Create Your Reality

EMBRACE ALL CHALLENGES

You can run from challenges, or make friends with them. Choose the latter, and you will create your reality. Actually, you always create your reality. When you embrace all challenges, you create the reality you want.

That’s the theme that runs throughout this podcast. It is the theme of Eddie Lorin’s life. Eddie is our featured guest today. He is the creator of a real estate investment trust that allows everyone, yes everyone, to invest profitably in real estate. A person can begin their investment journey with as little as $1,000.

Eddie champions the underdog. Orphaned at seventeen, Eddie achieved success and fulfillment with grit, hard work, and a winner’s mindset. Now, he is passionate about empowering others who want to improve their lives.

You will discover many powerful life lessons and rich nuggets in this podcast. Here are just a few:

  • A message of hope and forgiveness from a holocaust survivor
  • The power of the Serenity Prayer
  • The rich meaning of Impact Investing
  • How to create wealth through contribution
  • How to develop an abundance mindset
  • How to turn blight into light
  • Luxurious living on a budget
  • Slashing taxes with Opportunity Zones
  • Why you should be thankful for what you don’t have

In a nutshell, this conversation with Eddie Lorin is all about self-empowerment. You’ll hear it in Eddie’s words; you’ll feel strongly in his passionate energy; you’ll learn it from our spontaneous dialogue.

Listen to Eddie Lorin’s story if you would love to turn any mountain into a molehill.

Accidental Success

SUCCESS & ADVERSITY

What is accidental success, and how is it related to adversity? The answer is fascinating, and it may not be what you expect.

Jeff Hall, today’s guest, has achieved massive success with Overflow Cafe, the company he created to help businesses master the SEO game and achieve high rankings online.

You may be surprised when you learn that his journey took him from one accidental success to another. Each time Jeff developed a new skill, he did it by taking bold action in the face of adversity. He put one foot in front of the other, even when we was stepping into the dark.

WINNING AGAINST THE ODDS

Adversity is relative, so what kind of challenges did Jeff Hall face and overcome? Here are just a few:

  • A childhood of abject poverty
  • Bites from bird eating spiders and fire ants
  • Derision as a student for having only one pair of broken down shoes
  • Humiliation for lacking the money to join school outings

DRIVEN BY PAIN

Jeff Hall’s outer world was often very tough. His inner game made him unstoppable, a trait he learned from his remarkable grandmother.

Jeff’s circumstances could have created a powerful victim story for him to live into. Instead, Jeff turned each painful setback into victory.

In this interview, you will learn:

  • How Jeff became a resourceful salesman at the age of seven
  • How he became a computer wiz without knowing a thing about computers
  • How lying about his age took him closer to success
  • How the name Overflow Cafe was just another accident

DISASTER TO MASTER

Today, Jeff’s knowledge and skill, and his company’s expertise offer businesses a powerful unfair advantage in our digital marketplace.

Love it or hate it, businesses need the Internet to grow and thrive in the 21st century. A key ingredient to growth online is strong SEO. Jeff and his Overflow Cafe offer you that.

It’s a wonderful ironic twist that a young man who knew nothing about computers became an internationally recognized SEO expert. He literally proved what one of my mentors, David T.S. Wood, often says, “Every master was once a disaster.”

You will find the life lessons and the business savvy in this interview with Jeff Hall eyeopening and highly entertaining.

You may even tweak your own inner game to make you unstoppable in the face of any obstacle.

Failing Forward

EMBRACE FAILURE

What is failure? And why has it gotten a bad rap?

Most of us have gone through an education system that stigmatizes mistakes. Make mistakes, and you get low grades. Make enough mistakes, and you fail.

Failing earns you the label of loser, a person of low intelligence. If you accept the label, you step into a low status identity. That identity becomes the frame through which you view the world.

CHANGE THE FRAME

Refuse to see failure as something negative. Answer the question, “what is failure,” like this. Failure is an important necessary step on the road to success. You’ll be in great company.

Thomas Edison is a prime example of man who delighted in failure. On the subject of his many “failed” attempts to invent the light bulb, Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

MINDSET – MINDSET – MINDSET

You may know exactly what the word mindset means. But until you experience the power of shifting your mindset, of changing your limiting beliefs (stories) to empowering ones, you won’t fully appreciate the meaning of mindset.

TODD PALMER

Today’s podcast guest is Todd Palmer. His story will nudge and inspire you to view the world through an empowering frame. His story will help you discover a mindset that fires you up and can make you unstoppable. Todd is a guy who failed forward to success. His answer to what is failure was always positive.

YOU WILL LEARN

  • How Todd turned massive debt into exciting opportunity
  • How to shift your thoughts from lack to abundance
  • How being a single parent can lead to enormous success
  • The power of life balance
  • Why DNA is more important that your resume
  • Todd’s 4 pillars of success for your business
  • The crucial difference between leadership and management
  • MUCH MORE…

Escape Story

This is an escape story. It’s about a clever man with an unquenchable thirst for freedom.

His name is Alex Gluskin. He tricked the KGB and gamed the communist Soviet system to escape from Russia at the age of twenty-six.

He loves talking about it. And, he’s a great storyteller. He will entertain you and enrich your mind in this podcast interview.

He grew up in a society that dictates what you should believe and controls your life with fear.

Many people resign to this enslavement. They accept their circumstances and call it fate. Not Alex Gluskin. He wanted out and got creative.

As he tells it, he learned to lie before he learned to talk. He mastered black market business by the time he was twenty.

He studied the world around him and foresaw the collapse of the Soviet system. He learned about North America and freedom. And, he made a firm decision. He would do whatever it took to leave Russia.

I won’t spoil the fun by telling you how he did it.  That would be like revealing the end of a great thriller. I’ll let Alex captivate and entertain you with his true life escape story.

Make no mistake. This story is not late night TV fluff. It’s got valuable lessons about creativity, networking, achieving massive success, and winning the life game with any hand you’re dealt.

Alex’s insight into the mindset of successful investing is worth the price of admission. He became a top investment strategist in Canada, made millions for his clients and himself, and retired to a lifestyle by design in 2005.

One of the most powerful things you will gain from Alex Gluskin is a deeper appreciation of your opportunities and personal power that are precious gifts of life in the free world.

You may think that you already know that. But do you? Really? The truth is that we all tend to take for granted the things we have always had. The things we didn’t have to fight for with our lives.

You may get a fresh perspective on the saying, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch,” a perspective that will inspire you to be, do, and have more. Much more of everything you deserve in life.
