The Subconscious Mind…

the-power-of-your-subconscious-mindThe subconscious mind consists of a field of consciousness, in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn.  Everything which man creates begins in the form of a thought impulse.  Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in thought.

Understanding the importance of the subconscious mind must first come from the understanding of its functionality.  Once we understand the functionality of the subconscious we can learn how to re-program it.

CONSCIOUS MIND VS. SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

  • CONSCIOUS- Our conscious mind is our “thinking mind” our “educated mind” this is where our intellect comes from.  The conscious mind has the ability to “choose,” the ability to “accept” or “reject” and also the ability to “originate.”  This is ultimately our “LOGIC” state of mind.
  • SUBCONSCIOUS- Our subconscious mind cannot determine the difference between that which is real or what is imagined.  The subconscious must “accept” it cannot “reject” and is ultimately known as our “EMOTIONAL” state of mind.

THE POWER OF THE CONSCIOUS & SUBCONSCIOUS

  • CONSCIOUS- In one second of thought the conscious mind triggers and stimulates 2,000 neurons in your brain.
  • SUBCONSCIOUS- In the same one second of thought the subconscious mind triggers and stimulates 4,000,000,000 neurons in your brain.  Yes that’s right, 4 BILLION.

Now that we understand the power of the mind lets look at why people fail in life and why people succeed.  It realistically comes down to the subconscious mind, and the alignment of the two working together.

If we go back to our infancy, (before conscious thought is developed) we absorb information like a sponge.  The information we absorb into our subconscious mind creates a paradigm and eventually determines who we become.  Think about it, when we are young we believe we can become anything in the world until we are told to “get real.” We are taught what to think and this creates a paradigm in our subconscious.  That paradigm mostly consists of; go to school, get good grades, and get a safe secure job.

Look at the reality of this paradigm; 95% of the population control 5% of the money they are either employed or self-employed.  The other 5% control 95% of the money and they own systems, have MSI’s (multiple sources of income), or they make money with their money (Investors).  The only thing that separates the 95% from the 5% is information and the re-programming of the subconscious.  It’s almost as if we have to learn how to unlearn in order to re-learn.   We have to let go of all that subliminal programming that created the paradigm and reprogram our subconscious with positive information, success principles, and we need to learn from the people who have the results in life that we want.  These steps will create a new paradigm in the subconscious mind and because the subconscious has to accept it as fact and truth we believe once again that we can become anything we want and create the lifestyle we dream of.

Conceive in your mind who you want to become and visualize it to the extent of experiencing the feelings of what it would be like to become that person.  Close your eyes, picture the reality of living that life and do it often.  This will eventually create a belief, a solid 100% conviction that you can and will actually become exactly that person you are visualizing.  Now, if you do this consistently throughout the day you will program your subconscious into accepting that you actually are this person.  Your conscious will be forced to align itself with this belief and this new paradigm and you will in fact become exactly who you want to be.

LEAD WITH YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS AND ALIGN YOUR CONSCIOUS

“Great men are they who see… that thoughts rule the world.”

ralph-waldo-emerson-greatest-accomplishmentThe power of thought is far greater than how most of us perceive.  Roughly 98% of the population would rather drift through life than to actually think for themselves.  The most powerful conclusion that all of the top philosophers and success coaches are in 100 percent agreement with is that we simply “Become what we Think About.”  Another way to understand this is “Thoughts Become Things.”  According to one of the greatest thinkers of all time,

     “Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.  No hope so bright but is the beginning of its own fulfillment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we look at our state of economy, and the immense decline that is occurring it is very safe to say that the education model needs to be enhanced significantly.  We have become a nation of Dependency, a nation where everyone is dependent on government aid and employment.  It is not our fault this shift occurred long ago, it is what we are taught.  Looking at the three systems of schooling, we can see the shift that needs to take place in order to restore the roots of free-thinking Americans.

Education System #1 – Conveyor Belt Education

This model of education tries to prepare everyone for a job, any job, by teaching people “what” to think.  This includes rudimentary skills designed to fit them to function in society.  Most public schools are conveyor belt schools, though there are many excellent teachers in the public schools who use leadership methods.

Education System #2- Professional Education

From apprenticeship and trade schools to law, medical and MBA programs–which creates specialists by teaching them “when” to think.

