Make Millions Buying Gold In Ghana

Imagine this. You wake up in the morning, grab your steaming hot cup of coffee, switch on your laptop and login to your email account and find a very interesting email sitting in your inbox.

An email from a Nigerian dude who wants to give you an offer you can’t refuse.
This Nigerian dude tells you that he has inherited 30 million pounds and wants to give you 30% of that money if you would help him transfer the money outside his country.

He closes out the email by asking you to send all your personal details for further discussion.

Now what would be your reaction when you get such an email?

Laughter?

Snigger?

Maybe a mild chuckle?

And then DELETE.

And maybe while deleting the email, you may wonder if there are actually some knuckleheads out there who would fall for this crap.

Now what if I told you I know a guy who fell for a similar deal.

Hook, line and sinker.

In fact, his case is even WORSE.

Not only was he interested in such a deal but he was SO CONFIDENT about making a fortune that he flew DIRECTLY to Africa to close out the deal.

Haha.

What would you call that guy?

Crazy?

World’s dumbest fool?

Well…. you can and you should because that guy was none other than ME.

Yeah…. its one of the episodes of my life that I wish had NEVER happened.

I never shared this experience for a simple reason.

I DIDN’T WANT TO LOOK DUMB.

Silly as it may be, I just didn’t want to get laughed at.

The things that I did back in those days were so frigging damn crazy that I never dared to reveal much about them EVER.

But today I thought….SCREW ALL THAT.

That experience of mine may make me look like a complete idiot but I need to share it with my tribe because there are a LOT of insights and lessons to be gleaned from it.

Lessons that helped me become the person that I am known as today.

So here goes the story.

Several years back, when I was hanging out in Mayfair, I met a few interesting guys who became my friends.

They ended up introducing me to some people who were so generous like the Nigerian dude that they had an offer for me that I could not refuse.

So what was the offer?

An opportunity to make £90,000 PER DAY.

Haha.

Yep, they showed me a very simple STEP BY STEP, idiot proof plan to make £90,000 per day.

Here was the plan:

They told me that there were many untapped gold mines in Ghana (a country in Africa) that many people in the world don’t know about.

They told me that there was an incredible amount of wealth there waiting to be EXTRACTED by those who have the WILL to do so.

Then, they said they could SELL me one of the gold mines which I could then use to extract gold and make upto £90,000 per day.

How nice of them.

The price of a gold mine was a one time only NEVER BEFORE SEEN price of just $200,000.

LOL.

Think about the ROI.

$200,000 one time payment and some more money spent on extraction gives me £90,000 per day in revenues.

This has got to be the WORLD’S GREATEST BUSINESS MODEL.

But you know what…I may have had issues but I wasn’t THAT DUMB to fall for this…

the first time. 😉

When I heard about this offer, I was like…

Cut the crap guys. Why would you sell me a gold mine when you yourself could extract gold and keep that money?

For which those guys replied that:

  1. They weren’t owners of the gold mines but merely guys selling it for others for a commission.
  1. It takes bit of money and organization skills to extract the gold and make profits from it and it’s a very lucrative offer for the right person.
  1. And most importantly, the ACTUAL owners of the gold mines didn’t want to invest money and take the hassles of extracting gold and making profits. $200,000 was a LOT of money in Ghana and the owners were looking for a way to make BIG MONEY at once and walk off rather than deal with many things.

So basically these were the 3 reasons given to me as to why they were offering me this deal.

They even told me that I could come to Ghana with them to ACTUALLY see the gold mines before buying it.

Hey…they even gave me a RISK FREE TRIAL OFFER.

What more do you need?

I was hooked.

You see….at that time, I was a budding internet marketing who just had made around 6 figures in his business.

So making £90,000 per day seemed like a mind blowing number.

This did seem like a GREAT deal to me.

Then I thought what my family would say if I told these guys YES.

I knew they would say I am crazy and I was about to get scammed and they would LAUGH at me.

But then I also thought…..

These were the SAME PEOPLE who laughed at me 1 year back telling me online marketing was a scam. They said I would end up achieving nothing in the online world but HERE I AM….making 6 figures and on track to hit million dollars.

So you know what I did.

I said SCREW THEM.

SCREW MY FAMILY.

I love them but they are idiots.

I am GONNA make £90,000 per day with my gold mines in Ghana.

And I said an EMPHATIC YES to the generous guys who gave me this offer with a risk free trial.

You know the famous dialogue by Robert Downey Junior in the movie Tropic Thunder:

Yeah…I did that.

Not my proudest moment.

At that time, I was too drunk with success.

I had read a BIT TOO MUCH of motivational books and heard TOO MANY motivational speeches for my own good which made me take EVERYTHING OUT OF CONTEXT.

I was in my own dream land.

Then, I told myself:

“Success comes to those who are willing to do things that others WILL NOT do”

So YEAAHHHHHHHH baby…Ghana here I come.

LOL.

So I went and told my family that I am gonna be flying to Ghana soon and buy a gold mine and SHOW THE WORLD what a badass I am going to be.

My family members told me I was crazy.

I laughed at them and told them they reacted the same way a year back when I told them about my online business but look what happened in the end.

For that, they replied

“Shaqir, that’s different and this is different. How can you be so crazy to believe that people would sell you gold mines in Ghana?”

I smiled.

Like a wise monk who knew FAR MORE than what simpletons knew.

I told them that life is all about TIMING and I am not going to miss out on a good offer just because its beyond the belief system of some people.

The offer made sense.

I pay Ghana owners $200,000.

They walk away with enough money to live the rest of their life like a KING without having to take part in any of the hassles of extracting gold. Its EASY MONEY for them.

I then hire a team to extract gold and do the work necessary to make £90,000 per day.

It all made sense for me.

So I left for Ghana with those people.

You know something funny happens when you near the MOMENT OF TRUTH.

You know how we guys brag about doing everything but when the moment comes, we start having our doubts.

Well…I started having them.

Make no mistake…I was STILL PUMPED about buying a gold mine but while I was going to Ghana, I started wondering

“In the rare event, this turns out to be a scam, what then?

I would be out of $200,000.Where do I go from there?

I know its not going to be a scam. Its going to really work but God forbid…what if I am wrong?”

This thought kept swirling in my mind as we landed on Ghana.

I was now having second thoughts about all this.

A growing fear in the pit of my stomach.

I couldn’t explain why I suddenly felt like that but I couldn’t ignore that feeling.

We went for a tour of the place and then went in to meet the guy with whom I was supposed to do business with.

Let me tell you – this dude was a CHARACTER.

He was Australian.

65 years old.

Ugly as hell.

And was a paedophile.

He went on and on bragging about his 16 year old girl friend.

The conversation with him made me SO FRIGGING UNCOMFORTABLE that my mind was screaming not to do any business with this guy.

You know I may have been stupid to travel to Ghana at that time.

But I ain’t getting in bed with a guy who looks like he may be a criminal.

My own personal doubts coupled with this paedophile’s nauseating personality made me decide that this JUST wasn’t the deal I want to do.

It Just Wasn’t Worth It

When I spend $200,000 on something I expect everything to be absolutely professional and smooth.

Not like how drug deals are struck with crazy loons.

So I decided to fly back to London, back out of this deal and NEVER EVER EVER return to Ghana again.

And that’s exactly what I did.

Thankfully the guys whom I travelled to Ghana weren’t some murderous thugs.

I am talking about the kind who would force people to pay up the money or die.

Even now when I think about it, I feel ANYTHING could have happened to me.

I could have been killed by that gang for not going ahead with the deal.

Or, I could have been locked up in a room and tortured till I accepted the deal.

I was in a COMPLETELY NEW CONTINENT (let alone country) and if I disappeared, my family would have never found me in a million years.

I’m eternally grateful to God for saving me after I committed a HUGE mistake by going to Ghana.

The whole Ghana experience in the end had SIMPLY CRUSHED me and my ego.

But in return it also taught me so many lessons that helped me become who I am today.

Lessons that transformed my personality.

Lessons that helped my business take quantum leaps.

Ones that helped me bring MASSIVE SUCCESS not only for myself but also my students and clients.

So I am going to give you a quick look at the lessons I learnt:

Lesson 1 – Be HUMBLE

Having confidence in yourself is important.

But having humility is EVEN MORE SO.

I travelled to Ghana because I was sooo drunk with success that I thought I could do anything and I would succeed.

When you start believing your OWN HYPE, that’s when you crash.

Entire empires have crashed due to this.

So do your due diligence, think logically and rationally and have a sane head above your shoulders.

It will hold you in GOOD STEAD always.

I was lucky enough to come back in one piece from Ghana.

Life may not be so kind to me always.

