How The Dots Has Joined Up For Ron
But how has he escaped from where he was, and how has he balanced his love of making money with his love of spending money on the things that light him up inside, such as his passion for fast cars, motorcycles and speedboats.
Even going as far as attempting to smash the motorbike land speed world record back in 2009, which stood at 360mph.
Yep on his super fast motorbike he set out to go over 400mph and become the worlds fastest man on a bike.
This is going to be a fascinating discussion about belief, courage, persistence and I’m sure more than a bit of luck
But where did he come from? Where did life begin for this passionate and inspirational Britain?
And has he seen a trait that holds most people back from belief in a world of financial abundance and enjoyment?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Ron G Holland
During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:
How he wrote his first book in just three weeks (back in 1977) and it is still bringing in royalties every month after 40 years.
How so many of us miss out on the simple fact that we should just do something that we can already do, and make a good living out off.
Why so many of us do not realise that if we make one dollar on the internet then we have already seen the roots of wealth start, but we do not allow it to grow.
Why we should all look to create masterminds as early as possible, to tap into the knowledge and passions of minds everywhere.
Why he believes in the words of Napoleon Hill “Whatever man can conceive, and believe then they can achieve” and works on those words everyday.

And I’m sure more than a bit of luck. But where did he come from? Where did his life begin for this passionate and inspirational Britain? And as he seen the trait that holds most people back from belief in a world of financial abundance and enjoyment? Well, let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start join up dots with the one and only Ron G. Holland. How are you sir?
Ron G Holland [2:47]
Hello David of what an intro I don’t think I can talk bad. Now I have to say David I’m absolutely delighted to be here. And I’ve really been looking forward to this because I really do believe there’s on I can bring to the party. Oh, you can
David Ralph [3:02]
just the fact that you you you want to go 400 miles per hour, which we’re going to talk to you later. But well, I was reading that. And I was thinking that that’s madness really, to will was you only need a little bump and you’re over? So does does it say a lot about your life? Are you somebody that not only looks at the possibilities, but kind of is willing to overcome potential risks to get to the possibilities?
Ron G Holland [3:30]
Absolutely. And I have to say David, I think that’s an understatement. And we’ll be talking about that later. But I really do think you’ve got to go for it in life. You’re only here once and we’ll be talking about many of my experiences. And indeed some of the people I’ve helped become millionaires over the years. And and indeed what it is that they’ve had to do. And it’s always a mental kind of switch, you’ve got to throw in your own mind to get you out from where you are and escape from where you are into into kind of moving onward and upward.
David Ralph [4:01]
Would you have that in abundance is that something that has come from your parents is that in the environment that you grew up in where was was life for the young run?
Ron G Holland [4:11]
Oh, life for the young guy was I was brought up in sorry. We have to say we didn’t have a lot of money when we were growing up. But it was just something that I got fascinated in and started reading all sorts of books, all the old favorites of the time, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, lazy man’s way to riches, success through a positive mental attitude, all of that and I just got so fired up. In the end, I started writing books myself, and and helping people and I’ve been doing that, as you say for nearly 40 years now. first book came out in 1977, which even for me is hard to believe. But Incidentally, that first book is still bringing in royalties every month. I can’t believe it. I even after all that time. It’s still selling globally. His just absolutely incredible.
David Ralph [5:01]
Well, it came out in the same year as Star Wars. So it’s the same thing. Isn’t it really showing my age now? It’s a cash cow on boats.
Ron G Holland [5:11]
Unbelievable. Yeah. And there’s a story of course, how I how I came to write
David Ralph [5:16]
that book as well. You tell us about it.
Ron G Holland [5:19]
Yeah. Well, you say, as a young man, I kind of finished my apprenticeship as a carpenter. And I wanted to do something that I was passionate about. And I decided to get out of the building trade and open up my first motorcycle shop. And I did that when I was 20. And because I was passionate about it, I absolutely loved it. And it was the boom time for motorcycles. Very, very quickly. I ended up with the biggest chain of motorcycle shops in South London had seven shops and I love telling the story from the stage. I accidentally picked up two furniture shops on the 40 bedroom hotel on the way and I had so much fun. I really was living my dream. And that was it because motorcycles was my passion still is my passion. But I was doing something that I absolutely loved on this rapid expansion program. Obviously I I didn’t realize at the time, but I really didn’t know too much about business. I just did it. And I got in massive financial problems huge. And fortunately for me, I met an old Irishman who’s on astute old boy Seamus O’Rourke. And he took me under his wing and helped me turn around my mini Empire. And we made a fortune. And at that time, I was reading lazy man’s way to riches by Joe Carbo and he was talking about my mail order business. And he said, he said, you could write a little book about something that you’re passionate about. And just advertise it and sell it and you’ll make a fortune. And I thought to myself, well, what I’m passionate about his business, and I had just turned my motorcycle shops around without the old Seamus our role he helped me. But I thought I bet there’s a lot of people out there who are in financial problems in that kind of predicament. And they would love to know the formula. But I used and of course, when I wrote the book, it all became very, very clear that every business has to slash their overheads increase their profit, margins, indulge in cost effective marketing. And I just put all of this detail together in layman’s terms. And and the thing just took off, we sold about 50,000 copies, we were using full page adverts in exchange and Mark x when it was a printed magazine. I don’t think he’s even out there anymore. The Internet kind of started off, but nevertheless, in the day, it had a massive circulation. And we flew with the book. So that’s how I got into writing and that immediate kind of big success. And I’ve been writing ever since.
David Ralph [7:52]
So so so what did Seamus have? Because he sounds like a kind of Irish Yoda. He comes out of nowhere. And he just and it’s not going to be stopped was references all the way through. But But what was it that he had that was quite simply life changing for you?
