How To Break Through The Glass Ceiling

Have you ever wondered why your business can’t break through its glass ceiling?

Today, I’m going to share something very important with you about this glass ceiling and how to shatter through it. 

What I’m about to show you is often overlooked, yet it’s how I grew Fit Body Boot Camp so quickly.

The glass ceiling is also known as the upper limit. As most people start to see success they tend to hit their upper limits and then slide back down to their comfort zone.

This mainly has to do with your old identity not allowing you to break through and enjoy a higher level of success and income.  

Sadly, most think that to break the glass ceiling they need better marketing, sales, systems, ect…

While those hard skills are necessary for a business to thrive… 

…the real key to success comes from the soft skills. 

Hard Skills are like marketing, sales, funnels, standard operating procedures, etc.

Don’t get me wrong, hard skills are important. Yet, they’re capped by the level of the leader’s personal growth. 

It doesn’t matter how much of a master you are at hard skills. You’ll hit a glass ceiling with them.

And when you hit that ceiling, you’ll find yourself falling back.

To break past this, you need Soft Skills.

Here’s the special thing about Soft Skills, you can’t hire someone to do them for you. You can only develop them. 

As a child they’re taught to you by your parents, grandparents, and even your teachers. 

Now as an adult it’s something that you have to develop yourself if you want to become a better leader and break through your upper limits. 

Here are 3 main soft skills you must develop to break through the glass ceiling you have in your business:

Soft Skill #1: Money Relationship

Your relationship with money is vital if you want to build an empire that makes a significant impact. 

If you don’t have a great relationship, understand this: money is a vehicle for freedom. Money is a vehicle to impact. And it does not discriminate. 

Money goes to those who work hard and solve problems. And it’s repelled by laziness and to those who are allergic to hard work.

Money also solves the problem of not having money. And that’s a really good problem to have solved. So if you’ve got a poor relationship with money… fix it! 

Soft Skill #2: Emotional Discipline

There’s no room for emotional distress in a business. In business, you can’t afford to be emotionally reactive towards things. Because 9 out of 10 times, you’ll  look like a fool and you’ll lose the respect of those you lead and do business with. 

Instead, you must be emotionally responsive when things go wrong. There’s a big difference between REACTING to an issue and RESPONDING to one. 

You’re a leader, so respond effectively. People rely on you to lead and not act like a toddler when something doesn’t go your way.

Soft Skill #3: Develop Confidence

Confidence is a by-product of credibility and winning. By winning, I don’t mean making millies. Those will come over time. 

I’m talking about saying if you’re going to wake up at 5 am, you wake up at 5 am without hitting snooze.

I’m talking about getting that workout in if you said you’d get it in first thing in the morning. 

I’m talking about keeping the small promises to yourself and to others. That’s how you stack wins gangsta! 

These 3 Soft Skills will give you the “edge” and help you break through your upper limits. 

How? Because Soft Skills magnify your Hard Skills.

Which then makes it easier to blow past any new glass ceiling your business, income, and impact will have.

To your success,

Only Losers Fake It Till They Make It

I know the goofball gurus out there tell you to fake it till you make it, but that’s stupid advice! 

Don’t do that. 

There’s nothing worse than feeling like an imposter. And when you do the ol’ fake it till you make it maneuver then you really fuck things up for yourself. 

Faking it is false confidence.  

If you want to have the confidence that attracts people to you like a super magnet then you gotta do the work that makes you a pro, builds your reputation and give you REAL street credibility.

NOTHING BEATS REAL CONFIDENCE. 

And if you don’t have it… do the work to build it. 

Trust me, I bought fancy watches and fast cars to help create the image of confidence. I puffed up my track record to show the world that I was the real deal… 

…and any person smarter than a 5th grader could spot that I was faking it a mile away. Even worse, I felt like a total fraud and imposter.

How you become confident is through competency. Do the sets and reps until you get the wins. 

Building your confidence creates the magnet that draws people to you.

