In this article, I am publishing helpful tips from Michael Roach’s “The Diamond Cutter” Book. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how to make money effectively and be successful in any business.
According to the ancient Tibetan views of “premonition” or “intuition” that lead successful businessmen possessing them through the jungle of commercial transactions and market relations, there is a direct result of the maturation of the mental imprint. In turn, this formulation will give you some idea of what the germination of a strong imprint in your mind looks like. When people of this kind of warehouse encounter problems in their business, the solution comes to them all of a sudden, and they clearly see the right way out. In their mind there is no doubt, no unnecessary questions.
Typical business problems and their effective solutions
1. FINANCES OF THE COMPANY ARE NOT STABLE, INCOME ALL TIME WILL DOWN
More willingly share your income with those who helped you earn it, and make sure that you don’t weld a penny in any way in the left way. Remember, the amount of the amount you share with others is not as important as your willingness to always share what you have earned, even if it is not so much.
2. CAPITAL INVESTMENTS DO NOT PAY OUT: FOR EXAMPLE, PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT, COMPUTERS OR TRANSPORT QUICKLY OUT OF DATE OR BECOME UNSECURABLE
Stop envious of other entrepreneurs and other people’s business. Go about your business: focus on making your own company innovative, creative, and alert. Do not be upset about the success of others.
3. YOUR POSITION IN THE COMPANY IS UNSTABLE; YOU SEEMS THAT YOU LOSE AUTHORITY
Be careful not to be arrogant towards others; be equal with your subordinates, do not break away from the team, listen to those with whom you work.
4. YOU DISCOVER THAT IT IS NOT ABLE TO RECEIVE A PLEASURE FROM MONEY, OR FROM THINGS THAT ARE ACCESSIBLE TO YOU WITH SUCH LABOR
Do not envy the results of the efforts of others; stop comparing yourself to others, just enjoy what you have. Be your own master and value what you yourself have.
5. Regardless of how vigorously and interestingly your business develops, you will not lose the feeling that this is not enough; YOU HAVE A SENSE OF SATISFACTION
The solution is the same as in the previous case.
6. YOU SEEMS THAT MANAGEMENT AND PERSONNEL ARE ATTEMPTED TO FIGHT EACH OTHER
Be very careful to never engage in conversations that are explicitly or implicitly aimed at a split among people. And it doesn’t matter whether truth or falsehood sounds in these conversations, since your main intention is to make two people farther apart from each other than they were before you opened your mouth. “No, did you hear what she says about you?” “Do you know what he really thinks about your last project?” You know how this all happens. It is also important to remember that we are not necessarily talking about a print that has occurred in the last week or month. It can be much older and, of course, became the more, the longer you spent in your subconscious. The fact is that you may have long abandoned behavior, the imprint of which nevertheless still bears its harmful effects. Do not worry, continue treatment. You must tirelessly avoid repeating such behavior even in small things. It is you, because it is precisely such a special problem that annoys you, you should not allow yourself more than others to gossip. By the way, did you notice that the decision has almost nothing to do with going to these people and simply encouraging them to relate to each other better? The key to the solution here is that they are fighting each other in your presence, in your world, because the imprint is in your mind. Correct your life, your business, and your world by correcting yourself.
7. YOU ARE CONSTANTLY HAPPENING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR BUSINESS PARTNERS; YOU FIGHT AGAIN AGAIN AND AGAIN, regardless of how often you change them
The solution is exactly the same as in the previous case.
8. YOU ARE NOTING YOURSELF RESPONSE TO REVISE YOUR OWN DECISIONS; HESITATION IN BUSINESS IS DEVELOPING IN YOU
This problem has two reasons that are fundamentally different from each other: lack of concern for other members of the leadership and their subordinates; as well as the desire to impersonate buyers and suppliers for who you really are not at all. It is very difficult to avoid the latter in the deceptive world of modern business, where it is simply customary to splurge, but if you can still remain exactly who you really are, in short, if you are able to become a truly whole nature, then your own mind and business decisions will be clear, strong-willed and effective. And remember, the question is not that your customers, gradually becoming convinced of your ability to hit exactly the target, begin to trust you more in the future. The imprint of accurate hits grows into your conscious mind and literally creates a reality surrounding you in which people are honest, decisions are made quickly and clearly, and money flows into your own hands. Some people think that this reality is not as real as their former “real” reality, but in reality it has always been so. The watermelon peel on which you slipped is probably just the result of an old imprint from harming another that has surfaced in your conscious mind, but damn it! – the arm is still broken! Get used to it. Nothing can be done, that’s how it all happens in reality, but you can handle it.
