The construction and installation of superior habits is a dominant focus for any epic producer.
Wire in awesome habits and amazing results follow automatically…
…and you’ll become a GIANT of getting big things done…
…so your life flies and you lift THE WORLD up with you…
When I watch the NBA players I’ve advised, the celebrity soccer stars who use my tools and the iconic business leaders who show up at my events like The Titan Summit [this year Sir Richard Branson will join me on the stage along with my all-star faculty], I see that their winning formulas have less to do with their willpower…and more to do with their routines.
Yes, of course it takes willpower while the habit is being installed. But once it gets wired in as a neural pathway and new way of being, the routine becomes easier to do than not to do…
…and the energy and willpower that was needed to create the habit gets freed up to improve your performance and achieve even greater results.
Ok. You know I’m obsessed with your rise to rare-air and producing results that wow…
So here’s an extremely powerful new tactic that has been delivering gorgeous results for the elite clients that I coach. [And please know that it's really helping me advance my own game massively, as well].
It’s called The Forced Optimization Strategy (FOS)…
…The idea’s this: forget self-discipline when it comes to getting to your health, career, financial and spiritual goals. What works 100X better is to install an automatic system that “forces” you to do the thing you need to do.
The reality of human nature is we generally get things done when there’s some fire under us to do them…so use this fact to give yourself a huge advantage…
Some simple examples:
Example #1: Getting ultra-fit is a game-changer. Everything in your life just works better when you’re alive with energy and peak health. But the reality is too many of us try to build the habit of working out via willpower. And so we end up giving up after a few weeks.
Using the Forced Optimization Strategy (FOS), you could “force” yourself to get uncommonly fit by hiring a trainer to come to your home at 6am three times a week. Now, you have to do the workout. Because she’ll be knocking at your front door tomorrow morning :)
Book this schedule onto your calendar for 3 or 4 months and you’re golden. It won’t be easy. But it’ll be worth it.
Example #2: If you like “The 2 Massage Protocol” I’ve been teaching at my live events recently because you get that massages dramatically boost energy, reduce the amount of sleep you need and keep you feeling like a lion, then book your therapist 3 months into the future so it’s a done deal.
No excuses. No alternatives. No lame reasons for not getting the ritual done.
Example #3: If this is the year you’re amped to grow your business/career exponentially (10% annual growth is so old-school), then “force” the creation of a new habit by meeting with your mastermind alliance every Friday afternoon or sign up for a webinar program that runs every week or schedule a team meeting every Monday where everyone comes to the table to clearly explain what they’ve done to accelerate results.
You can use the FOS to take more time off than you’ve taken off in years. Just ask yourself which trips and adventures would fuel your finest performance and help you live a life you love.
Then book the trips/adventures ahead 12 months. You’ll “force the optimization” even more if you pay for them.
I think you get the idea. Just run this protocol for a few weeks and you’ll get how awesome it is. And please remember: no idea works until you do the work :)
With respect, encouragement and tons of great wishes,
