If you want to be rewarded, you have to be irreplaceable.
If you want to be irreplaceable, you have to be unique.
If you want to be unique, you have to be authentic.
If you want to be authentic, stop listening to everyone and everything else.
It’s drowning “you” out.

Doctors won’t make you healthy.
Nutritionists won’t make you slim.
Teachers won’t make you smart.
Gurus won’t make you calm.
Mentors won’t make you rich.
Trainers won’t make you fit.
Ultimately, you have to take responsibility.

Work out when you don’t need to.
Build skills when you don’t need to.
Eat healthy when you don’t need to.
Travel around when you don’t need to.
Build relationships when you don’t need to.
Seek better jobs when you don’t need to.
It’s too late if you wait till you need it.

Apple, Amazon and Microsoft, make up more than 16% of the S&P 500 Index and over a third of the Nasdaq 100 Index.
Together they are now valued at nearly $5 trillion.
That’s larger than the entire economy of Germany and roughly the size of the Japanese economy.
Your brand is just a lagging indicator of who you are.

The best exercise is the one you enjoy doing every day.
The best health food is the one you find tasty.
The best work is the work you’d do for free.
