I am reading the “Awaken the giant within” by Anthony Robbins. I must say that I was expected to be blown away by the content. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed.
I have listened to many of Tony Robbins podcasts. Have also watched the Netflix ‘ I am not your guru’. As you would expect I like the way Tony Robbins thinks and delivers his positive energy in all his messages.
I was late to the party in becoming a fan, although I have often heard of Tony Robbins I had not engaged in any of his content although I had enjoyed listening to his one of his mentors, the late great Jim Rohn.
So after actually starting to engage in Tony Robbins material, I was annoyed at myself for not getting involved sooner.
Fan or Not
So right now, irrespective of what you may think of Tony Robbins, being a fan or not. I would highly encourage you to read this book ‘Awaken the giant within”. The amount of people he has helped through the work that he has done and through the book is staggering.
Helping people identify limiting beliefs that are holding them back, that they didn’t even know they had. It is invaluable.
The purchase of the book os such a small investment into the impact it could have on your life and also the lives of those around you, as you change you will be positively be impacting those around you just by the natural cause of life.
If you really want to get a great deal the is also a three-book bundle for not much more investment.
“You get Awaken the giant within”
“7 Simple Steps To Financial Freedom”
So grab all of these books for a great price and as you read and absorb the content you will change your life for the better. I know even though I knew about limiting beliefs and being very aware to not be restricted to them, the way Tony Robbins explains and the detail he provides is truly amazing. It improved my understanding of limited beliefs and highlighted things that have been holding me back my whole life. Not any more – Thank you, Tony.
We all have to deal with failures and many challenges throughout life. How we deal with these failures and challenges will shape our lives more than we think. Many people need a push before they make any significant changes, mainly due to fear of failure. Are you ready to face these failures and unexpected challenges in a positive way? What will your life be if you do?
We all have things that lured us into our various professions. The promise of uncapped commissions and the potential to better control of income is what attracts most people to the sales profession. It is precisely what seduced me. I loved that the harder I work, the more commission I earn.
However, the conventional working manner (of studying hard get a good job and you are secure for 40 years), has been changing for many years. Even though many, including me, have been in denial about the severe changes in the various professions especially the sales profession.
We know the working 40 years for the same company no longer is the status quo. Even working for one company more than 10 years is becoming rare. With the advances in digital technology, things are changing even quicker and many are finding they need to re-skill and many are opting for starting a business online.
This pandemic we all find ourselves in is one of the major contributors to millions having to change their jobs and professions and many are considering starting a business online. We are in a unique environment with the Covid-19, and no one could have predicted this pandemic or the effect it has had on the whole world. However, even before this pandemic, the conventional work system has been changing for many years.
Most people need a push before making a change
Many people need a push before they make any change and this may be a significant issue which forces the change. Millions of people lost their jobs or forced salary deductions may be the push people need to start looking for other income streams. And many have started looking to the internet for a viable income option.
One of the biggest fears people have
However, making a considerable change usually is one of the biggest fears people have, it keeps them from making the changes they know they should make. These people tend to be dominated by fear.
“Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.”
Do you want the control?
If you want to be in better control of your income and not have to be dictated by a boss or a company, then take control of your income. You will have full control over your income and working environment in your own business.
There is a way you don’t have to put yourself under unnecessary pressure for the business to immediately provide your full income. You can ease this pain by starting a business online and building alongside your full-time job (perhaps 2-3 hours a day) until you can earn enough to quit the 9-5 job.
“The best time to start a business was yesterday, the second-best time to start a business is today.”
So don’t wait for tomorrow to be in the same position.
There are also others who have possibly tried starting an online business and for various reasons may have failed. Now they may need to look at the online business option again, may immediately be intimidated by their failures.
“One of the biggest challenges in anyone’s life is knowing how to interpret failures. How we deal with life’s defeats and what we determine is the cause will shape our destinies. We need to remember that how we deal with adversity and challenges will shape our lives more than almost anything else.”
You have the choice
So as you decide if you are going to start an online business, you need to consider what your life would be like in 12, 24, 36 or even 60 months from now.
Will you be frustrated if your salary lowered or if you are made redundant? Or there is some reason for the company to reduce your income? Will you be looking at quitting the daily grind as you have been building your online business on the side and now earn more in your part-time business than you do in your full-time job?
You don’t know what you don’t know
Another fear people have is they don’t know what they don’t know. They don’t know what business they are able to start. Many think their value they have to offer the world is restricted to their limited life experiences. Therefore they think they have nothing worthwhile to offer the world. They fear they are going to waste their time and their effort and not have anything constructive to offer.
