    Favorite Success Quote “You have the life you are willing to put up with.”
    Key Points 1. You Are Responsible for Being F*cked 
    Whenever you (or someone that you know) is confronted with the cold reality that they are utterly and completely f*cked, the initial reaction is almost always one of blame.
    “My parents were terrible! You don’t understand.”
    “Yeah, well I grew up poor so this is just how it has to be”
    “You don’t know what it’s like to be an [insert minority group of choice]!”
    Although every statement above could be true, it doesn’t change the facts.
    You are 100% responsible for your life.
    Why would you let anyone else control even a fraction of 1% of your life?
    Do you really want to leave your future, your potential, and your one life to the whims of other people? If not, then you must accept full responsibility for your life and move one.
    2. Authenticity is Inherently About You
    Whenever people hear the phrase “Just be authentic”, they often assume that they now have free reign to say and react to others in any way that they choose.
    This is not authenticity, it’s called being an ass hole.
    Authenticity in your interactions is about expressing your truth and owning that truth.
    Let me give you an example of what I mean.
    Let’s say that a client of yours responded to an error in a manner that was completely inappropriate and unacceptable on both a personal and professional level.
    You are feeling frustrated, hurt, and angry by their actions and feel compelled to bring them up.
    There are two ways of going about this.
    The first way, (which most people choose) is to make the interaction about them.
    “How dare you treat me that way! You are such an ass hole and you clearly don’t value our working relationship! You can take this project and shove it because I can’t stand this crap anymore.”
    Although the statement might be true, it’s not productive because it’s focused on the other person instead of you.
    A more authentic way to approach the conversation would be to say:
    “Look, what you did yesterday made me feel very hurt and undervalued. I don’t know whether you understand how your actions affected our professional relationship, but I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be able to continue working with you if we have another incident like that.”
    When you shift the focus from the other person and onto yourself, you step into your power and own your responsibility for your feelings and your response to those feelings.
    3. Someone Somewhere Has Dealt with What You Are Dealing With 
    It’s funny how often I hear the words “No one knows what I’m going through”.
    It doesn’t really matter what the topic is about.
    It could be an abusive childhood, a controlling partner, a crappy boss, bad health, or any wide variety of ailments and general shittiness.
    But the simple fact of the matter is that someone somewhere has experienced the exact same thing that you are struggling with and they have turned this perceived weakness into their greatest strength.
    Sean Stephenson was born with a genetic deformity that stunted his growth, permanently confined him to a wheelchair, and weakened him so much that he’s broken every bone in his

    Favorite Success Quote “Mental health requires an allegiance to reality at all costs to consequences ”
    Key Points 1. You Must Accept Reality 
    The first step to developing true mental health and emotional control is to accept the reality in which you live.
    As the famous words written on maps and billboards across the world state: “You are here”
    Wherever ‘here’ is…
    If you wish to create the life of your dreams you must start where you are. You must develop real clarity on where you are in the important areas of life, where you want to be, and (most importantly) what’s holding you back.
    I challenge you, right now, to write down the answer to the following questions:
    Where am I in my health? Where am I in my relationships? Where am I in my happiness, adventure, and play time? Where am I in my career? Until you have a clear picture of where you are, you will never be able to get where you are going.
    Be real with yourself and accept reality. Because once you do, life get’s a helluva lot more exciting.
    2. Maximizing Your Potential Requires Enduring Pain 
    If any of you have watched the (now) mainstream classic “Rick and Morty” then you probably remember the episode with the Meseeks box.
    If you have a particularly astute memory, then you probably remember their tagline: “Existence is pain“.
    Although you don’t often uncover valuable life lessons from cartoons on Adult Swim, I’ve gotta hand it to the writers of the show… They were right.
    Existence is pain.
    Because there is nothing in life that can be achieved without pain and nothing that can be truly appreciated without adversity.
    Pain is what makes existence valuable, it’s what makes life worth a damn.
    Think about the Olympics that are going on right now.
    How would you feel if you walked up to the podium and were simply handed an Olympic Gold Medal?
    Sure, some of you might use it to brag or try and pick up women, but most of you reading this would feel completely and utterly cheated.
    Why?
    Because you didn’t earn it. You didn’t endure the pain of early morning workouts, strict diets, and sobriety.
    You didn’t experience the pain of grueling training sessions and years of dedication for that one moment of victory.
    Pain is what makes life valuable. So stop avoiding pain and start accepting it.
    Because the more comfortable you become with pain, the more pleasure and, ultimately, fulfillment you will experience.
    3. Uncover Your Values… And Live Them 
    One of the biggest problems holding men back from achieving their true purposes is that most men aren’t living their lives based on their values.
    In fact, most men aren’t even consciously aware of what they value.
    Sure, every guy can tell you that he values family or fitness or money or success but do his actions reflect these values?
    Have you taken the time to clearly define the values that drive your life? Have you asked yourself the tough questions to help you understand what you care about and why?
    If not, then you are like a ship at sea with no rudder, a feather in the wind. Without clearly defined values you have no purpose, no m