So always be fucking humble and THINK THINK and THINK before you take action.

Lesson 2 – Learn to say NO or else you will be EATEN by vultures

It doesn’t matter how good a person you are.

The world is FILLED with vultures who are preying on you.

Looking to take what you have got.

Looking to CHEAT and SCAM you and leave you in ruins.

The ONLY way to safeguard yourself is by mastering the ART OF SAYING NO.

Just like indecisiveness causes failures…so does NOT saying no.

Every successful person in the world is successful because he knows WHEN to say YES and WHEN to say NO.

If you hang out with the wrong crowd and keep them on a pedestal, you are giving them valuable space in your mind which they can use to convince and brainwash you.

Once a person starts getting brainwashed, it’s a SLIPPERY SLOPE.

I am considered to be one of the smarter guys in this industry and I acted like a DUMBASS because I let people convince and brainwash me.

At that time, I hadn’t learnt the art of saying NO and I almost paid a HUGE price for it.

That episode made me realize the importance of the word NO.

Lesson 3 – CONTEXT is everything

Reading motivational books and listening to inspiring messages is VERY MUCH NEEDED but if you go so deep into that world that you lose track of reality and critical thinking…then YOU ARE SCREWED.

My family laughed when I said I would make it big in the online world.

A year later, I proved them wrong.

My family again laughed when I said I would go to Ghana and buy a gold mine.

4 months later, I escaped from destroying myself because I came to my senses at the right time (due to God’s grace).

If I hadn’t come to my senses, my family would not only be laughing at me (at first) but also crying to see me all ruined.

Its all about CONTEXT.

Never give up on your dream.

But don’t jump into things without rationally thinking it over.

Lesson 4 – Don’t judge anything based on END RESULT. Judge based on the process needed to attain the END RESULT.

I will give you an example.

Most people have very limiting beliefs.

Tell them you can show them how to make $10 per day online. They will believe you.

Tell them you can show them how to make $100 per day. They will believe you.

Tell them you can show them how to make $1000 per day. Quite a few of them will call you a scammer.

Tell them you can show them how to make $10,000 per day. Many of them will call you a scammer.

Tell them you can show them how to make $100,000 per day. Almost all of them will think its a scam.

You see what’s going on?

People decide whether something is possible or not based on END RESULT.

Not based on what process is needed to achieve it.

In reality, making $100,000+ per day online IS possible.

I know guys who do it.

I myself will be reaching there soon (right now I am at $30,000 per day online).

$100K per day is not unbelievable.

However if someone says you can do it easily or with a simple 1-2-3 push button system, then THAT makes it unbelievable.

The TRUTH lies in the process.

Never in the result.

The Ghana deal was a SCAM due to the process.

Not due to the £90,000 per day opportunity.

Lesson 5 – There will always be ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES

Most people make BAD MISTAKES because they operate from a fear perspective.

They think that they would get only 1 or 2 opportunities in life to make it BIG and if they miss it, they would remain mediocre always.

Nonsense.

You will always get infinite opportunities in your life.

But in order to succeed, you have to grab a genuine opportunity and DO WHAT it takes to succeed in it.

With that being said, you must remember that some opportunities will be BIGGER than others. Some opportunities will give you bigger and better results.

So you need to think rationally and with an open mind to take the right call.

Lesson 6 – Surround yourself with the RIGHT PEOPLE

After having built 5 different multi million dollar business by the age of 26, I can tell you one thing with 100% certainty.

Success is there for the taking for ALL of us.

You just NEED to know

  1. What to do
  2. What NOT to do
  3. How to do
  4. And how to keep on the right track and build on your success

To do all that, you need to get the right mentors and surround yourself with the right people (if you want to get mentored by me, see here).

They are the ones who will inspire you, challenge you and push you to achieve great things.

They are the ones who will CRUSH all your negative doubts and self limiting beliefs and make you achieve things that you are truly capable of.

And most importantly, they are the ones who will ENSURE that you never ever believe your own hype and stay level headed.

So there you go.

These were the 6 lessons that my experience in Ghana taught me.

Even today, whenever I remember about my Ghana experience, I laugh at my own craziness while my stomach clenches thinking about what COULD have happened if things had gone wrong.

In restrospect, this was an experience that has embarrassed and helped me in EQUAL measure.

It has transformed me FROM a young, stupid 22 year old kid who couldn’t handle even a bit of success to a man who consistently succeeds.

Final Thoughts On Buying Gold In Ghana

I achieved all this because I:

  • Stayed HUMBLE
  • Learnt to say NO.
  • Understood the importance of CONTEXT when chasing my dreams.
  • Never decided what was possible and impossible based just on end result but based on what PROCESS is needed to achieve the end result.
  • Believed in existence of endless opportunities and made FULL use of many opportunities to grow to the level that I am currently at.

And last but certainly not the least…I TRULY AND FULLY UNDERSTOOD the importance of having the right mentors and surrounding myself with the right people who would never let me astray.

These lessons CHANGED my life.

And I believe they can do for you too if you follow them.

So let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Also write about your crazy whacky experiences if you have any.

We all have our dumb shocker moments.

I have shared mine in all its (dumbest) glory.

Feel free to share yours too.

We all mistakes but SUCCESS is defined by how we come back from our mistakes.

Just don’t make a Ghana like mistake though. Haha.

Certain mistakes are TOO dangerous to make.

So go out there and CONQUER the world.

I know you can.

The One Thing Book Summary by Gary Keller

The One Thing Book Summary can basically be defined in One sentence; The ONE Thing gives you a very simple approach to productivity, based around a single question, to help you have less clutter, distractions and stress, and more focus, energy and success.

I’m assuming that if you found this article you’re probably feeling like you’re DROWNING with so much to do in your business that you need help.

To a point to where you feel that there is too much work to do and the thought of actually doing it ends up demoralizing you and in the end, and you get almost nothing done?

I recently read Gary Keller’s book “The One Thing” which gives a practical solution for this EXACT problem that cripples so many business owners.

Gary Keller is the chairman of the board and cofounder of Keller Williams Realty, Inc., one of the largest real estate companies in the world.

In his, “The One Thing” book summary, Gary explains the immense power of simplicity and doing the one thing that can make everything else either seem easy or unnecessary.

When I related his ideas and concepts to my own business, it really made a lot of sense.

You see, I run 5 multi-million dollar businesses while managing a decent sized team and things can get SUPER CRAZY at times.

And it’s only going to get worse as I am planning to scale up my business to $100 million in the next few years… So I am on a hiring & new project implementation spree right now.

Anyway….

I really NEEDED something to manage my situation and I must say that reading this book has given me profound clarity on how to move forward.

In today’s post, I am going to share the most crucial lessons that I learned with you.

Before I begin, I want to let you know that these lessons are not just for those who already have a successful business.

These lessons are for everyone because frankly speaking, even a newbie who is starting a business now would have a LOT of things on his plate, which can be overwhelming.

By the way, you can listen to the audio version of the book below:

Audiobook: Listen to “The One Thing Audiobook” Here. You Can Also Check Out Its Reviews And Examples Afterwards.

So moving on….

Lesson 1 – If You Want Success, Don’t Go Big…. Instead Go Small.

You need to dream BIG in life.

But when it comes to achieving your dreams, you need to start narrowing everything down to its MOST BASIC COMPONENT.

The One Thing Big Thing.

Ask yourself a question and really think about it:

What’s the one thing that you can do which can make everything else seem easier?

The best example of this would be the life story of Bill Gates.

  1. Bill was passionate about ONE THING in school – Computers.
  2. The ONE skill he developed was computer programming.
  3. He went on to create ONE company called Microsoft.
  4. Microsoft initially focused on ONE thing – the development and sale of basic interpreters for Altair 8000
  5. Later, Microsoft developed the ONE operating system that made Bill Gates a household name – Windows
  6. Later on, Bill and his wife Melinda started ONE foundation with ONE goal – to save lives of people in poor countries
  7. They found the ONE major cause for deaths in poor countries – Infectious diseases
  8. Which led them to the ONE solution – Vaccination

See how everything comes down to identifying the ONE THING that matters the most.

The point to be noted here is that while the ONE THING is the most important thing, it’s NOT the only thing that matters.

The whole point of finding the ONE THING is to create a domino effect.

When you push a small domino the size of your thumb, it can topple a slightly larger domino standing next to it, which in turn can push a slightly larger domino and the process can go on and on and on.

Theoretically speaking, if you stack all the dominoes in increasing order of size next to each other, you can even topple a domino the size of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING by flicking a small thumb sized domino from one end.

Check out this video:

That’s the power of the domino effect.

Small action leads to BIG of results if you know what to focus on.

