Do you hate Monday? I hate Monday! I know I should be the inspired leader who says it’s all in your head, take back the power and be positive. But the truth is I hate Monday.

Monday is the death of freedom and getting back to work.

So how do we deal with it.

My success lessons tell me, use the hate and get stronger.

So, why do we hate Monday?

Because we want to be free!

How do we get free?

Unshakeable Part 4 – Real Wealth

Featured picture by Taylor Ann Wright

What follows are the direct lessons I learned from Tony Robbins’ book Unshakeable. It is full of invaluable lessons on how to achieve real wealth. I highly recommend you get yourself a copy. It’s totally worth the investments. Get Unshakeable here.

Part 1

In Part 1, we looked at how to become unshakeable, in both life and investing. The secret, is to know the facts. If you know the facts and the potential problems, then you can prepare. By being psychologically, physically, mentally and financially prepared, you can face any problem from a position of strength.

Part 2

In Part 2, we learnt that to be successful in life and investing, you must know the rules and the principles of the game. Our focus was on investing, but it’s the same for life. If you know the core principles of how to win, or you learn them by following successful people, and you apply them, then you will have a great chance of success.

Part 3

In Part 3, we saw that to become truly unshakeable we need to face fear and avoid the common mistakes that are natural for us to make. Again, by being prepared for fear and being aware of these common mistakes, we can be ready to overcome and start winning.

Part 4

In Part 4, we put it all together to look at what winning really means. It’s time to get real wealth, by dedicating to a life of fulfilment and to becoming unshakeable in our pursuit of success.

I used to think that the biggest problem with the world was that the rich get richer and the poor stay poor. However, I’m starting to learn that the difference between being rich and poor comes down to a couple of key things. Those things are knowledge and attitude.

With the right knowledge and attitude it’s possible to go from poor to extremely wealthy.

But it takes education. The kind of education we don’t teach kids in school.

The need for financial education sparked my desire to learn these lessons and to teach others.

Here’s what I learned from reading Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad.

As I start this post, I realise that I have never really defined success.

I guess I should have a whole post outlining what success is. However, I feel success is different for everyone.

Success is simply achieving those things that will bring fulfilment to you and your life.

It will be different for everyone, but once you achieve fulfilment in your life, you will feel truly successful.

This definition of success I got from a truly inspirational mentor: Tony Robbins. Today I will cover the 4 things that he taught me that really made a huge difference in my mission for success.
I like to call them Tony’s 4 S’s to success:

– Story
– State
– Strategy
– Standards

Success Lesson:

When you feel lost and a bit overwhelmed it’s probably the perfect time to take a rest. It’s time to take stock and get back on track by setting more goals.

How to be a Success by Mastering the art of Sales

Being a teacher, sales is not my area of expertise. However, after a brief study of the subject I quickly learned the catch phrase: ‘Sales are everything’. Now, I don’t know if I’d go to that extreme, but selling is something we as humans do all the time.

As a teacher, I sell students ideas and concepts all the time. In fact, we as a society sell each other ideas all the time. Not only that, but we sell ourselves. We sell ourselves as employees, we sell ourselves as a mate and we sell ourselves as friends. Then depending on our career, we may sell a product or a service, or our ideas to influence others.

Therefore, sales is a vital skill. One that schools don’t always teach to a high level.

Many schools do cover elements of selling. In English class, you may remember studying advertising; maybe you critiqued ad’s, or maybe you analysed persuasion, or maybe you even creatively made an advertising campaign for a product.

However, sales go much deeper than this.

It is a vital skill that should be part of the school curriculum – especially for students whose dreams and passions are to be successful in the business, social, political … well in any area of the modern world.
