Announcer:
Welcome to The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. The three keys to your success is just moments away. Here's your host, Brian Kelly.

Brian Kelly:
Hello everyone and welcome, welcome, welcome to The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. My goodness we have one of the most amazing guest experts on with us tonight. I am so excited because this gentleman does way more of a similar thing that I'm doing right now. And he hosts live shows all day, every day. He's like this unbelievable, relentless, driven individual. He likes to call himself the Energizer Bunny. He's relentless. I love it. He is an amazing man. You're going to get to meet him very, very soon. Before we jump into that The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. Real quick. What is that all about? For those of you that may be new viewers to the show - welcome to the show, by the way. My name's Brian Kelly, the host of this wonderful, amazing platform we call The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. And mind, body, business - that is about what I call the three pillars of success. In my 54 plus years now on this earth, I began focusing on those people that were successful and left the unsuccessful behind me, as far as focusing on. So, I started focusing on successful people to learn what made them tick. What were those intangibles that made them so successful? And during this time, this period, over several years of speaking from stage, of networking, of being with other speakers, with very prominent internet marketing multimillionaires, with the gentleman that's on our show tonight...I found that there are three patterns, three pillars, of success. And it all starts with - every single one - with the mind. In other words, the mindset. And, once you're able to master your own mind - and we're talking more from the unconscious side of the mind than the conscious.And I know that may come off as a little woo woo to some, and it did to me in the very beginning, and now I realized just how important it is. And also, there are tools and they're proven science to help you to not only access your subconscious mind - we're talking about yours, yours only - you can also reprogram it to serve you better so we can take away those limiting beliefs, those, what I call, "weeds" growing in your beautiful garden of your brain. And once you do that you've taken away the resistance, and you can go farther, faster, forward toward success. And then there's body. What is that all about? It's exactly what it sounds like: body. It's about taking care of yourself, just like my guest expert does - and I know that for a fact - and that is through exercise - ff course, that's like a big four-letter word to many people - and through nutrition. Nutrition. And a lot of people discount one or the other thinking, "Oh, if I eat well I don't need to workout," or vice versa, "if I workout, good! Here comes a dozen donuts. Bring it on!" They really work in tandem. The mind and body are a team. And more importantly, the mind and body are your team. And so, if one member of a team is not operating at what I call a "peak level of performance", then what would you guess happens to the team as a whole? It suffers, yes? So, we want to ensure all team members are playing at full bore. And then there's business. So, business, that is a multifaceted topic. It includes things like sales, marketing, team building, scaling, hiring, firing, everything that goes with business. And the key there is to master as many of those areas as you possibly, humanly can. And those that you are unable to do: delegate, outsource, and master that art of delegating and outsourcing and hiring and leading. There's a lot to it. There's a lot to it. But, that is why successful people are successful. They work. That's another four-letter word, isn't it? They work. They work very hard, very diligent, very driven. Oh, and my guest that's coming on is no exception. I kid you not. Speaking of experts. Reminds me of a time many years ago, over a decade ago, I was flown out to the east coast. I'm from the West Coast. We're doing this live from near Los Angeles in California. My guest is on the East Coast in Georgia, somewhere, we'll find out where. Just kidding around. And so, he had me flown out. He flew me out there, picked me up in a limo. We had a deal to ink, a contract a sign that I brought out with me, and that's not the part of the story. The focus of the story is I was there for two days, in his office - corner office, he's a multimillionaire, just massive office. I'm sitting on his couch in his office, and he's standing looking at me. He's looking down and says - and we're just having a chat - and he said, "Brian, if people just knew, if they just did this one thing. If they just did this one thing, they would all be super rich." And he kind of paused, and now he's got my attention like you can imagine. So, I'm leaning in. And so, he starts to walk away toward the wall directly behind him. He turns around and there is a cabinet from floor to ceiling, two doors. He reaches to both handles in the middle, pulls it apart (mimics opening doors) and opens the doors to reveal something...not very remarkable, in my eyes. It looks very similar to what you see behind me. It was shelf, after shelf, after shelf of books. Now, these are books on personal development, on business, on fitness, on mindset, everything we just talked about as far as the three patterns to success,or the three pillars. And, I remember looking at that, and looking at him, and thinking, "You know what? I don't buy that." So, I ignored that advice. Ignored the advice of a guy who had already achieved success, who just told me directly - without me even asking -this was one of the keys to success. Now looking back I thought, "Wow! What a mistake that was!" The cool thing is, though, everything is done for a purpose, and I don't look back and cry over it. Years later, I then met another individual who would become my mentor, personal mentor. I worked with him for years, I spoke from his stage, helped teach his students for a couple of years, then I broke out on my own in my own state. But while I was with him, there was one time he was walking around his house, and he had a headset on. I said, "Hey man, what are you doing?" He goes, "What, this? (gesturing to ears) I'm listening to a book." I said, "Listening to a book? That's a new one," and back then it was still new. I said, "Wow! Well, what is that? Tell me about that." And so, many of you know what that is. There's several out there now, but Audible being the main one right now for listening to books. I thought, "Wow! That could be a game changer, so I'm going to give that a shot." Well, it turned out I love ingesting information through the ear more than I do through the eye when it comes to books. It just- everyone has their own different modalities that are stronger than others, where they retain and enjoy the information coming in. For me, it was audio. I was like, "Oh my gosh!" So, I began (air quotes) "reading" voraciously, book after book, after book. And this gentleman many, many years ago was so spot-on correct, I cannot tell you. And one of the reasons is not because of what I personally experienced, but every single guest I've had on my show has been an avid reader, and that's a key element. That's part of the mind. Mindset. It really does affect your mindset in great ways, so read the right books. And, to that end, I was able to bookmark - you know, tap the screen of my phone as I'm listening to these books, these amazing books - (gestures tapping) and I could tap the screen and save a moment that was really profound. And so, I did that. I started hitting bookmark, after bookmark, all over, every book. And so, that way now I don't have to reread an entire book. I can just go straight back to the bookmarks. I thought, "This is brilliant! This is brilliant!" The cool thing is, I can play them back on my phone, I can play them back on my computer over a website, which by the way, I have a segment right now appropriately named "Bookmarks" that we're going to head over to right now, so I can play you one of those segments. (Bookmarks informational screen)

Announcer:
Bookmarks: Born to read. Bookmarks: Ready, steady, read. Bookmarks: brought to you by ReachYourPeakLibrary.com.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, ReachYourPeakLibrary.com and just a quick note for everyone watching and listening, whether it's live or recorded: stay with us here. Everything happens quote unquote "in the room." That is with us. And us meaning myself and the guest speaker, who I promise is coming on very soon. And, in other words, when we mention resources - my guest expert will probably be doing the same like web addresses, et cetera - just write them down, take note of them, rather than go off and look at them. You want to be fully focused and engaged on this show, at least till the end. And then, it does end - by the way, just so you know. There is good news: it does end. That's not good news, that's bad news. (laughter) It does end. We do about an hour each show, so we still got a good 50 minutes to go. So, stay with us, OK? And I'm actually writing notes the whole time myself, as well. So, go ahead and write notes. ReachYourPeakLibrary.com. I built this website personally and I built it 100% with you in mind. The people, you, the entrepreneurs the ones who are looking to be entrepreneurs, the ones who are already successful, the ones looking to attain success. They are a group of books that I personally read, that I personally vetted, and I have bookmarked inside of them the locations that helped me to get ahead farther, faster. And, you'll see, there's a whole list of them that will scroll down. There's about 40 on this website. I'm way behind in updating the site. This is a great place to start or even continue your reading journey. So, just pick one if you haven't started reading, or if you have been reading enough. Don't go crazy without over-analyzing. Look at one, if it rings true to you, get it, read it, and ingest it, and then move on to the next and keep going. The cool thing about this is, with this, you don't have to guess as much about the books you're reading so you will be wasting less time, because you know at least one person has successfully - well, has read these books and achieved something positive as a result of them. They weren't just - not every book I've read, for instance, is on this website. Not at all. These are only the best of the best. And so, what I wanted to do is give you a quick glimpse into one such book, an amazing book by a gentleman of the name Tim S. Grover. Tim S. Grover, real quick, is an amazing, amazing man who talks about this concept of being relentless, which was so apropos for my guest speaker. Tim Ray, who's coming on in just a moment - right after this - is an amazing guy, because he personally trained people like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, and many prominent sports figures you know today. This book is amazing. I highly recommend you pick it up. What I'm gonna do is play about a one minute snippet out of it. And even during this - especially during this - take notes. I'm gonna hit the play button. Listen intently, and take notes. Are you ready? Here we go.

