Reactive Mode or Productive Mode with the Michael Thornley Organisation

Reactive Mode or Productive Mode

Reactive Mode or Productive Mode. Sharing some great advice from my business partner and mentor Matt Lloyd

 

“One of the marks of successful people is they are action oriented. One of the marks of average people is they are talk oriented.”

~ Brian Tracy

Hey,

I’ll give you a quick productivity tip for today.

There’s 2 modes you can be in throughout your day when you’re working on your business.

You can be in reactive mode Or productive mode.

Reactive mode means you’re constantly consuming information, and then responding to it.  It could be emails.  Messages on Facebook or Instagram.  Skype.  A Youtube video. The information could be from staff.  Or from other marketers, trying to get you to buy their stuff.

There’s always going to be a portion of your day devoted to reactive tasks.  You can’t build a big business without giving your attention to new information and responding to it.

But, most people struggling to get their business off the ground are spending waaayyy too much time on reactive tasks.

The ones making no money are usually spending over 95% of their time just reacting.

On the other hand, the top 5% of revenue producing business’s in any industry are being run by people who flip those numbers on their head. They are spending 95% of their time creating new material.

New products with New roles to fill. Many New processes.  New ads and New sales copy.  Also New email marketing and follow-up videos.  New company’s. They are producers.  That’s why they get paid the big bucks.

Most of the time, I myself am a producer.

However, when I started out in business, that was not the case. Pre-2008, I’d spent more than the last decade in the education system getting taught to study and remember new information… not necessarily to apply that information.

I naturally spent all my time reading emails, watching videos, reading books and magazines, and watching from the sidelines what everyone else was doing.

I’d justify this obsessive consumption of other people’s material as important ‘learning time’ – but the truth is, I’d not yet learned the most important lesson for a new entrepreneur.

And that lesson is:

There’s absolutely no substitute for trying a lot of different things, having most of it fail, but learning through direct experience the few things which actually work.

It took me the better part of 2 years to really grasp this lesson.  Finally it got to a point where I was so sick to death of not making money, and not having a successful business, that I started to focus more on producing.

And so I started doing more videos.  I started doing more webinars.  And I started actually promoting and selling every single day.

I stopped consuming everyone else’s material, and started creating my own.

The sooner you experience this epiphany for yourself, the better.

Talk soon!

Desbloquea tu mente millonaria

Desbloquea tu mente millonaria

Hola

Hoy quiero hablarte sobre cómo debes pensar para empezar a hacer seis cifras al año en línea.

Sí, piensa.

Porque hay una gran diferencia entre la mentalidad de un empleado que hace, digamos, 50,000 dólares al año, y un empresario que hace esa misma cantidad cada mes.

Hay una diferencia entre alguien que está feliz de entrar y hacer su 9-a-5, y alguien que hace seis cifras al año trabajando sólo 4 horas al día.

Y hay una diferencia gigantesca entre alguien que toma el control de su vida y alguien que deja a su jefe para decidir.

Creo que mucho de eso se reduce a la mentalidad.

Supongamos que eso es cierto, que su mentalidad ha estado reteniéndolo de vuelta del éxito … ¿cómo entonces usted va sobre substituir una mentalidad del empleado con un nuevo cerebro del empresario?

Quiero hacer dos sugerencias hoy.

La primera es la siguiente:
Si realmente desea convertirse en un empresario exitoso, debe reconocer que el “dólar se detiene con usted”.

Usted es responsable de su fracaso y éxito. Para tus buenos meses y tus malos. Para su récord de cheques de comisión y por los tiempos que está roto.

No es su jefe, su familia o sus amigos que es responsable de su éxito. Todo depende de ti.

Sin un jefe, no hay nadie que te obligue a trabajar. Para levantarse temprano en la mañana, o para poner en horas de la noche.

No hay consecuencias si no logras tu meta. Quiero decir, no te despedirás, ¿verdad?

Sonidos asustadizos, pero hay también una perspectiva magnífica a esta nueva manera de pensar.

Su negocio florecerá en línea con sus esfuerzos. Cuando usted trabaja duro – e inteligente – usted ganará la manera más dinero que cualquier trabajo a tiempo completo, y usted tendrá la libertad de ir junto con.

Por lo tanto, asumir la responsabilidad de sus esfuerzos y tiempo. Pronto serás recompensado por cada minuto que pongas.

Así que ese es mi primer consejo. La segunda es la siguiente:
Rodéate de materiales empresariales y deja de leer lo mismo que los empleados leen.

En su lugar, lea lo que los empresarios y la gente exitosa leer. Leer libros de negocios. Libros sobre el auto-crecimiento.

Lea acerca de cómo hacer una vida a tiempo completo con una conexión wi-fi y las ventanas viejas portátil …

Haga clic aquí!

Omitir mensajes de Facebook, revistas basura, novelas románticas y otras cosas que te mantendrán pobre.

