Growth to Freedom™ - Transform Your Life, Business, and Relationships with Clarity, Confidence, and Direction

The Growth to Freedom™ Show helps you transform your life in business and in relationships. It’s a fresh mix of strategy, resources, and entertainment that guides you to create the personal and business breakthroughs you need. Your success and freedom will only grow to the extent you do, and The Growth to Freedom™ Show will help you find clarity, confidence, and direction. Two weeks after my son was born in 2007, I found myself in a hospital for four days with a serious heart problem. The fact is, I had let my health go to the extent that my body gave out. It was a major wakeup call. That experience opened a new door of awareness for me. I came to realize that if I wanted something different, I needed to do something different. If I wanted something better, I needed to do it better. We’re living at one of the most exciting times in history and I believe you can have freedom on your terms. You can have it all, if you’re willing to take the necessary steps. It’s not easy. I’ve certainly made my share of mistakes and I want to help you avoid those on your own journey. This show was born as part of my process and was inspired by Joe Polish, Genius Network, and many mentors I’m fortunate to call friends. It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you’ve been: It only matters that you want to grow. Whatever your definition of success, I will challenge, guide, and connect you to some of the best leaders and experts in the world today. Now is your time - you deserve it! The catalyst for greatness is inside of you, and it starts now with Growth to Freedom!

What if I told you that there are 3 main areas that you could improve that would make your life a masterpiece?

You might say that I’m crazy, but you would be wrong. Craig Ballantyne has discovered 3 specific areas that every person can address that will make them better in every area. It’s true. The 3 words that define those areas are Control, Conquer, and Concentrate - and on this episode of Growth to Freedom Craig Ballantyne is going to unpack them for you.

As he does, look carefully at your own life - and be honest. Which of the rules that Craig shares is most difficult for you to swallow? Maybe that’s the area you need to target first. This episode is not meant to give you more content, it’s meant to help you make real change in your life. Take some time, listen, and take action with what you learn.

What keeps you from taking action on your number one priority in life?

Craig Ballantyne says that nothing has to keep you from accomplishing the most important things in your life. You can make it happen one small step at a time. The way he suggests you do it is by getting up 15 minutes earlier each morning so you can work on that one thing. Think about it. The house is quiet. Nobody to bother you. Your attention can be focused on that one thing.

And when you do that morning after morning, week after week, you begin to make progress. It’s a sure fire way to accomplish the most important thing in your life. And it’s simple.

That’s just one strategy for making your life a masterpiece that Craig Ballantyne shares on this episode of Growth to Freedom. Be sure you listen, but more importantly, be sure you take action on what you learn. You don’t need more content, you need more application.

What if I told you that you don’t have to endure lots of pain and hardship in order to get to the place you want to be? How would that change your attitude about today, tomorrow, and the weeks ahead?

On today’s show, I’m chatting with my friend Dr Cristy Lopez about the myth we’ve all been told, that you can’t get the things you really want in life unless you go through pain to get there. To be blunt: I don’t buy it.

Why do I have to wait to experience joy and happiness in life simply because I haven’t reached the pinnacle of success that I’m shooting for? And why does the climb to that pinnacle have to be done in pain? It doesn’t! …And on this episode Dr. Lopez and I are going to walk you through why that train of thought is a lie. We’ll introduce you to a 3 step framework (3 questions) that can help you identify the key components you need in order to live your best life now.

Who are you? What do you want? What do you stand for?

Those three questions form the foundation of the 3 part framework Dr. Lopez and I unpack on this episode. They are the questions Dr. Lopez confronted me with years ago that opened the door to me experiencing more joy and happiness regularly.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Welcome you and the introduction to today’s show; [0:31]
  • Why this topic is so important; [1:23] Who is Dr. Cristy Lopez? [2:30]
  • What research shows about delayed gratification; [2:53]
  • The myth that pain has to precede gain; [5:00]
  • The problem with “mortgaging the pain?” [7:46]
  • What Dr. Lopez has discovered about “And VS Or”; [9:58]
  • The 3 step framework; [14:10]
  • Who am I? What do I want? What do I stand for? [17:40]
  • Discovering who you are; [25:50]
  • How to get in touch with Dr. Cristy Lopez; [32:30]

What would happen if you could double the amount of sales you made - with the same number of leads? What would that mean to you, your family, and your company?

