Follow

To follow someone or something is defined as:

★ to go or come after or behind (someone or something)

★ to go after or behind (someone) secretly and watch to find out what happens

★ to come after (something) in time or place or as part of a something

Following ■■

We all follow something.  A belief in God, a higher power, other peoples blog sites, social media accounts, a mentor the list goes on.

There are quite a few apps out now that you can download to gain “instant” followers for your social media accounts.   I really looked over the Instagram app and I was about to download it, then I stopped and thought to myself; ” I don’t radomly follow other people’s accounts so why would I  want 300, 400, 500+ people followong following me at random”? 

Something To Ponder ●¤

Think about what and whom you’re following on social media?
Do you follow the trends?  Are you just followingother following other people in social media just because you “downloaded ” an application that your friend told you about?

Are you selective in what and whom you’re following?  I choose who I want to follow and I follow them either because they share a same value, opinion, belief system or business that I am in. 

I would rather have others follow my social sites because they see a value in something that I write about than just following me because of an application that programs it for them.

Today as I look back on when I started this writing journey, I find myself thinking “Have I really written all of these articles “?

Yes, yes I have. My goal when I started this blog was to hopefully inspire my readers, to offer a different look at the way things are being done in the network marketing community.

Is there a standard?

I have been involved in the network marketing industry on and off for years. I’ve represented some companies that I’m sure you’re very aware of. Was I successful in these companies?
How is success defined? Was I able to sell the products, recruit others into the business?
While the companies I represented have been in the industry for a while now nothing ever clicked.

Everyone has basically the same thing. A product(s), a compensation plan, training and other perks. How can anyone become a professional in the business?

Work smarter than others, keep doing it until you achieve your goals. If it takes 10,000 hours to becomes great at something then maybe, just maybe we can achieve the success we seek in a shorter time if we work together.

Repurposing Content

Repurposing your content is easy.

For example;  I created this video earlier this year.   Now I am “repurposing” it to incorporate it into my blog post.

In this video I talk about comparing a double rainbow and business.   Be an example for other’s to follow,  make good on your promises to others.

Just because you write a blog, make a video, create a picture for Instagram doesn’t mean that it only can be used for that one purpose.

Creating  ContentWhat inspires you when your creating content for your social media?

Is it a picture, a quote, information to share?  Never be afraid to use the content that you’ve created in more than one place. 

  When do we become an expert on certain topics?
Does it take days, months even years?  I’ve been told that it takes 10,000 hours to perfect a craft.  That’s seven years.  I don’t want to take seven years.  I want to do it in less time than that!

Together we can Gain The Advantage!

Needs Verses Wants

Needs are not wants!

That’s what my mother always told me. I would say, “Mom I need that record”. She would say to me, ” No you really don’t. That is something that you want”.

What is a need? A need is things that we all need to survive. A roof over our head, food, money , companionship, love and health.

I could say, “I need a laptop and a printer, a lot more interested people who want to change the world through this amazing cutting edge technology breakthrough”. However these things are not actual needs. They are my wants, my hearts desires. I desire to have a laptop and printer to run my home business more efficiently. I desire people with the same mindset and values as myself whom want to change the world.

What is a want? A want is just that. You want something so you find a way to make it happen. I want to be debit free, have new home, see my children happy and my grandchildren healthy.

Wanting things are in the human nature. Needing certain things are a necessity in life. We all need food, a warm home to live in, an income to by the food, cook the food and heat the  said.

Whomever said, “Money doesn’t buy happiness” was a true moron! We all need money to live, it’s just that some people have more than others and they can do whatever they want.

You can have your needs meet and your wants can be turned into reality. Dream and dream big.

Enthusiasm!

IMG_20151207_080033

What are you enthusiasts about?

A new business opportunity, Monday night football, your family?   Whatever it is you want to run, jump up and down, yell it from the mountain tops; “Hey world look at this I’m so excited to share it with you”!

Enthusiasm in it’s true form is contagious.  If you really think about it the last time someone was so excited around you, you just had to know why?  Then as they proceeded to tell you, you began to get excited about the same thing.

Do you wake up with enthusiasm about the start of a new day?  Ready to takle on anything the day brings?  Or do you wake up feeling unexcited, gloomy and depressed about yiur your situation?

No matter what happens you’re bound to run into somebody with a contageous and exciting enthusiasm about something.

“Act enthusiastic,  and you’ll be enthusiastic “!

30 Day Challenges

wp-1449258723277.jpegHave you ever done a 30 day challenge?

I recently was researching online about 30 day challenges and found that most of the top challenges are about weight loss or weight management.
There are so many topics that a person can choose from. Blogging, eating, weight loss, sex, fashion and more. Do they really work? It’s said that it takes 30 days to change a bad behavior or to get into “the habit” of doing something different.

