Definition to Success

iStock_000012173886Small

 “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.

Fathers Day Tribute…

me and dad

Me and my Dad at the Age of 14

First and foremost a hearty salutation to all fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers for all the care and investment you made into your children’s lives.  I look back on the role my father played in my life and I could never express the gratitude I feel for him (he has since passed away) nor say Thank You enough for being the great dad he was to me.  The best way I know how to thank him and make the most of the investment he made in my life is to become the best human being I possibly can and succeed to the heights that he desired for me.

The great thing about Fathers Day is to remember that our Creator has provided many benefits as well.  In fact, we are Rich because our Heavenly Father is Rich.  He owns cattle on a thousand hills and all the Gold of the Earth and He has given set laws to get that wealth to us.  Did you notice I said set laws?

Many people have an internal view and belief of God bringing them prosperity by means of faith and giving a whole lot of money to some Ministries.  The metaphysical group believes they are going to “Think and Grow Rich” using positive affirmations, visualizations and accurate thinking.

Although both these schools of thought have some truth in them and both carry a certain amount of importance, the true way God brings wealth and prosperity is through laws that are governable, traceable and predictable. Here are a few of those set laws.

1. The Law of Hard Work   Whenever you set out on a task be it growing your business and income or finding new customers, the key ingredient is hard work.  When you work hard at something you will be able to see the MastermindGroupresults of your labor.  It also gives you the feeling and knowing that you are doing something, that you are a part of the success you desire.

2. The Law of Exposure   If you are selling something, anything, the rate in which you do that is based upon exposure.  The more people who know what you are selling the higher percentage of a chance you have of selling that item.  You could have the greatest product in the world but if no one knows about it what good does it do.  On the other hand, the moment you understand and make a commitment to the law of exposure you begin to tap into that unlimited wealth that God has provided for you.

3. The Law of Activity   This is one of my favorite of all success laws because we alone control this factor.  When we are out selling we cannot control who will say yes and who will say no to our offer but what we can control is the activity of how many people we present to. And because artofbusinessipodselling is a numbers game, we can control our business growth, income and sales through the law of activity.  There are very few money problems that cannot be solved with the law of activity.  The great fallacy of sales is to believe that after we get a yes, we get so excited we emotionally feel that we will never get another no or rejection.  On the flip side of that, after we encounter a no, we emotionally feel that everyone we talk to from then on is going to be no.  Of course both situations are incorrect.  Once we understand the law of activity we will no longer wonder what our income is going to be at the end of the month, or where our next sale is going to come from.  Our income, growth and sales will become predictable and measurable before we step in front of one prospect.  When you master these 3 laws of Success you never have to worry about money again, because the flow of money into your life will be completely in your control and not in any other factor in life.

Knowing how God really gets success and money to you will save you from a lot of disillusionment, confusion, disappointment and bitter despair.  You cannot really “Think and Grow Rich” but you can work your ass off and get rich.  I would write a book with that title but too many people would get mad at me for it!

So in closing today make this week and day of massive exposure, hard work and activity and you will be surprised how many miracles will come forth.

Hide and Seek?

Help…I am desperately looking for you. I cannot see you and cannot seem to find you.Where are you? 

Believe it or not, this is the heart cry of millions of people who are looking for you and want to fill your bank account full of cash; they are called your Ideal Customer. There is no shortage of ideal customers, no shortage of sales and no shortage money.  So what is the problem with your cash flow and business growth?  These ideal customers cannot find you because of a Book Postcardlack of exposure on your part.

Finding “New Customers” is the life blood of every business.  However, for the masses of those seeking success, finding new customers is as painful as getting dental work with out Novocaine.  The good news is…it does not have to be that way.

How do you find new customers?  You don’t…you let customers, the people who have the money and desire to buy what you are selling find you. I assure you, those kind of people are out there by the groves.  Why do you think infomercials have been so successful?  Selling billions of dollars of products that will end up in a few years at the 99 cent store.  The key is not finding and prospecting for new customers but making yourself visible and seen in the market place so that your ideal customer can find you and fill your pockets with cash.  Many people have a hard time conceptualizing the fact that right now, no matter what you are selling, millions of people are out there desperately looking for you wanting to buy your product.

Please, write this next statement in bold letters where you can see it everyday…”There is No Shortage of People who have the Money and Desire to Buy what I Sell”.  At this very moment, your perfect customer is looking all over for you, but can not find you.  Why?  You are like the indivisible man or woman walking around and no one can detect your presence.

In order for your customers to find you, you have to have a fog horn sounding, flashing lights, fireworks going off, beam lights flashing in the sky…in essence, you must be a shining lighthouse.  How do you do that?

Exposure and the power of Leverage

chriswisebookYou must let the masses know you exist and how to find you, because in the mist of the masses are more ideal customers than you could handle.  Everything I do is about exposure and making my presence known in the market place, allowing people to find me.  Listen, you do not sell products or services, what you do is solve problems, help people and make their lives better.  Customers are looking for you, you do not have to sell them, just let them know how to find you.

Most people spend their entire life trying to sell people their products and services.  That is a hard road to travel that is laced with a very high failure rate.  You can succeed with this method…if you are addicted to misery.  Why not do it the easy way and make more money and enjoy life more?

