1.	The One-Minute TIP

Successful individuals, business leaders and artists have 
fundamentals that guide them because success is a set of skills 
you can learn, apply and use. "If you do what successful
people have done, you will get the results successful people
have gotten." The New Science of Success is about showing
you how to achieve more, live better and struggle less.

2.  Welcome Notes

Our trees have leaves! Or, well, sort of. The buds have 
burst and our trees have the little beginnings of leaves 
sprouting all over. This is good! Today, Tucker and I walked 
in the sunshine and I was actually warm in a golf shirt. 
This is a good thing! Tonight the rain will return, but
there is no denying the hope of spring. I like it!

On a more serious and wondrous note, someone has said that 
"serendipity is when preparation meets opportunity." For 
weeks I've sensed that the "next big thing" was just around 
the corner, but I couldn't see it. Then, this week, a 
comment by a participant in the Git 'er Done program ignited 
fireworks in my brain. The "New Science of Success" seemed 
to emerge full-blown and "ready." I think you'll like how 
this plays out in the coming weeks. Watch for more on this!

And, a reminder that the Freebie of the Month, "Family 
Wealth Made Simple" has received a tremendous response. 
Folks seem to like it. It works, it makes sense and it 
"feels right." I hope you'll grab your copy, and of course, 
I hope you'll encourage at least five friends to get their 
own copy. Just drop them a short email and send them to:  

Finally, we had three more registrations for our World Class 
Life Conference this week and space is going quickly. We 
have folks from Germany, Canada and all over the U.S. I hope 
you'll join us! Time's passing quickly and you don't want to 
miss this powerful opportunity to invest in yourself, your 
future and your skills for success! This thing changes 
lives...and it's fun! Join us by registering at:  

3:  The New Science of Success

Last week on our Git 'er Done in 2010 call, I casually 
referred  to (and probably mangled) Jim Rohn's observation 
that, "Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is 
the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic 
fundamentals." During the Q&A at the end of the call,
Jenny from New York mentioned that she had never thought
about success as a skill-driven, predictable process.

Something clicked in my brain. I've always thought of 
success--in any area of life--as a set of skills that can be 
mastered and applied to achieve anything we truly want. 
Success is the predictable result of doing the things that 
others have done to create or achieve the results we want in 
our lives. As Tony Robbins has said, "success is the logical 
result of doing the things winners have done."

I spent the rest of the evening contemplating Jenny's words 
and my belief in the "learn-ability" of success. Before bed 
I reserved a couple new domain names and sent an email to my 
MasterMind partners. I think this new Science of Success
is important and could lead to big things.

Success and achievement in life--from parenting to fitness 
to money or time management, to wealth, fame, power or 
athletic prowess--is the result of mastering the 
fundamentals. It's about approaching the task as a problem 
to be solved, as a set of skills to be learned and applied. 
In that sense, as long as we live in a predictable, orderly 
universe, success is basically an engineering problem. What 
a concept!

I anticipate expanding on this in many ways, for a long time 
to come. I don't know where it will lead but here are some 
of my initial thoughts on the Who, What, Why and How of 

1.  Success comes to those who are prepared. Success comes 
to some people more readily than others, but the difference 
has nothing (nothing!) to do with luck or genetic talent or 
family background. It comes to people who are balanced, 
healthy, and structured. It is not attracted to scenes of 
chaos, drama, confusion or impulsivity. Success in the outer 
world is built on mastering one's own inner world. Get good 
at living on purpose, with balance, enthusiasm, focus and 

2.  Success comes to those who know what it is. Success 
comes to those who have defined their outcomes in advance, 
who know their purpose and are committed to their goals. 
Success is not about "a little of this and some of that." 
It's not about starting over or giving up when things get 
hard. Success is about defining what you want, knowing where 
you're going, and pursuing your goals with creative, 
persistent determination. 

3.  Success comes to those who know why they want it. 
Success comes from purpose and passion, from having powerful 
reasons for success. Successful people are described as 
"driven" by a dream or "pulled" by their sense of mission. 
They are rarely distracted, seldom confused and they never 
give up. It's often impossible to tell whether they have a 
dream or the dream has them. They stay the course because 
it's important. They have their reasons.

4.  Success comes to those who know how. Success requires 
effective strategies, solid plans, a budget, a schedule and 
talented partners, coaches and teammates. Success is not 
random! We live in a orderly, predictable world and 
successful people often spend more time developing their 
"blueprint" or "path" than it takes to achieve their goals 
once they get into action. Eager, impulsive failures tend to 
launch before they are ready. Winners focus on the plan. 
They know how their plan is going to work, and they work
their plan.

Happily married couples do certain things over the years. 
Successful parents use specific skills, behaviors and 
attitudes to help their children grow and develop. 
Successful athletes, business leaders and artists have 
fundamentals that guide them because success is a set of
skills that you can learn, apply and use. "If you do what 
successful people have done, you will get the results 
successful people have gotten."

