The Richest Man In Babylon is a classic tale in the personal development world and I just found a great audio version of the story that highlighted the 3 top lessons.
If you’ve never heard of the Richest Man In Babylon, it’s a story written by George S. Clason in the early 1900’s.
It tells the tale of Arkad and how he came to become the Richest Man In Babylon under the guidance of his mentor Algamish.
Here’ s a brief summary of the story to give you some perspective.
Today I was joined by a good friend and mentor Dwayne Klassen on the Mentor’s MasterClass for an engaging interview.
Dwayne Klassen is known as THE Coach For Men, he’s an engaging and entertaining transformational speaker, author, coach and entrepreneur with a passion for ancient wisdom, men’s issues and helping humanity raise the bar and play a bigger game.
We all face moments where our confidence levels are low, and today I want to share with you how ti increase your confidence with one simple exercise.
You’ve no doubt heard the famous first lines from Charles Dickens classic A Tale Of Two Cities
It was the best of times,
It was the worst of times…
In any given moment those 2 worlds exist.
For some, it may seem like the best of times.
For others, it feels like the worst of times.
What’s the difference?
The difference is which world the person focuses on.
One of my mentor’s likes to say that 85% of your success is determined by your mindset, or your “inner game”.
Some people think your results in life are all about what you’re DOing…
But more importantly before you start DOing, it’s about who you’re BEing.
Today I was reading a message from another mentor of mine that shared a profound message about the BEing stage of the formula and some truths about our inner game.
How many times have you reached your destination when you’re driving somewhere and suddenly realized you don’t remember much or any of the journey. You were daydreaming and lost in thought, and your subconscious took over and helped you get where you were going.
When was the last time you consciously thought about your breathing or your heart beating?
I’m guessing you do that rarely, if ever.
Do you consciously think about digesting your food (unless that fast food meal is sitting like a rock or turning over in your stomach)?
Your subconscious mind is your body’s operating system, and one of the primary reasons you’re not getting the results you want is because that operating system was programmed primarily while you were a toddler.
I’ve had a number of conversations lately with people who say they don’t know what their purpose and passion is.
They’re moving through life without a clear destination, and like a log in the river just keep getting carried downstream.
In my morning reading today, I discovered 4 questions you can ask yourself to help discover your purpose and passion.
This afternoon I was out running some errands in my University on Wheels ( I listen to audio programs while I’m driving – in case you’ve never heard that term.
And the program I was listening to by one of my favorite mentors Bob Proctor (a multi-millionaire featured in The Secret) was talking about a major secret to creating wealth he called MSI’s.
If you’ve never heard the term MSI, or aren’t sure what it stands for make sure to watch the video below for all the details.
Have you ever heard the expression “Facts tell, Stories sell”?
It’s an expression that’s used quite a bit in advertising, sales and marketing, and for good reason.
People make buying decisions emotionally, and rarely does someone get emotionally engaged with a list of facts or features.
A story on the other hand, when told well allows people to get emotionally engaged, and much more receptive to the offer you’ll eventually make.
People want to know, like and trust the people they do business with, and telling stories is a great way to build that K-L-T factor.
Let me illustrate that point with this short video by one of my mentors.
There’s a reason less than 5 percent of people who get started with a home business ever become top producers, and it’s because they don’t follow the formula!
Actually, to be honest, 90% of them don’t even get started.
In fact, of 1000 people that start a home business 900 won’t do much more than call a couple of friends or family and get rejected, and then quit.
Of the 100 who do take some action, half of those still won’t get any sizable results.
Only a handful will ever produce a full time income and just a few will create true financial freedom.
Now that I’ve painted such a rosy picture, let’s have a look at why that is.
It’s called human nature. How many people in any other type of business achieve monumental success?
Again, just a few. 90% of people are either just getting by or are “comfortable” whatever that means.
Today I want to share with you the actual formula to become a top producer in your home business.
