On the 1st Day of Christmas The PitStop gave to me…

The Secret of My Future!

What is the secret of your future?

The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine!
Successful people do daily what unsuccessful people do occasionally.
Good habits are the key to all success.

If you want to have a more successful 2016 year, it’s important that you identify your bad habits and eliminate as many of those as you can and also to identify what new (good) habits you want to establish and to apply those to your life.

In general, you can only make a change to one or two habits at a time and be successful at it.

One of the best habits I found is going to bed early and getting up early. How you start your day and end your day makes a big difference.

I heard it said that each hour of sleep before midnight is equivalent to about three hours of sleep after midnight. While I don’t know that for sure, I do know from coaching people that when they go to bed earlier that they wake up earlier with more energy, more clarity, more focus, more enthusiasm, almost across the board.

I believe that as part of God’s creation that we’re designed to be in sync with creation. It used to be 100 years ago that people would go to bed shortly after sunset. People would come inside. They’d have a dinner together, maybe read or talk to one another, and then they would go to bed early so that they could get up before the crack of dawn and maximize the use of the actual daylight. But now with electricity, we’ve gotten into all these funky sleep patterns and the times that we go to bed, and I don’t believe that’s healthy for us.

What do you do in the last half an hour or an hour before you go to bed?
What time do you get up in the morning and how do you start your day?

For me, I like to get up around 5 o’clock in the morning, and I have built-in God alarm clock in our home. We call it Maui, our chocolate lab, and she seems to always get me up at the right time, and I love how she wakes me up. It’s a lot better than a noisy alarm going off.

After I feed her and let her outside, then I take communion and I go to my sacred place for my sacred time and spend some time communing with God. Then ideally I like to exercise just to start my day doing something to take care of my body. Then, it’s great if I can eat breakfast or walk the dog. Once again, how you start your day has a big impact on how you finish the day.

It’s also valuable to write down your goals for the day because each six minutes of planning saves about an hour of implementation, so just taking that few minutes in the morning to plan out your day or a few minutes at night time to plan out your subsequent day will make a big difference.

Remember, the secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.

Merry Christmas!

Biography 

Born in Naples Italy and raised in the mountains of Lake Tahoe California I spent most of my days exploring the great outdoors and participating in all the varied winter & summer activities. I was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug early on and it has affected much of my life’s path. My life’s journey with all its pains, sorrows and joys opened my eyes to personal development and the importance of spiritual growth and birthed a vision to change the world by helping others discover their purpose, become free from that which enchains them from seeing their dream come to pass, and learning the skills to make their dream a reality.  That journey included working with and traveling with Jim Rohn, launching a Satellite TV Company in personal improvement and more than 20+ ventures. After a complete life crash, my path veered to eventually lead me to where I am today. It is now a tremendous honor to share that journey with you in hopes you can avoid the suffering & prosper sooner.

Unleash the Masterpiece

Personal stress, navigating work-life balance, learning to resolve conflicts, giving healthy and helpful leadership at home and at work, and really making a difference in people’s lives are tough things to do, especially when all the needs are there all the time.

Quite frankly, most of us struggle. That’s okay. It’s part of the wonder and majesty of life—living with and overcoming the challenges. The good news is that there are skills we can master that can turn our obstacles into opportunities. Ron Jenson is a master at helping you do that.

Ron loves the idea of helping someone live a vital, healthy, dynamic, full, and abundant meaningful life, both professionally and personally. Those two are obviously very closely integrated. Most of the people that Ron coaches are successful professionally, but what they need help with is help on the personal side. We all need help with work-life balance and it’s constantly adjusting.

Authentic Success is not just… Power, Prosperity, Position, Pretige, and Pleasure.

At the end of your life, how will you know you have succeeded?
How will you measure it? What will your metrics be?

  • What kind of relationship did you have with your spouse?
  • Did you live a vital life mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually?
  • Did you have a positive impact on the lives of others?
  • Did you have a joyous life, a meaningful life?
  • Did you pass on value into other people’s lives?

Seven Content Strategies!

Today’s world is filled with uncertainty as people are afraid of losing their jobs or worse yet are among the tens of millions who have given up searching for a job.

More than ever, people are realizing that the best alternative they have is to start a business.

For those who have taken that leap they are finding it harder than ever to find an audience and build momentum so that they can turn their dreams into realities.

