Doing Your Best Doesn’t Work

Doing Your Best Doesn’t Work
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the idea that the doing your best doesn’t work. John discusses that when he was 40 years old, he adopted the strategy for success of just doing his best. That’s all he controlled. So that’s what he focused on. Doing his best. But that didn’t produce big results. Then he got enlightened in his 50s. He understood fundamentally how success works. It comes down to your daily actions. And if you don’t know the proper daily actions to take, even though you might be doing your best, you won’t have big success. What John learned is that the key to being successful is creating immense clarity about your life. Defining exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. By defining that, then you see the right actions you take. It becomes obvious. And then you feed that clarity to yourself every day. That impacts your daily actions. And your upgraded daily actions then creates the life you want.The point of all that is that just doing your best may not have you doing the right actions, despite your best intentions. John also talks about in his 30s and 40s he was only playing at 5% of his potential. He didn’t have a high level of control over himself. In his 50s he did from figuring out the full secret of think and grow Rich. And lastly John talks about how in his 50s doing his best came down to five things. Effort, focusing on what moves the needle, tuning into reality, consistently growing every week, and understanding how the human mind works. In John’s 30s and 40s, he only knew to give effort. To get up at 5:30 AM each day and work hard. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing. After spending 20 years as an entrepreneur, John was 50 years old but wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. To rectify that, he decided to find the “top book in the world” on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That Book is Think & Grow Rich. The book says there’s a SECRET for success, but the author only gives you half the secret. John figured out the full secret and a 12 minute a day technique to apply it.When John applied his 12 minute a day technique to his life, he saw his yearly income go to over $5 million a year, after 20 years of $200k - 300k per year. The 25 times increase happened because John LEVERAGED himself by applying science to his life.His daily technique works because it focuses you ONLY on what moves the needle, triples your discipline, and consistently generates new business ideas every week. This happens because of 3 key aspects of the leveraging process.John’s technique was profiled on the cover of Time Magazine. He teaches it at the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business, which is one the TOP 5 business schools in the country.

Wisdom Transfer Dilemma

Wisdom Transfer Dilemma
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the challenge of taking wisdom and sharing it with other people. John talks about a statue that sits in his den. It has three men that are climbing. The lowest guy is struggling, the middle guy is going sideways, and the third guy is going straight up. When John looks at that statue each morning, he thinks about his own life. The guy at the lowest level was was John in his 30s. The guy going sideways was John in his 40s. And the guy going straight up John in his 50s. John sees that when he started going straight up in his 50s, he saw and understood things he never understood before. He gained wisdom from the book Think and Grow Rich. He was just operating on a higher level. He understood how the human mind worked, and that was the difference Kelly talks about how she has learned from other people as well. But so often people in their 30s and 40s don’t think they have that much to learn. So they’re not receptive to the wisdom of others. But John points out that oftentimes the wisdom is something profoundly simple. It’s not like you’re learning to split the atom. Like for John learning that 95% of his daily actions was unconscious was critical. Learning how the human mind works. Ultimately he learned how to work smarter not harder.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Most People Are Re-Creating The Past-Joe Dispenza

