And How I Can Help Change That...
Here you are, maybe you just finished reading a self help or personal development book and you are feeling great.
Flash forward a few days/ weeks and boom, you are right back to where you started.
Not really any better than before you started the self help book(s) and you are wondering why.
Sure, you come out of them feeling like a hundred bucks and maybe having a little more knowledge on a handful of these topics, but that is it, that's the problem.
You aren't sure how to implement these things into your life, or maybe you try a few things and it works for a little bit but you just can't seem to stick with it.
The "self-help" and personal development industries are selling you on that feeling you get after reading the books because then they can say that you felt better and learned something after the books, heck even the courses.
Then, once that feeling wears off you are left wondering what you are doing wrong and why it isn't working for you, it's because you never learned to properly take action on those ideas.
D*mnnnnn,. almost forgot, if you are new to the blog, thanks for stopping by! With MMNTM (mo-men-tum) my goal is to help you guys level up your mind and mindset with effective workouts. Much like you would train your body, this is the gym for your mindset, everything from your happiness and mental clarity to focus and productivity. These are the things that have helped me the most and I love sharing them with you daily on yourmmntm.com/blog so be sure to pop out daily!
Now let's get back to what you started reading for.
What To Expect in This Blog
The Underlying Problem in The "Self-Help" Industry
Its pretty widely known too...
As I said before, a lot of the information out there is "up in the clouds" and not actionable at all.
You feel good after reading the book even if you are not implementing anything you have learned, why? Because you have learned what seems to be a groundbreaking discovery in your happiness or mindset, and maybe it is, but you don't know how to implement that.
Essentially, the whole industry needs to get out of the clouds and start to actually come down and figure out how to help people.
This is not at all saying that their ideas as false by any means, because a lot of the ideas and knowledge that I have picked up in these kinds of books are very solid and actually totally changed my perception on some things.
There is just a gap between the knowledge and the implementation that needs to be bridged in order to make REAL changes in your life and not just feel good.
I think I can help you with that.
Why Nobody Is Doing Anything About This
Why would they?
As I talked about beore, you still get this feeling that you are changing your life after you finish a course or a book, even if you are not taking anymore action than you were before towards your personal development.
This is almost like a placebo because while you may think you are "more developed" as a person now, you really just have the knowledge that could make you more developed and you haven't taken action on it yet.
Many people don't realize this diffference and just think that the placebo effect they are feeling is real change happening in their lives and this is why the self help industry is such a large industry, because even if that is a placebo, you still feel f**king amazing.
The real change doesn't come until you get out of the clouds and down in the dirt and start taking action day in and day out.
Doing the things that are super hard at first and not just that easy first step of reading. Reading is essential but most people stop there because reading is easy to do and helps you feel productive, when in reality you aren't productive until you actually start taking real actions that will help you improve.
Let's get you all back down to the dirt and taking action.
The One Way We Can Start Actually Getting You Results
You have to start doing the actual work.
Whether you come bearing knowledge from the past or are looking for new knowledge and strategies for your personal development, here is the next move.
Time to actually learn some actionable strategies, this is how you get down into the dirt and out of the clouds.
Sure, staying in the clouds might feel like you are "grinding" but you really aren't going to get any physically closer to your goals until you start taking some real action.
From structuring your days differently to picking up new habits and making yourself uncomfortable on a daily basis,. you have to know what you are doing differently each day and why you are doing it.
When you know these things and start to structure your days differently, that is when you start noticing real change towards your development.
What is MMNTM?
Other than just the blog you are reading right now...
MMNTM (mo-men-tum) started as a way to help myself actually take the lessons I have learned over the years in personal development books and podcasts and actually put them to use.
I noticed I have been listening to all of these podcasts and reading all these books for years and was still pretty miserable in my day to day, even with all the knowledge I had.
Why? I'm sure you can guess my answer here: because I was taking no real action.
So, I started testing and testing for a while to see what would work and then put them into sort of "workouts" for myself and my mind.
