Slide2: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things Finding The Purpose of Your Life in Six Lessons

Slide3: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things I have a big hairy audacious goal

Slide4: 

My BHAG is:

Slide5: 

This speech will create over 100 millionaires

Slide6: 

By November 3, 2012

Slide7: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things So raise your hand if you are a millionaire today

Slide8: 

Raise your hand if you want to become a millionaire within 5 years

Slide9: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things Now, raise your hand if you think you’ll become a millionaire within 5 years

Slide10: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things There is a problem here

Slide11: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things If you don’t think you’ll become a millionaire

Slide12: 

LESSON: Thoughts become things There is almost no chance you actually will

Slide13: 

LESSON ONE: Thoughts Become Things

Slide14: 

What you think about, turns into what you do

Slide15: 

And over time becomes tangible and real

Slide16: 

So throw away all the negative thoughts, energies, and influences

Slide17: 

And create an ambitious and measurable goal

Slide18: 

For example, to become a billionaire by age 40

Slide19: 

Or a millionaire by November 3, 2012!

Slide20: 

Let your mind focus on how to achieve that goal

Slide21: 

You don’t need to know how you’ll reach your goal

Slide22: 

To set your goal

Slide23: 

So start now, set your goals, and aim high

Slide24: 

And never ever let your mind, or others

Slide25: 

Tell you what you cannot accomplish

Slide26: 

Once you determine what specifically it is you want to achieve

Slide27: 

The universe will connect you

Slide28: 

With the people and knowledge that you need

Slide29: 

So put your Big Hairy Audacious Goal out into the universe

Slide30: 

But what does ‘put it out into the universe’ mean?

Slide31: 

Write down your goals, frame them

Slide32: 

And hang them in your room!

Slide33: 

Harvard Business School conducted a study in 2003…

Slide34: 

So write down your goals!

Slide35: 

And frame them!

Slide36: 

As soon as you get home!

Slide37: 

Do you promise me that

Slide38: 

You will write down your goals in the next 7 days?

Slide39: 

And Frame Them?

Slide40: 

And hang them in your room?

Slide41: 

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say, I just watch what they do. - Andrew Carnegie

Slide42: 

LESSON TWO: There is Purpose to Life

Slide43: 

Why we are here is really confusing

Slide44: 

It makes no sense at all why we’re alive

Slide45: 

We’re really just a spec of dust

Slide46: 

On a pale blue dot in the vastness of space

Slide47: 

We’re right here

Slide50: 

Here we are!

Slide51: 

It’s hard to keep things in perspective sometimes

Slide52: 

We have these strange instincts

Slide53: 

And we all have secrets

Slide54: 

And tragedy

Slide55: 

Yet there is meaning

Slide56: 

And while life is short in the Grand Scheme of Things

Slide57: 

We do have time to make an impact, to create change

Slide58: 

The purpose of life in my opinion is to be happy

Slide59: 

And help others

Slide60: 

But note that happiness is first

Slide61: 

You cannot help others if you are not happy

Slide62: 

So only associate with constructive vibrations

Slide63: 

Only associate with positive people, and thoughts

Slide64: 

And have a positive mental attitude

Slide65: 

As you decide how to interpret events

Slide66: 

You are the only one who can create your story

Slide67: 

LESSON THREE: It takes 5 Years From When You Start

Slide68: 

It takes 5 years to break through

Slide69: 

Once you are in the game

Slide70: 

So get in the game today

Slide71: 

Are you in the game?

Slide72: 

If not, do you want to get in the game?

Slide73: 

I said, do you want to get in the game!?

