by Robin Sharma
When we were much younger, we understood how to live. Staring at stars filled us us with delight. Running in a park made us feel alive. And chasing butterflies flooded us with joy.
Then, as we grew up, we forgot how to be human. We forgot how to be bold and enthusiastic and loving and widely alive. Our precious reservoir of hope faded. Being ordinary became acceptable. The lamp of our creativity, our positivity and our intimacy with our greatness grew dim as we began to worry about fitting in, having more than others and being popular.

Extreme Value Delivery
Extreme value delivery means giving others exponentially more benefit than they ever could expect from you. Because we reap what we sow
E1: Mindset (psychology)
Your thinking forms your reality and by improving your mind you'll improve your life. Your deepest beliefs drive your daily behaviour and the way you perceive the world drives the way you perform in it.
E2: Heartset (emotionality)
Even with battleproof beliefs and the distinguished thinking of a world-class Mindset, you won't win if your heart is full of toxic feelings. Working on your Heartset isn't only about removing negative emotions. It's also about amplifying the healthy ones.
E3: Healthset (physicality)
If you want to lead your field and experience continuous escalation of your eminence: do not die. Beautiful things happen once you commit seriously to peak fitness and go hard in cheating aging.
E4: Soulset (spirituality)
Every single one of us has an unstained spirit and spotless soulfulness that rests at our very center. Spend some time in quietude to make the return to courage, conviction and compassion within you.
The five primary assets that all superproducers defend are:
1. Mental Focus
2. Physical Energy
3. Personal Willpower
4. Original Talent
5. Daily Time
Protect these 5 assets by following The Tight Bubble of Total Focus Strategy which preserves your focus as well as your primal brilliance.
The best in the world have depth. Members of the majority often get stuck in a mindset of superficiality in their work. Their whole approach is light. No real preparation. Very little contemplation. Geniuses understand that it's smarter to create one masterwork than one thousand ordinary pieces.
The truth is that every challenging event you've experienced, each toxic person that you've encountered and all the trials you've endured have been perfect preparation to make you into the person that you are now.
The seduction of complacency and an easy life is one hundred times brutal, ultimately, than a life where you go all in and take an unconquerable stand for your brightest dreams.
Hard is good. Real greatness and realization of your inherent genius is meant to be a difficult sport. Only those devoted enough to go to the fiery edges of their highest limits will expand them.
Never delay your peacefulness. Your life can fall apart within an hour. Accidents, illness, loss and death happen every day. It's human nature to think these things will never occur. Yet all wise philosophers teach us of the transience of our existence.
Tomorrow is a promise, not a fact. Enjoy every morning and appreciate each day you have on Earth. Take bold risks yet hedge them with common sense. balance living like there is no tomorrow with behaving like you'll live forever. So that when the end does come, you'll know you lived your life as a majestic testimony to the capacity for legendary.
Every one of us carries an instict for excellence within our spirits. No one needs to stay frozen in average and succumb to the mass mediocratization of behaviour evident in society along with the collective de-professionalization of business so apparent in industry. Limitation is nothing more than a mentality that too many good people practice daily until they believe it's reality. We need to remember that our excuses are seducers, our fears are liars and our doubts are thieves.
You can fit in. Or you can change the world. You don't get to do both.