Ron G Holland [8:06]
Oh, it was incredible. So you’ve got to understand I’m a young man. I’ve got seven motorcycle shops to furniture shops, I mean, desperate financial trouble. And I’m a young guy, this older guy came along gray haired and we got chatting, and there was no pulling the wool over his eyes. He said, Look, he said I consent to you in massive financial trouble. He said, I’ve been helping companies all my life. He said, I think I could probably help you. I said, Well, do you know anything about motorcycles? He didn’t know anything about motorcycles. He said what I understand is about business, about trimming your overheads increasing your profit margins any anyway, I was in such trouble. I knew if I didn’t run with him, I was going to fall over anyway. So I said, Okay, we got a deal. And of course, from day one, he started turning my life around slashing overheads, increasing the sales, doing cost effective marketing, showing me how to think showing me how to get creative and showing me some real kind of business acumen sales skills, because everything I’ve done before that before we came on the scene was all just done on the hoof I used to just say, yes, yes, yes, the people, you know, want to buy a motorbike shop? Cause I don’t have it yet. No. But he started to kind of put some real thinking behind it. And, and in a way making me astute. So a lot of what I have learned over the years has come from mentors, and Seamus was was one of them. And indeed, I still mentioned him in all of my books, and even talking about him now. And I do believe guys these days are gotta get mentors, because they can really help you get ahead quickly.
David Ralph [9:41]
Well, this is one of the things I was going to touch on. And I know about on the entrepreneurial leave. And this show isn’t about making everyone entrepreneurs, but he’s about trying to make sure that everyone is happy in their life. Yeah. But when you start off doing something you might be doing as a side hustle. So the last thing that you want to do, or the last thing that many people want to do is pen of money on something that they feel maybe this isn’t it, maybe this is just a stepping stone towards somewhere. But you would say, if you can spend it, find somebody who knows what you you want to do and has done it before, because it will fast track you.
Ron G Holland [10:18]
Yeah, I’m saying even more than that David I’m not saying don’t spend money, I still spend money. And I’ll give you some examples a little bit later, I’m still investing in self education, buying books, audios paying for advice. And even these days, I pay big law firms, accountancy firms for professional advice to get me ahead of the game. So I just believe whatever you’re going to invest in, whether it’s books, audio programs, in a mentorship program, getting somebody to hold your hand, that is an investment in your future. And so many times mentors, or books or audio programs can give you that paradigm shift very, very quickly. And if the book is written properly of the audio program is good. You go Wow, that is just kind of obvious. And once you’ve got yourself educated, you can’t on educate yourself. You won’t say to yourself, well, I’ve heard of doing it that brilliant way. But I’m going to continue doing it this stupid way. It doesn’t work like that. You’d be kicking yourself. You say no, no, I picked up this brilliant night here. Tonight. If you using the internet, you’re not going to suddenly stop using it is brilliant. It works. It’s a quantum leap, you’re not going to go back to doing it the old fashioned way. You know, so all of this education you can get on board and absorb and assimilate it because I do believe a lot of people don’t assimilate what they read and listen to. They’re too quick to get on to the next audio or the next book or the next workshop. They don’t assimilate and put into practice what I’ve learned now one of my big tricks has always been to to do it. So I mentioned Joe Carbo lazy man’s way to riches. He said, write a book. So I didn’t kind of go on. I thought, well, I’m going to write a book and I wrote the book in the next three weeks, I just sat down and did it. But I know a lot of people would will have read that write a book. And what they’d have done is picked up the next book, instead of writing a book and creating a product of their own, that they’d gone on to the next book, The next course the next seminar. That is
David Ralph [12:21]
mindset, though, isn’t it? It is and getting us right back to the young Ron again, when you as a small child, were you always somebody that would just take action, take imperfect action? Because, yeah, if you said to somebody write a book, even though they know the content, they would go, Well, I’m not a writer, and I don’t know how to do that. And they convince themselves instantly. So wherever you got this ability to go, yeah, okay, within three weeks, I’m gonna deliver a book.
Ron G Holland [12:49]
It’s, it’s fascinating. I don’t really know where I’ve got it. But all I know, is whatever life throws at me, I’ve got a jump on it. Same as when I became a public speaker, I, of course, I wasn’t a public speaker, I could teach myself how to become a public speaker. Same as being a business mentor, people say don’t run, can you help me do this? Can you help to do that? So you step up to the plate and you do it. And I just I absolutely believe action. Mind power is massive, right? It is absolutely massive. But I believe mine action has a little bit of an edge on mine power. But I do believe when you get the two forces to come come together, once you’ve harnessed your billion dollar bio computer, and combined that with action. That’s when I think you become an indomitable force and really start to rock and roll and move forward. And a lot of people don’t combine the two,
David Ralph [13:40]
you are so excited on you. I’m
Ron G Holland [13:42]
genuinely excited because this is something I’ve been working with for for nearly 40 years now. And and helping people motivating people clicking ordinary people in same as what Seamus did with me, taking ordinary people in and helping them become extra ordinary. And I know people today, by the time we finish, there will be some people who have that paradigm shift, they’ll go click got it, know what I’ve got to do. And this will absolutely definitely today’s talk will be a game changer for them. It cannot be and I know because I’ve been doing it a long, long time. And I help people get that penny to drop.
David Ralph [14:21]
Well, I can see that. But the amazing thing is, and I’m gonna have to ask the question, how old are you on
Ron G Holland [14:28]
65. But every year now I’m getting younger and younger and younger. So every year now I’m taking off the year. My mom was 97. And I think she’s doing the same and my sister and I have got a bet we we reckon she’s gonna last at least 100. And for
David Ralph [14:44]
this so happy you is because you’ve been doing it for 40 years.
Unknown Speaker [14:47]
David Ralph [14:48]
most people by the end of time they’ve done 40 years, I think and I can’t wait to just go fishing and play golf and stuff. You look like you could do it for another 40 years and another 40 years. On top of that we use extremely lucky to find your thing? Or is it the fact that if you put yourself in enough opportunities, you’re more likely to find the thing that lights you up?
