The Best Investment: A Better You by Vinnie Fisher

This is a book everyone should read. If you don’t make yourself the number one priority, then nothing else will follow, and if you ignore your needs you could hit burnout, and lose the choices of what you want for your future.

A better you will be equipped for success, meaningful relationships, and helping others. A better you opens you up to opportunities, not obstacles.

 
 

Information Product Launch Secrets:: How To Create and Sell Quality Information Products and Software then Flip Them for even Larger Profits by Paul Nagel

I liked the honesty at the start of this book. The only way the top product launchers are so successful is because of their contacts, who share their enormous email lists. Forget all their promises, stick with reality, and read this guide to making money quickly. This practical information includes a case-study where the author created a book in one day which brought in over $7000 in around a week.

 
 

Break The System: Escape the Rat Race, Start a Business, Travel the World by Grant Weherley

Having an internet connection has allowed anyone with an adventurous spirit to travel, live the life of their dreams, and support themselves in creative ways. The author supplies a step by step guide on how to grow and scale a business to make more than you earn now… while working less.

That’s a tempting offer, and one they can prove works for them. It could work for you, too – and this book shows how to start from nothing, no matter what your circumstances are.

 
 

As an entrepreneur you need motivation to help you keep focused on your goals, and my Kindle eBook “Motivational Quotes For Entrepreneurs: Inspire Your Way To Success” is a unique, interactive answer. There are 234 specially selected quotes to suit your situation – and your mood – with 3 different categories to choose from for each subject.

“As anyone who is an entrepreneur knows, it is a tough journey and sometimes it can be downright HARD to stay motivated, especially if you’re not seeing the success you’re hoping for. This book is filled with TONS of great motivational quotes to keep me inspired and focused to achieve my dreams as an entrepreneur!” – Katrina Abiasi, Amazon, US.

Entrepreneurs Need to Check For Symptoms of Stress

symptoms of stress

This diagram comes from The American Institute of Stress and that link will take you to a list of 50 common signs and symptoms of stress.

When you catch these signs early you can prevent stress causing serious illnesses, which could prevent you from doing the work you love. It’s important to monitor how you feel, and when your body starts to feel tension, take time out to switch off.

Prevention is always easier, and much less painful, than trying to find a cure, which can prove elusive. Fit regular breaks into your day. Even 5 minutes every hour to do some slow stretches, and deep breathing, will benefit you enormously. Slow, deep breaths from your diaphragm will calm you down, and re-energize you.

You will find that you can think more clearly after you have taken these breaks. If you’re telling yourself you’re too busy to stop – your body will find a way to stop you – then you’ll have no choice but to make changes to your lifestyle.

It is stressful being an entrepreneur, especially when you’re starting up. There are so many balls to keep juggling in the air, but you have to learn it’s OK if you drop one sometimes. Find ways that suit you to take the pressure off, and build in relaxation to your routine, because without your health you won’t be able to follow your dreams and goals.

I recommend Linda at A-ZPoint, who uses the ZPoint Process to help you let go of everything that is causing you stress. She has a short and simple Kindle eBook which includes a recording of a full ZPoint session for only $4.99. If you listen to this every night, and dump everything that stressed you during the day, you’ll wake up with a clear mind ready to enjoy work again.

If you go to bed and can’t sleep because your problems and concerns are chasing around your head – give it a try. You’ll find your stress fades away effortlessly, and the more you use it the sooner you’ll find you’re deeply relaxed with not a care in the world. Answers to problems will come to you easily, because all your unconscious thoughts are quietened down, bringing you complete peace.

After stress stopped me in my tracks, I know that stress management is my biggest priority, and now I’m much calmer and able to cope with everything life throws my way. I would like you to feel this good before stress takes hold – you will be amazed how much it’s possible to change your life for the better.

When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless, and reason is powerless.

