In this dynamic interview on my SiriusXM radio show, Gerhard shares:

  • Your success in life and in business always starts with your thinking. Mindset shapes skill set!
  • There are 3 ways your mindset is developed:
  1. Implanted (from your parents),
  2. Imprinted (people you meet who empower you)
  3. Inspired (divine inspiration that is the magic within)
  • Work on your thinking – we have 60,000 thoughts per day and 80% are negative, unless you purposely fill up with positive inputs.
  • Be careful what you watch and listen to. It impacts your thinking. Make a point to read and listen to positive information daily.
  • Decide to be mindful, rather than have a mind full of negative thinking and negative information!
  • Your self-talk impacts your actions. If you tell yourself you can’t or tell yourself you can, you will listen and act accordingly! So, speak good to yourself.
  • Your thoughts are seeds. Decide to water the seeds and stop watering the weeds.
  • Find your why! The bigger your why, the bigger you’ll try!
  • Decide what you want, and why you want it!  Once you figure out “your why,” and commit to “your try,” you will figure out “your how,” which will bring you to your wealth quicker!
