Secrets Self-Made Millionaires Teach Their Kids about Work

After interviewing over 1,300 self-made millionaires since 1984, I wrote a book called Secrets Self-Made Millionaires Teach Their Kids. This book dissects the strategies, philosophies, and the psychology around everything related to earning, investing, saving, growing and protecting wealth. The book made the cover of Money Magazine the week it was published, and since then it’s been featured on ABC News, CNN, NBC News, Forbes Magazine CBS Morning News and dozens of other media outlets around the world. Study this book with your kids (10 & up) and be sure to download the free workbook listed in the book. These are

Jack Welch on Mentally Tough Leadership

Years ago I was speaking at a coporate convention at Caesers Palace in Las Vegas with the late, great Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric. I was in the process of doing turnarounds for Johnson & Johnson with our mental toughness process, and I asked him for advice while we were backstage in the green room. After all, in those days Welch was regarded by many on Wall Street as the greatest turnaround specialist in corporate America. In this video, I share the simple, yet powerful advice he gave that I used over the next 20+ years. #mentaltoughness #personaldevelopment #jackwelch

Mental Toughness on Overcoming Jealousy

Jealousy is the thief of happiness. Experiencing strong negative emotions toward someone else for what they have (and you’re missing) is a formula for misery, and yet we all allow it to grab us from time-to-time. Luckily, there’s a simple psychological hack known as “compersion”, which has the power to drastically reduce and even eliminate the strongest feelings of jealousy. In this post, I discuss an interview I conducted in 2011 with Dr. Deborah Anapol, one of the leading authorities on this subject. Her e-book, “Compersion: Meditations on Using Jealously as a Path to Unconditional Love” is the best book I’ve

Mental Toughness on Controlling Your Life

If you woke up and went to work today because you wanted to, you’re in control of money. If you woke up and went to work today because you needed to, money is in control of you. Unfortunately, even in the richest country in the world, 95% of the population is struggling financially, and as a result, is under control of an individual or organization. Even many of the social media show-offs standing next to their helicopters and private jets are living with massive debt. The good news is that there’s a way to buy back control of your time and

Critical Thinking on Multi-Level/Network Marketing

Multilevel marketing, or Network Marketing, has been around for over 80 years, and has generated countless billions of dollars in sales around the world. It’s opponents have thrown every legal argument out to prove that the marketing concept is actually a pyramid scheme, and they have failed. MLM is certainly misunderstood, yet it’s a proven, legal, ethical method of marketing that’s created both part-time and full-time businesses for millions of people. So why do so many people hate it? Why is there is so much disinformation about it? The short answer is because most people fail at Network Marketing, and it’s

Mental Toughness on Sex

In 2012, I wrote a book called “Sex. Politics Religion: How Delusional Thinking is Detroying America.” It was covered and reviewed on ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN, not to mention dozens of magazines. Of the 12 books I’ve written, with almost 2 million copies sold, this is my BEST book, but NOT my best seller. It’s the book I promised myself I’d write once I had enough money. In this video, I discuss the chapter on sex, and how puritanical American culture has buried this subject and contributed to the ignorance of our society. #personaldevelopment #mentaltoughness

Mental Toughness on Fighting

No one likes a fight. No one goes looking for trouble, but life and business have a habit of placing us in harms way. The fact is that sometimes you have to stand up for yourself in the face of conflict. Sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in. There are times when people choose to push you around and unless you fight back, they will be even more empowered to push you more in the future. How much are you willing to tolerate when it comes to the abusive behavior of others? iHow much crap are you

Mental Toughness on Fear

Champions handle fear like a snake charmer. That’s what I say in Chapter #50 of my million-copy best seller, 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class. The truth is, there’s even more to it than that. There’s a life philosophy that many high performers follow when it comes to fear, and for many people, it’s a game changer. In this video, I share this philosophy and how it can help you reduce the level of fear and suffering in your life. #mentaltoughness #personaldevelopment #fear #fearless #177mentaltoughnesssecrets

The Mark of a Champion

As a former professional athlete, I can tell you the traits that seperate the good from the great. It’s not what most fans think. It’s not sexy, but it’s the one thing you must have to succeed. It’s a combination of mental toughness and emotional stability, day-in and day-out. In this episode of the Mental Toughness Podcast, we dive into this critical, under-appreciated aspect of peak performance. Whether you’re an athlete, entrepreneur or proud parent, this is the single tenet you must lock down. #mentaltoughness #personaldevelopment

Overcoming Emotional Overwhelm

This is the death trap of high performance, where dreams go to die. So you’ve got this big goal that requires multiple steps over an extended period of time. It all seems so overwhelming, so you become paralyzed and never begin. This is emotional overwhelm, and there are so many examples of how this phenomenon derails even the most mentally tough performers. COVID-19 was an example of a mass event that shut down the world, leaving billions of people frozen in fear and unable to move forward. The retirement crisis is another example. Millions of retirees in the United States have
