How To Think As Big As You Really Are by: Hasheem Francis and Deborah Francis

We live in an environment where we have been conditioned to think small, simplify our lives and to overall expect and demand less from life. The world tells us that “whatever will be, will be” and that “fate” is in complete control of our destinies. So forget those big dreams, and forget striving for a better life. Be resigned with what you have.

But I am here to declare, “Don’t let the words of others limit your vision. Do and Be YOU!”

I once read somewhere, as an experiment, someone put two advertisements in the newspaper. Both were for the same job with the exact same job description, but one of them offered to pay a salary that was double the one of the other. Strangely, about ten times more people applied for the lower paying job. Yet, the world tells us that there is too much competition for the top spots in life. This experiment clearly disproves that. It’s NEVER ok to settle for an unsatisfying or unpleasant status quo. 

People are taught to think small. And that is why they fail. The size of our success is limited only by the size of our thinking. “If you let fear run through you unchallenged, it can prevent you from thinking productively. Big thinking rewards action: always has and always will.

You can have anything you want, but you have to believe that you can achieve it. There is no one who can hinder or stop the firm resolve of a determined soul. The problem with most people is that they believe that there isn’t enough to go around and so they must not take more than their fair share. But, money and success do not run out.  All things are possible to those who believe.

So many people feel trapped in their lives of tiny dreams, of getting by, of constantly craving more and yet thinking themselves undeserving of more. Is this how you want to live your life? Open your mind, your imagination, expand the size of your thinking and your drive for success and get to work. Will there be challenges? Absolutely.  A detour is not a change in the destination. It’s just an alternate route to get there. Keep going! Will people doubt you? Absolutely. When people doubt you, just say: “Father forgive them for they know not what they do. And when you prepare my table in the presence of my enemies, make sure they get the best seat in the house.” Think big and make those dreams happen!

Developing the Power of Belief in Yourself

Believing in yourself is essential toward achieving personal success. Without self-belief, we tend to make poor decisions based on self-doubt and fear rather than what is best for us. These decisions may lead to self-destructive behaviour such as working at a job you hate because you believe you can not find a better job, staying in a bad relationship because you believe you do not deserve a better one, and so on and so forth. If you do not believe whole-heartedly in yourself, you will not allow yourself to pursue success.

  1. Visualize success, not failure. Whether at work or at home, train yourself to substitute success thinking for failure thinking. When put in a competitive situation, think “I am equal to the best” not “I am inferior to everyone else. Let the “I Will Succeed” mentality overwhelm the negativity in your mind. Visualizing success conditions your mind to create ways to produce success. Conversely, visualising failure does the exact opposite.
  2. Be your own biggest cheerleader. Look at yourself in the mirror daily and remind yourself that you are better than you think you are. Success does not require super powers or super intellect. Nor is it based on pure luck. Successful people are just ordinary people who believe wholeheartedly in themselves and in what they do. Never short-change yourself.
  3. Believe big. Dreaming big is an important part of achieving success for anyone. The size of our success is only limited by the size of our belief. Often people are scared to think big because they think they are incapable of or do not deserve success. But remember this, BIG Dreamers, BIG Thinkers achieve BIG Results. Do not limit yourself.

Develop the power of belief in yourself by following the three simple tips presented above and watch your life grow in abundance and prosperity. Remember, you can only be as much as what you believe yourself to be.

It Is Time To Slay the Procrastination Monster

Procrastination is a monster that lurks in the lives of every single entrepreneur. It is the enemy of productivity, the number one cause of lost opportunities, and the ultimate killer of momentum.

Therefore, to be able to effectively control your activities and make every second count, it is vital for you to slay that procrastination monster!

Like all other important activities worth doing in life, slaying the procrastination monster is something that requires a huge amount of discipline and willpower, especially at the start.

The master key to doing that, however, is pretty simple. It is to simply start the day doing the activity you dread most. In self-help guru Brian Tracy’s words, “Eat That Frog!”

The rationale behind this method is that once you are done with the most dreaded activity, you would feel such a sense of accomplishment and invincibility that you know nothing else can stop you. You will also gain a huge amount of momentum that will leave you rolling over the rest of your daily activities without delay.

Instead of slaying many procrastination monsters all throughout the day, all you have to do is to slay the king at the start of the day, and the rest of the procrastination minions will automatically diminish in power, or even disappear altogether, making your day much more pleasant, with a much clearer sense of direction and focus.

