10 Life Secrets They Will Never Teach You In School

The most important ideas and skills for successful living aren’t taught in school.

Unless you have an appropriate mentor, this critical part of your education is your responsibility.

Consider these secrets:
1. Persistence Is Your Ultimate Power.

There’s plenty of highly intelligent and talented people living on the street.

Even if you feel you were born with the short end of the stick, you can be incredibly successful.

The ability to persevere can overcome almost any obstacle.
2. You Can’t Control People.

With practice, you can learn to control yourself.

When you appreciate how challenging it is to control yourself, you’ll realize how futile it is to attempt to control others.

Only allow people into your life that you don’t have to change.
3. The Best Investment Is The Investment You Make In Yourself.

Spend money to enhance your skills and abilities.

A gym membership, the right books, and the people you follow on Twitter can be the best money you’ll ever spend.
4. Failing Is An Essential Part Of Success.

Those that ultimately succeed are those that failed the most.

Fail quickly, learn, adjust your process, and have another go at it.
5. It’s Important To Forgive Easily.

When you forgive others, you set yourself free.

Forgiveness doesn’t always mean you give the other person a second chance.

It means that you’re choosing not to suffer any longer.
6. Most Of The Things You Worry About Will Never Happen.

We’re all experts at creating imaginary challenges. We worry and expect the worst.

There’s plenty of time to get upset after something negative actually happens.

Avoid feeling nervous or upset before it’s justified.
7. You Only Need A Couple Of Good Friends.

Good friends are hard to find.

Those people that believe they have 20 close friends do not.

Focus on making quality relationships.

You don’t have enough time to take care of more than a couple of close friends anyway.
8. Find A Partner That Fits Into Your Life, Rather Than Trying To Build A Life Around Your Partner.

Suppose you have a life-long dream of spending your winters in Florida and your summers in the south of France.

Should you date someone that says they’ll never leave Oklahoma?
Build a life you love and then find someone that fits into your lifestyle.

There are more people you could happily spend a lifetime with than you think.

Don’t sugffer from oneitis. There’s plenty of fish in the sea.
9. Find Your Purpose.

Is living in a three-bedroom ranch with two kids and a dog not enough?

Imagine having everything you want in life, but spending 8+ hours each day at a job you despise?

Ensure that you find something you enjoy and make it your priority to be the best.
10. Stay In Shape.

Even the 3-sport high school athlete can eventually reach 300 pounds.

It’s much easier to stay in shape than to get in shape.

Develop an exercise routine and diet plan you can follow for a lifetime.
It’s possible to do well in school and still struggle with life.

However, life is easier than you think once you understand these secrets you never learned in school.

7 Toxic Habits You Need To Stop Doing NOW!

1. Caring what others think.
2. Over analyzing what hasn’t happened.
3. Being consumed by your appearance.
4. Taking on others problems.
5. Focusing on what you don’t have.
6. Holding on to grudges and anger.
7. Complaining.
1. Caring What Others Think.

So, because one anonymous twitter account with 2 followers says “you’re an idiot”, is the reason you’re giving up?

The more you put your ideas out there and gain success the more people will try to put you down.

Thier opinion means nothing.
2. Over Analyzing What Hasn’t Happened.

Why are you struggling over what hasn’t happened yet?

This is a very limiting mindset.

Analyze what’s in your control and come up with actionable solutions.

You can’t solve something that hasn’t or never will happen.

If you want to reach your potential and dominate in business and in life you have to be very afraid of:

•Being liked by everyone
•Dying alone

These 5 things should scare the living shit out of you.

If they don’t you’ll never succeed.
1. Mediocrity

Most people just wake up, get dressed, go to work, and sit and stare at the clock all day until it hits 5pm.

Then go home and do nothing.

Is this the life you really want?

Break the cycle.

Mediocrity is cancer.
2. Insignificance.

What’s more important?

Watching some loser in a reality show and watching every move they make?

Or finding a mission and creating something that people will find value and significance in?

Stop watching losers and start being a winner.

There’s times that I wish I could do my life over. There’s so many things I’d do differently.

I think about lost opportunities, time wasted on relationships, and bad decisions.

But that’s a Loser’s Mindset.

I forget all the blessings I have in my life...
My 3 beautiful children, my families restaurant that’s been thriving for over 90 years, the patients I get to serve in my chiropractic practice...

And you, following my tweets watching my videos and allowing my to take up some time in your life.

We all go through this...
We forget the greatness in our lives because we’re spoiled by

We’ve done those things. There alway part of us and we look at others and think the grass is greener over there.

We think we’re missing something.

The truth is...we’re not....

Mindset Is Everything!

You have to decide if you want to be a Winner or Loser

Losers Choose:


Winners Choose:

•Massive Action
It’s time to choose being a Winner!

It doesn’t mean your life will be perfect.

But a winner chooses to see:


You might not always win, but you’ll put yourself in the position to win.
Even if you have a Winners Mindset, sometimes you will lose.

But you’ll see each loss as a stepping stone to new levels and teachable moments to learn from and to grow.

This is what mental toughness is.

It’s not about thinking you’re invincible, but it makes you unbreakable.

If your mindset isn’t right it will never matter how good you are at:

•Copy writing
•Internet marketing
•Pickiig up women
•Building a brand
•Social media
•Building a business

Because most give up when obstacles appear or they don’t see results in 2 weeks...
You have to train your mind to be mentally tough enough to push through the obstacles and to be persistent when just starting out.

You can’t expect success the first day you start.

That’s like trying to have the baby the night after having sex...
It’s not gonna happen no mattter how good you get at being a parent.

To get to any goal you set you have to

•Put life into perspective
•Be grateful for what you have
•Not dwell on what you don’t have
•Eliminate negativity
•Add value
•Be of service

Was watching the movie Doc Hollywood last night with Michael J. Fox. It’s one of my favorite movies.

He’s a plastic surgeon going to work in an extremely high end clinic to the rich and famous.

Along his way he crashes his car in an small Old School North Carolina town....
He gets fined for destroying a farmers fence with his car and has to do community service in the local clinic, which has one dr and one nurse.

Lots of life lessons in the movie.

He falls in love with the town, the people, and a girl, of course.

In a few scenes...
A married couple comes to the office, not for treatment, but for him to read the letters sent to them from back home because they can’t read.

He sits with them and gets more and more involved with this family. It’s pretty funny....
