1. Small tweaks lead to big peaks-David Crank

We have a hard time seeing what we can accomplish if we have not done so before yet. We can often think that the solution is going to be some huge move some big thing. When really the small things make a huge difference 

2. Create Content over-consuming content

Making content gets results consuming content can trigger comparison.

It is easy to sit and look at analytics when what really gets the result is doing.

 It is a pleasure to meet you! my name is Kramer Ammons and I am a videographer and filmmaker. I love making very interesting videos combining story with videography and tutorials. I love little tips and tricks on how to make your videos stand out above everybody else. I love to make rememberable videos that impact people and their lives. Everything to do with videography video editing stories and connecting with an audience emotionally is what I am passionate about.

Videos can do something that the written word can't do. And that is, it's much easier and much more impactful to create an emotion in the audience while making videos. This emotional connection is what causes people to move and act in their lives. So if we really want to change the world for the better one o... See full profile

1. Life changing: as a content creator. The most important thing to your success is how you think what goes on in your mind controls your body. And if we can get our body to behave, we can do anything and accomplish anything. But it all starts in the mind. This is a short class, and the most important part of this class is that you guys do. The class project will only take you one minute to Dio. So if you don't even get through the entire class, do the course project. That's most important. All the class project is is to write down 1 to 4 sentences. Talking to your younger self. What would you tell your younger self now that you know what you know And then the second part of that is to write 1 to 4 sentences, pretending to be your future self riding to yourself. Now what you think your future self would be telling yourself now to do? I have done this exercise myself and I want to read to you guys. My sentences passed. Cramer, Focus on content. Forget analytics. They will take care of themselves. Do not settle for good enough. You only live once you got one shot, go hard, have fun and never give up. Now this is my future self talking to myself now. Good job. You never gave up. You did the right thing when you did not even feel like it. You set a standard of excellence. And he persisted when they threw Hate you posted through fear and you had faith for the future. And because of your persistence and drive, you made it. If you do this in the project section I promise it'll change your life. I hope to see you in the class. 2. Small tweaks lead to big peaks: David Crank said. Smoke tweaks lead to big peaks One minor adjustment could lead to huge results. Focus on the small, everyday improvements this has happened in my life. I'm I'm dyslexic. And so I've always had a very hard time reading and writing and very insecure about being called stupid and being made fun of growing up in all these things. But my mindset told myself I told myself that I was stupid, that I was dumb, that I wasn't good enough. And my small tweet, my small mental shift waas the words Not yet, because I don't want to lie to myself to be like, Oh, you're the best speller in the world You can read so fast that wasn't true. But if I said the words, not yet, it freed me because I could realize I could actually work on and freedom. So you're not good speller yet. You're not gonna making video scream or not yet, And if I could use yet, that means there's opportunity. And that was a small mental shift for me, just a small, small tweak that changed my entire life. So here's another example. Let's say you want to get better at speaking. Well, you could stand in front of the Mir and talk for one minute to yourself. Just it might sound crazy, but if you talk out loud for one minute to yourself and watch yourself for five days a week , that's committing five minutes a week to something, and after three or four weeks, your speech will improve. So much small tweaks can lead two big peaks. 3. Create vs Consume: create content over consuming content. This is very difficult to do in today's world. Are you consuming content more than you are creating? Are you watching things that make you jealous? Do you watch things that frustrate you? Have you ever watched or read his or her post and felt envious? Here's the truth. Every single person has an emotional tank of energy, some higher than others, but some less than others. And when that tank runs out, we don't really have much energy left for the day. So for spending all of our energy, trying to figure out these things about other people trying to figure out our feelings about them. We don't have the energy in time that's necessary to put into our own content. I'm not saying to avoid other people's content. Lots of times we can consume other people's content for inspiration. We can also consume other people's content, toe, learn. It's very beneficial, but some people trigger us. You know who it is for you who's post. You're just seeing you automatically get frustrated, who you watch, and it's just aggravating. For some reason we are addicted to that bad feeling or can be. I want to challenge you to a race. Those distractions from your life. If you do, you'll be so much more productive in your content because you'll move from consuming content. And then, instead of using all that emotional energy on the consuming part, you'll be able to use that on the creating content part and this mental shift. This just small habit change is going to change how much you're able to produce and content and how well you're able to Bruce your content. But if you're doing a research for your content, don't always just go to the easy Fix the people who might dive into books and articles. You can also look into videos but go into the avenues that is harder. Normally, when something's harder to do, that means less people have done it. And if other people haven't done the research that you're doing this elevator content of of other people, there's a proverb. This has walked with the wise and become wise. Walk with a fool and become fools the same concept. What did your mom tell you? You become who you hang around with. This is so true, but we don't think about this on our content and what we consume. You'd be careful what you consume because you become like what you consume were very affected humans. We rub off on each other for emotional beings. So be careful what you're putting in because that's gonna come out of you. Remember to create content over consuming content. 4. Acting over analytics: acting over analytics. Analytics cannot to be really good for improvement, but they're not the best for encouragement. There is never going to be a time when you don't want more views and more likes more hearts . More, more, more, more people saying You're great if you're a high feedback individual like me and a lettuce will cripple you because what ends up happening is you post whatever it is your story, your video, your book, your music, anything. You go ahead and post and then you wait to create more content until you get that feedback , and sometimes it's better feedback than others. But if we're just waiting for that high feedback before we create our next thing that shows that we're creating just for the audience and not creating for our true Selves and what we really want to create, Kerry at Vanni says, I don't stress about the outcome because I know the only thing I have control over is my own hard work. So long as I'm being honest about that, I'm striving to be the best version of myself. I'm happy. I think that's really good for us to remember. We don't have to worry about the outcome. But if we're striving to be the best version of ourselves, and if we're working as hard as we can to create the best content, we should be happy. There's another problem, says Show me a man who is Gilligan's Labor and he will perform for kings if we focus on our job. If we focus on our content more than what people are thinking about at the moment, we're going to improve in it much faster. If we can improve it much faster, we grow a lot faster and we get a impact. A lot more people and the lyrics are good, but make them be on a weekly or monthly basis, and when you're checking analytics, check it for feedback to improve, Don't check it to feel the approval of other people. 