What You Owe To The World

frank-mckenna-252908

Have you ever found yourself in a moment of self-reflection thinking about your contribution to the world? No? OK, me neither.

 

But in all seriousness, I strongly believe that we are all endowed with a gift to give to this world. It’s up to us to find, understand, develop, and deliver that gift. In order to execute on that gift it is crucial that we learn how to Master The Power Within.

There is a realization that you and I must come to. It is one that will likely require us to visit the altar of sacrifice a time or two and perhaps even make some hefty deposits of sub-par self-attributes while at that altar.

If we fail to make this realization we will find ourselves falling short of what we could be. We will not live up to our potential. In fact we may sound like those that Henry David Thoreau described in the enduring book entitled Walden , “Millions are awake enough for physical labor; but only one in a million is awake enough for effective intellectual exertion, only one in a hundred millions to a poetic or divine life. To be awake is to be alive.”

Blue elegant gift boxI hope to “Awake” you, at least in this matter, to illustrate What You Owe To The World. When I attended Brandon Broadwater’s 3 Day Event, “Master Your Power Within” I found out how to fully live up to my potential, and give my gift to the world.

If you are in a production based role such as sales, or entrepreneurship. Perhaps you may be a salaried employee, you will find that fulfilling this obligation I speak of will not only enrich the world, but it will enrich your career, relationships, financial standing, and mission in life.

You see, I used to set goals based off of income targets I wanted to hit, or number of products sold, or to win a competition. During that process I certainly attained skills of influence as it relates to sales, and customer interaction. That lead me to achieve a level of success, however I felt bereft of purpose and meaning. I would achieve my goals only to find myself at the mountaintop of success thinking, “Is this all there is?” Or, I would be feeling what Tony Robbins describes as “the ultimate failure.” When he says, “success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.”

Have you ever found yourself setting goals, perhaps even achieving them, and still finding yourself unfulfilled? Why is that?

Perhaps your journey may take you to where our paths meet. Maybe it will be on a Personal Results Coaching Session, or maybe at a live event where you can find what it takes to create that fulfillment and come to the realization we have been speaking about here.

Can I let you in on a secret?

I found that if I give my gift to the world just to make a paycheck, achieve a status, or hit a production quota; my production, contribution, or business will forever remain small and incomplete. If I can’t find a way to deliver that gift to the world, my spiritual, mental, emotional, relationship, and business aspects of my life will be forever stunted in their growth potential. However, if you and I realize this one thing, it can change it all. This one thing can truly be the game changer that sets us free.

What is that one thing?

Mastering Your Power Within.

You and I must give our gift to the world because that is who we are deep down inside. It is who we were meant to be. It is what we were placed on this planet to do, at this specific time. For it is the unconquerable spirit inside us that gives us the understanding, the courage, and the divine attributes that elevate us to the “Poetic or divine life” that Thoreau spoke of.

I don’t know of a single person who doesn’t have some sort of great aspiration. Perhaps in our youthful endeavors we identified the firefighters, dancers, astronauts, princesses, policemen, or professional athletes. However, most of us do not grow up to be in one of those lines of work. Instead, as we grow older we find ourselves focusing on the benefits package of our chosen profession. We may focus on the internal politics of getting promoted. Or seek the status of being a business owner or entrepreneur. But what we fail to see, feel, hear, and know is that aspiration we once sought for so strongly.

So how do we stop getting hung up on the minutia and the ancillary baggage that a profession, career, or business comes inherently with?

How do we start achieving our goals, not just to make a paycheck, achieve a certain status, or win a competition?

You and I start by Mastering Our Power Within.

What does that look or sound like?

It starts by doing and achieving our goals because that is who we are meant to be. You become the top sales rep in your organization because that is who you are. Maybe you become the best employee because that is what you are meant to do. Perhaps you become an entrepreneur to create lasting impact on your business community.

We become our best, and give our all because that is who we are as people. That is what we owe to the world, that is what we are placed on this planet to do.

As Thorough said, “It is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look . . . To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts. Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details, worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour.

When we make the shift from doing the things in our life for the cash, status, or some burdensome obligation we start to see captivating changes in our lives.

Are you cool with me giving you a sneak peek into what some of those changes may look like?

