    How have you responded to what felt like catastrophic failures? How did you process not getting the job you applied for or seeing your business and efforts fall apart? What is the best way to respond when people you love doubt you will ever find success because of your past failures? In this Q & A, Tom breaks down how to reframe and learn from your failures by interrupting the wrong thoughts, and seeing what you can do better next time. He reveals exactly why having people you love doubt you can be the gift anyone can possibly offer you. Being mindful that failure is a lesson and not an experience to be tied to or defined by will help you embrace the gift of failure, which exists to help you acquire skills faster. Tom's is sharing exactly how you can have mind blowing success and surpass everyone's expectations, even your own. SHOW NOTES: Reacting | Respond to setbacks, negativity and failure with ‘Good' [1:48]Do it Different | Tom breaks down the reason you can see failures and say ‘good' [6:07]Assess Failure | This is how you assess failure and expose the flaws in your strategy [6:32]4 Steps | Tom lays out complete strategy to beat failure for the long-term game [7:17]Biological Experience | Understand your brain and learning to disrupt approach [9:58]Cognitive Behavioral Therapy | Tom explains the value of pattern interrupting [12:08]Reframing | Tom on how to reframe failed business venture entering job market [16:15]Hard Skills | Tom exposes why getting good at the hard things is necessary to win [17:14]Moving Forward | It takes doing what moves you toward your goal & reframing failure [22:21]3rd Door | Tom breaks down what it takes to find your path to the seemingly impossible [25:06]Belief in Yourself | How people's doubt for you is a gift when you're not good enough yet [35:03] QUOTES: “the very way that we bounce back from failure, is by looking exclusively at what we can do differently.” [5:44] “whenever a strategy yields a result, different than the desired result, then you know, this strategy is, by definition, wrong.” [6:38] “Yes, it's hard. Getting good at shit is hard, outperforming other people is hard. But if you want to win, you've got to do hard shit.” [17:58] “This is like one of the key insights of my life. You should only ever do and believe that which moves you towards your goal.” [22:21] “If you can add value to people, then you can build an ecosystem.” [23:36] “When we are young, we can become anything. But as we age, we become something specific. And there's a death in that.” [25:06] “when you've had a tremendous failure, to recognize that you've got to get so hard core that people would sooner believe that it's magic than that you just work that hard.” [30:02] “...failure is only permanent, if that's what you choose to believe. Reframe it, recognize you have power, recognize you have control over what you do, and recognize that if you leave people in awe [...] the only way to really have mind blowing success in life is to set the bar ridiculously high, and then surpass all expectations.” [33:20] “the greatest gift anyone can ever give you is doubt.” [35:03] “These people had not misidentified me.

So, no bullsh*t, what does it take to become a billionaire, or even a millionaire. The answer comes down to habits and mindset.Ultra-successful people think and move differently from everyone else. You may have heard Jim Rohn's quote, “successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.” This applies across the board. If billion dollar status is a goal, and being ultra wealthy and successful is high on your list of priorities, start today with your habits. Focus on the right things that create forward progress, ask the hard questions, and question everything.In this episode, 5 ultra-successful guests share what it takes and explain the inner workings and habits you can start to adopt and apply immediately. Dean Graziosi is an entrepreneur and investor that changed his life through real estate. Robin Sharma, former attorney turned leadership expert, has written books such as The 5 AM Club and The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari changed his life through spirituality. Ed Mylett is a peak performance expert and author of The Power of One More. Patrick Bet-David is the ultra-successful businessman from humble beginnings and author of Your Next Five Moves.

It is the invisible force that no one understands, and once they do understand it and get a hold of it their life can change.” Ed Mylett [51:10]“If you want a different life, an improved life, a growing life, and an increased life this version of you is inferior to get you to that place.” Ed Mylett [59:28]“One of the scariest things about life is a question.

