Picking the Right Profession by Fred Shadian

Picking the right profession is what helps to create prosperity, no matter what the economic cycle is.

My business is referral based.  I have very low monthly expenses with zero advertising costs; no yellow page advertising, no billboards, no radio or television advertising and I don’t publicize the many products that I sell.

How is that possible?  It seems everywhere you turn someone wants to sell you the secret formula for success.

The Secret Formula is within you.  It’s You offering the best of what you have to offer.

As Winston Churchill once stated: “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”

Well, I am giving you my formula for FREE. Yes folks, there are many things that are FREE.

The most important things for human survival are free. Can you guess what they are? *(think about this before seeing my answer at the bottom of the blog)*

Here is my Secret Formula 🙂

1. Find customers that are looking for you.

(You will need to put some thought into this; if you need help, let me know.)

2. Offer the best service that you can; always give more than what they paid for.

(Consider giving something back to the customer/client such as a free book, extra time, a free follow-up mentoring session, a dinner for 2, a thank you card or e-mail, or a business referral.)

3. Follow up to make certain they are happy with the service you provided. (Feedback is important.  How will you know if you did a good job or if your customer is satisfied?)

By using the above formula I have received numerous referrals that opened many doors to work with some amazing people all over the planet.

Why am I telling you this? I truly believe that when you choose the profession that best suits you and your lifestyle, or better yet the profession chooses you, the right people will always appear in your life. One of my favorite Vibrational Affirmations is: “When Vision/Mission is clear abundance will appear.” (more on that in future blog entries)

From time to time I get a call from a friend, an associate or a referral from a client to see if I would be willing to help them with their nutritional program or professional career. I am always honored and extremely thankful for this.

I hope this information helps you as you journey along your path towards your purpose, vision and mission.

Walking the Middle Path of the Yin/Yang by Fred Shadian

Walking the middle path between the yin/yang is where all harmonious and balanced answers are received and expressed.  This was a very powerful principle that was taught to me by Master Fook Yueng.

It is important when focusing on the holistic approach that we look at things in multiple ways.  We ask questions in multiple ways, we discover answers in multiple ways.  One of the best visual examples is the yin/yang symbol.  It is often used in traditional medicine and Tai Chi to demonstrate balance of all things.  In western culture it is referred to as yin and yang.  This creates a separation between the two.  In the Chinese culture they refer to it as the yin/yang and there is no separation between the two.

Within Yin there is Yang. Within Yang there is Yin.

Within Energy there is Structure. Within Structure there is Energy.

Within Softness there is Hardness.  Within Hardness there is Softness.

Within Leadership there is a Servant.  Within a Servant there is Leadership.

Creating Momentum in your life by Fred Shadian

Creating Momentum in your life is a progression of movements that are created just like an ocean wave. You can become part of the flow of momentum and be caught by the wave and ride it to create the momentum that you desire in any aspect of your life.

The key to creating momentum, in reality, is to recognize the extraordinary movement in your life or in your organization and to take small steps each and every day towards your desired outcome. Determine where you are at and where you are going and stay focused, using your time and talent, until you feel totally congruent with your desire.

My martial arts instructor, Sensei David Harris, would always share with me the importance of daily activities towards a desired goal.  If, for any reason, you feel that you are at a plateau you can continue your level of progression by reading a book on the subject that you are pursuing, or you can watch a video on the related subject, maybe you can attend a seminar or you could mentally rehearse your desired outcome for your success.

It is important is to do something, regardless of how small or how large. By taking action daily you create the motion towards your desired achievement.

Stay focused on the end result, be realistic in your approach, and take a step-by-step progression that leads you to your ultimate goal.

There is a Hawaiian saying: “When the surf is high, go surfing and when the water is calm, wax your board.”

Timing is of the essence when riding the wave of momentum. If you hop on too early, you might crash. If you hop on too late, you miss the wave. By timing the wave correctly, you enjoy the ride all the way to the beach.
