Six powerful promises Mark & Angela Hack

PMA Added Only..

From The Secret Daily Teachings We can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have. In fact, if somebody was completely and utterly grateful for everything, they would never have to ask for anything, because it would be given to them before they even asked.

That is the power of Gratitude.

May the joy be with you,
Rhonda Byrne

Life is not all rainbows and butterflies.  It can be tough sometimes.  And you’ve paid a heavy price to get this far, so the best option is to really make it count by moving forward from where you are.  Free yourself from the world’s negativity – from the sources of ignorance telling you what you can and cannot do – by promising to look ahead, to live ahead, and to get ahead.  In other words, start making positive promises to yourself!
Promise to fight back, to fight harder, to laugh louder and longer and slap adversity back into its seat whenever it dares to stand against you.  Promise to be a force to be reckoned with – because you are a force to be reckoned with.
Make these promises to yourself, and keep them forever.
Repeat after me: “I promise…”


1.  “I will not hold the past against myself.” – Your problems, your weaknesses, setbacks, regrets and mistakes teach you if you’re willing to learn, or they will punish you if you’re not.   So let them teach you, every day.  Take everything as a lesson learned.  If you regret some of the decisions you have made in the past, stop being so hard on yourself.  At that time, you did your best with the knowledge you had.  At that time, you did your best with the experience you had.  Your decisions were made with a younger mind.  If you were to make these decisions with the wisdom you have today, you would choose differently.  So give yourself a break.  Time and experience has a wonderful way of helping us grow and learn to make better choices today, for ourselves and those we care for.


2.  “I will own my life and never deny responsibility for it.” – Through the grapevine, you may have learned that you should blame your parents, your teachers, your mentors, the education system, the government, etc., but never to blame yourself.  Right?  It’s never, ever your fault… WRONG!  It’s always your fault to a certain extent, because if you want to change, if you want to let go and move on with your life, you’re the only person who can make it happen.  It’s YOUR move to make.  It’s YOUR responsibility.  Own it! (
from the “Adversity” chapter of our book)


3.  “I will live a life that feels right to me, not one that looks right to everyone else.” – Give yourself permission to follow the path that makes YOU happy.  And realize that some people in your life will refuse to walk beside you as you embark on this journey; they simply won’t approve no matter what you say, and that’s OK.  Sometimes when you commit yourself to creating your own happiness, it clashes with the perceptions of others.  Sometimes when you gain something great, you have to let go of something else.  And sometimes this ‘something else’ is a relationship that only wants you to do what they want you to do.


4.  “I will let go of relationships that are obviously not meant to be.” – Most people come into your life temporarily simply to teach you something.  They come and they go and they make a difference.  And it’s OK that they’re not in your life anymore.  Not all relationships last, but the lessons these relationships bring to you do.  If you learn to open your heart and mind, anyone, including the folks who eventually drive you mad, can teach you something worthwhile.  Sometimes it will feel weird when you realize you spent so much time with someone you are no longer connected to, but that’s exactly how it’s supposed to be.  You are exactly where you’re supposed to be.  We all are. (from the “Relationships” chapter of our book)


5.  “I will not let any situation permanently steal my smile.” – Even when times are tough, take a moment to pause and remember who YOU are.  Take a moment to reflect on the things that have real and lasting meaning in your life.  And then smile about how far you’ve come.  Honestly, nothing in this world is more beautiful and powerful than a smile that has struggled through the tears.  Any fool can be happy when times are easy.  It takes a strong soul with real heart to develop smiles out of situations that make us weep.  No matter how long it takes, it will get better.  Keep going.  Tough situations build strong people in the end.


6.  “I will keep stretching myself beyond my previous level of comfort.” – Just because you’re struggling doesn’t mean you’re failing.  Every great success requires some type of worthy struggle to get there.  Know this!  When you’re struggling, that’s when you’re growing stronger and smarter.  The more time you spend there, the faster you learn.  It’s better to spend an extremely high quality ten minutes growing, than it is to spend a mediocre hour running in place.  Every day, you want to practice at the point where you are on the edge of your ability, stretching yourself over and over again, making mistakes, stumbling, learning from those mistakes and stretching yourself even farther. (
from the “Goals and Success” chapter of our book)
And of course, if you’re struggling with any of these points, know that you are not alone. Many of us are right there with you, working hard to feel better, think more clearly, and live a life free of headaches and heartache. This is precisely why Marc and I wrote our book, “1,000 Little Things Happy Successful People Do Differently.” The book is filled with short, concise tips on how to do just that. And believe it or not, I’m currently in the process of re-visiting and re-reading some of our own material this month, just to centre my mind on these positive principles and keep myself on the right track. If you’re interested in following along with me and making positive changes in your life this Spring, or if you simply want to read (or listen) our book at your leisure.

