You are Capable of More Than You Know

This might feel a little like I have been talking to one of the little guys that lives on your shoulder.

You know the one I am talking about. The one that does such a great job of pointing out your short-comings. The one that whispers to you that you aren’t good enough. The one that tells you that if you could just be like other people that you admire that you would be able to do better.

I know this guy really well. This guy ran my life for a long time. He made sure I was constantly reminded how I couldn’t succeed because I was too shy, and I didn’t have any money, and people like me don’t succeed, and….

And I bought it. For a long time. And guess where that guy had me going? Yup…Nowhere. I was being pathetic. There I said it. I was being pathetic. No shame in admitting that. That’s just the truth that described me for the first half of my life.

It Was at That Point That I Decided to Start Listening to the Guy on the Other Shoulder.

That other guy said “hey hey hey, hold on a minute. Don’t believe that guy. You’ve got lots of good qualities. You just have to stop buying his excuses and start working at something, and working on something, namely yourself!” And then I started to discover I was capable of a lot more than I gave myself credit for.

I’m not going to tell you my trajectory to success was a straight up rocket. It wasn’t. I’m not going to tell you that I didn’t make lots of mistakes, and fall down a lot. I did. I am going to tell you, that my life has been a whole lot better listening to the other guy and testing the bounds of my capabilities. And yours will be too.

You are going to have struggles and challenges either way in life. Sitting on your butt and making excuses by blaming what you are not and by pointing to your overwhelming circumstances is going to mean a life of struggles. Going for your dreams and choosing to see what you are capable of is going to have plenty of struggle to it too. The reality of it is…

The Struggle You Face to Grow Yourself and Pursue Your Dreams is The Way to Live an Exciting and Good Life.

This is why I have such a heart to help everyday people reach their dreams. I know what it’s like, and what it takes, to rise up. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, even if I have never met you, that you are capable of so much more than you know. You’ve just got to decide to go for it.

In this video I share a lot more on this topic and I’m pretty sure it will help you out!

Make Sure You Communicate This Key Thing to Your Prospects

There is a tendency to think (especially if you’re new) that you have to know all the ins and outs of your product/service/compensation plan (and you can add whatever else you want that I missed) before you can really talk to someone about it. Nothing could be further than the truth!!! You actually need to […]

A Really Important Thing to Remember as You are Building Your Business

It’s been my experience in my personal life and in coaching and mentoring others, that there is a huge tendency to build monuments to our mistakes and failures. Do you know what I mean? We replay stuff over and over in our head that went wrong. We re-experience the negative event in our mind…over time making […]

What Would Happen in Your Life if You Decided to Play Bigger?

A few months ago I was sitting in a conference, trying to get a handle on what was bothering me. I had been struggling emotionally for a while. Kind of like a dark period. Emotional struggle is not new for me. My wiring  is such that I am prone to ups and downs and I go to great lengths everyday to center myself […]

How to Make Success Inevitable

What do you notice more? The people are who are saying yes or the people who are saying no? I had a discussion recently with a man who was sharing how it seemed that everyone he was talking to was saying no in some way. No one was interested. Everyone was telling him the usual […]

Never Do THIS to a Prospect

One of the things I appreciate most about legendary Network Marketing trainer Eric Worre is that he advocates “Going Pro.” If you are not familiar with this, it’s pretty simple. He means being a professional. For a long time, network marketing was not perceived, even by the people in the business, as a profession. But […]

How to Have More People See Your Presentation

Creating success in home business is not a mystery. Provided you are treating people with kindness and respect (and are bringing something of value for them) it is simply a function of consistently having people see your presentation. So what IS a presentation? It’s where the information is provided for the prospect to evaluate whether or not […]
