10 Laws of Success
10 action based principles for success in study & life
There are 10 Laws of Success, action rules, that guide the students and adults to success in their education, parenting, careers, relationships and life. These help to implement the core learning and life skills and help the prime directives of the unconscious mind to form new habits and behaviours for success. Eventually a base of inner happiness grows that is durable during tough times, this is very special and makes the effort well worth it (Law 10).
Below there are two summary videos about these 10 Laws of Success. One is with the suit version for parents and school principals with the backdrop of an iconic current world rolemodel of good leadership (Law of Success No 9: Role-models and Leadership). The other is with the wild biting cockatoos for the students to watch, observe and learn how their unconscious mind works as I relate to these 100% wild unruly animals with the learning state.
10 Laws of Success Summary
The first 5 laws are stated by Arnold Schwarzenegger from his motivation speech video (shown below). Because he is a great role-model his rules are used in this framework. Role-models assist us in achieving our goals faster. Hence role-models are Laws of Success 9. Tap the links to read and watch me explain each rule individually, with wild biting cockatoos. I often explain how each rule fits into the StudentSuccessTutor framework.
Law 1: Vision: Where are you going. Activate your right brain and unconscious mind.
Law 2: Think Big: Aim big to learn and stretch yourself.
Law 3: Ignore the Nay-sayers: How to use negativity from others to help motivate success.
Law 4: Work Your Ass Off: Apply, apply and apply. Yes, that's Arnold's exact words (not mine). This resets your unconscious mind and maximises learning.
Law 5: Give Back: When you give back you grow and learn more. It feels good to give back. Feeling good is success.
Below is Jason's additional 5 Laws of Success to make it doable for everyone. To be included as a law here these Laws 6 - 10 have to assist with developing happiness and joy, which is a result of being consciously in the learning state. These next laws make success methodical, practical and as fast as possible.
Law 6: Balance: Balance is required for long term success. It requires all areas of your life working nicely. No burnout or crashing.
Law 7: Community: A community of Yay-sayers and support helps you excel faster. It's the antidote to the Nay-sayers.
Law 8: Your Uniqueness: What are your gifts? We are all unique, this is your gift to the world. Find it and develop the real you. When you are naturally yourself it greatly assists with feeling peaceful and being happy, no pretending to appease others.
Law 9: Role-models & Leadership: Who inspires you, how do they do it? Watch and try it. Then show it by being a leader.
Law 10: Mastery: To live in the learning state by default, the natural habit. It is a life of resourcefulness, peace and Joy! Reclaim your birthright.

Law 1: Your Vision
Law 2: Think BIG
When you aim big, it gives you that reward of learning and growing. This is what keeps your neurology working and helps you to live in the learning state. The brain is a muscle, stop using it and life will dull down and your brain and neurology will atrophy. Tap to get back to summary
Law 3: Ignore Nay-Sayers
The unconscious mind's prime directives (the rules) mean that Nay-saying has an impact on us. The unconscious mind is like a 5 year old child. It wants to serve, to be happy and help the best outcomes for everyone. Our unconscious really is benevolent, to be a good human being is its natural drive. The biggest kicker with the prime directives is it takes everything personally. Thus Nay-saying does hit the unconscious mind. It is very important to be vigilant of it and consciously action something in your own consciousness to reverse it. To let Nay-saying knock you is literally letting your inner 5 year old be beaten up. The deeper areas on the brain are activated into fight flight response from Nay-saying, this is hard to change, but the skills taught here can do this. This all ties into the StudentSuccessTutor framework to help you function at your best.
Arnold and I both say turn that around into motivation. Unfortunately negativity caused motivation of 'I'll prove you wrong' is based in a negative emotion, a derivative of anger. Anger is the emotion that says 'something needs to change here', and it provides the energy to perform it. Therefore anger based emotions are very useful to give this message and the energy to do something useful about it. The hard bit is to stay state aware and not resort to automatic bad behaviours with anger, hence the life skills taught here help develop your emotional intelligence. It can take you forward to your vision (law 1). The best solution to this is Law 7: Community, find some Yay-sayers.
In this video I explain how Nay-saying is normal human behaviour. It is tied to our survival instinct which is more powerful as an influence than our good natured humanity. The cockatoos demonstrate this with how they compete for the seed in my hands. However the unconscious mind takes everything personally. This is a prime directive, so it is still taken as a negative unless it is re-framed or changed consciously.
To be given encouragement, useful feedback or even just to be heard is a very powerful positive force in assisting achievement of any goal.
I have always been a trail blazer. I can't but help take anything to a new level, that is my uniqueness (Law 8). The about me page lists a few of the things I have done to stretch past the envelope of accepted knowledge.
It's no small task to pose a theoretical extension to Carl Gustav Jung's Individuation process. However, that is now embodied in the core of this service, and why Law of Success 10: Mastery exists. I ignored the Nay-sayers and just embodied and lived it. I now have 18 years of observations and experiences that confirm I was correct about the Individuation process and what happens to a person during and after that profound psychological shift to wholeness. The result is the Student Success Tutor framework, which is explained in that video how everything in this website interconnects.

