KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM EPISODE 62:

Habits are what lead to success. Successful people have a set of habits that contribute to their success. A habit is a tool that can take you to the next level. It is something realistic that you can stick to and make a part of your life. Ultimately habits are about the individual. Everyone

The practice of talking to yourself daily. Not necessarily affirmations, but rather self assessment and contemplation. This fosters a daily awareness for what you are engaging in and allows you to notice your weaknesses more so you can improve them. Truly have a conversation with yourself and be honest with yourself about what your strengths and weaknesses are. This enables you to effectively influence outcomes in your life. Every day you know you will encounter difficult people. By giving yourself this primer, instead of getting pissed you can be effective.

Remind yourself of how you are going to get better and achieve what you want. Make your goals and objectives stare back at you by posting them around your house. There is a difference between putting them in your phone versus putting them on the wall. When they are on the wall the goals are literally right in your face when you get home.

Have a daily strategy. Looking out 6-12 months into the future and envision what you want your life to look like. This focuses your day. Each day you can implement daily strategies to achieve these goals. If you do not focus each day around the bigger picture of 6-12 months then you will likely meander aimlessly through your day. Then 6-12 months later your life is not what you wanted it to be. Figure out what your true daily strategies are because they vary from person to person. Practicing this consistently is a huge win. Regardless of everyone else, you control how your day is going to go. The morning primes you for the entire day. Take control of your morning and know that you have complete control of your emotional state throughout the day. no one can make you feel good or bad. People can do good or bad things but ultimately you decide how they affect you.

Remind yourself of how you are going to get better and achieve what you want. Make your goals and objectives stare back at you by posting them around your house. There is a difference between putting them in your phone versus putting them on the wall. When they are on the wall the goals are literally right in your face when you get home.

People struggle a lot with commitment and consistency. Make yourself the person people can depend on. When you say you are going to get something done, GET IT DONE. We live in a world of instant gratification but the world of business and success does not work that way. You will not “hit the lottery”. Every successful person has spent years being patient and consistent with their craft.

Fight your weaknesses daily. Once you understand your weaknesses, make it a priority to break them down and improve upon them. If you do not make this a priority these weaknesses will lead to your demise, or at the very least stunt your growth.

Educate yourself daily. Take the time to study what you need to know in order to level up. If you are not constantly learning you are staying the same and in this world, stagnation is regression. If there is a weakness that is leaving you vulnerable, educate yourself further. Understanding your craft at deeper level will allow you to communicate more effectively with others in the field and better answer questions from those who are not as well versed as you.

Take time to remind yourself where you came from. Reflect and think about how you made it to where you are now. Remember the way you felt when you were going through tumultuous times and how things are different now. The adversity that you face in your life is what makes you who you are. It molds you into a stronger person if you allow it. Once you get through some seriously difficult times, you can draw upon that experience and do what you are really meant to do.

Practice your craft. Become a better leader and educator so that you can leave your mark on the world. You can be remembered through your teachings and recordings. These can live on long after you are gone.

John often struggles with being a good friend. In the sense of remembering special occasions or returning phone calls to people that are close to him. Cory also struggles with remembering these special occasions. It takes significant effort to handle these occasions appropriately. It is important to place value on the personal relationships in your life to demonstrate what those people mean to you. When you are so dialed in to what you are trying to accomplish it is easy to lose sight of these things, so constantly remind yourself to show those around you that you love and care about them.

Being so focused on business can cause you to be overly direct. Cory and John tend to, even in personal discussion, be very direct. This is perfect for business because you can give clear and concise direction but can cause problems in your personal life. Especially if your significant other is not as business oriented as you.

Cory struggles with procrastinating around the house. Despite being ultra disciplined in every other area of his life, something has to fall by the wayside and for Cory that is housework.
