Robert Kiyosaki – 10 Tips on How to Become Wealthy

December 30th, 2009 No comments

robert kIt is a known fact, rich and successful people think differently than the average person.  There is a reason why they have accumulated wealth and have numerous successes they can lay claim to.  You have probably hear the phrase “money attracts money”.  It is not the money that attracts, it is the mindset of wealth that attracts money.

Robert Kiyosaki is a man that speaks his mind, especially when it comes to growing wealth.  You may like him, you may not, he really doesn’t care.  He does care about preaching the good news about how to acquire wealth.  Most successful and wealthy people have gone past the accumulation of wealth stage, they have it.  They have moved into the mindset of helping others do what they, themselves, have already done, for the betterment of all.

Robert is a self made man.  He didn’t graduate from an expensive college with a degree in finance.  He says he gained his knowledge of finance on the streets.  He is very open that he always wanted to be rich.  It was his life’s goal.  Did he want it because of the things he could buy, or because of the life he could lead?

He was lucky early in his life to have a wealthy and successful mentor that cared to pass his knowledge on to Robert.  That was his “rich dad”.  He says that his “rich dad” was only the beginning of his quest to find teachers and mentors that he could learn from.

My objective in presenting this 5 minute video is not to preach any investment strategy.  It is to put the spotlight on Robert’s attitude regarding wealth and success.  It is our attitudes and belief’s about success and money that dictate our income level.  Robert says you have to make a decision about which side of the fence you wish to reside, rich or poor, before you can become rich.  Have you made that decision?

If you feel this information has value, feel free to pass it around.

Here’s some links to Robert’s books.

Donald Trump – The Millionaire Inside – Part 2

December 29th, 2009 No comments

75px-DonaldTrumpFeb09Each of us have different “sets of skills”.  If we excel in our relationships, we have grown an above average set of skills in that area.  Sometimes, we have great relationships, but in the area of business we stink, or vice versus.  How can we learn the skills we need to succeed in business or relationships?

Here are a few tips:

1.  If we want to excel at something we first need to clarify what we desire.  Choose something we are passionate about.   Follow that clarity by setting effective goals.

2.  Learn everything about the subject in which you desire your success.  Study successful people.  Find out what they did to reach the success you desire.  Locate a mentor or coach who has had success in that arena.  Someone who is willing to work with you and give you honest feedback.

3.  Be persistent.  Most people give up right before they have success.  Don’t be one of those people.

I have a 9 minute video, part 2 of the Millionaire Inside.  Donald Trump talks about the skill set needed to succeed in business.  He gives 6 valuable tips he believes are important to success in the competitive field of business.  If you enjoy it, feel free to pass it on.

Bonus!  Here is a site to learn more about success.

Donald Trump – 10 Tips on How to Be A Success

December 22nd, 2009 4 comments

300px-TrumpDonald Trump is an amazing man.  In one of his first books he coined the phrase, “Think Big”.  His philosophy is, “if you’re going to be thinking any way, you might as well think big.”  The Donald knows how successful people think.  He was raised by a goal setting, business minded, passionate father who taught him  how to be successful.  What a great family tradition.  Shouldn’t we teach our children what it takes to win the game of life?

This 9 minute video has The Donald giving you 10 tips on how to become successful.  This is something that deserves to be played numerous times.  Feel free to pass it on.

Donald Trump – The Millionaire Inside

December 21st, 2009 No comments

donald-trumpWe are rapidly approaching a new year.  Most of us look at January 1st as a clean slate to fill in what we are wanting to accomplish in the coming year.  That is a healthy way to look at it, goals are the stepping stones to success.  But, how many of us are hauling around our old baggage from last year?  How would our lives be different if we could dump that old baggage of things that didn’t work, thoughts that don’t serve us, and the attitudes that don’t work?  What if we could use that knowledge of what doesn’t work and build on it to become the person we wish to be?  Could we find the millionaire inside us?

I admire Donald Trump.  I know some people would scoff at that for what ever reasons they have.  I admire him for many reasons, but one of the main reasons is he can rise above defeat and failure to be bigger and better than he was before.  He is a rags to riches, to rags to billions of dollars in riches, story.  It is not easy after a failure to get back up again and wade into the fight.  What is it about “the Donald” that gives him the tenacity to go from broke to billionaire in just a few short years?

Another reason that I like Donald Trump is that he tells it like it is.  I love that!  I am a “what you see is what you get” kind of person.  He doesn’t sugar coat what he believes.  Accept it or reject it, he really doesn’t care.

I have a 10 minute video for you, today, that will give you a “bird’s eye view” of how “the Donald” thinks.  He makes some very important points.  Feel free to leave me a comment and to pass the blog around!