The more exposure you get, the easier it will be for people who want what you have to find you.  That is the key to more profits and business growth.  So I ask you, what are you doing to gain massive exposure?  One of the best things you are doing is being a Co-Author in our books, which leads me to our next secret…

Leverage:  If you do not employ leverage in your business, you are working to hard and robbing yourself of a financial fortune.  You want to make sure you blow your fog horn in a crowd of thousands, millions is even better, and not just a group of 10 people at a time.  On the other hand, you do not want to spend a ton of money on advertising that does not work.  The key is to ask; “How can I get the most bang for my exposure buck?  Yes there is an investment in making your presence known in the market place.

People will say the best exposure is free, that my friend is the death gargle of an under achievers.  When it comes to growing your business, do not build it on free stuff.  Excellent quality is never free!  Why do you think the commercial at half time during the Super Bowl is so expensive?  Prime exposure.

Take a moment and think about shifting your mindset from finding customers to learning how to get customers to find you.  Not only is this type of method a lot easier, is far more productive and profitable.

Here is a little exercise I encourage you to do everyday; Visualize people with a fist full of cash, running in a mad rush, calling out your name to find you so they can exchange that fist full of cash for your product and then ask yourself this question; “What can I do today to help those people find me?”  Then write that answer down and implement it.

What is the best way to create massive leverage, attract more customers in a month than most attract in a year and drive massive traffic to your website?  Becoming a published author with bestselling authors like Bob Proctor, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar and many more.  If you would like increase your income, attract more customers and take your business to the next level of success by being featured in our upcoming Power of Mentorship book contact me at don@donboyer.org for more details.

The Law of Activity

Have you ever tried to exercise the Law of Attraction and did not seem to get the results you were hoping for?  I think everyone on the planet has!  Just like anything new, the Law of Attraction has a leaning curve as well.  However, you can save yourself a lot of heartache, disappointment, frustration and problems if you just realize that the “Law of Activity” is what activates and makes the “Law of Attraction” work.  In the crudest way I can put it, basically the Law of Attraction is not going to do anything for you until you work your rear end off at your profession or goal.

Expect miracles; just do not expect them to happen overnight! Miracles do happen and although I am a firm believer in divine intervention, the basis of miracles are the results, the after math, the positive consequences if you will, of doing the right things that are headed in the right direction over a period of time..  These are the three key ingredients miracles are made up of:

  1. Right actions
  2. In the right direction
  3. Consistently done over a period of time 

Violate any of these three elements and you will not see miracles in your life and business, you will see mediocrity at all levels.  What got me through many of winter storms is no matter how hard things got, no matter what the outside circumstances portrayed; with an iron will I forced myself to keep taking right actions, in the right direction, everyday.

What were those actions and direction I took everyday?  They are the three things I have been proclaiming for the past 10 years from the mountain top;

1. Keep marketing your business even when the marketplace is not buying your products   The marketplace always regains its appetite and that is why you keep going even when they are not feeding.  What do 97 percent of business people do?  Give up!

2. Exposure:  Keep exposing your business and what you do and you will meet the right contacts that will unlock the bank vault for you. You are one contact way from having the floodgates of cash flow to you.

3 Associations:  I love what Donald Trump teaches; the first step to success is going from being a nobody to a somebody.  How do you do that?  Do something with people who already are a somebody!

When it comes to business growth, we cannot control who will say Yes and who will say No to our offer, but what we can control is our daily activity of how many people we make that offer too.  We get into financial trouble when we expect growth without the proper marketing activity.

law of attractionOne of the most amazing people I have ever known in my life is my friend Manny and we have been best friends for the past 35 years.  Why Manny is so amazing is he is like a Bumble Bee, defying science.  According to the law of physics due to the size of the body of the Bumble Bee and its wing span, it is scientifically impossible for it to fly.  But don’t tell the Bumble Bee that because he does not know it, and so he just zooms in the air anyway.

Manny too defies all business logic in the way he dresses and conducts business.  How he runs an extremely profitable business is mind-blowing and beyond my understanding, in fact Manny himself did not understand how he did it.  So for more than 30 years we just named him “The Phenomena”  But then a couple of years ago it dawned on me his Secret.  This guy is never moved by the word “No” and he never stops marketing his business from the time he gets up to the time he goes to bed.

It does not matter where or who he is with, he is promoting his company non stop, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  Even if you have no need for his sign company, you are going to hear about his company and what he can do for you, even if you live under a bridge!

You can do almost everything the wrong way in business and still succeed beyond your wildest dreams as long as you daily use the Law of Activity in marketing your business.

Thank you for spending time with us today, we know your time is valuable and time is the only resource we cannot ever replace once its spent and that is why we strive everyday to bring you information that will make you think, laugh, maybe pass some gas, but most of all, Inspire you to be the best you can be and that includes your ability to produce value and earn money…lots of it!

Changing Lives Through the Power Of The Pen

Dr. Martin Luther King proclaimed “I have a dream”. This is the mantra of every published, self published and unpublished author.  The dream lives with them 24 hours a day because inside their heart is the burning desire to “change lives through the power of the pen”. 

