No One Is Going To Do The Work For You

If you want a lean, athletic body that turns heads, you can’t skip the sets and reps in the gym. 

That’s a pretty obvious one, right? 

The same thing applies to business… However, for most business owners, that’s not so obvious. 

If you want to change your family’s financial bloodline and have a business that gives you financial freedom and impact, you can’t skip the sets and reps required to succeed.

What I mean by this, is that you have to put in the work.

You can have the best damn plan in the world, but no one is going to do the work for you. 

My favorite thing about the gym is that it easily translates to business.

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned from the gym is how to get to where you want faster without wasting time and getting frustrated.

Look, I used to be a fat kid all the way throughout high school

When I wanted to stop being fat, I worked with a fitness expert to show me how to train in the gym and how to prep meals in the kitchen.

This allowed me to time collapse how long it took to get and stay fit. 

Hire a pro.

Learn the secrets. 

Get the results.

Stop spinning your wheels and wasting time. 

I apply this same way of thinking with my businesses, too. 

During my “come up” as an entrepreneur I worked with a slew of mentors, business coaches, copywriting experts and marketers so I can get better at my craft. 

I’d find someone who has the type of lifestyle and income I want, and I’d hire them so that they could show me what to do and what pitfalls to avoid.

In other words, I find people to help me get results faster… because success leaves clues. 

A personal trainer and a mentor can do a lot of things for you, except for one thing. The work

No one can do that for you, but YOU.

The Rules Of The Game

At the bottom of all my emails, I have what I call “The Rules Of The Game”.

For me, these are the non-negotiable rules that I will always lean into in order to reach my fullest potential in everything I do.

In this post, I want to share these rules with you in greater detail so that you understand why these rules are there and how they help me… AND HOW THEY CAN HELP YOU, TOO.

I suggest that you create your own rules as well, or adopt mine.

Rule 1: Choose purpose over pleasure.

This is a sign of a disciplined person. The poorly disciplined will choose pleasure and ease over purpose and duty. I can’t tell you how many people I know who say they want a successful business and financial freedom but waste time screen sucking on social media or Netflix.

Choose hard over easy and you’ll have an easy and awesome life. But it takes personal discipline to do the hard things when the easy things are so easily accessible.

Rule 2: Action alleviates anxiety.

This ties in with number one above. Most people who experience anxiety do so because they avoid doing the work or having a tough conversation, or what have you. Anxiety is the anticipation of future pain. And the only thing that cures anxiety is action.

Rule 3: How you do anything is how you do everything.

You know this to be true. If you can’t keep your car clean then your home is probably a mess, too. And if your car and home are a mass then so is your workspace, mindset, fitness, and bank account. How you do anything is how you do everything.

Rule 4: Never negotiate with your inner bitch.

How many of your goals, dreams, and ambitions have you negotiated away? Inside all of us is an inner bitch and a beast. Who you do give the power to when it’s time to make decisions or act? Choose beast over inner bitch.

Rule 5: Winners are not allergic to hard work.

Do you know why winners always win? Because they’re not allergic to hard work. Winners do the work. Winners put in the time. Winners don’t stop when things get hard. Winners find a way because they’ll do what’s required.

What To Do When You Lose Motivation

At any moment, I was going to throw up!

My lungs were on fire.

Picking up my legs felt as if they were cement blocks.

“Do I quit? Do I fake a hamstring injury? People would sympathize. Or do I finish this damn marathon?”

I’m not a runner. I’m 6 foot and 220lbs of awesome muscle.

What the F#&c am I doing running a marathon?

I hit the wall. HARD!

The 18-mile wall that every runner faces when running a marathon. And it was blocking my path to the finish line.

After 6-weeks of training, I entered my first marathon to challenge myself. And boy did I.

I was facing my biggest challenge yet.

The moment of, “Do I quit, or do I finish?” was about to be the defining moment that would dictate my life. Would I become a failure or a success?

I share this with you because entrepreneurs face “the wall” all the time in business.

The wall can be a lawsuit, economic recession, or a new competitor.

Right now, our wall is the coronavirus and the stupidity that is the government.

And it’s blocking our path to the mountain top—the mountain top of success. Many business owners don’t ever reach the top because of one reason: 

They’re not comfortable with the pain. They pump the brakes and stop short.

You see, pain and adversity cause you to grow – if you fight through it and don’t quit.

It helps you get the breakthrough you’re looking for.

Lean into the adversity.

I know it sounds counterintuitive, but trust me on this…

Attack it!

And that’s when the breakthrough will come.

This is how I defeated the 18-mile wall in my marathon race.

I leaned into it… and then finished the marathon.

Right now, we’re facing the wall together.

COVID-19, the lockdowns, and the government mandates are the wall we must overcome.

