Is life just a lottery ticket, or are there choices you can make to direct your future? Andy Andrews shares how a few key decisions at critical moments in life can ultimately determine your success. If you’re feeling anxious or worried, he cautions that it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. And if you want to become more valuable, Andy says the key is to help others get what they want.   What you will learn: Why worry is focusing in the wrong direction The glass isn’t half full or half empty How to have a decided heart To greet each day with a forgiving spirit Money creates opportunity Why you should test your own rules How to become valuable to others The metaphor of burning your boats   Quotes: “I think about how uncertain life was a year ago. The virus was on the way, social unrest was on the way. It’s just that, because we didn’t know it, that didn’t make it any less uncertain, it just made it less of a focus.” – Andy Andrews “If you worry a lot, focus is not your problem, because worry is focus. It’s just focusing in the wrong direction.” – Andrew Andrews “If you believe that this is the worst time that has ever happened, and this is the worst thing that could have ever happened, that becomes somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy, because it tends to make us lay down, do less, feel like the verdict is in.” – Andy Andrews “So much of life is a decision.” – Andy Andrews “We forget sometimes, the purpose of analysis is to come to a conclusion. It’s not to continue to analyze.” – Andy Andrews “It turns out that forgiveness is a decision. It’s not an emotion. But we treat it like an emotion, which is why it drags us around like a dog on a leash.” – Andy Andrews “It goes well beyond money or things, but it’s the key to achieving anywhere near your potential, and that is to become hugely valuable to other people.” – Andy Andrews “Products are commodities, but relationships are really the true treasure.” – Derrick Kinney “They created a situation in their lives where there was nothing to do by persist without exception.” – Andy Andrews   Free Valuable Report for our Listeners: “3 Beliefs About Money Your Kids Should Learn that No One is Teaching Them”   Follow Good Money Good Hands Good Work on Instagram!    Recommended Resources: Just Jones: Sometimes a Thing Is Impossible . . .

And so, a really easy thing to do to increase happiness with our money is take a break from things and come back.” – Dr. Mike Norton “And so again, we overestimate how awesome buying the thing will be without thinking enough about how it’s really going to change our time.” – Dr. Mike Norton “But when you spend money on other people, it gives you a huge feeling that you’ve had an impact on somebody else, that you’ve had an impact in general.” – Dr. Mike Norton “So when we buy stuff for ourselves, it’s like pizza.

An hour later, a day later, a month later, it just wasn’t the right thing to do.” – Dr. Mike Norton “In a funny way, because experiences disappear, they allow us to enjoy a fantasy of them later on.” – Dr. Mike Norton   Free Valuable Report for our Listeners: “3 Beliefs About Money Your Kids Should Learn that No One is Teaching Them”   Follow Good Money Good Hands Good Work on Instagram!    Recommended Resources: Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending by Dr. Michael Norton and Elizabeth Dunn (

Do you desire to make more than just a living? Like many small business owners, you want to grow but don’t know how. Michael Gerber has revolutionized how small businesses can strategically build and expand. If you want to be a true entrepreneur, he says you need repeatable systems (think McDonalds), a blank piece of paper with a beginner’s mind and to avoid the fatal mistake business owners make.   What you will learn: How to keep a 10,000-foot view of your business Why most small businesses fail Money is the product of passion The driving force behind the True Entrepreneur How to scale a business Intentionality is more important than hope The 5 essential skills   Quotes: “It means that every single one of us must rise above who we are, rise above where we are, rise above what we do and help you think about what we do, and in the process of rising above it and enabling us to look down upon it, so to speak, we suddenly see it with a clarity that has never existed before while we were all caught up in the midst of it.” – Michael Gerber “So, they go into business for themselves to get rid of the boss, thinking, ‘I can do this for myself. I don’t need a boss.’ And the moment they do that they become their boss, and now they’re working for a lunatic.” – Michael Gerber “It’s almost like when an airplane leaves the runway, if they’re not tacking toward the right destination, they will clearly land at the wrong airport.” – Derrick Kinney “As we go to work on what we do and experience the vitality and liberation of energy in the process, the money comes.” – Michael Gerber “It’s a system and one can rise above that system and take in all of the component operating parts of that system and begin to work on each and every one of those integrated parts of that system. That’s what a truly fluent, extraordinarily invested entrepreneur is looking at.” – Michael Gerber “The true entrepreneur is the dreamer, the thinker, the storyteller, the leader, and each and every one of them has his or her role in establishing the foundation, the platform, the viscera, the heart, the soul, the mind underlying this great growing enterprise that they’re going to create.” – Michael Gerber “If everything’s different, nothing’s the same. And if nothing’s the same, you can’t grow it because it’s chaos supreme. Just like every small business is today, chaos supreme.” – Michael Gerber “Hope has something to do with outside of our work. Intention has everything to do with inside of our work.