When you Master Your Power Within, I can tell you what is going to happen. I can promise you in fact, that you will find that you achieve your goals almost effortlessly. The stress that you felt before will melt away. You will find an inner congruence and alignment that was lacking previously. Roadblocks in your life turn into mere speed bumps. You will see the burdens you had to carry as either needless items to be shed on your journey, as a necessary and a refining load to strengthen your inner being. You will see that your future is as bright as your faith. For you will have begun the path to Master Your Power Within. For this is what you owe the world and yourself indeed.

4 Ways to Create Your Own Money Machine

If you have been in commissioned sales or entrepreneurship for more than a couple of months, you likely have enjoyed the fruits of your labors, but there has been this little nagging problem you have faced. It is something that over time can eat away at you. I know that I have felt the tug of this issue at multiple times throughout my sales and entrepreneurial career.

“Hero to Zero” is what one of my managers used to call that feeling. Maybe you’ve have had a great month or quarter. But you now have to turn around and do it again to be able to bring home those commission checks you have come to enjoy.

This burden might not be weighing on you if you’re in the first few months or maybe the first few years of sales and entrepreneurship. But eventually you will want to focus on what you do best instead of chasing down that next prospect so you can bring home a paycheck. You want to increase your staying power like we talked about in our article “9 Things the Poor and Middle Class get Wrong about Money.”

What’s the solution?

Residual Income.

Residuals, those elusive sly vixens that we have heard of. We probably all know that one guy or gal who has built up a solid book of business or portfolio that pays them month in and month out regardless of whether they chase down that one extra prospect.

You may be thinking, “Yeah, yeah, this is all well and good. I have wanted to get my hands on some residuals. If I knew how I would have done it by now.” Well, my friend, today is your lucky day!

These are the 4 ways you can get some of that residual income hitting your bank account each month.

1. Sell a service + product

There is a company who sells and installs high-end pottery and plants in residential and commercial settings. Initially, they thought that their installs were the most profitable part of their business. However, after a financial analysis, they found that the most profitable part of their business was the weekly maintenance packages they sold their clients to come in and maintain the flower and plants they installed. This routine service they provided their clients led to more installs, but also a stable base from which they could work with. They weren’t forced to go through the feast and famine cycle just to keep the lights on.

Similarly, I know of an accountant who switched from selling a service at tax time to a monthly subscription service. By doing so this takes the bite out of the once per year bill and provides him with year-round income.

2. Build residuals into your business model

Seems like kind of a no-brainer, right? You would be surprised at how many people I have talked to who sell big-ticket items like cars or real estate, who have told me they wish they had residual income. If residuals are not part of your business model, and they’re something you want, then it might be time to switch businesses.

olu-eletu-13086Insurance and financial services are industries that oftentimes have residual opportunities. Many multi-level marketing organizations have excellent residual opportunities. The actual opportunity itself is not as important as the opportunity aligning to the 4 Keys of Business.

3. Get a Properly-Structured Insurance Contract

This is actually one of the oldest forms of residual income methods. Using lifetime income annuities can be dated back to Julius Caesar and the “retirement plans” for Roman citizens and soldiers. There are some “financial guru’s” out there who disparage the use of annuities. However, it is pretty tough to argue with a financial vehicle that has withstood the test of 2000+ years. These same “financial guru’s” also tell you to put your money into a mythical mutual fund that makes 12% returns. If you have attended our ultimate wealth course, you probably know that mutual funds are one of the biggest rip-offs there is. These supposed “gurus” are probably oftentimes veiled, highly-paid, spokespeople for wall street mutual fund firms, so take their “advice” with a grain of salt.

4. Invest in Cash Flow Real Estate

Real Estate is far and above one of, if not the most dynamic and lucrative residual cash machines out there. There are more than 5 ways to get a return in real estate. However, real estate should come with a warning label. That warning label might read that a person could lose big in real estate, especially if you don’t have proximity to someone like Brandon Broadwater who has not only created his own multi-million dollar real estate portfolio but has also helped others do the same. You need to have a level of caution when entering the waters of real estate. However, the good news is that with the right training you can get into real estate very easily and with little, or no money, and it is one of the most lucrative residual income opportunities.

Now, let me make something clear, I am not making a case against commission only sales or entrepreneurial endeavors. I am simply stating that it would be wise to bring in an additional stream of income. That way those commission checks you are earning can simply be the cherry on top of your Money Making Machine.

So who is in? Tell us in the comments how you have created residual income, or how you plan to create residual income.

