Why You Are Already A Success?

We each have our own definition of what success is or is not. Yet, mostly all of us think success is related to money, a big house, car, clothes…etc. Over time, I’ve come to realize that success is “whatever the hell” I want to it be. Listen, if I let my wins/failures define me as successful or not, then I would be surely depressed. Instead, I’ve chosen to learn from them, make adjustments, and keep it moving.  So let’s take a new look at success…a look that I believe that will empower instead of tearing folks down because they don’t make 100k, 1 million, 1 billion per year.

Watch this video – You Are A Success.

 

Earl Nightingale said, “Success is the pursuit of a worthy idea.” When we start to look at success as it relates to the “journey,” which we must all take to reach our goals, then we start see, take ownership of the wins/loses/setbacks along the way. We have to take ownership of who we become as we move towards our goals. We start to make course changes and adjustments a lot easier. We then realize that the obtainment of that goal is just is the just manifestation of all of our hard work along the way. The achievement of the goal is just feedback of our successful journey.  From this point of view, we then focus on the daily routines, commitment, actions that we all must take. This is where we can draw strength, have faith, hope, and courage…for we all know deep down inside that we have to go for it.

Know if you are on the path towards the accomplishment of your goals, doing the daily activities it takes to reach that/those goal(s), then you are successful. It’s just a matter of time when you will see the results of your labor of love.

Take care!

Everyone should know that Jack Canfield wrote “Chicken Soup For the Soul”  which is another amazing inspirational book. That book put Jack on the global stage. It had a positive impact on thousands of people’s lives.  He was featured in the film, “The Secret.”  Jack is very practical and realistic type of person. This book will give you practical tools to reach any goal you have. It has plenty of actionable items for you to do. It’s no fluff, mess, and thrills.

51KbpmnNmAL._SX352_BO1,204,203,200_2. The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy 

A great read, and simple and easy to follow. Darren demonstrates that our everyday decisions to either do something to take towards our goals or away from our goals, has an impact on your ability to achieve or not achieve that goal.  If you feel like you are stuck on your course to the attainment of your goal, then stop what you are doing and read this book. You will see just how subtle the little things you don’t do really add up.  If ever wanted proof of the power of a mosquito sting in your life, then read this book.  Then read it again. Make sure go through the exercises at the end of each chapter. You will be amazed at what you discover and how to win. 

 

 

think and grow rich3.  Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill 

Look if you are serious about starting that dream job as a real-estate agent, insurance agent, bowling coach (yes, I am a league bowler) triathlon coach, real-estate investor, or whatever legal business/goal/venture you have, then you must read this book. There’s just no if and buts about it. The book was written like more than 70 years ago, and the secrets to wealth/abundance creation hasn’t change.  I’ve read this book several times and still get insights that are extremely valuable.  This book will literally will help you to develop a wealth consciousness. In addition, it will also teach you simple tools you can use everyday to keep your mind focused on the abundance that you seek, that’s around you, and within you. If you ask any successful businessperson if they read this book, they will say yes.  So get it and read it! 

 

 

4. The Compound Effect by Jeff Olson41hC5Pli3SL._SL160_

The small decisions that you and I make can either make us or break us. It may not happen right there on the spot, in most cases, however over time those little decisions add up. Either they can add up to a big win for us, or big loses.  This book isn’t just another feel good and be happy book. This book looks at every little thing we do or don’t do, and how it compounds to either spin us out of control or propels us to the next level. Jeff will point out stuff that you and I just probably wouldn’t even think about.  This book is good and so worth being on my list that I’ve written about it twice.  I promise you will not look at your decisions the same, because you will realize just how powerful they are. 

 

 

51Zm0PIE36L._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_5.  The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss

It’s a best seller.  Not to mention he lives in my area. This book talks about the life that we all want. We all want the ability to make our annual income in a month, weeks, or days. Tim took his 40k a year position and turned it into an 40k per month business in only 4 hours per week. I know!!! He will show you how to create your ideal life with proven methods.  Now I must confess, I just ordered the book because my mentor, David Wood suggested it during an event. Therefore, I got it. From what I’ve schemed so far…I wish I had read and applied its principles in 2007 when it first came out. It’s a must read if you are in any business venture! 