I decided that those helped me so much that I should share them in a fun way and that's when MMNTM was created, a gym for your mind.
Each workout is much like a physical workout you would get at a gym for your body, but this time for your mind.
Helping everything from inner dialogue to your happiness and even confidence and productivity in work or school.
This is my way to help you get out of the "clouds" and into the "dirt."
I have these blogs almost daily and a lot of them include sample workouts at the bottom: yourmmntm.com/blog and the real workouts you will be able to purchase soon here >>
Some Real Ways to Get Started Helping Yourself
Finally, let's get you started with some real action to take on these ideas you have learned.
Normally, here would be some workouts based on what the blog was about, but since this was such a general topic I'll send you to some solid workouts on other posts you will enjoy!
If you are looking for a meditation practice but sitting and meditating doesn't really appeal to you, here is a great workout with new types of mediutations >>
In college or your early 20's and finding happiness hard to come by? Don't sweat it, I got you with this solid workout that has helped myself immensly and is actually very easy >>
Most people don't even realize they aren't thinking at their highest potential until they clear up their brain fog, that they didn't know they had, and start seeing how "new" they feel. This is a simple workout to clear that brainfog and start feeling "new" again >>
And just like that another day in the gym at yourmmntm.com/blog has come to an end. If you really enjoyed the article all I ask is that you bring one friend back tomorrow for the blog, let them know anbout MMNTM! Thanks again for stopping out and I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow.

Hey guys, welcome to part two of this blog series about growing on Instagram, which is one of my favorite marketing platforms!
If you have missed the first part of this series, here is a link to that blog post... which I highly recommend checking out before reading this one!
With so many strategies and things out there, I made this series to explain what was working for me and my Instagram accounts @profitingtools, @entrepreneur_motion, @wealthyunion and @rules2riches.
I am going to focus more on psychology and what to say in your posts and stories on Instagram in order to grow and gain followers in this blog!
It is one of the most important things for any marketing and many people don't take the time to figure it out... so I thought I could help you out a little!!
The New Instagram Algorithm
If you read my last blog post you would understand that there is a new algorithm on Instagram.
It is crucial to understand what that algorithm is and how you can beat it in order to get more likes and engagement on your posts!
Plus, understanding this algorithm and how to beat it is one of the best ways to grow and increase that follower count on Instagram!
If you have yet to check out that blog post I am going to link that below as well to read whenever you get the chance.
Here is the link to that blog post >>
You have to understand the algorithm that Instagram uses if you want to maximize your potential and follower count on this app!
Gaining Followers On Instagram The WRONG WAY
Okay well there are good and bad ways to grow on Instagram... even some ways that can get you banned from the app for spam. So might as well go over what those are first and help you avoid these "growth strategies" and save your account that you work hard on, each and everyday, from being banned.
The first strategy is a pretty obvious one to get banned or even just get followers that don't really care about your page is to buy likes and followers. While this might increase your follower count and likes, these are not people, or even real accounts sometimes, that care about your page or niche so they will never buy from you. This is just wasting your money.
The next strategy is using auto comment tools that leave comments like "nice post!" Or even just leaving these comments on profiles yourself. Honestly, they don't do anything and you are just wasting your time and money leaving them. They don't really increase your followers because who really cares if you get a generic comment on your post, that just shows lack of thought and effort.
Another REALLY POPULAR strategy is the follow/ unfollow strategy... Honestly there is better ways to get your account seen than this because you just grow through a ton of "fake" followers that don't really care too much about your brand or page! Trust me I tried it when I first started out and all it has done is hurt my engagement ever since!
This is because Instagram only shows your posts to a percentage of your audience in order to see how it performs first and if the percent they show it to is all fake followers then it isn't going to get engagement.
Finally, the strategy of posting a ton of posts per day, like one per hour, is crazy. Focus on quality content over the quantity of content that you are putting out! Posting this much will just get you marked as spam by Instagram!
Getting Instagram Followers The RIGHT Way
The right way to get Instagram followers is focusing on quality content rather than just posting as much as you can.
