Consistency is Everything

24 Nov

He who can be consistent will go the farthest.

Okay enough of my fortune cookie flow.
Seriously though folks, it’s the person who sticks to their gym schedule, eats right every day, sleeps right, who gets the killer physique.

It’s the investor who studies the markets and tracks the mac d indicators and does their due diligence on options and puts etc- who makes a killing.
Regardless of your venture, if you are consistent you will reach the finish line.
Talent is nothing without consistency.
Look at the pitchers in the MLB.
They have to throw consistently, not just fast, but consistent.

What can you do to increase your consistency?

4 Elements to Greatness

4 Elements to Greatness

It’s 2013, everyone is making goals and becoming a new person. And for many its the same goals as last year. Tenacity is good no question- but its time to skew focus.

There are 4 key ingredients to true greatness and for 2013 I want us all to embrace them even before setting a goal. Set your goals? No prob- just take this is first.

Belief
Nothing great is done without belief. If you don’t believe in your cause or goal you have no power. You will not move forward. You may not even tread water. When you aren’t confident- LIE. Even to yourself. Belief comes from within and from previous successes. See what you have done and believe you Will do more.
Belief in U.
If you don’t believe you can do it- you can’t. when you do it know it is all you. No one helps you. When I’m in the gym I have to lift off the weight. I work by the motto that if you can’t take it off the rack you don’t deserve to lift it. Right there I force my belief to grow. I literally put my mind into the muscle and shape my results thru my belief. Do you see how simple that is? How we can all do it. I bench press into the 300s. I get help. But I do it. No one lifts, they just make sure I don’t die. Get there.

Consistency
Without consistency you can’t do anything. You are recruiting to build your team?
You have to work the system everyday.
You blog? blog daily.. There is no blog if you don’t blog a lot. Blog often. And keep blogging. That may not have been said eloquently but you get the point. You have to work at what you do religiously.
Michael Jordan worked at being great. He was consistent with his gym time. He practiced. And practiced. And practiced. You have to work at it over and over. There are no breaks until you reach the mountain top.
I love the quote ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead,’ as it shows the level of dedication needed.

Discipline
To get to the top you have to be great. And the way to greatness lies in discipline. What you do daily is what you become. Let’s look at the meriam webster definition:
Definition of DISCIPLINE
1: punishment.
2: instruction.
3: a field of study.
4: training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character.
5a : control gained by enforcing obedience or order.
5b : orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior.
c : self-control.
6: a rule or system of rules governing conduct or activity.
Discipline is almost in its simplest form taking the other three elements and combining them simultaneously.
Loving what you do, and doing it consistently is discipline. Belief that you can and will do it is derived from discipline. When you make it your mission to live disciplined you will see greatness invariably.

Loving what you do
You’re wasting your time if your heart isn’t there. You have to love what you do. It has to be synonymous with you. I have a day job. Love it too folks. I have a business. Love that too. However when I stumbled onto Ray Higdon and how I could blog to build an empire I was astounded. And as he said, if he could do it so could anyone. And once I started this blog it was over. I’ve come to love the blogging and guest editorials I’ve been blessed to write. It has been an honor. You see writing was my first love. I’ve written stories, raps, songs, poetry, editorials, and now blogs. But my true love was always present- The Writing.
When you love what you do you already feel successful. However this feeling will grow and will lead to external success if not worldwide success.
See you at the top.

“What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.”

Don’t Reinvent The Wheel.

22 Jul

Today’s article is going to be random in its cohesiveness but bear with me- it will be cogent by its end.

-What is your mindset?
What is it that you have told yourself you will do? What path have you created for yourself to follow? You see the mind will do what you tell it. And if you supply your mid with a simple concept, a seed idea- it will do the rest. We as entrepreneurs have to learn to keep to the basics. Merely getting the idea in your mind so it is deeply rooted and doing this three to five times a day will cause a tremendous mindset shift. This shift will move you from dreaming about success and wealth to having a wealth of success.

