Chapter 1 Worksheet
Play around with certain scenarios so you can come up with better answers for the diagnostics
section or for the answers in the diagnostics section to make better sense. Whatever the case may
be, this worksheet should be approached with an open mind. Again, there is no right or wrong
What is important is you go through this worksheet and put in enough time and effort so you can
come up with solid insights you can use to come up with practical solutions.
Write down three wrong assumptions you currently have
What three assumptions do you currently operate with that you feel often lead to disappointing
results or outright failure? This is no time to be shy. Everybody suffers from faulty assumptions.
Don’t think you are alone in the fact that you constantly seem to fail. No, you are definitely not in
Everybody has at least one assumption that tends to sabotage their chances of success.
For this worksheet exercise, I need you to write down all the assumptions that you think hold you
back and then identify the top three that produce the most damage.
After you’ve identified these top three assumptions, fully describe them. What do they normally
lead to? What other situations you think they create problems in? The whole point of this exercise is
for you to zero in how your mind operates as far as setting up and believing in the wrong
assumptions are concerned.
I want you to get a sense of emotional urgency regarding the fact that if you assume certain things,
you can bet those negative things will happen. By being clear regarding this connection, you can
then start decoupling or breaking this linkage so you can get on the road to identifying the right
assumptions which lead to better results.
Write down the top three wrong expectations you currently have
The other side of the equation are your expectations. Whenever you have assumptions regarding
situations in your life, you are bound to have expectations. These go hand in hand. They are joined
at the hip. I need you to identify all the wrong expectations you currently operate under. If you
always feel disappointed or if you feel that you can’t seem to get the kind of experience that you are
looking for, chances are very high that you are operating with both the wrong assumptions and the
At this stage of the worksheet, I need you to be clear as to the expectations that you may have.
Normally, wrong expectations share one common characteristic: they are all unrealistic. In other
words, they are not fully rooted in the reality of the situation they are applied to.
For example, it’s really hard to expect your friend who is always late to show up on time. Chances
are very high that your friend will follow his or her normal pattern and be late. Do you see how all
this works out? It really doesn’t make much sense for you to feel disappointed and angry with your
friend because you already know this person’s pattern.
I need you to focus on the logic behind this in identifying all your wrong expectations and zeroing
in on the top three or the three most common faulty expectations you operate under. Once you’ve
identified your top three wrong expectations, I need you to spell out what they often lead to.
Do you feel hurt? Do you feel betrayed? Do you feel diminished or discouraged or otherwise
demotivated. Whatever the case may be, expectations always lead to consequences. These
consequences can be physical in nature or are often financial, but they almost always involve some
sort of emotional element. I need you to describe what your top three wrong expectations often lead
Chapter 2 Worksheet
I need you to sit in a comfortable chair and assume a posture that isn’t so comfortable that you will
fall asleep. I need you to really focus in the following few minutes. I really need you to put a lot of
effort in the following exercises so you can get a clear idea regarding how your mental roller
coaster works and the kind of power you can achieve by resolving to control it as much as possible.
I need you to sit upright on a comfortable chair with your eyes closed and simply feel and visualize
and sense everything that is happening around you. I need you to use all your senses. As much as
possible, I need to you taste, smell, hear, see and feel everything around you. By seeing, of course, I
am talking about visualization. Give yourself a few minutes to do this.
What I need you to realize is that you’re picking up thousands, if not tens of thousands, of different
stimuli. For example, I am writing this book from a café and I’m looking out at the parking lot and I
can see thousands of details. There are lots of colors. There a lot of people walking around, lots of
leaves moving in the trees. I can see the sunlight bounce off the cars of different colors. These
images come with matching sounds and scents.
I hope you see where I am coming from. I need you to get that full 3D effect in visualizing as much
as possible all the different sensory signals happening around you at a given moment. As much as
possible, make these sensory signals as vivid as you can. The next step is to pick up on certain
stimuli that you feel are positive. I need you to deliberately and purposely filter the scene that you
are visualizing and pick the most positive elements.
What this means is that you try to reduce all the data points that you are receiving into a small group
of stimuli that you can effectively manage. Take your time. This isn’t easy especially if this is the
first time you are doing it. Take however much time you can to effectively filter what you visualized
and detected from external stimulation into a small, manageable group of data points.
