I Can’t Have Success, My Sponsor Lives Too Far Away. – Post 357

How about another problem?

Tom “big al” Schreiter can teach you how to build a great business just by knowing what to say and do..here is another example of his knowledge, notice NO EGO, NO AGENDA…..

Let’s say that my sponsor lives too far away. I can’t become successful because my sponsor doesn’t come to help me. How are we going to move my thinking from distributor thinking to leadership thinking?

Here’s a story you could tell me.

You: Keith, I know you think that you can’t become successful because I live too far away. I can’t help you do local meetings and I can’t come to Houston to help you do two-on-one presentations.

However, let’s imagine that you’re taking a flight home to Houston, Texas. There is another passenger sitting next to you on the airplane. Your casual conversation goes like this:

Keith: “Hey, what do you do for a living?”
Passenger: “I am the president of a local entrepreneurs’ club. We have 10,000 members and they’re all entrepreneurs. We meet in the evenings because we all have regular jobs, but our club is looking for a part-time business to get into.”

Keith: “Oh really? What kind of business?”
Passenger: “Well, we don’t want to have stores because that would be boring. We’d be tied down to one location. We’re outgoing people and we’re interested in sales and marketing. We enjoy meeting, networking, and working with other people. We don’t have a lot of money to invest – maybe only a couple thousand dollars each.”

“But we’re willing to work as hard as we can to build successful businesses. But you know what? I haven’t been able to find any part-time business for our members yet. And if I don’t find something pretty soon, they’re going to throw me out of office. I’m pretty worried.”

So what is Keith thinking? He’s thinking, ‘Oh, man, I’ve hit the mother lode! My business opportunity is going to be perfect for them. She’s going to thank me.’
And then Keith asks:”Oh, by the way, where do you live?”
Passenger: “I live in Miami.”

And now Keith’s going to throw up his hands in despair and say: “Oh no! That’s too bad. I could never sponsor you because I wouldn’t be local.”

At that point, I change my thinking. I understand that if I keep believing that the sponsor must live locally, I’d pass by many great opportunities. In fact, if I keep that distributor thinking, that would mean that I could never sponsor someone more than ten miles away from my house!

After you tell me that story, will my thinking move from distributor thinking to leadership thinking?

Maybe not all the way, but I’m getting closer, right?

Financial Slavery – Post 356

This story sound familiar: Dad comes home, slams the door, shouts at the dog, kicks the cat, and almost kills the canary. The children hide under the bed, while his wife carefully placed a bowl of soup on the table.

“It looks like Dad had a bad day,” whispered one of the little brothers hiding outside the line of fire.

Lately, it seemed that every day was bad for Dad.

Dad was experiencing the stress of living in financial slavery.

It wasn’t that dad was poor or didn’t earn enough money.

Financial slavery occurs when money and finances occupy the priority place in our lives.

Financial slavery occurs when what we owe dictates the lives we live.

Financial slavery occurs when what we owe dictates the jobs we hold.

Do you find yourself with:

  • Excessive Concern about Finances
    People in financial slavery are under such economic stress that they can’t get their finances out of their heads. At home, they worry about finances; at work, they think about their bills; driving the car, they calculate their bank account; eating dinner, they plan how they will make their payments. It makes them a giant bag of nerves.
  • Anger, Wrath, and Bad MoodsWith financial pressure bothering them all time, they’re often in a bad mood. They shout, they’re nervous, they get angry for no reason, and people generally prefer to avoid them.

Is this you?

Did you know the system is set up to keep you in fincial slavery?

The deck is stacked against you, but the good news is
You Don’t Have to Play Their Games,
there is a better way.

Afraid your retirement nest egg won’t last long? – Post 353

You’re not alone.

We once thought of retirement as a time to relax, play golf and maybe travel — to finally have a little fun. For some, that will still be the case.

For the vast majority of others, the thought of retirement brings anxiety. They’re worried that they’ll run out of money.

In a recent survey by the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, 44% of workers of all ages cited having insufficient finances as their biggest fear.

And a quarter of middle-class Americans, according to a Wells Fargo Middle Class Retirement survey, said they “get depressed” thinking about their finances during retirement. Forty-eight percent of those who have not retired were not confident that they will have saved enough to live “the lifestyle they want” in retirement.

I don’t know that there is anyone who doesn’t have that fear. That is people’s biggest anxiety. That fear comes mostly from people realizing that they are not adding enough to their savings but will soon have to withdraw. The anxiety is that they will have to have this last themselves for the rest of their life. It is the overwhelming fear among baby boomers.

Sometimes, the uncertainties of how long someone is going to live can be overwhelming. Adding to that the thought of health-care costs, can create a sense of hopelessness.

‘Will I have enough money?’

The best way to feel better about retirement is to develop a plan.  Do not be a bystander to your own retirement future. Your chances of not running out of money greatly increases if you develop a monthly, residual income that comes in month in, month out.

The estate of Michael Jackson brought in 145 million in 2012. Elvis Presley was second on the list with $55 million, while Bob Marley took third with $17 million.

I’m not saying you or I will have that type of income but it illustrates what a residual income can do. An income that comes in regardless of whether you work that month or not.

Did you know that if you had a monthly residual income of just $5,000 per month coming in that is the equivalent to an extra $1,000,000 in your retirement fund?

Would an extra $5,000 per month on top of what you already have in your retirement savings give you more peace of mind?

Did you know that if you are very serious and follow an established plan of action, it is much easier to create a $5,000 per month residual income than it is to save another $1,000,000 before you retire?