-Are you consistent in your actions? (Not just your speech)
This is a key concept a lot of people gloss over or outright ignore while paying lip service to the concept. Everyday we must do it all. WE must achieve. And the greatest step after mindset creation is consistency. By consistently acting in a manner that exudes business people will come for the ride. When people see that you are the same day in and day out. They will want to be with you. When they know that your actions speak louder than your words, and that the two match- then you will have true success. And I am not speaking of a few quick sales, or some opt-ins for a few weeks. No. I’m talking repetitive sales.
Repetitive growth.
Residual income.
Success.

-Don’t reinvent the wheel.
A lot of times the path before us is ready and right in front of us. If you have joined a team
And the leader/organizer has a blueprint for success- do it their way. Now I know from experience that not all uplines are created equal. And I know that some have no clue what’s going on in today’s marketing world. In fact they may even be half wrong.
But are they producing?
You joined right so it must work. Sorry to say it so crass but its that simple folks.
A mentor in a venture I left consistently does close to a quarter million dollars a year.
For about twenty years.
Recap:
$250,000.00 a year for 20 years.
Total:
Five million dollars aka $5,000,000.00.
His son does a million a year.
I’ll stop the dog and pony show now. Yet if we look at his results and the results of his son we see that the system works when you work it. I made a good profit before I left.
And it was simply from doing what he said. He said hit the ground running.
Act with urgency.
Make lists.
Do self improvement.
And I did everything he said. And it worked. Quickly too. And the only things I did were what he suggested. Heck!, I skipped a few steps thinking I was smart and still made money. Let’s imagine if I had not reinvented the wheel and just followed through one hundred percent…

-Follow through.
That’s it. No long diatribe. No fancy speech. Follow through. In golf it may define your swing. In love it is its definition. In life it is everything. When you don’t finish what you start you are almost worthless. Its equivalent to quitting. And if that’s you- quit the race.
And if its not- you will succeed.
And if it is and you want to change it- I’m here. Let’s win together.
I’ll show you a few tools and some cool concepts- most of which you can implement free. Let’s do it folks.

Its not the car its the driver.

21 Jul

Its not the car its the driver.

True story: I once raced an Audi A8 in an 86 camry- the 4 cylinder at that. And I won.
I know most of you are laughing or logging off your laptops and ipads in sheer disgust at such a boast but let me tell my story.
So its the last light before the west side highway and the guy next to me in the A8 was sneering at my hoopti (low cost, no frills car). So I tapped the gas petal perhaps too aggressively and he replied in kind. When the light went green he was gone. Off the line he left me looking limp with no cialis in sight. However about a half mile up when the traffic thickened I not only caught up but passed him. At this leg of the race he was outclassed in two ways. My car was a good deal smaller so I could get in and out of tight spots easier. Also I was a little younger and my nature a bit more zealous so I risked a little more than he did. I weaved in and out of traffic like a mad man. And by the time we exited for the Deegan he was behind me.
I will add that he had more to lose by driving more aggressively as his car was six figures and mine was three. However in this instance it can also be said that he was shown up by a hoopti while driving performance unleashed.

The moral of my story?
Its not your business that will hold you back. It is only you who can do that. I don’t care what venture, product, or concept you are involved with. When you don’t do what is needed you will always lose. Sales and recruiting are arenas of focus.
Are you focused?
If you aren’t focused you could give away gold and still go home with the exact amount of units you left your home with.
Do you go the extra mile?
Giving your team that little extra push, those few minutes of your day exactly when needed will fuel your results. Remember winners do more to get more.
Are you risking all you’ve got to get where you want to be?
Nothing is gained when nothing is risked. If you don’t put in the hours, the dollars and risk the rejection you won’t succeed. Bruce Jenner had to work harder to get his gold medal. And his failures were public! And so were his victories. Think about that.

These are simple questions folks. What are your answers.
In everything you do in life from love to sales, to brushing your teeth you only get what you put in. A better toothbrush isn’t the key to cleaner teeth. Brushing three to four times a day for the prescribed amount of time is the key. Same in love. Same in business. The keys are simply. Its in the application that success will be found.