Tim S. Grover:
(photo of book on screen) You can hear clever motivational slogans all day, and still have no idea how to get where you want to be. Wanting something won't get you anywhere. Trying to be someone you're not won't get you anywhere. Waiting for someone or something to light your fire won't get you anywhere. So, how are you going to get there? Believe this: everything you need to be great is already inside you. All your ambitions, and secrets, your darkest dreams. They're waiting for you to just let go. What's stopping you? Most people give up because everyone has told him what they can't do, and it's easier to stay safe in the comfort zone. So, they sit on the fence, unable to decide. Unable to act. But if you don't make a choice, the choice will be made for you. It's time to stop listening to what everyone else says about you, telling you what to do, how to act, how you should feel. Let them judge you by your results and nothing else.

Brian Kelly:
That is profound: let them judge you by your results and nothing else. And the one thing that really jumped off the page on that one was everything you need to be great is already inside you. You already have it. It's just about tapping into it, and using tools and techniques to get into your mindset, and help to reprogram your mind for a better you. And talked about the comfort zone that people love. All of us, including myself, including Tim - who's coming up in just a moment- love that thing called a comfort zone. Why? It's comfortable, that's why. And the thing we realize and recognize - those of us that are successful - is the key to being successful is to continually, habitually get out of that comfort zone. And that's what Tim Grover so eloquently stated right there in that book. And speaking of eloquence, and expert, and amazing people I think it's time, don't you, that we bring on one such individual. Let's do that. It's time right now for the guest expert spotlight. (spotlight page)

Announcer:
It's time for the guest expert spotlight. Savvy. Skillful. Professional. Adept. Trained. Big league. Qualified.

Brian Kelly:
And there he is ladies and gentlemen! (pointing to side of screen) The one, the only, the legend, Tim Ray. (laughter) I always wanted to announce it like a big stadium where it echos. "Now batting, number four! Tim-Tim-Tim, Ray-Ray-Ray" (echo sound).

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
Love it. How you doing, Tim?

Tim Ray:
Wonderful, now that I'm on your show. I've just been looking forward to this, Brian, for such a such a long time. Thank you so much. I think what you're doing out there is incredible. Not many people just bring in the mind and body part of the business and you've got the full spectrum and I love that. I think that's so- it's needed now, it's time now, that we look at business not just from making wealth or making money. It's about the full picture.

Brian Kelly:
There you go. Thank you for- that very eloquently stated. Like I said, eloquence. There he is. The man.

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
So, I want to introduce you real quick to the folks watching, and listening, and then we'll jump into some more deep- really get deep about who you are, what makes you tick. More specifically, what makes you successful, because that's what so many people are curious about, is how people that have achieved levels of success like you have got there, and how they stay there, and how they keep climbing. And so, real quick, let's bring Tim on officially, and I'll introduce him here real quick. Known as the conscious voice of the South, Tim is an award-winning, international, paradigm-shifting, no B.S., truth seeker. After spending many years working tireless hours, and going about the everyday shuffle, Tim eventually hit a crossroad. He was either going to bury his head in the sand or shift the mindset - did you hear that? - of people across the globe. Tim was tired of what he calls (air quotes) "toxic media." So true. Bombarding the world with negativity. He knew that he would have to light a torch and gather an army of people who believe in the power of their intentions. So, in 2009 - my, 10 years ago already - he founded the United Intentions Foundation and the UI Media Network. That's a non-profit foundation whose mission is to assist others in learning how to transform worrisome thoughts into positive intentions. Are you seeing the theme here with the mindset? Tim's passion for consciousness spreads far and wide with his children's education program, the Imagine If program, and his Conscious Radio Network that reaches millions. Ray's mission is to spread the good word while waking people up to the power of their intentions. That is a beautifully written introduction. I didn't write it. You guys did. So, I wanted to say again: thank you for being on the show, Tim. Welcome to the show. And before, one last thing right before we get going, I need to/want to let our audience know - those are watching live - watch till the very end. Why? Because those who do will have a chance to win a five-nights stay at a five-star resort in Mexico, compliments of my good buddy Jason Nast, and buddies, and Rhonda at PowerTexting.com. Stay on till the end. You don't wanna miss that. We give away one trip every single week. I kid you not, and they are high-quality trips. You do not go sit and listen to a timeshare. This is your time and you get to have fun. Alright. Without further ado: Mr. Ray.

Tim Ray:
Yes, sir. I'm staying on just to win the trip, just so you know.

Brian Kelly:
(laughter) I love it. I love it. So, a great, great intro, great bio. I loved it. Every bit of it. And I'm just curious: like in the morning - start at the beginning. When you wake up every day, you know you wake up, you swivel around, your feet hit the floor, and then you stand up. At that moment, a lot of us are groggy. I know I am . Still not 100% clear. But from that moment to go forward takes a lot of drive, really. And it depends on what drives us to do what we do every day. And for you, what would you say is that thing in the morning that you think about? That says, "Ah, I can't wait to take it on the day and change more lives." For you, what is that?

Tim Ray:
Well, I go back and forth but I'd probably say I enjoy when I wake up. I try to wake up when I can wake up, not so much when I have to wake up, unless I'm doing that the morning show, so I get my sleep in. And then, I don't drink coffee in the morning. I just never have. If I drink coffee I'd probably climb the ceilings. And seriously I just don't have that. I tried it many times. When I was in college, I'd drink when I was cramming or somewhere down the line but I just don't drink coffee to that level because I will just be way off the hook. I'm already the Energizer Bunny, as you said. But I get up and I do my routine, basically. And, often, I will do my- I do these subconscious programming techniques, which I will use in the products that we sell, to assist in programming myself in the morning. And I use that as my meditation time, too, at the same time programming myself and I try to as often as I can. I don't do it every time, but that really sets my day. Puts me in a really- in a mindset of, I can create my reality. I will be creating my reality today and this is my temporary news, as I say all the time. And that, to me, I think that's such a bouncing off pad to be able to, "OK. This is where I'm going. This is how I want my day to unfold." I'm taking control of my day rather than, "How am I going to be bouncing off," and most of us do bouncing off the world. And what's the world is saying to us. And I think we're now creating our own dialogue. And when you create your own dialogue, you get back what you create. And I do truly believe I create my own reality and as I wake up, I set that intention. And then I go on to whatever I need to be doing, like I am brushing my teeth, doing my routine. But usually I'm out of my house, I'll schedule my night before, I'll have my planner lay down what I kind of want to experience, and then I'll start engaging in that: tasks, whatever it is I needed to do. And not always; I don't always follow it but I usually have it as a guideline. But, I think, having my routine of kind of getting the morning, and getting present, and then setting out into my day is very critical. Not only myself but for anybody really, who wants to move forward and keep leveling up as they wake up every morning. "Because every day is a new day to a wise man," somebody said. Wise man, wise woman, right? So, I think that's just an interesting way to start your day.

Brian Kelly:
Interesting. You said so many wonderful things there, and again, I love honing in on the patterns that I talked about the beginning of show, and those that comprise those three pillars. And one of those was a word that came to my mind listening to you on how you schedule every night before you wake up with intentions, setting your intention, creating a dialogue with your- a dialogue, I can't read my own writing - a dialogue with yourself. You've got your own dialogue.

Tim Ray:
Yes, with myself. Yes. Yeah.

Brian Kelly:
And so, what I noticed that's common among successful entrepreneurs, what that is, is what I call discipline. It's continually doing what you know is going to get you to the next step in your life, wherever that may be. But it's doing something that you may not necessarily want to do. I don't want to sit down and take notes right before I go to bed, because I'm tired every night. And you probably don't either, but yet you do. And that's the thing. We didn't want to make our beds as kids but if we didn't, we might get- well, back in our day maybe, Tim, we might get spanked, but for those today they might get time outs. I don't know what it is today.

Tim Ray:
They get a candy if they do a good job or something.

Brian Kelly:
So, that's in an away motivation, and what you're doing is a discipline for a toward motivation, and that is success. And succeeding greater the next day. And bringing more people aware to what your mission and purpose is, to your shows, to your network, to everything you're doing which is phenomenal, by the way. Thank you for being that light for the world to shine upon. We need more people like you. Definitely.

Tim Ray:
Thank you, Brian. But it really is. In reference to the getting up and setting your day the night before: I'm a big Franklin Covey planner to the point where we create our own planner and technical intentional planner offer on the network, on the foundation, where it's a blend between a Franklin Planner and an intentional process that we created. So, you can keep track of all your tasks that you want, as well as create what intentions you want for the day, right? And then you have 365, you just follow each day, but planning ahead of time. When I was working for the man years ago, I insisted- in fact, it was mandatory - that every staff, I was a vice president of operations fora hundred million dollar company. And I had all my my V.P. team, my regional teams, everybody had to have a Franklin Planner. Everybody had to use a planner, because when you use a planner, when you give tasks out, now you can delegate not abdicate. So, when I sit down with people - and to this day, even my company now Golden Home Services, a home health care company in Atlanta - everybody has a planner, because that's how you delegate, and when you ask somebody do something, they write it down in their planner. I'll say, "Did you write down in your planner?" And even with myself, I have to hold myself accountable for that time. Sometimes I forget to, whatever may be. To me, it's my brain on paper. And I know a lot of people use their phones, which is fine to some degree, but I'm not just some old school, but I use my phone for a calendar, reminders. But the planner, to me, is really critical. It gives you a chance to write and writing in cursive, writing in general, brings your left/right brain hemisphere to the point where it flows smoothly and it's a processing tool, really, more than anything. And so, at nighttime I'll use that, I'll set my day out. And my day may not go toward exactly how my planner- as I planned it out, right? Because always is a new routine or some ball thrown into the mix there that kind of gets you off task, but it's a guiding light. I can always go back to it. And then I know all my staff and people who work with me are on the planner, too. So, we're kind of united in direction and, to me, that's probably been one of biggest successes and not just in this endeavor I'm doing now but just in all my endeavors in the past, is the use of a daily planner.

Brian Kelly:
I love that tip, because there's so many people that just go at it blindly forever...

Tim Ray:
Or the yellow notepad. I mean, it drives me crazy, because what do you do with a yellow notepad? You leave it somewhere. You never get back to it. You never review your notes.

Brian Kelly:
True, true.

Tim Ray:
Everything all in one location you can access, you remember the day, you can even write down the time. It's the perfect reference. And our intentional planners, which we call them the Seed of Intention and Sprouts of Intention, does just that. It's a planner which I'm a big advocate for, but also it puts in our attention processes that we created not only UNI Network but also the foundation, that people can use to everyday track their intentions they're creating, and manage it, and watch it manifest in their lives. So, it's like as good entrepreneurs, Brian, you kill two birds with one stone, right?

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, exactly. And the thing is, I like to think of the metaphor- well it's a metaphor- like if you have a dart, and you're gonna throw it, and try to hit a target. If you don't have a target and you throw it, you're darn sure gonna miss because there's nothing to hit. And so, what Tim is talking about is creating that target.

Tim Ray:
Yes.

Brian Kelly:
And then he said - and I'm reading words in your mouth by metaphor - and that is: you don't always hit the target, but the thing is, he's always throwing darts, and there is a target.

Tim Ray:
Yeah.

Brian Kelly:
And so, it's a combination of two things: he set up a schedule of intentions and tasks, and that's not enough, he then takes action the following day to probably hit most if not all. Sometimes life gets in the way, and we have things that come and interrupt, and that's OK. But he's done this on a habitual basis, so I'm just saying that to him, to let people know they don't have to be perfectionists. They don't have to hit a home run, get an A+ every single time...

Tim Ray:
Exactly, exactly.

Brian Kelly:
But it is, it's a guide. But it's your guide, for your life, to succeed whether it's business, personal, or both. It probably is both. I would imagine.

Tim Ray:
It is. I use my personal planner all the time.

Brian Kelly:
Sweet, and just for our guests - and probably for me a little bit, too - could you kind of delineate the difference between an intention and a task? What would be an example of each so people can be clear on that?

Tim Ray:
Sure. Well, an intention I consider like a purposeful thought, but more so it's a knowing that hasn't happened yet. That's what we use at the United Intention Foundation. And knowing that hasn't happened yet is basically, you're creating something that you want to experience. And we call it using inspired action. The old way you set your goal, and you put your task to meet your goal, right? It seems like it's similar, but when you create your intention, and then you take inspired action from your intention, there's a subtle difference to it. And one of the differences- 1) you're allowing the universe to flow with you and to make sure that whatever is coming your way is what's really best for you. And the first one, the goal/task is more of a force by nature, an old pisces way all of forcing things to happen to you. And often we think we know what's best for ourselves, but if we sit back and we realize well, there's much more than just this three dimensional Tim Ray. I believe I'm connected to Source, I'm connected to the universe, I'm connected to a higher power, whatever it may be. And that higher power may have other plans for me. And take into account these other plans, the intent - for me - the intention process, inspired action, is more of a cleaner way of taking that extra information that I may not be open to into account to mirror I may not be so tied to my expectation what my goal and task is, but a higher purpose and driven in that flow. And an interesting way, yes I question it. It's a major difference between the intention, inspired action, and the goal, and the task. This inspired action is where I'll create the intention. I'll put it out there what I want to experience. It can be anything like I use an example I wanted to get piano lessons for my son years ago. And so, I could've went on Google. That was my goal, I can win on Google, start looking up people who come to my house, and teach me piano lessons. But what I did instead is I just put the intention out there. I didn't Google it. And the intention was the highest, the best person to come in who would work out best. So, I put it out there in the universe, wherever you want to call it. And then I went on to my day. And now, my mind is scanning for this opportunity if it appears. And so, I'm driving my car that next day, literally the next day, and there's a car in front of me that on the back of the car said, "I come to your home to give piano lessons." This is a true story. And it was probably, the car I've seen before. I just never- my subconscious mind was not scanning for it because it didn't have the intention behind it. And it turns out that this guy who came lived right near us. He was perfect. My son Tommy loved him and it was effortless. And now, I could have went to Google, or went to Yellow Pages, whatever you wanted back then you wanted to use. And I could have went through two or three people to get the right person. But here I just allowed the universe to work for me through the intention process and inspired action was this: it appeared in my life. Now, I take action. And that was me getting on the phone and calling the guy.

