Do You Know John C. Maxwell? A Review

John C. Maxwell. Pretty popular name. But the personality behind the name is anything but common. In my frequent visits to business and government offices, I come across this man’s works more often the works of any other author.

It would seem some business and political leaders actually dedicate entire sections of their bookshelves to works by John C. Maxwell. And ordinary folks just can’t imagine a book collection that doesn’t include at least one of Maxwell’s classics.

Born in Garden city Michigan in 1947, John C. Maxwell followed his father into the Christian ministry, receiving bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees in ministry-related disciplines, including 5 honorary doctorates of divinity degrees.

For more than 25 after that, Maxwell led churches in California, Indiana, and Ohio. But it would seem the church environment didn’t quite provide him the complete avenue to make the sort of impact on people that he craved.Thus in 1995, Mr. Maxwell drastically scaled down religious engagements to devote more time to public speaking and writing—especially writing.

Driven by a passion for leadership and a desire to add value to the lives of people, John has spent decades researching and writing on leadership principles, teaching publicly, and generally inspiring and motivating people everywhere.

He founded INJOY in 1985 in San Diego California with the sole aim of developing leaders of excellence and integrity. The company was later moved to Atlanta Georgia in 1997. “Maximum Impact” was established a few years after that, again with the aim of training leaders who would make a positive difference in the lives of those around them.

Typically, John Maxwell’s trainings are done through large events as well as corporate training programs organized across the United States and Canada. Outside North America, his trainings are accessible through high quality resources in the form of books, audio and DVD coaching kits, as well as monthly mentoring subscriptions.

Today, he’s an internationally recognized author and leadership expert. He has over 50 books under his name which together have sold some 16 million copies. John C. Maxwell is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week Best-Selling Author.

As at the last count, three of his books—Developing the Leader within You, 21 Indispensable Qualities Of A Leader, And 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership—have each grossed over a million copies in sales. He is one of only 25 authors and artists listed in’s 10th Anniversary Hall Of Fame. All told, John C. Maxwell organization’s has trained over 2 million leaders from around the world.

What can you learn from this great author and speaker?

The fact that john C. Maxwell has written dozens of books means that there is hardly any subject under the sun that he hasn’t touched in one way or the other. Every one of his books and other products are designed to help the reader learn to make the best of one’s talents—or the lack thereof.

He believes that nothing pre-disposes a person for success or failure. And it’s hard to disagree with that since we are daily surrounded by lots of talents that got misdirected and wasted, as well as average persons who’ve achieved astounding success through resilience and focus.

By thus helping individuals to make the most of their unique circumstances in life, this renowned mentor has helped millions to beat the odds and become a source of inspiration.

Tom Peters Review

Tom Peters is generally regarded as one of the inventors of modern management principles and practice. A recent survey undertaken on behalf of the publisher, Bloomsbury, named him the “third most important management thinker alive today”. Fortune magazine once described him as “the uber-guru of management.”

The book “In Search of Excellence” which he co-authored with Bob Waterman has severally been crowned the “Greatest business book of all time.”

His name is Tom Peters. And few discussions about modern management practice are considered complete without the inclusion of one or two of his ideas. Born in 1942 in Baltimore Maryland, Tom peters studied Engineering at Cornell University. He went on to obtain higher degrees at Stanford (MBA, PhD).

Between 1966 and 1970, he served on active duty in the US Navy in Vietnam and Washington. He later cut his consulting teeth at McKinsey and Co. between 1974 and 1981, later becoming a partner in the firm. He then quit and established his own company, the Tom Peters Group.

After co-writing the bestseller, “In Search of Excellence” in 1982, which highlights best management practices among successful corporations, he later went on the lecture circuit, promoting the ideas contained in the book to business executives across the US and elsewhere.

Tom Peters is believed to have shaped the idea of modern management more than any other thinker in the past six decades. Particularly since 1982 with the publication of “In Search Of Excellence”, he has helped American firms in no small way to deal with competitive challenges to their global dominance.

Tom has gotten many American corporations to move away from business strategies based solely on numbers. Most firms and Home business have now improved their competitive edge by re-focusing on the basic drivers of all successful businesses which Tom identifies as people, customers, values, action-execution, a perpetual self-renewing entrepreneurial spirit, and culture, where culture strictly refers to a company’s unique and consistent way of doing things, what Tom calls “The way we do things around here.”

