Don’t Settle For Half Way

dreams-poker-allin

As the NFL football season fast approaches, we see in the news how each team is planning for a run for the Super Bowl. Even teams that were 3-13 last year are talking the championship talk. How many head coaches would get raises for saying that they are hoping for a .500 season?

Having the vision of winning the championship is what makes a team come together. A coach has to share the vision with enough conviction that the players all buy in to the same vision as if it were their own. This is not as easy as it sounds and it is why many head coaches become motivational speakers after they retire.

The daily details are important, of course, but without that target on the horizon, a team has little chance of capitalizing on the good decisions made during the preparatory stages. When the adversity becomes unmanageable, having that unified front all striving for the same end can mean the difference between a team that gives up and one that pulls through.

Set your goals, but do not forget to create the vision that will make those goals the stepping stones to achieving that vision. Your daily decisions will be much more productive if you have found your vision. Even your dreams will fall into place with your vision once you have internalized it. That is when you seem to become unstoppable!

So if you are finding that your struggles are making it harder than you believed possible to achieve your goals, it may mean you forgot to internalize your vision. While this is something that is unique to each person, and not easy to describe, the process must be gone through in order to create your own success. Take the time to write your ambitions, your dreams, your cravings and then see what ultimately is at the center of all of those things. Our dreams and visions are really already inside us, but until we actually sort them out from the chaos within ourselves, we are not going to get where we think we want to go.

Some great books to help you with this are Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, Napoleon Hill’s Think And Grow Rich and David J. Schwartz’ The Magic of Thinking Big. As a powerful add on, you will also want to use The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Personal Workbook to go along with your reading.

Take your vision development seriously, because it is the one thing that will change your effectiveness and productivity more than all the goal setting alone can do. If you are already working hard and seeing limited results, it may just mean your vision is in need of correction. Schedule some time to hone your vision, and see your productivity soar as your time is spent on activities that take you toward your dreams and vision, instead of on things that hold you back.

Sweating The Small Stuff?

As a supervisor in the retail industry, we had managers who were so detail oriented that I could not believe they didn’t have a stroke when they walked in the doors each day. I remember them walking through an aisle and adjusting signs so that they were perfectly straight, adjusting product so that you couldn’t slide a knife between them and checking for dust.

Sure, in retail, you have to have everything perfect for the customer. Even though within minutes after the doors open for business, the place becomes a wreck because those same customers don’t care if they just unfolded every T-Shirt on the table just to find that they like the T-Shirts on the other table better.

Customers want everything their way, they will complain about the way you put something in their cart if they are in a mood. As a business person now, I have learned that I want my customers to feel special, but just because I work hard to make their experience special, does not mean I have to lose my cool when it does not happen the way it was supposed to happen.

The problem is not the customer, but me. I should do my job and trust that everyone else is going to do their job, too. If I spend my waking hours wondering about a potential problem, then I am being non-productive and probably harming my health. It is called sweating the small stuff. If a customer did not receive an email when their shipment left, I should find out why, and correct the problem – while also easing my customer’s mind by sending him an email apologizing for not getting them an email right away, and addressing what we are doing to fix this going forward.

But when this happens to you, what is the course of action you should take?

Sometimes, remembering to breathe is the hardest part.

All Expense Paid Trip To Hawaii!

How often do you see Pat Sajak giving someone an all expense paid trip on Wheel Of Fortune? It seems like daily, right?

But the randomness of actually getting on the show, then being lucky enough to win the trip, makes it seem like way more work than the reward.

But my new business, 49 Dollar Cellular, is offering hotel and airfare to Hawaii if you sign up and help get 90 other people to save money on their cellular bill by October 31, 2012.

I know what you are thinking… “90 people! That is an awful lot of people!”

It seems like it at first glance. But think about this. How many people do you know that are tired of spending $100 or more on their cellular bill each month? Do you think they may know someone that wants to save money and go to Hawaii, too?

Once you start working as a team (and we will be helping you) with your new people, you will be getting closer to the Hotel and Airfare to Hawaii. My goal is to have at least 10 people going to Hawaii with us.

Are you coming?

Investing IN YOUR Business And Yourself

stockvault-calculator-and-receipt-book135565Business training, tools and services are valuable to a successful business.

Thousands upon thousands of dollars are invested each day by the average business owner to help them increase their bottom line.

But if you are reading this email, you don’t want to be an average business owner, do you?

That is why I recommend you take advantage of Warrior Special Offers rather than pay too much for business training, marketing tools or marketing services. Warrior Special Offers (or WSO for short) are special pricing for products that are getting ready to release to the general public (if they ever make it to the general public).

