The Secret to Creating Your Successes

The Secret to Creating Your Successes

In all the years that I have been speaking professionally, people always have the same set of questions for me: How can I achieve success? How can I achieve my goals? How can I live the life of my dreams?

Whenever people ask me any of those questions, the first thing I say is, “What is it that you want to achieve?” And in response, instead of telling me what they want to achieve, most of the time they tell me all the reasons why it may not work, or they list all the obstacles that prevent them from achieving their goals, or they even tell me why they can’t begin pursuing their goals in the first place.

About 10 years ago, I was teaching a martial arts class for my adult students, and during this particular class, I described a fairly difficult technique that I was going to teach them. After my explanation, one of my students yelled from the back of the room, “Sir, that’s impossible!” I turned my head toward him and I said, “For YOU, it is! And I continued to teach the rest of my class. After the class, my student came to speak to me, and I could tell that he was a little disturbed. I asked him if everything was ok, and he said, “Why did you say that the technique was impossible for ME to learn?” My reply was very short: “If you don’t believe that you can achieve it, how are you going to be successful?”

One very important element of success is you have to truly believe with every part of you that you can achieve your goals, that you deserve them, and that you will be successful no matter what obstacles are in front of you. Because of your determination and your burning desire, you will achieve your goals no matter how difficult or distant your goals may appear. Big goals or little goals, the difference lives only within our own minds. A big tower, or a little shack, if you look at both of them from the moon, they are both so small that it makes no difference. The same when it comes down to money--one dollar or one million dollars--for the universe it makes no difference. The only difference is how we feel about each one.

When you set your goals, make sure that those goals are believable to you. You have to know that no matter what, you will achieve those goals, and with your burning desire you will overcome any obstacle. You must believe that you already achieved them.

I wish you, all my readers and your families the most absolute success, prosperity but most importantly inner peace.

The Power of a Smile

The Power of a Smile

A smile is the secret key that can open the most incredible doors. Practice it often, and doors will open every time you knock.

Imagine how it feels when you meet someone, and that person gives you the “cold” face. Most people will immediately form a first impression of an unlikeable person or someone who is not very warm. If you walk into a store and you see the attendant with a long face or a very tired, unexpressive look, it almost makes the customers feel unwelcome and even uncomfortable. I often get some of those feelings. A couple of days ago I went in to a store with my wife and as I was getting ready to pay, I saw two cashiers open. The first one looked angry with a long face, and she gave me the impression she was thinking something like, “How dare you come in here to bother me.” Does that sound familiar? On the other hand, the second one looked like a very nice lady, pleasant and warm, so without a question I chose the lady with a smile.

The power of a smile is so great on many different levels. First, it is a reflection of your internal state. For example, stressed people don’t usually smile, and if they do, it usually looks fake, so you can tell anyway. It’s very important that we learn to smile, and when you are able to make this a habit, you will see how you begin to change your attitude, even if you don’t feel particularly happy at that moment. Every time you smile or laugh, you produce chemicals that will help you feel better, and it is said that those chemicals will even help with health and the healing process.

Once you are feeling good and you have a nice smile, you will begin to see how everything looks brighter, how people are more receptive to you, and your how day will improve because your perception and disposition will be better.

I hope this helps put a smile on your face, and helps you get one step closer to your dreams.

What do you choose: Negativity or prosperity?

We spend so much time looking outside ourselves. True happiness cannot be found just in what we see with our eyes. Only after you find harmony within yourself, will you be able to find harmony with everyone around you and with the universe. When that happens, true happiness is borne.

Our outside world is only a reflection of our internal state of mind, and the result of our predominant way of thinking. When a person has a predominant negative way of thinking, one way or another that person will attract negativity into his or her life. On the other hand, a predominant positive way of thinking will attract positivity and prosperity.

It is said that whatever the mind is looking for it will find. Positive or negative, everything depends on the eyes that are looking at a particular situation.

It has been said that when we look at things negatively and sustain a negative thought for a period of 17 seconds, the mind will continue to produce similar negative thoughts. Not only will more negative thoughts be produced, they will be stronger, and result in more negative circumstances coming to you. That is how a negativity frenzy begins.

However, positive thoughts work the same way. If you sustain a positive thought for a period of time, it will invite more thoughts of the same kind, and that will create a wonderful positive state of mind. This will in turn attract more positive circumstances, people and situations to you.

Energy is always vibrating and so are our thoughts. Positive or negative, this powerful energy can influence our reality. So when we face any situation, we have the choice to find the negative or the seed of a benefit that exists. Our choice will determine if we will continue to vibrate negatively and continue to experience negative results, or vibrate positively, which will invite and attract prosperity, success and happiness. I wish for you, to be able to choose the positive every time!

Change your thoughts for success

Change your thoughts for success
Recently I was the keynote speaker for a company in Virginia. After my speech the new vice president for one of their divisions wanted to relate my speech to his most recent experience in the company. He was recently promoted with the purpose of getting his division out of the hole. He said that when he took the job, everyone was focusing only on the problems. He looked at the problems and he suggested to his team to focus on its goals and the process to achieve them. Once the team stopped focusing only on what was wrong, and they began to focus on how to achieve their goals, everything began to change. They not only met their goals, but their division achieved record numbers for the company.
We have the power to create our own reality. The focus of your attention will determine what your mind will fill find. By focusing on the negative aspect of any situation you are only giving power to those circumstances, and your mind will have no choice but to find more negativity, even in other areas of your life. Your mind is looking for it, so it will find it. With a negative frame of mind it is impossible to create positive experiences. To truly change the outcome of any situation into your desired results, you must focus your mind and energy on positivity and on what you truly want, with the faith that you will achieve it. With the power of positive thinking, your mind will find the way to get there, the ideas will begin to flow and all the necessary opportunities will begin to present themselves at the right time to create that reality that you want—a reality filled with success, prosperity and inner peace.
With these simple steps you have the power to change your life and your business.

You are the creator of your own reality

YOU have the power to control how you are vibrating, positively or negatively. Therefore, the ability to bring whatever you want to your life is yours. You have the power to create your own wonderful reality, with faith that the universe is on your side.

You no longer have to be a passive spectator or victim of uncontrollable circumstances around you. You no longer have to reactively live a life of randomness and worry. You no longer have to hope or wonder if everything is going to turn out okay. Instead, you can develop into an active creator—an inventor of thoughts, feelings and positive energy that will elevate your state of being. Have faith that, whatever experiences you face, you’re gaining wisdom and the tools to bring you closer and closer to your goals.

It’s extremely important to realize your PAST thoughts and feelings have created the situations and circumstances you’re experiencing in the present. Your current situation is the result of feelings you’ve already experienced, and you must remind yourself that those thoughts and feelings are in the past. They don’t exist right now if you don’t let them. More importantly, you have the ability and the power to create a new reality for yourself simply by shifting the way you think. This will change how you feel, and these new positive feelings will result in a positive shift in the people, situations and circumstances coming into your life. This is worth repeating: You are the Creator of Your Own Reality.

In order to construct the life you want in every area (career, finances, relationships, health and inner peace), you must pay attention to how you are “vibrating.” What kind of energy are you emitting? Positive or negative? What are you attracting to your existence?

Thoughts alone don’t possess much power. However, the feelings produced by those thoughts, especially strong feelings, possess the amazing power to change our lives. Those feelings are the key to creating our desired reality. By choosing to “vibrate” positively, we can create a positive reality and a truly amazing life.

Turn Challenges into Opportunities

“Turn every challenge into an opportunity. No matter how difficult it is, every challenge contains the seed of a benefit. You just have to look for it.”

Many times I’ve heard people complain about the obstacles and challenges that they have to overcome, and these challenges are the excuses they use to explain why they can’t achieve their successes.
Sometimes we tell ourselves, “I don’t have enough money for that project,” or “I don’t have the education to get that promotion,” or we complain about all the situations that are obstacles to our successes.

To really understand the balance between challenges and opportunities, we have to take a hard look at what challenges really are. Believe it or not, challenges are more important than we realize. They provide us with the experience, knowledge, and tools we need to prepare us for the next steps in our journey to achieve success.

To achieve success, we have to be ready to receive it. Similar to the saying, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” If one of your goals is to make a certain amount of money, first you need to determine exactly how much money you want to make. Then you need to decide and plan exactly how you are going to make it. This plan may include education in certain field, acquiring knowledge, or doing a certain amount of work. Whatever it is, you will need certain conditions met before you will see your money or any other goal you may have. Obstacles and challenges are key ingredients to prepare you for that moment of victory. Take advantage of those challenges and find the seeds of benefit that each one of them contains.

Just as I did in my kickboxing world championship fights, roll with the punches and don’t give up. Use patience, have faith and never lose sight of your dreams. Believe in yourself, and you will achieve your goals, no matter how big they are.

With these simple steps you have the power to change your life.

The Power of Intention

“If you expect great things, then great things will come. Believe in your dreams regardless of circumstances or what others may think of it.”

The forces that move our minds are amazingly powerful. Incredibly enough, the same forces that create planets, solar systems and galaxies are also used to create our realities.

The reality we each experience is the result of the projection of our own minds. Everything we experience--our lives, our victories and defeats are like mirrors projecting our vibrational state, and that state is determined by our thoughts and feelings.

Our thoughts determine the way we feel. Good thoughts make us feel good, bad thoughts make us feel bad, and as a result we are vibrating either positively or negatively. This vibration is like a signal sent to the universe, which will in turn produce circumstances, situations and conditions to match that vibration. That’s why it’s so important to wisely choose what we think about for sustained periods of time, and what we really want manifested in our lives.

To create prosperous, successful and peaceful lives, we must CREATE them by first THINKING about them and sending those signals to the universe. It doesn’t just show up unintentionally. Use the POWER OF INTENTION and begin to think about prosperity, abundance, success, peace and everything you want manifested. It all begins with your thoughts.

The second part of the process is you have to FEEL GOOD. Think about things that make you feel good. How do you want your life to be? Dream as if it is already a reality.

