Want to Rise to Greatness?

Want to supercharge your success in anything you do? In fact, it’s everything you do, because every area of your life affects every other area. It’s all about the people you spend any amount of time with. Here are a few guidelines that work.

Charlie “Tremendous” Jones said, “You will be the same person that you are today in five years, except for the people you meet and the books you read.”

You don’t mix Lagavulin with coke. Mixing a great single malt whiskey with cheap sugar water is just stupid. It dilutes and damages the exceptional product. Associating with people who are on a trajectory to failure is not wise.

When he gives you a glimpse of what is behind his mark, believe it, even when the mask goes back on. Don’t buy the lie; people are good at acting a part, but remember, the graceful ballet dancer on the stage in Swan Lake isn’t necessarily the same person when she’s on ecstasy at a club with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth.

Talk is cheap; money buys the whiskey. Big hat, no cattle? Don’t believe what they say until you watch what the consistently do. “Consistency” is the operant word here. Observe their patterns of behaviour over time, and look at whom they associate with before you believe anything they say. (Others will be noting the people you associate with, too.)

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. You can’t stick your hand into the jam jar with having some of it rub off on you. What you hear, read, see, and where you go, and especially who is around you, is of paramount importance to those who seek to rise above mediocrity.

Drink upstream from the herd. If you don’t want your life tainted and poisoned by the bad choices of others, you have to avoid them. It’s better to walk alone than to be in the company of losers. And remember, their values will affect you a hundred times more than their religion.

Keep skunks at a distance. Get too close, and the stink will make others think that you, too, are a skunk. Spend enough time in a Starbucks and see how everything you wear starts to smell of coffee. Don’t even try it with smokers – you will instantly alienate good people with your foul smell.

Words that sink into your ears are whispered… not yelled. Parasites and predators will slowly influence, condition, and weaken you. They’re good at using their slimy tricks to persuade others. They will subtly plant bad seeds in your mind. Keep away from them at all costs.

Losers seldom reciprocate good deeds. There are only two kinds of people in this world of ours: givers and takers. The takers seldom reciprocate and always need something you have, be it friends, money, help, or connections. Identify this cancer fast and blow up that bridge, too.

And when you find good people who share your values, people who are smarter, richer, better connected, more experience, and wiser than you are, do all you can to build good relations with them. They will repeat that track records. They find it hard to find genuine, hard-working, ambitious, honest people, too. Reciprocate, go out of your way to attract them. They are the key to your greatness.

Finally, avoid people who are not clean and well groomed, those who procrastinate or regularly show up late for appointments, smokers, gamblers, the politically correct, and the obese. And watch the eyes of men: if they can’t keep their eyes off scantily-dressed waitresses in restaurants, they’re weak, and weak men are dangerous.

Looking back on my life of almost 65 years, I know this to be true. Pictured above, from left to right, Marnus Roothman, Jay Abraham, and me.

Surprised? You Shouldn’t Be. What Will You Do?

 

maxresdefault (1)

It’s not as though, in the words of the inimitable P.G. Wodehouse, Fate was quietly slipping lead into the boxing-glove, or that Fate sneaked up behind him with the bit of lead piping; it’s been happening for decades.

And so, when I met a fellow entrepreneur at an associate’s business’s ribbon cutting, and he revealed to me that he had left the Motherland 30 years ago, compared with my twenty, he rose considerably in my estimation. In fact, the first White South Africans started emigrating en masse in 1976. Those were the most insightful – most of them, unsurprisingly, Jewish. By now, over a million have left. For many, it’s too late.

In business, some things should not be a sudden revelation; unless of course, you’re new to entrepreneurship, in which case you’re in for some unsettling discoveries, unless you align yourself with some astute guides. As Confucius taught, “By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” In this context, easy is appealing to intelligent people.

Sadly there are still a few who think they can learn from government-sponsored entrepreneur courses or a large proportion of college professors who have never run a successful business. That’s like learning to cook from a burger flipper in a bar or learning to fly an aircraft by reading a manual; just silly.

