I would like to share an idea with you that could be the key to you creating the results that you want in 2014.
I am in a hyper growth period in my business right now. In order to achieve the growth and manage the growth I need to think differently.
So if you are in a place in your life where you want to grow your business results this idea is perfect for you. So here is the idea.
At the end of the day the one thing that is going to make the biggest difference in your results for 2014 is how you spend your time daily. Read that last sentence 10x. Your results are going to be determined by how you spend your time.
When you begin to study time management and productivity you discover that not all activities are created equal. If you want to move your business forward, faster it is about making better decisions with your time.
If you are tracking with me so far let me give you the next level of this. One of the best ways to spend your time is on activities that produce leverage. So look for ways you can spend time on activities that produce leverage. If you are enjoying this conversation then join me this weekend for 2 days of advanced training. I will be going much deeper on this concept as well as many other breakthrough ideas. The event is virtual so you don’t have to travel anywhere. I will be joined by my mentors, Jay Abraham, Dr. Moine, Les Brown, and my new friend Mel Robbins. To register go to http://thesystemsalesbook.com/jay/

What Can You Learn from a Billionaire?
What do billionaires know that you don’t? How can you benefit from learning a few new distinctions that could dramatically increase your results?
You probably have seen many books on the topic of becoming a millionaire. They have titles like The Millionaire Mind, The Millionaire Next Door, and Weekend Millionaire Mindset.
But what about billionaires? You may be interested to know that more than 2,300 people have won an Olympic Gold Medal, but only 1,125 people have become billionaires.
Please keep in mind that this group of 1,125 people includes people who had major help along the way: Many were born with it, inherited it, or had every advantage while growing up.
Then there’s my friend Bill Bartmann. He became a self-made billionaire after being in terrible circumstances: His family was twice evicted from homes because the buildings were declared “unfit for human habitation.” He kept a pet dog, not to be his play buddy, but to keep the rats off him at night. Yet he went on to become a billionaire.
Here’s where it gets even more interesting – Bill is willing to share with you the details of how he became a billionaire, and he would like to offer you an opportunity to partner with him in his current business. When have you had the chance to partner with someone who knows what it takes to build a multi-billion dollar business?
Be sure to listen to this audio from start to finish. You’ll just as amazed as I am about his story.
In fact, by the end of the audio, you’ll understand why Bill became so astonishingly successful and you’ll understand the opportunity that is available to you and me right now.
Learn from a man who has gone from bankrupt to billionaire. You don’t want to miss this!

I remember when I was younger and in school, fear stopped me from asking out a girl I wanted to date. I can remember all the thoughts of different things I wanted to say and how I would ask her out. As quickly as the idea to ask her out popped in my head, I came up with all the reasons why she might say no. I remember the “feeling” of rejection and embarrassment even though I didn’t even pick up the phone! It’s as real in my mind right now as it was then. I didn’t understand it then but I certainly do today.
Have you ever had thoughts of fear that have caused you not to move ahead with any of your dreams or goals? Every human on earth at one time or another feels this “fear” and reverts back into their “safety” or comfort zone. The system was created to protect us in times of real danger, but we must learn when danger is real or caused by our imagination of what may happen…again.
What ability causes one person to face and overcome possible rejection at work, in school or in a relationship easier to handle, than someone who is paralyzed by the mere thought?
A man who goes after business like a tiger may be uncomfortable with women and therefore not be able to approach a woman for fear of rejection. A woman who is miserable in a relationship may be petrified at the thought of saying anything to her spouse in fear of the potential discussion or backlash. A child may not seek out other children to play with at school in fear of rejection. The list can go on and on from fear of leaving your job to fear of hurting yourself if you try something new.
So what is really going on and how can we stop this once and for all?
First and foremost understand that fear is a very common feeling and we all have one fear or another. The “feeling” of fear is almost solely based on what we think may happen if we try and fail. It is different than actually knowing that we will hurt ourselves if we fall 20 stories from a building.
Most Fears are Illusions We Create in Our Head!
Most fears are illusions we create in our own head based on past conditioning and not based on what is possible. As children, we are natural-born risk takers and for the most part we are fearless. The meaning we give an experience when we do not achieve the result we want determines how we “see” and “feel” the next opportunity that seems like the one we’ve experienced in the past.
If we experience rejection more times than we care to, we tend to mentally label the experience a negative one. Over time this becomes our belief and our beliefs, as you already know, become your reality.
What would happen if we changed the meaning of an experience we didn’t like? What if we learned to label our experiences as “learning” or “interesting” experiences? Do you think your tolerance level would increase for trying again?
I have learned that people who really succeed in various areas of life often frame their experiences differently than those who quickly label the experience as a negative one.
When we feel fear, we are playing a mental trick that is not conducive to growth. All growth comes from stretching oneself past the comfort zone that limits us. Risk is a necessary part of the reward. You cannot have one without the other.
Let me suggest that you start to label your experiences in ways that serve you rather than limit you. We have very few limits except the ones that we set on our selves. And those are mostly out of fear from the past. Do not let your past control your present thinking. Step out and grow. Step out of your comfort zone and be free again!
