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:
--how to become the disruptive visionary of your industry
--the need to make your "I can" larger than your "I can't" if you're ready to win
--the importance of leveraging your instinct to scale your success [over your intellect]
--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. It's not what you do once every year that is going to allow you to live a legendary life, it's what you do every single day.
I wanted to share with you 3 reasons why great leaders - the one's I've worked with, you know, many of the fortune 500 CEO's, billionaires, titans of industry, why great leaders really are devoted readers:
Thank you so much for following these Mastery Sessions, and sharing them with your friends, and your teammates, and I'll see you next time.
I'm doing this Mastery Session because so many people have been asking, "How do you really take a bad day and restructure it so that you can actually turn it into something valuable?"
I'm going to share with you the 5 Ps of turning a bad day into a valuable and even an epic day:
Here are the 5 ways Change-Makers generate confidence:
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
4. Be Deep vs Be Light
5. Be Kind
Nelson Mandela is a titan of humanity.
Mozart is a titan of music.
Edison or Einstein are titans of invention and science.
In this Mastery Session I'm going to deconstruct how the best of the best in business achieve their staggeringly noticeable results.
You can inspire the world. Or you can be liked by all. You don’t get to do both.
I feel energized to share this Mastery Session with you. And I need to humbly thank you for sharing each episode I release.
Millions of elite performers from 60+ nations have listened them since I started doing them a few months ago.
In this one you’ll learn:
Go for great. Own your game. Be kind. Get big things done.
With love and respect,
This Mastery Session is really a deconstruction of the eight reasons to be in business or the eight focal points as you scale up your business or scale up your team or grow your organization:
1. Fulfill Client Dreams
2. Remove Client Frustration
3. Refuel Client’s Joy
4. Distribute Value
5. Total Craft Mastery
6. Grow A Team of Picassos
7. Scale A Beautiful Life For You And Your Loved Ones
8. To Serve Humanity And To Pursue Immortality
I write in a journal daily. This extraordinary ritual has revolutionised my mindset, transformed my heartset and generally influenced my life exponentially.
I want the same results for you. Period.
And so, with deep care and the highest of focus, I recorded a new Mastery Session where I literally deconstruct my personal practice of journaling in to 7 compelling reasons to start today.
Hope this helps you rise to your best and lead your field. I’ve got your back. Let’s fuel your greatness.
Seriously rich and robust stream of ideas, insights and implementation strategies that have taken me--oh, about 20 years to discover--in today's Mastery Session.
Sure you've got a lot to do today. Got it. But just roll with me and watch this episode if you want to discover The 5 Mentalities of Mastery that the geniuses, business superstars and ultra-effectlive people run quietly through their minds.
With a ton of encouragement, here you go:
In this high-content session, you'll learn:
--The Lunchbox Mentality (and how it will make you unbeatable in your field)
--The phenomenon I call "The Collective De-Professionalization of Business" and how you can leverage it to your advantage today
--Potent ways to release your past so you can produce your brilliant future
--The peak belief of exceptional entrepreneurs (that also just happens to be the antidote to scarcity in your life)
And definitely share it with your team + friends so we spread the value to as many people as possible.
With love + respect for your highest ambitions + greatest talents,
--did you hear the story about how business icon Sam Walton got thrown into jail for pursuing innovation?
--interested in learning the #1 way great companies absolutely own their industries?
--want to know the dangers of "Mediocrity Creep" and how it destroys most businesses, over time?
If so, carve out 8 minutes and listen to this Mastery Session that I carefully made based on one of the models I teach at my annual flagship event The Titan Summit that has helped past attendees build their fortunes and scale world-class enterprises.
Hope all this free training I work so hard to make so valuable is helping you do epic things with your greatest days.
Learning from the giants injects their knowledge into your brain.
Associating with massively intelligent people and uncommonly successful performers, through their books and other content, infuses all they've understood into your days.
What I'm suggesting to you is that you can add 100 years of greatness/wisdom/value and insight into the rest of your life by installing what I call "The Daily 60 Minute Student Habit" onto your schedule.
