The Skill of Seeing Opportunity…

The story is told of Thomas Edison at the height of his career and fame once went into his shop and asked one of his young employees what was his number one goal was in the whole wide world?   Without hesitation the young apprentice replied, “Oh Mr. Edison I want to wealthy like you”.  Mr. Edison smiled without saying a word and left the building.

A short time later Mr. Edison returned with a pair of glasses in which he replaced the lens with silver dollars.  He asked the young man who had told him that his greatest dream was to be wealthy to put on the glasses and tell what he saw.  The young man put on the pair of glasses and replied, “Mr. Edison, I don’t see anything”.  Mr. Edison then told the young man, “that is your problem, money is right in front of your eyes and you cannot even see it!”

Everyone has a millionaire within.

 

If there was anything my Millionaire Mentors taught me they taught me the skill of spotting and “Seeing Opportunity”.  If there is one thing that shocks me still after being in the personal development industry for over thirty years is the thousands of people who cannot see “Opportunity” when it is sitting there right in front of their eyes.  Everyday millions of people wake up and complain about their terrible circumstances in life, when standing right in front of them calling their name is the Opportunity to changes those unfavorable conditions.

However, seeing opportunity is only half of the equation of success, the second part which is just as important as seeing it is the ability to “Take Action on Opportunity” People have burned to death in a burning building because they were afraid to jump even though there were firemen and a net ready to catch them to safety.  They were aware of the horrible situation; they saw the opportunity to save themselves from a burning building but stood there frozen and not take action.

It is important to take some time today and look around at the dozens of opportunities that are knocking on your door.  Learn to become proficient in seeing opportunity and then make sure you work on developing the self discipline to take action on those opportunities.  Playing it safe, procrastinating, and waiting for the perfect conditions can all be a death warrant to your future finances.

I will close with the wisdom that Bob Proctor taught one morning when I was having an early breakfast with him in Scottsdale, Arizona.  We were talking about decision making and its importance.  He looked at me and said, “Don the way you make the right decision every time is to ask yourself two questions;

  1. Will this decision move me closer to my dreams?
  2. Is this decision in harmony with what I am doing? 

If you answer yes to both those questions, you move forward and make that decision.  You don’t worry if you have the money, ability, resources, time, energy or anything else, once you make the right decision based on those two questions everything else you need will show up.

That wisdom that Bob Proctor taught me many years ago has served me well and has never failed or let me down, even when it went against (and many times it did) conventional thinking and apparent evidence to do other wise.

Remember this economy we are in today is not the cause of your lack, but it does demand that you take responsibility for your results in life.

Have a great Sunday, and I will see all on Monday.

Predictable Wealth

If we are not careful it is very easy to fall into the illusional trap of believing that money, and wealth, even cash flow is evasive and unpredictable.  And for many professionals and business owners it absolutely is.  However, it is not because Wealth is unpredictable, but it’s because people have never learned the set principles that govern wealth and how to master them to such a way that wealth becomes as predictable as the morning Sun.

I have the utmost respect for all my teachers and Mentors who taught me the life skills of the Law of Attraction and I am a hundred percent believer in this Law of Life and use and promote this principle myself.  However, stating that, I have seen a lot of people who did not understand the complete Law of Attraction and thus become bitterly disappointed and frustrated because they did not obtain the results they were seeking.

law of attractionWhen it comes to using the Law of Attraction I think Brian Tracy has been a shinning beacon of light in this matter, to help us all learn and understand the proper use of this dynamic law.  You see, many people have this thought pattern that the Law of Attraction eliminates the Law of Hard Work.  The Truth of the Matter, like Brian teaches, Hard Work actually activates the Law of Attraction.

Here is what I have learned and experienced about the Law of Attraction and the Law of Hard Work…

The Harder I Work The More

The Law of Attraction Seems To Work

To Produce Miracles 

It is the law of hard work, and massive activity that produces the miracle process of prosperity, cash flow, customer retention, business growth and “Predictable Wealth”. 

Here is a little exercise for the 3 percent group (the 97 percent group of the masses will just look at this exercise, scratch their ass and continue to wonder why they are broke)

Write down you goal that you want to earn every Month.

