If you have followed this blog for a while, you will know that I have talked about Gary Vaynerchuk previously. I wasn’t planning to create a new post about Gary but given the value of this podcast, I felt compelled to share.
Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook by Tony Robbins
Tony Robbins has been a bastion of the motivation movement for decades through his live seminars, CDs, DVDs and engagement on social media. He has also authored a number of books along the way. His latest, Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook, co-written with Peter Mallouk, provides a framework for achieving financing goals sooner with seemingly less hassle than you might imagine.
How do you go from having 4 kids by 18 to chasing your dreams?
Today, I wanted to share with you the amazing journey of Dr Tererai Trent, described by Oprah Winfrey as her “all-time favorite guest”.
Having children while still a child herself, Tererai was destined to have the same life as her mother and grandmother before her in a rural cattle-herding village in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Then at the age of 19, while expecting her 5th child, a chance encounter helped her to dream and changed her life forever.
Dr Trent recently shared her amazing story on Lewis Howes’ School of Greatness podcast:
I know, I know…. The title is a bit cliched but hear me out 🙂 I wanted to share with you a little routine which could help you stay happier and more balanced throughout the day. All it takes is about 5 minutes.
Before I dive right in, I thought it might be worthwhile sharing why I think this technique is so powerful.
Over the past year, my daily routine has changed significantly but I think the one thing that has had the most impact is a journalling exercise which takes about 5 minutes. Before I adopted this exercise, I would have days when I’d come home from work holding onto some negative comment or thought I’d encountered throughout the day. So not only would I have an average day at work but then I’d also be bringing that baggage home, which is not good for me or those around me.
Having adopted this exercise for a few weeks, it dawned on me one day that my mood seemed to be better and was staying more balanced throughout the day.
