HARNESS THE POWER OF ENTHUSIASM

November 25th, 2017 by

Harness the power of enthusiasm and you will escalate your success to a higher level. Napoleon Hill, in the book “Think and Grow Rich”, listed 31 major causes of failure. Point #22 was lack of enthusiasm. He said, “Without enthusiasm, one cannot be convincing. Moreover, enthusiasm is contagious, and the person who has it, under control, is generally welcome in any group of people.” In the same book, Hill tells about Andrew Carnegie, the Scotsman who came to America with very little to his name and eventually gave away over two hundred million dollars. He hired the young Charles Schwab to run his U.S. Steel Corporation and paid him over a million dollars a year at the beginning of the Twentieth Century! Read on and you’ll learn why.

HARNESS THE POWER OF ENTHUSIASM BY FOLLOWING CHARLES SCHWAB

It was in 1897, when Schwab was just 35, that he became president of the Carnegie Steel Company. Then, in 1901, he helped negotiate the sale of Carnegie Steel to J.P. Morgan and a group of New York financiers. After that, Schwab became the first president of the U.S. Steel Corporation, which was formed out of Carnegie’s former holdings.

Schwab did not get that position because he knew more about the production of steel than anyone else. One of the main reasons was his enthusiasm. Here is a quote from Schwab: “I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among men the greatest asset I possess.” He also said, “A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm.” Walter Chrysler, of automobile manufacturing fame, said: “The real secret of success is enthusiasm.”

Thus, if we want to get ahead, whether we feel like it or not, we’ve got to develop and use enthusiasm on a daily basis. Here are some ideas to improve our enthusiasm.

START EACH DAY BY DECLARING AN ENTHUSIASM AFFIRMATION

Harness the power of enthusiasm by harnessing your thoughts. Our thoughts become our actions and our reality. If you declare that it’s hard for you to show enthusiasm, that’s exactly how you’re going to act. The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between something real and something we imagine. Thus, if we focus our thoughts in one direction, we can focus our thoughts in another direction. That more positive direction can make a big difference in our success!

What you do the first 15 minutes of each day will set your mood for the entire day. Most people set a negative mood by watching television news, listening to the radio, or reading the paper. Most of that is full of murder and mayhem. I suggest turning off the news in the morning and, instead, declaring some positive affirmations that will help you build your enthusiasm:

Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I show enthusiasm every day, in everything I do, and to everyone around me. As a result, great things are happening in my life! My personal relationships are improving and I’m attracting more money into my life than ever before. I am excited!

Don’t analyze these words. Just declare them, out loud, the first thing every morning and the last thing every night. Those are the two times your subconscious minds is most open to suggestion. Do this for 90 days and watch how it improves the enthusiasm you show every day and thus escalates your success!

DECLARE THAT “IT’S SHOWTIME” WHENEVER YOU NEED EXTRA ENERGY

Harness the power of enthusiasmHarness the power of enthusiasm by declaring certain words. Years ago, when I was a television producer and director, I produced a weekly television program on Lifetime Television. I remember many a nights, when we were shooting our show at a Los Angeles television studio, we worked late into the evenings. I helped direct our program. As a director, it was up to me to get everyone’s energy up, when we worked late, so we could finish our program, make it look good, and go home.

Thus, in the control room, and to everyone in the studio, I would say on my headset, with enthusiasm: “It’s showtime!” That would suddenly energize everyone and we were able to get our work done.

I know there are days when all of us don’t feel like being enthusiastic. There are some days when I don’t feel like being enthusiastic. However, by allowing those feelings to become our main focus, we could be losing opportunities. Thus, when I feel tired, or depressed, I simply say to myself “It’s showtime!” Then, as I pretend to be enthusiastic, that affects everyone around me in a very positive way. They start showing more enthusiasm and, for the next hour or two, I operate on their energy! Norman Vincent Peale said, “If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind.”

MAKE A LIST OF MAJOR POSITIVES IN YOUR LIFE

Harness the power of enthusiasmHarness the power of enthusiasm by overcoming depression. When I don’t feel like being enthusiastic, it’s usually the result of my being depressed or upset about something. That’s when I think about the fact that a leader does what has to be done, when it has to be done, whether they feel like it or not. To help me turn a moment like that around, so I can get back to enthusiasm, I made a list of the four or five major things that have worked out right in my life.

You might do the same thing. On your list might be your good health, a loving family, your talents, or your career. Then, when something doesn’t work out the way you want, take a look at your list of major positives in your life. Ask yourself, “Would I trade anything on this list in exchange for fixing whatever I’m upset about at the moment?” I believe the answer will be “No way!” I find that doing this helps me get out of a rut of depression and refocuses me on what is really important.

