If you’re like most people, you were raised with an understanding of The Golden Rule, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)

Regardless of your belief system, you have to admit that this is a pretty solid idea. But does it apply to governments as well as individuals? In this episode Sean and I have an provocative discussion that is sure to raise the hackles of more than a few people.

Tip of the Week

We’ve discovered the greatest camera ever made. Pretty bold statement, right? If you’re a content creator who relies on outstanding video (YouTubers I’m looking at you) then this camera is going to change your world.

With this camera you can take stunningly sharp videos and crisp photos with one device. The mirrorless frame is lightweight for easy travel, and the 20.3-megapixel technology delivers on clarity. We go into a whole geeky discussion about this inside the episode, but suffice it to say that this camera is a photographic rock star!

Feature Presentation: “Building A Storybrand with Donald Miller”

Donald Miller is the CEO of StoryBrand and every year helps more than 3,000 business leaders clarify their brand message. His audiences are challenged to lean into their own story, creatively develop and execute the story of their team, and understand the story of their customers so they can serve them with passion. Don’s thoughts on story have deeply influenced leaders and teams for Pantene, Ford/Lincoln, Zaxby’s, Chick-fil-A, Steelcase, Intel, Prime Lending and thousands more. Combined, Don’s books have spent more than a year on the New York Times Bestsellers list.

Here are some snippets from our conversation:

  • If you confuse you lose – Why asking your customer to focus on more than one idea is killing your business (17:49)
  • Even a caveman can do it – Why the “Grunt Test” is important and how you can use it to test your marketing in five seconds or less (19:22)
  • Accidentally ignoring the important – How story plays such an important role in our businesses and why it’s so often ignored (22:05)
  • Using resistance as a compass – Why your insecurities and fears can be used as a guide to the life you desire most (24:09)
  • The Storyteller’s Formula – What movies can teach us about making marketing matter (26:15)
  • Clarify to amplify – How the human brain processes story and how you can use that revelation to multiply the results in your business (28:38)
  • Survive and thrive – What you need to know about the human brain, and how that knowledge can cause your message to stand out in the marketplace (30:37)
  • The making of a President – What the results of recent elections can teach us about the power of story when used correctly…and incorrectly (33:55)
  • It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it – How using the proper framework can transform your marketing from sad to successful (36:07)

Rank #4: The Apps & Tools We Use to Make Stuff

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is about what specific apps, websites, sources, courses, and other tools we use to make stuff.

In this episode we’ll get geeky with you and dive deep into that exact subject.

Click here to download or listen to this episode now.

Spiritual Foundations

How do you respond when someone asks, “How are you today?”

If you’re like most people you respond with something like:

  • “Fine”
  • “Okay”
  • “I’m hangin' in there”

This may come as news to you, but you get to decide how you process your day.

In this episode I give you some reasons why you should carefully consider the instructions you give your brain, because what you say is often what you experience.

Selah.

Tip Of The Week

If one of your goals this year is to take a trip…enroll in course…get in better shape…or anything else you’re likely to not do when it’s no longer convenient…today’s tip is for you!

Most of us struggle to achieve our goals, that’s because there’s a big difference between having a goal and achieving a goal—stickK works by helping people eliminate this gap by using a Commitment Contract.

A Commitment Contract is a binding agreement you sign with yourself to ensure that you follow through with your intentions—and it does this by utilizing the psychological power of loss aversion and accountability to drive behavior change.

By asking users to sign Commitment Contracts, stickK helps users define their goal, acknowledge what it’ll take to accomplish it, and leverage the power of putting money on the line to turn that goal into a reality.

Quote Worth Note

Seth Godin tells this story in “What To Do When It’s Your Turn (And It’s Always Your Turn”…

“Stephen King, one of the most beloved, famous and bestselling authors ever, often goes to writer’s conferences. After he talks for a little bit he says, ‘Any questions?’

Inevitably, someone raises their hand—I’m paraphrasing here—and says, ‘Mr. King, you are one of the most beloved, famous, and bestselling authors ever. What kind of pencil do you use to write your books?’ It’s almost as if knowing what kind of pencil Stephen King uses will help them be more like Stephen King.”

