Anyone who has started a business or any other lifechanging thing has been told to find their "why." The purpose of it is to help motivate you on the days you don't want to take action towards your goal. We all have those days where we don't want to work out or write our blog or go to class or do any of the daily actions that lead to success. For those days where veggin' out in front of the tv sounds like so much more fun than what we're supposed to be doing, our why needs to be motivating enough to push us to do the sometimes not-so-much-fun stuff.


I agree that your "why" is super important and has to be really powerful to contend with a day on the couch doing nothing. 


Here's the mistake most people make with their "why."
They do it backwards!


I don't know why, maybe it's because society is very negative based, but most people build their why on what they want to eliminate. So many people create their why as "I want to quit my stupid crappy job" or something like that. They design it as something to escape from. The reason this is backwards, is because in the begining it works great. But what happens when you quit your stupid crappy job? Your "why" loses it's power


The best way to design your "why" is to make it about what you want in your life. Sure you want to quit your job, but why??? Is it to do something you love? Is it to spend more time with your family? Is it so you can travel or generate more income to become debt free? A strong "why" is built on what you want to bring into your world, because even after you've eliminated the suck from your life, that 'why' is still a driving force. 


My why is HUGE for me. Summed up, my "why" is I want to be financially & time free. I want the capability to travel & LIVE. I want to start a family & be able to stay home with them. I want to thrive!!! 


I reached a point where I was no longer comfortable with working all the time, Just to get by. My life consisted of work and home, because that's the only way I could ensure I could pay my bills. I couldn't live like that anymore. I want to have kids, but that wasn't even an option for me if I could barely support myself. I definintely couldn't afford time off to have a child or the childcare after I had to go back to work.It just wasn't the life I wanted. So, I figured out my "whys" I found a solution, & they drove me through those lazy days until I had results. Because they are the things that I want, they still drive me, because I don't want to go back to surviving. I want More!

Everybody has at least one dream. You know, that picture of how you want your life to be. The car, the house, traveling around the world, having a family, being debt free, getting that amazing job or even helping your parents. It doesn't matter what your dream is, it's just important that you have 1 or even 100.


Now here's my problems with dreams. 


I have found that dreams usually fall into 1 of 2 categories. 


Category 1 is the wish...I wish I would just win the lottery, I wish I had my own cooking show, I wish I was a spy. Here is why I'm not a fan of the wish. Most likely it's not gonna happen. A wish is a dream with no action to back it up. You can wish all day that you had a cooking show, buit if you do nothing, odds are no one is going to show up at your house & say we need you. We have the perfect show for you to host. Same goes for winning the lottery, but never buying a ticket, or being a spy. Sure, it looks cool on tv, but what skills do you have that would make that an option? 


Then there's category 2, the goal. Hands down my favorite. A goal is basically a dream supported by action. Take the cooking show or even the spy thing, they can be goals. For the cooking show, you could learn to cook, start a youtube channel, send in audition tapes. The actions are what makes it a goal. The spy thing might be a bit trickier, mainly because I only have tv & movies to work off of. But, I'm guessing you go to the CIA or FBI and apply for some type of job, learn some languages, take some classes, learn gun & self-defense stuff. Whatever you need to learn.


Basically, when people say "follow your dreams" they're refering dream category 2. Be inspired by your dreams then take the necessary action to make that your life.

I had a dream of working from home, quitting my crap job, and starting a family. I dreamed about it for years, I wished for it every day, but nothing changed. Then I turned my dream into a goal. I found a company that resonnated with me, I learned the skills to be successful, I started to grow my income, & the last just takes time.

Happy Independence Day!!


Since today is all about freedom, I wanted to know what freedom means to you. Is your life filled with freedom, or filled with people telling you what to do and when to do it?


My life used to be the later. I worked 6 days a week and even on my days off I usually ended up having to go in. I worked when I was sick, because I couldn't afford to lose any hours. I only visited my family every other year because that's how long it took me to save up for a plane ticket. Then I really didn't have any money to do anything while I was there. That's not my idea of freedom.


Then I made a decision. I was done missing out on my life. I knew there had to be another way, if I could only find it. I SEARCHED. I found some scams. I found some stuff I didn't understand. Then, I saw this video and I found Freedom.


Today is the first 4th of July I get to spend with my family instead of at work. We are grilling out and going to see fireworks. I can take the day off without losing money, because time doesn't equal money anymore. I have the freedom of an internet business that provides residual income. That means I can spend time with my family, I can travel, and the best part...I can do all that and not worry about how I'm going to pay my bills. How's that for freedom?

I have been to 2 company events so far. Before I went, I always wondered if the expense would be worth it. There's travel, accomodations, food, and of course the ticket. If you're anything like me, you started your own business because you were struggling to pay your bills. You don't have an extra few hundred dollars to spend just to celebrate the people doing really well. At least that's how I looked at it.


So, finally last October, I went to my first event. All I can say is WOW! I learned so much. Yes the leaders did speak onstage, but it wasn't just about how awesome they were. They talked about before they were doing well and how they got there. They shared what they focus on, what's working for them, they pointed out things I hadn't even thought about. That's a lot of knowledge you don't get anywhere else.


Then there's the other people. You get to meet so many people. Some have just had their first breakthrough and some are sprinting up that ladder. Guess what? They're more than happy to share how they're doing it. You meet new friends that you probably would never meet any other way. Have you ever heard that your income is the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with? Well, at events you meet millionaires, people earning 6 figures, and people who have already reached whatever your goal is. It expands your mindset. You have no choice but to grow.


Finally, there's the energy. Having that many people with the same vision in the same place creates an undescribable energy. There's a confidence because you can see all the people getting results. It makes it real. You have hundreds of people who believe in you, who are rooting for you to succeed. 


Events are totally worth it, because they change and grow your business

You know all those jobs you grew up being told you should go after? Most of those jobs aren't safe anymore. People are being layed off or down-sized. Companies are closing plants, factories, and even corporate departments. All of this is happening to save some money. 


There's a whole show about families that are having to downsize their entire lives. Cars, houses, private schools, and basically their daily life all disappears. They are in debt, can't pay their bills, some of the kids get teased at school. It's horrible. 


But then you look at network marketing, and the opposite is happening. People are paying off debt, they're travelling more, they are creating an opportunity to live life on their terms. I know so many people who now have their work schedule perfected into a couple hours a day. They don't work 40 hour weeks. When you start, you work your butt off, but then you learn how to leverage your time. That gives you time to do the things you want to do.


Imagine getting up when you want to. A relaxing morning, where YOU decide what you want to do and when you want to start working. Can you see yourself working while outside at the park or maybe the beach? Having the option to take a break to play with your kids while you're working. How about having lunch because you're hungry, not because someone decided this was your lunch break. Even better... how awesome would it be to go on vacation and still be generating an income. 


All these things are realities of internet business lifestyle. Are you ready to lock arms with us & start living?
