Success

Vitamine für den Geist – vitamins for yor mind

DESIRE – MOTIVATION

Humans have the remarkable ability to recieve exactly what they must have. But there is a big difference between a „must“ and a „want.“

The best motivation is of course self-motivation. The man says, „I wish someone would come by and turn me on.“ What if they don’t show up? You’ve got to have a better plan for your life.

When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to achieve it.

Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, you will get a motivated idiot.

Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value. But many people don’t have any plan or ideas how their life should look like in 5 years from now.

Although I met I lot of people who wish to be successful only a few are prepared to pay the price for it. When you ask 100  students all of them want to be successful, 40 years later in average only 5 of them achieved it! Why? 95% did not want to pay the price…

The price is not really high:

  • Spend every day one hour reading inspiring books or listening to motivating CD’s
  • Talk to succssful people and listen carefully
  • Avoid success – spoiling thoughts, be careful what you think about you and about others
  • Become a KEY-person with value for your environment
  • Help other people to change their life to a better one, make them successful
  • Check if you are living and working in a SLAVE – SAVE -RETIRE- mode, if yes – change it!

YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANTYTHING YOU REALLY WANT!

Sind Sie ein Siegertyp?

„Wir sind zum Siegen geboren, sagte mal jemand. Aber dieser Sieg gehört auch geplant und vorbereitet. Dann erreichen wir auch unsere Ziele.“

Siegen heißt ja nicht, jemand anderen besiegen zu müssen. Siegen heißt, ein hoch attraktives Leben zu führen als Folge davon, weil man immer wieder anderen Menschen dabei geholfen hat und hilft, siegREICH und damit erfolgREICH zu sein.

Ich habe in meinem bisherigen Leben viel erlebt. Ich habe schöne Dinge erlebt in meinen bisher 52 Jahren, ich habe aber auch unangenehme Dinge erlebt. Ich habe richtige Entscheidungen getroffen und ich habe falsche Entscheidungen getroffen.

Dabei habe ich eines gelernt: Man muss nicht alle Fehler selber machen, obwohl man das meiste von seinen eigenen Fehlern lernt. Man kann aber auch sehr viel von den Fehlern anderer lernen, wenn man grundsätzlich offen ist fürs Lernen hat. Wenn ich meine Siege nicht geplant habe, dann haben sie auch meistens nicht stattgefunden. Ein Mensch ohne Ziele ist dem Tiere gleich, hörte ich kürzlich jemanden sagen. Man lebt eben einfach nur so dahin…. Und wartet auf was?

Wenn man in einer Sache den Sieg nicht erwartet – sondern eher das Gegenteil befürchtet – dann wird meist das Gegenteil auch eintreten. Wenn man aber beginnt, ganz klare Schritte in die richtige Richtung zu setzen, dann wird man auch am Ziel ankommen. Wenn die Motivation nicht stimmt, produziert man automatisch Probleme – anstatt welche zu lösen.

Das Fazit daraus lautet: Die Fragen, die einem zum Sieg führen sind diese: Was haben andere Menschen davon, dass es mich gibt? Was haben andere Menschen von meinen Entscheidungen, von meinen Handlungen? Welchen Einfluss hat mein Handeln auf die Menschen um mich herum? Bin ich ein Segen für mein Umfeld?

Beginnen Sie damit und viele offensichtliche Probleme werden sich in Luft auflösen!

The realization takes place now

New polling out this week shows that Americans are frustrated with the world and pessimistic about the future. They’re losing patience with their economy, with their prospects, with their leaders (of both parties).

What’s actually happening is this: we’re realizing that the industrial revolution is fading. The 80 year long run that provided ever-increasing productivity (and along with it, well-paying jobs) is ending.

It’s one thing to read about the changes the internet brought, it’s another to experience them. People who thought they had a valuable skill or degree have discovered that being an anonymous middleman doesn’t guarantee job security. Individuals who were trained to comply and follow instructions have discovered that the deal is over… and it isn’t their fault, because they’ve always done what they were told.

This isn’t fair of course. It’s not fair to train for years, to pay your dues, to invest in a career and then suddenly see it disappear.

For a while, politicians and organizations promised that things would get back to normal. Those promises aren’t enough, though, and it’s clear to many that this might be the new normal. In fact, it is the new normal.

Some people insist that if we focus on „business fundamentals“ and get „back to basics,“ all will return. I don’t think so. The promise that you can get paid really well to do precisely what your boss instructs you to do is now a dream, no longer a reality.

It takes a long time for a generation to come around to significant revolutionary change. The newspaper business, the steel business, law firms, the car business, the record business, even computers… one by one, our industries are being turned upside down, and so quickly that it requires us to change faster than we’d like.

It’s unpleasant, it’s not fair, but it’s all we’ve got. The sooner we realize that the world has changed, the sooner we can accept it and make something of what we’ve got. Complaining isn’t a scalable solution.

People have to change and think about alternatives which exist… and more and more recognize this fact.

