New Year- New You?

By | JIFU Success | No Comments

It’s the same old trope, the one that has come out of nearly everyone’s mouth at some point. While the beginning of a new calendar year can be a great opportunity to reset and refocus, it’s important to realize that nothing will change if you don’t try. If you actually want to make a tangible change in your life, use these helpful tips to actualize your goals in the new year.

Flexibility is Important

Remember when you set goals in the beginning of january that your circumstances throughout the year may change, which could lead to a change in your overall goal. Being kind to yourself and allowing for your objective to change as time moves forward is a very valuable tool. However, it is important to make sure that you are being truthful with yourself about how things might have changed, and adjust accordingly. 

Build on Past Positivity

Think about some things that you like about yourself, or something that you already do that you would like to expand on. For example, if you already exercise two days a week, that’s a great start! Don’t disparage the work that you have already done, just expand on it. Set a goal of increasing your workouts to three or four days a week. The “new” you can only exist if you take some of your positive actions and traits into the new year with you. 

Take Accountability

Holding yourself accountable is possibly one of the most valuable things you can do. Being truthful with yourself about what you are doing (or not doing) to achieve your goals is vastly important. If you feel yourself start to slip, it’s okay, just evaluate the situation. Why are you struggling? What is holding you back from doing the best you can? Is this goal important to me any more? Why or why not? Becoming comfortable with being honest with yourself will help you become more efficient. 

Be Realistic 

Another great thing to keep in mind is to make realistic goals for your “new” self. Don’t choose something that is completely out of reach or unattainable. Dream big, but make sure that you are not setting yourself up for failure. Work towards your big goal by setting your yearly goal up in a way that will put you in a position to achieve the ultimate dream. Consider things like what you have time for and how much work you are willing to put into making yourself a better person.

2021 New Year’s Resolutions

By | Personal Development | No Comments

“What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.” -Vern Mclellan

The end of a year signifies a conclusion to 12 months of goal-setting, achievements, and life lived. Here at JIFU, we encourage our members and affiliates to take an inventory of the past 365 days. What went well? What could be improved on? These are two good questions to ask in regards to the past. However, the end of 2020 brings the inevitable arrival of 2021, which in itself offers another chance to improve ourselves and our businesses. The start of a new calendar year can be the ideal time to begin to implement new strategies that will help you conquer your goals. Be sure to read our previous journal post which offers a few tips on how to implement self reflection into your end-of-the-year routine. 2020 is the perfect example of how sometimes things do not go the way we thought they would. Being able to be flexible and easily pivot to meet new challenges and circumstances is essential in any new year resolution.

As a company, JIFU has been able to use the challenges brought our way as fuel for inspiration. Out of necessity comes innovation, and this year we took that phrase to heart. Previously only known for our travel discount services, JIFU has expanded to include three other massive business trends: cryptocurrency, ecommerce, and self development. Moving into the new year, JIFU is wishing you the best of luck in all your endeavors. Take with you the blessings and lessons from 2020, but venture into 2021 with a fresh mindset, ready to take on the new year. Leave a comment below letting us know what your new year’s resolutions are and what your plan is to achieve them. Happy 2021!

Five Obscure Deserts

By | JIFUtravel | No Comments

Many people around the world are bundled up and huddled down for a long winter. Here in the Western United States, we are dreaming of the sun’s warm rays and short sleeve tops despite several months left of winter. Until the first snowmelt, we have compiled a list of some of the world’s most gorgeous and often overlooked deserts. 

Understanding: Staking

By | Financial Success, JIFUcoin | No Comments

Understanding the ins and outs of cryptocurrency can be confusing, but we are taking it slow with our Understanding Crypto series. The next installment of the series is the important concept of staking. 

Definition 

Put simply, staking is the process of purchasing and holding cryptocurrency in your e-wallet(explanation here) in order to earn profits from it. This is not so different from staking in other contexts, but some people have been able to use it to make a lot of money when the value of the coin goes up. Staking is similar to mining, though it is far less intense.

The difference between mining and staking is that mining relies on the effectiveness of participants to solve hash challenges(proof of work). With staking, a participant can potentially have a higher chance of creating a block when they have more coins locked with proof of stake. 

What is Proof of Stake?

