Hey everyone, I'm Hamzah, currently based in Switzerland. I left my 6 figure corporate job in a big media company last summer after generating over $2,300,000 in media sales in 19 months (I know sounds wild). That resulted in a 6 figure commission that gave me time, location, and financial freedom to go all into my vision. But first I went to Italy for a break and planned my next moves. I’ve been studying and applying self-mastery for 7 years and the results that I’ve gotten in my life are incredible. So, I decided to build my brand by teaching self-mastery on social media, always keeping the ambitious entrepreneur in mind. In 10 months, I grew my YouTube channel to almost 1k subs and my IG to 1500 after posting almost 500 videos on self-mastery for entrepreneurs. Luckily, I built a small but very receptive audience. I started getting amazing messages about how much my guidance helped them. Aspiring and established entrepreneurs started to reach out to me and I love helping them get results. At the moment, I mainly work with entrepreneurs who are at 5k-10k/month and want to scale to 20k-80k/month in 12 months or less through self-mastery. Typically, they already have a working business model or a strategy that would help them scale. But the main problems they face is not a tactical or strategical one – it is a lack of confidence, inconsistent performance, not able to control their mind/emotions and in general lack of clarity in their life that is preventing them from scaling. Essentially, a mindset problem. And this is where I come to help. My mission is to help ambitious entrepreneurs live the lives of their dreams by mastering themselves. I’m interested in self-mastery, philosophy, history, fundamental sciences, psychology, and business. Looking to learn and connect with like-minded people with strong visions and solid principles.

How To End Self-Sabotage In Your Business (In 5 Minutes A Day)
Have you ever felt like you take one step forward and two steps back in your business? Experiencing the constant ups and downs in your business. One week, you are making sales and are on top of your game. But the next week you don’t make any sales and your productivity is close to zero. As if there is a hidden force preventing you from making progress in your business. Why do you keep sabotaging your progress? The root cause is not a lack of business strategy or productivity tactic, it's your self-image. "The strongest force in the human personality is the need to stay consistent in how we define ourselves." –Tony Robbins Your self-image shapes how you perceive the world. And how you perceive the world determines what kind of actions or lack thereof you take. But what is the self-image? The self-image is how you see and think about yourself. Have you ever achieved a new level of success and had thoughts like you don't deserve it? Or have you ever worried about what would happen if you became successful? Here are some factors that cause self-sabotage: - I'm not good enough - Fear of failure - Fear of success For example, self-sabotage prevents you from reaching out to a bigger prospect you know you could help. But because this prospect is outside of your "league", you revert back to smaller prospects. So, what is the solution to this? You have to create a new self-image that aligns with your business goals. But first, you have to identify the root cause of your self-sabotage. Pull up a journal and reflect on why you sabotage yourself. Imagine yourself achieving your business goals. As you do this, notice the negative voice in your head. What does it say? Write down the negative statements and fears. These are the hidden enemies that were secretly holding you back. When you get clear on the root causes, it's time to use the power of visualization. Imagine yourself doing the hard things in your business perfectly. Make the image in your mind as detailed as possible.

