December 2013 Updates

December 30th, 2013 by Steve Pavlina

Here are some updates and announcements to polish off 2013. This past year was one of my best ever in terms of personal growth and lifestyle enjoyment, so I’m in a pretty bouncy mood as I share this…

SBI Buy One Get One Free Special – Extended Through January 6, 2014

Special SiteSell PromotionIn case you didn’t notice, Site Build-It extended their 2-for-1 deal until midnight on January 6th, so if you thought you’d missed it, you still have one more week to take advantage of it.

SBI is a service that helps you create an online business, and they’re very good at what they do. I’ve been recommending them for several years now and have been delighted to see many people succeed with them and escape the rat race.

If you just want to make a website for fun and you don’t care about traffic or income, use WordPress for that since WordPress is free. But if you want a web business that actually makes money (to the tune of thousands of dollars per month), I highly recommend signing up with SBI because they provide an all-in-one solution that’s perfect for beginners who want to start earning passive income online. This includes your education, software, tools, resources, hosting, and social support — and it’s very affordable given what they provide. The education alone is well worth the investment.

Also, depending on what country you’re in and its tax laws, you may be able to take a tax deduction for your purchase as a business expense for the 2013 tax year if you get your purchase in by the end of the year.

For more details on SBI, see my full SBI review. You may also want to skim through my SBI holiday post from last year.

Successfulness – January 12-19, 2014 in Las Vegas

In a couple weeks, Rachelle and I will be speaking at my friend Johnny Soporno’s Successfulness workshop here in Las Vegas, which is a weeklong lifestyle makeover program. This is the 7th time he’s running this workshop and the fourth or fifth time I’ll be speaking there. It will be Rachelle’s second time speaking there.

I’ll undoubtedly be talking about 4D relationships at this event, but Rachelle and I are also planning to stretch ourselves in another way.

As I mentioned in my recent post on 4D Relationships, Rachelle and I will be sharing something at this workshop that we’ve never shared publicly before, which is the D/s play aspect of our relationship. This includes demoing some of the things we do to increase the emotional, sensual, and sexual intensity of our connection. We’re not planning on pre-scripting what we share, so we’ll be sharing and demonstrating whatever arises from spontaneous inspiration in the moment.

Johnny’s Successfulness workshop is a highly transformational experience for many people, not always because of the content but often because of the social immersion aspect. Spending more than a week with people who are enjoying happy, fulfilled, socially abundant lifestyles can serve as a major wake-up call and lead to all sorts of active changes.

I very much encourage you to attend if you can make it. And be sure to hug Rachelle and me when you see us!

Awaken the Rebel: Live! – January 18-19, 2014 in L.A. ($100 Discount!)

I’m also happy to share that I’ll be speaking at the Awaken the Rebel: Live! event in Los Angeles in January, hosted by my friend Shereen Faltas.

I first met Shereen earlier this year, and I was impressed by her passion for helping people escape the rat race. I figured we’d end up working together in some fashion eventually, and now that’s becoming a reality.

If you’re tired of being a corporate slave and would like to engage in a life of passion, purpose, and abundance, this is a great way to kick off the New Year.

Best of all, Shereen is offering a special $100 off discount for readers.

For general admission, use the discount code ATRLiveD786 (normally $297, this gets you in for only $197).

And for VIP registration, use the discount code ATRVIP489 (normally $397, this gets you in for only $297).

These discount codes expire January 8th.

Additionally, you can bring a friend, significant other, relative, or co-worker for only $97 more if you’d like.

Visit the Awaken the Rebel: Live! website for all the details. Hope to see you there!

New PhotoReading and Paraliminals Discounts

I’m happy to announce that Learning Strategies (a company I’ve done business with since 2006) is graciously offering all readers major discounts on their flagship personal development programs, PhotoReading and Paraliminals.


PhotoReading teaches you how to triple your reading speed, so you can go through books, including ebooks, much faster than before.

The Classic PhotoReading Course is normally $245, and the Deluxe PhotoReading Course is normally $530. But you won’t have to pay that much…

With this discount you can order the Classic PhotoReading Course for only 4 payments of $30, which saves you $125.

Or you can order the Deluxe PhotoReading Course for only 10 payments of $36, which saves you $170.

For details about these courses, see my PhotoReading review.


Paraliminals are unique meditative audio programs designed to condition your mind for enhanced results, such as increased productivity, greater confidence, and better health. They deliver different messages to each ear simultaneously, and they’re recorded with special Holosync technology that uses binaural beats to put your mind into a relaxed and receptive state. I’ve been listening to Paraliminals regularly since 2006, and I’ve found them very effective.

Normally the individual Paraliminals sell for $29.95 each, and the Complete Ultimate You Library (dozens of Paraliminals) is $809.40.

With this discount you can order the Complete Ultimate You Library Paraliminals collection for 12 payments of $40, which saves you $329.40 off the original bundle price and $658.10 off the individual Paraliminal price.

I own the complete set, and it’s one of my favorite collections in my personal growth library. This is a nice opportunity to get the whole set of Paraliminals at a major discount from the regular price… and to spread the payments out over a full year.

For details about the Paraliminals, see my Paraliminals review.

Both PhotoReading and the Paraliminals come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Setting Goals for the New Year

This is a time when you’re probably reflecting back on the past year and forming your intentions for the coming year. Here are some articles to help you get into the right mindset for setting fresh and achievable goals for the New Year:

Remember that all of my online articles (over 1200 of them), podcasts, free videos, and social media updates are uncopyrighted. You’re free to share them, republish them, translate them, and even turn them into products and sell them if you wish.


For help keeping track of your goals and projects and breaking them down into action steps, I recommend you check out Trello. It’s a free online service that I’ve been using lately to manage a group project as well as some personal projects. This 6-minute video will give you a basic overview of how it works. I’ve only used it for about a week, and so far I’m impressed. It’s very intuitive and flexible, so you can start using it productively within a few minutes. And it’s free. They have a paid version ($5 per month), but I think the free version is more than adequate for most people.

So check it out if you’re looking for something along these lines, and if you come up with some creative ideas for using it, please let me know what you’ve done with it.

I have to give a big thumbs up to Fog Creek Software for including a color blind friendly mode in Trello, which adds stripes to some of the color labels. As a color blind person, I really appreciate this attention to accessibility. Now I don’t have to avoid using blue and purple together. Thanks a bunch for including that, Fog Creek. I wish more software developers would include such a simple feature.

Happy New Year! :)
