Kevin Green’s 4 Keys To Success

Look behind Kevin Green’s self-effacing and humble manner, and you find an astute, meticulous and highly driven entrepreneur.

There’s a reason he is the UK’s top real estate owner. He has been mentored by Sir Richard Branson and gives talks across the globe on how to achieve success.

Normally, I try to break down the core lesson from each guests into three takeaway points. However, Kevin already breaks down his own success into FOUR essential themes.

Here are Kevin Green’s four themes of success:

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Attitude is everything
  3. Self-confidence
  4. Stay grounded.

1. Self-awareness is a big one for all of us, no matter the industry. You can read all the success books you want, and apply great business techniques, but if you are in the wrong game, you will always be stuck.

We must know our limits and our talents, and be honest with ourselves about what we are good at. There’s no point trying to please everyone. Get clear on your gifts and passions, and start living your destiny.

2. Everyone is on their own journey. Our idea of success might be different to others. Everyone you meet has their own story, and deserves to be given the same level of respect.

Having hit rock bottom himself, Kevin knows the potential for transformation if ordinary people are given a chance in life. So see the best on others, and they will treat you the same way.

3. Self-belief is an essential component of success, but it doesn’t always come easy.

The good news is that it can be built over time. Kevin, like many of our guests, is naturally an introvert, but he has taught himself to be a strong, effective communicator. Whatever your self-esteem levels, confidence comes with practice, so don’t sweat it. Just start small, and build a lasting core of positive self-belief.4. Stay grounded – Success is a scary business. Most of us avoid it because it terrifies us. Kevin says Sir Richard Branson taught him a vital lesson about keeping his feet on the ground.

Sir Richard’s approach to business is to always keep in mind of the big picture. Look at the structure, be an observer. Don’t get caught up in success or rest on your laurels.

A major part of maintaining success is to always be evolving and adapting, and to do this you need to stay objective about yourself and your business.Kevin Green gives a whole new meaning to the term “self-made”.

He’s seen it all, and he has spent decades honing his success methods. His advice is simple, but effective, and each of these tips can be applied today.

Hope you guys are enjoying your Easter weekend. Ain’t nothing but the grind here at London Real, but it’s nice to refuel at this point in the year!

It has been an awesome week, so I just wanted to give the links to everything that’s been going on:

Have a good weekend! Looking forward to more productivity, passion, and as always, accountability, in the next week.

Push. Grind. Grow. How Community Sparks Transformation

What we have really learnt from the Summit is that when we come together as a community, our productivity quickens and our creativity skyrockets, more so than if we were to do it alone.

So to help you reach your goals, we are investing in ways to make it easier for you to connect, learn and create with each other.

Recently, we have been working on something awesome, which is the the NEW Live Chat and Video Call! We want to bring you visual and aural experience because we know that beating this kind of raw efficiency is hard!

Just as we have so much to learn from LR guests, there is plenty to be learnt from each other. So, next week, Academy member Kevin McNamara is to host our first ever Interactive Video Call: HOW To Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone.

But before that, I want to show you “how” Kevin  is becoming a real thought leader on the subject of “comfort zones” and why you should get involved in our group video call on 31st March!

Member Interview

What inspired you to this point?

My daughter, Holly, died at 5 months of age to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. That obviously takes you way out of your comfort zone and has the potential to crush your life forever. I was crushed for a long time. But there comes a time where you have to ask yourself ‘What am I doing with my life? I didn’t have the answers for a long time. Holly’s death was followed by two more kids being born, a divorce, another marriage and yet another divorce all within around 5 years. That tends to shake your confidence, a lot! I started dabbling in meditation after those experiences and that really helped. I met my partner Joy, in 2008 and that’s when life really started to change for the better. However in 2012 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which was another major challenge! Again, I was whisked out of my comfort zone. To cut a long story short I healed myself through eating whole foods, fruit, vegetables, fresh juices and fasting, exercise, sunshine and fresh air. And no medical intervention. Life has thrown some curve balls, but I refuse to give in and keep jumping outside the comfort zone to push grind and grow. So what inspires me? Holly, my other two kids Liam and Ally, who are fantastic, my partner Joy who inspires me everyday and just getting out and inspiring others to change their lives and start living with purpose, happiness and passion. My whole life experience has driven me to where I am today.”

How does the The 52 Week ‘Get Out of Your Comfort Zone’ Challenge work?

