Zero Limits His Presence

by Dale Shumaker

Zero Limits by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len was somewhat of a surprise to see on the business book lists. His discovery of Dr. Hew Len's (PhD) methods in the theory of Ho'oponopono caught Vitale's earnest attention, curiosity with some skepticism.

How can someone heal others they cannot see? Dr. Hew Len was doing this in a mental hospital known for having incurable violent patients. He had an unbelievable track record and success rate. Joe Vitale had to find this person and find out his secret. Vitale is developing a following on how to use Spiritual principles in marketing and attracting business based on these principles. He found Dr. Hew Len a cutting edge practitioner of a new level for him.

How did Dr. Hew Len do it? Dr. Hew Len uses an ancient Hawaiian treatment called Ho'oponopono. It means to cause perfection. So errors in life arise from thoughts that are tainted by tainted memories of the past. We must remove these from our conscious and more important those we don't know about which are in our subconscious minds. When Dr. Hew Len looked at the client files, he didn't work on his patients, instead he worked on himself. He never met them in person to evaluate or try to treat.

As he worked on himself, they began to improve and heal.
Here's his thoughts on this approach.
"Take total responsibility for your life. It is your life... everything in your life is your responsibility. You participate in the entire world's creation."
"100% responsibility.. accepting it all, even people who enter your life and their problems. Because their problems are your problems. They are in your life, and if you take full responsibility for your life, you then take full responsibility for what they are experiencing."

You don't fix them by trying to fix them.
You focus on continually fixing yourself.
"So transform yourself, so the rest of the world changes too." Using Ho'oponopono, energy is released to these painful thoughts or errors which cause imbalance or disease. As you heal, those around you heal too.To heal you, clean yourself. As you clean yourself, those in contact with you are healed as well.

His method is so simple, we may find it hard to really believe in it. But he used it to literally clean out one of the toughest mentally ill facilities in Hawaii. Therapists there lasted maybe six months. The violent nature of its patients was extreme and not treatable by anyone. During 3 years, Dr. Hew Len spent most of his time reading the patient files and cleansing himself, it eventually became a very normal functional facility.

As he reviewed each case, he addressed each problem as his own and accepted that person's problem as one of his too. So he simply said time after time while in meditation:
"I Love You."
"I'm sorry."
"Please forgive me."
"Thank you."

He calls this cleaning. By constantly cleaning our self, our environment improves, and others are healed that we know of. We invite the Divine who takes us to "zero" ... zero is totally the Divine. When in "zero", transformation happens all around us.

Still sounds a little simplistic and a little short of real. But his track record in using his method dramatically proves otherwise... it works outstandingly. Ho'oponopono is a process for repentance (I'm sorry) and forgiveness (please forgive me), when we love the Divine, accept ourselves and love ourselves and others. This puts the healing process in motion for us and others we know.

Dr. Hew Len states that it has to be constant. You clean, clean, clean and do it continuously. Cleaning is thinking, reflecting, meditating all the time on "I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me, and thank you."

"What affects us, affects others is memory, especially that which is embedded in our subconscious. Love, repentance and forgiveness is the only way to clean these out of our system. It cleans what we don't see, but is there. When we clean, we clean these memories which limit us.

"You are always working from memory or inspiration. Memory is thinking; inspiration is allowing." Going to "Zero" into the Divine "allows" healing to us and others. It creates the energy that heals us and all around us. When memory is converted to Zero by Divinity in one subconscious mind, it is converted to zero in all subconscious ALL of them. "You can appeal to your creator to cancel these memories to zero in your subconscious"... thus others.

The concept of Ceeport emerges. Clean, erase, erase, return to port(zero). It's a non-stop cleaning process with all you meet... "I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you." Each phrase has relevance to the subconscious mind when directed by the conscious mind. That drives it to "zero" where Divine takes over. The Divine does this, not self, not ego, not thinking.

We must take memories, guilt out of the picture.

This method does that and heals us to deeper levels while Divine heals others. This method does not require planning or strategically figuring things out. Divine, when in the Divine or Zero, handles all things for us. Vitale says using this greatly increased his moving from being homeless to becoming a best-selling author, Internet marketing guru, and a multi-millionaire with no plan at all to get there.

Vitale goes on to summarize the process at the conclusion of Zero Limits. I must admit at first I spent a lot of time scratching my head as I read the book. But then what sounded too simple, I began seeing the depth of what was happening. Practicing this at the minimum affects your heart and attitude around others. In business, this would cure a lot of management, negotiating, marketing, customer service, teamwork problems, we face every day. Actually, it would revolutionize the processes we use.

