Speaker 1:

So I have a real love affair with the book, think and grow rich. I read it over 60 times. Uh, and, and what happened for me is I got lucky. I'm going to admit it was luck that I discovered the book when I was in college. So in the early eighties, I was at Purdue university and I discovered this book thinking grow rich. I still have it right here. It was a paperback edition. And I read that book and I had, I had one of these clarifying decisions in college. I, I read the book and I'm like, uh, I thought, Oh, maybe this book is a little Corny, but it really resonated with me because these stories were actual history. Uh, and uh, and here to polling hill went and took all these people that were very successful and distill down the knowledge that you could think and grow rich.

Speaker 1:

I like to say, why table, what you think about, you bring about. But the clarifying decision for me in college was I realized that I could take a thought and turn it into physical reality. And, and so I like a, if you're thirsty, you're thirsty, you have that thought, I'm thirsty. You could turn that into reality and go have a drink of water. Like you just did a, you know, so you can take your thoughts and turn them into reality. And I could do it in bigger and bigger things. And when I realized that I controlled it like it was a, it was in college that I got this personal responsibility. Now I will say you cannot always control your circumstances. Life can throw hard balls at you. But what I, what I realized in that moment of, of reading the book was that I couldn't control circumstance, but I could control my response to that circumstance. And that really changed the course of my life. And I had a lot of success coming out of college. I was very um, disciplined, kind of like you are with the ironman. I was disciplined in these, these, uh, the disciplines of success that are talked about in think and grow rich. And he, he shows you how to, how to build your faith and your self confidence. And I did all that and I got pretty successful and I thought, boy, boy, I really love this book.

Again, thank you for being here. Without a doubt.

Speaker 1:

I guess I've been busy little, it seems like I've been a busy boy, but uh, no, it's uh, it's been a blessed path and, and I was, um, I have worked from home for 25 years, so that really helped me to, once I got the ground rules with my wife Beth down, uh, these last 25 years working from home, give me a lot of flexibility and freedom to really dig into, you know, getting, helping people get results. And that's really, I think when I lined up with that, I think that's why God put me on the planet, is to help people take control of their lives by taking control of themselves. And so when I started to align with, uh, maybe my divine purpose, things really started to workout a lot better. So, so it's been, it's been really good.

Speaker 3:

It's a unique story that you share and I think it'd be pivotal for everybody that's in your prisons, these community that's seeking to have freedom and lifestyle and make decisions for themselves as compared to maybe those that are led or guide or that they don't have any choice in it, but just, just a little snippet of a, that little baby boy of yours that led you to make a significant change in life. She'll a little bit about that and your story with family if you don't mind.

Speaker 1:

Uh, yeah, yeah. I think a mg, if you take nothing else away from this podcast today, this show is that if you will take the time to make a clarifying decision, I would say that was the number one action step is for you to make a clarifying decision. And let me tell you what that is. A clarifying decision is kind of this bigger decision that, that makes for you. It eliminates for you hundreds of other decisions. Right? So an example in my case was, um, I came home from a business trip and my son was about one year old at the time and I was, I was gone for like three days and I came home and he acted like he didn't know me and I said, Beth, but what's going on with Bo? What, why is he giving me the cold shoulder? And said, well, you were gone for a while.

Speaker 1:

He forgot who you were. You know, he'll warm up in a few days and that night, um, that really kind of hit me emotionally. And I also realized that when I came home from school, both my parents worked. So I came home to an empty house. And so I had all this emotion and that night I made this decision that I was going to do whatever it took. I made this clarify decision that I was going to work from home. And so starting that next day, uh, you know, I had a regular kind of a corporate job at the time. I started working on that. Now. It took me a year, but a year later, uh, and so I was only looking at things that I could do from home. And I also started looking at things that had no daily operations. So I was looking at businesses and things I could do that had no daily operations that I could work from home.