It first came about when I saw a couple of posts on the London Real Academy group page where the guys had achieved a really good goal by getting out of their comfort zones. I thought to myself ‘Imagine getting out of your comfort zone once a week for a year! Imagine the goals and changes you would see in your life after 12 months’. So I set up a Facebook Group and when you join the group you have to announce your 12 month goal then tell us your challenge for the week. You then post updates weekly in either a video or picture post with how you are going. It is a really amazing group of people from all round the world with some amazing challenges. And the challenges don’t stop after 12 months. We always have to keep pushing grinding and growing.”

What results have you got so far from others? How has this affected people’s lives?

“The most inspiring post so far has been Melissa Yap from the Academy where her challenge was to do one push up for the week. She did a 10 day time lapse video of her struggling to do the one push up. After 10 days, she was doing 4 or 5. She affected all of us and really showed what you can achieve with persistence. Early in the piece, myself, Dan Lemmon and few others did juice fasting challenges over 7 days. Through that, so many others are now doing fasts, liver cleanses, giving up chocolate and sugar. Amazing health results for people changing their diets. Ben Faulkner was so impressed with juicing he now has his wife and child juicing as well as starting a food blog. Daniel Ahovi is another who had a goal to run 1 mile every day for a week and rain hail or shine he was there with a video even late at night running his 1 mile. He has now joined a gym and goes 3 times a week and is running longer distances as a result. Another inspiring result. There are many others of course and I would be here all day telling you about them but for those who would like to be inspired and change their lives come and join the 52 Week Comfort Zone Challenge tribe!”

Where do you hope to take this in the future once people are out of their comfort zones?

“Getting out of your comfort zone is something you never stop doing. The more you do it the more you grow. Our motto is Push Grind Grow. You push yourself out of your comfort zone, grind away at the challenge you have, and then sit back after and see how far you have grown. And we never stop growing. You stop growing and you die inside. So we will all be pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones till the day we die.”

What’s next for you?

“I am setting up a website and have a YouTube channel already set up – Get Out of Your Comfort Zone TV. I want to make this my inspiring business and live and breathe it each day. Its my passion and purpose. Joy and I are setting up Comfort Zone seminars both in Australia and round the world also, which is exciting. I also want to travel 6 months of every year doing travel vlogs all round the world for our YouTube channel. My greatest loves are helping people, travelling and making videos. So lots of challenges ahead for me yet.”

How will your App work? How will it add value to people’s lives?

“The App will allow people to set goals and then see what they need to do to achieve that goal. So there will be challenges set each week to drive them to each individual goal. It’s early days for the App, but it is all a learning curve for me because it will be my first ever app. Archie Ology from the Academy is helping me big time and I can’t thank him enough!”

What were your comfort zones and what made you break out of them to realise what you wanted to do?

“One of the biggest comfort zones I had was not asking for help. It was easier and more comfortable to say nothing and just give up on my ideas. When I was younger I was the shyest kid ever at school. It was horrible. I was always too scared or I thought they wouldn’t help or I wasn’t good enough for them to speak to. It was a combination of things, but it comes down to lack of confidence and self esteem. That has changed big time now. It wasn’t until I joined the Academy that I really pushed myself to ask for help and speak to people who surprise surprise would help! We spend much of our life too worried about the good opinion of other people. Thanks to the likes of Peter Sage and Dan Peña, that has changed for me.”

What makes you think/feel this is the important thing to do? 

I just have a ‘knowing’ that what I am doing is what I need to be doing and that it is important for me to do. I really ‘know’ this is my purpose. I know now I inspire people and I have always been too scared to say that in case I get criticised! I don’t care anymore. I do what I do with total love and passion to help others discover that a life full of excitement, adventure, passion and inspiration exists outside their comfort zone.”

Breathe Motherf*cker! 3 Things Wim Hof Taught Me

Ultimately, Wim Hof’s message is one of empowerment. He is not just some guy who does crazy feats in freezing temperatures. He is no media gimmick.

Wim uses his record breaking powers, and the attention he gets from the media around the world, to further his true mission to give everyone the tools to create strength, happiness and health for themselves.

The key to happiness is harnessing our reactive brains, the survival instincts, instead of living at the mercy of them.

Here are three of the lessons I learned from Wim:

  1. The Cold Is My Teacher
  2. Breathe Motherf*cker!
  3. We Can Conquer Our Fear Of Death

1. The Cold Is My Teacher

He hates the cold just as much as you or I do! Wim can think of nothing better than a warm beach under some palm trees, but he knows that in the bite of the cold lies a deeper wisdom.

Wim’s experiences with the cold have led him to a conscious connection with the instinctual mind, a deeper relationship with his primal nature.

For most of us, this is often a slave-master relationship, but by confronting the merciless power of the cold, Wim has learned to still his mind and harness that power rather than be a victim of it.2. Breathe Motherf*cker!

