Burning your Ships, We are what we Think About with Life Coach Peter Skurray & In the Business of Mylight It's so great to get back into podcasting In my introduction, I'll give an insight for who this podcast is design for and how by my actions of making my life transparent through this podcast I could possible help others. I'm not a GURU, I am the Student. Each session I will record for you, influential people I come in contact with that will enhance my possibilities of success In this first session I will explain my actions of why I quit my job, putting my family at risk this way. The success and failures for the first month of running my own business from home. Certainly some pretty cool things have happen even in the first month. I have my Life coach joining me each podcast with 10 mins of his time to explain concepts we can use to change the status quo of our lives, this week Peter Skurray of Sensez.com.au helps us with “why we do, the things we do and expect things to be different this time” Also in each session I will have an insight into someone’s business which is entitled “In the Business of?” each podcast I will interview an expert in his field in various industries. My first interview is with Greg Vowels of Mylight, a small family business that create specialist personalise night lights. I ask him how his business all came about, the design features of his website, hiring his first employee and where he made mistakes, where from here? What I have learnt in this podcast Real change only really happens has when there is sufficient PAIN, where upon there is no going back to your old way of doing things. I think of this way which I learnt from ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill ‘Burn Your Ships‘ A long while ago, a great warrior faced a situation which made it necessary for him to make a decision which insured his success on the battlefield. He was about to send his armies against a powerful foe, whose men outnumbered his own. He loaded his soldiers into boats, sailed to the enemy’s country, unloaded soldiers and equipment, and then gave the order to burn the ships that had carried them. Addressing his men before the first battle, he said, “You see the boats going up in smoke. That means that we cannot leave these shores alive unless we win! We now have no choice—we win, or we perish! They won. Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat.