Does being successful guarantee becoming rich? Obviously that requires you to define what success is for you and your journey. The funny twist in all of this is that being rich is so easily fantasized and yet the work it takes to become rich and successful is barely thought of.Jim Rohn said, “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.” As hard as that is to accept as truth, it is evident when you look at elite athletes, world-class performers, and the best of the best in any field.When you watch this, understand that Tom's drive is always fulfillment, meaning, and purpose. The work it takes to achieve his level of success is not easy nor is it for the faint of heart. It's not impossible, and it's not the only path forward, but it has proven to be majorly successful over and over again. The path to becoming rich and successful is going to require you to dig deep and it requires skills, grit, and determination for you to tap into a level of potential you never knew was possible.You can watch the full episodes included today here:Tom Bilyeu on The School of Greatness: https://youtu.be/DN6BP65jWhk Tom Bilyeu on Rich Roll:https://youtu.be/prlqWU54NME Tom Bilyeu on Ed Mylett: https://youtu.be/VjTGHnlX8fw Tom Bilyeu on Valuetainment: https://youtu.be/jSvTTh93dY0 SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction 0:000:12 | There Are No Excuses, Only Taking Action31:03 | Rich People Do These 8 Things47:37 | The Power of Stories49:50 | Reading List51:29 | Take Ownership54:20 | It's Not About the Money1:00:29 | Learn From Failure & Move Forward1:22:55 | Bonus: They Choose To Win & Not QuitQUOTES:“We're not judged by our intentions.

Are you ready to revolutionize the way you think about money, inflation and the impending recession?Chief Executive Money Nerd at Minority Mindset Companies from Punjab, India, Jaspreet Singh has been putting in the work to spread financial education and opportunity on YouTube for years. The goal of this episode is to get you to understand what money really is and give you the knowledge you need to change how you're using it in your day to day life.The majority of people will unfortunately continue to become poor and the harsh reality for many is that they won't even see what's happening in time if at all. We are dedicated to pulling people out of the matrix and helping them see that human potential is nearly limitless. That includes getting people to see the objective truth about the government's role in the financial system, who the Feds are, and how wealthy, financially educated people think and use money differently from poor, financially uneducated people.Tom openly shares his example of how you can be a good entrepreneur and bad investor from not asking the right questions. You can start turning the tables and making better decisions to not just prepare for a potential recession, but to also start building real wealth. It's all mindset, it's a growth mindset and a minority mindset when you're willing to learn and understand who your teachers are.

A word of wisdom he shares that was passed on to him is, “he who has cash in a recession is king.” The bottom line Raoul is openly sharing is that income and the ability to advance on opportunities makes all the difference.“Buy when there's blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own.” - Nathan RothschildHaving a solid work ethic, a strong (and maybe unreasonably optimistic) belief, coupled with income and the knowledge to look for moments of extreme weakness to buy and make moves, without leverage, against opportunities can get you to the other side of this crisis potentially better off than when it all began.You get to decide what to focus on.

Of the few that rise to the top, even fewer will do so feeling fulfilled in their life. It takes much more than skills and relationships to be successful. It takes grit and determination to do the hard things. It requires you go through emotionally taxing, ego killing moments of failure, humility, and self-realization to become adaptable and become who you want to be.In this keynote, Tom reveals the hard facts of entrepreneurship and what it takes to be in the 1%. “If you're only good in the beginning you lack grit.” After watching this it's time for a hard self-talk and challenge to yourself. It's time for a no B.S. approach of what will it take to build yourself into the person you desire to be.

The external expectations involuntarily placed on you amount to pressure and loss of self-identity, values and beliefs. On the other hand, the internal expectations you willingly place on yourself can put you into a state of anxiety with doubts, disappointment and indecisiveness. So take a step back from yourself for a moment and consider the number of decisions you passively make everyday while living a less than fulfilling life. If you're not happy with where you are, how you live, what you do, the money you make (or don't make) and the success you wish for but never have, it comes down to indecisiveness and lack of action. Mel Robbins is an American attorney, best selling author, motivational speaker, and straight shooter. She's introduced two of the simplest tools anyone can use starting right now to go from autopilot to decision maker moving towards your dreams.“I hope you have a massive a-ha moment, but it's not going to mean shit if you don't take action and do something about it.” This is Mel's wish for you today. You can trick your brain to do what's important and beat the habit loops that keep sabotaging you everyday.It's time for you to stop fighting for your excuses. Stop arguing against the dreams you want and wish for, and start making the decisions for better results day by day, hour by hour, and second, by second.

Those are decisions.” [1:33]“If you're stuck that's the problem. The problem is you're in your head, you're thinking. That is the universal problem, and it all starts with the knowledge of what to do and then you hesitate and you think about whether or not you feel like doing it.” [10:29]“You have about a five second window in which you can move from idea to action before your brain kicks into full gear and sabotages any change in behavior.” [15:07]“Confidence is the ability to move from thought to action because when you're a confident person you believe enough in yourself and capabilities that you're willing to try.” [26:08]“People are making a fundamental mistake. You are withholding the very support, empowerment, and celebration that you need to change, and to do the hard work, and to face the things that you're scared of, and that's why you're not changing.” [33:07]“The thing about jealousy is that it's just your inspiration that's blocked.

