My 5 Year Goals

January 10, 2015

autumn rocker 2

As we begin another year, it is time for new goals to strive for, but this year I’m doing something a little different. I have decided to write (Yes I said write) down my 5 year goals that relates directly to my career choice. During my 2014 research, I discovered that one part of the success process that may have slowed my progress towards my goals, to a crawl, was I never committed my goals to writing.
In an attempt to resolve this issue, I spent part of January 7 writing down my career goals. According to the experts, Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, and many others, when you make your goals, think big, and be specific.
With all this in mind, here are my five year goals.
By January 1, 2020 I will be making 833,334 dollars, or more, per month. I will do this through writing, photography, music, and videos.
Writing – I will write no less than 600 words each day, and will have articles in photography & nature magazines within one year of this statement.
Photography – I will continue to sharpen my skills with nature photography, and will be a regular contributor in nature magazines within two years of this statement. By January 2020 I will have photographs in National Geographic.
Music – I will be able to perform in front of an audience with my harmonica, and be able to play at any level with confidence.
Videos – I will be posting no less than two videos per week, on both channels, and will have more than 100,000 views daily. I will also have more than 100,000 subscribers on each channel.
These are my 5 year goals officially starting January 7, 2015. If you haven’t seen any of my YouTube channels they are https://www.youtube.com/user/apb148 and https://www.youtube.com/user/NaturallyPhotographi .
If you are able to, I would greatly appreciate it if you would subscribe to these channels.
Thank you,

New YouTube Channel Needs Sponsors

November 11, 2014

what comes natural

This blog is a little off from my usual blogs. I have started a new YouTube photography channel. The name of the channel is Naturally Photographic, and I am designing it to teach basic photography to beginners, from the perspective of an outdoor photographer.
I know there are a lot of channels that teach photography, and each one uses a different method. Photography will always be photography, but being an art form, the way people approach it is very personal. After 38 years of taking photographs, and growing up around nature, I believe I can offer beginners a unique perspective without a static setting.
If you would like to see this new channel, I will now supply the link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2IaJTvV8u1BwIJbu3kc5oA
If today’s blog was only announcing my new channel, I would have just put a link, and said “check out my new YouTube channel!” But it does have a real purpose. Having a channel on Youtube is free, and so is posting videos, however, to post quality videos is going to take new equipment, for example, a good computer, with real editing software.
I’m not looking for individuals to send me money; I would never do that. I am hoping that I can find companies who would be willing to sponsor my videos on the new channel. What I’m asking for will cover equipment, promotion, and living expenses so I can devote a proper amount of time to making the best videos possible.
In return for this, I am willing to offer mentions in videos, their descriptions, as well as the company name on the channel itself. If you are a company who would like to sponsor my videos, please let me know by e-mail to allenpbradford@yahoo.com and put “Business” in the subject line.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Controlling Fear

October 23, 2014

One of the things that always stopped me from success is the fear of what could happen; it’s not about what is, it’s about what if. Many of us try to live two steps ahead of the present, imagining only the bad things that can happen; “What if I try to climb a mountain, and fall hundreds of feet to my death.” “What if I can’t handle my new job, and I lose it.” “What if I walk across the street, and get hit by a bus.” While these fears may be in the realm of possible, they haven’t happened yet, and you can avoid them with the proper precautions.
When you let fear stop you from doing something, you are limiting yourself to a life of safety and mediocrity. You are not giving yourself a chance of living up to your full potential, and the best opportunities of your life are passing you by. Susan Jeffers wrote a wonderful book called, “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway”. We all have fear, but if we want to live, we need to act on our dreams in spite of fear; don’t let the fear of tomorrow stop us from living today.
Out of all the books, and audio programs, I’ve been studying; I have never found one reference to getting rid of fear. Fear is a part of us all and spending time trying to get rid of fear only wastes our time and energy. Instead of letting fear stop us, we need to learn how to control fear, and put it in its proper place.
As with all things, fear has a positive side, as well as a negative one. The negative fear will petrify us, and leave us unable to proceed on our journey. Positive fear, once mastered, can warn us of impending trouble, and motivate us to learn what we need to proceed safely through the trouble spots. How can we keep fear from stopping us? There are three things I know that can help you master your fear.
Keep your dreams, and desires, strong. The best method I have heard of is to write down the desire, and read it every day, while allowing yourself to feel the same enthusiasm you felt when you first had that desire.
Be persistent. In every journey to success, you are going to have good times, you are going to have bad times, and you will even have times where you seem to be going backwards. The one trick successful people use is to keep moving, and don’t let anything stand in your way.
Follow your intuition. This one is a little more tricky, but with practice, you can learn to use your intuition as a guide to your dreams. Out of all three, this is the part fear will attack the most because it’s both very important to success, and it’s the most subtle of the methods. To illustrate the power of following your intuition, I will give you a recent example, and I’ll try to keep it brief. Cory Williams, from California, recently decided to move to Alaska, with his girlfriend. On one particular day the two decided to go on a drive, just to explore. They decided to drive down one road to see where it would take them. He found a sign that gave them a choice of right, or left, to two different lakes. He took the left road, found a semi-frozen lake, and thought it would be fun to skip a rock across, which produced a surprising sound. He recorded it, and his excitement, put it on YouTube, and the video went viral.
As the example shows, Cory’s intuition gave him several impulses, that he followed and they moved him further in his journey than being afraid of moving away from California could have ever moved him. As your intuition gives you the necessary impulses, your fear will make itself heard telling you things like your ideas are stupid, or that you aren’t good enough, or you can’t afford what you want. The best way to train yourself to follow your intuition is to use what fear tells you as a reason to do it. Don’t give fear the upper hand.
Fear is a part of all our lives. If you don’t want it to stop you from reaching your dreams, the key is to learn how to control it, instead of it controlling you.

An eventful week!!!

June 16, 2012

The previous week has held some good events.  You already saw the two videos of the events, but I didn’t show my favorite photographs taken during these events.  The first of these events was the Youtube meetup with Cory Williams, and Kathleen Elliot of Katersoneseven.

These are my favorites from that meetup.

Now, the other event was the old port festival, and these are my favorites from that.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Save the arts!!!

May 6, 2012

There is a growing problem with schools taking away the arts programs.  This is a subject that I am very passionate about, mostly because of my own arts, and my mom’s side of the family is all about the arts.

The arts are the very basis for learning to communicate, and communication is how we learn to relate to one another.

Maker Studios, on Youtube, has put together this ad to promote the website called adoptthearts.com, which is dedicated to saving the arts in schools.  If you believe in the arts, and want to help out, it’s a great site to visit.

Now here is the video they did.

I’m alive and Keekin!!!

April 22, 2012

Since I’m so short on time, I’ve only got time for a little message.

I just got an account on Keek.com  For those who don’t know what that is, it is Youtube meets Twitter.  You only have 30 seconds to make a video update.  It can be by webcam, I-phone, or Android.

If you want to check it out, you can see some of mine by going to this link.  http://www.keek.com/apb148

I look forward to seeing some of you there.

New video: At Little Cost

April 9, 2012

I decided to eliminate two excuses of why people don’t do exercise; money and time.  Any one can exercise with no money, and you can exercise in the time it takes to watch one tv show.

New video: The Not so secret formula.

This is the video I did yesterday regarding what I learned about fat loss recently.

I hope you enjoy it.
