Empower Network | Why I joined the Empower Network

I originally joined the Empower Network a year ago and I went all in immediately. To me this was just what I had been looking for. When I came across it I hadn’t really been thinking about a different business but this just struck me as the one I had to follow through on.

This is the first business I have totally and completely committed myself to and I love it.

I originally joined the Empower Network a year ago and I went all in immediately.  To me this was just what I had been looking for.  When I came across it I hadn’t really been thinking about a different business but this just struck me as the one I had to follow through on.

This is the first business I have totally and completely committed myself to and I love it.

I found a wonderful sponsor who caught my attention very quickly and as I worked my way through the getting started in the format it was then, fell very quickly in love with the product range and the information they provide.  I started this business originally through the IPAS entry path and have loved every minute of my journey.

I saw the amazing potential of the products, especially as at the time, my husband was just starting a new business and for me it was an opportunity to build a second income while I still worked.

During the year, of course, you know what happened.  I also got made redundant so the training I had in this business set me up to cope.  I knew from the audios I had been listening to through the Inner Circle and the reading I was doing every day that we would get through the hard times and succeed.

The support I received from the people that are also doing this business has been incredible.  I have done three boot camps this last year and am now ready to really explode my business.  My confidence in Empower Network goes up every day.  The values of this company fit so much into my way of thinking.  We are going to empower the world to make changes every day.

I am seeing more and more people living the life of Freedom that everyone deserves. People are having breakthroughs daily which are enabling them to succeed in this business. just recently I have seen a family move back to the South Island to go back to live the life they want.  I have seen a number of people retire their partners, or at least earn enough that when their partner wants to stop working they can, I have also seen people make the decision to sell up all their possessions so they can live the life of freedom in a mobile home that they have been dreaming of.

More and more people are looking for alternative ways to make an income which does not include the standard nine to five office job.  More people are realising they can make a living doing what they love, helping others to succeed and working on achieving their own dreams instead of someone else’s. More and more people are been laid off because of company restructures, and younger people have a totally different view of how their life is going to be, so lots of people are looking for ways to live the life they want to live. People are learning daily that they do not have to be in the office to work, there are alternatives like building a business on the internet.

One of my why’s for doing the Empower Network is to be able to help people.  Over the last year even though I have been struggling a little financially I have managed to help a family in Kenya.  I help Peter to be able to travel back and forwards from his workplace and his family am also assisting him to pay a medical bill which is hanging over his head. My goal this year is to be able to help Peter completely pay off the outstanding hospital bill, meet his family in Kenya, and retire my husband and myself from our day jobs.

The other big why is been able to help others, provide charity when I want to, and work on the projects I  want to.  One of our big projects is we want to be able to provide a fully equipped and crewed ambulance to our local ambulance service.

What do you want to do with your life?

Is there a particular charity you want to be able to spend your time helping?

Do you want to be able to spend your time doing what you want to, not doing what others expect of you?

Have you thought about sharing your knowledge with others?  If you have, this is the perfect platform.

If your answer to all these question is Yes then I would love to have you  join me in my journey with the Empower Network.

Come and join me on the path to self-development, time freedom and financial freedom and together we can change the world.

Millionaire Mind | Wealth Files part 11

You can be right or you can be rich, but you can’t be both.

Something you hear a lot is “if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you always do” This is something that we were taught from the very first business we were involved in 20 years ago, and as a result have continued learning every chance we get.

Millionaire Mind| Wealth Files

In the last post we talked about Wealth File #16 about acting in spite of fear.

This is the final post of this series and today I am going to talk about Wealth File #17

Rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know.

Did you know that the three most dangerous words in the English language are “I know that”?

The only way you can know something is if you live it.  Otherwise you heard about it, you read about it or you talk about it, but you don’t know it.

You can be right or you can be rich, but you can’t be both.

Something you hear a lot is “if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you always do” This is something that we were taught from the very first business we were involved in 20 years ago, and as a result have continued learning every chance we get.

For me, I am doing learning every day by reading books, listening to audios, and researching daily.  My husband and I have done adult education, courses like Small business Management course, Advanced business growth course, WordPress training courses, Financial Management courses, options trading courses.  We never stop learning.  We are always stretching our boundaries.

The only way to have money is to learn how to play the money game inside and out.  You need to learn skills and strategies to accelerate your income, manage your money, and to invest it effectively.

One of the biggest things you have to remember is that “Every Master was once a disaster”

What we have done over the years is find models and say to ourselves “if they can do it, we can do it.”

