THE EDGE - 6 Steps to Success #1

Reading Time: 4m 45s

I've had the privilege now, working with more than three million people living in events from more than 80 countries around the world. So at this stage, I got to tell you something. I could be an idiot, and I would know that there are certain patterns that cause people to be fulfilled, to be happy, to fit in, to be strong, to feel alive, to be vibrant, to have passion in their life, to do well financially. But even more importantly, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, in their health and their relationships. And there are also patterns to make people frustrated, overwhelmed, depressed, sad, lonely. That caused them to be struggling financially. struggling with their body, struggling intimately. And those patterns, they're not because there's something wrong with somebody. Because of a pattern that we're doing - and I spent a quarter of a century of my life basically studying the most successful people in the world and the most challenged, and figure out, what's the fastest way to create a change.

Basically, in developing the one thing that all people have in common to succeed their leaders. Because I don't care what style you are, I don't care if you're a mom, you're a great mom. You lead your child; you're not led by your child. Or a great dad. You're a great businessperson. You're a great salesperson. You're a great negotiator. You're great anything. You're a great human being. This has been my entire life's obsession. What makes the difference in people's lives and that leadership component. As I say, doesn't always mean somebody follows you, a leader.

Somebody lives life on their terms that you will never settle for less than you can be, or share,or give or create. It's not what we get that makes us happy, it's who we become. How we live our life, who we are as a person. People can take away all the things, but who do you become? No one can take away. And the problem is, most of us are trying to be something or not, and it isn't so much about change, about changing yourself. The change happens when you be yourself and know yourself. That's the hard part for most people. Then be thyself. Because, most of us in our lives out of a desire for respect, or achievement, or love, or connection, or something we've been trying to be. The way we think we have to be in order to get that love, respect, appreciation, whatever it is - we've been after at some unconscious level. And we've been doing it so long that we think that this is who we are. Because success without fulfillment is a failure. 

I can't tell you how many people I work with, who are supposedly the best in the world at what they do. And they have more money than they can spend. They have all these people that love and respect them and yet they're unhappy inside. Because if you want to know, what really keeps you alive, is when it's really you. And you may think you know who you are because you've been living a certain way, but I'll tell you how you'll know. You'll feel euphoric, you'll feel strong, you'll feel unlimited, you'll feel free.

I have seen three million people around this earth and 80 countries - I've seen just better than you can see. And there are only so many patterns and what you're going to find underneath all of this behavior is. We have the same needs. There are six human needs we're going to review tonight. When you understand what those needs are and which ones you are. Focusing on you start to understand why people do the crazy things they do, including you and I. And you begin to understand. "Hey, there might be a better way to meet my needs. I don't have to get caught up in this game of stress and frustration upset, or I could really help this person I care about, because I could see what's really going on part of what we want to accomplish here."

As leaders, we want to become practical psychologists. We want to understand what's really going on, so we can help, so we can make a difference, so we can transform. So yes, of course, you can do better in your business because the more you understand about what people need and want, but greater. You're going to be the better manager, a better leader, the better mom or dad, the better friend, and there's a better you. That's available when you understand what's driving you. But most of us are running patterns over and over again, and we want to free that up. To free it up, we got to break the pattern. We got to do things that are different, so we're going to do something different. I'm not here because I believe in positive thinking. If you think that's what I believe, you don't know much about me.

I'm not one of those people who believes you're supposed to go to your garden and chant, "there's no weeds, there's no weeds, there's no weeds!" But, "there's weeds right there, all right!" That's what I believe. Here's what I believe. I believe, if you really want to be effective, you got to tell the truth.
