Energy of Gold

Two gold bars

Never look to mankind for riches for if you do you will stop the flow of prosperity in your life and plug up the energy of money.  The reason being is that money does not come from mankind.  As long as you believe money comes from the marketplace and people you will spend a lot of time and energy trying to figure out how to “sell” and “market” that stems from the internal position of fear and doubt.  All prosperity and wealth comes from our Creator that has already provided and given it to us as well as the system of laws (law of attraction, law of vibration, law of sowing and reaping) to use to bring it to us.

For instance, the Energy of Gold contains one of the highest rates of wealth attraction.  Just owning Gold causes more Gold to be attracted to you, changes the vibration of your mindset and sets up a force around you that calls wealth to you.  God created the high rate of attraction in Gold when He created it in the Garden of Eden.  On the other side of the scale, paper money has very low and weak attraction power to it and that is why most people have a very hard time attracting paper money to them.  Think about it, people have a hard time attracting paper money not because there is a lack of it in the world.  Our government prints the stuff with no end in sight; there is no shortage of paper money.  Paper money has a low voltage of attracting power to it, and it gets weaker by the day because it’s devalued which means it’s full of negative energy.

The main reason most people struggle financially is because they have chose “paper money” over “Gold Money”

If you want to put the power punch of wealth creation and financial attraction moving your way make sure you start trading your low energy, low pulling, low attraction paper money into high attracting Gold money.  Why do you think all Rich people move much of their paper money into Gold money?

If you remember anything remember this…”Gold is a Wealth Magnet”.  Every week I discipline myself to turn a small portion of my paper money $65.00 into Gold Money and my Gold Vault keeps overflowing.  I highly suggest you do the same.  Get off your paper Assets and sit on Gold!

With my simple easy to use system of turning $9.00 a day, $65.00 a week of weak paper money into Gold Money Nobody has any Excuse!

How you can become a Board Certified Mentor

The Mentors Code of Ethics

Raising the bar of excellence, performance and accountability in the Self-Help Mentorship Industry… 

“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”

“Gold Rush Booms”

Gold

I want you to stop and realize for a moment that 2014 is now half gone.  With half of the New Year gone you must take a serious look at your financial conditions and ask yourself if you are hitting your money and business goals so far.   If the answer is no you have to seriously shake yourself and do something about it.  Before you blink we will be in December and do you really want to go through another struggling Christmas?

Right now we are in one of the biggest “Gold Rush Booms” since the late 1800’s but here is the big difference.  In the old Gold Rush Days it was the common working class that had the wisdom to sell all they had and seek to acquire Gold but in this 21st Century “Gold Rush Boom” it is the wealthy people who are stashing not the cash but the Gold.  However this great new Gold Rush Boom is not available just for the rich but the average income earner who has the wisdom to turn a small amount of their “weakly paper money” into Gold Money.  If you will just look at the history of prosperity you will realize that “Gold” was the central theme.  It started in the Garden of Eden when God created Gold and called it “Good”.

The rich are not buying and saving Gold because the price is going up but because the paper dollar is going down!  If you understand that statement you will not only save yourself from financial disaster in the near future but become financially independent.  I can understand that you can question my view point because I am not a “Financial Adviser” and although I have been heavily buying Gold Bullion since 1980 here is a Gold Expert you should listen to.

Nick Barisheff, CEO of Bullion Management Group, controls over $550 Million in physical gold, silver and platinum…

Here is what he says about Gold prices over the next few years:

$10.000 oz. Gold   http://www.karatbars.com/?s=donandmelinda

I want to acknowledge and congratulate all our followers who have contacted me to find out how we transfer just $65.00 of our paper money into Gold money each week that enables us not only to create financial freedom but to stockpile real wealth in Gold Bullion. Once again I invite you to contact me to let me show you how you can implement a simple plan that pays you for saving your money in Gold and sharing your knowledge with others.

