Better Questions Get Better Results

question mark picEveryone has heard the phrase, “if you want better answers, start with better questions.”  Too often we dismiss it as a cliche, but one of the most important services I provide for my business partners is to help them ask better, more powerful, more solution-focused questions.

 

What are your most important projects?  What one thing, more than all the others, will make a real and lasting difference?  What should you focus on today?  What can you do right NOW to move forward?

 

Most of the time, most of us ask really dumb questions.  I don’t mean to be insulting, and I certainly include myself as frequently falling into the trap of asking really dumb questions.  This week, for example, I caught myself asking, “Do I have to?” and the really mature, “Why me!?”  I don’t do that very often, and I’m always embarrassed when I catch myself, but it happens.  The key to success is to catch yourself and replace dumb questions with better ones!

 

To a huge degree, the quality of our results equals the quality of our questions, and there is no escape.  If you want to achieve more, have more, or be and do more, the quickest and surest route to success is asking better questions!

 

Practice asking yourself empowering questions.  Write them on cards or put a list on your computer, but insist that everyday you will ask the BEST questions you can!  Here are some of the questions I have on a list above my desk:
What am I grateful for in this situation?

 

What can I learn from this?

 

WHo could help or advise me?  Who has the answers I need?

 

How can I profit from this?  What can I learn?

 

What will move me forward today?

 

What’s the most important thing I can do today?

 

And then, of course there is the pesky truth that once you have asked good questions, you must be honest about the answers and take action!  Once they have asked and answered powerful questions, high achievers immediately assemble the tools, time and energy to create the results they desire!

 

They take action and leave nothing to chance.  If there are projects they wish to accomplish, they organize around those outcomes.  If necessary, they cancel appointments or skip meetings, they move money into the right accounts, and adjust their schedules so their most important projects get their best efforts of the day.

 

Unfortunately, I notice is that many people do exactly the reverse.

 

The errands, tasks, and “stuff” of the day get their best energy.  Money goes to bills and “necessities.”  Time goes to work and friends and daily have-to’s, and only what’s left over is available for their goals.  No wonder they spend their lives caught in the thick of things!

 

How about you?  Too many of us are pursuing our most important goals with the “left-overs” of life!

 

This week, I suggest three key steps:

 

1.  Thoughtfully review your most important goals and the most important projects on your dream list.  What’s on your list of most important things?

 

2.  Ask yourself empowering questions about what’s possible.  What will move you forward?  Who will help you?  Where can you start?   What’s the next step?

 

3.  Allocate resources so your most important projects get your best efforts.  Do the most important things first!  Do them when you are awake, focused and eager.  Arrange your budget so there is enough money, time, space and energy to achieve your goals.  First things deserve your very best!

Skills or Leads? 87% Made The Wrong Choice

I just learned that out of 200 people, 174 said they’d take leads over skills for their home businesses.

 

Why?

 

They need them.

 

Why?

 

They failed with their warm market and with other leads they had.

 

Where’s the logic in that?

 

If friends and relatives did NOT like what we had to say, what in the world would make anyone think strangers would like it any better?  Good Grief!

 

Everybody knows if we are going to make some money in our home businesses we need to talk to people.  And that is a SKILL.  Period.

 

LINK FOR FREE SKILLS!

 

The Go90Grow skill-based video series is creating a buzz because people are picking up a couple of quick skills, like rejection free recruiting and getting instant results.  In just a couple days close to 500 people have joined the conversation.  And results.

 

It’s skills, NOT leads, that build leaders and everybody knows you simply cannot teach what you do not know.

 

Up until a year ago, Go90Grow was probably the best kept secret about real training in MLM.  No more.  If a $30,000,000 company hired Mark J to get their hands on this training for ALL their reps it would be news.

 

Go90Grow Free Skills

 

But that’s not why it’s not a secret anymore.

 

It’s because that company had 163% growth since getting Mark’s Training for every rep.  WOW!!!

 

I know I’ve emailed people and put in on social media locations about Go90Grow a few times.  It’s because it’s important that you grab this training and learn the skills.  It’s skills that build leaders and new enrollees….and that leads to leads!!

 

It simply does not happen the other way around…..so what do you want to go hunting for today?  Skills or Leads?

 

Watch 90Grow Videos NOW

 

I can tell you and maybe you can see from my blog here that I AM a graduate of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance with Mark Januszewski and Davene Grant.   I am ALSO a graduate of the First Go90Grow class and I can tell you from my participatioin and efforts that this Course WILL make a difference in YOU and in finding leads and Growing your home business without a doubt.   Check out the free videos here to find out more about Go90Grow and what it entails.   You will thank yourself  within 90 days of joining this fabulous trainer and his amazing information!

