Who's the guru behind the guru...


Whos the guru behind the guru - Toby photoMy son Toby, who you probably know by now, is truly an inspiration.

For the last six weeks, he's been in a body cast to heal an operation he had on his hip back in September.

Let me tell you, it's been a tough six weeks. Every night, he's been up with me and/or Michelle because of cramping in his legs.

I've been getting up at 2am every night for a couple of hours to rub his legs and help him get back to sleep.

Despite all those early mornings, Toby has been HAPPY, despite the frustration of being in a body cast for such a long time.

There's a lot of wisdom we can all learn from Toby about how he views life and obstacles that get in his way.

They key lesson is that he doesn't acknowledge obstacles, he just moves on and deals with what is in front of him.

He doesn't complain, make excuses or give up.

I know a lot of business owners that could learn a few things from Toby.

Almost every week, we receive emails from people complaining they are having trouble growing their businesses and they are reaching their end point, many ready to throw in the towel.

It's amazing how the characteristic of RESILIENCE is so rare in many business owners today.

Why is that?

Because in general, as a society, we have become complacent.

We want to find an "easy button" to fix our problems. When "life happens", we want to crawl under our beds and hope everything will get better.

“Hopeium” doesn't work, but resilience and self-confidence does.

If you're trying everything you can to grow your business and you are feeling "stuck", don't give up.

If you're working "in" your business and not "on" your business every day, then stop for a moment, and THINK how you can change that.

When perceived obstacles get in your way, go around them.

Look, life can be tough, even for successful people, and if there is one core lesson that we can all learn from Toby, it's this:

Be an inspiration to yourself, don't let anything get in your way, and look beyond your immediate circumstances.

(Toby's cast should be coming off next week and he'll probably be out playing soccer with the other kids very soon. If you'd like some incredible insights from Toby, grab a copy of "Toby's Book: How To Stay Centered In Your Personal and Business Life", visit

Here’s a video clip I played for my 7-Figure Trust-Based Mentor Program members at our 3-day Summit last week in Sydney, they loved it and hopefully you will too (please share your comments below):

To your success,

Thanks for sharing your own story, Toby is a great leader to follow!
And yes, we (the people) think that we need to learn from the first time and therefore give up too early. But we need to DO IT again and again and again until it's really complete. Whatever it takes... Best Regards
Collin, Austin, Texas
Very inspirational thank you for sharing

Whilst waiting outside my local coffee shop on Wednesday morning, i heard someone beeping the horn at me, it had already been a stressful start to the day, i turned around and though who the heck is that? I saw the passenger window roll down expecting someone shouting abuse or saying something unpleasant, instead what i got was a wave accompanied with a huge smile from the happiest little boy just heading out for the day in the car. That boy was Toby, Ari's son. I learned a valuable lesson, dont jump to conclusions before you know all the facts. I had a great day and am still smiling now on friday evening. Have a great weekend everyone and smile!

We are but stewards to those precious angels that God sends to us which we call sons and daughters. Within them are instilled life's lessons in wisdom. If we allow ourselves to feel the love then those lessons are unveiled. Thank you for sharing those that you have unveiled with your love.

Hey Ari,
Keep the truth coming... This stuff is our truth mate because when we are on a roll it's all really very good and when we are not going as well we can use this to come back again and we always do.

Thanks for caring enough to share.
