The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2010-04-21T06:55:41Z Fancy that. A GPS for life...it's Kia Ora New Zealand. 2010-04-21T06:55:41Z fancy-that-a-gps-for-life-say-kia-ora-new-zealand This story was originally published in the business section of the New Zealand Herald website by Diana Clement - Climbing to success requires plan of action. Rowdy will be making a television appearance on Tuesday the 27th April, tune in to see him broadcast live across New Zealand! Only 5 tickets remain to see him live at the Get Real seminar in Auckland - register here now or contact the Get Real crew for more information! McLean gets hot under the collar about the "cotton wool society" we live in and how it holds people back from success. People also handicap themselves by listening to the "dream stealers". These are the people that say: 'it can't be done'. They're the people that said Mt Everest could never be climbed. Then they said it couldn't be done without oxygen. And when that failed a woman couldn't do it, and nor could a blind person. If everyone had listened to this defeatism talk, Everest would never have been climbed. He's full of good practical advice for people who find themselves held back in their career or life. For example, procrastination and perfectionism are poison in Rowdy-speak. "People say 'I can't do it today', 'I will do it when I get time', or 'it has to be perfect'. The trouble is we live in the fastest generation ever." McLean believes instead in going ahead and testing ideas. Another Rowdy-ism is to ditch your labels. Just because you have a label for not being dedicated or even being a whinger, it doesn't mean you can't ditch them, by either moving on to a new workplace and starting afresh, or simply reinventing yourself in the existing one. "We go through a process with people of unpacking their backpacks and repacking them and getting rid of all the stuff they are carrying around, which is not useful." McLean was brought to New Zealand by the relatively fledgling local branch of Thought Leaders - a community of people who exist to 'inspire thinking and facilitate conversations that shift thinking on the planet'. The theory of Thought Leaders is that there are few platforms where talented individuals can develop or share their great ideas."Original thinking rarely comes from collectives. And, although inspired thinking often happens in isolation, it rarely happens in a vacuum. An idea needs an audience, like fire needs air," the organisation says in its marketing material. McLean, who has been a member of Thought Leaders in Australia for six years says he finds the members a great network of people to brain storm with. "The reason I am part of Thought Leaders is it stretches my mind and keeps me growing and developing. The Thought Leaders mindset looks at something and says: "yes and ..." It's not a touchy feely organisation, says McLean. Rather "being clever and commercially smart as well". "It's about the motivation and inspiration of people in business to raise the bar." Members come typically from two areas: Individuals who want to develop their intellect - most likely in a commercial area People in industry who are looking to position themselves with a unique point of difference. www.getrealseminar.com | www.getrealseminarauckland.eventbrite.com Say Kia Ora to success New Zealand. 2010-04-20T06:26:00Z say-kia-ora-to-success-new-zealand The annual series of Get Real seminars will kick off in Auckland next Thursday when Rowdy McLean (aka the Get Real Guy) arrives in town.

Close your eyes for too long and time slips away, forfeiting rare opportunities to close in on your goals. Do you want to risk that? We’re all busy human beings. So busy, in fact, that we’re losing the ability to raise the bar and execute on the important things in our lives. Forget what you’re doing for a second because if you’re looking for success (personally, financially, professionally, whatever!), I need your undivided attention. Think back about 4 months when we promised ourselves that 2010 was going to be our year to lose 10kgs, save more money or grab that promotion you’ve been chasing. Feels like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it? A clear distinction can be made between those people that achieve their short-term goals and those that don’t. The ones that do generally go on to be hugely successful! Don’t despair, I have invested so much time in researching human behaviour that I now know just how to overcome that barrier of goal resistance. It’s called Get Real FAST. It comprises 4 key steps, Focus, Action, Support & obsTacles, to help you achieve that promotion, lose 10kgs or save some pennies. Check it out… Focus – There’s generally more than one thing we want to achieve. But what really sets the achievers apart is their ability to focus on just one thing at a time. Forget the things that just won’t happen and the goals that are someone else’s. Think about what’s truly important to you and hone inon that. Given your goal is achievable, believable and consistent, with a touch of focus you’ll be well on the road to goal accomplishment. Action – There’s a stark contrast between someone who’s interested than to someone who’s committed. You need to be absolutely committed to your goal to make it work. Once you’ve made this switch, write down your goal, describe your goal in detail, define the key action steps needed to get you there, apply a time frame and shout it loud and proud from your personal podium! Sharing makes you accountable, and that’s one of the vital steps in goal kicking. Support – Support is about maintaining momentum and exhausting