Do you Have a Development Plan for 2016?

IF you don’t have a road map or development plan to create a major breakout in 2016? It’s time to create one.

Here’s a recap of a recent conference call with Bob Quintana

The First question to ask yourself.  What’s your biggest Triumph that you’d like to accomplish in 2016? For me, it’s a 6 digit year from my part time, home business. This will allow me to have DUAL 6-digit incomes. When the economy crashed, it wiped out all of my savings and investments. Thus, I’m still rebuilding and 2 incomes will help GREATLY!

The Second question to ask yourself. Are you Committed to doing this? I’m committed to making this happen and I’ve created a very specific day/week/month plan and review to make this happen! Third question to ask yourself. What Personal Development are you committed to doing, to make this happen? I’m committed to continue learning skills that I need to take my business to the top! I’m going to register for another Landmark program The 4th and final question.  Where do you rank in your Tri Lateral Leadership ranking? This is a leadership score developed by Orrin Woodward and discussed in “Launching a Leadership Revolution”. This is my personal favorite leadership book. I’m currently re-reading it for my 4th time.Development Plan

  • Character. How’s your Integrity? Humility? Dependability?
  • Tasks. How effective are you? Do you accomplish tasks on time?
  • Relationships. How do you relate to others?

You should rank yourself 1-10 in all of those categories. Then multiply all 3 numbers and a perfect score would 1000. This is where Orrin Woodward lives. To recap, I’ve now provided you 4 very important questions to assist you in creating a development plan to create a BREAKOUT 2016!

How often do you reach your goals? If you’re like me, probably not often! So, I’ve often wondered, “How do I perform effective goal setting?”

Well, lucky for you and I, Ray Higdon, just wrapped up a webinar covering goal setting. I’m going to share my takeaways with you!

Annual goals are OK, IF there’s a series of smaller goals leading to the larger goal. Thus, when goal setting, if you have annual goal of adding 100 new people to your business, you should break that down into quarterly and monthly goals. If your baseline is you successfully recruit 20% of the people you present to, into your business.

  • Then you would need to present to 500 people for the year.
  • Quarterly= 125 presentations
  • Monthly = 42 presentations
  • Weekly = 11 presentations

This is the amount of presentations you’d need to make to recruit 100 people into your business. It’s much more effective breaking your goal down into manageable chunks. If you don’t do that, it’s easy to get discouraged. Also, when you don’t reach your goals, you break your word to yourself. This means you are now out of integrity to yourself. You need to keep your word to yourself to keep high self esteem and so you believe you deserve the rewards. Thus, many smaller goals leads to many smaller rewards and celebration and keeps self esteem high. For me, this is the game changer!

A couple more take away’s from Ray’s webinar

  • If you want to double your income, triple your actions!
  • Write your daily goals down on a note card and keep this note card with you
  • CELEBRATE ALL successes!
  • Your excitement grows as you grow
  • Add 1 MAJOR skill per year. Example, this year I’m adding internet marketing. I’m also adding Webinars. Yes, I’m adding 2 Major skills. I will be holding webinars monthly(for now, more often in the future)

When I meet and interview a potential new business partner, I often hear the same excuses on why someone won’t be successful in business.With a little Life Coaching you can get past these “reasons”

To new Entrepreneurs, this can sometimes get frustrating. I used to be one of those frustrated Entrepreneurs. Fifteen years later, I’ve been around for awhile and worked on myself, big time! I’ve had some Life Coaching from mentors and personal development programs. Now, I see these excuses as self limiting belief, that only exist in someone else’s world. The first step is to identify the self limiting belief. The top 5 I hear are:

