Is Your Reason Good Enough?

Everyone is looking for some kind of “Change” in their life. For some it’s to change their current financial situation for others it’s a change of status or lifestyle or even where you live, but “Change” is a common desire for most people. This desire to change current situations can be a growing experience or, for some it is the change itself that holds so many people back from their dreams. Many people want to change but they don’t have a big enough reason to make the change so today we ask; “Is Your Reason Good Enough?”

Sometimes this “reason” is also referred to as your “Why” and it really determines your ability to make the change you desire. If you are seeking to change a situation then you have to have a big enough “reason” or “why” that is going to move you to do the things necessary for the change to occur. Too often we meet people that want to change this or that but when you really drill down, we discover that their reasons just aren’t big enough to make them commit to the task needed to see the change come about. This change can also be smothered in fear and doubt that squashes many personal dreams and goals. Your reason for change has to be the core motivation that is going to move you away from your comfort zone and toward your desired change.

commitmentThe second level of this “reason” is your commitment to your why. Are you committed and determined to this “why” enough to actually do the things necessary to change? Sometimes we want change and we even know why but actually doing something about it is a whole different story. Your degree of commitment is going to determine the outcome of what you want to change and this commitment must be strong for some reasons and even stronger for others. If you are totally committed to making a change in your current situation then you will find a way to make it happen but if not, you will just find an excuse why it didn’t. The infamous Jim Rohn had a saying: “If you don’t like how things are then Change, You are not a tree!”

If you really want to change things in your life then you need to connect with your “Emotional Why”. We normally change things from an Emotional stance more often then an Intellectual stance because our emotions have more effect than just a thought. If you just think about a change, it can become just a passing thought but when you are emotional about making a change then you have a bigger reason to find an answer to the situation. This emotional why is what can move you and cause you to work out a plan that will increase your chances of success and change. We ask people “Why are you starting a home based business?” and we often here “I want to make more money”, and though that is a good reason that is not an emotional why. The bigger question would be “What do you want to do with this money that is going to make you want to get busy and build your business?” Is it pay off your mortgage? or buy a new car? or help send your kid to college? or what? See, this is an Emotional Why and not just a quick simplified reason.

We have to dig deep and define Exactly what the reasons are that we are going to dig-deepsucceed in our new business endeavor and change our current situation. Don’t throw out generalizations about why but find specific reasons and desired outcomes that will define, to a tee, exactly what this success or change looks like. Create a mental picture of Exactly what you want the outcome to be and build on the exact reasons you are willing to go the extra effort to get there. This emotional why is going to determine if you actually get there or not and if your “reason” or “why” isn’t strong enough then you will not find the will and determination to create the change. So we ask again, “Is Your Reason Good Enough?”

We have been working with children fighting cancer for almost 9 years now and really love this blessed work. The need is Great and there are many families that are fighting this horrible disease of childhood cancer. We started out just doing small fund raisers to help local kids and quickly connected with many others with the same needs. We then started a Hope Box Program where we sent boxes of presents to brave fighters all over the country that included whatever they wanted and needed to bring just a moment of happiness into their troubled lives. We always included the other siblings in the household so no one gets left out and really enjoy the smiles and joy that we get back when their parents send back pictures. This continued to build until we had to create a legal Non Profit Foundation 501 c3 because it was just getting to big to do as a hobby and we needed the funding to continue our mission. We now hold many big events for our fighters and families throughout the year and we enjoy getting together with all these families on a regular basis. We Love what we are blessed to do, but childhood cancer is a horrible world to witness and watch as families see their children experience treatments, hospital stays and even the loss of their baby and loved one. It really is heart wrenching but the joy of loving and giving to these families is what makes it all worth the effort.

b4acThis is our “Emotional Why” and the reason we are completely committed to being successful with our home business. In times of doubt and frustration we know that we have no choice but to get up and do it again because we have so many depending on us to help them in need. All the programs and events we do cost a lot of money and we are blessed to be able to do this work. Our success in business is what is going to connect us with like minded people and companies that are going to help us carry on this great work and bless these families with Hope and Love in anyway we can. We are 100% committed to our Emotional Why and know exactly what the reasons are for making sure we expand our value to this cause. It’s not just a want-to attitude, it’s a Must DO attitude that keeps us going and moving forward so we can help more brave fighters and their families in a time of great need.

