Cartoons – How to avoid NEGATIVE people!

July 2, 2009

Do you hang out with ‘can’t do’, ‘no way’ and ‘I’ll never be good at anything’ sort of people? BEWARE, because we become like the people we associate with! Then you’ll constantly be discouraged, on a downer and depressed. Instead, surround yourself with positive people those who can inspire and motivate you so you can, should, and do take action.

Hiding under desk from Mr.Negative!

Avoid negative people and don’t feel guilty about it – period!

Maybe you have a friend who needs to challenge everything you say – avoid them!

Avoid negative people at work.Don’t pick up the phone or answer the door if a certain negative individual is calling or coming by.(See above cartoon!)

Turn the television off during news briefs that focus on what’s wrong in your community or even the world. Negative news travels fast – very fast!(Do you think all this recession would be as bad if it wasn’t for the press/media going on about it all the time?)

Avoid reading newspapers, books or magazines that may portray or write a story on negative people.

Don’t get sucked into negative conversations.

Here’s some proactive steps you can take to align ourselves with positive people:  You could also visit this blog everyday!

Visit other online forums and get involved with positive discussions.

Go to local community events, clubs or groups.

Organize a positive mentoring group.

Listen to upbeat music, instead of talk show radio programs.

In negative conversations change the subject to something positive so that you don’t get sucked in.

Find other avenues of socializing as opposed to drinking in bars, such as joining clubs, going for walks in the park or opting for a nice dinner out on the town instead. (With exception to bars like this…)

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 11

June 22, 2009

REASON # 11 – You have something that you have
always wanted to do, but never got around to doing
it. And you know you never will.

I always wanted to do what I am doing now…I just didn’t
realise it.

Now I am fulfilling my dream, against all the odds. Many
people I know wish that they could do this…or do that…
but they always somehow find an excuse why they can’t.

Everybody has an interest, hobby, or skill that they could
happily get lost in for a few hours. If you think that you
may not…you are probably not thinking hard enough!

The key to finding out what it is you really love to do is
to ask yourself this question -

“What thing would you happily pay to be able to do?”

If “watch TV” is the answer…you’ll have to try harder!

Sometimes…you may not even realise that you are doing it.
For example…I have a good friend of mine who is a good
talker…he could strike up a conversation with a passer-by
within 2 seconds of meeting them. It’s a talent that comes
naturally to him.

To me…he’s an ideal

- Network marketer
– Salesman
– Real estate agent

Or any number of occupations where “relationshipping” is the
key to getting on and being successful.

If he worked in one of those fields…I am sure that he
would be a success. Instead…he just ‘treads water’ in a
job that pays him well but he gets nothing from it.

All he needs is a job where he gets paid to talk!

Look into how you might be able to make a living from your
talent. Someone, somewhere must make money doing something
similar to what you like to do.

Make sure that if you really want to do something, turn the
‘but’ into a ‘how’ and go for it!

===========================================================

Well, that’s the end of this special free
report – I hope that you got something of value from it.

Thanks for finding out about the “11 Reasons Why You Will
Never Succeed”.

I sincerely hope that this course has benefited you…and
maybe given you a kick-start to get back on track to
achieving the success you deserve.

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 10

June 19, 2009

REASON # 10 – You worry what your family and
friends would think about you if you read or listened
to self-development material.

Im going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I'm going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I was always embarrassed about reading self-development
books on the train into work.

That was until I realised who was still going to be on the
same train in five years time, and I knew it wasn’t going to
be me!

I still get raised eyebrows from my family, but I will be
the one who is smiling when I achieve what I know that I can
achieve. Only this evening…my sister laughed out loud when
I told her that my eBook was called “The Science of Success”

But…at least I am doing what I want to do.

I take my personal development seriously.

Others may ridicule you…or laugh behind your back…but
they will be the jealous ones when you reach your dream…
and they are still stuck in never-never land!

So the moral of the story is…

Do what you want to do with your life…and not what others
say you should do.

Cartoon movie for Everything Counts web site!

June 16, 2009

The above cartoon video was produced with Gary Ryan Blair of The Goals Guy. Gary emailed me the audio file and I  listened to this and jotted down ideas, created all the cartoons to suit the script and emailed them back to him. There was some going backwards and forwards before we got all the cartoons right. It was something new for me to work on and was very challenging. A very enjoyable project!

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 9

June 15, 2009

REASON # 9 – You worry more about job security,
than how happy you are.

Enjoy your ONE life!

Enjoy your ONE life!

Job security is all in your mind.

