Jenny's 30 Days Challange

Confidence – by Jenny Verano

An Inspiration for Setting Your Daily Priorities

to increase your confidence

An interview with Jenny Verano

 

Klaus: “Dear Jenny,

I did learn from you, that you found a wonderful way to increase your confidence. What are you doing to train it?”

Confidence - Jenny Verano's trainingJenny Verano: “Every day I consciously do things that give me some sort of satisfaction and can be considered as achievements, even if they are only very small. It could be doing something that I have been procrastinating but needs to be done anyway. And, of course, there are always major things to get done. It is important to do those first if possible.”

Klaus: ” Yes, most of the time we get interrupted by the urgent duties. Why do you do it in this way?”

Jenny Verano: “I believe that

progress = happiness,

so I ensure I am making progress every single day. When I make progress, I feel happy and want to set more goals to continue growing. Real goals are not about getting things but about becoming something and growing because of it. Then

growth=progress

and the cycle repeats.”

Klaus: “Which tools are you using?”

Jenny Verano: “One of the tools I can think of right now is to decide, out of everything I want to do, what are the one or two things that, if I do them, I will feel like I have had a productive day, and do them first, if possible.

Another tool is to

transform my shoulds into musts.

Building Confidence - Interview with Jenny VeranoJenny Verano: “I learn and apply the knowledge to my own life as well as in helping others to improve the quality of their existence. Today I learned about the manipulations of the ego and how it can affect my relationship with the people I love. Now that I have that awareness I can change my behavior, control my emotions and reactions, so in return I will get better responses from those around me and improve our relationship.”

Instead of saying I should workout I say: I must workout because it gives me loads of energy because

  • my day will be more pleasant, 
  • and I will be more comfortable in my skin and clothes,
  • on top of that, I inspire others around me, to be more active and healthier.

I can go on and on with reasons why I must workout until I am ready to leave the house. Funny enough I have noticed that initially, I do not need to feel motivated to do the actual workout, I just need to find the motivation to get to the gym. Once I am there, well, there is nothing else to do and there are a lot of people making it look so easy!”

Klaus: “Thank you so much for sharing this technique and your experience with us! Even if the daily successes are only small. The compounding effect will create a huge breakthrough after a time! It is said, that Einstein called compounding the 8th of the earth. I guess you are looking forward to the result and enjoy the progress along the way.

Because this builds confidence to create the life you are dreaming of.”

The content of this video about How Self Love Helps, that touched me the most:

  • To love yourself is really hard work.
  • Mostly we have one aspect of our selves, that we don’t like. And we look at it through a magnifying glass. Accept it, change it if you can or don’t focus at it anymore.
  • Here is an easy exercise to love myself unconditionally, because I am the most valuable person in the world. Look in my mirror and give me all the love by telling myself 20 times:

“I love and accept myself exactly as I am.”

You probably want to write this on the mirror in your bathroom.

Mindset about money

Mindset About Money

How to get a beneficial mindset about money

Build a basis for your wealth

There are 3 factors about your mindset about money that influence your financial situation:

  1. Mindset – what you believe about money
  2. Strategy – your plan to manage it
  3. Actions – what you actually do about it

Mindset about moneyIf you want to change your financial situation you need to master all 3 disciplines. But your mindset has the biggest influence, about 60 to 70%! The actions you take, have the lowest influence, about 10 to 20% and this is where most people spent the most attention to. But as long as they have a fixed mindset or false belief about money, they will sabotage their actions. Due to that, let’s start with the mindset.

If you read the article “Escape“, you may remember that you can believe what you want and that everything you believe is your truth: So whenever you think “money is the problem”, it is your truth that money is the problem! I think this is not a very beneficial belief for anyone.
Whenever you think “money is the solution”, money is no problem anymore. I consider this a much more beneficial belief or mindset. So let’s take a little step today moving in this direction.

Your individual truth

Everybody believes something different, so everyone got his own truth. This is due to your individual perspective, culture, education, experiences, likes, and dislikes. Some of our beliefs help us and with some of our beliefs we limit ourselves.

