‘IT’S CHESS NOT CHECKERS’

9 Nov

‘IT’S CHESS NOT CHECKERS’

Today I’m keeping it short.
Mindset is the name of the game. Life is mindset. If you perceive yourself as a loser- U ARE. If you see a winner in the Mirror- the Winner is YOU. There’s isn’t much to think about. You see self perception is everything. To see the leader you are is more effective than to train to lead. The most qualified guy on paper is usually the least skilled. Not always true I concede but who you are on paper- as in certifications and education- doesn’t hold a candle to who you are in the field.
The guy who leads the team to victory is the king. He paid the cost. Leading is acting.

And from here I reference my title-
‘IT’S CHESS NOT CHECKERS’.
Simple. Eloquent. Factual.
Checkers has strategy. It requires skills, tactical motion, and patience.
Chess however multiplies all those efforts exponentially. The pieces have greater variety in motion and more skills sets. Indeed some attack in pairs. It is quite literally war. The troops advance. They close ranks. The king runs. Indeed even your queen who runs the gamut can be reduced to kindle within 5 moves!
What do you do? PLaY CHeSS. Skip the checkers. Every move in each endeavor you embark on requires you think 5 steps ahead. Every action sets its own reaction. You don’t anticipate the clients wants you dictate them. Gretzky adhered to this. He said go where you want the puck not where its going. Remember that guy; jobs? Yeah Steve. He ascribed to Gretzky’s philosophy. Two great innovators and champions in the arenas they chose almost inherently knew you had to control the game. You had to make moves. Indeed you don’t play. It isn’t a game.
And neither is your business. You have to know the moves.
Anticipate the factors.
If you can’t see what’s coming down the pike you are failing already.
Every entrepreneur is playing Chess.
Checkers is for employees.
See the difference- its so simple its astounding. When you run a business you prepare. And when your plan fails you are ahead anyway. Business requires leadership. You are on the offensive. I’ll tell you one thing I learned playing chess. The guy on the defensive- He lost already. The offensive player is winning. He’s dictating terms. He runs the board. He controls the game and the flow. In your business are your creditors dictating your income aka achievement levels or are you? You must always play the game on your terms. Not to say there aren’t setbacks. Heck, I have had them all along my journey. Yet the push from failure set my troops loose with a greater tenacity to dictate the terms of the surrender. War has casualties. And as such. Treat my business with the same mentality.
And from there, there is one choice only:
Live or die. I won’t die. I won’t quit. I will succeed. I will triumph. At the very least my enemy will have a Pyrrhic victory.
Such catastrophic losses so as to preclude a victory. Chess. Not checkers. Victory. Not losing. Plan every angle. Be ready for set backs. Anticipate your opponents moves, aka the consumer or competition. And don’t forget to leave room for your own margin of error. We all drop the ball. But the entrepreneur who plans ahead wins. Have a business plan. Have a mentor who knows the game. See where you need to go- and Crush the competition.

SAVE NOTHING!!!!

21 Sep

SAVE NOTHING!!!!

NO MORE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS!!!
Savings accounts are killing your dreams. Your fancy IRA and 414k are slaving you out! Stop saving your money.
Okay. Wait up folks. Let me get into all this.
There’s a lot you need to know and I only got a few of the pieces. Let’s get it in my friends.

Ok, go ahead and save.
Save something but you shouldn’t be betting it will save you. A lot of people work like dogs and sock away that glorious 20%. Great plan. I applaud you. However I don’t agree. At this stage of my life I’ve committed to paying down my debts. I need financial freedom now. And before the economy tanked this was my thought. I knew I’d make up for lost time with the extra dollars, but couldn’t do both. So saving money is a last goal not a first. I say save something. Get up to a grand and stop. Suze Orman says save 6 months- for me that’s 18,200 bucks. Sorry Suz, but before the economy took a crap in my wallet you had a different plan for me. Ill skip you and a few others.

Your job won’t save you.
This part corresponds to the last one. Your job won’t provide the income you need. If you aren’t a top level CEO with that golden parachute forget it. Move on. Now you don’t have to quit but reassign your drive.

Make money. Create cash flow.
This is the only way I think we can thrive and not just survive. A friend and I have committed to buying a small amounts of .999 pure silver to hold wealth and barter if necessary. Now yes, I know this is savings. However its not fiat currency in the bank. Its not devalued dollars and I can trade it in this economy and in the event of an economic collapse- global or local.
Now this may not fit with the part of the article I started but wait- as my silver appreciates I make money. As I buy volumes cheap now I will beat the rise I see coming. And as I cash in ounces over time I will have a consistent cash flow. See how that works? Disagree with my concept fine but I have a way that is fluid and set to the constraints I designed. I have a plan. I’m in control. And a savings account wouldn’t do this for me. Look at the interest rates from ’06 to ’12 and tell me what you think.

Let residual income save you.
This is the way most people hate. Or even outright malign and avoid. Residual income simply means money coming in the future from past efforts. That’s it. You don’t need an mlm but why not try one? Tax breaks, fiscal education, what do you lose? Its a good way to learn at the very least. If not what do you think dividends in mega-conglomerates are? Get it. Continuous income is a key strategy. Why do banks charge interest? Car loans, mortgages, school loans. These are residuals for a bank. Create your own my friends.

