Today we announce the winners of the Knowledge Source Power Challenge. Drum roll please…
Ok, through the first four weeks of the year we ran the Knowledge Source Power Challenge – 8 simple exercises to focus your mind, steel your will, and set yourself up for a full-power year ahead.
So the Knowledge Source algorithm has cranked its gears and given us the following winners:
First Prize Winner
Congratulations to Timbo – You have scored yourself a brand new, top of the line i-pad. Well done mate.
I had a read through all of Timbo’s responses, and I have to say he is a very worthy winner. He was there throwing out lovebombs of support to other people, and was really honest with how the challenges sat with him.
I did want to pick out one question Timbo had about the ‘Know Your Pain’ challenge:
“Jon, I have to ask you, as much as you say we should connect with our pain, isn’t this emphasising the negative? Is this really the way forward?”
This is a really good question, and this is a dance we all have to work with. We have to maintain a positive and optimistic outlook, but this can’t be done by blinding ourselves to the uglier aspects of our current reality – through acts of deliberate self-deception.
Everything needs to be made conscious – our pain, our short-comings, our fears – it all needs to be held with compassion and honesty. Once this is done, then it is time to fall back our faith, and trust that everything will work out for the best.
But that can only happen if we are doing our best to make everything conscious.
So well done, Timbo. Keep up the great work.
Power Challenge Winners’ Circle
Okay, so we have selected another eight winners to join the winner’s circle. Each winner will receive the full Dymphna Boholt Library – 5 books valued at $149.75 . In no particular order:
1. Debra Moloney
Debra’s responses were really touching, and it was great how honestly she shared how hard it was watching the effect of the drought on the farm, and to see her husband still working at 70 years of age, even though it’s supposed to be ‘our time’.
Debra says she’s giving herself permission to dream big about the future and enjoy the benefits. You go for it Debra. You deserve it.
2. Adam Stone
Adam seems to have a very clear focus on how he’s going to get away from his day job and set himself up as full time investor. He also has some great practices in place already. I think he’s well and truly on the way.
3. Gina Scriven
Gina is an artist, and it’s great to see someone creative applying these productivity practices to their craft. Wealth is just one of the areas we are trying to take to the next level. Really what we’re talking about is living a full-power, full-spectrum life. Go Gina.
4. Andrew Thomas
I was very happy to see Andrew’s name in the list. Andrew has already achieved fantastic results, and I remember a couple of years ago we got him up on stage on at the ILRE super-conference as one of our success stories. But he’s not resting on his laurels. And here he is, still dedicated to his own growth and performance. This is the stuff that greatness is made of.
5. Malcolm Gibson
Malcolm promised to give up chocolate for a week. Full props for that. I also loved how grounded Malcolm seemed on his ‘why’. Seems to have his priorities sorted.
6. Jodi Taylor
Jodi shared some beautiful reflections on how hard it can be to ask for help sometimes. She also said,
“I have a property that is perfect for Mark to take on, but have been too scared to tell him about because I don’t know him and I don’t have experience. I don’t want to look like a fool.”
I say, just do it Jodi. Tell you what – I know Mark Rolton. As you know, he doesn’t take just anyone one, but I’ll put in a personal word you, and say that you’ve just completed the Power Challenge, and that you are obviously a woman of commitment and dedication.
7. David Thorpe
David’s triumph over his body was to force himself to wash his car. Bravo. Like a lot of us, David also seems to be getting a handle on his limiting beliefs. This is a powerful start. Once you have identified the problem, the rest is just logistics.
8. Alison Clunes
Well done Alison for recognising that sometimes fear holds us back from taking action, and congratulations on finding a beautiful new partner who lets you practice the art of receiving. Up you go.
So congratulations to everyone who took part. I hope it gave you real clarity and drive as the year began. And I hope it continues through the year for you.
If you are one of our winners, we will email you on the email address you used to submit your answers in the comments section of each challenge. Keep your eyes peeled for a direct email from us.
And congratulations again.
So proud of you all.
