Summer Success Series: “… it’s because you THINK that way!”

The Summer Success Camp Team and I had a really good one last night.    This was the HOT question:

“Why do you make what you make?”

As in, if you earn $50,000/year – why do you earn $50,000/year?    If you earn, $75,000 – 100,000/year — why?

The burning answer that nobody enjoyed:  “Because you THINK like a person who earns $50,000, $75,000, or $100,000/year!”

The follow-on question was even less fun:  “Why aren’t you a millionaire?”

The less delightful answer:

“Because YOU DON’T THINK LIKE A MILLIONAIRE!”

After letting the team stew and steam on this for a minute, we dug into the deeper explanation.

All of us are where we are because of our THOUGHTS — the way we THINK.  Most of us never realize it, but there is a direct link between the way that we think and the results we get.   It goes like this:

Your THOUGHTS — what you think about all the time — create your BELIEFS.

Your BELIEFS — what you think you KNOW to be True or Not True — determine your ACTIONS.

Your ACTIONS — what you DO or DON’T DO, WILL DO or WON’T DO — create your RESULTS — or lack of RESULTS — which, of course, are also …. RESULTS!

Your RESULTS — are what YOU GET or, you guessed it, DON’T GET!

We often ask the question,

“How did I get to this place?”

Now it’s time to realize the cause … it was your thinking.   And if you sit quietly and reflect honestly over the all the decisions you made (or didn’t make) on the path to your current situation, you’ll realize that it was your fundamental THINKING that lead you to your current results — good or bad.

Most people don’t want to believe this when the current result is a bad one.  They’d like to believe that there are other people and circumstances to blame.  I used to be that way too.   Accepting ultimate responsibility for a lack of results or a bad situation was a tough pill to swallow initially.

But I’ve come to love it this way.  Why?

Well, just think — if it’s SOMEONE ELSE’S fault, then you have to wait on THEM to fix it.   That means YOU are HELPLESS to effect a change in your situation.  And that pretty much makes you a VICTIM.

But if it’s YOUR fault … YOUR ultimate responsibility, then YOU can fix it.  You don’t have to wait on anyone.   The POWER to create change, and the ability to determine WHEN change will begin, rests entirely with YOU!

Now do you see why I like it this way?

So how do you create change?

First, realize that it’s not a Linear equation.   It’s actually a Cycle.  Like this:

This is very important to understand.   Since it’s a cycle, it REINFORCES itself.

Your THOUGHTS determine what you BELIEVE.

What you BELIEVE determines your ACTIONS — what you DO, DON’T DO, WILL DO, & WON’T DO.

Your ACTIONS create your RESULTS — what you GET or DON’T GET.

And your RESULTS either CONFIRM or INVALIDATE your THOUGHTS which determines whether you get more of what you been getting or make changes.

Since it all springs from THOUGHTS, the key is you have to Take Control and Change the way you THINK.

Let’s face it, when it comes to our THINKING, there’s not one of us who couldn’t use an upgrade.

And like I challenged the group, if you THINK BETTER, you’ll get BETTER RESULTS.

If you THINK BIGGER, you’ll also get BIGGER RESULTS.

Why are Millionaires millionaires?  Because they THINK like Millionaires.   Think like a Millionaire and you’ll start to get millionaire results.

So how do you get BIGGER, BETTER THINKING?

PROGRAMMING!

Programming is WHY WE THINK WHAT WE THINK.    We all got our initial programming from our parents, school, church, the books we read, the shows we watched, the movies we’ve seen.

It’s actually part of the cycle … like this:

So now that you’re an adult, the solution is simple:

Take Control of Your Programming

Wanna be a Millionaire?  Get some Millionaire programming.   There are tons of books, cds, and dvds out there by Napoleon Hill, T.Harv Eker, Brian Tracy and others that will enlighten you and help you learn new thoughts and change your beliefs.

Wanna be Successful? Get Success Programming!   Wanna be a better husband, wife, parent, friend, employee, gardener, whatever?  UPGRADE YOUR PROGRAMMING.

