Do You Have a Contingency Plan ?

I was just listening to some of my counterparts in our community sharing how starting an online business for one of their members has really helped her because she just had 2 unforeseen circumstance in her family and because of the impact those events had on her, she was not able to work for about a year and she was so grateful that because she had learnt to use the SFM system, it was still generating income for her even though she was not working.

Similarly for my counterparts themselves also - one of them was not feeling well for a week, but the system still continued to generate income for them.

Do you have a plan to support yourself financially when things go wrong in your life - someone falls sick, circumstances change and you find you need an alternative source of income that will continue to provide for you and your loved ones.

You can start today to prepare yourself, learn the skills and start putting them into practice to work for you so that when the time comes, you can be fully independent and not need to rely on a job that you have to commute to every day and trade your time and your life for money instead of living the life that you want, spending your days doing the things that you want to do, and with the people that you want to do them with instead of what someone else says you should do – you should commute long hours to and from work each day, leave your family and kids in someone else’s care while you go and earn a living and only have real, unadulterated time with and for them only on the weekends, and only a yearly holiday, and only on a schedule that won’t interfere or clash with your boss’ and colleagues’ work and other priorities, instead of your own priorities …

I am grateful that I have found this new path and contingency plan so that I can be independent and support myself & my family. Yes, it does require a huge mindset shift since I have been so used to the traditional way of trading my time to earn a monthly paycheck, but with an open mind and a willingness to learn new skills in this new digital economy, I know I am on the right path toward my true freedom from a corporate 9 to 5 job !

And if you are interested to get yourself similarly prepared with a contingency plan and yes, more than that actually – a true freedom lifestyle lived on your own terms, then I’ll be happy to work with you in your journey !

Towards a life lived by your own terms !

How Can I Help You Move Forward ?

Starting a new business program is a big commitment.

And like any sensible individual, you've got a list of questions you need answered in order to decide whether this program is a fit for you.

So, here are some of the questions I had before I got started:

Q: Why is there an application to join the program?

This program’s most valuable asset is hands down its exclusive private community. Speak to any member and I’ll bet you they will say the community has been a CRUCIAL aspect in them getting results. It certainly has been for me! 

The list of reasons for this is virtually endless and almost every individual will benefit from the community slightly differently. But the one thing you’ll hear from almost everyone who’s a member is that we have a very unique culture that thrives on being extremely supportive, knowledgeable, friendly, and active.

Now, while many people may not necessarily go out looking for an online community to join, it is what makes this program so special, and to make sure it stays that way, there’s an application that needs to be submitted in order to join.

This simply helps to protect the integrity of what Co-Founders, Stuart and Jay have been building since 2010 by safeguarding their community from those who are not a good fit for the culture. This is not a numbers game.

Rest assured, if either party (you or the company) finds that you are not a good fit for the program, you will get a very speedy refund of your $29.95.

Q: What exactly does the application involve?

The application is a series of simple questions that enable you to introduce yourself and explain why you are looking to start or grow a successful online business. It takes just a minute or two to complete, and then you’ll get instant access to the introductory training module, The System of Selling Online, the moment you hit “Submit.”

(N.B. You can skip most of the questions if you prefer. But a consultant will call you to have a quick chat instead.)

Q: What exactly will I learn in the Introductory training, The System of Selling Online?

Simply put, you’ll learn the most powerful selling system for marketing and selling almost any product or service online. The best part? It involves zero cold calling and no pushy or sleazy sales tactics, and once set up, it never sleeps. True story! It works 24/7, 365!

Q: I'm brand new to this sort of thing. Will this work for me?

While results are not guaranteed, this program is designed to be step-by-step and assumes you haven’t built a successful online business before. It’s also resulted in thousands of members making their first ever sale online. So it works 🙂

However, if you’ve got a business already, you can note this in your application and a consultant will then recommend the best learning path for you based on your personal goals with your existing business.

Q: Is this training just theory, or is there some practical training in the course as well?

