Great to see you. So we’re about are you Dan. I am
Dan LeFave 02:07
just west of Toronto. And in the heat. Got some good heat going on. Pretty
Mostafa Hosseini 02:13
hot right now.
Dan LeFave 02:14
Yeah, yeah. It’s typically hot. We’re surrounded by lakes. You know?
Mostafa Hosseini 02:19
Nice. Nice. Nice. Nice. Um, what’s the temperature? Like? Is it high? 30s 40s?
Dan LeFave 02:27
Yeah, it’s, it’s almost 30. So you know, all right. convert that to Fahrenheit here. 90 ish.
Mostafa Hosseini 02:34
90 ish. All right. I’m not a Fahrenheit guy. Celsius guy. So yeah, that’s pretty. It’s been pretty hot over it. It’s been a good summer. So far. I mean, Calgary, Alberta. So it’s a it’s been it’s been good. Yeah, absolutely. So, Dan, what is your story?
Dan LeFave 02:54
Well, you know, I started at least, you know, when I started when I was a kid, I worked in the family business. My dad was a butcher. So he opened a meat shop, you know, not not just, you know, it doesn’t just happen that way. But that’s what he did. Right?
So I started off being somewhat of a, you know, son of an entrepreneur at a young age, although he was an owner, operator.
And literally, you know, we did open a couple of shops, but But you know, what, that was, I think, the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey. And later on, I ended up starting a student painting business right at university. They solicited us though, you know, they they said, Hey, can we start this business, your entrepreneur, and and I was even VP communications for an entrepreneurial organization at university.
Anyway, I just, I just dove right in and I started that business didn’t really succeed that much, you know, I could I broke even more or less. But you know, from there, I ended up going into corporate and didn’t like that I was there, maybe a year or so or whatever. And then my brother was starting a business. And we started talking and he had built it up to maybe a couple $100,000. And I jumped on board with him. And it was a construction business where I was Telecom, ended up working in the field that first sprained my thumb within the first week or so.
Not Not, not intentionally, but I sprained my thumb and I ended up in the office and ended up running that business with him. And we took it to seven figures in a few years. But then we weren’t seeing eye to eye so I ended up getting recruited, I got a project management position for $25 million dollar project, I ended up doing real estate negotiations for another wireless telecom company and and then I ended up doing real estate for the largest landlord in Canada, and residential landlord, but I did the commercial real estate for them.
But you know what, all that was happening. And I was doing well, and it was making lots of progress in CFOs, and so on were, you know, giving me all sorts of accolades and so on, but just wasn’t working for me. And so I ended up taking a parental leave, which was phenomenal. I had 36 weeks And I was off on this parental leave.
And I was thinking about going back, what am I doing? What am I going back to the commute, the hours, the, you know, the demands, all that, you know, is that really for me, and then I ended up going back reluctantly and I got recruited afterwards because I didn’t even want to be there. I went to this other company, they paid me more and, you know, gave me a director position and all this and, but then it hit me.
And it actually was perfect timing. They called me in on the 90th day and said, probationary periods here, and you’re done. You’re fired. And it was a first time in my life, first time ever, but that kick was what I needed. That was just, you know, the kick in the butt I needed. I basically started doing some soul searching, I’m great at, you know, saving money, so I didn’t need to go and get another job. And I wasn’t willing to, but I ended up doing a bunch of soul searching.
And it led me to jumping into a business that I didn’t really even like it was multilevel marketing. But I did it because I said a prayer and a friend of mine and you know, friend’s father answered, and the next day answered that prayer. And I went on a six month journey of trying to figure that out. But then a good friend of mine gave me Augmon dinos work that 10 scrolls, and studying reading those scrolls every single day.
That led me to learning about Augmon Dino that led me to look up Dave Blanchard, who’s the CEO of Augmon, Dino Corporation. And I was flying to Salt Lake City to go to an event in Provo, Utah. I ended up finding out where Dave Blanchard lived. He’s in, he’s around Salt Lake City, I ended up emailing him and said, Can we have a coffee? And he said, Well, when do you fly in and out? And I told him, he said, Come and stay at my house.
Dan LeFave 06:46
Alright. And then that was where the coaching seed was planted. At the end of that evening, he said, we said a few things. And I asked him, you know, show me where you work and do your magic in your office and, and we talked and he said, you know, Dan, I think you’d make a great coach. And so I went home with that thought in my mind. And then a friend of mine was studying Bob Proctor stuff. I bought all of his courses.
And then she said next time, she says, Well, why don’t you talk to his team? And then I get on the phone with his team. And within 20 minutes, he says, well, let’s get Bob on the phone. Mike, I don’t know who Bob Proctor is so sure. You know, why not? And it’s that evening, remember, I went to a meeting for that multilevel marketing company.
And then soon after, I was on a call with Bob, and he sold me on becoming a coach. He said, You know what, you know the impact you can have and things you can do, you can teach. I was studying Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra. I studied all these great leaders through their books. But then I was being given an opportunity to get coached by one of the guests best guys, I found out he was Bob Proctor’s pretty big. And one of the best guys teaches program.
And so I said, Yes, but then I did that for a few years. And then I started learning around things, set up my own system, my own wrote my own book, co authored books, which I can’t feel Denis Waitley and Deepak Chopra. And I just kept stepping forward and saying, yes, yes, yes.
Yes. And, and today, I have my own programs, ma’am systems, my own coaching and clients all over the world. And so so that’s, that’s been my journey. But it was all about saying yes, I said, Yes. Almost everything. It felt scary.
Mostafa Hosseini 08:20
Love it. Love it. We have some things in common here. I started a painting company when I was in school, and it didn’t last long. We, yeah, we we basically got wiped out with the crash of 2008 when I was going to school, and I was actually listening to Bob Proctor this morning. this very morning, as I was driving around. I love him. He is.
He’s really good. I love the stuff that he did his personality and what he’s done. And I think we both read most of this stuff. All the greats and all the leaders out there,
Dan LeFave 09:00
huh? Yeah, yeah, he’s he’s amazing teacher, I grasp everything I could hung out with him, went to his house, you know, had had all sorts of great interactions with him, but
Mostafa Hosseini 09:11
to Bob Proctor’s house. Oh, yes. Yeah. Out in Toronto.
