Changing Lives

We have a Dream, a Dream so big and so inspiring that it’s just a little frightening. Not because of the fear of what might happen but because of the changelives2shear Magnitude of the results. See, we believe in Changing Lives! We believe that we are all summoned  to a higher calling in the service of others. People have become so self-serving and self-centered or somewhat selfish in wanting everything or expecting everything now. Some have lost the need and will to give to others in a way that might change someone’s life. When in reality, humanity is in great need of those willing to give and share without concern for a return on their effort. Giving is the Greatest Gift of all and Changing Lives is the best blessing you can ever experience. Changing Lives Changes Everything.

We have a Dream of helping people out of the struggle that has become everyday life for so many families. We have a Dream to Elevate others to a new sense of Health, Wealth and Happiness. Our dream believes that people can be Happier and live a fuller life if they just become aware of the power of the mind. Just becoming aware that you have the power to decide if you are going to be Happy or sad and learning how to control your thoughts by habits practiced everyday. New science proves that by changing some daily habits and being aware of your thought process can begin to change your level of Happiness and how you view your life. We believe that many people are in Great need of a brighter future and more meaning in their life so they can live that Happier and Fulfilled life we all really want.

We have a Dream of Truly Changing Lives and helping others to be more, do more and experience more out of life. Changing Lives by lifting people up out of the struggle so many people are living. The struggle of paying the bills and putting food on the table, the struggle of providing for their family and keeping them safe and well fed. Many struggle with health and basic coverage that is now required by law or penalized for not having it. People are in need of better health and nutrition to rise above the challenge of poor diet and fast food that leads to greater health challenges and cost. Families are struggling to make ends meet and keep everyone healthy and happy. We have a Dream to raise people up and help people to earn an extra income, live a healthier life and just be Happy. We believe in Changing Lives!

entrepreneur2We believe that there is a Better Way and we can share ideas and tools that anyone can use to Elevate their life. We believe that people are tired of the everyday life of a J.O.B. that they hate, trading hours for dollars that just barely meet the needs of their family. We believe that gone are the days of “Get a good job and retire in 40 years” to achieve the dream life. We believe that the formula for Happiness is all backwards and Happiness doesn’t come for working your life away to retire at age 65 and then be happy.  Success comes for first being Happy and doing something you Love so that you can retire early in life and have the resources to Enjoy helping others. We believe you are over worked and under paid and most people are Not Happy with what they do and how much they get for it. We believe that we can Change Lives through the Power of Network Marketing, it’s not perfect it’s Just Better.

We spent quite some time looking at all the different Network Marketing companies out there and even joining a few just to try their products and get a vibe of what they were doing and how. After a long search we chose to create our own program because we believe that we are truly on a mission to help people Live with Passion and live a Simple LIFE. We are changing the way people look a LIFE by creating a Passion filled LIFE Full of Purpose. Changing Lives by lifting people up and helping them to create extra income, experience travel and finding greater happiness by helping others. We are Changing Lives by Helping Others to Change Lives by helping others. It’s a Glorious thing!

We have No Greater calling in life than to help others to rise up and live a better life. We can do this through the business of Network Marketing and showing people how to live a Simple Life through it.  We offer solutions to everyday problems and help people to get headed down a path of success and happiness that can truly Change Lives. Our products can elevate your Health and we offer them at very affordable discounted prices. We can elevate your financial situation by helping you start your own business and work for yourself instead of that boss you despise so much. We can elevate your Happiness via better Health and better Wealth. We believe we can help Change Lives with our program and products and helping others do the same.

We have put together so many tools and training to help you get your business started and up and running fast. We don’t have a “get rich quick” planhelp we have a “Here’s how you start and build your business plan”. We know that the only way we will ever succeed is by making sure that you succeed with your new business. This requires a game plan, all the tools you need and a support system that walks you down the path step by step. Your Success can not be left to chance and must be plotted like a road map to your destination. Only by helping others to achieve success do we get to pursue our Dreams of Changing Lives. Ole Zig Ziglar said it best; “You will get All you want out of life, if you just help enough other people get what they want out of life”. What a great quote and inspiration to us all. If you just help others find a “Better Way” then you will begin to change not only their life but you will also change your’s in the process. Changing Lives and Helping Others, just doesn’t get any better than that.

