How you start each day matters.   No matter who you are, taking control of your thoughts and emotions during the first waking moments of your day can have a huge impact on your life.  It impacts you thoughts and emotions, which ultimately helps to improve your productivity, choices and happiness.  It’s huge. That’s why I am constantly looking for good things to put in my head first thing.  It’s a part of a very intentional routine (you can listen about that on the DMJ pocast here).  Today I want to share a cool video, podcast, etc. that you might enjoy as well. I am a fan of Ed Mylett.  If he sounds familar, I have mentioned him here before.  But recently Ed interviewed Dean Graziosi and it fired me up!  I highly recommend watching or listening to this interview…but here are a few takeaways that inspired me. You Don’t Have to Have It Figured Out:  Dean tells the story here of how he started his infomercial business.  He set up the camera crew and was so nervous he had them come back the next day.  He didn’t know how to edit the piece and then he didn’t have any idea on how to get it on the air.  He didn’t have it figured out.  He figured it out on the way.  You can too. Pay the Success Tax:  What if your struggles were just part of a “tax” you had to pay to show you were willing to put in the work?  Dean talks about the idea that these setbacks are a part of every journey and how you can change your mindset about them.  Powerful. Create Bigger Problems:  This was probably my favorite concept in here.  Ed and Dean discuss that most people have small problems.  Yet the stress in your life is still there.  They assert that the stress in big problems and small problems are the same.  If you want bigger success, you need to strive for bigger problems.  This was an eye opener for me.   These are just 3 takeaways.  If you want to be inspired, or start your day off right, I encourage you to spend the time on this piece of content today!  Enjoy! One way to fill your brain with good each day is to subscribe to our VIP list!  We send out the daily content from this site once a week…then you can catch up when you want!  Sign up here!
