QUOTES IN THIS PODCAST
“I don’t feel pressure; I just see opportunity.” – Larry Bird (Ray’s favorite)
“Commitment is doing the thing you said you would do long after the mood you said it in has passed.” – George Zalucki
“Don’t wish for things to be easier. Wish for you to be better.” – Jim Rohn
YOU ARE YOUR STORY
You don’t have to believe that you are your story. But, why wouldn’t you choose to believe it?
If you don’t like your current life, and you choose to say, “That’s the way it is. That’s reality, and I must accept it,” you will be right.
You won’t be right because it is an objective truth. You will be right because the words you say to yourself write the story that becomes your reality.
If you want to find intellectual arguments that debunk what I’m saying, you’ll find them.
I’m not interested in those arguments; I’m interested in the experiences of human beings whose lives offer irrefutable proof that your self talk define your beliefs, and your beliefs create your reality.
One of those human beings is today’s podcast guest. The trajectory of his life is one of the most brilliant demonstrations of the statement that you are your story.
Our guest is Randy Gage, an internationally respected and recognized prosperity mentor, an author who has written eleven books that have been translated into twenty-five languages, and a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame who has spoken to more than 2 million people across more than 50 countries.
Did I mention that he also loves to play softball?
It’s important to mention that Randy Gage is a multi-millionaire and a millionaire maker. His friends and business associates include some of the world’s most powerful people of influence. I’m not writing this to impress you. I want to impress upon you that Randy Gage should not “realistically” be the mega success that he is today. You’ll hear him say so in this podcast.
Many of Randy’s early life circumstances would paint a picture of a man headed for a life of crime and/or dereliction.
He was a teenage alcoholic and crystal meth addict. He was a thief who spent his sixteenth birthday in a jail cell waiting for trial on an armed robbery charge. He is a brilliant, articulate, high school droput.
In his early adulthood, he failed to pay taxes on his restaurant business, and the IRS seized and sold his restaurant.
He almost bled to death from a gunshot wound in his stomach.
You’ll be inspired and even transformed (if your mind and heart are open) by the abundant blessed life Randy Gage created in spite of those devastating circumstances by intentionally changing his mindset.

RANDY’S FAVORITE QUOTE

MIGHTY BY CHOICE
Today’s podcast is an interview with a young woman who is mighty by choice. Her name is Caitlin Pyle. She believes, as I do, that anyone can be mighty by choice.
Her story is about her fascinating journey from living by other people’s rules to claiming her power and learning to live by her own rules.
You can listen to her story two ways. One, you can hear it and say, “That’s great for her, but my situation is very different. I can never do what she did.”
Two, you can receive Caitlin’s message and say, “Wow! She went from feeling powerless to feeling strong by making a decision to do so. I can make the same kind of decision.” Which option will serve you best?
Caitlin changed her identity story from employee to entrepreneur. That change allowed her to become a millionaire by age 30.
Here are just a few of the powerful inspirational nuggets you’ll take away from my interview with Caitlin Pyle:
- How she decided to wrap herself in strength, might, and power
- The only two sources of all your actions – fear and love
- How you become a magnet when you become a leader
- The two most important choices of your life – to be outer directed or inner directed
- The true meaning of guilt
- The true meaning of self forgiveness
- Why no one has the real power to bully you
- How to successfully work at home
- And, yes, there is much, much, more…

Procrastination Priority by Dan Sullivan
CAITLIN’S FAVORITE QUOTE
“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” – Henry David Thoreau
This podcast is my tribute to Dan Sullivan who writes brilliantly about the joy of procrastination.
Dan is the founder of Strategic Coach, a company that helps elite entrepreneurs achieve exponential success.
He is an original thinker who helps you (among other things) to reframe procrastination from a negative to a positive experience. He has written an entire book on the subject called “Procrastination Priority.”
He also does a podcast with another brilliant marketer, Dean Jackson, called “The Joy of Procrastination.” Dean, by the way, is the man who invented the capture page.
In this episode, I focus on three things that help you to liberate yourself from the weight and bondage of procrastination:
Also, I offer you this powerful thought that Dan expresses that can literally transform and enrich your life. “Self forgiveness is when you give up wishing that you had a better past.”