YOU CAN SURPASS MONEY AND POWER

Harness the power of enthusiasmHarness the power of enthusiasm by following the thoughts of Og Mandino. Mandino wrote a number of amazing books including “The Greatest Salesman in the World”. He said this about enthusiasm: Enthusiasm is the greatest asset in the world. Its potential value far surpasses money and power and influence. Single-handed, the enthusiast convinces and dominates where the wealth accumulated by a small army of workers would scarcely raise a tremor of interest. Enthusiasm tramples over prejudice and opposition, spurns inaction, storms the citadel of its object and, like an avalanche, overwhelms and engulfs all obstacles.”

Thus, if I could truly convince you that showing more enthusiasm on a daily basis could bring great riches into your life, would that be worth the effort to show it every day? If showing enthusiasm would truly help you overcome obstacles, would that be worth the effort? Why not make a concerted effort to show enthusiasm on a daily basis for 30 days and see what happens? I believe you’ll see magic occur in your life that will be like an avalanche of positive things happening in your favor.

State the affirmations above and below, without analysis, and watch how those words will change your thoughts. Your thoughts will become your actions and everyone around you will benefit from your enthusiasm! Then, I believe, everything you touch will indeed prosper and succeed!

HARNESS THE POWER OF ENTHUSIASM DAILY AFFIRMATION

“Everything I touch prospers and succeeds! I show enthusiasm every day, in everything I do, and to everyone around me!”

INSPIRE A CHANGE IN ATTITUDE

November 13th, 2017 by

Inspire a change in attitude and watch what good things are about to happen in your organization! A secret potential that somehow manages to stay under the radar, for many project managers and leaders, is that any group or organization can achieve more of its goals with a change in attitude. The key question is how this change can be achieved and maintained. Daily routines seldom make people realize that their attitude is something they should be aware of and that it’s possible for them to adjust it. That is where an attitude speaker comes in.

INSPIRE A CHANGE IN ATTITUDE BECAUSE ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING!

Attitude goes far beyond feelings or moods to involve the outlook of individuals and groups. Moreover, attitude is contagious. One person with a bad attitude can spoil an entire team or group. And, one person with a good attitude can improve the prospects of everyone with whom they come in contact. A speaker on attitude will draw attention to the influential power of attitude in order to empower any organization toward greater success.

GAIN OUTSIDE INSIGHT

Just as a daily routine can make it difficult to reflect, being around the same people daily can make individual attitudes seem as if they’re set in stone. When you bring in the right source of fresh insight, you can actually push the boundaries of the possible. Scheduling a good speaker can be a great way to break up routines. It can make audiences more receptive to the perspectives that only an outside observer or instructor can provide.

CREATE A TURNING POINT

A speaking engagement can serve as a turning point for individuals who have worked together for a long time at the same business or on the same project. It can be ideal to bring this guest in early on in the process. That’s before attitude issues emerge or a range of attitudes has become customary for the participants. Many leaders, however, do not realize that attitude is an issue until it has become a problem. No matter when an intervention happens, a speaker can help audiences assess their current situation and outlook. A good speaker can also find ways to monitor and manage their personal and collective attitudes. Visit here for more information.

If you’re interested in having a speaker offer participants in any project, group, or enterprise advice regarding the essential subject of attitude, look for a figure with extensive experience as an attitude speaker. This type of speaker has benefited from having seen many different groups and found ways to help them make the adjustments necessary to collaborate in more balanced and efficient ways.

WHY SALES TRAINING IS SO IMPORTANT

November 2nd, 2017 by

Why sales training is so important is an interesting topic. Some people think that the word “sales” is a bad word. However, if you think about it, we’re all involved in sales from the time that we’re born. A baby cries when it’s hungry. By doing so, it’s selling its mother the idea that it’s time to get fed. Did you ever see a child walk into a grocery store with its mother and keep saying, “I want a lollipop”? The child will keep saying that phrase until it sells the idea. Soon, the child is licking on one.

When we’re teenagers, we may sell our parents on the idea that we get to use the car to go to a dance. Couples sell each other on ideas ranging from where to live to how to manage money and where to vacation. We sell people on our idea when we start a business or sell a supervisor on the fact that we should get a raise.

Thus, some form of sales training can only help us focus more on what we want in life. In this article, I want to focus on sales training as it pertains to a product or a service. If you want to improve your success in sales, the following steps could help you gain more confidence and better results.