How To Break Your Hidden Limiting Beliefs To Scale Your Business (Step By Step Guide)
Most entrepreneurs think a new business tactic is the key to scaling. But the real bottleneck is often a limiting belief, not a new strategy. A step-by-step guide on how to break your hidden limiting beliefs to scale your business: --- For context I've: - studied and applied self-mastery for 7 years - broken my limiting beliefs to close $120,000 deals in my sales career Breaking your limiting beliefs is one of the highest ROI things you can do to scale your business. --- Identify your limiting beliefs Reflect on your inner dialogue when you face a business problem. Notice your negative language patterns. For example, you lose 4 sales calls in a row. What is your self-talk? "I'm bad at sales" You have to know your limiting beliefs first to break them. --- Challenge limiting beliefs "If you question anything enough, you'll begin to doubt it" - Tony Robbins Ask yourself if the belief is really true and if it is serving your goals. Look for evidence in the past, doesn't matter how small. Could be a sales call that you closed a long-time ago. Actively look for evidence of how that limiting belief is not true. This is how you start to break those beliefs that are holding you back. --- Rewrite the belief Create a new empowering belief by reframing the limiting belief. Instead of, "I'm bad at sales" change it to "I'm becoming great at sales" When you reframe the belief, your mind will look for evidence to support your new belief. Psychologists call it confirmation bias. Ever wanted a car so badly that you started to see it suddenly everywhere? There is a part of our brain called RAS (Reticular Activating System) Its job is to confirm our reality based on our strongest beliefs. Understanding this principle transformed my mindset. --- Install the new belief You have to stack proof in your mind by taking action. This is the fastest way to install empowering beliefs. Even if you lose another sales call, look for the slightest proof of success.

@Gabriela Toderean Thank you for your comment. Maybe some parts of my post were not precise enough. When you follow this method, you will naturally identify core limiting beliefs like "I'm not good enough", "I'm not confident" etc. Therefore the goal is to change those few. I'd never suggest to come up with a big list and work through them one by one. That would be insanity lol. Yes you are right, you can directly instill a new identity. But a new identity still consists of core beliefs. Identity change and core belief work go hand in hand. But for people who haven't done this inner work, working on core beliefs moves the needle faster.

If You Are Not Doing This, You Are Seriously Limiting Your Business Growth
All successful entrepreneurs have one skill in common - focus. But the modern world is making it harder than ever to focus. A guide about deep work that helped me 10x my performance in my business: — For context Since I’ve implemented deep work in 2021: - I generated over $2,300,000 in my sales career - Posted over 2200 pieces of content  - 5x my productivity while working on average 5 hours a day  What is deep work? Deep work is when you focus on your most important task without distractions. When you are in deep work, your brain operates at its limits and you can create your best work. This is how all elite performers in any field produce incredible work. — Why does deep work matter? The world is getting more and more seductive. There are so many opportunities and shiny objects fighting for your attention. It is harder than ever to focus on your business. But you only need a few hours of focused work to produce great results. — Schedule your deep work Commit a specific time block in your calendar for deep work. I use a 4-hour deep work block on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 12. p.m. 90% of elite performers do their deep work in the mornings. By scheduling, you train your brain to focus on these periods. — Eliminate distractions Distractions are the thieves of your dreams. Create a distraction-free environment: - silence notifications - work in a quiet space - inform others to not interrupt you It takes your brain 17 minutes to go back to flow after an interruption. It costs too much if it happens more than once a day. — Set clear targets Define exactly what you want to achieve in your deep work session. Clarity is the foundation of mastery. Your brain needs a specific target to work in your favor. For example, "record one loom video in 30 minutes". Otherwise, you get caught up in doing low-value tasks. — Embrace boredom Doing your most important work is not always fun. Practice your ability to resist the temptations of distraction when work gets hard.

How To Use Your Dark Side To Maximize Your Content Creation (Shadow Work Guide)
If you are not using your dark side, you are seriously limiting your potential as an entrepreneur. — For context In 2020 I had -$1000 in my bank account. I discovered shadow work through a self-mastery mentor. I applied these hidden principles and started to change as a person. 2 years later, I generated over $2,300,000 in sales in my career. I’m stating this result because for most of you the money is the measure stick. I found more joy in the person that I’ve become than the financial “success”. Anyway, let’s start. — Why is the shadow important? “Until you make the unconscious conscious it will direct your life and you will call it fate” - Carl Jung Most entrepreneurs are run by their biases. Recognizing and integrating your shadow helps you make better decisions in your life and business. — What is the shadow? The shadow is the dark side of your personality. We unconsciously reject or repress this dark side because they are socially unacceptable. Could be “negative” traits like aggressiveness or perfectionism. Now, let's use your dark side for serious growth. — Step 1 - Identify your triggers. Notice when you react strongly. These emotional responses are clues to your rejected parts. Ask, "What specific character traits am I reacting to?" Self-awareness is the gateway to profound transformation. — Step 2 - Journal Write about the traits you dislike most in others. Often, they mirror parts of your personality that you deny. For example, you could dislike judgemental people. But as you reflect, you also tend to judge people to an extent. Write your discoveries down. — Step 3 - Go deep within yourself Ask yourself why you resonate with certain traits and dislike others. Your internal dialogue can uncover deeper truths about your dark side. Set aside time for self-reflection and ask probing questions about your reactions. — Step 4 - Integrate your dark side Recognize that your dark side is a part of who you are. Use this awareness to adjust your behaviors for maximum growth.

