Becoming a world changer starts with making a decision
to make a difference. It's having a contributor's
mindset. That means knowing that people will find value
in whatever you have to offer them.
An abundance mindset would be another name for a
contributor's mindset. Its a mindset that knows wealth
can surely be created from ideas and from actions.
There's no limit to how far one can go in life. The
only limitations are the ones we impose upon ourselves.
This is why it is so critical to offer things of value
to others. The old say is true "the more you help others
get what they want, the more you'll get the thing you
want". This philosophy creates a mindset of fairness.
Fairness is much more intelligent than greed or self-
sacrifice. This is why Mentoring For Free is so
effective in reaching so many people. it definitely
offers value at an unbeatable price, "free".

The best way to beat the recession is to not buy
into it. Don't give your energy away by following
the news media as they report daily negativity of
how terrible the economy is today.
When you accidently hear of someone speaking
words of fear related to the economic status,
stay on track by delibertly focusing your
attention on your goals and dreams.
Strive to becoming a leader in your organization.
People are constantly searching for someone to lead
and guide them to a better place. Be the one to step
up to the plate and introduce a solution to their
financial problems. Not everyone knows that network
marketing is the best kept secret to financial security.
Lend a helping hand by offering those you come in
contact with something of value. Success starts with
education. Just as with any profession, if someone is
to reach success, it is mandatory that they acquire the
proper skills and training. Network marketing is a
profession and once you master the skills and get
connected with a 5 pillar company, you will be well
on your way to beating this recession.

Ways to beat the Recession

One of the most difficult part of starting
any new habit is making it through the
first month. I know you'll agree with
me when I say the first few days are the
toughest. The initial thought about
changing a habit on a permanent basis creates
feelings of overwhelming fear, but to think
about it as 30 days at a time makes the task
much more smoothier.
But once you get pass the first 30 days it then becomes much
easier to keep going because at this point you have overcome
the roughest resistance.
This is why we introduce our mental cleanse as a 30 day cleanse.
Think of it in the terms of a 30 day trial period. With a thirty
day trial, instead of making a permanent commitment, you make a
temporary commitment to create a new habit.
Once the period is up you're free to quit and return to your old
ways of doing things. It's only one month out of your life.
Isn't your life worth thirty days?
So for 30 days we are going to aim at cleaning up the mind by
creating new habits. These habits will only consist of those
that serve us in positive ways.
The trial will consist of shutting off the television, staying
away from newspaper reading, radio, online negativity. You will
eliminate all the negative surroundings. This includes ridding
yourself of negative people that talk about others.
You will strive daily to consume your mind with personal growth
activities such as reading inspiring books, listening to success
seminars and only hang around and converse with like minded
people that already have the things that you want in life.
Chances are at the end of your 30 days you will find that your
ability to continue in your new habits will be much greater than
when you first started the trial. I know that you will
accomplish great results and if you are ready, why not make it a
permanent habit? Regardless, if you choose permanent or
temporary, isn't your life worth 30 days?
Take part in mentoring that teaches mental cleanse techniques.

What does freedom mean to you? Are you like the millions of people that are in a state of panic over the constantly rising price of gas? Take for instance a situation that happen in my hometown recently. Everyone that I seem to speak with was in a panic because one local gas merchant raised the price of gas to over five dollars per gallon at his place of business.
There was a stir in the city that I had never seen before. Why was this? Could it be that people feared being without their mobility? There was a fear of losing control over their lives. They feared change. A change from driving their own personal cars to now maybe having to ride a public bus for transportation or switch to riding a bike or maybe even submit to walking.
The thought of limiting their driving habits was now a huge concern.

The person you project to be on the outside is
the person you truly are on the inside, whether
you are talking with a close friend or a total
stranger you just met. This is being your
authentic self. Being authentic is very empowering.
I'll share with you a poem by Dale Wimbrow
The Guy In The glass:
When you get what you want in your struggle for wealth,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say.
For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife
Who judgement upon you must pass.
The feller whose verdict counts most in your life
is the guy staring back from the glass.
He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
if the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may be like Jack Horner and "chiesel" a plum,
And think you're a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the guy in the glass.