    Favorite Success Quote “Take responsibility for your own life and never give that responsibility to other people”
    Key Points 1. Everything Is Your Fault
    Read that sentence again and internalize it.
    Everything in your life is your fault. Good. Bad. It doesn’t matter.
    It’s your fault.
    And that’s a good thing…
    If everything is your fault or, should we say, your responsibility, then you have control over everything in your life.
    When you take 100% responsibility for everything in your life and everything not in your life you are the only one who has the power to change things.
    Now I don’t know about you…
    But I would sure as hell prefer taking an uncomfortable amount of responsibility for my results than allowing someone else to determine my levels of achievement and success.
    Accept that everything is your fault.
    Unless you internalize this truth you will constantly give you power away and fail to reach the goals you have set.
    2. Align Your Values with Your Daily Actions 
    One of the first steps to achieving the life that you want is defining the values that will drive you towards your dreams.
    Your values (should) determine how you conduct yourself, how you handle business, and how you treat others.
    This is not a matter to leave to chance or shirk off with a dismissive “It’s not really that important”.
    Living a life that is congruent with your values means the difference between living your biggest dreams and ambitions and wallowing away in mediocrity.
    When you have clearly thought through values that you have defined, written down, and committed to living in your day to day life, every decision becomes easier.
    You no longer have to debate decisions constantly in your head.
    You can simply analyze your options, refer back to your values, and make the decision that is most in line with your #1 priority.
    I challenge you to sit down after this interview has concluded and really think about your values.
    What do you value? What forces do you want driving and shaping your life? What outcomes are truly important to you and which ones are merely societally incepted b.s. that is incongruent with your deepest identity?
    When you can answer this question and authentically live it, life and all of the amazing experiences within it, are yours for the taking.
    3. Your Most Valuable Asset is Your Mental Energy 
    People will often (mistakenly) tell you that your most precious resource is your time.
    They are wr

    Favorite Success Quote “You must take action before you can take over.”
    Key Points 1. Knowledge is Only Power if You Take Action 
    You often hear the phrase “Knowledge is Power”.
    This simply isn’t true.
    In and of itself, knowledge is useless.
    Knowledge doesn’t do anything. It can’t add money to your bank account. It can’t make you ripped. It can’t help you find the woman of your dreams. It can’t do a damn thing.
    As the (in)famous entrepreneur and investor Derek Sivers said:
    If [more]information was the answer we’d all be billionaires with six packs.
    But we aren’t and it isn’t.
    Knowledge is only power if it’s applied.
    It’s only worth a damn if you use it.
    It only matters when you leverage your knowledge to take massively informed action towards achieving the life of your dreams.
    2. Everything But Death is Temporary 
    Everything in life is temporary.
    Good and bad.
    All of the pains, frustrations, and heartaches will eventually end.
    All of the success that you are enjoying will one day grind to a halt.
    Everything in your life will end.
    And this is a beautiful thing.
    Because life is temporary and fleeting, like the cliche feather in the wind, everything falls into place.
    When you are struggling you know that your struggles are temporary.
    When you are at the top, you take the time to savor the moment because you know that it will end.
    Keep perspective on your life, the good and the bad, by always remembering that “This too shall pass”.
    3. Your Past Doesn’t Matter 
    This year alone, Ryan’s company will generate more multi-millions of dollars in revenue.
    Which illustrates a very important lesson…
    Your past doesn’t f*****g matter.
    Who you were yesterday has no bearing on who you are today and Ryan is living proof of this.
    At 19, Ryan was strung out on every drug that you can imagine and dealing full time to make ends meet.
    He was eventually busted by the feds and sent to federal prison for several years.
    When he was released, he dove into the world of sales and eventually, was making so much money in real estate that he was again targeted by the police who thought he was still selling drugs.
    They raided his house and found zero evidence of any drug possession, use, or trafficking. In order to save face, they arrested for felon possession of a firearm (which resided in a legal grey zone).
    He was sentenced to prison again except this time, his then-wife stole all of his assets and left him for the man with whom she’d been having an affair.
    Talk about a mess, right?
    Upon his second release, Ryan dove into the world of sales again taking special care to keep his nose clean and, in the last two years, has grown his sales coaching business from $0 to multimillions in revenue.
    If a convicted felon and former junky who lost everything can rise from the ashes and rebuild his life to the top then so can you.
    So cut the excuses and quit using your past as a crutch.
    You are capable of achieving anything that you desire.
    But you have to overcome your excuses and hustle.
    4. It’s All Sales 
    In life and business, you must become a master of sales.
    I know that the word conjures up images of sleazy used car dealers and snake oil peddlers but let me assure you, everything that you do is sales.
    Want to meet the woman of your dreams and convince her to marry you? That’s sales.
    Want to get funding for your new startup? That’s sales.
    Want to convince your kids that it’s important to read personal growth

