Create Your Own Home Field Advantage
There comes a time when we have to evaluate what we are doing to achieve our goals. We have to see if the things we are doing are working for us, and we have to come to terms with where we are in out lives.

When you start analyzing things, you have to be honest with yourself. You have to ask yourself what is and isnít working in our lives. And inevitably, you begin to wonder- is my dream possible? My response is yes, your dreams are possible.

I have had to say to myself on more than one occasion that I have not accomplished my mission. I am behind on my dreams. I have to work harder. I have to move forward. The difference between me and the next guy is the way that I will respond to the challenge. I will face my challenges and defeat them. Will you?
 

Find the Greatness Within
What is going on in your mind? What are you allowing to run free in your mind that is a detriment to you? What kind of thoughts are you allowing to cause fights in your mind?

Life is simple. We choose to complicate it.

We have an inner world and an inner world. Donít let you inner world control the outer world. You have to monitor those negative
 

Detox Your Mind
God gave you everything you needed to survive with your body. But nothing can operate without the mind. It is the most important thing you own. And you need to protect like any other valuable item. You keep money in a bank. You keep jewels in a safe. You have to protect your mind as well.

You have to protect your mind from distractions. You have to protect it from self-doubt.

You are either moving life forward or moving life backwards. Taking care of your mind is the key to life.
 

Donít Bring Last Year into This Year
Itís a new day in America and we need to find a new way.

We have to be on target. Yesterday has no impact on today unless we let it. So we need to let go of the past and focus on our future.

We need to evaluate our lives. Be honest with ourselves. Find our weaknesses. Acknowledge them. Fix them. Keep dreaming. And dream Big.
 

What Do I Do Now?
Its 2017. What now? Where do we start picking up the pieces? How can we turn our excuses into results?

Itís a tough journey, and nothing comes easy. Itís time to grow up, and leave the things that did not work in 2016, in 2016.

Look towards the future. Change the patterns. Use what worked, leave what did not work behind, and always, always move forward.
 

Year End Assessment
I am tired.

I am tired of being a victim. I am tired of being broke. I am tired of not being able to live my live in abundance. I am tired of being on the losing end. I am tired of being obese. I am tired of not eating right and having medical issues.

I am tired of being behind on my dreams. I am tired of being afraid. I am tired of living in poverty. I am tired of depending on other people to make me happy.

I am the only one who can get me out of this situation. There is no one who can wave a magic wand and make my probels go away. Itís time to take an honest evaluation of my life. I need to take a step back and see if what I did in 2015 had an impact in 2016. Then I need to make my plan for 2017.
 

Get to Work on You!
Why are you here?

Why were we sent to this great planet called earth?

What were you sent here to do?

What are your goals? What are your Wants? What are your desires?

Whatever it is that is buring inide you, there is only one thing to do with it. Explore it. Embrace it. Make it your goal to achieve it.

Go all out! Get to work on what matters most. And thatís you.
 

Be the Person You Want to Be
When I set off on my journey to become a better person, all I knew is I wanted to change. I changed the kinds of music I listened to. I stopped watching TV. I stopped listening to others, and I took my life into my own hands. I stopped blaming others and I took responsibility to my own life. I did not know where the journey would take me, I wanted a new direction.

But the problems followed.

The reason these problems kept following me over and over and over again- errors in judgment repeated day after day will result in colossal failure. You canít fight the same battles with the same tactics and expect different results. You have to have courage. You have to fight harder. You have to know what you want and get after it. Donít blame others for your failures. You have to start living like the person you want to be. Focus on the good things and build on that.
 

Fight The Right Battles
Your life is a war zone

Donít let your problems control you. Control your problems.

Attack problems in your life. Kill the blame game. Kill the bad habits. Kill the money problems. Kill the procrastination. Kill the excuses.
 

The Management of Money
No one knows what lies ahead. And we are running out of time

It is time we understand that THIS is the time we need to be successful with our money.

There are universal principles when it comes to understanding the accumulation of money, and how accumulation of carried interest can help you build your wealth.

