“Every success be it large or small, is proof that you are capable of achieving more successes”. Napoleon Hill made that previous statement in “Think and Grow Rich”. I understood this to mean exacting as it is quoted from “Think and Grow Rich”. You must take the time to appreciate the smaller things in life so that when times are rough you would look back at those small successes.
Success is defined as “the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals.” The “prosperous termination of attempts”, it does not state how many attempts were made just that you achieved your goals. When you are trying to make that first dollar online and you achieve that goal why did you not celebrate it. Sam Cooke sang that “change is gonna come” and one thing that you can be sure is that you can never have highs without lows.
I think that most people focus on the big picture of success so when the little successes arrives that person tends to ignore them. “You can recall it when you begin to lose faith in yourself”Napoleon Hill’s “think and Grow Rich”. One thing you know is that when the small successes is few and far between you will want to quit. I remember many years ago when a new business was opened the owner use to keep the first dollar that he or she made. The owner would tape it to the wall as a reminder that the journey was started.
I have learn that it is better to celebrate the small accomplishment so that the large successes will be appreciated even more. This might be the difference between quitting or continue towards your goals. Celebrating small successes is sometimes very difficult for people that are not accustom to being successful.
P.S Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can, and finish what you start
Working from home have all the obvious benefits, but these benefits are not fully realize until you progress in the right direction. One of these benefits includes being able to spend more time with your family. The truth of the matter is that we normally work for a company that we give up time with our family for money. You might never see your kids when you are in pursuit of that all mighty dollar. When you work from home you are able to set your own schedule and dictate how, when and where you spend your time. It is a very powerful feeling not to have to wake early in the morning to head to a business that you do not own or share in the riches. When you work from home you enjoy this great benefit.
When you work from home you determine how much you can possibly make on an annual basis. When is the last time you went to your boss and told him I want you to pay me double my income next year . He would probably laugh you out of his office. He would whisper under his breath, I am not making that amount myself why would I pay that insane amount to you. You truly write your paycheck when you are CEO of your entrepreneurial business. I am just discussing two of these benefits that comes from working from home. The truth is that you may write your own paycheck, but if you don’t treat your business like a business and not a hobby you will always get menial results.
You must put the time in necessary in the initial phase of your work from home business, before you may truly reap the benefits. When you wake up in the morning you must have a Modus Operandi(M.O.D), normally this term is associated with criminals. It actually just means that you must perform income generating activities for your business on a daily basis. You must know the difference between wasting time and doing something productive. It is one thing for Facebook to be one of your marketing strategies and another to just play Words with Friends all day long.
You may have the ability to spend a multitude of time with your family, but you don’t have regular income stream coming in it will be a miserable time. You must prioritize and manage your time accordingly. The worse thing you could do to your family is be there with them physically, but not mentally. When your mind is elsewhere they is no doubt that family time will become less and less thereby defeating the purpose of working from home.
What are some other benefits of working from home leave me some comments below?

Zig Ziglar stated in See you at the Top that Education and intelligence is not the same thing
Zig Ziglar in his book “See you at The Top” talks about education vs. intelligence and which one is more important. Zig states that ” three of the most intelligent and success people I know finished the 3rd, 5th and 8th grades.” He was talking about Henry Ford and Thomas J. Watson were two of the three. Henry Ford legacy is still going on today. Henry Ford believed that if he needed anything beyond his capacity he would hire that person. He knew his strengths and weaknesses and was not ashamed to get someone who knew the answer. He also knew how to get what he needed out of his “people”. Watson was the “founder of IBM and he went from a $6.00 a week salesman to chairman of the board”. The American dream at it finest. The difference between these two and the “average” guy is that they were dedicated. The “formal” education was not necessary for these highly successful people. It was the intelligence and the will to never quit that made them successful.
When I was growing up I was told to go to school and complete your education. I would then go to work for a company for twenty-five to thirty years and then retire and live happily ever after. I know that scenario sound familiar to many people. I follow that path for many years but, then I realized that it was not the life for me. When I had that awakening I have always been on alert for the opportunity that would help me succeed. I don’t believe in jumping on the next shiny object that catches my eye. I follow opportunities that I feel good about.
If you missed gold nugget #4 which deals specifically about the fact “you cannot consistently perform in a manner that is inconsistent with the way you see yourself”.
Education is one thing, but intelligence is totally something else all together. My formal degree is Electrical Engineering, my real education I imagine would not begin until after I read my last Engineering book. It would be the hands on knowledge that would make me a successful engineer. My first degree is Electrical Engineering , I have never held a position with that title. I can only speculate that how it would be in my life since everything else I do is actually like that.
