Motivating People From Where They Are – FPUK.co – Andrew Chenery

depressed pic

Hi Friend,  How is your new week shaping up? I am so proud of you for being a person who wants more out of their life and is working to achieve your goals and better yourself.

You might be doing great but when you look around, are you starting to see others give up? They set this goal and now they’re already going back to old habits?

Clients have asked me before, “Andrew how do I motivate others to succeed, as well?” It can be frustrating to see those you are close to start things and then give up! I’ve run into this with my kids a lot, my wife and even in myself.

To answer your question, let me share a story. You may or may not know this, but I went through a bad period of being stressed, depressed and entertaining dark thoughts. It lasted for 9 solid months before finally getting so sick and tired of being sick and tired, I decided to do something about it.

If you had tried to motivate me anytime during those months, I wouldn’t have listened. Mainly because I was busy having a pity party and enjoyed blaming everyone else. I just wasn’t ready.

A lot of people say they want success, say they want to lose weight, make more money, get a better job. But they really don’t! And that is okay. We are all at different points in our journey.

You can try to push people out of their ruts, but they might be having fun in there. I wasn’t ready to listen until month 10 of being in that place. Who knows how long it will take others to be ready to listen or actually pull themselves out of the hole!

So what are you supposed to do in this situation?

The only thing you can do… love people where they happen to be in their life. Support them right where they are, realizing they might be at a different place than you in their life journey. When you are there for them, you will learn what motivates them and can just encourage that particular hot-button area!

It puts stress on your relationships when you to try to force others to succeed. And if you push, you will push them away. It shows you don’t support them in their struggles. It shows them your agenda is more important than theirs.

Are you ready to encourage and love others where they are right now?  Leave me your comments and don’t forget to Like and Share this message. If you’re looking for more tips to decrease stress, better your relationships and uncover new strategies for success, join us by subscribing to this blog.

Thats it for today – I hope you have an amazing day

Network Marketing Explained – FPUK.co

20131206-110527.jpg

Hi Friends

What is Network Marketing?

Network marketing is something that allows you to create a lifestyle, that will bring you more income than the highest paid professional you know.
Its something that allows you to do what you want, when you want, in the fashion that you want to do it in.
That sounds great but what are we doing?
Basically when a company starts up, they need to get the word out about their product or service, so typically they have a certain percentage of their advertising budget thats set aside for billboards, radio, TV, newspapers, magazines, national sports events etc. What we are doing is simply taking that advertising money and instead of doing all those things or stuff that we don’t believe works, they pay it to us, to people that are out in the field, that are using those products or services that can give a recommendation to our friends or family, and do you know what ?…. they pay us very very well, in fact let me tell you about a few of my friends that have been paid very very well to do exactly that.
My friend Karol used to be a Pizza delivery driver, he came from another country, to find his dream, he didn’t know a lot of english, didn’t have a lot of connections, but because of this industry he was able to now have that lifestyle – to do what he wanted to do, now hes able to send money back home to his family, and actually help and he’s got an amazing – amazing lifestyle because of it.
Or Anneeta, she moved here with her family and after 3 years her husband died while abroad in a car crash and she was left with 3 young children and no income, they had no life insurance and she got nothing, but after starting in network marketing, part time to start with she soon started earning a small income to afford food and rent and then she was able to earn enough to have the children looked after allowing her a few more hours doing her business, and now she has a large team, all making serious money, and she is now making more money than her husband used to make in his full time job, and she is able to reduce how many hours she does to spend valuable time with her children – raising them up in a lifestyle she and her husband had dreamed about when they moved to the UK.
So heres my question to you?
I don’t know why you’re reading this, I don’t know if your a college student, maybe your up to your eye balls in debt, and you don’t know how to pay that back, and you really don’t know if your going to have a job for much longer, I don’t know if you’re looking at retiring, and you don’t know if thats ever going to happen, or I don’t know if your friend told you about network marketing, but whatever the case may be, this industry is an amazing industry, we have a system that allows you to do certain steps that will produce predictable results, and what we’ve seen is that through that system there’s been thousands & thousands of people that have been able to walk through it and accomplish their dreams and goals.
So heres what I know, I know that if you have a dream in your heart, and you’re willing to do something about it, if you believe that there’s maybe more to something than the daily grind of doing forty hours a week, for forty years of your life, to end up on forty percent of what didn’t look good to start with, then I say lets partner up, let me take you by the hand, and lets do this together, it happened to me and can happen to you.
Whatever your channel to achieve this, you need to make sure that it produces residual income, income that you get paid forever for doing something once, no return visits needed, and this business can give you just that.
If you’d like to talk more about this opportunity, to work along side your full time job part time, earning additional spare money or you need to start now full time in your spare time then call me today on 01394 549364 or click here to watch the company video giving more info and what its all about.
Thats its for now – have an amazing blessed day whatever you do.
You have one life – make it count.

