This short educational video explains how my 12 minute a day technique is customized to your unique one-of-a-kind life.
When I turned 50 years old, I wasn’t as successful as I thought I should be. I had two goals in my life. To make enough money so I’d never have to work, and to find the woman of my dreams. At 50, I was falling short on both, after decades of chances. By 50, after decades of chances, I’d been an entrepreneur for 20 years. In my 30s and 40s I got in a variety of business: real estate development, banking, restaurants, publishing and the automotive industry. I was blessed to typically make about $250,000 a year, but never close to a million dollars a year. And I could do the math. If I didn’t start making over one million dollars a year, I’d never have enough money to not have to work. So what was the problem? I see it now. I was doing life like everyone else. Working really hard (60 hours week) but ultimately leaving my success to fate. I was operating on the misguided assumption that if I kept working really hard, inevitably I would have that “breakthrough”, and begin making over one million dollars a year.
When I look back on that now, I see how naïve that was. What I really needed was to substantially up my game, but I didn’t know how.
Are you working really hard making six figures a year but, in the end, leaving your success to fate – just like I was?
When I turned 51, I discovered a new niche in the financial services industry. As I launched into this new business, somehow I had the presence of mind to realize that if I kept doing the same thing I’d had always been doing, I was going to get the same results no matter what industry I was in. Has that ever occurred to you? Well, that spurred me to think about Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, which I had read a couple years previously. The central concept of that book is “what you envision in detail on a daily basis is what shows up in your life.” Only one problem: There wasn’t a practical way to apply the wisdom of that book to everyday life.
So as I launched my new business, I created a practical way to do just that. I noticed something amazing right away. Within 3 weeks, I could do things I couldn’t do before. I also saw things I’d never seen before. I experienced self-control and focus to a level I’d never experienced before. And as I refined my technique, I became aware of the strong science behind it.
Then I discovered something else: a way to substantially increase my personal growth on a week in and week out basis. Best of all, it was a way that took no additional time. It was a highly efficient method to consistently learn from experts in a variety of fields. From marketing and sales to leadership, from organization and efficiency to employee empowerment. Also topics on health. On a 1 to 10 scale, my personal growth went from being a “3” to a “10”. Where would you fall on this scale? If you’re like most people, you’re a “3” just like I was.
As I reflected on all this, I realized that this combination of having exceptional control over myself and a relentless daily focus on what moved the needle in my business, coupled with a much higher level of consistent personal growth, had upped my game big time. What tipped me off to that?
I became fascinated with how a person could take 2 key scientific discoveries and apply them to his or her life and materially impact their success and achievements in career, health and marriage, all at the same time. And that’s my passion today. To show people, just like you, who are willing to invest in themselves and be open and objective about themselves, specifically what it takes to “up” your own game, so you can break the million dollar a year threshold.

I first transform your business, then I transform you. Here’s how that’s accomplished.
I make your business more profitable, so you can evolve to not having to work. I’m not your typical consultant. My unique skill set as an entrepreneur, with a track record of netting well into seven figures a year, is seeing untapped opportunities in sales, marketing and employee management. That’s what caused me to evolve from being a CPA to an entrepreneur in the first place.
So I start by thoroughly analyzing your business. I then create a foundation of accountability, which most businesses lack. This makes your business more profitable as well as run better, with less stress on you. Then I teach you the 10 entrepreneurial lessons critical to success, based on my 30+ years of experience as an entrepreneur.
I currently teach these lessons at the University of Texas at Austin as a faculty member at the McCombs School of Business. McCombs is rated one of the top business schools in the nation, right up there with Harvard and Stanford. I teach you how to apply those lessons in a practical way to YOUR unique business.
Then I transform you. I accomplish that through my 12-minute-a-day scientifically proven technique, which is recognized as the “Top practical application in the world” of the legendary book Think and Grow Rich.
Working together, we achieve the following:
a) Double your control of yourself.
b) Triple your personal growth.
c) Focus you daily only on the 2-3 things that moves the needle in your business.
It’s achieved through your daily visualization, which takes 12 minutes a day to read and is uniquely customized to your one-of-a-kind life.
Two key things to appreciate. First, your life is like no one else’s life. It’s totally unique. That’s why the visualization we create is the succinct articulation of your one-of-a-kind life. The person you want to be, where you want to go, and specifically how you’re going to get there. You will literally be able to hold this succinct articulation of your life in one hand. Picture that. You can imagine the level of control you will feel over your life.
Secondly, we create your visualization FOR YOU. It’s based on your input combined with my third-party perspective and expertise in the success and human achievement field as well as my background of being a successful entrepreneur.
To the surprise of many, there actually is a science to the process of success and achievement. The discoveries of the last 20 years have been startling, and these discoveries are incorporated into your Think It Be It visualization.
The results are dramatically altered achievement outcomes in career, health, and relationships …as you can see from our many testimonials.
Further, this 12 minute a day technique impacts your happiness. It heals psychological wounds and eliminates limiting beliefs. More on that in the “Nuts and Bolts” section as you read further.
What the science of success and human achievement has discovered over the last 20 years is startling. The differentiator between the mega-successful and the moderately successful is control of self and focus.
In clinical studies of people that have had exceptional achievement, the primary thing they exhibited was an immense clarity and focus that most people don’t have. They see exactly what they want to achieve and the step-by-step plan for doing so. They also understand that only 2-3 things actually move the needle in their lives. Then, most importantly, they feed that vision to themselves on a daily basis.
That overrides the default operating system that most people operate with which is based on daily survival. And that changes everything! Mega-achievers operate on an ongoing basis from a perspective of productivity, creativity, and happiness.
This is in stark contrast to the default operating system that you’re using currently that’s based on survival. That system causes you to have 90% of your thoughts fear-based. It also causes you to be reactive rather than proactive. You can easily appreciate the negative impact of those two things on your own success and achievement.
That in a nutshell explains the conclusions reached by the field of success and human achievement over the last 20 years. We should all have great admiration for the many researchers who have discovered this. They’ve radically changed the understanding of how success and achievement occurs from what it was when we were growing up.