The Great Challenge of Life

by Jim Rohn (ich hätte es nicht besser formulieren können)

Here’s  the great challenge of life: You can have more than you’ve got because you can become  more than you are.

I  have found that income seldom will exceed your own personal development. Once in  a while income takes a lucky jump, but unless you grow out to where it is, it will  go back to where you are. Somebody once said that if you took all the money in the  world and divided it equally among everyone, it would soon be back in the same pockets.  However, you can have more because you can become more. You see, here is how the  other side of the coin reads: Unless you change how you are, you will always have  what you’ve got. The marketing plan won’t do it. It’s a good plan but it won’t work  without you. You’ve got to work it. It is the human effort that counts. If you could  send a sales manual out to recruit, wouldn’t that be lovely? The major thing that  makes the difference is what YOU do.

In  order to have more, you need to become more. The guy says, “If I had a good job,  I would really pour it on, but I have this lousy job so I just goof off.” If that  is your philosophy, you are destined to stay there. Some people say “If I had a  lot of money I would be really generous, but I don’t have much so I’m not generous.”  See, you’ve got to change that philosophy or you will never have “a lot of money.”  Unless YOU change, IT won’t change. Amazingly, however, when we throw out our blame  list and start becoming more, everything else will begin to change around us.

Worauf es ankommt …

Ein Fremder fragte auf der Straße einen alten Mann: Sag mal: „Welche großen Männer wurden in dieser Stadt geboren? “ Der weise Mann antwortete: „In dieser Stadt kommen nur Kinder zur Welt.“

Überall auf der Welt kommen Kinder zur Welt, keine großen Männer, keine großen Frauen, ganz einfach Kinder. Und aus einigen davon wird etwas Großes. Woran wird das wohl liegen? Ich meine es hängt nicht davon ab, wer deine Eltern sind. Das wurde schon tausende Mal bewiesen. Es hängt auch ganz sicher nicht davon ab, auf welcher Seite der Stadt du geboren bzw. aufgewachsen bist. Auch ist die Ausbildung sekundär.  Es ist auch unabhängig von deinen Talenten oder gar davon, ob du Geld hast oder nicht. Nein, das alles sind nicht die wesentlichen Dinge. Es gibt ja viele sehr talentierte Menschen mit exzellenter Ausbildung, die im Leben nicht weiterkommen.

Worauf kommt es dann wirklich an, ob jemand – klein begonnen – als große Persönlichkeit sein Leben auf dieser Erde beendet? Man könnte jetzt sagen: Das hängt ab von deinen Zielen. Gut, das stimmt in gewisser Weise. Oder von deinem Denken. Ja das spielt ganz sicher eine große Rolle. Oder von den Chancen, die dir begegnen. An Chancen mangelt es keinem Menschen, wenn er sie nur sehen und zugreifen würde.

Worauf kommt es dann an? Ich bin davon überzeugt, dass es ganz besonders darauf ankommt, was du für dich selbst in deiner Zukunft siehst. Auf deine Perspektiven, die du für dein eigenes Leben hast. Eine Perspektive, die du dir selbst gibst, für die du dich entscheidest. Was siehst du vor deinem geistigen Auge für deine Zukunft? Siehst du die Berufung Gottes für dich oder nur die Umstände, die versuchen sich dagegenzustellen. Das ist das, was dann auch geschieht.

Also hören wir auf uns über die Umstände zu beklagen und zu beschweren und übernehmen Verantwortung für unser Leben.

(in Anlehnung an Karl Pilsl)

Top excuses not to start a business

1.    I don’t have the time
2.    I don’t have any money
3.    Now I want to talk to my wife about it (or hubby, significant other, relative, dogcatcher etc)

Note:  All 3 are „I“ „I“ „I“ / „me“ „me“ „me“ statements.   Wealth and
abundance – in any form – come from Serving Others.

The first two are exactly the reasons why people would want to start our kind of business.
People ALWAYS make the time and money available for the things they’re committed to.  Note what they are committed to most by watching what they DO.
Complain, watch TV or self improvement are choices.

As for #3 – Whenever possible present your business opportunity to both spouses, partners simultaneously.

Below is a 1 min video clip that goes through the next 97 or so top excuses people use for not starting a business, not taking supplements, not drinking enough
water, not exercising, not making more money, not making any money…and more.

Change Begins with Choice by Jim Rohn

I am a fan of Jim Rohn and I absolutely agree with him!

„Any day we wish, we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish, we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish, we can start a new activity. Any day we wish, we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.

We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth, and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make. But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause. As Shakespeare uniquely observed, “The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves.” We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today. Those who are in search of the good life do not need more answers or more time to think things over to reach better conclusions. They need the truth. They need the whole truth. And they need nothing but the truth.

We cannot allow our errors in judgment, repeated every day, to lead us down the wrong path. We must keep coming back to those basics that make the biggest difference in how our life works out. And then we must make the very choices that will bring life, happiness and joy into our daily lives.

And if I may be so bold to offer my last piece of advice for someone seeking and needing to make changes in their life: If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life. And it all begins with your very own power of choice.“
