TOTAL FREEDOM WITH POLARIS GLOBAL

Free Your Mind!

Free Your Mind!

Posted by Leoni B.

I never really understood what total freedom was. We always speak about financial freedom and/or time freedom. But I realized there was one more – MIND FREEDOM.

Since being involved with Polaris Global, growing my business and reaching my goals, I have also created “mind space”.

Instead of always thinking about money and bills and the what if’s… I can now think about how I can assist others – organise a fund raiser to support a charity or how I can get involved in saving abused animals across the world.

When I wake up at night, I am not worried about money, but I am filled with such gratitude for what I have with Polaris Global and everyone involved.

The Power of Polaris Global!

Join Me On the Path!

Join Me On the Path!

Posted by Kelly A.

You know i went through stages of my life, with it’s ups and downs, the good and bad, traumatic losses, not being able to deal with certain situations and not knowing really what i wanted in my life, I wanted to know who i was. Since working with Beyond Freedom Evolution i have found that i can work through the rough patches of my past, filter through what needed and still needs to be filtered in my life now, work through everyday life, and my goals for the future.

Polaris Global has shown me direction and a purpose to fill my life’s goals,to achieve results that i haven’t imagined ever possible. I have learnt so much in the last 6 months then i have in the last 8 years and i thank Polaris’s community of beautiful caring people, our visionary Shane Krider and Rachel for her priceless knowledge and their love they give to everyone involved in our community. I’m feeling more Empowered and now live life with purpose.

If you are ready for guidance, if you are ready to deal with those issues from the past that still linger, if you have lost your way and feel angry and frustrated with life, if you are wanting to find out who you are, why things happen and don’t happen in your life, then i encourage you to embrace the power of Polaris Global and Beyond Freedom Evolution.

Having the Courage to ‘Fail’

Unstoppable!

Unstoppable!

Posted by Phil P.

I have found that most people do not fail in life or in business because they fail at what they do. Rather it is because they didn’t have the courage to even start something new and risk the failure OR they didn’t learn from a past failure and keep on going.

Unfortunately it’s too easy to live by the motto: If at first you don’t succeed, don’t admit that you tried! I have been amazed this year how often feelings of embarrassment or inadequacy have risen up in me when I have fallen flat after periods of discouragement associated with missing goals. The great thing about listening to all the Leaders in our Polaris community is hearing over and over again how many times they ‘fail’ in their daily activities, and just keep going strongly to their next success.

The daily live calls, the recorded calls in the back office, and the BFE program are all so vital to us achieving our goals because they continue to reinforce that success does not just come about by avoiding failure. It comes about by massive action, by pursuing a passion, and by finding the guts to risk ‘failure’ over and over again.

So thank you to the many successful Leaders who contribute so regularly to our environment. I really appreciate you all.

Where the Magic Happens

Doing Something A Little More!

Doing Something A Little Extra!

Posted by Debbie P.

I truly believe there is a knowing deep inside each and every one of us, that when we truly truly desire something and we identify that something as our goal, we take the steps of making decisions and taking action toward our goal, to really make our desires come true, that knowing is that we each do something special, a little more, something a little different and extra to make that dream, desire, goal POP and become reality.

Our Polaris Global training calls continually push the barriers of our thinking and what we know is possible for ourselves. We are all here because deep inside we know. If anyone has ever made something happen, that you had no idea of how it was going to be, but you just went for it anyway, if you really apply some thought there will be something more that you did, you may have changed something slightly, you may have got uncomfortable in some way to create more, you may have changed your thoughts, your focus. What were you focussed on when you had your goal in sight, what was your intention, what was your knowing?

Post our alchemy call this morning, I see crystal clear, each and every time I have achieved a major goal, I had my vision, shifted my thinking, applied laser sharp focus, eliminated the obstacles and acted with pure intention to consciously bring my goal to reality – this is where the magic happens.

For me now, first key is realisation, next is to practise this, get better and better at focussing on the picture, having absolute intention, taking the actions and consciously creating what I want.

What goal have you achieved that you know you applied something extra – was it intention?

INVENT YOURSELF: A BFE EXAMPLE OF BEING UNSTOPPABLE

And ... What's Your Excuse?

And … What’s Your Excuse?

Posted by Bart (Michael B.)

On the Beyond Freedom Evolution call, Invent Yourself was discussed, specifically how a person who invents themselves can become unstoppable. The first principle was “to know clearly what you want and don’t stop until you create the desired results.”

At the request of many participants, below is the list of noteworthy people shared on the call who invented themselves by being unstoppable.