These points are supposed to be obvious. But not a few CEOs often overlook or at least downplay the importance of incorporating these values into their organization’s operations. But considering that these ideas have so very often helped even floundering firms to regain their competitive edge, it is gradually becoming obvious that these ideas will always be the bedrock and a major differentiator of business excellence, as well as the cause of constant and remarkably rapid slippages wherever they are overlooked even for a moment.

On his part, Tom Peters still unabashedly continues to hammer on the need to run a business based on these initiatives. It is the continuous positive impact of Tom Peters’ ideas on businesses that has led the likes of Los Angeles Times to describe him as a “foremost management inventor” as well as ‘one of the inventors of the management guru industry.

” The paper believes that “to a large extent, what American corporations have become is what Tom Peters has encouraged them to be,” describing him as “the father of the post-modern corporation.”

Are you are a MLM or Online business owner who haven’t been running your business in line with the thoughts outlined above, well, how has that been working for you? A lot of MLM business fail because people do not treat their home based business like a business.There is no denying the fact that business that are doing well must be doing many things right.

Conversely, those that are faring badly must be doing most things wrong. Why not put Tom Peters’ management ideas to work in your MLM or Home Based Business and watch out for positive effects?

Who Is This Jerry Clark?—a Review

Jerry Clark is a legend in the Network Marketing industry. If you’re a network marketer or direct sales promoter, chances are that you’ve at one time or the other sought for MLM success tips from one guru or the other. Nothing wrong with that: you sure need directions to navigate your way successfully in the mazy world of modern network marketing.

And there are quite a number of people out there who claim to have what it takes to succeed in MLM. But very few really do. Most simply have their eyes in your pockets. The moment you purchase their “coaching” products, phew, there job is done! Next they’ll blame your lack of success on a set of attitudes they’ll claim you didn’t display. If you’ve been in network marketing long enough, you sure know what I’m saying.

So when I first heard about this Jerry Clark and his Club Rhino Inc., the first thoughts that ran through my mind was ‘here they go again.’ But in my usual approach, I felt I should at least do some search to know if he’s worth listening to or if I should go ahead and dump him where majority of the other so-called gurus already belong. Here’s what I found.

First I did searches on Google and Amazon. The searches returned several books, video and audio products produced by Jerry Clark, some of them in hot demand—including titles like “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants”, “Murphy’s Committee”, “The Magic Of Influence” etc.

Not done, I dug further into his resources and was eventually brought to his main website, the Rhino Club inc. The site claimed to be dedicated to equipping individuals, especially network marketers with the insights, strategies, tools, and philosophies they need to actualize their MLM dreams. The website features lots of articles and other resources. One particular article caught my attention.

It was written by Jerry himself. He tagged it the “17 Words That Changed My Life Forever.” In the article, Jerry identified those 17 words to be the following: “For things to change, you must get a picture of what you want them to change to.”

You the reader, do you have any doubts at all that this statement is totally true? Ok, if you do, consider this: Suppose you went to a shop and got yourself a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. But somehow, the box has no picture of what the completed puzzle should look like.

Now, wouldn’t you have a much harder time putting the picture together? Definitely yes. True, you may eventually figure things out through trial and error. But isn’t it true that someone who had a clear picture of what the final picture should look like will be more than 100 times ahead of you? That’s the point!

Now, it’s good to ask yourself this question: is that person who solved the puzzle faster than you really more intelligent than you? Is their IQ really 100 times greater than yours? Or are they really 100 times better looking than you? We both know the answers, don’t we?
Through objective lessons such as this, Jerry Clark masterfully helps his students to deliberately live a clearly defined life. He believes that achievements are easier to make once they’re clearly identified.

This is in harmony with the way the human brain works. The brain, operating much like a magnet, it will start to attract in your direction the conditions, people, and circumstances that will help move you closer to the mental picture you’re carrying in your head, while at the same time repelling those things that do not correlate to that picture.

