Have you ever had a friend give you a give you a very needed “kick in the pants when you really needed it, even though it might have stung… it made a BIG difference?.  My friend once  shared with me a simple course correction that I could make in my approach to life and my network marketing business that would have a significant effect on my results, and happiness. It was so impactfull that it touched me emotionally. Well..it slapped me between the ears and upside the head actually! That’s the mark of TRUTH  It lazers in on the SOUL. I remembered that this same friend had forwarded this very special article by Dave Saunders to me, and I thought , “I have read this information many times and I must not have been ready to “get it AGAIN”…just when I needed to apply it most! So I decided to post this special article adding what I like to call “FORMULA FOR BREAKTHROUGH”…..entitled:

BE-DO-HAVE  By Dave Saunders

I reached a point where I had done well, but had hit a plateau.  I wanted more.  I wanted to build my business more successfully, and I wanted to continue growing.  I asked a trusted mentor what to do.  His response: “Be Do Have.”

I had heard this lesson before.  In fact, I had heard it from more than one person.  And it wasn’t the response that I was looking for.  I wanted to know what to do!  I wanted him to tell me what to do so I could go work hard and create explosive growth in my business.  I was willing to work hard—really hard.  In fact, I was willing to work harder and do more than anyone else.  Isn’t that how it’s supposed to work?

I decided to take a breath and be a bit more receptive.  “Okay,” I said, “tell me how Be Do Have is going to build my business.  Although the truth is, what I really want to know is just what to DO.” [click to continue…]

Enthusiasm Flips the Switch!

by limitlesslaura

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,” Do you think there’s truth to that? Look back over some of the highlights in your career, schooling, relationship, spiritual life, parenting or anything you’ve done that was  truly great, and bet you dollars to donuts that you were enthused when you accomplished it, and people could feel your enthusiasm!

A leader that I once worked with, used to have a saying that always stuck in my mind: “Knowledge is Power, but Enthusiasm flips the switch”.  What comes to mind when you read that? How does it make you feel? As long as you’re not dead, it should make you very excited! Knowledge IS power to be sure, and being a well informed, educated person will take you far in life. The thing is, it can be pretty boring listening to someone go on about a subject or even engage in a conversation when there’s no passion or enthusiasm. Have you ever sat through a class or lecture that you could not wait to get out of because it was so boring? I have a theory why that is. I think there’s only one reason such talks are boring. Either the teacher is not enthusiastic about what he or she is teaching or speaking about, or the listener has absolutely no interest and enthusiasm for the speaker. I LOVE listening to a passionate speaker! They are engaging, funny, and relate to us in the audience. I think it’s all about connection too.

What is enthusiasm? Is it mere excitement? If you ask most people, they would tell you it’s something more, but they can’t really put their finger on what that more is.. To me enthusiasm is a deep movement of the spirit that shows all over you in such a way that it moves others. It’s an emotional response that combines many feelings, of joy, excitement, anticipation, and other positive attraction.  It bubbles up inside you, and there’s a physical response in your stomach, and all over your body! When you are enthused, you are magnetic, persuasive (without trying) and the one people want to follow. The root of the word Enthusisam is “Enthos” which means Of-God or éntheos  having a god within.

Watch this video and tell me in the comments below how you feel after watching it.

VIDEO

 So How Can Enthusiasm Help You Do Better in Your Business? It’s Natural…

You might have heard the phrase “Ignorance on Fire beats Knowledge on Ice every time”. What this means is that if two sales people could go in to present to the same prospect, and one could be completely prepared with a notebook, power point, and all the facts and figures. He would present all the information perfectly and answer all the prospect’s questions.
The second sales person would show up a little late, with a big smile on his face and a story about his beautiful daughter that he just walked to the bus stop. She splashed mud on her dress, so they had to go home and put on a clean dress. “It was the best morning we’ve  ever had together, jumping in the puddles, holding hands, splashing each other and crunching the fall leaves under our feet”.
As the prospect is positively captivated by this story, the sales person asks, “How about your daughter, You have one about the same age don’t you? What’s her name?” and they spend the next 10 minutes talking about their daughters. The presentation is still made to the prospect, but in a much more passionate way, with far less detail.  The prospect hears “the music” more than the words. His passion comes through so LOUDLY, that the prospect just wants some of whatever he has.
Which salesperson do you think will get the sale?
You and I both know it’s sales person number two every time, because of his heartfelt enthusiasm and connection with his prospect. Now, I am most certainly NOT saying that you don’t have to be prepared for presentations, and up to your tasks. If you are a professional, you  should behave like one. What I AM saying is that you will be remembered for your “spark”, your personality, and your genuine enthusiasm about what you do, and your own life.
I’ve been around truly enthusiastic people  all my life,  that derive their enthusiasm spiritually and they are contagious! You just want to keep hanging around them because they make you feel so good. This is another quality. Enthusiasm is not so much about you as it is about others. Give of your energy and your time, and allow your cause to take on a life of its own.
The bottom line is that enthusiasm does FLIP THE SWITCH to create magic in almost all things you do! Just remember you hold the switch, and if you feel yourself in your head, get back to your heart, and touch that spirit of ENTHUSIASM, embrace it, and feel it! Give it away to others and it will GROW like a garden.