The next step is to zero in on these different things that you are picking up and deliberately put a
positive interpretation on them. Don’t give yourself any room for a negative or wishy-washy
interpretation. Your interpretation must be completely positive.
For example, I am looking out at a parking lot and I can see a mom apparently with her mouth open
and the kid has his eyes and mouth wide open and seems to be in the process of running in the other
direction. I also look at another mom gently caressing the hair of her daughter as they sit on a
swing. I’m going to select the mom with the daughter. While there are so many different ways to
interpret that scene, I’m going to choose to interpret her actions as that of a loving mom and I would
like to get the emotional impression that there is a tight emotional bond between mom and daughter.
Do you see what happened here? I need you to do the same thing. I need you to follow the same
decision process to willfully put a positive spin on the otherwise ambiguous signals that you are
detecting with your body.
Mental realization #1
After the exercise above, do you realize the difference interpretations could make? Do you realize
that you have a tremendous amount of power over the judgments that you choose to make? Do you
realize that your judgments can lead to certain emotional states? Give yourself the time to let all this
sink in. This is probably not going to happen all at once. But give yourself enough time to go
through the process.
If it helps, I need you to do another mental exercise. Using the same mental images and data points
that you used to come up with a positive interpretation, I need you to look at the same information
and choose to interpret it in the worst way possible. Be as negative as you can. What realization do
you walk away with? That’s right. You can take away the same group of facts and come up with a
completely different judgment.
For example, the image of the mother caressing the daughter I can choose to interpret it as her
expressing a lot of sadness and nostalgia because she knows that she is going to die of cancer in a
month. Do you see how that little interpretation changes the emotional trajectory of that data point?
I need you to do the same thing. The reason for this exercise is I need you to fully understand how
powerful your power of interpretation is.
Mental realization #2
If you are able to use the two mental exercises above, I need you then to think about your mental
habits. You should get a clear picture now of how you habitually interpret external signals. Again,
there is no right or wrong answers. Don’t be embarrassed to admit that you are intrinsically a
negative or pessimistic person. It’s okay. That’s just part of your mental habits, and just like with
any habits, with the right amount of effort, you can change them.
Another thing that I need you to realize is that it takes a lot of conscious effort to derail your mental
roller coaster. However, it can be done. If you are able to take the same set of facts and come up
with a positive interpretation and recycle the same facts to come up with a very negative
interpretation, one thing should be clear to you: you are fully in control of how you choose to
interpret your external reality. This unleashes a tremendous amount of personal power because you
can choose to derail your mental roller coaster.
Again, to recap, your mental roller coaster often leads you to negative outcomes. By going through
these exercises, you can get the skills that you need to steer that mental roller coaster to something
that leads to a better career, higher income, and higher level of happiness, better relationships and
overall better well-being. It is your choice.
Chapter 3 Worksheet
I need you to identify the top two methods that produce the highest level of control over your
mental roller coaster. After you’ve sorted your list, pick the top two and continue to practice them.
Give yourself a few weeks to do this. Compare them side by side. Maybe you can do one method on
day one and the second method on day two and then alternate back to method number one.
Whatever the case may be, I need you to invest enough time to get a clear idea as to the scalability
of the results that you get.
Which approach delivers greatest results over time?
Now that you’ve put in enough time with the two inner control methods, I need you to focus on one
key question. After you’ve tracked your results, which method continues to deliver greater and
better results the more you practice it? I want you to identify which of the two methods you are
studying improves over time.
If you find yourself in a situation where both methods are improving, pick the one that is
demonstrably improving at a higher rate. If you are not able to identify that method then give
yourself more time to keep practicing these two until one of the methods stands out. Once you reach
that point, stick with that method and drop the other.
Chapter 4 Worksheet
I’d like you to close your eyes and imagine that you are at a funeral parlor. Picture yourself stepping
closer to a coffin. It’s a plain coffin and you can see the light of the funeral parlor bouncing faintly
off the surface of the coffin. Step closer, you realize that it’s closed.
I need you to sit down in one of the seats close to the front of the funeral parlor near the coffin.
Listen to what people are saying about the person in the coffin. Was the person kind? Was the
person loving? Did the person change people’s lives? Did the person make some sort of impact? I
just need you to immerse yourself in that scene. Just imagine all these random people talking about
the dead person.
