How to Take Control of Your Life with the Success Secrets of a Three-time Olympian!

From the desk of Three-time Olympian Ruben Gonzalez,

Dear Friend,

What you're about to read is not for everyone. If you are satisfied with your life, if you are completely happy and absolutely content with your financial life, if you are reaching your goals, and feeling great... then this is NOT for you.

But if you feel something might be missing, or if you are looking for something that will help you reach the next level either financially, in your relationships, in your level of happiness, or if what you're looking for is peace of mind, then you're at the right place!


You're at the Right Place!

You see, when I was young, nothing in my life worked. I was lost, I didn't believe in myself, and I had no hope in the future. And then, some very special people made me understand that even though I was an ordinary person, if I would follow some specific success principles, I could accomplish extraordinary things.

These successful people taught me the proven and timeless principles of success that will work for anyone, anywhere, anytime. And I'd like to pass on those success secrets to as many people as I can.

This website will help you get all the tips, strategies, techniques, to help you:

  • Act in spite of your fear,

  • Raise your self-belief level,

  • Become more confident,

  • Take charge of your life,

  • Develop an unstoppable will,

  • Become more effective in everything you do,

  • And much more.

Once I started listening to my mentors, I went from being the kid who was never even picked to play sports in P.E. in school to competing in the Olympics - four times!

I'm the most unlikely Olympian out there. I'm not a great athlete. I'm not fast, strong, or agile. And I didn't take up the sport of luge until I was 21 years old. But by consistently and persistently following the success principles my mentors and coaches taught me, four years and a few broken bones later, I was competing in the 1988 Calgary Olympics.

By following the same principles, I was still competing in the brutal sport of luge at the age of 47 - competing against 20-year-olds. Yeah, I guess I'm the Nolan Ryan of luge!

But I was broke. A broke salesman - can you imagine that? I was a three-time Olympian and people STILL wouldn't buy from me!

How pitiful is that? I went through 20 jobs in 20 years. My wife almost left me - heck, back then, I would have left me!


My Rude Awakening...

Then, in 2002, at the age of 39, the light bulb went on. It was so obvious.... I had been applying the success principles in my sports life but I wasn't applying them to my financial life. My sports life was great, but my financial life stunk. 

You see, there are certain thought patterns that occur in sports and in business. The thought patterns that make you successful in sports will make you successful in business... and in life.

I sat down and started analyzing what had worked and what hadn't worked over the years in my Olympic quest (I have degrees in chemistry and biology, so believe me, I can analyze data). 

I read and re-read all of my notes from all of the books, tapes, and seminars. I called my coaches and mentors, I spoke with behavioral psychologists, and for about a year, I distilled all of their knowledge and created a step-by-step system.

I had the blueprint, the steps, the thought patterns, the system that had taken me from an average athlete to an Olympic athlete. The question was, could I use the the thought patterns that helped me go 90 MPH on my sled to help my business go 90 MPH?

My scientific background told me that I simply needed to test my hypothesis. You see, no matter how good a theory looks or sounds, it must be tested in the real world.

So I became the guinea pig and I started applying those steps consistently and persistently in my business.


Rags to Riches!

The results were incredible! All of a sudden, once I started following the system, my business started growing. As it did, my confidence started soaring. And I started a positive spiral that is creating a spectacular life for myself and my family. I've doubled my income each of the last four years. Yes, I'm earning MANY TIMES what I was earning two years ago.

And there's no end in sight. I expect to keep doubling my income every year for the next several years. Why do I say that? Because now I see possibilities and I hang around people that think so big it's scary. People that make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month!

You see, when you are in the valley, you can't see very far. But when you trust a mountain guide to help you climb to the top of a mountain, you can see for miles. You see that there are higher mountains to be climbed.

I used this system to climb my financial mountain and now I see there are higher mountains to climb.


Your Life Can Improve Very Quickly...

It was amazing how quickly I was able to improve the quality of my life once I made a decision to listen to an follow my mentors' advice. They taught me how to:

  • Create a "Dream Team" of people who would simply not let you quit,

  • How to create "Mastermind Groups that share priceless knowledge.

  • How the most successful people in the world set and reach their goals.

