Gold Nugget #2: Neglected Mind Will Bring Forth No Seed from As A Man Thinketh

Filed under: Book Reviews and Insight,Personal Development,Self Empowerment — Tags: , — Shirland Carrington @ 8:54 am

A neglected mind will bring forth no seed without a doubt. The saying goes that you reap what you sow. The biggest mistake you could make is thinking you are going to get something out of nothing. “A man’s mind may be likened to a garden which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild;” from “As a Man Thinketh“. When your lawn is full of weeds, the less weeds you pull the worse your lawn would look. You would never be able to keep your garden free of weeds and maintain a healthy soil that is conducive for a beautiful garden at that pace. It is extremely critical that you follow all the necessary guidelines to maintain your lawn.

Personal development is one of the best way to prepare your mind for whatever your goals or dreams that you are trying to achieve. It is who you become in the journey that matters. The lotto winner that wins millions , but is financially broke in a few short years. Who did that lotto winner become in picking the winning number?

The lotto winner goal every time he or she played they favorite lotto numbers was to win the lotto. The only requirement that necessary was to make sure that you had a ticket in each lottery drawing. If you missed a drawing you might have a little stress, but once the numbers were drawn the stress goes away. The only thing you would learn is to make sure you played your numbers in a timely manner. Once the person wins the lotto how did they changed in the journey. The answer is not much, so it is no surprise when the money is gone in a short time. When you are committed to accomplishing your goals and dreams, every setback is an opportunity for a learning experience.
The difference between when a lotto player misses a lotto drawing and when you make a misstep in your business is substantial. The lotto player learns nothing while you can learn, adjust and correct your journey in accomplishing your goals and dreams. The more your mind is cultivated in preparing for success the better. The lawn of an abandon home is not as well manicured as one that is getting proper water, fertilizer, mowing and weed control.

P.S.  Your personal development is key component in achieving your goals and dream if you couple it with a mastermind group the sky is the limit for your achievement.

Gold Nuggets The Key Traits You Must Have To Be Successful from The Go Getter

Filed under: Personal Development,Self Empowerment — Tags: — Shirland Carrington @ 9:05 am

“Go Getter” by Peter B. Kyne is by far the shortest personal development book that I have ever read. You can still get some great gold nuggets from this book. The main points of this book is narrated throughout the entire forty five pages of the book. The point is simply that you should never, never give up on your goals and dreams. The “blue vase” that the Bill Peck searched for is the equivalent to the hopes and dreams that we want to achieve and realize in our lives.

Bill Peck was determined to find that “blue vase” no matter what obstacles came his way. You must be determine to achieve your goals no matter what kind of torpedoes oppose you on the way. If you stop following your dreams, then you will become just like the 95% of the people who fail. The people who fail are the ones that let life go by without attempting anything. The “Bill Peck” of the world keep going and going and moving towards his goals and dreams.

Bill Peck kept relying on his principles and will to keep on going and never giving up. He does not know what the “gold” he will get at the end of the rainbow. He only focused achieving it. Bill Peck with his “disabilities” represent the small percentage of people who become successful. It is amazing that what we may consider his short comings is actual his strength. He had the “disability” to never quit while the “normal” people quit and move on to the next shiny object. The normal people with their “ability” are the ones who are lacking in every aspect of their lives and are doomed to fail. Bill PecK did not let any thing deter him from achieving his objective. The name change of the store from Cohen to Cohn would have stop a many people in their tracks. He acknowledged that the name was different he just made more phone calls. Bill Peck kept going even though he faced obstacles after obstacles. At what point would you have quit or are you a “go-getter”?

 

The decision is in you hands the question is Which wolf do you feed?

Action Cures Fear Golden Nuggets from The Magic of Thinking Big

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , , — Shirland Carrington @ 7:34 am

Action cures fear is another great golden nugget that I evacuated from “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David J. Schwartz.  When you were a child and you were learning to ride a bike.  You would never learn to ride unless you get into motion.  The bicycle is build to ride, but until you get on the seat and pedal the bike is useless.