I need you to understand a key lesson here. That lesson is that, ultimately, who you are will be
determined when you die. Just gnaw on this thought. Now that everything is vivid in your mind, I
need you to imagine that you opened the upper section of the coffin that reveals the face of the
person and I want you to imagine yourself as the person in the coffin.
Does it change your mindset? What would you like people to say about you when you have passed
on? I need you to write this down. I need you to list down these character traits. Are these the traits
you want to be remembered by? Are you perfectly comfortable with these character traits?
The next thing I need you to do is to brainstorm a list of values that lead to those character traits.
Write all these down and then sort them based on importance. Pick the top three. On a daily basis, I
want you to write the top three values over and over again. Before you begin work, I need you to
write down your top three values. The next day, write them down again. Do this as regularly as
The reason why I need you to do this is because you need to use your values as your daily compass.
They point you in the right direction. They will tell you where to focus your energy and attention to.
If you are able to do this then you would be able to lay the groundwork for ultimate victory in your
Chapter 5 Worksheet practice
For this mental exercise, I need you to pretend that there is a camera above you and to your front.
This camera is invisible of course, but it’s hovering in front of you. It can see your complete being. I
need you to imagine this camera and visualize the view of that camera would have of you. Once
that image is clear, I need you to stop looking at the world from your pair of eyes and use the
Are you with me so far? The next step is to remember yourself in a social setting with other people.
Again, use the perspective of the invisible camera. What do you see? Again, there is no right or
wrong answer. We are just trying to get an honest assessment of how you normally respond in a
social setting. Now, I want you to spice things up a little bit and remember the last time you were in
a social setting where there was a lot of stress and pressure. How do you see yourself react? Finally,
remember a situation where somebody insulted you or made you feel uncomfortable or defensive.
Pay close attention to the camera image. What do you see happening?
Now that you have a clear idea of how you respond from an external point of view, I need you to
take this mental exercise to the next level. I need you to then imagine yourself as responding based
on your values. You are going to be communicating based on your ideal character. How does the
video image change? Do you see any changes in your emotional reactions? When you look at the
ideal you, how would this person handle stress? How would this person handle pressure? How
would this person deal with personal attacks? Keep fine tuning these images in your mind until you
get a clear image. Remember, the key is to respond based on your values, not your circumstances or
Chapter 6 Worksheet practice
Take one of the top goals you currently have, list out the things that you are already doing to
achieve that goal. Break down those activities. When do you do them? How often do you do them?
What is the quality of the results that you normally get? The next step is for you to think of ways
you can increase the volume of effort regarding that goal. Are there any other things you can do to
attack that goal?
Once you’ve listed down all the things you can think of, I need you to also think about intensity.
How much more time you can put in? Can you come up with something more efficient and effective
to boost the results that you get from one particular approach to hitting your goal?
After you’ve done that, I want you to think about the quality. What is kind of solution you can come
up with that can both boost the volume of results you get, increase your intensity while at the same
time preserving or improving the quality? If this seems impossible, keep thinking. You’d be
surprised as to what kind of solutions you can come up with. You are actually more creative and
imaginative than you give yourself credit for. Keep attacking this problem. You may be pleased with
Push yourself to the limit
Identify the skill sets that you use to address the goals that you have. I need you to list down these
skill sets and ask yourself how often you use them. Try to set up a schedule where you engage
yourself in an almost daily if not hourly basis. I need you to put pressure on yourself because it’s the
only you keep honing your skills.
These skills are not free-floating parts of your life that don’t really impact your life in any
meaningful way. No. If you improve these skills, not only can they help you achieve specific goals
but you can apply these skills improvement to other goals in your life.
Resolve to push out the walls of your comfort zone
If you are able to finish practice exercise number 2 above, take it to its logical conclusion: push out
your comfort zone. You see, my friend, comfort zones are like invisible prisons. If you don’t keep
pushing them out they will eventually start caving in on you. The set of things that you think you
are capable of start getting smaller and smaller.
The worst part of all of this is that it is completely self-imposed. Nobody is telling you to believe
that that the things you are capable of doing are getting fewer and fewer. That is not true. You are
only as capable as you allow yourself to believe.
So if you did the previous two exercises, allow yourself to believe that you are able to achieve more
and actively push against your comfort zone by doing tackling more and more difficult challenging
goals. This is one of the most powerful ways you can pursue escalating goals. Your skill sets never
remain fixed or stagnant and you are able to achieve greater and greater results.
