If You Are Ready to Make 2017 The Best Year of Your Life, This Might Be the Most Important Blog You’ll Read This Year.
I’m about to share the blueprint for 5 key personal growth concepts you must master to get unstuck and “Smash Your 2017," creating lasting change in the New Year.
These tools will guarantee massive progress in your career, relationships, health, and overall happiness. They’re the keys to once and for all escape the disappointment that comes from being in the 93% whose New Year’s goals slip away in a matter of days or weeks.
How am I certain these skills create lasting transformation? Because they are the 5 things that helped me turn my life around in 2012.
If you have been with me awhile, you know my story. In 2012, I was in a battling a crippling depression after a devastating breakup. I felt trapped in a job where I was successful, but also bored and unchallenged. I was 37 lbs. overweight and battling a food addiction. To top it off, my life lacked deep friendships and I didn’t know how to open up to people as I spiraled further into rock bottom.
Believe it or not, that experience was the biggest gift I’ve ever been given. It forced me to finally make a new decision. Either I could continue to live my life the way I always had and continue to get the same results.
Or I could take courageous action, leave my comfort zone, and walk a new path.
These tools I’m going to share with you were the foundation from which I designed a completely different life.
Five years after my world seemingly came crashing down, I’ve lost the weight and kept it off, I’ve found my life’s purpose, left the career that no longer served me, found an amazing relationship, and started my dream business doing work that makes a difference in the world.
In just over a year, I’ve helped people in 5 countries find, live, and thrive in their life’s purpose. My writing on self-development has been featured alongside thought leaders like Deepak Chopra at The Huffington Post. I am featured as a personal growth expert on radio stations across the US.
And perhaps more importantly, I found the freedom, joy, and fulfillment that comes from living life on my terms.
Taking the knowledge I gained by working with world class mentors like Gabrielle Bernstein and Mastin Kipp, combined with my own experiences, I uncovered these 5 core components of transformation that are essential to mastering the game of life:
1) Congruence: If your intention for your life is not aligned with your beliefs, then nothing else I will share in this email will matter.
If your goal is to make a million dollars, but you believe that your family and friends will judge you and think you’re “better than them,” you are going to fail. If you want to attract a loving, passionate relationship, but believe on some level that you’re unlovable because of past failed romances, you will not find the right partner. If you want to share your story and inspire millions of people, but feel unworthy of being heard, you will always play small.
When your vision and beliefs are out of alignment, it means there is an old cobweb belief in your subconscious that is holding you back. The lack of congruence is keeping you from taking determined action to design the life you want and deserve.
One of my clients is an aspiring writer. Before working together, he struggled to get momentum writing his manuscript. In one session, we got to the cause of his sabotaging belief that his story isn’t worthy to be shared.
It was rooted in a seemingly unimportant moment from second grade.
At age 8, he was punished by a teacher after bringing in a video of the old, cartoon movie, “The Great Mouse Detective” for his class, who had been studying Sherlock Holmes. It was his favorite movie and he wanted badly to share it with his classmates.
After being unable to convince his teacher to show the movie, he went to a different teacher, who agreed to let the class watch it. Persistence pays off, right?
Except the first teacher was angry that the boy went behind her back after she said no. Not only did she berate the kid, she called his parents in for a conference to discuss his disrespect. After being shamed by his teacher for a rather harmless request, my client made the decision at 8-years-old that sharing his favorite stories with the world would just cause pain and he should keep them to himself.
As you can imagine, that belief makes it tough for a writer to be successful.
I know what you’re thinking. It seems like such a small, insignificant memory. From an adult perspective, yes. But an 8-year old who is being punished will make a survival decision that could affect the trajectory of their life.
Once my client understood how this incident affected him, we could take that incident and give it a more empowering meaning.
“When one person says no, I always find a way to share my favorite stories with others”
Which belief do you think will give him more confidence as he shops his book to publishers?
I’m happy to say this client is back to writing on a daily basis and getting his great work out into the world.
2) Self-Discipline- If you want to live an extraordinary life, it requires executing daily rituals that prime you for success.