So, “Is Your Reason Good Enough?” We don’t tell you about our “why” to gloat or brag about the work we do, we tell you this to help you connect with Your Emotional Why. If you are looking to change something or achieve a desired goal in life then you need to connect with the REAL Reason that you are going to make it happen. What is IT that is going to make you jump out of bed and get busy, what is it that is going to make you step out of your comfort zone and do something that your future self is going to thank you for? Change is easy to talk about and simple reasons are a dime a dozen but true Emotional Why’s are the core of creating change. We should all spend more time talking with the person in the mirror and digging deeper to understand the real reasons that we are going to “Go For It” instead of just talk about it. Take a little time to truly connect with your Emotional Why and you will start to see things in a different light and seek out answers instead of excuses.

Our Why is bigger than any one of us and constantly moves us to be more, do more amandaand experience more in this Wonderful twist of events we call life. If you need some help discovering your true Emotional Why then Please reach out and let’s connect. Sometimes if we just ask better questions and dig deeper we find out what is really important in life and what really matters to us all. Our Foundation is called Battle For a Cure Foundation and we would love your support. We Stand with the Smallest Fighters in a Battle of a Lifetime and support the whole family in Great times of need. We funded our first clinical trial into brain cancer last year and we are getting ready to fund a new trial this year to help find a cure for this horrible disease. These trials are very expensive but without the trials into new medications and treatments they will never find a cure. These events and programs we do take funds to make them happen and we always need the help from volunteers and donations. You can find our webpage at Battle4aCure.org or connect with us via Facebook by clicking here. We try to keep everyone up to speed on what is going on and provide updates on many of our brave fighters. If you find it in your heart to help, it would be Greatly Appreciated.

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

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!

Stay Motivated and Moving Forward and You can reach your desired goal or situation that started this journey in the first place. We are always here to help and would love to be one that can help you stay the course and moving forward. Surround Yourself with like minded people that will lift you up and support your cause, we can help with that.

As Always, you can reach out to us so we can connect and feed each other’s dreams. You can learn more about who we are and what makes us tick at our personal website at DeanAndDena.com. You will find all our contact info and see what we are up to that might help you achieve your goals as well.

So Your New to Network Marketing

Deciding to become a Network Marketer is a Big decision. You took your time and did your research and decided to take the plunge, jump in feet first and become a Networker. You are going to Rock this “thing” and change your current lifestyle and financial situation. Great Move!

Now what? Now is the time to commit to your new mission andjust the facts here are a few things you Really need to lock in your mind. These are some cold hard facts about Network Marketing that will determine if you will make the first 90 days, first 6 months or even your first year in Network Marketing.

First you MUST remember why you started in the first place. What was it that made you step off into this new endeavor? What is your “Why” that is going to keep you going on the bad days when you just want to quit? This needs to be right in front of you Every day to remind you why you started and what is the reward for keeping on and staying the course. You need to be very specific about your “Why” so that you know Exactly what it is that you wanted to accomplish. Make a vision board or post some pictures, write it down and carry it in your pocket or whatever you need to do to keep this front and center so it keeps moving you in the right direction.

You have to know that Network Marketing is a “Long term” commitment. This isn’t something you can “try” and see if it works for you. It works for those who put in the effort and stay to the course. Network Marketing is built for “Residual Income” and you have to have a long term commitment so you stay on course and continue to move forward. If you are willing to put in the time and effort now, and hustle now building your organization then you can reap the benefits for years to come. But, You have to be committed to process for the long term and get rid of the idea that you are just trying this thing out. Do today what others won’t and you can do tomorrow what others can’t!

acceptYou need to release all of your need for “acceptance” from your friends and family. You have to know that what you are doing is for You and not them. It really doesn’t matter what they think or what they say because it is Not their journey. If you require that everyone is going to support and or accept what you are doing then you will not make it in this business. Know that some are going to talk trash, laugh at what you are doing and even tell you that “that stuff never works” but it’s all just their fear and ignorance and not yours. You cannot surround yourself with people that don’t support you and cannot see your vision. Some may even have to go! You need to know that some people just cannot see themselves ever succeeding so they will do anything they can to make sure you don’t either. You do Not need this acceptance or approval from them because you started this journey for a reason and you are making changes to improve Your life and change Your current situation.

