What Can Napoleon Hill Teach You About Success?

The Importance of a Mastermind

 

Hey guys Chris Hughes here live from Boquete, Panama and I just wanted to show you the view here and I wanted to talk with you about something that Napoleon Hill originally spoke about in the book, Think and Grow Rich.

 

This video is going to be about forming a mastermind, which is basically a group of like-minded people to challenge you and elevate you to the next level and to become a better person. As well as to improve yourself and in the case of my mastermind, make more money.

 

You see, about a month and a half ago I really took the idea of a mastermind seriously and I took action and formed a mastermind with some of my closest Entrepreneurial friends.

 

This took place on a trip to Costa Rica and we all decided that it would be very beneficial for us all if we challenged each other, encouraged each other and shared resources that were helping us.

 

It was basically put together to force us to step out of our comfort zone and become better.

 

Now what happened was a little mind boggling…at least to me anyway.

 

I tripled my income and a couple of the guys in the group started taking their business seriously (now that the ego got involved) and they really started to do work.

 

Some of the other guys noticed that this put them on the path to ultimately get to where they wanted to be.

 

I really just wanted to share the importance of it because when I first learned about it, I did not take it seriously at all and I really missed out on a huge opportunity to grow.

 

My ego had gotten in the way and I thought that I knew better than Napoleon Hill and didn’t need to use his little success tips. Damn ego..

 

Now one of the biggest things I’ve noticed about this mastermind is that if you are truly struggling with something and you let other people in your mastermind know, they can help you overcome the obstacle.

 

Whether something isn’t paying off yet, or you have that little thing in your head telling you that you can’t do it, these guys/gals can help you break through.

 

It’s really a valuable lesson to actually create one of these masterminds because you’ll have people around you who want you to succeed.

 

You are probably aware and have noticed that a lot of people who you speak to about your business or your goals do not care about them.

 

Now what you want to do is start to find like-minded people to form a mastermind with you. Find people who are at the same level as you, or are just above your income right now.

 

Finding people like this forces you to become comfortable with where you’re at and it forces you to challenge each other to become more… plus, you can talk shit to your friends if you beat them in the mini challenges you guys come up with.

 

You can form a little facebook group and make it private if you aren’t in the same town/state/country. That’s what we’ve done with my private group. We’re all over the world but we keep in touch via facebook and meeting up around the world.

Watch this video from a Waterfall Lagoon on Lago Escondido

Check out this video I recorded with some friends here while I’m on Lago Escondido here in Boquete, Panama.

This was a ton of fun and I’ve had a huge blast while visiting here in Boquete.

Become Your Own Role Model

Become Your Own Role Model

[qbt-button image=”marketing@@amazon@@amazonButton2.png” align=”center” width=”388px” type=”link” url=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1451667531/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wchblog-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1451667531″ target=”_self”]

I came across this quote:

Beginning today, set an intention and a relentless focus on living your life as the greatest person you can be, in all situations. Demand that you demonstrate a strength of character in such a way that you find pride in who you are, and that others see you as a role model.

in the book The Charge by Brendon Burchard and had to share it.

In this video I talk about becoming your own personal role model and why it’s important to do things that others can look up to.

Find Good Role Models

It’s important to find role models that are living the type of life that you want to be living in a few years. Try to find people who truly embody what you aspire to be and start to learn about their daily habits.

What do these people do on a daily basis that allows them to have this sort of level of success?

Do they watch TV?

Do they read a book a week?

Do they exercise 5-7 times a week?

For my mentors they don’t watch much tv, read about a book a week and exercise daily. These are all habits that I work on developing and have had a major impact on my health and overall happiness.

Find Pride In Who You Are

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
– Dr. Seuss

While you may think Dr. Seuss is only for kids, he has instilled in us a lot of valuable lessons.

When you learn to take pride in who you are, you will start to align with more people who are like you.

You will be able to communicate with people on a different level and have more meaningful relationships with people. You’ll be able to truly connect with these people.

There is an exercise that will help you find your true “core identity” and it’s by one of my business mentors. Good ole Frank Kern.

This is from his Core Influence product and has had a major impact on my life. It’s long, but worth a watch if you have the time.
(Let’s be honest, you can make time)

The Secret: The Optimists Creed

I was messing around on pinterest earlier today and came across the image of what I found out is called “The Optimists Creed”.

So I did what any normal person would do…

I decided to record myself saying it and share it with you.

That’s normal.

Well…at least in my world. 🙂

If you want to see the actual post, check it out on Pinterest here.

What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?

I just read the article on Tim Ferriss‘ blog Playing B-Ball with Obama: 6 Steps to Crossing Anything Off Your Bucket List and learned about the guys over at The Buried Life.

Watch this quick:

I’ve gotta admit, this is awesome. These guys are doing something big and are doing something great for the world. I admire people who do this kind of stuff and love seeing people like these guys experience success.

They are all about accomplishing the big things on your bucket list. I’m a huge fan of this because I have a lot of things on my list that I will accomplish.

One of the biggest things on my bucket list is to positively impact the lives of over 1 million people. Crazy, right?

 Ninety-nine percent of people believe they can’t do great things, so they aim for mediocrity.

I say f*** mediocrity. I’m only on this planet for a limited time and I’m going to do big things.

While I still have a lot of work to do to make a significant change, I’m knocking things off my list. This year I’ve written a book, improved my golf game, donated to great causes and I’m working with a company that’s going to make a huge difference in the lives of teens with Tollie International.

I plan on doing a lot more of these things and plan on doing things like help build a house, travel the world and mentor a young entrepreneur.

what do you want to do before you die

The guys at The Buried Life have a book available that you can buy. It’s only $11 and you can buy it on Amazon.

These guys are absolutely hilarious as well. Check out some of the funny videos they’ve created to promote the book below:
