New Secret Technique I've Been Using

47 replies
Hey WF'ers

I am just about to finish my 4th year as a full time business owner after a lifetime of "job" mentality and working in the corporate world. I have had some huge failures and a number of pretty sweet successes along the way... and of course TONS of goals that I am still building towards.

The one aspect that has kept me going is my commitment to personal growth and staying motivated. 3-4 days a week I get up around 5am to study personal development ideas and this is really my source of energy and enthusiasm for my business.

Here is a technique that has been working wonders for my motivation:

    I'm definitely going to look into this, thank you for posting. I've been finding it a challenge to stay in the 'feeling' of things I'd like to manifest and am looking for something different to try.

    Thanks for the inspirational post. I have actually looked at the book mentioned, I haven't read it fully just glanced through, maybe I should have a deeper read just to check it out again.

    I was never big into this kind of stuff. I also have difficulty 'visualising' but I'll be checking out the book you mentioned.

    Hope they have it on Kindle

    Lol, yeah. I have such a hard time sometimes keeping myself focused. I can stay motivated but my natural tendency is to get distracted easily if I’m not careful. I agree with you that mindset & visualizing goals makes a big deal.

    Other things that keep me motivated are reading posts where other like-minded people put themselves out there as a way to be accountable, such as online journals. I love reading about other peoples little successes. I also find that when I share my successes with friends/family it also keeps me motivated as well as making me feel more accountable, like I’ve got to continue & meet even more milestones.

    Great Video! Thank you for sharing! You have pointed out so many useful tips. People get motivated by different stimulus. Some are visual, some are mental warriors, and others do it by sense of feel. It's wonderful that you found a method that works for you.

    @Newview - You are right. So many different styles of learning. My goal when I became an entrepreneur was to help motivate and inspire people through personal development and my work in IM has allowed me to cross combine the 2. So I am glad to hear you enjoyed this

        Here's a link I found on a google search:

        Psycho-Cybernetics - Zero Resistance Living

        I recommend the new version with Dan Kennedy. It has a lot of more current examples instead of the original examples which were cited in the 1950's.

        All the lessons are still as powerful though

    Please post back if you read Psycho Cybernetics. I am so convinced that this is BY FAR the best book on personal performance/development.

      O.K. I will get the book you recommend because I keep hearing about it from so many different sources. Must be fate. I will do the writing down of goals you suggest, and that will be like when ever I get out of bed. 5a.m. is like for going fishing or coming back home from a killer night out.

    Great stuff, Justin. Really inspiring. For me, the greatest energy booster and, basically, work goer is to remind myself every time before I start working on something why I'm in IM in the first place, and a I have a few very GOOD reasons as to why I've been doing this for a few year now and why I feel I'll be doing this for a very long time from now on too. Just a quick mental memo of all these things gives me a tremendous energy boost every time and helps me get the job done in the end.

    Awesome! The whole "job" mentality is forced upon us at an early age as soon as we go to school we face 8 hours of mind numbing isolated boredom every day. Gets us in shape 15 years later for the social timetable - go to work, collapse on the sofa, go to work...

    The world and all time belongs to the person who dares to ask "Why should this be?" and acts upon their own initiative to move mountains and create a new inner reality for themselves.

    Thanks for your inspiring video. I can already imagine how it will help me stay focused ;]
    I actually remember I've thought about what I could have quite a few times, I just didn't realize it could help me somehow.
    I'll definitely look into purchasing that book you mentioned, I'm really passionate about Psychology and self development lately.

      I did the same thing. I heard so many other books talking about Psycho Cybernetics.. but then never actually bothered to read it.

      Once I finally did it was game changing. Hope you get a chance to take a look.


      To everyone else... thanks for the feedback. I'm really glad you enjoyed the video

    I first read Psycho Cybernetics in the early 1980's; and, now that I'm reminded of how good it is, I'll have to dig it out and re-read it. It's definitely a personal growth classic!

    BTW... Here's a bit of an 'old fashioned' idea, but I would think that any well-stocked public library carries the book!