If you "take responsibility for yourself first, and clean, clean, clean" amazingly others around you will be released from their problems... which may affect you.

Here's the key points from Vitale's summaries in the appendix (which may be good to read first, then read the rest of the book). Just saying "I love you" over and over is not some magical formula to this "awakening." You progress through three stages: "You're a victim," "You're in control," to "You're awakening." It's about coming to the point that your ego or emotions give way to "surrender to a greater power. You're not able to control anything."

Appendix A: Zero Limits Basic Principles
1. You don't have a clue what's going on.
"It is impossible, consciously and subconsciously to be aware of everything going on around you."
2. You don't have control over everything."
You can't control it all and it's an ego to think you can make the world into your bidding."
3. You can heal whatever comes your way."
What's in your radar you can heal."
4. You are 100% responsible for all you experience."
All you can do is take responsibility for it, which means accept it, own it, and love it."
5. Your ticket to Zero Limits is saying the phrase "I love you."
"Saying it to the Divine cleans memories in the subconscious and moves you into the miracle zone of Zero Limits."
6. Inspiration is more important than intention. "Intention is a toy of the mind; inspiration is a directive of the Divine."

Appendix B: How to Heal Yourself (or anyone else) and Discover Health, Wealth, and Happiness.
First say "I'm Sorry" and "Please forgive me." By this you acknowledge something has gotten in your body/mind system. From then, say "Thank you" and "I love you." You express gratitude and "I Love you" reconnects you to the Divine.

Ho'oponopono has a modern version called Self I-Dentity.

Go to Zero... interesting use of terms.
The Hebrew writer in the Bible speaks of the privilege we now have of entering the very Presence of God.
The Most Holy place He calls it. Think of this. We can go right into the very core, the epicenter, of Who God is, all He is, and everything about Him.

"We can boldly enter heaven's Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God's house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water."
(Hebrews 10:19,20, NLT)
"Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you."
(Ezekiel 36:25,26, NLT)

It is here where we go through perfect cleansing. The Spirit cleans, cleans, cleans, as we enter the Most Holy Place. To enter the most Holy Place, the actual presence of God, we have to be perfectly clean. Jesus Blood does that, so we have the perfection necessary for this. This progression of thought of
I Love you,
I'm Sorry,
Forgive me,
and Thank you...
is so much of what Jesus was expressing. There is value in repentance and seeking forgiveness. Jesus said that the person He listens to is the one who is humble and merciful. "But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, 'O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner."
(Luke 18:13, NLT)
In this state of complete humility He is close to us. He said to Love Him with all your heart.
"'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment."
(Matthew 22:37,38, NLT)

And to forgive those around you, including yourself, and all his forgiveness will be there for you."If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you."
(Matthew 6:14, NLT)
This includes forgiving yourself and the subconscious guilt the subconscious mind wants to hold you to. Let the Spirit release this from you and let Him set you free.

The Hebrew writer says to enter His rest.
"For only we who believe can enter his rest.
So God's rest is there for people to enter.
So let us do our best to enter that rest.
But if we disobey God, as the people of Israel did, we will fall.
(Hebrews 4:3,6,11, NLT)

When in His rest, He does all things. If we don't, all we do will fail. In His strength, miracles happen. In our strength very little can happen compared to His Great Power. Our dependence is totally on Him.

The writers of Zero Limits express the same. He does all the healing and when we rest totally in Him, God, His Spirit, He does it all.
We simply Rest in the Spirit.

The Scriptures say we are all one and that The Spirit of God penetrates all people.
"For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all."
(Ephesians 4: 4-6, NLT)

Being connected to everyone, we affect everyone in our Spirit. In our Spirit is where the Power is... beyond what we can even think and imagine. We must just enter into the Most Holy Place, His eternally, universe affecting Presence.

So what we do in Spirit, in His Rest, In His Presence, is the hub of where all the power is. And it affects everyone.

So go on within His Power, based on His Promises. He does not remember your sins, your failures, shortcomings, but gives you His Spirit of Power, Love, endurance and tolerance. So if He can forget your shortcomings, we need to allow Him to erase them from our minds and subconscious too.