It’s not the pencil.

It’s not the computer.

It’s not the app.

Or as they say in music… “It’s not the gear, it’s the ear.”

Rank #6: The ONE THING That Causes You To Fail

Podcast cover
Read more

Are you tired of feeling sick, broke or like you are a failure? Today we go through the 12 principles of Think and Grow Rich, how to focus on your one thing, talk about being decisive people like the Disciples, and how to to get the best audio quality in your podcast.

Click here to download or listen to this episode now.

Tip of the Week: Fix Your Podcast Audio

If your podcast quietly is less than perfect, hire someone to edit it for you. Get rid of distractions and background noise in your audio.  Make your podcast more user-friendly. Danny Ozment, from Emerald City Productions, tells us how important the sound quality of your podcast is. Not only does it help your listeners create a relationship with you, it increases their ability to understand and listen while on the go. Don’t just hire anybody to help edit your podcast, but hire someone who really knows what they are doing.

Spiritual Foundations: Be Decisive

Be a decisive human being. When we are decisive, it demonstrates our faith. We know Who we are, WHOSE we are, and WHAT we stand for. It is easy to make decisions based on our morals and beliefs if we are decisive. Look at the Disciples, Jesus said “Come, follow me” and they did. They didn’t have to pray about it or ask someone if they should- they just did.

Feature Presentation “The One Thing That Causes You To Fail- Or Succeed

What is your one thing?  Napoleon Hill decided to take on the book Think And Grow Rich in a matter of 60-seconds, and he took 20 years to finish it.  Do you think that he was happy that he persevered and finished that project? It became his grand obsession for him, and I can relate. When I took Michael Hyatt’s “Best Year Ever” challenge in 2015, it became my grand obsession. I made having my best year ever, and my best life ever my destiny. If you think your destination is about what is set out for you., you are wrong. Your destiny is where you end up based on the past you decide to take. So, what have you decided your destiny is?

I always suggest people sit down and write out their perfect day to help achieve their destiny.  I want you to sit down and write out every detail of what your perfect day would be. Every detail from the start of your day until your head hits the pillow at night.  It should be at least 3 or 4 pages long.  Were you bold enough? Is it really your perfect day?

Now, you don't need some complicated plan or scheme to accomplish this “perfect day/perfect living”. You just need to focus on your 1 thing- your unique wisdom and knowledge only you have that you can share with others. As John Lee Dumas says- FOCUS.

F-Follow

O- One

C- Course

U- Until

S- Success

And Follow the 12-Principles of Think And Grow Rich

  1. Know what you are after
  2. Have Self-confidence
  3. Use the power of habit force
  4. Take Initiative and leadership
  5. Have imagination
  6. Have enthusiasm
  7. Have self-control
  8. Go the extra mile
  9. Have an attractive personality- Be you!
  10. Have accurate thinking
  11. FOCUS
  12. Co-operate with others

So really, the ONE THING that causes you to fail or succeed is how you pursue your ONE THING.

Rank #7: The 5 Phases of a Prosperous Business

Podcast cover
Read more

Today I want to cover some new directions for the company and how we’re going to be helping you in new and improved ways.  

Don’t worry, we’ll continue to focus on:   

  • Copywriting and marketing
  • Building an online business
  • Strengthening your spiritual life

I don’t believe it’s possible to separate the two things, business and spirituality. Because you only have one life, spirituality and prosperity are both part of the same life.

The premise for today’s podcast: Every person listening to this show can and should build a prosperous personal-brand business by following 5 proven phases.

If you get these phases out of order you will have problems. If you are frustrated with lack of traction in building your personal brand online, chances are you’re out of sequence.  

