How To Find Motivation In 10 Minutes
5 Lectures 12:54

For many of us finding the right motivation to achieve our goals, and by right motivation I mean the one that will push you off of your mental couch, is one of the most difficult things to do.

You may not like the position you are in (you may even hate it), but you don’t feel motivated enough to change it.

You know you weigh too much, you want to live healthier, but somehow you just can’t resist that box of chocolates.

You are fed up or disheartened by the nasty habits of your loved ones - you’ve tried everything, but nothing seems to work.

It can be a really tough situation, from which I think the toughest is the one where you want to change your life, but you don’t find enough reasons or the ones you find are not meaningful enough.

If that’s the case most probably you haven’t been looking in the right place: you haven’t been asking yourself the right questions.

Preview 02:37

If you were taking part in any kind of motivation program in the past or you were talking to someone about your motivation and you gave your answer, you probably heard: Why not higher? Don’t you want to achieve more? Why so low?

What happens here is that when you are asked Why not higher?, you start to give reasons why not higher and you are effectively being demotivated or you are demotivating yourself.

This happens, because our brain is wired to look for answers and when asked about something, it will come up with answers which are more or less true, but truth here doesn’t have much of a meaning. What counts is that it found a reason for not doing something and it reduces the motivation significantly.

Time For The Second Question

The positive outcomes that you will come up with may be in some way similar to the reasons why you want the change to happen and that’s ok. Just remember that when specifying the outcomes try to get into a mindset like if the change has already happened.

Let your imagination help you

These are the 6 steps to motivate yourself, or someone else in just 10 minutes, to achieve any goal. This method is really powerful and can allow you to make any changes you desire in your life.

10 Embarrassing Habits Holding You Back From Success
11 Lectures 20:22

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 10 on our list is Watching TV Every Day.

But I think that we should update it and add to it spending way too much time peeking at peoples’ lives on Facebook or peeking at kittens’ lives on Youtube.

This one, although seems harmless, can have a devastating effect on your entire day. If turning on the news on TV or reading news on your smartphone is the first thing you do in the morning, you are feeding your brain with negative information from the moment you wake up.

Similarly, if you are closing the day with the same routine, I mean you watch TV or browse Facebook, Twitter or Instagram before bedtime, you are making it harder for you to go to sleep.

Embarrassing Habit No 10

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 9 on our list is Criticizing Other People.

This one is a real nasty one. Criticizing other people has a really negative effect on… you and let me explain why.

Criticizing will make people avoid you: no one wants to be around someone who keeps searching for negative things to say about people. If someone knows that you keep criticizing others, he will inevitably think something like: I wonder what he says about me, when I am not around.

Secondly, if you keep talking bad things about other people soon it’s going to be the only thing you will notice about them. Remember that what you focus on grows, so if you focus on bad things in people those things will grow. They will become such a big part of your life that you will become bitter and a nightmare to be around. 

Embarrassing Habit No 9

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 8 on our list is Talking About Other People.

This one may seem like it’s not that much different from the previous habit, but only if you criticize other people when you talk about them. I mean talking about other people is a more general habit, so to speak.

When you talk about other people you talk about what they did, what they said, what they wore, how they bring their kids up, what new car they bought etc. etc. You are essentially making their lives one of the most important aspects of your own life.

Inevitably, you are comparing your life with their lives, you are judging their lives, you are gossiping. 

Embarrassing Habit No 8

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 7 on our list is Holding A Grudge.

Holding a grudge can be tough to overcome, especially when you feel particularly hurt. I am not talking here about issues that affect your life severely and permanently– these should be consulted with a specialist.

I am talking about the smaller things that we sometimes tend to blow out of proportions.

When we feel hurt we keep thinking about why we got hurt, how much it hurts. We feel angry at the person who hurt us, yet quite often that person didn’t mean to hurt us, didn’t know how we feel about that certain situation and what were our expectations.

The moments when we feel hurt by those small things tend to prey on our own insecurities and it’s a good idea to take a closer look at them to understand them and make them go away.

Preview 02:13

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 6 on our list is Thinking You Know It All.

Let’s assume that you have achieved something you would call a success: you are earning as much as you would like, your business is going well and your situation feels comfortable.

But then one day you notice that your earnings are dropping, business is slowing down and out of the blue there are new competitors on the market who are stealing your clients.

Embarrassing Habit No 6

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 5 on our top list is Having A Sense Of Entitlement.

What would you say to people who claim that they are supposed to be given something, who are entitled to get things?

You’d probably say the they need to work for them and yet so many people have a big sense of entitlement.

They may feel entitled to attention from other people, because they are so special.

They may feel entitled to receive help from the government, doing nothing in return.

They want to receive, receive and receive, because they are entitled to it.

Whereas in real life getting is either followed by, or preceded by giving. In fact if you want to make sure that you will get something, you should be the first one to give something.

