I’m getting ready to leave (in 2 days) on a cruise (all expenses paid!) that my company is sending me on. I’m so excited… and a little nervous, of course, because I’ll be w/out kids for 8 days (that’s a first)… what will I do w/ myself?? 🙂
Amidst all of the packing and preparing things for my departure, I watched this incredible video last night… and I’m SO GLAD I did! It’s a video of an interview w/ Loral Langemeier (one of the stars of ‘The Secret’, author of ‘Cash Machine’ and many other books about $).
In the video, she talks about lots of things that are so relevant to what we’re up to in this industry. For example, she talks about playing to win instead of playing not to lose. She addresses the fact, for example, that so many people in our industry are out in the world w/out order forms handy… mostly because they’re afraid to close the sale… they’re playing ‘not to lose’ instead of playing to win.
She also talks about how we are financially rewarded in direct proportion to the service we render. I love this… and it’s so true. What we’re up to here is making a profound difference for people… and we actually get rewarded for being of service to people. What could be better? So rather than making it all about you and how much money you’re going to make, make it be about who you can help w/ your incredible products that have the ability to positively impact someone’s life, or w/ your business opportunity that has the ability to turn someone’s financial future around. Put yourself in THEIR shoes, and stop worrying about what’s in it for you. The more you do this, the less you’ll need to worry about you because you’ll be rewarded so generously for your service that you will be completely taken care of. Try it…
Another thing she recommends is to ‘Say yes and figure out how’. So many people, in the face of an incredible opportunity say ‘maybe’ and never end up moving forward w/ it. Saying yes to opportunities that come into your sphere is a great way to live, and wonderful way to transform your life and your future.
In this video, Loral also talks about creating your “I am”. Think about who you are, who you want to be during your lifetime. Then fill in the blank: I am _______. For example, “I am wealth”, “I am prosperity”, etc. Then start to think it (rather than thinking all of those limiting beliefs about yourself), speak it, act on it, and receive it. It’s your to be received, and once you stop counteracting your positive thoughts w/all of the negative or limiting ones, you WILL receive it.
Ultimately it all comes down to your commitment… what do you really want? Once you’re clear about that, you just need to get out there and make it happen. If you’re not sure how to do that, find someone who’s already successful and learn from them.
Anyway, I’m so glad I took the time out of my busy schedule to watch this video. I learned a ton and it helped to remind me about a lot of things I already knew. And I’m extra pumped up for my trip now… taking all of this great information and inspiration w/ me… and I’m definitely playing to win!
