10 Unwavering Truths That Successful People Live By

11313739_1642224119356089_1479625352_n

Work for your success, don’t just dream about it.

When you work as hard as you do, you are bound to run into several unanticipated challenges that require you to harness all of your strength and skill to continue on your path of success. Additionally, you are also likely to get offered all sorts of advice to help you solve these problems.

In order to set all of your options straight, these 10 pieces of advice that successful people apply to their lives will allow you to overcome obstacles and achieve your goals. Regardless of your goals, the industry you are in, or what you want to achieve, these tips are essential for your success.

1. You can achieve what you thought was impossible

When you go along your journey, you will have many people tell you what you can’t do or that you shouldn’t do. You might even catch yourself telling yourself that it is impossible. One thing that successful people do is,  if they want to do something, regardless of how big it is, they tell themselves that they can do this, no matter what other people say. We are all capable of achieving more than we think, so don’t be the one holding yourself back.

2. There will be failures

Chances are, you will find failure before you find success. We all fail in order to reach success. The key to successful people is that when they are dealt with failures in life, they stay resilient, don’t wallow in it, and take away what they learn. They realize that it will pay off in the end, so they stick with it.

3. Growth takes time

Realize that your success just can’t be achieved overnight. Real, meaningful, and sustainable growth happens over time, and happens very slowly. If you did achieve success overnight, you short-cut yourself in going through the work of obtaining it. The process of achieving success if just as important as the outcome itself.

4. Freedom is the best reward for your work

There are plenty of people out there who make a comfortable living, but don’t get to enjoy it. They are slaves to their jobs or working for a boss they don’t respect. As you advance in your career, realize that the best reward for being a success at your job is to enjoy freedom and do what you want in life.

5. It’s OK to lose

Realize that you won’t always attain a goal, and realize that it is okay. When you don’t achieve something, it is easy to want to give up on your efforts. However, the most successful people realize that one loss doesn’t impact their ability or desire to achieve. Refocus after a tough loss, learn from it, and see what you can do better.

6. Successful people control their emotions

Although your work life may be the cause of your stress, the people who can manage their emotions are the most successful. By keeping a cooler head in the office, you can always prevail. Keeping your emotions in check will also help you solve problems more rationally, rather than making decisions based off of emotions.

7. Never be afraid to be wrong

Successful people also realize that they aren’t perfect and won’t always make the right decisions. Take risks from time to time, and even if they don’t pan out the way you want them to, know that you took a calculated risk that did pose some value at one point. No one is ever right 100 percent of the time, and making mistakes earlier in life that you can learn from will make you a more seasoned decision-maker.

8. Your success depends on you

If you want to reach success, you need to assess your individual commitment to the goal you desire to achieve. If you aren’t reaching success, take a look at yourself. Are you doing everything you can to try to reach your goals? Are you completely devoted to those goals? Do the little things you do in life add up to what you are trying to achieve? The most successful people can answer yes to these questions.

9. Never stop trying to improve

Successful people know that there isn’t a limit on what knowledge you can gain or what you can learn how to do. Never stop learning and improving. Even when you think you have achieved it all, try to climb a bit higher. There is always way more room to work and achieve more.

10. Financial freedom can help you get the life you deserve

Although financial freedom shouldn’t be the only end goal you have, it is a powerful thing. No matter where you are from, being happy is the number one factor you should be striving for in life. The most successful people can say that they are happy. Yes, they may be financially sound, but they enjoy what they are doing. They are surrounded by people they love and love them, who encourage them to work hard for their goals.

Coastal Vacations

Don’t Allow ‘BUT’ to Stop You..

BUT
Most of us go through life pretending…
That we don’t have any special goals or ambitions or desires..
When deep down inside we do really want more..

We block ourselves, and use these words almost like we’re in a trance..
Like we’re sleepwalking through life.

We find way to cancel our dreams.
A lot of things we want to do, a lot of places that we want to go,
a lot of things we would like to experience and we just stop at ‘BUT..’

‘BUT’ will cause you to hide out behind fear.

‘But’ will cause you to come up with all kinds of excuses that you can
validate your inaction and NOT acting on your dreams.

‘But’ is a Dream Killer.

Most people, do you know what they do?
They go through life quietly and tiptoeing to the early grave.

We’ve been holding back, we have ideas that we don’t act on.
Things we want to do but are afraid to take action on….

Tips For a California Road-Trip

Here are 6 tips for a perfect California coast road trip:

IMG_1758 copy

bigsur

1. Prepare for no phone service in Big Sur

No phone service?! Wait, what? Once you hit San Simeon and Big Sur, phone service pretty much stops.
So say goodbye to texting / snapping / instagram / researching random a** facts on Google, and just enjoy the ride.
IMG_6138

2. Create a list of must-sees

It comes in handy to do a little research before your trip. Create a list of must-sees.

