Struggling with Lack of Work Life Balance?

I practiced medicine for nearly 12 years and had zero work-life balance. Nearly two decades ago I made a choice to create my life and have been assisting physicians and others to do the same ever since.  From this 3 min clip of Sir Richard Branson;

“With modern communications one shouldn’t have to be stuck in an office”

We all have the same 24 hours per day. So why is it Sir Richard can own 400+ companies and so many others plug away in a cubicle?

Maybe there’s a clue in this three minute clip;

Monday Morning Quarterback

monday morning

Wow! What a game! And now it’s Monday Morning. Time for the Monday Morning Quarterbacks to muse and pontificate on what coulda-shoulda-woulda happened if only…

The actual quarterbacks, coaches, players, refs, and people who were in the stands and people who viewed the game on TV will argue what happened in the game less than 24 hours ago. They all watched the same game…from their perspective and thru their emotional and mental filters.

Additionally, any number of “experts” will be on sports shows today – all too happy to tell you what occurred on the playing field based upon their filters and resulting perceptions.

The game is over. So is your past. The results cannot be changed and the very best thing about the past is that it’s over. And what’s really superb is that when it comes to your past you can’t prove that your past happened the way YOU remember it.   Because if we had a time machine and traveled back to the pivotal events of this past year, or any point in your life; and we interviewed others who were present – there would be an extremely high probability that they would remember those same events very differently.   Just like those arguing about yesterday’s game.

Additionally, we all have had the experience where a seemingly terrible event turned out to be the very best thing for us.   One lesson here and there is to look for the seed of good in every “awful” experience as it’s happening – because the second lesson here and there is that every experience has served us, or continues to serve us on some level, for some purpose.

In conclusion, it is a fact that the glass is always completely full of two liquids and there are always three sides to every story; His, Hers and the Truth – which usually lies somewhere in between. Human beings filter ALL of the data input through our own experiences and ultimately choose our own perceptions. So why not choose to interpret all the data input in a way that supports and empowers you TO BE magnificent, to improve your life, your family’s life and your community?

Because you can. And what if you were to? What if you did? Who could you help?

How great would that be?

Wednesday Morning Quarterbacking

Today – a lot of people will claim we’ve “won”. The rest will have 4 years to say; “that’s why I didn’t vote for…” (a version of the Blame game)

Today the quarterback, coaches, players, refs, people who were in the stands and people who viewed the “game” on TV will argue what happened in the game.   They all watched the same game…from their perspective and thru their emotional and mental filters.   Additionally, any number of “experts” will be happy to tell you what occurred on the playing field….based upon their filters and resulting perceptions.

In fact, the glass is always completely full of two liquids and there are always three sides to every story; His, Hers and the Truth – which usually lies somewhere in between. Human beings filter ALL of the data input through our own experiences and ultimately choose our own perceptions.

So why not choose to interpret all the data in a way that supports and empowers you to BE magnificent, to improve your life, your family’s life and your community?

The only person you can rely on to really secure your future is YOU…and here’s how you can take control – Entrepreneurship!

Are you the Dreaded “Ask-Hole”?

askhole

Remember, the fastest way to learn something new is to find a person who has already accomplished what you’re seeking to accomplish. When I started this business I sought to be mentored by a person who was making mid six figures per month.

In the beginning I did EVERYTHING I was told to do – without question – and my business grew so fast I decided to put my practices up for sale.

Once they were sold, I started to question my decision. I also began to question EVERYTHING. I began to think – I “NEED” to know everything about everything. I began to question the product ingredients, the science, the company, the business strategy, the techniques, the scripts, the emails, my mentors and mySelf.

I called my coaches everyday, probably a hundred times per day. (OK maybe not a hundred…at least several). I went to their homes and sat next to them for hours and hours and hours – watching, listening, learning – and rarely applying. I was the dreaded “Ask-Hole”.

 Finally, judgement day came. My coaches called me to the carpet. Bill – your business is shrinking. You’re not DOING the business. You’re simply Anal-yzing it and you’re Failing  Your questions are legitimate. At some future point they’re going to be important things to know. They’re good questions – and here’s one for you; “Are you wanting to get another degree – or are you seeking to learn a new business and achieve your dreams, goals and more?

Here’s what they said next; “From this day forward here’s what we’re going to DO. For every 10 people you talk to – we’ll answer one question. Is that fair?”

My answer a meek, weak – Uh – Yes.

They continued on; Because we learn this business by DOING this business. Learning this business is like learning to swim, dance, ride a bike, or drive a car – you don’t read a bunch of books to learn those things. You learn because of your WHY. You learn to swim so you can breath and live, you learn to dance so you can get the guy/girl, you learn to ride a bike or drive a car for the FREEDOM.

Once I returned to DOING what my mentors told me to DO – even though it wasn’t “comfortable” my business began to grow.

More on “comfortable” tomorrow.

Sir Richard Branson on NetWORK Marketing

Nearly 50% of Americans couldn’t afford a $400 emergency situation and nearly 65% couldn’t afford a $1000. emergency. That’s one damaged tire or the lost of a smartphone.

This is just one of the reasons mentioned as to WHY a smart individual would consider developing another stream of income using netWORK marketing as a vehicle..
