Successful Networker – Think Thinner Exercise v Visualisation = Power of your mind

"Sometimes we develop grand concepts of what happiness might look like for us, but if we pay attention, we can see that there are little symbols of happiness in every breath that we take." — His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa

Visualize Before Sleep – Wake Up Thinner

Danger thin ice boardCould there be any truth to those claims that you can think yourself thinner? On the surface it doesn’t seem likely, since it is hard to imagine how you could change your metabolic rate (the rate at which you burn fat) simply by changing your way of thinking.


But of course changing your metabolic rate isn’t the only way to think yourself thinner. If you can convince yourself to adopt habits that reduce the amount of food you eat, or change the types of foods you eat to a more healthy selection, then you are going to lose weight. That’s not rocket science. The trouble is that it can be hard to implement healthy habits, especially if you are saddled with bad ones that you have picked up over the duration of your lifetime.

Weight loss is an on-going problem fro most of us, keeping the rightVisualise heart rate weight is in need of exercise.  Yes “Exercise” we all need this for our health   and following the latest fad diets and trying the popular exercise programs of the day, does not work unless you are committed. Both of these approaches turned out to be based on a poor understanding of how the human body responds to food and exercise.
Even when one stumbles across good advice it is hard to stick to it, one needs a mentor or person to compete with the suggested course of action for the length of time that is needed to see long-lasting results.

Until you examine your core beliefs about food and exercise then and only then are you able to see where the problem is. After that it was just a matter of figuring out how to isolate those beliefs and replace them with ones that helped, rather than hindering your efforts to lose weight.
One of the technique to learn is visualisation.

This is the practice of running a movie through your mind of the results you hope to achieve from your efforts. Athletes will often employ the practice of visualisation when they are having trouble attaining the degree of performance they think they ought to be able to achieve but are not. In fact, using visualization to help get over the fear of standing on stage for example, or any form of exercise we all would do if time allowed .

Visualisation can also be used to help lose weight, visualising yourself  slimmer and healthier before you go to sleep at night is one method. But who does or remember to as by the time you are ready to sleep that is the easier option: To Sleep!  This can reprogram your mind over time, a long time. Subconsciously we can do this yet we do not and still look in the mirror for the real picture – Faith is the key  Of course you can tell yourself you are thinner and fitter but you do not feel thinner and fitter, or even confident, this can be over come with the blade or alternative weight loss programme

Now Any weight loss programmes is as good as the regime, products etc. but you have the deciding factor in your mind.  Habits are the making of your fitness and I mean the right habits. you are not going to wake up any thinner but belief and self help  is the key with your inner Runner fit in chartself (that slim body in your visualisations). Thus it will encourage you to  establish the right habits to make your outer self merge with your inner self.   In practice this means you will begin eating more healthy foods and enjoy those foods more than you used to do. You’ll see more rewards in working out and be less inclined to skip workouts. In short, you’ll do the RIGHT thing more often than you did before.

The key is to start, if confidence is not there yet do look at weight loss programmes, like “Tighten Tone & Firm in 45 minutes”  It’s not magic. It’s just a consequence of tapping into the power of your subconscious mind to get done the things you know are possible but until now you may have had trouble putting into effect.

Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic." — Laini Taylor

Successful Networker–Marketing– Products = Prospects

Many successful people have found opportunities in failure and adversity that they could not recognize in more favourable circumstances.
Samuel Johnson once observed that the prospect of being hanged wonderfully focuses the mind. You yourself may have found that your mind seems sharpest when you are faced with the greatest difficulties. Desperation often proves you really are better than you think. But with the exception of an immediate threat to your life or health, there are few situations that require instantaneous action. When the world seems to be conspiring against you and nothing is working out right, pause for a few moments to think the situation through — then develop the most appropriate plan of action, the one that has the greatest likelihood of success. – Napoleon Hill

Your first Ten prospects 

Smiling Group of Professionals --- Image by © Royalty-Free/CorbisThis is the secret of the new marketing especially “Network Marketing”.  Find ten people. Ten people who trust respect need and listen to you and what you have to offer and if they like it, you win. The only issue is what you offer has to be what they desire of course If it is what they are looking for they will each find you ten more people (or more) but if they do not you need to reconsider what it is you are offering either products and or a Networking Opportunity.

If you have done your homework and spoken to leaders in the industry you have chosen then there should be no problem, well only one the ten you have chosen, are they the right ten?  This is where your discussion on the subject in hand has to be honest accurate and above all viable.

Team structureNews of your commitment and support will spread and of course if you continue in this vein your business and your team’s business will grow. Not as fast as you want, but faster than you could ever imagine. This of course depends on support, on-going training and how you build your team and your businesses.  This new approach will change the posture and timing of everything you do and will require more time and commitment from you and your team if this opportunity is to succeed.


Training and the networking company policies will determine the path you must take. Talking to the unknown masses does not and never has worked and cold calling, has never in my eyes provided the right people thus wasting a lot of valuable time that could be spent with the people that are looking and feel comfortable around you “People Skills” are paramount! People are only human and like to be treated as individuals and that they are the most important person with you at any given time or moment.

