Learning From Successful People

Posted By: Randy GageFebruary 15, 2010

Today I have quite a platform, teaching people around the world about manifesting prosperity.  When I made $11,000 a year, people didn’t seem very interested in my thoughts on success.  Which was a good thing.  

I often speak for free at jails and high schools, particularly to “at risk” teens.  And invariably the result is the same…

They hear they have a speaker, and they sit back, bored, rolling their eyes, or locked up with legs and arms folded.  Then the introducer says I’m a multi-millionaire, or drive a Bentley and Vipers, or something similar.  All of a sudden, the energy picks up; the kids uncross, lean forward and look to me with anticipation about what I’m going to say.

Those kids wouldn’t even look twice at me if I drove a Camry.  And don’t think most adults are that different.  Which is as it should be.

You often hear me talk about the manifestations of my success.  That isn’t to brag or gloat, but to get the attention of a certain percentage of people that need that wake up call.

One of the things I tell people often at my prosperity seminars is, “Stop taking financial advice from broke people!”  So I think it’s important for people to know that I really am wealthy.

There are a lot of people going around to New Thought churches teaching prosperity workshops driving a beat up Ford Focus or Geo Metro.  They say things like, “Well I haven’t manifested prosperity in the material sense, but I’m so prosperous in health, relationships, etc.”  Sorry kids, that dog don’t hunt.

There are many elements to prosperity and money is certainly one of them.  When you evaluate advice from someone, it very important that you also evaluate the results they have attained practicing that advice.  The mentors you choose are really important.   That’s where we’ll pick up tomorrow.  In the meantime, please check in with your thoughts.

  1. RG,

    There are some that talk the talk and others that walk the talk.

    Most people just talk a good game! They don't play it or create the rules of the game.

    Happy Days

  2. Randy....so true my friend, there are far too many "experts" out there giving advice or teaching people how to do things that they were never capable of doing....keep up the good stuff!!!

    Stephen

  3. As right as you are Randy, there's an interesting inversion thing that goes on when you get to be really SUPER rich - you get to drive junky old cars again and people still listen to you. EG Bill Gates - a 12 year old Porshe 911; Warren Buffet just sold his 2001 Lincoln and now drives an Oldsmobile; Paul Allen - an '88 Porsche and an '88 Mazda Pickup; Ingvar Kamprad (Founder of IKEA) - a 1993 Volvo.

    When you start driving that Camry...then I'll listen!!! 🙂

  4. Right on Ian! When one's prosperity includes a lot of money, you get to choose what to drive. Being able to choose is an important part of prosperity!

  5. Yes that's true. Although a lot of times these kind of guys talk about the old beater they drive, but neglect to mention the $4 million of other automobiles in the garage!

    -RG

  6. I heard once don't talk about it be about it..... So True, your right Randy, people sit up and take notice when you pull up in a fancy car then your are about it..... At that time you have earned the right to talk about it;}

  7. So true Randy. I have always tried to secure mentors that were winners. I know how to loose and have been successful at that game. I don't want to re-invent the wheel, I want to sit at the feet of those that can guide me and point me to the quickest route to my goals. I am sick and tired of people that run around trying to be meek and lowly. I was made in the image of God and it appears to me that He thought big and so will I, being that I am His image.
    Randy keep up the great posts, eventually we will change the world!

  8. I agree with the idea that you should choose your mentors wisely.

    It sort of reminds me of a time when I was considering a financial adviser for the first time...my wife and I happened to know a guy that was in the business, so we figured we'd talk to him about it and see how we felt...we realized after we got home that I made more than twice as much money as he did by myself, drove a car that was probably worth $20k more than his, lived in a nicer home, and wasn't as far in debt as he was, etc. Needless to say, we looked elsewhere. Now, the point of the story is not that you couldn't have a financial adviser that wasn't in the same tax bracket as you...but if you were going to take $$ advice from someone, shouldn't they at least have made some better financial decisions than you at some point? Hee hee...

    Thanks Randy

  9. And the conclusion to this is that most people will LISTEN but not HEAR you.
    Let's be honest folks, in this society we live in, we work/trade value/etc for money!!! In order to get the THINGS we want. When a couple is worried about NO money, then that relationship sucks. When they are not worried about money, then the relationship is based upon THEM.
    Take financial advice from people who have financial independence like RG, do what is necessary to get that same financial independence and THEN you can debate about whether or not the other things in life matter more than money. Until then, MONEY is what matters.

