Want My Legendary Live Event Strategies?

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love doing live events…

And after many years of doing very few live events…

In 2022 I did a tonne of live events, and this while I’ve scaled back a little this year, live/virutal events are still something we do every few months.

Events are a great way for you to give your audience HUGE value upfront.

And of course they’re also a way to upsell them on your high ticket offers.

So, in this week’s newsletter you’ll discover how to fill your event, how to keep attendees engaged, and different strategies to make big money with live events.

Let’s get started.

How To Fill An Event

As a coach, consultant, trainer, or expert, whether it’s small, medium, or large…

You most likely have some type of audience.

And if you don’t, now is a great time to start building one.

Because your content builds a relationship with new prospects on autopilot, and it’s scalable.

Now, even if you don’t have a big audience right now, you can still fill your event with paid ads.

And in this video you’ll discover game changing strategies to fill your event even if you don’t have a referral network or loyal following.

By the time you’ve finished watching, you’ll also have a tested and proven strategy to ensure your attendees actually show up >>

How To Increase Attendee Participation

Getting people to the event is your first hurdle, but getting them to participate is another hurdle altogether.

Have you ever been to a boring event?

I have, and if you’re not engaging your audience, you’re leaving A LOT of money on the table.

People will never invest more money with someone who does excite, motivate, and engage them.

In our business, we’ve generated tens of millions of dollars with events, and over the years we learned a thing or two about audience engagement.

So, here are 3 ways you can increase audience engagement.

  • Demand engagement
  • Reward engagement
  • Maintain high energy levels

In this video you’ll discover exactly how I do this in my events, AND you’ll also get 2 more ways to improve engagement >>

I highly recommend you watch the video if you want to improve engagement at your live events and improve your revenue.

How To Ensure Your Audience Gets The Most Out Of Your Event

A lot of people go to events and learn nothing.

Sure they may take a lot of notes, but they usually end up on the shelf and they gain nothing from the event.

So, in order for your audience to walk away from your event with a truly valuable experience, I recommend you instruct them to do 3 things.

On the first day, before you begin teaching, let them know they should be wearing 2 hats.

  1. A “connector’s” hat: Events are a great place to expand their network.
    They should have an idea of the type of people they want to meet they can add value to and help them move their business forward.
  2. A “student’s” hat: Rather than coming to the event and taking notes on everything, they should be looking for 10-12 big ideas they can implement.
    They should aim to implement those ideas within 30 days.
    If they don’t implement them in the next month, they never will.

If you let them know how to get the most out of your event, they are more likely to invest in your high ticket programs after getting so much value.

How To Make BIG Money With Live Events

As you’ve already seen…

There’s a lot that goes into the event.

In the first video I linked above, there were some strategies to ensure people actually turn up.

But I’d like to take that a step further in a moment.

Because at every event, there is a Before, During, and After.

Your focus before the event is to get as many people to turn up as possible.

You’d be surprised, even though people pay for something, they may not attend.

And if the event is free, there’s an even bigger chance they won’t attend.

So, I shot you a very powerful video where you’ll discover >>

  • Why the quality of your attendees is far more important than the quantity…
  • The BIGGEST mistake most people make when running events…
  • How to create anticipation in your attendees to make sure they attend…
  • What to do before, during, and after the event…
  • How to repurpose your event to make more money…
  • And much, much more!

I’ve packed a lot into this quick 10 minute video, and this is the exact formula I’ve followed to generate tens of millions of dollars with events, so get ready to take notes.

A Follow Up Strategy So Powerful It’s Not Even Fair

I’ve got one more video for you my friend.

What you’re about to see was shot at an exclusive and private dinner with my Dragon 100™ clients.

It’s rare that I share something from the VIP vault…

But I feel this event strategy has the power to greatly increase the number of clients you sign at your events.

And the best part?

It gives you one action to take before and after the event, but it’s so simple, and that’s why it works.

So click here for an unfair advantage over your competitors >>

In closing…

Done right, events can bring you a huge ROI in your business.

I hope this newsletter has given you enough strategies to take away and implement in your next event.

Until next time… go high ticket,

Get The Best Out Of Your Sales Team

Your closers are part of one of the most important teams in your business…

And over the years, I’ve built sales teams of all sizes, including up to well over 100 closers.

I’ve tested many ways to train them, incentivize them, and help them perform to their fullest potential.

Some things worked, while others didn’t.

