Quotes from Mr. Motivator

A man who thinks for himself, and consults God before making important decisions, will avoid lots of trouble and many sleepless nights.       – Mr. Motivator –

Trouble can sometimes be the easiest thing to get into and the hardest thing to get out of.  When a voice on the inside of you says, “Something is not right about this…”  “Don’t do it!!!”  Just say “NO!”               -  Mr. Motivator –

If your feelings are saying to you this is not real love, and you have lots of unanswered questions, why rush into a relationship when there are signs signaling you to slow down, proceed with caution, detour, or exit.         – Mr. Motivator –

An idle mind is like a car left in park with the engine still running.  If the gear shift is not moved into position it will never move.  If your brain remains stuck on stupid and thinking only about past failures, just shift to drive so that you can move ahead.  
-          Mr. Motivator –

If you don’t take good care of your car, it will one day get back at you by leaving you stranded some place.  The same is true about your body.  If you treat it badly, it may abandon you at a nearby hospital and leave you hanging for dear life.   – Mr. Motivator –

Poverty is going without and not having your basic needs met, while worry and depression beats the crap out of you.         – Mr. Motivator –

Characteristics of Great Leaders

When life gives you a lemon, make some lemonade.  Whatever you do, do it with passion and be the best that you can be.  Look and talk like a professional.  If you decide to do something of importance, go first class and come back with a victory.    Dr. Lorene B. Holmes, Professor of Business at Jarvis Christian College.

1.      They learn how to see clearly when they look.

2.      They learn correctly when they lecture.

3.      They think carefully before they speak.

4.      They show respect when they serve.

5.      They maintain calm when they are challenged.

6.      They inquire critically when they are in doubt.

7.      They consider consequences when they decide.

8.      They create desirable results when they work.

9.      They do what is right when they act.

10.  They keep a good reputation.

11.  Great Leaders draw from others.  Diversity means drawing from, and embracing the talents of varied people from common goals.  The word diverse means made up of distinct characteristics and qualities.

12.  Great Leaders save 15% and still live well.

-          Most people don’t save anything at all.

-          You should pay God first.

-          Save before you spend, don’t pay your bills until you pay God first and then pay yourself next, set up an automatic saving program with your bank.

They can draw $50-$100 from your checking account each month and put it towards savings.

13.  Great Leaders shield their saving from the taxman wherever possible.  You should seek tax deferred accounts or contribute to a retirement account.

14.  Great Leaders spend more carefully.

-          Take a less expensive vacation.

-          Brown-bag your lunch a couple of days a week.

-          Look for less apparent way to save.

-          Refinance a mortgage at lower interest rate and save the monthly difference.

-          Shop for less expensive Life Insurance and etc.

15.  Great Leaders have a plan – for every area of life.  Failing to plan is planning to fail.

The strategy for a successful savings plan is to save something every payday even if it’s a small amount.  No savings goal can be reached without regular deposits.  A weekly $5.00 deposit provides you with more money at the end of the year than five $50.00 deposits scattered throughout the year.  Plan your investment strategy for building wealth, put your plan on paper, and start it with an automatic deposit in your investment account.  You don’t have to start big.  All you have to do is start.

16.  Great Leaders are wise.  They realize that they will not live forever.  Not only do they have an insurance plan, they will invest in a plan that covers their salvation.  Make sure you get your life right before the enemy of life knocks on your door. 

17.  Great Leaders never leave home without God’s plan of salvation, they make sure they’re covered and protected.

Five P’s for Coping with Stress

  1. Positive Outlook – Deal with stress head-on, with a positive outlook, seeing the problems as opportunities for personal growth, instead of obstacles interfering with “normal” life.  A negative approach to stress admits defeat before the fight has begun.  (James 1:2).

  1. Perseverance – Don’t put it off—deal with stressful situations immediately.  The sooner the problem is conquered, the better.  Plow through the problem to its end, no matter what you encounter along the way.  After you receive the victory, do not dwell on the problem any longer.  (II Timothy 2:3-7).

  1. Purpose – Try to discover why you may be going through a particularly stressful period.  Usually there is a lesson to be learned.  Perhaps a deep-seated problem is being revealed, or you have something to learn about your communication and relationships with others.  (I Peter 5:10,11).

  1. Patience – Be patient with others, in spite of the added pressure.  It is easy to vent your frustrations by snapping off at others, even those you love most dearly.  Avoid such an immature action at all costs—it only leads to further problems.  (James 1:19).

  1. Preparation – Be prepared for encountering stress, as it is a part of life.  A person prepared for anything can glide through a stressful situation with an almost unbelievable peace of mind.  A certain elderly lady was able to accept her husband’s serious illness with surprising peace because she had daily prepared herself by nurturing her faith and reading the Bible every day.  (Isaiah 23:6).

