…and still going strong! I’ll never name names on anything I do, but someone messaged me and asked “how do you find the time to read, and meditate, and get all 10 things done every day? Honestly, it’s nothing new for a good part of my Daily 10. One of the most valuable lessons I learned was to front-end loss the start of my day with working on myself. Pick up Hal Elrod’s book, “The Miracle Morning”, it will teach you and motivate you to develop your own morning routine. One of my current mentors, Mike Colburn, has said over and over, “if you can control your first hour, you can control the entire day.” Creating the right habits and routines is really what it’s all about. Robert Collier taught many years ago….
First I want to say that I did still manage to hit all my “Daily 10” so I’m not really off track yet. Today did not go as planned at all though. Not to go into great detail, but stomach issues cut my workout time short this morning, so I made up my missed weight training with some cardio. I did get my mediation, reading, visualizations and everything else done before I headed out, so half my Daily 10 was done before leaving the house. I had a no-show appointment but used that time to call a carrier about a claim issue. I did get to spend time with my family mid-day as well as help someone chose a Medicare policy. But because I didn’t lift this morning, I don’t get my usual caffeine jolt from my pre-workout drink, so I came home this evening with an absolutely busting headache. A couple Excedrin and what was meant to be closing my eyes until it kicked in was a 2 hour nap, so I missed the extra prospecting time I had set aside for the day.
This is a complete contradiction to yesterday’s post, and I’ve got to say I’m a little embarrassed to literally slip the day after committing to changing my mindset to “going to failure”. I guess I’m a way I did go to failure today, just a lot sooner than I had meant to. But even the good players get sacked, miss shots, or turnover the ball. It’s always what happens the next play that separate the good from the great though, right?
I did however meet the “minimum” commitments for the day so I have to focus on the positive. I did spend time with my family. I did workout. I did work on myself. I did work on my business. And for all of that, I am grateful. Now to get some rest because tomorrow is a new day and I‘ve got to earn my days off down the road!

If you follow my social media posts, I put up a picture this morning of me sitting in my gym all sweaty talking about, what if we used the “going to failure” mentality in all aspects of our lives? In today’s video I talk about how I am going to start applying this mentality to my business as well as to other aspects of my live. It’s all about giving it all you’ve got and pushing until you can’t push any more. Getting that disciplined mindset to take the hard road knowing that the prize at the end won’t be found with any shortcuts. There is no elevator to success- we have to “Take the Stairs” as one of my favorite authors, Rory Vaden, puts it.
As an update, I got a little caught up in the moment with my video and realized I misspoke… I only need to MEET with 10 prospects a week to accomplish my goals. I don’t even have to take 10 applications. Although that would be even better!
I have been thinking a lot for several months now about what it would take to overcome the mental place that I am in and get more back to my old self. Back to my old self in every area, both personal and professional. I have come up with a plan and will make my implementation of this plan very public. Tomorrow starts day 1 of my 1,000 day journey to reclaim my full potential in every area of my life. To reclaim my own personal greatness.
