The 11 Things Life’s All About

Monday, April 24th, 2017

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the thick of thin things.

So seductive to spend your finest hours climbing mountains that, at the end, turn out to be the wrong ones.

I want you to experience an uncommon life.

One where you feel fully alive, release your chains, display your gifts and help the world.

So kindly remember…

The true leader–the genuine world-builder–lives to the point. Acutely concentrated on the few high priorities that will deliver the life of their greatest aspirations. At the end.

Please find below what I believe to be [as best as I can tell] the 11 most essential pursuits of a legendary life:

#1. Self-honor. This means being true to yourself. Celebrating your virtues. Accepting your flaws. Respecting your values. Doing your dreams. Even if all around you don’t get you.

#2. Personal heroism. The brighter the fire in your belly to achieve something special, the more hurts you’ll have. The more you play out on the jagged edges of your greatest potential, the more fears you’ll face. And the more falls you’ll take. Continuing with what you’ve committed to breeds deep fulfillment. And authentic power.

#3. Genuine connection. We are built to love. Have the bravery to open the heart you have contracted from life’s disappointments. This is how the heroes roll.

#4. Creative expression. I’m a super creative person. Ideas flow relentlessly [often captured on air sickness bags on airplanes]. Ridiculously curious. Adore learning. Home is packed [stacked] with books. My guess is you’re the same. And really dialling in your devotion to express your creativity will fuel your joy. And raise your impact.

#5. Delivery on opportunity. The job of the leader is to get things done. The obsession of the Titan is implementation, not just conversation. Amazing what happens to your self-identity and confidence when you transcend procrastination and do what you need to do. No matter how hard.

#6. Modelling possibility. Yes–I know I say this a lot [because I seriously want this to be a foundational thought for you]: the world needs more heroes–why wait for them when you can become one of them? Each day you are blessed with the chance to show people what positivity/productivity/audacity and dignity look like. Doing so with undefeatable consistency is where the giants among us play.

#7. Experiencing beauty. Exceptional achievement without ongoing enjoyment is an empty win. Yes–own your craft, produce your mastery and exploit your potential. But please: travel widely. Read deep books. Laugh loudly with loved ones. Savor inspirational art. Eat awesome food. And spend time in Nature.

#8. Pushing adventure. The human brain [and spirit] craves novelty. We grow and expand our capacities by doing difficult things. What you most resist is holding your bravery. Take it back.

#9. Scaling humility. So the thing about success is when it shows up, it’s easy to lose the hunger/sincerity/empathy/industry and relatability that got you there. That’s why so many empires fall. And so many icons fail. The one thing you absolutely need to protect as you rise into rare-air is your “boots on the groundedness”. Because a major key to legendary is longevity. And the moment your ego rules your performance is the day you step onto the pathway of irrelevance.

#10. Serving humanity. Most of my adult life I’ve been spreading this core message [long before it became cool]: impact is more valuable than income. And what matters most isn’t only how you live. It’s who you help. Personally–I’ve never been so invested in doing my part to serve as many people as possible. It’s a primary calling for any real A-Player. And I respectfully ask you to do the same.

#11. Intimacy with mortality. Live with death in mind. Not in a sad and depleting way. But with the mindset [and heartset] that you, and I, never know when our last day will show up.

Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius said it so inspirationally: “In the life of a man, his time is but a moment, his being an incessant flux, his sense a dim rushlight, his body a prey of worms, his soul an unquiet eddy, his fortune dark and his fame doubtful.”

So stop overthinking every move. Stop worrying about things that probably will never happen. Stop playing small with your brilliance. Stop being so terrified of reflection. And start living the way the best part of you knows you need to be living.

So at the end, you’ll have been fully human. And genuinely amazing.

If this piece I’ve written for you with an open heart and, hopefully, the utmost of authenticity speaks to you…

…and if you feel you’re finally ready to express your gifts, declare victory over your fears, feel extraordinarily happy/strong/peaceful and rise to a way of being that’s world-class…

…then you really should watch this inspirational video because your highest life is waiting for you and days are slipping away.

And I also strongly encourage you to let go of all your excuses and make the choice that will beautifully [and swiftly] elevate the rest of your life by getting one of the final seats left for my famous event Personal Mastery Academy here.

We’re 96% sold out…

I would really really really love to teach you how the most successful and fulfilled people on the planet do it…

…when you get one of the few seats that remain before we’re sold out for another year you’ll learn:

–how to rewire your thinking so greatness is automatic + and fearlessness is your default

–the science behind genius and the tools for you to live it daily through my proprietary world-builder systems

–my advanced methods for exponential productivity + prosperity that I teach only to the billionaires I advise [these techniques alone will pay for your tuition investment x50].