So, you say you desire a change in your life? Fine. But make sure you have a clear picture of what you want things to change to! Those are the words that have changed Jerry Clark’s life. He went on to become a millionaire while still in his 20s. Today he conducts seminars in over 35 countries worldwide. Could those words change your life too?

It Took Just a Book: Bob Proctor Review

If you’ve ever listened to Bob Proctor speak, you’ll agree that there’s something unique about his lectures. Besides being packed with the information, inspiration and wisdom a person needs to transform their lives, he does something else: unlike most other programs out there which do their best to convince people that they can do anything they set out to do,

Bob Proctor’s programs supply the last piece of the puzzle by explaining what it is we’ll have to do to achieve those goals we so cherish, why we must do it and, more importantly, how we must do it.

Bob proctor is an accomplished author, lecturer, business consultant, counselor, entrepreneur and a preacher—he preaches the gospel of positive thinking, self-motivation, and the maximization of human potential.

He has closely followed in the footsteps of such motivational greats as Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale and Wallace D. Wattles, some of whom he acknowledges as mentors. Bob Proctor’s extraordinary teaching skills have won him worldwide acclaim and have taken this Canadian-born motivator to all corners of the earth. Today, he is as well known in Australia and Malaysia as he is in North America.

Helping firms and employees to grow, improve, and adapt to change, Proctor’s wide ranging teaching efforts with businesses and entrepreneurs go far beyond the usual pep rally syndrome. His approach encompasses working with business entities to help them develop strategies that will help employees at all levels to constantly grow and improve and remain competitive in today’s ever-changing business environment.

Maybe the reason Bob Proctor is so discerning into the factors that limit success among people is traceable to his early experiences in life. For the first 26 years of his life, Bob lived a life lacking in purpose and direction, just drifting along and hoping that somehow luck would see him through.

Born in a little known town in Ontario, Canada, and with a terribly low self-esteem that’s typical of most middle and low class families, Bob performed poorly in school and would drop out before completing high school.

After drifting from one dead-end job to another, Bob Proctor eventually encountered a friend who recognized that there were at least some potential in Bob—which Bob himself probably didn’t even know. Proctor was introduced to Napoleon Hill’s classic, THINK AND GROW RICH.

The book sparked off in him a desire and the drive for personal success and purposeful living. First, Bob Proctor started an office cleaning business which he grew to international scope within just a year of operation. The rest, as they say, is history.

Bob Proctor prefers to describe himself as a teacher of universal laws which would help anyone who applies them to achieve financial success. But he also teaches that wealth isn’t just about money alone, for which reason he shows his students how to better all aspects of their lives. But not one to shy away from his convictions, Proctor insists that everyone who so desires can and should be financially rich!

Despite his lowly beginning, Bob Proctor is today seen as one of the leading lights in the personal development industry. And despite starting out with very little education, Bob has created a multitude of businesses, some of which spans the globe. And it all started with a book: Think and Grow Rich.

What will it take to unlock the huge potential locked within you? Don’t throw in the towel: The discovery just may be nearer than you think!

Robert Kiyosaki is a widely admired personality. And just in case you have any doubts about his popularity, a simple search in Google will convince you. Born Robert Toru Kiyosaki in Hawaii in 1947, he is a fourth generation Japanese-America.

After his education, Robert joined the elite U.S. Marine Corps and fought in Vietnam as a military pilot. Back in the States after disengaging from the military, he worked briefly with the Xerox Company as a sales executive.

Robert is a successful businessman, investor and author of several books. His most famous book, RICH DAD POOR DAD remained on the New York Times bestseller list for a long time. It is now generally accepted that the book, more than anything else, has projected Mr. Kiyosaki’s image to a worldwide audience. With carefully chosen words and vivid examples, the book highlights why people spend their entire life working to make ends meet but have nothing to show for it.

In the book, Robert unequivocally stated that the way to wealth and financial independence was not to be found in salaries, no matter how large. Robert advises every individual to start a business of their own as that is the only route to financial security.

There are insinuations in some quarters that Robert Kiyosaki exaggerated several aspects of his achievements and early childhood experiences. For example, there are doubts as to whether the Rich Dad in his book is merely a fictional character. There are also allegations that the millions of dollars he obviously grosses in income each year actually come from sales of books as well as from his audio and personal presentations.

