People approach me all the time and say: “you have it made, Siebold. You get paid to give speeches, appear on TV, radio, in magazines and newspapers around the world. What a life!” And the truth is, they’re right! But the fact is that I didn’t make it because I’m smart. I made it because I had a mentor. A world-class mentor. Most successful speakers had mentors, and chances are if you’re going to make it big in this business, you’ll need a mentor, too. If you can see yourself speaking, writing and being interviewed on Mental Toughness, I want to mentor you. Many of my students have become very successful. As a matter of fact, one of them made nearly $2M speaking last year. Pretty impressive. The application deadline is approaching fast, so if you’re interested, watch this short video post and then visit www.speakersapprentice.com and watch the full 41 minute presentation.
Mental Toughness Training begins with seeing life and the world around us as they are, not as we wish they were. How many of us get stressed out on a daily basis without considering the fact that the very nature of life is temporary? It’s easy to get caught up, frustrated and overwhelmed with problems and people that raise our blood pressure. By facing the fact that life is short and it will end relatively soon, it allows us the freedom to let things go that used to stress us out. Watch this short video I shot on this subject and I’ll look forward to your comments.
In a perfect world, we would turn our money over to professional money managers and forget about it. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and if you don’t watch your money, you may not have any when you need it. Mental Toughness is about taking responsibility for your life, and that includes your money. If the great recession of 2008 taught us anything, it’s how fast your wealth can evaporate if you’re not careful—and even when you ARE careful! Watch this short video (2 min) I recorded on this subject and I’ll look forward to your comments.

America is an amazing place. It’s a place where you can start with nothing and build an empire. That’s what the most of the wealthiest people have done, yet the remaining 99% of the population struggles financially all of their lives. How about you? Are you living in financial abundance or laboring in the stress-filled world of the middle class? The good news is that whatever position you are in, you can begin today to make it better. And make no mistake: the rich WILL CONTINUE getting RICHER, and the masses will continue to struggle. The only question is; which group will you be in? Watch this short video I taped on the streets of Boston and I’ll look forward to your comments.

After interviewing over 1,200 millionaires over the past 30 years, I’ve found that few people outside of this group really understand the mindset of the rich. Many people in the middle class believe there is no difference in mindset between themselves and the wealthy, and they couldn’t be more wrong. Watch this short (3:30) video I shot in New York City a few days ago after appearing on FOX Business Network with Wall Street Analyst Stuart Varney. I’ll look forward to your comments.
Over the past 18 years as a full-time professional speaker, I’ve worked with most of of the top thought leaders in the personal development space. My conclusion today is the same as it was back in 1996: Mental Toughness, the ability to control and manipulate your emotions combined with iron-like persistence, is the key to the world-class success. In my mind, that’s a given. The critical thinking question we all have to ask ourselves is; “do I have the mental toughness to get what I really want out of life?” Not what you’ll settle for, but what you actually want. Watch this short video I taped at the Civil War Battlefield at Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia, where one of the bloodiest battles of the civil war was fought. I’ll look forward to your comments.
Labor unions leveled the playing field during a time of flagrant abuses by some employers and organizations. In the information age, where a post on Facebook or a tweet on Twitter exposing abuses can be read by millions in minutes, unions are no longer necessary. Critical thinking (ATS–According to Siebold–:) says that it’s time to abolish unions and allow the free market to operate. Watch this short (and somewhat shocking) video I shot in front of a live audience in Ann Arbor, Michigan and watch the outcry. I’ll look forward to your comments.
In 1620, the Pilgrims had the mental toughness to leave their homes and sail across the ocean to begin a new life. That took a lot of guts. My critical thinking question for you is “What habit, action or behavior, if you had the guts to employ it, would have the biggest impact on your life?” Watch this short video I taped yesterday in front of The Mayflower in historic Plymouth, Mass. and I’ll look forward to your comments.