Can You Just Be Present?

 

My how times have changed. We were born in the early 60’s and grew up through the 70’s and 80’s and it was a Glorious time. Came out of highphone school before there ever was an internet and learned to type on an old fashioned typewritter. There were no cell phones, no computers and no internet and somehow we still got by. We used to talk all the time, because there wasn’t anything else to do. It was even a big deal to get your allotted time on the phone. You had to go in the hall because there was only one phone in the house and it hung on the wall with one LONG cord that was always a tangled mess. But we Loved to talk! We always sat and talked about everything or anything, it was a Glorious time.

Then came the internet and computers and suddenly you could communicate without even having to write a letter. Email they called it and that was pretty cool. Gone were the days of encyclopedias and libraries as Google ushered in a new way of finding information. Never forget my first computer, a Super 486, think it had a whole 16 megs of ram and a new thing called a disc drive. I remember my dad saying I wasted my money because no one needed a CDRom? He didn’t even think you needed that stupid thing called a mouse, after all you had direction buttons on the keyboard. LOL, that was funny then and still funny today. Then came the cell phone, that big bag thing that weighed 40 lbs. What a marvelous and wonderful piece of hardware that was. You could place a call from anywhere, and maybe get through, wasn’t many towers back then.

But let’s fast forward to Today! Wow, how things have changed. We went from sitting in the hall on a phone that didn’t go NO where to carrying one around in our pocket. Now you could actually place a call from Almost anywhere. And to my continued amazement Apple bust on the scene with a “Smart Phone” that would actually access the internet, Man that’s COOL! This gave birth to Social Media and instant chats with anyone any time. Now you didn’t even have to run home to see what was in your email or who was trying to chat with you, just pull out your Smart Phone and go to town. Now days  practically EVERYONE sits around with their head buried in their phone or device. And thus the phenomena arises.

SmartPhonePeople have become SO Addicted to their device that people don’t talk with those right in front of them. They sit down for dinner or to visit and no one can take their eyes off the phone, they just sit there and stare at the device. Look around, it’s becoming an epidemic. Even the youth are starting to have neck problems from the bad posture of constantly hanging their head down to focus on the phone. You see couples sitting at restaurants just staring at their phone and not even visiting with each other. You get together with friends and next thing you know no one is talking because they are all just caught up in the latest on Facebook or Instagram instead of being “Present” in your company. Can You Be Present?”

If not then Shame on you. Turn off the damn phone and enjoy the moment you have in the company of a friend or loved ones. Nothing in that phone is even close to being as important as the conversation you could be having but aren’t. Time is SO Precious and we waste SO much of it anyway that when it comes to sitting down, face to face, to be “Present” in the moment don’t waste these precious moments staring into space. How many relationships are destroyed by this technology? I would venture to say A Lot! As a man that has been married for 35 years and still best friends I can tell you that “Talking” is a major component of a relationship. If you are ignoring your significant other because you are more interested in that cute meme on Facebook I can promise you that your are headed for trouble. Take advantage of the time you have together, which usually isn’t that much, and just be Present in the moment and TALK. You will be amazed at how much better you get along when you are visiting, laughing and enjoying each others company.

So, how does this relate to Network Marketing? You knew I would get around to it! Here’s the deal, we Network by having meetings and giving presentations about our opportunity and or products. I can tell you that Nothing gets under my skin faster than someone I am trying to talk about my business with that keeps getting interrupted every five minutes by their phone. And the same goes for us as Professional Network Marketers, if you have someone that went to all the trouble to meet up with you, and hear your presentation about your products or opportunity, and all you can do is keep stopping to see who’s calling or what was that message then you lost the battle already. BE PRESENT when you are in the presence of a prospect. Put the phone down, turn it off if you have to, but give your prospect 100% of your attention. You can not be effective when you are constantly interrupted by your phone.

