Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Art of Influence Workshop conducted by Johnny Wimbrey of Success University. So would just like to share some comments regarding it.
Now it’s obvious how important mastering the art of persuasion is. The power of persuasion can be seen as the ultimate source of advantage in life and work. And it can be the critical separation factor between the successful and the rest.
Think about it. In life, we’re constantly trying to persuade or influence others. Be it during the job interview, presentation to your boss to accept your proposal, or during a marriage proposal, there are many instances where persuasion takes place. And for internet marketing, it’s manifested in your sales copy and email promotions. Frankly, copywriting is the art of persuasive writing.
Hence, by mastering the art of influence will help you to get others to agree with your ideas and take the actions you want them to take. Certainly, the advantages are limitless as it could mean anything from clinching the million dollar business deals or getting your dream girl.
With that being said, how does one master the Art of Influence?

With the proliferation of the Internet and the increasing advancement of technology, our lives are increasingly becoming highly dependent on Info-Communication Technologies(ICT). One of the modules I’m taking at the moment, New Media & Society, discusses this extensively. And the school project I’m working on also relates to this topic as we seek to find out ‘How Dependent Are We On The Internet’ nowadays.
I think the answers should be obvious even before we conclude our report. The Internet has changed the way we communicate, do work, source for information, conduct business, obtain education, make friends… and the list goes on… Relationships are being forged on the Internet today, many of which are even more solid than those being forged in the offline world.
Will there be a limit to the ever increasing dependence on the internet? I doubt so..

Yup.. Just realised that my testimonial is being displayed on Adam Khoo’s SecretsOfSelf-MadeMillionaires.com
Many people have asked me how did I get started on Internet Marketing and how I managed to stay so motivated and start an online business despite having to juggle my studies.
To be frank, I was a lazy and unmotivated student once too. However, my mindsets and belifes changed after reading Adam Khoo’s books. The first was his ‘Master Your Mind, Design Your Destiny’, which focused on NLP, which is basically the mastery of the brain.
Frankly speaking, I was extremely impressed how Adam managed to achieve his first million at such a young age. And Adam started as a juvenile delinquent. Still, he managed to overcome all odds and attain his multi millionaire status today.
His second book changed my mindsets and beliefs about wealth completely. All the limitations and negative beliefs I had about wealth were swept away instantly after I read the book. And that book is none other than ‘Secrets of Self Made Millionaires’
I’ve previously read wealth books by Robert Allen, Robert Kiyosaki and Warren Buffet, just to name a few. But none of them has managed to impact me as much as Adam Khoo’s ‘Secrets of Self Made Millionaires’.
Secrets of Self Made Millionaires is truly the most powerful wealth creation program I’ve ever came across. Not only is it simple to read and comprehend, it provides practical and detailed strategies for you to follow. Most importantly, it alters your beliefs and transform you into a highly motivated and driven person.
And it comes with a bonus 12-Cd set which I listen to it everywhere I go. It cetainly serves as my motivation booster and recharges me every now and then.
Without a doubt, my life has changed dramatically after reading Secrets of Self Made Millionaires. Else, I would still have remained lazy and unmotivated and would never have ventured out of my comfort zone.
I posted a rather long testimonial on SecretsofSelf-MadeMillionaires.com, so I shan’t go on too much about it here. Hence, I urge everyone to just head over to Adam Khoo’s SecretsofSelf-MadeMillionaires.com to see for yourself how this ultimate comprehensive wealth creation program has changed the lives of myself and many others all over the world.
It is truly a must read for every working professional, executives, and simply anyone who has ever dreamt of achieving financial success. Secrets of Self Made Millionaires holds the key and answer to enable each individual to break out of the rat race and attain financial freedom.

This weekend was absolutely phenomenal. The amount of knowledge that Patricia and I learnt was truly overwhelming. Well, due to a very unique & rare opportunity, we managed to catch Johnny Wimbrey & Matt Morris in Singapore and in person! And for free.. (the tickets cost $85 each by the way)
So who is Johnny Wimbrey?
Johnny’s inspirational story of overcoming life’s adversities has empowered masses for greatness. He tells his story and much more in his book Johnny grew up in a battered women’s shelter to growing up on the hard-core streets as a young drug dealer.
After several near death experiences Mr. Wimbrey decided it was time to flip the switch and refused to let his past determine his future. At the age of twenty, he became a temporary licensed insurance agent with no experience, and within six months of being in the insurance industry, Johnny received recognition as a top fifty producer in a national marketing agency.
In less than a two year period, moving from senior agent, to district manager, to regional manager, on to regional Vice-President overseeing the states of Texas and Oklahoma, Johnny found himself in the position of training experienced regional managers to recruit, to manage, and to teach sales development skills for well-known national agencies.
After recognizing the high demand for his services, Johnny decided to use his skills for a higher purpose. His passion is to create success stories by helping others experience financial, spiritual, and emotional wealth. Johnny Wimbrey has been interviewed on national radio talk shows and television networks as a young success story.
Today at 31, Johnny is financially free and ever more inspired to respond to his higher calling and bringing success in many others through Success University.

