When you demand a blessing, what you’re demanding is of you.
You’re demanding yourself to change your attitude. You’re demanding yourself to see it differently. You’re demanding yourself to open up to the truth of who you are, and then naturally the results will become different.
Matter must obey the intent of consciousness, and is obeying the intent of consciousness.
Your body, your affairs, your relationships, your money — all of it is obeying the intent of your consciousness, right now.
What we demand is that we expand our awareness. Here’s To The Expansion,

 

How You Can Choose Wealth Over Riches

Mahisha DellingerIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

 

I’m proud of my financial position in life, but contrary to what a lot of people may think, I never aspired to be rich. I wanted to be wealthy. It wasn’t always that way, though. I think there was a lot of fear driving me. Fear of being poor again and fear of going back to that impoverished life from my childhood.

Being rich and being wealthy seem to be synonymous with success. However, there’s a big difference between the two. The main difference between being rich and being wealthy is knowledge. Wealthy people know how to make money, while rich people only have money. Rich people are motivated by money, but wealthy people are motivated by their dreams, purpose and passion. Most rich people make a lot of money with their paychecks but the moment they stop working, they also stop making money. Wealth, true wealth, is often generational money and money that works for you.

Most people do want to be rich. We want to enjoy the fruits of their labor and live a life that is more fortunate and ultimately extravagant than the average man. We dream of having the nice things. These are things that everyone wants, but very few actually achieve. Essentially, it comes down to the person and their mindset. It also comes down to their purpose, motivation and will power. It’s never the ones that are just motivated by money, it’s the ones who are motivated to change the world and build a legacy because that is what wealth really is.

Your ability to cultivate desire and take persistent action is what will make you successful, not your natural talents. It’s all about consistent daily action. Wealthy and rich people both may experience downfalls and failures in their ventures. However, wealthy people are knowledgeable when it comes to money matters and can start all over again and build wealth over time.

The key to acquiring wealth is to regularly monitor and increase your passive and portfolio income by increasing your means to earn and decreasing your expenses. The moment you decide to make passive and portfolio income a part of your financial habit and discipline yourself in building it, you are on your way to financial freedom.

This is the path in maintaining a strong wealth foundation. Never forget that what you do on a daily basis determines your habits, and your habits determine who you are, what you accomplish, and the legacy you leave. People will measure you by what you do and what you have managed to accomplish in your lifetime, which then of course leads to your legacy.

If you have inspired people and they can share and tell your story for generations to come, then you have created wealth in your life. You have left a legacy. You have done something different – you didn’t settle for simply being rich.

I don’t work for my money. It works for me. That’s the key to separating the wealthy from the rich. While I am still working diligently on my plan to independent wealth, I am confident I am on the right path. Which path will you choose?

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

“Success lies just one inch beyond your perceived limits. Every day you have a choice whether or not to take that inch and transform success from uncertainty to inevitability.” – Akshay Nanavati

 

Selling to people who haven’t bought yet

The portion of the population that haven’t bought from you or your competition yet is not waiting for a better mousetrap.

They’re not busy considering a, b and c and then waiting for d.

No, they’re not in the market. They don’t believe that they have a problem that’s worth the time and money they think it’s going to take to solve it.

As a result, smart marketers don’t market to this audience by saying, "hey, ours is better than theirs!"

If this group thought that they had a solvable problem, the would have solved it already.

No, they won’t respond to a better-than-them pitch. Instead, they’re much more likely to respond to a new statement of their problem and a new statement of the solution. Don’t ask them to announce that they were wrong when they decided that they didn’t need a tablet, a survival kit or an anti-impotence drug. Instead, make it easy for them to make a new decision based on new information.

 

The easiest and the best

The easiest customers to get are almost never the best ones.

If you’re considering word of mouth, stability and lifetime value, it’s almost always true that the easier it is to get someone’s attention, the less it’s worth.

 

If you think that’s what we want, why don’t you give it to us?

The sign in front of the breakfast bar at the hotel says, "from garden to table."

Really? Virtually every item I see has been processed four times, steamed, stored and steamed again.

Marketing pitches are finely tuned to resonate with the audience in mind. Too often, though, the marketer is only in charge of the pitch, and someone else in the organization has to make the thing.

So the marketer brags about how tasty the food on the airplane is, or how reliable the cell phone service is or how magically transporting the aromatherapy of the soap is–and then someone else, someone under different pressures and constraints–has to deliver. And they rarely do.

They rarely do because the paying customer isn’t their customer. Their customer is the quality control department, the accounting department and the "don’t-rock-the-boat" department.

Marketers need to spend less time making promises and more time keeping them.

 

The future of our economy lies with the impatient. The linchpins and the artists and the scientists who will refuse to wait to be hired and will take things into their own hands, building their own value, producing outputs others will gladly pay for. Seth Godin

Your life is a learning process – you can only become wiser from learning. Sometimes you might have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important, but after the mistake you have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought with money – it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes: strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace.

If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

Make the most out of every day; you are not going to get a do-over. When you look in the mirror, there is the CEO of your life. It’s not your boss, spouse, friends, and parents–it’s you. So ultimately we have no one to blame for our mistakes, failures, and shortcomings other than ourselves.

At some point, we all experience hardships and personal catastrophes. You can keep moving forward if you decide to do so.

Pick a career that centers on work you enjoy. Then it becomes play instead of work. On average you are going to work for 60 or 70 years, so do things that really excite you. You will then naturally use your innate talents to the fullest. Every endeavor and career has hard times and challenges. Learn to hang in there, persist, and be determined.

