Darren Hardy: Find Your Fight + Goals

So, my first podcast (which will be below the first part of this in terms of finding your fight) was uploaded yesterday.  I didn’t have time to attach the blog with it, and I also got a real time text message about a job denying me work and see how I reacted to it.  Great experience. Lol

And into “finding your fight.”

Now, Darren Hardy talked about using friction, anger and hate to press up against something you don’t like.  I strongly disagree, respectfully.  It’s like the people who asked Mother Teresa if she wanted to go to an Anti-_________ rally.  She never went, but when she said, “if you make a pro-peace rally, I’ll go.”

The more you press up against something you dislike or get back at someone, you’ll never feel accomplished and you’ll be bringing more of that.

Gary Vee mentioned that he does things to stick it back in other people’s faces.  Again, people have a way of doing it, but the antagonists, naysayers, and people that want to see you fail will continue dissecting every detail of you to find something else to complain about.  It will be a never-ending whirlwind of critcism you’re redirecting constantly over to yourself because you feel you have to do it to prove someone wrong.

I’m telling you now that they will continue to win.  Just remember, No One Ever Kicks A Dead Dog.

Goals

The compound effect, just like the Law of Attraction, is always working – whether you believe it or not.  You can use it for you, or against you.  Most successful people in the world have quiet time for meditation, other people say that meditation isn’t for them.  It’s all based on preference. However, if you can get to a deeper level of your core, you will find the treasure.  I have a particular friend who works at a bank who says she doesn’t know what she loves.  Well, try new things! “Well, my mother said I can’t.”

Now’s not the time to be rescue 911.  If she doesn’t start now, she’ll look back to now at the age of 70 saying, “I wish I had…..”

Don’t be that person.

Ask yourself: “what goals, dreams and destinations do I desire?”

Honestly, ask yourself that question.  If you’re not making progress in life, and shooting aimlessly, it’s because your goals aren’t clearly defined and you just simply don’t have a definite chief-aim in life.  How can you learn to effectively to set and achieve goals?

Was Australia on my bucket list back in 2009? No.  However, in 2005, it gave me a glimpse of what was to come when I did a convention with a friend involving lots of managers from Australia at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. That wasn’t a clearly defined goal, but rather an insight.

I always wanted to travel to Japan, Singapore, Bali and Maldives…when I put these onto my dreamboard, it happened.  It may not work for you, but it worked for me.

You only see, experience, and get what you look for. If you don’t know what to look for, you certainly won’t get it. By our very nature, we are goal-seeking creatures. Our brain is always trying to align our outer world with what we’re seeing and expecting in our inner world. So, when you instruct your brain to look for the things you want, you will begin to see them. In fact, the object of your desire has probably always existed around you, but your mind and eyes weren’t open to “seeing” it.
In reality, this is how the Law of Attraction really works. It is not the mysterious, esoteric voodoo it sometimes sounds like. It’s far simpler and more practical than that. – Darren Hardy

We are bombarded with visual, audio and physical things everyday.  Have you ever been thinking about that person and later get a phone call from them? How about that car you want? You start seeing the car a heck of a lot more, right? Is it realistic? Perhaps.  Maybe the cars were there all along and you just weren’t paying attention to it.

When you define your goals, you give your brain something new to look into and focus on. This is why our subconscious mind and feeding your mind with what you want one hour before you retire at night is imperative.  If you watch bad news, what shows up in your dreams? If you do work on that project, shop for that house, look for flights to Kazakhstan, and look at YouTube videos of travel in Morocco….your subconscious mind will work on it overnight.

Was Not Going Back Home Suppose To Happen? How The Universe Truly Works

Late October

Told my friend that I had an ominous feeling about going to America.  Without consulting her, I took the matter into my own hands and trusted my gut-feeling, cancelling the trip and throwing our 11 year relationship into disarray.

November 16th-18th

I received an email from a coordinator regarding my removal from a company where I taught.  I was completely confused by the ordeal, and my students were the one that ultimately suffered the most because of personal preferences.

Later realized that the excuses to my removal were controversial.  I began to believe that I was the epicenter of a racial attack, and then the verbal threats from my coordinator began.  It’s hard to see eye-to-eye when one is Anglo and another is African American.

