007 How To Master Your Life With The Black Belt Project Dojo

Every Sunday is going to be weekly podcast time. This podcast will be available to all members and non members. It will also be available on itunes for download as well. In each episode, I'll try and spend about 20 to 30 minutes talking about some higher level concepts that relate to all the belts that I have identified as areas you want to master. Today, I wanted to talk about how to master your life with the Black Belt Project Dojo. If you have had an interest in this subject and have been around for a while, you've no doubt run across the gurus of the world promising life mastery. Their story usually begins with them down on their luck, deep in debt and future prospects dim. You see them when they have already achieved success. What's missing? The journey in between.

To me, this is where the real heart of life mastery is. It's not walking on hot coals or jumping off of a telephone pole or god forbid frying yourself in a sauna. That isn't to say that what they have to say is worthless. Something can be gleaned from everyone's story. But wouldn't you like to see what really happened every step of the way BEFORE they were successful? I know that I would. Seeing that process take shape would be extremely valuable - at least to me.

The problem is that life mastery is different for everyone. And the reason this is a problem is because books need to be put together with the masses in mind. Books that apply to everyone. But, when that's the case, it waters down the story and you and I get shortchanged in the process. The process is repeated with the next appointed guru and the same material is rehashed again and we are shortchanged yet again. I'm personally tired of the generic self help books that just cheer lead you on. Those books won't help you master life.

And this is why I created the Black Belt Project - to fill in the gaps between failure and success with specifics.

To reach this lofty goal, I have developed the idea of the online training center - or dojo - to help facilitate this process. This is the membership area that you can register for. Inside you'll find a beta version of the dojo. It's a floorplan of what I think it might look like in the future. Right now, it's a sketch. You'll have to bear with me while I build it and expect that it will be revised as my vision and process come together to develop the best way to help each and every member have what they need to succeed.

I hope that you enjoy this week's podcast. Let me know how I can help you.