Proof of stake (PoS) is a very important concept to understand when considering staking. PoS is when participants lock coins, the protocol randomly assigns the “right” to one of the coins in order for the next block on the chain to be validated. This happens at random intervals, so the more coins someone has locked, the higher the chances of this happening. 

How Does it Work?

This is a fairly complicated process when we look at the concept in depth, but staking is basically when a user keeps their funds in a suitable wallet. When certain network functions are completed, the user can be paid in staking rewards. 

Each blockchain network has its own list of rules and staking regulations, and each one offers different rewards based on the completion of different functions. For example, some networks only determine staking rewards as a fixed percentage. This is based on public information, so it can be easier to get into. 

Terms to Know

*Staking Pool: A group of coin holders merging their resources to increase their chances of validating blocks and receiving rewards. (via binance)

*Cold Staking: The process of staking coins on a cold wallet. A cold wallet is a wallet that is not connected to the internet, and is essentially a hardware wallet. Learn more about wallets in our e-wallets blog post!

*Block Reward: Refers to the cryptocurrency rewarded to a miner when they successfully validate a new block.

As most of our “Understanding____” series articles are, this is a basic overview of the topic. Please consult other sources and invest responsibility. 

*JIFUcoin is not available for purchase in the US, Columbia, and wherever prohibited by law.

Visualize Your Success

By | JIFU Success, Personal Development | No Comments

Believing in your own success is the most important, but often overlooked, part of actually achieving your goals. Visualization is the very beginning of creation. Whatever it is that you want to create in your life, the wholehearted belief that you will make it happen is a valuable tool in your pursuit of success.These are some of the most helpful tips to help you get on your way to mastering the skill of visualization from Wired For Greatness

“Visualization naturally has to do with the mind and requires the use of both imagination and cognitive processes working together in unison.”

Wired for Greatness

Flex your creativity by using your imagination to create images that encapsulate the best version of your future. Ensure that these images aren’t static and that you incorporate a shifting perspective into your visualization. 

While creativity is an integral part of this process, you must not forget to use the logical part of your mind. Picture that you are actually experiencing the environment in the future that you so desperately desire. This includes everything from sight to smell and feel. This may seem silly, but realize that these small details are what memories are made up of, so it makes sense to add them into your visualization practice. 

With visualization, you are working to make your future a reality. The more you can visualize the future you desire, the more likely you are to create this future for yourself and others around you. 

Listed below are the steps to creating a visualization success story. Download the JIFU2.0 app for more details on how to perfect each step in the process.

Now Step Back

Visualization is a sort of meditative thought practice that sets an intention. It also comes with several positive side effects, one being that you can experience less stress. Just having a clear vision and steps to take will erase much of the worry out of your life. You become more open to changes and different opportunities. 

Additionally, you will be able to focus better because you have a set list of intentional goals to direct your energy towards. In this way, you will become more confident in your everyday life. Feeling inspired to work towards a goal will give your days more meaning and intention. Instead of haphazardly blundering through life, you will have a particular future that each of your actions are meant to make happen. 

These are only a few small steps that can help you get to where you want to be in life, whether that be a personal or professional goal. Visualization is a valuable tool in any aspiring entrepreneur’s toolbelt. Envision your success and make it happen!

Self Reflection Tips

By | JIFUlife, Personal Development | No Comments

As we near the end of 2020, it’s important to look back and consider the past year’s accomplishments. A massive part of that is integrating self reflection into your end-of-the-year rituals. At the beginning of any year, JIFU urges our members and affiliates to visualize their success and the fruition of their goal accomplishments throughout the coming months, and this year was no exception.

Wired for Greatness is a handbook written by JIFU’s co-founder and CEO Jeffery Boyle, in which he offers advice on how to live a more epic life. Module four is dedicated to manifesting your ultimate desires with visualization, and we refer back to this text often. Self reflection is all about taking account of the results of your actions. Whether in business or personal life, taking the time to reflect is not only healthy, but can aid you in changing the way you approach new opportunities. Here are some valuable questions that can assist in any self reflection practice. 

What Were My Goals?

Think back to previous goals you have set for yourself. Were you able to achieve them to your own standard? Consider every goal, even ones that you no longer wish to work towards. Failed projects, pivoted plans, and otherwise unsuccessful endeavors are also an important part of self reflections. 