If You Lack Clarity in Your Life or Business, Read This Step By Step Guide (Save this!)
At 25, I felt lost. I always wanted to live life on my own terms and a business that I love. But I was not clear on what I wanted. I knew once I got clear on what it was, I would take action. "But what is it that I want to do for the rest of my life?" This question haunted me for years. In my search, I found a wise mentor who taught me about core values. I did what he told me and got massive clarity in my life. Once I identified my core values, I felt powerful and inspired. For the first time in my life, I had absolute certainty about my direction. - Two years later, I generated over $2,300,000 in sales in my career - Doing work that I love and that impacts over 100,000 people. - I am in the best shape of my life and have tons of energy - Living life on my own terms and helping others do the same I'm not saying this to brag in any way. One of my mentors, Robin Sharma, said, "Clarity is the DNA of mastery." --- Why are core values so crucial? Few people talk about values when it comes to business and life. Core values are the fundamental principles that guide your behavior and decisions. Think of it as a part of your identity, representing what is truly important to you. Most people's core values are subconscious because they haven't done the work. That's why you see the conflict between what you say you want and what your actions tell about what you want. Companies list values like "customer-centric" on their website but act differently in practice. There is no alignment. If you don't define your own values, you will live in other people's values and be told what to do. How to identify your core values "The quality of your life is determined by the quality of the questions you ask." – Tony Robbins Block out 15 minutes for this exercise and answer the following questions. Trust me, it will be so worth in your life and business. --- # STEP 1 - In which three ways do you spend your time? You always make time for things that are really important to you.

How Facing My Fears Helped Me Close A 120,000 USD Deal
533 days ago, I closed a 120,000 USD deal. None of it had to do with a new business tactic. I simply learned to face the negative feelings I used to run from. The technique I'm about to share helped me generate millions in my sales career. But things haven’t always been that way. In the beginning, I was stuck at 0 USD for 3 months. In the 4th month, I sold my first 15,000 USD deal. Then, I got stuck again at 50,000 USD deals for 9 months. Until I finally closed a 100,000 USD and a 120,000 USD deal. Now, you might ask – how did I overcome my negative feelings to see those results? First of all: Can you allow yourself to feel bad? Who said that feeling bad is “bad”? You see, life consists of opposites – dark and light, happiness and sadness. If you are feeling frustrated, angry, or overwhelmed – stay with the feeling. Don’t try to escape it. This is what society has conditioned you to do. “If you feel bad, do something that makes you happy.” “Watch Netflix, eat something tasty, check your favorite influencer on social media.” If you escape, you'll only suppress those negative emotions. You might feel better for a moment because of the rush of dopamine. But you’ll have to deal with those emotions anyway. The wiser thing to do is to confront them, instead of running from them. When you feel frustrated, angry, or overwhelmed — stay in that feeling. Don’t judge yourself for feeling bad. Let the bad feelings in and acknowledge them. I know it sounds strange, but this works. It will feel uncomfortable. It can be a bit painful. But you have to feel through the negative emotions. See how much better you feel when you’ve accepted them in the moment. They are not as bad anymore, right? That’s the power of processing your negative emotions correctly. If you remind yourself to do this every time you have strong negative feelings, your life will change. You see, energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed. This is known as the law of conservation of energy – a fundamental law in physics.

