How Patient Are You With Your Growth?

“Growth and the sun have the same thing in common-they both may be slow, but the end result is a beautiful sight to see.” -Michael J. Fite Keep this in mind whenever you are trying to figure out why you have not progressed or grown when it comes to the things you are aspiring for and wanting to be in life. When you rush the growth, you wind up sabotaging the process and may either force things sooner than expected or kill the momentum that you had already built up. This will leave you feeling angry and mad at the world for something that you truly had control over. When you allow for the growth to take place, things will fall into place and you will see people and things come into your life when they are supposed to come. One characteristic all people can agree on about me is that I am slow and methodical. I remembered back in

How Can You “Make It” When Everyone Else Is Failing?

Alexander the Great. Universally considered one of the world’s greatest leaders. He lived over 2,000 years ago, and in his short life (he died at 32) he conquered over 2,000,000 square miles of land. At one point in his conquests, he entered a city. In this city, there was a famous oxcart. The cart was tied to a big pole with an impossibly complex knot. Known as the “Gordian knot.” It had been prophesied that whoever could untie this knot would be the king of all Asia. Many had tried to untie the knot over the years. Everyone had failed. But Alexander was determined. After some careful thought, he took out his sword. He lifted it high, and brought it down on the knot… slicing it in half! And knot was undone. And later, he did indeed become the ruler of much of Asia. Just like it was prophesied. A simple solution to a complex problem. But are there always

Do You Succumb Or Overcome Your Fears?

“He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.” -Aristotle Keep this in mind when you faced with your fears and you are trying to figure out what to do. If you let your fears overrule your life, you will never try nor accomplish anything in your life. This can lead to you to have regrets about things and resentment towards people who achieve or talk you out of trying anything. If you learn to overcome your fears, you will realize that you can achieve anything that you put your mind to and try. This can lead you to have confidence in yourself and the strength to endure any obstacle that you can face. When I left for the military in 2006, I had two fears. The first fear was that I would not make it because I could not swim well. The second fear was that my wife was probably going to leave me because I left to

Are You Leveraging “The Power of Proof”?

Starting in 1969 McDonald’s restaurants began displaying the number of hamburgers sold on its “golden arches” signs. They would change the number every time another 5 billion mark was passed. “20 billion sold…25 billion sold…30 billion sold.” It’s probably no accident that this bold “proof” advertising happened simultaneously with McDonald’s most phenomenal period of growth. The 1970s. Who can argue with a number like “45 billion sold”, right? And for the on-the-go Americans of the 1970s, when fast service and convenience was of McDonald’s a “no brainer” decision. It practically made their on-the-road dining choice for them. Why not go where billions and billions have gone before? How can you possibly go wrong? And now they’ve sold so many burgers that the signs just say “Billions and Billions Sold.” That’s the importance of proof in marketing.   MTTB has been able to accomplish similar results in online marketing with over $20,000,000 in commissions.

Are You The Ant Or The Grasshopper?

“Never waste your time. Always be prepared for the days of necessity.” -Johora Papri Keep this in mind when you find yourself with free time on your hands. Every minute that you have is precious, so you want to use your time wisely for when tough times may come up. When you choose to waste you time, you waste money, opportunity, ideas, and a lot of other things that can be of benefit to you when such times come, but now they are not there because you wasted the chance to acquire them. In watching the video, The Ant and the Grasshopper, it reminds me of my wife and I. I do find myself as the ant who uses every minute to find ways to plan, acquire, and make things happen in anticipation for whatever life brings. My wife, the grasshopper, will take frequent breaks and do not feel the need of preparing and storing for anything. The beauty of

Are You The Passenger Or Driver Of Your Life?

“There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.” -Denis Waitley Keep this in mind when you are faced with situations that leave you with these two options. In choosing to accept conditions as they exist, you are allowing for other people and things to dictate what happens in your life while you take a passive and helpless stance. When you do that, you become a spectator to the point that you never know when you should step in to take control of your life. When you do accept your role as the person that must change the conditions, you go from allowing other people and things to take control of your life to you being the one that makes the moves and changes things in your life for the better. That will make you feel like the driver of your life versus being a passenger. I remember prior

Do You Take The Advice Of Your Fears Or Your Confidence?

“Do not take counsel of your fears.” -George S. Patton Keep this in mind when you are faced with how you are going to deal with your fears. As strong as your mind may be, if you take the advice of your fears, you will find yourself quitting and never trying anything new. When you choose to go against that same advice and listen to your confidence, you can overcome your fears and move towards accomplishing your goals and dreams. In moving out on my own for the first time with my wife, when we were dating at the time, I was presented with a situation that had me wondering. She had shared with me that she had quit her job and that the job she was hoping to get did not come through, which left her without any money to put towards the rent for the first month. As you can imagine, the inner fears were creeping in, and

Are You An Excuse Maker Or a Action Maker?

“If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.” -Unknown Keep this in mind whenever you are deciding how important something or someone may be to you to accomplish or have. When you find yourself not believing that you can or not wanting to do or try something, you will find an excuse that will get you out of it. The results for doing this is that you remaining in your comfort zone, never reaching your potential, and always wondering after the fact if maybe you missed your opportunity. When you find yourself valuing the thing or person that you want, you will look at every way possible to acquire what you need and actually do what it takes to get it.

How Do You Change Your Perspective And Watch The Money Flow In?

Someone tells you to come up with two unique products before tomorrow. Where do you turn? Probably the Internet. And if you are like most people you would jump on Reddit or Stumbleupon and try and sift through the never ending webs of the internet spending hours getting sidetracked by ads, pictures of cats, and that YouTube video you watched a month ago that you kind of want to watch again. And 10 minutes before you have to talk about your two new products you’re still trying to think of something or if you’re lucky second-guessing what you did come up with. People turn to the Internet for everything. News. Entertainment. Friends. Love. And the answer to any question is on the Internet.