They should get all the credit. But what I’ve created in Think It Be It is simply the daily “delivery system” to apply, in a practical way, the “science of success” discovered over the past 20 years.
Keep in mind, I’m a CPA by background and training. I’m analytical. And I’m fascinated by the process of success and achievement as well as the science behind it. And while there’s nothing wrong with the metaphysical approach to success using techniques such as meditation and mindfulness, that’s NOT what Think It Be It is.
More specifically, a different way of creating achievement in your life …from how most people do it. Think It Be It is NOT for most people. Rather, it’s for people who have two distinct characteristics. First, they see that the normal way of creating success and achievement simply doesn’t work, at least not for high achievers. They also see the logic of why the default operating system, geared towards daily survival, doesn’t work.
Secondly, people that do Think it Be it have the guiding principle in their life to “BE” their best and always “DO” their best. More success and achievement in career, health and marriage is a necessity for you. For most other people, it’s only a preference. For you, getting the most out of your precious life is part of your identity, it’s who you are.
Most people work hard and have a general view of the person they want to be, what they want to accomplish in life, and how. As to their focus, it’s scattered – because they have a lot going on. That, coupled with using the default operating system, gets you an ordinary life. As proof of that, we have the 99%.
You’re in that category if you’re annual income is less than $465,000 a year, you have an “average” significant other relationship (a “6” on a 1-10 scale), and you are challenged in your ability to control what you eat and to exercise consistently. And for most people, that average, “99% life” is just fine. But it’s NOT fine for high achievers.
The Think It Be It approach to thinking and creating achievement is based on the science of achievement noted above. It’s a methodology that does two things. First, it focuses you every day on the 2-3 things that actually move the needle in your business. And it implements the top goalsetting system in the world in your life …for you.
Secondly, it establishes immense clarity into your life. Clarity of exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. It overrides the default operating system and overlays an operating system that gears you to productivity, creativity and happiness. Further, as noted previously, it’s an operating system that is uniquely tailored and customized to your one-of-a-kind life.
Today, you’re already successful. But you want to be “even more” successful. And the reason you’re not is simple. You’re doing life like everyone else. You’re using, every single day, the “default” operating system to run your life. You’re not proactively influencing the part of your brain that controls your everyday thoughts and ongoing actions. The 99% doesn’t proactively influence their everyday thoughts and actions.
But watch what happens when you do. It literally doubles your control of yourself, triples your personal growth and focuses you every day on the two or three things that move the needle in your business. Can you see how achievement in each area of your life would be substantially increased? And interestingly, all three areas are impacted at the same time.
The process starts by first transforming your business. You answer a detailed questionnaire about your life and your business. As part of the questionnaire, I learn key metrics about your business over the past few years. Then once you complete the questionnaire, it’s a back-and-forth conversation with me, John Mitchell.
We talked through where you are in your entrepreneurial business, where you want to go, how you see getting there, and exactly what are the two or three things that move the needle in your business.
Based my 30+ years of experience as an entrepreneur, I often see flaws in your plan. That’s normal. We then talk through it all and come up with a detailed and specific plan that is a combination of your intimate knowledge of your own business coupled with my third-party perspective and experience.
The end result is a refined vision of your company that establishes a foundation of accountability throughout your company. Accountability in the areas of sales, marketing, and employee performance.
Also a practical way to get there from where you are today with a realistic timeframe. Let me emphasize “practical.” That’s a value of 30+ years of experience. I know what’s practical and I know what isn’t.
This moves your company fundamentally from an entitlement culture to an empowerment culture. And while it doesn’t happen overnight, it happens quicker than you might think. We also plan your company’s future growth, and the practical step-by-step way to get there, with appropriate metrics along the way. All that creates a foundation of prosperity for your company for many years in the future.
Once we establish that detailed vision for your business, I then step away and create a succinct articulation of that plan that you will read every day in your daily visualization.
It will include your business plan, your unique strategy for success, the culture you’re creating, how your unique talent is applied to the business, and the two or three specific things that move the needle in your business. Once I’ve done that, then we go through a similar analysis process with regards to your health and your significant other relationship.
That’s followed by implementing the top goalsetting system in the world into your daily visualization. We will define three goals for the current quarter. One or two goals will be on your business. We’ll first define exactly what each goal is. Then the “WHY” behind each goal – which directly affects your motivation. Then the three or four key behaviors associated with each goal. And finally, a timeframe and measurement.
And every Sunday morning, you will track your performance on those key behaviors. You’ve never done goalsetting like this, and it’s life-changing.
The science is the easiest part of the process. The hard part is creating the succinct articulation of your life and your business. But once the customized, “unique to your life” visualization is created for you, the science is applied to your life.
That application takes 12 minutes a day and that’s your responsibility. And here’s the fundamental thing you need to appreciate. You must apply the science every single day.
That’s accomplished by reading your customized visualization first thing every day. You read it before you get out of bed. This is important because this is when your brain waves are closest to the alpha state, which is a measure of your brain waves per second.
This is scientifically proven to be when you’re most creative and when your mind can most easily be influenced. Accordingly, you want to do this programming before your mind gets distracted with other things and moves away from the desired alpha state.
a) Doubling your control over yourself.
Here’s how the mind works. The conscious mind sets the intention and is influenced by logic. But here’s what most people don’t know. The conscious mind does NOT control your everyday thoughts and actions, as most people assume. Rather, your everyday thoughts and actions are controlled exclusively by the subconscious mind. Further, the subconscious mind is influenced solely by repetition.
As an example of this, let’s take a person that wants to lose weight. The intention to lose weight is set by the conscious mind. But the actions of consistently exercising and eating right are controlled by the subconscious mind. The reason most people struggle to lose weight is not for lack of intention. It’s for lack of influencing the part of their brain that controls their ongoing thoughts and actions.
And that’s the reason why humans have less than 20% control over themselves. They are not influencing the part of their brain that controls their thoughts and actions – which, as you can no doubt appreciate, is the basis of one’s success and achievement in life.
This is based on extensive studies by the National Institute of Health as well as the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois.
