Kevin Biggar will Blow Your Mind…

Kevin is one of those  few people who will totally INSPIRE YOU to unleash your inner power. He embodies the meaning of personal power to defeat any limitation we think we have.

In a few words, Kevin is the one who made the impossible Possible!

I was fortunate enough to attend one of his conferences back in December. In fact, I wasn’t expecting to attend any conferences that day, but it is one of those things that just happen. I went there with zero expectations. To be honest, I didn’t even know who was the presenter and when I finally got there and heard the name, I still didn’t know who he was because…. I don’t watch any TV or News at all).

(Kevin if you’re reading this sorry about that but, it’s the truth :P)

As I was saying… I had no expectations for what was about to happen and perhaps that was one of the best things!

At first glance, Kevin looks like a typical Kiwi (New Zealander), tall athletic, nice blue eyes with a witty, professional look but at the same time, sort of … laid back. Giving his audience a sense of  “hey! he’s a normal guy like me!”. I can relate to that!

His presentation begun and as I was listening to what he had to say, watching his videos, laughing at his crack up personality and after having my mind blown away by his C-R-A-Z-Y stories. You realize that he is not just another KiwiJust as Sir Edmund Hillary who was ‘a former Bee-Keeper from Auckland, New Zealand and also the one who -alongside Tenzing Norgay -became the first climbers to conquer the summit of Mount Everest on May, 1953Kevin Biggar is also -on his own way- a Conqueror.

Once his presentation ended, I came out of the room feeling Empowered, Inspired, and knowing for a fact that I could conquer any of the goals I had. I just needed to re-evaluate my strategies and make them more efficient.

Kevin Biggar‘s presentation had a transformational affect on me. After his presentation, I approached him and asked him if I could interview him. Fortunately enough, Kevin agreed to our interview 🙂

So now I can share his story and excellent advice with YOU. ( Yes, You =) ).

See? I care about you my darling! The thing is, I KNOW that Kevin’s impressive stories can IMPACT you as much as it did me and his effect would be even more powerful if you attend some of his workshops.

Kevin Biggar will help you become better than what you already are and he will teach you how to set goals to Successfully ACHIEVE THEM in spite of how crazy you might think they seem to be!

Kevin will inspire you to UNLEASH Your Inner Power.

So… Who is Kevin Biggar?

From a professional man with an established career , holding a physics degree and a masters, transitioning then as a self-confessed couch potato, before he was transformed into a world record beating endurance athlete in 2003 winning a huge-endurance 5000 Km Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race.

Rowing for the first time in his life alongside a team partner, who he had only met 6 weeks before the race, they not only won, they set a New world record!

The pair then went on to achieve a much tougher challenge in 2007 – as the first ever kiwi team to complete an unsupported trek from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole – a 52 day, 1,200km journey on foot, each towing a 160 kilogram sled in temperatures as freezing as -40 degrees Celsius.

Kevin has written two books about his exploits, the award winning ‘Oarsome Adventures of a Fat Boy Rower’ and ‘Escape to the Pole’.

Alongside Jamie Fitzgerald, his rowing team partner,  they co host a TV Series ‘Intrepid NZ’ – recreating the adventures of pioneering NZ explorers.

Kevin will entertain you with his adventures, and share with us what he has learnt about facing challenges from rowing across the Atlantic Ocean and Trekking to from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.

Check out a brief summary of my Interview with Kevin Biggar

Kevin, At what point did you decide to do something different? What was your why?

Kevin: I was going  through a quarter life crisis. I just turned 33 years old. I started to think about what I had and hadn’t achieve and what I was ever going to achieve. For the first time, it didn’t feel like I had all the time in the world to do everything and if I wanted to do something that I wanted to do, NOW was the time.

Would you mind sharing the story about your mum and your decision to take part of the Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race?

Mom decided that the only way we would get a result (an agreement) was to ask to her favourite TV show and they will decided if I should go or not. Since then I’ve met all of them and I’ve individually thank all the members.

I see your 5’000 Km trans-Atlantic rowing race as the race across the ocean of life.
At some point in our lives, there we are in front of this vast ocean of life not knowing WHAT to do or HOW to do things. Some people follow the regular path society imposes whereas others like, Us the entrepreneurs, choose to do something different, something that others may call “crazy” or   “unreasonable”. In your case, you had no previous experience rowing but you TOOK ACTION…. HOW did you map out your plan of action?

Kevin Biggar: Just to clarify, I had no experience rowing when I had the Idea of getting to row, but that was 2 years before the race. So by the time it started out I was very strong.

I think that one of the most important things when you step out to do things you don’t normally do is to find somebody who is doing what you think you are gonna do. For me was a really powerful moment when I met somebody else who had row across the ocean. I met a guy called Rob Hamill , he was a kiwi guy who had won the first Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race and when I met him I saw he  was just a normal person. If he was a normal person and he could row across the ocean then I am a normal person too so I should be able to row across the ocean too and suddenly it doesn’t seem like something extraordinary, but like something that if you plan a method you can achieve.