The Changeling Eagle

An American Indian legend tells about a brave who found an eagle’s egg and put it into the nest of a prairie chicken.  The eaglet hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them.  All his life, the changeling eagle – thinking he was a prairie chicken – did what the prairie chickens did.

He scratched in the dirt for seeds and insects to eat.  He clucked and cackled.  And, he flew in a brief thrashing of wings and flurry of feathers no more than a few feet off the ground.  After all, that was the way prairie chickens were supposed to fly.

Years passed.  The changeling eagle grew very old.  One day, he saw a magnificent bird far above him in the cloudless sky.  Hanging with graceful majesty on the powerful wind currents, it soared with scarcely a beat of its strong golden wings.  “What a beautiful bird!” said the changeling eagle to his neighbor.  “What is it?”

“That’s an eagle, the chief of the birds,” his neighbor clucked.  “But don’t give it a second thought.  You could never be like him.”  So the changeling eagle never gave it another thought.  And, it died thinking it was a prairie chicken.

It’s all too easy to go through life
Believing we’re prairie chickens
when we’re really eagles.
Doing so shortchanges us and everyone else.
Be what you are!
Recognize your strengths,
your abilities, and your potential.
Don’t stay on the ground
when you have it in you to soar!

Mr. Motivator’s Business Tips: Become Tech Savvy

Interactive Communication. It is amazing to see the numbers increasing of small businesses that are moving to interactive websites that encourage customers to stay in touch – often by building in technology for providing online customer services. Going beyond product promotion, these sites offer email and other interactive features.

E-commerce. These sites allow customers to transact business directly online. You can even post your catalog online, let customers browse through your product offerings, select what they want, put selected items into their online “shopping carts”and then check out at the cashier, making payment by credit card. The opportunities are limited mainly by your imagination.

Promote your site. Look for ways to promote your site. You can place it on business cards, letterheads, and sales brochures. You can also mention your web address (called the “URL” for universal resource location) on flyers, newspaper ads, radio and TV spots.

Give visitors a reason to return. Web merchants have come to realize that site visitors are more likely to stick around if useful information and other interesting content is provided besides product facts or sales material. The kind of content you add will depend on your business and your customer base.

Communicate with Prospects and Customers. One especially effective way is to keep visitors returning to your site is to stay in touch via e-mail. This requires that you invite visitors to provide you with contact information about themselves, including their email addresses. Also, encourage visitors to email their comments. Ask them what they like, and whether they find it easy to navigate. With the right monitoring, you can continually fine tune your site, and improve its marketing effectiveness.

Today’s Women are making big bucks

Working from your home totally levels the sexual playing field.  Women do as well as men.  They report earning from $6000 per year for those needing a little extra money—to over $100,000 per year by eager and dedicated entrepreneurs.
There are several reasons for the female revolt against traditional employment.
  • Moms need money but want to be at home with their kids.
  • They are divorced with no marketable skills and do not want to work in an office or factory.
  • The family needs a second paycheck.
  • They are saving to buy a house, a car, or some other expensive purchase.
  • Parents are saving to set up a college fund for their children.
  • They are wisely saving for retirement.
  • They are building a short-term emergency cash fund so they won’t be caught financially off-guard.
  • They are unable to find work in a dwindling job market.
Many look at the heavy influx of women into the home business field as a “female declaration of independence.”  They say it helps account for the fact that 66% of home businesses are owned by women.

Mr. Motivator - Dwight Jeffery

Hello, I'm Mr. Motivator.

If you dare to dream, your vision will become your future.  Over the years, I've learned that a winning team wins more games because they enjoy winning.  Therefore, they recruit players that are use to winning and their goal is to win every game.  A true winner will do the little things that others will avoid because they are committed and passionate about winning.  No one wants to be on a losing team that constantly drops the ball and gives up on winning.

Mr. Motivator's Vision:

Is to help you crystallize your dreams and reach your goals.

Mr. Motivator's Mission:

Is to inspire people to dream big by offering tools that teach people creative and innovative, goal-setting techniques for success in life.  I believe that you can transform your mind by becoming aware of negative thoughts and by feeding your mind with positive information, you will automatically begin to produce ideas, strategies and solutions for solving problems in your life and others.

More job lay-offs are coming!  Take action!  You must make a quality decision about your future.  Don't procrastinate if you realize your potential abilities and what opportunity is facing you.  Sometimes fear of the unknown is the biggest factor that causes many people to stay in a rut and to give up so easily.

In order to capture your future, you need to get all the facts, study your market and then analyze it.  Next, you may need to ask yourself a few basic questions and truthfully answer them.  For example, do I have a game plan?  What is the worst thing that could happen to me if I make the wrong move?  Do I choose to be the one that is making the money or do I choose to be the one that is making the burgers?  Am I afraid of the internet and new technology?

Just by answering the questions above, you can now make a quality decision ahead and set goals that will help you achieve future success
