Successful Networker to finish Lazy?

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  Doug Fireball

RE: The virtue of laziness

Picture18How often is it that you hear business legends being described as "lazy?"
Isn’t that the exact opposite of what it’s supposed to mean to be an entrepreneur?
Are entrepreneurs supposed to burn the midnight oil?, do whatever it takes to succeed, jump headfirst into the grime and the grit and (through sheer will power) overcome their challenges?

That makes for a good story, I suppose, but in reality, it’s darn tiring. And hardly sustainable without other things blowing up.
The fact is, working hard is simply too easy. It’s what you do when you can’t think of something better to do. The work is always there. And being busy has this siren like quality of making you feel like you’re actually valuable. But the bar is low to qualify for busy. Anyone with a heartbeat qualifies.

That’s why so many business people are so busy and have so little to show for it. They’ve gotten caught up in the busy trap and decided to spend their time doing the work because it was right in front of them.

Business PlanYour time, focus and attention are about the most valuable assets you have in this world. So what happens if you upgrade the qualifications required before you commit any of those resources?
Is there virtue in being lazy? I think it depends on what you mean by lazy. Pick the right kind of "lazy" and it may very well be the smartest decision you ever make.  It seems like committing to "lazy" was the best thing they ever did.

Success never asks to be in your life, it is asking if you are worthy for it to show up in your life

 It matters not that you wish to work or not, by being lazy shows you never intended too!  This leads to the future you deserve yet  you punish those whom make life worth while, yet if not for  lazy the rest of us would not stand out!!!

I for one believe in what I have worked for now I work even harder for more via the best business style in the world..The world of “Network Marketing”  if you have no idea of this read the book   Then become unlazy with the the following links Goals are kind of like children, you pay attention to them, then they evolve into something powerful, if you do not they evolve into something pitiful offered

The better you are at connecting with people, the better the quality of your life.

Connectivity is a fundamental life skill and yet, up until now little or no training has been available to us. iMA is an exciting new universal language, designed to maximise connectivity i.e. mutual liking, trust, understanding and respect.

Every one in the world speaks one of four iMA dialects, putting her/him on the same wavelength as 25% of the world’s population. The majority of people, many of whom are important to your success, are on a different wavelength than you.

The universal language of iMA is a simple way of observing and understanding the differences in people, then connecting with them on their wavelength. When this happens communication, trust, understanding, co-operation and sales go up, and stress and tension go down.

What colour are you? Answer the iMA Questionnaire to find out now.

Successful Networker Selflessness

60 Selfless Ways to Pay It Forward


60 Selfless Ways to Share With the World

Even after all this time,
the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me!”
Look what happens with a love like that,
it lights up the whole sky.

Selflessness is the sincere concern for the well being of others.  It’s about love.  It’s about compassion.  It’s about kindness and faith.  It’s about making a difference in the world.  Sure, you are only one, but you are one.  You cannot do everything, but you can do something.  Smile and enjoy the fact that you have the ability to make a difference – one you’ll likely remember forever.

So go ahead and make the words, “How can I help?” part of your everyday vocabulary.  Start today; choose one of these 60 selfless ways to pay it forward.

