Women looking across the ocean "thoughts become things"

Thoughts Now Are The Future Then

We are in our current place (physically, mentally, emotionally), because of our thoughts in the past. When we stay focused on the things we don’t want we get more of those things.

We are a product of our thoughts. We become what we think about. Thoughts become things. This is the “thinking space” that Napoleon Hill wrote about. If we spend our time thinking of the things we don’t want then we get more of that. When we commit to thinking of the things we do want, we start to receive.

We create our lives according to what occupies our thoughts.

What we want is negligible, Thoughts deliver outcomes. We can relive the past or create a future. Our biggest problem is that we think more of the negatives than the positives.

If you were to observe your thoughts for a day or two would you find that . .

You worry often and think about these things.

You focus on problems and often miss solutions.

You focus on fears and concerns more than the pleasant and wonderful things around you.

Your current situation is the result of the state of your thoughts. If your mind is focused in the past it will become your future. Your future is created by the thoughts you have now.

The way forward is to let the past live in its own and for you to concentrate your thoughts on a better future. Focus on the best in your life right now and you will begin to create a better future.

Because you are creating your future right now. This makes this moment, in the present, the most important time you’ll know. Keep your mind present and focused on the happiness you see and your future will grow more positive.

Your thoughts attract your reality. You can decide what that will be; Health, Wealth, Love or Happiness.

If your focus remains on what you don’t want you can attract those things as well. The human mind considers negatives more powerful than positives. This mechanism is the source you need to change.

The energy you create is a magnet. Your mind, your body, and you are energy like everything that exists. When you control your mind and body your creating clarity and improving your energy. This is what attracts positive experience.

All lives are a mixture of these energies. A mixture of happiness and unhappiness. That is because your mind and its thoughts are in flickering states. If you stay focused on the present you will begin to change the nature of your thoughts and bring a better future.

Find yourself thinking with a skepticism? Think of Plato, Newton, Beethoven, Shakespeare, and Einstein. All spoke of this power of thought. Most of them wrote something about it. Now more than ever people are listening and creating remarkable futures.

“We are like people looking for something they have in their hands all the time; we’re looking in all directions except at the thing we want, which is probably why we haven’t found it.” – Plato 380BC

How To Create Evidence Of Prosperity

Are you a person that needs all the answers before you start? Do you often ask for, or read case studies? Interviews? Look for all the angles before you commit?

There are Law of Attraction students that ask “How is this going to come to me?” and sometimes “What more do I need to know before my desires become manifest?”

Attention Law of Attraction Students:

Stop analyzing the expectation of your outcomes. Your job is to accept the manifestations with gratefulness. Your job is not to figure out where and how you will receive them.

Here is one of the best explanations I’ve found . . .

The Clearest Explanation of The Secret & Law Of Attraction! from Lady Jaye on Vimeo.

Now, Here is a great tool that will help the over analyzers reduce the need to have it all figured out.

The over thinkers need to see or know the outcomes before they can fully accept the Law of Attraction exists and is working in their lives. They need proof. They desire evidence.

Unfortunately, there is no evidence or proof that can be placed in their hands. The Law of Attraction doesn’t provide tangible proof, but it does provide it. You just won’t be able to hold it in your hands.

The tool is this . . .

Record your personal evidence. Capture every coincidence. Think about this every time you think, speak, or hear one of these words . . .

Serendipity, Coincidence, Accident, Fortuity, Providence, Happenstance, Chance, Fate, or Faith.

. . . this one small exercise will provide its own evidence.

When you reduce the skepticism you reduce your doubt. Doubt attracts doubt the same as belief attracts belief. The Law of Attraction brings more of the same whether it’s wanted or unwanted. Doubt slows down the process. Reduce that negative outlook and you’ll speed up the manifestation of what’s good.

That’s what this one tool will do for you. Gathering your own proof will increase your belief. Each one of your personal experiences you can identify as good fortune, at no action of your own, will build more positive experience.you’re

The evidence you find will increase the knowing that the Law of Attraction is working for you.

