For those that have been regularly coming to the Breakfast at the Next Level events each month or have attended SOL events (such as The Next Level Retreat, Real Estate Riches, or other evening events) or have been on the Platinum Program,  one thing that you may not realise is just how vast your knowledge base has become.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that the way we are living has advanced significantly over the past 5 or 10 years…many of us have adopted healthy eating and exercising practices, or accumulated wealth through real estate or shares much easier than we thought possible, or are much more aware of the power of our mind in creating our desired life, or we may have simply elevated to a higher spiritual plane.

As you reflect on the past year, consider even the past 10 years. Think of how life has advanced for you, and with this awareness, realise that joy not only comes from improving the way we live but also from being able to share this knowledge with others in our community environment. Mother Theresa once said something along the lines of, “Not everyone can go and help 100 people at a time but we can all help one person at a time”.

Once we have all addressed our basic needs in life we achieve a high level of happiness. The interesting thing is, that by getting more we do not get the quantum leap in happiness that we first acquired. The next quantum leap comes from sharing and caring for others. So it is that I recommend you become more aware of the people around you – your family, your friends, and even your work colleagues and notice what is required to assist them take their lives to the next level.

When communicating to assist others, it is best not to direct people to an outcome (such as “you need to lose weight!”) – rather the best approach is to share your story of how you benefited from adopting a change in your life. People are influenced more from stories than from being preached to. So if you have done well with your health, share your story. If you have made lots of money and wealth, share your story. If you have developed an outstanding relationship with a loved one, share the techniques that made your relationship successful. Or if you have simply mastered your emotions and are able to feel good everyday no matter what happens, share and inspire other so they can learn too.

You see, sharing is caring. People love to hear other’s testimonies – the key is to have structure to your sharing. It is a bit like “rags to riches” stories – we all love to hear them and find them inspiring. Begin sharing with how you were, and what challenges you had – people will relate to you when you show them humility.  Then share the moment of change – the belief system that changed that got you on the road to personal change. Then share with them how life is now. This 3 step process is a simple and effective way for others to listen , learn and apply. And who knows, in 5 years from now someone may come up to you and thank you for sharing with them because your story may have set them on a course that changed their life, business and lifestyle.

We have many interesting people booked into our Breakfast at the Next Level for 2016 (we have Callum Hann in December – should be great! (http://solresults.com/nextlevelbreakfasts/callum-hann/) – this is a perfect environment to bring people to hear amazing stories of personal and professional growth that will inspire, transform and educate. So come along and bring a friend for free when you become a member of the Breakfast Program.

Live with passion, stay on your life’s purpose and always work toward being at peace in all you do.

Thank you team for an inspiring weekend
,

Thank you team for an inspiring weekend, that I would describe as Alpha (learning) meets Landmark or Landmark with HEART. Thank God you guys emphasise the importance of Truth and Spirit for a fulfilling life! This was a pleasant surprise and made my weekend all the more satisfying – knowing I was in the hands of people with heart and soul. I have attended many workshops over the past 15 years and believe you have developed something unique (blending “career” goals with spiritual goals).

Love and Light

Went beyond my expectations
,

The weekend went beyond my expectations and I found the peace that I needed which I couldn’t do by myself. This weekend gave me closure on what was a very hurtful, confusing and frightening situation. Thank you all and bless you all.

I recommend it whole heartedly
,

I really enjoyed SOL Institute’s seminar. It makes you feel excited and it gets you to take action towards your own goals. Especially, when you can see other people around you doing the same and making massive changes in their lives. I recommend it whole heartedly.

After those few hours my life instantly changed

Hi Manuel , Peter and Stan,

I just wanted to thank you for all the help and guidance you have provided for me. It means a lot to me that you took the time out of your public holiday to coach me and help me begin my transformation to a better self. After those few hours my life instantly changed and I felt in more control of my thoughts and actions than I have felt in a long time. The work-shop really helped as well, so that I could refine the new concepts and continue to clear out the junk!

Yesterday was great, as I finally stood back and saw the map that had become my life, so now I feel I have the necessary tools to ‘chisel’ away at a new beginning. 🙂 Which I am looking forward to experiencing, challenges, obstacles and all! I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for all three of you guys helping me in different areas of my life. The gratitude I feel is HUGE! So thankyou again. My life has been changed in so many beautiful ways, so that

I am now closer with my sister and my mum and there is so much more to look forward to.

All the best

Stan, Manuel and Peter are very genuine, down to earth people, who have walked the walk. Their personal experiences gave me the belief that anyone can achieve their dreams if they learn to apply the power of the mind. The weekend was a life changing experience.

Thank you

To Peter, Stan and Manuel,

I would like to thank all of you for providing an amazing workshop on the weekend. I really enjoyed the fun, the activities, the warm welcome from all of you and the friendly environment from all the people who attended the workshop. So far, I really enjoy practicing every morning, the breathing, positive self-talk and gratitude that I learnt from form your workshop. These simple excercises do make a huge difference in how I feel and enjoy my everyday life. Beside these , all other materials that you taught us during the workshop will become powerful tools to achieve the power of the mind. The weekend was one of the most unforgettable life experiences for me.

Thank you
