(bold, upbeat music) – So how to think like an
unconventional millionaire. Question number one, why
is thinking important? Who can tell me? Why is thinking important? – [Man In Audience] Mindset
is 80% of it, 20% mechanics. – Okay, 80% mindset, 20% mechanics, yes. – [Man In Audience] Business
is an intellectual sport. – Business intellectual sport, yes. – [Man In Audience] It’s
where your emotions come from. – It’s where– – [Man In Audience]
Your emotions come from. – Where your emotions comes from, yes. If this is first time you’re joining us, what I always do, I’m highly interactive, I hate, I fucking hate lecture. Okay, when I was going to school, when the professor was lecturing
me, I was falling asleep. I don’t wanna do that, so
you can see the mic there. Any time you have a question,
any time you have a what? – [Audience] Question. – Stop me, go to the mic, I’ll answer it, highly interactive. We’re gonna dive quite deep this evening. I’ve been wanting to do
this talk, do this piece, this training, for some time now, probably six, seven months. I’ve been thinking about
it, thinking about it, and I wasn’t sure the right timing. I think, you know, this
month is a good time, but I think what I’m about to share with you might contradict some of your beliefs. Some of the things you
might not agree with, and that’s completely fine, is that okay. – Yes.
– Yeah, it’s okay. And so I want you to know
that you could cafeteria this. You could cafeteria this, you don’t have to take
all hundred percent. You could say, you know
what, I kinda don’t, Dan, I don’t agree with you
that 30%, but I like the 70%. Can you just take that an implement, yes? – [Audience] Yes. – Yeah, so it’s completely fine. So just know you have the
luxury of cafetering this. How many of you agree that millionaires, we think different from the
poor and the middle class. – [Audience] Yes. – So part of my job today is to help you understand the distinction and start making some
new, powerful decisions. And, what we’re gonna
cover today is not so much the woo-woo, foo-foo, tree
hugging, law of attraction crap, okay, I’m not gonna cover that. And I’m not gonna cover
spiritual laws of success and things like that. Nothing wrong with that. You know, some of that I buy into, but that’s not what tonight is about. So here’s what you can expect. You know, why I always talk about the specialty I’m known for, breakthrough business strategies, that’s not what we will
talk about today, okay. I’ve been able to achieve
millionaire status by the age of 27, multi-millionaire
status by the age of 30, I’m 34 right now. I started from nothing, nothing, not knowing anybody, no contacts, with no personal or family resources. My family didn’t come from money. No backing and no formal education. I’m a college dropout. So this is the first time ever that I will discuss my
personal philosophies, business practices, what
has helped me achieve the success that I have today. And, this also answers the questions a lot of people ask me. How I do what I do, what
I do, and why I do them. So this workshop kind of
answers those questions, does that make sense? – [Man In Audience] Yes. – It answers those questions. People want to know, who do you work, and how do you think about certain things, so this is designed to answer that. So the sort of harsh
reality success information that you don’t get from other places. I am not here to motivate you. In fact, who can motivate you? – [Man In Audience] You. – Yeah, nobody can motivate you. Only you can motivate you. If anything, I’m here
to give you the reality that you want to think twice if this millionaire thing
is what you want or not. ‘Cause it ain’t for
everybody, absolutely not. If it is for everybody,
everybody would be a millionaire. Okay, it’s not for everybody. So warning, just so if
you’ve never been to my talk, anything like that, so this might get a little dicey for you. If you’re offended by
grownup talk, frank language, and occasion use of
profanity, occasional– (audience laughing) or frequent, either way. So no pie in the sky, what
I call woo-woo teachers who promise you, just think hard enough and want it bad enough, the universe will manifest it for you. (audience laughing) Okay, it’s very much like
if you want to lose weight and be fit and have a six
pack ab, you can sit there and you can just hope and think positive. And yes, I see myself
having a six pack ab. (chewing) Big Mac, by the way. Yes, um, I’m skinny, and I look so good. No, you’re fucking fat, okay. That’s not how it works,
that’s not how it works, okay. So we’re not gonna talk about that. Here’s the statistics. Take any hundred people at the start of their working careers,
follow them for 40 years. How long? – 40 years.
– 40 years. Until they reach the retirement age, here’s what you’ll find. Only one, how many? – [Audience] One. – Will be wealthy, one. Four will be financially secure. Five will continue
working, or actually five, 50 something, something is missing. Not because they want
to, because they have to. 36 will be dead and 54 will be dead broke, depending on their relatives,
friends, government, or even charity for a
minimum standard of living. That means only 5% are
successful and 95% are not. Some people say it’s 97% and 3%. Some people say it’s
1% and 99%, either way, is that a small percentage, yes or no? – [Audience] Yes. – Very small percentage. Very small percentage. So the hint is, whatever you observe that what majority of the people do and how they operate and how they think, if you adapt the way
they think and behave, what are you gonna get? – Same result.
– Same stuff. – Same stuff. So one thing you could get out of this, if nothing else is, look at
what other people is doing and then you do the– – [Audience] Opposite. – Opposite. Easier said than done. Easier said than done, okay. Success, at the end of days is not about this positive thinking and
visualize and manifestation. Success ultimately, fundamentally,
it’s about behavior. What’s the key? – Behavior.
– Behavior, okay. Not attitude, not your
upbringing, not your education, not your skill, not luck,
not even your capital. You could get all those things. If a person behaves in a way, behaves in a way that is congruent, what’s the word? – [Audience] Congruent. – With the goals she’s trying to achieve, she can not achieve them. If you’re behaving in a
way that’s incongruent with your goals, you cannot achieve them. Just like, if I wanna lose weight, yet I go to McDonald’s three times a day, am I gonna lose weight? – No.
– No. If I drink one liter of soda every day, am I gonna lose weight? No, in spite of how bad I want it. Because my behavior is not congruent with where I wanna go. Am I making sense? – [Audience] Yes. – Okay. So Lokism, most entrepreneurs
are far too focused on trying to manage
their businesses better rather than managing themselves better. Write this down. Most entrepreneurs are far too focused on trying to manage their businesses better rather than managing themselves better. What I always like to
do is I manage myself. I want to be better, myself. I want to become a more effective leader, I want to become a better marketer. I want to become a better strategist. If I improve, my business what? – [Audience] Improves. – Improves. I focus on managing me, because that’s the only
thing I can control, me. – [Announcer] 10 times your finances, 10 times your business,
10 times your marketing, 10 times your life. Hit the subscribe button now. (bold music)

