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!

One of the things I am known for is telling it ‘straight’ even when straight isn’t always popular.
I’ve been a friend of Bill W. for over 40 years. Bill W. was the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. (AA) I guess it’s not too anonymous if I’m telling you J but as a teacher, mentor, and leader, I feel it’s important to tell the truth.
Before I was a ‘Graduate’ of AA, I was a ‘Sometimes’ member. Sometimes I’d go to the meetings and stay ‘dry’ – sometimes I would miss the meetings because of certain ‘circumstances’. What were the ‘circumstances’? I fell off the wagon!
For a while, until I learned new ways of coping, I fell into the clutches of three incredibly bad habits. The ‘Habit Demon’ would take over my mind and I’d get stuck in a loop of three self-destructive habits.
Gerry, what does this have to do with me – or my business?
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...
As I was standing outside the ornate and beautiful Casino Monte Carlo, I could not help but think, ‘How many people walk out of that building with a whole lot LESS money than they walked in with.’
No one goes to a casino to give up their money on purpose but the overwhelming majority of people lose. Ironically, many people lose more than just money. They lose their confidence. They lose their self-control. They lose their awareness of what is really happening and they can even lose next month’s rent or mortgage payment.
Contrary to popular belief, going to a casino or buying lottery tickets is NOT financial planning!
The beautiful building that is the Casino Monte Carlo was built, bought and paid for with OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY. Whose money? LOSERS' money. People consciously went into the building, placed their bets – LOST – and the Casino survived. That the Casino is still in business is a testimony to the fact that people keep...
