How to Sustain Your A-Game (Every Day)

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

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

Fine to play at world-class for a week...but what makes legendary is sustaining it for a lifetime

Been reading Tim Grover’s book Relentless. And getting a ton of insights on rare-air performance from it.

[Reading's such a game-changer, yes? Dad always told me: "Robin, if you have to, cut back on other things. But always fill your life with books."]

One of Tim’s insights (he coaches NBA players) is that a lot of star athletes aim to be great. But the Kobe’s and Jordan’s aspire to an even higher standard…

to become the best there ever was.

During my summer break, I thought for hours on end about what the real game’s all about…

…and one of the concepts that’s really shaping up inside my thinking is that it’s fine to play at world-class for a week…but what makes legendary is sustaining it for a lifetime.

This Tuesday, I’ll be sending you a VERY valuable surprise that will take you through some of my most advanced thinking on this point and walk you through the mental model I’ve created around it called The Icon’s Decline…so check your inbox for my message.

Until then, please allow me to share some core ideas to help you sustain your A-Game every day:

#1. Start with your mindset. Your performance in the world is simply the result of the things you believe. If you really don’t think you’re the kind of person who produces epic results or becomes uber-fit or creates a financial fortune or elevates entire communities, then you’re just not going to do what it takes to make these visions real…

…change your private story about your potential and your behavior changes by itself. Begin within. Always.

#2. Clear out the constraints. So many of us want to sustain our A-Games over an entire career versus being one hit wonders. But we fill our lives with so many energy drains and constraints that we never create greatness that endures. My encouragement: delete the energy vampires from your life, clean out all complexity, build a team around you that frees you to fly, remove anything toxic and cherish simplicity. Because that’s where genius lives.

#3. Walk with icons. You’re smart and talented. So you get that the caliber of your associations determines the level of your success…

…some intelligent research has been done on the drivers of exceptional performance (read Talent is Overrated, for example). And one of the keys to genius is that every great performer was a member of a “talent hub”…

…in other words, associating with others aiming to become world-class lifts up–and sustains–your A-Game. To make the final months of this year the single best months in the history of your entire life, you absolutely must commit to having conversations–and building alliances–with people who are a few levels above you.

[If you want to join me, Sir Richard Branson and other thought-leaders at an intimate and exclusive gathering of some of the world’s most successful people this December, watch this video.]

#4: Maintain the extreme training. So easy to get to a great place and then slow down on your practice protocols. But the very best of the best practice even harder as they become more successful…

…remember what the Spartan warriors taught us: “sweat more in practice and you’ll bleed less at war.”

#5. Get your routines right. I did a blog post on this recently called Create New (And Awesome) Habits Fast. The main idea was simply this: epic production has less to do with your willpower and more to do with the routines you install. Get those right and you’ll enjoy exponential results automatically.

#6. Never Rest on Your Success. Success is ever so dangerous. Once you rise to success, it’s so easy to stop doing the things that made you successful. The fire in the belly to become legendary can begin to diminish. Arrogance can creep in. Taking customers for granted often happens. And the will to amp up to your next level can be left behind…

…what makes true icons is that they know that the top of one mountain just allows you to see the next peaks to climb.

…for those devoted to sustaining their A-Games over a lifetime, the whole nature of the pursuit is to see how high they can rise, to capitalize on as much of their potential as possible and to contribute as much value to humanity as they can.

VERY IMPORTANT…

…Congratulations to everyone who snapped up one of the limited seats that I just opened up to The Titan Summit 2014 featuring Sir Richard Branson and my all-star faculty of experts who will show you how to build an iconic business and live a life that makes history….

…you’ve now joined my inner circle and are a part of a group of the most successful, inspiring and decent people I know…

…please note that this block of seats has SOLD OUT.

I’ve just opened up a few more seats so go ahead and get yours now while you still can.

…as mentioned, The Titan Summit 2014 features Sir Richard Branson (in person) and a faculty of globally respected thought-leaders on business growth, brain optimization, peak health and longevity, maximum productivity and creating a legacy for humanity…

…this is not one of my live events with 5000+ people. This is an exclusive and intimate gathering of people operating at the highest level…and the value here is simply priceless.

