So you say you want opportunity. Let me describe it for you. Opportunity is a coin with two faces. On one side is opportunity equal to its face value. On the other side of that same coin are obstacles equal to the face value of the same coin. So, if I have a great opportunity what will be inherent in that great opportunity – a few obstacles – or many? If you’re dreaming lofty dreams what must you be prepared to include? There will be many obstacles for you to overcome. There’s never been a worthy victory without a struggle.

What does this mean? The truth is you’re not going to accomplish big things without first working on you. You’re the one that needs to be worked on. The pursuer of opportunity is you. The better you get, the better your efforts will produce desirable results. Can you see the indisputable connection here? The truth is, and always has been, that you are the one responsible for the outcome. That being said, a truth revealing question follows: “Are you striving daily for more self-competency?” As you grow, your accomplishments will equally grow. Are you developing your skills or are you like most, simply wishing for things to get better and doing little or nothing to self-improve? If you want to succeed, you must separate your thinking, attitudes and behavior from the masses of ideal dreamers: always “intending” but mostly “pretending.”

Insight:
Each of us has the power of choice and each choice takes a step toward some future outcome. There is no escaping this truth. Your life, as it exists today, is a manifestation of accumulated thoughts, emotions, attitudes, and the commitments made by you over time.
For example, if learning was unimportant to you, the relationship to where you are economically is a result of that choice. If you complain about your circumstances, or blame others for it, notice the quality of your life as a consequence. If you lack self-motivation, notice the many good things that you and your family will never enjoy. As the great price fighter, Joe Louis once said, “You can run, but you cannot hide.” To which I add, “You can avoid the truth, but never its justice.” What decisions will you make about your business?

Do you still think a business is for you?

You go to a business networking event. Everyone pushes their business card in your hand, gives their prepared sales pitch, and rush off to the next victim.

You go to a business networking event. Everyone pushes their business card in your hand, gives their prepared sales pitch, and rush off to the next victim.

Everyone leaves with a stack of business cards of people they will never call. Ouch.

Here is a famous quote by Frederick Collins that can instantly make you a natural attraction at networking events:
“There are two types of people – those who come into a room and say, “Well, here I am,” and those who come in and say, “Ah, there you are.”
And that is the difference between a professional networker and a cheesy, pushy salesman at networking events.

Try it.

It is better to have a good working relationship with just a few people, rather than a handful of business cards from people you tried to sell.

How to go from Employee to Entrepreneur

How To Go From Employee to Entrepreneur! March 2012
Dear Robert,

In the last article, we discussed the condition of most people who work a job i.e., the “employee”. So lets review and move on.

The “employee” gets a weekly paycheck and all too often a mental and emotional addiction to the implied, but certainly not guaranteed, financial security offered by the job. The “job” defines its demands and basically eliminates the uncertainty and risk the entrepreneur must face in order to succeed. There is nothing wrong with this approach if it is satisfying to the individual. In fact, statistics will verify that most people take this path for their means of acquiring money because betting on themselves is simply too frightening and risky.
However, every choice has a consequence. So, I ask you, “When is the last time you met a wealthy or financially free person who has worked for someone else?” If financial freedom is a person’s goal in life it is almost 100% certain that they will need to become involved in their own business. If you want to be numbered among the financial elite you will need to think, act and believe like the financial elite. They think possibilities, not limitations! They accept risk as an important component of success! They set specific performance goals and they don’t know the word, “Quit”!
So, if you want financial freedom, the question and the conclusion are painfully obvious. Is personal change really an option, or is it unmistakably critical? As the great American heavyweight boxing champion, Joe Louis said, “You can run but you can’t hide!” Its the same with life changing insights — you can reject them, but you can never get away from the effects of rejecting them. Remember, in life we harvest what we plant….. and all planting begins with “thoughts.” Therefore, you must put new thinking into your head before you can expect to get new or different results in your life. This, my friends, is an undeniable law of change. We can elect to run, but the effects of our actions or neglect will always be manifest in our lives.
As I’ve often said from the platform, “Universal laws don’t give a damn if you or I ever learn them, accept them, or reject them.” No, they simply run the game we call life. Wise men know and accept this truth while the unwise persist in their self imposed delusions where dead dreams abound and mediocrity at best is their companion through life. I have found after 50 years of working in the field of motivational psychology and personal development that the “anticipation” of what change will demand is the biggest deterrent to getting started.
You see, most people do not lack the ability to succeed. What they lack is the willingness to change and endure what is required of them to justify success. I’m convinced that many more people would succeed if they would simply jump in the pool of opportunity with the inner confidence that they will eventually learn how to swim to success if they stay in the pool long enough and keep stroking. It will never be as tough as our miss -managed imaginations predict it will be. So, step out! Step it up! And, stay the course till you win!
I’ll close with this quote. Philosopher, Aldous Huxley said it best. “Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don’t know because we don’t want to know!” …to be continued on Monday, March 26th.

To your success,

“Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.”

Drowning in debt?

drowning in debt.

Several years ago I read an article that said credit card companies had to write off 6.3% of their loans that year. Roughly, that means one out of every 16 households gave up on paying their credit card balances. Ouch! And now even more people are in debt with the current world economy.

What about the other households that are still paying their debts? They are drowning in monthly payments to the bank and credit card companies. They desperately need more income to meet those big monthly minimum payments.

So when you’re visiting with a prospect who has a nice house, a nice car, and nice clothes … remember, your prospect may be desperate for a solution for more monthly cash flow.

You are the solution.

Instead of talking about $10,000 a month, try pointing out that your opportunity can provide $300 to $500 a month in extra cash. For many prospects, this is more believable.