Whatever people is going to do or think of doing, there is always a little sub-culture, a little sub-tribe of who is doing those things. And once you meet them it suddenly becomes more straightforward of how realistic it is to take on this challenges.

Holy cow! if that shmuck could achieve things from sitting on his mom’s couch, well think of how much I can do from where I am starting now. (Kevin Biggar)

If you really want to take on something brave. It’s not about having no fear, it is not about being really tough. It’s just about having a simple method and breaking down the tasks into little steps and  building up the momentum on taking on the tasks.

The first  thing to do is to meet people who have done similar things to what you want to achieve and start talking to them and getting a plan.

Now I teach people on my workshops that if you want to take on anything, then it is just a question of learning the skills and backing yourself up.

It’s all about the mindset…

Kevin Biggar: I don’t think it’s all about the mindset. I think that to take on any big challenge, it’s all just about having a process where you set little milestones early on. You meet the right people and you gradually get drawn into it. If you set up a system where you make the process towards what you want to achieve more fun. There is a little bit of discipline and willpower involved, but I don’t think a system to success should  be based on been hugely staunch.

Anyone can achieve a huge amount!

The only reason why they don’t try is that they believe they are lacking a certain mysterious ‘X-factor’ that successful people have but in fact it’s not quite how it works. All they are missing are the skills that can be learnt. Like ‘how to keep persistent’ or ‘how to deal with cravings, etc.  These are things that can be taught and I teach this things myself on my workshops.

What were the biggest challenges that you encounter?

Kevin Biggar: The biggest challenge that I encountered was getting to the ‘start’ line. Also, possibly in both cases another challenge was raising the money and finding the sponsorship. That was the hardest part and that’s when you are knocking on a lot of doors, getting rejected day after day. You are putting in your own money to keep things at float and at any time you could quit and it wouldn’t be a big deal. But when you are in the race, or when you are walking up to the south pole it is much harder to quit. (…) Kevin then explains some of the challenges he and his partner Jamie faced during their rowing race and while trekking Antarctica.

Making an analogy between someone who has decided to make a career change and start  new business with you at your Rowing race across the Atlantic or,  with your trek across the South Pole in Antarctica. You didn’t start it just for the sake of doing something different, You did it to WIN. Was that your major goal?

Yes, in the south pole, our major goal was to trek  unsupported and unresupplied. We put all of our own food and fuel from the start. Yes, we did it to WIN.

The key thing for people starting their own businesses it is having a mentor. Someone who  knows what are the odds if something pops out.(…) Someone to ask you what your business plan is, what your marketing plan is right at the very start before you invest lots of time and money.(…) There is a lot to be said by someone who is just a couple of years further on the road than you and see what they’ve learnt from the systems that they’ve put in place. I am big fan of getting in a group of people who is doing similar things.

Once you were in your race and things got tough. How did you get the motivation to keep going?

There’s a motivation in keeping your environment set up in such a way that it helps you. When  you are on a boat and all you  can do is row and if you don’t get up to do your shift then your team mate doesn’t get in to sleep. Then, it’s not so hard to get up. We didn’t have any other options. (…)Your life becomes simple and that’s what I do now in terms of motivation.(…) I met  with someone who is in a complete different business than me and all we do is we hold each other accountable for the goals that we set or we are going to set (…)That is massively motivating for me because I don’t want to let this guy down.

Do you think you can compare your situation in the ocean as a life-threatening situation?

No, I felt safe… I felt safe up until the moment when I nearly died (laughs). I talked about that in the speech (…). Trekking to the south pole I felt more like we were gonna die. It was really easy for a little thing to snowball and  go wrong (…)

That reminds me of this  quote “When you want to succeed as hard as you want to breath, then you will succeed”

Kevin Biggar: Well that is exactly the kind of advice that I think is bad advice. I have rules of advice, I call them my laws of bullshit.

  1. If you hear something and the opposite is also true, then you know you are getting bad advice. (refer to audio for great examples)
  2. If the advice sounds correct but it requires me to be superhuman then that’s not good advice either. (refer to audio for great examples)

 

A Great tip that helped you keep yourself motivated…

Getting some coaches and a business mentor. The people who I took great attention of in the build-up  was my coach called Jon Ackland from Performance Lab and if anyone is thinking of doing an ultra-marathon adventure or some sort of extreme outdoor adventure then he would be a fantastic person to speak to because he understands performance and the athletic world. To get an hour with Jon is to get some very powerful lessons.

What do you think is the one thing that prevents most entrepreneurs from taking action & What advice can you give them?

Fear of the consequences, fear of what can get wrong. That is certainly what almost stopped me from taking part of the transatlantic rowing race. (…) The key thing is to make certain that there is a safety net underneath you so make sure  that you are not risking everything – unless you are  the sort of person that can find that particularly motivation or you are particularly young-. If you are 21 then you could go broke, but if you are 35 with 2 kids then that is not so appealing.

