Personal Development: WHY?

From The Secret Daily Teachings

No person or power in the outside world can compare to the power you have within you. Seek the power within, as it knows the perfect way for you. May the joy be with you. Rhonda Byrne

Personal development is sometimes referred to as self-development or personal growth, and it traditionally covers a broad set of areas to improve. It is not however something that you gain from formal education, though the process of gathering knowledge is fundamental to growth. Personal development is a path that you take to better your family situation, career, spirituality, emotional health, and every other aspect of your life. It is the investment into improving yourself. Essentially, It is about making conscious decisions about everything that you do, the way that you think, and the way that you react to situations. For some, It is also a matter of moving beyond past failures and misfortune to see what is possible in the future.

Development process

Personal development can help you obtain everything that you always dreamed of, and more, with the simple application of a few simple mind-sets and tools. Our awareness is a direct result from our development. And personally, the need for further growth and development is paramount for your health physically, mentally and emotionally through to all your relationships. For those who need additional help moving past obstacles and making those changes, a counsellor or personal development coach can also be of great worth. One of the most important steps toward development is to set obtainable goals.

Setting Goals

Finding resources to make changes move past obstacles, set goals, and find happiness is not always easy. Search for quotes stories, tips and ideas to fuel your goals. The key is to consciously act toward goals that will cause you to grow. You must then determine which values, goals and principles you will set up to guide your actions. For me I choose to remove all the bad programming that has been installed on my "hard drive" (if you will) and install more productive and positive programming to help me move closer to my goals in life. You can also learn how to set and implement realistic goals, develop an increased level of self-esteem and self-confidence.

Keys to Growth

I’ve found out more about myself by committing myself to personal growth, rather than trying to find myself first and then start developing. I also found that my personal growth plan is a useful tool that keeps me focused. Develop your personal growth plan, make it a visual poster and hang it up where you can see it daily. Success in an undertaking leads one to gaining more pursuit and a much greater yearning to learn, resulting in growth of motivation directing towards the goal that you have set.

Self Development is a journey not a destination.

"I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness". Personal development is not about reaching a state of perfection; it’s about enjoying the process. It is about living your life while making conscious decisions on a daily basis about everything you do. Make no mistake about it; personal development is a lifelong pursuit. Remember that it is your key to success and you must make a commitment to practice it daily to see results.

The key in making those right choices. Each choice you make is like a length of steel wire. By itself, it’s not that big a deal, but when braded together, when compounded with all the other choices you make, these lengths of wire form a thick cable of awesome strength and power. Nothing is stronger than habit – Ovid

7 Leadership Secrets

PMA Added Gray Lawrence

"When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money… but that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact–and that is everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you." -Steve Jobs

7 Secrets I Learnt From The Leadership Pill by Ken Blanchard

1. Leadership is not just what happens when you are there. It’s what happens when you are not there.

This is a very useful distinction and should become an outcome for anyone who wants to lead. Team that functions even if the leader is not around is something unique and requires a different level of skills. The next points will give couple of ideas how to get there. A great leader builds their people. The better your people, the more free time you have.

2. Profit is the applause you get for taking care of your customers and creating a motivating environment for people.

Isn’t it an interesting twist in perception and sequence? There are so many organisations that do exactly opposite. This model helps to remove from constantly focusing on just getting a quick financial gain that looks good in a short term, but on the other hand it can strongly damage the two most important parts of your organisations: your customers and your team.

3. Leadership is not something you do to people, it is something you do with them.

Simple but powerful truth. If you are setting off for a team leading journey, remember to take your team with you. Communicate and involve. Simple but also so often forgotten.

4. The key to effective leadership is the relationship you build with your team.

An extension from the previous points. The relationship you build with your team should be the way how you judge your success as a leader.

5. Sharing the big picture puts everyone on the same page.

Effective communication will always be the key leadership skill while building a team. A clear vision gives the strong sense of direction, or even a sense of excitement and a powerful drive, if properly communicated.

6. You will go a lot further if you stop to refuel.

That is something I must admit I have been guilty of. It is so crucially important to pause, relax and change your perception with different activities, different people. So take time for sport, short trips, dancing, reading watching movies, hiking etc. If you are scoring and winning take time to celebrate, if you are missing your target and not really getting what you want, find time to reflect and get some distance to gain new perspective. Albert Einstein put it nicely: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”

7. The highest achievement of a leader is winning respect and trust of your team.

Again, I love what Ken Blanchard is doing here. Measure your success of leadership not by financial numbers but trust and respect. These two ingredients will lay a solid foundation that will be a springboard for long lasting financial results.

