Point blank: If your goals aren’t written down, you don’t have any goals!
If you aim at nothing you hit nothing every time.
The person that doesn’t have their goals written down is basically aiming at nothing. Just saying it to yourself doesn’t cut it.
I don’t want to get too deep into the study of the human mind and all of that psycho analysis. If I thought real hard I could probably regurgitate a few big words from some books that I read on this subject. I think it boils down to the fact that writing down your goals makes them more real. Actually seeing “I make 10,000 dollars per month” written down on a piece of paper triggers something in the subconscious mind and makes your body perform the actions necessary to go do it. I guess it’s like when your elementary school teacher made your write 100 times, ‘I will not talk in class’. Was I the only kid that cheated and wrote each word in columns?
Check out the quick video I made on this topic while having fun with my new HP laptop. Oh and peep the cameo by my supremely handsome and extremely buffed special guest.
What’s up folks? Before you say anything, cut me some slack; this is only my 2nd video. Carlton was bold and took the lead on video production. His YouTube prowess has been the most integral part of our success. But I wanted to take a quick minute and reflect on what this past year has been like. I hope you enjoy it.
Be Do Have Marketing is a home based business consulting company run by my brother Carlton and I. We were born and raised in Richmond Virginia. I currently reside in the Washington DC area and Carlton still lives in Richmond.
After high school I attended several colleges before finally getting a bachelors in Management and Information systems from Strayer University. Carlton attended Johnson and Wales University and got a degree in culinary arts and hotel & restaurant management. About 15 years ago we were introduced to the network marketing and home based business industry. At that time we both had mastered the fine art of trading time for money and paying bills on time – most of the time. We found the concept of being our own bosses, controlling our own destinies and unlimited income potential very appealing. We quickly learned that MLM companies don’t pay you just for signing up. Starter kits do not come equipped with eager front line distributors begging to join your business. With that being said, our initial foray into this game was actually quite pleasant. We had moderate success, experienced some personal growth, met some wonderful people and were fortunate to be mentored by some of the sharpest minds in the industry. We never made that elusive $10,000 per month, but unlike other first timers, we fell in love with the industry and saw it as our ticket to freedom.
“A man’s mind expanded by new ideas will never go back to its original dimensions.”
Years passed, we got involved with a few different opportunities – we continued to meet wonderful people, built great relationships and had great mentors – but we never made any serious money. We decided to stop sponsoring each other and one of us getting a 100.00 bonus off the other and become a team for any future opportunities.
We were first introduced to the Be Do Have paradigm by one of our first mentors. We noticed that most of the top producers had this certain zeal; they had this unwavering air of confidence. They always dressed nice and drove nice cars. We would say to ourselves, “Yeah after we make this money we can walk with that same swagger and get those same nice suits and cars.” In one of the greatest ‘Ah-Ha’ moments of all time, we realized that the swagger had to come first. Then you had to do the work!!! This industry is not for the faint of heart. If you’re afraid of hard work you may want to leave this page and search on entertainment. We realized that only then could you have all of the things we dreamed of and felt we deserved. We became obsessed with our success.
Relationships that we built in previous companies have paid off and blessed us with technological advances; that when partnered with our knowledge and thirst for success have created a perfect storm. It’s all coming together at the perfect time and we couldn’t be more excited. For the first time we truly see a path ahead of us to riches. W-2′s are a distant memory.
