Dare to be different Stephen C Thomas

I have not changed the story but added PMA I hope you enjoy.

Attitude
Success comes to those who become success-conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure-conscious. – Napoleon Hill

Do you want a life change, but you also want to be like everybody else? I am here to tell you that I don’t think it will work very well. If you want true life change, you have to dare to be different.

People will think I’m weird!

They might. One of the things that stops most people from changing their lives is that they are afraid someone will make fun of them, criticize them. It is a possibility, but probably not as big as you think. Many people will admire you for having the courage to be different.

When I was in high school, I remember a new kid coming to school in our senior year, a time when it was most important to fit in. John was a strange kid. He didn’t really fit into any of the cliques and he was friendly to everyone. He made no attempt to change who he was in order to fit in.

Just about everyone admired and liked John. Several people started acting like him. He became one of the most popular kids in school.

Some people might think you are weird, but many will admire you and wish they had the nerve to be different.

You might. Your friends might think that you have gone over to the dark side or something. They might think that you have started taking drugs or that you have become mentally unstable. Most likely, they will be intimidated by your change and your courage to be different. They may make noises like they think you are strange, but in reality, they will be jealous.

The question I have for you is this. Do you want to disappear into who your friends think you should be, or do you want to be the person you long to be, dream of being? If these are really your friends they will understand.

I won’t know how to act!

Who cares? You are doing this so that you can change your life, change who you are. You are not doing it so that you can remain the same. It will take some getting used to, but you will find your way.

Learning to be the new you, the one who dares to be different, may take some time, but you will find that if you accept it, it will soon become fun. You will find new ways of being, new ways of behaving that are more fun than the old ways.

Why not start now?
I will lose all my friends

Why wait? Why not start being different now, right now. Be the person you always wanted to be. Change your life to what you know you should be; what you are created to be. Dare to be different! Dare to change your life. Dare to live the life you want!

Before trying to master others, be sure you are the master of yourself.
When you develop a Positive Mental Attitude, you immediately set yourself apart from the crowd. You become a leader because positive thinking leads to positive action, while negative thinking leads to apathy and inaction. When you take the initiative in any situation, others will follow simply because they like to associate with people who know where they are going. In order to lead, however, you must first be willing to discipline yourself. The first rule of leadership is never to ask others to do what you are unwilling to do yourself. You can lead only by example. Being a leader requires you to work harder and longer than the others and proving you are the master of your own destiny. – Napoleon Hill

Choosing the Right Network Marketing Business FOR YOU!!

The networked revolution is creating huge profits, significant opportunities, and a lot of change. What it’s not doing is providing millions of brain-dead, corner office; follow the manual middle class jobs. And it’s not going to.

Dreamers aren’t busy applying for jobs at minimum wage, they don’t eagerly buy the latest fashions, and they’re a pain in the ass to keep happy.

Dreams fade away because we can’t tolerate the short term pain necessary to get to our long term goal.

 

When trying to select which network marketing company to join, you should not just look at what they sell nor should you just look at what they pay. What you should look at is… the Package!

After all, their products / services may be the best of their kind in the whole world but if:

§ the commission is lousy, or

§ there is no demand for their products, or

§ the management screw everything up, or

§ your up line are not interested in you

…you will not see the company around for long!

When I look at companies, I always use the following seven criteria to determine the worth of the Package:

1. Trading In A Huge And Expanding Market

The network marketing company must be trading in a HUGE and EXPANDING market if it is to give itself every chance for success. As an example, music is a huge market but with the advent of CDs and DVDs would you now want to be setting up a new music business based on vinyl records? Of course not … it’s a huge but shrinking, not an expanding, market! On the other hand the anti aging skin care and nutritional supplements markets are huge and expanding ones as the baby boomers want to look, feel and stay younger.

2. Products / Services

I personally prefer to deal with Helping people to save money rather than consumable products. Consumable products are bought, used and then replaced on a regular basis … normally monthly. If you are going to deal with a consumable product, always check the potential for repeat orders from your customers. this can be hard work although rewarding “IF” people keep buying.

