Back in the 90s I got a little frustrated… and it led to a major breakthrough in the way I set goals.
See I had a booming real estate business. We had just broken a BILLION dollars in sales.
So you would think it was all smooth sailing from there, right?
As you know growth is a continuous process.
When you reach a new level, you move on. Otherwise you will stagnate and wither away.
I wanted the business to grow even MORE!
So I invested in my team, to give them the knowledge, habits and skills to grow the business.
I plopped down $250,000 a year on training for them. We had CDs, training courses, motivational speakers, sales experts, books, tapes, videos and “goal setting” experts.
I quickly noticed a trend though…
My team would get all fired up when these guys came in, they’d jump and yell and set big hairy goals.
But… two weeks later, they’d fall back into the same old patterns! The fire would evaporate, and sales would plateau.
I could have paid $25,000 to get a bunch of clowns to come in and dance for a while… it would have had the same effect….
Now - and this is extremely important - when you notice a pattern you MUST do something different to break the pattern… or else you’re just a blind mouse running back and forth on the same part of a maze… you will NEVER get the cheese!
That’s just common sense, right?
So, here’s what I did…
I stopped flushing my money down the toilet and I made an interesting offer to my 1,500 salespeople.
THEY could pay ME $3,000 and I would show them the “weird” goal setting secrets my millionaire mentor had shown me when I was 21.
(These same secrets helped earn an additional $116,000 in personal income the first year I learned them… so I knew they worked)
The reason I made my team pay, instead of just giving it away free is because I wanted them to have skin in the game. I wanted them to take the process and knowledge seriously… and so I asked them to invest in their growth.
Well, a bunch of them took me up on my offer, paid me $3,000 and I taught them my “weird” methods.
Six months later… the real estate business had grown by an astonishing $100 million in sales!
($100,000,000.00 <— looks pretty amazing when you write it out, doesn’t it?)
AND every single person who had paid me $3,000 earned at least $30,000 just by doing my “weird” goal setting process!!
They made back 10X what they had invested in just six months!
So over the last 30 years I’ve shown this process to thousands of people, from billionaire entrepreneurs to regular hard-working blue-collar folks… without fail… anyone who committed to the process achieved outstanding results!
(I’ll tell you one of the most incredible and inspiring stories in a couple days with the counselor from down-under and her incredibly inspiring income increase)
Anyways, now it’s 2016. A few years ago I learned that this process I was teaching has recently been completely explained with modern neuroscience. (It wasn’t magic. Go figure.)
What my mentor had shown me was a way to short-circuit the amygdala and overcome the neural dissonance that creates fear.
That mis-firing of the amygdala happens when your brain gets uncomfortable. It’s why most people learn NOT to set big goals.
(Their brains don’t like to fail)
Well, with the habits and practices I showed my team they were able to activate their entire brain and get it focused on helping them instead of holding them back.
And now I want to share this process with you.
We put together a new course called The New Science Of Goal Setting.
It’s still a pretty new course, and honestly there’s a lot of work I’d like to do on it before rolling it out as a perfectly polished product.
You’re one of the ones we chose to help us test it out. (This email is only going out to a small part of our contact list)
Here’s what’s in the course:
The new neuroscience behind making and achieving goals (This validates what my millionaire mentor taught me so many years ago) Why having a vision and goals is NOT enough How to twist emotional resistance into a driving force for your success Why doing less will get you more (IF you’re doing the right things, in the right way) Why most people plan for failure… and… how to plan for success instead The “chunking” method for narrowing down what you need to do One simple “time management” technique that can make you 3-5X more powerful and effective And much more!
For the next 4 days you can get in on the test for a whopping 84% discount from the regular price.

You just have to promise me 2 things:
You will make a COMMITMENT to use the techniques I teach and use them to set AND achieve goals
You will give us your honest, uncensored review of the product and the processes so we can continue to fine-tune it for the future.
If you agree to those 2 things, then you qualify to be a part of our test group.
Some people may think that goals have a definite timeline to accomplish. In part, this is true, but there are certainly ways on how you can hasten the process. You can achieve more great things by focusing on the current job and getting it done, without any compromise. Here are some guidelines from the experts that you can use yourself.
Step One: Forming a Team
Things can be accomplished more quickly if you rely on other people and assign tasks accordingly. When forming a team, it is important that you choose individuals whom you can trust and are truly competent in the fields you assign them to. Teams need to be supervised to ensure that you get the results you want. You can also create a hierarchy or create pairs so that one can look out for the other, thereby saving you time when reviewing work.
Forming a team gives you the benefit of practicing your leadership skills. You will find that later on, you also get to finish tasks more quickly alone, since you've already created an effective system that will provide a smoother flow of various jobs. Make sure you also get the appropriate number of people for the job, or else you risk having too many to watch over, wasting precious time in the process.
Step Two: Finding Shortcuts
Some goals actually have shortcuts that you can use to reach more quickly. These are not quick fixes, but can help the entire system respond in a more conducive manner, thereby boosting the process. For example, there are no short cuts to permanent weight loss, but you can do some techniques that will hasten the fat loss. Some of the approaches include using HIIT or high intensity interval training, instead of the traditional cardiovascular exercise. HIIT is done only in 20 minutes tops, and burns more fat and raises your metabolism higher and for longer periods of time. Your body will respond to the exercise faster.
To know about the shortcuts, always stay updated with changes and developments in technology and professional programs. Stay connected in a network of people related to your goals. Joining forums and online seminars are ideal. You can also talk to experts, so you can compare processes and determine if a certain approach is truly effective.
Step Three: Extra Hours
Consistency, discipline and dedication always give you faster and better results. If you want to finish things faster, you may have to put in extra hours and work longer than the usual. The more important thing is that you keep stress levels down afterwards by relaxing and giving yourself enough time to rest. This way, you can move on to the next goals to be achieved. Overtime should also be well-planned. You cannot expect to work effectively beyond your usual time if you're still tired the night before or do not have enough equipment to work with.
Prepare and strategize by coming up with small objectives and actions steps to be done in sequence. Having information prior to your overtime can help greatly and save you lots of idle time. You may also ask someone to work with you during overtime to accomplish more. Try to incorporate all the three steps above and see for yourself how much more you can boost the process.