Dan LeFave 09:15
Yeah, he’s not he’s not too far away. So that was one of the one of the first things he said, he said, get started, learn my system, get certified, and come and see me in a few months. And so we did that my wife and I went over and we had three hours in his backyard sipping tea and taking lots of notes.
Mostafa Hosseini 09:30
A great guy. I just love his energy. The guy he’s like, is he 87? Now? Somewhere there? Yeah. And he’s like, he has more energy than a lot of 20 year olds that I know. Yeah. I love it. I love it. Actually, this morning.
Um, I saw I saw him speak for like a good hour on YouTube. And I follow him. He’s a good guy. So that’s amazing. So what do you do now? And who do you serve?
Dan LeFave 09:59
My Businesses coaching. So I do business coaching. And I serve entrepreneurs that are scaling to 7 million or more seven plus figures. So they have existing businesses, they, it’s profitable, they have a small team of people.
And they need to make some changes to scale. So they’re doing roughly around half a million dollars. They’ve tried lots of things, they’ve struggled, they’re not coming to me, if I’m not the first person to help them. I just can’t be I, I know that if they came to me and I started giving them the tasks they had to do, they would probably say, No, I’m not ready for that.
They need to have struggled, hit bottlenecks, and just, you know, really frustrated, huge frustration, high motivation. And they wanted to scale because they want something more, they typically want more freedom, and they just don’t know what to do to get it, they they’re operating their business, they just don’t realize. And interesting, they’re stuck in that, that cycle of operating and micromanaging and watching over people and making sure everything is done right, without getting the right team.
And if until they get a self managing team, they will not be able to carve out time for themselves or family. And it’d be this 12 to 16 hours cycle of working every day. And it’s exhausting.
Mostafa Hosseini 11:16
So is there any specific industry that you’d like you prefer to work with?
Dan LeFave 11:20
Well, it’s online entrepreneurs. There, they’re more like, I’m well versed in that I’ve studied a lot of marketing and online business. So I understand that intimately. And also, digital agency owners. And I didn’t even choose that group.
Really, it just I looked historically back at who I was serving, and I was like, but there’s a lot of agency owners in my environment. And you know, and people that are super action oriented, really, really worked well. So the industry is agency owners, and entrepreneur, online entrepreneurs, but also people that are really action oriented. And I called you know, there’s people that are categorized as fire signs, Sagittarius, Aries and Leos.
Just historically, they are super action oriented, I don’t want to push them, I can give them the guidance, they take the steps and climb the mountain together, and they get the results they want.
Mostafa Hosseini 12:11
Love it. So online entrepreneurs, digital agency owners, and that to people that are just mainly working online. That’s right. What do you find is the biggest problem for entrepreneurs when they’re trying to gain momentum in their business? What are some of the issues they’re experiencing?
Dan LeFave 12:30
Well, there’s tons of distractions. And that’s so we’re talking about today, avoiding that, because here’s the thing, there’s three parts, and you talk about the confidence, right? So before we gain confidence, what do we do?
Well, we take a lot of action. So that’s, that’s, you know, that you have to, you have to basically take tons of action to test try things, right. So, you know, so that’s the, that’s the first step they have to do. I mean, the confidence is eventually going to build into courage. And so there’s these three steps. So comprehension is what we need.
So we need to take a lot of action try things testings, be bold, be brave. Right? And so how can you do that, if you’re distracted all the time. And guess what? We know, through research that people are distracted most of the time. In fact, we’re mostly habitual, like about 90% habit now. So if you think about 10% of your day, and not all in one chunk, so not a few hours, usually it’s little bits here and there of time.
So unless you can get inside that gap, and I call a habit cap, and do some actions, take do some creativity, do something that’s going to move your business forward, then it’s nothing but habits and distraction. So what do people do when they have free time? Pick up the phone, this thing’s gonna have something in it that’s gonna keep me motivated, and excited and get my dopamine going, you know?
So that’s, that’s unfortunately, where people go. But if you can just program things into that time where you can do some learning or do some do something that’s advantageous for your business. Yeah, that’s not just the busyness because that’s what people do. They just keep busy, busy, busy, busy, busy, busy. And if you ask them, Hey, how’s your like? crazy busy? Well, why? You know, it doesn’t have to be.
How about blocking off chunks of time for yourself, you know, early in the morning is really, really good morning routine. I wouldn’t trade that for anything. And anybody who has one knows the value of that, because if you’re going to take some heat during the day, you might as well start it by applying it to yourself in the morning. Get something in Yeah. So good.
Mostafa Hosseini 14:39
So just to recap, what would you say are the biggest problems with when it comes to to the momentum? The free time that didn’t manage well, and then
Dan LeFave 14:51
well, it’s again, it’s it’s distraction. There’s so much that is distracting us. Okay. Fortunately, I I learned that early on. So if my phone does anything right now, it’ll be a phone call or text message. And that’s it. So if it’s urgent, that’s how I that’s how I get notified. Otherwise, every other notification pop up, everything shut off, like off off off. And people know how to reach. My voice message says, I check messages couple times a day. But if this is urgent, text me, then they have to decide how urgent is that matter?
You know, so, so it’s just removing that little bit of distraction that can, like every client I work with, they get back time, right away, like an hour a day, or two hours or 10 hours a week. And like, right away, they we find time, because time is our greatest commodity. So what are we doing with it? You know, how we’re using it. And you know, we only control what, you know, comes between birth and death. So, you know, what do what do we do with that? And just tracks distractions, they’re all the time, there’s going to be lots of things.
I mean, if you have family, like you, and I do, you know, right things come up, or they ask you something, or can you open this jar of sauce, or some, you know, all sorts of little distractions. And if you start adding up that time, it can become pretty big. And then you realize, hey, my time is being poured out everywhere.
I don’t really have any time where I do things that are constructive for my business, the business building aspect of business development, because nobody can grow a business unless they do the development. If they’re caught in the cycle of operating it. That’s that’s an owner operator, that’s not an entrepreneur, this is a great distinction.
Mostafa Hosseini 16:38
Do you feel that over the past since the pandemic has started, people’s distraction levels have gone up?
