Hyperopic Planning: A How-To Guide to Expanding Your “Success Muscle”

Screen Shot 2014-01-30 at 4.45.38 PMHey!!!!

It’s good to be back in my hometown of Chicago.

It’s so nice to get organized and have that higher level of productivity again, yet I’m a little bit salty because I thought I was tricking the system by heading to Thailand for the month of January and beating the cold here.

Yet, low and behold, I get home and the Polar Vortex has still enveloped Chicago, and it’s a balmy -20 again with the wind chill.

And I’ve been completely jetlagged from all the traveling, yet it was a fun trip home, as I was able to hang out with a good friend in the cock pit of the airplane on both legs of the trip from Bangkok and into the US…

And as I sat their in the cockpit, I thought to myself “there’s got to be a self development concept I can pull out of this…”

Now I have my pilot’s license, just flying little 2 seaters in VFR conditions, and I remember hearing about how the autopilot on airplanes work and thinking, ‘well, most of commercial flying is just the take off and landing, and in between you set the autopilot and sit back and relax.

But there’s so much more that’s going on during the flight that the average flyer would never think about.

It’s like a chess game where you are always thinking 5 steps ahead.

Sure, they’re planning the best route to get from point A to B, what the weather conditions are like at the destination airport, how much fuel to put on board, and finding an altitude that has the least turbulence…

But almost MORE time is spent looking at alternative plans, they don’t determine how much fuel needs to be on board to land, they think about how much would be needed if they have to do a go around because of something happening at the destination airport, they’re planning what time they need to be at the destination airport to guarantee their passengers don’t miss their connections…

And it made me think of how most people plan their own life.

Most people don’t even think about planning from A to B, where they’re at and what is needed to reach their goal, their just trying to get through the day!

So push that success muscle, and start thinking more long term.

How to ‘Draw State From Within’ and Feel 100% Happy All the Time

Screen Shot 2014-01-23 at 10.47.53 AMWell hello!

Coming at you from Ischgl, Austria with views of the Swiss Alps…

I was literally boarding through some trees and the view was just too amazing to pass up, and I used my friend’s camera and my headphone mic to shoot a quick video summarizing a lot of the concepts from last week’s LSA Takeover Week.

By the way, I really had a lot of fun shooting all those videos last week and seeing the comments, and am really happy with how well the content was received.

I’m basically treading new water here with the whole Lifestyle Development material, and am glad all the guys interested in pickup also enjoy the self development stuff. :)

And with that, here’s a vid with a step by step strategy to “Draw State From Within”

Good ole Blueprint terminology there, it really is SIMPLE to do, but that doesn’t make it easy.

Drawing state from within means building a positive/happy emotional state without relying on anything in the external environment.

Being happy is when you are living in alignment with your values.

To live in alignment with your values you must KNOW what those values are.

So determine your life values, and live in alignment with those, and focus on the journey not the result, and it will lead to a bulletproof confidence and happiness that is completely under your control.

And with that…

The end of LSA Takeover week. (tear)

I hope you enjoyed all the videos, and if you want a specific gameplan for yourself for 2014, as well as have even more intimate access with me through crowd sourced videos and live webinars, you should definitely check out The Lifestyle Academy.

I’ve added a bunch of new bonuses, including my dating product Evolutions, and 6 months of Immersions videos, literally over 15 hours of video content and recorded webinars to truly Master your dating life…

All free ONLY when you sign up for the January ’14 class of The Lifestyle Academy.

Have a great weekend and as always……..


When the Magic Pill Mindset Actually Works: Delayed Gratification is Dead Wrong!

FB-5-5Whatup, Brad here coming at you from Bangkok, Thailand…

And I hope you’re enjoying all the content for LSA takeover week…

This has been a lot of fun so far, and it’s only going to get better today and on the webinar this Sunday…

Anyway, today I wanted to talk to you about why delayed gratification is a horrible way to think about long term success, and how you can flip things upside down by getting rid of the idea of short term pain for long term happiness, and have it be just happiness all the time.

