Definition to Success

 “Success is not a Destination, Success is a Definition”.  The reason so many people feel like failures is not just from a lack of results or the missing of set goals.  The biggest culprit is not knowing what Success means to them. There is no such thing as a public standard to measure success with because it’s not a title, rank, position or income destination, it is a personalized definition based on your own standards.  What success means to me may not mean to you.  For me sticking with my health and exercise program warrants total success in my mind and heart.

I would encourage you to take some time out and create your own definition of Success.  What does it really mean to you?  The worst place to measure Success is from other people and what they are doing.  Success can only be measured by what it means to you, the value and the meaning you place on it.  Once you come to terms of what success means to you write down in big letters “This Is What Success Means To Me…(Your Name)”! and then below it write out your definition.  The great thing about this is you can and will change it throughout your life time.

When I was ten years old Success meant throwing a fast ball batters could not hit.  On my 55th birthday my adult kids talked me into throwing a fast ball at Knott’s Berry Farm which almost sent me to the hospital in an ambulance.  It felt like my shoulder broke in two.

I promise you my definition of success is no longer throwing fast balls!

For millions of people earning a million dollars a year seems like a lot of money, but if Bill Gates only made a million dollars a year he would be asking his wife to sign them up for food stamps.  You cannot make Success a destination you can only make it your definition.

Success is the Harvest

rollercoaster

Sometimes we have to put money down in order for our income to go up! Never be afraid to invest in yourself, knowledge, education and business.  You are your best investment.  We spend thousands of dollars a year on books, programs, audios, home study courses, seminars and events so that we can be the best we can be so that we can serve you the best that we can.  I am always amazed how people are afraid to invest a few hundred dollars to go to a week end event to improve their life and business but have no problem spending a few hundred dollars a month on food and social drinks.

Success is the harvest of the time, energy, sacrifice and money we have invested in our lives to grow and expand personally as well as professionally. There have been many times that we have found out about an upcoming seminar and training event and cleared our entire calendar to attended that event.  As we move forward in our journey if we keep in the forefront of our mind that in order to reap much we must invest much to become a person and professional of excellence and quality.

Life will always have its up’s and down’s but that does not require us to ride that roller coaster of life.  We can grow to the point and place in life that we ride the waves of life like a professional and skillful surfer in the open ocean.  When it comes to life, live it like a”Professional”.

“Problems We Solve”

stock-photo-17026598-holding-the-sky

We are known and remembered by the “Problems We Solve” or the “Problems We Create”.

The marketplace is very attracted to those who solve problems and will in fact pay high fees depending on the importance of the problems you solve. This is why I counsel business owners and professionals never “frustrate your customers and clients” but always seek to make your business culture one that is easy and user friendly.  We welcome problem solvers with open arms and appreciate their contribution to our life, but when we encounter a “problem creator” we want to run to the rest room and throw up!

There are some people no matter what, they always have problems, create problems and are a major problem.  The sad fact is, they don’t want their problems solved they just enjoy causing problems.  These people are extremely toxic and addicting and difficult to rid your business and life from, that is what makes them so dangerous.  It’s ok to be a “walking problem” when we are toddlers but hey when the diapers come off so should our problem making come off too.  Our Grandson E-Jay who is coming up to his first birthday is a bundle of joy who we love without measure, but that homeboy is trouble on two little legs.  Our house looks like a “Hurricane” hit it after he comes for a visit.

The other day Melinda went to go pick him up, and she wanted to take our Nissan Cube but I said no just take the new car.  As we left together in separate cars, I taking the Cube got to the corner when I had this major vision of E-Jay in the back seat slinging cookies, crackers and juice all over the leather seats in our brand new car.  I slammed on my brakes, made and instant U-turn and flew down the high way to catch up to Melinda.  Speeding with flashing lights and honking horn I finally caught up to hear and yelled “Pull Over”!

I jumped out of the car and said…I just had a Vision and it wasn’t good!  We traded cars instantly.  Let’s make sure as professional adults we get the reputation of being a “Problem Solver instead of people looking at us and having a vision of a “Burning Inflamed Hemorrhoid” on two feet better known as a pain in the rump!

Give Up

Giving-up-quoteSometimes you have to “Give Up” before you can “Go Up”.  Give up?  That sounds strange coming from a Self Help Expert.  Think about it, if you want excellent health and you smoke, you will have to “Give Up” smoking, if you drink you will have to “Give Up” drinking, and if you eat poorly you will have to “Give Up” junk food if…Good Health is your objective.

The same is true in business.  There are some customers, clients, relationships, contacts, networks, products, associates and businesses that you have to “Give Up” before you can progressively “Go Up”.  Giving Up on things that no longer work be it people, places or things is “Never Easy” but “Absolutely Necessary” to move on, move up and move forward.  It is always painful to exit relationships be it business or personal even though they are no longer working and have become toxic.

I am always saddened when I have to finally “Give Up” on someone and walk away.  My Mentor taught me it is the saddest day in the life of a protégé’ when their Mentor steps out of their life.  My medical doctor told me on one visit “When you stop caring about your health is the day I stop caring about your health”At first I was highly offended at his comment but on the way home I realized what he said was right and truthful.