Dan LeFave 16:48
Yes, and I’ll explain why. And again, I’ll explain the brain science behind it. So when this situation hit, everybody sort of went into shock mode. I went to Costco and I basically lined up for hours trying to get food. But, you know, everybody went into this, this, you know, me first mentality. Yeah, get ready, go shop and get food stock up. You know, we don’t know how long the papers stay clean toilet paper. That was that was really hilarious.
At one point. But here’s the thing. Everybody went into what I was called survival mode. So they went into their survival instinct, which is, me first. I go, I, you know, I’ll jump out in front of you on the road in my car. Why couldn’t be first, you know, button from the lion. Me first. It’s just people went into that, that state. And it’s normal. It’s just natural and normal for us to do that. So they went into that state. And then they also, you know, started started, you know, feeding themselves information, trying to look for solutions and so on. But here’s, here’s the real key.
Everybody got really emotional. So, as emotions were getting bigger, and more challenging. Yeah. Intelligence goes down. Yeah. Motions up intelligence down. So guess what? Now it’s like, you know, what am I gonna do? What do I you know, I’m not going to an office anymore. Or I’m not leaving my house and meeting people. And I don’t have all these other distractions. I have all this extra time. So what do I do I fill it with something, you know, so they fill it with entertainment? Well, what’s the easiest entertainment out there? It’s a device full of information, or it’s the refrigerator in the pantry. So, you know, so everybody got distracted with those things. And then you hear things like the COVID 15. I’m like, What’s that? Right, because I don’t get it.
I was like, I fast. You know, fast from morning to tonight. Between evening and breakfast, like, I have no clue what that 15th You know, I thought maybe they taken off 15 pounds, maybe they’re not eating. But no, it was putting on 15 pounds. And I just couldn’t relate to it. I was just like, you know, what, what do we need that for?
But that was going on, emotions went really sky high. Intelligence went down, distraction, boom, FreightCenter devices, entertainment, food, all those things right. And just and people just totally got gobbled up into that. And you can see it now and they’re all tied trying to run it off now.
Mostafa Hosseini 19:22
Absolutely. Absolutely. What are your couple of maybe a couple of your go to tips to reduce distractions these days? Because I find myself that my own attention span is severely down. Like I find myself jumping around too much because I’ve been in front of a computer for way too long. And what are your some tips for the listeners or people who are watching could take and start applying today to reduce distractions?
Dan LeFave 19:54
Well, first thing everybody should do is do what I was saying earlier which is shut off There’s no to be like, shut off the old notifications, and then write down one or two that you actually need to pay attention to things that are critical to your life in your business. Some people that might be email because they need to see when things come in, and it’s timely.
You know, there’s, there’s, there’s a timeframe that they need to respond by or something, you know, if it’s somebody saying, Hey, I’d like to have a chat with you, and you respond next day, they might say, I found somebody else.
So, you know, but first of all, get all that turned off, turn it off, and then figure out what are the one or two things are that are essential is to leave on and that’s it. Yeah, the other thing is to plan your day in advance, not just and not just, you know, like a to do list, like a long laundry list, no, just three things, three things that are going to move your business forward, they could be income driven, they could be impact, or influence driven, those are the three categories that you can assess based on your business where you are, if you need to generate income, then make sure those actions are going to lead to you earning income.
And also, you should have something in there for your health and well being. So three things that you will do up to three, that you will do for yourself, for your health and well being. And then for your relationships, whether it’s family or friends, or whatever it might be. So you have that social aspect, just three things per day, but do them the night before. And the reason being is because not because, you know, you’ll hit the ground running.
But that’s, that’s one reason. The other reason is, as you sleep, your show your conscious mind shuts off subconscious mind turns on. Now it has something to marinate and percolate. Otherwise, it’s gonna it’s going to take whatever the day’s activities were, and just put it put that into a dream and, and spew something out. movie in your mind.
So the day before planet, set those objectives. And I’m going to give a tool, which we’ve talked about, I’m going to give a tool which will help you do that. Because if you don’t corner yourself and do those things, guess what?
Distraction creeps in, you don’t get things done, you don’t develop the confidence, and then the cost and the courage and your life in the business just stays the same. So yeah, so So that’s, I think the critical things planet, but then do morning review of what your intentions are. And even if you’re open to it, speak out loud what you want in terms of those attention, intentions. Just talk about what you want for today. Yeah, for your day.
And it could be, let’s say, I’m reading a book, say, Okay, I’m gonna sit down, today, I got a block of time at 1pm, I’m gonna sit down, I’m going to do the writing of my book, it’s going to be clear and crisp, my mind is gonna be fresh and alert. And I’m going to get that done. And it’s going to be awesome. I’m going to write, you know, maybe 1000 words or more. And I’m, I’m gonna wrap it up at two, and I’ll be done. Boom, you program your mind for the potential.
When you go to do it, get it done.
Mostafa Hosseini 22:52
Alright, so let me do a recap on what you just explained. First of all, turn off the push notification on your phone. Because that’s the number one distraction, what I do personally, is actually putting my phone on silent.
So when I’m working, because it’s always dinging and making noise, and you know, pop ups and all that that’s a very big distraction. And what else I loved about you mentioned that you should plan for the day coming the night before, and go into sleep with those three things in mind is like, again, as you mentioned, are my brain working on it overnight.
So when we get up in the morning, we know what we want. And the fact that we know what we want, gives us that confidence. Because confidence is a comes with a part of what am I trying to say here, knowing what we want to do gives us confidence. It’s the lack of knowing what we what we want to do, or what we need to do that cuts down our confidence because we’re in no man’s land, basically. Right? So I really love that advice of reduce distraction of your phone by turning off your notifications, and then plan the night before and have your mind work on it while you sleep.
Well, can you touch quickly on some people think our brain doesn’t work when we’re sleeping? So can you give us a little rundown on how that works?
Dan LeFave 24:18
Well, let’s just qualify that for a second. So if it wasn’t working, we would die. So basically, all of our automatic systems are breathing or eyes blinking or digestion, all that stuff is all done by the hard drive in your mind, which is known as the subconscious mind. It’s running it. It’s a hard drive. It’s it’s like a huge engine room and information system. It’s running everything.
