True Power Is Within Your Reach

People often equate success with power, and truth be told, successful people are powerful beyond belief, but it isn’t the kind of power that comes with military rank or job title or even lots of money.

Each one of us has the power to do great things – inspire, motivate and achieve greatness in whatever pursuit we choose.

Want to tap into that power? Here’s what you need to do:

Prosper where you are planted. Choose to, every day, wherever you are and in whatever you do, to be excellent. That’s a power you have within you that no one can take away. Go at your job as if you are President of the world even if you bake cakes for a living. You are President of your world. Don’t ever forget that.

Choose to be a victor not a victim. You have the power within you to choose to move forward no matter what the circumstances rather than play the blame game and live in mediocrity.

Influence, inspire and motivate those around you. You don’t need to be Tony Robbins to have an impact in other people’s lives. No matter what you do or who you are, you have the power to make a difference in someone’s life whether it is through words or simply leading by example.

Treat people the way they want to be treated. Treat them with respect. Express gratitude. Be kind. You don’t need a fancy degree for that. You don’t need a manager’s title for that. You have the power within you.

Want to do great things? Do these things. That’s true power that you already have within you. Do this and everything will fall into place.

To your success,

Kid President – Wouldn’t it be cool if we listened to kids more?

I recently came across some videos that absolutely made my day! Launched in 2012, Kid President was formed out of the simple belief that kids had voices worth listening to.

The idea initially came to the founders after they had started a camp for kids who “wanted to change the world”. Inspired by the ideas of the students, “Kid President” was born.

The videos produced are inspiring, uplifting, and simply awesome, to say the least. Totally worth the watch! (This is one You Tube channel I highly suggest you subscribe to)

Here’s a taste:

“Life is too short not to be awesome”

Impossible is just a big word

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad ali

This is one of my favourite quotes. Quite empowering, really. I am reminded of the story that was told to me time and time again as a child about the “Little Train That Could”. Whenever I came across something difficult, I thought of it as something that I could overcome and that there was no “can’t” (It helps having a very  positive Kindergarten teacher!) This quote, once again empowers me to believe that anything is possible. Be strong in this belief – It is an important step in achieving those outrageous goals!

5 Reasons Why You Should Not Give Up

 

Staying on track isn’t easy and the temptation to quit and give up can creep up during tough times. Here are 5 important reasons why I think you should keep going

Three-feet-from-gold1. You are closer than you think

What if you really are closer than  you think? What if you are just 3 feet away from diamonds? Another swing of the axe might just cut down that tree.

Success isn’t instantaneous. It does take time. Some of the most successful people in the world confess that they almost gave up, moments before it “happened” for them.

2. Your success is much more important than you think it is

If you quit now, you will never truly know what the world might have missed. Who could you have touched? Who could you have inspired? What difference could you have made?

3.  It gets easier

Think about it. Something you are good at today is probably something you found difficult in the past. Remind yourself of that when you find something  difficult. Do difficult things and stretch yourself. It will get easier and will be worth it when you master it.

4. Think of the rewards

Being comfortable isn’t really that comfortable is it? Sticking at it and getting a little “uncomfortable” can provide you with a much more “comfortable” lifestyle.

5. What’s the worst that can happen

When you think about quitting, remember that success is not a destination but a journey. there really is no failure.  Think of the growth you will experience, the lessons you will learn and the person you will become… even if you don’t meet a specific goal.  Do you really want to miss out on that?

21 Day Blogging Challenge · Network Marketing Business Tips

Are you treating your business like a business?

“Treat your business like a business and it will pay you like one… treat your business like a hobby and it will pay you like one”

It’s easy to fall into the trap of treating your new online business or Direct sales or Network Marketing  business as if you are just “testing the waters”. Perhaps someone sold you on the dream of easy riches so you are spending an hour or two here and there expecting the  money to start rolling in magically?

While I am all about big dreams and leveraging the internet to build a business in less time, the truth is that no matter what business you are in, whether it is online, traditional brick and mortar or door to door sales, you can’t get something for nothing and you do need to have a plan of action and treat your business like a business. Here are some things to consider:

Crunch the numbers

Know what is coming in and coming out. Make a plan as to what you want your revenue to be withing the next three months, six months, a year and five years. What do you need to do this week to achieve your goals? How many new customers do you need? How many new leads a day will help you achieve this? What will your expenses be? What hours do you need to put in?

Speaking of hours….

Set office hours. This isn’t a hobby. Make sure your family members and your customers alike, know exactly when you are working and when you are not.  Just because you work online or work from home does not mean that you aren’t working. If you were running a store, you wouldn’t close the doors mid-day to watch Oprah would you?

Back to the example of Network Marketing, it is understandable that many Network Marketers are still working full-time hours at their day job while they build their businesses. (What an awesome business model that is to be able to do so, by the way), however that does not mean that you can’t or shouldn’t put in the hours to build the business you set out to build. 20-25 extra hours doing productive income producing activities in a time span of a week is doable. That’s over 80- 100 hours a month dedicated to working at your new business. It’s not impossible . You will reap the rewards if you put in the time.

Take Daily Action

It’s easy to get stuck when you are just starting out. Uncertainty, lack of immediate results and fear can often lead you to a standstill … but only if you let it. Take daily action, however small. Always move forward and you will get through the stuck points. There’s nothing that activity won’t solve.

Treat Your Business Like  A Baby

The metaphor of a business like a newborn baby rings true. At the beginning, your business needs constant attention and nurturing. As the business grows and matures, it will to a degree sustain itself and you can step away a bit while still keeping watch.

Success Is A Decision Away

These aren’t just nice words meant to motivate and inspire. Success truly is a decision away. Once you decide with conviction that your business is a business, that it is not a hobby, that you are in it for the long haul… trust me, everything will fall in place. Decide on what you want in your future and take the steps to necessary to achieve it.

P.S. Not all home businesses involve recruiting and building teams. If you have not had success with that model and that’s of no interest to you, that’s O.K – it’s not for everyone!! Click on the Orange image below and learn about the e-commerce business I started that had me making sales in 24 hours with no recruiting!