Education System #3- Leadership Education

This system teaches students “how” to think and prepares them to be leaders in their homes and communities, entrepreneurs in business, and statesmen in government.

For the purpose of this post I am going to be elaborate on the Leadership Education Model.  The three primary goals of the leadership education model are:

  • First, its purpose is to train thinkers, leaders, entrepreneurs and statesmen–individuals with the character, competence and capacity to do the right thing and do it well in business, government, church, school, family, entertainment, research and other organizations.
  • Second, to perpetuate freedom, to prepare people who know what freedom is, what is required to maintain it, and who exert the will to do what is required.

These two goals are accomplished by the third:

  • Third, teaching students “how” to think.  Those who know how to think are able to lead effectively and are able to help society remain free and prosperous.  Those who know only “what” to think or “when,” no matter how valuable their contributions to society, are not capable of maintaining freedom or leading us to real progress without additional leadership skills.  The success and perpetuity of our “American way of life” depend upon Leadership Education.   (Thomas Jefferson Education- Oliver DeMille)

Obviously when we look at our country it is very clear to see what we are lacking… LEADERSHIP!  Have you ever heard the saying “If it is to be, it’s up to me?”  Well, I strongly have to voice my opinion on this issue…  “I LOVE MY COUNTRY, AND I LOVE FREEDOM” I will do whatever it takes to maintain it.  I will commit my life to educating the lives of each individual in my sphere of influence, I will help people understand that if they just THINK and THINK correctly that they can and will WIN in life!  There are people who win in the best economy and people are winning in the worst economy this is because Thoughts Become Things!  If we are taught “HOW TO THINK” we can and will raise up a new generation of thinkers to restore our “Founding Ideals” and will ultimately see a Leadershift.  I COMMIT TO DOING MY PART, WILL YOU COMMIT TO DOING YOURS???

God Bless, Cory

DECISION – By Bob Proctor

decisionDECISION

BY BOB PROCTOR

There is a single mental move you can make which, in a millisecond, will solve enormous problems for you. It has the potential to improve almost any personal or business situation you will ever encounter … and it could literally propel you down the path to incredible success. We have a name for this magic mental activity … it is called DECISION.

Decisions, or the lack of them, are responsible for the breaking or making of many a career. Individuals who have become very proficient at making decisions, without being influenced by the opinions of others, are the same people whose annual incomes fall into the six and seven figure category. However, it’s not just your income that is affected by decisions; your whole life is dominated by this power. The health of your mind and body, the well being of your family, your social life, the type of relationships you develop … all are dependent upon your ability to make sound decisions.

You would think anything as important as decision making, when it has such far reaching power would be taught in every school, but it is not. To compound the problem, not only is decision-making missing from the curriculum of our educational institutions, up until recently it’s also been absent from most of the corporate training and human resource programs available.

So, how is a person expected to develop this mental ability? Quite simply, you must do it on your own. However, I think it’s important to understand that it’s not difficult to learn how to make wise decisions. Armed with the proper information and by subjecting yourself to certain disciplines, you can become a very effective decision maker.

You can virtually eliminate conflict and confusion in your life by becoming proficient at making decisions. Decision-making brings order to your mind, and of course, this order is then reflected in your objective world … your results.

James Allen may have been thinking of decisions when he wrote, “We think in secret and it comes to pass. Environment is but our looking glass.” No one can see you making decisions but they will almost always see the results of your decisions. The person who fails to develop their ability to make decisions is doomed because indecision sets up internal conflicts which can, without warning, escalate into all out mental and emotional wars. Psychiatrists have a name to describe these internal wars, it is ambivalence. My Oxford Dictionary tells me that ambivalence is the co- existence in one person of opposite feelings toward the same objective.

You do not require a doctorate degree in psychiatry to understand that you are going to have difficulty in your life by permitting your mind to remain in an ambivalent state for any period of time. The person who does permit it to exist will become very despondent and virtually incapable of any type of productive activity. It is obvious that anyone who finds themselves in such a mental state is not living; at best, they are merely existing. A decision or a series of decisions would change everything.

A very basic law of the universe is “create or disintegrate”. Indecision causes disintegration. How often have you heard a person say, “I don’t know what to do.” How often have you heard yourself say, “What should I do?” Think about some of the indecisive feelings you and virtually everyone on this planet experience from time to time.