If the products are not consumable, make sure that there is a way to receive further income than for just a one-off sale – otherwise it is more a form of Direct Selling rather than network marketing.  Direct selling is something we all know about and feels more like pressure selling, but “SAVING MONEY is not, we all like to save money for those things we could not otherwise afford,. Income potential from any network marketing  (email for the book from the form to: gray@savewithsmallbills.co.uk business (MLM) is valued to your business strategy and effort & determination.

Look at what the company is offering or selling and ask yourself, “could I be proud to build an empire with these products / services?”

If not, keep looking!

3. Fair Pay Plan

Now, do not expect to FULLY understand all aspects of any network marketing company’s pay plan the first time you are shown it – some (most actually!) are complicated and need time to absorb. Having said that, DO expect to be able to understand it after a little while.

There is really only one thing you need to know about the company pay plan and that is – does it work?

Does it give you a fair return for the effort you are going to put in? Is there any proof of substantial incomes being made by distributors who have been working the business for two or three years?

4. Experienced Management

If you are going to invest your future with a network marketing company, it is only prudent to make sure that they are `healthy’ and under control of an experienced and capable team. Do as many checks as you can on the company and even ask the company if they will make information available to you. They will probably say, `No’ but if you do not ask… you do not get!

If the company you are looking at has been around for more than 10 years, and is continuing to grow, it would appear that the management is capable of successfully running a business.  my own personal MLM is growing daily and has been for over 2o years AND it is a UK business!

If you are looking at a newer company, you will definitely want to research the experience and successes of the management team. Just because a person was a great network marketer, does not mean that he or she will be a great businessperson – failures by such people in this industry have proven this point.

In fact, most owners of successful network marketing businesses have never been network marketers themselves. They are entrepreneurial business people who saw a need in the market and the power of network marketing and had the confidence to put their money where their mouth is and use their skills to build their businesses.

5. Support Team

A well-used acronym in Network Marketing is T.E.A.M. – Together Everyone Achieves More. It is very suitable for our industry because the people in your Up line Support Team truly have a vested interest in your success.

Your Sponsor may be new to this business, too, so ask him or her to introduce you to, or 3-way you into, members of your Up line Support Team. Ask questions:

§ How successful are they

§ How long have they been with this company

§ Did they have previous experience

§ Did they bring in people from their last company

§ What support will they be giving you

Here is a good place to remind you that the ONLY way to be successful in this business is to help others become successful. Your Up line Support Team has a very strong vested interest in your success.

6. Training

There must be a commitment to training, support and communication. Find out how the company puts this commitment into practice?

When and how will you receive training, and how much will it cost you – if anything.

Many leaders (like myself) have their own separate distributor training systems in place and if there is one in place for your team, find out how much it will cost.

7. You MUST Be Passionate About The Package

As I have already said, it is the package that you must look at not just the individual components.

Once you have reviewed the company package, you must decide whether it is the right one for you. You must feel comfortable with it as it is going to be the vehicle that will carry you forward to your goals.

One thing to remember is that no company will be absolutely perfect and never have problems – ALL companies have problems, as do those in all other industries. I like this titbit from Tom Schreiter (Big Al) fortunenow.com:

“Amateurs look for the perfect business with the perfect product, with the perfect timing, with the perfect price, with the perfect management, with the perfect plan, with the perfect support team…

Well, you get the picture. These people are always frustrated and switching companies, looking for a business without problems.

News flash: All businesses have problems.

Professionals know all businesses have problems. They simply choose the business they wish to have their problems with.”

You cannot at this moment fully understand the business – it takes years to gain knowledge and experience. What you can understand is the way you feel about it. Does it feel right? Do you believe that all of the criteria are in place for you?

The most important question is, “Do you really feel that over the course of time you could become passionate and excited about the package?”

If “Yes” – great, you have found the company for you.

If, “No” – keep looking because without passion and excitement you will not succeed.

After all, if YOU cannot feel passionate and excited about the company, why would you expect others to feel any different? 

The decision is yours!!

