10 Questions: Do You Have What It Takes?

Do you have what it takes to be really successful?
Have you ever thought about what you must be prepared to endure and do in order to be successful in business or your career?

I think I have been asked at least 5,000 times what it really takes to be successful in business, so I jotted down 10 questions you can use to gauge whether you already have what it takes, or if you need to do a little "work" to get there.

Many years ago I heard Jim Rohn say that you either pay the price of discipline or the price of regret. Discipline weighs ounces…regret weighs tons!

With that said, here are 10 questions to ask yourself:

1. Are you disciplined?
2. Do you take rejection personally? What about criticism?
3. Do you bounce back quickly from making errors or failing over and over again?
4. Are you a planner or do you do things by the seat of your pants?
5. Are you prepared to take risks? Moderate or Big?
6. Do you stay focused on one thing and one thing only until the result you want is achieved?
7. Do you have the stamina to keep going long after everyone else is tired?
8. Can you delegate well, or are you the only one who can do things right?
9. Do you wait for things to happen or do you aggressively go after what you want?
10. Do you do whatever it takes to achieve your goals or just what's convenient?

These questions are critical for you to ask yourself in order to get a true picture of your nature and behavior.
What I have found is that successful people are aware of the consequences of not being efficient in these areas, and find other ways, resources or people to manage for them.

Food for thought?

Remember to create a masterpiece!

A telephone listing is different from a business card. The genereal public has access to all information listed.

tip: read the phone book for leads..it takes imagination..for a direct mail campaign

be sure to include your URL

Let's buy our own plan. What does this statement mean? "Buying this can open your mind", because actions speak louder than words..

Floating around the internet is a list of ways to acquire and keep customers.

A thought that keeps crossing my mind every day is" sorry didn't do it."

Fraud and non-tangiblity, is not a good combination.

Are you showing the right kind of desire to have your potential customers business?

Can your goal be seen from the outst? Can the average person achieve that goal?

As most internet based network opportunities have prepared scripts for your use: How do you use them?

Think: If it seems I'm not willing; why should anyone else be". Auto-responders are great,

maybe only if you have 10,000 plus interested people.

Do you use the script, to save time.

Think: Why not just a short note.

I am really interested in----------------?

Sure everybody uses ----------------,

Why not try something new ?

It won't take long to just look......(www.????)

Keeping customers, some claim is as easy as the use of your website correctly. Use a short URL, maybe a picture, along

with a short describtion and a re-direction click.

Have you ever listened to tension over the phone? There are millions of websites on the www and a replicated site is

difficult . Carmen Bethel presents doesn't appeal like David S. Miller presents.

My mailbox: Have you ever seen a magazine assemblied around one product? I have two such

magazines both "World Class". One is much better than the other.

The reason ...4 pages, 3 pages of adds and coupons and the 4th page is 1/2 page of word content.

The final page count is about 50 pages.

The product is nationwide, and there is a free sample offered for each advertised product.

I have bought this product many times.

Could you do this for your opportunity, product or business?

The opt-in in all the above can be your opt-in call out..

So, your piciking up on trust. You need to depend

on the weather, your environment and surroundings, encouragement; no matter what the


Trust is a two way street.

Picking up on changing health issues and moods. Picking up on a need for patience, in waiting

for the window of opportunity.

Sometimes it's just feelings, so Keep on truckin'.

How to get started is to start. You've decided to do, to be , start to see it as done.

Your goal is the new you. You are what you want to accomplish.

"Losers let it happen. Winners make it happen".

Remember the big Christmas buying season is all year round.

So, the season for business is all year round.

No one can do it for you.

Opt-in to find incentive to try to meet goals.

What is your stance: Do you believe what you see... or see what you believe?

Keep it up, we may establish communication via intentional thought. I, we, all.

The collective wins. Do not accept limits. Grow with Universal Abundance.

Go to sleep with intention - Awaken with intention - Guide others (with internal conflict) to living purposely!

Give without expectation.

Receive openly. Live Abundantly! Provide others with though not yet thought of for their benefit.

go for what you know


Life has no pretty pictures

you only have a glimpse of a view..

Memory is based on pride

I remember monday..

what's the rest of the week got to do with anything?





ever need to relax?

Who is doing real good!  Who is making money!  Who has been doing this a while!
That is where your lead is!
Remember the old timey travel suitcase, with all the memorabilia stickers?  That
is your new network you are duplicating.
Make plans, your off and running.
Your going to start a story only you know how to tell.  Open your suitcase and
relate from it, make appointments and meetings.
You will duplicate your entire journey.  A joutney begins with it's first step.
Your traveling at your own pace, it will take as long as yu can wait.
