Motivational Seminars And You

Seminars are life changing event for the people who go with no expectations. Keeping an open mind is the key to unlocking the mysteries that keep you from moving forward. They help you unravel the patterns and break down walls you have put in place to avoid dealing with change.

These seminars designed to motivate you to think differently. They help you pin point how you fit in to your life story and show you that you have accountability for the choice and actions you take. Looking in from the outside they see that your circumstance. They show you that it is your perception of the role you play. They show you how to see things differently. What if the way you think has to do with the way you seen your situation and just by changing your thoughts you can see a different outcome? We carry baggage that we would like to forget and we tell ourselves that we have moved on but have we? They give you the tools to change your thinking, give up the baggage and rewrite the future.

If you talk to people who have been to these seminars that will tell you that it was great, life changing and they wish they would have gone sooner. They say the speaker seemed to talk directly to them, that’s because we are the same deep down. We have the same insecurities and we all have felt like a victim at one time in our lives. We walk around with defensive attitude to cover our vulnerability.

They help us to free ourselves from the pressure we put on ourselves by showing us who we really.They do this by bring out how truly capable we are and give us the confidence to make choices without fear or regret.They take the focus off how we feel and what we have to do to change it.

Why these seminars are not part of our childhood education is beyond me. If great motivators like Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy were to bring their talents to the class room we might see grow ups needing less therapy. There are seminars near you they may not have Tony Robbins or Brain Tracy, but they are helpful and designed with the same concepts and teachings that the masters use.

As you think about whether a motivational seminar is right for you, ask yourself this: Am I stuck in a rut unable to see the way out? Do I get tired of hearing my story played over and over in my head like a bad movie? Are my friends tired of hearing my whining? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may consider going to one of these seminars. It may just change who you think you are and open options that you did not know were possible.Think about how your business will benefit after you look and think with accountability in your role as a business owner.

Leadership Starts With You

Leaderships start with knowing wanting something is not the same as needing it as. Needs are food water and shelter. Wanting is an emotional reaction to pleasure. So what does this have to do with our identity?

Every person has needs and wants. Parents step into the roll of leadership they give their children what they need and what they want to support them. We are exposed early to outside influences that affect the way we think. It is the media and judgment from our peers that cause us pain or pleasure. This may trigger confusion on the difference between what our needs and wants really are.

Seeing, hearing, smelling and touching are the tool we inherited to survive. Listening with your senses started at birth, how we react to what we need as babies is natural. As we grow and understand how to get what we want, our parents place boundaries on us and introduced us to discipline. A child learns early that they are at the mercy of their family and will learn how to respond to get what they need. If you’re told repeatedly that you need and deserve something even when you don’t, you won’t understand the difference between a need and a want. Disciplined is setting the boundaries.

Discipline is training a state of improved behavior, improvement of physical power and self-control. Our brain is the key to getting what we need and want. If you are a victim to your emotions then you need to discipline your brain to act instead of reacting to the emotional triggers around you. You have to practice everything so that your brain knows what it has to do on its own. Just knowing you have to do something, is not enough.

Example: I am over weight because I have bad eating habits, there for I have to practice good eating habits to change the bad habits. I have a bad temper. No you have a bad habit triggered from an emotional behavior. You will only have self-control when you practice it. He is the best player on the team because he practiced until he could act with complete control over the game he plays.

Your brain will tell your body what to do when you practice it. If you don’t replace bad habits with good habits they will control your life. A computer is like a brain, unfortunately our brain doesn’t have the software to improve its performance. You are not what anyone tells you, you are what you tell yourself. All you have to do is listen to what you are telling your brain to do. If you tell yourself you don’t know how to something, you won’t. Your brain will not know what to do until you educate it to do so. Discipline yourself by practicing what you have to do and then act on your training.

Just because you put the uniform on doesn’t mean that your brain will tell your body how to play the game. You have to do your home work! You have to practice, know the game inside and out, then and only then you are ready to play in the game.