Are YOU The Leader People Are Looking For? Have you considered lately how hungry people are to be uplifted, inspired, and LED? The industry is loaded with people out there looking for the “hitter”, or the “big fish” they can land in their business, that can bring over a down line, or at least a SUPERSTAR that will go to work, build their compensation plan, and sponsor a bunch of people!! Sound familiar? This is a very common desire and one that we hear every day. Fall out, or attrition, gets a little disconcerting sometimes, and every day it feels like you have to keep sponsoring people faster than they can quit. Duplication, and a fast growing, on fire group that TAKES ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN…that’s pure magic. When it happens to you, it’s the most exciting phenomenon, that you want to pinch yourself, because you can’t stop it if you try!!

Guess what. There’s a secret we’re going to let you in on, that the  Alpha Leaders know, a million dollar secret. It’s called the “I AM”. When you KNOW who you are, and your BELIEF in YOU is so high that YOU DON’T move.. (it’s called posture) people will naturally be drawn to you and whatever you have! They will want to do business with you because they will sense you are “IT”, and someone they can trust, someone who is constantly giving, loving and caring about others.  You MIGHT share your opportunity with them IF they are extremely lucky…but it’s down on the list, because you don’t need to even mention it. Of course you WILL, because you have the Goose that laid the golden egg! Remember, your belief level SHOWS all over your body language, and if you get it right…People just naturally want whatever you have. It’s the “music behind the words”. It would not even matter what you said!! People have to have your product, and opportunity, just to play with you, and be a part of what you are doing.!

Remember that thing called the Law Of Attraction? What does Law Of Attraction say: Like attracts Like OR That which is like unto itself is drawn. So, Would it not make sense that if we are directing all of our attention outward “looking” for that Leader, Superstar etc, it would stand to reason, that we inwardly believe our business, “lacks”, we lack, and do not shine that dynamic inspiring “fired up” energy outwardly!! Make sense? What I mean is this: A wise sponsor told me many years ago: “Stop searching for that leader, and start BEING the one they’re looking for, and your business will be set on fire in no time!” Indeed it was, and I went to the Top 10 and won a Carribean Cruise!

Many people are wandering out in the dark looking for that beacon of light, and they are looking to be uplifted by people who KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THEY ARE GOING. Do you know where you’re going? Are you emanating the LIGHT and FIRE of a TOP 10 Leader or even a #1 Leader? If not I invite you to sit down and look at why not. You can inspire your people, and lead them to the top, even if you only have a handful, because they will feel your passion, and they will want what YOU HAVE. They WILL WANT TO GO WHERE YOU ARE GOING!!  So watch this video, and Take my challenge this week to BECOME the LEADER PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR!!

Common Mistakes We See Newbies Make

After getting through the time of being a newbie myself way back when, I can sure remember how I felt.  Other network marketers were out there succeeding, and it seemed like I was missing the “magic dust” or something. I felt as if I was doing everything right. I decided to look back at myself, and a few new people I know, and some common blunders that can be easily corrected to move more quickly along the path to success.

1) STOP getting ready to get ready. Stop organizing your work space, making sure your scripts are ok, going to meetings alone, going to webinars that you’ve attended for the 20th time and know by heart, and my downfall to this day, (and I am a seasoned PRO !!) spending too much time online and calling it “work”. You get the idea, it’s called wasting valuable time.

