How goes those new year’s resolutions? I personally do not make resolutions as my goals are being revised a couple times per year as priorities change and my goals for 2019 were set this past November. If you don’t have goals… well my mentor Brian Tracy says “Goals are everything, everything else is commentary.”
One of my 2019 goals was to compete in one of my first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments on Jan 5th. The decision was made to compete only 3.5 weeks in advance which was great – less time to stress about the competition. I changed my schedule with my wife’s support and this definitely one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
Preparing to fight other men is nerve wracking. I have to eat properly during the holidays, I had a total of three glasses of wine in December, made the time to train and, lucky me, I caught a cold a week before the event and couldn’t practice.
The day of the event, I lost my first match quite badly. I haven’t had the strength to watch the recording 🎥but I will eventually to show my coaches so they can tell me where I went wrong so I can learn from my mistakes. I was also injured in the process, my rib separated, so that was painful and I was scared but the quick turnaround between my early matches allowed my adrenaline 💉 to keep me in the fight.
This video is of my second and final match of the day. I forfeited the rest due to injury. I sped up the boring parts and my embarrassingly bad pulling of guard.

Definitely one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. My first 🇧🇷Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament 🤼♂️. Preparing to fight other grown men is nerve wracking. I have to eat🍽🍴🥗 properly during the holidays, make time to train 🏋️♀️, I caught a 🥶😷 cold a week out so couldn’t practice. . 🤦♂️I lost my first match quite badly, I haven’t had the strength to watch the recording 🎥but I will eventually to show my coaches where I went wrong to learn from my ❌ mistakes ❌. I was also injured in the process so that stings but the quick turnaround between my early matches allowed my adrenaline 💉 to keep me in the fight. . 📽This video is of my second and final match of the day. I forfeited the rest due to injury. I sped up the boring parts and my embarrassingly bad pulling of guard 🤣 . 🤙What am I doing? I am pushing my limits. Entrepreneurs look to push themselves in areas outside of just business. I got steamrolled in my first match, I had a rough day and that is much worse than anything I’ll face at work this week or this month. As I tell my team, #nopressurenodiamonds 💎 . 🙏I want to thank my team mates and trainers and coaches 🦜 for getting me to through this event. This won’t be my last competition and look forward to healing and fixing the holes in my game. #nevergiveup
Am I insane for doing this? Well my coach is doing a half iron man and my old friend Quentin Desousa lost over 100 lbs in 2018 and is running a half marathon this year. One of my Jiu Jitsu coaches at the age of 46 is competing at the world championships in Las Vegas again this year.
Successful people push their limits in areas outside of just business. I got steamrolled in my first match, I got hurt and submitted, but fought my next match 15 mins later. It was a rough day and in business, shit happens just the same. Just know you can overcome your challenges, it’s been done before and there is no reason you can not do the same. As I tell my team and clients, no pressure no diamonds 💎.
I want to thank my teammates and trainers and coaches for getting me to through this event. This won’t be my last competition and look forward to healing and fixing the holes in my game. You only truly lose if you give up and I hate losing more than I like winning.
Speaking of successful people, at the time of this posting, I have over 150 of the most successful real estate investors from our community RSVP to my networking event. The event takes place on January 23rd, which sold out in less than 80hours, and the waitlist now stands at 44. This is the biggest room of successful investors I’ve ever put together, so if you have big plans for 2019, you will want to be at the next meeting.
Our keynote speakers on Jan 23rd are currently building two houses from the ground up on a lot they already own via another investment property and had this lot severed. In simple terms, the land was free, so the returns are quite significant, especially the cash flow once the basements are legally suited.
Two houses >> four units, brand new.
This is an ideal strategy for investors new to developing and building, and we are very lucky to have Charles Wah, Steve Ford, and Andy Tran to share how they are doing it.
From Jason Gaignard, only 3% of the population are entrepreneurs, only 4% of those entrepreneurs have 7 figure businesses. They are rare. I’m one of the many that will be there Jan 23rd in Mississauga, Ontario. To get on the wait-list, please visit www.infinitywealth.ca/join

Craig Ballantyne is the first influencer I followed back in early 2000’s before influencer was a term to describe someone with a significant following.
I knew Craig from his highly successful online fitness training program. Craig’s clients would sign up online to learn how to exercise and diet to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. Craig also taught his business and marketing methods and produced many other successful online fitness entrepreneurs. He is the real deal.
Fast forward to 2019 and Craig is still crushing it. Two personal friends of mine are enjoying his personal coaching and I’m enjoying Craig’s Perfect Day Formula as seen below. Here’s the link if you want to check it out: https://perfectdayformula.com/

I interviewed the OG @realcraigballantyne for the podcast about the formula to a perfect morning, perfect day and perfect week so I’m crazy amped to dig into the Perfect Day Formula kit. Just look at all this stuff! Day planner, gratitude journal, work life balance assessment booklet, goal setting booklet. Holy crap this kit is complete!! . Productivity #10X is on its way!!! . 🙏🙏🙏 Craig!! @realcraigballantyne . Look out 2019, you’ve been warned, prepare for crushnihilation!! . #perfectday #perfectdayformula
Craig is the author of the Perfect Day Formula and his brand new book “Unstoppable”. He’s been viewed on YouTube over 7 million times. Craig is one of the original gangsters, an OG of online direct marketing, and you can tell he’s been successful and around a long time when you read all the folks who wrote forewords for “Perfect Day Formula” – pretty much the who’s who of the entrepreneurship and marketing educators.
He’s also a podcaster at www.earlytorise.com
I ask Craig how to create a perfect morning, perfect day, perfect week, and perfect life. I think that’s something we all want.
I thought it was also pretty cool how we discussed Craig’s biggest fear of regret and what he’s doing to make sure his regret does not become reality.
Craig also shares how he built and organic following of almost 33,000 on Instagram with video.
This is an early favourite episode of mine for 2019.
