Don’t Try To Be Something You Are Not! (Be Yourself).

You can learn all the best strategies from all the best people in the world, but if you lack the talent to execute those strategies at a high level then you will just be setting yourself up for failure. If you don’t have the ability to perform new duties once you learn them or are exposed to them, then reality will come knocking on your door really quick.confused
 
Just because someone else has had success in something, doesn’t mean you can do the same. Be very aware of what you are really good at Vs what you wish you were good at because the real world will punish you if you suck!
 
I have Episode # 003 of my Podcast coming out soon. Anyone who struggles with putting out content daily for their business needs to listen to this episode once it is uploaded. A lot of people are out there spending tons of money on programs trying to be something they are not.
 
If copying someone’s pattern or system was so easy then the whole world would be full of massively successful people more so than it is now but that’s not happening because people are not learning how to be effective in a way that actually works for them. Most people read a book or go to a seminar to learn new things but once it comes to applying the new knowledge they fail and why?capture
 
Because they learned how someone else made it work for them Vs how someone just like “You” could pull it off. Does anyone relate to what I am saying right now? If you can’t copy a person’s habits then you can’t get the same results as them and that is where most people fail. If you try to develop habits that are great for someone other than you, then you are working too hard on things that you just don’t connect with. If you are an introvert and you go to a seminar and they tell you to go knock on people’s doors and ask for business……would the introvert think that was a good strategy?
 
No!, they wouldn’t so even if they learned how to door knock from the best people on earth it won’t matter because the lessons just won’t connect with a person who is wired a certain way and then all they can do from there is to try and force things into their life and hope they can adapt and hang on which usually never happens.
You can attempt to force things into your life but over time you will be unfulfilled and eventually tune out of doing the things you need to be just because you don’t relate to the methods you were exposed to and that is why most people fail in business after they get pumped full of hope at a weekend seminar somewhere, they have all this hope, but don’t relate to the methods so well and that effects their day to day performance.
 
53c8c0d0cbb57005b6a9ae111525b347Imagine if someone worked with you to find out how “YOU” operated in life first, and then showed  “YOU” you things (In your own way) so that you have a much better chance at seeing results vs frustration.
Have you figured out your niche in life? Have you found the most effective way to perform daily because you figured out your personal routine that actually works Vs you trying to copy someone else who is doing better than you right now.
 
There is a program that does teach people like that, and there is a person willing to work with people personally to make all that happen. If you are interested in knowing more about this type of personalized training, then comment on this blog to gain access to more content that will explain the program in more detail.
Don’t waste time learning to become someone else, be an original who stands out Vs a carbon copy of someone else’s work that doesn’t fit your personality or lifestyle traits which causes you to feel uneasy and that is when most people “QUIT” building their business or whatever it is they are trying to get ahead in life. 3D_michaelopolski
Don’t try really hard to be someone you are not, instead work hard to find out what the best version of you actually looks like.

Fact Checking Clinton’s latest Joke! (She Needs Better Writers For Sure).

Watch this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfAfYA6MNtA…..watch it real quick and tell me if its funny! If you laugh, you are stupid! It’s supposed to be a jab at Donald Trump but the problem is, people will agree with it and that shows a lack of intelligence and here’s why.nh4bm
 
The video isn’t even funny, its actually stupid because little do people know that Trump never filed for bankruptcy actually (Which is what people think) so Hillary is wrong and this joke is dumb. Trump asked for bankruptcy “Protection” and he got it because he had business partners who defaulted on their promises for funding portions of the Atlantic City Casino’s so he had to take action quick.
 
When that happened Trump filed for Protection so people could keep their jobs for a while longer and so that the casino’s could also still operate vs being shut down sooner so in essence, he saved people’s jobs but no one ever talks about that (of course). Eventually Trump sold his shares a year later to Carl Ikahn and hasn’t been apart of that business for years because it was a failing business model. At that time Democrats were raising taxes in the city, and we just went into the Gulf War which directly effected the tourism business for Atlantic City because of rising jet fuel costs which in return made traveling more expensive.
 
I read the whole story behind the Atlantic City Casino fall out. I know the truth and its really sad to see people buy into whatever they get told by the media and its not just sad, but this is a way of life for most people on social media these days. They just never fact check with real sources. GET OFF THE WEB AND GO READ BOOKS PEOPLE!
 
People will see this video and laugh at this anyway because they themselves don’t know the difference between bankruptcy vs protection so the jokes on them for laughing at something they don’t fully understand.
 
