The One Tool You Must Have to Manifest Business Abundance

Setting clear intentions for your business is the opportunity to take full responsibility for creating your business the way you really want it to be. When you set an intention, you first get very clear about your desire, and then you ask for guidance by being willing to partner with the divine without a sense of entitlement or demand. Then the energy of your desire is sped up, because you’ve actively embraced your ability to solve any problem that comes your way.

Think of it this way:

Intention = Desire + Asking For Guidance = Sped Up Energy = Manifestation

It is an activation of a supreme confidence that you will put the right energy into your actions and into the resolution of any problem.

Getting very clear about what your intention is keeps you on a focused path and your energy running clean. It helps you to stay away from the “I should”, “I ought to, “I have to” or other fears and doubts that may creep in when making business decisions.

You want intentions to be at the forefront of every move you make in your business.

Inner Intentions:

Setting an inner intention for yourself allows you to get clear about how you want to feel, what energy you want to activate. Your desired feeling state is what lies beneath any physical desire.

For example, you may tell yourself that you want more clients. But, why do you want more clients? What do you believe more clients will give you? What are you REALLY wanting?

By clearly setting an inner intention right from the start, you will begin to take actions that connect to that inner intention. If your inner intention is happiness, your body will really feel it if you start to do something that doesn’t make you happy.

Trust me. Eventually, all of your actions will begin to automatically line up with your inner intention (and if that’s what you REALLY want anyway, isn’t that a HUGE YAY?) You will start to do whatever you have to do to avoid that which does not match your inner intention. And miracle of miracles, your outer circumstances will respond to your inner intentions as well.

Hint: It doesn’t matter if you don’t know HOW to create that inner intention. All that matters is that you get clear about it. Actually, anything worthwhile that I’ve manifested I never knew the how of it; I just believed that it would be so.

Outer Intentions:

Setting an inner intention puts your energy on solutions by removing the “unwanted” first from your mind. Your outer intention puts your focus on what you want to create. This moves the focus away from only “what is” to “what will be”.

If at this moment you have three clients but you want ten, and you continue to focus on “only having three clients”, can you guess where your client numbers are going to stay? That’s right-at three!

By setting a clear outer intention you keep your focus on forward rather than on stuck, and even more importantly, away from “not enough”. This is the biggest stumbling block (and I’ve done it myself) I see entrepreneurs make-they cling to how much they do not have. It’s used as a rationalization, reasoning and proof that “it can’t be done”. It doesn’t even matter what it is. I’ve heard it used every which way.

If you find that you do this, starting right now, begin to raise your energy level by keeping yourself connected to YOUR inner and outer intentions.

Your Call To Action:

1. Take a moment to get connected to your own, personal, Success Field. Really feel that force around you.
2. While really tapped into your energy, bring to mind something you desire to bring about for yourself and your business.
3. Now what’s the feeling behind your desire?
4. Turn that into an inner intention.
5. Go back to your business desire. What’s an action you could take that would support the creation of that desire?
6. Turn that into an outer intention.
7. State it out loud:

“My inner intention is ________________”

“My outer intention is ________________”

7 Sure Fire Ways to Double Your Business Profits Fast!

Business can be relatively simple and should be kept simple to make it easier to make the greatest amount of money.

Here are some of the ways that we have found have worked best in improving businesses.

1) Get crystal clear on your numbers by asking yourself and answering the following questions –

– how much are you making or losing gross/ net annually, monthly, weekly, daily?
– how many customers/ transactions do you service again annually, monthly, weekly daily?
– what are your operating expenses/ fixed costs?
– what is your break even point?
– what is your average price point?
– how many ways are there for you to lower your break even?
– how many ways are there for you to increase average price point?

2) Sell More –

According to the 80/20 principle, the rule is that 80% of your profits come from 20% of your customers. So, the logical follow on is that you should identify and court your best customers, helping them to buy more and decide whether or not to continue to deal with the ones that eat up all your time, and don’t make you any money.

Questions –

– who are your most lucrative customers?
– what is the best way to measure this?
– what differentiates them from your average customers?
– how can you sell more to them?
– what do they want?
– how can I increase the number of these type of customers?

3) Cut expenses –

What are you paying for that you don’t want, or need or that doesn’t serve you or your business? Be brutal, if you don’t need it, get rid of it. What do you delegate or ignore that you shouldn’t, that needs your attention, and is costing you money? Make a list of your expenses. This is powerful and will increase the efficiency of your business.