It’s useful to have goals that you write down, measure and revise over time. Segment your life into easily definable components like: family; career; education; professional development; religious activity; social; community service; financial; and physical activity. Make sure that you invest sufficient time and effort in each to make yourself a rounded person. The Greeks had it right: balance is the key to a good life.

Family is naturally the most important human relationship. Find a life partner who you connect with on multiple levels. I’ve been lucky to have such a relationship for three decades. Your spouse and a healthy relationship are the most important factors in raising children who become fully functioning adults. The goal there is to get them to adulthood as confident, competent, and independent adults who have roots and wings.

Sir Isaac Newton said, "I stand on the shoulders of giants." Certainly I feel the same. My parents, siblings, friends, teachers, and business colleagues all have combined to encourage me to use may talents to the fullest. Early on, I decided that studying successful role models and trying to copy them for myself was vastly superior to going at it alone or studying failure. Ask yourself: Whose shoulders do I stand on? And, who stands on yours?

For me, the most positive, uplifting and realistic philosophy and approach to life is Christianity. Have you ever been to a funeral, looked at the grave, and felt the hopelessness and powerlessness of our human condition? I say make Blaise Pascal’s wager. It posits that there’s more to be gained from wagering on the existence of God than from choosing atheism, and that a rational person should live as though God exists, even though the truth of the matter cannot actually be known until you die.

In conclusion, your life can be an awesome experience, but bear in mind it’s a do-it-yourself project.

 

I never see failure as failure, but as the path I will not take in the further journey towards my greatness.

Your job is you and only you. When you are working in harmony with the law, no-one can come between you and the Universe. However if you think another person can get in the way of what you want, then you have done a flip to the negative. Focus on creating what you want.   You are the centre of divine operation in your life, and your partner is the Universe. No one can get in the way of your creation.   May the joy be with you,

"As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might." arian Anderson 1902-1993,

Be somebody who makes everyone feel like a somebodyHere are the things: you get what you reward. You attract the customers that respond to the way you act. You end up with what you tolerate. You build what your audience demands.

You might not get the customers you deserve, but you will probably end up with the customers you attract.

Sure, you can swoop in and make the numbers by attracting a certain kind of customer. Is it worth it?            “ Choose.” 

Start your first business this way: Begin with the smallest possible project in which someone will pay you money to solve a problem they know they have. Charge less than it’s worth and more than it costs you, training is the way forward.

Successful Networker To Change Think Bigger

 

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. Aristotle

The problem with thinking too big…

 

If a dream is not worth waking up tow minutes earlier for then it is probably not hte right dream"Dream big. Reach for the stars. The only limit is in your mind." How often do you hear these words? We’re filled with the power of positive mantras in motivational texts, books, and seminars. The problem with expansive thinking, however, is that too big can be just as much of a problem.

The problem of thinking too big, however,

is that you’ll forget to get started.

Or you’ll become afraid of getting started.

The more you dream, the bigger it becomes, the harder it can be to begin. And sometimes, dreaming can get in the way of taking action. Over time, the practice of not starting becomes the best habit you have—another day to practice not starting, not doing anything.

Action is difficult. Deciding is painful. Manifestation, by definition, requires limitation. In order to make something real, you need to carve out and throw out all of the possible ways that something will not be. To make requires substance and grounding. It requires physicality and reality. It inherently means you limit the dream.

As you sketch your dreams for your life and career, you can have multiple jobs. You can own multiple businesses. Make multiple projects. But dwelling in dream land can hinder action.

The longer you hold onto an idea, the more the idea becomes a part of your identity, and the more wrapped up you become in making sure that idea is what will become the reality. The more goal-oriented and dream-oriented, the harder it gets to start. And if you hold on for too long, that idea of perfect execution becomes so big and monstrous, that if you take action—especially if you take action and fail—you’ll have killed or damaged part of your identity, part of what you’re yearning and hoping for. By chasing the dream with action, you put yourself in a scary place: a place where you might not get what you want.

Making dreams become real is a scary business. Ignorance can be a blessing. You sidestep the part where you get distracted by all of your fears of failure because you haven’t been able to imagine them yet.

Sometimes hope and patience can turn a dream into an enormous mental glorification, resulting in the worst sin of all:

Not starting. Specifically, not starting because of fear of failure. Because if you fail, you’re not what you thought you would be. Our minds get in the way sometimes.

Get started. Big-picture thinking has its place. So does action. Sometimes you have to get out of your head, into the world, into the making, and start testing. Start building. Make a small thing, make a bunch of mistakes, shake it off, keep going. Over time, you can iterate. Test a couple ideas.

Worry less about getting there and more about being here. But if you don’t start—you won’t go anywhere.

Do something.

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.            Ralph Waldo Emerson

Looking for the sure thing

It’s been done before, sorry.

It’s never been done before, too risky.

It’s too obvious.

It’s too obscure.

It’s too easy, everyone can do it.

It’s too hard to launch, it’ll never work.

Too indie, why can’t you get backers?

Too mainstream, the man has polluted you, you sold out.

It’s never been practiced, you’ll do it wrong.

You’ve practiced it too much, it can’t possibly be fresh.

Not here, this city/market/audience is too jaded.

Not here, this city/market/audience is untested.

The market has peaked, nothing goes up forever.

The market is dead, it’ll never catch on…

Most bestsellers are surprise bestsellers, because there’s no sure thing, at least not where we want to look for it.
