success quotes: Dreams: Daily Inspiration: May 18, 2012 - 05/18/12 04:10 AM
Good Friday to you!
Today’s word is Dreams.
Without them, where are you going?  What are you working towards?  Why even wake up?
Dreams give you something to live for, a goal to achieve, a want and a desire.  They are a necessary part of life that is needed to help us to achieve the things we want in life.

Whether it’s a particular type of car, a vacation, a spouse, to learn a language, to go on a special trip or it could be something spiritual.
Dreams, like goals are something that helps us to move forward, not only … (5 comments)

success quotes: Concentrate: Daily Inspiration: May 17, 2012 - 05/17/12 07:53 AM
Good Thursday to you!
Today’s word is Concentrate.
Many times, much work that we do is done on autopilot.  This is fine because there are many tasks that can be done this way. 
Most of our money, however, comes from us dealing with someone and having to speak to him or her.  This needs to be done by concentrating.  It is vitally important what we say and do, because, without our bringing in new business and properly taking care of the business in front of us – we have no business!
So, the next time that you are doing your business … (1 comments)

Ideas are needed for us to be able to move forward.  These ideas do not have to be our own, however, they could becomes our own by utilizing them to our advantage for whatever you are hoping to realize.

success quotes: Ignorance: Daily Inspiration: May 14, 2012 - 05/14/12 04:37 AM
Good Monday morning to you!
Today’s word is Ignorance.
It’s amazes me when I look around in my business and find that people that are in my business take things at face value.
What if those around me read something wrong or were incorrectly taught?  They, then start regurgitating what they have been told, believing themselves to be right, when, they could just as easily looked up the information that they were looking for and then, perhaps, understood it there way.
Many will say “so and so taught me that.”  Sorry folks, it doesn’t mean that they are right about that … (3 comments)

Good Thursday to you!
Sorry that I haven’t been around this week, many family obligations.
Today’s word is Believe.
Being in a niche business, I found it difficult to find a CRM/Tracking system that I could use with ease and simplicity for my business.
Yes, I found others that I could semi-customize, however, they just never seemed to work the way I needed them to for my business and I’ve tried over 10, highly rated systems and gave them all the “college try”.
I started writing down what I wanted in a system and before I knew it I had over … (4 comments)

success quotes: Daily Inspiration: May 4, 2012 - 05/04/12 05:39 AM
Good Friday to you!
Today’s word is Learning.
Never stop learning about the subject of what you do because you will never know it all.  Sometimes, the more you look into your business and a specific subject, the more there is to know.
Find a niche in what you do and learn everything that you can about it so that you will be the one that someone wants to go to when that subject comes up.
Become the authority (the best you can) on a specific subject.
When you stop learning, you might as well lie down and die.

success quotes: Daily Inspiration: May 3, 2012 - 05/03/12 11:22 AM
Good Thursday to you!
Today’s word is Tenacity.
Much like persistence and perseverance, you need to be tenacious in what you do each day and how you handle situations.
Being tenacious or having tenacity means many things, yet the one that means the most to me is stubbornly unyielding.
To move forward in life and in business my belief is that all three are needed: Tenacity, Persistence, & Perserverance.
 
 “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.  The fears are paper tigers.  You can do anything you decide to do.  You can act to … (2 comments)

Good Wednesday to you!
Today’s word is Perseverance.
Yesterday, I spoke about Persistence. I know that the two are almost exactly the same, however, I believe that with the slight differences of the two-you need both as you move forward in your life and in business.
I can tell you from recent experience that persistence is definitely paying off, but I couldn’t persist without perserverance!

