Mind Over Matter For Success

This is a video that’s starting to go viral in social media that’s a really great example of a mind over matter mentality when looking at your success.

But it’s not just mind over matter. It’s mind over body, mind over challenge, mind over obstacles.

And that applies to ALL areas of life. Whether it be making money, losing weight, gaining knowledge, forging new skills, or anything else that creates growth and expansion.

It always comes down to mind of matter and there is a very simple way to explain why.

Because everything you have in your life right now, this very instant, is the equivalent to your mindset and beliefs about why you can or cannot have it. That mindset and those beliefs will determine if you make that extra call, push up that extra rep, run that extra 100 feet, resist the urge to eat that candy bar, etc…

And it’s the little daily disciplines that add up and start to compound in your life that create the massive amounts of success that is freely available to anyone.

The challenge is, you must have a mind over matter, mind over obstacles, mind over challenge mindset. Because that mind over matter mindset is what pushes you through the fear, uncertainty, and self doubt that everyone runs up against in their climb to success.

As you watch this insanely strong girl complete this ridiculously difficult obstacle course, you can see that she is strong. Not just in her body, but if you watch closely, you can actually see her mind looking for ways that support her belief that she “can” do this. You can see her mind take over and tell her body to shut up and quit complaining about being tired and just keep on going to the end without giving up!

That subtle exposure of the mind over matter mentality she has is why they video is inspiring so many people. Sure it’s really cool that she made it through the very tough course but people are picking up the very faint and subtle shifts she is creating in her mind that clearly state she has a mind over matter mentally.

Her mindset will not let her body, her fear, her uncertainly, or even the physical challenge of her being to small to even reach some of the components of the course! You can see it in her eyes and it’s the kind of true raw power when you develop a mind over matter mentally.

The message?

Develop a mind over matter mentality through simple daily disciplines.

Don’t let your mind be the reason you give up, make it so strong it’s the reason you never will give up!

How To Eliminate Stress And Frustration From Your Life (and Your Business)!

How To Eliminate Stress And Frustration From Your Life (and your business)!

Today I want to talk about how to eliminate stress and frustration from your life and your business.

And what I’m talking about is something called the “is versus ought to” theory.

The theory basically says the your level of frustration and stress that you have in your life has a direct correlation between how believe things ought to be versus how things actually are.

And most of us have some ideas in our minds that say things there shouldn’t be war, or starving children, or such high taxes, or traffic, etc…

And what you need to understand about this is, all of the things you think ought to be different are not helping you elevate stress and frustration in your life. In fact, that’s what causes stress and frustration!

See, every time you think something shouldn’t be a certain way it creates stress and it creates frustration and adds those things to your life versus enabling you to eliminate stress and frustration from your life.

And here’s the thing, no matter what you’re wishes might be, no matter what you think “ought to be”, it’s completely irrelevant. The “are’s” will always be the only thing you have to build and create your success on.

So the real secret to eliminate stress and frustration from your life is just getting to the point of accepting, “It is what it is”.

And here’s a cool little “Tweetable” that you can tweet out:

“Expectation Is The Thief of Joy”

If you expect life to be a certain way, and life is not that way, you’re going to have less joy. And your chances to eliminate stress and frustration in your life are pretty much zero.

So just be okay, tell yourself, “I’m cool with the way things are” and you’ll eliminate stress and frustration from your life AND your business.

How To Peel A Banana Like A Monkey

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know!

Have you ever heard this phrase, “You don’t know what you don’t know”?

It’s such a simple statement but when you exam it, it can change everything about your life.

It can change the level you perform at in business, it can make you a better networker, it can make you a better father or mother, really, it can make any and every area of your life better!

Why?

Because exactly what it says, you don’t know what you don’t know!

You think you’ve got everything on lock-down, you’ve got things figured out. You think you are doing things the best way possible because you’ve been doing things that way for years, sometimes your entire life, and it’s worked so far.

But when you remind yourself that you don’t know what you don’t know, it opens your mind to trying new things in new ways that can make your life FAR more simple.

Things you’d never think about doing better like peeling a banana! I just learned how to peel a banana the right way for the first time in my life and it’s about 100 times easier, it’s faster, and it works way better than the way I’ve been doing it my entire life! Why is it the “right way”? Because it’s how monkeys do it and when it comes to bananas, monkeys are the experts!

So imagine what you could do in your life if you adopted the “you don’t know what you don’t know” mindset and were always open to finding new ways.

Could you make more money?

Could you be a better father?

Could you be a better mother?

Could you be a better spouse?

Could you be happier? Healthier? More successful all around?

Maybe… But one thing is and always will be true, until you DO know, you don’t know what you don’t know!