7 Reasons Why You Should Be An Entrepreneur

Every new parent asks himself or herself why children don’t come with a manual.   Right?  Didn’t you mumble that to yourself when you became a parent?   Well, the same holds true for entrepreneurship.

 

If someone told you all the challenges you’d face in this brave new world – the sleepless nights, the messes to clean up, the tears shed – few would think the benefits outweigh the labor.

 

No one EVER said entrepreneurship was easy.

 

But with entrepreneurship comes effort.  Effort flourishes with passion.  Passion makes work feel like pleasure.  Pleasure is the gratification that you’ve worked hard to create something real, important and lasting.  And that cycle is one of the many reasons why entrepreneurship remains an enduring ideal in this country and in this world for that matter.

 

Ray Chambers, world renowned entrepreneur, philanthropist and one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People said, “The direct selling business model can level the playing field and close the gap between the haves and have-nots”.

 

When the economy is as uncertain as it is, there’s no better time to create a job for yourself by starting your own business.  Not sure it’s for you?  Consider this:

 

Stedman Graham, author of the New York Times best seller You can Make It Happen, states “you were born to be an entrepreneur, not an employee”.   “At no other time in history has there been a better opportunity for people to create or retain ownership of their lives”.  “Entrepreneurialism is not only a pathway to autonomy and financial independence, but also has a macro-level impact on community development and economic growth, providing sources of employment and higher living standards.”

 

There is no easier way to embrace entrepreneurship than direct selling.

 

1.  Job Security.  Only a generation or two ago, going into business for yourself was considered risky, and the safest route was to get a good job in a large firm.  Now, working for a traditional corporation has become the risky option.

 

2.  Make More Money.  A U.S. Federal Reserve survey shows the average household net worth for entrepreneurs is five-times more than that of the traditionally employed.  What that means in this economy is business owners are five-times more likely to come out of the recession in the black because they created income in their own businesses.

 

3.  Freedom.  When you are your own boss, you get to choose when you work, how you work and with whom you work.   Best selling author, radio host and wealth expert Dave Ramsey puts it this way:  “There’s been a lot of doom and gloom in the media this year.  The truth is, many people were laid off from jobs they hated anyway.  Many people, instead of sitting home and sulking, have used the freedom to think about what they really want to do when they grow up.  You have ideas — go do it!”

 

4.  Discover Your Hidden Potential.    “Entrepreneurship is business’s beating heart,” says Virgin mogul Richard Branson.  “Entrepreneurship isn’t about capital; it’s about ideas.  Entrepreneurship is also about excellence.  Not excellence measured in awards or other people’s approval, but the sort that one achieves for oneself by exploring what the world has to offer.”

 

5.  A Second Career.   The nation’s 78 million baby boomers are just starting to reach retirement age, yet they’re realizing that they can’t afford to retire.  What’s more, they don’t want to.  Boomers are looking for ways to give back.  They are taking the reins of their own futures and redefining their lives.  They want work that reflects their values and identity; they want to make a difference.

 

6.  You’re Sharing, Not Selling.  Jim Cramer states,  ”It turns out [direct selling] may be the best way to sell goods in the developing world where people listen to testimonials–not advertisements and retail sales people.”

 

7.  A Life Of Greater Impact.  “When you’re in business for yourself, you write your own history, you write your own success story, you write your own legacy and most important, you write your own paycheck,” said Jeffrey Gitomer, best-selling author of Little Red Book of Selling.  “Being in business for yourself gives you the opportunity to work your heart out for something you love.”

 

There you go, 7 Reasons to Become an Entrepreneur.   If you’ve made it this far through my blog there must be that burning question inside you “Can I be an entrepreneur?”    Here’s one short test to find out if you’ve got what it takes:   “Can I Be An Entrepreneur?”

The Two Choices

Life really is simple.  We have two choices to make about what we will do with our lives. 

I’m a Jim Rohn fan and recently found myself doing some self talk after reading this article by Jim Rohn.  I thought I’d share and hope that you can find it in yourself to make the right choice for you.

The Two Choices We Face by Jim Rohn

Each of us has two distinct choices to make about what we will do with our lives.  The first choice we can make is to be less than we have the capacity to be.  To earn less.  To have less.  To read less and think less.  To try less and discipline ourselves less.  These are the choices that lead to an empty life.  These are the choices that, once made, lead to a life of constant apprehension instead of a life of wondrous anticipation.

