Short Cuts Never Pay!

Business people

Short Cuts never pay…they cost!  This is why my Millionaire Mentor never took them, nor ever tried to get the “Rock Bottom” price on anything.  He knew that “we get what we pay for” and knew that law cannot be manipulated or beat.  He said the way to the top both in riches and happiness is by buying the best and honoring its price tag.

If you look at the unhappiest people on earth both those who are broke and rich are those who are constantly looking to save a dime on everything.  It amazes me to see gas stations filled to the brim when they lower gas prices 3 cents.  The lines, the people getting mad, getting into fights over the pumps just to save 3 cents.  It’s a miserable way to live.

I felt the pain of this dysfunctional system the other day.  Our normal procedure in our warehouse is to ship all products out UPS.  Since I don’t work in our warehouse and I had a package to ship I thought I would just save some time and ship it out flat rate postal.  Hey it only cost $12.00 bucks what a deal.  The only problem was they messed up on the delivery, the customer never got his package, it made me look bad and I had to resend the package overnight UPS and it cost me $118.00.  It made my Mentors words 30 years ago ring out loud and clear; “Mr. Boyer never take short cuts in life and never worry about saving a dime, to do so will cost you a fortune”.

Look at your life and see if it is riddled with trying to take short cuts and save a dime here and there.  I am told that my mother never washed our cloth diapers (this was in the 50’s) she just threw them out. I guess this is why my father held down three jobs!  Her comments were, “I’m not touching that Mess”.  When it comes to taking short cuts in life and business and trying to save a dime, take on mom’s advice and say, “I’m not touching that Mess!”

“If you are a coach, speaker, trainer, author or Mentor it is your responsibility to do everything you can to become the best you can be, utilize and maximize every tool in our industry in order to help and reach as many people as you can.  This is the code of ethics of every true Mentor”

Are you Chasing the Carrot?

Business system and competition concept

Over the past 30 years working with thousands of people from a vast array of professions and the good fortune to work with the top international leaders in our industry it has allowed me to see a very clear pattern why 5% (5 percent) of people reach their dreams and 95% (95 percent) fail to reach them. It has nothing to do with the stars, mystery, luck, hard work in and of itself, spirituality, prayer, faith or anything else we would like to put the blame on.

Many success plans attempt to “Teach you how to Get There” (your dreams) however in this email I want to address what “Keeps you from Getting There” (your dreams).

Here are the top 5 things that keep the 95% (95 percent) chasing the carrot yet never getting it.

  1. All Talk No Action:  I am not sure if this is due in some cases from a nervous tic or it’s a soothing balm for the mind to ease the pain of lack and failure.
  2. Excuses:  My millionaire mentor told me 30 years ago I could make money or excuses but not both at the same time.
  3. Justification:  They become (angry and hostile) masters of convincing themselves that it’s not their fault for the lack of results and then go on a massive campaign to convince others of the same thing.
  4. Stay on the Same Plan:  Working hard on things that don’t work won’t make them work! Yet I see professionals circle the same failure path over and over until they drop dead.
  5. They Know Everything:  Someone once said if there was any topic you wanted to know about just ask a teenager…they know everything!  Sometimes we go from teenager to adulthood with that same behavioral pattern. 

In the past 30 years I have never seen anyone permanently damaged and could not make a comeback from taking a risk to follow their dreams.  In fact part of the equation of success is multiple failures better known as “education and training” to a higher level of living.  Every millionaire I know has had multiple failures, setbacks, bankrupted, disappointed, discouraged and the temptation to give up…but they didn’t and that is why the continued on to reach their dreams.  Take a look at these 5 failure traps and see if they are part of your life and if they are, dump them A.S.A.P.

