Think & Grow Rich Mastermind Training

Reflections on the book by Napoleon Hill

think & grow rich mastermind trainingI had the opportunity to share some of my relflections on Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill recently with my mastermind community.  It is a blueprint for creating wealth and success in life and business.  As I have been engaged in studying this book over the last year I have learned how to apply the principles into my life and my business.

Last week when I shared my experiences with my peers, it was a great opportunity for me to expand and grow again.  I am constantly going to the next level in my mindset, my business and in my personal growth.  We are forever the student and if we continue to grow “forward” we will not be going backwards!  Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is a great start or continuation to any form of success training you are engaged in.

Raising Your Bars – inspiration from Manifesting Change by Mike Dooley

Manifesting Change by Mike Dooley

Where are your bars set, high or low?

I have been reading Manifesting Change by Mike Dooley and have had such gratitude for the simple way he writes .  He takes what I used to see as very confusing, out of this world, metaphysical stuff and makes it really useful in my life.

Kirsten RinnI used to think that driving a Mercedes would make me look materialistic.  I thought that in some way it was bad or something.  It was not in alignment to what I thought about my reality back then.  I wanted to save the world and be helpful and useful to others.  I wanted a family and I wanted to be happy.  I have always wanted a Mercedes.  To this day I still want a Mercedes, an antique convertible SL  to be exact and a Mercedes Station Wagon is even sweet but what ever right?

It is okay to want nice things, I get that today.  Things don’t make us who we are.  The inner us is what counts.  Ultimately I want pure happiness to engulf my life.  I want amazing relationships, abundance and wealth, kids that respect and honor me and others, a beautiful home that is functional and inspiring (and on the beach!) and you know what?  This is my end result that I live in now.  I may not have the beach home yet, but I know it is coming.  I have raised my bars and have higher views about what I want my reality to be today.

 The perspective we have about our life now will reflect what are bars are set.  We might not realize what they are set at until we look at a few different scenarios.  In the book Manifesting Change, by Mike Dooley, he  gives some great examples of scenarios or exercises as he calls them.  One went something like this:  visualize you are on a long plane trip to a far off exotic locale.  Take a minute and visualize it.  See yourself on the plane and feel what it would feel like.  Then he goes on to ask, how did you see yourself on the plane?  Were you in coach, business class or first class? You can take it further and ask yourself who you were with, were you alone? Were you happy? The point is try to notice where your bars are set and then if they do not serve where you want to go and be, f they do not help you get closer to your goal or dream, then change them.  Just raise your bars.

Kirsten RinnWhen I finally realized that my life was simply my perspective of it, (it is all illusion really anyway) then I started to see I should only be concerned with what I want in my life.  I should not waste my energy trying to please others as I did for way to long. I should not be concerned with what others think about me or what opinions they have about anything really.  I should decide what I want and then move toward that.

Manifesting Change by Mike Dooley

In Mike Dooley’s book Manifesting Change, there is a section about feelings and emotions that really helped me understand how powerful we can be in creating what we want in our life.  He says to dwell from the place of your happiness, predicate your perspectives on that, choose your thoughts and words on that place, model your behavior from that place.

“Perspectives summon circumstances that change fortunes. 

Be there. Go there now and never leave. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. Live your life from that mind-set. Predicate your behavior on that reality, not the illusions that now surround you. Filter every thought, question, and answer from there. Let your focus shift and be born again – because dwelling from, not upon, the space you wish to inherit is the fastest way to change absolutely everything”

                        –Notes From The Universe

Manifesting Change by Mike Dooley

So as I learn to practice not to condition my behavior on the illusions of time, space and matter, at least not exclusively, because that simply perpetuates the conditions you’re living in.

Don’t use logic and your physical senses to make all of your decisions. In spite of the illusions that may surround you – think from your end result and what would serve you in that reality!  This,  says Mike Dooley is pure power!

I am done giving away my power!

To your abundance,

Kirsten

If you haven’t figured it out already, I think Manifesting Change by Mike Dooley is a great book!

Your Thoughts Treat your Condition

Your Thoughts Treat your Condition

Your thoughts treat your condition

Excerpt from Around the Year with Emmet Fox – August 22

You are continually “treating” your conditions with the thoughts that you hold concerning them.  What you really think about anything, is your “treatment” of that thing.  Many people have the idea that they are only “treating” when they call it “treating”, but no matter what you call it, your thought concerning any subject is a treatment.  This is the reason visible conditions are always the expression of invisible thought.

