Success Is Painful

What Do Getting Into Shape and Building a Successful Business Have in Common? Pain. Believe me, I know first hand. Having helped build the Rich Dad company’s IT infrastructure from the ground up and having gone from 28% body fat to just 14% in just 12 weeks. I understand the meaning of the word pain. I understand what it means to push through the pain. To endure the pain. The question is: Do you have what it takes to push through the pain no matter what? To see your goal so clearly that no amount of pain will stop you. There were times during my 12 week training program where I said to myself, “What in the $^#& are you doing this for? What were you thinking?” Each time those questions came up, I had one answer for myself, “Because this is what your goal was. This is what you told yourself you were going to do.” It also helped that I had announced my goal to the entire team at Rich Dad at one of our Tuesday Morning meetings. Once I did that, I was committed. I had to push through whatever pain the trainers threw at me. The same goes for building a business. Is it always fun and games? Hell no! Building a business is painful. Sticking to a goal of making your business successful is sometimes painful. The bottom line is that most things that are worth doing, are painful, or at least scary. Imagine if climbing Mount Everest was as easy as a walk in the park? Then everyone would do it. In fact it is extremely difficult, requires a ton of preparation, a lot of pain and sacrifice. That is why so few people go through with it and reach the ultimate mountain climbing goal of standing on top of the world. The same can be said for successful businesses. Imagine if it were a walk in the park to build a company like Apple? Then everyone would do it. There would be world-class companies on every corner. But that is simply not the case. Imagine what Steve Jobs went through when the board of directors kicked him out… of the company HE FOUNDED. Pain? I guarantee it. The caterpillar emerging from the chrysalis goes through an incredible struggle, an enormous amount of pain. The goal? Flight. Talk about motivation. Are you ready to step up and endure the pain you will need to push through in order to reach your goals? Go here to read the rest: Success Is...

Need vs. Power

We just got out of a meeting with Robert and Kim where I learned a valuable lesson. The relationship between a person’s need and their power. So, here is how I understand it: when your need is high, such as you are in a position where you need the money, or need the job, or need a favor, you power is, as a result, low. *Geek Alert* I kept thinking about the scene in Star Wars Episode IV where Luke has to sell his land speeder because he is about to leave the planet forever and head off to Alderan with Obi Won Kanobi.He is disappointed at the price his speeder demands due to the fact that a new model was just released. His power in the negotiation was very low because his need was very high. I have experienced the same thing, but on the other side of the deal. When I walk into a car dealership, I am constantly talking to myself, saying “You don’t really need this car. It is just fine if you leave here driving the same car you did when you came in.” When I am in that frame of mind, my power shoots through the roof! There is no pressure. The sales person has nothing on me because I am more than willing to walk away. When you are negotiating a sale, or attempting to recruit someone into your business, being a low need gives you all the power. Here is the original: Need vs....

Hanging With Mike Dillard

This weekend I was invited to be a student at the MLM Traffic Formula 101 Live event in Austin, Texas, USA. Mike Dillard, who wrote MLM Traffic Formula (and many other books), has become a great friend and mentor over the past few months. He has provided extremely valuable lessons, feedback and advice that have changed the way we think about internet marketing at Rich Dad. Being here as a student has been eye opening, to say the least. I have an entirely new appreciation for how effective internet marketing is done. And how much I don’t know! Here are a few of the basics: * Your list… is everything. * Establish a relationship with the people on your list – Speak to your contacts as individuals, not as a group * Provide overwhelming value and education * Be real – People can spot BS from a mile away * Create systems that leverage your content I am extremely excited about what I have learned so far and I am working very hard to implement it. John p.s. The photo above is of Mike’s 2006 Aston Martin Vantage. He was gracious enough to let me sit down and fire it up last night at his house. Amazing! See more here: Hanging With Mike...

Interview Richard Laermer 2011 Trendspotting for the Next Decade

Interview with 2011 Trendspotting for the Next Decade author Richard Laermer.   Richard Laermer the author of Trendspotting and Punk Marketing joined me for an interview on My Success Gateway.  What do you get a when you put a PR guy together with a consultant and small business owner? A lot of talking and a lot of fun. Richard and I cover a lot of ground in this call but the main thrust of it is his 2008 release of 2011 Trendspotting for the Next Decade. Richard owns a PR Agency in New York City. He knows how to use words. He uses words to craft his messages and sometimes his messages are subtle and sometimes they are in your face. We cover what is right with the media and what is wrong with the media and how people use the media and how the media uses people. The conversation helps people to use trends to their advantage and how to find these trends. Richard talks about being real in the decade where mediocrity has been the norm since the Clinton Administration. Laermer being the cynical guy he is talks about responsibility and doing more and completing everything from thoughts to projects. He has a positive outlook and is willing to assist others into the future.  This is an enjoyable chat. Share This Blog more….
