IF YOU DO TOMORROW WHAT YOU DID TODAY, YOU WILL GET TOMORROW WHAT YOU GOT TODAY

Did you know that the average person earns 3-5% more each year. So it takes an average of 20 years for someone to double their income.  Crazy right???  But we see people all the time who double their income in 1 year or a couple of years and wonder how they did it.  Each an every day they wake, up they think differently and they do things differently.

This is such a great video and would love to hear your thoughts?

WHY I WORK FROM HOME

me and kids

Did you know that approx 70% of people quit their job as a result of their boss?  Now that is not entirely what happened to me, but I wanted to take a moment to share with you a little about my story and how I ended up on the path of working from home.

So my journey actually began just over 2 years ago, I had just returned to work after having my daughter.  She went to childcare 3 days a week, while I worked my job.  It all seemed good in theory, but theories are just that and not always what happens in real life.  My daughter got sick all the time and for the first 7 months I was having every second week off work.  I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place.  My daughter was always going to be top of my priority list, but I had a job that had sales targets and expectations that I was expected to achieve whether I was there or not.  I starting thinking to myself “there had to be more to life, there had to be a better way”.  This sent me searching on what I had thought would be another job, as I had 0 ambition to have my own business as I bought into everything people had told me about business, well traditional business.

While searching for another job, the universe had other ideas and led me to a webpage offering a business opportunity.  I was extremely reluctant to say the least, but thought I would just find out.  I received a phone call, listened to what the person had to say on the phone and was sent through some more information.  As soon as I got off the phone I instantly searched the internet to see if it was a scam.  I went through the information and there was just something about it that was pulling me in, I was looking for more in my life and this is what it was offering.  During this process the saying, “the definition of insanity-doing the same thing and expecting a different result” kept popping up.  I knew if I wanted different results I had to make different decisions, so I got started.

Has it been easy? No, but nothing that is easy is every rewarding in life.  Although working from home can have it’s own set of challenges, it is certainly a whole lot less than my job did.  Now I get to have the flexibility I want, I get to take my daughter to dance lessons and both kids do swimming lessons and if one of the kids is sick I don’t have to explain myself to anyone.  I really do love working from home and I have gone from being an unhappy stressed out Mum to being happy and setting an example for my kids I can be proud of.

Money isn’t everything, but it is up there with oxygen

money is like oxxygenI always find it interesting when I talk to people and they tell me that money isn’t that important.  However, it is these people that are stressing about paying their bills or working ridiculous hours to keep a roof over their head.  Money is not a bad thing and wanting money is not a bad thing.  Having money means you become self reliant instead of relying on others or the government.  Having money means that you are able to experience more in life.  Having money gives you the ability to be able to give back and help others.  I was bought up believing that all rich people are A$@#holes.  What I have now learned is that money simply magnifies the person you already are.  So if someone is an A$@#hole then they are going to be so with or without money.  People fear that if they had a lot of money it will change them.  I can ensure you that this is a Big Fat Myth and simply not true.  So go out with a desire to earn a crap load of money and enjoy life.

Consistency Builds Momentum Builds Success

Did you know that on average there is a plane taking off at Heathrow airport every 45 seconds?  Why am I talking about planes, well it is the perfect example of building momentum.  You aren’t going to turn on an airplane and expect it to instantly fly, you have to build up speed and then once you are up it gets much easier.  That is kind of how business works, it is always tough at the start and you have to put much more work in, but then as you start building momentum it will get easier.

How do we build momentum?  With consistency, this is the biggest key to building up that momentum.  In the beginning it can seem a little overwhelming so I always start with small steps.  Start with a couple of small things that you commit to each and every single day until it becomes a habit.  They say it takes about 21 days to create a new habit, so once you have accomplished the first couple, then pick 2 or 3 more and commit to doing them each and every single day until they become habit.

What can derail your momentum?  There are a number of things that can derail the consistency and therefore derail the momentum.  Planning or lack of is one thing that can cause you to become unstuck.  They say “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.  Get into the habit of having a schedule and be disciplined to stick with it.  Allocate certain amounts of time for each task and you will find yourself doing less paper shuffling.  Learn to value your time;  If you don’t value your time than others won’t either and you will probably find your time being taken up doing things for everyone else all the time.  Don’t get disheartened; it can be easy to feel like a failure and like you are getting nowhere.  You can change this by learning to count your wins everyday no matter how big or small.  This will help you keep focused on the positive and not dragged under by the negative.

In summary, in order to help you create success you need to build momentum and this isn’t just for business, but can be applied to other areas of your life.