That’s why if you want to be successful, you need to narrow down and GO SMALL.

Find the smallest domino.

The ONE THING that can trigger everything.

When you do THAT ONE THING, then the next steps will naturally happen because you have set things in motion.

Lesson 2 – Don’t Make “To Do” Lists. Instead, Make Success Lists.

You must have heard about the 80-20 principle.

The 80-20 principle states that 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.

The point being MAJORITY of your results will come from a few high income producing activities.

Every single day I make over $20,000+ but that does not mean every single working hour of mine is worth the same.

When I do a 3 hour webinar and close it with an offer, I would get a FLURRY of sales over the next few days (ranging from $50,000 – $200,000).

That particular 3 hours of work brings me 10X more money than 20 hours of regular work.

That’s 80-20 principle in a nutshell.

So here’s what you need to do:

List out all the activities that you need to do in your business.

Now eliminate the low income producing activities (80%) and keep the high income producing activities (20%).

Now apply 80-20 rule on the high income activities list AGAIN and narrow down your list.

Keep repeating the cycle until your list comprises of JUST a few things.

Now this is called as your SUCCESS LIST.

Once you have your ONE THING and your SUCCESS LIST nailed down, you can keep focusing on doing just them to get the results you want.

Let me give you an example from my own business:

What’s the ONE THING that I need to focus on to get to my goal of $100 million in the next few years?

LIVE Events.

I need to coordinate more LIVE events where I deliver great value and offer my training and coaching programs.

What would be the activities on my Success List apart from the One Thing?

  1. Emailing my list daily (every email I send out is worth $10,000+)
  2. Doing LIVE webinars (every webinar I do is worth at least $50,000)
  3. Launching my affiliate program

That’s it.

Everything else can be delegated to someone else from my team.

Now you may not be in a position to have your own team of employees but you can understand the point I am making here.

Focus on the high income producing activities.

Chuck out the rest or outsource it (freelancer, odesk, fiverr, etc).

Lesson 3 – Create Time Blocks To Focus On Doing One Thing ONLY

A lot of people take immense pride in being able to multi-task.

Sure, it’s cool to be able to do multiple things at once, but just because it’s cool doesn’t mean it’s effective.

You can watch a game on TV and talk to someone else at the same time but you cannot give either of those tasks the KIND of attention that you could give if you were to do them individually.

Our brain works the BEST when we focus on ONE THING.

It leads to better quality of work, better productivity and better progress.

Some people think that since our body can function without our conscious thought by doing activities like breathing, heart pumping, etc….we are all essentially multi tasking.

Not really.

The part of the brain that coordinates them is DIFFERENT from the part that focuses on a task.

So if you want to make real progress, then focus on doing ONE THING at a time and do a kickass job of it.

Allocate specific TIME BLOCKS for each task so that your mind gets automatically tuned to do just that task in that time.

Here’s the best example for it:

When you go to a movie….

Do you put your cell phone in silent mode?

Yes.

Do you empty your bladder beforehand?

Yes.

Do you have your popcorn and coke with you?

Yes.

Why do you do all of this?

Because when you go to watch a movie in a theater, your focus is on watching the movie ONLY and to get the BEST EXPERIENCE you make sure everything else is put on a standby.

You need to do the same in your business too if you want to get the best results.

Lesson 4 – Be A Maker In The Morning And A Manager In The Afternoon

As a business owner, you have 2 jobs:

  1. To perform high income producing activities
  2. To delegate and coordinate the rest of the activities with others

When you wake up from your sleep, your brain functions the best.

And that’s when you need to focus on performing your highest income producing activities.

For example, writing an email or creating a sales letter or sales video or webinar presentation….all those are high income producing activities.

Get them done first.

Then you can focus on coordinating the rest of the activities as your day progresses.

Be a MAKER in the morning and a manager in the afternoon and watch your results SOAR.

By the way…

Here Are Some Of The One Thing Book Quotes That Will Definitely Motivate You:

  • “Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls– family, health, friends, integrity– are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.”
  • “Your next step is simple. You are the first domino.”
  • “Multitasking is a lie”
  • “A life worth living might be measured in many ways, but the one way that stands above all others is living a life of no regrets.”
  • “It is not that we have too little time to do all the things we need to do , it is that we feel the need to do too many things in the time we have.”
  • “Success is actually a short race—a sprint fueled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over.”
  • “Extraordinary results happen only when you give the best you have to become the best you can be at your most important work.”
  • “a different result requires doing something different.”
  • “Don’t let small thinking cut your life down to size. Think big, aim high, act bold. And see just how big you can blow up your life.”

Lesson 5 – Form Daily Habits That Can Bring About Real Results

Most people focus on trying to get disciplined in order to get results.

But there is a BIG PROBLEM with this approach.

If being highly disciplined (in) is NOT in your DNA, then it’s bloody hard to remain for a considerable amount of time.

Forget about discipline.

All the high achievers in the world are not the most disciplined people out there.

But a common trait amongst them is that they all have developed POWERFUL HABITS that bring about real results for them in their field.

It all depends on what HABITS to cultivate for your situation.

 the one thing examples,the one thing book quotes,the one thing audiobook,the one big thing,the one thing book review,the one thing book summary, one thing at a time quote,

If you are building an online business, going to the gym daily is NOT a habit that is going to impact your results directly (even though it’s a good habit).

But if you were to write a daily email to your list, now that’s a habit that would help you make more sales and grow your business.

So start developing powerful habits ONE BY ONE.

Just find out what habits would impact your results the most and keep at it.

You will make a lot of progress.

Note: if you want on learn more how you can be more successful by applying effective daily habits that help you increase your monthly income from home, i highly recommend you check out our digital marketing course.

Lesson 6 – Secret To Getting Ahead Is Getting Started

As simple as this may sound, it’s pretty true.

Half of the battle is in getting started.

Have you ever had a situation where you felt lethargic to get something done all day but the moment you started doing that work, you really got into it and got it done?

Haha.

That’s just a TRICK that our mind plays with us.

We all face RESISTANCE at some point when we are about to start anything.

Sometimes when we are about to do something really important, we may face FEAR too.

It’s natural.

But you always need to know that these are TEMPORARY feelings that have no meaning.

Once you ignore them and push forward, you will find yourself immersed in your work and get things done.

Thinking of starting a new business?

JUST DO IT.

Thinking of starting a new campaign?

JUST DO IT.

You don’t need to know everything to get started.

You can figure things out along the way.

But what’s important is that you PUSH through and get things done.

That’s what separates the achievers from the dreamers.

Lesson 7 – Connecting Purpose, Priority & Productivity Will Determine How Much You & Your Business Will Grow

If you want to have a super stable business that experiences quantum growth every year, then you need to have these 3 things:

  1. Purpose

I know so many marketers online who just want to make money SOMEHOW.

While making money is important, if you don’t have a LARGER PURPOSE, then it’s hard to build a thriving business that attracts quality customers.

Without purpose, you will be forever chasing the latest and greatest tricks to make a bit more money.

Purpose allows you to see the BIG PICTURE, plan for the future and build your business in a way that LASTS for long.

  1. Priority

Growth happens when you focus on taking the RIGHT ACTION.

Successful people ruthlessly prioritize their actions and start executing the most important ones in a sequential order.

You need to do the same.

  1. Productivity

The success of your business comes down to HOW WELL you execute the important tasks in your business.

Increasing your productivity of the tasks that matter will have an immense impact on your results.

So in a nutshell:

Purpose helps you find the big picture.

Priority helps you identify the right tasks to perform.

Productivity helps you perform those tasks at the most optimum level.

When you FUSE purpose, priority and productivity, you will experience nothing but extraordinary results in your business.

So these are the 7 lessons I learnt from the one thing book summary by Gary Keller.

Go out there and start FOCUSING on what matters in your business and you will achieve a LOT.

Go ahead and create your “Success List of Should Do’s” and get focused on executing every single one per day. The more you stick to the list, the more productive and disciplined you will become.

Joseph Sugarman: 5 Keys To Writing Compelling Copy That Sells

Have you ever wondered what these legendary copywriters like Joseph Sugarman know, that you don’t?

What’s their secret to writing compelling, high-converting copy?

joe sugarman, joe sugarman ads, joe sugarman books, joe sugarman copywriting, joe sugarman net worth, joe sugarman pdf, joe sugarman triggers, joe sugarman wikipedia

How do they overcome the “blank page” syndrome and always manage to come up with effective copy that “hypnotizes” the reader and generates tons of sales?

At one point, I too wanted to know the answers to these questions.

Thankfully, I had an opportunity to mean the legend himself, Joseph Sugarman, at one of our live events.