Others start businesses and don’t know when to quit, like the proverbial frog in water that is slowly being heated, or like the South Africans who think a change in their government will miraculously solve their problems, or the even slower types who are now carefully considering which country they should choose in order to emigrate, like the drowning man who thinks deeply about which rescue buoy to grab. Time is running out – fast. Don’t get stuck with the sunk cost fallacy.

Why did those smart people start emigrating from South Africa in 1976? They had access to information that most of us didn’t have. They had money, they had traveled overseas, they had high IQ’s, and they received advice from smart people. And the longer people waited, the less their money was worth, the less they could take out of the country, the longer it took to emigrate, they were older, and the harder it was to sell their houses. Time is money. Lost opportunity is expensive. Early adopters benefit all the way to the bank and in many other ways, too.

For most people, the future we face is very different from what we thought we would encounter just a few years ago. The writing was on the wall if we considered the rise in technology, automation, and the Internet, our aging population, the growth of socialism in western countries, and the collapse of morality. It’s time to trim our sails accordingly, and not to wait until were aground on the rocks. This is a wakeup call. Reveille.

When we created an opportunity for others to participate in our business, were bore these things in mind, in addition to the fact that you seldom make real money or have enough time to enjoy your life by selling your time, and the reality is that most people are not good at selling or recruiting. So we built in everything people need, including on-going coaching and guidance and Leverage and Collaboration.

We reach an unlimited, fast-growing market with urgent needs, and we have a unique way of supplying those needs. And we are absolutely committed to our cause.

Uncertain, Scared to Start Your Own Business? Here’s the Safe Solution

E5C509BB-AE45-4BFF-B6D7E2DC5937DF87

Especially if you’re a new entrepreneur and have had a few failures in the past, or if you’re getting on in years, yet you don’t want a job, but you are squeamish about getting into your own business, we have created a real, proven solution for you to consider.

After over 30 years, each in various successful businesses, my business partner and I asked ourselves, “What is the average person like? Generally speaking, what are his strengths and weaknesses? What does he want? How can he most likely succeed?” 

I have trained small business owners around the world for over 30 years, and before getting into my own business 31 years ago, I used On the Job Training as well as Work Study (Organizations and Methods) to improve productivity in organizations. My business partner has a stellar business record. Both of us have retired before. We know how to make businesses work.

To make a looong story short, we realized that most people are not “salespeople,” they have trouble recruiting people and they are not financial administrators. Also, they want the least risk and the highest potential return.

This explains why most people, in spite of their hard work and commitment, lots of money and countless hours invested, still fail in the Network Marketing industry and why, according to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. A whopping 80% crash and burn.

So when we designed our new business, serving the United States and Canada initially, we took all this into consideration. My specialty is collaboration and leverage, and we carefully built this into our Distributorship model. We make it easy for our Distributors to succeed. How? We take care of the things they may not be good at and don’t want to do. The Distributorships can be tailored to their needs, strengths, priorities, goals, and desires. Just like a bespoke suit.

We took the time and invested our money. Then we tested the model with two great Distributors, and it works perfectly. It will produce what you want, according to what you put into it. It’s a reliable, proven Money Machine. Here’s why we created this business.

And now you have the opportunity to join our team. Let us take you by the hand and guide you to your lifestyle and financial goals, whatever they may be. Check us out here. This is the business opportunity. Call me, let’s chat and see if there is a fit.

Go to the Ant, Thou Sluggard!

10714299_1579779482242485_4589318474398045413_o

The average worker ant works nineteen hours per day. And when they sleep, they sleep standing up! These ants take about two-hundred-and-fifty naps per day – but each power nap lasts only a minute. Work is defined a force times distance. So how hard do these ants work? When you work this out, the ant’s daily work is the equivalent of a human being carrying a thirty-pound rock a distance of 36.6 miles.

