The Big 10 Ideas

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS - Don Miguel Ruiz

1. Simple Does Not Mean Ineffective
“The definition of a genius is taking the complex and making it simple” -Albert Einstein
This book “too simple” or “we already know this” Reviews on Amazon - BASIC. Writing style of 4th grader / etc Often times easier to write something off then practice fundamentals (health hacks / tactics vs. fundamentals). Yes, these 4-agreements you have heard in some way before, have we lived them? Internalized them? Reminded of them.

2. Be Impeccable With Your Words
Your word is your bond. Words are most powerful force we have. In book: words spell cast on people - double edged, used to uplift or tear down. Why? because words implant thoughts witch can lead to beliefs and turn into actions. Your words influence.

3. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing anyone does is because of us. Example:
BAD DAY: missed deadline / hung over / 5 hours sleep / stressed - how would you treat your wife?
GOOD DAY: got promotion / paycheck / saw friends at lunch - how would you treat your wife?
Same person, same situations - two totally different moods because of a day. Two different outcomes. Nothing anyone does is because of us.

MARCUS AURELIUS: tell us not to worry about the opinion of other people who don’t even have a good opinion of themselves! He tells us: “The approval of such men, who do not even stand well in their own eyes, has no value for him.” Only reason we take things personally are because we agree with them! “You are stupid” - only bugs us if we let it in + agree.

4. Don’t Make Assumptions
When you assume it makes an “Ass-“ out of “-ume”
EX: Me with politics and voters book. Blind guy I thought was douche bag. All had story made up in our head about someone wronging us, play it out - full conversation. When they say X i’ll say Y. Job / boss / workplace / etc. Ever happened and then they were nice about it? Feel awful. Catch yourself making assumptions.

5. Always Do Your Best
Louis CK bit: do your job - isn’t it worse?
Will change moment to moment but still give whatever your best is that day. (energy flux / mood flux / season flux / etc)

Mp3 Version ► (coming soon)
Master Journaling ► http://www.mybestjournal.com

★★★ BEST 10 IDEAS ★★★

1. Why Power
Robert Greene writer in Hollywood. These 48 Laws getting used against him. Put in non judgmental book to do w. what you will. Put in book so you can use or see when getting used against you.

2. Never Outshine The Master
“Ensure that you don’t shine so bright that your boss and peers have to hide in the shadows”
Make those above you feel superior. Do not show your talents too much, makes them insecure.

Get The Book ► http://amzn.to/2h8aBpC

3. Always Say Less Than Necessary
“Silence has a powerful effect when used in the right situation. Make silence your ally, not your foe and one thing you must not forget: You don’t learn anything new by talking.”
Ever talked to someone who had almost a blank stare? Intimidating or welcoming? When trying to impress, the more you say the more common you look and less in control. Be vague. Powerful people impress and intimidate by saying less.

4. Get Others to do the Work for You, But Always Take the Credit.
“Why would you send your heavy troops into the heart of the battle while you still have mercenaries & auxiliary troops at your disposal, willing to do your work?”
Use the skills of others to do the work for you, never do yourself what others can do for you. Your efficiency will appear god-like.

5. Use Absence to Increase Respect and Honor
"Too much circulation makes the price go down: The more you are seen and heard from, the more common you appear.”
EX: Blink 182 broke up - reunion tour 10x bigger than if kept going
EX: Scarcity creates value.
COUNTER: With business, don’t use this until people really care. consistency to build!

For more workshops and complete lessons ► http://www.mybestjournal.com

6. Concentrate Your Forces
“When looking for sources of power to elevate you, find the one key patron, the fat cow who will give you milk for a long time to come.”
80/20 principal - GSD list productivity on this channel.

7. Re-Create Yourself
“Be the master of your own image rather than letting others define if for you. Do not accept the roles that society foists on you. ”
Zero based thinking. Starting over today, would I do ______
Who would I swap places with?
Who are my mentors? How am i like them? Not like them?

8. Control the Options: Get Others to Play with the Cards you Deal
“Give people options that come out in your favor whichever one they choose. Force them to make choices between the lesser of two evils, both of which serve your purpose.”

9. Despise The Free Lunch
“What is offered for free is dangerous – it usually involves either a trick or a hidden obligation. What has worth is worth paying for. By paying your own way you stay clear of gratitude, guilt, and deceit.”
Reciprocity Principle: If i hold door for you, you’re likely to do so for me next door. If we get something for free - in danger of buying bigger ticket item out of obligation.

10. Avoid Stepping Into A Great Man’s Shoes
“Do not get lost in their shadow, or stuck in a past not of your own making: Establish your own name and identity by changing course.
Set bar low it’s easier to jump over. Big shoes are hard to fill.

11 Questions That May Change Your Life: http://www.clarkkegley.com/download/

The Most successful leaders all have one thing in common: They’ve read “How to Win Friends and Influence People”

Today we have PART II of the book summary and book review on "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie.This book will rock your communication. Dale Carnegie's classic public speaking and interpersonal communication book, how to win friends and influence people is packed full of actionable ideas and takeaways. You might also consider getting the full book for this – it’s killer!

