How you can Reach Happiness in the Next 10 Minutes without drugs. What are Goals? Be careful, reading this whole article could change the way that you view your life and make you happier. I know, I know this is a huge claim. The good thing is that it i not about me changing you it is about you changing you. I am sure that someone like you already knows that people that write their goals down are much more likely to reach them than those that don’t. My question is “ Is life all about reaching your goals?” ,“Will reaching your goals make you happy? Is there a way to reach your goals and reach happiness and success at the same time? My answer to the last question is obviously a resounding -yes! It requires you to change your thinking, have a plan and some ground rules. Let me explain. I’ve worked with dozens of people on goals. That is one of the fundamentals of network marketing. Writing your goals, and figuring your reasons why.

Imagine if you are working two hours with someone on really digging and finding what their goals are, writing them down, creating an action plan, really digging to find a why and 3 month later there is really no change. It is frustrating. I have done it myself. It is what prompted me to write this article. I want to find a better way. I think I have. It has been working for me. So I will give it to you free of charge.

So what are the beliefs that will help you reach happiness in the next Ten Minutes.

  1. It is a life process- Goals and goal setting is a life process not an event. It should be a way for you to reflect on your purpose and your why. It is a way to measure , monitor and adjust what you want from your dash. On your tomb stone there usually will be a birth date and a death date. In between the two there is a dash. You have no control of your birth and really no control of your death. What will you do with that dash? That is what regular reflections on your journey will help you focus on.
  2. Focus on the fun of life as much as possible. Life is a series of ups, plateaus, and downs. It’s more like a stock chart than a straight line. Is your life stock going up, is it staying the same or going down? If you can just accept that fact then you can immunize yourself (another article on this concept- check out the link on the authors box) and emphasize the positive to the maximum, minimize the negative to almost non existence and work through the flat points in your life. You can live life happy.
  3. Make life a whole body experience- When the positive things happen in your life take them in and enjoy every single moment. Enjoy the sound, the taste, the colors, the feeling. Make the positive moments memorable, make them last. Make the negatives role of your back. Like if you were coated with Teflon. I will expand on how to use this to your advantage on my next article. You need to use this for your motivation.
  4. Life is an adventure- life on this earth is short. I know that some will argue with me on this point. But I believe that those that want a relationship with the one true God will experience eternal life, those that don’t will cease to exist. It is not a chosen few, it is based on your acceptance of God’s plan and your relationship with him. Only you and God will know that. I am not making any judgments as I am not qualified to do so. Some people are so unhappy here that the thought of eternity is boring. I believe we will have a chance to explore, seek, and learn.
  5. There are no failures- the only people who fail are those that just quit or don’t even try. Someone commented on a post I placed in facebook with this quote. -As Peter LaFleur would say, “I found that if you have a goal, you might not reach it. But if you don’t have one, then you are never disappointed.”  As clever as the statement is, it is false. The world is full of people that don’t have goals and are very disappointed. Setting goals has nothing to do with disappointment. It is the meaning you place behind not accomplishing the goal that brings the disappointment. The people that beat themselves up for not accomplishing their goals have a loser mentality. That mentality will leave many scars that will prevent future success.
  6. It is all about balance- many people that are seemingly successful by worldly standards are very unhappy. Because so many people struggle financially people equate the amazing of wealth as the ultimate success. Even tough we say money is not everything subconsciously that is the first thing we are drawn to when measuring success. In our heads if we could just have the toys, financial success, adventures then our life would be successful. When messuring other peoples success we do the same. What car do they drive? What vacations do they take? What house do they live in?
  7. Cease the moments- Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today. I am not saying that you should be irresponsible but that you should always be measuring everything that you do with your ultimate plan.

So what are goals? Are goals just meaningless accomplishments or the way to truly be happy? Now that you have read the whole article I want to help you experience your life to the fullest. After all that is my mission. So on my next article I will go over how to design goals that will truly guide and motivate change. What are your thoughts?

Are you Struggling? Are you Coachable?

Are you Struggling? Are you Coachable? I started the article thinking that I was going to just give you a couple of pointers on network marketing but it ended up being an article on how to be coachable. If you are contemplating being a network marketing professional or have been around for a while but don’t seem to go anywhere this is a very important subject. Because Network Marketing is different than most traditional businesses.  One of the most valuable assets in network marketing is the build in coaching system. People in network marketing unlike most traditional businesses,  are willing to help you build your business. All for little to no cost to you. They usually get rewarded when you do well. But even tough this is true don’t be afraid to outgrow your coaches and even pay for coaching. Do you think Butch Harmon didn’t charge Tiger Woods.


Here are some points about being coachable.

1. Not everyone is coachable and you can’t force someone to be coachable. Coachability comes from within the person. It comes from the ability to listen to someone else advice.

“Never will I allow myself to become so important, so wise, so dignified, so powerful,that I forget how to laugh at myself and my world. In this matter I will always remainas a child, for only as a child am I given the ability to look up to others; and so longas I look up to another I will never grow too long for my cot.” -Og Mandino

Don’t try to make someone coachable either they are ready or they are not.

2. Be coachable yourself-  To be coachable you need to be able to take advice because you know and understand that you are not all knowing . You make mistakes just like anyone else.

3. As a coachable person you know that it is just a fact that not all advice is good but you should be able to take the advice, evaluate it’s usefulness objectively and follow if necessary. Many people that are uncoachable will take in the information and dismiss it without consideration. Sometimes while talking to distributors I can see that they are hearing me but not listening . They have no intention to follow the advice.

4. This does not mean that you need to follow everything that your sponsor tells you. It means that you should follow your companies business plan and find someone that can mentor you. That might be your sponsor but it might not. Find someone that is on the next stage of your development and ask them for help. You need to be willing to listen and follow advice (did I already say that- repetition).

5. Don’t waste your coaches time when you make an appointment be there rain, snow or sleet, show up. Don’t self sabotage

6. Network Marketing is different than most traditional businesses, be willing to try new things. The role of your coach is to guide you to success. Sometimes we know what the road to success is but we do not do the things necessary to get there. So when a coach gives you an assignment and you don’t finish it or don’t do it at all you need to find out “why”. Be open to self discovery. It might just change your life.

7. Committed to change- many times you can be caochable just because you want to change. You are sick and tired of being in the same situation all the time. But if you are not open to change you will not be coachable.

8. Open to information about themselves- to be coachable you need to be able to take criticism and appreciate new perspectives.

9. A coach does not have to be more talented than you. They just have to be able to guide you. Just take a look at Tiger Woods or any great athlete.

Find someone you respect within your industry. Someone that either has gone trough what you are going through and made it successfully to the other side or has helped others do it. Sometimes finding someone that is just above the level that you want to be is better than finding someone that is light years ahead. The person just above you can hoist you up and then you can move on to the next level maybe taking them with you. Don’t be afraid of finding someone that has just done what you want to do. You probably can get more from them than a guru who has no time for you. You can always outgrow your coach or mentor.
