Would you like one of the five very prominent ad spots on this site?

If so all you’ll have to do is purchase my upcoming 99 cent iPhone app on launch day. I won’t need any proof–your word is good enough for me. If you don’t have an iPhone you can simply purchase the app through itunes.

Considering this site received 63,000 unique visitors in 2012, you’re getting a steal of a deal to be paying less than a buck to get an extremely prominent ad on my site for two months.

The ads you currently see to your upper right: They will be taken down and your ad will be put up in their place.

First come first served: The first person who either leaves a comment below or shoots me an email will get to pick which ad spot they want–including the larger one below the ad boxes.

If this offer sounds enticing to you then you can leave a comment below or shoot me an email at ticktocktimer AT gmail.com letting me know you’re interested.

Nothing ventured nothing gained.

You’ve probably heard the above sentiment a million times but have you internalized it?

Some may mistakenly think that past failures means venturing forward with new projects is a a recipe for disappointment. But what could be more disappointing than having life force within you and ignoring its potential?

While failure is a part of life, choosing to resist new projects because you fear failure is failing to see life’s value.

Failure is a risk, sure. But so is leaving your house in the morning. So is driving your car, riding the bus, and venturing anywhere except a glass bubble a thousand feet below earth.

Risk is imbedded in the very fabric of reality. There’s no escaping it. And every moment is an opportunity for change. But without risk, without venturing, the change, and the gain you could have remain but a hope within. Don’t leave your hopes within–use action to make those hopes reality which is what I’m choosing to do now by writing my new book.

My book will be self-published, professionally edited, and on the subject of gaining self-mastery. I think you’ll love it.

For those who have commented on this blog before, you’ll get a personal email from me when it’s published telling you it’s available if you’re interested. If you’ve never commented on my blog but are interested in my upcoming book leave a comment below and I’ll shoot you a personal email once it’s published.

I’ll be selling it on Amazon at a very affordable price. This ain’t no e-book–this is a real book that you can put on your kindle or purchase a paperback copy.

To celebrate my new venture, I’ll be writing more often here.

How to be Ruthless in Making Your Goal a Success

October 24, 2011

There’s commitment and then there’s true commitment. While both forms of commitment can accomplish your goals, one’s far more powerful than the other and creates far greater likelihood of success than the other. For example, you could go on a diet while still having fattening foods in your house and succeed but you can’t say […]

How Quickly Can You Change?

October 10, 2011

Can you change in an instant? Of course you can. How do I know? Because every time you’ve changed it was instantaneous. While it may have taken time to ready yourself for change–once it occurred–undoubtedly–it was instantaneous. What’s important, then, is making the ‘getting ready’ stage as quick as possible. The biggest barrier to people […]

Just Say No to Dogma

September 28, 2011

“If your dogma prevents you from being the best that you can be, you’re essentially committed to mediocrity.” ~Bamboo Forest Dogma is problematic because it generates predicted results. For example: “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” ~Tony Robbins And… “If you do not change direction, you may end […]

The Art of Self-Discipline (And Why it’s So Damn Easy)

July 1, 2011

Last night I had a life changing epiphany on self-discipline. Imagine you have a huge mental burden that you could release if you chose to, but you opt to instead hold onto it even as you write your novel. If you can write a novel while maintaining your mental burden, that means you have amazing […]

Choose Your Identity Or It Will Be Chosen For You

June 27, 2011

While walking in China Town I passed a beautiful gem of a girl working at a kiosk selling pillows. Though, I kept walking. I then realized I allowed my fear determine my identity instead of myself determining my identity. I’m one that approaches a girl when I find it worthy to do so. Fear will […]

Why Making An Effort Is Not Enough

June 22, 2011

The fence is the worst place to be when you want to accomplish something. Staying on the fence creates the illusion that you’re accomplishing something when you’re accomplishing nothing. And the really sad thing is that even though you aren’t accomplishing anything by sitting on the fence, you’re still exerting tremendous effort. Shouldn’t we get […]
