Coaching: Personal Development with the help of Napoleon Hill(Day 44/90)

Hi Friends,

I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I hope you enjoyed yourself but also learned something new. I hope you got some work done each day that made you get one step closer to achieving your goals. I hope you read something or listened to someone giving you value and inspiration.

I had a great weekend with my lady. It was her birthday this weekend so we decided to take some extra time to celebrate. However, we made sure we had finished all our daily tasks each day before we relaxed. We have a larger goal in life, we don’t just see this weekend(even though we enjoy each day) but we have a longer perspective of where we want to be and what we want to accomplish. So we make a plan and we take action towards our goals each day.

Today I am going into chapter 3 of “Master Key to Riches” by Napoleon Hill. Since I joined the internet marketing business I have been very engaged in personal development. I had no idea that I would develop like this before I started. I didn’t really realize it was that important to work on yourself for success. Well, now I know! And I hope you will realize this as well. No matter what you do, really, you will benefit greatly from spending some time to work on yourself.

By coaching your mind, by training your mindset in a certain way, you will attract riches. Riches = money? Sure, but that is not the only riches we are talking about. Napoleon Hill talks about 12 riches and only one of them has to do with economic security. “That’s not what I am looking for”, you may think.. Well, you would be surprised…! I recommend you pick this book up yourself as well besides listening to my videos.

I am only giving you one of the nine practices for receiving life’s rewards today.. Why not all nine? I want you to get engaged. Don’t just be a passive listener. Let me know that you want to hear the rest of them. Comment or like to this post or email me at ron@elitetrafficcommunity.com, and I will share more from this book.

Just click like, and I will consider it. Do something. Take action to get closer to your goals today.

Talk to you soon!

Daily tasks to become a successful internet marketer(advice from Vick Strizheus, day 38/90)

My topic today relates to what I learnt this weekend at the “Don’t be a wussy” event in Denver. As promised to you, I will try to relay the knowledge I gained form you this week.

First of all, did you check out the blog post yesterday? If not, stop reading right NOW and go look at it. It’s important you take that step before anything else. You can find yesterday’s blog post HERE. 

 

So… if you read yesterday’s post we can begin with the next step!

Vick Strizheus, my mentor and creator of Big Idea Mastermind, is the guy who taught me what I am about to teach you. I have actually been doing part of this for maybe 7 months now. However, just hearing him explain it all again in person made me grasp the importance of it even more. And I have tweaked my approach to this since then.

A lot of people get frustrated when they don’t see results overnight. They join an internet marketing business and think that they are going to wake up rich the next day. Well, they are in for a huge disappointment.  Internet marketing is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. Just like any other business it takes time to build up. You need to invest some time and money into it for it to become the full time(but flexible and fun) career it can be. With full time I mean it can be your ONLY income if you apply the information and training you get properly. Top Earners use about 2-4 hours per day on their business. That’s it. NO, stop it! Don’t for a second think that they are any different from you. YOU CAN BE JUST AS SUCCESSFUL!  We all start from the same point. From scratch. We all have to learn how to become successful individually. Luckily, within the Big Idea Mastermind network we are all extremely excited when we can be of assistance to others. If you are brand new to internet marketing – we are there with massive support to help you succeed.

We want to see each and one of our team members be successful internet marketers that can choose for themselves exactly how they want to spend their time and their life. That’s what we are here for! We fulfill dreams!

To start your own business online – all you need to begin is $25 for Big Idea Mastermind/Empower Network. $25 – if you “can’t afford it”, this is nothing for you. There is ALWAYS a way to make something happen if you want it enough. If your desire and dreams are strong enough. $25 equals a big lunch or a night at the movie theatre. It just comes down to priorities.

If you create your own online business – yes you have to work on it and build it up like any other serious business – but you will eventually be able to live life on your own terms.. and isn’t that what we all really want?

OK, sorry – I lost track here for a minute.. Back to the “lesson” of today..

Now, Vick has been extremely successful with his internet marketing career. He has been working on this for about eight years now, seven of which have been very successful. If you are going to listen to any advice from anyone within this field – with him is a great place to start.

This weekend he gave us his very own recipe for success with internet marketing:

1. READ daily – at least 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes listening to someone:

– What?: books ton the subject of personal development are  recommended (This could be of Napoleon Hill, James Allen, Dale Carnegie, Maxwell Maltz, Zig Ziglar). You can also listen on audio books and/or watch videos on youtube etc within the topics you are trying to progress. If you are a member of EN/BIM you get loads of valuable training in your back office.

-Why? If you want to be successful in ANYTHING you have to work on yourself, know what you want and make clear intentions. Know how to work with your mind to make it work for you.

2. Spend 1-2 hours EACH DAY where you research your field. Shut off all Facebook, chats, phone etc and only work on research for what you are trying to do. If this is internet marketing – use search engines, blogs, youtube, pinterest, stumble upon etc to look for new ways to market your business.

-Why? This is how you can unlock your own tools for promoting your business. Find something that everyone else isn’t using. Use your creativity and create something new!

