Chapter 10: Power OF The Mastermind

This could very well be the first lesson I posted in Think and Grow Rich since starting with Mentoring For Free. I came back around to it and when I read my Lesson from the last time I said wow I actually wrote that. I have come a long way. I always think I am just kidding myself. I am not going to get anywhere because I am not doing everything I should be doing every day. But the fact is most people can't even do what I do every day. So I am getting somewhere. 

I am blessed to have what I have right now and I believe in the Power of the Mind and the Power of the Masterminds I work with here daily. We often go through tough days but last night as I handed my son 50 dollars to go to a Halloween Festival with his friends I thought to myself, wow years ago I would have had to say sorry but we can't afford for you to go. I see where our lives were and what they have become and although there are many changes that still need to be made we are living our lives in a much better place in time than we ever were.  I am thankful and grateful for what we have.

Here is a great story. One of the first calls I was on when Michael Dlouhy was speaking about how people in your life will tell you that you are wasting your time. You know the Nay Sayers that like to work 9 to 5's and make no money. Well, I had realized on that call what was stopping me from getting out there the way that I should. Rejection. This was because I was rejected by my own sister when I wasn't even selling her anything.  

At one time in our lives when we found out our youngest son had Autism, we had to change everything. We tried for a year to keep our careers going. We were there 11 years and we really wanted to stay but it became impossible with our son. So when I left I had to find a way to make a living and my family helped me. They held parties at their homes and their jobs to help me make a couple hundred a week while my husband went to school for an entirely different career.

Years later I found a couple businesses that I could work from the internet and no more parties which I had stopped doing by this time because my husband was the breadwinner now. But I wanted to contribute to the household somehow. I was always a career oriented person and held a job every day of my life since I was 16.  

People hated that any job I wanted I got. I even got to work for Donald Trump in the 80's. That was a dream of mine and I made it happen. I was never without work and like I said I was hired anywhere I applied. I always had a positive attitude and I was a go-getter. The last career I had was where I met my husband and had my children. Where my whole life changed. 

Back to my online venture. I was doing well I had sponsored 5 people in my first month in one business and got 4 customers in my other one. I was so excited. I sent one of the products to my nephew for his birthday and I brought another product with me to give to my sister for her birthday since she was a nurse and always had cracked skin. I was only trying to help and I didn't even tell her where I got it. But when it was time to talk about what I gave my nephew which was a big hit at the party it turned out to be the worst mistake I ever made and was the thing that brought me down although I never knew it until the day I was talking to Michael Dlouhy. Days later my sister was so upset with me and told me her husband was so mad that I brought my network marketing businesses to their sons birthday party. I actually did not mean to come and sell anyone I was just giving gifts to people to solve a problem they had and the other gift was a lifetime keepsake and I thought my family would be happy for me that I was doing all this on my own without their help. I never asked anyone to join anything. It wasn't the last time I was told about that day. It was like I had done the most awful thing I had ever done to anyone. That's what they made me feel like. My sister would say I want to join that business I do like the product but my husband OMG. Her husband would always tell her not to help me with anything because I was like a charity case. That made me sad because I was never and was not a charity case.

I always said well I will show them. I will be a millionaire from my online businesses that they will be sorry they ever said that to me. But the fact is I never showed anyone anything. I was taken online by someone that made me see that I was wasting my time with the businesses that I was working on and told me to hang with him and he will help me. Well, years of paying his bills made me realize that was not right either. I lost so much money but still never gave up. I went out on my own and started making little money here and there and just joining people that said they would tell me exactly how to be successful. Well, still nothing. 

So now I find Bob Shoaf and even though I had joined Mentoring For Free 5 years ago I never stuck with it and it was because that guy I joined told me that was wasting my time also. I thought he was right and I don't know why I stopped. I really wanted to keep going. But they say everything happens for a reason and there is a time for everything. This is my time here in Mentoring For Free. I met Bob and when he said he could get me anything I wanted in life I thought the same yeah sure. It took so long for us to finally connect and I was constantly missing his calls but he was very persistent in reaching me. I finally got to talk to him. One day I was at a small little burger shack in Philadelphia after a hard job we had did that day and Bob had scheduled a call with me. My husband rolled his eyes when the phone rang and I got up and left the table and went in the tiny little bathroom to take his call. There were people outside waiting to use the bathroom and it was crazy but I stood there and finished my call with Bob. From that day on I never missed a call with Bob. 

My husband had become a nuisance with my daily calls and would always try to make sure I didn't get on those calls. But I got on as many as I could. I made sure I did. Since then I have turned my husband around and now he tells me when my calls are coming up. He says that my theories are real and I said well they are not my theories. They have always been here we just needed to learn how to be open to them. He started to see how a negative attitude attracts negative to you. We were sinking a bit in our business because he was letting others run it for him and letting their negative attitudes rule him. He started to see how the negative attitudes that the others had were hurting them and in turn hurting his business. He started to participate in self-talk and things are changing. I am so happy to have him on board with the power of the mind. I will work on keeping it that way. 

I decided one day to put my business out there on my Facebook wall to see if there was a need. I never would do that before because I thought I might be bothering people with something they didn't want. Well if you could see the things people post on my news feed then you would say a little shout out about my business wouldn't hurt anyone. In fact, what I see on my news feed these days hurts and I am sure it hurts others. So I said why not. I got some engagement from it and it put a smile on my face. 

I called my mom last night and told her I was a Millionaire. She said oh really how is that? I said because my sister called me today and bought $130.00 of products from me. She really wanted what I had. It wasn't about helping me. It was about helping her. Which in turn helped me. It was like that day was erased from existence and I am free to help others that need the same thing. I am not scared anymore.

I know that getting on these calls every day and reading and writing these lessons are helping me. They are helping us. We have so much work we can't handle it. The money will be pouring in and I am attracting others that need help. I am getting leads almost daily in my business. That's the part that I need to learn. How to keep those people. I know it is about listening.

I went to lunch with a friend yesterday and I listened to her talk the whole time about herself. I only said one thing about my son which she will be helping me with some of his adult transitioning on Tuesday but it was great to actually just listen to someone and not say anything. We hugged and said see you on Tuesday. I was like wow what just happened?  

Life always brings me back to the people that should be part of my life. So when they come back I keep them. I used to work at my older sons school as a lunch aide and I was the PTA President. We lived in a bad neighborhood and I wanted to be as close to him as I could. It was an aide in this ladies classroom and helped her children with their lunches. We always talked and hugged but never anything else. After we moved we would come back to a pizza place we loved in our old town and we would see her there several times and never connected. 13 years after first meeting her she ran up to me at the Amish Market up the road from us nowhere near where we used to live. We connected there on Facebook and stayed in touch. But when I had the state come to my house I told her what happened to us and found that she was in the business of Autism now and she could help me a lot. Another instance is I met a lady at one of my jobs I worked before my 11-year career. We always ran into each other after that. The day of my wedding she saw my husband at the WAWA and wanted to come to our wedding. She would always find me no matter where we moved. It wasn't so easy back then there was no internet to look people up and I was not listed in the phone book. But we just kept running into each other. One day I saw here at a WAWA and she had a little boy in her car. I had no idea she had a son and I found out they were testing him for Autism. A couple months later I was testing my son. We have been together ever since. There are many other instances where I meet the people again that should be a part of my life and I know it is part of the grand design. 

Well, I have written the biggest lesson by far. I hope it was an enjoyable one. I enjoyed writing it and I am so happy I am still here. It is really working. Thanks to all of you that make this all possible. I love you all.