  • kamy ahmed Post author

    Sifu I’ve also heard you say when you want to turn a business around, you actually go and work on the business owner and it makes sooo much sense as to why you do that

  • Emmanuel Ohale Post author

    Behavior must be aligned with your objective- otherwise spells disaster. Thanks Dan.

  • Clare Andre Post author

    This is crucial: "I focus on managing ME, because that's the only thing i can control" . I think this is the beginning of freedom. Deep thoughts Sifu Dan.

  • Chris Bradley Post author

    Manage your behaviour, manage me.

  • Emmanuel Ohale Post author

    Law of attraction without a real world plan of action is nothing but platitudes! Thanks Dan.

  • The NOWW System Post author

    There are wealth of ideas in this video – ideas that can upgrade a persons perspective on thinking like a millionaire. One of the ideas Dan shared was "If I improve, my business improves" was a light bulb moment for me. It reminds me of Jim Rohn who once said "In order for things to change, you have to change." Jim also once said "For things to get better, you have to get better." I like this philosophy. I also like Dan's way of focusing on managing himself as he mentioned that is the only thing he can control. Great video.

  • Christina Victoria Hirsch Post author

    95/5 Principle. Only a small percentage succeeds. Look at what the majority does and do the opposite. Success comes from behaving congruently with your goals. Focus on managing yourself, because it's the only thing you can control. When you're getting better at managing yourself, your business will improve.

  • Ryan Thoms Post author

    Love the part about behavior being congruent with goals. Great insight.

  • bushidoooification Post author

    "Most importantly you have have to focus on improving yourself", completely agree to you.

  • Jimi Hendrixx Post author

    Good point. What you focus on creates your reality + APPLIED action towards your Vision etc. Congruence + Success by Design ie Congruent Behavior. I like what I learnt from freedomvipclub l, futurecasting and Gary V, reverse-engineer your own success. Thanks Dan.

    Managing yourself might be one of the most exciting and thoughtful challenges, really get to understand yourself (HTC group 3)

  • dyanderson7 Post author

    manage myself & mimic the behavior of the wealthy (HTC group 3), Thank you

  • Trevor Geall Post author

    Most entrepreneurs are far to focused on trying to business their businesses better then manage themselves better. Love that!

    Focus on managing you!

  • Biswajit Bhattacharyya Post author

    First of all THANKS to Dan for sharing his inner knowledge! Not sure how many times I saw the video before. But this time, I took some notes. Below are those. Hope this may also help you to save the take away from the amazing, eye opening video:
    1. Millionaires think differently than poor people
    2. Only 5% of the people become successful in their lives in finance
    3. If you do and think what majority of people do then you will be getting what they get
    4. To become rich, think the opposite of what majority of the people think and do
    5. The key is behavior. If one is not congruent in his behavior to what he wants to achieve then one cannot achieve it
    6. Most of the entrepreneurs are far too focused to manage their business better than managing themselves better
    7. Focus on managing you. If you improve you, your business will also improve.

