Making Money on the Internet – Can You Or Can not You?

Making money on the internet is possible for just about anyone anywhere. There are two things that need to be done in order to run a successful website business or any online business. They're both pretty obvious but lots of folk actually do not do them.

Ok, wait here it comes. They are so obvious they'll smack you in the face. Number one, you have to find a website business which is genuine and which offers complete unlimited training. Now before we all scoff at the sheer obviousness of this comment it might surprise you to know that thousands upon thousands are still, even after 15 years of internet land existence, getting scammed each and every week. They are losing money to false, corrupt, cheating, robbing scammers.

To be making money online you need honesty (there is such a thing in business) together with moral and honest business associates. Here's two quick notes. If you're looking for a business opportunity, always, without exception put the name of the person or company into the search engine together with the word "scam" and you will know soon enough if they are a scammer or not. And equally important is getting a meeting together with that person or company, yes to check them out but also to discuss all the facts before anything changes hands. If the meeting can be face to face so much the better.

Ok, number two. Your website business will actually need you to work at it. Yes, we all know of the "amazing opportunity to earn £ 50K in your first month, working one hour per day" but come on folks, this really does not exist. Do not waste your time like I did and spend two years searching for that millionaire opportunity. Working from home , in my opinion is far better than working a traditional job, but it is actually work. Some folk work three hours a day whilst others work twelve hours per day – but they all work.

So, if you're hiring to be making money on the internet working from home with your own website business remember the two important points. Do not get scammed. You will have to work. (But it is fun though). …

The Power of Self-Approval

Do you want more happiness in your life? Are you tired of compromising your happiness for that of others? Have you ever stopped to think about why you have in certain ways? Do you ever wonder why celebrities and people in the lime light seem to crave all that attention?

Well, one theory is that we have in order to gain approval from others. This may seem far fetched but think about it for a minute. Everything we do in life can boil down to 2 fundamental needs: the need to be loved and the need to be helped. As such, our actions tend to be determined by our ability to please others. This stems from the fact that our mind operates in a primitive survival mode looking to protect us at all costs. This survival mentality was originally formed during our early childhood where, as dependent helpless babies, we learned that it was necessary to please our parents (or caregivers) in order to get what we wanted if it was food or milk, and so forth. If we did not gain this approval, we feared the worst – that we would perish. Fortunately, we are no longer dependent children need others approval in order to survive. However, our conditioning has ingrained in us this need to please others even though it no longer makes sense to do so.

As such, one of our biggest obstacles to happiness in life is our need for approval from others or our need to prove ourselves, our fear of disapproval, and our fear of rejection. It is solely based on survival! Now, the need for survival is gone but the habit remains.

It is important to realize that when we try to please others we are always at the mercy of someone else's response, and then we have no control over the output. When we act in accord with other people's approval, we are saying that their item is more important than ours. We are saying that they are more important than us! According to Abraham Maslow, the world renounced psychologist, "The highest state of man is self-actualization. And the essence of self-actualization is freedom from the good opinion of others." Thus, in order to be truly happy we must dissociate from the bad and good opinion of others. We must learn to approve of ourselves and realize that each and everyone of us is a unique and special person capable of wonderful things. It is critical to understand that we all live in our own little "bubble". We are unique in the meanings that we attach to the information and events in our lives. Simply stated, two people experiencing the same event or information will give different meanings to each based on their own personal experience, upbringing, programming, and paradigms. For instance, the word "battle" may elicit a different mental image or meaning to you then it would to me. As such, how can we seek others approval when they are most …

You Do Not Have To Be a Victim of Identity Theft

One of the worst things that can happen to you is to become a victim of identity theft. If your personal information should fall into the wrong hands it will take you a long time to get your credit and your financial life straightened out. You can be denied jobs, insurance and loans for a home or transportation because someone ruined your credit by stealing your identity. This article will give you the knowledge that you need to protect yourself from identity theft.

Identity thieves can get your personal information in a number of ways. They may steal your purse or wallet or steal your mail from your mailbox. Dumpster diving is a popular way of obtaining your information as they sort through your trash to get their hands on credit card offers or other information that you have discarded. An identity thief may call you on the phone or send you an email posting as a representative from your bank or credit card company. They may ask for your account numbers and social security number under the pretense of verifying your account information. They may even complete a change of address form and have your mail diverted to another address so they can get their hands on it.

Identity thieves are smart and innovative. Never assume that your personal information is safe. As technology advances, so does the opportunities for identity thieves and scam artists. Here are a few ways that you can keep your personal information safe:

O Take advantage of your right to one free credit report per year. Keep a close eye on your credit report. If you notice any suspicious activity, contact the credit reporting agencies right away. Let them know that you feel you have been a victim of identity theft. They can place a fraud alert on your profile so that every new application for credit must be verified by you personally.

O Check your banking accounts daily. Most banks have online access to your accounts. Use the online features and keep a close eye on your checking and savings accounts. Make sure that access to these accounts are protected by passwords that you can set. Do not use passwords that are easy for identity thieves to guess such as, mother's maiden name, your birthday or your social security number or a series of contractual numbers.

O Guard your mail carefully. Drop off outgoing mail at the post office instead of leaving it in your mailbox to be picked up. Shred your junk mail and any other statements before throwing them away. It is best to use a cross cut shredder for this.

O Do not carry your social security card with you. Store it in a safe place such as a safe at home or in a safety deposit box. Have your social security number removed from all documents and forms of communication including your driver's license. Never give your social security number over the phone or through an email.

O Keep …