If you wonder if that’s really true, here’s something to appreciate …and it’s easy to understand. Control over your intentions, which you do have 100% control over, is NOT the same as control over yourself, your thoughts and actions. Understanding the difference is significant because your thoughts and actions are what determine your success and achievement in life, as well as your happiness.
Your level of control over yourself diminishes radically as the time increases between when your intention is set …and when the actions take place.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you want to control raising your hand. You have the intention and you raise your hand immediately. You have 100% control. But the more time that lapses between the intention and the action, the less control you have.
Think about that for a moment, with regards to our example of losing weight. The actions of eating healthy and exercising are distanced from the intention.
The way you rectify that lack of control is by influencing daily the part of your brain that controls your thoughts and actions – your subconscious mind. And the only way you can influence that part of your brain is through repetition. It doesn’t respond to logic at all. Only repetition, and that’s why it must be done daily.
But here’s the good news. Once you do, after approximately 21 days, the programming shows up in your ongoing thoughts and actions automatically, without conscious thought. That’s the beauty of this.
So that’s the first scientific principle we apply to your life through your daily visualization. It explains why you’re able to double your control over yourself and focus every day on the 2-3 things that move the needle in your business. It’s easy to see how that would be impactful on your annual income, in controlling your health and appearance, as well as improving your significant other relationship.
The subconscious mind is a more primitive part of the brain than the conscious mind. That’s reflected in the fact that it doesn’t respond to logic, only repetition. Don’t you find it interesting that your “ongoing” thoughts and actions are controlled by a part of the brain that doesn’t respond to logic? You’re about to learn the benefit that comes from that.
The subconscious mind also doesn’t know the difference between what is real and imagined. That’s particularly interesting because it gives us a huge opportunity. To heal psychological wounds that may be decades old. Also to eliminate limiting beliefs.
If logic were in charge, that wouldn’t be the case. Logic would say that what you’ve been in the past will logically continue in the future. But by by using repetition, you can heal those wounds and limiting beliefs. And that healing begins to show up automatically in your thoughts and actions after 21 days.
b) Your reticular activating system. (The second scientific discovery applied to your life)
It’s your filter for your brain. It determines what gets in, and what doesn’t. By giving yourself, at the start of each day, a crystal clear vision of exactly who you want to be, what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your goals, that gives your reticular activating system amazing clarity. And it brings into your consciousness things that are NOT coming into your consciousness today, when there isn’t such clarity. The difference is substantial and very noticeable. As you can appreciate, it has a big impact on your success and achievement in each area of your life.
Once you start reading your visualization first thing every morning, the science then takes over. And that’s the life you create. But it only happens after reading your daily visualization for a minimum of 21 days. That’s because the subconscious mind, as you already know, is only influenced by repetition.
Before 21 days, your subconscious mind assumes that this daily repetition is going to go away. So it ignores it. But after approximately 21 days, it finally begins to accept that the programming isn’t going way. And the programming begins to shows up automatically in your thoughts and actions. Amazingly simple how it works.
One final note. Once you start reading your daily visualization and we’ve got that have it in place, then I circle back around and teach you in more detail the 10 lessons of being a successful entrepreneur that you don’t learn in school.
I’ve incorporated them into your visualization and we’ve talked about them as we were creating your visualization. But after you start the process of reading your visualization each day and we’ve got that seeded in, then we have a more detailed discussion of those 10 lessons so that you really understand them for applying them in your company as it evolves in the future.
1) Read your visualization first thing every day. It takes 12 minutes to apply the science each day to your life.
2) Listen to the “learning from experts” audio link provided every Monday.
We’re going to send you one – 1 ½ hours of the “best of the best” learning from experts in critical areas for an entrepreneur. You get an email every Monday morning. Your commitment is simply to listen to the links by the end of the week, when you’re doing something else – so it takes no additional time to do. Either driving to or from work or exercising. This commitment is confirmed in your daily visualization – therefore it reinforces doing it.
3) Record performance on your key behaviors every Sunday morning.
Watch what happens when you track your key behaviors weekly. You actually do the key behaviors. And that causes you to attain your goals.
4) Set aside to think two times a week.
Remember, you’re your company’s most valuable asset. This systemizes the process of stimulating your creativity two times a week. It also gives you “perspective” about your life two times a week, so you are not continually overwhelmed by the day to day.
We provide the “Thinking Tablet” and the instructions on how to do this each week. Takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes two times a week. This weekly habit is reinforced in your daily visualization as well.
5) Change your visualization
Regarding the front page of your visualization, it reflects the “IDEAL” you. It will change occasionally throughout the quarter as you see new insights into your life.
For an entrepreneur, you’ll find this interesting. Typically your vision for your business at any given point of time is two thirds accurate and one third flawed. When you’re reading your visualization every day, your business plan, your strategy for success, the two or three things that move the needle, your vision for your business gets pulled forward much more rapidly than before you were reading a daily visualization. It happens because it engages your subconscious mind 24/7.
That causes you to see the opportunities quicker and the flaws quicker. Probably 20 times quicker. And as you see them, you make the appropriate changes on your daily visualization.
On the back page of your visualization are the improvements you want to make in yourself and your top three goals for the quarter. So at the start of each new quarter, you’re going to revise the back page of your visualization substantially. Establish three new goals and change the improvements you want to see in your life …as prior improvements are accomplished. We’re here to help you if you need the help.
The above gives you a detailed understanding of the Think It Be It program. It shows you why it works, the science behind it, the process required to implement it into your life, and what’s required of you.
It shows you in detail the 10 components of the Think It Be It system.

It’s for you, the entrepreneur, who wants an unprecedented level of control over your life. Who seriously wants to up your game by applying the “science” of achievement. So you can begin making over $1 million a year. Our clarity of purpose is our strength. Clearly this is for high achievers.
I need you to do one thing. Step back and look at your life. Gain a “big picture” perspective based on the actual results you’ve been seeing in your life over the last few years.
Estimate your average annual income for the past three years. What’s that number? How about your ability to control your health and appearance …as evidenced by your ability to exercise consistently and control what you eat. How’s that going? And if you had to rate your significant other relationship on a scale of 1 to 10 over the last couple of years, how would you rate it?
Is the way you achieve things in life working? It either is …or it isn’t.
