In 2018, I was growing my company, KeyGlee, and doing 40, 50 transactions a month and making about $10-15K on those deals.
Looking at the above, you would think that I was living my best life, but honestly, I was miserable.
Every morning, I’d wake up thinking that if I wasn’t doing more or pushing harder than everyone else, I won’t get to the end of the cassette (for you young’uns reading this, Google a cassette and marvel at our technology from back in the day).
Basically, at that time, my thinking was if I didn’t get to the end of that program faster than anyone else, I was going to miss the meal.
To be honest, I wasn’t even sure what that meal was.
If you can relate to this mindset, despite whatever take home pay you might be getting, then you have the same mindset I did.
$10,000 a month on a consistent basis is great, don’t get me wrong. You get your bills paid, you keep a roof over your head, you put food on the table – that’s enough to be thankful for in this world.
For me, it didn’t seem like enough.
It’s not a matter of getting rich, either; it’s a matter of wanting to fulfill goals and achievements, while being joyous about it. It’s about making a difference in the world.
If you know me you know that mindset for me has been everything.
And one of the things that I’ve come to understand is that you can be successful without having to sacrifice yourself, your family, or your mind.
I had to do a lot of mental work where I could say, “I’ve done it. I’ve unlocked the secret.”
Once I unraveled what the purpose of the things I was doing, that secret was unlocked.
The myth is that we need to get rich first and then can find peace of mind, but that’s the backward way of looking at things.
If you don’t know who Matthew Ferry is, he is a teacher, a songwriter, and a best selling author who helps people like us to break free of those negative thought patterns that are keeping us from achieving our goals.
I have learned so much from this man and I was so grateful to have been able to sit down with him and just get a look inside that fantastic mind of his.

Your mindset is such a powerful driver of your life and honestly, you will be shocked at what that mindset holds and how it’s been limiting you from whatever goals or achievements that you want.
Check out the video above; it’s a long one, but as we mention, if you stay to the end, Matthew and I give a quick 1:1 to answer some questions that our live audience had.
They’re probably the same questions you have right now.