In His Presence He will do that. We should not deliberately do wrong... Read, reflect on all of Hebrews 8-10.;&version=51

He elaborates on that. Don't refuse to ignore the Spirit as He prompts you on the right path each day. Live in the Spirit and let Him guide you, and work on your behalf.

The Spirit, is powerful, does all things and works for you. He loves you, you love others as He loves you ...say to Him... I am sorry, forgive me and then, thank Him. Take responsibility for yourself. If each of us would do this all would go well for everyone, and in all of our interactions.

The more you Love others from your heart, and work on yourself, in His Presence, the more in tune in Spirit you will become and walk more and more in His power. You will see your prayers for others answered miraculously.

Go to Zero... enter His Presence which has been made your right! Give up to Spirit, fall back into His arms of the Spirit's core. Let go of worry or how things will work out. They just will as His Spirit will see to it, personally, that they will.

Relax, rest your soul in His. All we must do is Enter His Presence. His Spirit is beyond what our minds can comprehend. So we don't use our minds to See Spirit Work. We must simply enter His presence.
Say... I Love You...Rest in Loving Him.
Ask Him to forgive.
Tell Him we are sorry where we know we have not done things His way.
And then be grateful... as the Bible says to Praise Him.

Let Him Do the rest.
Love Him and rest in Him.

Where Have All The Leaders Gone? ...shaking things up

by Dale Shumaker

Where Have All The Leaders Gone? by Lee Iacocca.
Lee Iacocca made history when he persuaded congress to support American Free Enterprise by bailing out Chrysler. His abilities of influence and business ingenuity are unquestionable. In Where Have All The Leaders Gone?, Iacocca shows a lot of his business leadership toughness.

When things aren't right you don't stay the course, he proclaims. He covers many issues that need dwelt with in the United States that aren't being dwelt with. Iacocca challenges what Leadership should be. Here's his take on qualities of leadership.

Iacocca's "nine Cs of Leadership" which he also uses as a gauge to test the strengths and weaknesses of the leaders we have now.

You need to be curious, listen to people and consider what all people are saying... not just your inner circle. Great leaders are voracious readers and consider many ideas. They are constantly exploring new information and its potential merit.

Go out on the limb, try something different and think outside the box. Leadership is about managing change. Things change and you got to be creative.

Face reality and tell the truth. Don't always be selling something to convince others, but let people know the reality of what it is. Tell the truth even if it is painful.

Know the difference between right and wrong. Have the guts to do the right thing. "If you want to test a man's character, give him power," said Abraham Lincoln.

Courage is not posturing and bravado. It's courage to sit down at the table and talk. Courage takes a position even when it can cost you.

A fire in your belly, having passion wanting to really get something done... that's conviction. Do you vote yourself a raise when you have done nothing for it? That's not leadership.

It's the quality that makes people want to follow you. It's the ability to inspire. It's following a leader because you trust him.

You got to know what you're doing and surround yourself with people who know what they're doing. A leader is a problem solver, who is good at it.

Common Sense
In Iacocca's early career his regional manager once told him,"The only thing you got going for you as a human being is your ability to reason and your common sense."

"Here's what management is about:
Pick good people and set right priorities. It's that simple."
Iacocca speaks his voice about the way our country works now and what he sees as solutions. He takes time to compare his leadership principles to today's political candidates.The way to solve problems and differences is to sit down and talk about them... not be reclusive with your own little group and yell put downs to those who see it differently.

Pay for performance is missing in top-level pay. Stacking your deck by just having hand picked board members around you is another problem. What's missing in leadership... they should be asking the hard questions, making others accountable, instead of having directors selling the CEO's ideas for him and not representing the stockholders.

Innovation can be much more important than size. Big companies get sluggish. It takes constant infusion of ideas and leadership to prevent that.

Leadership to Rebuild (Iacocca's signature ability)
Create a sense of urgency. It takes everyone. Communication is the lubricant that makes things run.
Assemble a team. The quality of the team will make or break you... top talent in key positions.
Share the sacrifice. You must demonstrate equality of sacrifice. Iacocca when rebuilding Chrysler, asked everyone to pitch in and help. He took a salary of $1 (was paid based on stock performance).
Simplify! Make your products simple and distinctive enough so others see their value and distinguishing differences. You can have too many models.
Shuck the losers. What you poured tons of money in, you may have to give up. If it's not right (when it may have been at one time) shuck it.
Follow the market. Who are they. What will suit them. Build what they want.
Lighten up. The gas prices are dictating for smaller cars. Detroit is slow on hybrid development. If we don't come up with some real creativity here, Toyota and Honda will take this market.
Lock the big three in a room... companies, the union, and the government. There must be across-the-board collaboration to make this comeback work.