You have to give people a reason to follow you through your great stories, content, advice, etc. Otherwise what is the point of them following you? They will get nothing out of it.
Just think of it, you only follow people that give you value... whether that be advice, entertainment or friendship. There is really no other reason that you follow people other than you care about what they have to say. With that being said, nobody cares as much about your page as you and you have to realize and respect that!
The other mindset you have to have in order to gain Instagram follower the right way is thinking of Instagram as a community rather than just somewhere to post your content. You are creating a community on your page and you are part of a community as a whole on Instagram.
This means that you should be responding to the comment son your page, supporting people's page who support you and liking and commenting on their posts as well.
This also means liking and leaving real and engaged comments in your niche by searching influencers and hashtags in your niche on Instagram! This is how you build relationships that propel your success on and off of Instagram!

Marketing Psychology To Understand In Order To Grow On Instagram
Instagram is much more than just some random posts and captions thrown up on a social media platform... the posts on the top accounts are carefully planned out.
Everything from the captions to what the posts say... planned out word by word, even if it doesn't seem that way.
The best accounts have taken the time to figure out which words work the best and draw the most engagement. They spend time testing words both in the captions as well as on the images (depending on the account) and figure out which ones work the best.
This is a psychology strategy that I highly recommend testing on your account!
Two of the main marketing psychology points to understand in order to dominate on social media are the concepts of scarcity and urgency. These are two factors that drive sales and conversions in your online store.
Scarcity increases conversion because people think that they have to buy now or they will miss out. Which leads to the fear of missing out. They start thinking "what if this works? or what if I don't get this opportunity again?"
This is why you see so many online courses saying they are only open for a limited time before closing forever... this prompts scarcity and the fear of missing out!
The other important marketing psychology to understand is the sense of urgency. This is brought up through the countdown timers on websites or the "sale ends in____." This promotes a sense of urgency which directly correlates to scarcity as listed above.
A little bonus psychology tip Ill give to you all is using the power of exclusivity. Make exclusive content on certain platforms and funnel followers from one platform to the other! Works very well for growing on Snapchat and growing on Instagram from what I have found. Send them over to your accounts by offering exclusive content they can find nowhere else except those platfroms.
Strategies To Grow on Instagram
I am going to show you a few of my favorite marketing strategies that incorporate the psychology that I mentioned above... definitely recommend trying out these strategies to start seeing some results in your business!
Strategy #1: I mentioned this above but it is one of the best strategies for cross promoting on social media platforms, I mainly use it for Instagram to Snapchat, as it is hard to get followers on Snapchat.
This strategy is mainly just putting up exclusive content such as strategies or tips for your niche on Snapchat and then promoting that on your Instagram stories and Instagram page in order to send people over there. Make sure to include your Snapcode and Snapchat name in the post or image so they can add you, or if it is a story just include it in the next story so they can tap and see your Snapcode.
This strategy is effective when you get the right wording by using words like "hurry before this content is gone forever" or "This course will never be at this price again so head over to my Snapchat in order to claim this deal."
Strategy #2: This strategy is super effective, especially on Instagram and that is offering giveaways on your page! When you do this though you have to keep two things in mind...
The first things is that you need to make the giveaway worth while for your followers so it makes them actually want to share and tag their friends. The bigger and crazier the giveaway the more traction it will get!
The next thing is in relation to the captions....and that is to do the giveaway in steps. When you mention ho they can enter to win make sure to write out the steps in the caption. Actually write out "Step 1, Step 2, ....." as this is a proven wording strategy to help people engage more!
Strategy #3: Another great strategy for Instagram is to promote your products for a limited time and have it put "scarcity" in the minds of your followers. This is seen through offering a product for a limited time only like people do when they have products for a few weeks only or if they close their courses for a long time!
This is one of the best strategies, more focused on the side of selling on Instagram and not so much growth but you could use it to grow as well.