Folks, I don’t have that many more years until I hit that golden age, worse yet, after two years of unemployment I am way behind on my nest egg goals. When I was introduced to this concept by someone that I highly respect. Someone that has been very successful financially in their lifetime, to the tune of multiple seven figure income, I was stunned. In fact that set me on a 4 year search for the best vehicle and best system to reach that goal. Once I found the right vehicle I spent another
year learning, seeking out and learning from the best in the industry and now I would like to share with you what I learned.

For more information visit my website, http://AIMHighForSuccess.com. There you will find a 20 minute video where I introduce this concept. Then I will introduce you to a very successful couple that I know that will give you the details. Once they complete their presentation you will have the opportunity to reach out to me so I can speak with you one on one more about how I can help you reach your financial goals.

 

Reaching Your Highest Potential – Post 348

We started the other day talking about the law of attraction. Today I want to continue with that theme and talk a little bit about reaching your highest potential.

We all have these grand dreams of what we want our lives to be. We know that we can achieve whatever it is that we want. So why is it that most of us will never achieve our highest potential?

It’s because we allow the doubts, the fears, and the discouraging things people have said to us convince us to settle where we are. Those negative voices inside us speak to us the loudest.

The truth is that we were all created to succeed. We were all created to achieve greatness; to accomplish our goals; to leave a mark on this generation. The key is to set that greatness free; to overcome all the negative thoughts and become all that we can be.

No matter where you are or what challenges you are facing you have what it takes to win. You are talented enough. You are smart enough. You are experienced enough. You have the right personality, the right looks, the right race, sex or nationality. You are fully equipped to become all you can. You are the right man or woman for the challenge.

You may not be reaching your highest potential, not because you don’t have the faith, the talent, or the determination but because you are not keeping the right things in front of you.

Let me tell you a story about a guy that dreamed of being an actor someday. As he was growing up his family was so poor that at one point they were homeless. As he got older he kept on auditioning and trying out for different parts but he just wasn’t getting any offers. He wasn’t getting the big parts he wanted. He was broke and discouraged so he drove his beat up old car to the top of a hill overlooking the city and did something unusual. He wrote himself a big check for 10 million dollars for “Acting Services Rendered”. He put that check in his wallet and kept it there. When things would get tough he would pull that check out and look at it to remind himself of his dream. A dozen years later he finally had the breakthrough that he dreamt about. You know him today because of wild success. That actor was Jim Carey.

The point is that we tend to gravitate toward that which we think about most. Think about this. No matter what social – economic background you come from you can find examples of people that have succeeded. You can find people from the worst backgrounds, the worst situations growing up that not only succeeded but had wild success. I can think of people like Les Brown, Opra Winfrey, Dr Ben Carson. And you can find people that had it all, that were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and went on to become absolute failures. I won’t name those but we can all think of people that descend to failure like that.

Ever ponder what the difference was between those failures and success?

Studies tell us that we move toward what we consistently see. So to reach the highest potential for success we must keep something in front of us, even if it symbolic like Jim Carey’s check, to remind us of what we believe we can achieve.

When we don’t have anything that reminds us of what we are dreaming of, we get stuck and lose our passion. Proverbs says “Where there is no vision, the people parish,” The naysayers come along on and nick away at our dream, our enthusiasm until one day we find ourselves stuck in a rut. We’ve forgotten what it was that we wanted and start shrinking our dreams down to fit in with our current circumstances. The successful people always have that dream, that goal in front of them so they can push the naysayers aside and push forward toward their goals.

James Allen said “Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. James Mark Baldwin said, “Fires can’t be made with embers, not can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men Enthusiasm in our daily work lightens effort and turns even labor into pleasant tasks.”

I want you to think about what it is that you can put in front of you to keep you on track. What you can do throughout that day to remind yourselves of your destination. Keep your vision in front of you. All over your house, your office, your car, you should have pictures that inspire you. Scripture verses that encourage you. Mementoes that strengthen your faith. Every time you see that reminder of your dream say under your breath, Thank you Lord for bringing my dreams to pass. Thank you that I will become everything that you created me to be. Every time something comes along and try’s to chip away at your enthusiasm look at that reminder and tell yourself that you will achieve whatever it is that you set out to achieve.

When did the Brainwashing Begin – Blog 344

When you ask someone, “so, what would you do if you had to make an extra $500 this week?” the responses are amazing.

I’d BORROW it, STEAL it, put it on a CREDIT CARD, get a LOAN, ask a RELATIVE and so on. Rarely does anyone have an answer other than, “I’ll just work more hours or get another part time job.”

In the 1930’s we started this rage called the hourly wage. And it stuck!! IT IS THE ONLY WAY ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE MONEY!

One of the greatest advantages of network marketing is that it levels the playing field with the wealthy people of the world. We don’t just rely on trading TIME for MONEY. Not just hours for money.

Network Marketing

 

Introducing people to a way to actually LEVERAGE their time can at times SHOCK people. “it’s too good to be true…if it was that easy everyone would do it…” and so on.
There are more ways to make money and get wealthy than just trading TIME for DOLLARS! It’s called network marketing. The ultimate enforcer when it comes to the average person getting wealthy.
Why not work 5 to 10 hours and get paid like you worked 40 hours at your job?
Why not work 5 to 10 hours and get paid like you worked 150 hours at your job?
And yes, why not work 5 to 10 hours a WEEK and get paid like you worked 300 hours at your job?
Leveraging your time is much better than the brainwashing concept of the hourly wage.
