If you want to make progress and create success, sometimes it's smartest to study what NOT to do, so you can be aware of what's been causing you your frustrations. In this series, I am going to be walking you through the mindset of the weak and the average, and what keeps them there. If you hope to separate yourself from the masses, you have to think different. So the challenge for you is this: do you have the courage to find out what these mindsets and attitudes are, and then have the courage to admit you have been weak and need to change?

There are a lot of softies out there..... people afraid to go after a goal, preoccupied with the opinions of others, and too worried about how they appear to take a stand, and be a leader. For some of them there is no hope... but for a lot of them, they need a formula for how to transform themselves into a real killa... and by that I mean someone who knows how to be themselves, establish goals and turn them into reality, and repeat.
