“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” – Mark Twain  

Do you tend to agree with popular opinion or are do you typically have an alternate view of any topic?  You know my thoughts on choosing what to do when wondering about a decision.  Look at what the 95%ers are doing and do the exact opposite.  

Why do I react this way?  The biggest reason is once an idea or way of doing things has become popular, all the upside in it is gone.  

By 2007, real estate investing had become very popular.  There were multiple TV shows about flipping houses.  The media was featuring stories about the incredible housing market.  People were leveraging their homes with home equity lines of credit and loans.  People were spending very freely because their house was appreciating so quickly they would be fine to be able to pay these debts.  New homeowners were able to get into homes priced way above their means with interest only loans.

Well you know what happened through 2007 and 2008.  The whole dynamic changed.  The rush of people into real estate now became a huge challenge to the country.  There was the mortgage meltdown as it was termed.  The economy for many sank.  The foreclosure crisis hit.  Overall, the majority did very poorly.  

During this downturn for the 95%ers, who was making money?  The people doing the exact opposite of what the majority was doing.  I know my economy started to take off at this time… and I’m not alone.  As the 95%ers fled real estate, I know multiple investors who made a great living and created generational wealth during this time.  Why was it different for us?

We know the real money and success happens in any opportunity before the masses identify the opportunity.  Successful entrepreneurs get in to ride the wave as its getting bigger.  Once it reaches a sizable height, we know it’s time to look for the next wave before the top of this one curls over on us.  

Knowing this fact is why when you see the masses headed in a specific direction and you are with them, take a minute to analyze what’s going on.  Is the wave growing still or is the lip about come curl over on you and take you under?  

Be aware of what the majority is doing.  Being aware of what the majority is doing is the reason the 5%ers continue to be the 5%ers.  They look for the opportunity where no one else is surfing yet to jump on the next big wave.  Start identifying where the majority is headed and begin searching for other options to create your next success.

“Before I ever knew what the word Entrepreneur was, I realized in America and in the Western part of the world in general, you are given the opportunity to be whatever you want to be. And that is all anyone should ever expect from the Capitalist system. The rest is up to you. 

It’s up to you to educate yourself. 

It’s up to you to learn speaking skills and people skills. 

It’s up to you to try (and usually fail, but to try again) all sorts of ventures. 

The rest is a combination of hard work, being at the right place …at the right time…with the right thing…oh yes…and more (never ending) hard work.” – Gene Simmons  

Do you accept responsibility for what you have or have not achieved in your life?  So many people I meet have an excuse for why any venture did not work… and usually it is far from them taking responsibility for what they did or didn’t do.

One of the most important lessons to internalize for all and especially an entrepreneur is “The buck stops here”.  What I mean is you are responsible for your results.  For everything which needs to be learned or sourced, you are responsible for making sure it happens. 

One of the times I see many people explode their growth forward is when they realize they are the creators of all their results – both good and bad.  When you start living the fact you control your life, the victim mentality starts to leave you.  You become empowered to make the decisions which determine your results.  When success happens, you are the one who did the work, made sure the right people were in place, and took advantage of the opportunities in front of you.

Conversely, if you fail, you are still the person responsible for the decisions.  Accept this responsibility.  It’s part of becoming the success you want to be.  There are only two outcomes from anything – either results or excuses.  Which one do you want in your life?

Step forward and take charge of the direction of your life.  Put in the effort and find the resources needed to create success.  And by all means, take every opportunity presented to you to increase your results.  You will succeed when you decide there is no other option!

“Success, for most people, requires unlearning as much as learning.”– Orrin Woodward  

Are you open to unlearning ideas you have been taught and reinforced for years in your life?  This is immensely important in being able to create the change you want in your life.  

Your first teachers were your parents.  They taught you the best way they knew how at the time with the information they had available.  Now this kind of training can work well when you are Donald Trump and your parents were very successful already and able to show you how to do the same.  

Are your parents currently where you want to be in your future?  I know this can be a challenging question and it is an effective one.  If they have already achieved the goals you want to achieve in your life, then they are the perfect person to follow and emulate.

If what your parents have achieved is different from what you want, you must find someone else to learn from to get where you want to go.  When choosing a mentor, I always look for someone who has already achieved what I want to achieve.  Then I listen to exactly what they are guiding me to do to achieve what they already have and act on the guidance they have provided.

Taking what they say and internalizing it as part of you is your vehicle to success.  This is where the unlearning comes in.  