Building your confidence gives you the charisma and smarts to lead your business and your family. 

Building your confidence how people will respect you for your work and contribution. 

So how do you build your confidence?

You build your confidence by stacking “W’s” throughout the day.

The more wins you stack, the more fortified your confidence gets. 

And the more W’s you stack the more people take notice and show respect. 

And do you know what the kryptonite of confidence is? “L’s”

See that’s the thing… most people spend their days stacking losses. 

Collecting “L’s” is how you quickly break down your confidence and feel like a useless piece of shit. 

One of the smallest yet most powerful ways to shatter your confidence is by hitting snooze in the morning. I talk about this in my book Man Up and go into the subconscious triggers that crush confidence. 

Hitting snooze stacks the first “L” of the day, and you haven’t even peed yet.

Then skipping the workout that you planned to have in the morning is another “L”. And if you keep breaking the promises that you made to yourself all day then you end up stacking a shit ton of L’s. 

Do you think your confidence will be broken to bits? Of course!

Now imagine not hitting snooze every day and stacking up the “W’s”…

Where do you think your confidence will be? 

And imagine keeping your promise to yourself and getting that workout in, and eating clean, and making those sales calls. 

That’s stacking wins motherfucker! And over time you build that body, business or make the impact that you wanted and you gain the respect of everyone around you. 

The formula to being confident is simple, and it all starts by not hitting snooze.

How To Sell Better

There are only two reasons why people will not buy your product or services from you.

1) They don’t need your product. In other words, they’re not the right prospect. You don’t have the solution to their problem.

This is an easy fix, it’s a marketing issue not a sales issue. Just get the right prospects who’ve got the problem that your product or service solves and you’re in business!

And then there’s the other reason why they don’t buy from you…

2) They don’t see the value in your product or service when compared to the price you’re charging.

But don’t for a minute think that you’re charging too much. In fact, it has nothing to do with cost and everything to do about value.

Contrary to what you think, people don’t really need to go home to talk with their spouse, or to think about it or to look at their finances.

Those objections are just diversions to let you down easily and to not hurt your feelings.

The truth is this…they simply don’t want to tell you that they do not see the value in your product as compared to the cost, so they give you an objection and bounce.

Look, here’s the thing about selling. It’s actually really easy and doesn’t take a lot of effort if you take time to build the value of your product or service up.

REMEMBER THIS…

When cost is higher than value they will NOT buy.

When value is higher than cost they WILL buy.

Here are some ways to build higher value in your product or service:

Use social proof or before and after pictures to demonstrate that your product is worth it.

Get an overwhelming amount of reviews.

Get industry experts to talk about your product or services.

Get influencers and celebrities to use your product or service.

Offer a money back guarantee.

Spend more of your time listening to what your prospect wants and less time talking at them about your product.

That’s the thing about selling… It’s more about asking the right questions and then listening rather than just talking at your prospects and trying to desperately sell your product or service.

When value exceeds price they will always buy.

The Dark Side Of Self Development

Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that self-development and personal growth is a good thing and that we should all experience it. 

I think that’s been pretty well established. 

But there’s a dark side to personal and professional growth, the side where you end up screwing it all up. 

It’s something that many experience as they develop to the higher version of themselves only to fuck it all up and slide back into their old identity. 

I’ve experienced it myself so I share this from first-hand experience. 

It’s the upper limit. 

EVERYONE has an upper limit. It’s like a glass ceiling that you press up against as you develop personally and professionally. 

It’s your mental and emotional capacity in terms of growth. 

The goal is to break through that upper limiting glass ceiling, but more than not we end up pressing against this upper limit and our old identity pulls us back down to our comfort zone. 

Like I said, the upper limit is something that we all have… 

…but if we don’t navigate through it effectively we end of sabotaging ourselves and sliding back into the old version of who we are – your old identity (your comfort zone). 

