Key Takeaways:

  • Before you can fix your business, you must decide first where you want to go.
  • You have to figure out what’s getting in the way of your success, and what are the lynchpins to solving your problems.
    • It’s generally stopping or removing something rather than adding something.
  • Often, what we want most in life is what’s most painful for us to get.
  • Gratitude is one of the biggest and best ways to improve your fulfillment.
  • It’s about getting back to what’s really important to you.
  • Meditation and gratitude should be the first things you do in the morning.
  • Try writing everything down that you’re stressed about. You’ll already feel less stressed. Put on your calendar a reminder to spend 20 minutes to work on taking an action to move one of those things forward.
  • When doing something you hate, fake liking it and it’ll get easier. You can physiologically fool your body.
  • People who want to stay pissed, will stay pissed. Just stay away from them.
  • Every top performer has a pre-event ritual. They set their body, their intention, and their mind before they walk in.
  • Take a deep breath and put a smile on your face. Set yourself before starting.
  • 80-90% of communication is non-verbal.
  • Focus on your mental fitness.
  • Doing something physical helps break bad mental patterns. Get your bad energy out physically.
  • Try to make your life as streamlined as possible. Clutter in your life tends to slow you down.
  • Schedule time to allow yourself creative thinking time.
  • High performers have a default of “no.” Know what your overall mission is and say “no” to anything that doesn’t serve that purpose.
  • Figure out what your lane is going to be. Pick that lane and go deep.