Brian Kelly:
There you go.

Tim Ray:
So, that's the subtle difference between setting goals, and tasks, and setting intentions, and inspiring action.

Brian Kelly:
That's so awesome. It's kind of like the movie Bruce Almighty. There was a scene in there with - I forgot his name. That incredible actor; a comedian. Gosh. Anyway, he's driving along and he's saying, "OK, God. I'm gonna do whatever you say, just show me a sign. Give me a sign, any kind of sign," and it was down pouring rain, and he was really downtrodden, it was dark. And right in front of him, because his headlights are shining on it, is a flatbed truck full of, guess what? Signs. Literal signs that said, "Turn back. Stop. Go away." All those things. And then he went to go them and he goes, "God, anything. Just show me a sign!" And the next scene is boom! He's in a pool.

Tim Ray:
(laughter) That's a great example, Brian. How we're in denial of our... what's available for us. When we - and I emphasize this in my work, too, and also especially on the Conscious Media Network, that UI Media Network, is that, guys, there has to be something more than just this body. And I don't care what you want to call you. You can call it Jesus, you can call it Buddha, you could call it Higher Power, the higher stuff, you could call it the Universe, you could call it Source. Whatever it may be. But knowing that we are all interconnected, or a collective consciousness. but we're interconnected to something more than just us. And some people are totally cut off from that understanding or belief system, and so be it. This is whatever lessons I consider what they need to learn in this in this life. But, nevertheless, once we understand that I have that connection and there's higher purposes here, whatever it may be. Then I allow myself to go into that routine where I may not. And often what I do - like with the United Intentions Foundation - it was a Field of Dreams type of experience. I didn't know what I was building. I was just going forward with it because I was inspired - inspired action, right? I took the action, and it developed into what we are today. And I could never have done this if I sat down, put my business plan together, wrote out all the specifics of what I was going to do for the next three years, five years, wrote my profit margin down, wrote all this stuff down... it would've never been what it is today. I had to be in the flow of the steps of where I was. Otherwise, who knows what it'd look like.

Brian Kelly:
I love that and flow is another term that comes up often. And I love the fact that you've combined intentions and tasks, and tasks could be aligned with what our traditional goals are to achieve those goals, I should say...

Tim Ray:
This is the new- I call the new intentional business model.

Brian Kelly:
I love it.

Tim Ray:
This is where I I think we're growing to. And people like you get it, Brian. And I know enough to know that...

Brian Kelly:
Because it puts you in alignment subconsciously, right? You're in alignment. And also it then becomes congruent with your value system. And like you said, you may have seen that car five hundred times, it could have been but because it was now in your awareness, because you set that intention, it then became in alignment with the task you wanted to achieve, and then you took action. It was a beautiful...

Tim Ray:
You're an avid reader. I'm an avid reader. And you read a quote earlier about the real successful people out there read, and more so they read the right things, right?

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Tim Ray:
So I always took to reading and it's so sad to me like for my kids and the generation down. Reading is not as important. Sometimes you get the bug. They could always read more later on; I'm sure they will when they get really interested in it but seems like a dying art for whatever reason.

Brian Kelly:
Yea.

Tim Ray:
I think it's critical to our critical thinking. But with reading, when you read your book and you learn a new vocabulary word you've never seen before. You have to look it up. What does that mean, right? Tell me you don't see every other page that you read from then on forward.

Brian Kelly:
(laughter)

Tim Ray:
It pops up everywhere because now your subconscious mind is scanning. It's brought that into reality and it's scanning to see that word. Same concept with the intentions. Same concept with inspired action. Except you're not working as hard. It's not so fear-based. I don't mean to scold...

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Tim Ray:
If I don't get this task done, nothing's going to happen. I'm not going to feed my kids. You're sitting back and allowing yourself to work with your team. We have angels on your team, or spirit, or Jesus, or whatever it may be. You're not alone. You're never alone. I don't believe we're ever alone. So, we're just including more people on our team to success. If you want a simpler way to look at it. We're not here in this realm perhaps.

Brian Kelly:
And it makes sense, and a lot of people want to make more of it than it truly is, and you did a very good job of really bringing it down to earth for those who thought it was above and way out there. It's just like how many times have you went out and you've either bought a car or you became highly interested in a certain type of car that was different than the one you previously owned, and now, all of a sudden, they're everywhere. How did that happen? They're everywhere! You never saw 'em before but now they're everywhere. Every corner. Same exact thing.

Tim Ray:
Signs. This is the power of the subconscious mind.

Brian Kelly:
Exactly.

Tim Ray:
And if you want to talk about that, let me know because I could talk about that forever.

Brian Kelly:
I love it.

Tim Ray:
Unconscious mind runs the show. We're not in charge, our subconscious is.

Brian Kelly:
The show's already over. I didn't know if I told you. We're near the end. No, I'm kidding.

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, this is right spot-on. So, for those of you just joining MIND BODY BUSINESS, we have been hitting mind the entire show and I love that, because really, if you think about it, the mind and your mindset is the foundation of where you are today. It's the foundation of where you'll be tomorrow. And if you haven't mastered mindset - in other words, putting in positive elements into your life, and ridding yourself of negative, and using tools and techniques that are proven to work. And Tim is going through some right now where he sets...I don't know what you're calling it, a planner that includes both bold tasks and intentions in a very remarkable way. There it is: Seeds of Intention. Love it.

Tim Ray:
(holds up planner) And this is like right up my alley. This is made for me, this intentional planner, because I'm a big Franklin Covey advocate, and at the same time I'm a big intentional believer of the process. So, these combine the two and it's the best thing since sliced bread, it really is (laughter).

Brian Kelly:
(laughter) Right on. Well, let's shift gears just a hair. Hey, it's The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show; maybe we can move into body and talk about that because, again, all three are equally as important to achieve peak performance and peak success, in my humble opinion but it's really not an opinion. It's just too obvious. It's out there, the patterns. I know that you are an avid exercise-aholic. You love exercise...

Tim Ray:
How do you know that, Brian?

Brian Kelly:
A little bird told me.

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
I said," Yeah we have a we have a - what do you call it?...

Tim Ray:
A common denominator.

Brian Kelly:
A common connection that helps us to know this. But I wanted to know you, from your standpoint, what makes physical fitness important to you? What makes it important for your business and for your personal life? How does that play into your...

Tim Ray:
I mean, there's just so many layers to that. But also, the first thing is as an entrepreneur, and a maverick, and, like you say, relentless type of person who can goes, goes, goes no matter what's thrown at you. It's the number one stress reliever for me is is working out because the slew of biochemicals that are released from the endorphins, to the Oxy- you know, not OxyContin but the oxy-codings, whatever that hormone I'm thinking of. I mean, it's just constantly, nonstop release of biochemicals which affects us, and puts us in this parasympathetic mode. We live in basically a sympathetic response world. It's always fear based. You put the news on, you do anything, you go outside, and you see things. Our subconsciousness scan, is scanning really through fear, through activation, a particular system in the back of your brain to look for trouble, look for problems. And so, with with looking for trouble guess what comes in our reality? Trouble. We find trouble all the time. So, when you're working out it actually relieves you of that sympathetic nervous response of fear and puts you into a parasympathetic response of safety, of critical thinking, of imagination which is part of our frontal lobe. And it does it automatically when you get a really good workout, whether it's working out with weights, on the bike, or whatever it may be. We'll go for a walk after dinner or something. And so, it's not just once in a while, but having a routine is critical because it keeps the mindset clear on that level. But, to me, that's one of the important ones. And guys, I'm not just a person here that doesn't miss working out, or doesn't miss- I write in my planner every night religiously. But I know when I'm off track and what I need to do to get back on track in that road to success for myself. And everyone may be a little different approach. But this is what I have done for me. And I personally like working out with weights. I feel better about it. I think it's - I'm always yo-yoing at any given...I could put on five, ten pounds at any given moment. And what sucks is as an entrepreneur, you're always going out, traveling, and you're eating all the time.