In fact I see this with many of the men who first come to the MDK Project. They did the self-work, but at some point they hit the upper limit and went back to their old ways which led to more business and relationship problems. 

Here’s how the upper limit works. When you hit the upper limit, meaning when you achieve higher self-awareness, success, happiness or wealth or a deeper relationship your ego (YOUR OLD IDENTITY)  tends to bring you back down to where you’re most familiar with, in other words your comfort zone. 

This happens by giving yourself negative thoughts or doing negative behaviors that ruins what you’ve achieved – like losing all the money after winning lottery, arguing with your partner after becoming successful or thinking of negative things when you have happy thoughts because you’re just more familiar with a negative self-narrative.  

This is why I call upper limiting the KISS OF DEATH. 

How do you stop upper limiting so that you can enjoy your new level of personal and professional growth? 

You become self-ware that it’s going to happen, because it’s going to happen to all of us when we do the work and grow…

…and then you tell yourself that you’re worth it and not to f#ck it up.

The Happiness Lie

Earlier last week I saw a headline that got my attention (good marketing!)

 

The headline read: 80% of millennials surveyed said being rich would make them happy.

 

As I read the article it went on to say that 75% of these same millennials surveyed said that fame would also make them happy.

 

Being curious I started googling studies on happiness to see what’s out there. I was blown away to find the longest university study EVER conducted was done by Harvard and it was an 80 year long study on happiness. HOLY SHIT! I dove in.

 

So in 1938 in the middle of the great depression Harvard decided to do a study on 600 men (decades later they added women to the study as well).

 

Half the study participants were students from Harvard and half were from the slums of Boston.

 

Many of these men ended up going to fight in the war.

 

Some died.

 

The rest came back and lived their lives and the study continued on for decades.

 

Some become rich and famous. One became a U.S. president. Some went from rich and famous to poverty…

 

Every two years for the last 80 years the participants were asked a series of questions, observed in their day to day relationships and given health check ups.

 

Here’s what they’ve discovered in 80 years of observation. Three things to be exact…

 

1) Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. The quality of our relationships matter. High conflict relationships (friendships, partnerships, marriages, ect) are toxic to health and happiness. 

 

2) Social connections are really good for us and loneliness kills. Isolated people are less happy. In fact, they found that isolated people have faster brain decline. 

3) Good relationships protect our minds AND bodies. Test after test proved that loving, loyal and trusting relationships keep the mind sharp and the person happy.

 

Pretty cool study.

 

What we’re all really chasing, is a level of true happiness.

 

Most believe that building a foundation with fame and riches,
magically builds stacks the bricks of happiness on top..

 

Not true!

 

Take a deeper look and reality looks like this,

 

 Surround yourself with great people,

 

Go far with others who have their sights on healthy living, in all places,

 

Build fulfilling relationships that grow in love, trust, and loyalty.

 

Build the fame and wealth with that foundation,

 

and you’ll see how much different your view of success and happiness is,

 

you’ll see how fast you’ll achieve with an environment of this nature,

 

and you’ll see how long and fulfilling your life can truly be..

 

Send this to that young person in your life, and if this is you,
BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THIS..

 

Love and gratitude,

Work/Life Balance is a Myth

The personal development “gurus” have it all wrong… again. 

The other day I heard a life coach with a blue check mark talking about creating work/life balance and how vital that is if you want to live a good life. 

Bullshit!  

Look, if you’re tired of burning the candle at both ends and white-knuckling it through work and life while being an entrepreneur…

…let me clear something up for you and help you out by crushing this Work/Life Balance myth once and for all. 

Pay attention.

I’m married. I have 2 kids (a 15 year old boy and a 13 year old girl).We’ve got 2 dogs and 1 cat. And I’m a serial entrepreneur with multiple companies and a big team at HQ. 

I share this to tell you that with these businesses and personal responsibilities, I’m still able to make it home for dinner every night and have plenty of family time. 

None of this would be possible if I had “Work/Life Balance”.

