Understanding Depression – FPUK.co

depressed pic

Have you ever been plagued by depression? Yes, “plagued,” because it affects nearly 1 in 4 adults in the UK alone! Not to mention the number of adolescents who must deal with depression daily.

What does depression look like for you? You can’t concentrate at work, you’re exhausted, feeling hopeless, empty or alone? A lot of people suffer from depression, but it is rarely acknowledged or treated.

You can numb it out with medications without ever dealing with the actual root of it. Unfortunately, unless you get down to real cause, your problem will not just go away!

I’ve spoken with several people who had dealt with depression for decades. And even after 10-20 years worth of antidepressants it didn’t solve their problems!

One woman in particular, Barbara, mentioned that her mother called her lazy when she was growing up! She didn’t even know she was coping with depression until many years later.

If you’re a parent, this is important! Depression can seem like laziness or some sort of choice, but it could really be your children dealing with a much larger problem.

The only thing that is going to solve your depression or your child’s, is going back to the root of the issue and throwing out that nasty rubbish. For some people, it’s their parents’ divorce, a bad relationship break-up, abuse, or some type of unforgiveness that has sewn a rotting, stinking seed of depression in your life.

And do you know how that seed gets fed? This is important for those of you who are not struggling with depression, but could be close to that full-out battle. You feed that seed by focusing on it. How you think, determines what you speak, and what you speak then determines how you live (or don’t live). What you feed will flourish and what you neglect will die.

If you’ve been speaking death over your life, your dreams, your actions or even over your kids – that needs to stop!

Build Your Circle Of Friends – FPUK.co

ripple fpuk.co

Hi Friends,
Back from honeymoon now – Sorry its been a while since I last posted, but 1 month ago yesterday we got married and then took time out in Egypt to relax and although I took my trusted iPad planning to continue my blogging whilst there, wisdom and relaxation took over.
But while we were there we met and built our circle of friends, talking about life around the pool or while on the beach we met so many people, some happy as they escaped reality and their stress back home and some like us that enjoy life and all it gives us. But today I want to continue talking about friends and the ripple effect it causes building true friendships.

What would you say if I told you you are wasting one of your biggest assets? You’d probably want to know what it was! You see, every human has a circle of influence. In fact, the average person knows 2,000 people by the time they are 20 years old.

That means every day you have the power to influence thousands of people just by stating an opinion, sharing life experiences and recommending other businesses.

You can choose to ignore your circle of influence, like the majority of people do. Or you can utilise this resource to build your business, find a job, look for a date or expose your product or service.

I imagine you’re reminded of a few slimy “friends” you once had on Facebook who wouldn’t stop pushing their business in your face until you were so exhausted you finally “unfriended” them. But that isn’t what I mean. You can utilise your influence without resorting to shameless self-promotion.

What I am talking about is creating a mutually-beneficial relationship. How many times have you heard an acquaintance, friend or family member express a need for something? They’re looking for a hair stylist, they just put their house on the market… etc.

What you do is become a connector. Help your friends fill their needs! Know someone who is recruiting and another person that is looking for a job? Refer your friend.

I’m a firm believer that what you hand out, you will get back. So when you give referrals, who do you think is the first name they will think of when referring within their circle of influence? Becoming a resource for your friends not only increases your value, but it’s essentially setting up free advertising for yourself. Not only that, but you are helping the people in your life and strengthening those relationships.

Marketers are always trying to get to your list. Think of it this way – Abercrombie isn’t about getting YOU to buy their clothes. They are about getting you to advertise for them. That’s why they put their label on the outside. You are advertising their clothes to your circle of influence. So if these marketers find your list so valuable, why don’t YOU use your own list???

Building a list and using the resources that are right in front of you will open so many doors and opportunities: jobs, loyal clients, better relationships and more! You should be consistently building and adding to your list of resources.

Start asking “Who do I know?” You’d be surprised by the number of people you actually know and the possible resources you are wasting.

Thats it for today, build your list, talk to 5 more people and ask for a business card or phone number, and of course give your out too.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Activate that circle of influence today and please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Andrew 🙂

Want to Succeed, Just Ask – FPUK.co

Print

Hi friends

I seem to be having a focus on success at the moment, thats because I’ve been mentoring someone who has been very negative and now they are goal focused and wanting to achieve, no more than achieve they want to succeed at whatever they put their mind to.