Ron G Holland [15:10]
No, I think luck does play a little part in it. But what I tell people these days, and I’ve had to learn this myself, is when you get involved in something, you need to look out for the little green shoots. And sometimes I’ve started businesses, but little green shoots have been there. And I thought to myself, those little green shoots are never going to make me rich, they’re never going to turn into a field of maize or golden call and and I’ve walked away from it. And it’s only like 20, 3040 years later, I’ve said to myself, Wow, I didn’t know what I was sitting on. So these days, I think if people young guys are out there now thinking they’re gonna make money on the internet. I think it’s so important to spot when that first $1 comes in or one pound whatever it is, because then that’s a little green shoot, and you go well, how did I make that little bit happen? Because the internet lends itself to a massive kind of rollout. If you can get $1 coming in, you can get $10 coming in, if you can get $10 coming in, you can get 100 or 1000. And you can roll it out it is it is so big, it’s vast, but most people that they poo poo, the little shoots, the little green shoots, they don’t recognize them as being the absolute gems that you build business on the back of too many people David out there these days are looking, they’ve got back, get rich, quick, fast buck syndrome in them. And if it’s if they haven’t got their Lamborghini in a week’s time, or manifested their million dollars in a week’s time, whatever it is they doing, they give up and look for an easy to climb. And what I’m saying stick with what you’ve got, and find out how to turn those little green shoots into our kind of field of maze and growing it. And that’s the real secret. And that’s where the creativity comes in.
David Ralph [17:00]
And it is a problem, isn’t it? We talked about it on this show as like the X Factor or the American Idol syndrome where people think they get they have to sit in a room. They sing two songs, and then suddenly they’re playing Madison Square Garden. But everything that you do in life, there’s got to be effort, isn’t it and my youngest siloed, about five or six years ago, I got not stung. But I got seduced by the kind of get rich quick schemes because they seem so appealing. But you realize once you’ve been in them for a while, but the only people that are getting rich are the people setting the schemes, not you. So how does somebody out there the listener? What’s the best way for them to start getting a shoot so that they can see something that they can believe in? And realize that yes, there’s a path here that might give me be escaped from where I am, which one of your books talks about?
Ron G Holland [17:50]
I have to say David, I think that’s a very good question. And I say to people, how do you get your own little shows? One of the bits of advice I give people is simple. Do something that you can do. Right? I’m going to say again, because it’s profound. Do something that you can do right? Now why do I say that? Well, the internet is so vast, you could if you like you could say well, I’m going to do something with YouTube. Now the point is, if you’re not good on camera, and can make a little three or four minute video, and get people’s tongues hanging out and get them excited. Don’t try doing stuff on YouTube, right? Yeah, something you can do. If you’re not good at talking about getting people excited and motivated and giving some real good business advice. Don’t do podcasts, right? If you’re no good at writing, don’t try to make money out of Kindle books. Right? Do something that you can do. And unfortunately, I see so many people these days because there’s so much guff and hyperbole out there. They’re trying do something that they can’t do. And I see people sitting in front of a computer, wondering where all the hits are coming from wondering where all the traffic is coming from. And when you start drilling down on the beat becomes patently obvious. This person doesn’t even know his his way around the his own computer, let alone the internet. And I say to them, Look, do something that you can do. So true story. I’m going back a year or two now. Lovely, lovely lady by the name of Sarah. in tears. I said What’s the matter, Sarah, she says I’ve been sitting at this computer for two years now I got sold this package ladies a soda thing, I forget how much you paid for it. But I’ve got no traffic, I can’t make any sales, I can’t get the hit. It’s a absolute things us up on the third fourth floor of a block of apartment. I said Look, I said you’ve got such a lovely, lovely personality, I said, I don’t really think you’re ever going to click it on the internet. Because you don’t read you haven’t really got your mind around the vastness of the the internet and attraction marketing making all this happen. But I believe you could get into serious money ever so quickly by going down onto the street level, knocking on doors and selling something, right. So within a week or two, she had found a job a door to door selling job going not going into homes, but going into businesses. And she made more over the next three months then she had made in the last kind of couple of years. But she clicked that little paradigm shift in our brain, she clicked something Oh, do something I can do. I’m just sitting in front of that screen. It wasn’t happening for out on the street or ground level knocking on doors. And she had all that chat. And she was such a user friendly lady. She was talking to I forget what she was selling now. But she just made a bundle. And she’s probably still doing it. And I don’t suppose she’ll ever click into internet marketing. And unfortunately, even now I see people laying out huge money on internet marketing packages. And they’re not going anywhere. Because because it really does take quite a bit of time. It really does on my incomes are all kind of internet related. I have 20 books on Kindle. I do mentoring all over the world. I have a big, massive, massive network marketing organization that’s spread in, I don’t know, 20 or 30 countries. And I’m at the top of that. But it’s all done over the over the internet and Skype faking this way doing now. But the
David Ralph [21:24]
thing about Sarah’s story, and literally everyone out there, what you’re saying is absolutely right. And I don’t dismiss it at all, do something that you can do.
Unknown Speaker [21:33]
David Ralph [21:34]
when people can do it easily, they can’t quite grasp that they can gain value from it. It’s just like, oh, I’ve always been able to do that. Who’s going to pay for that? That is the mindset shift that needs to be overcome, isn’t it?
Ron G Holland [21:47]
Yeah, I think I think to be honest with you, I think there’s lots of mindsets that people need to click into, on what one of the things that I’d like to share with people today. And I have to it pains me to say it, but I I believe I have the six or 7 billion people on the planet. It’s I don’t suppose even 1% of those six or 7 billion people that recognize they’ve got a shoulder top computer. They’ve got a billion dollar bio computer, but they don’t think about it in those terms. They just go about life their day to day business. And they don’t think I’ve got a billion dollar computer on my shoulders, neck top computer. Why don’t I programming it properly, and then get into action with the things that it that it does for me. So if any, if people are going to take one thing away from today’s show, I’m saying sit down for a few minutes and consider the power of your own billion dollar bio computer. And are you harnessing it properly? Are you programming it properly? Because you’ll never get the right mindset. And you’ll never click in unless you get that bit of it working properly. And it pains me to see so many people clever, clever people. And they’re not programming their brains properly. They’re running on all the programs they got from their parents they got from school they got from their neighbors they got from Fred down the pub, but they’re not deliberately putting in programs of their own that will serve them well.
David Ralph [23:25]
They did you have parents about in somewhere and all of our parents really brainwashing
Unknown Speaker [23:30]
their parents. Yes.
