Keep Playing BIG! Million Dollar Business Strategies and Secrets This Friday »

Are you willing to work sixteen hours a day? Rich people are. Are you willing to work seven days a week and five up most of your weekends? Rich people are. Are you willing to sacrifice seeing your family, your friends, and give up your recreations and hobbies? Rich people are. Are you willing to risk all your time, energy and start-up capital with no guarantee of returns? Rich people are.

Pursuing your dreams of success is risky, scary, challenging, and demanding, but what else are you going to do really? Just sit back and wait for something cool to happen to you? I think not! Not you!

When I was in college I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine who was just starting off his career as a professional race care driver. I mentioned that I felt I was one of those lucky people in that good things tend to happen to me. He said, “That’s cool. I do it a little different. I go get good things.”

I thought that was so cool and I changed my philosophy…well, actually I just added to it.  It seems way better to go after good things rather than just waiting for something to happen.

That’s why I created the Million-Dollar Business Strategies and Secrets Program. I’m going after something big and I figured I should do what I do best and help others along the way.

This week I’m going to share a couple of eye opening concepts and exercises that will challenge your thinking and open the door for you to get bigger and better results FASTER!!

Feel free to bring lunch or a snack, bring a friend, and be ready to dive deep into the millionaire mindset.

6 Urgent Success Secrets—for when you need a greater level of success now!! »

Sometimes we just need to hit the reset button on our dreams. When you need to take your results to the next level, try these 6 Urgent Success Secrets…


1) Find your true purpose

First off, reconnect with your purpose. If you’re not       clear on your true purpose, this whole process of getting results gets really, really challenging. In fact, the true purpose for why you’re doing what you’re doing is so important, if you don’t have it clear, you are radically decreasing your chances for success. As I learned in boy scouts, if you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll get lost. The #1 thing to do when you’re lost is to stop wandering around! All that does is help you to get more lost. Stop, get clear on where you are, where you’re going, and WHY.


**Coach’s Note**

Clarifying your true purpose is the absolute best and biggest breakthrough you will have, and with good coaching you can do this quickly and immediately begin producing bigger results faster!!!


Q: How do you know if you have found your true purpose?

A: If you’re asking the question, you haven’t found it. J



2) Play big

Most of us are simply playing too small and we get bored. We need to raise the bar and challenge ourselves to play a game that scares us. Think back to the first time you jumped off the high dive board. Remember that feeling you had while you were standing at the top preparing to leap? A cloud of uncertainty, fear, and anxiety rushed over you. Your brain began making up scenarios of peril, even to the point that you started thinking about climbing back down the ladder. But then you pushed past it, took the leap, and felt that exhilaration. What happened next? You couldn’t wait to do it again. You realized all the fear and apprehension were for nothing. The worst part about the whole thing wasn’t the jump or the landing; it was the anxiety that you faced while anticipating the jump. The jump was nothing. It was fun. It was exhilarating. It was even easy.


We play too small because of that anxiety, fear, and anticipation of what is going to happen. We need to push ourselves to the top of the high dive, to the point where we’re a little scared and nervous. Play a game big enough to frighten yourself a bit. The worst part about playing big is what we make up in our mind, but that’s a good thing; the fear tells us we’re on the right track. We need to get to that feeling and then jump. Realizing big dreams requires making big leaps. Play big to win big!!



**Coach’s Note**

Zig Zigler said, “You can have anything you want if you help others get what they want.” If you push yourself to a new level by playing big, you will gain knowledge that can help another. Help enough people and you will gain access to whatever it is you want in life. You can help others by helping yourself!


Q: What happens after we’ve made the leap off the high dive?

A: We become the teacher, the cheerleader, and the encourager of all others about to take the leap.




3) Create a millionaire mindset

It’s time to adopt the thinking of a millionaire. The success gurus talk about making decisions based on where we want to be versus where we are. “Begin with the end in mind” is one of Stephen Covey’s famous habits for highly effective people. We have to ensure that we’re making decisions and setting up strategies that are consistent with where we want to go and not where we are.