Two final notes: More than most weeks, I would like your 
comments and feedback on this article. What do you think? Is 
it helpful? How will you apply these ideas? Let me know! 
Send email to:  

Second, while many things (the basics) remain the same from 
year to year at our World Class Life Conference, every year 
I develop a specific new packet just for that group. This 
year I am leaning toward an extended unit on the "The New 
Science of Success." Success and achievement are the 
logical, predictable result of applying the fundamental 
skills. If you would like to know more and master these 
skills, join us! Register at:  

4.  Quotes of the Week

“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue 
over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small 
hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone 
else's hands, but not you.”
     --  Jim Rohn

Persistent people begin their success where others end in 
    --  Edward Eggleston

“The best career advice to give the young is, find out what 
you like doing best and get someone else to pay you for 
doing it.”  
     --  Katherine Whilehaen

“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, 
neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily.”
     --  Zig Ziglar

5.  Strictly Business:  Your Key Results

I had a particularly important conversation with a client 
this week. He has built a wonderful business that is 
approaching $2 million in annual sales, and he realized that 
while he works hard every day, he is unclear about what his 
MOST IMPORTANT results or outcomes need to be.

Should he focus on sales or leadership? Is he supposed to be 
the visionary, or is his most important job to track the 
numbers and keep everything under control? 

Every task has one or two KEY outcomes and it is absolutely 
vital that you know what they are.

In sales, your key outcome is almost certainly the volume of 
sales you make during each reporting period. But to make 
that number, you have to know what the key factors are!

Over time, do you get more and better results from making 
cold calls or from servicing past clients? Are you more 
productive when you attend networking functions, or when you 
spend time with your biggest customer? Does advertising 
work, or are your sales built through long-lasting 

The answer will vary by industry, by company, and according 
to your own skills, personality and interests, but it is 
absolutely essential that you KNOW what your key results 
are, and the BEST way to achieve them.

Keep records, talk with colleagues, read, listen to audio 
programs and take classes, and most important of all, take 
time to analyze what works best for you!

Everyone gets more and better results with a coach. Too 
often it's true that "you can't see the forest for the 
trees." Get and use a skilled personal coach! The results 
will astonish you! Contact me at: 

6.  Resources and Tools for YOUR Success!

#1  The 15th Annual World Class Life Conference
      May 20-22nd in Beautiful Wisconsin!
      If not now, when?
      If not you, who?   

The most successful people in the world know who they are 
and where they are going. Living well can be defined as 
living a life of one's own. Too many of us spend our lives 
working hard, racing from here to there and chasing other 
people's goals! Don't let that happen to you! You DESERVE 
time to focus on yourself! You deserve time to clarify your 
major purpose and highest aspirations in life! You deserve 
practical, powerful strategies to make your dreams come 

Of course you do! And the winners in life TAKE the time. 
They INVEST in themselves, their skills and their goals. 
They network with the best people they can find. They attend 
the seminars. They plot strategy and make sure they are on 
course and focused on their most important priorities.

A great life does not happen by accident or by working 
harder and hoping for the best. Success in life -- total, 
balanced, fulfilling success -- is the logical result of 
doing the right things, in the right order, at the right 
time. The WCL has been the turning point for many, many 
people over the years. It gives you the tools and the time, 
the space and permission to focus on what you truly want for 
this one and only life. It gives you strategies that work, 
and the inspiration to work them. This May, make the 
commitment to create and live the life you truly want!

I hope you'll join us. Get all the info and register at:

#2   Use a MasterMind Alliance to Achieve Your Goals
       Get the Support, Advice & Encouragement You Need
       We All Need a Little Help from Our Friends  

Every winning athlete, and successful business person has a 
team of experts behind them. How would you like a team of 
hand-picked advisors committed to your personal success? 
What could you do with expert advice, wise counsel, and a 
network of successful people at your finger-tips?

Back in 1935, Napoleon Hill wrote that a MasterMind group 
was the one essential behind every successful person he 
interviewed! And yet very few people create a Mastermind 
team to help them achieve their most important goals in 
life! Now you can! Most people don’t know how or they fear 
they wouldn’t know who to ask. Now, I’ve written the manual! 
I’ve create a recipe so you can create your own MasterMind 
whenever you wish! I’ve included suggestions for where, when 
and how often to meet. I’ve even included simple scripts to 
get you started. Check it out!

If success is important to you, you deserve a MasterMind 
group to help you get there. Click for more info. 

#3   Make Your Website Work BETTER!
       Earn Passive Income!  

Over the years, I've paid lots of money for shopping carts, 
autoresponders and systems that were supposed to help me 
serve my subscribers and make money from my website. They 
all worked (sort of), but they were complex, confusing and 
didn't work very well. Then I discovered Don Schnure and the 
amazing programs he's put together. They work! They are 
powerful, EASY to use, and they let me automate my 
newsletter, my affiliate programs and my shopping cart, with 
no hassle! I love this! And, you can use it for 30 days to 
check it out. Highly recommended! (Full disclosure -- I earn 
a commission if you sign up for 1Automation, but I've used 
it for years and recommend it because it's worked really, 
really well for me.) 

7.  Humor:  The World’s Thinnest Books

My friend and colleague, Kristie Tamsevicious, sent me

not "politically correct" but they are pointed, sharp
and very funny. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