How I Mastered My Emotions To Post Over 2000 Pieces Of Content In 10 Months
Hey friends, I always wanted to create content online but fear stopped me. I studied and applied self-mastery since 2016. My life transformed by learning to master myself. I knew sharing what I’ve learned would help people because I helped lots of people. But I couldn’t hit record on my camera because I feared the judgment of other people. I thought my English was not good enough. I would look like an impostor. “Do enough people even care about self-mastery?” Most people on social media care about making money, looking good, and getting laid. All those thoughts were racing through my mind. But these were thoughts and not facts. I learned this from the book “The Untethered Soul”. It was time to put it into practice because I had a big vision. Helping entrepreneurs live the lives of their dreams by mastering themselves. This was my calling and I knew it deep in my soul. And I could not tolerate some BS thoughts get in my way anymore. I had to control my emotions. Imagine you are locked up with a crazy roommate in a room. He talks all the time about crazy stuff. And the more attention you give him, the more crazy he gets. The same thing happens when you pay attention to the negative voice in your head. When I hit record on my camera, the voice would appear. But I stopped identifying with that voice. I knew that the negative voice in my head would never go fully away. That’s just the reality when you work on a big vision. I just had to deal with it better. So I recorded the videos while not feeling great. I stayed objective and let my negative voice do their thing. I didn’t judge myself for having those thoughts. I didn’t label those thoughts as “bad”. There was nothing wrong with me. Remember, you don’t want to give the crazy roommate your attention. Because if I did that, I would make the mistake again. “It is what it is and I’ll do my thing anyway,” was my frame of mind. In the next couple of weeks, I made the YouTube videos despite having negative thoughts.

How I Perform Consistently In My Business Without Burning Out
I always wanted to perform like the 1%. I have been no stranger to high performance. I studied it for over 4 years. I knew the habits and protocols that increase performance levels. But I struggled to perform consistently at high levels for long periods. Usually, I would have 2 very productive weeks. And then the mysterious week 3 would kick in and I wasn’t as productive. Then when week 4 came I would slowly pick up again. Then followed by 2 great weeks again. And this performance rollercoaster would repeat itself. I mean, I learned all the basic productivity principles. Like setting clear goals, having healthy routines and tracking my progress. So what was I missing? I looked back at what I did in the previous months and noticed a pattern. Around week 3, I stopped doing one thing. Looking at my long-term vision. You see, because I would usually perform great in the first 2 weeks of the month. But then I started neglecting some habits. That was the missing piece. By not doing this, I lost track of what I was working towards. And it reflected in my performance. Less clarity. More overwhelm. Less motivation. More exhaustion. This was my bottleneck. As Alex Hormozi says: “We need to be reminded more than we need to be taught.” I had already defined my 10 year vision. I had a vision board with amazing pictures. I just needed to look at it every day to stay motivated. And if I can stay motivated every day, my performance would stay consistent. In psychology, this is validated as the “Goal Setting Theory”. So every morning I pulled up my vision board and visualized my dream life for 5 minutes. I stuck to that habit every day. My days started with great motivation. The inevitable bad days weren’t as bad anymore. Because instead of distracting myself with social media when things got hard, I persevered. I didn’t do this perfectly. There were still days I slipped up. But those days were less in numbers. And it reflected in my performance levels.

