5 Basic Steps to a Million Dollar Information Marketing Business Model

Building a million dollar information marketing business doesn’t start with buying the latest article or blog submitting gizmo or list of 5 million subscribers for $27! It also doesn’t start by investing in ever more popular fly-by-night tactics that work today and are obsolete (or banned) tomorrow.

Instead, information marketing millionaires first build strong foundations for success by focusing on developing an effective business model that allows fast growth.

There are five key components this business model must include. All of them are equally important for long term success, stability, and profitability of your business.

Once you have a specific business model mapped out you can identify the specific strategies you want to focus on. This in turn will dictate what specific tactics you need to employ, and what action steps to take to reach your objective of building a million dollar information marketing business.

So let’s explore those five key components of an effective business model.

Component 1 – Generate Traffic

The first step on this model is to generate traffic. You’ve got to have “duplicate-able”, repeatable, sustainable ways to generate traffic.

You can get your traffic for free – but it will take a bit longer to get it. Or you can buy it and have people visiting your website in a matter of minutes.

Some of the free traffic generation strategies include article submissions, blogging, social media presence, like video and audio podcasts and accounts with popular online networking sites including LinkedIn, MySpace, Facebook, or Twitter.

And let’s not forget something as simple as a “Tell a friend” button somewhere on each page of your website.

The fastest way to get traffic to your website is to buy it. Bying PPC (pay per click) like Google’s AdWords is probably one of the most known paid traffic strategy, but there are many others.

You can also buy text links, banner advertising, display ads on other people’s sites and blogs. You can also buy classified ads in other people’s ezines and even solo-mailings to other people’s lists of subscribers.

A lot of savvy marketers also use strategic alliances or JVs (Joined Ventured) to quickly drive massive traffic to their websites. While it’s a very effective strategy, it’s not free. Your JV partners will typically want to get a hefty percentage of the sales they generate with their promotions of your site. But – it will be quick!

Component 2 – Lead Generation

One of the biggest mistakes most people make is they try to get a sale too soon! Instead, a much better approach is to generate a lead first, then convert that lead into a paid first-time customer.

Let’s take this one step at a time – converting visitors into subscribers of some sort – a.k.a. “leads”! This is a critical step because it will allow you to continue communicating with people interested in your products or services.

You’ve probably heard that in any business your money and success are in your list, in your database of subscribers and your relationship with them. It’s very important to learn how to get people to come to your site and then entice them to want to give you their name and email.

It used to be enough to just say something like “subscribe to my newsletter,” or “get updates about my business,” somewhere on your website to get people to opt-in to your database. But those days are long gone.

Today you must be really good at presenting great value fast and making irresistible first offers to your visitors to persuade them to give up their contact information. Strategies that still work great include giving your web visitors access to special reports, audio downloads, or informative video and audio presentations.

Obviously the better the quality of your “carrot” and the better your presentation of it, the better your conversion will be. (Conversion is the comparison of the number of people that take you up on your offer and subscribe to your list to the total number of people that visit your website.)

Component 3 – Lead Conversion

Now that you have a list of subscribers – a.k.a. database of leads – how do you convert them into paid customers, someone who would actually gives you a few dollars? Generating that first sale is your lead conversion.

Just like lead generation, lead conversion strategies will vary from business to business, depending on what you are selling and who your customers are. But the key to your success is to systemize and automate this process as much as possible. Let me give you an example.

Think of a service business, for example some like a professional life coach.

Most likely they have no systems in place. Every new client is gained a different way. A conversation with each new prospect is different from others. Every lead is generated a different way. Every lead is converted differently. It’s no wonder their businesses are overwhelming them and generating very little money. There are no systems in place.

Now let’s look at a different professional and scenario; someone like an orthodontist.

Everything is systemized. From the same lead generation mechanisms to how patients get introduced to the doctor’s office to the first experience when they come in, to how they get to meet the doctor, how their initial evaluation is presented and delivered, how the price is quoted and how the treatment is initiated.

Everything is identical for each new patient! Everything is done the same way over and over and over. Everything is a system. And that’s what you are looking for in successful information marketing business model – systemized and automated lead conversion strategies.

Component 4 – Profit Multipliers

Once you generate the first sale, you will sell more products or services to your new customer. It’s important for two reasons. First, you probably have more products and services that can help that client much more beyond what they initially received from you. And second, that’s the way to maximize the success and profitability of your business!

Here are few examples of profit multipliers.

First there is down-selling. Basically what it means is that if someone comes to your website and says, “I don’t think I’m willing to pay $97you’re your multi-media course – and I’m leaving your website,” you present them with another opportunity to purchase a similar product that sells for $47 or even less and say, “Maybe $97 is too much for your budget right now. Can I interest you in getting a similar highly quality course that costs only $20?”

A different down-sale would be to offer a payment plan. You’d say something like this, “If $97 is too much right now, can I make it more affordable for you by letting you pay in three payments of $33?”

Next, there is a cross-sale. If they pay $97 for your first program, maybe they like to add another program that will help them get more value out of their initial purchase, especially if it’s priced attractively. It’s an effective way to immediately increase the size of each initial transaction.

Then there are continuity programs. For instance, if you are a coach you can have a system in place where after the initial first sale of some type of a home study course the customer receives an invitation to join a group coaching and support program for which they would then pay monthly.

And these are just a few simple ideas of what you can do to multiply your sales and profits.

Component 5 -Scalability

Your ultimate goal is to systemize and automate your business so that its growth can be expended beyond your own efforts.

Once you have all of the key components in place, focus on simplifying, systemizing, automating, delegating – in short, you want to optimize your business for maximum performance with minimum efforts.

Then simply start driving more traffic through this “profit machine”, and, if you designed it well, it will work like a charm and continue making you more money. It’s like of like turn the faucet knob on full blast.

So to have an effective business model first you need to generate traffic to your website, then you need a way to convert that traffic into leads, then convert leads into first-time customers, and then use profit multipliers to maximize your sales and profits.

10 Grammar Tips for Your Twitter

10 Grammar Tips for Your Social Media

There are some very often grammar mistakes that occur in the Twitter messages. We have summarized a list of for you.

You may know that marketing needs a compelling copy of your business ad and to write a compelling copy, you need a good grammar and a medium to display. The internet is a vast field and it accommodates almost every business through various types of social media ads. One of the various best social media sites is called Twitter.

Entrepreneurs who are marketing through the web are aware of this fact that tweets can be retweeted but often times they ignore the very important aspect of writing a good tweet by putting in or just ignoring the grammar related mistakes.

1. Compose your tweets with caution. My college professor always said that if I count the words that I write, I am not writing the words that count. This happened before the birth of Twitter. Today not only the words that we write are counted, we even count our characters that are written. It is recommended to proofread your tweets before posting.

2. We often communicate through writing but not always with a pen as the mediums of writing have changed, the digital media has only changed the tools. As a matter of fact, with the evolution of the new ways of communications, the importance of traditional skill of writing to convey information has gained more prominence nowadays.

3. People often confuse “Accept” and “Except” or vice versa ignoring the fact that what is needed or which word is required. “Accept” stands for “receiving” or “admitting” anything, for example, you must accept the reason of the accident or she accepted the medal on behalf of the entire company. Whereas, “Except” stands for “excluding” someone or something, for example all the students are going to picnic except Jane or I like all nuts except peanut.

4. People on Twitter also confuse “Advice” with “Advise”. Advice is a noun while Advise is a verb, the improper usage change the whole meanings, for example if someone write “The advice he gave to me helped me a lot” means the direction given was helpful. On the other hand if anyone writes “He advised her to be vigilant while dealing with certain people” it means that there is sort of a caution in the speech for a person who is going to deal with certain people.

5. Same is the case with the words “Among” and “Between”. Among is used for a group, for example, “mingle among the people”, in the other case it is “between two people” or “between two points”.

6. “Anxious” and “Eager” are also confused by people while tweeting. “Anxious” stands for a worry or someone is worried or restless about something, like, “Why are you so anxious about this job?” whereas “Why are you so eager to get this job” stands for a keenness or willingness for a job.

7. People/Peoples: This is a common mistake. There is no such word like “peoples” and “people” itself is a plural.

8. Illicit/Elicit – The common confusing words for Twitter followers. “Elicit” is “to obtain”, like, “Ask questions about the subject to elicit the views of others” while “Illicit” stands for “Naughty” or “prohibited” like “illicit drugs” or “illicit motives”.

9. Be careful with “loose” and “lose”. “Loose” carry the meanings like “free” or “irresponsible”, for example, “a loose knot” and “a loose talk” while “lose” carry the meanings like “loss” or “missing”, for example, “I lose my homework so doing it again” or “I cannot afford to lose my watch”.

10. “Disinterested” = unbiased, fair. “Uninterested”= unresponsive, unconcerned.

Examples: We should seek a disinterested person to settle our dispute.

The student is so uninterested in the class that she fell asleep.

