How To See Yourself As A Success – Success is the Pursuit of Goals

How do you define success? Do you base it on the number of toys you have? Or do you base success on how you are doing compared to others?

In this video we explore success from a different point of view, that inspires, empowers, and requires us all to see ourselves differently. In his training program, The New Psychology of Achievement, Brian Tracy explores success from a different point view. Let’s have a high level of discussion on this topic.

 

If you want to get the program for yourself, then here’s a link – The New Psychology of Achievement – http://amzn.to/2ru8OEP

How To Stay Engaged – 3 Tips To Keep You In Your Game

Do you just feel like throwing in the towel at times? Have you ever thought to yourself, “Why am I hanging around these negative nellies?” Do you ever wonder why it’s so important to keep your mindset on positive and lovely things? Then let’s watch this video and have a conversation about it.

My middle nephew came to visit me and to help him with his career plans. During his visit, I got really present to a few things, that I just had to share. One of the biggest things that jumped right out at me was “negative self-talk.” It’s so darn destructive and yet mostly all of us are unaware that we do it in the first place. We do it everytime we dismiss our little wins. We do it when we make excuses for us not doing x,y, or z. We do it to make our friends look and feel better. I can do a whole video series on this. Yet, I only want to focus on 3 quick things you and I can do to keep ourselves engaged and on our game court.

Now on to the video!

 

 

I will confess, I was so worried about putting this video out there and sharing. It wasn’t perfect and blah blah blah. I just finished reading Grant Cardone’s book – Be Obsessed or Be Average.   Now, I am taking action; and that action is doing this. I am going to stick with internet marketing, self-branding till I get it right.  When we stay engaged and on the court, we can get things done and create wins for ourselves. You can win – just stay in the game and on the court.

Please like, comment, share, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.  Together we can win!!!!

Thank you.

Why Changing Your Mindset Is Critical To Your Success

What would you do if you had the magic key to unlock the skills and talent you need to reach your wildest dreams? What would you do, if you could finally make that 60k 100k, 1 million per year? How would your life change if you could just get that little bit of steam?

 

In this video, we talk about the incredible power of mindset, and the why it’s so important. Our mindset is the key to either unlocking our dreams or keeping the tucked and buried deep within us.  I know from personal experience that it was the shift in my mindset that led me to the level of success I’ve achieved in sales. It’s now a new level of mindset I’ve developed and continue to work on, that’s leading me to a new level of performance across many areas of my life.

Mindset is the glue that holds all of the skills, talent, drive, actions taken etc…together. It’s so critical to your success and my success, that we must work on it daily in order to achieve the levels of results we want. Whatever life you want, you can achieve it with the right skills, actions, and mindset.

The Power of Why, Intentions, and Outcomes – Lessons From Bowling

 

Do you ever feel like you are just all over the board when it comes to your business? Do you feel like “this” just ain’t happening? Well after spending the weekend in Vegas for an IGBO bowling tournament and only winning 95 bucks…I have discovered why my performance reflects that “this” ain’t working results. Our results are a direct reflection of our “why, intentions, and outcomes.” Our “why” – why did we start that network marketing business. Our intentions reflect what we planned to do with the business. Let’s be frank, some of us had to plan to do nothing other than “hope” it would just work out. Our outcomes – what are the results we need to be in alignment with our “why” and “intentions.” Again some of us just “hope.” And we get results that looked like we “hoped” for death of the idea. To be successful at anything – our “why” intentions” and “outcomes” must be in alignment. If they are not, then you get results that looks like you “hoped” for something to stick.

The book I started reading this weekend is “Sell or Be Sold” by Grant Cardone.  This book got me to asking myself what’s up? What’s going on? What could I have done differently? If you take the time to step back and evaluate your outcomes, then you can begin to see where you can improve, tweak, and take new actions. This is why I  focus and push to inspire you to invest in your personal development. I can’t think of one of “successful” person that does not invest in the game, mindset, etc.

 

 

 

Look we all want results that propels us towards our definition of the “good life.”  So the question becomes how do we consistently get them…and this book lead me to the answers I discovered and shared in the video above. So go watch the video… and then get the book and read it. If you order the book, then order it from here –“Sell or be Sold.”  

Let me know your thoughts. Share this blog post with others. Let’s help each other win!!!

PSS: Here’s the Facebook post of what my friend Sam accomplished. This is was his first 300 game. His 300 is a good example how this idea can work in any area/goal you want!  Show him some love and support ;-)!

 

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!

