You may or may not be an internet marketing expert. Perhaps you are striving to beone. No matter where you go, we live on 24 hours a day, and even if you are a superinternet marketer, there's always a limit to what you can do with the time you have.
There are three major categories of internet marketers. The first, is thesuper-hardworking sort. You are the kind that works literally 16 hour days as ifthis were a job you could be fired from. Unfortunately, you overwork, and you burnout quickly. Your family complains about your lifestyle. You don't have balance.
The second is the one that ding-dongs from hard work to no work. You churn outcontent, then you sell them, make your money, then go on vacation. You are theepitome of active income, because without activity, you have no income.
The final one which is by far the smartest, is the one that builds residual incomestreams. By this, I mean building an income stream that works without you. If youhaven't learnt how to build income streams, you probably aren't really able to buildmuch residual ones. However, this should be your primary concern, because you willhave to work hard once and then forget about it.
Jay Conrad Levinson, the father of Guerilla Marketing, leads an extremely balancedlife. He works hard for three days of the week and takes the rest off to enjoy whatthe world has for him. If you are someone who desires this kind of life, you willdefinitely need to stop thinking of yourself as the hard working guru. It's a matterof principle. You have more responsibility than simply just making money. You havefamily and health to care for.
The balanced lifestyle has only two basic elements. The first is personal alignmentand the second is goal awareness. Personal alignment is in doing something that fitsin with our purpose and being. If you are not aligned, you'd be extremely stressed.Sometimes, you might think you are aligned, but you might be shocked that I'd sayyou could be addicted. Being addicted and being passionate with what you do are twovery different things, and it isn't easy to identify. What you must realize is thatif you are addicted to it, it could spell disaster for your well-being eventually.
The second is goal awareness. You will need to be more aware of your desires, andthings that require your attention. Do you need to build a better relationship withyour spouse? Your children? How about your health - mental, spiritual and physical?Considering these goals and being aware of how you can dovetail these with yourlimited time schedule, you will begin to realize how much more you can achieve evenwithin the same span of time. Dovetailing is a process of seeing two things andachieving it as though it were one goal. Don't just do internet marketing and becomean internet marketing expert. Be the father who dotes on his family while you are anexpert. Don't just be a millionaire. Be a millionaire that shares with the world.
