Two frogs....

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them
fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit
was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The
two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit
with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop,
that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took
heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down
and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again,
the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He
jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the
other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to
them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the
entire time.

This story teaches two lessons:

1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging
word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it
through the day.

2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes
to kill them.

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your
path. The power of words... it is sometimes hard to understand
that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak
words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in
difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time
to encourage another.

   I posted this short story for the purpose of 1) its so very true. Words can be very powerful, both in a positive or negative manner. 2) Many people view home based business as a cope out, scam, looking for an easy way out.
   Well, i'm not here to dispute the scam part of this industry. Because they sure are out there. But with the proper contacts and good research, those can be avoided.

What I feel this story represents is......

   If you have a GREAT reason why you want to work from home. ( Children, extra income because of tough times, building your nest eggs, etc.,) you will find a way to see that the possibilities to generate that income online is enormous.

   When it becomes ONLY about the money, then you start to do things just to make a buck. You can see it all over. But in this industry..... it does take time. It takes time for people to see who you really are. Do you bring something to the table that others can relate to.

   So, if you are one of those people that have been thinking about working online, home based business, internet marketing and/or MLM. There are great companies/businesses and opportunities out there. Figure out what you really after. Because real people, in real online businesses make a honest living despite what others may say. Who are you listening to? And where are you getting your info?



Be a Sales Superstar
by Brian Tracy 

   This is a wonderful time to be alive and working in the profession of selling. Regardless of the ups and downs of the economy or temporary changes in your industry, there have never been more opportunities for you to achieve more of your goals—and enjoy a higher standard of living—than exist today by selling more of your products and services in the marketplace.

Commit to Excellence
  Ambitious people have one remarkable characteristic in sales. They dream big dreams. They have high aspirations. They see themselves as capable of being the best in their fields. They know that the top 20 percent of salespeople make 80 percent of the sales, and they are determined to be among that top group.

Act As If It Were Impossible to Fail
  Fear, uncertainty, and doubt are, and always have been, the greatest enemies of success and happiness. For this reason, top salespeople work continually to confront the fears that hold most salespeople back. The two major fears that stand as the greatest obstacle on your road to success are the fear of failure, or loss, and the fear of criticism, or rejection. These are the major enemies to be overcome.

Put Your Whole Heart into Your Selling
   Selling has often been called a transfer of enthusiasm. The more enthusiastic and convinced you are about what you are selling, the more contagious this enthusiasm will be and the more your customers will sense it and act on it. Human beings are primarily emotional in everything they so and say. This is why caring is a critical element in successful selling.


Position Yourself as a Real Professional 
 Top salespeople see themselves as consultants rather than salespeople. They see themselves as advisors, helpers, counselors, and friends to their clients and customers. They see themselves as problem solvers more than anything else.

Dedicate Yourself to Continuous Learning 
 To earn more, you must learn more. You are "maxed out" today at your current level of knowledge and skill. You cannot get more or better results by simply working harder using your present abilities. If you want to earn more in the future, you must learn and apply new methods and techniques. Remember the old saying: "The more you do of what you're doing, the more you'll get of what you're getting."

Action Exercise 
 Develop an action plan for personal and professional development. Prepare a "training schedule" for yourself exactly as if you were training for a marathon or a big competition.
