Mental Toughness in 60 Seconds

Mental Toughness means a lot of things to a lot of people, but the essence of being mentally tough means controlling your emotions, especially under pressure. Over my years of training professional athletes, Navy SEALs, Olympic Champions, and over a hundred thousand sales people in many of the world’s largest companies, there’s one technique that trumps them all. There are short and long play psychological strategies. This is a short play strategy that will catapult your level of emotional control in 60 seconds or less.

Billionaires Advice After Losing My Fortune

There’s an old saying among the rich: “it’s easier to live without money if you’ve never had it.” I think that’s true. Financial independence makes for a cushy, comfortable life, and it’s not easy to re-enter the rat race. No matter, that’s what I was forced to do many years ago after earning a small fortune, and I was disheartened and disappointed in myself. After all, I had interviewed hundreds of the world’s wealthiest self-made millionaires and billionaires, and I was the beneficiary of their collective financial wisdom. I employed it and it worked, but after a couple of poor judgement

Where My Billionaire Clients Are Investing Their Money

After decades of interviewing over 1,300 of the world’s wealthiest people, I’ve heard every type of investing strategy you can imagine. Everyone seems to have their own system, and few agree on everything. That said, we’re in a special time in history, where a single technology is impacting nearly every sector, and many experts agree that it’s still in its infancy. I’ve spent the past several months talking to dozens of my wealthiest clients and contacts around the world, and in my 39 years of interviews, I’ve never heard such consensus on an investment strategy. This video is a quick glimpse

Jack Welch on Mentally Tough Leadership

Years ago I was speaking at a coporate convention at Caesers Palace in Las Vegas with the late, great Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric. I was in the process of doing turnarounds for Johnson & Johnson with our mental toughness process, and I asked him for advice while we were backstage in the green room. After all, in those days Welch was regarded by many on Wall Street as the greatest turnaround specialist in corporate America. In this video, I share the simple, yet powerful advice he gave that I used over the next 20+ years. #mentaltoughness #personaldevelopment #jackwelch

Mental Toughness on Overcoming Jealousy

Jealousy is the thief of happiness. Experiencing strong negative emotions toward someone else for what they have (and you’re missing) is a formula for misery, and yet we all allow it to grab us from time-to-time. Luckily, there’s a simple psychological hack known as “compersion”, which has the power to drastically reduce and even eliminate the strongest feelings of jealousy.

Her e-book, “Compersion: Meditations on Using Jealously as a Path to Unconditional Love” is the best book I’ve