I’m not talking about some Pagan worship ceremony here. This is about committing to daily acts of self-love. As Louise Hay says, “How you start your day is how you live your day. How you live your day is how you live your life.”
To get to the next level, we must start our day in a more intentional manner than hitting the snooze button and jumping right into email and social media.
I work with clients to create a custom plan to nurture the mind, body, and spirit each morning. When we make ourselves a priority, we show up in the world with more energy and vitality. We have a full cup from which we can give to others… which brings us to the third point.
3) Service- Want to earn more money? Figure out what skill of yours provides the most value to others and then seek out people who need your help. Want to build a successful business? Create more value for your customers than anyone else. Want to leave a lasting impact on the world? Give of yourself.
Whether it’s passing on a piece of wisdom or simply just giving your time, the ultimate levels of fulfillment happen when you realize that life is not about getting. It’s about giving.
Notice that I put service to others AFTER self-love. Most of us put everyone else’s needs before our own. We are addicted to pleasing others, often at the expense of our dreams.
Doing this might seem selfless, but it has negative consequences. You will find yourself emotionally depleted and feeling resentful of the time you give to those around you. Worse yet, you will find yourself moving farther away from your goals instead of closer.
You can’t give to the world what you do not have. Thus, making time for you is the fuel that helps you show up for yourself, and ultimately show up bigger for the people you love.
4) Courage- Many personal growth “experts” talk at length about how we must “live fearlessly.”
I say… Good luck with that. Let me know how it works out.
Fear is a physiological response that is embedded into 2 million years of DNA. It’s been here long before us and will be here long after we are gone. Our brain simply has not evolved beyond fight or flight.
However, it’s not a reason to give up on your dreams.
You were scared the first day your parents dropped you off at school. You were scared before your first kiss. You felt fear before you started that first job after college.
Yet, all those experiences were vital to your growth.
The same holds true for what scares you today.
If we accept fear isn’t going away, we release ourselves from the expectation of being fearless, and step into being courageous. This is where progress is made.
5) Finding an Expert Coach or Mentor- Let’s be real. If you knew how to uncover those subconscious, cobweb beliefs that hold you back, you would have already let them go.
If you knew how to take charge of your schedule and make time for your dreams, you would have already done it.
If you knew how to conquer your fears and take bold action, you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
If you want to work towards a new goal to up-level your life in 2017, you need the help of a mentor who has already walked the path and can see your blind spots.
In my life, finding that level of expert mentorship was a game changer, but also EXPENSIVE. Attending an immersive, weeklong, personal development seminar, between tuition, travel, and hotel, can run upwards of $7500. That’s just for one week of support.
Most 8-week online courses will cost around $2000, and there’s no interaction. The teacher creates content and the students consume it.
But if you have a question….
Or you have a setback at 5pm on a Wednesday…
There is no personal connection with the instructor… unless you pay thousands of additional dollars for their time.
And it’s that personal connection, the ability to ask questions when your self-sabotage patterns come up that makes all the difference between success and floundering in indecision and inaction.
That’s why I’m excited to offer a personal mentorship to a very limited number of highly motivated people who are ready for, and committed to having a breakthrough.

Over the last year, as I’ve coached my private clients, I’ve witnessed how quickly people make massive progress when I share with them the advanced tools and knowledge that I have included in the “Smash Your 2017” program (Enroll HERE)
Ashley came to me with crippling anxiety. Before we worked together, she woke up in the morning nauseous and it would literally continue all day, every day. These anxiety attacks were the response to an assault she was victim to a year earlier. The incident continued to haunt her every day. Within two sessions, we got her aligned, connected to herself, and taught her specific exercises to release the anxiety. The nausea completely disappeared after two sessions. Within months, she was promoted at work and earned a big pay raise. Perhaps best of all, she feels whole and happy again.
When Kate and I started working together, she felt hopeless about her life. Stuck in an office job that she hated, basic self-care acts like showering had become a challenge for her. We immediately went to work and put some better daily rituals in place to help her take care of herself. We got clear about her real dream of becoming a cosmetologist, uncovered the beliefs that were holding her back, and implemented strategies to overcome her fear of failure. Today, Kate has left the job she hated. She is in cosmetology school, singing in a band, and has found an awesome relationship. She might be the happiest person I know.