The Warrior Forum is a great resource for business owners of all types, but it is mostly inhabited by online marketers. The reason they offer special prices for their products to Warrior Forum members is to get feedback from other members, testimonials and help get ideas for new features. This lets them improve their products before selling them to the general population at an increased price.

Since the Warrior Forum is a nightmare to navigate, a great place to find these bargains is on WSOInsiders.com

WSOInsiders takes the searching for good special offers very seriously, and most of them get posted on the blog. But, if you want the most up to date offers, the WSOInsiders Fan Page on Facebook is even more cutting edge. The offers get posted within minutes of being launched, so you have a good chance of getting the best price (many offers are in a dime sale format – where every so many buyers the price increases).

I highly recommend you “like” the WSOInsiders Fan Page as well as adding WSOInsiders.com to your feed reader.

Here are the links:

Is Your Door Ready To Be Opened!

I have been very fortunate to be “in the loop” when new projects are about to launch. My last success has netted me over $100,000 and it resulted from a friend on skype telling me that I needed to check out this opportunity right now… and I followed through on it immediately.stockvault-do-not-disturb-sign-on-door131466

stockvault-welcome-sign-on-door131469I had told hundreds of my friends about this opportunity, and because of the way I delivered the information or the timing of things in their lives, they hesitated by about a day, and they lost out on a huge potential business. Of course, if I had known more about how to position my own signups, I would have made it much more profitable for both myself and the new signups. Now I understand the dynamics a lot better, and I would do it (and I am doing it) differently.

In any case, when an opportunity knocks, you should be prepared to rip the door off the hinges to open it. Don’t let it get away, because when you are ready and the opportunity comes around, you will see some real magic happen.

This week, two opportunities knocked on my door. I had to decide whether I was going to answer the door or put out the do not disturb sign. I decided to open the door.

The two opportunities are both very lucrative, by the way, and will not conflict with each other in any way – which means I can promote both without having any issues.

So what are these opportunities?

I can tell you about one of them. It is an affiliate program for a software program that everyone who does anything with a computer needs. One of my friends figured out a way to make $150 commissions on a $6 product. I was intrigued, and now I am excited about it. This really is an easy way to generate an extra income. Check out the video here: http://ultimate.cashblueprintblog.com/earn-500-a-day-the-easy-way/

The second opportunity requires that you sign a Non Disclosure Agreement before we can tell you about it. If you are serious about opening the door to an opportunity, fill out this NDA and open a support ticket at http://replytomicheal.com

We will send you the link to get more info once you have filled out the NDA. We are doing this manually, so please be patient.

Glass Half Full Of What?

stockvault-glass-of-milk132470I had a client who wanted me to run their business and help them make a lot of money. When I started, they had almost no competition and a thriving business. People enjoyed the great service, cleanliness of the business and the snacks being served. Soon, a few competitors opened their doors within a couple miles of this business.

Business declined a small amount, but my clients reacted in a very negative manner. Instead of seeing this as an opportunity to outshine the competition, they cut their expenses in anticipation of a prolonged drought of customers – cutting service, eliminating some of the cleaning products being used in favor of cheaper, less effective ones and eliminating some of the sodas and snacks that customers were expecting when they visited.

The customers who had not left in favor of the competition were shocked to see that they were being punished for sticking with my clients. They began grumbling, then eventually they stopped going. So instead of having a glass half full of customers, they had a glass pretty much devoid of any customers. I am amazed that they are still open, despite the poor income and the damage to their reputation. Sure, the cut in costs had a lot to do with them staying open… but it is also part of the reason they lost so many customers.

In business, keeping expenses down is smart. But cutting expenses at the expense of your treatment of your customers is like going to the hospital for excessive bleeding, then shooting the medical staff trying to help get a transfusion into you. You hurt yourself and you make yourself look bad.

I had to fire this client, because they were ignoring advice and using kneejerk tactics to respond to conditions in the marketplace. They saw it as another cut in expenses.

Scarcity mindset is dangerous. It makes you believe that only a finite set of customers exist in any market, and that any competition is going to take business away from you in direct proportion to the increase in their business. If this were the case, whenever someone bought a case of Coca Cola, Pepsico would be howling. The fact that both of these companies are still in business proves that the market can expand. Just because someone never drank a Coke in their lives, does not mean they might not try a Pepsi – and vice versa. When someone chooses a beverage other than their product, these companies go out and find another new customer from the universal set of humans. Neither of these companies ever expects to get the entire human race to drink their product, but as long as they are continually adding one new drinker to their customer list, they are growing.

If Pepsi decided to cut their advertising, buy cheaper ingredients and shortcut their production processes in order to compensate for someone choosing to drink a Coke, they would start losing their current customers. Scarcity mindset is not the right way to look at business. If your share of the pie is not big enough, expand the size of the pie!