So the questions are:

  • How do I recognize a belief which is not beneficial?
    Each belief that shows us, that we don’t love money limits us in getting our finances sorted out.
  • How can we change our mindset (what we believe) into something which is more beneficial for us?
    There are 3 ways to change what we believe:
  1. Stories that show the opposite of what I’m currently believing and that draw the picture from a different perspective. This is what I am doing when I’m sending you a link to one of the videos.
  2. Incantations, I will come back to that later, because this is the easiest way, to do it by yourself.
  3. NLP-process, which is similar to a guided meditation. NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. You find an example below, which is about changing your mindset about money. It shall help you to imagine your blooming and wealthy future. The best time to listen to it is before you fall asleep, and if you are falling asleep during listening, it doesn’t matter, just listen to it tomorrow and the day after again and again, enjoy!

You might want to listen to it with headphones for better concentration.

I Dreamed a Dream

I Dreamed a Dream: Speed vs. Direction

Most of the time we are in a hurry to make faster progress

I dreamed a dream, but in which direction am I running?

Often we consider speed as more essential than direction. If speed is more quintessential than direction, we most likely will be ending up earlier in a situation we don’t want! That’s why I keep doing the following exercise over and over again, on average about once a month.

“What is a target you really want to reach?”

You might think: “I dreamed a dream”, but be honest with yourself, dig deeper into what is missing the most in your life, what do you dream of? Make your dream bigger, make it amazingly big. Imagine your dream in blooming colors, turn it into a target by writing it down as precise as possible, be specific, put a date, a value, numbers, and facts to it to turn it into a target, because dreams are fiction, targets are a fixed point. The sharper your description is, the better it guides you toward its way.

To do so, put yourself in a cozy position. Have something ready to write it down, listen to some inspiring music or choose complete quietness. If it helps you to think freely, choose a point with a good view into the distance, over the ocean, which represents your future, e.g. at the beach, from a balcony, a mountain, an elevated outlook point, …

Give yourself as much time as it needs, at least one hour on your own. There is no rush to find your target. Think, imagine, and write it down, keep on writing until you cannot describe it any more precise and blooming. If you think you are finished, ask yourself:

“And what do I want beyond that?”

Write it all down. Writing it in the mobile phone notes app works the best for me, because I have it always with me, and I can re-read it each time I am relaxing, want to refocus or when I have the feeling I might get off track. Additionally, I can re-edit it,  to increase its attractiveness by describing it even more blooming and colorful. By doing so I stay focused and my fix point becomes more energy.

I am not promising you that just thinking about it will bring your there, you got to take action! Just running without a target lets you run very efficiently in circles, never bringing you to the point where you want to be. But taking action after thinking about your dream and focusing on your target, helps you to take more effective steps.


Nor I promise you that you will have the everlasting ultimate pleasure of achieving your target. But the good news is:

You shall have a lot of fun already on the way
because happiness is based on growth!

Thinking Time

Thinking Time – Think First Then Act – Work Smarter Not Harder

Thinking Time

Today is the most essential day of your life.

Thinking time is the most essential time of your day.

Thinking TimeThat’s why I want to share my questions, for which I am finding answers every morning (before I get up) and write them down:

  1. What would I do today if I died tomorrow?
  2. What would I learn today if I lived forever?
  3. How can I love myself and the world better?
  4. Which action will I take today to move in the direction of my major goals?
  5. Which of my dreams can I make even bigger and initiate the next little step in its direction?

This is actually a priming exercise, which serves you with new answers to the same questions, almost every day. It gets you out of the dilemma of having only two choices: Yes and no, black or white or move on or stop. By the end of the week, you can choose which answer serves you the best.

What are your thinking time questions?

The freedom to work from wherever you want

At some point in life, we will have to make some decisions, that will affect our being. We belong either to the group of those who want to increase their wealth, expand their possessions and increase their status or renounce everything material and live only for life itself. Our social system and education suggest that only these two ways are possible. But remember, we always have the freedom of choice, to find and go the alternative way. This is not an ‘either-or’ decision. Being and giving are not mutually exclusive. They instead result in economic success, which arises as a natural and logical consequence.