I've heard success describe in a number of
different ways. The most unique definition
to me was defined as ...
"something that can't be bought and can
never be taken away".
This is saying success is having things like grace, integrity
and compassion. Let's not leave out dignity and honesty.
All these things possess a far greater value than obtaining
what the mass call riches such as the big house and fine cars.
Read this excert from the book: Tending the Roots of Wisdom by
Hong Ying Ming.
"Life is a long journey, but busy people make it too short;
The world is a very broad place,
But narrow minded people make it narrow-more than it should be;
Flowers dancing in the wind and moonlight in the snow are
beautiful relaxing sceneries, BUT worried people move too hectic
and miss the magic right before their eyes."

meaning of success, tune in to the free training offered by

There is nothing but positive feedback from
people about the results they are getting
from participating in our Mental Cleanse
courses sponsored by Mentoring For Free.
List to what my good friend Bob Bassett had
to share about what he's learned from chapter
seven of Think and Grow Rich.
I just looked back at my first lesson for this
chapter and found that I was struck then by
the same thing then as I am now - the idea
of becoming a 'go-giver'.
Chapter 7 must be trying to tell me something.
This time through the book, we are actually
following the instructions and saying our self
talk which includes the phrase "have fun helping
anyone and everyone ... "
We're having more fun and more success and
meeting many more people now than we did
What a great way to do business! It's not like
business at all. It's finding friends and helping
them, and as Tom says "The more problems
you solve, the more people you help, the more
successful you will be."
My thoughts on Organized Planning
Sep 9, 2008
I'm going to be straight up with you here.
If only I had discovered this one piece of
information when I first got started in network
marketing, my life would have changed for the
better so much sooner.
Many people feel this way when they first learn
about the Color Personality study. This is a
training that should be made mandatory for every
person breathing. I say that because this simple
technique and training is responsible for major changes
in so many business and personal lives of people.
The personality study has been around for quite some
time yet, it has never been so easy to understand like
the way it's taught in our Mentoring For Free classes.
Each month we dedicate one Saturday night training to
the color technique of the personality trait. There
is also a mini color training on week nights.
Once you master this simple skill and began to actively
use it in your everyday life, you will wonder why you
didn't learn about it sooner. You won't live another
day without using it to understand people, especially
your own love ones.
So join us each week to learn how you can grow your
business and make your life a whole lot simpler. We
will help you to learn how to think not what to think.
All the mentoring is free of charge.

Have you lost your will to dream?
Tell me, what would you do if you ever won a lottery?
Most people can't even imagine in their mind how
they would spend the money won from a lottery.
Lack of imagination. This is a rather common
problem among adults. Reason being, as children
growing up we had a rather highly developed imagination.
But when we approached school age and teen years, adults
had well planted the seed in us that we need not dream but
get serious about life.
What does freedom mean to you?
Freedom is living life with purpose!
Freedom is not having to wake up to an alarm clock but,
choosing to wake up when you are done sleeping.
Freedom is having time and money to live your life to
the fullest. Freedom is being healthy and spiritual
Now I ask you, can you see yourself having freedom in
your life? Would you like to start dreaming again and
make those dreams a reality? Let me share with you how
to become part of a mastermind team and be mentored by

I want to share a bit of knowledge with you that will
not only help you to build your business but, it can
help you in your personal life as well as all areas.
While attending a weekend conference this past week,
a speaker from the stage shared some important wisdom
that hit me like a ton of bricks. He said...
When you're presenting your opportunity to people,
did you know that It's not what you say? AND
It's not what you do But, it's how you make people
FEEL that makes all the difference.
People aren't really buying your opportunity,
they're buying You.
Remember MMFI -- It's what your prospects want.
MMFI = Make Me Feel Important!
Make it a habit to make your prospects feel special, important -
this will help you tremendously to grow your group.
We at Mentoring For Free will guide you all the way.

reaching your goals to get a positive outcome.
Whether it's called a success formula or success
recipe it all starts with making a decision.
Making the decision and having the desire to do
whatever it will take to obtain the level of
success that you desire. It's not enough
to only say "I want to be successful" as so many often say. For
mere words are never enough, taking action is a must.
Acquiring success can be a rocky road so be prepared to make
some sacrifices in your life as well as putting forth the effort
to stay consistent. This is where the slight edge comes into
play. By taking the actions to do those few simple things over a
consistent period of time will absolutely guide you down the
Once you have developed a plan of action that you will carry out
daily, there should be time set aside to develop yourself
personally. It's also called personal growth or self
improvement. Whatever name you choose, make it at least 15
minutes of uninterrupted time daily to enhance yourself and your
skills. Thirty minutes would be even better.
The next ingredient is to develop a mastermind group. Get
connected with a cafrefully chosen group of like minded people.
The energy of many like minds are so much more powerful and
beneficial than one mind. A person seeking success must be will
to do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do if the end
result is to be great.
The recipe won't be complete without the use of a proven system.
If your recipe is missing this ingredient, all of the planning,
mixing, and developing will not matter because the end result is
sure to be a total flop. So, what is meant by a proven system?
It is having a system in place that no matter who uses it the
results should be the same. Positive results, duplicable and
success should be the outcome.
When a decision is made to better oneself through personal
development and you make the sacrifices that are sure to surface
when striving to reach your set goals, it is then that progress
is being made.
By being consistent with the right actions that will move you
forward,and by having the carefully chosen mastermind group,
along with a proven duplicable system you now possess the
recipe for success.

