How Do You Want To Be Remembered? Leaving A Legacy

I’m a fan of Jack Canfield.  His books like  [Success Principles] may seem a bit fluffy to some, but there’s a wealth of wisdom to be discovered.

On a recent call with Alex Mandossian hosting (as usual), Jack went over some good topics to start the new year off right.

Seems lately that I’ve been hearing the phrase, LIFE IS SHORT, quite a bit.  We’ve all been saying it feels like time is speeding up each year – which may very well be the case if you believe the frequency of the earth has been increasing from 7.8Hz to 13Hz by 2012.

Nevertheless, Jack posed the question, How Do You Want To Be Remembered?  What legacy do you wish to leave for future generations?

Do you want to change and enrich people’s lives?  Do you want to know that because what you did, you enriched another’s life?

Food for thought.  As my subtitle of my blog states, design your life.  Think of how many free days you are going to have instead of how many hours a week or day you plan on working. Self employed entrepreneurs know what I mean.  We don’t have a set schedule like you do in a job.

Yes, I know, thinking of how much time you AREN’T going to work may sound counterproductive and lazy, but really, it’s working smart.

In order to create more free days, you need to avoid burn out while increasing productivity.  Here’s a few ideas that will help:

Meet others outside your field – people can give you new insights, ways of thinking and you’ll be exposed to new opportunities.

Set your goals in an environment away from your home. Why? Because we tend to be habituated in our way of thinking when we are in our usual environment.

We are less likely to think outside the cube.  Did someone say vacation? Seriously, think about how many times you’ve been on a vacation and came back with a whole new perspective on things?  I bet it’s happened more than once or twice.

How To Master What You Do For 2010

Master What You Do

My new year’s Gift to YOU. I’m passing on some inspiring thoughts from some of my teachers. . .

In the book, Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles -he’s always saying to Do Things In A Certain Way.

I’ve translated this to mean MASTER WHAT YOU DO.

Leave everyone you come into contact with, with the IMPRESSION OF INCREASE

Everyone does something well. Start looking for what others do well and bring it to their attention and let them know you notice it. Give them an idea that inspires them.
If you see the best in other people, companies, circumstances – you’ll be in a great vibration and feel good all the time and your whole world will improve.

In other words – make Them feel good because you have come into contact with them.
By leaving each person you meet with the “impression of increase”, you will not only make that person feel better, you will also be enriching your life.

This will, in turn, create an energy that will flow through you towards the person you’re uplifting and it will make you feel better in the process.

Feel empowered to make the other person feel good, because the benefits are endless.

The compensation you get from developing this into your own character, to leave every person with the impression of increase – not talking just money – but everything in your life will grow in abundance.

It’s said you don’t get rich by doing certain things, you get rich by doing things in a certain way. Said another way, you don’t become a real pro in your field by doing certain things, you become a pro by doing them in a certain way – master what you do.

There are laws that govern this universe and you need to understand them – otherwise you’ll just hit and miss – nothing of consequence will come to you.

[thinking end results]

You do not become the best in your field by doing things in a certain way. Be calm and confident. Know who u are.

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It’s the result of long and patient effort in self control – james allen

Self control is a basic quality of leadership.

Before you can do something you first must BE something.

Bring your mind in harmony with the laws that govern your being. You must understand that

  • the thoughts you think control your emotions,
  • and your emotions control the vibration that you body is in
  • so it controls how you act.

If you don’t spend time gaining an understanding of the relationship of the conscious to the subconscious to the body, then you’re dealing on a hit and miss basis.

Life is very short – it can be a phenomenal glorious ride or it can be miserable pile of shit if you don’t understand how to make things happen.

The law says that what you put out comes back. So we just want to put out our very best. It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing.

If you’re going to win you have to be courageous. The opposite of courage is not cowardess,  it’s conformity.

It’s just going along with everybody else. Don’t do that – you’ll end up where they end up. Which is nowhere, struggling to get by.
You want to stand out like a beacon on a dark night.

You want to make certain that you are one of the most effective human beings you could ever be.