The method by which DESIRE for riches can be transmuted into its financial
equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps,

First. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money.” Be definite as to the amount. (There is  a psychological reason for definiteness) .                                                                  Second. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you  desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing.)
Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.
Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.
Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ—SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY..

Positive Thinking The Power and Abundance, of…

Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne  Creator of The Secret                      Did you know that if your life was not changing, you would not exist?                   Our Universe and everything in it is continually changing, because our Universe is made of energy. Energy can only exist if it is in motion and changing. If energy stopped being in motion, our entire Universe and all Life would vanish. Our lives are also energy, and therefore they too must always be in motion and continue to change. You cannot stop the motion and change in your life, and nor would you want to. The changing nature of energy gives us Life. It causes Life to grow and causes us to grow.   

And yet when there is a big change of energy which affects our lives, we often label it as bad, and cause ourselves sorrow, pain, and suffering  by resisting the change. But you always have a choice. In the Universe there is never just one way. You are never trapped with no way out, no matter what has occurred. There are two paths available to you in every circumstance and moment in your life. The two paths are the positive and the negative, and YOU are the one who chooses which path you will take. 

You have the power to transform negative change into positive, but you cannot do it by resisting the change. Resisting the change is focusing on the negative and it is choosing the negative path, which brings with it even more negativity, more pain, and misery.  

To transform the negative into positive, you must choose the positive path and command that this changing energy transforms into millions of blessings that pour down on you and everyone involved. Command the changing energy to bring unlimited good and positivity. Know and believe in your heart that as you command it, it must be done.   

And then the day will come in the not too distant future, when you will look back and see all the blessings that you brought into this world through you and change. 

The power of positive thinking   The Abundance Project with added Positive Affirmations

Positive results never come from negative thoughtsHave you ever met someone with a positive outlook on life so powerful, it’s almost contagious?
Do you notice that good things happen to people who resist negative thoughts, even when the future looks bleak for them?  Do you wish you knew how to unlock the power of positive thinking for yourself? Positive Thinking is the Key to Happiness and Abundance The power of positive thinking is arguably one of the most valuable assets we possess as human beings.  It can help us endure difficult trials with patience, it allows us to visualize our own success, and ultimately it leads us to achieve our goals if we continue on the path we’ve outlined for ourselves.

If you’re a person that defaults to negative thinking, it will be difficult for you to ever feel the happiness and abundance the universe has in store for you.  If you’re tired of negative thinking and you want to learn how to turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts, then you’re prepared to take the next step. Maybe you’ve underestimated the power of positive thinking in the past, or maybe you never thought it was possible for you.   Either way, it’s time to learn how to fill your life with more happiness, abundance, and prosperity. The truth is the power of positive thinking is the key to unlocking the life you are meant to have. How Can I Learn The Power of Positive Thinking?

The difference between positive thinkers and negative thinkers is the attitude each carries with them. You undoubtedly know people that can put a negative spin on any situation, and on the flip side, you also probably know people that can find the positive in any situation. So what is the difference between those two types of people?

Positive thinkers have trained their minds to visualize success—regardless of what Positive staements of affermation are a great method by which we appreciate your lifetheir vision of success looks like.   They know that if they expect failure, unhappiness, and difficulty ahead, that’s exactly what they find. If on the other hand they decide in advance that they will remain positive and see the end from the beginning, they will find success no matter what challenge comes their way. Positive thinkers know better than anyone that positive thoughts breed positive results.   They also follow the three tips we’ve included below. 3 Ways to Unlock the Power of Positive Thinking in Your Life

1: Expect Great Things to Happen in Your Life

The key to finding the success you seek in life is to visualize it first. Whether you want that next promotion, you want to run a marathon in under four hours, or you want to date the man living across the street, the process to obtain those results is the same—you need to think like you already have them. If you have a hard time doing this, try to make a little game for yourself.  Give yourself a point every time you imagine a positive outcome for yourself, and take a point away every time you think about negative consequences. Pretty soon you’ll be motivated to stay in a positive state of mind.