Joe is a renowned copywriter and the author of best sellers The Adweek Copywriting Handbook and Success Forces.

He’s also known for his hilarious long-copy and his out-of-the-box thinking for direct sales and marketing.

Here’s Joseph Sugarman Top 5 Secrets To Become A Copywriting Genius:

1. You Must Become An Expert To Write Effective Copy

joe sugarman, joe sugarman ads, joe sugarman books, joe sugarman copywriting, joe sugarman net worth, joe sugarman pdf, joe sugarman triggers, joe sugarman wikipedia

In order to write compelling copy that converts, you must first become an expert on the subject. This is true regardless of the product or service you’re promoting.

You need to gather all the information and know every little detail about the offer. Only then will you be able to craft persuasive sales arguments and effectively sell to customers through great copy.

This isn’t anything new or groundbreaking, but a ton of people still overlook the importance of research. But, when you’re writing about a specific product, you need to know how it works – inside and out.

If you only have a vague understanding of the product you’re promoting, you’ll struggle to find a good angle and present it in the best light.

Hence, you absolutely need to invest the necessary time into comprehensive product research.

The story Joseph Sugarman shares in The Adweek Copywriting Handbook goes to show you the importance of research. In fact, he spend three whole days researching a watch, before he decided on laser technology as his angle of approach.

He states that this little detail lead to millions of dollars in sales.

So, before you sit down and start typing – make sure you know everything there is to know about the product or service you’re introducing to the audience.

2. Understand Who Your Customers Are And What Motivates Them

joe sugarman, joe sugarman ads, joe sugarman books, joe sugarman copywriting, joe sugarman net worth, joe sugarman pdf, joe sugarman triggers, joe sugarman wikipediaApart from knowing the product you’re writing about, you also need to know WHO you’re writing for. Your copywriting style will largely depend on the people you want to appeal to.

To be able to effectively sell to a specific group of people, you need to know what they’re interested in, what they like, what motivates them, and how they think.

It’s vital that you understand what their wants & needs are. You also need to understand what their biggest pain points are.

This will allow you to present your offer as the perfect solution to the problems they are facing.

Additionally, knowing your customers will help you adjust your vocabulary. People will find your message more relatable, if you’re using the same language they use in their daily lives.

Furthermore, understanding the audience will help you determine which benefit you need to focus on to facilitate the sale and overcome any buying objections.

3. Understand That The First Draft Is Often Terrible

joe sugarman, joe sugarman ads, joe sugarman books, joe sugarman copywriting, joe sugarman net worth, joe sugarman pdf, joe sugarman triggers, joe sugarman wikipediaThere’s a common misconception about copywriting…

People often believe that experienced copywriters simply sit down and write an entire sales page in a day.

Therefore, when they’re struggling to find the right words, and are writing a single sentence for 15 minutes, they believe they don’t have what it takes to write effective copy.

But, here’s the thing… Writing effective copy that sells is a multi-layered process.

It starts with a rough draft, that’s nothing more than a frame for your copy; something to build upon.

For instance, Joseph Sugarman considers his first drafts to be terrible compared to everyone else’s. But, it’s what he does with his copy afterwards that makes all the difference.

So, his advice to overcoming the ‘blank page syndrome’ is simple: just write.

Joe urges us to write quickly. To simply get something on the page.

It’s much easier to organize things and come up with compelling sales arguments when we write stuff down, compared to keeping everything in our head.

Also, you shouldn’t expect to come up with perfect copy on the spot. Most often, it will take several revisions until you come up with the best way of saying things.

So, the key to effective copywriting actually lies in editing.

When you have a starting point (the first draft), it’s much easier to gather your thoughts and convert them into great sales arguments.

Bottom line is – don’t try to get everything perfect on the first try. Focus on creating a work frame that you can later refine into a great piece of copy through several edits.

4. All Elements In Advertisement Are Designed To Do One Thing: Get You To Read The First Sentence Of The Copy

joe sugarman, joe sugarman ads, joe sugarman books, joe sugarman copywriting, joe sugarman net worth, joe sugarman pdf, joe sugarman triggers, joe sugarman wikipediaWhen thinking about website and ad copy, people tend to get caught up in the design. They want the perfect colors, stunning images that enforce the message, visually appealing layout, and so on… But, do you know what the point of all this is? It’s to get you to read the first line of the copy.

The first line is crucial, because it only takes a few seconds for the reader to make up their mind.

If the first line fails to grab their attention and spark their interest, they likely won’t bother reading the rest of the page. If the first sentence isn’t compelling enough, and doesn’t convey the biggest benefit, all your effort will be in vain.

Therefore, spend as much time as necessary to ensure your first line is as powerful as possible.

It needs to be clear and concise, and the reader should have a pretty good idea what the offer is about and what they can expect to get out of it, just from reading this single sentence.

Also, remember that visuals shouldn’t distract people from the message. Trust me, this happens a lot, and it’s something you want to avoid.

Instead, make sure that all the other elements highlight the message you’re trying to convey with your copy.

5. Frame Your Offers Effectively

To quote the legend himself:

Your ad layout and the first few paragraphs of your ad must create the buying environment most conducive to the sale of your product or service. - Joseph Sugarman Click To Tweet

Now, let’s break down this statement.

At it’s core, it suggests that you need to create a buying frame through which people will view the product or service you’re promoting.

In online advertising, that frame is largely determined by your websites style and design.

Also, depending on the message you’re trying to send, you might use a different combination of colors.

For instance, ads promoting flash sales often use a combination of red and yellow:

On the other hand, high ticket offers and premium membership tend to use gold letters on a black background.

All of the design factors work together to create the right buying environment for each individual product.

Like I mentioned, you don’t want the design to distract the audience. Instead, it should help create an environment that highlights the product you’re promoting.

For example, if you’re a B2B company, your design needs to be clean, simple, professional, and uncluttered.

All in all, make sure it aligns with your business, brand colors, and reinforces the message you’re trying to send.

That way, your copy will automatically be much more effective.

Final Thoughts Joseph Sugarman Copywriting

As I’m sure you’ve gathered from this post, copywriting isn’t as simple as some people think.

It requires comprehensive research, as well as decent writing and editing skills.

On top of that, copy alone doesn’t influence the buying decision. Design plays a huge role, and the right colors and images can have a strong positive effect on your conversions.

That said, copy also isn’t as difficult as you were led to believe. You just need to learn to overcome the ‘blank page syndrome’ and start writing.

Like any other skills, copywriting is something that can be learned and perfected through practice.

And I’m sure these lessons from Joseph Sugarman will help you become a better copywriter, and help you craft compelling copy that generates sales.

I have a friend who’s name is TJ rohleder and wrote another amazing book that changed my life call “How To Get Super Rich In The Opportunity Market

Someone asked me…

He might be thinking to himself. Who is this young drunk kid that has so much energy?!

he said to me; “i was thinking you were drunk because you came at me like a crazyland”

And i said no man, i’m just so excited because you changed my life!

As we got started, we started talking and we started connecting which very quickly we became friends and one of the things i sad to him was this…i sad,

Tj tell me this. So many people start a business, because he’s been at this for so long and make $150 Million dollars pre-internet days.

That would be a lot more money now with internet!

And when i asked him he sad; Shaq, The number one reason why most people fail in this industry is because they simply don’t understand sales and marketing.

5 Timeless Selling Lessons From The ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Jordan Belfort

If you’re interested in selling, entrepreneurship, marketing, advertising stock-market trading, then you’ve probably come across Jordan Belfort also referred to as the “Wolf Of Wall Street”. But, did you know that the movie was based on the book where the real wolf – Jordan Belfort – shares his experiences and offers words of wisdom to aspiring traders, entrepreneurs, and business owners?

jordan belfort, jordan belfort net worth, jordan belfort book, jordan belfort wiki, jordan belfort now, jordan belfort youtube

When I was first started marketing online, I had come across a private training system on closing sales that Jordan had presented at Greg Secker’s Trading Floor.

Regardless of what you think about selling, sales, and Jordan Belfort, when you put that aside he’s training programs have been used by corporations all over the world.

In short – that training changed my life, because no school, college, university never taught me about Influence, Persuasion and Selling. Look, if you want to share your products and services, you need to learn marketing & sales otherwise no one will ever know you even exist.

Jordan Belfort got his nickname as a result of his ruthless Wall Street trading life. His insatiable ambition and crimes led to him spending 22 months in prison.

That’s a lot of time to think and reflect on your life. This self-reflection resulted in two memoirs: The Wolf of Wall Street and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street. In those 22 months Belfort realized his wrongdoings and has drastically changed his life.