Speaker 1:

Uh, and it took me a year, but a year later I broke free. And, uh, that was about 25 years ago. And so for 25 years, you know, um, I, I've been that stay at home dad and I, I was able to coach all the teams and be there, you know, when they came home and, uh, and really didn't travel that much. And I travel a little bit more. I have got the empty nest now. Both of our kids are, are out of the nest. And so I do travel a little bit more for mastermind meetings, but, but I'm not really a big traveler but, but anyway, making that clarifying decision really set up a so much in my life and eliminated all the noise of those other decisions. Right. So I think that that's, that's really key. If people could take that away, how powerful it is to make that clarifying decision

Speaker 3:

that is so unique. Everybody, when you think about it, whether you made a clarifying decision in your life, in some cases you may even identify with someone's made a clear sign decision for you. But, um, there are certain goals and aspirations that we can live into. The differences, we want them to be hours, the ones that we make. And that's what is so unique about what Blaine Glen brings to our conversation that let, let's kill that the onion a little bit because I read, think and grow rich as a 30 something for the very, very first time. And that book really, it's changed the way that I thought. Period point blank, the end. Um, you know, it got me beyond, uh, just going into work and you know, and being a good employee, not that those aren't significant things. I mean, you've got great CEOs that they're, they've accomplished as a result of reading think and grow rich. But it's where we are in our own space at the time. We'll be get our hands on the book and you've taken another level. I mean, there's a rich history of going back now, having, guiding a public domain access and then going in and doing your book think and grow rich a study edition. Let's, let's peel back the onion a little, but what was the impetus desire? Just kind of let us delve into your world and share with anyone the significance of your work on this book study edition.

Speaker 1:

Uh, yeah. Yeah. So I have a real love affair with the book think and grow rich. I read it over 60 times. Uh, and, and what happened for me is I got lucky. I'm going to admit it was luck that I discovered the book when I was in college. So in the early eighties, I was at pretty university and I discovered this book, think and grow rich. I still have it right here. It was a paperback edition. And I read that book and I had, I had one of these clarifying decisions in college. I read the book and I'm like, uh, I thought, Oh, maybe this book is a little Corny, but it really resonated with me because these stories were actual history. Uh, and uh, and here Napoleon Hill went and took all these people that are very successful and distill down the knowledge that you could think and grow rich.

Speaker 1:

I like to say white table, what you think about, you bring about. But the clarifying decision for me in college was I realized that I could take a thought and turn it into physical reality. And, and so I like a, if you're thirsty, you're thirsty, you have that thought, I'm thirsty. You could turn that into reality and go have a drink of water. Like you just did a, you know, so you could take your thoughts and turn them into reality and I could do it in bigger and bigger things. And when I realize that I controlled it like it was a, it was in college that I got this personal responsibility. Now I will say you cannot always control your circumstances. Life can throw hard balls at you. But what I, what I realized in that moment of, of reading the book was that I couldn't control circumstance but I could control my response to that circumstance.

Speaker 1:

And that really changed the course of my life. And I had a lot of success coming out of college. I was very um, disciplined, kind of like you are with the iron man. I was disciplined in these, these uh, the disciplines of that are talked about in think and grow rich. And he, he shows you how to, how to build your faith and your self confidence. And I did all that and I got pretty successful and I thought, boy, Oh boy, I really love this book. So a couple of years later, I went and I bought one of the original 5,000 copies. And so they're, they, they say there's 100 million copies in print, but there's definitely tens of millions of copies out there. So I brought one of the first 5,000 and a, it's a hard back cover. And I was so excited about it. I got it in the mail, cost me thousand bucks.

Speaker 1:

Um, and I opened the book and the first page was different and I said, Whoa, Whoa, whoa. I went, I got my paper back and I said, wait a second, I never read that. And it turned out that there are these last pages, and that's why, you know, 90, 98% of the people who've read the wrong version of the book, which is kind of weird. Uh, but, but anyway, uh, the first page was different at the second page was different, and then the book had been updated in 1960. Um, and so there, there were some other changes, but the core differences was that Napoleon Hill gives a personal and instructions about how to read the book. And, uh, and so for the listeners, let me say there's two key instructions. The first one. Uh, so, so if you open your book, uh, and, and the very first page should say, what do you want most?

