7 Steps–Maximum Success

7 Steps to Achieve Maximum Success–Part 1–Creating Specific Goals and Right Beliefs, by John Assaraf.

I find John Assaraf’s work fascinating.  He’s researched and learned from some of the greatest minds in the world about the brain and how it works.

This is an interesting video about goal achieving.  Pay attention to the words he uses as they’re powerful.

I’ve watched and paid attention to John Assaraf’s work for about six years or more and find it more and more interesting.  Of course in the field of brain research, there are new discoveries about it all every year.

What are  your thoughts on all of this?

Failure Or Success

Do you have a fear of failure or a fear of success?  O.K.  Some of you may be saying, ‘Neither’, since you may not have acknowledged these fears in your life.

View this video with John Assaraf and let us know what your thoughts are.

Even though John Assaraf is way too young to fit the ‘sixty something’ age group, he’s got great information for everyone.  What do you think of his concepts?

Is There Power In Goal Setting?

One of my favorites, John Assaraf, here in this video talking about the power of goal setting and how it works.

Take a few minutes to view this and see if it resonates with you.

Are you a goal setter?  What goals have you set?  What has happened as a result?  Feel free to share with us.  We’d really enjoy hearing from you about it.

Your Present Beliefs

One of my favorite authors is John Assaraf.  I’ve read his books and am on his email list.  For me, what he says resonates with my beliefs.

On that note, I recently picked up his book that we got a few years ago, The Answer, and am rereading the section on the Neural Reconditioning Process.  He asks this question:  ‘How do you know what your beliefs are?’.

Good question, since, as he writes, ‘We swim in them all the time, so much so that they are typically invisible to us’.

So how do you know what you believe?  Actually there is a simple answer.  Just look at your life.  What do you see?  Whatever you find, there’s evidence of your beliefs.  Your current life–relationships, health, lifestyle, where you work, where you play, what you do every day–is an accurate reading of the picture you’ve been holding in your nonconscious brain.

Are you thinking there is never enough… time?  Never enough… money?  Guess what belief you are holding?  And perhaps you are thinking, ‘Well, not now, but there will be soon, eventually, someday’.  Unfortunately, to your nonconscious, there is no past and future, only the present moment, right now!

According to Assaraf, the first step is to accept the fact that you are in the driver’s seat:  Your life is your creation, and the principal tool you have used to create it is your beliefs.

If you want to change things, then decide what beliefs you want to have.

What do you believe about this work?  Do you agree?  Have you found some truth here that you can relate with?  Personally, I can.  I believe that this information is right on.  I can see how it has worked in my life.  So, for me… lots of room for correcting some of my beliefs and something he doesn’t mention here, but perhaps obvious… self-talk!

Let me know what you think.  Would really like to know.

The Power of Your Thoughts

Recently I read an email article from John Assaraf, one of my favorite mentors about life.  He started out the article with a quote from Albert Einstein:  “Imagination is everything.  it is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

John Assaraf is all about the concepts of quantum physics and how our brain works to create what we have.  Fascinating that he starts his article with this quote from Einstein.  Many well-known people, expert in various fields, have for many years proclaimed that our thoughts create our reality.

What Assaraf mentions in this article is that the challenge is that most of us focus on what we don’t want and therefore keep it alive and then wonder why it keeps showing up over and over again.

He cautions us to think and speak about what we do want, in every facet of our lives, including our business.  ‘Your thoughts not only matter, they create matter’.

He ends the article with a statement we’ve all heard and probably used at one time or other:  ‘I’ll believe it when I see it!’  His contention is that the reality is that:  ‘You’ll see it when you believe it!’

What are your beliefs about the power of our thoughts?  What have you experienced in your life?

Are You A Life-Long Learner?

The first time I heard the phrase, life-long learner, was when my (now) husband used it a number of years ago to describe himself.  Ah! So that’s what it is called.  I believe this is what I am.  I’ve always loved reading books that can help me learn something relevant to my life.

Years ago, I read a lot of self-help books.  Today the term that seems to fit better is personal development.  I believe I’ve become a better person due to some of the books I’ve read.  There are so many authors that have been my mentors, although they don’t know it:  Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hanson, Napoleon Hill, Bob Proctor, Jim Rohn, Paul J. Meyer, Jeff Olson, Ken Blanchard, John Assaraf, and lots more.  Some of these people have written more from a business perspective, although to me it’s all good.

In the fall 2009, I learned about Gary Vaynerchuk and Crush It!  He wrote that book for me.  At least it felt that way.  It’s all about following your passion and creating a business from it.  Outstanding!

Recently I’ve been reading Seth Godin.  His daily blog is great, and his books just speak to me.  The most recent book, Linchpin, tells us to be indispensible, not ordinary.  Phenominal reading.  At least for me right now, since I believe that just the right book will always present itself to me when I need it most.

In the past few months, I’ve discovered Chip Heath and Dan Heath, brothers who wrote Made to Stick (How to get your ideas to stick in someone’s mind) a couple of years ago, and recently have come out with Switch, (How to change when change is hard).  Great insight about change and how to get people to do it.

Exciting to me to start a new book and see how it unfolds and what I can learn from it.

What do you read?  How do you continue your learning process?
