A great business movie is being snubbed by the Oscars

Here’s one script that isn’t up for Best Picture. Cut to the 1950s: a 52-year-old salesman peddles a new, multi-spindle milkshake maker to hamburger stands across the Midwest. The salesman has a simple pitch–faster milkshakes. But what he’s really selling is a concept, a futuristic vision of what business could deliver: speed, reliability, mass production.…

Here is why you should participate in the 100 Day Challenge

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BEGIN THE 100 DAY CHALLENGE TODAY with nothing more than a big goal, a bold ambitious idea and crush it in 100 days…by May 12th?

I’ve been studying that question for more than 20 years.100DayChallenge_006_1440x900

And the answer is unequivocal: YES, IT IS!

I often say that there are basically two ways to achieve a goal:

1. Slowly through small, incremental steps.

2. Quickly by following the rapid execution strategies in the 100 Day Challenge.

THINK ABOUT IT….

If the goal is to become debt free…why perpetuate the pain and do it slowly?

If the goal is to get in great shape…why on earth should it be a long draw out process?

If the goal is to become the sales leader in your company…why should it take until next year when you can wear the crown next month?

If the goal is to get rich…then you might as well get rich fast, and while your young for that matter.

The fact is…any goal, plan, intention or idea expands so as to fill and reinforce the unnecessary amount of time you’ve made available for its completion.

EXPERIENCE TELLS ME…that if you have a burning desire fueled by an indomitable will…if you’re willing to go all in for 100 days…and if you follow the proven principles of rapid execution as laid out in the 100 Day Challenge, that you can rip the knob off of 2017—and completely transform your life or business.

Michael Wilcox of Boulder Colorado did just that and accomplished the goal of paying off his $192,000 mortgage balance in get this…100 days.

This message exists to show you how, and we’ll begin by focusing on the…

100DayChallenge_098_1440x900THE BATTLE FOR YOUR MIND

I have come to the understanding that you cannot change your behavior nor improve your results until and unless you change your beliefs…and that the most important element in your strategy to win the battle for your mind and productivity is your own psychology.

Consider the ramifications of this next question slowly and seriously….

“What’s the point of having a belief system if your thoughts and beliefs do not embed feelings of high self-esteem and supreme self-confidence…if they do not embolden you to dare mighty things…if they do not empower you to make your mark on the world.

You’re not here to merely exist, to conform to weak will of the majority, to settle for mediocrity…to live small nor to break even.

You were fearfully, wonderfully and uniquely made to make a difference. You’re here to break rules, break records and to create breakthrough performances.

To do so, you must breakthrough any self-imposed limitation and resistance force that is holding you back from unleashing your greatness.

You do that by building…

A FORTRESS OF BELIEFS

When you think of a fortress….a heavily protected, impenetrable building probably comes to mind. It’s purpose is to keep you safe and secure inside the walls of the fortress, while keeping the bad guys and any harm outside.

A fortress of beliefs serves a similar purpose. It’s designed to protect you…by protecting your self-esteem…your focus, time, wealth, health, mental well-being, productivity and your reputation.

A strong mental fortress ensures that you are not susceptible to outside negative influence or mental disturbance in any way.

And, when it comes to success, the attraction of wealth, maximizing productivity and FAST TRACKING YOUR GOALS…nothing else really matters.

Why? Because…if you can’t protect your thinking, if you can’t keep negative or limiting100DayChallenge_100_1440x900 thoughts at bay, if you don’t build a fortified wall to protect your productivity…your results and peace of mind will ALWAYS be compromised.

You cannot afford to be delusional nor naïve about this truth: hostile forces constantly attack – with an array of weaponry including negative self-talk, pity, fear, false assumptions, accepted societal norms, other people’s opinions, all forms of media, along with the constant disruptions of email, phone calls, text and social messaging, and more.

These REAL weapons of mass destruction… stop productivity dead in its tracks.

Precisely because people have not learned how to diligently built a fortress of beliefs to protect them against their deadly influence…they find their hopes, dreams, ideas, careers, finances and even their marriages in serious disrepair and ruin.

When it comes to this attack against your mind and productivity, however, you don’t have to accept defeat…but you do have to accept the idea that building a fortress of beliefs is a LARGE PART of the solution.

So how do you do it…what’s the brick and mortar needed to build a strong, powerful, healthy fortress that protects you from the people, places and things that are aggressively determined to win the battle for your mind?

The four criteria for building, measuring and nurturing your fortress of beliefs are the following.

1. Your beliefs must…create positive, consistent and sustainable results.

To determine the strength and utilitarian value of your beliefs, simply look at your results as they serve as judge, jury, and executioner of your performance.

