Think You Don’t Create Your Own Reality?

Here’s a video from FTF Films on Victim Mentality.
So if you could reverse that and create a Victor Mentality instead, would you?

It would require taking responsibility for your circumstances right now and resisting the temptation to blame parents, the economy, the government, a spouse, a lover, etc.

You would be creating your Life. Are you up to it?

MLM: Just Another Part of the Ride

About 7 years ago when I first heard Personal Development and the idea that our thoughts create reality connected with Network Marketing, I was incredulous. I found it hard to believe that what I thought and believed had anything to do with my business success. 

Let’s face it, how many car salespeople or brokers concern themselves with such things? I was starting a networking business and needed to do the things necessary to build it. What was all this New Age stuff to do with that? 

Well, maybe those salespeople and brokers should pay attention, because now I know that seven years ago my education in my innate powers was just beginning. 

The very last part of the video presentation below ends with these words: 

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, “Is this real or is this just a ride?’ and other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say, ‘Hey, Don’t worry, don’t be afraid ever because . . . this is just a ride.'”

MLM or network marketing is just an attraction, another ride at the amusement park.

Don’t be afraid to let out a good scream!

Thought and Action

Thought Brings What You Want

and with Action,

It Is Received.

Intention and Attention IS the Secret

There is NO secret to The Secret. It is constantly working for you NOW and has been since you were born. There is NOTHING mysterious about it. The movie just served to bring it to a greater number of peoples’ Attention.

It works like this: First is your Intention. Whatever is in your Mind CONSTANTLY will be created or manifested. So if you hold in your Mind the debt on your credit card, you will have debt on your credit card just as you will have more health if that is what you hold in your Mind. It is incredibly simple!

Consequently the first step is coming to real-ize what it is You INTEND to create.

Second is your Attention. Whatever is being held in your Mind is what you are Attending to. In essence you are welcoming it, making a place for it to ‘Enter and make Itself comfortable’.  It is that simple.

So you have a choice: Let Others’ thoughts come and go at THEIR behest or You welcoming thoughts and their resulting manifestation by holding in your Mind Your thoughts at YOUR behest.

The Key to the Secrets is You entertaining the thoughts that match your conscious Desire and then letting your Subconscious get to work.

Control your thoughts or someone else will.

The Aphorism Salon – Create Your Happiness

“SOME PURSUE HAPPINESS, OTHERS CREATE IT.”

This one’s short and sweet. And needs little explanation. some-pursue-happiness

As Abraham Lincoln so famously said, “Happiness is a decision.”

Have you ever tried to grab a fistful of water? It’s a bit like chasing Happiness. Or Money. The hotter the pursuit, the better the eluding done by the pursued.

Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Better hunters know that instead of expending energy chasing, it’s a better strategy to stay put and create a lure to attract the desired object. And this is where your Intention and Attention come in.

Create your Happiness by determining and isolating in your Heart your Passion – an “inside job” if there ever was one. Then put your Attention on it by feeding it Action “out there” in the Field of Play. Not Activity but Action – laser-like, focused and determined Action with the desired Outcome already in Mind.

That’s getting your Heart’s Passionate Intent and your Mind’s Quiet Attention working in a reciprocating loop creating your Joy and Happiness.

How do you feel about that? Happy, Appreciative, Skeptical?

The Aphorism Salon – Make Peace With Your Past . . .

There is a controversy of sorts on one of the better networking sites right now. One of the regular contributors to the site posted a statement in the forum accusing a networking guru of some unscrupulous activity, without naming names or providing proof of the allegations. Many of the comments have been lauding the accuser’s actions, none of which are substantiated, and calling the accuser courageous for “outing” the guru.

I prefer not to get into the particulars since they don’t add anything to my purpose for writing about this episode. However, I will mention this fact: the person who posted the unfounded allegations was at one time in this particular guru’s downline, which probably explains  quite a lot. make-peace-with-your-past3

Attraction Marketing, all the rage in networking, comes down to this: You attract what You project. Put on a happy, positive face; voice a grateful and respectful message and you’ll attract those who you’ll want to work with, those who see life as ‘giving before getting’, and those who approach it as a vast sea of pure potential that can be molded to their desires by first aligning their own hearts and minds and then masterminding with yours and others in your business or on your team.

Or you and they can go through life bitter and resentful, attracting malcontents hellbent on pulling down instead of building up lives. As usual John’s salon had an aphorism in its window that could serve us all:

MAKE PEACE WITH YOUR PAST SO IT WON’T SCREW UP YOUR PRESENT.

The choice as always is yours. We are all indeed self-made. Be one of the successful ones who will proudly admit personal power, accepting the accolades and assuming the responsibilities.

How do you feel about that?

The Aphorism Salon – Pay Attention

The trouble with most people is they don’t listen – TO THEMSELVES!  They know Get-Rich-Quick schemes are exactly that, yet they continue to join and support them. It’s the “Something for Nothing” mentality.

Same thing goes for the Law of Attraction. The general expectation, after watching the movie THE SECRET, was to <POP> a thought in one’s head and voila! One’s Heart’s Desire would be manifest.  Our Physical Universe just doesn’t work like that. While it’s true that your outertv5world will shape itself to the inner world created by your thoughts, some deliberate action is required. And that’s what I’d like to address.  Especially the idea of paying attention.

You see, there really is “Nothing for Nothing” or, “Everything has its Price”. And sometimes we pay for something in a  currency other than money. We can pay in how and to what we bend our minds.