Fix: Get into Activity! Talk to People, Lots and lots of people, and then talk to more people. Here’s an exercise: Get out a piece of paper TOMORROW morning and document every 30 minutes exactly what you’re doing, during the time that you’ve agreed to work on your business. Devote your time to Revenue Producing activities only. What are they? A revenue producing activity is anything that involves exposing a potential customer or new distributor to your product or opportunity: Prospecting calls, one-on-ones, Facebook chats with a REAL prospect, skype chats, Webinars with a Guest, Meeting with a Guest, Follow Ups, Contacting leads you’ve generated online through your funnels.

2) Ask for Help! I am amazed at the number of marketers I talk to all the time who perceive themselves as totally alone in the world with no resources, no help, and no idea what to do next.

Fix: Most people have pretty good common sense right? Or is it just me? If you are not getting help, for goodness sakes A-S-K !! If your sponsor flew the coop, and theirs did too, get on the horn to the corporate office and find out who can help you. The company will always put you in touch with your up line leader who is HUNGRY and standing by for the next ready and willing marketer to put their hand in the air to be taught. I did this when I was serious about going full time, and my mentor spent every day on the phone coaching me, flew out to do meetings, and I  owe him the world for that.

3) Decide if you want it, and how bad you want it- Are you serious about this? I know it sounds a bit harsh, but some can ride the fence for years, and until we truly commit, the Universe won’t respond, people won’t respond, and not much will happen. Is this a part time business, a full time business? or maybe just a hobby? There’s no shame in that. Some of the businesses like Stamp it Up!, Creative Memories, Pampered Chef and the like are a fun hobby for many young moms, who would otherwise lose it without something to call their own.  when I was a young mother, I had a small calligraphy business, addressing envelopes for weddings. It was a hobby, because it was fun, gave me something to do that was my quiet time in the evening and I got a little “mad money”.  I think some people judge when everyone’s situation is different. not everyone has to be a serious network marketer, only the ones who decide to be because they want to manage a REAL business like a business. We’ve talked about this many times, but because the cost of entry is so low, the cost of exit is low too. Make sure you know what level you’re playing at-and be OK with it! When you decide to take on a business, treat it like one, and it will pay you as such.

Fix: Get out another piece of paper and put a line down the middle. Column A “I play full out” Column B “I play half way” Then list all the areas that your business needs your energy in: Prospecting, Follow Up, Writing content, Record Keeping, Supporting team, etc. List what’s pertinent to your business. I don’t know what that is. For my business, it’s sharing water, connecting with my customers, talking to new people. Then rate yourself in each area from 1 to 10 honestly in either column. If you play full out, rate that one. If you play half way.rate that one. Then when you finish you’ll have a clear indication where your weaknesses are, and how serious you are RIGHT NOW. Concentrate on the areas that need improvement.

4) Stop looking outside yourself for the answer. I remember years ago one day being at the height of frustration with a what I saw at the time as failure. I had been working hard, calling my leads, working my list, and exposing my prospects to the opportunity exactly like I was taught to do. I was coming up dry. Nothing. I called my mentor and said “I have had it! I am doing everything you’ve trained me to do!! Why am I not having a breakthrough?” Do you know what he had the gall to say to me? “Guess, you haven’t done enough yet, Go do it some more”. After I recovered from peeling myself off the floor, he said, “Laura, you’re one of the best distributors I’ve worked with, and YOU ARE doing everything right, it just takes time, and we all pay our dues learning how to talk to people” It was a week later that I made my first $1295 sale. And after that my business took off. I was eventually #1 income earner in that company two separate months.

Fix: Praise yourself daily for the little wins. Do personal development 30 minutes a day, every day. Go to this inspirational blog. Expand your mind, and continue to develop you. Work the numbers, and understand they are just numbers, and don’t sweat it. After a while a ratio will emerge, and you’ll talk to 20 people and get a sale, then 15, then 10 and so on!

5) Don’t blame your up line for your failures. - Ouch! There I said it. Many times we want to look everywhere else but at our own lack of activity, or flat out mistakes as to why our business is not growing the way we want it to. Blaming our sponsor, or even the upper leadership is very common, because there’s a miscommunication that something is owed from the beginning like the infamous “I’ll put people under you”. If you start your business expecting “spillover” you are DOOMED before you even get going! If it happens that’s a bonus..but PLEASE don’t wait for it to happen and use it as a convenient excuse to slow down, get angry or quit.

