How To Train Your Mind To Be Positive (using the 4 P's)

Tufted vetch.



In today's training video I'm going to show you how to train your mind to be positive!
The quality of your personal or professional life is largely determined by the quality
of the emotional states you live in day to day -- states like love, anger, happiness,
hopeless, fear and confidence.
There are a few things that affect the quality of your life quicker than developing a positive attitude and training your mind to be positive. 
The challenge is "positive attitude" seems a bit soft, wooly, fluffy and easy to dismiss. 
In the real world (especially the corporate world) "attitude" rarely carries the same weight as words like "skill" and "knowledge" and "work ethic."
Researchers (people much cleverer than me!) are proving otherwise. Learning how your mind works and how to incorporate positive thoughts and emotions can help improve many areas, including health, work, family and social relationships.
If emotions you are experiencing in any area of your life are make you miserable,
you can get in control of them. Your thinking causes you to feel certain emotions,
and your thinking is something you can control.
What you can't control are the setbacks and knock-backs life brings.
Controlling your emotions simply means that you will be able to deal with them better
because your emotions will not make the matters worse.
Being able to train your mind to be positive means that you are in control.
You are in control of how effectively you function and more importantly,
how you feel, regardless of the events around you.
Operating at your ultimate mindset will having you taking your life to the next level.
Your creative ideas will multiply.
Your abilities to achieve will multiply. Your communication with the world will multiply.
Your relationships will multiply. Everything you do, you will do that much better.
Dedicate training your mind to be positive by the day using the 4 P's (explained in the video).
It will drive you like nothing else can. Knowing that you can elevate your emotional state
at anytime is a powerful feeling. It will empower you like nothing else can.
Plus (and it's a big plus) focused positive thinking, over time, will influence your subconscious
so accessing a positive state becomes automatic.

What could be better than that!!!
Enjoy today's training.

The 7 Key Mindset Changes for Shifting from Passive Idleness to Active Readiness

Stopping power.

The 7 Key Mindset Changes for Shifting from Passive Idleness to Active Readiness 
Eric Ravenscraft

Everyone’s heard the old adage, practice makes perfect. Practice isn’t just for building skills, though. It’s also for maintaining the ones you’ve already built.
As advice site The Art of Manliness explains, the skills you have already built can fade over time. Through disuse and neglect, your brain can start to forget even the most well-practiced skills
if you go a long period of time without using them. It doesn’t happen overnight,
but practicing a little bit every once in a while can stave off the erosion of useful skills:
We often feel like we can leave parts of ourselves dormant, and they’ll just stay as they are — waiting for us to start developing them again. But the truth is that all the components
of our physical and mental make-up operate by the “use it or lose it” principle.
All of life involves swimming against the current of deterioration —
if you’re not constantly putting in the effort to advance, you’re getting swept back.
Of course, we can only choose so many skills to practice, so it may be a valid choice
to let a particular skill die off. As much as I enjoyed the game as a kid, my skills playing
Jet Force Gemini are not very practical to my adult life.
However, if you want to keep your ability to play that instrument, do that workout,
or speak that language, you should probably keep practicing even when you don’t need to.

To Get Inspired, Sometimes You Need to Give Up

Worn wood.

To Get Inspired, Sometimes You Need to Give Up
Eric Ravenscraft

You’ve been staring at a blank page for hours. No matter how hard you think,
you just can’t make the brilliant ideas appear. It’s time to give up, and that’s okay.
As business site Entrepreneur explains, inspiration doesn’t work on a schedule
(and there’s plenty of science to back that idea up). Your brain can’t be forced to come up
with a stellar idea. Trying to coerce your mind into trying, however, can hold you back.
If you want to encourage the good ideas, get comfortable with giving up:
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stared at a blank screen, a white sheet of paper
or a media board and racked my brain for a big idea that just wouldn’t come.
Finally, I give up, plop down in a chair and say, “Screw it, I’m done.’’ It takes a while for my mind
to shut off, but when it does, that’s inevitably when the answer comes.
Any good creative knows that ideas can come at the least opportune times.
The trick is getting into the habit of allowing them to happen naturally.
Sometimes that means you just stop working for the day, give up on being “productive”
and let your mind wander. Adhering to a rigid set of rules doesn’t always guarantee brilliance.
Let yourself have space to give up for a while and you may find your ideas come more naturally
in a relaxed state. Don’t forget to have a way to write them down when they happen, too.

