101 | Defining Infinite Potential 2 a Finite Mind | BBA in Life

People have perspective, “World View” which is based on their past, their history.  This can be very self-limiting. In order to expand a person’s horizons, their perspective becomes an obstacle, or a tool, depending on how well you understand this. Put simply, in order to move someone upward from where they are, you must first understand who they are, and where they are coming from, and this is done by asking questions, leading questions. In a way, all questions are leading questions, because the person who is asking is leading, and the person who answers is following. A question is not just words, but also tone, volume, body language, and conviction.  Some of my favorite ways to start these questions are: Imagine that…what would you say then? What if I told you that…what would you say then? What if…what would you do then? What do you think about ….? How do you feel about…? My favorite question is this one: “Forget for a moment everything that you believe to be true: suppose that tomorrow it was revealed to you that what actually was true was this…how differently would you act then, what would you do differently?” By challenging someone to change for a moment their self-limiting assumptions, and consider another point of view as the truth, you allow them to experience a broader perspective. In fact, what you decide to believe is real to you! Ask a thousand people what is real truth, and you will get 1000 completely different answers.  The world you live in is largely created by your beliefs.  People get confused between cause and effect.  If you through a rock into still waters, you cause ripples.  If you cut someone, they bleed, and you become a cutter. Since what you do is up to you, what you believe is also up to you. The most important decision that you will ever make, is what you decide to believe, because that belief is what creates your world, your limitations, and your true potential.  Yet most people are simply at effect, what I call sheeple.  They believe whatever is fed to them, what others believe, and what is easy to believe, and...

What you believe Manifests Reality

The most important decisions you can make have to do with what you teach your children. Even at the youngest age, and even if you die young, nothing is more important in your life than what it is that you teach your children. A child is a clean slate, with so much potential, and so impressionable.  They depend on you, learn everything from you, by watching you, by mimiking you, by reacting to you and the environement you provide to them.  This is the basis of the decisions that they make later in life, and for everything that results from those decisions. There is no more sacred and long lasting task than to do well as a parent.  There is no experience that will challenge you more, make you learn more, or shape you more than parenthood. Too many parents take this too lightly.  Your mistakes will haunt you, and them, for a lifetime; just as your triumphs in this area will reward you, and them, with joy and triumph, for a lifetime. What you do as a parent, will change their lives, and your life, for eternity; and will also affect the rest of us who live in this world, for an eternity. When you love them, you create love.  When you dicipline them, you create strength and character.  When you teach them to understand things, you enlighten them; and the information you share becomes conviction in you. If you dissengage from your children, disrepect them, take advantage of them, or ignore them, you also do it to yourself, and to all of us. This is where what is called sin comes from. These mistakes carry on the seventh generation and beyond. Being a young child is much like being in a beautiful Garden, where everything is provided.  Children are clean, they know no sin, they know no nakedness, they know no remorse, and they have no fear.  But if they never were exposed to these things, they would never grow, remaining, basicly, an intelligent monkey, an animal. As they grow older, and they become more aware of their surroundings, they gain knowledge that they need to exist in an imperfect world; they...

10 Common Mistakes that Will Ruin a Good Business

10 Common Mistakes that Will Ruin a Good Business

10 common mistakes that will ruin a good business: What follows is a full disclosure of who I really am, beginning many years ago, when I had my own broker-dealer in Albuquerque NM in 1985, without knowing that I needed the permission of the local Patron to do so: This article was written in 2006: Death of great potential: the Coracle story, told by the founder: Ladies and Gentleman, it is with great sorrow, and the urgency to avoid having what happened to me, happen again, to you, that I share with you this compelling story of the huge potential of a start-up venture which almost achieved greatness in the last five years, and is now a complete loss: The story of Coracle Incorporated, formerly known as Oregonfreeads.com, and Ads for Free, Inc. Oregonfreeads.com was formed as an Oregon corporation in 2001 in Springfield Oregon. My name is Israel Rothman, and I started the company to pursue an idea that my employer could not understand: a way to automate my job. I had been in fleet and Internet sales for a local auto dealership for years, and had become proficient in achieving search engine placement for my employer. As the Internet became more and more competitive, my job became harder and harder to do, requiring me to build mirror sites linked together and employ all sorts of tricks to achieve first page organic placement: my idea was to automate this process by giving away free ads and auctions; using the user input to do my work for me, and build link-popularity and submission activity which would cause the marketplace to move through the website: oregonfreeads.com. I had some rudimentary scripts written, and began selling sponsorships of categories to local businesses. Within a year, we had over 50 companies stuck to the top of the search engines for their chosen words, and we realized that we could actually guarantee results for chosen key word searches. We decided to offer a money-back guarantee; we bought adsforfree.com for $800, and we went nationwide by way of a strategic alliance formed with Real Estate Magazine (RISMedia.com) which put us ‘on the map’ as a provider for the Real...
