No Time, No Money

IN training with Robin Robins today, she went over Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. (Have you read it?) A forgotten point from the book:

You need Burning Desire to achieve anything. Wishes and Wants are not burning desire. Wishes and Wants are like dreams. They are intangible and do not get acted upon.

I have worked with over 65 companies and many SAY they want to increase revenue (and who would say that they didn't, right?), but when it came right down to it, they had no burning desire to do so.

The difference between a dream and a goal is ink and a date. Once you right down your dream and put a date next to it -- it's a goal. Now your mind will work on it.

One reason many people don't complete New Year's Resolutions and Wishes is because they would have to leave their comfort zone. That's right, they would have to change something. Most people do not like Change and don't like to operate in an uncomfortable environment, like the first day at a new school or first day of a new job. But most of the personal Growth happens under the light of discomfort.

Whenever I ask if people are going to a conference, I usually hear either "No time" or "No Money". Now if you make the conscious decision to not attend because of No Time or No Money, then you have actually made a decision to stay right where you are.

Think about that.

What got you here, will not get you there. Especially in our fast paced world.

When was the last time, you took a course, a seminar, a conference, or went to a networking event? How are you learning new things?

There's never going to be "The Perfect Time". But right now could actually be the right time.

Do you know what the difference is between Wealth and Broke?

Wealthy people invest in themselves, the most valuable thing they can invest in. Broke folks invest in things that go down in value like cars, TV, etc.

I have given out hours and hours of ideas and advice. The Ideas aren't any big deal. Implementation. Execution. Of even ONE idea is the road to success.

It's also about what you don't do.
