Episode Highlights

Brian’s Ascent To Personal Success

  • He learned the answer on what it’s like to run a business on his father’s farm. It was his first definition of success.
  • He left graduate school for some time because of burnout and tried various jobs.
  • In 2012, he started his radio show while working a full-time job. And just in 2017, he went full time.
  • Brian warns that if you don’t like what you’re doing, and you become good at it, that’s what you’ll keep getting.
  • Going Full-Time and Running Your Own Business
  • For Brian, the greatest challenge is whether he could make a full-time income.
  • Unlike people who grew up with a business background, it was a huge paradigm shift for him.
  • You must keep planting the seeds while you’re harvesting because if you don’t, the cycle will restart.

The Commonalities of Successful People

  • They don’t give up, no matter how hard the situation is.
  • They define success and happiness in their own terms.
  • They understand and seek mentoring relationships to find out what they need to know.
  • They are not hungry for external motivation.
  • So long as they succeed, other achievements matter less.
  • It is vital to invest in yourself first before asking someone to invest in your programs.
  • They have positive mindsets, and they stick around people who will lift them.

The Importance of Collaboration To Achieve Success

  • The force of the average is strong. One’s personal definition of success can be defined by this force.
  • People who think in terms of competition have a scarcity mindset.
  • On the other hand, those who have an abundance mindset realize that the pie is infinite.
  • It’s far-fetched to immediately become business partners with someone you meet at a networking event.
  • You have to build relationships who will help you achieve your personal goals.

Why Should You Maintain Gratitude

  • If you’re not thankful for what you have, you will not be given something more significant to be grateful for. Gratitude is a key to success.
  • There is always something to be grateful for, even in adverse situations. However, you also have to learn your limits.
  • Listing down 100 things that you’re thankful for and reading that will make a significant shift in your mind.

Advice for People Who Are Struggling

  • There’s no way to know the insight on how a chain of events will unfold.
  • You have to be thankful for what you have and take nothing for granted.
  • There’s no one formula for success. Success is different for everyone.
  • The definition of success is different from one person to another. So, set goals in a different manner.
  • Dream big and earn big time. Don’t feel guilty for having ambition and aspiration.
  • Make an effort to lean on the people who are close to you.
  • When you keep your mind occupied with other things, the wrong things will not hold you at the same time.

The Greatest Mistakes That Hinder Success

  • Thinking that you know it all.
  • Thinking that you don’t need other people’s advice.
  • Once you reach a certain level of success, there will be a lot of noise around you that you will need to filter. You have to stay focused on your goal.
  • An understanding of what success means will take you far.

Knowing When to Say ‘No’

  • Don’t be afraid to say ‘no.’
  • In the beginning, you’re ready to say ‘yes’ to a lot of things because you're trying to build momentum.
  • Once you’re established, you can say ‘no’ to a few things.
  • People will say ‘no’ to test you—they test who will follow up and who is serious.

The Future of Collaboration

  • Brian thinks that the more we rely on technology, the more secluded we’re going to be.
  • Relying on technology affects the way you interact with people when you see them face-to-face.