It’s about looking at the risks wide-eyed and making sure you’ve got the wort case scenario sorted. So if the worst case happens then you should be able to survive it. (…)and definitely HAVING A PLAN, even if you change the plan later, it is much better to start off with a plan and then change the plan as a result of the information you learn. I’m guilty myself of living day to day in the business and not thinking about where I want to be in a year’s time and working backwards from there.

IN SUMMARY…

If you are looking to make a career change, to become an entrepreneur and start your own business, these are the main points I’ve gotten from Kevin Biggar’s advice.

      1. Surround yourself with people who have done similar things to what you want to achieve.
      2. Get yourself a Mentor  or a Coach, someone who has been where you are at and it is exactly where you want to be.
      3. Learn the skills and methods necessary to succeed in your area of choice.
      4. Have a PLAN of Action from the beginning, know where you are going to and be flexible to change/adapt that plan according to circumstances that serve your purpose.

With these 4 things in place, You can achieve whatever you want to achieve. Remember, It is not about trying hard but about trying Smart.

77 ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ quotes by Robert Kiyosaki.

Have you read Rich Dad, Poor Dad from Robert Kiyosaki?

The first time I read “RichDad, Poor Dad”, it was probably
between my 14 or 15’s I LOVE reading and this kind of
books were always part of our shelves thanks to mum.

Mum always ensure that we feed our minds with valuable
information besides what I learnt at school, I was a curious
little girl and she always allowed me to express myself
and respected my own –sometimes weird– opinions.

Oh mum, you always gave me the right foundation for my success.

I guess I was being a wealthypreneur without even knowing
what being a wealthypreneur meant back then.

Ok, let’s get back on track! :P… To be honest, it has already
been 12 years since I read it  for the first time and I couldn’t
remember much.

Since last year up until now I’ve listened to the “rich dad, poor dad”
audiobook probably about 10 times, and just recetly I decided
to buy the book again and read it. This time, in english.
(FYI, I’m from Peru so the first time I read it, it was in Spanish)

I started reading the book 2 days ago, and I don’t wanna finish it!
One of my rules is listen to an audio for about 1 hr and read for
about 1 hour. I usually do this right after my morning meditation,
as soon as I wake up. It is one of my rituals.

So yes, you might be saying… Ameli, you spend 2 hours reading
and listening to audios?… 2 HOURS??!!!
YES,  and I call this Investing in myself. I know that my mindset
and my time are my biggest asset so I choose to invest in them
to then, apply what I know not only in businesses, but also in
my life. Nowadays time for me is not a problem anymore as I am
a full time online entrepreneur so I can distribute my time as I please.
Of course, I get distracted sometimes!

Now before I say anything else, I’ll share with you some of
my favourite and …

Powerful quotes from “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”

#5  For when you blame your boss or someone else about situations in YOUR LIFE

“You’d Best Change your point of view. Stop blaming me, thinking I’m the problem. If you think I’m the problem, then you have to change me. If you realize that you ‘re the problem, then you can change yourself,  learn something and grow wiser. Most people want everyone else in the world to change but themselves. Let me tell you, it’s easier to change yourself than everyone else”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#8

“‘Will a job be the best solution to this fear (the fear of not having enough money) over the long run?’ In my opinion, the answer is ‘no’. Especially when you look over a person’s lifetime. A job is really a short-term solution to a long-term problem” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#9

#11

“Unfortunately for many people, school is the end, not the beginning” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#16About Professions, Businesses and your Career….

“There is a big difference between your profession and your business. I often ask people “What is your business?” And they will say “Oh, I’m a banker”. Then, I ask them if they own the bank? And they usually respond “No, I work there” (…)  A problem with school is that you often become what you study (…) The mistale in becoming what you study is that too many people forget to mind their own business. They spend their lives minding someone else’s business and making that person rich” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

ROBERT KIYOSAKI QUOTES RICH DAD POOR DAD, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, WEALTHYPRENEURS

#17

“When I say mind your own business, I mean to build and keep your asset column strong”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#18

#21

“I’d rather be welcoming change than dreading change”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#22

#23 For people who refuse to change…

“Old ideas are their biggest liability. It is a liability simply because they fail to realize that while that idea or way of doing something was an asset yesterday, yesterday is gone”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#24

“Rich people are often creative and take calculated risks”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#25 – Reasons to increase your financial intelligence…

“Few people realize that luck is created. Just as money is. And if you want to be luckier and create money instead of working hard, then your financial intelligence is important. If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the “right” thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#26

“The single most powerful asset we all have is our mind. If it’s trained well, it can create enormour wealth (…) An untrained mind can also create extreme poverty that lasts lifetimes by teaching it to their families” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

ROBERT KIYOSAKI QUOTES RICH DAD POOR DAD,  YOUR MIND IS YOUR BIGGEST ASSET, WEALTHYPRENEURS

#27

“So why develop your financial genius? Only you can answer that (…) I develop my financial IQ because I want to participate in the fastest game and the biggest game in the world. (…) That is why I invest in my financial intelligence, developing the most powerful asset I have. I want to be with people moving boldly forward. I do not want with those left behind.”  (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#28

