It's like having a GPS in the car and trying to trick it, trying to be "better" than the GPS because I am the master of navigation. The highlight of it is trying to avoid traffic jams on the Autobahn.

We know that it's usually the best thing to remain on the motorway and not to try to avoid the traffic jam by leaving the motorway and driving on secondary roads...

Specialized knowledge for a network marketer on the internet

In "Think and grow rich" Napoleon Hill writes at the beginning of this chapter:"Knowledge will not attract money, unless it is organized, and intelligently directed, through practical PLANS OF ACTION, to the DEFINITE END of accumulation of money."

Becoming a Disciplined Person | Little Things Matter

Becoming a Disciplined Person | Little Things Matter | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
Self-discipline is a pattern of behavior where you choose to do what you know you should do, rather than what you want to do. It’s the inner power that pushes you to get out of bed to exercise rather than sleeping in. It is the assertion of willpower over more basic desires and is synonymous with self-control.

It includes having the personal initiative to get started and the stamina to persevere. Being disciplined gives you the strength to withstand hardships and difficulties, whether physical, emotional or mental. It allows forgoing immediate satisfaction, in order to gain something better, but which requires effort and time...

Sometimes You Have to Unplug to Find Your Outlet

Sometimes You Have to Unplug to Find Your Outlet | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
I never knew my dad’s outlet until just now. Driving into work this morning, I felt blank. Void. I didn’t have any words to say outwardly, but I needed to express myself inwardly.

“I need to write,” I thought, making a mental note to post that as my Facebook status. “That’s my outlet, my thing—writing.” Already I was feeling better.

What do Jesus Christ, Charles Darwin, Adolf Hitler, Martin Luther King Jr. and Vladimir Lenin have in common? Each is deemed one of the 100 Most Influential Persons in History in Michael Hart’s 1978 book.

You don’t have to like what their influence was or what they influenced people to do—that’s beside the point, and well, also the point. Each of these people influenced millions of others to do as they envisioned and directed.

Seven Personality Traits of Top Salespeople - Steve W. Martin - Harvard Business Review

Seven Personality Traits of Top Salespeople - Steve W. Martin - Harvard Business Review | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
If you ask an extremely successful salesperson, "What makes you different from the average sales rep?" you will most likely get a less-than-accurate answer, if any answer at all. Frankly, the person may not even know the real answer because most successful salespeople are simply doing what comes naturally.

Over the past decade, I have had the privilege of interviewing thousands of top business-to-business salespeople who sell for some of the world's leading companies. I've also administered personality tests to one thousand of them. My goal was to measure their five main personality traits (openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and negative emotionality) to better understand the characteristics that separate them their peers...

Love the Opportunity by Jim Rohn : Inspirational Quotes - Personal Development - Motivational Quotes & More - Jim Rohn International

Love the Opportunity by Jim Rohn : Inspirational Quotes - Personal Development - Motivational Quotes & More - Jim Rohn International | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
Somebody said you have to love what you do, but that’s not necessarily true. What is true is that you have to love the opportunity. The opportunity to build life, future, health, success and fortune. Knocking on someone’s door or making that extra call may not be something you love to do, but you love the opportunity of what might be behind that door or call.

For example, a guy says, “I’m digging ditches. Should I love digging ditches?” The answer is, “No, you don’t have to love digging ditches, but if it is your first entry onto the ladder of success, you say, ‘I’m glad somebody gave me the opportunity to dig ditches and I’m going to do it so well, I won’t be here long.’”...

2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

You Hold the Key to your success

You Hold the Key to  your success | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
The world is constantly changing. There's new things to learn, new people to meet and new things to do every day. It can be a bit overwhelming if you let it. Yet always remember that you hold the key.

Do you listen to the media? Do you watch television? Are you engaged with news shows (local, national or international), documentaries, sports, knowledge based shows (Discovery, National Geographic, etc.), sitcoms and dramas or do you just bury yourself in trashy reality shows?

Are you trying to stay up to date with all that "social media" provides? Are you engaged in Facebook and Twitter? Do you try and share relevant content and engage in two-way communication with your friends and followers or are you simply more of a listener or voyeur?

Do you read blogs? Do you participate in on-line discussions on topics that interest you, inspire you or maybe even challenge you?

Are you leveraging video to reach your clients? You need to be watching them, sharing them and creating them to get in front of more people.