Your Thoughts Treat your Condition

If you will begin systematically to treat every side of your life with a series of positive and correct thoughts, and keep to this practice for a few weeks, you will be amazed to find how much everything will change for the better.

… be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind… (Romans 12:2)

How will you use your thoughts today?

Your Beliefs Create Your Income

Your Beliefs Create Your Income

I continue to find out more and more about the way I grew up and where my beliefs came from.  I did not know that your beliefs create your income.  I find it your beliefs create your incomefascinating that the very fabric of our society is deliberately designed to STOP you from becoming financially independent.  It is literally geared toward keeping the majority of people, the 98%, in the mindset of needing things, needing more and never actually teaching the way to use knowledge to build wealth. 

This is the reason that I had the beliefs I had growing up.  I thought that I needed to follow along with the majority and be realistic and get through schooling, get a great paying job and then at some point if I acquired enough things, then I would live a happy and fulfilled life.

The truth is I had a great childhood and felt loved and made lots of loving and lasting relationships over the years.  I have a strong bond with my family today and would not have had my upbringing any other way.  My mother always told me that I was a blue streak of lightening and I believed her!  At some point I lost touch with that belief and it spilled over into my beliefs around money and wealth and eventually what goals I would or would not set in my life.  I don’t know when it happened but I have been trying to get to the root of it so that I don’t transmute it to my children. I want them to know the importance of wealth beyond wanting the next best video product.  I want my children to know that they are powerful beings having a human experience and they can create anything that suits them and I want the belief to stick!  I want my kids to take with them through their experience in this society and this world no matter what opinions they encounter along the way.

If you’re struggling financially, or just simply don’t have enough money to do the things that you want, believe me when I tell you, it is not your fault. Your beliefs create your income in some way or another and you may just not realize this and to what extent.

Everything has been conspired to work against you in terms of your financial independence.  If you can give me a couple of minutes, here is some information I received from one of my mentors and it does explain it pretty well.

You see, if everyone had as much money as they really deserved, as much money as they were really capable of attracting into their lives, then who would do those things that have to be done?  Let me give you a really silly example.

your beliefs create your incomeIf everyone had $10,000,000 – most people wouldn’t go to work anymore. So the questions that comes from that are things like:  Who would work in the factories to produce our toilet paper?

And even if it was produced, who would drive the trucks to deliver it to the stores?

And even if it got to the stores, who would unload the trucks, put it on the shelf and then sell it at the check-out?

And who would work at the gas stations so you  can fill your car with petrol to drive to the supermarket?

In fact, who would work on the oil refineries to make the oil that makes the petrol in the first place?

Do you see the point?

Your Beliefs Create Your Income

If governments made it a high priority to teach people how to make a lot of money, and they did that right  from day one, then, right now, our society would not function any more.  Money would be worthless, because everyone has so
much of it, that no one needs it any more.  So instead, we are taught at school just the right  information to get us a job in the workplace, but not so much that we would all be able to attract enough  money so we could do whatever we wanted.

We’re brainwashed right from the moment we are born that the only way for us is to work for someone else, doing a job that’s ok (if we’re lucky), so that we can retire at 65 and live the last of our lives on some pension (if your lucky)
that is barely enough to buy a months toilet paper these days. Your beliefs create your income and you didn’t know that you were starting this “file” during your childhood.  These beliefs have been stored away for years and you may not even know they are there.

Your Beliefs Create Your Income

I am so grateful that I have found personal development and mindset mastery to enable me to change my beliefs.  The beliefs that I have today are not based on society and not based on  the opinions of others.  I have a vision for my future and I have learned how to create a plan and then to take actions on it to acheive my goal.  I am the master of my own ship and I live the life I choose.  I choose to live a life connected to my source – this infinite universe where everything is connected.  

I am running a business today and am involved with community of people that support and uplift me and my vision.  Our collective vision and products will help to develop the mindset and inner personal power in anyone who wishes to take on the challenge.  Your beliefs create your income because YOU are the only variable to your success.  I must warn you , this kind of thinking goes against the majority (the 98%). 

 If you are ready to be uplifted and find out why your beliefs create your income you can start by implimenting true wealth building lessons and universal lasws into your life or your business.  You can learn to think like the 2%, come and join us – if you dare – you will love the ride!  Take the 56 day challenge here, your life will be transformed or your money back – it is really that simple.