1. WHY SALES TRAINING IS SO IMPORTANT BEGINS WITH A REASON

Why sales training is so important.Why sales training is so important is clarified in an amazing book. Dale Carnegie, in the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, said that people are creatures of emotion rather than logic. And that they will do things for REASONS and not for logic. Thus, if you want to excel in sales, we have to identify an exciting reason for you to excel in sales. It’s got to be more than food, shelter, and clothing. Those things are important, but not exciting.

Napoleon Hill, in the book “Think and Grow Rich”, said: When the WHY is exciting enough, the HOW doesn’t matter. The WHY needs to be a reward, something fun you would do just for you. Not something for your spouse or for your family. Something just for you. You’ll do more for everybody when you do more for you.

If you keep putting off something you’ve wanted for a long time, after a while you get depressed. The bottom line, when we’re all honest with ourselves, is this: What’s in it for me?

Thus, I suggest you get a picture of something you want that, with some effort, you could afford in a few months. It may be a new set of golf clubs, tickets to a special event, a weekend away, a new car – whatever. Get a picture of that reward, about the size of a business card. On the other side of the card, print some positive affirmations such as:

Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I’m a very confident, talented, and successful person. I earn at least _______ per month as a sales leader. I’m getting (whatever your reward is) and I am excited.

Whatever other traits you may want, add them in the form of an affirmation. Print out the affirmations on a card about the size of a business card. Put the picture of your reward and the affirmations back-to-back, go to Fedex Office, and have that laminated. Then, read your affirmations out loud the first thing each morning and the last things each night. And, each time, look at your picture. Don’t analyze what’s on your card. Just read your affirmations with conviction and look at your picture. Watch what wonderful things are about to happen in the next 90 days!

2. JOIN TOASTMASTERS OR TAKE THE DALE CARNEGIE COURSE

Why sales training is so important.Why sales training is so important shows up in public speaking. To excel in sales, it’s important to gain confidence. Your ability to get up and speak in front of people is a shortcut to your greater success. That also builds great confidence. Thus, I suggest you either join a local Toastmaster group or take the Dale Carnegie Course. In both of these situations, you’ll work with other people who also want to gain confidence in front of people and they will encourage you.

In order to excel in sales, we have to realize that buying decisions are often made in the initial seconds that we meet with a buyer. Thus, we have to make every interaction with buyers count. They can tell very quickly if the salesperson is a confident person or not. These days, buyers have a lot of options and very little time.

Thus, being able to speak confidently in front of a group of people will translate to being confident in front of one person. Many years ago, while in college, I took the Dale Carnegie course. I believe that the valuable lessons I learned in that course have been responsible for my success in sales and as a professional speaker. Not only was it a great program for speaking confidently in front of others, but it was also a great course in human relations, dealing with other people, looking at things from the other person’s point of view, and becoming an exceptional listener.

3. LISTEN MORE AND TALK LESS

Why sales training is so important.Why sales training is so important means talking less. In my many years of being a speaker and trainer for sales teams, I’ve come to realize that salespeople talk too much. I find that an excessive amount of sales training, that teaches people all types of closing techniques, results in salespeople talking too much. They apply those closing techniques, hoping to use the right one to get the sale.

I have found that the person who controls the conversation is not the one whose talking. It’s the one who’s asking the questions. God gave us two ears and one mouth. Maybe we should listen twice as much as we talk. I have also found that people would rather buy than be sold. Thus, if we let them do most of the talking, they may talk themselves into buying.

A good question to begin with, in a sales situation, is: “What is your toughest challenge concerning __________?” Then, as they talk, take notes. And not electronically. If we take notes on a phone or laptop, they can’t tell if we’re really taking notes or checking our email. Take notes on a notepad. Dale Carnegie, in the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, said that the greatest honor we pay anyone is RAPT attention – complete, total attention. Taking notes on paper, when a customer talks, pays total attention to them.

Then, when presenting a specific product or service, give the basic benefits of it and then ask, “What do you like best about this?” Let that person come up with the benefits and thus persuade themselves. And, if the product is not perfectly suited for the buyer, ask them: “What could we do to improve this product or service so it would work perfectly for you?”

It’s valuable to let a buyer come up with a solution. Then, when they do, they will fight for their own ideas.

4. CREATE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS

Why sales training is so important.Why sales training is so important focuses on relationships. The most successful salespeople are the ones who create great relationships. I have found that those who do best in sales are genuinely interested in other people and that becomes the focus of their sales process. They’re not the ones who know the most about their product or service. In fact, they often rely on others at their company for the technical details. They are simply very good at creating great relationships and getting other people to like them. Unless price is the definitive point of purchase, I believe that people buy from people they trust and like.

