How A Train Ride Led To The Ultimate Success Map

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk to Thor Conklin—  

Thor is all about execution, peak performance and success. He is a business owner, a consultant as well as a content-driven podcaster of the Peak Performers Podcast.  

The first company Thor created was a global risk management consulting firm that served the private equity community. His top 15 clients had combined revenue of $12.7 billion and operated in over 100 countries worldwide. His background in risk management served him well when he lost 1/3 of his team in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. Since then he has started, bought, and sold several multi-million-dollar businesses making him a sought after, cross-industrial resource for entrepreneurs and executives in all stages of business.  

He shares how a decision he made five years prior to the attack was the reason he was not at his office in the World Trade Center on 9/11.  

We also delve into the value of keeping your feet moving forward, the definition of success, and how to get past frustration tolerance to move to the next level.  

Thor also shares how a train ride led to his Ultimate Success Map— he goes through the steps and the terminals, backwards.  

  • First stop F—you’ve got to FIGURE out what you want.  
  • Next the E stop—you’ve got to come up with an EFFICIENT and an EFFECTIVE plan.  
  • Then, D—you have to make a DECISION.  
  • C—COMMIT.  
  • The next stop is B—BELIEF systems.  
  • Then finally, A—You have to take massive ACTION.   

There is another stop which is the T terminal—TIME. Just because you’re starting to take massive action doesn’t mean that the results are going to show up immediately.  

Listen in now for all the details and a train load of value and motivation!

Scott: Check out It helps you check if you have an account that has been compromised in a data breach.

Thor: Think of the biggest problem you have in your business or life right now. 95% of the time, what you thought of is not the root of the problem, it’s only a symptom. You’ve been working to solve the ‘problem’ but in reality, it’s just a symptom. Spend some time this week and take that symptom and start to peel away the onion. Figure out if it’s the problem or if there’s something else causing that problem. Once you solve the root problem, everything else will be solved.

Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