To your abundance,

Direct Selling featured in Wall Street Journal

Direct selling found in The Wall Street Journal and is educating the business world about the promise of the direct selling industry in today’s economy.

Scott Van Winkle, CFA, is a Research Analyst at Canaccord Genuity, known for serving institutional and corporate clients through investment banking, research, sales and trading services.  He says, “I think there is finally broad confidence in the direct selling model in the private equity community.” Interest overall does appear to be growing.  Financial advisors and investors both are seeing direct selling companies with new eyes, focusing on the efficient business model, rapid growth, and generally low on-going capital investment after the initial surge. Van Winkle says, “I don’t go a week now without getting a phone call from a private equity firm looking at a direct selling asset, and that was just nonexistent 5 years ago.” It appears that wise investors are getting in now.

Home Business Industry Creating Millionaires

Home Business Industry Creating Millionaire

Home-Business-Creating-MillionairesHere is some information that makes me hopeful for the future of our world and the future of my children.  This is just an excerpt from the report.  For the full report you can go to the independent review website http://www.home-business-consumer-review.com/index.html

Ten million new millionaires will be created by 2016

The 21st century will be known as the age of the entrepreneur, and you can stake your claim to being one of these next 10 million millionaires.

As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, we are seeing a convergence of economic forces along with advancements in technology, the internet and telecommunications leading to an enormous opportunity for those engaged in home-based business.

Home Business Industry Creating Millionaires

Moreover, this opportunity exists not only for mere thousands, but for literally millions of “ordinary people”, individual entrepreneurs who were not born into wealthy families, but who choose to apply themselves in the new and emerging industries where this new wealth is being created.

Overall Numbers and Success Rates on the Rise
As the economy clings stubbornly to a recession, the home-based business market still continues to grow. With record levels of unemployment and job uncertainty for those still employed, the investigation of home businesses and start-ups increases. Here are some statistics:

  • Home Business Growth: According to the Small Business Administration, there are more than 25.8 million home-based business operating in the US, and these make up 53 percent of all small businesses. The number of home-based businesses ranges up to 38 million, depending on who is doing the counting (U.S. Census statistics). According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of home-based businesses in the U.S. exceeds 18.3 million businesses.
  • Home Office Households: In addition to home business activity, between 34.3 million and 36.6 million U.S. households have active home offices (research firm IDC), and these numbers are growing substantially. The number of U.S. households that operate a full or part-time home-based business exceeds 12 percent (Office of Advocacy, Small Business Administration).   Home Business Industry Creating Millionaires
  • Success Rate of Home Businesses: According to the Home Based Business Institute, about 79 percent of home-based businesses will last over a three-year period (compared to 29% outside the home business ventures). The higher success rate is due to the ability for home-businesses to be operated part-time around a day job. A recent IDC survey indicates that the average income for income-generating home office households is $63,000 a year.

The Home Business Industry is Creating Millionaires… will you be one of them?

Manifest your desire by who you are being. The BE, DO, HAVE principle

BE, Do, Have…

The BE, DO, HAVE Principle
This was a pretty foriegn concept to me most of my life. I was always getting ready to be ready to live the life I wanted and be the person I wanted to be. My mentor would say if you are not getting the results you want “look at who you are being“. Who are you being? I would ask myself that question and just be perplexed at the answer. The Be Do Have principle is pretty simple once you truly understand how powerful it really is. I always seemed to wonder why I was wanting something and was not creating or having the life I wanted. Once I really understood that I controlled who I was being and used this principle, my life really started to transform! Do you understand the power of Be, Do, Have?

It comes back to the principle of Being the person you want to be and then you Do what that person would do, to Have what they would have. So how do you start to do this? It starts with your thoughts. Your thoughts are constantly creating your beliefs. EVery action starts with a thought. When you think you can or can’t do something, you affirm it in your action. The “doing” is the action based your beliefs about yourself. Then, of course, we manifest or “have” what we think we can have.
Get this, being is the acting “as if” or behaving in a way that resonates with our future self. Whether that future self is one month from now, one year or five years. We’re behaving as if we’ve already achieved the goal of our future self. We are grateful for everything that is right now.

