4 “Quiet” Lessons I’ve Learned On This Tour

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

By Robin Sharma
#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title

Lessons from the road

Hope you’re in superb spirits, nailing your 2014 vision and inspiring everyone around you to reach for world-class.

I’m still out on this tour–spreading the Lead Without a Title message that’s grown into a movement. And doing my utmost to be of service.

I’ve learned a lot on this tour. The purity of the road births deep thoughtfulness and on each of the stops so far (Zurich, Zagreb, Nairobi, Seychelles and Bahrain), I’ve discovered new insights.

Please allow me to share 4 of the finest of them with you since I feel you’re with me on this ride. Most of them are “quiet”–meaning–not so well known…

  1. The nature of the goals you set is massively important. Goals based on looking better than others deliver less motivation and persistence than goals based on trying to improve your performance. So set “mastery goals” versus “ego goals”.

  2. Optimism isn’t some soft concept for weak people. Nope. It’s an absolutely essential element for anyone in hot pursuit of elite performance and professional mastery. Here’s my point: we often tell ourselves we’ll cultivate optimism once we become successful. But recent reasearch confirms that developing optimism leads to success….

    …optimists have been shown to have greater mental focus, more energy, better creativity and more stamina when things get hard.

  3. The best way to get more done is to do a lot less. I know I’ve been on this learned minimalism kick for the past few years, but I’m getting it at a whole new level.

    On this trip, I noticed a woman carrying a handbag made by a famed watchmaker. This firm makes genius-level watches. But highly ugly handbags. They seem to have forgotten what they do best. And are now in the process of destroying their brand and alienating their fans.

    So to get more done, say no to most of the fantastic opportunities that are presented to you but are not a part of your sweetspot. Build your business life and your personal world around just a few things. And have the discipline to say a diplomatic no to everything else. Mastery comes via a monomaniacal focus on simplicity versus an addiction to complexity.

  4. Your belief about your potential determines whether you’ll express your potential…

    …Psychologists are writing about “implicit theories” these days. Basically, these are the unconscious beliefs we have about our talents, abilities and place in the world.

    They come from every possible influence: our parents, our teachers, our friends, television, every book we’ve read and every place we’ve been. They all come together–subconsciously–to form our personal story. Cool, yes?

    And here’s the powerful idea: we always behave in a way consistent with our self-identity. What we think about our potential determines whether we take steps to fully express it or whether we leave it lying on the table of unfulfilled promise.

So there you go. Four ideas to practice and live.

100 thanks to everyone who showed up at the events, stopped me in airports and approached me on the streets. I am humbled to be helpful and am so grateful my work is valuable to you.

As for everyone asking me whether I’ve decided to do The 48 Hour Transformation–my 2 day personal mastery event–again this year, the answer is yes. It’ll be held on June 7 + 8 in Toronto, Canada. Can’t wait to see the Alumni from last year and all the new faces from across the world.

Be great,

The Antidote To Fear

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

By Robin Sharma
#1 Bestselling author of “The Leader Who Had No Title”

A blatant yet often forgotten truth I’d love you to consider (and maybe journal about) today…

…Success doesn’t have much to do with luck, coincidence or even natural talent.

Instead, it has everything to do with a formula (and as you noticed, I’ve been sharing key pieces from my personal formula with you).

It’s like if you want to make an awesome meal, you can take weeks to experiment to try and get it right. Or you can get the recipe from the chef in 60 seconds.

People who achieve amazing results are no smarter than you. They’ve just learned the formula. They’ve just cracked the code.

No matter where you’re at in your life, no matter what’s happened in the past and no matter where you are today, if you run the right formula, you’ll start seeing fantastic results. GUARANTEED!

One of the master keys to the formula is to replace fear with faith and worry with action.

The #1 obstacle people have told me that is blocking them from extreme success is a lack of confidence.

The best kept secret of super achievers is that they too are scared. But they know the antidote to fear is action.

In this inspiring video I share how to develop the confidence to become fearless.

Did you know that most people spend 2 hours or more each day being distracted from doing important things that will deliver their dreams by watching dancing cats on YouTube?

