Quality 2.0

In today’s social media-run world, most people do everything in their power to appear perfect. Nothing has compromised quality more than this. 

Why? 

Even though perfection ought to be the standard, it’s impossible to achieve it. When you put perfection on a pedestal, you make it impossible to learn from your failures. And nothing enhances your quality as a person more than learning from your mistakes. 

In this episode, you’ll discover why being a quality person today gives you an unfair advantage in anything you do. And how to build your quality little by little each and every day. 

Listen now.

Show Highlights Include:

  • Why paying the price for quality now returns your “investment” in droves down the road ([0:49]
  • The insidious way the false appearance of perfection comprises quality (and why your imperfections make you a high-quality person) ([3:10]
  • Michael Jordan’s secret for failing your way to becoming the all-time greatest at what you do ([3:23]
  • The weird way to multiply your quality as a person by buying more expensive material items ([7:35]
  • The two words which appear in the bible 455 times (and how to become excellent at both of them) ([9:37]

Overcoming

Everyone goes through seasons of gut-wrenching grief and misery. But great people aren’t defined by their successes, but by how they bounce back from failure. 

And I have good news if you need to overcome any sort of trauma or negative emotions:

Overcoming holds no educational level. It holds no status. It takes no financial requirements. Instead, it requires a simple choice: helping others. 

Helping others provides therapeutic benefits for you, and massive benefits for those you’re helping. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how serving others helps you overcome anything you’re dealing with (even the tragic passing of a loved one). 

Listen now. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How one simple thought instantly pulls you out of the dumps whenever life beats you down ([0:27]
  • The selfish reason for helping others and overcoming any mental turmoil you’re facing ([1:03]
  • The 3 words my dad told me as I stared at my first wife’s casket which saved me from breaking down (and how these 3 words will empower you too) ([1:14]
  • How to overcome the worst season of gut-wrenching grief in your life doing nothing more than helping others ([2:56]

Encore: Legacy 2.0

Everyone wants to pass down a legacy to their children and grandchildren when they pass. But most people get this idea wrong. They think their legacy only means monetary and material items they leave behind.

In this episode, you’ll discover how to leave an impact, so nobody forgets you when you pass. 

Listen now and start leaving an unforgettable impact everywhere you go. 

Show highlights include:
