Key quotes:

  • “Every challenge is a chance for you to make improvements and experience growth in yourself and your business.”
  • “One of the best things about investing in a mentor, advisor, or consultant is they’re going to teach you how to avoid making the mistakes.”
  • “A limitation or a struggle or a challenge is, most of the time, just your perception and association to it. What many people see as challenges I see as opportunities.”
  • “Most of the time we create perceived limitations about why we don’t have or why we can’t have the things we really want, and then we make excuses or rationalize why we don’t or can’t have them.”
  • “If you follow a proven process that is going to get you to where you want to go as soon as possible, it’s almost like cheating the system.”
  • “The only reason why you’d ever procrastinate about doing something is because at your core, at some deep level, you’re associating more pain to doing that activity than you are to not doing that activity.”
  • “If you want to make a million dollars per year, you have to create at least a million dollars in value. Your financial income will be in direct proportion to the quantity, quality, and consistency of the value that you contribute to the world and create for other people.”
  • “Don’t look for ways to make money. Find ways to add value.”
  • “Get really good at saying no. When someone is trying to take your time, make the automatic response no. That way, you don’t find yourself caught up in a bunch of trivial activities giving your time to people and things that aren’t going to yield the highest ROI for you.”
  • “Anytime that someone is having a problem in their life, what it really boils down to is that person is not growing enough or not contributing enough. If you’re having an issue in your life or your business, you’re probably not having enough growth, or you’re probably not contributing and adding enough value to other people.”
  • “Your quality of life will be in direct proportion to the amount of time, energy, and resources that you spend investing in having that quality of life.”
  • “One of the keys to success is investing in the education necessary to help us achieve what we want to achieve in life.”
  • “Have a ridiculously overly optimistic mindset, and go out and find as many ways as possible to turn challenges into opportunities, and contribute and add value to other people.”
  • “Relentlessly add value to other people’s lives, because directly or indirectly, it will come back to you and you will start to skyrocket up with the trajectory of your success.”
