I thought I’d push myself to do a thought exercise and distill 24 of the best lessons life has taught me. So far.
Oh, before I share them with you, for everyone asking from across the planet, Personal Mastery Academy 2018 is completely sold out.
We have a record number in the room this year and I sincerely congratulate everyone who was able to get a seat. Your life will never be the same after our two days together next month. Bravo.
My next live event is The Titan Summit 2018, our flagship 4-day experience for empire-builders and history-creators this December. The reality is that seats are already super scarce because so many people from last year’s event renewed.
You can get on the waiting list for The Titan Summit 2018 here.
Ok. Let’s roll on the 24 lessons I hope will cause potent elevations in your performance, joyfulness and influence.
#1. Life replies to the quality of your character. As you rise, everything ascends with you.
#2. Do your best then let go—and let life do the rest.
#3. You can’t build a beautiful future if you haven’t worked through the burdens of your past.
#4. The quality of your performance depends on the strength of your practice.
#5. Critics are just dreamers who got scared. Forgive them. They know no better.
#6. Early to rise wins.
#7. See your work as your craft. Sweat the tiniest of details and push yourself to produce outright magic. For there your greatness lives.
#8. As you leave the crowd in hot pursuit of a rare-air life, you will be misunderstood. Our world was built by people who the masses called ‘weird’.
#9. Success without soulfulness is a waste of time.
#10. Each day you receive a gift: the chance to show kindness to others. To neglect this present is to misuse your days.
#11. Watch what most people do and do the opposite. You’ll be just fine.
#12. Cleaning out the toxic people and corrosive influences in your life completely transforms your life for the better.
#13. Be a minimalist. Do just a few things each day. At genius. [Please don’t confuse busy with effective].
#14. Starting your day with sweaty exercise delivers consistently better days.
#15. As you become more successful, the seduction to rest on your laurels becomes greater. Maintain a white belt mentality. Never stop learning and growing.
#16. When you see flowers, always stop and smell them. [Yes, I am serious].
#17. Travel a lot. It’s a brilliant education and breeds sophistication.
#18. Be the most generous person in every room you’re in.
#19. Read for 60 minutes every single day. For the rest of your life.
#20. Tell the people you love how much you love them. All the time. [Hug and kiss them a lot too].
#21. Keep a journal. It’s a fine place to record your gratitude, process through pain, note your victories and reclaim your most luminous self.
#22. Give your customers massive value without seeking any return. They are the people who allow you to have food on your family's table.
#23. Have fun. Get great at working super hard then enjoying life gorgeously.
#24. Be of service. To the world.
P.S. So many of my readers are asking when my new book The 5 AM Club will be available. It’s now at the editing stage with my publisher. Then I get the manuscript back for another few rounds of refining. Just so you know where we are at. Thanks to everyone encouraging me. Means more to me than words can say.
