Welcome! I’m John Ryan.
My purpose for this site and everything I do is to empower you with the tools and techniques that you can use to create a breakthrough in your business and your life!
My area of expertise is in helping people overcome limiting beliefs and self-sabotage and in learning how to create personal alignment in order achieve professionally and personally. For two decades now, I’ve been studying, researching, and working with top performers, constantly looking for the difference that makes the difference. And what I’ve found is that success is not an accident. There are specific ways that top performers think, communicate, and behave that enables them to become their best.
And here’s the good news!
It is completely teachable. Once you learn the components, it is just a matter of applying the principles to your own life and business.
You’ve probably heard the idea or have the belief that, “If someone else can do it, so can I if I can just find out how they did it.” It’s an attractive and empowering idea and to some extent it’s true, but if you’ve ever put this into practice, you know that something is often missing. Why is that?
People who are great at something often don’t know why they’re great at it.
Sometimes sales success is a byproduct of being a “natural.” These are people who are just “natural salespeople.” They’ve always been good at selling and they don’t necessarily know what it is that makes them good.
And to help someone go from good to great you need two things:
- Someone who has been in the trenches, who’s been there done that.
- An understanding that duplicating other people’s actions isn’t a surefire path to success. It is not just about their actions; it is about their entire process both in terms of mindset and mechanics!
That’s what I teach and share through seminars, coaching, and programs and I call it the Kinetic Success Model. It’s the difference that makes the difference in achieving results.
The Kinetic Success Model
The Kinetic Success Model is a philosophy. It is the study of what the top performers do that enables them to achieve their desired results. The Kinetic Success Model has three parts: Psychonetics (what you think), Humanetics (how you communicate) and Actionetics (what you do). Combined, these three pieces are the fundamentals of success both personally and professionally.

Before I started training and coaching, I began my career in sales. One of the first sales companies I worked with was a major car rental company. I was quickly promoted several times and was recruited into the fleet sales division. In my first 4 months of fleet sales, I closed $4 Million of business and was nationally ranked at the top.
Soon after the rankings were published, I was called into my boss’s office; I was excited and thinking that I was going to be congratulated on my success.
My boss said, “I’m concerned about your performance.” I responded, “What do you mean, I’m one of the top in the country.”
He agreed but then asked, “How many appointments do you have scheduled for next month? How many presentations do you have scheduled?” Unfortunately, the answer for both those questions was none.
And he said, “For that reason, we’re going to have to let you go.”
I was shocked and devastated. I went from being ON FIRE to FIRED in an instant.
For a long time, I resented that situation and my boss and I blamed it on personality differences. After the emotions subsided, I realized he was right.
As I think about it now, the reason I had that early success was because I got lucky. I happened to call the right people at the right time and made some great sales. But luck is not a sustainable strategy. Luck is not a business plan and it certainly isn’t something you can bank on.
So I set out on a journey of discovery. I knew that lightning wasn’t going to strike twice and I needed to quickly figure out what was the difference between success and failure, the difference between thriving and just surviving, because I realized that I didn’t have a clue.
I began to study, not just sales, but psychology…achievement…fulfillment. Because in the end, I realized and you may already know this, it’s not just what you know, it’s what you do with what you know that matters. What I found, after two masters degrees and a doctorate degree was that I started seeing patterns. Patterns of behavior both internally and externally that successful people do. I began pulling all those ideas and strategies together into what is now called the Kinetic Success Model.
The great part of it is…you already use this model. When things are going well, you use these strategies. The challenge is that we don’t focus enough on those behaviors that bring us happiness, success, and fulfillment. Instead, we get pulled in 10 different directions leading away from what we actually want: happiness, success, and fulfillment.
My job and my mission is to empower people to breakthrough those old habits and beliefs, to achieve their personal and professional goals, and to enjoy the process!
