Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours

Get Serious.....Cuz It's Your Life!
By: Dave Cole
I hope you all have subscribed to Frank Garon's
newsletter in the past.
If you missed his editorial on March 15 - Shame On You!
One of my own reps e-mailed me the morning after
reading what Frank wrote...Here's what she had to say:
"This business is so important to me and Frank Garon's
newsletter really hit home this morning. Lord, when I
think of the things I personally have survived, not to
mention what Cliff and I have been through! If we put
10% of that drive and tenacity into this business, we'll
be Seriously Rich."
Another one of our readers sent me this in response
to my question, "Why do you think people fail at a business?"
Here's what Irv had to say:
"Dave, its because:
1- they listen to 'others' instead of those who can help them.
2- they don't value long term thinking, they suffer from
'instant gratification' syndrome (I want success now!)
3- they just don't work as hard for themselves as they do
for their 'boss' and finally
4- they don't wanna' change!!"
Keep up the great work,
Irv hit the nail right on the head. Short, to the point,
exactly what Frank was saying in his newsletter.
Folks it's time for you to get serious with your
Money is being made on the Internet. You won't get
rich in 3 months time, but.....if you have a little
bit of vision and enough drive to see you through,
in a few short years from now you can being life
with a capital L.
I sure didn't make enough money online even my
first year to buy my brand new 2002 Dodge Ram
truck. But I am doing it now becuz:
1. I listened to folks who KNEW What They Were Doing
2. I had a vision and a long term plan for my future
3. I worked harder for myself than for anyone else
4. I Wanted To change who I was into what I wanted to be
Five years from now I plan on being retired with
well over a million dollars in the bank. I'm going
to spend my time coaching baseball, traveling,
continuing to have fun with my online businesses,
re-building antique tractors, and just basically
doing whatever the heck I want to do.
Where are you going to be 5 years from now?
That's right, just where are you going to be?
Still reading about it?
Still sitting on the sidelines waiting for that
one "right time"
Still making excuses
Still putting it off until Jr gets out of school
or you get that income tax check back or....or....or
Still saying you're too old
Still saying you're too young
Still thinking you don't have enough time.
It's Time For You To...... GET SERIOUS
Just whenever ARE you going to have enough time.
When you're retired? HAH! If you keep on working
and retire on a pension you won't have enough money.
The Fed Ex guy just dropped off a package. He
was telling me how he was in an accident, hurt
all the time, qualified for disability....but
wouldn't quit his job that was killing
him physically .....cuz: he needed the money.
If this guy doesn't go to work everyday, no checks.
I'm building a business that is giving me a residual
income with checks coming in every month. In a
couple of more years I'll be making well over
$250,000.00 a year......
and not working!
My checks will be coming in from the residual income
I'm building right now.
Where's your checks going to be coming from 5
years from now?
Think you're going to be living Life with a capital L
working for Fed Ex, or Boeing, or the local utility
Where's your life going to be 5 years from now?
You are the only one that is Master of Your Own Destiny.
You are the only one that can make your dreams for
Life with a capital L come true.
Right now sit down with a piece of paper and jot
down every single thing you always wanted to do,
or would like to have.
Oh Gosh, not that old thing again.....that's stupid!
It's not going to get me anywhere anyhow, so why should I?
Well, did you know that 90% of people will spend
hours and hours planning out their vacation - yet
never plan out their life!
A couple of weeks ago I went to a cat show. My
wife and I planned our trip, what time we'd get there,
who we'd see after, and where we'd go to eat.
Took about 10 minutes.
I'll bet you we spent more time planning that trip,
than you did this entire past week planning your life!
So get out a piece of paper and write down some things
you want or where you want to be in 3 or 5 years.
Are you going to be one of those 10% of people who
follow the 4 rules Irv sent us and make that life happen?
Quit making excuses
Quit having a lottery mentality
Quit listening to all those get-rich schemes
Quit saying "if" and "I'll do it after"
Quit believing you can't do it
Believing You Do Have What It Takes
Listening to folks who are making money
Putting together a plan for your life
Putting together a plan for your business
Working harder for yourself than for others

All I Can Do
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it's not sane, its not sane

The latest issue of Fortune magazine came as I was
preparing this weeks issue of Prosperity. One of the
main articles was on investing.
Here's the opening line:
"The rich have an amazing knack for getting richer. Their secret?
They get great advice." There you have it folks, just what I have been
telling you all along here. The multi-millionaires are getting richer
and richer because they seek out expert advice on how to invest.
Second point the article says is, They then get a strategy, or long
term plan on how they are going to invest. While I may not have
too many multi-millionaires reading this publication, I
do have thousands of wannabee millionionaires.
How you gonna get there?
Seek expert advice
Have a plan
Now Go Do It

never have it. The only real security that a man
can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge,
experience, and ability."

Our Reader's Comments:
I believe a lot of people are taken in by the hype -
Earn $500-$5,00 month P/T, F/T. When they commence
their business, they expect immediate results for
little work. (Often this is what is "promised") While
they are "fired up" with enthusiusm they get the word
out and when they don't get the response they
expected, they tend to get disallusioned.
Running ANY business takes time and effort. I have
found that on the internet, you have to be repetitive
and continually find different sources of advertising
etc. to get word out about your business and make it
known. I'm pretty stubborn so I don't give up too
easily. I haven't cracked the million yet, but who
knows, one day I might. LOL

sits down to plan how to get money without earning it."