6 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.” Proverbs 6: 6-8

Today I had the pleasure of talking with a human Ant. He works for a moving company, moving furniture and household goods for people. He earns $20 per hour. He was complaining that he was waiting for his boss to get back to keep an eye on the stuff on the sidewalk beside the truck while he single-handedly loaded it and moved it into the customer’s apartment. Although he admitted that he was being paid to stand and wait for his boss and that he would earn more money because of the delay, he was eager to get to work. He is a Producer.

In our society of obese, entitled adult sluggards who are quite capable of improving themselves and working hard, yet they expect their spouses, parents, the government, and charities to provide for them and their greedy habits: their video games, junk food, tattoos, drugs, and toys, this young man was a breath of fresh air. He’s no parasite, no collectivist leech sucking the blood of the Producers; he wants to work, he has goals and he’s disciplined.

Our daughter came to Canada at the age of seventeen twenty years ago. She had no college education, but she worked hard, worked two jobs, worked her way up, and built a stellar career in the hospitality industry, without any help from us or anyone else. She was recently offered the job of Assistant Hotel Manager, and within a few weeks, she was promoted to General Manager.  A couple of weeks later, she was promoted to Director of Sales for the entire hotel group. She is a goal-directed Producer, a responsible woman of integrity who never makes excuses or complains – just like her mom.

You don’t need a college degree, financial assistance from mommy and daddy,  and government handouts if you’re a real Producer. Ants (and squirrels and bees) are role models for us.

How Brainwashed Are YOU?

19437618_10212973588603978_1619562861558058934_n

The cultural Marxist media and governments in the West have brainwashed their dumbed-down citizens to a remarkable extent. Their programmed, automatic responses reveal just how little they think, objectively evaluate, compare, ask probing questions, and review simple statements in context before resorting to brainless assumptions and accusations.

How do YOU respond to facts and statements that you hear or read? Do you immediately categorize, pigeon-hole, and condemn before giving your mind some time to soberly and open-mindedly ponder the implications, before jumping to a confusion? Are you prepared to reconsider or re-evaluate your philosophy, beliefs, and ideas when confronted with new information? In other words, how brainwashed are you? Are you a puppet of the Cultural Marxists, like Obama and Trudeau?

The most powerful programming in our Western society includes four main labels:

“anti-black racism”

“Anti-semitism”

“Islamaphobia”

and Feminist, pro-LGBTQIA, anti-White male stereotyping.

Here are some examples of statements of simple, proven facts. Check your responses:

  1. I mentioned that I had read that six Jewish-owned companies control 96% of the world’s media. I was called anti-semitic. (I did a lot of business with Jewish people in South Africa.)
  2. I mentioned that I provide for my wife through our business and protect her and do the heavy lifting, while my wife cooks, irons, does the business books, and other things women do. I open the car door for her and pull her chair out for her. I carry the groceries. She behaves like the refined lady that she is. I was called a misogynist. (Anyone who has met my wife would laugh at that accusation and I trained gay people in multiple hair salons for hair product franchises owned by Jewish people.)
  3. I mentioned proved statistics regarding the devastating effect in Europe from the mass importation of Muslim refugees. I was called Islamaphobic. (My business partner in South Africa was Muslim and my business partner here in Canada is also Indian.)
  4. As an ex-South African, a Canadian Citizen who has been here for 20 years and left there at the age of 46, I know something about Africa and what is going on there. But when I mentioned the fact that 95% of the cream of the crop has fled the white genocide in South Africa, that is a million White, educated, productive, skilled people. While Canada encourages and welcomes black and Muslim “refugees,” regardless of their illnesses and infections, fake papers, criminal backgrounds, and lack of education and skills, their response to the White South African Endres family’s refugee application last year was “white-supremacist hate literature that should be ignored” and the government further argued that concerns for their children were based on “patently unreliable racist propaganda.” So far this year, not one White South African refugee applicant has been accepted. The information about their refugee application was from the National Post. I was immediately accused of being an anti-black racist. (See my video and written testimonials from black friends and clients on my website.)

