The Secret of Success

The Secret Of Success

Secret to Success REWW Real Estate Worldwide Michael Hamburger

The Secret of Success: Let me tell you a little story.

It’s about a young man who wanted to know the secret of success, and decided to seek this wisdom out from a Guru.

Now this was a wise, old sage who knew every secret of life, including the in’s and out’s on how to be successful. He lived in splendid isolation on a mountaintop. The young man set out on his difficult journey to meet this wise man and have him instill life’s secret to success into him.

He was determined to reach the top no matter what.   He overcame many life threatening obstacles on his way. Fighting through thick forests, scaling huge boulders, escaping from wild beasts, at last he clambered to the peak and lay on the ground, gasping for breath.

Finding the Secret of Success Mentor

A few minutes later, he sat up… and beheld the Guru seated in deep meditation.

Silently, he waited. Almost an hour later, the Guru opened his eyes and glanced at the man. He raised an inquiring eyebrow.

The man stammered, “Oh wise and all-knowing seer, I come to you in search of the secret of success.”

The Guru didn’t reply. He simply stood up and started walking down the hill.

The man followed. He found it difficult to keep pace with the old man, who seemed to skip from one rock to the other like a mountain goat. They walked steadily for another hour, and he wondered if they were going back to the foothills.

Suddenly, they came upon a clearing. In the middle was a clear lake. The waters were still, glinting softly in the rays of a setting sun.

The Guru walked up to the edge of the lake and beckoned the man closer. With a gesture, he asked him to kneel down.

Unquestioningly, the man did as the Guru ordered.  “Ahh… Finally,” thought the young man, “This is going to reveal the Secret of Success.”

Suddenly, he felt himself seized by a strong hand at the back of his neck. His head was forced down under the water, and held there firmly.

“This is some kind of test,” said the man to himself, as he sat still.  “This will show me the secret of success?”

A minute passed, and he was growing breathless. The grip on his neck hadn’t weakened. Another minute crawled by, and now he was getting anxious. His heart beat heavily in his chest, his throat tightened, and his lungs screamed for air.

He struggled to arise, and the old man’s grip became even stronger, pressed him further down into the water.

Now, the man was in a panic. He thrashed around wildly, trying with all his energy to loosen the vise around his neck. Precious seconds passed, and he felt his strength slowly ebbing away.

He thought he was going to die!

Just as he was about to give up hope, rueing his folly in ever coming here, the hand on his collar let go.

Violently leaping onto the shore, the man drew in his breath in heaving gasps. Delicious oxygen flooded his lungs. His vision grew clearer, the hammering in his throat slowed down, his hands stopped trembling.

And he felt a deep anger welling up from within himself.

Standing up, he faced the Guru and screamed: “Are you CRAZY? You could have killed me!”

The Secret of Success Revealed

The Guru simply stared at him for a long moment.

Then he spoke for the first time.

“You wanted to know the secret of success. Here it is. Do you remember, just a few minutes ago, how badly you wanted to take that next breath of air? When you want success that badly, you will have it. That’s the secret of success.”

Without saying another word, he turned around and walked back to his hilltop abode.

Secret to Success

When I was roughly 10 years of age, give or take a year or two… My dad took my younger brother and I, along with another Dad and his 2 boys white water rafting on the Chattooga River.  If you’ve ever seen the classic movie Deliverance starring Burt Reynolds, it’s that crazy body of white water that I refer to here minus anyone squealing like a pig.  The dad’s had promptly lied about each of their youngest son’s ages to get them into the raft and on the river and away we went.  Our party of adventurer’s put in our rafts early in the morning just at daybreak and set out to attack section 3 of the Chattooga River.

 We rafted all day long, stopped for a warm riverside lunch mid-day and were flat out worn out 7 or 8 hours later when we had conquered the river.  Hamburger party 1, river 0.  As we were getting ready to pull our rafts out and make the long trek back to a hot shower and meal that awaited us, I summoned up the courage to ask the kayaker that accompanied our rafting excursion if I could take his kayak for a ride.  It was one of the coolest feelings I had ever experienced.  After paddling hard all day long in a big heavy raft down a very aggressive and unforgiving river, sitting inside the kayak was completely different.  The kayak was sleek and agile.  It was like getting out of the driver’s seat of a bus after driving in rush hour traffic for hours and getting behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 Turbo.  Everything was going just fine and I’m sure I was sporting a smile from ear to ear… that is until Alex, my dad’s buddy’s kid who was with us, decided to flip me over.  I had not seeked out the Guru for the secret to success.  Why me?