Most People Are Re-Creating The Past-Joe Dispenza
In this episode John and Kelly discuss an idea that comes from Joe Dispenza. He says that when we wake up each morning, we are oriented to our recent past. To our familiar past. So when our eyes open each morning, three things are going on. First we’re innately wired for survival. Which causes us to be fear-based and reactive. Secondly, 95% of our daily thoughts and actions are unconscious. And third, and this is what Joe Dispenza adds to the equation, we are oriented to the recent past. So the effect is when you open your eyes each morning, you’re fear-based and reactive. With the vast majority of your thoughts being fear-based, with 95% of them being unconscious. And you’re thinking about the recent past. Your problems and may be little things that hurt you over the last few days. That then produces feelings. And those feelings create more negative thoughts. It’s a spiraling negative loop that causes you to continually re-create the past. Thoughts are the language of the mind and feelings are the language of the body. So when you get in this negative loop to continually re-create the past, nothing is pulling you forward. That’s why the think it be it 12 minute a day methodology is so powerful. Where you articulate the succinct articulation of your desired life. Exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish and precisely how you can achieve your clearly defined goals. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Success Is Something You Attract, Not Chase (Encore)
In this episode, John and Kelly talk about the concept that success is something you attract, rather than something you chase. By being the type of person that does attract success. As Kelly points out, BE then DO. John makes the analogy of someone trying to catch a butterfly. It’s very elusive. Just like success. But if you become the person that you need to be in order to be successful, you will attract success. Kelly talked about the idea of envisioning the best version of yourself 10 years from now. And envisioning what you would have accomplished. Then seeing the type of person you would need to be in order to attain that level of success. It’s a great analogy. Putting yourself in a third-party position to see the person you need to be in order to attract the success you want is a fundamental concept. In this podcast John also points out the power of the think it be it method. Your defining exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you can achieve your clearly defined goals. Then you feed that to yourself every day using the think it be it template. Since 95% of a person’s daily thoughts and actions are unconscious, when you feed that to your subconscious mind that’s who you actually become. Your subconscious mind makes you into what you’re feeding it. Powerfully simple. The science of leveraging yourself.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

We All Have A Big Problem We Must Overcome: We Are wired For Survival Not Success
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the idea that we all have a problem in life that we must overcome. We are all innately wired for survival, not success. And here’s the impact of being wired for survival. It causes 70% of our thoughts to be fear-based. We’re reactive rather than proactive on our important agenda. So think about that. If you’re innately wired to be fear-based and reactive, that’s exactly the opposite of how you need to be in order to be productive creative and happy. And to say that another way, you’re wired for failure. During the discussion Kelly talks about social media. And how it puts being wired for survival on steroids. Social media is driven on comparison and fear. During the discussion Kelly and John talk about the fact that the input you have coming in your head determines the quality of your life. So if you’re spending too much time on social media, that has a negative impact on your life. John also points out that in working with people he often sees that people say they feel like they are playing the game of life that 10% to 20% of their potential. And John connects the dots. Your daily actions determine your success in each area of your life. And John says that 95% of a person’s thoughts and actions are unconscious. So if you’re not controlling your unconscious daily thoughts and actions, of course you’re playing the game of life it 10% – 20% of your potential. And you fix all this by influencing those unconscious daily thoughts and actions. By feeding the succinct articulation of your life yourself each day. Exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re can achieve your clearly defined goals. Then the right actions happen automatically without thinking.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Personal Responsibility
Mar 28 2024
Personal Responsibility
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss personal responsibility. To launch into this topic, John plays a five minute presentation by Darren Hardy. After the clip plays, John and Kelly unpack what we learned. The first thing we learn is that you created the life you have. Whatever you have in your life, both good and bad, you created it. The second thing we learned is that cornerstone of personal responsibility is never being a victim. Eliminating victimhood. They also talk about the idea of looking at what you are tolerating in your life. That can be as bad as bad choices. John and Kelly also talk about the most precious gift we have. Controlling your attention. Because what you give your attention to determines the input that comes in your head. And that input determines your thoughts, which determines your actions, which ultimately determines your success in each area of your life. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Why Are Only 2% Of People Driven
Mar 21 2024
Why Are Only 2% Of People Driven
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the fact that only 2% of people are driven. John explains that he first discovered this about five years ago. He decided to go to the top expert in the world on success and share think it be it with him or her. As it turns out, John decided that Darren Hardy was the top expert in the world on success. So after he writes a big check and goes out to California, John meets with Darren. Shows him the think it be it template and explains the methodology. And after Darren looked at it very closely he says “this is good”. But Darren says that people are not going to spend 12 minutes a day on this. John couldn’t believe it. John goes how can that be? It 25X my income, Time Magazine did a cover story on the science behind this, and you’re applying the central concept of the top book in the world on success to your life. What you mean that they won’t spend 12 minutes a day on this? Darren says John, you’re new to the success business. The dirty little secret is that most people won’t do anything to impact their success. Because more success is merely a preference. Merely a preference. Darren said you have to only show this to the 2% of people where more success is a necessity. The people that are truly driven. John said that was so eye-opening. And over the subsequent years, what Darren said has proven to be so true. Kelly mentioned that the fact that only 2% of people are driven has a lot to do with self-worth. She’s reading a new book and if people don’t have a strong self-worth, they won’t be driven. John also talks about how his friend and recent student of think it be it Steve Pendergrast is now teaching a group of his own the methodology of think it be it. And he related the story to John that one of the students told him that the reason he didn’t have his homework assignment done is because he was too busy. Steve confronts his student on that. What would be more important than taking your own life to a new level. To improving your life. What’s more important than that. Well the Takeaway is this person he was talking to is not driven. So a higher level of success is merely a preference to him.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the fact that we live in an absence of truth world. There are no facts today. Everything is opinions. And the effect of that is it is hard to move forward in resolving important issues. John gives the example of rising crime. So how do we solve the problem. When you dig into the facts, you discover that the vast majority of crime is committed by just a few repeat offenders. Well logically, if that is true, the solution is essentially to lock ‘em up and throw away the key. But in this country with the progressive left, there is this belief that incarcerating people is racist because more people of color are incarcerated. Therefore they let repeat offenders out with no bail. And that’s what striving crime in many places today. Well that type of boneheaded thinking reflects lack of understanding the facts. Another example is the covid vaccine. In the United States we lost about 1 million people from Covid. In looking at the facts, millions of people were saved from the vaccine. In fact the two developers of the covid vaccine won the Nobel Prize last year for it. How do we move forward regarding vaccines in the future if we can’t acknowledge the truth about the Covid vaccine. Then the third example. John’s favorite. The big lie that Trump promotes that the last presidential election was stolen from him. Yet there’s not a scintilla of evidence to support that. And John sees that when he gets in discussions with his friends that believe the election was stolen, which is what 60% of Republicans believe, nothing can get resolved because they ignore the facts. Then we switch to a lighter topic. John talks about five keywords or phrases that are often said in a good romantic relationship. Here are the five phrases. Thank you, I’m sorry and I apologize, I like you, I’m committed to you, help me understand. If you say these phrases often in your relationship, you’ve got a great romantic relationship. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing. After spending 20 years as an entrepreneur, John was 50 years old but wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. To rectify that, he decided to find the “top book in the world” on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That Book is Think & Grow Rich. The book says there’s a SECRET for success, but the author only gives you half the secret. John figured out the full secret and a 12 minute a day technique to apply it.When John applied his 12 minute a day technique to his life, he saw his yearly income go to over $5 million a year, after 20 years of $200k - 300k per year. The 25 times increase happened because John LEVERAGED himself by applying science to his life.His daily technique works because it focuses you ONLY on what moves the needle, triples your discipline, and consistently generates new business ideas every week. This happens because of 3 key aspects of the leveraging process.John’s technique was profiled on the cover of Time Magazine.