People fall victim to the world around them. You want to stand out in the crowd you have to practice discipline. In order to practice you need to find the training. You are not a player until you get in the game.

It is your life and your choices that define who you are, be accountable to yourself. Practice it, so you can stand out as a person of excellence. If you want what I have and are not willing to work for it, you can’t have it. Don’t throw a fit to get where you want to be. I had to change the way what I was doing to get what I need to live the way I want. I study it and practice it until I gained the skills to act without emotion when making decisions. , standout and be the example. People will follow your lead.

Who Are You Selling?

You have partnered with a company that is selling products and you are ready to move forward. The doubts set in and you ask yourself is this the products and is this the company that going to change my life? If you think it is just about these things you may not see what you have in front of you.

The opportunity is more than an opportunity to start business it is a way to welcome change into your life. This is your business and yes the product is important, but you are what matters. Be clear that in a marketing business you have to invest money to make money. This business model is no different, it works and it has proven it’s self over the years. You are just doing is on the inter-net. This like any business is not for those who want to get rich quick. It takes time, money and patience to build a business.

The income is defiantly there for the taking for the people willing to work for it. Business owners know the reason they started their business. Do you know your reason? Is it to support yourself, your family or to get extra money for college? These are great reasons for starting a business. Get in touch with why you want to do this in the first place? If you doubt why you are here, maybe you should get out. You must own your place in your business. You are there to take charge of your life and your finances.

Who are you selling? Get the right mind-set by getting involved. You made a choice to do this. Working at it building your business is not an option. We all have growing pains when we got started. Take part in the training, improve on the skills that you need to run your business. This is what you have to do. No one is going to hand you anything.

An entrepreneur is the person who believes in their business. They are building something greater than themselves. They have a clear vision of where they want to go and what it is going to take to get there. In the beginning it is you, your money, but mostly your time. As things progress you will recruit people to do what you don’t have time for or don’t want to do yourself. Every business adventure no matter how small is going to have challenges. Meet them head on. We all have fears it is those who move forward with fear who conquer it.

Most people have to see themselves in a role before they are willing to do it every day. This is your business and your responsibility to the choice you made when you partnered with the company. People are counting on you to do your part. Just because they presented you the opportunity, doesn’t mean they owe you. Marketing your business or some ones products is the business you are in and it is your responsibility to do just that. Find the training and dominate quickly. Now put it in action.

Starting a business is a choice. You are not selling anything. Take the time to build business relationships. Be kind to everyone and treat them with respect. In business we are all connected to someone who knows someone else. Running your business with integrity and it will show.

What Does Attraction Have to Do With It?

Entrepreneurs are open to and have an attraction to opportunities. They build businesses, relationships and teach others to do the same. Opening the door for others to do the same.

Most entrepreneurs are willing to take you under their wing and show you how they got where they are in their business. Self-confidence is earned by every entrepreneur and they wear it as a badge. Confidence is intoxicating to everyone around you and the attraction is undeniable. You are the authority on your business and what it took you to get there.

Self- confidence is a gift that you earn by small accomplishments that build ability. Responsibility is to take care of the opportunity that is in front of you. You are developing the mind-set of a confident person and you don’t have time for lazy behavior in your life. You have to have done the work, if you don’t do what you have to get done on your list, it becomes a blow to your self-esteem and your business.

Start your day with an affirmation, prayer or conversation with yourself. Get ready to carry out your list. As you go through the day, cross off each task as you do this your self-confidence has a small victory dance. At the end of each day you make a new list. There is power in writing it down, reading before you go to bed and crossing off each thing on your list as you finish it the next day. When you surrender to the process you will find it is not as hard as you think. I say surrender, because some people will fight with the Idea that this will work at all, no change comes over night. This is a journey.

Entrepreneurs do what it takes even when they may feel uncomfortable at first because they know that you can say that it works, but try it out for themselves, they are confident in the process. They to are on a path to improve their lives. They are not judgmental. Every positive action they take to develop as a person is putting a new tool in the tool box to success.