The most successful salespeople realize that everybody’s favorite topic is THEM. Thus, they let the prospects talk about themselves. They know how to get conversations started by asking questions that the other person will enjoy answering. Questions such as the following:

Where are you from originally?

(If not from here) What brought you here?

(If from here) Have you lived here all your life?

Do you have a family?

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A natural way to lead into some of these questions, when meeting in a prospect’s office, is to notice family pictures and ask about the people in the pictures. And, as the prospect answers the above questions, make note of the answers so you can refer to them in the future.

Use short notes, on hand-written cards, to further create great relationships. Don’t use notes with a company logo. Just get blank cards with a design on the cover, including your business card behind the card, and they may think that you picked it up just for them. Have no return address on the back of the cards, mark the word “Personal” on the lower left corner so it will bypass gatekeepers, and use commemorative stamps. Keep a supply of these handy and use them immediately after leaving a prospect’s office.

Why sales training is so important? Because, without some specific ideas to give you an edge, you won’t achieve the success you desire from sales. The ideas above are not covered in traditional sales training programs. However, they have been proven to be highly effective and make you stand out from the crowd.

WHY SALES TRAINING IS SO IMPORTANT DAILY AFFIRMATION

“Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I have identified my next reward, am taking a public speaking course, am a very good listener, and I create great relationships.”

WHY MOTIVATION IS SO IMPORTANT

October 25th, 2017 by

Why motivation is so important is a question that is often asked by many people. The majority of people don’t understand why a few people seem to be motivated all the time while many people aren’t the same. As a professional speaker, it took me a while to realize that I cannot motivate anyone in my audiences. The only way for me to truly motivate someone is to spend all day, every day, with them. I’ll need to hold their hand and guide them through every moment of the day. That’s just not feasible and has no lasting value.

All I can do is share good, proven ideas and see what happens. The people who are motivated will pick up some of those ideas and run with them. To the rest, my time with them will be soon forgotten.

Why motivation is so important? Without motivation, Columbus wouldn’t have sailed for the new world, Edison would not have invented the light bulb, Ford the car, the Wright Brothers the airplane. At the same time, without motivation, people wouldn’t go after a college degree, would not lose weight, and wouldn’t work to improve a relationship. They would not strive to become better with money and would not go after a bigger position at work. Thus, to achieve any level of success in life, we’ve got to realize that motivation is very important. If you want to achieve more in your life, and you’re not sure how to get motivated, here are 5 steps you can take.

1. WHY MOTIVATION IS SO IMPORTANT BECOMES APPARENT WITH A BLUEPRINT

Why is motivation so importantWhy motivation is so important? It’s like a blueprint for your future. In one of my careers, I was a carpenter and a builder, following my father’s work. When I was 13 or 14, we lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in a small house. My parents decided to add a bathroom, a den, and two bedrooms onto the house. My father didn’t just order a bunch of wood, have it dropped off in our backyard, and sit back, hoping that the extension onto the house would magically appear.

Nope. My father had blueprints drawn, with every detail, showing exactly what was about to be built. Without specific plans, showing every detail, that building project would have never become a reality. As I helped my father build that extension, we followed the blueprints to the letter. Thus, at the end, the project turned out great because we followed a specific, written plan.

How do most people go about their lives? With no specific, written goals. Thus, they wonder why life throws them curves. It’s like a boat with no rudder. It’s going to end up wherever the wind chooses. No matter how old you are, don’t waste your time on what could have been. The only thing we have is this moment, a moment that will be the past of 5 years from now.

Start your written plan NOW. There’s a wonderful saying, “Follow your dreams, they know the way.” Thus, write down what you want in your life 5 years from today. Where do you want to live? How do you want your family situation to look and where do you want to be in your career. If you need to improve your health or financial situation, write down where you want to be in 5 years. Then, break those goals down to what portions you need to accomplish in the next 12 months. Next, break those goals down to the steps necessary in the next 30 days. If you don’t believe some of those goals, lower them until you do believe. Now take action on those 30-day goals. Walt Disney said, “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

Get pictures of your goals and post them where you can see them every day. Look at those pictures and envision yourself in them! Just the fact that you have formed a clear blueprint of your future, and are taking small, initial steps, will help motivate you.

