Welcome to the first section of this 7 part course. Here we are going to be looking at your goals. We'll be investigating goals for home and work, and how you can best optimise them to ensure you reach them all. You'd be amazed how effective writing down, and visualising your goals can be in actually making them come true. Give it a try!
Many years ago I learnt a visualisation and goal setting technique that absolutely changed my life. It's simple, easy, and shockingly effective. In this lecture I'll teach you how you can use it too, to achieve any goal you can imagine! If you can think it you CAN do it - so get ambitious!
The concept of SMART goals is a long standing and popular one, but personally I think we can do one better. In this lecture I'll explain to you my SPVEM goals and why you should be using them to set your life path.
Now you've started to consider what your goals are we need to refine them. By splitting them into categories and setting time frames you can make sure you've covered all bases for a balanced future, and are maximising your chances of reaching it too.
In this lecture we start to investigate some tips for becoming your best at work. We'll explain why you should be 'T Shaped' and why you should be constantly learning.

Perfection is often held as the ultimate goal, but in reality it could be holding you back in life. If you're someone who won't let something lie until it's "perfect" then you may be causing yourself unnecessary stress and wasting precious time. Set yourself a challenge of pushing back against those perfection urges to start doing things "well enough" and redirecting that time towards reaching your goals.
There are 3 common personality drivers - of which you may have one, or several. It's really important to recognise your drivers as even though they can be a strength and part of who you are, they can also be a severe source of stress and happiness. Identify them, accept them, and then control them.
A fantastic way to get more free time to spend on things that make you happy, and/or get you closer to your goals is to delegate. This is ideal for work situations, but you can also try using it at home too. If you can manage to delegate one hour a week you'll gain a whole free week per year to enjoy as you please!
In this section we are covering everything you need to know about self discipline. If you're going to achieve your goals and be happy you need to start being strict about eliminating things you don't enjoy or people who cause you difficulty, and getting on top of tasks and responsibilities.

Here we'll look at how much money you need to be happy, and whether it should be a priority for you. By comparing several real life case studies we'll unpick where happiness truly comes from.
Choosing your perfect job can be much harder than it sounds. If you can align things you enjoy with things that are in demand and people are paying for - then that's the jackpot! It's well worth taking the time to sit down and figure this out as once you've decided what you want, you CAN make it happen.
The reason we harbour and continue with negative emotions is that we believe they benefit us in some way. This may sound false, but once you really start to analyse why you feel guilty, angry, or jealous you'll soon find the same. By realising that these 'pay offs' are never coming and are not worth it we can begin to eradicate every negative emotion from our lives.
Using these simple three words you can rid yourself of all negative emotions and start to move on with your life. If you can stop living in jealous, regret, guilt, or many others then imagine how quickly you could grow and achieve!

Assertiveness is often confused with aggression but really the two are totally different. Assertiveness is all about believing you have a right to be equal to everyone else - a right to be happy, heard and respected. It's vital you believe this about yourself, and enforce it when others are taking advantage or stopping you achieving your goals. Here's how!
How to be assertive can be quite an illusive and over complicated process but in this lecture you'll learn 4 insanely easy steps to make it come naturally and work flawlessly. Get ready!
When it comes to being assertive, a final option is to negotiate instead. It might be that you can create a win win situation where both parties get what they want but with a compromise achieved. I have a whole course on negotiating, but here is a quick 5 minute crash course to get you started!
In this final section we will be looking at how you can influence others. Of course you could use this for personal manipulation, but it's also a very powerful tool for making other people happy and welcome. It's useful for sales, management, networking, and of course your personal life outside of work too.
Being liked it a hugely important life skill. It may sound trivial or like it belongs in the playground, but if you can use these simple tips to make an instant great impression you'll get more business, connections, friends and stronger relationships.
