Attitude of Gratitude

We too often focus on what we don’t have, and overlook or even ignore what we do have.

The attitude of gratitude helps anchor us, to remind us of what we have, and how precious it is to us.

So take a moment to look around you, and appreciate all you have. Might be meaningful for some but might be very important for others.

The 4 Network Marketing Myths

You see a lot of misconception around Network Marketing and misleading information. So what is the truth? Is it for you?

Myth 1.  I am too old to start in Network Marketing

You are never too old to start ANYTHING NEW. Very often we hear people say they feel “it’s too little, too late”. In other words they feel like they have lost too much time, and now they can’t have the impact they want on their financial freedom, or they see new technology as very confusing.

If you have a good coach, trainer that show you step by step how it is done, you will have no problem to build a great business. Of course it might take you more time at the start but then when you’ll start making money you will be able to outsource the tasks you don’t want to do.

Don’t find this excuse to stop you. You can do it. Have faith in you!

There are two kinds of people in this world. Ones that go out ~ The go-getter~  and try to build a better life for themselves and their families, and the ones that sit there, poke faults and tell you all the reasons it can’t be done, without even actually doing it themselves.

Myth 2. Need to be successful before you brand yourself

Question we all ask ourselves when we start Network Marketing or going into Social Media, is           “Who is going to listen to us?”

You would be very surprised how many people follow you. You have an audience that just started and know very little about network marketing. Share your story, be vulnerable. You did follow some training to be where you are; if you are ready to do a video, a blog, you know your content. You are an expert in their eyes; so don’t put yourself down and keep going!

Myth 3. Is the market saturated?

Another concern that people have is that there is a lot of companies out there and unfortunately there is a lot of “crap”. Don’t follow the last shiny object otherwise you won’t be able to build a proper business. Do your homework before joining, check the company, how long they are doing it… You hear that all the time, be the first person to sign up! Timing is important! Well if you join a business that just started guess what? It might just close a few months after and you lose your money. So join a business wisely and do your due diligence. Also another point that we are asked a lot :

Only the persons at the top make money?                  WRONG !!

You are rewarded for your efforts – if you work harder than the people above you, you’ll make more than them. It doesn’t matter when you join; if you take massive action and you stay consistent then you will get successful results!

Myth 4. Network Marketing is a pyramid scheme:

Pyramid schemes are money games, with no exchange of product or service.

Network Marketing is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated for the sales of products or services they generate, and for the sales of products or services of other salespeople that they recruit.

The big difference is whether a product or service is being sold or not. An illegal pyramid scheme provides no products or services and pays according to how many people you recruit and/or the money they are putting into the system.

Legal network marketing programs offer quality products and services that are sold to consumers. Enrolling new members allows to get an increased income based on the volume of sales in the entire team.

So are you ready to join a Network Marketing Company?

It is not a scheme of getting rich quick!! It all depends on your daily activities; how long you spend each day and what is your goal… If you are consistent and patient, you will achieve a lot more than if you do it as a hobby. Most of top earner built six figure income within two to five years of joining their company. But they usually stick with only ONE company. This is important that you don’t switch every six months if you want to build a successful business. You have a lot of tools in place that can help you, you can outsource a lot of task and use duplication also.

What is Your Why?

The motive behind an action is the most important piece of the story and your WHY is usually born out of pain. To make a difference in this world, you have to inspire people to join your journey. And it is the same when you want to brand yourself in any industry.

Meaning of your WHY: Fulfillment is a right and not a privilege. Finding fulfillment in life starts with understanding exactly WHY you do what we do. What is your purpose? what is your belief?  Why do you get out of bed every morning? The why has to be the result of all your effort, your way of wanting to change your life and/or people lives. You’ll make more intentional choices for your business, your career and your life. You’ll be able to inspire others to buy from you, work with you and join your cause.

Put into words your vision, write small and big goals; you want to make sure you see your vision, your why. The difference between people with success and the one unsuccessful is the decision to act in the directions of their dreams. They understand that they need to take action and have daily tasks.

If you are unclear of your why, keep a journal; write your feelings, actions and thoughts and see what makes you happy and passionate. It has to come from you, your personal thoughts and not your family’s or friend’s.

As an entrepreneur, you need to talk first about the end results of your product/service and not start with how it is going to work or what to do to get results. The difference between most entrepreneur and people that achieve better is the way we talk and present our opportunity. Usually we talk first about what we have, then how it is working and at last why they should buy it. Try by the WHY and you’ll see a much better result.

The top entrepreneurs and companies say first the Why we should buy from them. Because they have the best product/service. Once you have an audience that believe in you, you can sell them more products/service because they believe in you.

Exemple of Apple: They branded themselves as the best product that is, no matter what they do, phone – earphone- computer .. their followers want to buy it from them. They queue hours to get the latest product, and that is because these people are absolutely confident with what they buy, they trust Apple and believe on their product.

