Building a lasting legacy requires learning how to succeed through others, but before you can do that, you have to show up as a leader.

 

We have been looking at how to develop our own leadership skills, and what we've learned from today's guest, Jocko Willink, has blown our minds – so we want to share it with you.

 

Jocko is the author of Extreme Ownership and a retired United States Navy SEAL commander (he was the commander of the titular sniper in the movie American Sniper). His stories will help shift your mindset about extreme ownership and discipline – and if you make these shifts, it will transform how you show up as a leader and your ability to deliver extraordinary results.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Imagine where you'll be in three months if you do this every day:

 

– Before you go to bed, write down the critical things you need to do tomorrow.

– Wake up early in the morning & exercise

– Attack that list and get those things done.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [7:10] Why there are no bad teams – only bad leaders.
  • [12:45] What it looks like when you enforce standards and take responsibility as a leader.
  • [25:30] How you can communicate more effectively with your team, and ensure understanding.
  • [29:40] How you can prioritize and execute (even in a stressful situation).
  • [36:25] Why hitting the snooze button is killing your dreams (and the ONE power habit that has given Jocko the greatest benefit).
  • [40:30] How you can take ownership of your day and control your emotions and outlook.
  • [52:45] How you can implement extreme ownership in your life.

Everyone has at least one person who truly matters to them... and many of us are doing ONE thing that is harming that relationship.

 

In The ONE Thing, Gary and Jay lay out the seven most important areas of your life: spirituality, physical health, personal, relationships, job, business, and finances. We often set goals around our jobs, businesses, and finances... but those are rubber balls, and if we drop them they can bounce back. Spirituality, physical health, personal life, and relationships are glass balls – if you drop one of them, it will shatter.

 

Lewis Howes is the New York Times Bestselling author of The School of Greatness and The Mask of Masculinity, and he joins the show to share why you are hurting your most valuable relationships and the ONE thing you can do to turn it all around.

 

We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.

 

Time is running out! Join us for our first live event:

  • What: The ONE Thing Goal-Setting Retreat
  • When: November 30th, 2017 - December 1st, 2017
  • Where: Austin, Texas
  • How: the1thing.com/event

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Lewis suggests you start by asking yourself this question: On a scale of 1 to 10, where am I at in my career, my intimate relationships, and my health?

 

Focus in on just one of those areas and ask yourself: what is the ONE thing I can do to improve that area this week?

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [8:10] How to make your relationships & conversations more meaningful to others.
  • [12:25] How masculinity can distort the way you express yourself (and, ultimately, harm others).
  • [16:50] The key to success, in life and relationships.
  • [18:00] How both men and women can identify when they're wearing masks, and then break past them.
  • [26:50] How you can balance thriving in work and at home.
  • [37:10] Why waiting to express yourself is one of the biggest mistakes that you can make in a relationship.
  • [42:00] How you can support your loved ones when they are wearing a mask.

Do you wake up every single day intentionally adding value to specific relationships?

 

Too many of us take our relationships for granted, and we aren't approaching our relationships with a strategy – but nurturing the relationships that matter most is an under-appreciated and transformative power habit.

 

Steve Sims has built a legacy out of forming relationships at a very high level. He is the author of Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen and the Founder of Bluefish, a concierge service for the elite of the elite. If you want to visit the Titanic, get married by the Pope, or have dinner at the footsteps of Michelangelo's David while being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, Steve is the man who can make it happen – and he can do that because of the relationships he has formed.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We want you to think intentionally about the people in your life. Write down a list of everyone you like, and if you write down a name that you actually don't like you will feel it in your gut. Put a star next to that person.

 

Then ask yourself a few questions about that person:

 

– What role do they serve (if they serve one at all)?

– What should that relationship look like moving forward? Maybe there shouldn't be a relationship at all.

– What's the ONE thing you can do, such that by doing it, will allow you to shift that relationship?

 

Have this conversation with yourself and take action – because, truly, you cannot afford not to.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [15:00] How you can overcome limiting beliefs (and why your limiting beliefs keep Steve in business).
  • [18:20] ONE simple strategy you can use to approach anyone and set yourself apart.
  • [32:30] Why the most successful individuals are usually looking for mentees (especially entrepreneurs).
  • [38:15] How you can use The Chug Test to assess your relationships and remove people who shouldn't be in your life.
  • [45:20] Why failure is a mindset – and how you can re-write the story that you've failed.

When Hurricane Harvey devastated southern Texas, we at Keller Williams canceled a national convention so we could focus on relief efforts.

 

We auctioned off the guest seat for an episode of the show, and Craig Goodliffe earned it with a very generous donation – but this conversation ended up being extremely valuable because Craig has been living The ONE Thing for years.

Most people are currently wasting at least 20% of their time – but you can take that time back, in less than 30 days.

 

Marc King is a regional director and coach within Keller Williams, which gives him a unique perspective when it comes to controlling our time. With his help, we created this training on overcoming some of the biggest challenges you have with your time and the easy way you can take back control of it.

 

This training ended up being really helpful for some members of the Keller Williams family, so we also wanted to share it with all of you.

  • If your 411 feels like a to-do list, can you make it a must-do list?
