With Life Often “Lifeing” Us, it’s often difficult to keep a positive energy about us.

Often times in the past, it was near impossible for me. When you have a negative energy or mind set, it’s often hard to take action. If you’re looking to be successful,  you need to know what it takes to give you a positive energy.

One thing I’ve done to create a positive energy for myself, is re-programming.

Everything you do in life, every experience you experience, whether you remember these experiences today or not, creates “files” that are stored in your brain. In your subconscious. These files affect everything you do. Many of these files are old files, they are outdated and are no longer needed. Most of us don’t know how to just “delete” or “overwrite” these files. We can accomplish this via reading and personal development. One even better method is a program I graduated from, called The Landmark Forum. It was here that I was able to rid myself of the old, outdated files that were stored in my subconscious and prevented me from creating and adding new files. At Landmark I was able to start fresh with a new hard drive.

Another habit I’ve added to my daily schedule to keep positive energy is, repeating affirmations.

I have 11 affirmations that I repeat to myself at least twice a day. Usually more. I saved these affirmations in Evernote. I then took a screen shot of my screen and saved this image as my lock screen on my phone. Thus, every time I look at my phone, I see my affirmations. I will share a few of mine;

  1. Bob Quintana(My mentor in Green Energy), not only am I going to challenge you at the post, but I will beat you at the grandstand.
  2. I am a million dollar earner
  3. I am the possibility of Freedom
  4. I am the possibility of Courage
  5. I am the possibility of Compassion

I have more, but all of these should be personal to each individual. Another way I’m using these affirmations, is at part of my vision, that I sit quietly for 10 minutes every morning and night, to think about and visualize myself in. Living life daily, from my vision

A third habit for positive energy is Deep Sleep Programming. I’ve heard others speak of it and I’ve often wondered about it. I was interested to see how this could assist with positive energy.

Then I heard April Marie Tucker talk about this, on one of the MLSP Morning Wake UP Calls. These calls are amazing, by the way. These calls are at 10 AM Central M-F. 712.432.3431. Pin 399808#.

Anyways, April talked about Deep Sleep Programming (Click Here for my saved YouTube play list) and I implemented this immediately. Your brain and subconscious is receptive, even while sleeping! This means we all have 6-8 hours of potential learning and affirmations that we could be using. This is another great way to keep positive energy.

Are you always quick to chalk it up as “bad luck” But what are you doing to create “good luck”? “Think and Grow Rich” has what you need!

www.coopsgreenteam.com

The book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill is the success Bible! This is the place to start when searching for success. In this book Napoleon Hill details 30 Major Causes of Failure… Here we go.

30 Major Causes of Failure. These are factors that will cause us to fail, IF WE DO NOT REDIRECT our course or path.
By Napoleon Hill
1. Unfavorable hereditary background-deficiency in brain-power
2. Lack of a well-defined purpose in life- no central purpose or definite goal
3. Lack of ambition to aim above mediocrity-not willing to pay the price
4. Insufficient education-can be overcome with relative ease
5. Lack of self-discipline-comes through self-control. Self-mastery is the hardest job you
will ever tackle. This is why you NEED Think and Grow Rich
6. Ill health. overeating, wrong habits of thought, or negative thinking. wrong use of sex,
lack of proper physical exercise, improper breathing.
7. Unfavorable environmental influences during childhood-”As the twig is bent, so
shall the tree grow”
8. Procrastination-Procrastination is one of the most common causes of failure.
Procrastination stands within the shadow of every human being, waiting its opportunity to spoil
your chances of success. Most of us go through life as failures because we are waiting for “the
time to be right” to start doing something worthwile. DO NOT WAIT. This time will never be “just
right”. Start where you stand, work with whatever tools you have at your command, and you will
acquire better tools as you go along.
9. Lack of persistence-People are prone to give up at first sign of defeat. Failure cannot
cope with persistence
10.. Negative personality- Success comes through the application of power, and power is
attained through cooperative efforts of other people. A negative personality will not induce
cooperation
11. Lack of control of sexual urges.
12. Uncontrolled desire for “something for nothing”- gambling instinct
13. Lack of a well-defined power of decision-Those who succeed reach decisions
promptly and change them very slowly. Those who fail reach decisions slowly and change them
frequently, and quickly.
14. One or more of the basic six fears-fear of poverty, criticism, ill health, loss of love, old
age, and death.
15. Wrong selection of a mate in marriage-Most common cause of failure. Unless this
relationship is harmonious, failure is likely to follow.
16. Overcaution- Undercaution is just as bad. Both extremes are to be guarded against
17. Wrong selection of associates in business- We emulate those with whom we
associate most closely. Pick an employer who is worth emulating
18. Superstition and Prejudice- Successful people keep open minds and are afraid of
nothing. They THINK & GROW RICH
19. Wrong selection of a vocation- You cannot have outstanding success in work you do
not like.
20. Lack of concentration of effort- The jack-of-all-trades seldom is good at any.
21. The habit of indiscriminate spending- speaks for itself
22. Lack of enthusiasm- Enthusiasm is contagious and the person who has it(under
control) is generally welcome in any group of people
23. Intolerance- The person with a closed mind on any subject seldom gets ahead.
24. Intemperance- Most damaging are overeating,alcohol, drugs, and sexual activities.
Overindulgence in any of these activities can be fatal to success.
25. Inability to cooperate with others- This is a fault that no well-informed
business-person or leader will tolerate
26. Possession of power that was not acquired through self-effort-
27. Intentional dishonesty- Sooner or later your deeds will catch up with you, and you will
pay by loss of reputation and perhaps loss of liberty.
28. Egotism and vanity- These qualities serve as red lights that warn others to keep away
29. Guessing instead of thinking – Most people are too indifferent or lazy to acquire facts
with which to think accurately.
30. Lack of capital – You must have a sufficient reserve of capital to absorb the shock of
your mistakes and to carry you over until you have established a reputation,
It will be helpful if you get someone who know you well to go over this list with you and help to
analyze yourself by each of these causes of failure. Most people cannot see themselves as
others see them. You may be one who cannot. All of these “reasons” can be overcome by

