Olympics Special Offer!

Hiya,

Now I was planning on boycotting the Olympics as a point of principle over the Beijing Games. 4 Years ago our news channels and papers were full of stories of the Chinese government bulldozing people’s homes with just a few days notice in order to make way for road widening on route to the main stadium. No compensation was paid even though China is the richest country in the world, and those that refused were removed with excessive force.

I wondered why participating countries didn’t raise questions about it – everybody seemed more interested in the games than the lives it had adversely affected.

Well, I’ve had my confidence restored with these games – GB really has created a fantastic event for all involved and have raised the benchmark for all that follow. A huge community spirit has permeated the country and so far, with the exception of the odd flag problem, it’s gone without a hitch.

For that reason, and to celebrate the incredible achievement of our British athletes, I’m doing a special offer on my book – 2 for 1.

Yes, all books bought from now until the end of the closing ceremony will receive a free extra copy to give away as a gift. The recipient of that gift will also be eligible to register for my 90 Day Home Study Program: ‘Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life‘ at no charge.

This offer only applies to sales in Great Britain!

Enjoy

Take the opportunity today to teach.

Hiya,

On page 246 of my book I talk about ‘learning’, today I suggest you
consider teaching. The reason is that through teaching we can actually
increase our own learning. We get to see the subject in finer detail.

Take the martial arts for example, when you attain black belt status
you are considered a teacher. What this actually means is you are
ready to really learn. The great martial arts masters knew that
through teaching their techniques they were able to hone them over and
over. Their techniques improved through the process of teaching. As
each new student asked ‘how’ a certain technique was implemented the
master had to drill down into greater and greater detail in order to
help the student understand. By doing this the master noticed in
greater detail what he actually did to implement the technique.

You don’t need to be a complete expert either before you start
teaching. If you have something to share, start there. As you teach it
to others your own understanding will deepen and before too long you
will become an expert. Become the black belt in your chosen field by
teaching others what you know. Be generous and show them everything
and remember, their questions will help to teach you in the process.

I read somewhere that if we hear something we retain approx 5% of the
information, if we see and hear we retain up to 20%, if we see, hear
and do we retain up to 50%, but if we teach we retain up to 90% of the
information. Teaching really is the way to learn!

Enjoy
