On Today's Episode:
If you’ve ever felt depressed over where you are in life, experienced the embarrassment of getting fired, been frustrated over student loan debts and bills you can’t afford to pay, then you’re in the right place for a reality check.
Your circumstances are a direct reflection of the decisions you’ve made until this point. It doesn’t matter that things never go your way. It doesn’t matter that every time you try to step up you get overlooked. The only thing that matters is that you’re willing to be honest with yourself about where you are and that you’re ready to turn your life around and take total ownership of your life. Every success and every failure is 100% yours if you get unstuck and become unstoppable.
Tom Bilyeu went from being broken, scared, and insecure to becoming confident enough to develop his leadership skills and earn massive respect. The lesson for you right now is to stop giving your control away and start owning your sh*t!

Chasing the wrong things in life, missing opportunities you practically prayed for, and not seeing yourself moving in the direction you wish leaves you feeling lost. It’s like walking aimlessly and wondering when someone will tell you which way you’re supposed to go.
You can change your life in this very moment, but you first have to take control of your story, your beliefs and what you think to be possible for you. It’s possible to live the life you dream of.

"Crypto Is CRASHING!" - Once In A Lifetime Opportunity To BUILD WEALTH Is Here | Michael Saylor

On Today's Episode:
Given the current global economic crisis we’re all living through, it’s safe to say that something is broken with our traditional models of government and economics. Today’s guest is not shy about calling it out for what it is as we experience unprecedented times with unprecedented levels of public intervention.
Michael Saylor is an entrepreneur and business executive. He’s the executive chairman and co-founder of MicroStrategy. After recently stepping down from his role as the CEO of MicroStrategy after 30 plus years, he’s sharing his unique perspective of what it means to survive our current global crisis. MicroStrategy is the biggest publicly traded corporate owner of bitcoin with close to 130,000 BTC.
There’s a necessity for you to understand money, understand how to protect your balance sheet, and understand your property rights. For some of us, it is riskier to stay where you are when considering to what extent governments are suppressing the free market, controlling your assets, and manufacturing metrics that don’t reveal the true picture
The most important decision for you to make at this point is where to place your assets and store value. Will you choose to store your assets and build value in things like real estate and gold that can be seized, taxed and controlled by the government, or will you consider what you can achieve by storing your assets through bitcoin?

“When you buy something that everybody else understands to be good at the same time they all agree with you, it’s normally bad.” [7:37]
“When a government declares a war, they basically put public policy and initiatives ahead of the free market.” [11:21]
“The road to hell is paved in good intents.” [15:29]
“Anybody you know that’s a billionaire, [...] the Jeff Besos, the Elon Musks of the world, they didn’t get there without holding an asset that had technical potential for a decade or longer, there is no get rich quick schemes.” [18:53]
“War is a suppression of the free market to the benefit of the public organization.” [20:56]
“We have a set of metrics that are manufactured metrics, and then we focus on them and then we talk about them, but ultimately what you have is an economy that has been distorted...” [26:10]
“The U.S. primary expert is inflation, and it’s a good situation, [...] we get products or services in return for exporting the dollar.” [50:45]
“A terrifying thing becomes an excuse for the government to encroach more on freedom.” [1:00:10]

This Is How You CONVERT Your Failures Into SUCCESS | Tom Bilyeu
Build IRONCLAD discipline in this FREE workshop: https://bit.ly/3SbkPqM
Failure is an equal opportunist. It’s one of those things every person walking this Earth will face at some point. Failure doesn’t discriminate on color, race, social class, educational level and it damn sure doesn’t care about who you know or what you’ve accomplished in the past. It is faithful and loving enough to stay with you longer than your most embarrassing photo. So why run, why feel bad, and why beat yourself up over it? Tom is sharing some of his biggest failures in this Q & A, and breaking down the exact techniques he’s used to go from lying face down on cheap nylon carpet shamed by failure in film school to cashing in on the mindset that keeps giving, and keeps working hand in hand with every failure.
It is possible to have a loving relationship with failure (that may be a bit of exaggeration) but you can learn to joyfully deal with your failures. Tom’s request to you, is that as soon as you watch this, pick ONE piece of advice, one technique you can try out and DO IT today! Rewatch this as much as you need to, but do make a move and stop allowing failure, shame, and self sabotage to hold you back from reaching the next level to your success.

“No matter how successful the person is that you're looking at, [...] the one thing that I can promise you is that all of us struggle on the inside” [1:18]
“It may take you longer, you may have to work harder than somebody else, but if you love it enough, and you want to be that thing, then you can become that thing.” [11:21]
“Don't be afraid to be incapable, simply recognize what you're going to need to do in order to get capable, and then decide whether you're willing to put the time and the energy into it or not.” [30:49]

Great content, but….
So much excellent content here over many years, but if you want to “be the next Disney”, you need to improve your sound quality. The recent episode with Gabor Mate was unlistenable in all environments that didn’t have a cone of silence. I understood the early pandemic episodes with weaker quality, but time to step it up.
Bad at interviews
Tom loves to talk about himself. His questions take forever to ask. Just plain crummy at interviewing. I feel bad for his guests.
Every single episode I watch I feel it adding value to my life, even if its mostly subconsciously. Thank you Tom Bilyeu, and his team ofcourse, for doing what y'all do, to work towards aggregating together a long list of jaw-dropping, inspiring, and motivating speakers; and relentlessly maintaining life-changing conversations.
Don't take my word for it. See it for youself; as nothing I could say, atleast for the time being; would come anywhere close to serving it justice by description.