Upgrade your PROGRAMMING and you UPGRADE YOUR THOUGHTS.

UPGRADE your THOUGHTS and you CHANGE YOUR BELIEFS.

CHANGE your BELIEFS and YOU WILL TAKE DIFFERENT ACTIONS — you’ll have a NEW set of DOs, DON’Ts, WILLs, and WON’Ts.

Take different ACTIONS and YOU’LL GET BETTER RESULTS.

And when they ask you why you get what you get, you can tell them ….

… it’s because I THINK this way!

T.Gray

=====================================

Whew!  That was a lot!   But EXTRAORDINARY RESULTS REQUIRE EXTRAORDINARY ACTIONS … so this whole “Upgrade Journey” is both necessary and worth it!

As you grow and change, you’ll want an outlet for all of your newly developed positive energy.   You’ll want something where your results can truly be commensurate with your Thinking and Actions.

I’ve found such a thing.   We’re having fun.  We’re growing.   We’re making a difference in people’s lives.   And we’re making money.

Might be for you.  Might not be.   Take a look anyway.

Summer Success Series: Failure Isn’t Final!

Missed me?  Hope you enjoyed your 4th of July weekend!  Let’s jump back into our Summer Success Series with a very important topic … FAILURE!

A friend of mine who’s considering getting involved with my networking business asked me a question this weekend,

“What does the average person make in your business?”

And he was shocked by my answer …. “NOTHING!”

I explained that Average People come into the business with Average People Habits and Average People Work Ethic and Average People Dedication.   This makes them do Average People Things — in spite of the fact that they’re receiving direction from Above Average coaches.

So as soon as they experience a “failure” — a setback, someone says no — or worse, gives them a hard time — what do they do?  They Quit!

Unfortunately, this is true on a widespread basis.   For the masses, Failure is indeed Final.    They’ll step out and give their own achievement one half-hearted try, experience failure, and pull back into their shell like a turtle.

Don’t wanna be “Average”?   Know in your heart and soul that you’ve got GREATNESS welling up inside you?   Ready to break out and truly be ALL that you can be?

Here are some quick words of wisdom:

‘Successful Millionaires have had on average 10 Failed Businesses on their way to Ultimate Success…’ — Rich Dad  (Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad)

Ok, so you don’t actually have to fail 10 times.    You just have to be willing to.  You can’t be willing to succeed ONLY IF IT’S EASY!   You’ve gotta be willing to walk the tough road.   Like a woman who wants to joy of motherhood, you have to be willing to go through 9 months of pregnancy!  After all …

“…throughout human history, The Promised Land has ALWAYS been on the OTHER side of the Wilderness!” — Richard Flint

There’s no Success without Struggle, people.   It’s part of what makes the success SWEET!   You won’t win ALL of the battles on the way to your ultimate victory.   But as long as you keep getting back up, you have another shot at the BIG WIN!

If you follow me on Facebook, you saw this yesterday…

“Greatness lives on the edge of Destruction.” — Will Smith, on Oprah

Exactly, Will!   There’s no Reward without the Risk! You’ve gotta put it out there — put yourself out there — in order to achieve the reward worth having!

The late great, Jim Rohn, cracks me up when he says if you run down an empty football field and cross the goal line, THAT’S NOT A TOUCHDOWN! Like Jim says, “You’ve gotta have the 300 Pounders” trying to squash you in order for it to mean something!

It’s only when you’ve put it all out there … stepped out of your comfort zone … risked it all … and stayed in the game despite failures … that you can score life’s biggest victories!

So if you’ve scraped your knees and been knocked down on the battlefield of life …

… GET UP! 

Failure isn’t Final unless you decide that it is.

You’ve got Greatness in you!  Keep pressing on toward your dream and let’s realize that Greatness together!

5-Month Update: It’s been 5 months since we started our new business and it’s turned out to be everything we expected and more.   We’ve got all sorts of people winning at different levels.   Like my friend, Junelle — a 79-year old grandma in Farm Country, Texas — who’s earned $10,000+ in her first 4 months.