A way you could use this strategy to grow would be to combine it with strategy number tow where they have to follow certain steps in order to be able to sign up for the exclusive product. Then, just make the certain steps like "follow my account" or "tag 3 friends" this is how you propel your growth!

Thanks for the support,
Feeling like you aren't getting the results in business, or even not sure how to start making that extra money for your family vacation or to pay some bills?
Common situation that many people run into as money controls everything around us and if you don't know how to make more of it you can feel stuck in life
I have been in the same position, and am still on my journey to wealth right along with you because it never stops, we just grow and set bigger and better goals.
I sat for years not knowing what to do to make money but constantly knowing that I wanted more out of life. Sitting in class, day dreaming about the world out there and all the possibilities that are out there for things to do outside of "the normal job."
I started trying out everything from selling extra stuff on eBay to running a small electronics eBay store and even trading stocks to make extra money. I also started many small businesses and started to figure out what works and what doesn't work in relation to both business and adding a side income.
It takes more work than many think to add a side income, well worth it though as the payoff in both freedom will be well worth it for us all in the end.
This is an part of the journey of life and entrepreneurship that we all go through and getting through can be a little easier when you learn solid strategies around how to grow your business or even just add that income stream to your life to bring in that extra money each month.
Looking to start making a side income or figure out how to grow an existing business you have? Well this might just be the best investment that you can make in yourself and an investment in yourself is always the most important investment!
And all for the price of a Chipotle burrito each month? What could be better, you were gonna spend that money at some restaurant this month so why not stay in for one meal, yes just one, each month and make an investment in YOU?
We know many entrepreneurs are facing the problem of not seeing any results in their business and many people are just looking to add that side income but they aren't sure how to do so. And after working with entrepreneurs and businesses just like you for years, i started to see what was working for people and the ways to implement the strategies where people were and were not getting results.
That is the goal with our monthly Profit Guide Magazine... to help you discover these strategies to grow your business and add income streams so that YOU aren't stuck in the position so many entrepreneurs are where they don't see results so they give up.
We want you to start finding results so I put together the strategies we see to be working the best that month, ways to improve existing strategies and even the newest tools and resources for you to increase your profits and income!
The Profit Guide
The guide I create for you each and every month is irreplaceable... it is the strategies and tools others charge you thousands of dollars for all in a simple guide every month.
Get the guide on the 15th of every month, see what you can improve from last moth's strategies and then add an income stream if you are looking to each month.
I also believe that personal development is one of the most important areas in your life that contributes to your success so along with the income strategies each month, I am going to give you some of my favorite resources for personal development and strategies I am using to improve myself that month.
How long have you been struggling to find the results you have dreamed of since you started that business of yours? How long have you been wondering how to make more money in life so you can have a little more freedom?
My guess is a while as that is the case for many people.... well this is your solution to that problem you are having and all it takes is a little belief in yourself and at the price of a Chipotle burrito.
Think about it, a burrito is a one time satisfaction, you eat it and then it is gone and you are full until the next meal.
This guide that you get each month can last months, years or even a lifetime... finding the strategies that will keep making you money ad the resources to help you do so. The gift to yourself that keeps on giving!
So, time has come to make a decision to keep living how you are or step up and take that leap of faith towards the life you have always dreamed of. These are your solutions and your results... let's make it a reality now.
Click the link below to do just that....
This is how people get "Lucky" in business and create massive opportunities.
Nope. Not a secret marketing or sales strategy that is "hidden from you by the successful people," actually there is no such secret. Just a secret around your mindset that can get you the results that these "secret marketing or sales strategies" people think exist would exist.
Here's how people "Get Lucky" in their businesses...
When you start thinking bigger and then taking action on those new goals, that is when opportunities start coming your way and in turn you essentially create your own luck in business!
So when you think or hear someone else say a person "got lucky" in business it was really just years of taking action on the bigger picture and finding new opportunities that allowed them to grow!
The Magic of Thinking Big
Just like the 10x rule, the Magic of Thinking Big is a book that helps you think at massive levels in order to achieve the results you dream of getting.
