How to overcome my negative thoughts

How To Overcome My Negative Thoughts

This is the grossest, nastiest and ugliest word ever. DOUBT. We all hate it, but why do we insist on keeping it alive in our minds? How do we overcome our negative thoughts? Doubt certainly doesn’t make you a positive person and it affects everyone around you. It’s stressful, fearful and time consuming.

People are attracted to smiling faces and those who have great personalities. Think of the people you like in your life; chances are they are positive people.

In order to succeed with anything you need to squash that word and focus on the positive and overcome your negative thoughts. If you’re dwelling on the negative then your brain will not have room to think of the positive things in your life. Hang around positive energy people, it is contagious and will help you become a more positive person.

So how do we get rid of doubt altogether? How can I squash those feelings that consume my brain from time to time and make me feel uneasy?

1) Think of positive things in your life
2) Every piece of doubt has 2 sides, think of the positive side, challenge it and work from there
3) Remember that you are wasting time when you are thinking about negative things

Overcoming your negative thoughts and doubt will take some time to get rid of negative feelings. Start practicing turning your negative thoughts into positive ones. Before you know it, you will have trained your brain into knowing how to fight doubt and it will happen automatically.

Have a productive day!

Kitchenaid stand mixer vs

Kitchenaid Stand Mixer vs. Kitchenaid Hand Mixer

When deciding on a mixer you have to consider space and usage. A Kitchenaid stand mixer takes up more room than the hand mixer. Depending on your cooking style you may find you need a stand mixer, a hand mixer, or both. The two are not interchangeable, meaning their strengths are not the same.

Benefits of a Stand Mixer
Stand mixers are great for larger jobs. If you want to make bread dough, several dozen cookies, big pots of mashed potatoes, or homemade icing, then you will need the power and convenience of a stand mixer.

Stand mixers allow you to walk away. Some recipes call for you to beat an ingredient for several minutes. Not only can you do other things while it is mixing, your arm won’t get tired either.

The Kitchenaid stand mixer also has a variety of attachments adding to its versatility. Since the motor is strong, the attachments are just as strong giving you powerful juicers, grinders, ice cream makers and more.

Benefits of a Hand Mixer
The hand mixer is more portable. If you want to whip up some potatoes in a pan, then the hand mixer is for you.

It also works well for small recipes, store bought cake mixes, whipping egg whites, or anything else that takes just a few minutes.

If you do a large amount of holiday cooking or prepare home made meals twice a month, then you will want a stand mixer. It is best used if you can leave it on the counter, so if you have room a stand mixer is the right choice.

If you only cook for 1 or 2 people, then a hand mixer will probably suit you best. Hand mixers are easily stored away and can be retrieved as needed.

How to generate mlm leads

How to Generate MLM Leads

This is a good question to ask before you spend any money on MLM lead generation choices needed in building your MLM business.

Why would you want to go about MLM lead generation in the first place?

Over the years the MLM business has gotten a black eye because of the over hyped promises of money and freedom. Very few people have ever achieved a high level of success in any MLM business. And even fewer have ever been able to maintain the level of achievements over a period of time.

That does not make MLM companies bad. Nor does it make the opportunities they afford the average person as ways to make extra money or even as a way to drastically change your lifestyle.

MLM lead generation is the way to do it.

There are 2 big benefits of MLM lead generation:

1. It gets you away from approaching your friends and relatives. If you have been in more than one MLM business over the years you may have already approached them and used up your credibility when you were unsuccessful.

2. MLM lead generation is a duplicable way to build your business that you can pass on to your downline. Any successful network marketing business will tell you that one of the main components of success is duplication. Anyone can buy leads and work them over the phone or through the internet with the use of an autoresponder.

Now that you understand some of the benefits of buying MLM lead generation and how to market them, let us now take a look at the characteristics
of the best MLM lead generation result.

1. How many times are the leads sold? Many MLM lead companies sell their leads over and over. You will be contacting a prospect that has already been marketed to. Typically, you would want to have leads that are exclusively yours.

2. How old are the leads? Would you rather contact a prospect that has expressed an interest in the past 48 hours or in the past 48 days? Being able to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak, is a great benefit of a fresh MLM leads.

3. How many leads do you get for your money? Obviously the more MLM leads you have generated, the more leads you can buy at a time. This is especially important when you are first starting or when you are helping your downline get started.

4. What is the quality of the lead? Nothing compares to an effective MLM lead generation that contains both a phone number and email address along with a few qualifying answers to questions like “How much can you invest to get started” or “How soon do you want to get started” or When is the best time to contact you?”.

If a prospect is answering these types of questions, you are getting a much better quality lead than if you just have a name and email address.

5. What is the response rate? This will improve as your skill level at working your MLM lead generation improves. But the fresher higher quality leads will give you a better response rate even when your skill level is low.

These are some of the best MLM lead generation qualities. Be careful when choosing a place to get your leads.

How to backup your business data properly

How to backup your business data properly

Business data is perhaps the most important data that exists on computers, and can literally destroy some businesses that rely on their data. This is why every business needs to do weekly, or daily, backups of their data. But with so many backup choices, a business owner can feel frustrated and worried about their choice. See, some backup methods are more reliable then others, but others are more convenient then the reliable ones. If you are a business owner, you want a backup solution that is both reliable and convenient to use. So let’s talk about the current business data backup solutions available to you, and how to implement them correctly.

The first data backup method I will discuss is hard disk imaging, also known as cloning. This is, in my opinion, the best data backup solution for anyone from home users to successful business owners. The reason being because it saves every last scrap of data that you have on your hard drive, so basically should you ever have to restore your backup because of data loss, all of it will be given back to you. It also is the quickest and simplest method of data backup for someone with little knowledge of computers and doesn’t have time to spend backing up data all day.

The next backup solution for your business is remote online backup. This means your data will be saved on a secure server, in a remote location that is far away from you. This is good for many reasons, but mainly it protects you from losing everything in case of a natural disaster that might take out your whole business or home office. Backing up your files online is also pretty cheap and convenient, and sending your files their can be as easy as one click. Another good reason for choosing an online backup company is because they also backup your files using professional software and hardware, to make sure that your data is literally locked away in a digital vault and will never disappear.

The last business data backup solution I will discuss is external storage devices which are very simple, and pretty useful, so I thought it was worth mentioning. External devices that store data can come in a variety of ways. Most common are external hard drives and memory sticks. Many people are choosing memory sticks these days because they easily plug right into your USB port, and can hold gigabytes of data, which is usually more then enough, especially for text documents and stuff like that.

DVD and CD burners can also be external, and perhaps are the best choice for most people that are always on the move. Just like the old floppy discs, external DVD or CD burners allow you to store data quickly and accurately, but CD’s and DVD’s whole a lot more data then a floppy ever could. As for drag and drop ease, that is actually possible with all burners these days, and should be considered. Imagine being able to just click save on a file, and it saves it to your disc.

Well that is just about all of the major data backup solutions that are available for businesses. There are of course many other backup options that exist, but the ones I talked about are the most common, most effective and easiest to implement. Before I end this article though, I would like to remind business owners that have computer servers, to use disk imaging software on a daily basis. Servers store a lot of data, and most of it is important, so be sure to back that data up or you will be in for one big headache if anything should ever happen.