Changes are needed in America. Iacocca takes a look at what he sees as major areas... the war, oil, free trade, cars, the middle class, blame game and no one taking responsible to change it. We are too fat for our own good. All must sacrifice to save and rebuild America. We are lagging on math and science skills.The countries of South Korea, Japan, Singapore own this scholarship.

Teachers should be more valued in America, and developed more. They have too many other things distracting them from the teaching skill.

Be a reader. We all need to grow, begin learning more by reading more. It is an informational based world. Stay reading to keep up. It takes brain power by many to lead well. It takes reading a lot to fuel our brain power.

In summary, Iacocca identifies three skills. "You need someone to teach you how to walk and talk and be one. You need a mentor." Iacocca's mentor taught him...
Optimism. No matter how bad things get find the silver lining.
"I never knew the meaning of the word impossible."

Common Sense. Good ideas are also common sense ideas. This is the test of great ideas.
Discipline. Got an idea, put it in writing. His motto is "put it in writing, put it in writing."

Love and courage. Women are the best teachers of this. Now get off the golf course, do something. Give back what you've gained and know-how to rebuild what can be so much greater. All hands on deck are needed now.

Iacocca is calling for re-building America. We need to shake a few things up, straighten a few things up. "It's a mess," he says. But he says we all need to sacrifice to do this. We need courage, optimism and to be disciplined in our actions... we can do it.

The Spirit of this is faith, hope, courage and love. As God told Haggai, we need to walk in His courage:

"Does anyone remember this house—this Temple—in its former splendor? How, in comparison, does it look to you now? It must seem like nothing at all! 4 But now the Lord says: Be strong, Zerubbabel. Be strong, Jeshua son of Jehozadak,the high priest. Be strong, all you people still left in the land. And now get to work, for I am with you, says the Lord of Heaven's Armies. 5 My Spirit remains among you, just as I promised when you came out of Egypt. So do not be afraid."
(Haggai 2: 3-5, NLT)

The Temple of God is in ruins. The Temple is the Body of Christ Today and our Spiritual Relationship as One in Spirit. As A. W. Tozer points out in The Pursuit of God, we have left out the important parts of Spirit in our lives and hold on to things. We worship the gifts God gives us more than Him and the Sacred nature of His Spirit in us (personally and as a group). His temple is in ruins because we are focusing, desiring Him for the wrong things. So He will shake things up until we come around.

"Why are you living in luxurious houses while my house lies in ruins? 5 This is what the Lord of Heaven's Armies says: Look at what's happening to you! 6 You have planted much but harvest little. You eat but are not satisfied. You drink but are still thirsty. You put on clothes but cannot keep warm. Your wages disappear as though you were putting them in pockets filled with holes!"
(Haggai 1: 4-6, NLT)

We have left His House, the Temple, as the Scriptures point out we are His Temple, in ruins. We seek the good life of this world and not the Profound life of inner Spirit of God who desires to walk with us like Adam originally. And He sent Jesus to reinstate that blessing, the greatest blessing we can have.

Look at our society... we are rich but feel so dissatisfied with our lives, have a high depression level as a country. We are wealthy but think we have so little. We never seem to get satisfaction from anything we do. And we spend more than we make, regardless how much we make. It has been reported that many making over $100,000 a year live paycheck to paycheck. We just can't get enough and spend more.

The whole time our Temple is going into ruins as
we run after the "things" around us (as Tozer points out)
and not the inner Presence of God's Spirit in us.

Iacocca says it will take a major shake up... God through Haggai said that too...
"For this is what the Lord of Heaven's Armies says: In just a little while I will again shake the heavens and the earth, the oceans and the dry land. 7 I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. I will fill this place with glory, says theLord of Heaven's Armies. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven's Armies. 9 The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the L ord of Heaven's Armies. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the Lord of Heaven's Armies, have spoken!"
(Haggai 2: 6-9, NLT)

The good news is after the shaking we can expect something so much better. Tozer continues to note that Abraham was asked to give up Isaac. But why? He worshiped his son more than God. He worshipped the blessing more than God who blessed him. So God again tested Abraham. He asked him to give up his son. Abrabram who had unmovable faith in God, trusted God, even in bringing Isaac back to life if needed. But what happened after He gave up all on earth for all of God... God fulfilled His promise with Abraham and made him father of many nations. Abraham still had all the cattle and land, but it was not his prize possession. Having the Spirit of God was his Prize possession.