November 18th – The Evening

After hearing such disgusting remarks, I didn’t look at the insults by face-value, but rather by the emergence of something so wonderful and so magnificent that was trying to make way into my life.  I applied for about 50 jobs in over 6 different countries.

Monday, November 20th – WHOA!

Ten jobs in China, one job in Honduras, another job in Costa Rica and others scattered around the planet — begging for my services.  Unsung hero came into my life the morning of Monday, asking me if I was still working at my present job. LOL! Was that a coincidence?  She told me about a very significant project she would like me to do.  Three hours later, I was given another project.  Three hours after that, around 2pm, I received an anonymous text message from someone giving me the biggest project of my life, teaching people from an embassy.

The week of the 27th…

I was offered a job and now the attachment with my present job no longer matters.  If something does arise, and it will, I can leave without any equivocations.  Just a few days later, I looked for high-rise condos in the heart of Bangkok since that is going to be my next point of living (Costa Rica job never contacted me back after emailing initially).

Today

I will be moving into my new condo the 22nd of December — marking the best present I’ve ever received in my life.  I have four new jobs who will want my services very shortly.  I got new projects, viewership, and so many other unbelievable things happening in my life.

Get this, everyone.  This all came from what? Being removed from a company because I’m African American.

Now ask yourself…….”wait, how? Another racial issue that’s about as common as seeing a bird came roaring into your life, and now you have 6 projects, a job offer, and four other suitors? How do you do it, Arsenio?”

Not only that….if I had gone to America this upcoming December, I wouldn’t have been able to move into my new condo, negating a big move to Bangkok which would’ve resulted in losing some of my projects and possibly even a job opportunity.

Breadcrumbs.

Napoleon Hill: End of Failure Lesson – Failure Is Success + Turning Points

Neither temporary defeat nor adversity amounts to failure in the mind of the person who looks upon it as a teacher that will teach some needed lesson.  As a matter of fact, there is a great and lasting lesson in every reverse, and in every defeat; and, usually, it is a lesson that could be learned in no other way than through defeat.

Defeat often talks to use in a “dumb language” that we do not understand.  If this were not true, we would not make the same mistakes over and over again without profiting by the lessons that they might teach us.  if it were not true, we would observe more closely the mistakes which other people make and profit by them.

Napoleon Hill’s First Turning-Point

After finishing business college, I secured a position as a stenographer and book-keeper which I held for five years. I saved my money; and my bank account amounted to several thousand dollars.  My reputation spread rapidly and I found competitive bidders for my services.

Then kindly hand of Fate reached out and gave me a gentle nudge.  My employer lost his fortune and I lost my position. This was my first real defeat; and; even though it came from a result of causes beyond my control, I should have learned a lesson from it; which, of course, I did, but not until many years later.

Second Turning-Point

Next position: Sales Manager for a larger lumber manufacturing factory.  My advancement was rapid, my salary having been increased twice during the first year.

And like a stroke of lightning out of a clear sky, the 1907 panic swept down upon me; and, overnight, it rendered me an enduring service by destroying my business and relieving me of every dollar that I possessed.

Third Turning-Point

It required the 1907 panic, and the defeat that it brought me, to divert and redirect my efforts from the lumber business to the study of law. When I entered law school, it was with firm belief that I would emerge. I attended law school at night and worked as an auto-salesman during the day.

Again, I was beginning to near the end of the rainbow.  Again, I knew I had at last found my niche in the world’s work; that nothing could swerve me form my course.

My banker knew that I was prospering, therefore he loaned me money with which to expand.  A peculiar trait of bankers – a trait which may be more or less developed in the remainder of us also – is that they will loan us money without any hesitation when we are prosperous.

My banker loaned me money until I was hopelessly in his debt, then he took over my business s calmly as if it had belonged to him, which it did!

After putting up the hardest fight of my life, up to that time, I accepted my temporary defeat as failure. 

Fourth Turning-Point

My first position in Chicago was an advertising manager of a large correspondence school.  The first year I earned 5k$!

I was “coming back” by leaps and bounds.  Gradually the rainbow’s end began to circle around me, and I saw, once more, the shining pot of gold almost within my reach.

Self-approval is a dangerous state of mind.

