Most people are not living the life they really want and desire. Not because they don’t have the ability or knowledge to do so, and not because they lack the resources.

It’s lack of motivation.

The bottom line is this: the more motivated you are, the more clarity you will have, the more confidence you will have, and the better you will perform. It’s that simple.

Because if we’re being totally honest…

 

Most of us are not as motivated as consistently as we need to be to perform at our best and really create the life, health and financial freedom we are capable of, and that we deserve.

 

There’s nothing worse than knowing you’re capable of so much more, or desiring more out of life, yet you fail to do anything to change or improve.

That stops right here, right now.

 

If You’re Frustrated That Your Bank Account Doesn’t Have The Amount of Money You Desire, Or You’re Tired Of Not Having The Energy, Confidence Or Toned Body You Deserve, Then Keep Reading…

 

You may be thinking, “Joel I know motivation is a good thing and it will positively impact my success, but whenever I get motivated it doesn’t last.” 

I would agree with you 100% – Motivation doesn’t last long for most…but as the legendary motivational speaker Zig Ziglar would always say…

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” 

You need motivation in your life every day otherwise it won’t last long. That’s exactly why this program was developed around feeding you the best motivation tips, strategies, and action items you can use right now and every day to instantly feel empowered, make more money, get in better shape and make your life a masterpiece because you deserve to have that.

MMC-Audio-with-Joel-BrownThis program was created for you as a result of millions of dedicated followers of Addicted2Success. Many of which have reached out to me saying that motivation and mindset are the biggest areas they want to improve on, because having more motivation in your life and developing a thriving mindset will skyrocket your success and give you the power needed to control your destiny!

 

Now, if you’re an entrepreneur or an aspiring entrepreneur, right about now you are probably experiencing a disconnection inside your social groups, and maybe even in your family. Having unmotivated people around you with no goals, plans or dreams, can give you the feeling that you’re alone on this journey…

If this is you… Stuck in limiting social circles, wondering if you are ever going to meet and join a group of likeminded motivated individuals who have a plan, then you’re in the right place.

Trust me, I know how it feels, I WAS in the same boat as you and I’m here to tell you that our community we’ve created is the tribe of likeminded superstars you’ve been looking for.

You may be at a place in your life right now where your body, your energy and your health is worse than it’s ever been… or at the least its not where it could be and it hurts you to really take a close look in the mirror at what you’ve allowed to happen to your body and health – if that’s you, its time to change.

Maybe you’re just tired of having to live paycheck-to-paycheck and you’re not able to experience and have the things you really want, and you’re not able to live out your dreams… because you can’t afford them.

You may even worry that you’ll never achieve great success, or any financial success because you lack the current knowledge, skill sets or connections you believe you need… and at your current rate… you’ll never be able to retire, and you’ll be stuck having to work a low income job, you don’t enjoy, for the rest of your life just to pay the bills and barely support yourself and your family.

So if you feel frustrated, anxious, worried or upset after reading any of that I’m happy for you…I want you listen to what your inner-mind is telling you, because it should be motivating you to take a stand right now, that…

 

You No Longer Want To Settle For Anything But The Best In Your Life.

 

You deserve to have more financial abundance, a body you can be proud of, amazing relationships and the freedom to create and live your best life.

Because if you’re not going to experience life to the fullest, and create and live your best life possible… then you’re not really living or thriving… you’re kind of just surviving…

I want to see and hear about your extraordinary success and amazing transformation, that’s why…

 

I’m Giving You The Opportunity To “Test-Drive” The Morning Motivation Program Risk-Free For The Next 30-days.

 

Because I know the breakthroughs you will experience in your life, and I’m confident you will love the program.

 

Here’s the bottom line: The Morning Motivation Program will teach you everything you need to know about how to get motivated and stay motivated but more importantly it will give you the power to start living the life you were meant to live and a life you can truly be proud of.

No more procrastination, no more excuses, its time to step your game up, get motivated and start thriving!! …Instead of just surviving.

Joel-Brown-SwitzerlandI’m absolutely certain that if you apply just 1% of the ideas, strategies and lessons you’ll learn in the “Morning Motivation Program,” you will experience a massive improvement in your daily performance, motivation and confidence.

In addition, you will have more clarity than you’ve ever had around what your purpose and goals are, and you’ll know step-by-step how to bridge the gap between your goals and their achievement.

Now here’s the part where I tell you about how much I “tossed and turned” when trying to determine the investment in the “Morning Motivation Program.

I’ll just say that your investment in this training could be recouped in the first few hours, days or weeks, if I set the price at $247…which is still cheap compared to many of the programs on the market today.

But you won’t have to pay that. When you take action today you’ll only have to invest ONLY $47. 

That’s less than a tank of gas for your car. As ridiculous as that comparison is, it’s to make you realize this is a no brainer investment, that you can’t afford to miss out on.

Isn’t a mere $47…which is equal to about one month of cable or satellite television or a cellphone bill…worth how to discover the FASTEST way to get motivated and rapidly increase your earning ability so you can be financially free once and for all?

