Where you've been doesn't control where you're going!
Hey it's Gerry, I'm at the Texas Motor Speedway. The universe loves speed. You're too slow most of you. You need to speed up. You could go a lot faster in life. First is always better than best. Get movin' man!
I just watched a documentary called "The Resurrection of Jake the Snake." You know, the wrestling guy. And he's made this one line famous, and the line is: "My history does not determine my destiny." That sentence made so much sense to me, considering where I am today. Today I'm in Ottawa and my history is that I grew up in that house, right there, 116 Rochester, that's my history. My destiny is that I'm going to the moon, man. I just came back from a 20 city, 11 country, 60 day speaking tour. I know open for people like Tony Robbins and Jay Abraham. I'm not here anymore, and that's the interesting thing. If you look at where you've been, it doesn't necessarily determine where you're going. So keep your eyes on the...
Keep the Ego in check
Hey guys, it's Gerry. Everything's getting sound checked and perpared for a 4-5000 people who will be here tomorrow. I'm on right before Tony Robbins, I'm really excited about that. I got to fly in and sit in the front of the plane, I get to stay at a great hotel right across the street, I'll have thousands of people screaming my name and buying my product. You know what the danger is in all that? That it goes to your head. Keep a check on the ego. I've heard so many times, seen so many times, when an author gets a little bit of success, sees their picture on a book cover, and all of a sudden they start making demands and drinking their own koolaid, and thinking that they're all that. Don't do that. Keep your feet well grounded. Make sure you've got accountability to people around. Make sure you're still the same person now. Listen, once you've got lots of money, it's just isn't a reflection of who you are. Work on the ego, keep it in check. Keep in...

You gotta explore, man. Explore what gifts you have. Explore what you really want out of life. You gotta be willing to explore. You gotta be willing to try new things. Do that today. Spend some time thinking about what you could take on as the next level.
You're never going to convince me in a million years that it's ok to give up, that it's ok to think small. Listen, I'm staying at this hotel because I changed my thinking 30 years ago. You've gotta change your thinking,...
Why You Need to Master Fear
Hey, I'm not too sure about Victoria's Secret, but I am sure about this secret. I'm sure about the secret of fear. the thought I thought about, is a secret most people dont understand. And that is, if your goal in life is not scaring the pants off you, if its not causing you trepidation and fear, its probably too small. Take your goal, make it ten times as big, add a zero to it, do something, because the test of a good goal is that it should scare you. And that's the secret for today.
Come and see this. This building is abandoned. There's nothing here, you can hear the echo, its all abandoned. Never, never, never abandon your dreams. You don't want to end up with your life being a relic, like this place.
YES YOU CAN! Don't tell me you cant, you can! If you can think it, and ink it, you can have it. If you can hold it in your head, you can hold it in your hand. Of course you can do what it is you want to do. Go after it, no...
The Key to Making Great Decisions!
Hey guys it's Gerry. I'm on my way to Bucharest today. Hey, have you ever asked yourself about decisions and how good you are at making decisions? You know in Think and Grow Rich he devoted a whole chapter to decisions. And he said "wealthy people make decisions quickly and rarely change their mind." And yet people who had not accumulated any money and had experienced financial failure in their life, one of the things that characterized them is it took forever to make a decision and once they did make that decision they changed their mind all the time. If you've got a problem making decisions and you can't make decisions really quick, my suggestion is that you reread that book, Think and Grow Rich, and particularly the chapter on making a decision. That's my thought for today, and I think it's a pretty important one!
Remember, YOU ARE A STAR!
Hey, it's Gerry I'm in Bucharest Romania. My thought of the day has to do with that star. When I saw that star I thought of you. Listen, we're all stars. We may not have developed all stardom qualities yet. We may have let failures squash our star. But really we have to control the inner critic who tends to think we're not good enough, not smart enough, not the right age, not the right gender. Listen, believe me about this: you are a star, and don't ever forget it!

Dream Big, you never know where you're going to end up!
This is my thought for today: Dream Big! You never know what kind of house you could end up in. This is the house for the president of India, pretty nice digs isn't it? You never know where you're going to end up!

A Complainer never added anything to the world, except more Complainers!
My thought for today is: Make a deal with yourself that there will be no complaining today. We all have things to complain about. Try a day with no complaining, just let it go. Don't give fuel to it, just let it go. No complaining, that's my challenge for you today!

While exploring a tourist site in Malaysia recently I came upon a modern-day assembly line. I say ‘modern-day’ only because it happened recently. Truthfully, the assembly line was antiquated and it had no machines or technology.
The goal for this 10-man team was to take a pile of old bricks – thousands of old bricks and move them from an outside location, down some stairs to an inside location where they could be re-purposed into a new structure or be a part of a new wall.
Eight men all had the same job, catching the brick that was thrown to them and tossing it to the next man. The other two guys had slightly different responsibilities. The first guy in line had to grab a brick from the enormous pile and toss it to guy #2.
Number two passed it to #3 and so on until it got to guy #10. He received the tossed brick from #9 and had to place it in a semi-neat pile so that the bricklayer could efficiently grab it and construct the wall. (When he eventually...
