Key Points

1. No One Else Cares About Your Success 

The world doesn’t give a sh*t about you.

That might sound harsh, but it’s the reality of the world we live in.

No one cares about your success.

Not the universe, not god, not the devil, no one else cares whether or not you are successful.

Sure your parents and your girlfriend might want you to be successful, but no one else truly cares about success the way that you should.

Success is your duty.

It’s your obligation.

And it’s your responsibility.

You owe it to yourself, not the world to be successful.

So get out there and get hustling.

No one is going to do it but you.

2. The Journey to Success Never Ends 

Guess what.

You have never achieved “success”.

I don’t care if you are the #1 salesman in your company if you have broken 6-figures, or even if you are the richest man on the planet.

Success never ends, because there is always more that you can do.

That’s the beauty of this journey called life.

As long as you draw breath there is more.

More to create, more to build, more to achieve.

Never settle and don’t rest on your laurels.

You are only as good as your next victory, not your last one.

3. Become a Voracious Learner

If you want to achieve greatly in any industry, then you must become a voracious learner.

Buy every single book that you can get your hands on, purchase as many audio programs as you can afford, if you can fly out to an event to hear from top speakers, then do it.

You must realize that your wealth, success, and happiness will grow in direct proportion to your personal growth.

Commit right now, this very second, to become a lifelong voracious learner.

Just like the journey of success never ends, the journey of knowledge and personal growth never ends.

So sit back, buckle up, and enjoy.

4. When You Are On Purpose You Will Find the Energy 

If you are on purpose, if you are doing what you are meant to do, if you are pursuing the goals, dreams, and ambitions that light you up inside, then you will find the resources and energy that you need to push through.

You might bitch and moan, you might whine about being hungry and tired.

But when you are on purpose, everything else becomes secondary and you will find the energy to break through and achieve real success.

5. Find a Way to 10X Everything in Your Life

We all have goals, we all have dreams, we all have ambitions.

If you are listening to this show, that is a given.

But are they big enough?

What is your goal for the year?

I want you to take that goal and multiply it by 10.

If you want to make $100,000 then congratulations, this is officially the first year that you are going to set out to make $1,000,000!

But it’s not enough to just set bigger goals, you must back them with 10x planning and 10x execution.

You must realize that you are capable of far more than you could ever imagine.

But you hold yourself back by thinking, planning, and acting small.

So break out of this habit right now.

10X your goals, 10X your action, and 10X your life.
