The Number One Reason You Feel So Damn Stuck!

Jan 16, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

There's only ONE reason you:

  • don’t take massive action.
  • have such a hard time making decisions.
  • downplay what you’re capable of.

You already know what it is. It’s fear.

Self-awareness is the first step to change. You need to understand and have clarity on what you’re being dominated by if you ever want to change.

Where does fear come from? Why do you feel it all the time?

Your brain doesn’t have any interest in making you happy. Its only job is to protect you. It’s a survival based mind.

Your biggest fears are our biggest waste of time. You need to change your perspective on it.

2,000,000 years ago, you were a caveman. And you haven’t evolved since then. You haven’t needed to. Back then, your priority was to eat, find shelter, and protect your family against wildlife and the elements of freezing cold. Those were your fears. You were focused 100% on SURVIVAL.

You were worried about the sabertooth tiger in the...

Using The Pain Of Your Past To Create Greatness

Jan 09, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

My childhood wasn’t enjoyable.

It was full of emotional challenges with people very close to me in my life. It involved:

  • walking on eggshells around certain people.
  • money as a symbol of pain.
  • a poor example of relationships.
  • almost 50,000 dollars being taken from me.
  • narcissistic family members.
  • love being used as a weapon against me.

I craved validation and acceptance because I never felt like I was enough. It wasn’t fun. It HURT.

For the longest time, I HATED my past. I was ANGRY.

I remember making myself a promise that I’d never be like that. I wouldn’t waste my life away. I'd create something amazing that provided us with an incredible life. So I started an online business helping people get healthy from home.

Only one problem: everything I tried didn’t work. I was SO stuck.

I'd need a mindset call to get motivated. Then I’d be hyped up for a couple days, and I’d message my sponsor and say, “I sent 200...

How To Set Goals (And Actually Achieve Them For Once)

Jan 02, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

How many years have you reflected on the past year and set your resolutions, only to find yourself 3 weeks later, out of motivation, feeling stuck, and wondering WHY this always happens to you!

Why I hated goal setting...

Because I'd never hit my goals

I’d either set a goal, look at it, and then think it was silly even to try OR I’d freeze in fear after I set the goal and not know why.

I got to a point where I was so sick of tired of never hitting my goals that I didn’t even set goals for myself because deep down, I didn’t believe that I could achieve them. So why the hell try?

And over the course of time and training my mindset to think differently, I realized why that was. I was setting goals from a fear-based, shitty state of mind.

How Mindset Makes Or Break Your Goals

When you’re in a shitty state, what happens? You set a shitty goal. And a shitty goal creates shitty action. And shitty action creates shitty results. And...

The Only Thing That Will Make Or Break Your 2019 Goals!

Dec 19, 2018
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

Persistence. That's it. But it's different than you think.

I went through a period where I wanted "success" so bad. I wanted the money, time, freedom and every single time I tried, it felt like nothing was working and I didn't understand why. I was doing everything that I was supposed to be doing. I was just stuck.

When's the last time you've actually set a huge goal?

Not a realistic goal. A BIG, SCARY goal?

Fun fact: If you set a bigger goal, you play life on a higher level and will achieve WAY more than if you were to establish a small, realistic target (even if you fail).

  • Most people will think you're crazy.
  • Most people won't believe you can do this.

Most of the world doesn't have what they want. They don't have your big goal. SO DON'T LISTEN TO THEM.

Most of the world isn't happy, isn't fulfilled, and is just getting by! They're living status quo lives. Why seek validation from that group of people?

Look at where most of the world is going and...

2 Laws That'll Drastically Increase Your Income

Dec 12, 2018
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

Today won't be the traditional way that you think. Little story:

For 5 years, I was creating an online network marketing business. That was my vehicle/ my ticket for living a "life by design" (Btw, you don’t need to want to start a business for this podcast to apply to you).

