Restart Button

Restart Button

Many of us use the beginning of the year as a time to set goals for the year. You may have set resolutions.

I’ll bet I can name 80% of everyone’s resolutions in two guesses – First – get healthier (lose weight, build muscle, run a marathon, eat better)  and Second – Make more money (maybe with my LifePath Unlimited business).

After that – it’s other happiness builders – more family time, more personal satisfaction from my work, clean the closets or the garage, or for the true underachievers – just clean out the trunk of the car!

Great.  That my goals and your goals and everyone else’s goals are similar is FINE.  Really, it’s good for your Life Path Unlimited business.  You are in a place to get yourself on the path to all of these goal and more.  And what’s more, you know that most of the people you speak to have these same aspirations, and you can help them help themselves.

We start January with goals, and by the last 10 days of January – we can see if we are moving in a new direction or falling into old patterns – goals forgotten.  Those last ten days of January are the days with the highest reported depression of the year…and the explanation is that this is when people realize they are not moving toward their goals.

So, they get DEPRESSED.  Um…well…call me crazy, but as a self reflective, course adjusting person, I don’t spend a lot of time wallowing in depression.

I do something different from getting depressed.  If my goals are not getting closer, I reflect; I adjust; I  RESTART. If your results in all your life are not what you dream about, push restart.  If you are knocking the ball off the cover, push restart and do it again.

I wrote myself a note to remind me that restarting takes action – it’s a quotation from a complete unknown…we’ll call him “Bob”  (cause that’s his name).  Bob and I spent many hours watching our respective eldest sons play hockey – the boys were on the same team from first grade through 7th grade.  Bob had a lot of great lines while watching Brendan play, and my favorite thing ever out of Bob’s mouth was this:  he yelled “BRENDAN, every shot you don’t take won’t go in!”

Write that one down now – every shot you don’t take won’t go in.  Brilliant. Every ad you don’t place won’t bring prospects to your LifePath Unlimited business.  And every prospect you don’t call, won’t become a new, enlightened person through LifePath’s Discovery Series.”

So, push restart, take your shots, place your ads, make your calls, and make this your best week ever.

The most important thing to strive for in order to make your Life Path Unlimited business take off is mastery.  How do you approach mastery?

Two simple steps that, taken over and over, will lead to mastery.

First: practice self- reflection.

What is going well today, this week, this month?  What is not working as well as you want it to?

In my LifePath Unlimited business, a lot is going well: I am actively marketing amazing products.  The quality of the Discovery Series and the true life changing nature of the Breakthrough Conference eclipse everything I have seen from other companies.  I briefly marketed Liberty League products, but I never felt good about the value of what I was selling.  I could never reflect and feel like those products were working well.

Next, make adjustments.

Here’s an example from my practice of working toward mastery.

Last week I identified taking action as not going as well as I wanted. So I adjusted and took more and bigger action to promote Life Path Unlimited.

As a result, I have leads, and I am calling them on a regular basis. Many people are looking for a profitable, high quality home business.  I contact great quality prospects who want to learn this business from the top leaders.

While taking action, I got results, but not all the results I felt I deserved.  I continued to reflect and make adjustments.

Midweek, I was talking to another LifePath representative about marketing, and he suggested I use his auto-responders to keep in touch with my prospects.

“What?” I asked,  “Just use yours?  Are you sure?”