  • If you want to start a platform-based, personal-brand business by taking your knowledge, your wisdom, your expertise, and your giftings and you can share them with people (the world) via the power of the Internet.
  • You can establish your global reach for $50-$100 by creating a radio show (podcast), TV show (YouTube channel) and other various ways of having people communicate with you (social media).  (7:11)
  • Many businesses have done just that.
    • Casey Neistat  started out with a video camera and making movies and had no audience, no following, and built a seven million follower YouTube channel. Part of his company was purchased by CNN for $25 million last year.  (8:00)
    • Peter McKinnon, a photographer, cinematographer, and videographer who lives in Canada has built a million subscriber YouTube channel.  
    • It’s not just YouTube channels, there are people in all social media markets like Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. You know the names of the people who rule these marketplaces, but you may not know the people in the niches that are getting wealthy serving a small, few thousand people in their particular niche. (9:00)

The internet and the ability to build a personal brand online is the great equalizer of all entrepreneurs.”  Ray Edwards

5 Phases of a Prosperous Business

  1. Determine the meaning of life and the meaning of your business.
  2. Define your mission, your vision, your goals, and your tasks.
  3. Clarify your message. (Who you help, why they need you, what you do that helps)
  4. Create marketing materials. (Marketing that is clear, repeatable, and sticky.)
  5. Collect money.  (Give value first.)

Tip of the Week

It’s common knowledge but it’s not common practice, “Carry a pen and a notebook with you at all times.”

The reasons for your pen and notebook:

  • Be ready when inspiration strikes.
  • You can always count on a pen and paper (unlike the internet or electricity).
  • A pen and paper don’t make unexpected interruptions or distractions (no software updates, wait time, or computer bug).

Capturing your thoughts and your best ideas is invaluable.  

If you’re a writer, this is required. “ Writers are the ones with the pens and the notebooks.” (4:40)

Spiritual Foundations

The Dream… Should you pursue your dreams?  God is the giver of dreams.

  • He places the talents and gifts within you.
  • He spurs you on to have the motivation to go out and give those gifts to the world.
  • Commerce, the marketplace, and capitalism are all God’s ideas.  (2:37)

Proverbs 18:16, “A man’s gifts make room for him and brings him before great men.”

“The world needs your message.” — Ray Edwards

  • God gave you your gift, not for you but for others.  
  • Your gift makes room for you and it brings you before great men and women.  
  • In God’s kingdom, it is always fair but it’s not always equal.   
  • According to your gifting will be the opportunity. (4:14)

It’s up to you whether you’re going to seize your gift and take advantage of it or not. God intended your gift for your benefit and others. I think you should grab hold of it and make the most of it.

Feature Presentation “The 5 Phases of a Prosperous Business”
  • How to create your own media empire – Why overcoming the learning curve will give you the freedom to create your own business (with your own distribution channel). (10:10)
  • Why it’s better for your customers if you keep more of the money – How avoiding big corporations and committees allows you to create exactly what your customers want.  (11:00)
  • Revel 77’s new branding advantage – How to leverage your personal brand and beat your competition.  (12:34)
  • Discover why you’re not getting traction or creating the income you want – How Armand Morin’s sequentialism principle is mysteriously impacting your business.  (13:40)
  • Fire-ready-aim – How stopping and giving a bit of thought at the beginning (although it’s counterintuitive) helps entrepreneurial types increase their success rates.  (15:40)
  • Why are you here? What are you supposed to do? How uncovering these core beliefs is the essential first step in creating your business.  (20:25)
  • Why sharing your gift with the world for the purpose of reward is being like Jesus – How to define your mission (its unique to you).  (25:31)
  • Uncover the clues to your mission – How what you love to do, what you love to see, and the people you love to be around are the keys to your vision.  (27:55)
  • My objective is to end poverty.  My vision of how to make that happen is to teach entrepreneurs and empower them to grow their prosperity and create more wealth. (28:20)
  • Writing down your goals and setting numeric goals (even the Bible kept records of numbers) – How one-year goals related to your tribe is a great place to start.  (30:15)
  • Mission+Vision+Discipline = Destiny  (31:50)
  • It’s never too late to change your destiny.  (32:30)
  • Why messaging is phase 3 of successfully building a personal brand business – How phase 1 and phase 2 are crucial to your messaging (phase 3).  (33:50)
  • Ready to leave your corporate life?  How to create your personal brand by harnessing the power of the internet through global distribution of your wisdom, experience, and gifts.  (36:23)
  • “Does this sound like you?” – How to instantly connect with your customer even if you have no formal training in writing sales copy, launching products, or selling to people. (38:00)
  • How learning to write sales copy refines your business and helps you build it bigger with more success, easier, and faster.  (39:24)
  • Money is phase five of your personal brand business – How to “Begin with the end in mind.” Not, “Begin with the end in your pocket.”  (42:14)
  • Put the fuel in first, stoke the flames, and then you get the heat – How profits follow work and why money is phase five of building a personal brand business. (42:50)
  • Solving a problem for free first is powerful – How using a sales letter or a sales video to create a value exchange is the fifth phase in building your business.  (44:18)