He admits to having an unethical approach, and has since been actively trying to change his life for the better. Belfort now inspires others to follow his example and do the same. Today, Jordan Belfort is a best-selling author, as well as a public speaker and an international sales trainer.

There’s a lot one can learn from the life of this former stockbroker. His well-known quotes speak volumes on the entrepreneurial life, and provide the much-needed motivation on an often arduous journey to success.

With that said, here are my favorite top 5 timeless selling lessons from Jordan Belfort – the real wolf of Wall Street:

1. “If you give people a good enough ‘why’, they will always figure out the ‘how’.”

When starting a business, the first thing you need to figure out is your ‘WHY’.

When you have a strong, convincing ‘why’, it will be much easier to identify the ‘how’.

In other words, once you know why you’re doing something, you’ll find the way to make it happen.

If you have a compelling reasons for starting that particular business, you’ll be motivated to give it your 110%!

That’s what Jordan Belfort considers one of his keys to success.

If you give people a good enough 'why', they will always figure out the 'how'. share with friends

Having a powerful “why” will give you the strength and determination to overcome any challenges and keep working towards your goals tirelessly.

Ask yourself what made you go through with this idea in the first place. Why did you chose this particular business? Are you passionate about your work?

Does it have the potential to secure the financial freedom you’re after? Are you motivated by the notion of helping other people improve their lives?

What’s your vision and your mission? Where do you see yourself in 5, 10, 15 years?

The answers to these question will help you identify and crystallize your ‘why’.

You’re bound to experience some ups and downs on your journey to success. When times seem rough, and you feel like throwing in the towel, you might find yourself wondering “Is what I’m doing even worth it?” 

In those moments, just remind yourself of your ‘WHY’ and the answer will become obvious – it ABSOLUTELY is!

2. “Winners use words that say must and will.

How many times have you caught yourself planning something for days, weeks, or even months – only to realize that the plan never comes to fruition?

In my opinion, procrastination is the #1 reason why most people never realize their full potential.

They always look for excuses to delay those important tasks; sometimes indefinitely.

In life, you might not see this as a huge problem (although it definitely can be). But in business, the consequences of delaying action can be severe.

And this is the difference between winners, and people who never rise above mediocrity.

wolf of wall street, jordan beltford

Winners execute their plans. They don’t dilly-dally. Winners don’t use words like ‘should’, ‘might’, or ‘could’.

They use ‘must’ and ‘will’ instead. When winners plan something, they immediately start working on realizing those plans.

Winners don’t hesitate. They don’t put anything off. Instead, winners go out there and do what needs to be done – day in and day out!

So, if you want to be a winner and achieve success, stop procrastinating. Change your lingo and re-wire your brain.

Always remind yourself of what must be done, and then tell yourself you will do it as quickly as possible.

3. “When you live your life by poor standards, you inflict damage on everyone who crosses your path, especially those you love.”

What Jordan Belfort considers the saddest night of his life was the night before he went to jail. And not because he thought he wasn’t guilty.

Quite the contrary, he acknowledged the mistakes he made, and made peace with the fact that he belonged there.

What broke his heart was, in fact, was his kids’ reaction when he tried to explain that he’s going away.

That’s when he had a moment of clarity. Hence, the quote below was born.

When you live your life by poor standards, you inflict damage on everyone who crosses your path, especially those you love. share with friends

It’s one of my personal favorites, because it highlights the universal truth, that so many of us often forget.

Our actions affect not just ourselves, but can have a lasting impact on everyone around us.

And when we make poor decision, we hurt both ourselves, and everyone who’s a part of our lives – people we love and care about.

Although you probably won’t find yourself facing prison time, this is definitely something to keep in mind. Especially when starting or running a business.

It’s easier than you might think to bury yourself in work, and start neglecting the people around you.

I’m sure you know at least a couple of stories where the relationship between people took a wrong turn, because one or both of them were too preoccupied with work to dedicate time to life.

Don’t let that happen to you. Learn from other people’s mistakes, and always be mindful of how your actions impact the lives of your loved ones.

4. “Act as if you’re a wealthy man, rich already, and then you’ll surely become rich.”

Jordan Belfort firmly believes that success begins in your head. 

Now, this doesn’t simply mean you’ll be “faking it until you make it”.

There are actually scientific benefits to acting if you’re already successful and as if you’ve already achieved your goals – whether they are living in a huge mansion with a pool, driving your favorite sports car, or having $1 Million in your bank account.

And no, this isn’t the ‘Law of Attraction’ mumbo-jumbo. Instead, it rests upon the part of your brain called the reticular activating system (RAS).

As Jordan Belfort brilliantly put it, among other functions “the RAS acts as a sort of a gatekeeper and file organizer for the brain.”

So, what you need to do is plant that seed of success in your mind. You’ll do this by feeding your RAS a steady flow of success images, sounds, tastes, and thoughts.

jordan belfort, jordan belfort net worth, jordan belfort book, jordan belfort wiki, jordan belfort now, jordan belfort youtubeThe more specific you are, the better. Find images of the house you want to live in and the car you want to drive.

That way, the RAS will have an easier time capturing your new reality.

Then, once your subconscious mind internalizes the visions of success, confidence, and wealth – they will become your primary focus.

It’s like creating a habit of positive thinking. In turn, you’ll eliminate the self-doubt, insecurity, indecision, procrastination, and other harmful thoughts that are weighing you down and preventing you from realizing your dreams.

You’ll feel motivated, confident, energized, and determined to take action and achieve the goals you set in front of yourself.

That’s the main difference between this and “Secret”. You won’t be sitting in your living room chair trying to attract success.

You’ll actually ‘train’ your mind to ensure that you will go out there and make it happen!

5. “No matter what happened to you in your past, you are not your past, you are the resources and the capabilities you glean from it. And that is the basis for all change.”

The quote above came from his first ever speech after being released from prison. It was Belfort’s response to what he would do moving forward.

Although his situation was unique, to say the least, his words can still be applied to the lives of millions of people across the globe.

And that, in my opinion, is the true beauty of his quotes.

This one simply reminds us that making mistakes is simply human nature.

I’m sure you’ve made a couple mistakes in your life. I know I’ve made a fair share of mine.

But, here’s the thing: the mistakes we made don’t define who we are. And yet, so many people are haunted by their previous failures.

I’ve seen it a thousand times in the online marketing industry. People try one thing, and if it doesn’t work out on the first go, they just give up.

And I can tell you with full confidence that this is the main reason over 90% of aspiring entrepreneurs fail. They just throw in the towel.

But the thing is, rarely anyone gets everything right on the first try. It took me several years to get to the point where I’m consistently generating a decent sum of cash.

And I don’t know a single successful person who hasn’t hit a few bumps on their road to success.

So, instead of letting the past mistakes define who you are today – learn from them.

View them as valuable experiences, and use them to refine your approach and improve yourself both as a person and as an entrepreneur.

Mistakes are inevitable. How you react to them is what truly defines you!

Final Thoughts

These powerful lessons and quotes from Jordan Belfort really make you think, don’t they? If you ponder on them and then actually act on it, you’ll be able to see dramatic changes in your business and life just like I’ve done.

There’s plenty more valuable insights you can gather from the real wolf of Wall Street, so I strongly suggest you read both his memoirs.

I know they’ve been an endless source of inspiration for me, and provided me with a ton of valuable advice – on both life and business.

And I’m sure you’ll gain a ton of value from them, too.

8 Sources of Strength Powerful Enough To Overcome The Fear Holding You Back

What are your powers? Few of us are focused on what our powers are, let alone practicing or leading from those aspects of ourselves. Most of us lead overcompensating for our perceived weaknesses. Leading from insecurity makes us work harder but not necessarily smarter, or with any sense of joy. In overcompensating for our perceived insecurities, we hit burnout quicker, are more anxious, and find work more taxing. Everything in life has threads of fear in it, so we may as well learn to find the strengths which lay beneath them.

Lets dive now into the 8 sources of strength powerful enough to overcome the fear holding you back.

Knowledge

fear,fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life

Knowledge is the strength underneath the fear of not having confidence.

Knowledge is power. It is difficult to feel comfortable when we lack the knowledge necessary to make us versatile and flexible in our daily challenges.

Without knowledge we function from a weaker position, especially when in the throes of conflict or negotiation. Preparation and knowledge naturally endow us with more confidence.

If we lack the information we need it is important to humble ourselves to saying, “I don’t know,” and learn.

We can go back to the drawing board, fill in the missing pieces, so as to avoid being in the weaker position going forward. When in the fear of insecurity, gather the knowledge necessary to lead from a place power.

Openness

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life

Openness is the strength below our fears of change. Having knowledge is essential for success, but we must not allow ourselves to become so fixed or rigid in our thinking that we come to view our knowledge as the only correct knowledge.

