Week 14: 2015 Love

blog-2015I forgive everyone.  I ask for forgiveness from all.  I carry no resentments forward into 2015.  I have learned from my past, but the past will not hinder me. I love all humanity.

As I begin 2015, the greatest lap around the sun of my entire life, I am reminded of the some of the words of Og Mandino in The Greatest Salesman in the World:

Thus a new and good habit is born, for when an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform and if it is a pleasure to perform it is man’s nature to perform it often. When I perform it often it becomes a habit and I become its slave and since it is a good habit this is my will.

I am doing the work in my business, talking to people.  Which will enable both them and me to have a “Life by Design” with a happy balance of work, play, workouts, and family.

I will laud mine enemies and they will become friends; I will encourage my friends and they will become brothers. Always will I dig for reasons to applaud; never will I scratch for excuses to gossip. When I am tempted to criticize I will bite my tongue; when I am moved to praise I will shout from the roofs.

One of the leaders in my company says, “When your team is doing nothing and complaining, make sure that you are not complaining about them… otherwise they are just ‘DUPLICATING’ you!”   Thus, I am trying not to complain, about anything, at all.

I will consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble.

How do I build a huge money-making team?   I set appointments daily by making calls and/or having conversations using skilled words.  I show the company business plan video during those appointments.  Then, I just collect a decision (Customer or Associate, their choice).   It is just those three things.  It is simple.  Just keep swinging, with persistence.

I am the architect of my future self and future reality, and that future (read here and watch the recording here) is pulling me forward into action.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

Week 13: NARC and The Law of Growth

ThomasBrooks-HeadshotW. Clement Stone taught that, “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”  Everyone wants to grow their business, but sometimes they neglect the main traction point of the business. For example, in networking marketing, we need to talk to people.  That is the traction point.   And we want to do this in a way that leaves the people asking us for more information as opposed to us pushing it on them.   If we don’t talk to people and we keep our business a secret, we won’t be able to help those people make money for themselves, and we won’t grow our money-making teams.

In our Master Key Mastermind Alliance (MKMMA) class, Mark J. talks about that fact that it is really as simple as asking ourselves…..what am I going to do today to advance my business at the traction point?

Law of Growth:  Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

I just found out through our MKMMA class about a breakthrough concept called Neurological Associative Reactive Conditioning (NARC).  Animals can’t do it, but humans can.  We can associate positive or negative feeling to anything.  It is our choice.  Think of food as one example where we can apply NARC.   Think of sex as another example where we can apply NARC.

Law of Dual Thought:   Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

We can use this to our advantage to talk to people on a daily basis.   I choose to be happy and excited about talking to people.   I have the privilege of making what I now call “$1 Million Presentations” every day.   After all, with my help and my expert mentoring, the next great person I talk to could be a super star leader in my business.  He or she could enable geometric growth for life for themselves, and for me also.  I choose to think of my phone as an ATM Machine for my business.  It is all about the idea that I individually choose to attach to the action.

Only humans can do something like this:  Attach pain to NOT talking to people, and leaving our dreams dormant if we choose that path.  Attach pleasure to making calls and accelerating the life we have imagined.

Happy Holidays!  Here is a gift from Dicky Fox, from his cameos in the popular 1996 Jerrry Maguire movie starring Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding, Jr.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

Week 12: Seven Laws of the Mind

blog-Mind PowerLaw of Substitution:  We cannot think about two things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind ~ try to think about any positive thing or any fond memory.

My comment:  Whenever I get a negative thought or have negative self-talk, I switch to saying this statement which gets me in a positive mindset and refocused on my business, “I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.”

Law of Relaxation:  Mental effort defeats itself ~ exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind, is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence.

My comment:  Doing my meditative “sit” for 15 minutes a day.  Controlling my thoughts.   Progress is happening for me.

Law of Practice:   Practice makes perfect. The 5Ps – Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance.

My comment:  We all know the importance of practice for anything that really matters.   Often, we just don’t do it because we have this ‘story’ that we are too busy.  Here’s a mantra for 2015:  “Do it now!”

