I’ve been thinking about you over the last little bit and I really wanted to share something that will help your life and business in a BIG way.
When I first got started marketing online, I learned a very valuable lesson from one of the industry pros.
Rather than try to retell the story in my own words, I’m going to quote to you exactly what she said to me early on.
Here it is…
The one thing I want to encourage you to do
above all else is to continue to educate yourself.
If you aren’t of this mindset, you will never
be able to be successful long-term.
To really make the kind of money that can set
you free, you’ve got to acquire an insatiable
appetite for anything and everything having to
do with sales, leadership, marketing and business
There’s an oft-told story I’d like to repeat to
A number of years ago two men came here from
There are thousands of people who risk their
lives on tiny little crafts to make it to America
every year, but let’s just focus on two of them.
They both arrived here on the same day, a new
life in front of them.
One of them was a dishwasher who worked at a
hotel in Havana. He somehow managed to steal
$500,000 from the guests who stayed at that hotel
and make it ashore with all that cash on him.
The other one barely made it alive on an inner
tube with absolutely nothing but the tattered
clothes on his back. Not a single penny. But
this guy was a brain surgeon in Cuba. One of the
best, in fact.
Now imagine 5 years have gone by.
Where’s the dishwasher? The one who came here
Most likely he’s broke and living on the streets.
Or perhaps in jail. Maybe even dead.
You see when he got here, he probably carelessly
spent all his money on luxury cars, houses,
drugs, partying and other impractical things.
Once he ran out, the only skill he had to make
more money with was washing dishes. But after
having a taste of “the good life,” there was no
way he could go back to doing that. So he
probably turned to crime and eventually wound
up living in a 6 x 6 cell.
The other guy – the one who came here with
“nothing” – has a great house in an upscale
neighborhood, a wonderful family, a nice car and
in general, a very prosperous life.
Because he came here with the only real wealth,
the only true financial security there is in
…the kind that’s between your ears!
And no matter how broke he temporarily was, he
would always be able to pull himself out of that
You can do the same if you acquire skills that
are highly valuable. And as we’ve discovered,
there are no skills more valuable than those of
sales and marketing!
What’s more, the educational process never stops.
It doesn’t end after a certain benchmark or after
your downline has reached a certain size.
Successful people NEVER stop learning. They are
always on a quest to grow and develop themselves.
This is something that can only come from within.
No one can force feed it to you.
As Jim Rohn said –
“Formal education will make you a living; self-
education will make you a fortune.”
The amount of money the world will be willing
to pay you is directly proportionate to the
knowledge you have and your ability to put that
knowledge into useful action. The more you develop
yourself, the more you are worth.
Often times, people who’s thinking is stuck in
the “E” quadrant have a hard time understanding
If you’ve read Robert Kiyosaki, you’re familiar
with the four different quadrants and what
separates the people in these quadrants.
Robert talks about how the main difference
between someone in the “E” (employee) quadrant
and someone in the “B” (business) quadrant is
simply how they think. And you can almost always
tell right away what quadrant someone is in by
the words they use.
I just paid $300 for a book called “The 12
Most people would think this is nuts.
What they don’t understand is that this
information, in the hands of the right person
who actually puts it to use, is worth 100 times
– 1,000 times – more than it’s actual cost.
See, when you make investments like this into
your own knowledge, don’t think about the cost
– concentrate on the VALUE.
Just briefly skimming through this book I
already picked up a handful of tips I can put
to use immediately that will make me a lot more
money this year. And I haven’t even read the
whole thing yet.
And once I’ve downloaded this info into my brain,
it’s there forever. No one can ever take it away
from me. I’ll never lose it if a phony real
estate bubble bursts or if the stock market
crashes. I’ll always have it and be able to use
it again. Even if I someday lose everything and
don’t have a dollar to my name.
Just like the man who came here from Cuba.
So again, thank you and congratulations on
taking the time to invest in yourself.
To Your Success,
Is that an incredible lesson or what? If you did not get the full impact of what she said… PLEASE…. READ IT AGAIN!
Some people don’t understand this vital principle.
They want to shortchange success. They want to get all the money and the stuff without becoming who they need to become in the process.
Don’t be that person my friend. Be the person that understands your greatest asset (YOU), and don’t be afraid to invest in yourself.
I personally spent $10,000 CASH for the chance to spend 1 week with millionaire real estate investors a short time ago.
My family enjoys a nice degree of financial freedom with the help of residual income we get from some of our real estate holdings.
Do you think the average person would have dropped 10 grand on the real estate school?
Maybe that’s why average people tend to stay average, live an average life, achieve average goals, and have average lifestyles.
Don’t get me wrong… it’s not about the stuff.
It’s about becoming the best you can be and enhancing lives while you travel your best journey.
Don’t they say that “a rising tide lifts all ships”?
Please my friend, be that rising tide.
The world needs you.
Never before has there been such a need for people that are willing to lift themselves up.
Did you know that the bible contains a very special line … “my cup runneth over”?
Think about that for a minute.
Why is it important to fill your cup so full that “it runneth over”?
Is it because we need to gather up all the resources we can and horde them to ourselves?
I don’t think so.
I think it’s because in order to help someone who is dying of thirst, we have to first have something in our cups to spare.
Don’t lift yourself up for the sake of being prideful.
Don’t lift yourself up just for the money.
Be all you can be because there are people all around you that need someone to look up to.
There are people all around you that need to know there is more to this life than being average and ordinary.
You my friend, can be that special gift for so many people, but you can only do it if you realize you need to invest in yourself and do what it takes to become the leader you are meant to be.
Let’s live abundant lives together, shall we?
You’re partner in success,
