You guys know I’m normally a pretty tame person. I get enthusiastic and I have a very optimistic view on life. Every once and a while you also get to see my more fierce side and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of what I call “warrior mode” in the future. Why? Because tomorrow is my 25th birthday and I’ve been doing a lot of re-examining. I’m ready to take my business up a notch and I’ve identified a few things that need to happen.
- I need to start outsourcing more often AND more readily. Right now I only outsource when I really need to like for graphics. I minimize how much outsourcing I do and take care of almost all of the work on my own. There isn’t enough time in the day to do everything I want to do in that case. I need to hire a writer or two to take the load off on some of my projects.
- I need to actually release my info products. I have a few half written or more products that I never finished off and released. Why? Who knows. Maybe I’m afraid they won’t sell. Why? The worst that happens is that I don’t sell any. How is that different than now? I gotta put my stuff out there. Besides, I know I’m the type that will do everything I can to make sure buyers get their money worth and I need to give people a chance to see that.
- I need to put more time into my PLR shop. I love my PLR shop and I still make sales. It deserves some real attention like new packs and I need to get back to emailing that list regularly. I actually spent time writing a new pack about video game accessories that I’m releasing on the 15th. (I won’t really be working tomorrow besides posting up some blog posts since I’ll be out for my birthday.)
So, it’s time to get into “warrior mode”.
What is Warrior Mode?
The answer may be a bit different for each of you, but for me it’s my no-nonsense mode. I’m diving in head first and I’m fighting tooth and nail to get what I want. When I say “warrior mode” you know I’m getting serious. Normally it’s reserved for when I’m having some financial difficulties, but not anymore. There is no point in waiting until I’m in trouble to get serious.
Do you have a warrior mode? What does it take to get you there?
To me warrior mode is that moment when you believe in yourself so much you’re willing to truly fight for what you want or need. Notice the word “fight”. Normally I would use the phrase “work for what you want or need.” No, that’s the difference here. It’s not just working, it’s fighting. Sometimes that’s what it takes.
My Warrior Theme
I was watching some comedy videos on YouTube with some friends and we saw this video that was meant to be a silly parody of a bunch of different things but the song in the background really hit me. It says perfectly what I feel when I get serious like this. It also gets me in the zone I need to be in.
It’s the chorus specifically.
(Warning: There is some strong language at the beginning.)
Here are the lyrics to the chorus that really get me going:
Look me in the eyes, you know damn well what I’ve been trying to telling ya – that I won’t back down. I guess you’ve got me confused with somebody who loses because I won’t back down.
I don’t know about you but I thought those were pretty powerful lyrics for comedy video. That’s the attitude I’m going to be going forward with.
Do you have a “warrior mode” or a theme that really gets you going?
