I get asked all the time for “the best success tip” I can give someone who is looking to turn things around. Although the detailed answer is truly different “case-by-case”, there is a little secret that will FORCE success.
I have to admit, there is a tricky part to this secret…
Consistency (the secret) can go either way, and it’s your job to control it. You can be consistently lazy. You can be the ultimate procrastinator and never really get anything accomplished due to you consistent non-efforts.
This is what REALLY separates the “go getter” from the “excuse-maker”; the activities you CHOOSE to consistently pursue. I know grown men who literally play video games or watch television consistently 2-3 hours a day that tell me they do not have time to for a part-time job or time to work on their personal development. On the other hand, I know grown men who are “successful” and cannot find enough time in the day to attend to ALL their business matters.
To me, it is a CLEAR choice and that choice is CHOOSING the actions/habits you do on a consistent basis. If you make excuses and CHOOSE to play video games over personal development activities, there is a clear distinction and reason for your outcome. To put it VERY simple, the habits (activities) you choose to execute on a daily (consistent) basis will determine your results (outcome) in life.
If you are NOT happy with what life currently looks like, stop and take notice to the activities you do on a consistent basis. There is a book titled “Rich Habits” by Thomas Corley and it dissects the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people through their daily habits. There is a MAJOR difference in habits and this book breaks each down in great detail; I highly recommend this book to ANYONE wanting to change their habits to those of the ELITE.
Once you have the RIGHT habits down and execute them on a consistent basis, you will FORCE success to come upon you. It is a matter of cause and effect. I suggest you take the time to analyze your daily habits and determine which ones are NOT yielding your desired outcome. Once you have selected these “bad habits”, replace them with “good habits” and implement them on a CONSISTENT basis. Each month you should take the time to reflect on your results and determine which activities need adjustments and which need to be replaced altogether.
These little changes done on a consistent basis will eventually FORCE success and you WILL become a part of the elite. If you need additional help with selecting better habits, email/contact me for a more ideas; I would be more than happy to help.
Let me know how consistency affect your life and what OTHER element you credit your success to.
To Your Massive Success,
I have read a TON of books in the personal development arena and learned A LOT of interesting things along the way. There was mostly some overlapping material with sparks of NEW ideas and tips that I truly benefited from. However, there was a secret that had been sewn into each book that could be overlooked very easily.
I want to talk about a MISSION we are all on (whether we realize it or not). I am currently reading a book titled, “Hero”, by Rhonda Byrne. This book explains the EXACT mission I want to talk about today; the hero journey.
We are ALL here for a reason and our mission is to fully realize this through our experience. There is a “hero” buried inside each one of us and it is our DUTY to pull the greatness out from the depths of our souls. We all have skills and abilities inside of us that were installed in us at birth. The trick is to tap into these attributes and sharpen them up through our journey; this is living life to its full potential.
The fun thing about the “hero journey” is that it completely diminishes the competition. There is NO COMPETITION in the “hero journey” except for yourself. YOU are the biggest challenge you must overcome to attain success throughout the process. This is great news because we can then cheer on everyone else during their journey in complete understanding we are ALL going through challenges at different levels.
If you see someone you know going through a rough patch, its best to simply show compassion. They really do not need your criticism (unless asked for); it’s unnecessary and not helpful. The point of the “hero journey” is progression. We are in this thing together and helping others progress forward on their mission is the ultimate gift. Show love and give a helping hand when a fellow hero is struggling; the deed will NOT go unnoticed.
One of the BEST ways of helping in the progression, is to view each person as a HERO. Imagine everyone was the Superman or Cat Woman in their own life, because they are! how much more differently would you look at the people around you if you viewed them as HERO’S? My prediction is that we would be living in a totally different world.
The MOST important task for each “hero” is to become the BEST version of themselves. If you haven’t been the best “hero” you can be thus far, it’s NEVER to late to change. To save the world…your world…simply takes a decision to WANT to CHANGE. Dig deep and discover the HERO inside of you and join the rest of us “hero’s” on our journey!
YOU ARE A HERO!
To Your massive Success,
There are many books and other resources out there that go into explicit details on goal setting and attain your dream life. Since I have been studying “the game”, I noticed that there is a LOT of JUNK out there that is really just leading people in the wrong direction. I can make that strong statement because I am a living testament to it.
I seriously cannot stand when “guru’s” give their opinions on things they NEVER even did or experienced. To top it off they give “advice” to people as if they are factual when in reality it is all just hypothetical. They jump on their soapbox and go off on subject matter they inflate with false ideas and misdirection. It actually kind of sad to be honest.