–potent ways to break through your limits to own your game and be the heavyweight champion of your field

–revolutionary tactics to live a life you absolutely adore

And you’ll spend two days with some of the most successful + wonderful people on the planet…

Wait and you’ll probably not get in this year…

So just DO THIS: go ahead and get one of the few remaining seats here

Hope this post I worked hard for you on has helped.

Make this time of your life an epic time of your life. Believe in your talents. Honor your gifts. And get ready to inspire the world.

Love + respect,

P.S. Definitely go ahead and watch this inspirational video now before it comes down

26 Big Lessons 2016 Taught Me

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

One of my rituals to run as we near a new year is to deconstruct the past 12 months to raise awareness so I can repeat [and refine] what worked and remove what didn't.

One of my rituals to run as we near a new year is to deconstruct the past 12 months to raise awareness so I can repeat [and refine] what worked and remove what didn’t.

I also do a “100 Lessons This Year Taught Me” list within my journal.

I thought it might serve you well if I shared‎ 26 of them with you. So here you go:

#1. A superb mindset without an elevated heartset [a word I’ve been introducing in my work along with “healthset” and “soulset”] is a fake win. You need all four of these interior arenas operating at world-class to bring your brightest fire into the world.

#2. Being productive at your craft is important. Being productive in your devotion to grow as a human is essential. [Inner empires precede outer ones].

#3. Be a warrior when it comes to delivering on your ambitions. And a saint when it comes to treating people with respect, modeling generosity and showing up with outright love.

#4. The most important things in life have nothing to do with things.

#5. Creative masters get that time in solitude is the A-Player’s peak protocol. [There’s a difference between being busy and being productive. And there’s a reason why the legends spend a lot of time alone].

#6. Being out on the jagged edges of your abilities is a scary place to be. So few have the guts to play here. Your weaker self thinks you’re being foolish. People think you’re strange. Peers will copy you when you get good. But this is ‎where the great ones live.

#7. Your income reflects your self-identity. Your impact reveals your personal story.

#8. What society calls impossible, the visionary sees as the untried.

#9. Everyone alive today is doing the bes‎t they can do based on the way they see the world. Their level of perception is driving the quality of their behavior. Don’t judge them. Understand them.

#10. People who cause others pain are people in a lot of pain.

#11. Your elite performance routines will not work if you don’t do the work to make them work.

#12. Own your morning and you’ll win your day [yes–I’m still writing The 5 AM Club. It’s been two years. I just want to get every word right for you. Thank you for your patience. And the tremendous encouragement].

#13. Your past was perfect preparation for your gorgeous future. Honor it versus regret it.

#14. Long meals with loved ones, sunsets and full moons, walks in the woods on crisp Autumn days and deep talks with new friends [in the South of Italy] are massive forms of wealth. Money doesn’t buy true riches like these.

#15. Humility shows your greatness. [When I hung out with Woz–the co-founder of Apple–at The Titan Summit in Zurich a few weeks ago, I met one of the most modest + kindest people I’ve ever met‎. Powerful experience for me]. True Titans don’t brag.‎

#16. To lead is to serve. [This past July, standing in Nelson Mandela’s prison cell on Robben Island, I got that insight deeper into my core than ever before].

#17. Most people have really good hearts. They’re just really scared to take down the armor that has allowed them to survive. Your job is to inspire them to do so.

#18. My life works a lot better when I’m reading every day. And a house full of books [analog] is a magical home.

#19. Make the time to mentor, coach and develop your team. You’ll grow your business swiftly by helping your people unleash their gifts beautifully. And it’s the right thing to do. [Leaders grow more leaders].

#20. Less ego. More authenticity. Less me, more we. Less talk, more do.

#21. The toxic people you’ve allowed into your life are costing you your dreams.

#22. The more I invest in personal growth + professional game, the more my ability to influence positively rises exponentially.

#23. Talk to yourself like you love yourself. You wouldn’t speak to your loved ones the way you sometimes speak to you.

#24. The more powerful you become the less you’ll need to advertise how powerful you are.

#25. You really can Lead Without a Title. I met the JoBurg janitor again this past year. The Michelangelo of The Washroom. Still sees himself as an Ambassador for South Africa [someone please give this man a medal]. Still works like it’s the most important job on the planet. Still smiles like a little kid. Still teaches me what being a good person is all about.

#26. Stop waiting for the‎ world to provide more heroes. And–today–start becoming one of them.

I hope I’ve served you well over 2016. I’ll work even harder for you in 2017.

I have your back. I’m in this with you. And I’m counting on you to bring on the fullness of your talents in the new year for the benefit of your potential, your family, your community and all of us who are longing to see you fly.

With love + respect,

Robin

My Best Rituals to x100 Your Results [Deep Post]

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

Your genetics predict your success so much less than your daily rituals do.

Install world-class habits and you’ll experience world-class results.

The pros get this. The amateurs don’t.

With this in mind (and heart), I’m doing something special for you today.

I usually only teach The Rituals of Legendary Producers to my Titans. Or at Personal Mastery Academy each June. But today I’ll walk you through three of them.