The purpose of your beliefs is to drive results…not to deflate them…to confront fear….not surrender to it.

Behavior is the physical manifestation of your beliefs and behavior never lies…which means your results tell you and the world everything you need to know about the quality and value of your beliefs.

2. Your beliefs must…bring you peace of mind.

Low self-esteem, anxiety, insomnia, chaos, depression, guilt, and shame are the result of a corrupted belief system.

If these beliefs dominate your thinking, then you have in effect built a mental prison and condemned yourself to living a small, fear-filled life…not a fortified belief system that allows your spirit to soar.

There is zero upside to self-limiting, negative beliefs…ONLY clean, pure and positive beliefs help you to fast track your goals and live the bold, ambitious and beautiful life you’ve always imagined.

3. Your beliefs must…make you feel safe and secure.

A mental fortress just like a physical fortress is meant to protect you and make you feel safe.

If your fortress contains elements of fear, doubt and worry…if your belief system says that lying, cheating and dishonoring commitments is acceptable behavior…I assure you that your belief system has been seriously damaged.

4. Your beliefs must…unleash your full potential.

It’s actually pretty simple. Your beliefs either empower you to rise to meet the mental demands and physical rigors of big challenging goals, or they undermine your ability to do so.

Precisely because victory or failure ALWAYS begins in the mind is reason enough as to why you need to build a strong, healthy fortress of beliefs.

To reinforce what I said earlier…the most important element in your strategy to win the battle for your mind and productivity is your own psychology.

Therefore, allow me to share the fortress of beliefs that serve as the foundational core of the 100 Day Challenge…and which will allow you to create a series of performance explosions.

If they don’t inspire you to question and liquidate any counterproductive attitudes, approaches, superstitions, or beliefs that are holding you back from unleashing your greatness…than nothing will.

To receive maximum value from your participation in the 100 Day Challenge and to make 2017 the best year of your life…

You must believe that no matter how successful you or your organization has been in the past…that you have far more to offer the world than what you are currently displaying.

You must believe that you have the ability to multiply your performance, dramatically exceed your best expectations, and achieve goals on a scale that in the past seemed impossible.

You must believe that you have no legal or moral obligation or, for that matter, logical reason to settle for small, marginal…incremental growth.

You must believe that you were fearfully, wonderfully and uniquely made to make a difference…and that destiny is calling in 2017.

You must believe that in order for you to create a performance explosion, that you need to give up a few things to include false assumptions about how fast you change your life, self-limiting beliefs that undermine progress and the comfort zone that holds you back from unleashing your greatness.

The 100 Day Challenge was created to show you how to fend off ALL the enemies of productivity and how to get more accomplished in 100 days than most people do over the course of ten years.

Your mindset for the moment may be flawed by doubt and skepticism. I completely understand.

The idea of making huge performance leaps, jumping from your present level of achievement to one several stages higher in 100 days is an alien idea.

You have not been trained to think that way…and you may very well have definite reservations about the possibility that you can make such exponential improvement at all in such an abbreviated time frame.

However, I assure you that your doubts and skepticism are rooted in mental limitation. Your doubts are NOT the product of accurate thinking but habitual thinking.

My advice at this moment is that if you want to be skeptical of some ideas that truly deserve to be called into question, challenge the thoughts and beliefs that have argued against your taking big, bold and audacious moves.

Doubt is the enemy of hope; it does the majority of damage. Therefore, don’t give it any mental space.

From the moment you begin the 100 Day Challenge…I encourage you to proceed boldly…to act as if it is completely inconceivable that you will experience anything other than a significant leap in your performance.

And, if you still feel like doubting something, doubt your self-imposed limits…because you are here to unleash your greatness, and it would be my honor to show you how.

Get ready…get set…as it’s go time….enrollment is open but ONLY for a very short time.

Everything Counts!

Make your voice heard in the upcoming hearings in Florida regarding medical marijuana regulation

The Department of Health has proposed rules for Amendment 2

Here is an article about the proposed Department of Health Hearings.

February 6-9, 2017 staff members from the DOH Office of Compassionate Use are visiting five Florida cities. The tour is an effort by the Department to fulfill the public comment requirements.  

Anyone can make a comment about the implementation of Amendment 2 through the Departments’ online form found here. 

If you are passionate about ensuring patients have safe, legal access to cannabis, consider attending and speaking at a meeting near you.

Items to speak out about!