“Reality Changer”

Creativity

What you don’t know is what is stopping you and keeping what you want from you.  This is why the weekly studies we give all our 1 Year Mentorship students to study (called module one) is the most important pillar of our entire course.  Neglect that part and you abandon and abort your dreams, goals and progress.  How can you make a cross country trip if you refuse to put the gasoline provided for you in your car?

We have been taught wrong how to live right. How do I know this? Look at your results.  We need to learn a new way to live better and the faster we acknowledge this fact the quicker we can start changing our current reality.  One thing I do every day is work on my “Reality Changer” sheet.  This is a sheet that I write down things how I want them to be and then keep my focus there.  As long as I keep my focus on how I want things to be I don’t have to try to go out and kill myself trying to get the things I want.  It’s a secret marketing method I call “Mental Marketing” and it produces the most amazing results. What I have found is that you can literally “Think Your Customers In” which is nothing more than what Mr. Hill preached over 80 years ago when he wrote “Think and Grow Rich”.

The Death Traps of Business

My early Mentor taught me a valuable lesson when I first started out in business.  He told me…”Never Get Excited About Anyone or You Will get Discouraged with Everyone”.  .What he was referring to was the acquisition of customers.  This is especially true for those in the Network don and brianMarketing Industry. For many Network Marketing people they join the industry only to almost instantly drop out because they launch their business on excitement only.  Of course excitement is important however, it is not excitement that produces success in business its systems that produce the success.

You see, excitement is a very tricky.  You can go to sleep with a heart and head full of it (excitement) and sometime in the middle of the night while you are asleep it will grow wings and fly out your window leaving you to wake up in the morning saying “What in the hell did I just get myself into?”  If you are going to be in business bee it traditional brink and mortar, Internet marketing or Network Marketing there is a foundation rule you must understand completely from the get go and that is…

“Business Is Not Designed To Make Money…

Business Is Designed To Create Wealth” 

Business is not designed to make you money it is designed to create you wealth.  Jobs are designed to make you money not create wealth for you.  Unless you understand that, know for sure business is going to be a rough and deadly road for you.  With the super high failure rate in business I want to share with you the “12 Death Traps of Business”.  Learn them well and you will do well in business, fail to learn or respect them and your chances to fail are inevitable.

Know Your Death Traps.  It is vital up front to understand the death traps, pit falls and circumstances that will destroy your business, dreams, income, future and make you quit.  The issue is not could these traps come, know right now…They Are Coming and they are Coming After You!! 

Death Trap #1  Trying to sell products and business opportunity to people.  We are not in the selling business; we are in the “Finding Business”. We are in the decision collecting business.

Death Trap#2 Getting discouraged when friends, family and strangers are not interested in what we offer and say No.  This business is not for most people so expect a no…from most people. But the good news is, there are enough people who will say Yes to our offer to make us rich!

Death Trap #3   Caring if someone says Yes or No to our business or product.  If you care if someone says yes or no you will get discouraged and quit your business.  Your attitude needs to be “Yes or NO, I have to Go”. It makes no difference if someone says yes or no, because we know who we are looking for.  You always take an attitude of control and never one of desperation.  Put a big sign on your wall that says

“I Refuse To Beg Anyone to Join My Million Dollar Business.”

Death Trap #4  Not using tools but using your mouth to build the business. Big Mistake. You will talk to much, confuse your prospect and not know how or when to shut up and drive people away. You now own a professional million dollar business that comes with state of the art business building tools.

Death Trap #5  Signing up anyone that has air in their lungs. The fastest path to failure and misery is signing up the wrong people on your team.  We are not looking for flakes, complainers, fault finders, know it all’s, whiners or butt holes; we are looking for the professionals wanting and willing to work for their dreams. When we expose someone to the business, they are not evaluating us we are evaluating them to see if they qualify to be on our team and business.  I have a mental sign in my head that says, “Quitters Need Not Apply Here”.

Death Trap #6  Not using the system that has already proven to work but instead trying to do things your way.  Just follow our proven system because it works.