“Simple math and common sense is all that is needed to do well financially”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#29

“Great opportunities are not seen with your yes, they are seen with your mind. Most people never get wealthy because they are not trained financially to recognize opportunities right in front of them (…) To find an opportunity that everyone else has missed. You see with your mind what others miss with their eyes”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#29 – Taking the road to financial freedom…

“Always remember to have fun. This is only a game. Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. But have fun. Most people never win because they are more afraid of losing. That is why I found school so silly. In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk. The same is true for learning to ride a bike. (…) The same is true for getting rich. Unfortunately, the main reason most people are not reach is because they are terrified of losing. Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#30

  “It is what you know that is your greatest wealth. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk. There is always risk, so learn to manage risk instead of avoid it.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #31 – What is financial Intelligence?

 “Financial intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing and law. Combine those four technical skills and making money with money is easier. “(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#32 – About a “JOB”

“Job is an acronym for Just Over Broke” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#33

“Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won’t quit” And if you look at the pay scales of most companies, again I would say there is a degree of truth in that statement” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#34

” The net results is that most workers never get ahead. They do what they’ve taught to do: “get a secure job.” Most workers focus on working for oay and benefits that reward them in the short term, but is often disastrous in the long run” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #35 – Before choosing your career path…

“Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acqure before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the “Rat Race”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #36 – What is the Rat Race??

“Once people are trapped in the lifelong process of billpaying, they become like those little hamsters running around in those little metal wheels. Their little furry legs are spinning furiously, the wheel is turning furiusly, but come tomorrow morning, they’ll still be in the same cage: great job”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#37 – So, what to do??

“When I speak to adults who want to earn more money, I always recommend the same thing (…) Often I recommend joining a network marketing company, also called multilevel marketing, if they ant to learn sales skills. Some of these companies have excellent training programs that help people get over their fear of failure and rejection, which are the main reasons people are unsuccesful. EDUCATION is more valuable than money, in the long run”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#38

“The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on building a “better hamburguer” (using the example of McDonald’s) and know little to nothing about business systems” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#39

“My poor dad said, “you need to know a lot about one specialty.” My rich dad said, “you need to learn a little about a lot of things”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#40

“Poor dad wanted me to specialize. That was his view on how to be paid more. Even after being told by the governor of Hawaii that he could no longer work in state government (…) He never understood that the more specialized you become, the more you are trapped and dependent on that specialty”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#41

“The main management skills needed for success are: 1. The management of cashflow; 2, The management of systems (including yourself and time with family); 3. The management of people”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#42

“It is communication skills such as writing, speaking and negotiating that are crucial to a life of success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#43

“Rich dad encouraged Mike and me to know a little about a lot. He encouraged us to work with people smarter than we were and to bring smart people together to work as a team. Today it would be called a synergy of professional specialties”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #44

“If you hate risk and worry…. start early”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#45

“The greatest reason for lack of financial success was because most people played it too safe. “People are so afraid of losing that they lose” were my rich dad’s words” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#46

“Rich dad knew that failure would only make him stronger and smarter”  (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#47

“Failure inspires winners and failure defeat losers. It is the biggest secret of winners”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#48

“The main reason that over 90 percent of the American publis struggles financially is because they play not to lose. They don’t play to win” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#49

“If you have little money and you want to be rich, you must first be “focused”, not “balanced”. If you look at anyone successful, at the start they were not balanced. Balanced people go nowhere. They stay in one spot. To make progress, you must first go unbalanced. Just look at how you make progress walking” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#50

“If you have any desire to be rich, you must focus. Put a lot of your eggs in a few baskets. Do not do what poor and middle-class people do: put thir few eggs in many baskets” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#51

“Staking the asset column is a high-attitude game.  It takes guts, patience and a great attitude toward failure. Losers aoid failing. And failure turns losers into winers”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#52

“How do you beat laziness? The answer is a little greed. IT’s that radio station WII-FM, which stands for ‘What’s In It-For Me?’ A person needs to sit and ask, “What’s in it for me if I’m healthy, sexy and good looking?”or “what would my life be like if I never had to work again?” Without that little greed, the desire to have something better, progress is not made. Our world progresses because we all desire a better life (…) So whenever you find yourself avoiding something you knwo you should be doing, then the only thing to ask yourself is “What’s in it for me?”Be a little greedy. It’s the best cure for laziness. ” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #53

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right -for you’ll be criticized anyway.  You’ll b damned if you do, and damned if you don’t “- Eleanor Roosevelt. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#54

#75

“It’s what is in your head what determines what is in your hands. Money is only an idea. There is a great book Think and Grow Rich. The tittle is not work hard and grow rich. Learn to have money work hard for you and your life will be easier and happier.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #77

“Awaken the financial genious that lies within you. Your genious is waiting to come out” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

After 4 days reading this book again, I’ve to admit I felt
a bit bumped when Robert said “Thank You for reading this book”
it is such a good book and there is so much great info that
I didn’t want to finish it. But, at the same time… There are more
books to read and knowledge to acquire.