 

I can go on and on with book recommendations. Reading is how I changed my life and has helped me to reach some major wins in my life. I can’t stress it enough. The only way you will change into the person you must become in order to have your definition of success, you must change your thinking/attitudes/and beliefs. 

[fancy_box id=1]”Our thinking creates problems that the same type of thinking will not solve.” Albert Einstein [/fancy_box]

Now get these books. Read them, apply their wisdom, and take action(s)! You will amaze yourself with your accomplishments.

Revealed: How A Video Challenge Boosted My Views on Facebook

It’s like almost 4 in the morning.  Thirty of us have taken on a challenge by our mentor David Wood to shoot a video, get the most view, likes, comments, and shares all in an effort to win a contest to be apart of his leadership mastermind event in Costa Rica this October 2016. Now, I will confess that I was like “huh?” Like why not just charge me to attend or something like that. Well now that I have taken on this challenge to compete for a spot at the table, I’ve come to realize a few things.

1. It’s was a lesson to get us out of our comfort zones. That’s right. Most people are so afraid of not doing things right, saying the wrong thing, etc. That fear holds most people back. This challenge was to inspire us to make action and overcome that fear. I will confess I was nervous and like “WTH?”  If I want to be able to help people, I’ve got to conquer my own fears.  <—Click the link to see the video.

2. It was a lesson to show us that we can influence people to take action, get them engaged, and earn their support. That’s the basic definition of leadership. It’s something we all have.  Even if I got 2 views on a video, I still had engagement and support from those viewers. They viewed the post!!!! That’s the biggest  battle with any advertising/internet marketing/etc. Getting people to actually look at your content, and hold their attention. I did that!!!!

FACEBOOK STATS

3. It got us over our fears of making fools of ourselves on camera. Now, I will confess I don’t like video blogging. Yet, it has been proven time and time again it’s the most effective and produces the highest engagement with audiences.  So, I did it!!! I made my video on   Facebook Live .  <— click this link to see the video. I’ve only used that Facebook feature two times. Today was the second time.  I was so nervous!!!!

4. This challenge also proves that people are more likely to engage with you with a video because it shows your personality… basically you.  It’s raw and live. More importantly…it uses the majority of people senses: see and hear. Where as a blog post is only seeing, while a PodCast is only hearing.  The more sense that are engaged, the more people are engaged.

Thanks to what I have learned this weekend on internet marketing and taking on this challenge, I have generated several hundred views in minutes.  Thus proving his point of the power of videos in internet marketing. It’s like woah!

Take a look at the video, like it, comment, and share it. Then go do your own video and put it out there. Let people see you, connect with you, hear your voice, and know that you are real. You’ve got value to add to their world that can make a huge difference for them. That’s what it is all about, we each help each other to be better!!

I want to thank you for supporting me in this challenge by viewing, liking, commenting, and sharing the video. Please let me know that you have, so that I can thank you!!! This challenge is major proof – no one wins without the support of others.

 

Thank you!

How To Attract Leads To Your Business

Whatever business you are in you’ve got to have people to sell to. Let’s be frank, whatever your belief(s) is/are about money, success, wealth you still need people to sell to or not sell to regardless. How are you going to do that. We all know that old rhyme, “if you build it, then they will come” doesn’t work. Look at all the closed shops in your area.  We also know that “word of mouth” gets you so far.

Just how do you get leads, find folks who want your product/services/maybe even join your business if you are in network marketing?  It’s marketing! Yes, marketing. All major companies has some form of a marketing budget to reach their target market.  We must do the same.  We can’t keep asking our friends and family, and then ask them if they know 5 people to refer to us.

I can here you now going, “Earl, I don’t know nothing about marketing.” You can probably guess what I am going to say – “Learn it.” You can learn how to market your business. As a matter, the fact you are reading this blog is even more proof of that, because I learned how to market myself. I am still learning new things – like video blogging! It’s getting better.  As you learn the skills to market on line and apply what you learn, you will start to get results. From those results you can make course corrections and adjusts. As you get leads and success, your vibration starts to raise. Before you know it – you will have more leads than you can shake a stick at. These are people who’ve agreed to hear what you have to offer.  Now how would that make you feel?