Obviously, the answer can only be personal to your individual preferences, values, and beliefs, but are you consciously deciding the quality of your life?Ryan Holiday is a best-selling author times 10, media strategist, influential speaker, and bookstore owner. He's best known for his writings on ancient stoic philosophy and its application for everyday life. The New York Times credited Ryan for the increasing popularity of stoicism.In this discussion, Ryan shares his thoughts and lessons learned about how he came to see what living a good life is for him. Questioning the things you give your time and energy over is the beginning for any of us that want to unpack what we're doing, who we're doing it for, and how it adds value with meaning to us. It's not enough to be a human doing any and everything without intention and clarity. Ryan points out that it's better to learn and practice what it is to just be a human “being.”If the day to day mindless actions of work, preparing dinner, and stressing over getting more clients to increase your revenue is part of your reality, then taking this time to thing through what the right goal is for your to focus on and what you want out of life may be the most important moment in your life thus far.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Ryan Holiday0:25 | How to Live A Good Life10:35 | Choosing The Right Goal 15:35 | What You Want Is What You Value21:42 | Time Between Stimulus and Response28:20 | Using Feedback Effectively34:26 | Check Your Ego for Success43:03 | Get Out of Your Way46:13 | Defining Success for RyanQUOTES:“We seem to have a limitless capacity to steal time from ourselves.” [2:49]“We protect our physical space much more than we protect our time, even though physical space can be regained and time can never be regained.” [3:15]“If you think that action is the end all be all, you end up doing action for the sake of doing action, [...] sometimes you're just supposed to just be.” [4:24]“It's this balance. Once you've arrived, the thing that got you there is now in some ways your worst enemy.” [8:18]“Where ego comes in is like we've got the things that impress other people, and then the real meaningful impact that we're trying to have.” [12:12]“What do people do with their money? They buy freedom, but oftentimes, they give up freedom to get money. [17:47]“It's about sort of cultivating an awareness, and a process of continual reflection on the data that your life is creating all the time.” [23:39]“You're not trying to get to perfection right now. You're just trying to get a little bit better than you were yesterday or an hour ago.” [25:16]“If you're trying to be everything for everyone, and you read feedback, you're just going to get more lost.” [31:45]“If I'm going to use my emotions, I want to be calm internally, but projecting the emotional response that's going to be effective in that situation, but I don't want to be jerked around by those emotions unconsciously.” [40:30]"We have a limitless capacity to steal time from ourselves."

If you search for tips on how to age gracefully, you get tips for how to be more mindful, be more forgiving, stay curious, keep learning, and more. You'll find a few tips around staying physically active, but you don't see a lot of advice (if any) on building muscle, getting in the gym, hitting the weights, and putting your body under stress.Dr. Gabrielle Lyon began her 20+ year career in geriatric medicine and palliative care. In her observations and studies on people in declining physical and mental health she became passionately aware of the missed opportunity in the medical community. Chronic diseases commonly associated with aging such as Alzheimers, cardiac disease, and diabetes, were being studied without addressing the underlying source that's contributing to the problems, deteriorating skeletal muscle.By the end of this episode, if you're not convinced on the power of muscle building you may want to rewatch. Whether you are male or female, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, or older, everyone needs to be invested in building muscle tissue to age gracefully and have a better quality of life. Healthy aging isn't just about maintaining mental cognition with a failing body, it's about having quality interactions and the physical ability to stand, walk, and travel without the fear of falling or being dependent on everyone for everything.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Gabrielle Lyon0:14 | Focus on Resistance Training13:06 | The 1st Meal of the Day Right19:26 | Muscle-Centric Protection to Aging34:17 | How to Reverse Aging58:02 | Reduce the Fat Storage1:08:41 | Build Muscle & Don't Lose ItQUOTES:“If you eat food that is subthreshold to that 2.5g of leucine you will be skinny fat…” [2:42]“The wider the waistline the lower the brain volume.” [23:19]“Lifestyle, choices midlife, having access to the right information changes the trajectory of aging.” [23:41]“Muscle is a nutrient sensing organ.” [34:26]“In the literature high quality protein is defined by amino acid content. It's not a negotiable nebulous concept; these are hard fast biological numbers.” [36:47]“When we're talking about the general population, typically people don't have a good solid foundational muscular base.” [43:33]“Everybody's focused on adiposity, everybody's focusing on insulin resistance, and if you care about root causes you have to care about skeletal muscle.” [45:22]“You have to train hard, [...] you have to get the stress in. The body thrives under stress, [...] your body requires physical stress.” [56:34]“When we are older, 30s, 40s, we are now no longer driven by hormones. We are now driven by dietary sensing mechanisms.” [57:27]“You have to get the foundational piece right up front, and that is high quality training is a non-negotiable, and number two, high quality proteins.” [57:50]“If you want to survive, the more muscle you have the more likely you'll survive.” [1:05:53]“Obesity, diabetes, Alzheimers, cardiovascular disease, these are pathologies.