So, in this week’s newsletter, you’ll get a comprehensive list of things you must do if you want a closing team of top producers.

So, grab a notepad and a pen and get ready to make good notes…

Because this newsletter will be one of the most important things you read if you want to take your business to brand-new heights.

Why Your Sales Team Must Be Coachable

Before you hire any new closer, you must first find out if they’re coachable.

The way to do this is to roleplay with them and give them feedback.

If they take the feedback well and without ego, you know they’re coachable.

Next, you want to roleplay again to see if they can take the feedback onboard.

This will show they can implement feedback fast, which is exactly the type of person you need on your team.

Why Your Prospects Are More Important Than Your Product

The old way of sales is DEAD my friend.

Gone are the days of talking AT your prospect and selling the features and benefits.

In today’s market, your prospect is most important, and in fact, they always were, it’s just taken people this long to figure it out.

Every closer on your team must know your prospects inside out.

They must know their pains, problems, roadblocks, goals, fears, aspirations, etc.

Outside of that, they must have the product knowledge to know if you have a good solution to their problem.

You’d be surprised how many business owners don’t have a customer avatar document.

You should already have a detailed customer avatar to give new team members, especially in sales and marketing.

If you want to know how to create a customer avatar in 5 simple steps then click here >>

How To Set Them Up For Success

A lot of business owners don’t have a solid onboarding process.

They don’t set expectations well enough (more on this later)…

And they don’t give them the right materials to study.

So, here are 5 things that will help onboard your closers:

  1. Show them how to set sales appointments

    This should be done live either by you, your sales manager, or your top closer or appointment setter.
  2. Show them how to close deals live

    This should be done live either by you, your sales manager, or your top closer.
  3. Give them successful sales calls to listen to

    Find the best sales calls you can, and give them to your closers to listen to on repeat.
  4. Get them to roleplay amongst themselves daily

    If you have a physical office, you can create an objection game, so whenever your closers walk past each other they throw objections at each other and have to answer them on the spot.

    If you have a virtual office, then get them to set aside some time each morning for roleplay.
  5. Create an environment with tools that can train them when you can’t

    Recommend the best sales books… give them access to sales trainings you’ve invested in.

    Set up their environment in such a way that you’re not needed every time you want to train them.

    As the CEO you don’t have time to train your team every day, like I’m doing here >>

But you should train them periodically or find someone capable to do it.

What Expectations Should You Set Before They Start Work?

You’ll want to let them know their KPIs based on performance and behaviors.

Performance KPIs will obviously be the number of sales, but behavioral KPIs will be things like…

Clearing their pipeline every day… never being late for sales meetings… following up with prospects every 90 days or so, etc.

If they dip below their KPIs for two weeks or don’t meet your minimum expectations, they’ll need more training.

Hold them accountable to your expectations and their KPIs by firing them if they’re not met after a further two weeks.

Make sure you fire the bottom 25% of your closing team every quarter as well.

This keeps everyone on their toes and ensures you have the best producers on your team.

Why You Must Have a Leaderboard

You’ll want to set up two leaderboards either in your office or somewhere your team can see them daily in a virtual setting.

Have one leaderboard for sales results, and another for the daily tasks/behaviors I mentioned earlier.

Because it’s the behaviors that create results for them and your company at the end of the day.

Why You Must Create A Solid Compensation Plan

Your compensation plan must incentivize your closers.

We use a combination of a few different commission structures, depending on price point and profit margin.

Every new closer starts in my company as a setter, regardless of their experience.

They earn a percentage of sales for appointments they set.

After they’ve proven themselves by getting a predetermined number of sales, they then move to a closing position.

In this position, they get a base plus commissions, and we also work out a bonus structure that works similarly to the tiered commission structure.

Providing your closers with a base removes neediness and desperation.

The last thing I want in my team is a closer who is in survival mode because this causes most people to act on emotions and irrationally in a sales conversation.

How To Reward Your Top Closers

If you like, you can also reward your top closers with gifts.

The size of the gift isn’t as important as the fact that you’re giving them something for performing well.

It can be as small as a $20-$50 gift card.

Then, as you grow you can increase the size of the gifts.

In closing…

Training your closers, setting expectations, and rewarding them for good performance is key to building a successful closing team.

Until next time… go high ticket,

Get Your Client Results 10x Faster?

Throughout my coaching career, I’ve tried many things to help my clients get results…

And what I’ve realized through all the trial and error is this.