Alex and I had seen the guy in the kayak flip over and pop back over all day long.  So I’m sure Alex thought no worries, let’s see Michael do it too.  Or maybe Alex was my secret to success Guru showing up in my youth to foreshadow the lesson at a young ripe age.  No problem.  Right?  The kayaker made it look so easy.  I wasn’t prepared to be flipped over but my boyish naivety and over confidence was all I needed to survive or so I thought. My first underwater experiment was that I tried shifting all my weight to one side… and nothing.  Underwater and no new air.

Next, I tried shifting from one side to the other… again, nothing and no new air.  With each failed effort I exhausted energy and oxygen from my system.  Finally, I was able to get my head out of the water just ling enough to take in a fresh breath of air and to say, “DAD!!!”

Secret to SuccessNothing.  Back under the water I went and finally just when I was at the point of submitting to the river, I righted myself and popped back up.  It was an eye awakening experience for me.  It was my first semi-brush with what I perceived as death.  The adults, including the kayaker and river guides, never knew what happened.  They were busy packing everything up and getting ready to hike.  The incident lasted a lifetime when in reality it must have been less than a couple of minutes.

For me, looking back, it was one of the experiences that ultimately shaped my life.  I know for a fact what the young hero above may have felt.  I know what it is like to feel like I’ve taken my last breath and to fight for just one more!

I learned at age 10 or so the SECRET TO SUCCESS, although it wasn’t until many years later that I learned what to do with it and how to harness it.

I wanted to breath.  I wanted to live.  I wanted to get out of that kayak.

Fast forward roughly 10 years or so.

The year was 1991.  It was a hot August afternoon in Statesboro, GA.  I was moving into my new dorm for my Freshman year of college at Georgia Southern University.  I had moved all of my personal possessions from the safe haven of the parental unit’s (my childhood home) to the new wild frontier called COLLEGE.  My best friends and I had borrowed a truck from my Dad to drive down to school.  We had moved all of our stuff into our dorm and my parents finally arrived with my car and to oversee that we were moved in.

My Dad has always had a way of teaching me tough lessons in life that will serve me in achieving what I truly desire.  We were all moved into our dorm and Dad offered to fill my tiny cube refrigerator so off to Wal-Mart we went.  I’ll never forget the moment my life changed… it was the moment I realized I was about to have my head held under the water.

We had just walked out of the restaurant and were changing vehicles back.  Dad handed me a $100 bill.  As I reached for it, he held onto it and made the following statement, “Son, this is the last time I’m ever giving you money.  From this point forward, you’re on your own.”

This was a defining moment for me in life.  Sink or swim.  It was this moment that I realized that whatever I truly wanted in life was simply a choice and that I was fully capable of making it happen with focused determination and a work ethic.  It was an awesome awareness to learn this at a young age.  It was at this specific point in time that I made a choice to be successful in my life NO MATTER WHAT.

Ask yourself…  Success. How Bad Do You Want It?

One of my favorite country music songs is not about losing your wife, crashing your truck or having your dog run away…  It’s a song by Tim McGraw titled, “How Bad Do You Want It?”  I don’t care if you love country music or if it makes your blood curdle, INVEST a few minutes to listen to the words to this song.  Let the words sink in and take then inventory.

The Chicken and the Pig

The Chicken and the Pig

There is an age-old fable about The Chicken and the Pig

chicken and pig

Have you ever heard the tale of the Chicken and the Pig?

The Chicken and the Pig fable goes something like is…

The Chicken and the Pig are walking down the road.
The Chicken says: “Hey Pig, I was thinking we should open a restaurant!”
Pig replies: “Hm, maybe, what would we call it?”
The Chicken responds: “How about ‘ham-n-eggs’?”
The Pig thinks for a moment and says: “No thanks. I’d be committed, but you’d only be involved!”

The Chicken and the Pig story has also been presented in the age-old form of a riddle:

Question: In a bacon-and-egg breakfast, what’s the difference between the Chicken and the Pig?

Answer: In The Chicken and the Pig riddle… The Chicken is involved, but the Pig is committed!

The Chicken and the Pig  REWW Real Estate Worldwide

 

I’M A PIG!

In case you didn’t know that by now… Michael Hamburger is a pig!  Have you ever asked yourself, “What is the difference between involved and committed?”

In a bacon and egg breakfast, the chicken is involved by just laying the eggs, while the pig is committed since once you become bacon there is no going back!

I love The Chicken and the Pig parable. One of my original millionaire mentors (BIG THANKS Ron Mabry) used to say it all the time to his late son Brynn and myself, but it wasn’t until I went and ventured out into business on my own that I really understood the meaning at a cellular level.

And I am proud to say……. I am now a PIG.  I’ve been a pig for more than a decade and it’s the only way I could see myself playing the game of business.  Ask my wife Leslie Hamburger.  She’ll tell you that she’s married to a pig and it’s not because I forget to make the bed from time-to-time, although that is an entirely different story for a different time!  YES DEAR!!!

