The Benefit Of A Mentor

The Benefit Of A Mentor

When I first got into network marketing, I saw other people making it look so easy and I thought, “Man I wish I had that kind of skill!”

The part I didn’t see was the falling down they did before gaining that skill.

It’s a natural learning process. Any time you start something you’re going to be the worst you’ll ever be at it because each time you do it again and again, you gain skill and get better.

Very few people in this world can just jump into something an almost instantly be an expert. And that’s the exact reason most people get such a huge benefit of a mentor to help them.

The benefit of a mentor is, you get their experience guiding you through the pitfalls and spills shaving your learning curve by years sometimes. Another big benefit of a mentor is they will push you to get back up, keep pushing forward, and try again even after you fail.

And I was just reminded of the huge benefit of a mentor while checking off another bucket list item.

KITE SURFING! (It’s way harder than I thought it would be but just as awesome I suspected)

After falling 20 times in a row, getting beat up by the ocean, having salt water flood my mouth and throat to the point I was water logged, I finally thought in my mind, “Man… I’m DONE!”

But having the benefit of a mentor there saying, “Alright, let’s go another time!” made me do it try again and this time I was determined to get up and ride. I could feel it this time, I WAS going to get up!

And you know what? I fell AGAIN! LOL

And it was hurting and burning and honestly, it kind of sucked. But I just told myself I’m going to follow my own training and even though I don’t want to, I’m going to keep going and keep trying.

I’m going to use the benefit of a mentor and take his coaching.

And finally, I got up!

Because I wouldn’t quit, I wouldn’t give up, no matter how bad I wanted to, I had an incredible experience and I was able to get up my first day trying only because I had the benefit of a mentor to guide me through the “how to’s”, and encourage me to not stop trying.

Find a mentor! Keep going! Even if you think you’re never going go to “get up” or make it, keep going and never, ever quit!

If one man or woman can do it, so can you…

And always seek to use the benefit of a mentor or a guide or a coach and take the training they offer!

Don’t try and do it on your own if you don’t have to…

Make your life a life with purpose and full of adventure!

How To Find Your Core Purpose In Life

How To Find Your Core Purpose In Life

First off, sorry about the wind noise. I’m on the beach at Turks and Cacaos and I recorded a couple videos for you here. One really great video after I just got done kite surfing but you can’t hear anything other than the wind. :-(

So at least in this one, you can hear the message and it’s such an important message about how to create your core purpose in life, I had to share this.

So many people ask me, “Matt, how have such boundless levels of energy?”

It’s really simple and I’m going to let you in on my secret.

The main reason I can just go, go, go, go, go is because almost all of the things I do are in direct alignment with my core purpose in life.

And if you haven’t figured out what your core purpose in life is, you gotta create it!

So here’s mine to give you an example:

My core purpose in life is to constantly grow myself to achieve Gods highest calling for my life. To seek out and experience peak adventures and experiences around the world. To make a positive impact on the lives of millions of people to leave a legacy of multi-generational love, success, wealth, and contribution for my family. And, to live life vicariously through myself!

And here’s a clue. When you decide what your core purpose in life is, it should give you goose bumps. It should powerfully inspire you and get you excited to want to live a life in alignment with your core purpose in life. Because you know if you do, you’re going to feel energized, charged up, and amazing every single day!

It should fuel you with boundless energy.

Your core life purpose should make you want to stay up late and get up early.

And you’ve got to have it in my mind and in your awareness to help guide your decisions so that your actions are congruent with that core purpose.

Here’s what I encourage you to do. Create your core purpose in life!

It’s really simple but don’t skimp on the time and effort in doing this.

Here’s one simple way to find your core purpose in life:

1. Break out a sheet of paper
2. And at the top of that sheet of paper write, “God put me on this Earth to…”
3. Fill in the blank
4. Keep writing until what you write strikes a chord in your heart so powerful it gives you goose bumps!

So there’s some homework. Go create your core purpose in life!

Make life an adventure!

Live A Life With Purpose

Live a Life With Purpose…

One of my greatest drives to is wake people up and show them how to live a life with purpose and passion and adventure!

There’s a huge difference in being alive and actually living. That’s why my signature line is “Make Life An Adventure!” because I believe that’s what life should be, an adventure.

Because when you look at you life as an adventure, and I mean all of it including the good, the bad and the ugly, you have no other option than to life a life with purpose and passion.

Whenever I do a talk from stage, I always ask people what their “dash” will look like. See, at the end of each our lives, there will be 3 things on our tombstone.

- The year you were born
- The year you died
- And the dash in the middle.

And that dash represents you life in it’s entirety. It represents whether you just did you time and made it through to the end or if you lived a life with purpose, passion, and adventure.

