Raps Kanye in his track, Stronger.
Sampling Daft Punk’s, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.
In my ears they’re both preaching personal development.
A craft that is easily confused with a motivational speech.
Cool sounding TED talk.
Podcast. Inspirational tweet.
Is REALLY about getting harder, better, faster, stronger.
Isn’t This What We Want?
How many of us strive to be—
How many of us pick up a self-help book for fun?
Watch an inspirational video or podcast coz we can’t think of anything better to do?
We do it because we’re looking for more in our lives.
Yet, how do we?
Get beyond the noise and actually get harder, better, faster, stronger?
Back To The Old School
To learn the best ideas in personal development you must look back hundreds and thousands of years…
To the creators of today’s mostly repackaged ideas.
The old-school generation of personal development advanced the ball far more before typewriters than…
The Internet marketers of today even try.
Orison Swett Marden’s 640 page Pushing To The Front, published in 1894, being a prime example.
Whereas the new age is mostly repackaged ideas for the new generation.
Meaning, one massive thing is missing.
Doing The Works
We live in a soundbite, magic pill culture.
Where hacks spew hacks and Internet marketers regurgitate it.
If you sit in your living room and imagine your most amazing life…
It will happen.
Is more or less the message of most the new age, law of attraction crowd.
Parroting tech from old school giants like Napoleon Hill and Wallace Wattles…
They left out the Master Key, as Charles Haanel calls it.
That’s not dreaming of the life you want.
It’s like the Catholics used to preach—doing the works.
One Fatal Flaw
Hundreds of magic pills we only get more addicted.
Thousands of diet books we only get fatter.
Millions pages of self-help books we need more and more help.
Having spent a decade or so pouring through such books it took me a long time to see why.
One fatal flaw.
They’re full of it.
Words. Words. Words.
But little you can actually do with them.
And worse, the same words repeated over and over and over again.
The same old basic stuff.
Like self-help for an 8 year old tying their shoes.
Inspiration for the far-too-distracted-to-actually-do-anything social media crowd.
Age Of Pseudo Profound Nonsense
Personal development was long ago taken over by marketers.
Then by Internet marketers.
When you’ve got distribution and a hungry audience, just about any ideas will do.
Hustle hustle hustle. Hack this. Hack that.
Everyone’s a self-help expert these days.
With their little inspiration quotes.
3.5 minutes of meditation.
Pictures on Instagram saying you can do it.
Yes, you can do it, but few ever teach us how.
Teaching Us How
That was most missing for me.
When I realized I’d learned a lot on personal development.
I could quote Emerson with the best of them.
But, well, when it came to tackling the hardest goal of my life…
I couldn’t do it.
I needed more than good sounding ideas.
Thousands of pages of ideas I’d written from thousands of books.
That might help you pass an exam regurgitating other people’s ideas.
But I needed to actually get…
Harder Better Faster Stronger
In hunting down the REAL experts of personal development I saw what it takes.
And learned actual skills for transforming your mind.
Working back through thousands of books I could see plenty of answers were there.
Hidden between the filler, in developing practices that actually make you…
Harder, better, faster, stronger.
Over some two decades now I’ve build the best methods I can.
For transforming your mind.
Transforming your life.
Simple and powerful ideas you can put to work right away.
And keep honing to get harder, better, faster, stronger.
I’ve brought it together in this power packed Masterclass for Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger:
