Be Inspired to Succeed by Failing

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

I believe everything we need to succeed is inside us as children, but it gets slowly pushed out of us as we grow older. By the time we’re teenagers we’ve forgotten these lessons or been forced to bury them. And if you are like me, deep inside you don’t feel any different than you did at age ten or twelve, well, except that you likely don’t play baseball anymore and you probably haven’t done a somersault in years. (I am not suggesting you start.)

What I am saying is that you get back a few of those great qualities you had as a kid that kept your mind open to possibility and made life fun, interesting, and full of hope. Here’s how:

Learn to enjoy failure. Everything you did as a kid requires trying and failing. Climbing a tree, riding a bike or tying your shoes all forced you to fumble and fail. But you did not care. Mistakes were just part of the process. You had no embarrassment or shame – only a desire to go faster to learn and master all of the exciting things that were ahead of you. Ridding yourself from fear of failure means you let go of what other people think about you. The obsession with perfection, fearing mistakes and failure ruins opportunities and destroys your potential. Oh and another thing, failures teach you valuable lessons just like they did when you were young. Ever burn your hand on a hot stove? Check, I did.

Start asking. We asked questions all the time because we were curious. As adults we have let go of that great skill. Instead, we assume what people are thinking, what they will do and how they will answer our question. We assume they won’t buy, they won’t help, or that they are not interested. Now that may be true, but how do you know for sure? Rejection is all around. But avoiding rejection from others means you reject yourself first! Give other people the opportunity to say no and don’t make assumptions.

Don’t take no for an answer. Okay, I am not suggesting you become a spoiled brat. But we need to remember the tenacity we had as kids. One ‘no’ from someone was the opening of the conversation. It was the starting place to getting to where we wanted to go. We got creative and bargained, learning how to persuade and convince – even if it was just for money to buy a candy bar. It was a great skill! So don’t take that ‘no’ so easily and remember that it is often the beginning of a relationship and often ends in a yes if we are patient and positively persistent.

The hope and possibility you had as a kid can be found but you need to tap back into these traits to do it. They are the things that will remind you of the person that you were and then get to you to become the person you were always meant to be and live the life that you dreamed about.

"You create your life through the inner power of your being, whose source is within you and yet beyond the selves that you know. Use those creative abilities with understanding abandon. Honour yourselves and move through the godliness of your being." Jane Robert

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

Today’s Inspiration

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

One of my favorite figures from history is President Theodore Roosevelt. He lived an amazing life. He accomplished so many big things – he built the Panama Canal, won a Nobel Peace Prize, started America’s national parks system.

But he received a great deal of criticism during his lifetime, exactly because he dared to do big things. After his presidency, he gave a speech in response to all of those who had been hollering and sniping at him through the years. In it, he said that "it is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena."

I find myself thinking a lot about what President Roosevelt said. I think a great deal about battling in arenas. We live in a world that is in many ways broken and scarred – a broken, weary world that loves to kill our dreams, to strangle them to death before we have a chance to fully nurture and embrace them. We live in world vehemently hostile to hope.

Theodore knew this well. He pointed to the critic outside of the arena, and we must confront him as well. Choose to live your life at full volume, with strength and joy and passion, and you will surely confront those who will try to tear you Critapart. The fight in this arena will be harsh and difficult. Living an inspired and inspirational life is often difficult and unglamorous, completely devoid of glitz and pomp. The road is painfully perilous and uneven, and it will take a long, long time before our dreams will be achieved.

So why fight? Why step into the arena at all?

Because, as President Roosevelt said in that same speech, our place is not with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. We leap into the arena despite the critics and the doubts and the difficulties. We act in defiance of them. And that act alone is the beginning of victory.

Jump into the arena! There is room enough for you to the left and to the right. Your place has never been, your place will never be with those cold and timid souls who stand frozen in fear just outside the arena’s edge.

The opening bell has sounded. Climb into the arena, set your legs, straighten your back and keep your head and your hands held high – held high against Doubt, held high against Criticism, held high against that small voice inside you, begging you to give up and get out. Ignore it. Crush down your fear and doubts. Endure in this arena. Lean on those who love you when you begin to falter. Keep fighting until Victory is won and your dreams are achieved.

The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena. The joy belongs to the one who is actually in the arena. True Life belongs to the one who is actually in the arena. So get in, and let’s go.

You’re always One Choice away from changing your life by Mac Anderson

Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses". – Marilyn vos Savant "Change is inevitable, growth is intentional." – Glenda Cloud

 

What You See is What Will Be

what-you-seeThere was a time back, long ago, when knowing each other’s deficits was important. In fact it was critical to our survival.

But today we live in a time when our environment can literally make up for any of our shortcomings. We have evolved past the need to link deficiencies with survival.

