    When someone is drowning, is that the best time to teach them how to swim? On today’s podcast, the guys talk about the unique position you’re in when you’re the ”go-to” person in your family. You’re the one that everyone calls when they’re in a bind or when they need money. How do you determine when you’re truly helping someone versus hurting them? How do you determine how much to give and how often to give? When are you helping versus enabling? The guys review and explain their process of helping those who are truly in need vs. letting others dig themselves out of holes they continue to dig for themselves.

    One thing that the guys feel strongly about is healthy relationships. It Doesn't matter if it's friends, family, or business; interpersonal relationships play a big part in each of the guy's daily lives. On today's podcast, CJ starts the conversation off talking about two good friends who are at odds with each other, and he's found himself in the middle. From the outside looking in, he realizes both parties are highlighting the other's faults that they could each clearly see before the beef kicked off and chose to say nothing about. Now, because they're fighting one another, those problems have taken center stage.   Have you ever had a situation where you were at odds with someone and didn't know how to fix it? ET and the guys give practical advice on keeping and sustaining healthy relationships in all areas of your life.

    Self-discipline is a much more reliable predictor of one’s future success than an IQ score. There are a lot of smart people. They score highly on tests, their comprehension is off the charts, and they always do well in school. But there aren’t a lot of disciplined people. They can’t make or keep commitments; they allow things to distract them when they need to be doing something else. Most importantly, that inability to discipline themselves keeps them from accomplishing their dreams and goals. This week, the guys break down how your approach to self-discipline is the anchor that either keeps you tethered to or away from living the life you’ve always wanted.

    Self discipline is a much stronger predictor of one’s future success than IQ. When you’re average when the resources run low you’re the first to go. When times get tough you have to be in producer mode not consumer mode. The true dog is not letting yourself stay in the same spot. Find your triggers of things that get you undisciplined.

    Have you ever hired a coach or taken advice from someone you trusted and didn't get the results you wanted? You did everything they told you to do; you took the course, read the book, yet you're still in the same place. On today's podcast, the guys talk about what it takes to get real sustained, permanent change in your life—a change in behavior, and your mindset will lead to the results you want.
    The Secret to Success Topics:

    You can’t talk yourself into something you behaved yourself into. Talking doesn’t change it, you have to work on your behavior. Change your perspective on things so you can do them better. It’s not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you’re not. Listener Perks:
