Nine years ago, my older brother who’s one of my mentors – this dude reads like crazy, he reads a lot and I have a lot of respect for him to what he’s done, he is just a straight up hustler, he hustles hard. My older brother had two million-dollar-businesses.
My older brother has been homeless; had to steal food – it’s a crazy story. You talk about inspiration, I had nothing compared to what this guy has done. He reads like two hundred books a year.
He said this to me, “you know the two things that successful people do? Just watch successful people and do what they do and you will be fine.” what two things that they do?
Here’s what I learned because he never told me what it is. Here’s what I learned from successful people that I put in my life and it changed the whole game for me.

1.) the L.A. principle – Learn, Apply. This is not the first time you are seeing my broadcast. I hope not, and if it is, thank you for watching me.
If you just learn that and apply it, you’re straight. I don’t read two hundred books a year. But if read one and then I apply it, it’s going to change my life.
Three years ago, I read this book “The Power of Habit”. It was the time I wasn’t working out and when I was about 40 pounds heavier than I am now. I realized how easy it was for me to create a habit and what was going on in my brain why I was certain with certain things but I actually applied the stuff I learned on that book and it changed my life. I started fitness again completely, and now I have close to eight hundred fitness clients. That one book – learn, apply.
2.) I learned is execution. You might think, you got to nail it in the first try. No, you don’t. That is a lie. What you have to do is just try. You just have to try. You just have to put something out there.
They think they have to go to point A to Z and then it paralyzes them. It’s just too much. It’s just too darn overwhelming for them. So they end up never doing anything.
I used to think, “I want to have a forty thousand square foot big time wellness facility”. If I have to start with that, I would never have gotten anywhere. But because I said, “we can start with this – little eleven hundred square foot facility and see if we can work” or “look, I just need to get something out there – get one person to consume your information and then get some response back from them and then make it better.”
I have done two hundred and thirty YouTube videos but every single time I did a video, I actually ask somebody that I respected,
“hey what you think of this video”
“yeah, it could have been better.”
“yeah, you are not really looking at the camera”
Every single time I just got something and then it made it better, A to B, B to C, C to D, D to E, E to F, F to G… that’s how it goes. You don’t have to go from A to Z, you just got to go from A to B – and then course correct, go to B to C.Learn, apply. Click To Tweet
There is no reward given out for reading a hundred and ninety five thousand books. If you took one book, listen to one message, apply that somehow in your life today, tomorrow or this week. You will radically change. If you understand execution is not going from A to Z - it’s just going from A to B. Click To Tweet
That’s all it is. That is all you need.
I have a course that is called Smart Success PTs that is over 95 lessons. If I would have thought about all the lessons, it’s everything that I would teach a physical therapist that was taking over my practice. You are taking all my practice, you are learning everything in it. That’s what I thought when I initially created a course, and it was overwhelming.
It took me a month, I was paralyzed. But all I needed to do I say, “okay, what’s the first thing to teach them – I am going A to B instead of A to Z. And then the next day I went from B to C. And then I took off a day and then I went from C to D. Then I went from D to E. After about three and a half months, I got the Z. Smart Success done. That’s how you do it.