David Ralph [23:34]
Did your mom and dad give you the spirit to think creatively? Or were they like so many of our parents? Get a safe job one you know, you gotta go to get a safe job. Yeah,
Ron G Holland [23:46]
get a safe job. Yeah. And I have to tell you something funny. I told you. My mother is 97. And obviously she’s endeavor she’s seen me have businesses, but she’s never seen me have a job for anybody else. And even these days, she says, You got a job song. He got a job. You know, it’s just hilarious. So
David Ralph [24:06]
she thing that you do Ben if I if I sat down with with you? And so what does your son do? Pretty answer.
Ron G Holland [24:13]
Yeah. Oh, yeah. He’s never done anything. never done anything. I’ve never had a job you say? He’s never done anything so she can understand. And even as a young guy, I used to roll up in Aston Martin’s and trans AM’s and Rolls Royces. I think my parents think I was breaking down like cigarette machines and taking the money out of the back or nicking the lead off the church roof. But funnily enough, before my dad died, he had a stroke and everything, but I did take him out in one of my cars in I think it was an Aston Martin, actually. And I did take him around all my shops. And I think at least I put his mind to race before he died that I was a businessman not not a criminal.
David Ralph [24:55]
So what I want to do now at this point, I want to tell you the first about motivation, no speeches, and I always like to play it around about this time, because you have set out a blueprint so far, which basically, if anyone is listening to any of these shows, this is the one that you can go back and within the first 25 minutes, you will have an understanding about how to change your life. First of all, you need to be creative. Secondly, you need to find something that you can do, then you need to make your first dollar or your pound and then work out what you did, and then scale it up. And if you’re struggling in that point, then hire a mentor that can help you because I’ve been there. But more than that, you need to have the ability to take a risk and be creative. So this is Jim Carrey and he said these words recently, and then after we listen to them, Brian, we’re going to speak about them. This is Jim Carrey,
Jim Carrey [25:46]
my father could have been a great comedian, but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him. And so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant. And when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job. Our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want. So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.
David Ralph [26:12]
What do those words mean to you? Well,
Ron G Holland [26:14]
let me tell you David Jim Carrey.
He’s one of my greatest heroes of all time. Anyway, I love him as an actor. And he’s always been into the positive thinking stuff. They mean a lot to me. And I just want to go back to when I was, let me just think 14 years old, right? So I left school at the age of 14. And I didn’t know anything, but I couldn’t wait to get away. And my dad sat me down. He said, Look, Sandy says you’ve left school at the age of 14. He says what I insist you do? You’ve got to get yourself an apprenticeship. Now don’t mind what you do. You can become a carpenter or a plumber or a bricklayer. Get yourself an apprenticeship. Once you’ve served an apprenticeship and you’ve got some skills. After that you can do whatever it is you want to do with your life, but get an apprenticeship now my dad, he wasn’t a guy to be messed with. So I I tried to get a job as a bricklayer and all sorts of things. In the end, an old family friend helped me get an apprenticeship as an as a carpenter. And it was hard work the building trade but just see my dad proud. I saw it all the way through till the end. Now as I’m growing up in life doing my apprenticeship as a carpenter enjoying her. I got passionate about motorcycles as a young man, I love them and I joined a motorbike club started racing. All my money went on racing motorbikes. And basically, I finished my apprenticeship when I was 20, a young man. And I announced to the the people in the building trade and the people who had taught me the skills and all of that. I announced to them. I was going to set up a motorcycle shop now I should never forget it. This old guy came up to me and he put his arm around me. He says, I’ve got to tell you, young man, a few home truths. I said, Well, what’s that, Stan? He said, young lad. He says you’ve just finished your apprenticeship as a carpenter own joiner. And he says, I’m here to tell you. That’s what you will be doing for the rest of your life. Don’t throw it away. You’ve got the tools, you’ve got your city and gold certificates. You’re a carpenter and join up. Be proud of it. Right? And he says, Don’t do something stupid. Don’t go around telling everybody you’re going to set up your first motorcycle shop. The day you finish your apprenticeship as a carpenter and joiner. Now, as a young man, I was quite intimidated. This is this is one of the guys who’s taught me the trade from the age of 14 to 20. I’ve seen him every day when I got on. Great. And now he’s put his arm around me and told me Don’t be so stupid. And in in a way I thought wow, what what I must be some kind of Nutter. Maybe he’s right, because he was so serious. Anyway, fortuitously, for me, I said to Stan, I appreciate the advice. Let me go away and think about it overnight. Anyway, I thought about it overnight, and I went back to the carpentry shop the next day, handed in my notice. And very, very quickly, I set up my fast motorcycle shop. Okay, age 20. And I already touched on the fact it was booming time in the motorcycle era. I just went from strength to strength and one of the things I kind of intuitively started doing and I do mean this intuitively, I just started dreaming I started dreaming big. And I thought well, how could I be bigger than just one motorcycle shop. And I didn’t really understand the word mergers and acquisitions and expansion or all of that. But I’d read a book called Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. And he said in there, what you got to do is set up a mastermind group and bounce all your ideas around with your mastermind group and get feedback from them and let them help you with your dreams and aspirations. So you can imagine I’ve got one motorbike shot, I’ve got mechanics in there doing the repairs and I got salesman selling the motorbikes and I stood them up against the wall as though they were going to be sharp and I said I got an announcement. I said, Well, what’s that? I said, Well, as of the day you’re going to be my mastermind group. You know, they David they all fell out laughing or one of the guys laid on the floor, kicking his legs up and down like he hooting and snickering and laughing his head off like mastermind group. Anyway, but that was my beginnings of a mastermind group. And I said to these guys, look, you helped me build this and I didn’t know we were going to acquire other shops I said help me build this little one shop into an empire and all of you guys will get looked after you’ll get more wages, you’ll get deals our bikes, whatever is our look off the bat. It was kind of casual. But ever so quickly, my mastermind group took on board that I wanted to expand and ever so quickly they were coming back from Do you realize there’s a shot for sale at Hampton Court? Do you realize there’s a shop for sale in Croydon? Do you realize there’s a shop for sale in Wandsworth? Whatever, motorbike jobs and of course i i’d go off in my Aston Martin or my trains and I’d rock up at these places. And I’d talk to these people. And I’d acquire the shops. And as I told you earlier, I ended up with seven shops on my travels. I picked up to furniture shops, as well. But then