You get both because you need both to have a breakthrough in your online marketing and sales. This education will teach you the SFM framework so you completely understand it, but you’ll get more than just the theory.

You’ll also be guided through steps that will help you apply your education to your business. If you haven’t got an existing business, you’ll be walked through the process, so you can start making sales and commissions right away.

Q: I'm just starting out, and I’m concerned that I don’t have enough clarity for my business idea yet to really benefit from the course. Should I come back when I am more clear?
 

This is actually the perfect time to start. Go through the introductory training, and you'll gain the clarity you need as a result of the steps you’ll be taken through.

Q: I'm so busy. As great as the program sounds, I can't imagine finding the time for a course right now. Any advice?

Did you ever hear that quote about not sacrificing the important for the urgent? That's you right now. Of course your to-do list seems urgent. But what if those to-dos aren't going to actually move the needle on your goals?

Take the time to go through the introductory module and you’ll be surprised to find that you’ll find the time once you get going, the insights start flooding in, and the light bulb moments arrive.

Submit Your $29.95 Risk-free Application Here !
 

Q: How will I access the course?

The material is all digital, so you don't have to wait for anything to arrive via ye olde postal service. You can access the trainings on any device that's connected to the Internet. If you have Apple TV or the like, you can even watch it on your big screen television. Fancy!

Submit Your $29.95 Risk-free Application Here !
 

Q: How long do I have to access the materials?

You can access the trainings anytime, from anywhere and for as long as the training is left up within the platform, which will be many, many years. Once you register, you'll be able to use this resource over and over for years to come.

Q: Will I have direct access to Stuart and Jay?

Co-founders, Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek along with the entire internal staff love interacting with members. Stuart even goes through the discussion threads regularly to discuss your most burning questions by holding various live webinars each month so to interact with everyone -- and it's a lot cheaper than consulting!

There is a 30-day money-back guarantee. Simply send a cancellation request to the Customer Loyalty Team, and get your money back. Very few people ever have because they start using the framework and get incredible results in their life and business. It's worth it! It's also just one click from your dashboard to cancel and get a refund. No messing around with email or phone calls.

P.S. Of course, you may be wondering how well this all works. I could tell you, "Hey, this will make you rich and successful beyond your wildest dreams,” but I think it's better to keep it real and just point you toward some =>> Success Stories.

Of course it goes without saying. You get out what you put in.

Can I Do It ?

You may be thinking about this opportunity of starting your own online business and wonder : Can I really do this ?

Well, the real question you should be asking yourself is : How BADLY do I want this ?

Yes, your life may be ok now or quite bearable now but is that how you really want it to be ?

You hear about people succeeding and achieving what they want, of making it in their careers, of getting what they want in life … and you say to yourself, “That’s all well and good for them – they have all the breaks, all the support, all the guts, all the resources, etc … that’s why they are where they are !”

Really ?

Did you know that they were frustrated with how their life was and they had a dream and it didn’t just stay in their dreams or daydreams ….

They made a firm resolve that they weren’t going to stay there and accept the status quo any more. They looked at themselves and the other aimless, resigned, empty, stressed, unhappy faces around them in the subway, in traffic, during lunch and tea breaks, people just trying to get through each day, just to get a paycheck at the end of the month and a vacation once a year …

And they finally decided that they had to do something about their own life – they knew that for anything to change, for them to get out of this 9 to 5 grind, to get a better, more meaningful life for themselves, THEY HAD TO CHANGE !

That’s what I decided, too. I worked at my last job for more than 20 years - it wasn’t exactly exciting and fulfilling all the time and was at times even stressful and demanding but it helped pay the bills and maybe a vacation every few years, so I stayed on it. Until one fine day, we were informed that our jobs had been outsourced. Then, as was the normal way we were all brought up and trained to think, I started looking for another job. Then after some time of searching, I said to myself : Why am I still going to put myself in the same position where I could again be laid off ? Then going through all the stress and demands of adjusting and outperforming at another new job would have been a waste of time again as I would have to start all over again after that.