God wants this of us too.
We don't sacrifice and give up what is not important. Building the Temple of God in us and Us as a group is what is important. These other things are there but we don't worship them, we may still have them, and God may give us many more. What we fear losing, we won't. When our heart's change in what we love and are connected to, we have the Spirit that guides us in the walk in Spirit.

With Him, with courage, we do what is right, because he guides the circumstance; faith walks with us and we love freely all around us. His peace permeates our whole being and we live genuinely fulfilled in true Righteousness. "I am with you, says the Lord!"

"So the Lord sparked the enthusiasm, and the enthusiasm of the whole remnant of God's people.They began to work on the house of their God, the Lord of Heaven's Armies."
(Haggai 1:13,14, NLT)

Here's our mission as business people. We are to get on to rebuilding the Temple. It's exciting and noteworthy. It's possible because The Spirit of God is with us. He is calling us to make it right again, for His Spirit and all His Glory to inhabit it.

That's us. That's our businesses. That's our homes. This is the Temple God is calling out for His Glory. Give up your stuff and the not so important things we hold on to... for His Glory. His Spirit wants to inhabit us gloriously, like never before. Get on to the work of Building the Kingdom of God in the Marketplace.

Jesus is with us... and it will be Done !

Creating A Cash Machine... and more

by Dale Shumaker

The Millionaire Maker's Guide to Creating a Cash Machine for Life
by Loral Langemeier is an action and learning as you go strategy.

Real wealth she says is made in business. You can learn how
. Done right, learning as you go, you can create a cash machine for life. Loral's concept features using your skills, finding an idea compatible with those skills, finding another business model you can adapt as yours. In 120 days, the goal is to have the cash machine in place.

In the first seven weeks develop these areas:


1. Discover skills you already have 
2. Generate ideas based on your skills 
3. Model a similar business 
4. Test sale the idea through revenue modeling from the business model 
5. Design a strategic plan for your cash machine (very important step) 
6. Create a team of those who can do what needs to be done where your skills are lacking
7. Develop a marketing and sales strategy.

The concept evolves around getting started and learning more of what you need to know as you go.

As you are going, you'll need to learn the Entrepreneurial Skill Set.

Once you start making money you must keep developing, so your cash machine grows. Loral is not about making just $100,000 a year, but building a business that grows to a perpetual $1 million company.... a cash machine for life.

The Entrepreneur Skill Set

Management: Business takes vision, vision takes leadership.
Marketing: It's continuous and is more than just advertising.
Sales: Something everyone needs to do well in business for expansive growth
Operations: Systems need built for accounting, database tracking/analysis, tech process, with legal and tax strategies.
Finance: Profit/loss; asset/liability; cash flow analysis/strategies are essential.
Accelerating: When up and running the business needs accelerated, built right with creation of ancillary products and services. 

Finding Your Skill Set
Examine everything you've ever done, were good at, and naturally motivated you. Loral has 9 questions to help you find this. What's most important is what you know and are good at. This is the best place to start.

The Gap analysis
: where you are now. Where you want to go. The gap between.

That's your first goal. What skills do you have to make money?
After looking at school, all jobs, hobbies, clubs, chores, business, you will find the skills you have, skills you are going to need, skills you will learn.

Qualities of the entrepreneur
you'll need to build as you build the business: courage, resourcefulness (creative problem solving), perspective, initiative, persistence, flexibility.

You learn as you earn
: organization, energy management (beyond time management), driving outcome, quantitative and qualitative analysis, communication, team building, intuition.

Most important in this process is learning the skill of working on your business instead of working in your business. Plus developing the special skill of Future Pacing. That is looking into the future to what needs to be done and working as you go strategically, systematically toward greater market share of markets that have doors coming open; doing the right thing at the right time.

Idea Generation

From your skill set, what idea revolves around your strengths. The goal, according to Loral, is to get into an on going operation immediately so you can start learning the entrepreneurship skills.
The right idea includes

1. What do you want?
2. What are you committed to?
3. What is possible?

Analysis is important but not over analysis
. It doesn't have to be perfect, but thought through enough to start. Business is a lot of figuring a lot out as you go. The 120 day plan gets you beyond the analysis into action.

