The Next Mountain
"There is always another mountain to climb"
One of the most common questions I get at talks is what do you do after you've had "the adventure of a life time".
My answer is simple.
It was never the adventure of a lifetime.
It was a stepping stone.
There is always something beyond.
There is always another mountain to climb, an ocean to sail, a business to build, a mission to take on.
We are not designed to stand still.
We are designed to take on challenges. To struggle. To fail. To learn. To keep moving forwards.
What's your next mountain?
Tip: We all need a goal to be striving towards. It’s the struggle that we learn from and shapes our character.
In the Spotlight
And great to be one of the entrepreneurs featured in the guide published by the Supper Club - “The Exit Journey: Preparing for Scale, Sale, and Beyond” where founders share stories and insights on how they’ve built and sold their businesses.
Refuse to accept Mediocrity
This is perhaps one of the most powerful interviews I've watched in a long time.
David Goggins has gone to lengths virtually all of us would find unthinkable.
How he describes his mindset and approach is truly fascinating.
(strong language warning too)
Tip: Always be learning and find people who you can model and learn from.
Don’t Miss The Boat
Unless we said we were leaving on a boat on August 1st 2014, we would have found reasons to delay. And we'd still be living the same life we were before.
On Feb 11, 12 and 13 we will be sharing the ideas and strategies we used to create multiple successful ventures that created the money that we didn't have before.
If money stands in the way of your dreams, you need to be at this event.
Don't miss the boat.
Tip: Nothing ever happens without a deadline. What deadlines do you have in your world?
Be a Better Leader
Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint (and a touch of humour too)
