This week Haanel starts off with a very interesting phrase, “The money consciousness is an attitude of mind; it is the open door to the arteries of commerce. It is the receptive attitude.” Some people would think of “money consciousness” as the love of money, but that’s is incorrect thinking. You better be money conscious or you won’t be able to pay your bills!
If you work for someone else, whether a small, medium or large business, that business has an obligation to pay you when they said they would. But you don’t have to worry about whether the customers of your employer are paying their bills, which is how you get paid. That’s not your problem and not your worry. You have a job because your employer created your position because he felt it was necessary to either maintain or grow his business. If you don’t do the best you can and give it 101%, just a little bit more, then you are not helping the owner to continue growing his business. And your position could be eliminated. But….it’s the same for your employer. If he doesn’t provide a product/service that serves the needs of his customers, he will not have a business for long. And you both will be in the unemployment line!
Haanel states, “We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them.” “The first law of success then is service, and this in turn is built on integrity and justice.” If you’re not fair and just in your business dealings, whether we’re talking about your customers, employers, employees; your business or your job will not last. You may win for a while, but no one can be successful being unjust to others.
“You can make a money magnet of yourself, but to do so you must first consider how you can make money for other people.” Wow!!…..that is a powerful statement! Think about that for a minute. You can apply that statement to any position! Whether you are the company owner or an employee. And if you are an employee at the bottom, you meditate on that sentence and make it happen and you, my friend, will be moving up in that company. And if you move up what happens to your income? It goes up!! “If you have the necessary insight to perceive and utilize opportunities and favorable conditions and recognize values, you can put yourself in position to take advantage of them, but your greatest success will come as you are enabled to assist others.” “What benefits one must benefit all.”
But…how do we get the ideas or insight we need to make money for other people? That happens in “The Sit”. As we have learned on our journey in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, if you sit quietly for 15 minutes everyday and link into the “Universal Mind” (GOD) and ask Him, He will flood your mind with all the insight you need? After all….. He is the Creator! And He loves us very much! Why wouldn’t He help us be successful! Especially if our actions are just, because we will be helping others that He loves also!!!
The statement above, [“You can make a money magnet of yourself, but to do so you must first consider how you can make money for other people.”] when I first read it I thought, isn’t that how we become successful in MLM? We first contact those we know, then we help them get started, then we learn how to talk to those we don’t know and at the same time we’re helping our team grow their business. And if your motivations are just and people can see that in you……… you and your team will be successful!
AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS WE WILL ALL SEE EACH OTHER ON THE BEACHES OF THE WORLD!!!!
