Personal Mastery Academy Online

My loved ones and I are having a family celebration to mark me moving into my third decade teaching leadership + personal mastery. And I needed to include you.

Sharing personally with you, it’s against all odds that I’m doing what I’m doing today…

…I grew up in a small town, come from basic beginnings, had my talent dismissed by many, was regularly treated disrespectfully as a self-published author and told by an editor I’d hired that The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari was utterly unreadable. And that I had no right to be in the game…

…at the Chicago convention of the American Booksellers Association, I stood at the top of the escalator with the cardboard cover of the book dangling from a string around my neck. Yes, I looked silly. Sure I felt foolish. Definitely I was relentless to spread my message of hope, bravery and humanity…

…though I was put down, knocked down and muddied, I have to tell you that my devotion to serve was bigger than the influence of my critics. And so I persevered. Through the walls. Past the personal trials. Beyond my stumbles…

…into my purpose, potential and possibility.

My real point: if I can do my dreams, you can do your dreams. It’s not that I’m any different from you, I just installed certain mentalities, re-conditioned certain rituals and wired in certain ways of operating that accelerated what I wanted to do.

From my first seminar with only 23 people (21 family members) and publishing my first book in a Kinko’s copy shop to sell at fairs and service clubs to the privilege of having over 3,000,000 followers on Facebook, millions more in my digital circle, helping NBA/NHL/NFL stars and other elite performers play at their greatest level and running The Titan Summit (in Zurich this year, December 4-7) that has had luminaries like Richard Branson, Shaq and many of the world’s top thought leaders on my Faculty, it’s been a fascinating ride.

None of this would have been possible without you. As far as I am concerned, we are positively improving our world TOGETHER.

As a way to show you my PROFOUND appreciation I’m doing something SPECIAL for you

…You probably know that my new live event Personal Mastery Academy completely sold out. Many people from across the planet were very disappointed they missed getting a seat.

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

The Perfect Human

In Mauritius as I write this to you. I come here to think, plan, create, evaluate and refuel.

It’s early a.m. The best time to be alive as far as I’m concerned.

Doc Gyneco plays. Espresso simmers. Waves crash.

I think of you. Your hopes. Your dreams. Your fears. Your life.

I want you to fly. To win. To be the hero of your days. To create beauty, value and utter awesomeness. So–at the end–you’ll be proud of how you showed up, what you made and the many you served.

Yes–you’re that big. That strong. That good.

I also think of a strange idea: What Makes The Perfect Human? And what does it take to create a life that’s so excellent it’s unbelievable?

Honestly, who knows. I’m just one man writing words on a smartphone, hoping in some way to be a little more helpful than yesterday.

But please allow me to try to come up with an answer (I could add many more but these 10 swiftly come to mind):

#1. The Perfect Human Wants to Be Better

To me, a great part of being human is the relentless quest for better. Yes–be content. But study Michelangeo, Federer, Einstein or Jobs. Madonna and Gaga. Slim and Rockefeller. Each one of them had a lust to grow. To excel. To win. To make everything they touched better.

#2. The Perfect Human Cares

Being fully human’s also about a mastery of the details. So yes, I definitely mean being caring in the loving sense. But I also mean just caring about polishing the little details that average people dismiss as insignificant. The downside of this is that you’ll be seen as difficult. Who cares? All world-builders were called that.

#3. The Perfect Human is Brave

You just can’t get to great (and I’m no where near that–just a messenger) without an insane level of raw courage. TPH (The Perfect Human) gets that. And so she speaks her truth even when her voice shakes. He stands for his cherished values even when facing a bullet. They do what’s right even when it’s hard. And nothing–absolutely nothing–stops them from breathing reality into their once imaginary dreams.

#4. The Perfect Human Loves Fit

Fitness is a game-changer. It just is. Once you get to your best physical condition, your focus soars, your mood elevates, your resilience grows and your stamina flows. TPH is like a hunter on the ancient plains–knowing that only the fittest survive. And yes–when you get fit you’ll get giant goals done (so your life gets good). But also get ultra-healthy so you’re of improved service to our world. (We all need you to shine).

#5. The Perfect Human Values Honor

To be fully human and alive is to live in a way that’s aligned with the noble virtues of honesty, patience, understanding, respect, persistence and compassion. Decency’s still cool–at least in the world I want to live in. The best of us–my heroes–live like that. And that’s why I love them.

#6. The Perfect Human Needs Little

Look–I spend a lot of my pro life helping large companies and industry titans make greater fortunes. Money brings freedom (and allows businesses to give people livelihoods). Nice things are part of the sensual pleasures of the world–why not enjoy them? But The Perfect Human doesn’t need them. They don’t make the title, the net worth, the social status, the watch and the house their God. Nope. They just enjoy them–fully knowing the real goal of the ride is self-mastery and contribution.

#7. The Perfect Human Respects Work

Work is a means to grow stronger, bigger and better. I wish more people got that. A job’s just a job if you choose to see it as a job. All work is a means to express your awesome talent, beat your fears and produce gorgeous value for other human beings. TPH respects work. And works hard for the internal and external rewards it brings.

#8. The Perfect Human Craves Achievement

We are most alive when we are playing at our edges. Go to your limits and you’ll find your limits expand. Few things are as exciting, inspiring and fulfilling as the ongoing pursuit of doing things you once thought impossible. Forget the naysayers: extreme achievement is one of the ultimate keys to happiness (for you analyticals: getting important things done releases the neurotransmitter dopamine, the chemical of happiness and motivation).

#9. The Perfect Human Adores Family

At the end, few things matter more than how well you loved those who love you. I adore my work. I live for my mission to encourage, champion and be an instrument of service. But even more, I adore my family.

#10. The Perfect Human Savors Life

Albert Camus said it 10,000X better than I could on my best day: Live to The Point of Tears. TPH feels life, both the blessings and the sufferings. They all contain an original form of utter beauty. So savor the starry night, your child’s laughter, the morning walk, the nightly study, the daily routines. And the bold espresso.

All green lights,

Pomegranates + Patience

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Was at my parents’ home the other night. Beautiful/decent/wise people… who I deeply appreciate. Whenever I go over, the fridge always seems to contain plastic containers full of pomegranate seeds. These little treasures are super healthy, fantastically tasty and overall pleasures that elevate life. I never really thought about where they came from. Just ate them.

This morning I was saying good morning to my Mom on the phone. Got onto the topic of pomegranate seeds because I’d dropped off a brilliant device I’ve discovered for getting the seeds out of the fruit without the achingly painstakingly complex process of doing it by hand (try it once and you’ll get what I mean). Mom: “I’ll try it but your Dad takes out all those seeds for me himself every night. He knows we love them. So quietly, he does this for us.”

As I write, I reflect on my father’s patience. And on the metaphor of pomegranate seeds. Much goes through my mind as I think about this. One thing is the power of patience. In a world gone hyperSpeed, patience is a stunning success behavior. My Dad’s patience in doing something kind+thoughtful+loving for his loved ones. The patience of an entrepreneur toiling in solitude, advancing a dream that nobody gets. The patience of a teacher developing young minds amid fewer resources. The patience of a leader, building an organization that delivers awesome value for the people it’s blessed to serve.

Not sure if I’m making my point clearly. I’ll reflect on it more over the days that come. But patience truly is a virtue. Of the finest of leaders. And the very best of Dad’s.

Keep Leading Without a Title.
