So I am writing this because I know many people experience what it is like to be defeated. In fact, one of the reasons why I am familiar is not only because I coach people, but I often am defeated myself.
You see, my batting average in business deals me about 8 defeats for every 10 prospects I meet. It basically means I have very thick skin. The trouble isn’t the defeat, but it is the defeatist attitude that I want to challenge today.
I was reminded by Facebook about what I posted some years ago. These still hold true. I think anyone who wants to start their journey in training should begin to assimilate practices for speaking. You can join my Persuasion Academy program to kickstart your ability to speak powerfully and authentically. However, I also hope that the folk at IAL don’t condone mediocrity. Had a chat with one of the associate trainers there who also realizes that the quality of the training there has declined. Here’s what I said before and I’ll repeat:
“A: Do you procrastinate?
B: I’ll have to get back to you tomorrow about that…”
We live in a world that demands much out of us. Every single day, there are things that are expected of us, that we have to deliver. Things such as work, expectations from family, and even things that we privately want to do but seem to have limited time resources to reach there. As a result, inner stress builds up, and it turns into us stepping into the dark side of our personality. Procrastination becomes a kind of solace.
After being involved in the world of personal development, I come to realize that there are so many training programs that are out there that are not fully being utilized by participants. The reason why say this is because you can walk out of any kind of training program and still not reap the maximum benefits of it simply because you either forget, or find it difficult to apply the concepts.
If anything, the concept of Flow is related to personal development for athletes as much as anyone who wants to create peak performance in their lives. I want to introduce how you can get into flow much faster using a strategy in NLP and hypnosis called time distortion.
When you have many things happening in your mind, and you’re focus is sporadic, time seems to fly by. an hour is wasted and you really get 10 minutes worth of work done.
Conversely, when you get really still, time seems to stay still. Give it a go – sit for a minute and just focus on your heart beat and breathing.
This one is for the people who are speakers, coaches and trainers. If you have wanted a platform to scale on the internet, this is it. Head down here to Everlesson Training Videos. Subscribe to that video channel so that you can hear more about the best training and learning platform that there is there.
If you want to extend your business, Everlesson is probably the best thing out there, and you will want to stay tuned to more upcoming trainings related to Everlesson on the Youtube channel.
If you’ve ever wondered what NLP was and wanted a walk through of some of the tools that helps it to make people successful, you will want to join in my NLP Masterclass. For a limited time period only, this program will be open to a group of beta testers who will then get an opportunity to ask me questions “LIVE” on a webinar. I am limiting this to 100 places, and there’s already 800 people on my list, so grab your link here:
Register and get immediate access to my videos in three separate installments (over 7 video and learning components).
I wake up to the tiredness that feels like a vice gripping my face almost every morning. Then, I remember that this is a small part of the process. I sit up, change my breathing, and think about what I’m grateful for. I immerse myself in the emotion that fills me when I think of those moments of gratitude, pick up a genuine smile, before I stand up to tumble to the washroom.
Step 1: Get into a comfortable place where it is relatively silent.
Step 2: Recognize as many things that are going on around you as possible.
Step 3: Recognize as many things that are in your mind as possible.
Step 4: Begin to focus on your breathing, noticing only your breath as you breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Step 5: Acknowledge all the things that are in your mind or around you, and mentally “let go”. Some speak the phrase “I let you go”. Others simply move on to refocus attention on breathing and allow distractions to fade away.
You can’t prove anything about your mindset if you’re not going through something tough.
You need to establish your direction clearly FIRST before you drive yourself to take massive action, or else you’re going to be barking up the wrong tree.
You have to be like the Hunter that begins early in the morning with clear intention and fervour, knowing that his children will starve if he does not do his job.
You cannot afford the luxury of a negative thought. It will consume you and eat you up inside. It will leave you no space for getting the life you want.