You can’t reach your full potential wit a safety net.
This might be the key to my article. The heart of existence too.
When we aim for safety first we lose first. Life is a quick trip some say. I’m in my thirties and I let fear get me a lot when I was young, heights, rock climbing- no more. Last time I hit a theme park I got on every ride and got the cam picks to prove it. I screamed like a little kid but loved it in the end. And in life there is a saying: go for broke. If you do nothing but play it safe nothing will change. There is no growth. There is no dream. There is no hope.
Now I refuse to be safe. I use the club in my car and have alarms in my apartment and a go bag. But I don’t wait for safety in finance. I don’t wait for safety in my blog or my ventures. I reach for the stars. I commit funds and worry later. I’m not foolish but prudent. And here’s why: I’m used to making safe and or smart decisions and so when I take risks they are calculated. And that is smart. I share my world in this blog. I share my mind and heart with anyone willing. And I follow the financial strategies most shun.
And for me that works. I take a lot of fiscal risks. And yes I’ve lost money. I bought fools stocks too. The learning I gained was priceless. The courage I found- more so. This is my life and I won’t follow talking heads. I’m moving forward with no qualms.
I will be rich. By my hand, my choices, and with no safety net. Sorry to my fiscally prudent fellows- I won’t save to fight fear when success trumps all.

#thriveorsurvive.

Playing it safe is the cousin of fear when its true rationale eludes us. -CEO, Change In Advance.

ADAPT

5 Aug

ADAPT.
We are going to keep it short and simple with a one word theme so I get it done and you get a great read.

In business, as in life change is inevitable. The only question is how will you combat this to effect a success and growth rate that will not only be rewarding but sets a precedent for those who come behind you.
Below I will outline 5 simple steps to get you there.

Adjust
Do more
Articulate
Pursue
Teach

-Adjust.
You won’t get what you want all of the time, fact.
And you won’t close everyone you talk to, also a fact. However when you know that you simply have to adjust and move on the rest is easy. How? Simple. Look at your stats.
If you search out the same people as clients or partners and your results are dismal, move on. Your model of an ideal partner is off.
If you use the same basic spiel every time you pursue a new client and you only close one in ten, you have to adjust your methods.
If you have always used only one sales funnel set up and scheme, and people aren’t converting- time to adjust.
When you look at the numbers you will find your strengths and weaknesses.
When you focus on adjusting your methods and motivations you Will find the team of your dreams. You will close eighty percent of the time. Adjusting isn’t a coping mechanism- it is THE mechanism.
Remember if you are stiff, and you can’t move your rudder then you are on a collision course with failure. Adjust your sales pitch, adjust your plans, adjust your methods; just keep your passion.

-Do more.
Trying to succeed? Hoping you make the team? Need core conversions and thousands more blog hits?
DO MORE. Simple, concise, and easy.
Do more. Increase your efforts. Apply more
hours. What your doing is working, and under that assumption you need only do more. Put in the man hours the sweat. If you blog, blog more. Do a blogging bonanza where you double or triple your educative output for x amount of days. Do you mentor? Then offer the double the time for the same price for the first five followers to sign up. And then repeat this process on twitter, tumblr, facebook, pinterest- it matters only that you do more. If you were a photographer you would do the same. If you played in the NBA and you were missing your shots from the free throw line- you would take more shots. You would do this my putting in more hours at practice. If you did and hour on the courts- now you do three.

-Articulate.
Say what you want say what is needed. When you want to close people word count. Your voice is required. People will opt in but if you want them to duplicate and grow and earn a healthy income- call them. Daily. Speak with them, know them, let them know they aren’t a number. Leaders articulate well. OBAMA makes speech after speech and regardless of the numbers people listen. His choice of words rallies people to him and his causes repeatedly. A great coach does this as well. He gets people excited, passionate, he created a controlled frenzy that motivates and creates momentum. This momentum in-turn facilitates action which begets victory. See the picture?

-Pursue.
So they came to your webinar. They emailed you after saying it was pretty sweet- but they want more info. PURSUE. This isn’t a moment for discouragement. Its a moment to show that you are a person as well and that you are there, 24/7 at their disposal. Call them the next day. Discuss life and times first. Email them motivational quotes so their mind sees success while it ponders joining you in pursuit of the American Dream. Call again. It takes five to seven interactions statistically to close most people. And that means you PURSUE. Victory is elusive at times but when you chase it you will make it.

-Teach.
Great you signed’em up. You got three people a day for three days straight. Now you can relax right? WRONG.
Time to TEACH. Everything you know, you help them to master. You teach your team everything about the business. And everything that can help them in all of lifes pursuits. Knowledge pooled in to a collective and shared through proper discourse will lead to greater success for you and every member of your team. And even when the numbers are running lower than expected, as log as the team is learning you are winning. A quick close or opt-in is always there in a pinch. But a team member who generates six figures and then duplicates that repeatedly- that is a find. And where do you find that guy or gal? They are already with you. Great leaders and closers are made not born. We are all called to greatness but some people do not heed the call. We are great from inception yet many people on your team will quit. Many won’t try too hard. Not a problem. You keep teaching. You grow, they grow.
And as they grow you refine as well. Whenever you give you get.