Some online gurus and others who read his books further claim that some of the wealth-building recommendations offered by Mr. kiyosaki are impracticable for most persons.

I do not intend to join issues with those who hold these views. Maybe they’re right. And maybe they’re wrong. But so what? Though I do not hold brief for Mr. Kiyosaki, but as someone who has read several of his books and watched some of his presentations, I can only say that wherever they have been applied, the principles he offers do work.

However, he never promises instant wealth to anyone.
Since individual circumstances differ, it is understandable that some persons due to their own unique situations may not be able to implement some of the steps recommended by Robert.

Indeed, he was specific in telling readers and all his fans that when they do decide to start a personal business, this should be done alongside the daytime job, stating that total disengagement from the paid job should only come when the income from the new business equals or surpasses that of your daytime employment. Isn’t that practical enough?

The most important lessons to be learnt from this great mentor is to be found in the way he has helped many individuals to re-appraise the way they view money and the mechanics for building wealth. In a very simple language, he urges everyone who wants to build enduring wealth to focus on increasing income while at same time reducing expenses.

This can be achieved by ensuring that most of your spending is on things that will bring you money with time (Assets) while ensuring that other types of expenses are reduced to the barest minimum. In my opinion, those are valuable lessons in these days of acute job shortages when so many persons are struggling financially.

What I think is that most of those who oppose many of Kiyosaki’s views are already too enamored by personal habits such that they cannot even give the suggestions a try before labeling them impracticable or unrealistic. But again, I’m entitled to my own opinions, just like Robert Kiyosaki’s traducers!

With all the MLM success stories around us (and yes, most of them are true), it’s all too easy to assume that everyone going into network marketing is assured a lifetime of financial transformation. But is that really the case? Well, from personal experience, I can say that the truth lies somewhere in between.

For sure MLM can make one rich. And it is one of the most popular business options for individuals who desire to earn extra income from home. It is also one of a few businesses that one can start with minimum financial investment and grow it to unbelievable levels within a relatively short time. The opportunity itself is real. And most of the ‘incredible’ success stories you hear and read about are indeed true.

But some myths need to be cleared. One of them is that this brand of business can be run on auto-pilot. Another one like it is that in network marketing, you only need to put in minimum effort and soon you’ll see the dollars roll in. Nothing can be farther from the truth! Unfortunately many people believe this lie and come into MLM with that mindset. It is no wonder statistics show that over 95% of all who venture into network marketing fail in the business or quit within six months.

If you won’t add to those numbers, then let’s show you the only route that leads to MLM success: daily efforts. Yes, the efforts you put in on daily basis are what will determine how you’ll fare in network marketing over time. Seldom do people start a new business, sit around, do very little or nothing, and expect the business to thrive.

Put differently, rarely does anyone plant a tree on thirsty soil, water it only once and expect the tree to flourish. No, the huge corporations we have around us were not built that way. And even if you’re not setting out to build a conglomerate, serious efforts are still required of you.

What this means is that once you’ve made up your mind to own a home business, you’re going to devote time and other resources to nurture the business until it takes off. And even after it has taken off, you’ll still have to keep doing what you are doing, depending on the level of success you desire. But you must make determined efforts to begin with.

In network marketing for example, nothing meaningful can be achieved by a distributor who does not talk to people on a regular basis. Of course there are various ways this can be done—through emails, newsletters, social networks, phone calls, drop cards, seminars, physical contacts, etc.

The list is almost endless. And you the marketer or distributor can choose the combination that suits your personality the most. But one thing is certain: you must promote your business opportunity in some ways on a regular business.

That way, you’ll be able to sell the products, and above all get some who’ll join as downlines. Products and downlines bring in money in the form of various commissions. But only downlines guarantee the future growth and expansion of your MLM business. The more people you’re able to recruit, the faster and bigger your business will grow. That’s why you need to make efforts each day to bring in more people into your team.

Your daily efforts must also include knowledge acquisition. You must stay up to date with happenings in your business segment. This will equip you with the latest methods of promoting the business as well as valuable information to address the needs of your downlines and prospects.

We can go on and on, but the bottom line is that if you want to see your MLM business grow at a deeper level, you must make some efforts everyday.

