Why I read a book a day & the Law of 33% by Tai Lopez



Why you should practice the Law of the 33% because it will lead to more success in your life:

This is the Law of the 33%:

Spend a third of your time with people below you. This will help you to stay motivated, feel better about yourself, help you to acknowledge your privileges and accomplishments, express gratitude and much more. It’s cool. Also, since these people are inferior to you, this means that you are now superior to them, so you might also use your knowledge and wisdom to help THEM! It’s a cool feeling. Try it!

The next 33% of your time spend with people on your level. This is where you can partner up with somebody, push each other, compare results in a non-threatening way and also stay on track. It usually boosts your learning curve and keeps you in the game if you have somebody next to you who has the same values and ambitions as you have. Think about it just like a gym buddy: you might not always feel like going to the gym and work out, but you still have your buddy who relies on you going with him. You are pushing each other through the hard times where either one of you lacks the motivation to do it by himself. You back each other up. It’s cool too.

The last third of your time you spend with people superior to you. Because you have already spend two-thirds of your time with people below or at your level you feel a lot of happy feelings, which is great. The last third now inspires you to go beyond what you are currently achieving. It opens up new possibilities in your mind and gets your winner mentality going. It puts excuses and hardships into perspective and oftentimes this is more than is needed to overcome the hard times along your journey.

Motivation Monday – “No” is just a Word

Motivation Monday – Motivation, Success & Greatness by Will Smith



Before anything in life can ever be accomplished it must first be achieved in your mind. In the following video you are given an excellent example of what it takes to achieve greatness and success. I strongly believe that greatness is in each person but it is up that individual to excel and achieve greatness. A lot of people love to dream and think about what it would be like like to succeed in life, but very very few are willing to sacrifice to reach those dreams.

Will Smith is an excellent example of what drive and determination can accomplish for someone with dreams of success and greatness. While everyone may not have the same level of talent, we all have the ability to work hard each day to make our dreams come true. Hard work will always beat out talent when talent does not work hard enough. It takes motivation and a excitement for living each day in order to have the right mental toughness to ever achieve anything great. It is always interesting to take a closer look at the different celebrities that have achieved the dreams and succeed.

While most of the focus is on the celebrities out doing foolish things, most of them have a unmatched work ethic to get to where they are. Just like the end of this video states, “You don’t set out to build a wall, you have to lay one brick at a time, and you must lay that brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid”. This is something that can be applied to all aspects of life, whether your working out or just cleaning the house. While Will Smith may not be the most talented actor in Hollywood, he is most definitely considered amongst the best and most well known, strongly as a result for a passion and love for what he does.

By simply outworking his competition he is able to make up for any lack of talent or areas he may not be the best at. For some closing thoughts, I just wish that each person would live up to their full potential and don’t let others derail you of your dreams. If you want to succeed or have big dreams, make sure you do everything in your power to reach these goals and know that no matter what gets in your way your going to accomplish them. By waking up each day and living it as it was your last, put in every ounce of your energy to achieve these dreams of greatness.

Motivation Monday!!! – Take Control of your Life by Anthony Robbins

Anthony Robbins Motivation – Tony Robbins 5 Steps To Take Control Of Your Life Now

Tony Robbins has been an inspiration for millions. Love him and his philosophy or not, it is undeniable that he has had a positive impact on millions of people. He has sold over 30-million motivational tapes, published three best-selling self-help books, more than 2 million people attended his seminars and another 10,000 (including myself) have attended his mastery university in Hawaii. His core products include Get The Edge – Unlimited Power – Date with Destiny – Mastery University and more.
Here are the top 10 lessons that I learned from Tony Robbins:
1) By altering your body’s physiology, you can achieve an immediate change of your emotional state. The mind will follow whatever state your phsyical body is in and not vice-versa.

2) Ask specific questions of yourself (in your self-talk) to direct and control your attention to the various aspects of the human experience. The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the quality of the questions you ask of yourself.

3) Get leverage to create personal change by associating an old behavior with massive pain and the desired new behavior with massive pleasure. Tony is a big believer in the pain/pleasure principles of life and this applies in business as well.

4) When you get stuck, interupt your limiting pattern by doing something totally unexpected.

5) You can condition your behavior by visualizing it over and over again. This is not exactly unique to Tony Robbins, but he does reinforce this message in all of his products.

6) Goal-setting strategy: Know your end outcome; Take massive intelligent action; Have sensory-acuity to notice if you are getting the results you desire and if not; change your approach; and change *until* you get your end outcome.

7) Create a “Compelling future” by vividly imagining your end result to generate enthusiasm and power within yourself. The past does not equal the future. Find beliefs that support your goals and desires.

8) Youth is Power! This is one of Tony’s beliefs. Even if you don’t have fancy degrees, your youth can still mean power, flexibility and opportunity for your life.

9) Principles of CANI! CANI stands for Constant And Never-ending Improvement. It’s a basic tenet of Tony Robbins.

10) NLP can be useful. NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming and there are many NLP undertones in Tony’s basic tenets. He went on to morph NLP into his own technology called “NAC” (Neuro Associative Conditioning).