It’s caused a lot of pain, and we need to lean into it, attack it, and push through.

If not for any other reason than to show your kids (if you have any) that you are not a quitter.

Speaking of kids… If you have a son who’s 13-15 years old please take a moment to learn about the Squire Program. It’s a rite of passage experience into manhood that will be remembered for a lifetime.

3 Productivity Tips For Entrepreneurs

I get messages from people every day asking questions about how to have the right mindset, make more sales, etc.

These questions normally sound like “How do I ‘X’ so I can ‘Y’?”

You can replace “X” with:

  • Be more productive 
  • Make a 7-figure income 
  • Quit my 9-5 job
  • Stop eating junk food
  • Get in better shape

And “Y” is usually the outcome people want like:

  • To get more done in the day so I can make it home for dinner
  • Provide for my family 
  • Break out the rat race 
  • Have a 6-pack
  • Have better health and more energy

I share this with you because you’re about to discover 3 simple ways to get whatever you want out of life.

  1. Turn Off Notifications

Some of the most brilliant minds on the planet are working day and night to control you. They do this with your phone and the apps on it.

Every little thing on the apps you have on your phone is designed to suck you into their attention-draining black hole and to take you off track from your goals.

What’s their bait? Notifications.

Notifications are used to pull you back onto these apps.

The main goal of these apps is to keep you there as long as possible because that’s how they make their money.

This is how Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other companies keep you glued to the screen like sheep.

You’re not a sheep. You’re far from that.

You want to be a leader who makes their own path, right? 

So then for you to dominate your path, you need to turn off notifications.

Doing this will keep you in control and not a pawn in the BIG techs game.

  1. Start Creating Content Rather Than Consuming Content

If you have a business it’s not social media, it’s business media. 

Use every single social media platform you can to drive more traffic, leads, and sales into your business. This will help you create more income streams.

With these income streams, you can make a bigger impact on your family, lifestyle, and community.

For this to happen, you must stop consuming content and start creating content.

Imagine the business and financial leaps you’ll make if you started making content instead of consuming.

  1. Do The Work 

There’s no replacement for doing the work.

It’s the #1 way to get any outcome you want out of life.

Doing the work alone will set you apart from the wanna-be’s who waste time screen sucking all day.  

Watch after 6-months of doing the work, you’ll start making more money and getting noticed as a player in the game.

But not if you avoid the work and do “busy work” to put off success.

Turning off notifications, creating content, and doing the work has helped me get to where I am today.

Even in these crazy times, my businesses continue to thrive for one reason… I stay focused, avoid distractions, create content, and do the damn work. 

And it can help you.

What I’ve shared with you is the most basic equation to have success in 2021 and beyond.

One more thing…

I want to help you. And the best way I can think of doing that is by giving you a free copy of my Wall Street Best Selling book Man Up. GET IT HERE.

How to Build Grit and Mental Toughness

This past Saturday I wanted to shake things up a bit, so I decided to not go to sleep and instead walked 31 miles through the night.

You might remember that I do these six week challenges that push me out of my comfort zone to test myself and continue to grow as a person. 

So I decided to do something a little different this Saturday night. A sunset to sun up city hike that would take place Saturday starting at 5:00 PM as the sun went down and end Sunday morning at 6:30 AM at sunrise. 

I invited anyone at HQ who wanted to join me and 5 people got in on it. 

Myself, Diana, Erin, Bryce, Byron and Max met up at 4:45 PM in Chino Hills and at 5:00 PM as the sun began to dip we set off on our hike throughout Chino Hills, Diamond Bar and Chino. 

The hike ended on Sunday morning at 6:30 AM when the sun started coming up. 

31 miles in total on foot over 13 hours. 

“Adversity introduces a man to his highest self” 

This is one of my favorite quotes… and it is very true in my experience. 

Take anything simple, like walking and make it hard by doing it late at night when you should be sleeping, in the cold (low 40s temp), up and down hilly roads and see who you really are at mile 31, 13 hours in. 

At the halfway point, at around 11:30 PM we were all feeling good and accomplished. 

I even heard someone say “we got this!” 

Lots of great conversations, connection, deepening of relationships and building grit! 

During the second half of the night as the blisters began to form on our feet and as quads, hamstrings and hips began to cramp and knot up, as the cold began to bite our exposed skin all while sleep deprived… shit got real! 

That’s when you meet who you really are. 

That’s when the inner conversation really begins. 

Self-talk is interesting when you’re freezing, in pain and sleep deprived.

If you pay close attention to what you’re telling yourself and how you’re feeling in that state, you really get to know who you are. 

That’s also when you get to meet the REAL you… and you’re given the opportunity to become the person that you really want to be.

It’s in that moment (or hours) as you’re painfully limping throughout the cold city that you understand this quote the best: 

“Adversity introduces a man to his highest self” 

Because you can quit. You can just stop.

