The 9 Rules of Success – Post 360

by Keith Halls

In 2003, after 9 months of failing and setbacks as a Distributor, Keith was reaching the end of his limit. Things got lots worse when his wife left him for another. At the moment of giving up, when he thought that life was just too hard, he had two dreams. Two dreams that were so powerful, that he woke up and felt guided to write out a plan of success for himself as well as everyone in this world. He called them The 9 RULES for Success and began sharing them with his downline and others. His check grew from $200-300 a month to over $100,000 a month within a year. More importantly to him, the checks of his downline grew too.

The 9 RULES of Success are for everyone. They have helped people from all walks of life. From unemployed single moms with children to Wall Street billionaires, Keith’s kind and gentle manner have made him the most sought after person in the Industry.

The 9 RULES of Success:

1) Dream the Dream
The first RULE shows how each of us must unlock the potential that lives deep within us. Most people have quit dreaming and quit believing that dreams can come true. By hard work, dedication, and a firm conviction to never quit, many of your dreams can become a reality. The correct dream’s within your heart can lead you to fulfill your destiny .

2) Believe
The second RULE shows how each of us must develop a strong belief system. By learning how to believe in your Company, the Products, the Compensation Plan and of upmost importance, in Yourself you become a far more dedicated and motivated person. Your results will improve and others will seek your advice. Keith’s “20 Minute a Day Belief System” has helped many achieve the belief system they are looking for.

3) Treat Your Business as a Business
The third RULE shows how each of must learn to treat your new Distributorship as a business. One of the greatest advantages of Network Marketing is the ease of entrance. However, it is also one of the greatest disadvantages. People leave before they give MLM a chance. Treat your new business as if your economic life depended upon it. Learn how to seek and attract new business customers. Learn the importance of abiding by a budget. Become the CEO of yourself and then allow yourself to succeed.

4) Never Quit
The fourth RULE teaches every person the importance of not quitting. Quitting can become a habit, a very bad habit that is difficult to break. Each person will face obstacles and setbacks. Each person will have discouraging days, weeks and months. This RULE will show you how to make roadblocks become stepping stones upon your path to success; how to turn difficult situations into positive results. This RULE helps give you the strength to overcome the hardest times and stay on your path.

5) Work, Talk and Act From the Heart.
The fifth RULE shows how working from your heart can change your life and benefit others at the same time. The language of the heart knows no boundaries and can touch from all cultures and from all walks of life. Keith has spoken in front of thousands of people from all over the world and they feel his sincerity and understand his message. Everyone can enhance their success and happiness by learning and applying this RULE.

6) Trust
The sixth RULE shows you the importance of earning the trust of others. It teaches why you should be trustworthy. Those who will develop the trust between themselves and others will find peace and obtain happiness. Trust is the basis of all relationships and the foundation of all societies. Understanding this RULE can create greater trust between Distributors, which will lead one to a wealth of success.

7) Ask for Help
The seventh RULE teaches you the importance of asking for help. When we were young, we asked our parents and our teachers for help. They would usually point us in the right direction and we were able to grow and mature. However, the older we became, the less and less we asked others for help. Pride and ego usually keeps us from reaching out to others. This “secret” has been used by wise men and women throughout the ages, as they realized that through the help of others, happiness and success can be achieved.

8) Be Nice, Be Kind and Help Others
The eighth RULE is one of the most widely known and yet least applied RULES of many in our world. All too often, people seek to rise to the top by taking advantage of others. Those who achieve success by treating others poorly, will find their wealth evaporate and only loneliness as their companion. Those reach out and help others, those who are kind to others, will find the true meaning of success. They will be admired and loved by all. This RULE is essential in all people.

9) Massive Action Brings Results
The ninth RULE is the final one. It is the RULE that binds all nine together. Only by massive action, by working effectively and efficiently, of going the extra mile, will one find results. One must be willing to stretch and grow, both in wisdom and in time spent. The drive to succeed is only completed through massive action.

These Nine RULES of Success, when learned and applied will help everyone, regardless of age or status, of wealth or poverty, achieve the success they are seeking. Each one must be followed. If one casts one RULE aside, they only do so at the peril of their future.