They work hard. They have a general view of the person they want to be, what they want to accomplish, as well as the general understanding of how they’re going to accomplish their goals. As to their focus, it’s scattered – because they have a lot going on. They also do life using the “default” operating system, which gears a person toward daily survival, rather than prosperity.
That approach gets you an ordinary life. As proof of that, we have the 99% …which is anyone with an annual income less than $465,000 a year, and “average” significant other relationship (a “6” on a 1-10 scale), and anyone who struggles to eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis. And that ordinary life is truly okay for most.
Rather, it’s for YOU, only if:
Is that YOU?
If you want an extraordinary life, let me open your mind to another approach. A different way of thinking. A different way of creating achievement in your life …based on the proven science of achievement. It doubles your control of yourself, triples your ongoing personal growth, and focuses you every day on what moves the needle in your business.
Further, it also impacts your happiness – by creating order in your mind, by healing psychological wounds that may be decades-old, and by eliminating limiting beliefs.
All this is achieved using a 21st-century operating system that gears you each and every day to productivity, creativity, and happiness. It’s an operating system that is uniquely tailored and customized to your one-of-a-kind life. Let me say that again because this is significant. It’s customized to your unique life, and that’s done for you.
This is the alternative to the default operating system you are using now. That system gears you to survival and therefore causes 90% of your thoughts to be fear-based. It also causes you to be “reactive” rather than proactive. That’s a fundamental problem when your goal in life is not daily survival but rather ongoing productivity, creativity and happiness.
This 12 minute a day technique and methodology I’m introducing you to changes how you think about (and approach) achievement in your life. It’s based first on establishing immense clarity. Clarity of exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals.
Secondly, it focuses you every day on the 2-3 things that move the needle in your business. Further, this technique implements the top goalsetting system in the world into your life …for you. You’ll also learn the science behind why those things are so effective in upping your success and achievement in career, health, and relationships.
We create a visualization that is customized to your unique, one-of-a-kind life for you. It compresses your life onto one sheet of paper, front and back. It’s created from our mutual collaboration. It’s the product of your input coupled with my third-party perspective. I bring to the table 30+ years of experience as a successful entrepreneur, who has a track record of netting multiple 7 figures a year.
Then we apply the science to your life. It takes 12 minutes a day to make that precise, focused vision show up every day, automatically, without thinking. That’s the science kicking in. It overrides the “survival” operating system you are using now. But you have to apply the science every single day.
Our 12 minute day technique is amazingly simple, and that may be Think It Be It’s greatest attribute. Simplicity! It gives you a level of control over your life that you’ve never experienced before. In a moment, you’ll learn why that’s the case.
Think it Be it is for you if …you’re an entrepreneur who has the presence of mind to be able to step back from your day-to-day life and see that the normal way of creating success and achievement simply doesn’t work, at least not for the level of success and achievement you want. If you’re doing life like everyone else, you’re not going to make over $1 million a year. It’s just that simple!
Let me challenge you. Step back right now and decide. Is the way you’re creating success in your life working? Not only in career, but also regarding controlling your health and appearance, and having a great relationship with your significant other?
Please answer that question NOT by comparing yourself to others, but rather according to your own standards and expectations. That’s the only thing that ultimately matters!
And make the evaluation not with rose-colored glasses on, but rather by examining the unvarnished results you’re actually seeing …relative to the life you want.
With that as a preface, now answer the question. Is the way you’re creating success and achievement in your life working? YES or NO? Please answer that before you read any further.
If the way you’re creating success is NOT acceptable to you, Think it be it gives you THE ALTERNATIVE. Not a metaphysical approach, but rather a scientifically proven methodology for upping your achievement in career, health and significant other relationship. Interestingly, it impacts all three at the same time. That’s significant.
And let me challenge you one final time. If your standard in life is to be your best and do your best, and that’s your identity, then don’t you have a responsibility to up your game …when you find the rare opportunity to do so? Consider this.
Most ideas for upping your game are just general advice. This opportunity is tangible. In fact, picture this. It’s so tangible, you literally hold the succinct articulation of your life in your hand… each morning.
Because our 12-minute-a-day technique is so tangible and finite in terms of the time required to do it, that’s what makes it, in turn, so rare. Don’t you therefore have the responsibility to grab it, so that you attain the most important thing in life – control over your life. It allows you to proactively create the life you want and live a life of intention and clarity.
If that resonates with you, Think It Be It is for you.
It explains the nuts and bolts of why the Think It Be It 12 minute a day technique works. It also explains exactly how we implement our methodology into your unique life and business.
Over the last 10 years there has been an intense interest in the scientific community regarding success and achievement. Not long ago Time Magazine did a cover story on the topic. The story revealed that there actually is a science, and a simple process, to creating success in one’s life. It’s not about luck or even just about hard work.
Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the science that could propel them to the next level. But once you learn the science, from this point forward, your life will forever be changed…as you break through to a higher level of success and achievement in career, health, and relationships. This science is “must know” stuff for you, the high achieving entrepreneur intent on going to the next level-making over $1 million a year.

For an entrepreneur to prosper today, you have to be intellectually growing on a week in and week out basis. Learning from true experts in sales, marketing, leadership, time efficiency, organization, health, and relationships. This is what 100% of the mega achievers do.
So every Monday morning we email you audio or video links to great content, and you listen to it during the upcoming week. It’s the “best of the best” from a variety of sources, including TED talks. We take the guesswork out of what to listen to by providing you with 1-2 hours of powerful content every week.
We also customize our personal growth system to fit your unique life. So you can listen to the content on your phone in a way that fits your schedule and routine. So you can listen to it while you are doing something else, such as when you are working out or driving to or from work.
The benefit of this approach is it allows you to consistently grow each week with no additional time out of your busy schedule. It puts your personal growth on autopilot each week.
A candid comment from John Mitchell about growing…
If the content is not provided to you each week by a 3rd party, you simply will NOT grow as much as you should. I say that with 100% certainty. As proof of that, look at your current personal growth plan now.
The problem is not your intention to grow. The problem is 3 things: Carving out the time, deciding exactly what to read or listen to, and establishing a weekly routine that is simple and is tailored to your unique life. Those are exactly the things that the Think it Be it personal growth program provides you.