The most important ingredient in using the power of intention, is ACTING according to your desires. If you want abundance, KNOW that it is coming. Use your mind to bring those feelings of having abundance to your present. Behave and speak as if you are the most prosperous person in the world. Feel the excitement of knowing it is 100 percent on its way.

Just with these simple steps you have the power to change your life.

Wishing you success, prosperity and peace,

When the student is ready the teacher appears

The energy you spend worrying about your problems will only give more power to the problems. Spend that energy positively to plan for your future. In this process, just when you are ready, the answer or the way will be revealed.

Did you ever hear the saying, "when the student is ready the teacher appears"? The same goes for our problems. The solutions for our problems will only appear when we are ready to receive them. When we take a negative approach towards our problems, like complaining all the time, telling people how miserable we are, feeling sorry for ourselves, or looking to other people to make us feel good because we can't find a way to feel good ourselves, we are actually perpetuating our problems and disconnecting ourselves from that universal source of well-being. With this kind of mindset you will only attract more problems or situations that will match the negative nature of those feelings.

Once we are able to acknowledge that every situation good or bad, and every experience pleasant or unpleasant, is a very important part of the process of achieving success, we can then shift the focus of our energy from what we don't want to the things we really want. Once you shift your focus, you will automatically begin to feel good, and you will begin to vibrate positively. And when you begin to vibrate positively, the universal force of well-being will find the way to match that vibration with situations and circumstances that will open the gates of wealth, and prosperity. And with THIS kind of mindset, every desire your mind can conceive you will be able to achieve!

Attachment is responsible for the slavery of our emotions and becoming prisoners of our own minds. Learn to free your mind, by not letting circumstances break your harmony or dictate how you feel. The base of love and happiness lies first in the achievement of harmony from within, and then that will follow with finding harmony with everything else around you.

Achieving success

Today I was teaching a seminar in a company in the DC Metropolitan area, and I was talking about what led me to write my book,  The Master Method.  In its creation, I had realized that I followed a particular method to achieve every one of my goals, and I call that method, The Master Method.  I was so excited to be able to share that method with the world, and with everyone who wanted to learn.  Knowing that I was going to be able to change people's lives made me so excited to write about it, and I truly enjoyed every moment of the process.  When I spoke to the crowd today,  I told them they can achieve anything they want in their lives, and I really got their attention.  Looking at their faces made me realize the importance of my message, and I could truly feel something was being born within each one of them.  That made me feel incredibly great.

If you close your eyes and imagine the life of your dreams in all areas--finances, career, relationships, health and inner peace--know that you can have it.  No matter how big your goals are, you can achieve them.  Knowing exactly what you want is the first step, and training your mind to be positively oriented is the fuel to every success.

Live your life with enthusiasm.  Experience it in your job, with your family, your friends, anyone you encounter, and most importantly, when no one is watching.  Don't sell yourself short.  Dream big, and go after those dreams.

Driving home from the movies tonight with my wife, I was thinking about all the things I teach my students, and one word came to my mind:  impermanence.  I asked her, "Do you know what impermanence is?"  And she replied, "Yes, I think so."  Everything in this universe is made of energy, and energy is always changing from one form to another.  Everything is always transforming.  Even my teachings.  The understanding of them will change, as the mind discovers and experiences new things.  The same teachings will have a different meaning according to the growth and experiences of each individual mind.  Days change to night, summer changes to autumn, life to death, and death to life, rainy days to sunny days...and so is everything else that we know.

Even the difficult circumstances and challenges that we experience everyday cannot last.  Sunny days will always appear after the clouds have moved on.  Rainy days are very important to maintain the balance of nature on this planet, so is every challenge that we experience.  Like the rain bringing us this vital element called water, challenges bring us the vital elements to our success.  Always remember on rainy days, that the sun will be coming out soon.

Check out this month's Issue of 270Inc Business Magazine

Recently I had the pleasure of being a guest with Pattee Brown and Harby Tran on their 270Inc Radio Show, and from the moment we met, I knew we would become fast friends.  I loved their energy, their rapport with each other (and with me), and it was one of my favorite interviews I have ever done, simply because it was SO MUCH FUN!

A couple of months later, I was lucky enough to have them as guests on my show, The Master Method, seen on Montgomery Channel 16 (Maryland, USA), and once again, it was more like hanging out with old friends than working.  They inspired our viewers and shared their success stories with us, and we were able to hear first-hand about their successful partnership, and the passion behind their highly acclaimed business magazine, 270Inc.   I truly believe this magazine is revolutionary and should set the standard for all publications.  It educates, inspires, motivates and enlightens in its spectrum and balance of touching the hearts of individuals to arming larger businesses with tools for growth.  From human interest stories to increasing the bottom line, Pattee and Harby have hit the jackpot.  Congratulations!

Please check out the article that Rachael Shankle wrote in this month's issue.  She interviewed me about my story of growing up in Chile, coming to America, some of my struggles and my successes.  I hope you enjoy it!

Please write and tell me what you think!


Thanks, Pattee and Harbee for everything you do.  You deserve all the successes that are surely coming your way.

With warm regards,
Master Marco