**Coach’s Note**


There’s a distinction between scarcity thinking and the millionaire mindset of abundance.


Poor people with scarcity mindset:

  • Like having big TVs and “things”
  • Always ask about payments
  • Worry about today
  • Talk about someday
  • Say, “Yeah, but…”
  • Tend to make decisions slowly

Rich people with millionaire thinking:

  • Never buy anything; they invest
  • Ask about return on investment
  • Make decisions based on where they want to be, not where they are
  • Surround themselves with people who will help them grow
  • Learn constantly
  • Have confidence and believe in themselves
  • Make decisions quickly and take action today

4) Invest in yourself

Jim Rohn, motivation and success guru, gave me the absolute best advice I’ve ever heard: “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” Being successful is not about making money. It’s about your knowledge and your ability level. Whatever you have today is 100% consistent with your knowledge and ability. To experience a greater level of success, we have to expand our ability and our knowledge. We have to stretch ourselves to the level that is consistent with what we want.


This is the same reason people who win the lottery tend to end up broke. They have not gained the knowledge and ability to maintain that level of wealth. Being wealthy and successful takes investing in yourself and learning how to play the game of success at a bigger level.


**Coach’s Note**

Success is not something you have, it’s something you become. Success doesn’t happen to you. You must grow and expand through constant and continuous coaching, learning, and experiencing.


Q: Would you love to make money like a professional athlete?

A: By the time they have been retired for two years, 78% of former NFL players have gone bankrupt or are under financial stress because of joblessness or divorce. Within five years of retirement, an estimated 60% of former NBA players are broke. The average world-class athlete retires from his sport at the age of 33.


5) Develop your team

This is the second-best place to invest your time, energy, and money. First is in yourself, second is in the team that will support your success. I’m adamant about making sure a good coach is on your list of team members. Get your coach and get him today!! The sooner the better! Remember the high dive? A coach will help you to get through the points of greatest fear and anxiety so you can experience the thrill and rush of a whole new level of success—FAST! Nobody likes stepping out of their comfort zone, but it is absolutely necessary and it is so much easier to do with someone who knows how to guide you over the hurdles, around the pitfalls, and through the inevitable challenges.


When my first sales coach gave me the script to use to get my first client, I asked, “So, why do we do it this way?” He said, “Who cares? It works. Just do it.” Coaching in its simplest form gives you speed. If you’re content going at a slow pace and you have time to waste, then forget about everything I’m saying. Keep doing what you’re doing, and the good point is that you will get there eventually—hopefully.


The second and third elements that you need on your team ASAP are your mentors and peer support. Mentors are great as they have the experience doing what you want to do. The downside to mentors is that they’re generally not committed to your success like a coach is. They’re willing to help, but you have to go after them, they’re not going to chase you around, and often your access to them is limited. The peer support is valuable as it brings you some camaraderie, some friendly competition, and people to share in the growth experience together. You can learn from the experiences of the peer support team, which will allow you to make wiser choices in the future. The downside to peer support, though, is that there’s a lack of true accountability. As peers, if I let you slide, you can let me slide, and we’ll be better buds.



**Coach’s Note**

One of the best things you can invest in is speed (no, not the drug). Invest in what gets stuff done fast like team members, systems development, and technology. Why? Who cares! It works. Get stuff done fast! Have a book to write. Figure out how to do it in a week. Get it done ASAP. A good team increases your speed and expands your capacity.


Q: What’s the one thing you cannot afford to lose in the race to success?

A: Momentum. Anything that slows your momentum dramatically reduces your confidence and your capacity.


6) Fire, aim, ready

Pull the trigger and get your momentum rolling. You are already ready. Just identify the next step and take it—NOW. Start with identifying or reconnecting with your true passion then invest in yourself, get a coach, build your team, and get some speed (and some crack while you’re at it J).



**Coach’s Note**

I recently had a friend come to me for some coaching to jumpstart his business. He said, “I’m feeling a little overwhelmed and unfocused.”