Virtual Communication: Landing the Job Remotely

Use Body Language to Make an Impression

Nonverbal communication is a great tool to help you stand out from the crowd. Too often people don’t realize that body language makes up 55% of the initial impression one makes. This is certainly essential during the interview process. Smile and use gestures when speaking to appear enthusiastic and pleasant. When listening, nod thoughtfully to show you are engaged. If the interview is conducted on the telephone be equally mindful of providing feedback such as “uh-huh” and “I understand,” when the other person is speaking. Finally, don’t forget to sit up straight; slouching will make you seem unprofessional, sloppy, and overly casual. Sitting talk and walking tall will exude confidence (even if you aren’t feeling very confident).

Preparation is Key

In addition to the homework you should do before any job interview (i.e., researching the company culture, preparing answers to common interview questions), you should also think about how to answer questions related to working remotely. For example: Have you ever worked remotely before? How will you engage with your team virtually? What do you feel are the greatest challenges about working from home and how will you overcome them? Be able to answer unexpected questions in a confident matter will go far towards you landing the job. Be sure to minimize the “insecure” words such as “um, uh, like and you know” that may indicate that you are not feeling very secure. Research has shown that using too many of these filler words will make you sound insecure and lacking confidence.

Punctuality Still Matters

Keeping your interviewer waiting is the easiest way to make a bad impression. Aim to be seated at your computer at least ten minutes before your interview is scheduled so that you have time to check your technology and compose yourself. “Arrive” at the interview (i.e., click the link) about one to two minutes before the scheduled start time. Also be sure to download the application if you have never used it before. Do this ahead of time.

Pausing is More Important Than Ever

When answering interview questions, insert short, strategic pauses into your speech. Pausing can help slow you down and keep your message clear and easy to understand. This is especially important in remote communication, since lags and audio overlap can make speech harder to understand. Pausing also helps to project an image of confidence and professionalism, and gives your interviewer time to digest your message as you speak.

Four Horsemen of the Cultural Apocalypse – Criminology, Psychology, Sociology and Theology

Historic attempts, feeble and selfish at best, the four horsemen of the cultural apocalypse long endeavored to establish their relevance for defining human nature. For the tip of psychic iceberg, the regression devolved from philosophical contemplation to pretentious claim of scientific validity. Behold, they came from the darkness of human intentions, to claim truths yet to be found in the shadowy mysteriousness of human intentions, motivations and eternal damnation. As to pundits, politicians, the public and the proselytes for each cause, or school of thought, or cult of confession, they fostered arrogance of speculation deemed “scientific”.

Of those not seriously qualifying as a science, as in astronomy, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, by way of rigorous analytic contention, philosophical conjecture conspired to make its creations inventive nightmarish creatures. In the realms of academic, the path of least resistance, the trails the herd frequently travels and the walkways crowded with mass gullibility, sleight of hand mesmerized the many. As to the usual suspects, in the treachery of myth, magic and metaphor, the four collude their smug piety in egregious fallacies of inference. Of that, the wayward pretenses of magical thinking deludes the masses in simplistic thinking.

Complicity is found in the ease by which degreed sanctification blusters in the hallowed sanctuaries of anecdotal regurgitation, flashbacks through history and bogus claims of research validity. Where the challenge comes in mathematical analytics, biologic physicality, subatomic microscopy, astronomical forensics, and proof of scientific validity, the horsemen excuse their shortcomings in appeals that hope springs eternal. Subjective validation supersedes facts. Their bafflegab trespasses upon many boundaries, as criminology, psychology, sociology and theology strike back with a vengeance. None dare disagree and breaks from the formation.

In the adventures of pseudosciences, anything is possible, and yet, the mere mention of the word should not engage fear, animosity or condemnation. Nothing about the term should invite excommunication, exorcism or execution, but instead encourage the intensity of continuous investigation. No silver bullets, holy water or laying on of hands should amass a counteroffensive against those who might question the scientific authenticity of myriad conjectures. Healthy skepticism in the pursuit of intellectual vitality, by insistence upon investigative scrutiny, questioning and doubting specious generalizations, is creative and productive.

Nonetheless, the mention of anything that might sound like, look like, or feel like a hint of something akin to “pseudoscience”, the emotional reactivity transmutes a seemingly normal looking individual into a venomous demonic entity. The question arises as what constitutes normal, or better yet, what is a “reasonable person”. Additionally, the query begs the timeline as to when it became acceptable to advance varying levels of stupidity or ignorance in terms of hunting down the truth and proving evidence to support any assertion. The negativity is nauseous.

As to that historic point of reference, in article of major online science journal, the writer ponders at what point in U.S. history it became part of the social mainstream to accept fiction over facts. Further, as one of the founding fathers claimed well-reasoned thinking processes, supported by scientific validation, and persistent testing and systematic study to prove or disprove, are essential to the revelations of truth beyond doubt. The hint is in the writings of historic scientific investigators and those who contributed to the Declaration of Independence.

While people have a right to their beliefs, at least to some degree in the West, knowledge advances wisdom which transforms civilization, not by mere conjecture based on opinion, but by intense study, rigorous testing and analysis, argument and dispute. Additionally, belief systems either transform over time, or remain static prone to stagnation. Regardless, continuous introspective assessment within each individual is essential.

Further, ongoing discourse is vital, as each ought to understand the other given their perspective, time and place, maturity, experience, innovation, growth and discovery. As most are where they are at a point in time, based on at least the forgoing, but also their selfless attention to rigorous analysis of their ideations that channel into propositional viewpoints. Disagreement is indispensable, while peer review is a fraud, unless the laboratory, or the crime lab, the microscope proves the assertion at hand by the physical nature of scientific validation. Alternative philosophical fascinations often remain fixated on unsubstantiated illusions.

Ideological claims are insufficient without the stringent testing of evidentiary authentication by the weight of physical realm provability. As to that, beliefs, especially those of an occultic, supernatural or cultic philosophical standpoint are immensely tainted by the bias of subjective validation. Key to the maturation of experienced real-world credibility includes the degree to which transformation has chosen a higher path of informed enlightenment. While everyone should labor to transcend their personal egoistic intentions, most will be unwilling to concede their self-interests. Unfortunately, arrogance contrives to make pseudoscience into a science.

For non-practitioners in the various schools of philosophy, particularly those who transferred from the classroom to the faculty room, and never set foot in the real world, the challenge of credible scientific validation remains daunting. So much so, that “field research” often passes on as anecdotal observations, interviews, surveys and speculations regarding other research. In the regurgitation of previous opinionated speculations, sometimes, a facade of “scientific” is attached to the inquiry. Sooner or later, others begin to accept the “scientific validation”.

The gamesmanship becomes even more pervasive as that public begins to accept ideological perspectives as “conclusive proof” of an unsubstantiated claim. While some investigators have tried to foster a round table discussion on issues of “real science” versus “pseudoscience”, as well as “peer review” versus critical analysis, the experience has been less than satisfactory. Particularly in the world of academia, where fantasy sometimes becomes a defensive theory, challenges to the pretentious allegory of fiction masquerading as fact, usually invites severe reaction.

To claim or otherwise perpetrate the illusion of a science, a particular school of thought, or ideology, etc., does little to promote problem solving in everyday matters of human behavior. While various doctrinal and dogmatic traditions assert a scientific basis, the reality is such that a claim of using “scientific methodology” is a shallow appeal the practicality. By the convolutions of magical thinking, it is a leap of faith from theory to evidentiary validation. And, in the 21st century, reflecting the words of one scientist, people may have forsaken the ability to distinguish between science and science fiction. Personal bias skews every point of view.

For the inclination to subjective validation, bias enters every query. Control of that predisposition by way of some effort at objectivity is vital to any investigation. Accordingly, this suggests the influence of the investigators personal beliefs. Attempts have been made to identify preconceived notions and their influence in relation to ideological partiality. Depending on the survey and the organization conducting the survey, results may vary to some degree. In this regard, one study of religious inclination by a major research agency, as pertains to a “belief in God”, suggested little of 80% of the participants believed in a “higher authority”.

That is to say, the majority claimed a belief in a divine being or supernatural entity that influences their lives. On an education basis, those with graduate degrees were reported to have a believability range of about 70%. Of course, the temptation here is to speculate on the influence of belief systems and the claim of “scientific methodology” among the pseudosciences. Where two thirds of educated persons believe in the supernatural, how does that impact objectivity?

The illusionary intricacy assumes many parts of the whole. Taking belief systems from “cultic”, or dogmatic sources, the comingling of presumptive errors compound the mythic proportions by which fallacies of inference transition to accepted hastily drawn conclusion. In collusion with multiple facetious claims, unsubstantiated by the organic rigors of physical evidence, whether microscopic or cosmic, viewpoints, opinions and gossipy flirtations mutate into grotesque forms of imaginative superstitions. In most controversies of argumentation and debate, as regards human behavior from a mental analysis, interactivity of interpersonal exchange should be cautiously anticipated.

