If you’ve read my work, you’ve noticed me mention a mysterious team that helps create all the insights, videos, and strategies and tactics you learn. I’ve also mentioned some of my advisors and mentors.
But I rarely introduce you to them by name.
Today, I want to introduce you to one of my most influential mentors: Jay Abraham. His insights have changed my life. If you’ve ever wondered who I study and learn from, here’s your answer:
- His book made me over $100,000 in one month
- He helped double my business in one year
- I applied his advice to my personal life and had amazing experiences in just a few months
Having dinner with my mentor, Jay Abraham.
Click to watch an excerpt of my session with Jay.
Years ago, after I bought his book, Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got, I heard he was launching a program for small-business owners, so I applied to be in it. He checked my references, read my application, and eventually I got accepted. It was a ~$25,000 program — plus I had to fly from NYC to LA every month for 15 months just to get 45 minutes of his time.
And I would do it again for 10x the price.
Have you ever joined something (or even bought something) that was so good, price became a mere triviality? Maybe you joined a dodgeball club where you made 5 new friends…or moved to an apartment where you wake up every morning and love where you live…or even bought an amazing leather coat that fits you like a glove.
That’s when you realize that for the right experience, money doesn’t matter.
Think about our lives: It’s so rare that we get the chance to surround ourselves with someone who can make such a big impact. When was the last time someone gave you advice that actually changed your life (and will keep impacting you for the next 40 years?)
Now you see why I would have paid anything.
Along with 20 other small-business owners, we joined Jay once a month for 15 months. And I got the chance to learn why people flew from around the world to find a community of other people who want to improve themselves.
I think every one of us feels stagnant in a certain part of life. It could be your fitness, or your clothes, or your finances or job. Whatever it is, if we could find a group of people who have EXACTLY the same goals, can hold us accountable, and will challenge us to do more…we’d join it in a heartbeat.
And unlike a lot of people who patronize young people, I know that we’re WILLING to put in the time and work twice as hard as other people. We just want to know that it will pay off.
So what do you do when you have the ambition and the drive and you want MORE (not to listen to horrible advice about cutting back on every joy in life and waiting until you’re 65 to take a vacation)?
Answer: You find someone who’s done it and learn from them by scraping every piece of meat off the bone that they have to offer.
So how did I double my business? I learned many valuable strategies and tactics from Jay, but the most important things weren’t “secrets.” Instead, the real keys to growth that Jay opened up for me were:
- Having a friendly but firm leader who was there to support me — but call me out when I wasn’t living up to my own standards. (When was the last time you had someone like this for you?)
- A supportive community. (How many of us have friends who challenge us to be better?)
- Being held accountable. (Each month, I’d have to report what I committed to the previous month, what I accomplished, and sometimes explain why I DIDN’T do what I said I would do — in front of everyone.)
So, I’m honored to welcome Jay Abraham as this month’s Brain Trust guest.
I think you’ll be blown away by the insights just in this short excerpt from my session with Jay Abraham.
Want to know what every single top performer I’ve interviewed in Brain Trust (including CEOs, athletes, and best-selling authors) ALL have in common? Simple. It’s habits. Successful people don’t just catch a lucky break and coast — they systematically identify and integrate winning habits into their lives, day in and day out, for years.
Ramit’s Brain Trust is now closed indefinitely. But before we closed the program, we extracted all the juiciest success habits from our guests and packaged them into a 7-part Ultimate Guide to Habits that you can read anytime, anywhere — absolutely free.
Includes HD videos, action plans, and lessons from the world’s leading experts on behavioral change.
Imagine 30 days from today, jumping out of bed early with tons of energy. You actually LOOK FORWARD to the day — no more feeling frazzled — because of the new “peak performance” tools you’re using now.
Maybe you want to start eating healthier, or cook a meal once a week. Maybe you want to start a business, or even just read one book a month.
No problem. Start small. Pick 1 or 2 things to use these powerful techniques on, and watch what happens.
Just sign up below and I’ll send you a free copy of the Ultimate Guide to Habits right away.
