Trial and Learning

They should call it “Trial and LEARNING” not “Trial and Error”.  With my 3 kids (2 of whom have special needs), I always celebrate the trying, whether or not the reach their targets. I celebrate because I know that grit is what will drive them to success.

The same is true for myself. As a newbie in online marketing, I have tried out my ads. Some ads are good, some need more work. But I know this process of “trial and learning” will soon get me to a winner ad. I may have “lost” money with some ads, but I gained much information on the things I should keep doing and stop doing.

Motivation is key

Now my 7-year-old Ian, is writing poetry.  
“Apples are red not blue

Or not either the colour of poo.”
Amazing how poo, fart and pee is such a big motivation and gets kids to read and write a lot! When Ian was about 5 and rejecting his reading assignments, I got him to enjoy reading by looking for words like “we-we” then building it up to “dad we-we” or “I we-we” 😜. From that motivation. He picked-up his reading assignments again and today he does his homework alone and is even on his way to becoming famous author and illustration one day 😉

  

Sharing His Success

Must be the coolest “kid” around…our smiles says it all. 
At age 21, this kid knew that online business was the way to go. He dropped everything the had to fly half way around the world to get the best coaching from Matt Lloyd.  
When he made that drastic decision and flew to Matt’s office in Malaysia, he only had $100 left in his bank. Today he’s now a very successful entrepreneur…and he’s only 21!  

Just as important as his personal success, he chose to be at live events because he wanted to inspire newbie entrepreneurs and fast track their success. He certainly achieved that at this event. I loved his coaching, but best of all, I loved how Steven Bransfield really took the TIME and CARE to address all of our technical questions.

Live events are always the best places to be

I’m at the Super Charge with the Power Team! The best of the best coaches are here and I’m learning everything I need to know to fast track my online home business!
Like every training I have attended, wether for management training, autism/parenting, and now online business training, I always go home with 10 fold more knowledge and equipped to do so much more! Never miss out on live events!

  

What is the one thing that everyone has, no one can take away from you, it is so powerful that it can change your life?

 I’m so blessed learning this “power” first from Barry Neil Kaufman, the first Son-Rise dad who helped his son with severe autism recover. And then from so many more sources like from Napoleon Hills “THINK and grow rich”

It is the power of our BELIEF

When I arrived home last night my son, Nathan, who has autism, was crying and hitting his head with his hand. I DECIDED I want to go with the BELIEF that I could settle him sooner than later. Now, typically tantruming of child who has autism, can feel like an endless moment and drain all the patience and energy of a parent. Well, that was me a couple of years ago, before I learned the power of belief.

I chose my belief, then verbalised my thoughts by calmly repeating “I love you” to my son. He shouted, I told him I loved him. He cried, I reintegrated my belief. He bit his arm, I gave him reassurance of my love for him again. His wining stopped, I stayed with him still telling him I loved him. He smiled, I prayed my thanksgiving prayer. He laughed, I celebrated my joy with him. He asked me to play, I joined momentarily then invited him to bed. He smiled, I reiterated that I loved him. He hugged me, I hugged back knowing how truly blessed I am. Then he turned over indicating he was sleepy. “Good night Nathan, I love” was my response to his non-verbal gesture and left him for the night.

Understanding my belief has changed my life as a parent of twins with special needs. Now that I know the secret, I can apply this winning formula to everything in life, including venturing into an Online Business.

Even if statistics says that 97% of people who venture into online marketing fail, I believe and I know that I will succeed. I know I have the craving and willingness to learn. I know that by helping myself, I can soon help others. I know I can make small commitments every day, which will add up to big results in the future.
Utilise the POWER OF YOUR BELIEF.

This is what Oprah Winfrey used when her aunt told her to learn to wash the laundry because that was most likely the job she was going to end up doing.

This is what the Wright brothers used to power their dream and got man to fly when the whole world was telling them that they were crazy.

This is what Nancy Rudolf used to earn her title “fastest woman in the world in world” in the 1960s, despite the doctors telling her that she would never be able to walk because of her polio.

It’s free, everyone has it, no one can take away from you and it truly is so powerful that it can change your life!

What a home business can do to your marriage 

We have had our share of rough patches in our marriage. I was so busy raising the kids, providing therapy for my special-needs twins, researching on dietary and biomedical interventions heal the twins. Until my son with autism was 8 years old, I had to stay with him through the night because of his sleeping/agitation problems. In those days Hubby was coming home late from work. Relocation to a new country meant he needed more time to adjust to his new roles and longer commute time.

At the end of the day, hubby and I were just too tired and too busy to reconnect with each other. There must have been a year or two when I felt our marriage was stagnant. Even worse money issues started to pop-up as I wanted to spend more money on promising alternative autism interventions. Hubby was focused on saving, he feared we needed so much more to save, especially for our son with severe autism. Since our agendas did not meet, we kept on accusing each other of not doing the right things. It was ironic because we both had the same objective, to give our kids what they needed, yet the implementation of our goals seemed so different, even opposing.

Though there has been rough patches, in the end, the journey with my twins with special-needs has been a blessing and instrumental is keeping us working on our marriage and reevaluating priorities in life.

Moving on to the next chapter of our lives and the opportunity to build our own online business…I have to say, getting into this, has actually enhanced our marriage. Since he has invested in our business and I run most of the show, we always need “business meetings” to keep each other updated and align our business targets daily and weekly.

Those “business meetings” actually feel better than dates, that we haven’t had much opportunities to have. As newbies in the online business, we get excited all the little things: the ability to shift from being “employee” to “investor” and having a big control over the returns of our investment; creating our brand and our advertisements; learning the ins and outs of online marketing; seeing ad clicks and conversations; being ambitious about what the future holds for us, etc.

I’m relishing my blessings!
