I managed to sneak away from the start-ups here at the first Tropical MBA in Puerto Galera Philippines for a few minutes in order to share some of the lessons we’ve been learning together.

Today we ask the question: what mindsets are critical to developing to ensuring your business success? You might be surprised by some of the answers we’ve developed.

Listen to this podcast and learn:

    • Why mindset issues are more important than market issues (and how to identify them).
    • The true cost of paying attention (and how to protect it from the Vampires in your life).
    • Why if you can’t “find your 5 hours” I’ll bet against your ability to grow a successful business.
    • And the one thing I wish I would done differently when I was just getting started.

Episode length: 22:10

    Great show, Dan!
    Really inspiring.

    Hey Dan,

    Don’t know about the best one ever because there has been A LOT of good ones you have done, but it was a great one with some pretty cool stuff people must know. A bit of a reality check for some I’m sure. I like the way you talk about mindset. It makes sense. You should talk about it more for us. It’s good to hear.

    Your podcasts are brilliant. Please keep posting . You inspire me.

    Wow, this was an awesome episode! Mindset definitely is the most important hurdle to overcome when you’re building a business. I’ve been hustling for two years now and I know I will never turn back, but in the beginning my doubts and fears made me lay awake (and yes, even cry) at night and I definitely had moments when I thought I would never make it and should just give up.

  • http://AuthorityAgent.com/ Craig Ernst

    He did say at the beginning of the podcast that it was “highlights” from a talk he gave, so I guess that’s all we get. :-/

  • Ben Starr

    Fantastic speech there Dan.

    Not really in need of motivation at the moment but will remember to listen to this again when I am!

  • http://www.facebook.com/gabe.meierotto Gabe Meierotto

    Extremely motivating. So nice, had to listen to it twice ;)

  • Progress Paddy

    Inspirational, Dan.

    You have a gift for ‘public’ speaking, Dan. I really enjoyed this. Like a 20min summary of the last year of LBP. Thanks for this.

  • http://twitter.com/JohnMcIntyre_ John McIntyre

    Wow. When you take away all the external differences between successful people, it’s the mindset that ties them together. I think it’s the one crucial thing that you gotta understand, and man, I feel like you KILLED it with this!

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Sorry about that Matt, this should be all fixed up now.

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Thanks John!

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Thanks John. I would have a heart attack in front of a real crowd, but this was given to a bunch of friends so it was easy.

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Thanks!

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Hey Dan,
    I just wanted to drop a quick / my first / line on your blog!

    I am listening to your podcast daily ( I’m at #53 atm) in order to continually feed my mind with the right information and general mindset. So worth it!

    P.S. Your podcasting has impoved tremendously since the earlier ones you recorded. (presentation, energy, overall communication)!

    Thanks for putting so much value out for free,
    David.

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Hey David thanks for taking the time to say hi! Appreciate you listening to our show !!!

  • Kevin James McAuley

    The alarm is set for 5am to start getting together my 5 hours.
    And I have just emailed a potential mentor to work for them.
    Great podcast Dan.

    booya, another awesome motivational masterpiece that has pushed me off the cliff. Listening to these articles over the last 8 months has given me the confidence to quit my job and turn down a 33% rise offer in favour for setting up my own company. Just keep pumping the knowledge out you two, cause im going to need it. Soon as the cashflow is up im treating myself to a DC meet.

    Loved it. This could even be summarized as a page between “About TMBA” and “Podcasts”. Great 20 minutes of everything that TMBA/LBP is all about.