More importantly, what would that mean for your customers?

I used to think that sales was difficult. At times I thought to be successful at sales, I’d have to be pushy or overbearing. However, once I began studying the true nature of sales and understanding that it’s about helping people and adding value to their lives, sales has become something I love to do.

You can improve your ability to influence, persuade and sell - and today I’m going to show you how.

Truth be told, I didn’t invent any of this. This episode features insights from the study and trial and error over the last 22 years. In this episode I reveal a relatively simple multi-step process you can put in place to consistently generate more sales.

You’ve got to understand the sales process before you can be good at it.

Every sales presentation is made up of a number of “sections or steps.”

What are those sections?

The introduction, The Why, The Walk Through, The Price, The Guarantee, Testimonials, and The Ask.

Each step leads the candidate from interest to commitment.

It all starts with great preparation. That means you’ve got to do your homework before you go to the sales appointment. What are the prospect’s needs and desires? What are the risks they’d be taking by using your solution? How can you answer each of those risks effectively and meet their needs and desires?

Doing your homework up front and anticipating their needs will give you a competitive advantage. It gives you the tools to ask the right questions to help get them to like, trust, and respect you - to shift from a sales pest to welcome guest; to position you as a trusted, knowledgeable advisor.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Dan’s welcome to you and the introduction to today’s show; [0:33]
  • The E.L.F. sales approach and how you can model it; [0:42]
  • What IS sales? [1:15]
  • What’s at stake? What would happen if your sales quotient increased? [4:44]
  • 7 Steps to More Sales; The introduction: what is it? [6:16]
  • The Why: Why you are talking to them (preparation is key here); [7:20]
  • The Walk Through: How to walk through your services with a prospect; [12:16]
  • Price: How to position your product and service to be free; [13:30]
  • Guarantee: The way you make it an irresistible offer; [16:07]
  • Testimonials: Social proof to demonstrate your competence; [18:00]
  • Questions: Answering the responses your prospect has; [19:10]

Are you playing full out or are you hiding out?

Playing full out is confidence in who you are and what unique contribution you bring to your industry and the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re providing the same type of things to your niche as others, what matters is YOUR unique approach or spin on the subject. When you get clear on that, you’re able to play full out, with abandon, and make your maximum contribution. It’s your magic that makes it work…

“You can still the idea, but you can’t still the magic”. -Walt Disney

On the other hand, hiding out is what many of us do when we’re afraid, discouraged, or in a down state.

What are we afraid of? Many times it’s dealing with doubt around: “What if I’m not good enough? What if I fail? What if the resources I have are not adequate?”

When we allow those questions to saddle us with fear we play small, we hide out, and miss the opportunity to contribute at our very best!

This episode is aimed to help you ask the questions that can help you identify where you’re at - whether you’re hiding out or playing full out, and what to do to move yourself forward in confidence, certainty, and clarity.

The main thing holding you back is: YOU and The first progress starts by telling the truth.

- Anonymous

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

What would it be worth to you if you could conquer the voices of doubt… or the voice that may tell you you’re not good enough?

My guest on today’s episode is Dr. Cristy Lopez and she’s going to share the P.E.A.C.E. process to mindfulness and living in the present - and what that means for you is more growth, significance, and impact.

Too often we spend the bulk of our energy focusing on things that are external to us, things that are outside our control. Things like other people, situations, worries and fears. When we do that we’re using our most precious commodities, time and energy, to lead ourselves down a path that is not only unhelpful, but also destructive.

Today Dr. Cristy Lopez shows us what we can do to get our mind off the things that we can’t control by learning to live mindfully in the present moment, even if that moment is something we’d define as “bad.”

It is what it is. That’s not such a bad way of looking at life.