5 Keys to Success In MLM Prospecting

Unless you would rather be a consumer rather than a distributor of MLM products, Prospecting is one activity you just cannot overlook. The people who go on to become very successful in network marketing are usually those who have mastered the art of prospecting.

Prospecting creates a steady flow of leads for your MLM business. Leads in turn create customers and downlines, two crucial elements in MLM success. Simply, prospecting is an indicator of how committed you are to your network marketing business. To succeed in MLM, you first have to succeed in prospecting.

Here are Five keys to help you succeed in MLM prospecting

Put The People First: in other words, while advertising your MLM business opportunity to a prospect, try and project more of what the prospect stands to gain if he or she joins.

Highlight how the business will improve their lives, not yours. Everybody wants to have the famous WIIFM question answered before they accept a business proposal (WIIFM=what’s in it for me?).

Be A Leader, Or Act Like A One: most persons coming into network marketing for the first time realize—correctly—that they’ll need someone to guide them on the path to success. Project yourself as such a person. Even if at the moment you have no huge earnings to flaunt, at least you should demonstrate a depth of knowledge of the business.

Let your prospects rest assure that you have answers to any question they may have concerning the MLM company and business opportunity. Be the first person they’ll come to when they need clarifications. When they do make up their minds to join the business, you’ll also be the first person they’ll consider.

Prepare Your Mind For Rejections: it doesn’t matter whether you’re an MLM newcomer or a veteran, some persons will just not accept your proposals. So most times it’s not really your fault. This thought could be very liberating for you as it enables you to focus on your efforts rather than on the responses you’re getting.

Just bear in mind that to some extent, MLM is a game of numbers—averages. Considering that some prospects will turn you down, you should talk to as many persons as possible so that the law of averages will favor you in the end.

Fight Negative Emotions: unless you put your emotions under check, you will not do well in prospecting or any other aspect of network marketing. Keeping your emotions under check involves fighting feelings of discouragement and disillusion.

Yes, success may not come as fast as you expected it. So you need to have strong reasons why you just cannot quit, and keep on promoting your opportunity to as many prospects as your energy can carry you.

Don’t Be Too Pushy: while you have to prospect with conviction and enthusiasm, avoid desperate attempt to win over someone who’s obviously not interested.

The danger is that when you push too much, the prospects conclude that the opportunity will benefit you more than them. That only serves to make them all the more skeptical!

If you go about your prospecting activity with these tips in mind, chances are that you’ll continue to have a steady flow of quality leads that will help your MLM business to grow.

Many people believe they cannot build a successful Network Marketing or Direct Selling Business due to the present state of the economy. But when you take a look at the performance of most network marketing and direct sales companies, you may see a reason to challenge that mindset.

The truth really is that Network Marketing also called “Direct Selling ” is one of the few recession-proof businesses out there. In reality, network marketing and the economy are not fair-weather friends.

Even in a good economy there always people who are looking for ways to better themselves financially or create more time freedom for themselves and their families. For most of these persons, network marketing has often provided the opportunity.

So this business thrives under all economic conditions. But if anything, network marketing performs even better during economic downturns.

The reason is that when the national economy is in bad shape, people are typically laid off from jobs. For those who do keep their jobs, incomes usually stagnate or are reduced. Needless to say that job opportunities inevitably become very slim.

What all this mean is that individuals are going to look for ways to make ends meet. And network marketing is usually one of the first options. And for good reasons.

One reason this business thrives even in bad economy is that people who are laid off from jobs and those who could not get one would typically want to get into a business of their own in an industry that takes small financial investment as compared with traditional business start ups or franchises.

And since a network marketing business can be run from home without a huge amount of capital, what it means is that an ordinary person can get started in their own business with relatively little money. In addition you can work your own hours, from home.

Again, most persons who wouldn’t pay attention to a network marketer when the economy is good may find themselves giving serious thoughts to MLM proposals in bad economy.

So prospecting becomes easier for a network marketer under a bad economy. That is indeed one reason MLM typically trumps all other business during recession.

In network marketing, many different types of products are sold, meaning you can always find your niche as a marketer. In these days there so many network marketing and direct sales companies to choose from. In recent years, some of the most successful ones are found in the liquid nutritional supplement sector.