The principles start from the moment you get paid. And it starts with 10%. Put away 10% of what you earn each and every week. That is how you build wealth.
 

Embrace Your Failures
You donít want to fail on life, but guess what. Itís a part of life.

The universe is all connected. Things happen for a reason. You fail so you can succeed.

You need to learn to deal with your failures. Learn from them and move on. Move forward. What does not kill you makes your stronger. Each failure brings you that much closer to success.

You are unique. You are special. You can make it. Be yourself. Spend your time on things that are beneficial to you. Spend time on self improvement and life will get better for you.
 

Reset Your Mind
I am here to tell you- Itís time to reset your mind. In order to accomplish what we need to accomplish, we need to reprogram our thoughts change out way of thinking, change our way of doing. We need to hit the reset button.

Leave the old things alone. Accept your failures and keep moving forward. Make the most of the four quarters of your life. Stay focused on the mission and the dream and take action NOW.
 

Make Your Own Decisions
Are you making your own decisions or are you doing what others want you to do?

Itís OK to take advice, but if you are not doing what you want, you are taking orders. You are not in charge. You are a follower, not a leader.

You need to know how to make your own decisions. You need to take action.

When will you let your own decision be your own conclusion?
 

The Life You Deserve
Is life giving you what you deserve right now?

Life is not designed to give us what we want. Life is not designed to give us what we need.

Life is designed to give us what we deserve.

If you lay around your house instead of going for a walk, do you deserve to lose weight? If you want to be a doctor, but sit around and watch TV instead of studying, do you deserve to go to med school?

Ask yourself- What does life owe me? Have I done the things to earn me rewards at this point of my life? Are you deserving of what you have?

Are you winning the game of life, and if not, how do we change course?
 

ENCORE SHOW: Building your Daily Success Plan
Are you willing to go through the storm to get to your sunshine? Are you willing to go through the nasty seasons to get to your time? Are you willing to go through the pain, the struggles that come before success? What are you going to do to change your life? What are you willing to do to change your life?

Donít fall in to fear. Make a plan and stuck to it.
 

The Power of Being Broke
Do you understand the power of being broke or being broken?

Being stripped of possessions, being stripped of worth,being stripped of purpose?

Do you understand the power and if you donít, why donít you?

When you are broke physically, when you are broke emotionally, when you are broke spiritually, do you understand the power?

Do you understand how that can drive you to do the things that you should have been doing all along?

All you have is you, and you toughen up and take control of your life.
 

Cash in on Opportunites
How do we cash in on the opportunities in life?

Do we lose out on opportunities because of poor thinking habits? Because of poor attitude, because of poor work ethic?

Our life is not always what we think it is. The things we fear are not frightening at all.

Everything starts with us. Everything happens because of our thinking and our habits.

Believe in yourself. Have faith. Change your habits and cash in on the opportunities.
 

Shake It Down
Its time to shake down the things in the life that are holding you back.

It's time to move your life & career onto the path you were sent her to be on.

Shake down on the stagnation. Shake in the drive that keeps you focused on moving forward.

Shake down those naysayers that say you canít make it.

Itís time for a MAJOR Shakedown in your life, and it needs to start now. Plant the seed for a new life and use the tools that God has given you.
 

Are You a Winner?
How do you describe success? How do others describe your success?

Do they align? If not, why?

Who do you ant to be? What does it take to get there. Why havenít you done it yet.

You have to make that leap. Take responsibility for your actions and your life. be a winner. Set your goals and do what you need to do to get there. Don't be afraid to jump off the cliff.
 

Focus on the Future
Why do we allow issues from the past to affect our present and future? It is a vicious circle; how can you move forward while you are stuck in the past? Let go. Focus on Your Goals. Aim for the target, and do what you need to do to get there.
 

Raise Your Standards
Dou ever get sick and tired of being sick and tired? Sick and tired doing of the same things over and over again? Or not being able to win against a certain team? Or just having the same problems coming up over and over again, and not being able to fix them?

