Make a Splash!

Yesterday I attended the National Achievers Congress 2017 in Portland Oregon, with six speakers, all millionaires, with the calling card being Tony Robbins. 

"Find your nitch," the millionaire's told us.

"Rich people believe they can CREATE their lives."

"If you focus on Crap, you will become a crap magnet."

Expand your mind, Robert Herjavec of TV's Shark Tank told us. "You have to believe you can get there." 

You might have noticed that none of the Shark's have fancy degrees, People don't care, said Robert, they only care about what your results. 

"On the days when you see more problems than opportunity. Failure is in your body."

Say instead, "I'm wonderful. My job is to be a source of joy."—Robert H.

Said Gary Vaynerchuk::

  • Figure out what works for you. 
  • Find your voice, 
  • Give value. 

Steven Sitkowski's: "Keys to success:"

  • A burning desire
  • Specialized knowledge
  • Ability to take action

Notice that everybody wants to teach you.  You need to learn how to blog, to write, to learn grammar, have an editor, (Yep, I need one), and someone wants to sell you a Bootcamps on about every imaginable subject.  

Whoops, am I getting cynical? 

We can't blame people for wanting to make a living. I also believe that people, ingenious creatures that we are who have evolved for two million years, ought to be able to figure out some of these things on our own. The model now, I've noticed, is give free information, free books, free videos, free U-tubes—for an email address, then ASK for that person to buy whatever it is they are selling. 

Here I do not intend to teach, but rather to share what I have gathered. It is a buffet table, and you put on your plate only what suits you.

Ignore the sheep eyes—unless, of course, you like sheep eyes.

I love it. 

For you entrepreneurial writers, I have a tidbit for you:

Write a book of 80 to 100 pages and use it as a selling tool. It can be a giveaway for your business, and better than a business card. 

It gives you authority and authenticity.

This is from Gary Robert, publisher of  Black Card Books.    

"Turn your expectations to appreciation and your life will change."—Tony Robbins