“Comfort and the fear of change are the greatest enemies of success.”
Discover your value through the training
However, most people who start the training program soon realize the vast value they can offer. They also discover other options they never thought of doing. However, after going through the training and developing new skills and discovering interests they see opportunities in the areas they didn’t even know existed a few weeks earlier.
“I woke up this morning and realized I don’t have what it takes to sit back and be average.”
An exciting journey – love waking up in the morning
When you start taking action, the excitement shoots off the charts. It is an exciting journey of self-discovery and possibility. will discover passions and interests you didn’t even know you had. And when you can build a business around those interests your love waking up in the morning and growing to work, not because you have to but because you want too. What a great feeling. Very satisfying.
“Why settle for average when amazing is attainable?”
Starting a business online doesn’t have to be stressful; you can build the business while still working your full-time job.
“Normal is the wrong name often used for average.”
Henry S. Haskins
Build your business alongside your day job, no need to earning a full-time salary from the get-go.
You will be able to start by putting in a few hours a day and slowly learn the new skills and build the business slowly not having to depend on this income which you would be wise to reinvest in the business. Therefore you will be able to grow quicker and the money invested doesn’t affect your full-time income as it is the extra income you have made.
“You stop being average the day you decide to become a champion because the average person won’t make that decision.”
The first thing you need is a good mentor. Now just a quick search online will give you a considerable result of people happy to teach and take your money, but how do you know which are good or which to stay away from.
Well, in my experience over many years I had made many costly decisions by searching and following various online trainers. Until I finally got recommended to my now mentor and his training program.
The reason I looked at the training program confidently is that I saw what success my friend had achieved and that he recommended it so highly.
After I watched the Free Training, so impressed I found (even though it was by recommendation) a training program so authentic. I immediately felt the trainers genuinely wanted to see my business grow. They weren’t just interested in selling their training courses and then you never hear from them again. The opposite is actually the case. The variety of training and the consistent access to live training, recorded past training is awesome and then you also have a phenomenal community they are able to access and get support.
Are you the right fit?
Determining if you are a good fit for the training program is very important. They defiantly do their due diligence to make sure they are the right fit for you and that in turn, you are the right fit for them.
There are regular training programs and webinars daily you can plug into and learn the latest business and techniques from those who are further along the path. So they teach tested techniques and principals they know works so you don’t make the same costly mistakes.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
You also have training modules and over ten thousand courses. So if you are interested in going deeper into any aspect, you can find training courses by a quick search of the courses.
If you have read this far you have 3 decisions
You can continue as you are.
Or you can decide to figure things out yourself (probably make many mistakes)
However, I would like you to make the right decision for yourself, and therefore I would like to offer you the first three training sessions you could get for FREE. They are in video format, and you will be able to get them to your email and watch as many times as you want. You can take as many notes as you wish.
What have you too lose?
Have a look at the quality of the content, teaching and training. After the training sessions, you will have a far better experience and be in a much better position to decide if this is the program for you. You have nothing to lose.
Just enter your name email address and the FREE Training Sessions emailed to you. I will also be able to email you any information that may be helpful to you in your search for starting an online business. However, if you don’t want to receive these emails you can unsubscribe on any of the emails. You can unsubscribed immediately without question.
You can probably tell that I am very excited to be offering you this FREE training, but the moment you start watching the training you will understand why I am so excited – it is that good. However if for whatever reason you don’t think of is for you delete the email. No worries.
While reading this book, I realised I have actually skirted around many of these ideas and concepts already, just never really having any sort of confirmation. Even though I may still not yet fully understand, I know I am on the right path to understanding a lot better.
The most fascinating thing for me at this stage was learning and confirming who I am.
I am not my body. I am the person inside my body. Now even though you may think that to be an obvious concept to understand.
However, I remember a conversation I tied to have with a friend about this concept which immediately revealed he didn’t understand what I was trying to say. Thus revealing that many people have not really grasped this concept or possibly haven’t even thought about it.
The three levels of things we know or don’t know.
What we know we know.
What we know we don’t know.
What we don’t know we don’t know.
So I understand many are at the third level “What we don’t know we don’t know.”
Understand Who You Are
However, after reading the book “The Power of Now” I know I was on the right track and understand;
Who I am,
What power I have in controlling my present and
Not letting memories of the past dictate my present or future.
What a powerful realisation – I think everyone should have.
Add this book to your self-development library immediately. I am sure this is a book you will repeatedly refer back to.
If you are looking for a book to understand yourself better or understand who is actually in control of your life, get this book immediately.
This is not a quick read, you will have to pay attention to get the best results. So take time and think about the concepts. Then apply them to yourself, for the better you apply the concepts the better your self-development.
