“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.

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.

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.

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.

A Life Of Hope

image

“Most of the important things were accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all”. -Dale Carnegie.

The bible says hope defferred makes the heart sick(paraphrased). I want to talk about a life of hope. When you talk about hope, you are talking about a better way. You’re talking about the possibility of brighter days ahead. Hope is important. Without it, you have nothing.

Take away a man’s possessions and he can get it back. If you take away his hope you took everything. It is imperative that you have hope. Hope is what keeps you going even though you want to stop.  There are going to be good days and bad days alike. That’s just what it is. Just as there are periods of sun and rain, there will be times of pleasure and pain.

image

Even in these times, you must maintain a life of hope. It is easy to have hope when things are fine and harder when things are not. We seek a life of expectancy. We expect things to get better. Not just for ourselves, but for other as well.

In conclusion, we must maintain a life of hope. Life without hope is no hope at all. Many people gave up on life. They developed a settlement mentality. They settle for what’s given to them instead of going after what they deserve. When you have hope, you develop a prosperous way of thinking. You talk about what can instead of what if. Finally, hope cannot be found in a man. He needs hope also. Our hope begins and ends in God.

What Leaders Do That Non-Leaders Don’t

leader images

There are several things that leaders do that non leaders don’t. First off, there are good leaders and there are bad leaders. Dr. Martin Luther King was a good leader. Adolph Hitler was a bad leader. When you go into business, you automatically assume the role of a leader. It is your responsibility to learn, grow and show. There are activities that you the leader should be doing consistently. I will cover some of those activities and hopefully share something new with you.

Leaders are readers.

As a leader, you should be reading a book or article of some kind relating to your field of interest. Books on personal development, leadership and marketing is appropriate. Technology is constantly changing. What worked yesterday may not work today. That is why reading these kinds of books are important. Non leaders refuse to read because they either think they know it all or are just lazy.

Leaders lead by example.

This means you are on trainings, creating content and communicating with people. As an individual of influence, you should never ask someone to do something that you are not willing to do yourself. Leaders step up to the plate. Non leaders make excuses for why they are not getting the activities done.

Leaders think about moving forward.

Leaders are always in production mode. Even on vacation, they are observant of the next prospective candidate. Leaders think and plan the next course of action to take. They have a vision for where they want to go in life. There is really no such thing as a day off. Their motto is, time is not money, time is results.

In conclusion, leaders do what non leaders don’t. These individuals set the bar and then raise it. Leaders take action in order to obtain a desired result. Once obtained, they raise the bar higher to get a better result than the first. Do what leaders do to have where leaders have.

Much Success,

Calvin Moss

What You Say To Yourself Matters

positive self talk images

What you say to yourself matters. Your inner communication contributes to your success or defeat. Whenever we give up and say this business doesn’t work, we are communicating from a negative frame of reference. Instead of saying this business doesn’t work, say how can I make it work. Oftentimes, we are the ones who sabotage our success. Personally speaking, I’ve cheated myself out of wonderful opportunities because I used the wrong language.

What you say to yourself can have serious, physical repercussions. If you say your marriage sucks, you’ll probably say and do things to justify that excuse. Conversely, if you say your marriage is great, your talk and actions will support that statement.

Whenever you say to yourself you can’t, your mind goes to work to confirm why you can’t. You have to watch what you say to yourself. That’s why personal development is so needful. People are naturally skeptic about business and life. So we must reprogram ourselves to release the skepticism in order to realize what’s possible for our lives.

The bible says life and death are in the power of the tongue. Those who love it will eat the fruit thereof. Too many of us have been eating the wrong fruit. Because of this, we are facing the death. We must stop speaking death to our marriages, businesses and ourselves. We deserve better so let us talk better. The words you speak can influence a self-fulfilling prophecy.

In conclusion, what you say to yourself matters. What you say has the power to support your dreams or tear them down. It is important to learn the language of success. Our language, particularly our inner speech, dictates our actions. Our actions dictate what we believe.