Same goes for the prospect. The meeting with a prospect is not about how good you are it’s about “Are they Qualified to partner with You in your business?” If they can not even give you 30 or 45 mins uninterrupted then how are they ever going to focus on building a business. When you let a prospect take control of the situation and their phone is more important than you, then you are coming from a position of weakness. You are letting them dictate the terms of the meeting. Never let them have control of the meeting. You are the one interviewing them to see if they are qualified, not the other way around. I know, to some of you this sounds harsh and you think I’m being arrogant, but I’m not. See, I am a Profesbepresentsional Network Marketer that takes my Profession and my Mission Very Seriously. I am not just looking for anyone with a heartbeat to be on my team. I am looking for someone So Hungry they Have to Succeed. I want the one that wants it more than me, the one that pays close attention to everything and hangs on every word you speak. The one that takes notes and ask questions that are relevant to their Success in this business. If someone can’t take put that phone away and Be Present while I put my time and effort into showing them the Best Plan Ever, then I don’t need them and neither do you.

Be Present, pay attention to the moment and listen to what others are saying to you. You might just learn some things that could carry you through to a happier place and time in life. Be Present, because tomorrow might never come and you may have wasted the last chance you had to say what you wanted to say or hear what you wanted to hear. Be PRESENT, Because that’s Respect! Just Be Present! Live today not in your phone but face to face, You’ll Be Glad You Did!

We are Professional Network Marketers that hold the up most Respect for this business and we are looking for others just like us. If you don’t have time, that’s fine cause I don’t either. But if you have the Desire to do Whatever it takes to Succeed and Reach Your Dreams, then I got all the time in the world for you. Let’s have a conversation, face to face, belly to belly to discuss how we might come together and partner up for the ride of a Lifetime with our Simple Dream TEAM. If you would like to know more about us, Who we are and What we do and Why then you can always come visit our personal webpage at DeanAndDena.com to know more. There is info on what we are doing that lets us live the Simple Life that most only wish for And, How it might benefit you to get Serious about what you are doing to Reach Your Dreams and Goals.

Ever Onward! cause that’s how we Roll!

Should You “Plant Your Flag”?

There are a lot of people that are doing “professional” coaching right now and this isplant flag becoming a Big Business around the industry. We believe that coaching is a very important part of your success in Network Marketing and it can make a big difference in your ability to break-through and reach massive success. We all need coaches to help get us moving toward our goals and doing the things that need to be done so our business thrives instead of stalling. There is also a difference in “training” and “coaching” that we see going on in the industry. You can be trained via education and studying in the skills that will put you on the right path, and this is very important. But a Coach can help you take that training and develop a game plan that will put that training to work.

Both are very important because you need the training to learn the business and develop the skills that can help you move forward in Network Marketing and you need  coaching to help you put these skills to work. But there are a lot of people right now that are Focused on coaching and developing their coaching business. They are building products that help their clients achieve more and build their business, no matter what “opportunity” or “program” they are in, and that is their focus. There is nothing wrong with this at all, it has become Big Business in this industry. So here is the question we asked in the title. “Should You Plant Your Flag?” And what we mean by this is; Should you anchor and or promote your business opportunity via your marketing efforts?

Coaching-MentoringMany of the “Coaches” today say that you should never even mention your company or opportunity in your videos or promotions and just focus on serving the masses. Well, that is fine if you just want to be a “coach” and sell your online products to everyone in the business. Some of the biggest names we know and follow in this industry preach this philosophy but mainly because they are trying to sell their online products and coaching series to the masses. They try and serve Everyone in any company thus increasing their audience and sales. This is fine if you are just interested in coaching and promoting your own products and marketing to anyone in any program. Many are preaching the “Attraction Marketing” idea of putting out lots of value via their content and attracting people to them so they become the hunted instead of the hunter. AGAIN, nothing wrong with this if that is what you are trying to accomplish and be a big name coach. Often they say “never mention your company because companies fail and you will loose your business.”, and there is some truth to that as well.

But we choose to “Plant Our Flag” and be a product of the products and company that we believe in. Is this risky to some degree? Absolutely because companies do run into problems, owners get greedy and sometimes companies fail, it’s business. But you can use the same “Attraction Marketing” to attract people to you And your company via the value in your content and promotion of your chosen company. We do this all the time, read down the different post here on our blog and you will see what we mean. Here is the difference, we did our homework and due diligence on the company we have chosen, and we believe they are good people with a great and exclusive product that are interested in disrupting the industry with fair and ethical treatment of the distributors. This has given us a great confidence in who and what we are promoting.

