Emotions: A Blessing and a Curse

A Blessing

Isn’t it nice to feel appreciated, to be loved?

A Curse

But the pain of losing a loved one is almost unbearable, it aches inside of your soul, clouds your mind, and casts a cloud over your countenance.

I looked inside of my own pain this morning and realized that what we experience is but one Polaroid Picture in the billions and billions of pictures in the mind of God.

Thus, I realize how I have it much easier than Him. So, I move to change my perspective while wiping away my tears.

Better to have loved, then lost, than to never have loved at all? That’s debatable, depending on which side of the emotional equation you are standing on.

Life is like a circle, with ups and downs. When you are standing on the down side, it hurts. Remember: “This, too, shall pass.”

May God bless you and comfort you.

Social Status = Influence

If you want instant influence, then learn how to help people improve their social status.

The only thing that persuades people to move toward you or from you is their presumption to whether or not you will increase their status or decrease it.

Most of our decisions throughout life are tied to how we perceive ourselves and how others will perceive us. Think about the following status symbols:

Harvard degree = intelligence

Rolex watch = style

Oceanfront estate = wealth

Washboard abs = healthy lifestyle

Business owner = power

Family vacations = happiness

From the clothing brands we wear to the cars we drive, the schools we send our kids to, and the neighborhoods we live in, from the companies we work for to the places we go to on vacation, all are indicators of social status.

In the book how to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie wrote about liking people.

You can take this a step further by helping people improve their social status.

How To Earn Affiliate Income as a Real Estate Agentfluencer

Objective:

If you’re a real estate agent, then you probably already know that 90% of new agents fail and leave the business by the end of their first year! That’s a BIG problem. My question is why haven’t brokerages come up with a game plan to fix it?

🤔 Not finding an answer from the great wizard of Google, I decided to tackle this problem myself!

One solution that I discovered while exploring the world of content marketing, and began experimenting with, is how to earn affiliate income using product links inside my YouTube video descriptions.

Then my objective became more clear: to earn affiliate income from my CRM database (my farm area lead list) while promoting my brand. How? We make sales by doing Show & Tell, but with household goods!

Video Content:

  1. Food & Beverage: dinnerware, culinary tools, cookware, glasses, wine, groceries, and more!
  2. Birthdays: gift ideas for Mom, Dad, Kids, Teens, friends, co-workers, and neighbors; party themes; invite cards, etc.
  3. Holidays: Valentines, St. Paddy’s Day, July 4th, Cinco de Mayo, Thanksgiving, Christmas & NYE!
  4. Recreation: pool stuff, kayaking, camping, hiking, jogging, barbecue stuff, outdoor bowling, cornhole, etc.
  5. Bedrooms & Bathrooms: towels, towel racks, and toilet paper (oh my)! Linens and things, hehe.

We make sales by doing Show & Tell, but with household goods!

The Framework:

First, start by stating the purpose of your video. Example: For a long time, I wanted to grow out my beard, but I was embarrassed of how old I would look because of all my white hair.

Before

Second, share a personal life story that illustrates how or why you bought product “x” and explain how it solved your problem. Example: But the. I saw this beard coloring kit for men, so I gave it a try. Now I look and feel 20 years younger! I wish I had known about this product before.

After

Third, wrap up your video by including a call to action (CTA). Example: If you’ve been thinking about growing a beard too, or if your husband could use a touch up, then check out this product. I bought it from Amazon here: [product link]. Happy tinting! 😉

That’s a wrap! 🎬
