Let Go & Lead
Ever since my hometown was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy last week, itís been a huge change of living standards for me. Iíve had hardly any phone or internet access. I havenít had any power all week. My dog Victor broke his leg running around our backyard. My wifeís car got swamped by four feet of water. I donít even remember what itís like to wash my face with warm water!
Is groupthink right for you?
I have been watching the vigorous presidential debates and last night was no different than the rest. I see a lot of rhetoric from politicians who take each othersí words and try to turn them around and against each other. Itís all spin. And at the end of the day, unless you go and fact check everything theyíre saying, there is no way to know which side is telling the truth.
Sooner or later, good or bad, it all comes back to you
Life is like a boomerang. All of our thoughts are energy, and what we put out either comes back to us (like a boomerang) or hits its target. There is a certain impact to the thoughts going through your mind every day. That energy from your mind comes from your body.
What we do today echoes in eternity
Regardless of what you do, time will come and go. What you have to ask yourself is: if I am willing to stick with my mission, even if the results arenít immediately apparent, will I or will I not be better off months Ė years Ė decades down the road? The answer is absolutely YES. Donít be attached to the timelines. Everything comes full circle. Youíll get exactly out of your business what you put into it. (The same goes for your life.) If you attach yourself to the intention Ė not the outcome Ė and you trust the right results will be learned, whatever happens from that will be the right result. Thatís how you will learn the right lessons from life.
If I can make it here, you can make it anywhere
The first time I ever went to New York City was one week after the attacks of 9/11/01. At the time, I was a truck driver. At that time, I could still see the smoldering buildings near Ground Zero. It was a surreal scene and a very somber tone to the whole city that day. Here I am, 11 years later, in New York again today. Iíve had apartments and offices here. From my hotel room, I can see the Freedom Tower. Itís 1,776 feet tall, WAY bigger than any other building around it. Thatís also the year the America declared its independence. America came back bigger and better after the attacks. So many lives and businesses were lost that day, but now, weíve built ourselves back up.
We are all connected.
9/11 is a date that is burned into my memory, like it is for a lot of people. We can all remember exactly where we were right now 11 years ago. It was a tragedy that told us that nothing would ever be the same, that everything has changed, and that we all NEED to change. In and of itself, it was a terrible tragedy. But over the bigger picture, when you look at events that force you to change like that, the changes they help you make can be some of the biggest blessings of life.
The best way to 'wake up' is to stay awake
Sometimes in life, you have moments that jolt you to consciousness like a wake up call or an alarm clock would. I had many of those moments in an amazing experience in the Nevada desert last week.
Grow your own way
When we grow above the crowd, it hurts in the short term - but it benefits us in the long term.
Love or fear?
There are a lot of talking heads in the online marketing industry. They go about selling whatever theyíre selling in many different ways. Those ways can change with the times, but there are certain success principles that have been in place from the beginning of time that are always going to be true. They never change. One of those principles is simply this: love is stronger than fear.
YOU decide your Ďchancesí of success.
Does it feel like time goes by faster when you get older? It seems like just yesterday we were talking about how 2012 would be for you and what you wanted to accomplish this year. Itís helpful sometimes to do a quick check in with yourself and see how youíre tracking with the goals you set for yourself back in January.

In six short years, Canadian entrepreneur Jay Kubassek went from working on a farm to selling mufflers at a Kansas City Midas shop to revolutionizing home-based entrepreneurialism with the 2004 launch of his Internet-based education company CarbonCopyPRO and the PRO family of companies.

But Jay has proven that business success and financial freedom can be achieved by virtually anyone who wants it badly enough, provided they are willing to earn it and the entrepreneurial spark is still there.