  • How to negotiate with people in a way that all your transactions become "Win-win,"

  • How to become more successful with less effort,

  • How to benefit from other people's success,

  • How to establish a dream and purpose for your life,

  • How to eliminate your self-limiting thoughts,

  • How to make the journey fun.


Success Tips If You want to Create a Fabulous Life

       Here are some other things I learned:

  • How to manage my state of mind so that I could always perform at my peak.

  • That in life there is no free lunch. You must pay the price of success or you'll pay the price of regret.

  • How to become indispensable to others by delivering more than I'm paid for. Once you develop the reputation on someone who delivers more than they are paid for, you never need to look for business. Business comes to you. I don't make cold calls anymore. I did in the beginning, but I have not made a cold call in over a year. And business keeps growing.

  • How to set up systems that automate your business so you can spend more time doing the most important things in your life.

  • How to motivate myself.

  • How to use harness the energy in my emotions to reach my goals.

  • The main thing I learned from my mentors is that I didn't even know what I didn't know. And that what I didn't know could make or break me.


Beware of Theorists

Do you know what makes me mad? It's when I see someone who reads a couple of self-help books and then they call themselves a professional life success coach. These people don't teach from experience - they just teach from theory. They don't have a clue about how things work in the real world.

They have never accomplished anything in their lives but they put together slick success systems that look good, smell good, but are a waste of your time and money.

I've talked to them. I've seen their proposals and heard their theories. Ask them what they actually accomplished in their lives. Ask them how they came up with their theories and how they used them in real life. You'll hear quite a bit of back peddling.

I've learned my lesson. I'm very careful of where I spend my money on my own training. I've made all the mistakes. I don't want you to make them too.

Your rule of thumb needs to be that you will only accept advice from someone who has "fruit on the trees." Fruit on the trees means they have done what they preach. If they haven't, run!

The fastest and easiest way to become successful is to model someone who's already successful.


All You Need is a Proven System...

My system has passed the acid test. It turned an average athlete into a three-time Olympian, an introvert into a successful keynote speaker, and a broke salesman into a successful businessman.

I want to teach you the exact ideas, strategies and techniques that helped me become financially successful and create an extraordinary life.

I'm an ordinary guy and it worked for me. If it worked for me it will work for you. Success is not about what cards you are dealt in life. Success is all about how you play your cards. It's not about how good you are. It's about how good you want to be.

Most wealthy people are not notably talented, educated, charming or good looking. They became wealthy by wanting to be rich and by following a system. That's why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

When I decided to follow the system, my life changed. I quadrupled my income and my life did a turnaround. If you follow the system, your life will change too.

You don't need a college education. You don't need money to make money. You don't need to be born in the right family. You don't need to rely on luck.

All you need is a dream, a burning desire to reach it, and the willingness to follow a proven system.


The other 90%

Successful people are just ordinary people that have figured out how to tap into their untapped potential. They have learned how to condition their subconscious mind for success. Most people are using less than 10% of their brain and their potential.

You see, you can read all the self help books you want, and you can listen to all the tapes that you want, and you can attend all the seminars. But books, tapes and seminars alone won't cut it....

Books, tapes and seminars are information. Unless you apply the information, you'll never get the results.

This system will help you tap into the other 90%. Tap into your subconscious mind. This system will teach you proven techniques that will get you to take action. After all, most people know what they should be doing. The key is getting yourself to do it. And that's that this system does. It takes you from information to implementation.

This system will get you to automatically do the things you need to do to create an extraordinary life. And it won't even seem like work. You'll be automatically doing the right things.


It's Like this...

If you were given a Formula I racing car but no manual or no training in how to drive it, how effective would you be?

Or if a Cessna pilot were given an F-18 jet but no training or manual, how effective would he be? He's probably fly it right into the ground!

You need a manual too. You have an incredible mind, coupled with gifts and talents that no one else has, but you don't have a manual! You could be flying so much higher...

You need a manual, a system that will help you unlock your hidden potential. Only then will you achieve extraordinary things in your life.

This is not rocket science. The information in this system is explained so simply that even a ten-year-old child could understand it and apply it. After all, it's just a manual for your mind.


Do You Feel You Have Accomplished all You Can?

