Wouldn’t it be great if we could just change the world RIGHT NOW? Just hit a button and cut out every hurtful, sad, tragic, scary and bad part of it, to start fresh and build it back with love, friendship, trust and laughter?
I think we can change the world, but we have to start with ourselves. If you can be a better you, and inspire others to do the same.. Have them inspire others to do the same again… Sooner or later we have to get around the world, right? It’s a nice thought.
I have worked a lot on myself the last 7-8 months. Every single day I have strived to develop myself and become a better me than I was the day before. I have gone through great changes and it feels fantastic, but I still have a long way to go. I keep working on myself every day. I honestly think you will never be “done” developing yourself. You are never “fully there”. There is always room for improvement.
And like Zig Ziglar said: “People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” I think that sums it up pretty neatly.
Today is the last day of specific lessons that I share from our recent event in Denver. The Empower Network(and Big Idea Mastermind) event was a huge success. I am strongly encouraging my entire team that next time we should all go. There is nothing better for your development than going to the event, meeting other like-minded people and learn new aspects of yourself and the business. NEXT EVENT WE GO ON STAGE TOGETHER(to pick up our paychecks:))!
Vick Strizheus said to start with yourself. Talk to yourself as who you are, a leader. You are a leader of yourself and you have to act like it. There is no other person that can control your thoughts and your emotions. Only you. And you have to be a good leader!
Justin Verrengia had a very touching speech for us on Saturday. Both him and his wife are excellent speakers and I don’t think there were many dry eyes left in the room when they finished. The passion and vision this couple share is impressive. One of the most important things I got from this speech(but I got a lot and I can’t repeat it all cause I wouldn’t do it justice), is that you should not compete against and compare yourself to others… ONLY compare yourself to YOU. Try to be a better person today than you were yesterday. Be the change you want to see in the world!
I have a big vision myself and it comes in many layers. I was born and raised in Washington, DC and my mother and I were not of the wealthiest households on the block. I am forever thankful to my mom and her ability to “find a way”. One of the things she pulled together was getting me decent dental care. She saw the importance in this and so do I. It’s great to smile a big confident smile to the world. I want to help young kids growing up in my old community so they can get free dental care – 1. for health reasons 2. for confidence reasons.

I decided to step away from my rerun of Think and Grow Rich blog posts today and just talk to you a little more on what this is all about.
I would love for you to also get the blog system and we can keep on working with our mindsets together and building our minds stronger.
The Empower Network blog system is only $25 and you get SO much more than a blog… The best part of it to me is the 8 core commitments – high quality detailed success blueprints. SO worth your time!
Anyways, hope you like this! I will continue on my Think and Grow Rich reruns tomorrow. For those of you not sure what the 303030 Challenge is you can find it right HERE.