This is a great truth which many people do not learn until the softening hand of time is rested upon their shoulders.

5-7 Turning Points – In The Podcast

And In The End…..

The publication of Hill’s Golden Rule magazine brought me in contact with the thinking class of people all over the country.  It gave me my big chance to be heard.  The message of optimism and good-will among men that is carried become so popular that I was invited to go on a country-wide speaking tour during the early part of 1920.

And the 7th turning-point came like this.  I was watching the hardest downpour of rain come down while sitting in a restaurant in Dallas, Texas.  The water was pouring down over the plate-glass window in two great streams, and playing backward and forward from one of these streams to the other were little streams, making what resembled a great ladder of water.

It flashed into my mind!

This could be a splendid lecture! Seven turning-points.  I can call it the “Magic Ladder to Success.”

On the back of an envelope I outline the fifteen points out of which this lecture was built.  Fifteen points = fifteen lessons.

Failure is success!

Three Keys To Developing Self-Confidence

I was listening to another Gary Vee podcast and he said some things that I needed to talk about in terms of building up confidence.  Are there easy ways to becoming an effective communicator? I made a podcast on ‘How Come Become A Good Conversationalist’.

In addition to the podcast above and the one that will appear down below, here are some ways that you can break out of that slump that society imbedded in you.

Do The Opposite of What Your Culture Does

Wait, wait, wait, don’t not wear clothes and expect wonders to work in your advantage.  Nothing obscenely outrageous that will get you thrown behind bars.  I’m telling everyone right now to look around.  Be aware of how people stand.  For instance, if you go to Japan or Korea, they all stand the same way and acclimate to their environment.  Why? They’re terrified of how others could be looking at them.  They’re afraid of being on another social media video-gone viral for whatever reason.  Most Thai people, after witnessessing what I have the past four years, walk the same way.  They’re terrified of speaking up, out, and putting someone in their place.

I run down the streets howling Macklemore ‘Can’t Hold Us,’ and sure, people stare at me in terror.  But what could they do? What’s the worse that can happen? Absolutely nothing.  Stop worrying about the pundits around you and stop worrying about what you think they might be thinking about you.  Dance.  Sing a little.  Laugh at a video on the bus.  Talk to a friend.  Be your f***ing self because it’s utterly frustrating seeing the conformity of mankind converting to something they’re not; let alone not doing the things they’ve always wanted to do because of “society.”

Supporting Cast

My best friend Carlos — the story I always talk about — was my coming out party.  This was the kid, who I didn’t like back in middle school, who changed me in the first few months of high school.  I was terrified beyond belief.  I didn’t speak to any of my numerous crushes because I had zero confidence.  Over the course of the school year (the 9th grade being the most pivotal of them all), I had my coming out party.  Oh, and it was life-changing because I somewhat made a council table and put some figures who I admired at the time — at that council table.  I took a piece of everyone, and I still continue to do that today.  If there’s something about me, or someone in my close circle who I don’t like….I know exactly what I have to do.

Number 3 in the podcast!

Circle of Concern vs. Circle of Influence: Friendship Woes

It’s been a very turbulent year — people (what I would call friends in the past) coming and going.  Some of this could be unbearable for most, but I built up a fortified wall in front of my feelings, telling myself that all of these so-called “friends” are here to fulfill a purpose.  Remember what I said a long time ago: life-time, life-giving, and purposeful relationships.  People are categorized into these three areas.

Best Friends Turned Enemy

I don’t believe it was so much her getting a boyfriend, but me having a life-changing experience happen on the other end just 3 weeks after.  My life went from almost investing and staying in Thailand long-term, to almost booking a trip to Honduras or Costa Rica after a racially implicit event in my workplace and was expunged from teaching at a company.  Yes, if she was my best friend Andre, we would be able to talk it out, make amends, and just move on with our friendship.  With her there was possible miscommunication, but I also saw danger — danger that could’ve bloomed if I had gone to America.  So, I cancelled the trip, and three weeks later my job was on the line.  My hands were incredulously on my head and I was being criticized by an individual who shouldn’t be criticizing anyone, given the circumstances of him being in Thailand.

Almost one month later, new condo, five job opportunities, six projects and so many other things….now I understand WHY I didn’t go to America.

