William. H. McRaven: Make Your Bed
Episode 154: Listener Favorite: We take inspiration from Admiral William H. McRaven and his best selling book, Make Your Bed. In 2014 he addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas, in a video which immediately went viral.
He shared 10 life lessons he had learned during his Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his long Naval career, but also throughout his life. In Make Your Bed, he builds on these principles by sharing inspiring tales from his own life and those around him in the military, explaining how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves for the better.
Circle Of Influence
Hello members and subscribers! It’s time for our fifth Moonshots Master episode, and here we are breaking down the CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE.
Opening up our minds to the concept, we get inspired by a series of motivational speakers, telling us to focus on you every day. We re-visit the very well-regarded Admiral William H. McRaven, who reminds us to start singing when we’re up to our necks in mud. We then hear from Robin Sharma, who reminds us to simply embrace confidence every day.
Now we’re all inspired, the next section helps us learn about the Circle of Influence, and who’s better to teach us than Stephen Covey himself. Mr Covey breaks down the Inner circle for proactive people (circle of influence), as well as the Outer circle for reactive people (circle of concern).
Now we understand the influence and mindset towards our circles, let’s work on how to make this reflection a part of our habit every day. We listen to Janis from Time Management, who has some actionable tips to stay focused. We also learn from Fearless Soul, and how we are responsible for who we agree to spend time with. Closing out the show, we hear again from Stephen Covey, who has some powerful mindset tips for us, encouraging us to remember that we can choose to carry your weather with us.
William D Danko: The Millionaire Next Door
In The Millionaire Next Door, William D. Danko skews the myths about how (and where) most millionaires live, and what it takes to become one. Their extensive research identified the sometimes surprising characteristics and habits shared by many millionaires. For instance, millionaires are often bargain shoppers (they buy used cars and off-the-rack clothing), pay only a small percentage of their wealth in income taxes, and shun the lavish lifestyles we often associate with being rich.
The book explains how to determine what your net worth should be, according to your age and income, and how you can build wealth over time and become a millionaire—if you have the discipline.
Robert T. Kiyosaki: Rich Dad, Poor Dad
Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad is one of the best-selling financial books in history. It tells the story of a boy with two fathers, one rich, one poor, to help you develop the mindset and financial knowledge you need to build a life of wealth and freedom. The two dads are a parable for two different approaches to wealth: Poor Dad recommends getting a secure job with good benefits and retiring with a pension. Rich Dad recommends amassing assets that make money for you, becoming financially literate, and practicing independent thinking.
In his book, learn how to achieve financial independence, why it’s a terrible idea to see your home as your biggest investment, and how to overcome the biggest mental blocks to becoming wealthy.
I need this podcast. I learn many things everyone I listen about coping and about how to live a better life… thank you!
Best tool for self improvement
Do you want to better your mindset and start living a meaningful life? This podcast is a strong tool to accomplish this. The people featured in their episodes come up over and over if you are really looking to better yourself and stop living your life on a nihilistic hamster wheel with the rest of the world. So many of us get stuck in the loop of just existing without any aim or “why” to push us to be better. The 2 gentlemen who host the podcast bring fresh ideas and applications to the work of some of the greatest thinkers and successful people out there. I am grateful I found this wonderful podcast and would recommend it to anyone who wants more out of life than just simply existing. If you’re new to podcasts, don’t get intimidated by the length of the episodes. Break it up into half in the morning half in the evening if you find it hard to sit through or however works for you. If you are able to keep an open mind and consciously decide that you have the potential to be better (doesn’t have to be a bad thing!) this podcast is a great resource. Thank you, Mike and Mark, for sharing!
