The Gateway to Your Business Success

Gateway to Business SucessYour ability to focus, plan, feel or do anything is intimately tied to the mix of five different types of brainwaves your brain is producing at any given moment in time. Your brain produces multiple brainwaves simultaneously, but you are at your best when your brainwaves are perfectly aligned with what you are doing. But here’s the problem: Our over-thinking, over-stressed culture forces our brains to stay in the beta wave pattern more than our brains were meant to.

Let’s take a closer look at the five different types of brainwaves so you can more fully understand why it’s a problem when Beta Waves dominate.

Brain Entrainment: What Are You Asking Your Brain For?

Brain Entrainment

If you want to program your brain for business success, you need to understand the brain’s reticular activation system. It’s part of the brain entrainment process. Think of how Google’s search engines search the Internet for whatever you ask it to. You enter a subject, a name, a topic and wham in seconds you have hundreds if not thousands of options to choose from on the topic you entered.

Well, that’s pretty impressive right? I don’t think so.

Your reticular activation system is a network-like group of non-conscious brain cells that that can pick up the information you want and need at speeds that are 800 times faster that what you can consciously see or hear. These non-conscious impulses travel at over 100,000 mph. That is mind-boggling!

You have more than 100 billion brain cells and these in particular, can be trained to do work for you like a slave, 24/7 without you even knowing about it. Once they know what you deem important, your non-conscious will send you a message to look left or to pick up on a conversation someone 20 feet away is having about the thing that’s important to you. We’re not talking science fiction here; it’s the latest and greatest brain research.

When you learn how to “upload” your “most important goals and desires” into this part of your brain, you will be amazed at what the brain does for you and how fast. You will wonder why you didn’t learn about it long ago.

The Neural Reconditioning Process I created works on the very areas of the brain that require true understanding and immediate retraining. People who are “programmed” or “conditioned” with great information as they grow up are what we call “unconsciously competent”. They do not know why they do what they do or why they get their results. They just do it.

I had to start at the beginning:

“consciously incompetent” (didn’t know what I didn’t know) to

“consciously competent” (trying hard) to

unconsciously being competent at making money. (it’s now part of my nature)

If you want to achieve business mastery and success, it begins with brain entrainment and the neural reconditioning process. To learn more about this process, go to http://johnassaraf.com/products/

Entrepreneur or Victim?

“Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstances….Strong men believe in cause and effect.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

EntrepreneurEvery thought you form broadcasts a distinct and particular frequency, and that frequency elicits a response from the quantum universe as surely as a swinging hammer has an impact on the surface it strikes. Things don’t arbitrarily happen to you. Events in your business are the reflection of your thoughts, the echo of your own actions and the thinking behind them. In the East, this truth is reflected in the idea of Karma, and in the West, the Golden Rule. The core of this principle is this—You are at cause in your life and your business.

For many people, this is a challenging principle because it puts you squarely in the driver’s seat. Embracing this principle means you no longer have the luxury of blaming other people or external circumstances for the things that happen in your life.

Here is the flip side of that equation: Embracing this principle also means you have far more capacity to create the events and circumstances in your life than you have ever imagined possible.

When we don’t recognize this principle operating in our lives, it’s easy to start seeing ourselves as being the effect of those events. Rather than seeing that we are making things happen, we start to believe that things are simply happening to us. This easily leads to what is often called victim mentality.

If you are someone who is growing a massively successful business, there is no place for victim mentality in your life. The two states of mind—victim thinking and entrepreneurship—are 100 percent incompatible.

The word entrepreneur derives from the French word that refers to the source of the event, the one who initiates. Building and growing a successful business requires a commitment to being at cause, not at effect.

There are many things you need to know to successfully play the game of business. A great many of them you can learn as you go, and a great many skills and fields of expertise you can bring into your business by hiring or partnering with people who possess them.

But there is one skill you must have yourself, and it is a single most important skill of any successful businessperson, the one without which success is impossible: You must be practiced at creating the thoughts that will serve your business.

Creating a clear business vision is the critical first step to your success, but it’s just that: the first step. No matter how crystal clear it is, simply having a goal doesn’t make it happen. If you want to create financial freedom for yourself, five key elements have to be in place.

The Five Musts are:

  1. You must find something that stirs your soul.
  2. You must become excellent at it.
  3. You must recondition your mind to believe you can have it and achieve it.
  4. You must understand how to make money at it.
  5. You must take daily action.

The Answer for you: The right thoughts, held clearly and resolutely, can build your dream business.

Give Life to Your Dream Business

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” —James Allen

LightTo create your successful business, you need to start with the part nobody else sees, the hidden part of your iceberg—your vision. The seed of your business is the vision. People tend to be focused on the how, thinking that is where the answer lies, but it’s not. Yes, eventually you need to learn all sorts of “hows” crucial to the success of your business. But the real key to building your dream business lies in the clarity and strength of the idea—the seed.

That is why “more capital” is rarely the answer to business start-up challenges. People often believe that lack of funding is one of a new business’s major problems. It’s not. In the same way that air, water and sunlight are not hard to find, financing is not all that hard to find—if you have a compelling and clearly viable idea and strategic plan for growth.

The world around you is absolutely flooded with money, ready to flow toward you and nourish your sprouting business. Just when we think resources are dwindling, we find new resources that can achieve the same things.

Develop your vision.

The way the right note, sung clearly and loudly enough, can cause a tuning fork to vibrate and even shatter glass, is the same way the right thought, held clearly and strongly enough, can cause events in the physical world to happen. A single thought, held clearly and firmly can defeat an empire, as Gandhi demonstrated. And the right thoughts—held clearly and resolutely can build your dream business.

 

Create the seed of your business with great precision and clarity. This is the groundwork for every successful business that has ever been and ever will be. A vaguely formed, ambiguous seed will never sprout or take route. For a seed to flourish, it must be viable.

o   Write down the vision of your idea with specifics.

o   Make sure your vision is clear and strong.

o Figuring out the “how” comes after the vision and the decision. The How will always come after the What, when your Why is big enough.

 

Be patient.

Nature takes time to work, and so will the seed of your business. It’s called the Law of Gestation. A carrot seed takes about 70 days from the time you plant it until the time you have a fully grown carrot, ready for the eating. A lamb has a gestation period of 145 days. Human beings? About 280 days.

How long will it take the world to wrap you in the right set of circumstances for your business? I don’t know. But it will take some time. And I know this: If you keep digging up those seeds after you’ve planted them, you’ll stop the process cold. Gardens don’t work that way and neither does the picture of your dream business. You have to allow an idea the time to germinate and grow, to take root and find its resources in its own time. Let go of impatience.

 

Start putting your trust in your own resourcefulness and in the universe around you. The universe is ready to give you everything you want, once you are clear on what it is and patient enough to let it do its work.

 

Nothing is limited—not resources or anything else. You can only limit yourself in your mind.

The Answer for you: Your need the clarity and focus of a magnifying glass to create your dream business.
