“If you’re not a risk taker, you should get the hell out of business.”
~ Ray Kroc, McDonald’s founder
One of my business mentors is a guy called Charlie Munger. He’s Warren Buffett‘s business partner, a fellow billionaire, and one of the smartest people on the planet.
A cornerstone to his success has been looking for problems before they become problems and doing everything he can to avoid them.
His exact words: “Invert, always invert: Turn a situation or problem upside down. Look at it backward. What happens if all our plans go wrong? Where don’t we want to go, and how do you get there?
Instead of looking for success, make a list of how to fail instead – through sloth, envy, resentment, self-pity, entitlement, all the mental habits of self-defeat. Avoid these qualities and you will succeed.
Tell me where I’m going to die, that is, so I don’t go there.”
Most of the problems you’ll face in business will be internal problems.
I forget who said this, but someone once told me most businesses don’t die due to starvation – they die due to indigestion.
They make unforced errors – like mismanaging cashflow. Or hiring the wrong person. Or ignoring a customer complaint, which turns into a legal issue. Or having a lagging fulfilment process that can’t keep up with sales, etc.
All of these challenges can suck up cash very fast. And there’s a strange habit of them all showing up at once, at the most inconvenient times. This is why making predictions about what could go wrong, and then proactively fixing them is so important.

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
– Colin Powell
The difference between being ‘Well-Off vs. ‘Ultra-Wealthy’ is their … FOCUS!!!
There was a speaker that spoke on wealth. Who unfortunately is no longer with us. He said, “that you need TWO Businesses.”
Your PRIMARY Business, the one you’re likely putting all your focus on right now. And then your money management business.
Most people put 95% of their energy into their primary business.
If they want to make more money, they trade more time for money in their given profession. The accountant takes on more clients. The shop owner extends their trading hours. The mechanic fixes more cars.
They only put 5% of their energy into their 2nd business that manages their wealth. Which is often fairly PASSIVE. So you can even make money while you sleep!
For ultra wealthy people, it’s the other way around. 95% of their energy goes into their money management business – picking stocks, investing in real estate and checking their investments.
Only 5% of their energy goes towards their primary line of work. Master the same concept as the ultra wealthy and you’ll escape the hamster wheel sooner than you might expect.

We are all faced with increasing pressure to makewell-judged decisions about every aspect of our lives.
Make the correct choice and you can give yourself a pat on the back. But make a bad decision and you can be left with feelings of regret, punishing yourself for picking an inferior option without the benefit of hindsight.
Your decision-making style will likely fit into one of two categories: Maximizer or Satisficer. I touched on these in my last article: ‘Good Enough is Good Enough.’
You might ask what’s the difference between the two decision-making styles. I have broken it down for you…
Satisficer Vs. Maximizer
Maximizer – Yearns for Perfection.
They task themselves with making the most informed, intelligent decisions by weighing all the choices. They can often suffer under the pressure of high self-expectations.
High achievers fall into the peculiar trap of getting mentally caught up in what they haven’t done. There’s always something else to be working on because it feels like, the more you do, the more you gain an edge. Setting unachievable goals for ourselves may itself impede our ultimate goal when making choices – making a choice that we will be satisfied with.
By focusing too hard on maximizing your productivity and choices can come at an ultimate cost to your time, health, and happiness. Maximizers also prone to experiencing a sense of ‘buyer’s remorse’ following a decision, doubting whether it was correct, and envisaging how life would have been had they chosen a different path.
Simon believed that when satisficers are presented with a decision to make, they will consider what they want to gain or preserve from a situation, then evaluate their options to find the solution that meets their requirements.
When choosing a car to purchase a satisficer will consider the use of the vehicle (e.g. long commute to work), fuel efficiency, and would like the seats to be heated. When given multiple choices they will often choose the one that meets the initial decision-making criteria, without the extra lavish additional expenses (e.g. spacious interior that costs at little more).
Where maximizers might be led astray by unnecessary gimmicks and ostentation, these do not tempt a satisficer.
What approach do you take when tasked to make a decision? Test your decision-making approach – answer the quiz questions below!
QUIZ: Are You a Maximizer, or a Satisficer?
This quiz was developed by Barry Schwartz, Swarthmore College psychology professor as a way to determine your decision-making style. It may vary depending on what’s at stake.
For each statement, score yourself on a scale of 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree). The higher your score, the more of a maximizer you are.