If you are a skeptic, a thinker, analyzer, start your log of evidence today. Review your beliefs after you log 10 – 12 personal experiences that you can only owe to good fortune. Then enjoy the feeling that things are taken care of. That everything is happening in your best interests.

It is the recording of evidence and the celebrating of proof that will raise your vibration. Practice using this great tool. You’ll be giving more attention to your desires. Doing more and allowing the acceleration of the delivery of your manifestations.

Networking friends laughing while having a conversation

The Top 5 Challenges of New Network Marketers

Most new Network Marketers will have to overcome these 5 common challenges. Once they do, they find their new network marketing venture takes off.

Business success is a measure of how well you can connect with others. Just ask Dale Carnegie.

Professional networkers depend on profitable relationships.Networking events are their usual vehicle.

These events provide opportunities to meet new people and reconnect with ones they know. If you want to grow your business and promote your career, start attending.

Walking into a room full of strangers and striking up a conversation is difficult.

Take a look at the 5 challenges below and the solutions.

1. Hesitant to talk to strangers.

As soon as you had become good at using language someone taught you not to talk to strangers. For good reason. For young kids it isn’t safe, sometimes it’s not safe for adults either. So it’s not bad advice.

but . . .

In business, it’s 100% necessary. Talking to strangers is the best way to generate interest and support for your product or service. Don’t miss opportunities by avoiding new contacts. Make sure you’re reaching out and building valuable contacts.

To get past your hesitation and discomfort try setting an outcome.

Decide how many new people you will approach before the event starts.

Establish a number for new people to meet and what contact information you will get from them.

Do some homework and target some specific individuals you would like to know and work with.

Create a list of questions or ice breakers. Ask about their business. How they spend their free time. What they like or dislike about the event or upline. Keep your preformed questions broad and applicable to a wide audience.

A couple anecdotes won’t hurt should you find yourself past the introduction phase.

2. Not having a formal introduction.

Making connections is so much easier with a formal introduction. It sets the stage and offers up conversation starters. (Try to remember that as your networking prowess improves). Take the bull by the horns and have a well thought out introduction ready.

Do . . . think and plan your introduction.

Don’t . . . introduce yourself the same way every time.

Different situations and different personalities will mean you need differing introductions. Come up with a few and rehearse them in varying degrees. Let people know who you are, why you’re there, and why they want to get to know you.

3. Assuming other people will not like you.

That’s a risk your just going to have to get comfortable with. Reframe this thinking, it’s good if not everyone likes you. Expressing an opinion is part of being interesting. Not everyone will like yours, and that’s o.k.

This is your adventure. If you don’t take a risk you’ll give up the reward. The goal is not to be the most liked. The goal is making the best connections for you.

4. Having your intentions misunderstood.

This is going to happen. Be prepared for it. The good news: it creates an opportunity for humor. As long as your intentions are on the up and up; you’ve got a conversation starter. Later you may end up with a great anecdote.

The most common misunderstanding happens between men and women. At times your networking charm will be mistaking for flirting. Don’t be afraid of sharing things that are personal but keep some polite boundaries. If you have a significant other, mention them. Stay focused on the business and the long-term relationship and you’ll come out just fine.

5. Afraid to come off as pushy.

Being “pushy” is a different intention than being assertive. Assertiveness and confidence are qualities we can all respect.

Put this at the front of your mind and you can avoid sitting alone at functions and conventions. Worst case scenario is that you leave with no new connections at all, not you seemed too “pushy.”

Be open. Be friendly. Ask Questions and offer answers. This will help you avoid coming across as aggressive. Look for the people who are approachable. Maybe they are standing alone or talking in a group.

Be careful of groups of two. Sometimes it’s a private conversation or sometimes it’s the formation of a connection. Try to wait for the pair to break off or join another group. Then make your introduction.

If you recognize some of these stumbling blocks take action. Ignore the initial discomfort and soon you’ll work your events in a way that is valuable to you and others. Having a plan is critical to success in any endeavor and this is no different.

Once you move past your new networker road blocks; you’ll find yourself connecting with confidence. This will reflect on your marketing bottom line.