all the resources that are available to help you progress towards your goal. Doing it solo doesn’t give you hero status; in fact, it makes you more vulnerable to failure. Gather support in the form of information (books, magazines, internet) and experience. People who have been there and done that have a wealth of support to give. Call them, email them and ask them what it was that worked well, and what didn’t. Having someone keep you accountable is a good way to keep the momentum going. obsTacles – There’s nothing good about obstacles. Whether they take the form of a small speed bump or a big brick wall, they only lead to frustration and the possibility of failure. So the answer is, get rid of them! Research shows the biggest barrier is time (surprise, surprise!). Make time by combining activities, e.g. exercise & travelling to work or driving & conference calls. It’s essential you make time to action your goals and ensure they can’t be thieved by other people or commitments. Fancy trying to learn Spanish in a kitchen full of hungry kids! Also, keep an eye out for the dream stealers. You know the ones who love to see you fail. Avoid them at all costs! Either that or use them as an agitator – someone that pushes your button and makes you more determined to achieve your goals. Then you can say, “I told you so!” Being successful doesn’t happen overnight – but it can happen in 28 days with Get Real FAST. For even more sustainable personal growth and success, Rowdy’s Get Real seminars are a stand out. The one-day intensive seminar have been recognised around the globe for providing genuine success strategies that bridge the gap between average and awesome. Registrations are open for the inaugural seminar in New Zealand and Rowdy is offering Kiwis a special introductory price of just $295, so be quick to register, as seats are limited. Rowdy’s confident that each person will experience one, if not many, light bulb moments during the full day, intensive event. So confident in fact, that by lunch, your ticket becomes free if you haven’t learnt a thing or two about creating more successful outcomes. The seminar will be held at the Floating Pavilion in Auckland on Thursday, August 29th - to register, visit www.getrealseminarauckland.eventbrite.com or for more information, visit www.getrealseminar.com or email the Get Real team.Rowdy McLean is the master of getting things done and making things happen.

Get Real 2010 Feeding our desire to acquire - the Get Real Guy shows us how. 2010-04-07T06:58:24Z feeding-our-desire-to-acquire-the-get-real-guy-shows-us-how Rowdy McLean is the master (yes, master!) of getting things done and making things happen. He has guided thousands of everyday Australians to realise their potential and achieve success through his Get Real program - a motivational seminar on steroids! This year the Get Real program is crossing the Tasman to help New Zealanders raise the bar on their success. In life, we all strive to acquire more - more money, more time, more freedom and more fulfillment! Ultimately, we desire to be happy. The Get Real question is ‘what measures are we pursuing to get us there’ and ‘are they working’? Taking the leap into making things happen is not an easy one - without the right resources that is. Leading a more successful life and acquiring more wealth, time, freedom and fulfillment comes down to action. It’s simple - action equals outcomes. We dial a number to make a call. We turn on the television to watch a program. We eat to satisfy our appetite. So, we must take charge if we want to be happy. To fulfill our desire to acquire we must first be crystal clear on what we want, why we want it and how badly we want it. Is it a must have, a should have or a could have? Once we have defined what we absolutely want and what we definitely must have, then we need to develop the right behaviours and habits to make it a reality. We must put in place a series of actions that we follow through on…no matter what! We need to incorporate consistency, discipline and accountability into the pursuit of our dreams. A major component of personal development and acquiring those things that we SO want, does, in effect, come down to the people we ‘hang with’. To be successful, we need ‘hang with’ successful people. This year, the 5 people we spend the most time with will make the biggest impression on what we achieve, what we acquire and how successful we become. Rowdy explains this in more detail during the Get Real program. Ask anyone who’s been fortunate to experience Rowdy, the guru on action, (and success) live and they will tell us that his Get Real system works. It puts them on the right path to creating successful outcomes time and time again. It’s even better when we get to share this light bulb moment in a room teeming with hundreds of other achievers. For the first time in New Zealand, Rowdy will deliver his Get Real Seminar and introduce the art of making things happen and how to get more of what we want. Rowdy has achieved many great things in his personal and professional life. He has played professional sport, is the owner of multi-million dollar enterprises, has contributed to several books including “Secrets of inspiring leaders” and “Top business builders” and best of all, was able to retire by the age of 34! So you’re probably feeling a twang of jealousy, right? Don’t fret, we can all achieve great things by learning from someone who’s been there, done the research and developed a framework that anyone can use to achieve results You can read more about Rowdy and the Get Real program online at the New Zealand Herald or on his website www.rowdy.com.au.