· He applied and was denied two times to the prestigious University of Southern California film school. Steven Spielberg
· He started his dream at 65! He got a social security check for only $105 and was mad. Instead of complaining he did something about it. 1009 “No’s” before he found an investor. Col. Sanders
· His parents wanted him to have a normal job. So he tried carpentry but hated it. He was a terrible short order cook. He waited tables but couldn’t open a bottle of wine. Failures did not stop him. Mark Cuban, Shark Tank & Owner of the Dallas Mavericks Basketball Team
· Twelve publishers rejected the manuscript. A year later, Bloomsbury, agreed to publish, but insisted there was no money in children’s books. JK Rowling
· 27 different publishers rejected his first book. He was told he did not have a future in children’s books. Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
· His first book was rejected 30 times. He threw it in the trash. His wife retrieved it and encouraged him to resubmit it. The rest is history. Stephen King
· Rejected by many record labels, they were told “guitar groups are on the way out…you have no future in show business.” the Beatles
· His first seven businesses failed before he had one succeed. RH Macy
· After struggling with a rough and abusive childhood, she was fired from her television reporter job and was told she was “unfit for TV.” Oprah Winfrey
· He spent 27 years in prison. He tragically lost two sons. Many considered him a terrorist. A persistent person, he harmonized a country and impacted a world. Nelson Mandela 1918-2013
· Widely regarded as a B movie star, her drama instructors didn’t feel she could make it, telling her to try another profession. Lucille Ball
· In his first screen test, a MGM director noted “Can’t act. Can’t sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little.” Fred Astaire (Astaire kept his first screen test note to remind him of where he began.)
· Fired from the Grand Ole Opry after one performance, he was told, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere, son. Go back to drivin’ a truck.” Elvis
· She was told by modeling agents that she should consider begin a secretary; she wasn’t what the public wanted. Marilyn Monroe
· He struggled in school, failed 6th Grade, and was defeated in every election until he became Prime Minister at age 62. Winston Churchill
· His cartoons were rejected by his high school yearbook staff and he was later rejected to work with Walt Disney. His work was considered subpar. Charles Schultz
· He got fired from his cashier job at 7-Eleven because he talked too much to the customers. Hugh Jackman
· It started as a “noodle maker,” shipping dried Korean fish, vegetables, and noodles to customers in Manchuria and Beijing. Today, a powerhouse electronics industry. Samsung
· If Walt Disney quit after his theme park concept was trashed 302 times, there would be no Disneyland.
· If Howard Schultz gave up after being turned down by banks 242 times, there would be no Starbucks.

The challenge was also made to add “I am unstoppable” to the beginning or end of your North Star. How does that make you feel? Are you unstoppable?

GRATITUDE – THE GOOD AND THE BAD!

CAPTION

Stronger And More Resilient Than Ever Before!

Posted by Robyn J.

One of our 6 daily activities is Gratitude. The dictionary meaning of the word is ‘being thankful; readiness to return kindness’. When I commenced my journey with BFE & the 6 daily steps I thought this particular step was the easiest one, because surely we all know we need to be thankful for our family & friends, our health, our homes & having food & water whenever we want. But it really is a lot more than that.

What I have learnt with BFE is that gratitude has to be part of your journey! So for most of us who have never had a Business for ourselves before, on a daily basis, we encounter roadblocks & obstacles. Many of the roadblocks for me have been regarding how to lodge an ad, how talk to a prospect, & how to manage my time & stay disciplined. And at the start, I was overwhelmed with how many decisions I had to make. Where to market, what to write in my ad, who I wanted to attract to my ad, how many hours per day would I work on my Business & what budget I would allocate to my Business… And Im sure, like a few of my Polaris colleagues,I made a few errors of judgement along the way!!

But this is how we learn, how we develop our skills, how we find out what works & what does not work…what we are good at & what we need to strive to improve our skills in. If I had not had some of the lessons I have incurred so far, I doubt I would be able to handle & manage some of the decisions & choices I am making in my Business today. Interestingly, I have had two ‘tricky’ prospects who really challenged me & one in particular I made the decision to automatically hand over to my mentor, & that whole situation made me realise that I am stronger & more resilient than before.

So when I now write what I am grateful for, not only do I put the “wins” down but I also write down the things that were challenging for me, because it is those things that will create & develop my character & make me a better Business owner. My point of view is widening & my perspective is more flexible as I listen to my heart & my head & the invaluable feedback & training that we get here in the Polaris community. At the end of the day, each one of us has our own journey & road to travel & the more I develop, as a person & as an Associate of Polaris I know that I will be grateful for every step of the way!

“Just do it – AGAIN!”

Polaris: Everyday People!

If At First You Don’t Succeed …

Posted by Kirsty M.

This morning on the M8 Mindset Call, Shane Krider was talking about some word tracks that sounded familiar to me… “I won’t do that again!”

This is another phrase that we pick up from somewhere throughout life & then loosely apply to a lot of different scenarios, often incorrectly.

Realising this was a familiar one to me, I took some time to think about where I would have picked up this phrase & in my experience it reminds me of getting in trouble when I was little & hearing the words “Well you won’t do that again will you?!” Usually from a cranky grandparent!

