New Book “Living An Abundant Life” Featuring International Success Teachers

October 27, 2008

Are you interested in the Law of Attraction?

Are you a fan of the great success teachers, including Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Dr Wayne Dyer, Brian Tracy and Neale Donald Walsch?

Do you enjoy reading inspirational stories of people who have turned their life around and achieved abundance? 

This new book, “Living an Abundant Life” is packed with success stories, tips and strategies for changing your life and manifesting abundance in all areas. 

 

 

 

Here are some of the bits I especially enjoyed in the book

  • Brian Tracy has a chapter on “Be an Optimist at All Times”. He discusses the way you need to see situations in order to remain positive so you can develop self-confidence and be unstoppable in what you want out of life! 
     
  • Jack Canfield, author of “The Success Principles” and Mark Victor Hansen discuss Habits and how to use them to change your future. If you want to be financially independent, then you need to change your money habits. You need to have a “no exception policy” where you commit to the new habit and just do it! You can determine the quality of your life by changing your habits. 
     
  • Neale Donald Walsch, author of “Conversations with God”  has a chapter on “A Few Words About Life”. He talks about opening yourself up to discernment, to understanding that what you see is not true reality, but a reality that you construct. If you learn this way of thinking, you will be able to see the opportunities hidden in the problems you face today. 
     
  • An inspirational story of how a New Zealand couple are using their spare time to build a real estate portfolio that will enable them to retire early. They focus on creating wealth while continuing to do their day jobs as well. 
     
  • Think of you and your life as a garden. Do you have dark and shady places? riotous colour and flowers? zen water features and calm soothing tones? How would you like your garden to be? This brilliant chapter likens life to a garden that we need to tend so it blooms perfectly. You can turn your out of control jungle into a beautiful thriving paradise. The author, Lizzy Yates, encourages an active thought process for mapping out how you want your garden to be. Cultivate your garden with vision boards, workshops, education, life coaching, meditation, journaling and motivation. 
     
  • Dr Wayne Dyer’s chapter contains 12 specific tools for de-cluttering your life and allowing inspiration in. It includes slowing down… “There is more to life than increasing its speed” – Gandhi
     
  • The inspirational story of the retirees who took off for a round-the-world trip to 33 countries in one year – abundance is more than just material wealth! 
     
  • How Sandy Forster went from welfare to millionaire using the Law of Attraction – ask, receive, be grateful and act!
     
  • Goals are dreams with deadlines. Dream big and go for what inspires you. Then make your goals SMARTER – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-bound, Exciting and Rewarding. Choose your attitude actively and consciously. Make it creative, positive and open as attitudes are the essence of success. 
     
  • How to achieve business success through tough times by trusting your own voice and creativity, change thought patterns to focus on the positive and go for adventure in your life! How one writer started a quality magazine and set up an organisation of women yacht racing for charity
     
  • A lovely story about one woman’s move from people massage and healing, to pet massage. Her wonderful chapter is about how the energy we give off in life affects our pets health as well as our own. They can be a reflection of our true health.  
     
  • How one brave woman moved from a life of domestic abuse to one of abundance and happiness, after reading books on success and life change. 
     
  • How to believe and take action in order to achieve your dreams and make them a reality. Listen when your body tells you that what you are doing is bad for you. If stress, long hours and bad diet are wearing you down, then you need to listen and find out what you really want to do.

No B.S. Wealth Attraction for Entrepreneurs: Dan Kennedy

October 13, 2008

I like Dan Kennedy. He manages to say what he thinks, offend people and they still pay him tons of cash because he knows his stuff. He really is no B.S. Saying that, I have heard audios of him speak and they have been incredibly boring. Perhaps it is the age gap…but I do love his books! 

Wealth Attraction for Entrepreneurs

Here are my key points from his latest book “No B.S. Wealth Attraction for Entrepreneurs: The Ultimate, No Holds Barred, Kick Butt, Take No Prisoners, Guide to Really Getting Rich”. I thought I had read enough wealth books, but no, there is always more to learn! If I can still take notes, then there is definitely new material to learn from.

  • If you believe on any level that wealth is limited, you will be held back. If you can make these beliefs go away, you will turn your attraction to wealth on full power. [Personal note: This may be difficult in the present financial situation, but be hopeful and view it as a restructuring of wealth; not a loss]
     
  • “Entrepreneurial success and wealth creation require a willingness to risk and experience failure and the emotional resiliency to recover from it quickly, decisively, passionately, and persistently”
     
  • Hardly anyone gets to success in a straight line. Keep heading in the general direction and adjust along the way.  
     
  • Break free of the money-work link. Money does not have to be earned hard – but can be earned smart. Do more in less time. 
     
  • Wealth will not find you sitting in front of the TV. Get out there. Be seen. Make opportunities. Take action. 
     
  • Any decision is better than no decision. It is easier to change direction once you are moving. Zigzagging is a good way to get to a goal. 
     
  • Keep the income flow. Do something to “prime the pump” every day, and then you won’t be left with a dry period of less income. 
     
  • Expose yourself to all kinds of other markets and stimuli. Be open to using ideas from other industries. Read. Associate with like-minded people and successful entrepreneurs. 
     
  • Wealth is attracted to clarity. Clarity of the income level you expect. Clarity of how much your net worth will increase. Clarity in what you want. Clarity on the reasons why you want what you do. Clarity on what you don’t want. 
     
  • You need a clear, vivid mental picture of what your business life should look like. You should also have detailed, constantly updated plans. Clarity allows your conscious and unconscious to work in tandem. 
  • Be cautious of need. Money likes independence. Don’t expand your “need” e.g. don’t expand your overheads. 
     
  • Wealth and value and real integrity are all linked together. Anyone trying to get more wealth without providing more value is dishonest and unethical and immoral, and is attempting to defy the fundamental laws of life”
     
  • Your behaviour must be congruent with your goals. Don’t bullshit yourself! 
     
  • Mark Victor Hansen “The more aligned you are with the things you want, the more powerfully you attract them.” The things you congruently want have no choice but to be attracted to you. 
     
  • Act like a rich person. Save 10%. Give 10% away. Wealthy people do both those things.
     
  • Money moves on courage. You need to courage to act early, to not listen to others, to screw up, to pursue crazy goals, to ask, to ignore criticism. 
     
  • Don’t over-emphasise making money. Pay attention to investing, preserving and multiplying money. Income varies but growth happens when income turns into equity. Income is spent. Equity is invested. [Related post here: Its not how much you earn, it’s how much you keep]
     
  • Jim Rohn “Miss a meal if you have to, but don’t miss a book”. Invest in your education. 

This book is packed with great examples – and what I need to learn is not what you need to learn! So this book is recommended! You can buy it from Amazon here.