LOVE THEM – LEAVE THEM

QUIT – STAY

DO IT – DON’T DO IT

GO BANKRUPT – NO DON’T

GO TO WORK – WATCH TV

BUY IT – DON’T BUY IT

SAY IT – DON’T SAY IT

TELL THEM – DON’T TELL THEM

Everyone, on occasion, has experienced these feelings of ambivalence. If it happens to you frequently, decide right now to stop it. The cause of ambivalence is indecision, but we must keep in mind that the truth is not always in the appearance of things. Indecision is a cause of ambivalence, however it is a secondary cause, it is not the primary cause. I have been studying the behavior of people who have become very proficient at making decisions for over a quarter century. They all have one thing in common. They have a very strong self-image, a high degree of self-esteem. They may be as different as night is to day in numerous other respects, but they certainly possess confidence. Low self-esteem or a lack of confidence is the real culprit here. Decision makers are not afraid of making an error. If and when they make an error in their decision, or fail at something, they have the ability to shrug it off. They learn from the experience but they will never submit to the failure.

Every decision maker was either fortunate enough to have been raised in an environment where decision-making was a part of their upbringing, or they developed the ability themselves at a later date. They are aware of something that everyone, who hopes to live a full life, must understand: Decision-making is something you cannot avoid.

That is the cardinal principle of decision-making. DECIDE RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE WITH WHATEVER YOU’VE GOT. This is precisely why most people never master this important aspect of life. They permit their resources to dictate if and when a decision will or can be made. When John Kennedy asked Werner Von Braun what it would take to build a rocket that would carry a man to the moon and return him safely to earth, his answer was simple and direct. “The will to do it.” President Kennedy never asked if it was possible. He never asked if they could afford it or any one of a thousand other questions, all of which would have … at that time … been valid questions.

President Kennedy made a decision … he said, we will put a man on the moon and return him safely to earth before the end of the decade. The fact that it had never been done before in all the hundreds of thousands of years of human history was not even a consideration. He DECIDED where he was with what he had. The objective was accomplished in his mind the second he made the decision. It was only a matter of time … which is governed by natural law before the goal was manifested in form for the whole world to see.

I was … just hours ago … in an office with three people. We were discussing the purchase of shares in a company. I was selling, they were buying. After a reasonable amount of time, one of the partners asked me when I wanted a decision. I replied, “Right now.” I said, “You already know what you want to do.” There was some discussion about money. I pointed out that money had nothing to do with it. Once you make the decision you will find the money … every time. If that is the only benefit you receive from this particular message on decision-making, burn it into your mind. It will change your life. I explained to two of these people that I never let money enter my mind when I am deciding whether I will or will not do something. Whether I can afford it or not is never a consideration. Whether I want to or not is the only consideration. You can afford anything, there is an infinite supply of money. All of the money in the world is available to you, when the decision is firmly made. If you need money, you will attract it.

I am well aware there are any number of people who will say that is absurd. You can’t just decide to do something if you do not have the necessary resources. And that’s fine if that is the way they choose to think. I see that as a very limiting way of thinking. In truth, it probably is not thinking at all … it is very likely an opinion being expressed that was inherited from another older member of their family who did not think either.

Thinking is very important. Decision makers are great thinkers. Do you ever give much consideration to your thoughts? … how they affect the various aspects of your life? Although this should be one of our most serious considerations, for many people it is not. There is a very small select few who make any attempt to control or govern their thoughts.

Anyone who has made a study of the great thinkers, the great decision makers, the achievers of history, will know they very rarely agreed on anything when it came to the study of human life. However, there was one point on which they were in complete and unanimous agreement and that was, “We become what we think about.”

What do you think about? You and I must realize that our thoughts ultimately control every decision we make. You are the sum total of your thoughts. By taking charge this very minute, you can guarantee yourself a good day. Refuse to let unhappy, negative people or circumstances affect you.

The greatest stumbling block you will encounter when making important decisions in your life is circumstance. We let circumstance get us off the hook when we should be giving it everything we’ve got. More dreams are shattered and goals lost because of circumstance than any other single factor.

How often have you caught yourself saying, “I would like to do or have this but I can’t because…” Whatever follows “because” is the circumstance. Circumstances may cause a detour in your life but you should never permit them to stop you from making important decisions.