So I thought this Apple commercial was perfect for today’s motivational Monday.

You only get one shot at this adventure, find a way to live a life with purpose!

Here is the transcript from the commercial: (A great excerpt from the movie, Dead Poets Society)

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering – these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love – these are what we stay alive for.

To quote from Whitman, “O me, O life of the questions of these recurring. Of the endless trains of the faithless. Of cities filled with the foolish. What good amid these, O me, O life? Answer: that you are here. That life exists and identity. That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

“That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

What will your verse be?

Make your life a life with purpose and full of adventure!

How To End The Struggle With Success

How To End The Struggle With Success

It took me a long time to reach the levels of success I’ve reached. I was in a constant struggle with success in network marketing for years.

In fact, my struggle with success took me almost 6 years before I reached a full time income!

I had it in my mind that I would struggle with success a lot and I used to use that word all the time and I kind of wore my struggle with success like a badge of honor.

And I’ve got a lot of people in my organization who kind of have that going on as well. It’s like they take pride in the fact that they struggle with success. And it’s OK, we all have to go through struggle but here’s my advice to you.

Stop using the word struggle. Eliminate from your vocabulary. Act as if you don’t even understand the word struggle. Because the more you acknowledge it, the more you attract it. In other words, you get what you focus on.

What you focus on expands and every time you talk about how much you struggle with success, guess what you get more of? You get more struggle!!!

If you consistently make the word struggle a foreign word to you, it will actually become a foreign concept to you.

And you’re still going to have challenges. But when challenges come up instead of saying, Oh I’m about to go through more struggle” look at it like an adventure! It’s just part of life and it doesn’t actually have to be a struggle.

When you’re going through hell, it doesn’t have to be a miserable experience.

Eliminate the word struggle from your vocabulary and turn life into an adventure!

Make Life An Adventure!

Who To Work With To Grow Your Network Marketing Business

Who To Work With To Grow Your Network Marketing Business

If you want to grow your network marketing business, you have to know who to work with.

One of most common mistakes people makes is one you might be making also while working to grow your network marketing business.

You work with the people who need it instead of the people who deserve it.

Here are some thing to remember about who you work with if you want to grow your networking marketing business:

  • You work with the greedy not the needy
  • You work with those who deserve it not who need it
  • Potential doesn’t pay you bills, production does
  • Focus almost all of your effort on the people who are producing

The best way to look at this if you really want to grow your network marketing business is to, always pour gas on the fire!

Spend your time with and train the people who are producing. Your time is better spent recruiting producers rather than re-training potential.

How To Find Your Greatness Within

How To Find Your Greatness Within

What matters to you? I want you to think about that question and really try to find clarity when you answer it.

A lot of people will answer it with “success” but what is success? What success means to me may be something entirely different than what it means to you.

To some it means money, to others it means freedom, to others it means status and significance, and to others it may mean simplicity. There are as many different definitions to success as there are people on this planet but one thing we can all agree on is, success comes from achieving, creating, or acquiring something that matters to you!

And to do that, you have to find the greatness within yourself.

See, the greatness within yourself isn’t something that you can obtain through external sources. It’s not something that comes to you through magic. The greatness within yourself is something that you un-cage through becoming the person who has the ability to create what they want in life.

You don’t get from life what you want, you get from life what you are and if you want all of the great things that matter to you, you MUST unlock the greatness within yourself to get them.

So what matters to you? And more importantly, what do you have to transform in order to access the greatness within so that you can get it…

How To Collect The Decision In Network Marketing

How To Collect The Decision In Network Marketing

I wanted to do a quick training fresh off a 3-way call to go over how to collect the decision in network marketing.

I just did something on this call that I think is really important to do that I think most networkers don’t do to collect the decision in network marketing, either face to face or on a 3-way call.

So here’s what happened. She had a couple of questions with some objections about not having enough time, and a couple other objections and we handled those.

Then I said, “Alright are you ready to get started?” (Step 1 in how to collect the decision in network marketing, ASK for it)

And her response was, “Let me think about it, I’ve got a couple of things I need to consider…”

So I kind of measured the temperature of the call and it was a pretty friendly call so I gave her a little bit of space.

So then I said, “Well tell me this. I know sometimes “I’ve got to think about” it is a polite way of saying no. Do you really need to think about it or is it just a polite way of saying no?”

Now here’s the real trick on how you collect the decision in network marketing.

I aced, “How long do you need to think about it until you can give us a firm decision?”

Then ask for a specific date and time.

And then just confirm, “So 2 o’clock on Saturday my guys gonna call you and you’ll have a firm yes or no right?”.

