You’re either going to create your dream life, or you’re going to destroy yourself through self-loathing and resentment.

Bold statement, I know. But this is exactly what I’ve seen during ten years of being in the trenches of transformation.

And today’s guest is here to tell you why. His name is Charlie Gilkey and we had one of the best conversations all year on the Academy hosted by Tommy Baker, author of The 1% Rule and The Leap Of Your Life.

So, who’s Charlie Gilkey? Charlie is the founder of Productive Flourishing, a website that helps changemakers (creatives, leaders, and entrepreneurs) start finishing the stuff that matters. Productive Flourishing is routinely placed in the Top 50 websites for planning, productivity, creativity, and team development for creative folks.

His most recent book Start Finishing: How to Go from Idea to Done helps people get their best work out into the world by identifying what matters most and overcoming challenges that get in the way of finishing your most important projects.

Do not miss this episode, it will blow your mind on the creative process, honoring your "season", bringing your ideas to life and not missing out on some future "someday."

In 1990, while covering a story about homelessness for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Ted Jackson encountered a half-naked drug addict sleeping under a bridge.

After snapping a photo, Jackson woke the man. Pointing to the daily newspaper by his feet, the homeless stranger looked the photojournalist in the eye and said, “You ought to do a story about me.” When Ted asked why, he was stunned by the answer.

“Because, I’ve played in three Super Bowls.”

Whoa, what a story.

Today's Academy episode is about mastery of craft and embracing those "moments" in life where we know it's time to create something special. We discuss an incredible career, the creative process, how Ted Jackson came across the story of a lifetime —and so much more. We also discuss friendship, redemption and telling an emotional story unlike any other.

"Your craft is prepared, your mind is prepared, your heart is prepared and you're ready to do something with the magic moment." —Ted Jackson

"When a door opens and you see it —my job is to have the courage to walk through it." —Ted Jackson

Don't compare yourself to others, right? Well, actually —we are hard-wired to compare ourselves to others. It is embedded into our DNA and we can't "shut it off."

"You seem to push entrepreneurship hard —is that required for a fulfilling life?”

Uh, no...of course not.

But I  believe the tools, mindsets and strategies that make a great entrepreneur —those lead to a fulfilling life:

  • They lead to self-reliance.
  • They lead to creative solutions.
  • They lead to exponential thinking.

(And if you are a part of an organization —you become the Linchpin and those get paid and promoted fast.)

Even if you are working for someone else and are fulfilled —adopting an entrepreneurial mindset is non-negotiable.

Why?

Because no employer is ever loyal to one person —they are loyal to profit shareholders and their own self-interests.

And if we’ve learned anything from the COVID-19 crisis, it’s that:

We can’t rely on employers.
We can’t rely on the government.
We can’t rely on faux leaders to save us.

In Quick Hit #147 —I'll answer a question I receive on the regular —do you need to be an entrepreneur to live a rich, and fulfilling life?

Don’t forget the problems you’ve already solved in your life —that you’re now solving for others with your brand, product or service.

My latest guest took that to the extreme by adding 75 pounds to his frame as a ripped personal trainer, so he could relate to his clients issues stemming from being out of shape —lack of confidence, self-trust and physical ailments.

Enter Drew Manning —a New York Times Bestselling author of Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose, a expert in all things Keto and one of the biggest health and fitness personalities in the space.

Drew Manning has been featured on shows like Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, The View and many more. His experiment has since become a hit TV show, called Fit to Fat to Fit, airing on A&E and Lifetime. Drew also has a very successful podcast called The Fit2Fat2Fit Experience and  over 1.7 Million downloads.
