"I'm not the smartest or dumbest person in the room, but I am the one that's willing to do whatever it takes to upgrade my mindset and my skill set, and I'm persistent as hell to achieve my goal, no matter what." John Assaraf
In this special episode of Habits 2 Goals, John Assaraf—a two-time New York Times bestselling author and H2G's first two-time special guest—takes us deep into the essence of personal development by sharing his own breakthrough stories and strategies, as well as the latest developments in brain science as it relates to goal achievement.
John and MG discuss the upcoming 9th annual Brain-A-Thon—a free event hosted by John Assaraf specifically designed to help people break through their own limiting beliefs.
John was a below-average student who struggled mightily in school; he ultimately dropped out in 11th grade.
Fortunately, he was introduced to a successful real estate investor who became his mentor, sharing a multitude of "success" insights.
"When you’re interested in your goals, chances are they aren’t going to materialize. However, when you’re committed to your goals, your odds improve dramatically," Assaraf says.
That was the first great lesson a young John Assaraf would receive from his millionaire mentor: be truly committed to your goals.
“This mindset stuff really works!”
Later on, John invested in a REMAX real estate franchise for the state of Indiana and grew it from a single office to 85 branches with more than 1,200 sales associates. In total, under his leadership, they would achieve $4.5 billion in revenue.
By upgrading his mindset, his skill-set, and his emotional tool set, John became remarkably more effective.
"People are either pleased with their existing results, or they feel they can do and achieve more," Assaraf explains. "Within the delta often lies essential mindset shifts and key, new behavior patterns."
The Brain-A-Thon provides many free, powerful tools and insights, shared by the world’s top specialists in neuroscience and behavioral psychology. The event also includes many well-known experts who will be discussing various success principles.
Participants will learn about shattering limiting beliefs and forging new mindsets that are congruent with their most important goals and ideals
The proof is in the pudding; hence, this is the 9th annual Brain-A-Thon!
Assaraf says, "I wanted this to be like the Jerry Lewis telethon, only with the mission to help as many as possible achieve a new level of understanding of how to harness their $100 billion computer and reach new levels of achievement!"

"Most of us have a brain worth $100 billion," Assaraf explains.
"Science has invested more than that to recreate our brain and cannot come close. The question becomes, are you the best operator of your brain that you can be?"
"In this day and age, there isn't any excuse for anyone who desires better results in any area of their life. It's all learnable for those who are truly committed!"