How To Become Extremely Confident (I Went From Making $0 To $2,300,000 In Sales In 19 Months)
In 2020 I was broke and owed my parents $1000 after trying to start a business. I had to drop my ego and apply for a job. I sent over 60 applications and got one in a media business in a sales position. The first 3 months were brutal. I made over 500 cold calls and made zero sales. I got rejected left and right until it became the norm. My confidence was low and I started to doubt myself. I was on the verge of being fired. I had to change my situation, or things would get very bad quickly. In desperation, I searched for a solution. As I was searching, I realized that I had the solution at my fingertips the whole time. But I couldn’t see it. Because I was lost in the daily grind of making my first sale. I forgot what I learned in being deep into personal development since 2016. I got reminded of the power of mindset but somehow forgot to use it in making sales. I went back to the mindset programs that I’ve invested in back then. And looked at my notes. “Reframing! Exactly!” How could I miss techniques like that? Before that realization, whenever I didn’t make a sale, I doubted myself more. Because I let my negative thoughts dictate what not making a sale meant. Instead, I started to use the reframing technique in every sales situation. From there, I still got rejected on some deals, but things started to change quickly. Now not making a sale meant “This is good feedback. I’ll get better at sales. I’ll close big deals soon.” At first, it felt weird saying things like that in my mind. But I was committed to changing my mindset. And honestly, I had no choice because I was forced to change. And it worked. Just as the 3rd month was about to end, I made my first sale. $15,000! I broke through a big limitation in my mind. From there, I stopped doubting myself as much. And started gaining confidence. Did more outreach. Did more meetings. I made more offers. Closed more deals. One month later, I made my first $50,000 sale. Then the sales started pouring in.

How To Know Exactly What You Want In Life As An Entrepreneur (Full Guide)
Hey Contentpreneurs, The biggest problem entrepreneurs face is a lack of clarity. In the last 4 years, I’ve been part of countless online business programs and masterminds. All those programs were designed to help entrepreneurs make more money. But strangely, most of the conversations in those calls were not about making money. They were about personal problems that leaked into the business. Problems like: - Lack of clarity in their business and life. - Not feeling confident in their business. - Not being able to perform consistently. - Struggling to focus on the things they need to do. I noticed this pattern in every business group I was in. And the root cause of those problems is a lack of clarity. If you are not clear on what you truly want in life: - you’ll lack consistency - you’ll lack confidence - you’ll lack motivation - you’ll lack focus So, how do we solve this big problem? STEP 1 - KNOW THYSELF Socrates once said: “Know thyself.” The first step to knowing what you want is to know yourself. But what does knowing yourself mean? Luckily, you don’t have to become a philosopher who deals with abstractions. You can use practical tools like the Myers-Briggs personality test for free. Search on Google for “16 personalities” and take the test. It only takes 15 minutes. You’ll be amazed at how accurate this test is. Take some time to reflect on your results. STEP 2 - DESIGN YOUR IDEAL LIFE After you’ve gained some clarity on yourself, it’s time to dream big. To do this, block a day off and go to an inspiring location. It could be in your backyard, in a nice cabin in nature, or at the beach. Take a pen and journal with you. Sit down in a quiet place. Let go of all the societal expectations on how you “should” live. Let go of all your preconceived notions about what you should do. Let go of all your problems for a moment. Look around you. Take a deep breath and smile. Feel the inspiration and gratitude at this beautiful place. Now, answer these prompts in your journal:

How I Found My Exact Purpose In Life And Business (Full Guide)
Fellow Contentpreneurs, What is my exact purpose in life? This question haunted me for years. I was always very ambitious. All I wanted was to live a life of total freedom with a business that I love. Deep inside, I always knew that I could pull that off even when my reality suggested otherwise. Call it overconfidence or being delusional. I always thought: “Once I know my exact purpose, I could unleash my full potential and live my dream soon.” But the strange thing was that I never seriously tried to find my purpose. I thought I was doing the right things by reading books like The Alchemist, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and Think & Grow Rich. But I was still stuck in finding my purpose. Then 4 years ago, I found the Japanese concept of IKIGAI. From then on my life changed. I went from being lost and making zero sales in 2020 to selling over $2,300,000 worth of deals in my sales career. And I attribute a lot of my transformation to finding my exact purpose in life and business. There are 4 steps to your purpose. If you ignore one step, you won’t find your exact purpose. Trust me, I tried skipping steps and it is not worth it. ----- # STEP 1 - WHAT YOU LOVE (PASSION) List out all the things you love. No matter how trivial it seems. Think about your hobbies, interests, and obsessions. A good way to do this is to ask yourself: “What are the things I can’t stop talking about?” For me it is personal development, business, philosophy, psychology, and history. Look at your YouTube history – what content are you consuming most? There are patterns that give you a lot of clues about what you truly like doing. ---- # STEP 2 - WHAT YOU'RE GOOD AT (SKILLS) List out all things you think you’re good or passionate about learning. Ask 5 people who know you well about what you’re good at. You will be surprised by what they will say about you. This is crucial because how you see yourself is often different from how other people see you.