It's not getting you or anyone closer to the results you really desire, and it almost makes the results you want a bit unclear and confusing.Sal DiStefano is no newcomer to the fitness scene. By the age of 19 he was already general manager at a local gym. Unfortunately for him, but lucky for you and all of his clients since, he had a health scare of his own from an autoimmune disorder which resulted in him losing 15 pounds of muscle! Sal refocused and started learning more about gut health, hormone health and how to prioritize health over appearance.His book, The Resistance Training Revolution, breaks down fitness misconceptions that social media and bad diet fads are flooding you with.

You are welcome to explore and learn with us as we continue to grow: https://web3u.impacttheory.com/ If the allure of social media is connection, then the allure of the metaverse will be social experiences in a virtual world like never seen before. It's likely you've heard that a confused mind says, no and in this very special episode Mark Zuckerberg joins Tom to share his thoughts around what the metaverse can potentially do for social connection and community. The unchartered territory of building a metaverse economy leaves the door wide open to what Mark calls an immersive internet that will change gaming and how and where you are able to work. Building technology in a space that hasn't been created is no easy feat, yet Mark Zuckerberg, who needs no introduction, has been doing this for nearly two decades.Even if you've yet to explore metaverse, virtual reality, and NFTs, Mark's insights to how he's been building one of the largest companies on the planet is a business class unto itself. This is also a great look into the possible use cases and the direction this innovative technology will grow within the next several years.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Mark Zuckerberg1:22 | Making the Metaverse Reality11:00 | Defining the Immersive Internet15:26 | Roadmap for Meta22:52 | NFT Altered Experiences37:44 | A.I. in Metaverse / 392442:44 | Metaverse Economy and Business Models44:56 | Meta's Approach to Decentralization49:43 | Rebranding Facebook57:30 | Confident Even With PushbackMeta NFT announcement at a glance:Starting this week we'll begin testing Digital Collectibles on Instagram, which will allow a small group of U.S. creators and collectors to share NFTs on Instagram that they have created or bought. In the future, we will also roll out Digital Collectibles on Facebook and allow people to display and share their digital collectibles as AR stickers in Instagram Stories, bringing the benefits of this technology to even more creators and collectors. Details on how digital collectibles will work:Creators and collectors in this test group will be able to post NFTs that they created or own on Instagram by linking third-party digital wallets in-app. NFTs displayed on the app will receive a special ‘shimmer' visual treatment and both the creator and owner of the NFT will be attributed for the content.Starting at launch, the blockchains that are supported include Ethereum and Polygon, with Flow and Solana coming soon.The third-party wallets compatible for use at launch will include Rainbow, MetaMask, and Trust Wallet, with Coinbase and Dapper coming soon.There will be no fees associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible on Instagram. Soon, we will roll out digital collectibles on Facebook, and will also soon allow people to display and share their digital collectibles as AR stickers in Instagram Stories, bringing the benefits of this technology to even more creators and collectors.Mark on NFTs as a form of expression:"I think our whole thrust as a company is around helping people connect and communicate. Part of communication is your exchanging information, but a lot of it is signaling and expression and kind of saying something about yourself and trying to find like-minded people and form communities and express your values… And I think that there's no reason to think that will be any different in digital spaces. That's a lot of what early social networks started off as, and I think that they've become more sophisticated in terms of helping people express and share and kind of project the expression that they want. But when I think about NFTs in the metaverse, I think if you're spending a lot of time [in the metaverse] – whether it's working in VR if a fair amount of your meetings are happening in virtual reality in the metaverse. Or, as a hologram sitting there with someone, then you're going to care about what you look [like] there. And, you're probably not going to want to wear the same thing every day, right? So you're probably going to have a collection of clothing and digital objects, just like you have clothing in the physical world. And you're going to want that clothing to be meaningful and express something about you. So you're not just gonna want it to be generic, like a lot of these early systems. What color shirt do you want? Which designer made it? Which creator made it? That's going to be meaningful. And I think that that needs a whole format for commerce. And I think NFTs are going to be a really important part of that."Follow Mark Zuckerberg:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/zuck Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/zuck/