Speaker 1:

It's a big and bold at the top. It's a big question. Uh, what do you want most? Is it money, fame, power, contentment, personality, peace of mind, happiness? Um, basically what he's saying there is that before you read this book, you want to get really clear on what it is you want most because the book is going to show you how to take that desire if it's a burning desire and, and turn it into a physical reality. So you got to get laser focused. What is it that you want? Then the second page basically says, here's how you have to read the book. You can't read it alone. You have to use a mastermind group. And so there's a whole chapter in there about mastermind groups if you're not familiar with them. It's a collection of people that come together con kind of for a common good, a common cause.

Speaker 1:

And typically it's a peer group of people helping each other out. And so you had to do that. And, and at the time I bought that, the original book, my business I was running at the time was worth about $300,000. Uh, but I really want it to be a million dollar business. And I had a plan five, six year plan to make that happen. But when I did those two things, I got laser focused on the million dollar business. And then five months in a row I did a book study and I read it the exact way he said, and I shared it with people. Um, and within five months, that business went from 300,000 to a million. And I got into this thing called the million dollar club. And it was, it was really cool. But what happened was during that time when the opportunity for me to jump that business came about, I knew immediately.

Speaker 1:

Yes, that's the thing, right? Because I had been following all those instructions and, and doing, doing all those things in there. So, so anyway, from those books studies, I, I've probably done a hundred books studies now, uh, you know, uh, with different groups and with different people and things like that. And so I ended up, uh, writing, taking the thinking grow rich, the original text with the, you know, special. And I created a guide book for the book and then I did a book study which has some stuff at the beginning and end of each chapter. And I put all that together. Um, you know, uh, as kind of my gift back to society to make sure that you understand the book but then also to make sure that you read the right version cause cause most people did you go, that is dynamic. And I want to peel back the onion in insurance.

Speaker 1:

I'm, Oh, before we wrap up to actually where we can get a copy of the man. I've heard you talk about and even I don't have all the nuts and bolts on it. So there's this something that you call a results machine. What is that? Sure, sure. So, you know, there's this concept of it's very important for you to know where you want to go. I call that kind of your point B, you're moving from point a to point B, right? Uh, and it's most important to know where you, where you're going and you have to know where you are, but nothing happens if you're not moving across the line. And there's this concept of the results. Machines are these things that make your results automatic. It's the things that you do on a daily and weekly basis that move you across the line, right?

Speaker 1:

So, you know, you're, you're kind of a, you seem like a pretty disciplined guy like myself. So, so the, the odds are high that you have a morning routine. Um, so people that have a morning routine, that's one of their results machines. Um, and, and sometimes you have an idea of something that's going to make you results and you might turn it into a routine. But then if you could take that routine and make it automatic, that's what I kind of call a results of machine. And it's important to acknowledge what are these things that are moving the needle, to write them down or capture them somehow. And then to systematize them and make them machines, make them happen every, every week up. Another results machine is time blocking. So if I can time block time from, in my case, it's just a thing I need thinking time every week.

Speaker 1:

Um, but turning that into results machine is when I say, okay, my thinking time is Friday from two to four every week it goes to my schedule and it's never changes. Now if I'm going to be a traveling or something like that, then maybe I have to move it around. But nine out of 10 times, that's time blocked, right? So now I've turned that into, into a machine. A lot of things that people do on a weekly basis, like having a staff meeting or meeting with vendors, um, you know, or if you're in a mastermind group, maybe, maybe meeting weekly, right? So Mj, you and I meet on Tuesdays, you know, uh, for accountability. Uh, and, and that is that meeting that one hour a week really does drive the needle because it's at that meeting, and I'm thinking about my wins, but I'm also thinking about what's that top item I'm going to focus on next week. I've got to tell the group so I better be ready. You know. So these things that, um, that are moving the needle that you can set up a on automatic pilot, those are, uh, those are what I call a results machines. They'll get into it a little bit cause I want to keep going into this, this results machines constantly because there's different things.

Speaker 3:

The appraiser secrets community that they're doing to establish and identify leads in their business so they can actually be working on not just the price that they have on the desk, but the next one is going to be coming down the pipeline. There's other little systems, things that really would make their businesses go well. And so we talked about these results. Machines, you talked about a morning routine, time blocking. If you could give, uh, just a, a snippet of how, um, the community here to prison secrets might set up their own results machines. How would you break that down? Just kind of an a, maybe an ABC or maybe a, a one, two, three, four, something like that that would guide them along the way?

