EP013: The Sword In The Stone and What’s Stopping You From Getting What You Want

After one of my quarterly mastermind events, that I attend in Laguna Beach, I had a revelation while listening to a friend talk about the full story of King Arthur and the sword in the stone. It’s a story that most people never hear that made me realize why I sometimes get stuck in certain areas in my life. It also gave me insight into why a lot of people never get what they want.

When it comes to reaching any goal, it’s not only important that you surround yourself with people who have achieved what you want to attain. But also equally important to surround yourself with people who you trust and will point out the things you may not see or want to hear. By doing so you will be able to learn from your mistakes then apply change moving forward. Without this type of environment it’s easy to get stuck in a “cup de sac” – spinning circles and wondering why things never change for you.


  • How you can learn from the military “hot wash” – which will teach you how to learn from your mistakes so that failure becomes a stepping stone, and not a roadblock
  • What the story of King Arthur and the sword in the stone has to do with breaking through your limitations and ultimately seeing success
  • The truth about HOW you get what you want, and why you may be struggling to pull the trigger and take action on the things that you want
  • How to avoid living a life of quiet desperation and live up to your standards
