10 Reasons Why You’re Never Going to Be Successful (Part 1)

10 Reasons Why You’re Never Going to Be Successful (Part 1)

Maybe this post will pull on a few heartstrings. Maybe it will offend a few. But maybe (and what I’m hoping) is it will enlighten and open the eyes to some of you who may be suffering from a scientific term I call “zerosuccessitis”. There’s no hiding the fact that 98% of ALL marketers online are struggling to make any money at all. It always will be this way. It’s a sad truth but it’s a truth all of us must face if you’re looking to make any sort of income or have any sort of success online. At the end of the day, the KEY to having success anywhere in your life begins with you. It begins with a mindset. While I could go on for days about how to achieve a positive mindset. The best way to take the proper steps to success; is to avoid taking the wrong ones. 10 Reasons Why You’re Never Going to Be Successful 1.) You Refuse to Sacrifice. Starting a business online requires you to sacrifice in the short term so you can benefit in the long term. I’ve lost count at how many deaf ears/eyes this falls on. Perhaps part of the blame can fall on the WSO’s and other making money online products; who spout how you can make $10,000 in your first 7-10 days without doing any heavy lifting. What it all boils down to though…is if you’re going to be successful. You need to devote and commit your time to build a business. How much you sacrifice is entirely up to you. The advice I’ve given my coaching students in...
The Step by Step Guide to Success

The Step by Step Guide to Success

We’ve all seen it, we’ve all wanted it. We’ve all asked for it (yes I’m talking to you). So prepare for a little tough love… Step by step guides to making money online are LIES. It doesn’t matter who you are. It’s the honest to God’s truth. I’m not saying you can’t follow steps to achieve success or seek out a mentor to coach you in strategies. But following a “step by step” guide 100% and to the letter will get you absolutely NOWHERE. Here’s why (and it’s a pretty simple truth): If there was a step by step guide to making money online that actually worked. EVERYONE WOULD BE RICH. The smart, the not-so-smart, mediocre and the extraordinary would all be financially independent and the world would be a very strange place. To understand why step by step guides don’t work is to look at them like this: Think of them as a hand drawn map that leads to a buried treasure. You follow the path, you climb the mountains and traverse the jungle. But chances are, when you get the to the end…the treasure has already been dug up by someone else reading the same map. On top of that? Everyone interprets things differently. That “tree” the maps says to take a left at, may look like a bush to you. Perhaps the tree was cut down recently? Perhaps the fork in the road has disappeared and been replaced with a new path. At the end of the day, AVERAGE people follow a step by step guide. The steps to success are as follows: Action – Connection...
Multitasking is Bad for You, Mkay?

Multitasking is Bad for You, Mkay?

Why is Multitasking bad for you? Let me start with a story that happened to me today. At 3:45AM, I grabbed my suitcase and laptop bag, kissed my beautiful wife, got into my car and made my way to the Moline, IL airport. I checked in, went through security, got to my gate and sat down. I pulled out my tablet, opened up my Kindle app and started reading another book a mentor of mine suggested entitled, “The One Thing” by Jay Papasan and Gary W. Keller. (I highly recommend it). In one of the chapters, it talks about how Multitasking is a lie. I won’t go into a review of this book. That’s not what this article is about. It’s what happened on the plane that really got me inspired to write this article. So I’m heading to Atlanta to make my connecting flight to Birmingham 30,000 feet above the ground. I’m sitting next to a guy. He’s neatly dressed. Suit and tie, you know the kind. All the while I’m reading The One Thing on my tablet. Half way through the flight, the guy asks me what I’m reading. So I explain to him the name of the book and what it’s about. I talk to him about the “lies” the book explains like multitasking (which is backed up by scientific research, I might add.) and how profound of an impact the book has already made on me. It was then that this guy started to get a little snarky. He starts rambling on about how self-help books don’t do anything to help because they tell you stuff...
How to Overcome Limiting Beliefs

How to Overcome Limiting Beliefs

The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t; life controls you.  – Tony Robbins All too often, I see people doubt themselves. This inevitably results in them never taking action and never being a success they had initially dreamed and aspired to become. In this video, I explain a simple little exercise to overcome that negative way of thinking.   Share...
