Given that we cannot go outside and travel as well as we could before March, I passionately encourage you to use this period to go within.
Imagine taking the next 6 months to read transformational books, heal old wounds, upgrade your primary skills and plan out your next 20 years with ultra-clear intimacy.
Reading a book is having a conversation with the author. Pick up the right one, and you put it down - forever changed.
I’d love to help you play at your absolute best, in this era of immense upheaval. And so...
...I’m super excited to share that I’ve created a robust new audio program called The Victory Over Difficulty Anthem.
...I’m even happier to share that I’m giving it to you for free [even though it has a $95 value]. I’m doing this to celebrate your promise and to honor your gifts. You’re going to find this audio program really helpful to stay strong, positive and excellent during the pandemic.
P.S. We're also happy to provide you the transcription of today's episode at no cost:
Read the heroic books. One of the wonderful things that my father shared in our home was many of the great books from the complete works of Shakespeare, to the autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments with Truth.
Begin to read the great books of wisdom. You may not want to read the complete works of Shakespeare, but you should want to read Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet. What an amazing book. He carried it with him for many years to make sure every word was just perfect. You will want to read As You Think from James Allen, Man's Search for Meaning written by Viktor Frankl and Nelson Mandela's autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom.
You will also want to read the works of the icons that have graced business, productivity, creativity, and society. That's the wonderful thing about reading the heroic books- it allows you to get into their minds.
You'll learn how they dealt with difficulty, how they handled self-doubt, how they rebounded and leveraged heartbreak, how they en joy their times at the top of the mountain, and how they dealt with their times in the valley of darkness. They represent the human journey. One of great values of learning is you can collapse time. You can distill what took an icon 50 years to live and write in just one book.