  1. Hold the door open for the person behind you.
  2. Introduce yourself.  Make new colleagues, classmates, etc. feel welcome.
  3. Clean out all your old clothes and donate them to someone in need.  Your old is someone else’s new.
  4. Write a positive Yelp review about a local business you like.
  5. Listen intently to people’s stories without trying to fix everything.
  6. Donate blood.  One pint of blood can save up to three lives.  Locate your nearest blood drive.
  7. Volunteer at a hospital, homeless shelter, nursing home, etc.  Get outside of yourself and help others.  Check out Volunteer Match.
  8. Buy house warming gifts for new neighbours.
  9. Inspire others online.
  10. Share your umbrella with a stranger on a rainy day.
  11. Check up on someone who looks lonely.
  12. Let someone with only a few items cut you in line at the grocery store.
  13. Spread good news.
  14. Replace what you’ve used.  For example, fill up the copier or printer with paper after you’re done using it or start a fresh batch of coffee.
  15. Give words of encouragement to someone about their dreams, no matter how big or small they are.
  16. Stop and buy a drink from a kid’s lemonade stand.
  17. Help someone get your parking space in a crowded parking lot when you’re leaving.
  18. Babysit for couples or single parents who don’t get out much so they can have some alone time.
  19. Look for ways to save a few extra bucks a month and then donate it to a good cause or charity.
  20. Shop at your local charity thrift store.  The money you spend there helps others.
  21. Help someone get active.  There’s a co-worker or acquaintance in your life who wants to get healthy, but needs a helping hand.  Offer to go walking or running together or join a gym together.  Check out your local Active activities.
  22. Spend a few clicks of your time at Free Rice.
  23. If someone you love really likes something (a meal, a favour, etc.) give it to them when they least expect it.
  24. Make a difference in the life of a child. Give them your time and undivided attention.  Read Raising Kids Who Will Make a Difference.
  25. If you shop online, make your purchase through Give Back America.
  26. Pay for the person in line behind you.
  27. Drop off your old eye glasses at your local Lens Crafters as a donation to the One Sight program.
  28. Create a care package and send it to an active duty military unit.
  29. Redirect gifts.  Instead of having people give you birthday and holiday gifts, ask them to donate gifts or money to a good cause.
  30. The next time you see someone pulled over with a flat tire, or in need of assistance, stop and ask how you can help.  Read How to Be an Everyday Philanthropist.
  31. Become a mentor or tutor to someone in need.
  32. Help the weary shopper in front of you who needs that extra two or three cents to avoid breaking a 20-dollar bill.
  33. Come to the rescue.  If you realize someone is sick, bring them some hot tea, soup, etc.
  34. Be a courteous driver.  Let people merge in front of you.
  35. Put some change in an expired parking meter (where its legal).
  36. Offer your seat to someone when there aren’t any left.
  37. Listen to someone’s pain and help them find a path through it.
  38. Hug a friend.  Let them know how important they are.
  39. Think twice before you throw something away.  As Jack Johnson once said, “Reduce, reuse, and recycle.”
  40. Help an entrepreneur with a Kiva donation.
  41. Bake cookies or brownies and share with a neighbour or colleagues.
  42. If you have a good book you’ve read that’s just sitting around on a book shelf, give it away to a friend.

  53. Compliment someone who deserves it.
  54. If there’s been an accident or a potentially hazardous situation presents itself on the road, report it to the local authorities.  Your phone call could save a life.
  55. Collect and donate prom dresses for underprivileged youth.  Check out the Princess Project.
  56. When you’re getting fast food, buy an extra meal for a homeless person.
  57. Stand up for someone.  Lend your voice. Often the powerless, the homeless, the neglected in our world need someone to speak up for them.
  58. Take the time to teach someone a skill you know.
  59. Teach others how to make a difference in this world by setting a good example every day.  Read 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life.

Success doesn’t come to you – you go to it. — Marva Collins

Successful Networker Success Equals Work

A positive mind finds a way it can be done. A negative mind looks for all the ways it can’t be done.
Someone once said, “There are no truths; there are only perceptions of truth.” Whether or not you accept this statement, whatever you believe to be true will become your reality. Your subconscious mind will believe anything you tell it — if you repeat the words often and with conviction. When you are faced with a daunting task that you’ve never attempted before, focus on the potential for success, not on the possibilities for failure. Break the job down into smaller elements and tackle each one separately. The only difference between success and failure in any job is your attitude toward it. – Napoleon Hill

“It will never work”

“I don’t agree with the ethics of the company”

“It’s one of those pyramid things”

“What are you doing that for?”

All things a difficult before they are easyI’m sure you’ve heard these, and more, along the way. (I have).  Maybe even from people you care for and trust.  Faced with such a barrage, some people might quit.  Probably because they couldn’t come up with a good enough answer for that last question.

Read on if you would like an answer that makes the obstacles disappear.

All too often, the obstacle blocks a clear line of site of the goal, and like a small child who believes you are not there simply because they have covered their eyes with their hands, the goal disappears.

So we stand in front of the “obstacle”, our goal hidden from view, and quit.

Consider this.  Whatever your political allegiances, it is an undeniable fact that UKIP have an elected member of parliament; their first.  It has taken them 21 years.

Has it been 21 years of constant encouragement, praise and good wishes?

No, they have been continually vilified, bad-mouthed, and ridiculed; called all the names under the sun, plus a few more besides. “Fruitcakes and Loonies” included.