“You are one of a kind and perfection all on your own. To know your sustenance is to know you are expanding now, always, in all ways, always and ever!” – Meichelle McClellan

Michal is the designer and founder of Michal Golan Jewellery.

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…

Like pursuing a career in the arts, building a small business is both incredibly rewarding and utterly terrifying. There are no next pay checks, severance packages, or safety nets for those of us who choose to go at it in the world of art or entrepreneurship. Everything is uncertain.

At the end of the day, I wouldn’t trade this uncertainty for anything—the lessons I’ve picked up coping with it have helped me become a more peaceful and adaptable person in every sphere of my life. Whether you are working on an artist commune, on Wall Street, or anywhere in between, these tips can help you enrich your life and improve your performance where it counts.

First, live in peace with what you cannot change. I learned early on in my career that, according to some people, jewellery is not essential for life. Who knew! What this means is that when the economy stinks (and it certainly has had its low points over the last few decades!), our business suffers badly.

I used to go into a total panic every time the wave of a recession would affect us. I would do everything I could to turn the tide and perk things up again. Turns out one lone designer can’t fix the economy.

Over time, I’ve learned to ride the wave, rather than fighting it. Rolling with the punches—it’s amazing how much more you can do and how much happier you can be when you adapt rather than combat. Sure, slow business is a drag. At the end of the day, though, the economy goes up and the economy goes down–and so does life.

Instead of freaking out about something I can’t change, I’ve learned to use slower periods as times for revaluating, readjusting, and preparing to have the best ready for when things pick up again.

On that note, you have to keep reinventing yourself. In business and in art, I think that this is fairly clear. You won’t get anywhere if you don’t innovate. But what about in life? I think that reinvention is highly underrated. Reinvention isn’t about throwing everything away and starting from scratch. Reinvention is about constantly changing your approach to all aspects of your life so that when the time comes to sit down and take stock, you realize you’ve grown noticeably and significantly.

You have to change your approach constantly to keep making room for improvement! It keeps life fresh and gives you a chance to think critically about what parts of your life and your career are working and what parts can be improved.

Finally, embrace your successes. Be proud of your successes. Own up to your successes. Learn from your successes. But then go back and do the same for your failures. They are so important in helping you grow and flourish, in showing you the path to the life you want, and in having a few great stories to pass along to the kids.

For every smash hit success I’ve had, I had several that fell flat. At the end of the day, eliminating what didn’t work helped me find who I was. So, do not be embarrassed of failure. Do not hide it. Do not blow it out or proportion. Or minimize it, either. We all experience it. We all learn from it. At the end of the day, it makes us who we are.

“Almost all of our problems and limitations stem from unhelpful mental programming. Before you can create the life of your dreams, you must first take back control of your mind.”– Jay Cataldo

10 things to do and be effective

An advantage we all have is the ability to control what we do each day. We can improve our productivity, or not! You decide.  In too many cases, we are the only ones who know when we are falling short of our best level of performance. It’s no surprise that many managers have no idea  regarding the difference between mediocrity and excellence.

 

clip_image001Effective people have the Key to the secret of success, which is to “Take Action”  Like many of the top performers!    You must keep your driving the pace until  you take flight.

Here are 10 things that effective people do

  • clip_image003Starting early. Sam Walton arrived to work at 3 am. Perhaps a little early for many of us, but we need to get an early start. “The early Bird” 
  • Accepting good and bad news as part of moving on!  As you progress up the ladder, you will be in the line of fire, so remember who you pass on the way up!  Because what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.
  • Having a long term perspective. Never thinking about short term gains, thus focusing on building a strong successful foundation success.
  • Avoiding the petty and uninteresting information.  It is counterproductive to spread rumours, be disrespectful or talk bad about colleagues and never criticizing management. Its much better to focus on the task ahead and the results it will bring.
  • Always be professional. Do not lose control. You want others to describe you as a “professional person.” This is the compliment we all strive for thus reaching an important milestone.
  • Focusing on the key areas that bring the results you are aiming for!  At the next meeting, observe and study the leaders of your organization and how they focus on what the important issues are. They have the ability to identify the problems as the professionals they are.
  • Treating others with respect, we are not better, but we have a different look on matters and may have accomplished more in certain areas, we must always appreciate what others bring to the table.
  • Be humble, we do not know everything. We must be open to working in teams.  When we put our minds together, we can tackle enormous projects, which lead to huge benefits for the organization.
  • Confront problems!  Address immediately. Those who are excellent performers are aware of small problems and prevent them from escalating. Taking a proactive approach is preferred.
  • Be committed to sharing the wealth and knowledge. Rewarding those who do well, as we are not solely responsible for the huge accomplishments. Be humble, and praise others publicly and privately when they contribute to our goals and initiatives.
  • Successful people are extraordinary in the sense that they understand the importance of knowledge, commitment, and humility. The process to greatness is well established but realizing it requires significant effort.