Here are the best 10 ideas from “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie (PART II)

FULL BLOG POST: (coming soon)
GET THE BOOK: http://amzn.to/29XwSTc

★★★ BEST 10 IDEAS ★★★

1. Don’t Criticize Condemn or Complain
Puts everyone on defensive. Some people grow through praise, others through criticism.

2. Arouse In The Other Person An Eager Want
There are 3 motivations: First two are push / pull. Think of carrot or stick. Avoid pain or go towards pleasure. Third is above both those. Higher motivation. Third is your why - often gets overlooked. Driving force behind everything we do. For ourselves need a why that makes you cry (read Start With Why).

3. Smile
Shows people two things: 1. You are happy (as if having good time) 2. Friendly (oddly enough in animal kingdom means threat, but hey - humans are weird)

GET THE BOOK: http://amzn.to/29XwSTc

4. Be a Good Listener. Encourage Others to Talk About Themselves.
EX: My mom, “making friends is easy. you just smile and ask questions about the other person.” Everyone has that ONE area they can get wound up on and just GO. Lights them up. EX: My grandma quiet farm woman, get her ranting about conspiracy theories and you’re there all day. TIP: Become an expert at finding that secret passion everyone has. Ask questions!

5. Make The Other Person Feel Important - and Do It Sincerely
EX: Jim Kwik my friend. Bill Clinton - amount of presence he brings shocking. and he’s highest ever can get in world! Still does this!
EX: Say, “your right, NAME” or “You’re so right about that, NAME” or “You hit it on the head when you said ____”

GET THE BOOK: http://amzn.to/29XwSTc

6. The Only Way to Get The Best of An Argument is to:
A) Avoid it!
B) Show Respect For the Other Person’s Opinions. Never say “You’re wrong.”
C) If you are wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically. (sincere apology)
D) Begin in a friendly way.

7. Be Sympathetic With The Other Person’s Ideas and Desires.
"Three-fourths of the people you will ever meet are hungering and thirsting for sympathy. Give it to them, and they will love you.” - Dale Carnegie

8. Begin With Praise and Honest Appreciation.
Massage people into conversations. Ease into something 9/10 works better. Foreplay before you get to the meat. Even if most of us define as “no b.s / straight shooter / no beat around bush small talk” person - different when it’s personal! Harder to do. Compliment sandwich. Praise - criticism - praise.

9. Call Attention to People’s Mistakes Indirectly.
How do you give negative feedback without sounding like a jerk? or asshole? EX: Swap “BUT” for “AND” EX: “We’re really proud of you, Justin, for getting better grades this quarter. But if you worked harder in your math class, you would’ve done better.” vs. “We’re really proud of you, Justin, for getting better grades this quarter, and if you continue to work just as hard next quarter, your math grade could be as high as all the others.”

10. Praise The Slightest Improvement and Praise Every Improvement.

Today, we’re going over a formula to achieve anything you want in life.

How to Set and Achieve Your 2017 Goals. Today we're talking about goal setting! Now setting goals doesn't have to put you to sleep. It's actually one of the most powerful things you can do to stay motivated and successfully achieve what you want in 2017. This goal setting video will go over why YOU NEED to be setting goals. It will also cover what I call the "Five GOALden Rules for Setting Goals".

Picture this. It’s December 31 2017. You achieved everything you wanted to this year. It was the best year of your life. Made more money than ever before. Paid off debt. Moved into a new place. You finally traveled checked off that that bucket list trip you’ve been dreaming of. You got in the best shape of your life, friends family complimenting you asking “How you did it?”

Now the other picture: it’s December 31 2017. Another year went by and nothing changed. You’re doing the exact same things TODAY as you are a year from now. EVERYTHING. 100% the same.

What’s the difference? The second picture is how most people go about things: WING IT. Let days come and go - do it tomorrow motto. The first picture is what we’re doing today, setting goals. Crystallizing your vision so you can achieve anything you want in life.

I’ve seen the power of goal setting work with clients I’ve coached but more importantly FIRST hand in my own life. There I was I was stuck.

For more workshops and complete lessons ► http://www.mybestjournal.com

★★★ BIG IDEAS ★★★

Let me walk you through the BIGGEST 5 rules of setting goals.

1. Quantify

2. ONE BIG goal in each area Area.
Health, Business, Money, Relationships, Contribution, Travel, Adventure. (have smaller supporting goals). The number of goals you set is up to you - don’t set too many then you won’t achieve any.

3. MUST SHARE THEM!
A) Post in a comment below!
B) Tweet them or share publicly on social.
C) Tell your friends & family.

4. Revisit Goals EVERY DAY.
Write it in shower? Write it in Journal? Write it above bed?

5. Take Immediate Massive Action
NEVER leave the sight of setting a goal w.o doing something towards its attainment.

One of best ways to do this: Keep a journal!
