Turn simple disciplines into massive success and happiness.

“Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.” ~ Albert Einstein

You have complete control over the direction that the rest of your life takes.

Humans are creatures of habit. Every day, we make simple decisions: what to eat, should we exercise, should I call my parents, should I read my book, etc. Are the decisions you are making helping your life? Or are they detrimental to your life? Are they bringing you closer to your goals? Or are you still a long time away from achieving those goals?

I’m going to share with you a simple formula for success , and my life philosophy.

Back last February, I read the book, The Slight Edge.

Essentially, the slight edge is your philosophy of life. The slight edge is your driving force; your philosophy creates your attitudes, which creates your actions, which creates your results, which create your life. You should live your philosophy each day. By performing tasks which will are located on the path to your goals, you can achieve anything.

In the past year, I’ve achieved wild success. I earned $107,000 in 2017, I’m growing my blog, my actions are aligned with my values and purpose, and I’ve never been happier.

The Slight Edge principles are so simple, and yet so difficult. Consistency is key!

I’ve been successful applying The Slight Edge principles, but I’m just one person. That’s why I’ve invited the person who suggested the book to me on to the show – to share his experience applying the same principles.

My guest, Dom, is a highly motivated individual who has chosen to be the VICTOR, not the victim. He has climbed the corporate ladder and became a C-suite executive by the age of 30 by applying the Slight Edge principles, has a successful blog at Gen Y Finance Guy and is shooting for a $10 million net worth!

I really enjoyed having Dom on the show. There were so many great takeaways from this conversation:

  • Providing immense value will lead to increased compensation. Also, it’s important to ask for more money!
  • Make your world so big that everyone and anyone in your life can have whatever they desire.
  • Look and be open to opportunities where we can take calculated risks and execute for the reward.
  • It doesn’t matter where you start – it matters where you end. Each and every day, we have an opportunity to become better.

  1. Great stuff, guys! I had the benefit of reading The Slight Edge when I was 18 or so and it has had an enormous impact on my life and my finances. The small things, when done consistently, really do compound over time.

  2. Very interesting discussion guys

    Understand the ‘why’ now:

    “How can I make my world so big that myself, my family and everyone I care about can have anything and everything they ever desired?”

    I think that for any big goals you want to achieve in life you need to think about the ‘why’ – why work out, why work 60, 70, 80 hours a week, why save when you could spend today etc…

    Also the point about making sure you execute is an important one. It’s true that ideas are cheap, it’s execution and implementation that separates the dreamers from those that dominate the tasks they turn their hands to.