And so it’s always running. And in fact, research has shown that 96 to 90% of our results, behaviors and actions are originated in that part of our mind in that harddrive. Everything else conscious which is based on what we’re seeing. It’s based on our senses. So, so here’s what happens at night, though, what happens is we go on conscious, so our conscious mind basically shuts off.
So the noise is not there anymore, thank God. So then our subconscious mind can do the work it can, it can rejuvenate us, or we might have a dream that’s, you know, that kind of a fancy or something that gives us some insight or something valuable bit of information. I think dreams are always providing us information. So, and I remember all of them, you just have to train yourself to wake up and and refresh your mind. Yeah, yeah, it’s not that hard.
I mean, at first it was it was a question of waking up, and then and then something would be there just lingering and you, you have to do just take yourself remember, remember, you close your eyes. Remember, remember, remember, remember to say those words, and then that dream will pop in and you replay it, sometimes you write it down, you’re like, What was that all about? What did I need to know that for? And ask some questions around it?
So yeah, definitely our subconscious mind. I mean, it is hard harddrive, you know, we’ve wouldn’t run our computer on RAM memory, yet, we try to run our lives on it. So, but our hard drive is really running the show. It’s all of our beliefs, our habits, our experiences, all those things all balled into one, it has power, but no direction. So that’s why when you give it direction at night, it can do something in the morning, you get you hit the ground, sometimes you wake up, sometimes I wake up three or four.
And I’m like, Man, my mind buzzing, and whatever that thing was, needs to be poured out someplace. So I put it down, I recorded or you know, to speak it or record it put in text or write it down. And then I get to it the next day. And
Mostafa Hosseini 26:41
yeah, love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Um, what about time management? I mean, a lot of us over the past year and half. I mean, we were we were poor time managers to begin with. And then the pandemic hit us. And now we are dealing with stress, we’re dealing with staying at home. I mean, it’s slowly getting back to normal, but it’s still me.
I mean, we’re still in a pandemic, and and not seeing our people not doing the normal life. And I don’t think we’re doing a great job of managing our time with business owners, what do you think are some of the biggest mistakes that we’re doing with respect to time management for business owners? Maybe specifically?
Dan LeFave 27:34
Well, I don’t think we I don’t think most business owners are using it objectively. They’re not thinking broadly about, you know, what, what do I need to accomplish? And by when and, and then having a plan and tracking their actions? I don’t think anybody does that. Hardly, there’s probably a tiny percentage of people that do.
So basically, you know, nobody’s treating time like a commodity. I mean, if we did, we’d really be, you know, concerned about somebody knocking on our door, that if we go answer it, they’re going to take up five minutes of your time trying to explain something that we don’t even need. So don’t even don’t answer, right. Like, that’s just time wasted.
So, you know, I mean, if you think about it, if somebody is watching two hours of television, every single evening, five days a week, let’s say that’s 10 hours. Yeah, blame that could be used for something else. I had a client like that. And she’s like, well, I don’t have any spare time. And I said, Well, what do you do with you? What do you do? In the evening?
Two hours a TVI? Well, that’s 10 hours a week. Can you cut that out? Is it valuable? What are you learning? Is there any education? No. Is it pure entertainment? I said, Well, do you need it? No. Okay, there’s 10 hours, we got just right away, boom. And so, you know, the management of time. I mean, we don’t manage time, per se, we manage our actions. So it’s a question of, What actions are we going to take that are going to produce the results that we’re looking for.
And it’s very clear when we take actions that are frustrating, and aggravating, and don’t produce the kind of results that we’re looking for. And we know it, you know, I had one client that was devoting 10%, she had 10% of our revenue coming in, that was taking up probably 80% of her time in our business. And right away, I just said, Okay, well, can you drop that off?
Because as soon as you drop that you can make more space for the types of clients you want and income and the frustration just disappears? Yes, like, well, let’s get rid of it, dump it. You know, so people don’t think like, like in terms of time being a commodity, and our actions compounding, like those are counterintuitive ways of thinking, you know, our thoughts are compounding our actions are compounding.
So, if every day we wrote for 15 minutes, you could theoretically have an e book 10 to 15,000 page or are a word ebook not page 10 to 15,000 word ebook. In a matter of months or weeks, just by writing incrementally, we don’t realize the value of those tiny little actions. We think that we need to sit down and really poor, you know, a whole weekend Crash Course.
Mostafa Hosseini 30:20
Have the stars online, perfect weather my cup of coffee sitting by the beach to breathe from the ocean coming in. And that’s the perfect moment where I start writing. That’s never
Dan LeFave 30:33
if you’re on the beach, somebody goes by and does something. And you know, they’re kite surfing. Oh, that’s cool. And then you’re distracted, and you’re off on that tangent. Maybe I can go talk to them. Yeah.
Mostafa Hosseini 30:42
I can’t wait for a moment of silence again for another six months.
Dan LeFave 30:48
Yeah. So you know, so it’s about limiting and constricting. That’s what it is. You know, and it’s not, it’s not about making your life difficult. Or it’s just about limiting and constricting, so that you give yourself no way out. So that if you say, I’m going to do this thing, and I’m going to write this book, or I’m going to create this program, I’m going to sit down, and I’m going to give its focus attention over a certain period of time, and measure that each and every week and look at the evidence.
I mean, here’s the thing, if we take, if we set our objectives, take action, look for evidence, guess what, we’ll end up feeling good, because we took action, we got some things done, you’re not going to beat ourselves up, we’ll see it like it’s literally there in front of us.
So we will see the results. And we will see the results. We feel good. Guess what? That’s just thought good feelings are just thoughts moving through our bodies are like, Oh, that was really good. I got I got 1000 words done. Amazing. I, you know, I’m, I’m 1/10 of the way there, you know, boom, right? And if you have accountability built in even better, because somebody else is going to pat your back even more so than you would because we just don’t do that very well, for ourselves.
Mostafa Hosseini 32:02
Absolutely. I love a few points that you mentioned there one was the daily incremental action of say 100 words a day. Is that what you mentioned? Or 1000? Words?
Dan LeFave 32:13
Oh, I don’t know. 1000 words sounds like even if
Mostafa Hosseini 32:17
I mean, daily incremental actions, like over time, it adds up. Right? And I, my My example is, my kid is five years old, and I give him $10 A week. Right? It adds up really quick. The kid shows up one day, and he has like a couple $100 in his jar.