Proverbs 16:3, “Commit to the LORD whatever you do and your plans will succeed.”

It doesn't mean you have to be a believer, but you see your work as holy and sacred and you commit that to God, then I think you'll find, more often than not, you'll:

Something to try, just see what happens.

Rank #9: How to Build Your List by Giving Away Your Best Content for Free

Podcast cover
Read more

Content marketing is a hot industry buzzword right now, and everyone seems to have a theory about what works. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time for theory, so in this episode I’m going to show what we do in our own content marketing…because it works.

The key to successful content marketing is value, because we’re in a current environment where you've got to give value upfront. In fact, our topic in this episode is a term I’ve coined called Value First Content Marketing. Stay tuned, this is going to rock your world.

Click here to download or listen to this episode now. Spiritual Foundations

In this episode of spiritual foundations, I want to get back to basics. One of the things I’ve learned as a copywriter is that the precise meaning of words is vitally important. Let me share a recent example of this…

My wise wife was having a conversation with a person with whom she's acquainted, and they got into the discussion about what it means to be under grace. My wife was explaining, “Well you know our sins are covered, so we don't have to worry about sin anymore. That problem is dealt with.”

This person rather inappropriately took affront to that and begin to argue. She countered, “Well, what about James 2:26, it says faith without works is dead. If you don't have works, then you're not saved.” My wife responded with, “Well, I didn't come prepared to have this debate, but I guess I would start with looking up the precise meaning of the word ‘death’ or ‘dead’ in that verse to see what it really means.” I was so proud of her.

I looked it up, and it means “inactive.” It reads, “Faith with no works that flow from the faith, is inactive,”…which is a whole different thing.

Just remember that Jesus is perfect theology. Knowing that, be very careful about what you’re willing to blindly accept as true.

Tip of the Week

Our tip of the week is a resource that we're giving you for free. Normally, we talk about other people's products or services or books, but this week we’re giving you a week's worth of what we use to do our own content marketing. You can then use this as a model to structure your own…I’m just asking that you don't take this content and pretend it's yours.

This will be a good way for you to look at the source material we use to create stuff and turn it into different pieces of content for your business. You can download this free resource at rayedwards.com/315. Now go forth and prosper!

Feature Presentation: “How to Build Your List by Giving Away Your Best Content for Free”

There's a lot of talk about content marketing, and there are a lot of content marketing experts and gurus that'll teach you content marketing, but what they do in most cases is neither content, nor is it marketing…it’s a thinly disguised sales pitch.

Any business that markets online can and should grow their e-mail list by using the Seven Pillars of Value First Content Marketing.

The Seven Pillars

  1. There are three forces that have converged to bring us to this point.
  2. To attract attention, you’ve got to fight the content wars.
  3. Content marketing works for everyone, and everyone should be doing it.
  4. Give valuable content as often as possible.
  5. You must be present on every significant channel.
  6. You must have an investment mindset.
  7. Practice the Strategy of Preeminence.

