Listen to this week’s podcast to learn how Click Funnels (and the upcoming Funnel Hacking Live) actually saved me from brain surgery.

My neurologist was telling me it was time to give in and have the brain surgery  … but my heart was telling me a different story. To go to the event, I had to say NO to brain surgery - and to do that, I had to actually get better.

Let's start this week's encouraging podcast with some discouraging facts from our friends at the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

  • 22% of business startups fail in the first year
  • 50% of new businesses fail within the first five years
  • 97% of online businesses fail within the first five years

Did you catch that last one? Ouch!

I've been doing business online for nearly two decades. Is it just luck that I've beaten the nearly insurmountable odds? I don't think so.

This week, I want to share 7 Power Beliefs for business owners that I believe are your ticket to the 3% club of successful, sustainable businesses.

  • [00:00] Intro
  • [03:57] There is a payback for doubling down on small habits that change your future
  • [05:23] Scale your business by doing the unscalable (while you can)
  • [06:56] It is important to invest in assets, attention, and people
  • [09:58] There is less competition and more opportunity than ever before
  • [12:41] There is free land right now and you should grab as much of it as you can
  • [15:15] If you're creating and building during a recession, you're 2-5 years ahead of everybody else
  • [15:42] Start now, with whatever you have

When I say, "change your words, change your world", it isn't just for the sake of marketing - it's a fact.

This week's episode is about the importance of language. From the way we express ourselves in person and online, to our most private internal dialogue, the words we choose are critical. They truly shape our view of reality.

Quick note: Much of this content was inspired by an interview with Robin Arzón I heard on Rich Roll's podcast (linked below). I highly recommend you add it to your must-listen-to list.

  • [00:00] Intro - Linguistic Alchemy / Dirt into wealth
  • [02:48] See the world through a different set of eyes
  • [03:11] Letting the world see my reality
  • [05:02] If we can't trust each other...
  • [05:28] What stops us from telling the truth?
  • [06:13] Success is not hard - Here's the formula
  • [07:25] My policy: Radical Honesty
  • [07:54] Plateaus are launchpads (things I learned from Robin Arzon)
  • [09:48] Turn your doubts into defiance
  • [10:36] Turn your fear into fury
  • [12:11] Own your voice - be fully you