As You might very well understand now, Your mindset is your biggest asset
fill it with the right information. But also, it’s not only about new information
and learning but also about TAKING ACTION towards the new things
you learn.

I hope you understand that “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” it is not about
real estateor the share market.  Robert gives this as his examples because
it is his business and his passion and he knows how to play the game of money.

Whatever your career is, and the path you have chosen – or ar about to choose-
make sure you add in some of the skills Robert mentions all along his book
and that I’ve tried to quote in this post.

Remember… TAKE ACTION towards the opportunites in front of you!

That is  what I did to get out of my “rat race”, and now I’m able to work
from home -or wherever I happen to be- from my computer, build my
empire. It is normal to feel confused at the beginning, it is normal to feel
fear and it is normal to fail. Failure is the way to success and as long
as you Learn, it is not failure. So TAKE ACTION, do it for yourself
for the life you deserve and for what you want to achieve. I share some of the
the education I’ve acquired about building my own business,
marketing, branding, selling on my private facebook group that you can access for free.
So you can learn some vital steps to Succeed in business!

[Friday motivation] – The 6 Secrets To Success by Arnold Schwarzenegger

I came across this video and
I decided to share it with you. It
made me think about the secret

to success.
 

But…what is the secret to success??

Is it maybe sacrificing your own life
to climb the ladder of your job?

Is it spending more than 40 hours a week
on a job that doesn’t leave you any time left
to do the things that you love? and that …
you’ll eventually get to hate.

Is it living pay-check to pay-check?

The 6 Secrets To Success Arnold Schwarzenegger-Wealthypreneurs

You have come to this world 
to be nothing but The Best Version of YOURSELF.
As Arnie said…
“It doesn’t matter what you are but WHO
you want to be. WHAT makes YOU happy?”
Watching this video reminded me of my own story,
quitting my MD job to pursue my own FREEDOM.
The journey hasn’t been easy but life is so beautiful
when you focus on your vision and you decide to
take action, ignoring the naysayers.
Choose Your Own FREEDOM! 
Don’t aspire to make a living,
Aspire to Make A Difference.
YOU CAN DO IT!
 
Love & Light,
 
~ Amelí

99% of online businesses fail, here’s how you can be in the 1%

Someone told me this morning “If you want to succeed you have to put in the effort”.

We all want to be successful, we all want to achieve our ultimate dreams,
99% of those people is willing to take determined action and put the right effort into it, and that road only leads to one place: FAILURE CITY.

So the question here is HOW BAD do You really want it??
What are you willing to do to achieve even your craziest goal??

I have to be honest here, for different reasons, I haven’t been blogging as much as I should these last days.  I would point out exactly the reasons why I couldn’t, but in that pack there are also some excuses and as the saying goes…..

If your excuses are bigger than your dreams, then your dream is not big enough!

So I figured, I better get back into blogging! -on the other hand, I also miss it!-

So WHY do 99% of businesses fail?? and…. How can YOU be in that not-ordinary 1%??. Easy!, This is what you should NOT be doing:

  1. FREE TIME & PROCRASTINATION:

    When you work for yourself,  when you are your own boss, when you work from home -or no home- NOONE is going to sit next to you and tell you.
    “Ok ABC, this is what you need to do while handling you a list -from 1 to 10- of things you need to do”.
    So You can choose to…

A. BE SUCCESSFUL:

  • You have already ORGANIZED your productive activities for the next day the night before.
  • You PRIORITIZE the important or harder tasks first time and the easiest ones to the end.
  • You Wake Up Early and at the same time everyday (you’re actually doing a favour to your brain and those neurons :)! )

B. FAIL:

  • The lazy bum, gets out of bed after 9+ am.
  • Waste the whole morning on facebook (the BIGGEST data & waste social media if used in a non-productive way),
  • Maybe spend some time on your bum watching TV and eating some chips.
  • There’s no productive/smart Organization of your day.

To be a clear here, YES, there is anyone pushing you an forcing you to do some work. But if you want your business to succeed, you need to treat it like a business, be responsible and get things done ON TIME. Only your effort, your commitment and the passion you put into your work will get you the results that you want. And something super important is: You Need to DO what you LOVE and what motivates you. Because that love and that motivation is going to be your strength when you feel down, because… yes my dear. There are going to be times  where you’ll fill exhausted and down. Life is not perfect!, there are always up and downs.  And here is when your core motivation comes to the rescue, to boost you up with a huge those of motivation, inspiration & strenght :).

 

  1. THE MESSY PILE OF PAPERS:

    A lot of people would think this is not important. As long as they know where they’ve left their “stuff” that’s alright. Meanwhile their desks look more like a recycling collection place with heaps documents/papers/books/receipts/ magazines/ newspapers/big notes/ little notes/ post-it’s/ fake post-it’s etc etc… all mixed up with pens, pencils, cables, plates and anything random you can imagine. (You get the picture).