— Herophiles

Constant Struggle Does Not Lead to Success

businessmen in race

If you think being an entrepreneur means you have to constantly struggle, and fight one race after another – you’d better give up now.

You won’t reach your goal any faster, and battling every day causes more businesses to fail, simply because it’s impossible to maintain that level of effort.

You will see quotes like:

I’ve found I’m never more alive than when I’m pushing and I’m in pain, struggling for high achievement

– Dean Karnazes
 

To consistently push yourself to be in pain is living with enormous stress, and asking for a heart attack. Nobody can work like that, be happy and healthy, and have a contented home life balance.

It’s considered macho by some to be seen to be always busy and striving. I can promise you that people who act like that are less productive, and less creative. You can’t come up with fresh ideas, and the right solutions, when your mind is crammed full of things that should have been done an hour ago.

Until you know how to stop, and still all those racing thoughts, you are missing out on the secrets to true success that people like Richard Branson have cultivated. He knows that taking time out to have fun, and find enjoyable ways to run his businesses, adds more to his profits than running round like you’re on fire ever will.

When you’re always on the go, you miss more than you will ever find. Being able to notice, and appreciate the simplest things that are in front of you, right now, will change your perspective, and bring amazing results.
 

Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet.

– Jeremy Bentham
 

Putting yourself under pressure is risking your health, and struggling is not a badge of honor. Not only will you achieve more with a balanced approach, you will enjoy the journey so much more too.

If You Want To Achieve More – Stop Being Busy!

overwhelmed entrepreneur

I joined a large national company as a young trainee, and I worked extremely hard to prove myself. When I became assistant manager, I also covered for the manager when he was on holiday, insisting I didn’t need a replacement. Not only would I do 2 stressful jobs with long hours for 2 weeks at a time, I also looked for extra tasks to complete.

I was so driven, and so wrapped up in being seen to be the best in the country (which I was), that I ultimately hit the brick wall where I physically couldn’t get out of bed, never mind work. Winning competitions, including those I created for myself, were meaningless without being fit and healthy.

Now I tell everyone to stop, and breathe. If more people made regular stops during their day, they would be able to let go of stress as it happens, instead of leaving it to build up. You can’t ignore stress – it doesn’t let you.

There have been many scientific studies of the brain, and it shows changes even for your thoughts and feelings. The brain simply can’t cope with constantly being busy, it will become overwhelmed and shut your body down. It needs time to rest, recuperate, and restore itself in order to perform optimally.

This post shows how to manage your stress for success – choose to deal with stress now, before your choices are taken away.
http://www.entrepreneur-success.com/stress-free-balanced-entrepreneur

Read the excellent post by Jessica Stillman below, which includes this quote from a Scientific American article “Why Your Brain Needs More Downtime.”:

Many important mental processes seem to require what we call downtime and other forms of rest during the day. Downtime replenishes the brain’s stores of attention and motivation, encourages productivity and creativity, and is essential to both achieve our highest levels of performance and simply form stable memories in everyday life.

How To Be A Balanced Entrepreneur By The Dalai Lama

Meditating

These views of the Dalai Lama describe where so many go wrong, and if you take note you could take avoidance measures, and plan a balanced life instead.

You don’t have to become a Buddhist to change old habits and learn how to create balance. But it’s essential that you take steps to prevent the Dalai Lama’s observations from coming true for you.
 

Man surprised me most about humanity.
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die,
and then dies having never really lived.

– Dalai Lama XIV
 

There are far too many who discover too late that overwork causes health problems – and often money isn’t enough to restore your previous good health. Unless you’re fit and healthy you can’t benefit from all the opportunities that money brings, so if you find you’re looking at working overtime for the second week in a row – say “No!”

Don’t rush through your days, and miss out on the happiness that exists in the present moment. Stop, and take a deep, slow breath often to appreciate what you already have – here and now. Eat regular, unprocessed meals – not junk food snatched on the run.

