The Idea of Success, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO132

In spite of what The MFCEO has said countless times, people are always clamoring for the “next level content” and “the secret” to success. Andy Frisella says, “no.” There’s no “next level content” that only the elite know. There’s no “secret” available to a chosen few. It’s really basic: “make a list, do the list. win now.” The problem is that people don’t really want to do what is necessary to be successful. They are more in love with the idea of success.

It’s Lonely At The Top, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO129

“What if I get successful and lose all my friends?” That’s a question that The MFCEO gets all the time. “Listen,” says Andy Frisella. “As you move up the ladder of accomplishment, your peer group will change.” Why? Because you will change. You will become a better, more badass person; and better, more badass people will be attracted to you and your life. It doesn’t mean certain members of your old peer group are bad people. It just means that you’ve become very different people with different hopes, dream, and goals–and moving apart is natural. You better accept it. The alternative is keeping your friends–and staying average and mediocre.

Haters Vs. Criticism, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO127

It’s great if you are out there trying to build a business and life of value. But too many people out there are complaining that they have “haters.” According to The MFCEO Andy Frisella, very few people have accomplished anything significant enough to have haters. The haters are imaginary; they exist in the minds of people who want to create excuses for their lack of progress. In reality, you might be on the receiving end of legitimate criticism. If that’s the case, don’t call it “hate.” Accept it humbly. Learn from it. And use it to truly accomplish great things.

Toot Toot, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO122

This is a 2-for-1 Thursday Thunder! First: are you an entrepreneur who likes to take “the shotgun approach?” Do you come out with a product, release it to the public, it goes “okay” but not good, so you just move on to another product–or even another company? According to Andy Frisella, most people don’t understand that success takes time and tenacity. They don’t have the aggressive patience necessary to succeed. Without it, they will bounce from one thing to the next and never enjoy the amazing results that are bound to come. Second: When it comes to personal branding, are you comfortable tooting your own horn? You need to be.  If you don’t, nobody else will do it for you.
