This episode is a relatively quick one where I'm going to deconstruct one of my well-known brain tattoos. It's essentially this: "Make your 'I can' more important than even your IQ."
Learn how to create explosive confidence like Kanye West.
We live in a world, I call it the cult of superficiality, addicted to distraction, afflicted by interruption. So we take the trinity of our performance assets, our mental focus, our physical energy, and our willpower, those are the three primary assets of a world-class producer, and we diffuse them, we disperse them, around thousands of projects, lots of little things.
And yet I think of the 7,000 Ferrari philosophy. They are world class in terms of producing iconic automobiles, vehicles, but they don't want to appeal to everyone. They don't produce hundreds of thousands of vehicles. They want to do a few products, they want to bring out a few things, but do them really, really well.
That's really the craftsmen mindset. That's how craftsmen think: "Do few things, but do them really well."

Personal sharing: as my profile grows, I've had a few people who have tried to bring me down.
As I've heightened my obsession to serve, I've had some critics who have hoped I'd fall.
As I've helped more human beings live their greatness + lead world-class lives, I've had some haters who have tried to dim my light.
Yet--rather than burying me, these "spiritual friends" have built me.
And I've used the rocks they threw at me to build monuments of forgiveness, understanding, wisdom and compassion within me.

I've spent 20+ years advising billionaires, celebrated CEOs and other titans of industry on how to multiply their income, lift their influence + unleash their highest impact.
Here's one of the strange paradoxes I've observed:
A number of them are super-wealthy but very poor.
--they have money yet lack meaning
--they have a large net worth but low self-worth
--they have jets and yachts but no joy and peace.
So, in this new Mastery Session that I'm ultra-excited to share with you today, you'll learn what real wealth is all about.
When I met Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple at The Titan Summit in Zurich he shared an insight I'll carry with me always.
--yes, he taught those blessed to be in the room with this giant of industry to make sure our work represented BIW: Best in The World [and his winning moves to do so]
--yes, he noted that he was obsessed, as he invented Apple's first computer, with producing a product that no one had ever seen [with color and symbols]
--yes, he made us laugh when the blue box he and Steve Jobs were marketing for free phone calls was used by him to call the Pope
Yet--what I'll never forget from that unique encounter with a game-changing genius is this one line he offered to me as I interviewed him on the stage:
I made a decision early on that when people were not nice to me I'd be nice to them.
In this Mastery Session called "The 4 Signs of a Genius Entrepreneur" you'll discover:

--the precious value of becoming "a radiant optimist" so problems get recoded into possibilities. And adversity fuels pure mastery.
These are 5 SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures), that I encourage you to wire into your daily life through consistent practice, because as you know so well, consistency is the mother of mastery.

Newton once said "If I have seen more than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants." I don't know if you have a mentor, but if you don't have a mentor, you'll want to get one as swiftly as possible because we become our influences, we become our conversations. We think and perform like the people we surround ourselves with in our orbit.
Here are the 5 Leadership Lessons My Mentors Have Taught Me:
1. Run Your Own Race
2. Be Willing To Be Eccentric
3. Stand for World-Class
