Stephen Covey’s 8th Habit | Season 6 – Episode 17 | Inspire Others to Find Their Voice

To be honest with you, I know that the stats are only a fraction of my unbelievable influence. After getting a number of emails, messages and people linking up with me on Instagram, I’ve realized now that I’m inspiring others to find their voice, passion, and core genius. This is the next segment of this book.

“Once you’ve found your own voice, the choice to expand your influence, to increase your contribution, is the choice to inspire others to find their voice. Inspire (from the Latin inspirare) means to breathe life into another. As we recognize, respect and create ways for others to give voice to all four parts of their nature—physically, mentally, emotionally/socially and spiritually—latent human genius, creativity, passion, talent and motivation are unleashed. It will be those organizations that reach a critical mass of people and teams expressing their full voice that will achieve next-level breakthrough in productivity, innovation and leadership in the marketplace and society.”

Topic: Don’t Settle for Less!

We’ve got a LONG PODCAST today! DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS, PEOPLE! I was talking to a teacher from Swaziland yesterday and she made a very important point when we were giving our stories. I told her, “there was nothing else left for me in that area of life but I kept giving myself false hope due to complacency.”

She said, “that was the turning point. You needed to take that massive leap to up-level yourself because you had finished the last chapter long ago.”

Right now some of you are literally working at jobs that you finished years ago.

That’s the truth.

In this episode, I talk about how people get into FAD or PWM (people without money) markets.

For example, Bitcoin was a FAD market. In 2018, the hysteria was insane. You had people making podcasts, videos, etc….and they all fell for it. Sure, Bitcoin still exists today, but the hysteria has gone away and the voices are now silent.

I read a post on FB yesterday that someone I knew once tried creating a business for new grads. Well, if you just graduated from university, more than likely you’re in debt — therefore, you’re in a PWM market. I’m not lucky, but when I entered the ESL space, I knew that this was a billion-dollar industry with a massive opportunity to go to AR/VR in the future with an insane amount of collaborations. So, because I’m worldwide, I’m not reliant on economies that have deteriorated (Thailand and probably have the countries on planet Earth). There are economies that are surging, at the moment, and because I’m a trainer and have specific skill-sets, I attract those individuals because I have assets.

I’m in a People-With-Money market. This is something you need to consider before starting a business.

RICH DAD POOR DAD | S5 – E48 | LESSON VIII | 10 STEPS TO DEVELOP YOUR POWERS #5 pAY yoURSELF fIRST

If you cannot get control of yourself, do not try to get rich. It makes no sense to invest, make money, and blow it. It is the lack of self-discipline that causes most lottery winners to go broke soon after winning millions. It is the lack of self-discipline that causes people who get a raise to immediately go out and buy a new car or take a cruise.

It is difficult to say which of the 10 steps is the most important. But of all the steps, this step is probably the most difficult to master if it is not already a part of your makeup. I would venture to say that personal self-discipline is the number-one delineating factor between the rich, the poor, and the middle class.

Simply put, people who have low self-esteem and low tolerance for financial pressure can never be rich. As I have said, a lesson learned from my rich dad was that the world will push you around. The world pushes people around, not because other people are bullies, but because the individual lacks internal control and discipline. People who lack internal fortitude often become victims of those who have self-discipline.

Now, I will admit that there are people I have actually sought out because they had money. But I was not after their money; I was seeking their knowledge. In some cases, these people who had money have become dear friends. I’ve noticed that my friends with money talk about money. They don’t do it to brag. They’re interested in the subject. So I learn from them, and they learn from me. My friends who are in dire financial straits do not like talking about money, business, or investing. They often think it rude or unintellectual. So I also learn from my friends who struggle financially. I find out what not to do.

Topic: Drop These Types of Business Partners

Some people are just so ignorant.

My intuition nudged at me a few months ago about a guy who made a ridiculous comment through a text message. So, I blocked him, but after going to a business where we have mutual business partners, he was there. I decided to unblock him and give him a chance — but after I caught him in a couple of lies and he tried throwing me under the bus by throwing a long-term business partnership in flames….I backed off.

Then there was an ignorant comment such as, “oh, I guess it didn’t feel good making less than ________ baht this month.”

First, never talk about a black man’s money.

Two, why would you even make a jaw-dropping, head-scratching ridiculous remark like that?

Three, Hold this BLOCK.

In this podcast, I talk about NEVER IGNORING THE INTUITION. If someone makes a comment straight off the back and something tells you “I don’t like this person,” that voice is your intuition and you should listen to it.

