Hi Team...

Happy Friday...

So, we have been held in captivity now for over six weeks.....

How are you making out?

Are you feeling the heat?

Or, Are you finding ways to thrive?

Early in this quarantine I did some writing about things you can do to manage yourself on a daily basis....

From setting a daily schedule to getting on a workout program to making sure you are not stuffing yourself with starches, carbs, and sugars...

Now that we have been doing this thing for a while, how are you doing?

You see, I find it is always great to check in with yourself...

I have seen some really amazing stories of people on our team taking their game to the next level...

People like Jay Baitler, a retired, yet ever so active 70+ year old that trains 3+ days a week for a trainer online via zoom...

Or, CEOs like Tom O'Regan who has done the same.. working with his trainer 2x per week and engaging in a high level bootcamp online 2 others day.. while at the same time mixing in daily walks and runs through central park... Oh yeah- he has also been running his Company remotely with a focus on GROWTH!

We also have Tim F., a finance legend, who has used this time to not just get in shape, but also to acquire a large international construction company in Europe...

And then, there is Jeff Antinoro, who's Company was one of the first to do layoffs.

Right when this happened, I spoke to Jeff and gave him two words of advice: PLAY OFFENSE... and that is exactly what he did...

He did not bathe in the negative emotions he had, but, rather he channeled it into getting in to the best shape of his life by engaging in daily extended distance running, setting personal bests, and also mixing in online bootcamps...

Arash, a client I work with in Arizona had a few record days two weeks ago, doing over 30k in business during the first two days of the week....

Then there is Corey Dissin, a long time client who is setting benchmark results in his new business he started just over a year ago. He is developing new business each day and setting new income records for himself....

Real people, just like you doing big things....

I tell you this because you may only be hearing one side of the story...

The story of how bad things are...

How EVERYBODY is struggling....

And there are many who are struggling... I get it...

But, there is always a way to create victories during time of struggle...

Be creative.

Challenge your own thought and belief system.

Elevate your thinking....

You see, what often happens to people is they lower their thinking to the level of the masses...

Panic = Fear = "I can not be successful. Nobody can be right now" = FALSE.

Bad Economy= "Nobody is Spending Right Now" = FALSE.

Virus = Contraction = "Nobody is Growing or Can Start a Business Now"

= FALSE.

I do not want you thinking like this.

In fact, I command you not to.

STOP thinking like everybody else.

Think bigger.

Lift your levels of thought. 

Lift your thought levels until you get to the point that you can see opportunity only and are only focused on what you are going to build, grow, create, develop, and profit from.

Lift your thought levels to where you no longer participate in the conversations of fear, scarcity, lack, hesitation, negative, and worst case scenarios.

RISE ABOVE THE NOISE.

I command you to do that.

You can do it.

I know that when you do this... everything will change for you no matter what everybody else says...

YOU ARE NOT EVERYBODY ELSE.

Rise above.

Let's GO!

Your Coach,