Most successful people have a very different set of beliefs than the average person.  This different set of beliefs and core values is one of the reasons your chosen mentor has succeeded already while you are still figuring out how to get there.  To achieve the same success, you will want to unlearn the unproductive thoughts and beliefs replacing them with the empowering beliefs and values they are teaching you.

The unlearning can at times cause conflict within you, especially when long held beliefs are the ones which need to be unlearned.  Eliminating the thoughts and beliefs which hold you back are what allows your new growth to take root and support you moving forward.  

You decide how successful you will be based on how accepting you are to unlearn the beliefs which hold you back and replace them with the empowering beliefs.  Are you ready to start unlearning your way to success?

“Prepare yourself for success. You have to see it coming to get there.”– Destiny Booze  

Have you pictured what your success will look like?  

Are you able to describe it in vivid, accurate, emotion provoking detail?

One of my favorite exercises I give to my students is writing down what your dream day looks like.  This is everything which goes on during this day.  It includes what you see, what you feel, what you smell.  I want them to feel like they are there just describing what they see or just saw.  Why so much detail?  

The more real this picture is in your head, the better you are able to create it in your life now.  When your emotions are involved and multiple senses, the picture is more real like you have already experienced it.  Once you experience something, it is easier to recreate it.

The more detailed you are with the description, the easier it is for the universe to provide you all you need to realize your goal.  When you are general or vague, it’s hard for the universe to provide the result you want since it is unclear on your expectations.

Think about it like this.  If you wanted to go on vacation and said I just want to get away, would the results be the same as saying you wanted to go to a five star hotel on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico with temps of at least 85 degrees during the day with plenty of outside activities to participate in, fantastic local restaurants to eat at for dinner within walking distance and great shopping for local beach novelty items?  The second one has a much higher likelihood of getting you what you want versus the vague first statement, right.

The same is true for where you want to go with your life. See the success you want first and you will be able to find it and create it in your life.  Take the time with one of your goals to write out a detailed description of what it looks like, feels like, sounds like.  This is one of the steps toward achieving it!

“Knowledge is being aware of what you can do. Wisdom is knowing when not to do it” – Anonymous  


Do you understand the difference?  

I know I see this often with many students of mine.  Once they come to my Maverick Selling Business Builder Bootcamp and learn the lessons I teach, they feel like they need to share this information.  Learning the training is the knowledge part of the equation.  These students know new information which will help many of their family, friends and contacts in ways they never imagined were possible.

Can you guess where the challenge comes in?  Most people I know go running home looking to share this information with everyone.  It’s the excitement they have with the knowledge they have just learned which they want to share with everyone.  

The challenging part is many of the people they are dumping this information on are in a different place and are unable or unwilling to do anything with it.   

The wisdom part comes in knowing when to use this new information when their contact is in a more receptive place.  This is the part which comes with experience.  

Do I know most people could use my coaching to take their life and their business up to the next level – of course.  I also know me running around letting everyone know the challenges they have which I could help them solve is an effort in futility.  If these people are unaware of these needs themselves and not in a position to want to do something about it, the knowledge will fall on deaf ears. 

Learning the knowledge and taking the action steps you need to move forward in your life is an awesome step.  Having the wisdom of when to approach others about the same opportunity is priceless.

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” – Mario Andretti   

Are you committed to excellence in your life every day in every way?  Truly a big question when you think about it.  Do you give level 10 commitment to everything you do?    

Many have goals or Principle Targets they have created for themselves.  Whether it’s I want to lose 20 pounds, get a 6-pack stomach vs a keg belly, make a 6-figure income this year, find my soulmate, or reconnect my relationships, the true drivers come in after the Principle Target is set.

You have to start with a strong motivation or why you are going to make changes in your life to create a different result.  If this is weak or meaningless to you, most will never even get off the couch to get started.  Make sure you feel emotion when you speak of your why.  When you can feel it deep inside, it will help motivate and drive you.

The second portion of achieving your success comes from your determination and commitment.  Each Principle Target will encounter it’s own challenges on the path to achievement.  How strongly are you committed to attaining your goal?  Will you do Whatever It Takes?  How will you react when a seemingly huge obstacle pops up in front of you?  Will you find a solution or let it hold you up and stop you?

Reflecting on these questions will let you know what else you might need to reach your Principle Targets.  Many times, people are missing at least one of these 3 key ingredients to allow their success cake to rise to the heights it is capable.  Find the missing ingredient or find an expert who is easily able to see what ingredient is needed to get your success cake to rise.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” -John D. Rockefeller  

Do you give up the good to go for the great in your life?  For many, this is a challenge.  They finally created some success and are feeling comfortable in their life.  

