We cannot be the same person tomorrow, as we are today. I have to change. For example, I’m trying to be a billionaire. Now, there’s no book on how to become a billionaire and I know the way I am right now is not good enough to be a billionaire, so I need to change. I need to do things differently. We need to change how we think. That’s why I have eight coaches who tell me to do this and do this and make this better. I try to avoid mistakes because mistakes can set you back for years. So if you make the right moves you will checkmate your opponent.

How do we win at the game of business?
The first 91 days are the most important days of everything. They dictate what the rest of your life is going to be because if nothing happens in the first three months, if you don’t have a small victory or a big victory, then you know you don’t get anything different. So the 91 days are very, very important to take action.
You have to know your role in the food chain. You need someone who needs you just as much as you need them. You gotta go and make yourself valuable. The more valuable you are, the more people will take action, the more they will grow.

What is the best thing that worked for you?
There is not one thing that works, it’s doing 25 different things. A lot of us can start doing the wrong thing. You might be focusing on this thing, but it’s not gonna work or it doesn’t make money. Here are the questions you should ask yourself:
- does it make money,
- when will it make money,
- how quickly can I make money, and
- how quickly does it bring me to the next level?
First, you build that competence, which leads to confidence. Confidence leads to success, and success leads to other things. So find your confidence, because you’re not gonna be successful if you wake up in the morning and you’re not sure about yourself.
How to make money?
Sometimes someone says, JT, I don’t have a business. This is not bad, it’s actually sometimes good as opposed to saying I have this business and it’s horrible, I get a lot more of that. The question is, what problem are we solving, what solution are we finding, that’s how you become successful. Solving problems by finding creative solutions, that’s how you make money.
If I had no money, I’d get up every day the earliest possible and I’d get to bed as late as possible because the only thing you bring to the table is your time.
When you have no money it’s all about the money. They say money doesn’t bring happiness, but I don’t buy that for one bit. Money brings freedom, freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want, however you want. Once you have the freedom, then you could do whatever you want. Now that I’ve made money, it excites me more to have people on stage, or helping out a charity and helping people, but you can’t help other people unless you help yourself.
If you’re not a millionaire yet, I want you to act like one because the way you act is what you become. Don’t fake it until you make it, but act as if you made it. Because if you fake it, people will see through it. Nobody knows what you’re worth, except by you how you dress. And I’m not talking about expensive suits or anything like that but how you dress, how you act and how you interact with people.
Find your hero and mentor
Steve Jobs did not change my life, my coaches changed my life. But I have to say, we all need heroes and models and mentors and what I’ve learned from Steve Jobs is that being obsessive/compulsive on the small details makes a big difference.