  • Jon Mui Post author

    Thank you for these insights Dan; such value:
    • only a very small percentage is successful (estimate: 97% vs. 3%)
    • if you adapt the way the majority does things, you will get their result
    • look at what the majority does & do the opposite (easier said then done)
    • success, down to the fundamentals is about behavior
    • when behavior is incongruent with goals, you will not be able to achieve those goals
    • manage myself better & become more effective myself first (if I improve, my business improves)

  • Alain Nkindu Post author

    Wow, I never looked at it like that before. I always thought you Grind it out in your business. I just learned something new here.

  • jaja smile Post author

    Laws of attention works . In order to for me to find a Mexican chick , I will not find China Town . In order for me to stop worrying income , I had to learn who to buy and sell cars or learn the stock market. Law of attraction " states " if you want a different out come than you to put yourself " on a different paths .

  • It began here, Where will it go? Post author

    You will be surprised how the universe works with us, Its you. You're an expression of it. You don't know it but it's true. The grandest simulation there is.

  • Weare Projection Post author

    He is right, however manifestation can occur from the mind but you must do something to help it along!

  • Trevor Geall Post author

    Manage myself… manage me

  • Boujee_Vintage Post author

    Where's the rest of the video 😒

  • Tyler Cerny Post author

    SIFU, thank you for empowering me to think like a millionaire. It's such a simple concept to look at the general population and do the opposite but it's not easy. Your behavior and ability to lead by example by embodying this concept makes it easier for me to do so consistently every day. I will not stop until I become the top 1% of people in regards to wealth and success.

  • London Lens TV Post author

    I know people think I’m weird for watching these and taking notes but I’m focused and determined to succeed.

  • Rupesh Garg Post author

    Your ideas are awesome, pretty much like Brian Tracy!!

  • Tarren Tyree Post author

    Success is about behavior. Most entrepreneurs are far to focus on managing there businesses then managing themselves.

  • djtatia Post author

    Dan I change mymindset and I found 200 ringgit in myfile lol

  • Mustafa Baris Post author

    Success is NOT really about behavior ..Success is about SELF-DISCIPLINE .. Anyone who can master self-discipline will be incredible successful in the areas of life in which self- discipline is applied fully … End of story ..

  • Christopher Grandison Post author

    I agree about behavior and hanits but I would argue that thinking comes first because that's where our behavior and actions stem from. You said the same in the "bonus clip" of thisbtalk. It's Think and Grow Rich, emphasis on think. The most important piece though, what do you do with those thoughts.

  • Michael Corbin Post author

    You are the man dan!!

  • Vaibhav Ahuja Post author

    First of all thank you Dan… thank you so much for sharing so much, so freely. You've changed my life and my thinking in so many ways… I cant thank you enough. I am an ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON from India. Can you please make a video on ' self talk ' for success

  • Ant P Post author

    Hi Dan, I just watched one of your kung fu videos and it lead me here. I like your approach and look forward to watching your videos. I have been influenced by Brian Tracey, Napolean Hill and Steven Covey while I am not where I want to be, I have shown myself big changes can actually happen in a short time. I like your perspective with your kung fu and am keen to get some of your insight into success.
    All the best.

  • MEDICAL FACTS Post author

    I love your realness

  • Advait Pathak Post author

    Behavior is most important thing I agree.

  • Manifest With Armine Post author

    Hi Dan! Our behaviors are a result of our thinking, so the Universe doesn't drop things from the sky- we instead feel our way into it (like as you teach confidence or feeling/surrounding ourselves with luxury) but we instead take action based on who we see ourselves as… our self concept. That's what you seem to teach, too- that you can only be as successful as you feel you are worthy of success. That's what the law of attraction is, that's it. Too much bullshit on the internet making it seem like visualization and law of attraction means sitting around and hoping it magically manifests. Action is manifestation and that leads to the manifestation of what we feel we are. You can't be successful if you're addicted to suffering, as you've said before. Thank you for your videos. They have been more helpful to me than all the "coach training" throughout 3 years have been.

    Thanks Sifu Dan for changing my outlook about success which is not just positive thinking, visualizing & manifesting but it's about behavior that's matching the goals I've set to achieve. I will focus more on managing myself better so when I improve, my business does too. Brilliant!

  • Moore Iz Post author

    Mr Dan Lok, may I start of by saying Thank you for your time that you put in in sharing your knowledge & experience in these videos.
    I've been following you videos now for some time, & trying to put into practice your advice or your point of vision as far as it is applicable to my situation.
    As a Millionaire or successful mindset, may I ask your point of view about the following situations,
    I have a small cleaning company on a island in the Atlantic, for some 8 years now, but now as a year or so, my priorities have changed and I'm trying to take my business to the next level.. My question is, what do you think about handeling competition, father & mother businesses (that I personally don't want want to step on) out of respect of my own parents and their situations.. And because I' m a parent as well (38 of age)
    I know/feel I can out flank them, but that's the long road, what's your point of view if I may ask..??
    Thank you very much for all your information