Trust and Loyalty is coming with the WHY. Clarify your personal values.

It is the same for you, believe that what you are doing is the right thing to do and people will follow you.

So First define what success means to you, then create a vivid image of you as a successful person.. Live it as if you are already there.

You don’t need to do business with people that need what you have but the goal is to do business with people that believe what YOU believe.

The Law of Diffusion of innovations is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread.

Innovators are pushed by desire to create something new.

Early Adopters are the people that want to be the first to get it, the pioneer to be able to talk about it … in the example of Apple, they would queue hours to get the new IPhone.

To get mass market success you need to touch the 68% of the population – early majority and late majority. However to do that you need to achieve the tipping point which is in red to achieve market penetration. Without it, you won’t be able to market your product at a high level, because the majority of people won’t believe your product is good enough and they are not going to buy it as a pioneer, they want someone else to try it first. You want to target these first people because they are believers.

Laggards are just people that makes slow decision, falls behind others.

Your followers are behind you because they believe it would suit themselves. So you want to be a leader that inspire others and not the leader that show power and authority only. You want them to follow you because they want to and not because they have to.

As an entrepreneur, once your audience believe in you and your motivation, you can try anything and they will stay by your side.

So find your WHY before you start any business and want a change in your life .. The WHY is wrapped up in emotion and stories and events in your life. You need to share your stories, and give away what you can to inspire people and then you’ll reach the tipping red point and you’ll have loyal followers.

The best ideas are the honest ones – ones born out of personal experience – ones that originated to help a few and ended up helping many” – Simon Sinek

I would love to hear your WHY.

The 6 Tips for a Long Term Growth in your Business

If you want to be in this industry long term, you need to make a plan. And you need to stick with it. That is what makes the difference between the quitter and the one that are unstoppable . Don’t focus on growing too quickly, take the lesson from the classic “tortoise and hare” fable. You want to position yourself in an enduring success and sustainability.

Impatience and greed will lead you to failure but with a right plan, a strategy and patience, you can do wonders in this industry.

jim-rohn

1- You need to value every single relationship. Each time you prospect and reach out to people, don’t think of getting them into your business but make a friend, connect with this person and then after a few exchange, you can talk about what you do and ask what they do. You never know you might have found the best partner you could ever had, or a new customer that will lead to a best friend. But if you are too impatient and send your link straight away, you are not going to connect with them and lose the person. That is a guarantee!!

2- You need to make sure you understand the company you get enrolled with and know the product.. as I always say be the product of the product this way you can talk better and you can be 100% accurate. No point joining many companies, even if they say it’s free; you can’t concentrate and do many affiliates. Choose one wisely, be an expert and once it is all running smoothly you can see if you want to join another affiliate.

3- Build mentor relationship; business is about people, and if you want to build a team you need to build your confidence and show your leadership. Over time, it means working to build trust, set goals and keep the mentoring relationship on track.

4- Make your business fun; Anything you enjoy, you’re naturally going to do a better job and give more of yourself.  Make your daily task something you look forward to rather than simply a responsibility and stress about it. Even the longest days don’t seem so rough if you like what you are doing. Engage with people, make fun of your mistakes, make fun of your bad experiences. Don’t pressure yourself and as I always say, you are not in a race, take your time and spread this enthusiasm to your team and co-worker.

goals-4-steps-to-align-your-goals-with-your-actions

5-  Never stop innovating and creating new things, align your actions with your intentions. Set up your goals, prioritize and be consistent.

(source pic: http://bit.ly/2hKfju0 )

6- And the last point, which is the most important one, make time for Long-Term Planning. Write your goals in phases, this will allow you to track your progress and evaluate your targets. Make some changes in your plan if needed but stay focus and don’t be discourage if you are a bit behind your goals.

Stop finding excuses!!! Be unstoppable !

How to be unstoppable with your business and dream!!!

I want to start with this quote:

“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an Unstoppable Manner” – Les Brown


Many people want to change their lives but they are scared of moving forward, they are scared of having to learn new skills, they are scared of what others think, and I can go on with the list…..

When we start something new in our life, we tend to see only the past and failure and we forget to see our true vision and our goals. You will only achieve your objective if you REALLY want it and send the right signal to the Universe. Some people were in much tougher situation than you and they did get results so why not you?

You need to stop being the victim or putting the fault to others… Everything you have in your mind, is Yours and nobody else. Change your Mindset

If you really want to succeed, you need to work for it and take responsibility of your actions. It is only when you will empower yourself that you will move forward and get the results expected.

When you think of doing something new to improve your life, don’t think of Someday I will…. that is not the signal you want to send; because someday will be Never… you will never move forward thinking this way.

DO IT RIGHT AWAY….

You’ll never find a right timing but only excuses. You need to change your mindset and DO IT.

