39. Contrepreneurs, Wantrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs - Mike Winnet- UKs #1 Demotivational Speaker
Play episode · 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.

348: The Evolution of The Miracle Morning Movement
With the world premiere of The Miracle Morning Movie approaching, I’ve been reflecting a lot on how TMM Movement has evolved over the past 12 years. What began as my little morning routine that I shared in a book, has since evolved into an international community and a worldwide movement. It’s had an astounding impact on millions of people as individuals and collectively, one person and one morning at a time. The Miracle Morning enables each of us to go out into the world as the best version of ourselves. It gives us the power to impact every life we touch and has had an immeasurable ripple effect on the world around us. Today, I’m looking back at how the Miracle Morning has evolved. Whether you’ve been practicing the Miracle Morning for years or just joined the community recently, I’ll be sharing tons of behind-the-scenes stuff you’ve likely never heard before, exploring what it really means to elevate the consciousness of humanity, and diving deep into just what makes this practice so transformative and powerful.

Continuing the Conversation for Healing and Unity | (Part 2) Taking a stand against injustice and creating real change
“Let’s create not only some healing here but some real change. … Change is automatic, but progress is not. And so this is a conversation today to see if we can create some progress. … What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?” – Tony Robbins It’s been over three months since the death of George Floyd, the unarmed, 46-year-old black man, who was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death, and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around race supremacy in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face. The aftermath of George Floyd’s death — and combined stacking of others like Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and most recently the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis. — has brought this nation to a threshold. With thousands of people around the world in grief, humanity is speaking loud and clear: enough is enough, the time is now to create real change rooted in our nation’s foundation of ‘justice for all.’ Beyond change, we need progress. As Tony said in the first episode of this special two-part podcast series, change is automatic – but progress is not. The conversation continues. In this 2-hour episode, Tony hosts a panel of five unique, multi-generational leaders who share their experience of what it is to be Black in America and lend their voice to what we, as a unified society, need to listen to and hear, to unite, to make progress, and ultimately to tap into love, compassion, and our deep connection to one another. “If love is not yet won, the battle is not yet over.” – Martin Luther King III Part 2 Guests: Charlamagne tha God (Radio show host, author, influencer) Rev. Jesse Jackson (Civil rights activist, former aide to Martin Luther King, Jr.) Barbara Becnel (Journalist, film producer, prison reform advocate) Van Jones (Author, television host) Derrick Johnson (President and CEO of the NAACP)