I said, “What is overwhelming?”

He said, “I have this and that to do, and it’s keeping me from getting to what I really want and need to grow my business.”

“Okay,” I replied. “I’m hearing you say that if you get this and that done, then you can move on to doing the next projects and you will feel less overwhelmed and be focused on what you need to be doing to help you take your business to the next level.”

“Yes, absolutely, I just can’t get to it,” he said.

“Okay, then here’s what you’re going to do. First off, you’re going to write me a check for $1,000. Then you’re going to go to your office and start working on your project. If you’re not done by Friday at 5 pm, I’m cashing the check. Thank you and good-bye.” Friday he called. Project done!


Sometimes we just need to stop making it so dang complicated. Create an accountability structure and get to work. 


Tony Robbins on the Seasons of Life »

I saw Tony Robbins on TV this week promoting his new reality show (which I missed watching because I forgot to Tivo it; I’ll check it on Hulu). He always shares a great perspective to consider, and here’s what I picked up, in case you missed it:

The late, great Jim Rohn, world-famous motivational speaker, always talked about “the seasons of our life” such that we all experience seasons just like Mother Nature provides us spring, summer, fall, and winter. The winter season is a time of struggle and survival. There are many difficulties during winter, but it is always followed by the thaw of spring. Spring is a time of new life. It is a rebirth and a time to nurture and carefully attend to the new opportunities that are coming into being. And then comes summer, which is a time of cultivation, growth, and protection. Summer is when the planted seeds mature and blossom. It is a time when we must protect the fruits of our labor and prepare for the fall harvest. Following every summer comes the fall, when we reap what we sow and prepare ourselves for the inevitable returning winter.

I love this analogy of life and how it applies to our everyday existence. As Tony mentioned this week, his perspective is that, as a whole, we are still in a winter season, which we have been enduring for two years now. Just like winter, there are some days of sunshine, but we are still experiencing many tough times.

Three tips he gave us to continue to endure this winter season successfully:

1) Don’t lie to yourself, and don’t make it worse than it is.

I think Tony put a very interesting spin on this concept. When I think about “not lying to myself,” I look at how I try to downplay the severity of the issue and make it less of the big deal that it is. On the other hand, Tony said, “Don’t make it worse than it is,” which I actually see a lot with business owners. Many people are allowing themselves to suffer much more than they need to.

2) See it better than it is.

This is a huge concept and one into which we really need to put more conscious and focused effort. I am a huge advocate for creating and maintaining a powerful vision of the future. I spend a major chunk of time with each and everyone of my clients in creating and clearly articulating their vision for the future. This vision is what gives us direction as well as focus but, most importantly, it gives us hope and purpose. I have seen so many people lose sight of their vision, and it breaks my heart because I can feel their confusion and pain. I can see their struggle and watch them running to and fro chasing their tails, trying desperately to find some stable ground and something solid onto which to firmly hold. It’s a scary thing, but the great news is, with a little help from a good business coach, you can get your vision clear and you can get it fast. This is easily the fastest and most dramatic result that will produce the absolute greatest impact in any person, their business, and their life…and it happens FAST.

3) Go after role models; look for someone who’s done it so it doesn’t seem fake to you.

Tony really hit the nail on the head here. It’s so fun to create visions of the future, to dream big, and to let your imagination wander to visions of glory and riches, but when the reality train hits you smack in the head, all that you’re left with is a fabulous fantasy and an empty wallet. As an old friend used to say, “That and five bucks will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.” However, if you can find someone who’s done what you’re trying to do, someone who can see the picture you have painted, and someone who has the ability to help you turn your visions into reality, now you’ve just “Supermanned” that speeding locomotive of reality. I always promote that the first three aspects that need to be added to each and every person’s success team are a mentor, a coach, and a peer-support group. There is just too much that needs to be done, too many big, life-changing decisions that need to be made, and all of it is happening so fast that we simply cannot waste time being in any sort of stuck, confused, frustrated, scared, unsure, or timid state of mind and try to get through it on our own.

