Interview With Gina Lofton

Hello. This is Gena Lofton.

I would like to introduce you to Tom Corley.  Tom is a motivational and empowering speaker and is the author of several books that discuss the habits of the wealthy and how they differ from others. He discusses his childhood and how his successful businessman father ended up losing his fortune through a business sale that went bad.

He became interested in the habits of successful people when a friend with business problems asked him for advice. This sparked off an idea to conduct a study of people’s behavior and habits on what habits are required to derive success.

Early on he asked the question, “What do you do with your time at the end of your work day?” He got a lot of different answers, and he noticed that almost all of the wealthy people spent time away from home doing things that increased their knowledge and expanded their connections with others.

His study ended up breaking down habits into twenty different categories. To get participants interested in the study he offered free tax planning. He gathered a lot of information from various individuals and compared their net worth.  He narrowed things down to ten essential habits which he used in his first book. Later he went into broader detail in subsequent books. He says, “It was important to not only learn what the successful were doing but also what those less successful were doing wrong.”

Tom says, “Most poor people would just kick back and look for entertainment in their evenings, while the wealthy, would often practice and improve their skills.” It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are anyone can change their habits. Either by getting rid of bad habits or taking on new good ones.

He discusses various ways to change and improve your life and one way is by surrounding yourself with people who already have what you want. One should find the people that have the habits you want and make friends with them so that you can emulate their habits and adopt for yourself.

He also wrote a book called Rich Kids to help instruct parents and teachers on methods of assisting young people to develop to become successful in life.   In that book, he goes through all of the different things people should be teaching children. One is encouraging children to read and learn and get away from distractions like video games and television. His book contains several stories about how parents can help their children be successful adults.

You can find out more at his website where he has a lot of free material and a regular newsletter.

My interview with Grow The Heck Up

 

Persistence Turns Dreams Into Reality

This August I will be speaking alongside Mark Victor Hansen at the National Achievers Congress.

Mark, along with Jack Canfield, authored the book Chicken Soup of the Soul. With nearly 500 million copies sold, that book put Jack and Mark into the Guinness World Book of Records for the most books sold by any author or author team.

My first book, Rich Habits, published in 2010, had sold less than 1,000 copies through July, 15 2013. For over three years I was doing everything I could to promote Rich Habits, but media attention was nearly impossible to come by. Nonetheless, I kept at it. I kept pitch-Tweeting the media about my Rich Habits. My perseverance paid off on July 16, 2013 when a Yahoo interview I had done in June, 2013 went viral with over 2 million hits within a 24 hour period.

What followed is the stuff dreams are made of. I was interviewed by Dave Ramsey, the #3 radio host in the Unites States. He saw the Yahoo interview and invited me on his radio show.  Eight million people listened to Dave interview me about my Rich Habits for 30 minutes. Then CBS reached out to me and off I was to Boston for a CBS interview that was seen by over 20 million people in the U.S. and Canada. SUCCESS Magazine followed with an amazing interview for their October, 2014 magazine edition. And, on and on.

As a result, I have sold an enormous number of books.

And now I will be speaking alongside one of the greatest self-help experts in the world. I am where I am today because I dared to dream and refused to quit on my dream.

Dream. Dream big dreams.

Set audacious goals.

Focus on your dreams and goals every day.

Anything is possible. This small town boy from Freehold, New Jersey, a nobody-CPA, is real-life proof that dreams can come true and that those who refuse to quit, turn dreams into reality.

Never Quit on Your Dreams!