9. YOU WANT TO BUY ANOTHER COMPANY; THE SITUATION SEEMS TO YOU A WIN-win, BUT REQUIRING CASH, AND YOU JUST HAVE MONETARY DIFFICULTIES
Everything is very simple. Stop being a miser, both in business and in your personal life. Give, give, give to others; make sure your trades are winning for both parties. And again, it is important to remember that it is not a matter of the amount of money, but to maintain – from morning till night – a truly generous, creative and responsive state of mind, to maintain in it the desire to see everyone succeed. Ben Franklin was arguably the greatest statesman, scientist, and businessman in American history. We are interested in his reaction to competition: he invited all his competitors to join a new public organization – the Chamber of Commerce, whose goal was to find ways to work together to expand markets and enrich all participants. By the way, this way of thinking in itself creates powerful imprints in all those involved in the process. A group of businessmen working in collaboration with each other can create prints in the minds of each group member and see a common reality like an expanding market. No problems! This in no way means that the prints can be transferred to another or shared with someone – this cannot be done. Rather, a group of people acting in concert and generously creates imprints that flourish as a joint collective experience, whether it be a prosperous company or a more prosperous country. That is why some countries are richer than others. We will not talk about this here — not until then — but anyway, if you think about this principle, you will make absolutely amazing conclusions about global welfare.
10. YOUR BUSINESS IS DAMAGED BY UNPREDICTABLE ACCIDENTS, FORCE MAJEURE, NATURAL DISASTERS – IN GENERAL, ALL KNOWN ISSUES: BAD WEATHER, OR INTERRUPTIONS IN CITY OF INFRASTRANIA
Take your promises very seriously, especially your obligations to adhere to the special principles of doing business and personal life. The human mind rises at the thought that even external forces such as weather or traffic in the city can be the result of our own actions, but according to the laws of this ancient wisdom, such problems come from there. Do not forget that these events are “empty”, or “neutral”, or “pure”. Someone will definitely enter the city on a green street, even when there are traffic jams around him, and someone will rip a good jackpot in heavy snowfall or tropical rain (owners of ski resorts or manufacturers of umbrellas). The positive or negative impact of an event on you is not something that emanates from itself; even if you think about it for just a minute, it will become obvious that such an impact is something that comes from your sensations. But they also have a reason: you are forced to experience these feelings by your own past actions, the style of your behavior, and the specific content of your behavior (inability to keep your word) is similar to the external result caused by it (unstable weather and unreliable infrastructures).
11. YOU DETECTED THAT YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO CONCENTRATE OR REMAIN YOUR MIND IN FOCUSING, MEETING COMPLICATIONS IN THE BUSINESS OR THE NEED TO MAKE DIFFICULT DECISIONS
Take time daily for calm, focused thoughts about the meaning of life. Will you do right now what you are doing right now, if you suddenly know that you are going to die tonight? Are life priorities set correctly? Are there any more important questions regarding your lifestyle that you seem to be hiding from the hustle and bustle of, overloading yourself with overtime work and the struggle for transaction volumes? Stop your run, look back at your life and what really matters. The mental imprint from such a daily exercise will manifest in your conscious mind as the ability to maximize concentration. And this leads us to a very serious conclusion: not only current events and the people around you appear because these old prints pop up in your mind, but the very way you feel your own mind and thoughts is the result of past actions and fingerprints breaking into the conscious mind in an appropriate sequence.
12. YOU DISCOVER WHAT IT IS NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND BASIC CONCEPTS OF BUSINESS, OR SCHEMES OF MARKET STRUCTURES, OR DYNAMIC STRUCTURES, SUCH AS FULL PRODUCTION CYCLES OR SYSTEMS
Get ready to see the flaws in your own understanding of the global fundamentals of the universe. So, there are only three main explanations of why and how everything happens: global warming or hostilities in some countries this month or even the fact of birth and death – that is, the question of why we are here, how we got here why everything happens this way. You cannot ignore the question why the world works this way and not otherwise, and after that expect that you can understand why your business works (or does not work) in this way and not otherwise. And this is not a matter of faith or religious orientation or anything else like that, just as the cause of the atomic bomb does not depend on whether you are Irish or a native of the Ivory Coast.
Explanation number one. Everything in the world appears from nothing, everything is completely random, in how and why certain things happen, there are no laws, no logic whatsoever. This is a scientific approach – the Big Bang theory. “Everything stems from something else, and the scientific method is entirely based on the fact that the cause invariably precedes the investigation. In addition to such unreasonable, but important things, like the beginning of everything, which just took itself, and jumped out of nothing. ” You are here because somewhere there something exploded many years ago. Some electrons miraculously stumbled upon other electrons and together with them it is not clear how to combine into any atoms, they, in turn, do not know why they formed all kinds of molecules, there were a lot of them, and because they stayed together, a gas appeared that first circled around , and then it hardened because it collided with other little ones such I don’t remember-how-them-there-she called. In general, this is how matter was born, its piece became the Sun, and the spittle became the Earth. The sea spread wide, our ancestors crawled out of it – small thinking centipedes, then their extra legs and tail fell off, and your great-great-grandfather and great-great-grandmother also appeared somewhere there, fortunately for you, met and … well, in general, everything was random and unpredictable. If you are funny now, then you are laughing at the very basics of how your culture sees the world, at the paradigm itself, but this is actually ridiculous.
