I’m excited to share something that I’ve realized over the last couple years that I think will be eye opening for you too.
From what I’ve experienced, there are only seven keys to changing your circumstances.
Seven. That’s it.
The thought of making a major change in your life sounds like a BIG thing, doesn’t it?
That’s why so many people just accept the life that they’re living.
They want more, but the thought of doing anything about it intimidates them.
It’s sad because when you really break it down, it’s a pretty simple thing.
In this post I’ll be sharing and breaking down each of the seven keys with you.
Key #1: REALIZATION
The first and most logical step to changing your life is realizing that what you’re currently doing isn’t getting you the results you want.
Just by reading this post you’ve already accomplished this first key. You want more for your family and you’ve realized that it’s up to you to do something about it.
You realize that unless you change what you’re doing, the direction of your life isn’t going to change. Right?
Don’t let this realization pass you by without acknowledging it.
This is a huge step. It’s the key that triggers everything else.
But again… it’s pretty simple, right?
Key #2: DESIRE
Now that you’ve realized that you want the direction of your life to change (Key #1), you’ve got to have the desire to do something about it.
This is what really separates winners from losers, if you ask me.
Realizing that you need to do something different is a big step, but the gap between realization and desire is huge.
There’s a great quote I heard recently that goes like this…
“I can teach you how to be successful.
But I can’t teach you how to want to be successful.”
I love that! It’s all about desire, baby! If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way.
Stick with me and I’ll show you the way that’s changed the direction of my life and the lives of many other sports parents on my team who are also full of desire.
When I decided to start my side business, I had a strong desire to be able to support my kids’ love of sports and their pursuit of reaching their full potential.
I still have a strong desire to do that.
But my desire has grown (yours probably will too) into creating financial freedom for my family and time freedom for my wife and me.
This business can provide both. It won’t happen overnight. It’s a process. But here’s the thing… it’s possible.
Financial freedom and time freedom aren’t possible with my day job and career.
It’s a definite possibility with the side business I’m building and helping others build as well. It’s just a matter of how badly you want it.
Desire is a powerful thing. So, what do you desire?
Key #3: VISION
What do you desire to change about your life?
Knowing what you want is where your Vision begins.
If you closed your eyes right now and pictured your ideal day, what would that look like?
Visualize every detail.
What time do you wake up? How do you feel? What does your surroundings look like? What do you have for breakfast? How does it taste & smell? Where do you go? What do you do? Who will be with you?
Before you reach a destination, you have to know where you’re going.
When you have a vision for your life, you know where you’re going. You know what you’re working towards. You can see it. Smell it. Taste it. Feel it.
Keep your vision in the front of your mind at all times.
I’ve actually created a digital vision board using an app called Evernote. I have statements and photos of my vision for my life saved in a notebook.
I review it every morning. Even if it’s just for a few seconds. Every time it gives me a renewed sense of purpose and excitement.
The combination of Desire and a strong Vision, can make you unstoppable!
I love this quote from Steve Jobs, “If you’re working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.“
It’s so true. I have a vision of helping 1,000 sports parents reach their financial goals. That’s what helps me jump out of bed every morning.
I know that there are millions of other parents who are just like me. Maybe you’re one of them?
They’re working hard in a job or career that isn’t allowing them to have the kind of lifestyle they desire for their family.
They’re stressing about how their kids’ sports get more expensive every year.
The last thing they want to do is tell their kids that they can’t follow their passion for sports because they can’t afford it.
Many times the financial stress causes arguments in a marriage.
I know that if I can help sports parents make extra income, then I can literally keep families together. I can keep kids from feeling like they did something to cause mom and dad to get a divorce.
That fires me up!
So where do you fit into all of this? What’s your vision look like? It can be as big as eventually making six figures and helping thousands of other families too, or as small as making an extra $200-$500 a month.
It’s your vision. But just know that both are possible with this opportunity. So don’t limit yourself.
Key #4: VEHICLE
This key will have a massive impact…if you choose wisely.
Now that you’ve got the Realization, Desire & Vision for changing your life’s circumstances, you need a way to make it happen.
That’s where finding the right vehicle comes in.
No, I’m not talking about a car, truck, or in my case…minivan.
I’m talking about THE THING that you’re going to use to get from Point A (where you are now) to Point B (where you want to go).
The vehicle that has changed the direction of my life is Network Marketing.
Without this vehicle, I’d still be parked in the same spot I was in 4 years ago.
Our three boys wouldn’t be playing on the club and travel sports teams they love and are so proud to play for. My wife Kim would still be working and our daughter would be in day care.
With this vehicle, we’ve been able to build a residual income business & help other sports families do the same thing.
There are other vehicles you can use to earn extra income. But in my humble opinion, there’s no comparison to network marketing – especially for busy sports parents like us.
The Inside Scoop…
OK, now that you’ve gotten this far, I feel like I can share with you the details about the company that I’m building a business with.