Sadly, it doesn’t stop there. They then sell products and services to innocent people (who truly want to make a change in their life) for RIDICULOUS amounts of money that contain shallow, reiterated garbage and useless information. Their secret is this…give people SO MUCH information, they feel inundated and quite literally get overwhelmed by the obnoxious amounts of frivolous data, that they simply quit. Then these “guru’s” will say, “you didn’t follow the steps, that’s why you failed”. Oh and let’s dress this product or service with attracting beautiful packaging to REALLY convince people this stuff is the REAL DEAL. I mean it’s the equivalent of putting a tuxedo on a garbage can stuffed with smelly trash.
Unfortunately, these “guru’s” get away with schemes like this on daily basis. INFORMATION OVERLOAD. It makes people feel incompetent and undeserving of their dream life; which is the EXACT opposite of what the personal development industry should be creating.
Let me stop the rant before I frustrate myself even more.
That being said, I wanted to share with you a tip I have been using for years to manifest the things I wanted to appear in my life. Now, it may sound a bit weird at first (if you never heard of it before), but stick with me here.
Here is the tip: Obsess over what it is you want
Creepy stuff right? This is obviously intended to be utilized in a healthy manner and I will help you do just that.
Recently, I have been fascinated about a specific smart watch. I would watch video tutorials and stare at images of this smart watch daily. I would look at accessories and even place them in the “cart” as if I already owned the smart watch. I had things listed and written down that I would purchased when I get this particular smart watch. I would tell people about it and almost drool over it whenever I saw one. I picked the color schemes I wanted and even cut out newspaper ads of the smart watch. I registered to become a “product tester” and even entered in contest to win this particular smart watch. I was simply obsessed.
Finally, after 2-3 weeks of obsessing over this particular smart watch, it manifested itself into my life. I am now the proud owner of this particular smart watch and even own the exact model I dreamed about. I am extremely happy and grateful for being so blessed.
I know this example may seem a bit shallow because I am talking about something materialistic, but it was easy to make my point in an understandable way.
That being said, I believe you can manifest the life you crave, if you simply add this tool to the collection. I am NOT saying this is the ONLY thing you need, but it is a real tool used by successful people.
Give it a try. Eat, drink and sleep with your dreams constantly on your mind. Obsess about them and KNOW you can have whatever you want! Have a laser-beam focus on these dreams and never let off the gas pedal until they have been accomplished.

“Motivation You To Become The BEST Version of Yourself”
This is ALWAYS in front of us! I am not sure whether we are blind to it or distracted by other things, but OPPORTUNITY really never goes away. Of course, there are different levels of how big or small these opportunities are, but that is not to say they aren’t in our face 24/7.
Really the decision is up to us to capitalize on the various opportunities that are presented to us. A small example would be to say hello to a random patron and spark a conversation at the train station. This may turn into absolutely nothing, but on the other hand, it has the potential to be something GREAT!
In that example you see that there was a decision that needed to be made.
1. Keep to yourself and not say anything
2. Extend your hand and say hello
After the decision in your mind is made, ACTION must take place to properly execute the capitalization of an opportunity. You see, we can have ALL the opportunities in the world, but they literally mean nothing if we take no action.
Decisions must lead into actions or they will simply be thoughts.
I hear people talking ALL the time about how “LUCKY” other folks are in life because they had better opportunities. While this may be true in some cases, it shouldn’t be the reason why you don’t capitalize on your own chances. That is a a subtle excuse people use to make themselves feel better. And even if the “some cases” is true, WHO CARES!?! Complaining about it won’t get you anywhere but to the doorstep of frustration!
There is a famous actor/businessman/professional skateboarder named Rob Dyrdek who coined the phrase, “Make Your Own Luck”.
I have to say, that at first I found this phrase to be a little challenging, but after some thought and experiences of my own, I believe there is perfect reason why this is true. I noticed that when I jumped on an opportunity and really worked my tail off, more opportunities (some even bigger) came my way. I believe that it was because how the universe works. The law of attraction, karma, whatever you want to call it, happened.
I was getting rewarded for my efforts. Even though, sometimes all my work didn’t lead to the results i had initially intended, things began to change. I believe things happen for a reason, so our thoughts on HOW life SHOULD pan out really do not matter.
The Big Guy upstairs is in control and that means mysterious things can happen at ANY given moment. That is why I want to challenge you to jump on SOME kind of opportunity today. And is you cannot find one, you are NOT trying hard enough.
Here is some help. Try thinking about FIRST helping someone else (without expecting something in return), I promise you, this will get the ball rolling!
Jump on an opportunity today and see where it takes you! Good “Luck”

With the NEW YEAR approaching…Do you have one of these?
In a recent post I put up titled Finish the Fourth Quarter Strong, I talked about goal setting.
Think about how great it would be to enter the top of the year with MASSIVE MOMENTUM!
I am a huge believer in not only setting goals,but writing them down. I think there is something to physically writing the words out on paper that is simply magical. This may or may not sound ridiculous to you depending who you are and if you had prior experience with this.
When we put things out there into the universe, and if they are grounded with a real belief…they always come into fruition. We manifest our lives with the words that exit our mouth.