She does that by sharing her “P.E.A.C.E.” approach to mindfulness. Those letters stand for - Physiology, emotions, actions, cognition, and extrasensory - and she walks us through each of those areas, explaining what it means and it’s vital that you learn how to put them into practice to help set you free from negative or limiting thought patterns and also to set you up for greater things in the future.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Acceptance VS Settling, Mindfulness and more (Introduction); [0:33]
  • Why I feel this is a very important distinction to make in your life; [1:07]
  • What do I mean, acceptance VS settling? [2:07]
  • How perfectionism or “I’m not good enough” holds you back; [3:50]
  • Using gratitude to battle mediocrity and perfectionism; [6:10]
  • What IS mindfulness? [8:48]
  • Why “It is what it is” - is a great mindset (acceptance); [10:56]
  • Practices to stay more in the present and in a place of acceptance; [12:28]
  • Why Dr. Lopez recommends using meditation to be more present; [13:36]
  • Using the PEACE process of mindfulness: Physiology, emotions, actions, cognition, and extrasensory; [14:30]
  • Practices I use each day to remain present and mindful; [17:51]
  • How you can receive my free gift to you; [20:05]

What would happen if you were able to emotionally detach from the outcomes of any situation? What’s the difference between detachment and disconnection?

Think about it. How often are you invested personally in the response someone gives you (personally or professionally)? Or how often have you been attached to the outcome of a sales presentation or meeting?

Here’s the truth… If you’re too focused on the outcomes you’ll find yourself jump-frogging from one thing to another in a vain effort to gain false self acceptance and recognition.

Today’s episode is a conversation I had with my friend, Dr. Cristy Lopez about the importance of detachment. Frankly, it’s something I’ve had a hard time with over the years and with a shift in focus, you will get greater confidence, peace, and clarity and what that means is you can stay more in the present moment - enjoying the things that matter!

This can help you in powerful ways if you apply it, so I invite you to listen, take notes, and take action on what you learn.

If you put your focus on personal growth and contribution, things change dramatically.

What if you were able to focus on being your BEST YOU? What would happen if you focused on contribution in everything you do with your family, community, church, and work?

Dr. Cristy Lopez says that when you can make that mindset shift you’ll find yourself living a more centered, present life in the moments of every day and your stress and anxiety levels will diminish. That’s because you’ll be working on the things that you can change rather than investing your emotional energy and focus in things that you can’t change.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Intro to the show - Dr Cristy Lopez; [0:33]
  • Why life is a game of adjustments, just like sports; [2:20]
  • What is a healthy way to think of “detachment?” [3:20]
  • What it means to be detached from that perfect outcome; [4:10]
  • How to detach from outcomes properly when focusing on goals; [5:30]
  • Why it’s poison to live by a checklist of performance; [7:48]
  • Better ways to trigger the right responses; [9:45]
  • The importance of progress and contribution in becoming detached from outcomes; [11:10]
  • Why you need to understand the difference from detachment and disconnection; [15:00]
  • How people can use adversity to drive them forward; [17:09]
  • The role anger can sometimes play in fueling positive progress; [17:45]
  • Action steps to take; [19:44]

What would happen for you if you had greater clarity, confidence, and “Charm”?

Would you get more business deals? Would you have greater opportunities to find that special someone? Would you be sought out, more successful, or even happier?

Today we dive into the strategies Jordan teaches including identifying the 4 main personality archetypes he’s seen in his studies and how each of them impacts a person’s quality of living, their relationships, and their career.

Intrigued? I think you’ll want to hear this one.

Here’s a simple, actionable thing you can do right now to improve the way others perceive you.

One of the intriguing things Jordan has discovered is that every person assesses every other person the moment they walk into the room. In nanoseconds their minds are evaluating, making judgments, and coming to conclusions about this person they haven’t even met yet. You might be disturbed by that fact, but you’d be better off learning how to use it to your advantage.

On this episode Jordan Harbinger shares some of his best tips regarding what you can do the moment you enter a room to get people to assess you more positively, think better of you, and make conclusions that are to your advantage rather than to your disadvantage. It’s only one of the many lessons Jordan shares with us on this episode. I invite you to listen, learn, and apply what Jordan will show you.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • What would happen if you had more clarity on WHO you are? [1:00]
  • The 4 personality archetypes for greater confidence, clarity, and direction; [2:23]
  • Why Jordan began his work with “The Art of Charm.” [13:31]
  • What Jordan considers to be his “superpower.” [20:10]
  • The benefits Jordan received from growing up in the Midwest; [22:15]
  • The future; [24:04]
  • The biggest challenge most people face (when building charm); [25:57]
  • How you can get in touch with Jordan; [33:51]
  • The things Jordan is working on now; [35:27]
  • What Jordan wants to be known for; [37:30]
  • And more...