I recorded this Mastery Session to walk you through my latest thinking on the power of curiosity as a way to winning.
Remember: Education is inoculation against disruption. And as you know more you can produce better.
Be great. Stay strong. Reach for genius.
One of the best skills you'll ever hardwire into your mindset + heartset is the skill of undefeatAbility.
For years I've talked about "grit" being a primary trait of the most successful people in business and the corresponding research of Angela Duckworth at University of Pennsylvania.
Bottom line: it's not the brightest who wins. It's the most relentless.
In this new #MasterySession, I dial into a research study of 12,000 managers and the one thing they did that created their best performing days.
I'll also teach you my "Nightly 3 Ritual" which will boost your confidence, elevate your momentum and breed a Pharmacy of Mastery in your brain. Watch it here:
Thank you to everyone across the planet watching The Mastery Sessions, using them at team meetings to grow market-leading organizations and sharing them with their friends to help them improve their lives vastly.
I handcraft each episode with a ton of care, passion + love. Happy they've been so helpful to so many.
And I promise to work even harder, to make them even better for you.
All green lights. Your fan always,
Much of my life has been a devotion to a simple expression: you can lead without a title.
The old model of leadership taught us that to lead meant the need to have a formal position, high authority and a big office.
But we're now in Leadership 2.0.
And if you want your organization to win. And if you want your craft to fly, you absolutely need to learn to show brilliant leadership without relying on a title [or needing one].
So, if--on this precious day of your massively important life--you're amped/excited and set to learn:
--how the best leaders think
--ways to leap from victim to world-builder
--why growing more leaders is Job #1
--my popular "3 I Practice" for creating a culture of people who lead versus coast that has inspired my clients to scale great companies...
Remember, what you do every day is x100 more important than what you do once a year.
And the finest leaders + the fastest performers all make the time to learn + grow daily. Why? Because as you know more you'll achieve more. And as you become better, you'll experience greater.
So definitely watch, study and then deconstruct [I'll do a video sometime on how I deconstruct insights as it's such a potent practice] this episode.
Ok. Hope this helps. Go be great!
With love + respect,
How did Jobs + Musk, Dali + Kanye, Mandela + DaVinci do it?
Yes they worked their crafts, invested in their acumen, found the right mentors and exercised the grit to get their audacious visions done.
But one thing every single icon who has ever graced our precious planet has had in common is the ability to install systems that release their greatest productivity.
Having worked with many billionaires as a leadership + elite performance advisor, I've watched how they do what they do. And I've taught them a series of "peak performance protocols" that have caused them to x100 their results, impact and contribution.
These remarkable powerful proprietary systems I've created include:
--The 90/90/1 Rule
--The Tight Bubble of Total Focus Strategy (TBTF)
--The A-Player Orbit Mentality
--The Learned Minimalism Philosophy
I hope this Mastery Session serves your productivity beautifully.
With love + respect,
I truly hope you're doing things today to fuel your joy, accelerate your success and move the needle toward your most audacious ambitions.
If you want to grow your confidence, creativity, productivity and prosperity exponentially you really need to watch this new Mastery Session where I walk you through 5 of the most valuable and result-driving leadership principles you will ever learn.
I encourage you to not only watch the episode a few times but go deep into it. Deconstruct it. Study it. Reflect on it in your journal or on your whiteboard.
In a world where a superficial approach is most common, go rare-air. Be rigorous around the insights. Dial in on them. Master them.
And definitely post a comment after you've gone through the podcast so I can read your thoughts on it.
With love and respect, Robin

All green lights,
P.S. THANK YOU: Millions of people have downloaded The Mastery Sessions, my new podcast, since I started releasing episodes just a few months ago.
It all started off as an idea and it's becoming a revolution. I feel vastly blessed to be able to help + inspire + serve. Truly.
I’ve advised famous billionaires, top NBA stars, music royalty and some of the most successful entrepreneurs on the planet at my annual flagship event, The Titan Summit.
If there’s a single trait they all have in common it’s the “developed ability” to remain inspired not only when conditions are easy but (especially) when everything’s falling apart.
