In this Episode you will hear:
05: 06. Peter introduces his book, The Fearless Mindset: The Entrepreneur’s Guide To Get Fit In Less Time, Double Your Income, & Become Unstoppable. He reveals that his book is all about becoming fearless and unstoppable as an entrepreneur. He shows that many entrepreneurs like to procrastinate instead of keeping their focus on the prize. This book is for everyone who wants to conquer the fear that was holding them back from achieving the life they’ve always dreamed of.
06: 15: Peter reveals that what he missed in life was the focus. He says that he found it hard taking himself out of an environment where he was surrounded by distractions and putting himself in an environment that supported him to focus on one project and one outcome. This is also what affects many other entrepreneurs who want to build unstoppable businesses.
07: 54: James says that we all have the same amount of time like there is no greater equalizer than time. So there is no need to say that you don’t have enough time to accomplish what you want to do.
08: 44: Peter says that in the absence of clarity you cannot make the distinction between an opportunity and a distraction. We view everything as an opportunity, and so we find ourselves distracted by these shiny objects and these new invitations because we are not crystal clear in the first place what we’re setting out to create.
09: 40: Most people have not defined their version of success and as a result has not planned out the specific path towards that success.
09: 49: James says that most people do not have their version of success. The reason for this is that they don’t want to say NO. The real the real thing to consider here is that every time you say YES to something you are also saying NO to a whole bunch of other things. And when you say NO to something you are also saying YES to either something else or space for something else. So to be able to say YES to very few things that you want; you have to say NO to tons of things that don’t support that.
12: 20: Peter adds Warren Buffett’s quote that says that the difference between successful people and highly successful people is that highly successful people say No to almost everything. So when you say NO to 99 percent of things it leads you to say YES to just the right choice.
14: 07: James says that it is not that successful people are working a billion times harder than other people out there. But they’ve found ways to get leverage on their time. You get an allocation of 24 hours in a day, seven days in a week, and it’s up to you to decide how it is invested.
15: 43: Peter says that we should take ownership and responsibility of the time we have. So many people go through life blaming their boss, family or environment, but they are concentrating on other things that are taking their time away. You have sole responsibility for that.
16: 06: So stop focusing on this stuff but focusing on just the things that you can control. Prioritizing your fitness skyrocket your energy your focus and your competence so that you make more money.
18: 00: They also discuss some of the beliefs of the unstoppable entrepreneur.
18: 40: The most important belief that Peter shares are that, “I am the primary decision maker at the center of my existence.” It’s such a powerful belief to have because it empowers you to take ownership of your life and realize that you are responsible for your current reality.
24: 00: James says that we could be sitting in the same circumstance. One group may see it as an opportunity, but another group sees it as a problem. Some of us we underestimate the ability that we have to create our world. Others we think the reality is fixed. This is not supposed to be the case. There is no reality to the situation. The reality is created in people’s mind.
24: 00: Peter quotes Steve Jobs’ quote, ““When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it; you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