Thing cannot change until you realize that the journey you are on, the success that you want, cannot be accomplished without you raising your level of standards. Do not except the ordinary. Tell yourself you want to make your life better.

What is your standard? What is your drive? What is your commitment? Is your standard not giving your all? Or do you not stop until you win? How do you want others to see you?

When you raise your own standards, you raise the standards of those around you.
 

Think Big, Dream Big, Start Small
Success will continue to elude you unless you learn to dream big. Dream big, but start small. Find a mentor, record your thoughts, read more books. But keep dreaming. Never lose site of your goals. Take the small steps you need to make your dreams come true.
 

What is Making You Happy
When we are exiting life, will you be able to say you did everything humanly possible to find your "why"? Can you say you lived a happy life?

What makes you happy? Are you happy today? can you guarantee you will be happy tomorrow?

But how do you become happy? How can you overcome the negative aspect of society to find your "why" and become truly happy in life?
 

Dealing with Adversity
What do we do when we are down and out. Things are not going our way. Our backs may be against the wall. we may be imprisoned. Or maybe feeling trapped by peer pressure. What do we do in situations like this? What do we do when we have financial issues, or lose our jobs? What do we do?

How we develop through those situations define who we are. In those situations, we need to man up and face our fears.
 

The State of the World from My Perspective
Hydn covers a lot of topics on this show, but he has shyed away from current events to keep from being too controversial. But with everything that has happened over the past 10 days, he feels he needs to say something. He will share his thoughts and feelings on the police shootings in Baton Rouge and Minnesota, as well as the police who were tragically gunned down in Dallas.
 

Changing the Old You to Make the New You
You have been given everything you need to be successful the day you were born. But why are so many people not successful? Because they are running on the wrong operating system. Today we will discuss the process of changing the way you do things to be a better person and achieve more things in this life.
 

The Seed of Life
Embrace the life that has been given to you. Your chosen destiny that was here before you. The ideas, the thoughts, the images and the success that is laid out for you. You have the power to make it real. The path has already been given to you. You just need to follow it.
 

The Keys to a Successful Marriage
We pick up where we left off last week, talking about how to make a marriage work. We will talk about the best way to handle a fight, why all couples should have counselling, and how to approach a divorce if all other options fail.
 

Marriage- Make Yours Work
Marriage gives you the abundance of life. Marriage can give you the vitality to live to 100.

A marriage is not some toy to play with. Marriage is for those that will put everything aside to put their spouse first. But can you be married and be a success? The divorce rate for rich people is very high. Its an epidemic. What can we do to overcome this?
 

Make a Commitment to Change
You were brought here to this planet for one thing- to make the most of your life. And if you don't have the life you want, that's on you. You have to make the commitment to do what needs to be done to get the life you want. Stop making excuses and be your own man. we'll hear clips from the Greatest All Time, who knew this and made the commitment to be the best.

What's Holding You Back
What's holding you back from accomplishing your dreams? Money? Time? Yourself? Those are not actually obstacles. You need to change your mindset to overcome those obstacles to get back on the path to success.
 

Don't Fear Your Success
Fear is a deadly disease. Fear is stopping you from taking baby steps. Fear is stopping you from facing your personal boogie men and making something of your life. Fear is stopping you from trying and failing. You cannot be afraid to fail. There is no success without failure.
 

Understand the WHY
In order to get what you want, you need to know what you want. And even more importantly WHY you want it. Is it for you? Is it for your family? Why do you do what you do? Why don't you have what you want? Why are you not following your dreams?
 

Do Not Be Out Worked
Are a fixed mindset person or you a growth mindset person? Do you know the difference?

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard workóbrains and talent are just the starting point. It all starts with yourself. Be the best you you can be. Know yourself. Love yourself. Stop looking for validation. Make the life you want.

What would you do with your last nine months? You'll find it won't be about money.
 

Improving Your Personal Situation
Donít Let your current circumstance dictate your future outcome.

Are you stuck in a rut, not seams to go my way. Are you always complaining? Is there a voice inside of you telling you that greatness is coming?

What are you going to do to improve your current situation?