Every business owner learns at some point really quick they have to market and sell if they are going to make it.

Perhaps you are new business or you started your business within the last few years and you realize that marketing isn’t as easy as you thought.

Why?

The number reason people reason people leave your website immediately or don’t follow your social media (let alone engage with you) is because of a lack of a message that appeals to them.

Your message is your brand and your brand is your message!

Yet, most businesses ignore their “message” and brand and focus on developing online digital strategies that attempt to do nothing more than sell or talk about themselves because many business owners don’t understand messaging and how the internet works for business.

Long gone are the days of just posting and they will come.

Don Purdum helps businesses learn what business they are “really” in by helping them develop their message and brand through a unique system that I have learned over the last 10 years of failing and succeeding in seven businesses.

On the 9th Day of Christmas My True Love gave to me…

Living in His Presence!

Many people in the world are hurting because they have bought into a way of life that does not produce lasting peace, joy, and fulfillment. Most of those in religious circles are not setting people free to truly understand the real joy of what it means to walk with GOD. It is possible to experience such love, peace and, joy that you want nothing else in life but GOD.

In this message, Pastor Lu shares some beautiful insights that will revive your heart and passion for the spiritual part of your life and put a new fresh hunger in you for wanting to run to and have GOD instead of running away from HIM. You will truly be blessed by this message. For more information go to A Dwelling Place.

Life lessons (Joseph’s notes)

  • Run after God!
  • God’s desire is always to bring us back to Him. (Isaiah 30:15)
  • It’s one thing to have a heart for God and another thing to know God’s heart.
  • We are the temple.
  • Everything God does He does to bring us back to Him so we can learn to live in His presence.
  • When sin is in our lives, we run from God.
  • God’s judgment is for redemptive purposes.
  • If you can’t live your everyday life with Biblical standards, how are you going to live in Heaven?
  • There is no natural light in the Holy of holies.
  • God is not a religion. He is a person.
  • The presence of God is the central fact of Christianity.

Isaiah 30:15 – For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”

Action steps

Take an inventory before the year really get’s under way and spend time before the LORD. Ask the LORD what you did wrong and ask for His forgiveness. Then determine in your heart to correct those things and Tell Him, “I will love You more, I will obey you more, I will follow You more, no matter what anyone else says.”

  • How much of God do you want? It’s up to each person. The more of God you want, the less of you, you will have.
  • Let yourself die and your ways die!
  • If you have all of God, you have everything.

The Biggest Mistake Most Entrepreneurs & Business Owners Make

“The Way we see the problem IS the problem” ~ Stephen Covey

We can't solve problems by using the same

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to make it and everything they touch turns to gold and others seems to fail or barely make it financially in pursuing their dreams?

I know I have.

But something magical happened more that 20 years ago that changed everything for me.

Let me explain this way…

Picture this for a moment.

Imagine what it would be like to be an Investor who wanted to purchase a football team with the hopes of making it into the Super Bowl.

What do you think would be the most important thing to invest in besides the players themselves?Coaching_002

Equipment?

Uniforms?

Medics?

Athletic Trainers?

Sports Doctors?

Would any of those people help you to win the Super Bowl?

My guess is that you would say no it would be The Coach!

Correct? Of course you would!

One of the most costly mistakes I made at the beginning of my entrepreneurial endeavors that significantly delayed my own success and The Biggest Mistake Most Entrepreneurs & Business Owners Make is  going about trying to do things without help.

I was creating so many problems for myself.

It wasn’t until I read the quote above by Albert Einstein that things began to click for me.

And it is the same mistake I see business owners, entrepreneurs, and those wanting to be more successful in life and business make all the time. It’s the thinking that says “I can reach my goals on my own.”

We seem to take great pride in the fact that we are a DIY nation.

But the truth of the matter, if we will look honestly, is that there is absolutely nothing we have achieved without the help of someone else.

Be it learning to walk. It was our parents who encouraged us and helped us back up when we fell down.

Or when we began going to school our teachers and our parents helped us when we did not understand or got frustrated and wanted to throw in the towel.

No matter what it has been the help of people who came along and helped us up, gave us insight, taught us what we needed to learn, encouraged us.