You Get In Life What You Expect

You Get In Life What You Expect
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss that you get in life is what you create. But what drives the creative process? It’s what we expect. Expectations manifest themselves. So let’s think about this a little deeper. If expectations manifest themselves, what drives our expectations? It’s our thoughts. And our thoughts are dictated by the input we have coming in. Garbage in, garbage out. Good in, good out. John plays a two minute presentation by Darren Hardy about this.After the presentation, John and Kelly relate it to the think it be it methodology. Your expectations manifest themselves. So it’s important to have clarity about your expectations. And that’s what the think it be it 12 minute day methodology does. By feeding the succinct articulation of your life, exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals, that’s the ultimate in defining your expectations. And what you expect is what ends up showing up in your life. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Seek To Understand Instead Of Trying To Be Understood (Encore)
In this episode, John and Kelly talk about the idea of seeking to understand before you try to be understood. John mentions that this is one of the seven habits of highly successful people. He recently read that book again and this was the habit that really caught his attention. Kelly and John talk about how innately we don’t like people who think differently than we do. That happens at a subconscious level. But of course people don’t think like we do. Everyone is simply a reflection of three things. Their genetics, what has come into their consciousness to this point in their life, and whether they have estrogen or testosterone flowing through their veins. Everyone is unique. To expect that people will think like you do doesn’t make sense. And that’s why it makes so much sense to apply this idea of seeking to understand before trying to be understood. Kelly talks about how she applies this to her team in her business. John talks about how he’s been trying to improve his skills in this regard with his wife Ginger. At the end John talks about how to apply this idea using Think It Be It’s 12 minute a day technique.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Growth (Encore)
In this episode, John and Kelly talk about growing intellectually. And how important it is to make your personal growth both consistent (every week) as well as strategic relative to what you want to accomplish. Kelly describes a great system she’s created for herself. Every Sunday she defines the things she’s going to listen to during the week. Listening to the content primarily when she’s exercising. And it’s always strategic relative to what you want to accomplish. As an example, she wanted to get government contracts for her recruitment business. So she listened to content on government contracts. Very strategic. John talks about when he was 50 years old he realized that he wasn’t growing intellectually. He was too busy for personal growth. Big mistake. He fixed it with the system he created. And it made him a conduit of learning. With the wisdom of experts coming into his head every week. At the end John talks about how he articulates his personal growth plan in his life GPS template that he reads each day.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