How Success Is Linked To Actions – 3 Quotes To Inspire You To Actions

We all have a dream of making it big, telling our love ones that they don’t have to worry about money, or telling the folks at the plant you ain’t coming back. We all dream of that day. Some of us take actions/steps to reach that goal, while some of us sit around and say some day. So for those of us who take those steps/actions, we open up a business or we join a network marketing opportunity. We get off to a great start, then we lose steam. This thing called life starts to eat at us. The wife starts demanding more time. The kids need new shoes, and of course the husband is acting a damn fool. Yet, that dream of success is calls and beckons you come forth. So at this point you just need something to help you get over that “hump.” You want to be reminded that success is a lot hard of work. It will keep you up at night, and you will need the physical strength of 10 bears to make this happen. So here are some quotes that I found to give your body/mind some needed recharge. Keep these posted somewhere, to remind yourself – success is just an action step ahead.

“Success Is Created By Learning and Doing Success.” Earl L. Jones
I really came to this conclusion while learning how to scuba dive a few weekends ago in Monterrey, CA. The only way to achieve anything, or any level of success in anything – at the job, at home, driving a car, etc. You must learn how to do it and then do what you’ve learned. Just think for second. Did you come out of your mom’s womb knowing how to drive a car? Did you know how to read? Did you know how to talk and form something of a complete sentence? You did not. Let’s take it one step further, how much training did you complete on your job/business/etc? So if you want to change your definition of success, achieve a new level of success, or just be a higher degree of success, then you must learn and do what you’ve learned to achieve the success you want. Go learn how to be the success you want, do what you are told, and watch what happens.

12552271_1014212235287001_369747923_n“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.” Richard Branson

Read this quote again. Do you notice a pattern here? Parents, did you read to your kids from the “rule book” on parenting about walking? No, you did not. You taught your little one how to walk…and you let them fall. At some point they got it down, but not without trying and falling. Exactly, that’s how we are with success. We must learn the success steps, fall down, then get up again. Walking requires action…success requires action. Hell even as adults we trip while walking, but that doesn’t stop us from getting up, laughing about it, and posting it on social media.

“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk – and TO ACT.”  Andre Malraux 

We all have goals and dreams. Your goal could be to learn internet marketing, start a business, grow your business, or just to get through the day. The only way any of that is going to happen is with action. My experience has been that I get to caught up in the  “I don’t know what to do.” Or I got caught up in the “I’m scared they will laugh at me.” It happens to all of us. And we must just realize something. If we can get in our cars, on our motorcycles, on our bikes, jog in a not so well lighted park, or work at our jobs, then going for goals is just as easy if not easier. The biggest thing that stops us, is that we are so familiar with our “normal.”  That’s where learning, actions, learning, actions, etc comes in. That creates our new normal, and now the achievement of a particular goal is achieved.

Success is learned actions repeated over and over. Walking is learned repeated over and over. Talking is learned. Reading is learned. Even driving your car to and from work is learned. If you want to succeed in any business, sales position, career, publishing, even just how to work out better, you’ve got to learn and then take the actions required. That’s the only way you are going to know if you what you learned works our not. So whatever dream you have, there’s a course on how to do it and win. Go get take that course, learn it, and then do it.

How Scuba Diving Taught Me Success Is Learned

Getting open water scuba diver certified was a massive accomplishment for me. It meant that my fears of not being able to say afloat in deep water was no longer valid.  It also meant I can learn how to conquer them. A lot of us fear success, money, wealth, a healthy and balance relationship, network marketing, starting our own business. Any fear can be overcame by learning and actions. If I can get scuba diver certified then you can get “certified” in any area of your life where you are afraid to succeed.  
  1. First scuba diving taught me that success is learned. That’s right. Success is learned. We don’t know what success is until we learn it. It’s all learned. It doesn’t matter what the area of your life is you want to improve, change, reinvent etc you are can learn to do it. In order to get certified as a scuba diver I had to take a PADI course at my local dive shop. I had to listen/watch/and do what my amazing instructor Greg Olson of LazyDiver.com said to do. I simply watched him, did what he did, and got the results I wanted. It may have taken me a few tries, but I learned it and got it down. You can see the PADI card as proof. On my fourth and final certification dive my group and I dove 36 feet in Monterrey Bay’s San Carlos Beach. I was able to do that because I learned from a successful diver. I learned how to breath with a scuba tank, descend to the bottom of the ocean floor, swim just a few inches above the floor, etc. I learned and applied all that I learned from Greg and his team. To succeed at any thing you must learn how to do what’s required. You didn’t pop out as a baby with the ability to walk and talk, you had to learn. Learn to succeed by taking the courses/training that you need in order to win – then do what you learned.