Five Secrets Guaranteeing Success

Focus on the WHY of life and not the HOW, remembering that where focus goes, energy flows.                                                                                                                               Success and failure comes in pairs. Either you have a pair of Aces called “Resolve & Undenied” or a pair of jokers called “Wishing & Wanting You’re hand to play.       Gray Lawrence

What if there was a secret book somewhere that could virtually guarantee your success, would you want to know where it was? What if there were unwritten rules and laws inside that book that only a small number of people knew about and what if those laws could literally change your whole life; would you play by those rules and adhere to those laws in order to have the life you really want? Would that secret book be your Bible?

Think about it for a moment; if you were handed a secret book with a set of rules and a simple but powerful formula to follow that would allow you to own your life, would you read that book from front to back cover and put the secrets to work for you or would you leave it standing idle on your bookshelf and forget about it?

(Wikipedia)

If you’re ready to push aside your past and plan a future that is everything you’ve ever wanted, what follows is a secret formula to making millions in your MLM that is more valuable than any book you will ever read. Let’s take a look at it…

5 Secrets To Changing Your Life

The First Secret – Your Past is NOT Your Future.

We are all influenced by the past. It might be that our parents, peers or siblings presented us with situations and challenges when we were young children that we were not always comfortable with and that we struggled to come through in the way we would have wanted to. This is simply a part of life but for some, this time of failure (as it is often viewed), leaves a heavy footprint in the sand.

clip_image001

The secret to creating the future you desire and truly deserve is to leave this footprint behind. Allow the sea to wash over it until the footprint is washed away. Now move on…

The Second Secret – Your Beliefs Become Your Reality.

The human mind is more powerful that any computer. It has the ability to store an unlimited amount of information and solve the most complex problems and has taken our species from the dark ages to a place where we are now globally connected in ways many of our ancestors could only dream of. We all have the power to create change and develop ideas into life changing realities. Those who we remember for their achievements and inventions had one single thing in common; a belief in what they were able to achieve and that belief enabled them to create what we remember them for. Edison’s first electric light bulb, Einstein’s theory of relativity, Levi Strauss’ Denims. We remember their achievements and inventions which were a result of their belief in a new reality.

When you focus on what you believe will be your achievements and see them mapped out in front of you (goal by goal), your beliefs become your reality over time and your journey, struggle by struggle, simply becomes a part of the process of getting to where you are going.

The Third Secret – Your Actions Become Your Habits.

Affirmations create long term mental change and are valuable to the process of change. Results come from a different place and are achieved as an output of some kind of action. Great results are the outcome of focused activity, while poor results are the outcome of unplanned random acts (subconsciously intended to fail).

Successful entrepreneurs have three basic attributes in common; strong work ethic, self belief and laser targeted focus on the task in hand. This doesn’t mean you should never have more than one thing in the pot when you are planning to cook up some serious change. In contrast, wealth is often created through multiple streams of income. The key to creating that wealth, though, is to focus and complete one task at a time. Creating, planning and carrying out many tasks over time that will have a deep impact on the overall plan you have put in place.

Understand why you want to achieve change and then put a detailed plan in place of how that change will take place. Once your plan is in place, break it down into daily, weekly and monthly tasks that you must complete and watch your actions become the habits of a successful entrepreneur.

The Fourth Secret – Your Heart Will Lead To Wealth.

Business is often seen as the domain of grey suits, reserved relationships and serious conversation and at times this is needed. There is a place also for laughter, love and deep connections. Connecting with your customers, business partners and team members and creating the type of workplace or business that doesn’t feel like work and feels more like a cause. Creating great connections brings people together behind a cause and allows you to bring people with you on your journey.

