    How To Achieve Freedom Without Selling Your Business

    How To Achieve Freedom Without Selling Your Business

    Many see the exit from their businesses as the chance to achieve freedom, but as Nick explains in this week's edition of wisdom, there may be another way to get there without selling your business...

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 


    Kiyosaki's Quadrant Of Freedom involves: E - Employee, S - Self-Employed, B - Business Owner, I - Investor.
    If you are working in a business, the first thing you can do change your trajectory is to become a manager. This gives you a slightly increased freedom. The next rung to climb is to an executive position.
    The number one reason for a business failing to sell, is that the seller gets cold feet right at the very end. If you have planned in advance, and have had the exit in mind the whole time, then it removes the emotional connection at this crucial time.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Freedom can be achieved in different ways'

    'You can start to see where that first tranche of freedom can become available to you'

    'When you become a business owner, you become the owner of a system'

    'The way to become a great CEO is to make sure you're not doing any of the work'

    Dr Alok Trivedi On Rewiring Your Brain To Get Results

    Dr Alok Trivedi On Rewiring Your Brain To Get Results

    Dr Alok Trivedi, aka Dr Rewire, is the founder of on of 2021 Inc. 5000's fastest-growing companies, Aligned Performance Institute, and the author of Amazon Prime best-seliing book,, "Chasing Success: Lessons In Aligned Performance".

    Dr Trivedi joins Nick this week, to discuss 92 actionable, scientifically-proven, and most importantly practical ways in which you can rewire your brain into working more efficiently, improving the quality of your life, your business and your relationships.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Personal issues, despite our best efforts, can negatively impact our business performance. Not just do they encroach on our decision-making abilities when we need them, they also affect our literal physicality.
    Life is a mirror when it comes to emotional response. In business, when it comes to teams, they will feel a mirror of the way that you feel, and vice versa.
    Often, those in positions of success and power are under far more pressure than those whose businesses may be failing. It is success that grows pressure and chaos in life. The great ones are those who recognise this and handle it.
    If you do not find the root cause of trauma and deal with it there, then you are doomed to repeat the fallout again and again in life.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'The physicality comes through from the emotional experience'

    'I knew that the mind-body connection was real'

    'I'm not into conflict resolution, I'm into conflict evolution'

    'It's the success that breeds the chaos, not the failure'

    How I Work & How You Can Work With Me

    How I Work & How You Can Work With Me

    This week, Nick is in reflective mode, as he talks extensively about the way he works, who specifically he aims to help through his work, and the ways in which this is achieved.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Working on business owner should never be just about the skill set. It should also provide clarity about their belief system and mindset.
    You can always evolve, grow and diversify your investment portfolio, but it's far better to focus on your own lane - your own area of expertise.
    When it comes to coaching, it's not so much about providing answers that didn't exist before. It's about encouraging the answers to come from within, where they have always been.
    Exits are not centred around time, but centred around the result. Brokers and banks are only there for the actual exit. They want the deal done, more than they want the best deal for you.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'It's important when I work with someone to be able to work on them, to change and improve and challenge their belief systems'

    'I'm an investor in small business acquisitions'

    'You need someone else who can help you get to the answer'

    'This is not time based. This is outcome based'

    Dan Millman On Spirituality In The Modern World

    Dan Millman On Spirituality In The Modern World

    Dan Millman is a former world champion athlete, university coach, martial arts instructor, and college professor. After an intensive, twenty-year spiritual quest, Dan’s teaching found its form as the Peaceful Warrior’s Way. His work continues to evolve over time to meet the needs of a changing world.

    Dan’s eighteen books, including Way of the Peaceful Warrior, have inspired and informed millions of readers in 29 languages worldwide. The feature film “Peaceful Warrior” was adapted from Dan’s first book, based upon incidents from his life.

    Dan joins Nick to talk about what sparked his incredible journey, mentorship and how he chose the mentors in his own life, what spirituality actually is, and details about his latest incredible book.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    When we find a state of flow, overcoming challenge becomes more relaxed, although it still requires effort on our part. We accept obstacles as more simplified
    Breakthroughs come in the tailwind of challenge. The greatest lessons learned are the ones that come following a period of struggle and reflection.
    People love travelling because it forces them to see the world in an all-new way - the same way that a child sees their environment. we need to embrace the beauty in everything.
    We never outgrow our teachers, we simply recognise when our paths diverge from those we have followed.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'The arena of what I call The Peaceful Warrior way is everyday life for all of us'

    'Trying implies tension, which makes everything harder'

    'You don't really fail at anything unless you give up on it'

    'Spirituality gets tricky after a while. We can bring spirit to our everyday life'

    Decision Fatigue

    Decision Fatigue

    We can definitely become tired from having to make too many decisions. In fact, the more choices we have to make can negatively affect our energy reserves. In this episode, Nick talks you through the concept itself, and offers actionable ways in which you can prevent it from impacting you.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Decision fatigue is compounded by the fact that we often have too many things going on. If we have too much choice, it can leave us paralysed and then impact our ability to make decisions.
    Our brains only have a limited store of energy. When we make decisions, this energy depletes, thereby negatively impacting our ability to effectively operate.
    Plan daily decisions the night before. This means that when you wake up refresh in the morning, half of your brain's work is done ahead of time.
    Stop making decisions, and think in terms of commitments. Rather than hoping you'll make the right choice each day, simply commit to the larger aims.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'It can impact our ability to make high quality decisions'

    'Your willpower is like a muscle'

    'There are more and more things thrown at us all the time. We have to shut them out in order to make space to make decisions'

    'I want you to simplify all the things you're look at so that you can make higher quality decisions'

    https://scaleupyourbusiness.clickfunnels.com/time-to-thrive-2022

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    The knowledge you accumulate is invaluable to the people following in your footsteps. Nothing is more precious than knowledge.
    It's far better to arrive at the end of your life with no regrets, having achieved everything you wanted to, than to spend time worrying about what others might think of us.
    When you find the purpose that lights you up more than ay other, it spurs you on, pushes you higher, accelerates your desire to reach that goal.
    Whatever you go through, whatever you experience, whatever obstacles you face in life, they all provide learnings and gifts. Sometimes the value doesn't present itself until much later, but time will allow you to recognise eventually.

    BEST MOMENTS 

    'There's nothing more powerful than the right message delivered at the right moment to the right person'

    'What's worse, a friend thinking you're crazy or the end of your life seeing a video of the person you could have been?'

    'Somebody else is starting off where you used to be'