How To Get What You Want
The indispensable first step to getting the
things you want out of life is this:
decide what you want.
Create your future from your future, not your past.
Belief Is Crucial
The number one problem that keeps people from winning
in the United States today is lack of belief in themselves.
Arthur L. Williams
You can be anything you want to be, if only you believe
with sufficient conviction and act in accordance with your
faith;for whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the
mind can achieve.
Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can.
I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity to
NOT know what can’t be done.
The Phrase “I can’t” is the most powerful force of negation
in the human psyche.
Paul R. Scheele
You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.
That’s what makes you a winner.
Lastly Be a Go-Giver, by offering more in value
than you take in payment.

There are countless people
searching for the right keys for
success. You will find most of
them on the internet, but they
are also everywhere including
your own back yard so to speak.
Everyone's looking for the best
ways to enhance their income
and lives. I'm sure you have heard many old wise tales
about successful people and what it took for them to get there.
If your life is anything like mine was at one point, you were
probably handed a lot of limiting beliefs about success. I
clearly remember hearing a close friend of mine say that she
would never get into network marketing because everyone that
does network marketing end up losing their health.
What a bunch of crock. Talking about limiting beliefs, but I
believed that statement for a very long time. As a result I
shyed away from anyone or anything that was associated with
I'm here to set the record straight. I got educated on the best
ways to become successful, but not before I went through all the
hoops and sewer of the world traditional way of doing things.
Does any of these sound familiar? To be successful you must
first make a list and contact all of your family and friends?
Next, you must talk to everyone that comes within three feet of
you. Lets not forget if they can fog a mirror get them in your
business. When that no longer work buy some leads! It was like
the blind leading the blind. None of this stuff works.
After many months of spinning my wheels, I can tell you with
absolute certainty, all those lines were lies. I finally found a
group of people that taught the truth. I learned that my failure
to reach success was definitely not my fault. I received the
skills and training that was offered and I started to utilize it
in my everyday business operation. My results turned around for
So, I'm here to tell you that you don't have to do any of the
above familiar things in order to gain success. You sure don't
have to lose your health. All you have to do is get connected to
the right source. A place where true skills are taught and the
training really works. This includes a duplicatable system that
will make your success journey easy and almost effortless.
Stop listening to the hype about getting a hundred no's before
you get one yes. Or working from the break of dawn until you can
no longer keep your eyes open. With the right people, right
training, and the right system it's certain that you can gain
the success you want without killing yourself or losing your

Think & Grow Rich-Chpt. 2
A burning desire to BE and to DO anything is the starting
point in which a dreamer takes off. In order to reach my goals,
my desires cannot be a hope or a wish it has to be a burning
desire with a definite purpose. Such as that which Barnes
He had the thought to become business partners with Edison.
That thought then became a pulsating desire until his dream
became his reality. It didn't happen over night or within a few
weeks. Nevertheless, it did happen because he stayed focused
on his desires.
Napoleon tells us that five years passed by before Barnes chance
that he was seeking made its appearance. Many give up way to
easily. When there's a burning desire, there is NO time frame.
So, the lesson learned here is never give up on a dream.
It will happen when I'm truly ready for it and believe that it can
be acquired. A desire can be so strong that it can even out wit mother
nature in some cases, it can change lives and create miracles.

In todays culture we are hearing a lot about world recession and
the state of the economy. Perhaps that’s because the market turmoil
is making us all feel just a little bit poorer these days.
There’s one big difference between the desperately poor and the
blissfully rich. That difference is the rich possess the ability to
focus on the long term.
Going fishing for jobs when the employers are not biting these
days can become very discouraging. Other alternatives could be
taking a chance on investing in the stock markets or in playing the
lottery, which I would never suggest. So what vehicle will you
use to reach the retirement you want?
Many are turning to the best kept secret in the business world
to reach their financial freedom. “Network Marketing”
Network marketing has become the fastest growing millionaire
maker of all the occupations. It’s now being embraced by more
CEO’s of fortune 500 companies as well as average Joe’s, and
even stay at home mom’s. They are all producing fantastic
incomes by way of network marketing.
A successful retirement is doable through the field of network
marketing. Now the question becomes “where do you begin?”
Getting educated in your desired field would be step one.
Learn how to avoid scam opportunities. Emerge yourself in
training that teaches the skills on what to look for, choosing
and excelling in the right opportunity. This will help to make
the journey more fun and create excitement.

