Have you ever had the opportunity to talk with someone that you have looked up to for a long time? What would you ask them? What would you talk about? Recently I had the opportunity to do just that…my guest and I talk about fear, business and how to prosper with purpose.
In today’s episode, our guest and I talk about:
- What the root of business is
- How business is inherently good
- What “prosperity with purpose” means
- The importance of authenticity in business
- The role Ray’s faith plays in his life
About Today’s Guest
Ray is a copywriter by trade (meaning he writes sales copy, so don’t ask him how to copyright your new widget). He has worked with some of the most powerful voices in leadership and business including New York Times bestselling authors Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen (Chicken Soup for the Soul), and Tony Robbins. He is also a speaker and author, hosts my favorite podcast, wrote the #1 Amazon Bestseller Writing Riches, and a good friend.
The words you say determine your attitude (how you feel) and your altitude (how much you will achieve). Are your words inspiring you and equipping you? Or are they limiting and crippling you? The good news is the choice is yours.
I read an interesting proverb recently. It demonstrated clearly the power that our words have on our mindsets, our feelings, and our performance.
Blow on a spark and up it flares, spit on it and out it goes; both are the effects of your mouth.
Your words can light a fire or put it out.
Is it possible to make a living teaching what you love? How about building a 7-figure income doing so? Oh sure, you know it’s possible…after all, Tony Robbins has done just that. So have countless others. But those are the “special people” right? Wrong. Regular people, just like you and me, are doing exactly that. And today, I’ll show you how you can, too.
I don’t know about you, but often when I see online teachers and “gurus,” one (or more) of four thoughts comes to mind:
- This guy’s a scam artist (and while that is rare, it is sometimes the case).
- This guy is good…so good that I could never be like him.
- I could do that…but why am I not? What does he have that I don’t?
- I wish I knew how to do that.
How’s your energy level right now? Do you need a boost? There are two types of people in the world…those who need an energy boost right now and those that will need an energy boost at sometime in the future.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that at some point in your life, you have had a lack of energy…Let’s face it…Changing the world can be exhausting. Between work, family, entertainment and activities and everything else that you are doing every day, there is bound to be times when you feel like you don’t have the energy to get through the next 10 minutes…let alone the rest of the day!
Is there a breakthrough you’ve been waiting for? Think for a moment right now…what is that something that you think will change your life, set you on a new course, and lead you towards the life you’ve been dreaming of? You may think your breakthrough is so far off, but the truth is that your breakthrough is a whole lot closer than you think.
What is a Breakthrough?
Tony Robbins says that:
A breakthrough is a moment in time when the impossible becomes possible — when you don’t just talk about something, but you finally take massive action and do whatever it takes to make it happen. You make a move to truly change and improve your world. – MONEY Master the Game, Tony Robbins