One or more participants may not have achieved sufficient maturation.

To confront or otherwise interact in more profanely productive ways, a certain degree individualization is necessary. Bias, prejudice, immaturity, inexperience, lack of close contact with reality, and so on, stifle energetic intensity for enlightened liberation. As suggested in the forgoing, dogmatic and doctrinaire beliefs constrict visionary processes. This suggests probable generational rift, as younger generations may not have arrived at levels of competency strengthened by years of experience, education and personal transformation. Mature, adult, grownup and wiser insightfulness requires extraordinary investment of well-differentiated selflessness.

An example of the youthful indifference to adventurous discovery outside the monogamous constrictions of institutional conformity, comes in the form of limited and defensive perspectives. One aspect is easily attacking alternative points of views, such as the ease by which schools of thought in psychology quickly condescend the medical specialty of psychiatry. That is fascinating intrigue of extraordinary bias, especially considering the roots of psychology. Opinions are not evidence of extraordinary discovery for the complete explanation of human nature.

But of course, in mainstream American society, any conjecture can be accepted without question as scientific efficacy. Of which, the frauds perpetrate the worst afflictions over a weakened society. In a dumbed down culture, self-imposed of course, anything is believable. Plus, bias reflects the academic arrogance of fearful, self-absorbed, child-like infantile narcissism. In this, as for example within the collegiate communities, academia perpetrates the fantasy as fact, absent materiality of scientific proof. And yet, the hypocrisy runs rampant.

On the offensive, in a celebrity worship culture, any actor of famous characterization can pontificate on any social issues and be accepted as authorities. While free speech is one thing, and an opinion is good anyone else’s, expertise is quite an exception. Opinions, gossip and rumors are not evidence. To use one’s wealth, status and influence is not equitable.

Where bias clouds conjecture and otherwise influences conclusions, observational misinterpretation hazes over the reliability of personal perspective. All utterances should be suspected of cognitive bias, as eyewitness testimony is subjected to cross-examination. Yet, frequently, to leverage one’s apparent status of supposedly famous stature and notoriety, to espouse an opinion as though fact or scientific validation, is to use the force and effect of egoistic intimidation. It is insulting and abusive to presuppose one’s socio-economic political status is more relevant than some else. Power and privilege do not infer intelligence.

Such arrogant notions, as for example a Hollywood actor, blabbering about guns and school violence are essentially private opinions. Often such blathering are superficial for fame and personal promotion, and avoid any semblance of scientific or evidentiary authentication. Unsubstantiated speculations do more harm than good and serve to mislead others. In the use of wealth, pretense of authority, and presumed reputation, many frauds are perpetrated.

Given the nature of egregious fallacies of inference, public policy can be adversely affects, as politicians tend to be easy targets of pseudoscience. Such exhibitions of notoriety use the unfair advantage of material success to promote a particular economic or political agenda. Often the result is further erosion of any aspect of intellectual discourse to serve the greater good, or protect the general welfare of the republic. Too frequently, stupidity advances instead of wisdom. When the four horsemen enter the scene of societal interactivity, pseudoscience quickly becomes the imposter impersonating the reality of scientific validity. Fiction replaces fact.

A very quick admonition is to exercise a sense of healthy skepticism by common sense application of cynical analysis. People say and do what people say do because it’s what they desire to do. Claims, assertions and studies of any kind are to be carefully investigated by testing the data, insisting upon replication and ensuring scientific efficacy. At one of the inquiry is the immediate understanding that correlation cannot be confused with causation. Regardless, the intentional collusion is committed every day in the not so hallowed halls of academia.

In the non-science realm of philosophical speculation, anything is possible. Pseudoscience can easily concoct an explanation and assert a correlation as a causation. While comparing an apple and orange side by side, one can infer the relationship as examples of fruit. In terms of a distinctive differentiation, a dissimilar nature emerges. Nonetheless, many can easily conjure along a simplistic continuum claim a specificity of correlation to causation generalities. No matter what the facts may show, some will insist every apple is actually an orange.

Since the comparison of the fruit was conducted over a bushel or a basket or two, the observational bias, and the resulting survey assessment, extrapolate a very broad generalization. Given the fruit’s family tree, seasonal abnormalities, and agricultural inequities, it is easy to infer that all apples and oranges are exactly the same. In other words, one template fits all. After labeling one or more as “bad apples”, or “rotten oranges”, the diagnosis, or cultivation, transitions to a “cure”, which typically means a drug therapy, or pesticide to kill off the psychic contagion.

In the end, a question lingers in the haze of magical thinking, regardless of protestations and threats of retaliation for political correctness violations, and that is what does the scientific evidence show? Followed up by, what does the blood test, x-ray, ultra sound or other lab test reveal? Offenses are easily taken when serious speculation challenges viewpoints. However, when consensus, or by majority vote, a theoretical construct becomes a “diagnosis”, skepticism ought to fill the void in the empty spaces around the special conjecture.

The insightful inquisitor chases every element of claims said to be true to the exclusion of every other possibility. Unfortunately, in a devolving society, facts are easily circumvented for the satiation of the most convenient and simplistic explanation. Of which, conjecture is not really an explanation at all. Speculation as to the superficiality of an alleged “mental illness” issue is an opinion based on a theory. It is centuries old dogma exorcizing demons, or fortune telling masquerading as “criminal profiling”, or pseudoscience pretending to be science.

Doctrines of the supernatural are schemes of myth, magic and metaphysical suppositions, for which something called faith accepts undefinable phenomena. Faithfulness to an ideology does not insist upon the rigors of scientific validation. Meanwhile, in the hypocrisy of belief, if 80% of the population, including adherents of certain schools of “social studies”, believe in things supernatural, bias of speculation has been influenced before the fact.

So, bias influences conclusions about one thing or another, while observations of the biased inquirer has preconceived notions as to subsequent observations. In conjunction, designing a form of investigation, or model to be tested, in conjunction with predisposition aforethought, influences the outcome determined in the results. To this primordial mix, throw in “scientific sounding” jargon and anecdotal references similarly supportive, and a whole scheme of conjecture becomes believable. Now add a spiritual dimension, or occult symbolism, or doctrinaire admonition, and eventually the unsubstantiated claims will be accepted. By politicians, pundits and the public. Willful acceptance follows the easy path of simplistic acquiescence.

Easy trouble free receptivity does not provide the motivational basis of in-depth inquiry. To say that “it turns out that”, “it has been reported that”, or “it is assumed that”, and so on, does not substantiate anything. In fact, to the contrary, immediate challenge should be issued. Any and all claims are to be vigorously tested, debated and questioned. Alleged data ought to receive critical analysis, while opinion, rumor and gossip are never to be accepted without thorough investigation. Likewise, jargon, labeling, and so-called diagnoses from a philosophical viewpoint are to be questioned without hesitance. Included in this inquisition is any pretentiousness relative to anecdotal claims of supposed credibility. Similarly, faith proves nothing.

Motive, means and opportunity is an illusion. This typical “crime solving” rubric sounds nice in a movie or television drama. The public finds this sort of simplicity easy to digest. However, it is misleading. At best, a starting point. Nonetheless, such a perspective can be misleading and counterproductive. In a classical criminological spectrum, such admonitions by an inquirer are meaningless unless evidentiary substantiation suffices the authenticity of scientific validation. Every critical analysis invites the provocation as to whether or not an issue can be elevated to a scientific sufficiency by matters of reliable proof of technical authentication.

Absent serious evidentiary verification, credible legitimacy and substantive multifaceted verification, supposition based on opinion remains insufficient. As research comes in many forms, and data often manipulated to ensure subjective validation, intense scrutiny of any claim is essential. Otherwise, conjecture, assumption, inference, and so forth, are speculative points of interests that demand deeper investigation. To the reference of motive, means and opportunity, yes, fiction writers are fond of any phrase redundantly torturing one cliché after another.

Outside the hardcore sciences of forensic analysis, the “soft sciences”, “social studies, or more adversely the pseudosciences, perpetuate grievous fallacies of inference that render an assortment of hasty generalizations. Especially in detective fiction, movies, television, etc., the repetitive nature of fallacies of inference unfortunately carry over into the real world. Unfortunately, people will believe anything. Faulty conclusions, lazily drawn through the zeal of immediate gratification for a definitive “singular theory”, erroneously pontificated upon cognitive bias, results in unsubstantiated conjecture. This sets the stage of divisive social policy and hastens the eventual demise of the human species. That point relates to the regressive inclinations of human devolution. In a world losing the imaginative edge of innovation, the decay of analytic insight, and the loss of rational methodology, self-serving infantilism invites a dystopic set of consequences.

Observing post-election vehemence in the grotesque rhetoric of condescension is but one example of a regressively adversarial trend in the American society. An entitled sense of retaliation for perceived claim of “victimization”, irrationally justifies a “get even” mentality. Selfishness, the grand scheme of personal enrichment, easily allows the seduction to any mythic or supernatural means to exert power, control and domination over others. From the standpoint of personal belief systems, influenced by ideological extremes of one form or another, the baseless claims of over-simplification justifies egregious fallacies of inference clinging to hasty generalizations.