Attraction Marketing is a great way to not only find prospects but also show themattraction-marketing who you are and what you are all about. We promote our company very heavily so that when people hear about this new company and go searching on Google or other search engines, then they Are going to run into our content. People might hear of a new company and have interest in the company or the product BUT, they join with people that they see as leaders or at the least, very active in the company. We put out lots of content that is relative to success in the industry And with our chosen company. We use keywords and many phrases that are picked up by the search engines so that as people come looking Boom, there we are. And we have Planted Our Flag with our company and products so that we can attract people that are interested in our mission to succeed with our company.

So the conversation continues, “Should You Plant Your Flag?” or not. We see both sides of this conversation and we understand why some do and some don’t. If your mission is to become a big time coach to anyone in the business then I guess you should not be tied to just one company and associate your strategy with one brand. But if your mission is to achieve Massive Success in the company you have chosen to work with then branding yourself as a leader in that company does make sense. One of the biggest problems we see in the industry, and with this strategy, is that people often associate with too many different companies at one time and it just confuses prospects on what their real mission is. If you are promoting three different money games, two different ad programs, and several different products and programs then nobody is going to take you serious when you come out and talk about your new company. This is a big problem and way too many people are so scattered that no one can figure out what they are really doing. If you are going to “Plant Your Flag” then by all means, Plant Your Flag and stay focused.

We have planted our flag with Our Home Business program that promotes a Simple LIFE through Networking.  We promote Wealth through one of the most exciting rewards programs ever introduced in Network Marketing. Don’t believe me just search the term “Simple Dream Team” via Google and see who pops up, bet you will find Dean and Dena on page one. That’s just how we planned it.

There is a Massive wave coming in the this opportunity and we are positioning a team of leaders and partners to take advantage of this Massive Growth within this business, and we would Love to have you on our TEAM! This is a Great company with ethical and honest leadership that really cares about the distributors in the field. And we are on a Mission to Elevate the lives of millions of ordinary people all over the world through a True Passion for a Simple LIFE! We have Planted Our Flag with Simple Dream TEAM and believe So Should YOU!

Time to get Real Folks

There is a Great disservice going on in marketing today. You see it All over the internet and spewedits-time-to-get-real by all the self proclaimed guru marketers. I mean it is Truly Everywhere. I know you have heard it too. “Just join my team and you can make Big Money and you don’t have to talk to anyone!” What a crock!

You see people it’s Time to Get REAL Folks! I know they say you never have to talk to anyone, just “automate” your business and you can hit the big time, oh and pay me $997 and I will teach you how.” And what’s worse is people are falling for it left and right. Network Marketing is a business, we have products and we have customers and we have team members. If you are not willing to communicate with people and talk to prospects then you have Very little chance of making it in this business.

Can you imagine telling your children; “Hey little Johnny, to Succeed in life you don’t have to talk with anyone or learn any new life skills just follow my B.S. course and you will go far in life.” Not going to happen. We have to develop communication skills and teach our self new skills all the time. If you are not learning you are not growing. Our society has gotten so used to being entertained all the time and just vegetating in front of the dream stealer called TV hiding out in their house and hiding behind their computer. People, you got to get Out of your comfort zone and talk to people, it’s called “Networking” for a reason.

comfort-zoneWe know that many people are uncomfortable talking with new people and not sure what to say in some situations but that is NO Excuse not to learn. This thing called the “comfort zone” is holding most people back from Greatness. I know that most people are very comfortable talking about what they do for a living because that is where they know the most about the subject of their work. Ask me about my job and what I do and you can spit that conversation out No Prob. This is only because you are most informed and comfortable talking about a subject you know most about. So, learn about your biz opp company and how it works and what it does so that you can be comfortable talking about that as well. Know your products and how the comp plan works, study the reasons that your opportunity is great and why you joined in the first place, then you can talk with others about it and be comfortable in the conversation.

There is NO Easy button when it comes to Success. I tell people all the time; “If it was Easy then everyone would be doing it and there would be no money to it”. And it’s not that it’s hard, but it does take some study and some effort (work) to become a Great Network Marketer. If you think you are just going to join a program and sit and make the Big Bucks, you are sadly mistaken and will meet with much frustration and quit, there you go right back to that J.O.B. that you hate so much. They call it a J.O.B. because it stands for Just Over Broke!

