Ep 84. Brendon Burchard Demystifies Your Road to Greatness
Last week I teased you with a special mystery guest, and I’m happy to reveal that Brendon Burchard is joining me on the show this week! Brendon really dropped some knowledge on me, and here are just a few takeaways:
- If you really want to make progress, you must have clarity. Identify the ONE thing that you really need to focus on, or the thing that you need help with right now.
- How can you adopt a successful mindset? If you aren’t yet where you want to be, look inward at how you can put yourself around the right people, or change your mindset, or learn the skills that you need to learn in order to move forward.
- When you knock on the door of opportunity, it is work that answers. So work!
Brendon Burchard is one of the most watched personal development trainers in the world, and a Top 100 Most Followed Public Figure on Facebook. Over 50,000,000 people watched his videos in the last 12 months, more than 30,000,000 see his posts every week on Facebook, and 1,000,000-plus students have completed his online courses or video series, making him “one of the most successful online instructors in history” (Oprah.com).
A #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, #1 Amazon, and #1 USA Today bestselling author, his books include The Motivation Manifesto, The Charge, The Millionaire Messenger, and Life’s Golden Ticket. Brendon is also star and executive producer of the #1 self-help series on YouTube, and his podcast The Charged Life debuted at #1 on iTunes.
At the age of 19, Brendon was depressed and suicidal after a breakup with his first love. Then a car accident inspired him to turn his life around and begin a life studying personal development. Soon people would say, “Your story and approach to life is inspiring, why don’t you write a book or start a blog?” He listened. By 27, he left his safe corporate job, but quickly went broke chasing his dreams to be a writer. By 32, he became a #1 bestselling author and, as an early pioneer in the online education space, a multimillionaire and widely followed video blogger. Since then, he has scaled his message to unprecedented levels and dedicated his life to helping others find their charge and share their voice with the world.