Lacking the backbone, expressing cowardice in avoiding courageous actions toward wiser ascension, and degrading the freedom of individuality, the social mainstream exhibits an illicit collective consensus that conspires to stifle mature growth. In the process of perpetual putdowns toward another perspective because they disagree, expresses the erosion of the free exercise of competitive ideations. Maturation to higher states of mental and physical individuality demands fortitude beyond the normal routine of daily interactivity.

In addition, such evolving transformation bears the signpost of pointing in the direction of an attendant possibility toward a more probable outcome of higher self-realization. Across the superficiality of social media and “opinionated” news reporting, the shallowness of bloated “mindless” conceit wallows in the shortsighted inebriation of degrading arrogance. As such, anti-thinking pervades the array of communal connections with a range of nonsensical notions for the sake of emotional reactivity. In support of the status quo consensus of myriad small-minded illusions, meaningful levels of rational understanding stifle the elevation of society.

As alleged in one major publication, representing one of the four horsemen (criminology, psychology, sociology and theology), an author for the “psyche” realm accuses religion as being representative of faulty reasoning that leads to magical thinking. In so doing, the claimant suggests gross errors of “cognitive bias” in the spheres of religiosity and the paranormal. The argument proposed is that such things are the result of wishful thinking not scientific validation.

Such is a fascinating notion emanating from field closely allied to the psychological aspects within the arena of “social studies”. But wait, one could offer by contrast that the “four horsemen” are very closely related in that real science is not a strong element in their entrenched domains. All such accusations, claims and ideological perspectives devolve to speculations based on philosophical biases. Hope springs eternal in the non-reality of subjective validation and ensuring consistent patterns of simplistic conjecture. As such, the status quo remains secure.

What Is An Internet or Web Marketing System?

There always seems to be some initial confusion among my customers as to what an Internet Marketing System really is.

Some of my customers think that it’s just a website set up along with some social media pages. Yes, a website is a feature of a marketing system, but it’s only one part.

Others think that its social media or email marketing. While those are elements of an Internet Marketing System, a complete system entails those elements and much more…

We’ll talk about it more in a few days.

Developing An Internet Marketing System

When developing a new concept for a system, my first rule is to find out what my prospective client wants and needs to accomplish. It’s true, they always say they want “leads”, but what kinds of leads? How do you want to attract those leads and what do you want to offer them in exchange for joining your list?

Many customers know that you’re going to email them and that they are going to see your posts and content on a consistent basis. But what’s most important for you to know is how to develop your marketing system to attract the right target customer and what you are going to offer them in exchange for their interest.

A few days ago, I saw a great ad on Facebook that was offering something that interests me. The ad was written very well and the banner design was attractive. So I clicked on the “Get More Info” link.

Yet, it took me to a lead page that asked me for my contact information without offering me any incentive to give it. The truth is that now days, your request for the prospects info needs to be accompanied by an even trade in their minds.

Of course I clicked away from the page and today I only remember the feeling of not wanting to give up my info so quickly for nothing.

However, a better experience that same day was when I clicked on an offer for free training on how to market a platform I know very little about. I went to the lead page and got immediate free content on how and why I should acquire his program to expand my marketing abilities.

This marketing system took me on a journey about his program. While on that journey, I thought about how I could use this program, not just for myself, but also how my own customers could benefit from it.

I saved his training page to my favorites and added it to my list of products to buy and use.

So as I design an Internet marketing system for an entrepreneur, we contemplate the journey that the prospect is going to take through the system.

What is your prospect going to feel and experience at each interval? How are they going to naturally engage with the system?

My clients and I know that we have to attract them throughout the entire process by getting them involved in the experience instead of the marketing system. Therefore the web marketing system should be built seamless and virtually undetectable.

So the Internet marketing system begins with a great post or ad about the problem your product can solve.

Then it takes them to a lead page that gives them more information about how that solution will benefit them.

Next you offer them a great incentive to learn more about that solution in a series of emails.

Lastly, they get introduced to the problem solving product that you have to offer along with some great bonuses that they didn’t expect.

If you build your offer around the benefits the owner will receive, then you can make it a seamless process.

Next we’ll talk about how long the marketing process takes. I have some great tips on the 90 day sales cycle.

How to Choose a Paraphrasing Service?

Choosing a paraphrasing service provider?

On academic discussion forums and social media, a key dominant question asked by MA & PhD students and academics is how to find and how to choose the best provider of academic paraphrasing services.

This question is sometimes asked after disappointing experience they may have been through, as a result of choosing the wrong paraphrasing service provider.

Apart from their need for proofreading services, while doing their research papers, academics and postgraduate students often need to cite a source or refer to a quote from another author, and here lurks a risk of plagiarisim if they only just copy and paste it. They need to frame it in their own words and style, using different words and structure whilst conveying the original intended idea.

It is perfectly understandable why things sometimes go wrong for some students and academics who need a paraphrasing service.

First: Wrong choice

The first and key mistake is simply that they had chosen the wrong service provider. They might have been misled by all flowery and eloquent language used by those providers in their description of their services.

Second: Failure to compare

Almost all paraphrasing service providers offer clients, particularly new ones, a free sample option. Basically, any student or academic keen to make the right choice should take advantage of this offer.

The more samples you get from providers the better because it will help you compare them all against a certain number of criteria (quality, speed, cost). If you are dealing with a provider for the first time, it is always best to test them first through the free sample option. Failure to do so quite often results in disappointment.

Third: Source of problem

The poor quality of a paraphrasing services is certainly the result of a lack of knowledge about the art of paraphrasing.

Paraphrasing is not about replacing one word with another or replacing one sentence with another using synonyms. It is more about a full grasp of the original text, digesting it and then converting it using a different style, structure, terminology and tone.

Unfortunately, many students and academics complain that providers they had tried gave them a paraphrased version that was easily detected as plagiarised. Detecting lifted or plagiarised content has never been easier, thanks to available pieces of software such as Turnitin.

So, it is highly advisable for students and academics who are after a professional paraphrasing service is to make your research well about the best provider, test as many providers as you can and then compare the quality of their service. Only then you can rest assured that you have made the right choice.

How to Organize a Speech – The Satisfaction Step

An essential part of any speech is the satisfaction step. This is the point during your speech when you give your audience the solution to their pain.

During the satisfaction step, you want to provide a number of solutions to the problems that you outlined in when you were reminding your audience of their pain. Only 1 of the solutions should be to hire you or buy your stuff.

The purpose of your speech, is to get people to want more from you. You want to help people as much as you can when you deliver your speech. Give people actionable information, tell them the what, the why and even the how.

If you’re worried about giving people the how, I can assure that it is not possible for you to give away all of your trade secrets in an hour or less. Give people something that they can use.

Not everyone will be prepared to take you up on whatever it is that you’re selling. There are many reasons for this, they may not be ready to buy and just need a little bit more, or maybe they just don’t have the financial resources to buy what you’re offering.

Regardless of the reason why they won’t or don’t buy from you right then and there, you want people to walk away from your presentation wanting more and feeling good that they listened to you. You want them to feel like they got a lot of actionable content from you and since you never know who is in the audience, you may get invited to speak at larger events where you’ll have the opportunity to deliver your message to more people.

The Power of Being Controversial to Land More High-Quality Clients

I love reading about companies that go above and beyond for their customers.

Companies like Disney, Zappos, and Amazon.

And, another one I’d like to add to that prestigious list is Tesla.

Check out this tweet:

“Flat tire on Sunday. Called Tesla, git a loaner tire within 40 minutes. Today they came to my house to replace the tire in 10 minutes. Scheduled to come back to fix a small issue next week. What other car company does this? @elonmusk @TeslaModel3 @Tesla #mobileservice” – @cjk7216

When I saw this tweet, it reminded me of an interview with Jeff Bezos… I think it might have been around 1998 or 1999… anyway, he said something like this:

JEFF BEZOS: “If there’s one thing Amazon.com is about it’s incessant attention to the customer experience. End to end.”

JOURNALIST: “But you’re not a pure internet company.”

JEFF BEZOS: “It doesn’t matter to me whether we’re a pure internet company or not.

What matters to me is to provide the best customer service.”

Not going to lie, I’m a massive Jeff Bezos fanboy.

His obsession with his customers and his almost incessantly long-term way of thinking is phenomenal.

Now, you might not have a business at the size of Amazon or Tesla (yet). But if you’re serious about growing, you can — and should! — use the principles behind what both Amazon and Tesla does for their customers.

But how do you create a fantastic customer experience?

Especially if you’re a solopreneur, for example?

One way is through your personality.

Of course, in my VERY biased, but also VERY accurate opinion, writing emails, blog, or social media posts, all have the potential to make your personality shine.