Mitch Hancock

This could be the best day of your life . . .

It was the beginning of the month, I had exceeded sales expectations for the previous month, there was the temptation to let a few days of ease flow by. You know the kind? Feet thrown up on the desk pretending to be getting stuff done?shoes on desk

Nevertheless, I picked up the phone, dialed the number for a customer that I had worked with a few days before, let it get half way through a ring, then quickly hung up the phone. The thoughts came to my mind, “They are not a serious prospect, I don’t want to pester them. They probably are not really in the market for my product, they seemed more like tire kickers to me. I certainly don’t want to be that’ overbearing sales guy.”

 

I share this story, not because it is unique, but because it is all too common. For some it may only happen on occasion, for others it may be quite frequent. If this has happened to you, like it has to me, chances are that the true motivation behind me not making that follow up sales call was not actually for any of those aforementioned reasons. It could be a variety of well-intentioned excuses, but what it truly boils down to is something of a little bit different nature than being polite.

So what is it?

That thing that holds us back in these situations?

 

It is reluctance. It is fear of the unknown.

ranggi-manggala-166164

I see it in myself again and again. You may see and feel it too. Perhaps it is not sales or business related,  maybe it is asking for a date, possibly it is when you ask for help, or maybe when you are making a serious life change. Really, that fear and reluctance can strike at any time, but especially when you are about to do something that could change your life, or, at least, push you in the right direction. I think the real fear behind this is twofold; fear of rejection and fear of the unknown.

 

Leslie Becker Ph.D. in her “Psychology Today” article entitled, “Love and the Fear of Loss” tells us this…

 

“Sometimes people are overcome – even paralyzed – by the feared or expected pain associated with . . .  loss. So they try to protect against their pain. They might try to hold tight to the moment, such as by taking a picture. Or, by making sure that a relationship stays positive, avoiding conflict at all costs. Unfortunately, these efforts break the living connection, making the object of their love more of a possession.

 

People may tend to the object; looking at their photograph — or doing everything “right” for their partner – but they are no longer fully open and connected. Inevitably, the love dies. Sometimes people defend against the feared or expected pain from loss by staying emotionally distant from people. They might even keep their lives small and controllable. But this leaves them feeling cut off from an important part of themselves that is curious, wants to explore and grow, or even has a hidden passion. As a result, they remain stifled and feel empty or dead inside. If you realize that you are protecting yourself from the pain of loss, you have a decision to make. You can let that moment of realization slip by and continue to live a defended life. Or, you can take action toward breaking loose.”

 

How it relates

Now she is obviously speaking in the context of love and relationships. Yet I’m sure you will find, as I have, a correlation to that description of reluctance and fear in just about any aspect of our lives. Also, our romantic and most intimate relationships can be studied to find metaphors for other facets of our life.

But here is the thing, that same fear you and I may have of the unknown or fear of rejection can become the very energy and enthusiasm that excites you for the future with just paradigm shift.

austin-schmid-37423

That cold call, or that date, or that meeting with your boss; that may very well be the best thing that ever happens to you. Perhaps that cold call will turn into the best sale of your life. Perhaps that date may be where you meet the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. That meeting with your boss may be when you finally get that promotion. Think about it!

 

Today could be the best day of your life! 

Let that sink in for a second. Today could be the best day of your life!

After all, why not?

Why shouldn’t it be the best day of your life?

We may find ourselves at an edge. We may see stepping of that edge as a terrible leap of faith. It may cause us to be scared to death. It may be something we at first shrink and try to pull away from. When in reality we should learn to Master our Power Within and courageously breakthrough that edge. For what often matters is how we approach that edge oftentimes more so than actually going through the edge at times.

I once sat in a conference once and listened to Mark Hoog. He has a few simple precepts that he lives by. More often than not, if there is something that will rock the boat and disrupt the patterns we have been running in our life, we find reasons why we can’t do that thing, why we shouldn’t do it, and why we wouldn’t. This is what Mark does differently, he focuses on why he could, why he should, and why he would.

What a shift in mindset that can be . . .

When presented with an opportunity we almost instinctively start coming up with reasons why we cant do it. We start subconsciously (or perhaps consciously) start reasoning as to why we should not do it, or why we wouldn’t want to.

