Many years ago, my mentor Bob Proctor made an observation about great salespeople. He said, “If you look at any salesperson who is really good, they have a completely different belief system and a different level of intensity about them than your average salesperson.”

To be successful, salespeople and business people MUST have an intense level of belief in something. What do you believe in? What’s your mission and purpose? When you...

In the US, sports are sacred. They’re a source of bringing excellence and inspiration to the world. The way we’ve built sports, they’ve become part of the backbone of what we stand for and who we are. 

Recently there’s been a practice of “sportswashing”—where an individual, group, corporation, or government uses sport to improve their tarnished reputation. They host an event, purchase a sponsorship or a team, or participate in the ...

In today’s episode I’m continuing where I left off, teaching from Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Voice of Knowledge.

All human beings live in a story of their own creation. That goes for your family members too. You live in your own story. Your mother lives in her own story. Your family members all have their own story, their own beliefs, and their perceived role that you have. 

For example, your mother can swear that she knows you we...

In The Voice of Knowledge, Don Miguel Ruiz has a chapter called “The Storyteller.” In it, he questions everything about his beliefs about himself and invites us to do the same. 

Throughout our life, we all live in a story of our own creation, without even noticing it. We should question our beliefs about ourselves. Are they true? Or were these stories just passed down to us as “knowledge” from someone else? In today’s episode, I’m ...

Throughout my life, I’ve had a history of being able to manifest the things I wanted, whether it was in business or other areas. In 1993, I had an obsession around fishing. However, I made the decision to give up that obsession, so that I could focus on my business and family interests. Because of my obsessive nature, I have to put all my energies into a specific direction (I can’t have them split). 

I closed the door on fishing an...

Your success is the equivalent of what you can get yourself to follow through on. What you follow through on, is a “dance” between what you desire the most and what you fear the most.

If you let fear stop you, then you stop. If you desire safety over uncertainty, adventure, and risk—then you let that desire for safety stop you. The idea is to push to another level and break through the fear—because that’s the only way you’ll grow.

In business, people often get frustrated because they’re not making enough sales, and they don’t have enough people to contact. They’re up against the ropes every month, and they’re exhausted. “How long do I have to keep doing this?” they ask. 

What they’re really asking is, “Why am I not harvesting enough?”

Farming is a great metaphor for business. When you farm, you plant crops at a certain time, and you harvest them at a certain...

People have a tendency to get stuck in their thinking. No matter what, they can’t seem to make a decision, come to a resolution, or move forward.

My mentor used to say, “If you have a problem, look in the mirror—you are your only problem, and you are your only solution.”

If you understand how to think accurately, you can move yourself through any problem or moment of feeling stuck.

    Thomas Troward taught us that our mind is a center of divine operation. Every person is the center of their own universe—including you. And your mind is where everything starts to happen. 

    In her book, Your Invisible Power, Geneviève Behrend (who was Troward’s only student) wrote that, “When your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire and hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to th...

    The Rolling Stones have just set out on their 60th anniversary tour in Europe. Having formed their band in 1962, they’re still going strong today. This shows their unbelievable work ethic, dedication to what they do, and commitment to putting on a good show. It’s amazing how they’ve been able to achieve longevity and sustained greatness over the many decades they’ve been together.

    In this episode, BT and I discuss:

    The Reverend TD Jakes did a sermon awhile back where he talked about the 3 types of “friends” who come into your life, and it’s important to understand the difference between them.

    They are:

    1) Confidant—someone who’s there for you no matter what. They love you unconditionally. They can cheer with you, cry with you, and “feed” you what you need to grow. You’ll be lucky if you have two or three of these people in your lifetime. In f...

    Any time you’re trying make a change in your life, do something new, or get a different result, you usually bump up against “the terror barrier.” This is where your subconscious programming clashes with the new idea, possibility or result that you want to explore. It clashes against any new information you gather about how to obtain that result.

    When people search for answers to a “new” question, often they’ll have a real dilemma g...

    When I first started my business back in 1999, I made a conscious decision to become a master salesperson. I knew that if I could master this skill set, it would not only be a great benefit financially—it would also take out all the worry from my business . I made sales calls every day, even when I had small children at home.

    Over time, I became aware of how salespeople got stuck in a mindset that caused them to back off of making ...

    In Working With the Law, Raymond Holliwell says that “God does not give us the spirit of fear, but of courage and a sound mind.”

    Fear is not a bad thing, but we don’t want to be controlled by it. Instead, we want to be led by our desire. We must not make decisions based on fear—including the fear of being judged by other people.

    In this episode you’ll learn:

    In Working with the Law (in the chapter called “The Law of Receiving”), Raymond Holliwell says that, “Money came into form to fill the need for exchange.” Humans needed a way to exchange things. Bartering was our first form of exchange until it was no longer practical to trade things that we didn’t need or want.

    Today money touches everything we do—and everything has a financial component to it. Unfortunately, most people don’t get...

    Today BT and I are having a fascinating discussion on getting older without necessarily getting “old.”

    Lester Wright ran 100 meters in 26 seconds the day after his 100th birthday.

    Rick Clunn is considered one of the best of the best tournament fishermen in the world, at 76.

    Harriet Thompson set a record for the oldest woman to run a marathon at 92.

    All three of these individuals prove that life doesn’t stop at a certain age or numb...

    Most of our lives are spent in a constant state of fear, pain, or avoidance. We find what’s comfortable and we stay there…until we can’t anymore. The job becomes toxic. The stress becomes unbearable. And suddenly we need to make a huge change—or else live the rest of our lives in a state of lack.

    There’s only one way to manage the fear—and that is to “work the plan.”

    Everything we desire—and everything that’s involved in living our purpose—comes through the process of believing. Belief is a spiritual and a scriptural promise that’s based on universal law.

    Nothing exists in and of itself; it’s always connected to something else. When you believe this to be true—and you have a strong belief in it—you can accomplish remarkable things.

    The idea of belief and inner strength is biblical. The Christia...

    America is a relatively young nation, going on its 250th year of becoming a free nation in a few years. However, for the first time in history, the United States could be destroyed. There are kids who have never learned the history of what this country has gone through—because they’re trying to erase that history in schools.

    Abraham Lincoln talked about how the United States would not come down by some foreign oppressor or attack. ...
