Jaime: Welcome to Eventual Millionaire. I’m Jaime Masters. And at the moment on the present, we’ve Rock Thomas. He has a tremendous identify. You’re all the time going to keep in mind his URL @rockthomas.com. He also has had six award profitable Remax franchises plus is a serial entrepreneur plus has an entire coaching superb master thoughts. Thank you so much for coming on the present right now.
Rock: I’m stoked to be right here. I just love what you’re doing.
Jaime: Properly, it feels like we do very, very comparable things. So, inform me what your mission in life is as a result of, apparently, it’s very comparable to mine so, please.
Rock: I’ve had a number of totally different missions. Individuals are like how do you discover your function. And I feel that it modifications lots over time. The newest function that I discovered was once I was round 50, I’m 56 now, which is to help other individuals principally get out of the rat race by creating passive revenue automobiles without giving up their health or their relationships. So, we call it the whole life millionaire and the journey to turning into a 100 percenter, which signifies that 100 % of your fastened expenses are coated by money that comes in when you’re sleeping. After which, in that process, what we discovered is all of individuals’s limiting beliefs and their trauma from their childhood come to the surface.
And that’s once I rub my palms together and I get to deal with that. So, we type of trick individuals into saying we’re going to show you how to develop into a millionaire and we get to work on the great things.
Jaime: And everyone right now’s going, “Oh, I absolutely love that,” as a result of that’s type of the whole premise of the show, too. It’s about the whole life aspect of things. So, how did you come to that? Tell me somewhat bit about your story and why you pay a lot consideration to the whole life piece and never simply the money.
Rock: Properly, my father died of most cancers once I was in my late 20s and I took two years to care for him. And I misplaced what was by then 20 years of arduous work. I built up three properties. I had a relationship, a young child. I misplaced it all. I ended up back on, it sounds so cliché, on my mom’s couch in debt. However my father was good at earning profits. He was terrible at managing it. So, he had big government debt. And he commissioned or taxed me with the job of paying it off in order that his wife wouldn’t have to worry about that. So, I discovered so much about mismanagement of money, about making it isn’t the answer.
It’s about making it, managing it, and investing it. It’s about having a cash blueprint that you simply’re aware of. And because he died of cancer and colon most cancers, I began to research well being. And I noticed that there are primarily three belongings you need to care for. 1) Is you need to exercise and move your body. Our our bodies are meant to move. 2) Is what you set in your body is going to determine lots of what your physique has to do to process it. So, I eat actually, actually healthy. And the third thing is your angle. In case you are adverse, cranky, upset, pissed off, bitter, you create acid in your physique, which kills and attacks cells, which creates most cancers.
So, I assumed studying all of that at a very excessive worth, which was the lack of my father and the lack of principally every little thing I had constructed up, I’d as nicely use that lesson to train different people who there’s a better method. They usually don’t train it in class. And I have discovered via my expertise. And so, pain typically breeds passion. And that’s really where it came from.
Jaime: I really like this because one of the issues we don’t speak a ton about is how much health actually impacts your small business. And I’m a enterprise coach, too. So, I know if you truly take a look at the background of every part, the business may be okay. But once you truly concentrate to the background, if they’re not feeling okay, their business isn’t okay. And I know it’s exhausting because we often attempt to separate the two. Nicely, it’s completely totally different. I’m on the entrepreneur eating regimen. I eat each time I probably can. So, are you able to give us some recommendations on how to handle that once we already really feel so overfull in a schedule that we will’t predict?
Rock: Yeah. So, I all the time think of instruments. What’s the device that may create the transformation? Because info is in all places. You might just Google what do profitable individuals do. Properly, they get in the health club they usually work out. But that doesn’t allow you to because your story is I don’t have the time, I don’t have the cash. So, the instruments we use are what’s your morning routine and what’s your evening routine. And on Sundays, we’ve got a system where you’re taking 90 minutes to plan your week, which might embrace filling your automotive up with fuel, resourcing all the belongings you want.
And in some instances, it’s making eight salads in Tupperware with your salmon and your hen or whatever you need, that’s what I might so that you simply’re not hangry through the week. So, you’re not, as an entrepreneur, at 2:00 within the afternoon racing out to McDonald’s, spending money, eating poorly, and losing time. So, we’ve numerous little techniques that give individuals what I call the edge. And your morning routine is designed to agitate the cells of your body and your mind in a constructive means, to fire up, to prime, to get you set for the battle of the day, to convey all of you ahead.
