The Right Stuff, The Millionaire Mind

The Millionaire Mind Set

There were thirteen of us sitting in a classroom, all complete strangers. The question in my head was , “why”? Why are we here and how did we get picked to be in this room? This was to be a break out session for some qualified people. All thirteen of us were told last night to come back today for this breakout session with a printed copy of our resume. Why did we need a resume, after all I did not travel to Chicago to look for a job, I came here to take a workshop to better my life. In a very brief conversation with one of my equally puzzled mates, she noted the same thing. Why are we here and why did they want us to bring our resumes? She was not looking for a job either.

“Please everyone take a seat” instructed one of the ushers. “Please make certain that you have your resumes out and on the table. Our guest speaker will be here in only a couple of minutes.”

As everyone started to move toward his or her seats, it was easy to see that all of us started to become a little anxious and a little excited. All the participants pulled out the resumes and put them on the table in front of them. During our short wait everyone started to have a conversation in small two or three people groups.

Without announcement or fanfare in walked our special guest. The room became completely silent. What happened, why is one of the richest people in the world here to talk to this small group?

“Greetings all,” he started, “thank you for taking the time to listen to the few things that I would like to share with you. I guarantee you that I will not take up much of your morning”.

The woman that I was speaking with early quickly added, “take the rest of the weekend if you like.” The room started to give a little nervous laugh.

“If everyone here could please pull out their resumes and let me take a quick look, so that I can know whom I am speaking with today.”

As he walked around the room looking at everyone resumes, I found myself saying I would work for him. I hope that my resume will do the trick of opening up the door for me. Lost in my thoughts I hardly noticed that our guest speaker was making a brief comment to everyone as he gave back his or her resumes.

As he reviewed my resume, he almost flipped it back at me and said, “You are just wasting your time.” Before I could even gather myself, my resume was back on my desk, and our guest speaker was moving on to the next person. What a shock. By the time, I had a chance to collect my thoughts and ready to make a statement before he was talking with the last person in the room.

Flipping the gentleman resume back on the table, he stated in a quick, angry tone. “And you are just an ‘F-in’ waste of time.” The whole room was stunned.

As our special guest walked back to the podium, the whole room was stunned and speechless. How could the gentleman that we all knew by reputation walk in here and insult us? As it turned out, he had nothing pleasant to say to anyone concerning their resumes.

At the front of the room, our guest speaker started. “Why is it that each one of you allowed me to say something negative about you or something down right ugly? I will tell you why. I have the attitude of a Billionaire you have the attitude of a broke person. Even when I was flat ass broke, I had an attitude, a belief, the knowledge that I was a Billionaire. It’s now time for you to accept that you are what you believe you are. You will act and continue to pay people money to teach you instead of them paying you to teach them. You must understand that you are a Millionaire, and you must allow that mentality to take over now. Do not let anyone, me or anyone effect you do what you know is right from the mindset of a Millionaire.”

Now he had our attention. “Be a Millionaire right now, not a person trying to be a Millionaire, Be a Millionaire now. You are a Millionaire accept it, allow it, be grateful for it and let it flow out of you now. Like a Millionaire, thinking from the mind of a Millionaire you will come to make your decisions as a Millionaire. No one should be able to speak to you the way I did, and have an effect on who you are or how you feel. If someone has something negative to say about you, or holds a negative opinion of you. You should be able to simply say ‘so what’. There is no need to become angry or aggressive or vengeful. Do not worry about their opinion or when they will be forced to eat their words, just know that they will be forced to eat their words. Move on.”

In conclusion, he summed it up this way. “Be now, the heaven and the doing will follow. A period when you walk out of this room it is done, it is your job to allow it to happen. You have always been millionaires I could tell, by the way; you carried yourself throughout this conference, this is why I asked to speak to the group of you. Now it is your job to go out and teach others to find the Millionaire inside of them.”

ORAPAPA = Problem solved!

When challenges (problems) arrive, and they will I suggest you try this system ORAPAPA.



Alternatives and improvements

Past experience



Alignment and Ethics

ORAPAPA is an approach to problem-solving that examines all sides of a challenge and creates open and honest dialog with other members of your team, or an open dialog with just yourself. While you may find it difficult to take a look at all areas when you have a basis by answering frank questions, you will quickly move past that challenge. The key to ORAPAPA is asking yourself powerful questions.