  10. Randy

    I appreciate the line you left us with "The mentor's you choose are very important". We should all be aware of that, even if we can't meet with them face to face.

    We should still take every opportunity to study what they have to say
    through their books or tapes. And in this case even the message's they present to us in their blog post.

    Thanks for who you are

    Gary McElwain

  11. Randy, I love when you say, "that dog don't hunt". I always look to people like yourself that have proven themselves for inspiration and advice on getting to the next level. Someone contacted me a couple of years ago that wanted to become a business partner. He presented himself professionally and talked a big game, but when he started "bragging" about the $20,000 car he was about to purchase as if he was buying a Lamborghini, my image of him diminished greatly. Then when I went to verify his business contacts it was all false information. Needless to say, it didn't work out. Now I only look to do business with someone (or take advice from someone) who has proven themself, and yes, I look at the car they drive!

  12. Randy,
    I know you are a South Florida boy and I go to church at Unity of Delray Beach. One of the first things that impressed me about our Minister Nancy Norman, is that she drives a Lexus.

    A very good post.
    Thanks,
    Jim Story

  13. I enjoy the fact that you use what you have as a wake up call to those of us with the hunger to achieve greatness. It's like dangling the carrot in front of the mule.

    Someone very close to me used those words “Stop taking financial advice from broke people!” when he said that to me it was like a light bulb in my head went on. I never heard that before, but it made all the sence in the world. I was never really taught ANYTHING about money when I was growing up. My father sat me down once with all the bills and his paycheck and showed me where all the money goes... I would ask questions like how much does this house cost, how much does your car cost, how much do you make at your job etc..... and my mother would always say "It's none of your business" so I eventually just took any advice about money that I could gather. I had huge dreams of being a world famous fashion designer from the age of 9, but was always told I lived in a dream world and that I needed to wake up. I knew of the finer things in life, but never put a dollar sign on it. Naturally I have "expensive taste" so I have been told. You can put me in front of a group of things and ask me which one I like and I will almost always choose the most expensive... It must be a gift hehhehe!

    Anyway, I have stopped taking financial advice from broke people. Thanks to that one simple suggestion. And those words were reiterated from you. Now I have my top 5, the people I believe in, the people I would trust taking advice from. And Randy, you are on my list 😉

    And as for my wish to be a world famous fashion designer, it is a dream world I live in, it's my world, and I am the creater of this world I live in. My destiny is mine to determine. Just don't look at the car I drive untill then 😉

    Much Respect,

    Jamie 😉

  14. Randy,

    Thank you for inspiring people, and teaching them to really look at themselves and the world.

    Looking at yourself is scary, especially when you discover there is no excuse to live a mediocre life. The hardest thing is detaching yourself from well-meaning, yet lack centred people in your life. Not sure how to deal with my family. They are very set in their blue collar ways, and I have always been a creative type.

    Any advice? Not sure how to deal with.

  15. Randy,

    I believe wholeheartedly in the sayings:

    "Talk the walk, walk the talk"

    "You can help the poor by not being one of them!"

    "Money talks....bs walks!"

    I took a series of prosperity classes with a different teacher every weekend. One teacher was well liked by the church but her prosperity consciousness was weak to say the least. (How's this for telling the class how your past year wasn't good and that if she needed money, she had a credit line she could tap into...huh?)

    Needless to say, I walked away not being impressed at all. I see her from time to time and just speak. I can't truly take her seriously. It is so important to listen to people whose lives are truly working. Why listen to someone who drinks like a fish and smokes like a chimney for advice on obtaining optimal health? You get the picture!

    PS) Thanks for signing my book I received 2/15! 🙂

  16. You said it just as it is - I totally agree with you.

    When you evaluate advice from someone, it very important that you also evaluate the results they have attained practicing that advice. The mentors you choose are really important.

    As always, great stuff Randy - thanks!

  17. Who YOU choose to follow and have as a mentor is not just following a super star. The coaches that made the difference for Michael Jordan were not superstar performers themselves but knew how to mentor/coach. In sports especially the best coaches have not come from the superstar ranks but people who struggled with the 'how to' and are now able to translate it into practical matters for those who are capable of hearing it.

    When you are ready the mentor will appear. If you are not ready, no one will be able to make a difference with you. It comes back to the person in the mirror.