And if you own your personality, good and bad, you will 1) automatically repel those people who are not a good fit (you don’t want them anyway), and 2) you will attract the people who LOVE what you have to offer.

Case in point:

  • Kanye West
  • Tony Robbins
  • Donald Trump
  • Beyonce
  • Barack Obama
  • Howard Stern
  • The late, great, and esteemed, Stan Lee (RIP)
  • Even people like Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk

What all these people have in common is “polarization.”

You either love them… or… you despise them.

The point is, you have an opinion about them.

And that’s why they’re successful — in THEIR own way.

Look, I’m not telling you to start blasting out tweets, Donald Trump-style.

But what I AM saying is that you have to own *your* unique personality.

The worst thing that can happen to you and your business is when nobody gives a damn. If nobody cares, you can’t influence them. So, in a certain way, sometimes it can actually be more profitable to be disliked.

It’s about appealing to the right people, so you’re able to serve them in a way that’s natural to you… and… in a way that your clients will love.

In the next email you send to your email list, try this:

Write out your email as you normally would.

Then, take a critical look at everything you’ve written.

Try to notice where you could add what I call “Value Inserts.”

Here are a few examples of Value Inserts:

  • Humor
  • Stories
  • Images
  • Quotes
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Controversy (yes, this can also be valuable. However, don’t be just controversial just for the sake of being controversial.)
  • Links to other resources

There are many more, but these are just a few I thought about off the top of my head.

Do this, and your material (both free and paid) will immediately stand out.

Ten Things to Love About America on Trump Days

In 2008, America was the first western industrialized country to elect Barack Obama as a non-white Head of State.. In 2016, ehe pendulum swung backwards in the election of ultra-white media-made business tycoon Donald Trump. As Trump rolls back progress made under Obama toward global cooperation in critical areas such as climate change and health care, it may help Americans to review what makes their country so great.

1. America has a great foundation. The 1776 Declaration of independence states that the new country freeing itself from England is based on an inalienable human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

2. The 1786 Constitution set out the rights that would be protected. Those include the right to free speech and freedom of the press, the right to assemble and right to bear arms.

3. Amendments to the Constitution spelled out rights not foreseen by the forefathers in line with their intent. Thus, one-time slaves were acknowledged as full citizens, as were women with the winning of the right to vote.

4. The law rules in America. The ingenious part of the Constitution is its separation of the country’s governing powers into three branches, one that makes the law,another that puts is into practice and a third that mediates when the other two come into conflict. In the ned, the Constitution wins.

5. America provides legal protection. During the 250 years since its founding. America has developed a legal system in line with the constitution that ensures the rights of its citizens. That evolution in law goes on. As the Miranda law today protects the rights of the accused, legislation now is in the works to regulate gun traffic in the country..

6. America is helpful and forgiving. Social aid is available to those in need and bankruptcy laws get others out of financial troubles. Legal recourse is always available to those who feel slighted. When in doubt, call a lawyer or two.

7. If legal relief for a grievance is unattainable or out of reach, America is open to media outreach. If ticked off and unable to get action from landlord, the city or business, Americans are freed to contact media that in the US are fan-friendly, starting with local presses and stations.

8. America is friendly. Yes, America as a complex nation of immigrants sees daily violence in the jews but that is not the American norm. Conflicts are inevitable. They are put into perspective by a walk to the local bodega. The Mexican ot Indian behind the counter is there to please and that is the real person behind the currently scary label of immigrant.

9. America is the land of opportunity for change. Americans have a Constitutional right to assembly. They can organize marches, sit-ins, sit-downs and walk-outs. All that;s needed is a motivating cause. America gives the aggrieved the room in which to collectively express their displeasure.

10. America loves to party. A land of immigrants provides for holidays throughout the year. The all-American 4th of July and Thanksgiving Day are among the greats. Others include St. Patrick’s Day, Istaeli Independence Day, Puerto Rican and Caribbean Days That’s not even to mention New Year, celebrated by all the wide world over.

The list could go on and it builds with the thought of just how lucky are those who are in America. The path through 2019 may continue to be stressful but 2020 will bring an election and a Census conducted every 10 years. That will count us all without regard to status. Everyone here now is a resident, equally grateful to smile on a neighbor who could be from anywhere else in the world.

Best Business Models On The Internet

There are two main ways people make money on the internet. The first is the Influencer Model and the second is the Lead Collection Model. Learn how they work, what the process for each is and see how you can use them to start earning money online in this article.

The essential difference between the two is that one is slow, but free, while the other costs a lot more money, but can be up and running a lot quicker.

Influencer Model

The Influencer Model is slow but free. It’s the one most people online start with and there are many success stories out there.

Your main goal for this model is to generate a lot of traffic.

The way you do this? Create and post a lot of content.

You’ll have to be consistent and prolific with the content you create. You can post your content as part of a blog, on social media or YouTube.

It takes a lot of time and effort to build a following, but if you put both in you will have a solid base to start earning money online.

With the Influencer Model you create income by placing ads beside your content, using affiliate links or by selling premium content or goods.

Lead Collection Model

Leads are people who have expressed a desire for what you have to offer. They have already expressed an interest in something you sell, so you reach out to them and try to convert your leads into customers.

The most important thing, then, is being able to contact your leads. The easiest way to do this online is with their email address. You could sign people up to a newsletter and get in contact with them.

If you are set up on social media, people who follow your account are your leads.

You could attract leads with online content, but that’s the Influencer Model. But with the Lead Collection Model you buy your leads instead. That means you get them a lot quicker.

You profit by making sure you are buying leads for less than what you earn from each one. It is the fast but expensive approach.

Which one is best for you?

You have to think about your goals and approach before selecting one model for you. Do you want to get traffic by being a consistent content creator? The Influencer Model is probably the one to go for in that case.

If you want to create a system that makes more out of each lead than it costs to get them, the Lead Collection Model is the one to look at then.

Which Model Is Best For Affiliate Marketing?

Both can work with affiliate marketing. A blogger or social media influencer can recommend items to their readers and earn commission. Affiliate marketers can buy leads and convert them into customers as well.

Each has positives and negatives. Knowing each can help you figure out which works best for you.

Autism Apps: Tech Showing the Way

Most of us use apps on a daily basis. A majority of the smartphones, tabs, and other handheld devices run apps that allow us to catch up on the news, connect to the social media, and help us play games.

A leading California-based computer and technology company recently organized a “hackathon” for autism in their campus. More than 100 software engineers of the company and advocates for autism came together to develop touch screen apps for children with autism. The team members, working with autistic children, began developing apps to help them overcome challenges. Some of the apps include verbal and speech learning, games, and communication assistants. These new apps would be soon released free on the internet and will encourage children to learn according to their individual interests, develop communication skills, and forge a social relation with other children who have a common interest in technology.

These apps for children with autism have the potential to greatly improve social and communication skills. In a study about an autistic child, scientists used video inputs and FM audio trainers to see whether the two skills improved by using these devices. After a few weeks of research, the child showed substantially increased attention to auditory and visual cues. The new apps for children with autism being developed by the tech company, will use these cues to help develop behavioral and communication skills.

Most children today know how to use a tab or smartphone. They use it largely for playing games. The innovations at the “hackathon” will draw on the ease of using a touch screen for autistic children and allow them download apps that are both educational and fun.

A study of the new technology of smartphones addresses the old method of picture exchange communication system (PECS), and compares that to updated communication systems running on apps. Laminated cards were used in PECS to teach and improve social and communication skills. New technology allows digitization of these cards on a touch screen. Educators, children, and parents find it much easier using the new PECS.

Motivation to use apps for children with autism increases with the use of smartphones, computer, or other touch screen devices. Technology is becoming a more important way to provide fun and easy ways for autistic children to socialize and communicate. Many schools have already introduced apps in their curriculum.

Technology is engrained in our lives, starting at a young age. The advent of the touch screen will help children with autism learn important life skills. Everything from communication, social relationships, independence, to auditory and visual learning can be improved with these apps.

A heartwarming story about how apps for children with autism can change a child’s life, is the case of Jordan, a young boy suffering from the disorder. Jordan could never communicate verbally when he was young. But technology has changed his life. His touching poem “Silent No More” describes his journey from a boy who couldn’t communicate, to someone who now has immense potential in the communication technology domain.

Improving Academic Writing Skills With Problem and Solution Papers

Academic writing is built by being able to argue a point. These points are self-created and self-taught and all are created with the same structure in mind. This structure provides a template and the template provides somewhat of a stable model for these arguments to surpass or even grow further. There are many different types of thesis documents and many of which have their own unique way of arguing for a thesis and one of them is the academic writing structure, problem and solution. This means that when a person provides information on problem and solution information that they are literally creating a problem and then providing a solution to it and solving that issue.

Academic Writing Techniques With Problem & Solutions

The individual is taught to find a problem and then recreate an opinion on how to solve that problem, but it is entirely theoretical and isn’t applied in the text, but does develop some academic writing skills and a knack for relevance. Most writers will often times grab obvious issues in constructing a solution while building facts and statements to argue the point which is exactly what the structure is said to accomplish.