I rode that train and went flying off the rails and had a massive panic attack… nearly lost it all.

So how did I expand my empire while still being fit, leading my business and making time and loving up my family?

I’m glad you asked. I call it a Work-Life Mix.

How To Build a Seven Figure Business

If you’re a new business owner or a veteran business owner who’s struggling to get to the next level of success, then we need to talk. 

Entrepreneurs like you always ask me how to get to the next level where they can break through the glass ceiling, start seeing bigger and more consistent profits and not having to work a crap ton of hours every day.

So think it’s just one simple answer… 

…kinda like if I could just give them a magic pill that will help them unlock 100% of their brain power.

I wish I could give you a limitless pill but I can’t.

But here’s what I can do for you to give you the 10,000 foot view of what it takes to scale your business to multiple 7 figures and beyond. 

Success (in terms of growth, profits and freedom) in business boils down to these three things: 

1.) The People: You the leader… as well as your team/employees. If      you’re a crappy leader, it’s gonna be a sucky ride with no real payoff in the end. If you have employees who are not bought into your vision and who don’t share your drive and enthusiasm, then you’re once again screwed and destined to struggle and stall. 

 

2.) The Product: Your product or service needs to be top notch. Not just good. But really great! Like it needs to exceed the expectations of your clients and customers to the point where they become evangelical about your business. If your product is just average then your business is going to die in this aggressively competitive environment.

 

3.) The Process: If you’re just winging your marketing, sales, service and customer support then you’re going to be screwed. Everything your business does must be driven by a process or system. Systems make scaling predictable. 

Now then, if you want to know how I help my coaching clients scale by 7 figures each year or more it’s because we focus on the three P’s above and dial in every single one of them until growth, profits and success become predictable.

It doesn’t  matter if you’re a brand new business or if you’ve been in business for five or ten years… 

…if you don’t have the People, Product and Processes dialed in you’re going to find yourself frustrated, hitting up against a glass ceiling and leaving millions of dollars on the table. 

Can I help you?

How To Stop Failing And Start Winning

I was taught a great lesson in failure at the recent MDK Project class.

During hour 49 of 75 hours one of the candidates was starting to eye the bell, we’ll call him Tony.

In case you don’t know, our lead instructor for the MDK Project is Ray Care, a former Navy SEAL.

So naturally as you might imagine he constructed the 75 hour experience similar to the SEAL training they get where if you decide to quit, you have to ring the bell.

As candidate Tony was looking at the bell, instructure Ray asked him if he was ready to quit.

He said “no”… but I don’t want to fail.

And that’s the thing about failure… it’s NOT something that happens to you.

99% of the time, failure is actually quitting.

We quit too soon,

We quit when times get hard,

We quit when our plate gets too full,

We quit when it hurts,

We quit when adversity hits…

There’s a precursor to quitting. Before you quit anything you first start a negative conversation with yourself.

This negative conversation does a damn good job of justifying why you should quit.

If you choose to let the conversation continue then you’re going to quit, but you’ll tell everyone around you that you somehow failed.

But if you can catch the negative conversation before it takes hold then you can stop it and reverse it.

That’s what the Project is designed to do for you, to teach you how to STOP the negative conversations that lead to quitting and help you give voice to your inner savage.

We expose you to yourself and help you discover that ringing that f#@king bell ife should not even be an option.

How many of the little actions in your day are unknowingly associated with failure that’s a byproduct of negative self talk that leads to quitting?

You make promises, you keep them.

How many thoughts, actions, habits are in our control that influence winning?

Kill that negative voice in your head and cut the self-sabotage – it really is that simple.

It’s not easy, but it is simple.

Walk, talk, eat, think, serve like a F-ing savage!

And when you come out to experience the MDK Project for yourself, do NOT look at the bell…

…not even a glance!

How To Be a Real Man

A few weeks ago while speaking at an event I was asked: how can I be a real man?  by someone in the audience. 