What could happen in your future if you could make your past work for you? It’s an incredible thought, isn’t it?

Today’s guest, Tony Grebmeier has lived that story and continues to live it day by day as he seeks to add blessings and benefit to the lives of those he meets. On this episode of Growth to Freedom, Tony shares his powerful story of personal failure, addiction and the road back to wholeness. It’s a story that traverses many highs and lows and ends with a man on fire to bring help to those who are ready to help themselves.

This is one of those inspiring stories that could turn someone’s life around, so make sure you not only listen to it yourself, but share it with others as well.

Everything I have is a byproduct of me admitting that I need help ~ Tony Grebmeier

Tony recognizes that his fast track to the bottom was precipitated by his unwillingness to allow others into his life. The way he says it is that he “spent a lifetime pushing people away.” But once he came to the realization that he needed the help of others and that many people had been placed into his life to BE that help, he began to make the long climb upward.

Now he is at a place few entrepreneurs reach: co-founder of an Inc. 500 company (Ship Offers) and fiercely focused on adding value and blessing to the lives of everyone he meets. Tony’s story is an example of what can happen when you begin connecting with people on deep levels and allowing those who care about you to speak truth into your life.

Be sure to pass this story along to others. As much as any conversation you’ve heard on Growth to Freedom, this one has the potential to truly change the lives of those who might need it most right now, and you can be an instrument of that change through sharing it. Thanks for caring.

What if I told you that almost everything you’ve learned about passive income models isn’t true?

Would you like to know the powerful question my coach asked me this week?

It was a question that changed the way I look at my life overall and the efforts I’m making in business. Here’s what he asked me…

“What are you REALLY committed to?”

Think about that word, commitment. It’s nothing more than deciding what you want and taking action that ensure you will get it. It’s that simple. His question made me realize that in some areas of my life I had not defined what I wanted clearly enough… and it’s time to take action!

The difference between a dream and a commitment is the action you take.

We’ve all had dreams at one time or another, and dreams are wonderful things to have. Dreams without action are nothing more than wishes that will never come true. It takes the commitment to take action to bring dreams into reality.

Your dreams are not going to fall into your lap from the sky. They aren’t going to just happen. You’ve got to make them happen by committing yourself to a course of action that will result in those dreams materializing in your life. And it all begins with a question: What are you REALLY committed to?

That question answered, will help you define the things that you believe are truly WORTH your commitment, time, effort, and energy. It’s the first step toward seeing great accomplishments happen in your life.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Dan’s welcome to you and the introduction to today’s show; [0:33]
  • A key question for you to ask yourself; [0:56]
  • How I realized that I was going to do something different; [3:46]
  • What are things you started but didn’t finish? [6:03]
  • My personal commitments: to serve as an example for you; [8:37]
  • What can you be committed to for the next 25 years? [10:33]
  • What’s the most productive thing you could be doing at this moment? [11:13]
  • What I’ve learned from trying to add value to people; [15:08]
  • How you can put the 1% approach into practice - for free; [18:23]

What would happen in your life, business, and relationships if you could be your most productive self?

Imagine it - every interaction, every transaction, and every conversation filled with the very best you have to give. No distractions. No divided attention. No half-hearted measures. The goal of today’s conversation is to give you some tools to help you eliminate the distractions that each of us face on a day to day basis. Today’s guest, Dr. Cristy Lopez, visited me in studio to share the tools that enable you to keep things simple, make better life choices, and maintain powerful focus. It’s all on this episode of Growth to Freedom.

Do you know the difference between being busy and being productive?

Most people don’t. Being busy can give you the feeling that you are being productive but it’s really an illusion. It’s often the case that busy people are spinning their wheels, not really getting anywhere.

Dr. Cristy Lopez is an expert in helping people recognize the patterns and habits that hold them back from maximizing their productivity in life, relationships, and business - and on this episode she shares the first steps toward recapturing your productive spark.

One of the first things you’ve got to determine is how you are going to deal with interruptions. Notice I didn’t say, “How you’re going to avoid interruptions,” because that’s not possible. You will always have people knocking on your door, calling you, emailing, interrupting - but what are you going to do to minimize the impact those inevitable interruptions have on your productivity?