Here are some snippets from our conversation:

  • Nobody was born with a list – Why you should ignore theory and model your list-building after a strategy that actually works (19:55)
  • Words matter – Why it’s important for you and your bottom line to know what content marketing is, and more importantly, what it is not (22:25)
  • The proof is in the pudding – Meet David Robertson, who traveled 3,000 miles to give 30,000 reasons why this stuff really works (23:30)
  • The perfect storm of content marketing – Discover the three forces that have brought us to the point where we have to think differently about how we market, and how to use those forces to your advantage (25:01)
  • Open war is upon you – Why the key to victory in the content wars is to offer your unique value (27:35)
  • All means all – Why every business should use Value Based Content Marketing to stay ahead of the game, win market share, and to make more money (32:24)
  • How soon is now – Why you need to accept the uncomfortable truth that the more value first content you release, the faster you grow (33:14)
  • Your presence is required – Why your blog, live video, podcast, and print needs to be present on every significant channel (36:42)
  • Avoid the unsubscribe link – Why you must be willing to sacrifice short-term gain for long-term profit and value (40:30)
  • Inside the mind of Jay Abraham – Why you don't want to be simply the superior marketer…you want to be the superior provider (42:17)

Rank #10: The Power Of Belief

Podcast cover
Read more

Belief is a powerful force in the human life. What drives you to do what you do? And what causes you to do the things you don't do? Placebo effect / Nocebo effect

Click here to download or listen to this episode now.

Spiritual Foundations

Matthew 6:34 (NIV) Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own…

Tip of the Week

CutStory for Instagram- You can take any video you have and it turns them into 15-second clips for your Instagram Story.

Feature Presentation: “The Power Of Belief”

Our beliefs are, in large part, not chosen by us consciously.

Quote from Ayn Rand:

As a human being, you have no choice about the fact that you need a philosophy. Your only choice is whether you define your philosophy by a conscious, rational, disciplined process of thought and scrupulously logical deliberation – or let your subconscious accumulate a junk heap of unwarranted conclusions, false generalizations, undefined contradictions, undigested slogans, unidentified wishes, doubts and fears, thrown together by chance, but integrated by your subconscious into a kind of mongrel philosophy and fused into a single, solid weight: self-doubt, like a ball and chain in the place where your mind's wings should have grown.

How do we form beliefs? * Sensory data * what is it? * what does it mean? * what should I do?

Beliefs help form * values * rules * behavior * quality of life

1. My value is in my ability to produce. (My value is in my ability to initiate production.) 2. I have to be the best if I want to lead. (Leadership is bringing out the best in others.) 3. I can’t help people who have more success than me. (I want ALL the people I help to have MORE success than me.) 4. I want no employees because employees equal problems. (Employees help me multiply wealth – for me, themselves, and our clients. Everybody wins) 5. Some people have special gifts no one else can have. (“What one man can do, another man can do.“) 6. The purpose of wealth is to help others. (The purpose of wealth is to show God’s glory – and the”glory of God is a man fully alive”.) 7. Life is hard, and then you die. (In this world we will have trouble – but Jesus has overcome the world.. so we should be encouraged.)

Start noticing your beliefs. Start questing them. And if they don’t serve you, start changing them!

To Change any Belief

Undermine the supports Build support for the new belief Use the Pain/Pleasure balance Condition the new belief

Rank #11: Change Your Thinking And Change Your Life

Podcast cover
Read more

Is it possible that by thinking a different way, you could experience life in a totally different way? Can you take control of your thoughts and eradicate depression and create joy?  Today as I interview Cliff Ravenscraft, we discuss living the life of your dreams, what conferences to attend this year, and why you should stop working for God's approval.

Click here to download or listen to this episode now.

Tip of the Week: Fix Your Podcast Audio

The conference you must attend this fall is the Free the Dream Conference.  This is put on by Cliff Ravenscraft and is being held September 7-9 in Franklin, Tenessee. I will be speaking at it. If you want to change your life for the better, live the life of your dreams and break free from what is holding you back, You need to be at this event!

Go to www.freethedream.live and get your tickets now.

Spiritual Foundations: Be Decisive

There is nothing we can do to get into heaven. We all try to align ourselves with our creator, so we can live in his kingdom by doing things on this earth, and we do not need to do that anymore!  All we need to do is have faith in Jesus Christ. That is the only thing we need to do to enter the kingdom.