However, do note that this activity does need some getting used to, as I believe there are people who have successfully slain the procrastination monster and ended up feeling traumatized about all the time they have lost during their life.

Do not underestimate the power of this skill due to its simplicity. Simplicity is where beauty resides! Once you start getting the feel of how to slay that procrastination monster, you will start shaving hours off unwanted shuffling and deliberating, and finally start getting things done in the fastest and most effective manner!

The True Value of A Mentor

A mentor is considerably like it seems, a leader who helps a person develop into the leader that they are destined to be.  A mentor can successfully challenge and empower you to get your life, business, health and finances in order. Some people do not fully understand how much they could overcome with the help of a mentor who traveled the journey and have succeeded. “Do You Want A Coach Or A Mentor? A Coach Knows The Game By Observation. A Mentor Knows The Game By Experience. A Mentor Has The Scars And Wisdom From The Experience Of Playing The Game.”– Hasheem Francis

Being a mentor is considerably more than just listening to problems and permitting one to cry on your shoulder, that is what many people do not comprehend. A mentor has to know what questions to ask and what buttons to push to get a mentee out their slump. Mentors focus on solutions, while coaches focus on motivation.

It can be pretty essential that when you are searching for a mentor that you select a mentor who has the results in their own personal life. You cannot have someone who has never experienced wealth or is not in the wealth building process to tell you how to manage your money.  You want to make sure that that you are being mentored by a leader that has the experience within the field in which they are mentoring.

A mentor’s major goal is always to empower it’s mentee to become more. A mentor is not a personal cheerleader, if you are looking for a cheerleader, get a coach. A mentor’s focus is results and change.  A mentor is not to make you feel comfortable, because an experienced mentor know that success is outside your comfort zone. Understand that your mentor’s mission is to change your life in a good way. A mentor listens, empowers their client’s with tools, and guide their clients in the proper direction so that they get the results that they desire.

Although there are several different reasons why a person would choose to integrate a mentor within their lives, the most important reason is CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.

How To Create A Win-Win Situation with Negative People

We have all encountered people that complain about work, family, finances, politics, dining, sports, driving, and anything that does not go their way they want it to in their lives. There is never a silver lining. Everything happens to them because of the works of others. They know all the answers and will not stop until their beliefs are accepted. To communicate effectively, you need to think differently. When you have to deal with these type of people, use the following five ways to overcome their negative aura with positive energy.

1) Listen and don’t interrupt.

People of this nature need attention and must be heard. Interrupting them only sparks more fuel to the fire because they need to prove their point of view is right. Once they are interrupted, they tune out everything you have to say and any valid points you have will not be received. Instead of thinking how you can solve their problems, think how you can lead them to a solution.

2) Point out positive ideas in their stories.

Once they have stopped taking over the conversation, politely point out the positive points in their stories. A “look at the bright side”, “it could be worse”, or “you definitely mean well” phrase usually calms them down and makes them believe you are a proponent. After all, they are complaining or pushing the envelope only to gain some allies.

3) Keep discussions and emails succinct.

The less time spent entertaining them, the better for your positive mental energy. When conversations are short, it provides less time and energy for them to attack and hone in on negative remarks. Negative people painstakingly take the time to point out everyone’s flaws but their own. They never take the blame for anything but deflect it on others’ persuasive tactics or incompetence. Keeping interactions short limits the attacks on other people and their opportunities to “throw others under the bus”.

4) Make them feel good about themselves.

Usually negative people have self-esteem issues or are not happy with some aspect of their life. If at all possible, give three small complements and/or words of encouragement or reinforcement to temporarily satisfy the happiness they are yearning. These compliments can be related to anything – fashion, timeliness, weight loss, intelligence, great children, or athleticism.

5) Agree to Disagree

Every conversation or interaction does not have to end in an argument. Your parents were right; you should think before you speak to avoid miscommunication. Yes, you can agree there are many incompetent people with jobs. True, you can agree that another approach may have been better for the circumstance. Indeed, people can make mistakes and take advantage of what matters most to an individual because every one has different priorities in life. Being non-confrontational with a confrontational person calms the spirit, especially when they are caught off-guard with the phrase “Let’s agree to disagree”. Positive, calm-spirited individuals will tell you that it makes no sense to argue with a negative person because they must always have the final say and of course, must be right.

