Wells of Abundance

Wells of Abundance

At the root of must human difficulty lies the eternal problem of supply. The accents called all imperfection a matter of “under-hourshment.”

The law “gives and it shall be given unto you” works with precision. Where there is no voluntary giving for what is received, something is taken from you.

Voluntary giving is a lan for individual development.

It is a way of preserving the sense of balnce between man and his surroundings.

Every sincere student should read Emerson’s Essay on “Compensation.”

What Network Markets Can Lern from Olmpian Usain Bolt

By Tim Sales

Here’s a lesson from the world’s fastest man who will make his third Olympic next week. Let’s start this lesson by watching this video clip:

This is the world’s fastest man running the 100 meter dash in 9.76 seconds. That’s pretty fast, but it takes more than sheer talent to get there, which is the focus of today’s newsletter. Let me tell you the story of Mr. Bolt before the 2008 Olympics.

The Road to Glory is Paved with Defeats

In 2004, Bolt made the Jamaican Olympic Team and went to Athens where he never made it past the first round of his only event – the 200 meter dash.

According to an article in Esquire Magazine, his coach says he was injured and had problems with scoliosis. Coach Glen Mills says he changed up his training in three ways:

  1. He cut down on the high intensity workouts and focused on building strength and flexibility.
  2. He focused on building his core muscles to make up for a weak and curved spine.
  3. He honed his technique in the 200-meter race.

Not An Overnight Success

At first, the training schedule didn’t do magic. In fact, in the two years after Mills began working with Bolt, he never placed first in a race.

The Training Equation Pays Off

However, at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Holt became the fastest man who ever lived in 200,000 years. He can run nearly 28 miles per hour at his top speed.

Objections Galore

Here’s another thing you should know about Mr. Bolt.

He doesn’t take his running “seriously enough” to most people. In the Esquire article, the writer recounts his dancing celebration after he won Olympic gold in 2008. The head of the Olympic committee said it was disrespectful and “showboating.”

Many others in the athletic world say he’s like Mozart – “prodigiously gifted…and something of a clown.”

Pocketing the Objections

Bolt defends his lighthearted take on the sport. He says he used to care about what others thought of him and then he had an epiphany that changed his game.

He says, “I figured out that as long as you’re not doing good, they’re going to criticize you, and if you’re doing good, they going to love you.”

When he let go of the perception others had of him, he says he started enjoying the sport. That’s when he became the fastest man in the world – ever.

So, what can network marketers learn from the lightning fast man?

  1. The right training can help you overcome almost any barrier.
  2. Working on core skills and technique will change your game in the long term.
  3. You have to work hard and have faith in your efforts to become great.
  4. Caring what others think of you will hold you back.
  5. Success comes when you let go and have fun.

Tell us what you think. Can the lessons from the world’s fastest man help your business?

Larry Winget’s 12 Ways to Go From Getting By to Getting Ahead

Don’t Send Your Ducks to Eagle School

The first rule of management is this: Don’t send your ducks to eagle school. Why? Because it won’t work. Good people are found, not changed. They can change themselves, but you can’t change them. If you want good people, you have to find them. If you want motivated people, you have to find them, not motivate them.

I picked up a magazine not long ago in New York that had a full-page ad in it for a hotel chain. The first line of the ad read, “We do not teach our people to be nice.” Now that got my attention. The second line said, “We hire nice people.” I thought, What a clever shortcut!”

Motivation is a mystery. Why are some people motivated and some are not? Why does one salesperson see his first prospect at seven in the morning while the other sees his first prospects at 11 in the morning? Why would one start at seven and the other start at 11? I don’t know. Call it “mysteries of the mind.”

I give lectures to a thousand people at a time. One walks out and says, “I’m going to change my life.” Another walks out with a yawn and says, “I’ve heard all this stuff before.” Why is that?

The wealthy man says to a thousand people, “I read this book, and it started me on the road to wealth.” Guess how many of the thousand go out and get the book? Answer: very few. Isn’t that incredible? Why wouldn’t everyone go get the book? Mysteries of the mind.

To one person, you have to say, “You’d better slow down. You can’t work that many hours, do that many things, go, go, go. You’re going to have a heart attack and die.” And to another person, you have to say, “When are you going to get off the couch?” What is the difference? Why wouldn’t everyone strive to be wealthy and happy?

Chalk it up to mysteries of the mind and don’t waste your time trying to turn ducks into eagles. Hire people who already have the motivation and drive to be eagles and then just let them soar.

The Best Books to Read for Entrepreneurs

 

I read a lot. I’m typically reading several books at the same time and often wonder what is the best type of book to read. I’m concerned with productivity and maximizing the output of time invested.
Since reading requires a significant amount time, what books are best to read?

It’s an important question, especially for entrepreneurs. This is because books can, and should, turn into money. If the books you’re reading aren’t turning into money in your bank account, you’re not reading the right books, or you’re not implementing what you’ve learned. 

Thinking back through the years, I’ve come to the conclusion that biographies have had the greatest impact on my overall productivity and success. I’ve read biographies on Warren Buffett, Sam Walton, John Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Donald Trump, John Astor, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Felix Dennis, Walt Disney and many more.

One of the books I’m reading now is titled, “King Larry – The Bizarre Road of a Billionaire.” It’s the biography of Larry Hillblom, who started DHL and used it to fund multiple empires. Hillblom was a strange dude, but the story of his life delivered many valuable lessons. With each biography, we get to peek inside the lives of some wealthiest people in the world. We get to see how they thought, what they did and why they did what they did. This is so incredibly valuable for those of us building one or more businesses.

More importantly, we get to see the various challenges they faced building their businesses. In many cases, these challenges were far greater than anything you or I have experienced in our businesses. Seeing how these wealthy individuals adapted to each challenge is extremely motivating. You walk away from each book with a different perspective and begin to see challenges as opportunity.

Building a business requires “thick skin,” and for most of us experience is what thickens our skin. Here are common experiences we go through that thickens our skin:

Getting audited
Getting sued
Having financial issues/bankruptcy
Losing key employee with no notice
Failed partnerships
Failed businesses
Bad investments
Competitors stealing clients
Employees stealing from you
Regulatory problems

I’m sure you’ve experienced one or more of these skin-thickening events on your journey. Each event we go through makes us a little stronger because you realize it’s not so bad. A close friend of mine just went through bankruptcy and he said it was the best thing that ever happened to him. He is no longer afraid of losing money.

Milton Hershey filed for bankruptcy multiple times. Henry Ford, Donald Trump, Walt Disney, P.T. Barnum, H.J. Heinz…all also filed for bankruptcy. Oddly enough, Mr.Larry Hillblom (King Larry) who I’m reading about now, was fascinated by bankruptcy and filed bankruptcy to win a BIG court case against a competitor.

Bankruptcy as a business tool?

I honestly believe we can short cut the “skin-thickening” process by studying people who built large businesses or significant wealth. The reason why is because our skin thickens as we “see” what they went through in their lives.

I’ve often thought about setting a goal to read the top 50 “classics.” These classics would include “Wuthering Heights,” “Moby Dick,” “The Count of Monte Cristo,” “Anna Karenina,” “Ulysses,” etc.
I honestly believe these classics would change my life. However, they may or may not change my business(es), income or wealth. A better option might be to read the biographies of the 50 richest
people throughout history. How about one biography a month for the next 50 months?

How do you think your perspective would change if you read one biography a month for 50 months? Don’t know until you try.