One of the biggest things I have done for me recently is get involved in Business Bootcamps run by my mentor where I have learned so much and have so much more confidence now to run my business.  I have had training on things like how to do email marketing, how to use tools like Periscope, and Instagram.  How to do video marketing.  Over time I will also teach these as I master them.  One of the things Harv says is that Rich people understand the order of success is Be, Do, Have.  You need to do the inner work on yourself so you can make your ability to receive money bigger and bigger and re-programme your financial blueprint.  You have to know and fell like what you want to become, do the work to get there and then actually have what you wanted.

The best way to learn is from the people that have been there before you, take advice from people that have already achieved what you are wanting to achieve.

If you have enjoyed this series of posts let me know.  I would love to hear from you.  I can be contacted on Facebook.

Have a great day

Attitudes and how they can affect you

I have the opposite attitude, I am saying life is an opportunity, I am working on my internet marketing business, I am reading powerful books, I am working with a really empowering group of people, for now I will just go out into the contracting world until this business kicks in and I get my freedom. I am happy and content and know that I will succeed. I know that we have reached the bottom of our trough and the only way to go is up now.

Attitudes and how they can affect you

 

Hi everyone

Well it has been a little while since I wrote but I have been going through interesting times.

I found out last week that my job has been disestablished. This is the second redundancy I have been through so I know how it goes and this time I am able to cope.

At the same time my husband has been going through a hard time. He didn’t realise quite how hard it was going to be starting his own business coaching business. At the start of the week he was telling me life sucks. I told him he needs to get rid of that attitude and instead say that we are the lowest we are going to go and now we can only go up. Midway through the week his attitude has improved again.

The reason why he was saying life sucks was that, he was made redundant December last year, his Grandmother died this year in February, he has not had any solid paying work for six months, one of our pet mice died over the weekend, we have had no car so weekend activities have been curtailed for the last few months and to top it off I have been made redundant now.

I have the opposite attitude, I am saying life is an opportunity, I am working on my internet marketing business, I am reading powerful books, I am working with a really empowering group of people, for now I will just go out into the contracting world until this business kicks in and I get my freedom.  I am happy and content and know that I will succeed. I know that we have reached the bottom of our trough and the only way to go is up now.

Already things are changing,  I will be helping my husband prepare his CV, he has so many skills, but hasn’t really thought about them. He just does not like sitting down and doing the administration. We will get another couple of female mice to keep Smoke, the surviving mouse, company this week so we will have a happy mice collection again. When we are both contracting we will be able to pick up a car so we are able to travel in the weekends again and do swimming and stuff like that, because public transport is all very well but it does not go where we want to go at the kind of times we want to go. Everything is looking up.

As my calendar says this month

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine”

I am learning through my own reading and experience and reading other people’s blogs and seeing their experiences that attitude is just so important. I know I will get a good paying contract role, which will set me up until my digital products business takes over. I also know that as soon as my husband’s skills are with the agencies he will be picking up work without an issue. He will love contracting and I know he has desired skills. I also know that he will be able to continue his business coaching work in the evenings and build up a great reputation that way.

Opportunity is coming our way every way we look. Our local Neighbourhood social platform has just opened up a business arm so we will be able to advertise his business coaching there, I have been looking on our local Job search websites and there are heaps of jobs that match my skills and I know that soon we will be earning more money than we ever have before, which will give us the opportunity to invest in our businesses as well.

Life is looking good.

That is the only attitude I can have.

I am setting my goals, starting to visualise my future and I know I will succeed and the down patch we are going through is only a learning opportunity.

One of my aspirations is to be able to donate a good regular sum of money to a family I am helping in Kenya so they can be lifted from a minimum income job into a well-paying position. So they can afford to get a good quality house and not be scared every time that it rains in the rainy season that their mudhouse will fall down. I would like to see Peter able to get work closer to home or be able to move his family closer to his workplace,  as he currently works 575km away from his home,  so getting home is very difficult for him.

To start this process off I am starting a “givealittle” page which is a free fundraising site in New Zealand, to help with the Sifuna Family’s immediate needs of getting their daughter home from the hospital. Norlan is 10 years old and was admitted to hospital last month. Unfortunately because they have not been able to pay the bill, Norlan remains confined to the hospital when she would rather be at home and going to school. She will remain there until the bill is paid and the bill keeps going up every day with food and accommodation costs. Peter gives me updates every day on Norlan, and this week Norlan’s teacher was able to bring a few of her schoolmates into the hospital to play with her for about 20 minutes which was good for her.

The other attitude I am pushing is do not quit.

