Success Coaching - What Bill Gates and You Should Have In Common

He was just a teenager, but he was already displaying the powerful habits that would one day make him a billionaire.

I had to dart down to Atlanta on Monday for a business meeting with a partner of mine and grabbed a new book to read on the plane.

I really get supercharged for a good autobiography and I had one in my mist(you know that feeling?).

The teenager I was talking about was none other than the world's richest man, Bill Gates.

It was 7am, we were about to depart to Atlanta, and I dove into 'Hard Drive: Bill Gates And The Making Of The Microsoft Empire.'

I want to share with you 2 success insights and strategies that Bill Gates used to create his fortune which you can use to change your life.

You ready?

Let's go (buckle up).

(deep breath)

1) Success Environment - Out of the many themes in Bill Gates' life, the one success insight that always reveals itself, is that he managed to get himself around, positive, action-minded people.

The consistancy of this habit for him was incredible.

Starting when he was just a teenager, up to working with Paul Allen, who he met in college, and then Steve Ballmer, who is now CEO of Microsoft, Bill Gates was also seeking out WINNERS.

Yes, winners, people that were determined to supercharge their lives and 'crack the code' to achieve their dreams.

How many people are in your 'inner circle' right now that are 'ahead of you?'

I'm always looking for people that are doing better than I am in areas that I'm looking to improve in and there are many.

You need to do the same, hear me?

It's so important. Join a local business group, find a coach, and there are a bunch of other ways.

One of the many reasons that I put together 'Success Mania 2005', this coming September in Atlanta, Georgia, is because I want to be around 400 winners and 9 speakers who I can learn from. A full weekend of breathtaking life changes, that's what everyone there is going to experience.

Just by getting around the right people, I've been able to create monster increases in my in.come, just like Bill Gates has done.

Onward.

2) Wealth Confidence - Never underestimate the power of your commitments and decisions.

Let me explain.

When Bill Gates was a teenager, he told anyone who would listen that he'd be a millionaire by 25 years old.

Yes, his parents thought he was crazy, as well as many friends.

(we know how that is, right?)

But, Bill Gates had what I call 'Wealth Confidence'.

Like Bill, you want to take the shortcut to success and that means you need to believe in yourself and your talents. The long, hard road to your dreams appears when you trap yourself by limited, "I'm no good" thinking.

I've been there, done that.

It's not fun.

It's really not fun.

Listen, there'a hidden fortune inside of you ready to be released if you will just believe in yourself enough to take the NEXT STEP.

We all live at a fraction of what's possible for ourselves and we HAVE TO change that and never be satified on our personal development.

You in?

You ready to push yourself? (ask yourself this again)

I'm asking you, because that's what I'm demanding of myself.

That's what my goal is and I want to know if you're ready to join me.

You and I can create stunning results in our lives and you can give fear and doubt the 'one-two knockout punch' immediately and leap to your dreams. You really can.

If you're eager for help in developing the 'Wealth Confidence' because you're commited to raising your income this year, look at the P.S below.

Listen, let's make today 'jaw-dropping' through the simple steps we can take to move our lives forward. Simple steps lead to huge results.

Start putting yourself in a 'success environment' and do whatever you can to start building your 'wealth confidence'.

Because you're reading this, I know you're serious about your future and I'm excited to help you every step of the way.

Make your move.

Talk to you soon.