Fix: Take Ownership of your Enterprise! From the very beginning, it’s all about that decision again, and it’s up to nobody else but you! You can be the CEO of your million dollar company. That’s a very good thing.

Our destiny in this business is our own and we have the keys to our own mothership. Your decisions are important and your daily approach can affect those decisions and their outcomes. Be professional and sure footed once you commit to this, and don’t expect anyone to do it for you. It’s just one of those things- you have patiently persevere to be indoctrinated into the club of income earners.

Over the past 5 months I have been learning how to manage pain in a whole new way. It’s completely changed my life, and my outlook on health. Pharmaceuticals can only do so much. After a while pain medication can stop giving the body the originally intended benefit, and actually cause more harm than good. I found that my pain receptors were shot, and pain to me is ten times what it would be to a normal person.

 

 

My nervous system is like a circuit board that has gone haywire. Being introduced to Mindfulness as a way of pain management, along with breathing exercises and physical therapy has allowed me to slowly taper off the pain medication and I am already half way there. I am feeling so very much better.

Mindfulness is relatively simple concept that can yield extremely powerful results. One of the foremost authors on the subject of mindfulness,

Jon Kabat-Zinn, says :

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way:

On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.”

What I am learning through mindfulness practice is how to be here, and only here, fully present. I notice myself wanting to worry about the future, and just bring my awareness back to right now. I notice thoughts about the past, and how I could have been better, but it’s just a thought, and I let it pass by. Very cool. Now I’m not saying that I never worry or think about the past, but mindfulness has helped me tremendously with feeling anxious, and depression.

Here is another explanation:

“Mindfulness means deliberately attending to and becoming more aware of our experience: our thoughts, feelings and body sensations. This allows us to clearly perceive thoughts, physical sensations, emotions and events at the moment they occur without reacting in an automatic or habitual way. Experiences don’t overwhelm us and we become steady through life’s ups and downs.”
Founder of Breatheworks
where her site says:
“The Breathworks approach to Mindfulness-Based Pain Management (MBPM) is the most comprehensive, in-depth, scientifically up-to-date and user-friendly approach to learning the how of living with chronic pain and reclaiming one’s life that I know of…..I admire Vidyamala tremendously… her approach could save your life and give it back to you.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD author of Full Catastrophe Living and Coming to Our Senses Professor Emeritus of the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

As for my pain management, the psychologist I see uses the same program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and has done some mindfulness exercises with me, in his office that have really helped me calm my pain down. He recorded them so I can listen any time. One is a Body Scan, which takes you through each part of the body very slowly, but in a specific way. Jon Kabat-Zinn is the authority and pioneer in this field. His books are very good, like Full Catastrophe Living and Wherever You Go, There You Are. Look him up on You Tube and Amazon.

Meditation and more specifically Buddhism, Yoga, TM, and other types of spiritual practice is also mindfulness practice, so it’s by no means new, and in fact thousands of years old. Allowing your mind to quiet, being still and going within is the first step. There’s noting to do believe it or not. Just sit, be still and allow thoughts to pass, allow peace to come, Allow God to speak to you. It’s amazing.

Pain can be diminished greatly by taking focus to present moment awareness, and simply breathing. My physical therapist showed me this video about

Simple Diaphramatic Breathing

As you see the diaphram is free moving, gently expanding and contracting. It’s separate from the lungs, and can be very beneficial in helping the body to relax. As it pertains to mindfulness, when you concentrate on the diaphram going up and down inside your body, and picture it suspended like this video, breathing becomes focused, and more calming,very quickly, the blood pressure can go down, pain and stress can be reduced as well.

I am JUST learning this stuff, so this is a very basic overview, and if you want to learn more I would recommend a few things. First off, if you have any kind of chronic condition, this works wonders, so ask your doctor for a referral to a local therapist or mindfulness program in your area, if you don’t go to one already, and ask about mindfulness exercises. They will know.

Some great mindfulness resources are:

Any book or video by Jon Kabat Zinn

BreatheWorks

Finding Peace in a Frantic World

That should get you started. It does not take much as it it extremely easy and very simple. You will love it.

Namaste.

Turning Your Focus to Mindset

by limitlesslaura

 

 

Recently I had the awakening of a lifetime! I had the great pleasure of be willing to take a good long hard look at myself, get vulnerably honest, speak the truth and tell myself what was not working with my mindset. When I got to the answers, I came up with this: YOU (me) need to FOCUS on MINDSET (like very seriously). The success you have in life is directly proportionate to the size of your personal  growth!!