Over the years its become very easy to spot a pig.  They are the ones who show up, the ones who won’t give up, the ones who push past the pain of rejection. The ones who have some skin in the game.

For me, just being involved wouldn’t bring the results I want and I doubt it’ll bring you the results you desire.

Are you the Chicken or the Pig in your life and your business?

Our team members are getting results… both in their marketing business and in their real estate business.

Meet Joe Lucci…  CRUSHING it in his new Real Estate Worldwide Business earning $10,000 profit in his first 30 days with our team.

Home Business Radio Network Celebrates it’s 1st Year On-The-Air

Home Business Radio Network - Michael Hamburger

Holy smokes.  It’s hard to believe that the Home Business Radio Network is already celebrating it’s 1 year birthday!

Doug FirebaughIf you haven’t heard of the Home Business Radio Network or HBRN yet, you are seriously missing the boat.  Doug Firebaugh, who is a legend in the direct selling industry, created Home Business Radio Network – Positive Powered Radio and launched it on January 31, 2012.  During this time, Doug has attracted some of the industry’s biggest and most respected PRODUCERS and TRAINERS as radio hosts.  Now we are not talking about the folks from one or two companies, the Home Business Radio Network features leaders from all over the home business, direct sales and network marketing industry.

In my humble opinion, what I feel is the coolest part of the Home Business Radio Network are the people who are served.  As of today’s post, the Home Business Radio Network has listeners in over 100 countries around the world!  Think about how many amazing people are able to plug-in 24 hours per day and listen in on solid, fresh content with the sole purpose of lifting up the listener in their business.  I cannot help but think about the old saying, “A rising tide lifts all ships!”

As I wrote a minute ago, as a way to celebrate this monumental point in time, Doug Firebaugh is hosting a HUGE birthday bash radio show!  The show begins at 8 PM EST and will be the very first LIVE broadcast in HBRN history.  Home Business Radio Network Co-Founder Paul Saunders and Tom Chenault will be hosting this historic broadcast.  The show will run live on the air from 8 PM EST until 11 PM EST.  I’ll be joining in ON-THE-AIR for the LIVE broadcast between 10 PM and 11 PM EST.  I’ve got some cool things to share and give-away (hint, hint).

You can listen live via your computer by visiting http://homebusinessradionetwork.com or by simply downloading a smart phone app.  I love to listen on my phone broadcasting through my car’s sound system…just saying!  By the way, you can find the link to download the smart phone app on the top of the home page by the listen live link.

I am not bashful in sharing that I have gained so much knowledge and insight from Home Business Radio Network hosts such as Todd Falcone, Doug Firebaugh, Tar’Lese Rideaux, Diane Hochman, Ray Higdon, Tony Cannuli and Troy Dooley just to name a few!

Shameless plug:  In case you haven’t heard my show or perhaps you simply don’t know, I have had the privilege of hosting “The Michael Hamburger Show” over on the Home Business Radio Network since August 2012.  Tune in, take what you like, leave the rest and be sure to give me love!  I have enjoyed interviewing some amazing marketers and other influencers that play a vital role to our niche.  A few of my show’s past guests have included Mark Hoverson, Michael Bernoff, Lisa Kitter, Tara Wilson and Kevin Thompson.

By the way, if there is someone you feel should be considered as a guest on the show, be sure to leave it below in the comments section, along with the reason why.

Hello 9-1-1, I think I’m having a HEART ATTACK!

Let me warn you right upfront, today’s blog post is 100% accurate and my real life story may scare the daylights out of you. It scared me & I am forever grateful for it.

I’ve been in direct sales for the past 10 years.  I resigned from my corporate job in the telecom industry in March 2003.  That was a poweful experience for me.  What I am about to share for the first time ever via email is probably one of the most powerful yet scariest experiences of my life.

I shared a story yesterday live from stage about an experience that happened to me last year in June 2011.  An experience that has changed my life forever! An experience that I hope will change you forever!  I was still living in Texas and still working my corporate job running a $100 million direct sales company.  From the outside looking in, it was a “Dream Job”.

So let me take you back.  It was a typical Friday night in the Hamburger house.  We enjoyed a dinner I cooked on the grill & a family ping pong tournament.  My wife and I had just put our 4 year old to bed and our 4 month old was asleep in the nursery.  If you have kids, you know that a pacifier is worth it’s weight in gold.

My youngest started crying and I rushed in to pop a pacifier in her mouth.  After quietly closing the nursery door, I felt like my chest was going to explode.  The sheer pain dropped me to my knees.  I couldn’t even find the breathe to call my wife for help downstairs.  I finally made my way down our stairs and grabbed my wife and a phone.