When you read this book, Lisa will teach you 10 No-BS Life Lessons to become the hero of your own life and take MASSIVE bold action to achieve your potential!Dr. Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist who continues educating audiences about brain development, brain plasticity and the inner workings of dopamine. He's showing people how to hack their behaviors and rewire their thinking for optimal performance and outcomes.Consider this episode a masterclass on all things dopamine. Dr. Huberman takes the complication out of neuroscience and simplifies how dopamine is tied to motivation, craving, and even perception of time. One of the many takeaways in the episode is that idea that small incremental steps towards a bigger outcome and purpose is worth celebrating if you want to get the benefit of dopamine rewards. Dopamine isn't necessarily about huge wins and achieving big goals. It's about the pursuit and craving of those goals. It's about enjoying the journey and not just focusing on the destination or result. The information Dr. Huberman is unpacking here is going to be significant to anyone in pursuit of a highly successful and meaningful life.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Andrew Huberman0:28 | Spike Dopamine for Motivation25:09 | Break Addiction to Negative Thoughts 44:06 | Master Focus, Reduce Overindulging1:10:46 | Pursue Challenge, Reward Small Wins 1:36:37 | The Power of DopamineQUOTES:“Celebrating the win more than the pursuit, it actually sets you up for failure in the future.” [1:48]“Dopamine itself is not the reward, it's the build up to the reward. And the reward has more of a kind of opioid bliss like property” [15:41]“Pursue rewards, but understand that the pursuit is actually the reward. If you want to have repeated wins.” [16:13]“Pleasure experienced without prior requirements for pursuit is terrible for us.” [17:22]“Agitation and stress were designed to get us up and move us, and when we try and fight that too much, and we try and quiet that stress, that actually can be problematic.” [37:11]“If you have negative thoughts, just remember, I can also introduce positive thoughts the same way I can control running around the block. Positive thoughts are the equivalent of forward physical action.” [42:16]“All the segments of your life are noted by peaks in dopamine, or the way that you happen to conceptualize dopamine.” [45:33]“When people's dopamine is low, they tend to overestimate, okay, okay. And when people's dopamine is high, they tend to underestimate time.” [47:47]“Dopamine is a very misunderstood molecule, it's often talked about only in the context of reward, [...] what's often not discussed is that dopamine is secreted in route to rewards...” [1:22:25]“The molecule dopamine when secreted in the brain, makes us pursue things, build things, create things, makes us want new things that we don't currently already have.” [1:42:45]Follow Andrew Huberman:Website: https://hubermanlab.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/andrewhubermanlab Twitter: https://twitter.com/hubermanlab Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab Podcast: https://hubermanlab.com/

He and his team at Drug Science have brought together leading drug experts from many different clinical backgrounds, with the goal of providing clear, evidence-based information about how a wide range of drugs - from CBD to PCP - impact the human system.In his latest book, Cannabis (seeing through the smoke): The New Science of Cannabis and Your Health, Dr. Nutt gives an in-depth look into one of the most commonly used recreational psychedelics on the planet: cannabis.In today's episode, we discuss David's findings on how cannabis affects different systems in the brain, how it differs from other classes of drugs, what the future of drug research looks like, and much much more!SHOW NOTES:00:00 | How Cannabis Works03:54 | How Will I Respond to Cannabis?09:21 | Benefits of Cannabis22:09 | Psychedelics & Your Brain32:27 | Are Drugs Safe?38:51 | The Future of CannabisQUOTES:“You've got to remember - cannabis can affect pretty much every other neurotransmitter system in the brain.” [09:13]“Medical cannabis is going to be the big revolution over the next 20 years, if we use it properly.” [13:45]“Normally, the visual system is just embedded in the visual system. But under psychedelics, because you break down the default mode network, the visual system can then connect everywhere in the brain.” [28:10]“It needs to be tested. We need to be doing lots of studies, but we're not because it's a plant product and doesn't fit into the current model of pharmaceutical drug development.” [41:24]Follow Dr. David Nutt:Website: https://www.drugscience.org.uk Twitter: https://twitter.com/profdavidnutt Order your copy of Cannabis (seeing through the smoke): https://amzn.to/3O9sc0P

