The power of TED talks |Inspiration, Motivation and knowledge

I have known for years that they are a wonderful source of motivation and inspiration but have not really sat down and watched them before. We are doing this instead of watching TV and it is so much more powerful.

Recently we have decided it is time to get rid of our satellite TV service and have starting using Chromecast to watch other stuff and this has opened up a whole other side to watching. I am constantly amazed at the things my husband finds for our viewing pleasure

Hi guys it has been a while but I just have to share with you something my husband and I have taken to doing lately.

We have started listening to TED and TEDx talks and they have been really good. It has been a great way to spend time we would otherwise have spent watching normal TV.

I have known for years that they are a wonderful source of motivation and inspiration but have not really sat down and watched them before.  We are doing this instead of watching TV and it is so much more powerful.

Recently we have decided it is time to get rid of our satellite TV service and have starting using Chromecast to watch other stuff and this has opened up a whole other side to watching.  I am constantly amazed at the things my husband finds for our viewing pleasure

In the last week we have seen talks from an Australian that s an absolute master at beatboxing and looping.  What he does with his voice forever amazes me.

Then we have watched one by Tim Urban on Procrastination.  That was so good.  Tim talks about the what the procrastinators mind looks like compared to the non-procrastinator.  He talks about the rational thinker part of the brain versus the have fun monkey and then also the Panic monster. I could so relate to this.  I am a procrastinator from way back and it even though I overcome it most of the time there are still times when I would rather do everything except what I am supposed to be doing at the time.

An example of that is, I am trying to get my tax organised at the moment.  Do you think I can sit down for more than 10 minutes before something else has caught my attention?  It might be putting our gas Barbeque together, or getting on and doing some badly needed de-cluttering, or deciding that tonight I am going to cook a  stew so then spending the next half hour or so going through recipe books.  I know I will achieve it, but as Tim says it is usually only when the panic monster really kicks in.

Do you have this kind of problem too?

Here it is for your enjoyment.

Another one we have watched this week was ” do you think you can draw?”  This was amazing letting you learn that anyone no matter how bad you think you are can draw.  This was eye-opening and very enlightening. How many of you once you reach adulthood really feel you can not draw anymore?  Drawing is not a creative channel you can use?

Watch this talk by Graham Shaw and you will realise that everyone can draw.  Even if it just to make a power point presentation just a bit more interesting.

 

This  third talk was the first one I saw and I immediately started taking notes. This about Drawing your future. This is something I am learning at the moment through the teachings of William Wood in the Next Level Mastermind training I am doing.  It is a simple way to do goal setting and the three steps required to achieve your goals.

 

 See it,

Believe it

ACT on it.

 

I hope you have enjoyed these talks today.  I sure did and If you did please let me know.  If you want access to more inspiration and teaching ask me about Project Titan and the Empower Network.

I have learned so much from both product ranges.

Have a great day

Procrastination | Reasons for Procrastination

There are two main reasons for procrastination, the fear of success and the fear of failure. Today I go a bit more in depth of these two fears and ways to overcome them.

Reasons for Procrastination

Over the last few posts I have been talking about procrastination.  In the first post I was fairly general about some of the reasons for Procrastination,  in the second post I shared some quotes about procrastination and how they apply to me and in this post I am going to discuss the two major fears that can lead to procrastination.

My husband has been doing some training as well for his business as well and his mentor said that the two main reasons for procrastination are the “fear of Success” and the “Fear of Failure” and so he suggested I go into more detail on these fears.

Why is it that so many lottery winners are back to where they started a year after they won the lottery? Why do Pop Stars that become famous overnight have so much problem dealing with it? Particularly if it is a result of a reality show.  A lot of the reason is that these people do not know how to handle success.  A lot of people do not how they would handle success if it came to them suddenly by doing something so they procrastinate.

You have to know how to deal with success, and the way you learn, is by reading and listening to audios.  Training your mind that success is natural, that you will succeed and you will be able to handle it.  Your mind has to be prepared to accept success otherwise it will self-sabotage all your efforts.

The way I am preparing my mind is reading powerful books like Napoleon Hill, listening to audios like our inner circle audios and I am also listening to subliminal recordings and hypnosis but that is not for everyone.

Other ways we can prepare ourselves are by meditation and associating with other successful people. Masterminding with other successful people enables you to associate success with you and your friends and just be accepted.

 

Reasons for Procrastination

 

The other major Fear you have to overcome often to stop procrastination is the “Fear of Failure.” With this fear you are afraid that you will fail so do not even want to start the task before you.  You might have been told all your informative years that you will never come to anything, that you might as well not try as you will fail.

One of the the first things you have to teach yourself is that all successful people have failed before they achieved.  One of the most important things to remember is that Edison failed 10000 times before he succeeded in creating a working light-bulb.  Donald Trump has failed many times but what makes him great is that he always gets up and starts again and is now one of the richest men in the world.   What you need to do is look at failure as just a step along the way to success.  Each failure gets you further along the path to success as you learn how to deal with that issue and progress further on the path to success.

The more important thing is if you fail do you just try again after analysing the reason for failure? If you do you will be preparing yourself for success and the more you do this the less you will procrastinate.

These are two main reasons for procrastination,  There are multiple reasons but most of them will boil down to these two reasons.

If you have enjoyed reading my post on reasons for Procrastination,  then comment below with examples you have come across and methods you are using to overcome these two main fears.
