The Magic Mental Toughness Formula

There’s a little known formula for thinking that creates a psychological structure for high performance. World-class coaches like Nick Saban and Coach K are masters of it. The most strategic professional athletes use it to drive their performance. On the flip side, Tiger Woods got the formula confused during his personal crisis, and it cost him a decade in the prime of his career. The formula can work for or against you. Once you understand it, it will become as asset you can utilize for the rest of your life.
 

Mental Toughness and Money

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.

My Years with Ayn Rand

If you’re a fan of Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead, or Atlas Shrugged, you absolutely MUST read My Years with Ayn Rand, by Dr. Nathanial Branden. Dr. Branden was the protege of Ayn Rand, who many people believe was one of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century. The Passion of Ayn Rand was made into a Hollywood movie about 10 years ago starring Helen Mirren. The movie focused primarily around the love affair between Ms. Rand and her protege, which is typical Hollywood, but this book takes you behind the scenes of this brilliant thinker and shows you the upside and

James Arthur Ray and the Personal Development Industry

I’m so sorry for the loss of life and sickness that occurred at James Ray’s Spiritual Warrior Program in Sedona a few weeks ago. Before this tragedy, I’d never even heard of a sweat lodge. In the weeks following this event, James Ray has been demonized all over the media.

People are saying he’s greedy, arrogant and only in the business for the money. They’re calling him everything in the book. They’re lambasting him for living

5 Reasons You Need To Be Rich

I’ve just signed an international book deal with the largest wholesaler of books in the world to place all of my products in bookstores around the globe; including my 2010 release, How Rich People Think: 101 Differences in Thinking Between the Middle class and World class. This book is going to cause more controversy than the Die Fat or Get Tough Book! I’m already getting questions from the press about the content. The bottom line is THINKING is the foundation of every great (self-made) fortune. It all starts with how you THINK about money. Most people have so many limiting beliefs

Steve Siebold’s USA TODAY Editorial Rebuttal: Should Ministers Be Doling Out Marriage Advice?

I just submitted my 250 word rebuttal to an editorial written about what God wants us to do in our marriages. Two ministers from different churches advising people on God’s wishes. I’d like to know where they’re getting their information. It’s not from the Bible. The good book was even written long before the institution of marriage was created. No, I’m afraid this is the work of man-made religion and has nothing to do with God. Before you start throwing rocks at me I ask that you listen to this post. I’m not slamming God. I’m a person of faith and