8 Tips for Finding Focus and Nixing Distractions

Welsh poppies are either yellow or orange.

8 Tips for Finding Focus and Nixing Distractions
Matthew Toren

Do you find yourself getting to the end of the day and wondering where the time went?
Maybe you started out prepared to accomplish some very specific tasks,
but somehow you just didn't get to them. Putting out fires and dealing with lesser issues
can pull people away from longer-term goals.
But if that happens every day, chances are you won't be in business much longer.
Here are eight ways to prevent letting distractions damage your productivity:

1. Make and post a list: 
There's no point in making a list if it ends up under all of your unopened mail at the end of the day. Post it right where you will see it every time you look up, answer the phone or turn
to your computer. By keeping it within your field of sight you can also keep it top-of-mind.

2. Shut your door: 
I know this seems like the opposite of good management practice.
Aren't you supposed to be available to employees when they have a problem?
Well, if you aren't focusing on your business they will definitely have a problem –
- finding another job. Right now as an entrepreneur it's company first, employees second.
And maybe if they can't reach you they will take some initiative and solve their own problems.

3. Stand up when someone comes into your office: 
This means that your visitor can't sit down and most people will get tired of standing
and leave when their business with you is done. If someone is particularly long-winded despite standing, come around your desk and walk them out the door and down the hall.
Then excuse yourself and head back to your office.

4. Limit outside attention grabbers: 
How often do you check email, Facebook, your cellphone? Do you take your own calls
or leave that to a front-office person? Can potential suppliers get instant access to you
when they walk in your office door? Every one of these is pulling you away from
your main business. Schedule specific times to address these outside issues
so that you have uninterrupted time to do your real job.

5. Get to the bottom of procrastination: 
Putting something critical off may be a matter of emotion rather than distractions.
Are you afraid that you don't have the skills to accomplish something important to your business? Do you feel that you don't have enough information to do a good job?
Are you nervous about the next step after your current project?
Really spend time with a pencil and paper looking at the reasons why
you aren't tackling something and then figure out how to fix them.

6. Take small bites: 
This is anti-procrastination advice but it's true whenever you have a hectic work day
and don't seem to get to those large projects. If you get started, you can accomplish more
than you think with an extra 15-20 minutes every now and then throughout the day.
Don't wait for large blocks of time to get started or you may never get to it.

7. Clear your desk: 
If you're ready to dive into a large project, clear your work area of other smaller duties.
It's so easy to catch sight of something that will only take a couple of minutes
and stop working on the big stuff to address the little things.
Don't let visual distractions cost you important focused time.

8. Just do it: 
Close your door, turn off your phone, clear your desk and get started.
Put a sign outside your office door with something like, "If it's not bleeding, burning or quitting,
tell me tomorrow." If you remove all excuses and distractions, you may actually accomplish
some of your main business goals even sooner than you expect.

How to Trick Yourself into Becoming a Morning Person

Self Heal.

How to Trick Yourself into Becoming a Morning Person
Stephanie Vozza

The early bird apparently does get the worm. Christoph Randler,
a biology professor at the University of Education in Heidelberg, Germany,
found that morning people are often more successful than evening people because,
as a group, they tend to be proactive. A recent survey conducted by The Guardian 
confirms this idea, reporting that many CEOs of successful companies are up by 5 a.m.
But what if you’re more of a night owl than a morning lark – is it possible to change your ways?
Yes, but it will take work, says Dr. W. Christopher Winter,
Medical Director for the Martha Jefferson Hospital Sleep Medicine Center in Charlottesville, Va. and spokesperson for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
"Your genes determine what we call your 'chronotype,' which is if you are a morning
or evening person," says Winter. "It's often similar within families,
but it can be influenced to a certain degree."
Changing your chronotype takes about two weeks, but you have to stick with it.
If you slack off, you’ll drift back to your natural tendencies,
Winter cautions. He offers six simple tips for adjusting your internal clock:

