If you’re an entrepreneur (or a wantrepreneur), this episode is for you. Today I’m talking with Gino Wickman, arguably one of the most influential entrepreneurs in modern history and bestselling author of Traction, Get a Grip, and Rocket Fuel. Perhaps even more consequential, he’s the creator of EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System), which is used daily by over 100,000 companies around the world.

Gino’s newest book, The Entrepreneurial Leap is packed with real-life stories and advice to help others make the leap into entrepreneurship, shorten your learning curve, and produce significant results. However, this isn’t just a book for new entrepreneurs. It helped me to identify the fundamentals necessary to optimizing my business, many of which I’d skipped on my own journey.

Today, Gino and I are talking about what he’s learned about starting businesses in his 30 years of coaching entrepreneurs, the meaning of true entrepreneurship, and how to realize what you’ve been put on this earth to do.

Key Takeaways

  • The 6 essential traits to being an entrepreneur.
  • Why over 50% of new businesses are out of business in the first five years and the complicated relationship between entrepreneurship and risk taking.
  • The eight critical mistakes that even seasoned entrepreneurs make.
  • Why entrepreneurial parents shouldn’t force their kids to become entrepreneurs.
  • What makes rejection such a powerful and valuable learning experience.
  • The 9 stages of building a successful business.

Let’s be honest, life can really suck sometimes. Life can be difficult. On our worst days, life can feel downright unbearable. So, how can we be happy and enjoy our lives, more often than not?

On last week’s podcast, we began to answer this question by exploring How to Make Every Moment the Best Moment of Your Life (in case you missed that episode, I highly recommend you listen to it here first before you dive into this one). 

This week, we’re picking up where last week left off. By evaluating what enabled me to go to bed the other night, feeling like I had lived my best day ever, I’ve found a repeatable formula you can use to create the best day of your life, on any given day. 

Today I’m sharing with you what I now do that enables me to make any day the best day of my life, why I do it, and how you can too.

Key Takeaways

  • Why the best day of your life exists in isolation and not in comparison to the other days you’ve lived.
  • How to stop the things that are all but guaranteed to happen from ruining the best day of your life. (e.g. traffic, disappointments, difficult people, etc.)
  • Why living in alignment with your values is the key to experiencing a feeling of total satisfaction, fulfillment, and contentment.
  • The common obstacles to living your best day and how to tackle them, one by one.
  • The three-step formula for living the best day of your life.

If I were to ask you to recall the best moment of your life, what comes to mind…?

I think most people would recall a significant event or occasion, such as the birth of a child, their wedding day, running a marathon, or the day that they got to ______ (fill in the blank with some exceptional experience). For most, the best moment would likely be an event or circumstance and the positive emotions they experienced as a result, which prompts them to identify it as their best moment.

But what if the best moment of your life wasn’t measured by external circumstances? What if it was something you chose rather than something that occurred randomly? If that were the case, could one choose to make any, or every moment the best moment of their life? Might that be possible?

And if it was possible to choose to experience any moment as the best moment of your life, if you had that ability, what would be the repercussions of using that ability daily? How might it impact the quality of your life?

Today, we’re exploring this idea of the best moment of your life; what it’s about, if we have the power to create and experience it, if it’s left to chance, and if it’s random. I’m also going to share why people struggle with implementing this concept, and how you can overcome the struggles in a way that can significantly and immediately enhance the quality of your life.

Ultimately, in this episode I share how you can begin experiencing any moment as the best moment of your life—literally—even during extremely difficult circumstances.

Key Takeaways

  • Why pitting external circumstances against the internal experience is key to achieving inner freedom—and why inner freedom is (arguably) more important than your external circumstances.
  • How to create your inner experience during trying and emotionally painful times.
  • The power of accepting the moment as-is to invite emotional peace, inner peace, and emotional freedom.
  • How to be an island of sanity for the people closest to you in chaotic times.
  • Ways to make any given moment the best moment of your life and live in a state of perpetual fulfillment.

A few weeks ago, I did a podcast episode where I shared with you a behind-the-scenes look at my next book. On that episode, I announced that we’re going to try a new “Ask Me Anything” format on the podcast, and I invited you to submit your questions, with a promise to answer them on future episodes. 

Today is our first “Ask Me Anything” episode and I’m answering your questions—and over the last few weeks, y’all have sent in A LOT of questions! :^) 

The questions I’m answering today are about finding purpose in life, emotional intelligence, optimizing your mindset, and a number of other topics. 

If you would like to ask me a question, please go to HalElrod.com/AMA to submit it. Depending on how this goes, I’ll keep a running list of questions and answer as many as I can—perhaps as often as once or twice a month!

Key Takeaways

  • How to find purpose and hope in an uncertain future—and why you get to decide what your life is all about.
  • How to redefine success by defining your values.
  • What we can do to learn optimism and develop internal motivation to live out unwavering faith in the face of worry, doubt, and negativity.
  • How to separate yourself from outcomes as you work to hit your goals—and why committing to the process without getting attached to the result is the secret to success.
  • My simple strategy to ensure that I drink enough water to stay hydrated.
  • How to write an affirmation to help ensure you will commit yourself to achieve your goal, no matter how challenging it is.

Have you ever taken the time to examine your identity and how it’s impacted your life? For most of us, that’s not something we ever even think of doing. Our identity kind of runs in the background, and yet it impacts everything we do. 

Every day we show up and live our lives based on who we believe we are and how we perceive ourselves—and these beliefs can either help us or hurt us. In essence, what we believe about ourselves—good OR bad—is what we become.

Today, we’re going to bring our unexamined identities to the surface and I’m going to share actionable steps you can take to intentionally and strategically upgrade your identity in order to upgrade your reality.

Key Takeaways

  • How anyone can upgrade their identity to improve any aspect of their life.
  • Why so many top performers activate an “alter ego” so they can perform at their best.
  • How I upgraded my identity as a father to transcend mediocrity and show up for my kids as “Superdad.”
  • How you can conceptualize what it means to be a peak performer in any environment and define your ideal identity.
  • What you can do to create an opportunity for virtually instant transformation.
  • The four simple steps you can take to identify which aspects of your identity you need to improve, what might be holding you back, what you want to change, and how to live it.
