The latest Resist Average Academy episode features mentor, Improv philosopher, speaker, entrepreneur and martial artist — Jesse Elder.

Jesse’s lifelong experience of learning, hacking reality, creating powerful belief systems and then turning those into results will no doubt fire you up — and he deeply believes anything you and I want is available to us if we’re willing to step into a powerful commitment and see reality a new way.

Known for running his business from his iPhone and using Facebook broadcasts as well as his popular “Mind Vitamin” videos, I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Jesse’s teaching firsthand.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Realizing one’s power of co-creation
  • Why the words we use code our reality
  • What we focus on expands and grows
  • Strategic ignorance as a superpower
  • Why pain is a gift for presence
  • How we stop ourselves from creating what we want
  • The power of de-mystifying money and goals
  • Why we’re all chasing feelings in life
  • Releasing emotional energy and power from money
  • Why the world is changing faster than we can notice
  • Understanding multiple currencies of value exchange
  • Why people repel money from their experience
  • The immense value of betting on one self
  • The four pillars of true, intense commitment

On this latest Academy Quick Hit episode, I invite you to delete and get rid of the word and mindset around "someday."

Let's face it: 

Seeing the world this way is a surefire way to never achieve your goals, and set them off to a far, far away place that never actually happens.

What it does it simple: it lets you off the hook.

However, you and I know that nothing is guaranteed in this experience, and it's only a matter of time before we realize it.

In this short episode, I'll inspire and challenge you to take your someday dreams and get started on them today.

Welcome to another 7 Minute Book Review Wednesdays from the Resist Average Academy! Every Wednesday, we will be featuring a Book review where we'll deep dive and extract the biggest lessons from some of the top books in the game.

Remember, the knowledge and wisdom you are exposed to are one of the biggest factors for both your success and fulfillment in life. Additionally, I'll be sharing my rating of the book (1-10) as well as 3 big lessons and one big practical action step I've taken (and you can as well) with the new material.

We'll start out with recent books I've gone deep into, and then start to explore some of my essential texts of all time.

Today’s episode is about one of the simplest, yet powerful books I was blessed to receive many years back called The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch.

Randy was diagnosed with terminal cancer and had an opportunity to create a lecture called “The Last Lecture” which turned into a book, full of wisdom and what really matters in life.
