We had the good fortune of connecting with Reggie Batts and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Reggie, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Success habits are essential to succeed at anything. Discipline is crucial, not by just doing the right things, but making sure you’re doing the right things in the right order. Having a growth mindset (as opposed to a fixed mindset) is key to accomplishing anything. What has helped me is a combination of things. You must align yourself with wildly successful people who are doing the things you aspire to do. You have to engage in taking as much action as possible and holding yourself to the highest standards. You must look for solutions not excuses, and doing whatever it takes to achieve your goals.

Every successful person I know looks for opportunities during times when most others are running away out of fear. We take risks, because we know the higher the risk, the higher the reward. We wake up early, stay up late, and focus on our highest income generating activities. It’s also ok not having all the answers, but it’s still our responsibility to get things done. So, investing in coaches and mentors who are skilled at the things we’re not so great in is a huge benefit to success.

I also encourage people to be proactive and not reactive. Being proactive is knowing your entire plan for the next day. Being reactive is waking up and figuring out what your day will be like. That delays your momentum. When I wake up I have my entire daily plan scheduled (communications, tasks, meetings, etc.). I also leverage my smaller tasks to other people, so that I can focus on the highest revenue generating tasks which grow the business. My time is more valuable than money, because I can easily get my money back. However, I can never get my time back. So, when I invest my time I expect a return on my investment of that time.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m a Peak Performance Coach for entrepreneurs. I get people to close the gap between where they are and where they want to be. Being an entrepreneur myself, I understand the challenges it takes to run a successful business. Business is easy to fix, it’s people who are the problem. So, I start with working with what’s going on with the person before focusing on the business.

What makes me unique, I think, is my ability to gain trust with anyone in just a few minutes of meeting them. People tell me things they’ve never told their family. One of the reasons is that I’ve never betrayed that trust and it’s part of my brand. I’m also known as the mindset architect of business because of my style of coaching others. I have a really great mindset, it’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good. I use those skills to hone in on the potential that people have no idea they have.

I also wrote the book, Mindset For Success, because I wanted to articulate that anyone can be successful if you first adopt the mindset of a successful person and do the various daily disciplines needed to be successful. If you hang around 9 millionaires, you’re bound to become the 10th. But, the same rule applies if you’re hanging around nine people who aren’t doing much with their lives. So, it’s not about being mediocre, it’s about being outstanding!

I speak all over the world on mindset, leadership, branding, sales, etc. and really getting into the heads of the audience to really believe in themselves and doing whatever it takes to succeed. I have the innate ability to really move an audience and to get them emotionally charged to take action. I also speak at business functions giving keynotes. So, all that I do is all linked to coaching others to be their very best, whether through speaking on stage, my book, my podcast, or working one on one with someone.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I have so many places I enjoying visiting, and considering I’ve been to over 45 different countries I’m not sure where to start. But, for fun, lets use Southern California since it’s where I reside. If I were hosting friends here (which I enjoy doing all the time) we would have an early morning run near the beach followed by a bite to eat at a Santa Monica breakfast cafe for inspiring conversation.

I like fine dining and dinner cruises. So we’d definitely do a few of those. I also enjoy taking my guests to resorts and just having a “daycation” by the pool enjoying great conversation.

I’m very spontaneous, and may even take my guests on a quick plane ride to Las Vegas for the day for dinner and a show, and return in the evening. I just like to have fun and I enjoy hosting friends and family. It can be fancy or it can be low key. As long as we’re having fun!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Many people have helped me get to where I am today. I’ve had the opportunity of being coached and mentored by some of the most successful people in the world. Here are just a few who made the biggest impact:

Tony Robbins (World’s #1 Peak Performance Coach) was my first mentor who had a big impact on everything I do today. I met him when I was 21 years old and worked with him for over 10 years. He opened doors for so many of the opportunities I’m in today. He was a huge part of my growth.

JT Foxx (World’s #1 Wealth & Business Coach) has been instrumental in my growth in business. I wouldn’t be a speaker without the platform he’s given me to do so in the earlier days. I’ve spoken in over 45 countries thanks to him. That growth continues today as we’ve worked with one another over a decade. He was and still is one of the biggest impacts of my growth.

John Assaraf (from the self-help movie, The Secret and the World’s #1 Mindset Coach) was my mindset mentor. Working alongside this incredible person taught me that anything is possible if you wire your brain properly. He helped me to do that which gave me the mindset to do anything!

These 3 all bring something unique to the table and have all really helped me immensely.
