Your Soul Food Friday for May 30th 2014: Risk, Sacrifice, Transformation, Gratitude, Extreme Jobs, and Climbing YOUR Everest!

Happy Soul Food Friday!

What a Week for me, How was it for YOU?

No matter how wild the ride, it couldn’t compare to this…

Sometimes You have to be up Really High to Realize how Small You are…

Austrian skydiver and daredevil Felix Baumgartner jumped from 128,100 feet above the Earth.

Seven GoPro cameras recorded the jump and GoPro just released this incredible footage, showing from a new perspective of what it was like from Baumgartner’s point of view.

Felix Baumgartner became the first skydiver ever to go faster than the speed of sound!

Hold your breath and watch this, also watch the odometer as the speed increases and then decreases as he enters the earth’s atmosphere.


Monday brought Memorial Day with Blessings of Freedom:

Memorial Day allows us to honor those veterans who served our great nation, and recognize and thank our veterans and their families for the tremendous sacrifices they have made to defend the country.  It is also a day of prayer for those service members who continue to serve in far reaching areas of the globe to help protect and preserve the rights and protections that form the foundation of the individual freedoms we enjoy.


Tues & Wed brought Transformation through Collaboration:

Thanks to all that helped create, curate, connect and celebrate purpose-driven leaders! We had a sold out event with a priceless experience thanks to a LOT of help from my friends.

It was also picked up as a national story…


Thursday brought Principles of Success- Sound Advice from another Conference:

A member of our team attended a webinar on the principles of success and I found this insights illuminating:

  • Take 100% Responsibility For Your Life & Your Results
  • E + R = O (Events + Response = Outcome)
  • Be Clear Why You’re Where You Are
  • Decide What You Want
  • Use the Power of Visualization
  • Experience the Fear and Take Action Anyway
  • Ask! Ask! Ask! If you have questions

Make Some day TODAY!

Cultivate the focus, persistence and grit that will get You to Your personal Everest:
If you have 27 minutes you might enjoy this video below from Robin Sharma
If you don’t take 2 minutes and get the highlights…

Implicit theory underpins our world view and self-identity

Set Mastery goals not Ego goals– Autonomy, Mastery & Purpose
(not fame fortune and applause but getting better goals)
Cultivate the focus, persistence and grit that will get you to your personal Everest

Do Hard Things
Lean into your fear and Commit to the Mountain
“The seduction of safety is often more dangerous than the perception of Danger”

Your limits are liars and your fears are thieves. Do NOT trust them! 
So many of us are caught by the things we are running from…

Get to you know your Personal Story, then rewire it and rescript it
Goal contagion- We literally model the goals of the people we spend most of our time with

Every Visionary was first Ridiculed before they were ever Revered
Your perception of your potential will determine how much of your potential you live
Write your ending first, then live it every day -as every day is your life in miniature
Every day is a platform to get you closer to where you want to be

Inspiration drives Optimal Performance
You need to be inspired to achieve Amazing things (and have high levels of execution intelligence)
Keep your inspiration high. Make the time to be around art. Go to beautiful places. Your environments are unbelievably important in shaping your mindset.

The quality of your routines determines the caliber of your performance
Most are habituated and unconscious so run fantastic routines!
“Install routines of world class achievement”
66 days of practicing a new habit until you reach a point of automaticity
Get your habits right and then your life begins to transform
Proper food, exercise, “the 60 seconds student ritual” every day, less gossip, more celebration of other people
90/90/1:  for 90 days, invest your first 90 minutes on that 1 thing

“The person who sweats more in training, bleeds less in war”—The Spartans

Mastery is a Process
The moment you think you are a master, you are a beginner…
Maintain the apprenticeship mindset, working on “YOU 2.0”

Don’t worry about the economy, create your own economy because people ALWAYS pay for Mastery and pay for the Best!

Go out into the world and rise to epic, aim for legendary and construct a life that makes history…

“If you have the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, you have NO RIGHT to keep it to yourself”—Jacques Cousteau

Robin says…

It took me months and months of going through my private coaching black books, pouring over my personal journals and weeks and weeks of painstaking work to make my latest free training video for you Neville…

…I poured 1000% of my passion, knowledge and love into it so it would awaken the deepest and greatest part of you…

…and as you’ll see by the comments under it, tons of people from across the planet are saying it’s the most inspirational and valuable one I’ve ever made.

…in case you missed it, go ahead and watch it now before it expires


Unlike so many of the quick yet “light on content” videos these days, this one is 27 minutes long because it has hundreds of my best insights and strategies on unleashing your potential and living an EPIC life…

I’m here to help. And to fuel your rise…

Your success partner,



With a ton of appreciation, Robin
