Half of Enjoying Success in this
Business is "Knowing What To Do"
I have been training so many people on the
RWB process over the past three years, and a lot of you over the
last few weeks during the special I offered. In doing so, I
also get to learn a lot from you. One question I
would always ask myself is this; Why do some people do
very well in this business and others do not? The answer was always
the same for those who were doing well. They were shown
what to do and
they believed they could.
Let me repeat that one again. "They
were shown what to do and
they believed they
Now this may not sound like anything
new or something that could make a difference, but boy does it!
Think about it for a minute. No matter what process a
person decides to use, it is that person's belief system that makes
the difference for them every time. If this was not
true, then everyone would already be a Master Coordinator in
Shaklee many years ago when the company first started to teach them
what to do. Just think, if this did happen, today there would be
nobody left to sponsor. :0
However, there are tons of people who
never even heard of Shaklee and even more who don't really
understand what it has to offer and how it works. So the world is
wide open to the few who truly do understand these two things
that everyone must have to be successful in this industry. So
let's look at both of them right now.
The First Thing is to "Know
What to Do".
I repaired cars for a living many
years ago. In order for me to earn a good income to support my
family doing that, I first had to be shown what to do. Once I was
shown what to do, and I did it, I continued to get really good over
the 16 years that I was in that field. I made some mistakes and
learned even more because of them. But because I never gave
up, I was paid top dollor for my experience.
This is true in Shaklee as well.
If you want to build a successful business you need to be shown what
to do. So having a process to follow and to teach others in
this business is a very important thing to have. You can't build a
network marketing business without it. You can sell products without
one, and if you are very good at sales you could sell a lot of
products. But for the rest of us who don't like to sell, which
is 86% of the population, but do want to earn a full time income in
this industry, there is a much better way.
When you really understand the concept
of a true Network Marketing business, it makes all the difference in
the world and takes the pressure off of you. Only then does the
fun really begin!
You cannot expect anyone else to
follow you if you don't know where you are going, right?
After all, this is a leadership business so you need to lead others
to reach their core desires in life if you want to reach yours. If
you ever expect to make this a full time income for your family, if
that is what you want, than you will need to help a lot of other
people by leading them through a simple process.
So having a simple process that others
can do that explains what Shaklee offers and exactly how to get
there step-by-step is very important. However, this is
only one thing you need to have for success in this
The Other Half of Success
in this Business is "Believing You Can"
So let's say you have a process that
is simple to follow and you are using it. You know what to
do, what to say, what to teach and so forth. Well, if you are doing
this everyday, why are you not where you want to be in your
business? It all comes down to your
The Second Thing You Need is
to "Believe You Can.
There are only a few people in this world who are willing to
work on their thoughts everyday and begin to change it to what it
needs to be focused on. Steve said that he found that
this group of people is very very small. In fact, he said it is
likely to be less than 5% of the total population! Only 5%? Yes,
that's true and maybe it is because of all the negative thoughts we
get from the world we live in. Turn the news on and see if you don't
This kind of daily conditioning leads
many people to just give up on their dreams. Many of them don't
really believe they could really have the kind of lifestyle they
want, so they end up watching TV to watch others live the lives
they want. They end up settling for a weekly pay check and
some continue to complain about what is not happening in their life.
So the question each of us can
ask ourself is this; Do we want to be part of this world class group
which is the top 5% thinkers of the world? If so, we need to do
what they have done which means that we need to take action to
change something in ourself. The exciting part is that we can
make this change if we want because what we need to do to change our
belief is available to all of us if only we look for
I am sure if I asked different
leaders to send me a list of books on this subject I would get
enough to fill this page. And if you notice, it's a very very long
page! But one place you can go right now if you want a collection of thoughts,
habits and philosophies of the world class leaders, is Steve's

Another great source that many
of you have gone to is the DVD called The
Secret. I watched this twice in a row the first time I
played it. Many of Steves friends are on the DVD because
this secret is how all world class people think. And they
are more than willing to teach you this secret as well. The first
time I used it was to get over my fear of heights, and it worked! I
also used it to beat cancer but at the time I didn't know I was
using this secret. But now that I do know about it, I can use
it at will anytime I wish!
