Think & Grow Rich Lessons

We talk about the Sixth Sense last week.  The Creative imagination is running on all cylinders and you are able to work on a hunch and utilize your gut instinct at the right times.  In other words things are running as smooth as possible and you are on the road to prosperity.    This, however, will never happen with the three negatives controlling your mind: Indecision, Doubt, and Fear.

Indecision to me is not knowing what you want to do and what you want to achieve.  If that is the case there is a good chance you will never begin the journey.  They say in School when you have a long paper to write or in Workouts when you are out of shape.  “The Hardest Part is getting started.”

Doubt deals with belief in what you are doing.  Is this vehicle going to get me where I want to go?  Is this the right program for me?  Many will question that because of the naysayers in their life.  In regards to Network Marketing, do as Michael Dloughy says, “You need to be with a five pillar company.” That answers covers the matter!  

The second part of Doubt regards your self.  “Do I have what it takes to succeed?  This works for these folks, but will it work for me?  As talked in the previous lessons, one must believe in themselves and what they’re doing, before they will ever succeed.  

If not they will be on the direction to poverty verses the direction to riches.  This involves finances, health, happiness and overall quality of life.  It is your individual choice.  

There are six basis Fears: Poverty, Criticism, Ill Health, loss of Love of Someone, Old Age, and Death.   

There are the matters that we can control and the things we cannot control.    

Will cover the non-controllable fears first. One will always get criticism from somebody no matter what they are doing.  Even if you are doing well someone will criticize you for it.  We always will have family members or friends who may not support the network marketing business.  They may not be bad people, but they simply do not get it or want to get it.  That is okay, love them where they are at, but do not focus on it.  The same goes for the critics and jokers you will run across while prospecting.  Some will do everything they can to rain on your parade.   I personally have learned to not take in personal.   Many are Debbie Downers because they have allowed the elements of the world to take control of life and minds!  That is fine as long as it does not happen to us.   Many need what we have as far as the benefits of being a customer or an opportunity for a residual source of income or both! 

We cannot control getting older in terms of birthdays.  It seems like the older I get the quicker time flies by.  We can control how we take care of our selves as far as exercise, nutrition, and mental health.  Not only do we have a chance to live longer, but also have more enhancements in our life. 

There is a one hundred percent mortality rate for each of us.  We are all going to die someday and nobody knows when their clock is going to run out. It is best to live life to the fullest for families, friends, and us and make the world a better place. 

If we fear and thank poverty we will remain there and have a life of quiet desperation, which a majority does.  If we think riches and wealth in our mind they will in time move from the mind to the physical.  It is all in the mindset.  Once this happens we can take our mind and focus on the mission, which is the road to wealth in all aspects of life. 

That we can control.  What helps is listening and reading the right material. Associating with people that enhance your life as much as possible instead of ones that bring you down.  We may be able to do this all the time.  Plus listen or watch the news as little as possible and do not bicker with folks on Social Media.  I say this because I find myself slipping in to this trap frequently.  How can anybody get enhancement from this? I certainly don’t.

Besides the leadership of our five pillar companies, we are all blessed with Mentoring for Free.  Thank you Michael and Linda Dloughy for this wonderful program.  Thank you Rick Burnett for reaching out to me and being such a good friend as far as support.  Thank you to everybody who participates on these weekly calls.  You all have enhanced my life.