There is chapter 11, and chapter 13 filings you can do, along with many other forms to reorganize or restructure your debt with lenders so which one did Trump use and why? Most people have no clue about the truth but they will still pretend that they know and just laugh at him which makes no sense. “An uninformed society doesn’t deserve to vote”. You might want to understand something first before you decide to go along with someone’s joke, it makes you look stupid for agreeing to this because you never bothered to fact check the entire Atlantic City fall out. I can tell this much, it wasn’t Trump’s fault and the paper trail proves it. #GetEducatedclinton-liar
 
P.S
If you read books vs watching TV and other media, you can actually find the truth about things and make better choices in life especially when it comes to voting for our next president. You can hate on Trump all you want, but he never had the FBI come after him or ask for immunity to get out of a situation so just remember that when you talk about integrity and honesty this November. Everyone involved with the illegal email server has immunity, isn’t that odd?….Prosecutors do not grant anyone immunity unless they feel it will lead to a CONVICTION and because none of the Clinton aides are talking, the cover up will continue and the american people are just sweeping this corruption under the rug when in fact she should be in court getting a jail sentence, and yet people are voting for her vs a guy who speaks his mind and has no filter. I would much rather handle that (which is at least honest) vs a corrupt lady who seems to get away with anything because of her political relationships. It’s Time for change people! We don’t need politicians, we need people who are obsessed with winning and putting our country first! #Trump2016

Brand New Business Owners Must Read This Blog. (Reality Check Coming).

I work with several millionaires in real estate, not one of them sits on a beach all day with a laptop, not one of them. They all work hard to keep their million dollar a year lifestyle going. All I see right now on the web is a ton of things telling people that you can buy back your time and then coast through life doing nothing because you have systems that control your business.
This is stupid! no matter how big you get in business, you never take your foot off the gas and sure as hell don’t sit on beaches all day doing nothing. Once you start making more money than you ever have in your life, you have to take care of it and make sure it doesn’t go away.55941038
Way too many brand new business owners have this idea in mind that they will work hard for only a few years and then sit back and collect money like its falling from the sky.
You can have all the best systems in the world working for you but you still have to pay close attention to your business, your people, and your money. What if the system you use for automating your business gets replaced with something new? What if you don’t pay any attention to trends or changes in technology? You will only rely on what is working currently for you and because you think only so far, you will settle on your system and kick back and start trying to live like a person who has not a care in the world.
Here is a reality, most millionaires have to work, they are rich because they found a way to build up that income overtime. Even if you own a ton of rentals and that is your passive income, you still can’t sit on your ass and do nothing. You still have to maintain the property and make sure things are going smoothly even if you have a management company doing that for you.dontbelieve
You never check out of your business 100% folks, the more you make, the more responsibility you have. I see fake business people everyday. These people will talk about wanting to making millions and buying exotic cars but yet they never tell you about their plan or how they got one step closer to their goals today Hmmmm wonder why?…..its because they are not working on them like they should, that’s why! go ahead and ask them!
There is a lot of talkers on the web, but not a lot of workers. I have friends in network marketing, they could literally sit on their ass all day and collect whatever their income is set at right now in their business, but these people don’t take it easy. Behind the scenes they are busy and they are trying to make things happen so they don’t take steps backwards. Nothing worse than making really good money one year, and then the next it starts to go away all because you believe that once you reach a certain point in your business, you just do nothing and expect it to keep growing.
People need to wake up! stop being romanced by things that promise you great fortune with very little work, real life doesn’t work that way. making money is easy, keeping it and reinvesting it is the hard part for people and that is why marketers tell you that their system of doing things is easy and will make your life better.18zu608u2t435png
I don’t care who you are, if you tell people that you can sit on a beach all day and yet you yourself are not living that life, then you need to shut the hell up an start telling people that owning a business is a 24/7 commitment, even when you make a lot of money. It’s time to get facts people! I have never met anyone who can honestly say that all they do all day is sit on beaches and live the good life.
Most multi millionaires I know still get up and work everyday and why?…….because that myth of beach sitting and doing nothing is just that, its a myth because most business people know that the second you start taking your focus off of your business, that’s the day you decided to settle in life and that is not a trait of a true entrepreneur.
If you have bought into the idea that you can sit all day and do nothing and still have a business, then you need a reality check and I have no problem offering it to you. On January 1st, I am hosting an Accountability Class for the Winter Season. In this class you will be tested and also educated on things and after 10 weeks, we will find out what you are truly made of. Are you a go-getter person who chases after their dreams? or are you one of those people who only wants to work hard for a little while and then do nothing the rest of your life like what some people are teaching new business people these days?
If you think you have what it takes to actually back up what you plan to do in your business someday, then register for this class because you won’t be able to get away with being lazy and you won’t be allowed to use any excuses. I live in the real world and if you want to know how that world operates on a day to day basis…..join this class so you can become better prepared Vs being lied to by seminar guru’s who promise you riches beyond imagination. The sitting on beaches myth is not real, you still have to work folks!