I'd go and try to recruit people to it so I could help them, and so I could create freedom in my life. But the harder and harder I tried, it seemed like it kept getting harder and harder to do. It felt like people started resenting me.

I was held back by something, and I couldn’t figure out what. And to be honest, there were LOTS of things getting in the way that I didn’t realize.

I didn’t understand that my income WAS NOT proportionate to the level of effort I put in.

I’d do my invitations, share on social media, use my product, etc. But something was still off. My income wasn’t growing.

I got so fucking pissed off because I had these big dreams and...

The Antidote To Fear And Anger (How To Solve Any Problem In < 3 Mins)

Dec 05, 2018

Today is special because I’ll give you one of the exercises that changed my entire life.

  • I used this to forgive people that hurt me.
  • I used this to give me direction in my career.
  • I used this to get unstuck in my network marketing business.

Do you have a problem you’re facing in your life that you can’t seem to solve? If you do, GOOD!

All the credit to Tony Robbins here.

The exercise we’re gonna do is something I learned from him. I don’t take credit for it. But it’s so powerful that if you really use it, it’ll make a profound impact on your life. So a HUGE thank you to Tony Robbins for teaching me this and giving me the ability to pay it forward to you.

THE SECRET SAUCE. THE CURE-ALL.

I used to think this was a crock of shit for the longest time!

You might know it as genuine gratitude.

It's IMPOSSIBLE to feel pain when you’re deeply grateful. Because in your life, you’re going to experience pain. Pain in life is guaranteed....

Burnout Prevention: 4 Ways To Stay Passionate When You Keep Failing

The Biggest Mistake Is Thinking Your Goals Cause Happiness

Business and success don’t cause happiness. HAPPINESS creates success. Loving your life now, as it presently IS, is how you become successful. 

You know the words, “fake it til you make it?” They're bullshit.

There’s a fine line between acting like a successful person and pretending you have success when you don’t.

When I started my online business, I WANTED the success and freedom. I put up Facebook posts about living a life by design when in reality, I was almost 6 figures in student debt. It was a load of BS. And these days, people can smell BS a mile away. So if I could go back and give myself advice, it'd be:

“Be successful until you make it.”

What does that mean? Successful people don’t exaggerate. They share their vision for what they want to create and they’re honest about where they’re at now (struggles and...

How To Love The Holidays When Your Family Always Ruins Them

Nov 21, 2018
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

I can totally relate to stressful families in so many ways. I DREADED the holidays most of my life.

Does this sound familiar?

Every time I would come home, it would cause stress and anxiety, and it would emotionally DRAIN me. Janiece and I even had a little joke called, “Operation Make Brad Love Christmas Again,” because I genuinely hated it.

Every year since I was a kid, it’s just STRESS. It’s just ANXIETY. There’s so much blame, anger, and resentment. There’s money stress. When one person isn’t around, someone else talks shit about that person.

It’s endless narcissism. There’s an unrealistically high expectation, and when I don’t meet those expectations, I’m made out to feel like I’m not worthy of love.

Last year, one of my family members completely avoided me the entire time I was home for Christmas, and I remember being in the car with Janiece crying about why that person...

The Secret To INSTANT Confidence (It's Not What You Think!)

Nov 14, 2018
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

The secret to confidence is WAY simpler than you think.

I was at a Tony Robbins "Unleash The Power Within" conference this past weekend, and I walked across a 2,000-degree bed of coals. I didn’t feel a thing. And I’m willing to guess you’re probably going, “HOW THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT?”

Now obviously there’s a strategy, but in that situation, what would stop most people? FEAR.

What’s the opposite of fear? Confidence.

Confidence can be called like a dog. And if you do it enough times, it’s like exercising a muscle… it’s not something you have to think about. It’s just something that happens.

So Tony Robbins explains something called, “STATE.”

STATE is the source of ALL emotion. STATE is how you go through life. If you’re in a depressed state, will you walk across a fire? No. Will you ask that person out? No. If you’re worried, will you do those things? No. So state is...