4) Pay attention to debtor due days

A really simple way to drastically improve cashflow is to reduce debtor due days. This means that instead of getting paid by your customer in 60 or 90 days you get paid in 14 or 30 days, or even better in advance. Become cash rich, instead of acting as a bank, and then a debt collector to your customers,

5) Increase creditor due days –

If you’re paying in 14 or 30 days or even in advance then negotiate with your suppliers citing the consistency and quality of your relationship, and your ability to pay. Explain that you will pay promptly on the new due date and that they will not have to chase you for payment, and many of your suppliers will be happy to agree to the new arrangement.

6) Use direct marketing rather than advertising –

Does your advertising work, most people don’t know. But all too frequently the answer for those who do measure is “no, not really.” You see its the measuring part that is really critical. Again, coming back to the 80/20 rule if you can figure out the 20% of the things that you do that work, and stop doing the 80% that don’t, you will see phenomenal results.

This is the foundation of direct marketing. We suggest you begin by collating the personal details of all your customers, name, address, email, date of birth etc. In reality, the more you know about your customer the better.

Very simply you can then contact your customer directly by phone, mail, email whatever you choose when you have a deal or an offer that you feel may interest them. You see common sense dictates that those who have already done business with you will be more inclined to do more business with you, if you have met or exceeded their expectation previously (and sometimes, even when you haven’t). People like what they know – comfort zones!

7) Keep sharpening the knife – if you have a good idea, test it. Stay at the front line of your businesses future by mixing with people who make things happen and attend as many e opportunities to network and business development seminars as you realistically can.

How Ego Can Make You Broke In Your Business & Spirit

Aside from the fact that ego stands for Edging Greatness Out, I’m going to bridge the gap of ego and brokenness for you.

But first a little back ground on the origin of ego…

…When we say “I” we are referring to our Ego. It is our perception of ourselves.

Egos are only different on the surface from person to person but deep down they are all the same.

Here is what I mean by that.

Ego is constantly struggling for survival. The concept of “I” can not survive along with the concept of “others.”

When we criticize another group or individual it makes us feel superior. That is our ego hard at work creating separation.

Even criticizing other people’s unconsciousness is not to be judged so that you feel superior. This is something I struggled with as I made my journey into awareness.

Like criticizing, complaining is a story that our mind makes up that supports our separation from others as well. Complaining or creating negative labels about others creates more separation and it is the ego supporting this “separate” mentality.

Obviously you are starting figure out, that with out this separation the ego can not survive.

Resentment is the next level of complaining. When you resent things about others no matter what it is, your ego loves it. It creates more separation from others and supports the ego even further.

We have a dysfunction of our collective consciousness when we judge while going through the process of becoming aware. That simply means that you can not tap into the collective conscious if you’re judging others who are a part of that collective consciousness.

The more “me” or “I” in my language the more dysfunction and the more I support my ego. Most have an unconditioned unconsciousness. Non reaction to their unconsciousness is critical.

So be patient with others.

Respond to situations don’t react.

So the $97,999.98 questions is this, how often can we focus on being more conscious & aware?

Well that is the real question now isn’t it?

Just realize the ego does not like change and it will pull many tricks to keep you from your awareness.

Awareness and ego can not co-exist. Struggle is the ego resisting change. Be IN the moment.

Are you resisting as you read this or maybe even offended?

That would be your ego.

People who are easily offended never run out of ways to be offended. They are addicted to being upset or angry. Through reacting to these concepts they re-enforce their ego’s survival.

Much in the way that people react to the idea of a home based business and that they are scams, pyramids or the such. This would be their egos in play. They get to be right, there for their ego keeps them from change.

The ego wants to make others wrong so we are right. As I’m sure you are starting to understand, you can respond to these kinds of situations by being objective about the situation rather than reacting.

Investigate your past grievances but realize the past has no power in keeping you from being in the moment unless you choose to let it. Other wise “I love you” is my favorite let it go phrase now.

It all comes full circle for me when I remember the saying, “let go and let god.” I choose to relate this to, “be one with the collective consciousness.”

I believe that to be a fact.

The other acronym for ego is Edging God Out…

So how does all of this have to do with your finances or lack there of in your business?

With all of that separation the ego creates, how can you possibly connect with the right people in order to grow your business abundantly?

Network Marketing is all about attraction. If you’re not attracting the people you want, look at why they possibly are not attracted.

I’ll let you marinate on that one.