I layed on the floor in our living room and then dialed 9-1-1.  After telling the 911 operator that I thought I was having a heart attack, I took an aspirin and stayed on the phone.  It wasn’t a matter of 180 seconds until I could hear the sirens in my neighborhood.  Since I lived on the a golf course, I could hear the sirens literally go around my house.  Slowly they were making their way towards my home…

I’ll be the first to admit that it was a freaky sound knowing the sirens slowly circling my neighborhood making their way toward my home were coming for me!  The front door opened and 6 first responder fire
fighters came in.

Seconds later a couple of paramedics arrived in an ambulance.  They cut open my shirt and started hooking all kinds of equipment to me.  It was all too surreal.

While this entire episode was happening before my eyes TO ME, I layed on the big furry rug in front of the fireplace mantel and stared up to our family portrait.

As I layed there looking up at the picture of my wife, our 2 young daughters and myself, I remembered all the things I had not yet done.  I wondered if this was the last time I’d ever see my house again?  Would I see my kids again?  I insisted on walking upstairs and kissing both of my sleeping kids.  From there, it was off to the emegency room for a romantic Friday evening with my bride and an ER filled with doctors, nurses, tests, etc.

The good news is that I was ok.  I got a clean bill of health.  The doctors determined that it was NOT a heart attack.  They said it was either a severe anxiety attack from the stress of work or severe dehydration from playing too much tennis in the 100° humid Houston summer.

This was a wake-up call for me to stop living my life for someone else, building someone else’s dreams and to start building my own dream!

This event changed everything for me.  I made a commitment to myself that I would never live in the regret of not living my life to the max each and everyday.  I vowed to “leave it all on the field.”  I promised myself and the “BIG MAN” upstairs that the when my time on this planet is up and I lay on my deathbed, I will rejoice in knowing that I made my dreams my reality and that I would assist others in doing the same.  That night changed my life and I want to assist you in doing the same!

Shortly after this “episode” I made the decision to leave my cushy “dream job” and follow my passions completely. NO LIMITS!  NO REGRETS!

I hope and pray that if you’ve been paying attention to my story that you’ve been able to relate something, somewhere to you and your life.  I am committed to assisting people to never live in regret or settle again.  I can not tell you how many people I’ve heard of that are on their deathbeds wishing for more time to fulfill on the empty promises they made to themselves that were left undone.

I’ve never been more committed to assisting great people create a life without limits in their lives.  Things have been moving at warp speed inside Real Estate Worldwide & there has NEVER been a better time to join our team.  The results our team members are creating are awe-inspiring.

YOU DESERVE TO MAKE YOUR TIME HERE COUNT.

If you’re ready to fully investigate what is available for yourself with REWW and my team, let me know.  Shoot me the best 2 times to contact you this week and I promise to do my absolute best to connect with you then.  My personal home office phone number is below.  I look forward to hearing from you and seeing if this is a good fit to building your dreams and your life without limits!  Until then…

How’s Your Vision?

Every morning I’m out pounding the trail on my favorite mountain that overlooks the beautiful Sonoran Desert around my home. Yesterday, inspiration hit me on the way up and I decided to shoot a spontaneous video to share the view when I made it to the top. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can follow the links to watch it here, but today I have a question for you.

Have you checked your vision lately?

I’m not talking about your eyesight. I’m talking about your ability to see the potential all around you – and more importantly, in yourself. Taking that morning run is important to me for a lot of reasons. It gets fresh, oxygenated blood pumping through my body to prepare me for the business day. It presents me with an inspiring physical challenge to beat my time or improve my form and stamina.

Most of all, though, it elevates my thinking by getting my perspective up and away from screens and charts and back out on the horizon again. As I point out in the video, I’m surrounded by open space that reminds me of the abundance that’s all around me, every minute of every day – PROVIDED that I’m willing to challenge myself to reach for it. That kind of seeing reminds me to keep dreaming bigger.

How are you testing your vision? What stretch goals are you setting? What are you demanding of yourself? What are you expecting from life?

Have you been settling for less in any particular area of your life?

  • Your income?
  • Your relationships?
  • Your self confidence?
  • Your health and fitness?
  • Your play time and creativity?

 

If there’s room in your world for some bigger thinking, I invite you to join me in a community that GETS IT, and gets it in a big way. Years ago, I made a conscious choice to drop out of the “ain’t it awful club” and surround myself with possibility thinkers. I wanted to be around people all day, every day who were on the up escalator of life. I found them in my partners and team members in the network marketing world.

We spend our “work” days expanding each other’s vision – and then helping one another to achieve that vision step by step, victory by victory. It’s a professional thrill that fills me up every time I look out from that mountain top and savor the life that REWW has made possible for me and for my family.

So I ask you again, how’s your vision? Can you “SEE” yourself living a life like that? I can. Let’s start now!

DREAM BIG!!!
