35: Humility, The 4 Ways You Must Use Its Power

“Steve Jobs famously gave fiery and emphatic speeches, and then immediately asked his engineers to pick apart his logic. The humility in leadership is essential to cultivating winning teams.” (click to tweet) It’s easy to see the humility in others. We can smell a braggart from a mile away, and can feel the self-defeatists crippling themselves with too much of it. This vantage point is easy. But what about gauging our own humility? When we take that personal inventory, we are duped by the...


34: Art Markman, How You Create A Culture of Smart

“Being smart is having effective habits that lead you to acquire high-quality knowledge and then using that knowledge when you need it.” - Art Markman (click to tweet) Intelligence is difficult to define. An IQ test will tell you that it’s your ability to take an IQ test. And a diploma will say it’s your ability to sit through lectures. Intelligence, at its core, is a combination of habit, knowledge, and application. And because of this multi-pronged definition, it is one of those most...


33: Dynamic Duo Training, Why Your Diet and Exercise Is More Flexible Than You Think

“The best diet out there is the one you can adhere to and be consistent with, because that’s going to create results.” - Eric Martinez (click to tweet) Diet and exercise is difficult. That’s because we make it more difficult than it needs to be. With the health industry popularizing rigid diet plans as the answer, we have been fooled into thinking there is an all-in-one solution to the diet and fitness question. Well, there is no one answer. Instead, there is a mindset where you...


32: Fear, Why Playing It Safe Is Actually Dangerous

“Since most of our lives aren’t spent dodging genuine predators, here’s the most real and important fear that permeates our life today: fear of rejection.” (click to tweet) Cavemen had reason to be afraid. They lived amongst the lions, tigers, and bears. We, on the other hand, live in our big-city apartments with no legitimate threat to our health. But just because we don’t coexist with predators threatening our well-being, our day-to-day lives impose a different fear: fear of rejection....


31: Chris Guillebeau, Why Your Strength Is Your Side Hustle

“Adaptability, not persistence, is the key to success. Being able to walk away from something and choose a different path is an underrated skill.” - Chris Guillebeau (click to tweet) The path to full-time entrepreneur isn’t quitting your job. But it makes sense to think you need to. Our day jobs take up the bulk of the day. We wake up in the morning, get ready for work, and then don’t get back home until late in the evening. It’s hard to imagine a life with us burning midnight oil at home...


30: Chelsea Fagan, How To Improve Your Financial Diet

“You can get money advice anywhere. What makes a difference is if the voice you’re getting it from is something you actually want to read.” - Chelsea Fagan (click to tweet) Personal finance feels like a personal attack. Between saving for retirement to managing debt, the required tasks can get suffocating. It’s indisputable that the more thoughtful you become with personal finance, the less spending money you have, which for most of us means the less fun we’re having. And for most of us,...


29: The 3 Steps to Harnessing Your Motivation

“Answering the question: “What are you scared of?” is the antidote to a lack of motivation.” (click to tweet) Your goals must align with your values for motivation to work. However, we lose sight of this fact when life gets tough. Maybe it’s our peers ‘outperforming’ us or our family expecting more. Whatever the case may be, the answer is not to push harder but rather evaluate the story you’re telling yourself. Why are you motivated to be your best self? If the answer isn’t clear, then we...


28: Nathan Hirsch, Building The Business You Need

“I’m against business plans. If you’re set in stone on a business plan, you don’t read the market and do the trial-and-error phase, where you figure out what works and what doesn’t work.” - Nathan Hirsch (click to tweet) The best business ideas are staring right at us. But we can’t see them because we’re blinded by frustration. It is at the root of whatever problems we’re experiencing where the most promising business ideas exist. Professional or personal, if we take a moment to breathe...


27: Leah Weiss, How To Live Your Purpose, Reclaim Your Sanity, and Embrace the Daily Grind

“How can you do anything effectively if you don’t understand the ‘what’ and ‘why’ behind it?” - Leah Weiss (click to tweet) Mindfulness requires consistent attention. This is because our lives are challenging. We wake up in the morning to dozens of emails, sit in traffic amongst honking cars, and then lock our brains into focus for the rest of the day’s work. If we’re not constantly checking in with our mental gears, the threads can loosen and we are unable to stay afloat. On today’s...


26: How To Get An Edge When It Matters Most (Daniel McGinn, Psyched Up)

“Your intuition will often betray you when it comes to identifying what will help settle your mind and emotions in an optimal way.” - Daniel McGinn (click to tweet) Crumbling under pressure can be prevented. Contrary to popular belief, the high-stakes situations we find ourselves in don’t need to be the daunting experiences we perceive them to be. Through a series of techniques, we can deconstruct our emotions and the situation to better favor our chances at achieving success. In doing...