The timing means that the idea of a ‘launch’ and press releases and the big unveiling is unnecessary, the company if new will do all that is required, but if the networking company is or has settled down there is no need, as the skills and success of the company will show it’s commitment to you it’s products and any new members. It makes more sense to plan on the gradual build that turns into a tidal wave. Organize it well and spend money appropriately.

In time this advice will be standard in the industry of home based businesses, but even after the many years this style of business has bee around there are still those that promise a fortune over night and not even any training.  We have a long way to go, but with company systems improving it is the right way forward and as the saying goes:

`Caveat emptor` or “Buyer Be Ware”


Your reputation is what people think you are; your character is what you are.
You want your reputation and your character to match, but concentrate on your character. You may be able to fool others about the kind of person you really are for a time, but it seldom lasts for long. The surest way to make sure your character and your reputation are the same is to live your life in such a way that nothing you do would embarrass you if it were printed on the front page of the newspaper. Good character means not ever taking ethical shortcuts, even though everyone else may be doing so. You build good character by doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. = Napoleon Hill

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…

Love is all there is. The energy of love is the basis for all you know. You and every soul were born of love and you and every soul want to vibrate closer and closer to the vibration of love. When you vibrate closer to the energy of love, you become happier, freer, more creative, more joyful, and more vibrant.

Perhaps romantic love is the expression most equated with the significance of love, but intimate passion is only one form. To love is to feel joy and pleasure toward any person, place, thing, or idea.

Love is fire. Love is curiosity. Love is wisdom. Love is seeing beyond the illusion. Love is knowing. Love is creating. Love is bold. Love is strong. Love is eternal. Love is the power of life. Love is the source of all good. Love is the consequence. Love is the reason. Love is being. Love is peace. Love is all.

If you want to live more in the vibration of love to be happier, take a few wise steps this month. These steps sound simple on paper, but they take effort and focus to master. If you follow the prescribed steps, you WILL be happier by the end of a month.

1. Love yourself more.

For the next two weeks, become conscious of your “random” thoughts about yourself.

“He won’t like my idea.” “I’m such an idiot for forgetting.” “I look fat.” “I can’t win.” For every limiting phrase you think, flip it 180 degrees and tell yourself the opposite or restate it with humour. “He may like my idea!” “Oops, goofed! Oh well!” “Hey, a few extra pounds means I get to wow everyone with my sparkling personality and not just my great looks!” “I am a winner!”

It takes focus, but it’s worth it. Let love grow.

Love is an aspect of being, and when you act from being, the power you draw on is limitless because it comes from the source.” —  Deepak Chopra

2. Appreciate the good in anything and everything.

For example:

You broke your arm. You are tempted to fret about the inconvenience, but look for the benefit instead. You’ve been the only one driving carpool, so now someone else gets a chance to take responsibility.

Fourteen more inches of snow. Ahhh, a perfect day for a fire, hot cocoa, and a game of Scrabble.

Let love grow.

3. Release judgment.

Memorize the statement, “Everyone is doing the best they can within their level of awareness.” And then live as though you know it’s true. People are different. They show variety and depth, originality and plainness. They cry too much and laugh too loud. They show up late and forget birthdays. They eat, they regret, and they love. They live sadly and they live happily.

Among the variety, there is only one truth that they all have in common. They all want to be valued and appreciated. They all want love. Love them. Love them for who, what, where, and why they are. Love them more and you will love you more.

Let love grow. You will uncover more happiness because you intend to!


Happiness depends upon ourselves.” —Aristotle “The only joy in the world is to begin.” —Cesare Pavese

Successful Networker = Investing in yourself = Second Income

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

Always Invest in Yourself

Blocks Invest uprightIf you are interested in personal development it is important you commit to investing in yourself. No matter what it is you want to improve, no matter what you want to achieve, it will almost certainly require an investment or will be much better and be achieved much quicker with the right investment.

Start by listing the areas of improvement to which you wish to commit. This can be in a very wide area, and do not limit yourself to one particular criteria.

Look around you and see what resources are out there which could help you make serious inroads on those improvements you desire. Examine them carefully. There are a lot of scams out there, but there are also a lot of diamonds if you look carefully enough. Try to find at least one for each of the areas on your list. Don’t worry at this stage about how much money they may cost. All that should concern you right now is whether you believe they will help you achieve your goals better or faster, or both.

Once you have come up with the list of investments you want to make in yourself and are reasonably comfortable that, at least for now, this is a fairly complete list, the next step is to work out how you will pay for them. seek advice from leaders in the world of “Network Marketing” for advice and training

One problem many people have, though, is that after they have paid all their monthly bills there is no money left to invest in themselves.

What may surprise you, though, is that no matter how much you earn you will almost certainly still find there is no money left after paying the bills. This is corrected or avoided by following a proven system and listening to your up line leaders.