Let me start off by telling you a true story… 

My mind races back to the early 70’s when I was just a child and would love to watch the Walton’s on T.V.  Perhaps my favorite character was John-Boy because I could identify with him wanting to be a writer.  Since the age of 12 years old I knew that I wanted to be a writer.  When I read an ad in a comic book, “How to Become a Writer” I rustled some money from my folks and sent for the home course.

I can still remember the day I got the package in the mail, my heart raced with excitement and my mind zoomed with adventure.  It was a brown soft bound book and when I started to read it, I remembered thinking, “I don’t have a clue what this book is saying.”  But it did not matter to me; just having that book gave me hope and inspiration!

It allowed me to feed my dream of someday becoming a published author, to have the ability to paint on the canvas of paper the words, thoughts, dreams and visions that would flood my mind on a daily basis.

That little brown unattractive home study course on how to become a writer fueled my passion to share my thoughts and words with the world.  It did not matter that I did not understand one word that course said, it was my point of contact to dream, and dream big!

I share that story with you because there are many reasons why people have a dream to write a book; however this is what I have learned,

Millions of people want to write a book.

Most have the ability, some have the drive but few have the know how.” 

Finding Your PassionHaving a dream to become a published author is a wonderful and powerful element.  Did my youthful dream of becoming a published author ever come true?  Many people have wondered about that.  Well, 33 years after I got that home study course in the mail I have had the good pleasure to have published 19 books and create the best selling The Power of Mentorship book series that now have over 200,000 printed copies in the marketplace worldwide.

Yes dreams are important and yes they do come true, but not by themselves.  You see, many people have dreams, but not every one has wings.  Dreams without wings stay grounded.

“Will my passion support me? If your passion has a plan, your plan will support your passion”

How do we put wings to our dreams?  By good old hard work; my good friend and best selling author Brian Tracy says it best; “Success is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent hard work”.

Did we say hard work?  Let’s make it clear that hard work is smart work, knowing what to do and how to do it to create the results you want.

“Working hard on things that don’t work, don’t

make them work”

If you have a dream of becoming a published author (or any dream for that matter) or if you are an author and want to sell more books, here are 5 important points to help you take that dream from your heart and turn it into reality.

1.        Find A Mentor.  Finding a mentor that can teach you how to get what you want is not only invaluable but a necessary ingredient to achieve your goal and dream.  It will save you years off the learning curve and save you thousands of dollars of costly mistakes.  When I went to my first mentor to teach me how to do a book series he asked me; “do you want to do this as a hobby or a business?  I responded I do not know?  He looked at me and said get out of my office; if you are not going to treat this like a business you have no business doing it!  That was the key advice that allowed me to create our highly successful book series.

Another book mentor of mine was the late Charlie Tremendous Jones.  I remember when we came out with our second Power of Mentorship book I put on the cover volume two.  I had already approved the cover, and the cover was done.  Charlie told me; get the word volume off that cover.  I said “why Charlie, it looks so good?”  He said if you keep it there it will hinder your sales.  Charlie had been in the book business for over 40 years and his mentorship proved once again to be invaluable.

2.        Get into an anthology. One the best ways to start your publishing career as well as boost an existing one and sell more books (if you currently have one) is to become published in an anthology.  An anthology is book that is composed of contributing authors or what I like to refer as “co-authors”. 

There are a number of anthology books on the market today that will give you the opportunity to be part of the book; however the best ones to be involved with are those who have best selling authors that are part of the contributing authors.

The keys to writing success is positioning yourself as an expert, establishing your credibility, massive exposure, and developing your brand.  Anthologies help you do exactly that especially those that have best selling authors that are part of that group.

3.        Keep your writing dreams alive.  If you have a dream to become a published author, you and you alone will have to be the “keeper of the flame”.  It will be up to you to stay excited, fuel your passion and fan the flame.  Your mentor can give you the plan; you however must supply the drive.  How strong is your desire to write?  How much passion do you have to get published, have a book and get your message in print form?   Only you can answer these questions and the answers will determine if you are willing to put wings to your dream or allow your dream to stay grounded.

4.        Take action now.  When I go speak in a certain city, I always have people come up to me and tell me they are in the process of writing a book, or plan to write a book.  What always amazes me is when I visit that same city the next year or so, 95 percent of those same people who told me about their writing dreams have done nothing to towards making them a reality.  Dreaming is worthless unless you add action with it.  My mentor Bob Proctor taught me how to make decisions based on what I want, not what I think I can do, not what circumstances dictate to me or what my bank account tells me what I can or cannot do. 

Start taking action now, today, and the plan, the people and resources will always show up along the way.

5.        Know your purpose.  You must know what you want and why you want it.  Many people know what they want, but when it comes to analyzing why they want it they become clueless.  Know why you want to become a published author.  It is because you have a burning message in your heart that you fill compelled to get out into the market, a desire to help people through the power of the pen, to sell a lot of books and create a fortune?  These are all worthy and honorable goals.  Whatever your reason, whatever your purpose is to become a published author know them and you will be well on your way to making your dream come true.
