There's a huge connection between Passion and Motivation, and this is crucual to understand!

Getting a Vision and Knowing What To Do With It
8 Lectures 38:49

If you don't have a tangiable vision for your life, this can keep you going around and around in circles for years.

How a man (or woman) without vision will perish!
07:02

In this video, I share openly and honestly about how for years, I wen't around and around in circles, living aimlessly when I didn't have a vision for my life.

How I perished as a man without vision
06:31

"A Man without vision will perish." King Solomon (1500BC)

Regardless of circumstance, Victory is always possible for the person who relentlessly refuses to give up in the pursuits of their vision.

Millennia ago, Julius Caesar made it one of his life goals to capture the British and rule the British Empire. He sailed to the British Isles, strategically unloaded his troops, weapons and supplies, then commanded his officers to burn the ships.

Through this one, drastic action, Caesar eliminated the option of retreat,

He called all of his men together and said, “Now, we either win or perish. We have no other choice.”

With this one single order, he guaranteed the success of his campaign. He knew that people, who have no other choice than to win, always win.

This year, and for years to come, if you find yourself in a situation where victory seems highly unlikely, you might be able to further your cause by developing an alternate course of action.

If, your reasons for pursuing your goals are genuine, there is no reason why you wouldn't burn your ships also to make the retreat an unfulfillable option.

If your end objective won’t yield to a full frontal assault, try a more discreet approach as there are few problems in life (if any) that are impossible to solve without committed determination.

Even life's greatest obstacles and challenges will eventually give way to a determined, motivated person who has a vision and plan that are flexible enough to endure the changing conditions of life.

Learning from the 'stubbornness' of Caesar
01:08

A valuable lesson we can learn from Julius Caesar.

Preview 04:41

A valuable lesson we can learn from the former U.S President, Mr Bill Clinton.

A Lesson from Mr Bill Clinton
03:40

The wilderness is the 'baron land' that finds itself inbetween where we currently are in life, and where it is we want to be.

Introducing The Wilderness - we've all been there!
02:59

In this video I discuss the Ridley Scott movie, Exodus: Of Gods and Kings.

There is a powerful life principle we can learn from the entire nation of Israel as they progressed to break free from slavery in Egypt.

Understanding The Wilderness
08:58

In this video I discuss and demonstrate how your feelings come as a direct result of what it is that you focus upon.

Focus = Feelings (What you focus on you feel!)

Unleashing the Power of 'Why'
7 Lectures 22:53

This section of the course considers a naturally occurring pattern, a way of thinking, and a way of living that allows some people to achieve phenomenal things with their lives.

Some people in the world grow to become hugely influential leaders.

Effective leaders are simply those who hold a position of influence as a direct result of the results they have already achieved in life.

True leaders will always lead an exemplary life (they lead by example in their chosen field of expertise).

Although many of today's 'success' books might lead you to believe that leadership reserves itself for those who commit their lives to the corporate world, politics or religion.

There is a difference between appointed leaders who do so for a salary, and those who naturally lead us towards progress in our thinking, our careers, and the extent of our most important life areas. Natural leaders are influencers.

The greatest achievers in the world will always start with their end goal in mind. These people are totally clear about the final result that they want, and the changes that they want to make.

As you gain clarity in your reason for wanting to achieve a specific goal, you develop the ability for making better-informed decisions that will enable you to reach your final destination faster.

In life, it doesn't matter what you do, it matters why you do it.

Unleashing the Power of Why (Introduction)
01:02

Asking yourself 'WHY' you want to do the things that you want to do in life is possibly one of the greatest questions you could ever ask in life.

The Greatest Question you could ever ask yourself
03:49

In this short video I explain what motivates me .... and the reason WHY I do the things that I do with my life.

WHY I do the things that I do ...
05:25

In this video I explain a common reason why many people DON'T do the things they want to do in life.

WHY people DON'T do the things they want to do ...
04:12

YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR COMING INTO THE WORLD.

You may have little or nothing to do with leaving it.

But you have everything to do with the decisions that you make between where you started, and where you end.

You can be the master of your future today by taking full ownership of your thoughts and using them to guide your own life more effectively. As you do this, you'll begin spending less time concerning yourself with the lives of others.

