The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 488 – Challenge Yourself To Become Great

Many years ago, when I was just starting my career, I was working with Bob Proctor and attending his seminars. After a seminar ended, most people would run to the pool to relax, while I would go up to my hotel room and make sales calls. I took the work way more seriously than most of my peers did.

In business, you’re responsible for everything. You must be able to identify opportunities and know how to build off of them. You must take your skill level to a place that’s above and beyond what anyone else is willing to do, so that you become irreplaceable. Most people don’t take this responsibility seriously enough.

People want to live an extraordinary life—but they don’t want to do what it takes to get there. Yet they’ll BS themselves into thinking they’ve done the work.

In today’s episode you’ll learn:


    • You could have an extraordinary life if you do something amazing with the opportunity right in front of you
    • There are no days off in business —you can’t skate through the day (there’s no time, and the ramifications are too huge)
    • Sales is the foundation of everything in business 
    • How I committed to myself by saying, “I’m not going to stop—there won’t be a day when I don’t do what’s necessary”
    • How Richard Branson started an airline from nothing, and now works with the best people on the planet—because of who he is
    • Why you must constantly learn something new, or else your company won’t grow 


Plus, I share how I started selling in every circumstance imaginable, so that I could prove that excuses weren’t real, and anyone can sell in any situation. I made sales in the bathroom. I sold to a cop who was about to give me a ticket. I sold on Christmas day. I even sold to Steph Tuss (who’s now my CEO) in the elevator. I had to prove to myself that I could it, so that I could lead others to do the same.