Likewise, it might be easy to assume that the only way to do so is through sophisticated AI algorithms and data science.Incredibly, Jane McGonigal and her colleagues at Institute for the Future have been able to predict several of today's most disruptive trends as much as ten years in advance.Through her innovative use of alternate reality games, hyper-specific journaling techniques, and something called “future backcasting”, Jane continues to not only lay out seemingly impossible future scenarios, but also help prepare people to be proactive in building the future they want to see.If you like what you see in today's episode, then I highly encourage you to check out Jane's latest book, Imaginable: How to See the Future Coming and Feel Ready for Anything―Even Things That Seem Impossible TodayOrder your copy by clicking here: https://amzn.to/3JwImO2 SHOW NOTES:00:00 | Introduction01:40 | A New Approach to Futurism13:23 | The Psychology of Predicting the Future22:50 | Rehearsing Catastrophes32:56 | How to Practice for the Future38:18 | Crypto, Government, and Privacy48:31 | Future Backcasting53:54 | The Future of Web3 GamingQUOTES:“The brain normally assumes things will continue as they are. But what that means is it can be very hard to wake up and realize this thing that used to be true is no longer true, or this assumption I had is no longer helpful.” [09:54]“We do try to have this balance of positive and shadow imagination, because really, any future is going to have complications, but also perhaps unexpected benefits where people use it as an opportunity to create positive change.” [15:31]“To start your process of having to adapt or deal with a crisis or disruption from a state of confidence and clarity, rather than anxiety, confusion, feeling helpless - it really changes the way that you emotionally experience things that can create a lot of suffering.” [26:53]“Try to backcast all the way to as far as what could you do in the next 24 hours to make this future more likely. Just force yourself to roll up your sleeves and do something to start trying to have an impact on this future.” [51:51]Follow Jane McGonigal:Website: https://janemcgonigal.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/avantgame LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/3jpyRpj Urgent Optimists: https://urgentoptimists.org/ Order your copy of Imaginable: https://amzn.to/3JwImO2

    When you're a high performer and someone on a mission to reach the highest levels of success, you have to set the bar ridiculously high and get after it. This becomes problematic for people when they've set unrealistic expectations and goals so high they start experiencing a sense of shame and failure. Can you set ridiculously high expectations and still be cool with imperfection? Tom reveals why it's so important for you to do and believe that which moves you towards your goals. When aiming for perfection hinders your performance and ability to execute, it's time to rethink your strategy. Being imperfect still allows you to achieve more than most ever will if you are willing to value the sincere pursuit of your goal over feeling good enough trying to avoid failure along the way.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction0:21 | Perfectionism Doesn't Serve You5:30 | Value the Sincere Pursuit 10:19 | Is It Perfection or High Standards?14:00 | How to Set Standards18:42 | Constructive Self-CriticismQUOTES:“Kicking yourself in the ass is super powerful, but my rule is, I never do anything that diminishes my sense of self.” [5:52]“Reach for the farthest star in the world, but don't value yourself for whether or not you achieve it. Value yourself for the sincere pursuit…” [7:11]“Success cannot be guaranteed, struggle can. You will struggle. I cannot guarantee that you will be successful, but the juice is never going to be the success. It's never going to be the accolades.” [8:16]“You have a hole inside of you that can only be filled with progress, meaning, and purpose. It can't be filled with accomplishment” [9:23]“The desire for perfectionism is really fear that you're not good enough in failure.” [11:12]“If the job gets done at eight units of energy, you're better off applying the extra two units of energy to something else.” [15:31]“Aim to have a perfect career, which is full of failure, embarrassment, and just rich with hard on skill. That's perfection we're chasing.” [18:22]“We have to understand there's tremendous power in the dark side, but that it's a corrosive power, and that if you use it too much it will destroy the only thing in life that actually matters” [19:30]Follow Tom Bilyeu:Website: https://impacttheory.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/TomBilyeu Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tombilyeu/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tombilyeu
