How Is It Possible?

To achieve greatness, you must reach higher than "good." If you play it safe and hope for good, 1% greatness will be an impossibility.

Where you are now is not where you'll be in the future, but before excellence can be attained, unwavering belief is mandatory. You must know your goals will be achieved before evidence shows it's face. This is counterintuitive - most won't believe in themselves until they're assured success. Oprah, Jobs, and Jordan all knew they'd separate from mediocrity long before they actually achieved separation. This ability to mentally go beyond "realistic" is shared with the majority of 1% success stories, and plays a major role in everything they do.

Working backwards from the finished product allows the mind to better figure out the "how" of the process, and keeps motivation alive. The main ingredient in this type of thinking, however, is fearlessness. You must not be afraid to make a wrong decision along the way. Make a committed decision that you'll continue taking risks, stay aggressive along your path, and never stop until the goal is reached.

Believe that it will manifest ... the how will work itself out.

Which One Are You?

You always have a choice. Your mindset will determine so much of what you experience.

Attack ... Fearlessly!

The emotion that comes from fear is real, but fear itself ... a complete illusion!

My biggest fear is being afraid. Never again, will I allow it to dictate my thinking or shadow my decisions. When I discovered how weak it really is, my life instantly changed. 

We have total control over it, but unfortunately, the exact opposite is how we've been conditioned. Attack your goals, fearlessly ... knowing "success" is directly on the other side!

You're In Total Control ...

You're in total control of how you view Monday. Will you be upset your weekend is over or excited that you have an opportunity to begin the type of momentum that will take you to another level?

We're conditioned to follow the crowd, think like they think, and complain like they complain. I dare you to pull away from that type of poison and become different than the majority. 

Every result you get is a direct result of how you think and what you choose to believe ... period.

Your Success Hinges On It ...

This single factor has the potential to separate you from mediocrity! Society tries to eliminate it from your growth, but if you resist, great things will appear.

Flip The Switch

I see it manifesting - there's no doubt, no hesitation, no worry. This wasn't always the case, however!

There was a time where I hoped, wanted, and wished my goals would appear. I woke up every morning, not excited for the challenge to make them happen, but instead, worried about what my life would look like if they didn't. This type of mindset froze me, not allowing for complete immersion into the process. I talked about what I wanted, but never made a decision to sacrifice, and do whatever it took to produce the result. Looking back, it was 100% fear! I was afraid of, not only the work needed, but the feeling of failure if it didn't take shape.

People ask me all of the time, how I flipped the switch from fear to passion. My answer is simple: I became sick of being afraid! That's it! I made a DECISION that my life would no longer be consumed with "what if I don't," and consciously replaced it with a choice of fearlessness and discipline. Most are looking for a magic formula that will somehow transform their thinking - I know I was. The 'secret' lies within your motivation for doing what you're doing. My passion is (in this order) my family and helping change mindsets for generations to come. One person at a time, I will eliminate the word "realistic" from our vocabulary.

The moment I switched my thinking from "how is this going to happen" to "this WILL absolutely happen," my life instantly changed. Confidence flooded my mindset, results began to appear, and my environment began to shift. Total immersion in making my goals appear was all I knew ... and I all I know, today.

Stop waiting for it to happen to you ... make it happen for you!

I Finally Caught Her

Another simple message that's missed by many. This needs to be locked-in if you're going to separate from mediocrity ...

What's YOUR Excuse Again?

THIS is the 1% Mindset, personified! The next time you complain about why it's too difficult or how painful it is, watch this again ... I definitely will!

Impossible What?

What does this word even mean?

I'm finally at a place in my life where "impossible" no longer exists. I mentally achieved this by making a committed decision that enough was enough! I became sick of not being able to grab ahold of what I truly wanted in life, and blaming it on this word. Now, the only reason I don't attain a goal is because I don't have the passion to continue sacrificing - and that's o.k.

 If you don't absolutely love what you're doing ... S-T-O-P! Time is too valuable to spend on mediocrity. 
Conversely, if you have a deep passion for something, eliminate Impossible from your vocabulary. Lose the excuses, whining, and every other reason you haven't achieved it yet. 

Nothing and especially NO ONE can keep you from your dreams. I'm living proof of that fact ... it's happening right in front of my eyes - things that I once thought impossible, are becoming a reality. I can say, with 100% certainty, they're manifesting because I lost that nasty word, and committed every ounce of energy into seeing it all through. 

I challenge you, personally ... turn impossible into Probable ... watch what happens!

Got Passion?

This struck me as so true! I instantly connected with this, emotionally, remembering a time where I had actually ran down the last bus of the night. I was in total desperation mode, knowing that if I missed it, the walk home, not only would be long, but also dangerous. During this chase, I ran faster than normal - I was definitely more intent on catching the last bus, compared to if it was the first. 

THIS is how our run towards our goals should feel! In our minds, there shouldn't be another "bus" coming to pick us up. Our actions each day should reflect the need to attain the goal - we'd crumble if it wasn't achieved. Instead, many settle for less, make excuses for why they "couldn't" sacrifice or work that extra hour, all while watching their dreams remain dreams.

Make them real ... now. Imagine yourself living the rest of your life without the goal you created. What does that feel like? If you feel as if the last bus just drove away, you're on the right track. You can't fake passion. Keep your heart open. Listen to it. Chase it with every last breathe in your body.

The True Definition Of Commitment

I posted this quote yesterday on my Facebook page, and got a huge response. 

I think it resonated with so many people because, so often, we fall into this trap - being excited and motivated in the moment, but when that "moment" disappears, we lose the commitment. Our goals will only be reached when we understand it's during our most frustrating times where we make the biggest difference.

Anyone can continue when they're feeling good, but it's the 1% Mindset that keeps pursuing during the most struggle, most pain, most doubt.

Yes I Can ...

What looks like an impossibility to the 99% is always probable to the person with the 1% Mindset!

Decide you will achieve. Never quit until it's yours.

How Is None Of Your Business ...

Don't ever listen to those who tell you to lower your expectations - keep them high, pushing you out of your comfort zones.

Live For The Struggle

This message is so important, I wanted to leave it up for one more day ...

Most know that we must have passion for what we're doing - fire for the goals we're attempting to achieve. Unfortunately, that just isn't enough ...

There Are No Limitations ...

You can be what you want to be, do what you want to do ... but you must be fearless enough to DECIDE!

Here's The Real Secret ...

There's no magic to 1% Success ... 

Decide. Dedicate. Never stop until your goals are reached. Love the pain and struggle along the way.

There's no secret. There's no instant plan. There's no such thing as overnight success, unless 10 years is your definition of "overnight!"