Zig Ziglar – Attitude Makes the Difference

December 15th, 2009 2 comments

Zig ZiglarPeople are the funniest beings.  They get attached to the strangest things.  One of the oddest things I have seen people get attached to is “drama”.  Not the kind of drama performers use to play a part  in a dramatic roles, or people who enjoy watching drama on TV.  I mean the people that have the attitude of drama.  There is always drama in their life.  It doesn’t matter what day you see them, they have new tales of woe to dump on you.

If you know people like that, you will probably agree, they drain your positive energy.  I have acquaintances that I thank God I have caller ID.  That sounds harsh, doesn’t it?  But, if you want to be truthful, you have some of those same acquaintances.  They are the people that once they have you in their sights, you are going to hear all the negative, pessimistic things that are presently going on.  Believe me, we all have things that we might not find uplifting happening in our own lives.  Why do these people only focus on the negatives?

They enjoy the attention.  That’s it.  They believe they will get your undivided attention if they can rattle off all their bad stuff.  Some people don’t realize they are doing it.  They can be second or third generation complainers.  They are products of negative environments.  They really don’t want to be released from it either, because they are comfortable with it.  Every time we listen to them talk about their drama we are fueling their obsession.

There are two ways to handle this situation.  You can work on helping them see their drama for what it is, negative energy and lack of gratitude.  You can handle them the same way Zig Ziglar does in this video.  Or, if you can’t change the people around you, you can change the people around you and keep an eye on that caller ID.

This is a great 9 minute video about how attitude makes the difference.  Feel free to pass it on.  Here’s the link to some of his material that you can use to start your own “Automobile University“.  Nightingale Conant is having a 25% off Christmas Sale!

Tony Robbin – How to Develop Your Goals and Action Plan for 2010 – Part 2

December 14th, 2009 No comments

tony-robbins2The year 2010 is rapidly approaching.  As 2009 wanes, it is natural to become more reflective about what we did or didn’t accomplish.  It is a time to review and revise our goals for that jump start into 2010.  It is a time to sit down in front of that blank piece of paper and catalogue our accomplishments and to be honest about those things that could have gone better.  It is not a time to beat up on ourselves for self proclaimed “failures”.  That would be self defeating.  We can use failure as a great way to correct our course of action. A quote from Winston Churchill comes to mind, “success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

As we reflect on our present year and revise our game plan for 2010, it is important to launch our revised plan of action immediately.  We loose momentum by waiting any length of time to start the revised plan.    It is imperative to take the first step of implementation, now.  Why?   Because, the power is in the now.   The first step is the hardest.  It is like trying to push a stalled car.  It takes a tremendous amount of energy to get the 2000 lbs auto to budge. We push and push until we finally start to get some forward movement.  If we keep the energy focused on pushing the car, we will soon find ourselves racing to keep up with the rapidly moving vehicle.  That is the power of momentum!

Today’s video is part 2 of Tony Robbins “The Power of Momentum”.  This 5 minute video will give you some insight on moving forward with strength.  If you like it, pass it on.

Tony Robbins – How to Develop your Goals & Action Plan for 2010

December 13th, 2009 3 comments

Tony RobbinsWe are in the throes of a very busy holiday season.  Most of us are busy individuals, without the extra hustle and bustle of Christmas.  Before we know it, the new year, 2010, will be here.  Have you had an opportunity to sit down and decide what your 2010 is going to look  like, in all areas of your life?  Most of us will say “no”, I haven’t found the time to do that. To be honest with you, you will never “find” the time for developing your goals and action plan.  You will have to “make” the time for this important goal setting endeavor.

Making our famous New Years resolutions doesn’t hinge on something magical happening at the first of the year that helps us keep them, or break them.  Starting a new year with goals and an action plan is like looking out at a new field of snow, crisp and clean, where no one has walked before, and blazing your trail through it to what you want.  A clean slate, so to speak.  The magic happens any time we make compelling goals, develop a plan with lasting results that work, and take action on them!  This can be done any time of the year.  If it is done correctly, that’s when the magic happens, because as Tony Robbins would say, “Where focus goes, energy flows”.

I have a 7 minute video from Tony Robbins that I really enjoyed.  I plan to make some time in my busy schedule before January 1, 2010 to find out what I did in 2009 that worked and what didn’t work.  I want to have my goals for 2010 planned and ready to go to launch my best year ever!  I encourage you to do so, also.

Enjoy the video.  Feel free to share it with your network of family, friends and business associates!  Let’s all rock in 2010.  The world will be a better place for it.