Life definitely deals everyone some challenges but it is not what happens that determines the outcome but the reaction and action put in place to overcome the circumstance. Too often, people dwell in the complaining stage and make themselves victims to some avoidable situations, eventually becoming a negative person. These five methods can help you keep your cool and remain peaceful and positive when dealing with these types of people.

How To Overcome Objections In Business

A common reason of failure for many sales professionals is because of their failure to overcome objection. Many new sales professionals get discouraged when a potential client says “no”. There is a saying in the sales industry: as sales professional you can hear 1,000 no’s, but all you need is one “Yes”. When dealing with a potential client as a professional you must understand it is much easier for them to say no than yes. The main reason for this objection is that the client has not found the value in giving you their hard earned money for your product. It isn’t enough just to know how great your product is – as a sales professional you must have empathy for your client’s needs. You must take the time and energy to understand your client’s need, and then make certain that the product which you are offering reflects those needs.  As a sales professional your main focus is to create value and win-win situations for you and the client. Objection is a part of the sales process.

The most common objection is “I can’t afford it right now”. Many new sales professionals get discouraged and often give up at this point. Honestly, I do not think I’ve ever made a sale to a client who did not use that objection. If somebody wants something bad enough and understands the value they are receiving they will find a way to afford it.

No one likes to be sold! This is the key point you have to remember. The objections are just excuses because they don’t want to be sold. You could offer a small business owner a brand new printing machine that they need for their business for a monthly payment of a $100 and still face the same objections. Like I said earlier you just have to find ways around these objections.

Be prepared for the objections before you face them. Put yourself in the client’s position and think of every possible objection they can bring to the table. It is good to write them down, and then think of great ways to overcome those objections with a value proposition. Here are some possible examples:

Client: I love the printing machine, but I just can’t afford it right now.

Sales professional: I understand,  it all comes down to affordability right? So if it was 100% affordable, you would definitely invest in it today?

Take note on what happened. First the sales professional overcame the objection by agreeing with the client. Then he got the client to commit to purchasing the product if he could make it 100% affordable. Now this is where the sales professional works their plan that would make the product affordable for the client.

Client: I already have too many business financial obligations.

Sales professional: I understand, but all small business owners have obligations right? Unfortunately as a business owner you are going to always have financial obligations until you (pause)… Close up shop or kick the bucket. If we let financial obligations stop us from getting what we need to help our business grow, we could never enjoy life.

This is a different approach. The sales professional made the client understand that they will have financial obligations as long as they remain in business, so that is no excuse for not investing in something they need to help their business grow. Now they can no longer use that as an excuse not to invest in your product. Your goal will be to get all the objections out of the way, until your client has no more excuses. Remember this bit of wisdom, “No does not mean no…it means not now”.

The Key To Overcoming Failure: Get Back Up & Try Again!

How many dreams and goals have you evaded because you were afraid of failing? How many times have you looked back on your life, looked upon the mistakes that you have made, and beat yourself up over them? So many people allow dread of making mistakes to hold them back!

If you fail at something it touches you in a deep emotional way. While it feels detrimental at the time, it teaches you imperative lessons. You learn what does not work, and that which might truly bring you closer to success. Because it is so disturbing to fail, if you have the courage to get back up and try again you will try harder the next time. Hope is that which makes us live today as if tomorrow were yesterday.

Even if you try and fail, you will never be the same person you were before you started the project. “The father of success is work – the mother of achievement is ambition.”  You have forced yourself to a new level, moved away from your comfort zone, and are much more sensible for having tried the task. If you constantly avoid pursuing goals and ambitions because you are scared of making mistakes you will never realize what you can accomplish. Trying and failing is better than never having tried at all.

Success is not measured by the position that one has achieved, but by the obstacles which you had to overcome. After experiencing failure you might feel hurt, broken, and/or disappointed. However something astonishing happens once the original sting wears thin; you truly become stronger in mind and spirit! With each effort you put forth, you grow stronger in character and better your odds of achieving success. Success consists of getting up just one more time after you have failed.

If you put your efforts into trying something and you fall short you build bravery to try again. It is the fear of the unknown that truly holds people back, however when you have taken the risk and lost, it won’t feel as chilling the next time you try. Courage doesn’t come from winning, however from the quest of goals-whether you win or not.

You don’t have to lie awake at night to succeed – just stay awake during the day and be willing to do what’s necessary.
