TO SERVE

What does it mean to serve? Some people believe it means to be the poorest or to have the lowest job. Jesus said, the last shall be first and the first shall be last. I had a boss years ago that always took all the garbage out and I remember others trying to take it out for him and he would never let anyone else take it out. One day, I asked him why he always took the garbage out and why he never let anyone else do it and he told me that he did it to keep himself humble. I thought this was so interesting . Later in my life, I learned that to be the best leader, you must serve others. 

What is it that all great leaders have in common?

  • SEE the future

  • ENGAGE and DEVELOP others

  • REINVENT Continuously

  • VALUE Results and Relationships

  • EMBODY the Values

From: “The Secret: What Great Leaders Know” by: Ken Blanchard & Mark Miller

Always be on the lookout for people that possess the same values, talents and passions that are most important to you. You want like-minded people, who will have a passion for what you do. “People will not give you their hand, until they can see your heart.” by: John Maxwell You must get to know your followers and make sure they know, how much you appreciate them. “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” From the book: “The Secret: What Great Leaders Know” by: Ken Blanchard & Mark Miller “Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve” by: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

BE A MAGNET!

Everyone wants to be liked! Learn how to have more friends, a new love and prospects for your business. I’ve been reading a book, that has been truly eye opening, “The Secret Laws of Attraction: The Effortless Way to Get the Relationship You Want” by Talane Miedaner. It doesn’t matter if you want to have better relationships or attract more prospects to your business, this book is very helpful for both. Have you ever wondered why you need to be acknowledged, taken care of, in charge, be independent, be right all the time, have things in order, be responsible or have great integrity and honesty? We all have needs and if our needs aren’t met, we have a hard time with whatever we are trying to accomplish. “The only way to get past a need is to fill it.” by Talane Miedaner The good news is, there are things we can do to get our needs met! The book mentions, if one of your biggest needs is to accomplish, achieve, get results, you could write things down that you have accomplished, so you can see that you have met this need.
If you come across needy or desperate, because you haven’t made sure that your needs are met, people will notice it and it will not have a positive outcome in your relationships and in your business either. So, if we figure out what our most important needs are and work on getting them met, you will find, not only that you’re happier, but also that your relationships get better and you will become like a magnet, in your life and business. I highly recommend this book, just remember that it’s not just a book to read, but a book to work through, as well. The more we learn about ourselves, the more sincere we can be in our lives.

Empathy & Sympathy

The two words, empathy and sympathy are similar, however anyone can say, “I’m sorry you’re sick or I’m sorry you’ve lost a love one”. It takes personal experience, to be able to be empathetic. Empathy is much more sincere and heartfelt; as much as a sympathetic person  wants to be, it just isn’t possible. Empathy takes personal experience and turns it into a wonderful connection with another person, who has been through what you have. This is really a true gift and it’s unique to each person.

In life, when we go through difficulties, the human reaction would normally be, “why me?” The Bible states that we’re to embrace the difficulties that we face and even look forward to them. I Thessalonians 5:18, NIV, “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Also, in James 1:2-4, NIV, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance, Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” I’ve personally been through a lot in my life and it’s made me a better person, but at the time I was going through it, the difficulty was hard. The more experiences we have in life, the more empathy we can have for others. We can understand others, like nobody else can.

In order to be successful in marketing, you must really get to know your target audience, so that you can empathize with them and therefore connect. If you understand what they need or want, you can meet those for them. The 3 universal feelings that people need to be motivated to do business with someone, are trust, confidence and a feeling of being taken care of.” -Renee Houston Zamanski You really need to be able to step into your target audience shoes, so that you can reach them and help fulfill their needs or wants. So, in life and business, let’s always strive to connect with others!

PAY IT FORWARD

I just watched the movie, Pay It Forward, for the 3rd time. I really love this movie, it’s sad, but so inspirational. If you haven’t seen the movie,I don’t want to ruin it for you. You really should see it for yourself! It came out in October 2000, it’s rated PG-13 and is 123 minutes in length. Some of the stars in the movie are: Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment. If you want all the details, you can go to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0223897/ A young boy attempts to make the world a better place, after his teacher gives him that chance. It really makes you think about life. We don’t know how much our actions touch a life/lives for good or bad, depending on what the action was. We’re all on a path in our lives and we don’t know how long that path will last. What do you want people to think and say about you, when your path is over? Everyday in life and business, we make decisions. We can choose to do things that make a negative impact on our world or we can choose to make a positive impact. I know we all have days when we feel sick or down. On our normal days, let’s make the decision to make a positive impact on our world, whatever that looks like.

Being a christian, I know that I must do my devotions; reading the Bible and spending time in prayer everyday, to be successful. I must also remember to be patient with others and think of others above myself. I also need these things to be a good wife and mother, especially with special needs children. We must not only read the Bible, but also do what the Bible says and tell others what Jesus Christ has done for them.

Being an entrepreneur, I know that I have to make sure that I’m working on myself, to make sure that my mindset is right to be successful. An entrepreneur has to do things that most people don’t want to, to sacrifice things that most people aren’t willing to sacrifice. Things that might seem trivial, but make all the difference. There is a saying, I’ve heard many times that you have to be willing to do what others won’t do, so you can have what others want. We have to know our strengths and weaknesses. Personally, I have to stay in the right mindset, by reading and listening to motivating authors and speakers everyday. I also have to be around positive people and get the encouragement to keep on working. I must be persistent doing the things that make someone successful. Be persistently consistent. You must be willing to do all these things, without the promise of reward, which is the hardest part. The young boy in the movie did things that most people won’t do and he did get to see some of the rewards from his hard work, but most of the rewards showed up after he was gone. We’ll always reap what we sow. So many positive things happened as a result of what the boy did when he was alive. It really is amazing what we can do, when we make the commitment to do them and follow through. The boy affected so many people, positively by the things he did. He taught so many to do the right thing and because of this, he changed lives. How many lives can we touch and change positively?

TESTIMONIALS:

“I saw Matt the first time on stage last year. He was giving a presentation for Jonathan Budd on Facebook strategies and I was really amazed by some of the information he shared because it was unlike anything I had heard before in this industry.

Anyways, a few months passed by and then he opened up his MOBE program to become a Licensee, which I did. I had my first consult with Matt just a little while ago and it was incredible. He really opened my eyes about what was missing in my business.

I made my first $500 sale pretty quickly. I’m already starting to see great results. I’m really amazed. Matt has a great sales funnel. Joining MOBE is the best thing I’ve every done.” -Raena Lynn, Nevada, USA