If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. – Napoleon Hill

You cannot lose unless you quit.

4 Jul

Keeping it simple today folks.
You cannot lose unless you quit.

Life doesn’t become any easier to grasp and implement. A loser is someone who quits pure and simple. When you commit to an action you must follow through.
You may not come in first place.
You may not reach your sales goal.
You may come in third.
Did you give it your all? If so you won. Really folks- If you quit when you saw you weren’t going to get to the top this go round- you are a loser. A lot of life is simply showing up and participating. So if you do those two things to the full measure of your abilities you are a winner.

-Sales is a numbers game. All business is.
Even Obama needs the votes. Its how it works. So if you are aiming to reach the pinnacle and commission like heck- do you quit? No. Because when you do you breed failure and that skews the numbers in their favor not yours. Also when you quit you set a bad example for your team. Why work with a quitter? He/she can’t teach me anything is what people will think. You will lose future sales and recruits as well once people see that you aren’t the winner you claimed to be on facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. So why quit and then multiply that loss by an exponential amount. The same exponential loss can be exponential gain. Speak on the lesson you learn in your blogs and social media outlets. Besides adding authenticity to your journey it shows people your human and these people will join you. They will buy from you. There is potential to grow when we lose because failures make winners. It is akin to a baby learning to walk. We’ve all seen it and smiled. They stand then fall on their bottom. They rise and take a few steps. Then use your leg to cheat. Then they fall. Yet as time progresses. They gain balance and a sense of what they are doing- so will you. Also their muscle memory increases and learns. And then they are in their groove. The same applies to you. Success, winning can be habits. If you let them. So turn everything into victory.

-How you lose is winning.
Its true. If you lose a race and throw a tantrum people will disdain you.
If you spit on the winner or break your trophy you reek of ignorance and contempt.
What you do speaks volumes so why let your actions speak pure failure and disgust.
As I’ve said before- ACT AS IF. Act as a winner. Act as a king. Act out your success even in defeat and there is no loss.
If you come in second and the race was close and it was down to the wire- people will remember you. They will cheer you and even your opponents will be drawn close to you.

You cannot lose unless you quit.
Point blank period. There is nothing to think about. Every action and result is a victory if you make it. Every time you are bested teaches you something. Anytime you learn you win. For example you pitched your heart out. To ten ppl today. And the day before. And the day before. And you didn’t get one bite. However if you look at your results you will find answers. You will learn what you should do. You will discover what you didn’t. wrong. It may be the time you asked. It may be who you asked. It could be anything. But these little details allow you to craft your pitch. They allow you to emerge victorious in every instance. So the only question is will you find the victories that exist in every loss or will you quit?

Tell yourself YOUR TRUTH, not the TRUTH.

11 Jun

Tell yourself YOUR TRUTH, not the TRUTH.

People will never tell you how great you are. Ok so it sounds like a pessimistic start but bear with me.
In life you may be the champ and never be acknowledged as so- FACT. But that’s irrelevant. If you are aiming high solely for the accolades you are only going to be the stepping stone that others step on to get to the top. That being said today we will focus on creating your own truth.

-Create your own truth. Daily.
You are the BEST. FACT. Always believe that. Create your own truth daily. Now first you should create a basic truth. If you box- I’m better than Ali.
If you sell- I’m the number one sales agent in North America.
If you recruit- I recruit more people than Noah did animals for his ark!
Get the drift? You must first create a truth of greatness in order to be the Greatest. Sounds simple but this small step has proven quite elusive for many people.
So first establish that you are the greatest. Second daily affirm that truth with a sub-truth. This can be as simple as I will smile more than anyone today. Or I will get 5 new names and email addresses. Simple right?
Remember do it daily and success is a given.

-Believe this truth even when it isn’t.
Simple fact is you won’t always feel Great.
You have to believe you are great before every victory and every defeat. People will not always believe in you but you must believe in your greatness even when you are not. Jay Cutler aka Mr. Olympia tore his bicep, and he will compete again. He lost a Mr. Olympia only to reclaim the crown. Another great is Muhammad Ali who lost his belt only to reclaim it. No one thought he would. And he DID. You see it isn’t always going to seem the truth, your greatness that is. Yet you must dig into your inner being and even after you have failed 99 times you stand again and re-embark on the journey to greatness.

-Repeat this truth.
Repeating affirmations and other confidence boosters becomes more than cool words. This simple exercise will over time lead to you convincing yourself that it is truth. An once this truth becomes self evident true growth and astounding results will occur rapidly.
Now that you have the conviction. You have to use it. Any new skill unused is useless. We don’t grow to not achieve. We grow to gain. And as we gain knowledge, wealth, power, or compassion we are required to give of these things to better ourselves and others until the victory is magnified.
Believe you are great and you will be great.