What Is Your Superpower – Everyone Has One

What Is Your Superpower – Everyone Has One
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the fact that everyone has a superpower. And there’s power in knowing what it is and playing into it. Kelly’s superpower is being a people person. Being able to make people feel heard and recognized. Having empathy. John goes on to say that his superpower is being able to take the complex and make it simple. John discovered this when he was 27 years old working as a CPA. And he saw that talent playing out throughout his life. When he launched into being an entrepreneur at 30, he was able to prepare the investment brochure in a way that made the complex simple. So investors would ride a check to fund his real estate development. Then when he got into the reverse mortgage business at 50, he made reverse mortgages simple. And now in the success business, John makes success simple. John then talks about how so often people don’t understand how profound it is that 95% of a person’s daily thoughts and actions are unconscious. John and Kelly discuss the ramifications. During this podcast John also talks about eight different superpowers that people can choose from, in order to give them some perspective as to what the potential superpowers are. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Listening To Your Visualization Rather Than Reading It

Listening To Your Visualization Rather Than Reading It
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss an innovation to the think it be it methodology. You can listen to your daily visualization rather than read it. John explains that he’s been reading his visualization for like 20 years. But he is so enamored now with being able to listen to it instead. Every way after he wakes up , John puts on his headphones and then presses a button in the think it be it app. He then closes his eyes and listens to his visualization. John and Kelly discuss how listening influences the subconscious mind slightly different than reading. But it’s still repetition, which is the only stimulus that influences the subconscious mind. In this episode John and Kelly talk about what we say at the start of this podcast. Once we learned one thing, our lives were never the same. That one thing is that 95% of our daily thoughts and actions are unconscious. The more you think about this, the more profound you see that it is. Essentially your subconscious mind controls your life. Because your daily actions determine your success. So let’s connect the dots. Your thoughts determine your actions and your actions determine your success in each area of your life. The fact that 95% of your thoughts are unconscious is the opportunity. If your thoughts were conscious, there would be no way you could control your thoughts. But by virtue of them being unconscious, all you have to do is get into the mechanism that is generating your thoughts. The subconscious mind. And once you influence the subconscious mind, proactively, your life is never the same. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

How Do You Answer “How Are You Doing”? (Encore)
In this episode, John and Kelly talk about how you answer the daily question “how are you doing “. It has a huge impact on how you influence others as well as how you influence yourself. Kelly says that when she is asked that question, her standard response is “EXCELLENT”. For John, he answers “living the dream”. Regarding influencing yourself with your answer, John says it sets the tone for your inner world and how you view your life. John also points out that life is a state of mind. So his reply to this daily question is really important. And it’s way better to have a unique reply other than “FINE” as most people answer. Kelly then explains the powerful impact your answer has on other people. It’s truly an exchange of energy. And when you answer in a nontraditional way with energy, it has a very positive effect on other people. John also points out that what you say out loud has 10 times the impact of what you think. And this is based on a Harvard study.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

