I had an amazing mentoring call with Les Brown & Paul Martinelli tonight. I told Les I was getting asked to speak and he spent some 1 on 1 time coaching me in order to help me with my message; the message I will be sharing with the world! I took his words, added my words, and some words from the great teachers along my journey (Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Paul Martinelli, John Maxwell, Mary Morrissey, Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Troy Hazard, Jim Bunch, Vishen Lakhiani, Brian Johnson, and many more) Here it is, first on paper, then in person…

Re-Invent Yourself. With the right FOCUS you can put an end to any unhappiness, stress, or dissatisfaction in your life. With the right attitude you can take your worst days and turn them into your best days. Be optimistic and confident about your future. You can start by getting clear on what you want. Write down your goals, your vision & your dreams them become a Warrior to attain them. Your dreams need to be beyond your comfort zone. Become someone you have never been! STRETCH yourself. Lead, don’t follow. Believe, don’t doubt. Create, not destroy. Set a new standard for yourself.

Absolute Faith. BURN THE SHIPS! Leave no option; no turning back until you accomplish your mission. This is not as easy as it sounds. 87% of people have a fear of failure. Acknowledge those fears. But don’t ignore them or fight them, instead move into them. Fear and excitement are one word from being the same thing. Dance with your fears. Align with them. They will wear out. Have 100% faith that you can do anything you put entire heart and soul into. You have infinite potential and nothing that can stop you but yourself.

Desire. You must have a burning desire for what you want in life. This burning desire is your WHY. WHY do you wake up and get out of bed each morning? WHY you work each day? Is it for your kids, or to support your parents, or so that one day you can start a charity? To find your WHY, find something bigger than your own personal gain. As humans we will do more for others than we will do for ourselves. Power moves to those that are truly committed to serving others. With a burning desire that is greater than you, you will not fail and you will not let life’s road bumps knock you off the road.

Invest in yourself. Time is our most valuable assest. Take a close look at how you are spending your time. Don’t waste it watching TV, the Electronic Income Reducer. Don’t waste it spending time with people that are not helping you grow. Invest your time in yourself by learning from mentors, going to seminars, reading, listening & watching books and programs that will stretch you personally, professionally, and spiritually! Invest a minimum of 5% of your income back into your personaldevelopment. Spend a minimum of 30 minutes a day developing your mind & spirit. These are the things that you should find easy to do, yet most people find it hard. Everything is this world is either growing or dying. So if you are not growing, well… you are dying. Another very important way to invest in yourself is to CELEBRATE! Celebrate your wins, celebrate your life. Every day write down what you are grateful for and every day celebrate these things. A little secret about me: My favorite form of celebration is to TURN UP THE MUSIC AND DANCE! Yup, dance like no one is watching.  Or dance my face off :) Find a way to truly enjoy yourself, you deserve it! Also, commit to writing down each day what you are grateful for. Since I am online a lot, I use the Gratitude Log (www.gratitudelog.com), find something that works for you but do not skip this step. You are perfect, life is perfect and everyone is here for a reason, so let’s be grateful for everything the Universe has provided us.

Nurture & develop positive relationships. Take a look at the people you surround yourself with each day. If you’re the smartest person in your group, get a new group! HOw many people are currently in your peer group or family that are holding you to your highest and true authentic self? Did you know that by flying in a “V” formation, geese gain 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew alone. As each goose flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the birds that follow. Your success in life has a direct correlation to the quality of the people you associate with on a regular basis. People’s lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group. If you want to upgrade your life, upgrade your peer group.

Action, take immediate action on your ideas and dreams. Most people are procrastinators. I hope that no one reading this wants to be like most people. Just freaking do it already! Add more value to this world; add more than anyone would ever expect of you. In order to add value, you much take action. Progress equals happiness. Boldly take immediate action. Forward motion with emotion. If you want to lose weight, get up right now and clean out the frig! Here is the ultimate success formula: Get clarity on your dreams, goals, and true purpose. Find your reason WHY. Take massive freaking action! Take note of the results you are getting, and change your strategy if needed, but never quit. And CELEBRATE your wins!!!!

And that ladies and gentlemen is The RADINA Path. R.A.D.I.N.A. With Reinventing yourself, Absolute faith, Desire, Investments in yourself, Nurturing & developing positive relationships, and Action, immediate action, you have my path to unlimited wealth & happiness.