Brian Kelly:
(laughter) Yes.

Tim Ray:
And that's like, to me, it's like, "Oh, I've got the routine where I have my nice meals. I've got things prepared, it's what's healthy. Non-GMO, it's no Sodium Florida my water. I got my routine, you know, and then when you go out you have to go off tasks and be two-three days in a row, as you know. Now your body's adjusting to this new lifestyle, eating and not working out, if that's the case. So, to me, I get very little- a little bit anxious when I can't get my good workout in if I'm traveling often. Which I try to minimize as much as possible. But it's critical, I believe, to anybody's success, for those reasons alone. And there's many more reasons, I'm sure, if we explore it further.

Brian Kelly:
Many more. You're hitting on the main primary ones which was stress relief. The other thing I found that it gave was an apple...

Tim Ray:
Oxytocin, by the way was the name.

Brian Kelly:
There we go.

Tim Ray:
Thank you, Anne. She has- We're doing a watch party. Guys, do a watch party out there on this, too. It's so much more fun and just interesting stuff we'll be doing. But, yeah, that's exactly the hormone: Oxytocin.

Brian Kelly:
That's right. Comment, ask questions on wherever you're watching. Could be Facebook, Periscope, Twitch. There's many. We're streaming live to nine different platforms simultaneously. Please, please do come in, and join us, and get into the conversation. But one thing I noticed, of many things - also you said the word several times - the word was routine. Another perfect word that also means discipline. And so, there is this common theme. And the reason I bring that up, Tim, is that is a common theme of everyone I've interviewed that has achieved success. Everyone. There is a form of discipline and a lot of people look at that in its own right as a four-letter word. The D word. "No, no. I don't want to have discipline in my life." It's really about just forming habits. Good habits. And so, discipline has a negative connotation to some. It really just means forming habits that are going to be beneficial to you. That's all it is. And it's sticking to them.

Tim Ray:
And it is. And I'm going to butcher Dale Carnegie's quote of this. What he mentioned a long time ago is that inspiration is fleeting. Method is really the only way you can move forward in whatever project or program you're working on. Because, I mean, the inspiration is so... I go around the country, and around the world, actually, and I talk about the subconscious process of how making permanent, authentic change in the human mind. What you just said - routine, it's all a routine, a new routine, if you want to change routine, it is always the new normal after you're ready in your mind. Our neurons can create it. They're real plasticity. We know this now to be true. It was always true we just never really explored to the degree that we do now. And through pretty new neural pathways from the old stinking thinking that we have. And one of the biggest things, probably the biggest- and you tell me if you agree, Mr. Entrepreneur himself -

Brian Kelly:
(laughter)

Tim Ray:
...that one of the biggest setbacks for a new entrepreneur, for the most part, even an ongoing one who has to somewhat have success, is the word procrastination. Some people say being lazy. And what I discovered over the years and never realized is, because most of our influence is in the first seven years of our life. This is when we created, developed, our new neural pathways, our core beliefs that we will use for the rest of our lives in whatever new adult scenarios. But the first seven years, when we are most susceptible, is when we create these beliefs and that's where procrastination comes in. But procrastination really is a failure belief. A failure program. We have a program at a very young age to fail. So when we're procrastinating, it's not you just being lazy and you just want to relax, and watch TV, or eat ice cream, and not deal with whatever you need to deal with. It is in subconscious level, on a deeper, neural pathway in the brain, there's a belief system there and each one may have a little variety of a different one but at least the overall is: that you will fail. You should sabotage yourself. It's called self-sabotage. And you need to slow down, or you'll look for excuse not to focus on it now, or you'll get somebody else to just try to do and you want to abdicate responsibly not delegate, or whatever it looks like in your life, but it's a failure program. And until we address the subconscious failure programmed, and create a new neural pathway for success, it's always going to be that monster in the back of our minds. And I tell you what, Brian. I deal with that at any given time myself, although I literally reprogram myself as we speak to not stay focused on procrastination. But it's- once you realize how the word- the failure belief system, this belief of failure - once you realize, and you bring to your conscious attention that, "Wow, I'm doing this," you start every day doing a little less and a little less and a little less. And then before you know it, you have a new belief system, an internal belief system that you're making decisions to succeed, and you're not making decisions to self-sabotage yourself. It's really interesting, you might have heard this before, but you know why- a lot of people who win lottery - within the first year, this is crazy, this is a statistics: 95% of everyone who wins the lottery within the first year - 95% within first year lose all their money, or they go to jail, or they end up dead. 95%. I'm not talking about a little, I'm talking win the millions, right? I mean, why do you think that? Because they're programmed to fail. They're the rich dad/poor dad mentality. They haven't- they don't realize that our subconscious mind is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind, and it runs the show.

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Tim Ray:
And until we deal with these negative programmed beliefs that we created when we were young, then we're going to self-sabotage ourselves. And this is why people win the lottery self-sabotage their own success, because they're they're unconsciously looking to fail. And that's just the bottom line.

Brian Kelly:
And to that end, there is good news for everyone watching, because we all were brought up in certain ways. Many of us, the majority of us, in that what we call the imprint stage - what you talk about, the first seven years of your life. How many times did we as kids hear the word "no." How many? I mean, ungodly amount of times to say, "Don't touch that. Don't play with that. Get that out of your mouth," (laughter) all that stuff.

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
Everything as a kid. And it's rarely a positive thing. And fortunately more often it was positive than negative and then as we get to adults we don't hear it as much. But, yeah, the imprint stage, as you were talking about, and that does form a lot of beliefs. The good news for everyone watching, because some might be thinking, "Oh my gosh, I've got to stop playing the lottery. I don't want to die.".

Tim Ray:
(laughter).

Brian Kelly:
The thing is, it might be a smart thing not to play the lottery, but if it's fun for you just continue. The thing is, there is a way to reroute your wiring in your brain and that's a way to re-decide limiting beliefs that were formed back in that time, in your zero to seven years. And there is a science called neurolinguistic programming that can help you do that. I've been through it myself, and I am now a certified practitioner in NLP. To me, when I first heard of this, I was the first one in the seat going, "Whoa, whoa. This is woo woo." And I thought, "What is this hocus pocus stuff they're talking about?" And the more I learned, the more I leaned forward. And not- I learned all the way forward till I fell out of my chair, got up, and started signing up for programs to learn at a deep level...

Tim Ray:
Welcome to the world of neuroplasticity and that we could retrain our brain really to do anything.

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Tim Ray:
That you're right. That is the real truth of the story. Even one of the folks on here mentions, "Agree. But most of the time we are very successful if we encourage ourselves." And that's true, you're creating a neural pathway when you start encouraging yourself or others encourage you. But you hit on it. The NLP, the neurolinguistic programming, the neuroplasticity, changing our mindset, creating new neural pathways, really is the solution. And it's not a woo woo. It is hard science.

Brian Kelly:
It is.

