This might just be the best five minutes you will spend all week. Though it all depends on your perspective and your ability to learn and keep an open mind.
I can honestly say that in the two years since I started on a path of personal growth that there is one person who has inspired me more than any other, not in a way that is dream-it-believe-it-do-what-I-say-or-else-you-won’t-succeed-over-the-top inspiration, but simply continuous, daily motivation, education, learning and support.
And I’ve never even met him.
That person is Darren Hardy, the publisher of Success Magazine and a couple of books including The Compound Effect ,(the first real personal growth book I ever really took to heart). Without giving you too much background, because you have to find your own reason and WHY to believe this to be a benefit for you, Hardy is the real deal – offering no-nonsense advice, the support of a ton of writers in his magazine and a CD which comes FREE in every issue of Success, which includes interviews with people whose advice, perspective and dedication can change your life.
He has also started offering a Darren Daily video/audio for free, and some of those now support his newest book, The Entrepreneur Rollercoaster: Why Now is the Time to Join the Ride. Just yesterday he offered up a video which as he states will “light the fire within you”. It’s actually a sketch-drawing with narration. I would encourage you to take a peek at the 2 minute video. What’s the worst that can happen? You might even learn something:
If you are on the Rollercoaster Ride there is one thing I believe that will keep you on the track, no matter what. It’s the same message I wrote in a note to my daughters yesterday, the one thought I asked they always hold with them, which will get them through life, regardless of what challenges it throws in their path. That one thing – is love – how much my wife and I love them and will always do so, no matter what. Thanks to my teen and pre-teen girls I have also rejoined the ranks of those who get a charge out of pop music, (at least most of the songs), and think the lyrics to this next YouTube video by One Republic is a perfect companion to the Hardy video, because if you realize this about love, you will be unstoppable in business and in life.
So in advance of this last video let me say, until next time thanks for taking the time.
