Being successful is not easy, being a leader is not easy, and not getting torn down by negative friends or the media is even harder. My coaches have always told me that there is a lot of room at the top, but it’s the bottom that’s crowded. We have two choices in life, we can either live in an ocean of sameness or a lake of differentiation. The world, your country, and even your local community hungers for the next leader and after reading this article I am hoping it will be you. Being a leader is not easy and no one has been a better example of what a leader should exemplify than Nelson Mandela. A man who didn’t only inspire a country but a global world and the minds, hearts, and souls of billions. So what does it take to be a leader? Here are 5 transformational lessons that can turn you into the next leader Continue reading

Being successful is not easy. It seems everyone is rooting for you on the way up and once you make it, everyone wants to see you fall. I have always said that when someone can’t do something themselves they want to tell you that you can’t do it. Well on Sunday I saw a twitter blog post from Richard Branson explaining why he loves Necker island and he doesn’t do it to evade taxes. After reading this I was positive that this was an answer to some kind of attack. Well.. my gut instinct was right and sure enough, the Daily Mail in the UK did a whole piece on how Richard Branson evades taxes. The article went viral and now, Richard has to defend himself.
Yes I have been sued, but what successful person hasn’t? I live in America where everyone sues everyone for any reason and less than 98% actually go to trial. My coach, who has been with Donald Trump for 40 years, says that if you haven’t been sued you haven’t done any business. What people claim in the initial suit is never what ends up actually being admissible in court. What people never report is that I win these lawsuits because I refuse to settle and I will fight it to the end because I don’t believe in paying extortion money.
As you probably know, I have a very close and special relationship with the Trump family. Eric Trump and I have partnered on MANY projects, especially when it comes to various charities, such as the Eric Trump Foundation which helps support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to find cures for children with cancer.
Over the years, I’ve watched the Trump family with close eyes and have walked away with several key insights that any person walking down the path to success should take to heart.
Here are some of the most important lessons I’ve learned from Trump that will directly apply to you as well.
#1: Fail Forward
Failure is NOT something you should fear. Failure is something you should look forward to so you can learn from your mistakes, make sure you don’t repeat them, and tweak your approach for the next effort. Success takes time and does not happen overnight, regardless of what many “overnight millionaires’ will tell you. It’s the results of YEARS of failures, followed by getting back up again and trying again.
Every business owner faces the same dilemma…
The balancing act between tactical approaches to marketing for short-term profits, versus the more strategic approaches that bring in longer term profits and credibility.
One of the main flaws in the stock market lies in the fact that companies are evaluated on a very, very short-term basis. In that case, quarterly. If a company misses a target for one quarter, the stock typically drops instantly.
They are forced to think in terms of a 3-4 month window of opportunity.
Fortunately, for you as a small business owner, you don’t have stockholders and investors breathing down your neck to hit specific revenue goals or watch your shares plummet.
And that’s a good thing.
For a company to survive and grow for years, you must begin to think strategically. This creates long-term branding and success because you tend to focus on things that add more value to your customers lives.
To be more clear, let me give you an example. Continue reading
Throughout the years, people have tried finding commonalities between successful people to discover what made them successful in the first place.
They also look at people who have failed, then succeeded, failed again, and succeeded yet again.
I’ve done the same. Throughout my life I’ve made a study of the most important characteristics I saw within my role models.
And in that time I’ve discovered that every single successful person I have ever known has one thing in common.
Many people call it a flaw, due to the fact that it often creates controversy… jealousy… sometimes even anger and confusion.
I call it a strength because I’ve found it to be the single driving force to achieving long-term success.
Whatever you call it, it’s that these people simply REFUSE to give up, no matter what the cost.
They have a ferocious drive and hunger that makes them dig down into the depths of their beings and pull out tenacity and vigor very few of us have seen.
Think of Trump in the 90′s.
At that point he was a huge success. Yet the 90′s nearly bankrupted him. Most “normal” people would have sat home crying at night, praying for some miracle to come along to pull them out of the dumps of despair.
He got MORE aggressive… MORE assertive… MORE fanatical in all his dealings. He simply refused to take no for an answer.
But here’s the truth.
Rich people don’t despise people for saying these things about them. In fact, most rich people I know (myself included) feel nothing but sympathy for people who think they’re greedy and selfish.
After all, it’s a pretty lousy way to live your life.
When it comes down to it, rich people would LOVE for more people to become more rich. They do not want to “hold others down” and suppress their income. Absolutely not! As you begin to gain wealth you begin to accumulate a prosperity sense of thinking which says that money is infinite.