The Purpose Refined

The main purpose for this is to find a topic that is an issue or a problem that the writer suggests, is a problem in the first place and then provides supporting arguments stating that it is indeed a problem. Once that has been clearly mentioned the writer then goes about providing a solution based in theory in an attempt to solve the problem theoretically before any application actually takes place. Whether they intend to solve the issue or not is not stated and does depend on the type of academic writing assignment that is involved and what the student has created for themselves.

Problem & Solution Topics For An Essay

These documents are applied in business and scientific proposals for supporting methodologies like the scientific method and researching documents for academic writing and various other types of issues that require a layout before the action begins.

These are some topics to improve your academic writing skills

Increasing Energy crisis demands reform

Global warming equates to increased legislation

Preventing social media

Getting out of the

Eliminating manipulative people

Preventing self-bullying

Eliminating the influence of ignorance in society

Learning from different cultures

Improving interest in science

Solution for illegal

Eliminating drunk driving

Improving free speech

These topics often have more of a definite idea to them, although they don’t have to be so defined in terms of what they are meaning. There could be information that takes a few different areas and sees what the combination is or otherwise includes something else into the mix.

Improving Academic writing skills takes practice and does make a difference when practice is done. A consistent effort to learn something new while making a bid for something else.

Technology Inspires Social Change: 21st Century, An Outlook

The prominence of technology in the millennial person’s life remains noteworthy. With the introduction of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr, to name a few, there are countless platforms for global interaction. From transnational marketing campaigns to communal events, social media has set a benchmark whereby information travels across the World Wide Web. Safe to say, these podiums have been subject to life-altering events over the course of the past few years. Governments and NGO’s alike have propelled campaigns and ideas across social media to create awareness and revoke public reactions. The manner in which effective social media has taken the generic populaces by storm is truly revolutionary. Technology has equipped the unheard majority with an opportunity to voice their concerns about issues that affect health, lifestyle and the environment.

All of us have either heard of or taken part in viral social media campaigns that have reverberated as driving forces to creating a better world. Social media is out to target positive reform at the roots of society by creating evocative responses from the public. Now, we are more capable of cumulative change than twenty years ago. Whether it is to uplift a brand image or raise funds for a social cause, social media has done it all. These efforts have impacted billions worldwide.

The dawn of the 21st century could not be more optimistic for those who are out to make a difference in the world. Here are the success stories of instances where technology inspired social change. Here is how social causes went viral on pop media to inspire successful impact, changing lives by generating a singularity in consciousness amid diversity.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:

Lou Gehrig’s disease, termed ALS is a condition that affects nerve cells, the brain and causes drastic consequences to those affected. In August 2014, the ALS ice bucket challenge went viral on social media to promote awareness for ALS research, a disease that has no cure. The challenges required people to film and post a video of dumping cold water over their heads and nominate others to take up the challenge within a 24-hour frame. With celebrities and notable officials taking part in the challenge, it was only a matter of time before close to 20 million videos went viral on social media, contributing to the cause. Bill Gates and Geroge W. Bush were among those who took the ALS ice bucket challenge to social media. The response to the campaign favourably rose over $115 million for ALS research, exhibiting the compassion that humanity can pursue to help those severely affected. Besides creating awareness of ALS, social media served as the footstool to aiding research while creating a sense of unity.

#WaterIsLife presented the #FirstWorldProblems Campaign for clean water:

Water is Life, a non-profit organization aims to bring clean water to lesser developed and developing nations. Initiated in 2007, today they have helped bring clean water to people who live in remote villages across the world. By stressing on the differing approaches people have towards having clean water, with the #FirstWorldProblems hashtag, Water is Life managed to capture the hearts of millions. Social media played the vital role in carrying their incentive through the global platform, eventually creating awareness about clean water and provoking action towards improving the water crisis the world faces. With the #FirstWorldProblems hashtag, when people voiced concerns over minor inconveniences, it was retorted with life-threatening realities that many in other parts of the world face. By raising millions of dollars, Water is Life is the perfect example of the prominence of technology when it comes to positive change.

Mannequin Challenge:

At the peak of 2016, the internet went bonkers over the Mannequin challenge videos that went viral. The posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram featured an internet video trend where people appeared motionless usually with “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background. The challenge received worldwide acclamation as notable sports persons and celebrities took part by creating videos to go with the popular #MannequinChallenge. Most recently, as part of the feature film “Black in Blue,” sequences of such motionless videos were recorded, shedding light on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign targeting racial prejudice. This powerful campaign surely remains as one of the most creative viral social media challenges till date.

#LoveWins Campaign:

Lots of people face challenges with sexual orientation and commonly when it comes to love. LGBT rights have been debated topics for centuries, often resulting unfavourable outcomes. The Love Wins campaign that went viral on the web was a showcase of acceptance, celebrating legislations passed to acknowledge LGBT rights in several countries. As on-going protests pave the way to equal rights in some of the other countries, this campaign is a stepping stone stressing on love and liberty. By embracing free-thought, #LoveWins is an expression of the freedom of choice. With many attractive filters and tweaks on social media, the campaign picked up the pace in celebrating the triumph of love over bureaucracy.

#MeToo Campaign:

The words “me too” are fresh in our memory as we just entered into 2018. As a silence breaker against sexual harassment, the #MeToo campaign has taken social media by storm. Celebrities have joined in on the social cause to promote awareness and take a stand against sexual harassment and prejudice globally. With millions of people rising to the occasion and voicing their stories about the harm of gender inequality, the campaign set fire to the media world. Conveying the magnitude of sexual prejudice, the social cause is trending on every social media site. Starting out as a hashtag, the campaign has evolved into a supporting cry against sexual harassment exposing offenders and instilling newfound confidence for victims. Public figures worldwide have honoured the noble intentions of this controversial campaign, voicing concerns. Most recently, with Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the 75th Golden Globe Awards, she shook the world with tough words against sexual prejudice, equal pay, honouring the strength of a woman. The campaign has served as a say for millions and helped transform hardened ideologies in industries that turn a blind eye towards sexual prejudice.

Social media has once again penetrated the minds of populaces, encouraging change and expressing genuine concerns. Ignorance can no longer be justified by the claim, “I was not aware.” United by the common ideals of love and humanity, technology continues to inspire social change. Even if reality becomes harsher, there will be a glimmer of hope that reveals potent human endeavours that refurbish hope.

Warrior’s Credo: Part 6: Free Will Fosters the Force of Freedom

Free will takes to the joust of disbelief, as many forsake the essence of one’s capacity for the freedom of choice. In lieu of liberation, most prefer enslavement to an ideology of deterministic oppression. Others, a valiant few, will fight on and resist the simplistic complacency of safe mediocrity in status quo consensus. Instead of the influence of logic, creativity and transformation, all often feelings devolve to selfish arrogance of antisocial contrivances.

Maladaptive and regressive, pitiful excuses for the stupidity, shape modern narratives from one alibi to the next. Frequently, responsibility hides with accountability the darkness of human motivations. While integrity searches for the lost horizons of credence, common sense takes exile. Human systems, influenced by over-lapping human interactions, devolve to the consumptive pursuit of consumer gluttony. Intellectual advancement suffers.

By neither dogma of original sinfulness, division of the fall, nor misbegotten hindsight of original righteousness, motivational factors are matters of rational selectivity. A cause is set into motion by willful and well-chosen targeting of specificity. With malice aforethought, premeditation and intentional purposes, instigation are set to motion. Yet, the complexity of human thinking dares the intricacy of psychological magic for purposeful instigation.

One suggestion for a linkage of personal freedom in a credo of self-reliance potentially relates to the nature of human consciousness. Complexity is too simplistic to define the wholeness or totality of such manifestations. Not to forget of course, the necessity for personal proclivity in creativity, the innovative criticality of self-transformation. Many will not change. Regressive resistance will satisfy most satisfied with the less than creative banality of life.

Devoted attentiveness to self-evolution, beyond the stagnant fixated selfishness, remains a daunting mission for most people. Except for the few who will risk dangerous and treacherous trek of differentiation, many will stay behind. The more one asserts his or her freedom of choice, contrary to the concession of normalcy, the greater to the observation of how little others change. Deviation is a rational process of selectivity in spite of what contemporary neuro-gurus claim.

For a number of fearful reactions, emotional sensitivity in perverse self-righteous subjective validation, particularly in the “hallowed” halls of academia, proclaim deterministic exclusivity. By dogmatic determination, many from the realms of pseudoscience in “social studies” defame the liberation of the human mindset. For them, free will is an illusion. Regardless, the valiant ones press on in the persistence of individuality to foster higher forces of personal freedom.