Finally, you’ve also got to do this. Now really get this. However you decide to market, just remember that people are freaking awesome and they got a lot on their plate. So if you are in network marketing, get to know them and connect with them before you decide to say “look at my dvd.”  If you are in banking like me, connect with them.  When you take your internet marketing training, hopefully you will choose a program that also focuses on personal development as well.  So important, as we all have our habits and weird things about us, that attracts to us things we don’t want.

Let’s wrap this up – I have a 90 mile bike ride tomorrow morning. Now, if you are going to learn how to market, then learn how to market on line.  Take an internet marketing course from people like EmpowerNetwork.  Also, if you decide you want to, then you we can talk.  There are others as well. Find one – try it and learn. Success is a learned. You can’t demand from the Universe a life of freedom, if you aren’t willing to invest in yourself and get the skills you need to do your part, to make your dreams come true.  That smart phone in your hand is an ally. Take the time to learn how to market online. You will be so glad you did – when you have fresh new leads to talk to about your products and services, instead of your Grandparent’s friends for the 5th time.

Remember – to comment blow. Let me know your thoughts on this post. Please share the post if you got anything of value – it’s caring when you share.  And feel free to connect with me on social media.

 

All the best!

It’s why we are here on this planet.  It doesn’t matter what your position is at your job, business, etc.

When you connect with people from the heart you can move mountains in people’s lives.

This is why we all must invest in ourselves.

We must learn new skills, achieve our goals, and remember the victories we’ve gained. You are worth something.

You are worth more than your weight in gold/silver/brass/diamonds.

The Power Of Gratitude | The Law Of Attraction | The Force of Gratitude

I am just going to put this out there! If you can read this blog, if you can see this blog, if you access this blog online either via your smart phone/tablet/laptop/desktop, then no matter what you are going through you have something to lift your head, hands, and hearts up and say “Thank you!” 

I just spent an amazing weekend in Nashville at my very first internet marketing/personal development weekend.  I’ve never been to an industry based conference before. I was so blessed by the people, the content, the experience that I didn’t want to leave them.  There’s something magical that happens when you attend whatever business, industry, company, etc conference. I met people like [fb_embed_post href=”https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153484208601606&set=a.10153479485746606.1073741829.635306605&type=3&theater/” width=”350″/].

I met several million dollar home based business owners, 6 figures earners, and the creator of the organization[fb_embed_post href=”https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153481877176606&set=a.10153479485746606.1073741829.635306605&type=3&theater/” width=”350″/]

This event was so moving for me, that I called my mom and told her “Thank you for all that you and dad has done for me.”

There’s one thing that I know for sure. You and I must always give thanks for the victories, for the wins, the ups, and the lessons we learn when we come down. There’s power in gratitude. It raises my vibration when I think of the goodness and what my God has done for me. There’s power there that allows me to see a new way around an obstacle. There’s power in gratitude that moves mountains, the causes clients to move forward and do business with you. The power of gratitude will propel you towards your goals and victories faster than any actions you take with a negative and crappy attitude.

While I was in Nashville last week. I had to take time out and say “thank you!” I had to recognize the forces at work in my life, that are helping me to reach new heights in my sales career, in my group fitness teaching, in my fundraising for AIDS LIFECYCLE...the list goes on. I just had a person donate a huge some of money to the 545 mile bike ride… that I was so not expecting at all. How is all that possible because I look for things to say “Thank you!”

I’m going to put the video link here in this blog post. Watch it. Then go and find 3 things you are grateful for. Post them in the comments below. It doesn’t matter if you had 5 bucks to buy food, be grateful. If you barely had enough money to pay rent, celebrate! If you have the ability to read, then give thanks with a grateful heart. If you called and talked to your mom, then say “Thank you!” You and I have so much good and wonderful things that happen to us everyday that we take for granted. This time – I challenge you to take a few minutes – share it here and on social media – what you are grateful for. Do it often…and watch your life change and just get sweeter!

Here’s the video I made!

Continue to be blessed!!!