Unfortunately, our instincts have not.

Despite overwhelming evidence—the blind man with incredible hearing, the deaf woman highly attuned to body language, the dyslexic student with powerful memorization—society is too accustomed to seeing the world in terms of deficits and exceptions. And so are we. In trying to improve, we naturally default to identifying and focusing on our weaknesses, our supposed deficiencies, in hopes that we can become better by figuring them out. Millions of books, courses, self-help seminars, gadgets and apps have been created to “level-up” our weaknesses. Even case studies have been written to evangelize the benefits of these tactics. But beware, because there’s an inherent danger in focusing on your deficiencies. And don’t take my word for it.

The Danger of Focusing on Deficiencies

Oprah Winfrey, a towering entrepreneur for the ages, once said: “What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.”

So what are we doing by focusing on our deficits? We’re creating more of them. We’re enhancing them. We’re actively expanding the power of our deficits to limit our capabilities.

It has been said that each of us can do at least one thing better than ten thousand other people. That should be encouraging news, right? But here’s the problem: most of us have no idea what that one thing is. And, a big part of the reason we don’t know is because the systems are set up to help us overcome weakness, not become great with our strengths.

Embrace the World Through Your Strengths

Think about it. As a child, when you came home from school with your report card, what was the response if you had five A’s and one D? You were told to go work harder and do better in the subject where you struggled. Somehow that gets into our DNA and many of us go through life fixing the D instead of celebrating the A’s. But successful people have figured out that no amount of work will make them great at everything, and so they focus on the one thing they can do that will produce greatness.

To embrace and realize your full potential, you need to choose to see the world and yourself differently. Rather than limits, see opportunities in the exceptions. Rather than seeing deficiencies that must be fixed, see the attributes that must be enhanced. This is what makes people exceptional. This is what unlocks the limitless possibilities set out before you.

Personal Development equals Growth and Success

 

Rewards are what you deserve for all the things you have done, will do and are grateful for, no matter what, the same can be said for the more you do for others is an even greater reward.” Gray Lawrence

 

 

Think PositivePersonal development is sometimes referred to as self-development or personal growth, and it traditionally covers a broad set of areas to improve. It is not however something that you gain from formal education, though the process of gathering knowledge is fundamental to growth. Personal development is a path that you take to better your family situation, career, spirituality, emotional health, and every other aspect of your life. It is the investment into improving yourself. Essentially, It is about making conscious decisions about everything that you do, the way that you think, and the way that you react to situations. For some, It is also a matter of moving beyond past failures and misfortune to see what is possible in the future.

Development process

Personal development can help you obtain everything that you always dreamed of, and more, with the simple application of a few simple mind-sets and tools. Our awareness is a direct result from our development. And personally, the need for further growth and development is paramount for your health physically, mentally and emotionally through to all your relationships. For those who need additional help moving past obstacles and making those changes, a counsellor or personal development coach can also be of great worth. One of the most important steps toward development is to set obtainable goals.

Setting Goals

Determination Desire Goals etcFinding resources to make changes, move past obstacles, set goals, and find happiness is not always easy. Search for quotes stories, tips and ideas to fuel your goals. The key is to consciously act toward goals that will cause you to grow. You must then determine which values, goals and principles you will set up to guide your actions. For me I choose to remove all the bad programming that has been installed on my "hard drive" (if you will) and install more productive and positive programming to help me move closer to my goals in life. You can also learn how to set and implement realistic goals, develop an increased level of self-esteem and self-confidence.

"If you aren’t going all the way, why go at all?" Joe Namath

Keys to Growth

I’ve found out more about myself by committing myself to personal growth, rather than trying to find myself first and then start developing. I also found that my personal growth plan is a useful tool that keeps me focused. Develop your personal growth plan, make it a visual poster and hang it up where you can see it daily. Success in an undertaking leads one to gaining more pursuit and a much greater yearning to learn, resulting in growth of motivation directing towards the goal that you have set.

Self Development is a journey not a destination.

"I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness". Personal development is not about reaching a state of perfection; it’s about enjoying the process. It is about living your life while making conscious decisions on a daily basis about everything you do. Make no mistake about it; personal development is a lifelong pursuit.

Successful Networker Natural Selling First Lesson

Do not worry at all about negative thoughts, and do not try to control them. All you have to do is begin to think good thoughts each day. Plant as many good thoughts as you can in each day. As you begin to think good thoughts you will attract more and more good thoughts, and eventually the good thoughts will wipe out the negative thoughts altogether.

May the joy be with you,

I am not what happend to me I am what I chose to become Introduction and Lesson 1.

Rejection, Objections and  What Causes them

Do You Make This Mistake When Talking With Potential Clients Or Partners?

