Poor Warm Market Investments

Network marketing rookies often make poor decisions when it comes to who they invest their time and money in during the beginning phases of building their business. It has been said that a sensitive and kindhearted person person cannot survive in this line of business for long. I believe that in many respects that is true, but it’s not all bad though. We will get to that in a later entry.

Kindhearted people are often attributed to have a blue or sometimes yellow personality type, (depending of the chart you are using). A person with this personality type encompasses qualities such as sensitivity, being a people person, and being a caring team builder. In most lines of business you cannot successfully build  your business when you have too many qualities that fall under this category.

You know of you bestow these qualities, and this article is for you. You are going to have the desperation to partner with as many people as possible as quickly as possible when you first enter this line of business. It does sound great and in many way it is great to partner with numerous people in a short period of time, but what are you sacrificing in order to make this happen.

Sacrifice is necessary for success in network marketing but it has to be the right kind of sacrifice and done at the right time. Many network marketing rookies allow their desperation to make them spend days and weeks and sometimes months begging friends and family to partner with them in their business. When one of these friends or family members is in the brink of partnering, the rep will usually do one thing or another; either front the person hundreds of dollars to bring them in at a high leadership level, or they will allow them in at the lowest level. After the person is in the business the rep will drain him/herself spending all of their time trying to ensure that this newly recruited person sees some sort of success so they won’t quit the business.

Well the person had no vested interest in being a partner and still has no desire or financial drive to make them do what’s necessary to succeed. They didn’t invest much of any money into this business so if they don’t see some big money coming their way soon they are bound to quit and tell everyone else that it doesn’t work. You sacrificed hundreds dollars in your own money and/or countless days and hours into this person that has quit the business and is telling everyone else not to partner with you either.

Friends and family can be great assets to your business if you bring them aboard the proper way, but using desperation will not work in your favor. It was once said by a wise man by the name of Jarrod Wilkins, “Your friends and family won’t start supporting you until strangers start celebrating you.”

Get Uncomfortable

People go day in and day out saying what they want their life to be or what they want to have in life. They say these things yet continue to receive the same results as before. 

  
Are they just not wanting it bad enough? Maybe that’s true, but the vast majority of people are simply too comfortable with being comfortable, and you CANNOT grow from a state of comfort.

In order to grow, you MUST put yourself in a perpetual state of discomfort. 

Think on that for a minute, then go get to work!

You Become What You Think About

What is it that you think about the most?  Have you ever stopped to think about that; to think about what you think about? Most people don’t think about things like that, and that’s exactly why they will never reach the level of success that they truly aim to reach.

You must consciously feed your brain with positive, enriching, and intellectually stimulating on a regular basis messages in order to really get the full experience of joy, pleasure and success out of life. 
I ask you to examine what it is that you let into your mind during the course of the next 21 days. Conciously keep negative thoughts out while pumping positive thoughts in. Consciously tune negative media out while tuning in to a great book that will stimulate a success mentality. Consciously seek the good in every situation no matter how bad it may appear at face value.  

This task will not be easy for most people because most people allow the negativity in our society to formulate their attitude and way of thinking, and then they become a direct reflection of the negativity that they have let into their mind. Don’t become what the world wants to conform you into, become greater! Be the other statistic; be the 3%. 

21 days of repetition can transform this task into a way of life for you. It happened for me, and it can happen for you. Now get out there and make the world your playground.

Some Types of People

There is an infinite number of different types of people in this world. We sometimes have to live with, work with, and/or go to school with people who are nowhere near similar to us. They have different outlook on life, they have a discouraging point of view about their abilities, they blame everyone else for their problems, they want life to be easier, they want less responsibility, they think less of you, they see no light at the end of the tunnel, and they bring down everyone around them….except YOU!

Never allow those around you to steal your dream. You know what you have within, you know life is a wonderful journey and not a misery, you know that your abilities can and will take you where you want to go, you take responsibility of your problems, you enjoy the challenges of life, you enjoy shouldering more responsibility than is assigned to you, you believe in those around you, you see the light at the end of the tunnel and you uplift everyone in your vicinity when it is within your ability.

What will mean the most and last the longest after you are gone is the affect you have made on the lives of others. How will YOU remembered?

Much love everyone.
If you are unhappy, unsuccessful, stressed out etc…please reach out to me.

Be Liberated from Your Fears

Image credit: snapshotsportswestsideguy22.blogspot.com

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not or darkness that lost frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world, there is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were all meanty to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us it’s in everyone. And as we let our on light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Knowledge is NOT Power

The vast majority of our school systems and educational facilities teach on the notion that knowledge is power. They supply our youth with what they feel is the best methodology of educating them to be prepared to go out and take on the world.

The teachers become the liking of a robotic machine monotonously lecturing the same historic information that has been lectured on for decades with the idea that they are preparing these students to go out and succeed in life. While most of them have all the best intentions in mind this simply isn’t enough.

The acquisition of knowledge is indeed highly recommended yet simply the acquisition of this knowledge alone does no good if you don’t know how to apply this knowledge to the real world. Young men and women alike around the country are completing high school today with no idea on how to independently survive, let alone thrive in the society that is unleashed on them upon graduation. The rapid advances in technology have developed the true reality to be nowhere near the what the typical high school education has prepared these young people to take on.

