Why You Have Not Achieved Your Goal! (2 min read) — The Millionaire’s Digest

You have unlimited potential, so why are you not seeing the results, why are you not reaching your goals.

It’s one of two things, or both.

  • You are blaming other people for your problems.
  • You have not pursued your goal with resolve.

You have to take a long look in the mirror and ask yourself if you really want it. Is it your goal or someone else’s? If you really want it, if it’s your goal and you set it. What is stopping you? Most people have a list of problems going through their head after that question. Here are two of the problems that most people talk about.

  1. Not enough time
  2. I don’t know how to… you fill in the blank

You have the same amount of time in the day as the person who is achieving their goal and we live in the year 2016, you can learn anything if you try hard enough. These excuses don’t work, the truth is you don’t really want it, you want to have excuses to talk to your friends about. You want to keep telling your story about how the world is out to get you. It may sound harsh but do a little personal inventory the next time you are with your friends.

If you want to achieve your goal, work for it. Get up early or stay up late. Take a class or find YouTube videos to help you learn what it takes to get there. You have to put in the work.

Reaffirm your goal with resolve.

There is a quote by Benjamin Disraeli that sums up resolve in a powerful way. “Nothing will withstand the power of the human will if it is willing to stake its very existence to the extent of it’s purpose.”

Ladies and Gentlemen, that’s it. If you pursue your goals with resolve you won’t need to blame other people for things gone wrong. You will be so busy making things happen others won’t phase you. You can take a hit, get up, and keep moving.

The fact is you have unlimited potential, you can achieve your goal! There’s a beast inside waiting to get out. Make up your mind to pursue your goal with resolve and set the beast free.

Do you want to know more about the beast inside? Check it out here on Learn with Caveman.

50 Amazing Ideas To Keep Your Audience Entertained (5 min read)

Stuck with coming up with ideas to keep adding to your blog…? It’s okay! It happens! Try some of these.

  1. Customer success story. When you receive a great testimonial from a customer, ask for permission to turn it into a post. Use the post to solicit more customer stories.
  2. Mention a popular post. If you notice a post by a popular blogger in your niche getting a lot of attention, add your viewpoint and link to the original post. Be sure to let that A-list blogger know about your comment and link.
  3. Disagree with a popular opinion. Get traffic by stirring up controversy and taking a contrary position.
  4. Riff on the news. How are current events affecting your customers? Run a Google Alert on certain keywords related to your business or industry to find relevant news items to discuss.
  5. Compile a link roundup. If you notice several interesting opinions on a topic, you can pull them together into a single post of the best ideas.
  6. Play off the familiar. Mention a celebrity or a pop culture touchstone and your readers will instantly relate.
  7. Answer the questions everyone is asking. An FAQ post shows you’re responsive and saves customers time.
  8. Pose your own question. What would you like to know about your customers? Just ask, and let your readers create the content.
  9. Talk about trends. You convey authority when you tell how things are evolving in your industry.
  10. Discuss future plans. Give readers a sneak peek at what you’ll do in the coming year to start generating interest.
  11. Review a book. If you’ve read a book you think customers might like, give it a write-up.
  12. Review a product or service. This shouldn’t be one of your own products or services or a direct competitor’s offering, but rather a related item your customers might want to learn about.
  13. Comparison test. Provide even more value by comparing two or more related products or services.
  14. Post a video. Create variety with a video post. You can give a sneak preview of a new product or show a promotional event.
  15. Make a podcast. Record a quick interview with an expert, or just give a few of your own useful tips.
  16. Create an infographic. Fact-filled, graphic posts get shared a lot on social networks. This infographic got more than 10,000 retweets.
  17. Report on a conference. Quote inspiring speakers or tell readers about the latest trends and ideas from the conference that you’ll be implementing.
  18. Go behind the scenes. Give readers a photo or video tour of your plant, customer service desk or the backroom of your store.
  19. Explain how you do it. Do you have a special way you make your product, handle returns or welcome new customers? Describe your process.
  20. Staff profiles. Give a human face to your company by introducing new or seasoned employees.
  21. Show your charity work. If your business gives back to the community, post a video or photo essay of that park your staff cleaned up.
  22. Gush about your idols. Talk about the blogs you read regularly or the thought leaders who inspire you. Be sure to alert those bloggers and business gurus so they’ll spread the word.
  23. Have a debate. Invite someone who disagrees with your views to do a “Point/Counterpoint” post.
  24. Talk about your blunders. Everyone loves to read aboutbusiness failures. End your post by telling how you’re fixing the problem.
  25. Create a regular feature. Do a “customer of the week” spotlight or create a monthly collection of the best online articles that match your customers’ interests.
  26. Write a series. If you’d like to teach customers something complicated, break the topic into several parts. Series are an effective way to turn casual readers into subscribers.
  27. Make a prediction. Everybody wants to know what may happen in the future, so share your opinion.
  28. Conduct market research. Are you wondering which product name would attract more customers? Hold a virtual focus group on a blog post.
  29. Create a contest. Offer a prize for the most interesting customer suggestion or use of your product.
  30. Take a reader poll. SurveyMonkey makes this easy. Or you can simply set up a poll on your business Facebook page and draw readers to “like” your page.
  31. Share poll or contest results. Don’t leave readers hanging; do a follow-up post to announce the results.
  32. Create an award. Giving a “best of” honor is guaranteed to get attention. Readers will want to check out who won, and all the finalists will likely share the news in social media.
  33. Share your customer feedback. If you use customer comment cards or do customer surveys, turn some highlights into a post.
  34. Reveal industry secrets or expose lies. When you promise to tell people what others won’t, it’s sure to be a hit.

  36. Share a highlight. What were the big milestones in your company’s history? Tell about an important moment and how it changed your business.
  37. Keyword posts. Check your Google Analytics to see which keyword searches bring customers to your site. Then do posts on those topics.
  38. Read your competitors. If you’re out of ideas, see what topics are drawing a crowd on your competitors’ blogs and give your own take on those subjects. You can even link to your competitor’s post. Readers will think that’s cool.
  39. Display a sense of humor. Everyone loves business owners who can laugh at themselves when something goes wrong at the office. Consider giving a “how-to” post a funny spin.
  40. Show your passion. What aspect of your business gets you excited? What customer experience was especially gratifying? Tell those personal stories.
  41. Share your vision. If you’re different from competitors because of your philosophy, talk about it.
  42. Informational, how-to. Is there more than one way to use your product or service? Describe one of the less common uses in a how-to post.
  43. Tips and tricks. Don’t have time for a step-by-step how-to post? Give readers a few random suggestions for how to get more out of your product.
  44. Celebrity Q&A. An interview post can be quick and easy if you simply email questions to an expert of interest to your customers. If you have some dream interview subjects, go ahead and ask if they’ll participate. You’ll probably be surprised how many say yes.
  45. Be inspiring. Sometimes, customers would just like to feel good. Write about something you found inspiring in the course of your day or how you keep a positive work culture.
  46. Resource list. You could spotlight your vendors, companies you partner with, or a list of good books related to your business.
