39. Contrepreneurs, Wantrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs - Mike Winnet- UKs #1 Demotivational Speaker
48 min

Mike Winnet is the UK's #1 demotivational speaker. He is the antidote to 'Contrepreneurs' that sell instant success formulas to 'Wantrepreneurs' who are never going to make it and are just wasting their money.


He believes that most people are average and should not harbour lofty ambitions to achieve their dreams and should be much happier with a simple life.



Needless to say, this sparks an interesting debate between Mike and the Growth Mindset host Sam.

You have the same number of hours in the day as the world’s most successful people. What you lack is their drive, work ethic, and talent. That’s why they are more successful than you. - Mike Winnet


LESSONS

DON’T BE A CONTREPRENEUR!

I had only thought about how i could try to convince people that they can do more with their lives but really i want to help them live the best life they can. I don’t want to be another contrepreneur selling the message that anyone can be successful with these 5 simple tricks or something and never want to be selling conferences and course that will change your life to people whose lives I can’t change.

I really don’t want to push the message at all that things are easy or that you can get the key to happiness or success by just listening to me, you definitely have to take on the growth mindset and acknowledge and work at your weaknesses. recognise your strengths and where you can develop further and optimise your time for learning and executing and not just consuming more knowledge endlessly. anyway its a humbling realisation to be told that I could be selling false dreams to my listeners but it’s great to make sure I focus on really only making content that is really useful and isn’t just click-baity crap.

YOU ARE THE CONTENT YOU CONSUME

So important these days. it’s super easy to get caught up with your social media feed and going on a 2 hour youtube binge or watching netflix or love island (well at least that’s what i hear, i could literally never watch love island) but anyway the point is that the internet and technology is a real amplifier and can be dangerous.

It gives great access to science and learning but at the same time unlimited content that it useless and depending on what you choose to consume will really affect you. You are the direct result of the information your taking in and if your constantly on social media then your never going to be successful and you are pretty much just making yourself stupider. if you can optimise your time for reading quality content and learning then the world is your oyster

YOU CAN’T BUY INSTANT SUCCESS

Wether someone is selling the key to business success or a zero to hero coding course in three months the facts of life is that you nothing is that easy. Anyone offering something like this is a liar and you are literally wasting your money if you expect to just pay £1000 and have everything sorted out for you. It takes work.

To run a business you need to dedicate all the hours to get it off the ground. To become a coder you need to really learn the fundamentals before paying for any bootcamp course or you have no chance of learning much at all whilst you are there. Trust me!


BOOKS

RICHARD TEMPLAR - THE RULES OF WEALTH
The Rules of Wealth' is a set of behaviours that separate the wealthier from the less wealthy. They are a personal code for a more prosperous life.

ARE YOU AVERAGE - MIKE WINNET
40 TELL TALE SIGNS THAT YOU ARE AVERAGE.

Motivational speakers like Tony Robbins have got ordinary Joe’s like you so pumped up and ready to “crush it", that society is overrun with wannabe entrepreneurs. And that's dangerous. The rise of social media has got everyone believing they can run an online business. But if everyone is focused on their side hustle, who's going to do the real jobs?

So this book is to stop any idea you may have of making the world a better place and just getting you to accept this is it. It’s time to admit that you’re average.

David Meltzer | How to Buy Happiness by Shopping for the RIGHT Things
In today’s episode, we cover the myth about success with David Meltzer. David is the Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and formerly served as CEO of the renowned Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, which was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire.   While “money can’t buy happiness” is a phrase most people in today’s world are familiar with, many of us still chase after money as if it will buy us happiness - so what is it about this truth we can’t seem to let go of and what can you do every day to lead a more fulfilling life without money?   What to Listen For What is the biggest myth about success?  What does it mean to “shop for the right things” and why is that phrase so important when you start attaining financial success? How do you start practicing gratitude when you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for? What are the 3 votes you make each day that influence whether or not you can live a successful, fulfilling life? What 3 concepts can you internalize that will give you motivation on a daily basis? What 5 daily practices can you start implementing today to help you achieve your dreams?   We grow up being told that money doesn’t buy happiness and yet we are surrounded and bombarded with messages about the crap we need to buy in order to make our lives better (aka to make us happier). And many of us are raised in a culture where we expect to give/receive material gifts every year (Christmas, birthdays, etc) because they’ll bring us joy (aka happiness). We have to be able to recognize these signals and then we must be willing to take steps to live outside of them - aware of them, but dismissive of how silly they are.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

352: It's Time To Create Your 10 Year Vision
Do you have a clear vision for what the next 10 years of your life will be like? If not, would you like my help creating one? If you have one, do you think it would be beneficial to revisit it? Last week, I came across a journal entry I wrote back in 2016. It was titled “The Miracle Morning Movement 10 Year Vision.” When I reread it, I was inspired by some of the possibilities, amazed to realize how much of it had already come true, and reminded that we can all benefit from creating and maintaining a 10-year vision that drives our behavior each day. I want you to be able to look back on this moment and say to yourself, “I did it. I got clear on the life I was committed to creating, what I needed to do, who I needed to become to create the most fulfilling life I could imagine, and I made it happen.” Today, Shawn joins me to talk about the astounding problems with our healthcare system, the importance of diet and exercise in illness prevention, and the major cultural changes that need to happen to help us become a healthier society. KEY TAKEAWAYS * First, you’re going to hear a detailed example of a 10-year vision to show you what it looks like when things come to fruition. * Then we’re going to explore why creating a 10-year vision is worth your time. * Finally, you’re going to learn a step-by-step process you can use to create a 10-year vision of your own.

Find the Blessing | An Intimate Fireside Chat with Tony and Sage Robbins (Part 1)
Tony and Sage sit down for an intimate fireside chat to personally share what their own experience has been during this time, and also share a message of hope and unity during this unique holiday season. Together they tell us how this is a time to move forward, to create, to be able to step into another dimension of who we are. Because what we get will never make us happy; it’s who we become and what we contribute. “We are not the manager of our circumstances, we are the creator of our life experience.” – Tony Robbins About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR. He began doing evening radio programs called “fireside chats,” designed to communicate directly with the American people. At that time, 90% of people in the U.S at that time had a radio. Today, 96% of people have a cell phone and nearly all have internet access. Instead of being unified and watching all the same things, and having a collective experience, now we're all kind of separated. And we can see division in our culture. We desperately need a form of unity, a form of connection, more humanity and more kindness in the world. Tony and Sage thought to bring back this time-honored tradition of a fireside chat as a means of unity and compassion. We’re entering the winter season, drawing inward into our homes and into ourselves, reflecting on the hardships and blessings alike this unique year has brought. In this three-part series, you will hear them dispel their hopes and dreams for you this holiday season, as well as share some of Tony’s powerful tools and strategies to not only survive the coming months, but to step up and thrive.
