There is more to success than meets the eye. I have made up my mind to do what it takes to be successful many many times. Hasn’t happened yet though…and I just can’t figure out why. I have been through countless courses on the subject, I have started yet many more courses on it, nothing seems to work. And I have no idea why.
Something is missing, and I can’t figure out what it is. I have read think and grow rich many times, read and listened to Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins, T. Harv Eker, Jeff Olson, and dozens of others. It does not seem to make a difference though…
So…time to switch strategies! I have a bad habit of sticking to a non functional strategy far too long before deciding to change courses. I also have the bad habit of not believing in myself. Another one is this: I am lacking boldness and decisiveness to just throw myself into it and start. I hesitate and procrastinate for some reason. This has become better lately though as I am aware of it and force myself to take action more than I used to.
Another thing I do is hold on to stuff I should share with the world. This is because I come from a home where it was considered positive to live modestly and be poor. That was something my father admired.
He often said “A house should never be finished”…he always wanted to have something half done.
He also often said “You can never have just the right amount of work, you always gotta have more than you can handle, cause if you have just the right amount, you don’t have enough to do”.
To me though this is completely insane. So I guess I have come a long way from where I was.
You see, if you never finish things and get them out of the way, you can never have space and energy to take on new tasks, and get new things. And lack of renewal leads to stagnation.
As for the other one “You can never have just the right amount of work to do, you always gotta have too much”, this is also completely insane. How the heck can you have time and money freedom if you always have too much to do? How the heck can you live a balanced and fulfilled life if you always have the feeling you should work? How can you have freedom of mind and take charge of your own life, having energy, love and attention to give to others if you always have thoughts about what you should be doing instead?
Like I said, something is definitely wrong here. And I am going to find out what and make it right so I can continue growing into the person I want to be.
I had a talk with my wife last night before going to sleep. She said something that I instinctively reacted against. But now after thinking about it for some time and sleeping on it, she is absolutely right. I have promised to be a success for so long, people are starting to lose faith in me. People don’t believe me anymore. They think I am lying to myself and everyone else having these crazy high dreams for myself and my family.
Let me tell you something, I am getting closer and closer to my dream every minute of every day, because what you give attention, energy, and focus expands into your reality. The trigger that makes it happen is Action. You have to take the right actions in order to get things going.
That action also has to be planned in the right way, you have to find a strong reason Why you want what you want.
Someone also once told me that writing down your goals, putting a deadline on it, and also making sure it is measurable is the only way to make them happen.
I am not good with deadlines and being specific cause I am afraid of committing. Maybe that’s the reason things have not happened yet.
If I push through this and start committing to my own future, being specific, setting specific goals with a deadline, then maybe things will change…
Let’s see…now I’m off to set some small specific goals with deadlines on them, and see to it that they gets done before the deadline. That will give me a positive experience of “What I say will happen actually happens! Yes!”. That is an experience I can use to build on as I push through to bigger and bigger goals.
Until next time…
I just made up my mind. For the umpteenth time since I first got involved in Network Marketing in 1984.
YES 1984, that’s …let’s see…26 YEARS AGO.
No more dreaming. Dreams can only get you so far. I have been dreaming for so many years I have lost count. No more. The dreams have shifted into a burning obsession of making it happen.
I know, I have said this all before. Now is the time however. I will NEVER give up on my dreams. I WILL achieve the success I KNOW I am capable of achieving. This is something I HAVE to get out of my system before it explodes inside of me.
Have you ever had that feeling of not being able to sleep because there is something big that you just KNOW you HAVE to do in life. I have that feeling every night when I go to bed. I am now with a company that I KNOW will be the vehicle I can use to make my outrageously high dreams come true.
Let me know if you want to know more, and I will see if you are a person I can work with. I cannot waste time working with people hoping to make some money in MLM anymore. I need to make sure you are the RIGHT PERSON. And I refuse to chase you. YOU need to make sure you want it badly enough to make it happen. I do, and I expect you to also.
I’m outa here…
If you want to follow me to success, stay tuned…

“So, the question of “are you at risk” is really a question of “Are you out
taking risks?” Many times we are afraid to take risks and sometimes our
decisions are not really conscious all the time. Sometimes it’s really a

Here is an article written by my good friend and mentor Michael Dlouhy. If you want to participate in the 30 day cleanse process, there is a link at the bottom of this article.
When a great leader falls because of a lack of integrity, it is
very painful for all involved. Tearing another person down to
build yourself up, only leads to a false impression of yourself.
When someone is tearing others down in front of You this is
a guarantee they will do the same to You behind Your back.
