I looked at their faces and just started to cry.
I felt like I was failing as a husband, father and provider.
For 5 years, I’d been trying to build a business from home, and despite my best efforts, it just wasn’t working.
I was lost, confused and embarrassed.
With tears streaming down my face, I did the only thing I could think to do at the time…
I dropped to my knees and offered one of the most sincere prayers of my life.
Believe it or not, within 2 weeks of that prayer, something miraculous happened.
I got a clear impression that I needed to begin a serious study of a book that had been written nearly 100 years ago.
This was strange to me because I’d actually read the book 5 years before, but this time was different.
This time I felt I needed to not just read it, - I needed to study, understand and apply what was inside.
And so it began.
Each night, while my wife & kids were sleeping, I’d walk up and down the driveway outside my trailer house, beneath the Idaho stars, and proclaim my vision of freedom, per the instructions in the book.
After a few weeks of doing this, I went from a state of hoping, praying and wishing that I might be able to earn an income from home, to a state of certainty, a state of faith.
Suddenly, I KNEW that the money was there waiting for me and all I had to do was perform the service necessary to bring that money into my bank account.
This faith filled my entire business.
The way I talked, walked and interacted with people transformed because for the first time in my life, I really believed that I would be successful in my home based business.
One of my mentors, a man by the name of Jim Rohn said in an audio one time,
“You can’t say that faith doesn’t exist because you can’t see it.
That would be like saying radiation doesn’t exist. We know radiation exists because it has an effect, and it’s the same with faith.”
Looking back now, I realize, what I’d started to uncover was the power of developing an unstoppable mindset, which I later found out, was the first part of the success formula.
Mindset + _____________ X _____________ = _____________.
Now stay with me, because I’m gonna give you the whole thing in just a minute.
I went on to discover that there was actually a complete set of laws, that when followed, could lead anyone to an unstoppable belief in themselves, their abilities and their future.
This, I learned, was a crucial step in the freedom formula, and although I didn’t realize it at the time, I’d stumbled into the motherload of information on this topic.
More on that later.
The next piece of the puzzle came as I was frantically searching the internet, for new and better skills I could use to grow my business.
I remember staring at the computer screen one day, looking at some information, just like you're doing right now, and having my mind blown with ideas that I’d never even thought of before.
I’d been in network marketing for 5 years, and while making lists of people to talk to about my business had been a great place to start,
...it had never occurred to me that there were other things I could do to find customers and build my team.
I guess I’d always believed that the secret to success in this business was finding the right product or compensation plan.
Sort of like the old the saying…
“If you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door”
I’d thought that was true.
Then, one day, one of my 7 figure mentors, slapped me upside the head and said “Get with it”.
She went on to say, “The world will only beat a path to your door Paul, if it KNOWS that you’ve built a better mousetrap, and this is done through marketing.”
She told me there were millions of people scattered throughout the world, who were literally waking up every morning, hungry to buy the exact thing I was selling.
...And that If I could just learn to put what I had to sell, directly in front of those people, instead of trying to convince people who were not even interested, my success would become almost effortless.
At least compared to what I’d been doing.
This, I learned, was a principle called “Tapping Into Natural Demand” and it’s a marketing concept that changed my business forever.
One of the best examples of this was when I checked my Google voice account after getting started with some of this stuff...
Imagine my surprise when I heard…