2. FOR THINGS TO CHANGE, WE’VE GOT TO CHANGE

Why is motivation so importantWhy motivation is so important? It makes you a better person. In order to achieve your dreams, some personal development steps may need to be taken. It’s true, for things to change, we’ve got to change. Thus, in order to get motivated, you may want to declare some positive affirmations that will help your mind believe that you could achieve your goals blueprint. Here are some affirmations that I would suggest you declare, out loud, the first thing each morning and the last thing each night while you look at your pictures.

Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I create great relationships, improve my health regularly, am managing my money productively, and creating opportunities at work to move ahead. I’m excited about my goals and am taking steps each day to accomplish them. I have a great attitude every day!

3. TAKE CONTROL OF FEAR

Why motivation is so importantWhy motivation is so important? It helps us overcome fear. Many people don’t get motivated to accomplish greatness because of fear. They’re afraid they will fail, that they may look foolish to others. If this is your problem, we have to find a way to deal with it so you can be properly motivated to achieve a great future. As the sign says, “On the other side of fear is freedom!” Action, even small steps, in the right direction, is a great antidote to fear.

The saying goes, “Fear knocked at the door, faith answered, and no one was there.” Another saying: “Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.” Much of what we worry about never happens. Thus, fear is a big waste of time. If you make an effort and fail, in most cases you can start again. Total failure is not making any effort.

If fear is a problem for you, I suggest you read the Dale Carnegie book “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living.” He suggests that we live in day-tight compartments, focus on only what we can do today that is productive. Even if it’s a small step. Carnegie said that, if you’re worried about something, write down what you are worried about. Then write down what is the worst that could happen. Next, write down an action plan of what you would do if the worst were to happen. In most cases, this process will get rid of the fear. In addition, your positive daily affirmations will help strengthen your belief in your dreams. Strong beliefs, in the right direction, are a great antidote to worry.

4. ATTITUDE IS A CHOICE

Why motivation is so importantWhy motivation is so important? It helps to improve our attitude. And attitude is everything! No matter which way we look at our future, a bad attitude will kill motivation. Every morning, when we each wake up, we make a subconscious choice as to our attitude. Most people, because it’s simply easier, will gravitate toward a negative attitude and look at what’s wrong with their lives. The people who work at positive motivation, make an effort to direct their daily attitude in the right direction. They realize that it isn’t easy, but they know that it’s very important!

Since reading builds character, the right books can help our attitude greatly. It’s better to read one or two books, over and over again, than to read a bunch of books one time only. Repetition is the mother of skill. I suggest two of the best attitude and goal-setting books ever written. They are “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie and “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.

In order to stay motivated, I suggest reading one or two pages in each book every day. Then, when you get through reading them, read them again. Read each book at least 3 or 4 times during the next couple of years. And, if you get depressed about the progress with your goals, pick up either book and read a page. The people stories and the stories about achievements of some very successful people will motivate you.

5. CREATE A MASTERMIND GROUP

Why motivation is so importantWhy motivation is so important? It helps us identify with whom we should spend time. Staying motivated means you may need to stay away from certain people. We are the total sum of the five people we spend the most time with on a regular basis. Thus, if your friends don’t have specific goals that are admirable, maybe you need to get some new friends. Look for goal-oriented people who care about their personal relationships, stay healthy, manage money productively, have a positive attitude, and are working on exciting goals for their future.

Napoleon Hill, in “Think and Grow Rich”, described what he called a “Mastermind Group.” He defined that as a group of good people, coming together in a spirit of harmony, to encourage each other to achieve their dreams. This group could be anywhere from three to eight or nine people. Get together on a regular basis, maybe every two weeks, or monthly, and report to each other your progress on your most important goals. Look for ways to help each other achieve your dreams. Hill describes in the book a mastermind group, a long time ago, that included people like Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and Alexander Graham Bell. They used to get together regularly, share ideas, and encourage each other.

There you have it. Motivation is very important if we want our lives to be better. Zig Ziglar, the famous speaker, said: “Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.”

DAILY MOTIVATION AFFIRMATIONS

“Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I create great relationships, improve my health regularly, am managing my money productively, and creating opportunities at work to move ahead. I’m excited about my goals and am taking steps each day to accomplish them. I have a great attitude every day!”

END YOUR EVENT WITH A BANG

October 23rd, 2017 by

End your event with a bang and it could make a positive difference in your bottom line! If you’re getting ready to attend a company event, you might be prepared for good food, team building activities, and presentations. However, getting a special closing speaker can really put the icing on the cake at an event that was meant to be memorable. A charismatic speech provides laughs, motivation, and a sense that a company cares about its employees. Whether it’s a conference or a holiday party, the benefits of a professional closing keynote speaker on attitude are almost infinite.