One of my fundamental teaching methodologies is that negative motivation is not sustainable and doesn’t lead to the type of long term success that makes you happy…

Yet if you look at the majority of successful people out there, most of them are driven by negative motivation…

So check out today’s vid and see WHY you shouldn’t follow the path of other successful people:


It doesn’t need to be about sacrificing for the future… It’s fun RIGHT NOW, because you are growing towards that future.

And it’s cool because the more you can instill this mindset, the more doing the type of tasks most people would find completely boring or negative actually become FUN and enjoyable to you…

It actually becomes FUN to save your money and see your bank account grow…

It becomes FUN to get rejected by women and learn from every approach…

And if becomes FUN to work 12 hours a day, because you’re learning new skills each day, and growing your business…

And when those doubts creep in, lean on that model as a pillar of confidence, think about how good it’s going to feel when you finally achieve your goals, have fun, and enjoy the process of growth towards a better life!

If you have any questions, feel free to post them below, as well as get on the webinar I’m hosting this Sunday, at 6pm EST.

It’s going to be a lot of fun…

I want to thank you for watching my videos this week, I hope you enjoyed all the LSA takeover week material.

I had a lot of fun creating all the videos, and spending my time here for the launch in Thailand.

I’ve got a week off now and am heading to Switzerland for some snowboarding in the Alps…

I hope you have a great weekend, and as always…


And here’s the final compilation of a bunch of LSA testimonials again!

How to Be More Assertive, Stop Caring What Others Think, And Live By Your Own Standards

LSA-Thumb4-5Whatup, Brad here again in Thailand, getting pretty bronzed up by now! Haha

Anyway, if you remember on Monday, we did an exercise to help you find everything you valued in life, from girls, to financial freedom, to your career, and health and fitness goals…

And today I want to talk about what it means to live by those values, and how to live a life of integrity.

If I look at the people I respect most in my life, integrity is a common thread they all have.

But what does it mean to live a life of integrity?

It means having concrete values, and living by them.

It means standing up for what you believe in, no matter what the consequences…

So if you want more out of life, and are ready to break free from social conditioning for good, then it’s time to take that list of values you created on Monday and use it as the roadmap for the rest of your life.

Check out today’s vid to get some examples!


Living by your values means making the tough decision to choose what you want to do over even your closest friends…

It means taking what you want and not worrying if other people think it’s right or wrong, it’s right if it’s in alignment with YOUR values, stop caring about everyone else….

When you know what your life values are, and have them prioritized based on your current situation, the process of making a decision becomes a lot clearer and takes away the risk of damaging your self esteem.

You made the best decision with the knowledge you had available, and even if you make a mistake, you’ll learn more about how to live by your own values, maybe just what NOT to do. Haha

So keep moving towards what YOU want in life, and stop letting others dictate your actions and happiness!

If you have any more questions about your values, your vision, and creating that roadmap for success then you better get on the webinar I’m hosting this Sunday, January 19th, at 6pm EST.

It’s going to be sick, covering new concepts about Your Identity, answering any questions related to the videos this week, and I’m opening enrollment for The Lifestyle Academy.

Head on over to:

Alright, I’m off to the beach, as always…


And here’s a full compilation of testimonials from The LSA!!!

Productivity Mastery: Get More Done in Less Time

LSA-Thumb3-5Whatup, Brad here coming at you from Thailand again.

In the last video we did an exercise that shines a light on what your life values are, and at the end I suggested you create a gameplan with measurable goals to complete in each category.

All those values, and trying to grow in every area of your life can get a bit overwhelming at times, so today I want to talk to you about how to strategize your day to achieve those goals in less time.

I’ve said it before, but the thing every successful person has in common, is they have an organized strategy for success. It’s a linear model, the more organized you get, the more success you’ll have.

And with more organization comes a more predictable pattern, which over time gives you the confidence that you’ll actually achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Think about it, how much confidence would you have in your own success, if you went about each day running around disorganized, putting out fires, finishing things last minute, and never accomplishing what you planned to do that day.

