Bob Proctor, Secret Best 3 Tips For 'law Of Attraction' Success

The wise have known about the Law of Attraction for centuries. It was looked upon as The Secret of Life by ancient sages and seers, and recorded throughout history in spiritual and religious teachings all over the world.
In this modern age, we have been reintroduced to The Secret of Life by the movie and book, 'The Secret'. Since its release in 2006, in has become a worldwide phenomenon, and its author, Rhonda Byrne has done a fantastic job of spreading the word and changing peoples lives forever.
However. The book 'The Secret' was just an 'introduction' to The Secret of Life, and not a step by step action plan on how to turn your thoughts into things. Since then, we've had a barrage of 'self-help experts' queuing to show us how it's done.
For me Bob Proctor, secret teacher who appears first in the movie, has a perfect understanding, and it boils down to 3 simple tips that I'd love to share with you:

Tip 1 - Really Identify Your Innermost Desire
Not as easy as you might think. You might want that promotion at work - but why? Ask yourself 'What Do I REALLY Want?" Did you want the promotion so you have more cash? If you do, why? So you can give your children the life you never had? OK - then forget the promotion, the desire is 'To Give My Kids a Happy and Full Childhood Full of Love".
If you want a promotion at work but it's not about the cash - then why do you want it? What Do You REALLY Want? Perhaps to feel good about yourself because you believe you've been 'passed over' at work? Then really, what you want is to feel good about yourself! Identify that and write it down (best to do so in the present tense) "I feel great about myself - I'm a natural leader and (fill in the blank).

Tip 2 - Visualize.
Having identified what you really want, and having written it down, the next step is to see it. I find the best way to do this is to leave myself reminders around the home and office.
One wish I had was to travel around the Caribbean island hopping.
I trawled the web for photos of different islands, added them to my desktop and screen saver slideshow, and then printed them out. The photos went above my desk on a cork board, on the fridge door, on my bedside table - wherever I might see them often.
Whenever I got the chance, I would shut my eyes and imagine the sun on my face and the sound of waves crashing, take a deep breath and be full of gratitude for my island hopping trip.
Within a year, I was invited on a trip that took in Barbados, St Lucia, Granada, The Dominican Republic, as well as St Vincent and The Grenadines. The best part - the trip cost me nothing! I'll explain in a moment.
Tip 3 - Take Massive Action
Many people I've met over the last few years, tell me 'they tried the Law of Attraction and it didn't work for them'. When I discuss their actions, it usually transpires that they gave a lot of thought to what they wanted, but did little else.
My advice is to take action - Colossal action.
Take my desire to visit the Caribbean. Did it just magically appear in a chorus of angels? No. Did it appear in a way that sent goose bumps down my spine - yes.
I had an email inviting me to a seminar based on real estate investment. It was the same invite I'd received weeks before, and yet because I had goals to fulfil, I decided to attend the meeting.
The person who invited me was into buying and letting property in the UK, and also into Spanish Property, and although I had no idea what it was that he was into at that time, I chose to accept the invitation. I knew that if I were to get to the Caribbean, I was going to have to do something different to what I was doing now - SO DECIDED TO LEAVE NO STONE UNTURNED, AND TO EXPLORE EVERY OPPORTUNITY THAT 'JUST HAPPENED' TO COME MY WAY.
When I attended the seminar, it happened to be about a great investment opportunity in - you guessed it, the Caribbean! Most people present complained - because the email invite had made it sound like it would be about UK or European investments. I just smiled.
Further action was needed - I went to many more meetings, visited the head office of the Caribbean developers, explored ways that I might invest myself, introduced friends to the company, and eventually got invited along on an agents trip to all of the islands. It cost me nothing in the end.
Who would have thought that there was a way to fulfil a dream at no financial expense at all? Yet there was. There is.
First - Carefully choose your wish, and be truthful about what you REALLY want and why.
Second - Leave yourself visual reminders at home and around your work place.
Third - take action, take Massive action. Look out for 'coincidences' and act on them daily.
There is more to learn, and we can expand on these Top 3 Tips For 'Law of Attraction' Success, but following this guide is an excellent starting point in beginning to uncover The Secret of Life. And what a fantastic life it is.

Opportunities In Business With Office Equipment Leasing

There arises the same questions when it comes to acquiring and replacing office equipment. Both new businesses and even existing businesses come across this. Whether you choose purchasing or equipment leasing, both get you what you want but with significant differences. The way you choose will depend upon the following factors:

Cash flow
Credit
Working capital
Equipment you need

If you are rebuilding your business or investing into a new one, large amounts of cash will be going out and it can seriously limit your cash flow and working capital. Office equipment leasing, for example, lets you make monthly payments on your equipment rather than having to give away large chunk of cash all at once. The saved cash and working capital can be spent on other things such as staffing, materials, and products. This makes a cost effective business strategy where you have savings and the latest technology equipments also. A business has in fact established an additional line of credit with its lessor.

