Quick Hit #112: Consistency > Intensity

8/14/2019
More
What is more important: consistency or intensity? While I love me some intensity, what matters much more in your ability to create results —is your commitment to being consistent day in and day out. Because too often, here's what happens: You get excited about a goal, dream or target and choose to go "all in": a new business, launching a side hustle, writing a book, completing a physical challenge, etc. On this Quick Hit, I'll share the power of consistency and how to build a foundation...

Momentum is a powerful force: when you have it, you feel as if anything is possible —when you don’t, you wonder if it’s EVER going to work out for you. Here’s the truth: Momentum is not something you sit around on the couch waiting for, instead: Momentum is created. Momentum is chosen. Momentum is cultivated.

Obsessed. It’s a word most people use when they see someone who is pushing the needle on their lives with a certain intensity.

Because too many people dabble, go “halfway” and never see the results they dreamed of —due to a lack of intensity. This is where the Academy’s latest guest comes in —Evan Stewart.

7/24/2019
More
Every week, I get messages on social media, direct message and email asking me for advice. And many times, I answer and give free coaching to people —but then realize 3 months later they haven't changed. This is a problem —and is has to do with how we value "free" information with zero investment (mental, physical, emotional and financial.)