The way we create this conscious connection is through understanding the breath, and as a result, understanding the true nature of the mind/body relationship.

Wim’s daring experiments in the cold create a shortcut into the body’s natural survival techniques.

Wim controls this process through mastering the breath.

The idea is to reset the body into it’s completely natural state of healthy survival. It’s a neat trick but it requires disciplined breath training to do it in a controlled way.3. We Can Conquer Our Fear Of Death

Wim’s story of swimming in freezing waters under one metre of ice will make any normal person panic just listening to it.

But for Wim the experience was one of complete calm, an almost dreamlike feeling.

He had mastered his breathing and pH levels so much that the loss of oxygen didn’t send his body into a state of fear and flight.

Even though his retinas froze and he lost his way in the dark waters, Wim became one with his nervous system.

We may not be able to conquer death, but Wim’s method proves that we can conquer our primal fear of it.

Can you imagine a life without fear of death? If we can control our nervous systems in the most extreme situations, then we truly can create happiness in the face of life’s struggles.Wim’s message powerful because it puts us in the saddle. Mindset is truly everything.

Have you ever experienced a moment of calm in an extreme situation? Let me know what it was like and leave me a comment.

There has been an explosion of activity at London Real after the momentum of last weekend’s Summit.

More guests, more videos and more badass, comfort zone smashing action-taking by everyone.

Check out this behind-the-scenes video which will give some crazy highlights from the Summit.

Also, here are the links from the last week:

Okay that’s all for this week, loving the energy so looking forward to another six days of action, accountability and lots and lots of FUN!

It’s not about “me”, it’s about “we”: What I learned from the London Real Academy Summit

The Summit was a momentous occasion. It was a celebration of this fantastic community.

It was an opportunity for everybody to come together on what has been achieved so far in almost one year since the Academy was first established. It was a gathering of Academy members from all across the world at the same time in the same place.

I really feel that it is down to each one of us to make the step towards building connections and making true conversations happen in the community.

So for me, the Summit was fundamental in bringing us all together so that we could engage in quality time and face-to-face interaction as an opportunity for real relationships to form!

It is a prime example of community as a culture, that we are a living, breathing community that exists outside of the walls of the London Real Studio.  

I think the most contemplative talk for me was by Chris Eubank: “Don’t be afraid to steal ideas because no-one is an original.”

Our originality depends on what becomes of this idea! Chris reminded me of the most important values and principles in life.

For me, these are to be authentic, to be gentle in your words and actions, to FEEL your thoughts, your intentions, your words and your actions, because feeling impacts on everything, including the way you choose to communicate with others.

Chris says embrace negative criticism, welcome it, go one step further and ask for more.

Hopefully in the process, we will all be inspired to apply more feeling in our lives so that that we can truly live by what we say and not divert from our original intentions or goals.

I see a London Real community in each City of the world with an ambassador representing the community in that City. I want us to inspire millions and to be inspired.

The whole Summit experience made me realise that collaboration is my concept of success.

When people come to live by what they say, that’s success, when they take action, that’s success, when they take an idea and apply it, that’s success, when they go to learn a new skill, that’s success.

I learned so much from you guys, and from the whole Summit day in general. Our journey so far is a culmination of our experiences on a personal and professional level, our age and our skills. Where we go from here is entirely dependent on our choice, and our current mind-set.

I see London Real Academy as an organic community built on hard work rather than “raw talent.”

Being part of a network of people with different talent and experience like this, challenges us to growth and action because it opens us up to seeing our true potential.

In terms of what impresses me the most, it is the sheer love and respect that each Academy member has for one another that I am admired by, because we need this strong foundation to begin with.

As Chris Eubank said at the Summit, we need a collaborative mind-set. It is not about “me,” it is about “we.”

Face the challenge and evolve: What RJ Mitte taught me

Part of what success means to us here at London Real is how well people overcome challenges.

The more high performance people I talk to, the more I realise none of has any excuses. No matter what you face today, you have the choice to see it as a way of evolving, or a reason to stay stuck in resistance.

No one allowed me to see this more than Breaking Bad star RJ Mitte.

Here are three things he taught me:

  1. Disability Is A Gift
  2. Your Challenges Are Your IP
  3. Don’t Live In Fear

  1. Disability Is A Gift

RJ has been through something even most people with disabilities would never experience – developing an onscreen character whose disabilities are part of a much wider narrative.

I am convinced that the creative challenge of harnessing his Cerebral Palsy to develop a fictional portrayal in Breaking Bad gave RJ a new perspective on his disability. It allowed him to see it not only as a strength, but as something incredibly special.