YOU TAKING ACTION.

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!

“I’m Trying, but the results just aren’t there. What am I doing wrong?”

That’s a question I often hear. It’s often an easy one, but not a simple one. Many of our “projects” don’t take off for a variety of reasons. On a conference call today, Aron Parker covered this topic. This info is applicable to ALL businesses, relationships, projects, ETC….They ALL need results

Good Intentions is the FIRST Step, but not the ONLY step

Many of us think, because we mean well, that should be “Good Enough”. Well, I hate to break it to you, this isn’t “Good Enough”. Your business is not a lottery that you throw your $ in and wait and hope you are the winner! The guts of the call were the following

  • You MUST make a shift to take DAILY SPECIFIC ACTIONS. Otherwise, YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT!
    • NOT INTENTIONS, BUT ACTIONS!
    • I recommend planning these actions the day before
  • Consistency. You must take massive daily action, every day!
  • Language is important. Substitute the terms “Some Day, hopefully, etc..” with “Action, purpose, now, discipline, habits”
  • You must move from Good Intentions to Good Actions

Intention + Action= Results!!

Looking to Transform your life and have more Freedom?

I can help!

What does freedom mean to you? It can mean many different things to different people. For many years I thought freedom was being a small business owner. Hah! That’s a great story we business owner’s tell ourselves. Most small business owners are slaves to their companies. They work 80 hours a week so they can take home a 40 hour paycheck(IF LUCKY) and count on the big payday at the end….that rarely comes.

I always was drawn to freedom. I’ve always hated being told what to do(right mom and dad?) I’ve always loved the freedom motorcycles brought me. I had many years of watching my dad slave over his asphalt paving company, thinking he was free. I thought that was what I wanted also. Then I graduated and joined my father in business and I had the “freedom” I was searching for. Ulcers, employee problems, union problems, banking problems, problems, problems, problems. All I did was put out fires. I should have been a firefighter! After 15 years of this,My mentor, Bob Quintana, recommended a personal and professional development program called Landmark. In  Landmark I discovered what freedom meant to me and I’ve been able to transform my life.

  • financial freedom
  • Free from self limiting beliefs
  • Free from all past experiences
  • Free to live where I want
  • Free to work where I want.
  • Free from concern of what other’s may think or say
  • Freedom to spend time with my boys!!

Personal Development

Freedom means many different things to many different people at many different levels. When you are free from the past, you have a clearing in which you can create something new. Without being free from the past, you will always repeat the past. The past predicts your future. It takes a transformation to truly put this into play. I’m in search of the ultimate freedom. Freedom from the system. Freedom to choose 100% based on my principles and plan. Freedom to create new, every day.

Related to freedom is stress. I am a serious person and stress had always been a problem for me. In  Landmark I learned that stress comes from the voices in my head, based off the fears of what may or may not happen. I knew I had to make a career path change at some point, but the fear of selling the company and thinking others would think I was a quitter, prevented this from happening. Completely useless thinking! Learning this changed my life. Now, I’m completely stress free and loving life. I am the possibility of freedom.

“Until the pain of remaining the same outweighs the pain of change, nothing will change” We can use Personal Development along with taking action to make that change!

Just heard Marty Hale repeat that statement on our company, weekly power call. How true it is. Take action! Actions lead to results. New actions lead to new results. Personal development will help you get new results

Many people live according to how they “feel”. I think this is a new phenomena in our culture. Back in hunting and gathering times, I’m sure often, the hunters or gatherers didn’t “feel” like hunting. But they had to. They didn’t choose to take a nap or play a video game, instead of hunting!

personal development

If you live your life according to how you feel, it is a sure way to avoid success, in anything.

