Best Day to Change

Happy February 1st. You can just as easily change your life today as you could have on New Year’s Day.

If the year hasn’t started as well as you had hoped, Brian Tracy is here to help you hit the reset button and plan out the next 11 months to make this an amazing year. You’re getting a 2nd chance. You can still do it. Carve out some time this weekend to take Brian Tracy’s advice below. You can still make 2013 your best year ever. The best time for a second chance is right now.


“New opportunity is matter of choice not calendar.” – Dan Kennedy

If you need some help with success, here's a list of secrets from a book called, "The Richest Man in Town". These tips apply to all areas of life, not just making money.

In RMIT, the author interviews the richest person in 50 of America’s largest cities, and they give a no-fluff account of the traits that allowed them to get incredibly wealthy.

They include…

1) Owning their own business (“stop working for the man as soon as you can”, they all said)

2) Working a lot (at least 60 hours per week)

3) Focusing on VALUE creation, not making money

4) Focusing on their unique talents and abilities and delegating everything else

5) Partnering only with those who bring something critical to the table

6) Getting addicted to ambition

7) Persistence. Never giving up. In fact, most of them believe that persistence is the ONLY reason they have gotten farther ahead in life than other people.

Not talent.

Not luck.

But simple persistence.

Stay strong and keep on pushing!

Here's a politically incorrect piece of Tough Love advice:

“An hour of effective, precise, hard, disciplined – and integrated thinking can be worth a month of hard work. Thinking is the very essence of, and the most difficult thing to do in business and in life. Empire builders spend hour-after-hour on mental work…while others party. If you’re not consciously aware of putting forth the effort to exert self-guided integrated thinking…if you don’t act beyond your feelings and instead take the path of least resistance, then you give in to laziness, make bad decisions and no longer control your life.” – Kekich Credo #44

"You can change mind-set, no matter how set, through the power of your own thinking, and through the power of association and implementation." – Dan Kennedy

I was curious about what you program uses as weights. I see you with kettle bells, is that what you recomend? I became familiar with you through Simon Black's latest newsletter.

Hi Dennis, I have programs that use barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, and bodyweight. All are effective. It depends on someone's goals, equipment availability, etc, etc. Check out this free program -