And there are totally different methodologies we use for that, meditation, movement, journaling, reading, incantations, affirmations to set the tone. We all hold a thought in our mind. And if it’s held long sufficient with sufficient power, it will get deposited into the filing cabinet referred to as your unconscious mind. I’m lazy, I’m lazy, I’m lazy, I don’t have sufficient time, I don’t have sufficient time. It becomes your id after which, you reside into that. So, we train individuals methodologies to hold a greater thought, a better idea, a greater vision to redefine who they are. I’m an entire life millionaire. What does that seem like?
Describe it. Maintain it in your thought. Speak about it with different those that help you and then, shift who you’re over time and create a brand new end result.
Jaime: It sounds so cliché. Everyone is like, in fact, it’s the foundational stuff. We’re supposed to eat. We’re supposed to train. But are you truly doing it, individuals, proper now? As a result of no offense, I speak to lots of you. And so, I would like you to really, really open your eyes. We just had Hal Elrod here on the Miracle Morning, I’m positive you in all probability know him, again on the show. He’s a very good good friend of mine that lives here in Austin. So, he talks all about that. So, once we’re shifting into making an attempt to stick with it as a result of Hal will depart a UFC battle earlier than the primary occasion so he can go to sleep.
I’m not going to do this, sadly. I would like to see the whole event to not wake up at Three:00 in the morning. So, how can we truly – or your individuals, how do they really work out what their morning routine is?
Rock: Yeah. So, Hal is an effective pal of mine and he’s been a cornerstone of a number of the teachings that we’ve got. We train individuals the Miracle Morning. I discovered so much from Tony Robbins earlier than understanding Hal concerning the hour of power and priming. However they’re, primarily, numerous the identical ideas. And I feel that the piece that Hal talks about that most individuals, I feel, gloss over is what I might call visualization. And most of the people visualize issues in a adverse approach. It’s referred to as fear.
Rock: They consider all the issues they don’t need to have occur. I don’t need to get caught in visitors. I don’t need to work for a boss that sucks. I don’t want to have the contract not work out. I don’t need to not make love tonight. So, what you concentrate on turns into your world. So, the facility of visualization is to begin to assume and get clear on what’s necessary to you. and as you do this, you begin to appeal to it to yourself. And that’s so, again, cliché, delicate that for the person who isn’t a hungry learner – see, most people that I know like your self, myself, Hal, and other people like Tony Robbins, they look for the distinction.
They search for the quarter inch flip. They look for the little factor that most people don’t notice. I keep in mind sitting beside Tony Robbins once we have been listening to Deepak Chopra at a really personal event that I was a part of. I signed up for his platinum companion. And he was sitting there beside me, literally right beside me, tearing up the papers writing notes whereas Deepak was talking. And I used to be taking notes. And I contemplate myself an awesome scholar. But I’m taking a look at him and I’m like what am I missing. Why is he so captivated with this? And I had a chance to speak to him one on one afterwards.
And I stated, “Tony, I’ve heard you teach what Deepak was talking about. You know that already. What was going on? You were tearing pages. I don’t think you can even read it you were just were writing so fast.” And he says, “Rock, when I listen to a speaker, I’m looking for a distinction, a nuance, something that I didn’t capture before so I can take it, bring it into the cells of my body and then, share it with other people and change their life.” And I checked out him, and I went, “That’s friggin’ awesome.” And I feel that most people are like yeah, morning routine, visualization, yeah, I do know that. Not going to work.
You’ve acquired to go like oh, my God, are you kidding? Visualization? Okay, I’m going to take up meditation. I commit to it. I’m going to inform 10 individuals. I’m going to do it for the subsequent 30 days or whatever it’s and I’m going to see what occurs. I’m going to purchase all in. And that’s what creates transformation. But most individuals don’t get that enthusiastic about life because they’re brainwashed to stay a really mediocre, protected life.