Napoleon said, “Circumstances, I make them.”

The next time you hear someone say they would like to vacation in Paris, or purchase a particular automobile but they can’t because they have no money, explain they don’t need the money until they make a decision to go to Paris or purchase the car. When the decision is made, they will figure out a way to get the amount needed. They always do.

Many misguided individuals try something once or twice and if they do not hit the bulls-eye, they feel they are a failure. Failing does not make anyone a failure, but quitting most certainly does and quitting is a decision. By following that form of reasoning, you would have to say when you make a decision to quit, you make a decision to fail.

Every day in America, you hear about a baseball player signing a contract, which will pay him a few million dollars a year. You should try to keep in mind … that same player misses the ball more often than he hits it when he steps up to the plate.

Everyone remembers Babe Ruth for the 714 home runs he hit and they rarely mention that he struck out 1,330 times.

Charles F. Kettering said, and I quote, “When you’re inventing, if you flunk 999 times and succeed once, you’re in.”

That is true of just about any activity you can name, but the world will soon forget your failures in light of your achievements. Don’t worry about failing, it will toughen you up and get you ready for your big win. Winning is a decision.

Many years ago Helen Keller was asked if she thought there was anything worse than being blind. She quickly replied that there was something much worse. She said, “The most pathetic person in the world is a person who has their sight but no vision.” I agree with Helen Keller.

At 91, J.C. Penny was asked how his eyesight was. He replied that his sight was failing but his vision had never been better. That is really great, isn’t it?

When a person has no vision of a better way of life, they automatically shut themselves in a prison; they limit themselves to a life without hope. This frequently happens when a person has seriously tried, on a number of occasions, to win, only to meet with failure time after time. Repeated failures can damage a person’s self- image and cause them to lose sight of their potential. They therefore make a decision to give up and resign themselves to their fate.

Take the first step in predicting your own prosperous future. Build a mental picture of exactly how you would like to live. Make a firm decision to hold on to that vision and positive ways to improve everything will begin to flow into your mind.

Many people get a beautiful vision of how they would like to live but because they cannot see how they are going to make it all happen, they let the vision go. If they knew how they were going to get it or do it, they would have a plan not a vision. There is no inspiration in a plan but there sure is in a vision. When you get the vision, freeze frame it with a decision and don’t worry about how you will do it or where the resources will come from. Charge your decision with enthusiasm … that is important. Refuse to worry about how it will happen.

Advanced Decision Making

We make advanced bookings when we fly somewhere – that is quite common. We make advanced reservations to eliminate any confusion or problems when the time arrives for the journey. We do the same with renting a car, for the same reason. Think of the problems you will eliminate by making many of the decisions you must make … well in advance. I’ll give you an excellent example. As I am preparing this message it is Ramadan, a time where all practicing Muslims fast. I was in an office yesterday in Kuala Lumpur and was asked if I would like a cup of tea or coffee. I replied that I would appreciate a cup of tea. The lady next to me was then asked if she would like a cup and she replied … “No, I’m fasting.” When she was asked, she did not have to decide whether she wanted anything or not. Whether she was thirsty or not was not a consideration. A decision had previously been made and her advanced Decision was well tempered with discipline.

The exact same concept works with a person when they are on a diet to release weight. Their decisions are made in advance. If they are offered a big slice of chocolate cake, they don’t have to say, “Gee, that looks good … I wonder if I should.” The decision is made in advance.

I made a decision a long time ago that I would not participate in discussions of why something cannot be done. The only compensation you will ever receive for participating in or giving energy to that type of discussion is something you do not want. I always find it amazing at the number of seemingly intelligent people who persist in dragging you into these negative brainstorming sessions. In one breath these people tell you they seriously want to accomplish a particular objective. And, in the next breath, they begin talking about why they can’t. Think of how much more of life they would enjoy by making a decision that they will no longer participate in that type of negative energy.

The humanistic psychologist, Dr. Abraham Maslow who devoted his life to studying self actualized people, stated very clearly that we should follow our inner guide and not be swayed by the opinion of others or outside circumstances. Maslow’s research showed that the decision makers in life had a number of things in common; most importantly, they did work they felt was worthwhile and important. They found work a pleasure, and there was little distinction between work and play. Dr. Maslow said, to be self-actualized you must not only be doing work you consider to be important, you must do it well and enjoy it.