1. Put yourself on a morning schedule, but don't sweat bed time. 
Wake up, exercise and eat at the same time every day, says Winter.
The body likes to anticipate what’s happening, and will settle into a routine.
But don’t worry about your bedtime: "People get hung up on setting a bedtime,
but that’s a mistake because it can cause stress," he says. "The bedtime will sort itself out
because you'll be tired. The most important piece is to not slack off on the wakeup time."
Winter says the problem occurs when you drift back to older patterns during weekends
and vacations. Sleeping in on weekends tells your body that your early morning routine
is just an arbitrary schedule and that it should stick to its chronotype. To become a morning person, it’s important to get up early on weekends, even if you are out late the night before.

2. Use a smart alarm. 
The snooze button was designed to allow people to go back to sleep for a few minutes without reentering a deep sleep cycle, but it can hinder your transformation into an early riser, says Winter.
“There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with it, but if you want to wake up at a certain time
you’re not in a cognitive state of mind to make a decision about whether or not
to add nine more minutes of sleep,” he says.
Instead, Winter likes to use a smartphone alarm app, such as Smart Alarm or Math Alarm,
that requires him to solve a math problem to turn it off or set it to snooze.
“Solving a problem makes your brain awake enough to make an informed decision,” he says.
He also likes to use his music library to play a random song as an alarm.
“You can become callous to the same song or sound on your alarm,” he says.
“Different songs will be a novel stimulus and that can be helpful.”

3. Let in the light. 
Whether it’s natural or artificial, light is significant because it tells the brain that the day has begun and sends signals to the body to stop making melatonin,
the hormone that helps regular sleep, says Winter.
“If it’s dark when you want to wake up – say 5 a.m., for example –
you can fool your brain into thinking the sun is up by using bright indoor lights,” he says.

4. Get some exercise. 
Winter says exercising first thing in the morning helps wake up the body.
 
Researchers at Appalachian State University found that morning exercise
lowers your blood pressure, reduces stress and anxiety, and helps you sleep better at night. 
Winter says exercising in bright light is best.
He suggests going for a morning bike ride or jog, or taking the dog for a walk.

5. Have a protein-heavy meal. 
Skip the bagel and go for eggs or yogurt, says Winter.
Protein facilitates wakefulness, he says, while carbohydrates promote sleep.
"Protein increases your dopamine levels, which help make you ready for the day.”

6. Avoid the urge to nap. 
Winter says falling asleep earlier may be difficult in the first few days,
and you may have a strong urge to nap, but you should fight it.
"Capitalize on sleepiness as a way to go to bed earlier," he says.

"If you nap, you'll destroy your natural stimulus for sleep."

What is SEO and how does it work

Vetch and (brown) sorrel.

What is SEO and how does it work
jaz 

In terms of what SEO is and how it works this SEO article is going tackle all the important information you might need to know about Search Engine Optimization. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and this is a technique which helps search engines find and rank your site higher than the millions of other sites in response to a search query, hence SEO helps you get traffic from search engines. Every time you enter a query in a search engine you get a list of web results that contain that query term.
Users usually run to visit websites that are at the top of this list as they perceive those to be more applicable to the query. Maybe you have ever wondered why some of these websites rank better than the others, well the reason is because of a powerful web marketing technique 
called SEO. 
A successful search engine optimization campaign will have, as part of the improvements, carefully select, relevant, keywords which the on-page optimization will be designed 
to make prominent for search engine algorithms.