You create a 120 day schedule with monthly goals, and weekly tasks. Make a plan, detail the plan, commit to the plan and do it in a 120 day schedule. Loral emphasizes emphatically the importance of written schedules... over these 120 days (4 months) in detail.

Look for ideas in market opportunities, trends, whispers, happenings elsewhere you can do there, trade magazines, TV, Internet, biz brokers, yellow pages, ads and eyes and ears open.

Keep it simple, not too original (too new may not be accepted), gaps in the supply and demand.

Loral suggests you can build a business, fix an existing business or buy a business. When buying, it should be one that is doing well.

Modeling--Finding a form to follow

This one feature of Loral's is what gets you going while learning the entrepreneur skills. You find someone, somewhere who is doing what you want to do, is doing it well, and will help you. It may be several hundred miles away, but this will give you a model to follow. Loral guides you step by step on how to approach a person and what to specifically ask. Before you do, check out the Internet, your local library, small biz administration, local college, bookstore.

Ironically, some who have businesses may not know how their business works. If you can't find a direct model, many may be a parallel in how to do it that you can model. Locally, these (not competitive to you) may help you out more in your area.

Revenue Modeling shows how to create financial strategies to meet your goals. Loral says to define what you want, then come up with how you will do it. You may have to revise how you do it several times to get it into a Millionaire making formula. This is part of the process, but critical so you don't settle for less, and find the right one for you.

The Cash Machine Plan

Write it in one day. Outline:
The Concept... based on skills, what you know
Opportunity... unique selling proposition for product/service
Strategy... what will take it into reality
Team and Operations...who will fill them, how to do it.
Financials... break even analysis with profit/loss, cash flow
Future Pacing... other streams of income and when they will enter the picture
Revenue Model and Cash Flow analysis
Outline structures and systems for legal, accounting, tax and liabilities, marketing, database, information.

Build the Team

Find mentors, helpers, and specialized people. Pay equity or hire. Some you hire may come in later in an equity position. This is a good way to see if you work well together, before an equity position. Create ground work so you move from a do-it-all person to hiring support, creating an organization, teams for managing, marketing, sales, operations, finance.

Hiring first or using contract services may serve you well initially.

It is easier to shuffle hired services than to remove or buy out partners. Shuffling will be necessary as growth and new market development occurs.

Sales and Marketing

Target who to market to, your position toward them (how they see you and can differentiate you from others) and what will work best. Marketing is critical even if word of mouth takes off at first. More systematic, strategic marketing will be necessary later. Again, the Loral theme is to learn as you grow so you know how to create growth at more advanced levels.

Loral covers where to market, marketing models, driving traffic to you, customer differences, reach and frequency, becoming the product, and simple steps to getting started in selling.

To make selling work: Enthusiasm, customer service, understanding, narrative, staying focused, igniting interest, putting a proposition on the table, creating reality, creating a feel good environment, drive the outcome, think their thoughts.


As you grow the need to do this well increases dramatically. To make your cash machine live throughout your life, work flow and cash strategies are of the utmost importance. Consider location, best equipment/technology, systems flow of information and data, hiring right is critical, and your entity (legal) structure.

Finance requires regular monitoring of income statements, balance sheet, cash flow statement. Have trusted bookkeepers, but you must know what's going on and know what they're doing and why.

Maintain revenue tracking of forecasts and actual. Do this quarterly and break it down monthly. Review quarterly comparison of actual revenues. Make expense budgets for all areas... for the forecast and actual monthly. Know where you are, what you're doing and learn what can make a difference.

Work both sides... saving money and increasing the money in-take stream. The more you increase profits in each area (efficiency), the more you accelerate real income growth with sales volume.

Accelerate the Machine

1. Increase new customers or clients.
2. Increase number of repeat customers.
3. Increase multiple transactions per customer.
4. Team market through joint ventures.
5. Expand channels of distribution.
6. Increase marketing dollars to build marketing strategies.
7. Increase infrastructure (organization, work force).
8. Seed development and support execution.

The Cash Machine starts with your skills, your ideas, modeling someone's business and revenue system. Plan it out, team up for skill balance, market for results and grow by advancing entrepreneur skills. If you are starting a business or want to add another income stream to your business, want to switch from one that's not doing too great, or just got your first job out of school/college and want to begin an extra income stream (this is the best time),

The Millionaire Maker's Guide to Creating a Cash Machine for Life is a excellent resource guide.