offering this training, yet there is an enormous price tag
attached to it. I would like to offer you coaching and mentoring
that has an unbeatable price tag. “Free” Can’t complain about
the cost, right? The only cost will be your time, your
willingness, and a desire to change the outcome of your future.

retirement. Focus on creating your future and not dwelling in a
poverty mindset. Learn more about free coaching and mentoring

I made an interesting discover about the world's statistic
as far as income goes. If you are like most people, you
have to work for a living. If you don't work you don't
Although sad, yet it is true that about 97% of the world
fall into what I call linear income. Meaning they are
trading their time for money. That's the only way they will
get paid such as a career of a bus driver or laundry room
attendant, even doctors and lawyers. As long as they are
doing their job right then, whether its driving the bus or
seeing patients. When the job stops the money stops.
Then there's recurring income where you get paid for
doing the work right one time and being paid over and
over again for it. This would be a career of a
successful rock star like Elvis Presley. Each time his
music is purchased or being played by radio stations its
creating a royalty check for Elvis family members.
The same goes for professional sports stars like Tiger
Woods and Michael Jordan who endorses Nike sports wear.
When those Nike items are sold and advertised on their behalf
they receive royalty payments. Sounds nice doesn't it?
Which would you prefer, linear or recurring?
Well, good news if you chose recurring. Even though you
may not be talented like Elvis or have the skills of
Tiger Woods or Michael Jordan, there is still hope for
creating a recurring income.
It's through the power of network marketing.
Network marketing is sometimes known as the business
world best kept secret because CEO's and people from all
walks of life are learning to generate massive amounts
of income through the use of network marketing.
Learn the skills that will teach you to choose a business
that will be right for you and will lead you to your recurring
income. You can create your legacy with a recurring income.

You can’t go to sleep at night because you feel like your life
is one struggle after another and you can’t seem to pinpoint WHY
this is happening. I know the feeling oh too well. Not a good
feeling at all I might add. I remember some time ago thinking I
just was one of those people who are not meant to be successful
in life. But Why? I was faithful in doing the things I was told
to do to become successful!
The constant chatter in my head became overwhelming. Playing
that same recording in my mind, “How did THEY do it?”
Are your relationships suffering, and you end up not spending
any time with your kids, for the sake of working harder on your
business with no results? That was me until I stopped and ask my
self a very important question.

you try to get there, the further away those dreams move…Right?

What is a positive attitude? Being self-
assured and satisfied with your inner-self
is the beginning of the process. It's a
healthy self-image that radiates love and
sureness and makes the people who are around you feel
the same way.
Having an optimistic mental state or positive attitude is a key
ingredient for attaining success in every aspect of your life.
Your attitude determines how you approach your life and is
reflected in your career, business ventures,accomplishments and
To achieve your desires in life it is essential that you have a
winner’s attitude. People that we idolize for achieving
prominence would not have accomplished their desires by living
their life with a negative attitude. The rewarding elements for a
blessed life are accepting yourself, having the ability to
visualize your success and having the right attitude.
A positive attitude promotes an idealistic outlook on life. You
will feel more cheerful, healthier, more energetic and grounded.
Your trust in yourself and your abilities will be magnified. By
embracing an open and positive attitude your mind will be more
alert to the opportunities that will start to come your way.
Often when people have a negative attitude they become
exceedingly centered on their own problems and are unable to see
the opportunities that are standing before them. Once you train
your mind to automatically adopt a positive attitude, your
difficulties will not be as momentous and you will seem to
handle them with ease.
We are all captivated by positive people. They make us feel
great about life by lifting our spirits. Both positive and
negative attitudes are very infectious so it will be wise to
spend your time with positive, uplifting people and you will
attract the same energy.
When you absolutely believe that your goals will become
a reality you then have within you the potential to be,
do and have whatever you desire. Couple this with a positive
attitude and you will be unstoppable. It was quoted back in the
1900's that it would be impossible for man to fly. Then the
Wright Brothers piloted the world’s first powered
airplane two weeks later. The Wright Brothers had a definite
advantage, they positively believed that their goal was
Don’t let fear of failure hold you back from pursuing your
dreams. Trust in your dreams. When you approach life with a
positive attitude your spirit will be attracted to like energy
which will magnetically draw the right people towards you. By
taking on an attitude like the Wright Brothers, and believing
that anything is possible, we all will be able to soar to
greater heights and create huge successes. As long as we are
mindful of one of the main keys to success is a positive