1. No matter how satisfied I am with my job, it’s only right for me to be on the lookout for better opportunities. 2. When I am in the car listening to the radio, I often check other stations to see if something better is playing, even if I am relatively satisfied with what I’m listening to. 3. When I watch ‘TV, I channel surf, often scanning through the available options even while attempting to watch one Program. 4. I treat relationships like clothing: I expect to try a lot on before finding the perfect fit. 5. I often find it difficult to stop for a gift for a friend. 6. Renting videos is really difficult. I’m always struggling to pick the best one. 7. When shopping, I have a hard time finding clothing that I really love. 8. I’m a big fan of lists that attempt to rank things (the best movies, the best singers, the best athletes, the best novels, etc). 9. I find that writing is very difficult, even if it, just writing a letter to a friend, because of it, so hard to word things just right I often do several drafts of even simple things. 10. I never settle for second best. 11. Whenever I’m faced with a choice, I try to imagine what all the other possibilities are, even ones that aren’t present at the moment 12. I often fantasize about living in ways that are Quite different from my actual life. 13. No matter what I do, I have the highest standards for myself.
If your score is over 65, you tend to maximize. If your score is below 40, you are more of a satisficer. Schwartz says the test was given to thousands of people and the high score was 75.

Satisficer Vs. Maximizer
The conventional wisdom is that to be successful, you have to be really hungry for it, never content with mere sufficiency and outdoing everyone else. Surprisingly, aiming for good enough is a better approach.
This change in mindset took me from a struggling entrepreneur to a success…
A big turning point for me was when I started embracing the concept of, ‘Good enough, is good enough.’ It means you focus on launching things that bring in the money fast, and you don’t worry about getting every little detail 100% perfect.
It doesn’t mean you don’t care about quality. You do. It just means that you sacrifice a little bit of quality which no one really cares about, for the sake of speed of execution.
Let’s say a project is going to take you 10 days to get done to a 100% perfection level.
After 1 day of working on your project, you’ve got your project to a 20% perfection level. After 3 days, you’re at a 45% perfection level. After 5 days, you’re at a 70% perfection level.
And after 6 days, you’re at a 80% perfection level, etc. These numbers aren’t an exact science, but you get the point. The greatest increases in completing something to perfection happen in the early stages.
In the final stages, each incremental % of completed becomes more insignificant. If you take the 10 full days, then yes, you might be able to make the project 100% perfect.
But rather than spending those final few days working on things that most people won’t even notice or pay extra for, your time is better spent getting something to a say, 75 – 80% perfection level.
And then you move on to working an other projects. Go for speed over perfection.
Keep in mind if something ends up being a big hit, that you can come back and perfect it, if you want. A lot of what you launch likely won’t be a big hit, so by working the way I describe above, you get through the duds faster and uncover the winners.
It all comes down to whether you’re a maximizer or a satisficer.
A maximizer yearns for perfection — making the best decision after weighing all the choices.
That’s why high achievers fall into the peculiar trap of getting mentally caught up in what they haven’t done. There’s always something else to be working on because it feels like, the more you do, the more you gain an edge.
While a satisficer goes for “good enough.” This doesn’t mean you have to settle for lower standards.
I trained myself to become a satisficer. I’m now all about speed and execution first, and then working out the details later. Once I adopted this this mindset, I finally started experience success in my life and business.
If you struggle to get things done, then maybe it’s because you’re focussed on perfection rather than fast execution. I’m going to suggest you change that.

We get it—when something’s new it’s hard to be all in especially right off the bat.
Chances are you’ve been burned before—burned by a Business Opportunity, an Investment, a Partner or something—and that’s made you more than a little gun shy.
So what do you do?
You dip your toe in the water.You hem and haw. And you do so much due diligence that you’re paralyzed by it all—the ultimate paralysis by analysis.
You talk to everyone. You weigh the pros and cons over and over again. And, while you’re technically “doing something,” but are you really? Because while there’s some movement, it’s not enough to move the needle—at least not in any discernible way.
When people land there, the outcome is almost always the same.
They feel like it doesn’t work or doesn’t work for them. They’ve tried, they’ll explain, and they didn’t see any results—it’s a seam, they’re a failure or it’s “too much” right now.
Whatever the excuse is, it’s enough for them to hang up their hat and check the box. They tried and, apparently, that’s good enough. Here’s the thing: it’s not.
If you hem and haw long enough, someone else will do it first. In any business, you’re in or you’re out.
There’s no in between, there’s no testing the waters and there’s no small commitment. You want this or you don’t. You’re invested or you’re not. You’re building a business or you’re considering taking up a hobby.