Stay open to more effective ways to live your entire life and pretty seen, you’ll know a lot more than you did before.

Secrets To Success In Network Marketing

Secrets To Success In Network Marketing

There are a few fundamental secrets to success in network marketing. And they’re both fundamental and secret at the same time. Fundamental because they are required, and secret because they’re hidden in plain sight.

One of the secrets to success in network marketing is to HAVE FUN!

See, many people get this wrong. They somehow mix up this idea that putting your nose to the grindstone is working hard and working hard leads to success. But what most people miss is that the secrets to success in network marketing are putting your nose to the grindstone, are working hard, are investing in training and personal development, and all of those things and more BUT…

Those things are not secrets! Everyone knows that you have to work hard to achieve success. The secret is, finding a way to not take it so serious. Finding a way to make it fun!

One of the most powerful secrets to success in network marketing is learning to make it fun because when you can have fun, goof off a little, play, laugh, smile, and ENJOY the grind, it’s no longer a grind.

When you cultivate a mindset that creates fun and excitement, you are eager to go to work, you WANT to go work!

It seems like such an obvious thing because it is obvious. You’ll always do stuff that is fun to you with less resistance than stuff you don’t have fun doing.

The key here is to understand that you’re going to have to do the work, there’s no way around it.

So one of the secrets to success in network marketing is to make the work fun! Have a blast. Lighten up. Loosen up. Have fun!

The Fastest Way To Success

The Fastest Way To Success

So I’ve been watching this house being built in my neighborhood. And every day I’ve seen a crew roll in, work all day, and leave at night.

And for three weeks this went on but you couldn’t visually see any progress. And if the goal was to build a house, you’d think they were trying every way except the fastest way to success in terms of building a house!

You literally couldn’t see any progress except a bunch of mess and noise. Now what’s amazing is, in the last 2 days it went from nothing to a framed house!

And it got me thinking about how other people see success when they are looking for the fastest way to success.

They see the “overnight success” stories and they read tricks and tips to the fastest way to success but in reality, the fastest way to success is really through spending your time focused on the foundation that success will be built on.

See, once you have a strong foundation, building on it is super fast! And I’m a prime example.

I spent a lot of years trying to fast track it all and you know what? It never worked. It did add to my foundation but really slowly. That approach is nowhere near the fastest way to success, even though it might feel like it is because you can work on that foundation for months or even years and not see any progress, just like this house. But then, one day, when the foundation is complete, it shoots up and looks like another crazy overnight success story.

Everyone loves to see the overnight success story but no one ever really sees what went into creating the foundation that success was built upon.

So you have a choice, you can look for get rich quick programs, search the globe for shortcuts, and spend 5, 10, even 15 years like I did slowly building a foundation or…

You can focus ONLY your foundation (your knowledge, your network, your plan, your skills, your ability, your work ethic, your mindset, your vision, etc) for a few months to a few years knowing you’re not going to see much if any results and then enjoy the skyrocketing success once your foundation is solid.

Both ways work and even though it appears to be the way, focusing in your foundation is by far the fastest way to success you’ll ever find!

The Vision = Create Success

This is an excellent video that was put together as a motivational tool to help empower you to create success.

It’s titled “Vision”…

I say this all the time. We all have a clock. And when we make the transition from life, we have 3 things on our tombstones.

The year we’re born, the year we died, and that little dash in the middle.

That seemingly insignificant little dash is the most significant thing of those 3 things. Because whatever that little dash represents every the did and did not, can and cannot, the adventures, the victories, the failures, the let downs, and everything in-between. That little dash IS (or was) your life!

Now, if that scares you, this video and post should be more important to you and you should really focus on ways you can create the motivation required to create success.

As you watch this video, reflect back on your life, think about the all of the things you wanted to do, said you were going to do, planned on doing, but just didn’t.

See, there are many ways to create success beyond just making money and we all have things that call to us throughout our lives requiring us to create success to make them happen.

It might be about money, it might be about service to others, it might be about nothing more than having a family and creating a simple life. We all create success differently.

I personally have a raging fire in my heart that constantly creates recycles the question, “How is high? How far can you go?” and I’m driven to find that answer.

I create success in many ways in my life just like everyone else does.

So as you watch this video and you see all of the inspiring clips and scenes know this…

The ways we create success might be different but, the process is always the same and everyone of us has our own dash to fill in.

What will your dash mean?

Financial Independence on Independence Day!

Financial Independence on Independence Day!

First thing, sorry about my voice. I’ve been sick the last couple of days so it’s a little shaky (and yes, I’m still out training for my Kilimanjaro climb doing lunges).

And you know, there are excuses for everything and you can either get strong or make excuses but not both!

