Shiny business syndrome is a momentum killer —the belief that the ‘next’ business, idea or creative project is the “one” destined to be a success and you should quit what you’re doing.

Here’s how this works:

You’ve committed to one thing but along the way —you get an idea:

This idea seems better.
This idea seems easier.
This idea seems exciting.

But the question we must all ask is:

Is this chasing another ‘high’ of starting —a convenient distraction from the main path?

In this Quick Hit, I'll share why chasing something new can be a form of distraction —and how to ensure you don't fall into this trap along the way to achieving your goals.

MASTERCLASS: MAKE 2020 THE YEAR EVERYTHING CHANGED

Success equals peace, right? For many people who are achievers —the more success they create, the less peace they have:

The busier they are.
The harder they work.
The more they say “yes.”

And because we often don’t take time to define success on out terms —we can chase someone else’s definition.

This is where the latest Academy guest, the one and only Sheri Riley —who comes in to drop the wisdom you need on your way to your version of success.

Sheri Riley is a wife, mother, daughter, and entrepreneur and we all know this is not easy, but she's figure out how to make it simple. Her 9 Principles of Exponential Living are the guide for high achievers to integrate their personal desires into their life without detriment to their professional achievement.

Prior to serving as an Empowerment Speaker and Life Strategist, she spent over 20 years creating innovative marketing strategies for Usher, TLC, Toni Braxton, Converse, Coca Cola, BMW, NBA, and TNT. 

In this episode, Sheri Riley and I dive into how to:

  • Define success on your terms.
  • Release the myth of purpose.
  • Manage the vulnerability of growth.
  • Access peace even inside of chaos.
  • Pivot and transition in life and business.

...and so much more in a deep  exponential conversation designed to help elevate and empower.

We have donated to Silence The Shame for this episode, an organization that helps support mental wellbeing.

What does it mean to live a life of virtue, principles —of a code?

During these times of uncertainty, it can be easy to fall into the abyss of paralysis analysis and misinformation when we have no backbone.

This backbone is having a life philosophy, knowing what we stand for, what matters and how we want to live.

Enter the latest Academy guest, a modern-day warrior and a sought-out coach in the UFC —Firas Zahabi. Firas Zahabi is a mixed martial arts (MMA) and grappling coach as well as a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under John Danaher, being most known for his work as the leader of the TriStar Gym in Montreal, Québec, Canada. Among Zahabi’s most accomplished MMA students are athletes such as George Saint Piere, Miguel Torres, Denis Kang, and Rory McDonald.

In this episode, you’re going to discover how to live a life of virtue, of alignment, of success from the inside out, and the philosophy of wisdom to examine your truths and create a code you can work off from.

Freedom —it's the endgame, right? It's why we seek goals, chase ambition and do the habits and rituals every single day.

But what if there was a way to experience tomorrow's freedom now? What if there was a way to release the burdens of the past and get to know ourselves deeply?

There is —and it's found in the practice of journaling. However, most of us are never "taught" some key principles to journal effectively and to organize our thoughts for clarity. Enter the latest Academy guest, Ryder Carroll.

Ryder Carroll is a digital product designer and inventor of the Bullet Journal method living in Brooklyn NY. He's had the privilege of working with companies like Adidas, American Express, Cisco, IBM, Macy's, and HP.

He's the creator of The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future which we dive into in this episode.

The moment you put resources towards your dream, vision and future self —you're writing yourself a check.

When you invest in your growth and development, you send the world a message:

  • You are ready.
  • You are worthy.
  • You are committed.

In this episode, I'm going to share the reasons why most people are afraid of investing in themselves —and it has very little to do with money and almost everything to do with belief, self-trust and faith.