Tools To Help You To Be Who You Must Become To Win

The Slight Edge

First let me just say this – buy this book! If you ever think, feel like, wonder, doubt, or can’t seem to figure out why crap just keeps happening to you… despite the fact you’ve done all you can to keep it 100. Then this book is for you!

Listen, I’ve struggled with success and failures. In the real-estate bubble I had 3 homes and lost them. In the sales bubble, I would hit high numbers – then go back down. It wasn’t until I started to learn to internet marketing with Empower Network, that I discovered this book and why I was not being consistent in my actions. This book is knocking the gray lenses on my eyes right off. This book has shown me that it is the little things that we do or don’t do, that makes all the difference.  Success is just a bunch small little boring things that must be done. This book reminded me… that winning is in the completion of the small things. The stuff no one cares about, because it just seems so unimportant. For example in business to business sales, you must make sales calls to schedule appointments. No sale calls no appointments. No quota achievement, no commissions.  League bowler…rush the shot -pull the bowling ball to the left or right. In our rush rush society everyone wants the baby – not the labor/pregnancy. You will learn that time is really on your side. Just in chapter 5 alone, you will clearly see that time is going to pass regardless of your choices – the question is will you let time help you or let time pass you by.  One more cool thing about this book. At the end of each chapter they actually share live testimonials from people all around the world. People who have different goals and desires, and how they have put the book to good use to reach them. You and I can do the same.

One final thought. Just last week I was struggling with making sales calls. I didn’t want to call those cold leads.  However, after reading this book I was aware of the power of my choices. Yes, I could have not made those calls. And life would have continued. Yet, not making those calls would have resulted in no activity. No possibility for a closed deal, meeting with a potential client, or maybe an introduction to someone they know.  Thus I made those calls…and now I can honestly say I took the actions. Isn’t that what a 200% sales quota achiever would have done? He/she would have made those calls…and even if they didn’t reach anyone on the phone. While doing those calls, I got inspired to mail those leads some marketing materials… let’s see how it goes. When you know the power of your decisions and how they impact your goals, you will start to make better decisions consistent with who you want to be.  Get the book!

The Compound Effect

 Yes, I am going to say BUY THE BOOK!!!!!  So when I bought “The Slight Edge” it was recommended that I get this book by Darren Hardy! This guy is a freaking genius.  Look, I just wrote an article on the power of Be/Do/Have. If you focus on “be” then you will “do” and you will “have.” This book a tool to get you to “be” the person you must “be” so that you can “do” what must be done, so that you can “have” what you want. It’s really that simple.

If you look on page 72, you will see that he address the need to ‘be’come the person that is required to hit your new goal. You can’t be a professional bowler, as an amateur. You can’t lose and keep out 20 pounds without being a healthy person. I can’t be 200% quota achiever, as 140% quota person. It just doesn’t work – corn will never grow in sweet potatoes.

Another cool aspect of this book, each chapter has action steps for you and I to really drive home the message of the book. In the first chapter you will be asked to write out your excuses that you cling to not be a group fitness instructor, internet marketer, 200% of quota achiever in your sales job, whatever. Write out a list of small things you can stop doing that might be compounding your results in the wrong direction. Then write a list of steps you can take, no matter how small, to reach your destination. Finally write out a list of your successes. We all have them…marriage, a relationship that lasted more than a weekend. A cool thing with our parents, family, friends. Or just the fact you can sell snow to an Eskimo. We all have a lot more going for us than we acknowledge.  It’s eye opening to see that if I continue to build upon my wins, things just keeps getting better.   

Finally, this book is packed with a resource guide that’s designed to help you maximize your compounding experience. I don’t want to give it all away, go get the book, read it, and apply it – and win!!!

Listen these tools will work for any goal you have. They will work in any industry, field, lifestyle, etc. See a screw diver is only concerned with being a screw diver and being used correctly as intended. You want to use these tools to help you to become the person you need to be, so that you can start to do, do more of, become consistent in doing what’s required, for you to have what you want. That’s the only real way to get your vibrations in alignment with what you want. Your vibrations is reflected in your being and doing. If you aren’t getting the results you want, then only you can change it. The faster you realize that the success you want is waiting on you to line up, the faster you can have it. Use these tools to help you get there faster.  