Por supuesto, hay un lugar para el entretenimiento, pero cuanto más tiempo se puede poner en la lectura de las cosas correctas, más rápido su mente se transformará en la de un empresario. Y por más difícil que sea creer, dejarás de disfrutar de pasar tiempo en cosas que no te acercan a tus metas.
Habla pronto.

Empezar hoy!

Recoge una copia de este libro. Es sólo $ 3 y es una gran cartilla sobre la creación de una mentalidad empresarial y hacer un ingreso de seis cifras en línea.

Atentamente

The Top-three skills every business owner needs for long-term success

The Top-three skills every business owner needs for long-term success

 

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you’ll need to master different skills during   your career.

Here are the top-three skills every business owner needs for long-term success…

 1. The top skill for Beginners

If you’re a brand new entrepreneur—right from the very start— the number one most   important skill to develop is sales.

Most people are afraid of selling, so they just don’t do it. And that’s why most people quit   the business, because they never make any sales.

Selling is THE MOST important skill in business. And when you’re beginning as an   entrepreneur, it’s vital for you to learn how to influence people. And learn how to sell.

 2. The top skill for Veterans

You will constantly face challenges along your journey, but you need to stick with your   goals no matter what. That’s why resilience is one of the strongest traits you could   possibly  have.

There will be times when you think the problems will just never end, and that’s actually   true—the problems will never end.

The problems will keep coming even when you start making the “big” money. So you
need to develop broad shoulders to survive in affiliate marketing.

 3. The top skill for Scaling your business

The most important skill you need to scale your business is being good at promoting your   products.

The most successful affiliates I’ve ever known are always promoting. They won’t go to bed   at night unless they send an email to their list. And they make over a million a year.

Most business owners get bogged down with all the management activities, and they   never scale. To free up your time, hire a staff to handle your office work, so you can   maintain your primary role of promoting the products.

It’s very important that you never lose the skill of being the main promoter of your   company. And you’ll be able to scale your business further than you ever thought.

And if you want to cut your learning curve even faster, I have a good opportunity for you…

I’m talking about the Internet’s only automatic system that deposits $1,250, $3,300,   $9,000, even $18,000 directly into your bank account.

The system was created by 22-year-old Steven Bransfield, who used this exact system to   pocket $1,376,421.03 in just two years.

And he’s personally helped four people make over six-figures in the past 12 months. You   can learn this system too.

With this unique training, you’ll get the all the tools you need to make six-figures a year   online for the rest of your life.

Steven recently made a free video that explains how he went from zero-to-millionaire in   just two years.

It’s time to get stuff done!

It’s time to get stuff done!

It’s time to get things done! Sharing the thoughts of my friend Catriona Pollard, something that I know we can all relate to!…  Michael
Laptop-Lifestyle Michael-Thornley

 

“I have been in several situations lately where I have been asked how I manage to get so much done.

The truth is there was a time a few weeks back where I came into the office and said to my most trusted team member that I wasn’t coping. I had said yes to too many things – speaking gigs, gallery openings, exhibitions, mentoring, business operations tasks, writing, organising a trip overseas… and I could go on and on.

I was dealing with so much stress that I was waking up at 3am every morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. Which was good in one way as it meant I had more time to get stuff done. But obviously, not healthy.

Lists are my saviour

Jo, who has worked with me for a long time and knows how my brain works, said “Let me get my notepad”. She sat with me and I told her everything I had to do. Three pages of items later, she put them in order, and even typed up an action plan (similar to how we do client work).

I slept through to 5am that night…because I had some order to the chaos and a plan of attack. And you know what…I’ve nearly ticked everything off my list! Such a great feeling.

 

Ditch faffing

You know faffing…taking ages to make a decision or finish things off. I enjoy being highly focused, and often set myself false deadlines to eliminate faffing. Although, I find myself faffing about certain things…my inbox is currently sitting at 3,792 unread emails.

 

Use your time wisely

My business is run with military precision. We have procedures for everything. It’s structured in a way so time isn’t wasted. Also I maximise my effort and time. For example, all of the articles I write aren’t just used once in an email to you. They are used multiple times across every social media platform, sent to journalists, uploaded to news sites and then they are used in an ongoing basis as evergreen blog content.

I like to be busy.

I’m happier when I’m doing and achieving stuff. But I also need to have downtime, whether that’s catching up with the people that make me feel good, spending the afternoon at the day spa or walking in the bush. My mantra during these times is be still and let the beauty emerge.

Here’s to seeing you in the spotlight.”

Personal income leveled out in 2015, 2016… 2017?

Personal income leveled out in 2015, 2016… 2017? 

Personal income. This raises the income thermostat, STAT!