The Opportunity: 95% Of Your Thoughts Are Unconscious
Jan 18 2024
The Opportunity: 95% Of Your Thoughts Are Unconscious
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the concept that 95% of your thoughts are unconscious. And that is actually a huge opportunity. Your success in life as well as your enjoyment of life comes down to the thoughts that are going on in your head most the time. But why is that. Why do your thoughts determine your success. It’s because your thoughts determine each action. And your actions create success in your career, in your marriage, and in controlling your health. But here’s the opportunity. 95% of your daily thoughts are unconscious. And that’s actually a good thing. Because if they were conscious, you’d have to spend all your time consciously trying to control your thoughts. You wouldn’t have time for anything else. But the fact that they are UNCONSCIOUS is the opportunity. To control your thoughts you simply have to influence the mechanism that is generating your thoughts. Your subconscious mind, and your autopilot. You do that by repetition. Feeding to yourself each morning the succinct articulation of your life. Exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. Takes 12 minutes a day. If you do that, you gain control of your thoughts and your success in life. As to credibility, you’re applying the central concept of the top book in the world on success to your life. Think and grow Rich.  After John and Kelly cover all this, then they get into showing the audience examples of the different thoughts one has control of. Relative to their career, to their romantic relationship, to controlling their health. The take away is the fact that 95% your thoughts are unconscious is truly the opportunity for controlling your thoughts. By simply influencing the mechanism that is generating your thoughts, your subconscious mind. And you do that through repetition .About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

Are You In The 2%?
Jan 11 2024
Are You In The 2%?
In this episode, John and Kelly discuss the concept of the 2% versus the 98%. In John’s opinion, 98% of people are sheep. They follow the crowd. And that’s what creates the average life. Which isn’t pretty today in the United States. John gives the example of think it be it being only for the 2%. Because only 2% of people consider more success a necessity rather than merely a preference. Most people want to be more successful but it’s merely a preference. They won’t do the things required to actually be more successful. It also comes down to embracing playing the game life at your full potential. Something only 2% of people aspire to do. Kelly explains that so much of it comes down to your identity. Who you see yourself being. Appreciating that success is something you attract by the attributes you create in yourself. And John points out that that is the essence of the think it be it methodology. By getting clarity on the attributes that you want and feeding those attributes to yourself each day, that’s who you actually become. Think it be it gives you the ability to create the life you want. About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing.

What It Means To Do Your Best (Encore)
In this episode, John and Kelly talk about what it means to do your best. John explains that in his 40s, doing his best meant getting up it 5:30 AM. When he got into his 50s, he expanded his vision of doing his best. It was three things. Effort – getting up at 5:30 AM. Second, focus on what moves the needle. And then third, personal growth. With a system. And making sure the growth was consistent and strategic relative to what he wanted to accomplish.Kelly talks about what doing her best means to her. She said it’s showing up as the best version of yourself. Always doing the right thing. John then mentioned that in the last year or so he’s added two more things to his prior list of three things regarding doing his best. The adds were tuning into reality and being self-aware. John and Kelly both talked about the value of getting perspective. Doing so by setting aside time to think two times a week. Deep think using the technique they’ve developed. They also explain the one thing that once they learned it, both their lives were changed. Realizing that their daily actions determine their success yet they don’t control their daily actions. Only their intentions. But you can control your daily actions by rewiring your autopilot. That’s what their 12 minute day technique is all about. To wrap up, John and Kelly gave listeners how to do their best using their 12 minute day technique or the lite version of how to influence the subconscious mind. Using reminders.About the Hosts:John MitchellJohn’s story is pretty amazing. After spending 20 years as an entrepreneur, John was 50 years old but wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. To rectify that, he decided to find the “top book in the world” on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That Book is Think & Grow Rich. The book says there’s a SECRET for success, but the author only gives you half the secret. John figured out the full secret and a 12 minute a day technique to apply it.When John applied his 12 minute a day technique to his life, he saw his yearly income go to over $5 million a year, after 20 years of $200k - 300k per year. The 25 times increase happened because John LEVERAGED himself by applying science to his life.His daily technique works because it focuses you ONLY on what moves the needle, triples your discipline, and consistently generates new business ideas every week.