Everyone in business and in jobs needs to create perpetual income streams. Loral's goal of doing at least 1 million is the target everyone should set their sights on.

Loral's website:

Start small... but start. Start with what you have and what you know. Do not despise small beginnings the prophet Zechariah says. We develop, mature and we constantly exceed everything accomplished before.

We do the same in Spirit. We are destined to exceed the initial explosion of Spirit we first heard about in the Acts in the Bible. These are seeds planted in the mind and heart to grow to what is next. We can expect more, much more.

Everything in our society has matured, progressed to greater levels from Century to Century. For example, transportation in just one hundred years has gone from trains, to cars, to airplanes, to space shuttles.

What we see recorded in history of great Spiritual feats was also just beginning stages of much greater things to come. The intention is that progress moves to more advanced levels. Some say what we see in Spirit now is as good as it gets. Even our natural minds can see this as not true. In Spirit we can expect much more, exponentially much more.

The Spirit is more advanced, sophisticated than anything that exists
. The Spirit has unlimited and unimaginable potential. Spirit is the very own power of God... as Paul said that the same Spirit that did the remarkable, raising Jesus from the dead, That Very Same Spirit of God lives in you.

How can we acquire this kind of Power
expressed on a regular basis in our own lives? Andrew Murray in The Experience of the Holy Spirit (Whitaker) shares this.

"The first disciples serve us as examples and forerunners on the way to fullness in the Spirit. What do we find in these disciples?"

"They were deeply attached to the Lord Jesus."
He desired to attach them to Himself. He wanted them to identify themselves with Him, as far as this was possible. By knowledge and intercourse, by love and obedience, they became inwardly knit to Him. This was the preparation for participating in the Spirit of His Glorification."

"They had left all for Jesus."

"In order to obtain possession of the kingdom within us, we must sell all that we have."

"He that forsakes not all that He has cannot be my disciple" (Jesus).

"The spirit of this world has penetrated so deeply into us that we do not observe it. We share in its desire for comfort and enjoyment, for self-pleasing and self-exaltation, without our knowing how impossible these things make for us to be filled with the Spirit."

"They had despaired utterly of themselves and all that is of man."

"Man has two great enemies... the world without, the self-life within. It is quite possible for a man to have much progress in forsaking the world while the self-life retains full dominion within him. On the other hand, there is nothing that brings so much blessing as entire despair of ourselves and all that is upon earth, in the way teaching us to turn our hearts only and wholly to heaven and to partake of the heavenly gift which comes thence."

"They received and held fast the promise of the Spirit given by the Lord Jesus."
"Jesus comforted His disciples with one promise... the mission of the Holy Spirit from heaven. This was to be better than His own bodily presence among them. It would be to them the full fruit and power of His redemption."

"He that believes in Me out of his heart shall flow rivers of living waters."

"For us also it is the one thing needful to hold fast that word; to set our whole desire upon the fulfillment of it; to lay aside all else, until we inherit the promise."

"They waited upon the Father until the performance of the promise came and they were filled with the Spirit."

"The gift of the Spirit is the most personal act of the Godhead; it is the gift of Himself into us. We have to revive it in the very closest personal contact with God. Every tree continues always to grow from the root out of which it first sprang. Let us turn back" and continue its growth to a great tree with many branches as Jesus said.

"Attachment to Jesus, the abandonment of everything in the world for Him, despair of self and of all help from man, holding on to the world of promise and then waiting on God, the Living God... this is the sure way of living in the joy and power of the Holy, Mighty, All-Powerful, Spirit."

"Now I will rescue you and make you both a symbol and a source of blessing... I am determined to bless Jerusalem and the people of Judah."
(Zechariah 8:13, 14, NLT)

This is an irrevocable Promise God made to us.

Zechariah also prophesied, "The weakest among them will be stronger than King David, the royal descendants will be like God, like an Angel of the Lord who goes before them."
(Zechariah 12: 8, NLT)

It is a promise
. We can expect it.

And there is more than we have ever seen.

Expect and receive it. It will develop in you.

As a seed, it may start small, but nurture it. It will mature to new, outstanding unexpected greatness. Constantly exceeding its last best performance.

There is a greater, more indepth indwelling lifestyle of Spirit.

It is greater than Moses, Elijah, Paul, Peter, and the early Apostles, and even Jesus... He even said so.

The greatest is yet to come.

Come in line with Spirit and it will be part of all of Us.