2: Stop and keep away from Negative Influences

This can mean watching the late edition of the daily news every evening or hanging out with your friend that can never seem to look at the bright side. The more you hang around negative influences, the easier it will be for you to get sucked into similar thinking patterns.  This doesn’t mean you have to break off a bunch of friendships, but you can try to encourage those around you to exude positive energy when you’re around them.  That’s not too much to ask, and it will help you and those you have a close relationship with

3: Remove the Words “I Can’t” Out of Your Vocabulary for ever…!

I struggled with this one for a long time before I finally learned how much it affected my behaviour and self-confidence. I had a habit of setting limits on myself, and it made it impossible for me to do anything incredible, because I was always bound by those limits. If you want more happiness, abundance, and success in your life, you need to take a different path than I did.  Learn now that “I can’t” are the two most debilitating words in the human language. Tell yourself “I know I can”, and “I know I will.”  You’ll be surprised how your mind will adjust to the words you speak If you can learn to expect great things to happen in your life, stop hanging around negative people, and permanently take the words “I can’t” out of your vocabulary, you will find the success, abundance and happiness you seek. What are you waiting for?  Unlock the power of positive thinking right away!

The Truth about being a Networking Boss

No one is capable of giving direction unless he or she knows how to take directions and carry them out.
An essential quality of leadership is developing the ability to persuade others to align their goals with yours and those of the organization. Until you, yourself, are able to join forces with others in the pursuit of a common objective, you will never persuade them to join your cause. Effective leaders recognize the value of working together, and they learn how to follow directions before being entrusted with the responsibility for the performance of others. Good leaders show by example how they expect others to behave. Even though the troops may be trained to follow orders unquestioningly, the officer always leads them into battle. You cannot push others to follow your example; you must pull them along with you. When you show by your every word and deed that you are a person of character, one who works for the greater good of the entire organization, your people will follow.    Napoleon Hill

You are no one’s Boss and never will be – despite what your title says.

"My new distributor…"    "My team…"    "You’re under me…"
How often do I hear and read these phrases? A lot.  More often than not, they’re used out of naiveté rather than with any intent to make the up line feel superior or the down line feel inferior.  But we’ve got to be constantly aware of what comes out of our mouths.

We’re offering people the chance to break free of the 40-hour (and more!) work week chains of working for someone else, yet using language like this can very quickly make our team members feel like they’ve swapped, or are in the process of swapping, one boss for another.

On that note, we cannot force any of our team members to work harder either – they’re a ‘volunteer army’ and are free to do as little or as much as they want, to fit around their own unique lifestyle, and in line with what THEY want from their business.

The Science of Getting Rich

Remember this, and never take money from anyone without giving more in use value than the money you are receiving. In people’s lives, this is one of the main causes of lack of money, unsuccessful job experiences, and failed businesses. Give more value than the money you are receiving; in your job, in your business, and in every part of your life.              May the joy be with you, The Secret Rhonda Byrne

Now, don’t get me wrong, if someone’s activity is not congruent with the goals they have set themselves, then we need to bring this to their attention and some course-correcting needs doing, but ultimately we have to firstly be GRATEFUL that they’re part of our team, and secondly RESPECT the level they want to work at.

Be the type of person you wan't to meetLeadership in network marketing is a lot more subtle and refinedTeam Work than management is in ‘traditional’ business where the carrot and stick approach can be employed to move people in the direction management wish.  More often than not, it’s the tools we have at our disposal (events and the power of association building belief and enthusiasm which can lead to increased activity) that are far more effective at helping to increase a team members activity level than simply asking or telling them to do it.

A positive mental attitude is an irresistible force that knows no such thing as an immovable body.
Time and again we hear stories about ordinary people who do seemingly impossible things when they find themselves in an emergency situation. They perform herculean feats of strength and endurance, things they never dreamed they were capable of doing. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could harness that strength and make it available anytime you need it? You can — if you believe you can. No doubt you can remember a time in your life when you were exceptionally focused on your objective, a time when you achieved more in less time than ever before. Perhaps it was an impending vacation that motivated you to get everything done before you departed, or perhaps it was a “must pass” exam that helped you focus your concentration. The intensity that you developed in those situations is always available to you when you have a Positive Mental Attitude.   Napoleon Hill
