In Demanding Situations, Do This

I’ve said it before, and I think it’s really fitting, given everything that’s going on right now: We’re here because our ancestors knew how to compete and survive. As human beings, we’re uniquely equipped for demanding situations like this, more so than any other animals on the planet. In times like these, I have some […]

Control This Factor or It Will Control You

Struggling to make progress right now? Or feel like you’re working really hard, but not moving as fast as you could? Check out my video above. You might not be the real roadblock here. Instead, there’s something else that might be holding you back, something that can even create and control YOU—without you realizing it. […]

Are You Telling the Wrong Story?

There’s a question I ask the most dedicated people I work with. They’re in a group we call “The Best”—because that’s what we’re all 100% committed to—and they work with me for at least a year, usually more. I ask them this: “What’s the story you’re living out?” If they’ve created a great story for […]

This Ability Will Keep You at #1

If you want to get to #1 in your game, you need to be #1 in this category, too. If you want to stay at #1 over the next 20 years and climb to the very top of the heap, this ability will get you there. I use it during and after my Personal Story […]

Your Story Lives and Dies by Its Details

When someone asks me to tell a story, I tell a STORY—even when I’m doing a casual Q&A at my Personal Story Power event. I never want to pass on an opportunity to hone my craft. And let’s be honest: I’ve never been good at operating at anything less than 100%. So when an audience […]

Are You Playing Small to Fit In?

You’re different. You know why I believe that? You’re here in my community, and the people who end up here usually are. They demand more of themselves. They push harder. They don’t settle for silver because their hearts are set on gold. And maybe you’re a little intense about your quest to be the Best. […]

Use This One Word to Accelerate Your Business

I brought in a heavy-hitter for this week’s video. One of my A-Lister community members asked me for the best way to accelerate her business. As you may know, when I made my declaration to be the best stage performer of my time, my wife Dawn was working side by side with me, finding me […]

The Advice I Would Give My 9-Year-Old Self

Have you ever wished you could go back and have a frank conversation with your 9-year-old self? Maybe share some hard-won wisdom to get you through those tough times ahead? What would you say to your younger self? That’s what BeeBee Fenix, one of my A-Lister community members asked me this week. I was excited […]

The Greatest Obstacle to Your Success—Solved

“What’s the greatest obstacle to success?” That’s what my A-Lister community member, Kevin Naylor, asked me a few weeks ago. I knew the answer immediately, and it’s the whole reason I lay out my clothes for the next day before I go to sleep. Even the smallest details like this contribute to your success—or detract […]

Why a New Year’s Resolution Is Not Enough

I’ve got a big problem with New Year’s Resolutions. Don’t get me wrong: If you’re looking ahead at 2020 with some big goals for yourself, I applaud you. As I always tell you, championships are scheduled, and putting some stakes in the ground for the coming year is a great way to get better and […]
