Ditch Digger or Multi-Millionaire…What’s the Difference?

“The difference between a ditch digger and a multi-millionaire is the way that they think.” That is what several of my mentors have taught me since I was 23 years old! They always say that success is an attitude, not a destination.

So what is your thought process? Do you have a thought process for your success? Changing your thought process for success is not easy but it is possible with the right effort and dedication. Most of our thought process has been directed to think mediocre and average. We get our thought processes from family, school, co-workers, bosses, and friends. If you are looking to step out of mediocrity and into success, it will take changing your thought process to make that happen.

How do you change your thought process? For starters, it helps to associate with other successful individuals so that you can learn what they know and understand what they think so you too can adapt their thought process. Another way to change your success thinking is to invest in yourself through books and audios where you can learn from multi-millionaires while you are driving your car to work, etc.

When you start thinking differently and your thinking is geared toward success, you will take action toward your goals and not waste time. For example, if you know that you need to make some calls or meet people to expand your business prospecting, you will want to take those actions instead of wasting time doing things that don’t matter and procrastinate. It is simply a matter of discipline; doing what you know you should do even if you don’t feel like doing it.

Are you ready to climb out of the ditch or rut of your day to day corporate life? Do you want to learn how you can actually make money from home and be able to pay your bills, travel, and have plenty of money and peace of mind?

Action Is The Key!

Every goal, every dream, and every success that we achieve comes about by action. Most people want success and have a plan on how to achieve that success.They think about everything that they have to do and write down an action plan but fail to do the one thing that will help them get where they want to and that is take action.

The fact is, the very action that brings about success or goal achievement is usually the action that moves people out of their comfort zone. The reason why most people don’t take action is that they do not want to get out of their comfort zone. It is easier to stay put than to put themselves in a position to fail and look bad. The people who are willing to step out of their comfort zone are generally the same people who go on to achieve great success.

So how do you take action if you are somebody who likes to think and ponder before moving forward? I like to describe this as paralysis by analysis. These individuals think about the positives and negatives of their decision but never take any action to make their goals happen. If you fall into this category, here is a way that you can begin to take action but make your thoughts more productive: Have your thoughts always lean toward taking action. In other words, your thoughts should be on how can I achieve these goals rather than all of the obstacles that are in the way of achieving the goals. Take the “how can I?” approach and not the “I can’t!” attitude. 

For those of you that fall into the take action category but don’t really think too far ahead (that is me), make sure that you are not just busy trying to achieve your goals, etc, but that you are productive. We all have 24 hours in a day. Why is it that some people become so successful while others barely get by? It is not just that they are busy taking action to become successful, but they are productive. They are getting results. If your schedule is filled with all sorts of appointments but you are no further along today than you were a month ago, chances are you have just been busy and not productive. Keep this in mind as you are taking action, is your action taking you closer to accomplishing your goals or moving you further away. That is how you can tell if you are just being busy or being productive.

I hope that you are taking action and are willing to move out of your comfort zone. There is so much more outside of your comfort zone than what lies in it, and your success is so much closer to you than you think. Action is the key to making that happen. If you would like some more tips on how you can take action and what kind of actions that you can take to move closer to the success you want, then click here and I will see you on the other side.

Never worry about what other people think about you again

Do you know someone who is always concerned and worried about what others think about them? Have you ever fallen into that trap?

Recently I was working with a new business owner who I am mentoring, and we were talking about some of his associates that he thought might be interested in an opportunity. He was concerned about what his associates and others would think about him. This prompted me to write this post as I know that there are many other people who struggle with this thought process that is keeping them from succeeding at the highest level.

It is very natural for you to care about what others think about you. It is human nature to want to fit in. The simple fact of the matter is that YOU are the very person who largely can dictate how others view you and think about you. How, you may ask?

Here is the key: People will see you in the very way in which you carry yourself! It’s that simple. If you want to be seen as a shy and timid person, act that way and that is how you will be perceived. If you want to be seen as a confident, outgoing and savvy individual, act that way and that is how you will be treated and thought of. I am not saying that you should try to be someone that you are not, but what I am saying is rather than letting others dictate who you are and being worried about how they view you, show them who you are by how you carry yourself.

