Hi Team....

This week rounds out a very exciting week for me....

Let me tell you why....

Back in 2008, from my office at Yankee Stadium, I started thinking about what it would be like to have a farm...

A large parcel of property....

Away from the daily grind....

A place that would be calm, serene, and a place to think, write, and really get back to the simple things in life....

Now.. that was a dream.....

I believe because so much of my life is "on-the-go".. always going here, always traveling there... speaking, coaching, traveling that innately I knew that I needed to include stillness in my life in order to really work in an optimized/ balanced state.....

When you are on the go all the time... it is very exciting... but, can be draining too. 

So, many of us "runners" seek times of total solitude, tranquility, and off the grid time in between bouts of exertion.....

I tell you this because what started as a dream... as a vision in 2008, became a reality this week...

My wife and I purchased a farm in upstate NY- a dream come true.

It is a 130 acre working farm- that will produce grass-fed beef and other grass-fed- clean meats. 

I share this with you because:

#1: When we start selling meat I want you to be the first to experience it... 

#2: The Power of Vision is very powerful and very real....

But, many make a big mistake when it comes to vision....

Ready for it?


And, I share today's lesson because my vision took 12years....

But Coach- I want it NOW!

That is the problem.....

My father always told me and still tells me: Son, delayed gratification is the key to life...

Man is that true.

When we delay the gratification and our immediate desires...we have to earn our fruits...

The way VISION-EERING works is you simply identify what you want... put it out there... continue to keep the image in front of you each day and week without it causing you pain or stress.. and develop a knowingness that over time IT will be yours.

That is how it works.

We received an amazing opportunity from the Witkowski Family who sold us the farm.. and we committed to carrying along their vision....

I am again writing this to let you know that all is possible when you believe it is.

  • All is possible when you know what you want and why you want it...
  • All is possible when you do not listen to the critics and you go about your life the way it is designed to be gone about....

What is your vision?

What are you looking to build in your life?

When I coach folks around the world, this is where we start.

What are you looking to build?

Then- we go and do it.

Some are fast builders- others are slow.

Either way, they are building.

I will tell you this when it comes to vision....

Your vision must be aligned to who you are and who you want to become....

That is they key...

Living a connected life.

You can do it.

I know you can.

And for those wondering the name of the farm...

It is called: FREEDOM FARMS...


It is a place to go to feel free!

I hope to host you at some point!

Let's GO!

Your Coach,

Hi Coach,
Here is to your dream becoming a reality.
Nothing energizes me more than:
• Watching someone who works as smart / hard as you,
• Delivers as much value,
• Finds power in stillness &
• Is willing to visualize what they want, put the effort in, and take the risks to get what they are striving for.
“Whatever Your Mind Can Conceive and Believe, It Can Achieve.”
– Napoleon Hill.

That is the Champion way!!!

I’m so pleased for you, Lauren & Rocco!
The only thing better than reaching a vision, is reaching a vision with a friend and some you cherish as much as you two and of course your dog Rocco.

My business partner and I always say:

• When you work with someone you like it cuts the effort in half, double the fun and triples the value.

Thank you for sharing.