Embarrassing Habit No 5

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 4 on our top list is Blaming Others For Your Own Failures.

Have you ever heard people coming up with excuses for their own failures and those excuses were usually other people, who were deliberately sabotaging their success?

That’s the unsuccessful people’s talk.

People who blame others for their own failures never want to find the reasons of it in themselves. They might be scared of what they might find, but surely they don’t want to take responsibility for their own faulty actions..

Embarrassing Habit No 4

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 3 on our top list is The Fear of Change.

Do you know which species will survive?

It’s not the strongest ones. It’s not the smartest ones. It’s the ones who will adapt to change the best.

Well that’s at least according to Darwin, but, especially in business, it couldn’t be closer to truth.

Embarrassing Habit No 3

Unsuccessful people’s embarrassing habit no 2 on our top list is Not Taking Care Of Your Body.

In one interview investing Guru Warren Buffet said that one time his doctor told him that he either needs to exercise or stop eating unhealthy food if he wants to enjoy a better, longer life. Since he couldn’t quit drinking Coca-Cola, eating ice cream etc. he decided that he would exercise to balance his health.

I admit this is a bit eccentric, but it proves a point that the body needs attention. The body needs proper, nutritious food (not everybody has genes like Buffet) and it needs physical exercise.

Embarrassing Habit No 2

Early January is the time of year when people make New Year’s resolutions, but how many people follow through? How many people write those plans down and break them down into separate, small actions to take?

It’s impossible to come up with a number, but the general rule is that every dream that is planned and backed by action turns into a reality.

There is something miraculous about setting goals and writing them down. Even people who just, at the beginning of a year, wrote down their goals and never came back to that list realize, that by the end of the year they realized their goals to a bigger or smaller extent.

Embarrassing Habit No 1
How To Boost Your Productivity and Stop Procrastinating
6 Lectures 17:13

Tiredness is productivity’s and creativity’s worst enemy.

That is why it is vital that you develop a working routine that includes regular breaks.

Most successful people work in intervals: they spend 90 minutes working and 15-30 minutes resting. They always try to make the most out of the morning hours, because this is when the brain is most productive. They also don’t work more than 4,5 hours and leave the tasks that don’t require creativity for the afternoon.

Get More Rest Than You Think You Should

Stress reduces productivity – that’s a fact we already know.

So how can you reduce stress and at the same time boost your creativity and productivity while working?

What you need to think about is how you can make you working environment closer to nature.

As the designer of the Central Park in New York once said the occasional contemplation of natural scenes…is favorable to the health and vigor of men

What’s important in terms of increasing productivity is that nature has a remarkable ability to restore attention. This ability has been even given a technical term as an “attention restoration theory” or A.R.T. for short.

The Power of Natural Vibrations

Our brains are designed to focus on one thing at a time, and bombarding them with information only slows them down.

In fact human brain uses more energy to switch from one task to another than it uses on working on just one task.

Let’s take a look at what science says about the real costs of multitasking.

Preview 04:05

If you were ever favoring more enjoyable or simpler tasks to the less enjoyable and more difficult ones, you were procrastinating. And maybe you were beating yourself over it, thinking: I can never get anything important done on time.

Well, according to science, it’s not your fault – it’s simply how the human brain works. Procrastination is actually a game your brain is playing with you. 

How to stop procrastinating once for all

Psychology has some great tips when you want to be more productive or can’t stop procrastinating. Let's sum them up.

3 Practical Ways To Boost Your Creativity Now!
6 Lectures 14:35

Many people think that they can’t be creative: they believe that creativity is not accessible to regular people like you or me – that it is given only to painters, poets, architects or designers. But the truth is that anyone can be creative. 

Basically, if you have a brain, you can become a creativity superstar.

Let’s take a look at what creativity actually is, how it works and where does it come from.

Preview 02:45

Before we move on to the techniques that will allow you to become a creativity ninja, there is one extremely important thing you need to be aware of: in order for your creative side to give you ideas or solutions, you need to tell it what the problem really is and what sort of answers you are looking for.

The most efficient way to do it is the technique which I call the “20-ideas list”: what you do is you get a piece of paper (and this is important, don’t do it on a computer, grab a piece of paper and a pen or pencil) and you write down the problem that you want to solve

20-ideas list technique

The best way to let your right brain speak louder is to make the left brain speak more quietly. That means that all you need to do is to perform some actions that do not require analytical thinking.

So what are those activities?

How To Turn Your Brain Into A Creativity Device

There’s been a lot of hype about mindfulness and mediation lately and rightfully so. Mindfulness is a way of appeasing your thoughts and preventing yourself from getting lost in worries, stress and exhaustion.

Mindfulness and meditation are independent subjects that need special attention so for the purposes of this class we’ll take a look only at those aspects of them that can help you improve your creativity.

