What’s The Secret?: Making Any Business Successful

images

For decades, most people have wondered why a very select few get everything they want out of their business versus everyone else who start a business, but fail. It’s no big secret at all and a lot of people start off knowing what it is, but soon forget shortly after. Today, I want to share that so called “secret” with everyone. But before we get to that, I would like to point out what most people do at first before they learn why their business failed. Most people focus on these 3 things when launching your business.

MONEY– It’s a great incentive, believe me. But by focusing on this outcome, you will find that making money will be the biggest challenge you’ll face. Even though it’s a pretty large goal to focus on, it’s not large enough to move your business forward or give it life long enough to see revenue.

MATERIAL GAIN– Cars, clothes, jewelry, houses, even a jet ski are great things to have and a lot of fun to play with. However, I’m afraid that this is not sufficient enough to make your business successful. The motivation behind this won’t last long. As soon as a bump in the road comes, you’ll soon doubt why you started your business in the first place. And doubt is the number one culprit to killing many dreams.

PROBLEMS– Wow. This one I had to learn the hard way! A lot of “gurus” would tell you by focusing on the problems; you will come up with great solutions. This is false. By focusing on your why (if it’s in line with the “secret” I’m about to share), problems won’t easily over take you and coming up with effective solutions will be easy. There are very few things under the sun that are new and that includes so called “problems”. Someone went through that very same issue and I’m certain that they came up with an effective solution. Case and point: Successful businesses didn’t start off successful.

So now the question is, “What is the secret to building a successful business?” The secret is GIVING. If the reason you started your business isn’t in the spirit of giving, then I’m afraid that your business won’t last very long. Often, giving is quoted in the Bible; it’s the key to your most wealthy entrepreneurs succeeding, and the secret to receiving life’s most precious gifts. Giving is the single most powerful thing you can do for others and for yourself. It increases your overall well-being and, believe it or not, establishes trust from others. Your business should be trying to fix a problem or give something to people that can add value to their overall life.

Your greatest salesmen and women understood this factor and flourished because it. They weren’t trying to sell simply because they wanted other people’s money (granted, you do have those who do sell solely for that reason, but aren’t very successful). They sold their product or service because they believed it could help you in solving a problem or filling a void, therefore, GIVING you peace of mind. Get it. It’s not a big secret but it is very much, an OVERLOOKED one.

Remember this: If the purpose of starting your business isn’t in the spirit of helping others and giving value to other people’s lives (peace of mind), it will fail.

“Finding Our Connection: The Power Of Purpose”

the-mind-portal

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYBODY!!! With the new year, it’s time to set the tone for the rest of the year by enriching our minds. Mankind was created to do great and wonderful things. However, most people settle for a meager existence simply because we fail to recognize our purpose or discover what truly excites us (passion). If you think about it, you will realize that people have accomplished things that, at one time, were impossible. How can the mother of 4 children with no support from a husband overcome financial challenges and become financially free by using network marketing? How can one man formulate an idea that would change the cartoon industry forever and create a wonderland for children everywhere? Please tell me how one man created something that was thought impossible by building a “horseless carriage”? One thing I can tell you with great certainty is this:

We all have access to a great power and by discovering how to use it, we can create a better world and live a more prosperous life.

I am about to unveil to you the “secret” that has been helping certain people become extraordinary. This may even upset a lot of people. But I find it best that we know the truth of the matter than live within a “beautiful lie”. At least, what has been proven too many times to be doubted.

“Our minds are portals used by the Infinite Intelligence to manifest ideas and concepts from the spiritual plain onto the physical plain.”

Many of you would know the Infinite Intelligence as God, Buddha, Jehovah, or simply a higher power. We were created to manifest God’s plans onto the physical plain! This is the purpose of mankind. This is how new thought is formulated. This is how the idea of something that never existed before “pops” into someone’s mind. Our minds are used as conduits to create ideas and concepts that could very well change the world. I want you to think about the word “manifest” for a second. As many people have heard of the Law of Attraction, our thoughts can manifest things into reality. Now break down manifest and you will notice that the word “man” is in there.

From personal experience, I can tell you that things that I know, no one has taught me. It came from a place that was unknown to me at the time. Somehow or some way, I just “knew”. My spirituality was and still is at an all-time high and I’m constantly still receiving new ideas every day. It will feel like your brain can’t shut off. This is a clear indication that you are connected to the Infinite Intelligence. You are connected to your purpose. When you are connected to your purpose and acting on it, miracles happen. Ever heard someone tell you to keep an “open mind”?