Parkinson’s Second Law

The answer lies in Parkinson’s Second Law. If you have not heard his First Law – “work expands to fill the available time”. But perhaps you missed the Second Law – “expenditure rises to meet the available income”. Parkinson’s Second Law is often applied to bureaucracies and they way they can needlessly spend our money. But it is equally applicable to personal expenditure.

The reasoning behind Parkinson’s Second Law is that if you look carefully at your spending you will always find cuts you can make without impacting noticeably on your overall lifestyle. Be honest with yourself, initially in the beginning of your networking business expenses are limited to a joining fee, ask your leaders for advice on what else is needed to start your business.


build blocks goals                                                                                Examine your budget in the first step carefully.  Step back and discuss with your leaders or the people you are joining to make your part time income your “GOALS” to your financial freedom.


Pay Yourself First by creating that “Second Income”

Pay yourself first. Before you pay anyone else, you may invest in a P. A but always an accountant. that is when you arrive at the level of income you desire via your “Online Marketing Opportunity.”  There are major advantages in setting up an online marketing business, having the money to purchase all the things you could not afford before!   Do not feel guilty about doing this. Every day of your adult life up to now you have either paid everyone else or taken a salary, but never that little extra for those long hours and weekends working for your “BOSS!”  Now it is your turn! and it will be a part time income!! on part time hours.

How much should you pay yourself? Well, that depends, of course on many factors, like outlay of travel expenses and product’s to demonstrate with or buy in advance, if there is a requirement . Some coaches suggest it should be a minimum amount of 10% of your  earnings as you grow but seek advice, remember that is what your leaders are there for, they have been where you are now.

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

The second advantage is that you will be completely in control. You can invest as much or as littleControl time as you like. As your business grows you may decide to give up your "day job" and spend all your working hours moving your internet business forward – but that is entirely up to you. There will be no boss looking over your shoulder telling you to speed things up or do things differently. Of course, you should also recognise this can be a disadvantage – you will need to have some good self-discipline to ensure you spend enough time doing the right things.

The third advantage is linked to the second. You do not have to work on specific days or at specific times. You can choose when to do this work. If you wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep you can sit at the computer and do something to move your online business forward.

The fourth advantage is that once you have set up your business properly it will begin to generate profits for you even if you do not put a lot of effort in to grow it. You will need to continue doing some work in order to maintain it, so I do not believe it is correct to call it "passive income", but it should certainly generate you high profits for not a great deal of work as long as you have built it correctly. Using your up line leaders skills training and experiences


training lap topBe aware, though, that as with any other business an online marketing business will require you to invest time training  and effort. Do not be misled by claims you will often see that suggest this is a miracle "instant millionaire" formula. It is not! You can certainly become very wealthy if you choose to do so, but this will not happen over night.

You will also probably find there will be a few false starts before you get your own formula right. Ideally you should take advice from your internet marketing leaders who have been there and done that and who can stop you needing to re-invent the wheel yourself. This will not be cheap, but it will save you making costly mistakes and ultimately ensure you reach your goal faster if you choose the right leaders that put you before themselves.

Invest in Yourself

Once you have started these habits and started creating your additional second income, start to invest with this money. Not in company shares. Not in bricks and mortar. You are going to invest in something far more valuable than that. You are going to invest in yourself, further training and the skills learned you will be able to pass onto your recruits or new members, BUT remember you have to put their needs desires and dreams before you own, if built correctly it will flow, then they will repeat what you have taught them to their new members.  Always listen to the people to find out what they want and time they can spare. “Wisdom is the rule of all leaders.”


Everything comes if a man will only wait. I have brought myself by long meditation to the conviction that a human being with a settled purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a will that will stake even existence for its fulfilment. Benjamin Disraeli

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…

One of the greatest failings in business school is that our future business leaders are taught to ask "what can you do for me?" or, in the words of Janet Jackson, "what have you done for me lately?"

This isn’t just a business view, however; this permeates modern Western culture and makes the words of John F. Kennedy ring hollow: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." (Few people also recall the next line in Kennedy’s speech: "My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.")

JFK had it right and it’s how I live my life: I endeavour to give, to contribute, to make what I have learned and figured out available to everyone without charge, without barriers, without restrictions or limitations. My business is all about disseminating information to improve people’s lives, gratis. No subscription fee, no download charge, no membership requirement.

I live my personal life with the same core philosophy, trying to focus on the needs of my friends and colleagues and meet them where they need to be met.

This isn’t to say that it’s to the exclusion of my own needs, and I am blessed to have many friends who give back many-fold what they receive.

Higher education is going to change as much in the next decade as newspapers did in the last one.

But that’s your exercise for today, your daily meditation, if you’d like: pay attention to how your day goes and try to tally up the amount of time, effort and energy you put into asking for things you want versus the amount you put forth to help other people, meet their needs and try to make the world — or even just your tiny little corner of it — a better place.

I posit that the results will surprise you and leave you thinking about whether you’ve found the balance you need to be a happy member of society, and to be a contented part of your own village.

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, Rhonda Byrne
