Now that we have found our favorite podcasts from the School of Greatness Podcasts, it is time to introduce you to The School of Greatness book by Lewis Howes!
This book is a summary of the best lessons that Lewis Howes has learned through doing 1,000's of interviews with successful entrepreneurs and athletes These lessons are from the best of the best in their fields, I mean is there anyone else we should be learning from?
One of our favorite aspects of the School of Greatness, the thing that sets it apart from other "success books," is that Lewis not only gives us the information we need but in each chapter he has exercises that will help us start putting what we learn to use. It is one thing to feed your mind that knowledge and it is another to actually act on that knowledge. Acting on that knowledge is the only way to reach those goals, and Howes helps us do just that.
So now lets get to the leverage that this book will give us as we move towards the life of our dreams.
What We Will Learn From The School of Greatness
The first thing that Lewis Howes focuses on is crafting our vision. This is the foundation for our success as our vision is what will determine all of our actions.
Without this vision we are just taking random action, with no plan, and then hoping that something sticks. Well guess what, that is a guaranteed route to the slowest journey to success that we could take.
Lewis Howes takes what he has learned interviewing these entrepreneurs and their advice on creating a vision to create both an informational chapter and a chapter that will show us an actionable way to create that vision.
The next part of the School of Greatness Book tells us how to leverage our strengths and use them to our advantage. Playing right off of the saying from Gary Vaynerchuk about how we need to leverage our strengths and not worry about our weaknesses, this book gives us the steo by step guide on how to do that.
**While it doesn't exactly give us ideas on how to find our strengths, there are a few techniques that we have used in the past that work great... The most effective one being asking those around you (friends, teachers, parents, coworkers, etc) what they think that you do best. Make sure it is their honest opinion though otherwise it does us no good!**
Carrying on, here is where we get to our favorite parts of this book where we learn to create the best version of ourselves and hustle like never before with the top strategies and knowledge from those killing the game...
Cultivate The Champions Mindset
It all starts up top guys, we have to learn how to win in our minds before the results will show in real life.
If we don't focus on improving ourselves we will lose, no doubt because each level of our success will require a new version of us. That is what the School of Greatness does, they help us create that new version of you and when paired with other books such as The Magic of Thinking Big and Podcasts like the MFCEO Project Podcast, we are able to develop that mindset that helps us win.
Don't work on our mindsets and we are guaranteed to lose, we don't lose. Only average people lose and we are not willing to be any part of that.
Seems easy, right? Are we hustling right though, that is the real question that will be answered here... There is good and bad hustle, learn the good hustle and you are golden, then use it to stick with your vision and stay on your path.
Hustle is what our success comes down to, not you or anyone else decides if we are hustling enough. The only true way to tell is through your results both in business and personal aspects of your life.
Not getting the results you want in business, not changing your life as much as you had hoped? Well maybe it is time to step up our game and learn how to hustle the right way in The School of Greatness.
We can't keep sitting around waiting for the perfect plan, planning out every aspect for months on end. Guess what, even after you have done all that you are absolutely nowhere until you start gaining the traction you need.
The perfect time is now and if you are procrastinating taking action maybe being an entrepreneur isn't what you were meat to be because if it is what you are meant to be we would be craving the hustle and loving every minute of the process.
Live A Life of Service.
Give, Give, Give, Give, Give, Give...
And don't expect anything in return. This is the true path to success, not chasing the money.
When you offer so much value it not only allows you to gain traction and become that go to guy in your niche, it helps to put you in a position to ask. Ask for the service that you offer or the product you have, when you offer so much value and others see it they will buy and become loyal.
Not sure HOW to offer so much value and live a life of service?
That is where the School of Greatness comes into play. Luckily for us, all successful entrepreneurs offer massive value and that is why they are so successful.. If they had no value they would be no where near where they are today.
Lewis Howes Interviews these entrepreneurs on the School of Greatness and almost everyone of them share how they bring massive value, ad then give strategies for us to start doing the same.
Lewis then complied those ideas into this book and that is where this chapter was created. One of our favorite chapters in the School of Greatness.
How To Start Implementing The Ideas From The School of Greatness Into Your Life/ Business
The School of Greatness is a mix between a book on how to improve our lives and a business book which is why some might get confused on how to implement it into our lives...
We are here to help with that.
First off, Lewis offers coaching tips and knowledge at the end of every chapter that help us implement what we learned into our lives.
Along with the coaching tips, Lewis has exercises in the middle of the chapters to help us start executing and implementing the knowledge into our life or business.
A strategy that we at Profiting Tools personally use while reading books like this is to read a few chapters (or until you find 1-2 pieces of information that you want to start applying in your day to day life) and then focus on those for the next day. Think about them all day and try to implement them in everything you do.
Whether this be a business strategy that you can implement right away, or start to at least, or a piece of life advice or habit that you can start putting to use.
Just do this daily, challenge yourself and make shit happen. It doesn't just happen when you dream about it.