So I started off by saying… 

To be a man, you can’t show any emotion or vulnerability. 

Make sure to avoid all deep and meaningful conversations. 

Stuff all of your feelings deep down inside, keep your head down and just grind through life.

Walk on eggshells around everyone and avoid all confrontations. 

Be passive aggressive until you get so pissed off that you blow up at your wife.

Don’t ask for help… that’s weakness. 

Never do the deep work to heal…

…instead avoid, ignore and distract yourself so that you never have to work on the negative belief systems that haunt you. 

Never address your vices or addictions. EVER!

Always pretend that everything is okay and just continue to suffer in silence and quieting die inside. 

WHEN YOU READ THIS, IT’S CLEAR HOW STUPID THIS WAY OF LIVING IS, RIGHT? 

Yet this is how the majority of men live their lives. 

Reminds me of David Thoreau’s quote: The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

This was me for nearly 20 years. And it almost cost me everything. 

I don’t know what your inner-demons are. 

– Physical abuse you got from your dad.

– Insecurities your mom pushed onto you.

– Depression or crippling anxiety.

– Sexual abuse.

You might think that burying these demons deep inside of you is the best way to go about it. 

Or maybe if you just don’t think about them that they’ll go away. 

I’m here to tell you from first hand personal experience that they’ll show up in other areas of your life and haunt you until you address them and heal from them. 

They’ll show up in your marriage, your health, your friendships and in your business in ways that cause you to sabotage your health, success and happiness.

WANT TO KNOW WHAT WORKED FOR ME? 

I got help.

I did the work. 

I healed.

Look, the last thing we men want to do is to bring up old shit and talk to a therapist about it. 

I was THAT guy. 

But I committed to doing the work and worked with a really great therapist for over a year to work through my s#!t and heal so that I could find peace of mind, fulfillment and happiness. 

Asking for help was the best thing I could have done because it helped me come face-to-face with my inner-demons, exorcise them, and then put them to rest.

Dude, listen to me, if you want to live a fulfilled life then you’ve got to get rid of the head trash that’s thwarting your growth, success, happiness and peace of mind. 

The alternative is to continue to suffer in silence. 

To continue to self-sabotage. 

To continue to chase the dragon and then feel like shit after. 

I want you to find peace, happiness and fulfilment…

…but it’s only going to happen if you’re ready to do the self-work.

This is why I created The Modern Day Knight Project.

It’s to help men stop suffering in silence and to finally start winning in life, business and in your happiness.

Success Is Simple… But It’s Not Easy

What if everything complex in your life was actually easy and simple? 

Here’s a weird thought… 

…we humans tend to complicate things. 

We tend to add extra steps where they’re not needed. 

We tend to overthink, over analyze and over process things and that leads to complexity. 

And when things are complex we tend to avoid them. 

How weird is that? 

We over complicate things and then we avoid doing those things because it seems too complicated. 

I used to be the king of overcomplicating things. 

I’ve over complicated getting fit, muscular and lean. 

I’ve over complicated starting and growing a business. 

I’ve over complicated a bunch of things! 

Truth is, most things are pretty simple… 

If you want to get fit, lean and strong then start training heavy and fast, eat a clean high protein diet and be consistent. 

If you want to build a successful and profitable business then make sure that your product or service is really good at solving a problem that people have, then find the right leads through advertising and make them an offer where the value of the product or service is greater than the cost. 

That’s how I’ve built and grown Fit Body Boot Camp, TruLean Supplements and the Modern Day Knight Project

The old version of me would have complicated the process, added extra steps and would have over-thunk everything…

…and then the overwhelm of it all would have stopped me from executing. 

(I’ve actually done this in the past when I first started off in business) 

Look, it aint rocket science… until you complicate it and make it so. 

Success in any category of life is simple. It’s not easy, but it is simple. 

I’m convinced that humans simply complicate things as a form of procrastination. 

I hope this little rant of mine helps you achieve whatever it is that you’re trying to do in life.