Micki came to me feeling broken, unable to move forward from the passing of her parents a year earlier. She had lost her sense of self-confidence and doubted her intuition. She felt powerless. After three months of working together, we got her intentions and beliefs in alignment. She started to forgive the people who had hurt her in the past. She found forgiveness for herself. She took action towards her physical health goals and lost 22 lbs. She’s now living open-heartedly, following her intuition, and choosing courage over fear in every moment.
The truth is 99% of the population does not have the tools or support to make this kind of meaningful change.
You deserve to be in the other 1%.

During this 8-week New Year’s jumpstart, you and I will work together one-on-one. All sessions are conducted via Facetime, Skype, or Facebook messenger. I want to see you and I want you to see me so we can build a partnership that creates lasting results you didn’t know were possible.
There are no recorded modules in this training. This is a personal, customized transformational experience tailored to your needs.
If you need to set better boundaries with your friends and family so you can create time to nurture your dreams, I will show you how.
If you’ve made a decision that achieving goals is only for the “risk-takers,” I will help you find the courage you forgot you had.
If you need someone to help you get out of the victim loop so you can take control of your life and live in the accountability loop, I’m going to be right there to support you.
And because I have some speaking engagements and other big business plans on tap for the first quarter of 2017, I do not want to overextend myself. I want to make sure that the students I work with are getting 110% of my focused attention so we can create maximum results.
So I’m only offering this opportunity to 8 clients. That’s it. (Reserve your spot)
So now it’s on to the big question.
What is the investment?
The typical investment level for 8-weeks of personal coaching with me is $1300.
I think it’s fair to say that given most 8-week digital courses on the market, with little to no personal interaction with the coach, are going in the range of $2000, I could feel more than comfortable asking you to invest at a higher level. This is a personal, customized experience. Not a “class in a box.”
Now let me ask you, if all this program did for you was help you stop floundering in indecision and got you taking action towards your life’s biggest vision, would $1300 be worth it to you?
Picture waking up each morning EXCITED about the challenges ahead. What if you looked in the mirror, proud of the strides you were making and knowing that you were moving closer each day towards the life of your dreams. Would $1300 be worth it to you?
Imagine feeling the fear that comes with leaving your comfort zone, but having the newfound confidence and swagger to take courageous action anyway. Would $1300 be a good investment?
The good news is that you won’t even have to spend $1300 for this experience.
My original plan was to wait until Thanksgiving and market this program online at a Black Friday 20% discount.
But because you have been here with me, reading and engaging with these training emails every week, I want to make this an absolute no-brainer for you.

This is your chance to finally breakthrough and “Smash Your 2017.” You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by saying yes, so click here to get started.
Now some of you might be thinking, “Dan, if this is such a great program, why are you offering over $1800 of training for less than half the price?”
Well that’s a great question and the answer is because I have a bigger why.
First, I want to get 8 new case studies and testimonials. I might launch this program next winter as a pre-recorded digital course and I want social proof this training creates massive results.
Secondly, I know when you get results from working with me, you will be inspired to tell your friends. I also believe that once you experience the benefits my coaching provides, you will be more likely to buy other products of mine in the future.
If that’s the case, we’re both getting a good deal in the long run.
Once again, there are only 8 spots available for this program. On Thanksgiving night, the price will go up and any unclaimed spots will be advertised through social media and get snatched up quickly.
What will your life look like one-year from today if you are in the same place that you are now? What will it feel like knowing you let another 52 weeks pass you by, procrastinating on achieving the career, the body, or the relationship that you want?
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting to get different results. Now is the time for you to take new action. Let me show you how.
If you have any questions at all about this coaching program, respond to this email and I will set up a time to call you and personally answer any questions that you have.
And if you are happy with your path in life, but have a friend or family member who could benefit from this incredible, zero-risk opportunity, please forward this email to them.
