From Homeless to Millionaire - 3 Success Lessons from Chris Gardner

Description: * Join my BELIEVE newsletter: My name is Evan Carmichael and I believe that the fastest and most effective way to build a business is to model the strategies of people who have already done what you're trying to do. I call it Modeling the Masters. Today we're going to look at how a high school dropout and homeless man would go from living on the streets and bathing in public restrooms to building one of the most successful stock brokerage firms in America. This is the story of multi-millionaire Chris Gardner and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "Find something that you love. Something that gets you so excited you can't wait to get out of bed in the morning. Forget about money. Be happy." - Chris Gardner Chris Gardner (born on February 9, 1954) was the only son of 12 children that was being raised by a single mother. His single mother was trained as a schoolteacher, but wound up taking on numerous part-time jobs in order to provide for her family. Gardner and his siblings were transferred back and forth between relatives and foster homes. His mother had been imprisoned twice; once, for allegedly receiving welfare while working, and the second time for attempting to burn down the house of Gardner's abusive stepfather. Gardner's prospects were narrow coming from an environment such as this. While on a sales call, Gardner met a man who was impeccably dressed and drove a red Ferrari. As fate would have it, the driver of the Ferrari was a stockbroker. When Gardner heard that the man was earning over $80,000 a month, he decided that his future lied in investments. He had no education, no experience, and no connections, but that was not about to stop Gardner from achieving his new dream. Once he had decided to become a stockbroker, Gardner immediately set out to find an investment firm that would give him a chance. In one brokerage firm, Gardner finally found a manager of a training program who was willing to give him a shot. However, when Gardner showed up for his first day of work, the manager who had hired him had been fired and no one else had ever heard of Gardner or his new position. He left with his hopes disappointed. Action Item #1: Get Excited About Something Action Item #2: Be the Best You Can Be Action Item #3: Remember Your Roots Quotes "Baby steps count, as long as you are going forward. You add them all up, and one day you look back and you'll be surprised at where you might get to." "That's when I learned in this business, it's not a black thing, it's not a white thing, it's a green thing. If you can make me money, I don't care what color you are. So that's how I deal with that to this day." "I was Chris Gardner, father of a son who deserved better than what my daddy could do for me, son of Betty Jean Gardner who said that if I wanted to win I could win." What Do You Think?

Album here: A special thanks to these guys for helping me make the bikes in Australia. Brian - @weezmgk Tom - @SydneyTom_ Bib Bishop - Actually turned the gears down in his shop. Couldn't have done it without Bob! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ GET SMARTER SECTION: A quick clarification.... It took me 8 months to learn how to do this, but I was only picking up the bike and running to the end of the driveway and back every day. I wasn't "ACTIVELY" trying to learn. Meaning... I wasn't struggling and trying to make my brain learn. I simply got on the bike every day, tried to operate it to the end of the driveway, turned around and tried to operate it back. The goal was to understand how my brain figured things out on its own, without trying to force it to. Many people have built bikes like this and figured it out in much less than 1 day by staying on the bike until they were able to master it. I had no timelines, and was using this as an exploratory activity to learn how I learn. Do not misinterpret this to mean that I struggled and tried very hard every day for 8 months. That's simply not true. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tweet ideas to me I'm also on Instagram, Facebook, and Reddit If you like what I do and want to support my efforts to create Smart kids and Smarter Every Day here are a couple of links you can use to help.

The Master Key System - Use It And Change Your Life - Charles Haanel

Description: Charles F. Haanel (May 22, 1866 – November 27, 1949) was an author, businessman and a true visionary. He was the President of the Continental Commercial Company, one of the first and largest international conglomerates in the world! In 1916, he published his Master Key System as a book, though originally issued as a 24-week correspondence course. The Master Key System is, quite possibly, the ultimate self-empowerment course and one of the best studies of the creative process available; particularly how your thoughts manifest into the reality of your world. You are warned: though the following course is presented at one time, each chapter is to be contemplated over one full week at a time. Please don’t try to drink all the water in the well in one hearing, but sip it slowly, week by week, to reap the greatest benefit. Cashflow is Contagious! is for anyone interested in the values that invariably lead to health, wealth and greater happiness. If you believe that working for someone else is just a temporary, though necessary, rest station for you and that financial independence is your ultimate destination, like I do, then support our channel.

Description: Motivation is literally the desire to do things. It's the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It's the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.

The Art of War is one of the oldest and most famous studies of strategy and has had a huge influence on both military planning and beyond. The Art of War has also been applied, with much success, to business and managerial strategies."
