Wouldn’t it be great if you could just lay out a system to create more success, happiness, and fulfillment in your life?

Well, that’s what I’m going to give you.

And how do I know?

Because after 15 years of applying this simple formula has transformed my life.

First, a little back story.

Like many Americans, I struggled financially, and while I was making decent money as a union electrician, I wasn’t enjoying my day-to-day life as much as I could be.

There was something missing.

Don’t get me wrong, the bills were getting paid, I was blessed to be…

What is the key to success?

If you look around, you are surrounded by it.

It’s as simple as this, see what most people are doing and do something different.


Simple as that.

The Science Behind Being Different

Do you remember the last time you were uncomfortable?

What did you do?

If you’re like most people, your amygdala took over and your response to the uncomfortable situation led to worry, anxiety, maybe even fear.

Most of us do not like feeling uncomfortable and when we do, what do we do?

We “circle the wagons.”

We pull ourselves in.

And worst of all, we stop…

It seems as individuals, we cannot stop making comparisons as we go through life.

Good or bad, right or wrong, winning or losing.

There’s a voice in your head. A non-stop chattering, judging, being critical noise.

This voice of yours basically does one of two things, on the one hand, it helps you to feel good about you and your life compared to those who are worse off than you.

But, more often than not, it does the reverse, that voice compares you to others who seem to be doing better and makes you feel poorly on where you are…

“Your problem is not your problem.”

Do you want to create more success in your life?

Do you want to feel safe and secure with a partner you love?

Do you want to stop struggling in the day-to-day grind?

What would that all look like for you?

What do you want?

When I ask my clients that question, many of them respond with a litany list of complaints and negative situations going on in their lives.

I pause them and repeat the question, “Sorry, I didn’t ask what you don’t want, I asked you what you do want in life.”

What do you want in life?

What do you want?

Sendhil Mullainathan Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos

Recently, you may have noticed that Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk have been locked in a back and forth race for the wealthiest man on the planet.

And while that may make for great clickbait headlines, it takes away from the main point and, in some ways, creates more harm than help.

For many people, comparisons don’t help us to feel good. In fact, research has shown that since the advent of social media, unhappiness and depression have increased due to the perception of other people having happier lives via their posts.

So, instead of using comparisons to feel good…

Your brain is truly amazing.

Inside your skull is a supercomputer composed of over 100 billion neurons with roughly 1 quadrillion synaptic connections.

That’s 1,000,000,000,000,000 ways that your brain interacts within itself, your body, and your environment!

Your brain weighs roughly 3 pounds, that’s about 2% of an average healthy adult BUT uses almost 20% of the energy-producing glucose that you’re body takes in.

That’s why it sometimes hurts to think, you’re literally burning calories like a furnace.

Your brain is a powerhouse of potential!


If it’s so powerful, why are we so bad at using it?

You Use Your Brain Incorrectly

“The willing horse is always overworked.” — Charles Darwin

Pause for…

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,

One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them,

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie

You want to be more productive.

You want to be more successful.

And you want to be able to…

In over 30 years as a commercial and industrial electrician in Los Angeles, I’ve been able to work on some iconic projects.

What if you run your life like a CEO runs his company?

And no, I don’t mean being an autocratic tyrant dictating edicts from on high?

I mean, what if you were a compassionate visionary leader who had a mission, servicing customers who love you and your product, and maybe even had stakeholders who were invested in your long-term success?

Humble beginnings…

I mean, what if you took extreme ownership of your life in the same way a visionary leader takes his little garage-based business to become a global leader? Think Apple or Amazon.

How did would your life be?

I hate Nike’s slogan, “Just Do It!”

It’s a crock of crap.

It’s a marketing slogan that doesn’t take reality into account.

They say it so that you feel bad about your life, then you’ll buy their stuff, hoping that you will feel better.

Pithy slogan, nothing more.

The fact of the matter is, you can’t just do it. And the research backs it up.

Willpower Is Not Enough

We all get exhausted sometimes.

We are all affected by what is called willpower depletion.

Sure, you’re full of willpower, spunk, and…
