275: The Mindset of the weak and average part 1: The “goal” setter

If you want to make progress and create success, sometimes it’s smartest to study what NOT to do, so you can be aware of what’s been causing you your frustrations. In this series, I am going to be walking you through the mindset of the weak and the average, and what keeps them there. If you hope to separate yourself from the masses, you have to think different. So the challenge for you is this: do you have the courage to find out what these mindsets and attitudes are, and then have the courage to admit you have been weak and need to change? Check out episode 1, where I break down the first deadly mindset….the “goal setting” mindset. There’s a lot of these types running around Instagram. Take a listen.

273: How to find “true happiness”

Have you ever heard someone say “I just want to be happy”? Or maybe you have told yourself that you don’t want something, because that is not going to make you “happy”? The word itself is very misunderstood, and I think I know why. Listen to this conversation I had with a coaching group, explaining what my philosophy on happiness is.

272: How to transform yourself into a KILLA

There are a lot of softies out there….. people afraid to go after a goal, preoccupied with the opinions of others, and too worried about how they appear to take a stand, and be a leader. For some of them there is no hope… but for a lot of them, they need a formula for how to transform themselves into a real killa… and by that I mean someone who knows how to be themselves, establish goals and turn them into reality, and repeat. The world needs more of these. Take a listen to hear my take.

We are told to dream big and ignore limitations, but at the same time we are told to stay connected to reality and know what’s true. How do you do both at the same time? What does this look like practically?