Think this way; everything you did so far in your life, your past, your misadventures, your happy moment, everything happen for a reason and it brought you today to my blog and I really hope I gave you a boost to start following your dreams.

blog-unstoppable

Love yourself and be grateful for what happened to you, even the negative part because it made YOU. Be thankful for your past as it made the perfect YOU that is reading to this right now.

Think also this way, it is not only about you; if you fail to succeed you will fail to help and inspire others. There is always someone listening to your videos, reading your posts and get motivated. So it is your time to empower yourself, to stop finding excuses and ignite the fire in YOU !!!

Invest in yourself to succeed in your business

Investing in yourself may be the most profitable investment you ever make, and one of the best return you can have in life and in your business. If you focus your energy and your time in developing yourself personally or professionally, you will be able to give to others and people will be attracted to you in life and in your business. You need to start a habit of taking care of yourself before you take care to others. And the good news is they don’t all require money 🙂

“Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” – Robin S. Sharma

Learn and give to yourself before you give others!!!

1. Develop your skills in your business and/or your personal life

You don’t need to invest in mastery education, you can if you want to but don’t need to. But you should attend seminars and workshops to expand your knowledge and skills in your business and/or personal life. Join a community that will be with you when you need it, to push you when you have doubt, and when you want some answers. This will also give you the opportunity to meet and interact with individuals who are like-minded. Powerful!!!

2. Explore your creative side and build up your confidence

Creativity  helps us to grow personally and professionally and will build your confidence. However  you need to implement your creativity to grow. Stimulating creativity and exploring your ideas are keys to improve your productivity, find new strategies for your business and approach/gage your everyday tasks. Creativity also teaches you how to think differently while having fun doing something different You will then find your strength and your weakness, and also what work best or what doesn’t. Speak the truth, be yourself, and you’ll build up great confidence.

3. Take care of yourself, nurture your mind and body

When you are nurturing both your mind and body, it allows you to have more energy, keep your mind active and maintain mental ability. You should read everyday books or ebooks. Could be something to help with your self-development, or for your business or even something light to just relax your mind. You can listen to Podcast, it is free and it is a great way to change your mindset ( as soon as I am finished with this blog, I am going to  listen to Tony Robbins podcast, Powerful !!) Don’t waste valuable time watching too much TV !!! A good way to explore culture is to attend performances, listen music, travel and reach out to like minded people from other countries and backgrounds.

You need to take care of your body also and it is usually the part we all forget. Eat healthy at regular time, drink plenty of water, reduce caffeine 🙂 get regular exercise, take vitamins if you need , practice meditation (at least 30 min everyday), go to bed at an appropriate time. The big earners usually go to bed early and are early riser. Your appearance also is very important so make sure you take care of the outside too. And be happy and grateful! Happiness is a choice, you either focus on the positive aspects of life or the negative aspect.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy

You need to forgive also because holding grudge and being angry won’t solve any problem but it will hold you back in life. Even if you have a bad day and someone is trying to get on your nerves, just breath, it is time for meditation 🙂  and you’ll see you’ll feel better after. Choose your friends wisely and get rid of toxic ones.

4. Set goals and develop a routine

Setting goals will help you to envision your future and visualize your short and long term motivation.  One important way to get more productive is to develop a routine and schedule your time. Plan your day and manage every hour of your day. Put a timer beside you so you don’t spend too much time on one task and first thing first put away all the distractions. Also very important, stop delaying or postponing your actions. Procrastination won’t allow you to move forward. Challenge yourself and get out of your comfort zone.

5. Invest in a coach or find a mentor

I kept it for the last because I think it is the most important value to help you develop your business and your life. A coach will assist you and guide you to put everything in place to implement your success plan. It usually is a few session or a short period of time. A good mentor is someone who will support and encourage you to reach to higher goals, to push you when needed and challenge you. Over time your mentor could be a very good friend but use caution and ask yourself if you spend time outside the mentoring relationship.

In Conclusion,  investing in yourself emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially, will allow you to become the best version of yourself. When you are the best version of yourself, you will be an attraction magnet to others and your business will grow immensely!!

5 tips to gain mastery and build a successful business online

I am going to show you today some tricks to obtain mastery and build a successful business online.

On my last blog I talked about the 4 stages of competences and i invite you to read it, very powerful !!

In summary:

In Stage 1, you need to recognize your own competence and decide if you want to learn – the big risk factor is an unwillingness to learn;

In stage 2, you really want to learn and roll up your sleeves – the big risk factor is the fear of failure or perfectionism and aversion to change;

In stage 3, you know what you have to do –  the big risk factor is simply in not continuing to practice or improve. Doing that you’ll lose your skills and won’t perform effectively;

In stage 4, this is the mastery level where all your skill become “second nature”

Once you reach this level, you should make the commitment to engage in the ” Learn, Do, Teach” method. You will then be a great teacher followed by many people. You can achieve mastery of all these concepts and internalize them.