Time to Laugh: Dog For Sale!

How about a walk on the lighter side of life today…

A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house:

‘Talking Dog for Sale’

He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

‘You talk?’ he asks.

‘Yep,’ the Lab replies.

After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’

The Lab looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young..

I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.

In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.’

‘I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running…

But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down.

I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.
I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.’

‘I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

‘Ten dollars,’ the guy says.

‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’

‘Because he’s a liar. He never did any of that stuff.

Made you laugh!

Summer Success Series: Do The Work!

The top 2% work all day as if everyone was watching

— even when no one is watching!

Remember the children’s story of the little red hen who was going to bake a cake.  She went to all the other farm animals to see who would help her  — but everyone conveniently had something else to do.   But when the cake was ready — and they could smell the results — everyone wanted to eat some.

Isn’t it sad that most of us are like that?  We want the reward — but without the work?

And that’s the reason so many live average lives with average results.   And never achieve the greatness that is within them.

They simply fail to do the work.

Just like the farm animals in the story, they look busy.   But they don’t know the difference between “activity” and “productivity”.

In my industry of network marketing, EVERYONE CAN SUCCEED.   It’s the only truly level playing field I know of in business.   But sadly EVERYONE WON’T.  What’s the difference maker?  The determining factor?  DOING THE WORK!

So many are confused.  They behave as if they thought is was “Not-work marketing” instead of “Net-work marketing”.   They get in.  Pay their money.  Get their products/services.   Make one or two phone calls.    And go watch tv.   Then they start watching the mailbox for their million dollar check.

They want Success BEFORE Work!   And you’ve heard it already, but the only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary!

Just like anything else, there’s work involved.   The work may be simpler, done from home, and get easier over time due to duplication — but it’s work, nonetheless.  And it needs to be done.   The equation must be satisfied.

Those that do the work — pay their dues — finish first and finish BIG.    They pay the price for success in full and upfront.  It’s the only way.

This applies in every industry.   You’ve gotta do the work.    And you have to do it well.

Whether you work for someone else, yourself, or both, you need to answer this question, “What kind of worker are you?”

Are you self-motivated, self-directed and driven?   Then you’ll go to the top for sure.

Do you need constant prodding, supervision, and reminders?  Until you make the decision to change this, you will put on a mediocre chase for success.

Opportunity comes dressed in work clothes.

This simply means that in order for you to realize your dreams and goals — and take your family to the next level — you’re gonna have to do the work.

Do you REALLY want Success?

Remember drag queen / pop star,  RuPaul.   Because he said it best,

“You Better Work!”

Summer Success Series: What Are You Focused On

There are a lot of “Stuck” people out there.

We’re stuck because we’re depressed, in despair, hopeless, paralyzed by fear or failure …. just stuck!

Today’s walk with the mosquitoes and talk with my team was enlightening.   I had something totally different planned to share with them but was led to talk about this topic of focus.  When we were done, and I pushed play on my iPod, what do you know — more about being stuck and what you focus on.

So let’s talk about how you get “Un-Stuck”.

It all has to do with what you’re focused on.   We have a saying,

“What You Focus On EXPANDS!”

How true!   Whatever you fixate on … whatever you give your energy, time, and emotion to … GETS BIGGER!

Unfortunately, most people focus on — fixate on — their problems.   So they get bigger and Bigger and BIGGER until they consume and paralyze them.   Here’s what’s worse:

“What You Focus On MULTIPLIES!”

What?!   Seriously.   It’s all about Attraction.   Whatever your dominant thoughts are, YOU GET MORE OF!  We hate to admit it, but it’s true.  One of the reasons my first marriage ended in divorce is because we spent all of our time focused on Not Getting Divorced.   That made Divorce our predominant thought and that’s what we got — Divorced!   Guess we should have focused our energy on Staying Married, huh?  Or even better Marital Happiness and Fulfillment.    Now THAT would’ve been fixating on the right thing!