No One is an IslandUnto Themselves

The phrase “No man is an Island unto Himself” rings truer today than ever before as countless people are entering the business world looking to start businesses and change their financial situations. But they are making costly mistakes by not bringing on the expert guidance they need from a seasoned veteran in the industry.

Like myself I certainly did not want to fail, but as I shared with the Stephen Covey quote above “The Way we see the problem IS the problem” I could not see what I was doing wrong because my own thinking of how I saw the problem.

And what I thought I needed to do to get out of the problem was the same kind of thinking I was using to get into the problem in the first place.

It was not until someone came along with their brochure in the mail did the light finally click on.

She was my first coach.

I’ll never forget her.

She was both brilliant and beautiful.

Truthfully it was her physical beauty that got my attention. But it was the wisdom and insight that she had and how she dealt with me that captivated me to work with her long term.

One of the valuable skills I learned was that I needed to have someone else’s perspective on the situation and someone to hold me accountable to the results I wanted.

But it had to be done in a compassionate loving way that would encourage me.

The first test came when she shared how much I had to invest to work with her.

Deep down you can probably relate…at the time I really did not have the money. I was also scared and wondered what if I invest the money and it does not pay off?

We all do this right?

It’s like a primordial fear or something.

Admit it you do it too right?

Why is it that we are trained to not trust people?

From the time we are born our parents want to protect us from the damage and hurt, they went through. And sometimes they were burned. But the way they share it seems to create this image in our mind to run away.

So here I was faced with a beautiful stranger.

Would I run or would I take the leap and invest?

But she said another thing.

She basically helped me to see that to get to the next level of life I wanted, I had to elevate my thinking. I had to actually Think Differently than I was at my current level. To do that I would need help.

So I took a deep breath and said “Okay”

That was the next big step in my own personal growth.

I had invested in Tony Robbins seminars, began reading personal improvement books but never had I taken a step like this one. But it was the step that took me out of my comfort zone. Much like the still animation movie “A Way of Being” I was afraid to let go of my comfort zone.

 

But this single act expanded my life circle and helped me to go onto making my own successful coaching business. It was the smack on the head when they say “Wow I could have had a V8”

That’s when it hit me. “Wow, I could get farther, faster and higher with the help of a coach. I thought “Why didn’t I see this sooner?”

Since then I had one of the start-up founders of Direct TV be my coach for a period of time, Omar Periu became both a coach and a friend. Larry Thompson, the legendary motivator and secondary heartbeat of Herbalife helped me, and of course, as many know, my mentor Jim Rohn helped guide my thinking for years before he passed away.

Each one of them, including my parents, all contributed to my success and those who I had to pay hard earned dollars for propelled me even further because I did not want the investment to go to waste.

Over the years, I learned the value both personally and in coaching others. I’ve watched my own income go up as a result, my business grow and the ROI of my clients businesses grow to far exceed the investments we had made.

But are you still not convinced?

Well, check this out…

A study by The International Journal of Coaching in Organizations found over an 18-month study that concluded in 2007 stated:

Coaching_Study

From my own experience, both personally and those I have had the honor and privilege to advise coaching is by far the best investment you can make in yourself and shorten the path of success much faster.

And as you can see from the study… it can help you earn more income from taking that step of faith.

So imagine if you will that you want to become an Olympian skater, or a professional dancer, or world class tennis player.

Hiring a coach makes sense doesn’t it?

Of course it does.

Take Away: What I Learned

Well, this is my advice to you.

1) Your life is way more important that going to the Olympics and winning Wimbledon. So take a step of faith and get a coach to help shorten your learning curve.

It can be for growing spiritually, having a better marriage or learning how to get your business on the internet correctly using internet marketing, and even improving your overall health and financial situation.

Get an advisor a coach that you can work with well.

2) Another key my mentors and coaches taught me over the years when it came down to money. I used to think. “Gosh I can’t afford that,” and as Larry Thompson said one day “Your Right” It took me a minute to compute but eventually I saw it. Whatever I told myself was the truth I would manifest.

So they eventually taught me to ask my brain. “How can I afford this?” That opened up my mind to new possibilities. It caused me to think. “How can I do this?”

Never ever let money be your god. It makes a horrible god and if you are saying well I don’t have the money, you are then allowing money to be the controlling factor or your god.

3) This brings me to a major key here that I must hit home is from another point my mentors and coaches taught me.

