Attitude #21 – Miracle Zone. Live in the Miracle Zone! There’s no fear in the Miracle Zone, and you are constantly living in an atmosphere of expectation that you will achieve your Why in life no matter who or what tries to stand in your way.
You have to have faith to live in the Miracle Zone, because your success journey isn’t going to always be butterflies and roses. That’s why faith doesn’t make sense, but it makes miracles! The Miracle Zone separates you from the crowd of they and elevates you to new levels in life that you’ve only dreamed of in the past. Make your dreams a reality and live in the Miracle Zone!

Attitude #22 – Consistency. Everyone knows that I love the Food Network and other cooking channels. One of my favorite shows is Top Chef! The contestants are judged on their abilities as Chefs to win prizes and the ultimate prize of Top Chef. Many times, the decision as to who wins or loses is about the consistency of the food. The food presentation may be great, but if the consistency is not good, then the contestants will be asked to pack their knives and go home. The road ends for them because of the lack of consistency.
Similarly, if self-made millionaires aren’t consistently building their businesses, then the road to success will end. Consistency is not one specific thing in business. It’s your entire business! You must be consistent on every level from hiring a secretary to building a relationship with a million dollar client. If someone looks at your business from the outside, they should see a consistent trend across the board in every area of your business.

Attitude #23 – Resistance. Now that you understand the importance of being consistent in your business, the next step is being resistant to any negative influences that could hinder your success journey. Resistance builds strength.
Imagine constantly being in a game of tug of war against someone twice your size. You forcefully pull the rope in your direction, and your strength builds as you resist your opponent. As you continue to resist, you get even stronger and sooner or later you’ve won the game.
In business, the more you resist the enemy of fear, doubt and procrastination, the stronger you get in avoiding these distractions all together. Stay consistent, resist the enemy, increase your strength and you will become a self-made millionaire!

Attitude #24 – Prediction. Preparation predicts prosperity. Your daily preparation predicts your level of success – good or bad. I encourage all of my students to start their morning by reading their Why Card and saying their daily affirmations. This is contrary to most people that roll over and turn on the TV to hear everything negative that’s going on in the world.
Self-made millionaires are laser-focused and positively prepared for the day. They aren’t focused on the negative news of the world! Their preparation predicts their prosperity! My coaching students can predict what kind of day they will have, because they’ve set the tone with their Why Card and affirmations. So what if they face an adversity…they are prepared! Nothing will stand in the way of their Why and their ability to predict their own level of success as a self-made millionaire.

Attitude #25 – Expectation. Self-made millionaires expect to achieve their Why in life. They live in that constant atmosphere of expectation that we discussed earlier. Close your eyes and imagine you are opening a gift with beautiful red wrapping paper and a big gold bow. You get excited as to what’s inside and can’t wait to open it! You have an expectation that the gift is going to be amazing before you even see what’s inside.
You have to have that same expectation about your level of success. You may not see it yet but you are excited and know that it’s going to be really good. Expect greatness and miracles will occur!

Attitude #26 – Sowing. Self-made millionaires understand the undeniable law of sowing and reaping. You will reap what you sow in life, no question about it! I believe that giving should be one of the most important parts of achieving your Why in life. I encourage my students to give at least ten percent of their income to a non-profit group or their church.
Giving = sowing seeds of greatness = reaping a bountiful harvest. If you are reading this and saying, “John, I simply cannot give money away right now.” Don’t let that be your excuse not to give. You can donate your time and other resources. Once again, the law of sowing and reaping is unstoppable and will show itself in your life. The actual type of harvest that you reap is completely dependent on the seeds that you sow.

Attitude #27 – Courageous. One of the greatest stories of all time is of David and Goliath. When I say those two names, you can’t help but to picture this young boy facing this mammoth size giant. Of course, we all know the ending of that story, but what most people don’t know is that David ran towards Goliath. He didn’t run away from his enemy. When he was confronted, David ran right at him! Now, that takes courage.
Self-made millionaires face a lot of Goliaths on their success journey, and they must be courageous enough to run towards that Goliath instead of hiding and waiting for it to go away. Courage isn’t the absence of fear, but the ability to dominate that fear with faith to achieve your goals and dreams. Take a stand against your Goliath and run right towards it. After all, we know already know the ending to the story.

Attitude #28 – Determination. Self-made millionaires are determined to achieve their Why in life. No matter what adversity they face, they absolutely know that they will not quit until they’ve achieved their goals and dreams. Be determined to get rid of the old you and bring on the new you that is courageous and ready to fight for what you want out of life. Kick the old you to the curb! There’s no room for that nonsense in your life anymore. Determination breeds champions that are unstoppable on the relentless pursuit of their Why.

Attitude #29 – Speaker Control. Sometimes at events, the technology can get a little challenging and the speakers go in and out or sometimes don’t work at all. Usually, it’s because the wires weren’t plugged in right and someone other than my team tried to fix it. After that happened a few times, I took control of the speakers and my audio/visual team member was the only one that was allowed to touch them. I was able to control what came out of the speakers and who was responsible for that making sure all the wires were inserted correctly.
Similarly, self-made millionaires take control of their speakers – their mouths. They are able to hold their tongue in tough situations and speak the truth in others. Most importantly, they don’t allow anyone outside of their Mastermind Team to influence what comes out of their speakers and cross any wires that might cause them to say something that they normally wouldn’t say or should say. Let me ask you a question. Who’s controlling your speaker? Do you like what you hear? If not, start controlling the situation.

Attitude #30 – Achievement. Your number one achievement in life that you had nothing to do with is the fact that you were born a Champion. Your birth certificate gives you the absolute right to achieve your goals and dreams. No one can take that away from you, and no one can deny you that right.
Unfortunately, at some point, society takes over and your memory of that significant achievement fades. You begin to question your right to achieve success. Let me tell you again…You were born a champion and have the right to achieve your Why in life! Start saying that every day as you look at a copy of your birth certificate and nothing can stand in your way!

Attitude #31 – Commitment. Self-made millionaires are committed to achieving a level of success in their lives that they’ve only dreamed of. With that type of commitment, nothing is impossible. Commitment is the fuel for your dream and creates a drive in you that will never stop.
Quitters are not committed and committed champions will never quit! They just keep going and going and going no matter what. Are you committed to your Why? Will you do everything possible no matter what adversity you face to achieve your Why? Are you willing to pay the price for your Why? Stand strong and stay committed to yourself, your family and your dreams. If you don’t, then who will?