Well.. guess what?? That’s a NO NO NO. AVOID IT AT ALL PRICES!!!
Why?… Because

  • You are making it harder for your brain to focus, and provide you with the ideas/inspiration & resources you need!. A messy environment is only going to fill your mind with the same sh**t you’ve got around you.
  • Your desk is your personal area, your area of work. If it is all dirty and messy. It is only a subconscious reflection of what you have inside.
  • What you have inside will reflect in the way you manage your business. Yes, it is a cycle.

 

  1. CONSISTENCY IS KEY

    If you study successful people, you will realize the they all have ONE thing in common. They are all CONSISTENT no matter what!.

Once you have a vision and you set your goal, create a plan and strategize to achieve that goal. Every single day is an opportunity to grow, and every single day you need to take massive determined action, CONSISTENTLY.

As Neil Patel said today in our webcast, when he was blogging consistently, he was getting leads and results every single day. He stopped for a period of time and it took him about 3 months to recover the amount of visitors and leads he was previously getting.

In my personal experience, previously I have been blogging consistently up until the last blogging challenge. I was getting heaps of traffic, comments,  visitors, people emailing me and subscribing to my list. There was action and it felt good!. After a couple of days I got some people asking about my posts. It is going to be 2 weeks now and guess how many visitors I get daily now??? Yeah…. not so many….

Is it Clear??? BE CONSISTENT and No Matter WHAT BE CONSISTENT!. The little steps from today will pay you back in the future. And once you look back you’ll see how FAR you have gotten. You will know more than what you know today and eventually you’ll just be a better person, maybe a totally different person :)!

  1. THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU

Unsuccessful people, believe that they can do it all on their own. They do not delegate and they believe they already know it all, that’s why hey do not take advice of other people, they do not listen to others and that is also why… they are not successful.


Successful people, look to connect with like-minded people. They join together often to brainstorm and change ideas. Like exactly what we do in our amazing masterminds. They care and support each other to build up their own business. They understand that the key of success lays in joining a community and working as a team, being accountable while respecting your own independence. It is like a relationship!!

If your partner/boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife tells you to do everything their own way, and you have to be next to them 24/7 as if you were a teddy bear and you have no voice whatsoever. Where is that relationship going to end?? FAILING!.

On the other hand if within the relationship, each of you respect your own differences and actually use those differences to grow, communicate, understand each other and even push each other. Things are going to be so much better! And that relationship will SUCCEED :).

  1. EDUCATE AND INVEST IN YOURSELF

    Successful People,is continuously educating themselves, whether they chose to go to a training, a seminar, an update, study & read the new trends. Successful people is always looking to learn more, to innovate. Want examples??: Search the most successful Gurus, Leaders & Entrepreneurs in the world: Richard Branson, Donald Trump, Hiro Kiyosaki, Anthony Robbins, etc etc.

    Unsuccessful people, think that learning new things is a waste of time, their ego makes them so blind and dumb that they can not see the world changes continuously. They believe they already know it all but with that attitude they actually know nothing. They are not coachable and unwilling to learn. Therefore they get stuck in bumps they have created to themselves along their way.

So these are the tips you need to apply to be part of the 1% and have a successful business. It may sound easy, it may sound simple and you can say right now “bah… easy-peacy”. If that’s you, nice! Then challenge yourself to follow them and applying them on a DAILY basis NO-MATTER-WHAT.
And a great way for you to start is by blogging consecutively for 21 days. Why 21 days??. Because it takes 21 days of consistent action to develop a habit.

So get your things sorted and start working to your success!!

 

Tomorrow I’ll continue with My Website Series 🙂

See you on my next post.

Amelí Speaks.

power of the mind wealthypreneursI have always been fascinated by the human mind and the way it works .
one of the reasons why I engaged with medicine was because I wanted
to understand the human being, 
learn everything from it.

I have spent the last decade of my life between studying in med-school
and working as a Medical Doctor 
trying to understand the human mind
and how our body, our systems work.

And guess what? after all this time, my question was never totally answered. I started with the intention of being a Psychiatrist, but the approach from psychiatry I was introduced to was so disappointing.

The medicine they taught me was only focused on the physical body, the
biochemicals, the cells. Which – don’t get me wrong – are extremely important

but it disregards completely the POWER of the human mind
– which to me is as much as important-.

Just because it can not understand it and, in fact, most of the medicine
they teach at the undergraduate level 
totally ignores everything related
to other sources outside medicine per se that mention the power of
the human mind, 
the power of belief!, the power of energy, the power of the word.

Even when it has been proved the power of emotions and its effect in our
immune system,
in our endocrine system or  its influence in our body,
in the power of healing.

I proved it in myself, with my mother, and even with my own patients
and yet, they just didn’t want to see it.