Fall Accountability Class Update “People Will Be Failing Week #1 (9.22.2016).

The Fall Accountability Class started on September 18th 2016. That was the day 32 people started out on a path to create some new momentum in their life and business and to also learn some new skills and marketing ideas that they could benefit from. Each person who registers for this class has to go through an interview and I ask them things like “Why are you taking this class”?
Each student is required to submit their answers before the class begins.Not one student who registered told me that they wanted to sign up and then do nothing, everyone said they were ready to go and excited for the things they will be exposed to over the 10 week course.
Week by week some people will be getting better, and some will just stay the same and allow bad habits to once again win the day.
Everyday that you are in the Accountability Class……I’m watching! I’m looking to see who is really trying, who is blowing things off, who is asking questions, who is going the extra mile and more.
 
This is the very first week of the class and I actually have people who will fail week #1 and there is nothing they can do about it because their day to day activities have been ignored.
 
This is not how you should start out in a class that is built on the trust factor that you will be held accountable to your tasks.pts
 
Every week you all are earning points. Every two weeks your total points will be compared to the person who you are matched up against in the bracket. If you have a bad week one week, that is all it could take to eliminate you from winning the whole thing.
 
some of the class members are starting to find out that this isn’t a game, this is real life, and real work. At the rate things are going 50% of this class could be eliminated before Halloween weekend.
 
There is 9 people in this class who are not only done with their tasks already, but they are working on extra things that are on their (out of comfort zone list). Those 9 people are not matched up against each other so for the people who are matched up against them, I feel sorry for you because starting out next week, that person will have a huge lead on you overall for the 2 week scoring we do in this tournament.
 
Every two weeks you are either moving on in the bracket challenge or you are not. You can still pass the class by finishing the work each week, but overall you may not win the tournament so for those of you in the class right now ask yourself this……
 
“Are you giving it your best effort”?
What happens if you win the Bracket Challenge?
#1. You win your registration fee back!….all of it.
#2. You win a Trophy. Each class has a specially designed trophy that represent the season in which the class is in. There will be four trophies all together so maybe someday someone can win all four classes and take home the Grand Slam starting with this class right now.bracket_chart_red_copy
Stay tuned for the first round of challenges that will be a part of this classes “WILD CARD CHALLENGE” There will be 2 WILD CARD CHALLENGES and those are extra credit assignments you can do to increase your lead, or to come back from behind and make up a lot of lost points.

Here is an example of the WILD CARD CHALLENGE from a previous class.

Welcome to the Meet The Mentor Podcast. This is Episode #001 of the Podcast Series.

Running Time (40:31)

In this episode I am going to talk about 2 things that a lot of people are struggling with and those things are “Personal Branding” and “Getting Attention

BRANDING – How you would like people to see you?
ATTENTION – How do you get people to even come look at you?

Student Loans Are Not How You Achieve Success, They Will Only Help You Create Long Term Debt. (Why Bother?)

Student debt has to be the single biggest scam I have seen in quite a while. Who in their right mind would pay an obscene amount of money for a degree that promises you nothing out in the real world?
 
Parents, you need to understand that we live in a totally different world now. If you are telling your kids to get into debt with student loans then you have your money and your planning all messed up. Don’t pawn off your bad habits onto your kids. If you are too poor to go to college, then go into the work force until you can start paying for classes.
 
Going into debt without a guarantee is stupid! Education is nice and all, but jobs today are starting to die because we are really seeing a huge shift in the way people earn income now in this country and around the world. A 15 year old kid can make a living now on Youtube so the game has changed but too bad most people haven’t. 
 
