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.

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.

What’s In It For You?

I’ve been telemarketing for the past 9 months.

Wow.

Was shocked to even realized how long I’ve been here.

Guess time passes you by when you get “caught up” in waking up at 4:30am only to get home at around 8:30pm.

Sales driven environment, I’ve seemed to have lost the plot.

Especially when it comes to my self development education.

Applied knowledge is power.

And I’ve just been going through the emotion of late.

Just grateful to have this blog.

Writing centers me.

My true passion…

But why sales then?

Because it’s outside my comfort zone.

Or at least it was.

For an emotional guy like myself, I feel there’s no better way to manage my emotions than doing sales.

People don’t like to be sold to really.

But if you get the hang of the WIIFM paradigm then you should be good.

W – what’s

I – in

I – it

F – for

M – me

Come I get back to it then.

Lunch break almost over.

I love you.

Thank you.

The More Prepared You Are the More Attractive You Look to the Things You Want to Achieve

How prepared are you for success?

Have you made space for your new car?

Have you bought the champagne to celebrate the achievement you are attracting?

Sometimes you need to act first only to have your goals to catch up with you later.

As in you would be allowing in your goals at a faster rate if you start right now paving the way for their arrival.

You need to be attractive to your goals by being an attractive person.

At a vibrational (emotional) sense of the word…but then again looking good never hurt nobody.

For example:

You out of a job?

Shine your shoes.

Press your clothes.

And set the alarm for you to get up the following morning.

But don’t you dare get it twisted.

Sitting on your hands doing nothing and expecting the world to come knocking on your door is a fool’s dream.

You & I live in a world of cause and effect.

You need to take new actions for you to get new results.

So update your resumé.

Look out for and apply to places that are of interest to you.

Send your resumé out to prospective companies.

You need to GO OUT and attend the interviews.

Take massive action.

Now you look VERY attractive to your job seeking goals.

A principle that you can use in any other goal you had in mind.

So be excited about being in new situations with new people and new environments as you find pleasure and positive aspects with going outside your comfort zone.

Success lies at the end of your comfort zone.

Thank you.

I love you.

“When You Fall, Make Sure You Fall On Your Back. Because If You Can Look Up You Can Get Up!”

Image

“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

I think everyone goes through struggle at one point or another.

Most people go out every day with a lot of baggage weighing them down.

Resting and pressing against their chest.

With how the world is structured it seems almost normal to see only negative things all around you.

But what you must realize is this is just one reality.

It is important for you to get a breather and to explore other possible realities.

“What you focus on grows bigger.”

This is one of the reasons why I write on this blog here:

To suggest other possible realities.

Because at the end of the day YOU have the power to control what you are exposed to on a daily basis.

You might even have in your head is this idea of how you will experience more pain if you made changes in your environment than if you left things as they are.

But ultimately you hold the power.

So see this update as a reminder of this truth.

It does not matter what other people say.

Their truth can never be YOUR truth.

In the words of Les Brown:

“Never let someone else’s opinion of you be your reality.” 

I love you.

Thank you.

PS: On the subject of experiencing different realities I’ve always suggested you focus on the “what” and the “how” will show itself.

Here is an expert teacher who can show you the “how.”

 

I Wondered, “What Else Makes Successful People So Successful?” And It Came To Me, They Are Successful Because They Are Courageous

“Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be” – George Sheehan

There is a certain level of guts that one must have to set goal for herself, especially when she is surrounded by family & friends that are not accustomed to goal setting.

There was a time when I thought all I had to do was set goals for myself and that’s all I had to do to become successful.

i.e. I used to just think about what I wanted to achieve and just leave it at that. I was led to believe that this was not goal setting, only wishful thinking.

I’ve come across people who don’t have constructive goals in their lives. The aim at nothing, and they achieve nothing all the time, and my way of “achieving” success was no better.

As it turns out not only do I need to have goals of what I would want or become or do in my life but I need to develop the plans of successfully achieving these goals that I wanted.

That takes another calling up of those same guts I brought to the par the time I decided to want to achieve major goals that will affect my life and those of my family in a positive way.

It takes courage to have goals.

It takes courage to even think about writing out a plan on how to reach these goals.

But hold on to your hats folks ’cause that’s not all, we need to woman up YET again, and call up this long distance friend by the name of Courage – who I would like to name as my 13th Disciple – for another round.

Because now that (1) we have goals, now that (2) we have plans of what we believe needs to happen for us to achieve these goals, we need to put the hammer to the nail and (3) take action on the plans we have setup for ourselves, and we do this so that we can reach the reason for all this effort (what Earl Nightingale calls “paying the price”), our goals.


So not only do I have to have the courage to even think about goals I want to achieve but I have to make plans for their realisation? And not only that, but I now I have to take action on the plans I have conjured up in order for me to reach my goals?

So much courage for someone like me how was conditioned to confirm and accept my fears as the master to which I was a slave to, is all too much too ask, I once thought.

That was all good and well until there was this rage inside of me that consumed me into taking action.

The anger that motivated me into action.

I used to cower in a little corner every time I feared to do something about my circumstances, to change them to the way I saw fit.

I saw that I can’t change my circumstance so I changed ME first. And in that change I felt I needed to leave my undesired circumstance so to become something greater.

And every time I took that first step towards change fear rocks up and had me curling up like a pathetic conformist with an entitlement mentality, depending on a system that won’t think twice of coughing me out all in the name of profit.

But as I continued reading self development books and listening to self help audios, watching motivational videos on YouTube and attending seminars that spoke about vehicles I can use to achieve “financial freedom”, and over time I came to a point where a part of me just snapped.

I lost it and said to hell with it. I stood up from that corner, with my body shaking in absolute fury, I pointed my finger at fear and said, “TO HELL WITH YOU!”

And with that I took the courage I have always had and did the unthinkable. And freed myself from, as it turns out, a fear that a lot of people I was associated with were enslaved by.

I broke through my chains and I was surprised at how is it was.

It reminded me of that David and Goliath story of how just one swing took out the fear that every one else was making such a fuss about.

How just that one swing was able to rebuke the illusion of fear out of my sight.

But I have to admit it took some courage from my part.

Little courage, small courage, it’s a semantics. Mountain or ant hill it’s all in how you look at it.

Take action.

That’s all you need to do to successfully eliminate your fears. Take action. Do the thing that you fear and you will become a stronger person as you make your way towards your heart’s desire, as you slice your way through the Goliaths of your life.

Take that swing towards Goliath and liberate yourself from yourself.

But don’t be surprised by how many of them pop up to intimidate you when faced with another situation that stirs you to action.

It’s those disciplined swings you need to take ever so constantly that might take you off your game for a moment but always remember your sling, who knows, you might get so good at it that they would start leaving you alone.