There is evidence, there are studies from Psychology journals, but the
medical industry disregards all that, 
not giving it the value it deserves.
Contaminating instead with chemicals, 
pills, substances, electrical treatments
and man-made “medicines” that sometimes injure your whole system
giving you more side effects 
than the symptoms of the disease you initially
had. And, ironically, people dies FOR and FROM them.

That kind of “medicine” –which shouldn’t be called medicine on the first place,
because MEDICINE is such a beautiful word 
that carries a deep pure meaning-
believes it is the one an only who is right.
Something like the superhero –boosted– ego that the United States
has with the “rest of the world”.
Captain america?, yeah right!….that is soooo BS.
America is, on the first place, a whole continent that carries 55 countries
and several “United States” like The United Mexican States, The Republic of the
United States of Brazil and so with other countries in the list… which are
all –once again– in America.
– To my US friends & family, please don’t take it personal —

Going back to where I was… I could have never talk about some
of the things I believed in or the courses I independently took 
and studied
on my own with most of my colleagues. If I did, it was only with people
who had the same
curiosity or belief as mine, we were few.
Including my own mother whose sometimes I deliberately shut
up a
couple of times when I was polluted with the “medical teaching” just
because it was too confusing
to think and try to understand that while
I had heaps of patients at the hospital to deal with or just

because I couldn’t explain them or just because they didn’t prove the
sequence or scheme of a “correct” 
research or case study (The evidence is not substantial)

And now, after all this time, I am finally… FINALLY with people who
knows more about this, 
people who applies it in their lives EVERYDAY
and are creating amazing, successful results.

They genuinely share every-step-on-their-road. So we know what and
what not to do.
I am learning from the best ones 
to become One of the Best Ones.
We are the FORCE, a unified force fighting the forces of evil

in a mission to build wealth and help people around the world,
to show the light in the path of
those ones who are
ready to help themselves

I am finally learning what I have always wanted to learn,
what I was eager to learn, know and understand.

This is like the specialty I always wanted to do and I feel so happy
and glad that I made a decision that has changed my life in ways I wouldn’t imagine
and It makes me even happier to realize that I am also helping people change their
lives in ways they wouldn’t have ever imagined 🙂

If someone asks me What is Success??

Success is Doing what You Love, what allows you to help others
while building the wealth to
give them the lifestyle, the best opportunities
in life and take care of the people you dearly love.

And I am building my way to Success. I am Happy, I am definitely Happy.

 

What are YOU waiting for?

What other call do you need?
For how long do you want to keep struggling

until you finally made the decision to break chains and give to your family,
to your loved ones the lifestyle they DESERVE,
the BEST opportunities and the best memories in their lives?

It is all within You.
You have the power to make your life better.

You have the power to make the rest of your life THE BEST of Your life.
You have wasted enough time already and even when it is never too late,
Why would you choose to keep struggling for longer if you can start NOW
and build the life of your dreams?

 

BE YOUR OWN SUPERHERO.

What I wish someone had told me right after I finished University: The difference of being Successful vs Being Significant by Derek Handley

I was playing one of my youtube videos to write a post about it, but just before it started, an ad showed up. I usually skip them but there was something special about this video.

Let me introduce to you Derek Handley – or Adjunct Executive Professor Derek Handley’s from AUT University-. The message he shared in his speech the last December 14th to the new Graduates of AUT University was Powerful and Inspirational.

In fact, this speech must be heard carefully by everyone who is looking to succeed in any aspect of Life.


 

Why do I think it’s important?

Because it is The First Time I actually hear someone, from this era, a professor from A University giving a message like this. His message is not about go finding a job,  it is mostly about Finding Yourself.

I remember that on my last year of University I asked myself those questions too:
“Ok Ameli…

What is next?
What are you going to do? 
Who will you become? 
What is the world really about?….what if you fail?”
~ Derek Handley

I Knew I was a Medical Doctor and hey!, the obvious path is start working –which I did-, carry on studying –which I did-, start getting ready for my medical specialty –which I did-. So my questions were almost  answered….. BUT

WHAT after that???

Carry on in the same cycle, working working working…
Even when it wasn’t a corporate ladder, there was still a ladder to go up!.
I already had no time left to spend it with my mother.
And despite the fact that I love my career and helping other people… something didn’t feel right.
I didn’t want to be, 10 years later, a 30+ woman, having no time to have my family,
or even worse, having no time to share with my children to come.
I didn’t want to be 45, working and being stuck at A,B,C different hospitals at the same time for the sake of… 
What? A Living??

I mean, seriously… A Living?
Being a Doctor is all about the passion for helping others and 

knowing how You can improve lives, safe people, make them better,
but…. HOW could I make other people’s life better if mine wasn’t?
Honestly, and I am speaking from my heart here because this is 
something that has had always bugged me.

How could I tell my patients to eat well, sleep X amount of hours
exercise (ok, most of doctors don’t really value the importance of these factors).
if I wasn’t sleeping well (only 3-5 hrs a day),
wasn’t eating properly (no breakfast most of the time and a snack here and there)

What kind of Authority did I HAVE to take care of my patients health,
if I couldn’t take care of my own health? I felt like such a hipocrite!