How Managing Your Energy Instead Of Your Time Will 10x Your Business
If you want to grow your business, stop managing your time. Manage your energy instead. Have you ever had time to do an important project but no energy? So, what was the point of having all of this time when you can’t use it to grow your business? Think about old people for a moment. They usually have a lot of free time. But what they lack is the energy to make the most out of their time. Same in your business – you can have all the time in the world, but it is useless if you don’t have the energy to do the things that grow your business. The better mental model is to think of your energy levels, instead of how much time you have. When I started to plan my days around my energy levels, my productivity tripled. I tend to be most productive between 6am - 12pm. This is where I feel I have the most brain power during the day. Now, yours could be different. But for most entrepreneurs, it is around late mornings till lunch. If you want to get the most out of your days as an entrepreneur, block 4h for your most important tasks. This is how 99% of the most successful entrepreneurs do. It only takes four focused hours to get more done than most entrepreneurs in a week. I’m not exaggerating. It’s not about how much you get done, it is about what you get done. When I started off in my YouTube journey, I used to operate from the old paradigm of time management. So I would plan my days around how much time I had left to produce one YouTube video. I followed best practices in productivity and broke up the project into smaller tasks. Researching ideas, writing the script, filming the video, editing the video, making the thumbnail, and then uploading the video. And then I would start executing the tasks. But then something strange happened. I realized that each task would not only take a different time but also energy. For example, coming up with the idea and writing an outline for the video would take more mental energy than filming the video. With that realization, I optimized my workflow around my energy levels.

10 Steps To Maximum Productivity: 1. Clear Your Mind. You can’t achieve peak performance if your mind is full. Take a sheet of paper and do a brain dump. Get the enemy out of your head. 2. Define Your Values You can’t achieve peak performance if you are not clear on what you truly value in life. Clarity breeds mastery. Make a list of your top 5 priorities in life. For me, it's faith, health, business, knowledge, and freedom. 3. Set Specific Goals You can’t achieve peak performance if you are not clear on what you exactly want. Set specific goals: - 5-year goals - vision - 1-year goals - long-term - 90-day goals - mid-term - Monthly goals - short-term 4. Reverse Engineer Your Goals. You can’t achieve peak performance if you don’t have a clear plan. Break down your goals into projects and tasks. Think like a general – map out your plan on the battlefield. 5. Set Priorities You can’t achieve peak performance if you don’t know what to do and what not to do. Identify your tasks based on importance. What moves the needle? Do this task first. Delegate tasks whenever possible to focus on high value activities. 6. Manage Your Time Effectively You can’t achieve peak performance if you don’t manage your time effectively. Time-blocking is your friend. Block 4 hours of deep work every morning for high-leverage activities. This ensures laser focus. 7. Use Less Productivity Apps You can’t achieve peak performance if you are using too many “productivity” apps. G-Suite can do 80% of most productivity apps. Use a simple productivity stack. - Planning: Google Calendar - Tasks: Google Calendar - Notes: Apple Notes - Messaging: Slack/WhatsApp  Simplicity scales, complexity fails. 8. Prioritize Your Health You can’t achieve peak performance if your health is suboptimal. Focus on basic biological needs. To perform optimally you need: - Good sleep  - Daily exercise - Clean diet - Nature - Good people  9. Implement Good Routines