If you choose to join me, you’ll be able to build a powerful business that provides solutions for two of the greatest needs in America today: Health & Finances.
Imagine all of the people in your life who are looking for solutions for energy, nutrition, weight loss, stress, digestion, sleep, joint pain, fitness, sports performance and money.
Those are all solutions you can provide if you join me. Pretty awesome, right?
I love how our business helps empower parents to be healthy role models for their kids and provide for their kids like never before.
This is the most fulfilling work I’ve ever done. It’s an amazing feeling to know that every time you have success, it’s because you’ve helped someone else achieve something that was important to them.
I’ll Help You Learn More
I’ve put together a webinar (web video) that will help you learn all the details of the business. This will be a great way for you to learn more about the company, our products and hear a few stories of other sports parents having success.

Key #5: CONSISTENT ACTION
This key sounds so simple. Because it is. In fact, it’s so simple that its often overlooked. It’s actually the main reason most people don’t succeed.
Originally this key was just going to be “ACTION”. But the more I thought about it, “ACTION” isn’t specific enough.
You could take action for five hours today and then go for 10 days without doing anything. Put in a couple more hours, then nothing for five more days.
Technically, that’s taking “action.”
But the action is so spread out and sporadic that it’s impossible for your business to gain any kind of momentum at all. Consistency is vital. It has to be Consistent Action.
It’s easy to do one small thing every day that will get you closer to your goal.
The problem is…it’s also easy not to do it.
Choose your easy!
Give Yourself A Slight Edge
I base a lot of this thinking around the great book by Jeff Olson called The Slight Edge.
In the book the author provides awesome examples of how doing one small thing every day, over an extended period of time, gives you the Slight Edge over people who don’t have the discipline and desire to do it.
Olsen explains that the difference between the people who seem to have it all and the people who are constantly struggling is The Slight Edge.
The keys to mastery are found in the little things you do every, single day.
The little things that don’t look like they matter…MATTER.
They all add up and compound over time.
Here’s a simple way to make consistent action a part of your day:
Throughout your day, ask yourself a couple questions.
“Is what I’m doing right now leading me closer to my goals or further away from them?”
If what you’re doing isn’t moving you closer to your goals, then ask,
“What can I do right now that will get me one step closer?”
Then, stop what you’re doing and go do that one thing.
(Unless you ask yourself that question when you’re at work. In that case, go do that one thing as soon as you’re off work.)
Create unstoppable momentum
Doing at least one small thing every day, over a period of time, starts to give you something extremely powerful.
Once you get momentum built up in something as powerful as this opportunity, you don’t want to lose it. When it stalls, it’s hard to get it rolling again.
Have you ever had to push a broken down car? It takes a lot of effort and small steps to get it rolling on the road. Doesn’t it?
But once it gets rolling, you can keep it going with one hand on the car.
Momentum in business is no different.
Key #6: TIME
Changing your life isn’t going to happen over night. It’s a process that you’ve got to consistently work through.
Think of your life as a huge stone wheel weighing thousands of pounds that’s rolling down a mountain.
It’s built up years of momentum.
It’s going to take some time to slow it down, bring it to a stop and then get it turned around and moving in a new direction. Right?
Give yourself time.
You’re going to hit roadblocks. You’re going to have setbacks.
Keep going. If you continue taking consistent action, over time you’ll make progress.
How much time?
With the vehicle I use and I help other people use, you can start earning income in your first few weeks. You can start seeing significant income ($500+ a month) in a few months.
With that in mind, you should really come into this business with a 2-5 year mindset.
Don’t get me wrong. It doesn’t take two years to start earning income that can change your family’s situation.
But if you put your head down and go to work, part time, for two years, when you look up your life will be dramatically different.
You can build a six-figure business with two years of consistent, part-time efforts here.
$500 a month was my original goal when I first started this whole journey. I reached that in six months. I was at $1,000 a month in 12 months.
It’s continued to go up from there. I’m helping other parents on my team move a lot faster than I did. I can help you too.
Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams.
Average people give up on their dreams too soon.
I believe that you’re not average. The fact that you’re reading this post proves it!
You’ve already got steps 1-5 in your corner.
You’ve got me in your corner and I believe in you.
Now you just need some time. Great things take time.
Creating a life on your terms takes time.
They only way you can fail is if you quit.
But first, you’ve got to start.
Key #7: BELIEF
For any of this to work, you’ve got to have belief.
Belief in yourself.
Belief in the process.
Belief that you can change the direction of your life at any moment when you have:
- The Right Vehicle
- Consistent Action
If you can believe it, you can achieve it.
One of my favorite quotes of all time is from Henry Ford. He said…
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t…you’re right.”
If you don’t have that belief right now, that’s OK. I understand.
When you’re so used to your life being one way, it can be difficult to imagine it any other way.
But trust me. It’s worth fighting to create the belief that you can change it, because you can.
You can Change Your Circumstances, and I’m here to help.
Go get it.
