I wish you enough …………..

Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said: “I wish you enough.”

The daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom.” They kissed and the daughter left.

I Wish You Enough

I Wish You Enough

The mother walked over to the window where I sat. Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry.

I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied. “Forgive me for asking but why is this a forever good-bye?”

“I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is the next trip back will be for my funeral,” she said.

When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, “I wish you enough.” May I ask what that means?”

She began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more.

“When we said ‘I wish you enough’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them”. Then turning toward me, she shared the following, reciting it from memory,

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.”

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person. An hour to appreciate them. A day to love them. And an entire life to forget them…Share if you agree

The best way to find the yellow brick road of your life

Usually, the best way to find the yellow brick road of your life, Casey, is to start out on the dusty, dirt one.

And then let yourself become so preoccupied in making the best of it, having fun, and challenging yourself that you actually stop paying attention to the path.

Yellow-Brick-Road
Until, one day, not so long from now, with a new best friend, wearing cool clothes, feeling awesome, a teeny tiny bit taller, fresh from a WOW vacation, looking for the path you just left, you’ll notice that it’s 24 carats… baby.

And you’ll wonder for a long, long time, sipping on some exotic fruit drink, when the transformation actually took place…

Tripping,
The Universe

Activity Matters Most by Michael S. Clouse

Michael Clouse’s words of wisdom! This is one of my TOP 5 favorite articles he has written. I’ve trained from it many times. Thank you Michael for all that you share and give to so many!

Consider the following, and you decide…

Years ago I discovered that those who are deemed to be Masters in this “Networking thing” understand three simple truths about the business. Although you might hear these truths expressed somewhat differently from leader to leader, the underlying facts remain the same. For purposes of our discussion, we’ll refer to these truisms as, “Network Marketing’s Three Rules of Three.”

1. Know The Business You’re In

Network Marketing is about three things:
a) Finding People to talk to—Prospecting.
b) Talking to the people you find—Presentation.
c) Teaching others to do the same—Duplication.

2. Understand The Rules

Regardless of how you present your business:
a) Some people decide to join—Some Will.
b) Some people decide not to join—Some Won’t.
c) Some people decide not to decide—So What…

3. Get Better At The Game

Because everything in life is about who you become:
a) Work more on yourself than you do on your business.
b) Again, work more on yourself than you do on your business.
c) And again, work more on yourself than you do on your business.

I share this with you because for years leaders have been searching for a simple, highly duplicatable MLM system that new distributors could use to more quickly achieve success. And the most interesting part is, I now believe we’ve been overlooking the obvious for decades…

Getting Things Done

March 27, 2013 by 

One of the most common questions I receive is “Jack, how do you get so much done?” It’s a fair question, considering I’ve written 150 books, deliver an average of 50 live presentations around the world each year, invest a considerable amount of time with my Train the Trainer students, lead the Transformational Leadership Council, yet still have time to cultivate an amazing relationship with my wife, spend time with my kids and close friends, and take excellent care of my health.

In this article, I share seven of my top strategies for getting things done.

Strategy #1: Get Clear About What’s Required

When people set goals, particularly at the beginning of the year when working on their New Year’s resolutions, they tend to be overly optimistic about how much is actually possible. As a result, they over-commit or make lists that are far too long.

Strategy #2: Create a Daily Schedule

Simply setting aside time in your calendar may not be enough to achieve your goals. I go the extra step and create a daily schedule. Additionally, I use the Rule of 5. Each day I choose 5 specific tasks that will move me toward the completion of my goals and I ensure those tasks are included in my daily schedule.

Strategy #3: Focus on the “Big Rocks”

When planning my daily schedule, sometimes I realize that I have an unreasonable amount of work on my to-do list for the next day. I know that I can’t get it all done. This is when I turn to my list of “Big Rocks” – my most important priorities.

Strategy #4: Center and Visualize

I start each day with a meditation to help me get grounded. Before I get up from my meditation cushion, I mentally rehearse my day, visualizing and feeling myself staying focused, working efficiently, and being productive.

Strategy #5: Keep Score

To stay on track to achieve goals, it’s important to keep score. This means assessing, each day, whether or not you’ve done what was necessary to achieve your goals.

Strategy #6: Celebrate Milestones

Celebrating your progress along the way is essential to staying motivated.