You can learn more about
The Secret here http://shop.thesecret.tv/Shops/DVD_Offer.php
You can watch this DVD online but I
would suggest you buy it because once you view it, you will want to
replay it again and again. And if you are like those of us who
already own a copy, you will want to share it with your family,
friends, and everyone else you want to help to a better
Also, as I was writing this
newsletter, Allan and Hannah Sharapan, who are also very successful
and Shaklee Master Coordinators, sent me a message from Brian Tracy,
another one who understands what success is all about. I included it
below for when you have time to read it, like now ;).
The reason they all have such great
belief in where they are going is because they read this kind of
information all the time. In other words, they put good stuff
in their thinking process to replace the bad stuff and so the change
is automatic. Just look at the success they all have in this
industry and you will see the results you can also expect when
you do the same.
Read Brian's message a few times below
for he hits on these points very well. But even more important,
don't just read it this time, or watch the DVD, or listen to this
great information. Begin today to use it in your life to take
you where you want to be. It is very powerful stuff and it does
work. But the one question I have for you is this, do you believe

The Parable of
The Parable of the Talents
is the primary reason for wealth or poverty throughout history.
Reasons For Rich or
Why do some people
retire rich and most people retire poor? This subject has fascinated
philosophers, thinkers, mystics and teachers throughout the ages.
There have been so many cases of hundreds or thousands and even
millions of men and women who have started with nothing and become
financially independent that people are naturally curious to know
why it happened and what are the common rules or principles that
others can apply to become wealthy as well.
People Become Rich
illustration of this key principle is called the parable of the
talents. In the Bible, it says, "To him that hath, shall more be
given, and he shall have abundance. But from him that hath not, even
that which he hath shall be taken away."
Accumulation Leads to More
What does it mean? In the modern
world, we say "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer." The
fact is that people who accumulate money tend to accumulate more and
more. People who don't accumulate money seem to lose even that
little bit of money which they have.
Why should this happen?
The great success principle, the single idea that explains human
destiny is simple. It says that, "you become what you think about,
most of the time."
Control Your Thoughts
whatever you dwell upon, grows in your reality. You create your
entire world by the things you choose to think about and how you
choose to think about them.
It just so happens that wealthy,
successful people fill their minds with thoughts, words, pictures
and images of wealth, affluence, success, productivity and solutions
to problems in the marketplace, most of the time. These thoughts
trigger the reticular activating cortex, the part of the brain that
makes you more alert and sensitive to things that you have decided
are important to you.
Activate Your Reticular
For example, if you decide to invest
in a mutual fund, you will start to see news and information about
mutual funds everywhere. Mentions in newspapers and magazines will
jump out at you. These notices have always been there but now you
have sensitized your brain to pick them up and draw them to your
attention with far greater frequency and vividness. This is the
function and power of your reticular cortex.
On the other hand, what do poor
people think about most of the time? Unfortunately, poor people fill
their minds with thoughts of scarcity, lack, poverty, being unable
to afford things. They are always thinking and talking about how
little money they have, how much things cost and how they wish
things could be better financially. What they think about most of
the time is how little money they have.
Think Like Wealthy People
Wealthy people from an early age
think about how much they have, how much they want and all the
different things they can do to acquire and earn the money and
things they desire.
Out How Rich People Think
Here's a rule for
you. If you want to become successful, find out what failures do and
don't do it. If you want to be wealthy, find out what poor people
think about, and avoid thinking in those ways. Instead, find out how
wealthy people think. Find out what they read. Find out how they
spend their time. Study their lives, read their stories and
autobiographies and listen to their words when they are interviewed
and on tape. The more you find out what financially successful
people think and talk about most of the time, and do the same
things, the more rapidly you will enjoy the same rewards that they
Here are two things you can do to put
this parable of the talents into action:
First, make a
decision today that from now on you will think and talk only about
the financial success that you desire. At the same time, you will
refuse to talk about or dwell upon your financial problems.
Second, instead of saying, "I can't afford it," instead ask
the question, "How can I afford it?" When you think of something
that you want or need that you don't have the money for at the time,
the only question you ask is, "How?" How can you get it? What can
you do to achieve it? What are your options? How can you get from
where you are to where you want to go? This type of attitude will
change your life.