These connections will help you to truly unlock the secret and throw open the door to riches by creating the lifestyle you are searching for. A life unrestricted by the “norms” and expectations of business life and led by your heart and not your head.

The Fifth Secret – Your Goals Are Greater Than Your Gain.

Great gifts are often wrapped in simple paper. When we begin this journey we’re often so deep in debt or feeling so lost in our current place in life, that our focus is on something that is simply material. We’d like a new car or a holiday with the family or we would do anything to have an extra few thousand in our bank account each month. These material things will only carry us so far on this journey and after a while will cease to inspire us to reach our true potential.

clip_image003

The secret to creating the life you know is out there waiting for you is to have a goal that is truly bigger than your gain. This is different for each of us and will only come to you when you are ready to receive it. When it does, make it your legacy and your journey will fall into place.

The Secret Book – Changing Your Life

Changing your life and creating the future you desire starts when you make a decision to fulfil your dream. You may be focused on your current problems, your challenges and concerns right now and have little more in your sights than that looming credit card bill or mortgage payment. You may hate your job and the people you work with or feel that your social life has simply vanished beneath a pile of personal responsibilities and free time is nothing but a dream. These are real challenges and often take over our lives without being invited to..

When we push through these challenges we are able to make a space for the things we truly value to come into focus; our family and loved ones, our health and happiness and our true desire to leave the world a better place through our actions and achievements. This is the real secret.   Neil Ashworth

This decade is going to be a BIG one for the multi level marketing industry and 2012 is likely to be the year MLM really takes off but before you head off into the wilderness and find yourself up at all hours searching for the best MLM to join take a few minutes to read the steps below and set yourself off on the right foot. Read on to find the best MLM in 2012.

Let’s begin!

Multi level marketing is a proven and time tested business model, but for many it is still the land that time forgot. A place where only the brave (or some say foolish) will ever go and where great MLM monsters walk the land waiting for some unsuspecting newcomer to pick up and devour. Face facts, network marketing has had its share of horror stories over the years but are those stories a fair reflection of the industry and what it can offer you in 2012 and beyond?

I don’t believe YOU should ever believe what others tell you is the truth, until you can stand and review the information being provided to you feeling truly informed and knowledgeable. Without knowledge you have no control over your future and with knowledge your future is truly limitless.  Gather that knowledge and do your due diligence before committing your future (or not) to the wonderful world of MLM.

Frustration can become like a chain and it can strangle your efforts for success or you can get the key out and open the lock. Key is the key of Decision that unchains the future, your future

Working hard is the foundation for any success in life, but many people have the “What if” Disease! , they see “Working hard as Hardly Working” & expect the same results

Gray Lawrence 

The future looks bright for those who chose to shine and become a star

Life is Simple Positive & Negative

What is life but something we are part of and it is up to use too fulfil the contract we are designed for!  Your belief is your path to what ever you wish for.

 

Life is simple and is made up of two things “Positive & Negative things” Each area of your life, whether its your Wealth, Health,Relationships, Work or Happiness, are all positive or negative to you!  You are healthy or not healthy, you have plenty of money or very little, your relationships are happy or difficult, work is exciting and successful or dissatisfying and unsuccessful, you are filled with happiness or you don’t feel good all the time.  You have good and bad years, good ad bad times and good or bad days, these decisions are your choices, make the right one’s!!!

 

To have more negative things than positive things in your life shows you something is wrong and you know it, when you see others happy you know you deserve this, again think bad things you get bad results.  Chose to think the right things and get brilliant results.  Most people do not realise the great life they have or how they came by it, but they used the power that is the cause of everything good in life, why don’t you?

 

Love has been discussed over the centuries since time began by every religion, great thinker, philosopher, prophet, and leader. But many of us have not truly understood these great words of wisdom, even though they where teachings for those in their time! there is one truth and message though, to the world it is: “Still The Same Today”  Love is the greatest power in the universe.

 

“What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists”   Alexander Graham Bell

I hope you feel something deep from inside your body mind and heart, make it count!

 

Gray Lawrence

“The greatest power we have is the power of choice. It’s an actual fact that if you’ve been moping in unhappiness, you can choose to be joyous instead and, by effort, lift yourself into joy. If you tend to be fearful, you can overcome that misery by choosing to have courage. Even in darkest grief you have a choice – The whole trend and quality of anyone’s life is determined in the long run by the choices that are made.” Norman Vincent Peale