And here’s the lesson on how to collect a decision in network marketing.

BAMFAM: Book A Meeting From A Meeting

If you get someone who’s gotta think about it, set an appointment with the specific intention to collect a decision!

Living A Fulfilling Life

Living A Fulfilling Life

If you’d have asked me if I would ever cage dive with Great White sharks, ride camels around the Pyramids in Egypt, do the highest bungee jump in the world, or any of the other of the amazing adventures I’ve experience in my life when I was a kid, I probably would have looked at you like you were crazy.

Now I’m doing the longest zip line in the world and I thought it was a great time to remind about something you already know.

There is a HUGE difference between being alive and actually living what most would consider living a fulfilling life.

Every person, when they reach the end of their life, is going to look back and analyze whether or not they spent there time living a fulfilling life or not.

Living a fulfilling life really isn’t that hard to do. Make a bucket list of a couple hundred things you believe would be classified as living a full filing life and start checking them off!

Make your life an amazing adventure full of fun, excitement, fulfillment, passion, and joy by living versus just doing the time being alive.

And if you’re thinking to yourself that I must be crazy like I would have thought you were if you asked me if my life would turn out how it has, remember that I thought that way once upon a time also.

But I proved myself wrong and I am living a fulfilling life, an amazing life, and a life full of epic adventures so why can’t you?

The truth is, YOU CAN! You just need to decide to do it.

The Dissection of Leadership

Leadership Dissected

I posted this video in 2009 and it’s just as awesome today as it was then.

This video narrates and dissects the process of what’s happening within this leadership and importance of the roles of everyone involved and explains how even following is a very important form of leadership.

This is directly from http://sivers.org/ff:


 

If you’ve learned a lot about leadership and making a movement, then let’s watch a movement happen, start to finish, in under 3 minutes, and dissect some lessons:

A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous. But what he’s doing is so simple, it’s almost instructional. This is key. You must be easy to follow!

Now comes the first follower with a crucial role: he publicly shows everyone how to follow. Notice the leader embraces him as an equal, so it’s not about the leader anymore – it’s about them, plural. Notice he’s calling to his friends to join in. It takes guts to be a first follower!

You stand out and brave ridicule, yourself. Being a first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader. If the leader is the flint, the first follower is the spark that makes the fire.

The 2nd follower is a turning point: it’s proof the first has done well. Now it’s not a lone nut, and it’s not two nuts. Three is a crowd and a crowd is news.

A movement must be public. Make sure outsiders see more than just the leader. Everyone needs to see the followers, because new followers emulate followers – not the leader.
Now here come 2 more, then 3 more. Now we’ve got momentum. This is the tipping point! Now we’ve got a movement!

As more people jump in, it’s no longer risky. If they were on the fence before, there’s no reason not to join now. They won’t be ridiculed, they won’t stand out, and they will be part of the in-crowd, if they hurry. Over the next minute you’ll see the rest who prefer to be part of the crowd, because eventually they’d be ridiculed for not joining.

And ladies and gentlemen that is how a movement is made! Let’s recap what we learned:

If you are a version of the shirtless dancing guy, all alone, remember the importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals, making everything clearly about the movement, not you.
Be public. Be easy to follow!

But the biggest lesson here – did you catch it?

Leadership is over-glorified.

Yes it started with the shirtless guy, and he’ll get all the credit, but you saw what really happened:

It was the first follower that transformed a lone nut into a leader.

There is no movement without the first follower.

We’re told we all need to be leaders, but that would be really ineffective.

The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow.
When you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first person to stand up and join in.

Objections in Network Marketing – “I don’t want to make money off other people…”

Objections in Network Marketing

How To Overcome The Objection, “I don’t like making money off other people…”

There are many objections in network marketing. In fact, there are so many common ones, I did a series of shows dedicated to helping you handle objections in network marketing.

One of the more common objections in network marketing I hear is, “I don’t like to make money off other people…”.

When someone tells me that, the first thought in my mind is the reality of how things work is this.

If you’re not OK making money off other people, someone else is always going to make money off of you.

Your boss is always going to make money off of you.

The owner of you company is always going to make money off of you.

And the difference is, in the corporate world, you’re never going to have the opportunity to make more money than your boss. Their incentive is to pay you just enough so that you won’t quit!

In network marketing, people you enroll can actually make more money than you! Plus, the incentive is to get them making as much money as possible unlike the corporate world.

So it’s not you making money off of other people, it’s you helping other people make money!

And if someone truly is opposed to making money off of other people, network marketing is the PERFECT profession for them to be in!

So there’s one more of the objections in network marketing and some new perspectives to handle it.