Being open is a strength which makes us more likeable and approachable to others. When we are open we are perceived as easier to work with.

Rigid thinking and its subsequent limits overcompensate for our fears of change.

We falsely believe if we know it all that we are somehow impermeable. However, close mindedness and/or rigid rules do not make our egos any less fragile. No one likes a know-it-all.

When facing fears of change, lead from the strength of open curiosity.

Patience

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life Patience is the strength that lies beneath the fear of the unknown. Impatience is a reaction to living in the grey area of uncertain results.

To overcompensate for this fear we tend to become reactive, causing us to make less than stellar decisions. These impulsive decisions most often push our desired results further away from us.

In practicing patience, we develop the strength and emotional resilience to let things take their natural course.

Being patient makes us smarter.

A little space helps us to forecast our current situation beyond our initial emotional reactions. When we learn to wait, solutions come without us having to chase them.

When facing fears of uncertainty, lead from the strength of choosing to waiting well.

Boldness

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life Boldness is the strength which lies beneath the fear of conflict.

Many of us cower under conflict.

When under siege we hear our instincts telling us what to do, but because we become overwhelmed with the projected negative consequences acting strongly could bring, we don’t allow ourselves to step into our boldness.

We can choose to be bold, fair, in our power and to trust that the consequences of our actions will only help propel our success forward, and deepen our sense of self-confidence.

A simple fact; unless we say what we want, we won’t get what we want.

When in the fear of conflict, lead from the strength to rise to the occasion.

Allow

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life Allowing is the strength that lies beneath the fear of not having control.

Often times we’re so fear based that we overcompensate for this fear with being controlling.

To find a deeper sense of strength allow people to be who they are, allow situations to be what they are, and allow yourself to be who you are, without self-recrimination.

Allowing is a tremendous power because it keeps the flow of things open and resistance at bay.

It is amazing what develops when we allow things to manifest in their own way and own timing. When we allow the process of success to have its own life, we make succeeding look easy.

When consumed with the fear of not having control, lead from the strength of dropping the rope.

Courage

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life Courage is the strength which lives below our fears of failure.

Courage trumps fear.

Whenever we feel paralyzed with fear, courage is about the last thing we believe we can tune into or utilize.

Fear has two waves; the first is shock. When we’re in shock, courage cannot come.

Shock is short lived, however. Once shock passes, our minds begin to unscramble allowing us to think clearly and efficiently.

We begin to see a path or paths to our solution, and are able to approach our problem with an adrenalized and focused readiness.

This is the birth of courage. Courage isn’t something we have, it is something we do.  Believe it or not, we often perform best when under pressure.

When in the fear of failing, lead from the courage to take action.

Quiet

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life Quiet is the power beneath the fear of not being good enough.

When we feel nervous, the natural tendency is to talk too much.

Nervous talking is not success-driven communication, and in reality the more we talk, the more insecure we get, and unfortunately, the more we keep talking.

In a social world dominated by extroversion, the strength of being quiet is one many never utilize or study.

When we are quiet we present as attentive and calm.

People want and need to be heard and understood, so when facing insecurities of not being good enough, learn to listen.

When people feel heard they become interested in the listener. Security doesn’t need volume; it speaks for itself.

When facing fears of not feeling not good enough, lead from the strength of being quietly present.

Mindfulness

fear, fear of failure,how to overcome fear of failure,fear of failure psychology,how to cope with failure in career,how to stop failing,how to face failure in life,how to accept failure in life Mindfulness is the strength which lies below feelings of emergency.

Fear is a power all unto itself because fear is a fuel.  

Whenever we’re in fear we move into action to remove the fear as quickly as possible. The reason fear causes so many problems is because it makes us reactive.

To make fear our greatest strength, we must use it to practice mindfulness. When in a state of emergency fear makes us acutely aware of what is going on and if we can stay calm, as Captain Sully did when landing the plane in the Hudson River, we too will have more clarity on the front lines of our own critical decisions.

When under the fear of a pressured situation, lead from the strength of attunement to the moment.

When we lead from our strengths, we become more confident and successful. We are able to move with a certain grace through our troubles where we are impacted by them, but not flattened by them.

To lead from our strengths we must use challenges as tests of our character. We can choose to rise to our occasions and go against our biological programming to naturally regress under stress. Having this type of composure takes practice and awareness, but if we’re going to practice anything this year, why not let it be leading from our strengths?

Conclusion

Yes, it is hard to implement these in one go, but it’s doable. Focus on practicing various points you’ve learn here in your daily routine and track what progress you’ve made on a weekly basis.

The longer people procrastinate implementing these, the  more they loose making a change for the better.

Sir Richard Branson 5 Nuggets Of Wisdom On Life & Business

This is an personal business hero of mine. I love Virgin, I love Richard Branson, I love their First Class flights, actually the last time I was on one, I was having a date with my wife, yep 50,000+ feet in the sky, I love it.

I was a total fanboy when I met Richard, let me backtrack…I was maybe 15 years old when I first came across him, I  bought his biography, it was a worn out second hand copy from Amazon, I think it was 1p and s+h. I read it cover to cover. Recently he gave me his new book, signed of course. 😉

He inspired me to think bigger, in the billions, I made a commitment to myself as a future business owner, I would be FUN, I would develop my personality and what’s more I am deffo going to buy myself an island (still in the works), aiming to buy before I turn 35.

So it was a huge pleasure to meet him and spend some time with him in Singapore, learning some real valuable things that I want to share with you.

Would you like to know how Sir Richard Branson managed to acquire a net worth of over $5 billion, while at the same time taking time to travel the world, attempt to break world records, try out new hobbies, and just generally enjoy life to the fullest?

Aside from his HUGE success in the business world, I truly respect and admire him for his unique outlook on life. He has alot of fun. He breaks the rules.

You’re buried in tasks and responsibilities. You’re managing a hundred things at once. And, even if you’re making a ton of money, it can feel like you’ve fully devoted your time to the business. There’s just no room left to lean back and enjoy the life you’ve created.

There may come a time when you’ll ask yourself: “When will I get to reap the rewards? When will I get a chance to enjoy the financial freedom my business grants me?”

It’s exactly these types of questions that Sir Richard Branson has the answers to. He is a world-renowned business magnate, entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist.

However, apart from his huge business success with Virgin Records and other business ventures…

He’s also well-known for his quotes and a seemingly laid-back outlook on life.

He understands perfectly that sometimes business can engulf your life. But, that never stopped him from taking the time to enjoy himself and attempt to pull of crazy stuff like the fastest Atlantic Ocean crossing.

So, how does he pull that off? How does he keep his business ventures running at full capacity, while also seemingly having all the time in the world to do the things he actually enjoy?

Well, these 5 nuggets of wisdom I learned from Richard Branson might just answer that question for you:

1. Spend Time With Your Family And Learn To Delegate

 richard branson, richard branson biography, richard branson net worth, richard branson quotes, richard branson wiki, richard branson worth, sir richard branson

Rumour has it that Richard never actually went to a grocery store for 5+ years. In my early years of business, I too stopped going, I think for about 3+ years I never had stepped foot into a grocery shop. Even now this is not something I enjoy. My wife orders from Amazon prime and I just do not enjoy shopping or going to the grocery shops at all.

When you start a business, you’ll quickly notice your attention’s being pulled to dozen different sides.

If you’re actively involved in every business activity, you simply won’t have the time for much else.

And I’m sure neglecting your friends and family isn’t something you’d want to do. But, it’s bound to happen unless you learn to delegate.

You see, what Sir Richard Branson helped me realize is that the major flaw of aspiring entrepreneurs is that they believe the only way to run a business is by doing everything yourself.

However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. First, you’d have to be an expert in at least a dozen of different fields. Even then, it’s physically impossible for a single person to do the required amount of work in a day.

If you take that approach, not only will you have no time for social activities… You won’t even manage to get everything done in your business.

So, what you should do instead is build a team of like-minded individuals. Then, delegate some of the tasks to the qualified team members.

Create systems that your employees can follow. Implement processes, clearly define goals, make sure everyone knows their responsibilities, etc.

You want to get to a point where the business can function at 100% even if you’re not there.

Now, I’m not saying you can completely exclude yourself from all business activities…

You’ll still have to craft weekly or monthly plans, and manage your team from time to time.

But, you’ll have more time on your hands to spend with your family and simply enjoy the lifestyle you’ve created for yourself.

2. When People Say Bad Things About You – Prove Them Wrong!

 richard branson, richard branson biography, richard branson net worth, richard branson quotes, richard branson wiki, richard branson worth, sir richard branson

Put your head down and get to work.

