What’s Different About Successful People’s Success Strategies?

What's Stopping You?

When I was working my way through university in the summers, I had a job at a totally rustic resort that was only accessible by sea plane – it was that remote!  This place catered to high powered American executives that paid quite a lot to stay in the lodge, fish, and just get away from it all.

There was no TV, no radio – it was a really peaceful place!

I was the only waitress working there, and I actually got to spend a lot of time sitting on the dock just chatting with these guys.  They were CEOs and top executives of some big companies – these guys owned tons of stock and they were very wealthy.

I was a bit intimidated by them because of that at first, but the experiences that I had as I spent time with these people through my summer job showed me that all these guys that were super super successful were really just like me – regular human beings (I know – I was surprised too! What’s Different About Successful People’s Success Strategies?

They showed me that there was no difference between me and them.  Even though I was ‘just a waitress’, they never treated me any differently or showed me any less respect, and I learned a lot just from chatting with them!

I mention this because it really served me later on when I got into the business I am in now and started working with these big name gurus – the people on the talk shows, bestselling authors, etc.

I know that a lot of my students kind of feel they are somehow separated from that – that they’re very different or somehow not on that level, which is just so completely not the reality of it!

Successful people feel exactly the same way we do. When they do succeed, they feel happy about it, and failure feels just as bad to them as it does to us!

Hey – Dreams Do Come True!

Hey   Dreams Do Come True!Now that the weekend is approaching, I am sending you a personal email asking for you to support a sweet guy and friend of mine, Sam Worthington.

Don’t worry – it will be FUN.  And no, you don’t have to send me money.   Ha Ha. I’m not asking for that kind of support.

Just take a friend or your spouse out on an enjoyable evening and please go see the AVATAR movie!  My friend is the star of the movie, he  plays the main character ‘Jake Sully’.  Info:

We go waaaaay back and I’m SUPER proud of him.

Besides, it’s a fun movie – I suggest you watch the 3-D version.  Very cool and nice message about our planet.

He is presenting at the People’s Choice Awards soon, yay!  

By the way – he has worked really hard at his career, he worried about the ‘next job’ as actors do.  He even spent some time living in his car.   Anyway, he is humble and grateful and very importantly works VERY hard at what he does.  And I think that is good for you to know.  He never felt ‘entitled’ to any success or for any leg-ups in this world.

So go watch the movie, and think of yourself and Sam – and know that dreams DO come true.  Just keep at it- like Sam.

Enjoy the weekend!


PS – for all you JV Club Followers – now YOU are 1 degree away from a major movie star!  Ha Ha.  But his hands are full right now, so please don’t send me ton of emails or requests to do a business deal or become a friend of his.  I will respect his privacy.  Hey – I’m not even posting all my private photos of him – same reason,  just this one great shot.

Much love!