Dr. Lopez says that it takes anywhere from 20 to 25 minutes for the average person to get back into a state of true productivity once they’ve been interrupted. That means it’s crucial that you know how to quickly deal with the distractions that come your way and get back into your productive state sooner.

And productivity is not just about business, it’s also needed in relationships.

When you are with your spouse or children, is your mind wandering or focused on things other than the precious time you have together in that moment? Don’t underestimate the importance of those relationships.. Dr. Lopez highlights some things you can do to help keep your mind undistracted during family time, on this episode, so be sure you take the time to listen.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll discover in this show:

  • The power of Productivity - introduction; [0:31]
  • What would happen if you could be your most productive self? [0:43]
  • Productive versus busy - what’s the difference? [2:23]
  • Serial interruptions and the challenge of productivity [7:56]
  • How disruptions detract from productivity and performance [9:20]
  • Productivity in your relationships [10:58]
  • How to do the most productive thing at any given moment [15:12]
  • Put a framework into place that helps you be productive. [17:45]
  • Your main concern should be who you are and how you want to live your life [18:38]
  • And more...

If it were possible to decrease the stress levels you experience in relationships by applying one principle, would you want to know what it was?

What if you could increase the amount of personal power you feel in your interactions and overcome barriers between you and the significant people in your life?

On today’s episode of Growth to Freedom I’m talking with my good friend Dr. Cristy Lopez about healthy boundaries.

Cristy is a clinical psychologist who has been helping people become more successful in their own lives, relationships, and businesses for over 20 years. In Cristy’s work with individuals she often sees her clients break through barriers and limitations, eliminate unhealthy ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior, and get on the path to a more successful and healthy life. Many times those changes come through the understanding and implementation of effective personal boundaries.

On this episode Cristy and I chat about the difference between barriers and boundaries, why knowing the difference is vital to healthy relationships, how you can set yourself up to win in relationships, why peace and safety are a direct result of healthy boundaries, overcoming the tendency to be a people pleaser, and so much more.

Toward the end of the show I issue a challenge to you, asking you to take the bold steps needed to develop even better relationship habits so that YOU can experience the peace, safety, and settledness of mind you deserve.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll walk away with from this interview:

  • Boundaries versus Barriers [0:32]
  • Who is Dr. Cristy Lopez? [1:40]
  • What do people do wrong in the area of boundaries? [2:38]
  • How can you set yourself up to win in relationships? [5:03]
  • Why letting go is so important - and so difficult. [6:55]
  • 3 basic questions to discover appropriate boundaries [7:50]
  • How assertiveness impacts the issue of proper boundaries [8:35]
  • The 3 types of “business” that impact boundaries [10:30]
  • How peace and safety come from healthy boundaries [11:20]
  • Strategies to overcome people-pleasing by creating boundaries [13:05]
  • How to navigate requests from others without falling prey to guilt [15:52]
  • Creating a healthy culture for yourself [19:35]
  • How you can connect with Dr. Cristy [20:23]
  • And more...

What if I told you that you could optimize your internal game, develop an invincible and indestructible mindset, and accomplish things in your performance and in your health that you never thought possible?

And what if I told you that you could do it with 3 step method that is simple, can be done at home, and that anyone can do?

On this episode of Growth to Freedom you're going to learn that and a whole lot more as I speak with Wim Hof. Wim is known as “The Iceman” because of the many world records he has broken in the realm of extreme cold endurance. He has hiked Mount Everest in nothing but his shorts and has taught many others to do similar feats. How is it possible? Wim has discovered a 3 step method that enables you to take control of your mindset and inner physiology to accomplish incredible things both physically and psychologically. Join me for this fascinating conversation on this episode of Growth to Freedom.

When Wim begin breaking World Records for extreme cold endurance he got the attention of the scientific community. Many prominent scientists approached him and wanted to look into his method and validate what he had been teaching was true. The result: a scientifically proven 3 step method that you can apply to shield disease, overcome depression and anxiety, destroy migraine headaches, and increase your personal performance.

NOTE & Disclaimer: We do not make any health or medical claims. You understand that if you follow Wim’s or anyone’s guidance you should do so under the guidance of your doctor. You are responsible for your results and always do your homework to verify that any possible solution in health or business can work for you. Just because it works for some people does NOT mean it will work for all. If you do nothing, you’ll also get the same - nothing. OK - I think that covers the legal disclaimer.