A. They all harness the power of
a mastermind group?
It may sound like something new but the meeting of the masterminds
has been around for centuries now. Napoleon Hill spoke about it in
his book that was published back in 1937 called Think and Grow Rich.
If you were to do a study you will find that every super
successful person is a part of an elite mastermind group.
I couldn't comprehend the power that is generated through the use
of a mastermind until I became part of one. So much more can be
accomplished through the use of a group because as the old saying
goes “two heads are better than one”.This is such a true statement. Imagine all the amazing energy that is
developed in a mastermind setting. Power not only comes to us from
those in the mastermind group but it also comes from the power above.

This is My review of Chapter 1 of Napoleon
Hill's classic, Think and Grow Rich.
Our thoughts can be powerful things when
mixed with definite purpose, persistence,
and a burning desire.

an obsession. He took every action necessary to achieve

After months of being consistent in his thoughts, desires,

Many people who are striving to be successful
consider themselves as go-getters. However, along
their journey for success, oftentimes their plans
to get there are missing some of the main ingredients.
For greater success it is more important to focus on
becoming a go-giver rather than a go-getter.
I want to share some advice on how to guarantee your
success. I read this great book called The Go-Giver by
Bob Burg and John David Mann. it gives five laws that
really lay out the road map to success.
1. The Law of Value-giving more in value than you take
in payment is what determines your true worth.
2. Law of Compensation-means your income will be
determined by how many people you serve well.
3. Law of Influence-When you place other's interests
first, will determine how you influence people.
4. Law of Authenticity-The most valuable gift your can
offer is yourself.
5. The Law of Receptivity-many quote that it's better
to give than receive. The key to effective giving
is to always remain open to receiving.
As long as you incorporate these five laws of Stratospheric
into your life, you are headed for success. You are now
becoming a go-giver.
Mentoring For Free is all about giving!

chapter 3 of Think and Grow Rich by
Napoleon Hill. Self talk is crucial for
Napoleon Hill makes the following statements about
* Faith is the Head Chemist of the mind, so obviously
I need it.
* Faith is a state of mind which may be induced,
created... by affirmation or repeated instructions to
the subconscious mind, through the principle of auto
* Faith is a state of mind I may develop at will.
* Repetition of affirmation of orders to my sub
conscious mind is the only known method of VOLUNTARY
development of the emotion of faith.
* Any impulse of thought which is repeatedly passed
on to the subconscious mind is, finally, accepted and
acted upon by the subconscious mind, which proceeds to
translate that impulse into its physical equivalent by
the most practical procedure available.
* All thoughts which have been emotionalized (given
feeling) and mixed with faith begin immediately to
translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart.
* My belief, or faith, is the element which determines
the action of my subconscious mind.
* It is essential for me to encourage the positive
emotions as dominating forces of my mind, and discourage
and eliminate negative emotions.
* A mind dominated by positive emotions becomes a
favorable abode for the state of mind known as faith.
A mind so dominated may, AT WILL, give the subconscious
mind instructions, which it will accept and act upon
OK...I could go on and on--in fact, my favorite page
in this chapter is just ahead...BUT GUESS WHAT? This
is NOT some phenomenon we've never experienced before.
We ALL know how to do this already. We've been doing
it since the day we were born.
We think about what we want or don't want (fear) and
what we DECIDE we really, really desire, or what we
really, really fear, and... WALLA...our life becomes
blessed or doomed with whatever we desired or feared--
or what we thought about and believed and sprinkled
some emotion on day after day!
NOW we KNOW it WORKS! All we really need to do is
take one more step and use our self-talk like its
an inhaler that we need for our "asthma" and breathe
deeply of that pre-written self-talk as many times
per day as we need to breathe--you know, like Michael
always says..."You need it MORE than you need oxygen".
If I am too preoccupied or too lazy to take time to
bathe and brush my teeth, would the people around me
continue to put up with me day after day without
squacking about it? I doubt it!
Well, there's also no excuse good enough for me to be
too busy or too lazy to keep putting off my self-talk.
I need it more than I need oxygen IF I desire to create
And if I'm inhaling, I am looking for oxygen to inhale
rather than the air someone else exhaled in my face...
and I don't care if it's my soul mate's or my newborn
infant's carbon dioxide... I desire oxygen... so I move
my head a little bit and breathe in what I desire rather
than what someone else just breathed out into my face!
Self-talk is even easier, but I have to do it if I
desire the "oxygen" of my own desires versus the left
over, spewed-upon-me "carbon dioxide" of fear and
negativity from myself or others.
Would I walk around with my hands cupped over my mouth
and nose trying to smell my bad breath all day?
Then, stop allowing used up oxygen into my head in all
the other ways it sneaks in...by doing my pre-determined
self-talk over and over and over again--it will be like
wearing an oxygen mask 24-7 and I won't even have to
carry the tank!
So...we wrote it in Chapter 2..the self-talk is written.
Michael has shared his with us...start with that if you
don't have your own yet. You'll only have to say it 2
or 3 times to begin making changes in it so that it
feels more like yours.
And remember...we need it more than we need the shower
and the toothbrush...MORE THAN OXYGEN!
So, check your
Ask yourself: "How much fresh air (MY self-talk)
have I inhaled today?" Make sure it's ENOUGH because if I
have not, my dreams won't be coming true, and...
IT'S NOBODY'S FAULT BUT MY OWN.