  2. Second thing I learned from Scuba diving is this. There will always be something that you have to deal with. I got sea sick while waiting for my last certification. Yes you can get sea sick, just bobbing up and down in the water in scuba gear. My last certification test was a control free descent to the bottom, float just above the ocean floor, completely remove the mast, use the compass to navigate away from the dive point and return at 24 feet of ocean water. Not a problem – right. Once underwater, the sea sickness went away. Once I got the signal from my instructor I removed my mask. All of sudden cold ocean water is on my face. I didn’t open my eyes at all. My breathing starts to escalate and I am starting to panic. This is despite the fact I have full tank of air and my regulator in my mouth (I can breath.) All sorts of thoughts went through my head. Even the thought of “you can’t do this.” That’s when something said, “To hell with that.” I take a deep breath. Slowed down my breathing. Put my mask back on. Purge it as best as I could. Opened my eyes…and no salt water didn’t bother my eyes. It was then I noticed the mask wasn’t properly sealed around my face…because all the water was in the mask again. I cleared the mask again, got it properly sealed, and kept it moving. Now it was freaking freaky! Yes it was!!!! I’m not going to lie to you. But isn’t that how life goes? You have everything in place and water comes rushing in. It freaks you out, your wife out, your boss out. Everyone is freaking out, while ignoring the obvious leaky seal around the mask that is designed to keep the water out. If I had not gotten in control of my thoughts, my emotions, etc…who knows what would have had happened. It’s 24 feet of ocean water with a strong current that you can actually see and feel. That experience really taught me that you’ve got to always stay in control of yourself. It’s so easy get caught up and swept away in what’s not working, what’s not going right, or the why this isn’t working. When it’s just a simple “reseal your mask” and clear the water from it. Don’t lose your hard work because you got some water in your mask.

  3. Final lesson from getting scuba diver certified. There’s nothing on this planet you and I can’t learn to do. If you have a fear of success, then learn about success. If you have a fear of money, then learn about money. If you have a fear of network marketing, then go and learn about network marketing. If you fear job interviews, then learn how to do them and go have some. Look we didn’t come from our mom’s as baby knowing how to read, walk, talk, eat, wipe our butts, or even how to go the bathroom. We had to learn to that. So winning at life is no different. You have to learn and do. If you really want to take it further, then learn, do, then teach. Whatever you fear – go learn it – and do it. There’s a whole world waiting for you to explore, see, touch, taste, and experience. If you allow fear of your age, sexual orientation, education or lack their of, your wife/husband, parents etc keep you from it – then you are just missing out. Thus you’ve allowed your fear to teach you failure. Go learn success, do it, and be it!

If you are afraid to do internet marketing, network marketing, blogging, direct sales, start your own home business, etc. You don’t have to be afraid any more. You can learn to succeed at all those and change your world. Below is a link to video for you to watch that talks about blogging and system I’m using. Go watch it. You might learn something that will make a difference to help you get over your fears, so that you can take action(s) to get what you want. And at the very bottom of the screen is a place for you put your name and email to get information on how to work from home. You can learn to succeed, the question is do you want to. 

 Take care!

Internet Marketing 2.0 – Tools That Can Have You Marketing On The Internet Like A Ninja

Did you know there over 2 billion people on this planet that have social media accounts? Of that 2 billion, about 1.5+ billion are actively used. Did you know about 45% of world’s population, that’s about 3 billion people actively use the Internet? Just about 3.6 billion people use their smartphone and tablets to access the web. That’s according to brief report posted on WearSocial

Now with those type of numbers, is it any wonder why successful organizations/home businesses/multi-level marketers/internet marketers focus on social media interaction and syndication? If you had the right tools, training, and support how much of that could you get for yourself and your business?

  1. Kalatu Premium

    kalatu imageNow before I describe this hack in details. Let’s just put this out here. If you have not read my previous blog posts about blogging/social media – go read them. This piece is the next step…that I discovered by talking with other successful internet marketers. (As I learn, so will I share. I want us all to win.)

    I know I told you to blog…and so now I am going to give you an actual tool. Kalatu Premium is a blogging platform that is being used by over 100’k online marketers. It’s what I am currently using…and I am using because of the rich content and online training it provides. This product not only makes it simple to create a blog post, it actually has learning modules on blogging/internet marketing/ etc. So you blog and learn at the same time. I tried it on a trail membership, posted a couple of blogs and was like… “this is so much easier than I thought.” I love the fact you can monetize your blog with affiliate marketing links ;-). It comes loaded with premium blog themes, widgets, plugins & applications. You have 10 blogs on 1 account  – a blog for everything on your mind. Check it out if you are still looking for a blog platform, or if you feel stuck with a free one/something that requires a lot of time to just make simple post. This could be a good fit for you and your internet marketing objectives. So far, it’s working for me and several 100k+ marketers.

