This Business is
Really All About Belief.
Close your eyes and use your imagination. Go ahead and
do it now. Pretend that you are watching a movie of your life, the
way you want it to be. What would you see on the screen? Remember,
it's only a movie so you can direct it any way you want it to go.
What kind of a house would you live in? What kind of car would you
drive? How would you earn your income? What kind of person would you
be? Go ahead and try it for it is very powerful and it works,
but only if you believe it does.
You see it is the same way in our
lives but most fall well short of using all of their potential due
to their belief system. Some call this your paradigm. A paradigm is
not a "pair o' dimes....20 cents, but it is something like
that. It is like giving our two cents worth when we are giving
our opinion or point of view about something. So a paradigm is
nothing more than a point of view, more importantly, our point
of view... the way we see things. It doesn't mean that how we
see things are always true, but it is true to us, and that's what is
so important here.
To have the things we want, we
must do the things it takes and also be the kind of person we need
to be to have success. It's a complete circle; have, do, be,
have, do, be. Most people go about life this way. They want to
have things first, but never get around to doing what needs to be
done or even working on their belief system to become the person
they need to be. That's why 95% fail at getting what they
However, we can all change that. We
must first be the kind of person we need
to become in order to do what it
takes to have this success. So,
if being the kind of person we need to be is the easiest out of the
three, why not start there... be,
then do and then you
be anything, anytime he or she
wants. So look at it this way, become the person you want to
be and then you will
do what needs to be done to
have what you want in life. You don't have
to be controlled by your feelings about something, just focus
on what happened and then do something about it to make the changes
you want. It really is as simple as that!
You are the sum total of all of your
experiences you ever had up to this point. All of your thoughts
about yourself and those experiences...and all anybody's ever told
you about you and them. This is how your belief system was developed
up to this point in your life.
So your beliefs are habits of thoughts
you have. And because they are simply habits, and we know how we got
them, we can also change them too. Habits are things we think or do
without conscious attention...without being aware of them.
"The moment we are aware of what we
are thinking or doing, it's no longer a habit, it's a choice".
And so, because these habits of belief
about who we are are so important and control who we
are, what we do and what we have, it is important to learn
how to use them for our benefit. This is simple to do but not easy
for most people because their current belief system is so strong,
they will not allow it to change without some personal
I can't go into this topic much here
in a short newsletter but we will be working on this powerful law
together starting in the new year of 2007. If you want to be part of this special group of
Shaklee business leaders who are on the move, and you are ready to
experience exciting growth, let me know for we all can work together
on this to support each other. You don't need to be isolated in
Shaklee, for there is great support every where when you know where
to find it.
We understand that there are many of
you out there wanting more success in your lives and so we are
willing to help if you want our help. We have people all over the
country in many different Shaklee groups all working together to
improve their lives and the lives of all the people they care about.
So you are certainly welcome to join us if you like.
The bottom line is this: Have a
goal bigger than you are and when you do, you will not have the time
to sweat the small stuff. The bigger your goal, the more everything
else becomes the small stuff. This is when you become a true leader
in this business or do a much better job at whatever you want to do
in your life.
It is not a certain rank in
Shaklee that determines when a person is a true leader; it is who
that person becomes in the process. As a leader in this industry, our job is to coach
the people on our team to have fun, teach them the skills they
need to succeed, help them develop and grow as individuals and as
members of our team, and lastly, to win whenever we can.
Again, to reach this kind of leadership,
it all starts with your belief.
Let me know if you need any help for
we believe we can help you!
you need to do is ask and you will
have what you want!
Till next time,
