What is DESTINY? The dictionary defines it as fate, providence; predestination; God’s will, kismet, the stars; luck, fortune, chance, karma, serendipity.
Most of us believe that it requires the INTENTIONAL commitment to EXCELLENCE and the total rejection of MEDIOCRITY to achieve our destiny — our ultimate calling in life.
As William Jennings Bryan said…
Have you been working harder and harder and still haven’t achieved the success you desire? Would you like to know WHY?
Factually, scientifically, precisely?
If you’re like the vast majority of our customers, you have read all the books… listened to the tapes… attended the seminars… BUT… there’s still a barrier between where you are now, and where you want to go.
I have built my entire life around seizing ever-growing opportunities. I have yet to hear even ONE knock on my door — or whack me upside my head. Opportunities behave quite differently from what we have been trained to expect. You must have POWERFUL LENSES with which to see and sense them.
Just to repeat the age-old quote by Aristotle, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
Ayn Rand said it best, “Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think.”
But key to this observation is exactly what to THINK about! This is especially important if you are a small business owner who wants to grow and expand profits.
So, if you want to grow, make more money, enjoy your business more, here’s a short list of what you want to think about, pretty much every hour of every day!
Are You A Visionary?
To SEE what is invisible to others is the key aspect of being a visionary.
Our vision is huge and world-changing… and I hope you share it: Turn 2.5 billion Smartphones into the greatest training system ever envisioned… making the world SMARTER and SAFER.
The vision is to take 5,000 years of the best ideas… from the best minds who ever lived, now and then… off the shelf and inject them directly into your brain — in 10-second blasts all day long.
TQ Members: It’s Time to Step Up…
I need your help to make a key investment in YOU personally and the rest of the human race collectively.

To give you and the rest of the world HOPE that we can make our own lives better, while at the same time, giving a BILLION people around the globe something that they cannot get at any price right now…
“For, he that expects nothing shall not be disappointed, but he that expects much—if he lives and uses that in hand day by day—shall be full to running over.” ~ Edgar Cayce The Key to Living a Life that Matters.Now On Sale. Great quote, isn’t it? Even if it comes from a man who lived […]

Why Are We Doing This? Because we, each of us individually and as the human race, have to do better. We have no other choice.
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” ~ Nolan Bushnell The Most Eye-Opening […]
All last week I poked and prodded, asking if you truly BELIEVE that you can achieve your most important goals this year? Are you COMMITTED enough? Do you have enough RESOLVE?
Does the WHY within your goals light that inner-fire within you? Do you have the VOLITION, DEDICATION and MOTIVATION to overcome the obstacles, roadblocks and bottlenecks that you will undoubtedly encounter?
This morning we had a wonderful conversation about getting 2017 off to the best start possible. My advice was simple.
Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle. Label the left half WHAT I DON’T WANT… and the right side WHAT I REALLY WANT…
Listen to the audio and follow along. 1 hour here and you will not only have better direction, but a real head start towards guaranteeing 2017 becomes YOUR year.
There are many popular definitions of the word GOAL. Most define it as a dream with a date… we define it as a dream with a deadline. The deadline implies commitment to both the dream and the time it will take to achieve it.
A better definition might be that goals represent the confluence between Desirability and Believability. It is the recognition that it takes BOTH to create a goal that will ultimately be achieved.
Two-thirds of the businesses started in the last two years will not be here in 2020. You can WIN, but you must PLAN to win… then PLAY to win.
No sports team would ever win a single game if they didn’t do BOTH. The game of business is a professional sport played with real money… real people… real hopes and dreams.
Ignore the reality, you will not make it.
This week, we will expand on the WOW GOALS theme, and tackle the “without limits” aspect of this discussion. Sometimes all you need is a change in perspective from what is, and is not possible, to get you moving in the direction of your dreams!
This week, we will discuss the importance of setting clear and tangible GOALS that are in direct alignment with your Mission—so you can actually LIVE what you VALUE most… each and every day. The best question to ask at this time of the year is…
This week, we will focus on the core of living the life you love: Your sense of purpose and MISSION.
This area of your performance is vitally important because it governs all your GOALS (or lack thereof,) your outlook for the future, your ability to draw the right people to your cause, and your desire to take ACTION.