To learn about SEO the basic truth everyone needs to know is that search engines are not humans. The differences between how humans and search engines view web pages is that search engines are text driven unlike humans and might be obvious for everybody. Search engines are far from intelligent creatures that can feel the beauty of a cool design or enjoy the sounds and movement in movies despite the fact that technology advances rapidly.
Looking at particular site items (mainly text) to get an idea what a site is about search engines crawl the Web. as we will see next, search engines perform several activities in order to deliver search results – crawling, indexing, processing, calculating relevancy, and retrieving and because of this, that brief explanation might not be the most precise one.
In order to see what is there search engines crawl the Web and this task is performed by a piece of software, called a crawler or a spider. In the case of Google they call it Gogglebot. Spiders follow links from one page to another on their way they index everything they find. On the web there might be over twenty billion pages and because of this big figure it is impossible for a spider to visit a site daily just to see if a new page has appeared or if an existing page has been modified. It is even possible that sometimes crawlers may not end up visiting your site for a month or even two.
The thing you can do is to check what a crawler sees from your site. Crawlers are not humans and they do not see images, Flash movies, JavaScript, frames, password-protected pages and directories as we have said earlier. If you have tons of these on your site you have to see if these goodies are viewable by the spider by running the spider simulator. A spider simulator is an online tool to get an idea about how search engine see your website content. They will not be spidered, not indexed, not processed etc. if they are not viewable.
The next step is to index the page’s content after it has been crawled. After the page has been index it is stored in a giant database where it can be retrieved later. Identifying the words and expressions that best describe the page and assigning the page to particular keyword is essentially the process of indexing. Search engine will deal just fine with the task of processing such amounts of information since it won’t be possible for a human to do that.

Taxman's incredible technology tracks down tax dodgers

Horehound.

Taxman's incredible technology tracks down tax dodgers
HMRC’s computers know far more about you than you’d expect


The taxman has spent the last seven years developing a computer programme called 'Connect', which has an extraordinary ability to spot tax dodgers. The system trawls databases of personal finance information, spots connections between people and businesses, and looks for mismatches with the information that taxpayers have given in their tax returns. The incredibly complex system has cost a reported £80 million so far, but since 2008 it has clawed back £3 billion extra in tax.

The computer program was revealed by accountants BDO in a new report. It said the programme searches 30 sources repeatedly to capture new information, check records against one another, and highlight potential areas for investigation. These sources range from public sector records like the DVLA to private businesses.

What does it know?

It means, for example, it can compare your bank account balance - and the money going in - with information from your tax return - or PAYE data submitted by your employer. It can also compare the amount you claim to have paid into your pension - and therefore declared tax relief on - with the amount actually paid into your pension. In addition, it can spot income from savings, and compare it to the savings income you declared on your tax return.
Tax tips and guides

Clever data collection tools can also keep an eye on online auctions and marketplaces, to check whether you have an unusual amount of activity on the sites that could hint at undeclared income. It can also access records of things like the car you are driving, so it can ask questions of people who declare low levels of income and drive expensive luxury cars.

The idea is that if any of these things don't match up, HMRC can identify you as a target for further investigation. Already Connect is responsible for highlighting the vast majority of cases for investigation.

The report added that the programme is getting increasingly powerful, which means it can search further and faster. From September next year HMRC has access to files held by banks and financial firms in British overseas territories, and in 2017 it will get access to another 60 countries - which will all be included in searches by Connect.

Should you be worried?

Of course, powerful technology like this raises concerns that inaccuracies in underlying records could trigger tax investigations on completely innocent people. Then there are the security issues that always come with processing this level of data. There will be some people who despite having a completely clean tax record, still don't like the idea of their financial dealings being searched.

However, in an age where the government is squeezing every possible penny out of honest taxpayers, it's good to see government agencies are also working on solutions that will squeeze every penny out of those trying to cheat the tax system too. As a spokesperson told AOL: "Connect is an important tool in ensuring we maximise revenue. It brings together over a billion pieces of data which our analysts use to identify those who are determined to line their own pockets by cheating the UK of vital tax revenue."

But what do you think? Are you happy for the system to check your records, in order to track down tax dodgers, or does it leave you feeling a bit unsettled? Let us know in the comments.