BUSINESS ENGLISH PODCAST | interviewee | Hernan Sias | Business Bros Podcast | Developing Your Skillset

Back in late March when the entire world began their quarantines, I brought a teacher-friend of mine by the name of Hernan Sias back onto the ESL podcast. Oh, not the ESL this time, but the Business English podcast. In the midst of all the chaos, my body wasn’t reacting well to the shutdown and it felt like I was confined to nothing. However, during the beginning of the closures were a series of interviews that made me realize that this is one of the glorious moments in history for those “I only have a job” type of people to finally wake up. Hernan talks about an array of topics, including starting a podcast, preparing yourself during the quarantine, and how you can develop skillsets. You guys won’t be disappointed, so make sure you hit the link down below!

Business English Podcast | Investment | Episode 003 | All Levels | Retirement Planning

Business English podcast is back! And it’s back with a BANG!

I know, some of you are saying “retirement?! I’m trying to survive!” However, when your fight-or-flight system is engaged, your perception of life could also be foggy. This could be dangerous because you don’t have the end in mind/keeping your eye on the prize. When the dust is settled, dozens of countries will be trillions in debt; Disney has furloughed tens of thousands of employees; airlines have collapsed; and it continues to get worse.

People are saying “life will never be the same anymore!” Yeah, maybe it’s time for you to change your game. Perhaps it’s time for you to stop working for someone and begin working for yourself. We’re living in interesting times now with lots of downtime and time to also develop skills. So, it’s time to start thinking things through.

In the business english premium podcast, which is available down below in the link ($10 dollars a month or $100 dollars a year) you’re going to hear me discuss about retirement planning, emails from people who are looking into investment advisors, and also be able to work in potential groups and discuss different retirement products for a specific individual. And, after all that is finished, a listening!

Don’t miss out! My business English podcast is FIRE!

RICH DAD POOR DAD | S5 – E45 | LESSON VII | OVERCOMING Arrogance

“What I know makes me money. What I don’t know loses me money. Every time I have been arrogant, I have lost money. Because when I’m arrogant, I truly believe that what I don’t know is not important,” rich dad would often tell me.

I have found that many people use arrogance to try to hide their own ignorance. It often happens when I am discussing financial statements with accountants or even other investors.

They try to bluster their way through the discussion. It is clear to me that they don’t know what they’re talking about. They’re not lying, but they are not telling the truth.

There are many people in the world of money, finances, and investments who have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about. Most people in the money industry are just spouting off sales pitches like used-car salesmen. When you know you are ignorant in a subject, start educating yourself by finding an expert in the field or a book on the subject.

RICH DAD POOR DAD | S5 – E43 | LESSON VII | OVERCOMING Laziness

Busy people are often the most lazy. We have all heard stories of a businessman who works hard to earn money. He works hard to be a good provider for his wife and children. He spends long hours at the office and brings work home on weekends. One day he comes home to an empty house. His wife has left with the kids. He knew he and his wife had problems, but rather than work to make the relationship strong, he stayed busy at work. Dismayed, his performance at work slips and he loses his job.

Today, I often meet people who are too busy to take care of their wealth. And there are people too busy to take care of their health. The cause is the same. They’re busy, and they stay busy as a way of avoiding something they do not want to face. Nobody has to tell them. Deep down they know. In fact, if you remind them, they often respond with anger or irritation.

If they aren’t busy at work or with the kids, they’re often busy watching TV, fishing, playing golf, or shopping. Yet deep down they know they are avoiding something important. That’s the most common form of laziness: laziness by staying busy.

Rich dad forbade the words, “I can’t afford it.” In my real home, that’s all I heard. Instead, rich dad required his children to say, “How can I afford it?” He believed that the words “I can’t afford it” shut down your brain. It didn’t have to think anymore. “How can I afford it?” opened up the brain and forced it to think and search for answers.

But most importantly, he felt the words, “I can’t afford it,” were
a lie. And the human spirit knows it. “The human spirit is very, very powerful,” he would say. “It knows it can do anything.” By having a lazy mind that says, “I can’t afford it,” a war breaks out inside you. Your spirit is angry, and your lazy mind must defend its lie. The spirit is screaming, “Come on. Let’s go to the gym and work out.” And the lazy mind says, “But I’m tired. I worked really hard today.” Or the human spirit says, “I’m sick and tired of being poor. Let’s get out there and get rich.” To which the lazy mind says, “Rich people are greedy. Besides it’s too much bother. It’s not safe. I might lose money. I’m working hard enough as it is. I’ve got too much to do at work anyway. Look at what I have to do tonight. My boss wants it finished by morning.”

“I can’t afford it” also causes sadness, a helplessness that leads
to despondency and often depression. “How can I afford it?” opens
up possibilities, excitement, and dreams. So rich dad was not so concerned about what we wanted to buy as long as we understood that “How can I afford it?” creates a stronger mind and a dynamic spirit.
