Hungry people hire Jack to help them feel 7-figure success in all five areas of life.
The key to success? Your mindset. What you believe, as soon as you believe it, dumps chemicals from your brain into your bloodstream causing your body to take action in the direction of that belief. That is not just my philosophy of success, it is the ancient wisdom of God, a proven, scientific fact, and my personal experience.
Belief spurs people to do the right thing and belief sidetracks them to do the wrong thing. In an organization, a family, a classroom, or a church, the members follow the leaders' example. Your people won't do the right thing because you won't do the right thing. This too has been my experience and is a fact written in stone on the pages of history. My wife, my children, my employees, my students all followed my lead for good or bad. Not that you or I are malicious, merely that our habits are either on or off track and they cascade down making it easy for others to magnify our actions, and more deeply, our beliefs.
The people you influence are your people whether they're employees, family, students, or friends. It's easy to tell your people--they're the ones you gripe about for not doing the right thing! I believe you can influence them to do the right thing much more often and, as a result, you'll have a 7-figure life.
The result of believing the right thing is to do the right thing. The result of doing the right thing is to have the good life you want.
I want you to have the good life. That, by the way is the point of all ethics--to find the good life. Not some woo-woo bs, not some mysterious, confusing, academic jargon--the good life, the real thing, objectively tested and proved.
I have it, but it wasn't always this way. I fought all sorts of doubts, fears, and failures to get great health, fantastic relationships, wealth, a meaningful career, and an inspiring spiritual life. By God's kindness and my effort in the right direction, I have success in every area (that's the good life).
Read the testimonies and you'll see that my clients believe in my proprietary system that revolutionizes their thinking and speeds them to the the results they want.
A better life fast.
I train brains to make it easier to do the right thing. Together, my clients and I see fast growth. Along the way, miraculous things happen: all the important categories of life also grow—more of everything good. And it’s surprisingly fast.

What I Believe
I believe that belief is action. What we believe, we do.
That's why values are very important to me. So is culture. Values are the things we believe so deeply that we won’t negotiate, and our actions reflect our values every time. Culture is the collective actions of a group (so, it's also a collection of their beliefs). You can see what one believes by observing their behavior, and by learning the core beliefs of a culture, you can predict their behavior.
When it's easier to do the right thing, A person is more successful, and the culture is Awesome.
When a group shares values, their behaviors align, and the culture is healthier and more resilient, especially in tough times. Of course, you could say the same thing for a drug cartel, but it's hard to consider them nice, isn't it? We assume that you want your organization to do some good as well as to make some money.
My Core Values
- Belief. Belief is action. Tell me what you believe and I'll tell what you'll do.
- Mindset. You can't do everything with a positive mindset, but you can do a whole lot more than you can with a negative one.
- Honesty. All the time. Why are we discussing this?
- Resourcefulness. Resourceful people find a way to get things done.
- Personal responsibility. Don't blame others for the reality you created.
- Respect. Like honesty, respect is all the time, no discussion. It is stupid to respect stupidity, by the way, so I guess candor is also a value, but candor sounds a lot to me like honesty.
- Fairness. Treat everyone the same way, nicely. You can disrespect a fool internally and still be nice to him.
- Justice. Join a cause to make the world better. I suggest the fight against human trafficking, but you figure it out.
- Environmental care. Not just planetary environmentalism, include home and work space. If your place looks like crap, fix it.
- Giving back to your community. (A few of the community organizations I give back to are listed here.)
