It was October 22, 2012. I was sitting in my Organizational Behavior Class at BYU. I was somewhat miserable. I couldn’t fit into my clothes. I weighed nearly 330 lbs. I was confused. My professor Dr. Thompson taught a simple, yet, profound lesson on time management systems and implementing a system. I already knew this stuff but wasn’t living it.
I was also confused about my career direction. Do I stay and build with Vivint or do I pursue a career and mission utilizing my Master’s Degree?
That class period was the moment that everything turned around.
I made a decision and dropped 60 lbs. My confidence came back. I felt so much better, a night and day difference.
After applying decision analysis to my problem, I chose to go all in with Vivint. The very thing I was afraid of…the very thing I was almost embarrassed of…I was now embracing with every part of my soul.
I would adjust my school schedule to accommodate my work and I began implementing simple daily disciplines such as daily goal writing, daily gratitude, daily physical exercise and daily deposits into the emotional bank account with my wife and sons (stuff I knew already but finally decided to take action on).
We don’t need massive destruction to have an ‘aha’ moment. We don’t need to wait for a loved one to pass away before we reach out to our relationships that have fallen by the wayside.
We always, I repeat, we ALWAYS have the power to change our lives at any given moment.
What are YOU waiting for?
Quit playing small in your life.
Quit whining, complaining and blaming.
Quit the nonsense.
I know what it is like to play small and to whine, complain and to blame… because I began doing it. And then the moment came that everything changed.
If you’re overweight, change your course.
If you’re financially broke, change your friends.
If you’re relationships are zombie-like, change your heart.
If you’re unhappy, change your life.
If you hate your job change your job or change your perspective.
Your life only changes when you do. Things only get better when you do.
Make right NOW that moment…that everything changes.
P.S. What type of “moments” have you had to help you turn things around? Comment below…

Times are not challenging…they are changing. How to be resilient in today’s changing economic world . . . be able to keep moving forward, make quick adjustments and when a decision is made, move quickly and relentlessly on it.
There is still room for us and available to us. The most important skills in today’s market place . . . Ask, listen and understand and DO.
People looking for help are in debt, have poor health, are emotionally challenged and have blind mental blocks. Can I be resilient enough to overcome procrastination? You don’t get good by procrastinating . . . ever. Big dreams + poor habits = high probability that you procrastinate.
Find your market. Stay in the moment . . . stay in your game. Realize that I must gain entrepreneurial vocational skills…how? Repetition, do and do and do and do and do x infinity. Focus on being good and efficient rather than great and a hero..
Greatness and “hero” status come as a result of being really really good over a period of time and turning that goodness over and over (efficiency.)
Must be resilient. Emotional Resilience is the key to overcome the feelings of insanity.
Practice practice practice and experience.
You can’t possibly get good by procrastinating . . . so stop it now.

I also call that stupidity.
Let’s look at our finances.
Most people want to be financially wealthy. They want more money so that they can spend more time with their families or so they can travel the world. They want more money so they can have the finer things of life. Do you want to be wealthy…from a financial perspective?
What do many people do today in regards to their financial world? They get up, go to a broke J.O.B. (Just over Broke or Journey of the Broke) and come home, watch T.V., waste time on the internet and go to sleep. They repeat this mundane crazy cycle of life till they do hoping and wishing for more money.
Or they’ll waste time and money on ‘get rich quick schemes’ and then never try again because they experienced something negative or hurtful.
Let’s face it…if you want to change something in your life…change an outcome or a result…you must change something. YOU must change something in your life. And only YOU can change it. [...]

[This is a direct email I sent to my loyal followers...]
Read this…or perish… (this email is designed to help you in your life…sometimes the TRUTH hurts but I’ve learned that’s when we make our biggest strides…”the truth shall set you free.”)
Creators realize that there is no product (especially mine) or program on earth that is going to change them…Destroyers are always looking for some “product” or some “program” or some” guru” to change them…
Only YOU can change YOU…
Yes there are very powerful programs out there that can accelerate the process…But ultimately YOU have to decide, commit and then stick with it…
You have to DECIDE…choose to make a conscious change and shift in your thinking and in your behavior…
Until you get that…you’ll spend all your money buying program, book, and course after course because you’re missing the one key ingredient that get’s you into action and that helps YOU change…
This post is NOT for weak people so read with caution … Rated E for everyone

I was in the locker room at the gym after an intense workout and playing on the TV was more coverage about Tiger Woods and his car wreck and the scandals of cheating etc.
Someone next to me probably trying to strike up a conversation said this to me “I would hate to be famous.” I asked him why and he said “So I wouldn’t have all that stuff happen to me.”
WHAT DRUGS IS THIS GUY TAKING?
Here is someone watching Tiger Woods and all the media on him and he thinks it would suck to be famous.
Hmmm…Maybe this guy in the gym (let’s call him Bob for now), Bob, doesn’t realize how much good someone ‘famous’ can do. Maybe Bob doesn’t realize that ‘famous people’ do a lot of good.
Money is a RESULT! Result of what? It is a result of providing valuable services and products to people who want them. Money is the result of solving people’s problems and getting paid to do it. Fame is also a result of similar things. So being famous means you have either done a lot of bad, but usually it means you have done a tremendous amount of good in the world. [...]