Our disabilities are gifts, and if we explore them creatively, they become gifts that keep on giving.2. Your Challenges Are Your IP

Your flaws are not there to be fixed or cured, your flaws are there to make you who you are.

In a digital economy, your business is based on who you are, not what you do. It’s about your IP.

RJ hammered this home to me, as his life is a stark example of how this new way of defining yourself in your industry really does work!

If RJ can turn CP into a source of power YOU have no excuse!3. Don’t Live In Fear

Sounds easy right? You’ve heard it before, but how many times in a day do you not do something because it scares you or it is easier not to.

It is not just CP that makes RJ special. It is his work-ethic, passion and humility.

I asked RJ if he was intimidated as a 14-year-old working with great established actors.

The truth is he wasn’t! He was more interested in doing a good job, focusing on his own potential and living up to the passion of those in his team.

Fear is a distraction. That’s all it is. You are here to do a job, to live a fulfilled life so that others can too. Don’t get bogged down in comparing yourself to others, or your self-esteem anxieties. Just focus on your mission.Okay, that is just three of the things that stuck with me after an awesome conversation with RJ Mitte.

Let me know a situation that you can choose to see as a disability or a chance to evolve, TODAY. I look forward to your answers!

How To Conquer Your Business “Hands Down”

What is it about fighters that captures our imaginations?

Why do people who have no relationship with martial arts or a warrior’s life still like to spend hard cash to tune into live events where adult men and women unleash unthinkable violence on each other?

A fighter is not just a badass who can beat people up. Like Ronda Rousey, Conor Mcgregor and Chris Eubank have all shown, a fighter is an entertainer.

They fight for the crowd.

Entertainers are more than highly skilled people. They are conduits for the emotional release of the community.

That’s why Dan Hardy said a fighter needs to be a poet and an artist, as well as a gifted warrior.

You are responsible for the emotional experience of thousands, if not millions of others.

It’s pretty heavy!Michael Page is a brilliant entertainer. He doesn’t just add flare to the atmosphere of a fight; his techniques, his knockouts and victories are all as equally theatrical as they are devastating to his opponents.

Brian asks Michael to explain an iconic knockout he gained over fighter Ben Dishman.

In a sweeping roundhouse kick Michael connected and sent his opponent to floor in an instant.

At the same time he swung into a composed position glaring at the photographers without even a conscious thought of what he was doing. It’s pure theatre, and must have been terrifying and thrilling for the crowd.

It is one thing to be Muhammad Ali and talk poetry to conjure interest in a fight. It is another thing to make violent outbursts of warrior energy beautiful and exciting to watch.

Michael says he feeds off the crowd, gains energy from them, and factors them into his innovations in the ring.

Like a rockstar or a performance poet, he is channeling them, using their negative or positive emotions to create a spectacle.

This must have been what the gladiators of ancient Rome were doing. They put everything on the line to exorcise the demons and primitive desires of a nation.With the whole Ido Portal thing hitting the UFC right now, it’s important to note that Michael Page came to similar ideas through his own fighting intelligence.

He gets frustrated with dogma, as he recounts from his point-fighting days. And he spends as much time thinking about what he does in the moments between direct combat, as he does thinking about actual fighting technique.

He is big on patience, controlling the pace of a fight, and being constantly alive to what happens in the moment. Fighting is a creative process for Michael, it’s an art form as well as a craft.

This same creative adaptability also applies to Michael’s business approach, and it is what makes him an essential case study for entrepreneurs.The whole “Hands Down” brand extends into everything Michael does, not just combat. It symbolises his complete freedom, his individuality, and his unorthodox mindset.

Of course, all of these are essential to successful entrepreneurship.

But there’s something else about “Hands Down”. It gives opponents a false sense of security, it invites them in, makes them cocky.

The “Hands Down” style is about making the opponent think they have domination, while at the same time conquering through surprise.

If we can harness this principle in all areas of our life, not just fighting or business, how much more could we achieve.

In life, we are constantly being pulled and pushed by the needs and desires of others. If we adopt the “Hands Down” method, maybe we can fool them into leaving us alone, and free ourselves to control the pace of our days.I don’t know – what do you think? Am I on the right track with this?

Let me know in the comments, I’m interested to hear how you can apply “Hands Down” to your life, whatever arena you battle in.

Summit week has been even crazier than usual, which I quite honestly didn’t think was possible!!

Today we’ll be filling the day with talks, workshops and other kinds of madness, but if you can’t join us, I thought I would leave with the links to everything we’ve been up to this week:

Okay, so that’s a wrap people, have a great weekend.
