My entire life has been dedicated to discovering the secrets to success
The majority of my life has been in search of why some people achieve amazing success and others, who appear to be smarter or have more talent, fail, or never come close to achieving their potential. Today we dive into the secrets to success you need to achieve your desired goal.
Why is it that some people become wealthy, healthy, and happy, and others struggle their entire life. My findings are published in my second book, The 7 Principles of Becoming a Millionaire for Life.
While there are numerous secrets to success, today I share with you several that are critical for you to incorporate into your life.

Evaluate Your Beliefs
The key to success begins with beliefs. We all have beliefs – some serve us, others don’t. “I don’t have time to complete these activities” is a belief (assuming you also operate on a 24-hour day). The reality is you can’t afford not to make things such as your health, and ultimately, your life a priority. By exercising and eating, better you will have more energy and stamina to grow your business. Evaluating your beliefs and then replacing those that no longer serve you will help with almost any challenge.
Activities Vs. Results
The mindset to achieve success focuses on the activities required to achieve results.
Successful people understand the importance of setting goals and identifying HVAs (high value activities). When identifying your goals, include every aspect of your life: personal, professional, financial, spiritual, social, etc. Just as we wouldn’t want to sit on a three legged chair, if we wanted to remain sitting, we don’t want to create a three legged life either! That is why you must balance your goals in order to balance your life.
Successful people are meticulous about spending the majority of their time completing their HVAs (high value activities) and IPAs (income producing activities) which are critical to achieving their goals and making their dreams a reality. Interestingly, their less successful counterparts often work more hours while producing significantly less results. This is because their time is spent on LVAs (low value activities) that should be delegated to an assistant or NVAs (non-value activities) that should be eliminated.
While LVAs make us feel busy, they are time wasters and do very little to help us achieve our dreams – so make sure you are spending only a minimal amount of time on them! And while rest and relaxation are critical, spending mindless hours watching television is not.
Another difference of successful people is that they focus on the activities that will generate results, not the results themselves. They track and measure their results to determine the changes they need to make in their daily activities so that they can generate the results they desire to achieve.
Operating at Peak Performance
Critical habits to operate at peak performance include getting adequate sleep, remaining hydrated, eating a healthy diet, and exercising. Studies show that you can increase your odds of sticking to an exercise regimen by up to 95% simply by exercising first thing in the morning. After conducting my own research on exercise for our performance mastermind academy, I began exercising every morning for 60-75 minutes. It is such a part of my life that when I miss it, I feel completely out of sorts. The best news is that I have more energy and am in better shape than when I was in my 20’s!
One of the most important secrets to success is to FOCUS. When we focus and commit to achieve a goal and then continue working towards it, we dramatically increase our odds of making it a reality. Another interesting thing happens when we focus and commit, our attention shifts to achieving the goal instead of the challenges that may come our way. And if challenges do show up, as they often will, they don’t deter us from our goal.
Another key component to the success mindset is accountability. While we all know we need to be accountable, holding ourselves accountable can be a challenge. In my research, few people have the discipline to do this effectively. For example, when we brought our Marketing System to market, we offered it as a stand-alone product. People bought it and were able to study and implement it at their own pace. During this same time, we began personally coaching a few people who had purchased the system. We began to see amazing results including 18-year top producer having their best income month of their career within three months, and other producers doubling their revenue in one quarter. Because we didn’t have time to personally coach the thousands of people who were purchasing the system, we knew we had to do something to support our other members. The result was the creation of The Millionaire Insider™ Academy and PMA360 (our Performance Mastermind Academy). This community as well as live coaching and Q&A calls that hold them accountable is the number one reason for the results our members have experienced.
While I knew this group mastermind coaching community approach would be helpful, the results have been beyond my wildest dreams! So whatever you are currently doing to achieve your goals, make sure it includes an element of accountability and a system to keep you on track to achieving your goal.
Most people agree that a positive attitude is critical to achieve success. That being said, one of the most intriguing aspects of a positive attitude is what I refer to as the ‘attractor factor’. When a person is upbeat, positive, and enjoyable to be around, others want what they are offering. Individuals with a can-do attitude have mastered a key component of the Success Mindset.
