Notebook: 001

Mr. Carlos

These are my notes from reading or listening to a book

The Magic of Part-Time 
Jim Rohn 

Personal Philosophy 
Age 25 discovery of a unique product. Passed down by family. The payoff was so incredible. Pay attention to good nutrition. What you believe in.

Profits are better than wages. Once you understand that you will be rich. 25 and broke. To much month at the end of the money. Wages make you a living, profits make you a fortune.

Communism: Capitalism was a company that oppresses its workers. Capital belongs to the state not the people. People are too dumb and stupid to know what to do with capitalism. Devastated every country they touched.

A little ingenuity takes you a long way. Kids should have 2 bikes, one to ride and one to rent. We teach capital belongs in the hands of the people.

You can start this business part time. I am working full time on my job and part time on my fortune. I found a way to make a fortune. Wake up to work on your fortune. Won’t be long until I am working full time on my fortune.

First goal: Part time I wanted profits to equal the wage of my full time. Now you can work on profits. Concentrate on the 10-15 hours a week. Earn as much part time as you do full time. Found a way part time to work on my fortune and make as much money as my full time job.

Second goal: Make twice as much money part time working on my fortune as I was full time working on my job. An invitation that won’t quit. Found a way part time to earn twice as much money as my full time job.

I didn’t want to go full time. I didn’t want to give up my electrifying story. I hung on for too long. Now you can imagine the thrill and excitement to work full time on fortune.

$1,000 extra a month changes a persons fortune. I have a little part time thing going. Everyone wants to hear your story. The change of lifestyle changes your life. The magic of part time gives you a classic invitation to look at what you are doing. I wish I would have learned them in high school.

It’s not what happens that determines your life future it’s what you do about what happens. All of us are in a little sail boat. It is not the blowing of the wind that determines your destination it is the set of the sail. The same wind blows on us all. Disaster, opportunity, social, political, the difference of arrival is the set of the sail. Learning is about how to set a better sail this year than last year. My philosophy changed. Correcting the errors of the past and pick up some new disciplines for the future. Anybody can do that.

If you need to make some changes. You can start today. So next two years are drastically different than the last two. Anybody who wishes to can. If you wish to. It is called opportunity. If you don’t know you can change some people don’t make much change. They never made the discovery. Anybody can live anyway they choose. You can make the next three years completely different than the last three. The next 10 years are gonna be about the last 10.

Opportunity mixed with difficulty. After expansion comes recession. After winter comes spring. You know what to anticipate.

For things to change you have to change. Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom. You can’t excel without challenge.

You can do the most remarkable things no matter what happens. The law of average. If you do something often enough a ratio will appear. Batting average. 1 out of 10. Once a ratio starts it tends to continue. Now you can compete.

I wish for you to lose. You learn more from losing than you do by winning. When I am new, I make up in numbers what I lack in skill. Anybody that’s ambitions, with a little ingenuity. Law of averages improves. 2 out of 10. You are getting better. Bat .300 in baseball you are a star. You don’t have to bat 1.000 to be successful. 3 out 10 is sufficient to make you rich. Just come to the meeting and be one of the 7. How come you never picked up the phone a year ago.

The law of sowing and reaping. The sower is ambitious. He had excellent seed. The first part of the seed fall by the wayside. The birds get it. I wonder why John didn’t make it, the birds! Somebody (birds) stole it. Two options, number one is chase birds. You leave the field. It will distract from your future not add. It’s just one of those things. Isn’t that interesting, when things are a little disappointing. He promised me but I know it was the birds. The sower kept on sowing. There are not enough birds. There are only 9 or 10 miserable people in the whole world. They move around a lot. You can handle that. Some seed falls on rocky soil. The plant starts to grow, but the first hot day it wither and dies. Doesn’t show up at the second meeting. The hot weather is gonna get some. What can you do? Isn’t that interesting. Just let that happen. The answer is in the deal. Some don’t stay. You can’t solve it. He kept on sowing. He had to discipline his disappointment. In the normal course of things it’s the way it goes. Now the seed falls on thorny ground. It grows a little and the thorns choke it to death. It is little somethings. People let little things cheat them out of big opportunities. It’s just the way it is. The sower keeps sowing the seed. Finally the seed falls on good ground (it always will). If you share a good idea long enough. Some of the good ground did 30%, some did 60%, some did 100%. It’s just the way it is. Let the 30’s do 30. Let each do to the best of their abilities.

Getting a customer, making a sale. The first skill learned that changed my life. It’s about sharing. Share something you’ve discovered with someone else. It multiplied my income by five. Lay the foundation for an entrepreneurial career.

Recruiting the second skill. Introduce the business opportunities, give a good invitation, formal and informal presentation, following up. Take care of it like a parent. Nourish it like a mother, protect like a father. Being a sponsor is being a bridge. From not knowing to knowing. Helping people crossing the bridge. You’ve got the answers. You assure them it is possible. This art pays big money. The secret to wealth and fortune. How can we achieve greatness? Find a way to serve the many. Service to many leads to greatness. If you help people with problems yours will disappear.

Serve as many people as you would like. You can affect the lives of thousands of people. If you affect a few the pay is accordingly. Don’t ask what others can do for you, ask what you can do for others. What can I do for the people? If you help enough people get what they want you can have everything you want.

Organizing was the third skill. Getting others to work together magic occurs. If two or three agree on a common purpose nothing is impossible. Best challenge in the world. Let’s go do it. The power is immense when you get people to work together. Shared testimonials is powerful.

Promotion was the fourth skill. Recognize those around you. Come up with promotions. Reward people for small steps. Make it worth their while. Ingenuity is what works magic. Figuring out a way. Dream up something so someone has a little more objective to go for it than on their own. We all need to belong to something bigger than ourselves.

Communication was the fifth skill. Opened my mouth and nothing came out. I did it once, I did it again. Then again, again, and again. Practice, practice, practice. How to affect other people with words. Don’t be lazy in language.

Train and teach. Train how the business works. Teaching people about life. The ability to inspire. Inspire people to look up. If you can do it, I can do it. Get people to see themselves as they are. Don’t leave them in the mess. Paint a better picture with a couple more changes. Get people to see themselves in the future. Here is what you can become. To help others see themselves better than they are. Transport them past their mistakes to see the person they can become.

Learn to work with the people who deserve it not those who need it. If you plant you will reap. Respond to the people who deserve it. You move toward me, I’ll move towards you. Teach people how to deserve your attention. You don’t step I don’t step. You try, I try.

Learn to group not by individual. Group is less confrontational. Help a thousand, but you can’t carry three on your back. Someday you have to try to walk.

Don’t expect the pear tree to bear apples. You cannot change people, but they can change themselves. Capital in this business isn’t what matters. It’s not the money that buys you a future its the skills. Money and no skills you are still poor. No ambition, no courage you are broke. What mattered was somebody’s willingness. Let me show you how to do it without any money. You can sell and buy. I don’t have to wait till it gets there to sell it.

1. Greatest value in life is living a good life: productivity, good friends, spirituality, study, practice, and teach.
2. Don’t miss anything. Don’t miss the performance, the movie, the game. Don’t miss the songs that nourish the soul. Remember the words that reflect the experience. Don’t miss the small things or the big things. If you live well, you will earn well.
3. The inner circle. If you take care of them they will take care of you. If the husband walks out of the house and feels the imprint of his wife all day he is invincible. Ask for God’s help.
4. We have a chance as humans beings to participate in the miracle process. Everyday as often as you like. If you come along at the right time, your information will encourage someone to change their life.