Every task you carry out will make the next one easier. The attraction for more skills is building because the skills are building the knowledge that you need as a business owner. With your self-confidence growing and your esteem level rising you will find that other do take notice around you. Small changes will all so bring changes in the way you inter-act with others.

Attraction is built on respect, without respect you will not have self-esteem and without self-esteem you are not attractive to yourself. You have to feel a sense of accomplishment to gain self-esteem. Attracting people to you because you go after what you want and are willing to put the work in that it takes to succeed at your business.

Confidence is the reward. Please do not mistake confidence with arrogance. Arrogance is not attractive even though it is very powerful. An arrogant person is attractive to more arrogant people. They have little time for anyone but themselves. Conceited people keep the focus on themselves leaving very little room for anyone else. What does attraction has to do with it? Everything, as an entrepreneur you will attract the people who are looking for the way to build their business. They find value in you as a person because you are doing what you say you are going to do.Now is the time to step in to the role as the teacher, not the student. Sharing our knowledge is natural when you have done your homework and are a living example for them to follow.

Now, arm yourself with the tools to mold yourself into the person that you admire. Walk the path celebrating the small victories and get ready for the great celebration at the end. We don’t sell ourselves short. We are entrepreneurs ready for the next step because we have confidence that we can and it shows is every part of our lives.

Taking Accountability Builds Self-Respect

The most important thing we can do is take accountability of what we do. At the end of the day is our character. When you practice self-respect and discipline it shows in everything you do. Do you know how to earn respect from others? Try confronting yourself honestly before you go any further.

How do you live your life? Can you look at what you do, when you do it and how you do it with pride? Is it all about you? Hopefully this article will help you think about what you do and how you do it. Do you get a positive outcome from others by the decisions that you make?

Taking accountable for your decisions keeps you on top of your life. You cannot live a life full of chaos, only doing the right thing every once and awhile. If you do don’t expecting to live a wonderful life. Everything that is good requires discipline and self-control. Doing the right thing is contagious and people will follow you when you have a positive and caring outlook on life. You do what you say that you are going to do, when you say you’re going to do it. It will be a part of who you are and others will notice.

Remember discipline is making some things subject to other things. Ask yourself this. If I do this is there a positive outcome for all? Don’t live your life waiting for someone else to hold you accountable. If you are not disciplined you will act first and think about it afterwards.

Everyday discipline affects your live in one way or another. Love yourself enough to take the higher road when it comes to making moral decisions. Remember we do what we do because it brings us joy while we are doing it. A person that practices the moral high ground will take responsibility for their actions and the words that come out of their mouth.

Are you a person that wants what others have, without doing the work? How do you think they got to where they are? Nothing is free everything has a cost. I don’t know anyone that has not paid with time and money to get where they are today. If you walk through your day jealous, if you complain about others and spread gossip around then you have no self-respect.

You will find out so much about yourself if you listen to the words that come out of your mouth. A person that takes the high road has a plan to deal with situations that come up. Deal with each decision by realizing the difference between a destructive out come and a positive outcome. They practice discipline by thinking about the decisions before they act. Taking the emotion out of your decision and going forward with confidence is hard work. It is even harder when you realize that it is not about you. It is about doing the right thing.

Admitting when you are wrong and accept the consequences for your decisions good or bad is part of a good character. A disciplined person goes through life knowing that if you want something you have to work for it. If you think hanging around with someone will get you want, you are wrong it doesn’t rub off on to you. Any success you have will not last and the only way to get what you want is to do the work. Take classes to develop skill you can use to work on your character and celebrate the steps along the way.

Treat people how you want them to treat you. Be mindful of everything you do. Helping others when it is right to do so.That doesn’t mean you do it for them. Making mistakes is humbling and serves a purpose in building character. We all stumble before we walk. Our past is not who we are at this time. When we strive to do better it shows in every part of our life and it is important for the relationships we have to grow. You want people to remember you for the good you do on purpose. Take the high road even though it may not have as many people on it as the low road it is more rewarding. The journey is not easy and there are bumps along the way. Anything worth getting is not easy or everyone would do it.