So that’s where I found this opportunity to start an online business and where I learned and am still learning all the new skills relevant to this digital economy - of websites, videos, marketing, etc and decided that I was going to take this new path and not subject myself to the whims of a boss and give my whole life just building someone else’s dream while my own just wastes away waiting for this far-off time called retirement where I could then really begin to live my life. I was inspired by both the younger as well as older people who have joined this community of entrepreneurs that no matter my age, I could do this with the education, live training and support provided and begin NOW to live my BEST life.

This is it – I wasn’t going to put myself where, sometime in the future, I would look back at my life and say in regret – I wish I had gone for it – had taken the plunge and given myself the opportunity to make the change in my life, to go all out to pursue that path that will give me and my loved ones the chance to live the life that we want and deserve, instead of playing it safe in a secure but dead-end job where I would continue to trade my time and my life for money and only have 2-day weekends to actually live life while for the rest of the other 5 weekdays each week, I would be chained to a job and building someone else’s dream and empire instead of my own, and all the while living a safe, mediocre life, just waiting for retirement to hopefully live it up … hoping I would still have the required time, energy, health and resources left by then …

That’s why it is now my desire to bring others to this same realization that in this new digital economy, we don’t need to be enslaved to a regular corporate job as there is a way we can harness the internet and digital tools to generate an income around our passions. All you require is the desire to learn and acquire these new digital skills, apply them appropriately and have the desire to serve and add value to the lives of others.

So, Yes, You Can Definitely Do This, If You Want It BADLY Enough – all you need is a Belief in Yourself and a Resolve That You Definitely Want This and just as long as you do not allow race, age, gender, station in life, limiting beliefs and unfounded fears to hold you back !

I appreciate hearing from you. Do let me know if you ever have any questions.

You CAN Do This !

Will It Be Easy ?

Was it easy to learn to walk, to learn to ride a bicycle, to learn to drive ?

Was it easy to learn a new subject in school, to learn a new language, to pick up a new skill ?

There is always the initial phase where we need to learn the basics, the foundations – these take a bit of time as we are starting from ground zero when we are learning something for the first time.

But as we learn and apply the basics and have a good grounding in them and we persist and keep practising, we will expand our knowledge base and as we build on the proper foundation and gain experience, and we master the subject or skill through constant practice and feedback, we can progress steadily.

It is no different when we want to build an online business – we need to learn the basics and then when we have built a good foundation and become better through experience, we can progress to scale our business.

Granted we may encounter challenges or should I say – we WILL encounter challenges – our website doesn’t work properly, our conversion tracking fails, our marketing doesn’t work as we had hoped, our messaging doesn’t connect, our ads aren’t getting the traction, etc, and we have to keep making corrections and testing, keep attending the webinars and seeking answers.

So, as with any new skill, it takes time, persistence and perseverance to build and grow our business and together with the support of the community and coaches, we will eventually get there.

I’m reminded of Thomas Edison – he didn’t consider it a failure when he didn’t get the light bulb working in his first few attempts. No, he persisted after each failure and when asked, he answered, “I didn’t fail 1000 times – I just found 1000 ways how not to do it !”    So, keep persevering !

Take Action Towards Your Goals !

Do you find that every day, its easy to get distracted from our goals ?

Distractions like doing what we like, taking it easy, rather than what we need to.

Distractions to take yet another break rather than pushing on.

Distractions to give up because we hit a wall.

I've come across those, too, in my journey to build my own online business.

Sometimes I get distracted by overwhelm also because there is so much learning to do when we are starting out, and we feel like its too hard and we won't make it.

That is the time when we have to take a step back and remember our goals and why we need to reach those goals, who will benefit from us reaching them and how we will feel when we attain them.

Then, wake yourself up, re-direct your gaze back onto your goals and take action to do one thing every single day to move yourself towards your goals.

Just ONE thing every day to move you towards your goals - yes, consistency of action is what will bring the desired results.

