How to Change Your Life
I heard this saying the other day, and it’s so true of how we approach so many things in life. Have you ever watched a kid learn how to swim? They are afraid to put their head under water, or even to get IN the water! It’s fun to teach them and see the look on a kids face when they finally master it and they begin swimming to you! “Watch me Daddy…Catch Me Dad” 🙂 I remember those times like it was yesterday…awesome awesome memories there!
Nowadays, I see people all the time standing on the sidelines hoping and wishing for a miracle to happen in their life. They want more income, they want more time, they want positive-minded friends, they want to work from home, but they won’t take the necessary steps to “wade into the water”. In order to change your life, you have to change your life! Something in your life HAS to change. So where does it start? How do we get in the game, dive into the pool of the unknown, or swim with the sharks and not get eaten?
The First Step to Change Your Life
The moment we make the decision that enough is enough. The instant that we decide in our mind that we want “more”, a better life, and we’re willing to commit to doing whatever it takes to make that happen. My good friend Chip Eichelberger talks in his speeches about the word “decision”. The Latin root of the word, caedere, means to literally “cut off” any other option. I take that to mean that once a person decides in their mind they are going to be successful, nothing will stand in their way to get there. Failure is not an option!
In the Network Marketing industry its sooo cool to hear the stories of people that were just like you and I in some respects. Ray Higdon, Diane Hochman, Minh Ho, or Rob Roder are people I have seen that were completely broken at some point in their life, whether it be financially or mentally. Ray and Diane made their way online and are now Rockstars in the industry, and famous Internationally. Minh Ho was living in his car a little over a year ago for 3 weeks until he discovered Talk Fusion, and now has made over a Million dollars in the past year. Rob Roder borrowed the money in October of 2010 to Join Talk Fusion, yet he paid cash for a nice home recently, paid off his wife’s medical bills, and he too will be the next Millionaire within Talk Fusion.
Those are just 4 of the stories I know about, but I have heard hundreds since I’ve been in the Industry. In fact, I’m writing my own as we speak. But what if Ray Higdon or Diane didn’t make the decision to do something different? What if Minh Ho or Rob Roder didn’t take the chance and erase any shred of doubt or indecision in their focus and mission?
You see when you talk to true leaders or successful people there is no doubt, no negativity, no wavering of decision…it’s crystal clear focus, determination, and a commitment to excellence. When you’re with them, talking to them, you FEEL a powerful presence. You can sense that you’re among greatness. That’s called “energy” and people either put out good energy or bad energy.
People will follow positive energy, and it doesn’t even matter what the leader is “doing” as you can see in this Video Below. Leadership is about having the courage to do something different, being positive in your mission with absolute resolve in your mission, and having the positive energy to have others follow you.
So what are you waiting for? We all have the power to change, to lead others. If you’re a Mom, don’t focus on the fact you’re “just a Mom” Thats nonsense!! You’re leading and inspiring young children – impacting their lives daily. If you’re teacher (though underpaid like my father), you’re making a difference to so many people too! If you’re a janitor, you’re making the world a better place to live in, etc. You get the point.
Make a decision today to try something new to improve your life! No regrets, no turning back, just go for it! Surround yourself with other positive minded people, find a good mentor, and never look back. Hurry Up…Your New Life is Waiting for you!
P.S. I’m looking to help 3 highly motivated people to lock arms with, and help them get out of the rat race and help them start dreaming again. If that’s you, call me at 865.388.4000 or email me at [email protected] today!
