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!

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.

Have you Ever Had a Friend Hit You With the “Dude,  We need to talk about that blog”

Or maybe for you, it was “that business” or that “girlfriend” Anyways, when we hear that question, we usually know what is coming…No, not a fight!

Nope

I thought I knew what was coming from this friend that will remain nameless (JOE P)..He says “I saw one of your videos, and dude, You Sound Like a Cult Leader”..

The Green Kool Aid
Drink the Kool Aid

I cried, I was laughing so hard. Was my public speaking that bad?

I realized that if a friend that knows me, thinks I sound like a goofball, imagine what others might think! Not that I really care, but the point is NOT to sound like a cult leader. I realized it was time to get to the point. I needed to improve my public speaking and have a quick point or 2 to my videos. And why not read a book that I had already bought! Public Speaking Magic. Nice, short 100 page book. So take out a pen and paper to take notes. You won’t want to miss this part. Public Speaking 101

1) Ask a Question, I did this! 2) Tell a story( I did this too!) 3) Do an exercise.(BOOM!) These 3 methods, especially when used together are GUARANTEED TO WORK!
