Episode 407: Go Against The Grain (Mastery vs. Overload)


On Today’s Show

Bestselling author Peter Voogd talks about what it means to go against the grain in order to attain the level of success you clearly envisioned, in the timeframe you have set for yourself. Too often we have the mindset that we have to nail it right away, and want success to happen overnight. Peter reminds us to be patient because greatness really does take time. Just stay focused daily, and instead of trying to compare yourself to others, go against the grain and figure out what differentiates you.

1 Simple Thing Action

Figure out what makes you unique and differentiate instead of comparing yourself to others. Write down 5-10 things that make you different than most people. Don’t have limitations. STOP overloading yourself with so much information, personal growth, and advice. Instead focus on the 1% that’s congruent to your clearly defined goals. Figure out what makes you different then focus on information you know is intentional and congruent to your end results.
