EP 113: Hard Skills That Will Pay You Forever (Part 1)

In life, there are certain skills that you can opt in to learn.

Skills that are hard… but will eventually pay you dividends for a lifetime!

Now, to be completely transparent here…
By no means have I “perfected” these skills to the point where I’m no longer trying to improve.

Quite the opposite actually.
In my eyes, self-improvement is a never-ending journey.

However, one of the things I have worked on the most in recent years is…
My self-management skills.

Setting yourself up for success and managing yourself properly is a superpower.

It’s involved in everything in life.

Whether it be my diet, my sleep, or my general environment…
When I’m in a good place, I can influence things very differently.

Dotting the I-s and crossing the T-s within my own lifestyle and routine has put me in a position where I can now perform my best.

Now, look… There’s no shame in anyone who is still practicing this art.
Trust me – I used to struggle with this a lot.

Earlier in my journey,
The consequences of not managing myself properly had a huge cost to my business.

To give you an example…

I had incredibly good team members quit because of my actions.

I used to bring my own problems to the business…
Or, if something didn’t go my way I would complain and moan.

Eventually I had to look at myself and be honest,
If that’s the energy I was bringing to the table…

Who the hell would want to work with me?

Now… you don’t have to make these same mistakes as I did.

Fortunately for you…