About the author Klaus Forster

Music Dream Maker and Author Klaus ForsterI, the music dream maker Klaus Forster, was 44 years old when I founded my company Rooms4Music in 2009 and started business operations in 2010. It is a typical “old economy” business, where I rent commercial space, in a very special market niche. I rent large spaces, which no longer meet today’s standards and rent them out to bands and musicians as rehearsal rooms and recording studios. In fact, my business is nothing but a real estate agent and facility management, with the only difference being that my tenants are musicians.

At the same time, I was a caretaker and receptionist. I took care of the vocal equipment and amplifiers during the opening hours, set up the rehearsal studios and filled up the refrigerator with drinks.

In no way, I ever imagined that this business could be automated or virtualized in any way. I had to be present on the spot for thousands of reasons. I spent many hours every day at the rehearsal studios, and I was continuously thinking about the possibilities of a structural improvement in this direction, which was always working in my subconscious mind.

Fortune or Focus?

Vision: In 2022 the most successful German bands will come from StuttgartFortunately, I came across a book by Stefan Merath, that gave me a very special entrepreneurial way of thinking and helped me to develop my company vision “By 2022 the most successful German bands will be from Stuttgart”.

Over the consequent years, I implemented most of the strategies and methods described in the book in my company. After a period of time, I was ready to take one week of remote work each month. At the same time, I discovered that traveling and the freedom associated with traveling were much more important to me than the music I originally wanted to support with my rehearsal studios.

Lessons learned

Even if your dream seems like an illusion, imaginary or almost unreal, do not dismiss them! Within them is your true direction. Even if they seem remote from the “real” world, the core that dwells in them is what you long and strive for.

Start with a great goal that seems almost unattainable to you. e.g. like my vision that “By 2022 the most successful German bands shall come from Stuttgart”. Your dream should be so attractive that it will give you drive and energy even in difficult times and will always give you the direction you want. Even if you cannot see the future because of the many tasks that lay ahead. Always live your big goal, your BIG PICTURE is worth everything. Always remember, concentrate on your vision, anchoring this goal in your heart. Daily!

Networking at Dream Beaches, The Freedom of a Digital Nomad’s Life


Just letting go and taking some time out seems to many self-employed and entrepreneurs an impossible dream: Yet without it, they sabotage the business altogether!

For Klaus Forster, fate had to start the turning-point of his life: after the death of his brother-in-law, the independent pro-renegade, dropped everything to stand by his beloved sister. From his own experience, he describes how he learned step by step the full benefits of a digitized world, automating business processes and having a happy life in harmony with his work. A key experience was a workation in Bali, where he quickly moved his home office to the island to exchange knowledge with other self-employed workers, on a joint holiday and to get closer to his own vision, distancing himself, from the otherwise mundane tasks of his everyday life.

In his book, he gives valuable tips and encourages self-employed and entrepreneurs to be inspired by his story.

How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business

I was listening to the audiobook “The Road Less Stupid” and I enjoyed it because it added a lot of new ideas to my entrepreneurial thinking time. Due to my big surprise, I found the question “How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business” in it. Anyway, I spent some of my thinking time on it.

How to Ruin Someone's Life or Business
Today is the most essential day of your life. Thinking time is the most valuable time of your day.

One controversial question about how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business I got out of it is:

“If I would be my competition:
What would I do, to create the biggest damage to my business?”

It means: My own company is A, and my competition is B. What would I do, in the role of company B = my competitor? If I would be company B, what could I do, to damage company A’s = my business?

The first thing to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business that came to my mind was not very charming: “A shit storm on Facebook” 😮 So I posted the following question to the members of my mastermind group:

Klaus Forster:
The best thinking time question I got today is: If I would be my competition, what would I do if I’d be my competitor to create the biggest damage to my business?

This started a lively conversation about it with a lady, who was working for television. Where they need to attract a lot of attention. Due to the fact, that bad news is selling better, they need to come up with bad news.