And that’s the truth.
Money IS infinite. There is no limit to the capabilities of human minds to create more value in the world around us. What we used to think of impossible just a few years ago is now accepted and used daily in our lives.
Just think of cell phones… TV’s… going to the moon… or flying. Continue reading
I don’t think there’s a person alive who grows up thinking “Nah, I’d rather not be successful. I’d rather just live a boring, meaningless life”.
Maybe someone has – but not you.
The problem is, the more successful you become, the harder it gets. As you gain more exposure and become more of a “success”, the target on your back becomes bigger… and bigger… and bigger.
My coach kept repeating a quote to me that I’ll never forget. It went like this…
“The higher the monkey climbs up the tree, the more his ass is exposed.”
Everybody loves a “rags to riches” story.
But do you know what’s even better to the media?
A “riches to rags” story. Everybody is captivated by those who scaled the mountain of success and then came tumbling down.
Just think about Trump in the 90′s. People were obsessed with his story of bankruptcy and gossiped that “he’d never make it back”.
(Look at him now)
The Internet has made this problem even worse. It’s so easy to hide behind a wall and purposely hurt other people because nobody knows who you are. You aren’t accountable for your actions anymore. The sad part is, many business owners use this deceitful tactic to bring down their more successful competitors.
I can’t even begin to describe how many times I’ve been attacked by my competitors, POSING as unhappy students, even though there wasn’t a shred of truth in the statement. Worse, people actually believe it!
The old saying “If it’s on the Internet, it must be true”… is unfortunately very true.
The question is…
Why Do People Resort To Hating Successful People?
The first reason is jealousy. Many people get jealous and envious of people who have what they don’t have. They think they were “lucky” to get it… or were born with good genes… or born into the perfect family… or one of a million other excuses.
There are no excuses. I started my career with $974 to my name. Now my net worth is in the 8-figures. Do you think I was “lucky”? Absolutely not! I created my own luck by working myself to the bone for years on end (and continue to do so)… and sheer determination to make something better of my life.
The second reason is something called mirroring.
Since most people don’t accept responsibility for what happens in their life, they will seek out scapegoats, like successful people, to protect their egos. After all, they don’t want to admit that me or you are more successful than them because we’ve dedicated ourselves to achieving success. They don’t want to admit that they just aren’t driven to find success.
It’s easier for them to point the finger… because it takes pressure off of them to achieve something great.
Here’s the point I’m heading towards.
You Are Who You Hang Out With
It’s NOT easy being successful today, but it IS worth the effort because, in my eyes, their is no reason for being alive if you aren’t striving towards success. You just have to take steps to counteract the attacks. The moment you become a target in the spotlight, people will stop at no ends to thwart your success.
It’s pathetic, but it happens.
Whether you’re successful now, or WANT to become successful, you need to develop the habit of hanging around other people who will uplift you, inspire you and drive you to achieve even greater levels of success.
Criticism isn’t easy to handle. Haters will always be haters and if you want to become successful you must learn to ignore them and spend more time with people “on your level”.
That’s why my business model focuses on holding LIVE events. I’ve set them up in a way that I literally can’t be successful unless I make YOU successful.
By attending one of them, you’ll be surrounded by people in the exact frame of mind you’re in. They are all on their way to becoming successful and can uplift you and inspire you to do the same. No one at these events is there to criticize you… if they do… they get kicked out immediately.
Right now, we’re running two major workshops in countries all around the world.
Workshop #1: The C7 Business Model Workshop
This is geared towards business owners or up-and-coming business owners who want to take their business to the next level. Throughout it I literally GIVE AWAY my entire business model, in response to my ex personal coach stealing mine. Instead of letting him benefit from it, I’m letting YOU take it for your own.
Workshop #2: The Below Market Value Tour
This is for those looking to add a new income stream to their life and get fabulously wealthy through real estate. It’s for anybody, business owner or employee. Since you’ll discover how to buy properties at 30% – 50% below market value, it drastically reduces any “risk” most people normally have in real estate.
This, again, reveals my exact model I personally use to buy my own real estate in countries not just in the United States… but in 13 different countries around the world.
The bottom line is this – if you want to be successful you need to do two things. Ignore the haters, and spend more time with people trying to achieve the same success you are.
Our workshops are held for one specific purpose. To make YOU successful and connect you with hundreds of others looking to accomplish the same goal.
I hope you’ll check one of them out and join us.
