Positive Thought

Today I feel compelled to write to you all about the power of positive thought. I will start by explaining what it is and how important it is to keep yourself in a positive thought process. Positive thought is simply just what it sounds like it means. Keep your thoughts positive on all your actions and goals. If you are wanting more money in life don't be thinking about it in the way of "I need more money because I am so broke." or "oh I wish I had more money to pay these bills I'm behind on". Use the power of positive thought in a way that you are seeing yourself already having what you want and knowing that you are there already. The steps to get there seem a lot easier to do and take that way, because really if you are already there then the steps to do it are pretty insignificant anyways. It will drive you through to reach your goal in no time.

Positive thought is important because as they say you are and you get what you think. If you think negatively you get negative things in your life. If you think you can't do something you have already created your limit. If you think something is hard you have already made it that way for yourself. If you think you can succeed in something you will. If you believe you are rich you will be. No one can tell you something you don't accept for yourself.

Now to tell you why I felt so compelled to write this to you. Today I have had an experience with positive thought. Now it may seem like a small experience, but I still see it as a great experience. About 6 months ago or so when winter was starting and it was snowing a lot outside I had gone to work as usual. Between going from 1 building I clean to another I had lost my keys. Now these aren't just any keys, they have my car keys on them, my house keys and also the key to a computer tower I had sold that I do a bit of work on from time to time. As well as a few other things on there of importance to me. Today I stepped in to work where a co worker and I have been actively thinking and looking for them for a while and out of no where on the desk near the door is my set of keys just sitting there. Now when I lost them, I never worried too much because I could see myself with them again, I pictured me having them again and finding them. Over and over I had this image in my head. The cool thing was, it wasn't someone at work that had found them, someone I guess had seen them outside in perhaps a building over from us or whatever and had dropped them outside the door right infront of the door. I would assume they probably got pushed into another business parking lot when snow removal was done, but can you imagine the chances of all that happening?

So anyways keep up the positive thought you never know when it could happen for you. It took almost 6 months for me but I am the one sitting here with my keys now. Good luck to you all and I will be sending out positive thoughts to everyone that they may reach their goals this year and see success in leaps and bounds.

Failing isn't a bad thing anymore

In networking we become rich failing more 97% of the time. I like that school haha. So don't worry if you aren't getting a lot of people interested in what you are doing. It's all in the numbers and if you did your plan right, you may have to adjust it by plugging in more numbers. But as long as you don't quit you will always succeed. 

 If things aren't working fast enough for you, educate yourself on things you can do a little differently. I was told by someone who I look up to in the business I work in that the easiest way to learn how to succeed is to go out and fail on 500-1,000 cold calls. It takes any of the fear you may have about failure and being wrong and throws it out the door. Another good tip is to learn to laugh at yourself and your mistakes, just remember if you don't quit, there is nothing to stop you from succeeding no matter how hard the road to get there is.

Keep movin forward, educate yourself and work on yourself everyday.  Re visit your goals and you why with what you are doing.  A strong why will bring you through anything.  Never listen to the naysayers, instead show them what is possible by doing what you believe in and making it happen.

Dare to dream, then put that dream into action!

Try something new each day

Write your strengths and weaknesses down and work on them each day. Pick something from the list that you feel you are weak at or could use more experience or even something you are afraid of. Then educate yourself on that weakness and grab your faith and belief in yourself together and work on it each day until you are no longer afraid of it or weak at it. They say it takes 3 weeks of doing the same thing over an over again to make it a habit, so don't get discouraged if you don't succeed right away. Keep at it I know you can do it!

Keep it easy

Keep your plan easy. Don't complicate things, the more you complicate the harder it will be to obtain your goals. If you make things really hard then it will be hard on you to keep going and achieving your goals. If you find you are getting stuck a lot maybe take a look at what you are doing and ask yourself if there is an easier way to do what you are doing. Making things easy will help you as well as if you are teaching others to do what you do it will help them believe they themselves can do it too and reach their goals.

Planning for your goals

Once you have your goals established you need to make out a plan. It helps to know where you want to end up and then work backwards on how to get there in small easy steps. It makes it easier to track progress that way and you can make changes as you go if things aren't working out as planned. Being able to track progress is an important part of the process it keeps you motivated and helps you figure out what works and what doesn't. Keeping a type of journal on what you have tried and the results also is a big help. When you write out your steps do it so you can cross them off as you go as well. Seeing your progress getting closer to your goal helps to keep you going and the closer you get to the end the more motivation you should get.

Tip 2

Ever heard of a dream board? Start one using a cork board you can post stuff on. Write a goal down using my step one in your writing and post it on the board. You can also use pictures of a goal if it is a house or vacation somewhere or an item like a bike or car. This keeps everything in visual sight for you and helps to keep you on track to reach your goals. Each day have a look at it which help if you keep it somewhere you are most of the time so you view it each and everyday. You may be surprised one day you may wake up and look at it and realize that you've achieved most if not all of the goals on your board. Try it it works.

Tips I've learnt for reaching your goals

Tip 1 write your goals down on a sheet of paper. Make sure you write them down as you have already acheived them.Eg. I am happy now that I am making $5,000 a month.

What this does is gives you ownership of your goal and gets you thinking in a way that you already have it. Making your goals a reality for yourself makes it much easier to achieve your goals. If you can visualize what your life would be like when you achieve your goals it takes a lot of the stresses and negative thought out that can come up while trying to achieve your goal and making it a reality for yourself.
