A Tale of Two Beggars

As each new day begins in most bustling cities across the globe, people engage in the daily activities to carry out our daily lives.

But just beneath that familiar veneer lies a darker world that many of us choose not to see as we go about our days. I’m talking of course, about the people on our streets.

This is a HUGE lesson for entrepreneurs.

The Tale of Two Beggars

There were once two beggars on opposite corners of the street.

The first of the men sat on the corner, looking disheveled, dressed in ragged clothes and with an old threadbare blanket covering his legs. 

Upon closer inspection he wears dog tags from his service in the Vietnam war. He barely moved, begging courteously for anything he could get.

On the opposite corner, the other beggar would beg in the morning, then go and use his money to buy cheap and flashy goods that he could resell in the afternoon.

At the end of each day that beggar walks away from his corner, with his pockets full of cash, to the nearby parking garage to drive home with his days earnings.

Our first beggar stays till the streets until late at night. He struggles to get up and walks with a very pronounced limp to the nearby homeless shelter for a meal.

He barely remembers his life before going to Vietnam. His platoon of soldiers are all gone now. He catches glimpses of them in his dreams.

Sometimes, he thinks he sees them on the streets as he’s begging for enough for a cup of coffee.

The Moral of the Story

At first glance two characters can seem much the same, but just by digging a little deeper you can find a completely different story.

Which would you rather have helped now? The beggar who is just making extra money for himself but actually has a home, or the war veteran who has been forgotten?

The same is true in our businesses. Often we will just see what’s on the surface.

In our online business we want to get everything across in that first glance.

Social media is also causing people to change how they interact online. 10 years ago all it took were keywords and flashy graphics to reach people. 

Now people are looking for authenticity and substance. People do business with those who they know, like, and trust. 

Don’t judge a book by its cover and don’t think others won’t eventually see what’s under yours.

Always seek conversations over conversions. You'll find that you will make a more powerful impact with people.

Do You Practice Brendon Burchard’s 6 High Performance Habits

Have you ever wondered what are the most important habits to have success in your business? In today's training you'll learn from Brendon Burchard 6 high performance habits that will help you.

Who is Brendon Burchard?

Brendon Burchard is a best selling author, coach, and trainer. His career in personal development started after a car accident. At age 27, he left his Corporate America job to pursue his dreams of being a writer.

He was written the #1 best selling books The ChargeMotivation ManifestoThe Millionaire Messenger, and Life's Golden Ticket.

6 High Performance Habits

The purpose of Brendon's book High Performance Habits was to answer three questions:

  • Why is it some people succeed faster than others?
  • Why is it that some people do that and are happy?
  • What motivates people to want to change and what habits make it stick?

He then did a study of high performers and came across 6 high performance habits that were related to success. Watch the short video below to learn the high performance habits.

Habit #1: Clarity

High performers spend 74 minutes/week planning their days. They craft a vision for themselves centering around four key questions.

  • How would you love to describe yourself?
  • How would you behave socially?
  • What are the skills do you need to develop and demonstrate?
  • What service do you want to provide

At the end of the day they review these questions to determine what they did well during the day and what would they do differently tomorrow.

Habit #2: Generate Energy

While most people feel wiped out between 2-3 PM in the afternoon, successful people have learned to manage their transitions. They find time to rest and relax throughout the day.

Brendon recommends that you spend 40-60 minutes/day relaxing. This can involve exercise and/or meditation.

Habit #3: Raise Necessity

One of the most important high performance habits is to understand “WHY”. Why is it important you are to do well?

Some guiding questions to ask yourself are:

  • Whom are you doing this for?
  • Who needs me to be on my A game right now?

Habit #4: Increase Productivity

The fourth habit of high performers is they realize that the main thing is the main thing. They don't let distractions get in the way by focusing only on the steps that are important.

That's why having clarity is so important is it gives you focus.

Habit #5: Develop Influence

High performers not only love to learn but they teach and share what they've learned to challenge others around them how to think and to grow.

If you can impact someone’s life and thinking in a positive way, then you are an influencer.

Habit #6: Demonstrate Courage

During times of stress or uncertainty, high performers recognize and honor the strength in the struggle.  That's why they don't complain about the hard times that come, but understand it's part of the process.

They are not afraid to share who they are and what they stand for.

Leap and the Net Will Appear

In today's training you'll learn a unique perspective from my mentor Diane Hochman on the phrase “leap and the net will appear.” If you're looking at making a big decision when it comes to your home business, this will help you.

Make sure you share this with your team.

Leap and the Net Will Appear

Are you facing a big decision in your business? Maybe right now in your business you are facing a decision in your business where you need to make an investment in training or coaching/or attending a live event.

Do you feel like you had one foot in the air, one foot on the ground, and a queasy feeling in the stomach? 

I sure have! There were times when I took the leap of faith and reaped the rewards of taking action.

And there were times when I took the leap, and the net never appeared at the time I wanted it to.

As a result, the second thoughts would creep in. 

My friend and mentor Diane Hochman shared a unique perspective. It all came comes down to alignment.

Before you take the leap of faith you need to be aligned to your vision.  Listen to the audio below where Diane shares more on leap and the net will appear.

How to Unleash Your Prosperity Consciousness

Ever wonder why some people prosper at everything they do, while others continue to struggle? In today's training you'll learn how to raise your prosperity consciousness.

Make sure you share this with your team as this will help them too.

What is Prosperity Consciousness?

Most people equate prosperity to the homes, vacations, clothes, and cars. So, when they start a home business, what do they do?

They flash the cash, fancy cars, jewelry, and homes in their Facebook status updates in the attempt to get people to join their business. The sad fact becomes they don't make any money at all.

Why?

Because they are focusing their business on TAKING people's money rather than coming from a position of serving and helping people solve their problems.

My good friend and mentor Diane Hochman taught me that home business success doesn't come from the latest and hottest marketing strategy.

It's how you treat PEOPLE.  This was one of the greatest lessons she ever learned from her mentor, Joe Schroeder.

Listen to the audio below where Diane shares how to raise your prosperity consciousness.

3 Step Goal Setting Plan to Give You Lasting Results

Did you set goals but feel overwhelmed at getting started and staying consistent? Here is a 3 step goal setting plan to give you lasting results.

Make sure you share this with your team as this will help them as well. 

3 Step Goal Setting Plan

Has this ever happened to you? You set goals for your business and make them time bound and measurable.

You then create a plan to achieve them, but then the minute to take action it becomes a dead end. Nothing seems to work.

Everything that can go wrong does go wrong. You then get frustrated and give up on your goal.

I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me. Then I read Jeff Olson's book The Slight Edge where he shares a simple goal setting plan that not only gets you started but keeps you consistent.

The big takeaway for me from this book was the first plan you create doesn't get you to your final destination. Rather, it's the starting point.

Once you get started, you will have doors close, but you will be on the lookout for those other doors opening up before you. Skeptical, I implemented this goal setting plan and I was AMAZED by the results.

I was able to get more done in less time with my business, get more leads, reps, and customers on a consistent basis. Best part is, I went from serial procrastinator talking about what I was going to do, to producer.

Watch the video below where I outline this plan and how easy it is to do, and how easy it is NOT to do. The choice is yours.