Do you go to sleep at night happy about the person you are? Do you feel that every decision you make today is getting you to the success you want? Are you honest with yourself or hiding behind a fear to act in good character. You don’t have to care what others think, because you live your life on the high road. The people there know you and have the same life style. As you carry out the skill it takes to live a disciplined life, you will earn respect from the person that matters the most, you. Others will see the respect you have for yourself, your life and your business and as you grow so will the respect you earn from others.

Who Is Taking the Responsibility?

Even when the days are long someone has to take responsibility for your business. Your days are long and you are really thinking about giving up. That’s right you are feeling over whelmed. Starting this internet business is more work than you thought it would be. What are you going to do? Go back to working for someone else is an option and so is moving forward with what you have started and dive in to it like your live depends on it.

Some people lack the discipline it takes to succeed at a business. They start a business because they think they can get rich over night. If you’re a lazy person you will not succeed at a business or anything else. Never under-estimate your own laziness and lack of responsibility. It’s not working the way you think it should, so there for it is someone else’s fault. They hold others accountable for their decisions and look for excuses to why things are not working.

You are not succeeding because you lack responsibility and accountability for your actions. I cannot help those who will not help themselves. This is your life and how do you live it? You can work for others and let your employer control your life. If you are waiting for something great to happen you are not making decisions to change what is not right in your life. Buy not making these decisions you are waiting for someone else to make the decisions for you. Procrastination is not a skill it is a lack of control. It shows others that they are not important, that you don’t care if things get done because you don’t want to do it or someone will come along and do it for you.

Your job as a business owner is to develop skill that you will need to become successful. When you put the responsibility on to someone else you hold them accountable. If you don’t want to do the work it takes, you are better off working for someone else. Let them schedule how much you are going to have off to spend with your family and friends. Go can’t just sit there and wait for things to change.

Does your job take care of you when you are sick or comfort you when you lose someone who you love? I’m not saying that you are lazy because you work for someone else. If that works for you that’s fine, so don’t complain that you don’t get enough money, credit or time because you have given that power to your employer. Take responsibility for your choices. You do what you do, because it makes you feel good when you are doing it. No one twisted your arm to start to start a business.

You may think you’re not in control because of your responsibilities to your family, yet you do nothing to change your situation. This is too hard, is an excuse that most people use. I tell you that you can do what you put your mind to. It is up to you to get the skills you need to enrich your life. It is amazing what you can do if you don’t give up. No one said it would be easy they only said they would show you they way. You have to do your part, you have to take responsibility.

Responsibility is taking part in the opportunity. You cannot have the spoils without the work. If you know what you have to do and you don’t do it you have no one to blame but yourself. In order to achieve the success you desire you have to attack it as your life depends on it. Get your hands on the training you need and then take action on it.

If you got in to business to get rich quick then you are not going to see the gifts that you get along the way. You will give up before your journey is started. The journey is there for you to experience growing as a person. Learning the skills to help others by showing them the opportunities and giving them the tools they need to succeed. You cannot do it for them you can only show them the path.

Develop Your Business Character

To develop a business character you look at yourself and see what parts of your personality you would like to change. If you are waiting for others to change you are in big trouble. The people in your life don’t want you to control them. Don’t dwell on them, the person that is reading this is the one that needs changes. As we work on ourselves other will changing around us or is it that they aren’t changing we are. Your perception is what is changing.

Investing in a relationship is emotional, you are constantly working on it and yourself. You will want to bring your best every time you are with them. That is why it is so important to build strong relationships with friends and family. You can bring your best to every person you meet and that doesn’t mean you have to emotionally invest in them.