Law of Forgiveness:  To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.

My comment:  Just let it go.   Who are you carrying that baggage for, anyway?   Please don’t carry any resentment or baggage into 2015.   Leave the past in the past if you want to create a new future.

Law of Dual Thought:   Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

My comment:  For example, if you got a disappointing raise this year with your end-of-year performance review, you can simply use that as a reminder that your long-term priority is to build your own independent business.  After all, you may have already decided that by 2016 your passive monthly income from your own business will enable you to leave your day job, anyway.

Law of Subconscious:  As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand ~ accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

My comment:  I have been listening to the audiobook of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill a few times over the last year.  You should do the same.  We learned earlier in this Master Key course… “The subconscious can and will solve any problem for us if we know how to direct it. The subconscious processes are always at work; the only question is, are we to be simply passive recipients of this activity, or are we to consciously direct the work?”

Law of Growth:  Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

My comment:  I am thinking about my business.  I am taking action in terms of my business this month.  And guess what… I am having an amazing week in my business.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

Week 11: Law of Attraction

blog-law of attractionRemember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.

The paragraph above is an excerpt from our reading this week for our Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) class.   I have rediscovered that the law of attraction is always working, whether I am cognizant of it or not in any particular moment.  I have choice to make about my friends, how I spend my time, and my mindset including my way of being.  As one of the leaders in my company frequently states:  We can be, do and have more!

We frequently hear it said, “A very distressing situation came into my life, which could not have been the result of my thought, as I certainly never entertained any thought which could have such a result.” We fail to remember that like attracts like in the mental world, and that the thought which we entertain brings to us certain friendships, companionships of a particular kind, and these in turn bring about conditions and environment, which in turn are responsible for the conditions of which we complain.

I just spent five days in Aruba with other Top Producers in my network marketing company.  It was a free trip for myself and my wife, and the amazing vacation just happened to coincide with the date of my birthday.  Being around over 150 positive people, reminds me that our friendships and Master Mind Alliances do bring about conditions and environment that can help us create an amazing new reality that supports our Definite Major Purpose statement.

The truth must be told to each generation and to every people in new and different terms, so that when the Great Teacher said — “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive” or, when Paul said — “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” or, when modern science says — “The law of attraction is the law by which thought correlates with its object”, each statement when subjected to analysis, is found to contain exactly the same truth. The only difference being in the form of presentation.

Like attracts like in the mental world.  Our faith is manifest through the law of attraction.  One of the best-selling books of all-time is Think and Grow Rich.   Notice that the first word of the title is THINK.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

Week 10: Persistence

Ignite-The-Greatest-Salesman-in-the-WorldThe prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.

The words above are from Scroll III in Mandino’s book The Greatest Salesman in the World.  This passage really resonates with me as I grow my network marketing team, especially as our company expands nationally in January 2015.  I know that belief does not come from success.  Success actually comes from belief.  The correct order is BE, then DO, then HAVE.  Because of my belief, I am persistent.

Always will I take another step.  If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.

I used to be a good distance runner.  When it came time for speed work, my track coach used to say near the end of practice, “Anyone can run one more 200!”

Henceforth, I will consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today. I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger… I will persist until I succeed.

To achieve my Definite Major Purpose, it takes persistence.  I am creating a “Life by Design”, with a happy balance of work, play, workouts, and family.  I am proud to help people earn Free Energy and Free Mobile Phone Services, and also to help people make life-changing money.  I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.  I cheerfully share my opportunity and create productive networkers by teaching them exactly what to say and do to be successful.  I continue to do this, regardless of how long it takes or how many times I am told, “No Thanks.”  I am persistent.

So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.  I will persist. I will win.

In summary, to have persistence, you will need:  (1) A definite major purpose (DMP) backed by a burning desire, (2) A written plan of action (WPOA) expressed in continuous action, (3) A positive mental attitude (PMA), with your mind closed to all negative thought, and (4) a Master Mind Alliance, such as the course I am in with my group, or it can be communication with an individual with whom you are in total harmony.

From James Collins:

Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