Have you upgraded your technology so you're using the newest phones, cameras, computers, tablets and navigational devices?

The world is constantly changing. Are you changing with it?...

This is a must read post for all!

That Fireworks Feeling of Celebration!

Remember when you first were going to see the fireworks? It wasn’t that different from the first day of school or the first day of that new fabulous job! And if you’ve ever started your own business, the first day you’ve got things in order to launch is certainly a time worth celebrating with fireworks!

Then come the days that follow that often get filled with more work and a little less of that brand-new feeling that made everything easy at that very first. I’ve been taken by the thought of how much fun it is when we get back with our heads, hearts and our hands in our business and everything once again works.

Why Your ‘Why Nots’ Are Lame

Why Your ‘Why Nots’ Are Lame | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
Most people only live a fraction of their potential. You do what you CAN do… but are you doing what you COULD do? I know that sounds like a tongue twister but read over it again, slowly. Most people do what they CAN do, but not what they COULD do. Most people accomplish what they can accomplish and are usually satisfied with that. But there is a whole other world of possibilities out there that most of us don’t even let ourselves think about.

The larger question we need to ask ourselves is: Can we reach a greater potential than we have ever imagined?

The revelation is this: The way we were… is over. As you know, we are living through an era of unprecedented change. Over the last decade, we began hearing the death rattle of a bygone era. The corporate structure and system has begun to crumble.

The global marketplace has been flattened. Innovative, fast-moving and nimble competition has risen from nearly all corners of the planet. Technology has wired us all directly to each other. Now every manufacturer or marketer has immediate and direct access to everyone, everywhere, destroying heavily controlled and highly valued distribution channels.

Have you declared independance?

Have you declared independance? | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
"Leaders are individuals who have declared independence from the expectations of others" – Dr Myles Munroe

The leader does not worry about what others expect of him. He knows what needs to be done and and he understands the needs of his team.
He does not concern himself with what others expect or want him to do.

He always has the best interest of his team in mind, but does not allow himself to be manipulated by popular opinions.

He leads with authority and independence.

You can be such a leader!

Don't Worry About What You Can't Control

Don't Worry About What You Can't Control | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
This is lesson #48 from my book Little Things Matter, 100 Ways to Improve Your Life Today.

If you are like most people you probably spend more time worrying than you should. Worrying about job security, project deadlines, health, shrinking budgets, rising taxes, the housing market, world poverty, our children’s safety, even the weather. Some things we can control, others we clearly cannot. The key to maintaining a positive attitude in life is to know the difference.

I heard years ago that 92 percent of the things people worry about are beyond their control.

If you are troubled about something you can control, like whether you are going to lose your job, then step up your game. Come in early, stay late, offer to work on a weekend, or volunteer to take on additional responsibilities; do anything you can think of to increase your value. If you end up losing your job, you can bet you’ll get a better reference...

The Power of Non-Verbal Communication

The Power of Non-Verbal Communication | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
You have no doubt heard the proverb—Actions speak louder than words.

It’s true. Your body is a crucial part of communicating your inner feelings. Of course, we can’t communicate ideas, thoughts, and plans without words. However, the way people interpret those words is tremendously influenced by our non-verbal communication.

In her research, Dr. Isa Engleberg (Professor of Speech at Prince George College) has suggested that between 60 and 70 percent of all meaning—understanding—is derived from our body language.

What is body language? It’s a form of non-verbal communication consisting of facial expressions, eye movements, gestures, and posture. Here are a few examples:

Face: smiling shows happiness; frowning shows disapproval.
Eyes: attentive gaze shows interest; rolling the eyes shows disgust.
Gestures: nodding the head shows agreement; tapping fingers on table shows boredom or impatience.
Posture: leaning forward shows eagerness, acceptance, or interest; slumped over shows discouragement...

Gandhi’s Top 10 Fundamentals for Changing the World

Gandhi’s Top 10 Fundamentals for Changing the World | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problem.”

“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”

Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947.

So let’s just move on to some of my favourite tips from Mahatma Gandhi.

1. Change yourself.

“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.”

If you change yourself you will change your world. If you change how you think then you will change how you feel and what actions you take. And so the world around you will change. Not only because you are now viewing your environment through new lenses of thoughts and emotions but also because the change within can allow you to take action in ways you wouldn’t have – or maybe even have thought about – while stuck in your old thought patterns....
