No Excuses: Taking Ownership of Our Own Life Decisions For Success | 059 Dan LeFave

Dan LeFave has been featured in national publications including Business Magazine and Success Profiles Magazine, and interviewed on radio shows and podcasts from New York to the UK.

He actually started as a spinning coach in a fitness gym and he shares how the concept of “no excuses” started from there.

“I would sit there in the front of the class and say, ‘this class is all about you becoming a better person, better version of yourself’ and I said ‘there are no excuses in this class’ so if you come in and you have some excuses, I would actually invite them to leave.” – Dan LeFave 


No Excuses

Dan shares that the concept of “no excuse” is all about taking ownership. He believes that we’re all owners of our own lives, choices, and decisions. Furthermore, he shares that the second part of preparing for success is already innate for most people. They don’t realize that they’re actually doing it all the time.

“Why don’t we go into the future. Let’s look at your future self and see what that looks like and then let’s connect the dots, go looking backward and prepare. Who do I need to become? What do we need to do? Who do I need to study? What kind of practices and rituals and patterns and habits do I need to have to get to that place?” – Dan LeFave

The Expectation Bridge

Dan shares his system and model which he teaches to clients called the “Expectation Bridge.” With this activity, Dan creates a mental exercise where you have to build it first in your mind, then your body and the environment both catches up. He believes that’s how it always works.

“You’re looking from your reality, you cross the bridge and say ‘Okay this is where I am. These are the things I know, these are the capabilities I have. Then go over to the other side and say okay ‘What does it look like over there? What does it feel like when I’ve achieved these when I have this business and the lifestyle the way I wanted?’” – Dan LeFave

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
