If you want to really succeed in business, you need a DIFFERENT WAY OF THINKING!

By Leon Brickey
Posted Sunday, September 12, 2004

We all have reasons for going into business. For some of us it's to provide more income for our families; while others are in business only to obtain wealth for themselves. Either is fine, but most business owners fit into one or both of these categories.

The key element that both these groups share in common is the fact they both want a larger, more substantial income. I think it would be safe to say most of them would like to achieve financial independence; and some probably share the same feelings I have; They would like to be STONE COLD WEALTHY!! :-) I've been involved in MLM and home business opportunities for the last five years. I've seen some normal everyday people make some incredible amounts of money. I myself have been very fortunate to receive some really nice checks from time to time. The fact is that there are EMPIRES being built by small and home business owners.

Here is a very candid look at some very basic concepts that will help you tremendously once you incorporate them into your way of thinking. The fact is that we've all been "brainwashed!" But there is still hope. We need to rid ourselves of all this "traditional hog wash" we've been made to believe and adapt a different way of thinking!

1) Be careful of folks who tell you: "It won't work!"
This will most always be the people you care the most about. Your family and friends. They think they are saving you from ruins. They mean well, but they are discouraging you. Stay clear. Don't listen to them. Refuse to discuss your business with them! Besides most of the time they are broke financially just like you when you started. Don't EVER take business/financial advice from anyone that isn't doing MUCH BETTER THAN YOU! If you want to know about making money ask somebody who's made lots of money. You just can't listen to family and friends when it comes to business. I want to be like my family in some ways but not always financially.

Don't let someone making $20,000 a year tell you that you can't make $20,000 a month with your business! Very respectfully don't listen to folks you don't want to be like. Surround yourself with positive people and listen to business training and motivational tapes. These really do make a difference. Especially over time! Avoid negativity like the plague!

2) The people who make big money in network marketing, small busineses, and home based businesses are no different than you and I. Oh sure, they me be talented. More than likely they are VERY motivated. But, they are a person just like you and I. They have good days and bad days just like everyone else. What separates them from the person who fails is that they hang tough during the hard times and keep pushing on. And believe me we ALL have hard times. We've all got at least 100 reasons we should quit. The real winners just keep focused on the goal of financial independence for them and/or their family!

Don't whine about what went wrong! Find out what you need to do to fix it and DO IT!

3) Work is OK. Work is a good thing. It provides income; which in turn provides food, shelter, clothing, education, etc. But the concept of having to continue to work for money till we die is not a good thing! At some point it has to stop! You can't work forever. I'm not so sure the government will be able to care for all of us. In fact they almost certainly WILL NOT be able to care for all of us. But we have to find a way to keep the money coming in after we quit working.

Sounds too good to be true doesn't it?

Just because something sounds too good to be true doesn't necessarily mean it IS too good to be true does it?

If I bought a lottery ticket and scratched the ticket to find out that I had just won a million dollars; that would sound to good to be true. But it WOULD be true if I had a winning ticket!

No different in business. Just because something sounds too good to be true, doesn't necessarily mean that it IS too good to be true. Look closely. It may be as good as they say it is! The whole world isn't a scam. Often times folks blame the business for their failure when they know good and well the blame lies square on their shoulders!

This does not mean you should not be skeptical of a new company that is not well known. Check them out closely and ask some unbiased folks if they've heard of them. If it's a well known company that's been around for a while you are probably OK.

4) First they lied to us about Santa Claus. Then they lied to us about the Easter Bunny. Then they told us the biggest lie of all."If you get a college education you'll get a great job, make lots of money, and live successfully ever after."

Absolutely no negative reflection on a college education but that just isn't true. The real money is in business. Oh college is great. I highly recommend it. I have a degree in nursing myself. You should go to college; but college in no way assures wealth or success. It doesn't even assure a job!

Not too many jobs allow you to earn $20,000 or more per month. Unless you are CEO of a billion dollar company. But $20,000 a month has been accomplished many times with a good network marketing opportunity. When you hear successful network marketing pros talking earnings of $10,000, $20,000, or $30,000 often times they are talking monthly! Income like this does not come by signing up and hoping spillover and downline members will make you wealthy. It takes a tremendous amount of work. You have to be a real leader to build a downline that pays that kind of money. But it can be done.

Network marketing allows you to make a lot of money at something you know very little about. Network marketing also allows you to stay broke at something you are an expert at.

Get as much education and as good an education as possible, but don't think that alone is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.


Don't beg people to get involved in your business!! There's no one person you have to have. You've got the whole world to advertise to.

How much time have you got to waste on anyone who is NOT interested. Zero! If you think they would be a valuable rep in your organization; stick with them till you get them to look at the business, then let them decide and you go on to someone else. NEXT!! We are only interested in talking to people interested in our product, service, or opportunity. This does not apply to everyday life but it certainly applies in business!

If I'm not interested in what you are offering I can promise you I'll be even less interested after your 7th follow-up. Enough said.

Folks the time we are living in offers the greatest opportunity EVER to build a successful small or home business. The internet has linked the whole world with the World Wide Web. The number of people available out there to obtain as customers and/or recruit into business is no less than STAGGERING. And the REALLY BIG numbers aren't even online yet! If you can get a vision of just how big what lies before you is and you are willing to work very hard you can change your life as you never dreamed. You can roll 20 or 30 years of work into 5 or 10 years. It only makes sense you are gonna have to work hard for those 5 or 10 years.

If you want to REALLY succeed in business you've got to have A DIFFERENT WAY OF THINKING!

Thank You.
