Somebody and Nobody

I am always looking for a way to rearrange my worldview, my internal map of reality or at least break it up a little.  I recently spent 48 hours in silence, no internet, no talking, no phone, my rockstalkthoughts, a few good books and me.  As has happened before when I ‘returned’ many things I have never seen before that was always there suddenly appear shocking and crystal clear.

My father has always been a great storyteller. He lives on the same ground he grew up on over eighty years ago.  A story I have heard before, but heard for the first time yesterday, happened when he was the delivery driver for a farm implement dealer.  He was a teacher and elementary principle also and he lived his life in the middle 50’s with youthful fervor.   

It was a Saturday and he had eight deliveries to make. The furthest delivery away was the last one placed on the flat bed to be the first one off. The salesman’s note said the dog at the first destination was a mean one and to be cautious.  When he pulled into the drive, a huge dog made herself known and she made it clear trespassers were not welcome. 

Dad cracked opened the door on the vehicle and let the dog smell him as he climbed out.  He waited a moment expecting someone to come and help unload the plough. No one came after a few minutes with the dog so he slid the plough off the flat bed in the yard where he was. He had seven more deliveries to make.  After taking the plough off and securing the remainder of the load, he stood petting the ‘mean’ dog waiting for someone to sign for the delivery. 

somebody1The owner appeared and with a bit of awe and agitation said, “Nobody has been able to pet that dog since she had puppies!”

Dad said, “I am somebody. You figured she would have me waiting until you were ready.  I have delivered your plough, please sign for the delivery.”

My dad was always somebody to reckon with when I was growing up.  He has only gotten older and wiser. Growing up there were very few rules and following them always and instantly was the first one.  We moved often. I was the oldest of six and initially a larger house every few years was required. As dad began building his resume, we moved to different towns as his responsibilities expanded.  I attended three different grade schools and from seventh to twelfth grade, three different high schools as well.  

I learned to be observant and adapt to new situations.  Every new neighborhood and town had different opinions, rules and people.  Family was the constant. I always had mom and dad, three sisters, two brothers and a dog.  I was always as big as the boys two years older were too. My method evolved to observe, fit in and not make waves.

In the seventh grade, we got a basenji puppy. He had white paws, had tricolor brown, black and basenjiwhite makings with a tip of white on his tail saying to call him Tippy.  When I wasn’t in school, Tippy was with me almost always. One late morning as we meandered down a country road on a perfect sunny day, a much larger female dog came out to greet us. The back of her neck to her tail was on end, her tail was not wagging and she was not sure if she should bark or growl or both. Basenji’s don’t bark usually and Tippy never backed down.  The initial unwelcoming encounter evolved into tails wagging and the usual interests shown between alphas.  She was twice the size of Tippy and an unknown multiple mixture of various breeds.  We called them Heinz 57’s.  She accepted my rubbing between her ears and was happy now to be with us.

Suddenly a young man, early twenties most likely, appeared and declared with a tinge of worry in his voice, “Hey! Who are you? Nobody can pet that dog!!

nobody0The two dogs and I stood there calmly as he walked up to us. At 6’2”, I was a little taller than he was. I smiled with a smirk only 13 year olds have and said, “You’re right! I am ‘Nobody’. You have heard of me too it seems. Nobody’s smarter. Nobody’s faster.” For emphasis, I rubbed his dogs ears a little harder as I said, “Nobody can do this.”  I paused and smiled saying,  “My given name is Michael. What’s yours and what’s your dog’s name?”

He chuckled; called me a smart aleck and we exchanged names and shook hands. He and his dog returned to his yard and Tippy and I continued our day’s journey.

I practiced being both nobody and somebody growing up.  Both personas come in handy and nobody8aboth may hide one from the other.  I got straight A’s, lettered in three sports from freshman on, participated in all the extracurricular activities available.  I avoided winning recognition and it happened anyway.  I joined the Navy and continued developing ‘nobody’ and ‘somebody’. 

The hidden cultural goal, that every commercial, TV show, movie and news report lives from screams to always climb to the top of the mountain, to be the best at something, to be nobody somebody. When it happened, when my superiors, peers and I knew I was the best in the world and had been for twelve months in a row it hit me. Nothing had changed!  Not me in any way, the world looked and felt exactly as it had before. No bells, whistles or alarms sounded. I was the best in the world and so what.  The feeling past and for the next eighteen months I repeated the monthly climb. I enjoyed the experience.  I was somebody that nobody but a few would ever know about.  How did it happen and how did I do it became the puzzle to figure out next.

nobody4aI began noticing lots and lots of coincidences. The bread crumbs were a solid neon blazing orange line!  I listened to “A World that Works for Everyone” and its call to action altered my thinking.  The time to reframe, reform and regenerate experience has arrived and I say do it daily!

