How To Think Like a Superhero by Robin Sharma

How to think like a superhero

 

I found this video that Robin Sharma had Tweeted the other day. It really is worth your time to watch. It’s called How To Think Like A Superhero.

Robin Sharma wrote one of my favorite books The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari and the best selling The Leader Who Had no Title.

In the video he talk about thinking like a superhero. His thesis is that super successful people, CEOs, celebrities etc. aren’t more special than you or me but that they have a far superior work ethic than the average person. He says at one point that these successful people he’s interviewed and worked with can accomplish in a day what most people do in a month.

The secret to success is that there is no secret to success, there’s no way around it, you have to work hard at it. But if you do work hard, and focus on a goal, you will accomplish it.

You should pick up some Shwarma and sit down and read some Robin Sharma.

The Most Difficult Thing to Explain to Someone From the 1950’s

In a recent Six Pixels of Separation podcast, Mitch Joel tells Seth Godin about a question with an amusing answer he saw on Reddit that week.

If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about life today?

If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about life today?

One of the best answers was:

Reddit - I possess a device, in my pocket, that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and get in arguments with strangers.

Really makes you think about how far we’ve come and yet so many people never really use the internet to its full potential.

What do you think?

 

 

I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden…

Who am I?

I am your constant companion.

I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.

I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.

I am completely at your command.

Half the things you do, you might just as well turn over to me and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed, you much merely be firm with me. Show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.

I am the servant of all great men and women and alas of all failures as well. Those who are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I am not a machine, thou I work with all the precision of a machine, plus the intelligence of a human being.

You may run me for profit or run me for ruin, it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who am I?

Your habits.

When I first read this I instantly loved it. In life on our way to achieving our goals we have the choice to develop habits that propel us in the right direction or habits that drag us down and push us in the opposite direction. It’s ultimately up to you to develop the most positive habits throughout life, they make all the difference.