As I work on my posture, the way I look at people is changing. People that are rude to me or don’t take time to listen to what I have to offer really doesn’t matter any more. I don’t emotionally invest in what they are going to say or do until I see what type of person they are. I can tell in just a few seconds if the person is positive or negative. I have decided that I am a positive person and want positive people around me. Does that mean they are going to what my offer? They probably won’t and that’s okay. This business model doesn’t hinge on whether they join me. I talk to so many people, that a single person will not make or break my business. There are millions of people who what to hear what I am offering and if it is an opportunity they can see themselves in.

Confident and disciplined are a few things that successful business people have. They let rejection roll of their back. The people you partner with are the people who have a vision of a positive outcome. It is your outlook that determines what you want out of the business relationship. I want to spend time with people who are willing to succeed.

Would you be willing to?

  • Treat others the way you would like to be treated
  • Do just about anything to get to their goal
  • Trust worthy
  • Treat other with respect
  • Willing to compromise
  • Listen to what others say
  • Learn from them
  • Teach them something they need to succeed as a business partner
  • Take action and make decisions without emotion
  • Live up to your Commitments

 

The reason I ask these questions is because these are the characteristics that I look for in every relationship I have. These are the some of the things I worked on to become a good partner. Don’t be self deceptive, If you by-pass yourself when you learn these things and go right to teaching them to others, you are not working on your character and it will show in everything you do. Be ready to follow and learn the characteristic of people you admire. Lead as a teacher in your action and your words.

We want to think that we jumped into this business with a clear idea about what we have to do. We are not willing to become the person that we want to work with. As I develop in this business I want to learn as much as I can so I can bring an open positive person to each relationship I have in business.

 

What is an Entrepreneur Made of?

There are many people who come to mind when we hear the word entrepreneur. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are examples of great entrepreneur because they changed their lives by helping other. Our lives will never go back to what they were before computers because of these men and the choices they made.

Before the McDonald’s came along we ate at home or at a local restaurant that were own and operated buy a person or a family. The McDonald brothers who owned restaurants that severed the same quality product, a simple and effective operation. They ran their restaurant business on a few items concentrating on cleanliness, quality and uniformity.They did everything the same at more than one location. Ray Kroc seen this business model as a product. He knew that he could take this restaurant and copy it and open restaurants like this all over the world. His vision was to create his business by giving other entrepreneurs the opportunity to own a profitable business. You would be in business for yourself but not by yourself. Investing your money in a proven business model through duplication everyone benefits. Ray Kroc caused a disruption in the restaurant industry and changed may lives by supplying what people needed to make a dream of owning a business a reality. Each location any where in the world would have a business owner spending their own money invested in the success of the business and the brand McDonalds.

This is an example that shows us how an entrepreneur thinks. These brothers knew if they wanted to succeed they had to come up with a simple model that could be copied with same quality of the product and Ray Kroc could see these restaurants were the product that he could see all over the world. He knew that he could not do it alone so he helped others with a dream to own their own business. Helped them get started and he supplied an opportunity based on a proven product and those who took advantage of the opportunity are McDonalds’ owners. Franchising the business he made it possible for everyone to profit. He took ordinary people and gave them the opportunity to own a successful business.

Qualities of an Entrepreneur

  • A person who starts and supports a business of their own.
  • Uses their business to help others.
  • A visionary with a clear and precise goal.
  • Take advantage of opportunity.
  • Know that communication as a priceless tool.
  • Take emotion out of the decision process. Willing to make decisions and keep their focus on the goal.
  • Trust worthy, a team player and is supportive of the people around them.Uses direct contact and can follow as well as lead.
  • Leads through chaos knowing the risk.A negotiator who is willing to use personality skills to get others to agree.
  • Telescoping in and out, ready to make changes that will affect the business.
  • Use their business by helping others as they help themselves.

