Why the right actions mean sweet FA if you’re in the wrong energy

Highlights and Quotes from this video

“In many instances being in the right energy is way more important than the specific actions that you’re taking.”

“We can be chasing a goal. Chasing a desire. Taking all the right actions – on paper at least – but from resistance energy, from aggression energy, from forceful energy, for anxious energy, self destructive energy. And the result will not happen. It does not matter what actions you are taking.”

“You can have a business and you can be calling people all day every day to do business development activities. And you can have this, really great, perfect on paper script. But if your energy when you’re calling someone is not authentic. If your energy is not expansive and magnetic and if your energy doesn’t exude a certain passion for solving that person’s problems, you’re not going to get the result that you’re chasing.”

“When you’re in your really authentic energy, that’s when you are able to call in and magnetise what you desire effortlessly. Your kind of people. Your kind of friends, your kind of partner, your kind of clients you just drop in. You don’t have to search.”

“There is no area where the energy that you’re bringing does not have an impact on the outcome that you see.”

“You don’t have to be doing a million things, a day a hundred things a day, frantically checking through your to do list, thinking how can I do more more more! When you’re in the right energy, less is more.”

“I believe the secret to becoming a truly magnetic entrepreneur is identifying your authentic energy, nurturing it and ensuring the language you use to talk about your business matches it. You’ve got to make sure it’s really articulated and consistent in your actions and language.”

“The language that you use to talk about your business and what you believe in, what you stand for as a person and as a professional, are inextricably bound.”

“There’s so much value in getting genuinely interested in people. Not just pretend interested. Not just like hey, how’s it going, but genuinely interested. It’s such a worthwhile investment. Spend a few minutes really finding out how people are before you jump into whatever you want to jump in to. It might be a request, you might be sharing a business opportunity, sharing an investment opportunity, a date even. Whatever the context, it will pay off.”

“You might be single right now and you might be going on a different date every night. Or two dates every other night but you’re not getting anywhere. And you think to yourself, but I’m so great. I’ve got a great job. I’m funny and I’m witty. I like cool things. I dress nicely. Why is this not going anywhere? It’s usually because your energy is not there. What happens when you’re in your really authentic energy, when you’re in that energy that’s a really nice balance of being proactive, positive, grounded, balanced, that energy that’s most authentically you. That’s when you are able to call in and magnetise effortlessly. Your kind of people. Your kind of friends, your kind of partner, your kind of clients you just drop in. You don’t have to search. You don’t have to be doing a million things, a day a hundred things a day, frantically checking through your to do list, thinking how can I do more more more! When you’re in the right energy, less is more. You can go on one perfect date and end up in a relationship with that person for the rest of your life. You can go for one interview and secure that perfect dream job. You can meet one prospect for five minutes and end up with a dream client without even trying. You can do that one work out, from really great energy and it can have a way more profound effect on fat-burning and on your strength than a workout done from survival energy, from that energy where you’re working out because you hate your body or you’re stressed as hell. There is no area where the energy that you’re bringing does not have an impact on the outcome that you see.”

A Bugbear

a bugbear

When people admit they spent years doing something they hated, it grinds my gears. How can you expect your clients to have full confidence in you, to believe you’ve got winner DNA, if you didn’t stand by your convictions and leave a job you hated straight away? Leaving a job you love for something even greater – that’s courage.

Be A Simplifier In A Sea Of Over-Complicators

Sometimes we over complicate things needlessly. In work, in life, in love. In reality, simplicity is beauty, and far more memorable. More likely than not, you’ll be remembered more for that hilarious one liner, exquisitely crafted tagline, or powerfully succinct one pager, than for that 30 page report. Go against the grain and stand out powerfully by being a simplifier in a sea of over-complicators.

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” – Steve Jobs. Sometimes simple takes longer (notably in engineering), but not always. Radical simplification can actually make life a lot more efficient.

The art of simplification also ties in with the concept of essentialism, of which I’m a huge fan, inspired in part by Greg McKeown’s book “Essentialism”. Essentialism is all about “the disciplined pursuit of less”, something I’ve been striving for since 2012. In McKeown’s words, “the way of the Essentialist involves doing less, but better, so you can make the highest possible contribution. Essentialism isn’t one more thing; it’s a different way of doing everything. It is a discipline you apply constantly, effortlessly. Essentialism is a mindset; a way of life.

This brochure stand (which I passed walking near Senate House in London) is a great example of the effects of applying an essentialist mindset to reach the simplest possible outcome. And it works right? How many times do you walk by a brochure stand and actually want to pick a brochure up? Would you be more likely to pick one up from here?
