a few months ago i went to one of t. harv eker’s millionaire mind intensive workshops. i didn’t buy any of their courses (i guess becoming a millionaire isn’t high on my list) but got quite a bit out of it otherwise. if you get a chance to go to one of those workshops for free, i highly recommend them. here are my notes – i offer them to you because i’m still not over this silly cold and my brain still doesn’t co-operate enough for a full-blown, original blog post.
let me know what you think of these notes – any of them useful?
(oh, and i lied. they’re not 11 things but 27. i just wanted to start a title with “11 things i learned”)
- dream big; you’ll never be bigger than your dreams
- what’s your money blueprint? (what’s your blueprint for anything?)
- look at the results – that’ll tell you. once you know your blueprint, you can change it.
- failure often comes from lack of clarity
- clarity = power; power = ability to do and act
- no clarity like playing basketball without a hoop
- getting by is harder than getting rich. also, getting by sucks
- simple works, complicated is interesting
- we are programmed to be worker bees
- most people start doing something new out of irritation. their models tend to be the people who irritated them (e.g. “i’m not going to do what he did!”, “if she can do it, i can do it, too”)
- most people run a business that creates struggle. but it should create wealth.
- the opportunity is pure, until you come along.
- if fear, anger and resentment are at the (tree) root of whatever i do, event when the results are ok, i’ll have a hard time changing what’s above ground, and my fruits will never be quite what i want
- destructive words: “i know that” – they close you off
- pride and ego: the most expensive things you own
- for many people, success is counterintuitive
- fix the habit not the problem
- if you want a lot of anything, put in energy
- in times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists. (eric hoffer)
- don’t work hard at something, work hard at yourself
- if you show you can handle what you have, you’ll get more
- focus on investments (of time, energy, money), don’t focus on expenditures
- there are 4 realms: mental, emotional, spiritual, physical. the first three are the roots. the physical is the fruit. if you want better fruit, work on the remaining 75%.
- if you have results you probably won’t spend that much time looking for reasons
- emotion is like breath – it needs to go in and out
- we fear the letting go of emotions but we need it more than anything
- who’s choosing the action? you or the feeling?