You and I become what we think about… Not just the ones we consciously entertain. We become what thoughts we take and internalize – the ones we get emotionally involved in – the thoughts we let control us.

Don’t let others control how you think about things.

You don’t become the best at what you’re doing by doing certain things, you become the best by thinking all the way through to end results. Make it a part of your way of life.

Regardless of what you may have done in the past, you are going to be amazing in 2010.

Make up your mind, today, you’re going to do it better than you’ve ever done it before.
Do it a certain way -the certain way is the best way – – – there’s always a better way. What’s best today isn’t best tomorrow – there’s always a better way tomorrow…

Every day – get better at what you do you and give it everything you have… master what you do.

Your stock will go up – if where you are doesn’t recognize it then there is always someone at the door who is willing to pay you more.

Here’s where a lot of what I said came from : personal development teacher, Bob Proctor.

Oh, and for those of you (you know who you are)… I leave with a final word.

F-O-C-U-S

The Guru You Are Following Is NOT Your Buddy

The ‘Gurus’ are NOT Your Friends.

There. I said it.  Unless you were offline buddies before or have met in person and hung out in a non-business way, the guy you are following, learning from and giving your time and money to is NOT your friend and is not out for your best interests unless it suits his or her interests.

Hopefully, they ARE a good teacher and are giving you something of VALUE in the form of knowledge, skills and training know-how in exchange for your precious time.

The people who are most successful in this business work on themselves [personal development], and are constantlylearning new things.  They aren’t afraid to step up and LEAD.  They have good communication skills and can convey their knowledge to others.

Don’t get me wrong, most of these people aren’t egomaniacal sociopaths out to screw everyone else over – although there ARE plenty of them out here and they can be very hard to spot immediately – hell, I’ve come across a few in my time.  But I digress, most of those who are out here trying to make a better way for themselves and their families are honest, decent, interesting people.

Furthermore, although the internet offers massive leverage of your time, each of us still has just 24 hours in a day to live.  Including the ‘guru’s’ who are being inundated by dozens or 100s or 1000s of people in need of their precious time.

So like I said before, unless you are great buddies with your teacher, ‘online business partner’ , marketing expert, guru, whatever label you slap on it, then don’t get your panties in a bunch when they don’t respond to your email, tweet,  or call right away – or even ever in some cases, when it’s obvious to everyone but you that you are just wasting everybody’s time.

After being in this business for longer than most people, I see how things operate behind the curtain, beneath the hype, etc.

There’s always going to be another ‘PreLaunch’… another revolutionary system that’s going to turn the industry on its head. . . another gotta have tool, system, ebook, insider club to join…

Those who get to ‘print money on command’ or ‘get rich quick’ are the ones who’ve already put in the time and money and have finally positioned themselves as an authority with a faithful following.  That’s why you’ll see people who claim (and it’s often legit) that they made $8750 in 14 hours or some other wild claim.  What you’re not getting is that they spent 3 years building up an Email LIST of several thousand people and 5 or 10% of them took him up on whatever offer he sent out.

Your momma told you if it sounds too good to be true, then it is. What I’m saying is more accurately would be, it may be true, but it’s not the whole true.  There’s the back story that is shoved under the carpet and ignored. Why? Because, the truth isn’t exciting… the truth shows the hard work it took. . . the truth can be ugly and tough.

If you are a successful internet marketer or strive to be one, then you are in SALES… and you have a handle on the psychology of what makes people tick.  What?  They didn’t tell you that?  Well, now you know.

How To Align With Your Source Energy

A wee bit of wisdom for all who find themselves struggling with challenges.

Yes, we live in a Dimension of Dualities and Contrasts.

So why do so many of us find ourselves on the side of duality that does not feel good to us?

One thing is we should stop trying to think our way through it so much and start feeling our way.

Realities of lack, limitation, frustration and pain do exist, but they do not serve us when we focus on them.

When we are in alignment with our Source Energy [Abraham-Hicks], we are in a place that feels like love.

It feels like clarity.

It feels like solutions.

It feels like answers to questions.

It feels like something we’ve been looking for a long time.

It feels GOOD.