How to Raise Your Children – Andrew Chenery

hands
Hi Friends,

What do you think about influence? Maybe you don’t think you have any in your position or in your life. But the truth is, every decision you make has a huge effect on the people around you… especially your children. Every time you degrade yourself in the mirror, gossip about your boss or talk about what foods you like, you are influencing their future.

Whether you are making a conscious effort or not to set the best possible example for your children, they are always watching you. And they WILL follow your example.

Your children see more than you realise and they catch on so quickly. Your habits will soon become their habits. The way you react in circumstances shows them how to react. How you eat will show them how to eat. That’s pretty powerful stuff!

Consider the example you are setting for your children in these areas of your life:

Relationships
Think about how you react when you are angry or upset. Are you putting forth the example of someone who is in control of their own spirit? If you have a “10” reaction to a “2” offense, your child is watching that and mentally filing it for future reference! How do they view marriage when they see your interactions with your spouse? You are setting the ultimate example for all their present and future relationships and marriage.

Work Ethic 
You also shape their work ethic. Are you constantly complaining about your job and boss at the dinner table? Do you complain about Mondays and live for the weekend? You have to treat your job like the privilege it is! Having a job in todays climate is a blessing. Treat it like one, instead of making your child fear the day they have to start working. Unless, of course, you want them to sleep in your home well into their 30s.

Body Image
Do you spend too much time front of the mirror making negative comments about your body? Most women pass their body issues onto their daughters. If you obsess over food, they will as well.

And for the men – what example are you setting? Do you push yourself at the gym or just plop in front of the TV and watch your gut grow? These habits have an equally major effect on your son.

Money
One of the harshest habits to impact your child’s future would be your spending habits. Simple things like buying more food shopping when there are tons of food already in the house, eating out frequently or complaining about having “nothing to eat” while staring at a fridge full of leftovers, are all things they will pick up on!

The actions you see in your children today are more than likely things you taught them when they were young. But it isn’t too late to sit down with your children, apologize for the example you have set and start moving forward. It’s okay to be honest with your children about your finances, relationships or whatever else is going on in your life.

We all have poor habits, make poor choices on occasion and unintentionally pass on things we never would have imagined to our children. In your life have you ever stopped and realised, “Whoops, I’m being my Dad” after uttering a similar phrase he always used?

Look, parenting doesn’t come with an instruction manual. A lot of things you pick up as you go, but you also don’t have to go blindly.

Tell me about some “Whoops” moments you’ve had while raising your children. I KNOW you have them!

Thats it for today, move toward the positive and raise a generation to be proud of.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Activate that circle of influence today and please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Build Your Circle Of Friends – FPUK.co

ripple fpuk.co

Hi Friends,
Back from honeymoon now – Sorry its been a while since I last posted, but 1 month ago yesterday we got married and then took time out in Egypt to relax and although I took my trusted iPad planning to continue my blogging whilst there, wisdom and relaxation took over.
But while we were there we met and built our circle of friends, talking about life around the pool or while on the beach we met so many people, some happy as they escaped reality and their stress back home and some like us that enjoy life and all it gives us. But today I want to continue talking about friends and the ripple effect it causes building true friendships.

What would you say if I told you you are wasting one of your biggest assets? You’d probably want to know what it was! You see, every human has a circle of influence. In fact, the average person knows 2,000 people by the time they are 20 years old.

That means every day you have the power to influence thousands of people just by stating an opinion, sharing life experiences and recommending other businesses.

You can choose to ignore your circle of influence, like the majority of people do. Or you can utilise this resource to build your business, find a job, look for a date or expose your product or service.

I imagine you’re reminded of a few slimy “friends” you once had on Facebook who wouldn’t stop pushing their business in your face until you were so exhausted you finally “unfriended” them. But that isn’t what I mean. You can utilise your influence without resorting to shameless self-promotion.

What I am talking about is creating a mutually-beneficial relationship. How many times have you heard an acquaintance, friend or family member express a need for something? They’re looking for a hair stylist, they just put their house on the market… etc.

What you do is become a connector. Help your friends fill their needs! Know someone who is recruiting and another person that is looking for a job? Refer your friend.

