“Are Your Dreams Worth Fighting For?”

 

“If you don’t have dreams you’ll end working for people who do”

~Jeffrey Combs

We all have dreams of becoming someone successful in life. We want to be a person of influence that contributes to the lives of others in some major way. Perhaps you want to be a good politician that serves the people, not special interest groups. Maybe you want to be an entrepreneur that creates products or services that will positively serve  the global community. Whatever you desire to do, starts with a dream. Dreams and vision is what inspire common men to accomplish uncommon things.

A dream is nothing more than an idea that has not yet come to fruition. The more attention and focus you give to it, the more it expands in your mind to become a reality. The ability to imagine and create is one of the things that separates human beings from animals. It’s one of the reasons we are the crown of God’s creation.

Unfortunately, many people today, have given up on their dreams. They gave up the great to settle for the ok. The quote says, “if you don’t have dreams, you’ll end up working for those who do”. There is nothing wrong with working for others, but there is something wrong with coming to the end of life with regrets. I truly believe that no man wants to reach the end of his life, never giving himself a chance. Sadly, this the case for many individuals. They never give themselves a chance and they allow their excuses to be bigger than their why.

Any dream worth having, is a dream worth fighting for. It’s easy to say that doesn’t work, it’s easy to say i’m not cut out for this. It’s easy to say I come from the wrong environment so I won’t succeed. Napoleon Hill, the author of “think and grow rich” says “what the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve”. It has nothing to do with your background or anything else external.

In conclusion, birds of a feather, flock together. Never let anything or anyone affect your dreams. The minute you do, you have given up on your hopes, aspirations and desires to be successful. Surround yourself with people who get it. These are people who think uncommonly as yourself. Allow your dreams to take you to the top because the bottom is always crowded.

8 MLM Marketing Tips For Success

image

There are 8 MLM Marketing tips that will help you succeed in your network marketing business. It doesn’t matter what company you’re in or what product you’re selling. These tips are confirmed by every top earner in the industry, and will work for you. So here we go.

Target Market

You must be crystal clear about who your target market is. If you’re selling jewelry, it is highly unlikely that your target audience is looking to save money on energy. You must be crystal clear about who your target market is. There’s an ole saying that goes if you target everyone, you’ll hit no one. Everyone is not a good fit for your business and every person is not a prospect.

Chasing friends and family

We’ve all been guilty of this common mistake. Fortunately, I’ve had success with getting some friends and family to support me in business. However, I know from dealing with other siblings and relatives who said no, that the method of chasing them doesn’t work. Most family and friends want to see you make a million dollars before they join since you  them that you were going to make seven figures in a year. If they do get started, they expect to do nothing. You’re better off chasing a rabbit and catching it than chasing friends and family members and getting them to join.

Establish your why 

Everyday you need to remind yourself of your why. This is especially true when things are going well in business. You will have times in your business where no one is not signing up. So you need to have a strong why and realize that your why will bring you closer to your wishes. Most people don’t have a strong why. They why is why try it for now and see how it goes. If it doesn’t work, I’ll ask why can’t I have my money back? So their why turns into a why bother. Establish your why and be firm with it.

Personal development

A lack in personal development is the reason why people don’t stand on their why. Everyday we should be reading something that will keep us strong and motivated. The reason people quit is because they don’t have the mindset of a winner. A winner sees himself winning even though things in his life may appear that he’s losing. You must walk by faith not just spiritually, but mentally in regards to business. Your daily actions must support your faith. In actuality, personal development is derived from spiritual development. Develop your business mind with personal development and mindset training. Youtube, barnes and nobles is filled is relevant material that will assist you in this area.

Stay consistent

It’s not what you do once that gets you the prize. It’s what you continue to do day in and  day out. You must consistently expose people to your offers. Whether you choose to market or prospect, you must have some kind of daily action step. Unfortunately, most people take action a few times then stop for a longer period of time. Be consistent and persistent until you get what’s yours!

Maintain your focus

When I was with the Department of Corrections, I had a weapons instructor who used to always tell us to maintain your focus and discipline. He told us this because the  duties of a CO are very demanding. As a network marketer, you must maintain your focus. Meaning, have tunnel vision like focus. Don’t spread yourself thin trying to master every marketing strategy. If you are just starting out, use one paid and one free strategy. Otherwise, you will be a jack of all trades but a master at none. Maintain your focus.

Social media 

Social media should be included in your daily business activities. Network marketing is about building networks of relations. You want to surround yourself with people of like mind. As you do this, over time, some relations will turn to business partnerships. Social media is also a great place to build your brand. The more you build your brand, the more authorized you become. Most successful entrepreneurs have their space on social media.

Provide value 

To gain the attention of your prospect, you must provide value. This is true if you want to stand out. Your company link is no longer enough, especially if you are building online. The best network marketers create content. They know that many people  have struggles so they address those concerns. Providing value is about providing good content. Content is anything that adds value to the reader’s life.

In conclusion

These eight MLM marketing tips will assist you in your business. Success in MLM requires a bit of ingenuity. Today’s network marketer must be educated and unique. You are not selling your products, you are selling yourself. Our profession is a business, not a scheme or a thing.  Respect this business, and the business will respect you.

One of the challenges people have is getting out of their comfort zone. If you want to succeed in your business or any endeavor that you are engaged in, it is important to overcome this challenge. Business wise, you have to put yourself out there consistently. No one likes leaving their comfort zone.The reason why is because it’s comfortable!

I’ve learned that the best things in life require a big change in mindset. As a business owner, you are a leader. So as a leader, you must embrace the task of getting out of your comfort zone to the point that it seems like you are looking for those kinds of opportunities.