     

  2. blog 11 of 21 of 1GetResponse Email AutoResponder

    I can’t stress this enough. You must have an email auto responder. How else do you plane to stay in touch with your audience? I am currently using GetReponse – because it works will with the Kalatu Premium Blogging Platform. It’s simple to use. It also has a learning tools to help you with OJT (On the job training). If you have a blog/website and you don’t have this tool, then you are just playing. Real simple and easy to use…and very cost effective. (Yes, if you think you can build a brand online, without investing in tools and technology, then you might want to stick with watching reruns of your favorite tv shows.) You can create all sorts of email campaigns for your business. Let your clients know about every post, if you are going to watch a football game, any new products, or tips and tricks you have to cleaning up after our pets/kids/love ones/or those in-laws. People want to feel a connection with you and your organization…this a faster/quicker way of doing it!

     

Syndicate to Social Media 

OnlywireNow this hack I just discovered and I wanted to get it out to you as quickly possible. This tool OnlyWire will allow you to post your blog/website to over 30 social media sites in minutes! There are so many social media sites it’s hard to keep up. Yet this company does it for me. I’ve posted a few of my previous blog posts to some of the sites, and already got some new visitors to my blog. It’s all about driving real/genuine traffic to your blog!!! I can’t stress this enough…if people can’t find your website…they will never come to your website. So get this and use it. In extra fairness, you may want outsource the setting up the social media platforms they have listed. Or you may want to do it yourself. It’s up to you…but either way. This is a must have!!!

 

 

Internet marketing is not as hard as you think. Way too many people are doing it successfully. Now I’ve tried this before with a just a simple blog platform. It was cumbersome (like going a date with a cheap person.) I couldn’t easily add affiliate marketing links and banners. After I paid for hosting, I had to pay for better looking themes…and blah blah blah. It’s like hanging out with your ex’s parents at a shut-in. Plus I had no one/no support structure/no built in training. I threw in the towel!!!

Then I found Kalatu Premium blogging system. It had the training, learning, the support, the community. People I could connect with… and I was like okay. So I’ve now posted my 16 blog in the last 2-3 weeks. I’ve had over 1500 people look at my Facebook fan page. I’ve connected with some great people… and I learned of a new tool to help me push out my blog…that I am now sharing with you. Not to mention, I have a full time job, I also teach indoor cycling 4 days a week, a league bowler, taking swimming lessons so that I can get scuba diver certified, plus I volunteer in my community. Plus, I have to see my mamma back home several times year. Do I sound like I have time to figure this stuff out on my own, and expect to win at this new game? Exactly. Yes, it’s hard work. It’s not get rich quick/easy. Now the question is will you use these tool or something similar to get yourself to where you want to be?  That’s all that really matters.Let me know your thoughts/comments/feedback in the Facebook box below. If you want to stay connected you can connect with me on Facebook. And if you want to stay inspired and motivated, sign up for my blog. I am learning/sharing as I am going.

2 Powerful Success Quotes

According to just about any American dictionary success is defined as a noun with one the following meanings:

1. The favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals.

2. The attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.

3. A performance or achievement that is marked by success, as by the attainment of honors: i.e. John’s play was an instant success.

4. A person or thing that has had success, as measured by attainment of goals, wealth, etc.: “Earl was a great success on the talk show.”

5. Obsolete. outcome.

Now did you notice the definition did not include a make model of a car, home, clothes, etc. That means we define success…and we must define it for ourselves. We all want the same thing, just different variations of the same thing. How do you define success? What does it look like for you? How do you know when you’ve achieved it? And what new actions can you take today/tomorrow to achieve your definition of success?

  1. The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

    Vince Lombardi
    Success at any level is achieved by hard work, dedication, and determination. Stay with me. A person who make $40k a year doesn’t have the same level of hard work, dedication, and determination as a person who makes $90k per year. A person who makes $154k a year doesn’t have the same level of hard work, dedication, and determination as a person who make $1 million per year. And yet, all of them with the right kind of hard work, dedication, and determination could join the person who makes $1 million per year. I will let you ponder on that for awhile.
  2. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.

    Jim Rohn
    jim rohn footprints in the sandSuccess as noun is the result of ‘actions.’ The person who makes $1 million a year has a particular set of daily actions, which are different than the person who make $250k per year. We all do this. Professional football players don’t practice like you and I do for their games. They have a totally different set of routines/work outs/etc. Their level of success is at a higher level. They are using the same tools…just on a different level. We each have our own way of doing things to achieve our definition of success.
Success is a noun. We determine what that noun looks like, etc. The one thing I know for sure in order to achieve any higher level of success you currently have, you must do something different, bigger, and harder than what you are currently doing. You’ve also have to change the way you think about and see success. This is why investing in ourselves is so important (read/study success.) Otherwise, you are just spinning your wheels.  You will never make $100,000 doing/thinking/being a person who makes $35,000. To make a $100k per year, you have to become that person…who works at new level of  hard, dedicated, determined, and who practices those newly required disciplines on a daily basis.
You Are More Than A Conquer.