3. Apply what you learned. Use what you learned in the previous hours that day. If it’s some new knowledge from reading or listening to others – write a blog post about… or make a list or schedule(or whatever you may have learnt.. use it!). If it’s new traffic source – try it! PS. always start SMALL SCALE on new traffic sources – make sure they are effective and actually convert before you scale it up.

Finally – BE CONSISTENT! Keep working on this every day. Don’t take a break and don’t give up. As mentioned before, building a successful business takes more than one night.

Don’t you want a business you can have for the rest of your life?

Don’t you want to make your own hours and spend more time with the family?

Don’t you want to cut down work to about 2-3 hours per day and make more money than you do today?

Don’t you want to travel the world and live life NOW?

If this is what you want – Big Idea Mastermind can help YOU! You can get rid of any financial troubles you may have, you can achieve your deepest goals in life – but you have to be willing to take this as the serious business it is.

I hope you found this helpful. Please let me know with your comments below!

 

Day 12/90 – 90 Day Opportunity – Self-Reliance

Wait, you jumped from Day 8 to Day 12? You cheated on your challenge!!?

Nope, I didn’t. But my videos in between were posted on my other Empower Network blog.

Watch them HERE

 

Day 12/90 –

Got stuck in traffic this morning and started seeing how the chain effects of that delay could impact my day and all that I needed to do. The result? You’re getting a “live-from-traffic” video today.

Anyways, topic of today is Self-Reliance. We have two parts of self-reliance, one is self-deprecation and the other is self-conceit.

With self-deprecation you believe in preconceived notions about what you may or may not be good at, putting limits to your life and ideas. You would be literally strangling your dreams.

Self-conceit on the other hand makes you believe that you don’t need anyone, you become boastful and arrogant.

Both of these two can be very damaging for your chances of becoming successful. Work on it, be aware and control them so that you can open up a way of getting to where you want to be.

Day 8/90 – 90 Day Opportunity – Don’t Be a Shell of Yourself

Went on a run this morning and it was the longest run I’ve done for at least the last 2 years! I used to be in a bad spot.. At some point I even smoked a pack of cigarettes per day. Since I started working on my mindset and my personal growth, things have changed.

Life feels brighter and happier for each day!

Topic of today relates to this and how I want you to NOT be a shell of yourself(like that cool sculpture we found at the Hirshorn Sculpture Garden). We were just walking by and spotted it, felt like it would be a good image to put up for the topic of the day(plus I was dying from my run and needed a break!)

Work on yourself, expand yourself and make sure you utilize all you can of your abilities.

It feels AWESOME.

Have a great Sunday evening!

Day 7/90 – 90 Day Opportunity – Find those with similar goals, hang out, be successful!

Wow, I can’t believe it is day 7 already… Kinda scary how fast time passes sometimes.

I have had 7 days of making one video per day. It’s been good but also very challenging at times. Some days I know exactly what I want to tell you guys. Other days I have to dig deep to think of what you would find interesting or valuable. PLEASE if you have a preference on what direction you want me to take in these videos, topics etc, let me know.

I have also had 7 days of my new workout regime. I have a set of exercises I have to do each single day.. Same things, every day.. but some exercises I increase reps/sets per day, others I increase per week.. I already feel stuff happening so we’ll see how I will feel in 90 days! woooh

Anyways, I’m losing track here.. Topic of today is one that fascinates me… How your environment can affect your ability to reach your goals. How you should surround yourself with likeminded people who aim for the same accomplishments as yourself, and how by doing this you can be so much more successful! Get together, work together for the common goal and see how much smoother it gets.

I have to say that the world wide web has made this world so much smaller for me, and helped me connect with other likeminded people from all over the place! Through my blog, twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.. It makes it easier to connect and grow.

So, that’s all for today folks!

Day 6/90 – BIM Opportunity – The Four Pillars of Integrity

Happy Friday, everyone!

I hope you have had an amazing week! I know I did..

This is my first Friday during the 90 Day Video Opportunity, and to keep your attention I decided to switch out the tree/park background and went somewhere different.

Hopefully you have seen my last few videos where I give some hands on suggestions on how to handle every day challenges. Today’s topic relates to all of my previous videos. How, you say? Well, without integrity none of the other techniques will last for long. You need to build your integrity with some pretty solid pillars to be able to keep this up. Honestly, this is my bad, but this video should  probably have been number 1, and not number 6.. oh well, there you go.. That’s part of the process of learning I guess.

Anyways, I am getting late for a BBQ with my friends now so I gotta duck out. I hope you enjoy my video and that you have a fantastic nice and relaxing Friday night.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Ron

PS. Would love if you look me up these other spots as well:

Day 5/90 – 90 Day Opportunity – Anger, the disease we all carry the cure for

Wow, day five and my muscles are sore. Only 85 more days to go on this!

Topic of today is how to prevent anger from controlling your thoughts and your every day life. How important it is to not let yourself carry your frustrations with you through your day. In the end, you are the one who get hurt the most from carrying anger around.

Do you think that guy in traffic that cut you off in the morning rush hour really remembers your encounter all day? No, let it go and move on. Leave space in your mind for growth and positivity. Don’t let anger bury your mind. Don’t let your anger become your disease.