And he’s like, Yeah, I’m gonna buy a bicycle with this. I’m like, wow, that added up really quick. And it’s only 10 bucks a week. And we don’t really give enough credit to, or we think it’s too small. But when we do it consistently, like you said, on a daily basis, a small amount over a span of a month or two. Like, we have book.
Dan LeFave 33:06
It compounds that’s nothing compounds. And people don’t realize the value of compounded effort. On it actions. Yep, no. And compounded thoughts. Even deeper, right? Our thoughts will compound like I use this as an example which you let’s say you, you’re talking with your wife, you’re like, Hey, let’s go for dinner. Right? And it’s the beginning of the week, but you’re going to going, you’re going on the weekend. So you start talking about, well, you know, this is why I approach it. I say, well, where Don’t you want to go?
What food Don’t you want is just process of elimination. You know, so you ask the question, what don’t you want, and then you start narrowing that down, you figure out what it is. And then, you know, at least for the woman more so than demand, she’s probably going to think what I’m going to wear and how I’m gonna do my hair and all this kind of stuff.
And the kids need a babysitter, or whatever. All these kinds of thoughts are coming. Those are compounded thoughts. Eventually you end up at the restaurant, the child is with the babysitter, and you’re enjoying yourself, and you got the result you want. But those thoughts compounded. We don’t think of everything like that. But it’s exactly that way.
We need to put the attention into the thoughts that we want, and then they will come up. It’s our great, it’s, I think thoughts are our greatest currency besides time. You know, I think we don’t control time. But you know, our greatest currency to manage time is to manage our thoughts.
Mostafa Hosseini 34:27
Love it. Can you expand on that more? Tell us what you mean?
Dan LeFave 34:32
Certainly. Well, again, I’m you know, the topic here is that thoughts compound, and it’s a currency, it’s an investment. So no matter what, we can always connect the dots looking backwards in our lives. And so if we could connect the points of, you know, let’s say the biggest milestones, we realize that the thoughts, the meetings, the conversations, the bits of information, the courses have all led up to that we can argue with that. Right?
So, ultimately, everything starts with a thought, you know, like, if you’re sitting on a chair, somebody in the woods one day, like, Hey, we should turn that stump into something a little bit cleaner and more versatile, it’s pretty heavy to carry around. Right? So that’s where it starts, everything starts with a thought.
So why don’t we manage our thoughts better, and focus them in on what we want. And, and when we do that, then we’ll look back and how they compounded and added up to the results that we got. I mean, if we got a bad result, then we should look back to the, you know, the things we were doing in our thoughts that we’re having, and, and the kinds of things we were saying, you know, if we can tune into that, then we can realize how powerful our thoughts are. And they are their value, most valuable currency.
I mean, there’s, it’s written everywhere, you know, Thoughts become things. There’s a lot of sayings out there that you know, Emerson and the Bible and all these places, you know, that thoughts become things, you know, and when we get more control over that, man, life can really look a lot better. And things could get a lot
Mostafa Hosseini 36:15
better. Absolutely. Speaking of staying focused, which is, I think, a big problem. Always, what are some of the myths around staying focused? And what are some of the mistakes that business owners are making about and around staying focused?
Dan LeFave 36:33
Well, you know what, here’s, here’s where the problem originates. And unfortunately, this and this is not an indictment against the school system. It’s just that it’s not taught in school, the teacher says, face bright, pay attention, and you’re like, Okay, I better be obedient.
Otherwise, I’m going to be humiliated, but it’s not taught how to focus. So then, and then what do you got in your life and you’re doing things and, you know, that’s why the watercooler joke is so potent and so so. So meaningful because people hanging around the watercooler talking and wasting time and right, you know, they’re not focused, right? They’re bored.
So what happens? So? So that’s the core thing. Boredom? Is the is the antithesis to focus. People get bored, why challenges too high or challenge is too low? That’s usually what it is. Right? It’s like, oh, this is really difficult. Okay. Gotta be something in a pantry that’ll you know, solve that tastebuds. Right, I can eat my emotions, I can eat my problem, right.
And then I don’t have to focus on this thing that I don’t know how to do. So that’s when the challenge is too high. When the challenge is too low, you’re like, Oh, my God, accounting, if I have this here anymore, and type these numbers in or whatever, look at this stuff in the spreadsheets, I’m going to tear my hair. Again, challenge to low board and kicks in, focus has gone boom, off on a distraction path that you may not come back on, like, Whoa, how many hours was that on Tony Robbins videos? You know, three hours, boom, gone. Can’t get it back. Right. Focus.
Mostafa Hosseini 38:14
Absolutely. Good stuff. Dan, can you tell us about your gift, the productivity system?
Dan LeFave 38:22
Absolutely. Well, this focus productivity system, I will give full credit to the folks that wrote the book, the 12 week year, I studied that book, I read it 30 times, and really went deep on it. Did you
Mostafa Hosseini 38:34
read it? 30 times? Absolutely.
Dan LeFave 38:37
I’m gonna there’s a somebody who lives in your area. He and I have been reading like this, we read a book like this by studying and reading a chapter every month, the same one for 30 days. And we study books like this we’ve been doing for 10 years now. And so we’re not that we’re unstoppable. On the 31st day, we do a review of the book and summarize that on Zoom and share that out with our folks. But yeah, we read it 30 times.
And see because this is an information center. We’re putting this information in about 12 week year and being focused and productive and all this. So we’re putting it in putting it and put it in put, we could put an ad and guess what, I started wondering, well, I need to apply this.
No, it’s too good to not so I went looking around, I found a sample that somebody had created based on what they learned in the book, I took it, I created a mastermind with somebody else, they improved it, I joined and then I moved into another mastermind and they improved it and and it kept getting approved, improved all the way along until now.
We have a nice big dashboard and you know we can see performance you can see where your health and well being is versus your relationships versus your business and or your career. And so it’s it’s a system that I call a distraction removal machine.
And it is also a procrastination killer. It because you don’t here’s the thing We know through science and psychology, that people hate humiliation, they don’t want to be humiliated. It’s, it’s, it’s almost as big as fear or fear of death. Right? It’s, it’s there. So guess what this system has accountability bit built in.