  • Opportunities:  What opportunities will open up for me as I move ahead? What good will happen to and for me as I move forward?
  • Risks: What could go wrong and how will that affect my career and or family?
  • Alternatives and Improvements: Are there any other options? Can I make a different choice that will create robust result?
  • Past Experience: Did anyone else you know have this same type of question in front of them?  What did they do? Did it work or did they fail?
  • Analysis: Now carefully review the data that you have collected. Is there any unusual trend? Are you still showing bias, when you answered the questions?  Did you speak with people who would give you all sides of the story? What else do you need to learn?  What assumptions did you make that need to be re-validated?
  • People: What will other people think? How will other people feel? How much should you consider other people with this challenge?  Do other people have all the information they need?
  • Alignment and Ethics:  How will the decision best fit into your standards?  Will your decision align with your personal and business life?

Ask and discover the answer to the question above and the solution will form for you.  Problem-solving is all about finding the best solution and the only way to have great answer is to ask great questions.

Six Sigma as Part of the Personal Development Plan

Six sigma

Six Sigma

Six Sigma is a metric, a methodology, and a philosophy.

  • A metric to measure the rate or number of errors
  • A methodology to produce a system to discover errors and purpose a system to improve the process
  • A philosophy of analysis and measurement to eliminate errors

How will Six Sigma, a process designed to improve the quality of manufacturing and lately, customer service with Lean Six Sigma, help us in our Personal Development? Over the next several weeks, let’s have a discussion covering Personal Development and using the Six Sigma Process.  Our discussion will mostly focus on the methodology of Six Sigma and our personal development process.

We will start with “Define”.  We need to define our target what it is we are looking for, what quality improvement we are looking for.  Do we want to build a safer car, a car that is not being recalled for repairs two or three times a year? Do we want to improve the quality of our life by committing to a Personal Development Plan?For today lets use this definition and a small part of personal development: our ability to improve our learning new skills and become an expert at our chosen field.

So, of course, there are many details that we should be aware of. For example,  are we getting enough sleep and eating the right foods to work and learn efficiently. In the Six Sigma process, we need to define all issues we feel are relevant to the outcome. What does it mean to eat the right foods? What does it mean to get enough sleep? These are questions you must answer for yourself. There is plenty of research to help you create the correct answers, for you.

This is a critical step, it is important that we have the right definitions, so that we can measure the right things.

Sit down and brainstorm and begin to create a list of what you believe defines personal growth that leads to success. Always remember the clearer the definition the easy it is to measure your activities. The Six Sigma process is an analytical, logical process that can be adapted to our personal success. At least that is the theory that I will operate on, and invite you to take a journey with me.

As time permits, I will write more articles that will closely follow the Six Sigma methodology, and I look forward to your input in the comment section below.

By the way, what are you reading for half an hour each day to help you improve? Please also share that in the comment box below.


Understanding How to Use the Six Sigma Process to Build the Life of Your Dreams


If success leaves clues, then why can’t we define those clues measure those clues and use those clues for success?

The Hypothesis:

In order to be successful, you must first get up every morning and exercise for 30 minutes. Can we not measure every morning to see if we have accomplished our goal? If we exercise for 30 minutes a day, you must agree that your brain will work better. Your brain working better leads to a better life as fresh blood and oxygen flow.

What if we discovered that reading for half hour every day will make you an expert in your field, therefore create success.

We should create a list of values and activities that will lead to success every day. So let’s create a value-based list now.

  • sincere
  • gracious
  • flexible
  • happy
  • seductive
  • brevity
  • humorous

This short list of seven is nowhere near enough, but let’s work with this list. If we put all these characteristics into a spreadsheet and check them off every day as we demonstrate them in our everyday life. How would you life change?

So let’s take the first one. Sincere. If you are able for the next 30 days to check off sincere your sincere with your neighbor. Sincere with your coworkers. Honest with yourself. How would you life change? What about gracious if you are gracious to everyone. If you proceeded as if life is a blessing, would your life be a blessing. If you bless what you have and what other have, you will automatically create prosperity for YOURSELF?
