Should You Give Up?

Should you give up? Have you ever asked this question once or twice in your life time?

To carry on with a task or goal that seems impossible and you are sure that will lead to failure. Well did you stop in your tracks or did you soldier on?

In Napolean Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich, he speaks of having “Faith” in one of his chapters – All thoughts which have been emotionized (given feeling) and mixed with faith begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart.

The modern world that is driven by technology should be saving us time and making more money for us. In reality families often struggle to make ends meet, working 2 or 3 jobs and look after the kids.

So how do you balance your 9 to 5 job, your family, your internet or networking marketing business and other commitments such as church and sports?

From personal experience to be honest with you I have struggled to keep all the balls in the air at the same time. Here is how I have gone about resolving the conflicts which do occur.

1. State your objectives in writing for each part of your life with a time to get it done.

2. State in writing why these objectives are important to you.

3. State in writing what it is going to be like when you complete these objectives.

4. Start preparing a plan immediately. Simple or detailed it is up to you.

5. Get into action.

Life is precious and so is time. We are all here for a limited time on this earth and if we can make every minute count, the results could be super extraordinary.


What Keeps You Motivated With Your Home Business ?

Can you recall what got you started with your MLM,Network Marketing, Internet Marketing or Home Business Enterprise?

What was your BIG why?

The important thing to remember when starting out in this amazing industry is that starting up your own enterprise in whatever form, will take time. Unlike a 9 to 5 job where you go to work, come home and get paid regardless of your performance. The same rules do not apply in the Home Business arena.

You will need to find a way to:

  • advertise your business
  • generate leads from the advertising that you do
  • match the wants of your customer with your solution
  • follow up with after care customer service
  • recruit mentors and team members to help you
  • keep up the administration
  • and much more…

It sounds like a lot of work and it is, especially if things do not go your way.  So after the initial honeymoon period is over is it surprising that so many entrepreneurs quit and go right back to a 9 to 5 job and remain in this zone until retirement.

So if you are not motivated and your Why for “doing it in the first place” is not strong, why did you start at all?

On the other hand if you believe in what you are doing and can see where you are going and have a clear destination in mind, half the battle has been won. The other half will be completed through planning, help from others and most importantly your own action.

So What Keeps You Motivated With Your Home Business ? A powerful tool I have used over the past few years is listening to live conference calls and personal development recordings over and over again.

  • Each time I listen to inspiring words, this regenerates my enthusiasm and keeps me going.
  • Each time I listen to a live conference call I am excited when I learn something new.
  • Each time I apply something that I have learned and it works that is a great feeling.

In a world where so much focus is on doom and gloom it is imperative to fill your mind with positive thoughts and seek out mentors who will help you to achieve your goals and dreams.

Remember what keeps you motivated and your why, in tough times these will help to give you strength.


What Is Behind A Winning Attitude?

Have you ever wondered why some people appear to be unstoppable in their personal and business lives? They excel at almost everything they do and when something does not work out, they get straight up, and soldier on.

What do these people possess that others do not?
Is it a Winning Attitude?

Let’s take a look at a couple of areas that may help to explain this phenomenon:

The Definition of Attitude?

The wikipedia definition is “An attitude is a hypothetical construct that represents an individual’s degree of like or dislike for an item. Attitudes are generally positive or negative views of a person, place, thing, or event– this is often referred to as the attitude object.”

In short your attitude affects everything you do or do not do.

So if some people appear to be unstoppable, what happened to him or her to make them this way?

  • Were they born like this?
  • Did they inherit loads of cash from their long lost Uncle so they have no worries in the world?
  • Or have they adopted a Winning Attitude to help achieve each goal?

The person that appears to be unstoppable has most likely experienced “failure” not once, not twice but many times. It is a fact that human beings are not perfect and do fail, but here is the big secret, failure is fine…as long as the lesson behind each failure is learned the success rate will improve.

Roger Federer and Tiger Woods are world champions in their respective sports. They do not win every game, but they win the majority. If the Winning Attitude was not within them, both of these players would have given up years ago.

One can accept failure and retreat into the majority zone or rise to the occasion and defeat it. To defeat failure you must have an attitude to match.

So how do you achieve a Winning Attitude?

In the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, he provides the steps to help achieve any goal desired. An important part to achieving goals as outlined in the book is to use emotion so that you “see and feel and believe yourself already in possesion of the money (goal)”.

If you have belief, the how will follow.

Listening To The Unconcious Mind

Have a quick visit to the website link below. There is a handy comparison between the Concious and Unconcious mind’s.

Concious and Unconcious mind

Both have a part to play in the development of a Winning Attitude.

Identifying when your Unconcious mind is speaking directly with you may take time, but by learning to listen to your Unconcious mind with increased frequency over time you will find more solutions to problems in your personal and business life.

Sometimes the best decisions we make in life appear to have no logical reasoning behind them, they just “feel” right at the time.

Is it possible to program the mind to attain a Winning Attitude? Possibly.

Again in the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill he has written a Chapter on the power of Autosuggestion. The chapter is short and well worth your read.

Autosuggestion is yet another tool you can use to develop a Winning Attitude.

The Four Distinct Personality Types (aka Colors)

It is imperative to have an understanding of the four distinct personality types if you are to make your journey in life that much easier. By understanding the four distinct personality types of others and more importantly your own, you can move towards an understanding of how people think and manage objections with greater ease.

Having greater understanding leads to increased confidence and a Winning Attitude, because you are more comfortable with others and yourself.

There is a post on the Best MLM Resources Blog about the Four Distinct Personality Types (aka Colors) and can be found at the link below:

Post on Four Distinct Personality Types

Right now you may be having an aha moment, because you have just realized that you are a YELLOW, but have been taught at the RED’s school. Or you are a BLUE trying to be a GREEN.

How can you have a Winning Attitude if you are going to the wrong school?

So How Can You Achieve The Winning Attitude?

At the end of the day the EXACT formula will be different for everybody. Because we are all different.

This may explain why people struggle at school or in business, because they are using a ONE SIZE FITS ALL TEMPLATE and quite frankly this is not going to work for everybody.

The answer to achieve the Winning Attitude lies from within, it is up to YOU to release it in your own time.