Personal Economy

iStock_000003381479Medium

Wonderful Wednesday March 12, 2014

When it comes to your Personal Economy the best thing you can do to make it what you want it to be is to understand Seasons. There are other certain things you want to keep in mind and pay attention to as well.  For example;

  • Your opportunities are not limited, so why settle for a limited income? 
  • Most people spend way too much time focusing on the outgoing of their money, instead of putting all of their energies on the incoming of their money.  You will never get rich trying to cut back and save money.  Do not concern yourself too much with what you are spending, but on ways to improve what you are earning. 
  • Learn how to spend money, not save money.  Sure saving money is important and I think we should all be doing it, however, how you spend money is by far more important.  In order to spend money right, look at the results that spending will bring.   I will spend $100.00 at Barnes and Nobel without blinking an eye.  Why?  Because the knowledge I get from those books result in ideas that I turn into thousands of dollars in profits.  Over the past 30 years if I state that I spent $10,000.00 on buying lunches on perspective clients, it would be an understatement.  Much of all that money was wasted on clients who did not qualify for lunch.  Today, I take people out and will be happy to pick up the tab no matter how much it is, after they signed the contract! 
  • The biggest ROI (return on investment) that has worked for me is investing in marketing, exposure, building lead generating products, positioning myself as an expert, branding and associating with industry leaders. All this costs money, but it is little money in comparison to the big money it brings in.  I do not waste my money on conventional advertising when street smart marketing is so much more effective. 
  • Everyone wants to be associated with you if they know you are associated with the alpha dog.  You do not need to be the top gun; the big honcho you just need to be in association with them and people will be attracted to you like bees to a honey comb. 
  • Here is the most important information I can share with you in this email.  For the most part, the challenges many face today is not due from lack of competence, but stems from being unprepared for the inevitable down turn of the economy better known as the winter season.  From the time civilization begun to engage in commerce there has been cycles of lack and abundance.  It follows the natural rhythm of nature; spring, summer, fall and winter.  Financial shortage, lack of cash flow and money struggles today are not the byproducts of business failure, but failure to plan for the winter season. 
  • During the winter season, you plant much but reap very little. The ground is not conducive to produce an abundant harvest.  You labor much and produce little.   If you stocked your panty well in the season of plenty, you will have plenty in the season of shortage.  The problem for many is that they failed to stock the pantry in good times, and now when the land yields little for the much seed you plant, you have nothing to sustain you from your bare pantry.  There is a great lesson in the Bible about Joseph and the 7 years of plenty and the 7 lean years.  You should read it sometime. 
  • In the winter season if you did not stock up from the season of plenty, you engage and have to endure a survival experience until the winter season passes.  If you have a well stocked pantry you will Thrive in the winter season because it is a buyer’s market.  Things that cost thousands of dollars in the season of plenty can be purchased for pennies on the dollar in the winter season.  Why?  Businesses are not selling from a position of Thriving but rather from a position of Surviving. 
  • The best thing you can do right now is work smart; that means work hard to survive this winter season while you plant seeds to reap big when things change to a season of plenty.  But remember, just because it is a season of plenty does not guarantee you will prosper, nor just because it is a winter season guarantees you will suffer.  The steps you take, the relationships you build and the actions you put forth is the deciding factor of what you experience in a season. 
  • Whatever you do, know that you have the Power and Ability to change your Personal Economy to be what you want it to be.  Choose well my friend!

Business Is Not a Game!

groupbooksBusiness is not a Game!  In a game you have a winner and a loser.  Business should not be conducted where one wins and one loses and that is why true business is not a game but a relationship of service and mutual benefit to all parties.  Your life, business and income will go so much smoother and grow much more rapidly when we go about it with the “Service Mentality”. Now here is the real secret to that.  Your first priority service is to yourself and your ability to have all your needs met and become rich.yes I mean wealthy, Millionaire Status if you please.   When you learn to tap into the “River of Plenty” that God has designed and given you and all your needs are met, you will fly out of bed every morning with “Joy Unspeakable” and diligently seek who you  can serve, help and bless.   It’s when our financial needs are not met that business and life becomes a struggle.

All financial lack, or lack of any kind for that matter is simply due from
not understanding how to work the laws of life the correct way.  It is as
simple as that.  The good news is, you can lean and master them and turn things around in your life in a very short time.   Life is spectacular and designed to be enjoyed.  Does that mean challenges and roadblocks will disappear from our life?  Of course not, it just means you will find the Golden Gem in each situation in life and you will no longer look at things as problems but opportunities.   Let me give you an example of this;  I recently had to go onto taking insulin shots, which one has to give themselves right in the stomach every day.  When I share this with people in sincerity they say “I am so sorry”.  I share with them not to be because every morning I wake up and thank God for the insulin, I have so much “Gratitude” for medical science to help keep me healthy and live long. Without Insulin shots people with diabetes (who need the shots) would die without it.

