Personal coaching: Discover how not to be one-dimensional


In our latest personal coaching article International speaker, Peak Performance trainer and business mentor Arnon Barnes tells you to say goodbye to one-dimensional decisions.

Today, I want to share with you something I believe is one of the things that changed my life. I’ve only had this Insight, this big ‘aha’ moment recently, and I think it is one of the main reasons why I am successful, and why today I am a multi-millionaire.

One of the things that I was thinking to myself a while ago, sitting here in my office at home, was “How did I get to where I am today?” I realised that it is all clearly and directly related to my own decisions. The decisions we make in life and in business. And then I started to realise that for many people, the way they make decisions is very one-dimensional. One-dimensional decision-making. Let me explain…

When someone presents you with an opportunity, and says listen to me: There’s an opportunity for you to do ten times the amount you are making or even ‘just’ double the amount of people you are serving now, most people will respond to that opportunity based on who they are and where they are today, in that exact moment. Let me say that again, when people are presented with an opportunity, and they have to make a decision in business or in life, their decision is made based on who and where they are today. Which is very one-dimensional. And here’s the secret. This is what blew my mind when I realised it…

Subconsciously I was not even aware of this, but it is one of the reasons and one of the ways, I believe, I’ve achieved my Financial Freedom. Take a question, grab an opportunity, make a decision. Turn that moment into an opportunity to create a four-dimensional answer.

Now, let me explain what I mean, because some of you might be a little bit confused right now. I know I was at first. When you need to make a decision about life or business, make it multi-dimensional. Ask yourself multiple questions to help yourself come up with an empowering answer.

For example: What does this opportunity mean? Do I want to do this business today or in the long-term? Will that benefit me today? And who I am today? Will it benefit me in a year? Or perhaps, will it benefit me in three or five years from now? What will manifest in the short-term and in the long-term if I do say yes? You see we all live full lives and probably more. I’m just going to keep this simple. We live in the here and now and we will assume we are living in one year from now. Even in three years from now, and five years from now. And that is why I always say to people, make decisions that your future self will look back at and thank you for.
PERSONAL COACHING ARNON BARNES PORTRAITThat is for example one of the reasons why I invested in cryptocurrency. I really went for it in 2018 because I realised what I was sitting on. I predicted what was going to happen and I trusted those who informed me of the opportunity. I knew that if I invested ‘today’ in 2018, that my future self would thank me.

And guess what? I am thanking my past self for making those decisions and doing the research. And so again, if you are going to make great decisions in business and if you are going to make good decisions in your life, then I’m going to encourage you to stop answering your questions one-dimensionally and to look at things from multiple angles before you make any decision.

Let me tell you this: success does not come without some kind of sacrifice and sometimes you have to sacrifice a little bit today, to enjoy the fruits tomorrow. And so to every single one of you reading this, I’m going to encourage you that from now on, when an opportunity shows up, to be multi-dimensional.

It is one of the main reasons why I am successful today. And I believe that it will help you too. As one of my mentors always says, “It’s our decisions that shape our destiny.” So make great decisions!
