nothing exciting in your life. Maybe you’re just plain disheartened
with who you have become and the life you are living.No matter how

Friends can be there to comfort and guide you every
step of the way. They also deal with trials every now and then,
like you. It is surprisingly therapeutic to walk together,
communicate authentically, and support each other through times of

and the wind blowing in your face. Look around you. It’s a
magnificent world that’s available to you 24 hours a day—for free.
The simplest things that can make you happy are around you, right

opportunities, and you will seize one eventually. It’s always
empowering to realize you have options to earn and take care of
opportunity to travel. It’s a big world out there and you have the chance to
explore new sights and different experiences. The cultures of other
countries will leave you mesmerized with how vastly different we
all are, even though we live under the same blue sky. And if you
can’t travel far, you can still venture to unfamiliar places and
experience something new.
opportunity for altruism. Let go of worries about your own plight and focus on
others in need. The best way to get is to give. When you take the
focus off of your life through meaningful acts of charity,
volunteering or "giving" in any way, you will make a difference and
appreciate how fulfilled you really are.

7. Your role

generations will live theirs. Quite empowering, huh? People today
have a responsibility to keep the environment safe for others to
enjoy down the road. Life is meant to be shared, including the
generations that follow.
uniqueness. Grab a pen and paper and write down all your skills and
talents, no matter how small. You may be surprised at how many you
have that you do not utilize. Start sharing these gifts to bring
joy to others around you, and give them the chance to appreciate
blessings. Pessimists have the habit of complaining about things
they don’t have. Do the exact opposite and love your life for the
things that you do have, no matter how little. Be thankful for your
home, your food, and the people you care about in your
goals. Goals make you feel alive and keep you motivated.
Challenges make people stronger. If you keep working toward your

With everything in the world changing at an ever
increasing pace, sometimes LIFE can feel
a bit overwhelming. We can feel lost or even forget what it
is that truly makes us happy. With the advent of so much technology
at our fingertips and the overwhelming need to keep up with it all,
I strongly feel it's a necessity to stop what your doing and
literally... "smell the roses". So today I would like to share a
few things we all should try to remember when we are feeling a bit
overwhelmed or maybe a little lost.
THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Do what you love and do it often.
If you don't like something, change it. If you don't like your job,
quit! If you don't have enough time, stop watching T.V. If you are
looking for the love of your life; they will be waiting for you
when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, LIFE is
simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, enjoy every last
bite. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we
are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what
their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel
often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some oppurtunities
only come once, seize them. LIFE is about the people you meet and
the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. LIFE
is short so live your dream and wear your

Why Niche Marketing is the Way to Go in Succeeding Online
Niche Marketing is the last great frontier for the small
business entrepreneur. Out there in the 'real' world, small
businesses don't have a half fair chance of competing against the
giant international corporations of the world. The Internet has
evened the odds for small business. The Internet has created a real
equal opportunity for those who are willing to use it. There are
several different ways to make use of niche marketing and succeed.
All of the ways require getting a domain and a webhost, building
web pages and adding content. Those are just the basic basics of
Internet Marketing in any form. Then there are the choices of how
to go about building a successful niche marketing site that will
provide you with a profit for example - "Instantly Reduce Excess Body
Weight" - hopefully a very large profit.
1. You can
create an informational product.
An informational product can be articles, reports, columns, audio
or video, or other things. These can be sold as stand alone
products or used for advertisement or promotional causes.
2. You can build a content rich web site that will be so
interesting it will draw potential customers again and again.
3. You can publish newsletters and ezines that are
so full of pertinent information that people will happily pay for
subscriptions to them.
All of the above listed ways can be used to create a niche
marketing website that has the capacity to make money. There
are two things that all of these methods have in common.
1. The topic must be one that helps people solve a problem,
makes them healthier or happier, or provides them with information
that they want or need in some way.
2. The content of the website, no matter the topic, must be
relevant, timely and interesting to the people who are reading it
and the website must be easily navigated.
3. There really are some things that you can do to
improve your existing product.
You may have a niche marketing website that just isn't producing
sales for you at the rate at which you had hoped it would... or
maybe it isn't producing any income for you at all or it could be
that you haven't actually figured out that what you are selling is,
in fact, a niche market product. You might need to do a little
'tweaking' and modify your strategies somewhat to get the site
Step #1: Bill Cosby, the famous entertainer, once said, "I
don't know what the secret of success is, but I know the secret of
failure and that was trying to please everybody." He was right. You
can't please everybody and you can't sell to everybody either. It's
possible that you may simply need to narrow you market, identify
you product as a niche marketing product and advertise it accordingly.
Step #2: To improve your existing product you have likely
overlooked the most obvious solution of all. You could simply ask
your customers what they think. They are, after all, the end users
of the product or service that you are selling. There is nobody
that knows how a product can be improved better
than the people who are using the product.
Step #3: Analyze the competition. Take the time and put forth
the effort to look at the product or service that your competitors
are offering. Identify their strengths and weaknesses. Find out
what your competition can't, won't or doesn't really like to do and
set about doing those very things yourself.
Step #4: Are you selling your product at the right price?
Pricing a product too low makes people think it won't be any good,
pricing too high will discourage them from buying it.