I became a Top 10 Money Earner in my last company and reached one of the highest ranks possible.   And I did it in record time.   People would ask me all the time, “how did you do it?”   The Answer:

“I thought about it ALL of the time!”

My predominant and daily thought — even in the midst of all sorts of problems and turmoil — was always achieving that level of success and how it would change my life for the better.  Focusing on that goal worked.   I’m doing it again right now!

I was watching Ripley’s Believe it Or Not and this guy set a record for walking across two buildings on this piece of nylon fabric.   (YES, HE’S CRAZY!!)  But he was interesting to watch.  The fabric was stretched between a window of one building and a window of the other.   From the time the guy started walking the line, his eyes were laser focused on the goal — the other window.   Just think when he took the first step, the target window on the other building was small — but with each step it got Bigger – until it was BIG enough for him to step through in accomplishment!

It’s just like that for YOUR goals, dreams, desires.

We could go on and on about this focus thing.   I just hope you get it and use it to empower yourself because it’s so easy to fixate on the bad stuff of life.   Here’s what blew me away on my iPod this morning:

As many good things happen on the worst day of your life as on the best day of your life. It’s all what you choose to look at.

Wow!

The key to getting “Un-Stuck”? Change your focus!  Remember:

“Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off of the goal!”

So be like the crazy guy on the tightrope — DON’T LOOK DOWN!  Focus on the goal — the window — the window of opportunity that is wide open before you and getting BIGGER with every step you take toward it!

This Summer, let’s focus on taking our personal development and achievement to another level.   Success is yours for the taking.   Just keep your eyes on the prize and before you know it, you’ll be right up on it.

Here to help,

T.Gray

Winning: What’s it Take? – CONSISTENCY!

“The soft drops of rain pierce the hard Marble, many strokes overthrow the tallest oak.”

— John Lyly, Writer & Poet

Too many people underestimate the power of Consistency.   They get started on a diet, a workout program, or even a business — put a lot of energy into the beginning — and totally fall off a day or two, a week or two, a month or two later.   And it kills ’em.

Especially in building your network marketing business.   You’re most fired up at the start.   And those early calls to your friends, family, associates — those early seeds sown — are the beginning of your momentum.    Sometimes it doesn’t catch fire quickly.  But you’re still sowing seeds.   And what the top earners know is this — if you stay with it, you’ll reap the harvest that consistency brings.

Every time you quit your business … every time you “put it on hold”, “take a break”, or say, “I’ll just pick it up again next month”… you give it all back.  All of the momentum that you were building up towards.   All of the seeds that were just getting ready to pop.   You give it all back and put yourself on zero again.

And that’s so frustrating to people.   Starting over is like surgery without anesthesia.   It takes so much more effort than staying with it.   It would be so much better to just stay with it and do a little bit each day, than to put it down and do nothing at all for a season.

Remember, ‘the race does not belong to the swift — but to the one that endures to the end’.

So Consistency is the key.   How do you get consistent?

  1. Make a Decision — And commit to the outcome.
  2. Keep Your Eye on the Prize!  — It’ll will keep you moving forward.
  3. Have a Plan — Get with your coach to plan — even schedule — your activities.
  4. Remember the Pain — Don’t forget how painful starting over from zero is.  Then you won’t put yourself through that.

After all, much water wears the marble.    Drip water on the same spot of the same marble stone day after day, year after year, and it WILL wear a hole in the stone.  Why? Consistent pressure.

Sow seeds in your business day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and you WILL realize your dreams!

Having the right coach and the right support team can help you develop the consistency that will take you to the promised land.  If you’re looking for that kind of a support — combined with the right opportunity —  contact me immediately.   I’ve been looking over the past 2 years, and I finally found a support team that can help you be consistent and keep your car on the track!   And now I’ve teamed up with some of the industry’s most successful leaders to help mentor busy professionals in the consistent activities that will produce a solid income stream from their home-based business.