Of course, if you have someone who has already attained the goal that you are reaching for and they can help and coach you, helping you to avoid pitfalls and take the correct, faster route, then, that is so much better and will definitely accelerate your results !

And one more thing - haters, jeerers, naysayers there will always be ... I was hurt at first by them and then i quickly realise that they actually are to be pitied as they have no grand goals in their life to work towards, that's why their lives are so shallow that they have to put someone down so that in some way, maybe that would elevate them up in the eyes of their friends or the people around them ... they don't realise that either people don't care or actually people have a poorer opinion of those who belittle others because they themselves are so insecure and they are not open and large and brave enough to step up and declare their dreams and go after them with no fear.

Just remember that when you attain your dreams, will what those naysayers, jeerers, haters said even remotely matter ? In fact, when you have attained your goals and dreams, won't those small minded people still be where they are ? So save and focus your energies for your own goals and dreams so as to accelerate them !

All the best in your journey to attain your goals !

I'd love to hear how you are doing in your journey towards your goals and appreciate hearing from you. Let me know if you ever have any questions 🙂

Cheers !

Who Better Than You ?

Yes, in life we know we have to make sacrifices …

We sacrifice our time and finances to help a sibling come up and have a better chance at school,  college and life.

We sacrifice our own personal time and finances so that we can provide for our family so that they can have a comfortable life and our kids to have a good education to give them a good start in life.

In such times, more often than not, we find that it is not a sacrifice at all as we do it out of love for the people we care about and we see it as a worthwhile investment in their lives.

In the same way, and more so in fact, we should realize that who better should we invest in than in ourselves, the provider or co-provider who makes those investments in our family possible in the very first place.

We all want a better life for ourselves and our loved ones – we want to spend more time together with them and enjoy life as a family and provide the best we can for them.

Yes, who better to invest in than in you yourself so that you and your family can truly live the life that you always wanted and deserve !

And when it comes to investing in ourselves, more often than not we think of the traditional way of going back to school to better our education in the hopes that that will give us better chances of landing a better job or get a promotion.

Well, that may be one way of doing it but that requires us to invest our funds and another year or two or more to get the education and qualifications and even after that, it would still be another job that we are hoping to land, albeit a better-paying one, and often times, it’ll come with more responsibilities, stress and more hours away from home on the job again, which is counterproductive to our goal of spending more time with our family and living life the way we want.

Having an online business gives us the kind of flexibility that we are looking for - to choose the times and hours we want to work, so that we can have the time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life like having breakfast together, dropping and picking our kids to and from school and attending all their school events, spending time at home doing things together with our spouse and kids, being able to visit mum and dad more often and help them whenever they need you, going off on a holiday whenever we want to ... Just loving and being the present parent, spouse, son or daughter that your family always wanted you to be …

Don’t continue to just accept what life has dealt you with thus far – instead resolve to start TODAY to begin to live the life you want and deserve and build the better future of yourself and your family !

Use Your Tool Well !

The tools we own are usually of some value and use to us as they usually help us perform the tasks we need to do more easily.

There are the simple ones like the screw driver, scissors, knife, pen and frying pan and the more complicated ones like the rice-cooker, microwave oven and washing machine and even more complicated ones like your computer, your mobile phone or your car.

Usually the simpler ones cost less to own and replace and the more complicated ones cost a bit more.

But there is one that is of utmost and supreme use to you and you don’t even have to purchase it as it has already been gifted to you.

Yes, You are that invaluable tool that you have been gifted with so use that tool !

The main components of that tool are :

Your mind – the ability to reason, to innovate, to create …

Your soul – to love, care, express, feel all kinds of emotions - indignation, empathy, joy, sorrow …

Your body – houses your soul and mind, helps you accomplish what your mind wants to create or innovate, embodies your soul and gives expression to it – a hug, a kiss, a pat, laughter, tears, speech, handshake, twinkle of the eye, helping hands and feet – that can go places, do things, help ourselves and help others …

Don‘t leave any component dormant, neglected or abused - use them in the correct way and maintain them well and they will serve you well. Keep them well-oiled, sharpened, well-nourished and well-maintained.