Explanation number two. The world around you, everything in this world, is the result of the conscious creative effort of a very powerful being, usually inaccessible to our direct perception. This theory, firstly, does not explain where this creature came from (didn’t the conscious effort of another big creature create it?). Secondly, it does not explain the inexplicable cruelty that there is so much in our lives – when children die in terrible fires that instantly cover the upper floors of residential high-rise buildings; when some people spend their whole life on this planet in fear and loneliness; when we are doomed to part with all that for which we work, and with all those for whom we live.
Explanation number three. These are the very principles that we discuss in this book. There is nothing accidental, everything is interconnected, and there is no one outside of us who would be guilty of the imperfection of our own world. Everything happens to us in full agreement with how we treat others, not by the sentence of a higher judge, but in strict accordance with moral law, which is just as reliable, as inevitable and as merciless as gravity. At least a few hours a week, devote honest thought to where this whole world, its people, and events might actually come from. This practice truly works wonders, giving you the ability to easily comprehend complex market patterns and commercial structures.
13. RENTAL IS TOO HIGH! DO NOT FIND A BUILDING FOR PLACING A NEW BRANCH
Be sure to help find a haven for those who need it. Such a scheme may again seem too simplified to you: well, what could be the connection between your refusal to provide Aunt Sonya’s bed for a couple of days when she came to the city on holidays and the failure to find a skyscraper for a promising branch with a multi-million dollar turnover. However, this connection exists and is strictly obeying the rules that we have established here. A small imprint is rooted in the subconscious, grows there for a time and then falls into the conscious mind, forcing you to contemplate the absence of the necessary premises. Do not dismiss this as another stupidity, but take it and try, and you will see what comes of it. Just remember: we are saying that efforts to provide premises for those who need it should be consistent with the continuous rethinking of the principles mentioned here, because prints are much more powerful when you lay them with a full understanding of what you are doing.
14. LIKE THESE COMPANIES AND PRIVATE FACES FROM THE WORLD OF YOUR BUSINESS, WHICH YOU CONSIDER PARTICULARLY SUFFICIENT, DO NOT HURRY TO ENTER BUSINESS WITH YOU
This particular imprint originates from illegibility in the choice of companions. It is typical for a business to include in the team those who can provide us with maximum financial support such as a serious subsidy, provide a roof, issue guarantees or provide other necessary funds, their specific skills or contacts – and under certain conditions, we can turn a blind eye to some quite obvious shortcomings of potential partners, such as their character, decency, moral character and the like. However, someday the human failure of such a partner will certainly harm your business, while the moral perfection of another, on the contrary, will help the business grow to serious financial success. Of course, you need to distinguish between intransigence, reaching almost pettiness, and dishonesty: Ofer, the president of Andin, was one of the most niggling merchants of all that I had to know. I remember one employee, one of our first office managers, came to me and asked if I could instead go to his office for an annual review of her salary. I was a little taken aback by such an offer and asked why on earth was she asking me to. “Because he always gives me a tiny increase, but he’s so convincing that when I leave him, I completely agree that I really don’t deserve even a dime on top and generally eat my bread for free!” However, the main thing here is that, heroically bargaining for every cent, Ofer never refused to carry out what he had already agreed to. And I think that this contributed a lot to the success of Andin.
15. MERCY COMPETITION: ONLY YOU SEEMS THAT YOU GO WITH COMPETITORS NOSZDRA IN NOSZDRA AS THE COMPETITORS AGAIN HOLD UP
One of the main reasons for this phenomenon is rudeness in a conversation with others. Ancient books contain an interesting way of explaining what exactly turns what you said into rudeness. They divide insulting expressions into two categories: those that are in themselves unpleasant, and those that seem to sound decent, but are said to intend to offend. The same imprint will take root in your mind if you humiliatingly humiliate your subordinate before the eyes of his comrades and if you seemingly innocently wink “I love these presentations at Sears!” – to the sales agent who has just returned, tail tailing, from the purchasing department Sears, miserably failing his contract with them. Consistently avoid any kind of rude speech for a long period of time, constantly remembering how many negative prints in your own mind you managed to avoid.
