Success : The Rich Escaped the Failure Matrix

You have heard that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  The fact is the ceiling on each floor keeps rising, new floors are added constantly and the ground floor has not changed.  Some people keep digging a hole for themselves while others go to work.  The gap is getting larger and the reason is not the rich are not offering a hand up.  The ‘poor’ won’t get on the escalator or they demand a hand out instead.   Who do you choose to be?

I have studied the numbers and I have talked with many successful people to learn their statistics and I have read more books on the subject than I can count.  Ivan R. Misner’s book ‘The 29% Solution shares the theory that everyone on this planet is connected by six degrees of separation is not true.   The data he shares suggests that 29% of us are connected and the remaining 71% are not.  The 71% still have Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny however.

In general, here is how it works.  Out of every 100 people you know and come into contact daily, there are 3 – 5 who already have what it takes to be great at building a successful youareconfinedbusiness.  You know who they are in your group too! There are another 24 – 27 people that will give it a shot if the timing is right, their stars are in alignment and you approach them properly. Many will join you in a home business, do a little bit, and then disappear, unless you show them the way. The more skilled you are  and the the more skills you teach others, that many more will make the move into the first group and become long term players.  That leaves about 68 – 73 out of 100 that are not available for you, who cannot be bothered with your opportunity, for any number of reasons.  Yes, all of them have the ability to be successful!  What’s missing?  Desire and education, a different education than the one that programed them for failure.  You could lead many of these by your example to financial prosperity. When their ‘desire pilot light’ gets turned back on they will ask you for the education. Do not give up on anyone! Do not break your ‘pick’ on anyone either.  Find the few who really want your and your uplines help and the rest will always have the chance to return.

What’s your choice?

Yes! You always have a choice.

Which one are you?

My years networking with people have proven to me that the Pareto Principle is true. 80% fail because they quit; too easily and too often; They don’t have a coach or mentor, they fall for every scam and get rich quick scheme and never invest the time and energy to figure out how to make work what they do get in that could work actually work. [They DON’T Work.]  They are in love with the sizzle and leave the steak on the table for someone else.  If there was a magic pill or magic button this group would stop taking it and stop sharing it because it would steal their life’s story.  They buy lottery tickets and lose their one winner in their neighbor’s laundry. Any win would end their reason or excuse for failure because the pity party would end. Their favorite quote is “If it’s too good to be true…”    Are you ready to escape this madness? We all are surrounded by this.  It is time to step up!  Have you listened to “Effortless Success”?  Hard work as the path to success is a fairy tale and it may work for some but most people get stuck in one of the three positions that ‘hard work’ says are your only choices; villain, victim or hero.  That game does not produce success for most people!  Current events suggest all three are the same people.

16% are on the bubble. They don’t invest enough time, energy or money to actually make it. stopShould of, could of, would of are three of their favorite phrases.  Their efforts usually come up short and most of this group will return to where they came from – the 80% above.  Lone rangers, individualists and magical thinkers are a large part of this group.  Their last coach helped them to ride a bicycle and they forgot learning how took that kind of assistance for them to find balance. They are afraid of commitment longer than a month or two and the long term strategy needed to acquire financial freedom either scares them or confuses them.  These well trained job holders are often heard saying “I can’t because….” 

Pareto Squared is 4% and they practice the Laws of Success they learned from someone (a mentor or coach) and by experience they have put it into daily practice.  They live within a time and treasure budget and operate a plan designed to lead them to financial independence.  This group hangs out with others who wear their failures proudly and never quit.   Once they have accomplished something they expand its size and its arena to include others who want more out of life for themselves, their families and their friends.  These birds of a feather recognize themselves in others who have discovered success is made up of 99% failure. 

When offered a winning opportunity they remark “I will ….” Or “How can I accomplish …”

  4. Are you dissatisfied or unhappy with some aspect of your life and you are willing to do something to change it? Is there something you have always wanted that has been just beyond your grasp? If so, you get another star. (There is a path beyond struggle, stress and sacrifice that works called effortlessness.)
  5. Do you have a healthy self-image? Are you a look sharp, feel sharp, be sharp kind of person? Can you spend time with just yourself in the mirror without immediately turning away? If you are, give yourself a star.
  6. Bonus question! Are you already taking nutritionals demonstrating a commitment to your health? If you do give yourself a star. If you don’t take any nutritionals, subtract three from your current score.

The Happiness Trap

I have been looking for the triggers to effortlessness in my life for a long time. I have had long periods of serendipitous coincidences and synchronicity where even the accidents out of my control were magical. Everything just worked out somehow effortlessly. Happiness insured I didn’t even notice that was different from most people around me and when I did have it exposed I was concerned at first that I didn’t do anything for it to happen. That seemed illogical rather quickly. What I was stuck with for a long time was I didn’t know how I did it. I couldn’t explain it or share ‘it’ so anyone who wanted it could produce it too. Everyone is worthy of having everything, their hearts desire, effortlesslysomebody1

I have been reading multiple books at a time since I first learned ‘Run Dick run. See Sally run.” Some of the books left me altered somehow. I read ‘The Seven Sweet Blessings of Christ and How to Make Them Yours’ by Gerald Vann as a doubting Thomas teenager. Gerald in his offhand manner mentions that the one thing all the saints have in common is being ‘notoriously happy’.

