How you do one thing is how you do everything

How you do one thing is how you do everything

Early in my career I noticed a pattern...

I’d build things up to a certain point, then I'd break them down to a certain point. 

For every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction:

A destructive action creates a destructive reaction, and a constructive action creates a constructive reaction. Pretty simple.

The pattern of somebody's existence in one aspect of life, big or small, will be present in their existence in everything else.  It doesn't matter how small something is, it will be present in the largest thing that person does. You can't have a breech in a tiny thing and not expect it to show up in something massive. It reflects everywhere.

Realizing this makes you take everything a lot more seriously. If somebody isn't committed to their business and their success, that lack of commitment will show up everywhere in their life. 

The cool thing is that you're not stuck this way. I think this is the mistake a lot of people make. They think that once they identify the pattern and cause and effect, they think that that's who they are, and they're stuck like that forever. That's not true at all. 

We explain how to identify and change these patterns in the video. 

How do you deal with friends and family who are against you?

How do you deal with friends and family who are against you?

“9 out of 10 businesses fail”
“Don’t get your hopes up too much”
“Maybe you should just finish your degree”

These are the verbal blows that entrepreneurs are hit with when we go against the status quo.

Do you have friends and family who are against you when it comes to entrepreneurship and business?

In today's episode we discuss methods to deal with friends and family…
(Including the 1 question you can ask them to turn the tables and get to a mutual understanding)

Why being yourself is a myth in life and business

Why being yourself is a myth in life and business

Why do people think its bad to be somebody who you're not?

Why do people always say "Be yourself". "Stick to your roots" and "Don't forget where you come from?"

In this video we discuss why being yourself is a myth and a limitation in both life and business.

It's counter-intuitive and it goes against everything that you've been told.

How do you come up with an awesome business idea?

How do you come up with a good idea for your business?

Most people believe that the thing stopping them from starting their own business is a "good idea". I hear people say things like: "I just need an idea". "All the good ideas are taken" or "I had an ides for something but then somebody else did it".

Most people put ideas on a pedestal and scour the earth for the right one but they're making a huge mistake.

If you search for ideas you will never find one. You must go looking for problems instead.