Two other significant benefits. First, it’s not personal growth through reading. It’s audio so you can listen to it while you are doing something else. Secondly, it’s not hours of content. It’s 1-2 hours of the “best of the best” content. Trust me—that’s all you need… if it’s great content every week and you listen to it every week by having a routine. The beauty of our program is its simplicity!
Entrepreneurs from any industry with any background will benefit from Think It Be It. This is the case because the program doubles your control over yourself and makes you laser focused daily on the three things that move the needle in your business.
As you can appreciate, that inevitably boosts your success and achievement in career, health, and relationships. Further, it impacts all three areas at the same time.
You’ll get 10 things, when Think it Be it is applied to your unique life:
Areas of your business improved are sales, marketing, and employee management. Untapped opportunities are brought to your attention and acted on. I also create a foundation of accountability in your company. The ultimate benefit to you is 2 things. First, total financial freedom in your life by increasing your company’s profitability to seven figures a year . . . so you create a nest egg where you ultimately don’t have to work. Secondly, less stress on you on a daily basis. This happens from improving the accountability throughout your company and how it runs on a daily basis.
Here’s why I’m not your typical consultant.
In fact, that unique skill set caused me to become an entrepreneur after starting out as a CPA. My analysis of your business will change how you look at it as well as change how you build your business in the future. It will create “THE ACCOUNTABILITY FOUNDATION” for your business that inevitably breeds success and prosperity for many years to come.
Trust me on this. Once you get the proper foundation established in your business, life for you the entrepreneur gets way easier and significantly more lucrative. So I establish that foundation in your company for you.
So think about that relative to your own age. You don’t know what you don’t know! In retrospect, as I look back on my own 30s and 40s, I now vividly see that. And it’s a valuable lesson for you.
Someone with more experience and with an outside perspective may be available to open your eyes to practical ideas that can radically change your business. Especially if the outside party’s “unique talent” is seeing those untapped opportunities and practical solutions to problems . . . as is the case with me. I teach you what you don’t know.
So often with consultants, they have solutions but they’re not practical. And that’s the difference of getting your business analyzed by a fellow entrepreneur who’s been where you want to go. 30 years experience taught me what’s practical and what isn’t. I’m all about making things happen. And once you get to know me, this will come through very quickly. I can apply a “higher level of thinking” to your unique business.
Once I analyze your business and define the action steps needed to set the proper foundation for your company, I then focus on YOU. I implement into your life the 12-minute-a-day technique that doubles your control over yourself, triples your ongoing personal growth, and focuses you every day on what moves the needle in your unique business.
My thorough analysis of your business, coupled with significantly upping your own game, has a powerful effect on your life. You’re transformed and your business is transformed. Both you and your business are then operating at an even higher level . . . which creates the foundation for you making seven figures a year.
This is achieved through a 12-minute-a-day visualization technique that is customized to your unique life. It has compelling science behind it as explained in a Time Magazine cover story. Secondly, it affects what comes into your consciousness on an ongoing basis.
The net effect is you can do things you can’t do today and you see things you don’t see today. You’re focused solely on what moves the needle in your business. Everything else falls by the wayside. The bottom line is you simply operate at an even higher level each and every day.
Further, it not only materially impacts your annual income, but it also impacts your significant other relationship as well as your health . . regarding your discipline in what you eat and exercise.
We create a detailed vision of exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. We then compress your life on to one sheet of paper front and back. On the front page is the “IDEAL” you in the five key areas of your life:
On the back are the improvements you want in the various areas of your life. Additionally your top three goals for the quarter are articulated. Included is the WHY behind each goal ( affects motivation) and the key behaviors associated with each goal. Once your visualization is completed, you simply read it first thing every morning before you get out of bed. This takes 12 minutes a day. It doubles your control over yourself, changes what comes into your consciousness on a daily basis, and focuses you every day on what moves the needle in your career. It also affirms your commitment to ongoing personal growth, provided each week by Think it Be it.
The business you envision… in detail every day… will be the business you actually create! included on the front page of your daily visualization in the career section we will succinctly articulate seven things.
All of this information is captured on the front page of your visualization.
On the back page we will list your top three goals for the quarter, one or two of which will pertain to your business. Included will be the WHY behind each goal, which directly affects your motivation. You also list the key behaviors associated with each goal.
Your performance on those key behaviors will be tracked every Sunday morning on the bottom of your visualization so you can gauge your progress.
I can’t stress enough how impactful this is. To see your performance on those key behaviors stacked week by week, strongly reinforces doing the key behaviors. And when you do the key behaviors this inevitably causes you to attain your goals. This is the goal setting system developed by the top expert in the world on goal setting, and it’s built right into your daily visualization.
By simply reading your visualization first thing every single morning, 2 things happen. First, you act on your business vision because it’s SO top of mind, and because it creates such immense clarity and focus. Secondly, your business vision itself evolves, because science now proves that by stimulating your subconscious mind every morning with a minimum of 21 days repetition, it then works on your vision 24/7. This causes your vision for your business to continually become more refined, detailed and nuanced.
Let me say that again because for an entrepreneur, this is BIG, and I really want you to fully appreciate this. When you read your vision for your business every single day, your succinct business plan, your unique strategy for success and exactly how you’re going to achieve your business goals, it automatically causes your vision to get more refined. You continually gain enhanced clarity as to how you’re going to evolve your business to make it more successful. You feel this invisible force…a momentum, pulling you and your business vision forward, by a factor many times over what it is now when you are not reading a daily visualization. You see the flaws and the opportunities more quickly and make the refinements more rapidly. Probably 10 to 20 times more quickly than you do today. How significant is that?
Again, it causes your business vision to continually get more refined, detailed and nuanced. And that’s hugely important because once you personally see this process start to work after 21 days, you quickly come to realize that your vision of your business IS your most valuable asset. The business you envision in detail is the business you actually create.
The end result? You have a scientific methodology for making you vision for your business evolve as well as a scientific methodology for making that vision turn into reality.
On the bottom of your visualization…..you can gauge your progress.