So, if you won’t take it from me, at least take it from one of the greatest transformational leaders on the planet and come out of denial, clarify your vision of a brilliant and prosperous future, and find those successful role models to emulate and be coached by so you can be ready—because spring is coming!!!

Killer Opportunities to Grow Your Business »

One of the key traits many million-dollar business owners share is the ability to make decisions quickly and to take appropriate, timely action. However, making decisions quickly doesn’t mean that the person is reckless. Instead, it means the million-dollar business owner is willing to invest in opportunities and take calculated risks. There are a lot of risks in developing a million-dollar business, and right now is one of the riskier times in recent U.S. history. Many of us have been burned over the past few years, and a lot of us have lost our previous investments—but that doesn’t mean that we need to stop playing the game just because we had some failures. As one of my previous mentors used to say, “The game is always on!” It’s true; the game of success does not stop. It doesn’t wait. It doesn’t slow down. It doesn’t care if you lost all your money in real estate, your house, and your job. The game of success goes on.

            In the last Million-Dollar Business Strategies and Secrets event, I asked the audience to give me their reasons why we should all be striving to develop a million-dollar business. After the expected answers like peace of mind, lifestyle, comfort, and security, finally the best answer of all popped up: WHY NOT? 

            There’s no benefit to playing small. When I ask business owners why they are not pushing to grow their businesses, the answer I hear is usually some manifestation of a fear. For example, growing the business may mean hiring more staff, which means additional headaches associated with managing a team. This avoidance of an uncomfortable outcome—translated as fear—stops their growth and, consequently, drops the anchor on their ship sailing towards their dreams of peace of mind, a comfortable lifestyle, and security.

            The reality is that there are so many ways to work around our fears about massive business growth, no matter what they are, but we have to first make the decision that we are committed to having what we want—everything we want—and then just keep our eyes, ears, and hearts open to discovering and allowing the killer opportunities to come our way.

            As I said before, great business minds—those same people who tend to have all of the time, money, and freedom we wish we had—are the type of people who are willing to invest in opportunities and take calculated risks. In today’s economic condition, the absolute best place to invest is in our own knowledge. The game has changed in the past few years. There are new rules, and the way we used to play the game to become successful is not always the best path today. We must invest our time, energy, and finances into gaining the knowledge of how to more effectively play the game the way it is being played right now.

            So keep your eyes peeled, your ears tuned, and your heart open for those killer opportunities to gain valuable knowledge and insight that could change your life forever. And take advantage of those killer opportunities. Drop whatever else you’re doing and go for it.

Thursday, Biz Breakthrough Series, Friday, June 25th, Million Dollar Business Strategies and Secrets Revealed »

Hi it’s Coach Troy, I wanted to share something with you really quick…
Did you know that sometime ago William M Marston, psychologist and inventor of the first polygraph- lie detector test, as well as the creator of famous comic book character Wonder Woman once asked 3000 people…
“What have you to live for?”
He was shocked to find that 94 percent were simply enduring the present while waiting for the future. They described this as “waiting for something” to happen. They had “no definite purpose in life.”

NO DEFINITE PURPOSE IN LIFE?? Wow!! That’s shocking to me…but not surprising.
Can I share with you the number one reason I see that most business owners are not more successful?
They have no true purpose.
At some point you will come to rely on your true purpose to pull you through three of the toughest challenges a business owner will face on the road to becoming a millionaire and more…
* Fear
* Confusion
* Lack of confidence
I’ve had to endure each of these three challenges many times and each time I relied on my commitment to my true purpose to bring me the strength, determination, clarity, and focus to drive forward and keep pursuing my dream.
Part of my true purpose is to provide you the information and resources you need to take your business to the next level. That may mean growing to a million dollar business or growing from a million to many millions more. To do that I have adopted the philosophy of “The Power of 1 Idea” which says that everything we have or will ever have all started with one idea. So I am committed to providing you the resources and opportunities to get that one idea that will completely transform your life and your business.
Coming up this week and next week are two incredible opportunities for you…