Have you ever had an idea awhile back to create something that you thought would not only help a lot of people, but also take you to financial freedom, but you didn’t act on it? What are the chances that years later, someone else had the same “idea” but acted on it, and now living in financial freedom? Did you kick yourself for not acting on it? This is why I often tell anyone that they should write down their ideas immediately to save it. Having a “closed mind” will close your connection to the spiritual plain, therefore, closing yourself off to your purpose. Here is how you can reestablish your connection:

-LEARN TO FOLLOW YOUR GUT INSTINCT WHEN IT’S PUSHING YOU FORWARD. Trust your gut. This is often an indicator that your connection to the Infinite Intelligence is open.

-KEEP AN OPEN MIND. It’s difficult to receive new ideas and concepts if you have your portal closed. Not everything that most of society doesn’t see working out is a bad thing. Walt Disney built his success based off of the rejections of his trusted advisors.

-DO WHAT YOU ARE EXCITED ABOUT. You will find out that you are more productive and way more successful doing something you’re excited about than something you don’t like. Keep in mind: WHAT EXCITES YOU= PASSION. PASSION= YOUR PURPOSE

Follow the steps, increase your results tenfold!

What Will Hold You Back: What Is The Story You Tell Yourself

Growth

Often times within this industry, we meet people who will partially launch their business because they honestly believe that there is a special and secret trick that they don’t have to help them become successful. This isn’t just in business, but in life in general. They tell themselves that they don’t have the skills, finances, techniques, mental fortitude, the time, the leadership, or the step by step guide that will help them achieve massive success. Let me tell you something:

What you see depends on the story you tell yourself over and over again.

If you have convinced yourself there is no way, then there will be no way. Even when it’s clear for many others. You create what’s called a “Scotoma” or a blind spot. Let me explain. Have you ever in your lifetime been tasked to find something you were convinced you couldn’t find? Your parents may have tasked you to find the salt in the kitchen on the second shelf in the cabinet, but you told them you didn’t know where it was. So they send you to go get it. However, on your way to the kitchen, you kept telling yourself you didn’t know where it was or it wasn’t there at all. It didn’t matter how many times you looked where they told you to look, you couldn’t find it.

So one of your parents enter the kitchen and pull the salt from the shelf that was right in front of you. The problem is, you looked on that shelf many times and still couldn’t see it. So what happened? Why couldn’t you see it. Here is the reality of it:

Your eyes saw the salt, but your brain couldn’t receive the information because of the story you kept telling yourself: “It’s not here”. It’s that saying: If it was a snake, it would’ve bit me!

That happens in business too. When you keep telling yourself that you don’t have the tools, you won’t be able to see that you had the tools the entire time. When you keep telling yourself that you don’t have the skills, you won’t be able to find a way to supplement the skills you currently have. When you keep telling yourself that you don’t have the leadership, you won’t utilize the team that you already have and become the leader. Stop telling yourself a story that will lead you to defeat.

Don’t Sweat it : Keys Toward Living Less Stressfully

lp (1)EEE

Writing this chapter was really challenging for me. I used to be a person who would always allow the smallest things get to me. I would overthink the smallest details. Details, when it all comes down to it, would mean nothing in the end. Whenever we are dealing with bad news, a difficult person, or a disappointment of some kind, most of us get into certain habits.

We have our “ways” to handle certain situations. We tend to overreact and focus on the negative aspects of our immediate situations. And when this happens, we stress out, raise our blood pressure level to an all-time high, annoy others, and waste time trying to solve things that don’t matter. It has been studied that those who stress less on the small stuff has a longer life span than most people by a whopping 56%!

Keep in mind that the more you stress, the more likely you take away from your life. This ranges from being that person on the road with road rage because the driver in front of you cut you off to the person who always wants to prove you wrong about something. I will show you a way to deal with that in a few short moments here. For now, I just want you to fully understand what you’re about to learn here. There are huge dividends that will be paid out if you can fully grasp this concept.

“Don’t sweat the small stuff. Things that won’t matter when you reach the final moments of your life.”

Will you really remember that one time some random driver cut you off? Perhaps he or she was in a hurry. Do you remember those times when you were running late and you sped all the way to your destination? You can probably relate to that driver. The best thing to do at a time like that, instead of following the person just to confront them or begin to yell at the top of your lungs knowing that they can’t hear you anyway, is to simply allow that person to get into a car accident somewhere else.

Wouldn’t you agree that you rather have it happen somewhere else instead of with you? I know what you must be saying right now. “But Lorenzo, I’m justified in my anger! They could have killed me!” Hey buddy, I’m right there with you. I didn’t always take this route myself. I just found out that by taking this concept and applying to my life, I got some serious pay backs for it.

My stress levels went down and I began to see some real changes occur. I started to enjoy my life! On the flip side of this coin, if you find yourself running late because of traffic or you overslept to an appointment, engagement, or to work, I want you to take a deep breath and realize this:

“You’re already late. You might as well grab a sandwich.”

