Expectations

What is your ultimate goal in life? And more importantly, what steps are you taking today to achieve that goal? 

Here’s why I ask:

When we set goals, especially massive goals, it can burden us with stress. This type of stress results in procrastination, perfectionism, and giving up. But when you set proper expectations, you control your attitude and your actions. 

In fact, these expectations are the difference between reaching your wildest goals or giving up on them because you didn’t realize how close to them you were. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how expectations free you from stress and help you conquer your dreams with ease.

Listen now. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • Why reaching only 50% of your goals gives you a “hall-of-fame” career in any endeavor you try ([1:15]
  • The simple 2-step formula for unleashing joy throughout your body (even if others upset you) ([3:01])
  • The “Daily Expectations” secret for achieving almost any goal you strive for ([4:37])

Storms

Nobody can survive their entire life without being leveled by a few personal storms. Whether they be financial, spiritual, physical, or with your relationships. 

Most people shy away from storms—my old self included, when my first wife passed. I weaponized blame, and used it to cope, not realizing it snatched the benefits of the storm from right under me. 

But this storm caused me to have an epiphany:

Just as nature needs natural storms to cleanse and blow out dead debris for new life, humans need personal storms to make us stronger, more resilient, and redefine our life’s purpose. 

In this episode, you’ll discover why every storm has a silver lining—no matter how hopeless it seems at the moment. Plus, I’ll give you a few simple techniques to overcome storms easier. 

Listen now.

  • How scripture can help you survive the darkest storms of your life (even if you’re not religious) ([1:18])
  • Why writing down your most humiliating failures helps you conquer your next one with ease ([7:56])
  • The “Sanctuary Moment” secret for transforming gut-wrenching misery into unprecedented trump ([8:33])
  • How to create hope out of thin air—even in the darkest times of your life—by making one simple choice ([12:25])

Failure 2.0

Napoleon Hill, the author of Think and Grow Rich, said one of the most common causes of failure is quitting when overtaken by temporary defeat. 

For example, during the gold rush, a young man and his uncle drilled for gold for months on end. Then, they gave up, and sold their equipment to the “junkman” who found out they were only 3 feet away from striking gold. 

Everybody faces temporary defeats in the game of life. But if you don’t quit  and keep standing, success is closer than you think. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how to bounce back from failure and temporary defeat, so you can achieve exceptional success. 

Listen now.

  • A world-renowned psychologist’s “Capitalization” secret for earning tremendous growth (even if you’re not the most talented or successful) ([1:32]
  • How making failure your friend unleashes achievement, growth, and happiness in your life ([2:43]
  • The “Fail Forward” technique created by one of the world’s best leaders for using your mistakes as a stepping stone for success ([3:32]

Failure

Most people shy away from failure. It’s embarrassing. It hurts. And we’ve been taught to avoid failure since we were children. 

But this is a mistake. Just ask legends like the late, great Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and even Coca-Cola’s former CEO Muhtar Kent. Each of them embraced failure — and achieved more success than most can dream about. 

Here’s the truth: 

The only way to achieve sustainable success is by embracing failure. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how to turn failures into competitive advantages you can use in any area of your life. 

Listen now.