Rather than focusing on the action on the 10x level like the 10x Rule by Grant Cardone does, The Magic of Thinking Big focuses on thinking and creating goals that you can take actions on at massive levels.
These goals will not only blow your other ones out of the water, they will give you the motivation you need to start pushing towards them at 10x levels and taking real action around them!
This was actually the first business or self development book we read, way back when we started our journey and it has forever changed how I think about life and business,
It was recommended over a livestream by Andy Frisella and I just had to pick up a copy after I heard him talking about it!
Might have been one of the best decisions I have ever made as this book started a never ending journey towards the life of my dreams. It came into my life when I needed it the most and this book means so much to me on a personal level I would love if you guys checked it out!
The Magic of Thinking Big has helped shape my goals, as well as many people around me who have also read the book.
It rewired my mind to start seeing bigger opportunities and setting bigger goals with a real purpose behind them! This has made all the difference as I only focus on the big opportunities and play the long term game now instead of focusing on short term gains that get you nowhere.
For you this book can do the same, rewire your brain to start thinking at massive levels and stop wasting time focusing on small opportunities that don't benefit you in the long run.
Why waste your time focused on small ideas when you can focus on the large ideas that can create the life of your dreams?
Now how about you take some action now, learn but then actually take action on what you learn. Don't get stuck i the most common place entrepreneurs get stuck..
Learning and feeling like you are growing when you really are doing nothing to actually get towards your goals.
Take these books, learn and then actually take action to change your mindset and see the results start to form soon after!
Hope you all appreciate this book as much as I do!
The knowledge you get from books is irreplaceable. Simple as that.
Books dive into the life stories and lessons of some of the most successful people and help us save time on our own journey. Because when you can pay $15 to learn a lesson tat took others years and $1,000's of dollars just to learn then is there really anything that can beat that? And then they add a few of these essential lessons into one book and it can really be life changing.
Books have helped me more than ever in the past year, especially around the personal development field! When we were stuck and marketing strategies or even sales strategies still weren't getting the results I wanted then I turned to look inside of myself with some of the books that we will share below and that has made all of the difference.
I read about others who were in the same situation and saw how they were able to change their habits and mindset to help them get out of that rut and find success in their field. I was able to apply these lessons and habits into my own life and that is when I started ti see results... once I looked inside for the solutions rather than outside.
Reading can be a great option for you rather than just listening to podcasts, that is if you have the time in your day. It can be 2x more effective than just listening to podcasts as you work or are at the gym because a book requires your full attention to pay attention to the story lines and lessons. Hell, you could even switch out the podcasts for an audiobook every once in a while at the gym and start learning that way.
Highly recommend picking up reading if you are struggling to find the results you want as I was in the beginning of your journey! If you don't check out at least a few personal development books when you have been lacking results for a long time now, you are risking never adapting your mindset and changing it to one that won't hold you back. You owe it to yourself to make sure you are not the one sabotaging your own success!
Start with some of the books we are going to recommend later in this post and then the opportunities are endless from there.
The 10 Best Personal Development Book That We Have Found
I guess a little disclaimer before we give you these 10 personal development books-- they are in no specific order and they are just our opinion and the books that have helped us the most. SO lets get started....
It's that time again in the blog, where you have to make the choice or not. We can only give you so much help but it ultimately comes down to you needing to take action on your goals! So what do you say, don't be that guy that keeps consuming content and thinking he's an entrepreneur and then realize after years that you now have made no progress!
Take action and commit to your goals!
Have a great rest of the day,
So you started that business and now the results should be coming in right, but why aren't they? What are you doing wrong.. a common question and situation with newer entrepreneurs who have just started building their dream life.
You start looking for new strategies to start making more money or marketing your business better because that has to be the reason you aren't selling, right? What else could it be...
And now you are trying all of these marketing and sales strategies, none of which seem to be working, so your problem turns into this cycle of trying new things but never having them work... a way too common entrepreneurial situation with an easy solution.