Zig Ziglar believe that intelligence is not required to be successful. He state success is in the hands of the person who is trying to achieve it. It is only necessary like Napoleon Hill’s stated that he has a burning desire towards the achievement of his or her goals and dreams.
Napoleon Hill writes in “Law of Success in Fifteen Lessons” Enthusiasm is a “vital moving force that impels action” and Self control is the “balance wheel that directs your action so that it will build up and not tear down.” Self control is compared to a balance wheel which is a key component of mechanical watches. It is very important that it returns to its original position. When we are not in control of our action it is most likely that we will be lead astray. Enthusiasm is contagious you may pass it on to the next person easily. Have you either watch a person who was so on fire that you found your self getting emotionally charged. You were ready to do whatever the person wanted you to do at the time. When the person left how did you keep that enthused feeling up. The odds are you did not, because it may have passed on without difficult.
Self control is the most important trait that you must possess when you are trying to stay on track. The track is never cleared of obstacles, but controlling one’s self allow your goals and dreams to come true. When you continue to struggle daily in your business and your goals never come to fruition. The desire to give up is a daily demon and it is very easy to give up. the worse enemy that we face on a daily basis is the negativity between our ears. The self defeating, self defecating and mental vomit that we feed ourselves on a regular basis.
The more control that you have over the space between the ears the greater the opportunity that you will succeed in your life, business and relationship. It does not a strong belief in the Law of Attraction that “if you belief that you can’t that it is so”. I have been in and around selling for most of my life and one thing I know is that if you believe that that person will not buy from you, it is no surprise when they don’t. I am not saying that you will sell everyone that you present your product or services to, but if you don’t have self-control. No sale. Self control is the key to continue your journey to become successful.
I have been in the marketing my business online for many years. I have always been the one who never went to the Live Events. I thought the live events were not important because I “work from home”. The funny part is that live events are absolutely necessary to take your business to the next level.
My mentor have always told me that going to the Live Events is not an option, but a requirement. His explanation was that until I go to Live Events my online marketing business would be a hobby and not a real business. I have put off that tasks off for over 5 years and when Empower Network was coming to Orlando for a Regional Event I knew I could not miss that one. I had to make a few plans to make it happen, but I knew in the end it would be worth it. I did not go with a preconception of what was going to happen. I just went with an open mind and a blank page.
I was immediately inflicted with the energy of the room. When you have that many like minded individuals in one room it is very easy to be drawn into the power of the mastermind. The synergy of the room is dynamic and gets stronger by the minute. There were a unique variation of people at the live event. The power of that mastermind matters because once you go back to the “real world” it is that experience that will empower you.
Live Events make you realize that there is no time like too present to get off your butt and go to work. You are looking at people on stage saying to yourself that if he or she can do it I know without a doubt that I can do it.Rhoda Swan talked about the vow that she made to her daughter and doing everything in her power to never break that promise. When you hear about that type of commitment and dedication, it is very difficult to not get overfilled with enthusiasm. As I discussed in my blog earlier Enthusiasm is a “vital moving force that impels action”. John Levenia discussed the acronym “I.A.S.M” which stands for “I am sold myself” and coincidentally is the last four letters of the word enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is contagious, but it is self-control that will take your business to the next level.
I have taken a complete one eighty on my opinion about Live Events. These events are truly the rejuvenation that is necessary to keep you on point in your work from home business. When you work from home, it is easy to get tunnel vision. You are only aware of your daily mode of operandi and nothing else. It is much better to be in a room when joint venture, friendships, and ideas could develop. I have now made a commitment to make as many Live Events as possible.
I am digging up more and more golden nuggets as I continue to read Zig Ziglar’s “See You at The Top”. I know that most of you reading this blog post have heard about the term faking it until you make it. This is not the fourth gold nugget that I picked up from Zig Ziglar’s “See You at The Top”. The actual nugget is “you cannot consistently perform in a manner that is inconsistent with the way you see yourself”. This ties into to faking it til you make it. When I first heard this term it was mostly dealing with outward appearance. If you dress to impress, then people will take you more seriously. If you want to be successful,then you must dress, act and carry yourself as if you are successful right now. What if it takes a while before you are a success? It is inevitable that disaster will happen when your mind catches on to what you are doing before you achieve your dream. You will either continue on your path to success or you will quit. Whatever the mind can conceive you can achieve. It is like you are racing against your mind to avoid a major setback.
