    What a fantastic mentor to meet personally. Brian Tracy is one of the BEST. My favorite words from your notes are “You are 1 skill away from doubling your income.” Just goes to show you, never stop learning!

    Wow! you must have been writing all day! I love Brian Tracy too, have several of his books, and heard Jay Abraham interviewing him. I’m sure, much as you missed the littlest Floren, it was time well spent. 🙂

    Wow, Brian Tracy is my all time favorite motivor.

    He inspired me to write a book on how to get over a divorce in 7 steps.

    Also The Fundamentals of a Successfull Relationship.

    Lately I wrote The e-mail Butler

    and The Revolutionary Internet Marketing System

    Thanks Reed.

    Hi Reed,

    Man I am overwhelmed. I received my starter kit from Success University today and they sent me a CD by Brian Tracy {Success Mastery Academy} with 12 topics on Maximum Selling Strategies. After reading your article I am
    anxious to listen to the CD. The set also included one by Jim Rohn and Zig Ziglar. I enjoyed this article so much. Thanks for all that you do Reed.

    Hi Reed,

    Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reading your notes. Thought I would also share one of my favorite sayings which I read every morning before I start working.

    ” Watch your thoughts, they become your words,
    Watch your words, they become your actions
    Watch your actions, they become your habits
    Watch your habits, they become your character
    Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.”

    Please keep sharing the good stuff Reed.

    I would like to share with you one of my favorite
    Brian Tracy quotes…”Never give up. Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want”
    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Reed for sharing with us what you had learned from Brian Tracy. Although I’m not a U.S. resident, his name rings a bell. I think he conducts seminars outside of U.S. If I’m not mistaken he had been to Malaysia before and I would love to attend one of his seminars if he comes back again.

    I believe if one keeps one’s focus on whatever one wanted in life, one is sure to succeed.

    “Law of cause and effect
    Thoughts are causes
    Conditions are effects”

    I learned this a long time ago, but the way it was put here was brilliant. I need to come back to review these a few more times. That audio is a much appreciated feature.

    Brian Tracy is one guru that I would be listening to!

    Green with envy that you did one-on-one with the man Reed – lucky you!

    ‘What is your most valuable financial asset? It’s your earning ability.’ I would be inclinced to say that it is your ‘learning ability’. Education leads to opportunity and paths the way to the bank vault.

    Love Brian Tracy! … Le classique!

Well, I don’t envy you, one day I hope you will be like him. Thank you so much for sharing. What you give comes back to you many times over. Please continue soaring…

    Here are my concerns from my experience from other mentors:

    You want to have the person you’re talking with…have them speak 100% of the time…and the ONLY time you say anything is if you’re asking questions. Also, by asking the person “Do you have any questions or concerns?” You’re opening up for problems. The person asking the questions is the person in control of the conversation. Never let the other person ask questions, or if they do, make sure you answer it with a question.

    Also, if you say “Why don’t you give it a try?” They ONLY thing running through their head is all the reason why they shouldn’t give it a try….which will give them reasons NOT to purchase. The correct way is to say “What’s running through your head right now?” and “Is it ok if you give it a try?” This makes it THEIR choice to take the ownership on moving forward and also the quickest way to get there.

    Also, he says to be focused on the sale. That’s the farthest thing from the truth. Forget the sale, focus on helping the person at hand. That is the ONLY way to build trust within the person so that they’ll purchase anything from you forever. Brand Loyalty. That’s why Donald Trump can sell bottled water, clothes, and so many other things….not because the stuff is any better than anyone else’s……just because they trust him. If Donald Trump was ever focused on the Sale, nobody would trust him.

    Just fyi.

    Kent 🙂

    This is great. There are so many gems here. “Vote yourself off the island” – I love that.

    He talks about other people’s negativity, but we also need to beware of our own negativity. He mentions self-esteem and positive self-talk, but we need to become more aware of when we are undermining ourselves. Often, it’s very unconscious. I talk about this in my book “The Key to Everything” – just click on my link.

    Reed, Thanks for posting this. I am quoting ‘YOU’ quoting Brian Tracy on my Leadership Paper for my MBA in my Leadership course. Ironically, in a very round-about way, it was Brian Tracy’s words from a seminar that lead me to get my MBA now rather than putting it off. I have listened to many Brian Tracy tapes over the years and he is always spot on! An Executive Director from a local non-profit came up to me at a fundraising seminar and we were talking about Brian Tracy. She had just been to a seminar (this is probably in April of 2008ish) and mentioned the quote “Your weakest skill sets the top of your income”. I asked my husband what my weakest skills are and it seemed to be the tipping point leading me to obtain my MBA now! I was searching for those words and couldn’t believe it when I found your site!

    In a roundabout way, Brian Tracy indirectly lead me to my MBA this year rather than next. It was this quote that decided it, “Your weakest skill sets the top of your income” (Brian Tracy, 2008, as interpreted by Reed Floren who attended his conference).
