Luck Is What You Make it
I get so frustrated when people call me lucky. They tell me they wish they could have the things I have, or they wish they could travel or see the world like I do. They tell me I'm lucky.... but they ignore the fact that luck is what you make of it.
My friends and family also wonder HOW I could go on 4 or 5 vacations a year, or fly around the country to visit people when I do not "WORK"
They tell me I am SOOO Lucky and they WISH they could do that. I watch, they work, go home, burn on the boob tube, or play games on their computer and then wonder why they have no time or money.
Then they say I'm LUCKY. UNREAL.
HMMMM I do NOT believe in LUCK. I am blessed and I am thankful I was able to break out of the mold and overcome my early training to fit into the "normal" where we report to a JOB, give our 8-10 hours, come home, watch tv, so we can do it all over again.
There was NO luck involved in that. It was simply pure determination, and hard work, and failing a lot of times before I learned to get it right.
There were times I did have that normal JOB, and I came home after serving my sentence, to get online or on the phone, and work for 6-8 more hours. I would get up 2 hours early to answer email and work then go to that JOB. I would put in time on my business weekends, nights, every spare moment I was doing SOMETHING to grow my business.
I was determined to succeed and let nothing stand in my way. That's NOT luck, it's WORK.
Thinking back, I really do NOT know how I did it. I failed MANY times. I made some ROTTEN choices. I started over more times than I can count on my fingers and toes. I got knocked down, cheated, lied to, mislead.
With each failure, I learned something and looking back I would say, it was a learning process. I learned more from the failures than the successes, and I learned what NOT to do, so I knew how to look for the pitfalls and I developed a keen sense of intuition.
Also, because of the many failures, I decided to diversify. I decided it is better for me to build a solid income with multiple checks. This way, should one not go so well, or let me down, I would not be without an income, or completely starting from scratch.
I did NOT build multiple incomes all at once, but one by one. It's proven to be a wise choice, as today, I have 5 checks that come in, some monthly and some weekly.
START where you are now, focus on it, build it, and grow it and then find something that fits well with it and start another income stream. Talking to prospects becomes a matter of helping them, get what they want, in the way they want, so you learn to buile the relationship first.
THERE IS NO LUCK.
I learned Luck is simply being willing to step up to the plate, and swing. If you miss the ball, you swing again and again till you hit that home run. Home runs are not limited to ONCE in your life, so you get up and do another and another.
That's my LUCK. If you want to be lucky yourself, you just have to get up, and decide what you want, then go for it. NEVER let anyone stop you. Just take action.
Don't listen to the critics. Use your brain. Don't you think if they knew HOW to do it, they would. IF you want to make 10,000 per month, don't listen to someone making 1,000. Look around, pick a roll model. Find people that ARE already doing what you want to do.
WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING?
Choose a mentor, and learn from them and with them. Do something daily to grow your business, even if you have only 30 minutes. USE your time wisely, and stay focused on those goals.
Again no luck. I do believe I am very fortunate to have stuck with this, and not listened to the so called experts that preach to us all.
Here are a few things I was told over the years that I have were totally UNTRUE. The experts were wrong there when they said:
1. You can not build a "real" business on the internet.
I have done all 3.
I LOVE A challenge and each time an EXPERT claimed I could not do something only made me more determined to prove them wrong.
I look around at the so called "heavy hitter" experts in our business. Most of them may have built a fortune at one time in a company, but they do not tell us what they spent to do it. They tell us only what they want us to hear so we will follow them.
In addition, I do not know of ANY big name person, in our industry that is with the same company today as when I knew them 5-10 years ago. SO....if their theory of only doing ONE company holds true, why did they move to another one?
One other thing to ponder, while the EXPERTS told me I could only succeed in one, the same experts were selling autoresponders, web sites and tools to their downline, something I've NEVER believed in.
So to me, if someone says something CAN'T be done, I am more determined than ever to do it. I don't believe in the word can't any more than the word luck.
JUST DO IT.
For myself, if you tell me I can't, I will prove you wrong.
I will find a way, I will move mountains, or go over, around or through.