Equipped with all Nine RULES, everyone will become a force. A force of good and a force so powerful, that one’s dreams and goals will become a reality.

3 Things You Should Do To Make Your Mornings More Productive, And The One Fatal Thing You Shouldn’t – Post 359

3 Things You Should Do To Make Your Mornings More Productive, And The One Fatal Thing You Shouldn’t.

by Mel Robbins

Most adults admit to the defeating habit of hitting the snooze alarm every morning.

 
Experts have been debating the pros and cons of the habit for years, weighing both short- and long-term effects on the body and mind. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal, “Why You Actually Should Hit The Snooze Button,” suggests an extra nine minutes of sleep can help certain types of people to “gently awaken the mind.” I don’t buy it, and never will.

I’m just not a snooze alarm kinda gal. I prefer to rip the bandage off and push myself out of bed as soon as I hear the alarm.

Getting out of a warm bed is never fun, and it certainly doesn’t become any easier after you’ve hit the snooze button several times. The truth is it’s guilt that finally forces you from the sheets, yet you still don’t want to have your feet hit the floor and seize the day.

So, the piece got me thinking …

The snooze alarm might make you late or kill your plans to exercise, but it doesn’t ruin your day. There’s something else that you probably do (right before you push yourself out of bed) that is not only your worst habit, but completely horrendous for your well-being, happiness and success.

Think back to this morning: What’s the first thing you did when you woke up?
Brush your teeth? Nope. Make coffee? Guess again.
 
You reached for your phone.
 
The question is: Why? You aren’t even vertical yet. You haven’t even started the day and there you are, cellphone in hand like the world won’t start turning until you get lost in the screen.
 
Is there some text that’s so important you must see it immediately? No. If there were a true emergency, you’d get a call. Is there an e-mail you need to send before you wipe the sleep from your eyes? Of course not, but you open your inbox anyway.
 
You aren’t alone.
 
Recent studies suggest almost 83% of millennials sleep with their phones, and the Pew Research Center study found that 65% of all adults sleep with their phone on or right next to their bed (and that study was three years ago, so likely the number has grown).
 
So, why is reaching for the phone so detrimental?
 
Simple. There’s nothing in your inbox that will help you take control of your day or serve your goals.
 
What are e-mails anyway? E-mails are everyone else’s junk: things to do, things to buy, things to add to your to-do list, meetings to attend, places to be, reminders of deadlines. They amount to a long list of stuff that “other” people want you to pay attention to.
 
By checking your texts or e-mails first thing, you just let someone else set your priorities before you’ve had breakfast.
 
How you start your day sets the tone for your day, and by reaching for your phone you surrender control to others — and your well-being, success and happiness takes a hit. Those e-mails seek your time, attention, help and brain space. It’s no wonder you start your day feeling overwhelmed, sensing pressure and being in a reactive mode rather than a proactive mode.

I no longer sleep next to my phone. It’s in the kitchen, close enough for me to hear the alarm and far enough away so that by the time I reach the kitchen, I’m not going back to bed. I turn off the alarm, and don’t pick up the phone again until I’ve done a few other things to put myself in control and my priorities first.

If your phone doesn’t receive e-mails, you aren’t off the hook. I guarantee you either fire up the computer or tablet as soon as you leave your bedroom or as soon as you arrive at work. That means you check your inbox before you even get organized. Do not ever do that again. Before you read about a “25% off sale at Zappos,” before a reminder alerts you that a PowerPoint is due, before a colleague turns you into her errand boy, take control of your day.

Here are three ways you can take back your mornings and live your most productive and happy life: 

coffeeinmorning

To Do List

  • Don’t check e-mail until you’ve had a chance to figure out your top three priorities for the day and perhaps, had a cup of coffee or tea with a clear mind.
  • Do a “brain dump” for five minutes by listing all projects, to-dos, reminders and priorities on a piece of paper. Then, highlight the top three things on the list to deal with today, things that matter most to you.
  • Forget about everything else you wrote down. This starts your day on the right footing. Next — still without visiting that inbox — open your calendar (I use an 8×11 size week-at-a-glance calendar) and find a 30-minute block in your day when you can focus on your top three things, uninterrupted.