Richard doesn’t shy away from any hard work.

I remember when I had nothing but a big Idea and $800 to make it a reality.

I started my first business – from my mother’s kitchen table…

So, I’m sure you imagine how people reacted when I told them I was going to be a millionaire one day.

They doubted me, called me crazy, trying to dissuade me from chasing my dreams, and even laughed in my face.

But, guess who’s laughing now?

The point I’m trying to make is – don’t let the bad things people say about you discourage you from following your dream.

Instead, use them to fuel your passion and as a motivation to prove the ‘doubters’ wrong!

You’re bound to hear people say something’s impossible. But, how would they know if they haven’t tried it!

I was morbidly overweight and in debt when I first started building my business. So, I dare say that I’m a living, breathing proof that nothing is impossible.

If you stay focused and determined, don’t stray from the path, and work hard towards achieving your goals – you WILL accomplish them.

Take the advice of Sir Richard Branson and don’t let the “haters” weigh you down with their negative attitude. Distance yourself from these people.

Surround yourself with positive people who will give you their unconditional support instead.

Dare to dream big! And, don’t believe doubters – even if they happen to be a member of your family.

3. Do What You Love And Infuse Personality In Your Business.

 richard branson, richard branson biography, richard branson net worth, richard branson quotes, richard branson wiki, richard branson worth, sir richard branson

Personality wins the game. You see business is business, but when you add personality it “Humanises” the connection with your prospects.
As I’m sure you’ve gathered already from this post, running a business of any kind is no easy endeavor.

The road to success is rarely a straight line. More often, it’s a winding road, filled with bumps and roadblocks.

And it takes mental fortitude, determination, and perseverance to reach the finish line.

In that regard, what Sir Richard Branson suggest – and I fully agree with him on the subject – is that you should do what you love.

To quote the legend himself: “Follow your dreams, get involved in life, in the things that interest you.”

If that dream is to create a business, make sure it revolves around something you thoroughly enjoy. I was listening to him when he spoke at the conference and a key factor in his success was that he took the risks no one was taking, he took calculated risks and in the process had alot of fun.

Don’t devote your entire life to something just because it might bring you financial stability. Instead, try to turn your passion into a profitable business.

If you’re working 8 hours a day on something you genuinely enjoy, you will lead a much more fulfilling life.

As for the sofa in the kitchen, it’s a brilliant metaphor Branson uses to remind us of what’s truly important in life.

He stresses that, to be truly happy, you don’t need much more than a kitchen big enough to hold a sofa, where you can spend quiet time with the partner you love, simply enjoying the small things in life.

You don’t need many more “add-ons”. Being successful doesn’t necessarily mean you have to live in a 500 square feet mansion.

As long as you’re surrounded with the people you love, and have enough money to live a comfortable life, you should be more than content.

4. Keep Setting New Challenges For Yourself

 richard branson, richard branson biography, richard branson net worth, richard branson quotes, richard branson wiki, richard branson worth, sir richard branson

Pushing yourself makes you grow. Growth is the key you want to have as a habit in your day to day life.

I’m continuously fascinated by the human ability to push boundaries and achieve incredible things.

Whenever we feel like we’ve reached our pique, there’s always someone to prove that we can go even further.

I’m sure you know the saying: “The sky is the limit.” Well, we might need to come up with a new phrase, since this one’s obviously disapproved by Elon Musk and the likes, who are sending cars into space, among other things.

In other words, when we put our minds to a task, we can achieve something seemingly impossible. The trick is to constantly challenge those boundaries and set new challenges in front of ourselves.

That’s what Sir Richard Branson states as his motivation. He always creates new challenges for himself, to see just how much further he can go.

I’ve adopted this approach, and I can attest to the fact that it really helps you give your 110%.

You just need to get out of your comfort zone, and use each day as an opportunity to learn something new, develop a new skill, or simply improve on what you already know.

In today’s business climate, with competition all over the corner, there’s one person you should strive to be better than. Yourself from yesterday.

To reach your full potential, you constantly need to challenge yourself. Do more, become better at something, do it more efficiently, do something that you haven’t done before…

Try to be a better person each and every day, and you’ll reach incredible heights.

5. Do Some Good, Come On?

 richard branson, richard branson biography, richard branson net worth, richard branson quotes, richard branson wiki, richard branson worth, sir richard branson

One of the key concepts Richard Branson lives by is “giving back”.

He firmly believes that any successful person holds the responsibility of doing some good for the world.

If you believe in Karma, that this makes perfect sense and requires no further explanation.

If you’re more keen on approaching life from a pragmatic standpoint, this approach shows that you are genuinely helping improve the world and are not just in it to make as many sales as possible and earn a ton of money.

Believe it or not, Richard Branson began giving back to the community when he was just 17 years old. He did it by starting his own charity, and has given out hundreds of thousands of dollars to countless noble causes since.

This is the best way to leave an impact in the world. After all, once your time on this Earth is up, all the money you’d have left behind will do you no good. The thing people will remember are the actions you took and the impact you had on the lives of others.

And, if you ask me, there’s limitless joy in helping those in need.

Life is essentially a game of chance, and some have it better than others. If you’re in a position where you can help save a life, or simply make someone’s day by donating a small sum to a charity, then do so.

You’ll notice you feel much better than you would spending the same amount of money on yourself.

So, for example, instead of going out for lunch in a fancy, expensive restaurant, put that money towards a noble cause.

I’m sure that’s a “sacrifice” most of us can afford to make.

Being successful isn’t just about making as much money as possible. Although it should be a goal that motivates you, in today’s day and age MONEY MOTIVATES.

One of the things Richard Branson always inspires me is thinking bigger, I am also planning to get on his Virgin Galactic Flight, it’s a $200,000 cost but I’m sure it’ll be the best money spent ever.

It’s about living your best life, enjoying every second of it, doing what you love, and spending time with your friends and family.

Money is simply a catalyst that makes all of these things possible. Nothing more. Therefore, it shouldn’t be your primary focus in life.

Instead, do what you love, and challenge yourself to grow as a person each and every day.

Because, regardless of how much money you have in your bank account, you’ll never be truly happy unless you take the time for yourself and learn to enjoy the little things in life.

I also recommend buying 1 or all of Richard Branson’s book.


He’s little book “Screw It, Let’s Do It” changed my life.

Tai Lopez Shares 5 Untold Success Secrets

Wouldn’t you like to learn how this social media “seen on everywhere” Tai Lopez guy gets traffic, leads and sales growing his social media empire? Well a while back we did a webinar** on this and people just went crazy.

Even though we might do one again on the future, for now i wanted to share a couple of things i learned form him.

Tai Lopez has become very well known due to his 67 steps signature program. It starts off with a $67 product which provides incredible value for that price.

Then, there are various upsells and offers which range from $1,000 to $10,000 for this digital persuasion training programs.

At the end of his funnel are the high level $25,000-$50,000 mentorship programs.

**You can check out the webinar we did on the right here.

Here are the 5 little-known lessons from Tai’s success that I’ve discovered:

Lesson #1 – Working Hard Doesn’t Guarantee Success

When I met Tai Lopez, I could immediately sense he was a beyond your “average” smart guy.

The thing with him is that, at every level, he has massive leverage to having a great team, to investing in himself consistently, to always be hiring mentality, to putting out daily content.

However, this is not just hard work, but also smart work.

Why? Well, because the work he produces once – for example his YouTube Video – can now be seen by millions of people.

You see, our goal is never to work harder. And I’m not just referring to entrepreneurs, but people as a species.

And, here’s the thing. Working hard doesn’t correlate to success.

Tai Perfectly explains this in one of his YouTube videos: 

Here’s the thing – the 10 richest people on the planet make more than 3.5 billion at the bottom. That’s half the world!

It’s insane to think that 10 people can make more money than half the people on this planet combined

So, take this fact into consideration for a moment. Then, think about how much work can these 10 people possibly do in a day?

If they don’t eat or sleep, that’s the maximum of 24h x 10 people = 240h.

Then, how much work can 3.5 billion people do, if they only work 1 hour a day. Three and a half billion hours!

So, it’s obvious that the amount of work you put it doesn’t guarantee success.

Working smarter is the key here. Figuring out ways to invest less effort, while gaining bigger benefits.

Lesson #2 – You Can’t Catch All Opportunities, But You Can Certainly Catch A Few

There are so many amazing opportunities out there in the world…

Yet, so few people are actually prepared to seize them and reap the rewards.

The keyword here being “preparation“.

How many times have you looked at someone successful and thought:

“Man, he/she had some insane good luck.”

In some cases, you might be absolutely right.

However, in most instances, it goes beyond just being in the right place at the right time.