And the second choice?  To do it all!  To become all that we can possibly be.  To read every book that we possibly can.  To earn as much as we possibly can.  To give and share as much as we possibly can.  To strive and produce and accomplish as much as we possibly can.  All of us have the choice.

To do or not to do.  To be or not to be.  To be all or to be less or to be nothing at all.

Like the tree, it would be a worthy challenge for us all to stretch upward and outward to the full measure of our capabilities.  Why not do all that we can, every moment that we can, the best that we can, for as long as we can?

Our ultimate life objective should be to create as much as our talent and ability and desire will permit.  To settle for doing less than we could do is to fail in this worthiest of undertakings.

Results are the best measurement of human progress.  Not conversation.  Not explanation.  Not justification.  Results!  And if our results are less than our potential suggests that they should be, then we must strive to become more today than we were the day before.  The greatest rewards are always reserved for those who bring great value to themselves and the world around them as a result of who and what they become.

So I’ve made my decision.  I’m going to read more.  I’m going to share more.  I’m going to give more.   I don’t feel like I’ve been living up to my full potential.   I guess I’ve been on a ‘vacation’ from my life lately and it’s time to kick things into gear again.    Honestly, I’ve been on my hiatus from life because I lost a dear friend recently and it’s made me stop to mourn but to also reflect.   Ken was a doer.  He lived life to its fullest and he strived every day to make a difference in the world.  He was an inspiration.

So I’m back at it.  Time to move on and make my difference in the world just like Ken.

I’ve made my choice to stretch upward and outward to the fullest of my capabilities.  How about you?

Planning – Preparing – Expecting

I’ve been reading a little Zig Ziglar this week and thought I’d pass on some of his wisdom to you as I continue to take it all in myself.   Zig says if you Plan and you Prepare THEN you can Expect to Win.    There are lots of moving parts to Success but a few of these parts are absolutely essential to Winning. 

First, Planning has to be based on getting a clear VISION of what you want, because without a vision you don’t know which Goals to Set.  Without goals you have no targets and without targets you have nothing to Measure how you’re doing.   So you have to know how important a Vision is.  Getting a clear vision for your future is also important because it plays a huge role in the creating of DESIRE!  Desire is the mother of motivation.  Desire is the “want to” and the motor that fuels and powers sustained success.

Desire is important and vision is critical, but there are some personal qualities you must have or acquire to get the best possible results.  There are six qualities that Zig states:  honesty, character, faith, integrity, love and loyalty.  These qualities are the foundation stones in the stairway to the top.

Preparing To Win –  You may think that planning and preparing mean the same thing.  They look alike but are very different.   Preparation is a matter of equipping yourself to win with the right tools, knowledge, and support it will take to turn your dreams into plans that will make your vision into reality.   You must learn how to equip yourself in the best possible way to ensure your planning efforts will be successful.

Equipping and Preparing yourself to win requires five things:

*  You need the right knowledge to win.

*  You must continually raise your personal performance bar.

*  You must acquire tools that help you work better and faster.

*  You have to practice your skills.

*  You have to surround yourself with positive influences and people.

In summary, you have to train yourself to become a 24 hour champion.  Live it, breathe it, 24 hours a day.  Winning involves planning and preparing.  Both are constant-improvement, never-ending processes.  When you stop planning and preparing — you stop winning.  Twenty-Four hour champions continually equip themselves to win!

Zig says, when you have planned and prepared to win, you THEN have the right to expect to win.   The ultimate fruit of positive expectation is hope, and it is hope that pulls you forward in all you attempt to do.   If you expect the best because you planned success, prepared yourself to execute the plan, then you’ve earned the right to expect the best.

Desire is the mother of motivation because that is where your motiviation is born.  Properly planning and preparing heightens your expectations, which fuels your desire and drives you to become even more motivated.

When you put these practices into 24 hour mode, the transformation can be mental, spiritual or material.  Whatever the transformation is, there is a commonality to the core changes – you change the way you view yourself.  You become willing to make significant changes and can then believe you were born to win!

You must develop the skills and take the necessary actions – Plan, Prepare and Expect to Win!

Take Action Now

In 2012 I am going to become a woman of action.   It’s a new year and here I go with the resolutions.  I know that I can make these resolutions any time of the year and not just at the beginning of a new one.  When a year ends and a new one begins is a trigger to remind us to “wake up”, it’s time to make a change.