  18. “Stop taking financial advice from broke people!”

    I think I both agree & disagree with this.

    "There are many elements to prosperity and money is certainly one of them. When you evaluate advice from someone, it very important that you also evaluate the results they have attained practicing that advice. "

    Again, I both agree & disagree about evaluating their advice based on the results they have attained practicing that advice.
    I agree that if someone is in debt, living paycheck to paycheck, or not successful we need to evaluate the advice from them and look at their results.
    If they are making positive changes, say starting a new network marketing business, I think that even though their past wasn't successful they could be on the right path. They may not have the results yet but they could be headed for success. The way we reach prosperity is by helping others reach prosperity. So by sharing the network marketing opportunity they are helping others. We could learn more about advise...in this example, the network marketing company, industry, team members, etc., to help us evaluate the advice.

    "You can have everything you want in life, if you can just help enough others get what they want."- Zig Ziglar

    Our own prosperity consciousness will help us recognize good and bad advice or opportunities. "The best thing you can do for the poor, starving and downtrodden, is to not be one of them." Randy Gage

    "The mentors you choose are really important. "

    I agree with this. I have chosen good and bad mentors in the past. Just because they have the title that you want to achieve doesn't make them a good mentor. I think we need to learn more about them and get to know them better to make sure they are the right mentor.

  19. Now wait a minute.

    So successful equals rich, and someone else knows just what that means for you?

    I don't think so. I think everyone is their own best teacher on a deeper level.

    Some food for thought.

  20. Randy,

    Once again a very good and thought provoking idea. I have been living with that advice. Over the last 20 years have traded up and once again will be trading up to the next level. As life goes, you get out of it what you put in it. So if you live and think broke, take advice from broke people you will always be broke. Even if those people are you family. For me what I did, was listen with one ear, then did what I needed to do to transform my life to what it is today.

    Bek

  21. One of the problems I had with mentors was my own ego. Sometimes I thought what I was doing was best, but if it really was, I would have been doing better than my mentor. I had to be willing to change and change my thinking. I had to let go of listening to my ego.

    On the other hand, I also went against my better judgment once and listened to a mentor when I should not have listened to them or followed them.

    The answer may be learning to listen to your inner voice and developing prosperity consciousness so you know when something is a good idea or not. And being willing to look inside yourself and change the things that are not working.

  22. You see contradictions all of the time that just make you shake your head.

    I see network marketers in nutrition companies and when there's a break at the company training event, they're out smoking, which is not a congruent message.

  23. WOW.... i read this post after i posted in the newer post...

    HOLLY S**T on a SHINGLE..... have you gone off the deep end?

    for real... no one should listen if you DON'T drive a BENTLEY???

    how about this randy... no one should listen to you if your rants and blogs are full of STUPID S**T? makes sense to me...

    or how about this... you are the GURU of MLM right? self proclaimed no doubt.... but maybe we should not listen to you until you earn your ferarri?

    i mean as you put it a true measure of a person is their wallet and their accomplishments right?

    and of course while we're talking about it... i am sure you are by far wealthier then i am, so dont listen to me... and of course the late Nicoli Tesla, who had his ideas and inventions stolen from him by the so called wealthy famous inventors of his time... only to die penniless with nothing but crackers and water in his empty apartment....

    and by all means you should probably NOT listen to the words of another one of the most intelligent men to ever have lived when he said, "the only life worth living is a life spent in the service of others"

    or the words of John Grinder, or Dr Kevin Hogan, or Donald Moine, or Kenneth Lloyd, or russel brunson, or jo han mok, or joe vitale, ... or... too many to name here... as i am sure none of the above mentioned people make over $30,000,000 a year, dont drive a bentley, and dont live on two continents.....

    you are living proof you can preach the laws of success, know them, talk about them write books about them and NOT live them and still become monumentally wealthy... for no other reason other than the fact that you are totally convinced that you deserve it....

    remember in the day when you used to just crumple up and throw away your product telling your audience it didnt matter what the product was? and then later you corrected that statement and stopped doing it?

    this blog post and others like it are no different than throwing away your product way back when. except now you are throwing away values, and influencing 100s of thousands of people world wide, some of which dont know any better and believe in you and your words at face value.

    try to exercise a little restraint and responsibility?

    randy you are good, and much better than many out there in the industry, but you are by far not the best, just one of the wealthiest.