In this review of Success In 10 Steps. I will
share what I have found to be a unique
wealth of knowledge. For anyone who is
searching for ways to reach success
while avoiding many of the struggles of
failure, this is a must read.
Success In 10 Steps was written by Michael
Dlouhy of Florida a few years ago. He uses
a simple yet very direct approach to help
many from all walks of life to discover why
they have been unsuccessful in gaining their
desired levels of success in life thus far.
Although this book is rather small in the number of pages, the
information that lies within it is so powerful and profound and
just makes good sense. I read the content of this book, say
maybe a total of three times. Not because it was a difficult
read but because of the simplicity of it. After my first
reading, which was done in one sitting nonstop. It left me
asking myself the question “could it be this simple?”
Many people including success scholars have written about
success. Michael Dlouhy has done what no other have actually
been able to established, and that is he tells you where the
problems lies, more importantly you are instructed on how to
correct them through a step by step system. The most fascinating
thing about this book and its step by step system is the fact
they're offered free of charge when everyone else is charging a
fee. Why is that, you're probably asking?
To understand the answer you must first understand who Michael
is. First off, he has over 30 years of experience and knowledge
in his field of expertise to share. After maintaining years of
continued success to the point of being financially free he was
inspired to write this book.
You see, Michael beat all the odds. Surviving a background of
childhood abuse, he so distinctly remembers being told by his
parents he will never amount to anything. He decided not to
believe those words. Instead he would believe the kind words of
a favorite aunt that told him he could do and be anything that
he wanted in life.
Short story version of his journey. After years of working hard
and diligently he managed to achieve some success but not the
level he desired. He made the discovery that others in his
chosen field were having the same challenges. Michael had to
find out why. So within a two year period he willingly joined
over one hundred companies to find his answers.
Fiercely studying these companies and their pay plan, his
discovery was made and he decided that the business world should
know the truth. As a result Success In 10 Steps was written and
freely distributed to many networkers and non-networkers.
Remarkable results has happened in the life and businesses of
those who were coachable and followed the advice of what is
shared in this little book.
Success In 10 Steps is truly a book for those who really believe
they deserve success. Those who have read it are seeing new
light and having new levels of success regardless of what
program they are working. I believe it's a winner and a must
have for long term success. So, if you haven't done so, download
it and read it today.

It is a sad fact that 95% of people living in the greatest F r e e Enterprise System the world has ever seen don't get the advantage of it. Many of the elder people all around tell me if they could live their lives over, they would take more chances and be more than they were.
So sad that 95% of people at age 65 are either dead or dead broke.
It's true! They've worked so hard all their lives and have little to
show for it. Why?
Because they've been bound with the Chains of Mediocrity and don't
even know it. Are you bound with the Chains of Mediocrity?
Did you know that your results in your business to date have little to
do with the time, energy and effort you have put into your business?
Huh? Are you surprised?
How could that be? It's because of...your programming!
Are You Programmed for Success ? or Mediocrity ? or Failure? If a person isn't programmed for success, they will self-destruct/ sabatoge themselves every time. I've seen it happen, just like I'm
sure you have in people who spend their hard earned money to get
started in this industry. And boy are they All Excited!
And they tell you how motivated they are then you call them to help
them get started, to set up a game plan with them. You really want
them to be successful, but... You can never reach them again. Alas!
They've gone into the dread---WPP----
(Witness Protection Program) Why? It's their Programming.
They don't see themselves as a person who is Worthy of success. Boy!
I've even seen this in people who got to a point of making a LOT of
money in our wonderful industry. They are headed to the top of the
company, then they knowingly self destruct and either fall down
below or quit altogether.
Don't let this happen to you get the proper training and skills that will
propel you upward to assure you reach long term success.

