Have you ever seen an overweight Personal Trainer? I have. And I’ve sat through health advice from a doctor who smoked.

I still remember a married pair of very successful authors, each with multiple divorces under their belts and now divorced from each other, whose speciality was dispensing relationship advice to couples.

Incongruent?

Of course!

But is their advice invalid? Just because they do not practice what they preach, does this make their advice flawed?

Which leads to this question…

Outcomes

What’s your outcome?

by Pete Godfrey · 9 comments

Folks are busy. Rushing around. Doing more and more ‘stuff’. They think they’re getting lots of things done but in reality, it’s the exact opposite. That’s because…

Many people confuse activity with accomplishment

They do a lot of ‘stuff’ so they must be succeeding right? Well not really.

At my last Mastermind meeting, I stressed the importance of outcomes. You see…

Yeah, Yeah… I know all that!

Something strange can happen when you get a few runs on the board. You can start to feel invincible. Feel like everything you touch turns to gold. If you were a rabbit’s foot, you’d be a real BIG one that’s for sure. It’s a good feeling. You possess a trusted certainty in your abilities; a […]

Freaky Facebook Fast

by Pete Godfrey

Sadly, one of the casualties of the 21st century is the inability of many folks to concentrate for more than a minute. They are like butterflies hopping from one flower to the next; tweeting, checking emails, commenting on facebook, texting, and looking at funny cat videos on youtube. And hey, if that’s your thing, have […]

Wake Up and Live

by Pete Godfrey

I was watching the news the other night when I choked on my cup of tea. I don’t like watching the TV, especially the news and pop culture current affairs show… but… I force myself to do so a couple of times a week. I call it research. That’s because when you elevate your thinking, […]

Shocking Email Blunder Instantly Breaks Trust & Sabotages Sales!

by Pete Godfrey

We all know the importance of email subject lines right?  Subject lines are like headlines in ads; they need to get attention and stimulate interest. (The ‘from line’ is even more important.) So just like headlines, this is where I spend a bit of time, working out the best subject line to fit the email. […]

Debunking The Law of Attraction

If you’re like most of the people I know, you’re well aware of the law of attraction. You know, the old what you focus on you get. Or as Hill said in ‘Think And Grow Rich’, you need a definite purpose backed up with a burning desire to achieve. Which is all good… Up until […]

Constant Daily Improvements

by Pete Godfrey

It still amazes me the amount of aspiring copywriters who contact me each month seeking work, who have not done the most rudimentary study of the craft. They’ve never heard or studied the old greats such as Caples, Collier, Burnett, Ogilvy, Schwab, Cossman and many  others. The guys and girls in my new Apprentice Group […]

A couple of big tips for you today on writing your own copy. I’ve been getting a few questions of late from readers who write their own copy for their own businesses.

Make More Money With A GOAT

by Pete Godfrey

I first heard the term GOAT from old time info-marketer Jerry Buchanan. Jerry first got famous for selling a little booklet on how to remove gophers from your backyard. He then went on and published the very successful, “Towers Club USA Newsletter: The original source for insider news for mail order merchants.” Folks like Gary […]

Who Controls Your Day?

by Pete Godfrey

Now that’s a damn good question isn’t it? Who controls your day? Makes you think. Is it your customers? Your lover? Your kids? Spouse? Any random fool with a laptop or smart phone who wants to throw a question your way? Who? Or do you control your day and make others work around you? Frankly, […]