  24. Yes, picking one's mentors is important. I pick people who have already accomplished what I want to accomplish.

    In network marketing, a mentor can be different from a sponsor. If one's sponsor has yet to manifest large success, it's one's right as an adult to seek out other advice. Notice I am NOT saying one should switch sponsors.

    And when evaluating a company, I look past the person in front of me and evaluate the SYSTEM and PHILOSOPHY they are proposing.

    Some rich people I know dress simply and drive modest cars (maybe a Mercedes). They have immense financial means and choose not to display that fact to the general public.

    Also beware the people who dress and drive like millionaires but have nothing in the bank and the credit cards are maxed out. Or they lie about their promotion level/number of distributors/etc. Some people dress and drive fancy because they made millions in other professions but cannot create a thriving MLM business because they lack the skills to teach and guide their distributors. Time always reveals the whole situation.

    I guess it boils down to: does the mentor seem happy and have the freedom to do what she/he wants with life? That signals overall prosperity (health, friends, money, etc). And what is the source(s) of income? If it is a passive or residual style they have created or are developing, then I'm all ears.

  25. I was just thinking earlier today -- "if you want to become a millionaire then you've got to ask a millionaire how he became one"; "if you want to be successful in a certain field, ask someone who is successful in that field".

    So do I want to be like Randy Gage -- or Eric Worre?

    Such a dilemma.

      or how about this... you are the GURU of MLM right? self proclaimed no doubt.... but maybe we should not listen to you until you earn your ferarri?

      i mean as you put it a true measure of a person is their wallet and their accomplishments right?

      and of course while we're talking about it... i am sure you are by far wealthier then i am, so dont listen to me... and of course the late Nicoli Tesla, who had his ideas and inventions stolen from him by the so called wealthy famous inventors of his time... only to die penniless with nothing but crackers and water in his empty apartment....

      and by all means you should probably NOT listen to the words of another one of the most intelligent men to ever have lived when he said, "the only life worth living is a life spent in the service of others"

      or the words of John Grinder, or Dr Kevin Hogan, or Donald Moine, or Kenneth Lloyd, or russel brunson, or jo han mok, or joe vitale, ... or... too many to name here... as i am sure none of the above mentioned people make over $30,000,000 a year, dont drive a bentley, and dont live on two continents.....

      you are living proof you can preach the laws of success, know them, talk about them write books about them and NOT live them and still become monumentally wealthy... for no other reason other than the fact that you are totally convinced that you deserve it....

      remember in the day when you used to just crumple up and throw away your product telling your audience it didnt matter what the product was? and then later you corrected that statement and stopped doing it?

      this blog post and others like it are no different than throwing away your product way back when. except now you are throwing away values, and influencing 100s of thousands of people world wide, some of which dont know any better and believe in you and your words at face value.

      try to exercise a little restraint and responsibility?

      randy you are good, and much better than many out there in the industry, but you are by far not the best, just one of the wealthiest.

    24. Yes, picking one's mentors is important. I pick people who have already accomplished what I want to accomplish.

      In network marketing, a mentor can be different from a sponsor. If one's sponsor has yet to manifest large success, it's one's right as an adult to seek out other advice. Notice I am NOT saying one should switch sponsors.

      And when evaluating a company, I look past the person in front of me and evaluate the SYSTEM and PHILOSOPHY they are proposing.

      Some rich people I know dress simply and drive modest cars (maybe a Mercedes). They have immense financial means and choose not to display that fact to the general public.

      Also beware the people who dress and drive like millionaires but have nothing in the bank and the credit cards are maxed out. Or they lie about their promotion level/number of distributors/etc. Some people dress and drive fancy because they made millions in other professions but cannot create a thriving MLM business because they lack the skills to teach and guide their distributors. Time always reveals the whole situation.

      I guess it boils down to: does the mentor seem happy and have the freedom to do what she/he wants with life? That signals overall prosperity (health, friends, money, etc). And what is the source(s) of income? If it is a passive or residual style they have created or are developing, then I'm all ears.

    25. I was just thinking earlier today -- "if you want to become a millionaire then you've got to ask a millionaire how he became one"; "if you want to be successful in a certain field, ask someone who is successful in that field".

      So do I want to be like Randy Gage -- or Eric Worre?

      Such a dilemma.