That’s IT. Period.
We’re tired of people telling us that this traffic-driving method didn’t work or that business in a box or the sales funnel didn’t produce results. Because guess what?
It did for countless other Consultants and Entrepreneurs myself included. They didn’t Work for you because you didn’t try. You did the bare minimum so you could check box.
Then you completely disengage and hope that by some miracle of miracles, the pieces will fall into place. When they don’t, you blame everything and everyone—except yourself.
Get in or get out, but don’t try to walk the line.
If you try to play in the space in between, you’ll never excel and you’ll never get a true read on what works and what doesn’t.
The End Result of Little to NO Action?
You’ll do nothing, really, except throw a few dollars and a little time this way or that. This, of course, isn’t building a business. But instead you are creating an endless supply of excuses. And for us, we have no time for that.
So have you done so much due diligence that you’ve been paralyzed by it all?
Let us know in the comment section below how you overcame the paralysis by analysis!

Anyway, today I want to talk to you about what you’re doing to feed your mind with the right information to maximise your chances of success in business.
At the end of the day, the main thing which separates you from the super wealthy is knowledge and the application of that knowledge.
Everything they do and have done to get where they are, can be learned.
Which biographies about successful entrepreneurs and business people are you reading right now?
If there’s one common “secret” I see over and over again in these biographies, it’s the willingness to put in hard, focused work. Everyone wants shortcuts, and there are some systems that can simplify and automate the selling process. However hard work is the real secret to success.
Look at people like Ray Kroc, who started with very little at the age of 52 when he built McDonald’s, a tremendous global corporation that’s still thriving years after his death.
And there’s Bill Gates. On the day he dropped out of college, he told his father that he wasn’t going back. His father said, “Son, you’ve just thrown your whole life away.” Of course, we all know the Bill Gates story didn’t turn out that way.
He worked his tail off, and you know the rest of the Microsoft story.
He was so focused at one point in 1981 that he called and told his mom that he wasn’t going to call or come over for his usual Sunday lunch for the next six months. Weeks would go by when he would barely leave his office and he wouldn’t even go home to shower for days.
There’s a book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne that made the rounds in the self-help circle over 10 years ago. It’s main message is that you can affirm your way to success. But the truth is, success really isn’t a secret at all.
When you read books about people who have actually turned small sums of money into huge fortunes, you’ll find out they didn’t use The Secret to make themselves the successes they are today.
They didn’t just sit around and affirm their success, chant positive things, and get their minds right. All that has its place – attitude definitely plays a big role in success, there’s no question about that – but it’s hardly the major component in business success.
The most successful people all worked hard, focused constantly on what they wanted, and practiced dramatic self-discipline and sacrifice to get where they are today.
I encourage you to read the stories of other successful people, the ones that are mostly told in biographies (don’t just read autobiographies – they’re too unreliable), and you’ll find that it took a lot of work for that success to happen. They serve as models for the rest of us.
If you want to be successful at anything… business, sports, music… you do have to devote the time, energy, and effort to what you’ve chosen. One expert said it takes 10,000 hours of dedication to master something.
But here’s the thing. If you’re going to spend that much time and energy giving yourself to an endeavor, it better be something you love. Because there’s a price that has to be paid for success in anything.
That’s reality. And that’s the real secret.
If you get into it, and it’s the right thing, what you thought was work really isn’t work after all. You end up devoting a lot of hours to it, and the payoff both in financial terms and in what you become and achieve is well worth the effort that’s involved to get there.

“The trouble is, you think you have time” ~ Buddah
How frequently have you felt like you needed a “fresh start” or to begin a “new chapter” in your life?
We’ve all been there… a major profession change, a life-changing encounter, or most generally the start of the new year.
Everything is extraordinary toward the start. We’re energized and propelled however at that point, after only half a month, that fervor begins to get decrease. Also, remaining on track gets increasingly troublesome.
Would you be able to relate? This is normal, so don’t stress in the event that you can.
Today we need to put a stop to this cycle for the last time!
Great or great?
12 Steps To Creating A Truly Happy And Fulfilled Life
1. Write Down Your Goals
Take the time to do this one very important and crucial exercise.
What do you want to accomplish in the next 30 days? Don’t just think about it or talk about it, write it down!
Studies have shown that the simple act of taking the time to write out your goals will dramatically increase the likelihood of achieving those goals!
So write, write, write!
2. Let Go Of “What Was”
It’s time to let go of the past (just leave it behind).