I want to talk about getting out of your comfort zone and provide some ideas that will help you accomplish this if you haven’t done so already. Think about any successful person that has influence. Immediately, you’ll notice that this person has a level of person development that displays confidence. So as an entrepreneur, you must first develop your confidence before you can develop your income.

how to develop your confidence to get out of your comfort zone.

Here are some things that I have done to get out of my comfort zone:

  1. Make videos talking about something you learned. Offer tips, 1-3, about 1-2 mins.
  2. Join a toastmasters group. find one in your local area. Google toastmasters and begin your search. Give a speech.
  3. Read books on confidence/personal development. Go to amazon.com or barnes and nobles.
  4. talk to someone you don’t know. Just say hello.

In conclusion, These are some of the ways to get out of your comfort zone. Understand that your comfort zone is your danger zone. The more you stay in your comfort zone, the longer you delay your success.

Success is found in consistency.

There are reasons why people quit. Some of those reasons are fear, unbelief, adversity and others. What usually happens is people will watch a video or read a blog of a guy stating that he got 25 sign ups in three days or something.

When people see this, they try it for a few days. As soon as they do not get identical results, they give up and quit. What folks don’t understand is that there was a process of consistent work that was implemented day in and day out, to get those kind of results.

image

No one starts out a six figure earner. You must consistently promote and market YOURSELF. Notice I didn’t say opportunity. You must market yourself.

A lack of consistency contributes to a person quitting and calling this industry a scam. Consistency is not talked about enough. You don’t start something for a month, then stop, thinking any day you’re gonna hit the lottery.

image

We have to get rid of this lotto mentality when it comes to network marketing. Rome wasn’t built over night and neither will your business. You can get uncommon results but you have to understand that uncommon results come from uncommon actions.

You have to be able to account for your daily income producing activities period. The truth of the matter is that most people are not reading anything to get better. They are not watching material to learn how to build their business. They don’t listen to training calls or attend conference events. Moreover, they do not connect with people. No wonder why they are not getting the results they want.

image

This business is called network marketing. Most people leave the work part out of it. There is a work involved and that work must be done consistently.

A Dream That Can’t Be Shattered

image.jpeg

Dreams are imaginations that you project in your mind. They are desires or fantasies that we usually wish to become a reality. We all have dreams. We have them for ourselves and we have them for our family. Dreams are a part of what makes people get out of bed in the morning. No one can fulfill our dreams for us. It is our duty and responsibility. Sometimes, people say discouraging things to shatter your dreams. Often times, it’s because they have don’t have any themselves. Ambitious people have dreams that can’t be shattered.

image

Its hard to beat a man who doesn’t give up. His dreams are too important to settle for mediocrity. Focus on where you want to go, then plan accordingly. You have a dream that can’t be shattered. A dream that’s worth the grind. You’ll realize that your dream is not just about you. It’s about the millions of lives that will be changed.

image

Many people have allowed their dreams to become nightmares. This is due to a lack of action, wrong network and negative mindset. It is also important to understand that a dream without a plan is just a wish. Many people have been wishing for too long. Wishing this would work, wishing things would get better. A dream that can’t be shattered makes things work, makes things better. Many communities are stricken with lack not only because of less resources. They are so due to a lack of dreaming and planning. You have a dream that can’t be shattered.

Don’t Let Quitting Get You Down( what quitting does to the soul)

image

We’ve all started things and then quit. Some of those things were school, businesses, jobs etc. There were probably hundreds of excuses that we could have given, but the fact of the matter is that we quit. If we’re honest, we will admit that we quit on ourselves. We quit on our goals and our dreams. We all know the ole saying: quitters never win and winners never quit.

Giving up is not a good feeling. We try to justify it, but it does not work. Quitting is hard on the soul because it makes us feel like failures internally. We often try to make up for it by trying something else. As soon as we give up on that, we start searching for something else yet again.

image

It is said that most businesses have a 90 percentile failure rate. Could it be that  many of the individuals running these enterprises failed by quitting? Short comings are a reality in business and life. I’ve mentioned before that when you start something and then quit, you develop the habitual pattern of starting and quitting. This practice doesn’t serve you nor get you closer to your goal. It actually damages your chances for any kind of success.

image

Quitting something that you know you should finish, gives you a sense of un-accomplishment. Even if this is the case in your life right now, you can still turn it around. The only thing that matters is your decision and your actions to succeed. Don’t let quitting get you down. Even if you quit on God, God will not quit on you. He is faithful and just to forgive you. So forgive yourself for quitting. Get back up and serve the Lord thy God. Don’t let quitting get you down.

What Stop Most People From Taking Action?

image

What stops most people from taking action? There are many reasons why most people don’t take action. I will go over some common reasons, or excuses. A reason why people do not take action is because of fear. Fear is the thief of your dreams. Many people fear what may not even happen. In some cases, fear is condition that results from a lack of confidence or self esteem. It’s a paralyzer. Fear stops people from succeeding and reaching their highest potential. We have fear but we can’t let it stop us.

Another reason that stops people from taking action is their own self limiting beliefs. You have to believe that you can accomplish any goal. Your actions dictate what you believe consciously or subconsciously. No matter what excuses we give, the only ones we are fooling is ourselves. Believe you can make a difference and take action.

image

A third reason why most people don’t take action is because of the hard work that’s required. After working forty to sixty hours a week, who wants to work hard building a business? People are conditioned to work at a job, not hard for themselves. Working hard for yourself is challenging because it requires mental energy to remain persistent and consistent. When you lack mental energy, it’s difficult to work hard. Nevertheless, people make excuses to avoid working hard.

image

In conclusion, these are some reasons why most people do not take action. If anything good is worth having, it’s worth working for. Some folks are too concerned of what friends and family will think of them. Because of this, they do not take action. The difference between your dream and reality is your action.