IMG_2024

3. Ask a local

Local recommendations are key. Locals are more inclined to give you honest, unfiltered and personalized advice.
Without the help of our Air BnB family, friendly locals, and even gas station attendants, it’ll be hard to find:
Nepenthes Restaurant (in Big Sur), Centrally Grown Restaurant (in Cambria) and Ragged Point (in Big Sur) to see the sunset.

IMG_1894nepenthe

4. Whatever you do, hike the waterfalls

After you’ve been sitting in a car for many hours, a hike feels amazing….
and it’s even better when there’s a waterfall at the end of it. It’s like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!
Salmon Creek Trail and Limekiln Trail are both excellent waterfall hikes.

Hike Salmon Creek Trail, which is only 1/2 a mile from the trail-head. Super easy and rewarding.

Start your way up Salmon Creek Trail and hang a left. You’ll traverse over a rocky path, then walk across a
mini bridge to reach the beautiful 120-foot falls. It’s nature paradise in this tiny cove (*obsessed*)!

Arrive to McWay Falls early to avoid tourists

6963968-mcway-falls-california

One of the biggest attractions at Big Sur is McWay Falls.
Since this beautiful spot is packed with tourists, parking can be a little tricky too.
Walk half a mile to the overlook and it’s easy to see why this spot is so popular!  It’s absolutely gorgeous.

4. Save $ and do Air Bed and Breakfast

Air BnB is the BEST. You a.) save money b.) get local recommendations c.) get a home cooked breakfast
..meet adorable people who invite your into their homes (like Bill & Janice).

IMG_1708

5. Tour Hearst Castle in the early morning

Hearst Castle is stunning and undeniably charming. It’s best to take a morning tour to avoid the heat (especially since there’s no AC inside).

The Grand Rooms Tour, which tours 5 rooms is perfect for first-time visitors of the castle and costs $25.
Overall though, I’d still recommend to anyone making their way up the coast.

IMG_2063

6. Eat lots of pastries in Solvang

Solvang is an adorable little Danish town just two hours north of Los Angeles. The pastries are GREAT!

Fill your tummy with sweets galore: butter-cream fudge, cinnamon crumb cake, pretzels and chocolate toffee.
Pure bliss!

Why Should You Start a Home Based Business?!!

9 Reasons to Start a Home-Based Business

Live Your Dreams BannerThe “Lifestyle” approach to marketing is an innovative yet natural way to gain financial independence. It’s innovative because it defies the traditional business model of relying on advertising to generate slow-building product sales. It’s natural because instead of high-pressure sales tactics and expensive advertising, it relies on the concept of helping yourself through helping others.

That’s why when I started to list nine great reasons why this is the perfect day to start owning your life, I had a really hard time. It wasn’t because it was hard to come up with nine reasons, it was hard to limit the list to just nine!

To help me narrow the many reasons down to just a few, I went to some of our most successful partners. They told me that for them, the benefit isn’t just making more money; it is enjoying a whole new lifestyle. These are the nine biggest benefits of that lifestyle.

Quality of Life

Take a Well-Deserved Vacation

homepagegraphicmontageconWhen was the last time you took a vacation? How long was it? For most people vacations are controlled by their employer. They are told when they can go and how long they can take. Wouldn’t you like to take as long a vacation as you want, when you are ready to go? When you own the business, you set the vacation schedule!

Spend More Time with Your Family

If you spend 40, 60 or even 80 hours a week at work, how much time are you spending with your family? How many dance recitals or HBB.Family.Petsparent-teacher meetings have you missed? These years of family time that you are losing can never be regained. Make the choice to own your life today, and start giving your family the love and attention that both you and they deserve.

Give Your Children a Stay-at-Home Parent

Life is full of tough choices. You hated the idea of taking your kids to daycare instead of being home with them every day. You had to, though, just to make ends meet. Very few jobs today pay enough to let one parent stay home. When you live and work at home, you can earn as much as you need and still be there for your children. Your spouse may be able to stay home, too. You won’t miss any more of the crucial bonding years with your children. You decide how much time you need to spend working, and take the family time that you need.

Financial Freedom

Eliminate Debts

Part of owning your life is owning your financial situation. If you have debts, you can spend the extra money you can make paying some of them off. Get rid of those high-interest credit card payments. Pay off your car. Remove some of the stress in your life by eliminating some of your debts.

Pay Your Mortgage Off Quicker

A home mortgage is one of the biggest expenses most people have. Wouldn’t you like to get yours paid off sooner? Just one extra principal payment each year can take years off of your loan. Imagine what two or three could do! Imagine making an extra payment each month! Paying your mortgage off sooner can mean having to work less in your later years.

Earn More Money to Help Buy Your Dream Car or Home

Dream Home InsideOwning your business can mean earning more money for the things you want. Because your labor goes to make money for you instead of a corporation, you can earn more money for the hours that you work. You may want to put some of this money toward the car or home you have always wanted. That is what financial freedom is all about.