 

beawesomeIt doesn’t matter when that block happens. It can be the first 30 minutes at work, waiting in the car for your child’s soccer practice to end, or after you watch a ball game tonight. Find the time and schedule it.

By not reaching for the phone and figuring out your three big priorities for the day, you’ve just taken control of your day and put your priorities first. You may now open your inbox.

Inspirational Leadership – Post 357

This is an incredible speech that I came across recently on TEDx by Simon Sinek. He describes a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle and the question “Why?” He brilliantly uses examples that include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers to as illustrations of his points. Just had to share this with everyone and hope you enjoy it.

When you have a dream, nothing gets in your way – Post 356

When you don’t have a dream, everything gets in your way.

I recently heard a great story that illustrates why some people are doomed for failure.

Two men were standing in the buffet line on a cruise ship talking. This was their conversation:

cruise.aimhighforsuccess.com

Man #1: I can’t believe how quiet and peaceful it is today. It’s beautiful, just beautiful.
Man #2: Nothing is happening on this cruise. It’s boring. What a waste of time.

Man #1: Hey look! There are three different types of shrimp for appetizers.
Man #2: The food on this cruise isn’t nearly as good as my last vacation. I don’t know how they could serve this stuff.

Man #1: I think I’ll take three desserts with me on this trip in the buffet line.
Man #2: My room steward is rude and I don’t like the way he cleans up my room. And my shower water is too hot.

Man #1: I’m looking forward to the Las Vegas show tonight. Want to come with me? We can get front row seats if we go 15 minutes early.
Man #2: No way! The music is too loud and all that singing and dancing . . . I could watch that on television if I was interested.

Man #1: Let’s get some ice cream. It’s all you can eat!
Man #2: That stuff just makes you fat. I’ve tasted better ice cream at my local delicatessen.

Man #1: I just love cruising. It’s a great way to get away and relax.
Man #2: I’m homesick already. It’s boring. The bartender doesn’t smile at me. The sun is too hot. There are too many activities. Everyone is running around with an irritating smile on his face. You can’t get a decent newspaper and I don’t like the free movies they’re showing tonight. My travel agent charged me too much. The captain isn’t going where I want to go. The swimming pools make me wet . . .

I think you have the idea.

One man decided to be happy and enjoy the cruise. His “friend” decided to be unhappy.

You could solve every problem for Man #2, but he would find new problems so that he could remain unhappy.

Sound familiar?

As Tom Paredes says: “When you have a dream, nothing gets in your way. When you don’t have a dream, everything gets in your way.”

Many network marketing leaders spend hours, days, and even weeks trying to solve and eliminate problems and challenges for their distributors.

However, no matter how much they clear the road for success, a negative-minded distributor will still find yet another obstacle to throw in his way.

The leader’s efforts are wasted. The leader can’t win. And the leader must bite his lip, stand by the sidelines and watch his negative-minded distributor fail. That’s why many potential superstars fail. Their dreams are smaller than the obstacles they encounter.

This also explains those “rags-to-riches” stories. These “success stories” didn’t allow any obstacle to get in their way. Their dreams were far larger than the obstacles they encountered.

The lesson?

Your future leaders need a dream. If they don’t have a dream, you’ll be wasting your time helping them overcome the daily obstacles of business. Your assistance will always be needed.

Instead of trying to fix obstacles, help your future leaders create a dream.

Lesson 8: How to Close. – Post 355

Over the past few posts we have been discussing “How to Give a One-Minute presentation” as presented by Tom “Big Al” Schreiter. So far you’ve learned the following:

    • Lesson #1 “Why prospects won’t give you an appointment.” 

 

  • Lesson #2: “How to get an appointment with almost 100% of the prospects you talk to.”

 

 

  • Lesson #3: “How to get your presentation down to one minute.” 

 

 

  • Lesson #4: “Question #1: What kind of business are you in?”

 

 

  • Lesson #5: “Question #2: How much money can I make?” 

