Alan Stein Bio – 1:57
Question One: 4:26
Who are you currently working with and excites you right now?
My transition into the corporate world to share the lessons learned from some of the best athletes in the world
Question Two: 5:45
What are some of the most important factors that are allowing people to be successful
Mindsets / Rituals during the unseen hours
Take advantage of every opportunity to get better and master their craft
Question Three: 7:37
Anything specific you’re seeing on the habit / ritual side?
You choose your habits and your habits dictate if you’re going to be successful or not.
The successful work relentlessly to infuse positive habits into their lives.
Question Four: 8:47
Do you find those that travel the difference between road habits and home habits?
For the best of the best, if the environment changes, their habits don’t and especially their commitment to their habits.
All high performers are able to “adapt” to their environment when it changes beyond their control (timing / location)
The commitment to make the time not find the time to implement your key habits regardless of their environment
Question Five: 10:29
What time of mindset do you find in high achievers that allow them to find success and do what they need to do?
They have an immense respect for TIME. (ie: hour glass analogy)
Three indisputable truths about time:
- None of us has any idea how much sand it at the top of their hour glass
- We can’t stop the sand from going to the bottom
- Once the sand hits the bottom there’s nothing I can do or change
The best athletes in the world know how to “play present” which means three things:
- You focus on the next play – it’s the only play you can have an effect on (short term memory)
- You focus on the only things in this world you have control over – Most people are worrying about everything they have ZERO PERCENT control over
- You focus on the process – reverse engineer to work them backwards for success
Three things you can do with Your Time:
- Invest it
- Spend it
- Waste it
Father Time has an undefeated record in this world
There are only TWO things we have COMPLETE control over:
- Our Attidude
- Our Effort
“Old people live in past, young people live in the future, but successful people live in the present.”
Question Six: 21:42
What are your thoughts on people who are afraid of failure and what happens to short circuit their success?
I believe failure is more of a mindset
I grew up that Failure was the 1st “F Word” and a bad thing but have had to unlearn that bad mindset
We need to learn to be resilient to failure when you do your best to prepare
We don’t enjoy failure and tend to avoid it naturally
Change of mindset – learning and overcoming your failures and enjoying your success all the more
Any time you do things that challenge you there will be times you will fail. But your mindset must change and learn from it.
Question Seven: 24:51
You have a quote on Failure that I absolutely love, will you comment on it?
Failure is the catalyst to growth. If you’re closed to failure, you’re closed to improvement, development, and ultimately success
There’s a difference between “having fear” and “being scared”
Having Fear = respecting the process
Being Scared = being paralyzed
Tight Rope Example of having fear vs. being scared
Nutrition Energy Boost: 27:04
5 Minute Energy Kickstart Promo: 27:47
Question Eight: 28:45
What do you see the correlation between Energy and Success you’ve found with High Achievers?
They are DIRECTLY correlated.
Energy is a choice. You create the systems and the rituals / habits that are all but guaranteed to give you energy.
How many people are more concerned about the battery on their cellphone than on their own body. They don’t plug into a good night of sleep, healthy meal, or working out.
Thermostat vs. Thermometer
Thermostat = sets the temperature
Thermometer = reads the temperature
High Performers energy is a Thermostat and creates the energy
Question Nine: 32:50
If someone is not at an elite level but wants to get there, what do they need to begin to do with their energy?
Everything starts with self-awareness.
Your energy is also individualistic so you need to know yourself in detail to make the most of your energy.
Learn to ask key questions to improve.
Do more of what works and less of what doesn’t.
Question Ten: 34:55
Any closing thoughts for us today?
Some of the best are just born with incredible God-given skills but even then what makes them successful is never being bored with the basics or the fundamentals.
Ignore society’s pressure and commit to the basics where you’re in athlete or in corporate.
But give yourself the needed grace and string together as many good days as possible.
