Do you ever run across something that totally blows your mind? That two days later you can't stop thinking about it. And you keep reading as much as you can about it? Because it has given you so much clarity in life, about yourself - why you succeed in some places and get stuck in others?
Oh my gosh!!! I'm seriously about to burst out of my seams here... from excitement, not because my pants are too tight. HA HA! Ok here's the story. The other night I was not feeling well at all. The in bed by 6:50pm kind of not feeling well. But I couldn't sleep, so I decided to peruse my Nook for something very easy to read to distract myself from feeling like crap. I downloaded a couple cheap fiction samples and then ran across this book how to become a millionaire. Normally this would not my thing at all, but for whatever reason I clicked on the description and it talked about finding your "type" in order to be successful. Well, though I may not gravitate toward millionaire books, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE little surveys where I can learn more about myself. So I downloaded the free sample. About 10 pages in, I was totally hooked on his story. But it said before going further I had to use the access code in the front flap of the book to take the survey, then I could learn about my type - which helped me none, since I didn't have a hard cover book. So I went on to find a fiction book that kept me occupied and entertained. Clearly only the beginning of my story...
The next day, feeling better enough, I was still so intrigued by this book so I looked it up online to order a hard copy. And to my delight I found you can now take the test for free at his website. So long story short - I took the test for free, then spent the next couple of hours watching all six of his free videos - and have since been having insight after insight and idea after idea to the point of where I am about to burst with excitement!!! And I haven't even read the book yet! I did download on my Nook and plan to read it this weekend.
Here is the gist... this guy has come up with four types and descriptions of those types, how they work together, leadership attributes of each, strengths and limitations... yada, yada, yada. Which I realize sounds like a lot of other popular assessments I have taken before, but for whatever reason this is different. For starters it is specifically for entrepreneurs - which I am - but you wouldn't have to be. It helped me see in a couple of hours what I have missed for 20 years of my career. I could clearly see why certain jobs worked and others didn't. Some of these things I knew intuitively, but I didn't have the framework to put my finger on it. Others I am just seeing now. It also helped me see clearly where my husband is and how we could communicate better and solve a few things in our household regarding chores and finances in a different way, that neither of is good at. And it helped to see why - so we can stop being frustrated or blaming the other and just figure out a better solution. And I now see VERY clearly why certain things work in my business now - and why I keep banging my head against the wall in other areas. SERIOUSLY!!! What an empowering thing!!! His whole thing is that no one fails because they are a failure - you just need to understand yourself, and then get the right people or resources around you - and in the right order - and then know how to communicate, etc. More than anything else I have this feeling of not needing to beat myself up for not being good at certain things and what I need to put in place to be successful instead. Which is a very big deal.
Beyond myself though I see implications for weight loss. For how - based on your specific type - you could narrow in on what motivates you, what gets in your way and how to better solve - to achieve success. How to customize success. So... I need you to trust me on this one here and help me out. I want you to stop right now and take two minutes to take the quiz, find your "type" and send me the results.
Here is how you do it: First... go to www.mygeniustest.com, click "Log in," then scroll down and click on "No Account? Sign Up." Provide your info and the first question will appear. Second... once you have your type click here to send it to me.
Then, if you want of course you are welcome to continue on and watch all his videos and read all his descriptions and even order his book, but regardless - take the three minutes to find your type and send it to me. My plan then is to see if there are common trends regarding each type and weight loss motivation, challenges, etc. - and to figure out if there is a way to better, more specifically address each. Oh my gosh - this is SO exciting!!! Thank you in advance for helping out. And if you take the time, I think you will find it to be very eye opening as well.
