Fire, desire, passion and purpose.

What are these things and how can we harness them in our lives —and what gets in the way?

Today I bring on someone who takes the unconventional path in everything he does, Jesse Itzler. Jesse is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Living with a Seal, cofounded Marquis Jet, the world's largest private jet card company which he and his partner sold to Berkshire Hathaway/NetJets. 

He's an undeniable entrepreneur and visionary who is full of life, fun and passion. And in this episode —he challenged me by asking if I truly understood what fire and desire is.

And I loved it :)

During this riveting conversation, you’ll discover:

  • How to live outside the typical rules of life
  • The power of differentiation in life and business
  • Why results are about daring to think differently
  • Why routines can be amazing or keep us stuck
  • How to get over the fear of being embarrassed
  • The power of being ourselves in life and business
  • How to negotiate with fear and use it as power
  • How to grow your baseline of grit and persistence
  • Breaking down the misconceptions of purpose
  • How to find a cause or calling worthy of fighting
  • The power of being the underdog in business
  • How to create fire and urgency to fuel change
  • Why most people negotiate their goals down
  • Releasing other people’s expectations for you
  • How Jesse hit the NYT Bestseller after a year

“Real innovation and change happens when you step outside of the box.” - Jesse Itzler

“If you want to accomplish something big, you have to have fire.” - Jesse Itzler

“You have to have an undeniable, unwavering passion to fuel your goal.” - Jesse Itzler

Billionaires. What really separates them from you and I? Today I’ll have you consider it has very little to do with talent, skill or experience.

Sure, those matter. But the number one difference between us and billionaires is one thing: how we think, and look at problems in our lives and the marketplace.

The latest Academy episode features entrepreneur and philanthropist —Naveen Jain. Naveen is driven to solve the world’s biggest challenges through innovation. He’s the founder of several successful companies including Moon Express, Viome, Bluedot, TalentWise, Intelius, and many more.

He’s someone committed to changing the world, and radically shifting the way we experience our planet on a daily basis.

During this riveting conversation, you’ll discover:

  • Why we all need to harness moonshot thinking
  • How to dream bigger and bolder in life and business
  • Why individuals are the next superpowers
  • How talent is now globalized and why it matters
  • Why solving problems is all about thinking differently
  • Using our imagination to solve complex problems
  • How to focus on possibility instead of impossibility
  • The difference between linear and exponential thinking
  • Why being an expert can be a massive roadblock
  • How to challenge and disrupt an industry
  • Why Naveen is choosing to make illness optional
  • Why the microbiome is where disease happens
  • If people don’t call you crazy, you’re playing small
  • Why being an entrepreneur means burning Plan B

“Moonshot thinking is about dreaming the world you want to live in and then creating it.” - Naveen Jain

“Asking the right set of questions allows you to solve the right problems.” - Naveen Jain

“What we can’t imagine, we can’t achieve.” - Naveen Jain

The greatest risk of all is not taking one.

Although we tend to think we're in control and we can fall prey to being sold the safe path —risk is about one thing and one thing only:

Opportunity cost.

During today's Quick Hit, I'm going to explore the real cost of not chasing your dreams.

Transformation.

One of my favorite words in the world, because it means one thing and one thing only:

Radical change that improves our lives.

But how do we get there? How do we cultivate faith and trust when nothing seems to be working? What are the core essentials to enduring transformations?

That's exactly why I brought on some of the best in the business, Chris and Heidi Powell.

This power couple is full of heart, energy and enthusiasm and have taken the fitness and coaching world by storm.

In this fun, deep and engaging conversation —you'll discover:

  • Chris and Heidi's definition of success
  • Why impact will always matter over income
  • The power of hitting rock bottom for change

"Success is knowing the people in my life feel happy, appreciated and taken care of, including me." - Heidi Powell

Visualization.

You've heard of this by now, right?

Visualize your success, your dreams and your vision —and they'll come true.

And while this is a powerful technique, today I bring a much more powerful tool in regards to making committed decisions.

Because so often, people are waiting, hoping, praying and wishing.

The tool I use is Reverse Visualization —amplifying the cost and pain of not making a decision today.