Many of those who have downloaded our ‘7 Ways To Earn Money Online’ eBook previously have emailed me saying that they are absolutely clueless regarding how they should start.
Now I understand that the most difficult step is the first. But I believe that in my eBook, I’ve clearly laid out the steps you should go about. The first thing you should do is to listen to the audio CD we’ve included in our package.
You’ve got to first establish your driving factor – that is know why do you want to earn money online. You may not be aware, but the reasons to doing something rates much stronger than the methods you use to get the job done.
When you have a strong enough motivating factor, you will naturally find ways to achieve your goals. You know when I asked some of my friends if they see the need to create passive streams of income for themselves, they would say thy do not see a need for that.
However, when I asked them if they would like to create a better life for themselves and their loved ones, their answer would be a resounding ‘Of course!’.
The truth is, everyone wants a better life, but yet how many are absolutely committed to achieving it? And with the changing world today, by relying on one source of income stream is simply placing your future and success under a huge risk.
Hence, start by establishing your driving factor!

In the book “Multiple Streams of Income” by Robert Allen, he detailed 50 Ways on how everyone can save $50 a month. I found it really useful. Well, I’ve come up with my very own 15 ways to save $50 a month. So hope it will benefit you too.
1. Always plan your finances ahead. Plan a budget for the month and stick to it.
2. Watch Movies on Weekdays.
3. Use a piggy bank and deposit all your spare change. Do not underestimate the power of multiplication. Over time, your coins are going to convert into huge amounts,
4. Always ask for a discount. There’s no harm trying.
5. Stop before you buy anything and ask yourself this question ‘Do I really need this?’

The secret of the wealthy is not that they have more money but that they have more time freedom. Because many of their streams are residual, they have more time to spend on anything they want.
So what’s all this comparison between linear and residual income? Income that is paid once for every hour you work is linear. Hence, income from a salary is linear. You only get paid once for your effort.
However, with residual income, you work hard once and it unleashes a steady flow of income for months and even years. You get paid over and over again for the same effort. You get paid while you’re sleeping, while you’re watching a movie, 24 hours a day.
Now doesn’t that idea sound nice to you?
So what are the various forms of residual streams of income?

I shall now continue from where I left off from the previous post. Many may not realize, but money is one of the most important subjects to study in your entire life. Some of life’s greatest enjoyments and most of life’s greatest disappointments stem from the decisions you make about money. Whether you experience great peace of mind or constant anxiety is dependent on the extent you get your finances under control. Similarly, your relationships can be affected by money decisions too. So many divorces have happened because of disagreements over money.
Hence, understanding how the game of money is played can be crucial to maintaining your success, relationships and happiness. Do not underestimate this skill, as it’s one thing which is severely lacking in most people today. They do not invest their money wisely and rely on only one stream of income.
As I mentioned in the previous post, it’s dangerous to do so. As much as people are skeptical about owning a business, there’s one thing that almost all of the wealthiest men in the world have in common. No, they do not work ten times harder. But simply ,they own a business. And most of them have multiple streams of income.

If you have not read the book “Multiple Streams of Income” by Robert Allen, I suggest you go read it. It’s really a good book about the concept of wealth. Let me share with you something which is thought provoking and mentioned in the introduction of his book.
You see, most people will earn at least $25,000 a year. If you were to do the math, more than $1 million will flow through your fingers. Hence, the good news is, we’re all already on track to becoming a millionaires. But the question is, ‘why do so few people ever become a millionaire?’ Simply because most people end up spending almost that they’ve earned. And hence, most retire with little savings.
The reason can be attributed to the fact that nobody teaches us about money. In school, we’re forced to take several compulsory subjects. No doubt it helps in providing a more wholesome education. But we receive no formal education in the most critical of all life skills: how to become financially successful!
You see, it’s not about how much money you earn, but how well you’re able to manage your money that will determine your wealth. Yet, we weren’t taught how to manage money in school.