Just as you don’t nourish your body with junk food but with nutritious food, so also do the same for your mind and soul. And as you keep your mind and soul active, invigorated and stimulated with the right kind of input and output, do so for your body too.

Use, nourish and maintain your tool well and it will serve you well !

Share Your Story

Share your story to encourage someone along the way … there is no such thing as “I have nothing to share” …

Share what you went through – the fears, the heartaches, the pains, the loneliness, the confusion …

Share the triumph, the enlightenment, the breakthrough, the joy, the peace, the realization, the knowing, the strength, the gratitude …

Your life IS important in the web of things …

It connects to other lives around …

It stretches out a hand of understanding and friendship …

It gives a nod of “It’s okay, you’ll get through this” …

It claps and says “Well done ! There you are – you could do it after all, right ?”

It encourages “Yes, give it a go – you never know until you take that step and try it !” and if you fail the first time, that never means you are a failure – it just means you have discovered a way not to do it …. And just go and try doing it another way, not recklessly but with the hindsight of what you didn’t do right the first time, what preparation you missed out on, what resources you didn’t garner the first time …

So, share your story … it will encourage someone, it will remind them of something they had forgotten, it will prod them on to do better and to reach out also … and light another candle along the way …

Take it with a Pinch of Salt

When you start something new, it’s a bit scary at first as you’ve just gotten out of your comfort zone.

You look around, take your first few steps, stumble around … that’s ok …

If a baby says, “No, I shouldn’t try to stand - it’s scary to take those first few steps”, then he’ll be sitting on that bum for a long time and there won’t be any progress.

But, not him – he’s just raring to go and try out new things, modeling after those around him. “Hey, since those adults are doing it, so can I !”

Not so different from starting your own online business – it’ll sound scary at first as you’ve never thought about it before or even the possibility of it (just like me !) but looking around at your models, you gain confidence that, hey, they have done it before so why not me ?

Then there will be those who laugh at you or haters who deride you … that’s also ok – its normal as some people just express their own fears and insecurities differently … we can tell by their reactions the kind of people they are but let’s not go there today …

Take it with a pinch of salt and give yourself a pat on the back that, hey, you are doing it and taking those first crucial steps … and do you realize that no baby doesn’t walk so it’s proof that you will get there if you don’t give up … there will be a lot of learning but the fun has only begun !

So, You CAN start TODAY to build the life you want and that you and your family deserve !

Actionless Inspiration

Stressed on the job, looking for inspiration, trying to get pumped up just to get through another week …

Why do we do that ?

So that we can be inspired and re-energized just to go back to the same job, the same routine where we are still trapped in the same 9 – 5 grind, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year, just treading on the hamster wheel, not really going anywhere, just working towards that month-end paycheck, the weekends and that once a year, 2-week vacation … (yes, I've done that countless times, too ...)

After some years of doing that, we find that we're still missing out on our kids’ school activities, spending quality time with our loved ones every day and not just on weekends where we just don’t have enough hours to spend doing the things we want to do together, spending time with grandpa and grandma, going on picnics, having a leisurely meal together, just simple bonding activities … or meeting with friends, meeting new people, pursuing our hobbies and passions, learning new skills, volunteering our time and services, travelling ...

Is it really possible to earn a living and still be able to do all that our hearts desire ?

In this new digital economy, the internet has made it possible and many have already done it.

No more commuting to a day job, spending the best hours of our day and life there and then commuting back home again and only having the last part of our evenings left where we can spend precious little time before our kids have to finish their homework and go to bed …

You can start today to build the life you want and that you and your family deserves.

Focus on What You Want

Did you ever feel a panicky feeling when things don’t seem to be going right ?  Where what you planned to get accomplished by a certain date doesn’t look like it’s going to materialize ?

At that stage, calm yourself, slow the breathing ….

Focus on what you want, not what you don't want or what may seem to be looming.
Keep your eye on accomplishing what you planned, make the required adjustments to the course and focus your energies into what will help you reach your goal.