Compared to waking up each day with a structured gameplan to accomplish every task on your to do list, knowing that you’re completing everything in the most effective way …

So let’s dive into creating that structured gameplan, and starting your day off right…

Click here to get the gameplan!

Yep! Incorporating things like a night time ritual, a morning ritual, and having that structured approach to your day, week, and long term goals will SERIOUSLY boost your productivity and level of success.

Hopefully today’s video helps you get some more structure in your day, and the gameplan to tackle more tasks each day.

If you have any questions on any of this, the best place to ask them will be on the webinar I’m hosting this Sunday, January 19th at 6pm EST.

Definitely join up, I’ll be talking about What Your Identity is, tying all of these videos together and also opening up enrollment for the January 2014 class of The Lifestyle Academy.

So head on over to: http://www.bradbranson.com/webinar

And I’ll see you tomorrow!

Ah, and here’s another LSA Testimonial!

Fulfillment Defined: Uncover the Hidden Mindset That Holds You Back From Happiness

LSA-Thumb2-5Whatup, Brad Here in Koh Tao, Thailand.

Aww yeah, this is gonna be good!

I’ve been waiting to put this vid out for a while now, but I wanted to keep some of the good stuff for LSA takeover week. And here we are, so let’s get to it!

As I’ve worked with more and more guys doing the lifestyle coaching, I’ve developed a teaching tool that I like to call The Ultimate Man Operating System, or ManOS for short, which forces you to look deep inside and find out what drives you, what you value most in life and how to create a gameplan for success and fulfillment.

Today we’re going to do an exercise using this technology, that will help you see where you have blindspots in your life, and how they are holding you back from feeling as awesomely as you should.

I’ll also be coming back to this exercise through out the week, so it’s important to do it now so the rest of the videos make more sense…

So what I’d like you to do is open up a word document, and get ready to type fast…

Alright, if you’re ready, then click on the video below and come back after you do the exercise!

Ok, cool. Nice work.

Looking at what you just wrote down, after doing this with hundreds of guys now, I’ve noticed that usually the first 2-3 values you write down are the areas you are currently most focused on…

For some of you I’m sure it’s working on your game and getting the girls thing handled, for others it’s your finances, and yet others it’s trying to get your health on point, really focusing on eating healthier, and getting jacked!

But hopefully if you dove in deep enough, you found a few values that you hadn’t thought about in a while. Things that aren’t your primary focus.

You need to realize that until you are aware of and growing in every value you have, you will never be fulfilled and satisfied with the direction your life is heading.


And once you are aware of your values, it’s important to also create a vision of what you want to achieve in each of those areas, as well as WHY you want to achieve it, and create a measurable goal in each area.

I’ll go more in depth into that during the productivity video tomorrow, and if you have any other questions, write them down and join the webinar I’m hosting this Sunday January 19th at 6pm EST.

I’m going to be answering all of your questions, talking a bit about creating a better identity, as well as announcing the next enrollment of the lifestyle academy…

It’s gonna be a crazy party, so make sure to join!

And sign up today!

See ya tomorrow, I’m off to the beach. :)

Lifestyle Alchemy: How to turn Stress into Success

DSC_4737Greetings from Thailand!

I just got in to Koh Samui, and have some raging internet which makes me happy.

Anyway, this is a pretty sweet vid, and a new take on stress where I explain how you can use principle negotiation tactics to aid you in your personal development.

Sound weird? Then check out the video to learn more on the topic!

Oh yeah, so by viewing stress as a conflict, you can then bring on a whole new host of tools to help aid you in your decision making process… Pretty sick.

Also, before I go, I wanted to give a shoutout to all the guys who attended the first rendition of The Lifestyle Academy, I asked to have guys send in quick vids about their experience in the program and I compiled some of their responses in the following vid.

Check out what guys are saying about The Lifestyle Academy!

SUPER thankful for everyone who helped me out, and excited to be relaunching The LSA again in a few short weeks. It’s gonna be sick.