So you set your intentions, you choose the actions that you’re going to going to take only actions that you control, because anything else can’t be done 100%. So it has to be 100% owned by you. And those are the actions that you’re going to take.
They’re specific to a date and time. And as long as you took them, you can mark them done. And then every week, you have that accountability call. And you have to show up and discuss why certain things were done. And then that’s where the evidence is. So if Tony Robbins mess somebody up and they went and watched a bunch of his videos, they’re going to put that in, in their notes. That’s going to be a comment. got distracted?
Watch Tony Robbins videos did do my task. Okay, good. So then now we know what’s breaking down, what’s not working, so that we can fix it. Okay, so what got you on Tony Robbins videos? Well, I went off on Facebook, and then I saw something. Okay, well, great. Now now we know what to do. Facebook is off permanently, unless you need to go on there and share something. Right? So there’s, there’s fixes, you can have fixes.
So this system is all about courting yourself accordingly yourself. And doing specific actions over a week, measuring performance, looking for evidence, finding the breakdowns, having accountability built in somebody who will tell you the truth. I mean, the truth is, is really powerful, but it’s painful at first. But and it will piss you off. But once you know the truth about what you’re doing and your actions, and you can see your performance, then you can make some little course corrections.
So we need that. Because if you look at let’s say, you know, any athlete, you know, Olympic athlete, Michael Phelps, you know, we can see is That’s right, we can look at all the history of his stats. And in fact, he won those gold medals. In practice. He just had to show up and do the same thing at a competition. Yeah, yeah, that’s right. So so it was all about the practice, practice, practice, practice, practice. But we can see all the stats for his practice, we can see all the stats of his competitions. And we can see all the stats that led him to gold medals, because all the information well, I’m not I don’t know, but I’m just saying, if let’s say I have access to it, I know his coach or something if I knew his coach, and I can see that, right.
So let’s say we had all that data, we can definitely connect the dots we can see, well, it’s no wonder, like, there’s no question this, this guy went on a drinking binge and became an alcoholic, you know, he couldn’t screwed up his career. Right? So all that tells the truth, right? No stats, no results, we don’t, you know, this, we need to measure our performance and see what we’re doing. Otherwise, we lie to ourselves, we’re really good at that.
Because, you know, we, we don’t own up to things, you know, people who go to weight loss, I’ve had people that own weight loss clinics, and they said, you know, the person would look themselves in the mirror and say, well, not so bad, you know, only 75 pounds extra, you know, could have been, could be worse, or worse before, whatever.
So, you know, this is a, this is a lie detector, it’s a way to tell the truth and get things done and measure performance. I’ll just add to this. I’m not just, you know, putting this out there and saying, Hey, try it. It’s been used. I’ve seen clients go from 12 to 16 hours a day, working six days a week, to three hours a day, and bored, not knowing what to do, right.
And then that’s where the that’s the opportunity for business development right there. But 12 to 16 hours, there was a lot of other things done in there though, team building and setting up systems and, and standards for her team and herself.
And so, but that, you know, once we did all that work, plus use the system, she ended up going down to three hours and a little bit bored. And I’ve seen other people go from a few $1,000 a month in income to $25,000 in a short in about six months, which seems like it’s really a stretch, but guess what, everything was dialed in everything.
The focus the clarity, the actions, measuring performance, owning up to their actions or inactions, and making little course corrections. I mean, if you think about it, if you set up conditions that are going to help you get the results, you set yourself up to win. You can’t lose like that’s, you know, it’s either played a winner or play not to lose, right?
Not using the system I think is playing not to lose when you play not to lose your stand a chance of losing because you’re kind of on the fence. But when you play But when? Right then it’s all about, what are you going to do? What actions are you taking own up to your inactions or inadequacies and make little adjustments. And as you make those little course corrections, then you become a better version of yourself. And you end up living a better life.
You feel good about it, you tell people about it. And then is it becoming your new narrative? Which is ultimately what you need? You need a new narrative for your life. Otherwise, what do you do you compare yourself against your, your self? Yeah, yep, yep.
Mostafa Hosseini 45:31
So again, if you’re watching or listening to get Dan’s gift to focus productivity system, go to Le Fe coaching.com, forward slash focus day, and I’m going to spell it out, let’s say coaching is L E, F, A, V as in Victor E coaching.com. Forward slash focus days with an S at the end. So L E, F, A, AV e coaching.com, forward slash, focus days.
Dan LeFave 46:00
And just imagine turning distraction into discipline, like, you know, turning distraction into discipline, focus, that’s what the system does, if you’re willing to do the work, love it.
Mostafa Hosseini 46:13
Now, gang, if you want a working effective system that will help you achieve what you will normally achieve in a year and you want to do it in three months, go to this focus productivity system, download Dan’s gift here, get access to it, reach out to them, and he obviously knows what he’s doing. I mean, if once you read a book and read a system and study for 30 times, I’m guessing you would know what you’re doing.
I mean, people glance at something and they think they know it, and they start claiming all sorts of things. Well, once you read a system and study for 30 times, you you would know it all inside out. So my suggestion, download the focus productivity system and go on the fake coaching comm forward slash focus days. So Dan, I can ask you some personal questions. Go ahead. What’s one new thing that you tried recently,
Dan LeFave 47:13
one new thing wouldn’t be fasting, because I’ve been doing that for a while now. Oh, um, I guess you could say this is new. So I’m a big fan of consistent and persistent practice. So I like you know, I just, I think differently for I think, for the average person. So I decided that I wanted to build my muscles in my body in a certain way.
So I started doing some research. And, and, you know, part of that I was doing push ups anyway, and I just do a push up for every time every lap, I went around the sun, you know, every year I’ve been alive. And so that’s just I just make it a little objective that way. But lately, I decided to implement, you know, what this guy, you know, this guy’s cut that was on this video on this YouTube.
Okay, dude, he’s doing right. And then he gives us these exercises, which are pretty challenging, right. And, you know, I didn’t, I didn’t add on any more to what I’m doing. But I’m just doing them differently. And so I’m definitely feeling it now. Like, when I do his, you know, I basically do the two parts that he shared with respect to push ups, and then I do my own.