Let me share her story about how to ruin someone’s life or business:

It kinda remind me of my argue with one of my producer long time ago, probably 14 years ago. So one day our competitor TV series got into number 1. My producer said “So what can we make to take them down?” My reply was I don’t want to create something to take someone down, that is not a good intention. If I want to create something my intention should be to make something good that people can enjoy and add value to their life.

He was angry. So we created something and we only managed to get into top 10. He was even more angry when my other TV series, which I made with another TV company made it to number 1. He thought I paid more attention to the other company.

Thinking it from a different perspective about  how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business:

“If I would be my competition:
What would I do, to create the biggest damage to my business?”

The truth was, when I created that TV series I put all my heart into it. I did my research about the hospital, medical doctors, met survivors, that was why the series seemed real and touched many people’s heart. The story was about a teenagers having leukemia having to deal with her sickness. Her family breaking down because of it, her boyfriend and friends going away. And at the end she realized, that the only person that will stand up is herself. And when she finally did, it pulled all her beloved back. Because they look up to her. So for me what important is your intention, success, attention, everything will follow.

The reason why I put all of my heart was because the producer had the same vision of creating something to add more value to life, not to take someone down. So we did what we could to make it good by spending time on research and stuff.

Other mastermind members added to these thoughts on how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business

  • I like that intention and believe, that if you go around trying to damage others, you damage yourself, in the long term.
  • Yes, there is no point of going out, to taking one down.

Klaus Forster:
I agree, and it is NOT the direction I like to think 🤔 either, because it NOT conforms to my business ethics. Because I think it is not a good idea at all to ruin someone’s life or business. Even though, I want to encourage you to keep on thinking about dirty tricks, illegal or non ethic methods!

It is NOT at all about implementing these ideas, but rather to find the real weak point of your own business. So that you can act on it.

  • I see, now I get it, it is more thinking of what your competitor could do to damage you. So you can improve in that area.
    Good thinking Klaus, thank you for making us seeing this.

Switching perspective on how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business

Switching the perspective really gave me some good inspirations, which are worth thinking about deeper:

  1. “How to get as much attention as from a shit storm?”
  2. “How can I provide more customer benefits by doing it?”

After thinking about that for a while, I came up with the ideas:

  1. Posting something, that is so funny that it goes viral, instead of a shit storm.
  2. Sending a test buyer to my competitor, instead of sending one only to my business.

So I would be able to create positive attention and to get the information, in which field we are doing worse than our competition?

Before I stepped into my competitor’s role, I was only able to think a test buyer checking my own business. Changing into company B’s perspective, enabled this idea. Doing this, I can learn about the customer experience they provide. Which brings me nearer to the answer to the initial question. So please, hare your ideas about how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business in the comments below.

Probably you are curious why I chose the almost misleading title: How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business. The reason for it is, some considerations about …

How to Ruin Someone's Life or Business

the search engine optimization for this blog. After checking the most frequently used keywords in my initial text, I found out that business, competition, and damage were the most frequently used once. So I put them in Google Adds keyword planner and played around with some phrases that contained these words.

Entepreneur SEO

One suggested phase was: How to Ruin Someone’s Life. It is getting seared for between 1.000 and 10.000 times a months and has low competition. Further, I considered this issue as controversial, that it has the chance to go viral. And many people will read it, and – hopefully – benefit from it. So without doing anything bad to the competition, I implemented both of my ideas from my thinking time about in this blog.

Review on “How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business”

(Sept. 20, 2018) Three months after publishing this blog, I analyzed with Google Webmaster Tools which of my pages and blogs are appearing the most frequently in the google search results. And it turned out, that this one appeared most frequently! It also had the highest click rate. But I learned that the visitors of this blog stayed about 2 minutes on average, which is about 40% below the average time of the pages. This only lasts, to read half of it. And that almost all visitors left my webpage without referring to another page of it. So I learned, that I need to make the first part of the text more appealing. And that I need to offer more value to the visitors of the blog, by adding links to other related issues on my webpage.