When your sights are always focused ahead on your goal, you just fill your life with unnecessary stress. Keep your life stress-free, and you’ll be able to fully enjoy all the rewards that come with success.

How To Be A Stress-Free And Balanced Entrepreneur

New Years Eve Big Ben

Once you’ve counted down the minutes to midnight, and enjoyed the firework display, it’s common at this time of year to make resolutions. But most of them don’t last into February. The reason for this is because it’s not easy to change the habits you’ve become comfortable with.

This post isn’t about the easy way to escape to a desert island . . . it’s about how to create that feeling inside you. When you can master your feelings and emotions you can create any experience you want – wherever you are – even stuck in traffic when you’re running late.

You don’t have to wait for those precious 2 weeks of holiday to relax, and leave your stress behind . . . and you know you lose a week of that anyway, because it takes a few days to unwind, then another few days to dread having to return and face it all again.

I’ve mentioned before how beneficial ZPoint is for stress management, and this post describes how to create new habits that will last throughout 2014:

http://www.a-zpoint.info/1/post/2013/12/assess-accept-and-appreciate.html

1) Assess – You learn how to assess the past calmly, and let it go as you relax with the Process.

2) Accept – Instead of getting angry and casting blame, this step allows you to face up to every challenge that comes along. Once you’re able to stop reacting emotionally, you gain control and clarity to make rational and effective decisions.

3) Appreciate – When you release stress regularly you can focus on the present, and this gives you the opportunity to be more observant and find the small everyday things that you appreciate. Once you get into this frame of mind it doesn’t leave room for problems, and you will enjoy your life so much more.

How To Prevent Fear Of Failure Blocking Your Success

man in despair from failure

When you accept that fear of the unknown is normal, it takes the pressure off so you can view it from a different perspective. Everyone feels fear at some level when they try something new, and it’s down to each individual to find a way of breaking through, instead of allowing stress to build up.

You can’t ignore your feelings of fear – they won’t go away on their own, because they’re valid and real. The ZPoint Process is a quick and easy way to address each of your concerns. You simply dump them, and listen to clearing rounds which communicate directly with your unconscious. You don’t have to do anything, just let the words wash over you, and you will gradually relax and become calm. You will gain the benefits of meditation, without any effort, and you will find your fears have faded away.

Once you’ve faced up to them, they won’t return, and while you’re in the relaxed state you can visualize the successful result of your new venture, and make it feel real as though it has already happened. You get double the results, and you know that you can use this method for any new fear that appears in future. Once you know you can control your emotions, the sting is removed, and you won’t ever become overwhelmed by stress.

Stress management is essential for good health and a clear mind to achieve success. Try ZPoint and see the difference bringing balance into your life makes. You can send for a short and simple introductory eBook on the A – ZPoint blog, which includes a download for a full ZPoint session.

Here are a few blog posts that will help you overcome fear of failure:

http://www.a-zpoint.info/1/post/2012/11/zpoint-can-help-you-overcome-the-freezing-effect-of-fear.html

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.

– Jim Morrison

http://www.a-zpoint.info/1/post/2013/04/how-to-leave-fear-in-the-past-love-your-future.html

Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.

– Charles Stanley

Icelandic Entrepreneur Has Solution To World’s Water Shortages

Glass Of Water

Aqua Omnis ehf of Reykjavik, Iceland, wants to transport their abundant supplies of high-quality spring water in supertankers to areas of the world that are in desperate need. Managing Director, Thorsteinn Gudnason, said “Iceland has vast amounts of spring water naturally filtered by mountains and lava terrain for hundreds of years that otherwise goes to waste.”

The United Nations say by 2030 almost half the Earth’s population may face water scarcity.

Funding is in place for the company to start operating commercially within 3 years. The water is drinkable without requiring treatment, which reduces a lot of costs.

This is an excellent way to use natural resources to solve one of the major problems in deprived countries, without causing further concerns for the environment. Clean water is essential to good health, so this project is a major breakthrough.