I’m a firm believer that what you hand out, you will get back. So when you give referrals, who do you think is the first name they will think of when referring within their circle of influence? Becoming a resource for your friends not only increases your value, but it’s essentially setting up free advertising for yourself. Not only that, but you are helping the people in your life and strengthening those relationships.

Marketers are always trying to get to your list. Think of it this way – Abercrombie isn’t about getting YOU to buy their clothes. They are about getting you to advertise for them. That’s why they put their label on the outside. You are advertising their clothes to your circle of influence. So if these marketers find your list so valuable, why don’t YOU use your own list???

Building a list and using the resources that are right in front of you will open so many doors and opportunities: jobs, loyal clients, better relationships and more! You should be consistently building and adding to your list of resources.

Start asking “Who do I know?” You’d be surprised by the number of people you actually know and the possible resources you are wasting.

Thats it for today, build your list, talk to 5 more people and ask for a business card or phone number, and of course give your out too.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Activate that circle of influence today and please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Residual Income = Time Freedom – FPUK.co

time freedom3

Hi Friends,

I’m getting a little bit excited now, as many of you know I’m getting married this Saturday and my Event Planner iPhone app is telling me its only 2 days 6 hours and 2 minutes away – Wow !!

I’m off very soon to go and collect some very good friends from the airport that are coming to stay and attend our wedding, and thats really part of what I want to talk to you all today about.

Taking Time Off, when I need is one of the many benefits of working for my self, and I’ve done this for 9 years now. Every time one of my children has had a school assembly or a school lunch for fathers I’ve been able to attend, I’ve been able to take my children to school and pick them up if I’ve wanted and been their for the important events. I haven’t had to ask the boss for time off, ok all I’ve had to do is rearrange my diary with my clients but as long as my appointments have been met thats been ok, but thats the thing in my diary my children’s events are listed in my list of appointments as important as a business client. This is where getting your life plan balance correct and I’ve talked about that in other posts.

But now, taking time off when i wanted just meant taking time off, I’m the boss right so i can say i’m going to the airport this morning and no-one can complain or get jealous for me being missing again. But in the past, if I took too much time off my income dipped a little, but time and money are the 2 things we always need more of and always run out very quickly. But now since adding an extra income stream, I have money coming in whether I work or take time off.

Residual Income is a term very misunderstood, but its a term that is becoming more popular as we understand and compare earning types. Many people get paid linear income, they get paid the same each week or month for the work they have done, whether they have worked extra hard or just done their job, they get paid the same. They have been paid for the number of hours they’ve done i.e a 40 hour week with half hour for lunch resulting in a 37.5 hour week. Others get paid for productivity, producing items for sale and often the hours put in doesn’t justify the retail price of the product covering the time spent, as in artists and crafts people. In both these examples as soon as they stop working and don’t do anything their income stops. With residual income, work is done for very little effort which then earns income continuously without any manual input to keep it coming in, and this is what my newest income steam is – Residual Income. Now this truly allows me to take time off as and when I want without having to book my holidays with the boss and getting it on the calendar early so as not to miss out.

Are these important to you:

  • Time Freedom
  • Residual Income
  • Top up your pension
  • Financial Peace
  • Working where and when you want
  • Spending time with family or children

If the answer to any of these is Yes then take a look at earning Residual Income, which can be ran alongside your part/full time job or self employed role until the level is correct for you and then you can Jump Ship to your new lifestyle. I know i’d rather work hard for the next 5 years to then receive my current yearly salary paid to me each month without much input, and I’ve got many friends doing just that for just a few hours a week.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Things To Do In Holidays – FPUK.co

easter 2014

Hi Friends,
For many, Easter holidays will be starting soon, and while the kids are overjoyed about their newfound freedom, many parents are not so overjoyed. Soon you may hear the two little words every parent dreads: “I’m booorrrrred!!!”

Some parents will put their kids in front of the TV or video games for a a couple of weeks of mind-numbing screen time. Other parents will dig deep into their wallets (or simply swipe the credit card) to send their kids to workshops and amusement parks and all different kinds of activities.

But Easter Holiday fun does not have to break the bank! In fact, with a little imagination and planning, you can have the most enjoyable and affordable break ever!

Today I want to give you a few ideas to get you started on the right track. The options truly are endless!