  • Changing the definition of caregiver – Any close blood relative should be allowed to act as a caregiver without a background check. A level 1 background check won’t exclude a con artist or swindler from becoming a caregiver and extorting a patient, unless the rules exempt people convicted of fraud or elder abuse. 
  • Don’t ask Doctors to order specific quantities of cannabis. The proposed rules require doctors to “order” specific quantities of cannabis, which is too much like an unlawful prescription and puts doctors at risk under federal law. If doctors don’t participate, patients won’t be able to enroll.
  • Let the doctor make the decision if cannabis is right for the patient. The proposed rules give the Florida Board of Medicine — not the patient’s doctor — the ability to determine whether the patient’s condition is “substantially similar” to those listed in the amendment.
  • Ensure doctors can re-authorize our recommendation every 45-days without a subsequent visit! Patients can’t afford to pay a doctor, often out of pocket, every 45-days just to stay on the registry.

When preparing to speak, here are some things to consider. 

  • Know what you’re talking about. Read the proposed rules carefully and look up the references. 
  • The DOH can only implement the laws as written in the Constitution or written in Florida Statute. Make sure you understand the difference and speak to what DOH can actually do. Here is the full statute as it exists.
  • Don’t try to cover more than one or two items when you speak. Pick your point, have your facts on hand and make it relevant.
  • There will be forms available before the meeting, get there early and fill one out. Your statement becomes part of the official record and the information you provide is public.
  • Your time will be limited to three minutes or less. If enough people ask to speak you could get one minute. Get to your point quickly.
  • Don’t waste time introducing yourself. They have your form. Get to your point quickly.

Here are the times and locations of the public hearings. You don’t have to attend to be heard.


Remember, everyone can comment through
this online form.

Feb 62:00 pm Office of Compassionate Use Public Hearing – Duval County Health Department, 900 University Blvd. North in Jacksonville

Feb 710:00 am – Office of Compassionate Use Public Hearing – Broward County Health Department, 780 SW 24th Street in Fort Lauderdale

Cut the Fluff, Get to the Stuff

Belleyre Books

cut-the-fluff2

The title of my post refers to the basic concept behind the In 90 Pages books. I’ve been teaching, lecturing, promoting, and using Microsoft Office since 1995 (Office 95, aka Office 7). I’ve written many textbooks more than 400 pages in length, and they served their purpose. But now I’m meeting more and more students who haven’t been able to take a computer applications class, yet are expected to “just know” how to properly format a Word document, or put together an effective PowerPoint presentation, and even present their data in Excel using charts.

On the professional side, I’ve talked to business people who felt limited in their knowledge of Word. Business letters that “did the job” but lacked the polish were the norm. Where a formatted table would have grabbed the reader’s attention, the extra time required to learn tables meant that plain text data separated by tabs had to…

My 2017 goal of $100,000 for 100

This month I have set myself a goal of helping 100 people earn $100,000 in 2017. Now, while many may scoff at such a goal, it is doable and even might I say likely. Are you going to be one of the 100? For some I know, $100,000 would be a life changer while others I know, the $100,000 would be a nice addition but nothing too remarkable. Whichever group you are in you are welcome to join my team to make this come to fruition. This is NOT a lottery, this is a business which requires work and dedication to earn honest money.

100k2

Some of my business background is being a franchisor, so in deciding which vehicle I could use to propel this goal forward is seems like the best business model for rapid growth. The only issue with my particular franchise company is that the average investment is around $300,000 — an amount unattainable by most people. So, similar to franchising is direct selling which has many of aspects to franchising, but with a much lower threshold initial investment. This is a business model that I have also been involved, which has been very good to me in the past. As with any new business, participants will need to work hard and follow a proven system to succeed; and though there are no guarantees, I genuinely believe we can have a winning team of 100 people earning over $100,000 in 2017.

In my search for which company to align myself with, I chose the new startup Vasayo. Although there are many other factors, one is the proven success leaders have had in the past with direct selling.

Through my Blue Shark Health entity, I am seeking 100 people devoted to growing an international business — your own international business. We will show you exactly what to do based on a proven success model. Do not deviate from this model and we will all benefit.

We are currently in the United States and Canada; we will soon be in China and many other countries around the globe. Joining now is ideal for your future growth and your future earnings.

So, I ask that you take a leap of faith by joining my team TODAY so that by the close of this year, your bank account is greater, the vacations you take (some on us) are in the very best locations on Earth, and you ease the stress associated with NOT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY.

Lastly, if you think earning $100,000 is too lofty, that perhaps you’ve never earned that much in any year, then, even though we’ll help you get there, set your goal at $50,000, because I know if you dedicate yourself, you can do that! JOIN NOW to make 2017, your best year ever.

Thank you,

Karl