And then when I get to do my honor, my comic, last one. So you know, so that’s the way I am like so. So my morning ritual is very dialed in. Like I get up and I do meditation, I go for a walk in nature, I get on a spin bike, and so everything.
So this is all very dialed in. But yeah, I just started doing this recently. And I’m all about stretching myself. Because I know that if I can take the heat and do things physically, I sure as heck can take the heat when I do things mentally or emotionally in the world much better. That’s just the way I approach it. So I will push myself physically, in these instances.
And so that’s that’s something that I’ve been doing. lately. That’s new, and definitely young. When you feel it, you know it right, your muscles are secure.
Mostafa Hosseini 49:12
Now, what are your top two or three favorite books that have made a massive difference? difference in your life or business?
Dan LeFave 49:21
Okay, well, I’m going to go to three because there are so many, but I’m going to name some that people might not even recognize. But when you hear the kinds of people that have read them like Michael Phelps read the power of your subconscious mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy. That was one of the Bob Proctor’s highly recommended books.
So the power of your subconscious mind Dr. Joseph Murphy, the last Olympics, Phelps went to was, you know, based on that there’s also Outwitting the Devil, by Napoleon Hill. That book wasn’t published until 2011. He wrote it in 1930s.
The whole family feared putting that book out because they thought they were going to gets slaughtered by the government or the school system or the religious factions. Right? So there’s that one. And then another one is called working with the law, by Raman HollyWell. That’s all about working with universal laws, not gravity.
And so not the typical ones, reciprocity, compensation, things that are intangible that we don’t think about too much. So those are in those books. I’ve read them all 30 times, so I know them intimately. And so, you know, but that I would say those are the top three.
Mostafa Hosseini 50:33
So I have listened to a lot of Joseph Murphy’s tapes, and I’ve listened to actually recently for the on YouTube, the guy is pure gold. You’ve got to check this out. Outwitting the Devil, great book, I think I started by him finished.
But get this working with the law is a book that I have read most probably read it seven, eight or nine times. And it’s the one book that I have gifted the most with Raymond HollyWell. And I’ve got the the suggestion from Bob Proctor. Yeah. Yeah.
Dan LeFave 51:13
These are those the power of the subconscious mind and working with law, very short books.
But super Oh, my God, how are mutable books?
Dan LeFave 51:23
Yeah, like highlight, take notes. Don’t just flip through it.
Mostafa Hosseini 51:27
Don’t see. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Like, there are two books that I’ve read that, that I’ve got high on the information that I was reading. Working with the law was one of them when I was reading it. I was like, This is so good. I want to fly.
You know, it’s amazing. And I’ve read it multiple times. Yeah, obviously, not as much as you seemed like it. But it’s like one of those books we’re reading it once is just just doesn’t do justice to we need to like digested we need to discuss it, like, you know, and the rest of it.
Amazing. Love it. Love it. But the reactions were power subconscious mark with Joseph Murphy. We didn’t devil with Napoleon Hill and working with the law with Raymond Hollowell. So next question. If you had an digital ads, like on Facebook or Google, where you had a message for people of Earth, and everyone could see your message online, or your ad online, what would your message be?
Dan LeFave 52:30
Hmm, that’s a good question. Um, well, as much as I think that time and thoughts matter, I think it would be conscious awareness, just, you know, the message would be about developing greater conscious awareness.
Only because we have so much power, we have so much power in our mind, we’re living two lives, the one that we’re living and the one we’re capable of living. Most people aren’t focusing on the one they’re capable of living so much, though, because they just look at the past and reflect on that. But I think if we just have a slight bit of conscious awareness, and, you know, become alert and aware of what we’re doing our environment around us, because I think life isn’t happening to us.
I think he’s responding to us. And we should look at the responses we’re getting, if we don’t like those responses, well, we got to go back in here and read the sentence, rearrange the mental furniture, it’s not quite aligned, right? There’s something out of order. And most people don’t operate, you know, or update their operating system.
They don’t. And that’s where conscious awareness, do some learning, just dialing a little bit in and seeing the power and potential of this thing. I mean, if it’s 96 90% of our results, behaviors and actions. Heck, let’s, let’s give it a little more time and attention. Right, it doesn’t take much.
Mostafa Hosseini 53:51
Absolutely. Alright, so what’s one advice that made a massive change in your life or business?
Dan LeFave 53:59
One piece of advice? Let me think about that just for a second. And I guess it could be from a book or it could be from anybody or anything, right. So yeah.
Dan LeFave 54:11
Well, I think one of the one of the things that I received from a friend was and this is somebody that, you know, obviously not obviously, but somebody who understands how the mind works and affirmations and repetition and so on, but is to really focus on what you want, like not just kind of carelessly like, Oh, I hope so or something not not, you know, not just wondering and guessing, but it’s focusing on what you want.
And if you want to take that a level deeper, like I was saying earlier, talk about what you want, like speak it out loud, you might as well look at your your list for the day the things you want. And let’s see if even if it involves somebody else, and I do this, it’s a practice.
I just say, hey, Lacey, I sent you that message. You got the information. I want an email response back from you today. Let me know what you want to do as a next step. That’s, that’s a want, right? Clear. And then if I have something for myself, it could be, okay. Today, we’re going to sit down, we have that block of time, one o’clock, we’re going to be working on this program.
And we’re going to dial in and take these three steps that we’ve carved out here. And that’s it very clear, talking it out, because we’re talking to ourselves anyway, we might as well just say it out loud, so we can hear ourselves a
Mostafa Hosseini 55:26
lot of it. Now real quick, if I have no clue what I want, what’s the fastest way to get to know and understand and become aware of what I want?
Dan LeFave 55:38
Process of elimination, start writing down things you don’t want. I know, it’s, you know, so, start start thinking about the things. You know, what don’t I like? What what? Totally detest, right? What would I hand off to somebody if I didn’t have to do it?
And if if you have a business and or you’re building a business, or thinking about starting a business, start that way, start weeding out the stuff that’s going to totally annoy you and frustrating, because, and then guess what, as you start doing that, you start getting little insights as to what will give you that emotional, emotional motivation or that insight or whatever.
