Get ready for part 2 of this in depth talk with my mentor Joost Janssen. He has accomplished so much in his life and he says it wasn’t talent what got him success, it was hard work.
Some of the most talented people in life don’t accomplish much because they simply don’t have the commitment and the willingness to endure pain. This is something he learned first hand from the men who came through training to become a Navy Seal.
Joost even talks about how he almost quit his goal of becoming a Navy Seal. He endured a serious injury throughout his training and didn’t let it stop him.
Your drive and commitment to the goal must be more important than the struggles or pain you experience- Joost Janssen
Here are few of the topics we discuss in this episode:
- How to live your life and actually enjoy it
- Why quitting should be the last thing you ever do
- The fears that keep you from your full potential
- How to receive feedback and the reason you should LOVE critique and conflict
- And why you should never ever lie to yourself (and if you have, how to break the habit)
If you verbalize a goal you have and then don’t do it, you just lied to yourself.- Joost Janssen
What I love about Joost is the weird concepts we talk about, like how being selfish is the best thing you could be. We define what selfishness really is and how it can actually be your ultimate motivation.
If you want to learn some crazy communications skills then you will love this episode.
We talk about the 1st thing you must do in communication.
He shares what he’s learned from teaching famous actors and being on set of multiple films like Iron Man, Transformers, The Mummy and many others.
This episode is a long one but it’s perfect for a drive or a longer workout.
It’s inspiring, motivating, and truly changes your outlook on many things in your life. Needless to say, it’s packed with a LOT of high level ideas you can implement right away.