Stop falling for all the sales pitch that tells you “if you only buy my course, You canno easy button make it big!” Stop looking for the easy button and learn something and get to work. Network Marketing has the potential to make you more money in a month then most people make in a year. It can bring about a lifestyle that most only dream of if you do it right. Yes, you are going to have to learn new life skills. Yes, you are going to have to talk to people. Yes, you Are going to have to get off your butt and DO IT or you are just wasting your time. The people I personally know that make 5 and 6 figure months are Action Takers! They don’t spend their time in front of the TV eating cheetos and twinkies watching the latest Kardashian crap. They constantly learn new ways to increase their teams and business volume to create more income. They talk with people on their team and new prospects everyday building an Empire that will last a lifetime. They “Commit, Educate and ACT” everyday because that is what it takes.

If you are looking for the Easy way out, then you are in the wrong place. BUT, if you are teachable and willing to learn new skills that can build an organization of like-minded people that are all heading in the same direction as you, then you too can have the Massive Success with Network Marketing. If you need some help or direction in your journey then I would suggest that you reach out to us and find out what we are doing to live the lifestyle that we LOVE. You have to “Commit, Educate and ACT”, that’s all there is to it.realtalk

Success In 3 Simple Steps

We are often asked about the Easiest way to Succeed in Network Marketing. As this is a loaded question because there are so many aspects to Networking there are Three Simple Steps that can drastically improve your results in your Networking career. If you just focus on these you will see a great improvement in your results.

The first step is to Improve Your Skills. You should always be studying ways to improve your skill improve-your-skillsset and increase your results. This can be done in many different ways as watching videos, reading self help books and learning from your mentor. The challenge here is to not get distracted in what you are doing. You need to learn and improve but you still have to take action. We see too many people spend all their time trying to learn to be perfect before they actually do something and that is a business killer. Take Action and then improve on your skills involved in your actions. Don’t wait till you are perfect to get started or you will never get started. There is an old saying that goes; You don’t have to be perfect to get going BUT you have to get going to be perfect. Take Action and improve on what you are doing is a Great step in the right direction.

The secoplease-do-not-feed-the-fears-quote-1nd step is to Get Over Your Fears! The number one killer in most peoples dreams is the fear factor. They are afraid of what others will think, or they are afraid of talking to someone and so on. Fear is your worst enemy. We tell our team all the time that this fear is in your own mind and you can concur your fears by doing what scares you most. Just do it! Sometimes it’s a fear of failure that keeps people back from reaching their dreams but if you haven’t failed then you have never tried. It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down it matters how many times you get back up! F.E.A.R stands for False Emotions Appearing Real. We all have our own fears and we must face fear head on and just try anyway. Often you can kick fear to the curb by just trying a new action that you soon realize was no big deal at all. Don’t let fear steal your Dreams!

The third Simple Step is Never Quit! We all get beat up sometimes and face many challenges along the way. Sometimes it seems as though we are just never going to reach that Big goal and people just quit. We tell everyone that; If it was Easy then everyone would do it and then there would be no reward for getting it done. If you want Massive Success then you have to make up your mind that you are going to keep moving forward No Matter what. Sometimes you are SO close to your success, you been working hard and pushing forward but just not quite where you wanted to be so people quit. That is usually about the time you are about to have a break through and gain momentum in your journey. If you quit then all your efforts are in vain and you will never get where you want to be in your business. Yes you will go through the ups and downs of building your business but you have to keep moving forward to achieve Success. Do you remember the name of that guy that quit? Yeah me neither! Do you know the name of that guy that just kept going and is now on the stage with the big checks? Yeah me too, I can name many of them and they are only there because they kept moving when all they wanted to do is quit. Quitters Never Win and Winners Never Quit! Don’t give up on your dreams just because you hit some hard times.never-give-up

Three Simple Steps to Massive Success:
1. Improve Your Skills
2. Get over Your Fears
3. Never Quit

Apply these three simple steps to Success in your Network Marketing business and you will see improvement in your results. Success is a science and should not be left up to chance. You need a game plan to get you started and keep you going in the right direction.