The strange realisation is, we all think we are in control of our lives and that we are so intelligent, but the truth is most are so unconscious to the reality of what is driving their lives, they have very little if any control at all.
“I speak of a profound transformation of human consciousness – not as a distant future possibility, but available now – no matter who or where you are. You are shown how to free yourself from enslavement to the mind, enter into this enlightened state of consciousness and sustain it in everyday life”
I would really be interested to know, how this book has influenced your life, what you have learnt, please comment below.
Working from home is challenging; you must be focused, disciplined and not get distracted.
Let’s be honest and let’s get real.
Even before the lockdown, I used to work from home one or two days a week. I found it difficult at times to be organised while working from home.
I’d wake up a little later than usual as I knew I didn’t have to commute. Having a cuppa while watching GMTV. Quickly put my face on in preparation for any video calls, brush my teeth, bang some washing in the machine and hey presto my commute was over! Still in my PJ bottoms and slippers.
Even though I may have a slightly relaxed start to the day, once work began, I’d carry on till late in the evening and not take any breaks. I will make dinner for the family and continue working for another couple of hours. So, although I had a pretty chilled start to the day, I did more work than if I was in the office. Only getting up from my dining room table when my back really sore and very really even took a coffee break.
Traditionally working from home has been for the privileged few, not anymore!
Managing your time can be very challenging. Especially as you try not to get distracted by last night’s dishes, Facebook, or simply just surfing the net. With no colleague or management looking over your shoulder, it’s easy to get sidetracked.
“Establish a pre-work routine and an after-work routine. Working in the same place where you wake up, eat, and sleep can make anyone go crazy without proper boundaries in place.”
For this new working from home set up to be useful long term.
Both employers and employees need to develop some effective routines and habits. Therefore ensuring employees don’t become slaves to their employers while remaining as productive as possible.
You should have tools in place to help you organise your work life. Perhaps even help you manage your work-life balance. If the tools are really great, it will also be able to help you set a plan in place to focus on your self-development.
So unplug, log off at the end of the day and take time out for your-self development.
“… Remote work isn’t a privilege or a special accommodation. It’s a way of working, and that’s a strong statement for some people. It shouldn’t be a question of rewarding top performers with the ability to work remotely.”
Don’t get me wrong I am grateful to have a job in this current climate and am more than willing to go the extra mile.
However, I still have a life and a family outside of work. Just because I am working from home doesn’t mean I cannot take a lunch break, take regular coffee breaks and finish work at a reasonable time to have some me-time and family time.
I just needed a tool to help me be more organised while I worked from home. Arranging all work schedules, home, family and me-time is important for this working from home to be successful.
Ever since I can remember I have been told to get a good education, good grades, study hard and ace your exams. This is all very important academically but what about your ongoing self-development. I believe self-development is equally as important but for many, we seem to brush it under the matt instead of making it an integral part of our lives to become a better version of ourselves.
The sheer number of courses and books focusing on self-development is staggering – where do you start?
Before picking any specific area, I would highly recommend your first stop is to work on managing your time effectively by creating a solid foundation.
Create Good habits while working from home
Stay organised, increase productivity so you can achieve your goals – for example at the close of business write down a tomorrows to-do list in priority order
Improve your work and life balance and feel happier – take time out for your self-development
Figuring out what you want from life is difficult. Yes, we all want a million pounds in a bank account but the reality is, what use is a million if you have sold your soul to your employer and don’t have the time to enjoy it.
How to make the most of each day and kick start good habits
To make the most of each day and to kick start those good habits I would recommend this Legend Planner Deluxe – It’s superb Weekly & monthly life planner, organiser, notebook and journal to ensure you hit your goals and take those all-important steps to embrace the time to self-develop yourself.
It’s undated so you can start anytime – but don’t procrastinate there is no time like the present.
Learn new skills and be the best you can be
Self-development is about being the best you can be learning new skills, applying what you learnt and grow. This can help you be more effective in your job and perhaps even give you the opportunity for promotion, but more so it’s about actively putting time aside to better yourself. As a mother, I tend to put my self last, and there is very little left in my tank at the end of the day for me.
You must set time aside to self-development
Finding the time to do self-development is always going to be a challenge irrespective of how well you plan your day. So unless you actively plan to put time aside each day, it’s unlikely you will embrace the present time but rather look back in regret.
So I suggest you get this Legend Planner Deluxe, which will allow you to be more organised as you plan your day, being more effective both in your personal and business life including your self-development.
I wish you all the best in your new roles of working from home and hope you will be able to be more effective in all your roles, especially self-development.
