Curriculum

Section 1: Getting Started - Introduction
03:16

In our contemporary world, we encounter difficulties and obstacles on an everyday basis. This is a natural side effect of our existence. Even though we may not always have influence on the birth of these hardships or how they evolve, we have control of how we perceive these drawbacks of life. It is the perception of these seemingly negative situations that allows us to conquer them or let ourselves be beaten by them.

06:00

There are over 12 million millionaires in the world. Do you think that all those people are geniuses, that they simply have "success" in their DNA? Wrong. The truth is that most people underestimate themselves and overestimate others. This is why they never strive for massive goals. Since they never try, they never get what they really want. This situation can lead to life full of regrets, excuses and negativity. However, you should believe in yourself and set massive goals. In this bonus video I'm discussing why you need to do it. Roy will continue with this topic in the later chapters.

03:56

Ask yourself this one, powerful question in order to stop worrying.

Section 2: Seek and Find
07:22

During the years of conducting self-improvement training, I have interacted with an eclectic mix of corporate workers. Many of them at some point of their life began to suffer from the burn-out syndrome or started to experience high levels of stress. They found it difficult to concentrate at work and were quickly exhausted and demotivated. The frequency of headache and migraine episodes increased rapidly, leaving them angry and irritated. The relationship with their spouses was deteriorating due to constant and bitter quarrels.

04:51
He was the junior manager of a small company and had to travel about 150 kilometers every day. He did not concentrate on the unhealthy distance nor did he complain of the amount of time he had to spend in his car. He did not count the amount of money he had to spend on gas every month. He found and clung to all the positive things related to his job.
Section 3: Negativity Programmes You To Fail
06:02

Let me tell you a true story of failure that was materialized due to a negative mindset. A 25 year old student graduated from University with all the intellectual and professional capabilities to walk up the career ladder and grab hold of success. He secured employment and was performing quite well in the company. However, he was never satisfied with what he had achieved and envied those who had set up their own companies and were earning a better income. He envied others because they were doings things that he was proficient at. Unfortunately, he didn't have the courage to initiate changes in his life.

04:41

Over-nurturing is the act of providing excessive parental care to a child. Some parents deprive their children of the possibility to think and do things they should be responsible for at any given stage of their life cycle.

Parents erroneously perceive their overprotectiveness as a natural constituent of a loving person. However, this approach prevents children from understanding and acquiring their full potential.Consequently, over-nurtured children will grow up without possessing interpersonal skills. They lack the ability of feeling responsible and will usually have difficulties to manage their life, their time and financial resources. Making decisions becomes the necessary evil and they will procrastinate as long as possible and even longer. Over-nurturing can be the precursor of negativity in adulthood.

02:52

Parents over-nurture their children for different reasons. They may have experienced pains and hardships when growing up and therefore crave to protect their children from going through the same misery. They lived in poverty, so they feel that it is their parental duty to provide their children an abundance of everything. They may have had to obey strict rules and regulations in their childhood and may consequently refrain from creating such constraints for their own children. They believe that it is like keeping their children in custody.

04:01
If you happen to be the adult child of an overprotective parent, then start your treatment by slackening the line to allow you to swim freely. I am not saying you should terminate contact with your parents. After all, they did not know better at that time. At the beginning, just reduce the number of visits or phone calls. Before asking them for guidance or heeding to their advice, spend some time turning over the problem in your mind. You may make wrong decisions, but gradually you will hone your skills and start to think independently.
Section 4: The Power of Belief
02:55

Most people believe that the secret formula for success is to be hardworking, focused, smart and persistent. These are all important factors that will play a partial role in achieving your goal. However, if disbelief is lingering at the back of your mind, you will crumble in the face of adversity. The fundamental ingredient that leads us to accomplishing our goals is belief in ourselves.

05:24

Two family doctors set up their own private outpatients' clinic a few years ago. It was a huge project and the investment was gigantic. They started from scratch and had to design the interior of the clinic to coincide with the strict rules of the department of sanitation. They went through the torment of settling all formalities and abiding by the rules and regulations of the National Health System. One year after the initiation of the project, they were prepared to start treating patients. Unfortunately, the number of patients was so skimpy that it became extremely difficult to make ends meet. The community had decided to stick to the other two antiquated clinics because they were afraid of the unknown. Countless flyers were distributed. Newspaper and television advertisements were emitted, but to no avail.

Section 5: How To Use The Power of Positive Relationships
06:14

People you deal with have a huge impact on how you feel about yourself and how you perceive the world. Positive people bring that positivity into your life as feeling good is contagious. This results in more energy, confidence, self esteem and motivation. On the other hand, negative people bring you down. They always find reasons for why you can't do something. In this video I will explain how you should manage your relationships in order to become more successful...

05:46

How many hours each week are you spending doing mechanical tasks like washing the dishes driving your car, using public transportation, shopping etc.? The chances are - many. The truth is that you can use those chunks of free time to educate yourself and build a positive mindset. Here's how to do it...

05:36

In this video I will share with you how you can structure your relationships using the Law of 33% in order to increase your level of success.

Section 6: The Art of Visualization
04:04
Visualization is a technique that can be used to get the best out of the mind. If the mind is managed properly, it can become a powerful tool that allows you to improve the quality of your life and lead you towards prosperity. We human beings possess such powerful resources within us, but in most cases are completely unaware of this. Mismanagement of the mind may leave you in a state of mental turmoil. This will subsequently result in malcontent and eventually bring about your downfall. It is crucial that you consider and concentrate on the things you want, instead of the things you do not want.
03:36

It took place five years ago. A friend of mine, who was also a self-improvement trainer yearned to increase his salary. His wife had succumbed to illness and was unable to contribute to the family's income. As he had taught others how to use visualization to fulfill their dreams he decided that he would use the same technique on himself. At least he would have the opportunity to do the things he was telling others to implement.

Section 7: BONUS: Destroying Negative Spirals and Building Positive Momentum - Blueprint
05:22

In the following videos I will show you how you can engineer positive spirals and how you can protect yourself from entering the negative ones. I will also share with you what to do when you are already in a negative spiral and feel like things can't get better.

07:04

One thing that you need to remember is that it's never about the event itself. It is always about your interpretation of that event. This is something crucial to understand. What matters is what you focus on. The glass can be either half full or half empty, remember? There are always various ways of looking at the same situation. This is why it's so important to take control of what you focus on.

How To Prevent Entering the Negative Spiral
04:04

Worry is a mental addiction that can have a detrimental effect on your organism.

03:42

There are three aspects of criticism. Criticism caused by jealousy, destructive criticism and constructive criticism.

02:58

Destructive criticism comes in a package with negativity and inferiority complex.