I know one thing, if I can do it so can you! I have no special talents, I am NOT a public speaker. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that most of you out there, are much more talented than I ever thought of being, so it's not about talent.
Use your talents and don't be stopped by critics.
Luck is nothing more than ACTION and persistence and good hard work. Want your luck to change, change your outlook and take action today. Go to WORK, and focus on the task at hand, build your business so down the road you friends can call you lucky too.
GO to work and meet me at the TOP and let's celebrate together.

MLM, Pyramid Schemes, and Matrices
Have you ever wondered what the difference is? MLM operators claim they're not operating a pyramid scheme. Matrix and "forced matrix" operators claim that what they have is better than MLM. So what are the differences?Pyramid Schemes:Pyramid Schemes are illegal in the USA, and probably abroad. We all know how these schemes work, or at least get the jist of the idea. A person (the originator) starts by sending a message to several people. Usually people he/she knows. The message in some round about way, will tell everyone to send him $5 or so...and then send the message to someone else. All the while adding names to the list, and each new recipient must send money to the first person, second person...etcThere are a million variations of the Pyramid Scheme, but the main attribute that define a pyramid scheme ( also known as chain letter) is that there is no product, it's just people sending money. The term "Pyramid Scheme" is derived from the fact that it starts with one and the size of those involved increases as you move towards the bottom. On paper, it looks like the shape of a triangle, or pyramid.Multi Level Marketing:How is MLM different from a pyramid scheme? After all, on paper any MLM looks like a pyramid in reality right? The differences are very simple. In MLM there is a product being sold. Income is generated from "commissions". It's actually a pyramid scheme, except that the participants get something back...regardless of whether the people they refer actually pay for something...In MLM, the participant always gains from their investment. The catch is in the value of the product that the participant receives. This is the reason that MLM is so big on the internet. Because, information can have a monetary value, and it cost the distributor nothing. So ebooks, software, newsletters...etc... these are the most common products used in MLM. MLMers have added tangible products as well, and home products were the first to use MLM as a primary marketing strategy.The Forced Matrix:With so many MLM programs on the market these days, originators have tried to make their programs more desirable than others. Hence the forced matrix idea. In a regular MLM program, your monetary gains are based entirely on how good you are at marketing the program. However, most people arent' very good. So it would benefit the less talented if they had help from the talented. Basically, if the number of people who can join under you is limited in any way...then it's a forced matrix. The idea being, anyone else you refer extra..will go under someone else. The best implementations put the extra person under one of the people YOU have under YOU. Hence it helps the person under you, which helps you too.The term is tossed around a bit, and sometimes not used at all. However, that is what defines a forced matrix. Sometimes numbers are used to describe a forced matrix more thoroughly....like "4 X 4 forced matrix" for instance. Which might mean that you can only have 4 people directly under you and only 4 people under those 4 who you recieve commissions from.There is a hi-bred idea that has become common now, where by a person can deliberately place a referral in another line of their choice. A sort of traffic control attribute that helps originators get their referrals interested. This has been an attempt to make regular MLM more appealing, and it has worked. In fact, forced matrix MLMers have even implemented the option in their own programs.The benefits of either are about equal. With a forced matrix, you stand to earn an income faster, but increases in income are slower because your referrals get forced further down the line from you. With regular MLM you have a stronger base, and sustaining it is generally easier...but first profits can be slow. If you want a little income faster, go with a forced matrix. If you want BIG profits and are willing to work a long time for it, go with regular MLM programs.

The Multi-level Marketing (MLM) Trap
In the search for the quickest way to get rich, many people fall prey with promise of easy money. One example is the idea of multi-level marketing (MLM). Multi-level marketing (MLM) is also known as network marketing and referral marketing. MLM is easy enough to understand. Imagine you have a product to sell. A common MLM product is a vitamin or mineral supplement. You could do what most businesses do: either sell it directly to consumers or find others who will buy your product from you and sell it to other people. MLM schemes require that you recruit people not only to buy and sell your product, but who will also recruit people who will not only buy and sell your product but also recruit people thus perpetuating a never-ending cycle. Only there is an end to the supposed self-sustaining business practice of MLM.