Tim Ray:
In fact, is it's more hard science than most what we read in our actual science books today because they're about 30 years out of date. They're not even caught up to the biology of belief, or how our DNA we could create brand new DNA never seen before, or the nature versus nurture. It's 95% nurture and only 5% nature. So, we're not destined to our forefathers, not destined to live the sins of our father, or whatever they may be. We create new reality every day, not only through our thoughts and feelings, but through our intention process, we create brand new DNA in our body never seen before when we know how to do the intention process of being in a positive frequency mindset as you talk about all the time. We literally can heal ourselves on many levels, not just on a mental game of creating intentions and manifesting them, but also on actually healing the body.

Brian Kelly:
Yes. It's amazing. It's amazing; the mind is so powerful. And the mind and body are connected and intertwined in every cell, in every cell of our being. And it's amazing what shifting your mindset from the subconscious level does for you as a person. It literally - and I don't, I'm not a dramatic person - but it literally changed my life for the better. I'm more outgoing, more happy. I love talking and interacting with people. Before, I loved people; I didn't like interacting with them. I just didn't want to. I didn't know. Now it's like, poor people. I'll talk to anybody; in the elevator, I'm that guy, the one that talks.

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
But I do it with kindness, with integrity. I don't just blat out at them. I have a good time enjoying the human race, and having fun, and making friends wherever I go. And it becomes instant - building rapport - all because I learned this science called NLP. It is absolutely a science. It's not just a thought. It's not a theory; it works. I've seen it time and again, and it's worked on me time and again. It's just- it's real.

Tim Ray:
Well, you know it's stuff we're doing every day. If you're the type person who you've been programmed to fail, whether procrastination or some other type of program but yet you're encouraging yourself every day to make a different decision than you normally would to self-sabotage yourself? That's NLP. We're NLP-ing ourselves every day whether we're aware of it or not. But if we allow ourselves to go down that road of, "water seeks the lowest level" and feed into these our own negative programs, then we're also NLP-ing ourselves, but in a in a negative way. So, we constantly program ourselves. The question is: do you are a program yourself for success or do you want to program yourself for self-sabotaging and a failure, failure type of mentality?

Brian Kelly:
And the cool thing is that negative program is the result of repetition over days, weeks, months, and years of feeding yourself the same information. The really good news is with NLP, one process like to re-decide a limiting belief, takes a grand total - are you sitting down? - of seven minutes. And it works, and it's done. It's done. You have re-decided. I'm no longer going to procrastinate. I'm now going to focus and crush it every single day. I'm going to set my intentions and achieve those tasks because I have the planner that Tim Ray has developed. Because I'm taking action. But procrastination - what the heck is that? I don't remember what that is. You'll remember what it is, but you will not ever procrastinate.

Tim Ray:
You can be reminded at any given time, and I will say this: I truly believe- I work with really some top scientists - Dr. Morgan here in Atlanta, he's one of my mentors, and we've created what they call the Fast Track products, which we sell on our site. It's all about reprogramming your stinking thinking, reprogramming your brain cells. And one of the things we do, we have developed a core belief. And a core belief usually never change. And so, the process really works with NLP, as you're saying as well what I call subconscious programming, is when you program yourself for success it's not that you're changing your core belief.

Brian Kelly:
Correct.

Tim Ray:
It's almost impossible. But you're creating a new neuro pathway that your conscious mind can pull from, which has positive strategies of success, rather than pulling from your old, negative core beliefs on that topic/issue. Let's say procrastination: instead of pulling from that old one, it's pulled from the new neuro pathways. So eventually what happens: that old core belief of procrastination, through what they call synaptic pruning, is that it dies down. You're not walking that pathway as much because you've got a new pathway to walk. A pathway that has strategies. I always engage the customer. I always follow up after meetings. I always do what's best for myself and for other people. These are the new strategies that you're embedding into your subconscious mind, that your stinking thinking can't self-sabotage because it's not even aware that you're doing it. But when you can, bring it to a conscious level of that. Then - and you believe it - that's when you're sinking your subconscious belief with your conscious belief and can make real change on an authentic level , rather just an inspirational moment where, you know, how many you know go out, and buy the books, and they go to the seminars, and they do everything, and they wonder why they're back on their couch again, watching TV...

Brian Kelly:
(laughter)

Tim Ray:
...And not having any success in the life, you know? Because they're not making real, authentic change. Bottom line.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, absolutely. So totally concur with all that. I'm so happy that this is how this show turned; the direction we went has been predominantly on mindset, and I am absolutely ecstatic that it has, because it rarely does. It's usually a little mindset, a little mixture. But the thing is, this is such a great time for it, because if we went more into body, we touched on it. If we went more in the business, we really haven't touched on business too much.

Tim Ray:
Right.

Brian Kelly:
Neither of those latter two actually matter unless the mindset is in proper order to begin with. Because you'll self-sabotage on working out. You'll self-sabotage on eating right. You'll self-sabotage on all the tasks that are at hand for your business. If your mindset is not rock solid, or at least more solid than it is today, and you're not procrastinating, and your limiting beliefs have been pulled - pluck those weeds from the garden - are gone. If you haven't worked on that area of your mind, then it's gonna be really tough to succeed in the other areas of your life.

Tim Ray:
Beautifully stated. I tell people all the time I get a come out better prepared a speech, a presentation in the Bahamas a little while ago - a year or two ago - and I said, "Who here," - we were talking about how to become a millionaire - "who here believe skill set is the way to go?" and then I said, "Who here believes mindset is? Which one do you think is more more important?" And I said to them, I gave some reasons like I say to you now, but I said,"Mindset will always trump skill set. Because I don't care if you don't have a skill. But you can be taught a skill for the most part, if you use repetition as you say, and have information or knowledge somebody can share that with when you learn on your own.But mindset, if have a self-sabotaging program or limiting belief in you, no matter what your skill set is, you're going to sabotage that, you just said. So mindset will always, always trump skill set. So why don't we focus on mindset first in business, and then we'll worry about skill set later on when we've got our stinking thinking thing taken care of.

Brian Kelly:
And that's what shifted my life in a great, grand way was I finally met my mentor, who I alluded to earlier, and his name is Mel Cutler. Love that man. He literally, by age, could be my son. I look up to him. I learned so much from him. And he held two-day, live seminars. And I first experienced one of those and I thought, "My gosh! What you just said to him was what he was saying, and backed it with the science and told us and took us through a process from stage where I felt the difference." I'm like, "My God. He's the only one - everyone, everyone talks about the importance of mindset, and say your affirmations in the morning, then play great music when you wake up and you're gonna become a better person. Now, let's get into the marketing!" And then, 90% of it is marketing.

Tim Ray:
(laughter)

Brian Kelly:
And so, this was one where it focused 100% on mindset and sprinkled in business, and marketing, and sales. Sprinkled.

Tim Ray:
Yeah.

Brian Kelly:
I thought, "Nobody does this, and it makes total sense, and it's having an impact on me as I sit here (pointing to seat) watching and listening." I said, "I have to learn this stuff at a deep level and share it." So...

Tim Ray:
It reminds me of like these allopathic doctors. They go through this M.D. school, they pay a hundreds of thousands dollars plus to get trained. And what they do is they spend one week - one week - on nutrition. And nutrition, as we know now, if we're interested for integrative doctors, nutrition is how do you heal yourself. The most important thing you can do is eating foods that are actual... people think, "I take a pill. It heals myself." No. No pharmaceutical drug. Nothing heals anybody. Only thing that heals a human being is themselves. Now, the drug may come in and prevent a symptom from appearing and allows the body to heal itself, but the only healing going on is through the body, through inside here. Our own pharmaceutical pharmacy that we have in our brain, in our biochemicals in our brain and our body, is where we pull all our drugs from. They're just more concentrated. But they get no training on this, in nutrition, but the same concept with the mindset. You say, "we get like a week of mindset and then rest is OK. Just get your strategy, marketing, get your business plan together. Let's get your high-level performer look like. But then you leave and then you start holding the bag. OK, what do I do now? I want to go home and sit on the couch and watch TV.