 

What if, when we are presented with an opportunity to buy something meaningful that will improve our life, we instead started our internal dialog by asking ourselves why we could, why we should, and why we would? And rather than just dipping our toes in the water we jumped right in? What if we focused on how this next day, decision, prospect, or date may be the best we have ever had?

The next time you face that sales call reluctance, or the hesitancy before taking the leap that of faith in your life, rather than thinking about all of the things that could possibly go wrong; think about all the things that could go right. Because who knows . . . 

 

This could be the best day of your life!

Hit 6-Figures with Business Key #1

Before we begin, you need to know there are two ways of approaching life:

  1. One way is to be bitter and only listen to our own advice, and that’s dangerous.
  2. The second way is to be believing.  This is how successful people live.

We need all the help we can get, and I wouldn’t be in the place I’m at today making millions of dollars unless somebody showed me how.

“Can I do this?”

I’ve been doing this for 10 years and have spoken internationally for a long time. Thousands of people have learned these things and I’ve seen them get results. All I got to say is… if they can do it, you can do it.

I’ve known car salesman that didn’t know what to do next to get out of that system to go to a 6-figure income. And they did it in less time than they thought possible.

Can you do it? Of course you can, with the 4 Keys of Business.

The 4 Keys of Business are the most fundamental piece to making sure that you have success in any endeavor. This can apply to real estate. It can apply to a multi-level marketing company or network marking company. And it can apply to a business such as a small business or startup. It can even apply to a major corporation.

The way the 4 Keys of Business work is you’ve got to see it on a scale from 0 to 10.

  • 10 means ‘yes, it qualifies’.
  • 8, 9 or 10 means ‘pretty good’.
  • 7 or below means it’s probably not rated high enough to keep doing that or even start a business doing that.

4 Keys of Business Scale - Master Your Power Within

Key of Business #1: Predictability

Predictability is the 1st Key of Business. Ask yourself “is it predictable?”

For example, one of my first businesses was a window cleaning business. I had over 30 employees and I asked myself, “Is this predictable?” It’s summertime but cleaning windows in a city where it snows in the winter isn’t predictable. It’s predictable that you won’t make money. But can you predictably make money consistently day in and day out? The answer to that business was “no” because it was seasonal. Unless I could make a year’s worth of income in 3 or 4 months in the summer then it wasn’t worth it. I needed consistent income year round.

Guess what happened?

Well, I ended up selling that business and asked the person who was buying it, “What are you going to do in the winter time?”

“Christmas lights.”

Christmas lights?!

He said, “Your clients who pay $2-300 to get their windows cleaned are the clients who have houses that are too big to reach windows. They’re also too high to hang Christmas lights, so for the same price as windows we’ll do their Christmas lights and now we’ve got a year-round business.”

See the End from the Beginning

I sold the business because I couldn’t figure out how to get predictability up to an 8, 9 or 10 on the scale… but they could. I’ve taught about how you are the number one asset. Your mindset is the number one asset. When we say ‘is it predictable’ we need to use creativity to see if it’s only a 5, for example, how can I get it to an 8? How can I get it to a 9? Or even to a 10?

As we measure up our business endeavors to this 1st key of business, “predictability”, we can see the end from the beginning. We can predict and know if this company’s going to make money. That’s a critical question to ask. Take a network marketing company for example. Say you’re selling your favorite vitamins. Is it predictable?

It depends.

It’s going to be a level 10 if you have leadership skills, motivation skills to help manage a team and can motivate other people to help you do it. If you don’t have those skills then your predictability’s going to be a lot lower. It has nothing to do with the vitamins.

Let’s take real estate, for example. It’s one of the most common assets that the rich and the abundant have to make money.  How does real estate measure up? Is it predictable?

Photo of a house - Master Your Power Within

Yes!

If you get a tenant that has good credit the chances of them paying rent are sky high. If you have the system of a credit and criminal check before you move a person into a property then the predictability goes from maybe a 3 or 4… to a 9 or 10!

Bad Advice from Your Friends

Your middle-class friends will try to talk you out of making investment decisions they don’t understand.  They’ll say, “You don’t want to fix toilets in the middle of the night.” (By the way, I’ve never had to go fix a broken toilet because of how I manage properties.) That’s a middle-class story of what they think the rich and the abundant are doing.

I’ve made millions of dollars and invested in millions of dollars of real estate and made millions in business. Real estate measures up to a high level of predictability on the 4 Keys of Business.