If you are stuck in prehistoric times and you still think student loans are smart, then life as you know it has already passed you by and you are so far behind the times you need a reality check especially when it comes to money. Why are on earth are you chasing after a job that pays you so little but costs you so much to get? That makes zero sense!student-loan-debt-chart-crisis
 
Just watch, starting in the next few months companies will start replacing people nationwide. This movement will start with the fast food industry and work its way into others. It is too expensive to operate a business in the U.S so something has to give. You either cut costs (employees) or you increase production. If you can increase production and not have to pay people then you win! Look for places such as Wendy’s to start adding in self service kiosks at their stores which will eliminate the use of some human workers. Wendy’s tried this in China and it worked like a charm so now they are bringing that mindset over here to the U.S
 
Sorry if this hurts people’s feelings but I have a ton of people in my Facebook circle who have no clue about money and it shows. I have friends who have student debt and they are working at a job they don’t even want. They needed a paycheck to stay afloat in life so they settled for a job that there degree can’t provide for them.
 
This is happening all over and why? because people absolutely refuse to learn about MONEY, finances, investing. Notice how I didn’t mention (Saving Money) because that it a complete waste of time and if you knew how money actually worked you would be agreeing with me no problem.graduate_debt
 
Things are about to shift folks, and most people are not ready. The jobs market over the next few years will turn into a Tech market meaning that we are creating all kinds of tech jobs and not entry level jobs.
 
How many of you are confident about your future? As a business owner I see changes all the time in industries but not anything like this. Gone are the days of easy, entry level jobs. They will be lost because technology has found a way to replace the human worker.
 
Best advice I can give to anyone with student debt who is not getting ahead financially…….learn how to sell! create a business, make income in your off time from work because your student debt is a direct result of you taking bad advice from people. Employers of tomorrow are not going to be looking for degrees, they will be looking for skills and one of those skills will be the ability to market or sell products and services.opinions_student-loans_0
 
I believe everyone in the middle class over the next 10 years will have to have a side hustle for income because they simply do not want to learn how to invest their money, they still think a savings account is a good idea and that alone should tell you to never take money advice from those people.
Who is teaching you about money and how it actually works in 2016? If your answer is (No One) then don’t expect things to ever change for you. All you will ever do is work to pay off debt. Is that what you had in mind with your brilliant plan to go and get an education? Did you even try to explore other ideas?……Probably not, and that is why you are in debt with student loans today!

It’s a New Month, but it is a New You?

When people want change in their life, they usually set up a starting time or date when they plan to officially begin their journey. This happens more often at the beginning of a month, or the start of a brand new year (Resolutions).

Today is September 1st, The very first day of a brand new month and for many, things will still be the same. When you operate on the idea that you have to start trying for your goals in life at a certain time, you end up putting it off and eventually quitting, this is why most New Years Resolutions never happen, because people focus more on the starting date rather than the work involved or the process.

Do You “Leap” Towards Your Goals?

Do you operate each day with intent? do you have expectations of yourself?, because if you don’t you could be one of those people who likes to start things but never finishes them and this is a personality trait that is not good to have especially if you are trying to carve out a new path in your life.

If you don’t discipline yourself then your competition will. Keep in mind that everyday someone is excited to do what you are putting off today! Are you one of those people who are too afraid to make cold calls to prospects? If so, then you are allowing other people to steal opportunity away from you and all you had to do to allow that to happen was, let someone out perform you!Close-the-Gap

What does that say? It says that they want results more than you do so how do you fix this? If you have always been one of those people who just can’t seem to make things come together and because of that you quit whatever it was you were trying to do and then you move onto something else in the hopes of making that work, if that sounds a lot like your life, then understand that you are STUCK!

I call this part of life “The Gap” because this is where most people are at and they refuse to address this problem. The Gap represents a spot where you can’t seem to ever get past, you may see some results for yourself but they won’t last and because of that you have accepted the idea that this is just how things are going to be in your life. The truth is you need to be tested more outside of your comfort zone because when people do not grow or get past the same issues over and over again, its because they have an Accountability problem and that all starts with confidence and your skill set.

“The Gap” Seperates You From Your Potential Earnings

 

I have never met anyone who was good at something  who didn’t want to display their talents. A good singer has no problem belting out a few chords, a good guitar player has no problem playing you a song, a good comedian has no problem telling a joke, so why is it that a salesperson or a new business owner is the only person where people always seem to get stuck? It’s because they are not really good at what they want to do yet so they don’t do it as much and then their results suffer. A good joke teller has bad nights on a stage, they get heckled and they just keep moving forward and that is where some of you get lost.

When you get challenged in life or in your business, if you are not prepared for those things it can derail you and throw you off track just enough to sway your confidence in another direction and when that happens, your daily performance suffers and you stay inside “The Gap” of life.

Learn ways to get out of “The Gap” by joining the Private MEET THE MENTOR Facebook group today!