I know all of this sounds too good to be true, but according to Wim, it is scientifically proven. On this episode Wim shares the basics of these insights with us and provides a free resource that will enable you to get started developing your personal mindset, physical strength, and building a stronger YOU.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll walk away with from this interview:

  • The 3 Step Method for Personal Power; [0:30]
  • Who is Wim Hoff? [1:30]
  • How Wim got the attention of the scientific world; [9:46]
  • Wim’s 3-step method to shield disease: breathing, mindset, and cold exposure; [13:17]
  • Rebalancing depression through mental and physical training; [17:04]
  • Wim’s mission in the world; [18:55]
  • What a person can do when they are in a state of anxiety; [19:31]
  • The impact of cold exposure on changing the mind and body; [23:57]
  • How you can get access to Wim’s free course; [29:13] 
  • The one lesson Wim wants to pass on to his children; [29:56]
  • Wim’s lowest point: the loss of his wife - and how he endured it and transformed his life; [31:47]
  • Addressing obesity through breathing and body chemistry; [35:15]
  • And more...

Would you like to know how to package and present yourself or your offer to generate more leads, more sales, and more profits?

On this episode of Growth to Freedom that’s exactly what I’m going to show you. Once you see how simple it is, you’re going to be surprised that more people, including you, haven’t been doing this all along. It’s not a difficult process - it only takes 15 minutes of brainstorming with a pencil and paper - but it will yield long term results if you take it seriously and do the work.

The process I’m going to describe today begins with a series of simple questions that reveal the danger, needs, and desires of your ideal client.

These questions are designed to get you inside the head of that ideal client, the one who needs exactly what it is you have to offer. When you’re able to understand what they think about the problems, pains, and passions that drive them toward a solution like the one you offer, you’ll begin to see exactly what you need to say, how you need to approach them, and what you need to offer to generate the sale.

Today’s show will give you a road map that shows you the steps: How to position yourself and your product or service, how to communicate the value you offer, how to phrase your call to action, how to overcome objections, and how to ask for and get the sale.

It’s amazing what a few pointed questions can do, but you’re only going to see the results I’m promising if you take the time to actually do what I’m sharing with you: Get your pencil and paper, sit down, and walk yourself through these questions.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll get in this segment:

  • [0:31] How to get to the core of your clients desires;
  • [3:00] Dan Sullivan’s framework: The problem is not the problem, it’s how you think about the problem;
  • [3:20] The questions you need to ask yourself (and I didn’t come up with these) - for greater clarity, productivity, and conversions;
  • [4:15] Rethinking what you offer? (HINT: It’s not what you think it is);
  • [5:22] How to create Exponential Outcomes: What is it going to do for your clients overall?
  • [6:43] How to read your clients minds (market research);
  • [9:08] Identify your ideal client’s top 3 desires (and how you can uniquely fulfill it);
  • [10:15] What are the biggest reasons why your ideal client wants a solution?
  • [11:22] How to anticipate your client’s reason(s) for not buying - and convert more sales;
  • [13:00] Why a percentage of the people listening will not take action;
  • [14:00] How to craft your presentation in a compelling way;
  • [16:29] Why you need to come up with a “step” approach to your solution;
  • [17:23] The importance of a great call to action;
  • [19:08] If you do nothing, you’ll get nothing. How to get people to take action!
  • And more…

What if I told you that I’ve got a guaranteed way for you to lead and grow rich?

That’s the kind of statement that makes your skeptic radar go on full alert, doesn’t it? I’m going to tell you how to do exactly that in this episode. It’s not hype. It’s not wishful thinking. It’s not the typical goal-setting and productivity approach that you normally hear.

It’s all about “state”. It’s about knowing how to determine and regulate your own internal state of being and how to be a “state inducer” for others. Even if you only take one of the principles covered in this episode, you’re going to see a way to have a bigger impact, significance, and contribution.

What do I mean by determining your “state?”

We all have an internal state of being, a default attitude or mindset. It’s what dictates the way we live, the things we do, and how we handle the situations and challenges that life throws at us. And The great news is that no one gets to determine what that inner state is.

You get to be the CEO of you. You get to decide how you are going to think about and approach life. Your past impacts it for sure but it doesn’t have to be the deciding factor. You can take steps to overcome the limitations of your past and set a new course that will change the destiny of your life and increase the impact you can have in the world.