Purposeful Relationship Turned Chaos

I met someone by the name of Zern who I thought had the same energy as I.  I seriously thought that she was me in a completely different form.  However, after two weeks, a nose-dive happened.  The energy between us changed and then the complaints were ON 100% (barely anything coming from my kisser).  This lead to her going out with a friend to one of the most notorious areas in all of Asia where drunk, poor backpackers go to have sex.  That was THE END. 

The Student That Couldn’t Take It

The last episode comes from an individual who I catapulted into the University of Sydney.  After completion of her Masters Degree, she came back (just recently) to Thailand.  Because I’m going through a very pivotal stage in my life, I need her to help me with translations from English-to-Thai.  Granted, I helped her with grammatical structures the past 1.5 years.  She helped me, and then I asked her for a very important favor.  Before I continue, she is a doctor.  Now, let’s get back into this…..I needed assistance taking some luggage and boxes to my new condo.

CRICKETS

After that message, she was gone!

Moral of these stories…..you’re the only person who can be rescue 911.

Removing A Device From The Bedroom – Two Days of Rest!

Those groggy mornings when my eyes are burning because I was more in a light-sleep than a deep-sleep the night before.  When these mornings happen and I have a full days of teaching ahead, around 1-3pm I find myself inhaling a small glass of black coffee (with no additives) to wake up — and I despise coffee!

I had to figure out what was happening.  I always did meditation into sleep, but anytime I woke up in the middle of the night, I would check my phone.  When this happened, and depending on how long I checked my phone for, the amount of time I stayed awake can range from 10 minutes, to 2 hours.  There’s something about the brain becoming stimulated after reading information.  Most of the information I read would be senseless, too.  There weren’t any important emails to reply to and emergency texts — it was simply me checking the stats of my podcast, blog, and then going on a useless website to see what’s happening in the world.

ENOUGH!

When I would do that (and you’re going to see a lot of ‘when’ clauses in my writing today), the next morning my eyes would have a slight burn.  Not sure why.  I would sleep 8 hours, mind would be fully awake, but eyes would burn marginally.

So, I did an experiment.  The experiment was conducted a long time ago, too, but now I decided to get back into the swing of it.  Because I have a FitBit blaze watch, I now remove my phone from my room and use the blaze watch bedside to see what time it is.

First Night

After getting a 1-2 times to run to the restroom, I never once turned to my working desk to look at my phone.  I realized that sleep was much more important than stats and whatever is on my phone.  I went back to my room, and woke up COMPLETELY around 5:15am.  After that, I went right into a meditation.  This requires using my phone (because the meditation app is guided), but all the notifications were switched off the night before, so NOTHING is on the home screen.  I do my guided meditation (overcoming procrastination – to be specific), and after that, I banged out three podcasts in the morning, started packing for the big move in less than two weeks, and cleaned up literally EVERYTHING.  I checked my messages and saw that it was a relatively slow night; therefore, I set aside the phone and went straight to work.

How perfect was that! Leaving just a watch, a clock, or something bedside for the time and sticking the phone outside works wonders!

Lewis Howes: Material Mask – Part II: Does Money Kill?

After accumulating so many riches over the course of years, Lewis Howes is still one of those people who drive a 1991 Cadillac. He went on to say that Tai Lopez’ viewpoint on buying luxury cars was interesting to him.  Heck, I believe anyone who buys cars over 100k$ USD is doing it to cover up what they’re lacking, if I haven’t said that already.

“Tai described the dangers of money quite well. He said, “I think that if you’re not careful, money is like a pit bull. A pit bull can save your life or it can turn around and kill you.”

If I can recall a story which Tony Robbins spoke about in his book about the richest man in Germany, Adolf Merkel.  This man was a billionaire back in his day, and after suffering a huge gamble and losing about 25% of his networth, he was absolutely finished with life.  His identity was so attached to money to the point he felt powerless, and in the ensuing days he threw himself off the building, ultimately committing suicide.

