You Fear the Sabre-tooth

6753809I read somewhere that the brain is wired since the stone age to think negatively so to protect us from the dangers that existed then.

Sabre-tooth as an example.

These days this negative thinking works overtime, stopping us from getting ahead in life.

Because we fear trying something new.

Fear of the Sabre-tooth.

This happens without us even realizing.

Without reading, preferably instructional books, then nothing will contradict that thinking.

You could even try swapping listening to the car radio station or your phone playlist for an audiobook.

The hours you spent while traveling, could be spent sharpening your mind against the Sabre-tooth.

Maybe that’s what you need.

Maybe that’s what need.

A different outlook.

That comes from developing a habit of reading or listening daily to go sh*t.

Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

A Business Like No Other…

new-mlm-companiesI think network marketing levels the playing field.

I could be wrong, it’s just my observation.

From my limited observation, businesses are handed over from generation to generation.

The only legacy I’ve seen being left the masses is poverty.

Some families are brought up with the option of aspiring to be business owner, while other families are sold the idea of becoming employees or self employed.

Asking the government to fix this in the form of land distribution, for instance, is as effective as the removal of our now current President from office.

But network marketing nullifies this dependent mindset.

The right one also offers you training and mentorship on how to succeed by also developing a business owner mindset.

But the best ones allow for your network marketing business to be passed on from generation to generation, just like these families I spoke of earlier.

With the right training to develop your skills, I believe anyone can succeed in what they put their minds to.

Multi level marketing included.

One of the hiccups I have with conventional business is the start up capital, amongst other uncertainties.

But obviously if you are committed enough and want it badly enough then you can find solutions around that.

I guess one chooses ones battles.

With me preferring minimum start up capital.

Minimal operational costs.

No overhead.picture2

With some part time but consistent work ethic, the results are predictable.

Results that can supplement my current salary.

Results that can be on par with my current salary.

Results that can eclipse my current salary.

A business like no other.

Look as a disclaimer, anything legit that allows you to make extra income is great.

Be it MLMs or another job or part time gig or strip joints.

I’m just talking about what I’m exposed to.

Do you due dilengece.

This working you way up to your salary month end only to start at zero the following month, is insane.

But most of us are doing it so it’s ok right?

I don’t think so.

The Real Reason Why She’s Kicking Your Ass

There’s a book called “The Slight Edge.”

Not sure if I’ve ever blogged about it but even if I did, it’s worth mentioning again.

A longtime friend of mine gave it to me to read once upon a time.

It spoke about how going that one extra mile, that slight edge, adds up eventually.

Next thing you know you’re way ahead of everyone else because your small efforts accumulated into something huge.

Were when once it seemed meaningless, but now the efforts are bearing fruits.

For the whole world to see.

Because of that slight edge…

Or something of that nature.

By Joel Esteen it’s actually Jeff Olsen I believe.

Will upload a photo of the book.

It makes my top 5 must reads.

Just thinking about it now because of this lady that’s kicking my ass in sales.

All because she was working on a craft in the beginning, day in day out.

It’s because of that Slight Edge that she’s now making it look so “easy.”

How A Turtle Can Run Circles Around You In Slow Motion And Still Leave You Breathless

turtle finding nemo Pictures, Images and Photos
My friend had a turtle tied to the fence with a rope, which acted like a leash, roped through its shell.

Once left untied, I was told, the turtle had a tendency of having a search party looking all over for him, thanks to the neighbours in the surrounding homes within their complex, which at times took the whole day before they found the little rascal.

In amazement I lifted the little bugger and gently placed him as near to the fence it was tied to as possible so to hopefully witness the speed it took to make its gateway, only to the extent of the rope it was tied to of course.

The jailbird eventually stuck its head out, maybe realizing that the coast might be clear for another prison break, and to my amazement, even though I shouldn’t have been – I mean it WAS a turtle – the little guy began taking little, turtle steps forward.

Slow, small turtle steps forward, one after another.

And here was a guy I was told that once I untie him and ignore him for less than 5 minutes, would do a Houdini on me.

But on taking a closer look, you could swear that each and every one of his steps forward were deliberate. As small as they might seem to the naked eye, this guy had the law of compounding effect on his side.

A universal law Jeff Olson brought to my attention in a book a friend borrowed me called “The Slight Edge.”

You might have heard of it?

In any case, Jeff made an example of this law of compounding effect by telling a story about two sons who where asked to choose one of two forms of inheritance.

Whether they wanted to receive 1 million dollars immediate cash over 1 cent every day that doubles every day (as in 1c becomes 2c which then becomes 4c and then 8c, etc)?

The one son chose the one million, which after 30 days amounted to half a million due to the economy, staff that needed to be paid, bad debts, loans, etc.

But the son that choice the 1 cent inheritance was worth over ten million dollars ($10,737,418.24c to be precise) on day 30.

Thanks to this Universal law of compounding effect.

Activating this law of compounding effect by actively being involved in day to day activities that bring you closer and closer to your goal, is a discipline that is easy to do, and easy not to do.

Keeping in mind that once you brake the chain of your daily compounding actions you lose its power, as in skipping a day makes success long in coming to you.

Some of the daily disciplines that Jeff Olsen writes about in “The Slight Edge” include:

» reading 20 pages a day from a self help book – an empowering book that provides you with applicable principles that you can begin using today to change your life for the better;

» listening to 15 minutes of a self empowering audio every day and going to a self improvement seminar or workshop every other month.

Yes, he was inspired by the great American motivational speaker and business man Jim Rohn who also preaches these kind of disciplines in his teachings & articles, articles I receive regularly via emails from subscribing for free on this site www.JimRohn.com by the way.

Jeff delivers this all the above disciplines so to change your Philosophy – See for more http://www.topachievement.com/slightedge.html – of life.

Which, according to his multi millionaire organizations he built and the people he does workshops with & his personal experience, determines the results of how our life turns out.

Through “The Slight Edge” Jeff Olson shifted something inside of me that invites me to approach for success with just small, disciplined, persistent, consistent actions towards my goal every day. Hence this article of appreciation for his work and positive, empowering influence on me.

My success will only “easily” come to me through the use of deliberate, planned steps I take daily towards it. Through what the author of the book “The Slight Edge” calls daily disciplines and not errors in judgment repeated over time that will sabotage my success.

This book should make up part of your personal development library I am recommend you buy yourself a copy on either (affiliate recommendation) Amazon.com or attract it in one of your local bookstores.

Thank you.

I love you.