This is done by recording, every Sunday morning, your performance on the key behaviors for the prior week.
I can’t stress enough how impactful this is. By seeing your performance stacked week by week, it strongly reinforces doing the key behaviors. And that, in turn, inevitably causes you to attain your goals.
This is the goal setting system designed by the top expert in the world on goal setting, and it’s built right into your own daily visualization.
Some people prefer to “listen” to their daily visualization each morning rather than read it. This can be accomplished through your phone. Once your visualization is on your phone, just put your head on the pillow and lay back, close your eyes and listen to your daily visualization.
Some high achievers alternate between reading their visualization and listening to it. One month they’re reading it, next month they’re listening to it. We help you figure out what’s best for your unique life and your preferences.
On the front page, you will change your visualization maybe slightly once a month, as you see yourself evolve and grow. On the back page, your visualization is geared to change materially at the start of each calendar quarter, as improvements to yourself are accomplished and new goals for the current quarter are established.
You simply read (or listen to) your visualization first thing each day. Takes approximately 12 minutes a day.
John Mitchell personally creates your visualization based on your input from an extensive questionnaire.
Things included in your visualization – regarding your business:
As part of your daily visualization, we define your top three goals for the quarter. Typically one or two of those goals will pertain to your business, the other goal(s) pertaining to your health or significant other relationship.
Once each goal is clearly defined, then we articulate the “WHY” behind each goal. This is significant because it directly affects your motivation.
Then we define the key behaviors associated with each goal. Typically each goal will have 3 key behaviors associated with them …and we track those key behaviors weekly, every Sunday morning.
I can’t stress enough how impactful this is. To see your performance on those key behaviors stacked week by week, strongly reinforces doing the key behaviors. And when you do the key behaviors that inevitably causes you to attain your goals. This is the goal setting system developed by the top expert in the world on goal setting, and it’s built right into your daily visualization.
At the end of each calendar quarter, you are prompted to do a goal evaluation and assessment on each of your three primary goals. We make goal achievement simple and highly effective for you. Your sense of ongoing accomplishment soars because you now have a proven long-term methodology for achieving your goals.
You’ve never done goalsetting like this in your life. It’s highly effective, you only get one shot at life. It’s a proven methodology for getting the thing sin life that are most important to you.
And maybe best of all, your learning is structured to your unique life . . . so it takes NO ADDITIONAL TIME out of your day. The content is provided every Monday morning via an email to you. You’re getting 1 to 1.5 hours of “expert content” every week in the areas of sales, marketing, leadership of employees, health and relationships. Your commitment to yourself is to listen to it by the end of the week.
You can listen to the audio links from your phone when you’re driving to and from work or when exercising each day. That’s why it takes no additional time out of your day. This really does triple your ongoing personal growth.
If you’re not growing consistently, you are a “closed loop.” You think what you’ve always thought. But when you put your personal growth on autopilot and it happens consistently each and every week, you become an “open” loop. You’re a learning machine! Learning from the brilliance of others, who are true experts in their field.
It’s truly life-changing, and I say this from personal experience. It eliminates the stress of having to be an expert yourself in multiple areas. This is something fundamental and profound to appreciate. Learn more about this in the personal growth section of our website.
Your company becomes more profitable and less stressful on you by learning these lessons which I personally teach you. It will change how you look at your company and will change the foundation of your company so it simply runs better and is more profitable.
It takes a long time to learn the lessons an entrepreneur must learn in order to create sustaining success in your business. Many are learned late in life, in one’s 50s. Additionally, you don’t know what you don’t know. I, John Mitchell, know this from personal experience. As an entrepreneur in my 30s, and 40s, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I made low six figures a year. I had to up his own game to then make mid seven figures a year. I share the lessons I learned over 30 years with you. They are as follows:
These lessons are taught to you as well as incorporated in your daily visualization. They will show up in the articulation of your business plan, your unique strategy for success, the three things that move the needle in your business, as well as in your business goals and the key behaviors associated with those goals.
You know your business better than anyone. By using our simple system, your great ideas are brought to the surface weekly. And as part of the system, we show you how to ensure that you consistently act on those great ideas that are coming to you every week. Remember, you are your company’s greatest asset. We show you how to play into that for maximum benefit.
By doing a daily visualization coupled with the heightened personal growth of the Think it Be it program, you’re inputting a lot of information into your brain. But your brain needs a way to output information as well, after it’s had time to process what you’re inputting as well as process the events of the week. Accordingly, we establish the habit to simply “THINK” two times a week . . . and provide a leather bound THINKING TABLET that is customized to your life so your creative thinking is targeted in the correct areas.
Each thinking session lasts 15 – 30 minutes, during which you let flow onto a blank sheet of paper whatever thoughts come to your head. At the end of each thinking session you are trained to identify the takeaways and action steps, and they are then transferred to your weekly schedule.
This “two times a week” habit stimulates your ongoing creativity because it applies science to your life by engaging your subconscious mind on a consistent basis. The purpose is to generate creativity that you can productively act upon in your life.
You simply get more things done through an improved daily and weekly organizational system. It focuses you every day on the 3 things that MOVE THE NEEDLE in your business. It’s achieved through a daily and weekly to-do system that is customized to your unique life.
In 30+ years of being an entrepreneur, I’ve learned that traditional organizational systems don’t work for three reasons. First, too complicated. Secondly, they are not customized to your unique one-of-a-kind business and life. Third, they don’t focus you on what’s most important each day and week. Our simple system overcomes those problems.
This is achieved through 2 – 3 short and concise emails every week. Your time is precious and we respect that. That’s why our weekly emails are short and to the point and you get a great education quickly . . . as you experience firsthand the Think it Be it system.
By using the Think it Be it app, you can access Think It Be It on your phone or portable device. It includes:
a) Your customized visualization with the option to read or listen to it.
b) Reminders to read your daily visualization, listen to your weekly personal growth, and use your Thinking Tablet 2 times a week.
c) Quick access to your weekly personal growth section.
d) Weekly tracking of the key behaviors associated with your goals.
e) Digital version of the Thinking Tablet.
f) Long-term goal tracking. See your progress quarter by quarter, year by year.