Visualizing a Life of Greater Abundance

Abundance is a spiritual principle that says the universe consists of all that I need and that all I need is available to me right now. We all want abundance, although few of us would say that we have it to the degree that we’d hope for. So what is the problem and how do we get to that state of experiencing it in our daily lives? The real problem—and solution—seems to lie in HOW we view abundance. (more…)

Why Smart People Think Beyond Reason to Make Powerful Decisions

How long has it been since you’ve had a tough decision to make at work? I bet it happens regularly, if it is not on a daily basis. Sure, making decisions can be exhilarating, but it can also be draining. Sometimes dreadful.

Your pulse accelerates, you start to sweat, your mind jumps from one point to the next, hoping to settle on something. You really want to make the right decision for you, for your team, for your organization. But often times, it can be a tough call. You wish you had the perfect step-by-step recipe to get to the right decision. (more…)

10 Things The Corporate World *Didn’t* Teach Me

I’ve just left the corporate world. It’s been seven years and I don’t regret a single second of it.

You’d think I would have learned everything there is to know about business in the corporate world. I didn’t.

There were a lot of gaps which I luckily was able to fill in during my entrepreneur days.

Here’s what the corporate world didn’t teach me:


1. How to think for myself

In the corporate world, you’re often told what to do.

If you don’t have the answer then some smart person, in some department will probably have the answer for you. The answer may not be the latest and greatest strategy, but it will be based on some prior knowledge.

As an entrepreneur, none of this was available to me. I’d roll up to the old Milkbar that was our office, and I’d start stacking boxes into the little van we had. More boxes of soft drink and chips meant more gold coins in our vending machines.

Gold coins could be banked at our local branch at the end of the day and that’s how petrol, electricity, uniforms and the occasional Macca’s dinner was paid for. No one told me how to do that.

I either collected the gold coins, or I didn’t. No gold coins meant game over. As an entrepreneur, that meant failure and during your 20’s that’s often the last thing you want.

Thinking for myself wasn’t taught to me it was a survival tactic. I took this tactic with me to the corporate world and people were surprised.

As my former colleague said to me the other day You don’t overthink Tim youjust get shit done while everybody else is scratching their head.


2. Time management

The corporate world is full of big companies with lots of resources.

With an abundance of anything you always have wastage. The corporate world definitely didn’t tell me how to manage time.

What could have been a five-minute phone conversation often ended up in huge email chains. It was a bit of a game.

“Every email involved another person or persons being cc’d. The ultimate trick was to blind cc people within your company. Like magic, bombs start going off and no one can work out who did what. That’s the power of BCC”

None of this was good for time management though. Lot’s of time was spent trying to communicate with one another. Meetings are a thing in the corporate world.

Every problem that exists must have a meeting. Even if it’s about whether we call the shared folder “Sales” or “Customer Files” a meeting had to be held.

Meetings in the corporate world not only suck up time but are also a fashion parade where all the biggest egos can strut their stuff.

“I’m more important and have a better job title.”

“No, I’m more important!”

This dialogue goes on for days and sometimes months. Understanding the politics is often more critical than understanding the business. Still, none of this is good for time.

The time wasted is used by the tech startup opposition to improve a bug, rethink the customer experience or out-market corporates using social media.


3. A passion for what you love

Passion in the corporate world can often be lacking. Working at a corporate for many is a way to pay the bills rather than do their life’s work.

Passion can often be traded for money, bonuses and even more impressive job titles — all of which leave you feeling more empty”

It’s not all full of zero passion, though. There are a few people that are insanely passionate and those folk shine through.

The corporate world taught me to put my passion on hold rather than use it to WOW customers with the very thing that sets me apart.


4. What people are really buying

Working at a corporate taught me that it’s all about marketing.

I knew, though, from the startup world that this very idea was wrong.

People are buying you. They’re buying the people they deal with and what those people stand for.

No client in my corporate career ever gave a damn about the commoditized products I was selling. All of my clients gave a damn about my obsession to inspire the world through personal development and entrepreneurship. They were intrigued by my five years as an entrepreneur and what I learned.

This led to customers becoming friends as opposed to people that bought widgets from me and had the money they laid tracked in a CRM as ‘revenue.’

Not once in my corporate career did I have something to sell that couldn’t be bought from somewhere else, at a lower price or with better product features. The product feature my clients bought was me


5. The power of an audience

People are often too afraid to be vulnerable in the corporate world.

I never learned the power of an audience during my career working in corporates. All of that was learned between 6 pm and 8 pm every night when I was at home from work posting on LinkedIn.

Social media is not so prominent in the corporate world because it requires you to remove the corporate mask and show your flaws. Fakeness on social channels like LinkedIn just doesn’t work. People don’t engage.

Many people told me that the audience I was building on social media was career suicide. I ignored every one of them and I’m so glad I did.

These same people that warned me to stay off social media are the same ones asking me now to help them with their own social accounts.

With an audience, you can test ideas.

With an audience, you can inspire.

With an audience, you can recruit people to your team.

With an audience, you derive meaning for your life.


6. Doing the important vs. the mediocre

In corporate business, there’s a lot of noise.

