Achieving Success Through Meditation & Higher Consciousness – Deepak Chopra

Joel Brown (Founder of Addicted2Success.com)

Published

Deepak Chopra Meditate for Success

This is a post I am uber excited to share with you.

I was up nice and early at 2am Perth, Western Australia time this morning to chat with the amazing spiritual thought leader and best selling author Dr. Deepak Chopra to find out how Entrepreneurs can take advantage of meditation and tap into a higher consciousness for success.

Deepak shared a lot of step by step advice for entrepreneurs who are ready to start taking action for a more healthier and balanced life to handle each day with energy and high levels of productivity.

 

Here are some of the takeaways from this podcast Interview with Deepak.

 

1. Advice for Entrepreneurs that are working 80+ hours a week:

Over working and lack of sleep will only decrease your ability to be productive or creative.

Meditation increases the amount of rest you would normally achieve through sleep and is almost twice as effective, even 20 minutes of meditation.

Meditation is a highly effective way to get rest, to be more creative, to have healthier relationships and better sleep and to enjoy your restful and reflective mind.

 

2. Deepak’s recommends his S.M.A.R.T goal system to follow:

Stretch for more than you can reach

Make everything measurable

Agreements from your team and supporters

Record your progress

Time limits

 

3. Deepak Chopra‘s Definition of Success

Success is to have love and compassion and to have the ability to get in touch with the creative centre that is inside of you which is your own spirit.

 

4. What we should remember

Be happy, don’t worry.

Life is a journey, enjoy yourself and nobody regrets working hard enough at the end of their life.

    Thanks Joel, for the great article!

    I just learned a new meditation technique from my latest book I’m reading: The Unbeatable Mind.

    It’s called the Fishbowl Technique. How it works is we picture our heads as a fishbowl, and every successful breath we have without letting the mind wander is clearing and filtering the fishbowl. If we lose track, we go back to counting from 1. Each thought clouds up the fishbowl, so we need to reach the sparkly, spring water state of mind 🙂

How To Relentlessly Live In Your Potential – Ben Kelly

Joel Brown (Founder of Addicted2Success.com)

Published

on

Ben Kelly

Millionaire Entrepreneur, Speaker, Trainer and Investor Ben Kelly shares his principles with you for Rapid Transformation.

Ben Kelly was a financially crippled bricklayer with large debt along with a debilitating mindset and low self worth as he struggled for purpose with a feeling of very little hope of a better life.

However, Ben managed to turn that around in 2 short years through a strong desire to learn, grow and apply all that he learned in facing his fears and identity attachments that held him back.

Ben leads a movement of thousands around the world, speaking to large groups throughout Australia, the US, the UK and Asia sharing the lessons he has learned and the process that helped him to go from a depressed bricklayer unable to voice himself to being able to confidently speak to thousands on how life can change in a moment with a strong growth mindset and a willingness to leave behind what is not in service to your greater self.

His successful network marketing business has allowed him, along with his sister Peta to retire their single mother of four “Christine” and alleviate all of her financial burden. Ben loves travelling the world to lead people to their own empowerment, growth and expansion so they can step into greater expressed versions of themselves.

Success Advice

Stop Replying To Everyone.

Published

on

Image Credit: Unsplash

Many of you are running around like mad trying to manage your time. You’re reading productivity hacks, taking cold showers and waking up at 5 am.

You’re doing all of this because you want more time to do what you love.

Let me hit you in the face with one technique that has allowed me to win back time, so I can do what I love.

Stop replying to everyone…

You get emails asking you to do stuff.
You get asked to do an intro.
You get asked to speak at an event for free about your area of expertise.

Here’s the problem:
YOU KEEP RESPONDING TO EVERY REQUEST OF YOUR TIME.


What’s the answer?

The answer is really simple like everything I write. Are you ready?
Stop replying to everyone.

I learned this technique the hard way. When I was looking to interview entrepreneurs in 2014 about their story and share it in the form of a blog post, I didn’t get many replies.

I’d email very successful people who have achieved the impossible and get nothing.

Radio silence.
Donuts.


Why don’t your idols respond to requests for their time?

There’s many reasons.

  1. They have too many requests and could never humanly answer every single one.
  2. They have limited time and can’t fit everybody into their schedule.

The second reason is the most important. Your idols don’t respond because that’s their way of saying no.


No response is the best response.

By responding to every request of your time, you go down the rabbit hole of endless back and forth conversations.

Let me illustrate this point with a short story.

A US startup approached me on LinkedIn and asked me to advise them on their social media strategy. They offered me equity in return for my expertise.

The product was not something that aligned with who I am, and I was heading off to Europe on holidays and had no time to draft a proper reply.

I sent no response to their request.
They messaged me a second time.
I sent no response to their request.

Then, I got sucked into responding. I felt my moral compass telling me to reply and tell them no. On top of that, the startup had a very well known person in the social media industry join them. FOMO kicked in.

I replied and that’s where everything went wrong.

Once I replied to the request I got daily reminders and emails with pitch decks trying to convince me why they were the one startup who could beat Instagram. The claims of how much traction they had got more and more ridiculous.

“Eventually, a simple request of my time turned into a daily debate”

They wouldn’t leave me alone. I began to regret my stupidity for responding in the first place.

If a request of your time doesn’t resonate with you, and you don’t feel like saying “Fuck Yes” when presented with an opportunity, say NO.

Don’t be tempted by a request of your time. 
Say no.


Not replying is what works.

People generally give up after one email or direct message asking for your time. I’ve tested this theory a lot and it has almost always turned out to be true.

As soon as you reply, you become like a lawyer in the High Court trying to defend someone who is accused of murder. Your time is yours. You only get one life.

“You don’t need to justify yourself, your time, or your goals to anybody”

YOU HEAR ME? NOBODY!

The way you win back time and make room for what’s important to you is to fight the temptation to reply to every request that comes your way.

Quit giving away your time like free balloons at a car expo.


You end up making up lies.

The problem with replying to every request of your time is you can end up making up lies to get out of doing something. Or you may end up exaggerating or putting forward excuses that aren’t entirely true.

This causes even more problems for you because if the requester knows people within your network, they may find out you’re not being honest.

Why construct a grand plan that takes more of your time to respond to a request?

It’s easier to say nothing at all.


Silence says it all.

Smart people who ask you for stuff will know that after a week, if you haven’t responded, you’re probably not interested.

Silence is the best response. After all, if someone really wants you to do something they’ll chase you, they’ll follow you up and they may get a mutual connection to intro them to you.

Many pitches and requests are poorly written or incredibly selfish.

Fight back with silence. Don’t reply. Stop replying.


You’re not missing anything.

The temptation to respond can also be caused by the fear that you’re missing out.

Maybe someone is contacting you to fund your idea.
Maybe something you wrote is going to be published in the New York Times.
Maybe the request will lead you to direct a Hollywood Movie.

All of these false ideas are what’s causing you to respond to everybody.You’re worried you could miss the jackpot or your lucky break.

The harsh truth is that these opportunities are earned through hard work.Genuine opportunities that will excite you are clearly articulated and your gut feeling will guide you better than you think.

You’re not going to miss out on winning an Oscar for a movie you made because you didn’t reply to an email”


Not replying isn’t rude.

We feel we must reply to every request of our time. We have a fear that we will be accused of being rude.

This belief is false also. There’s nothing rude about not replying. We all get lots of emails and messages online and we can’t answer them all. People will understand when you don’t reply. If they don’t understand then that’s a problem with them, not you.

Don’t feel you have to reply out of politeness.