The truth of the matter is that adversity introduces a man to his lowest self as well… 

…if you go negative and quit.

On Saturday night no one quit. 

I can’t say I didn’t think about it for just a fleeting moment. 

But I can tell you that no one quit. 

And that feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction and personal growth that you experience when you do something that less than 1% of people are willing to endure is just something magical. 

The lesson here is this… 

If you choose to do hard things, life becomes easy. If you choose to do easy things, life becomes hard.

How to Stop Feeling Like An Imposter

Imposter Syndrome. It’ll mess you up in every category of life.

I’ve seen successful businesses crumble because of it.

I’ve seen marriages fall apart.

And I’ve seen people lose their health.

All because they felt like they didn’t belong in a place of success in their business, marriage, or health.

They felt fake.

They felt like imposters and so they subconsciously sabotage everything to validate how they feel.

What I’m about to share will help you overcome feeling like a fraud.

It’s been my biggest life hack to getting rid of Imposter Syndrome.

If more people did this, they wouldn’t be so harsh on themselves or perfectionists.

And there will be more millionaires in my opinion.

You see, the average person has over 6,000 thoughts a day. The majority of these thoughts are negative and self-critical.

Sadly, it’s how our brain is hardwired after millions of years of evolution. But it’s how we’ve been able to survive as a species.

This negativity impacts how we feel, look, and talk.

I see this happen all the time with entrepreneurs today. They practically destroy themselves with negative thoughts and self-talk and then wonder why they can’t seem to catch a break.

They can’t get out their own way.

They pick themselves apart until there’s nothing left.

I share this with you because I used to do the same thing.

My head used to be filled with negative thoughts. And if I made a mistake, I’d beat myself up for hours if not days.

So how did I turn it around you ask?

I started talking to myself the same way I talk to my dog, Cookie.

Think about it.

How do you talk to your dog?

You talk to it with compassion, kindness, and love. It’s all positivity.

And if they do something bad, you can’t stay mad at them forever.

You forgive them and tell them that you love them.

I’m not saying to let yourself off the hook each time you screw up. But I am saying to give yourself a break and don’t let the punishment drag on.

If you screw up, own it, acknowledge it, and move on like the badass that you are.

Don’t you think you’d be more successful and happy?

How to Grow Your Business Faster In 2021

There’s a wrong assumption about leadership going around today.

People think leaders can find the answers to any problem by digging through the weeds themselves.

And those who think that are dead wrong.

Don’t believe me?

Let’s take a page out of history.

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, do you think President John F. Kennedy was on a ship outside the Cuban border? No.

Why would the decision-maker of the FREE WORLD be on a damn battleship?

He would be too close to the action, which would lead to a disaster.

Not because he could get killed, but because he wouldn’t have the mental space to make a rational decision.

So instead of being on a battleship, he took time in the White House garden to find moments of silence.

In these moments of silence, he was able to figure out how to avoid World War 3 or the end of the world.

I share this with you because the same thing applies to business.

It’s why I tell all my entrepreneur coaching clients to stop answering customer support tickets or doing work that they can pay someone $20 an hour to do.

Let someone else do that, so you can get moments of silence to find ways to grow and scale your empire even bigger.

A great leader does a lot of thinking and delegation.

Here’s one of the best tools you can use to find your answers in silence.

It’s a tool that’s survived the test of time.

In fact, emperors, scientific geniuses, and billionaires use it.

It’s called journaling.

Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Emperor, journaled.

Albert Einstein, Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist, journaled.

And so does Richard Branson, the multi-billionaire.

Journaling gives those moments of clarity that help you see the answer you’re looking for.

We use this in The Project.

We have each person write down what’s happening…

What they’re going through…

What breakthroughs they’re experiencing.

With them journaling, they’re able to find moments of silence and make life-changing breakthroughs.

If you’d like to find the answers to your problems, be silent.

Journal and do some deep thinking.

It will help you keep your sanity, make rational decisions, and be a better leader.

How to Become a Millionaire Entrepreneur

I was watching Jumanji: The Next Level with my daughter, and I realized something.

Why the f*ck did they make another one?

The first one was okay but there’s no need for “The Next Level” but this is when I realized something about entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship is a real-life Jumanji.

Like in Jumanji there are levels to the entrepreneurship game.

There are always levels to beat… and each new level unlocks new challenges for you to overcome as well as new opportunities and new levels of personal growth.

Here are the levels every entrepreneur must get past…

Level 1: $0-$1,000
Level 2: $10,000 – $50,000
Level 3: $50,000 – $100,000
Level 4: $100,000 – $500,000
Level 5: $500,000 – $1,000,000

But then there are the hidden levels…

$10,000,000

$100,00,000

$500,000,000 and more.