It doesn’t matter how good you are…

It doesn’t matter how much experience you have…

And it doesn’t even matter how eager you are or how much you care.

You’ll never help 100% of your clients get results.

So what stops clients from getting results?

Their mindset.

You may have heard Tony Robbins’ famous quote…

“Success is 80% mindset, 20% mechanics.”

And it’s very true.

So in this week’s newsletter, I’ll discuss 7 reasons why your clients may sabotage their own success, and the one solution to fix it all.

But before getting into the main part of the newsletter, let me give you a perfect example of why mindset is so important.

As you know, I teach High Ticket Closing.

The mechanics of high ticket closing include asking the right questions, playing with prospect resistance, asking for money, talking to strangers, and many other things.

But if the mentee is uncomfortable with any of the mechanics, or they have a negative association with sales,  then they’ll never succeed.

So, let’s dive into the…

7 Reasons Why Your Clients May Not Succeed

  1. They can’t do it

    This one is obvious, and it’s the reason why they’ve hired you.

    If they could do it, they would have already done it.
  2. They won’t do it

    Here they have the ability but they simply won’t do the work to achieve the success they desire.
  3. They don’t believe they can do it

    Here they have the ability, but for whatever reason, they don’t believe they can succeed.

    This often causes people not to even try to change their life and get better results.
  4. They don’t believe it will work

    No matter how many clients you have that have succeeded with your program…

    There will always be people who don’t believe it will work.

    What they’re really saying is similar to the 3rd reason.

    They don’t believe it will work for them.

    Sure, they can see other people succeeding.

    But they don’t think it will work for them, and this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Meaning, if they don’t think it will work, it won’t work.
  5. They don’t stick with it long enough

    Success happens at different times for different people.

    Some reach their goals in a month or two, some may take years.

    So, what determines how fast someone will succeed?

    The truth is, there are many variables, which include but are not limited to…

    The hours they put in… how consistent they are… how fast they learn, and countless others.
  6. They play the victim.

    In my High Ticket Closer Certification™ (HTC), we have a rule.

    That rule is “No excuses, No opinions, and No victims.”

    Victims always look for someone else to blame.

    They b*tch, moan, and whine.

    And if you accidentally bring on clients like these, not only will they be a client from hell, but they’ll never succeed.
    They haven’t taken full responsibility for their life, and until they do, they’ll continue to stay stuck.
  7. Their environment

    I always say, “Your environment is more powerful than your willpower.”

    If your clients are constantly hanging out with negative friends and family, they’ll be influenced by them and this will cause internal friction in their mind.

    They may be swayed not to work on themselves, their business, and their goals.

    And if they don’t move house or distance themselves, this will adversely affect their future success.

How To Help Them Overcome The 7 Roadblocks To Success

So, with all these roadblocks and obstacles getting in their way, how do you give your clients the best chance of success?

The answer is of course, to include a mindset portion in your program.

Your mindset modules should be designed in such a way to remove old beliefs that could halt their success…

And replace them with more empowering beliefs and different ways of thinking that will help them succeed.

For example: In HTC™, I teach the psychology of high ticket sales… why sales is a noble profession and not something to be ashamed of… why people look down on salespeople… why they can’t afford to be afraid of speaking to strangers, and so much more.

If you haven’t already, brainstorm the different ways of thinking someone must have to succeed in your program, and all the different mental roadblocks someone may experience when working with you.

You may like to interview past or current clients, because they may tell you things you’ll likely never think of.

Remember, all you can do is to help the clients who want to help themselves.

And if they join your program, and don’t think they need mindset training, then those are the people who need it the most, and usually they’re the ones you can’t help.

In closing…

If you want to give your clients the best chance of success, don’t skip the mindset training.

When you include mindset, you should see your success rate increase, and if you only let in highly motivated people, this will also improve your client success rate.

Until next time… go high ticket,

9 Factors To Make YOU Successful…

Have you ever wondered what makes someone successful?

Well, after hundreds of interviews throughout my business career, I’ve uncovered 9 characteristics all successful people have.

So, in this week’s newsletter, you’ll discover what the 9 characteristics are, and how to incorporate them into your life.

So, get excited my friend.

How To Unleash Your Competitive Side

In order to succeed at anything in life or business, you must be competitive.

And if you don’t like competing with others, you’ve got to at least compete with yourself.

If you’re constantly competing with the old version of yourself…

You have no choice but to continue improving, which is actually another characteristic all successful people have.