Dr. Maslow recorded that these superior performers had values, those qualities in their personalities they considered to be worthwhile and important. Their values were not imposed by society, parents or other people in their lives. They did make their own decisions. Like their work, they chose and developed their values themselves.

Your life is important and, at its best, life is short. You have the potential to do anything you choose, and to do it well. But, you must make decisions and when the time for a decision arrives, you must make your decision where you are with what you’ve got.

Let me leave you with the words of two great decision makers, William James and Thomas Edison. William James suggested that, compared to what we ought to be, we are making use of only a small part of our physical and mental resources. Stating this concept broadly, the human individual thus lives far within his limits. He possesses powers of various sorts, which he habitually fails to use.

Years later, Thomas Edison said, and I quote, “If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”

By making a simple decision, the greatest minds of the past are available to you. You can literally learn how to turn your wildest dreams into reality.

Put this valuable information to use and recognize the greatness, which exists within you. You have limitless resources of potential and ability waiting to be developed. Start today – there’s never any time better than the present. Be all that you are capable of being.

**The Business of the 21st Century ** The Rules Have Changed**

tumblr_m68ghca57T1rok3l7o1_400The economy is in tatters; your job is in trouble–if you still have a job.  

     We live in troubled times.  The last few years have brought us a steady parade of fear and panic in the headlines, boardrooms, and kitchen tables across America.  Globalization, outsourcing, downsizing, foreclosures, subprime mortgages and credit default swaps, ponzi schemes, Wall Street fiascoes, recession… it’s just one piece of bad news after another.

During the first few months of 2009, U.S. company layoffs reached about a quarter-million per month.  As this is written in 2009, unemployment is at 10.2 percent and still rising, and underemployment (where your job stays in place but your hours and pay are drastically cut back) is even worse.  The rampant decline in gainful employment is a ravaging epidemic to which few are immune.  From executives and middle managers to administration employees and blue-collar workers, from bankers to retail clerks, all are at risk.  Even the healthcare industry, until recently considered a job-safe zone, is trimming away significant chunks of its workforce.

In a 2009 USA Today survey, 60 percent of Americans polled said they see today’s economic situation as the biggest crisis in their lifetime.

In the fall of 2008, a lot of people’s retirement portfolios suddenly lost half their value–or more.  Real estate crashed.  What people thought were their solid, reliable assets turned out to be about as solid as water vapor.  Job security is gone, a thing of the past.

     Of course, you already know all this.  But here’s what you may not know.  None of this is really news.  Sure, it took a major economic crisis for people to start waking up to  the fact that their livelihoods were at risk.  But your income didn’t at risk overnight–it was always at risk.

Most of the U.S. population has been living for years on the knife-edge precipice between solvency and ruin, relying on the next paycheck or two to meet each month’s expenses, typically with only a very thin cushion of cash savings–or more often no cushion at all.  That paycheck is called “trading time for money,” and during a recession, it is the least reliable source of income there is.  Why? Because when the number of employed people starts dropping, there is less disposable income in circulation to pay for your time.       (an excerpt from “Business of the 21st Century” by Robert Kiyosaki)

Ladies and Gentlemen, if you are still trading time for money in 2014 you are looking at a significantly upsetting future for yourself and your family.  The opportunities that are available to us today in terms of income diversification and residual cash-flow are outstanding.   The problem we face in our society today is FEAR, people are afraid of change, they are afraid of going against the system and beating it.  When we honestly think of a job as security it is the first terror barrier that we must conclude as FALSE.  After this drastic realization we begin to open our minds and look for a better way.

At this point in life we must re-educate ourselves and play by the new rules.  Learning is the key to lasting change in a dying society.  We must embrace the fact that we NEED to take our lives into our own hands and become who we are destined to be.  Educate “yourself” on finances, “yourself” on leadership, “yourself” on history, etc….  We need to create a movement of learning new information and we can bring large communities together and help them WIN!