Law 4: Work Your Ass Off
When in the learning state coincidences, or flow as some term it, are all to common. There is a large number of videos now where I get bitten or birds fly away as I think or say something negative. At other times they move exactly where I want them. They really do sense it and just act it out.
For those of you that have a cat, how often does a cat do what you ask? These wild animals do what I ask (or just think) more often than a domesticated cat will.

Making it methodical and practical
Jason's extra 5 Laws of Success
Law 6: Blance
We can sometimes be highly driven in one area of life but not others. This points to what interests us, or what we may be avoiding. It pays to take a look at all areas of your life to check and evaluate if there are any imbalances. What are the consequences of the imbalances is important to know, then change it if needed.
When you are in the learning state your neurology, while activated fully, is also at rest. This helps prevent stress, it even reduces it. This then gives you the ability to achieve more and keep going for longer.
Balance needs to be considered throughout your academic year if you are a student. When are you going to fit everything in?
Law 7: Community
This video is delightful with how I literally stroke and handle these wild cockatoos. Watch how they as a community go into the red traffic light and all fly away! But they come back fast as I am safe. Hopefully you have a community that helps you, like these birds do as a group! If not then set a goal (Law 1: Vision) and look for it.
Two cockatoos even do a little dance for us, its lovely to watch. Notice what happens after and who gets access to the seed in my hand. This movement is repeated in a few videos.
Success can be fun especially when you have people who support, be positive and keep you focused. Yay-sayers are the antidote to what Arnold Schwarzenegger calls the Nay-sayers.

