Beware of Dream Stealers

Although your own internal talk is the most important, you will occasionally need to seek external feedback on your progress toward your goals. When you do, be sure it is from people who are truly interested in seeing you succeed.
Don’t seek feedback from fair-weather friends, competitive peers, or any person who doesn’t have your best interests at heart. Neutral doesn’t count. Get feedback from someone who is on your side but will still be objective and honest with you.
I’ve seen it time and again that misery truly does love company. Jealousy creates some of the most miserable people I know. Surpass the achievements of your particular social crowd or your business colleagues, and look out for the slings and arrows of those who wish you were back where they are. You have to dodge the snide remarks and catty comments. Let them roll right off you. Don’t internalize them.
Only pay attention to feedback from those who have similar goals or who are working actively alongside you to achieve goals of their own. Motives and fears run deep. Study them in others. The sympathetic fair-weather friend who supports you and comforts you when you’re down, may like you best when you are in just that state: down and dependent.
Ultimately, nobody else is responsible for your life but you. Nobody else is accountable for your actions but you. Therefore, nobody’s expectations for you and opinions about you are as important as your own. So make sure those take precedence in your mind over all others, and if you do need to consult with someone else, think very carefully before you choose exactly who.
Equally important, be prepared to sell your ideas to an indifferent world. As passionate as you are about your business and the fact that your products and services will have positive, life-changing benefits to everyone you meet, you are going to find resistance every time you tell your story.
People are most interested in their own dreams and goals. They have difficulty believing that you have found a better way than they have to reach them. They are suspicious and guarded when anyone tries to sell them or change their minds. Rather than have others steal your dreams by raining on them, ask questions and find out about their dreams before you launch into your sermon. People buy what they want first, then what they need. Find what turns them on. It may not be what turns you on. By helping others get what they want, you’ll get what you want too!

The Habits of Success and Simple actions to get there


The Habits of Success and The simple actions to get there

Develop and reinforce these five habits of success.  When you do, you will not have to make new decisions every morning. You instinctively know what you are going to do and how you are going to do it!

1. The habit of POSITIVE THINKING!
Successful people have simply formed the habit of doing what failures
do not like to do and will not do: they think positively! 
They have the habit of expecting to win, the habit of planning to win,
 the habit of working to win . . . and they win!
2. The habit of PROSPECTING!
Develop this habit and you will have prospects everywhere and
you will have an endless supply of Class–A leads.
3. The habit of CALLING ON PEOPLE!
This makes selling fun and exciting — and fruitful!
4. The habit of SELLING!
Use a system or sales presentation. Follow it to a “T”!
It will make you a skilled communicator, a person who speaks
with emotion and conviction.
5. The habit of WORKING!
Work is a privilege! Work is a joy! It is one of the most exciting things you can do.
 When you get results, it pumps your adrenalin,
gives you more energy, and multiplies more results!

How do you acquire these habits?
You simply decide that the opportunity of presenting is a service is worth doing!
Determine ahead of time the personal goals you
 can achieve for success in this business!
Be confident that you have the ability to change or to do
whatever it takes to get the job done!
Enter into it without giving mental recognition to the
 possibility of defeat!
Live each day with positive expectancy!
Stick to the basics and the fundamentals!

The fact is that living the life of your dreams is possible.
People prove that every day. Someone somewhere is going to get rich,
 get healthy and improve their life.

My recommendation is this: Let it be you!
So what are the Simple actions you ask.
Here they are...

The first and most important is to make a commitment to work on yourself.
 Are you going to improve or stay the same? No matter what you have achieved,
you are at a certain point right now. What you have achieved in the past is fine,
but it doesn’t make a difference for the future. The decision about what you will
become is made each day and every day. Each day someone is making
 the decision to better him or herself. Let that person be you!

The second is to make a plan.
 Once you have decided to become better you will have to have a plan.
It doesn’t have to be a long, intricate plan. It can be simple. Save a dollar a day.
Walk a mile a day. Read an article a day. That is a simple plan with achievable goals. 
Someone is going to develop a plan that will take them into the future of their dreams.
Let it be you!

The third is to begin to act.
All of the great ideas, without action, become stale and useless.
The key to turning dreams into reality is action.
People who have great ideas are a dime a dozen.
People who act on their dreams and ideas are the select few,
but they are the ones who gain the wealth, wealth and wisdom that is available.
Someone will act today.
Let it be you.

My encouragement to you is to stop looking at others who live the good life,
wishing that you were as well, and instead begin to commit to your improvement,
develop a plan and act on it.
Someone is going to.

Let it be you!
