Why 2018 Won’t Be Your Year, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO201

At the end of every year, people find excuses for why they didn’t do what they PROMISED themselves they were going to do. But then they say sh*t like, “2016 was practice.  2017 was a warm-up.  Now 2018 is game time!” Seriously? What a joke. They aren’t going to make a change. They aren’t really going to accomplish anything. And neither are you…but it’s probably not because you’re lazy. It’s something else. In this episode, I tell you what it is–and how, if you really want to crush the new year, you can. 

The 100-0 Holiday Mixer, ft. The Frisella Boys, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO200

This 200th episode of our podcast is like the f*cking box of chocolates that your Aunt Paula is going to inhale this Christmas. It’s an educational and entertaining assortment of stories, rants, and practical insights about everything from being fearless and aggressive to raising 100-0 mindset kids and understanding that there’s really nothing you can’t bounce back from in life?except death. My dad and brother join me in the studio, so you know things get interesting real fast.

Insanity, Intensity, and Becoming a Peak Performer ft. Tim S. Grover, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO199

You can develop the same drive for success as The Greatest of All Time?elite athletes like Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, and even Michael Jordan.  There is zero reason you can’t be a Hall of Fame level performer in everything you do in life. That’s what my friend Tim Grover says, and he should know. He is the one of the most revered mental toughness and performance coaches in history. Those guys I just mentioned? They chose to work with him.  In this episode, Tim and I talk about how YOU can be like them.

Why Your Goals Should Embarrass You, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO198

You know how many people who fully committed themselves to becoming a billionaire AT LEAST ended up becoming a millionaire or multi-millionaire? Every one of them.  But most people don’t get it. Most people still set “small realistic goals.” You can’t be like that if you want the kind of life that people would kill for.  You have to redefine what’s “realistic” and learn to visualize what’s possible, which is every f*cking thing you can dream up. So set massive f*cking goals!

Creativity, Conflict, and the Art of Making Millions ft. Randall Pich, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO197

What’s your excuse for not making millions? My friend Randall Pich was raised by his mom in extreme poverty, in one of the most dangerous parts of the country. Now he’s the very wealthy founder of multiple brands, most notably Live Fit Apparel, a top social media influencer, and a model for how to build an enthusiastic following around an in-demand brand. In this episode, we talk about the connections between creativity and business, and how these things apply to the art of making money.

Money, God, and Maxing Out ft. Ed Mylett, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO196

How does the story unfold for someone who is pursuing their dreams of millions of dollars? What are the stages of success and the critical moments along the way? How does the person who achieves something truly great think? What do they do? Ed Mylett, one of the wealthiest, most successful guys I’ve ever had on the show, shares his life story and lessons on money, God, and “maxing out.” Ed is the head of World Financial Group, a multi-million dollar financial organization.

Feeling Like a Fraud? Here’s How to Stop, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO195

When you begin developing into the person that you know you really are – and are meant to be – people close to you don’t always take it well. They push back. They mock you. They laugh at you. When that happens, most people (you?) feel like a fraud and don’t know how to power through the resistance they experience.  I know.  I’ve been there. But I figured out how to outlast that backlash, and in this episode, I tell you how you can, too. 

Chess Not Checkers: How to Live With Intent to Build Your Ultimate Success, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO194

A lot of people spend exorbitant amounts of time wondering what other people have that they don’t. Especially when we are in the beginning of our success journey. I know. I used to do the same thing! In this episode, I nail down the specific action that successful people (in any area of life) do that unsuccessful people don’t. I guarantee it will surprise you to find out what it is!

Comfort Isn’t Comfort, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO193

Many people in the world are in a situation that they find very, very comfortable. Maybe they are making enough money, are in good enough shape, and in decent personal relationships. Their lives aren’t terrible, but they are also not great. So they get into this mentality of not really being motivated to change the status quo. The irony is that this comfort zone is actually uncomfortable. In this episode, I tell you what that means, and why you definitely want to push yourself beyond your comfort level.

F*ck Your Moral Victory, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO192

Yes, you learn from losses. But you shouldn’t celebrate losses as if they are moral victories. That’s not the mindset that is going to propel you to the highest levels of success. True winners hate losing of any kind. You can’t just console yourself with the “I did my best” mantra. That is a cop out. It’s about going for the W:  Every. Single. Time.

Brad Lea is the founder of LightspeedVT, an interactive learning software, and a veteran marketer and training expert.

This conversation is full of insight (and laughs).

Impact Over Income ft. Navy SEAL J.P. Dinnell, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO190

J.P. Dinnell is a Navy SEAL, business consultant, and Jocko Willink’s partner at Echelon Front. In one of the best podcasts we’ve ever done, he and I talk about his SEAL training, his experience fighting in the battle of Ramadi, and lessons he’s learned in war that very much apply to achieving success in business and real life. This is a special podcast. If you don’t come away amazed by the insight and motivated by the stories, there’s something wrong with you.

How to Increase Your Value Every Day, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO189

The most important thing you can do to achieve success is commit yourself to self-development. How many books have you read?  What have you taught yourself lately?  It is nobody’s responsibility but yours to put good sh*t in your brain. There is no excuse you can make to not take your own improvement seriously.  In this episode, I tell you what has worked for me and what can work for you. 

Legacy: Our Obligation, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO188

Buckle up: this is a pretty wide-ranging conversation about everything that is going on with me right now, the vision I have for transforming the lives of the younger generation, and the plans we have for providing tools for REAL entrepreneurs who want to build a business and make millions of dollars. (I also throw in my thoughts on something essential to entrepreneurial success: the importance of recognizing the lifetime value of a customer.)

Conflict Creates You, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO187

How you view conflict in your life has so much to do with what energy you’re putting out, what progress you’re making, and how far along you’re going to get. What makes movies and books so exciting is the conflict! Yet people have such a terrible view of it. But if you want to be successful, you have to change your perspective about it. In fact, you have to come to believe that conflict is actually what creates the greatness in you.