Day 17/30: 30/30/30 Challenge – Dropping by to share this extremely motivating video!

Happy Saturday, everyone! 🙂

Hope your weekend is fantastic. Hope your challenge is going great!

Wanted to quickly drop by to share this extremely motivating video I came across today. This guy, a veteran barely able to walk, went from obese and weak to super fit and running around. Very impressive.

Day 16/30: Words of Wisdom on a Friday Night

Hi friends,

I just wanted to share some words of wisdom from one of my mentors on this Friday night. Mentor David Sharpe out jet skiing. He worked hard, he struggled but he eventually came to a place in life where he managed to get going on making his dreams come true.

Listen to what he has to say and…

..ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

Day 15/30: 30/30/30 Challenge – rerun “DECISION: THE CATALYST FOR SUCCESS”

Dear Challenge-takers,

Today marks your half-way-there point in the 30/30/30 challenge. If you made it to day 15 I want to congratulate you with a job well done so far. I am sure you are starting to sense big changes coming. Remember, change your mind – change your life!

Your mind has SO MUCH to do with how the rest of your life works out for you.

There is NO WAY focusing on negative stuff will get you anywhere but somewhere with more negativity. It’s just how it works. I know it is hard, heck – I am still struggling some days myself with controlling my mind. It is always going to be a work in progress and it is always going to be tough days.

People around you may say you are silly for thinking you can “live in an imaginary world” and they may say “real life is not like that”. What are those? Typical symptoms of someone in need of some personal development.

Mental/personal development works and it is crucial for happy survival. I am living proof of this!

Anyways, not sure what the 30/30/30 challenge is you can see my video about it HERE. 

It is not too late to start today. You can jump on and start at day 1 whenever works for you. If there is one day you miss, you just start back up with day 1 the next day. Keep working! Don’t give up! We don’t like quitters!

Below is a rerun of an older blog post of mine. This is related to a chapter of the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill(if you are on my email newsletter list you have received a pdf file with this entire book as a gift already). Today’s chapter is number 9 about Decisions.

Enjoy!

Let me hear your thoughts!

So I want to talk to you about DECISIONS and why it is so crucial for your success.

This blog post relates to chapter 9 from Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. 

I just have to say it again: this book is one of the absolute best books I have ever accepted into my life!

I try to keep my posts short and I REALLY hope you actually went and got the book yourself by now. It will be absolutely worth it, and it is not an expensive purchase. Maybe you can even find it at the library for free(or email me/comment and I can send it to you via a pdf file)!

Hopefully you have been following along in my previous posts here and regardless if you have gotten “ALL IN” with the Big Idea Mastermind or not, you should definitely be able to start seeing the pieces of the puzzle coming together for you. I don’t care if you are an internet marketer or not.. I want to help you with your mindset regardless. If you are NOT noticing anything changing for you yet then you should go back to my first post about DESIRE and start over. Do the 6 steps I described. This can change your life!!

Procrastination – the opposite of DECISION.

In this chapter Napoleon Hill says millionaires make their decisions quickly and change their minds very rarely.

This is because they must be firm and direct in their goals,

 Those who failed to become rich often change their minds a lot and take forever to make a decision.  Is this YOU??

A lot of procrastinators say they need to have all the information ready before they can make a decision.

This will inevitably make you fail because by the time you make a decision someone else has probably beaten you to it.

If you think something’s a good idea you should definitely act on it!! 

Trust your gut reaction!

If you have a goal and your attempt to achieve it fails the first time around, check for what information you may have been missing before you decide to give up and change your goals altogether.

 It takes courage to make a decision and to stay with it

You will always have doubters so you and your mastermind group/partners must stay on the same page.

 Most people are unsatisfied with a certain part of their life and –

Misery Loves Company”! Unfortunately a lot of people will try to bring you down before they try to lift you up. This is why you should surround yourself with those who have the same goals as You!!!

THAT WOULD BE ME! 🙂

In this chapter in the book they use of the declaration of independence as an example…

Napoleon Hill also talks about Henry Ford, we all know how well he did in the car business!  Just look around. Look at the success stories around  you both current and past ones. Tap into the knowledge that those stories left behind. You will see that the things mentioned in these posts and in this book will all be present at the real success stories.

You can definitely read this part on your own time.. Just know if you ever do change your decision it should be because of those who are in your Mastermind Group(your group of trusted people who supports your goals), if not your decision may not be sound.

And you NEED someone to bounce ideas off of.

What decisions have you made today?

Have you made a decision to make more money?

 Turn your greatest desire to its monetary equivalent!!!

 If you would like to work closely with me and be part of my Mastermind group, click THIS LINK and see how to go about it. 

PS. I do NOT accept negativity in my Mastermind group. You must be willing to cooperate, to develop your own mindset, to assist others as well as accepting assistance yourself. We can do this together! Positive, positive, positive!

As always I would LOVE to hear from you if you have any thoughts, comments or questions. Email me directly at ronald.majette(at)gmail(dot)com.

Best,