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN CHANGE

Learn to focus on what you can change and not focus on what you can’t change.  In a time when you think that you have no control over a situation then simply look at it for another perspective.

Tired Of Falling Off The Band Wagon?

bandwagon

How many times have you said you are going to change something or do something, but not follow through.  You might do it for a little while, but then resort back to your old habits.  If you fall into this category then I can totally relate.  It is frustrating, tiring and does nothing for your confidence levels.  You kind of feel like why bother and I have been there plenty of times myself.  I am here to help you overcome this issue and finally achieve your goals.  Let me run through the 7 steps that I use which is helping me achieve my goals.

  1. MINDSET –  I can not stress how important this is.  If you don’t have this than it is not worth even starting because it will sabotage you quicker than you can say your name.  How do we change it?  Well personal development is a great tool and one that I use on a daily basis.  Your first step before you start anything else is Mindset Mindset Mindset.
  2. MEDITATION/VISUALISATION –  Now I know this may seem a little hippy to some, but I have found that this is one thing that really has been the change lately and noticed the effect it has.  You don’t have to meditate for hours, in fact I have a guided meditation that I do in the morning that goes for 11 minutes.  During this time visualise what it is you are wanting to achieve and how it feels.  When I have finished it makes me feel calm, balanced and ready to take on the world
  3. COMMUNITY – You are always going to be more successful when you surround yourself with the right people.  You want positive people who are moving in a similar direction that you want to head.  If you are overweight and unhealthy then you need to go and hang out with healthy people.  This may mean that you may have to limit the time or cut it out altogether with the people you currently hang around with.  I know it can be hard to do this and we allow guilt to dictate our decisions.  There is a saying “sometimes you have to let go of the old so you can make room for the new”.  That is life and if you truly want to achieve your goal then you need to overcome your fear and guilt.
  4. POSTURE – Act as if you are already living the life that you want and have a bit of fun with it.  LIFE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE BORING!! So often we do things the wrong way around and you might catch yourself saying I will be confident when I am thin.  This is the attitude of Have Do Be.  What you need to do is change it around to a Be Do Have posture.  So be confident, take the action towards your goal and then you will be thin.  If you think it sounds simple it’s because it is, doesn’t mean it won’t require work.  We as humans like to complicate things.
  5. COUNT YOUR WINS – We spend so much time focusing on the negative, what we didn’t do, what we did do, what we haven’t achieved.  That is not motivating for anyone, in fact it is making me feel unmotivated just writing it.  Count your wins, focus on the positive, each night write down 10 things that you achieved, even if it is “I didn’t hit the snooze button on my alarm this morning”.  That is a win and you should celebrate it.  Also be sure to set yourself little milestones and reward yourself for reaching them.
  6. GRATITUDE – This one is probably just as important as the first and one that probably isn’t practiced enough.  Be grateful for things, anything, everything.  By being grateful not only are you putting positive energy out into the universe, but it allows you to place a focus on what you have rather than what you don’t have.
  7. SOLUTIONS NOT EXCUSES – Have you found yourself coming up with every excuse under the sun for not doing something and then bitching later because you didn’t do it, surely I can’t be the only one.  When you hear yourself coming up with an excuse, turn it around and ask yourself, “what is the solution”.  STOP BUYING YOUR EXCUSES!!!!
HAVE FUN

HAVE FUN

I really hope these steps help you when setting your next goal.  I do apologise about the length, it was only supposed to be about 4 steps, but I guess I got a little carried away.

I would love to hear your thoughts and what your goals are.

STOP!!! Australian Tour is Coming

AUSSIE TOUR

2015 is a new year to make things happen, to decide that you are finally going to live the life you want.  This will look different for each and every single person.  However, one thing is clear, the day of having a secure job is in the past and the age of entrepreneurism is booming.

There are many different reasons that people decide to work for themselves:

  • You no longer like their job
  • You don’t like being told what to do by a boss
  • You feel like your skills are not being utilised
  • You are looking for more flexibility
  • You are tired of hitting the glass ceiling
  • You want to get out of the rat race
  • You feel like there is something missing
  • and the list goes on………

If you fall into any of those categories then pay close attention because it is your time to shine.  If you are interested in exploring the option of a home based business we are going to be starting our Australian Tour in the next couple of weeks.  If you live in Australia we are going to be conducting Business Presentations in your local area.  The founders of the company I partner with are coming all the way from the United States to do a National Tour of Australia During Jan/Feb 2015.  At these FREE business presentations you will learn more about our Income Opportunity & Award Winning product line.  You will have the opportunity to meet fellow Associates in the area who are creating up to a multiple six figure incomes working from home & find out how you can too.