Don’t keep thinking about what you're going to do if you don’t succeed because then you are wasting your energy on thinking about failure rather than harnessing it to give you that extra push you need to try to make your goal work.

I've been guilty of that, too, for sure …

So I’m just sharing with you that I face it too when starting and building up my online business. In the beginning, there seems to be a lot to get done but we all start there so look up and keep moving forward.

And I look forward to be able to help you get started on your own online business, too. Like anything worth having, you’ll need focus to get what you want and it’s always good to have help along the way too.

False Identities and Limiting Labels

Do you allow yourself to be limited by a label? 

It might be ... 
... a childhood nickname ... "Fatty", "Dumbo", “Lanky”, “Shortie” ...
... a rejection by a teenage crush ... "You'll never be good looking enough", “You’re not the sporty type” ...
... an event at work ... being bypassed for a promotion, recalling that first pink slip ...
... something that happened at home ... your child or aged parent hurting himself or herself under your care, your spouse abusing or rejecting you, even a failed marriage ...

All these events could cause us to give ourselves ...
... an identity that is FALSE ...
... a label that prevents us from being ALL THAT WE CAN BE.

We are who we are and have our own unique individuality so let’s break free from these false identities and limiting labels !

Ask for Help !

During the last few days, I was trying to get my ad running … then I had to deal with why it didn’t get approved.

Then I had to set up the campaigns, then had to deal with why there were no impressions or views …

All brand new stuff that I had never done before !

Yep, that is just a small taste of what Affiliate Marketing is !

Sometimes we feel that, “Oh, I shouldn’t bother people with my problems but I should just try to figure it out myself first …”

Well, if you want to go through lots of frustration and wasted time, then, yes, you could do that … but most times, its good to ask for help to get quicker results ! Of course, try not to keep bothering the same person – give them a break from you sometimes or they may run the other way when they next see you coming ! And also, it’s good way to get different perspectives and learn even some more new stuff ! And, of course, remember to try to give back in some way to the person who helped you ...

And then of course, there is good ole Google and Youtube for answers, too !

The main thing is to keep learning and keep growing every single day – it’ll expand your horizons and outlook and perspectives ! You can only be better for it !

Gratitude

Each day, live in an attitude of gratitude.

  1. At the start or at the end of the day, think of 5 to 10 things you are grateful for each day, then take time to really feel the gratitude for each of them and give thanks for them e.g. the happy, energetic kids, your supportive uncomplaining spouse, your mum, dad, and siblings who help out when they can, your healthy body - strong arms to help you lift and do things, strong legs that can carry you wherever you want to go, your colleagues, advisors, church mates, the people at the mall or grocery store …. whoever it is who you come in contact with and who touched your life and whom you can touch in return …. Be thankful for the opportunity to do so …

       Your computer that helps you do a zillion things - search for information, entertainment, motivation, inspiration, your car or the transport system that gets you where you need or want to go, to work, to shop, to a holiday, etc …. Be grateful

  • Then send love to 3 people who are bothering you … whether they are causing you anxiety or otherwise … say a prayer for them or just talk things out with them … it helps discharge the negative energy in your system …
  • Take 5 minutes to ask for guidance for the day – think about your goals and what you can do today, this week, this month to bring you closer to them – seek guidance and be open to guidance
  • At the end of each day, week, month – review and see how much closer you are to achieving your goals and adjust what needs to adjusted. Be grateful and ask for guidance to move forward.

Be grateful and be blessed !

The points in the above tips were shared by Bob Proctor – I just added a bit of my own touches here and there … J

Diversions and Speed Bumps

Nope, its not about driving …

It’s when someone pours cold water on your efforts, and tells you – no, you better go back and travel by the easy, well-beaten path – the safe way that everyone travels by …

The trouble is – they don’t see the Dream that you see … they don’t know that you had already circled back countless times, trying to reach that destination, that goal that beakons … they don’t know about the diversions you had to get around, the speed bumps that kept appearing to slow you down, the warning lights about low fuel in your motivation gas tank, traffic jams that slow your progress …

Did you ever notice that for those not going anywhere, no destination to reach, with no goal to accomplish, they never encounter diversions or speed bumps, red or amber lights, warning indicators of low fuel in the gas tank, traffic jams ? Yep, a stationery car doesn’t have those kinds of problems.

