As business owners, we often have the highest highs and the lowest lows. One minute we feel like we’re on top of the world, and the next we’re horribly discouraged and feel like nothing we do is really making an impact. I felt that way recently, then a few friends of mine talked some sense into me! Watch the video below for what I realized…and what it means for you!
Has anyone ever spoken words over you that changed the course of your life? Have you ever heard or read something that ignited something on the inside of you that forever changed who you are? Then you know the power of words. And it’s the words that you say, that you declare, that hold the key to unleashing your full potential.
By the time you read this, I might be cradling a newborn baby in my arms. As I write this, my wife, Tara, is due with our second child any day now. So, naturally, my mind is racing with thoughts of all the things I’ll need to do for this child as his or her father.
If you want to change the world, there are certain attitudes you must adopt.
They are non-negotiable, absolutely essential to success, and you will notice them among all successful people.
So what are those attitudes? Well, you’ll have to listen to Episode 006 to find out.
“There’s lots of bad reasons to start a company. But there’s only one good reason…” From @PhilLibin of @Evernote (Tweet That)
Some people choose not to be a leader.
Some people choose not to change the world. They use the excuse that they aren’t a born leader. Some people, they say, are just natural leaders. But not them.
That’s a pathetic excuse because it’s based entirely on a false premise. No one is a natural leader. Not even you.
You are not a natural leader.
You are not an adaptive leader or a leader by circumstance.
You are not a leader because your father or mother was a leader. Or because you were in the Army or Marines.
You are not a leader because you got a Harvard MBA, read some books, listen to some podcasts, or attend some seminars.
We’re very close to launching my long-awaited podcast, The World Changer Show with Matt McWilliams.
It’s been nearly two years in the making and it’s coming on September 16, 2014! (It sure feels good to write that date and put that out for all to see)
The show’s focus will be on learning how to be a world changer. We will release two new episodes each week, with each lasting approximately 30-40 minutes. There will be a variety of episodes, some solo lessons with just me and some interviews with amazing world changers. We’re even going to ask you to help us select some great people to interview. We want to introduce the world to those world changers who aren’t necessarily famous.
Along the way, you’ll grow as a person, develop as a leader, be motivated to succeed, and learn how to communicate better, surround yourself with a support group, and much, much more. I’ll share my tips and tricks to help you change your life and ultimately the world. I’ll also motivate you to get out of your comfort zone and be the world changer you were born to be.
HOWEVER, we need your help to make this happen. Before we start producing the first season and launch this thing on September 16 (that’s only 7 weeks away!), we want to make sure we’re covering the right topics and have the right guests.
That is where you come in. Please take 1-2 minutes to answer this super-short survey—it’s only two questions…
What are the top 3 topics you want me to cover in my upcoming podcast and what world-changing guests would you like to hear on the show? That’s it. Two quick questions so I know what to cover and on September 16, we change the world together. Sound like a plan?
Today is the last day to get two WORLD CHANGER (JUST LIKE YOU)™ t-shirts for the price of one.
This awesome promotion ends tonight at midnight Pacific Time. Then they will be full price.
Was it worth it?
Many people have asked me about doing their own shirts as a result of this launch. It’s not very common for a blogger like me to offer t-shirts after all.
How hard was it? What all was there to do? Where are you getting them? Was it worth it?
My answer: “YES! It was worth it, but maybe not for the reason you think.” Here’s an inside look at the process.
How we did it
“Inspiring…to me and to everyone who will see it!”
“Such a powerful message. Can’t wait to wear it proudly.”
“I can’t wait to be a walking billboard for such an important message.”
“The only thing missing is a giant screen print of your face, Matt. That is the only way to make these more awesome.”
That’s what people are saying about the WORLD CHANGER (JUST LIKE YOU)™ t-shirt. (OK, I made that last one up…and thankfully there is not a giant print of my face on these, just powerful words.)
You were born to change the world. You were born to make history.
Believe it. Become it. Pass it on.
That’s the message I want you to get deep down inside. It’s who you are. And I want you to spread it to others. It’s the message I want you to wear…literally.

Buy One, Give One Free
Next week, you will have an opportunity to buy a limited edition WORLD CHANGER (JUST LIKE YOU)™ t-shirt. In fact, for one week only (seriously, this offer is so good it will never be repeated), you will be able to buy one and get another one free to give.
Do you want history to remember you?
I believe that deep down we all have that desire. We truly do want to change the world and we want to be remembered. We want to leave a legacy and to “put a dent in the universe,” as Steve Jobs so famously said when he started Apple.
What does being a history maker look like? This:
This is one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen.
It’s of a man who changed the world.
What’s the secret to raising positive kids who believe they can change the world?
Short answer: There is none. There is no one secret to raising children who are positive, who get good grades or who go on to change the world.
But there is one technique that could make a big difference. And it is vastly underused.