the I told you I nearly went bankrupt and the old Irishman came along but I had this little notion popped into my head after reedsy reading lazy man’s way to riches, write a book and turn it into a product. And of course the number of people that said to me, Look, you’re you’re a motorcycle database they didn’t have as a carpenter joiner. You’re a Motorcycle Dealer. You can’t become an author you can’t even write Don’t be so stupid. And not only that you’re not in the mail order business. And again, if I had listened to that evade, I wouldn’t have sat down and diligently wrote that book. Right. But I didn’t I thought well, Joe Carbo says it’s okay for me to become a writer. And if I write passionately about what I love, which was getting out of that, and making money and telling people now I did it, debt, free refine Angel gung ho, it’s still selling after 37 years. Maybe I could make something happen, right. So I took my own counsel. And in a way, I felt the fear, but I did it anyway. So shortly after having a massive success with debt free with financial Kung Fu, all of these books that I was imbibing, they used to come over from America Think and Grow Rich, lazy man’s way to riches, all of them, they were American books. And I thought the place me to be this was in the factor era. And the word was going last one to leave Britain Turn the lights out. And I thought, I’m going to go to America, I’m going to rock up in Beverly Hills, and I’m going to come a writer, and I did I wrote talking Grow Rich, which is the 1981 he came out. And that was the first book to incorporate NLP which I’m sure a load of guys on this program like those guys and gals, will have heard of neuro linguistic programming. I met this guy. He said, you’re writing a book. This was over there in the States. You’re writing a book called talk and Grow Rich. I said, Yeah, it’s a book about selling. He says, Yeah, but he says you ought to listen to that NLP stuff. I said, Well, I’ve looked at NLP I said, It’s nothing to do with what I’m doing. that’s to do with alcohol addiction, nicotine addiction, weight loss, hypnosis, he said, we’ll check it out anyway, well, I had looked at it. But by the time I’d met this guy three times, or four times over hot chocolate, and baklava, he convinced me to really look at the end LP stuff quite seriously. So I went out and invested in I know, 20 or 30, NLP books at that time, bought a lot. And, and I gobbled them up. And I incorporated them all in so into talking, grow rich. And in the back in the bibliography, I put a big long list of them. And I acknowledged where the stuff came from. And I know other big players came along after me, took all the NLP stuff never acknowledged it. And they they got sued, you know, local, and they lost. But I’ve never had a problem with the NLP guys. And I’ve always acknowledge where their stuff comes from. Mind you, I’d like to think we’ve moved ahead from NLP way way from that. And my latest book, millionaire secret blows the lid off fat and many other programs
David Ralph [34:46]
slow you down at the moment, your passion is amazing. But there’s so many parts of that story that I want to delve into. And one of the things that I found fascinating was you reading thinking Grow Rich, not
Ron G Holland [35:01]
100 times, by the way, 100 times? Yeah, I didn’t read it. I studied it. Well, today day, I’m then I’m like, put it into action.
David Ralph [35:09]
That’s the thing. And we’re in there. He talks about mastermind. Now I’ve read. I read him so once every year, and it’s a fascinating book. quite old fashioned in places. Yeah, for
Ron G Holland [35:19]
sure. It was written in 1937. Yeah, hundred years old now.
David Ralph [35:23]
But one of the things he talks about in there, and I thought it was fascinating at the time was obviously creating a mastermind. But what he did wasn’t necessarily create a mastermind of people that were alive,
Ron G Holland [35:35]
that created it in his imagination. Yeah,
David Ralph [35:37]
a virtual mastermind. So we actually thought, right, if I could surround myself with the greatest brains, who would I have? And he chose people that were dead and presidents and whatever. And he almost died. It kind of he went a bit loopy. Really, when you say,
Ron G Holland [35:53]
life, they nearly came
David Ralph [35:54]
down. Yeah, that’s right. He would have these conversations with them. Yeah. But what I’m doing there is you are setting yourself out to gain a wider concept of something on you, you’re you’re, you’re asking people’s help, and more minds that you get in, the more you can see a different way. And more often than not, it may not be the way but you would have been able to think of,
Ron G Holland [36:19]
yeah, let’s just talk about this for a minute, David because I think it’s fascinating, when you have a mastermind group, whether it’s a virtual one inside your own head in your own imagination, or real people, and I have a combination of both. And I think that is only half the story. Because what in effect you’re doing, you’re putting massive, massive input into your billion dollar via computer over and above the input that you would have doing it on your own right, massive, massive input. And obviously, the human brain, the mind responds to stimulation. So like Seamus O’Rourke stimulated my mind, the human mind responds to stimulation. So that is crucial, stimulating your hundred billion neurons. So they all start working together. But the bit that I want to move on to now and I think this is a bit that people miss, is once you’ve got that input into your bio computer, where people fall short, is that a don’t listen and hear the output. And the output is that small still voice, the little your recurs, the hunches, the guidance, the voice, the small still voice from the subconscious mind. So every day I go in to know mind I do my meditation, I listen to the small still voice is no good. Girl, cramming your brain full of all of this stuff from your mastermind group, more and more ideas, more and more input from other people. Unless you’re picking up on the output and the output, you can’t hear it. Because we got so much noise going going on around us in life and the internal dialogue that’s going on in our own mind. You can’t hear the small still voice until you slow the mind down until you can hear it.
David Ralph [38:12]
Now that’s the point, isn’t it? When do you do that? When you have this quiet moment?
