The Age of The Entrepreneur - how to become an entrepreneur

Uh, how can you awaken your entrepreneurial spirit - Donny Deutsch offers the following plan:

Part One: Figure out what your business should be by grabbing a notebook and answering the following:

What did you love to do as a kid?
What was your best day and what were you doing?
Who are you jealous of?
What would you do if you weren't being paid?
How would your script read if you were its author — no holds barred?
Part two: Incorporate Deutsch's beliefs to overcome obstacles:

Realize that successful people are not afraid to fail. Failures should be viewed as springboards to even greater success. Turn your failures into opportunities.
Even if you don't always feel it to your core, decide to be confident. But remember to have a playful attitude.
Be passionate about what you do. It creates excitement, energy and motivation.
Discard your naïve sense of entitlement. Instead of thinking you deserve something, develop humility and a genuine sense of appreciation for the opportunities you are given.

Optimism


No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed to an uncharted land or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.

Mario Andretti


Go Go Go beyond your comfort level!


Mario Andretti, legend Formula 1 racer once said:
'If you're under control, you're not going fast enough!'
aka: you have to push yourself beyond your comfort level (to win).
Soon you'll become comfortable with what you once thought of as out of control.

The Secret Story of Tuesday March 18th 2008


A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret

Ask, Believe, Receive - just three simple steps to create what you want. However, very often the second step, believe, can be the most difficult one. And yet it is the greatest step you will ever take. When you master believing, you have mastered your life.
To master believing, all you have to do is tip the balance of your thoughts, words, and actions, from 'not believing' to believing. The ONLY thing that can ever get in the way of manifesting what you want, is having more thoughts of 'not believing', speaking more words of 'not believing', and taking more actions of 'not believing', than you are of believing. Base the majority of your thoughts, words, and actions in believing, and the law of attraction must obey you.
Believing contains no doubt. Believing does not waiver. Believing is absolute faith. Believing remains steadfast despite what is happening in the outside world.
Here is a story of believing that will speak to you and inspire you......... to believe.

From SFB in the Philippines:- 'My Own Daily Reminder'
When you open my cell phone, the first word that you will see pop-up on my greeting screen is "BELIEVE". I have had that word tacked up onto my computer screen, my vanity mirror, my journal - almost anywhere that I can see it. However, I have never really taken what that word means to heart. This afternoon, I know what it is like to believe.
A few days ago, I got hold of the DVD of The Secret. I had already read the book some time ago, and I wanted to watch the film. I decided to take The Secret's message to heart.
Each morning, I had been waking up and dreading going to work - the company I work for has a very stressful environment, and being there takes a lot out of me. Despite this, I would tell myself and really feel that I was excited to go to work, that it was going to be a good day, that only good things were coming my way. Doing this helped me. I would get through my days tired, but still able to laugh and feel less stressed. I also developed a more compassionate view of the people in our office who made our lives hard. I started seeing them not as monsters, but as people who hurt inside like we do. I was happy with this result - it made me feel more serene and calm and less stressed. It also started making me more productive at work, as I no longer let the tense atmosphere affect me.
But I was in for a little surprise. The Universe wanted to show me just how this process works. :-)
Each Christmas season, Starbucks gives out daily planners to its loyal customers. The planners are usually covered in real leather and are quite striking and stylish. To get one, you have to fill up a small card with 24 stickers - each sticker represents one cup of coffee bought in Starbucks. In our country, a cup of Starbucks coffee costs an average of Philippine Peso 150.00 - about the cost of one lunch and transportation to and from work. In a country where wages aren't that high, this is quite a luxury, and although I get paid a bit more than the average worker, this is a bit much for someone who has a family like me. I have tried for three years to get the stickers required, but each year I stop about midway when I start computing the cost! This year, when they started the annual promo, I got a card and wondered if I could fill it up with the required stickers.
I had worked my way into getting 18 stickers onto the card - no mean feat considering that I started collecting the stickers the day the promo started, or almost two months ago! I had scrimped and saved to get at least two stickers a week - sometimes three if I had a little extra left over. I wanted to get that planner before Christmas - my gift to myself.
With only five days left till Christmas, I wasn't sure that I could fill up the card. I was beginning to think this was going to be one of those years when I'd just watch other people lug the Starbucks planner around and wish I had one.
This morning, as I was taking a shower and just enjoying the water splashing on my face, I told myself I was getting that Starbucks planner TODAY. I didn't really know how since I still had 6 stickers to fill up. When I got up from my desk to get my coffee after lunch, I told my staff I was going to get my Starbucks planner. All the while I was thinking: "Now, how is that possible? I can't afford to buy 6 cups of coffee today."
As I stood in line, I kept staring at the planner displayed on the counter. I could feel the leather cover between my fingers and I could imagine writing on its sepia colored pages. All of a sudden I heard the barista ask the girls ahead of me if they wanted to give me their stickers, since they already had their planners and didn't want their stickers anymore. The girls said YES. I almost jumped - I had three free stickers, plus the one for the coffee I was getting made four, which meant that I only needed two more to get the planner. At that point, I was already sooooo thankful and I expressed my thanks to the three young girls who graciously gave me their stickers. (They were my three magi -- only in female form, don't you think?)
But that wasn't the end of it. It so happened that as part of Starbucks Manila's 10th year anniversary, they were giving away double stickers between the hours of 12:30 noon and 2:30 p.m. till December 25. It was 1:00 p.m. so I was getting double stickers!!!! That meant I was getting SIX stickers in all - the number I needed to get my planner!!!!! I walked out of the shop with my planner in the brown Starbucks bag, still in shock, but convinced that I had tapped into the Secret.. even if it was just for a short moment.
I instantly knew why I kept the word BELIEVE tacked in all those places. The Secret had been trying to get to me all these years through that word - I just wasn't really listening.
I have my planner on my desk now. The leather cover feels just as it did when I was imagining how it would feel when I touched it. I have told my co-workers how I got it - I told them I simply believed I was going to get it and I did.
This planner will be with me all through next year. It will be my daily reminder to BELIEVE.
(And oh - I'm already seeing the 2009 planner on a bigger desk in a corner office with a view!)

Using the Universe

This Morning we use the Universe as a catalogue and as we turn the pages we pick what we'd like to have happen today!

Contrast and Focus


Church de luxe - Law of Attraction Class in Hollywood, California concluded:
"Learn to look at contrast without breaking into negative resistance against what is or what could be. So just look at it. Be aware of it. Focus only on the part you like."

The Intention Experiment

Church de Luxe's Book Tip of the Week:
The Intention Experiment !

Light is the Source



Esther Hicks said something like: You never walk into a room and look for a "dark switch". There is none. There is not a source for darkness. The light is the source.

Groundhog Day

Sister Rita Beckwithout says: "Watch Groundhog Day (again) and then go out and make today significantly different from yesterday - in terms of giving service to others - today I'll stand in line at the coffee shop and buy someone I don't know a cup - maybe someone who looks like he owns an apartment complex, no, someone who doesn't have the change."
So "pay it forward" and celebrate your abundance, the "Sterntaler" principle.

Coming from a place of LOVE

Today we use LOVE. Use the power within you called LOVE to wipe out all negativity. Any situation of negativity in your life is simply the lack of LOVE. You can rely on it to obliterate every negative thing, because nothing can stand up against it. You can use LOVE on yourself or anyone else, and the more you use it, the more there will be. Call it your "inner source", your "strength" or just: LOVE. Send a little more of it outwards today, like a friendlier greeting to your neighbor perhaps.
And don't forget to send it to yourself ;-) Its like having protein every morning, see what happens to your life if you do it.
