    You’ve Got To Figure Out Your Life

    You’ve Got To Figure Out Your Life

    In this episode, John and Kelly discuss that is on you to figure out your life. John talks about coming to grips with this when he was 50 years old. And not only did he have to accept full responsibility, he also saw that he had to figure out the specific actions he had to take to create the life he wanted. A big challenge. But then the answer appeared. It came from think and grow Rich. Create immense clarity about your life. Exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. Feed that to yourself every day. Then the right actions happen automatically without thinking. But what’s significant here is that when you start with the end in mind and work backwards, the right actions to take become apparent. During this podcast John and Kelly talk about how most people are just winging life, re-creating the past. To some degree this is happening because people are shallow thinking. They’re not deep thinking. That’s a result of the flip through culture we live in. But here’s the bottom line of what we learned today. Accept the fact that you have to accept full responsibility for your life. Not looking for anyone else or looking for external factors to change. Then you need to figure out the right actions to take. That happens from starting with the end in mind and working backwards. See you what you want to achieve and the right actions will become obvious. Then feed that to yourself every day. That’s what makes the right actions then happen automatically without thinking. Profoundly simple.

    John Mitchell
    John’s story is pretty amazing. After spending 20 years as an entrepreneur, John was 50 years old but wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. To rectify that, he decided to find the “top book in the world” on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That Book is Think & Grow Rich. The book says there’s a SECRET for success, but the author only gives you half the secret. John figured out the full secret and a 12 minute a day technique to apply it.
    When John applied his 12 minute a day technique to his life, he saw his yearly income go to over $5 million a year, after 20 years of $200k - 300k per year. The 25 times increase happened because John LEVERAGED himself by applying science to his life.
    His daily technique works because it focuses you ONLY on what moves the needle, triples your discipline, and consistently generates new business ideas every week. This happens because of 3 key aspects of the leveraging process.
    John’s technique was profiled on the cover of Time Magazine. He teaches it at the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business, which is one the TOP 5 business schools in the country. He is also the “mental coach” for the head athletic coaches at the University of Texas as well.

    Doing Your Best Doesn't Work

    Doing Your Best Doesn't Work

    In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the idea that the doing your best doesn’t work. John discusses that when he was 40 years old, he adopted the strategy for success of just doing his best. That’s all he controlled. So that’s what he focused on. Doing his best. But that didn’t produce big results. Then he got enlightened in his 50s. He understood fundamentally how success works. It comes down to your daily actions. And if you don’t know the proper daily actions to take, even though you might be doing your best, you won’t have big success. What John learned is that the key to being successful is creating immense clarity about your life. Defining exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. By defining that, then you see the right actions you take. It becomes obvious. And then you feed that clarity to yourself every day. That impacts your daily actions. And your upgraded daily actions then creates the life you want.
    The point of all that is that just doing your best may not have you doing the right actions, despite your best intentions. John also talks about in his 30s and 40s he was only playing at 5% of his potential. He didn’t have a high level of control over himself. In his 50s he did from figuring out the full secret of think and grow Rich. And lastly John talks about how in his 50s doing his best came down to five things. Effort, focusing on what moves the needle, tuning into reality, consistently growing every week, and understanding how the human mind works. In John’s 30s and 40s, he only knew to give effort. To get up at 5:30 AM each day and work hard.

    Wisdom Transfer Dilemma

    Wisdom Transfer Dilemma

    In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the challenge of taking wisdom and sharing it with other people. John talks about a statue that sits in his den. It has three men that are climbing. The lowest guy is struggling, the middle guy is going sideways, and the third guy is going straight up. When John looks at that statue each morning, he thinks about his own life. The guy at the lowest level was was John in his 30s. The guy going sideways was John in his 40s. And the guy going straight up John in his 50s. John sees that when he started going straight up in his 50s, he saw and understood things he never understood before. He gained wisdom from the book Think and Grow Rich. He was just operating on a higher level. He understood how the human mind worked, and that was the difference Kelly talks about how she has learned from other people as well. But so often people in their 30s and 40s don’t think they have that much to learn. So they’re not receptive to the wisdom of others. But John points out that oftentimes the wisdom is something profoundly simple. It’s not like you’re learning to split the atom. Like for John learning that 95% of his daily actions was unconscious was critical. Learning how the human mind works. Ultimately he learned how to work smarter not harder.

    Most People Are Re-Creating The Past-Joe Dispenza

    Most People Are Re-Creating The Past-Joe Dispenza

    In this episode John and Kelly discuss an idea that comes from Joe Dispenza. He says that when we wake up each morning, we are oriented to our recent past. To our familiar past. So when our eyes open each morning, three things are going on. First we’re innately wired for survival. Which causes us to be fear-based and reactive. Secondly, 95% of our daily thoughts and actions are unconscious. And third, and this is what Joe Dispenza adds to the equation, we are oriented to the recent past. So the effect is when you open your eyes each morning, you’re fear-based and reactive. With the vast majority of your thoughts being fear-based, with 95% of them being unconscious. And you’re thinking about the recent past. Your problems and may be little things that hurt you over the last few days. That then produces feelings. And those feelings create more negative thoughts. It’s a spiraling negative loop that causes you to continually re-create the past. Thoughts are the language of the mind and feelings are the language of the body. So when you get in this negative loop to continually re-create the past, nothing is pulling you forward. That’s why the think it be it 12 minute a day methodology is so powerful. Where you articulate the succinct articulation of your desired life. Exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish and precisely how you can achieve your clearly defined goals.

My new favorite podcast!

I’ve read the book “Think and Grow Rich” a number of times - but I never really knew how to apply it to my life and business.

This podcast has helped me to clearly understand exactly what I need to do in order to actually apply the principles to my life.

As a result, I’ve finally been able to start living the way that I’ve wanted to live, and getting the results in my business I’ve wanted to achieve.

ReZoomer ,

If you’ve done it…it ain’t bragging

Baseball great Dizzy Dean said that. John Mitchell and Kelly Hatfield have done that. What makes this podcast so attractive is that it is real, personal and sincere. You will learn exactly what to do to transform your own life. Make John and Kelly your mentors.