Death Trap #7  Not listening or investing the time and training you need to build this million dollar business.

Death Trap #8  Working for money.  This business is not designed to make you money; it is designed to create you wealth and financial freedom.  Jobs are designed to make you money and keep you broke while you build your employers wealth.

Death Trap #9 Talking to the wrong people in our family and circle of friends. There are some around us, who love us but can’t stand it if we succeed at something and will do everything they can too pull us down with their words, laughter, and actions.  If you know they are like that, skip them, keep your sample for another and move on.

Death Trap #10 Not Keeping it Simple.  Our business is simple. All we do is pass out information, answer questions, and collect a decision. That is it!  Do you drink coffee? Try mine I think you will like it!  The great temptation you will have to fight off everyday is making this simple process complicated.

Death Trap #11  Never listen or allow anyone to speak negative to you about your business that is not a millionaire in this business.  Never listen to anyone who does not have what you want.  The biggest mark of losers is they want to give out a lot of free (worthless) advice.  Don’t be afraid to tell people who talk negative about our industry…”If I listen to you I would have to stick my head up your butt with you and I am not willing to do that, Thank you”. 

Death Trap #12  Forgetting what the death traps are.  Make sure you master and know your enemy because if you don’t they will destroy you, your wealth, dreams and future.  Know these death traps inside and out and you will never fall prey to them.

There is only one way to fail in this business and that is by quitting.  If you do not quit you cannot fail.

How to Turn Complete Strangers Into Paying Customers with an e-Book.

The E-Book Marketplace Phenomena is truly the Average Persons businesswinning ticket to a Famous Persons Pot of Gold!  E-books have now created the opportunity for those with very little former Celebrity Status to capitalize on the wealth of the world.

Let me start off by telling you a true story;

My mind races back to 1970 when I was just a kid 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 remember 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!

Finding Your PassionLike me, many of you have a gift, and burning desire to write and share you message with the world.  And for the past 100 years many have went to their grave with their books still inside them because the publishing industry did not provide a general platform for them.  How many great books and stories get buried and never make it into the marketplace because of a lack of a publishing platform?

That has now all changed due to the E-Book Phenomena, E-Book Readers and the new market that is now demanding E-Books!  Here are some very interesting facts for you to hang on too:

  1. Authors who publish their books via E-book format are now being recognized as legitimate published authors by the marketplace, which is the most important audience to have credibility with because they are the ones buying your books. 
  1. In the printed world of publishing you became a recognized author if you have one book in the marketplace: but in the current trend of the E-Book Phenomena the market place is looking for Quantity of books from a single author.  If you are going to make your mark and grab your share of riches from the E-Book market you will have to have MEB; multiple E-Books on the market. 
  1. The new E-Book market demand has many opportunities; however it has very precise rules in order to win in this game.  You need certain insights, networks, and tools.  It is like going to a lake jammed filled with fish, but if you go to the lake without a fishing pole, bait and proper equipment, you will go home empty-handed and an empty stomach.  The lake can be completely filled with fish, but they are not going to jump out and into your pocket.  The same is true with winning in the E-Book Phenomena. 
  1. Because the wall of publishing has been broken down, there will be an infinity of new E-books and E-book authors hit the marketplace within the next 12-24 months. Talk about a stampede!  This does create a Serious Problem; Market Overload, and giving the marketplace an infinity of choices.  You think there are a lot of titles on the market now you have not seen anything yet.  Ok, the problem now becomes, how do you not get lost in this over load of available book selection?  What will cause the marketplace to choose and buy your book over the other millions of choices that will soon becoming their way?  I will give you the Secret on point 5. 
  1. Establish yourself right now while the marketplace for E-books is in its infancy, before the market gets flooded.  You have a chance right now to create your name and brand as a marketplace giant.  Your name can be the next McDonald’s among millions of hamburger joints, the next Disneyland among the countless unknown theme parks, the Kleenex among tissues.  Here Me Now; This can only be done if you act Now, before the stampede of E-books start to flood the marketplace.  If you start right now, invest in this industry today, you will rise high and be remembered by the marketplace as a Name Brand in the E-book trend.  When the marketplace gets saturated with E-Books, those entering the market will get lost in the massive crowd of E-books, but you will be remembered and will have the magnetic attraction with the consumers. Why?  You established yourself early, while the marketplace was in its infancy.  You established marketplace attachment and your reward will be a financial fortune indeed! 
  1. The very best way to start your cycle of wealth and branding in the E-Book Marketplace is through association with Best Selling Authors that are already established in the printed publishing world.  The reason; The marketplace has always asked this question, but it has intensified with the new E-Book market and that question is; Who Are You?  What you have to understand; (wow this is gold, I should be charging a king’s ransom for this information, and I really am not sure how much longer I am going to be giving this information away for free)  

