What is the reality of DEBT?
Many people lack financial IQ and because of that they fail to see the advantages of leveraging off of Good Debt. Most people have been conditioned to getting themselves into bad debt and therefore fail to understand the benefits of Good Debt.
If you are looking to start a business, whether it be online or offline and you have done your due diligence and have seen it to be a viable business that could potentially reap you a large reward, then if you have not got the capital to start off at the best position to yeild you the most amount of return, but you have access to credit, then the smart business move would be to leverage off that credit to get started in the best position and start making money to pay off that credit, at the same time positioning yourself to win.
I have included in this post a video which will really challenges your views about credit and for some of you will help the penny drop of how you should be moving forward in regards to your decision to come into a business.
LET ME TELL YOU THE TRUTH!
Success is not an accident, the key to success is planning and effort. There is an famous saying, which says "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail" You show me any successful person and I will show you a person that had defined goals and made a plan of ACTION as to how to archive them.
We are at the start of a new decade and this is normally the time where many people have good intentions to try and better their situations. However any good intention without action is just a good intention.
People typically fall into one of these categories:
1. Ready to move
2. Thinking of moving
3. Fearful of moving
4 To lazy to move
5. In a comfort zone
It does not matter how hard you try, you can not turn a 'No' person into a 'Yes' person, you may be able to recruit them into your business, but they will never do anything.
People who want to improve their situations do not have to be convinced of that fact, they are ready to move. People who are uncomfortable with their situations, start thinking about ways to change it and start looking at various ways. They may not be necessarily be ready to make a decision on something but they have started the journey of research.
Some of these people may get introduced to something and jump in straight away, it all depends on their character type (which i will explain about in a later blog). However many times these people are just gathering information.
Then you have the people that just let fear govern them all the time and therefore can never make a decision, even though they understand they need to. By the way fear just stands for:
It has not happened, yet the person convinces themselves that it has already happened. Unfortunately, unless that person drastically changes their mindset, they will never move forward. Then you have the person with the lottery mindset, you know the type; the type of person who expects something for nothing.
Typically those types of people respond to the ads that say something like " I made $10,000 in 3 weeks in this new business opportunity. I did not have to speak to anyone, the system did everything for me, i just worked 30mins a day on my computer and best of all it was FREE. Let me show you how!"
These types of people do not understand that your income follows your personal growth. Now maybe there are people who have built their businesses to a level where they can make $10,000 in 3 weeks being on their computers for 1 hour a day, however this is only possible because of all of the ground work that had gone on from before.
To many people want the end result without having to go through the process. A lazy person is not an asset to themselves or others, what they truly are, is a liability. You can identify them farely quickly by the type of langauge they use,
E.G They typicially do not want to invest any money at all, they can only put in minimum effort but they want maximum return. Excuses are the order of the day, but nothing is ever their fault. They have probably been in a number of opportunities in past, nothing has ever worked for them, because ALL of the opportunities were bad (So they think).
You can not help a lazy person to be successful, it would be like trying to push water up a hill.
Finally you have that person who is stuck in a comfort zone, they typically have jobs that are paying them a decent income or they are in jobs, doing things they have always done, so their security is in their known routine. People who are in this mindset only start looking outside of the box when their comfort zone is shaken; e.g. the likihood of redundancy (downsizing), or the possiblity of getting fired, company closures or re-settlements, injury and pregnancy.
These things typically cause them to stretch their thinking. However, as long as they are in that comfort zone, they will always do what they have always done and they will just be getting the same results, settling for 'GOOD' instead of receiving 'BEST' The reason why I took you through this process is, as I stated at the beginning, success is not an accident, it is a result of guidance and action.
This is across all industry sectors and even more so with the Home Based Business industry, because our success is based on empowerment of others. There is a statement that says:
"True wealth is hidden from those people who think they have to do it all themselves. However wealth exposes itself to those people who are patient enough to train others."
