Show Notes

Veni, vidi, vici. That is an Italian phrase that means, "We came, we saw, we conquered." It’s very past tense, and I love that. That’s the lifestyle I want to live – we did everything we wanted in this lifetime.

Three Problems

  • We often bunker rather than build when we feel our growth is most stagnant.
  • When we fail to prioritize the physical dimension of life, we are more likely to live in ways that are not aligned with our core values.
  • When it comes to personal growth, our tendency is to rush the process rather than trust the process.

Five Principles

  • Sometimes pursuing a passion begins with quitting a job or sacrificing financial comfort.
  • Engaging in hobbies often increases our creativity and resolve in the workplace.
  • Our 6pm-6am hours have a more profound impact upon our 6am-6pm hours than we could ever imagine.
  • We can never predict the future, but we can always consider our next five steps.
  • Opportunities come in two varieties: earned and gifted.

The R.E.A.L. Paradigm