Everything looks important. Everything looks like it could become a lawsuit (especially for a corporate). Everything looks like it could become a PR scandal. Everything looks risky to that next job promotion and to the business.

That’s where mediocrity thrives. With so much noise it’s easy to spend your days filing bits of paper or moving widgets from Point A to Point B without having any clue of why you’re doing it or how it contributes to humankind.

I didn’t learn the discipline of doing the important work in corporate life.

Doing the important came out of the entrepreneurial trait of problem-solving through a vision. It came from wanting to see things better than they are.

Doing the important was fuelled by a desire to achieve a goal that everybody said wasn’t possible. It’s a rebellious philosophy that pushes mediocrity the hell out of the way.


7. The way to have a meeting (ideally no meeting)

Running a meeting in corporate life follows a formula.

This formula will put almost all attendees to sleep. It’s why when you walk into a corporate board meeting, most of the execs are looking at their phone rather than paying attention to who’s speaking.

The formula goes like this:

  • Introduce everybody in the meeting (most don’t need to be there)
  • Pretend there’s an agenda (it will get hijacked…guaranteed)
  • Pretend to solve the problem by agreeing to invite more people to a future meeting
  • Pass ownership around of the problem whilst ignoring the potential solutions
  • Assigning action items which everybody ignores (thus triggering another meeting)

“The best way to have a meeting is not to have a meeting”

Meetings are needed in the corporate world because of a lack of trust and having too many cooks in the kitchen.

Have only the people that can solve the problem in the meeting, make it short and trust in the outcome and vision you’re trying to achieve.

That very philosophy makes meetings for the most part irrelevant.


8. How to make better PowerPoint presentations

You’d think with all the PowerPoints you have to do in the corporate world to educate internal stakeholders, you’d be a freaking expert at doing them.

Quite the opposite is true.

Because of the number of PowerPoint decks you have to do in the corporate world, you get worse at them.

The decks get longer, filled with more words, more acronyms and more promises to take more action.

It’s like for every year in the corporate world you add another acronym to the sentence you’re currently writing.

The belief in the corporate world is that all problems must first begin their life in a PowerPoint.

No problem can be solved without a PowerPoint. I once tried to do a presentation with only one slide. Once I explained the one slide I had prepared with a simple diagram that a four-year-old watching Peppa Pig could understand, I then blacked out the screen.

I wanted the attention on what I was saying instead of some Times New Roman, white slide, with Size 12 Font that nobody could read.

Death by PowerPoint is a real cause of death in the corporate world. It kills dreams, ideas, free speech and the will to live.


9. The way to treat people

The corporate world taught me nothing about how to treat people.

Treating people well came from my eBay days where I learned that if you give someone on eBay the thing they want, and do what you say, you’ll get what you want.

This philosophy didn’t translate into corporate life. I was told to treat people well based on what they could do for me. If they couldn’t do anything for me then what’s the point of knowing them? Right?

Wrong.

The people I treated well who seemed to have no benefit to me ended up becoming the Managers, General Managers and Inspiring Leaders five years down the road.

By not asking for stuff all the time, by treating these future leaders with respect and by being as close to a good human being as I could be, I got all the promotions and all the hard to reach opportunities.

My career in the corporate world looked like it was entirely built by luck. It wasn’t. My corporate career was built on respect, honesty and treating people well because it makes sense in the long run.


10. The true meaning of startup buzzwords

Lean startup. Agile. Disruptive. Act like a startup. Minimum viable product.

We hear these words every day in the startup and tech world. Every corporate is trying to adopt them as their own. I didn’t see any of these buzzwords in my corporate career ever be used successfully.

Lean startup meant Throw seven figures at it and see if it swims. If not, kill it fast!”

Agile meant plan the next five years of a new product, try to deal with every possible situation in the beginning and invite some management consultants.

Act like a startup meant adopt the word but still be a corporate because a sizeable business always knows best.

Minimum viable product meant fix every customer pain point in existence and build the mother of all solutions that’s going to take years to build and leave all competitors for dead. Let’s not fix one thing when we can fix everything thus fixing nothing in the process.


So what can you learn from the corporate world?

It’s not all bad. Park my humor for just one second. You can learn plenty in the corporate world and it’s not all bad.

The corporate world can teach you:

1. Leadership fundamentals

2. Corporate decision-making

3. Community values

4. The rate of technology disruption

The corporate world in some ways shows you what the past looks like so you can build the future. It shows you that size does not necessarily mean better results or more improved solutions.

What I’ve outlined above comes from dealing with hundreds of corporates over the last seven years and the commonalities around how they think.


The grass is not greener.

The corporate world sure has its problems. So does the startup world. So does medium sized business as well.

All business just has a different set of problems to solve.

The way to deal with this conundrum is to become an expert problem solver who enjoys the challenge. It’s not always easy to do.

The business world can get you down and suck the life out of you.

That’s why you need to take a break and get some perspective. Try small, medium and big business for yourself and make your own assessment.

The grass may be longer, shorter or in need of a mow but it’s definitely not greener.
