Self-Talk (Part 3 of 4)

 

Continuation:

 

Now create empowering phrases you say to yourself each day. Say your Self-Talk each morning and during the day (and whenever you need to) and before you go to bed each night.

If all you do is fill you mind with empowering words and phrases you’ll attract everything you want in life. You’re still going to have to work for things, but you’ll be working smart not hard.

To get you kick started here is some of my daily Self-Talk:

“Helping people achieve their goals and dreams using no agenda and expect nothing in return. I will achieve all my goals and dreams”. This one was inspired from Zig Ziglar.

“I will not get involved in other people’s drama and I refuse to allow negativity into my life” Wow how does that set up my day compared to other people?

“Being truthful each day is the best gift I can give myself and others”. I think the boy scouts are onto something.

Here is what my team says about our business:

“We are building the largest most profitable, highest retention organization ever built in the history of network marketing easily and consistently through education and teamwork” Enough said on that one.

Final thoughts

Before I end this there is one more thing. Words create pictures in our mind. People with great memories use pictures to remember things.

You’ve heard of athletes using visualization. A runner sees himself/herself getting out of the blocks perfectly, sees themselves straightening up and getting into full stride perfectly, they see themselves crossing the finish line first and powerfully.

My success in life and in network marketing is largely due to my Self-Talk and visualization (yes and hard work). Do you think anyone becomes successful if they are always saying, “I’ll never achieve anything”, “It’s too hard”?

The difference between successful people and non-successful people is, successful people do what other people won’t do.

Time User Or Time Waster? (Part 1 of 2)

48 hours a day

If you are like me, you’ve often wishes there were 48 hours in a day instead of just 24. There never seems to be enough time to get everything done that you want. Since we just have about 16 hours a day not counting sleep time, it’s important how we use the time we have.

On the average, people waste about 2 hours a day. This is mainly from poor planning. If a person is unorganized, they waste time trying to find things, they miss appointments, they only do one thing at a time when they could be doing two.

Work smart

Good time management is a major building block to success. Oftentimes, it’s not how much time we spend working but how efficiently we do the work. The key to successful time management is careful planning and setting priorities.

Plan your day, your week, and your month in advance. Know when things need to be done. A great way to “buy time” is to multi-task. Do more than one thing at a time. There are many things that do not require concentrated mental effort. It is possible to do things simultaneously.

 

“Failing to plan is planning to fail,”

– unknown

Simultaneously

Even though I am a big pro basketball fan, I can’t justify sitting down and spending three hours watching a game. I have to be doing other things while I do it. Thank goodness for instant replay! I find it a good time to spend icing injuries or some other busy work.

It is also possible to record the games and watch them while exercising. I exercise about 30 minutes a day so during the basketball season I can watch a game during the week without wasting any time doing it.

When you run errands try to do as many as you can on one trip. If you are self-employed, you can combine personal errands that are on the way to a business errand and have the mileage written off as a business expense.
