So how to think like an unconventional millionaire. Question number one, why is thinking important? Who can tell me? Why is thinking important? Mindset is 80% of it, 20% mechanics. Okay, 80% mindset, 20% mechanics, yes. Business is an intellectual sport. Business intellectual sport, yes. It’s where your emotions come from. It’s where Your emotions come from. If this is the first time you’re joining us, what I always do, I’m highly interactive, I hate, I fucking hate lecture. Okay, when I was going to school, when the professor was lecturing me, I was falling asleep. I don’t wanna do that, so you can see the mic there.
Any time you have a question, any time you have a what? Question. Stop me, go to the mic, I’ll answer it, highly interactive. We’re gonna dive quite deep this evening. I’ve been wanting to do this talk, do this piece, this training, for some time now, probably six, seven months. I’ve been thinking about it, thinking about it, and I wasn’t sure the right timing. I think, you know, this month is a good time, but I think what I’m about to share with you might contradict some of your beliefs. Some of the things you might not agree with, and that’s completely fine, is that okay. Yeah, it’s okay. And so I want you to know that you could cafeteria this.
You could cafeteria this, you don’t have to take all the hundred percent. You could say, you know what, I kinda don’t, Dan, I don’t agree with you that 30%, but I like the 70%. Can you just take that an implement, yes? Yes. – Yeah, so it’s completely fine. So just know you have the luxury of catering to this. How many of you agree that millionaires, we think differently from the poor and the middle class. Yes. So part of my job today is to help you understand the distinction and start making some new, powerful decisions. And, what we’re gonna cover today is not so much the woo-woo, foo-foo, tree-hugging, law of attraction crap, okay, I’m not gonna cover that. And I’m not gonna cover spiritual laws of success and things like that.
Nothing wrong with that. You know, some of that I buy into, but that’s not what tonight is about. So here’s what you can expect. You know, why I always talk about the specialty I’m known for, breakthrough business strategies, that’s not what we will talk about today, okay. I’ve been able to achieve millionaire status by the age of 27, multi-millionaire status by the age of 30, I’m 34 right now. I started from nothing, nothing, not knowing anybody, no contacts, with no personal or family resources. My family didn’t come from money. No backing and no formal education. I’m a college dropout. So this is the first time ever that I will discuss my personal philosophies, business practices. What has helped me achieve the success that I have today? And, this also answers the questions a lot of people ask me.
How I do what I do, what I do, and why I do them. So this workshop kind of answers those questions, does that make sense? Yes. – It answers those questions. People want to know, who do you work. And how do you think about certain things, so this is designed to answer that. So the sort of real success information that you don’t get from other places. I am not here to motivate you. In fact, who can motivate you? You. – Yeah, nobody can motivate you. Only you can motivate you. If anything, I’m here to give you the reality that you want to think twice if this millionaire thing is what you want or not. ‘Cause it ain’t for everybody, absolutely not. If it is for everybody, everybody would be a millionaire.
Okay, it’s not for everybody. So warning, just so if you’ve never been to my talk, anything like that, so this might get a little dicey for you. If you’re offended by grownup talk, frank language, occasional or frequent, either way. So no pie in the sky, what I call woo-woo teachers who promise you. Just think hard enough and want it bad enough. The universe will manifest it for you. Okay, it’s very much like if you want to lose weight and be fit and have a six-pack ab. You can sit there and you can just hope and think positive. And yes, I see myself having a six-pack ab. Big Mac, by the way. Yes, um, I’m skinny, and I look so good. No, you’re fat, okay.
That’s not how it works, that’s not how it works, okay. So we’re not gonna talk about that. Here’s the statistics. Take any hundred people at the start of their working careers. Follow them for 40 years. How long? – 40 years. – 40 years. Until they reach the retirement age, here’s what you’ll find. Only one, how many? One. Will be wealthy, one. Four will be financially secure. Five will continue working, or actually five, 50 something, something is missing. Not because they want to, because they have to. 36 will be dead and 54 will be dead broke, depending on their relatives, friends, government, or even charity for a minimum standard of living. That means only 5% are successful and 95% are not.
Some people say it’s 97% and 3%. Some people say it’s 1% and 99%, either way, is that a small percentage, yes or no? Yes. A very small percentage. So the hint is, whatever you observe that what the majority of the people do and how they operate and how they think if you adapt the way they think and behave, what are you gonna get? Same result. Same stuff. So one thing you could get out of this. If nothing else is, look at what other people are doing and then you do the Opposite. – Opposite. Easier said than done. Easier said than done, okay. Success, at the end of days, is not about this positive thinking and visualize and manifestation.
Success ultimately, fundamentally, it’s about behavior. What’s the key? Behavior, okay. Not attitude, not your upbringing, not your education, not your skill, not luck, not even your capital. You could get all those things. If a person behaves in a way, behaves in a way that is congruent, what’s the word? With the goals she’s trying to achieve, she can not achieve them. If you’re behaving in a way that’s incongruent with your goals, you cannot achieve them. Just like, if I wanna lose weight, yet I go to McDonald’s three times a day, am I gonna lose weight? No.
If I drink one liter of soda every day, am I gonna lose weight? No, in spite of how bad I want it. Because my behavior is not congruent with where I wanna go. Am I making sense? Yes. – Okay. So Lookism, most businessmen are far too focused on trying to manage their businesses better rather than managing themselves better. Write this down. Most businessmen are far too focused on trying to manage their businesses better rather than managing themselves better.
What I always like to do is I manage myself. I want to be better, myself. I want to become a more effective leader, I want to become a better marketer. I want to become a better strategist. If I improve, my business what? Improves. – Improves. I focus on managing me because that’s the only thing I can control, me. 10 times your finances, your business, your marketing, your life.