…I wanted to do something ever so special for my Titans and am giving everything I can to make it “a once in a lifetime experience”.

here are the details

…this event is not for everyone. Just for elite performers who want to associate with business icons, thought-leaders and epic producers so they create exponential business and personal results.

this video shares the power of The Titan Summit and the testimonials of alumni who were blown away by the return on their investment.

I’d love to help you and see you in the room with the rest of the Titans. Get one of the limited seats here

not being at this exclusive and small gathering of superstars will actually cost you more. So release any excuses and invest in your biggest future by joining us now

All green lights! Let’s get you to beyond great. You deserve no less.

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

Did you know we collectively spend 100,000,000 minutes a day playing Angry Birds on smartphones?

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?

Did you know that the more you allow yourself to be interrupted, the more you actually develop a brain that can’t focus?

It’s just unbelievable how many of us are spending the best hours of our days chasing trivial pursuits that add zero value to our lives.

It’s the #1 success destroyer these days…all these distractions that have invaded your best hours…

One of the absolute best ways I know of is learning how to wake up early. Get this one habit right and you’ll achieve more in one day than most people get done in one month.

So in response to the thousands of requests, I took the time to shoot a new training video that shares the next piece of my formula for extreme achievement. It will teach you exactly how to get up early.

Ted Turner’s Wealth Psychology

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

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

Ted Turner's Wealth Psychology

Ted Turner’s a pretty amazing man…

—he founded CNN from nothing

—he started the Cartoon Network

—he’s won the America’s Cup

—he created Ted’s Montana Grill

—he launched the Goodwill Games

—he’s given away billions to great causes

So how did he build such a TEL (Truly Epic Life)?…

…In today’s message, I’m not going to get into his winning business choices

…I’m not going to rant about his daily success habits nor the rewards that his associations with the entrepreneurial elite brought to him

…And I’m not going to get into his strong relationship with his powerful father and the influence that connection had on him

This piece (that I’ve worked really hard to get right for you) is about something else…the root cause of all rare-air productive, financial, personal and global success…

…your psychology.

If you’re not thinking like the dominant star of your industry, your performance will never rise to match that expectation.

If you’re not thinking you can get your massive dreams done, your behavior will never be sufficient to get giant goals done.

If you’re not thinking like someone who’s the rockstar of their field, financially free, healthy as an athlete and happier than you could ever imagine, then there’s no way you’ll get there.

Why? Because your outcomes always reflect your self-identity (a.k.a. your psychology).

Researchers like Sonja Lyubomirsky have done some fascinating work on “the power of the self-fulfilling prophecy”. Definitely read her book The How of Happiness this week.

Bottom line: the hard-core psychologists confirm that your psychology and expectations for your performance determine your results.

You absolutely have to learn to think like the very best do to experience the rewards and lifestyle that the VERY best have.

So back to Ted Turner…

…even when he was the “new kid” going up against ABC, NBC and CBS–with nothing but the unreasonable idea for a 24 hour news network– he believed that he’d win because he surrounded himself with other visionaries and “industry disruptors” who modeled massive success. [The Law of Association].

…even when he was kicked out of the company that he founded, he started a new one (Ted’s Montana Grill) because his psychology was such that he had developed the “neural architecture” of resilience and radical confidence. [The Law of BounceBack].

[Btw: none of this is natural talent. It’s all the result of learning how to think like this and then practicing it until it becomes a habit].

…even when his beloved father died, he kept his fierce focus on his greatest dream alive by outworking, out-innovating and outproducing everyone around him because he got his psychology right. [The Law of Grit].

So what were the core beliefs that he practiced relentlessly until they hardwired in as his psychology of fantastic productivity, ingenuity, wealth, confidence, influence and impact?

I’ve identified 5 of them below and have observed the same ones in the industry titans and international superstars that I advise:

#1. Ted was Obsessed with Making Everything Better

In an interview with famed broadcaster Charlie Rose, Ted Turner said:

“I like to make things better. When I was in the news business, I was just trying to make things better. In the restaurant business, I’m just trying to make things better…

…when I was a boy my parents said ‘Do The Best You Can’. I’m just following orders.”

