It’s Ok To Make Mistakes. Fail. Double Your Rate.

Each days of our lives, it’s inevitable we will make mistakes. However, everything happens for a reason, so we should never be afraid of making mistakes. What matters most is that we leave the past behind, and simply learn from it. Of course, try not to bounce back over the same mistakes. Admittedly, as human beings, we can repeatedly make the same mistakes. It’s a fact! None can deny it, even a perfectionist makes the same mistakes thrice :).

Plenty of us think in the form of “could of, should of” which will flash into your mind after making a mistake. Makes come and go. Failures come and go. I was once told by a mentor of mine Mr. Jim Rohn, double your rate of failure to really see results. Whether financially, health, or any situation you want to get a stat from.

My point is, it’s indeed a waste of time trying to figure out everything about a decision you made, and realized that it was a big mistake. If you could only turned back time, you would not make that same decision again…From the statement itself, if you could turn back time, the problem is that no one can turn back time. History repeat itself and it will continue to repeat itself. That’s the only chance you have to make the right decision, once the same scenario occurs in your life.

Lets talk about how we are being changed with our wrong decisions in life 🙂

At first we feel so upset, and useless. As if we want to simply sleep all day, hoping that when we wake up everything is under control.
Second, we feel guilty for committing mistakes, and worst, if someone has been affected by our wrong moves, we would not only feel guilty, we would surely feel like we want to burry ourselves.
Third, we want an instant change…we become very eager to change our identity.

The great thing is that once we’re done contemplating over our mistakes, and realize its time to move on, we become a better person, we become more positive, much stronger, much willing to face defeat, more appreciative over small things..and of course more forgiving. Yet, if we are the type of people who don’t welcome changes and corrections in life, then past should simply be left behind, or else we might do something terrible on top of our simple mistakes.

Leave the past behind, and let us not dwell on it but that doesn’t mean you’d be ashamed of the mistakes you have committed. You don’t have to be ashame of anything, for as long as you’ve learned from it and have already move on. Of course, it is also important that you have commited to make yourself a better person. Asking your mentor, your idol, your elders to teach you how they survive from all odds in life, will help you realize that life must go on, even after a shameful mistakes you have committed.

Surround yourself, with God fearing friends with very positive attitude. If it’s necessary for you to change your environment, so be it. Go for it! Read books about how to handle your consequences of your very own mistakes. Or read more about enhancing your personalities and dealing with your past 🙂 Live life to the fullest, you can only do that, if you will forgive yourself, and just learned from where you’ve failed.

To Your Abundance,

The Battle of The Mind

It’s hard to believe the fact that most people in this world think they are unhappy. I think this is because they never get content on what they have in the present. Some are  because they live in their minds, obsessed with events and situations in their past, or focusing on what has not yet come to pass from the future. They focus on the past or fearfully try to guess their future and thus end up manifesting more of the things they don’t like and dwell upon. Honestly, if you’re reading this now, and you realized my writings is already striking you to the fullest, then you better stop dwelling in the past. Further, when you live in your mind, you grow your ego. The ego can only exist because it was created by the mind, so the more present you are in the current moment, the more you diminish the control your ego has over your life.

I do believe that all of us have the power of mind. Whatever you believe, will truly come true. Of course, you need the guidance of our God. To feel truly happy you should learn to escape your mind. Escaping the mind is a hard thing to do because the mind will do anything it can to retain control. The mind can only really exist if it takes control and keeps you focused on things from the past or anticipation of things in the future. Try not to forget that the mind is important to us in our daily lives, but the extent to which it controls our thoughts and actions should be limited to those essential things in life. So in short, we must know which one is good to think of, and vice versa.

Most people dwell in what the mind creates to the extent that they lose focus on what the mind should and shouldn’t be associated with. Over time this leads people to feel empty inside. Do you feel empty? That emptiness or personal loneliness is caused by people forgetting or disassociating from their spiritual side – a person’s spiritual side isn’t necessarily associated with any religious doctrine but is based on a person’s feelings, intuitions and identification with the higher self. Do you have time for yourself alone?