This is when personal development is the answer, not the only time barbecue you should constantly be working on yourself, but just a really good situation. This is where you start turning to some of the best resources for personal development with podcasts such as The Gary Vee Audio Experience and books such as The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
These are the resources that can literally change your life, as they have helped me immensely, and we can't wait to share them with you!
The Best Personal Development Podcasts
As we have stressed in many other places, podcasts are our favorite way to learn as they are so easy to listen to and you can listen to them in places like the gym or car without having to make time for it like you do with a book.
This is no different than with the subject on personal development as they are easy to listen to and focus on, especially in the gym. With podcasts you are able to hear the thoughts on personal development from professionals in the field to entrepreneurs to even normal people. Because everyone has some insight that we can grab and use in our own lives.
There are a few of our favorite podcasts that we go to if we are focused on personal development...
The first one is called The MFCEO Project Podcast is hosted by Andy Frisella who owns the 1st Phorm Supplement Empire that made over $100 million last year... you could say he's a pretty solid guy to listen to around business as well as personal development.
The goal of this podcast is to help us become CEO in all areas of our life from business to personal development. Andy helps us take control and shows us the lessons he has learned from his decades of life and entrepreneurial experience!
Andy has one of our favorite personal development podcasts as he has what seems like countless pieces of advice from relationships to success and results as a entrepreneur.
He is down to earth and tells you how things really are... would defiantly recommend the MFCEO Project as a great starting point for your personal development.
The School of Greatness is our next go to podcast around personal development as Lewis Howes brings on some of the best guests who have reached "greatness" in their industry from pro athletes to successful entrepreneurs and even professionals in the personal development space.
Obviously the episodes that feature the professionals in the personal development space are the ones we recommend to start off. They are super easy to spot in The School of Greatness podcast feed as they have titles surrounding personal development:)
The other episodes, such as the one with Ray Lewis, are also great for personal development as everyone he brings shares their story and the development of their mindset as they went further down the path to success!
So those are the two podcasts we would start with for personal development but there are many more we can share with you on the blog post in the ear future based around personal development podcasts..
The Best Personal Development Books
Books, while not as easy to access as podcasts, can teach us some of the best lessons in personal development. Books can share even more lessons than podcasts can as they focus on one person or one topic and give a variety of examples around that topic.
We usually take an hour out of our day each day to read and then find other times where we have a quiet space such as on plane rides. It is essential, at least for us, to find a quiet place to read so we can fully understand and take away the lessons we are learning.
One more thing on books and personal development, it is a great idea to reread books in different periods of time in your life like a new year or a new relationship as you will take away different things each time based on your mindsets and focuses in that period of your life...
Now we are just gonna share one book that has really made an impact in our life as we have an upcoming post that will share with you our top 10 favorite books you should look into reading if you are looking to develop personally, as everyone should be.
Anyways, the book we had recently reread is called Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and it goes over the most important reasons why you are likely holding yourself back from success. These actually were everything we needed to hear as it covered why we might be holding our self back from making sales, receiving money and it even touched on relationships.
Ultimately this book helps you create the "money mindset" you need to make a real difference in your business and those you are helping. Without this mindset you are likely to keep many of the limiting beliefs you have that you don't even realize.
This book opened up our mind to those obvious thoughts we were having but didn't realize were holding us back.. it were those thoughts, not our marketing strategy that needed to change! Highly recommend this book that you can check out below!
Well, it's that time again.. time for you to choose whether you want to stay stuck in the trap of thinking its your marketing strategy that has to change or choosing to try personal development.
Hell, it could very well be your strategy that has to change but after changing it countless times maybe its time you look inside yourself for some answers or switch up your mindset. It has helped me a ton and it can very well do the same for you!
Look forward to hearing your stories,
One of my favorite subjects to talk to clients and others about as it has had a huge impact in my own life, yes personal development might be looked at as a scam by many but I can tell you from first hand experience that if you take it seriously you can attract what you want into your life.
This post is for all of you with businesses or even just ideas and starting to hustle because when you focus on what is holding you back personally you can attract the right things into your life.