If you need a crash course on finances and don’t know where to begin I’d recommend reading books like; “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” “Cash Flow Quadrant,” “Business of the 21st Century,” or even go through the “Financial Fitness Pk” from Orrin Woodward & Chris Brady.  If you need a crash course on Leadership I’d start by reading “Launching a Leadership Revolution” and “Leadershift” both of these book are phenomenal.  When it comes to politics study history yourself, study our founding fathers and how they thought and what they studied, study the sacrifices that were made so we can live in freedom, and study what it will take for us to maintain it.

It’s not to late to completely change your life, start today!  Make disciplined decisions on a daily basis and WIN!!!

God Bless, Cory

The Impossible DREAM is Just the Right SIZE…

It’s sad how 95% of our population will never be able to see this beautiful resort. Why? Well let’s think for a moment. Is it safe to say that we are living a life of our obligations vs. a life of our priorities? Looking at the 45 Year Plan published by the U.S. Department of Labor. It says that 95% of Americans will enter the work force between the ages of 18-22 and will head off into their professions, (Corporate America). Incomes will begin to increase until they flatline at the top of their pay-scale between the ages of 30-35. From this time forward the average increase in wage will be between 2-3%. Then we travel on out to the age of 65 when they say we can retire on 1/2 to 1/3 of the income we were making in our prime years. What a JOKE!!! Think about it. The cost of living is on a rapid rise of 10-12% per year. Let’s say that you are getting a 3% increase in your income every year, and the C.O.L. is only going up 10%. We’re still losing a minimal 7% buying power every year, and then they are going to cut our income in half when we retire? Then to top that off, the Baby-Boomers are going to be retiring within the next 20 years. That population bubble alone is made up of 75-80 million people. If you combine generation Y, generation X, and the generation under 20, that only makes up 25 million. It will be impossible to pay for the Baby-Boomers. Sorry America, there will not be retirement. It will be impossible for us to retire; we aren’t on the 45 year plan, we’re on the work-til-we-die plan. There is a way out, but we have to see it first. I’m talking about dreaming again, having vision. Let’s go back and think to the age of 9. We’re all former 9 year olds, agree? There wasn’t anything we couldn’t do–fireman, president, man on the moon–you name it; anything could of been done and nobody was going to get in our way. WHAT HAPPENED? I’ll tell you what happened to me. I was taught to go to school, study hard, get good grades, get a safe secure job, and that would determine my lifestyle. WRONG!!! I hit the age of 18 and started to share my dreams with everyone and the response I got was like a broken record saying, “C’mon Cory, GET REAL”. After hearing this over and over again I finally “got real”. The problem is very crucial right now because there is no such thing as “getting real” anymore. We have just shifted from the industrial age to the information age and there are new rules to follow. The only way to acheive success in today’s economy is to Define the lifestyle you want to live, DREAM, then Learn from someone who has the results we are looking for–it is then that we Do what they teach us. DEFINE>LEARN>DO=RESULTS. Now let’s think about this for a minute; if 95% of us are graphed on the U.S. DOL 45yr. Plan, what are the remaining 5% doing? Robert Kiyosaki explains this very well in his book titled Cash Flow Quadrant.  As you can see there are two sides of the quadrant. On the left side, 95% of the U.S. population is either Employed or Self-Employed. These are the lucky ones we see fall on the 45 Year Plan and as sad as it may seem, they only control 5% of the wealth. As we look over at the right side of the quadrant, the remaining 5%, the Business Owners and Investors are controling 95% of the wealth. Let me rephrase this in simple terms. On the left we have 19 people standing in line fighting for $1.00, and on the right side we have 1 person collecting $19.00 wondering why there is so much commotion going on in the other line– catch my drift? If you are Employed or Self-Employed, Kiyosaki says you are on a fixed income. They both have this in common. You are trading the most valuable asset you have–TIME–for a fixed dollar amount. If you are Employed, you are told when to go to work, how many hours you work, and the amount of money you will recieve. If you are Self-Employed, you are taking on all the risk, you are putting in more time for not always more money, and you are the last one to get paid if there’s even enough money left over. Now I’m not saying these people are dumb, these are very smart people– doctors, lawyers, accountants– but they can only get paid for the amount of time they put into their professions. TIME=MONEY. You can’t have both. The right side of the quadrant is obviously very different. I’m not necessarily going to talk about investing–there will be another time for that. Basically, if you want to be a successful investor, you would have to be able to play the game with $250,000.00, lose it tomorrow, and play the game again the next day without changing your lifestyle. That is not me and statistics tell me that’s not 95% of America either. I’m going to talk about a B-Business. People who have a B-type business develop a SYSTEM and develop PEOPLE, then they leverage the system to create an ongoing, passive, residual income. The SYSTEM generates the income. Take a look at Ray Kroc, the owner of the McDonald’s Franchise. Kroc was just an old milk shake machine saleman and he came across the McDonald’s brothers in California in the 1950’s. Franchising at this time was 7 votes out of the senate from being illegal, but Ray revolutionized it. Ray Kroc had a BIG DREAM. He was a visionary. He tried to go into business with the McDonald’s brothers but they didn’t see it like he did. You see, Kroc was an entreprenuer; an entreprenuer looks for a problem in something, figures out the solution to the problem, takes out the bad, then impliments the good. Kroc bought out the McDonald’s brothers, franchised McDonalds with a duplicatable system and then he taught people how to operate the system by investing his interest in the business owner to help them win–and in return, winning himself. Kroc said that he’d sell his franchise, and in return wanted 1 penny per hamburger. Kroc made 12 people millionaires before he became one but we of course know the rest of that story. In the time it takes me to type this whole post, the Kroc family is making millions of dollars. What if you could get a big dream like Kroc, a dream so big that nothing could get in your way? What if you then had the best opportunity in the world to take advantage of the biggest transformation of wealth in history… COULD YOU DO IT…