There are lots of ways to keep a healthy mind. Reading books that enhances positive attitude. Watching movies that value happiness and success. Involving yourself to mind and body exercises, such as yoga and pilates. Try all my suggestions, and I bet, you will be addicted to it.  When you try to escape your mind, it will try to convince you that it’s better to keep dwelling away from reality. You will find thoughts following a topic your mind was working on, then dwelling in what has happened or what ‘could be’ without any of those thought processes contributing to improve your current situation. The mind will attempt to convince you that there are so many tasks you still need it to accomplish, preventing you from moving on and forgetting any of them. For example, if you are really upset about something you may feel this needs to keep entertaining the thoughts of betrayal and unfairness that have been inflicted on you in the past. It is important to know that it is just a thinking habit of the mind which keeps your thought processes focused on things that leave you unhappy. It just isn’t a necessity to keep dwelling on the thoughts of negativity as they contribute nothing to improving your daily existence.

People become so overwhelmed with their life situation that they lose the sense of being that makes them individuals, that makes them human. If you are carrying in your mind the burden of a myriad of wrongs inflicted on you in the past, or if you are dwelling on a multitude of fears seated in the future that have not been manifested, then you need to take stock of what your mind is doing to you. IN short, give yourself a break!

Coming to terms with the fact that you don’t need to focus on what your mind will make it easier to escape those thought processes that leave you unhappy. To escape your mind, and what it has created, you should pay attention to what is happening in the here and now. Being present in the current moment and observing what’s around you rather than focusing on your thoughts, is the best way to overcome the thought routine imposed on you through identification with the mind and its habituated focus on activities that essentially leave you dependent on a particular thought routine for your identity.

When you are completely present in the current moment, which we all should be at all times, you understand that, at this very moment, nothing bad is actually happening in your life. You can simply enjoy what is in front of your eyes. You pay attention to things you used to take for granted, like how wonderfully made you are, how blessed you are for existing despite of all the odds in your life. Just be thankful at all times, no matter what.

Many people completely disregard the beauty and wonders of the world that is around them. The faces of people you may see in the street are often gloomy, their daily stressors leaving them looking sallow and older than they really are. People often carry their mental burdens on the shoulders and in their necks, making them ‘hold’ their mental stressors in their physical body. All their locked in stress and tension is caused by their being prisoners of their own thoughts, being subordinate to their own mind and the object of its attention.

Lots of people are quite sensitive to the energies of other people as well as their own energy. It is quite easy to pick up on the energy of couple who have just had an argument despite the academy award winning performance they may put on for people in public. The negative energy involved in the creation of their argument carries over into the world long after the couple appear to be friendly.

It is easy to feel the fluctuations of your own vibrations as well as the energy of people around you. When you are present in the current moment, you vibration is really high. Past resentments and future fears have little influence over your current state of being. You could say that nothing bothers you when you are present in the Now. But as soon as someone goes into too much thinking they can feel the confusion from their mind setting in and your vibration going down. Energy can shift very quickly depending on what you focus on.

The only thing it takes to shift your energy to a more positive frequency away from the reality of routine and unhappiness is to centre yourself in the present moment.

Your mind is the only thing that keeps you down, although that may not look like it at that moment. You may think that it is this person or that particular circumstance responsible for your being upset. You may think that I would be happy ‘if’ or I will be happy ‘when’ I have this or that, but that is never the case. It’s your reaction to what happens to you which is responsible for level of happiness. It is more often than not the reactions of your mind to external situations that will mainifest in your unhappiness.

Being grateful for what you currently have in life is a very effective way of centreing yourself in the present moment. No matter who you are or what circumstances you are in, there is always something you can appreciate and feel grateful for. An attitude of gratitude is what makes you able to manifest better things in your life. So whenever you feel down, try as quickly as you can to escape your mind. Try the Gratitude Breathing Lesson as it is a very effective technique to use when feeling overwhealmed with what you mind has created.
Freedom from the Mind

Everyone in the developed world needs to escape from their mind. All the wisdom comes from the present moment and not from your mind. If you want to change your circumstances or solve some problem, the best way to do that is by staying present and then acting on your intuition that can only be accessed when you are present.

This article was written not through excessive thought, not from process of the mind, but from being centred in the present moment. When you tune into the present moment you access universal intelligence and intuitively accept things for what they are. The intuitive and higher self is responsible for the creation of this article.