With the insulin shots my body feels great and allows me to function
physically at my best!  I have had people tell me, “I thought you believed
in divine healing?”.  What do you think advance medical science is?  Do you think it comes from the devil?  Now, for the past 30 years I have been an advocate of natural living and health and for many years I had the wrong belief about doctors and modern medicine.   I still live naturally with vitamins and green products but now adding modern medicine to the plan helps me live life to the fullest.

Yes one could look at giving yourself a shot in the stomach as a horrible
thing, or one can find the Golden Gem and turn it into a thing of great
“Gratitude”.

I share this personal story with you today so that you can understand no matter what life throws at you, you can still Win!

Ingredients to Achieving Financial Dreams

One of the key ingredients to achieving all your financial dreams is to take excellent care of your health.  One down fall of many “type A” professionals is they fall into the trap of allowing their health go unattended as they vehemently pursue their financial and business intentions.  This is a big mistake.  Without your health, wealth means very little.  Here are few keys that Melinda and I practice to make sure we do everything we can to take care of our bodies.

1.      Earthing: There is a great book called “Earthing” which talks earhtingabout the health benefits of being grounded and in physical contact with the earth.  What this means is there are great health and healing benefits to walking barefoot on the grass, dirt and beach.  I walk daily barefoot at our park and it does wonders for the great feeling of vitality.

latte2.      Drink 1 Cup of Coffee:  Many medical studies show the health benefits of coffee and I drink the healthiest coffee in the world that is fused “Ganoderma” distributed by Organo Gold. I sent most of you some as a gift, if not let me know and I will ship you some.

3.      Reflexology: At least once a month (we like to go once a week) go have a Reflexology session done on your hands and feet.  The reflexologyhealth benefits are too numerous to share in this short email but they are dramatic.  Being Board Certified in Reflexology I know firsthand about this healing art.  The price range are from $15.00 to 60.00 for an hour session.

4.      Go Green:  Since the 1980’s I have been interested in natural
products both for cleaning and personal use.  The fumes and toxins in the average home is alarming. All the cleaning and personal care Eco-icon with green sailorschemicals are creating every kind of disease known to man including cancer.  I suggest you go completely green and natural, it will be the best thing you ever did for your health.  In 1990 a good friend helped me go green with his Melaleuca cleaning product line and I have been loving them ever since.  Fellow Master Mind Group member Patrick Fritzgerald is a great person to contact for this line of cleaning products. I will be happy to share his contact information with you.

5.      Exercise:  Join a gym, get out doors, do some yoga anything to keep your body fit and moving.  Whatever it takes.just do it.  If you follow a simple exercise plan you will be amazed how good you will feel.
Excellent Health is never an accident but a consequence of doing the right things to live longer!  Stay strong and keep moving on!

In Every Adversity

goldmedal

In every adversity, every set back, every disappointment lies a huge
blessing and opportunity, the only problem is we are not trained and
conditioned to see them but instead focus on the negative aspect of outward conditions.  For instance have you ever worked on a sale or contract and put a lot of time, work and money into it and have the prospects say yes we are ready to go and just when they are ready to sign the contract and the deal falls through?  If you been in business for any length of time you have had this happen more than once.  It would be easy to say, “Where is the good in that”?

Here it is.  It teaches and reminds you that money does not come from people but through people and the key to tap into the river of plenty is to realize our income comes from our thoughts about the money we desire not worry about if the deals go through.  As long as we forget about the outside conditions and keep the image of our vision intact the money, contacts and sales will come as sure as the Sun comes up in the morning.

Living an Extraordinary Life

overcomeHere are some tips that will help you live an extraordinary life.

1.      Find your talent (that which you love to do and are good at) and “Do It”.  Some call this your passion, and it is here that you will find your
joy, happiness, energy and monetary reward.

2.      Stop Wasting Time. Stop wasting your time with things and people that bring you no value.  Don’t compromise on this vital issue.  It will make the difference whether you live an extraordinary life or a mundane miserable existence.

3.      Every day you are investing in your Success or Defeat by what you do, what you say, what you think and who you associate with.