Then here’s the important part. A small space of time of choosing to “be that person” and actually taking the action of doing as that person. You see, the only way to get to that future self is by moving with action.
So, you’re always faced with choice, Am I being the person I said I’m being? Or “Who am I Being right now?”
It happens in that small space of time when what we say we want and then faced with the choice of moving toward it or ignoring what we just said we wanted, is moving us toward our goal or away from it.
When we move toward our goals, even by the smallest of steps, we are moving closer to who we say we desire to be than we were a moment ago.

If I decide I’m going to be artist. I start thinking and moving through life as a great artist. The actions I take are based on what I think about being a great artist.
Do I believe it? Can I see myself living this way? Do I feel good when creating art?
I practice and practice. I put my art out there to be seen. I start to have results through my being and doing. People start asking to me about my art and ask me to do shows. Private collectors call for showings and they purchase my art. Magazine articles are written about my work and I am more and more recognized as a great artist. I put out the vibration that I am a great artist and move that way in my life….Be Do Have!

One of my most favorite and powerful affirmations I use and love is “You must be the change you want to see in others.”-Gandhi

Children understand about Being when they are actively using their imaginations or role playing. Remember deciding to be a pirate, princess or cowboy? While imagining, this is who they are Being, a pirate, princess and a cowboy and nobody can tell them any differently! Be childlike and just BE!

Manifestation starts with your thoughts.
Begin by asking. Ask for what you want. Be crystal clear about what you desire and as detailed as possible.
Believe that you can have it. Do you believe? If there is even the smallest internal voice that doubts and says, “No, you can’t really have that” then you will actually repell that which you desire.
You must believe with all of your heart that you can have it. If you answered no, there is work to be done on your end.
Receive it. Be open to receiving or allowing. Your desires are seeking you, just as you are seeking them, that is why you have the desire in the first place. Put yourself in receiving mode and allow it to come into your life.

You want to put yourself in alignment with your goals. You can do that by visualizing. Visualization allows you to connect with your future goals through emotion or a mental mind movie that you create in your mind and visualize it over and over again so that finaly you experience it.

So, what can you do to manifest a desire quickly?
* Create a vision board. A vision board is a a board full of pictures of all your desires. It allows you to have a visual reminder of what you are manifesting. You can make a mind movie and watch it a few times per day. Actively visualizing your goals already achieved, you are already the person you want to be, a few times per day.
* Have your goals written down in pen on paper. Goal setting is another tool in manifesting. If you don’t know where you are going, how do you expect to get there? Goals are the blueprint for manifesting.
* Manifesting with powerful intentions. Your thoughts create your words which create your feelings and dictate your actions. You are therefore constantly creating so you mind as well create what it is that you really want! Manifest through your intentions.
* Be Do Have principle. You can manifest a desire by who you are being. It is important to understand that you must BE the person first.
If you want to manifest a successful business, as a seven figure earner as an entrepreneur, you must first be the person that has a successful enterprise and earns a seven figure income. How would they move through day, their life? Would thehe attend social events or would he stay home? Would he join a club? Would he have friends over to dinner? Would they join a millionaire mastermind group? What would this kind of income make your life look like and feel like? How would you dress? Where would you live? What kind of car would you drive? What charities would you support? How would you treat yourself and others? How much of your time would be devoted to your family, to your business? How would you feel with this kind of life? Hold that feeling each time you are doing your visualizations.
BE that person! DO as they would do and you will HAVE what they have.

What is happening to home sales and realtors?

We were curious about the market and what homes sales were doing.

We decided to put our house on the market and find out what we could get. We know that we would love to move to a better home that costs less. We wanted to know what was going on in our area with home sales.

We chose a local realtor that we have used to purchase and sell homes with before to keep things easy. We used a listing price that would just get us what we actually owed on the mortgage which was of course against the realtors advice. Just as the realtor had advised, but that we were hoping would not happen. We got zero showings and therefore no offers. A few years ago when we bought the house the market was extremly inflated. Now we will have to wait it out and see what will become of home sales in the future.

So we let the listing expire and since then we have had realtors scratching at the door! Realtors are not just calling but are stopping by our home. We have realtors coming by and asking to chit chat. They leave fllyers in the doorjam and deliver cards and brochures. Is this what real estate sales has become – door to door sales?

I have never experienced anything like this in the years of buying and selling homes. Just another sign that the housing market and home sales in general have totally changed and real estate is a very different game today. Maybe the business of real estate has changed so much that it is now envoking a elemarketing “hounding” mindset in some. I hope not!