So why write goals down?
To add another sense into the equation for a much more solid result.
What is even more powerful than writing goals down is seeing them with your eyes.
How do we do that? A dream board or vision board.
This powerful tool not only gives clarity to your goals, it gives life to your words…it’s a visual!
So I ask, do you have one of these?
It’s simply a board with pictures of the things you wish to accomplish in life that hangs on a wall/door that you will see daily. This will be a constant reminder to you and force you to imagine you HAVING those things in your possession.
If you need help creating one or getting started with this process you can go HERE for more information.
IMPORTANT! Having a vision board does NOT replace you writing your goals down. This tool is to be used in addition to other methods used.
The trick here is to get as many senses firing at the same time to REALLY build your belief system for the actual manifestation of your goals/dreams.
And the question remains…Do you have one of these?
If not, I highly recommend giving it a shot! Have fun with it! DREAM BIG!
What if I told you there is an actual method you can apply (TODAY) to solve ANY problem you may be facing? Well, there is!
I was skimming through the classic book, “The Power of Positive Thinking“, by Norman Vincent Peale looking for a specific chapter and I fingered passed this simple method to solve any problem.
This method is actually simple and anyone can apply it RIGHT NOW to help them out solve issues.
So here it is:
1. Believe that for every problem there is a solution
2. Keep Calm. Tension blocks the flow of thought power.
3. Don’t try to force an answer. Keep your mind relaxed…
4. Assemble ALL facts
5. List these facts on paper. This clarifies your thinking…
6. Pray about your problem…
7. Believe in and seek God’s guidance…
8. Trust in the faculty of insight and intuition
9. Go to Church and let your subconscious mind work on the problem as you attune to the mood of worship.
10. If you follow these steps faithfully, then the answer that develops in your mind, or comes to pass, is the right answer to your problem.
So in 10 EASY steps, you can solve ANY problem.
If you can practice these steps regularly, your personal development journey will go a lot further than expected as you are becoming a skilled problem solver.
As mentioned before, my goal is to help other people become the best versions of themselves.

There are so many conversations I enter that end up losing my attention because of a negative attitude. I am definitley not saying I don’t complain or say negative things…I mean a rough day is a rough day! haha
I am talking about having conversations/relationships with people who are CONSTANTLY negative! They tell you they must have “bad luck”. Everything they do somehow turns into a gossip column on E! News. I don’t mind when someone is releasing frustration and wants to vent, but the folks who are repeatedly barfing their “problems” all over your day can take a toll.
I believe it’s our outlook on life that produces the results.
If we are constantly blaming other people & things for our problems, we will continue to get his “Bad luck” show up in our lives.
Why do the “struggles” of life constantly happen to the same people?
According to November’s Issue of SUCCESS Magazine, page 76.
It’s a byproduct of their [your] habits. Poverty habits, repeated over and over are like snowflakes on a mountainside. In time, these snowflakes build up until the inevitable avalance…”
So how do we ELIMINATE BAD LUCK FOREVER?
The same article provides a simple answer…
…successful people create their own unique type of good luck. Their positive habits lead to opportunities such as promotions, bonuses, new business and good health.”
So it is a decision we must make daily through our habits.
Become more optimistic and create your own luck!
Have a healthier outlook on life and remove negative talk altogether! And watch how the “bad luck” turns into good luck!

I’m not sure about you, but I think it is absolutely amazing to feel the love and support from friends/family while on your path to attaining your dreams. I don’t think there is a better feeling than knowing there are people backing you up; especially if you are passionate about what it is you are doing.
This not only gives you power, but the ENERGY to carry on! Many entrepreneurs get “burnt out” from burning the candle on both ends. How do they progressivley move forward into their abundance if they feel like they are all beat up? How do they carry on, when everything seems to be going the wrong way? What pushes them to continue on thier path to SUCCESS when results are not showing?
Of course having the FAITH & BELIEF the God will carry them through, but also
having the backing of friends/family is EXTREMELY important. I know for me, as a guy, I have this constant urgency to provide. That being said, I place a ton of pressure on myself to produce results. Naturally, stress is tied up in all that pressure and if I am not focused/grounded, I can EASILY burn myself out.
I have noticed that attaining REAL RESULTS in life are NOT solely gained by action alone.
There is a spiritual aspect that one MUST have.
You have to believe things will work out.
There has to be some form of hope.
That being said, the FEELING I’ve got is GRATITUDE! I have a feeling of gratitude because of all the love & supoort I have been receiving through this blog/business venture. Yes, I work really hard to get the results I am getting, but without this support, I would probably burn out eventually.
So my feeling of gratitude is directly related to YOU! You have been a part of this magnificent journey and I hope I can do the same for you!
One LAST Thing: I have noticed when I am in the midst of feeling GRATEFUL, the universe responds by sending more BLESSINGS! hint hint!