The ONE Thing Titans Do

The ONE Thing Titans Do

By Robin Sharma
Author of the #1 International Bestseller “The Leader Who Had No Title”

Really important message today. It’s a little long because I’ve put A LOT of effort, research and thought into what’s below…

…But the ideas, hard-core “elite performance intel” (and the announcement at the end) are DEFINITELY worth 3 minutes of your precious time…

I’m in Durban, South Africa as I write this. At a special little hotel called The Oyster Box. It’s a rest day on this tour. My windows are open, the sea roars and the breeze is salty.

I’m genuinely hoping you are feeling on game, fuelled by your mission and executing brilliantly on your vision for 2013. Not so much time left to make this year your best yet….

Which brings me to the idea of being “A Titan”.

…In Greek mythology, “Titan” referred to a member of an ancient race of powerful Gods with incredible strength, power and influence.

…In today’s world, a Titan is a man or a woman who is a member of the financial, business and social elite.

Ultra-billionaires Carlos Slim, Bill Gates, Amancio Ortega, Warren Buffett, Li Ka-Shing, Liliane Bettencourt, Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault are just a few who come to mind.

But so do athletes like Roger Federer, LeBron James, Lionel Messi, Floyd Mayweather and Maria Sharapova.

Artists like Jay-Z, Rihanna, Basquiat and Warhol are Titans.

22 year old chess wunderkind Magnus Carlsen qualifies…as do former Navy Seal Eric Greitens, author J.K. Rowling and inventor of the Internet Tim Berners-Lee.

And of course world-builders like Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. are Titans.

So what’s the ONE thing each of these people have in common?

— yes, each of them has what University of Pennsylvania psychology professor Angela Duckworth calls “grit”. [Her research has proved that people with "grit"---the trait of exceptional persistence and devotion in the face of obstacles---consistently outperform those with higher IQs].

— yes, each of them understands that “focus plus time equals genius” so that while average people are trying to do 100 things, these performers are monomaniacally focused on doing just a few things really, really well.

— yes, these SuperAchievers all have an uncommon respect for time (time truly is priceless and the hours average people waste on gossip, tv and video games, Titans use to create remarkable results).

— yes, these people all engaged in deep daily practice which led to their exceptionalism (please read the article “The Role of Deliberate Practice in the Acquisition of Expert Performance” by Anders Ericsson–the father of “The 10,000 Hour Rule” and you’ll have all the science you need to understand that greatness in ANY field is far less about natural talent and far more about deliberate practice).

— yes, they take “hedged risks” (versus betting the farm) that ordinary people don’t take because it makes them feel too uncomfortable and scared.

— yes, most Titans invest far less on entertainment and so much more in their education (especially on their personal development). The world TRULY belongs to the learners because the more you learn the more you will achieve.

— and absolutely yes these people had the guts to believe in their own vision of their future even when they were the only people on the planet who believed in that vision.

But out of all that I’ve observed coaching so many of the financial elite and ultra-achievers for 17+ years, sharing long meals with them and traveling to exotic locales with them, the ONE thing they all have in common is this:

All Titans live and breathe “The Law of Association” (which says that “your results always rise to the level of your influences.”).

This is REALLY REALLY important my friend…

To create world-class results you absolutely MUST spend time with people whose lives you want to be living.

BECAUSE…

— Science has proven that mindsets and emotions are contagious. Associate with elite performers, those leading world-class lives, who are in the top .001% financially, super-healthy and seriously great human beings and their ways of thinking, doing and being unconsciously start to influence you.

And…The Law of Association also ensures that:

#1. Your income generally is the median income of the 10 people you spend most of your time with.

#2. Your levels of motivation will look A LOT like the motivation of the people in your social circle.

#3. Your ability to execute on your goals and deliver results on your dreams will be a lot like the “execution intelligence” of your friends and associates.

#4. Your lifestyle will reflect the lifestyles of the people who populate your life.

#5. And your overall beliefs and happiness-levels are definitely a mirror of the beliefs of those you associate with most of the time.

So my strong encouragement is to take a good hard look at who you associate with (as well as your environmental influences).

