End procrastination forever

The best way to end procrastination forever, so you can stop
being a “Pro Crastinator” and get more accomplished in less time.

Now let’s start off with a quote from Benjamin Franklin, since
we visited him last time.  He said, “Never put off ’til tomorrow
that which you can do today.”  Now there’s some pretty wise words
from ole’ Ben Franklin.

Now let me ask you a question, “In your heart of hearts are you
just a crastinator, or are you a procrastinator?”

Now that may get a little chuckle out of you, but you know what
I mean.

Procrastination is one of our big problems and roadblocks in
achieving our success.  Many times the actions that produce the
results we want never get done because we get lost in the wishes,
hopes, and maybes that everything will come about without us
taking any action to make things happen.

You see, we actually must do instead of say to achieve the
successes we desire.  By conquering procrastination, you live
a life of satisfying accomplishments.  I’d like to repeat that
again:  By conquering procrastination, you live a life of
satisfying accomplishments.

There’s a specific three word phrase that I share with my
USP success proteges (maybe you would like to know it too?)…

This is an excerpt from just one of the lessons in the
Ultimate Success Program.

When you’re ready, I invite you to join the thousands
who have applied these life lessons that I’ve put together
into a step-by-step success program.

There’s one recurring theme through all of the lessons,
and that is to take action on each and every step. If
you don’t do that, nothing will happen for you.

The law of cause and effect is real, you must be the
cause (the action) to get the desired effect (your
dreams and goals).

How to develop the courage to conquer your fears

How to develop the courage to conquer your fears

Do you avoid challenges?

Are you afraid to take a chance?

Are you just living in your comfort zone?

Are you limiting yourself by living too carefully?  Are you
finally becoming dissatisfied enough to take on measured
risk and take action?

It’s unfortunate that we easily fall into the trap of living
in our comfort zone of the present.  We continually put off
taking action on our goals until the future, or reminisce about
the past to find excuses for not taking action now.

Why?  Because it’s easy for you to hide in your habits rather
than take a step forward to opportunity and risk stumbling or
perceived embarrassment.

It’s been said, “The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward.”

How true!

And always also know the bigger the risk, the greater chance of
loss too.  You must learn to manage risk to gain reward without
risking everything to do it.

Doing anything new creates a sense of fear of the unknown outcome.

Have you noticed that most of the time, once we know the unknown,
the fear is no longer there to stop us?  Learn the technique of
“Best case – worst case.”  If you can live with the worst-case
scenario, then, by all means, take action to go for the best-case
scenario, and move forward.

Get out of your everyday routine to begin getting away from your
limiting habits.  Do the thing you enjoy doing, but do them in a
different location, away from familiar surroundings.

For example, instead of reading a book at home, go to a public park
and sit in the shade of a tree to read and study.

Go to new events.

Meet new people.

Hear new ideas.

See new things.

Ask questions that your mind wants answered.

All of these are action verbs:  go; meet; hear; see; ask.

This is how you live life.

Life is made up of living, which is the act of continually growing.

And growing is accomplished by doing.

And doing is made of taking action.

Ultimate Success Program.

You must expect to do something worthwhile with your life

You must expect to do something worthwhile with your life

Have you ever heard parents, grandparents, or maybe your teachers
say to you, “All that I expect is that you do something worthwhile
with your life”?

Now it’s good that they say that to you, and in that one sentence,
that phrase that they say, you find that it is expected that you
should do something worthwhile with your life, and you must expect
to do something worthwhile with your life.

Now for you to do something worthwhile with your life, you must
first expect it to happen.  This is what first sets everything in
motion.  Your expectations overcome inertia.

It’s been written, “To whom much is given, much is expected.”

The more you become successful, the more success is expected of
you to continue to grow and bear fruit like a mature fruit tree
or the shade of the mighty, old oak tree.  Having great expectations
gets us wanting to do well in every activity we pursue.

Great expectations set our goals and standards high.  Great
expectations create in us an awareness of things that are right
and good, a sense of personal freedoms along with their
responsibilities, and a sensitivity to life in all its wonder
and excitement.

The miracle of great expectations.

You create your own miracle.

You must believe in them, anticipate them, invite them, and
find them by first planting great expectations in your feelings
and thoughts.

Ultimate Success Program.

You must begin where you are

You must begin where you are

Now let me ask you a question.

Which is more important:  financial capital, having money,
or specialized knowledge, which is knowing what people want
and need?

Well, I will tell you that your specialized knowledge in
knowing what people want and need is the most important of
those two.

Now, how do you know what people want or need?

Well, the simple way is you ask them.  You get in a conversation
with people, and you simply ask them what they want and need and
how they feel about things.  You strike up a conversation, and
you become interested in their answers.

Now, how else can you spot opportunity?

Well, there are a few other ways.  Observe the frustrations
and discoveries of yourself and others, and make improvements
on what already exists.  You don’t have to be a great inventor.
You can just be a great improver.  So you can make improvements
on what already exists.  What knowledge and experience do you
already possess, or could possess with some study and application,
that others would also want and need?

Another way to spot opportunity?

What products and services do you already offer that others
would want even more frequently, or to have an upgraded version
of that product or service?

Those are three simple ways of spotting opportunities – is to
always be asking yourself those questions, and be asking people
what is that they want and need.

Now most people will tell you going through this awareness of
looking for opportunities is a waste of time.  You may even tell
yourself it’s a waste of time, but some people, successful people,
will take their ideas and put them into action, and with persistence
they are unstoppable.

The big lesson, the big takeaway, is your wealth is near you right
now, and you’re overlooking it.  If you wish to be great, you must
begin where you are and with what you are, and take action toward
your goals one step at a time and never give up.

Ultimate Success Program.

The difference between time and timing

The difference between time and timing

Participant: I have a question actually.  Where you talked about
the difference between time and timing, and each is important
in achieving a goal?

How do you determine if the timing is off?  Is it just that, perhaps,
you keep attempting to do something and it’s not working, or are
there are other cues that you use to determine that?

Mark:    The difference between time and timing.

Time is an ingredient; timing is when you’re checking to see if
it’s the right time.  Let’s think of when you bake an apple pie.
How many minutes of time do you use?

Participant: I haven’t baked that many apple pies. (Laughing)
I follow the recipe.  So if the recipe says, “Bake it for 30 minutes,”
that’s what I do.

Mark:    Okay.  So the recipe tells us, because of somebody else’s
experience, that you make the pie, you put it together like this,
you set the temperature, you put it in the oven, and you bake it
for, let’s say, 30 minutes.

That’s the time that it takes to bake the apple pie.  Now if you
check that pie at 20 minutes, then your timing would be
questionable, right?

Participant: Right.

Mark:    Because it’s not given enough time.  So if you’re doing
something that you haven’t done before and you haven’t been provided
a recipe, do you know the time or timing?  And the answer would
be, “No, you don’t.”

That’s where a lot of people get frustrated because we humans
want to have it when?  We like to have it now, but there are many,
many things in life that we just cannot have now, and because we
haven’t done it before, or maybe we don’t know anybody that has
done it before to give us the recipe, it’s hard for us to anticipate
how much time it’s going to take.

Then our expectation is set, and when we check in to see if what
we’re trying to accomplish is finished, in other words, check our
timing, we find out that, “Okay, it’s not an apple pie yet.”

Therefore, we need to set it aside; in other words, let it bake a
little bit more, continue working and letting the plan work, this
thing of temperature and ingredients and time to bake that apple pie.
Does this make sense?

Participant: Yes.  What I’ve struggling with is applying that to
an internet business, for example.

Mark: I have a project that I’m working on, and I started it about
a year ago.  It took a lot of effort to get it up to where I thought
that I could release it to the world, okay?

I ran into a situation to where I could not do it because it involves
some other people who were not ready for me to do it.  I haven’t
given up on that project.  You see, this is an issue of time and timing.

Participant: Right.

Mark:    The timing was not right for them, and I’m not quite sure how
much time it’s going to take.  So what I’ve done is I’ve just set
that aside, and I’m letting that one mature by way of time.  I’m
aging it, if you will.

Participant: Okay.

Mark:    It’s in front of me every day.  I see it every day.  And I
know, from the experience I’ve got and the feedback that I’ve got,
that it’s not the right time and the timing is not right.

So I have to be patient.  I go do some other things.

I have some other projects going on, and when I get some of those
bigger projects finished, it allows me more spendable time where
I can work on this project and bring it back into my focus.  And
then I can approach those people again, and see if it’s going to be
the right time, meaning “Is the timing good, or do we need to give
it more time?” as an ingredient. Okay?

Participant: Yeah.  Okay.  That makes more sense.

Mark:    One of the things that I see God do, that impresses me so
much, is how He has created all these systems within the larger
system, and how all the timings are right, and that, when we watch
His handiwork, we can learn the timings.  People now know through
thousands and thousands or however many years, that if you plant
an apple seed, that if you can nurture and grow it, that it will
come up as a tree and in a few years start bearing fruit.

Now if you never planted an apple tree before, you would not know
how long it would take to bear fruit.  So now we know the seed is
planted, and we expect in a few years, whatever that is, that it’s
going to bear fruit.  And we learn to be patient.

When we create things ourselves, that, to me, is the hardest part,
not knowing when it’s going to bear fruit, knowing that the ingredient
that I have the least control on many times is how long is going to take.

Participant: Okay.  So it doesn’t necessarily mean to you to quit;
just perhaps to pull back and put it on the back burner, so to
speak, for a bit.

Mark:    Yeah.  Yeah.

Participant: Okay.

Mark:    You never, never give up.  Never give up.  It’s not even pull
back, because I think if we have a tendency of pulling back, it kind
of dies away.

We have to have that determination and persistence just like that
little apple seed.  That little apple seed has a purpose, to grow
into a tree and bear fruit, right?  Your ideas, your seed of ideas,
have a purpose.  And it’s to grow into what you envision and to
also bear fruit.

So that little apple seed has that persistence.

It doesn’t pull back.

It just keeps pushing out, pushing out, pushing out very persistently.

It doesn’t give up, but it does it all in good time.

You’ve probably heard that phrase before, right?

Participant: Yes.  (Laughing)  Yes.

Mark:    That’s what really applies in here.  All in good time.

Participant: I’m writing that down.

Mark:    And that’s a big phrase of hope, isn’t it?  Doesn’t it make
you feel good after we’ve talked about all that and kind of
summarized it in that phrase, “all in good time”?

This is an excerpt from just one of the lessons in the
Ultimate Success Program.

When you’re ready, I invite you to join the thousands
who have applied these life lessons that I’ve put together
into a step-by-step success program.