Which is the true statement?
Many people today live their entire lives on the basis of
"seeing is believing." That is to say, the only images they get
emotionally involved with are the ones they can discern with
their physical senses. But the individuals of real "vision,"
down through the ages, have always known the overriding
principle is, "what you see is what you get." Haven't you heard
that exact saying from your elders growing up in your childhood
Expressed somewhat differently, what this means is that the
images in people's minds, actually precede the concrete images,
which pervade our material world. Therefore, you should be aware
of the fact that the fascinating physical world we see before
us, with all of its conveniences for making our lives more
comfortable, has been built largely by image-makers - men and
women of vision who knew what they could do, and EXPECTED
everything else to "fall into place," regardless of what their
critics might say to the contrary.
If we take heed to these teachings from the experts of our
past, we can create the life of our dreams. Remember, you will
only receive what you truly expect, not what you only wish for.
So dream big and believe and expect and it shall surely be
created. You will see it when you believe it!

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both.
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
Then took the other as just as fair.
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Though as for that, the passing there,
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how many leads onto way.
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh,
Somewhere ages and ages hence.
Two roads diverged in a wood,
And I took the one less traveled by.
And that has made all the difference.

It's never over til you say it's over:
I have to agree with Max.
The power to hold on
in spite of everything,
to endure, is the quality of a winner.
Your greatest glory is not in never
failing, but in rising up every time
It's your constant and determined effort
that will eventually break down all the
resistance and sweep away the barriers
before you. Napoleon Hill said it best.
Persistence means taking pains to
overcome every obstacle to do all
that's required to reach every goal
that you desire.
All great achievements require time,

of temporary defeat.

small, reach for the stars, attainable goals, or ambitious ones,
but is that really how success works?
To get anywhere you need to know where you're going they tell
us. What if where you're going isn't where you really want to
go? Meaning most people goals aren't their own. Most are driven
by either society or family pressures.
A great majority of goal setters tend to be people pleasers.
They sacrifice their own hopes of today for something wonderful
that may happen tomorrow that will please others. Forever living
in the future. What happens with goals that aren't your own, is
you end up chasing the goal instead of achieving them. By doing
this you are setting yourself up for failure.
I want to encourage more goal free living. Learn to live in the
moment, in the now, follow your own passion, knowing that you
can change course at anytime. When someone is driven by passion,
most always they are making a contribution. That alone is
You may want to ask yourself this question. “Do I have the right

like it shocked me...
Years ago I was so naive.
I thought all companies
paid their distributors
about the same.
I didn't realize just how
Wrong, Wrong, Wrong
Imagine a Big Staircase...
A Really Big Staircase-
It's 10,000 steps. Whew!
Now imagine a staircase
that's 7,000 steps.
Now one that's 3,000 steps.
Now one that's 350 steps.
Which one would you rather
Dumb question I know.
I'm like you.
I'd rather climb the one
with only 350 steps.
So how does this relate to
what companies pay out
When I did some research,
I was shocked when I
discovered for example,
that for Company A, you need
10,000 people to make 10K a month,
for Company B, you need
7,000 people to make 10K,
for Company C you need
and for Company D,
only 350 people are needed
for the 10K !
I would never have imagined
that there was actually that
much difference in
Last week a woman asked me
to figure out how many
it would take in her
company for her to make
the 10K a month
when I told her 8,500,
she was speechless.
The moral of the story is...
know what it's going to
take you to get where
you want to go!
so you can work smarter
and not harder.

