“If you’re not dependable, you’re expendable.” — Gary Ryan Blair

In today’s knowledge-based economy, your earning ability is generally determined by ten factors:

For the purposes of this message, we are going to focus on the virtue of dependability.

Why?

Because, if you’re not dependable…you’re expendable.

To be dependable…


Because life is a high stakes game of one and done

“You are accountable for all that you do, as well as for the pleasures that you fail to enjoy during your lifetime. Count the days, weeks, and life lost if you have not chosen to do something epic. – Gary Ryan Blair

What Are You Willing to Suffer For?

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ― Ronald Reagan

Like most everything in life…

Freedom is a choice and with choice comes responsibility.

In my many years of coaching and consulting…

I’ve found that, in…

How’d you like to multiply your money five times over?

$6 million into $30 million… using a simple strategy?

When it comes to investing, the thing many people get wrong is perspective.

They’re too happy to take $100 now, not knowing it could be $500 with a little patience.

Bobby Bonilla got it right.

From 1988–91, Bonilla was one…


“Life is a sequence of moments…all called now!” — Gary Ryan Blair

The past is behind us.

The future is ahead of us.

Between the two…

On the thinnest slice of time imaginable…

Is the present…

The NOW in front of us.

How old must we be before we really understand that?

The truth is…

Neither yesterday nor tomorrow is our friend.

All we have is today…

The precious present.

That’s all we will ever have.

While it’s natural and comforting to want to cherish yesterday…

And look towards tomorrow with rose colored glasses.

To think that tomorrow will…


Here’s how to deal with the elephant in the room

A large part of my job involves rubbing my clients the wrong way.

I do that that by asking difficult questions…challenging false assumptions…attacking comfort zones…and calling them out on their bulls&*!

And they love me for it.

Today…my intent is to do the same for you by laying down some tough love.

Prepare to be irritated, harassed…and have your chops busted.

Once you get past the drama of having your bulls&*! confronted…

You’ll thank me for it.

Heck…you might even name your next kid after me.

Ready?

A Master Class on Winning When The Odds Are Stacked Against You

”Never give in! Never, never, never, never — in nothing great or small, large or petty. Never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.” — Sir Winston Churchill

This message is meant to be aggressive, confrontational and combative.

For those of you who are fed up with the nonsense going on in the world right now and ready to do something about it…let’s get after it.

General George S. Patton has been quoted as saying…“Wars are not won by defensive tactics.”

I agree with the…


How to quickly close any performance gap and crush your goals

“Superior execution removes the barrier between the life you are now living and the one you’re capable of living.” — Gary Ryan Blair

The people who say there are no shortcuts to success and that you can’t make up for lost time probably haven’t heard of closing speed.

Closing Speed is all about shortening the path to success…it’s about rapidly reducing the size of performance gaps…it’s about radically decreasing the amount of time in getting from Point A to B.

Having great closing speed is the critical difference…


How to Overcome Feeling Like a Fraud

“Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.” — Buddha

Imagine you had a safe with $5,000,000.00 in it…and this safe had a combination lock that required 6 numbers to open…

How much would a tiny slip of paper with those 6 numbers mean to you?

Today, I am offering you a slip of paper with those 6 numbers on it.

However, before I share that with you…let me first provide an important insight that could be holding you back from achieving everything you ever wanted.

Because Great Things Never Came From The Comfort Zone

“Show me a goal with no challenge or risk, and I’ll show you a goal with no value or reward.” — Gary Ryan Blair

One of the greatest things about life is that each day, workout, project, task or race provides you with a life changing and character defining choice…

To give everything you’ve got…to push, test and challenge your limits…or to mail it in, lower the bar and sandbag your efforts.

The former is the sign of a champion…the latter is the mark of fool.

Sandbagging is the ultimate form of betrayal as your full potential will never see the light of day.

So what’s it gonna be?

Are you going to live your life…