 

The intention and objective of this course to help you to discover 2 things;

1. Why conventional sales thinking, techniques and systems;

* Are ineffective for most Network Marketers and Direct Sales People

* Actually cause the objections and rejection Network Marketers would prefer not to have.

* Is the reason for the high team and customer attrition rate.

2. How you can do something different or reverse this if you’re already using techniques and achieve the results for you and your team by adopting a different approach called the Natural Selling Approach.

There are 7 lessons over the coming weeks, you will receive a lesson and also some short exercises to illustrate the lesson. You’re encouraged you to complete those exercises. They will help you "absorb and understand" the ideas and concepts that are written here.

Negative emotions are like unwelcome guestsLesson #1

The Way You Think and Communicate Will Determine The Way People Respond To You

Ask yourself this. What is the greatest fear you might have that could hold you back from talking with people about your income opportunity or products?

If you are like most it will be the fear of rejection and objections and the anxiety that comes with that.

Two Types of Rejection

There are two types of rejection;

1. The flat in your face "Not interested" or "You must be joking" type of rejection; and

2. The type where someone has looked at your solution and finds it doesn’t really fit what they need.

The second one can be disappointing but it doesn’t necessarily feel personal. So this training program is about item 1 and understanding the cause of rejection and how to eliminate it by getting rid of the cause and replacing it with something entirely different.

The Cause of Rejection

Have you considered that if you do have feelings of anxiety about talking with people about your Income Opportunity and/or Products…it could be the way you have chosen to communicate, or think you have to communicate, that is causing this?

Life is full of choices and what you choose to think, say or do, will reflect how other people will think, say or do in response to you.

Let’s start by exploring closely the underlying causes of rejection and objections.

This is a better approach than just launching off by telling you what you should do. If we did this, then would you agree that this training approach would not be any different than all the standard ones that tell you what to do using techniques and systems without any explanation as to why?

Besides, if you understand the cause of a problem first, you’re now in a better position to think and do something different that will eliminate it.

2 key things to grasp:

What you do right now will have accumulated an effect on tomorrow1. People do things for their reasons not yours. They are motivated by their personal interest and own subjective reasons.

You may have heard this referred to as the "What’s In It For Me?"  syndrome

2. Most people resist being "told" what to do (even if they ask you!) or being persuaded to do things, and generally like to learn and understand before taking action on changing anything.

So it’s important when you hear someone express a problem or need, want or desire, such as a need for money or good health, that you’re not tempted to launch in with a "fire hose"

presentation before talking about and discovering why they want it and the history behind how they came to be in these situations.

There is no such thing as a "one size fits all" presentation that basically "tells" a person what our solutions are and what they can do for them.

We are all unique in how we see, hear and feel about things. If you take the one size fits all view, (usually your view) then rejection and objections is usually the natural consequence of that.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter much what you think about your solutions and whether they are going to work for someone. What’s important is what the other person thinks.

So if you start your conversations by overpowering people and coming up with your solutions too early, most people will withdraw. Then you have to resort to using conventional selling techniques of objection handling, closing and mental strategies to overcome the rejection you created in the first place! It also makes selling a "numbers game" of ploughing through as many people as you can that requires a great deal of effort and time.

People suffer because they  are caught in their views release them and suffer no moreSo it’s important to help people surface what they know and don’t know and what they want by allowing them to come to their own conclusions.

Observe your own experiences. Have you ever been in a situation where you asked someone for a solution to a problem and they started with the words, "You know what you should do…?" Did you feel resentful or annoyed, even though you asked for help?

If you did, it’s probably because you didn’t feel involved and your own uniqueness and knowledge was not being acknowledged.

It’s the same for most people.

People like to do things for their reasons not yours!

The Natural Law of Giving

The Law of Giving works like this. What you give is what you get.

Other people’s actions and words are a reflection of your actions and words.

It’s like a smile. If you smile at someone they will usually smile back.

This is the Law of Giving working for you.

The key to using the Law of Attraction is within your four powers: Your thoughts, emotions, visualizations and actions." Frank Mangano

However, this natural law can work against you if you put pressure on others by telling, presenting or persuading people to do things you want them to do. Result? Most people will tell you back! How? By one or more of three

ways:

1. Rejection

2. Objections

3. Passive Aggression. (When people say they will do something and don’t!) This is also called "Buyers Remorse".

In selling, if you want the Law of Giving to work for you and have people listen to you and your solutions, then listen with the intent to understand them first.

Lesson two is looking at how you can do this and build your team and customers with effortless ease based on solid principles and methods that work… all the time!

Exercises

1. Reflect on how you feel when a salesperson, charity solicitor or telemarketer tries to get you to do something.

2. Think about your reaction when you see an advertisement on TV or in print. If you paid attention to it, why is that?

Doing these exercises will help you understand and use the material in the following lessons.