I have one BIG resolution this year and that’s to lose weight.  Am I looking forward to it? NO!  Am I looking forward to adding exercise and a new diet to my daily regimen?  NO!   What I’ve done is made a committment to myself and to a few accountability partners that I’m going to get my butt in gear and get it done once and for all.  No more “talk”.  I’m going to take action as painful as I might “think” it’s going to be.  So that leads me to the mindset.  WOW – I’ve got a big swing in the mindset about to change.    In order to do that, I’ve put my plan in place, am waiting for a few new supplements to assist me in my journey, I’ve set out my work out clothes, I’ve purchased a few exercise tools to assist me and will be heading off to the grocery store with my list.   I think the most important piece to my success is setting up my accountability partners.  That seems to be the biggest motivator for me.  I never want to let anyone down or tell someone “I didn’t do it”.   So, I’m set.  I’m ready to take the real action that’s going to make the real difference in my new years resolution.

How about you?   First, What is your “Change” that you’ve been thinking about?  Did you write it down and place it all over the house to remind you over and over what you want different in 2012?  Did you find your accountability partner yet? 

I think most of us set goals but how do you “get” goals?   That’s a whole different element to goals, is “getting” them. 

First, I think it’s education – putting myself out there to learn more about what it is I want to change.   I believe we have to push ourselves to get this part done.  We have to want it.  I’ve also learned that we have to let people help us.  Look for those experts that will help educate you.  Find that accountability partner.  Let people help you get what you want.  They are out there! 

I also realize, Life is not JUST about Getting my goals.  It’s Developing the SKILLS to help me GET my goals.   It’s true – “If you want more, you have to become more”.  SKILLS is the Key to your success.  Communication is everything.  You must learn how to communicate in order to learn those skills.   You must also make NEW decisions.  The old decisions didn’t obviously get you what you want so NEW decisions are in order.    The other element to getting your goals is Follow Through.  Successful People Follow Through.

So, here it is, the Eve of 2012.  I’ve made my decision.  I’ve connected with other Successful people.   I’ve got my plan in place.   I’m prepared.  I’ve got my accountability partners ready to go with me.  And, I’m always working on my skills. 

All that’s left is the ACTION.    2012 – Here I come.  Watch out — because I’m GETTING my Goals this year!   How About You?

Taking Care of You

 

 

 

 

 

I titled my blog ”Taking Care of You” but I should have titled it “Barb is finally stopping to take care of herself”.  

See I’m writing this for you but in all honesty, I’m talking to myself.  I’m hoping my self talk here will help each of you to stop and take care of Yourself in any manner that you have been thinking, dreaming and obsessing about but haven’t stopped to take the time to do it. 

Ok – here goes.  I am overweight.  I am DEFINITELY not my ideal weight.  It kills me to say that.  I DO NOT want to be one of those 70% of the US citizens that are overweight or obese.   I think about this ALL the time and I have for about 3 years now.   I know that being overweight can cause other health issues from cancer to diabetese and everything in between.    I am not going to allow myself to be unhealthy.  I DO have control of this.   I can Change my situation if I want to.  But how bad do I want this change?  Thinking about it does not bring back my figure as much as I’d like that to happen.  Simply starving myself hasn’t worked either.   In fact, I think it’s almost shut down my metabolism.   Whatever it is – I’m overweight and I cannot deny it any longer.   I want to change.  I want to be slim again.  I want to feel good in clothes again.   I’ve made a decision.  It’s time to take care of Barb.  If I’m not healthy I’m not going to be able to enjoy the activites that I have going on in my life now or in the future.  I must be healthier. 

Now, I’m going to interject right here that becoming healthier is not ALL I’m going to work on.   I am continually working on my Skills to help me and my business partners grow our home based businesses.    People want to know what my business is and I tell them it’s about skills.  Skills that will improve my communication with people.  Yes I want to grow my business but what I have found, is these communication skills have affected many different aspects of my life – from communicating better at my day job to talking with my son.   It’s all connected.   Here’s a great link to a great communicator.  Check it out if you’d like to learn some great communication skills yourself.  My teacher is Mark Januszewski.  Click here on the Worlds Laziest Networker to hear about the skills.

That’s my decision for me.  What’s your decision for you?   There’s got to be something nagging you in the back of your mind that you know you want different and you just haven’t taken the time to do.   This is the time.  The Time is Now.  Besides, it’s almost January 1st when we’re all suppose to be making our New Years Resolutions.  Well mine is to live a healthier lifestyle.  I’m going to be straight with you.  Something has come along that is going to help me do that.  I need something simple, with a step by step process in order to accomplish my goal to be slimmer and more healthy.   My NEW me begins January 1st.   If you want, but don’t check it out on my account, see what my solution is right here:     http://alturl.com/eymqt

So what’s your New Years Resolution going to be?   What are you going change?  It’s Decision Time.  You know that by doing nothing you’re going to be in the exact same spot next year as you are today.  Do you really want that?  Do you want to be exactly as you are today the same time next year?  I don’t think so. 