Now, write down your current marketing plan you are using to grow your business and sales and compare them to your monthly income goal and ask yourself if the marketing plan you are using right now is going to get you that monthly income goal?

This business and financial acid test is the beginning process to get you to start using the principles of Predictable Wealth.  If we ever hope to achieve financial independence the first person we must stop lying to about our circumstances is to ourselves!  There is nothing worse than not knowing or being able to depend on a constant predictable cash flow or monthly income, but that problem is easily resolved by having a proper marketing plan in place.

If you are an Entrepreneur, business owner, professional, salesperson, part-time business owner, coach, speaker, network marketer, or have an on-line business, you can Predict your Wealth by looking at your marketing system, which is simply the method you use to obtain and retain customers and clients.

If you do not have a solid, proven Marketing Plan and System in place that you are using everyday to increase your customer base and sales, the “Grim Reaper” of business failure is hot on your trail and it will only be a matter of time before he catches you and does things to you that would not be done to a farm animal!

Whenever I speak to professionals and business people, I ask them “what is their marketing plan to attract new customers and increase sales on a monthly basis is’.  The majority it’s sad to report have nothing solid in place, as they scramble to hide, get around or dodge the question, I see this big sign stamped on their forehead “Business Death Sentence”. 

Let me share a personal story with you.  Ever since I was a teenager, I had this uncanny compassion for the poor and those struggling with financial need.  It was compassion so strong that it compelled me when I was sixteen years old to take half my pay check on Friday and go to skid row in Los Angeles, California and give money to all the people living on the streets.

I had no clue or idea why I was like this, or felt this way.  In fact, in my twenties, I prayed that God would make me a Millionaire so I could help people who struggled financially. In fact even to this day, when I see people driving around in a Junkie old car with no air conditioner, black smoke coming from the tail pipe, crack windshield and a bunch of kids in the back seat, it makes me realize why I go to the marketplace everyday and shout that there is a better way.  You do not have to live in lack and shortage.

All anyone must do is just stop and take the time to Learn how to change things!  When I see once prosperous business people, fighting to stay afloat, I know that they do not see the answer to their problem, and that is why we are so vehement to try to wake everyone up to the fact that…”The Answer to Prosperity Is Not In Positive Thinking or The Law of Attraction, it is having a Solid Proven Marketing Plan that you implement with Massive Activity Everyday. 

No matter what your financial flow is right now, your moral obligation is to increase it and this is why I compel you to take advantage of our Free Exclusive Inner Circle Membership.  It does not cost you a thing, not even shipping, we send you over $300.00 a month in training materials and give you personal coaching.   If you have not taken this step yet, get out of the 97 percent group of those who are not living there dreams but living their nightmares, and sign up right now at www.DonBoyerAuthor.com.

I have great compassion for those who are hurting, especially for those who are struggling financially, but I have no pity for Stupidity of those who refuse to take positive action to change things and only complain how bad things are.

Wow, I hope I still have readers left after today’s blog.  Just know we love you and only want the best for you!  See you on Sunday!

Hard Times Are Not Necessary…

As Melinda and I drive around our city, the number of empty business buildings seems to be at record highs.  I am sure that empty buildings are also saturating your town and city.  One of the saddest things is to drive by a business and peer into the windows and see that there are no customers in there. The business seems like a dying ghost town.

Embrace the JourneyAs a business owner myself, I know how painful it is to be in a situation where you see your heart, blood, hard work and total investment dying and going down the tubes. Unless you been there, words cannot express the pain and heartache.  Driving to get a big Cheese Burger from Tommy’s the other night, waiting the for the light to turn green I was looking into a little mom and pop Mexican restaurant where there was not a single person in there, my stomach got a knot of compassion for them.

The thing that disturbs me more than seeing these dying businesses and empty buildings is realizing that all this shortage and hard times is Completely Unnecessary!  The reason these buildings are empty and business owners are failing is because they never took the time to develop an economy sustaining Marketing Plan and System to Attract New Customers and Sustain Current Customers.  If they had a Proven Marketing Plan they would prosper like an Oasis in the middle of a hot desert.

