Intention and Focus

The first lesson I’ve learned is the importance of intention and focus.

What started out with high purpose and huge enthusiasm quickly morphed into a back page message somewhere in the depths of my inbox. Before I knew it, Week 6 of John’s training program had just popped into my inbox. Week 6! I was barely started into Week 1. Where did that come from? And I thought I was moving, making progress, feeling good… Well, not exactly. No, not really. Not at all, in fact. Face the fact.

The first real lesson. It’s not one on the checklist John sends out every week with his lessons to his students on his Partnership to Success program. But this is fundamental stuff, make it or break it on anything, not just internet marketing, really the first barrier to progress and success..

I took a deep breath. Then I had to take a real good look. What happened? All that busyness I’d been busy on, all those little and big things that came up, and “important” things I’d needed to do. You know. Feed the cat, walk the dog, call my friend, go to the dentist, child’s school-do, the bank, the shops, go to work, pay the bills…All added up to time lost that could never be spent again. You could live a whole life like that.

Well it was time to sort out what my intention was and put some focus on that. Ignore everything else. Sweep it to one side for now.

One step in 6 weeks became 6 steps in one week. What a difference.

A real sense of achievement followed as I actually got things done, and pride too. Two lessons learned, I’d say.

Welcome to my Blog

This is my first post to this new blog and I’m very excited. It’s spring. The sun is shining. It’s a brand new start and a brand new adventure. What could be a better way to start the year –with interest and excitement, full of hope for a better future, an opportunity to learn how to do new things, work at something different and move forward to a better life? Walk with me and share the adventure. And become inspired yourself to try.

Recently, I joined John Thornhill’s Partnership to Success training program. I am amazed and delighted with what I found when I accessed the site he set up for this program. The program is delivered in a series of weekly lessons, each one consisting of several short steps, to be done in sequence. The data is presented in simple, easy-to-follow steps as easy as joining up the dots. And if you are totally new to this, it takes away so much complexity. You don’t have to know what all the buttons on the page are in order to work out which is the one you need to press. John’s already done all the thinking for you. That surely cuts through a lot of confusion and learning curve. As well, he’s already worked out who to go to for what and that simplifies many things  

John presents the information for each lesson in several formats. You can choose to study the lesson as a short online video lasting only a few minutes, as an MP4 file or PDF document. He’s also set it up for iPad, iPhone and iPod users. So you can take your pick as to when, where and how you work through the program.

There’s a wealth of other bonuses that come with the program. To say I am delighted and amazed is an understatement. Between the member’s forum and access to much of John’s other material there is a true abundance of material offered on this, John’s Partnership to Success program. For example you have access to all his ebooks and even materials launched by other students on his program, many of whom have gone on to become successful internet marketers and operate successful businesses online.  You are welcome to join us and take part in this exciting adventure.
