How To Achieve Your Dreams and Success in 2013

2013The champagne has been popped, the fireworks have exploded, the kisses have been smooched and the celebrating has ended, which means 2013 is officially here!

Now that the New Year is upon us, the question is, have you set new goals for your business in 2013?

You’ve got a clean slate, and now is the time to make new goals to conquer over the next 365 days. If you want 2013 to be the best year you’ve ever had personally and professionally, then you’ve got to set your sights on the next big thing.

It’s important that you set new goals to provide direction, facilitate growth and to cultivate success. Your business and team members depend on direction and the success of your business, and you can’t take your business anywhere unless you know where you want to go.

Make your commitment now to yourself, your business and your family—make the choice to commit to greater things in 2013.

Once you have set your goals, the next step is to become teachable, as Andy Albright advised in his best-selling book, “8 Steps to Success.”  Being teachable is all about being willing to learn from others who are smarter than you are and from those who are where you want to go.  By doing this you will speed up your growth, learn tips and tricks known only to those who have been there, and receive constant guidance along the way.

You can begin to be teachable and successfully achieve your goals in 2013. Andy Albright will work with you step-by-step through daily videos sent directly to your inbox to provide direction, guidance and support as you work toward your dreams. In fact, it’s like Albright pops into your life to personally coach you every day for 90 days.

To get started making 2013 your best year yet, sign up for the Albright Challenge at www.albrightchallenge.com.

We’ll even send you a free gift to help remind yourself of the commitment you have made.

Now get to work and make your dreams happen!


Write it Down!

It's a dream until you write it down, and then it's a goal.If you are prone to procrastinate, keeping an organized list helps you to develop much more clarity.  Too many people are scattered in all directions.  They are late for meetings; they’re late for the airport.  They forget appointments.  They can’t find their cell phone with all their contacts, or they experience all sorts of other things because of their disorganization.  Being organized is a skill and an important one if you want to be super successful.

Getting organized means keeping lists!  Not on a scrap of paper but with a good method, whether that means in a Day-Timer, online or in your smartphone. Successful people are creatures of habit and that includes keeping track of everything.

To become successful with National Agents Alliance, you must understand success principles and live the laws of success.  This means developing habits, routines, skills and a mindset that will allow you to do all the little things the winners do every day.  If you don’t develop a system, and write things down, it’s easy to become a procrastinator.

Step six in Andy Albright’s 8 Steps to Success is “Be Teachable.”  At NAA, the top producers do a great job of teaching new agents, and these big producers are all good at being super organized.  The new agent has to be willing to listen (Step 3 in the 8 Steps) and implement the strategies that have proven successful, and profitable.

Most of our top agents plan their day the night before, and those with assistants will even leave messages for them in the evening so they both start off each day with a blueprint to follow.  With things written down, and prioritized, important tasks never get delayed or forgotten.  Most often, National Agents Alliance’s leaders list and tackle the most difficult tasks first.  Following a prioritized list makes sense, it allows you to feel like your day is productive, and if something should not get completed it won’t be the most important task of the day.

So, to make the most of your National Agents Alliance business:  Listen, learn and write it down!


Girls Can Do Anything Boys Can Do—And Be Happier!

Is that a challenge?Women have long maintained that “girls can do anything that boys can do, but better and in high heels,” and now they have more evidence to support their belief!

The Hartford Financial Services Group report found that more than 90 percent of the women entrepreneurs have vied their business as a success; while only 80 percent of men felt the same way, Entrepreneur Magazine reported.

The survey found some clues as to what may be contributing to women’s confidence in business:

  • Women are more risk-averse: The survey found that 55 percent of women viewed themselves as conservative in taking risks in their business, compared to 47 percent of men. Furthermore, 80 percent of women responded that they did not think taking more risks would make them more successful.
  • Women don’t blame the economy: Instead of focusing on the economy, women found that the increased cost of doing business was their top problem, followed by government red tape. Only 21 percent said lack of demand or customers was their top concern.
  • Women vote in favor to help their business: Eighty-nine percent of woman stated that they would vote for pro-business candidates in November, whereas only 79 percent of males would. This may be because of their increased level of empowerment at the ballot box, which makes them feel more confident they’ll have a business climate they like.

Entrepreneur Magazine also offered another suggestion as to why women are happier with their business: “Our expectations may be lower. Fewer women go into business with dreams of building an empire. Women I know consider their business a success if they can be their own boss and replace their former job income.”

Here at National Agents Alliance, we believe that in the end, its mind over matter—if you want to be successful, believe that you are!


Do You Want Your Business to be Bigger?

Bigger BusinessIn his short, but powerful book, The Prayer of Jabez Dr. Bruce Wilkinson examines the brief biblical story of Jabez who implored God:

Oh that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that your hand would be with me
and that You would keep me from evil…
So God granted him what he requested.

1 Chronicles 4:10

What are you requesting in your daily quiet time? Are you shy and timid? Do you think that it is wrong to ask for extra blessings?

This short book can easily be read in an hour, but it shares a message that can last a lifetime. We are often taught to be happy with what we have, and are even reminded that others have much less. Many of us go through our adult lives happy with the crumbs that fall of the table and never consider all the great things that we could have.

Each of you reading this has gotten involved in National Agents Alliance because you believe that there is something better for you and your family. You believe it’s worth working for. At National Agents Alliance, we get together and share a vision of a new car or home, a vacation for the family or college tuition. But are you really thinking big enough? Are there blessings beyond your wildest dreams waiting for you? So many people give up because they are not sure what to dream about or to ask for.

Most people couldn’t possibly have known what their future would hold when they were sitting at their kitchen table dreaming, nor could they foresee exactly how their territory would be expanded.

Yet people here are touching more lives and enjoying more blessing than they could have imagined.

If you are ready to open yourself to the flow of blessing and are willing to take on more territory,

I encourage you to pick up this book and read it tonight. In less than an hour, your view of what God wants in your life will change dramatically for the better, and you will never be the same.

Let me close with a brief excerpt from the book: “God always intervenes when you put His agenda before yours and go for it! Amazingly, if you have prayed to the Lord to expand a border, you will recognize his divine answer. You’ll have a front row seat in a life of miracles.”

If you want your business to grow with National Agents Alliance, think bigger and just ask for it!