5 tips to help you gain mastery over these concepts

  • Repetition is the path to mastery: You need to rewire your brain, and make it a commitment to do your daily task. Meditation, learning something new each day, prospecting and engaging with your audience. Remember with repetition comes conviction.
  • Be coachable: If you find difficulty with motivation, you are probably missing either the desire or belief in yourself. If you really want to learn, you can accept change in your life and be willing to be corrected.
  • Engage in the community: Post your questions, share your success even the smallest one. It will give you a boost and help others with their questions. Surround yourself with successful people !
  • Attend events: If you can attend the offline events, this is where the real change happens. There is nothing quite like actually physically being around successful leaders. You have also several online events that you should attend regularly.
  • Invest in Mentorship: If you want massive growth and success in the form of wealth and freedom, you should be a part of a mastermind of top level performers. You should always push yourself and be surrounded with top mentors. Even the top earners are constantly investing in coaching and mentorship

The ultimate X-factor to make more money and multiply your sales is YOU.

You need to be Unique and Valuable.

You need to brand your name, your face, your energy, your confidence, your enthusiasm….

You need to continue building your personal value by investing in yourself. Doing that you’ll increase credibility to others by providing them value with what you are learning.

Build relationship, solve the problems of others, provide them value without any ulterior motives and you will attract success to you like a magnet. Don’t forget, people buy people!!! One of the biggest barrier to sales is the lack of trust, so be yourself and communicate with your prospect without an agenda.

Treat on line just like you would if you were meeting your prospect online. Don’t be pushy or pitchy that will make you come across as desperate and needy. Be courteous, polite and inquisitive. If they subscribed to your newsletter or want to get more information about what you are doing, the way you reach out to people and bring them value, chances are, they are not getting results they want to be getting and you’ll be able to provide them with a solution.

Once you have built rapport by actually having a real conversation and listening to people, they will tell you their challenges…You can then offer them a solution

Exemples: “Hey Jack, I’m so glad we got to connect and I understand your challenge with _____________ because I struggled with that too and felt exactly the same way. Here’s what I found that worked well for me and it might work well for you too, would you like me to send you some information on it?”

9 out of 10 times you will get a positive response when you do this right and many of those whom you send the information too will buy from you. Even if you don’t benefit from the sales they will respect you for what you have done.

Also another little tips to see where your audience is and what page they like, go to your Facebook profile, Manage adverts and go to audience insights

Once you know your niche, select the location, age and gender and interest. Then you can see on Page likes where your audience is and you can prospect people from these pages. Don’t pitch, build relationship!!!

How to improve your motivation?

What is it you want and what are you going to do to achieve your goal?

That is the first question, you have to ask yourself when you seem completely demotivated!

You have the persons that write their goal on a piece of paper and read it mornings and evenings; you have some that make a picture and keep it on their phones, some keep the photograph of their dream goal in their wallets, some put big note in their bedroom, study room, on the ceiling … well everybody can choose their way to remember WHY THEY CHOSE THIS PATH.

 Envision the end result.

Motivation is divided into two parts:

Internal Motivation ( intrinsic) and External Motivation (extrinsic)

Internal motivation  is the force that leads you to achieve a goal because of personal satisfaction or desire; like starting up your own business or participating in a competition or buying a new house.

External motivation is the driving force that triggers you in achieving your goal. Such as money, prize, encouragement or fear to get punishment.

To get better results, what you need is to have a plan;

  • Write a time frame, how long you want to achieve your goal, put a date, a period of time, and how badly you want it.
  • Why you want to do this new project, business, and what satisfaction will you get when it is done?
  • Do everyday little steps; you’ll see your business increasing each day. But be careful of the shortcuts, it is perfectly fine to take your time and achieve your goal, you’ll enjoy the victory better.
  • Every day routine is very important, listen to podcast, youtube, person you highly respect in your industry. Write on your board, desk what you have to do every single day. Make a list and adjust as needed. Commit publicly, it will be harder to back off.
  • When you start a task, put away any distractions and any negative influences. Feeling guilty will bring a step away from your goal. It is ok to be selfish, nothing wrong to want more and having a dream. It is important to be surrounded with supportive people, positive people that understand you and your goal.
  • When you have a step back, just think it as a lesson and not a failure. Embrace the struggle, you are learning. If you have people judging you and sending negative vibes around you, just ignore them; People who judge other people are often unhappy themselves.

Don’t restrict yourself based on the limited minds or views of others

The journey is valuable, but believing in yourself, your talents, your abilities will make you stronger and more confident. Transform your fear into freedom and you’ll walk into a brighter path

Thinking pure positive thoughts is the best way for you to develop your motivation.

Execution is what will make a difference and get you what you want.