The Altar of Sacrifice

robert-lukeman-128794

 

In the world today we don’t talk much about altars. Perhaps only talking about a wedding ceremony being performed. However, there was a time where altars played a significant role in someone’s day to day life. Now, I am not going to get into a discourse on Mosaic law, nor of sacrificing the firstlings of the flock.

I am going to be talking about an altar that we need to visit regularly. This is something that if we don’t make a regular visit we may find ourselves moving forward in such a way that we are burdened down. Or perhaps we may end up sacrificing the wrong thing.

But when we do make these visit’s as often as needed and sacrifice what we ought to, we will find our life moving forward in ways that are even greater than we could have ever imagined.

Today we will talk about . . .

“The Altar of Sacrifice”

So, you may be wondering what in the world I am talking about. That’s ok, hang with me. You will see that visiting this altar will become something you look forward to even if your first few visits are less than pleasant.

Chances are if you are reading this post, I know some things about you. So I am going to talk about you for a moment? Cool? (Disclaimer: If I am wrong about you, please tell me nicely that I should discontinue my career as a fortune teller, ok?)

crystalball

If you are reading this post my guess is that you are a person who has lofty goals and ambitions. The kind of person who has a drive and desire for greatness in many aspects of their life. You have likely achieved a high level of skill or mastery in certain aspects of your life, however, you are not seeing the level of success or fulfillment that you would like. There is probably have an area or two of your life that you have put some serious effort into, but you keep coming away from that area confused as to why you feel like you are spinning your wheels.

Any of those ring true?

So what is it? What is the secret?

Well, we are not going to talk about getting unstuck, we covered that in this series of posts, check them out here.

So you may be asking what is this “Altar of Sacrifice” business all about? Let’s dive in, shall we?

I have found that we as human beings don’t like to sacrifice. If left to our own devices and preferences we would much rather live a comfortable life devoid of any sacrifice. However, we end up sacrificing things all the time. Literally every day. The problem? We sacrifice the wrong things.

We sacrifice our health for our career. our relationships for short-term gain. our time for money AND our wealth for made up “security”. You see where I am going with this?

Oftentimes we sacrifice what should be our long-term primary priorities for short-term secondary activities.

What we should be doing is sacrificing our secondary activities and sub-par character traits.

If only there was a dealership for these type of things. Imagine walking in with an unfulfilled life and character and walk away with a brand new shiny excellent character. (Well, there kind of is. Check out one of our live events.)

I can think of times where I had to sacrifice what I thought my skills were as a salesman. I had to sacrifice what talents I thought I had. What I mean is I remember stepping into a new sales role thinking that I was going to be a rock star without really having to change much. I thought I was good enough. I thought I didn’t need to learn the program, I had it all made, after all, I was the top producer at my last gig, what could go wrong?

The Spanking

So . . . What ended up happening was that the universe gave me a big ol’ piece of humble pie. The Universe “gave me a spankin'” as Brandon Broadwater would say. I had to give up my pride and what I thought I knew in order to become better and excel at my new position. I had to become more connected to my family, I had to strengthen my faith, I had to work and pray for my communication to be effective and persuasive.

Imagine with me for a second a life without fear. A life without doubt. A life without negativity. Imagine, living a life full of excitement and love for who you are and what you do. Imagine with me for a second a life where you do not have to worry about money. A life of significance and contribution. A life of continual progression, self-realization, and joy.

arnaud-mesureur-186867

I can tell you that it is possible to live that kind of life. In fact, that is the very kind of life we create here at Master Your Power Within. That is the very kind of thing we learn about and teach at our Seminars. That is what our Master Coaches do on our Results Coaching Sessions.

So what if instead of sacrificing your family relationships, time, education, money, etc., why don’t we sacrifice that fear, doubt, negativity, and pride? When we treat ourselves like second class citizens we get second-class results, so why don’t we stop?

If we want to live that life of excitement, love, and financial freedom, then why don’t we start sacrificing the right things? Ask ourselves, is this something a top performer would do? Is this something that a healthy person would eat? Is this something a financial wise person would do?

To quote Tony Robbins, “It is not about the goal. It’s about growing to become the person that can accomplish that goal.”

So let’s shed the unnecessary sub-par characteristics we carry around and trade them in for top notch, grade A quality attributes and lifestyles.

So let me ask, what are you going to put on the Altar of Sacrifice?