Time is your most valuable commodity. We understand that and make implementing the Think it Be it system into your life simple and easy . . . by doing it for you.
As a CPA, accountability is a big deal to me. In this world we live in, we hear lots of big claims, but few provable results. I’m just the opposite. I prove my visualization program works with each person I work with.
My commitment to you is to apply the same science to your life that had such a dramatic impact on my own life. I also bring objectivity and my 30+ years experience to the table as I materially up your game as an entrepreneur. This is achieved by being candid and blunt. I’m this way because I’m absolutely intent on producing big results for you. This is all about showing you a way to operate at a much higher level each and every day. When you do, you will see your success go to the next level in all areas of your life.
When you do our program, we establish, at the inception, your short-term business goals as well as the key behaviors required to achieve them. Also the primary improvements you want to see in the other parts of your life as well. We then measure and quantify where you are today (establish baselines) and then determine what’s reasonable to expect in 90 days.
At the end of 90 days we have an “ACCOUNTABILITY MEETING”. We assess if our visualization program produced the desired results in career, health and your significant other relationship. Tweaks to your daily visualization are then recommended. This may include changing how you say things in your visualization in order to have an even greater impact. We also discuss ideas unique to your situation to help you achieve greater success in the future.
The differentiator between the mega-successful and the moderately successful used to be knowledge – but not anymore. Today it’s behavior control and a relentless focus on the 3 things that truly move the needle.
You can achieve these things by applying to your life the scientific discoveries that have occurred over the last 10 years regarding success and achievement. That’s what we teach in the Think it Be it program.
In my 30s and 40s, as an entrepreneur I made on average about $250,000 a year. If you had asked me to rate myself back then as an entrepreneur, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would’ve rated myself an “8”. I thought that because I worked harder than my friends.
But when I got into my 50s, I came to appreciate that I wasn’t an “8”. I was closer to a “3”.
And the reason I wasn’t making over a million dollars a year was because my own personal game wasn’t strong enough to do so! My income reflected my level of competence. That was painful to accept.
But once I doubled my self-control, improved my daily focus on what moved the needle, and created a way to put my personal growth on autopilot each and every week, my game raised big time. The proof was when my income went up by 20 times in my 50s over what it had been in my 30s and 40s.
I learned a valuable lesson. When you double your control over yourself, focus daily only on the things that really matter, and combine it with a high level of consistent weekly growth, it doesn’t just double your income. It has an exponential effect.
I’ll show you exactly how to up your game just like I upped my game.
If you are considering doing Think it Be it, clearly you’re a high achiever. And candidly, you don’t need external accountability! But what you do need is 2 things. First, an objective analysis of your business by a 7-figure-a-year entrepreneur who's been where you want to go. Then secondly, with you personally, you want a scientifically proven methodology for upping your game that you can use for the rest your life. A methodology that not only materially impacts your business, but also impacts your precious health and significant other relationship as well.
From Think It Be it you learn to operate at a much higher level every day. You create internal accountability. You gain a level of control over yourself beyond what you’ve ever experienced before. And isn’t that the one thing in life you want the most? More control over yourself…so you can get the things in life most important to you.
You can spend $18,000-$24,000 a year on a traditional coaching program. Alternatively, you can spend $8,500 one time for the Think It Be It program to up your game … so that you never need coaching.
If you would like to create your visualization on your own, we will help you. This is done by providing you with our “Starter kit.” It includes the following:
We appreciate that each person, and their situation, is unique. Contact us by email at John@thinkitbeit.net to apply Think It Be It to your life.
“What you envision in detail, on a daily basis, is what shows up in your life.”
Get this concept, and your life is changed forever!
Today you’re successful, but candidly, you don’t quite have the life you want. You want to be “even more” successful in each area of your life. See if this resonates with you.
It’s great to be an entrepreneur. You control your own destiny and income. But in spite of that, your path to financial security is unclear, even though you’re sharp and very hard-working. You wonder how you’re going to get from where you are today, to the point where your business provides you with the nest egg needed for long-term financial security. You’ve come to appreciate a painful fact …from doing the math. Unless you can get your business to the point of generating a consistent annual profit of over $1 million a year, you’re not going to have financial security.
You try to watch what you eat and exercise, but having the consistent discipline is hard. You don’t quite have the level of control over your health and appearance that you would like. It’s a significant concern for you.
If you have a relationship, it’s okay, but not quite as good as you would like on an ongoing basis. You see it can be much more than it currently is.
If you don’t have a relationship, how to find that right one is a mystery. You find it painful to see that you’re leaving the most important part of your life to fate …because you don’t see an alternative.
You read books and articles online every so often. But after a long day, consistent personal growth is difficult. Today you simply don’t grow as much as you would like. And that’s a problem, because you see to have an even better life than you have today, you have to continually raise your competencies. Continually learning key strategies for your business in critical areas like sales, marketing, and employee management. You also see that you need to be continually upping your knowledge about health, and increasing your knowledge and awareness of how to have a great significant other relationship.
You feel a responsibility to raise your competencies in each area of your life, but you don’t know how. You’re short on time, and there doesn’t seem to be a practical way to grow on a consistent basis. To some degree, you feel like a closed loop – because you’re simply not getting fresh ideas flowing into your head on a week in and week out basis.
On a daily basis you’re using the “default” operating system to run your life. An operating system that’s centuries old that gears you to daily survival. The result is 90% of your thoughts are fear-based. And since you’re innately focused on survival, you’re reactive in your life rather than proactive. Is daily survival really that big of a concern today?
Even though you’re hard-working, sharp and successful, the bottom line is, in the end, you’re leaving your success and achievement in life to fate. You don’t see an alternative. You don’t have near the control over your precious life you really want. That’s your biggest frustration. You also see that the fundamental way you create achievement in your career, in controlling your health and appearance, and in having a great relationship with your significant other, may not be working. At least not to the degree you want. You feel it in the pit of your stomach. Does this resonate?
