Success University - the Review
This is my review of Success University, and a great story too!
My introduction to Success University came at a stage in my life when I was experiencing real change. I've spent the last few years laid up after breaking my back, and haven't really achieved anything - depression, immobility and a loss of self-esteem and confidence plagued me, and I was resigned to a life of pain on benefits - with little to look forward to, and no hope for the future.
I'd visited Ibiza for a week with my parents, and found the heat, and perhaps the magnetism on the island, were lessening my pain and stiffness. I'd also become great friends with some lovely people on the island who said that if I wanted to come back and spend the summer with them, to help me work on getting my mobility back and get rid of the walking stick I've used for 3 years.
On my return to the UK I set out to raise the money I'd need to get back over there and support myself for the 11 weeks I planned to stay. Through selling a lot of stuff on Ebay, including a yo-yo collection I'd built up over 7 years and boxed away safely for another 6 years. It was a difficult choice to sell them on, but I targeted collectors so I knew the yo-yos would be going to a good home.
I raised the money I needed and moved over to Ibiza for the summer. The heat helped my pain, and within a week I was able to stop using my stick. Where I would spend 3 days a week in bed in pain in the UK, I only spent 3 days in bed in 10 weeks in Ibiza! I was able to start walking and swam to increase my strength I'd lost over the years.
The family I was staying with had been friends with world-famous DJ Danny Rampling - he formerly of Radio 1 fame - at the time, Danny had semi-retired from DJing - but was coming to Ibiza to play at the Def Mix 20th Year Anniversary party at Pacha - and we were invited. It was an incredible night - the first time I'd ever been to Pacha - and I got to stand in the DJ box so many of the world's greatest DJs had worked in over the years. What a great experience that was - I've played to thousands working as a DJ, but not at such an esteemed event, or such a world-renowned club!
After the event we went back to the Pacha hotel with Danny, and in the course of conversation we'd come round to talking about getting new businesses set up and some ideas we'd had. Danny passed us a magazine - Empower magazine, and said we'd find it a bit of a revelation.
Later I read the magazine and was inspired by the stories I read, but very cynical - my depression over the previous years had left me with a feeling of being unable to change my situation to any great extent. But I started wondering if it was possible that I could make the changes I wished for, and start working towards the things I would like in my life - freedom from pain, financial security, the chance to look after my parents, and a dream house in the hills of Ibiza.
I returned to the UK a week later in a fantastic frame of mind, ready to escape from the chains that had held me down for the previous years, and had been thinking more and more about the program, so I decided to enrol and give it a try. I signed up, and set to work.
When you subscribe, you get your own web address and 4 sites so you can give the url to people where they can find the information they need to evaluate the program for themselves. That makes it easier because the sites are filled with information you might not be confident of telling people about yourself.
You also get a lead management system, so you can see the people who sign up for more information, and introduce yourself to them - helping them, through the decision making process.
The online back office application also contains resources to help you learn, and help you promote the program. It's also the place where you register for your courses.
What impressed me was the volume of courses available on the topics I wanted - Internet Marketing, Network Marketing, Confidence, Motivation, Health and much more. Each month you can study 10 short courses, 1 month long course, and you also get an introductory boot camp by email, helping you get started most effectively, find your way around the site and meet your upline - the people who'll help you build your team.
You also start the year-long Jim Rohn Pillars of Success program - delivered in weekly portions. This program has been great helping me understand more about what I want, and how to start achieving things I haven't dared think possible previously. Some weeks it can be a bit of work, and makes you think about things more deeply, but I've seen great things happen when I've applied the teachings.
One of the great things about Success University is that your upline is incentivised to help you build your team - you can only reach the highest ranks of Success University if you help others to build their teams. This creates a great sense of camaraderie, and you work with your sponsor - and his sponsor - and his sponsor, right up to the top of the company ranks - everyone's helping everyone, offering motivation, encouragement, ideas to help build the business, and even a sympathetic ear when you're feeling a little discouraged or overwhelmed.
Of course, you can also just join for the courses - which was why I originally joined. As I learned, however, I wanted a business to practice my skills on - and since I was experiencing great positive changes through what I was learning, I started promoting the program - as I knew from my own personal changes that this program really can help people.
I'll continue my review in part 2, published in the next few days, so stay tuned.