Ron G Holland [38:17]
Oh, I’m I get up at five o’clock in the morning. And I if you lie, I love the expression, which is what I’m on. I’m on the five to nine. windmill. And most people are on the nine to five treadmill. Right? Well, yeah, you want to remember that. Because between five o’clock in the morning and nine o’clock, you can do your mind power work, you know, mind your meditation, you can you can do your goals, your affirmations, and you can hear that small still voice and again late at night. And it doesn’t matter whether I go to bed at 10 o’clock. 11 o’clock, 12. One two in the morning, I will always get up at five because he’s like the routine. And I I’d like to think I’ve become a mind power power. Because I do know you’ve got this next computer, the billion dollar buy a computer, most people are not using it. And I think it’s a crying shame. But like I say the using of it comes in two parts. One is cramming it full with all the information, how are you going to solve these problems? Are you going to come up with creative ideas, all of that. But you’ve also got to diligently listen for the output. And that million million millionaire secrets talks about those two things in massive, massive detail how to put the input in how to program your mind properly, and how to get the output how to extract the output. So when I’m taking on clients, clients don’t come to me because everything’s going well in their life clients come to me because they need help, either with marketing or raising money or solving problems. I don’t I take on their problems. And obviously I assimilate everything that I’ve got. And then I hand it over to my bio computer, I cry my brain full of their business, their problems, their industry, everything. But then I diligently listen for the output. And when I go back to them a few days later, and I say I’ve got an idea, I’ve got a solution. I blow them away because they say well, we’ve been at this problem for 18 months or 12 months or whatever, How come you’ve come up with that so quickly? Well, I deliberately programmed the bio computer like a computer and listened for the output.
David Ralph [40:29]
But so many people don’t allow themselves that that reflection, that quiet time the alarm goes, they throw themselves out of bed, they have a shower, brush their teeth, they get on the train, they go to work and all those kind of things. And literally every successful person that I have spoken to, and I’ve started mentioning this a lot in the shops, yeah, get up earlier than anyone else I’ve ever known.
Ron G Holland [40:50]
absolutely crucial, crucial. Mind bad time. know mine time is crucial. Just talking about Napoleon Hill for many obviously already book 100 times, I’m a great believer in it. He’s got one of the most all time successful, famous quotes in that book of all time. And it’s this, whatever the mind of man can conceive, and believe it can achieve. Okay, now let’s just break that down for a minute. Because every day of the week, I see people starting at the wrong end of the formula. They start at the achieve and they like you say they get up, they rush off the wall, all their business and they try really going for it achieve achieve achieve, I’ve got to make that happen. I’ve got to get the eight bedroom house, I’ve got to get the trains and the Aston Martin, the Bentley whatever it is achieve achieve achieve. And of course what happens they get very, very frustrated when they don’t achieve. And but Napoleon Hill didn’t say achieve achieve achieve. He said, conceive, conceive, conceive, well, what do I mean by conceive, create in mental image is what you’re trying to accomplish? conceive it in your hundred billion neurons over and over and over again. Even if it’s possible, what you’re trying to make happen. Get a very, very clear picture. And I’m not saying this is easy. No. It’s a real discipline. It’s difficult. Sometimes it’s not easy. But that’s what you’ve got to do, conceive, conceive conceive. Now, the incredible thing is, David, when you have conceived something, and you can see it clearly, in your mind’s eye because you’ve impregnated those hundred billion neurons or a goodly number of them with the vision of what you’re trying to accomplish. You’re suddenly believing? Why will you believe it? Because you will have seen a way of how to do it. Right?
David Ralph [42:51]
Yeah, I find
Ron G Holland [42:53]
this totally I do. It’s incredible and vain. The achieving of it happens very, very quickly. So the lesson to take away today is take on board conceive, conceive, conceive, once you’ve done that you will believe and then in the fullness of time you will achieve but put that work and effort into creating mental images.
David Ralph [43:17]
Well, what do you think is the hardest bit for people? Is it the conceive or the believe because they kind of go they’re so close on the but
Ron G Holland [43:26]
I think it’s the conceive, because I tell you for why I believe that, although there’s a huge amount being written about visualization, I don’t believe everybody’s taking the time out to visualize the things they’re trying to make happen and the things they’re trying to accomplish. And when I drill down on people, and obviously I mentor people all the time, and some of them have got massively successful businesses, and I break their businesses down for them into chunks that they can visualize, conceived and they say run before you came along, I really wasn’t kind of breaking down into a vision, my marketing program, I’ve really wasn’t visualizing my production line, I really wasn’t visualizing my fleet of salespeople or whatever it is. But when they start conceiving it, obviously then they start getting all of the ideas of how that could come together. But they only get those ideas of how it could come together. When they start listening to the small still voice. I it is an interesting thing you said about belief that this might blow you away. I think belief is vastly overrated, because the mind operates like a billion dollar computer, a supercomputer. Now, if you were programming a billion dollar supercomputer in the real sense, you wouldn’t say, well, that computer has to believe you would say that billion dollar supercomputer, all it’s gotta do to make it work make it function is to have the program minute, and then it will give me the output. And indeed, if you think of all of the things that we can do in our lives, you never believe that you could play the piano, drive a car, mow the lawn, whatever it is that you can do, you just put those programs in. And now you can do those things. If you can’t weld. So ride a bicycle, or whatever it is, is only because you didn’t put the programming. And I’m saying to you and the audience today, if you’re trying to become a multi millionaire, it’s no good trying to do that. On the I’ve got the program for sewing, or riding a bicycle, or cleaning windows or driving a car, whatever it is, all of those are programs you’ve got, but they’re not programs called make me a millionaire. If you’ve got to become a millionaire, you’ve got to put that program in your mind. And to do that, you got to start conceiving it and creating those people pictures in the neurons in your bio computer at a cellular level, you’ve really got to start seeing things happening via and venue start getting the output.
David Ralph [46:10]
So when you jumping from sort of business to find the personal stuff, when you attempted back in 2009 to break the land speed,
Ron G Holland [46:20]
we’re still building we’re still building that machine.
David Ralph [46:24]
So did that come to fruition?
Ron G Holland [46:26]
coming to fruition? They didn’t come to fruition on time? No, we’ve still we’re still in the workshops, we’re still developing it. Now. It’s fantastic. And it’s a massive, massive project. But we’re on track for making that happen.
David Ralph [46:37]
How’d you get the belief, obviously, because you’re throwing money at it left, right and center. And I imagine your wife must say, wrong. Oh, maybe you don’t tell her how much you’re spending on that.