Finally, I only discovered these books recently from the internet marketing program I am taking. I was listening to an inner circle audio training and they mentioned these books. So I bought them and read them. The program requires you invest in your personal development by reading 30 minutes a day and listing to an audio book. I’ve been doing it for awhile and things are just popping. The things I am learning, the person I am becoming, the way I respond to things is just different. One of my friends told me that she’s noticed a change just the other day.  So yeah, it’s worth it, because I’m worth it!!!! 

You’ve got to invest in yourself  to be a better husband, father, wife, mother, student, employee, bowling buddy, cyclist, uncle, employee, marketer…it doesn’t matter. Nothing grows on this planet without TLC! Your mind, life, and future are no different.  You must “be” who you must become to win. Start now.  

 Take care!

A Simple Way To Raise Your Vibration

How often do you tell yourself, “If only I had the money, I would start that business?” How often do you tell yourself, “If I just lose 10 pounds, I will be healthier?” How often do you say to yourself, “If I was rich, then I can just pay off these bills and be debt free?”  Here’s the tea. We all say it, have said it, or said something similar to those questions. We feel stuck because we think we must “have” this or “have” that in order to be and do what we want.  When we finally get that “have” nothing really changes…and we are right back where we started if not worse off.  In this blog post, let’s explore this notion of “have” and see if we can’t find a better way and raise our vibrations to what we want.photo-1458419948946-19fb2cc296af

Let’s ask ourselves those questions again. Now notice how you feel when you ask yourself that/those question(s)? Did you feel the doubt and fear? Did you hear that little voice say, “Child please… You really?”  Of course we all do. Even when I tell myself, if I just close this deal then I will hit this.  The only difference is through personal development and investing in my education, I’ve come to learn how to deal with this and I’ve made some real strides in my world.

Now let’s ask this age old question – when did you get your driver’s license? When did you graduate from high school? How old were you?  Did you notice something… those were at all at particular ages. You can remember the age you were at the time. You can somewhat recall those moments in vivid details. Here’s why – it’s because who you were “be”ing” at the time.

We have it all backwards in thinking if we have, then we will do, and then be. When reality all of our lives it has been be. do, then have!  Let’s go back to your driver’s license. How old did you have to “be” to get a permit/license?  In the US, it’s 15-16 years old. Once you hit that number you were eligible to get a permit. Then you had to take a test or tests…to have the license/permit.

Now I can hear some of you saying, well of course. That’s the law.  Okay – how about graduating from high school, college, graduate/doctoral school.  In order to get even a degree, you had to “be” enrolled as a student.  Then you had to “do” the required curriculum as outlined by the school/state etc and pass. Once you did all that, then you can “have” your degree.

See, I don’t think you are getting this. Let’s look at the job you currently have. I know you hate it, don’t like it, or which for something better. In order for you to get that job, you had to “be” a candidate. To “be” a candidate you had to “do” the application/resume submission either on line or in person. Then you had to “do” an interview or interview.  Then if you passed the interview/interviews, then you were offered the position and brought on board. Even after all that, still “be” with the organization you have to “do” what’s expected or better, in order to still “have” the graduation picposition.

Listen, I hope you are starting to get this. When I got it after listening to an InnerCircle Audio with my current program that’s teaching me how to be an internet mogul. I was like man… oh man! This is life right here. See I got that if I want to be a 200% of quota producer I had to “be” that person. I then had to do what that person would do, in order to have the 200% quota.

When we look out over the land, everyone is “being” who they are. We can tell by their actions, which is consistent with their being and their results. It never fails. Why do you think you feel a twinge of guilt or feel like crap when you focus on anything contrary to what you really want to be? Those inspired actions you ignore. Those pushes you to take this internet marketing course, read that book, call that person, or just hit the gym (when you don’t feel like it) are the Universe’s attempts to help you get on track to doing what needs to be done that’s in alignment with who you said you wanted to be.

When we just be who we want to be, then we will do / take the actions consistent with that person, then we will have what that person has.  Let’s say it like this. If you want to be a person who makes 100k, 1 million, 10 million,  then you must take actions, learn the stuff, do the stuff  that a person who is a 100k, 1 million, 10 million earner does, then you can have those results!  Till you be that person, you will never do, then you will never have.