By using equipment leasing, it reflects usage as the cost of the it spread over the asset. The profits generated from this are usually greater than the lease payments. You get the equipment when you require not when your budget needs are met. Monthly payments are generally fixed over the entire term, giving the flexibility of offering early settlement and upgrade options during the lease period and cash flow maintainability. It leaves your line of credit open for when you really need it. You get along with the technology and your customers see it.

The costs involved with office equipment leasing and the financing of other items is often deductible from your taxes. This gives you added financial gain. It keeps you on top of the newest advancements as it becomes obsolete much sooner than before due to technological advances. Therefore, it not only save you money on the initial costs, but also later on in the future.

Before you lease, you require to carry out careful analysis of your organization. This analysis should take notice of the availability of capital, administrative capacity to track equipment and deal with vendors, and risks associated with signing multi-year contracts. However, it is the most feasible ways and a cost effective alternative to remain in the race in today's business world.

How to Look for a Suitable Real Estate Agent

Meet with agents out during open houses, not in their places of work. Good agents are rarely at their desks.

Ensure that the realtor has closed several homes and has a number of years of experience in the industry. The average realtor closes only a couple of homes a year. Additional sales mean more skill.

If you are able, meet the realtor at one of their open houses as mentioned above. Do not fret that you are not interested in that particular house. The real estate agent understands that the open house rarely produce a buyer for that property and use the open house as a instrument to discover and meet potential clients.

Ensure that your realtor is online. Having a tech savvy real estate agent is essential these days as over 85% of all buyers primarily look for homes on the web. Great agents have portable computer and often have moved to mobile technology. A realtor must email, text, and be accessible to buyers and home sellers alike.

Look for signs that the agent is in demand. A busy realtor is good. Be cautious, sometimes they could be too busy. A realtor can only effectively work with roughly a half-dozen home shoppers and a dozen home sellers at any time to properly commit the time needed to a buyer. If they hand you over to an "assistant", look for another agent who can willingly commit his/her time to you.

It's imperative that the realtor is well-informed. Ask questions about things you've learned from your newly discovered interest in real estate. Should the agent encounter several difficulties in providing the information you are requesting, it would be best to look for an experienced realtor who can assist you. Regional community awareness is particularly essential in city settings.

An excellent agent is important when buying a home for the first time. He must have experience and should be able to guide you through the complexities of the process including lender info that you may have to supply. The financing procedure has become much more difficult and complex since 2010.

In addition, be sure to check the industry standing of the realtor or the brokerage firm. You want a real estate agent that can network and work helpfully with other Realtors. Experienced Realtors are likely to know the other real estate agents in the region and maintain positive working relationships with them. This often transforms into easier transactions.

Ask your agent where she lives. A Realtor that lives and works in the area knows a lot about the market and will be capable of answering important questions about the neighborhood. They ought to be familiar with the good neighborhoods where they live. This is especially critical in large metropolitan areas.

Ask your agent how many years have they been working in the industry. It really is not that newer Realtors aren't competent, but it is a consideration in making an informed decision. Many "experienced" Realtors often are not the best option either. Specifically if the realtor failed to update his knowledge and wares on the latest technology.

Ask who the agent is working for in the transaction, the purchaser or the vendor (an agent selling a house almost always works for the vendor and are likely to spin things a vendors way)

Ask "How will you keep me informed about the progress of my transaction?" What will be the update schedule?" "How will you send them to me?" Again, this is not a question with a correct answer, you can choose the real estate agent who can meet your requirements.

Remember to look at numerous properties within the same area during open house day, to get an idea about the house prices in your selected area. This can ensure you are not being completely fooled when you go to a realtor.

Work with an expert in the local market. There are professionals who concentrate in working within a specific community. Even when you've a realtor that you like, you might be best served by an agent who knows the neighborhood well, and will be able to inform you about any unusual local market conditions that an outsider might not be conscious of.

If you are a buyer, you want to work with a Buyer's Agent. By doing this you're certain that you will be well represented in the transaction. At the same time, for someone who is a seller, you need to work with someone that is experienced in representing the vendor and securing the most qualified buyer at the best net profit for you. Not all agents are experts in working with home buyers or sellers, so you need to ask their expertise.