How to Stay Motivated

Whenever we first get started on a new project it is much easier to be motivated and doing something. But as time goes by and we continue to move forward it’s much harder to stay motivated to do the things we Must do to achieve our goal that we started with.

Feeling defeated will Never lead to Success and it can kill a dream quickly. So here are a few steps to help you Stay Motivated and moving forward along your personal journey.

*Take One Day at a Time. Don’t spend too much time worrying about tomorrow when you can Live in today. Do the things today that need to be done and be Grateful for Today. Live one day at a time and make it your Masterpiece!

*Surround Yourself with Positivity! Be Positive about what you are doing and surround yourself positivewith people and situations that support you. Don’t let negative people bring you down and rain on your parade. It is so easy these days to find Positive teachings and videos on the internet. If you spend more time feeding your mind with Positive thoughts, you will see more Positive influence in your overall life.

*Create a Vision board. Sometimes we need to have a visual to remind us Why we started in the first place. A vision board is a great way to keep your dreams and goals right in front of your eyes. Reflect on this vision board often and make it as detailed as possible and this will help to keep you focused on moving forward each day!

*Make S.M.A.R.T. Goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound. So be Specific about what you really want. Make sure your goals are Measurable so you know how it’s going. Also make sure this goal is Attainable in the real world, don’t wish to be a millionaire by tomorrow but you can work toward being a Millionaire. Make sure your goals are Relevant to what you want to accomplish. Then put a time frame on when you want to reach each specific goal. If you do not make that date it’s not the end of the world, just re-evaluate and move forward.

*Reward Yourself. Make sure to reward yourself when you reach a specific goal or point in your journey. There is no sweeter reward then crossing off the task at hand, Reward Yourself for your Victories!Believe-in-yourself

*Believe in Yourself. There is an old saying; “If You Believe in Yourself, Anything is Possible!” Another one goes; “If you believe you can Or you believe you can’t, You are right!” You have to believe that you are capable of doing the things that are going to get you where you want to go. Your belief is going to make ALL the difference.

*Recognize your Progress. It will take Progress to keep moving forward toward your desire. Don’t confuse motion with progress, a rocking horse has motion but does not make progress. Progress means you Are moving Forward toward your goals. Make sure you are making Progress and not just making excuses.

*Visualize Accomplishing Your Goals. See yourself as you want to be when you have reached your desired goal. Make sure you visualize what You really want and not what others want of you. Visualize the things you want, see it, believe it and then take Action to create it. Visualize to Actualize!

*Be Kind to Yourself and Don’t Compare Yourself to others. Stand guard over your thoughts and make sure you are speaking to Yourself as you would to someone you love. Be careful how you are speaking to yourself because you are listening. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of comparing your success to someone else. It is Your journey and not theirs. We each have different skill sets and great attributes and abilities and thus we are each very different. Be Yourself and don’t be too hard on yourself, there are plenty of people willing to do that for you. Be Proud even if you are making a few mistakes along the way because it means that You are trying. Be the Best You can be and rejoice in it.

be-grateful*Be GRATEFUL. And last but not least, Be Grateful for what you already have. Too often we spend time upset about what we do not have instead of being Grateful for what we do have. Take time to evaluate all the good things you have Today. Being Grateful is the Greatest form of Happiness. We may not have everything we want but we Always have things to be Grateful for. Live Simply, Dream Big, Be Grateful, Give Love and Laugh Lots! That’s the secret to life right there.

These are just a few things that can help keep you motivated and moving forward. You have to motivate yourself as well as surround yourself with others that have the same mindset and goals. It starts with you and only you can get you where you want to go. Others can help, or hurt, but the real difference will come from within YOU!

I Fell into the Trap

As we go through life we sometimes let our mind dwell on ttraphings that we really have No control of. We fall into the trap of letting our own mind drift off into worries and strife that we couldn’t change if we wanted to. There is an old saying; “It’s all in your head”, well that is certainly a True statement.

Too often we give time and thought to worries and ideas that really have no effect on our daily life and yet we let our mind spend hours and hours dwelling on them and processing our assessment of these situations. Telling our selves that “if only it were different” and “that’s not what I would do” or “he/she really needs to change” and such. We fall into the trap of worrying about stuff we can’t control.

