~~After listening to many, many leaders in Empower Network this week and last week as well, I am coming to realize that these individuals are really not that different from me at all. The only difference is that they have tapped into their "inner guru" and taken action ... but not just action. They have changed their mindset to suit their financial goals. Like Dave Wood said, it was when he realized that there are people out there with money and, perhaps unknowingly at that moment, discovered that it is just as easy to sell a 5 dollar program many levels down as it is to sell high-ticket products at 500.00 to 3500.00. Better yet, again, realizing that there are people out there with money who see the value in the products, it is no coincidence that Empower Network has grossed 70 million in the last 24 months.
Too many play too safe with no risk; isn't it possible to take risk in your mind without opening your wallet? Do we dare to dream? Not many do. Too many are either playing lottery ticket-mentality marketing or refuse to dream at all and stay at safe levels of risk, sheltering themselves, from themselves.
The dare-to-dream lottery-ticket mentality lives in the subconscious mind and is working daily to shape your dreams, your goals, and your actions. Every day, we need to dream big, think big, and not get stuck in a rut of - I can't do this; I don't have enough money; I am not going to get any sign-ups; this is a waste of time. Re-shaping how you think and the kinds of thoughts you let go through your mind will change you into a 4-figure learner, a 5-figure learner, a 6-figure learner, and a 7-figure learner.
Instead of finding ways to delay your success, growth, and development, why not think 'how can I.' Repeat that one in your mind 100 times a day and see how easy and undaunting the thought of making money online gets.
Making money online! You need to start from what you have .. NOT WHAT YOU THINK YOU SHOULD AND DON'T!
You should dare to dream, and escape from the negative, just long enough to imagine yourself there, starting at a good 4-figure a month residual income. Give yourself an ounce of financial freedom, even quietly in your own mind's thoughts.
Without understanding this very simple technique, I see many looking at every shiny little program that exists on the net, looking to it to market itself, funnel itself, and pay, pay, pay!
This brings to me a very deep, much deeper understanding of the Daves' mission with EN, to empower people, and to empower people to be themselves, essentially tapping into one's inner guru.
In our webinar, Aaron Raskin said one thing that really will always stand out in my mind and, as I feel my financial landscape change from a barren to lush, especially when thinking of money as an idea, as he mentioned, but did not have time to go into detail, his very words shape me: Forget being a 7-figure income earner, but become a 7-figure income LEARNER.
Chris Record's words also echo in my mind, when he said he asked himself over and over again, how can I, how can I, how can I.
In the learning curve, somewhere, I think people get confused, overwhelmed, but never take a step back to take a breather. That is why I think is it especially VALUEABLE to belong to a community with a vision of passion, compassion, support, tools, and training, just how Dave Wood describes EN, a community .. we all belong .. we stay plugged in daily ... we get strong, grow, evolve, change, create, and earn ... we are one big team fighting the "forces of evil."