I call it a “developed ability” because keeping the passion in terrifying times is a muscle, a skill that grows greater with practice. You CAN rise to world-class in your inspiration. You just need to commit. And then put in the training time. Daily.
In this volatile world, with wholesale negativity, and many focusing on the worst of humanity, it has never been so important to learn how to protect your inspiration.
This hot new Mastery Session, handcrafted with a lot of care and love for you, will help you do exactly that.
Managing + maintaining your inspiration so you do inconic work, influence your field and lift our world isn’t a “soft skill”. Actually, it’s really hard to stay focused, brilliant and productive in this Age of Dramatic Distraction.
This new episode will walk you through some very practical skills to help you to remain at your best in the beautiful seasons and within the messy times.
And then go own your game. And rock your craft!
Hope all this free content-rich training I send over to you each week is helping you do amazing work, create a spectacular life and make your impact on all the human beings that will be served by your increasing greatness.
With love + respect,
Well, if you want to learn:
--the #1 reason to be relentless in becoming the icon of your field
--how to be so revered at what you do that you need no introduction
--why ego destroys exponential productivity
--potent ways to dial in your psychology to become Michelangelo-level in your market
--how to build a movement of Fanatical Followers...
...then definitely, carve out some time before this gift of a day is done to invest in your growth, increasing skill and best life by watching this new #MasterySession that I made with intense + immense passion.
With lots of love,
This Mastery Session is all about how to leap from a job to a craft.
To lift your work from a job to a craft, install the perception that no work is ordinary.
Why am I doing this Mastery Session? Someone who was at The Titan Summit a few months ago told me, "The best idea that I got from the 4 day event was your concept of building a team of Picassos."
In this episode I'm sharing some of my ideas on building a team of Picassos. These are not from a book I've read or from a conference I've been to.
I've spent many years building multiple businesses, and I'll tell you, at my core business, I have the best team in place that I've ever had in the history of the company.
What I'm going to share with you in this podcast hopefully will be a game-changer, but also will be incredibly practical because it's derived from tremendous experience. I mean, I have had to hire a lot of employees. I've had to let go of a lot of employees. I've dealt with difficult employees. I've got knocked down by some employees. I've been lifted up by a lot of employees. What I'm sharing from you comes from the heart, and it comes from the trenches.
Here are 4 lessons to build a team of Picassos (+ 4 methods to help you keep them in your team)
I truly believe that given the twin forces of globalisation + market disruption, it has never been so important to do your finest work and lead your professional field.
You're competing against top talent across the world these days. And so only the best will thrive.
I love great quotes. The right line can carry an entire book's worth of insight + impact.
And so I've made this new Mastery Session for you where I share 5 of my favorite quotes to evoke your highest performance.
Hope this helps. And please remember: little acts of progress performed each day with consistency cause vast improvements over time. Make today count.
Your fan always,
Whether you lead a nation, an enterprise, a community or a family, we are all in the communication business.
Knowing what to say, in the right way--at the perfect moment--can mean the difference between a world-class life and an average one.
As I start building out new teaching models for The Titan Summit in Zurich this December, I spent a lot of time recently deconstructing what I've learned advising and witnessing many of the world's top leaders.
And I've put my best insights as well as some super-practical strategies in this brand new Mastery Session.
I know the information will really help you both in your work and at your home. But like all learning, it's not going to make a difference if you don't watch this video and then, even more importantly, start practising the concepts until they wire in as habits.
Go be great.
Forgiveness isn't just a blessing you deliver to another human being. Forgiveness is also a gift you give yourself.
Too many potentially fantastic performers + rare-air leaders among us have left their best creativity, productivity and impact on the table of broken dreams because they stayed stuck in the past.
You can stay angry at someone who hurt you. Or you can get busy doing your visions and changing our world. But you don't get to do both.
I lovingly made this new Mastery Session called How to Forgive a Human Being to elegantly help you forgive the unforgiven so you leap from any victimhood up to leadership.
As always, I'm in your corner. You can be great. And now is your time.
All green lights,