So, what is the best way to overcome excessive identification with the mind, relief from the habituated negative thought processes created by the mind? The easiest way to overcome the control of the mind is to relax, stay present in the current moment and appreciate yourself, others, and the world around you for what it is. Appreciate everything that IS, for simply being what it IS, not what you think it should be. Do this, and you will be a happier person, and in control of your mind, not you mind in control of you.

Success in MLM is a Journey Not A Destination

Too often times I see a new person get into the industry of Network Marketing/Direct Sales/MLMs and they quit if they are not making money within 3-5 months. This can be quite a sad but true reality. A lot of times, people quit because they either don’t believe in themselves, they don’t believe in the company, or they don’t believe in the product. You have to understand that this industry takes time. Not everyone is an overnight success.

When I first saw this industry, I was 16 years old, and too young to be a rep. All I can remember is circles on a white board, and if you get 3 people in, and those 3 get 3 people in and so on, I’d be rich! What you come to realize is that it works if and only if you are mentally prepared. This industry, sales, is definitely a mindset. It’s a belief in you. 95% of this industry is YOU. You’re the missing link to making this work. If you did exactly what your mentor told you to do, and you got out of your own way, you’d be rich. Wouldn’t you? But there is one thing and one thing only that I’ve seen stop the average person wanting to make money in this industry…and that is…. “Procrastination”.  Their “Why”, reason why, they are seeking more is not big enough. Until that is determined and define on paper, the growth of their business will be minimal.

Oh yeah. Let me tell you. I am one to speak from experience. There are days when I do not want to prospect and pick up the phone. But wait! If I sleep at night knowing I did not share with someone my wonderful opportunity, I’d sleep feeling bad for myself and not a great feeling. When I sign up a rep, it’s because I’m in my game… my energy of juice is flowing and my mindset is on point that what I have is by far the best thing since slice bread.

So often times I hear it said over and over again. People do business with people they love and trust. When I got started in this industry in 1998, I had zero influence. I actually didn’t have any influence on anyone because I couldn’t see why people would buy me. You may be asking yourself that same question. Why would anyone buy and trust me? Here’s your answer. Because you are a great person, you are honest, and you are a “millionaire in training.” As a matter of fact, I encourage you to buy that license frame because you are a millionaire in training. You may have heard the phrase “fake it until you make it.” That is a phrase that I believe was developed by the broke mindset folks. Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, says, “you must see yourself as if you are already a millionaire.” Living the millionaire lifestyle. Tipping, posture, confidence and professionalism like a millionaire.  Avoid the poverty mindset and thinking the “lack of” whatever you are seeking. Until you got this ironed out, you will stay exactly where you are at because you choose it.

This is by far the most passionate topic that I have come to share because of how much I have changed over the years. It took me hitting close to rock bottom for me to take action in my finances. I chose this path even with a strong college degree. I did not want the lifestyle of a cubicle employee. It was not me and I came to realize that my time was worth more than anyone can hire me for at a hourly rate in this area. If you look up the word psychologically unemployable, you’ll see a picture of me :-).

I programmed myself to be this way. I had to because of where I saw the economy heading. We are at the right place at the right time in our industry. People right now around you are seeking more. More time, more money, more charities, etc. We live in a push button type society that we want things now and instant. The microwave shaped this out and if people don’t get that answer now, then they quit. Give yourself 3-5+ years to grow. It’s not only the money but the person that you will become in the process.

In closing, I heard it said once before. People die at age 25 (quit on their dreams) but they don’t get buried until they are 65. One of the saddest things you can do is give this industry a few months and quit. But people will spend $20-$100k+ to go to school for 4 years to get a degree to be a slave for 40years to someone else’s empire. 80% of the millionaires are made from the industry of Network Marketing. Don’t quit on your dreams. You deserve to receive it all. Become a student of this industry and make it happen.

The ultimate question that you can answer for yourself (let me know if you wish) is “If money was NOT an issue, what would you be doing with your time.” ß that question will absolutely open up the Dream Machine (your subconscious) and get your juices flowing again. Stay tune for the next step.
Your partner in success,