While evil grins, death leers and the pompous piety of those who smirk in their conceit. Evil is a metaphor to express the damage done to others for the satiation of egoistic proclamations. Evil encompasses the notion of malevolence, horrors, tortures, crimes, oppressions and so on, that humans do to each other for the sake of self-enrichment. Such is the narcissistic infantilism of the post-modern era in which one condemns others who disagrees regardless of evidence.

Back and forth, the ebb and flow, and the eventual demise of the human species for the sake of selfish aggrandizement. For the sake of intentional malevolence, with careless disregard for an evolving process, animosity and condescension inflicts tortuous consequences for illicit purposes. Sometimes, these perpetrations are by pretext of intellectual subset to the nasty invective toward another who might take issue with the former. As such, bullying comes in many forms.

Within the cerebral context of constant chemical actions, in complex organic functions, one can only guess as to the actuality of inner cause and effect. Regardless, freedom is essential and pervades the insistence for willing effort to think in rational terms. Absent reliable scientific validation beyond any doubt, by weight and proof of evidence, everything else is a matter of opinion. Although thinking errors are easy, logical efforts are challenging.

Scared, overly sensitive and self-victimized by perceptions of a false reality, mindset dulled and expression muted by magical thinking, stupidity finds excuses. To assert a possession of free will threatens the ideological dogma reinforced in status quo shallowness. One size fits all, the template in the same, a standardized production of consuming robotics in human form. None of this is really new, as things seldom change where human beings are concerned.

From an individualized perspective of willful instigation, some view freewill as that which fosters the birthright of freedom. The transition from self-evolving status, to higher transformation, becomes a life-long insistence to assert liberation. Shunning the seedy misguided entanglement of labeling, stigmatizing or unsubstantiated diagnosing, assertion of independence casts off social bondage. For some communal enslavement is preferred. For others it is proactive engagement with life in a mature grownup way. Not many grow up, as juvenile captivity pervades.

In the great chess game, the knight holds the lead. His or hers is the tactical advantage. The move most valued is a procession of change. By stealth and audacity, the fighter fights the good fight. Ronin, as an archetype, pursue the passages ignored, despised or neglected. Of shield, spear and sword, he or she carries the struggle in multidimensional perspectives. To transcends the conventional and provoke the exceptional, warrior-hood is not for everyone.

Spartan-like, the warrior prepares always for the simplicity of the unconventional. He or she strives to keep things simple, basic and austere. It is a utilitarian perspective. As to wealth and power, domination and control, such things of little interest. Those are proclivities for an earlier time of juvenile narcissism. Likewise, gluttonous consumption is repugnant. Regardless, the warrior investigates all probable opportunities for the sound application of logic, reason and rational application. Practical utility is important without excessive gain.

The plain fact of the matter is, valiant few do not need much in the way of materiality. Except where the mental energies are concerned, the universe imposes the only limit. Mind over matter in both defense and offense as well as recreation and meditation pursues the primacy of thinking. These possessions are in constant generation, as is the necessity of constant creativity. Exceptional storehouses of ideation that build upon inherent ingenuity embrace the personal adventure. Unceasingly, he or she performs the diligent duty of readiness for exploration.

As to all personal senses, beyond the realm of the traditional five, keeping watch, vigilant and mindful, warriors labors to manage the egotism of their personal abilities. Profound serious thinking becomes a daunting task for many. As usual, sheep rely on the sheep dog to keep the wolves at bay. To no avail, some of the more clever predators manage to get through. Betrayers are constantly in our midst, proselytizing the dogmas of conformity. Fearful recesses of darkness hide the profane emotional animosity against those who seek to break free.

Often human engagement meets with opposition due to the maladaptation of others. People are well equipped with deception and their private agendas conceal their true intent. There are always those who act more in self-interest than others do. Predators are always around and appear in various forms. Some pretend while others offend. Teetering ever so precariously along the continuum of human motivations, the balance between essential goodness struggles against malevolent intentions. Alertness remains essential at all times to every possibility.

For a few, vigilance keeps watch and stays on task regardless of distractions. During which, warriors embrace the willfulness to achieve a finer sense of maturity in the presence of wisdom’s council. As many devolve, the brave ones evolve. In vast domain of social intercourse, resisting the psychobabble of simplistic notions challenges at every moment. Proving and disproving conjectures, creations and connections is an ongoing endeavor. To keep the watch, invokes the vigilance of self-evolving transformation, especially to the negativity of modern times. For the weak, the self-righteous projection of psychobabble safeguards their ignorance.

Aside from the compelling admonition of willfulness, the ability to admit wrongfulness, forgetfulness or thoughtlessness is productive to an ascendant personality. Not so with detractors, as their bullying comes in many forms. From schoolyard simplemindedness, to the cowardice of public policy makers, and pundits of narrow opinion, the negativity of the modern era degrades the advance of social civility. Wisdom does not unfold from cowardly trespasses upon the sanctity of another. No matter what the guru or celebrity worship, the foolishness of selfish condescension parades as children in adult form. Behavior is intentional and premeditated.

Where the warrior does not strike back, the fools perpetrate their frauds. As to physical, psychological or both, the intimidation attacks in many ways. For battles won or lost, all is essential to personal liberation, nonetheless, there is a time to ignore and move on. In short, no excuses, no complaints, no denials, just get over it, grow up and engage the next conflict. Much of which is a matter of spiritual warfare that relates directly to purposeful acts of liberation. For the sake of individuation, surrender is not an option, perseverance is vital to survival.

Free will frightens the simple and most learned, for it is scary to know one commands the very essence of himself or herself. Powerful, extraordinary and psychically multidimensional, those depths, where screams echo from dreams, expose the reality of fearful personal potency. As to this salacious energy of cerebral power, many cower and hide behind a mask of fakery. Especially from the inner darkness, which some might call the Id; there is the greatest possibilities of productive creativity. The desires, the sensuality and the libidinous carnality of real human nature, terrorizes the weak, the timid and the stupid. Many run from such powerfulness.

As to that, some will conjure the conjecture of external influences. Academia is full of theories in the multitude of simplistic explanations. However, for the stupid, they are reckless and endanger the others for the arrogance of their idiocy. For them, they are always right and, like most of the mainstream, and social media “experts”, they will believe anything that serves their purposes. When risk enters the picture and begs indulgence in faulty decision-making, adversity contends with the reality of purposeful necessities. Risky notions are part of the quest, the adventure.

Willfully, by over-simplification, factious generalization, faulty thinking lends credence to the authenticity of disbelief. From which, conspiracy theories abound. As such, failures in concrete solidification of the truth give way to fallacies of inference that merge the mythic misconceptions of reality with surreal manifestations of fearful childish reactions. Along the way, rational processes are intentionally subjugated for the satiation of fiction over fact.


Of people, places and property, the interaction of linkage overlays emotional attachments, whereby some assume their divine right of domination. Unfortunately, since most are woefully ignorant of history’s vital lessons, the learning process is stifled at a grade school level. Certainly, a reference or hint might infer that in academia there are supposed intellectuals with advanced degree status. However, a warning is flashed in brilliantly urgent red colors, beware of the pretentious nature of academic achievement. Mature wisdom, ascension to higher altered states of enlightenment does not come easily, especially by any degree granting authority.

An assumption is often made that brilliance flows from an institutional setting. But so does ignorance, immaturity, and selfishness for personal agendas. Likewise, foolishness escapes from other institutions as well. There are always exceptions to learning competences, much of which transcends from the real world experiences. On a real life playing field of practitioner versus theoretician, the one who practices what she or he preaches, is likely better equipped. Connectivity to the interactivity has its price tag when idiocy comes into play.

Liberation of individual will has associated cost factors for such detachment from the status quo. Animosity for differences, biases and prejudices, and all kinds of biting sarcastic invective, rush to judgement, and so forth infect social engagement. The warrior insists upon his or her constant vigilance. Human interactivity does not always necessitate communicative interface in a positive and productive manner. Engagement in the human process has benefits, drawbacks and disadvantages, as most will detract and vent negativity due to their shortcomings.

Negativism in postmodern instances is more prevalent than ever before. Often, this is a matter dependent cowardice, depending upon place, status and influence. Some inducements to interrelate foster networks that negatively intermingle to be counterproductive and mostly destructive. Nonetheless, for the valiant knight of life’s persistent engagements, he or she will likely have the greatest impact for oneself, and not much for the rest of world.

Saving the world is not the primary objective. Becoming a better version than the original self is the prime directive. Individually, there are opportunities to express the capacity to encourage change in others in one form or another. Alternatively, as some warriors have done, another option may be to select disengagement completely. Self-proclaimed exile from the juvenile narcissism of modern days is an enticing possibility. In spite of the psychobabble to the contrary, one does need others in order to succeed in a personal quest for higher ascension.

Essentially, in the end, the darkest hour to cross the great divide, the big sleep, nothing matters after that. When the light go out and it get really dark, that’s it. No one comes back. In time, no one cares. All is forgotten, doomed to repetition from one era to another. Regardless, for being in the present moment, there are times when isolation from the battles entices the sensory seductions for the betterment of personal liberation. Such are free will acts of differentiation. To be alone becomes a strong temptation and necessary companion.