PoliticsPolitics is a Great example of this. We all fall for the hype and daily stories of he said, she said politics, the news of the day and all the nonsense of what the media portrays as important. Don’t get me wrong, there is some serious stuff going on in the world today, but I can’t change it. I can cast a vote and hope for the best but I can’t change what is going on in the politics of Washington. I, and I mean I, fall into this trap all the time. I read way too much news and get all uptight and wound up over stuff I can not change or have any control of. Why not spend that time on stuff that really matters in my life today?

Sometimes we spend too much time worrying about tomorrow that we forget to “LIVE” today. Spend your time being Grateful for what you have instead of unhappy about what you don’t have. Don’t fall into the trap of wasted energy worrying about how you wish things were instead of being so Thankful for what you have in your life that really matters. It’s your mind, Control it! Take control of your thoughts and change the way your mind spends it’s time and you can become the person you truly want to be.”It’s all in your mind”, make sure it’s positive and productive not negative and destructive.

Change your thoughts and you change your life. Stop spending so much time on things you have no control over and start living in today. What can you do Today that will make a difference tomorrow? It really is Your choice and You have control over your thoughts and the importance you give to different situations. It only matters as much as you are willing to let it matter. Remove negative thoughts and even negative people from your daily routine and you will see a Big difference in how you view life.your time

We all fall into the trap but only you can find your way out. Positive thoughts attract positive actions. Don’t let your mind trap you into being negative or even worse, hateful. Nothing good comes from hate. Stand guard at the door of your mind!

We try real hard to surround ourselves with some of the most Positive and Entrepreneurial minded people we can find. We lift each other up and give a helping hand to those who at least try to succeed in life. Be Positive Today! We don’t care where you have been but we sure care about where you are Now and where you want to go from here. Take control of your thoughts and you can change your life.

Please let us know what we can do that can help you avoid the “trap”. Need to be surrounded by Positive and Motivated people? Check out our group and see if it’s a good fit for you. We work daily on making our partners more Successful in every way, you could be the Next Big Success story!

Why Texas?

So, we have been asked by several people recently “Why Texas”?

“How can you ever expect to have a successful Network Marketing business if you just focus on Texas?” So many people are taught that you need to be “Global”, you need to be everywhere with your marketing efforts and market to anyone and everyone that will listen. And that is fine if you want to just be on the computer and tied to your internet connection like an umbilical cord. Plus the attrition rate of this style marketing is over the top with people that join and drop out a month later because they didn’t texas flagmake it in the first 30 days. It’s a mess.

So, Why Texas? Having been in network marketing for many years we have learned that Network Marketing is a relationship business, a people business and requires a certain amount of face to face interaction to build the relationship and trust so people stay with you and stay focused on what we are trying to achieve. We believe that too often people want to just hide behind their computers and mass market to people they have never met, signing up lots but struggling to keep any on board. The attention span on the internet is way too short. Too many marketers just sign people up and throw them to the wolves and hope they make it.

We are taking a different approach to our new group. We want to work with people right here in our own backyard that we can get to know and build a relationship with. We want to meet you and learn what it is that you are looking for and why you are wanting to start a home based business. How in the world can we help you if we don’t even know you or what you are about? How can we help you reach your goals in this business if we haven’t taken the time to figure out where you are now and where you want to be? By focusing our efforts on Texans, right here in our own back yard we get to work with people one on one to help them get on track, commit to their goals and learn how to move their business forward.Austin-TX-Card

There are over 21 million people in Texas. We live in the Austin area and have almost a Million people right here in arms reach. Why not focus on those we can meet and build a working relationship right here in our own back yard? Why not help improve our “local” economy by building leaders we can work with on a daily bases? Network Marketing is about “Networking” with people, not hiding behind a computer screen all day. To be successful in Network Marketing you do NOT need to sign up hundreds of people to make the big bucks you just need to find a hand full of True Leaders that share your vision and work with them to build them up and make them successful and your business will grow like crazy.

