Today I speak about getting rid of the bullshit that sometimes clouds your thoughts. It can be difficult to realize how much BS is being spread in our day to day activities.
What’s important to recognize is what you’re actually putting into your brain on a daily basis.
Are you putting good information into your mind on a daily basis or putting junk into your mind?
I would love to share with you some resources that I’m using that are allowing me to put the “good stuff” into my mind to help me grow as a person.

This video is about YOU… not about me.
So if you’ve been struggling to get started with the whole online marketing thing, this will help you get un-stuck.
It’ll help you get out of your own way and on your way to creating videos on a daily basis to help you grow as a person and to help you grow your business.
Be sure to pay close attention to what I’m saying in the video and take IMMEDIATE action on doing the little assignment I give ya. It will help you as I know it has helped myself and countless others.
The other night I spent about an hour and a half playing around with my little cousin Nathan and my mind was completely refreshed and rejuvenated.
It’s so important to take a break from doing work from time to time and just play. Go outside, swing on a swingset or go ride rides at a theme park. Do something that’s going to amp you up and take your mind off of the business.
You’ll come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!
If you don’t believe me, watch this video from Stuart Brown, the author of the book Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul
From a leading expert, a groundbreaking book on the science of play, and its essential role in fueling our happiness and intelligence throughout our lives
I want you to think back about the last time you saw that look of pure happiness on the face of a child who was playing in the school yard. Or maybe the pure joy of a yellow lab racing across a lawn after a ball. This is the joy of play.
By definition, play is purposeless, all-consuming and fun.
In this book by Dr Stuart Brown, you realize that it is anything but trivial. It is a biological drive that we all have that is as important to our general well being and health as sleep and/or nutrition. As humans, we are designed by nature to thrive when we play.
But here’s the problem….
Not many people take the time to actually learn about the importance of play. Even fewer actively pursue doing something that they consider playful or playing. I want you to think back on the last time that you actually took time out of your day to do something for the pure joy of doing it.
Maybe it was you were walking down the street and started giving everyone high fives, or maybe for you it’s nailing a three pointer in your buddies face while playing pick-up basketball. Seriously, think about this.
How does it make you feel?
It’s my guess that you probably get a shit-eating grin on your face and are thinking “damn, I did something awesome!”
I know how I felt when I finally won a hot wheels race car race against my 3 year old cousin….even though he insists that he won every single race.
and guess what else?
I felt REFRESHED, REJUVENATED and ALIVE!
How often in your life do you feel any of those things?
Now here’s where the fun comes in for me. I’m going to challenge you to find some time in the next 7 days to just play.
To do something for the sole purpose of playing, no other reason.
After you’re done, I want you to comment below on what you did and how it made you feel.
Is that a deal?
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.

Earlier today I walked down into town to grab some lunch with my friends Cole and Max.
As you know, I absolutely love business and marketing and when we were walking back we came across a situation that taught a valuable business lesson…
Do you see a lot of people walking by this guy?
There wasn’t a lot of people who walk along this street, but it does happen to be on the walk back to my house here in Valle Escondido so we happened to be walking along the street.
Get this, about 2 blocks the opposite way is where downtown Boquete is. There’s people walking all over the place visiting shops, enjoying the weather and just waiting to buy some ice cream because it was a beautiful day!
Yet this guy was perched up here on this street with no people on it (except us).
This is something that a lot of people tend to do when it comes to building a business…especially an online business.
You’ve got to GET IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE!
If you don’t have people walking into your store, or visiting your website you are not going to make any sales and that means no money!
I don’t know about you, but I like money. *cue voice from Idiocracy*
It can be very difficult for people to start getting traffic to their website when they first get started with marketing their business online. I know for me, I had a hell of a time trying to figure it all out.
Luckily, I ended up learning how to do it and now drive a LOT of traffic to websites so I can make a lot of money, which makes me happy happy happy like Phil from Duck Dynasty.
The only true tip I could give for this guy selling ice cream at the slowest street in town is to head back into town and start getting in front of the people!
The ice cream was only $0.75 and was delicious! It was the first time I ever had coconut ice cream and damn was it tasty!
Check out some of the pictures below and see the little machine he was selling this out of.