Strategy #7: Schedule Down Time

When you’re on fire to achieve your goals, it’s tempting to skip free time. (This is when you often here people say, “I’ll rest when I’m dead.”)

Your goals are important – not only to you and your family, but to the world. You have a purpose, and your goals are how you are meant to live your purpose. The seven strategies I’ve shared here have been essential to my ability to get things done. Use them to ensure that when 2013 comes to an end, you’re celebrating the accomplishment of your goals, rather than regretting what hasn’t happened.

When Goals are Forgotten: 4 Steps to Get Back on Track

ImageMost people start pursuing their goals – especially New Year’s resolutions – with great passion. But over time, they lose momentum, burn out and put their dreams aside.

If this happens to you, it’s a clear-cut sign that your goals are not sustainable. In this article, you’ll discover how to get back on track toward your goals – and accelerate your momentum.

1. Evaluate Your Motivation

If you’ve lost momentum toward your goals, the first thing to do is verify your commitment. A lot of our goals tend to be “should’s” rather than deep “want to’s.” But I’ve discovered that without a burning desire to achieve a goal, your motivation wanes quickly, and your subconscious mind turns its attention to more exciting desires.

2. Are You Realistic?

Once you’ve confirmed that your goals are things you truly want to achieve, the second thing to verify is that your goals are realistic.

3. Declare Your Intentions

When you’re clear about which goals you’ll work on, you can increase your commitment by publicly declaring your intentions. Share your goals with the people in your life – the more, the better. You’ll be more likely to take action toward achieving your goals when the alternative is losing face with people about whom you care.

4. Creating Accountability

Most of us find it easy to let ourselves off the hook. We can quickly justify why we haven’t followed through on our commitment to take action on any particular day, just as we can easily make excuses about why we miss our targets completely.

It’s normal to veer off course when pursuing goals. Sometimes this happens because we’re not truly committed to our goals. Other times, it’s because we struggle to hold ourselves accountable for doing the necessary work. Use the tips in this article to get yourself back on track in making steady progress in turning your dreams into a reality.

The Promise: This business can set you free financially in one to three years.

Sharing this forward … not sure who originally posted this, but this is a great reminder!

The Price: To succeed, you will have to face and conquer 4 major enemies.

This is a true story about Mark Yarnell, a minister in a small Texas town. He was heading for bankruptcy and just about to lose his home and car. He looked for a way out and discovered Network Marketing.  Mark’s sponsor gave him the “promise” and also told him about the “price” to succeed. The 4 major enemies in your business are:

Enemy #1 Rejection
Mark approached 200 people to view a video, 80 told him they are not interested.

Enemy #2 Deception
Mark thought, “no problem, my sponsor warned me about that. I’ve still got 120 people that will watch” Guess what?  50 didn’t.

Enemy #3 Apathy
Mark thought, “no problem, my sponsor warned me about that. I’ve got 70 people who have watched the video.” Guess what? 57 said “not interested”

Enemy #4 Attrition
Undaunted Mark thought, “no problem, 13 people signed up.” Guess what? 12 of them dropped out of the business shortly thereafter.

Attrition left Mark with just one serious associate. But, to date, that single associate earns Mark over $50,000 per month.

Mark Yarnell’s story is not unique. Ask the person who introduced you to Isagenix – they have experienced all of the above.

Pick your goal and get into massive action. If you talk to enough people, you will make it!

Here’s the lesson: Your success is directly related to the degree to which you are willing to work to find others like yourself who are committed to succeed. Mark Yarnell’s odds were 1 out of 50. Would you be willing to go through 200 people to find 1 who will make you $50,000 per month? Or hear uncounted “No’s” to sign up 50 people to find a million dollar person? I know you will. It’s easier when you know the odds up front.

But here’s the catch” You have your own set of odds and you won’t know what they are until after you’ve succeeded. So if you’ve gone through 50 or 100 people and you haven’t found 1 serious person yet, you can either give up and assume the business doesn’t work or recognize that you are working through your own numbers.

Are you willing to find out what your own set of odds is? That means that you must pay the price for freedom. Remember that the numbers never fail you. Despite where you are in your skill level, your success is assured if you talk to enough people. And as your skill improves, so will your odds.

There is no such thing as luck in this industry. Winning big is a matter of being willing to pay the price. Are you?

Your future is in your hands! The choices which you make today will determine the course of your entire future.

May you have a successful future in all aspects of your life!