Think about the last time that you saw someone who many people respected walk into the room. Would you say that there was a sort of feeling in the air that this individual commanded respect? They probably did not even have to say anything. It was simply how they carried themselves that made people think that this person is a ‘somebody.’

So how do you carry yourself? Do you walk with your head up and a quick pace? Do you offer a firm handshake and look people in the eyes? Do you speak boldly and confidently, loud enough for others to hear you? Or do you walk with your head down at a snail’s pace? Is your handshake and eyes telling others that, “I have no confidence in myself?” Are you speaking low and mumbling so that others are always asking you to repeat yourself? All of this body language speaks volumes to people who are instantly deciding if you are someone that they will want to get to know or follow.

Instead of being concerned about how others think about you, your energy and focus should be on how you carry yourself and the body language that you are giving off. If you want people to see you in a certain way, act that way. Act the way that you want others to think about you!

Tell me how you have overcome worrying about what others think about you.

How to Make Good Decisions

Good decision making is crucial to anyone that wants to achieve success. In the very high-tech world we live in today, there is a battle for your mind. From the pressures of getting the newest cell phones/technology to the tv commercials telling you why you should buy their products,  to the world news attempting to direct you on how to vote, think, etc.we are constantly surrounded by others who want to make decisions for you.

It’s no wonder why so many people fall victim to their own decisions. They have never really had to. It is as if many people are like sheep that just follow one another into the slaughter house and then wonder “how did I end up here?” With the constant battle for our minds, we must understand how to think for ourselves and make the best decisions that can have a positive influence in our lives. We have fallen into the trap of trying to “keep up with the Joneses” (whoever they are) and if my next door neighbor, co-worker, friend, or relative is doing or not doing it, it must be the right thing to do. Those of you who learn how to think for yourself and make quality decisions can save yourself a lot of hard times and heart aches.

I am not proposing that I am an expert in decision making nor do I claim that I have made all of the right decsions. That is very far from the truth! In fact, the reason why I feel that I can write this post is because I have made many bad decisions try  ing to keep up with the rest of society! The key is that I have learned from most of my bad decisions  and more importantly, learned from the process of how I made those bad decisions.

 The way to make a good decision versus a bad decision is not at all complicated. In fact, it can be summed up with one word- VISION.

Vision allows you to look ahead and see things how you want the end result to be not as you see them currently This is not like having psychic powers where you are looking into the future, but you have a clear picture of where you want to be and then make your actions line up in order to get there.

So what does vision have to do with making good decisions you ask? Everything! If you don’t have the vision of where you are going, how can you get there? Furthermore, how can you take the correct actions and take advantage of the law of cause and effect?

Vision allows you to look far enough ahead to see what is coming. By doing this, you can now be proactive instead of reactive. When people are reactive to things it is like being hit by a barrage of punches from Floyd Mayweather. You are powerless and have to take them with no time to adjust.

If you take our slumping economy, bad job market, and high gas prices into account, you can see how the people with vision can avoid the life challenges of the majority. Those folks who have either went into business for themselves or started a home-based business where they can make additional income while maintaining a job, have looked ahead and fixed their leaky roof before it rains. They know what they want (or what they don’t want) and are doing something about it. They are being proactive.

So how about you? Have you been proactive or have you been hit with body blow after body blow from Floyd Mayweather?! After awhile those punches hurt and start to wear you down. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Have you lost your vision for what you want and are now just taking life as it comes? I know how that feels, I have been there. It is a very frustrating feeling to not feel like you have any control over your life or future. The good news is that you can take control of your financial future by making the right decisions. One of the best decisions that I have ever made was to start a home-based business and take control of my financial future so when the economy slumped or the job market dried up, I am able to get water from my well rather than wonder where the well is!

If you have vision of where you want to be for your financial future and are ready to do something about it, then click here and let’s talk!!

To your success!