 

 

  • Lesson #6: “Coffee Shop Conversation”
  • Lesson #7: “So exactly what do I have to do to earn this money?” 

 

 

Today, we will complete the series with Lesson #7: How to close.
The “One-Minute Presentation sounds great, but how do I close?”

I like to use one of these three closes.

    • “Well, what do you think?”

 

  • “And that’s it.”

 

 

  • “And the rest is up to you.”

 

 

There is no need for high-pressure.

You have simply stated the facts in your one-minute presentation, and now the next step is up to the prospect.

And there is no rejection either. You simply stated the facts as if you were describing a good movie. Nothing bad happens if your friend doesn’t go the movie you like, and nothing bad happens here if your business just isn’t for this prospect.

Let’s put it all together.

Let me give you a one-minute presentation that is outside of your industry. This way you can see the one-minute presentation through the eyes of a prospect.

Ready?

“We are in the gangster business. You can earn an extra $100,000 a year and all you have to do is shoot people. Well, what do you think?”

That was quick, wasn’t it?

Did you have the answers to your three basic questions:

    1. “What kind of business you are in?”

 

  • “How much money can I earn?” 

 

 

  • “Exactly what do I have to do to earn that money?” 

 

 

Because you received the answers to these three questions, you could probably make an immediate decision.

You could answer:

    • “Yes, my cousin does this already. So how do I join?” 

 

  • “No, it’s not for me.” 

 

 

  • “I have a question. Do I have to use a gun? Or could I use a knife instead?”

 

 

Remember, a really bad one-minute presentation is preferred by prospects over a perfectly scripted two-hour presentation.

What do most prospects think after hearing a one-minute presentation?

They think, “Hey, I can do this. And I won’t sound like a salesman, I don’t have to memorize a bunch of stuff, yeah, I can do this.”

Lesson 7: Questions Your Prospect Really Want to Know. – Post 354

Over the past few posts we have been discussing “How to Give a One-Minute presentation” as presented by Tom “Big Al” Schreiter. Today we are going to cover Lesson 6, the third question that the prospect really wants to know, 

“So exactly what do I have to do to earn this money?”

This is the most important question, and most networkers don’t answer this question. They conveniently skip over this question and now the prospect has to go home and figure it out for himself.

Ouch.
This is one huge reason prospects say, “I have to think it over.”
We didn’t answer this question in our presentation, so how could we possibly expect them to make a decision?
Or we say something really lame such as:
    • “It’s a sharing and caring business.”

 

  • “Just talk to people.”

 

 

Ouch. Ouch.

We must describe exactly what the prospect has to do to earn that money. Then our prospect can make an immediate decision.

I don’t mean this!

I don’t mean to describe the compensation plan complete with bonus volume, staged levels of achievement, etc.

The prospect simply wants to know approximately what kind of activity will be needed to earn the money you quoted him.

You don’t have to be 100% accurate, read the policies and procedures, describe the minimum 60-day volume required to earn the Star Trek Commander bonus, explain the legal definitions of each term used, etc. All you have to do is tell the prospect approximately what he would have to do to earn the money you quoted.

Want some examples?

If you quoted your prospect an extra $300 a month, you could describe his activity as this:

    • “All you have to do is: every day pass out a sample of our super moisturizing cream and a DVD describing how to use it, and at the end of about three months, you will have enough people using the super moisturizing cream that you would earn an extra $300 a month.” 

 

  • “All you have to do is: between you, and everybody you talk to, and everybody they talk to forever and ever . . . find about 25 families who want to drink the juice so that they wake up in the morning feeling great. And then you would earn an extra $300 a month.” 

 

 

  • “All you have to do is find three families every month who want to lower their bill payments and start having some free extra money to spend as they like. And then you would earn an extra $300 a month.” See the difference?

 

 
Now your prospect knows exactly what he has to do to earn that extra $300 a month.

This is being polite as we are answering the question the prospect wants to know.

Sounds good, but how do I close?

Hang on! I will be back to you in my next post with three of my best closes. These closes are short, low-pressure, and easy on your prospects. They will love it.

So stand by for lesson #7 where we will learn how to close in a comfortable, but effective way.