People who own their own business and control every minute of their lives are entrepreneurs. The way they live is important and working for others is giving up power over their life. They are willing to change to do what it takes to get what they want. It is part of the way they live is part of their identity. Entrepreneurs are people with a vision who start and support a business. They see an opportunity and act on it. They don’t live their lives waiting for a pay check they go out and create their wealth. Thinking outside of the box and listening to their gut is as important as breathing for an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs welcoming change around every corner, they have been known to shake things up just to keep it interesting. Disruption is a great tool when used at the right time. Entrepreneurs use change it to their advantage. Successful people are open to change because it brings opportunity. They stand out as leaders and are rewarded with success. An entrepreneur starts a business alone and realizes that he may own the business, but can do nothing without the people around them. They live a life of training and negotiating. They are willing to share their knowledge and opportunity with everyone they meet.

Life is our challenge that has no limits. Going forward is part of growing up, yet some of us rise above the standard for a happy life. We want control over how we live and the time we have while we are alive. The people who don’t settle, are willing to change and will do what it takes to get what they want. This is what entrepreneur are made of.

Why Are You Working for Others?

Working for someone who has control over your life is letting them set your schedule. They decide how much time you spend with your family, when you can take your vacation, and for how long you can go. The wage you make will decide how much you can afford to spend and your retirement is based on the money you are trying to save. How are you going to send your kids to college? These are just some of the problems that we have when we are at the mercy of others.

Today so many of us live in fear, there is no job security and the unemployment lines are getting longer. These problems are because some else is in control. This is the time you take control of your time and how you make your income. Right now is a great time to check what direction you want your life to take. It is the time you take control of your time and how you make your income. You can make a choice to stay where you are and do nothing or make a change to increase your earnings. Take a part-time job to make an extra income, which will take more of your time away from what you want to do.

So what can you do with a little bit of money, time and effort? You can change your world. Truth is that you are the only one that can change your circumstance. When you have had enough of people controlling how you live, you will start looking for ways to improve your situation. I hear people say if I only had more time. Time is not the problem it is the one thing that you can count on. It will run out and you can’t replace it. So how do plan on spending your time? Do you keep doing what you’re doing and pray that things change for the better. Why not take control today and see what’s out there.

Starting your own business may just be what you are looking for, you can take your time and work towards replacing that job your that is stealing your time. Inter-net businesses you can start for a small amount thanks to technology. An inter-net business does not have the overhead cost of a traditional business so it is very affordable. You don’t have to leave your current job to get started. If you are not working you can use the time to become successful sooner. You can build your online business part-time or full-time, you’re in control.

Successful online companies that have a wealth opportunity are out there looking for people to partner with. They will train you to do your business on and off-line. They supply you with their branded marketing materials and a web site. Whether you start part-time or jump into full-time right away, you still have to work at it, just like any other business you get out of it what you put into it. Time is your biggest asset and it is best spent with established companies that have proven products and services. These companies are partnering with distributor that will help them build an online present’s and as they grow momentum, so will your income. They invest in you by supplying everything you need to succeed. When you believe in the business you are building, you invest more of yourself into it. A working business is going to transform your life will be easier to learn and promote.

Identifying the problems that others have, supplying them with answers and products to solve their problems. That is the first rule of business. The best way to find these companies is do research in the niche you chose to associate your business with. Health products, electronics and services are just a few. You partner with them building your business and theirs.

The products your partner company distributes are just part of the equation. You teach others how you started working with a company and show them how to keep up your online business. Now that technology is getting better your business seems to run on co-pilot. You get to spend time with people you like and trusts developing a relationship with people who have a desire to change their life and are currently working and doing just that.

The more people you meet the more you will want to share how starting your business has changed your life. Inviting them to partner with you will be easy because you know how it works, show them your business model and how it works. You can’t worry if they don’t jump at the offer, because you are doing what you want. What you do is not for everyone. Keep the friendship and offer the partnership to someone else. You can’t waste your time for anyone, move on. Whether they take this offer is up to them.

The time you spend working with others through your business will be noticed. Having more time and control of your life is what has driven you to this point, use that drive to leverage your business. Show others how to do the same and you will succeed in creating more than a business. You will open your life to a wealth of opportunity and relationship with people who take control of how they live their lives.