Good Tuesday to you!
Today’s word is Persistence. 
Many times, in my business of Asset Recovery I send out many emails, letters, and make phone calls.  Most of the time people just don’t believe that they have ten’s of thousands of dollars out there that they don’t know about.
I have the credentials, testimonials, and everything is handled by attorneys, however, people just don’t believe.  When I think about it, I understand.
I still do it everyday (especially because I enjoy what I do) and still go through the grind that it can be at times.
When someone doesn’t believe, … (5 comments)

Good Monday to you!
Wow, being under the weather really sucks!  It's been a week since my last post and I've had the AR blues.
Posting on AR is a habit that I've gotten into and really enjoy.  
Since I've been down and out, I’ve got to get my focus back!
Remember, there are many different areas of your business that you can do and be in, but you can't be everywhere at once.  
Focus on an area that you really love and are good at, a niche that you can command and people will think of you when … (6 comments)

Good Monday to you!
I’ve got to go back to basics.
There are so many things to do and that need to get done, that at times you can be overwhelmed.
Even following your “To Do” list, there are still many distractions that happen to you and sometimes there is no control.  When this happens, I find that I have to go back to basics and ultimately, what works for me.
Eventually, it all comes down to focus and in making successful habits.  Habits are not easy to achieve (whether they happen to be good or bad), they just take time.

success quotes: Daily Inspiration: April 20, 2012 - 04/20/12 07:21 AM
 
Never be afraid to ask or help.
Prioritizing and getting yourself straight.

Prioritizing is putting down on paper how you can logically get through your day, week, and month and beyond.  It’s about logically thinking spending your time wisely and efficiently so that you can make your time count.
It won’t always work that way, but it gives you a roadmap of where you want to be and to go.  You may be ready to tackle that day full of vigor and optimism, however, distractions do happen.  Phone calls you didn’t plan for (which can be a good or … (4 comments)

Good Thursday Morning to you!
Persistence is pressing on even when you don’t want to.
Persistence is the ability to maintain action regardless of your feelings. You must maintain action and press on even when you feel like quitting (which in some cases can feel like all the time!)

Don’t give up.  Believe in yourself and in what you can do and accomplish.  Your persistence is what allows you to keep moving forward even when you lack the motivation to do so. 
In some ways, it is the engine that helps drive the motivation.
Persistence is pressing on even when … (3 comments)

Good Wednesday to you!
If you believe in what you are doing, don't give up.
There are many people that do things, especially in marketing that try and try and then just give up hoping that the next best thing works.
I have believed in a certain type of marketing and have tweaked it to get better results and for a while - nothing.  But, I kept doing it because I believed.
Well, lo and behold, I signed a large deal yesterday, got two phone calls from people that received my marketing and want to move forward and I got an … (3 comments)

Good Monday morning!
Your mind is a computer.

You’ve heard the saying GIGO.  Garbage In, Garbage Out.  Always believe in yourself and in what you are doing.  Whether you believe you can or can’t, you’re usually right.
Case in point.  This is a very simple case, however, I find it pertinent to this post.
Many years ago, with my ex-wife, I attended a family reunion of hers with 88 family members that attended.  Not one member of her family actually knew all that were there except the great-grandmother. 
Now, most people that I know are always saying how bad they … (5 comments)

Good Friday morning!
Help other people achieve what they want. 
Learn not to put yourself first, but do so for others.  Your actions have an impact on those around you, so it's of the utmost importance to give your best effort with others in mind.

By helping others, you will find that you, yourself will be helped along the way.
Help other people achieve what they want.

Good Monday morning!
Do you know how to be happy today?  
Many of us (myself included) continually look to tomorrow and oft times forget about today.  We stay so focused on the successes that we want to achieve, that we tend to lose sight of what is going on around us at the moment.

Friends, family...  Don't shut out what's in front of you while you pursue your dreams.  Make that around you a part of who and what you are, because it and they are.
Do you know how to be happy today?

Good Friday morning!
What you do today, determines what happens tomorrow.  
You need to make sure that you get to things that matter, not only for today, but help you set up for tomorrow.
Making your list of things to do and getting some of them accomplished gets you closer to your goals as long as it’s notjust “busy” work.

What you do today, determines what happens tomorrow.

Good Thursday morning!
Nike says "Just Do It."  
Do you get things done throughout the day only to realize that it was just busy work without ever really getting anything accomplished?
I thing that that has happended to many of us.
I look back and realize that I've done that a few times over the last couple of weeks.  When I was talking some of the frustrations that I was having in my business with my wife, she asked what happened to the list that I made everyday that I would use and start scratching things off.
She's right, I … (4 comments)