I think the majority of the masses deal with this… If you’re ACCLIMATED to living paycheck to paycheck, then no matter how much you make, you will keep living paycheck to paycheck. If you’re income is under $77K a year, it’ll hover around that income mark on average. If you’re accustomed to having $5k in savings, you’ll probably keep about just that in your savings account…

You ever experienced this?

If we want to INCREASE our INCOME, we need to set the income thermostat higher to where our ideal income is our new standard. Making sense?

Here’s what will help…

Wealth is an ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. NOT an acquirement.

It’s an AWARENESS that you can fill-up on DAILY. Do you not have a wealth, or abundance, or MORE Oxygen than you need right now?Is there not a wealth or abundance of SUNLIGHT at your disposal every day? See…

It’s all about this awareness of the wealth all around you, and recognizing that wealth doesn’t equal money, and money doesn’t equal wealth!

The big AHA in today’s note from all this? Wealth Is Not A By-Product Of Money. Money Is A By-Product Of Wealth.

Once you truly GET this, and you see that income isn’t in any way connected to your IDETITY, then the goal of actually producing ANY INCOME you DESIRE becomes a game. Fun. Yes… A GAME! YES, FUN!

Different from the way most people are living, huh?

And there’s no more FUN way to play this game than to see BIG SALES popping in to your accounts every week.

Not sure if this is for you or not?

Some are having fun, rolling in an average of up to $5k to $10K months. Others are having a blast bringing in up to $100K a month…

What’s your target? Ready for some fun?

===> Yes! I’m ready to take my current wealth around me and have FUN rolling in the income I DESIRE RIGHT NOW!

$1000 paydays can be easy or hard… (which will you pick?)

$1000 paydays can be easy or hard… (which will you pick?) 

This provides income breakthroughs!

  Hi
If you’ve been online searching for opportunities, trying a few things out… And if it’s been   longer than 30-60 days…

  You could begin to feel like this business is like pushing a square 1-ton stone uphill…

  …Blindfolded.

  …On a rainy day.

  …Feet slipping every step.

You feeling me?

  Here’s a simple yet powerful Q I’d love for you to explore: Why Not Start A Different      Business Model That’s Like Pushing A Round Tire Downhill?! 

  The uphill slog was trying to eke out $300 and up paydays with low $7 to
$97 commission sales…

  700 bucks a month or so isn’t BAD. Yet it’s not “freedom money”. Especially when it’s not    consistent income I can bank on. Plus I had the added stress of having the entire funnel    ALL ON ME to set-up and run and provide support and maintenance over…

  Once I discovered how to generate up to $1k, $5k, $10k commissions,    WITHOUT having to do too much, that changed the entire game! Simple shifts like this,  once made, can make all the difference between struggle and the much EASIER path to  success.

 Ready to trade in the uphill push for another path?

 ===> Yes! I’m ready to shift to high ticket commissions and take the easier path to life  changing commissions…

 PS. Once you’re through the 21 Steps, you’ll see how easy and fun this lucrative  business model can be for you! Sure, you still have to “push” even downhill to make this  work, but it’s soooo much easier than trying to grind uphill. 😊

McDonalds – Mr Kroc’s wisdom

Hey,

When Ray Kroc started building the McDonald’s empire in 1956, he never thought of himself as being in the hamburger business.

To him, it was not the hamburgers which were his product; it was the systems he created that would sell
the hamburgers.

These systems (or what you might call the ‘business blueprint’) consisted of detailed procedures, duplicatable processes, and
accompanying training that made running the McDonalds business as easy as possible.

That doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed success with a McDonalds franchise, but it does mean you have a much higher likelihood of
succeeding than if you try to start a hamburger business yourself from scratch.

Today, if you want to buy a McDonalds you’re looking at an investment of close to $1m or more, depending on where it’s located.

And so far, a lot of people have bought in.

Did you know there’s over 30,000 McDonalds outlets around the world today? (at close to $1m each, you do the math on that)

Many are in America, but they’re also all over Asia, Europe, Australia…

In fact, the famous Golden arches logo is more recognized across the planet than the symbol of christ!

When you think about it, McDonalds as a company are in the high-ticket sales business.

Each time they sell a unit, they’re bringing in close to 7 figures.

In the online marketing world, you can also be in the high-ticket sales business.

And you should be too.

It’s far easier to find a few high-paying customers to create an annual 6 figure per year income, than trying to sell dirt cheap products for
$10 or less to the masses.

Personally, I’d rather make $10,000 from making one sale online, instead of trying to find 1,000 people who will pay $10 for an ebook for the same amount of money.

Now is it harder to get a $10,000 sale than a $10 sale?

Of course it is.

But is it 1,000 times harder?

Not even close.

As long as you have the right system and training in place, getting paid up to $10,000 on each deal you do is very doable.

And if you’d like to learn how, watch this short video:

Once you get started, you’ll be assigned your own personal coach who’ll show you everything you need to know.