  1. I’m not a salesperson. I love this one. Especially when, you don’t need to be a salesperson. But, unfortunately, some people have that mental block and can’t get past it. First off, sales is about relationships. All you need to do is build and grow the relationships. If you focus on that, you will be fine. Provide value and the marketplace will work with you. In my business opportunity, the only sale, is selling the appointment. After you have made the appointment, the tools and your sponsor(up line), do the rest of the work. It really is as simple as that.
  2. I can’t change who I am. As Jim Rohn saysIf you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.” This means, you CAN change. You just need to want to change. Another saying is “There is no can or can’t, only will or won’t.” People need to wipe the word “can’t” from their vocabulary. Instead use the word “won’t”. My wife often says “I can’t wake up early” Wrong, you can, you just choose not to.(I’m not afraid to put this in my blog, because my wife won’t read this anyways, but that’s for another post on) If you want change, you just need to change your habits. It really is that simple. IF you want to learn a new trade or get in shape, but are having a difficult time, finding the time, get up earlier! Create that habit. Or block off a certain hour in your calendar and set a reminder in your phone, for every day at that time to study or workout, or whatever it is, that you WANT to do. As my parent’s always told me growing up “You can do anything you want to do” Unfortunately, I had a difficult time being an NFL Linebacker at 5’6″ running a 5.0 40 yard dash. So I’m hear speaking to you instead. If you’re looking to create some positive habits and don’t know where to start, some Life Coaching is a good place to start. Seek out a mentor to help with that.
  3. “I don’t know anybody” Simple solution for this self-limiting belief also. Meet people! Talk to people! Join a business networking group. Speak to your neighbors, your server, your barber, the person sitting next to you at Starbucks. Go to “meetup.com” Find a group that fits. There are thousands! Also, there’s the internet. On Facebook there are groups for anything you can think of. And many of them! You just need to break out of your comfort zone.
  4. I don’t have enough time. We all only have 24 hours in a day. And we are ALL using all 24 hours. None of us have “spare” time. We all use our time based on our priorities. Some of us feel we need 4 hours of TV or more, some feel 2 hours, some feel 1 hour, some of us don’t watch tv at all! (Maybe a Bears game here or there…) I promise, if you believe you don’t have enough time to take on a new opportunity, let me spend some time with you. I will help you find some time. We all have areas of our life that we could be more efficient at. Everybody has the same amount of time in the day. If you’re someone who wishes you had more time (like 99 percent of the world), what you’re really asking for is a better way to manage your priorities so you can optimize the time you already have. If you’d like help, email me and I will help! I’ve added Life Coaching to my list of things that I’m willing to help with.
  5. My family or job needs me. IF this is true, you need to improve your leadership ability. As Lau Tzu, the ancient philosopher once said, “A leader is best when people barely know he exists. Of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say, ‘we did this ourselves.’” Once again, with a little Life Coaching, you can learn to be a more effective leader.

If you’ve attempted these things and you’re still struggling, I recommend Landmark. Landmark can help you eliminate ALL self-limiting beliefs. Landmark will allow you to do some Life Coaching for yourself! It has worked for me.

Ever wonder what it takes to have a break out year? To take life to another level? Thanks to the continuing mentorship from many mentors of mine, I have a clear path to this.

 

I recently listened to a morning wake up call and had the privilege of listening to Justice Eagan. He shared his 7 steps with me to have a break out year in 2016

  1. 1st step to all change. Take responsibility for your life.The Compound effect by Darren hardy. Your life is a product of your choices. Own this.You must own this to create change. Take control of your life. Don’t live in the past. Let go of the past. Live into your vision of the future. Make this your present. This is changing your paradigm
  2. You must change your core beliefs. Believe you can do it. You are capable of it. You deserve it. We are all capable of more than we give ourselves credit for. You must take back and own your power. Set up morning and evening positive affirmations. Speak positive things and positive expectations into your life.
  3. Monitor your associations. Don’t let negative people spend their time with you. Own the energy in your world. Spend time with Doers, Achievers, Dreamers. People with integrity. People that support you.  You can’t afford to spend time with anyone else
  4. Reverse engineer Your goals. It’s wild. Those that have what others want, will tell others how to get it or make it happen, and they don’t listen. Must write goals down. Must break them down to manageable chunks. Annual, monthly,  weekly, daily. If only annual, procrastination sets in easily
  5. Create new patterns in your life. Celebrate the step to your growth.  You must have that to create new habits. This is a life change!!! not a new years resolution. You’re creating a new habit of continuous learning.  This led to many new habits. Must have a core desire to improve. Too many people look for max results with minimum change
  6. Invest in yourself constantly.  You will get the best return investing in yourself. Increase your value. 
  7. Do what you already know to do!! Serve the marketplace. Uncover, agitate and offer solutions for the marketplace. Out serve your peers. Like Eric and RayAnybody and everybody can do it, if they want to do it.