change things. Read what's happening for my friend
Larry, since he began his mental cleanse.
Chapter 9,,, PERSISTENCE
I have to begin this lesson by telling, or should I
say admitting to myself and my team that this lesson
has been an overwhelming challenge for me at times.
I have read this chapter over and over for the past
week. Highlighting the sentences and whole paragraphs
that caught my attention the first time, each time
after I highlighted what I missed the times before.
I have some points underlined and notes in the
margins. Each time I read it I found something
different that grabbed my attention and sometimes
even twisted my heart to the point I was angry
with myself for what I found while taking mental
inventory of myself and my life.
Each time I read this chapter I was ready to write
my lesson. I would get my notebook out, grab my pen
and the chapter which my notes and highlights were
in and I was stuck.
I had no idea what to put down into words, so I
took more notes from the chapter and previous notes
and wrote them in my notebook adding up to four pages
Today I got out of bed early as usual. I got through
my morning routine and came to my office in a hurry
and finished with my morning to-do list in record time,
just so I could start to write my lesson and get stuck
I spent a couple hours trying to reread the chapter
and go through notes in hopes it would just come to
me what I needed to say.
Finally after taking a good look at myself and saying
my hourly dose of Auto-Suggestion to clear my head
of negative thoughts, I knew exactly what to say.
You see, PERSISTENCE paid off here my friends. I
could have given up and quit trying at all nearly a week
ago. Two or three months ago that is exactly what I would
have done, but today I HAVE A BURNING DESIRE TO
OWN MY LIFE.
I want to take control of what I was taught
I never could because I wasn't good enough.
Through the process of Auto-Suggestion and studying
the rest of the principles in this book with the co-
operation of this Master Mind Group, I have been
spending my time devoting myself to building my
These now BURNING DESIRES are the fuel that keeps
my PERSISTENCE barreling through all barriers,
where I would have stopped and turned back to
It is exciting to know that I will soon reach my
Desires. As I build these desires along with my
persistence I am staying plugged in to the Master
Mind Group and studying the principles in each
chapter as we go. I am preparing my mind to
"attract" my strongest desires.
I surely hope that the realization and the unfamiliar
emotions I am experiencing have came through the words
I have put down here because this alone has been a
huge battle for me, a barrier I would have never be-
fore now been able to penetrate.
Thanks to my sponsor, Joseph Quinn, who never strayed
from his own PERSISTENCE when he called me all 10
times before I downloaded the ebook, and thanks
Michael and Linda for your PERSISTENCE in faith and
legendary leadership, and thanks to the whole team
for your never ending love and support.
Come be apart and get life changing results.

Most people who are successful in their work and their relationships have experienced many failures along their road to success. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the electric bulb, is often quoted regarding failure:
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
"I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward."
"Many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
"Show me a thoroughly satisfied man, and I will show you a failure."
If Edison has been afraid of failure, or believed that failure meant he was inadequate, he would never have invented the light bulb!
In order to achieve success in any area of your life, you need to redefine failure. Instead of seeing failure as an indication of your inadequacy or lack of worth, you need to see failure as a stepping-stone to success. Some of the most financially successful people experienced repeated failures.
* Walt Disney was a high school drop out who suffered bankruptcy and repeated financial and business disasters.
* Milton Hershey, chocolate maker and founder of the famous Hershey Foods Corp., found success only after filing for bankruptcy for his first four candy companies.
* Henry Ford filed for bankruptcy for the first car company he started. He didn't succeed until he started his third company, Ford Motor Company.
* After P.T. Barnum, American showman, went bankrupt, he joined forces with circus operator James A. Bailey to found Barnum and Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth.
* Quaker Oats went bankrupt three times, as did Wrigley from Wrigley's Gum. Pepsi-Cola went bankrupt twice. Other famous companies that also went bankrupt are Birds Eye Frozen Foods, Borden's,? and Aunt Jemima.
* Albert Einstein did poorly in elementary school, and he failed his first college entrance exam at Zurich Polytechnic.
* Winston Churchill had a lifetime of defeats and setbacks before becoming prime minister of England at age 62. All of his greatest accomplishments and contributions came when he was a senior citizen.
* Sir Laurence Olivier, one of the greatest actors of the 20th century, tripped over the door sill and fell headfirst into the floodlights the very first time he had ever set foot on the professional stage!
* Woody Allen flunked motion picture production at New York University and the City College of New York and failed English at N.Y.U.
* Astronaut Ed Gibson flunked first and fourth grades.
* Lucille Ball was once dismissed from drama school for being too quiet and shy.
If these successful people had been afraid of failure, they would never have offered the world their talents. They were able to go on to success because they saw failure as a learning opportunity rather than as an indication of their inadequacy.
Are you ready to change your concept of failure? Are you ready to let go of worrying about what failure says about you and just learn from it? Are you ready to free your soul to do what you really want to do?
If the fear of failure is stopping you from doing what you really want to do, I want to encourage you to change your concept of failure. I want to encourage you to let go of your old way of seeing failure and start to envision failures as learning opportunities on the way to success. Just as Thomas Edison did, I encourage you to see every failure as a step forward!