Although our economy is harsh, it does not cause professionals to suffer lack.  What a bad economy does however is demand us to take 100 percent Responsibility for the results that are happening in our business and life.

In a good economy, it allows us to coast and ride the wave of global prosperity without taking much responsibility for our business and therefore can thrive with a poor marketing plan or no marketing plan at all.

But all that changes when the economy goes south and now you are in the middle of a battle with no experience, no weapons, no way to defend yourself and the enemy comes in like a flood and turns you every way but loose and does you butt wrong!

If you are a business owner or professional, unless you make a strong change of direction in your marketing plan and put that plan at the very top of your priority list, it will be just a matter of time until you will become the next victim of these vicious economic times we are facing today.

Hear me well, things are not going to get better any time soon, we are a long, long way off before the financial pressure is going to let up, and only those who are Marketing Prepared and Strong are going to survive.  For those of you that are currently employed and do not have some kind of side business in the works, that’s like walking on a tight rope without a net on a very windy day.

The Good News is, you do not have to be a victim of this economy, Hard Times Are Not Necessary.  Wake up and realize the reason for your business lack is the lack of a Marketing Plan.  Your Marketing Plan and Plan of Massive Activity is going to be your Ark that will save you in this storm!

To all our readers, we come here everyday to share with you proven ideas and tips that not only keeps us afloat in this economy but allows us to prosper and thrive.  This is why I invite all of you, no matter what industry you are in to join our Free Exclusive Inner Circle Membership where we help you reach your dreams.  Here is what one member wrote…

Take No B.S. From Anyone…

I believe that as decent moral, integrity based human beings that we should live our life by the Golden Rule and for those of us that are in business we should always go the extra mile, give far more than we ever take and do everything we can to improve our attitude, skills and life so that we can be genuinely a Nice Person.  Our goal should be kind and helpful to people and never do anyone any harm.

Now, that being said, this does not mean you become a door mat for rude, obnoxious people.  In fact, as a professional and business owner you should have a Number One Rule that states “I Tolerate No B.S.” especially from prospects and bad customers!  Over the years I have thrown out Customers and Prospects from Hell that were high paying people, famous people, well known leaders and Celebrities from our books, movies, Mentorship programs because once you tolerate bad behavior from people, they will be taking a dump in every room of your house.

When a Customer from Hell slips past our gates, I throw them out immediately and shove their refund up their butt as I slam the door!  For instance, when someone writes me an unsolicited nasty critical letter, email or post, my first instinct use to be to spend time writing back an apologetic response and trying to explain my point of view in a pleasant manner.

Then one day, it dawned on me, “why in the world am I spending all this time and energy on this worthless bag of shit?”

I need to be focusing all my time and energy on serving the thousands of loyal customers we have and doing everything we can to help them.  There is never any reason why you need to take rude abusive behavior from people just because you need their business or the sale. “Don’t Do It”.

money_go_up_cd_cover_tilted[1]There are unlimited amounts of wonderful, loving, decent, perfect, Ideal Customers out there waiting to enter into a win-win relationship with you. Never disrespect anyone, but never allow anyone to disrespect you either.  We live in a world of ingratitude, I get it.  People are consumed only with their problems and life; that is human nature.  We send out thousands of dollars of Free CD’s, DVD’S, Books, Packages, all postpaid and find out of every 525 gifts we send, we get 2 Thank You replies (and sometimes one of those two thank you notes are Thank you for never contacting me again and that is after the stupid little bastard requested the Free gift in the first place!)

However, we do not send out these Free Gifts to get a Thank You response, if I did I might end up in the Nut House!

My motto is, “Friends to All, Enemies to None”.  When I do have to cut loose a nasty, mean, customer and prospect that snuck out of Hell and somehow landed on my door step I tell them with all sincerity, “I love you, but I can’t stand your presence…your Ass is out of Here!  In closing, my blog today is not to offend anyone but to help everyone learn how to focus on where the real wealth is, and that is serving all those wonderful people that honor and respect you as you do the same for them.

As always, it makes our day to spend this little time with each of you and want you to know we appreciate you from the bottom of our hearts your daily visit and positive post and taking the time and effort to share us with your friends and family.
