The MFCEO Project

Beer. Burt Reynolds. Knowing when to serve others & when to stand up for yourself. What my old bulldog Oscar taught me about life. How Vaughn the Impaler's yellow lab saved his little girl. Not gonna lie...we hit a lot of topics in today's episode, but all of them will make you smile, laugh, and help you become a better person...which is the whole point of the Sunday Sermon.

The #1 Most Effective Motivator That People Never Use, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO262
The MFCEO Project

The so-called "gurus" tell you to set attainable goals, but I don't agree with that. I think you should set huge, unrealistic goals. Because if you fall short of those goals, it's massively disappointing. Those unrealized expectations hurt & that's a good thing, because pain teaches. In fact, pain does more than teach. If we use it, it can drive us to success like nothing else can. 

SUNDAY SERMON: How to Profit From Your Past, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO261
The MFCEO Project

It seems like everyday I get somebody emailing me or messaging me complaining or beating themselves up about something they said or did in the past. Part of me gets that, but most of me doesn't. Complaining about the past is illogical. Beating yourself up about your past is pointless. Instead, you should be using your past to benefit your present & your future. How do the happiest, most satisfied people do that? That’s what we talk about in today’s Sunday Sermon.

The #1 Thing You're Doing That Is Sabotaging Your Success, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO260
The MFCEO Project

If it's true that everyone has the potential to be successful, why aren't the majority of people successful? It's not a matter of education or intelligence or natural giftedness. It's a matter of the will. Successful people are willing to do something that most people are not. They are willing to look bad...really bad...on their way to getting good at something & becoming someone who is truly great. Unsuccessful people aren't like this. The minute they look or feel stupid...they quit.

ASK THE MFCEO: Another Q&A Episode, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO259
The MFCEO Project

People always have lots of questions for me...about business, self-development, or whatever. So we decided to do another Q&A episode. We cover a wide range of topics in this episode, from qualities to look for in a hire & the best "techniques" of sales to how I've leveraged failures & why I'm not crazy about the question "What's your why?" This is super practical stuff, so listen & learn.

SUNDAY SERMON: Desire, Dissatisfaction, and Wrestling with Restlessness, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO258
The MFCEO Project

I’m finding it common to run into people who think they have found their purpose in life, but are still struggling with dissatisfaction on a daily basis. Restlessness is actually part of what it means to be a human being living in the real world. If you feel empty no matter how much you succeed, listen closely to today's episode. Vaughn, Tyler & myself talk about reasons for restlessness & dissatisfaction & what to do about it. If this is something you struggle with, just know this: YOU'RE NORMAL.

CLIMB THE PYRAMID: The Plan for Powering Through to the Top, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO257
The MFCEO Project

What's the #1 key to success? People want to act like it's mysterious. Gurus who don't know sh!t want to complicate it & make the answer sexier than it really is. The fact is, the secret is simple: DON'T QUIT. The people who succeed in life...the people who advance up the pyramid of success..are people of endurance. They are patient, power through pain after pain, & adjust & adapt & improve themselves...until they reach the top.

SUNDAY SERMON: The Common Decency That Makes You An Uncommon Dominator, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO256
The MFCEO Project

Whatever ever happened to common decency? There are thing that everybody used to know & to treat one another, how to talk to one another, how to be a good person..that hardly anyone knows & does anymore. That's the bad news. The good news is that if YOU know & do these things, you'll be rare. You'll stand out. Having good manners & being a decent person will help you dominate. 

The Upside of Rock Bottom, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO255
The MFCEO Project

Have you ever hit rock bottom? Are you hitting rock bottom now? I get it. I've been business & in life. Sometimes it's been my fault. Sometimes it hasn't. Well, listen...I can't explain this, but I've experienced it & I can tell you it's true: there's something really good about hitting rock bottom. In this episode, I give you three reasons why & urge you to wake up, rise up again, & dominate.

PASSION AND PURPOSE: What The "Gurus" Won't Tell You, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO254
The MFCEO Project

There's a ton of misinformation & flat-out lies out there about how to live with purpose & passion. The average "guru" on the internet misleads people into thinking they're weird because they struggle with doubt, uncertainty & dissatisfaction. In this episode, I share the real truth about purpose & passion, walking you through questions to ask yourself, expectations to adjust, & practical habits to develop that will help you operate more confidently & intentionally in every area of your life.