These are the levels that YOU should be aiming for!

See, I’d rather see you BIG goals and not hit them, but fail forward. Instead of setting small goals and actually hitting them.

But the truth is that most people don’t get off their butts to even get to level 1, let along strive for the hidden levels.

And some get comfortable at the lower level and NEVER realize their full potential.

But let me tell you this…

There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to build an empire.

But if you’re reading this, odds are you’re driven for more and you know it!

But like in Jumanji, these Empire Builder Levels come with a guide. These are called mentors.

Mentors are the real-life cheat codes to the entrepreneurship game.

They help you find the path to the top quicker.

They help you avoid the dangers that come with each Empire Builder Level.

Mentors simply help you time-collapse your window for success.

So if you want to get the real-life cheat codes to the entrepreneurship game, get a mentor.

If you’d like me to mentor you to multiple 7 figures and beyond then apply for my 12 Month Mentorship Program here.

Your future is much brighter than you think!

The Pandemic Of Weak Men Continues

There’s going to be another pandemic…

…it’s already been happening, only now it’s spreading further and faster!

And like COVID, it started out small. But now it’s getting bigger and bigger.

In the past few months, it’s spread like wildfire.

It’s consuming everything in sight.

Infecting anyone who gets near it.

What is this new pandemic?

It’s the weakening of men. 

It’s the inner-bitch pandemic.

Here are the symptoms:

  • Bitching 
  • Complaining
  • Losing your killer instincts
  • Feeling like a victim
  • Constant anxiety
  • Feeling depressed 
  • Getting fatter and deconditioned 
  • Being broke and in debt

These symptoms are super contagious.

The more you allow yourself to wallow in them the weaker you get.

Soon you start finding other weak people to surround yourself with. 

Misery loves company and you’re getting miserable, man. 

This infection will make you feel and act like a victim!

You’ll bitch and complain about what’s happening, and how it caused you to fail.

This will then attract other people infected by the inner-bitch pandemic. 

You soon become a magnet for the weak. 

Then all of you will huddle together and bitch and complain about everything.

You’ll talk about your past and how things were better back then. 

You’ll complain about your wife and her shortcomings. 

You’ll complain about your business or your career. 

You’ll complain about the government and the politicians. 

But you know what you won’t complain about?

The one thing that’s holding you back from being a strong, confident, and capable man. 

YOU.

The cure to the inner-bitch pandemic is realizing that YOU are the one who’s making you weak.

It took me years to realize this.

And I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I have.

So here’s what you need to do.

Harden up. 

Commit to building a strong mind. 

Commit to building a strong body. 

Commit to your goals and dreams. 

Stop quitting. 

Own up to your failures.

Own up to your excuses.

Own up to your shortcomings and make them your strengths. 

The way you get rid of the inner-bitch is to confront the things that are keeping you weak! 

Face it head-on.

And force yourself to MAN UP!

When you do this, your life will change forever.

To your success,

Bedros

How to Succeed In Business and In Life – EVEN NOW

The problems that most people have right now will not go away.

Covid will not go away.

The election bullshit will not go away.

The economic downturn will not go away.

They will still be there… at least for a while longer.

And they’ll be there for the next election if you don’t listen to what I’m about to say next.

Let’s take the election as an example…

The election doesn’t dictate your success.

YES, I worry about our country.

YES, I worry about the erosion of our rights.

YES, I worry about the future of our nation.

BUT, I know I’m in control of a LOT more things that will impact me and my family than any president will ever be.

Here are the facts…

Whoever is the president won’t make you an “overnight” success or a failure.

The person who can make that happen is YOU.

This election is a distraction.

It’s a distraction for your business.

Your family.

And your goals.

I share this with you because people can’t stop talking about it.

Biden this.

Trump that.

Enough with this sh!t.

I’ve made millions under Obama.

I’ve made millions under Trump.

And if Biden gets into office, I’ll make millions there, too.

So can you.

Regardless of who’s ass is sitting in the White House, your success is up to you.

It’s YOUR responsibility.

Want to make more money and give yourself and family a better life?

Then consider opening up a Fit Body Boot Camp studio in your town – fitness is recession-proof and Fit Body Boot Camp studios create recurring and predictable income.

People will always need to exercise and want the help of professionals to keep them fit and healthy.

Don’t let an election take you away from your goals

If you already have a business, figure out how you can create multiple revenue streams.

Right now is the time to focus on the things you can control… your health, your mindset, and your money.

Focus on closing out the year strong… and then take that momentum into 2021.

Because while you focus on the election…

Many others are focusing on their business and future.

I’m focused on building my empire, not the election.

Consider this your WAKE UP call.

Focus on your goals and the things that YOU can control and not the election.
