Louis Lautman – an article about making it happen.

The YES Movie

Louis Lautman, producer.

Louis relates how his attitude got this project up and running.

I woke up last year on my 30th birthday and thought to myself that there had to be more. I knew I was an entrepreneur, but wondered if I was still a young entrepreneur. I had always gravitated toward other young successful people and others always wondered how I did so much at such a young age, but I knew I had more in me. I thought about all the amazing young people I had met over the years, then started researching more and thought that there were some amazing stories out there that I bet most of the world didn’t know about and would love to hear.
I wondered what would be the best way to get the stories out about these amazing young geniuses, then it hit me…make a movie. I loved the idea, only…I had never made a movie before or even knew how. But I knew I could do anything in this world and if I let this chance pass me by, I would never get over it.
I am all about taking action and seizing opportunity and I knew that this is where my path was meant to go…or at least I said so! I believe you don’t find your destiny, but de-fine your destiny.
I began to intensely research every aspect of the film world, from pre-production to post production to marketing to distribution and everything in between.

I was like a mad scientist researching around the clock as if I was coming up with a cure for cancer and after about 2 months of research, I began the pre-production phase of the YES movie. I could have been nervous, but I decided to be excited, at every step of the way from interviewing production companies to arranging our shots to setting up a 3 month tour of the United States of America.
I was fired up and ready to meet the nations most successful young self-made multi-millionaires. As the production crew and I took off around the country, I look back and think about all the amazing people I met along the way and each person taught me so much about business and life and true happiness. As a first time film producer, I felt very happy that I made it to the production phase. Many filmmakers and people who want to start their own business never see their dream come to fruition for many reasons, but the biggest excuse I hear is that they don’t have the money.

I can tell you that “WHATEVER your dream is, there is always money out there to make it a reality!” If you want coaching on how to find the funds, you will have to watch our movie, I can tell you that everything went perfect if I wanted, because I believe that everything did…however, that is not to say that things didn’t go over budget, we got lost, we missed appointments, we missed flights, equipment broke, we were stuck in traffic, blah, blah, blah, blah!
None of that matters, what matters is that I spent 3 months on the road and got the footage that I needed and It Rocked. So as we went into the post-production phase, I was fortunate to hook up with Emmy-Award winning writer Robyn Symon and Lifestyle Production guru Bernard Bonomo. With this awesome combination, our film was sure to be “World Class.”
Again, I could tell you about the challenges in the relationship or re-arranging our schedules or losing data in computer crashes and the challenges of setting the strategy to make this the best film ever made on the topic of young entrepreneurship, but as you will learn when you watch the film is that successful entrepreneurs all go through “stuff” and its not the “stuff” that matters, but how you react to that stuff that matters and what you do about it. What I did was make a “World Class Film” despite all the “stuff” that happened along the way..
We are just now finishing up post production and putting on the final touches of this revolutionary film and have just hired the best Public Relations Firm in the World, Stellar Communications headed by Kate Romero and John Stellar. These two highly-conscious PR alchemists will connect the dots that need to be connected to bring this film into a world-wide phenomenon status.
As more and more media outlets are beginning to spotlight my journey and story of the other amazing young entrepreneurs in our film, the world is beginning to open their mind to looking at what is possible for a young person in terms of making a positive impact in the world and taking ownership of their destiny.

If you are even remotely thinking about starting a business or want to bring your existing business to the next level, you must join the Young Entrepreneur Society and see the film that started this society. If you are still reading this, you know I am talking to you…you have made it this far, don’t turn back…you are on the right path. Trust yourself and your creativity and genius within, it was divinely put there. I would love to hear all about you becoming the next YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR!

Great quotes from Tony Robbins.

Here are some great quotes from Tony Robbins that will get you thinking differently.
A great coach of mine.

A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”

“You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.”

“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”

“Most people fail in life because they major in minor things.”

“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”

“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.”

“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.”
Anthony Robbins Quotes

“I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.”

“How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to?” Anthony Robbins Quotes

“If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results.”

“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
Anthony Robbins Quotes

“In life you need either inspiration or desperation.”
Anthony Robbins and Quotes

“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

“It not knowing what to do, it’s doing what you know.”
Anthony Robbins and Quotes

“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.”
Anthony Robbins and Quotes

“It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.”
Anthony Robbins and Quotes

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.”
Anthony Robbins and Quotes

“Live with passion!”

“Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.”

“My definition of success is to live your life in a way that causes you to feel a ton of pleasure and very little pain – and because of your lifestyle, have the people around you feel a lot more pleasure than they do pain.”

“Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year – and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!”

“Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment”

“Passion is the genesis of genius.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.”

“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”
Tony Robbins Quotations

“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
Tony Robbins Quotations

“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”
Tony Robbins Quotations

“Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”

“Success comes from taking the initiative and following up… persisting… eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?”
Tony Robbins Quotations

“Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” Tony Robbins Quotations

“Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.”

“Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.”

“The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.”

“The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck.”

“The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.”

“The path to success is to take massive, determined action.”

“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.”

“The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds, bodies, and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our behaviors.”

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”

“There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“There’s always a way – if you’re committed.”

“There’s no abiding success without commitment.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse to change any and every part of your life in an instant.”

“Want to learn to eat a lot? Here it is: Eat a little. That way, you will be around long enough to eat a lot.”

“We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it’s not the events that matter most to us, but rather, it’s how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future.”

“We aren’t in an information age, we are in an entertainment age.”

“We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.”

“We will act consistently with our view of who we truly are, whether that view is accurate or not.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.”

“Whatever happens, take responsibility.”

“When people are like each other they tend to like each other.”

“You always succeed in producing a result.”
Tony Robbins Quotes

“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.”
Anthony Robbins and Quotes

“You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events – how we interpret them – that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow.”
Tony Robbins Quotations