It’s been said, “Take note of whom you may not criticise – they are the bullies in the playground. They have a definite agenda or they are being manipulated by a stronger force. Evaluate your level of programming and consider exposure to information that possibly can set you free.

As a fun, revealing exercise to see just how vehemently people will attack you to justify their own failings, weaknesses, and addictions, post things against smoking, fat people, and marijuana on social media. Shocking. The knee-jerk reaction is usually a sign that the “offended” cretin fears confronting what he senses is the truth.

Your Two-Headed Coin

20171013_105522 (2)

An old man was lost in the desert. He was running out of water, slowly dying of thirst, and had almost lost hope when he came upon an ancient, dry water pump, almost covered in sand and cobwebs. On top of the water pump was a note. It read, “If you fill the ballast with water and pump the handle hard and fast, you will be able to fill all your water bottles, and you will have enough water to get to the next oasis and live. Anything less, and the pump will not produce any water and you will die of thirst before reaching the next oasis.”

The old man thought long and hard about this. It would take all the water he had left to gamble on this water pump saving his life! What should he do?

Many of us are faced with a two-headed coin, and we need to make a life-changing decision.

One side of the coin – one head – is: My money is running out, I earn less than I need to live on, my savings and assets are being steadily depleted, and I am headed to bankruptcy.

The other side of the coin – the other head – is: I don’t want to spend any of my savings or realize any of my assets on a new money-making endeavour, because, in spite of the fact that both are dwindling fast and steadily, it’s all I have.

This is the dilemma faced by many on their way to desperation, dependency, and depression. “What shall I do? I have a two-headed coin!” I’m damned if I do, and damned if I don’t! THAT’S NOT TRUE.

Many success stories start with someone using all their resources to create a money machine that changes their lives, as in the analogy of the water pump.

Here’s the rest of the story: The man poured all his water into the pump, pumped that handle like a crazy man, and nothing happened. He pumped harder. He determined to pump until he no longer had any strength left. And eventually, water started to dribble out of the pump – fresh, crystal clear, ice cold water. As he continued to pump, the water eventually started gushing out – enough to fill all the water bottles he had and much more.

HE MADE SURE TO PUT THE NOTE BACK ON TOP OF THE WATER PUMP FOR THE NEXT TRAVELLER BEFORE HE CONTINUED, REFRESHED AND HAPPY, ON HIS JOURNEY.

This may be the water pump you have been looking for.

The Two Secret Systems to Making Real Money – While You Sleep

img113One of my mentors, Jay Abraham, said, “As soon as you open your mind to doing things differently, the doors of opportunity practically fly off their hinges.”

The key to wealth building in business is a combination of Leverage and Collaboration. This removes barriers and allows one to soar to unprecedented heights. This simply means using or leveraging the resources, connections, relationships, reach, equipment, skills, and experience of others in a collaborative win/win manner. It also means removing time-consuming activities and geographical boundaries.

Jay also said, “The most important determinant of greatness is going to be our ability to collaborate with others who have pieces of the puzzle we don’t.” One kid has the bread, another the jelly, and yet another, the peanut butter. Together, they have a great peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

On your own, whether you’re selling houses, painting offices, flogging life insurance or providing plumbing services, you only have 24 hours a day and limited resources. You can’t service the cars of too many people – you don’t have the time and your customers may be too far away to help. Essentially, you sell your time like a paid slave – an employee – a self-employed salesperson. No matter how skilled you are at playing the piano, you are limited in the amount of money you can make. People won’t come from LA to buy widgets from your store in Moosejaw.

But by using a system that is based on leverage and collaboration with others, you can break down the barriers of time and space, and therefore your earning potential.

I have been teaching business owners how to do this for 30 years in many countries around the world. I have always practiced what I preach by using the same techniques myself – very successfully. Many times I got into lucrative businesses with no cost or risk. In one business, I personally recruited only 65 people, but my total team grew to 11,843 people. I have made well over $300,000 in that business, and I still make money from it, even though I stopped building it in 2015. So I walk my talk.

