#111 – The Ego Is The Enemy

Talent, ambitiousness, internal drive, potential and a chip on your shoulder. These qualities have helped to shape the world we live in today. Behind every great invention, idea, man or woman, likely lies some of these traits. Fortunately, people have said you share some of these qualities, haven’t they? That you have a natural talent for drawing. You’re the young gun that everyone talks about at the water cooler or the ambitious, hard worker that has achieved impressive accolades. You’re...


#110 – John Barrows | Guiding Principles For Your Life

“Principles are fundamental truths that serve as the foundations for behavior that gets you what you want out of life. They can be applied again and again in similar situations to help you achieve your goals.” - Ray Dalio Do you have principles that guide your life? No, I don’t mean the “live, laugh, love” quote on your wall. And I don’t mean the tribal tattoo that you got on your forearm, either. It’s more detailed than a quote, yet more simplistic than a book of rules. It’s a way to live...

#108 – Know Your Limits, But Never Stop Trying To Break Them | Kyle Maynard

Know your limits, but never stop trying to break them." -Kyle Maynard What if I told you that you could do anything, be anything you wanted? You could be a bestselling author, a motivational speaker, an entrepreneur. Physically, you could climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, practice MMA and even open up a CrossFit gym. Your accomplishments could actually be so staggering that Oprah Winfrey calls you “one of the most inspiring young men you will ever hear about. Arnold Schwarzenegger calls you a “champion...


#107 – How Developing A Growth Mindset Will Change Your Life | Mindset Book Review

I looked down at the bright red ink: 76/100 in bold letters, circled at the top of my paper. I glanced at my friend’s paper next to mine: 98/100. He looked nonchalant as if expecting this result. My heart sinks into my stomach. I couldn’t believe I stayed up all night studying for another “C”, while Brendan spent more time digging into LeBron’s jump shot than our textbooks. “He’s just smarter than I am, there’s nothing I can do”, I thought. Brendan, my best friend in high school, was a...


#106 – How Visualization & Relentless Work Ethic Can Help You Reach Your Goals | Julia DePalma

Visualization. Imagery. The Law of Attraction. From Jim Carrey to Oprah Winfrey to Conor McGregor, these mental practices have helped some of the most successful people in the world get to where they are today. For Carrey, it was a way to earn wealth. Visualization played a major part in the $10 million he earned in 1994. For Winfrey, she uses visualization “to become the highest, grandest vision possible for life”. McGregor says “if you can see it in your mind, you’ll see it before your...

John Wooden is quite possibly the greatest coach in the history of sports.

This man needs to introduction but we'll give him one anyways. He is one of the most polarizing figures in the history of Finance and Sales. His story goes from rags to riches to rags back to riches again. Leonardo DiCaprio played him in the movie about his life for God's sakes. He's the one, the only, Wolf of Wall St, Jordan Belfort.

If you’re reading this, you likely set goals. You’re ambitious, driven and think towards the future. But do you think big enough? No, seriously. How BIG do you think?

"Happiness doesn't make us grateful, gratitude makes us happy." Gratitude is a really powerful emotion. Not only does it make us feel good, but there are a number of positive health effects on both our mental and physical health. Whether through writing a thank you note, keeping a gratitude journal or just being extra polite to your morning barista, there are a ton of ways to show more gratitude.