5. People don't like you: people don't like you and that's okay. Be an adult. We shouldn't be making our content just for the approval of others. If you love to teach, create, make move, anything than just do it do with all your heart. You may ask the question. What will they think? We all ask this question. I will tell you some will think you're awesome. Some will probably hate you. Some will think you're gifted and others will think you're dumb produced for yourself. Do your best and just post Remember that smile at the fact that you did your best and another's post and disagree with you? It's OK. We need to be adults. It's OK to disagree with somebody and it's OK if people don't like all of my content. I'm completely fine with that. People don't see the world the same way I do, but something do. And because I'm OK with that, we'll have stronger followers for me because I'm not trying to please everybody. I'm trying to share what I believe is right and what I know. And if somebody disagrees with me, I'm okay with that. I respect them. I will watch them. I'll cheer them on because they're doing their very best. I'm not gonna hate on them, but I'm gonna cheer them on and I'm going to respect them, and that's the most important thing. There's another quote that says the only true disability is the inability to accept and respect differences. Albert Einstein also said something I really like. I speak to everyone in the same way whether the garbage man where the president of the university, if we treat people with more respect, will treat ourselves with more respect. And then we won't care what people think about us near as much. And when we don't care about what people think about us as much, we can be our true Selves a lot better. 6. Consistency creates confidence : consistency creates confidence. I don't know if you guys ever heard this book think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill, but he says it's much better than I could say it's I'm going to read it to you So I'm going to read you a small section that is profound. One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is over, taken by temporary defeat. Every person is guilty of this mistake at one time or another on Uncle of Are You. Derby was caught by the gold fever in the gold rush days and went west to dig and grow rich . He had never heard that more gold has been mined from the brains of men than has ever been taken from the earth. He staked a claim and went toe work with pick and shovel. The going was hard, but his lust for gold was definite. After weeks of labour, he was renewed by the discovery of a shining, or he needed machinery to bring the or to the surface. Quietly. He covered up the mine, retrace his footsteps to the home of Williamsburg, Maryland, and told a few relatives and a few neighbors of the steak. They got together money for the needed machinery and had it shipped. The uncle and Derby went back toe work, the mine, the first car of or was mind and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest minds in Colorado. A few more cars of that, or would clear the debts, then would come the big killing and profits down with the drills, up with the hopes of Derby and uncle. Then something happened. The vein of gold or disappeared. They had come to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there. They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again, all to no avail. Finally, they decided to quit. They shoulda machinery to a junk man for a few $100 took the train back home. Some junk men are dumb, but not this one. He called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advise that the project have failed because the owners were not familiar with fault lines. His calculations showed that the vein would be found just three feet from where the Derby's had stopped drilling. That is exactly where it was found. The junk man took millions of dollars and or from the mind because he knew enough to seek expert council before giving up. Most of the money which went into the machinery was procured through the efforts of our U Derby, who was then a very young man. The money came from his relatives and neighbours because of their faith in him. He paid back every dollar of it, although he was years in doing so long afterward, Mister Derby recoup his loss many times over when he made the discovery. That desire can be transmuted into gold. The discovery came after he went into the business of selling life insurance. Remembering that he lost a huge fortune because he stopped three feet from gold, Derby profited by the experience in his chosen work by the simple method of saying to himself. I stopped three feet from gold. I will never stop because men say no when I asked them to buy insurance. Derby is one of a small group of fewer than 50 men who who sell more than $1 million of life insurance annually. He owes his stick ability from the lessons he learned from his quit ability and the gold mining business. Before success comes as a man's life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and perhaps some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do, more than 500 of the most successful men this country has ever known, I told the author. Their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat has over taken the failures. A trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning, it takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach. Don't stop three feet from the gold when opposition comes. Look at it as this is a point where everybody quits. You can think of it as weightlifting. If you can lift £20.30 pounds. Okay, maybe I can left £40 but most people stop at £40 because it's hard. So whenever I could move to that £50 I passed a bunch of people because they quit. That's the same thing with your content when you keep going. Keep going. I made 100 videos. Well, some people make 100 videos and don't have great success. And so I stopped right then. So we'd say, Oh, maybe it's not for me. Well, maybe it is for you. Maybe you need to get to 101 by getting to 101. You surpassed 500 people that quit out of 100 by you. Persisting whatever it ISS is the only way to have success in it. Because if you quit your done so don't stop three feet away from gold. 7. Project 1 minute you should DO it!!: Hey, in the class project, this is when you really should do. You should really do this. One is really simple to just write down a couple sentences of what you would say to your past self and then pretend that you're your future self and right to yourself right now. What would you say to yourself right now? If you succeeded? What would you be proud of? Write that down. And these can be words you can live by by detaching yourself from who you are today and looking at yourself in the past and then looking at yourself now from a future standpoint will allow you to understand what you believe you should continue doing. Remember, Don't stop three feet from gold. Have a great day.