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah. Good, good point. So the results come into probably two categories and then two types. And so one category is personal, like the morning routine, right? Uh, and then the other category a is, is work, right? Um, and, and sometimes she will have, have one for their family, but some types of organizations are collections of people. Um, so those are the two. And then the types are daily. These are our machines that you're going to be running daily. And then there's weekly, there's these machines that run weekly. So, uh, you know, we gave some examples on the personal side, but looking at the group side or the work side, if they've got a business with, um, with multiple, with, with any kind of staff or employees, whether they're virtual or not having a daily huddle. So a daily huddle, maybe it's five minutes, maybe it's 15 minutes, that's a result machine.

Speaker 1:

You get that thing set up. It's a daily huddle happens here, whether your zoom, whether it's in person, whatever it is, you know, that's a result of machine. Somebody that's working for you. If they have a daily number, might be production of some sort. Um, you know, it could be a weekly number can number as well, but they have some type of number that they have ownership of. That's a results machine. Having some type of, um, uh, starting and ending routine. So you start Your Business Day with these things, uh, you end your business date with these things. Again, that can be personal or, or business. Uh, also in, in, in the weekly area, um, in the, in, in regards to the business, a lot of businesses have scorecards and those weekly scorecards, those are huge results of machines where you're looking on a weekly basis at the leading indicators of the business.

Speaker 1:

Right? So it could be number of leads, could be number of properties they've looked at, you know, whatever they're, they're measuring. Um, but having that weekly scorecard and then having a weekly meeting, right? A lot of, um, you know, a lot of people use, use things like traction, which is a methodology that has that weekly l 10 meetings. But having weekly meetings, especially with vendors, uh, you know, if you've got somebody that's running your paper click campaign or something like that meeting, even if it's with a lower level person in that, in that company on a weekly basis for 15 minutes, that keeps you top of mind, that keeps the needle moving. Hey, what are my page you use? Hey, you know, how this paper click doing? Um, so, so having these weekly meetings is, is a, is a huge one. Um, and then it could be talking to clients, talking to prospects, maybe evaluating a property. So every week you say, look, I'm an evaluate at least one, two, three properties, whatever it is. Um, and you put that time, you set aside the time to do that in the weekly schedule. So you set it up. So then it's a machine more than just a routine or, or an idea in your head.

Speaker 3:

Awesome. Awesome. I mean the fact that you're able to break that down, is it a personal work as categories and then the daily or weekly is giving a Chrysalis I really nice grid for everybody to actually look in. So I mean even as I was making notes of bed daily huddle, I, I would see that and when you probably were taught this is a daily huddle with the family, a daily huddle with your, your spouse or significant other, just that time right there can make a very significant difference in terms of the longevity to fruitfulness of those personal relationships. I love this. Having a number on a daily basis and a weekly basis is another excellent way to implement the results machines on both a personal and a work site. This is phenomenal. I've got my own little grid. I was started making anything sharing notes cause there's just so much good content here. Um, let me, let me kind of go on a little bit different direction, uh, as, as we continue to chat. But when you think about just your walk, this social entrepreneurship programs you've done, the coaching that you do, she would, everybody, what's the most important part of your day and how do you make the most of it?

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I mean, I think for me, um, I think for me the most important part of my day, that there's really two parts that, that I, that I enjoy. One is at the end of the day, um, I really feel like I don't like the end of the day without having the next thing planned out. So at the end of the day, sometimes they could be at night, but typically I like to do it in, in the afternoon. I like to plan out my next day. And so I, I call it NDP next day planning. And I really liked to, um, maybe I'm a little old fashion. I mean, I have a digital calendar in my iPhone, right? But I like paper, right? So I like to, I make a paper list, I like to check it off, get my hit of dopamine. But for me, it's planning out, planning out the next day. And I have this thing called three by three.