My most recent trek up the mountain began after finding a company that matched my ideals in July, 2013.  I joined in August and earned Diamond qualification my first ninety days. Again, the experience of being a somebody nobody knows.  The mountain has no top however!! I know how to do this!
My recent adventure into silence let me see one trouble climbing mountains with tops always means coming down instead of mountains that have no top lets you keep climbing. I enjoy the climb, do you? Imagine all your wildest dreams fulfilled. It is NOT on top of a mountain. Massive impossible dreams blossom and bloom on the way up one with no top!

If nobody can tell you what to do or you want somebody to show you how to climb the mountain, I may be that guy for you.  Watch this 17:12 minute video and if you are ready to climb beyond any top you ever imagined, leave your information and make sure we have a conversation before you make any decisions!

The Place to Begin is Where you Are! Joy to Live!

Imagine you wanted to walk through a minefield. Who wants to go first? On the other hand, would you rather have someone who knows the way go first and you simply follow carefully in his or her footsteps?  What is the best route to success earning income from home? The most difficult part is beginning where you are, instead of all the other places you wish you were.  This may be the most difficult part beginning where you are.

Like everything, beginning requires an inventory and its best if you know what you need to inventory and whatisstoppingyoumaintain in inventory for success to appear.

You only need time and suspects. Time is the most expensive and you are using it all now. Suspects are around seven plus billion and growing daily.

Time is the first and most important ingredient you need to track.  How much will you carve out of you current schedule for your dreams to come true?  You will have to give up what you are spending it on now or the opportunity that moved onto your plate will die. If you are interested in treating this like a business, I suggest that will only waste your time. You need to treat it like a job.  You show up for a job, you get what needs doing done, even when you would rather be somewhere else.  Design a job that pays you the rest of your life!  Let me know how much time you are going to put in and then treat it like a job.  Ten hours a week is a good place to begin. A couple hours five days a week will work.  You could break it into pieces over the day too. You may always add hours and weekends are suddenly a Joy to Live! Fewer than ten hours weekly may not provide any traction or winning excitement.  If you participate with me in Joy to Live, no hours are part of the LONG TERM plan but that is a long-term wait.  It works however!

There are dozens of trainers, teachers, coaches and wonderful mentors in this field. I’ve experienced many. I believe every one of us wants the same three things!  The trifecta is more income, more time to spend it on and better health. How is that possible pushing forty plus hours on a job weekly, adding ten or more hours doing something constructive part time and having all your other distractions/commitments not make more demands on you?!

invite2thejourneyThe method that works is to build groups that can build effective groups that don’t need you.  Every other method takes more and more of your time. Until you learn to ‘leverage’ your time, nothing can work successfully long term.

There are two approaches and you must learn one to understand and to teach them both.

The first one is sponsor more people than the minimum. Enrolling people into the program is a skill. What is the minimum? Every plan has a number. JTL’s minimum to earn income is zero. If you plan on this level of commitment, you had better have someone like me as your sponsor!

The second one is help your people sponsoring more than the minimum teaching their enrollees to do the same.

The second skill takes a bit longer but until you are confident with the first one, it is difficult to show anyone how to do it.  The second skill matches the objective to have groups building that do not need you. The number bantered about in every training I have done is one hundred.  The suggestion is when one hundred people in your downline are building their own groups that are growing; you have groups that no longer need you!

The beauty of the Joy to Live compensation plan is you can do both and eventually everyone succeeds! Evenstrongandbrave those who do nothing will eventually share how they are earning more than it costs once that is happening. Learning to do both has the trifecta happen sooner. Once I saw the Joy to Live policy guide, the compensation plan and the product lines cost, I saw how anyone would eventually earn more income than their cost.

The best part is everyone has the same amount of time! The time put into the one essential earning activity is the weekly inventory and without inventory no ‘business’ lasts long.

This is simple. Every ten hours you must talk to people, to suspects, who are not in your business at least 80% of your time. Eight hours sharing and talking with people every week is a minimum. That leaves two hours to plan, play social network games or look for a marketing system that ‘works better’ or studying the latest new traffic toy.

The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing…..80% of the time.

ONLY three things produce income in any opportunity.

ONE – Talk to people and ask them to agree to look at your offer.

TWO – For those who do look ask them to make a decision.

THREE – Teach those who enroll how to do ONE and TWO. Teaching by example works best.

doITdailyThere really isn’t any more to do.  Yes there are dozens of ways to do the first two but most people are marketing or selling a solution that doesn’t’ even work for them.  Keep it as simple as possible. Begin where you are and let me help you through the minefield.

Master the skills that work for you that produce results. Talk with new people daily or more often!  Discovering what people want and again we all want more income, more time to spend it on and real health is not difficult once you get back to being in grade school mode.

The second inventory item is a list of suspects that you learn how to grow daily.  All of us learned how to do this in kindergarten and most people stopped growing their list sometime during high school.

Goals? They are a great place to monitor your behavior but they don’t do the work. You do.

Leads? Useful if you know how to use them but if your friends and family won’t support you why would strangers? Again, start from where you are! I can help you here a lot!

