Happy New Year – Resolutions or Results?

by Franco on December 29, 2010

I won’t even ask my friend…

We won’t go there for 2010’s resolutions
since it’s over and there’s nothing that
can be done about it. So what!

Who cares?

It’s all about NOW. Today. This moment.

Funny how people find it a “sport”
to make resolutions, but rarely are
they remotely serious about changing
the mindset that leads them to fail
on most resolutions they make year
after year.

You can’t solve the effects without
working on changing the cause.

2. Jot down the 3 BIG Things
you want to change in 2011.


Ask anyone if they still have the
same habits they had 5 years ago…

Why would anyone expect different
results or changes in their life this year,
if they fail to replace old habits with new
ones? Impossible.

Habits start with beliefs and thoughts.

So it makes sense that if you truly want
to change the circumstances of your current
life… it must start with tweaking your
actual beliefs… (no, that’s not easy).

For most of us, it wasn’t our fault.

Our environment (family, teachers, society)
programmed certain beliefs INTO us and
we couldn’t filter in good ones from bad ones.
They just were put in us and we became them.

So it’s NOT easy to change them…

But it IS possible. Many have done it before.

But if you stubbornly fail to want
to change some beliefs you have
about life…

And you “make yourself right” by debating
why your beliefs are right and “they” are wrong…

“What you argue for, you always
get to keep…”

If you keep arguing FOR the same
beliefs and the same thoughts that
got you where you are today…

Is it any surprise you’ll keep getting
the same results and circumstances?

The question is:

How bad do you really want to change them?

Most people just talk a good game.

Most people argue that if they are broke
financially, everyone else must be too.

Most people argue that if THEY think
something is too expensive, or too cheap,
or not needed, that everyone else should
believe that too.

Most people believe that “playing it safe”
and being “quiet” and not making any noise
is the way to live a life without confrontation…

They end up believing that everyone else believes that too.

And they go through life surrounding themselves
with people, places, jobs and things that end
up proving those beliefs “right.”

Oh, sure, they’ll whine and complain and cry
and mope and justify how “everything just
happened to them” – and nothing is their fault.

But the truth is…

The fact is…

There will be a couple times in life where
they will be in the presence of information,
opportunity or people who will “call them out”
and let them know they have not been entirely
correct… or that there are other sets of beliefs
that lead to different ways of life…

And that only by adjusting their mind, they
can experience a totally different lifestyle too…

And they will have a mirror shown in front of
them and they will be led to information that
can change their life…

And they will have to make a decision.

Because at first, that doesn’t “feel” comfortable.



Encouraged to change.

What do most people do?

Most people take offense.

It feels too uncomfortable to have
to realize a different “truth” that
requires change of the hardest kind…

Mindset Change.

It’s painful.

Just like pumping iron and working out
is painful at first.

Just like getting back to running is
painful at first…

Just like quitting smoking or alcohol
is painful at first…

Just like choosing to eat differently
is painful at first…

Just like being more positive is actually
painful at first… (what risk)…

Choosing to believe that changing
your financial situation is actually a
very simple process that begins inside
your mind… and that it’s not complicated…

That’s PAINFUL at first to many people.

So, instead of embracing the temporary
pain and potential errors and failures that
are guaranteed to come to you as you work
to change your mind… so you can change
your income and change your world…

People resort to habit.

They get “offended” and argue for
what they have programmed themselves
to live with…

And you can’t say the right thing to
the wrong person… they close up.

What you argue for, you’ll always get to keep.

You won’t accomplish any resolutions
without first resolving to change the mind
that controls your thoughts, beliefs and habits.

The beautiful thing though, is this:

Just knowing that the heart of improvement
is in simply learning to challenge yourself
and changing your mindset… even little by
little… is empowering and liberating.

It’s simple.

Just believe you can.

And change little tiny, insignificant things…

And those little victories will lead
you to bigger ones and victory becomes

Believe it can be simple.

And it will be.

Stop arguing about why that comp plan
isn’t “perfect.” And start arguing about
the truth that “it doesn’t have to be.”

Stop arguing about whether everyone
is broke. Start arguing for the fact that
some folks thought and believed differently
and they aren’t busted… but only looking
for opportunity with people who care and
are accessible…

Be that person.
So they will be attracted to you.

Money is everywhere. It changes and shifts.
It never goes away. Money is more a mindset
thing than it is a physical thing… look…

People join things and choose to change
because of an emotional connection with
a potential result
… it’s the solution they’re
looking for… not the drill, or the tool or pill.

They want the solution.

They want the benefits that the solution
will bring to them. And hearing a great
story that involves the solution is what
they LOVE and it’s that story and solution
and potential… it’s that FEELING that
people buy.

I chose one solution.

I wrapped it in a story…

And I prepared an unstoppably confident
mindset so that I can share it…

And I shared my simple story (with the
solution inside it) with thousands and
thousands of people over the years…

I shared it in emails, post cards, 800# lines,
videos, articles, forum posts, facebook updates,
tweets and blogs…

The methods and tactics always change.

I simply plastered my story and intention
and solution wherever the people were at.

ONLY looking for those who already
were looking and believing in a similar
story and solution (like-minded people)…

My job was not to be perfect…

My job (calling) was to simply share it
in whatever different ways I could…

And that’s all I did…

I shared my story and solution… with others.

It was ONE idea.

“Wouldn’t it be cool to have a method
of earning what we need to live right
from home… by sharing a concept with
people looking for the same solution?

Heck, why not? Lets build it. Join me!”

And many people began to check my solution
out and they joined me. So simple. A vehicle.

That was it.

I sold a concept.

That others were already looking for.

I sold it by believing it could be done.

I sold it by believing in myself first.

And I sprinkled that concept with my
confidence and optimism and focus on
keeping it simple and not complicated.

You put emotion and your passion on it.

You sell YOURSELF first.

When other people believe that you
believe in yourself… they pay attention.

When you stand like a rock for a concept,
people respect it and are drawn to understand
what it is you see and feel.

Most people go through this whole
industry like timid little sheep and
they give off an energy or feeling
that they DO NOT believe in themselves…

Other people get repelled by that.

People then try to hide behind “gurus”
(good and bad ones) and they think that
just blindly following the “system” or the
“guru” is the answer…

But people don’t follow them.

Why should they?

Would you?

It’s not the comp plan…
It’s not the product…
It’s not the system…
It’s not the gazzillionaire leader at the top of your pyramid…

None of that has ever mattered.


No matter what the program, company
or system, it’s always (ALWAYS) the
confident, optimistic, enthusiastic,
people that sit at the top of the food chain.

They attract without trying.

They “close” without selling.

People are not buying their system, comp plan,
product, or “launch” – they are buying the person.

Most times, these people keep the simplest
of “tactics” because they do NOT need
anything complicated. Not necessary when
you learn what really matters and how to
share it with others.

When you can confidently express
an idea and concept and bring others
to believe that you believe in yourself
and your concept… you don’t need anything else.

Oh sure, it’s fun to leverage and use tools to
make it easier to get your story and solution
in front of more people 24/7… but you can
keep it simple.

It’s always about your STORY and SOLUTION
and not about the widget or method because
that will keep changing. It always does…

But people and human nature doesn’t.


It’s your call.

It always has been and it always will be.

Resolutions or Results?

Complicated or simple?

Over Analyze or Decision & Intention?

Focus on “me” — Or Focus on Impressing Increase into Others?