Without great mentorship directly from wonderful people like Bob Quintana, Bob Florentine, Jason Wolkow, Lexa Leifer, Ray Hidon, and many of the others I’ve never “met” but I know from the audio cds, podcasts or conference calls I’ve listened to MANY times.

Have you ever had the chance to speak to someone you admire or want to work with and you had a chance to speak up, but you froze? Or how about, living your life to a lower standard and knowing what you need to do, but not doing it..being stuck in a rut that you can’t get out of.

Many of us have been in a situation like this. Be it, a top business prospect, a potential customer, or a person you’re attracted to and you’d like to ask them on a date. All of us have been there. Most of us have frozen and not been able to speak what you want to speak, if you even speak at all.

If you’re an entrepreneur, these prospects go on your “Chicken Shit list” Attack this list if you’re looking for a positive change in your life.

Or maybe you’re in a dead end relationship or job, maybe a loved one is an addict or alcoholic. Many of us are afraid to speak up or do anything about what’s bothering us.

Does any of this apply to you? Do you have a chicken shit list? Want to know the key to getting rid of this list or JOB? Or the key to making positive change in your life? Simple one word answer, Courage.  Courage is taking action in the face of fear. Pretty profound, right? Yes, so simple, it makes you almost feel stupid when you think of it. 

Courage is the key to unlocking you’re freedom. Courage to let the past go. Courage to tackle new opportunity. Courage to speak up at work. Courage to speak up to a friend or loved one. Courage to take ACTION.

Want to know the key to courage? ACTION. Yes, once again, action is the key! By taking action, you start the ball rolling, creating some momentum, which leads to more action, which leads to more action, and so on… When you take action, you also feel better and you will now feel like taking the actions you need to take. (Even though, you should not live according to how you feel) So if you’re looking for a positive change in your life, courage is the key to taking action.

In Landmark, the forum leader used a tennis analogy. Imagine watching a tennis match. The ball goes back and forth, over and over. You watch this, but can not affect what is going on. Now, jump in the game. Take action, participate in the game, even get to the point where you dictate the game. This is life. Life happens for you, not to you(Thanks for sharing Brian Fanale!). Life is your tennis court. It’s up to you to create the action, so you quit looking for a positive change in your life and start BEING positive change in your life!

 

 

I recently met with the a business mentor of mine. He’s the president of  a large company. (200+million in annual revenue, maybe more?).

We have an annual meeting to catch up with each other. I’ve known my friend, Gary, for 20 years. He’s always been someone that I could share ideas with and talk business with. He’s one of the most successful people I know. So I was excited to meet with him and I planned on showing him my green energy business presentation. We spent most of our time catching up and sharing stories, till we were almost done, I almost blew it! But, I did not, even though I was not sure what he’d think. I knew I had something good to share with him. I had courage and asked if I could share it with him. He said “Yes, of course”. And he liked it! I’m sure many additional opportunities will arise out of me taking action in the moment. As I’ve stated before and I took this from Landmark, I am the possibility of Freedom, I am the possibility of Courage, and I am the possibility of Compassion.

I often used to wonder, “What does it take to build a successful network marketing business?” Thanks to Bob Quintana for sharing his 4 Pillars to being a Successful Entrepreneur with me

Many people have different thoughts on what it takes to be a successful Entrepreneur.  I used to think, all I needed was positive energy and drive. Napoleon Hill points out his reasons for failure,along with many things needed for success.

One winter day in 2013, I had the pleasure to have an introduction to a new business mentor. Entrepreneur, Bob Quintana.

It was on this call that Bob shared his 4 Pillars to being a successful Entrepreneur with me. These pillars of success are;

  1. Duplication- We must have a business and a system that we are able to duplicate. Ever hear of McDonald’s, Starbuck’s, or Subway? All of these businesses are very successful but also have a model that they are able to duplicate, over and over and over. If you’re doing something in your business, that you can’t teach others to duplicate, you’re doing it wrong!
  2. Fast Start Training- We must be able to get new employees, associates or affiliates, started quickly. There should be a training model and system to get new people up and running FAST. When people are engaged and making $, they are likely to stick with a job or new business, longer
  3. Promotion- Promotion is a HUGE part of network marketing, especially, but also in business. If you don’t promote your business or event, nobody will know about it. When it comes to promoting events, knowing how to properly promote, is the most important thing about events.
  4. Taprooting- This is finding the newest person in your organization, that has potential to be a “player” and spending time mentoring this individual. This is important in traditional business as well as network marketing, if you want your business to grow and Duplicate!

