If your a business man or women then great for you.  I have one question for you,  who is your mentor?
There are so many people to look up to for advice and to duplicate what they are doing to achieve their success.

Eric Worre, Steve Jobs, Robert Hollis, Bill and Cynthia Delany, Mel Roberts  and more.  There are a ton of people outbthere out there to follow and learn their secrets of success.

Have you already choosen a mentor?   That’s great for you!  I’m so happy that you’ve found someone to look up to.

A good mentor should be someone in your business industry.  Wether you’re an entrepreneur,  working in the corporate world you need to find someone who has a proven track record of success.

They should have the skills, knowledge, and be willing to assist you with any questions or conserns that you have.

Is the person that you want to follow someone worth your time and investment in yourself?  If the person whom you choose to follow has all the qualities you are looking for in a mentor, then go for it!

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.

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.

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!

3 Deadly Mistakes In Network Marketing!

During a conversation I had with another network marketer it was brought to my attention that he didn’t really know my companies products, nor did he use them.   He proceeded to tell me that he bought the products and was familiar with all of them.  He only buys them, along with other MLM companies products to sell them to other families  so they can use them and make money.  I am still trying to figure out what the company might be?

When I asked him if he takes my companies starship product for himself the answer was, wait for it ……..”NO! Stop right their.  If you tell me that you’re buying products to “sell”; (Note to self I don’t sell products!  I provide a solution to problems. )  I am a problem solver!

To get back on track if you’re in a network marketing company and have products to sell, and you  don’t even know how they work on or in the body what are you doing?  Even if there is proven scientific research that is beyond the shadow of a doubt the real thing; then you’ve just made the first deadly mistake in network marketing.

▪ First and foremost— Know your companies product(s)!  It’s not enough to just “use” them but you have to be educated about them.  If you don’t know what they are che k with your upline, call customer service and g et information from them.  Research the products if you need to.  KNOW why your company stands out from all the rest!

▪ Secondly — Use the product(s)!  How can you truly endorse a product without using it?   Does Michael Jordan endorse Haines underware without using the product?  Well I hope that he does.  Lol.

Word of mouth is the most powerful tool we have in this industry.  Network Marketing is a word of mouth business!

▪ Don’t tell people you sell products — 99% of MLM ‘s, network marketing companies sell something.  When you’re approaching someone that knows nothing about your company, there products and compensation plan don’t tell them your selling them something.
