How Not to Destroy a Dream Home Business by ANTS (Automatic Negative Thinking Statements)

A definite strategy to help people focus on their goals is to visualize having achieved success already. It works for sports stars, motivational speakers, Olympic athletes, entertainers, movie producers and more. It should also work for people looking to start a profitable home business.

Visualize now that you have achieved your goals for an awesome network marketing home business. You are using a healthy whole food product for your family as the basis for your commissions. You are following a simple 3 steps plan to share with others and continue building more income by sharing information. Every week you receive a growing residual check and your bank account is starting to look a lot greener, too. Your credit card debt is shrinking before your eyes. You are starting to plan for a few extra things for your family..like taking a nice vacation or maybe buying a new car. You are saving business related receipts for major tax savings at the end of the year.

Best of all, you sleep better and worry less about a shifting economy because you’re building your own personal economy step by simple step.

Actually visualize this dream as much on a physical scale as you can… Close your eyes and actually see the big house with less mortgage and a nice new car in front, and maybe a flower garden… a beautiful sunset…

Now visualize this. This brand new home business dream is being attacked by little A.N.T.S… automatic negative thinking statements…

Each little statement gnaws a little hole and creates a little dust. At the end, there is only a large pile of dust where once stood a magnificent dream of great potential and financial stability.

I speak with many home business opportunity seekers and these are some of the actual A.N.T.S. I have had to stomp on. It is always so sad when these sad little excuses end up controlling an extraordinary program and dream. So many don’t even read the free report about the Simplest Home Business in the World… at least dip your toes in the cool waters of network marketing principles. Some miss basic lessons in defining network marketing, comparing plans and how to set up a straight-line home business (Home Business 101)

The bottom line for a successful home business is best summarized by a viral Einstein-like formula.

PROFITS =Leveraged Message + Democratic Plan x Duplication
P = LM + DP x D

1. LEVERAGED MESSAGE… use professional information tools to work on your behalf 24/7 beyond physical limitations of how much time you have and where you are

2. DEMOCRATIC PLAN… network marketing is based on the founding principle that average people with above average dreams can start a low-cost, part-time home business and can earn potential high profits based on the principle of duplication I CAN DO This… YOU CAN DO THIS

3. DUPLICATION… the key to high profits in network marketing is the duplication of a simple marketing system. The key to success in this simple marketing system is a short, comprehensive curriculum guide to how this industry works. It is simple-to-follow, low-cost, generic, standardizes content to handle questions and objections, and time efficient and practical for everyone to use.

Business Planning: Preparation Is Key

Preparation of efficient strategies will be necessary for success whether planning for a “lemonade stand”, or wanting to run the lemonade stand from your “executive suite”. Now that the symbolic foundation has been laid for business, one can begin conducting day-to-day operations. I am quite certain than many successful people would agree that a certain level of preparation was associated with their achievements. Had they not been prepared to sacrifice that of which would contradict their vision, they would have not achieved all their great accomplishments. In this article I plan on creating a visual to emphasize the importance of preparation in the world of business. Visualize this scenario.

A wealthy, successful, and influential Independent Business Owner is “away” on business. This entrepreneur has a lot that they are responsible for while conducting “market research” in the area. While checking their itinerary for the day, this entrepreneur’s phone rings. RING! RING! RING! “Hello” the entrepreneur answers. “Mr. (Ms.)_______, I hate to bother you, but I JUST HAVE to inform you of this Lemonade stand I ran across. It is the best lemonade stand in the land.” The business owner responds sarcastically, “If you are pulling my leg, I’m taking you off the payroll.” The assistant then replies, “I’m confident this is the best lemonade stand in all the land” Now depending on if you are the lemonade stand or in the executive suite, a few things can happen here.

If you laid the proper foundation for your business structure, and have realistic goals, your lemonade stand should be in a position to at least negotiate on a real world level to prepare a better future for itself. One who values this business opportunity will have all day-to-day operations accounted for, and documented clearly in their business so they can present a mutual investment plan despite being in their executive suite. The planning process is very valuable to management. The information collected can provide additional preparation which will assist with making solid predictions that should positively impact the business in the future.

If you are a business owner who is properly prepared to invest in or manage a lemonade stand, this should turn out well.

Preparation will ensure an individual has constructed a concrete business plan prior to this moment. Maybe your father owned a lemonade stand when you were a child, or you once worked at a lemonade stand years ago in high school. Nevertheless, You have a genuine love for seeing a product go to the next level. With all these strategies and field research you are prepared to become a pioneer in the industry. Now if you just want to be the type of business owner that has poor work ethic, this will not work. Say this business owner just wants a lemonade stand because they had a conversation with another business owner the other day, this could be a huge waste of money.

If we pull back the layers and see no research has been conducted, this business will have some serious issues. If this business entity is on “shakey” grounds, and is relying on a plan that could not assist persons to the nearest exit during a fire drill, bad things will happen. Ultimately, If a business is poorly built, and is relying on a plan that can influence a fiction novel, some important changes must occurs. One thing is for certain; being knowledgeable of your structure and having a solid plan is pivotal for success. By understanding preparation one also holds the key to creating value for your products or services. As a business owner remember time equals money; therefore, it must always be accounted for.

The Relationship Between Subliminal Messages and Visualization

Science tells us that people have a unique way of dealing with issues: fight or flight. This means you either deal with them or you just run away. Sometimes running can be good, especially if you definitely need to be away from all the uncertainties and worries. However, they do have a way of hounding you back. Thus, the most effective means of getting rid of them or at least co-existing with them is to simply fight.

Fighting, however, is no easy feat. After all, it means directly facing whatever it is that’s causing the negative emotions. These include pain and hurt. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to make fighting a little bit easier. This is called visualization.

What Is Visualization?

Have you tried daydreaming before? Perhaps in the middle of the day you pictured yourself going on a road trip with friends or you’re managing your own business. Visualization basically works that way. It’s like daydreaming. This is because you are going to create images into your head.

The only difference is with visualization you’re actually trying to deal with something, such as pressing issues in your life. To get a better idea, consider this:

Let’s pretend you’re trying to deal with your insecurity. Perhaps you don’t feel very confident of how you look. There are two ways on how to do visualization at this time. First, you picture yourself standing in front of the mirror, telling yourself all the qualities that make you very special.

The second option is to go back to the time that causes your insecurity. It could be that when you are a child, a group of youngsters may be telling you how bad you are compared to them. In your visualization, you can picture yourself fighting off those bullies, or you can appear to them an adult. Then you inform them that you are strong enough to not be bothered by their own claims.

How It Works with Subliminal Messages

Almost always visualization doesn’t work so well without subliminal messages. This is because the power of the images becomes stronger when they are described with words that you can definitely hear. Subliminal messages, at this point, may be called positive statements.

What do they do? They have the ability to change the manner of your thinking. When you use them properly, you can modify your negative thought pattern to something more positive. Using the example above, instead of insecurity, you will feel more confident over yourself while being fed with subliminal messages.

Subliminal messages go directly into your subconscious. This is necessary since the conscious mind, which is the one you usually use, is discriminating. It filters out the kind of information it receives.

Working Together

Going back to the example, you may use the following subliminal messages with your visualization:

I have enough talent within myself.

I am a unique person.

I have skills other people don’t have.

I am confident of my own talents.

I gave a lot of value on what I have.

As these types of messages get into your subconscious and are repeated numerous times, your mind will start to believe they are the absolute truth. Thus, the modification of behavior happens.