It made me think about how I have said that to my kids and how I can rephrase it.

What it means for me now as an adult is that when I have made a mistake or something hasn’t turned out the way I expected, eg. An amazing new marketing campaign has been a flop, or I’ve tried a new exercise routine only to injure myself (I have loads of examples)! Hearing those words “I won’t do that again” makes me feel like I wanted to avoid being in that situation again, at all costs, just so that I didn’t end up looking silly or getting into trouble. But if I try again – at the marketing or the exercise – who am I going to get in trouble with if I fall flat on my face again?! No one! If I don’t try again, and change / tweak what I need to, then I’m going to be in BIG trouble with my higher self – and I’m more afraid of her that’s for sure!

Where have you told yourself “I won’t do that again” & realized you were just holding yourself back from making a successful move?

BECOME FIRST, THEN ATTRACT!

The First Step

The First Step

Posted by Phil P.

It’s been said that, “To attract leaders, we must be leaders ourselves. To attract committed people, we must be committed ourselves. Instead of wishing others were different, we should go to work on ourselves first. If we become first, then we can attract.”

Many of us want some extraordinary things from our Polaris business, but our self-image limits us on what we actually receive.

Until we begin to think and act like the person who has the things we desire, we’ll never attract those things. Wealthy people don’t think and act the way they do because they are wealthy. They have wealth because they think and act in a manner that is conducive to attracting it.

When we stop just working on what it is we’re trying to get, and start also working on changing the way we see ourselves, only then will we get what it is we want. When we change our thinking, our results will change.

Beyond Freedom Evolution is helping me to rebuild my self-image after some life knocks. It is helping me to make these changes in my thinking, and that’s why it is vital for me to grow and develop, and attract what it is I desire in my life through this amazing opportunity.

THE GAME OF LIFE … WHAT IS YOUR GAME?

Taking My Life To The Hoop!

Taking My Life To The Hoop!

Posted by Bart (Michael B.)

Recently, Shane Krider posed the question, “In the game of life, what game are you playing?”

There are many answers to this question. Some may feel “Wheel of Fortune,” while others think “Jeopardy.” Others may consider board games such as “Ouija” or the game of “Life.”

When Shane put that question out there, my first thought was “Basketball.” I didn’t choose the game because I’m tall, it was just the first thought that came to mind. I then wondered why it was such an immediate response.

As a kid, I lived for the moment I got home from school. I would run outside and begin playing hoops. There were no other kids around, just me. My imagination placed me in every “game-saving” scenario possible. I played for every major college in the US and was shooting the game-winning basket in every championship.

It has been years since I bounced a ball, must less shot a basket. The last basket I remember making was at Dollywood where I won a huge bear for my efforts. (I still have the bear.)

So why did basketball come to mind?

When I began to break it down, it made total sense. When on the court it is just the 5 of you on the team working together. Each person’s individual efforts contribute to the overall cause and success. Jim Rohn says we are the average of the 5 people we most often associate with. The same is true for a basketball team. It is our collective efforts that create an average – the final score.

But, there is more.

You fluctuate from the offense to the defense, just as in life, with the other team’s defense posing obstacles and your defense creating barriers to limitations. And, then there is the free throw. As in life, we are often give one shot. It is the ice water in our veins and the ability to overcome distractions to create desired results.

I must confess, I do celebrate “March Madness” here in the US. The month of March is when the college basketball nation begins their extended tournament play to crown a national champion. It is when you see efforts become successes and dreams become reality. The foundation is a belief in yourself and knowing that with coaching, support, and the law of attraction bringing together like-minded people, unparalleled feats can be achieved.

So, what is your game?

WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE BUSINESS REALLY?

Flexible and Portable!

Flexible and Portable!


Posted by Kym K.

Recently I discovered a new distinction for myself around the question of what does a lifestyle business really mean. Here’s my take on it. It harps back to my why – one of the reasons (apart from the money and the meaningfulness) I got started with Polaris Global is because of the portability and flexibility. I wanted to be flexible to work the hours that suit me and my family, to work to my own schedule around the other aspects of my life that are also important to me.

A big mistake people can make when thinking about a Lifestyle Business is that somehow they get confused with the work load and imagine it to be a “ do very little and reap the reward business” babbow – that is a massive misinterpretation. Lifestyle means flexibility and portability to work where and when you choose, but it does include work/effort, albeit mostly enjoyable tasks and the fact that you do it from your home office with no commute and no dress code is a part of the deal.

Thinking over my own interpretation of Lifestyle Business I discovered a bit of a limitation in my thinking that had me saying to myself – I better fit this in to ….. hours or I am not being authentic – then I looked at my goals and thought that is insane thinking and quickly course corrected my mindset to Ill do whatever it takes.

What does a Lifestyle Business Mean to you?