If I want to be 17 mph average cyclist, then I must do the work, then I can have that result. If I want to be a successful 7 figure internet marketer, then I must do the stuff that’s required, then I can have that result.  We can look through out history at those who tried to get the results/or temporarily had the results without “being” the person who did what it took to get those results.  We call them one hit wonders, we make insulting television shows about them, they are the lottery winners who are broke 5 years later. They are family members or friends  who blames everyone but themselves for their problem(s)photo-1429051781835-9f2c0a9df6e4It doesn’t matter if you want to be a musician, artist, actor, or bum on the street. All that is required is for you to be that person, then do what that person does, then you can have the results of that person.  So grab a pen and paper. Write down what is the best you possible. How would you be? Would you take on new risk? Would you lead a team of 100’s/1000’s/10,000’s of people. Write it down!!! Yes, the best you possible. How much money do you make as the best you possible. Write a specific amount. Is it 5k, 10k, 30k, 100k, 3k per month? What does the best of you “do” to make that kind of money to have the things that the best of you want?  What kind of results does the “best” of you have? How much in savings? What does your house look like? What kind of car does the best you drive?  How much does the best you invest in your personal development? Our imagination is powerful and fuel for  the soul…so use and create the person you want to be. Then do what that person does, so that you can have the results you want. We are so worth it, because we are.

Here’s to the best of “us.”

Bob Proctor, Oprah, and Celebrities Share Their Experiences With The Law Of Attraction

Can you explain how the law of attraction works, beyond “likes attracts like?” How have you mastered the law of attraction to get the results you want? Bob Proctor, Oprah, and several celebrities talk about their experiences with Law of Attraction, and how they’ve mastered the law to get their results. 
  1. Bob Proctor – The Law of Attraction Explained

    Go back and watch this video again. I’ve discovered why I am still single, despite the fact I keep saying “I want to get married and settle down.” I’ve also discovered why I’m learning internet marketing, because I changed my paradigm about what’s possible and what I can create. Now I see why it’s important for me to stay on pace and on track. See, I was raised by a single mom of 3 kids. We grew up on the north side of the city of St. Louis, MO in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath house, that was burglarized 7 times. Yeah, according the environment in which I was raised, I should not have a Master’s Degree/College Degree/and a career in banking. Yet, after watching this video I know why I am where I am. And for that, I am grateful that I figured it out, and how to overcome other areas of my life! You can do the same – watch the video again and share this blog post.
  2. Celebrities Talk, “The Law Of Attraction”

    Every celebritiy we all know started off as broke, poor, wasted, frustrated, etc as you and/or I. The only thing they did different, was ask, believed, received, and took inspired actions to reach their goals. It’s no different than the job you currently have. It’s no different than the 5k you ran last year. It’s no different than the car you are driving, or the couch you are currently breaking in. You asked, you believed, and you received. You and I do this all the time for some of the smallest things. Our jobs, our friends, etc. Now it’s time to step up our game… if these people can do it – then we can. We already have examples of our success in the application of the law attraction. Just look at what’s around you…you asked, you believed, you recieved. Now say thank you!
  3. Oprah Winfrey Speaks About The Law of Attraction

    We create our lives every single day. Our actions scream very loudly what we really believe. Oprah thought she lost the role because of her weight, so she went to a fat farm.  She went to the audition when she got called…despite the fact the person told her it was not for the “Color Purple.”  She flew to meet the director. She did everything she knew to do and inspired to do, because she asked, believed, and received way before she got the part.  Just look around you, everything you have is because you did the same. Everything you don’t have well, it’s waiting on you.   Everything I want is waiting on me, to ask, believe, and receive. I will confess, sometimes I do get so caught up in the how. It wasn’t until I started investing in my personal development, that I discovered this about myself and it was something I can change. Now, I strive to stay focus on the big picture and what’s important. More importantly I am taking new actions to reach my goals, like blogging and internet marketing to reach that goal of always having income to fly home and see my mamma and family.
Whether we like it or not, the law of attraction is always working. We can change it’s impact on us by changing our paradigms, our way of thinking, and the actions we take to reach our goals/dreams. You’ve wanted to start that business, now here’s your chance. You wanted to send the kids to Europe for a year and you didn’t know how to create the income to do that; well now here’s your chance. You want to work from home and you are straddling fence. Well, get off the fence because your chance is here. All you have to do is take action… none of the people featured in these videos were born with a silver/golden spoons. They took action, they learned, they created their lives… you and I have to do the same. So if you want you life, then take action and create it. Check out the blogging system information listed below. Take action and get the results you want!