Large businesses like WalMart use leverage and collaboration every day, they remove geographical boundaries and they reach a large, growing demographic, so why should you be able to do that, too? You can, you know.

Here’s a simple example: In our present business, which we built based on our proven system of Leverage and Collaboration, a Distributor can earn about $1,500 per month if only one product is sold per day by that Distributor, but by implementing and using the systems we teach him, he can increase that to ten sales a day by leveraging and collaborating with other organizations and his salespeople, which will make him around $15,000 per month, and there is no limit to the amount of money he can make. This is not Network Marketing and you don’t have to recruit anyone.

Add to this the fact that our Distributors and Salespeople can market our products anywhere in the US and Canada to a demographic of well over 70 million people and growing by 10,000 per day (Seniors), plus all the sales are made from our company website, meaning that the company carries all the inventory and handles customer care and warranties, insurance, sales and shipping, and you have a winning formula.

SENIORS: Think Your Pension / Retirement is Safe?

20160915_185943

Canada lags behind the U.S., U.K., and E.U. when it comes to protecting pensioners from financially distressed employers. Robert Bernier, who worked 39 years for Sears, wrote to CARP, “I worked my butt off for this company [Sears] only to realize that they are looking out for themselves and to hell with employees.”

Many companies’ retired employees are going to be experiencing this in the near future as the world changes and more and more products and services are sold online. As Wanda Morris, CARP’s VP of Advocacy said, “When companies declare bankruptcy, pensioners are given short shrift. The assets that are available go to secured creditors and executives, who often walk away with their wallets unscathed.”

Add to that the ongoing rise in prices of drugs, medical services, eyeglasses, dentistry, accommodation, and food, and we realize that we need to speedily prepare some additional, stable sources of income, and I’m not talking about Network Marketing or some other scheme. Relying on the government, pensions, and relatives – our adult children often lose interest when we become too much work or too costly, or when their spouse or live-in lover doesn’t like the idea of supporting us, especially when darling stepchildren are involved – is farcical.

As Seniors, we are part of the biggest, fastest -growing demographic in the U.S. and Canada, and that Seniors have increasingly urgent needs. We understand other Seniors and their problems and needs.

A smart man once said, “Dig the well before you thirst.” That applies to all of us, doesn’t it? Waiting around, hoping that things to improve is a mug’s game, to say the least, and often, we wait just too long; by the time we’re ready, it’s too late. Many of us can attest to that.

Another clever fellow said, “Business is to find a need and fill it.” You don’t want to be selling ice to Eskimos.

Add to that one more truism by Zig Ziglar, “You can get anything you want out of life if you’re prepared to help enough other people to get what they want,” and you have a formula for success.

Stop wasting your retirement nest egg, your future security, on cruises, unnecessary purchases, and bribing your kids and grandchildren to spend time with you, and consider investing in your future security and stability. Let’s talk about how you can participate in our business of helping Seniors – call me direct: 604.785.2536 – I’m on Pacific Time – or contact me and I will call you. No pressure, no obligation, I promise.

Crows, Books, and Balloons

43994452 - crow, corvus corone, perched on a branch, close up

They say that, when an organ grinder wants to discipline his performing monkey, he kills a chicken in front of the monkey. If he hits the monkey, it will become too skittish and intimidated to perform well in the future. Which brings me to crows.

In Vancouver, we have a problem with crows at times; people complain that they rip up their lawns. So smart me, I think up a solution: Blow up balloons and put them all over your lawn. Then, when Mr. Crow shows up for work, take your trusty pellet gun and shoot the balloon closest to him. Don’t shoot the crow! Crows, being very smart fellows, will soon learn that your lawn is scarier and less predictable than that of your pot smoking, barely lucid neighbor, and they will pop over to his place to rip things up. I thought I was pretty smart thinking that up. (Like sending the burglars and home invaders over to your socialist neighbour who is afraid of guns.)

