I’m loving my time in London and what a magical place to be living! There is a special vibe here that makes me feel like anything is possible!
There are lots of people in the information marketing world that will tell you that it is easy to make it as an entrepreneur. It is not! Part of the strategies I have used to make sales is to appeal to your laziness and greed. That is typically what appeals to people starting out and are wantrepreneurs or solopreneurs, and it works. However I´m frustrated by the low success rates of my students and I want more people to succeed. That is why I have started to develop the Hardcore MBA system to help more people follow through and become part of the 6% that make it in business and own a lifestyle company.
I will be revealing more about my program in the next couple of weeks, but for now please check out the YouTube video below to start getting into the mindset of what it takes to thrive.
This video is the first part of a six part series on Class 234 of the BUD/S training. What I really enjoyed was how they think and what they have to go through to make it. One core mindset that the winners apply is; “I´m just going to get through this repetition”. Brandon Webb said to me that if you think about having months ahead of similar pain, you are much more likely to quit. So only think about getting through the next repetition or action. Interesting enough that was what the founder of UGG´s also told me. He said; “If I knew how hard it was going to be I may have never started.”
How does this short term thinking fit with the understanding of compound interest and long term goals? I go to the gym minimum 3 times a week. Is it always easy to go? NO! But, long term I need and want to stay physically and mentally fit and that’s why I go to the gym weekly. However when the lazy part of me starts saying; Let´s do it later/Let´s do it tomorrow, I simply say to myself. Let´s just do it today. If you want to read more about understanding why simple principles and habits work check out The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson.
So YES! Think long term, but when it comes to following through only focus on one exercise or activity at a time. I have now started including this habit in my journalism. When I mark an H it indicated that I did something I should do, but did not want to do. Typically there is fear or pressure related to that activity. If you do ONE Hard thing a day your life will transform!

Odds of Qualifying for SEAL training
- The Navy recruits approximately 40,000 people each year
- Only about 6 percent of SEAL applicants meet the requirements.
- About 1,000 recruits make it to SEAL training
- About 250 complete their training
- Roughly 80% who make it to BUD/S don’t finish