What Changed? 

Even the most perfectly laid plans go awry, and you can glean valuable lessons from what went wrong. Ask yourself what change occurred that may have affected your actions and execution. That way, you will be more prepared when the same curve ball is thrown at you and your team. 

What is Outside of my Control?

Oftentimes, factors outside of your control force a chance of direction. The only thing you can do when this happens is ensure that your reactions appropriately shift. This is true in business and in everyday personal life, and you can learn a lot from your reaction to outside influences.

What Could I Have Controlled?

On the other hand, we have more control over situations than we realize. Ask yourself what steps you took to achieve a goal so that you can replicate the process in the future. Similarly, thinking back to times when things didn’t go as planned can offer valuable insight into what to avoid in the future. 

These are only a few questions that can help you get started with your end of the year self reflection. Let us know other questions and actions you can take to successfully wrap up your 2020 and move forward into a more successful new year.

Exploring Winter Wonderlands

By | Travel Motivation, Travel Tips | No Comments

JIFU knows that it’s never too early to start planning vacations for 2021, and that sometimes the best form of travel is through your computer screen. We wanted to share some of our favorite places to visit in the wintertime. These are places that shine most brilliantly in the colder months, from snow capped mountain peaks to stunning icicle-covered landscapes. Snuggle in deeper to your comfiest blankets and prepare to be wowed by the beauty of our natural world.   

Queenstown, New Zealand

The first stop on our remote winter wonderland journey is down under. Queenstown is known for its incredible skiing and snowboarding on the Remarkables Mountain Range, which is located near the gorgeous Lake Wakatipu. If you are not much of a snow bunny, the view of the mountain range from the lake is enough to take your breath away (if the freezing air doesn’t first).

Gullfoss, Iceland

Gullfoss is an Icelandic waterfall that is in the canyon of the Hvítá river and is one of the more popular destinations in the region. The two tier waterfall descends 32 meters (105 feet) down. The freezing cold water comes from the great Langjökull glacier, so the mist that sprays from the waterfall is truly refreshing. Because of this, visitors are urged to bring waterproof clothing in order to fully experience the magnificence of Gullfoss. 

Lake Baikal, Russia

Our adventure brings us to the frozen tundra of Russia. Despite the stereotypes that are foisted upon this area, there are many gorgeous natural features that should not be overlooked. One such a place is Lake Baikal, which is known for being the oldest existing freshwater lake on Earth, as well as being the deepest continental body of water. The lake teems with flora and fauna due to the fact that the climate in the area is relatively more mild. 

Jigokudani Monkey Park, Japan

Perhaps one of the most unique and well known of our featured destinations is Jigokudani Monkey Park in Japan. You may be familiar with the images of Japanese Macaques bathing in the hot springs, but the park has quite a bit more to offer. The juxtaposition between the steaming springs that exist because of volcanic activity and the bright white snow that comes along with the park’s evaluation of 850 m (2,800 ft) is truly a sight to behold.

Midway, Utah, USA

Nestled in the Western United States, Midway is your gateway to what seems like another world. From here, visitors can easily access the incredible Homestead Crater. It is a “geothermal hot spring that was created over 10,000 years ago as melting snow went deep into the earth and percolated upward from being heated by the earth’s interior.” You really just have to see it to believe it, and there are many different ways to do so. Additionally, Midway is known for its incredible “ice castles”, which bring fairytales to life. 

Comment below which place you are most amazed by, or any other places that must be explored and experienced in the winter months.

Personal Branding in Affiliate Marketing

By | JIFU Success, JIFUlife, Personal Development | No Comments

As network marketers, we strive every day to share quality products and services that offer outstanding value to our customers and members. JIFU affiliates are the lifeblood of our company, and a massive part of what makes our business model so special.

The individuals who we work with know how to not only market JIFU’s services, but are skilled in marketing themselves. There are five basic reasons why it is vastly important to build a successful personal brand in network marketing. These are helpful tips for someone who is just getting into affiliate marketing and they are great reminders for seasoned veterans. 

1.Credibility

When you establish yourself using your social media platforms, a website, or in person, you are able simultaneously establish yourself as reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable about the company you are representing.

