Steve Thompson Did It, Can You do it with Ambit Energy?


Ambit Energy's Steve ThompsonHave you seen the interview? Steve Thompson, Ambit Energy’s number two income earner, is now making over $350,000 a month. He earned over $8 million in his Ambit business over the last 5 1/2 years. Can you even imagine that? Really now, for you and I, what is important? What does it mean for you? How can it help you?

There are really only a couple of questions here. How is it done? How did he do it? Also, can you do it? When I refer to ‘can you do it’, I really have two thoughts come to mind. Is it still possible to take advantage of this opportunity? Secondly, can you do the kind of things Steve did?
First, I’ll address the issue is it still possible? Ambit Energy is currently in six states: Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Maryland and New Jersey. Its seventh state, Connecticut, is opening today. It would be fair to say that only a sliver of the country was opened and met Ambit Energy by now. Even in the early states, there is plenty of opportunity. Texas and New York are growing rapidly. Texas has been open for 5 1/2 years and is growing faster than ever. The four other states are still in their infancy. With all this income and only a fraction of the country started yet, it’s clear that the energy market and the energy MLM is a great marriage.

So, we know that there is income to be made, and that Ambit Energy is in its early building stage. The next question is can and how do we do it?
In the interview article, Steve Thompson gave the blueprint of information one needs for ‘how to do it.’ The hard part is can you do it. Well, the most difficult part are you able and willing to be coached. In the interview, Steve points out how he continually tries to learn from others. So, here we have someone that we would consider eminently successful, making more money than most people would ever imagine, and yet he continues to train and educate himself. Steve mentions that he doesn’t even know his own mentors personally and names them for us, Jim Rohn, Robert Kiyosaki, etc.

The hardest part for most people, is actually listening and not changing something that already works. You may have to adapt the words of Rohn or Kiyosaki to your business. So, how can you learn? You can make the most of your time by listening while commuting in your car or waiting for a child to complete a practice, or doctors offices or wherever you have to wait and listen to these mentors share their knowledge. Then, continue the education process and follow up by attending the available training provided by your company or its leaders. It should go without saying, never miss a training opportunity when Steve or another topic ambit leader is in your neighborhood.


Ambit Energy’s Chris Chambless – Wisdom on Resolutions and Freedom


Ambit energy’s Chris Chambless describes a little bit about life and how to reach your dream and how not to reach your dream. What is commitment? (Also see Commitment and Success)He gives us some very valuable wisdom. In this video he talks about New Year’s resolutions. He points out that these resolutions are about the life we want. Unfortunately, every year most people write the same resolutions over and over again.

Every year Chris looks at the most popular resolutions and the top 10 are always about the same. The top 10 resolutions are:

  1. lose weight
  2. save money
  3. get organized
  4. have more time with your family
  5. reduce debt
  6. exercise regularly
  7. take a vacation
  8. quit smoking
  9. more rest
  10. help others

When looking at these resolutions, they are not just about the life we want. Think about them. Each and every one of them shows something that we want to change in our life. So, they are a reflection of something that exists now that we want to change. For example, we want to reduce our weight or put money aside and get out of debt, or we realize we have not had the time to spend with our family. That means any resolution we have represents a mirror reflection of the life we have that we would like to change. But, how can we make these changes. He points out that it is almost impossible to realize these dreams when we are already working 50+ hours a week.  We all want a better life. He says, the problem is not in the desire, “the problem is in the execution,” as people rarely succeed in keeping their resolutions. Actually, he noted that only about 8 percent of people actually keep their resolutions. (Look at elite success here.)

According to Chris, it is essential to understand, “you will never have the life you want, unless you are willing to leave the life you have.” One of the most incredible applications of this was the founding fathers of this country. They knew they had to give up much of what they had and risk more in order to realize their goals. Fortunately for most of us, we might realize our goals with far less risk and giving up far less.

A list of resolutions cannot do us any good. That is only a description of where we want to go. Your goal can only be realized if you have the time to incorporate those goals in your life. Time is freedom. The only way is to be able to buy your time back through financial freedom.

Ambit Energy’s Chris Chambless emphasized he’s not talking about getting millions of dollars. By financial freedom he is emphasizing that people need enough money coming into their household to have the security to pay their bills. That is financial freedom! So, not only is Ambit Energy an energy mlm, it is the one to be working and let it work for you.

