This was the space where I recorded a ton of YouTube videos, course videos, and livestreams, as well as hosted a lot of team meetings. It was a special space, and I grew to love it very much. But because of the break-in and the lack of security in the business complex where this office was located, I decided it was time to move out and find a new space. Here’s how that process has unfolded, and the exciting new partnership that has emerged! Losing Gear and Dealing with Fear Shortly after the break-in happened, I published a YouTube video showing what happened. I also got a little emotional about it, mostly because it just felt very […]

James Wedmore: Commitment, and people toss this word around, oh, I’m committed Pat, I’ll tell you, I’m committed. Committed is not when I feel like it and when it’s convenient and when it’s not scary. Commitment is whatever it takes. And so when— Pat Flynn: Ooh, such powerful stuff we’re discussing today with my good friend James Wedmore, host of the Mind Your Business Podcast.

The Miracle Equation and How to Help You Achieve Your Biggest Goals

Hal Elrod: He said, “Hal, you don’t have that kind of cancer. You don’t have a slow growing tumor.” He goes, “You were healthy last week. You’re on the verge of death right now, and you’ve got days to live if we don’t do chemo.” I thought that was a scare tactic. I’m like, “You know, let me sleep on it.” I Googled it and basically found this is real, most people die from this cancer because they go and get misdiagnosed with pneumonia, which is what I was diagnosed with initially.

Pat Flynn: Being an entrepreneur, owning your own business, it’s tough. There’s a lot of things on that checklist to do. There’s a lot of big, ambitious goals that we have, and there’s a lot of hurdles along the way, but the number one thing that’s going to help you through all of that is what happens in your head and how you speak to yourself, the story that you are creating for yourself. And that voice. That voice is really whatever you want it to be, but there’s a lot of things in our past that, psychologically, we hear that voice say things that maybe we don’t want it to say. But then we start to believe it, and then it starts to determine what actions we take or don’t take and the results that we get or don’t get. What if you put in all this hard work […]