I know it sounds kinda "scammy", exactly what I though when I was stuck and looking for better results in life and in business. That is until I went all in trying to figure out what was holding me back through some great books and resources that we can talk about later...
So I was sitting, probably where most of you guys are, in a position where you have started your business and grinding but not seeming to find the results you are looking for.. hell you could even be coming off of a relationship like I was and wondering whats next and why you are feeling the way you are.
The logical move for me was to turn to why things weren't going how I planned or imagined them to and then I was blaming others/ other things or situations when it was really my mindset that was holding me back.
I started looking into it and reading books such as "How To Win Friends and Influence People", "The Secrets of The Millionaire Mind" and "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". Even though I have read these books before I am a strong believer of rereading at different points in life as you take away different things each time you read!
Anyways, after rereading a handful of books and really taking time to look at my past and why I was being held back I finally started figuring things out...
First off my relationships were controlling my life and I was putting too much of my happiness attached to the person I was dating. I was also attaching their attention to my happiness so I was not happy if we weren't talking an felt I had to hold a conversation all day in order to be happy. This is not a good place to be in as you want to find happiness in other areas of life as well not all of it attached to one person!
I also did a deep dive into why my business wasn't getting the results I thought I should be. I found that it came down to me convincing myself subconsciously that I wasn't worthy and sabotaging my success. Once I changed that mindset I started attracting more sales and opportunities into my life because I felt that I was worthy of what was happening and started being open to receiving rather than just giving.
Well that was the story of how personal development helped me and my life most recently, and I'm sure I will have many more and so will you once you fully commit to being the best you.
Personal development has to be one of the most overlooked aspects of success and building any sort of business by people. How are you supposed to build anything or help others when you don't even have your own mind right?!
Well personal development will help you get that mindset right and help you attract the right things into your life like I talked about above. For example, once you fully accept that you are just as worthy as anyone else, you will attract more money and sales into your life. You can't just say you are worthy though, you have to actually dig deep and actually believe that.
So you are probably reading this right now and thinking okay, I'm committing to personal development but how do I start.. well here is your answer:

Just in: Ryan Blair has just dropped a new book recently that we have just come across and began researching! And let us tell you, it is a priceless book and we just had to share it with you!
Coming off of his original book, Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain, that goes over his story from gang member to multi-millionaire with a company that accumulated over $1,6 billion in sales, his new book is less about the story of Ryan Blair and more about the lessons he has learned.
While they do touch on a good amount of his story, the lessons that they include also are from any different parts of his life so you will get a ton of knowledge on him, his story and most importantly,
business and life!
Rock Bottom To Rock Star
As I touched on before, Rock Bottom To Rock Star doesn't focus on Ryan Blair's story, because that is what his first book (Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain) does very well! Rather his new book focuses on a few main things...
This is a can't miss book, even if you have already read his first book, this book has a different goal of helping us answer the many business questions we may have.. not just sharing his story.
Lessons that you can't learn in business school, straight from the guy who learned them, is there anything more valuable than that? Real life lessons that focus on what works and what doesn't in life, business, relationships, mindset and more.
This is what we focus on most when we are researching books, what lessons that they can share with us that we can't ins elsewhere. So mainly how this book will be able to save us time and money on our own journey when we actually start implementing them. This book meets all of those requirements and we couldn't recommend it more!
How Rock Bottom To Rock Star Fits On Our Journey To Success
Well now that we have shared some about this great book, how exactly can it fit into our life and on our journey to success?
After reading this book it is a great fit only if you start to implement the lessons that speak to you the most and that you could use the most help on.
By learning the lessons in life, business, entrepreneurship and relationships from Ryan Blair we are the able to save ourselves time and money having to learn these lessons ourselves. That means saving time testing what works and what doesn't in certain areas of business because he shares what has worked and what hasn't worked for him.
This means we can get going in the right direction on they path of success sooner so we can start to see results faster.
That is what we want isn't it:)
