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,

How to Wake Up Early

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

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…

So how can you break free of “The Addiction to Distraction” so your days become WILDLY productive? And so you create a life you adore?

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.

FACT: From 5 am to 8 am are “The Golden Hours” that the most successful achievers in the world use to set up their days for success. The way you begin your day really does determine how you live your day.

These 3 hours are the hours of least distraction in your day. And when your energy is at its peak.

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.

Follow the steps I share and you’ll be getting up early within a few days (so you can achieve important things).

Watch the “How to Get Up Early” video now

May it serve your productivity and success beautifully.

Welcome to The 5 am Club :)

You now have two pieces of my formula for extreme achievement. Watch your inbox next week for my next video which will share the third piece of the formula…

…this next video will share the number #1 solution to the number #1 obstacle people around the world have told me is blocking them from the massive success they know they deserve.

Now is your time to shine. I’m here to help and with this formula for extreme achievement I’ve been sharing with you, your life is about to rise to a completely new level of WOW!

Wishing you 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.

About two weeks ago, an idea hit me so hard my thinking might never be the same. I was flying home from Miami. At 40,000 feet. Settled into my seat with a stack of magazines to “rip+read” (a practice I’ll explain sometime-maybe ask me on Twitter). I was going through OUTSIDE magazine and came across a fascinating new exercise trend called Paleo-Fitness. The leader’s name is Erwan Le Corre and basically he takes his clients outdoors, returns them to the land and gets them doing moves that cavemen did oh so many years ago (i.e., climbing trees, swimming underwater, stalking prey and cutting wood). The whole program is designed to get people to peak fitness. And into the mindset of a champion.

Le Corre’s back story is cool. He did triathlons, made soap as a job, and hunted for innovative ways to play at his physical (and mental) best. In 2004, he heard about a little known training manual written in 1912 by a French naval officer named Georges Hebert.

It seems that Hebert had a brush with death a number of years earlier. He’d been working on a naval ship located off the shores of Martinique when a volcano erupted, killing most of the area’s 30,000 inhabitants. Hebert and his colleagues saved over 700 lives-primarily due to the incredible condition they were in. This experience led him to coin his mantra: “Be Strong to Be Useful”. The idea being by getting to world-class fitness, we prepare ourselves to make a world-class difference.

“Be Strong to Be Useful.” I put down OUTSIDE magazine and sat silently for an hour. Maybe more. Hebert was right. How could I make the impact I’m devoted to making unless I have the stamina+physical strength+energy to do my mission? And what would business – and the world at large – look like if each one of us got so strong – and uberConditioned – that we became simply unstoppable in hot pursuit of what matters most.

I’ve done a few YouTube videos on unleashing your highest energy reserves and getting superfit. They are yours to watch, to help to amp up your conditioning. For now, I invite you to wrap your brain cells around the “Be Strong to Be Useful” motto that I’ve learned. And then, take the passionate action required to breathe that vision into reality. You, those around you and this big world of ours will be better for it.

Yes, indeed, most of us dread conflict as much as a dental visit or a speech in front of a room full of hecklers. And yet, conflict brings advantages – especially to businesses that really want to out – innovate their peers.

I recall a dinner on The Bosphorus in Istanbul where I chatted with an uberSuccessful entrepreneur. He enthusiastically shared his ideas on business-building, picking A Players (the bigger the dream, the more key the team) and delivering value to customers. And then he said something unforgettable: he revealed that his company hired a young man fresh out of business school with the sole job to passionately challenge every one of the great ideas the executive team came up with.
