He's taught his techniques and offered his guidance to many top athletes, businesspeople, entrepreneurs, and entertainers who seek his proven philosophies. Through twenty-eight years of coaching and training the top performers in a variety of fields, Dr. Spencer has identified what it is that these highly successful people have and do that enables them to make it so far in life. In Turn It Up!, Dr. Spencer shows readers what makes these highly accomplished individuals reach the top consistently and translates their philosophies--and his--to ensure that readers everywhere can implement his proven program for success and turn up their lives a notch, not only into their daily routines, but into the way they think, the way they plan, and the way they live their lives.

1 Why Success Matters Real success is finding your lifework in the work that you love. David McCullough Perhaps no other factor is as poignant and ubiquitous to the human experience as the drive to succeed. The impulse to be successful is an indelible, deeply etched primal instinct that profoundly influences each and every one of our thoughts and actions. Everyone defines success in his or her own personal way. Regardless of variations, each definition conveys that success happens the instant a beneficial outcome occurs. When a childhood gymnast performs their first cartwheel perfectly, an astronomer discovers a new comet, a musician has their first hit, or a librarian correctly places a book back on the bookshelf, they have all met the criteria for success and have become a success by doing so.'Can I be successful?' is a question everyone asks at some point. 'Yes, of course you can' is the resounding answer. Success, however, is not reserved just for high-powered Type A personalities or driven individuals. As mentioned in the introduction to this book, we're all born winners. Our inheritance at birth endows us with the innate capacity and drive to succeed; it's just that most of us never learned or have simply forgotten it, or we don't trust our ability to achieve our goals. Yet success is an easily learned skill that anyone can master. Successful people aren't embarrassed or guilty about their success; they recognize and embrace it as the most fundamental force driving their life experience.Becoming a consistent success is extremely straightforward in concept: It requires only the timely completion of specific tasks within a well-structured plan that achieves a predetermined outcome. One or two random successes don't make someone a success. Success is a skill that, when practiced diligently, becomes second nature and consistently produces the desired outcomes, creating a productive, vital, and passionate life.In broad brushstroke terms, success has a competitive side to it. Every moment of your life pits your desire, knowledge, and ingenuity against your potential, history, and destiny. If your talents, great ideas, and skills are consistent with your plans and actions, achieving your goals becomes commonplace. Conversely, scattered and ill-founded plans, coupled with insufficient skills or resources, predictably lead to sub-par goal achievement and a less fulfilled life.Success matters to everyone desiring a highly vital, exciting, and rewarding life. Have you ever known anybody whose life ambition was to be a loser or unsuccessful? Can you imagine someone saying to his wife 'Hey, honey, I'm going to go to bed early tonight so I'll have plenty of energy to go out and fail tomorrow.' This, of course, may seem like an absurd example, yet it reflects the subconscious 'failure mentality' countless people reenact day after day in their lives. Many people, if not most, have more confidence in their capacity to fail than to succ