Jaime: You do a very good Tony Robbins impression just as a aspect word. But what I would like to convey up although is because we are pre-conditioned as you’re saying and so one of the fascinating issues as a coach, too, is you’ll be able to notice trauma prior to now. I even advocate trauma coaches, especially whenever you bump up towards one thing and you’re like okay, this is one thing that you simply want to speak to anyone about or therapy or no matter. So, how do you perceive where that line is of hey, they’re shifting alongside of their enterprise, this can be a prepatterned factor that’s stopping them?
Rock: So, I’m a Tony Robbins coach. I’ve executed 74 occasions with Tony. And one factor that I discovered there was the seven grasp steps to change. And one of many things that neurologically works for reworking trauma, and I additionally agree with you, I send individuals to Landmark and I consider that you simply need to work with specialists in certain areas as a result of, once more, in the event you had trauma, trauma might be described as a surge of power that your system can’t handle. And it breaks stuff inside. And then, every time you return to one thing comparable, your system is broke. And it notices that and it goes I’m alone in a room with a man.
The last time that happened I received raped. Emergency lights, I can’t perform, I freak out or regardless of the case may be. I was requested to rise up in front of my class at 5 years previous they usually laughed at me because my fly was open. And now, I by no means want to do public talking once more. So, this stuff happen. What I do is I exploit the know-how in neuroplasticity or neuroscience, which is breaking individuals’s pattern and replacing and importing a new pattern. So, typically, you will have to go to it and you have to let individuals go through the shame and the anger and that course of. However typically, you possibly can just upload a brand new experience, change the which means of that occasion.
So, let’s say someone received a flat tire they usually missed a very essential appointment. Properly, you possibly can change that have by saying next time you get a flat tire, put the music up and dance like it’s 1999. And change the which means of that have as a result of that previous experience truly is lifeless and gone. You’re just replaying it. And that’s the method that I exploit.
Jaime: Do you might have any examples of this, too? Because what I found is it’s truly smaller – it’s not loopy, nutso things that you simply keep in mind that you are feeling such as you have been traumatized from. It’s like small, little issues where you’re like huh, and it comes up as you’re going via and constructing your enterprise as you recognize. You start pushing them forward. And it’s like oh, wait, there are little, small things. How do you work those out or do you have got any examples of how individuals can actually undergo that?
Rock: Sure. Have you learnt Mel Robbins, right, 5-Three-2-1- go?
Rock: I feel that it’s 10 seconds of courage that modifications your life. I’ll offer you a small and an enormous example. A small one is you’re standing in line at Starbuck’s, and you need to say hey to the individual in entrance of you, give them a praise or something, however you assume I’m going to look weird. Or you’re on the health club, and you need to say something to any person, “My God, you look really awesome. I love your biceps,” or whatever it is. I have those feelings like that guy is killing it. I just need to give the man a high 5. However he’s received his ear plugs in and I’m like I’m going to come across – he gained’t hear me.
It’s going to look weird or no matter. So, I cease. So, I feel at that second, there’s a gap that 10 seconds of braveness, say sure, determine it out later. Just take action. So, we will do these little things. The larger thing is one thing like once I was younger, my brother referred to as me pizza face as a result of I had loads of pimples. And his objective was to make himself really feel better and larger. He was shorter than me and so he needed to convey me down and make himself feel better. So, he chipped away at me. Nicely, the problem is that I repeated pizza face to myself hundreds of occasions. He recommended it, I repeated it. I seemed within the mirror day by day for an excellent 20 years and I assumed I’m ugly.
No one likes me, they’re laughing at me, they’re taking a look at my face considering that’s disgusting. And I built a mountain out of a mole hill. So, I discovered that labels are just recommendations and that for those who’re prepared to, you’ll be able to change them. So, let’s say that your mother and father prompt to you she’s shy, Jaime is shy, because in the future, you didn’t’ say anything when launched to some individuals. You have been pissed off because you didn’t have your favorite gown on. I don’t know. But she says you’re shy. And also you’re like shy? What is shy? After which, you study what shy is and you go, “Well, mommy said I’m shy so I guess I just won’t talk.”
And also you develop that label however you’re not likely shy. So, I went from pizza face to choosing an example of someone that I admired, Clint Eastwood, changed the label. And I went from pizza face to ruggedly handsome. And that turned my new id. And I wrote a ebook referred to as The Power of Your Id because of that evolution. I went from working exhausting to working sensible. I went from carpenter to sales individual. So, you’ll be able to select any new label. And should you’re prepared to just pour the power by way of your visualization, your incantations, your affirmations, your journaling, you’re experiencing it with your self.