Hope these 7 nuggets from Ken Blanchard take your leadership skills to the max!

Here’s To Your Success

Money is kind of a base subject. Like water, food, air and housing, it affects everything yet for some reason the world of academics thinks it’s a subject below their social standing. Robert Kiyosaki

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way. Robert Kiyosaki

Motivation Recharge

"Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, your not setting big enough goals." Bob Proctor

How to Recharge Your Motivation

Sometimes, when you have so many items on your to-do list, getting anything important accomplished becomes daunting. All the menial tasks start to take up the majority of your time and, before you know it, the important things fall by the wayside. Finding the motivation to continue pursuing the things that really matter to you is not something you can just do once. Staying motivated requires taking the time to occasionally re-focus your thoughts and priorities, outline your goals, and do things that help you feel inspired and creative! The practice of recharging your motivation will help you follow through on your goals and make real progress in your life.

Re-examine your focus

Take a minute to reflect on how you currently spend your time. Sometimes, without realizing it, we can get stuck spending too much time on things that aren’t the most important to us. What are your main priorities and goals in life? I have four main commitments in my life that stem from different categories. Each day I try to spend time with my family, working, exercising, and being spiritual. Too frequently, I notice that one area has started to slip and I again need to revisit how I spend my time and allocate more or less time to certain areas.

Get inspired

When you have a big goal that might take some time to accomplish, it’s important to continue to inspire yourself. Spend time in environments that help you feel creative and motivated! Whether you feel inspired walking around the city, getting lost in the library, spending a day at the beach or in the mountains, or even just

talking with people who have accomplished what you’re striving for, make sure you spend time inspiring and motivating yourself to continue pursuing your goals.

Create an end goal

If you’ve noticed that you’ve been less motivated to achieve one of your goals or stick to a priority in your life, figure out what motivates you in that area. For some people, they need to have an “end” in their mind, something to work towards. For example, if you’re a runner, but you can’t find the motivation to hit the trail, you might consider signing up for a race in 3-6 months. With the end goal of the race, you’ll be more motivated to get up and run each day. Whatever your goal is, find something that motivates you to continue working toward it.

Examine your progress

When you’re working toward a goal, a great motivator can be to examine how far you’ve already come. If your goal is to be fluent in Spanish, reflect on how much you’ve learned so far. Maybe now you can have a small conversation in Spanish and understand even more. Take notes of your progress and track how much you’ve improved. The ability to track your progress will help you see that all your hard work is paying off and inspire you to continue.

“Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.” – Zig Ziglar

"You do not always have to know when you are going to get to your goal, or how you are going to get to your goal, but you do need to take the next step." Peggy McColl

When weeds come up in your garden, it does no good to say, ‘There are no weeds, there are no weeds, there are no weeds…’ It doesn’t help to pretend they’re not there. It doesn’t matter how much you focus on the beautiful plants that are growing. The weeds aren’t going to disappear until you get on your hands and knees and pull them out. – In your own life, you can’t just ‘focus on the positive, focus on the positive, focus on the positive’, and expect your problems to go away. If there are some weeds, you have to deal with them.”    Bob Proctor

Are You Selling The WRONG Opportunity.

If you want to attract a better job or anything better than what you currently have, it is important to understand how the law of attraction works.  You know that to bring in something better you must imagine what that better thing looks like in your mind, and then live in that picture as though it is here now. But you should also know that if you complain about your current job, for example, and continue to focus on all the negative things, you will never bring the better job to you. You must look for the things to be grateful for in your current job. Each thing you find to be grateful for is helping to bring that better job to you. That is really working the law!                    May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne The Secret… bringing joy to billions

Here’s a little question to think about.

Are you selling the WRONG business opportunity?

“Due diligence” on any company is the key, search and seek help advice or more information on Network marketing Opportunities, thus ensuring you have the right information on what you are looking for then seek a person in that business.

What’s the first thought that just popped into your mind?

For most people I bet it’s either the company or their products, or services.

And how “GOOD” they are. How they help people do what is required to succeed.

Of course how incredible their “system” is… the override structure, the “unique” builder bonuses and back up. Right?

