Success Tip – Darren Hardy says you must fail to become successful

“The key to success is massive failure”

Darren Hardy talks a lot about failure. Considering he costs about $25,000 for a 2 hour seminar, it seems crazy that he talks about failure.

He believes that our Life sits on the pendulum and if you can create pain, rejection, sadness and failure, you will have great joy, love, happiness and success.

Pain/Rejection/Sadness/Failure = Joy/Love/Happiness/Success

His first job was a real estate agent, I tell his story in my video.

“They can’t beat you if they can’t out fail you”

Darren Hardy – 21st Century Leadership

In the 21st Century many things have changed in our world.

Graduates are coming out of school without a job. 17,000,000 jobs in the work place don’t even require a college degree. And the worst part is that these Jobs aren’t coming back – Companies have found out how to do more with less (over seas or contract workers)
The industrial age has died. An economic shift in human history – redistribution is happening.

Millionaires world wide have changed.
In 1900 there were 5,000 millionaires
In 2000 there were 7,000,000 millionaires
In 2010 there were 10,000,000 millionaires.

Are you going to a part of this number for 2013/14?

The key skills to capitalize are needed and LEADERSHIP is the KEY.

The speed of change is accelerating – technology, knowledge, globalization, demographics (millennial generation 1980s – 1990s – 5 generations in the work place, more women working). Once we truly understand these stats and these changes, our leadership needs to accommodate these changes.

Key Traits of 21st Century Leadership are:
** Character
** Skills
** Vision

Lets break these down:

1. Character
“Not your daddy’s leadership” – We did not witness what our parents did. The Military model is dead.
Oraganizations have changed from economic entity to Emotional Intelligence (relate and connect). It used to be financial capital – it is now human capital. Use to be control not its collaborations.

Lead by example – most basic principle yet most violated.

“I no longer listen to what people say, I just watch what they do” – Winston Churchill

The speed of the leader is the speed of the pack – Leaders set the pace!!

Darren Hardy says “People do not go as fast as they can – they go as fast as the leader”

Leaders helps people see themselves better then they are.

“Leadership is the ability to get extraordinary achievement from ordinary people” Brian Tracey

How to get the people you want to do what you want!
• 2 questions you need to ask
1. What attributes do you want? – For example: coachable, passionate, ethical, self confident, integrity
TOP 12 most important attributes to YOU
2. Do YOU have and demonstrate those attributes? You have to posses it to yourself first
Rate yourself on a scale of 1 – 10 on the top 12 attributes – you will discover where you need to go to work on YOU.

KEY Question – If you could quit and sign up with anyone – how would it be?

Would you want to be sponsored by you? What would it take for the everyone to choose you? How can you develop into that person?

2. Skills
Recruiting – everybody recruits
“Great people are not trained, they are found”

What people are looking for?
1. People – great people are there attract other great people
2. Challenge new, different, exciting, unique
3. Opportunity
4. Personal Growth
5. Money

Best recruiter in the world…..You Follow me
“Who you are speaks so loud I can’t hear a word you are saying”

Be the message you bring – You don’t attract what you want, you attract only who you are. We communicate with feelings not words.

Turn SELL into HELP (Hit List vs Help List)
Turn GET to GIVE Strength, courage, confidence, love, belief, hope
Turn COMMUNICATION into CONNECT – Face to face, heart to heart

You can only care about those that care!! Working with the unwilling – cost of working with the wrong person = 10-15x/hour

Why do I want to work with you? Free country – you can build this business.
Here is what it takes to work with me….10 core commitments. If you are good with those 10, I will support you all the way. If one is not followed – see ya.
Talk to a new person each day, go to meetings, convention
Work with fewer people – DEEPER!!

Fewer statement and ask more questions – find out what their hopes, their dreams, their desires – align meaning and purpose then help them achieve them
Recognize and reward

Measure yourself, not by your rank advancement
The people who you are going help – help them accomplish their dreams/goals

21st Century Leadership
Responsibility – Opportunity — Soul Fulfillment

ASK yourself these questions:
WHY? —-

Darren Hardy was amazing and I cannot wait to share more from what I learned from him.

Its all about Hard Freakin Work

Why are you not as successful as you want to be right now?

STOP looing for the quick fit for success, happiness and wealth!

Success is earned one day at a time, one step at a time, one decision at a time, one phone call at a time, one meeting at a time.

You cannot own success! Once you make it to this stage of success – you can only rent success and rent is due every day!!

Darren Hardy says we face 4 Traps every single day.
They are:
— Results are invisible. Choices you make in the moment
— Subtle – keep getting back on track
— Immediate gradification
— What’s easy to do is also easy NOT to do

I have so much more to share AND we get to spend more time with him tonight! So excited.

Eric Worre – Book Review Chapter 1

This is the first of many chapters for my book review. I love Erric Worre and what he stands for. He asks us to “become a professional”. He believes Network Marketing is not perfect but it is better.

In this chapter I share the different types of “careers” and the Perfect Career list.

What do you do for your personal development?

I have been MIA this weekend as I attended the largest North American Fitness and Wellness Conference. I was up at 4AM both Friday and Saturday mornings and I am NOT a morning person. Im fact I HATE mornings. I struggle to get out of bed before 8am most mornings. So to get out of bed and arrive at the conference by 5am was a real commitment for me. I am keeping up to-date with my certifications in my personal training and fitness instructor and learning the new trends and information in my industry.

This video talks about the importance of personal development.

What are you doing for your own business and your personal development?

Please comment and let me know.

Being Smart, Generous and Thoughtful are the Sexiest Things you can do!

Wow I have serious goosebumps after watching this speech. I had to do a double take when I realized it was Ashton Kutcher who is not really known for his serious and deep side.

This speech was at the Teen Choice Awards and I love it because I think it is so important to teach our young adults this.

What an amazing man who totally gets it. And who knew his real name was Chris lol

Please share and comment so we can get everyone to see this speech. It applies to us all.

Have you ever had a hard day?

Business Success Tip – Have You Ever Had a Hard Day?

Happy Friday Friends – I had an extremely hard run today and was reflecting on the whys and hows of challenges.

My run sucked!! It royally sucked. Plan and simple and when you are a seasoned runner, it sucks when that happens. I am appreciative that I was able to wake up this morning and run, that I am healthy enough to do it but sometimes it is HARD. My knee hurt, I was tired and it was very hard!

So I ask you “Have you ever had a hard day, event, week, time?” I think the truth is OF COURSE. We all have! It is how we go about getting through those moments that are the most important. Those are the greatest lessons.

See what I did today to get through it……(watch the video)

Please let me know what you do to get through your own rough times.
