Instant Happiness. Why Wait?

Richard Wilkins, the UK's Minister For Inspiration tells it like it is. Because it's easier that way. Here's some quotes from the course:

'Most people haven't got a f****** clue who they are.'

'Dying people don't bull****'

'There's more people smiling in a hospice, than the checkout in Tesco'

'I'm not going to give you a list of 10 things to do. Why not?

Because you WON'T DO 'EM!'

So, what this course WILL do is give you is results. Every single one of Richard's tools, on its own would be enough to give you a massive change in your life.

And all of them put together is just dynamite.

Expect to be astounded. :)

You can do the course in an afternoon, and start applying it instantly. You don't need to master anything, or get better at anything.

Be warned:

This course is like walking through a door. A door with only one handle. You can never go back.

Comprehensivist, Education Reformer

Tom Cassidy - Comprehensivist, Education Reformer, Reasonable Polymath, using continuous development frameworks to help people improve all areas of their lives: self-worth, self-belief, goal-achieving, feeling good, achieving sustainable health and deeply fulfilling relationships.

My mantra is: 'Feel Good. Do Stuff.'

Life's not about meditating on the top of a mountain in Nepal, feeling great, achieving enlightenment for yourself...

And it's definitely not about going through life doing things, without having awareness, being busy, achieving a lot but not being mindful of the bigger picture.

It's about both.

Feel good. Do Stuff.

Feel great about yourself, about life, the universe and everything, but do loads of things as well. Have a family, run a business, learn Italian, travel the world, change the world - Do Stuff.

I mean, why not?

I've spent the last 25+ years combining the wisdom of hundreds of years of the study of global philosophies, human effectiveness, modern findings of behavioural science, recent breakthroughs in the understanding of brain physiology and even the results of quantum mechanics into practical, continuous development frameworks for getting things done.

Systems based on practical algorithms of thought and of operation. Algorithms that are easy enough for most people to do just as they are, without having to change any aspect of their life. 'Reasonable Algorithms for Reasonable People.'

In my experience, the most effective continuous development frameworks are those which have duration, cadence and autonomy:

Autonomy - The framework is customisable, adaptable for every participant.

Cadence - The framework has a natural rhythm to it, a cyclic frequency.

Duration - The framework is designed for longitudinal impact and long term growth.

And this framework that I have put together appears to be very robust in its ability to get results, mostly because it requires a very small amount of willpower to make it work. People can stick to it quite effectively.

You still need to do the work. But the willpower you need to get the results is almost certainly the lowest you've ever used for achieving anything in your life, ever.

Please feel free to connect with me however best suits you. I'm always open to exploring ideas either virtually or in person.

All the best

UK Minister For Inspiration

Richard Wilkins is an International Inspirational Speaker/Author with 18 years experience within the field of Human Happiness, Consciousness, Awareness.

Richard lost his fortune but got a life when he discovered ‘There.’

Richard’s unique gift is to be able to compress huge wisdom into a simple format. A format that we can accept, understand and use with immediate, yet lasting results.

In his own words, “We are all Superheroes pretending to be ordinary people, our true purpose is to be who we really are, minus the Script.

Everything else then becomes easy when you become the Superhero.”

…Today Richard is the UK Minister for Inspiration.

Here's some of the stuff he says:

'I'm thick. No, really I am.

And everyone says, - no, you're just saying that - and then they get to know me and they say - you really are thick aren't you?!!!'

'If I say something and I'm trying to be funny, and it's not that funny, do you mind laughing anyway?'

'If you have constructive criticism after this talk, please keep it to yourself!'

'Most people haven't got a f****** clue who they are.'

'Dying people don't bull****'

'There's more people smiling in a hospice, than the checkout in Tesco'

'I'm not going to give you a list of 10 things to do. Why not?

Because you WON'T DO 'EM!'

Anyway, this is what Richard loves - inspiring people, having fun, making them feel good and helping their lives...

It's an amazing system. It works. It works instantly. And it gets stronger over time...

How about that for a system!!!!
