Use “The KEY” To Unlock The Secret

In the 10 Minute MBA program I show you how to improve your business performance by consistently following a straightforward business development and control program. I clearly state that if you follow this program and implement it properly, your business revenue and profits will absolutely increase substantially. I continue to stand stronger than ever behind that statement.

Business principles are at the foundation of The 10 Minute MBA program. Once I know these principles and have demonstrated them to work, I feel it is my responsibility to teach them and I do.

There is another set of priniples, laws actually, that I have learned and feel equally responsible for teaching. These are the Laws of the Universe. I didn’t always know these Laws like I do now. However, at one point a couple of years ago I woke up to the song “Hey What’s Going On?” I was going backwards fast. A downward spiral would be an accurate description.

Right about this time Joe Vitale released The Attractor Factor and that started me along the path of personal self-development that I am on today. That is a long story and the point of today’s message is that I now teach business principles and the Laws of The Universe. You may not like that thread. That is fine. “When The Student is Ready The Teacher Will Appear” In my case there is a growing group of teachers.

Do you or someone you know have challenges with their finances, health, relationships or possibly with their general outlook on life? There are a huge number of resources to help and most of them you can get for free on line, at your library, at bookstores and at certain churches. One resource just published is the book by Joe Vitale titled “The Key”

“The Key” is very important for anyone leading a business, wanting to be an independent entrepreneur or simply wanting to be happy by moving to a new place in life. In the book Joe tells the story of having a meeting with his trainers – these are the people who are paid to mentor paying subscribers toward greater success, happiness and prosperity. They help people with the principles detailed in many of Joe’s books as well as resources by others. In that meeting Joe draws two circles. One represents where we are and the other represents where we want to be.

The discussion is about how do we move from point A to point B. We are not talking about driving from your garage to the grocery store. We are talking about moving from a state of unhappiness or disatisfaction to one of peace, contentment and bliss. (A and B are my references not Joe’s. As many who know me understand: if I cannot get an action plan defined as steps A, B & C or steps 1, 2 and 3 (maybe 5) then forget about it. The plan would be too complicated for most people to stay focused on and certainly too complicated for me to manage.)

I was fascinated by the discussion, these were the people who were hired by Joe to coach high dollar paying members on principles Joe outlined in his books like The Attractor Factor and Zero Limits. Yet according to Joe, all of these mentors seemed to give traditional answers like..”well if we make more calls we will book more sales”

Joe (I imagine) is sitting there smiling and then simply reminds us that if we do not appreciate what is happening with us at point A then there is no way we can optimize our position or even come close to getting to point B.

Some clarification may help:

If you read my post on Quantum Success then you know a foundation Universal Law is that we must demonstrate gratitude for what we have before we can receive more. I love the sentence in The Key: “I’m Totally Satisfied..I Just Want More” Think about it..there are no limits and to experience all that you want to experience in the physical plane while we are here there are certain Universal Laws that must become part of your being. Two key ones are:

First – Release ..Forgive what has happened in the past that is not serving you. You cannot replay it except in your mind and when you do, whatever it is that is eating at you is sapping your energy right now. What a waste. This does not mean you should learn from your mistakes. It simply means release what is already done. How often do you find you are reliving something in the past. I know I catch myself all the time. This use of energy does not help us appreciate the now which leads to the next Law.

Second – Gratitude for where you are at right now. I don’t care what challenges you face, financial, relationship, health it doesn’t matter. Get used to the fact that life in the physcical plane throws curve balls. Deal with it. How? Release and Gratitude. Do you think you have nothing to be grateful for? Did the sun come up? Start there.

I don’t care if you are the greatest internet marketer, a highly successful business owner a person stuggling with financial, healh or relationship issues… I just know that if you want to have the feelings of happiness, peace, contentment you must live by the Universal Laws.

I have experienced the complete transformation of a business using these principles and following the guidance as outlined in Joe Vitale’s book Zero Limits. I have applied these Laws in my own life. I am having wonderful results and now I am practicing the message ” I’m Totally Satisfied – I Just Want More” Personally I can tell you there is a lot more that I want and for once I can tell you that I am focused on being better at enjoying the moment right now. If you cannot enjoy the moment right now, what makes you think you can enjoy the moment when you have more ___ or more ____ or more____? Which is exactly why you will not have more prosperity as defined by the feelings of contentment, healthy energy, happiness until you demonstrate that you are grateful now. That simply is one of the Laws.

As I go forward and help companies achive their profit goals I will continue to help them with foundation business tools as outlined at The 10 Minute MBA. we will also be integrating the ME Factor into their business and ultimately into their personal lives. However, like this article and like the material being developed for the Prosperity Now program, reading the material is great. However, believing there are no limits for me and you and everyone on this planet requires convergence. It requires the convergence of what we do with what we think about and what influences our subconcious mind with the Source that honors no boundaries.

The following is a great affirmation:

” I live with joyous gratitude and become more and more conscious of all that I have to be thankful for. I take time to appreciate all the wonderful things to be happy about”

May you experience the unlimited love, health, happiness and prosperity that is yours for the asking!

How To Achieve Quantum Success

There is a law of the Universe that gives us more when we appreciate what we have. This is published on Thanksgiving Day in the US. It seemed like a very fitting theme.

Charles Fillmore, co-founder of the Unity Church wrote “There is an inherent law of mind that we increase whatever we praise. The whole of creation responds to praise and thankfulness.”

The summary that follows is from Sandra Anne Taylor’s book titled Quantum Success: The Astounding Science of Wealth and Happiness. Her resource material and others will be used as the foundation for our Prosperity Now program that is starting in a couple weeks.

What Is Appreciation?

Sandra writes: It’s the intention to live with gratitude, the conscious acknowledgment of the value within and around us, the willingness to notice all the good things we already have, and the desire to experience all of life this attitude. To really create this vibration, your daily life has to resonate with the awareness and gratitude in the here-and-now.

Whether you realize it or not every single time that you experience happiness, underneath it all you’re in a state of appreciation. The Universal Laws don’t budge on this point: That which you focus on will expand in your life. And if you are constantly noticing what you lack, then the deficiencies in your life will be overwhelming.”

You can lift any concern or problem away with appreciation. I love the formula for eliminating doubt, fear, anxiety, depression. She writes ” whenever you’re feeling down about something, STOP what you are doing, take a moment to become aware of what you are thinking about and then DROP the negativity, whether it is worry, judgment, or dissatisfaction of some kind. Then say “I can let this go and just DROP it. Finally COP and attitude of gratitude right away. Find something you can be thankful for in your environment right away.” Try it today – no matter how large or small the issues STOP DROP COP works.

Appreciation Journal

Everyone participating in Prosperity Now will be developing their own success journal. Part of this journal will be the “Appreciation Section” Some may find using a separate appreciation journal works even better. It doesn’t matter. The guidance is that each day write your list of what you appreciate. Now if you are in the COP part of the formula above and can’t think of anything to be grateful for, refer to your list. See “It’s All Good!”

Appreciation Affirmations

The following is a great affirmation:

” I live with joyous gratitude and become more and more conscious of all that I have to be thankful for. I take time to appreciate all the wonderful things to be happy about”

May you experience the unlimited love, health, happiness and prosperity that is yours for the asking!

Just one more thing…did you know I am now working with Randy Gage? No! Who is Randy Gage? Visit International Success

Does Rich Shefren Want To Be David Copperfield and Why ….

Why is Sterling Valentine hyping the link to the Power of Focus from Rich Shefren? Why is Rich Shefren moving to a Las Vegas style image with his promotions? I know Sterling and I don’t know Rich. Right up front I think both are terrific talent. Sterling is very bright and driven. He is, or at least he has been “on purpose”. Rich is a former Arthur Andersen consultant and an excellent marketer. I have read some of Rich Shefren’s material and feel his advice is very good.

Now you should ask: ” why do I care what Steve Pohlit thinks of Sterling or Rich Shefren or anyone else for that matter?” Good question and here is the answer. I am a very experienced businessman and not only have I bought, sold, started from scratch and consulted with companies large and small, I have a terrific track record doing so. All the details don’t matter but this does: my work continues to confirm that we as business people, marketers, Internet Marketers and more have a responsibility to share our talent and do so in a way that larger numbers of people can duplicate the principles we demonstrate.

For the past two months I have led a small group once a week in an in-depth study of some live principles. Make no mistake about this: I did this for me. What those people got out of this process was entirely up to them. I worked harder than I did for my best paying clients and I worked for no pay. I used all the talents I didn’t even know I had and more. All of this material was posted on a special web site. There is audio and wonderful material for the participants to use whenever they want. Soon there will be another series and there will be video.

“Givers Gain” is the theme of a national business networking group. I gotta tell you that after 7 weeks, I feel better than ever and I just celebrated my _ _ birthday. (The age does not matter because I have learned it is possible to become younger and I am working on that.) I gave all of my talents and in the process what happened? Members of this group are now my friends and they have asked me to expand the leadership to another topic. I will do this and we are now working on having more people benefit from this process.

I remember like it was yesterday – the first JV Alert. It was organized by Ken McArthur in Philadelphia and there were 20 people there. There was no fee – or maybe a small one that I don’t remember. We paid for our transportation to Philly, our room and meals. By the way that room was the most marvelous room I experienced in a long time. And I stay in a lot of rooms. I digress. The idea that launched Sterling incubated that weekend. Ken says he was very grateful for how without asking Sterling kept asking “how best may I help” since Ken was doing all of the heavy lifting. I rember saying to Ken – ” I don’t feel good coming to a meeting about how we can be more successful with the host driving back and forth from home because you don’t want to spend the money on a room.” Ken ultimately worked with Sterling on a historic program which as of today I don’t thing anyone has challenged. Ken also went on to further develop JV Alert and he no longer drives back and forth from home.

So you ask what is my point? I submit to you that doing business is easy. I submit to you that many people create smoke and make it seem like business is hard. When I go to Vegas I want a show – I want to be immersed in the magic. Business is not magic. It is easy to understand what works. You think I am kidding? Do you think a double cheeseburger with king sized fries is healthier than steamed vegetables with some grilled wild salmon? You know what works. If you are in business or starting a business you already know. Does this mean that Rich, Sterling, Frank, Ed, Jason, Ken, Ken. Dan, John and others should be ignored. No- do you ignore God even though you know the difference between right and wrong? I hope not.

I am saying stop all the hype. Stop the smoke and mirrors. Keep it simple. I remember one of the first System seminars organized by Ken McCarthy. I learned it is all about traffic and conversion. Many years earlier at a shareholders meeting led by Les Wexner, Chairman of The Limited who I am grateful for allowing me to work with his company, Les said “nothing ever happens in our business until a customer says: I’ll take it”

Ladies and gentlemen business is simple: whether it is on line or off line give the customer what they want. How do you know? Ask them! Right now I am working with a very successful eCommerce based company and do you know we just sent out the first marketing newsletter to a small test group and we don’t even have the survey finished. We are still guessing as to what they want and this is a hugely successful business that just happens to do a great job of selling a lot of products on line.

We don’t need David Copperfield to magically demonstrate an image that few can duplicate. We need to take our wisdom and simplify, simplify, simplify and help more people realize their potential.

May you and yours experience permanent prosperity in all areas of you life – Sterling and Rich included.