Turn off the TV! Enjoy the beautiful weather instead. Go on a walk, visit the zoo, go camping in the backyard, or go to the swimming pool. You’ll have more fun exploring and getting some fresh air than you would sat in front of the TV!
Find inexpensive and/or free activities in your area. Attend sporting events or concerts. Find local festivals, celebrations or neighbourhood parties. Hold an Easter BBQ. Invite the neighbours kids for a water balloon fight, create an obstacle course, or stage your own Backgarden Olympics.
Give the kids a chance to learn entrepreneurial skills by setting up a car boot or garage sale or starting a dog walking business. They can even help the neighbours with garden work or housecleaning. This is a great way to teach your kids how to start and run a business, as well as how to manage their time and money.
Spend quality time together as a family. Have a Family Game Night, cook dinners together or bake cup cakes with the kids. Spend time really listening to your kids and taking this time to learn more about what makes them tick. When they look back at their Easter Holidays, these are the things they will remember.
Are you catching what I’m saying?? There are tons of ways to be fun and adventurous without spending tons of money! I would love to know what your Easter Holiday plans are. How do you plan to make this a fun, memorable and affordable  break? Leave your comments for me!

It would be a great idea to talk with your family about this, as well. Get their ideas. Find out what your kids would like to do during their break. (You may be surprised by what their idea of fun is!) Pass this message around to your friends, colleagues and people in your community in addition to Liking and Sharing today’s post! There’s always room for more ideas for inexpensive fun.

 

Thats it for today – start thinking & planning, set time aside to plan for the best for your family.

Stay Blessed

Andrew

3 Tools to Beat This Economy

  
There are millions of people who are drowning in debt and suffocating under financial pressure, and most blame the economy for their financial struggles. “I can’t get a job because of the economy!” “I can’t pay my bills because of the economy!” “I’m in debt because of the economy!”

But then there are lots of others experiencing outrageous success in the exact same economy. It raises the question – if the economy was truly to blame for either success or failure, then why isn’t everyone experiencing the same success or failure?

Are you ready for this? It’s not the economy! It’s you. Those succeeding in this economy are obviously doing something completely different than the ones who are failing. They know that it’s never the circumstances that determine success in life – it’s how you deal with the circumstances.

What do circumstances have to do with all of this? Here’s the deal. You can either use the economy as an excuse and do what the other 98% of the population is doing – sit back and hope for the economy to change. OR you can become part of this 2% or people who is figuring out how to make themselves more valuable by learning how to thrive in any economy.

There’s a very simple principle I learned when I first got into business, and that is the marketplace pays for value. That principle has helped me, as well as hundreds of thousands of people to succeed in a downtime market. My clients have gotten giant raises, bonuses, and promotions in their jobs, and their businesses have exploded, all because they have increased their value.

I know you’re saying, “HOW can I increase my value?” It’s easy… The only way to increase your value is to increase your skill. It’s NOT about your personality, your looks, where you were born, your family, or your background. It’s your skill.

There are 3 skill sets that make you valuable in any economy – professional skills, people skills, and leadership development skills. All of these skill sets will increase your value and your income.

Professional skills. Whether you are a doctor, estate agent, mechanic, waitress, teacher, home business owner, or customer service rep, you must know the basics of your profession. You must be willing to learn new, specialized skills. The difference in a professional and an amateur is your skill.

People skills. People are everywhere! You work with them, live with them, buy things from them, and sell things to them. And where does money come from? People! If you learn more about people than you do anything else, you will be unusually successful. If you learn great people skills, you will attain income security. Those who do not have people skills are usually the first to be laid off.

Personal development & leadership skills. People with high leadership skills have extremely high influence and high value in the marketplace. They are consistently working on improving themselves, and they raise up other leaders. They have a “no excuse” mindset. They focus on producing results. They do not let circumstances define their success, but they take personal responsibility to create their own success.
It’s time to stop using the economy as an excuse. Because the reality is, if you do the same thing you’ve always done, you’ll get the same thing you’ve always gotten. So you have to take your skills to the next level. If you want to truly succeed in this economy, you’ve got to master professional skills, people skills, and personal development and leadership skills.

Go ahead and take a few minutes right now to evaluate your skill levels in these 3 areas. (How will you know where you stand? Look at the result – your income.) If you would like to increase your income, grow your business, get promoted in your job, and finally get out of debt and on your way to financial independence in 2013, this is where you must start.

Before I sign off for today, would you please help me with something? It’s no secret that people around the world are struggling financially. You have in front of you today a message that will equip people to pull themselves out of a financial pit. And all we have to do is get the message to them. So please just send this to them today!

Have a great day 

Andrew
