Coaching and Consulting Thought Leader Alan Weiss Teaches Entrepreneurs "The Power of Personal Worth and Fulfillment"
EAST GREENWICH, R.I., July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --The key obstacle to building a successful business is a lack of self-worth, a feeling of inadequacy or a belief that one is an "imposter" who will be identified and humiliated, said Alan Weiss who has written 55 books and has consulted with thousands of entrepreneurs, coaches and businesses over the past 30 years.
"This phenomenon is worse today than ever before, because the world is far more complex, options are overwhelming, advice gushes forth like a flow of lava, and people we think to be role models in sports, business, entertainment, and politics often turn out to be frauds. The greatest opponent most of us ever face is the voice inside our heads whispering (and sometimes yelling), 'You don't deserve this,' 'That fee is far too high for your talents,' 'When someone really good shows up you'll be cast aside,' 'Why would they listen to you?' and so on," he said.
He is offering a new online distance learning course called "The Power of Personal Worth and Fulfillment" to help entrepreneurs build self esteem. The early bird discount expires on July 15, 2014.
These manifestations include:
- An unwillingness to "push back" even when you know you're right.
- Continual "self-editing" of your speech and writing.
- Vacillating when an opportunity presents itself, and losing momentum.
- A feeling of "overwhelm" and lack of control.
- Seeking the "magic bullet" from coaches and self-help books.
- A constant need for perfection which undermines all chance of success.
- Overreaction to random, unsolicited feedback.
- Lack of energy and vitality.
- Fear of making a phone call to or taking a meeting with strangers.
"I've determined that the greatest single factor separating success and lack of success is self-worth, the belief in one's own talents, the drive to assertively prove oneself instead of protect oneself. It's the difference between a poverty mentality and an abundance mentality. It's calmness instead of panic under pressure. It's awakening to happily conquer a new day rather than dreading a long, slow, crawl through enemy territory," he said.
"Building self-worth is the lever I've been able to use most often to help people achieve, triumph, and overcome. And I've found that it's as important for people working in organizations as it is for people working for themselves," he said.
"I want to provide this to everyone I can, in privacy and pragmatically. I don't believe in empty affirmations or sweat lodges or building sand castles on a beach. I believe in rapid, short-term actions and results," he said. "I believe in the power of human potential, in our ability to learn and grow, and I begin all endeavors with the value that we all welcome personal improvement."
The year-long course includes:
- A weekly, five-minute video
- A monthly, brief electronic print booster
- A weekly, three-minute podcast.
"I want to provide help in the media most comfortable for you," he said. "I don't want to interrupt your day. I want to make your day."
Topics will include but not be limited to:
- The language of self-worth
- The essentials of influence
- Building your personal brand
- Eliminating perfectionism
- Overcoming "poor starts"
- Brilliant first impressions
- When to walk and when to "fight"
