Host John Carney shares his beliefs about taking massive amounts of focused action to achieve success in business and in life.
John references three books that helped him grow as an entrepreneur and real estate investor. These books taught him how to focus his attention, cut out the chatter and accelerate his career as a real estate investor and developer.
John believes that every action matters. Consistently working hard is the key ingredient to success in the real estate game. All of the action, mistakes, lessons and wins that you have accumulated over the course of your life matter today and in the future.
All of the “little wins” add up to bigger wins. You will have more “little wins” over time and those are the lessons that you want to recall when you encounter obstacles. Tap into your past experience to keep moving forward.
We all have multiple tasks to accomplish every day. A hierarchy of priorities exists, and we have to remember to focus on what’s important now.
The 10X Rule by Grant Cardnone
Do you want to stamp “Guarantee” on your success? Apply a multiple of 10X to what you do in life and every action you take. Be accountable for your actions and the results they produce – both good and bad.
The Obstacle Is The Way by Ryan Holiday
Ryan Holiday examines the writing and wisdom of Marcus Aurelius. “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” We face resistance in our lives the minute we wake up each morning. We encounter obstacles in our life every day, at home with our families and at the office in our chosen professions. We have choices. We are in control of how we react to challenges and failures. Our reactions determine either success or failure.
The Way Of The Seal by Mark Divine, Commander, US Navy SEALs (Retired)
Learn how to become laser focused on the task at hand. This book is about forging mental toughness as the key to a better life, better relationships and a better business. Being physically strong is important in life but without mental and spiritual strength we will fall short of maximizing our true potential. The good news is that mental toughness can be taught and forged through practice and discipline.
Thank you for tuning in to my first solo podcast. I truly hope that you took away some actionable advice. Until next week, work hard, play hard, and profit hard.