2011 is the start of a new decade of opportunity, so you need to know and understand the types of people you want in your business and the types of people you should be prospecting. You are in a unique position of being able to help people create wealth from home, so learn more about people than your opportunity and your business will skyrocket. Set your Goals, breakdown your goals into Projects, then breakdown those projects into Tasks and final breakdown those tasks into Activities.
From that point you can start working backards. What I mean by that is, when you do yourActivities, you will complete your Tasks, when your Tasks are complete, you will come to the end of your Project and when you have come to the end of your Project you would have hit your Goal.
Remember success is not an accident!

What on earth does P.O.A.P stand for?
Your Perception will effect your Opinion and your opinion will effect your Attitude and your attitude will effect your Performance.
"Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud, and one sees the stars."- Frederick Langbridge, A Cluster of Quiet Thoughts You can perceive things in many different ways, for instance, if you come second in a race, you have the choice to rejoice in your accomplishment and push to do better next time and win, or you can let your defeat stop you from even trying again in the future and feed into your own excuses.
Life is all about choices, we are a sum total of what we choose to do or not do as the case may be. You can choose to have a pessimist’s view and live your life in a self-defeated way or you may decide to take the optimist’s route and decide to take a more challenging and fulfilling life experience.
So why is it important to have a positive NOW mentality?
One good reason is, having a positive mental attitude has been linked to positive moods and better social skills; to academic achievement, athletic advancement, straight through to high achievements within the military, career, political success; to popularity; to good health and even to long life free from trauma. In contrast to the rates of depression in people that are pessimistic, these rates have never been higher. It affects people of all ages, people groups.
The average age this effects over the last few years has dropped from 30 to 15 years of age. So depression is no longer something associated to middle-aged housewife’s.
Here are some reasons that demonstrate why being an optimist is very beneficial
An Optimist will always expect the best. Pessimists on the other hand also expects the worst, if something can go wrong it will! This type of mindset undermines everything they do, and stops them from moving forward. The optimists on the other hand are confronted with the same challenges of this world, what differs is the way they respond to them. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback and victory is just around the corner. Optimists tend to focus on solutions for the current problem at hand. They use 'positive reinterpretation.' In other words, they turn a negative situation around and view it as a learning experience. Such people are unfazed by bad situations, they see them as a challenge and try harder. They won’t say “things will never get better,” “If I failed once, it will happen again” and “If I experience misfortune in one part of my life, then it will happen in my whole life.”
Positive expectancies of optimists also allow them to draw from from those memories if they ever find themselves in new unfamilier places, sudden tragedies and unlikely turn of events. If they fall, they will stand up. They see opportunities instead of obstacles.
People respond positively to optimists
Optimists are proactive and less dependent on others for their happiness. They find no need to control or manipulate people. They usually draw people towards them. Their optimistic view of the world can be contagious and influence those they are with. Optimism is the thing that attracts people, know matter what community you belong to. Those who share a positive outlook are generally accepted while those who spread gloom, panic and doom are avoided. In life, these people often win elections; get the best jobs, have a large social following and get sought for advice.
When the going gets tough, optimists get tougher
Optimists typically deal with stress alot better than the pessinist. In contrast, pessimists are likely to react to stressful events by denying that they exist or by avoiding dealing with problems. Pessimists are more likely to quit trying when things get difficult. The optimist has staying power, they just don’t give up easily, they have patience and are always working their way closer to that goals they have set for themselves.
Optimists are healthier and live longer
Medical research has justified that simple pleasures and a positive outlook can cause a measurable increase in the body's ability to fight disease. Optimists’ health is unusually good. They age well becasue they see the need for good amounts of exercise, nutrition and spirtual health and they general outlive those people prone to negative thoughts.
So why not be an optimist today? And think positively towards a more fulfilled life. Why not look forward to success in all you choose to do? Why not be resilient?
Like everybody else you are going to have ups and downs but it is not the falling down that is the problem, it is the staying down.
Pick yourself up, dust off your clothes and continue your journey. You will quickly realise that your example will be an inspiration to others.
