For more than 20 years now, I’ve coached and mentored successful entrepreneurs and business owners from around the world. As the founder of the multimillion-dollar global coaching company Life Is Now, Inc, I’ve helped thousands of individuals gain the confidence and find the right mindset to increase their revenue, turning their endeavors into seven- and eight-figure ventures.
But success is not something that was handed to me. In fact, it took a near death experience and a 180 mindset shift to get where I am today.
In September of 1989, what was supposed to be a rare relaxing day spent with my family, cruising down the Illinois River in a roomy boat, quickly turned into a nightmare…I was pulled deep into the gates of a dam that shredded my flesh, broke my back, and nearly drowned me. No one expected me to survive the accident, and rescue workers even told my family I was already dead.
The day I woke up from that tragic accident was the day I began the journey responsible for changing my entire life, and now the lives of thousands of others. I began studying my own potential and in the 12 months following my accident ~ despite being unable to walk for more than a month ~ I tripled my income. By December of 2000, I had transformed from a high-school dropout and minimum wage-earning dock worker to an executive corporate manager, a stock investor, and a business owner.
I thrive on helping others achieve whatever dreams their heart’s desire – no matter where they’re starting from. Whether you’re just starting out, or looking to grow your already established business, here are my top 5 pieces of advice as you navigate the world of entrepreneurship:
1. Success is your birthright
Everything is born to be successful Look at nature. Everything grows to be it’s the biggest and best version of itself. Nothing is born to fail.
2. Self-sabotage is your biggest enemy
How you think is the only thing stopping you from being successful. How you think controls your actions and your results. Self-sabotage happens when we bump up against fear and without even being conscious of it, we make ourselves small, hide, or tear down what we have built…all to avoid discomfort.
3. Sales are universally connected to everything you do
When we communicate we are seeking to have others accept our ideas, beliefs, and point of view. In order to live a productive life, we must constantly buy and sell to others in order to get our needs met. Everything we receive is because someone sold us on why we needed it.
4. “The Law of More Life” cultivates an abundance mentality
The mere fact that life exists must indicate that all things requisite for life must be at our disposal. When we train our minds to see abundance we realize it’s everywhere and has been there all the time. Based on the Law of More Life, everything must have an overall purpose that contributes to life.
5. Mindset is everything
Human beings are the one form of life that have the ability to think, choose and create their life. From top to bottom we have that power; however if we never learn to use the tool that gives us that power we become enslaved to the belief and superstitions of others. That tool is our mind.