Yes, they are eccentric.

Yes, they work like rocket fuel.

Yes, you need to do the work to get the glory.

Ritual #1: The Second Wind Workout [2WW]

Working out is one of the finest methods known for multiplying your productivity and prosperity. You’ll reduce the fear hormone cortisol in your system, release the inspirational neurotransmitter dopamine and recalibrate serotonin (which kickstarts your joy).

Add to these beautiful truths the gorgeous facts that you’ll keep body fat low, heighten energy and promote longevity and getting fit like Federer is a game-changer.

Here’s the thing: if you truly get how great fitness is, why would you only work out once a day?

And so…

…I teach clients at The Titan Summit and Personal Mastery Academy to do a “Second Wind Workout” (2WW) at the end of their workday.

Gives them massive game in the evening. Beats depletion. And makes the end of the day one of the best pieces of the day.

Ritual #2: The Daily 5 + The Nightly 3

I’ve been teaching this one for years. To NIKE and Starbucks. To NBA stars and music legends. It works because research has confirmed that when we celebrate “small wins”, our brains get fired up and motivation comes alive.

And because greatness is more about evolution versus revolution: small daily optimizations, when done consistently over time, deliver epic results.

So every morning, please record 5 tiny acts of beautiful progress that you commit to executing on before the day is done.

The Daily 5 ritual ensures you’ll finish 150+ acts of excellence every month. And 1800+ achievements one year from today. Remarkable, yes?

You’re going to get to one year from today anyway. Why not arrive at this destination with a whole new level of momentum, mastery and personal power?

The Nightly 3 routine involves simply writing down three great things that happened to you during your day.

The brain has a negativity bias we need to relentlessly fight against. This primitive instinct served us 1000+ years ago. Destroys our brilliance today.

Noticing items to be grateful for is the antidote to apathy. And the cure for stagnation.

Please note: If you want to get one of the limited memberships into Personal Mastery Academy Online where I teach you all of the daily routines of the world’s most successful people + my most advanced self-transformation tactics, go here

Ritual #3: The 2 Massage Protocol [2MP]

All I can share with you is this: seems strange and works like magic.

Want to sleep less so you join my famous 5 AM Club that now has members in the millions?

Set to have ridiculous amounts of focus, stamina, vitality and creativity?

Ok. Good. Go get two massages a week.

“But Robin, I don’t have time and what would my team think and that’s pretty expensive,” I’ve heard 1000 times.

Trust the ritual by the ROI (Return on Investment).

Your output will pay for itself exponentially. And your team will say zero when they watch you produce like Michelangelo.

Ok. Longer message than usual but you know I’m obsessed with delivering value. And helping you grow. And ensuring you fly.

If you understand the power of learning to transform your life, then definitely make the decision that I predict will change the way the rest of your life unfolds…

…and get one of the remaining memberships here to my ultra-powerful course Personal Mastery Academy Online (PMAO).

PMAO will walk you through the best information I teach on becoming an elite performer.

PMAO will teach you how the billionaires I coach think, how the sports stars I advise live and how the masters stay at world-class.

PMAO comes with a total money-back guarantee so there is ZERO risk to try this out. It’s a beautiful training course. Very results-oriented. Absolutely first-rate content.

We’re closing doors soon so wait and you’ll be too late.

Snap up your membership here

Hope this post really helps you x100 your professional and personal results.

Life’s too short to play small with your talent.

Be great. Bye.

Stop This Drama

Friday, November 4th, 2016

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

I’m sitting on a sun-soaked terrace as I write this important message to you.

I came here in part to get away from my usual life, feel the California vibes and draw inspiration to keep going on my new book The 5 AM Club.

But…

…what I really want to challenge you (with love and respect) on today is to make a brave move to remove toxic influences from your life.

You can do this. Your results will multiply when you do this. It’ll cost your greatness too much if you don’t do this.

Look, you can produce magnificent work + own your craft + lift our world. Or you can be around energy stealers, dream crushers and negative naysayers.

You can’t do both. You just can’t.

And so, to help you as you rise, I shot a very heartfelt video in my hotel room called The Zero Drama Life Method.

If you’re ready to grow your success, x50 your positivity and increase your impact, you’ll LOVE this video!

Go ahead and watch it here

I’m calling the 3 training videos I’ve handcrafted for you here in San Diego The Personal Mastery Recordings.

Each one is fairly short. And super practical if you’re interested in personal mastery and living your power.

No cost, whatsoever. Just pure value. Designed to be of acute service you.

All I ask is that you watch the 3 videos. Share them so we spread the message. And live the material.

Our world needs more genuine heroes. I’m counting on you to become one of them.

Lots of love,

Robin

P.S. If you want to finally remove the toxic people who are draining your energy from your life, watch this free training video I made for you before it comes down.

All green lights.