SUNDAY SERMON: What's Wrong With the World Today?, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO253
The MFCEO Project

What's wrong with the world today? Like you, I get on the internet & social media & think, "WTF?" literally seems like society has become an insane asylum & the lunatics are running the place. Everybody is angry & resentful at everybody else. Well I heard a great story that provides a two word answer for what's wrong with the world. If we take that answer seriously, we'll all go a long way in fixing society...and our own lives.

If You're Not Doing What You Can, You'll Never Do What You Want, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO252
The MFCEO Project

Everybody has dreams for their future. But not everybody understands that what you hope to do on a much higher level later, you can begin to do right now. The guy who wants to someday speak to millions can give a talk to his 7 employees today. The girl who wants to perform on stage in Nashville someday can sing at a local country bar this weekend.  Bottom line: when it comes to your dreams, if you're not doing what you can do now, you'll never do what you want to do later. 

SUNDAY SERMON: How to Become Someone People Would Die For, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO251
The MFCEO Project

How do you become someone people would die for? In the age of social media, we talk about having "friends." But that term has become cheap. We think that if someone follows our page or likes our post, we're "friends." Not hardly. Real friends are a positive force in your life, energizing, truthful, supportive, and fiercely loyal. We all need real friendships because we can't do life by ourselves or succeed on our own. But if good friendships are what we want, a good friend is what we need to become.

Two Things You Can Do Right Now To Be Happy, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO250
The MFCEO Project

Most people talk about happiness as if it's this mystical, mysterious force that you have no control over. That is 1000 percent false. Like so many other things in this world, happiness is something you have to earn. It is the result of actions you take. In this episode, I drop two practical things you need to DO...two practical things everybody CAN earn the right to be happy.

ROCK STAR INFLUENCE: A Success Story ft. Jay Irving, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO249
The MFCEO Project

You can learn a lot about success & entrepreneurship from a veteran of the music industry who has worked with superstars from Lady Gaga to Nelly. My buddy Jay Irving is an influential executive, investor, & leader in talent management. He’s also an entrepreneur to the core & a guy committed to excellence. In this episode, he shares his story & we riff about everything from establishing credibility & authority in your industry to the leadership skills it takes to manage people who are exceptionally talented.

Don't Discount Yourself, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO248
The MFCEO Project

"Know your worth." That's a phrase I can't stand, because most of the time, people talk about how "worthy" they are when they haven't done anything to justify that claim. But at the other end of the spectrum are people who have a lot to offer, but they don't realize it & take advantage of it. You need to resist the temptation to "discount" yourself in business & life & "price" yourself more fairly & generously. Because if you do bring something worthwhile to the world, you deserve to benefit from that. 

How Perfectionism Sabotages Your Success, with Andy Frisella - MFCE0247
The MFCEO Project

I've quoted Lombardi on the podcast before: "chase perfection."  Problem is, most people emphasize the second word when the focus is really on the first. Perfection is an impossibility. We're supposed to chase it, not expect it. That's sounds counter-intuitive to a commitment to excellence, but it's not. In fact...perfectionism actually undermines excellence. In this episode, I tell you how & describe a better way of thinking & operating: one that embraces the chaotic process that produces success.

Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven, But Nobody Wants to Die, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO246
The MFCEO Project

Most people who want to be millionaires don't see the connection between today & someday. Young kids don't think that killing it at their job at Burger King has anything to do with making millions in the future. Adults don't think how they cut their grass or wipe their @ss has anything to do with achieving their "dream life." The people who *actually* become wealthy are different. They recognize the link between now & later & they make every effort & sacrifice RIGHT NOW. They die to live the good life!

The Secrets of Successful Social Media Advertising, ft. Billy Gene Is Marketing, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO245
The MFCEO Project

There are a lot of eyeballs on the internet, 24/7, so if you're an entrepreneur & you're not capturing their attention, you're leaving a lot of income on the table. In spite of the huge opportunity the internet offers, for low-cost marketing & high volume sales, most people don't have any idea how to create ads that really convert. My buddy Billy Gene is an exception to the rule. A huge exception. In this episode, he shares his valuable knowledge & experience to help you transform your social media marketing status from "loser" to lucrative.
