Is there a self-help book that does not hammer on persistence?
What a yawn fest…..talk about a load of crap.
Hang in there! Don’t Quit!
Winners Never Quit & Quitters Never Win!
Gimme a break…….these great statements feel good but do they really do any good?
What are they trying to convey?
A WARM BATH
Sadly, these expressions are kind of like a warm bath.
A warm bath feels pretty good when you first get in but let’s face it, in the end you are sitting in a puddle of dirty, cold water. Continue reading ““Persistence is a By-Product of 4 Small Habits” by Mark J — Week 24″

When we first started in the master keys we did not know what was going to happen. Sometimes the exercises seemed trivial and sometimes the repetition seemed pointless. I can see now how important it is to lay a great foundation for the master keys program because NOW the rubber is starting to really meet the road. Not only is the Definite Major Purpose (DMP) becoming more and more the reality it is supposed to be, I am actually seeing the reality of the thought becoming a reality in well, physical reality…
When I first started to do my DMP, I was trying to follow instructions and I see now I was treating it more as a class assignment. I needed to make sure it came out to the satisfaction of the class leader. Then as time went on, I understood that I needed to make sure that the DMP was a real plan for my future, a plan I really wanted to believe was going to happen.

If you’re like most of us, you have certain goals or dreams that are important to you. No doubt you’ve written these down in various forms over the years. Have you ever taken the time to create a visual of some of the more important goals you hope to accomplish? A dream board is a great way to have your goals or dreams before you where you’ll see them every day.
I want to mention a few key elements that should be placed on your board. The first element is a compass of some sort. Either a picture of a compass, or an actual one will do. The reason for the compass is to remind you to stay on course. It’s not about keeping track of time . . . or clock watching, if you will. If you’ve written out your Definite Major Purpose, Personal Pivotal Needs, and OATS (see previous posts), then the compass on your dream board is to remind you that you’re headed toward your clearly defined goals. It’s a directional thing, rather than a case of “what time is it” various times throughout the day. Continue reading “Your Dream Board — Week 8”
I finally managed to determine my two PPN’s (Personal Pivotal Needs) that we were asked to put into place as we were writing our Definite Major Purpose. Your Personal Pivotal Needs are very important because they are the basic underpinnings of your written Definite Major Purpose as outlined by Napoleon Hill in his book, “Think and Grow Rich.”
I ended up changing my PPN’s several times because the ones I chose just didn’t feel right. I kept looking at the list of PPN’s over and over. I desired all of them in my life. To have to settle on two primary PPN’s was a difficult thing. It took much soul searching to finally decide on the PPN of Liberty. It felt completely right, the only problem was, it was just one of the two I needed. Back to more soul searching…. then it hit me. TRUE WEALTH… just really resonated with me. It wasn’t even on the list, but I knew it was what I truly wanted. Continue reading “Your PPN’s … Freedom and True Wealth — Week 6”
Most of us really want to be successful, but try as we may, success seems to be more or less a constant struggle in spite of written goals and the implementation of daily action steps. To the outside world, others may not really be aware of the struggle you’re going through that largely takes place in your own heart and mind.
This internal struggle or resistance may have been going on for quite some time. No matter what you try, the results come out pretty much the same. But things can really change for you and you can actually have the success you truly desire. It will take some effort on your part, but it’s definitely not a difficult thing to accomplish.

If you desire success in your network marketing business, you’ll need to consider a few crucial elements. First of all don’t worry, none of this is complicated. If you’ll follow some basic principles of success, you will see your business grow. There are 3 factors that you need to keep in mind that will determine where you are in 5 years: your skill set, your mindset & work ethic, and who you hang out with. The post entitled “Your DMP & OATS” is where you need to begin. You need to have these two elements in place before you begin your journey to success. Your Definite Major Purpose (DMP) is your “blueprint” to build the success you desire. It cannot be overlooked. When someone wants to build a bridge, for example, a very detailed and specific blueprint is needed, or no bridge will be built (or one that you would want to drive across anyway). Make your DMP as crystal clear as you can. When you speak it out loud 3 times per day, it trains your subconscious mind that this is what needs to happen and forces are set in motion which lead to your desired results. Your OATS is your action plan to acquire your DMP. Continue reading “Duplication is Your Key to Success — Week 4”
There are two elements that you need to have in order to achieve big success. Too often, even well-intentioned and talented people leave success to chance. They may know what they want, but it isn’t truly clearly defined on paper. Much of what they want and the plan of action to acquire it, is still in their head. You may have written down your goals numerous times in different forms, but do you have a well-defined and written “definite major purpose” (DMP) as mentioned in the previous post? Let’s begin with that.
First of all, determine what you really want or need. Not what someone else wants for you, what you truly want. That item or items is your DMP. Next, you must decide what you will give in return to acquire this, as there is no such thing as “something for nothing.” Is TV taking too much of your time? Are you spending time with negative people that would hinder you from attaining your DMP? The last step in defining your DMP is to write out the date that you intend to achieve it, emotionalize it, state it in the present tense (as if its already happened) and be specific.