Anyone who believes money can kill them is right – based on face-value.  However, if you’re one of those people who look at money from an “enabling” standpoint, you’ll never think money “has you.”  Look at me.  Sure, I’ll be moving across town to a gorgeous condo and kick off 2018 with the most successfully sound bank account I’ve ever possessed.  But does that define who I am? Hell no.  Quite frankly, I can really give a damn about how much I make all year next year.  What I wanted most from one particular place was respect; then I was delivered racism and threats…so I got up and left because I knew there were six projects aching for my services.  Am I doing to purely because the money? ABSOLUTELY NOT! It’s the handshake after another.  Having speaking engagements in possibly Morocco and even in Bangkok (Tedx) is what I do it for.  Will I buy an Audi to look cool and contribute to the traffic congested roads in Thailand? Ludicrous!

“I suppose that’s why a lot of guys either love or hate Tai Lopez. Some see him as a hero. They want to drive nice cars. They want to be surrounded by models in their enormous mansions. They want to be able to hang out with celebrities who come over to their house. They want to be—or appear to be—the opposite of the invisible, ashamed, anonymous person they might feel themselves to be. Other guys see him as a fraud or a liar. They are convinced he’s making it all up and that he doesn’t actually have any money. They obsessively produce videos that question whether Tai rents his exotic cars or if his house is really his. If I had to guess why those doubters are so obsessed, it’s because, if Tai’s story is true, then deep down, they don’t think they would be able to do the same things Tai has done. And that kind of self-doubt, especially to a man raised in our current culture, is too crippling not to project outward onto others.”

Excerpt From: Lewis Howes. “The Mask of Masculinity.” iBooks.

There are a number of videos, Twitter accounts, and Facebook accounts depicting Tai Lopez.  Tom Bilyeu had him on Impact Theory recently, and the majority of his fans swarmed with positive comments.  On the other hand, those same people who feel that Tai is better than them began spewing rhetoric at everyone and everything about Tai.  Personally, I have no idea who Tai’s followers are, but regardless of what aisle people may be on, you do have to realize that Tai has that version of a material mask on.

I love how Lewis Howes put it.  He said, “listen to Tai is to watch his YouTube videos. And to listen to his insight is to watch him dispense it from the captain’s chair of a private jet surrounded by models in bandage dresses. Or from backstage at a concert. Or poolside at a private villa. Or in his giant Beverly Hills mansion. This extra bit of detail is like theater or a costume, and without it, it’s almost like he thinks his ideas will have less value. Or worse, they won’t matter.”

Like Lewis Howes said, all that materialism invalidates the quality of a person’s idea.

Podcast

Lewis Howes: The Material Mask & Tai Lopez Excerpt

YIKES! I mean, I can write probably a book on what Americans deem to be happiness – just go to Beverly Hills and see yourself! Yes, I took shot at Beverly Hills, although I stay there with an ex-boss of mine and his wife for a day this past April.  The Material Mask – the most highly sought after mask on the face of the planet.

From Instagrammer influencers posing with six-figure cars, to people flaunting their riches on yachts.  I find it very laughable because deep down inside those individuals are insecurities far beyond what “normal” people have.

For example, the YouTube guru who took the world by storm over a two-year period, Tai Lopez, is deemed as a “scam” artist.  Some people say that he packaged his own course from Jack Canfield’s ‘Success Principles.”  Others dissected his videos to the molecular level when they realized that some of the people he would be in the video with, at the time, weren’t even listening to him.  Collection of books in the garage; house “rented” out, women wearing 2-piece bikinis and so much more.  Nonetheless, this man amassed a fortune behind a very ambiguous past and everyone to this date is still unaware of his age.

Get this, regardless of what you might or might not like about him, he was one of those people who didn’t have that type of money when he was younger.  So, when he got the money, he lavished himself in it and had to show everyone.  His Tedx, called the ‘Good Life,’ was a bit laughed, in my opinion.  This coming from a public speaker – but this human being by the name of Tai Lopez has still been able to make millions of dollars.  Dollars that he must show to the rest of the world to make them feel inferior.

Dale Carnegie’s ‘How To Win Friends & Influence People’ – Full Book Review + Podcasts From My Favorite Chapters

It’s been a long time since I’ve done podcasts and blogs on this particular book because I thought the substantial amount of great material dwindled towards the end.  So, here are my best chapter and podcasts down below if you want to listen on in!