Notice the connection I make here between mastering yourself and not attempting to master others. A major reason for the vast numbers of people's daily unhappiness is their tendency to meddle in the lives of others.

The time you waste worrying about other what other people think, what they're doing and what results they're getting will radically reduce the amount of time you can invest into trying to perfect your own.

Nobody else can do the job of motivating you, nor should you even allow anyone else to try. Your mind will be your master unless you learn how to master your mind.

All other mammals on earth are governed throughout their lives by a fixed pattern of instinct from which they cannot escape.

YOU are bound only by the patterns of thinking that you set up in your own mind.

YOU are limited by nothing else.

Your Mind is Your Master
01:02

Having a vision for your life is great, but unless you're committed to making ongoing improvements and changes, you'll stand to potentially be 'left behind'!

How a Strong enough reason will let you achieve Anything
04:37

In this video I give a brief insight into a part of our brain called the reticular activating system, which has been designed to help us recongise oportunities that'll allow us to get closer to our goals and visions.

The Progress Principles: Upping 'The Game' and Raising Your Standards
12 Lectures 54:12

Who we believe that we are is the governing belief that influences our every thought, feeling, action and life outcome.

Who you believe you are will determine what you do
06:14

We can become our very own worst enemies if unaware of the potential emotional blocks that can often prevent many of us from reaching our life goals.

Overcoming Emotional Blocks
04:19

If life is a game, you might as well be playing to win!

Playing the 'Inner Game' to Win!
03:14

There's a common trap that even the most successful people in the world fall into sometimes ... and it's called comparison - as we compare ourselves to others (and often beat ourselves up due to the differences)!

Preview 05:20

It will always be wiser to imitate a successful man than to envy him.

Out of all the negative emotions we can experience in life, envy is possibly the most insidious.

Envy is especially sinister because it destroys you from the inside by replacing all that is positive, creative and productive with destructive feelings of frustration, anger, jealousy, and even despair.

Upon reaching the stage of maturity where we're genuinely able to congratulate others on their successes, not only do we give credit to those who deserve it, but we also gain credit unto ourselves.

Upon learning to overcome any envy you might have over others, begin to determine what specific actions the other person took to achieve the degree success they've achieved.

Meanwhile, you will have strengthened both your character and your relationships by appreciating the achievements of others.

The Imitation Game
00:38

Dependant on the results you are currently experiencing in life, assessing your standards and working towards improving them can have a highly influential affect on the degree of our personal success in life.

Assessing your current standards
06:36

Prior to considering investing our time in attempting to achieve great things, it can be a great investment of our time to commit towards becoming better versions of ourselfs.

Becoming Excellent (Before Doing Excellent)
05:48

By consisently raising your standards, you are continuously setting yourself new benchmarks for hightened rates of personal success.

The Importance of Consistently Raising your Standards
06:25

In this video, I discuss how it possible to still be making progress in life, even when it may seem like we have failed!

How to Succeed (Whilst Failing Miserably)
04:29

In public, people are often rewarded for the disciplines that they practice in private for many years.

Public reward comes from years worth of 'practice in private'
05:06

Many people see failure as a 'full stop'.

What would it mean if failure was merely a 'coma'?

The Opportunity to be found in failure
03:30

In this video, I briefly illustrate what it looks like to be making progress in life (in any of our life areas).

So, what does progress look like anyway?

7 Steps for Making Progress (in any area of your life)
9 Lectures 40:26

The following 7 Steps, are the exact steps that I took to begin moving forward when my entire life collapsed in 1997. These same 7 steps continue to give me a framework, for basing my desicions upon today as I continue to make progress through the extent of my various life areas.

Introducing 'The 7 Steps'

STEP 4: Take Stock, Evaluate your Circumstances, and do WHATEVER IT TAKES, to move from where you are, to where you want to be.

Step 4: Take Stock (and evaluate your situation)
02:51

If we really want to begin making real progress in any area of our life, we must first identify and ditch the 'junk' that is holding us back.

Step 5: Ditch the Junk
05:52

If making a positive difference in the world is something that we may be interested in at some point in life, this begins as we consider ways in which we can contribute.

Step 6: Contribute (give something back)