If you’re not constantly improving you’ll stop growing and get the same results year after year.

What’s more, the more you compete with yourself, the more you’ll naturally build that competitive nature and begin to compete with others.

This is especially important in business because business is WAR, and if you don’t remain competitive, you’ll become a casualty of war.

It’s important that you don’t compare yourself to others when you’re competing with them.

It may sound counter-intuitive, but this 8 min video really helps break this down to show you how to be competitive without comparing yourself to others >>

How to Let Go of Things That Don’t Serve You

Successful people know when to cut their losses.

It’s easy to get caught up in a project, venture, business, or even a professional or romantic relationship hoping things will change.

The same goes for your job too.

You’ve got to learn to let go when you feel the time is right.

The good news is the more you do this, the easier it gets.

The better you’ll get to know yourself, and the faster you’ll be able to identify when something doesn’t serve you.

In some cases, you may even not start something because you’ll know it will be a bad fit or won’t serve you long-term.

I’m almost certain you know deep down when something isn’t serving you, but if you need a hand with this, then you’ll love this video >>

Why You Must Have Self-Discipline, Resilience, and Patience

When Arnold Schwarzenegger was in his prime, he won multiple bodybuilding competitions, including Mr. Olympia 7 times.

People used to say to him, “I never want to look like you.”

To which he replied, “Don’t worry, you never will.”

You see, he knew what an important role self-discipline, resilience, and patience played in his success.

Without self-discipline, you’ll never do the things you need to do to succeed.

Without resilience, you’ll give up when times get tough.

And without patience, you’ll give up too soon, or suffer from shiny object syndrome.

All successful people have these 3 qualities in spades, and that’s why they succeed.

This video, breaks down the 10 most important insights of Marcus Aurelius on how to build self-discipline >>

As I mentioned above, resilience is another important characteristic of successful people…

And if you want 6 strategies for becoming more resilient, then click here >>

When it comes to patience, this is where things can get a little confusing.

You want a sense of urgency, but you must be patient with your results.

We live in an instant gratification world and we all want fast results…

But things always take longer than you expect.

So keep that in mind when you’re on your quest for success.

Why Being Curious Is Important

If you weren’t curious about a more abundant, free, and financially empowering life, you wouldn’t be reading this newsletter.

But as you continue along your journey and experience success here and there, it’s important you stay curious.

You should be continually curious about how to get even better results than you already have.

You should be looking for better, more efficient ways of doing things, and continue growing.

If you can do this, you’ll never run out of things to learn, and you’ll look back 3, 5, 10 years from now and you’ll barely recognize the person you once were.

Why Taking Risks Is the Key to Success

You can look at your comfort zone as your risk zone.

The sooner you step outside your comfort zone into risk-taking territory, the quicker you’ll realize your dreams and aspirations.

There are so many benefits of taking risks, including…

  • They empower you beyond belief
  • You make mistakes and learn from them
  • They make you stand out from the crowd
  • They make you proactive instead of reactive
  • They help you get to know yourself and your limits
  • And more!

But I don’t want you to take just any risk.

The risk you take must be calculated.

For example, quitting your job to start a business without a high-income skill is a huge risk.

Quitting your job after you’ve made $5K-$10K per month with your high-income skill is still a risk but it’s a calculated risk with a far higher chance of success.

Why I Believe In Negative Preparation Over Positivity

In life and business, having a positive mindset is crucial…

But you don’t want to be blindly positive without preparing for anything negative that may come your way.

That’s why I believe in negative preparation.

I expect the best but prepare for the worst, just in case.

This gives you a safety net if something goes wrong.

More than likely, things will never go 100% wrong or 100% right, it’s likely to be somewhere in the middle.

But at least if you prepare for the worst, you’ll have no problem getting yourself out of any situation.

In Closing…

The other thing all successful people have in common is skills.

As I teach in my High Ticket Closing Certification™ is…

Skillset + Mindset + Correct Action = Guaranteed Success.

Everything we’ve spoken about today is about your mindset, and now you just need the right skillset and right action to kick start your journey to success.

So, click here to check out our range of high-income skills at the Dan Lok Shop >>

I truly believe developing a high-income skill is the best way to find success and freedom without starting a business.

Until next time,

Dan Lok

P.S. – Success isn’t this mythical thing reserved only for a small portion of the population.

It’s as simple as finding a skill that suits your personality.