Ultimately you will crash and burn from your lack of character.
The question is:
Would You Want This Person As Your Sponsor ?
Life can give us challenges in many areas of our life. How we
handle those challenges ourselves and who helps us, can
determine our success or failure. Loyalty to do the right thing
enters into all decisions. Friendships built on loyalty and trust
are like support beams for a foundation.
A foundation is the beginning. This applies to your marriage,
your friendships, your home and your business. If you build
them correctly, they will sustain you your lifetime. If you
build carelessly everything will crumble around you.
Leaders are built. Day by day, Lesson by lesson. When a
leader chooses to fall, they sacrifice their integrity, their
honor and their character.
If after knowing the facts and fully utilizing their “critical
thinking skills” when someone decides to leave Your Team
please wish them all the best.
Excerpt from “Launching a Leadership Revolution”
Foundational Leadership Quality: Honorable
Integrity can be considered as the condition of “not doing
what’s wrong.” Character can be defined as doing the right
things, for the mere reason that it is the right thing, even if
that thing is difficult and unpopular.
The two sewn together make honor. Author Jeff O’Leary,
in The Centurion Principles, writes, ” ‘Honor’ encompasses
the virtues of integrity and honesty, self-denial, loyalty, and
a servant’s humility to those in authority above as well as a
just and merciful heart to those below.”
Honor is such a rarely used word in our times that it seems
a little old-fashioned. But living a life of integrity and character
is timeless and, for a leader, absolutely necessary. It’s about
choices, and a person’s choices in life follow him to the grave.
Is this to say that a person needs to be perfect to become a
leader? Of course not. Perfection in this life is not possible,
and we, the authors, are certainly not exceptions. However,
a leader must strive continually toward perfection even though
she knows she can never exactly attain it.
It is a question of the heart. The most effective leaders through
out history have led with their hearts, in trust, and with honor.
If a leader cuts corners, misuses people, or misrepresents, the
truth, a time bomb begins ticking. Someday, somewhere, the
bomb will go off. It is obvious in our times only too often: public
figures at the pinnacles of power and fame crash and burn in
the cloud of self-inflicted shame. From political scandals to
high-profile corporate frauds, these calamities are brought
on by a lack of honor in the leadership.
“Human happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.”
The difference between leaders we revile and those we praise
is their individual level of honor. In fact, honor is the force that
holds a leader’s hunger in check.
Without honor, hunger runs rampant and ultimately serves
only selfish interests. Honor is the component that makes
hunger productive for the leader’s fellow man. In fact, what
we are basically describing here is another “old-fashioned”
George Washington said of duty, “Human happiness and
moral duty are inseparably connected.” So leadership is
spawned by hunger and held in check by honor.
Under that combination, leaders will find happiness in the
fulfillment of their duty to others. It has been said that the
character of a man is the only thing that will walk back
from the grave into the hearts of the people who knew him.
That is the legacy of a leader. The words a leader say and
the walk a leader walks must match. As the saying goes,
“Your word is your worth and your worth is your word.”
Andy Stanley, author of The Next Generation Leader, says,
“To become a leader worth following you must give time and
attention to the inner man.
To leave a legacy that goes beyond accomplishment alone,
a leader must devote himself to matters of the heart.”
Character is developed in the valleys and the peaks of life,
enabling a person to overcome obstacles and deal with
Abraham Lincoln observed, “Nearly all men can handle
adversity, but if you really want to test a man’s character -
give him power.” Character connects a person to what is
right and true.
If reputation is what others think of you, then character is
what God knows about you. This concept of honor is so
important to a leader because people will follow a leader
only as far as they feel they can trust him.
People will not follow a leader they can’t trust. According
to R. Ruth Barton, “We set young leaders up for a fall if
we encourage them to envision what they can do before
they consider the kind of person they should be.
” Warren Bennis tells us, “In the leadership arena,
character counts. I am not saying this casually, of studies,
observations, and interviews with leaders and with the
people near them…. I’ve never seen a person derailed
from [leadership] positions for lack of technical competence.
But I’ve seen lots of people derailed for lack of judgment
and character.” And, as Heraclitus said, “Man’s character
is his fate.” Finally, it should be remembered that a major
component of honor is personal courage.
Without the courage to do what’s right because it’s right,
regardless of ramifications to self, one is not truly worthy
to be called a leader.
When people don’t “Believe” they deserve Success they
will self destruct every time…. This is the reason we tell
everyone we meet to “Participate” in the 30 Day Mental
Cleanse if You want to own Your life.