 

Do This & You’ll Be Welcomed Anywhere

If we want to make friends, let’s greet people with animation and enthusiasm. When somebody calls you on the telephone use the same psychology. Say “Hello” in tones that bespeak how pleased you are to have the person call. Many companies train their telephone operators to greet all callers in a tone of voice that radiates interest and enthusiasm. The caller feels the company is concerned about them. Let’s remember that when we answer the telephone tomorrow.

Showing a genuine interest in others not only wins friends for you, but may develop in its customers a loyalty to your company.

“I would like you to know how much I appreciate your staff. Everyone is so courteous, polite and helpful. What a pleasure it is, after waiting on a long line, to have the teller greet you pleasantly.
Last year my mother was hospitalized for five months. Frequently I went to Marie Petrucello, a teller. She was concerned about my mother and inquired about her progress.”

 

The Big Secret of Dealing With People

Complimenting and the desire of feeling important.

“The next time you enjoy filet mignon at the club, send word to the chef that it was excellently prepared, and when a tired salesperson shows you unusual courtesy, please mention it.”

“Try leaving a friendly trail of little sparks of gratitude on your daily trips. You will be surprised how they will set small flames of friendship that will be rose beacons on your next visit.”

“When we are not engaged in thinking about some definite problem, we usually spend about 95 percent of our time thinking about ourselves. Now, if we stop thinking about ourselves for a while and begin to think of the other person’s good points, we won’t have to resort to flattery so cheap and false that it can be spotted almost before it is out of the mouth.”

Excerpt From: Dale Carnegie. “How to Win Friends & Influence People.” iBooks.

How To Interest People

Be interested in what others have to say.

How To Make People Like You Instantly

When someone is having a bad day, compliment them. (Story of Port of Subs in the podcast down below).

You Can’t Win An Argument

You can’t win an argument. You can’t because if you lose it, you lose it; and if you win it, you lose it. Why? Well, suppose you triumph over the other man and shoot his argument full of holes and prove that he is non compos mentis. Then what? You will feel fine. But what about him? You have made him feel inferior. You have hurt his pride. He will resent your triumph. And—

The Safety Valve In Handling Complaints

Most people trying to win others to their way of thinking do too much talking themselves. Let the other people talk themselves out. They know more about their business and problems than you do. So ask them questions. Let them tell you a few things.
If you disagree with them you may be tempted to interrupt. But don’t. It is dangerous. They won’t pay attention to you while they still have a lot of ideas of their own crying for expression. So listen patiently and with an open mind. Be sincere about it. Encourage them to express their ideas fully.

Final Podcast of This Book

Dale Carnegie’s: Making People Glad To Do What You Want

Because of our personal preferences and interests, we’re never able to look at life through someone else’s shoes, right? We want to look at how we can benefit ourselves first versus anyone else.  That’s why the term “selfish” gets thrown around so much in relationships and friendships.

How can you begin to suggest things to someone, but first show them the rewards of it?

1. Be sincere. Do not promise anything that you cannot deliver. Forget about the benefits to yourself and concentrate on the benefits to the other person.

  • I stopped making promises a long time ago because I would have a fulfilment of about 50%.  Not only do you lose face, but also respect.  The distrust begins to increase and then people just think you’re full of s***.

2. Know exactly what it is you want the other person to do.

3. Be empathetic. Ask yourself what it is the other person really wants.

  • Always look at it from their standpoint and how they can benefit from it – your standpoint can wait.

4. Consider the benefits that person will receive from doing what you suggest.

  • This part can be fun.  As I talked about in my podcast about a father seeking out the benefits of his child, this can relate to a lot of parents out there.

5. Match those benefits to the other person’s wants.

6. When you make your request, put it in a form that will convey to the other person the idea that he personally will benefit. We could give a curt order like this: “John, we have customers coming in tomorrow and I need the stockroom cleaned out. So sweep it out, put the stock in neat piles on the shelves and polish the counter.” Or we could express the same idea by showing John the benefits he will get from doing the task: “John, we have a job that should be completed right away. If it is done now, we won’t be faced with it later. I am bringing some customers in tomorrow to show our facilities. I would like to show them the stockroom, but it is in poor shape. If you could sweep it out, put the stock in neat piles on the shelves, and polish the counter, it would make us look efficient and you will have done your part to provide a good company image.