I know that it may sound silly, but it’s the truth. People are already going to be “upset” that you weren’t on time. Why rush and possibly get into a car accident or rush out the house still hungry? You will notice that this will drastically decrease stress. No one is going to remember that one day you was late to work 20 years from now.

Might I suggest that you leave a few minutes earlier? Or set your alarm for an earlier time to wake up. This will alleviate a great amount of stress from your morning routine. They have a saying in the Navy: “If you’re on time, you’re late. If you’re early, then you’re on time”.

What about that one guy at work who is always trying to prove you wrong, even though you have sufficient proof to back up everything that you say? Most people in that situation would be stressing out at this point trying their hardest not to hit the guy. You tend to think that the guy has a personal vendetta out for you. This is when you should implement this concept…….

“What is the P.O.O.R Mindset: Living Within Uncertainty”

opendoors1

What is opportunity? Many would argue that opportunity is that golden moment when you are in the right place at the right time within the right situation. However, very rarely will opportunity show itself in such a manner. Most times, opportunity is that time when your boss told you to clean the toilets in the CEO washroom or that one time you got stuck doing the jobs that nobody else wanted to do. Or maybe your friend that is doing well in his life and he offers you opportunity to join something big.

  Often times, opportunity is disguised and without the wisdom to take it, it tends to reveal itself, golden and all, in a later time when the opportunity itself is no longer within your reach. This happened when Mark Zuckerberg invited five of his friends to see what he was working on and be a part of it. Nobody knew that Facebook would grow into the titan it is today.  Only two people showed up to that dorm room that night to seize an opportunity that would make them rich beyond their wildest dreams.

  At first, it was disguised as something small. This is what three of Mark’s friends perceived it as at first. However, now the opportunity has long passed them by and their lifestyles would forever remain the same. As for the two that showed up, they can live the rest of their lives as billionaires. Here is the thing: when such opportunities present themselves, all the information about what it is will be revealed onto you once you decide to take it. To simply put it, legit opportunities work out for those who open their minds to it and decide to capitalize on it.

  Now here is the golden question that everybody wants to know. Where do opportunities come from? 97% of people in America believe that opportunities appear out of thin air. That one must be blessed or kissed by an angel to receive one. But understand that those who believe in gaining anything that way will not see a true opportunity when it reveals itself. No. Opportunities come from other people. Other people who are in a position of strength. Many people turn their noses up to such opportunities in hopes that their “thin air opportunities” will show up. This reminds me of the acronym P.O.O.R that brings most people to the depths of poverty and living without growth. P.O.O.R stands for Passing Over Opportunities Repeatedly. Are you?

Do You Have Your Compass?: The Tell-Tell Way Toward Accomplishing Your Dreams

emotional-compass

 

We, the human race, have faced an array of “emotions” due to the complex and complicated situations and circumstances that we tend to get into. Even though we want all of our dreams to come true, many of us may be in “negative” circumstances that may not allow such aspirations to come to pass. However, we all work with a guage that determines if we are on the right path to accomplishing our dreams or if we have strayed. We tend to feel joy,happiness, love, peace, hope, gratitude, and many other positive emotions when we wind up in positive circumstances.

  On the other end of that spectrum, we tend to feel depression, hate, anger, sadness, pain, jealously, and other negative emotions when we land into negative circumstances. Even though all the feelings are very much detailed, there are only two types of feelings that guide us through our path to our dreams and life in general: Good and Bad. Have you ever done something in your life or was about to do something, and you recieved a “vibe” from it? Either you felt a good vibe or a bad one. Either way, you felt something right?

  When we set a goal for ourselves or decide to take that path to accomplish our dreams, or greatest compass is our feelings. Have you ever heard someone tell you to “follow your gut” or “trust your instincts”? The type of people you hear give this solem advice are ranked amongst the greatest of their time. Deep rooted in our minds is a mechanism that can’t be broken down by science or explained. Our “emotional compass” will usually tell us if we are off our path to accomplishing what we truly want.

  Yet, most people tend to “fight” those instincts and make a choice based off of what other people suggest they do. Even though those suggestions aren’t in the best interest of getting what they want. This is when we land in those negative circumstances I mentioned earlier. It’s like if your goal is in the north and you chose to go east instead based off of what the stranger up the street told you. Would you be surprised if you wind up in the wrong place?

  I can already hear the so called “experts” and critics now: “facts are facts! You should base your decisions off of statistics and what’s already been done. It’s safer with less risk!” Blah, blah, blah. These are the same people who still are spinning their wheels in the mud and wondering why they haven’t progressed yet. Even though this may be true to some degree, and I mean to SOME degree, it’s not what will get you to living your dream life and accomplishing all your goals. Learn to trust your gut again and use your emotional compass. You’ll have a 97.99999% chance of reaching your goals alot faster than to base your decisions off of “what is”.