You’re romancing a brand new a part of your self. You’ll be able to go from being boring to funny. You’ll be able to go do whatever you need for those who’re prepared to spend money on importing new software program. And that’s actually an enormous a part of what I train. You go from being someone who is an worker to an entrepreneur and an entire life millionaire. However should you don’t redefine yourself on the within, Jaime, you’ll never change on the surface as a result of the programming will come back.
Jaime: All the time. It’s a pain in the butt that we’re a lot like computers.
Rock: I do know. I do know.
Jaime: Why isn’t this simpler?
Rock: We’ve obtained to defrag ourselves and get the viruses out.
Jaime: Really. I’m a geek so yes, that’s exactly what we’ve to do. So, it’s fascinating though. You say the facility of your id. I really like that. How do you determine what to work on although? Like I would like to be the whole lot that’s better. How do you determine which ones to set up first or which path to go down?
Rock: So, in my ebook, I divide my life up into eight areas, eight gardens. Career, funds, spirituality, life type, hobbies, relationships, and so on. After which, I often every week set a aim. And I choose an space that I would like to elevate myself. So, it may be as simple as in my hobbies, I’m going to work on my tennis recreation for the subsequent 90 days and this week, I’m going to take two classes. And I’m going to work specifically on my backhand. So, it’s very useful.
However it may be that perhaps this week, I’m additionally going to be extra playful. So, given the chance, I’m going to dance or leap round or climb into my automotive from the passenger’s seat or do little things which might be playful like a child. After which, I just have that consciousness up there. So, I take a look at it like this. Your larger self, describe your self in your optimal approach. Who would you be in your greatest self? So, proper now, I play the drums however I’m studying how to play the piano. And I’m enjoying this music Shallow from A Star is Born. Have you heard that music?
Rock: And it’s a fantastic music. And I’ve spent in all probability every week, an hour and a half a day, and I’ve pretty much received it down. So, I went from not being a piano participant to being a piano player that plays a music. So, I’ve shifted my id however I set a objective and I knew I might have a commitment, go through the 4 levels of studying, advised different individuals about it so I was held accountable. And I’m now reworking to a better model of myself, which is to give you the option to play the piano. I just consider you are able to do that in any part of your life. In my e-book, I give you the 5 steps.
Nevertheless it’s actually as simple as understanding you at your lower self, which we all have where we eat those chips and we watch Netflix and we drink and we gamble or no matter we do to the higher self and saying I’ll go to there. I’ll lease some area however I actually need to stay over right here. This is the part that I’m shopping for.
Jaime: How far do you want to go? So, I set a objective to study Native American flute because that’s fascinating. And I discovered six songs. And I hit my aim and now, it kind of sits there and doesn’t actually do anything because I would like to do the whole lot. And I really feel like we will however we simply want enough time. So, how do I prioritize coming back to stuff or what goes where because I would like to be playful, too? I’m an entrepreneur that desires every part right now.
Rock: Yes. There are a few things. 1) Is, I feel, if you journal at night time, you’ll be able to ask your self a query. What do I would like? What do I actually need? And see in case you get some clarity there. We also train individuals to take this little course, I feel it’s a couple of hundred bucks, referred to as Sacred Presents. A good friend of mine teaches it. And it takes you thru – it’s the superior sort of excessive degree type of the disk mannequin or behavioral assessment Myers Briggs. However it deals with your God given skills. As an example, I’ve the talent, which you in all probability have also, which is round information and wisdom, which is a thirst for it all over the place I’m going.
You’ll catch me many occasions sitting in my front room watching a film with pen and paper in my hand for the complete film because I’m in search of the one nugget of what’s the lesson that I get. Oh, yeah, in Discovering Nemo, he went from that little space out into the ocean. I can use that as a metaphor and inform individuals where are you going out into the ocean. Look what happens. What are you lacking? You don’t know what you don’t know. And I’m like sure, that’s so good. So, I get enthusiastic about that because I’ve acquired a thirst for information. However I also have this clever counsel, which is this want to coach and to information individuals.