Slide74: 

So start your five years of paying your dues now

Slide75: 

There is no better time in human history to start a company

Slide76: 

There is no better time in your life to start a company

Slide77: 

Get out of your comfort zone a little and take action

Slide78: 

Five years ago on November 3, 2002

Slide79: 

I was sitting in those very seats

Slide80: 

I was 18 years old

Slide81: 

I decided then to get in the Game

Slide82: 

After hearing an inspiring speech

Slide83: 

Two days ago, November 1

Slide84: 

We hit $10 million in all time sales

Slide85: 

And we’ll do $10 million more in the next 10 months

Slide86: 

Build up, to break through indeed

Slide87: 

It takes five years, so start now

Slide88: 

And surround yourself with great mentors along the way

Slide89: 

LESSON FOUR: Whatever You Believe, You Will Achieve

Slide90: 

I know what you are going through

Slide91: 

I know what it’s like

Slide92: 

I’ve been there

Slide93: 

It’s hard

Slide94: 

It’s lonely

Slide95: 

Few people believe in you

Slide96: 

Your parents might doubt you

Slide97: 

Your friends might doubt you

Slide98: 

But you must focus

Slide99: 

And persevere

Slide100: 

End any negative associations

Slide101: 

Focus on the positive

Slide102: 

And visualize

Slide103: 

So take a moment

Slide104: 

Close your eyes

Slide105: 

Take a big deep breath

Slide106: 

And slowly let it out

Slide107: 

Keep your eyes closed

Slide108: 

Now envision

Slide109: 

What you want to accomplish in your life

Slide110: 

What do you see?

Slide111: 

One day you will no longer be on this earth

Slide112: 

And in your place you will have left something

Slide113: 

What will that something be?

Slide114: 

How will you be remembered?

Slide115: 

What will you create?

Slide116: 

That continues on after you are gone?

Slide117: 

What will be your legacy?

Slide118: 

Think about it

Slide119: 

Okay you can open your eyes

Slide120: 

You know, the people in this room believe in you

Slide121: 

And if you believe in you, you will figure out a way

Slide122: 

To reach places you cannot yet fathom

Slide123: 

If you believe, you can in fact achieve

Slide124: 

But first, you have to get out of your comfort zone

Slide125: 

Hold up, do I hear Soulja Boy?

Slide126: 

Give the person next to you a strong high-five!

Slide127: 

And always remember

Slide128: 

Whatever you believe, you will achieve

Slide129: 

LESSON FIVE: There Exists a World of Unlimited Wealth

Slide130: 

To take a company public on NASDAQ or NYSE

Slide131: 

You need about $40 million in annual sales

Slide132: 

High-growth companies are valued at a multiple of annual revenues

Slide133: 

Public companies in the space I’m in

Slide134: 

The Software as a Service Space

Slide135: 

Are valued at an average of 7.5x annual revenue

Slide136: 

So a company in our space

Slide137: 

Can get to $40 million in annual revenue

Slide138: 

And go public

Slide139: 

It might be valued at around $300 million

Slide140: 

That’s a lot of money

Slide141: 

A lot more than I ever thought was even possible

Slide142: 

When we began five years ago

Slide143: 

More is possible than you think

Slide144: 

I did not realize

Slide145: 

That there was an entirely different universe out there

Slide146: 

I am the son of an Episcopalian Priest and a Social Worker

Slide147: 

I never knew a world existed in which

Slide148: 

Someone who worked intelligently for seven years

Slide149: 

Could earn $70 million

Slide150: 

And yet people do it all the time

Slide151: 

Once you’ve been in the game for a few years

Slide152: 

Learned some key lessons

Slide153: 

And have built a team of A player superstars around you

Slide154: 

It’s absolutely achievable

Slide155: 

It just takes time

Slide156: 

And a willingness to sacrifice short-term money

Slide157: 

And comfort for long-term gain

Slide158: 

I never knew a world existed

Slide159: 

In which there were hundreds of firms

Slide160: 

That will beg you to give you tens of millions of dollars

Slide161: 

To grow your company

Slide162: 

But now I get five calls per week from those very firms

Slide163: 

Institutional capital they call it

Slide164: 

The world of private equity, venture capital

Slide165: 

Leveraged buyouts, and strategic acquisitions

Slide166: 

Was foreign to me

Slide167: 

But it exists

Slide168: 

And if you get in the game today

Slide169: 