When we are learning something new we goes through a process where we have no clue until we do it without thinking.  For example, travelling on your way from work to home is done on autopilot.  This concept applies to learning to ride a bicycle,  but until you get on the bike and pedal nothing is accomplished.  When we initially start riding a bike we fell down a few times, because of the awkwardness of trying to keep our balance.  When we became more familiar with and accustom to riding and keeping our balance then riding a bike was easy.

When we get on a bike to go for a ride it is no longer necessary to think about it. We vaguely remember how difficult it was to learn originally.  The saying goes that once you learn how to ride a bike you never forget.  It all starting with action.  If you never got on that bike, then you would never have the opportunity to stay in shape, ride through the park and enjoy mother nature or just simply getting from point A to point B.   The fear of riding was overcome by applying action.  Inaction fertilize indecision and postponement.

If you postponed sitting on the bike and never attempted to learn how to ride.  You would miss out on one of the most gratifying experience in life.  When we are paralyzed with fear many experiences in our lives would be lacking.  “Truly fear is a powerful force” and succumbing to it on a regular basis could make for a difficult life.  Fear prevent most people from truly getting what they want in life.  Fear accounts for why many people achieve little and enjoy little.  You must get past the fear and go after your goals and dreams.

Why is desire the first step to riches in your home internet business opportunity?

Think Success, Don’t Think Failure Golden Nuggets from The Magic of Thinking Big

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , , — Shirland Carrington @ 9:13 am

I am currently reading The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz.  This book is no different than all the motivational books that I have read. I am always getting Golden Nuggets from these books.  Think success and don’t think failure is the one that stick out to me in the first few pages of this book.  It is amazing that when think we will excel in something we do.  It is also equally amazing that when we think we will fail, we do.  The story of the little engine who thought he could and did.  The little engine did not have negative thoughts as it tried to go up the hill.  When you look at your life think of possible accomplishments that you sabotaged within the first minute of utterance from your mouth.

When you are faced with a challenge you automatically formulate in our mind whether you will succeed or not.  When your boss at work say to you I want you to run your Division next week in a split second your mind accept or reject that you will or will not be a success. When we continuously have a self defeating and lack of confidence in ourselves,  we should not be surprise about the outcome.  The sad part is that soon failure becomes our mantra and everyday life.  It is better to have an “I can” attitude over an “I can’t” attitude any day of the week.  When you mind is not right and is filled with weed there is no way you will get the healthy soil of positive thoughts to grow there.  The weeds will overtake the positive thoughts every time.   When you think failure guess what kind of results occur on a regular basis.  “Let the master thought of I will succeed dominate your thinking process.” and you will win every time.

Zig Ziglar in “See You at The Top” calls it “stinking thinking” and they is no doubt what he is trying to get across to the reader.  Zig Ziglar believed “you cannot consistently perform in a manner that is inconsistent with the way you see yourself“.You might think that thinking positive might not give you the ability to be Micheal Jordan one on one in Basketball, but at least thinking positively you would definitely score more points against him.  A journey of 1000 miles starts with the first step so starting today start using positive words such as “I can”,  “I will”, “I can do it” and “I am equal to the best”.

P.s Please comment below and leave more positive words to live by.  To find out more about my personal business visit http://realcashmade.com to learn more.

Success Large and Small is Proof That You Can Achieve More

Filed under: Personal Development,Self Empowerment — Tags: , , , — Shirland Carrington @ 8:15 am

“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

Two Work From Home’s Benefits That Could Destroy Your Business if Not Taken Seriously

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , — Shirland Carrington @ 8:29 am

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?

P.S. Read my blog post on why thoughts determines your destiny.  You may have positive or negative thoughts but no matter what your future is written.  The vibe that you send out is matched and sometimes re-calibrated ten fold.

If you don’t have a an opportunity and would like find one watch the video and make real cash.

Golden Nuggets #5: Education and Intelligence is Not The Same Thing Zig Ziglar See You at The Top

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , , , — Shirland Carrington @ 8:20 am

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’s Law of Success Lesson #7: Self- Control is The Balance Wheel That Directs Your Action

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.

Live Events Are Critical to Your Success in Your Home Business Opportunity

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , — Shirland Carrington @ 11:00 am

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.

Gold Nuggets #4 From Zig Ziglar “See You At The Top”

Filed under: Personal Development,Self Empowerment — Tags: , , — Shirland Carrington @ 8:55 am

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.