Medicine is about caring, loving, and helping my patients heal
to me medicine is about teaching them how to improve their health themselves,
all by balancing their physical body, their minds, their souls, their social environment.

Medicine is A LOT MORE than curing diseases with drugs or surgeries.
Medicine is about PREVENTING, Healing and understanding the Human Being, THE PERSON.

This is Why I AM a Doctor, but not a conventional Doctor.
I was preparing to do Plastic Surgery, and it took me a while to understand things properly,
My mother had to pass away and I had to hit rock bottom to realize that THAT
wasn’t really the way I wanted to Spend the Rest of My Life.

When I decided to change my career, 
99% of the people around me couldn’t understand it.
They all thought I was crazy,
my father and I stop talking for more than 6 months

he was mean and horrible to me just because
I wasn’t doing things HIS way or like the Status Quo
He said: “Why would you leave to rediscover the wheel
if I have done that already?”
And maybe when I become a parent I would understand,
but I don’t like THAT wheel, I don’t believe in having money
for the sole purpose of creating more and more
and enjoying it without measure and selfishly.

I was new in a foreign country and I had nobody to lean on,
that was My Decision, I took the risk and even I was scared,
I was ready to face my biggest fears and become the woman I am becoming today.

There was only a hand full of people who respected my decision and 
wished me the best and One person who was next to me and
gave me the support I was needing. That was all I needed.

But most important, after being A Doctor, I am Myself.
and I am in this world to make a difference,
to help and inspire other people,
to make them understand that no matter what the status quo says
You CAN LIVE a FULFILLING LIFE and WORK on the things that you ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT.
actually, YOU HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO YOURSELF TO LIVE A FULFILLING LIFE.

This video is really important to me because,
Being Successful is not about how far you make it
in the corpoate ladder -or whatever concept applies to Your profession/work-
or, having material things for the sake of accumulating and enjoying them selfishly
that is my friend -as Derek Handley would say- Common Success.


The REAL SUCCESS is About
BEING SIGNIFICANT,
about the Difference YOU can make
in the world, 
in the life of others,
in future generations.


The Real Success is about building a legacy

that knows how to pay it forward 
creating a sustainable future,
educating children in need
and allowing the rest of the world to
access that knowledge.


The power to be successful

does not reside in a
degree or a tittle.

But instead is an equation
which variables are:
Believing in Yourself,

Pursuing your passions
and working on them,
having the right motivation,
persistence, determination, 

the right Intellectual knowledge
to pursue that Objective.

 Using it to give back, help others
shaping a better future for all of Us.

I will leave you now with some of my favourite quotes from Derek Handley in his fantastic speech.

“If the universe would came and sat down with me one day and said:

You have been chosen to re-live all the years since you graduated but the only choice you have in that decision is whether you commit to keeping all your failures or all  your successes and you can’t keep both. Which would you choose?

With the wisdom of now vs. the wondering of when. I’d take my failures every single time. Because the return on what you learn from your failures is unmeasurably beyond the return on what you learn about yourself from your success.”

~Derek Handley

QUESTIONS ARE OUR MOST POWERFUL TOOLS, THE SPARK PLUGS OF THE MIND.
Once asked, they can’t be unasked.
Once heard we can’t unheard them
Once thought they can’t be un-thought.

~Derek Handley

Common success: A job that you can live with that affords you to do the things you really love instead of a job that you love that you couldn’t live without.

Common success: working your way up, step-by-step, of the ladder of a blue chip name that you can easily explain, instead of climbing the jungle-gym of unheard adventures leading to the Unknown.

Common success is about many material things -newer clothes, nicer cars, better holidays and a bigger house-, instead of how simply you can live or how much less you can get by on and still live richly

Common success is wealth and a great salary and the more of it and the longer you can earn it for yourself the better, before perhaps you waiting much later in life until when you have made it before deciding to give back.

Instead of giving  your time talent and treasure to those lesser off as you go. Aware that giving back implies that you took when it might be better to focus on taking less in the first place.

~Derek Handley

Life isn’t about being easy and if it’s easy  you’re definitely not doing it right.

~Derek Handley

Life is too powerful to pursue common success when you know that significance is possible.

~Derek Handley

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”

~Nelson Mandela

“You will get everything you want in life, if you just help other people get what they want.”

~Zig Ziglar

 

Today,  I am glad for the the decision I made,
I am grateful for the things I have been through,
for the people around me and for what I am learning.

I am happy there is people pursuing their dreams and
working on what they are passionate about.
I am happy I belong to that group of people.
I am happy that we are all making a difference in the world.

Do YOU want to make a difference in the World too?
Do YOU want to be significant? 

First, you need to be Significant to Yourself, in your Life
and you can start by following the same path I did
I might not be at the top of my mountain just yet,
but I am working consistently on getting there
and guess what?, you can come join me
and all of the people I work with 🙂

Have a fantastic day,