How To Get Rid of The Destructive Mindsets That Steal Your Success
10 Lectures 23:09

Every now and then I hear people saying that they think they are too old to change something about their lives. Or that they are too old to try something, even if it has been their dream for a long time or something they really enjoy doing and they occasionally do it, but they can’t make it the center of their lives.

Thinking you are too old to change things.

Comparing your situation with the situation of other people can be dangerous for various reasons. But the most important of them is not understanding the background of those situations. I mean every life path is different, every life path has its own, unique story.

If you are comparing your achievements with the achievements of others you might also be missing the time-frame in which those achievements were made. You might be comparing your situation with a situation of someone who started earlier than you, who has a completely different background. For instance if you are comparing yourself to someone like Richard Branson, you may easily get disheartened. 

Comparing your situation to the situation of other people

Trying to achieve perfection in everything you do

Many people get caught in the mindset trap that forces them to keep thinking about the past or waiting for the future. They focus on what has already happened, mostly on the bad things. And they wait for the future, hoping it will bring solutions to their problems.

They keep reminiscing missed opportunities. They keep regretting that they didn’t take the chance. They debate with themselves often starting each sentence with If only…

They wait for some circumstances in the future that will somehow solve their problems, even though they do nothing for those circumstances to happen.

The biggest problem with that is that both the past and the future are beyond our control: we cannot alter the past and we cannot foresee the future. The best thing we can do is to focus on the present.

Living in the past and waiting for the future

If your actions depend on external circumstances, you are most likely caught in one of these destructive mindsets:

  1. You are either waiting for the situation to change. In other words you keep waiting for the right time.
  2. Or you are waiting for someone to decide for you.

Both of these kinds of mindsets are paralyzing and are stealing your most valuable resource: your time. 

Your actions depend on external circumstances

Have you met people who keep complaining or yelling at the TV when they are watching the news? I bet you got friends who drag you into conversations about things neither they, nor you have any control over, like the weather.

Those people focus on the things that lie beyond their influence, in other words: they can do nothing about them. They waste a lot of time and energy to express negative feelings about the things they have no power over. For instance they keep going back to their past choices, which they can’t undo or change their consequences.

Focusing on what you cannot change

This one might come as obvious and yet so many people indulge in concentrating their thoughts on the bad aspects of events. Moreover, quite often they keep thinking only about the bad potential aspects of things that merely might happen.

This creates an illusion of a high quantity of bad aspects of life and life events. Psychology knows a phenomenon called a Baader-Meinhoff effect or the illusion of frequency. It says that the more you think of something, the more you see it wherever you go.

Remember when you wanted to buy a certain car? You were thinking about it all the time and you noticed that somehow there’s a lot more of this specific car make on the streets. That’s the illusion of frequency.

Looking at the bad, big picture

These are the 7 mindsets that try to keep you away from success and happiness. To sum things up, let’s briefly revise our list.

5 Toxic Money Mindsets That Steal Your Financial Success
7 Lectures 15:38
The origins of the money mindsets

One of the most dangerous mindsets preventing you from being financially successful is thinking that all the extra money you get is to be spent.

As soon as you get some more money in your pocket, whether it’s a raise, a Christmas bonus or someone gave you back the money he borrowed a long time ago and you’ve already forgotten about it,  the first thing you do with it, or at least your first intention, is to spend it.

It’s this kind of dependency: more money equals more expenditure.

And the logic behind it is this: I have more money – now I can afford what I really want.

Spending all the extra money

You can learn money: you can learn about it, how it works, how to get it, how not to lose it, how to multiply it.

After all, people created a whole science about money called economics and yet so many people believe that money is something magical and for that – unavailable to them.

They spend a lot of time reading reviews of movies when they are deciding what to watch on a Friday evening. They spend a lot of time learning about new things about their hobbies. Basically they are spending a lot of time getting to know the things they find important.

Money is only for the rich people

Money is destroying people all over the world.

It’s a scientifically proven fact that’s been true for centuries.

Or is it?

Many people believe that money is the root of all evil. That money makes people evil and that nothing good can come out as a result of having a lot of money.

Money is the root of all evil

A lot of people think that the rich became wealthy only because they stole their money. While there are some ‘Bernie Madoff’s’ in jail, there is a lot of them not behind bars. Not because they just didn’t get caught, but because they simply earned their money, not stole it.

For many people money is a zero-sum game and if you don’t know what it is, let me just quickly explain it to you. A zero-sum game is a concept of a situation in which each participant's gain or loss is exactly balanced by the losses or gains of the other participants.

In plain words: if I lose, they win and if I win, they lose.

The rich didn’t earn their money, they stole it

One of the things that separates the financially successful people from the financially unsuccessful people is their attitude towards the smallest amounts of money.

While the financially successful people are cautious about spending even the smallest amounts of money, the financially unsuccessful people don’t pay special attention to their smallest expenditures. 

The rich men count every penny, the poor men count every dollar

These are 5 most common mindsets that block your financial success. Let’s quickly go through them one more time