The benefit of Succeeding in Network Marketing is that you lift yourself up to a better lifestyle and financial freedom. You free yourself from debt and a life of working all the time. You improve you financial situation and lifestyle in ways that set your Free of the oppression that has become the American dream. Go to school, rack up debt, get a good job, that pays little, work your life away and MAYBE some day you can retire. What a joke! Maybe back in the early American industrial days this was a good plan but in the job market today it just doesn’t hold water. Success with Network Marketing leads to Freedom! We call this the “Simple Life” and we Absolutely Love it. You can have this Simple Life as well if you commit and stay the course.

You need to start to work on Yourself and improve your skills readyand mindset. This includes self improvement through books, videos, seminars or where ever you can indulge your mind in a Positive and Creative learning experience. You cannot spend all your time watching TV and expect to change how your life is going. If you spent near as much time in Positive Life Changing content as you do watching that dream stealing box called TV you would see a major difference in what is going on in your head. You have to improve yourself to see a better You that is going to learn how to be successful in Network Marketing.

When you are new to Network Marketing it is the most important time of your new career. You took on this new endeavor so that you could make Positive changes in your life. You wanted things to be different than what your current situation was and you had enough vision to see that Yes You Can do this. Now is the time to learn and most importantly DO! We call this: Commit, Educate and ACT! You must commit to what you want to accomplish, You must Educate yourself on how to accomplish this and Most Importantly you have to ACT! Just DO It!

You need the tools, training and systems to make your new business work and we can help you with this. We have put together a “Game Plan” that includes all the parts of the puzzle to Succeed with Network Marketing. We bring the tools of the trade, the training you need to get started and moving forward and we bring the Support that you need to keep going.

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

If you would like to see the light we are shinning out to the marketplace, just visit our site and we can show you the way! We don’t have to be boastful or hyped about what we do, we just have to be the Lighthouse and the right people will seek and find a real way to Success.

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.

What is Your Big Why

Your Big Why deananddenaWHY?  When starting a business, one of the first and most important questions that you are asked is “What is your Why”.  With everything in life, there is a purpose or a reason; Why are you doing it?  Your “Why” is what drives your passion and it is the soul purpose in your heart and business.

Ask yourself these 3 questions:

  1. What am I most passionate about?
  2. If I could make a difference for anyone or anything, what would it be?
  3. What organization, cause or group do I feel a connection too?

Your “Why” is what makes you get out bed every morning; It’s your desire to make a difference and it is what keeps you going when times in life get tough. When you are motivated to make a difference, it is your “Why” that drives you.

Our “Why” became very apparent to us as we witnessed our 21 year old daughter at the time take on a passion for children fighting cancer.  We did not have any children in our family who had cancer so this was new for us.  As we watched her interact with these children and their families, we felt a desire to help.

Hope box

The Battle for a Cure Foundation is our “Why”:  The hope boxes that are sent out to these children and their siblings on Christmas are the most memorable, exciting event to see.  It makes us laugh, cry, and feel so blessed that we get to be a part of it! Not only do we send out hope boxes but we plan events so that the children can have fun and just be kids.

Battle for a Cure has brought our family together; we have Aunts, Uncles, sisters, brothers, grandparents, cousins and grandchildren and lots of friends and volunteers who have made Battle for a Cure what it is today because they chose to make it their “Why”!

 

your why deananddenaSo when someone asks you, “what is your “Why”, take the time and search your heart and your soul before deciding!  Your “Why” is a very important decision and it not only makes a difference in your life but it makes a difference in someone else’s too!
