Getting Pumped!Written by Mary Wilkey
"Hype, hype, hype, and more hype," I thought as I found a seat at this weekend's motivational seminar. "It makes my backside tired." Not being a "morning person" anyway, I was still groggy from having forced myself to roll out for fifty-mile trip on a dreary, rainy, foggy morning. To make matters worse, I'd overslept and gotten lost en route to Radisson Hotel at Cincinnati Airport.
"How in world does anyone get this pumped this early in morning?" was only thing rolling around in my sluggish brain. I found myself a cup of liquid energy and waited for "something" to kick in. It took a little while, but it really is just about impossible to sit in a room full of happy, enthused, smiling, jacked up people and remain lethargic for very long. I guess that's what it's all about, after all.
Then success stories began to filter into my brain and break my preoccupation barrier, and gradually, by degrees, inflation process began. Enthusiasm began to rear its energetic head, and adrenalin began to rush through this sixty-year old body. Sometime before noon I had become infected with spirit of it all, and by time meeting was over, I had been electrified—super-charged.
Called hubby on way home and decided we would eat out. My husband, I discovered, had been electrified himself—he's naturally bubbly anyway—we reinforced each other, pumping away all through meal, and we hardly noticed food we ate.
We had to part for a short while to tend to other business, and around ten o'clock we decided to watch a couple of short videos on a new opportunity. And after that we put in long video we'd been given, called "Time to Soar."
Wow! We couldn't turn it off, and by this time it was well after 1:30 in morning. We just kept watching it—four riveting speakers—one after another. And no hype! It was pure meat, and we ate it all up! And then we stayed up until after five o'clock talking about it!
M.B.A. - The Three Factors of SuccessWritten by Anita Foley
You will often hear it said that things come in 3’s. My Grandma used to say, “Good news, bad news, and blind mice all come in 3’s.” Well, she was right, and, over years, I have discovered 3 most important things needed to be successful.
I’ve found that Motivation, Belief, and Action (M.B.A.) are three factors that go hand-in-hand and are all needed to succeed with anything you do in life, including doing business online. To accomplish anything, you must not only be Motivated by your dream, but you must Believe you can accomplish it, and then you must Act.
Motivation begins with a dream or a desire. It may be for better working conditions, more money, a better house in a better neighborhood, a desire to travel and see world, play a musical instrument, learn a foreign language, prepare a fabulous feast, or whatever else your imagination can conjure up. Motivation is usually accompanied by enthusiasm. It sets your blood tingling, puts that fervent look in your eye and a smile on your face.
The old saying, “when student is ready, teacher appears” is often true when keen motivation is present. You suddenly become aware of things you were not aware of before. It seems everything you need is made available to you. Opportunity knocks, so to speak. When you are motivated, your enthusiasm leads to passion. You become passionate about your dream, and you can think of nothing else. That is what leads to second factor - Belief.
When you are passionate about your dream, you feel a strong belief in your heart that you will accomplish it. There exists a “knowing” that cannot be explained – you just know you will succeed. No one will be able to tell you otherwise. They may even think you’re a little looney. This is a good indication that you’re on right track.
When I think about this level of belief, I am reminded of time I interviewed for a job for which I had no background or experience. I was motivated by fact that I needed to make more money and I hated job I was doing at time. I really wanted job and believed that I could do it and that I’d be good at it. On interview, I portrayed such passion about position and my deep desire to do work that I was hired on spot. I “believed” my way into it.
