Being Mentored Through Empowerment by Ray Gebauer

The most pathetic person is the one with sight but no vision.” Helen Keller

Most people are over concerned with the HOW of the business; they think that unless they know exactly how they are going to create an income, then they can’t do it.


I say that as important as it is to know the “How to” part, success is 90% from knowing your WHY (your reasons) and only about 10% from the HOW.


When the WHY is strong enough, the HOW will take care of itself.


So now is your time to clearly identify YOUR REASONS for being involved (and the HOW part of this will also be fully addressed, but let’s not put the cart before the horse like most people do).


The one single thing that will make the most difference in your velocity of success is CLARITY as to your REASONS for being in this enterprise, which in turn generates your passion/energy.


It’s only when you clearly identify your purpose and set specific goals that you can fully unleash your God given potential (and perhaps undeveloped talents) that can empower you to turn your dreams into reality. As soon as you know your “why,” the “how” (to do it) will practically take care of itself. Without a clear “why,” a person cannot be passionate about something—instead they will be passive.


When you are passive, something terrible happens: NOTHING!


It is still true that “without a vision, the people perish.” This is because without a vision, you WILL be passive. And of course, passive people never find any treasure. Only passionate people find it.  I request that you invest twenty minutes into clarifying your purpose and reasons RIGHT NOW—it will be like getting an insurance policy to insure your success. Most people spend more time planning a one-week vacation than they do planning their life. Most people will not value the future enough to take the time to seriously answer the following questions. They will skip over it and intend to do it later.

DO NOT be like most people—if you do, you will get what most people get, which is not much.



So, be different.

 Do yourself a favor and

Do this NOW so as to empower yourself with your reasons.
