Why choose the viking?
Why this? Proven timeless concepts and training principles that the VIKING used to win over the World are just applicable to success in your business!
Why me? My achievements as a VIKING in CONQUERING the World six times through in depth knowledge of anatomy, fitness, physiology and battle make me an EXPERT at WINNING in ALL aspects of life!
Why now? In these times of a global community, nothing relates more to EVERYONE than the human body and its amazing abilities. Just as the VIKING’s introduced the world to revolutionary ways of exploration and commerce, let the VIKING show you how to achieve BOTH physical greatness, and long standing change in whatever field you desire!
One of the unique perspectives Kristian presents on business is that being successful in the corporate world is not unlike creating, developing and maintaining a healthy body. In fact it’s his “Anatomy to success” that demonstrates that the structures of the human body are metaphors for business.
From Kristian’s book, The Viking’s 9 Secrets to Success – How the Viking became a Legend
“In my case I knew I didn’t physically have the best genetics compared to others like the Pros from America. There were actual physical limitations on how big I could make my body. However this was not the reason to give up. In fact I viewed this as an opportunity. I had an advantage!
How could inferior genetics be an advantage you ask? Is it a coincidence that immigrants to Australia are 4 times more likely to be millionaires than those born in Australia? A foreigner without the standard accepted education, grasp of the English language and other advantages to that of a native born citizen, will be more successful. How? Attitude! Imagine the genetically gifted person in the gym, they train, and socialise, they seem to grow no matter how incorrectly they train. I had to work 10 times harder to get the same results. I gave up the social life that others were so used to, and studied every training method to find the ones that are most effective for people with genetics similar to mine.
My attitude was that I had to work hard. I had read about other athletes who overcame great adversities. People like Lance Armstrong overcoming cancer or NBA player Alonzo Mourning having a kidney transplant. I studied people in the business world who started with nothing and became hugely successful and respected the world over such as Chris Gardner, the man the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness” was based on.
The people, who are born into wealth, are rarely able to maintain or grow their fortune as much as the person that started it from scratch. I was hungry. Hungry for knowledge and knew that only hard work would get it for me.”
The Old Viking Laws – How to WIN in Business
The coward believes he will live forever if he holds back in battle, but in old age he shall have no peace though spears have spared his limbs – Haavamaal
Let me ask you a quick question about history. How is it that the Vikings that left no monuments, no structures, no nation or ethnic group, no cuisines and only a handful of texts, are as well known as the Roman and Greeks? There is little proof they existed yet the average person will recognise a Viking long boat as much as the Colosseum.
Today we call that branding! They were heathens, they invaded with small armies. They didn’t play by the rules. They were strong believers in globalisation and bloodshed.
Now with a population barely big enough for a modern city, only 0.3% of the worlds population, they make up of 3% of the worlds exports.With famous brands like Volvo, Lego, IKEA, Absolut, Ericsson, Electrolux SAAB etc.
Their laws and methods are unconventional, bordering on blasphemous, they’re new, they’re old and THEY WORK!
These laws may seem quite simplistic and even obvious. But remember these were written more than 1000 years ago. They were applied to trade and battle in the times of the medieval period. When other civilisations where still killing people on religious crusades, and some of the great super power nations of the world were yet to be discovered or exposed to the outside world. The Vikings had an amazing grasp of what it took to be a great team, great force to be reckoned with and ultimately a society in which life succeeded to flourish and be adopted by other nations.