Brian Kelly:
(laughter) Exactly. Hey, you know what? We're two minutes from the top of the hour. And the good thing is, I'm not on a schedule where we get cut off the air, so I do have one more, very profound question to ask of you. And the cool thing is, to date, not a single person who preceded you on this show has answered it the same way as anyone before them.

Tim Ray:
Oh wow.

Brian Kelly:
It's been very unique. Yeah, it's very very cool. I do expect that at some point there will be someone who does, so that doesn't mean you have to answer differently. No pressure. (laughter) But it can be a profound question to some - it has been, actually - and it has provoked some thought. So, if it takes a little bit to gather your thoughts, silent, people don't like dead airtime and it makes them nervous... you're a pro. By the way, this guy, Tim... goodness. We gotta talk more about that. Oh, I can't stand that we're running out of time. But, before we jump into that question, real quick, I promised everyone - I need to remind them now - this is how you can enter to win a five-night stay at a five-star resort in Mexico compliments of PowerTexting.com. (informational screen) And there are two ways to enter: probably the easiest is to pick up your phone and text the bottom part which is text the word PEAK, that's P-E-A-K, to the phone number (661) 535-1624. So type in the phone number which is (661) 535-1624. And then in the message area type in the word PEAK. P-E-A-K and then hit the send button. And we will get that entry, and we will pick a winner, and you'll be notified via, you guessed it, text. Again, this is PowerTexting.com. This is their system running in the background when you do this. Amazing, amazing.

Tim Ray:
And everybody out there do this right away!

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Tim Ray:
He gives away these vacations every week!

Brian Kelly:
That's right.

Tim Ray:
Everybody listening: share with everyone. Get them and it's texting (661) 535-1624. This is incredible. You're not going to get this opportunity again, so do that right now.

Brian Kelly:
That's right. Thank you. See I told you this guy's polished. I love it. And the other option is, if you must go to a website, you can do that. And you do have our permission to do this right now. Open up a new tab so you can still hear us because we still are coming back with that great question. Go to The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. Don't forget the word "The." TheMINDBODYBUSINESSShow.com/vacation. TheMINDBODYBUSINESSShow.com/vacation and just enter your information. Right there is an opt-in form, real easy. And, again, it's all powered by PowerTexting.com, so be sure to enter your phone number. It's a requirement, anyway. Your cell number. Mobile number. Do that now. Let's get a winner. I can't wait to announce who that is. And back to the man of the hour, Mr. Tim Ray, and to the question of the hour. The big one. And so, just to even make it easier for you, Tim. There is no...

Tim Ray:
I like it hard. (laughter)

Brian Kelly:
(laughter) It'll be thought provoking. But the thing about the answer you give, there is no such thing as a wrong answer. There can't be one.

Tim Ray:
You know what, I say that, but sometimes there is. There's some other folks - I'm joking -but you say it all the time, some people say, "Oh there's never a wrong..." and I'm like,"Yeah, sometimes, you'd say something really dumb." But it's OK.

Brian Kelly:
In this particular case, I know you, and I know you will answer it authentically. There won't be... in fact, the only correct answer is your answer. There's no other correct answer because it's yours. This is how you perceive it. And no one else. So, are you ready?

Tim Ray:
Yes.

Brian Kelly:
OK. Tim Ray: How do you define success?

Tim Ray:
Wow. I'd have to say my definition of success has changed every five or so years. When I was younger, it was wearing a business suit - the monkey suit I used to call it - wearing a tie, and walking around like I was some manager of something in my teens and 20's. And, I got a certain amount of cars, and I got certain amount of house, whatever I was dreaming about. That would have been my old definition of success, right? This three dimensional world; identification with shiny objects. And as I got older, then I switched to a family, kids, that's more success for me. And then, as it is now, in my age, middle of my life now, it's really- I define success by my influence with people and their influence with me. My connection with other human beings. And not just human beings but a connection with life, beyond human humanity - animals, nature. To me, I see this is critical. In fact, I've dedicated the last so many years at probably the amazement and surprise of my my folks who run my home health care company because I'm not as engaged like I used to be. And like, "Tim. What's going on?" I dedicated my years and hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years to what I believe of leveling up humanity. So, I would say whether I do or not. I'm also in the process of just monetizing our foundation. Trying to keep, make it self-sufficient. So, my definition of success on that level, from a business perspective, would be, "can itself sustain itself? Can the foundation sustain itself?" And that's where we are right now. We're in the process of selling products. Process of self-sustaining the foundation through the UNI network and so on down the line. So, I would define part of that there, but my main part is, am I following my purpose? Within my purpose. My purpose is my purpose. It's not your purpose, Brian, it's not anybody listening's purpose. It's my purpose. And if I'm following my purpose - to me, now, today - that is how I define success. Am I waking up in the morning and I get to go to work? I don't have to go to work. That's where I get a whole 'nother belief system. And when people are living their purpose or people living where they feel joy - and again, it's not always what you're doing. In fact, all the time, I say all the time: it's not really what you're doing. It's who you're doing it with. And usually, if I'm doing my purpose, whatever that may be. I think we have multiple purposes in life. I really do. I don't think there is this one purpose. I found it. I'm going to do that the rest of my life. I think we're in the flow of life. We're in the universal flow of creating our intentions, and manifesting, and following inspired action. Our purpose is always growing. And it may be a larger purpose; it may not be. I mean, we don't know. And we're not going to know, I don't think, until we transition off into our unity of spiritual connection again. Conscious connection. But, at the same time, my purpose is I believe what's unique to everyone on the individual level. And, to me, that's how I would define my success. Am i in my purpose? Are you in your purpose? You should feel- you should go home and just thank God that you're connected, you're connected to your purpose, connected the higher power, whatever that may be. And now you have found success. And listen - my experiment with the foundation, Brian, may fail. It may go right down the tubes. Conscious media, creating a conscious media network. It's not supported on a mainstream media level at this point, yet, but it may not. I may not get enough people to help us support it, and move forward on it. But nevertheless, I believe what I'm doing is my purpose and I believe that's success. And I can fold up office tomorrow and still feel successful about what I've done because I am making... I'm not trying to change or I'm trying to make an impact. I am changing the world for the better. I am leveling up and I know I am. I know people who are on a team, because I'm not doing this for our team. The more people come on board, we are making change. We are leveling up this world. And, to me, that's enough for me. I mean, I can go home and have a beer now. (chuckle)

Brian Kelly:
Yeah and I concur. You are already making an impact and making that change in the world. I know your goal is more lofty than where it is now, which you know what? If we ever achieve that pinnacle of place where we think, "I've made it. I don't need to go any farther". To me that equals one word and that's boredom and no purpose.

Tim Ray:
(Laughter) Yeah, I'd rather be penniless, and living in the street, rather be bored. I'm with you on that.

Brian Kelly:
Like retirement is not a word that exists in my dictionary anymore.

Tim Ray:
That's a death sentence for most people.

Brian Kelly:
It is. It is. And till my last beat, or at least as long as I'm able, all I want to do is help people. And that's where you are coming from. And true to form, your focus was on influence and connection, right? Influence and connection. And throughout, the underlying theme was helping people. Helping people to become aware of getting rid of their stinking thinking, of aware of setting intentions so they can follow through with tasks, to be more congruent with their selves, to have a easier path to success than they're currently going through, everything put together. And I know you're having an impact 'cause I've watched. I do watch. I do check on your page on occasion and I see the comments in there and you're getting a lot of people saying, "Thank you so much!" Everything's positive. They're loving what you are providing from the network itself. And I can only imagine from behind the network. And, by the way, I almost forgot to say you have a gift that you're looking to offer our viewers...? The free intentional planner?