Then I read in the Vancouver Sun that many thousands of lawns throughout the Lower Mainland are being ruined as crows, raccoons and skunks tear up turf to get to tasty chafer grubs, and that chafers have been with us for the past 14 years – but that there are still many people like me who do not know what is going on. So they offered a little background and advice:

“European chafers first arrived in New Westminster in 2001, hidden in nursery stock shipped from Eastern Canada, where they have been a problem since the 1940s. The crows, skunks, and raccoons love to dine on the white grubs which are feeding on the roots of grass. But the crows, skunks, and raccoons are actually doing a good job of pest control. They are nature’s agents, digging and eating the juicy grubs before they have a chance to turn into a mature beetle that flies off to reproduce and perpetuate the cycle of destruction. Let the crows and raccoons do their job.”

 WELL! That made me realize how ill-informed I have been because all I heard was homeowners complaining about crows and raccoons. Isn’t it the same when it comes to most things? A little bald man rushing around selling overpriced balloons and pellet guns as a “solution” to the “crow problem” may not be quite as good as it seems to be.

And most people are just as ill-informed as I was regarding crows and lawns when it comes to politics. That’s why they vote for Trudeau and Obama and the NDP and the Greens and allow Cultural Marxism to run amock in their schools, brainwashing their kids and messing their values up: they are ill-informed, they don’t read, and they watch the government-controlled socialist media and movies and TV shows that are programmed to program. They urge people to “be kind” to “refugees” and “accepting” to the LGBT mob. They have no idea what is going on.

I will never forget the time I asked a fellow what the last book was that he had read and he replied indignantly, “I don’t read books – I’m too manly to read books.” Sad. Very sad.

Time to smarten up, learn about things that affect you and your family and business, associate with people who actually know what is going on in the world, and be quick to admit it when you realize you were misled, brainwashed, hoodwinked, or simply uninformed.

Women Were Made for Motherhood

lds-family

“If I have a female lawyer in front of me and it doesn’t matter what she has achieved, and next to her is a mother of five, six, seven children, and they are in great health and well educated by her, then I want to say, From the eternal point of view of the eternal value of our people, the woman who is able to have children and  raised them and thereby gave our people the ability to live in the future – has achieved more. She assists us to avoid the death of our people.”

Add to this quote the fact that the lawyer, if she did deign to breed, would probably have relegated the raising of her offspring to a mercenary nursemaid of questionable abilities, likely of a different race, and with a low IQ, or, worse still, an androgynous “Stay-at-Home-Dad” type who couldn’t make it in the workplace and who waddled about, foisting his fumbling parenting skills on vulnerable children in between his video game sessions.

After all, this lawyer would argue, they needed” the money – how else could she afford her beauty parlour sessions, leased, luxury car, tattoos, et al? Her biggest mistake was either marrying a man who was incapable of making enough money to provide for his family or falling for the lie of Cultural Marxist Feminism.

Julie Beck said, “There is eternal influence and power in motherhood.”

The family is the most important building block of a strong society, and it is, therefore, the prime target of the Liberals. Lee Iacocca wrote, “The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works is the family.” And W.R. Wallace wrote, “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” One can’t be a part-time mother; it is the most important job in the world, and it only works properly when there is a father involved in raising the children, too. And children need their parents and their grandparents.

Sheri L. Drew wrote, “Motherhood is more than bearing children; it is the essence of who we are as women.” 

David McKay wrote, “Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother’s image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child’s mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world.”

Robin Elliott

P.S. You may be interested to learn, as was I, that the quote about the lawyer and the mother was by the same man who banned vivisection and the testing of drugs on animals and animal cruelty, insisted on the end of pornography, campaigned against smoking, prohibited the sale of alcohol to minors, banned the inhuman ritual slaughter of animals as kosher and halal, and much more, was Adolf Hitler.
