Your Self-Worth

Lisa Nichols talks about her process for enriching your self-worth:

You’re only going to go as far as you think you’re worthy. I can push, you can push, you can have the greatest product — but if you don’t feel worthy, you will work hard to sabotage that relationship.

You don’t know you’re doing it! You’re driving that guy away, you’re driving that woman away — because your self-worth says they weren’t going to stay forever, anyway.


I did this for six months, every single day.

It’s the “I see you” exercise.

You get in the mirror and you complete three different sentences.

1. The first sentence is you look in the mirror, and you say your name. You say:

_________, I am proud that you…

…and find seven different things every day to celebrate yourself for.

Seven different. Each day you can do the same thing you did before, but each day do seven different things to be proud of.

2. The second sentence is going to knock you down a bit, it’s going to come from your gut:

_________, I forgive you for…

…and cut the shackles to blame, shame, guilt, regret, and anger.

In that sentence, you cut those five shackles. Not the first day, maybe not the third day… but by the twenty-first day, by the thirtieth day, you’ll feel some relief.

Go back five years, fifteen years, twenty years… that thing nobody knows about, but you? Go ahead and cut those shackles. Cause if you can still think about it, it’s still in your energy space.

3. And then the third sentence is:

_________, I commit to you that…

Before you make a commitment to anybody else throughout your day, you make seven commitments to you.


Celebrate yourself. Forgive yourself. Cut the shackles.

And then, commit to yourself, before you commit to anybody else.

That right there — that right there, will begin to fill your cup up.

Stay Hungry

Lewis Howes and Tony Robbins talk about success, hunger, and drive:

Howes: With all the tools you’ve learned, the wealth of information over 39 years … the strategies to help people overcome their challenges … if you had to strip them all away and you could only use one strategy, what would that be?

Robbins: I wouldn’t. Part of why I’m effective is cause I don’t buy that. I’m always looking for more strategies, cause one strategy will work for one person, not with another.

But philosophically… I would say that the capacity to strengthen and increase your hunger is the one common demoninator amongst the most successful people. Richard Branson’s a good friend of mine. Peter Guber, Steve Wynn… all these guys, they never lost their hunger.

Most people are hungry to achieve a certain amount, make a certain amount of money, and then they get comfortable and relax. Or to get a certain level of fitness, and then they relax. But you know, Richard is as driven today as when he was 16 years old. He’s on fire! And he’s 65 years old. Warren Buffett is 85 years old. He’s as driven today as when he began the journey.


There’s a lot of intelligent people that can’t fight their way out of a paper bag. Hunger is the ultimate driver. If you’re hungry, you can get the strategy, get the answer… if you can’t model it, you can find it.

Modeling would be the next best skill. Knowing that success leaves clues, why re-invent the wheel? … Why would I go learn by trial-and-error, and maybe take 10 or 20 years, when I could learn from somebody in a few weeks or a few months or a few hours something that could save me a decade.

That’s what it is. That’s why I read 700 books in the first seven years. If somebody takes 10 years of their life, they pour it into a book, and I can read that in an hour or two or three or four, why wouldn’t I?

Tony Robbins, on the Tim Ferriss podcast:

It’s fascinating to see that in every industry, in every sport, there are a few players that play at the highest level, and they have one thing above everyone else: hunger. It’s an unquenchable hunger. Every one of these people has that.

It’s Your Life

Lewis Howes and Lisa Nichols talk about life, decisions, and abundance:

Nichols: Abundant thinkers think a certain way. And they don’t go around trying to convert you. People like you and I go, let’s open it up to everyone…

Howes: Yeah.

Nichols: … but here’s what I know about the human spirit. It’s that the human spirit has the power of choice. And most people don’t want to choose this kind of thinking because it costs you something.

Howes: What’s the cost?

Nichols: The cost is you got to get up earlier. You get up earlier than the average guy. Your day… What you do in a day is what some people do in a week. What you do in the morning is what some people do in a 12-hour day.

You got to be willing.

What you’re willing to do on your book tour, to get on The New York Times — Some people say, “I got to do all that? I don’t want to do all that.”

Ok, great. Then have your life. You sign up for your life experience.

When I realized that I was the culmination of all my decisions… That’s like straight with no chaser. That’s like getting it with no cookies and milk.

You are a culmination of all your decisions.