#2. Ted Focused on Producing Value vs. Making Money

This way of thinking is so contrarian to the way most businesspeople think (and that’s why most businesspeople never join the ranks of the financial and influential elite).

If your whole focus is on making money, it’s off delivering the staggering value that will create the fanatical followers who will pay you money.

Ted Turner was a Rotarian (as was my father and myself). The motto of Rotary is: “He profits most who serves the best.”

Of course, serve for the beauty and internal fulfillment of serving. But know that the inevitable by-product of phenomenal service to others (your customers, communities etc.) is material prosperity well-beyond anything you’ve yet to experience.

#3. Ted Played The Long Game

Some things never change as society changes. No matter what anyone tells you, traits like integrity and honesty will always yield success and victory. Yes–if you play the short game and cut ethical corners, you may win for a while.

But nothing is more valuable (and an industry differentiator) than the value of your good name. Making your reputation a priceless asset is a brilliant decision.

Turner was always honest. Always ethical. Always did his best to stay true to his word.

“I wanted my Dad to think I was worthwhile, like every son. And I wanted to impress my mother. It was great to have her proud of me.”

#4. Ted Went for Uncommon Opportunities

Turner said that building a television network was actually easy. Why? Because the barriers to entry were so high that most people didn’t have the capital nor the stomach to get in.

He did. And so he made a fortune. And changed the world.

The belief worth wiring into your mindset: go for the opportunities very few believe they can realize. It’ll be a lot easier than you think to get traction as well as to lead the field because there’s so little competition.

#5. Ted Built Bridges

Turner and Rupert Murdoch had been fighting for years. But as Ted Turner matured, he realized that energy spent on conflict is energy stolen from “production”.

So when Rupert Murdoch “went green” (Turner is a passionate advocate for environmental causes), he reached out to him with sincere congratulations.

Murdoch replied with an invitation for lunch. And a truce was forged.

Ted’s psychology: pick your battles. And focus on getting great things done versus trivialities and pettiness.

Ok. There you go my friend. Ted Turner’s psychological foundations that allowed him to craft an iconic life.

And as always, THAT’S my greatest wish for you.

All green lights…your fan,

My Answers to Your Questions…

Speaking of business icons, would you like to be in a small room with Sir Richard Branson and learn his insights on building a great company while living an inspiring life?

And would you love to spend 4 game-changing days in this room with me and some of the most successful, innovative and inspiring people on the planet at a rare gathering that will radically alter the way the rest of your life unfolds?

And seriously ready to 100X the few key areas of your life over the next 12 months while you enjoy life a lot more versus being frustrated and overwhelmed?…

…Excellent…here are my answers to all the questions I’ve been getting about my ultra-exclusive live event in December that everyone’s talking about…

yes, it’s true that all of the seats that I previously opened up to The Titan Summit 2014 have sold-out.

yes, Sir Richard Branson will be with us in person and on stage with me sharing his wisdom at The Titan Summit

yes, The Titan Summit is a truly world-class 4 day event featuring my all-star faculty of global experts on creating exponential results in your mindset, health, performance, business, lifestyle and service to our world.

yes, it will be held December 9-12 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Toronto.

yes, this isn’t one of my live events with 5000+ people. I’m keeping this event exclusive and intimate for those fortunate enough to get one of the scarce seats. Last year I limited the gathering to only 100 seats.

yes, the investment is $25,000. It’s expensive. But so worth it. You’ll get 10X what you pay in terms of value, information and associations with iconic businesspeople. It’s not for everyone–just those who want to rise to the level of iconic and make history with their lives.

yes, I’m willing to open up a few more seats today at the early registration investment of only $9997

Get one of them now. They’ll be gone soon

The Titan Summit 2014 will definitely sell out…wait and the reality is you’ll miss this opportunity to be in the room with us, experiencing the learning, transformations and alliances that very few human beings will get…

So my strong encouragement is that you release any excuses and JUST DO THIS so you get in :)…you’ll never look back!…

Get one of the limited seats now
