Have you ever had a new idea or a goal that excites you... but not enough time to execute it? What about a goal you really want to accomplish...but can't because instead of taking action, you procrastinate? Do you feel like the only way things are going to get done is if you do them? But what if it wasn't that way? What if you had a team of people around you that helped you accomplish your goals (while you helped them accomplish theirs)?
When we want something done, we've been trained to ask ourselves: "How can I do this?" Well, there is a better question to ask. One that unlocks a whole new world of ease and accomplishment. Expert coach Dan Sullivan knows the question we should ask instead: "Who can do this for me?"
This may seem simple. And it is. But don't let the lack of complexity fool you. By mastering this question, you will quickly learn how billionaires and successful entrepreneurs like Dan build incredible businesses and personal freedom.
This book will teach you how to make this essential paradigm-shift so you can:
* Build a successful business effectively while not killing yourself
* Immediately free-up 1,000+ hours of work that you shouldn't be doing anyway
* Bypass the typical scarcity and decline of aging and other societal norms
* Increase your vision in all areas of life and build teams of WHOs to support you in that vision
* Never be limited in your goals and ambitions again
* Expand your abundance of wealth, innovation, relationships, and joy
* Build a life where everything you do is your choice--how you spend your time, how much money you make, the quality of your relationships, and the type of work you do
Making this shift involves retraining your brain to stop limiting your potential based on what you solely can do and instead focus on the nearly infinite and endless connections between yourself and other people as well as the limitless transformation possible through those connections.
"[T]his one simple concept is a masterclass on positive psychology, healthy relationships, mental well-being, and high-performance. Everything that psychologists know about how to create a high-functioning and successful person can be achieved using The GAP and the GAIN."- Dr. Benjamin Hardy
Most people, especially highly ambitious people, are unhappy because of how they measure their progress. We all have an "ideal," a moving target that is always out of reach. When we measure ourselves against that ideal, we're in "the GAP." However, when we measure ourselves against our previous selves, we're in "the GAIN."
That is where the GAP and the GAIN concept comes in. It was developed by legendary entrepreneur coach Dan Sullivan and is based on his work with tens of thousands of successful entrepreneurs. When Dan's coaching clients periodically take stock of all that they've accomplished-both personally and professionally-they are often shocked at how much they have actually achieved. They weren't able to appreciate their progress because no matter how much they were getting done, they were usually measuring themselves against their ideals or goals.
In this book you will learn that measuring your current self vs. your former self has enormous psychological benefits. And that's really the key to this deceptively simple yet multi-layered concept that will have you feeling good, feeling grateful, and feeling like you are making progress even when times are tough, which will in turn bolster motivation, confidence, and future success.
If you're finding that happiness eludes you no matter how much you've achieved, then learning this easy mindset shift will set you on a life-changing path to greater fulfillment and success.
In Unique Process Advisors, you’ll hear from each of the ten advisors in their own words as they share how they made this transformation. Renowned coach Dan Sullivan is your guide on this tour. His insights between stories illuminate what it takes for any advisor to become a Unique Process™ Advisor. If you’re an advisor looking for a way to create a much bigger future financially, creatively, and personally, this is sure to be an eye-opening and inspiring read.
These ten advisors were first featured in the Creative Destruction series published from 2003 to 2007. Already, hundreds of others have joined their ranks as Unique Process Advisors. In the next decade, thousands more will follow, creating processes that transform not just the way these advisors do business, but also the lives of countless others, and ultimately, the financial services industry itself.
"Free Zone" entrepreneurs don't compete, they collaborate, creating and sharing "Intellectual Shortcuts"--ways to do things faster, easier, cheaper, and with bigger results. And by 2044, their combined revenue will grow to $15 trillion.
Find out how you can be one of them.
When you take a step back and think about your thinking, you can take control of your attention, as well as your time and your purpose, rather than allowing others to be in control. It’s up to you.
Once you know who you are, you can find the perfect collaborator: your opposite. Simplifier-Multiplier collaborations lead to unprecedented breakthroughs and results, and give you the freedom to focus exclusively on what you do best.
Most entrepreneurs are fixated on their competition and on external conditions they can’t control. To them, cash flow is a constant source of worry. What they don’t realize is that their success isn’t actually about them at all. It’s about who they can create value for and what those people aspire to.
Entrepreneurs who know exactly how they create value can cross over a line where cash flow becomes certain, and the model they’ve created continually improves. Once you reach this point, you become totally confident that your cash flow will always be predictable—regardless of how the world outside your company changes.
This also gives you a repeatable way to gain insight into what matters most to your clients and prospects, and cultivate a growth-focused relationship with them. By having a "D.O.S. Conversation" with your clients that illuminates their personal dangers, opportunities, and strengths, you make yourself an invaluable part of their future -- and make your product-focused competitors seem irrelevant.
Here are just 10 quick benefits listeners often experience when they apply this content:

- Gain clarity and direction.
- Feel more purpose and meaning.
- Discover their crucial capabilities.
- Experience new levels of fulfillment.
- Identify who they want to be a hero to.

In my Strategic Coach® workshops, I'll draw a circle on the white board, and in the center, I'll write, "Self-Managing Company."
I'll say to the group, "You don't know exactly what I'm going to say about this, but right off the bat, how many of you want one of these?" Every hand in the room goes up.
Every ambitious entrepreneur in the world wants to have their own Self-Managing Company.
This 60-minute book will provide you and your Unique Ability® Team with the eight crucial entrepreneurial mindsets necessary to make this a daily, exciting breakthrough for the next 25 years and beyond.
