You Deserve it
I want to remind you, this sometimes is important for us to do in America, because sometimes we feel like we don't, you deserve it. You deserve it. The title, and the subtitle, of my third book is called Your Best Just Got Better, and then the subtitle is Work Smarter, Think Bigger, Make More. Now I need to explain that third subtitle because when I use the term make more most people think what's the end of that? Make more... That's what most people see but I subscribe to the Napoleon Hill methodology, the book called Think and Grow Rich. And by the way, if you've not read Think and Grow Rich, buy this one, download it, read it this weekend. If you have read Think and Grow Rich, it's 2018, it deserves a re-read. And my mentor, my teacher, the person that gave me his information and I buy his books, Napoleon Hill, he actually listed cash as the 12th rich of life. There's 11 things to be rich in and then there's cash. See, I ask people all the time, what is the more that you want to make...
? Do you want to make more clients happy? Do you want to make more art in the studio? Do you want to make more vacations with your family? Do you want to make more passport stamps, let you travel the world? What is the more that you want to make? 'Cause I want to remind you, you deserve it. A lot of times people will ask, Jason, how do you decide what and when to do, what goal to take on. How do you decide how hight to go every time? Every time it's been a start by looking in the mirror and allowing myself to tell myself what I want. Oh, by the way, some of you are wondering about the picture behind me. That's our dog, Zuma, about a year before she passed. So anytime I can bring Zuma into a slideshow, I will. My wife is in the audience as well, so I just saw her smile. So that was a special little gift. When you look in the mirror, that's the place to practice. One of the goal setting strategies that I teach, I actually got from a mentor of mine who told me, she says you know, Jason, anybody can write a goal on a piece of paper, look at that piece of paper, and close the book, and open it again. She said when I set my goals to become an Olympic champion, and my mentor, BJ, actually won a gold medal in the Sydney Olympics for the United States Swim Team. She said I used to write my goals with a whiteboard pen on a mirror. She said not everybody can write their goal in a mirror and then see themselves read the words. So step one, when I comes to getting momentum, is to be willing to admit you want more. And maybe this is an American way to look at things. Maybe this is a centric on the western hemisphere, but I say we step into it, we own it. I was brought up in California. I've traveled around the United States and I've been to 25 different countries around the world. I want more. I want more friends, I want more memories, I want more travel, I want more clients. I want to write more books. What is the more that you want to make?
