Just sharing something I read lately lately:

We live in such an amazing time: there is so much information at our fingertips. I can jump on Google and search for something, spend a few minutes on YouTube to see how something is done, or hit up Amazon to get an expert’s book.

The INFORMATION is great.

Problem is, there’s so damn much of it.

What people really need (and often don’t even realize) is INSIGHT.

You can get the steps and strategies and systems from one expert or another, from guru or another; that’s the INFORMATION. But how do you know what works for you? How do you know which is right for your business? How do you actually build it into your unique situation? That’s where INSIGHT comes in.

Look, you can go out and get another book. But have you actually implemented all the stuff in the books you already have? Something to think about...

So at your next Group meeting or Group call focus on INSIGHT!!!!

I was told once that life revolves around the law of Attraction. We wonder why a small group of people get what they want while others struggle. It has all to do with their attitude and positive thinking in life. This positve thinking creates the energy that attracts all that you wish for and desire. This of course comes with effort on ones part but it is that positive mindset that sets them apart. There are three simple steps they follow:

1. Ask - they ask for what they desire

2. Believe - they believe it would happen

3. Receive - by believing that they what they ask for they recieve. 

Remember  these three and work it.