I am working on a 90 day boot camp and unfortunately I have got behind on a number of the assignments because of what has been happening, however I will not quit. I will be working hard to get myself caught up again, because the momentum is so great. I have just been listening to a webcast about changes that are happening to our business and I and my collegues are so excited about what is happening in the industry. This is a really exciting time for our industry and I would love for you to join me on the roller coaster that is going to lead to more success for more people.

Attitudes and how they affect you

I started off by calling this blog attitudes and how they affect you. I believe that an attitude like my husband’s was at the beginning of the week is not good so we are working together to change that attitude.  He is usually pretty good but has down times, whereas me, I am forever chirpy, positive and know that success will come our way. I am affecting him daily as his attitude is uplifting more and more daily. I love seeing him succeed and be happy. The change in attitude is immediately uplifting.

If you have an attitude where you feel that everything is wrong and life sucks then life will suck. You need to change it so that you attract good things to you. You need to be grateful for everything you have and more of the good stuff you want will come to you. Remember wherever you are, whatever the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

I look at the the Sifuna Family I am trying to help in Kenya and are forever grateful for what I have access to in our first world country and I just want to share so much of it.  Please help me help the Sifuna Family.

Contact me for details of how you can help to get Norlan home from hospital.

Be grateful every day for what you have and what you have achieved and your attitude will be forever positive.

Have a great day and remember Where ever you are always bring your own Sunshine.

Attitude | Is your Attitude worth catching?

Is your attitude worth catching? Do you go around in a funk of negativity believing everything is a poo sandwich or do you get up with a smile and face the world with a positive attitude to the world?

Is your attitude worth catching?

Do you believe that you can be successful it just takes some work? Or do you believe that life is poo sandwich and everything is against you?

Your attitude affects your life in so may ways, so take a close look at your attitude.  Is there something that needs to change?

I have a close friend that was bought up to believe it was wrong to be given anything it was taking, that she was worthless at practical things and wasn’t allowed to help in the kitchen or taught anything practical as a child.  She was encouraged in her school work but not allowed to learn to cook, clean or do any of the things our parents normally teach us.  She was also taught that money was wrong, that people that had money were mean.

In the last few years I have seen a major attitude change in this friend as she has realised she is totally capable and it is not bad to accept gifts.  This friend now is an amazing cook experimenting in the kitchen all the time and is a great little housecleaner. And now can accept gifts without feeling bad.  That is a major turn around in attitude.  She is now even running her own business and understands that successful people actually give more by been successful.

I have another friend that has been through illness and hardship all her life but she always has a wonderful smile and believes that life is great.  This lady has had a positive attitude no matter what has happened to her in life and as a result she has outlived so many people that did not have her positive attitude when many times she has been told she has multiple illnesses.

So is your attitude worth catching?

Do you run around thinking the the sky is falling, nothing ever goes your way? or do you look forward to every day? Start the morning with a smile and keep smiling no matter what life throws at you?

Do you think your attitude needs some adjusting?

There are so many wonderful books out there, audios you can listen to and people that can help you with changing your attitude.

I am part of a wonderful team online called the totally inspired living tribe and I have never met such a wonderfully supportive team of people before in my life.  We are all there to support each other not hype, and we read each other’s blogs and videos and help syndicate and teach each other. And it is all because I joined this wonderful business at the beginning of the year.

Through this business I am getting daily inspiration to help adjust my attitude by reading, listening to audios and associating with some of the most amazing people in the world.

If you want to join this wonderful group of people then click any of the banners on this page and together we can work on changing our attitudes.

If you want to know more about changing your attitude and having an attitude which is worth catching then leave your email address below and we can catch up.

So is your attitude worth catching?

If you think your attitude needs adjusting then lets do this together.  Catch up with me on Facebook or leave a comment below.  I would love to meet you.

As an aside, check out this range of tee-shirts.  My husband calls it bad attitude clothing, so it fits in with this idea of what is your attitude and is it worth catching.

Have a great day.

 

Procrastination | Reasons for Procrastination

There are two main reasons for procrastination, the fear of success and the fear of failure. Today I go a bit more in depth of these two fears and ways to overcome them.

Reasons for Procrastination

Over the last few posts I have been talking about procrastination.  In the first post I was fairly general about some of the reasons for Procrastination,  in the second post I shared some quotes about procrastination and how they apply to me and in this post I am going to discuss the two major fears that can lead to procrastination.

My husband has been doing some training as well for his business as well and his mentor said that the two main reasons for procrastination are the “fear of Success” and the “Fear of Failure” and so he suggested I go into more detail on these fears.

