Written by Jason Nesbitt Topics: Books, Deep Thinking, Self Improvement Psycho-Cybernetics

Psycho-Cybernetics – Sounds Crazy

Psycho-Cybernetics…Where to start. This book is just totally awesome. After a couple of chapters I found myself saying ‘this is the best book I’ve ever read’. It’s true, quite a lot of books do get me excited when I get into them, but this one was particularly special.

I found myself writing a lot of notes right at the start of the book. It has very exciting ideas with apparent and practical revelations.

Today we will be talking about the very largely read:

I really hope you enjoy this post as there are some real golden nuggets in here.

Summary & Recommendation

Psycho-Cybernetics is all about the following quote:

The building of an adequate self image is something you should continue throughout a lifetime

It is full of excellent practical acts to build the best self image one can. It has a lot of amazing and inspirational stories and, as someone that is slightly obsessed with self improvement, I can say that it massively delivers on that idea.

Chapter after chapter is a golden gem with such excellent advice and mental activities that can help anyone improve themselves. 

As I mentioned above, it might very well be the best book I’ve ever read. There are so many examples and stories of the amazing implications of thinking positively and ignoring all negative thoughts and things. It is something I will frequently read.

Now, I know you must be eager for me to stop my meanderings and get into the juicy bits of brain work. Enjoy all the hidden gems below.

What Podcasts Consumed Me in 2015?


Written by Jason Nesbitt Topics: Deep Thinking, Self Improvement Podcasts 2015

Podcasts of 2015

A Healthy Addiction

I know, what you’re thinking. The correct terminology is that podcasts are consumed by us. But, I really feel that it is the other way around as I got so hooked listening to these that I must have averaged about 7 hours a week of listening during my commutes & runs.
So, check out my best Podcasts below and please let me know if you love them (or hate them!):

 

The Tim Ferriss Show

Click here now to get the Podcast!

He is my go to inspirational guy and has loads of awesome guests on the podcast – Think Arnold Schwarzenegger, Neil Strauss & Jamie Foxx . He tries to ‘deconstruct excellence’ by asking people about their daily habits and mentality hacks. This is easily my winner of 2015 and has never failed to give me the boost of enthusiasm needed on some dark, dark days.

 

The Infinite Monkey Cage

Click here now to get the Podcast!

This is the very entertaining Podcast by Brian Cox and Robin Ince. Very sciency and very funny. I’m always surprised by just how intellectual Robin Ince is! If you enjoy light and funny discussions around scientific topics then this is the Podcast for you. They cover an awesome amount of concepts and explain it in laymen terms so it can be enjoyed by all.

 

TED Radio Hour by NPR

Click here now to get the Podcast!

This is just super awesome. They cover a different topic each episode and use extracts and interviews from TED talkers. You’ll be inspired, amazed and constantly learning. It is a very well produced show and Guy Raz’s voice fits it perfectly. This is what I listen to when I want to relax more and just drift off into a world of innovation and novelty.

 

We’ll Add in a Bonus One

Tony Robins – Unleash The Power Within

Click here now to listen!

As you can see from the image below, this man is a beast:

robbin

It’s a funny title and super American you will definitely agree that it is very inspiring. Tony Robins has the ability to break life down into very understandable chunks and make anyone feel happy to be alive. This podcast extract is from a book and tour with the title. It includes the importance of positive self talk and actionable ways of nailing life. I definitely recommend listening to this just once to see what impact it has on your life.
Thanks to the talented Emily Smith for reminding me to recommend and post as regularly as possible!

 

Enjoy the listening and keep on learning,

Jason

Book Recommendation #1 | $100 Startup – Chris Guillebeau


Written by Jason Nesbitt Topics: Books, Business, Deep Thinking, Self Improvement

My First Recommendation

I love to read. I love to recommend. I sometimes fear that my recommendations often don’t inspire the amount of action that I intended, so, I have decided to recommend to the Internet as I hear that there might be a couple of people out there using it…

Enjoy the first Nesbitt Web book recommendation below:

The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau

Having recently finished the excellent Nassim Taleb’s ‘Antrifragility’, I can honestly say that this was a pleasantly short read. The $100 startup provides easy to follow steps in a logical order for anyone that wants a coherent how to guide of taking action and creating your own startup. Included are a generous amount of anecdotes and examples from people all around the world. These examples are very entertaining and short enough to hold your attention but I did struggle to relate to a lot of them and gained much more insight from the guide aspects of the book, as opposed to the examples.

I must admit that the title is slightly misleading, as that majority of the startups mentioned in the book start of with higher costs. On a far more positive note, the book joined the ranks of many others that cause me a very beneficial frustration:

‘I can’t go more than 5 pages without picking up my laptop to make some notes or do some work!’

I would definitely recommend reading the $100 Startup if you want a quick fix of inspiration to get working on your world changing idea.

Don’t forget to check out the accompanying website for The $100 Startup for useful resources:

Keep your eyes on the prize (assuming the prize is in a book)