“The income you make is in direct proportion to the number of people you are helping and the value you bring to them.”

You are either providing a modest value helping a lot of people for a little bit, or you’re providing a huge value for a select few people that returns huge dividends.

Frank Kern, for example, earns $14,000 for a three days workshop per person from a few people, and recently $700,000+ from one client.

While others earn say $60,000 – $100,000 a year flying people all over the world in metal airplane tubes.

So if you want to earn more money you must increase your value and help more people, and the best way to do that is through the right kind of coaching.

Now here is where I encourage you to take a step of faith and try coaching for yourself.

There are many great coaches out there. And finding the right one is going to be key.

If you don’t have one then feel free to fill out my questionnaire and let’s see if we would be a good fit for one another. You’ll gain some valuable insights about yourself as well as begin to see the thinking that may be keeping you in the rut you are currently at.
Just go to http://bit.ly/AStepOfFaith

If you already have a coach it’s okay to have more than one. NFL football players have Financial Coaches, Health Coaches, and their primary Players coach.

If you have a coach take the questionnaire and let’s break bread together anyway as you will gain some tremendous insights. http://bit.ly/AStepOfFaith

The Biggest Mistake Most Entrepreneurs & Business Owners Make

Biggest Mistakes Most Entrepreneurs Make

What Every Entrepreneur Ought to Know About Nutrition & How it Effects Business (Part 1)

What Every Entrepreneur Ought to Know About Nutrition & How it Effects Business (Part 1)


The Problem.

Business is tough on the body, there is no doubt about it. From long stressful hours working hard wearing multiple hats, to sleepless nights, meals on the go or not at all.

Then there are the emotions on overdrive, the stress & worry when products are not launched when they should be to not making the money you thought.

Oh yes and let’s not forget those multiple cups of java to keep you pumped and alert. They too stress the body and deplete it of vital nutrients.

But staying at this pace for too long will begin rapidly depleting major micro-nutrients.


The Question

So the question is…what is one to do to stay in top peak condition? Well, we certainly don’t have the time to train for a marathon if we are looking to build an empire right?


My experience:

How do I know?

Well for the last 25 years much of my entrepreneurial business experience was in the health and fitness industry. My passion was to help individuals realize their full physical and life potential. I had some great mentors in my life that really trained me well. However; I over-stepped my limits.

In 2005, I began burning the candle at both ends as you may have discovered in my Post Dark Night Of Love. I was trying to build 5 companies at the same time, sleeping maybe 3 hours a day or more like 48-hour sprints, skipped meals, and almost no down time.

The net result.

A near-fatal meltdown.


The Symptoms:

You’ll first begin to notice an increase in stress followed by unclear thinking which causes you to make poor decisions which leads to poor results and lower income.

This cycle then repeats itself with more stress, even more unclear thinking and on and on in a downward spiral until you have a mini or complete background

The old adage declares “If you don’t feel well you simply won’t do well.”

But many entrepreneurs make a fatal mistake that costs them dearly. Many use methods that were popularized for body builders and media moguls to sell magazines and fitness memberships to gyms.

And of course, nutrition franchises like GNC and others helped feed the craze by selling so-called nutrition to in order to also capitalize on the gold mine. Their nutrition is laced with inorganic or synthetic materials. And it’s a one size fits all mentality.

The truth is however that people are unique and so should their nutrition and fitness routines be. If you take a 1 size fits all approach it really serves no one but the corporate giants.


The solution.

So what is the solution?

Well, it is two-fold.

First, one begins with nutrition that can be both customized for the individual and nutrition that can be absorbed by their body. For absorption to occur you need an all natural organic source, not the synthetic types that the franchise world markets.

Now because everyone’s body is different, such as medical conditions, medications, lifestyle, geography, age, height, and weight etc. That means that someone who lives in sunny Florida requires less vitamin D than say someone who lives in Snowy Montana. But if you go the nutrition store you get the same vitamin D that is sold in every other franchise.

After 25 years in the fitness industry and 15 years in search if the perfect solution, I was finally led to the exact thing I was looking for. An all natural, organic, GMO Free, Casein free, dairy and MSG free, customized nutrition program that offers individuals the exact nutrition their body needs.

How?

By using a FREE 25 question HIPPA compliant assessment questionnaire that takes into consideration more than 7 different parameters. Things like medication, location, lifestyle, exercise, eating habits, current health conditions, age, height, weight and more.