So it’s alright – just know that it is an indication that you are on the journey and that you have chartered a destiny for yourself and you WILL get there if you just keep on going.

It’s okay to take short breaks to recharge and re-fuel and re-assess where you are on the journey and make any necessary course corrections, knowing that the path is not always straight.

But just keep continuing to believe in yourself and trust yourself and the journey.

And remember : the PRIZE awaits …

Take Imperfect Action

I had never done a video advertisement before and worried about how I could do it but I realize that the journey of a thousand steps begins with the very first one – so I went for it !

I worked on my script, wrote it and then re-wrote and re-wrote and re-wrote it.  And that was because of all the value and ideas that I got from the many webinars that I attended and I wanted to include all of it in my ad !

And then the filming began !

I had never taken a video of myself before so that was another new experience for me – I started by propping up my phone on books and boxes and finally remembered that I had bought a clip-on phone holder for my daughter so I borrowed it from her ! Lesson here: Innovate, think of possible solutions however imperfect !

So I worked on and re-worked and re-worked and re-worked my ad.

And that was how I finally ended up with what I believe was an ad that was quite good enough to launch.

That’s the main lesson – overcome your fear and inadequacy when you try to do something you are afraid of or not confident about and just begin to take imperfect action and slowly but surely, you’ll get there ! You don’t have to be perfect – in fact – be realistic and don’t wait till you are because that will be a long, long time - you just need to START and keep learning, persisting and getting better every day !

Come back to Focusing

None of us ever plan on procrastinating  - we all have good intentions but so many things get in the way of our accomplishing them !

That’s why doing the things that leaders do daily really helps us to focus on what’s important and yet also do what is necessary – like developing ourselves, working on our mindsets, focusing on our goals, working on the correct activities that bring us towards our goals and not just busyness, etc – this is just one of the many things we learn in this SFM journey to build our own businesses.

And that’s why I can vouch that this SFM journey that I am on is really bona fide as it gives us the step-by-step processes on what to do and how to do it and there is so much support in terms of live webinars to help keep us on track, webinars to help us shift our limited mindsets, others to answer our questions on how to better grow our businesses, and more. And even straight talk when we need it - Ouch !

So, even though you may have procrastinated on taking the required steps to bring you closer to your goals or have just strayed into exploring other paths that you thought could help you achieve your goal of time and financial freedom but you realize that they don’t quite cut it, then do come back to focusing on the opportunity in front of you – take the first step to find out what the SFM journey can do for you and if it can help you achieve your goals. And myself and the community are here to support you !

Taking Action on My First Post !

Good Morning and Welcome !

Today I'm doing my very first post onto my website. To be honest, it took me much longer than it should to get to this point but I was dealing with a bit of overwhelm as there was so much curriculum and learning to do.

But I'm grateful for the curriculum as we are encouraged and reminded all the time, throughout the curriculum and at live training webinars and recordings, to do the 5 things leaders do daily and the daily method of operation.

So, here I am taking action and doing my very first post !

That's why I love this path that I feel so fortunate to have come across because I am shown step by step what to do and encouraged to do it and if I do get stuck, there is the community and the Customer Loyalty Team to turn to for assistance. They also have challenges to get us started like the 90 day Blueprint Journey where we record each day what we are doing so that we are accountable and not just dilly-dallying and fiddling about.

It actually also about overcoming a fear or inadequacy that I had that I'm not good at blogging and wouldn't know what to blog about.

But I know that the journey begins with us taking the very first step and as we progress along, the path ahead will become clearer so that's what I like to share with you. Sometimes we just have to get out of learning and researching mode and take that first step to Just Do It to effect that change !