There’s a famous saying, attributed to the Roman philosopher Seneca, that perfectly explains this:

“Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity.”

So, instead of wallowing in self-pity or envying those who appear more fortunate…

Prepare yourself for when the next opportunity comes your way.

They pop up almost every single day. That said, don’t worry about catching each and every one.

Read and educate yourself first. Learn something new every day. Hone your skills and always stay up to date with the current trends.

Then, seize the perfect opportunity when it presents itself.

If you do the necessary preparation, you might just be that “lucky” guy who recognized the perfect opportunity and converted it into a lucrative business endeavor.

Lesson #3 – Maintain Your Physical Health

When building a business, it’s quite easy to overlook the importance of physical health.

Yet, the state of both your mind AND your body have a tremendous impact on your business.

When I’ve first met with Tai, he shared that he’s spent over $1 Million in his physical body transformation. Now, I’m convinced you don’t need to do anything crazy like that. However, Tai’s example goes to show the importance of physical health.

By balancing your health, your wealth and your social life you’ll reach a state of eudaimonia

Which is a fancy word for “excellent life quality”. Or as Tai Lopez calls it: “The Good Life.”

Tai stresses out the importance of health in his “67 steps”, for apparent reasons.

If you’re not in the pink of health, chances are you won’t be able to reach pique performance in your business.

If you’re only eating junk food, not sleeping enough, and not exercising – you’ll constantly feel sluggish, exhausted, demotivated, and you won’t have the required levels of energy to get things done.

The reason I take this advice very seriously is because Tai lives what he preaches.

He’s built a team of professionals in charge of his overall well-being, exercise routines, and diet.

And, apart from his jiu jitsu and daily swimming sessions, he never fails to dedicate at least 30 minutes to ensure his physical health is impeccable.

Lesson #4 – Tai Lopez Motto: If You Have Something To Do, Don’t Wait Until You’re 90

Throughout my career, I’ve men hundreds of different types of people.

But I noticed that most of them have one thing in common:

They’re fantasizing and daydreaming about what they ideal lifestyle might look like.

They just keep adding stuff to their bucket lists, while never really doing anything about it.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the sentence: “I wish I co do this or that.”

And my response is always the same – What’s stopping you?!

I adopted this mentality thanks to stuff I learned from Tai Lopez. He’s what I would call a “man of action”.

He doesn’t wait for things to come his way. Instead, he goes out there and grabs them!

And that’s what you need to do as well, if you want to be successful in today’s world.

You have to go beyond planning and wishful thinking. There’s only so much time we’re given on this Earth.

Make use of every single second! So, whatever it is you’re aiming for, get up and take action NOW.

If you’re thinking that you’re buried in responsibilities, then I hate to break it to you… But that’s only an excuse.

There are 24 hours in a single day. You can’t tell me, with all honestly, that you can’t take an hour to invest in yourself, your hopes, and your dreams.

Want to build a lucrative online business? Take the first step today – even if it’s simply reading about different possibilities.

Stop procrastinating and waiting for the perfect opportunity to fall into your lap.

Take action, and make it happen today. Don’t wait until you’re 90 – by then, it might already be too late.

Lesson #5 – You Must Have An End Goal

Like I mentioned, time is an extremely limited resource.  We never know how much we have left, and it always runs out faster than we expected.

So, make sure to use your time properly. To do so, you must first set a clear end goal in front of yourself.

Where do you want to be in 5, 10 years? What do you want to do? Where do you want to live? What car do you want to drive?

How would you like your everyday life to look like?

Once you’ve answered all these questions, think about HOW you’re going to get there.

Create an actionable plan, and divide it into smaller milestones.

Make sure that you’re working towards that end goal every single day.

Having a clear goal in mind (and preferably, on paper as well) will help you remind yourself why you’re doing all this in the first place.

Simultaneously, milestones and smaller tasks will help give you a sense of accomplishment.

That way, instead of thinking about how much further you have to go to reach the end goal, you’ll always be able to see how far you’ve already come.

And each day will be one step closer to achieving your dream!

Without a goal in sight, you’ll feel like you’re aimlessly wandering. It will be difficult to find a reason behind all the hard work you’re putting in.

Whereas with an achievable end goal, you’ll be more motivated, energized, empowered, and productive.

So, if you haven’t already – write down your personal and professional goals on a piece of paper.

Place them somewhere visible, for instance on your work desk, to ensure that you’re moving towards these goals every single day.

Self Discipline For Entrepreneurs

What’s at the core of achieving the good life? It is not learning how to set goals. It is not learning how to better manage your time. And it’s not mastering the attributes of leadership, either. It’s Self Discipline.

Every day, in a thousand different ways, we are trying to improve ourselves by learning how to do things. We spend a lifetime gathering knowledge – in classrooms, through textbooks, through personal experiences. And if knowledge is power, if knowledge is the forerunner to success, why do we fall short of our objectives? Why, in spite of all our knowledge and collected experiences, do we find ourselves aimlessly wandering? Settling in for a life of existence rather than a life of substance?

There are many answers to this question. Your answer might be different from everyone else you know.

Despite so many different answers to this question, the common denominator might be the absence of self discipline in applying our knowledge.

The key word is discipline, as in self-discipline.

Self Discipline Fact

It doesn’t really matter how smart you are if you don’t utilize your knowledge. The fact that you graduated magna cum laude makes no difference if you’re stuck in a low-paying job.

It’s irrelevant that you attend every seminar that comes to town if you don’t apply what you’ve learned.

We spend our lives gathering: acquiring knowledge, developing skills, collecting experiences. But we must also apply the knowledge, skills and experiences we gather in the realms of life and business. We must learn to use what we’ve learned.

And once we’ve applied that knowledge, we must study the results of that process and refine our approach.

The Real Success

Finally – by trying, observing, refining, and trying again – our knowledge will inevitably produce worthy, admirable results. And with the joy and results of our efforts, we continue to fuel our ambition with the positive reinforcement of continued progress.

Pretty soon, we’ll find that we’re swept into a spiral of achievement, a vertical rise to success. And the ecstasy of that total experience makes for a life triumphant over tragedy, dullness and mediocrity.

But for this whole process to work for us, we must first master the art of consistent self-discipline. This ability is necessary if we want to master the art of setting goals, time management, leadership, parenting and relationships.

If we don’t make the effort to include consistent self-discipline in our daily lives, the results we seek will be sporadic and elusive. It takes persistent effort to truly effectively manage our valuable time. Without it, we’ll be routinely frustrated. Our time will be eaten up by others whose demands are stronger than our own.

It takes self discipline to conquer the nagging voices in our minds: the fear of failure, the fear of success, the fear of poverty, the fear of a broken heart. It takes discipline to keep trying when that nagging voice within brings up the possibility of failure.

The Reality Of Self Discipline

Self discipline is also necessary to admit our errors and recognize our limitations. The voice of the human ego speaks to all of us. Sometimes, that voice tells us to magnify our value or accomplishments beyond our actual results. It leads us to exaggerate, to not be totally honest. It takes self discipline to be totally honest, both with ourselves and with others.

Be certain of one thing: Every exaggeration of the truth, once detected by others, destroys your credibility. It makes all that you say and do suspect. As soon as a business colleague figures out that you tend to exaggerate, they will think you always exaggerate. And they’ll never quite hold you in the same regard again. Never.

The tendency to exaggerate, distort or even withhold the truth is an inherent part of all of us. It starts when we’re kids. Johnny says, “I didn’t do it. I didn’t do it!” Well, maybe Johnny didn’t do it, but he probably had something to do with it. The same pattern continues when we reach adulthood.

We exaggerate the benefits of a product to make a sale, exaggerate our net worth to impress old friends, exaggerate how closer we are to closing a deal to impress the boss. Only an all-out, self disciplined assault can overcome this tendency.

The Results Achieved 

It takes a great deal of self discipline to change a habit.

Once formed and internalized, habits act like a giant cable – a nearly unbreakable instinct that only long-term, disciplined activity can change. We must unweave every strand of that cable, slowly and methodically, until the cable that once held us in bondage becomes nothing more than scattered strands of wire. It takes the consistent application of a new, more desirable discipline to overcome undesirable habits.

We require self discipline to plan, as well as execute our plans. It takes self discipline to look with full objectivity at the results of our applied plan. And it takes self discipline to change either our plan or our method of execution, if the results are poor. It takes self discipline to remain firm when the world throws opinions at our feet. And it also takes self discipline to ponder the value of someone else’s opinion.

Especially when our pride and our arrogance lead us to believe that we are the only ones with the answers.

With this consistent self discipline applied to every area of our lives, we can discover untold miracles and uncover unique possibilities and opportunities.