As long as you hang on to and refuse to “Give Up” the things that no longer work or serve you they will continue to eat away your success, energy, time, life, finances, health and business.  People have refused to “Give Up” smoking; excessive drinking and a host of other addictions and those things put them in their grave.  Business owners have refused to “Give Up” bad customers and/or employees and it drove them into bankruptcy.

I do my best to serve and acquire the Right people and discipline; no force myself to “Give Up” the wrong people.  By doing this I am able to do more good for people while at the same time be the best I can be.  Take a look at your life and business and see if there is anything you need to…”Give Up” in order for you to “Go Up”

Resolving Obstacles

iStock_000012173886Small

Problems, struggles and challenges do not go way because we want them too, they don’t dissolve even if we desperately need them to go away.  The only way obstacles are resolved and overcome is by dealing with them.  Because it is much easier to focus on doing the things we enjoy in life and business it becomes very easy to ignore issues that we would rather not deal with.  However, whenever we have areas that need to be addressed unless we address them head on they do not go away but in fact get worse.

Living a successful and abundant life requires daily discipline, growth and investment in you.  Look at your life as the greatest investment on earth.  What are you daily putting in? Because what you put in is what you put out.  It is the same with our money.  How we look and view our money will determine our financial future.  Nobody could possibly deny the economy problem we are facing globally. One cannot deny the fact that the US dollar is in serious trouble and that we are headed for another 1929 financial crash.  People in 1929 were warned 3 years before the crash that is was coming.  The ones saying that were labeled “Crazy Fanatics” that should be put in a mental hospital.  It was the “Roaring 20’s” how could they have a financial collapse?

So the masses (like today) refused to believe it and do anything about it.  The result was complete devastation for millions of people.  Do you realize right now we are in that exact same position and unless you do something like building up your gold savings you are going to be in serious financial trouble when it hits.  Let me show you how to start building up your gold 1 gram at a time, turning $65.00 US dollars into 65.00 of Gold Bullion.  Don’t ignore the major financial problem this country and the US dollar are in.  Do your home work and your own investigation.  Without owning Gold how could anyone sleep at night?  Remember I been acquiring Gold since 1980 so I am not telling you about Gold from the eyes of a novice or amateur gold collector.

Turn your Paper Money Into Gold

Two gold bars

There are two major things I always strive for:

  1. Multiply my (financial) seed (by sowing it)
  2. Turn paper into Gold!

During the dark ages “Alchemists” would work on trying to mix elements together to produce Gold.  I am told that even people like Isaac Newton and Nostradamus took this study of trying to create Gold serious.  Of course they failed for Gold cannot be manufactured. The interesting thing about Gold is that there is a very limited supply of it and there is not enough for everyone and that is one reason why it is so desirable and precious.  Ask any wealthy person and they will tell you “It’s foolish and financial suicide not to own some Gold”. 

The Alchemist dreamed of taking base metals and turning them into Gold, the fairy tale writer dreamed and wrote about a “Goose that lays Gold Eggs” and the little green man searches for the Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow.  

Of course we would all love if these “fictitious” tales were true but we all know they are not but… There is one such tale much like these fictitious ones except this one is real.  You can actually turn “paper” into Gold.  You see, that is exactly what we do when we acquire Gold Bullion.  We are taking paper money (which is losing its buying power by the day) and turning it into pure Gold.  In the end no intelligent person believes that paper currency or paper money will last and is stable.  Paper is paper and it does not have much value in and of itself, even if it is green.  In 1971 Richard Nixon took the US dollar off of the Gold standard making the US currency backed by nothing more than the paper it’s printed on.  This way the Government can print as much of it as it wants creating the illusion that “All is Well and Prosperous”.  Just look at our economy and you will see the wisdom in that theory.

Take some of your money that you work so hard for and turn it into Gold and let Gold work hard for you!

The Journey of 2008

iStock_000008830604Small

If you did not read yesterday’s email, go back and read it or you will not understand what I am talking about today.  With that being said lets continue the story…

January 4, 2008 we flew back home and I went back to work as usual, ready to keep the pace we left with.  Still not really knowing what was wrong I just put it on the back burner and continued to work.  However by March I had noticed that my list seemed asleep.  Meaning sales had been down and sluggish and my following customer base just was not responding like normal. I remember telling a friend of mine “My List has fallen asleep and I need to wake them up”.  I was half way joking not really being concerned about it because we were still making a lot of money and I figured it was a slump that would soon pass.

By October of that year 2008 it started becoming acutely visible that something now was drastically wrong.  My list was not waking up and I started seeing people who once had a lot of money now suddenly starting to struggle.  Financially our companies were still fine and we even were expanding in some new areas.  By the end of the year of 2008 when our taxes were done we were down about 100k from 2007.  Still not worried or scared but was certainly concerned now.  Something strange was happening in the fact that many wealthy people I knew were finding themselves in financial trouble for the first time in their professional lives and while incomes were going down the price of Gold kept going up.  That was an alarm bell I did not hear or recognize.

As 2008 closed we had new plans, new formats and new products and we were going to turn things around in 2009 by…  (We will pick up story tomorrow)