You know, it always works, like I said earlier, but the restaurants, what don’t want to don’t want to tell you the one Japanese done with it. Okay, we start winding down. Well, we only have two or three left. Now let’s see what’s left, right. So
Mostafa Hosseini 56:27
interesting. Love it. I’m going to actually I’m actually do I’m gonna do that today, I’m gonna write down the things that I don’t want. Because I write down things that I do want. I don’t think I might have done in the past, but I don’t have a list of things that I don’t want. So and I’m gonna write down why I don’t want them.
Dan LeFave 56:45
Yeah. And then if you get really annoyed, it’s going to, it’s going to spike your emotions. And you’re going to, okay, well, and then, but then you should turn around and say, What do I want? Right? I get annoyed enough, right? What do I want, and then you start writing down a new list of things you want.
And then, you know, you have to get your emotions invoked, evoked. Because your subconscious mind is an awful mind. And so we need to get the emotions in, in this conversation. And so just start thinking consciously he won’t, you need to go down to the emotional
Mostafa Hosseini 57:16
level. Love it, I think there’s going to be some some good development or growth in that exercise, writing out what you don’t want and writing down exactly trying to figure out what you want. And I’m guessing it’s a process and I’ve done this myself.
It’s like, if you don’t know exactly what you want, it’s going to take a bit of time to figure out and come to the conclusion that Here is what I want, and make peace within and then start chasing it.
Dan LeFave 57:40
Yeah, well, you can do, you can do things. So you can ask, you can get like, I can get my client or get my clients to write down things they don’t want. And then I’ll get in a conversation with them and record it. And I’ll get them to close their eyes and say, What do you want to tell me? And I say, what do you really want, keep asking what you want until they can’t say anything else.
And then they have now the emotional stuff that they got down to the lower level, you know, emotional state, and we know what they really want. So,
Mostafa Hosseini 58:05
love it. Love it. Love it. Um, what advice would you give your 20 year old self?
Dan LeFave 58:13
A 20 year old self? Well, definitely develop a practice of learning and implementing fast. Like, go and learn things, implement it, test it, fail fast. It’s better to you know, to fail fast, like, jump on that bike crash a few times. Get back, right until you start figuring it out.
I mean, if you had to get on the bike is an urgency, you know, because you needed to go and get somewhere. You know, you’d figured out you’d feel fast. Wouldn’t you be like, I need to get to medical help now, because my mother fell down and is hurt my house and I don’t have a phone or whatever, right or no service.
You’d figure out how to ride that bike really fast. When Yeah, yeah. So fail fast. Right? Go? Do it. Struggle, right? Take the heat.
Mostafa Hosseini 59:00
Love it. If people have a fear of failure, what advice would you give them? They’re like you say fail fast. And they have that fear of, oh, I don’t want to look stupid. I don’t want to look back. I don’t want to embarrass myself. What would you tell them? How would you help them overcome?
Dan LeFave 59:14
Well, the way I explained it is think of fears a two year old child and you need to get some groceries and the two year old child is freaking out. screaming and crying. You’re like, then you have this you know this thought about I can’t take that child to the store like this. But guess what you do? You take them with you.
You go in there and they’re screaming yell, I’m freaking out. I don’t buy groceries. Sorry, everybody hungry. So you take them with you. So fear needs to be taken with us why? It’s only 151 of five emotions. What do we got fear, disgust, anger, sadness, joy. The only one we want is joy. But we got to go through fear or some of the other ones to get there.
The other thing and I can’t explain this all now but Tim Ferriss had a great resourcing tool for Identifying your fears, you know, basically writing down what your fears are and then, and then figuring out, you know, what’s worst case scenario? And then you start actually minimizing what that is all about. Right?
And you minimize it, and you end up going through it, you have to go through fear, there’s no, there’s no question about it, you don’t go through fear, you stay the same, or you shrink back to a lower level of yourself. So, you know, I know it’s not, not not everybody can go through fear.
But you, you know, if you develop the thick skin, and you can take the heat and go through it a little bit, then you get stronger, stronger, stronger. And then when something really fearful comes up, you just do it,

like, yeah, oh, yeah, I really like that, like that exercise of writing out your fears, and then figuring out what actually is the worst case scenario. And most of the time, it’s like, it’s not a big deal, right? And we make up all this big, big story in our head, right?
That has this very tiny chance of happening. And then we write it down. We actually, I’ve done this where I like, oh, like, what’s the big problem here? I can’t even explain the problem. I’m not sure. What the hell are you worried about? Right?
So a lot of times that? Well, you shared a lot of good tips here on this episode. Dan, I really appreciate you joining us. Thank you very much. For those of you who didn’t get a chance to get access to Dan’s gift here. The productivity system that Dan is sharing, let me see if I could show it on the screen, go to lafaye coaching.com, forward slash focus days, get access to Dan’s focused productivity system, which he has developed and reach out to them.
Obviously, he knows what he’s talking about. He is an ocean of wisdom with practice and a system to follow through and have a conversation. Dan, is there anything that you’d like to add, that we didn’t talk about before we wrap up?
Dan LeFave 1:02:02
Well, nothing additional. But the fact that you showed up here today to listen and you’re listening in and you’re gathering information, if there’s something that struck you and you thought that’s doable, I can do it, write it down, put it into your calendar, and get working on it.
Just Just take one little thing and do it. Because I’ve talked a lot about a lot of different things. You can do all sorts of things, but that’s just going to be a lot of confusion. So just take one thing today, and take a step doing that. And after you figured it out and got some results, and you feel good. Do something else. But just one thing.
That’s all because you know what, like, you’re talking about it, there’s too much distraction, right? And you need comprehension. So you need to take some action doing something. So just do something easy, doable, manageable, and then look for results from that, and then go on to the next thing. There’s always something pulling us forward.
And something pushing us the thing that pushes us is the fear of the thing that happened before that we hate, you know, the financial crisis, right, the hardships, and then there’s thing that pulling us to life, the freedom, you know, so anyway, that said, Just take one thing and do it. And one
Mostafa Hosseini 1:03:12
thing, just said one thing and just get started. That’s right. That’s a great advice. It’s like if you need to write a book, if you need to write an article, just write the first sentence do one thing. And wow, that this is amazing, then thank you very much.
