Have you ever been so inspired, motivated, and exciting about a change you want to make in your life? 

Perhaps you wanted to...

....Start an online business

....Lose those last 10 pounds...or, the first 20

...Be more loving to your spouse and children

...Build a digital product

...Break into a new industry

...Learn a new skill

But...after just a few short days, you find yourself uninspired, unmotivated, and discouraged by your lack of progress?

Why does this happen?

Why does it seem so hard to accomplish the goals, results, and outcomes that we know we are capable of achieving? 

Let's think about the two most common ways people go about making a change:

#1 - Relying on Motivation (Emotion)

Motivation is great but it is like the wind, it's hard to know where it comes from and it leaves at completely unpredictable times.

Long-term change cannot rely on motivation alone. 

If motivation isn't the answer, what is?

#2 - Relying on "digging deep" (Will)

Ah, discipline. 

The problem with discipline alone is that it relies on the power of the will. 

The will is a muscle and can get tired. And like all muscles...when it gets tired, it gets weak. 

We need a 3rd Option

We need an option whose foundation is based on behavioral psychology but also one that has been battle tested through experience of some of the most successful people on the planet. 

To get the long-term change we want, we have to go deeper than emotion and will, we have to go to the mind. 

The mind is the root, and that's where we must go to get long-term change. 

Everything that we have, are, and can be starts with our mind--it starts with the inward. The outward is an expression of this inward reality. 

If the inward condition is weak, no matter how much outward "scaffolding" we put up, we are determined to fail. 

The inward is so important. 

But the inward without the outward is abstract. I don't deal with abstracts very well. I like the concrete, the tangible. 

That's why our steps are closely divided into these two categories. 

We start with the inward:

Step 1 - Ideas

Step 2 - Communication

Step 3 - Beliefs (or, Mindset)

And then move to the outward:

Step 4 - Habits

Step 5 - Action

Who is the target audience?
  • People you know who they want to be...but are having trouble getting there
  • Those who will settle for nothing less than their BEST SELF
  • People who are fed up with their past and want to RAISE their standards
  • People who are HUNGRY FOR MORE
  • People who want to accomplish so much...but are struggling