Keep reading if you are curious to know why this is relevant.

So in the face of that, why didn’t they just pack their bags and quit?  Because they have simply ignored their detractors and kept a clear site on the goal, and one that after 21 years and one elected MP still remains some distance away.  For them, their journey continues.

So, love them or hate them, what can we learn?  Well, there have been enough happy, smiley UKIP supporters on our televisions screens in the last few days to suggest that they are more than satisfied with where they are on their journey, so why would they quit?

On the other hand, all the criticism, name-calling and equivalents of “It’s one of those pyramid things” by their opponents have not made the obstacle big enough to obscure the goal. 

Optimism is a crucial choice we make in establishing expectations for ourselves and others as we begin to move forward through adversity.   ~Christopher Novak

This is the good bit….

Does that mean that we have to make our goals so big that we can see them whatever the obstacle that stands before us? 

Does the goal really have to be that big to overwhelm any obstacle?


Just keep it where you can see it.

Or more importantly, keep it where you can feel it.

Goals allow you to change the direction in your favourOnce you can put in your mind how it will really feel to achieve your goal, it will fuel a furnace in your heart that makes obstacles invisible – because they simply cannot fit between you and your goal.

It lives inside you; it is part of you.

You have lit the furnace.  Now you just need to plot your route to your goal.

So remind yourself, why did you get involved in this business?  Do you still want that?  Was it the free time?  The residual income?  Retirement?  More time with the family? …………

Take a moment to ponder that.

Would you like to know how to light that furnace?

Would you like to know how to plot the route?

OK then, here’s what to do.  Follow this link for a video guide and this Link for a guide in "Network Marketing"

Successful people don't feel failure but know it's necessary to growYou will learn how to light the furnace.

You will come away knowing how to plot your exact route to your goal.

You will be that much further along the journey.

How does that make you feel?


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

Successful Networker Be Inspired What Matters Most You are Perfect

Another inspiring story as it is told

clip_image002If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

When I conceive the thoughts of humanity and the humbleness that it inspires, I remember that one’s journey is not limited to definition alone. We are each unique but interconnected within our own vibrational energies. I wish to share that what does not matter are the definitions and/or labels of one’s self.

What I would wish to leave behind as a remembrance to others, my own family and children is not only that of love and what it is to love but that abundance is in everything, every nook, every cranny, and everywhere.

To know that being happy is a matter of choice and how we intrinsically move towards that is to essentially look inward but also, outward. To achieve this profoundly is not to compare oneself to another but to remember the smaller details in life. Start here: That by and of itself, look towards nature and all that it holds.

We have to believe in free will, we have no choice. – Isac Bashevis Singer

What matters most? Simple: You. You do. Within yourself — You’re perfect.

To find peace fundamentally is to look towards the beauty and serenity of the intrinsic out of doors. To remember that in nature the birds do not worry if there will be enough air to fly, the fields do not worry if enough sunshine will be available, the grass does not count how many more blades there are or are they in completion with one another and nor do the animals worry where they will love next.

Humans tend to put much emphasis upon what nature shows us how to do exquisitely. Be nature. The trees do not count their leaves, but humans count our investments and bank accounts often. By trust and by faith does nature do this in symmetry and seemingly by grace alone. Nature does not show worry. It does not show greed. It does not wonder if it is ‘good enough’ or ‘not good enough’.

It simply IS.

By acknowledging that there is greatness and goodness everywhere when it all feels as though it is not, if one were to look and to recognize that Spirit is abounding for us ALL, loving and peaceful, and that no matter, we are being truly being guided, taken care of and cannot truly make a mistake is not only a great faith in Creator, but ourselves and our own Being.

Know this if anything: That we are not ever truly alone, that our pasts are only but haunted houses from whence the ghosts’ spring forth. Remember to move forward is to take a great leap of faith in yourself and have faith of knowing that yes, solace is truly available. Love is all around us, though we hesitate and not see. My core essence is in knowing that Spirit is plenteous.

What I desire to share is to be the person in which you need most in your life. Share and assist in understanding overflowing unity in all concepts. That unity is everywhere. What I share is that there are no errors in life, only choices and expansion. Today’s challenges are tomorrow’s new strengths. The rest is but vibrations to learn from.

What matters most? Simple: You. You do. Within yourself — You’re perfect.