And get started

Slide170: 

And figure out how to build initial revenue

Slide171: 

And get over the biggest hurdle there is in business

Slide172: 

Making your very first $100,000 in sales

Slide173: 

You will begin to meet the people

Slide174: 

And gain the knowledge to get access

Slide175: 

To this universe of unlimited wealth

Slide176: 

And begin to scale the great skyscraper of business

Slide177: 

I’ve seen the view from the fiftieth floor

Slide178: 

And I want you to see what I can see

Slide179: 

And although you may not see it yet

Slide180: 

Don’t limit your ambition

Slide181: 

It will take at least five years

Slide182: 

And the first three will be the biggest challenge of your life

Slide183: 

But it will be worth it

Slide184: 

So get in the game now

Slide185: 

There’s no better time

Slide186: 

Will you get in the Game now?

Slide187: 

Look. If you had one shot. One moment. To seize everything you ever wanted. Would you capture it? Or let it slip? - Eminem

Slide188: 

LESSON SIX: Our Generation Can Change the World

Slide189: 

When I was 15

Slide190: 

I had red hair, listened to punk rock music, and was disillusioned

Slide191: 

I didn’t realize there was a purpose to life

Slide192: 

I didn’t think an individual could make a difference

Slide193: 

Today, I know that one young person can make a huge difference

Slide194: 

I realized at 17, two facts that changed my life

Slide195: 

49,000 humans die every day

Slide196: 

From preventable disease and starvation

Slide197: 

It’s the tragedy of our generation

Slide198: 

And 2.7 billion people live on under $2 per day

Slide199: 

I couldn’t ignore those facts

Slide200: 

I couldn’t pretend I didn’t know them

Slide201: 

So I joined the ONE Campaign

Slide202: 

I got involved with social entrepreneurial ventures

Slide203: 

And I decided to do what I knew how to do best

Slide204: 

Be an entrepreneur

Slide205: 

What really drives me

Slide206: 

What gets me up every day

Slide207: 

Ready to take on the world

Slide208: 

Is a desire

Slide209: 

A desire to see a world created in which

Slide210: 

There is equality of opportunity

Slide211: 

A world in which there is no more extreme poverty

Slide212: 

A world in which humans don’t kill humans

Slide213: 

Through war and genocide every day

Slide214: 

I have a dream

Slide215: 

That someday, every child in every country in this world

Slide216: 

Regardless of nationality, race, gender, or geography

Slide217: 

Will have access to education, food, healthcare, and technology

Slide218: 

And that together we can create a world

Slide219: 

In which world leaders realize, that which separates us

Slide220: 

Is much less important than what binds us together

Slide221: 

A world in which we can end the ‘Us vs. Them’ mentality

Slide222: 

A world that is environmentally sustainable

Slide223: 

These are the challenges of the entrepreneurs of our Generation

Slide224: 

I hope to spend the rest of my life

Slide225: 

Working through entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship

Slide226: 

Investing, philanthropy, and public service

Slide227: 

To hopefully lead a generation that creates this change

Slide228: 

And I hope you will join me as entrepreneurs

Slide229: 

We can make a difference

Slide230: 

Will you promise me right now

Slide231: 

That you will give back in your life

Slide232: 

Toward making the world better?

Slide233: 

Whether you believe you can, or cannot, you are right. - Henry Ford

Slide234: 

In Conclusion…

Slide235: 

1) Thoughts become things

Slide236: 

2) There is a purpose to life

Slide237: 

3) It takes 5 years from when you start

Slide238: 

4) Whatever you believe, you will achieve

Slide239: 

5) There exists a world of unlimited wealth

Slide240: 

And 6) Our generation can change the world

Slide241: 

So who here wants to become a millionaire within 5 years?

Slide242: 

And now for the key question

Slide243: 

Who here thinks they will actually become a millionaire within 5 years?

Slide244: 

Stand up if you think you will become a millionaire within 5 years?

Slide245: 

Remember, the first step to becoming a millionaire