Speaker 1:

So when I plan out my next day, I put in my appointments that I have, but then I, I really schedule in, I look at what are the top three things that, that I want to get done now could just be one. Some people do a top one, but it'd be like, this day is going to be successful tomorrow. If I could get what, what three things done? I use three. Um, and I, I call it three by three because my goal is to finish those things by three o'clock. And so, um, one of the things that people could do if you could get to know yourself, uh, you know, that's one of the key skills that, that sometimes people often don't spend enough time on, but if you get to know yourself, like I'm, uh, I like, uh, I can work under a deadline, but I prefer, I'm energized by being ahead of the game.

Speaker 1:

So what I do is I get my three by three done. So at three o'clock I'm like done with the stuff that I was supposed to get done for the day. And so I start, I make my list for the next day, but then for a couple of hours I'm working on tomorrow's list. And so like a lot of times I go to bed with number one for the next day already done. And so then I'm like, so jazz, but it was just a mind game, right? Cause I could've started the day and I could have put 10 things on a list, gotten three done, and beat myself up for the seven that didn't get done right. So I am, I am getting to know myself and finding out how can I keep myself energized. So, so one of the favorite parts of the day is planning the next day. Uh, and then I would say waking up in the morning before the world attacks our day. I, I do enjoy the morning routine, which has some, you know, uh, you know, some, some religious items that I do some, some meditation, some exercise and, and really kind of reconnecting with myself and, and, and you know, thinking and taking care of my body and I really enjoy that.

Speaker 3:

That's good. I love the way that this is very individual for most persons. You know, when you asked that question, you know, what's the most important your day, you know, immediately goes right to the morning, but this dynamic can, you broke it down into two components. The fact that it is the end of the day, but it actually has a specific time. It's not five, six, seven o'clock. It's actually early afternoon, which gives you breadth and depth to have life after the work that's your actually completed for that day, three by three. That's, that's really pretty cool. I hope everybody was listening to the breakdown of what we're going to share because this is now again, I, I imagine you could do this just as well first thing in the morning, but that idea of no dice cell, cause you're early riser bureau, we Razi, if you're a night owl Boone, I now, but know thyself as you strive to thinking, grow rich and utilize your results machines and bringing them forest for the, with it gives you the best results individually for yourself. Playing. You've done a number of different dynamics, but uh, like a great planner, great individual wants to do more in life. You had a bucket list item that was very, very important to you. Please share the dynamic of your bucket list item.

Speaker 1:

Uh, yeah. For, for a number of years I've always liked, there's this organization called Ted. Uh, and they, they have a couple events in a year and they have a very defined talk. Now it has to be, um, these talks share just one big idea worth sharing. And this one big idea we're sharing has to be communicated in under 18 minutes. Um, you know, they're different. Sometimes they have a little different format, could be a little shorter sometimes, but the most you can talk is 18, and it's a very structured talk and it's a very high value talk. And, um, I was always interested in, in after seeing some of the famous people do these talks I was interested in, I wanted to do that talk. And so like a think and grow rich thing. I, you know, it made its way onto a list and I would think about it.

Speaker 1:

Uh, and, and I, I would just, I would really kind of look for an opportunity if I heard about things or, or, or share it with people. And I was presenting at an Arizona Market Association, so I help run that association. And, uh, you know, and I was talking with people about that. And then somebody there, uh, a friend of a friend said, look, I know somebody, they're having one of these tedx events, you know, in Fountain Hills, which is right next to Scottsdale where I live. And they said, look, I'm going to submit you for that. So you have to kind of be submitted. So I got submitted for that and I, they did an interview and I had some bits, some videos, and they said, yes, we will, we will have you speak. Um, and then the TEDX organization puts you through like six coaching sessions.

Speaker 1:

Uh, and then low and behold, uh, you know, I, I took that stage and uh, kind of got, it was kind of nerve wracking, but, but I did get my bucket list item, uh, done and it was, um, it was a great experience. And the other nice thing is that they curate that knowledge. So they have a big website, they put you up on the website and um, you know, you can kind of, it's a message that, that lives on forever and, and I think that's great. You know, even like the cool thing is that even this podcast, because you're putting it up online, you know, there's somebody not yet born that's going to listen to this podcast and extract some value from it. Right. So when you write a book, when you do a Ted talk or Tedx talk or you do a podcast or you, you put some value out in the world, just realize that, you know, you have the possibility to touch even those lives.