Part of this is making sure you know answers to potential questions that clients or buyers may have, as well as having a good understanding of the company you are partnering with. It is also important to have a good rapport with corporate management, so as to become more aware of the company culture. 

2. Uniqueness

While it is important to represent the partner company accurately and correctly, it is as equally as important to add in your own unique marketing flavor. You are probably not the only affiliate that is trying to sell the products and services, so making yourself stand out is imperative. 

Oftentimes, loyal customers come back time and time again not only because of the products, but because of the connection they feel with the salesman/affiliate. Being able to achieve a perfect balance between the company’s brand and your own personal brand is where you will find immense success. For example, JIFU offers brand assets for our affiliate partners to use on their social medias, but it is up to the affiliates themselves to use those tools in a way that will make them stand out from the masses. 

3. Become a Leader 

As an affiliate marketer, you understand the value of selling products, but it is valuable to “sell” yourself as well. Build your personal brand on the foundation of leadership and knowledge, and you will establish an environment where buyers and members feel comfortable asking you questions. This will lead to a more committed customer base. 

Some things to consider when you are building your personal brand include consistency, professionalism, and coordination. These things will help you construct your online presence in a manner that sets you apart from less dedicated and experienced affiliates. 

4. Know your Audience 

Be aware that your personal brand attributes to who your audience is, so it is important that you are consciously working towards a specific audience. Despite that you are not the only affiliate, you are the only YOU, so use that to your advantage. Different affiliates can attract vastly different audiences, so don’t get lulled into a false sense of boredom. 

5. Strive to Reach a Goal 

We have talked about setting and achieving goals before, but a massive part of that is allowing your personal brand to set you up for success. Each affiliate has their own personal goals when it comes to their business, so you need to evaluate your plan based on what you hope to achieve. 

You may want to become a top earner who makes more money than any affiliate before them. In which case, you would want to set aside a lot of time to speak with professionals, work with your team, and take your position in the business world very seriously. On the other hand, you may want to earn some extra income on the side, but affiliate marketing is not your main priority. In this scenario, you may not become comparatively successful, but your workload would decrease significantly. 

These are only five of the best tips that we have to offer when it comes to establishing and creating a personal brand. There are many more ways to do this, and JIFU.com offers the tools you need to become successful. Check out the website if you are interested in learning more about our affiliate program!

How to Develop Self Consistency

By | Personal Development | 25 Comments

It’s the same old story, you know what things you need to do to make yourself and your business better, but you can’t seem to form good habits out of them. 

Self consistency is the key to success, whether that be in your personal or professional life. Self discipline and consistency will change the way that you make decisions and live your life. Here are five tips that will help you get to where you need to be. 

1. Know yourself 

There is no fix-all solution to increasing your self consistency and discipline because everyone is so different. You know the way that your mind works better than anyone, so it is important to pick strategies that work for you. This does not mean to avoid challenging yourself, but to find healthy ways to do so. 

2. Set Priorities 

When you start with a non negotiable and set priorities to your goals, being consistent will seem far less daunting. You will also be able to use your time wisely, devoting the most time to the highest priority goal and less time to the objectives further down the list. Be sure to reevaluate your priorities as other factors shift and change. 

3. Develop a schedule that works for you 

It is vastly important that you find a way to schedule your work. There are a number of ways that you can do this, from buying a good planner, setting reminders on your phone, or anything else that works for you. Test out different methods or draw on your own knowledge of yourself to pick the most effective way of scheduling work.  

4. Hold yourself accountable

This step sounds easy, but this is where most people trip up. Don’t be mean to yourself, but make sure that you hold yourself accountable when you don’t reach a goal. You can do this by writing down your goals and progress. Breaking your larger goals into smaller, more achievable daily goals is another good way to hold yourself accountable. 

5. Have an accountability partner

Doing all of this alone can be overwhelming and it can be hard to hold yourself accountable. If you have a partner in business or a best friend who you can rely on to remind you of your goals, you can begin to develop more self consistency to avoid disappointing your partner. 

These are just a few examples of how to increase your self consistency, though there are many other things that can also help with this. Use these tips and any others that you find in your dedicated research, and you are well on your way to a life with more consistent habits.
