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!

How to Fix YOUR Economy

Let’s be honest for a moment.

Your economy begins in YOUR home, regardless of what they are doing in Washington. Regardless of the outcome of the election this November.

I mean historically, does the government instill confidence in you to fix the economy? Or to fix ANYTHING?

Let the Dimwits and the Repulsives squabble over THE economy. We, you and I, should be concerned with OUR OWN economies respectively. Because we know what we can do.

The simplest and least costly way to get a handle on this is to get paid for something you are already doing. In fact, it is something you’ve been doing since you were 5 or 6 years old.

What’s that?

Recommending.

Referring people to products or services that you use and enjoy and feel good about.

As I said you did it when you loved a new breakfast cereal and a new TV serial. You do it when you find a great restaurant and when you come across a magical, awesome, fabulous book or movie.

You just never got paid for doing it before.

Want to change that?

Check out this brief video.

Have a question? Email me. tony@ajlauria.com

You can also get a copy of a blueprint that lays out what this is all about, what to look for and what to avoid. There’s no cost for the download.

How To Thumb Your Nose At The Tax Man

The ‘Thought of the Day’ from one of my inbox newsletters was this:

“People try to live within their income so they can afford to pay taxes to a government that can’t live within its income.” ~ Robert Half

SMACK! Right between the eyes!

But having to feed that dependent child, aka the Government, doesn’t upset me as much as it used to. Why? Because I have a simple way of generating some extra money.

So now that you have to keep feeding that OTHER dependent child, aka the Government, you might consider another means of income so you don’t have to sacrifice your quality of life.

A second means of income that doesn’t radically alter your lifestyle. One that doesn’t ask you to learn drastically new skills but rather uses the ones you already have. One that doesn’t require new modes of behavior, just expands on what you’re comfortable doing right now.

And the answer is Network Marketing, aka the Recommending Business.

You see, when you like a new restaurant or movie or healthcare product, don’t you unhesitatingly and enthusiastically want to tell those you know about them? Well, that’s what Network Marketing is – A recommending business. Only when you’re doing it with a business relationship YOU’RE GETTING A EXTRA PAYCHECK!

If the idea tickles you even the slightest bit, you may want to take a look at this 7-minute video that explains the power of this model.

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.

FEAR of Passion

I speak to many people about their ambitions and dreams and in order to sort out the window shoppers from the serious volunteers, only one question has to pass their lips for me to know who will never make it.

Want to know what that question is?

“How much work will this take?”

Translation: “I am afraid of the thing I want. I am afraid of what I say I am passionate about.” 

“How much work?” = Fear of Passion

Inner Heart, Outer Mind

A “set definite objective” must be established if you are to accomplish anything in a big way. So says the classic of self-development, THE MESSAGE OF A MASTER. In my last post I wrote about Ilgar’s insights* regarding this: the role and workings of the human heart and the fickle nature of the human mind.

Why a “set definite objective”? According to THE MESSAGE there are reasons.

The First: The Inner Mind is the “positive pole” of a human being; the Outer Mind is the “negative”. A (+) and a (-) are needed to complete a circuit or a circle anywhere in nature or there would be NO motion, NO activity, thus NO experience. Welcome to this side of the speed of light and the Universe of Duality!

In everything that is obedient to the Law, the “Positive dominates & governs and the Negative serves. But humanity reverses this. It permits The Outer Mind to direct and govern without instruction” and so reports ‘bad news’: strife, war, obstacles, competition, “impossibilities”.

Why does it do so? Because of the absence of direction. The Outer Mind is left to wander aimlessly without PURPOSE, accepting everything and without the ability to differentiate.

The Second: “People who have no “set definite objective” are tuning in to everything and getting nothing. They are at the mercy of millions of conflicting thoughts and their lives are full of distress.” On the other hand, “People who have a “set definite objective” deliberately tune in to ONE THING. If it is money, they get it. A position, they get it. Nothing that such people tune in to can be withheld.”

The Third: “When you set your Inner Mind on anything, you transfer a portion of your Life Force to that thing or it could never be drawn to you.” The intensity of your desire/INTENTION governs the power with which the force is directed. This is part of the so-called price that must be paid.

(This is the INTENTION part of my equation INTENTION + ATTENTION = ATTRACTION.)

Continue to nourish the one Thing by holding it in your Inner Mind -> PAY INTENTION – and by taking focused, directed Action -> PAY ATTENTION your desire will manifest.

So if you are desiring or PAYING INTENTION to several objectives, entertaining more than one dream at a time, setting more than one goal, having more than one “set definite objective”, your force becomes divided and each of the several desires/dreams/goals/intentions receives an insufficient, weak stimulus. Not enough to ATTRACT any of them. Manifestation will be delayed if not altogether thwarted.

But all this can be reversed.

*Before we address that, please note that what THE MESSAGE calls the Inner Mind, Ilgar called the Heart, and the Outer Mind he simply called the Mind or Brain. You might want to read these posts again to help make this clearer: Set Your Heart & Your Mind Will Follow and Attraction = Intention + Attention.

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.

What’s Your Dream?

Why is a dream so important?

Here’s why: Your dream is your homing device, your beacon. It is the lighthouse that you are traveling toward.

So, what’s your dream? What’s your ‘Why’?

Why, why, why do you desire to be in the extremely rewarding but the not-easy-to-do networking industry? Your ‘Why’ had better be selfish or it’s useless to you. Totally useless.

What’s your dream, your intention and your ‘Why’? What’s going to keep you going through those lonely moments when you feel the big chill of rejection? Again and again.

What’s your dream? What’s your personal development program like?

If you can’t see how this is connected to networking, well, I was in exactly the same boat until my mentors started holding my beacon in front of me, for me to travel toward – and it turned out to be ME.

I was the goal. A fuller, more complete, more confident, more generous and more loving ME.

You must love yourself as you love your neighbor to have any success in networking.

To achieve the abundance and prosperity that is rightfully yours, you must understand and live the correct virtue of selfishness and personal growth. Because no matter how generous you may want to be in the future with your hard-won free time and money, your intention for being in this game has got to be about YOU first. Just like that video you watch before the plane takes off – put on YOUR oxygen mask FIRST before tending to OTHERS.

Cultivate who you are, because “who you are” is what you will project. There is no hiding this. And “who you are” is what will motivate people to go into business with you. People will join YOU not the company.

Cultivate “who you are”. THAT is what owning your life is all about.

My first lesson in discovering my ‘Why’ was found in Success in 10 Steps.

Help yourself to it. It’ll cost you nothing – you could end up owning your life.