This feeling comfortable is an entrepreneur’s worst pitfall.  It feels good.  They accomplished the principle targets they set out to achieve at the beginning of their journey.  

Is this good all you were meant to accomplish…  or is this just one step on the stairway to greatness?  

Some of my students can find it hard to step away from the good they already found to go after the great.  They don’t want to give up what they have to attempt to get to something awesome.  For them, the security of the good is hard to move beyond, especially if they might have to give it up to get to the next level.  

Remember, you were put here to be great.  It is your whole purpose for being here. By accepting the good, you are cheating yourself and all those around you of encountering and being a part of your greatness.  

Think of where would be now if Bill Gates and Steve Jobs would have settled for being good computer programmers instead of innovative, envelope pushing, seekers of greatness.  The Macbook I’m writing this on would never have happened without the desire to be great instead of just good.  Steve would have stopped long before this computer ever became an idea.  

This is just one example of someone who accepted letting go of the good to do something great.  Greatness affects many positively.  Are you ready to be great?  Then let’s set new, even more ambitious principle targets to strive for on the next step up the greatness staircase.  I’ll be here beside you as you climb.

“You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” – Zig Ziglar  

Have you taken the steps to win in your life?  Zig hits on 3 of the keys to winning in your life.  If you want to win, you must:

  1. Create an action plan with your Principle Target as your final outcome.  Without a goal, it’s impossible to know what you are aiming to be successful doing.  Your Principle Target is your goal and focus.  Then the actual action steps you create by reverse engineering are the planned map to your destination.  When you complete each step, you are closer to the Principle Target.
  2. Prepare by practicing and improving areas which need to grow to achieve your ultimate result.  Taking the time and effort to ensure you are prepared is one of the biggest steps to being consistently successful.  Studying and implementing the skills needed for your Principle Target is what separates your success from others attempts.  Look at those who are champions in anything.  They put in tons of practice and learning to become the expert.  What have you done while others aren’t watching to become the expert in your chosen area of expertise?
  3. Expect to win.  This means having the confidence you are going to have success each and every time you do take an action or set up a Principle Target.  Truly successful people know they will come up short at times, yet they believe each opportunity will be successful.  This confidence in yourself is the belief you must have to achieve any goal.  When you believe it, you will achieve it.

Now the key to winning –> implement all three of these areas to set yourself up for the success which is yours.  Knowledge unused is worthless.  Take what you know and step into the success waiting for you.  When you do, your success is right in front of you.

Are you ready to be a winner?

“ ‘May the Force be with you’ is charming but it’s not important. What’s important is that you become the Force – for yourself and perhaps for other people.” – Harrison Ford 

Have you become the force in your life?  Do you drive action steps and results for yourself? … and as Harrison says, for others too?

It’s great to have the big vision of what you want to create in your life.  It is the starting point for everything.  Without your vision or principle targets, you are a rudderless ship adrift in the sea of life.  

These goals are much like the saying, “May the Force be with you.”  It all sounds great, yet without specific action steps daily and a strong ‘why’ in your life, it’s all just ya-ya.  To reach the target you have created for your life, you have to become the driving force willing to do Whatever It Takes to make your vision come to life.

 To become the Force, you have to:

  • see the end goal before it is actually visible
  • take the action steps each day moving you closer to your goals
  • create the motivation and drive to act whether you feel like it or not
  • inspire others to want to do their best and be a part of your vision

 The awesome part is when you do become the ‘Force’ in your life, others are automatically drawn to you.  They want to be a part of something bigger and want to work with someone who has a vision to do just that in their lives.  

 What are you doing today to become the ‘Force’ in your life?

“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.” – Dhirubhai Ambani 
 

Which one do you want in your life?  Would you rather be building your own dream or building someone else’s dream for them?  

The latter is exactly what you do when you work for someone else.  They have a dream for their business and the leverage they are using to help them reach their dream is hiring others to use their time and efforts to move the business owner’s goals forward.  Smart business on their part.  

Is this how you want to use your time – working for someone else?  Is their dream more important to you than your own dreams?

If your dream is more important, then we need to change something in your life.  We need to help you create a large enough dream which motivates you enough to put your dream first.  It’s the choice all entrepreneurs make.  They would rather build their dream and hire others to gain additional leverage on the path to their goals.  Great plan to implement!

Both sides of this equation need each other to succeed.  This dependency on each other  makes either choice perfect as long as you make the conscious choice knowing whose dream you are building.  

Which choice are you making today?  

What action are you taking on your choice now?
