Skills or Beliefs: Which Matters Most to Your Business?
Skills or beliefs; this may well be another example of the age-old "chicken or the egg" dilemna. I tend to side more strongly with beliefs. I'll give you a story to illustrate why.
I've always admired eagles. They're graceful predators that command the skies...usually. But how many times have you witnessed a situation like this?
One day I was watching a mating pair of eagles circling overhead. I was in awe of their grace, beauty and strength. Then I noticed two other much smaller birds, sparrows perhaps, giving chase.
The sparrows circled quickly, dove at the eagles' heads, then rose quickly to circle again and make another dive. Over and over. The eagles managed maneuver after maneuver to evade the attacks by the sparrows. Gradually the eagles moved off, finally disappearing into the distance. The sparrows returned to their nest and eggs or babies (no doubt).
What just happened? Because sparrows are smaller and more agile than hawks, and can more easily position themselves for attack, their self-confidence is strong. Because sparrows are less fragile than hawks, and do not fear feather damage to the same degree, their self-confidence is strong. Because sparrows are quicker than hawks, so they can more easily retreat if they have to, their self-confidence is strong. And because their need was greater, they succeeded.
I'm not saying skill isn't important. If those sparrows didn't know how to fly, or didn't know how to use their physical advantages, they wouldn't have succeeded. But I do believe that the deciding factors were self-confidence born of skill and knowing their advantages, and need derived from the instinct to protect their young.
How does this translate to business? You must be HUNGRY to succeed, you must be CONFIDENT that you will, and you must have the SKILLS to apply with this DRIVE.
No one is born with business skills. Internet millionaire-ism isn't genetic. Read everything you can get your hands on; find someone who's been there, done that and follow where s/he leads; find a company, program, or system that is ethical, honest, and works, and STICK WITH IT as if your life depended on it. Want to know where you can go to get this kind of information, motivaton and inspiration?

Home business success is more than just a program or book. It's learning self-discipline, focus, determination, perseverance and fortitude that will carry you through the inevitable down times. It's knowing that the universe provides, abundance and security are your right, prosperity is flowing your way.
Armed with the knowledge and personal skills necessary, your self confidence will overflow. Remember the sparrows and the eagles: size ISN'T everything.

All Life Wishes to Reward Its Benefactors

Reaping the Fruit of Success in Life
One way to become more successful in your life is to look at the lifestyle and habits of people who are already clearly reaping the fruits of success in life and who are living and growing towards their unique God given potential. What are some common characteristics and behaviour that we can apply to our own lives to help us on our own personal journey towards excellence? I have spent many years studying this area, and have discovered that there are common principles and habits which successful people follow and see positive results many times over. Even people who have achieved great personal growth in their lives know the importance of having established life habits and daily motivation towards their personal goals. Here are three important keys to unleash personal growth.
Visualize Your Way to Success
Human beings are visual creatures. Our imaginations are powerful tools that can bring us to the brink of despair or create a wonderful new reality. This is because our subconscious responds to images whether they are real or imagined.
Work Life Balance: Work Life a Balancing Act
Australians are loosing their laidback, carefree reputation, as we continue to work longer hours, exercise less and neglect our leisure and family time.
The Best Test
I spoke to a group of salespeople in Kansas City last week as they kicked off their new team. It was exciting to see them get excited about making a difference through their work.
How To Get Out Of The Way Of Your Own Success
Success is something that happens all by itself once you've decided to have it happen and let go of the process. How many things in your life are you absolutely certain that you can be successful at? Take some time to answer this question because your answer will establish the upper limit of your success.
Want Better Outcomes? Check Your Perspectives!
In my work with clients, the issue of perspectives comes up quite often. Usually, I have to give my clients a quick refresher on what it is, and why it is pertinent to our discussion. Being good at choosing perspectives is so helpful that I thought it worthy of an article.
The #1 Way to Control Your Mind for Success!
People say: "One can't help one's thoughts." But one can. The control of the thinking machine is perfectly possible. And since nothing whatever happens to us outside our own brain; since nothing hurts us or gives us pleasure except within the brain, the supreme importance of being able to control what goes on in that mysterious brain is patent. This idea is one of the oldest platitudes, but it is a platitude whose profound truth and urgency most people live and die without realising. People complain of the lack of power to concentrate, not witting that they may acquire the power, if they choose.
Goal Setting: Pops Proves Its Never Too Late
Pops first set the goal in high school, but when he graduated he thought he wasn't mature enough to pursue it so he enlisted in the U.S. Army.
The BIG Secret to Success in Anything You Do
There is one big "secret" to success that can help you achieve anything you want. It's the one skill that all ultra-successful people have. If you can master it, you can have or become anything you want... often in a very short amount of time! So what is this incredibly powerful skill? It is the ability to concentrate. In other words, the ability to focus all of your mental powers on one important task until that task is completed, and completed well.
Live the Dream
To achieve what you want, what you desire, needs a change in your thinking. You need to change your mindset. You need to visualise. By using this technique of visualisation you will actually put yourself into any given situation.
Build Rapport Through Buzzwords
What if I told you that you could be more influential and powerful and all you'll have to remember one simple thing? To persuade your people, all you have to do is: "Cook their favorite meal before they're hungry..."
Feng Shuei To Attract Money
The first thing that you need to do is get yourself a good compass and determine what is in the southeastern corner of your home. The Southeastern sector of your home governs both your cash flow as well as your faith in the idea that you will always be able to create money.

Get your act together
Tools for Constructing the Road to Success
Too many times in the pursuit of our dreams, we loose sight of the total picture and instead settle on a small piece of it. A job, any job, whether it is in the conventional job market or any one of a number of work from home ventures all require the same thing - people of vision.
Success Involves Ignoring Critics
Critics can destroy or inspire you. Your own self critic is often the most deadly critic of all. I was thrown out of the school choir at the age of 8. The teacher said someone was growling. She walked along the row and announced that I was the growler!
The Only Option is to Succeed
With the end of the year fast approaching, now is a great time to take stock of 2004. It is likely that your company set specific goals at the beginning of the year. As you review the past year, the question that must be asked is, "Have I achieved my goals? Has my company achieved the outcomes we set?" If your answer is yes, congratulations! If not, what stopped you?
Blessing The Money You Spend
A young girl opens a birthday card from her grand mother and folded inside the card is a crisp $100 bill along with congratulations and sincere wishes and hopes for happiness. A successful store rewards its customers who spend more than $20 with a bonus service or gift. A woman I know writes hearts on her cheques and blesses her creditors each time she makes a payment on a loan.
The Opportunity Clock
When I was in college, I heard someone say something that has been with me ever since. It was something that demonstrated to me a positive attitude and the choice to take something that most people dread, and change it into a motivating factor.
Trusting The Higher Self
As very few people achieve enlightenment in one lifetime, as the both the subconscious mind, which has a drive to destroy and the conscious mind are very resistant to suggestions from the Higher Self. This is because messages from the Higher Self mostly manifest as gut feelings and hunches and the "orders" often are often perceived by the conscious mind to be irrational or impossible to attain. However, if you live by the belief that we live in a universe where there is a supply for every demand than nothing in theory nothing is impossible to attain. When you find yourself in a hopeless situation I find repeating the mantra "With God all things are possible. Spirit is never too late!"