Happiness is a choice. However much of what is offered about happiness is from the position it is missing and there is something you must do to acquire it. For many it is either how they keep score or the goal for what they are doing, a place to get to and then they will be happy. Highly unlikely in either case happiness ever appears!

Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit. – Hosea Ballou

As a child I heard often, whenever I was especially upset and pontificating about something … “The things we like least in others is the thing we like least in ourselves.” Or “Remember, whenever you point a finger at someone, three are pointing back at you.”


NO Happiness playing this game

At some point, I realized that the problem’s solution was in me. It was later I realized everything I liked about people was also in me. Much later, I stopped taking it personal when someone found fault with some aspect of me knowing I had only mirrored him or her somehow. Engaging in the attack never made a difference.

What we see in others is only a reflection of ourselves. If you cannot find kindness, tenderness, love, compassion, consideration in someone, it is a reflection of you upsetting you. Two worthwhile blogs that do this justice are:

Everyone is Your Mirror – The Greatest Relationship Secret By Tania Kotsos

THE SECOND UNIVERSAL TRUTH: Your life is a mirror by Michael Brown

Reject the mirrors in your life at great loss and risk of losing any true happiness.

Happiness is either the path or the goal. As a goal you are not happy mirror8pretending everything is all right. Practicing nice may even be abuse if you are not happy. If what you are doing is because it makes you happy, what happens when it doesn’t? What if everything done for happiness was not about happiness but about getting something you already have but can’t see. Would you do the stuff you do that ‘makes you happy’ if you had all the happiness and love already? Maybe, but would you really do things for [to] people who don’t want it, don’t need it and then have to offer ‘positive’ feedback for gratitude or thankfulness to maintain the illusion. Yes, they lie to you and often to themselves.

If the path you are on is not happy, what has you on it? What would it take to get off it?

You are either happy or you are not. What might be a source for you being notoriously happy today right where you are? Can you find other sources? When you come from happiness, you don’t have to go looking for it.

You don’t have to go looking for love when it’s where you come from. – Werner Erhard

mirror11A source of happiness and all suffering are the thoughts you believe.

A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years. – Byron Katie

There is nothing that isn’t true if you believe it; and nothing is true, believe it or not. – Byron Katie

Every problem perceived to be ‘out there’ is really nothing more than a misperception within your own thinking. – Byron Katie

What does all this have to do with effortlessness? Happiness, the real deal, is the fuel that propels effortlessness.

You must create or generate happiness in yourself. No one and nothing else will do it for you. If you are not happy in one place, you are not happy anywhere and covering it with either peanut butter or some kind of glossy lacquer to hide the unhappiness freezes out any chance of real happiness.

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere. -Agnes Repplier

THERE ARE ESSENTIALLY THREE WAYS to go for, get, and have what you want—the right way, the wrong way, and your way. The sooner you find your way (and the more you are willing to follow it), the easier your life gets and the more effortless your success. – Michael Neill

My favorite parable, fable is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. My producing a mirror12‘just right’ on a moment-to-moment basis means curiously considering too hard and too soft as quickly as possible to realize just right. Just right has a tendency to move from day to day.

The more you live from happiness instead of for happiness, the sooner you realize that changing the world [or anyone in it but you] is the worst possible way to change how you feel. So let me ask you one final question: If you already had all the happiness and love in the world right now, what would you still want? – Michael Neill

Really! I want to know. If you are up for discovering effortlessness use a way to contact me.



98% Doomed for Failure based on Their Beliefs

You have to change your thinking first, and then the evidence appears. Our big mistake is that we do it the other way around. We demand to see the evidence before we believe it to be true.

Understanding, knowing how, knowing what to do is insufficient for producing success. If you pay any attention to what you ‘already know’, you know this is true. We have been taught what to think and what to believe. Those that are willing to set aside all of their beliefs discover that is the only problem to solve.

He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice. – Albert Einstein

Once you begin to notice how much of what you saw is false or what a difference what you see and are able to do differently once you begin changing what you believe [you may always change it back at any time], the playground becomes enormous! 

thinkingISlimitationsYou may be asking, “How do I change what I believe?”  The first step is realize all you have now are sets of assumptions you hold to be true.

In the assumptions from which you are asking the question, you allow for no truthful answer to the question. The words you use reflect your assumptions accurately, and given your assumptions, there’s no solution to the problem. One cannot solve the problem in the system you are using. In fact, that system is the problem. – Werner Erhard

The first place to look is the questions you ask yourself. Can you ask different questions that produce new answers or better yet, new questions!?
