Success is 80 percent psychology
Peter states that our outer-world follows our inner-world. Not the other way around. He thinks that success is ultimately the by-product of your mindset, perception, and beliefs. No efforts can help you attain success unless you undergo a mind shift first. Success is connected to your feeling of worthiness and that is what keeps most people trapped while self-sabotaging success and resorting to procrastination as a safety mechanism to avoid the fear of failing if they try. He educates his mentees to create a healthy mind-shift that allows them to rise far higher than the current opinion of themselves.
Money has nothing to do with your self-worth
To the expert of human behaviors, money is merely a means of exchange and it exists more in the minds than in the real world, contrary to popular belief. Instead of focusing on earning money only, he encourages his mentees to focus on becoming people of value. Unfortunately, many people tie their self-worth to their net-worth which is often self defeating and always fluctuating. True self-worth is related to your inner sense of self-esteem and your sense of purpose and contribution in the world. Many people do not connect to this as they are too busy chasing money and success. They therefore by definition miss out on a life of fulfilment.
Happiness is only a process, not an achievement
According to Peter, happiness is merely a process of thinking happy thoughts and not something you achieve with set milestones. It is an emotion rather than a destination. He believes a lot of people are unable to experience happiness because of their thirst for the good opinion of others which is tied to their inner self-worth. And that, he believes, is the real obstacle to happiness as it is tied in all the wrong areas.