Let’s face it, you can’t change the past. In fact, the past doesn’t even exist anymore. The only place it exists is in your mind.
Let it go. Learn the lessons, look for the silver-linings, and be grateful for what “is” today and what will be tomorrow… It’s impossible to “receive” anything new and great when you’re holding on to the negative stuff from the past.
So, like the Disney song …
Are you holding on to any resentment, anger or regret toward someone? If so, it’s time to forgive, and again you’ve got to let it go.
The only person you hurt when you don’t forgive, is yourself.
Don’t let anyone rent space in your head.
Who knows why people do what they do or say what they say. Stop trying to analyze it and make it mean something it doesn’t. That’s just wasted energy.
Be the bigger person. Just forgive and move on.
Also sometimes, we need to forgive ourselves for something we’ve done or said. No one’s perfect. We all make mistakes and have done and said things we are not proud of – let it go (as per #2 above) and forgive yourself.
Choose to be the best person you can be, starting today.
4. Live “Outside” The Box
Don’t follow the “crowd.”
Most people are unhappy with their lives. Be courageous and follow the path to your dream life (not your parents’, friends, or even society’s dream life).
This is YOUR LIFE. YOU are the one at the steering wheel of your life. Unless you allow them to be – DONT.
If you’re really hating your journey, then maybe it’s time to make some changes in your life and/or your goals (see #1).
6. Fail Forward
Most people are afraid to try something new because they are afraid to fail. Remember, the most successful people on this planet failed way more than the “average” person. In fact, if you ask any super successful person, they’ll tell you how they failed A LOT!
Why did they become successful? Because, they never gave up.
Don’t ever let the fear of “failure” get in the way of living your dreams. If you fail, get back on that horse, brush yourself off and learn the lessons you need to learn.
Then adjust your path and move forward… always move forward.
7. Eat Healthy & Be Active
You only have this one body. Remember, you can’t trade it in for a new one. So treat it well…
What you do to your body today has a huge impact on how long you live and the quality of life you will lead in the future.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start now.
8. Be The Most Positive Person You Know
The words you use when you communicate with others reflects your thoughts on the inside.
Like Buddha said “What you think you become.”
So don’t get caught up in negative conversations or gossip with others.
In fact, stay away from negative people altogether.
As they do not elevate you or your life but are “energy drainers.”. Remember, negativity is contagious and toxic . It will be difficult to manifest great things in your life being exposed to that negative energy.
Like Oprah said, “Be responsible for the energy you bring into a room.”
Make it a priority that you will only hang out with great, positive and loving people. Sometimes it’s hard to find those people in your immediate social surroundings, if that’s the case, step “outside the box” and go find them.
You can do that by joining a fun and positive “meetup” group that focuses on “inspiration” or on a topic that revolves around living your life positively.
It’s vital that you surround yourself with positive, highly evolved, loving people who elevate you.
10. Love More
Make it a priority to always come from a place of love.
Whether you are standing in the grocery line, stuck in traffic, or having a conversation with a co-worker, family member or a friend, coming from this love “state” not only affects how you feel, it affects how others feel around you too.
How do you do that? Simply ask yourself “If I were coming from a place of love right now, how would I act?” and then do that.
Sometimes it can simply be acknowledging another person with a big genuine smile, giving a compliment or just refraining from getting into a confrontation when you’re placed in a negative situation.
11. Go Within & Get Really Connected To “Source” (or the God of your understanding)
Simply be still, be present and go within.
Meditation is a phenomenal way to do that. There’s no better way to elevate your vibration, feel true inner peace and get the answers, solutions and guidance you are looking for.
AND last but not least…
12. Focus On What’s Important
Sometimes we get so consumed on the little things or we are so focused on achieving a specific goal, that we neglect the bigger and more important things in our life. Often, we don’t realize that — until it’s too late.
So what’s important?
RELATIONSHIPS – that is the most important “thing” in our lives. Don’t neglect, ignore, or dismiss the people who mean the most to you.
They won’t always be there. Keep Connected!
Remember, life is short. Don’t find out the hard way to learn this lesson, like many people do.
We all go through tough times in our lives. Life is full of its ups and downs. For some of us, those down’s last a really long time.
For us, our health was bad and Nicky was out of work. But that time period (2015-2017) forced Nicky to learn how to bounce back and make a comeback in my life.
And now it’s been an amazing in the past year, where we’ve worked to help people to bounce from any setbacks, obstacles or challenges when it comes to their businesses.
