Chris Mattis: Thinking is the Difference

Posted by Orrin Woodward on March 17, 2014

Chris Mattis shares an important principle of success in life, namely, one’s thinking. A person’s thinking is what limits the level of success more than any other factor in modern society. Unfortunately, few realize this crucial principle. Thus, the vast majority live Emersonian “lives of quiet desperation” because they do not accept responsibility for increasing the level of their thinking. David Schwarz book Magic of Thinking Big changed my life because it encouraged me to stoke my dreams that I was on the verge of surrendering. 

Today, I realize that God used compensated communities to fulfill His plan he had for my life. Indeed, LIFE Leadership is doing that for thousands of individuals who are tired of living Emersonian lives. Chris Mattis changed his life and now is changing tens of thousands of others. Instead of seeking life scams, pyramid schemes, or lottery tickets, why not focus on growing personally so that you can expand your influence for good? Money is temporary, but positive influence is forever.

    Great blog – love that quote ‘positive influence is forever’. Thank you for being an example worthy to follow and for being a positive influence in my, and my family’s life.

    There are two basic motivating forces:
    Fear and love.
    When we are afraid, we pull back from life.
    When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.
    We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.
    If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.
    Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of
    People who embrace life
    John Lennon

    That was a great seminar! One of my favorite lines from Chris Mattis that I share and discuss with almost everyone I talk to about Life Leadership is the idea that “Better information leads to better thinking which leads to better results.” It’s those daily habits of choosing the correct inputs that eventually produce your positive output!

    I just love your CDs. Now finding you in a blog was a bonus!

  6. I feel like Paul in the New Testament…. He said in Romans chapter 7:21 that he discovered the principle of life – “that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do
    what is wrong.” I constantly have this battle in me. I just started with the Life Company about 5 months ago. My first month I hit club 180. since
    then I hit rock bottom. I find myself fighting each day to stay focused on my dream and the reason I started with life. I am read The Greatest Salesman In The World and
    now I’m reading Tim Marks’ book Confidence of a Champion. If it weren’t for the CD’s, meetings, my up line and books I would have
    been out of this business already. After reading this blog I am reminded what Romans 12:2 says… I have to renew my THINKING each day so I can know
    God’s will for me…I know this is a praying company, so I ask for that

  7. This was such a great video. Chris Mattis is one of my favorite speakers.

    “Stinking thinking” will knock you down every chance it gets! Better thinking,better results!! Lock out the negative Nellies, and continue to work toward your positive goals! Stephan Covey’s book First Things First is great material for prioritizing one’s time! Great job Orrin and great video of Chris!

    It’s all about “changing your thinking,” and that’s a HUGE nugget LIFE Leadership introduced into MY life! Thank you ALL! :)

    It truly is our thinking that holds us back. Thank you for helping people learn to use their greatest possession, their mind, to work for them, not against them.
