“We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out—and we have only just begun.”
For an Italian, time considerations will usually be subjected to human feelings. “Why are you so angry because I came at 9:30?” he asks his German colleague. “Because it says 9:00 in my diary,” says the German. “Then why don’t you write 9:30 and then we’ll both be happy?” is a logical Italian response. The business we have to do and our close relations are so important that it is irrelevant at what time we meet. The meeting is what counts. Germans and Swiss cannot swallow this, as it offends their sense of order, of tidiness, of planning.
Every single epic or terrible idea that you have ever had in your life, has never been your own.

For millions of years, our ancestors were a relatively egalitarian, promiscuous society. We would share mostly everything, from food, to shelter, to protection, to sex. We would share for the survival of the tribe.
The prices on Airbnb are super inflated. The hosts are typically trying to make a 200-500% Return on Investment. For every $100 they spend, they want $100-500 in profit. This is fine, if you want a place to stay for 1-3 days, but you can see why paying $1800 for a 1 bedroom apartment, in a 3rd world country can be REALLY OBVIOUSLY overpriced.
He has a funny video on youtube talking about his dating life. In it he talks about texting with a girl for a while, back and forth, and every time, she responds readily, and quickly. But when he asks her out on a date, she completely drops the conversation.
If you read ‘Salts, Fats and Sugars’, you understand that the food industry is only out to make as much money as possible. That involves feeding you as much junk as possible, and especially, get you addicted to that crap. Even if it’s ABSOLUTELY not healthy for you.
The news will tell you that the world is fucked up.
Wars not too far away, murders just down the street in our community, corporations screwing over the little guy, viruses and diseases infecting everyone around you, etc etc. Right now sounds like a pretty bad place and time.
Back in January of 2014, I decided it was time to start working on my product for Premium23.
The next 2 weeks consisted of 12-14 hour workdays.
The days consisted of information overload, long task lists, complicated process charts, and hours and hours of fixing the website and video editing.
It’s REALLY hard to find information about mindfulness and meditation that isn’t filled with pseudo-advice such as ‘align your spiritual energies’, ‘respect for the perpetual sacredness’ or some other hyper-spiritual nonsense. I’m not of the school of ‘yoga pants’ meditation, or reaching some kind of mystical, godly spiritual enlightenment.
I’ve traveled the world, and have cultivated many experiences. I can buy many different gadgets and things that might entertain me for a bit. But ultimately, none of these make me happy. What I found was you need to find and develop happiness from within.
While ‘The Mindful Athlete’ focused more on combining meditation with sports psychology, ‘The Champions Mind’ combines sports psychology, motivational stories from world-class athletes, and routines for becoming top-level in your game.
At the Affiliate World Asia conference there were hundreds of guys (and girls) who make thousands of dollars per day! But are they successful in other parts of their lives?
I dive deep into why you need to focus on these 4 pillars of success: health, wealth, love (relationships), and happiness.
Alright, so you probably already know that meditation is good for you, and you sometimes say ‘I should probably do it’, but you don’t get around to it. Whatever your excuses, you NEED to meditate. All of the science that has come out showing the benefits of meditation, just can’t be procrastinated on anymore.
A lot of really interesting stories about why the checklist is the difference between life and death… literally. The author is a surgeon who realized that having a checklist to avoid errors, saved lives, and prevented lawsuits (saving millions of dollars).
This is a planning book, that has a heavy emphasis on staying motivated through developing a vision. The concept involves dividing your 1-year goals, into 12-week segments instead. Most people procrastinate until the end of the year to accomplish big goals. Instead, we baby-step things into 12-week segments, with accountability after each week.
The author touches on the most powerful topic of all… how your own subconcious influences you on absolutely everything you do, how you look, how you feel, how you think, how you see, hear, perceive the world around you, and within yourself.
This book is fluffy like a cloud. It’s full of fluff content that could be condensed into a much smaller book. The author needed to fill 280+ pages, so this is what you get.