What you have to understand is that the E-Book market is brand new and in a hot wild frenzy and they are blind.  Therefore, they are gravitating groupbookstowards people and names they recognize.  Best Selling Authors and Leaders are like a gigantic magnetic force that this new market is following and clinging onto.  If you are in association with them, your boat will be filled with riches too as the marketplace buyers gravitate and cling to them.  I hit upon this concept of aligning oneself with Industry leaders and Bestselling authors back in 2005 when I launched the Power of Mentorship book series, that by the way now has 24 titles and more than 200,000 copies in the marketplace worldwide (sorry for the plug).

This concept of working with established names was the driving force of the success of our book series, and that was done when the marketplace was calm and mild and no intense, insane demand for books like there is now for E-Books.  There was no market demand frenzy then.  The need for association right now is Imperative if you are going to cash in on this E-Book Phenomena, Brand yourself and make your mark before the market is saturated.  Here is the truth;  New Markets that change society and how we function in our personal and business life is so Rare, and unusual only about 1 percent of all people profit from it because the average and masses of people just cannot see it or conceptualize it.  It is way too big for them to even comprehend the enormity of this opportunity.

Here are some examples of Life Changing Opportunities that have passed to profit from for the average person:

  1. Home Computers
  2. Cell Phones
  3. Search Engines
  4. Internet Technology 

These are products that are less than 25 years old!  Yet when the market first developed for these items, the average person could not even comprehend the possible business opportunity they offered.  The E-Book Phenomena and Marketplace will be the exact same way.  When the average person sees the opportunity and jumps in, all the prime spots that create fortunes will be gone and they will be left to fight for the crumbs with the masses.

  1. Being in association with recognized names creates another problem.  They are now harder than ever to attain.  From advanced years to illness to the passing of legends the opportunity window to link with industry leaders is rapidly growing smaller and smaller.  Getting a testimonial for a book or a project from recognized leaders has always been a challenge, but was doable with persistence and the right connections.  Try going after one today, they are getting rarer by the hour.

As you can see, we are only hitting the tip of the Ice Burg on this E-Book Phenomena that will create more millionaires and lasting fortunes since the dot-com boom, which by the way is gone for good.  That was a temporary trend with a limited market opportunity that only those with keen eyesight seen and took advantage of.

There is a ton of information on this new awakened E-Book giant marketplace that has a bottom-less appetite for E-Books.  This is a giant that is, and will be creating future fortunes and new millionaires in 2013 and beyond.  Will you be one of them?

Special Note: Relax…When you see my offers they are designed to give you the essential tools and resources you need to help you achieve everything you desire.  Here is where the “Relax” part comes in.  You will only respond to our offers when the “Timing” is perfect for you and not a moment sooner…I Guarantee It!   

When someone does not respond to an offer it is simply because the “timing” is not right for them, and when they do respond it’s because the “timing” is perfect for them and both situations are a good thing! So relax and feel safe reading our resource offers, it’s not about selling its all about timing and you are in control of that not me.

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.
