I have just spent an amazing weekend at ‘The Next Step’, a personal development seminar run by Joseph McClendon III in London. It’s the second time I’ve been and uses many of the principles I’ve learned during my studies of neuro sciences over the past few years, so I wasn’t sure if I’d get that much out of it this time.
One thing I do believe, is that you will only ever get out what you put in, so I went along with an open mind, ready to learn and as Joseph says ‘Play Full Out’.
In one weekend I have moved more, remembered more and learned more than in the last year. I smashed a wooden board with my bear hands on Saturday, which you can see below and have set myself the most amazing targets to achieve this year. AND most importantly of all I have the mindset and the system I need to get them and I am ready to put in the activity I need to. With these three things in place I cannot fail but to find SUCCESS!
The weekend has given me loads of inspiration for the Personal Development Programme Julian and I are creating at the moment which we will tell you more about soon…..
Do you believe you can achieve what you want with the right mindset?
Success is that elusive thing that we all search for, in one form or another, at some point in our lives. Early on, we might measure success in terms of being popular in the playground, or top of the class. Later, we might have a hobby or sport we want to excel at. We might think we are successful if we have an attractive partner or lots of friends, material possessions or money in the bank. We might measure our own success through the results of others, like our children for example, or people that we help, teach and interact with.
However we measure success, the point is that we do all measure it and we strive to be successful in at least one area of our lives. You could even argue the point that people who really mess up in some way are actually successful. If you consider success to be the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted, as defined in some dictionaries and they set out to fail, then in doing so they are successful – almost like anti-success!
So how can you ensure success, or at least give yourself the very best chance? After much study and deliberation, I would like to offer you a three step formula for success, giving you the three key elements you need to create your own success.
The first thing you need in order to be successful is the right mindset…

One of our goals for 2011, is to have a best selling ebook and we are in the process of writing one on self development now.
We are covering lots of areas, with an NLP (neuro linguistic programming) bias, because that’s our field of expertise. Some of the topics we are covering include:
- What your unconscious mind is and how it works for you
- How your mindset determines your perception, communication and results
- Where your beliefs, self esteem, values and attitudes come from
- What they do for you and how you change them if they are no longer helpful to you
- General personal development and mindset improvement techniques
To make sure its relevant for today and offers really great value, we were wondering, if there was any question that you could ask on that subject, what would it be?
We’d really appreciate your help with this, either by commenting here or in an email if you prefer (email@example.com) obviously any comments we receive will remain anonymous.
Once completed, the book will be available to buy and for you to sell and make some money from as an affiliate product in Clickbank.
Thanks in advance,
Amanda and Julian
I was looking through some old pictures today. One of them is of a pretty young girl aged around 13. She is leaning back in the sunshine, laughing and she looks happy, as every 13 year old should.
I know that this girl had a hard time in the years that followed this photograph and ended up addicted to drugs, in jail and with serious long term health conditions to contend with as a result. I know that to this day she suffers because of the immediate repercussions and as a result of the prejudices of other people.
What first struck me as I looked at this picture, was that at the time it was taken, she had her whole life ahead of her. She could have been, had or done anything she wanted with the right tools and guidance and it made me feel sad for her and the things she has missed out on.
Then the real penny dropped. This girl is no different to any of us on any given day. The point we are at is a result of the sum of all our days, thoughts and actions to date. Where we go from here is up to us, we have the power to choose our future in every instant.
New Year is traditionally a time for thinking about rebirth and yet we can do this any day we wish. Why don’t you think today about where you want to be tomorrow, next week, next year? Don’t let the past be an excuse to avoid the brilliant future you could choose to have. Imagine being able to meet yourself as a child, wouldn’t you want to know that this child was going to have a wonderful life thanks to you? Whilst we are all a day older than we were yesterday, today is still the day it always was and will be. What better time to decide to start a bright new tomorrow than today?