Speaker 1:

Not yet born. Somebody could be on Mars, living on Mars, listening to this, you know, in 20 or not 2100 years, 300 years from now. So it was, but it was a great talk and it was a little bit out of my comfort zone. Like I'm a trainer person, I don't like to talk about myself much. I'd rather talk about the training and help you. And they said, no, you got to get emotional. You got to, you got to, you know, give us your heart. And so that was a little different for me. So I ended up talking about my dads who pad. That's the way I'm the same day that my son was born and, and, but I turned that story into a teaching about why Teva. So it's this acronym, what you think about, you bring about. And, uh, so I did a teaching about that and I taught people something that you've probably seen me teach MJ at freedom founders mastermind groups, uh, is that you take this whatever you're trying to bring about in your life and you take a picture representation of that and you make that the unlock screen on your phone.

Speaker 1:

Uh, and then most people see that 70 to a hundred a times a day. And um, and so it, that's been working well for people. Good stuff. Good. You've been a blessing for us today without, except memorization did come back because there's more

Speaker 3:

that we can delve into without a doubt. But if you would, uh, share, uh, just best way to reach out, communicate with you, I have no doubt that this will be a number of folks here that are going to want to engage with you, uh, in your freezer Sukus community to get more information about developing their own results machine. Maybe getting a copy of your version of thinking grow rich. A book study edition kind of showed, I am said what's the best way to reach out and touch base with and get a copy of the book.

Speaker 1:

Uh, yeah, so to get the copy of the book, um, right now I did self published the book and you can get it@masteringtgrmasteringtgr.com and if you, uh, there's a promo code free ship, all one word free ship and that will give you free shipping on the book. So that's if you want to get the book, if you want to connect with me, I've got two different things. One is if you want to see that Tedtalk, I've got a very easy website for that. It's just Blaine, ted x.com. So the l a I n e t e d x.com. So Blaine tedx.com. And then you can see that Ted talk, you can also get a transcript of it. The other thing is talking about, you know, making this clarifying decision. Um, uh, as a concept I call forced clarity. And so I do have a, a free report on that@forcedclaritydotcomsojustthewordforcedandthenclarity.com and it talks about the four steps to gaining clarity and then how to find the time to do it. But it talks about mind dumping and making clarifying decisions. Um, and so I think that's, that's uh, that might serve you well as well. Outstanding. So the book can be captured at mastering to [inaudible] dot com and then there was a promo code, so thanks for that free shit. Is that all caps or can just put it in lower case letters? Anything. Yeah, all, all lower case. I it might work if you put a capital f but but all lowercase. Yeah,

Speaker 3:

or low kids is great. And of course we'll add the links in our description down here. So folks that get to it for gland tedx.com to see what certainly was a moving tedx talk to fill that bucket list of structure, you put the, make sure that you got it done. And the thank you very much for the force clarity as well. Great way for folks to kind of get in and get four different measures of or steps to begin that process so they can actually, so all of us for that matter can move forward. I love, again, that idea of putting out the dynamic of what has that been your shooting towards on that home screen, you're opening your phone because it's going to embed it right there in your eyes. Man. As a senior we, we probably open a sucker 40 or 50 times a day, but it's a great way to do so.

Speaker 3:

So without a doubt, blame. Thank you so very much for being here. I know that again, did you accept our invitation to come back? We've got so much more that we could, uh, I noticed you'd be willing to share within the precinct committee because this is where we take a valuation first or first to real estate, but we do. So knowing that we have to have the right mindset, we're only good as the next deal that we're doing it. And blend has been great. You shared it for concept methodologies and we can get clear on what is we want to accomplish and go after it by having a specific plans, uh, knowing what's the best part of our day and making the most of it. So again, blank. Thank you so very much for being here. I really, really, really appreciate it. Well, thank you so much Mj and you, uh, you are easy to talk to you. You got a caring heart, like I said at the top of the show and, and you're, you know, you're helping people, um, and, and you're coming from the right space and you, and you've got their interest in mind. So a pleasure to be on here. And I would say the bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot. So pilot another a good weekend, the two back in next week. There you go. Everybody take your care of God. Bless. Thank you again, blank was the assume