24: Daniel Coyle, Why Your Culture Can Be Coded

“What makes great teams unique is they’ve aligned their practices, leadership, and communication with the way our brains are built to create connection, cohesion, and culture.” - Daniel Coyle (click to tweet) Vulnerability is the root of connection. Unfortunately our brains are not wired to be vulnerable. In group collaborations, we close off to each other, depleting the room of the chemistry it requires to succeed. In order to solve this, the leader must lead by setting the standard of...


23: The Subconscious Mind, How You Can Harness Its Power, Part 2

“Do you want that second processor that’s powerful and constantly running to solve problems for you? All you have to do is feed it the right problems the right way, and frequently. And then let it do its job.” - Dr. Alex Mehr (click to tweet) We forget about our subconscious. That’s because thinking occurs in your conscious mind. But what if there were specific strategies that helped you activate your subconscious without having to think about it. By implementing routines into your daily...


21: Annie Duke, The Best Decision-Making Framework

“If you take the zoom lens off your camera to see the wide angle of what the arc of your life might look like, you start to imagine future scenarios based on the decision and end up with a better, more rational decision.” - Annie Duke (click to tweet) When making decisions, embrace uncertainty. Because then you’ll know what you don’t know. From there, you can calculate the probabilities of potential outcomes based on the information you have. If the likelihood isn’t convincing, you know...


20: The Subconscious Mind, How You Can Harness Its Power

“I think your subconscious mind is as powerful, if not more powerful, than your conscious mind.” - Dr. Alex Mehr (click to tweet) What is your brain doing right now? Obviously it’s taking in the visual stimuli of this text and trying to comprehend it, but that is just your conscious mind. Think about what’s required to hold your phone in place, which muscles need to be activated, and how about the organs needing to function correctly so you stay breathing with a beating heart? The...


19: Dr. Eran Elinav, How To Personalize Your Diet

“We can optimize our levels of energy by eating foods that spike our blood sugar before maximum athletic effort.” - Dr. Eran Elinav (click to tweet) Your body runs like a machine. Without rest, it breaks down. And without fuel, it can’t run. So today, we address the root of the equation: what is a perfect diet? We’ve all read the latest diet trends, but they seem to contradict each other. One says high protein and no carbs, and the next says high fat and lots of carbs? Nutrition is a...


18: Samir Chibane, Why Dropshipping Is The Future

“Don’t sell products you like. Sell products that are trending, that are hot. The fidget spinner the week it was in mass demand. That’s the sweet spot.” - Samir Chibane (click to tweet) We now live in a global economy. No longer does starting a product-based business require ordering inventory and selling through your own store. Those were the old days. Today, you can start your own company, market your product through Facebook ads, and anytime someone places an order online, your...


17: Mindset, How You Can Control Your Thinking

“While the rest of the world runs around like chickens with their heads cut off, there you are. Controlled. Deliberate. Constantly improving. The wise sage in the corner.” (click to tweet) We’ve all sat in traffic. And listened to the effects bumper-to-bumper has on our inner monologue. There we are, pleasantly commuting to work and in the next moment, brushing up on the cliffs of complete mental breakdown. This is our mind’s favorite trick: convincing us that it’s the one in control....


16: Lewis Howes, How To Be Your Most Genuine Self

“We are inspired and moved when we see someone who is vulnerable. We are not inspired by someone who has all the answers all the time.” - Lewis Howes (click to tweet) Relationships are the key to success. And the key to relationships is vulnerability. If we accept this line of logic, then success requires vulnerability. And this might be hard to wrap your heads around, as most of us are conditioned by society’s definition of success. However, if you take the time to think through your...


15: Jared Kleinert, How To Harness The Internet

15: Jared Kleinert, How To Harness The Internet “We’re in a world where there is no central body for sharing ideas or inventions. With the Internet, ideas are dispersed everywhere.” - Jared Kleinert (click to tweet) Gone are the days of gatekeepers. Today, because of the Internet, the individual has more reach and power than the big corporation. YouTube personalities like Jake Paul are thriving while Hollywood studios are dying. In every industry, the power has shifted from the...


14: Money, Rethinking Your Definition

“True wealth comes from owning a nut tree. Then a grove of nut trees. Then a forest of nut trees. So many nut trees that you have to hire others to take care of your nut tree forest.” (click to tweet) Money is very important. It buys us freedom, health, security, and knowledge. But this isn’t enough for us to be happy. There’s a missing piece, and that is pursuing our dreams and ambitions. Money does not have the power to do that for us. That is why if we lock too strongly onto the...
