When everything seems to be going against you…

The world is NOT against you

Ned D Hanks NH13-300x300 When everything seems to be going against you...

With this pandemic going on do you feel that the whole world is against you? Does it seem like there are obstacles around every corner, and they are getting bigger?

The airplane takes of against the wind.

Steel is made harder with heat.

Adversity and hard times can be the fuel for you to accomplish anything you want.

Overcome fear with excitement

Ned D Hanks NH8-300x300-1 Overcome fear with excitement

I’ll be the first to admit, I get scared, anxious and sometimes sick to my stomach, when I am doing something that is very uncomfortable or new. I have been able to overcome this by getting excited about what I’m doing. Let’s say I’m contacting people about a product I’m promating, people I know but not well. I get very anxious, scared of what they will think of me or what will happen. I have found if I meditate, read my goals, read my personal mission statement and listen to music, I will get excited about what I’m doing and the fear and anxiety goes away.

Vision is not enough

Ned D Hanks NH10-300x300-1-300x300 Vision is not enough

Vision is not enough you must take action.

Let’s say that you have the written and most awesome goals. You have created a vision board, and a goal card. You read your card multiple times a day.

But, if you do not take action you will not achieve anything.

Are you setting S.M.A.R.T. goals?

Goal setting is, in my opinion, the most important things you can do for your personal and professional life.  This is not just in your mind, but writing down and placed where the goals can be reviewed every day. How to set goals that I can complete.

Ned D Hanks SMART-Goals-300x300 Are you setting S.M.A.R.T. goals?

The technique I learned is SMART

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Timely


Be specific in the goal not vague.  Many people say “6 figure income” instead use a specific amount, $123,454.00.  Say you aretrying to grow your email list, don’t use “Double my Email List” instead say, “I will have 9789 people on my email list”.
Another way is to answer the 5 W’s, What, Why, Who, Where, Which.
  • What: $132,034.00
  • Why: Replace my corporate salary
  • Who: I, or if working with partner then We
  • Where: Where you can see your goal accomplished, is it a trip to another country, in office, etc
  • Which: Details about trip or car, details about sales goal, “500 Sales”.

The goal does not have to use all W’s, but the more the better.


How will you measure the goal.  Might seam easy if goal is an income amount.  What if goal is number of sales,  member in downline.  Again, don’t be vague.  “I will have 9789 on my email list by adding 100 per week.”


Yes, goal needs to be achievable but also needs to push your limits.   If you have been making a monthly income of $12,000 then saying “$15,000”  is probably not a stretch.  Better to say “Monthly income of $20,000.”


Goal needs to be relevant to your personal or professional life.   Example: You sell weight loss, supplements and health productions online.  Having a goal to buy an apartment building might not be relevant. (I’m not saying buying an apartment building is not a good goal, just as an example)

Time Sensitive

Give a specific date to achieve the goal.  Don’t say ‘In 2 months’  instead say “March 31st, 2015”.  The   goal should be writing as if you have already achieved it.


“Today is March 2nd, 2019, I am in my office looking at my sales income for the last 3 months.   I have made an average of $20,143 income each month. I did this by helping people acheive their goals”
This is only one goal.  You will probably have many.  I currently have 3 goals writing down.   I print out my goals and post in my office, bedroom and carry a copy with me.

Stop learning, Start doing

Ned D Hanks NH41-300x300-1 Stop learning, Start doing Know when to say “Enough is Enough”

Are you trying to learn everything there is about business you are doing?
This can be overwhelming and time consuming and a waste of time.
You can spend all your time training and learning, but not doing the things that
actually makes money.  You are waiting for when you think you are ready or its perfect.
Often this is just an excuse for not putting yourself ‘out there’.

Just Do It

What are you waiting for?  There is not such thing as perfection or I’m ready
One of the best learning tools is to make mistakes.  The way to make your business better is to make mistakes.  
Try different advertisements, if one doesn’t work, stop using it.  Use social media, Facebook,
Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.  

Your world

The people that you are attracting will not see your world with all the mistakes and imperfections.  Remember this “some peoples trash is other peoples treasure”.  


A business that makes mistakes will make money, but a business that does not do anything will not.

The Most Important Thing

Ned D Hanks NH1-300x300-1 The Most Important Thing

What is the most important thing I can do?

One of the things I do every morning is look at my tasks, and say to my self ‘What task can I do to move me towards my goal?’. Then this task is has the highest priority For the day.

This will not work if you do not have definite and specific goals. And, create plans to achieve those goals. A goal with out a plan of action is just a dream.
