Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours
February 15, 2002

It's Your Time!

We've all heard people say, "Why them?
Why not me? When will it me My Time?"

There are several things going on with that statement.
Let's take a look at them.

First is the Blame thing. Think about it though.
Part of the comment is a thinly veiled attitude that,
well - they got it so I can't.


There is enough (of everything) for us all! Another
person succeeding does not hold us back. On the
contrary. It should motivate us to believe it CAN
be done. And therefore that we then can do it.
In the words of John F. Kennedy, "A rising tide
raises all ships."

Secondly, the questions are fraught with jealousy. We all are familiar with this damaging emotion. It seems to be natural, as we all suffer from tinges of it. But one thing that all who have more than a passing acquaintance with jealousy will tell you - it can and will destroy the life of any that allow it to affect how their life is lived. Feeling a little jealous will not hurt you. Allowing it to in any way control your actions will. Note others success, learn from it, and move on.

Third is something I often hear when counseling business owners. It is based on the assumption the past failure dictates future failure. This is second only to financial un-preparedness in sinking small businesses. Why? It causes people to give up!

But isn't it the truth? NOT AT ALL! The fact of the
matter is so simple that few stumble onto it without
guidance. All of our time working towards our future
is like the stretching done before an athletic event. It is
warming up! It is the Preparation for Winning. And if it
involved failures - all the better!

In one of his TV seminars Les Brown made this
powerful statement, "In the good times you put it in
your pocket, in the bad times you put it in your heart."
Life is a grinding stone. But we live the choice - it
either wears us down or polishes us up.

Fourth: I personally believe that "it's your time"
when YOUR preparedness meets with opportunity
within God's plan.

When is it your time to WIN?
When is it your time for Money?
When is it your time for Business Success?
When is it your time for Personal Success?
When is it your time for Happiness?

When you WORK like it is all up to you,
PRAY like it is all up to God -

JetBlue founder and CEO, David Neelman has a simple
long term success formula: Give the customer more
than they expect, and do it at an affordable price.

He started small with a regional air carrier in Salt
Lake City called Morris Air. He built that business by
offering customers convenience, efficiency, and
low air rates.

Morris Air was so successful, that rival Southwest
Airlines bought them just to keep market share.
Southwest even made Neelman sign a 5 year
agreement that he would not begin another
airline to compete against Southwest.

After the agreement term was over, JetBlue was
started and within 6 months was turning a profit.
It now serves 18 cities and is one of the airline
industries most profitable companies.

In a nutshell here are Neelman's secrets to building
a successful business:

1. Have enough money at the start to back your plan.

2. Ignore the people who say it can't be done.

3. Offer the best quality possible.

4. Be as efficient as possible.

5. Be the first to offer consumers something that no one
    else carries.
