My Key Points
- Author and journalist Steven Kotler, defines greatness as “waking up every day and saying Okay. Today I’m going to move mountains.”
- Write down your goal. Print it. Frame it. Hang it somewhere you will see it. Every day.
- Writing down your goal is a powerful thing. Declaring your vision and putting a date on it, as though it will happen is even more powerful..
- Failure is simply feedback. It’s not that you are bad or not good enough or incapable. Failure (or feedback) gives you the opportunity to look at what’s not working and figure out how to make it work.
- No one is going to hand me success. I must go out and get it myself. That’s why I’m here. To dominate. To conquer. Both the world and myself.
- Hustle in the pursuit of greatness.
- Your vision is what makes you want to get out of bed.
- Smile in every conversation.
- Focus on gratitude, even if you do not feel grateful, you can always ask yourself, “What could I be grateful for?”
- What we do every day matters more than what we do once in a while.Focus on actions, not outcomes. Things often get harder before they get easier.