Why is it that so many lottery winners are back to where they started a year after they won the lottery? Why do Pop Stars that become famous overnight have so much problem dealing with it? Particularly if it is a result of a reality show.  A lot of the reason is that these people do not know how to handle success.  A lot of people do not how they would handle success if it came to them suddenly by doing something so they procrastinate.

You have to know how to deal with success, and the way you learn, is by reading and listening to audios.  Training your mind that success is natural, that you will succeed and you will be able to handle it.  Your mind has to be prepared to accept success otherwise it will self-sabotage all your efforts.

The way I am preparing my mind is reading powerful books like Napoleon Hill, listening to audios like our inner circle audios and I am also listening to subliminal recordings and hypnosis but that is not for everyone.

Other ways we can prepare ourselves are by meditation and associating with other successful people. Masterminding with other successful people enables you to associate success with you and your friends and just be accepted.

 

Reasons for Procrastination

 

The other major Fear you have to overcome often to stop procrastination is the “Fear of Failure.” With this fear you are afraid that you will fail so do not even want to start the task before you.  You might have been told all your informative years that you will never come to anything, that you might as well not try as you will fail.

One of the the first things you have to teach yourself is that all successful people have failed before they achieved.  One of the most important things to remember is that Edison failed 10000 times before he succeeded in creating a working light-bulb.  Donald Trump has failed many times but what makes him great is that he always gets up and starts again and is now one of the richest men in the world.   What you need to do is look at failure as just a step along the way to success.  Each failure gets you further along the path to success as you learn how to deal with that issue and progress further on the path to success.

 

PicMonkey Collage

The more important thing is if you fail do you just try again after analysing the reason for failure? If you do you will be preparing yourself for success and the more you do this the less you will procrastinate.

These are two main reasons for procrastination,  There are multiple reasons but most of them will boil down to these two reasons.

If you have enjoyed reading my post on reasons for Procrastination,  then comment below with examples you have come across and methods you are using to overcome these two main fears.

Reasons for Procrastination

To summarise the two main reasons for Procrastination are fear of success and fear of failure and they both can be interchanged and overcome by preparing the mind.

Procrastination | How do you overcome Procrastination?

Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind. The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose. Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why. Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.

Procrastination, how do you overcome it?

 

I have been thinking about procrastination a lot this week.  I have been suffering from it a bit.

I have been showing up in my business everyday, a little bit each day but not putting in the full time I should have been devoting.

I have been making excuses that life has taken over again , but the real excuse is I have not had my definite major purpose at front of mind.  I have been trying to get my head in the right place by using subliminal tools and of course reading and listening to audios, which has helped me deal with some of the depression and negativity my husband has been going through as well.

 

The dictionary definition of Procrastination is:

noun
1.

the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especiallysomething requiring immediate attention:

She was smart, but her constant procrastination led her to be late with almost every assignment.

So how do you overcome procrastination?

 

Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind.  The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose.  Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why.  Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.
There are some situations where procrastination is good.  This is putting off minor and unimportant tasks so you can concentrate on the major tasks that lead to achievement of your definiteness of purpose.  Sometimes this procrastination can save you from putting effort in where you shouldn’t exert it.
There are several reasons for Procrastination and all can be overcome.  The list of reasons I have found is Stress, Overwhelm , Laziness, Lack of Motivation, Lack of Discipline, Poor time Management. Lack of Skills, and perfectionism.
I have just read a blog from Steve Palina.com which has a really good explanation of what to do to overcome these reasons for the procrastination but the one that I like the most is make time to play as well then make time to work.

So what ways do you overcome procrastination?

What methods do you use in your daily life to overcome habits of procrastination?
I would love to hear what you do.  Leave a comment below and help others with your ways of overcoming procrastination.
If you have enjoyed my blog and find the information I share useful please share with others and contact me on Facebook.  I love to chat.

Persistence |What is it to be Persistent?

Persistence: What is is it to be persistent?

Everyone keeps saying be persistent but what do they mean by that?

Here is the dictionary definition of persistence:

persistence
pəˈsɪst(ə)ns/
noun
noun: persistence
  1. the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
    “Cardiff’s persistence was rewarded with a try”
    synonyms: perseverance, tenacity, determination, resolve, resolution, resoluteness,staying power, purposefulness, firmness of purpose, patience, endurance,application, diligence, sedulousness, dedication, commitment,doggedness, persistency, pertinacity, assiduity, assiduousness,steadfastness, tirelessness, indefatigability, stamina; More

  2. the continued or prolonged existence of something.
    “the persistence of huge environmental problems”

So a good definition of persistence is setting yourself goals and keeping to them, developing habits, and staying the course no matter what gets in your way,

With the 90 day bootcamp I am doing I have been impressed with how much I have achieved so far.  The persistence is paying off and I have not seen myself so happy in such a long time.

