Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is something I found today at KatalinaMau.com. I thought it was a great idea for Valentine’s Day. So if you would like some free backlinks, comment on this post! Here is the original. Everything is just the same here.

I have been trying to think of a way to thank all my readers this Valentine’s Day, and to let you know how much I appreciate you. It just wouldn’t be practical to send chocolates, or flowers, or cards. I could send e-cards but that might be a little spammy. So I thought and thought and then I thought some more. I wanted to make sure whatever it was went to my readers, and not those who were just passing through. That’s why this paragraph is a little long and wordy!

So I finally came up with an idea, it’s not much, but it fits my budget! I am giving away links, to everyone who wants one. Here is how it will work. This blog is a do-follow blog and I have Comment Luv installed. That means if you comment on a post you get a link back to your blog plus, comment luv adds a link back to your last post. And of course they are all do-follow links.

Now usually I just delete comments that I feel are blatant self-promotion, but on this post I am welcoming it! I’d like it if you would tell me a little bit about who you are, but if you are in a hurry go ahead and make a one word comment, or no comment. You could even include another link to your blog. (Only one please)

Now only a few restrictions. This is a PG-13 blog so if your site is adult, gambling, or adult pharms, than I’m going to have to say sorry, this offer doesn’t apply to you. And if you like my idea, feel free to copy it. Just please be nice and provide a link back to this post.

A Lesson In Prosperity From The Little Parrot

A big Thank You to Angela Baden for bringing us a story of encouragement and not giving up!

A Lesson In Prosperity From The Little Parrot For Business Professionals and Entrepreneurs
By Angela Baden

I first heard the story of the Little Parrot a few years ago. It comes out of Buddhist tradition and is a striking example of the power of determination and the power of the mind to move the universe. As a marketing professional you can harness this same power to build your business and enjoy prosperity. Here it is:

A small and beautiful parrot lived in a great forest with many animals. One day the forest caught fire and went out of control and threatening to engulf the entire forest. The little parrot circled helplessly above the fire until she remembered the river not so far away.

She flew to the river and dipped her wings into it. And then she flew to the forest and shook little drops of water on the flames. They sizzled away to nothing. She flew back to the river and returned again and again and again and again. Just the little drops of water that she could shake from her wings fell and disappeared in the flames. The great deities saw her from above and laughed at the absurdity of what she was doing.

But one of the gods, moved by the compassion and dedication of this little bird, changed himself into a golden eagle and began to weep. And while the little bird alone could not put out the fire, the tears of the eagle fell drowning the fire saving the forest, the animals and the little parrot herself.

This is a cute little story for children, however, it illustrates a lesson for all of us marketing professionals. Whether it is internet marketing, MLM, real estate, insurance, mortgage, or any business you’re operating from home, this lesson could ultimately influence your financial prosperity.

Let us say, for example, that things are not going as well as you hoped. You have made such efforts. You have spent money on advertising and products. You called friends and family and people you do not know to join your enterprise. You harassed co-workers to buy your products. You bought leads that led to only a few sales. You had rejection after rejection.

You listened to your upline, your trainers, and the gurus. You went to conventions watching them parade across the stage. You attended seminars and workshops. You invested lots in books, DVDs, tapes, e-books, all kinds of tools. What have you got to show for it?

You have all but given up. Your family and friends doubt you. They say you can not make any money. You are silly to to do this. It takes too much time and effort. You start to panic! You agree with them. It is impossible! You can not do it!!

What happened to your dream? You promised to make it, no matter what. However, the fire got too hot. The flames scorched your wings. The smoke was too thick. You could not see those who could be helped by you. It is so much easier to fly away. Everyone is laughing at you.The universe must be telling you it is hopeless.

Okay, Little Parrot, you have two choices. Which one will you make? Will you give up and run to safety, never knowing whether you could make it? Or, will you keep going, learning, seeking until you manifest the power within to find the right person, the right direction you need to help you make your dream come true?

I work with people everyday who want to quit after one or two or three rejections, so I relay my own story of taking the bar examination ten times before I passed and became a lawyer. What if I had quit because my circumstances stopped me? I would never have known the thrill of victory. When I left the practice of law, it was on my own terms, not because I allowed myself to be defeated.

You are an entrepreneur. If something is important to you, do not give up, no matter what it looks like. You do not know what the outcome might be, or who might be inspired by your action. Do not make any more excuses. Unleash Your Power!

Sites To See on the World Wide Web

Truely successful people are always learning, and I spend some time every day getting better at the things I love to do. (Like blogging!) Here are a couple of websites I have found that have helped to make me a better blogger.

Bloggeries is a forum I was visiting regularly even  before I found Project Wonderful and Entrecard! My username is Katalina, so if you drop by be sure and look for me and say Hi!  The Bloggeries forum is a daily stop for me. It is very friendly, active forum about, for, and by bloggers.  I find some of my best blogging tips there.  Plus I’ve made a few friends.

BlogAboutYourBlog.com is a site for  good quality bloggers to come together and collaborate on one big project. We have bloggers from all over the world, blogging about a variety of topics. I just found this site recently through Entrecard and it has become a daily read for me.

And I have to mention one of the big boys, John Chow.  Some people really don’t like John Chow’s site, but the truth is there is a lot to be learned there about becoming a successful and profitable blogger.  Make sure to download the free ebook.  Mixed in with all the affiliate links is some very useful information on how to make money with your blog.