God Bless, Cory

LEAD FROM THE FRONT…

We are all born to lead. It’s time we stand up for our freedom and lock arms with one another. America 2012 doesn’t dream anymore. We need to restore our dreams in a dying society. America needs us to lead from the front. We need to take action into our own hands. We need to educate our communities on family values, on the freedoms our country was founded on. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness… Our lives are full of stress and pain, the liberty is being stripped away, and how can anybody pursue happiness when the only thing they are pursuing is employment. WAKE UP AMERICA. LEAD FROM THE FRONT!!!!!

God Bless, Cory

Positive Attitude!!!

Winston Churchill-

“Success is going from failure to failure with a positive attitude.”

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference.”

Winston Churchill is one of the men that I have to say inspire me most in my life. Looking at the two quotes above, I want you to realize the one word they have in common, ATTITUDE! An attitude is a hypothetical construct that represents an individual’s degree of like or dislike for something. Attitudes are generally positive or negative views of a person, place, thing, or event— this is often referred to as the attitude object. People can also be conflicted or ambivalent toward an object, meaning that they simultaneously possess both positive and negative attitudes toward the item in question. definitions of attitude An attitude can be defined as a positive or negative evaluation of people, objects, event, activities, ideas, or just about anything in your environment. (Wikipedia)

Mr. Winston Churchill would definately agree that living life with a positive attitude is vital to your success. There are times in life where things upset us. We are all aware that these certain things are going to occur whether we want them to or not. The question we have to ask ourselves is, “How are we going to handle these situations when they arise?” I choose to have a positive attitude even when it’s nearly impossible. I know that nothing will ever be accomplished by being negative. Leaders walk through life with a positive attitude, they have to. When you are leading communities of people, you are being watched constantly. If there were ever a situation where you let your attitude get in the way, how would that reflect on your leadership ability? Now nobody is perfect by any means, and we all mess up from time to time, but maintaining a positive attitude through the good and bad will get you through the bad a lot quicker. Winston Churchill also said, “Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.” Going from failure to failure with a positive attitude is going to launch you into the most successful life you could ever imagine. You deserve your victory!!! GO OUT THERE WITH THE MOST POSITIVE ATTITUDE YOU ARE CAPABLE OF HAVING AND WIN!

God Bless, Cory

Get Out of the HOLE!!!

