Welcome to another edition of Quick Hit Fridays from the Resist Average Academy!

In this episode, I discuss how to take your grand vision and how that dictates what you do tomorrow morning. This is a big deal I see with people who always set large visions, yet never wind up doing much. I believe both parts are crucial to growth: the big vision, but also having the framework for dictating your behaviors right now.

  • What is your daily vision?
  • Complete your morning routine.
  • What are your Key 3 or 4 priorities?

The purpose of the Quick Hit Episodes is to give you a 4-8 minute nugget of wisdom, inspirational, a lesson and combine it with a practical action step so you can finish your weaken absolute fire!

I understand not everyone has 45-60 minutes to listen to every full-length episode and will be hitting all kinds of new topics as well as taking feedback from you, my loyal listener on what to include during the next Quick Hit.

The latest Academy episode features Kevin Stimpson. Kevin is the Founder of Strive & Grind, a lifestyle brand that empowers the dreamers and go-getters to unleash their inner greatness. 

He is very passionate about entrepreneurship and works to educate, motivate, and inspire the new generation of entrepreneurs to create lifestyles full of experiences and purpose.

I was intrigued by Kevin’s message with his authenticity, consistency, and ability to create content that makes sense for anyone -- whether you’re an entrepreneur, working for someone else or anything in between. 

During this episode we discuss the value of being different, how to stand out in a crowded marketplace, falling in love with the process, developing unbreakable beliefs, Kevin's worst entrepreneurial moments, going "all in" and the #1 dream killer of most visionaries and so much more.

I’d like to thank the brilliant team at Athletic Greens for supporting the mission of the show and offering us the highest quality nutritional insurance on the market, in an easy to take, all-in-one packet. Grab your special bonus as an Academy listener right here!

On the latest Academy episode, it is my honor and pleasure to welcome Howard Falco, a peak performance coach, mindfulness expert and spiritual teacher. 

He is the author of two powerful books on human understanding and potential, I AM: The Power of Discovering Who You Really Are and Time in A Bottle: Mastering the Experience of Life.

When I first moved to Scottsdale, Arizona on a whim, I walked into a bookstore and played a game in which I grab the first one I am guided towards. In this case, I opened up I AM and the page mentioned Howard’s journey to Arizona -- that’s when I knew I had to not only read and buy the book but pull all the messages inside of it.

In this special in-studio session, we go deep into:

  • The power of embracing our potential
  • What separates the great from the good
  • The journey from a finance professional to spiritual teacher
  • Answering two of life’s deepest questions
  • Having an open mind and remaining curious
  • The feeling that “nothing was ever enough”
  • How we already have our image of perfection
  • The power of asking questions that expand
  • Why intention opens the floodgates of life
  • The worthiness of every single person
  • The greatest power in any moment or I Am
  • How to collapse time in life and accept where you are

Please tag Howard and me with your biggest lesson, this is one you may want to listen to over and over again!