Last December after much soul searching,  I came to the conclusion  that I had neglected my mindset, self talk, and the role that my  inner view of myself played in my life. I took a look at what was my “why”, my purpose, and my greater overall vision and picture I see for  myself. I asked the toughies like:  Where am I going? Where am I taking others? If I didn’t KNOW FOR SURE…How would others want to come along?

Positive Mindset In = Positive Mindset Out!

What came about was magnificent!! I focused on my mindset very intensely. I made my own personal growth and development almost like a “classroom” atmosphere, in my head, my heart, and my home. I got out my favorite books, some blank journals, stuff to create dream boards, index cards, markers, audios, and even cancelled the tv service for a time. The only things I watched were You Tube videos that pertained to my mindset and self-development. The only things I listened to were Inner Circle audios, Anthony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield, Esther Hicks, and others.

I took the cards and wrote my goals and placed the all over the house! It looked a little silly around her when guests came over, but they know  when I put my mind to something, I don’t mess around! For the next 90 days it has been like concentrated mindset BELIEF tank in this house. Nothing goes in that is not positive.

Results are the Only Way You Know Your Mindset Has Changed

My business is flourishing! I have great things happening all around me!! I have earned more in one month than I ever have in my online business. People are excited, and all kinds of abundance is flowing. Good things are springing up from all around!

Does that mean I have slowed down on personal development because I am achieving results? NO WAY! In fact, I have increased it. We attended an event recently, and listened to some of the top earners in our company. The thread that went through all of their talks, was that they are spending at least 2 hours a day on reading and personal development.

Just as important as feeding the information in, is getting still, and listen for quiet answers that will come.

It all a decision, and the material to feed into your brain is available. Reach out for it and start feeding it to yourself.

You’ll know You are a True LEADER… when a Skeptic gets you FIRED Up, but You Don’t Play

Do you get riled up when someone you admire or care about comes down on the negative side of your entrepreneurial passion? Your Precious Business?  If you are serious about what you do, the people you work with and especially the company, it’s structure, comp plan and owners…

When Skeptics Can’t Get to You..You’re No Longer In IT..

“IT’S IN YOU..”

Here’s Why:

It’s usually your friends and family who don’t understand what you do for a living. You know the drill..Aunt Martha (the Skeptic) is over for Sunday dinner and the conversation gets around to “So Bob, how’s that selling thingy-ma-jiggy that you were doing.Did that ever pan out?” She follows with.. “Oh dear, it’s ok, those things never DID work out for you anyway… There all a bunch of get rich quick scams, especially the Internet ones. Your uncle has checked them all out”.

(well then it must be gospel right?) Couldn’t you just laugh? or scream!!?

Years ago I used to come back with all the reasons the skeptics were wrong, and fight, fight, fight. Then it occurred to me…The ONLY way Aunt Martha would realize I had any credibility, and my business was legit, was to be WILDLY successful, and to help a large trainload of people after me to be wildly successful too.

Spouses can be tricky skeptics, because you have to LIVE with them. You must be STRONG guys..and fight the urge to prove anything. It won’t matter. They will stand their ground, because they have seen you either have mediocre success or even fail over and over and over.The only thing that will satisfy them is CASH and LOTS of it coming in on a consistent basis. That’s a high pressure environment to live in and work in, and I commend anyone who can pull it off.

If you are blessed with a supportive spouse, you are very fortunate, or even better a business partner like Larry & I have chosen to work it. We found when we met that we had the same dream, and we doubled our efforts!

What about colleagues? Do you have friends or coworkers who criticize what you do? Maybe these skeptics don’t believe your company is real. Maybe they are from the old school and think you’re crazy to put a dime into internet marketing when millions of people are competing on Google every day.

Talk is cheap. There is nothing that satisfies skeptics like REAL RESULTS. Nothing will make a person shut the “f” up like cold hard undeniable results. Especially if you’re not the only one having them but you’re team is too.

Being defensive, lashing out, and giving lots of excuses..does not “excuse” you from getting results.  Appreciate the opinion of others even if you don’t particularly like it. You never know when that person’s loyalty could be critical to you.