 

Look’s familiar huh? It’s our economy! 95% of Americans are on the buy now pay later program. Is it our fault? Whos fault is it? The truth of the matter is that the American population is very uneducated when it comes to finances. We practice instant gratification every single day, and sadly enough, we live on a check to check system. We see something on TV, that something might cost $30,000.00, but all we need to know is, “How much does it cost per month?” Can we afford the monthly payment? Instant gratification tells us “WE DESERVE IT” If you ask me we don’t deserve what we don’t earn. Go earn your new truck! Go earn your new car! Go PRACTICE DELAYED GRATIFICATION!!! There are three keys to wealth, ask any millionaire and they will agree 100%. 1. Long-term Vision, 2. DELAYED GRATIFICATION, 3. Power of Compounding. Let’s talk about the power of compounding. When you have the power of compounding working in your favor you are on the track to the millionaire lifestyle. When you have the power of compounding working against you “compound interest” you are in major financial trouble. It might not seem too bad at first, but as it compounds over time, and by the time you realize it BAAMM!!!! It’s too LATE!!! You have just dug yourself into the biggest financial crisis Americans are facing on a daily basis. Trust me! If you are in the hole, START DIGGING YOUR WAY OUT!!! If you are still above ground STAY THERE!!! America has a long bumpy road ahead, and the more debt our country is in, the worse of you will be by owning some of that debt. People don’t realize how bad it really is out there, its going to get worse before it gets better so START WITH YOU!!!

God Bless, Cory

POOR- P.assing O.ver O.pportunities R.epeatedly !!!

When is the last time you thought, “I’m Poor?” Sad but true a lot of us are thinking this way on a daily basis. It seems that we have created a culture with the “POOR ME” attitude. We all think of ourselves as a victim of the economy, and we just assume that that’s just the way it is and there is nothing we can do about it. We suffer paycheck to paycheck waiting for life to get better. The problem is, that it isn’t going to get better, it’s going to get worse. Guess why??? Cause YOU ARE POOR!!! Bold statment huh? What I meant to say was, “you are PASSING OVER OPPORTUNITIES REPEATEDLY!” America, time has come and time has gone. What are you going to do tomorrow that will enhance the quality of your life? The opportunities that are available to us today are “BY FAR” greater than they ever have been. The problem is that we are stuck in the mindset of “Industrial Age Thinking.” Sorry to have to be the one to tell you this but, “THE INDUSTRIAL AGE IS GONE,” those jobs that are going over seas are NEVER coming back. We have rapidly shifted into the information age and with that comes enormous OPPORTUNITY! DON’T MAKE THE MISTAKE AND MISS OUT ON THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS BEING MADE IN THE INFORMATION AGE!!!! FIND YOUR SHIP, AND SET THE SAIL!!!!

God Bless, Cory

LIFESTYLE

There are a lot of paths in life that we may choose. We all have our own dreams and aspirations that make us thrive. When we can come to the understanding within ourselves that we create our own reality, our dreams tend to come to fruition. We hear things like “life is what you make it” but we don’t seem to make it what we want. Instead most of us will work 40hrs per wk, for 40yrs of our life, to retire on 40% of our income. Is this the American Dream? It is sad that 95% of us live our lives based on our obligations vs our priorities. I have come to the realization that if you fight for your dreams bad enough it is impossible for you not to achieve them. When obsticles get in the way of our dreams, the majority of us will cower down to them. The reason behind this is that YOUR DREAM ISN’T BIG ENOUGH! Even when we have big dreams the lack of belief will crush you also. Whatever your mind can concieve, if you believe it, you will achieve it! I have had the privlage the last few days to experience the California lifestyle. I’m not talking about the traffic or the crazyness, I’m talking about the beauty! It has been my DREAM for as long as I can remember to own ocean front property in California, someday soon I will buy a house there and make that Dream a reality, Why? I have envisioned it for so long that I have made it a reality in my sub-concious. You may read that last line and not understand so I will emphisize. Your concious mind triggers 2,000 neurons in a second of thought. We all know what a conscious thought is… basically logic. If we called our conscious thought logic, then why would I want my conscious mind leading me? I wouldn’t! Our sub-conscious, in that same second triggers 4,000,000,000 neurons, that’s right FOUR-BILLION!!!!! If we program our sub-conscious mind and learn how to use it, there is nothing that you will not be able to achieve. Your dreams will BECOME REALITY! How do you program your sub-conscious??? Pictures, who you surround yourself with, who you let speak into your life are all major factors. If you want to be a millionaire then BE ONE! Start today, walk like a millionaire, talk like a millionaire, act like a millionaire, eventually you will believe you are a millionaire and the money will catch up.. I challenge you ladies and gentlemen, DO WHATEVER IT TAKES! Do not be afraid to DREAM, conquer your obsticles and create the reality you want.

To Your Success, Cory
