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.

“Ignoring People”

iStock_000005631616Medium

Never use “Ignoring People” as a way to say no to their request or offer. This will build you a reputation of being low class, non professional and a flake.  Now none of these may be true of you but those labels will stick on you like super glue to ceramic if you “Ignore” peoples calls texts, and or emails because you don’t know how to tactfully say “No Thank”.  You have every right to say yes or no to whatever anyone asks of you but in the world of business and life you must learn the “Art and Skill” of knowing when and how to say no.

The easiest way and most used way to say no by non professionals is too “Ignore” the follow up from people.  But professionals use the skill of saying no thank you that not only strengthens the relationship but takes it to the next level of increase for both parties.  This is just one skill we teach all our Mentorship Students.  Once you get the reputation that you respond to every follow up request you will never have to worry about customers or clients, business or income because you will have more than you can use for the rest of your life.

Professionals always say “Yes” even when their response or reply is “No Thank You”.

If you are ever going to “Ignore People” the professional way to do it is contact that person and thank them for being part of your network but due to current conditions you are now deleting them from your circle.  The good news is, if you are a Professional before you ever have to come to that state they will have already dropped you, deleted you and took you off of their Facebook page.  We get lots of people who we know de-friend us off their facebook due to our posts. 100% of them are broke, bitter, and angry and can’t deal with all this success talk.

Never get so low in life that it makes you bitter toward people.  We all struggle with the issues of life, we all have challenges but we can choose to be “Bitter” or choose to get “Better”.

As much as I would like to personally sit down with you and chat about your goals and dreams over a fresh Latte I know that is impossible due to time and distance. However, let me do the next best thing, I will ship you a gourmet Latte along with a questionnaire about your business goals and dreams and you can send that back to me and I will respond with some ideas.  Just send me your shipping address and I will get you the gourmet coffee and questionnaire right out to you.

“Leadership Is Not Permission to Dominate, Leadership Is Permission to Protect”

When I look back over the past 34 years of my career I realize that all my Mentors did one thing and that was to help me focus on becoming a “Proficient Leader” for each one knew that Leadership is the foundation of all wealth and success.  They also knew Leadership starts at home, with you.  I was trained at 19 years old by my Mentors on leading myself to develop discipline, excellence, vision, determination, persistence, faith, honor, loyalty, courage and class.  I had to lead myself in these areas before I could ever develop to a point that I could lead others. 

“Challenges Make the Strong Stronger and the Weak Weaker”

Therefore Choose to Be Strong! In whatever profession you are in your ultimate goal is to take on the role and move into the position of leadership. However, many people mistake management for leadership and that is a deadly mistake if you are in the “Team Building Business” which is one of the highest paid professions in the world.  They say if you are a leader and no one is following you then you are simply taking a walk. The true role of leadership is anything but glamorous but in fact one that is of service.  Leadership is many times a very lonely road.  While others are home resting you are up working late into the night and early morning to help and be a service to people.  It is a role that is undervalued and underappreciated.  Most of the time you are the first one to a meeting (setting everything up) and the last one to leave (cleaning everything up).

The crowds enjoy all the value you bring and the service you provide and after the party is over they zoom out with their presents without saying thank you.  This however is a very small price and sacrifice in comparison to knowing that as a true Leader you are changing lives and creating destinies for good people.  And just to put the icing on the cake, it pays so well in income that you will live like a King or Queen with Financial Freedom!  Use your business to “build people” don’t use “people to build your business”!

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”

“Strike Gold”

Gold

“Strike Gold”  Millions of people flood into Las Vegas and hit the gambling tables and slot machines with high hopes and intentions of “Striking Gold”.  It is a sad and pathetic system that lures the ignorant into more financial misery, debt and hopelessness. Those that take that route, I don’t blame (not approve) them for trying to drink the pain away.  However, there is a much better and easier way to “Strike Gold” and that is to acquire it one gram at a time.

I have been acquiring Gold since 1980 and the joy and thrill of getting another piece of Gold is unlike any other feeling you can imagine.  To see your wealth grow one Gold gram at a time is exciting, rewarding and most of all profitable.  I am still amazed to watch how Wealthy people amass their fortune, and how financially challenged people blow their money.

Wealthy people are those who build their assets…then build their lifestyle.  I encourage people every day to earn as much money as you can in the field of your choice only take a little of that money and save it in Gold.  If you got on a saving plan of just getting Gold one gram at a time (about $65.00) you could save your way to a financial fortune.

Gold in your bank feels a lot better than having nothing in your bank.  Don’t wait for things to improve, make the improvements now by acquiring some Gold.  I assure you in the very near future you will be glad you did.

“Strike Gold” it’s in your power…one gram at a time.

Your Financial Dream

sunshining

The number one reason why most people never reach their financial dreams and goals is due to a deep rooted negative belief about money that resides in the subconscious part of the mind that is not detected by the conscious mind.  In other words what we know intellectually is completely different from what we believe inwardly in our heart.  Let me give you a real example of what I mean.  I have people swear up and down that they want financial freedom so I start my dialogue that goes like this:

Don: Do you see the importance and wisdom of spending less than all you earn?

Dud: Absolutely!

Don: Do you see the value of saving a little bit of money each month and putting that into stronger money like Gold?

Dud: Absolutely.

Don: Could you save just a small portion of your income each month and keep it for yourself?

Dud: Absolutely.

Don: Will you start on that plan to get the financial freedom you said you want?

Dud: Not right now…

This is actual conversations I have with people.  On the surface this sounds like complete insanity until you understand how deep rooted beliefs that we do not even realize we have keep us stuck in the financial conditions we hate.  This is why many high income earners are on a mission to spend everything they make even though they desperately want to stop.  I have had lunches with high income earners who want to stop spending so much and at that very table go through $100.00 on high end alcohol drinks.  The point is not the money they spent on alcohol, it is the objective they want is directly opposite of what they do.  This once again is due to the inner beliefs about money.

When people tell me they are in financial conditions they don’t like I ask them if they want to do anything about it.  They always say yes but rarely do the simple things to change it!