In this episode, you’ll discover how to develop your peak state and how to stay on track - even when it’s not easy from now on… and how you can Lead and Grow Rich.

Make sure to listen until the end, because on this episode of Growth to Freedom, there’s a very practical framework I provide and give you that you can install in your life - starting today.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • [0:33] The reason to lead;
  • [1:00] How to lead and grow rich;
  • [2:20] Success depends on state...your inner state;
  • [3:40] Getting clear on what you want - what state are you in right now? [5:00] How to overcome failure;
  • [7:00] Does failure derail you or set you up for success? (The choice is yours);
  • [10:25] What would have to happen for you to be the best leader you can be?
  • [13:30] The definition of leadership;
  • [16:54] What is a state inducer;
  • [20:00] An exercise for you to determine your non-negotiable leadership qualities;
  • And more...

How could your life change if you had a secondary passive income coming in every month?

What would it mean to you if you could make enough money through your business efforts to make a real difference in the world?

Today’s guest, Matt Miller, has built his business on the idea that everyone needs a side income stream that enables them to move their life to the next level. He’s the owner and leader behind School Spirit Vending, a vending company that has created the dream life Matt has always wanted and is also bringing about powerful change in the educational system in the US...by empowering schools to effectively raise funds for much needed resources, materials, and programs. Matt’s a down to earth guy who’s got a great opportunity to share with you, so be sure you listen to this episode of Growth to Freedom.

Leaving the Air Force and blazing a new trail, Matt Miller wasn’t sure what he would do.

But he knew that he didn’t want to be in another situation where someone was always telling him what to do. Deep inside was a desire for freedom, a desire to chart his own course and live a life of freedom and independence. After selling products online through eBay and Amazon for years, Matt believed that there had to be a better way. When a friend at church mentioned vending machines, Matt was all ears. He figured the machines did most of the selling once they were in place, and that was all it took to peak his interest.

The rest is history. Matt has now built his own company, School Spirit Vending, centered around the idea of passive income providing security, flexibility, and wealth, coupled with a belief that he has been placed on the planet to make a difference.

And more than all of that, Matt is excited that his business model is transferable, which means that he’s able to help other families find the lifestyle of freedom and impact that he’s found through vending opportunities. On this episode of Growth to Freedom Matt shares how a vending business could be the exact source of income many families are looking for, and provides a way for you to get a free copy of his book, “Live Your Dreams” that outlines the opportunity and impact a vending business can provide.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • [0:31] Who is Matt Miller?
  • [3:11] How to move from here to there;
  • [6:50] Some of the best leadership traits Matt learned in the military;
  • [13:01] Why Matt didn’t take the typical path of becoming an airline pilot after the air force;
  • [16:48] Matt’s biggest frustration with the entrepreneurial journey;
  • [19:16] The insight from Warren Buffett: Delayed Gratification;
  • [20:51] Boundaries and systems for maximum productivity;
  • [25:40] How to create a blueprint to hit and achieve your goals;
  • [31:55] What Matt was known as in High School;
  • [32:30] The power of Gratitude;
  • [33:40] The key strategies Matt wants to share with his children;
  • And much more...

What would you be like at your very best? What would happen for you if you had complete certainty around your beliefs, vision, purpose, and strategy in the 12 key areas of your life?

Lifebook is a transformational life development system (founded by Jon and Missy Butcher).

Imagine being able to get crystal clear on what you REALLY want in 12 key areas of your life: Love Relationship, Parenting, Family, Social, Intellectual, Health, Career, Financial, Spiritual, Emotional, and more…

Imagine being able to know the contribution and impact you're making in the world (is real)… or defining the connection and love you want in your relationships… or the significance, meaning, and purpose you’re having in your career and financial life… or having complete certainty about what your love life and what that looks like for you…

And then imagine having a blueprint to follow that helps you get rid of the limiting beliefs… replace those with more powerful beliefs, followed by your purpose and your reasons why, combined with a compelling vision of what you really want… and then being able to back that up with strategy.

My experience was facilitated by Sandra Garest who is a great example of being an amazing “guide from the side” as she led us through the series of exercises… and incredible discussions. Considering I’ve attended over 100 personal development events since 1992, this was one of the most powerful and profound personal development programs I had ever experienced.

