Influence

Success can become ours with the help of others.  Listening to others and feeling other people’s thoughts and feelings will bring you to the success you wish.  To be genuinely interested in other people will help to become friends with others.  Friends will do almost anything for real friends.  Because of this if they see you have a problem but you never talk about it and always wonder after their feelings, thoughts will occur to that person to help you.

Think about what you want out of life.  I ask this a lot.  Now think of those that have success in that part of their life.  If you want something from someone becoming interested in the needs of that person is necessary.  This will allow you to develop a relationship with that person.  By developing and allowing the friendship to thrive you will soon learn what you need to be successful.

It will not matter if it is money, relationships or any other part of life this can work.  Do you think you can learn a lot from a person who makes the amount of money you want?  Do you think you can learn a lot from a person who has the type of relationships you want?  I believe wholeheartedly that if you become friends with those people you will soon take on certain characteristics of that person.  By opening your mind and seeing, truly seeing, what that person feels and does you will find what you need.  Keep those relationships whole.  You may learn even more than you wanted.

Meditation

This is one of the most unique exercises that I wish to write about tonight as it can relate to success.  When a person meditates they can clear their head.  When the head has cleared all of the bad “stuff” out and all of the noise that goes on up there new ideas and functions can occur.  The human mind is an amazing tool that we under-utilize every day.  There is no telling how far a person can go if they can unlock even a few of the secret areas of the mind.

Success can begin to occur with the help of meditation.  By allowing your mind to clear, whatever you choose to concentrate on for the successful part of your life, not only will new ideas occur to you on how to become successful in that area but you will also concentrate better throughout the days.  As problems occur within your day you should feel more control over yourself and your emotions.  This will allow you to make better decisions.

If you can do meditations 10 minutes a couple times a day I think you would see a large change in your mindset.  Remember to breathe in good and breathe out the bad.  Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.  One goal of meditation is to get longer and longer breaths.  As you deepen these breaths the further into your mind you will go.  One ultimate goal of people who meditate is to clear the head completely.  No thoughts coming in and no thoughts going out.  This helps the mind to rest and to build where it needs to improve your thought process.

Getting Along With Others

elevator-for-blog

Part of success is learning how to get along with people.  One of my favorites is Dale Carnegies, How to Win Friends and Influence People.  One of the key points that it explains is that if you want something in your life sometimes you have to get other people to do what you want.  To get people to do what you want a person must find what it is that those people want.  People have to want to do something to help you.

Many people live their lives day to day.  If you are reading this it is because there is an area of your life that you want to be more successful in.  Always strive for that want.  Make it a need.  Part of being successful is finding someone who is already successful in that area of their life and doing similar, if not exactly, what that person does.  How are you going to convince a person to take time with you?

This will require finding what it is the person would like to have or want.  They obviously have something you want.  Do some digging.  Talk to the person as a friend might.  Do not worry about what it is they have that you want.  This will come with time when they may be willing to spend more time with you like going out for coffee or going to a bar.  The problem I have heard people run into is what if you will never meet the person or what if you will only run into the person once.

Here is the solution.  First dig into the person’s life.  Read all of the books they have written.  Watch what they do and how they act.  If you have a chance to run into the person you will need to convince them in 30 seconds or less.  This is where a great elevator speech comes into play.  Be sincere and honest.  Tell the person exactly what you want and they may be willing to spend some time with you.  It has be precise and practiced.  Do it in front of a mirror or on video so that you can analyze and rewrite if need be.  This is one great way to influence a person to do what you want and that is normally spend time with you.

I hope this helps a few of you.  Let me know if you want to hear about anything specific.

On a side note I recently opened up a website that you are most welcome to come and visit.  It has unique shopping deals and offers other advice for success although that section is limited as the site just opened.  http://superneatdeals.com.

 

Imagination and Success

imaginationImagination is one important tool that we all have.  If you have lost your imagination you should find it again.   It does not matter what field you are in, writing, science or even a secretary, if you use your imagination you could get ahead in your career or business.  Think about it a moment.  If you think of something brand new, that has not been thought of before, new breakthroughs can happen.

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” ~Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein is known as one of the great minds of our time.  What made the difference between him and you?  Brain power maybe, concentration definitely, but most of all he was able to imagine something completely different than what had been thought about previously.  This is important for anyone in any field.

One exercise to help you increase your imagination is to concentrate on a certain subject or an object.  Let your mind take hold.  It will transform the subject or object into something different a lot of times.  This can be difficult so if you can concentrate for about 10 minutes on the single subject and write down a few notes on a blank sheet of paper you can begin your journey to using your imagination for success.

Part of using your imagination is ending the beliefs that you cannot do something.  You are a human being and should take more credit for what you have been given.  Here is a tool you can use to help End Limiting Beliefs.

Here are a few ways you may use your imagination in your current job.  Find a way to change something that everyone seems to complain about.  If you can find a solution to a problem that people are having you have struck gold within yourself and your imagination.  A scientist may take a different approach on a theory he or she was having.  You have to learn how to go outside of your limited box.  We all seem to put some form of limit on ourselves.

As far as an exercise today I want you to try a writing exercise, even if you are not a writer.  Set a three minute limit whether it is on your phone, watch or microwave.  Then you just start writing every thought that enters you head.  You will be surprised how much comes out of your thought process.

I hope you enjoyed this post today.  Please leave a comment below if you have any questions or thoughts.