    Favorite Success Quote “Happiness before goals”
    Key Points 1. Put Your Happiness Before Goals
    Happiness should not be something that we defer until we achieve a specific goal.
    It should be a state of being that we cultivate every single day. It should be an emotion that we make incredibly easy to achieve.
    If you are reading this blog right now you have a lot to feel happy about. You have your sight. You have an internet connection and a device that is more powerful than the computers NASA used to put a man on the moon. You have full control of your brain and an ability to comprehend complex ideas and sentences.
    You have a LOT to be happy about.
    So act like it. Lower your barrier to happiness.
    Make a conscious effort to cultivate more happiness in your life by making it stupid simple to feel happy.
    When you wake up each morning, take a moment to feel happy for the warm sheets and cozy blankets covering your body. When you walk into work (even if you hate it) be happy that you have some sort of employment. When you come home each day, be happy that you have a roof over your head and food in your belly.
    Be happy now.
    Because now is all that we have.
    2. Fulfillment is Dependent on Direction
    So often people assume that fulfillment is dependent on achieving some goal or arriving at some arbitrary destination.
    It’s not.
    Fulfillment should depend on one thing and one thing only… Direction.
    Sit down in a quiet place later this week and really ask yourself what direction you want to take your life.
    Don’t tie this to a specific goal or outcome, simply a direction.
    Do you want to move in the direction of more physical fitness? Greater financial freedom? More love and abundance?
    Whatever you decide, write it down and then commit to take three actions each day that move you in that direction.
    3. Pain is a Messenger 
    Most people try to ignore or hide from pain. This is like trying to put a bandaid on cancer.
    Pain is a messenger. It’s there to tell you that something is broken and you need to fix it.
    If you have a broken arm, a shot of morphine will numb the pain but it won’t solve the problem. You need to visit a hospital, get a cast, and allow your bones to heal.
    Pain in your life is the same way.
    If you are depressed, anxious, or feeling overwhelmed… Good.
    This is a sign that something in your life isn’t working. And you have the power to fix it.
    Whenever you experience pain don’t run from it. Feel it. Experience it fully and sit in it for a few hours.
    Ask yourself, “What is this pain trying to tell me?”
    Are you in the wrong job or relationship? Struggling to be disciplined with your finances? Overweight and unhealthy?
    Before you run from the pain always try to uncover why you are experiencing pain in the first place.
    Because until you solve the root cause of the problem, you will never truly overcome the pain.
    4. Focus on Financial Freedom First 
    People will often begin their journey of self-transformation by trying to fix their relationships, their career, or pursuing more of their passions.
    In most cases, this approach is completely backward.
    The first step that you should take to building your dream life and achieving your biggest goals is to achieve financial freedom.
    Until you have the money to do what you want, when you want, with whom you want, everything else should be secondary.
    Financial freedom will revolutionize every aspect of your life.
    It will allow you to

    Favorite Success Quote “No one ever drowned by falling in the water. They drowned by staying there.” ~Steve’s Father
    Key Points 1. It’s Not About How You Go Down It’s About How You Get Up 
    Life is hard.
    It will kick the crap out of you and leave you on the ground and there is very little you can do to avoid this.
    So stop trying to fight failure and accept it.
    You are GOING to fail. You are going to mess up. You are going to make bad decisions. You are going to lose money. You are going to fail at important relationships.
    You are going to fall down.
    But that’s not what is important.
    Everyone in the history of humanity has fallen down. What history cares about, what the marketplace and the “gods” of success care about is how you get up.
    If you are willing to pick yourself up off the ground, get back up, and start swinging again, life will reward you greatly.
    If you are willing to push through adversity, smile in the face of failure, and persevere no matter how many times you fall down, you will eventually succeed.
    Failure is inevitable.
    It’s what you do after you fail that makes all the difference.
    2. People Will Pay to Avoid Rejection and Humiliation 
    If you are struggling to make ends meet, one of the quickest ways that you can increase your income is by becoming comfortable with rejection and humiliation.
    People all over the world will pay handsomely to avoid the discomfort of rejection.
    It’s simply part of human nature.
    Humiliation and rejection are not pleasurable experiences. But if you can learn to overcome your fear of rejection and humiliation and then leverage that skill to help others, there is no limit to the amount of money and influence you can create.
    3. Communication Opens the Doors of Life 
    The “Secret Sauce” to becoming wildly successful in 2018 and beyond is simple… Master the art of communication.
    While everyone else stares down at their cell phones, stays addicted to their Crackberries, and struggle to make small talk while they’re in line for a coffee, you can accelerate your success by learning to communicate.
    Learn how to cut through the b******t and start interesting conversations.
    Master the art of building reciprocity.
    Learn how to persuade people and connect with power players. Master the art of gift giving.
    Become a master communicator and the world will become your oyster.
    Our society is slowly but surely losing its ability to connect and collaborate.
    If you can maintain and improve your ability to network and build authentic relationships, there is no limit to what you can achieve.
    4. Be Memorable 
    The worst crime that you can commit in a social situation is to be boring.
    The world is filled with boring and uninteresting people.
    It’s your job to stand out from the crowd, be authentic, and be m