Happy Employees = High Profit?

We’ve all heard the phrases “the customer is always right” and “it all starts with your customer”

But is that really true?

My friend and CEO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Brian Scudamore disagrees.

He believes that no company grows sustainably without first taking care of its people.

When you take care of your people, they’ll take care of your customers, and your customers take care of your brand, reputation, revenue, and profits.

So, in this week’s newsletter, you’ll discover how to hire the right people and create a happy work environment, and a winning culture so your employees are taken care of.

This will in turn bring you higher profits and a much healthier business in more ways than one.

Before we get started, you may like to check out this snippet of an interview I did with Brian at the Dragon Summit™ last year…

Where he talks about the importance of finding the right person not just for your business but for you as well, and much more >>

Why Happy Employees Make All The Difference

The results are in, and studies show that happy employees mean lower employee turnover and higher revenues for the company they work for.

Here’s the thing, it’s a myth that more money is what makes an employee happy.

Sure, everyone wants more money, but if an employee’s job lacks responsibility and trust…

Or they feel like they’re being treated unfairly, or they feel like the things they say are overlooked or seen as unimportant, then this affects their job happiness.

How To Hire The Right People

Depending on the size of your business, hiring the wrong people can and will cost you hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars over time.

Likewise, hiring the right people will save and make you millions of dollars.

My hiring strategies are quite unconventional.

Most people hire based on someone’s resume, whereas I’ve not read many resumes at all.

In fact, all my team members were hired based on their attitude, and we trained them on the job.

Many of them started in one position, but ended up in a completely different position, as I like to promote from within.

If you’d like some of my best tips and strategies for hiring the right people, then click here to watch this video >> 

How To Build a Winning Team

An average leader only takes the relationship with employees 1 or 2 layers deep.

As a result, the employees won’t stay loyal to them.

So, if you want to be the kind of person your employees will stay loyal to and do anything for, you must connect with them on the deepest level possible.

Now, depending on the size of your business this could be challenging, but still doable.

In this video, Gary Vee shares his method for getting to know and building a strong relationship with your employees >>

The method he shares is simple, yet effective, so set aside some time to implement this, and you’ll reap the rewards for years to come.

How To Create a Winning Culture

You may have heard the saying “no one man is more important than the mission”.

As the CEO of your company, you’ll have to make many tough decisions.

Some of which may be to fire people who don’t fit the culture even if they’re phenomenal at their job.

So how do you create a winning culture?

You first need to identify what your company’s core values are.

At Team Dan Lok, our core values are:

  1. Loyalty
  2. Harmony
  3. Extreme Ownership
  4. High Performance
  5. Constant Improvement

You’ll notice ‘Harmony’ is one of our core values, and that fits in with my previous statement of firing people who don’t fit, even if they exhibit ‘High Performance’.

So what would you like your company’s core values to be?

You could model some of ours and add a few of your own.

But you must first get clear on these, so you know if your employees are a culture fit or not.

How to Be a Better Manager

People ask me all the time, “Dan, how can I best manage my team?”

I used to be a micromanager, and what I realized is, not only does micromanaging waste everyone’s time…

But, I discovered people can’t be managed.

It’s much better for you to create a system for your employees, and your employees will manage themselves.

This makes your job as a leader much easier because your job is to coach and guide your team to success.

Not only are systems important for your employees, but they are essential if you want to scale.


Because you can’t scale if more of your time is being taken up every time you hit a new revenue level.

In this video, I discuss more reasons why you need systems to scale, and why you NEVER want to be the smartest person in your company >>

How to Become a Better Leader

Leadership is a learnable skill, and there are many ways you could become a better leader.

First, you must know what you need to work on…

And this could be challenging, but whenever a problem arises with an employee, think about how your leadership has played a part in that problem.

Then brainstorm ways this problem could have been avoided if different actions were taken.

But if you’d like to know the 10 skills every good leader should have, then click here >>

To summarize this newsletter, if you take care of your employees, they will take care of your customers/clients.

It’s really that simple, but there’s a lot that goes into it, as you’ve just seen.

Until next time, go high ticket,

Dan Lok

P.S. – As I mentioned earlier, systems are vital to your business.

As luck would have it, we’re running our next S.M.A.R.T. Challenge™ on April 19-21.

This is my 3-day business immersive where you’ll gain the secrets and strategies I and my clients use to SCALE, SYSTEMIZE, and SUSTAIN our businesses through any economic climate.