Successful people just don’t live their lives according to how they feel. They don’t usually feel like studying personal development, but they do it!  I don’t feel like sitting here right now, typing this blog. I sure as hell didn’t feel like leaving my comfort zone to record this video that I shared with thousands of people. I’m putting myself out there to be judged and criticized. But, I took action anyways, because I knew, that to take my business to the ultimate level, I needed to continue to take the actions that the rockstars(Mark JRay Higdon, Eric Worre, Matt Morris, Bob Quintana, Joe Ochiogrosso) of the business take. I am leaving no stones uturned in my search for success at the highest levels. This is why I study the successful people. That’s why I have reached out to and met Ray Higdon and Joe Ochiogrosso(I’m on his team). I get the pleasure to work with Bob Quintana!(how many people do you KNOW that make 6 digits a MONTH) And I will one day get to know Mark, Eric and Matt also. All of these people take action according to what they know they SHOULD do.(according to their principles and their plan)

This morning I listened to one recorded conference call and 1 live call. On my live call(through my MLSP group) the topic happened to be taking action.

Some interesting info. What are the questions that stop people from taking action? What is going through their heads?

  • How do I?
  • What if?
  • If I ___ will I be able to ___?
  • How long will ___take?

Those are the thoughts that freeze people from taking that initial step.  Solution.. FIGURE IT OUT

Take action and get the answer. Replace expectations with appreciation(of what you’re doing, what you’re learning, what you’re apart of!)

There’s also a simple 3 step action formula you can follow.

  1. Action leads to results
  2. Results give us answers
  3. Answers direct us to the next action

IF you don’t get the result you desire, CHANGE THE ACTION

SIMPLE!!!

I am Phil Cooper,Father & Husband, entrepreneur and adventure seeker. I’m on a mission to bring freedom to those in search of it. I’m sharing my journey with you on my road of Personal Development.

Today my blog will have a theme of personal accountability. This is a blog that will touch on
  • Personal Development
  • Leadership
  • Business and team building
  • Network marketing skills
My father started an asphalt paving company slightly before I was born, in 1974. I was always around the business and working from a young age. My father and mother both taught me much about integrity, work ethic and accountability. He was also, unconsciously teaching me entrepreneurship. As a family, we always discussed business ideas and what was possible! From a young age, my parents taught me Personal Development. I was taught I could do anything I wanted!
I attended Northern Illinois University and received a degree in Business Management, with an emphasis on Entrepreneurship and small business administration. While in college I continued to operate my DJ business that I had started in High School. I worked for fraternities, and for a couple of bars.  I graduated in 1999. My first summer out of college, my father had a massive heart attack. My parents strongly encouraged me to leave the industry. Due to the business and market changing on us, they wanted to sell the company and have me find employment elsewhere. But, I’m stubborn and I thought people would look at me as a quitter. So I took over day to day operations.  I went from being in my 1st year of working full time, to running a multi-million dollar asphalt paving company in the middle of being extorted by local construction unions. I worked as hard on myself through personal development as I did on my business.
I signed up with the local unions and I declared I’d be the industry leader in commercial asphalt paving. The company grew from 2 million to 7 million with me at the helm. I was making great money for my age, but I wasn’t happy. Then 2008 hit us. We were devastated by the recession. We lost close to 2 million dollars. We had to auction off most of our equipment and downsize, quickly! I lost every dollar I had to my name. I was depressed and I even temporarily abandoned personal development. This led me to looking for something else, something recession proof. My good friend and super entrepreneur, Mark Bezik shared with me a green energy company. I was in love with MLM and energy!
After 2 years, I had proven to myself that I could work this brand new industry, network marketing, and do this part time! I also had the belief in my MLM company, so I decided to burn my bridge and sell my asphalt company, after attending the Landmark Forum(more to come on that in later blogs). There was no going back now. I was taking back control of my life! I was back to working on Personal Development, and with mentor’s like Bob Quintana, Bob Florentine and Jason Wolkow, I knew the only thing stopping me was myself!
The theme of today’s blog is personal accountability and personal development.
You may have others that are holding you back(at least in your mind) from growing your home based business,  holding you back from freedom, from enjoyment. This may be spouses, bosses, friends, family, children, etc. They aren’t holding you back. You are holding yourself back with self limiting beliefs, taught to you from the voices in your head. Don’t allow this. Take personal responsibility. Take control of your life!
Today we are holding a kickoff call for my 90 day business blitz. I’ve allowed my MLM company growing pains, personal issues, and lack of time to be excuses for me. Today, they will no longer be excuses. It’s time to take back control of my life, I’m refusing to let others be excuses for me.
I am the possibility of freedom, courage and compassion. I love my life and I live it powerfully.
Everyone has the ability to create the life they want and live it powerfully. You just need to shift your paradigm.
Starting now, I’m going to live my life like the rockstar that I know that I am.

To do this, I’m doing the following actions on a daily basis; reading 10 pages of a good book per day, reading 10 pages of a landmark based article or book per day, holding daily accountability calls for my team, meditate for at least 5 minutes, and repeat my affirmations in the morning and evening(at a minimum!) This will help me maximize Personal Development.

 

 I will also be posting blog entries 3-5 times per week
The impact of this would seem stressful to many, considering I have a full time job and 3 young boys that I spend lots of time with and coach in sports. But stress is ” made up, based off of the fears of what may happen or not happen” coming from the voices in your head. Thanks to Landmark, I no longer have those voices. I no longer have any self limiting beliefs. I am taking full responsibility for the growth(or lack of growth) of my business.
