[02:25] – Perception of self and internal beliefs must be changed to reach new heights

[02:35] – Reference to Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz as a foundational book on the game of transformation

[02:50] – People can be trained on the right things to do, but they can’t implement them if those actions lie outside of their identity

[14:51] – He’s always educated himself on personal development, but it wasn’t until he went to events that he began to truly transform and feel “on fire”

[15:30] – Events remind him of who he is and who he wants to be

[16:45] – The value of networking at events

[17:10] – Our identity begins to shift when we are surrounded by positive, uplifting, and inspiring people

[17:54] –Gerald’s mission is to help people spread their message, have more freedom, and live their purpose at a bigger level

[19:00] – Everyone wants this, but not everyone makes the identity shift to make it happen; people tend to cling to what they know

[20:20] – When people see positive change through their work with Gerald, it’s life-changing and exciting

[21:14] – A gift from Gerald: A 30-minute breakthrough strategy session
