Most millionaires I’ve interviewed over the past 30+years failed there way to success. Literally. They failed and used the lessons they learned to become super-successful. One of the key common denominators that I discovered with these people (over 1,200 to date) is their ability to sustain a high level of enthusiasm in the face of private and public rejection. No one likes rejection, but the great ones know it’s part of the process of creating uncommon success. Watch this short video I taped at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, in Italy, and I’ll look forward to your comments.

The Rio Olympic’s Swimmers Scandal has cast a dark cloud over what should have been a celebration. USA Swimmer Ryan Lochte, a 6-time gold medalist, and three younger swimmers decided to urinate on a gas station wall and vandalize the bathroom in Rio after a night of drunken debauchery. To add insult to injury, Lochte went on international television and claimed to have been robbed. Lochte made a cleverly concocted PR laced apology on the Today Showin an effort to save his endorsement deals, but his sponsors wisely dumped him. Absent from the story: The US Olympic Committee, who says they will investigate. I’ve done 19 TV, radio and print interviews in the past few days regarding the story calling on USOC CEO Scott Blackmun to take action, but as I predicted, they have done nothing. Watch this short post on my mental toughness solution to this situation and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Martin Luther King stood for equality and changed the world. What do you stand for? Watch this short (1:20) video I shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where Dr. King was gunned down on April 4, 1968, and see if you can answer the question.
People approach me all the time and say: “you have it made, Siebold. You get paid to give speeches, appear on TV, radio, in magazines and newspapers around the world. What a life!” And the truth is, they’re right! But the fact is that I didn’t make it because I’m smart. I made it because I had a mentor. A world-class mentor. Most successful speakers had mentors, and chances are if you’re going to make it big in this business, you’ll need a mentor, too. If you can see yourself speaking, writing and being interviewed on Mental Toughness, I want to mentor you. Many of my students have become very successful. As a matter of fact, one of them made nearly $2M speaking last year. Pretty impressive. The application deadline is approaching fast, so if you’re interested, watch this short video post and then visit www.speakersapprentice.com and watch the full 41 minute presentation.
Mental Toughness Training begins with seeing life and the world around us as they are, not as we wish they were. How many of us get stressed out on a daily basis without considering the fact that the very nature of life is temporary? It’s easy to get caught up, frustrated and overwhelmed with problems and people that raise our blood pressure. By facing the fact that life is short and it will end relatively soon, it allows us the freedom to let things go that used to stress us out. Watch this short video I shot on this subject and I’ll look forward to your comments.
In a perfect world, we would turn our money over to professional money managers and forget about it. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and if you don’t watch your money, you may not have any when you need it. Mental Toughness is about taking responsibility for your life, and that includes your money. If the great recession of 2008 taught us anything, it’s how fast your wealth can evaporate if you’re not careful—and even when you ARE careful!
