EP077: 17 Lessons To Invigorate Your Life

3 or 4 years ago I wrote a blog post with 99 lessons from life in it. At the time, I didn’t think much about. So when it went viral I was surprised by how many people enjoyed and shared it.

Last year I decided to give my original post an upgrade. I ended up rewriting a lot of it – pulling from my notes in my journals, my voice recordings, as well as insights on things I had changed since then.

What started as a blog—that I was going to write over the course of a week —ended up taking almost a year to complete. I am really proud of the completed project and am currently packaging it as an ebook – which I will be giving away for free. My hope is that you can take the lessons I have learned over the course of my life and apply them to your own—and benefit from them as much as I have.

Since there was no way to cover all the lessons in the podcast, I chose 17 powerful lessons and stories to share with you.

Let’s go.


  • How I approach each day and the lesson that you need to live by if you want to continue to grow and improve
  • The most important thing to understand if you want to win in life – no matter how bad a card you have been dealt or the obstacles you are facing
  • The one word that you need to understand that will help your happiness thrive
  • My favorite documentary and why it fires me up to be the best in the world at my craft every time that I watch it
  • A painful question that will determine whether you need to change
  • The 3 C’s that drive our intrinsic motivation and what helped me get out of some of the darkest places in my life
  • The formula for achieving anything you want in life
  • The 7 lessons of the Japanese forrest and why they are such an important part of my belief system
  • The 5-steps to changing your subconscious behaviors
  • The number one thing we should buy and use
  • How to use your favorite self-sabotage stories to unlock your growth