After all isn’t that why you decided to join the business you’re in, or looking at  because of how unique this company is and how different this particular opportunity is?  That is what most people sell and to be honest the majority do succeed…

The reason why Most people struggle to Sponsor a Large Number Of People is  not because of the product (which is an on-going type of business expecting people to keep buying) or service based businesses but because of the attitude and willingness to help and provide those looking for something better than the “JOB”  Offering a life one can only dream about, until now!

what is it that get people really excited.? I can GUARANTEE that people  join your business for a much different reasons, There Own!  And why Not!

Oh sure it’s important to feel good about what you do in your business and I’m certain you believe 100% in the opportunity… But those are the supporting reasons behind your decision.

The REAL reason behind why you do what you do… and it’s the same reason why others will join you… which is actually the “same reason EVERYONE buys anything… “

… it’s to make themselves feel BETTER about themselves and why not!

Every buying decision (and recruiting someone is a sales process… they need to BUY INTO what you do)… is an emotional one. If you are not concerned about what others desire want or need, you are not doing your job to be the best at “Network Marketing.”

We can come up with dozens of reasons WHY people buy… but if we boil it all down to one thing, it’s to… … FEEL BETTER ABOUT OURSELVES. Why not!

The house we live in, the car we drive, the clothes we wear, the TV in your house, the furniture, the colour of paint you chose for your walls… EVERYTHING has an emotional reason attached to it.

So knowing this let’s back up and think when talking to someone about your business… is it the “life changing” product or a “unique” compensation plan or the vision of a founder is what REALLY going to get someone to move? Not necessarily but how good the company is and the: training and back up provided does offer a guarantee of support which should be on going.

What will get people to move are their own personal desires and reasons.

Here are 7 motivators we ALL have, in no particular order:

1. Money
2. Security
3. Recognition
4. Achievement
5. Love of Family
6. Acceptance of Others
7. Self-Acceptance

They are running automatically in the background and WHEN we make buying decisions it’s for one or more of these reasons.

Now they all can be tied back to making us feel good about ourselves.

When you’re loved by your family… accepted by others… have money… recognized or appreciated…. all of it makes us feel good, right?

So when others are considering joining your business and you speak to them about things which do not satisfy these… things that are IMPORTANT TO THEM… you have NO CHANCE of getting them to join. That is the reason why you should be providing all information on the company and services so they can see what you have to offer, But only if you seek what it is that they desire from your business by asking them.. It is that simple.  

If all you talk to them about is money… you may temporarily appeal to their GREED, but it won’t last unless you can grab them emotionally with their REAL reason(s).  When they can see themselves getting what THEY want as a result of associating with you… that’s when you got them.

Which is why it’s important to ask questions, and pay close attention to what they tell you.  People will usually tell you what they need for you to recruit them.

A good question to ask people, and it’s a general one, but it does wonders in terms of digging DEEP to discover their REAL MOTIVATOR, and it’s….

Not What is Important To You but to the person or people that you are offering the business too. 

When they indicate they want to make more money, pretty much everyone says that… you have to find out WHY it is important to them to make more money, if you wish them to succeed as well as you have.

Think about it, if they really wanted to make more money, if that was their only motivator… then why have they not got the money desire yet?

I think often people don’t really know what they want… so they say they want bigger house, car, more money… but it’s really what all these things will do for them… how they will make them feel.

I can tell you a lot of the leaders in Network Marketing are driven by praise and recognition, for the company and those in the business thus helping them move on to better things, the money does help no matter who you are. 

People will do incredible things to get recognized and feel appreciated, I do not know of any person whom does not desire these things . something we all crave for in life, from family to the job, it is a human desire and we area all worthy of these desires.

We all like being special people, with our children, family and friend’s, someone  that they all would be proud of… providing lots of security… these things drive us and when you can appeal to them in your recruiting… it will dwarf anything else and will become the dominant reason people will flock to YOU and join YOU.

So if you find you are not sponsoring as many people as you’d like, yet you feel like you are doing everything else right… it just might be that you are selling the WRONG thing.

And a little change in your approach to focus on THEM… THEIR GOALS, DREAMS and MOTIVATIONS…

… just might do the trick.

Act on your own initiative, but be prepared to assume full responsibility for your acts.
One of the primary differences between those who achieve greatness in their lives and those who manage only to “get by” is that successful people learned early in life that they were responsible for their own actions. No other person can make you successful or keep you from achieving your goals. Taking the initiative means assuming a leadership role, a position that singles you out for praise — and for criticism. The good leader is the one who shares the credit for success with others and assumes full responsibility for failures or temporary setbacks. When you accept responsibility for your actions, you gain the respect of others and are well on the way to creating your own future. – Napoleon Hill