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/510487

James Clear writes in his article titled; “How Long Does It Actually Take to Form a New Habit “. He states “that how society started spreading the common myth it takes 21 days to form a new habit (or 30 days or some other magic number).”

What is the correct number?
On average, it takes more than two months before a new behavior becomes automatic. It takes ….. 66 days to be exact! Habits can be easily formed but don’t limit yourself to a certain time frame.
Each of us have our own way of doing things, and what may take me 30 days may take someone else 15 or 60.

Secondly, you are unique in every way. You strivefor perfection and sometimes you obtain it, and other times you don’t. Don’t treat a failure as a failure. Instead treat it as an accomplishment with needing a better outcome, next time.

Thirdly, make yourself a guideling or chart to go by. Visualeffects can stimulate your mind and get you going into the right direction.

In close, at the end of the day you are responsible for yourself. How you progress is up to you. Before ending the day can you be happy with what you’ve accomplished in your challenge?

Challenge comes in many forms in a daily basis. It’s how we choose to carry out the good or bad behaviors that help us beome the overcomer.

Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday

How did we ever get along from one Christmas to the next without using a computer to shop?

I remember going shopping as a child with my mother.   The sights, the sounds, the wonderful smells and music.   Have we missed something in all the hustle of the internet?  Does shopping online give us the same gratification as it did when we were children?

This year November 2015 retailers took a different approach to the “traditional” black Friday sales and they actually closed their stores, allowing their employees to be a part of their own families celebrations.

To those retailers I applaud you.  REI, Nordstroms, Hobby Lobby and more.  Have the CEO’s of these companies started a new, old trend?

Yes it’s one of the biggest internet shopping days of the year.  And whether you’re at work on your computer surfing the internet, or from your mobile device the fact is your already shopping for somethingor someone to help you build your successful asset.

How can we apply Cyber Monday to being an entrepreneur and networking with other like minded people?   Instead of searching the internet for that one great deal, why not search for other like minded people that maybe in need of someone to help coach them in their business building efforts?   Offer your services to assist them with what they’re lacking .

Are you seeking to learn more about how to become the leader that you want to be?  There are many resources out there in this big cyber world.  How does one know who to go to for help?

Find someone you trust.  That’s it plane and simple.  Your reading tjis right now does it mean that you put your trust in me?  I can’t answer that for you,  you need to be the one to answer that question.

I don’t claim to be an expert in these matters; however I am on a journey just as you are to find the solution to gain followers,  attract others to my main mlm business and as always gain the advantage!

Thanksgiving

Of course everyone is blogging about what they are thankful, or grateful for on Thanksgiving.

We have all been taught that this is the day the Pilgrims and the Indians sat down to give thanks for everything that was produced in the harvest that year. However it makes me wonder were the Indians really that happy to share a meal with the Pilgrams?
If one stops to think about the time back then is this were sharing, caring, gratitude and loving thy neighbor was started? Or before or after the holiday is this were racism truly started in America?

Yes I know what your thinking; “Why on today of all days is she saying that word”? Racism, Hate, Teasing, Uncompassion for our fellow men is this one time where it started in America?

When we don’t understand why or how someone is different from us, then the thoughts of racism are stirring up inside of our minds and it’s up to us if we act upon those thoughts. I am saying all this to make you think. Think about how people treat or treated you when they find out that YOU are an ENTREPRENEUR a NETWORK MARKETER. Were they excited? Did they jump for joy, hug you and say that they have been waiting to hear more from a network marketer ? My guess is probably not.

Entrepreneurs and Network Marketer’s have made this country great!! Yes we are looked down upon by certain groups and people in society. If Steve Jobs had listened to other people’s hateful, rude remarks telling him to “Go Get A Real Job”, would we have Apple Computer’s? What if Alexander Graham Bell stopped trying with all his inventions and just listened to other people about how stupid he was for never giving up? Would we have the telephone today? I’m not sure about the answers to these questions; however I do know that the answer is I AM SO THANKFUL THAT ALL OF THE PREVIOUS INVENTORS, ENTREPRENEUR’S who never quit!! Ignored all the haters and nay sayers to build this country from the ground up!

From the lumber jacks, the blacksmiths, the steele mill workers, iron workers, minors, blue collar worker’s, I say “THANK YOU ” FOR YOU AND MANY OTHERS ARE FROM THE BACKBONE, BARE ROOTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! !

Yes now we have advanced technologies to communicate with other people all over the world. What will happen next?

What if we took EVERYDAY to be thankful for thingsin our lives instead of one day, one month out of the year?

I send blessings of peace, joy, health, wealth and happiness to you all. May God bless you and may GOD continue to bless AMERICA!