END YOUR EVENT WITH A BANG MEANS BETTER MORALE, MORE MONEY

Often an elephant in the room, morale is hard to talk about. But if you notice that the people in the office seem stressed or tired, it might be time for a pep talk. An attitude expert won’t have a bunch of mindless platitudes to share; he has cultivated a rich career and was in the same position as many people in your company at one point. He can share what kept him going and how a change in his state of mind boosted his performance. The bottom line is that providing people with tips on how to change their behavior for the better can increase the bottom line for your company.

MORNING BIRDS GET THE WORM

What do you do when you wake up in the morning? Do you rush to finish your morning routine or do you take a few moments to collect your thoughts before heading out? Believe it or not, it’s those few meditative moments that can change your world. No matter how busy your schedule, or what type of job you have, everyone should be taking the time to wonder “How can I be my best version of myself today?” A closing keynote speaker on attitude can share the stream of thoughts that run through his head and discuss how he transforms them into positive actions.

LEAVE COMPLAINTS AT THE DOOR

Voicing your concerns over a workload, or how someone got an unfair promotion, doesn’t help anyone. In fact, it subjects your coworkers to a toxic state of mind that might rub off on customers. The solution is simple: don’t. When you simply do the work that’s required, to the best of your ability, your performance will go up by a few notches.

A closing keynote speaker on attitude is the perfect addition to delicious food or exciting games. You and your coworkers can learn a lot about how to improve themselves and encourage their team while having a great time. Visit boazpower.com for more information.

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future and you’ll suddenly notice that things will improve. As a result, you’ll get a raise, get a promotion, or get more recognition. Most people, with their negative attitude or bad decisions, actually sabotage their future. Thus, they wonder why things don’t work out for them. They may feel that the universe has it out for them and they never get any breaks. They may feel that they never have good luck.

In reality, for most people, none of those things really affect their future. It is usually a few simple things that high achievers realize are roadblocks that must be avoided.

If you want to advance your career, get a raise, obtain an advanced degree, or whatever, here are some steps to take in order to make sure that you do not sabotage your future.

1. DISCOVER HOW TO SABOTAGE-PROOF YOUR FUTURE BY CHANGING YOUR BELIEFS

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future by being aware that you’re just 6 inches away from greater success – the distance between your ears. As a result, the beliefs that you have, whether good or bad, dictate your actions. Most people have been programmed from their past to think in certain ways that don’t help them. Thus, if your parents struggled with money, you may have a scarcity mentality. If people in your past had negative attitudes, chances are that you have that belief in your attitude.

There’s a computer term that explains how the brain works. It’s called GIGO – garbage in, garbage out. Thus, if we program our minds with a scarcity mentality, then we’ll get actions that come from a point of scarcity. The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between something real and something imagined. Thus, whatever we’re thinking, good or bad, is taken by our minds as being real and then we act accordingly.

We’re all talking to ourselves at the rate of 1,500 words per minute. Most of those words, by nature, are negative. As a result, negative thoughts can lead to fear, apprehension, and insecurity. These attributes can sabotage a future. Thus, we have to take specific steps to overcome the negative inputs of our past and change our thoughts to a prosperity mentality. There is no law that says we can’t do that.

Use Positive Affirmations

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future begins with positive affirmations – directions for the mind. Thus, if you need to improve your beliefs, the following affirmations will help:

Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I spend time with positive, supportive people, am constantly learning and improving my personal development, staying out of debt, and saving money. Opportunities come to me from all directions. I am very creative, a great leader, and I solve problems. I am prosperous and I am a Champion!

State these affirmations, or supportive beliefs, the first thing every morning and the last thing every night, without analysis, and watch what happens in the next 90 days. We’re programming your mind for prosperity and expecting good things to happen.

2. BE CAREFUL WHO YOU ARE AROUND

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future means being careful with the people around us. It is said that we are the total sum of the five people we spend the most time with through the years. Thus, identify those five people and take inventory. Are these people successful? Do they live healthy lives? Do these people have happy, loving families? Are they prosperous and ambitious, responsible with money and supportive of your goals? Everyone in our lives is a member of one of two unions – either the building crew or the wrecking crew!

Take a mental inventory of those people’s lives. If you cannot answer “Yes” to the above questions, then spending time with these people is probably sabotaging your life. Whatever we focus on expands. If these people tend to have a negative attitude, you will expand that into your life. When they operate from a position of lack or fear, you will also expand that in your life. If they live paycheck to paycheck, spend money recklessly, and don’t have much in savings, those things will affect your life. May I suggest you stop listening to people who don’t have any money!

