Getting To Motivate a Global Business

I got to speak to Anna Lozano and her international team Wave Makers International. One quote I touched on was that "It's not about you. It's about pulling out of others what they have their already" 
Hope you get some nuggets from this and keep bettering your best!

How the Purpose Driven Life Book Changed Me

Diving into a life changing book

This was the last book I thought I would see my oldest brother read; wait, I didn’t think I would ever see him read!
You can get this book on Amazon by clicking HERE 

The first time I heard of the book, The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren was actually walking in on my older brother reading it.  He was the “rebel” of the brothers, but starting dating this girl that really brought the best out of him (now his wife) and she encouraged him to check it out.  Let’s just say by the end of the book he was a changed man!
Another story about this famous book came from my business coach. Before taking me on as a client, he encouraged me to read the same book that my brother did 6 years earlier since it had such a powerful impact on his own life.  I was actually really excited to read it.  After it was all said and done, I was filled with so much energy!

Pastor Rick Warren. What an impact he is making on peoples lives

Just like anything you do, if you don’t constantly remind yourself about what you learned, you won’t live it out as much.  I recently met with a woman about a business opportunity.  After hearing her story, I told her that I thought that the timing was not right for her right now, but how she could benefit from reading this book.  She texted me about two hours after our meeting, and indicated that she already ordered the book and couldn’t wait to start!

Great question to ask yourself and find out 

If you are in a state like I was in the beginning of the year, not knowing your purpose, then get this book ASAP and read it.  I know you won’t have any regrets, and you’ll learn some powerful new things!  While you do this, you’ll be bettering YOUR best!

Nate Bautista Little Black Books

Nate and I in Utah 

Have you ever wanted access to something that you couldn’t have?

My friend Nate has been involved in the company I am currently with many years before I became a brand partner with them. He was trained by a leader that was a legend in the company years before I was involved.  I recently had the opportunity to learn from this legend through my friend Nate's journals of notes from his teachings.

The Journals

Nate and I become friends last year, and he offered to let me borrow his journal to see the stuff that this “legend” taught him.  After reading his journals, I learned a lot of new stuff that I can take away and apply.  However, the coolest part is that so much of the information is the same that I learn even today.  If you or I want to be successful, there is a four letter word we must learn and that is "WORK." The other word we must learn is "DUPLICATION."  There is no magic formula; just put in the time, keep bettering your best, and in time you will be a great one just like the top income leaders! 

Whatever goal you are looking to accomplish, stay the course because you never know when you will have your next mini victory or major victory!

Become A Rapid Reader

I thought having a college degree made me an above-average reader.  In the video, you will see that six months ago, I was a very below-average reader.

In February, my business Coach Simon Chan suggested a book by Peter Kump, so I can learn to read faster. I was so excited to get into the book. However, when I started the course and did the test to see my words per minute, it was nothing to brag about. The author suggests reading consistently on your own without the training book for a while to build your reading speed faster naturally. I chose to read on my own without the book for six months. I came up with six months because I knew I was going to be extrememly busy, and knew I coudn’t dedicate an hour a day until late August. If you get this book, I suggest not to wait as long as I did, and read on to see why! During these six months I read nine very awesome books in subjects that I wanted to learn and improve on and made me fall in love with reading more! 

Six months to the date, I came back to the Rapid Reading book and did the test again and it showed that my reading had improved dramatically! My words per minute and my comprehension went up! I just finished day two of the workbook and guess what......I improved even more!
If you are not good at something, don’t NOT do it.  I encourage you to figure out a way that you CAN do it. So many people quit before even trying. When you remember my story, consider not only how long I took before I got back to this Rapid Reading book, but also what I did during the six months that I waited to re start it.  I read and practiced on my own. I am very determined to be a rapid reader, so I can read many books to learn more, grow as a person, and bring more value to friends, family, clients and the market place! 

Find a reason why you would want to become a rapid reader or look at anything you have been putting off and go out and start right now! Heck, do what I did: make a video, post in on youtube to be accountable, and tweet me so I can give you a shout out for your decision to Better YOUR Best!

2013 Convention Recap

My GF Vanessa and I learning and hanging with Millionaire in the company Mr and Mrs Aaron Dinh

I recently went to my company's annual convention, and it was one of the most motivating yet humbling experiences to date. Going there with less people than I brought the year before and not getting to walk the stage nor rank advance almost made me cry. 


When we flew into Salt Lake City UTAH this is the sign that welcomed us! Love this company

I know that it is a bit drastic, but I always like to look at the positive in everything.  When you look at things in that way, watch the fruitfulness come. Even though I brought less people in my personal organization than last year, I brought quality, HUNGRY people.  It is said, "I would rather have one leader than 20 followers because that one leader can motivate hundreds." The people that came are potential big-time leaders; all with their own stories and all with their own reasons why they are deciding to build a part-time business.  I really admire their sacrifice and dedication to invest in themselves, demonstrated by choosing to spend money to attend the event even when it meant time away from work and family, to become better people all around!

My team mates are HUNGRY for success! John B and EVERYONE doing work to make their dreams a reality

Pro Bodyboarder and my friend Sebass Perez came to learn how to surf and travel for the rest of his life. Not just for a short period of time. Here learning from Jordan Kemper
Getting to travel with my amazing girlfriend is amazing! She is doing big things in this company and finding her niche

I am competitive by nature which is good, but can also be bad. One thing I learned is to use my competitive nature for the best, and that is to inspire me to be better and be happy for the people that are winning. I feel it is so easy to be jealous of other people winning, getting attention or getting to their goals quicker.  However, I have realized that people are all on their individual path.  If what you are doing is the right thing and you know you are doing the right thing, your time to shine WILL come--it is only a matter of time. Seeing so many people win prestigious awards filled my heart with joy knowing that one day I am going to help a partner in my business win some killer awards. Rank advancing was never really that important to me until I came to this year's convention. SO many people would ask me when I was going to the next level.  However, I never had a big desire to do so and was content helping people, getting orders and bodyboarding. BUT when my friend Jordan spoke, something inside me boiled up and fired me up to go out there and help as many people as possible better their health and their wealth. It is WRONG of me not to share what I know that has benefited me and my family so much. Now with my mindset changed, ranking will happen after I help enough people get to their health and/or wealth goals. That is what is driving me, along with helping my team increase their money and focus on their success. I loved my friend Jordan's speech the most because he challenged us to take a look at our hearts and evaluate what we are doing. That was the most impactful speech that I have heard in so long, and one that will drive me to the next level

One of the fastest growers in all of the Phillipines Billy!

Muliti Millionaire and Top five income earners in my company Jeremy Stansfield. Finally got to meet him!

My boy from SD and fellow bodyboarder Nate!

My challenge for you is to watch the video of Jordan that I recorded and take a look at your heart. Once you do that, share it with someone that is close to you. Whether you are in a business or not, you will learn a lot.

Finally, one of my biggest take aways of the 2013 international convention is the amount of new friendships I have made from all around the world. Go out and meet some new people that will help you get to your goals quicker, and remember to better your best daily! 

While I was on this trip I got word that I was featured in the new Riptide Magazine from Australia

My friend J Leman ALWAYS challenging me to be better and do MORE