Are you completely fulfilled? Is your life completely in balance? Do you feel in control? Do you feel confident about the future? Do you have a sense of inner-peace? Do you have a sense of purpose in your life or are you simply drifting by?

If you yearn for change, for something more, if you want to reach your full potential, like I did, then do what I did. Take advantage of this system, and learn how to be the best you can be. Learn how to create a magnificent life.

I went from a broke salesman to a best selling author, keynote speaker and entrepreneur.

I went from living a life of fear to enjoying the feeling that comes from being confident in yourself. I went from being afraid to make sales calls to picking up the phone and calling some of the most powerful people in the world. I went from listening to Zig Ziglar motivational tapes, to regularly sharing the stage with Zig in front of thousands of people.

I'm just an ordinary guy. All I did was to learn how to tap into my hidden power. And you can too. You have the power. You just need to learn how to tap into it. Once you do, you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are being your best.

I have that peace of mind and believe me, it's an incredible feeling. You can have that feeling too!



"Success is the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you did your best to become your best."


                 UCLA Coach John Wooden

The most successful coach un NCAA basketball history



It's not about wishful thinking....

Successful people are not more talented than you. They just learned how to run their brain. And that's what this system is all about. It's an easy-to-use, highly enjoyable, step-by-step program that will teach you how to run your brain.

How to get to know yourself so you can create a magnificent life - faster than you can imagine!

But it's not just going to happen. You have to get the resources. You need to take advantage of the program that will teach you the thought patterns that will help you excel in every area of your life.

You can spend the rest of your life trying to figure the thought patterns of success out through trial and error. Or you can learn from someone who's already made the errors - and is willing to teach you the secret to cracking the code of success.

This is your chance to drastically shorten your learning curve. Your chance to spend less time failing and more time succeeding.


The 95% Rule

The 95% rule says: There's a 95% chance that everything you learned about success and winning and accumulating wealth and creating a fabulous life was learned from people in the lower 95 percentile.

If that is true, and it is (if you doubt it, ask any mathematician), how do you expect to ever be in the top 5%?

That's why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The rich are learning how to succeed and the poor are learning how to fail.

Isn't it time you started getting some 5% information? Isn't it time you start getting some of the proven success information you deserve?

Well... now you can!

Hello Ruben,

"We met about a year ago when you came to give a speech.  I introduced myself, bought your tapes and told you I had just taken up rowing...after years of inactivity and 2 artificial knees.

 Well, Ruben.  I've used your tapes, I've read the inspiration you send...and I will be competing in a 100 mile kayak race September 2 and 3 on the Colorado River from Bastrop to Columbus.  I've trained hard physically since January, both in a kayak and in the gym. 

I'm in the best shape and condition I have ever been in my life.  Your tapes have helped me immeasurably with the mental toughness that I know will be required to paddle for 20+ hours. You have no idea how many times I hear your voice when I'm in the middle of Galveston Bay with 5' swells and a 20 mph crosswind!

 I know I'll finish that race and when I do...at 56 I'll be the oldest female to ever finish it!

 So thank you.  I don't know what the next year's goal will be for me...but The Lugeman will be a huge inspiration for me no matter what it is!”

You Don't Know What You Don't Know

One of the most important things I learned from my coaches and mentors is that:

You don't know what you don't know and what you don't know can make you or break you.

That's why you need to only listen to experts that can teach you from their experience. Not from theorists that blow smoke.

What do you think is the fastest and easiest way to become more successful in life? I have learned over many agonizing years of expensive trial and error, that the fastest and easiest way is to...     model someone who is already successful.

But how do you do this? How can you convince someone who is wildly successful to take their extremely valuable time to tell you and show you exactly what steps they take . . .the techniques they use . . and to tell you what works and doesn't work for them? Why would they provide you with complete information about their tricks of the trade?

Unless you have a tremendous amount of money to spend in order to hire the most successful people in the world . . you won't have access to the secrets that could skyrocket your business into an overnight success.

The thing is . . . you don't have to waste your money or your time. We've done it for you! We've discovered and tested dozens of insider techniques and strategies that will help you be more successful . . .  and in record time!

Remember...You don't know what you don't know and what you don't know can make you or break you.

The ball's in YOUR court. I challenge you to do something that will change your life. What do you have to lose? It's 100% guaranteed for a full year.