If too much of this sounds familiar, maybe it’s time to fire some of your friends. Seek out people who are more successful than you and ask them for advice. People are honored when we ask them for advice. Invite such people to lunch and look for a way to be of service to them. Dale Carnegie, in the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, said that people are as interested in us as we are in them. Show a lot of interest in people who are successful, get a prosperity attitude, and they will show interest in you. Look for ways to spend more time with people like that.

3. CONTINUE YOUR EDUCATION

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future has a lot to do with continuous education. Most people stop their education when they graduate from college or a trade school. They figure that they’ve obtained their basic education and now it’s time to go to work. That line of thinking has sabotage written all over it. That’s when our real education should begin! High achievers are constantly learning and they’re always looking for ways to improve their people skills.

Research has shown that the most successful people aren’t the ones who know the most about their chosen profession. It isn’t the technical skills that result in people being happier and more successful. The reality is that the people who make the most money, and are the most successful, are the ones who are continuously learning and have developed their people skills way above average.

Reading, the right books, over and over, is a very productive way to continue our education. I have found that it’s much more productive to read one or two books, over and over, rather than a lot of books, one time only. I recommend two foundational books that have helped more people become successful than most any other books. They are How to Win Friends and Influence People and Think and Grow Rich.

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future.Read those two books at least three times over the next year or two and see what happens. Underline parts that seem important to you. Make them your success textbooks.

I would also recommend “The Dale Carnegie Course”. I took the course many years ago and found that it is an exceptional combination of human relations training as well as cultivating confidence while speaking in front of people. If you have an employee with great potential, and you feel that more confidence would help that person, send them to the course and watch what happens!

4. MANAGE YOUR MONEY PRODUCTIVELY

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future has much to do with how you manage money. Just as there are no courses in ordinary schooling on how to get along with people, there are also very few courses in how to manage money. Whether we feel comfortable or not with money has much to do with our confidence and our success. Thus, mishandling our money is a sure-fire way to sabotage our future.

If you were raised in a household where money was in short supply, you might have grown up thinking that you don’t deserve to have a lot of it. As a result, if your parents were always in debt, that tendency may have followed you into adulthood.

As adults, it’s not how much money we make. It’s how we manage it. If we don’t manage money well at the beginning of our career, when money may not be plentiful, we will never manage money when our income grows in the future. It’s a fact that when most people get raises, their expenditures go up.

Live a Little Below Your Means!

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future by realizing that most people live above their means and are usually a few weeks away from financial disaster. Successful people live a little below their means. Thus, they save a set percentage of their income every month. They pay in cash wherever possible and, if they want to buy something special, they often save for it rather than charging it. Realizing that credit card money is not really theirs, they use credit cards very sparingly and never carry balances from one month to another.

How to sabotage-proof your future.If you’re in debt at the moment, make it an important goal to stop charging, pay off those debts, and save money. Having money in the bank, and no debts, gives us confidence and will bring more opportunities our way. Also, carry a 100 dollar bill! That will make you feel prosperous. Have it where you can see it regularly in your wallet or purse. Also, put some 20 dollar bills around the house. Cash is real to our minds. Checks and credit cards are like playing Monopoly. Whatever we focus on expands. Thus, we want cash all around you!

Let take the word “sabotage” out of your future by paying attention to the 4 points above. Take action on these ideas and see what happens in the next few years. You’ll be getting rid of the roadblocks along the highway of life and allow very good things to happen down the road.

A PROSPERITY DAILY AFFIRMATION

“Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I spend time with positive, supportive people, am constantly learning and improving my personal development, staying out of debt, and saving money. Opportunities come to me from all directions. I am very creative, a great leader, and I solve problems. I am prosperous and I am a Champion!”

PEACEFULNESS IS IMPORTANT!

September 17th, 2017 by

Peacefulness is important to all of us. When I was a newscaster on a radio station in Tulsa, Oklahoma, while in high school in 1965, there was a peaceful song on the radio. “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel, had just been released. It was a beautiful and soothing melody.

PEACEFULNESS AT SOOKE HARBOUR HOUSE!

I was reminded of that song when I arrived to speak for a group at the Sooke Harbour House, about an hour’s drive from the airport on Victoria Island in British Columbia.

Hence, if you look closely at the picture I took above, you can see a totem pole standing guard to make sure no one disturbs the peacefulness of this place. As a result, I was struck by the beauty and the majestic silence that I found there. Other than the harbor water gently lapping onto the rocks, it was total silence. This was simply amazing!