You can pretend that you are successful, but how long can you truly fool yourself. Zig Ziglar believe that you can fool yourself for the short term. It is the long term that all the chinks will appear in your armor. If you truly do not believe that you are successful, then it will never happen for you. Micheal Jordan is a man who consistently believe in himself and his abilities. When he was cut from the team as a kid he did not give up he practiced even more. He knew deep down that he saw himself as a champion and he consistently perform in that manner as a profession in the N.B.A. Imagine when he was cut from the team and he believed deep down in what the coaches were saying. The outcome would have totally different, because he might have practiced, but he never deem himself worthy of being a champion. Micheal Jordan’s self image was stronger that many of his opponents when he played in the NBA. He imposed his will on many players to defeat them mentally as well as physically. Your self image has to be strong enough for however long it takes to achieve success in your life, relationship and business.
To learn the real Secret to Success read my blog post.
It is amazing how much the little things in your life, relationships and business really matters . I was witnessed this week to the final part of three seemingly insignificant events that made a dramatic change in my friend’s life. We might think that the little things does not matter, but in reality little things are more important than the big picture. The saying goes that we must stop and smell the roses. We stand from afar and admire the beauty of the rose, but how often do we stop to truly appreciate it up close. The answer is not usually.
When I think of how this relates to my business it all about “modi operandi” that is the key to my business success. If you treat your business like a “hobby” then guess what it will continue to be. It is about the little things that we do everyday to propel our businesses forward. Are you marketing, advertising and developing strategies daily in your business? If not it is not too late to begin. You may directs, contain and utilize the power of water, but you may never control or destroy it. A continuous stream of water could destroy the biggest rock over time. It might not happen for one, five or fifty but rest assure it will happen. How could doing the little things impact your life and relationships?
If you don’t believe that it is the little things stop reading this post and send your love one an unexpected appreciative “love note”. The reaction that you will receive will be surprising. This note of gratitude will not only benefit your loved one, but will also benefit you also. The series of little things is what make a great relationship. When your significant other is complaining about you leaving the toilet seat up is it really about the toilet seat of something deeper that is bothering her. As men we are late to pick up on these little “subtleties” that will snowball into an avalanche that will bury us.
The quicker that we pick up on these little “disagreements” the sooner we can work on finding the “solution”. I have placed solution in quotation, because that is a whole new discussion about men and women differences. It has come to me time and time again that it is the little things that make your life, relationship and business better. This week I want you to focus on the little things, then give me some feedback.
Napoleon Hill’s The Law of Success in Fifteen Lesson revisits the habit of doing more than paid for, which was first introduced in “Think and Grow Rich”. When I first read about this concept I saw it in a totally different light. When I write my blog articles I always let them sit for a day or so. I don’t know what it is, but for some reason I always revised it to reflect my feelings at that moment. It should be no big surprise that as I read an article that I wrote on this same topic back in June, 2009 I am feeling differently about it. The act doing more than is ask is the key to sending the right vibe out into the Universe. If you send out positive vibes, then you would receive positive vibes in return.
It is like you are building a favor chest that will overflow the more you do thing without expecting something in return. It is not only about doing more than is expected of you, but doing it without waiting for something in return. Napoleon Hill has a way of getting to the crux of the matter without hesitation. For example, I was listening to my daily morning show the other day and Steve Harvey was using the example of a neighbor borrowing sugar to get his point across. A new neighbor comes on day one to ask for a bowl of sugar, you would probably give it to him the sugar without hesitation. The neighbor leave without a simple thank you. The neighbor comes day two and the same thing happens, no thank you again. How do you react on day three when the neighbor appears at your door?
If you are in the habit of doing more than you are paid you would give the neighbor the sugar. If you are like the average person in the world, you might give the sugar but not without a barrage of choice words. There is no wrong way to respond to this attitude of ingratitude. The question is when do you stop being taken advantage of. When I managed restaurants back in the early part of my career, I learned a few critical lessons. You always will encounter people who want something for nothing. It is how you react to these “freeloaders” that matters. If you assume that everyone is like that then you will become jaded. You will look at every customer complaint as someone looking for a free meal. I treated each situation on a case by case basis, because I realized that these “freeloaders” only accounted for a small percentage of our business. I was in the habit of doing more than you are paid, so my decision was easy.
P.S. There are some crucial character traits that you need to succeed and they are initiative and leadership. Napoleon gets very deep into this subject in Law of Success in Fifteen Lesson. Read my thoughts on this topic here