Tim Ray:
Yes, we do. It's a gift that costs a little, but we have gifts. And I think I am giving away a potential planner. I think we set that up, right?

Brian Kelly:
I believe...

Tim Ray:
Yeah. Well I'm sure one of the girls set that up. So, is there are a number that they're supposed to call. Did they leave that in there at all?

Brian Kelly:
I can pick one of the...

Tim Ray:
They just tell me to do stuff and I just do it.

Brian Kelly:
So first prize will be the vacation or the intentional planner and the second prize will be the opposite.

Tim Ray:
Okay, you guys, you've got to stay on the show for the whole, full hour to get the opportunity to go on this vacation. So don't forget that. But I wanna say one thing. You said something very important to me. This is where I think you need to look at your own your own purpose and your own self-awareness. There's common themes in everybody's lives and you have to kind of be the armchair quarterback, or at least reflect back on your life and figure out what yours is. And what I came to the conclusion years ago - it just, you know, I think like that - is I'm a caretaker. And what does that look like? Well, when I first started out I was a mental health counselor. You know, I was in college. I was a mental counselor and then then I got into the senior care business. You know, care for seniors. Now, I'm into the conscious media, and also uniting our intention, the power for attention, how we can heal ourselves and heal others. So, that's me. That's Tim Ray. Tim Ray is a caregiver. You could call him a mental health counselor. You call him a home health care provider. You could call him the founder of united intentions. Whatever it may be. And come next five years from now, Brian, I don't know what but I will you this: it will be related to being a caregiver and being a caretaker. And that's just me. Some people are not. Some people are just visionaries and it could be something totally non-care taking way. And we need that. We need a variety of people.

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Tim Ray:
Not everyone needs to be a caretaker. But that's me. That's my purpose and I know I feel the best and I give my best when I'm care taking. I'm not the type person to love to direct care take. You know I've been in this senior care business but I know how to take care of people who do take care of the people directly. And, to me, that's just my role I play in the short period of time I'm here for - for 80 plus or minus years. And I'm comfortable with that. I don't need to be anything more than that.

Brian Kelly:
Fantastic. So, let me remind folks; we'll just do it this way. We'll have two winners. One will win the five-night stay at a five-star luxury resort in Mexico, and the other - I'm actually leaning toward the free intentional plan. That would be even more worthwhile, because with that you can change your life and go on many more trips. Text the word PEAK, P-E-A-K...

Tim Ray:
It's the gift that keeps on giving. (laughter)

Brian Kelly:
That's right. That's right. That's what you want. So you want long-term success, long-term results, not quick, short-term kills. So, type in the number (661) 535 - 1624, enter the message PEAK, P-E-A-K, and hit the send button right now to enter, and we will choose one from each, and we will notify the winner. And I'll get with you, Tim, on how to get that free planner to them. And we will take it from there. That does it for this show. We went over about 10 minutes, and that's fine. Jimmy crack corn. You know what I'm saying. So...

Tim Ray:
Wow! I can't believe we did. Really, an hour has been so fast?! Wow!

Brian Kelly:
Every time. And I appreciate you. Well, if we 50 more, we can make it two. (laughter)

Tim Ray:
(laughter) I'll do whatever you want, brother.

Brian Kelly:
I know you would and I know you need your sleep, too, here on the East Coast. It's almost 10:00 there right now.

Tim Ray:
Yea, right. (laughter)

Brian Kelly:
And on that note, Tim, very seriously, I so ,sincerely appreciate you coming on the show. You're an extremely busy guy. Very successful. I don't know how you do it. I mean everywhere I look, you're on yet another show...

Tim Ray:
It's my team, honestly. I have the most incredible people. I have people who run my home health company, Gretta Fall, Gina Brewer. I've got my folks at the foundation with Shawn and I got my partners Jennifer and Shannon McVay, who's my partner awake in Atlanta. I got the producers, Suchi. I've got a whole team that makes it happen and, trust me, I give them all the credit, because it wouldn't happen without them.

Brian Kelly:
And without your leadership, and you are also a visionary, by the way. I don't know if you knew that but you are, because they're following your lead, and that's a great thing. You're multi-talented, and it's very obvious. And you're also a buffed manly man. So, I like that about you, too.

Tim Ray:

Tim Ray:
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go to UnitedIntentions.org. Our website. We have about 5 websites out there, and they keep growing. Our imagineer program. This is so much to talk about. We're never going to get everything done in an hour.

Brian Kelly:
That's right. There you go. You can also see Ray, his handsome mug, and suit right there on his site.

Tim Ray:
Book me to bore you to death on somewhere in the world there, and I'll come speak to you.

Brian Kelly:
No, no, no. Actually, engage and really get people involved. I love your style as a show host yourself. You're amazing. I was a guest on your show sometime ago. It was a blast. It was a great experience. So, those of you that are making an impact on people's lives for the good, reach out to Tim and just see if you're a fit to be on his show, because he has some amazing people on the show. Go with a giving heart and say, "How can I help you? How can I serve you? Is there something I can do to assist you in your show?" And, of course, one of those will help spread the word.

Tim Ray:
For entrepreneurs, receiving is tough, Brian. And that's a lesson I need to learn. And we need to receive. I want to continue to grow, I want to continue where we're going. We need everybody participating. Not just in the treasure but in their time and their talent. So, thank you for giving the opportunity, Brian, to get our good word out today. I can't thank you enough. I think you're just a wonderful soul. I'm so glad that we are connected here, now, in life together. and that's just the way it's going to be the rest of our days. We can't get rid of each other at this point.

Brian Kelly:
Hey, I wouldn't want to. I love you, my brother. I really do.

Tim Ray:
Same here.

Brian Kelly:
It's awesome. All right. For the rest of you, I love you, too. I'm not leaving you out, all the people that are watching live, and listening to the recording. That does it for this episode of The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. We'll be back again two weeks from tonight. I am taking a week off because this is a very special week coming up. My wife and I are going to New York City, spending a week there, to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

Tim Ray:
Wow!

Brian Kelly:
You only celebrate that once unless you are really, really lucky.

Tim Ray:
Congrats. That's my hometown, man. Big Apple will take care of you.

Brian Kelly:
Oh yeah. We both went last year and had a blast. We're gonna do it again. So, we'll see you in two weeks time. Can't wait to bring this back up. Tim, thanks once again. Appreciate you, my brother. For everyone out there watching, listening: see you in a couple of weeks. Stay blessed, and we'll see you very, very soon. Bye-bye for now

Tim Ray

Known as the “Conscious Voice of the South,” Tim is an award-winning international, paradigm-shifting, no “bs”, truth-seeker. After spending many years working tireless hours and going about the everyday shuffle Tim eventually hit a crossroad, he was either going to bury his head in the sand or shift the mindset of people across the globe. Tim was tired of “toxic media” bombarding the world with negativity, he knew that he would have to light a torch and gather an army of people who believe in the power of their intentions. So, in 2009 he founded the United Intentions Foundation & the UI Media Network, a nonprofit foundation whose mission is to assist others in learning how to transform worrisome thoughts into positive intentions. Tim’s passion for consciousness spreads far and wide, with his children’s education program the Imagine If… program & his conscious radio network that reaches millions! Ray’s mission is to spread the good word while waking people up to the power of their intentions.