AND THE VISION THAT WAS PLANTED IN MY BRAIN…

As the line from the Simon & Garfunkel song says, “And the vision that was planted in my brain, still remains, within the sound of silence.”

Did you ever notice that there’s so much noise in our everyday lives: TV sets are on, people talking on the phone, traffic, music blaring into headphones.

Thus, it was almost a shock to the system to stand there at the Sooke Harbour House, overlooking the bay, and hearing the sound of silence. Maybe we should make a conscious effort to find such a place sometimes and touch the sound of silence.

A SILENCE DAILY AFFIRMATION

“I’m finding places where I can experience the sound of silence.”

ATTITUDE CAN BE ADJUSTED!

September 11th, 2017 by

Attitude means everything and it needs to be adjusted on a regular basis. I learned an important lesson about adjusting our attitude when I recently spoke in St. Louis and stopped by the famous Gateway Arch.

THE WORLD’S TALLEST ARCH

According to Wikipedia, “The Gateway Arch is a 630-foot monument in St. Louis. Clad in stainless steel and built in the form of an inverted, weighted catenary arch, it is the world’s tallest arch. It’s also the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere, and Missouri’s tallest building.

Built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States, and officially dedicated to ‘the American people,’ it is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and has become an internationally recognized symbol of St. Louis, as well as a popular tourist attraction.”

The Gateway Arch took two and a half years to construct and was opened to the public in 1967. It is located at the site of where St. Louis was founded, on the bank of the Mississippi River.

I’ve had the amazing experience of riding the unique elevator system in the arch that takes visitors to the observation deck at the top. Most noteworthy is the bird’s eye view of the city of St. Louis that one gets at the top. Especially relevant is the fact that the building of The Arch was an engineering marvel! I would guess that, with the builders of this incredible monument, they would have agreed that attitude means everything!

IT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENS, ITS HOW WE REACT!

Most people take a four-minute tram in either one of the legs to get to the top of The Arch. Each tram is a chain of eight cylindrical, five-seat compartments, that swing like Ferris-wheel cars as they go up and down.

Thus, in order to keep the passengers level, these compartments make a series of adjustments as they move up and down The Arch. In reality, those adjustments are similar to the changes that happen in each of our lives.

Unexpected things happen to all of us, good or bad, and we have to react. Therefore, if we react with a bad mood, that could affect the outcome negatively. Thus, it’s not what happens, it’s how we react and attitude is everything. Hence, Champions have bad moments. However, they just react more quickly and look for any positive step they could take to make things better.

Just like the tram compartments at the St. Louis Arch, life is a series of adjustments. Hence, if these adjustments are difficult for you, the following affirmation may help.

ATTITUDE MEANS EVERYTHING DAILY AFFIRMATION

“I look for the good in any difficult situation and look for a productive step I can can take immediately!”

A GREAT ATTITUDE BEGINS BY BEING REAL NICE!

September 4th, 2017 by

A great attitude does indeed begin by being real nice. Thus, you would think that simple concept would be understood by everyone. However, it is not. I learned a lot about being real nice when I had a flight cancellation at Washington’s Dulles Airport for a speaking event.

Even though my United flight from Dulles to Charlotte was canceled due to bad weather, I learned that there was a later flight on American. However, a call to United showed there were no seats available on that flight.

TERESA AND SOPHIA CAME TO MY RESCUE!

That’s when two lovely ladies came to my rescue. They were Teresa Alder, on the left in the picture above, and Sophia Wentz on the right. We were all on my canceled flight and, as we got off, we somehow connected in the gate area. They both happen to work for United, live in Charlotte and commute to Dulles to work every week.

Hearing of my dilemma, they told me to come with them and soon we were heading to the American Airlines gate. They were determined to get all three of us on the American flight to Charlotte.

I don’t know what they said, but that’s exactly what they did. Thus, all three of us got on the American flight and I got to Charlotte.

WHY DON’T WE BE REAL NICE?

The bottom line of one of the books I promote a lot, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, is how to be real nice and how that improves our attitude. It’s as simple as that.

Teresa and Sophia went out of their way to be real nice to me and I was very grateful. What did they want from me? Nothing. They just wanted to be helpful. And, as you can see from the picture, they did it with a smile!

My mother said: Be a planter of good seeds and don’t look for a crop in return. Teresa and Sophia planted some wonderful seeds of appreciation in my mind and I will remember their kindness for a long time to come.

Teresa and Sophia were two lovely angels who save my day.

ATTITUDE DAILY AFFIRMATION

“I have a great attitude and I’m real nice to people every day!”