However what I don’t have is the present of administration. So, when papers come around me, they turn into the Bermuda Triangle. I lose shit. It’s just unimaginable. I don’t understand how I do it. I don’t eat it however it simply disappears. So, that’s why I’ve several assistants as a result of they set every part up for me because I’ve totally different skills. So, I’d say that might be an amazing thing for you to know is know what are your skills. And perhaps you might have the expertise of music otherwise you don’t. However perhaps you have got the skills of hospitality otherwise you don’t or craftsmanship.
After which, once you lean into these like once I play the piano, oh my gosh, an hour and a half can go by and I’m in heaven. And I’m doing scales. I’m doing scales and I’m okay with it. So, who would have recognized? I’m 56 years previous. What did I wait so long for?
Jaime: I’m laughing hysterically because I used to be made, not made, however I took piano lessons as a child and I just keep in mind being like I hate this, this isn’t fun. But my mother and father obtained me a piano and now, I’ve to use it. So, I used to be utterly the other. However that’s your entire point is you’ve to really discover out what actually provides you that circulate state and do extra of that, lean into extra of that.
Rock: Sure. That’s 100 %, you stated it.
Jaime: How have you learnt if you’re in move? I know we’ve received that entire caveat of time goes to nothingness. But I really feel like there are nuances to this, too. Do you discover nuances to circulate?
Rock: Yeah. I might read The Rise of Superman is a superb guide that talks quite a bit about that. I’d say undoubtedly time will get warped for positive. There’s a sense of lightness for me where I’m not nervous about things. I’m not fascinated by issues. I’m virtually not considering. I’m consciously free versus we spend a lot time considering, Jaime, as entrepreneurs. We’re considering, making an attempt to drawback clear up before it happens, and so forth. We’re in our head and in your head, you’re lifeless. So, if you’re free and also you’re in that heart that you simply’re extra childlike and also you’re more artistic and playful, all of those items, I feel, contribute to it.
Jaime: So, I do this in portray and stuff. What’s troublesome for me is to attempt to deliver it in some place else. I’m an overthinker. I’m such an overthinker and I’ve received ADD and all types of craziness happening. And I do know it’s not necessarily useful. And once I’m working with drawback solving, I really like that, too. However it goes down the trail of fear typically or it goes down the contingency plan upon contingency plan. Do you assume you will get into a circulate state once you’re in that? Or do you are feeling like it has to be like the escape and out of your head piece?
Rock: No, I feel you’re right. I feel you could be in a circulate state. I get in move state typically once I’m searching over the horizon, constructing a enterprise, and considering what are all the attainable contingency plans and things that I put together. And I get excited about that because I’m like, okay, as a pacesetter of this organization, I’m going to consider every thing that would probably occur. After which, when the hearth burns or that massive crisis happens, I’m like all right, I’m ready for that. So, I get excited about that as properly. I feel it’s a very nice distinction.
However I’d also say that what I’m more open to now’s engaged on a better degree of trusting the universe type of just like the Surrender Experiment or the Untethered Soul is how can I permit myself to be guided and be more related with the creator in order that I don’t have to do all of that considering. That I’m simply led to those solutions if that is sensible.
Jaime: I am right there with you. I would like to have Michael Singer on the podcast. So, anyone that doesn’t know what Untethered Soul is or Give up Experiment, superb books. Superb books that you need to take a look at for positive also. Let me ask you this though. You seem so passionate and so energized identical to Tony Robbins. Usually, what do you do for that? Because I’m positive the entrepreneurs listening are like he’s totally different. He simply has boundless power. He can do all the things. In fact, he can get into a circulate state. He’s not making an attempt to deal with this, that, and the opposite factor like I’m. So, give us some recommendations on how we will truly do this.
Rock: So, Rule No. 9 in my ebook is nothing has which means however the which means that you simply give it. And I’ve develop into a master, I consider, if I can so humbly say, is I exploit what’s round me. The opposite day, I used to be at the airport and the flight acquired delayed. And also you hear the announcement that the flight is delayed two hours and you’ve acquired to change gate. And I just watched the individuals as a result of I’m a individuals watcher. And I’m watching to see how individuals reply to issues. And you may see individuals stoop and individuals are like oh, no, and other people start to get their telephone occupied with all the things which might be going to cause pain of their life.