These high school graduates have an abundance of knowledge that has been drilled into their heads for the past four years, yet there was no class that taught them how to pull that knowledge from within and apply it to their respective career pursuits. There was no adviser or counselor there to actually guide these students in the proper direction which would give them the highest odds to thrive in life.

That being said, Knowledge is NOT Power, it is the potential of power. Upon graduation from any institute, regardless of the level of education you have acquired, it is a necessity to continue to self-educate. Never stop studying and polishing your craft. Never stop topping your best and NEVER let anyone else tell you what you can or can not do. Do all of this and you will attain the tools necessary to bring full power to your knowledge.

 

You deserve to live a life of purpose!

In our world’s and nation’s current economic state there are numerous individuals dissatisfied with their current form of employment. See where you fall among all participants who voted.

Create Opportunity – Minimize Waithood

In today’s school system our youth are taught to go to school, make good grades, then graduate and get a good job. This is how you make something of yourself and achieve success in life. The vast majority of our graduating youth complete their studies with this mentality. For some of them, this plays out very well; within a month or so of graduation they land a decent job with a decent salary and room for growth. They stay with this employer for a few years until they either become complacent and eventually fired, or they outgrow the company and move on to another company which they see as a better choice.

In this article we aren’t going to talk about that group of people. I want to talk about those who follow that path of education yet when they finish they do not find employment. They apply and apply to job after job but never receive that callback for an interview. Occasionally they will get through to receive a phone interview yet they never hear back after that phone interview.  These youth end up in a semblance of limbo where they are looking to take advantage of the first opportunity that comes along. These youth become caught up in what has been coined as ‘waithood‘.

If we look back through the generations at the greatest figures throughout history who have come to shape the world as we know it you will see one thing in common. The vast majority of them were entrepreneurs who didn’t wait for someone to give them a job. The big issue with this is the fact that our current school system does not teach entrepreneurship. This system does not prepare our youth to go out and own their own financial future. This system teaches our youth to be dependent upon a corporation to decide if these they are qualified to work for their company or not. Traditional work is simply not designed for all people, or better yet, the minds of some of our youth are to complex to be squeezed into the conformity of a traditional form of employment. We need more training to show young people how to be entrepreneurs and take control of their financial future.

The human mind is one of the most underused tools and it is at our immediate disposal. We must train our youth to be innovative and use their minds in ways that powerful thinkers of the past did. Modern day entrepreneurs serve as a catalyst for those around them to also become entrepreneurs and or at the least, to have job opportunities. If we indeed promote entrepreneurship we can empower young people to be creators of the very economic opportunities they’re so desperately seeking.

Procrastination

Whether you’re putting off that research paper until the last minute, or leaving the biggest job task for last, procrastination has gotten a

grasp of you. Any individual that has attained any level of success in their life will tell you that you had better jump off of that boat as soon as possible.

With the constant bombardment of distractions such as new television series, sporting events and social engagements it has become easier and easier to put off the important things for later. What you may not take into consideration is the fact that you will never really experience the entirety of your success until you break the habit of procrastination. Oftentimes we have all good intentions when we procrastinate; we “have it all planned out”, but more times than not it goes nowhere near what was planned, then we beat ourselves up in frustration as to why we didn’t get started earlier.

As hard as it may be, if you actually take the initiative to get up and take action immediately on your task at hand you will very soon thereafter realize how beneficial it was and you will thank yourself for being disciplined enough to do so.

So what are some ways to fight procrastination?

  • As some associates of mine once taught me; plan your work and work your plan.
    • What you want to do is at the beginning of each week, (preferably Sunday evening), sit down with your calendar and plan out the next 7 days. Be honest with yourself by making the week’s tasks doable, but also make them challenging because you want to be continuously growing.
  • Another tip is to tackle the most demanding tasks first. When you successfully complete a demanding task early in the week or early in the day it sets you up for a week of success. You have knocked out the biggest beast and everything else should fall together without much difficulty.
  • Make to-do-lists. When you make a to-do-list it gives you a guide for your day. As you go through your day and complete your tasks you will see your list growing smaller which gives a sense of satisfaction which in turn excites you push harder to ensure that you demolish the entire list.
  • Stop talking and start acting. So many people like to sound as if they are busy or have a lot on their plate, but most of the time they are simply stating what they WANT to do as opposed to what we are actually doing. It’s feels good to boast about what you are doing, until someone calls you out on your bull. If you want to step into success you MUST take NIKE’s advice and “Just Do It!”
  • Disconnect your cable TV! Numerous individuals waste away hours and hours watching their favorite television shows every week when they could be working towards making their dreams become a reality. This can be very difficult when you have a significant other or you are married. Your partner will most likely want to spend leisure time with you by lounging around in front of your big screen TV, but it’s up to you to let them know where your priorities lie.

There are obviously numerous ways to fight procrastination that I will touch on in another article. Until then, go set some goals, and DEMOLISH them!