How do you know that the company you work for will be around
in a year’s time, let alone ten year’s time? If you dread
waking up on a Monday morning…

- Find a different job, or
– Find a way to supplement your income so that you can leave
and do what you would really love to do.

I went against my wife and family and quit my job, despite
having no savings. I quit to do this. It’s what I want to do
with my life. Period.

Two years ago, I was counting the years to I retired at 60
with a full two-thirds pension. So what changed?

I changed…because the world won’t.

I decided that I couldn’t be unhappy for 40+ hours a week
…I decided that I wanted to see my family grow up…I
decided that I wanted to help my wife more with our
disabled son.

I decided to do what I wanted to do…and not what society
expects me to do. That’s why I wrote my eBook -
“The Science of Success”

I had a good career…with a decent salary. But I realised
that we are here to enjoy life…and not to struggle with
life. I have seen enough miserable people who work 70+
hours a week and have a fantastic salary…yet their kids
hardly know them.

It’s your life…and you only get one shot at it.

So you might as well enjoy it!

I hope that this part of the report has shown you
that there are more ways to be a success, other than what
can be measured in monetary terms.

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 8

June 11, 2009

REASON # 8 – You believe that you can only make
money if you have money.

You Cant Beat A Great Desire!

You Can't Beat A Great Desire!

If you were to analyse how self-made millionaires made their
fortune, you would undoubtedly find that most of them started
with practically nothing.

With opportunities such as Network Marketing and the Internet
ordinary people have the opportunity to start a business at
very little cost. The degree of effort, and not the amount of
money, separates the rich from the poor.

Why is it that when you look at the Western world there is a
higher proportion of ethnic-minority millionaires than in the
general population? Part of it may be in the difference in
cultures…but the biggest reason is DESIRE.

How many stories do you read year after where millionaires
are interviewed…and they say that they came to America with
only the clothes on their back?

Because they appreciate how lucky they are…and what an
opportunity it is for them…they work…and work…and work.

They work until they become successful. Money doesn’t come
into the equation.

Success is a feeling…it isn’t an amount.

Once you realise that, you will realise that money is just a
part of the overall package.

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 7

June 10, 2009

REASON # 7 – You look at what you can buy with
your salary increase – not how much you can save.

I know many people that have homes to die for. The only
problem is that their mortgage is bigger than the house!

The equation is simple – if you increase your borrowings in
line with your salary you will be poor when you retire. If
you increase your savings in line with your salary you will
become rich when you retire. It’s really that simple.

In the classic book “The Richest Man in Babylon”, George S.
Clason wrote that if you saved 10% of your salary every
month…you would become rich. Although the book was written
in the early 20th century…it’s probably more relevant than
ever.

Save a proportion of your salary every month…even if it is
only 1%. And make sure that you cannot easily access it. If
you do this…not only will you have some money behind you
…but you will also get into the habit of saving.

Believe me…once you get into that habit…you will get as
much pleasure from saving and investing as you do from
spending.

It may seem unbelievable to you…but take my word for it -
it’s true!

Cartoon to illustrate – No FREE lunches!

June 5, 2009

“There ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, ‘I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it.’ It’s called perseverance.”

Lee Iacocca
Businessman and Former CEO of Chrysler

Perseverence - I want it bad enough!

Perseverance. - I want it bad enough!

Here’s a few of my other favourite motivational and inspirational quotes…

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t. – Henry Ward Beecher

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs.  Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger.  If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.   – Dale Carnegie

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART-4

May 15, 2009

REASON # 4 – You do not know EXACTLY where
you want to be in five years time.

It’s not good enough to think that you know where you want
to be.

I am a firm believer in goal-setting…but I look at it a
little differently. Goals can do more harm than good. If
you look at your life now…could you have predicted where
you would be 5 years ago? I very much doubt it.

Life is complicated. Our priorities can change minute-by-
minute let alone year-by-year. Not reaching your targets
can have such a negative affect on your life. So…

Focus only on THE goal.

Focus on what you really, really want. You almost
certainly won’t know how you will get there…so how will
you be able to plan each step? Instead of looking at what
you need to do…look at what you shouldn’t be doing.

Remove from your life the tasks that don’t help towards
THE goal…and you will free up your time for tasks that
will move you towards it.

When you are moving towards THE goal…strange things
happen. Little things start to go in your favor…
opportunities present themselves when you least expect it.

THE goal begins to come to you as you move towards it…
but it will only move if you do.

I can honestly say that it worked for me. Doors that I had
assumed were closed suddenly began to open up to me as I
was writing my eBook – “The Science of Success”.