4.      Master the book “Think and Grow Rich”.  If you are not reading and studying this book on a regular basis you are not really serious about eliminating the things you don’t want and attracting and getting the things you do want.

5.      When you invest in you (your personal growth) the marketplace has no problem investing in your product line.at whatever price tag you put on it.

I like what fellow Master Mind Group Member Terence Winslow says.”Just Get It Done!”

Choose faith over fear, love over hatred, appreciation over selfishness, joy over sadness and forgiveness over anger.

Sit back, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee in your Millionaire Cup!  A big
cheer goes out to fellow member Kathi Bridge who sent me a photo of her “Millionaire Cup”.  Drinking from this cup daily will bring you
extraordinary money results!

5 Steps to Help you Excel in Life and Business

stock-photo-17026598-holding-the-sky

  1. Create your Future.  Most people try to rewrite their past instead of working on creating their future. Never waste time on the past, focus on writing your future. 
  2. Know your Currency.  The worst type of currency you can accept for your goods and services is “future promises of more business”.  When people start telling me if you discount your rate I can get you more work, I tell them just pay me my price and you can keep the future work for yourself.  Future promises of “more” rarely come through and that makes it bad currency. 
  3. Control your Thoughts.  Your thoughts are the instructions and blue prints you give to the creative factor of life that brings to pass your results and conditions.  One of the wisest men in the world said over 5000 years ago, (King Solomon) “as you think in your heart so you become”.  Your thoughts are one of the few things that we have total control over but most people exercise the least control of.
  4. Control your Words.  Life and death are in the power of your words was another life principle taught by King Solomon.  Take a moment and notice the words you are speaking.  God told us we can have what we say but most are saying what they have…think and ponder on that!
  5. Eliminate Fear.  Don’t be afraid of failure and don’t be afraid of success.  Life is designed to be enjoyed, explored, investigate, grow, expand and take it all in. Never allow fear to box you in or limit you in any way. Abandon fear and choose to live!

“Proper Education Pertaining to our Pursuit”

People Prospecting

We are just days away from bringing in a New Year.  For millions across the globe it’s like a massive marathon race.  Runners are excited they are pumped up, warming up, gearing up and ready to blast out of the gate to their Success Dreams on January 1, 2014.  This is all good and praise worthy however the studies show that less than four percent (4%) will reach their goals and seventy five percent will abandon their dreams after the first ninety days.

Why such a high rate of goal and dream fatality?  Because the majority base their New Year Journey on excitement, motivation, hope, and determination instead of the one main ingredient that we all need and that is “Proper Education Pertaining to our Pursuit”.  This is completely different from formal education.  Let me give you an example; more people will have financial goals this New Year of 2014 than any other type of goal, even higher than weight loss goals.

No matter how healthy or sickly your financial condition is right now, you should have financial increase and financial independence as one of your primary focus points for 2014.  That being said, most will fail in this pursuit due to a lack of “Financial Training and Education”.  You don’t need to learn how to manage money because of a lack of money but because of an abundance of money.

Here is an interesting fact: In 2012 President Obama paid 20.5% in taxes on approximately $3 million in income.  Governor Mitt Romney paid 14% in taxes on $21 million in income.  Who do you think is smarter when it comes to managing money and financial increase?  Instead of poor people getting mad at these facts, it should have prompted them to ask how Mr. Romney got so financially smart.

If you are serious about increasing your financial worth in 2014 I highly encourage you to contact fellow Master Mind Group Member Kathi Bridge.  She is one of the best money coaches on the market today who not only knows what she is doing but really cares for people.

I never endorse products or people based on money or payment, I refuse to do that (as many of you who have been with me for years know that) and I am not being paid a dime nor was I asked to promote Kathi Bridge.  I am doing so because I know she can help you come out of your money challenges as well as help you reach your financial goals. Do not let 2014 be a financial repeat of 2013 even if 2013 has been a financially good one for you.  Inflation keeps rising, the economy keeps sinking and you what to do bigger things this New Year so you need more money in 2014 than you made in 2013!

Visit her website today at www.KathiBridge.com

She offers a free consultation and will be able to share some fantastic insights with you.  You will find her a jewel as I have.

Unless you upgrade your financial education, financial increase will stay at bay…