On occasion, solitude may pull the lure of pleasurable appreciation for exploration of multidimensional possibilities. For the hunger, the thirst and lust of an open, free and adult conversation, the sanctity of being alone is a hollowed experience. Talking with oneself is a freedom few will know. Meanwhile, others will argue differently. For the amative self-aggrandizement of their cognitive bias, some will insist upon their public validation. Yet, for another level of free will expression, libidinous drives foment the ideation of extraordinary creativity. Privacy of is a sacred retreat for the brave and bold.

Communal consensus is not always so fascinating, nor is collective constraints the ideal of social productivity. The charm of interactivity with others wears off quickly and has limitations. While not everyone may be suited for the island of personal exile. Paradise comes in myriad formats of personal perception. Sometimes, solitary personal placements have their encouragements. Yet, autonomy has a lack of sovereignty in a perfect sense. Freedom is misleading. Absolute freedom is an ideal conception. It is not just a matter of being free, but a deliberation upon the consequences of its cause and effect upon all the senses.

Free will invites the liberty of divergent conflicts no matter what the fear of others. Blameworthiness collides with one’s striving to move onward, along with accountability and responsibility. Openness to exceptional possibilities encourages the nonconformity of personal conviction to escape the entrapment of others. However, when remorse, fear, and guilt are allowed to shame individual self-directed action, unproductive dysfunctional conformity sets in. This geometric progression of human devolution hastens the eventual demise of the species. As personal responsibility falters, chaos and anarchy join forces. Accountability ends up with accumulated losses to the detriment of civilization. Even though the opposition and the challenge to social conforming has its risks, only a few brave ones will accept the challenge. In opposition, the vast majority will insist upon the cowardice of their gluttonous collectivism. The many will accept the contrived perpetration of those that demand mindless conventionality.

For the warrior mindset, willful rebellion to oppressive tyrannies do go unchallenged. The blessed sanctification of solitude, in the potency of ultra-rationalization, with wise control of bias, is the antidote for the wild spread of arrogance in the cultivation of stupidity. Being alone, meditating rigorously in the sweat of intense ideation, the laborious quest for wiser ascendency never ceases to hunt for the liberation in transformation. Fighting back, resisting and arguing ethical precepts in wisdom versus ignorance, to ensure a righteous sense antagonism.

Purposeful in the drive to strive to achieve the fruition of dreams, aspirations and wishes stir the imagination and potency of creativity. Imagination is essential. Regardless of the opposing forces that are ever-present, with their negativity, both overt and covert, the individual perseveres onward against the onset of the zombie apocalypse. That of course is a metaphorical reference to the degrading erosion of culture toward eventual extinction of the human species.

Relentless, and sometime ruthless, the warrior mindset defends the rightness of individuation in personal liberation. Freedom of the will fosters release from social bondage. To erect obstacles and throw up barriers at every turn, the less evolved, the inept, and the detractors will find opportunities for their schemes. Cowardice grimaces upon the faces of the fearful, who know only weakness and forsake acts of courage. Ethical weakness abounds everywhere.

For the negative people, instead of being crafters, artisans, or warriors, they will perform their role as betrayers and steal from others. No matter what the risk, however, the energies of warriors configure different alternatives that are productive. The pleasure of gainful enrichment for being free stimulates the expectations of perseverance. Yet, free at no cost is unrealistic. Everything has a price and always carry risks. Likewise, as faith in the invisible bears no allegiance to the tangible, the ethical admonition is to the betterment of oneself with no harm to others.

Warriors know the physical realm, and yet go to great measure to explore the other realms of existence as well. From streams of dreams to wakeful conscious endeavors, based on real-world experience and trust in oneself, he or she will prevail by strenuous exertion of self-determination. However, as others protest in the smug piety of self-denial and fearful selfishness, they condescend others. To this, a warrior connects validity in oneself as a worthwhile investment, and endures to ascend to higher planes of self-evolution. He or she does not forget the real value in the experience of the conflicts of life. Without exposure to the darkness, there is no sense of the light. The usefulness derived from the struggle possesses meaningful consequences for learned ideation. From cradle to safe haven, there exist no meaning without the falls in between.

Meanwhile, in the devolving chase of never growing up, the pursuit of Peter Pan’s Neverland, many relish in the primordial slide into their selfish perspective of infantile narcissism. An ever-increasing crescendo of weakness over courage, and cowardice over conviction. Metaphorically speaking, one might argue there is a growing shopping list of “social irritants” that might hurt someone’s feelings. Or, worse yet, a presupposition that a person ought to feel safe everywhere, under every possible condition, he or she must be protected from anything threatening.

From safe places to “gun-free” zones, to adult “time outs”, protected “speech” and lengthy medical warnings, etc., the condescending vagaries of selfish behaviors is regressive. From a societal perspective, an apparent lack of moral courage, loss of confidence in self-reliance, and fading adventurous spirit now characterizes the malaise of a devolving culture. Instead, free speech is viciously under attack, with the ongoing invasive assaults on open uninhibited discourse. Malicious intentions of “thought police”, with presupposition of their ignorance and arrogance, clamor to control social media and mainstream interactivity with tyranny.

To the warrior, or those of a Spartan mindset, such admonitions of illicit power, domination and control, are grievously repugnant. Noble inclinations, in pursuing a tactical mindset, the valiant and brave ones persevere onward regardless of the opposition or obstacles. Neither contrived consensus nor whiny condemnations distract the warrior from his or her pathway. For the courage of one’s convictions, the risk is in the rebellious spirit of social survival. Regardless of whether or not someone or some group is “offended” by whatever transpires in the moment, a warrior’s credo insists upon self-reliance and determination to prevail against the odds.

Wisdom, benevolence and courage form an historic trinity around duty, discipline and devotion. To be brave is to work tirelessly to be transformed to a more enlightened mindset. Most would prefer to sit by the sidelines in the safe mediocrity of criticizing others. Mean spirited memes of self-victimization foment the hideous hatred of creativity in the courageous few. For the weak and the cowardly, their ill placed adherence to despotic notions, specious conjecture and faulty fallacies hasten the eventual collapse of a once great society. Danger looms closer each day.

From the mindset of freewill that forces individual liberation from the dividing complicities of malevolent intentions, valued principles, and the creed of the cause serves to elevate the senses. Psychic wits know no boundaries. The energy is boundless. Controlled by each temperament of free expression of willfulness. In profound mindful awareness, the potent gradient of each rising thought insists upon the innovative necessity to excel to advanced echelons of intensity.

For the modern Spartan, who challenges life’s amazing spectral array, personal freedom rests upon the relentless pursuit of self-determination. Simplicity for preference in physical necessity, but extraordinary depth of mindful intrigue, the warrior fights for personal autonomy. Forsaking the folly of modern conjecture, battling the incestuous taboo of magic thinking, and rising above the enslavement of contrived consensus for arcane status quo, the warrior perseveres. Whereas detractors bully at every opportunity, the critics rage from inexperienced projections, and the lazy foment the invective of inferential fallacies, the brave ones seek higher truths.

While the republic faces devolving jeopardy, and individual liberty contends with demise, a lone Spartan adherent never gives up in her or his transformation. For them, and their energies expended, quantity never exceeds quality of each experience. Proceedings of thoughts measure the scope of a person in the self-evolving streaming dreams of enlightened expectations. Both on the inside of his or her ideation, as well as the externality of cumulative effect.

To the outside in public exposure, for trials by combat in life’s survival, the offer of deep insight to individual feeling, dealing and reasoning, creativity is essential, in one event after the other. The experience by such, the serious practitioner’s art and craft, is to learn how to know the rightful distinction of willfulness. Not only with that, but the recognition of the great depth and expanse of human evil in its entire manifest forms. For the minions of diminished mindset, the insistence of stupidity pervades every exercise of sensory interpretations.

For the warrior, the quest is not without the trials in every aspect of humanness. Neither is the personal journey devoid of controversy and even life threatening possibilities. As to a central focus regarding the necessity of willfulness, freedom to pursue liberation, there will always be detractors. Modern arrogance of others insists upon the acceptance of superficial contrivances of nebulous notions. Specious and superficial conjecture, absent a profound appreciation of history, along with an evolved maturity, persists contentiously against a warrior’s credo of free will.

Oppression of instinctual desires by obsessions of dogmatic opposing ideologies, particularly those of dogmatic doctrines, may interfere with a personal declaration of independence. As such, the warrior perseveres in his or her choice toward an ascendency of individual liberation. Such energies of mindfulness will delve in dimensional configurations most people won’t want to visit. Because of fear, many hesitate to venture too far from the norm, status quo, or safe mediocrity of shallow expectations. They will acquiesce to the illicit sovereignty of others. Some will do amazing atrocities by groupthink, herding or other collective gangsterism.
