GUSTO

If you’ve never heard of the word ‘gusto,’ it means doing something with zest or a spark. That’s the way most of us want to live our lives. 

But most people don’t live with gusto. They’re stuck in their comfort zones, which prevent them from taking on the challenges they need to grow.

Having gusto is about pushing out of comfort zones to live life to the max. If you can’t step out of your comfort zone, then you can’t grow into something greater.

Silence

We all like music, TV and conversations, but you might be surprised by the damage noise can do (even when you’re having fun).

Clogging your brain with loud sounds, alerts, and pings leads to a poor sleep schedule and sabotages your ability to focus. And you can’t lead if you can’t think.

While quiet time can feel like you’re missing out on something, it gives your brain time to reflect and rest (which is impossible to get in a busy, chaotic world). 

In this episode, you’ll discover how to stop the buzz and use silence as a tool for a more peaceful and powerful life. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How to stop treating silence like a ‘timeout’ and embrace it to boost your intuition and awareness. ([0:52])
  • Why spending time in silence turns you into a true leader (and the three leadership skills silence teaches you). ([5:06])
  • How to stop ‘noise pollution’ from stressing out your body, raising your blood pressure, and damaging your hearing. ([6:33])
  • How to create the most concentrated and productive learning space with an ‘Albert Einstein’ level of noise. ([11:52])

Momentum

Momentum can move you forward almost effortlessly – or keep you stuck wherever you are.

In this episode, you’ll discover how to build and keep momentum so that you can build a great life and share it with others. 

Ready to put your success on autopilot? Listen now!

  • How success turns people into arrogant bums – and how to accomplish your wildest dreams without losing your humility. ([6:45])
  • Why friction keeps you from gaining momentum and sabotages your relationships and your career. ([7:23])
  • The Harvard study that shows how vacation time, bonuses and raises can slow down your career progress (and why you need forward progress in your work to “unlock” momentum). ([10:05])

Resourcefulness

It may not come as a surprise that being resourceful is your “secret weapon” to powering through goals and quickly adapting to new situations.