The Latin verb attendere is the root of our word attention, and it means “to turn or bend one’s mind towards“. Giving or paying attention is the clear, decisive act by the mind of taking possession of someone or something chosen out of several possibilities. ‘Paying attention’ conversely suggests ignoring some possibilities in order to deal effectively with the chosen object of your attention. It also suggests conscious control.

To purposefully attract into your life what you desire, you’d best get a handle on your attention. So I’ll ask you this: How much TV do you watch? What movies? Oh, just the news. I see, just enough to shake your confidence and put a little bit of fear into you. A dose of reality, huh?

The photo above shows John’s whiteboard in his salon. I’ve written about it before. This week’s aphorism hit me, as usual, right in the solar plexus. Interpretation:  Life isn’t what you see on TV or hear on the radio or read in a newspaper, magazine or novel. Life is what you pay attention to, and consequently, attract.

If you’re not attracting what you desire, pay attention to what you’re paying attention to.

Among the things that don’t deserve your attention are: TV & radio, especially the news; newspapers; advertisements & billboards; shopping malls; people you have no interest in; excessive noise; driving; spam Email and junk mail; Self-criticism; and people telling you your dream of owning your life is not real.

Creating Your Purpose – Crafting Your WHY

In my last post I used something Joseph Campbell said to make the point that we create our lives – or not. If we do not inform and infuse meaning and purpose into our lives, they have none. Life is meaningless unless we do something about it.

Since nothing could be more undesirable than living a meaningless life, here’s how to take care of that. Here is a point-by-point plan to craft your life’s WHY, something that MUST be about YOU. Let me remind You that this is NOT Selfish in the way most people take that to mean.

I have borrowed the outline from one of my team’s mentors, Sarah Thompson, and have then made it my own. Take the time to Use it. It works. And thank you Sarah.

  1. Accept & Believe that You have Powers beyond your Imagination.
  2. Expand your Imagination to catch up to those Latent Powers to become anything You desire Becoming.
  3. Create a Plan. Work at it. Adjust it as required. (It is a living, breathing entity.)
  4. You have already – no matter what your age is now – been many people: a child, a youngster, a brother or sister, a son or daughter, a boy or girl friend, a student, a parent, a serviceman or servicewoman, a grandparent. Understand ALL these experiences helped you attained a slightly different outward personality, each time leading to a new You.
  5. Using these experiences, accept that You are capable of Changing and have done so, but mostly Unconsciously and as situations demanded.
  6. KNOW it’s your turn to Consciously Change, on Your Demand.
  7. Take the time to reflect, putting No Time Limit or Pressure on Yourself.
  8. Know Yourself- Know Your Story. What has happened to You & Your life? Has your life turned out the way you thought it would?
  9. WHAT happened to Your Dreams? What filters are working against You? What conditioning beliefs are not serving You? How do You interpret You, Your Life and Your Beliefs? Where did You get those Beliefs?
  10. Where do You want to be in 5 years . . . in 2 years . . . next year . . . in 6 months . . . next month . . . in 2 weeks?
  11. What do You desire in your relationships with your spouse, children, parents, neighbors, colleagues?
  12. How do you recreate yourself? What thrills You & gives You goosebumps? What fulfills You & makes You happy?
  13. What are You grateful for and do You regularly express Gratitude?
  14. Decide on a Goal in each of these areas: Personal Values, Relationships, Personal Freedom.
  15. Craft your Self-Talk that is Synchronized with Your newly designed  and crafted ‘WHY’.

“Life Is Tough . . . It’s Even Tougher When We’re Ignorant”

There’s this little shop in my neighborhood that has all sorts of bric-a-brac in its window, including a small whiteboard. On it the shop’s eccentric owner posts these short, quirky and yet insightful little bits of wisdom. A few days ago the board read:  

Life is tough – it’s even tougher when you’re stupid. 

Hit me right between the eyes. I mean, I’ve been stupid, had stupid ideas and done stupid things. And they’ve all made my life more difficult. Well, maybe stupid is not accurate and too harsh. Maybe ignorant is more like it. Anyway. . .

The list is long and it touches every part of my life but since this blog is as much about networking as it is about personal development, let’s go there. Let’s look at how being ignorant of the industry cost me – in many ways.

·      I totally fell in love with the product, thinking that product quality or uniqueness was enough to insure my success. I believed all I had to do was SELL and the rest would be my million dollar dream come true.

·      I paid absolutely no attention to the compensation plan. I wouldn’t ignore how I was to be paid in a conventional job, but come MLM, I totally disregarded it.

·      I spent THOUSANDS on one company’s products UPFRONT. I had so much inventory from this frontloading tactic that I wound up giving or throwing the product away. 

·      I bought leads at the advice of my sponsoring upline, trusting that my sponsors were working with me toward my success. The people I spoke to NEVER heard of my company or had simply filled out an online survey to “get stuff”.

·      I got into a reverse funneling system that offered a standard marketing and advertising back office site but charged me $300 EACH MONTH to host it. Luckily education put an end to that financial drain. 

Yes, I got educated. I made my life a lot easier by educating myself and getting the mentorship I needed to succeed in this industry. I just wish I had read that Google ad sooner! 

The ad I read got me a free copy of SUCCESS IN 10 STEPS by Michael Dlouhy.  If you need help avoiding many of these MLM landmines and want a copy of the map through the field, please help yourself on the right sidebar. 

And of course you can contact me at any time.

I mean, your MLM Networking Life is tough enough as it is. Don’t make it tougher. Get answers, get mentoring.
