Watch This For Breakfast And Never Procrastinate Again

Published

on

I don’t believe in the word “procrastination”… [t]here’s no such thing as procrastination, it’s just not that important to you. -Eric Thomas

If you’ve been following along with HYPR Magazine’s “Opinion/Perspective” column, then you’re already aware of the importance of our individual perceptions as well as the environments we immerse ourselves in. This week we bring to you a gem in perceptual change regarding procrastination, courtesy of motivational guru Eric Thomas.

A compilation video edited by Chispa Motivation uses a narration from Thomas as he addresses a young woman dealing with her habit of procrastinating. The narration is taken from a interview done on the Steve Harvey Show, (original video here). We recommend watching the edited video found below, as the visuals are quite impactful and relatable for anyone looking for motivation to get up and get their work done.

Video Below:

In what is perhaps the most important message of the entire video, Thomas approaches the concept of procrastination in the first 30 seconds. Thomas speaks to his disbelief of the concept noting that, if he were to offer someone $3 million to meet him the next day at 5 am, they would be there for 4:59 am. As the crowed laughs and agrees, he highlights that if this is the case, it’s not that we procrastinate, it’s that we don’t feel urgency, or whatever you’re putting off is not a priority in your life.

If we can direct this perception onto ourselves when it comes to completing a task or accomplishing a goal, we will find ourselves far more dedicated and disciplined. For example, the next time you’re on the treadmill and you’re feeling out of gas, winded, or exhausted, ask yourself, “if there was $3 million on the finish line for running an extra ten minutes, would I do it?” Chances are you would go all out.

This week’s takeaway:
Approach each of your assignments with the mindset, that if you were to complete the task it would lead you to at least $3 million. Who knows, by the time you finish, it just might.

Three Ways to Turn Social Media Followers Into Paying Customers

Published

on

As presented by Jobber, in Colony Work Space, Katie Pearse, owner of The Maid Mentor, spoke to an audience about how she was able to convert her social media followers into paying customers.

With a background in marketing, Katie graduated and went on to start her own multi-million dollar cleaning company. After experiencing much success, especially with garnering hype for her company through social media, she switched to consulting to help others do the same.

Jobber, a multifaceted entrepreneur software company, holds many different workshops for their clients and interested people in the community to attend. Key influencers of their respective industries will come out to speak about their experiences.

After listening to Katie, here are the top three takeaways to note:

  1. It doesn’t matter which social media platform you use as long as you target your audience. Know who you are trying to reach and who you’re catering your content towards.
  2. Email lists are everything. According to Katie, email marketing is still 40% more effective than other forms of marketing. So if you’re going to dedicate your time towards one thing, this is it.
  3. Video is an emerging trend. Most social media platforms either started with, or have now made it possible for you to post content through video. Making it easier for customers to view and understand your product, more companies are trying to maximize on this opportunity.

If you’d like to learn more about what Katie shared, you can follow her on Facebook, or reach out to her on her website.

The Video That Forever Changed My Life

Published

“Some of you love sleep, more than you love success.” -Eric Thomas

One night, 5 years ago I was feeling in need of some inspiration. I was stuck in a rut and I didn’t know where I was headed or what I wanted from my life. In the late moments of the night, I took to my Facebook and posted a status, “in need of some motivation and inspiration.” It was more of a statement than a request in my mind, but a casual acquaintance of mine from high school shared a link in the comments section.

The video showcased an unknown athlete working out with what seemed to be a rather rigorous routine. What caught my attention more than the impressive work ethic that was displayed of the athlete, was the voice of the narrator. This was the first time I ever heard Eric Thomas speak, and his words would forever change my life.

In the video, Thomas tells a story of a young man who aspires for great things. In pursuit of his goals, the young man seeks out a guru to teach him how to be successful. In what begins as a rather odd circumstance and continues on to be a confusing lesson, the moral of the story is both profound and impactful:

This week’s takeaway:
Everyone of us has a dream, but not nearly enough of us want it bad enough. Only when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath, will you be successful.