Law 8: Uniqueness
Individuality is often squashed in our community and society. Education systems like conformity so they can teach content one way, and use standardised assessment tools. But we all have different ways we learn, share and thrive as a happy contributing member of society. Finding this uniqueness is key here at Student Success Tutor. In tutoring / coaching we will certainly look for your inner abilities and see how these can be used. It is important to find avenues to grow and use these. This helps activate more of your neurology, to help you in the standardised education systems.
Notice how I treat this biting Cockatoo, firm but loving. I treat the Cockatoo like I describe how best to talk to the unconscious mind; like it is a 5 year old best friend, brother or sister that you love. It keeps coming back and is determined! The bird acts out the Laws of Success 1 to 4 to perfection! It is persistent and calm and keeps its eye on the goal (the seeds).
Also of special note; in this video at one point this unique biting bird climbs up my chest. I then wrap my arm around it so it is restrained and pinned to my chest. Because I am in the learning state and I am feeling caring for it the trapped bird stays calm.It does not go into the fight-flight survival response. It just makes its way out calmly and sits on my shoulder. This is a great example of how the learning state affects everyone (humans and animals) in that environment.
If you re-watch this video a number of times, you will see that while this Cockatoo bites me it is subservient to the other parrots. The other parrots boss it away, and it moves back to being on my shoulder. Does this remind you of anyone you know?
People that are bullied often behave this way (and that bullies have often been bullied prior so they then behave that way to others). This may also be a young bird. The young King Parrots often bite as shown in my other videos. These birds show us ourselves. We do behave just like them, but our human complexity makes it less obvious. That is the magic these animal videos teach us. They give us a chance to see ourselves in a new way. When we see these nuances within ourselves we can then change them to a better response and new habit with practice.
Each of us has something to offer; what is it you have to offer with your uniqueness? Then how do we develop that and take it out so we can be passionate about sharing our abilities. Tap to get back to summary
Law 9: Role-Models
A role-model can be anyone who embodies and has something you want in your life. Role-models can be a friend, family member, teacher or a world stage personality like Jacinda Ardern, Serena Williams or Barack Obama. A role model may just represent one skill set you aspire to be such as sporting abilities, their ability to communicate and or handle crisis situations smoothly.
This mural represents the goodness and caring that we all can embody. This goodness and leadership is natural to our unconscious mind. All we have to do is come back to our natural birthright, as the unconscious default (Law 10: Mastery). We will then naturally behave this way. I term this default the learning state in this website. The framework video explains the psychology and neuroscience as to why this is the outcome.
If you want to succeed fast the best way is to look for a role-model. Then research them, find out what they do and how they do it. The next stage is then to try and live that. This is the second half of the law, leadership. Firstly is to be a leader of yourself and your unconscious mind, to learn that new habits and skills. Then to share that, to be a leader and share it with others through demonstrating it. This will give you feedback to further improve what it is you are working towards.
In the video I discuss role-models. I share how I handle Cockatoos that are biting my ankles and hands through using these core life skills. Ask yourself; who do you want to become?

Law 10: Mastery
Anyone can do this (unless there are medical and clinical issues) as long as they want to. For some this needs encouragement or nurturing, for other like Arnold Schwarzenegger they have a natural abundance of these qualities. Usually it is a matter of practising these until the results are experienced.
My personal research concludes that to set the default habit of the unconscious mind to the learning state can be achieved within 5 years, if the laws of awareness (the framework of this website) are applied correctly. I did it in 5 years once I knew what to do. I was as driven as Arnold was, but in the direction of living in the learning state. In my observations of myself and others over he past seven years (since 2013) I have yet to see these laws fail. It is mostly the personal application to these laws that determines how fast their default habit resets to the learning state.
I also discuss the process of mastering the unconscious mind, which is this mastery process.
The aim with the personal tutoring / coaching is to engage participants actively in this mastery process. This will develop these core skill sets.

But something is missing....
The framework page video explains simply (and with detail) the full picture of how all these different aspect pull together. The combination of the core life skills, the whole brain learning techniques, Law Zero and these 10 Laws of Success make a solid practical framework to help you.
I boldly state in this website that this process is mathematical. This gets the Nay-sayers excited. Yet the evidence is the Nay-sayers don't live by default in the learning state as they never applied this framework. It took me 5 years, once I knew what to do.
The math of Arnold's 5 laws are correct. I had a big vision, I was relentless (worked my ass off) with my state awareness and learning state consistency. Arnold did this to win his Mr Olympia & Mr Universe titles, his keynote speech discusses this clearly. Roger Federer does the same to be one of the top tennis players ever. I ignored the Nay-sayers. I studied the role-models, I had coaching. All 10 Laws of Success help give guidance.
We all determine what is good enough for ourselves. This framework here will help students be successful in the fastest way possible. It is designed to maximise their memory, resourcefulness and reduce stress in a way our human neurology and unconscious mind works. The quick fix is here, but it takes effort. Sorry, Law Zero states self-responsibility is required for action. Arnold says this differently in his keynote speech, only the person who discovered gold in California had success without working for it. If you have any questions, please contact.