Ask questions in return, and be smart. Ask why it so important to them… Some of these critics make this negativity part of their life, like they have something to prove to the world. That’s a heavy sack to carry around. Show some caring and understanding instead of anger.  Don’t engage the negative people the way they expect you to. Most skeptics will just go away, because you won’t fight them, and they are looking for a good fight!

You can always take the attitude like my good friend Lisa Kitter, a well know industry trainer, author, coach and radio host.

I’ve been a home-based business owner for 20 years and I realize that skeptics come with the territory. I understand that some people consider themselves to be “victims” of the entrepreneur world and therefore they become skeptical as to whether it is possible, to make money, by working from home.Let’s face it, being an entrepreneur is all about Risk and Reward. 

It truly drives me crazy when people say they were “burned” in a network marketing or home based business venture! You can’t be skeptical and expect to win in life! 

Come on…what does that mean? Burned? Really? Look, either you’re an entrepreneur or not.

If you are an entrepreneur,  then you realize that simply enrolling into a program/company isn’t enough and the money is not going to fall from the sky You must roll your sleeves up and “Go To Work!”

Toni BanksI wrote this the morning that my dear friend Toni Banks passed away on December 31, 2012.

“My beautiful friend went to be with her sweetheart this morning..and though our Doug Banks must be very excited right now to be holding his wonderful wife in his arms again…Toni Banks We and the entire Enagic family will miss you so much..You have given us so much knowledge, heart, love, PASSION, Drive, Devotion..Possibility & BIG Thinking and So much more! Your Inspiration to us will LIVE ON Forever Toni..We Love YOU..As Requested By YOU We CELEBRATE Your Life!!”

Her thoughts, visions and goals have always been GRAND and LIMITLESS and taught us to STRETCH OURSELVES to be the GREATEST versions of our BEINGS …
to HONOR GOD in ALL we do and always Praise Him in our daily life.

Toni, We LOVE You Sweet Lady,

I will always dedicate my success to you, and carry you in my heart always!

Toni Banks was a 7 figure annual earner in the network marketing industry, and one of the most powerful sales leaders and personal recruiters the direct sales industry has ever seen. She was known for her ability to be results oriented and always getting the JOB DONE. while she nurtured her teams to huge growth with her husband Doug, who tragically passed away in the fall of 2010. Toni’s leaves behind a legacy to those teams all over the world literally, in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Toni Banks’ Famous Count to 4 Manifestation Formula

I have been thinking about what my dear friend, long time business partner and amazing teacher Toni Banks used to teach us..Probably the GREATEST concept that ever affected my life was “Count to 4″ and Here’s How It Works
1. Decide-Get really and truly CLEAR on what you want..Know it, See it, Picture it, Feel it Deep in Your Bones! Declare IT – Tell God and Shout to the Universe that YOU WILL have it! It’s Already in Motion..You Just have to tune into it.

2. BELIEVE Have True Faith that it WILL Happen..Believe like you’ve never BELIEVED before! Just KNOW that it will Manifest…and It will. It’s in that knowing, that the manifestation comes.

3. Cancel All the Negatives (The HOW) Don’t Worry about HOW it will happen, the “what if’s”, the people who will tell you that you’re crazy etc. Let that all go..Release it!

4. Stay in Gratitude and Love.. ! “Keep love and gratitude in your heart – praise God and the universe for your successes and allow Him to guide you. Listen to the quiet voice within!”

I think we would all agree that we who knew Toni saw her create magic in her life numerous times, and we who used this formula have as well!

From my perspective I think Toni would want to be remembered more than anything for her devotion to Her Heavenly Father, and her Family, as well as her Country, The United States of America. She held those three things most precious, and always stood proud and spoke loud in her love, faith and patriotism.

Toni Banks…Your Huge Presence as a Leader, A Big Loud Strong Voice in The World, An Opinion, A Guiding Force, a Teacher, and Friend

will be with us Always

After her funeral..I wrote:

“Said goodbye to a The Biggest Thinker I have ever known today. Toni was someone who pushed my mind open to places FAR beyond where I believed it could go, and showed me not only how to DREAM great things…but HOW to MAKE THEM HAPPEN in my life very effortlessly. I will carry her legacy of MANIFESTATION of WEALTH with me always and know that I am a better person, as we all are for having been touched by her HUGE SPIRIT OF SERVICE and GIVING…I Love You Toni … and will miss you every day..but as you asked, will not be sad, but rather, with get on with LIVING BIG in your memory!!”