Commitment is a Muscle, Necessary Path to Success, – Ambit Energy or Any Activity


Whatever your goals and whatever your dreams in life, if you truly are striving for something, attaining it is a most satisfying outcome. Almost anything you do strive to reach will not only take hard work, but will require perseverance and a rekindling of spirit. I was reminded of this yesterday when someone I am helping run his Ambit Energy business called me and asked to chat. That is, you will have periods of ups and downs. You must find ways to work through the periods of disappointment and get to the next success, no matter how small, as quickly as possible start moving up the next hill.

Commitment is a driving force that takes you to your destination. This is the key to achieve success and it’s like a muscle in the body that supports the bones in order to function properly. Commitment brings this whole thing back as if in a circle. That’s it, a self generating, ever growing process to build success, income, health, or whatever you desire.


Commitment is a muscle that must be exercised regularly with consistency and persistence.

Consistent exercise of a muscle increases endurance, confidence and therefore energy. And, every commitment to exercise must start off slowly and build. Commitment to something works in the same manner. It also increases energy as you see more success and accompanying reward. The energy becomes the fuel that drives you to achieve success.

Energy comes in two parts – real and perceived. That is, when you exercise you build muscle that gives you more energy. However, if you find something difficult, the mind plays a wonderful trick on us and gives us the same feeling as when we are tired. Your conclusion is, “I’m tired” and your natural tendency would be to stop. This is where commitment comes into play.

Commitment is necessary to work yourself through the negative thoughts and tendencies. It helps you take an extra mile to get to get to your goal. After awhile, it becomes easier; that is, exercise the commitment ‘muscle’ and it becomes easier over time. You develop a good habit. The key is that commitment must be exercised or it will atrophy. That friend working in Ambit Energy is going to do just fine.  He has the maturity to know what to do when negativity hits him. And, yes he is coachable! Whatever your reaching to attain: a degree, a new language, a business or to excel in a sport, they all must follow these tenets.

Want Success in Ambit Energy like Eli and Payton Manning, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods


Most people don’t know the difference between doing reasonably well and super stardom. Whether we talk of success like Tiger Woods or how to excel in business, like Ambit Energy, or school.

  1. Tiger Woods at his peek averaged 1.5 strokes less than the average in Pro Golf Tournaments (quote Chris Chambless, Ambit Energy). One and a half strokes is not a major difference. He gets there by consistent practice and commitment to all phases of the game.  That difference is what separates him from the field. He is generally alone working early in the morning or when everyone else is at the club after a round. But, some of the newer players learned what he did. However, his extra work gave him the consistency in success and that income, lifestyle and following.
  2. You just saw the Super Bowl. How did Eli Manning and Tom Brady get there? They study everything they can with every fiber in their body. How did they maintain that high level? Did you see them on the sidelines? Even then, they were not just idling sitting on the sidelines. They talk with the key players on their offense. They discuss what they did that worked and that which didn’t. They planned for their next opportunity on the field.
  3. In exercise, when someone does an exercise it is not the 1st 11 repititions that gets the results, it is pushing beyond limits for the last repetition and holding it a little longer that achieves most of the results.
  4. In education,it is the extra effort that matters. When studying during a course, it is not going through the material and working through the problems and turning in your homework, it is reviewing the material within a short period after initial study while others take a break.
  5. Some of the greatest people in many sports, Larry Bird, Bill Bradley, Charles Barkely, Michael Jordan, Terrell Owens and Kobe Bryant got where they did, not just by talent, but that extra effort beyond others.
  6. When arriving at Grad School at UC Berkeley, what struck my attention was how the great professors and Nobel Prize Winners, worked extra to attain their level of success. They would be there working on Saturday or Sunday morning and always worked longer hours.
  7. At Hofstra University, near the end of my undergraduate studies, a student friend, who was studying with a group nearby called me over. He asked, “Thomas, how do you do so well?.” I answered, “You are all trying to figure out what you need to know. I try to figure out what I don’t know.” Excellence is not by guessing what you need to do in life, it is by working at excelling, i.e. filling the holes in your knowledge, experience or skills.

Success comes with hard work. If you don’t want to work for it, that doesn’t make you a bad person. You just made a personal choice. However,don’t complain about success of others or that your income, wealth or lifestyle isn’t as good. Life’s not fair, but “life is 10% what happens to you and 90% what you do with it.” (Lou Holtz). I’m tired of hearing about redistributing and want to hear more about rewards. What about you?

Interestingly, take a look around you. When you are at college or high school, it is really easy to be in the top tier. Most people are not putting in the extra effort. Look at the events and travel that top people in Ambit Energy do. But, if you want to truly attain the highest levels, you have to push yourself further than those others who are participating in success.  People who are participating may only be looking for what they need to know or need to do, not what they don’t know or haven’t done, yet.