You won’t succeed in life unless you are connected to the right people. And those who enable you to succeed won’t always come to you; usually you must go to them.

Why do you think there’s a newspaper seller on every corner and a soft drink machine on every hotel floor? Success won’t come knocking on your door; you’ve got to go and find it.

Jesus didn’t set up a throne in the middle of each town and say, ‘This is the only place you can meet with Me’. No, He went to the marketplace, to the boats of fishermen, to the synagogue, to the homes of people. He ‘…went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere’ (Luke 9:6KJV).

What is keeping you from reaching out to others? Fear of rejection?

Until your dream becomes more important to you than your fear of rejection, you will never succeed. Successful people dread rejection too; the difference is that they believe their goals are worth it.

There are two kinds of people in your life: those who already know you have something they need, and those who don’t know it yet. So start a ‘people list’. The law of relationship says that every person is only four people away from the person they need. This simply means that you know Bill, who knows Judy, who knows Charles, who knows the person you want to get to.

You are already networked. Follow the dots and you’ll get to your destiny. Success always begins somewhere, at some moment, with someone.

The secret is, you must reach out.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Andrew 🙂

3 Tools to Beat This Economy

  
There are millions of people who are drowning in debt and suffocating under financial pressure, and most blame the economy for their financial struggles. “I can’t get a job because of the economy!” “I can’t pay my bills because of the economy!” “I’m in debt because of the economy!”

But then there are lots of others experiencing outrageous success in the exact same economy. It raises the question – if the economy was truly to blame for either success or failure, then why isn’t everyone experiencing the same success or failure?

Are you ready for this? It’s not the economy! It’s you. Those succeeding in this economy are obviously doing something completely different than the ones who are failing. They know that it’s never the circumstances that determine success in life – it’s how you deal with the circumstances.

What do circumstances have to do with all of this? Here’s the deal. You can either use the economy as an excuse and do what the other 98% of the population is doing – sit back and hope for the economy to change. OR you can become part of this 2% or people who is figuring out how to make themselves more valuable by learning how to thrive in any economy.

There’s a very simple principle I learned when I first got into business, and that is the marketplace pays for value. That principle has helped me, as well as hundreds of thousands of people to succeed in a downtime market. My clients have gotten giant raises, bonuses, and promotions in their jobs, and their businesses have exploded, all because they have increased their value.

I know you’re saying, “HOW can I increase my value?” It’s easy… The only way to increase your value is to increase your skill. It’s NOT about your personality, your looks, where you were born, your family, or your background. It’s your skill.

There are 3 skill sets that make you valuable in any economy – professional skills, people skills, and leadership development skills. All of these skill sets will increase your value and your income.

Professional skills. Whether you are a doctor, estate agent, mechanic, waitress, teacher, home business owner, or customer service rep, you must know the basics of your profession. You must be willing to learn new, specialized skills. The difference in a professional and an amateur is your skill.

People skills. People are everywhere! You work with them, live with them, buy things from them, and sell things to them. And where does money come from? People! If you learn more about people than you do anything else, you will be unusually successful. If you learn great people skills, you will attain income security. Those who do not have people skills are usually the first to be laid off.

Personal development & leadership skills. People with high leadership skills have extremely high influence and high value in the marketplace. They are consistently working on improving themselves, and they raise up other leaders. They have a “no excuse” mindset. They focus on producing results. They do not let circumstances define their success, but they take personal responsibility to create their own success.
It’s time to stop using the economy as an excuse. Because the reality is, if you do the same thing you’ve always done, you’ll get the same thing you’ve always gotten. So you have to take your skills to the next level. If you want to truly succeed in this economy, you’ve got to master professional skills, people skills, and personal development and leadership skills.

Go ahead and take a few minutes right now to evaluate your skill levels in these 3 areas. (How will you know where you stand? Look at the result – your income.) If you would like to increase your income, grow your business, get promoted in your job, and finally get out of debt and on your way to financial independence in 2013, this is where you must start.

Before I sign off for today, would you please help me with something? It’s no secret that people around the world are struggling financially. You have in front of you today a message that will equip people to pull themselves out of a financial pit. And all we have to do is get the message to them. So please just send this to them today!

Have a great day 

Andrew