We created Great Texas Minds to be a local group of like minded, entrepreneurial marketers that share our vision of Greatness. We truly want to work with people right here in Texas that are committed to making it work and willing to stay the course. People we can get to know, have a lunch with, do a meeting with or help in whatever way they need our help. We are not looking for followers, we are looking for Leaders that just need a little help in getting their business off the ground and running toward Success. It’s not about us, it’s about YOU! It’s about making your dreams and goals a reality so that you can find Success in your own business.

We have put together all the parts of the puzzle so that you don’t have to rely on guess work or go searching Google for that magic button that is going to make you rich. We have a plan, we have the tools, we have the training and most importantly we have the Support that will keep you going when you most need it. It’s called Network Marketing for a reason! Let us help you build your network of leaders and success stories.

The Lighthouse v Tug Boat Parable

 

A Lighthouse can help save boats.lighthouse
A Tug Boat can help save boats.

But both do so in a Dramatically different way!

The Tug Boat works feverishly to push and pull, hook and drag, always striving to help, or save a boat in need. In the process it works itself ragged trying to get itself and another safely to shore. Always working hard, 24 hours a day and always someone else to save.

The Lighthouse stands tall and steady shinning it’s light for all to see. It does not boast or yell about it’s glory, it just Shines a beaming ray of light to show others the way. There is no pushing or pulling, no need to drag anyone ashore, it just Shines so others can find their way. Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there Shinning the way.

tug boatThe Tug boat reminds me of the desperate Networker that is always pushing or tugging trying to get anyone to view their opportunity. They use hype and falsehood to promote hoping someone, anyone will just climb in the boat with them. Yelling about how great they and their opportunity are and yet they can not figure out why they just can’t seem to get going.

The Lighthouse just stands tall, showing the way knowing that so many are looking for the light. They do not have to yell or run around boasting about their one and only opportunity, they just Shine. They keep the hope going and show people the way to Success. They are steadfast in their work and don’t let the opinion of others decide their fate, They just Shine!

There is a Simple way for you to find Success if that is what you are truly looking for. You don’t have to become a cheesy salesman always yelling about your opportunity. Find the right Lighthouse and follow the path. You need someone that has the right opportunity, the tools and training to get you started, and most importantly the support to keep you going when you get lost in the fog. Then you can stand proud knowing that there are others looking for Your light as well. Position yourself as the Lighthouse and you won’t have to work like the Tug boat.shine

Time is Not Your Friend

 

There are very few things we have in life that are more precious thTIME-OUT-LOGOan time. Time, I’m told, changes Everyone. We’re all born with all the Time in the World, or so it seems in your youth, then Time just passes by. Like a slow moving wind it just slips away until you realize that, Time is Not Your Friend.

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what Really matters. The very things we thought were so important as a young man and woman tend to change over time. We chase the job, the next big promotion, the new car and status and all those things we thought were so important and were going to make us so happy and yet it just made you want more. Next time, Sometime, Another time, what does it matter, we got plenty of Time.

Time-1024x861But then one day you realize that Today needs to be “that day” and Now is definitely the time. The wake up call happens and you start to think that if I don’t do IT now, then when the heck am I gonna get to it. You said you would do it in time, you just didn’t realize that time was not an infinite source. In fact, our lives are but just a blink in the scope of humanity and as much as we would like to pause, hold on, step off and just stop time, we can not.

Life teaches us to make good use of time, while time teaches us the Value of Life. You only get so much time so you better make the best of what you were blessed with. No one can predict time and time waits for no one. And, once the time has passed it is gone forever. You can certainly look back and reflect on it but you can not go back and replay times past. The time will pass if your ready or not.

So, don’t waist your precious time on all those things that don’t really matter anyway. All things in life are only as important as we choose them to be. Sometimes things seem So Important in the moment only to realize latter that it was just another moment in time. Be careful as your time passes and just make sure that what you spent your time on really matters in the end.your time

Time is not your friend because we only have so much time to spend. Do what you Love to do today because tomorrow you might be out of Time.

I pondered on this post for months wondering if I was just rambling, was it worth the time? I saved it to draft and would come back time after time until I decided, this is what I have to say! Time is SOOOO Precious and sometimes we forget to enjoy the life trying to make a living.

Take care of your time.

We take care of ours by living a very simple life. We are blessed to be able to live like we want, get up when we want, do what we want and just be who we want to be. It really is a Great Simple Life!