Few things are as important as getting this piece of the “uber-success code” right.

So starting today, my strong and respectful encouragement is that you have the guts to clean out associations that are toxic, limiting and demotivating…

Your productivity, wealth, fitness, mindset and family life will transform when you get this one thing flawlessly done. And the highest level of success and performance is my greatest wish for you.

I also want to share a truly special opportunity with you (this is not for everyone, but I’m responding to all the requests)…

Advance Notice: Announcing THE TITAN PROGRAM:

For many years, clients have been asking me to offer an elite year-long coaching program for people who are already successful but want to leap into “rare-air results” and breakthrough to the HIGHEST level of performance, mindset, wealth, health, happiness and global influence…

I’ve resisted it for years but am finally excited to do it…

…I’m letting you know this before I make this announcement public because you’re on my list.

…THE TITAN PROGRAM is a one year elite coaching program where I share the exact same systems, strategies and techniques I share with the private coaching clients who invest $150,000+ per year to engage me as their advisor.

The program is limited to 100 people worldwide as I want this to be ultra-exclusive. And it’s only for people who are ready to lead EPIC lives.

— THE TITAN PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • Admission into The Titan Summit (a 4 day live event with me and and thought leaders such as Darren Hardy and the world’s top marketing guru who will both join us via video). To be clear, this will be 4 phenomenal days in a room with just me and 99 other people where I walk you through my most advanced strategies on performing at truly world-class levels, building great wealth, getting super fit, growing an amazing company, getting happiness and serious balance back into your life and becoming a Titan on the planet who makes things better for the rest of the world.

  • The Titan Summit will be held on December 10/11/12/13 in Toronto Canada. I’ll teach you and the rest of the Titans who make it into this program the little known information that only my private clients get. Just a few of the ideas you’ll learn in that room will make you 10X what you’ll invest to get into this program if you execute on them.

  • And… every night me, you and the other SuperAchievers who will be at this event will have fantastic dinners, excellent wine and unforgettable conversations.

Part of what makes The Titan Program so special is that I’ve designed it to be one of the best networking groups in the world. [Imagine being in a coaching program with billionaires, amazing entrepreneurs, giant dreamers and some of the most decent, inspirational and fun people alive---that's what The Titan Program is all about...].

The Titan Program also includes…

…If you get into The Titan Program, you’ll also receive monthly coaching with me via live webinar for 10 months.

— You’ll learn the information that few Titans will ever share…information that will truly create incredible results in your personal, financial, business and internal life. On these webinars, you can directly ask me questions and get the highest level of “extreme performance coaching”.

AND every week you’ll also receive coaching in the form of a video or an article to keep you motivated, energized and on your best game.

AND every day you’ll receive a personal message from me as your mentor…to ensure you feel supported, encouraged and in the process of building a truly legendary life.

So…

…Are you ready to associate with billionaires, exceptional performers, hugely productive superstars and some of the most motivated people on Earth? (Yes, these are the people that will be in The Titan Program).

…Are you set to join what I’m aiming to be one of the world’s best mastermind groups?

…Are you amped to get my most advanced elite performance coaching in this one year program for spectacular results?

— With just a few of the ideas you’ll learn, you’ll make back your investment multiple times (so this elite coaching program becomes FREE).

If you think this opportunity is for you, I’d love to work with you.

HERE’S WHAT TO DO NOW:

#1. Please note The Titan Program is limited to only 100 people worldwide. 40 spots have already been sold (they filled in minutes at my annual self-mastery event T48T in June and at the session in Durban). So I only have 60 spots available and I’m letting you know first before I announce this publicly to my online base of 1,000,000+ people.

#2. Sorry but right now I’m only opening up a block of only 25 seats so it’s first come, first served.

#3. The cost of a membership in The Titan Program is $25,000 CDN (it’s worth so much more than that). But the first 25 people who snap up a spot pay the early bird price of only $9997.

#4. The level of interest in this program is extremely high and I’m expecting a sold-out program.

To get one of the 25 seats I’ve just opened up at the special $9997 price just send an email right now to Angela Pazienza, my Executive Programs Leader:
