Here’s an instant way to intelligently evaluate all advice you receive: would you trade places with the person giving it?
I could end this post right here, but a few people may have gotten their panties in a twist after reading that, so I’ll continue.
Don’t take money advice from broke ass folks.
Don’t take biz advice from people who haven’t built their own thriving business.
Don’t take relationship advice from people who aren’t happy in their partnership.
This one tactic cut so much bullsh*t out of my life and business overnight.
If I wouldn’t trade places with the person, I simply smile, say thanks, and go on about my merry way.
Meet One Of My Mentors
In interviews, I often get asked who my mentors are.
The surprising truth is: I could count them all on my right hand right now.
This week, I want to share a video with you that I think will stick a boot so far up your backside to start taking action that you’ll taste leather.
And it’s from one of the thought leaders I follow religiously:
This is the perfect video to watch as we skid into the end of 2016.
A few of my favorite parts that had me enthusiastically yelling YES! at my screen:
- 1:10: how the f*ck do you NOT stay driven?
- 2:19: why NOBODY is stopping you in life — not Donald Trump, the Russians, nobody. If you are a minority, a female, if you’re transgender. NOBODY. <— This is so. so. good. (regardless of your political stance)
- 3:35: The first, second, and third part of the formula to building a big business (or anything that will positively impact the world).
6:55: why every “winner” in your life has ZERO sympathy for you.
What is one piece of advice that instantly cut BS out of your life? Or a quote you live by?
Will you share it with me in the comments? I’d love to hear it.
To taking things to the next level in 2017,