You now have a clearly articulated plan, that is tailored to your unique, one-of-a-kind life and business. Your plan is a compilation of your unique knowledge of your business coupled with the valuable, third-party perspective, knowledge and experience of a 30+ year entrepreneur. A person who, by virtue of that experience, knows things you don’t know about business and fundamentally understands what’s practical and what isn’t. It’s a unique and effective collaboration.
You’ve created a roadmap for establishing a “culture of accountability” in your company. It’s a roadmap that’s both realistic and practical. It will pay dividends for many years to come. You’ve also learned 10 practical lessons for creating entrepreneurial success, that you didn’t know before.
You read this enlightened, well thought out, succinct plan every day. It articulates the long-term roadmap, as well as the step-by-step approach, to transform your company. It also articulates the 2-3 things that move the needle in your business. Things that don’t move the needle fall by the wayside, in terms of your focus and attention. Now the needle starts to move, and you feel a sense of control over your life you’ve never felt before. You’ve now implemented a tangible way to move your business to the next level, earning over $1 million a year. That, in turn, gets you financial security. The nest egg you need and want, so you can get to where you don’t have to work.
Lastly, this succinct articulation of your long-term plan and the short-term path you read each day evolves, as you evolve over time. Significantly, and for the first time ever, you now have a proven scientific methodology for evolving your business, by doing exactly what the mega-achievers do. Doing what separates them from the rest. Control of self and focus.
From doubling your control over yourself, you’re now able to control your eating. You also have heightened discipline in order to consistently work out. You see that you have a level of control over your health and your appearance that you haven’t had in the past.
You see that you can only control yourself. So you’re now making changes in yourself to be a better partner to your significant other. And that, in turn, inevitably causes your partner to reciprocate, both consciously and unconsciously. There is strong science behind why this happens.
You begin to lead the relationship, and actually create the relationship you want …in the most important part of your life. It impacts your happiness more than any external factor.
You’ve now defined exactly what you want in a partner. You’ve also defined in detail the person you need to be, to attract this ideal mate. Further, you’ve created an evolving plan for meeting the right person. You’re now being proactive, and experiencing a higher level of control over your life. You are no longer leaving the most impactful part of your life to fate.
You’ve now put your personal growth on autopilot. It’s tripled your personal growth. You now have a steady flow of actionable ideas coming in your life, consistently every week. Those ideas are in key areas of your life. Things like sales and marketing, time efficiency and organization, leadership of others, health, and practical tips on how to have a great significant other relationship.
You’ve gone from sporadically growing to growing big time, each and every week. You’re growing at a rate that exceeds 99% of everyone else. You’ve gone from being a closed loop to an open loop, and it’s stimulating a level of creativity you haven’t experienced before. You absolutely know that’s going to play out well for you long-term.
One that gears you on a daily basis for productivity, creativity, and happiness. Further, it’s an operating system created specifically for your unique, one-of-a-kind life. It overrides the operating system you’ve been using, that is based on daily survival. You see your results in all areas of your life materially change for the better, as does your ongoing happiness.
Before doing Think it Be it, you were not applying science to your life. You were not implementing into your life two key scientific discoveries, in the area of success and human achievement, that are proven, beyond a shadow of doubt, to work on everyone. You were leaving your success, in all areas of your life, up to fate.
But not anymore. Now, you finally possess the one most important thing in life. Control over your precious life! Easy to see how that would be the case. You’ve now compressed your life down to one sheet of paper. You can literally hold your life in your hand.
You’ve defined exactly the person you want to be, exactly what you want to accomplish, and precisely how you’re going to achieve your clearly defined goals. You’re applying the top goalsetting system in the world to your unique life. You’re feeding this vision to yourself every single day. It’s a 21st century operating system, customized to your unique life. Science then takes over. And that becomes the life you actually create.
The end result is you’ve doubled your control of yourself, tripled your personal growth, and now you’re focused every day on what moves the needle in your business. You have control of your life to a level you’ve never experienced before. You get the things most important to you in life. And all at a very small cost… 12 minutes a day!
You lose a rare opportunity, to create the life you want.
There’s an alternative to how you’ve been creating success in your your life. In your career, in controlling your health and appearance, and in having a great relationship with your significant other. To show you how rare this opportunity is, let me ask you a question.
How many times in your life has someone come to you and said “ there’s a tangible and simple way to create the life you want …and dream of”? Seriously, has that ever happened to you? My bet is it hasn’t. Here’s why.
Most ways to improve your success and achievement is simply intangible advice. But with Think It Be It, it’s a tangible way. First, you can literally hold in your hand the tool that changes your life. Secondly, it’s tangible because the time required to apply it to your life is FINITE. 12 minutes a day. Thirdly, it’s backed by tangible and proven science.
Don’t miss this unique and rare opportunity to materially impact your career, health, and significant other relationship—all at the same time. And you get the one most important thing in life—control over your precious life.
By doing Think It Be It, your life changes!
Because so often they are forgotten, yet in many ways, they are the foundation of our society. A Better Life Foundation teaches them first how to grab a hold of their lives and see a better life.

Bottom line is we help them create the simple habits in life that result in ongoing success and achievement. Watch our video to see our success stories.
If you’re an entrepreneur who’s been making six figures a year but has never made over $1 million a year, let’s face up to reality: Your results reflect the level of your game. As I mentioned, I came to this painful reality myself when I turned 50.
To significantly improve your results, you’ve got to significantly up your game. It’s up to you.
Maybe you’ve tried coaching, where you typically pay $1500 a month or $18,000 a year. But here’s the challenge with that: How do you get your coach tuned into your exact business, as well as your specific issues?
Keep in mind, as good as a coach might be, he or she has many other clients. By the very nature of coaching, it’s hard to get a coach to provide you with tangible, practical solutions tailored to YOUR unique business.
The better alternative is to get to the point where you don’t need a coach. That’s achieved by doubling your control of yourself and being laser focused every day on the 2-3 things that move the needle in your business. Those two things are accomplished by applying the science of success and achievement to your life.
Then add in a consistent personal growth plan put on autopilot coupled with the 10 practical lessons for being a successful entrepreneur that you don’t learn in school. That’s what the Think it Be it program provides. The end result is you surpass the need for a coach. By materially upping your game you could go from making six figures a year to over $1 million a year.