Make a decision.  You’ll be happy you did.

The Magic Is You

I’d like to share an article with you by the personal-achievement legend Jim Rohn.  I’m a huge fan of Jim and his philosophy.  This article continues to inspire me to become a better me!    It reminds me constantly that the magic in life comes from the magic within.   I’ve spent the last few years working on me and the difference is profound.   I know that I notice the difference in me and I believe others are noticing too.  

The transformation in my personal growth is driven by my perseverance for good health and financial prosperity.  But I’m not alone on my journey.  I’ve picked resources, books, and mentors along the way that have inspired me to keep moving forward, keep learning and never ever give up on myself.  

One of the keys to my success has been my participation in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance program with Mark and Davene Januszewski.   They are teaching me the skills I need to improve myself to become more effective with my home based business.  In addition to the skills, the leadership they’ve provided through a master mind program on the book ‘Think and Grow Rich” has profoundly changed the way I THINK.  We must change the way we think in order to change our circumstances.   I’m a believer now.  I believe in myself.  I believe in my path.  I believe. 

I hope you find this article by the great Jim Rohn inspirational to help you believe in you and helps you to take action to become a Magical You!

The Major key to Your Better Future is YOU by Jim Rohn

Of all the things that can have an effect on your future.  I believe personal growth is the greatest.  We can talk about sales growth, profit growth, asset growth, but all of this probably will not happen without personal growth.  It’s really the open door to it all.  In fact I’d like to have you memorize a most important phrase.  Here it is, “The major key to your better future is YOU.”

Let me repeat that.  “The major key to your better future is YOU.”  Put that someplece you can see it every day, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, at the office, anywhere where you can see it every day.  The major key to your better future is YOU.  Try to remember that every day you live and think about it.  The major key is YOU.

Now, there are many things that will help your better future  If you belong to a strong, dynamic, progressive company, that would help.  If the company has good products and services you are proud of, that would certainly help.  If there were good sales aids, that would help, good training would certainly help.  If there is a strong leadership, that will certainly help.  All of these things will help, and of course, if it doesn’t storm, that will help.  If your car doesn’t break down, that will help.  If the kids don’t get sick, that will help.  If the neighbors stay halfway civil, that will help.  If your relatives don’t bug you, that will help.  If it isn’t too cold, if it isn’t too hot, all those things will help your better future.  And if prices don’t go much higher and if taxes don’t get much heavier, that will help.  And if the economy stays stable, those things will all help.  We could go on and on with the list; but remember this, the list of things that I’ve just covered and many more–all put together–play a minor role in your better future.

The major key to your better future is you.  Lock your mind onto that.  This is a super-important point to remember.  The major key is you.  A friend of mine has always answered when asked, “How do you develop an above-average income?”  by saying, “Simple. Become an above-average person.  Work on you.” My friend says, “Develop an above-average handshake.”  He says, “A lot of people want to be successful, and they don’t even work on their handshake.  As easy as that would be to start, they let it slide.  They don’t understand.”  My friend says, “Develop an above-average smile.  Develop an above-average excitment.  Develop an above-average dedication.  Develop an above-average interest in other people.”  He says, “To have more, become more.”  Remember, work harder on yourself than you do on your job.  For a long time in my life, I didn’t have this figured out.

Strangely enough, with two different people in the same company, one may earn an extra $100 a month, and the other may earn a $1,000.  What could possibly be the difference?  If the products were the same, if the training was the same, if they both had the same literature, the same tools.  If they both had the same teacher, the same compensation plan, if they both attended the same meetings, why would one person earn the $100 per month and the other person earn the $1,000?

Remember, here is the difference:  The difference is personal — inside, not outside, inside.

You see the real difference is inside you.  In fact, the difference IS you. Someone once said, “The magic is not in the products.  The magic is not in the literature.  The magic is not in the film.  There isn’t a magic meeting, but the magic that makes things better is inside you.”  And personal growth makes this magic work for you.

The magic is in believing.  The magic is in daring.  The magic is in trying.  The real magic is in persevering.  The magic is in accepting.  It’s in working.   The magic is in thinking.  There is magic in a handshake.  There is magic in a smile.  There is magic in excitement and determination.  There is real magic in compassion and caring and sharing.  There is unusual magic in strong feeling.  You see, all that comes from inside, not outside.  So the difference in inside you.  The real difference is you.  You are the major key to your better future.