3 Major Blocks To Manifesting Your Success

If you ever found yourself wonder why “success” just slips through your fingers, then you should keep reading.  Success is something that we all want. It comes in a lot of different shapes and sizes. Yet, it eludes most of people because there’s things in their way.  This is a huge topic as there are numerous reasons as to why you fight and struggle to reach your definition of success. So we will take this in chucks.

1.  Let’s start with this simple reason. What Is Your Definition Of Success?   Can you answer the question? Most of the people reading this blog have no idea of what success looks like. They can tell you want it is not, however they can’t tell you what it is. People can tell you about what they don’t want, how they don’t want it red, or they don’t want to have to work really hard. Yet, they can’t tell you what is their definition of success.  Therefore, by default, people always get exactly what their definition is not. Let’s read that again. Since you can’t tell the Universe, Source, God what success is for you, then by default you get what it is not for you.  So if it’s not red, white, and blue, that’s all you get because that’s all you are focused on. We always get what we focus on!!!  This is basic law of attraction 101/201/301.

The fastest way to fix this is to define for success for yourself. It can be anything….an extra $1000 per month, or 200% of your sales goal, or $500 extra per month, or living in a 2 bedroom apartment with 1 roommate. It can be whatever you want. You have to say what it is instead. How do I know this? Just look at the world around you. Go outside, take a walk and just notice nature. See all the vegetation growing. See the life around you and it’s all focused on one thing. Being successful and abundant. Animals move towards food sources. Plants bends towards light sources. Even our DNA is very specific about what color, shape, size, etc we are. We must do the same. How frustrated do you get when people are wishy/washy with you over what’s for dinner.photo-1453974336165-b5c58464f1ed

So pull out a pen/pencil and paper and answer these questions:

1. How much money do you want to make a year?   (150k, 300k, 48k, 65k?)

2. What kind of car do you want?

3. What kind of business/job/career do you want?  (Nurse, lawyer, multi-level marketer, educator, EMT, military) (Success is so different for everyone.)

4. How much do you want to travel in the year? 

5. How much do you want in savings?

6. What kind of home do you want or apartment do you want to rent?

7. What kind of education do you want to give your kids?

8. How much do you want to give to your church, favorite charity, etc?

9. How many days a week do you want to work out with your personal trainer?

10. How many educational/personal development training programs do you want to attend?

11. How much money do you want in savings?

Now these questions will start to get the juices pumping and flowing.I think you are starting to get the picture.  A very good book that I read that got me to change my thinking about success and what it means for me was  “You Were Born Rich” by Bob Proctor.  It’s a damn good book and if you read it and go through the exercises you will realize that you can have your definition of success. Here’s a secret. It takes the same amount of energy to focus on what you want, as it does to focus on what you don’t want.  So know what you want – focus on it – and of course take action(s) to get it!!!! The law of attraction can only give what you focus on – positive or negative.

2. Failure to take full responsibility for themselves and their actions. Now maybe you know what you want. Maybe you’ve takephoto-1442473483905-95eb436675f1n some actions to get it. It didn’t work out.  Whom do you blame?  If you say anything other than yourself, I invite you to consider you are the source of the problem.  Look… if you are in Amway and 100’s of people are making their mortgage payment with the business and you aren’t, then it is not the company.  If you are in sales with a bank and 50% of the sales force is over 100% of quota and you are at 60%…is it the bank or the products that’s the problem?   The common denominator is YOU!  You’ve to always take responsibility for you and yourself alone. No matter what’s going on around you. No matter how many are not winning, getting ahead, or producing results, you can only account for yourself and your actions. It doesn’t matter if your company has a crappy website. It doesn’t matter if your up-line doesn’t hold team hang out or training webinars.  You shouldn’t care if the teacher is crappy and can’t spell “I” on the board.  You’ve got to pass that class to graduate and get that degree. All you must care about is “taking full responsibility” of your actions and your results.  This is the second biggest reason why “success” just eludes people. They fail to be responsible for their actions, their results, their work… and they blame everyone and everything. We’ve all done it and seen it done.  So remind yourself and be responsible for your power by reminding yourself of these 5 things:

1. I am always responsible for everything that happens in my world.

2. I am always responsible for my results. Yes I can ask for help and support, read books, attend seminars, take my mentors/managers on sales calls…in the end it’s all about me.

3. It’s always about me. No one cares what Jack, Jane, and Bob did or did not do. They only care about what I did, how I responded, and overcame any particular situation.

4. It’s always about me!!!  Listen, I had to learn the hard way…the God I serve will only ask me about what I did and how did I make life better on planet Earth. How did I use the talents He gave me?  How did I treat the sick, homeless,  and the poor? How did I help my brothers/sisters in need? He’s not going to ask me about Steve Harvey and his success. He’s only concerned with “What did Earl do?”  He will deal with Steve Harvey directly.

5. The biggest take away – it keeps the power focused on me. When you blame others for your mishaps etc…you give away more than your self-power, you give away your “control”  over your ability to create your life to the fullest of your definition of success.    It doesn’t mean you will not have troubles, set backs, people quitting on  you, etc. It just means that you must focus on what you can control which is: yourself, your emotions, your integrity, your actions, and your being.  That’s best you can do in any situation. When you start to blame someone else for anything about you… what you “can’t do, shouldn’t do, won’t do.” Just stop and say, “It’s about me. I’m an adult. How do I make this work?”

Never forget it’s all always about you, because you are the only piece of the puzzle you can move and control.

3. Final piece of the puzzle on success…is just the failure to action. No one has ever raised money for any charity without asking for donations. No one has ever made a cake without getting the ingredients, mixing them, and putting them in the oven. No one has ran a marathon while sitting on the couch. No one has passed any educational program without attending the course either online or in person.  You can’t drive a car without starting the engine. Action, action, action, action. You can’t claim to be in touch and or believe in the law of attraction without taking inspired action!!!! Action!!!  Lack of action to achieve a goal is failure in action.   People get so stuck on “I don’t what to do first.” “I can’t talk to my up-line.” People come up with excuse after excuse as to why they can’t take action to reach their goals.  We’ve all done it. The fastest way to get over this is so simple, but we all just don’t want to do.photo-1452626038306-9aae5e071dd3

1. Take action!

2. Take small action steps?

3. Set a date and time by when you will take action?

4. Take action!!!!

Some think their actions have to be big and huge. Listen…no one that you and I consider to be successful got there over night. Anthony Robbins, Louise Hay, even Eckhart Tolle  all had their small starts and setbacks, etc.  My nephews didn’t come out of their moms walking and talking (although I swear they did.)  I want you to think about to your first driving lesson. What actions did you take to learn how to drive? How did you get your parents to help you learn?  What did you have change about your belief in your abilities to drive?  So it doesn’t matter if you want do Herbal Life or Amway, or internet affiliate marketing, or sale home pregnancy test door to door. It all requires actions to get started and build. So get started right where you are…do what you know to do. Look at the results and make corrections as required. Get a coach/mentor…to help shorten your learning curve so that you can take actions faster and adjust quicker.

These are just 3 quick reasons as to why success seems so distant for folks. There are more and we will discuss them. For now let’s focus on these for these they are the foundation. If you don’t have faith in yourself, you won’t take action. If you aren’t taking actions chances are you are blaming something/someone for your failure or inability to win, which means that you aren’t taking responsibility for yourself and your dreams, which probably means you don’t know what you want. If you knew what you want, then you would not let anyone get in your way.  It’s no different than going to store to buy your favorite after a hard day at the job snack. You let nothing stop you from that… or put gas in your car.  It’s no different when your kid needs to get to the doctor – you move heaven and hell to make it happen. Bring that energy and drive to your goals…and watch them manifest right before your eyes.

Take care!
Earl