I stood up and I’m going, “Yes, I wonder who I’m going to meet.” And I stated, “There’s got to be a reason for this flight delay and I’m going to make it serve me.” So, I rise up, I start strolling down the path and who do I bump into but John Aserath.
Rock: So, those individuals who don’t know John Aserath, he was on The Secret. He’s sort of like one in every of us. He’s a guy who is into utterly neuroscience and all of that kind of factor. So, I walk immediately up to him with certainty. I had never met him before. And I stated, “John, we were supposed to meet. I can’t believe it happened.” And he’s like, “We were? Great. And you are?” And I’m like, “Rock Thomas.” And he goes, “Well, so great to meet you. Here are my two sons.” And we began this conversation. He gave me a replica of his e-book. I had him on my podcast and it was superior.
So, individuals are like how do you’ve gotten power? I choose, not all the time, I have my downs and frustrations and get pissed off and dissatisfied. The two emotions I’m working on most are pissed off and disappointment as a result of I like to assume I have excessive requirements. However for probably the most part, if I hit the golf ball within the woods, I’m like yes, a chance to find out how to hit it out of the woods. Perhaps I’ll discover 5 extra balls there. That’s cool. So, I’m making an attempt to say can I modify what just occurred. No. Do I would like to hand over my happiness because I wanted it was another means? Properly, that might be stupid.
In reality, I don’t even like that word want. I feel it’s a useless word principally. I can’t think of perhaps a very good – perhaps I wish I used to be with my liked one and I want I used to be with my youngsters right here perhaps. But even then, it’s not resourceful. It’s not coming from a spot of risk. It’s coming from a place of wishing things have been totally different. So, how do I hold my power up? For probably the most half, it doesn’t matter what’s occurring I’m on the lookout for the lesson, the present, how I can utilize that state of affairs. And trust me, I’ve had plenty of conditions that haven’t been the best way I needed them to. I’ve used it as the hero’s journey. If I might defy all of this – it’s like Tom Brady is certainly one of my heroes.
When certainly one of his great receivers goes down, there’s this shoulder stoop and stroll again to the huddle and take a look at his coach and go, okay, we’re screwed now. I’m out. Can’t you guys keep wholesome? No. He appears at it and he goes, “How do I step up? This is an opportunity for me to be a hero.” I attempt to embody that as much as potential.
Jaime: How do you practice – as a result of we had a man come on the present beforehand who talked concerning the awareness aspect. So, you’re aware of your unfavorable ideas or whatever. After which, after that reality, it appears actually annoying because now, you simply know that you simply’re crappy in your head. So, from there, how do you practice yourself to shift so that you’re each time in search of the present?
Rock: So, you really do want to perceive the steps of I feel they name it trauma or shock. The very first thing is you’re in a state of shock. You get a ticket. The police officer pulls you over. You could have an accident, the deal doesn’t undergo. The first thing you do is you go, “I can’t believe this. I was just driving to work minding my own business and I’m getting pulled over. Are you kidding me at 10:00 in the morning?” You’re in shock. The second factor is you get indignant. The police officer comes up and you go, “Officer, I’m just on my way to work. It’s 10:00. I’m a good citizen. Really? Get after the guys with the drugs. What are you talking about?”
I’m pissed, proper. So, you start to do this. And you begin the third stage is negotiate. So, you’re making an attempt to negotiate out of it. You plead with God or whoever however you’re employed on that. Then, you get the unhappiness when the police officer goes, “Hey, listen, quiet or I’ll give you another ticket. I think your plates are out of this or you have a burnt light.” And you comply with the unhappiness. He comes again and it’s $120.00 or no matter. And ultimately, a day later, an hour later, every week later, a month later, you get into acceptance. So, my objective is to not deny the emotion as a result of I feel in the event you push it down, you develop disease or dis-ease is to course of by way of it shortly.
And the best way I do that is I ask myself this query. What’s nice about this? And your brain initially will say nicely, there’s nothing great about getting a ticket. You possibly can have used that $120.00 to take your woman out for an attractive dinner. Like what? So, you’ve gotten to trick your brain. You could have to go previous the preliminary reply that the typical individual will take a look at and also you go what might be great about this.