I’ve used these exact strategies to generate over $100 million in my coaching/consulting business, and now I’m handing them to you on a silver platter.

We only run the challenge a few times per year, so don’t miss your chance to borrow my high ticket business playbook and make 2023 your best year yet >>

The Darkside Of Success..

Here’s something most don’t think about on their quest for success…

You see successful people online with the mansions, the cars, the private jets, and nice clothes, etc…

But few people document their journey to success.

And even if they do, you rarely get to see what it’s like behind the scenes.

You don’t see the long hours, the sleepless nights, the dark thoughts, the arguments with their family or friends.

So, in this week’s newsletter I want to talk about the darkside of success.

Because I don’t believe everyone has what it takes to be successful.

Success comes at a great price, and the average person is lazy.

All they want to do is go to work, get their paycheck, and watch TV or go to the bar.

But you’re not an average person.

You work on yourself and your high income skills, and I know if you keep it up, you WILL achieve the levels of success you desire.

So without further ado, let’s dive into some of the things to be mindful of as you pursue success and how to deal with them. 


If you’ve been on your success journey you’ll know this to be true.

Most of your friends and family simply don’t get it.

They don’t understand why you work so hard.

They don’t understand why you want more.

They don’t understand why you’re not satisfied with what you already have.

And for this reason, you don’t relate to a lot of them anymore.

At get-togethers and dinners they’re happy talking about the latest celebrity gossip, or how drunk they got last weekend…

But you want to talk about impacting the world, being passionate about life, business, relationships, and deeper topics they seem to have no interest in.

So how do you deal with this loneliness?

I shot you a 30 second video here, on how I deal with it. I hope it helps >>

Anxiety, Stress, and Worry

At times, running a business or becoming a freelancer can cause a lot of uncertainty and anxiety in your life.

This can create a vicious cycle of stress, constant worry, sleepless nights, and physical issues, such as weight gain or loss, amongst others.

And all this could affect your relationships, if you let it.

So what’s the best way to deal with all this?

Firstly, you want to have as much certainty in your life as possible.

This means, if you’re a freelancer, you should always be filling your pipeline with prospects that could turn into paid gigs.

You want to get comfortable being uncomfortable.

You want to set aside a certain percentage of money each month for emergencies.

Aim for at least 6-12 months of living expenses, and continue growing this indefinitely.

Make sure you commit to exercising at least 4-5 times per week, to stay fit, and eat only whole foods, to ensure you get the right nutrients.

Envy and Jealousy

Your friends and family could become envious or jealous of your success.

They may distance themselves from you because they’re uncomfortable being around you.

Not just because you’re financially better off, but because seeing you is a reminder of what they could have done with their life.

If you have people you’ve known for a long time, they’ll know the “old” you.

The person who was shy or unconfident, and was just like them.

But over the years, they’ve seen you grow.

They’ve seen you make more money, and it makes them think about their own life and the time they’ve wasted.

Greed and Unfulfillment

When financial success is one of the main reasons why anyone pursues success, it’s easy to get carried away with making more and more money.

If you’re only doing something for money, you’ll find you won’t be fulfilled by the work you do.

Don’t forget, money is a byproduct of value creation, so the more value you create the more money you’ll make.

I chased money for years, and although I made a lot of it, the first time I retired I was completely unfulfilled…

And that’s why I now do what I do, because it lights me up every day.

Not Defining YOUR Success

Let me ask you something.

What does success mean to you?

Before you begin your journey to success, it’s important you define what success means to you.

If you don’t, you’ll end up chasing someone else’s definition of success.

You’ll compare yourself to others all the time, and this will cause all kinds of problems such as depression or…

Feeling like a failure.

When you have your own definition of success, you can only compare yourself to where you were last week, last month, or last year.

Not Defining YOUR Vehicle

There are hundreds of ways to achieve success online, but you’ve got to find the one that suits you best.

What works for someone else may not work for you.

So, don’t beat yourself up if something you start doesn’t work out.

It could be you’re not suited to that particular thing, and maybe you just haven’t tried enough things yet.

But if you keep going, you’ll eventually find the right vehicle to help you achieve the success you deserve.

In Closing…

You have to be absolutely certain you want success badly enough to do whatever it takes to achieve it

As long as it’s legal, moral, and ethical, you must move heaven and earth to become a success, if that’s what you truly desire.

To your success,