Increase Your Savings

Enjoy Valuable Tax Savings

Saving money is the same as making more money. When you own a home-based business, part of your home becomes business space. The rooms you work in, the computer and printer you use, and your Internet service and cell phone all may become business expenses. This means they may be deductible on your taxes, saving you money! That is more money you can put to work paying off debts or taking a hard-earned vacation.

Save for a Rainy Day

When you work for someone else, it is hard to have extra money at the end of the month for savings. If your car broke down, could you pay to get it fixed? If your child needed braces, could you afford them? The extra money you can earn with your own business can make this possible. You can put some of that money in the bank for a rainy day. That way, when the bumps in the road of life come along, you will be ready for them.

Add to Your Retirement Savings

Do have enough money in the bank to retire when you are ready? Does your present job let you save enough money every month so that you can ever stop working? Jobs today rarely come with company-paid retirement plans. They make you put your money into stocks or IRAs if you want to be able to retire. That can be hard to do when you barely make enough to pay the bills. Your home-based business can give you the extra money to start building up your retirement savings now.

Every Successful Home Business Should Be Simple – Coastal Freedom at it’s BEST!

Greek.LunchLet’s face it there are tons of people out there talking about being able to work from home.  They tell you about websites and there are 17 different ways to make money or build a lucrative home business.  But that fact is you don’t need 17 different ways.  You only need one that works.  Most people tell you there’s marketing but when you get going the marketing is just simply your friends and family.

The bottom line is this most companies on the Internet do not have a simple approach that could truly give you an above average shot at making a 6 Figure income in one year.  IF THERE REALLY IS a simple system with a simple approach then the top income earner to the lowest income earner would all be following the same system.  The gap in income would primarily be the amount of time they’ve used what ever real “system” was in place.

Unfortunately most companies can’t really give you the ABC’s that you can apply like 123.  Most people can’t show you how to consistently generate and income and help others do it over and over again.  Honestly, when I first started working from home I couldn’t either.  Then I met Dani Johnson and learned her techniques.  The same scripted process I use day in and day out following her scripts with a 4 step success system that’s allowing me to earn and work from home.

I can honestly say regardless of the vehicle you use or company you work with if you don’t have a system to drive it, it won’t go very fast.  Thank you Dani Johnson for giving me a system that has allowed me to build a lucrative home based business and travel around the world with my family.

To Your Success!!

Why Does Coastal Travel (DFI) Work? Freedom at it’s Best!

CV.Ocean.Island.BannerI’ve always said the business was simple but why? I’m going to lay out in bullet points what I explained to him and why I believe Coastal Travel is so simple.

1. The product is in huge demand. Who does not want to take a vacation? With the news and perception that the economy is slow who does not want to make some extra money on top of that? But that alone does not make it simple.

2. The presentations, the telling and selling is already done for you. DFI is a marketing and training system established by Coastal Travel Directors for Coastal Travel Directors. IF you are part of the DFI Marketing/Training and Development system then you don’t have to build websites that is already done. Live Conference calls that are live and with real people. Hosted by people who are giving back of their time. Usually 6 Figure Income earners doing the presenting for you and answering questions for you when you are brand new.

3. Advertising and Marketing already figured out. While you can market coastal travel like any other product or service. If you don’t have that type of background you can use the same marketing methods that every other leader is using. 95% of the money I ever earned came utilizing our marketing companies that DFI has set up for us. This is probably one of the biggest reasons for success. The successful directors are building their business just like the newest person. That’s duplication.

4. Support and Training is unbelievable. In Coastal Travel you can believe that almost always your director I don’t care how long they have been around they will be there to help you. It’s genius the way the training pay works. I’d say it definitely ensures that someone is there to help you but, on top of that the DFI Training System is incredible. 18 live support training calls every week were successful directors are volunteering their time to help you build a business and succeed. They are giving back because someone did it for them. OK maybe this is the reason for the business being so simple.

The bottom line is this where else in corporate America does it exist were the most successful people will volunteer hours a week to help guide you and be there to provide feedback for you when ever you need it. If you are like me you maybe wondering what do they get for it? That was my biggest question about 4 years ago as well. The reality is they get absolutely nothing except for a good feeling inside knowing they are helping someone get to where they are.

5. The People, are genuine honest and real. Some of the best people I ever met in my life were in DFI. I’d have to say that DFI makes Coastal Travel what it is. People who care about you from day one. It doesn’t matter that they don’t know you, in the beginning you just know that they are there to help. It’s not till later that you realize behind the scenes on every call there are hundreds of people in the background that are cheering you on and pulling for you. They really do want you to succeed. Over time they start to learn who you are as a person, by your voice over the phone and your personality. How many times have you had someone encourage you to do better over and over. They were never jealous they just wanted to see you succeed!

I guess I’d have to restate the obvious now because of DFI, Coastal Travel is an extremely simple why to work from home. All the hard part of being in your own business is figured out. They have the product, the presentations are figured out for your clients via websites or conference calls, they have the clients already expecting to hear back from you and they have people who are incredibly giving. Over all combined DFI has created the best experience of my life.
