These are notes I took while watching a T Harv Eker seminar online entitled “Passion and Profits.” These are Kim’s Notes, kind of like Coles Notes, but mine. Read on for key points and takeaways.
RK + RV + RY = SUCCESS
RK = Right Knowledge
RV = Right Vehicle (High demand, express who you are)
RY = Right You (beliefs, habits character)
RV is a big challenge. Like shoes, your business has to fit you. A good opportunity can be a bad fit for you. It’s very personal.
*Instead of looking outward, look within.
*Don’t figure it out, rather let it out.
Customers will feel your passion and enthusiasm when you truly connect with what you teach.
Passion + Purpose + Profits = getting RICH doing what you LOVE
Passion: who you really are, what you love to do comes from the heart. It’s not something you have to do, but it’s something you want to do, and something you believe in.
What do you love to do? Really think about it.
Remember: Passion ≠ Pleasure
Pleasure is short-term, transient
Brainstorm – ex: gardening, camping being in nature, storytelling, music, spirituality, learning, self-improvement
EVERYTHING IS ENERGY; ENERGY IS EVERYTHING
Passion is energy. It’s a high vibrational energy, like excitement. I need it to succeed.
Purpose: order in the universe. Everything has a purpose. Living in your purpose is the only way to be happy and successful.
Purpose of Life: 1) Add value to the planet for this generation, and all the generations that follow; 2) learn and grow; 3) LIVE! –> The obvious, and often overlooked purpose of life is to live and enjoy the journey.
Purpose is to give back to the world: service, other-focused, change lives around you. Feel good by giving.
THE FASTEST WAY TO FEEL GOOD IS TO GIVE
You CAN change your own beliefs. Beliefs are not right or wrong. Rather, beliefs are supportive, or unsupportive. Beliefs are empowering or disempowering.
WE ALL HAVE A PURPOSE IN LIFE
Purpose, knowing your purpose, and living in tune with your purpose is key for: meaning (Meaning gives us a WHY); fulfillment (living by your purpose); satisfaction (through giving and serving with a pure heart); deservedness (feel good about receiving by feeling good about giving – taps into reciprocity – when we help others, we feel worthy to receive); motivation (gives us the juice to take and maintain action)
What are you bringing to the table?
Purpose gives you power. You need to know why. You need to buy into the why to keep working.
That which doesn’t contribute is eliminated.
I AM NECESSARY, OR I WOULDN’T BE HERE
Your Mission Statement
Articulate your purpose. Clarity is power; it gives you the ability to do or act. Without it, you flounder.
**WRITE YOUR MISSION STATEMENT
Profit enables you to live your passion and purpose.
Money is good. Wealth is better because it enables you to contribute and give back on a larger scale.
POVERTY DOES NOT HELP ANYONE ELSE
POVERTY DOES NOT MAKE YOU MORE ENLIGHTENED
Vision = Passion + Purpose –> vehicle for delivering passion and purpose
Vision is a snapshot, or a mental movie. Vision gives you clarity and direction
- Vision should use natural talents and gifts because this will energize your spirit. Start with your natural talents. Not sure what your natural talents are? Think about what people have commented that you’re good at. What skills did you have in your youth? Etc.
- Vision must be BOLD. A bold vision will excite you and help you move past any doubts and limiting beliefs you may have. You want your goals to push you outside of your comfort zone. If your goals are too small, and you easily achieve them, you are not forcing yourself to grow. COMFORT IS THE KISS OF DEATH TO HIGH LEVELS OF SUCCESS –> You should be a little scared.
What would you do if you were guaranteed that you COULD NOT FAIL?
Now just freaking do it!
Utilize models. There are billions of people on earth. Some of them are doing what you want to do. Research them, and model them. Modelling is NOT copying.
Passion + Purpose + Profits = Happiness
Don’t waste your energy climbing a ladder that’s leaning against the wrong wall.
Direction and Motivation comes from the HEART.
TRUTH of PURPOSE comes from the HEART.
