Note From the Founders

The Secret to Being Happy, Wealthy & Free…REALLY

I can remember the days (it wasn’t too long ago) when I would sit at my desk so scared to fail…so scared to not meet my own expectations…that I would work around-the-clock focusing on one thing and one thing only: being successful.

I was ambitious, determined, and willing to do whatever it took to reach massive success.

Wow was I wrong! But I wasn’t alone.  In fact, many driven people today are doing just what I’ve explained above to “get ahead” and improve their lives. And it’s not surprising.  This is what students are taught in today’s universities.  It’s the way most corporations groom their “best” people to be. I wish it wasn’t so but it’s true! Yet there is a better way…

A way that might seem counterintuitive to what most of us have learned over the years, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.  In fact, it’s just the opposite.  It’s really, really good.

This “new way” was taught to me by those people I’ve met in life who are the most successful, seem to be the most free, and most importantly, are the happiest.

So what’s their big secret?  It’s simple.

The secret is to approach every situation in life FIRST with the question “How can I provide value.” Seriously.  Don’t shrug this off!  It’s bigger than you realize.

So what’s value? Value is the fulfillment of a void or need in someone’s life. Many times this is a void or need that the person doesn’t even know they have! It doesn’t matter.  By eliminating that void, by fulfilling that need, you’re making that persons life better.  And remember, everything in life (even in this digital age) is about people. They’re all that matter.

For instance, next time you approach a business obstacle, don’t think “How can I work harder? How can I make more money? How can I…”  Don’t think about you! Think about your customer. Think about how you can provide them with a more valuable product or a more valuable service. You’ll be amazed at the results JUST from this change in mindset alone. The cash will come pouring in. Money Follows Value.

What about your relationships?  Do they work the same way?   You betcha!  Next time you meet someone, don’t think “what can this person do for me” but rather “how can I provide value for this person.”  If this relationship is in business, you’ll be amazed at how valuable that relationship turns out to be.  If this relationship is in your home (i.e. with your husband or wife), you’ll be amazed at how much more enjoyable and understanding your spouse will become.  If this relationship is a friendship, you’ll be amazed at how much deeper and fulfilling of a bond you’ll develop.   Happiness Follows Value.

In fact, I’ll take that a step further.

In my opinion… The definition of “happiness” is to “provide more value in life than you take away.”

Contemplate this a bit and let me know your thoughts.  I’ve read about the topic of happiness and contemplated its definition extensively, and to me, this is its most accurate definition.

Since this is already longer than I anticipated, I’m going to stop writing for a while.

But… NEXT WEEK I’m going to continue this discussion with:

1. Examples of Value-Providers

2. Explanation of Why this Works

3. Tips to Put Yourself into a Value-Providing Mindset

Have a phenomenal, productive, happy, and massively value-providing rest of your week!

Best in health (and value),

Crush It Quote of the Week:

I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don’t harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you’re never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.

~Zig Ziglar


Why this quote is important

This quote sums up the essence of achievement.  No achievement, in any sense, can be accomplished without first focusing on a specific target.  Whether you want to get your business up and running, get in shape, or become a better parent – nothing will be accomplished until you focus on your target and dive in head first.  It is guaranteed, 100% of the time, the person who won’t take the first step towards their goal, will not take the second. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Entrepreneurship Tip of the Week:

7 Ways To Develop Customers For Life

1. Never Duck a Phone Call – Nobody likes to be ignored or avoided, so if you are available just take the call.  Your customers will appreciate it.

2. Send Customers to Your Competitor
– Sounds crazy, huh? Well it’s not crazy, and it is actually good business.  If you have treated your customers well, and provided enough value for them – they will stay with you.

3. Remember Their Family – This is simple, when you are working with your customers make sure to remember their families.  Ask how your customer’s spouse and children are, and if you send a note – include the names of family members as well.

4. Write Effective Thank You Notes – This doesn’t apply only to business.  Never underestimate the power of a personalized note or gift.

5. Give More Than They Expect – If you promise something in your pitch, make sure to deliver more than promisedProvide value. Customers will be so impressed they will keep coming back, and they will tell their friends.

6. Keep Your Business Transparent and Open – Eliminate any practices that could be considered shady.  Forget the excuses if you mess up, just be honest – it always pays off in the end.

7. Give Back in Whatever Ways You Can – At the end of the day, if you are successful you should give back.  Successful people give back to those around them, whether it is your customers, friends, or whoever – it helps to give back and you will be rewarding not only in karma, but in business. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mind Bending Video of the Week

Tony Robbins makes 30 million dollars a year.  Why? Because he provides massive amounts of value to his followers.  He knows how to talk with people and unlock what it is that drives them to do-what-they-do.  Most people think of him as someone who gets you riled up and motivated, but he will tell you differently.  He says he is a why guy.  He tries to figure out why people are motivated, and then helps them capitalize on their inherent motivation.  His TED talk is compelling, and covers a wide range of topics (including a cliff hanger that makes you want to scream at the computer screen!) and will leave you ready to take the next step in life and business.