If you allow burnout and stress to run its course, it will leave you like the pictured car.

A shell of a person. Just a body walking through life trying to survive. This is NO WAY TO LIVE!!! Life does not need to be like that! Burnout leads to lack of creativity, poor performance and disengagement. Burnout and stress also affect you physically and can cause the following symptoms; fatigue, lack of sleep,sickness, depression, anxiety, and other physical ailments. Burnout has ruined many careers. Stress has even more negative side effects wreaks havoc on your health.

You can manage and control stress!

You must remember, stress is FAKE! 100% made up from the voices in your head. Telling you stories about what may or may not happen. Throw the voices in a closet and slam the door! Yes! It really is that simple(with proper training)

How do I manage this?

It’s important to regenerate your energy. Without this, you are likely going to flame out. There are 3 steps to regeneration. These are

  1. Exercising some mind control. Think of blissful things. Or think of a time when you were fulfilled
  2. Remember… Your J.O.B does NOT define you! You are MUCH more than your job. You MUST live a balanced life with the following elements.
    1. Career
    2. Family
    3. Financial
    4. Physical health
    5. Learning and personal development
    6. Recreation
    7. Social
    8. Spiritual

If you’re missing something from that list, you’re doing it WRONG. Add that list to your agenda and make some time in your calendar to live a balanced life.

3. Become accountable for your own life!! When I was running my asphalt paving company. I allowed stress to eat me alive. I worried about employees, the economy, unions, etc… All things I can’t control. I took back control of my life by selling my problems to someone else 😉

I am personally accountable for my own life and everything that happens in it. This has helped eliminate the stress from my life.

There area a few other things I have done to eliminate stress and burn out from my life that I recommend for EVERYONE!

  1. Grow!! Always be learning. Read. Take courses. When you are growing, you are focused on the new stuff and not on the stress
  2. Meditation. Meditate at least 10 minutes every day. This is mind control. The ultimate level of personal development and taking control of yourself and your life,  is controlling your own mind. Set a timer for 10 minutes and close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. Every time you have a though, pluck the though from your mind like its a weed. It’s VERY tough to do this for 10 minutes. But your brain needs this! You must rest your brain and clear your mind, so new thoughts and Ideas can have room to grow
  3. Take a personal development course. I recommend Landmark. You can check out a short 10 minute video Here. Landmark was LIFE CHANGING for me and other’s I’ve shared Landmark with. There are MANY  ways this program helped me and enhanced my life. Landmark is for everyone, no matter where in your life or career you are at.
  4. I subscribe to and recommend, a 4 day weekend every 8 weeks. You need to recharge your batteries and remind yourself why you work hard. I’ve had many arguments with my dad on this, but for me, this step is 100% necessary, to avoid burn out
  5. Daily physical activity. Even if its only 15 minutes of sit ups, push ups and treadmill. This is VERY important. You only get 1 body and if you don’t maintain it, you will wear it out. Then you are out of business!

Often times, people wonder what leadership qualities are preferable.

Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady wrote a book called “Launching a Leadership Revolution” . This book helps us determine what a leader is and more importantly, how to grow and train more leaders!(And MINI Me’s if you’re a business owner) Leadership

Ultimately, leadership is influence. To achieve different levels of leadership, we must understand them first.

There are 5 Levels of Leadership.

These levels are

  1. Learning- Leaders must always be learning and growing
  2. Performing. Leaders must not lack in the performance category. They must get results!
  3. Leading.. Leaders must be able to lead others. These followers must also trust the leader
  4. Developing other leaders
  5. Leaders must be able to develop leaders who develop other leaders

Bob Q training Notes courtesy of Bob Quintana Leadership training

Leaders must also posses 3 Foundational Leadership Qualities( The 3cs)

  1. Character
  2. Commitment
  3. Coachablitiy

Without the 3 Cs, you will not be a leader at any level. Orrin Woodward does a phenomenal job of covering the core leader qualities in this book and this is a MUST READ for any want to be leader(or current leader). He’s also an amazing speaker and I recommend seeing him in person. I also recommend another book from Orrin  titled “Resolved, 13 Resolution for LifeAnother great book If you found value here, please like, share, comment and TWEET!!!