Social Media? There are valuable places to add suspects to your list and may produce people who will look. However, it is unlikely it will work any better than going door to door, no matter what anyone says.  

Until you have mastered ONE, TWO and THREE above, everything else is avoidance.  The distractions we regretsallow are always a function of fear used to postpone the main thing… TALK to PEOPLE daily.

What do I do? I sponsored over thirty the first ninety days in JTL. Most are learning how to do the same. I will sponsor another thirty or more every ninety days going forward also.  If you want to find out how you can do this, reach out to me now. I promise I won’t sell you anything if you promise not to buy anything. Actually, all you will need is $33 plus S&H to begin. Everything else is included. You add your time to mine and sooner than you may imagine….

What is the Real Problem Earning Money from Home?

I spent the better part of a decade buying into the line, that it is time, money, skills or all three that stop people from earning money from home. The background to all three is that people are twoearstroublethe problem. When I realized every program I looked at was failure by design I changed my research. A few earn while the majority pay is the rule. UNLESS you know what you are doing, already have the money and leverage your time better than Saturn or Chronos the likelihood of failure working from home is at least 95% with all but one program on the planet today.  That means you must sort and sift for the few from the vast majority and blame the majority for one or more issues they cannot solve in the zero time allowed for being successful.


Whether it is training courses, marketing courses, coaching courses, time management courses and numerous others all of them place the onus for success on the individual.  It is time this myth ends and have the lies revealed.  There is no ‘system’ easy to do, that works for anyone, and lets everyone earn serious income fast or even in the next five to six months. If you read the terms and conditions for most offers you better have an attorney for a friend or be one.  If you are, you will agree that none of them offer the dream of real, perpetual, residual income for your grandchildren at all. Yes, it has happened but nearly as often as hen’s teeth.

What would work?

whatworksFor nearly thirty years, I have marveled at the difference between learning how to ride a bicycle and the way nearly everything else is taught.  Some of you believe it was motivation or peer pressure that was the driving force in learning how to ride.  Once you learn how to ride a bicycle you cannot go back to not knowing how to ride and your knowing how to ride provides no ability to explain, share or teach anyone in accomplishing it either. Essentially the steps are always the same. You must get on a bike, have help and put in enough time to ‘capture’ balance yourself.  The one feature lost on most of us is the bike works for everyone!   This same method is how I learned how to drive a car too.  Again, almost always some superior motivation is credited for why nearly everyone is successful learning how to drive a car.  I disagree. We all learned to drive in cars any normal person could drive with a little time and a little help.  Yes, the cars worked for everyone!  Any system that has a failure rate over 50 percent is by design!! You are not the problem!! When over half the people who attend college quit the first semester, never to return, that is a designed system feature.  Some people are still paying for loans for something they never received and you think it is your fault!

Most of us never ride a bicycle to win a race and most of us won’t drive a car fast enough to win stopa 500 mile race either.  What would a work-from-home program look like that everyone who participated could earn extra income regardless of who they were, what their skill level was, how much money they had or how much time they could put into the program.  You may believe it is not possible.  However, it is already in existence and like sharing how to ride a bicycle no explanation will get it done for you. You have to get in this one too. I can give you the clues to see it and I request you will take the time to investigate and then drive this program for yourself. 

First is the policy guide, terms and conditions. It is short, no law degree is required to understand it and no gotchas, no oh by the way or trap doors.

Second are the numerous products that really work at a price you can afford every month. They are cheaper the more you buy and the money back guarantee includes the shipping too.  Getting your health back is a remarkable extra benefit!

IWILLsucceedThird is a compensation plan that allows those who are willing to work to earn as fast as they desire and for those who are short on time and lack the willingness to work this includes a safe place to watch and eventually go to work or let the system work for you.  For those who do absolutely nothing, even those who do not buy product monthly, this system is for you.  As long as you buy a product during the month, you earn commissions from the matrix below you.  Yes, the matrix will grow slowly without your effort. A matrix only based on the efforts of others above you may take a long time.  However, eventually you will have people below you working and as long as you purchase you may earn as much as $100,000/month, even if you sponsor no one. If you choose to not purchase for a while that is all right too. You will not earn anything but once you return with a minimum $22 purchase, you begin earning from those in your matrix again.  This ‘membership’ is for a lifetime unless you specifically resign in writing.

Before you leave here are the highlights:

    ONLY $33.00 to start and just $22.00 per month!  [plus postage.]

    For the super serious and those with a huge following, there are other options.

    A 3×10 Forced Matrix with full compression.

    Nearly 99% retention after 3 years.

    Without Sponsoring Anyone, You Can Earn Up To $100,000.00 Per Month!

    25% – 100% Matching Bonus on All Personal Referrals! PLEASE Do the Math!

    Growing In 22 Countries! 

    90%+ monthly reorder rate on great products means true residual income is possible.

    Complete marketing system included at no cost ever for those in our group.

    Free 500+ page eBook on the causes of over 200 illnesses and their prevention.