I was extremely camera shy when I started but I can now say I have done 23 Facebook videos and by persisting through the challenge they have now become just another way of communicating.

Another friend of mine (you can meet her here) has shown persistence in wanting to run her own pet care/feeding business.  She had her first client last week and the customer was so impressed that she already has repeat business.  Heni went around every pet store in her area and every place where she could leave cards and also do mail drops and the persistence has paid off.

So tell me below examples of persistence in your life I would love to hear of ways that persistence has paid off for you

Other ways of showing persistence are reading daily, blogging regularly, sharing your business and ideas with people and generally making habits stick.

Empowerment What Does It Mean to You?

Empowerment What does it mean to you?

I have been calling this blog my daily empowerment so today I decided to investigate what empowerment means.

The dictionary has two definitions of Empowerment.

Empowerment What does it mean to you?

I have been calling this blog my daily empowerment so today I decided to investigate what empowerment means.

The dictionary has two definitions of Empowerment.

verb (used with object)

1.

to give power or authority to; authorize, especially by legal or official means:

I empowered my agent to make the deal for me. The local ordinance empowers the board of health to close unsanitary restaurants.

2.

to enable or permit:

Wealth empowered him to live a comfortable life.

 So Empowerment What Does it mean to you?

This blog is called my daily empowerment because I share information that will allow you to self-empower yourself. Which means we empower ourselves by giving us the power to succeed with whatever our challenges are.

So Empowerment what does it mean to you?

 We give ourselves power by reading and listening to powerful books and audios.  By turning off the negative things in our lives and creating a positive mental attitude. We also associate ourselves with people that we can learn from.  That have gone through the mistakes before us and teach us ways that will make our path easier than the one they had to strike.
The kinds of books we read are business books, mind set books, anything positive.
The books I am currently reading are “Napoleon Hill’s Keys to Success” and “Secrets of Inspiring Leaders Exposed” Interviews by Dale Beaumont.
Through these books I am learning so much.
Here is a short video I did one day on some of my reading.
So Empowerment what does that mean to you?
I hope you have enjoyed this post.  Leave a comment below and tell me what
you think empowerment means to you.
If you want to get your daily empowerment by listening to audios come and join me listening to Inner Circle audios. The power of daily listening is incredible.

How to survive a very emotional week

Thank you for joining me today. I am sorry I have not been very communicative this week but I have been going through a very emotional week.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for joining me today.  I am sorry I have not been very communicative this week but I have been going through a very emotional week.

As I said in my last blog my husband’s grandmother passed on 12th February, and since then it has been an interesting week.

As I mentioned in the last blog, my birthday was also last week and we remembered that it was Wednesday just as we were heading into our drive and as a result moved the day of the funeral. So to catch you up with the rest o the week.

On Monday I went to work, Tuesday was a bereavement day, it was also the day my husband and I had medical appointments which had been booked weeks ago.  On Tuesday we went to the florist, we had seen an example of her work on line.  The result was beautiful so here is a link to her website.  Wednesday I returned to the office and had a normal day.  My birthday pretty much went un-noticed at the time this year except by my closest friends and family and my friends on Facebook.  On Thursday it was the funeral.  It was a beautiful funeral which gave me the opportunity to grieve for my grandmother and my friend to grieve for her grandmother as well as Gran. Friday was a normal day of work, however I was feeling a bit emotionally unstable at times.

Casket Flowers

I also had other news that was disturbing this week so I have been doing the following things to get me over this hump.

To get me through this week I have been listening to my Inner Circle recordings to keep me positive, listening to my angel cards, and started using the Esther and Jerry Hicks cards about Ask and you will receive.

All of this has kept me on pretty even keel so I have not dived into depression or anything bad with this week.

I recommend to any one that they make use of the Inner Circle recordings to get you over the humps in life, the information in them is so valuable and inspiring when you need it.  The one I have listened to most this week is a Lawrence Tam talk about being greater than average.

The other thing that has kept my spirits up has been seeing all the positive quotes that have been passing through my Facebook feed from all of my fellow Tribe mates and other friends.  Thank you to everyone for your support during this last week.

If you want this same sort of support and wonderfully positive messages in your friend feed and absolutely supportive people in your lives then click the banner below or in the middle of this post and join me in this wonderful journey of discovery.  I would love to meet you and help you achieve your dreams.  See you on the beaches or mountains of the world, I look forward to supporting you on your journey

Have a great day
