During the Business Startup show at Olympia, London arranged by the Prysm group; I acted as a resident Business Strategy Consultant for …
… a wide range of business owners that attended and opted to take advantage of the strategy consultation sessions. Here is a summary of feedback given by Hassan of PeopleMatrix whose business is focussed on ‘Activating Mind and growing People and Businesses.
I used the strategy framework that I’ve developed based on business conducted throughout Europe, the Far East and the United states and incorporated this with the business books that I read [typically one a week]. It was good to get such feedback from Hassan stating that my input was ‘the best’ out of all of the other consultants providing assistance at the show.
I hope that my Business Advice & Enthusiasm will be found to be Extremely Useful by you and that that will lead to a source of Inspiration. I work with clients anywhere in the world by the effective use of technology so; please do feel free to get in touch should you feel you will benefit from taking advantage of consulting with Stephen C Campbell.

What do you really want in life? Most people don’t discover what they want in life until it’s time to die – and that’s a shame. Most people spend the best years of their lives watching television or doing things they dislike.
An author described humanity by saying, “Most people die at twenty and are buried at eighty.” Are you one of the living zombies? What do you really want in life? Some people struggle in answering such question. When asked what they want or what their goals in life are, many are unsure. They dillydally in their decision, hardly giving any thought about what they want in life. People without definite goals are letting time pass them by. Are you one of these people? If you are undecided about what you want out of life, do not worry. There are many ways of discovering your purpose in life. To discover what you want in life, try looking deep into your heart. Oftentimes, people are ruled by logic. People live by what they think they should be or by what others like them to be. The discovery process is the perfect time to listen to your heart. What your heart desires comes from the whispers of your authentic self. Your authentic self is the real you.
Listen to your heart to be able to listen to your authentic self. What your heart says usually feels right. What your heart desires is what you usually love to do and this represents your passion. Anything done with passion is like play where the task is accomplished without hesitation. You pour out your very best and feel no pressure or resistance.
You will totally enjoy doing things that are your passion. Setbacks, difficulties, and obstacles will make it more challenging, but should not deter you from pursuing your goals. Naturally, there may be barriers that may prevent you from reaching your goal, but your heart’s desire will find ways to overcome these barriers so that you may ultimately get what you want in life. Remember this: the universe supports people who are pursuing their passion and those who are pursuing their destiny. However, this does not mean that you don’t use your head. People are born with both the mind and heart. Your duty is to live your best life and be in harmony with your mind and heart. The poet Rumi wisely said, “Live completely in the head and you cannot feel the breath and rhythm of life. Live completely in the heart and you may find yourself acting like a love-struck fool with poor judgment and discipline. It’s all a fine balance – the head and heart must forge a lifetime partnership if one wants to live a beautiful life.”
Listen to your instinct. Part of human nature is the mysterious and spontaneous reaction on things. Often times, these are called instincts. Your authentic self communicates with you and guides you via instincts. Instincts are those gentle nudges that urge you to act and follow a certain path. Your role then is to listen attentively. Often times, we listen to what others say and allow them to run our lives. Parents often do this to their children. “We come from a family of doctors, so my son must also be a doctor.” How often do we hear this from parents who have good intentions for their children? Parents unconsciously block the true expression of their child’s real self and calling. Friends and critics will discourage you and point out the impossibility of your dream. Before heeding their advice, evaluate the accomplishments of the critics. Did they achieve theirs dreams? Do they dream big at all?
Remember, it is your destiny that is in line, not theirs. It doesn’t mean, though, that you will not listen to what other people say. Hear them out just the same. But the final decision should be yours. There is only thing to remember: Every person, to live truly and greatly, must define how he wants to live and what his brightest life will look like. Listen to your instincts and follow your heart’s desire. You will never go wrong.
Unlike some other topics in life, Self Develoment which includes Goal Setting, The Law Of Attraction the use the Subconscious Mind requires consant and never ending improvement. We need to adopt the Kaizen Suru verbs of the Japanese which means to improve.
We created the You-Can-Be whoever or whatever you choose to be membership (http://www.you-can-be.com/members/) site to cater for those who want to continue their Self Development learning as opposed to those who read a book once or who attend a seminar and end up making no changes in their lives.
Because of our programming and the need to fit in and be accepted it takes time to create new neural connections which will result in new habit patterns and hence changes in our actions and therefore results. To take advantage of this valuable resource, take a look at http://www.you-can-be.com/members/.
I am constantly amazed at talking to individuals who have read a Self Development book or have been to a seminar sometime in the past and; for some reason believe that that’s it. Self Development, Goal Setting and moving towards the life on our dreams should be constants in our lives. I have created the You Can Be whoever or whatever you choose to be membership site here http://www.you-can-be.com/members/ to provide a constant, monthly stream of fress, topical information to help individuals take their lives to the next level.
In my coaching amd seminar programs I understand more and more how much individuals seem to be part of what I call the Social Hypnosis, where we settle for less than the best we can be.
The theme I push for our Self Development programs is to get in touch with your Subconscious Mind, Invoke the Law Of Attraction and create that which you see in your mind. Go check out the You-Can-Be memberhsip site, it’s free to join – details at http://www.you-can-be.com/members/.
How do you live and conduct your life ? are you one of the vast majority of the population who say “I’ll Just Go With The Flow” ? Throughout our schooling we are taught to follow the crowd, get a job and all the rest of it.
In society the few individuals who break free of the herd mentality and accomplish great things are the ones we call successful. However when we examine things, there is actually no way to stand out and be one of those who are admired unless we stand out and be counted. We will be dealing with this in the next seminar on July 15th details at http://www.you-can-be.com/. Â
Now, back to the subject line â€“ going with the flow as most of us do means that on closer inspection we stay in the job we do not love, we stay in the relationship we know is right for us, we put up with the bodies which we do not like when we look in the mirror and the list goes on. Breaking free and being the person who you want to be or doing the things we dream of takes guts and character.
Self Development material (book, tapes, CDs & DVDs) are amongst the highest category of sales, even more astonishing is the data which shows that much of the material stays on the shelves of individuals or never get properly consumed. Not going with the flow will lead you closer to being, doing and having the things which you want and deserve.
Goal setting and being dedicated to Self and Personal Development takes real character and guts, people will question you and try to get you to abandon your dream.
In the next You-Can-Be seminar (see http://www.you-can-be.com/ ) I will be dealing with Goal Setting, Quantum Physics, Neuro Science and related topics. All of which is designed to give individuals tools and techniques to break free from ‘the flow’ and be whoever or whatever they choose to be.
If you are in the South West of the UK â€“ come along and spend the day immersing yourself in planning for the rest of your life.