And what it produces, with its algorithm that includes 7,000 of the most advanced research periodicals  is the exact quantities and amounts for your body in both the morning and evening.

You can see it here for yourself http://tvg.idlife.com/takeassessment

It will send you a complete, customized nutrition for both morning and evening.

They have a comprehensive selection of health products from Protein powders and appetite control to hydration and energy products. Everything is all natural and organic, sweetened naturally with Stevia.

 

Recommendation:
My recommendation is to  give it a go for 90 days. It is priced very reasonably. To go out and locate the exact quantities and amounts would cost you a significant amount and your first born.

For those interested in earning additional income they have a fantastic compensation program.

Good nutrition is going to be key in increasing mental clarity, reducing stress and improving mental and physical performance. To neglect it, is certain and eventual suicide. If you care about your vision, your family,and the future, then you’ll want to make sure your nutritional health is part of your routine as well as your physical health which we’ll discuss in Part 2, What Every Entrepreneur Ought to Know About Working Out That Shatters the Myths Sold to Them From the Media.

So stay tuned for Part 2 when we share an amazing 7 min workout that leaves you feeling like you exercised for 4 hours.

Upward & Onward

How To Have Your Best Year EVER!

If you want to learn How To Have Your Best Year Ever, then these tips by Omar Periu will equip you with the keys to make this year better than last GUARANTEED!

Change
Everyone wants more out of life, but the truth is few want to leave their comfort zone long enough to effect changes in their lives. I believe this formula for goals, directions and choices is the most fun and less stressful way to get the changes you want in your life. If you just change your wants and aspirations and make good positive choices you will change, everything around you changes. But the choice to do more with yourself always comes first. Take a look at your sales TARGET: Today’s choices are going to effect tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. Are those choices going to be positive, negative or stay about the same? To find out, look back at the goals and choices you made yesterday, last week, last month, and last year.

What did you do that had a positive impact on today?  
What did you do that had a positive impact on today? What did you do last year that is going to add up big this year? How about last month for next month? You get the idea. If you don’t like what you see, it may be time for some new choices and direction. If you don’t know what you want, you might write down a goal to find some answers to that question over the next 30 days. If you really want the answers they will come. Just put your antenna up, listen, watch and feel.

You create what you want in your subconscious mind… 
As I said before, if you have ever gotten anything you wanted or dreamed about before, how did you get it? Will it work for other things, bigger things? The answer is still Yes. You created what you wanted in your subconscious mind, made the right choices and brought it into reality. I can’t tell you too many times, you already know how to do this. You now need to move it to a higher level. As always, though, it’s your choice.

Short of a natural catastrophe or a supernatural phenomenon, there is very little that can keep you from achieving at least small conscious success decisions that will eventually lead to bigger and better achievements. Even if big goals seem beyond your reach today, a few months from now, after you’ve applied these simple strategies, you may laugh at their simplicity.

The moment of truth
There is one thing that frequently holds us back, one small area that can make or break us, the six inches between our own ears. No matter how common the old adage is that states, “We’re our own worst enemy,” the truth is, we are.

At the moment of truth, we can choose to take the + road or the – road. The more you choose the positives, the quicker and easier the process becomes. The more we let ourselves debate the value of each choice, the more we lose. If we instead simply focus on the goal at each moment of truth, the choice becomes painfully obvious. This only works if you know where you are going. With no clear destination, the choice won’t seem to matter.

Our minds are incredible machines
Our minds are tuned to hear our own voices above any others. Not only do our subconscious minds accept our verbal input above any other entering data, they without question believe what we believe, and can be ready to act at the drop of a hat. When we reach that moment of choice, if our minds have been exercised to make the right decision, if they have been trained to choose the positive conscious success decision, if they have built a history of successful wins, they will follow their own example. Our minds are incredible machines that will take us where we want to go. All they need are predetermined destinations, a map of goals and estimated arrival times to enable us to make positive conscious success decisions, thus taking us closer to accomplishing our goals one step at a time.

“Success is in the moment, make every moment count!” -Omar Periu

This builds histories of past successes, which makes the whole achievement process stronger and even more believable to you as you go along. Remember champions, if you change, everything will change for you.

I wish you great success!

Omar
