I have been busy….but in a good way!
That’s why I haven’t posted anything in over two weeks.
I mentioned last time that I had had a kind of epiphany and understood exactly what I want to do now.
Well … that’s exactly what I have been working on.
In order to keep myself moving in a positive direction and continually ‘rebooting’ myself so that I am ‘upgraded’ and functioning as I want to …
I have decided to create some self-help programs that might help other people.
The first one will be released in early July and will be all about overcoming stress.
As you know, I’m not a self-help guru or anything. I genuinely don’t want to be Tony Robbins or Brendon Burchard (as much as I admire both of them!)
I’m just an ordinary bloke who is trying to improve his own life. Along the way, I think I’ve picked up a few things that might help others.
Particularly in the area of managing stress.
I’ve worked in education in the UK for the past 15 years and that certainly teaches you a thing or two about stress!
Here’s my thinking …
If I force myself to take a leap of faith and produce something that might help other people improve their lives then this should have three very positive outcomes:
1. I will get really clear on what is important in my own life
2. I can share my recent experiences as an ordinary person who has been through it
3. I can make a difference to other people and gain real meaning and purpose
That’s why I am willing to put in the time and effort to create something.
Of course, it’s going to involve some risk.
Firstly, there is the worry … ie: ‘who am I to do this? Why would anyone listen to me?’
In the end, I have to believe that everyone has something to share. And in all honesty, I’d rather listen to someone who is normal and will suggest realistic answers that will work in the real world, rather than some expert super-hero who is operating at a much higher level than everyone else.
Secondly, there is the very real worry that no one will be interested.
I’m less worried about that now.
The reason is that there are many people out there looking for solutions. That’s why people read blogs … including this one.
I have already made a product in the past (Happy New You). You may have bought it?
I made that just to pull together everything I had learned so far on my journey and I’m pleased that it has helped so many people. I also didn’t really believe it was possible to be able to sell your ideas like that. But the feedback I have had has been very positive!
But now, I want to really work hard at providing specific solutions to specific problems!
I’m going to continue to use this blog to share everything I am working on in my life.
It really is a great place for me to explore my ideas and share them with a growing audience. And I am so grateful for you continuing to read these posts!
As it is approaching the half-way point in the year, I thought this would be a good time to share with you what my aims are for the rest of 2015.
So, here is a kind of mid-year ‘stock take’.
Aims for the rest of 2015
1. Continue to focus on my health and get weight down to 12 stone
2. Study improvement and develop my motivation, energy, success and happiness
3. Create self-help products and build my business
I read recently that the human mind works best in 3s. We can’t really remember much more than that. So my 3 are health, improvement, business.
At the end of the year, I am going to see exactly how far I have come in those 3 areas.
I’d love to hear what the 3 key areas you are going to work on and achieve massive improvement in by the end of 2015. Please comment below.
Cheers for now,
