Fortune-An encounter with inspiration

A man is fortunate if he encounters living examples of vice, as well as of virtue, to inspire him.-H.G. Bohn

Shortcomings mold and shape the direction of our lives tangling our mind and throwing us into a world winds.  Peaking in the window of time opened an encounter of defeat mistrust, and hopelessness while dancing to the music of sorrow, and regret. Once the act has completed hopelessness and mistrust bowing before your eyes awaiting an applause the standing ovation, rendered to these unfortunate acts is meaningless and of no value.  The encounter leaves a spellbound affect staining the thoughts of man.  Rest assures the vice that corrupts can be reset to a fortunate encounter that changes the course and direction of life.

How to change encounters of moral failing into moral excellence

  1. Standards
  2. Ethical principles
  3. Rectitude

 

Developing quality conduct that inspires and motivates are the foundation for building standards of living.  Ethical principles are also foundational.  Francois de La Rochefoucauld suggested, “Nothing is as infectious as example” (p. 294).  If the standard of living is motivated by appropriate conduct, you image the fun we all would have.  But as life would have it many are motivated by dishonesty, and practices that involve destroying others on a daily basis.  It takes energy to practice unethical principles one would conclude this type of motivation could cause fatigue.  Motivations give energy regardless if it is positive or negative.  It is helpful when we are motivated by encounters that improve and change our lives.

Talmud suggest, “Don’t use the conduct of a fool as a precedent” (p. 295). Although this is a mainstream Judaism it is a foundational principle all can use.  It is important to inspire and motivate by examples.  Living by standards, ethical principle and avoiding known mistakes will help.  Business requires ethical principle and standards that support honesty. Businesses that function under false pretenses are unethical.  Dishonest tactics to promote business is also unethical.  Quality and high excellence are motivating characteristics that promote business. Is the fortune cookie you open directing the principles of life? Has Fortune 500 provided you with tips on business ethics and principles?

Stand on the encounter that inspires and takes your business to the top.

Discovery Cards-Discovering things we can’t do

Sometimes it is more important to discover what we cannot do, than what we can do-Lin Yutang

Discovery Cards, which one have you turned over today. Imagine a new task, one you have not performed before, you discover the challenge.  Your mission is to develop a new product; you lean back in your chair and ponder in your mind how to complete the mission. Thoughts begin to race quickly in your mind.  I have no knowledge on this subject, it looks very difficult, perhaps I had better choose another mission there is no way this can be done. You pick up the phone call a friend there is no answer.  As you leave a message a discovery clicks on in your brain and you begin working vigorously to complete the mission.

You’ve just stepped out of the twilight zone in to an interest zone.  The interest zone causes you to engage in something new. The brain begins to twist and turn throwing out fast ideas.  These ideas are coming so fast they must be written down.  Margaret Fontey suggests “The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously.  The first is imperative, and the second is disastrous” (p.345). Going into the interest zone you’ll find exciting new ideas that will help you develop and grow.  The discovery comes in the interest zone.  Trying new methods and strategies keeps your business alive, and thriving.

I spoke with a prospect earlier in the week, Jewelry is the prospects business. After our talk the prospect discovered the concept of conversion. This simple concept is not unknown to MLM networkers.  Internet marketers are discovering new ways to market their products and services every day.  I use it in my primary business. When my potential prospect does not raise their hands, I offer a free gift, a gift they can use too.  I’ve discovered that network marketing is jumping into an interest zone.  There are many ideas, tools and methods to learn. Why build only on what you know? Discover what is unknown and explore something new. This will keep your business out front. I like to leave you with this quote from Frank Lloyd Wright, “I know the price of success: dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen” (p.434).