We will Not Mourn or Cry for You as You asked…

But CELEBRATE YOU!!

We LOVE YOU!

Let’s start a little outside the box…What do you thinkThe #1 Secret to Failure in MLM is? ..Giving Up!! Quitting!! Throwing in the towel; saying you can’t do it; saying yes to your j.o.b!

SO….What is The #1 Secret to SUCCESS IN MLM??

Be Here In A Year, and Vow That Failure is Not an Option!! The only way you can fail at this is if you quit. .You might have heard this before. But it is glossed over way too lightly. People drop like flies in our industry. Did you know that only 3% are making the good money?

We see it over, and over and over. People who join the business, call us and say “I am so excited, I am really going to make a lot of money!!” Do we believe them?  It may sound cruel but- never.They can be the biggest hot-shot.. We  like to say “honk as you’re goin’ by!!” They can have the best story, the best ideas, the best list, etc. But it is all talk, without a few things: COMMITMENT + PERSISTENCE + DETERMINATION + ACTIVITY, ACTIVITY, ACTIVITY

                         The most  critical ingredient. Secret to Success

by far that you need in your business is COMMITMENT. It’s sorely lacking all around us. Take a good look in your heart and ask your self, “How committed am I to making this work? Will I be doing this a year from now?

It all starts with a DECISION. The root of the word decision means to “cut off from any other possibility” So if you are TRULY COMMITTED, and you decide to make this work..it’s a done deal!! YOU CAN RELAX!! The rest is just foot work!! There is NO other outcome!

But sometimes it doesn’t go so well, and there are bumps in the road. Times can get tough, and people say NO. Negative family and friends get us down.

You have to have Bull Dog Determination when you get in Network Marketing!! If you don’t, the first disappointment that comes along will blow you right out of the business. It’s like this: If you purchase a franchise like a McDonald’s, you are going to invest about a quarter of a million dollars or more. You are going to go through very specific, intensive training, and be given many specialized tools to set up your restaurant exactly like all the other McDonald’s in a systematized way. Do you think that if you open your restaurant, and had a bad first week, or even first month, you would even dream of walking away? Of course not. Yet people do it every day in network marketing, like it’s a throw away. Why do you think it is so easy to walk away from? The cost of entry is low – The price you pay if you walk away is practically nothing – you are only letting one person down usually, yourself, or maybe a spouse, and no premium is put on you quitting!!

What if you HAD TO STICK IT OUT NO MATTER WHAT?? How would you approach your business every day, if you knew you and your family’s LIFE DEPENDED ON IT? I am not kidding. Online marketing business is getting more and more expensive when you add up all the things you need to be successful. So you have some investment. That’s a very good thing!!

Many people in this industry, especially the part-timers (which are the majority of your downline) approach the business like a HOBBY. So guess how it pays them? Like a HOBBY!

True commitment IS the Secret to Success,

application of your time, and investment of your commitment will yield huge benefits. Add to that some tracking and accountability, which changes your daily method of operation from hobby-like, to business-like, and you now have the makings of some real income producing activities! Keep accurate records, and plan your time accordingly. For instance, if you were doing a hobby, you might spend two hours on the internet surfing, and pay no mind to what sites you were on and what you did. For your business, you might pre plan your time and those same two hours, you can record one hour blog syndications, and 30 minutes making videos, 30 minutes following up on friending strategies on Facebook etc. Then you are effectively using your time.

What about actual money making activities? Were any of the afore mentioned money making, or what we call revenue generating? A Money making activity is classified as any activity that progresses your prospect towards a decision for your primary business. There are many, many other activities that circle around and lead up to money making activities, such as social media, blogging, syndicating, advertising, webinars, trainings, video marketing etc. You can generate all the leads in the world, build all the relationships on facebook etc. You can have tons of friends but what are they worth to you if you are not translating them into sales?

So in closing, look down the road to December 16,2013. What will your business look like? What is your commitment level right now? How serious are you about your primary company and completing the goals you set? You can achieve your dreams with an unwavering commitment to yourself and the decision you make to overcome absolutely any obstacle that comes your way. If you are persistent and consistent day in and day out with the money making activities required, and you keep on going….YOU WILL WIN!!! There is no other possibility. Remember, when you ask “What is the Secret to Success…The only way you can fail is if you quit, so just tell yourself right now FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION…I WILL BE HERE IN ONE YEAR!