Never before had I taken a deep dive into the 12 -key categories this way and I walked out with my personalized blueprint, vision, and purpose.

I’d highly recommend this to you if you’re looking for greater confidence, clarity, and direction in building your bigger future.

Today’s episode is just a glimpse into how this process has impacted me. I hope it will do the same for you. Grab a pen and paper and enjoy the journey…

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • [0:31] Dan’s introduction to Lifebook;
  • [6:34] How the LifeBook benefits you;
  • [8:37] The 4 key focuses for personal transformation;
  • [10:23] Case Study Revealed: Dan’s “vision” for his marriage (an example);
  • [12:40] The importance of identifying limiting beliefs.
  • [14:55] How you can transform your marriage;
  • [16:07] Finding purpose in your relationships;
  • [17:18] How to write a compelling vision for your relationships;
  • [18:00] The power of questions as part of your strategy for life;
  • [19:38] What might happen if you define these 4 key areas of your life?
  • And much more….

 

You can get started by taking your own LifeBook assessment today. It takes you through 12 key categories that make up your life; Health and Fitness, your Intellectual Life, your Emotional Life, your Character, your Spiritual Life, your Love Relationships, Parenting, Social Life, Financial, Career, Quality of Life, and Life Vision. The goal is to assess each of those key categories in light of these 4 questions:

What is your premise in this area? (your beliefs, good and bad)

What is your vision for this area?

What is your purpose in this area?

What is your strategy for accomplishing your purpose?

The LifeBook process is a deep dive into the most important things about you and the life. It enables you to not only ask the important questions, but also to make course correction(s), develop healthier beliefs, and create a plan to maximize your life in each category.

And special thanks to Joe Polish for hosting this in Tempe and also Sandra Garest for being an incredible facilitator and guide!

How will your life and business be impacted by A.I., Virtual Reality, Robotics, 3D Printing, Drone Technology, BlockChain, and Crowdsourcing?

Today’s episode is about today, tomorrow, and the future… and the Future is closer than you think! And what this means for you is that if you are positioned properly and prepared to implement these tools, you’ll be poised ahead of your competition (and not be left behind).

And I want to share a few ideas on how you can take advantage and be ready for these emerging technologies and opportunities…

Having spent 4 days at “Abundance 360,” (hosted by futurist, Genius Network Member, and co-founder of XPrize and Singularity University, Peter Diamandis) it was inspirational and certainly opened up my eyes to all kinds of opportunities for the future… It was a cross between Star Trek, Back to the Future, and I-Robot (the movie)....

Here are some of the highlights you can use and apply today:

Mindset: We talk a lot about the importance of mindset on the Growth to Freedom show, and in particular how to develop an “abundance mindset.” If you’re going to make the most of the powerful changes in technology, you’ve got to be able to foster and feed an abundant mindset.

Exponential technology: Embracing the changes that are coming to the tech space can enable you to be on the cutting edge of the changes that impact your industry and your life. You’ve got to learn to think beyond what’s possible today to see what might be possible in the very near future so that you can position your business for its greatest success.

The crowd: Many companies are already tapping into the resources of the crowd, other people who have ideas, skills, and expertise that helps them move their business and ideas forward. How are you going to act when it comes to accessing the wisdom and insights of the crowd?

Experimentation: What are you willing to fail at in order to develop and grow? Larry Page of Google is well known for saying that he counts the number of experiments and failures they’ve iterated as part of the success of Google, and you can see the benefits of doing so. What role does experimentation need to play in your product development, marketing efforts, and advances in your field of expertise.

The wave is not coming. The future is now!

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • [0:32] Abundance 360, Peter Diamandis, and your Future
  • [1:54] The future is closer than you think.
  • [3:17] How to tap into opportunities with 3D printing.
  • [4:19] Leadership: Extending the conversation about advancing technologies.
  • [8:24] What can happen as your mindset leans toward abundance.
  • [9:45] The cost of NOT having an abundance mindset.
  • [10:00] What are you willing to fail at for the sake of growth?
  • [13:09] What is the correlation between mindset and technology?
  • [15:57] How experimentation fits into your life and business growth.
  • [19:10] How to stimulate your thinking to get your ideas moving toward reality.