In the old covenant with God, we had to have ceremonious sacrifices in order to be cleaned in the eyes of God. When Jesus came, He removed the need for that system. The work was all done by Jesus Christ, and now we no longer have to do it. So now we are just supposed to enjoy God's approval. You are perfect just the way you are. You do not need to be something different. Just be who you are.

Feature Presentation “Change Your Thinking And Change Your Life

After being the Podcast Answer-Man, for so long, Cliff Ravenscraft decided to push that all away, and completely do something totally different. Why? Because he knew he was made to encourage, educate and inspire people and he wanted to help people live their best life. If you have hope, you have influence. Are you living the life that you are created to live? Find a mentor to motivate you and hold you accountable for your actions and your outcome. You have to shift your identity and what you are saying to yourself. Even though there are other people that teach what you may do, only you can do it and reach the people who would identify with you.

Cliff suggests reading the ‘Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks. It teaches you to work within your zone of genius, where you can make the greatest impact. What will it take to get to do the things you love to do 80% of your day. What do you have to do to make that possible? Your language and what you tell yourself is so important. You have to make a decision to do what you want to do with no other possibilities or wavering.

Free the dream is for people who have a dream inside of them that says I wonder what life could be like if I do _____. It is for anyone who is on the fence and doesn't know what their dream is, and also for those who had the dream, left their day job, and are struggling to succeed because they feel sleazy trying to sell their product. Free the dream will help to ignite you and your dream and set it into motion. Go to Cliff's event!

Rank #13: The One Thing That Changes Everything

Podcast cover
Read more

What if I told you that one thing can change everything? In fact, the only thing that changes everything is one thing.  Find out how to make use of this one thing now. 

Click here to download or listen to this episode now.

Spiritual Foundations

Some people who are super religious about foul language, and through I think there is a better way to express yourself than using profanity, there are a few passages in the Bible that I feel are misrepresented using profanity. 

Ephesians 4: 29 says 

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.”

The dictionary says that “corrupt” means having or showing a willingness to act dishonestly for personal or financial gain. 

This sounds like it is talking about the morals of the person, not using foul language.

Edification means it is something that would be improving you and building up of the soul.

So this to me means that you are not to let anything that encourages people to be immoral or that demeans people, controls people, or steals their money. Tell them things that lifts them up and fills them. Say things that impart grace to people. Jesus said “They will know that you are my disciples, by your love for one another” This is something to think about.

Tip Of The Week

This is one of my new favorite apps, and it costs you nothing. Google Tasks integrates with G-mail, Google Drive and your Google Calendar so everything is in one place. It is sleek and easy to use.

Feature Presentation “The One Thing That Changes Everything”

Can one thing really revolutionize your life, double your income or simplify your life?

Even though I had so many distractions that could have derailed my year, the one thing kept me on track and get to this place where I have had my best year yet.  

There is always 1 thing that we want, and when we can identify it, everything else will change. You just need to decide it. 

 You need to decide to not make too many decisions. 

Gary Keller’s book, “The One Thing”, tells you how to find that one thing you need to do to change your life or business. Read his book and decide what is the one thing and focus on it.

Finding out what the one thing for you can be difficult. It is different for everyone and can take years of trial and error. 

Here is what you do.

Sit quietly and close your eyes and breathe deep and relax.  Take all the stress, guilt, pain you exhale out and leave it there. Just be in the moment where you are and ask “what is the one thing I am meant to be doing right now”.Pay attention to what you hear. The thing that comes into your head is the thing you should do.  It is going to be totally different than what you have been doing your whole life. You may need to change what you are doing now and start doing the thing that you feel most drawn to, even if it means changing your entire life. I know it is scary and can be so difficult because it involves other people, but you do need to do this. You will not be happy and have great success until you do.

SPIRITUAL FOUNDATIONS

How to Love Your Neighbor Well

In Matthew 22:36-40  Jesus says you must love your neighbor as yourself:

36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment.39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Do something to love yourself well and you will begin to love your neighbors well, too.