Ron G Holland [46:50]
That’s exactly right. Now, it is a case of belief. But while we’re talking about motorbikes, obviously I do all my own. On the smaller bikes, in particular, not on the world record machine that we hope to break, because I’ve got a team of engineers on that. But on my own stuff, I do all my own tuning, welding and everything else. And when I’m doing sessions in the workshop, what what I often do, frequently, I photograph the bit that I’m working on, whether it’s supercharged or manifold, or clutch or gearbox, I photograph it with with my ipod or a camera, put it on the computer, then at home, I start kind of looking at back clock or whatever that is, and start putting that in my mind, how am I going to make that clutch or gearbox or supercharger work in the way I wanted it to. And I start to move all of bits and pieces into my neurons, right? And I start running all of those bits in my imagination. And then I come up with ideas on how how to modify them to make them work better. And it’s an incredible thing. But I absolutely know how I did that. And I got that idea from Tesla, who invented the Dynamo. And how he did that he invented the Dynamo in his own mind. And he, he wound the armature and all of that. And instead of saying to his engineers, I’ll go off and build that will test it. He ran the testing of the Dynamo in his own imagination. And he ran it for 1000 hours, in his own mind. At the end of 1000 hours. He took it apart, obviously, all in his imagination. He noticed some bits was scarf, some bits were wearing some bits were a bit Fein. So he really made for Dynamo, okay, he, in his own imagination, ran it for another thousand hours. And he kept doing this that it was perfect. Then he drew it out. And he said to the engineers all make 100 of those their dynamos and the engineers guy said, Well, we only do one, there’s a prototype No, no, he said, it’s all right there ready to go. These are all tested. So they, they just chunk them out. And of course, they were absolutely perfect from day one. But he’d run the test in his brain. And in a way, that’s what I do when I’m tuning motorcycle engines. And of course, that’s what anybody listening to this shows trying to make money or create a business on the internet, they need to be visualizing all those components, right across the internet, how are they going to get the clicks and the hits and sell product and make it happen and do the marketing and they need to do that in their imaginations fast?
David Ralph [49:35]
Well cause that that’s fascinating. But what I want to do now, Ron is actually take you back to 2005. Because Steve Jobs made a speech. And it’s the theme of the whole show. That’s why we call it join up dots and he stood up in front of a group of graduates who are just about to leave University. And he said some fascinating words. And I want to play these words to you now, and then we’re going to talk about them afterwards. This is Steve to
Steve Jobs [50:00]
of course, it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards 10 years later. Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leaves you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference.
David Ralph [50:35]
So can you see what he’s saying in those words?
Ron G Holland [50:38]
Absolutely, absolutely. And that’s my sentiment. And obviously, I’ve got things to add to it as well. As you can imagine, I can
David Ralph [50:47]
always imagine that you have to add something to it run. So So what kind of resonance does that have with you? What kind of parts of your life can you look back on and go
Unknown Speaker [50:55]
David Ralph [50:56]
because of that, and the actions I’ve took is led to where I am now.
Ron G Holland [51:01]
I absolutely believe that you’ve got to keep dreaming, and never giving up on your own bio computer. And what I see these days, and it is a little bit sad. There’s so much kind of hyperbole out there and hype, that everything happens easily. Everything happens quickly. But I don’t necessarily believe that I think you’ve got to put the energy, the work and effort in. And more than anything, never give up on your own dream and your own aspirations. And I believe a lot of people give up Far, far too quickly. They don’t manifest their Lamborghini in seven days. So they give up on it. They don’t become a millionaire in a week. So they give up on it, they don’t get their partner of their dreams in a month. So they give up on it and they settle for second best. And I believe having that faith in your own, what I call your neck top computer, your bio computer is absolutely crucial. And it’s that bio computer when you start probing grabbing those hundred billion neurons, that helps you join up dots and and obviously, that processing in the mind in the bio computer can project you right into the future. And it’s interesting that the human being is the only animal on earth that has got that capability, what we call the imagination to project into the future. And I just think that’s absolutely crucial to be thinking ahead all the time in pictures, visualizing the things that you’re trying to accomplish. And believe you May, the joining of the dots will happen but clearer your vision, the more the dots will join up in in many times and it in an uncanny way.
David Ralph [52:44]
Because I think that’s the key word uncanny, I have so many things that happened to me during this show. But I think how did that happen? And I say this all the time. And a lot of people got always lucky. And like I know, it’s all the little things that you’ve done in the past I’ve kind of led that somehow you can
Ron G Holland [53:01]
absolutely I agree with that. Yeah, does have a little bit of play in it as well. I’m sure if that but all of these things, what I call the cosmic jigsaw puzzle, all comes together. And I’ve noticed that clip, if you can visualize in concrete form the things you’re trying to get to happen. The joining up, the dots will happen.
David Ralph [53:27]
Do you have a big.in your life when you look back? Can you see where Ron g Holland was born? Can you see a moment that really what was it when you got the mastermind together in the gay marriage was that one of the sort of big dots in your life that changed changed your path. I
Ron G Holland [53:42]
think that I think that was one of the dots, I have to say, I think one of the biggest dots was becoming a writer. And I do believe the times that I am absolutely the most happy that I could be is when I’m creating about creating could be Tinker tinkering with a motorcycle engine. But more often than not on the computer, creating a product. And just out of interest. When I’m creating a product, a book, I make a dummy of that book before I start so I can visualize it, I make up a cover, I stick it on another book. I fondle it, I play with it, I pretend the book is already in print. And if I if people out there listening, whatever product you’re trying to create, if you can make a mock up of a or a dummy that you can have there and play with and fumble and pretend it’s real, that really helps the coming of it together that joining up of the dots, and all sorts of ideas and coincidences, and all sorts will happen for you. But but that to me was one of the big the biggest dots of all. The other really big dot and I’m not joking about this is the realization in my own mind that are not using my mind enough, can’t express that enough. And I think we touched upon it earlier that a lot of people go around with their neck top computer completely oblivious that they’ve got these billion dollar bio computer. And I really did have a realization, start using your mind more and more and more. And these days, I’m unbelievably aware, acutely aware that I’ve got this billion dollar by a computer and I need to program it properly for me to accomplish not just for myself, but for my clients, my listeners, my audience. And don’t forget, I’ve got a global audience practically in every country in the world. And my books are in many different languages. So I’m helping those people. And we mentioned earlier, I’ve helped create numerous millionaires world champions, but it’s always helping them click and join the dots of their own mind, get their neck top computer working. So so when you was a small child, was the computer just dumb sort of on standby? Were you not using it to where you are now, when it when you’re talking about a small child is a very interesting thing. Because I definitely had some kind of little awakenings going on in my mind, even when I was five, that there’s more to this world than meets the eye. And of course, then I couldn’t express it. But I was brought up on a farm in the countryside, lots of silence, stillness and solitude. And I really did get those although I wasn’t obviously programming my mind, I would get little kind of glimpses of the power of of the mind and the brain. It used to kind of resonate with me, it was quite incredible. And we haven’t really got time to go into it now. But some profound experiences as a youngster.