So today is July 4th, Independence day for America.

So I wanted to send a quick message out to thank all the veterans who made it possible for our country to be free.

I spent several years in the U.S. Marine Corps and it was an amazing experience. And while I was reflecting in independence day I started thinking about what it took for America to be Independent.

And it took A LOT of fighting. It took a lot of work and effort. So much so that people lost their lives in order to gain our independence.

So today, I want to talk about financial independence. Financial independence is going to come at a price. Just like all of the soldiers had to pay the price for Americas independence, you are going to have to pay the price for financial independence.

And you’re going to have to expect that gaining your financial independence will be a fight. You’re going to have to expect to go out there and do some things that most people are just unwilling to do.

There’s an old saying that says, “I’d rather die on my feet than be a prisoner on my knees”. And most people, when it comes to financial independence, are prisoners.

So this independence day, make a commitment that you are going to create your financial independence! Make a commitment that you will no longer accept being a prisoner who does not have financial independence.

The disparity of wealth is getting bigger and bigger. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

It’s getting harder and harder and harder to maintain the same lifestyle we had 20 years ago and 10-20 years from now it’s going to be even harder to maintain the same lifestyle we have today.

Start fighting now to create financial independence so that your future generations have the same opportunities that we have to carry that forward and create generational wealth!

Be safe, have fun, and happy independence day America!

How To Feel Worthy Of Success

How To Feel Worthy Of Success

As I was headed to dinner tonight I took a little time to reflect on the last 13 years…

I’ve been to 65 different countries, experienced epic adventures, stayed in the best and most luxurious places money can by, had first class everything, and the main point…

I never imagined this could be MY life!

The toughest challenge for me was getting to the point I believed I deserved to have success or in other words, I had to get to a place I felt worthy of success.

See, we’re not stamped at birth with a tag that says “you are worthy” of living the lifestyle of a multimillionaire.

But the story that tells us to not feel worthy of success is kind of what gets programmed into our minds.

But it’s just that, a story! It’s a story built from experiences you’ve had in your past or from input from others about why you shouldn’t feel worthy of success.

When you grow up poor most of your life like I did, you find it very hard to feel worthy of success.

The point I want to tell you about how to feel worthy of success is this:

Worthiness is just bullshit we make up!

The deal is, there’s the same amount of money in the world whether you feel worthy of success and become a multimillionaire or if you don’t feel worthy of success and you go broke.

If you decide that you’re not worthy of success somehow, the money just goes to someone else. You just need to go out and claim yours.

And here’s what you have to start believing in your heart of hearts, is that you deserve it and that you are worthy of success. And that’s got to be the recurring thought in your mind. If someone else deserves to be worthy of success, so do I!

So from this point forward, don’t let any thought ever creep into your mind that you’re not worthy of success because you are!

Famous Failures

“Famous Failures” is term used to describe people who failed and were discouraged from even trying but went on to achieve spectacular achievements.

And they are the perfect backdrop that proves it doesn’t matter what other people say or think about you, it matters what YOU think about you. The only thing that matters is who and what you say you are because you ARE who you say you are.

And if that’s too tough to wrap your head around, think of it like this. You BECOME who and what you say you are the most.

If you say you can’t do something, you become the person who cannot do that thing. If you say you can achieve something, you become the person who can achieve that thing.

Look at all of the famous failures in this video. Who do you think these famous failures believed more? The naysayers or the champion inside of them clawing it’s way out through the sledge and dredge of self doubt, disbelief, and uncertainty?

How many undiscovered famous failures do you think there are in this world?

When you think about how many people there are in the world and you focus on their dreams along with yours, and you start to add up all of the dreams that live in peoples hearts, you start to see the world and your role in it a little differently.

It becomes a mission to discover “famous failures” that support you and that you can support as well in doing extraordinary things. A mission to leave mediocrity behind in the pursuit of extraordinary.

When you look at the world as being a world full of potential famous failures with big dreams and you as part of their support system as well them them as part of yours, you step into a new reality.

And it’s a reality where the people who tell you that you cannot do something, or that you’re not good enough, or that it’s not possible for you have no business being in.

If I listened to the “dream stealers” in my life, they would have succeeded and I wouldn’t be living my dream life every day.

If Jordan, Einstein, Ford, Edison, Oprah, Disney, Jobs, or any famous failure listened to the dream stealers in their lives, the world would be a very different place and all of the good that they brought to this world would have been lost in the sea of mediocrity.

There is only one person you need to listen to and that’s YOU! You don’t need permission, or approval from anyone, you need to create a story about you that makes you the person you need to be to get create and live in the life you want!

You can have anything you want in life, you just need to convince yourself of that truth first…

Make Life An Adventure!