This is understandable considering that people are now more interested in health and wellness than ever before. As a result, health and wellness products have become a big part of the MLM industry.

Since the companies themselves offer different compensation and growth paths, you have the option to choose the one whose compensation plan suits you the most.

So yes, network marketing companies are thriving worldwide and making people rich with generous compensations and commissions. Most persons have begun to realize their life dreams as a result of their involvement with network marketing. In turn, their success stories inspire others to give serious thoughts to this type of business.

But is success in this business automatic? That is another matter entirely. But let’s quickly say here that like everything else, success in Network Marketing Requires Knowledge And Dedication. But the rewards are well worth it.

their big break.

But, people need our support the most before
they get their breakthrough. They need us to look past their
faults and failures and see their potential.

Most times, people in you Business just need a little “push” of encouragement to keep them moving forward. We should always put ourselves in the other person’s shoes and see things from their perspective. You may have some good advice that could save them a lot of heartache and pain. Don’t keep it to yourself.

Pick up the phone. Help them win.

Maybe you excelled in a college course that they’re
struggling in.Don’t sit back and think, “Too bad. They’ve
got to learn it the hard way.”

No, you are the hands and feet of Jesus. When you help
others rise higher, you are fulfilling His mission. Today,

Invest life in others, see their potential, and together,
you’ll rise higher into the blessing

people in my life. Thank You for equipping me to help others
rise higher. Reveal to me the potential You have deposited
in the people around me and show me ways to help them so we
can win at life together. In Your Name.

The Power of Positive Thinking

Not everyone believes in the power of positive thinking. Some say it’s just a lot of hocus pocus, neither here nor there. Even among those who believe that positive thinking has power, a lot do not know how to use it. Still, the subject continues to command a lot of attention in modern discusses.

More books are being written about the subject now than ever before, in addition to lectures and seminars. Positive thinking is no doubt gaining in popularity. It must surely be worth your while to give it serious thoughts.

Positive thinking is a mental outlook that sees good in every situation. The positive thinker only admits to their mind thoughts, words, and mental images that are conducive to growth and personal success.

It is a mental disposition whereby the thinker decidedly expects good and favorable outcome from his endeavors. A positive mind anticipates happiness, good health, successful business dealings, and satisfaction.

The major thing I want to share with you here is that this mental attitude has a way of making any of these expectations to come true for a person. It is an undeniable fact that the way we approach issues largely depends on how we judge the likely outcome of the issue.

A single lady who’s in a relationship that she believes isn’t heading anywhere will naturally handle such a relationship without seriousness. And predictably the relationship will soon wither away. It is often said that what the mind expects, it finds.

There is this story of two young women who applied for a job. We’ll call them Ruth and Ann. They are both equally educated to the level required by the firm. But Ruth suffers from low self-esteem and never sees anything good about herself. And she has a negative attitude toward things generally.

This she carried into the job application. Even before the job interview, she had already concluded that other applicants were better qualified than her, and that there was no way she would get the job.

Her preparation for the job interview reflected this mindset. She woke up late, and then discovered that the dress she planned to wear had stains—the others were not ironed. She wore one of the scruffy dresses and went for the interview anyway.

Again she answered the interview questions with an I-know-you’ve-rejected-me attitude. Expectedly she didn’t get the job. But where did the failure originate? In her mind!
Contrast that with Ann who also is qualified for the job. Gomez believed she stood as much chance as everyone else, and that with a little bit of extra efforts she might even have an edge over the other applicants. And she set out to do just that.

She got her clothes ready the day before the interview, went to bed a little earlier, and visualized the interview questions and her possible answers. She got to the venue before the scheduled time.

She already imagined herself impressing the interview panel. And that she did and got the job. Again, where did the final outcome start? In her mind!

This story should also serve to inform opponents of positive thinking that the concept doesn’t really encourage wishful thinking and daydreaming. Far from it: What positive thinking does is to provide us with mental energy to work in the direction of the positive things we visualize for ourselves.

The opposite is also true if we allow our minds to visualize only negative outcomes. So either way, human thoughts have power.
Which way would you use your mental powers?

Are you willing to change the way you think and allow the power of positive thoughts to shape your life for positive outcomes? That’s a choice we all must make.