David Ralph [56:52]
And then we’re coming back to silence all the time, aren’t we? That’s a key thing. To be able to turn the telly off, take your mp3 free off, and just sit there.
Ron G Holland [57:03]
Yeah, what why don’t I wrote talking grow rich in 1981, which is a long time ago. This was a book on selling and making money. But the whole first chapter was called the principle of power. And the formula in there is all about silence, stillness and solitude. And Edison was asked the secret of his success. And he said, when you become quiet, it just dawns on you. And I can’t express that enough. And most people are not quiet enough to hear the small still voice. So say that again. When you become quiet, it just dawns on you, and that dawning is so loud, it’s like a Eureka experience. Do this, do that phone him, go here, buy this sell that it’s incredible. But you get that Eureka. From the silence. I cannot. silence in your life is a crucial, crucial thing. Silence stillness and solitude. We’re all very, very good, reprogramming the human bio computer putting in the input, having mastermind groups coming up with ideas, but he’s hearing that output, but tons of those ideas into reality. Matt, what makes me excited I love working with clients, and helping them turn their dreams into reality and many times helping them become millionaires in the in the process.
David Ralph [58:31]
Yeah, I agree with is totally because I I’ve got my own recording studio, and I used to work in an office full of people. And now I’m pretty much on my own all the time. And it’s never lonely because I’m having these conversations. But when I’m having these conversations, I turn everything off. And I just work. And I always say to people, sometimes there’s like this, this fault, and it’s it’s behind me somewhere and it’s outside, but I can just kind of feel that it’s coming towards me. And yeah, the more that I just kind of, uh, let it come towards me. Sometimes it gets really close. And I think oh, yeah, I mean, it’s gone. But more often than not when it does here. I think that’s it. That’s a doozy. That’s That’s a good one. I
Ron G Holland [59:11]
love it. I love it now Absolutely. Your audience now your people listening to this. Now, I would say my little bit of advice is if they want to join up dots in their own life, just sit in a hard bank chair, turn the light off, turn the phone off, take out. But a earphones just have silence and listen to what your subconscious is telling you. I should think they’ve done enough programmed programming a lot last 10 lifetimes. What they want to hear is that small still voice and if they just do this one thing they’ll begin to do it on a regular basis in the morning in the evening a couple of times during the day, they’ll begin to love it so much it’ll become a habit because they will start tapping into the the output the smallest their voice and start getting those you rakers guidance Hello, these little ideas, big ideas and they’ll start moving forward what I call like little old Johnny, the snake going through the grass f1 so quickly, whereas most people are trying consciously, too hard to make things happen in their life. I rely not 100% but practically 100%. On my subconscious mind, I try not to solve problems consciously. Because I know the power of the subconscious the power of the billion dollar bio computer outweighs the conscious mind massively. And I know your audience could do with that listening to the subconscious mind. Listen to the small still voice if you want to go through the grass like little old Johnny the snake and get to your destination that much quicker. Rely on your subconscious mind, rely on your bio computer giving you the output you need to get where you want to go. And that’s the way to join up dots silence is the way of joining up the dots no question. So absolutely, I’ll do it. I’ll do it.
David Ralph [1:01:02]
No, listen to the show. But nothing else. That’s what we’re saying. This is the only thing you should listen to and then turn off for the whole day. Now I don’t really want to turn off this show because Ron, you have delivered so many nuggets of gold for Uber’s. This is one of them, the master class episodes, I hope that people will come back to a time and
Ron G Holland [1:01:21]
it’s been a pleasure. I tell it’s been a pleasure, not as much
David Ralph [1:01:23]
as a pleasure for me. But this is the end of the show. And this is the part that we call the Sermon on the mic. And this is when we send you back in time to have a one on one with your younger self. And if you could go back in time to speak to the young Ron, what age would you choose? And what advice would you give, but I’m going to play the theme tune and when it fades, you’re up. This is the Sermon on the mic.
Ron G Holland [1:02:09]
Ron Holland, you’re 20 years old, my boy and I want to give you some advice. You’ve got it all to do. You’ve got it all in front of you. And you’re going to come up with all sorts of challenges and hurdles and problems. And the advice is very, very simple. Never, never, never give up. Never give in. Don’t let anybody else steal your dream. Dream bigger, think bigger, visualize harder. visualize what you’re trying to accomplish in concrete form. And don’t let anybody steal that dream. Harness your billion dollar bio computer by thinking in pictures as much as you doing words, and never give up on that. And don’t forget, as you’re programming your bio computer for but that’s the input, you need to get out portal as well. And just take out that little bit of time every day, over the next 10, 2030 4050 years or never stop. Even if you’re not getting output immediately. Never give up on listening to that small still voice. Some people call it the voice of God. Some people call it the small still voice. But putting in the input is crucial. But getting that output is even more crucial. So that’s it. Never give in. Never let anybody steal your dream and harness your neck top computer. And that’s my best advice. And nothing will change. That’s what you got to be doing. And that’s how you will join up dots in your life for the rest of your life.
