Elite Man Podcast


It’s not all about your physical talent. It’s not all about the work you’re willing to put in. Although let’s face it, that matters too. A very important part about success is how you think about yourself.


Cultivate the right state of mind

In any big moment in your life, Super Bowl, a big interview or a presentation, you will always default back to the most dominant habit you’ve cultivated over the years. That is why it is important to get to a state of mind where the best possibilities are at the forefront of your consciousness.You can’t just turn this state of mind on and off with a switch.

You have to cultivate it: You have to exercise the confidence muscle to build up a mental bank account of experiences that create energy and enthusiasm.

Exercises to improve how you think about yourself

Exercises to improve how you think about yourself

  • Screen your memories for things that are uplifting and build a diary of small successes. What are the highlights of your career? Allow these memories that produce energy, optimism and enthusiasm, to be more upfront in the consciousness.
  • Work on your thought processes about yourself. What are the constructive stories you tell about yourself? Look for ways to think about how you want to be as if you are there already.
  • Think about your future in the right way. Ensure that those thoughts are what you want to happen. If it is about what can go wrong, include how to get back in the game.

How to be the best version of yourself

How to be the best version of yourself

You become the best version of yourself when you get yourself to a state of mind that allows your talent and training to express itself freely.

We have to learn to be certain about ourselves and believe that we are enough at this moment without second-guessing ourselves.

"This Is my moment."

"I am the guy for this job."

"This is my opportunity to pull away from the crowd."

It’s telling yourself that you are in this moment as good as you need to be in order to win the moment.


You want to make sure your thoughts and attitude influence your performance, but you never let your performance influence your thoughts or your attitude.


How to get a confident mind

How to get a confident mind

  • Don’t think of yourself as just a plain regular guy. You are unique; you have talents; you have something special about yourself. Find it.
  • Don’t compare yourself with someone on a tv screen. Instead, start looking for the best in yourself. What excites you? What are you good at in your own career?

Success is the peace of mind that comes from the satisfaction that you did the best with what you had. Whatever that is.

Building confidence with ESP

  • E - Effort: Look back at your day. Ask yourself where did you give quality effort today? Where did you overcome procrastination? Where did you show effort?
  • S - Success: What did you do right today?
  • P - Progress: What do you get better at? Where do you show progress?

Then ask yourself: What do I want to get at tomorrow? What do I want to attack tomorrow? What’s next?

The key to getting past natural uncertainty

The key to getting past natural uncertainty

You won’t have that sense of certainty about yourself unless you’ve done the work to build it up over the course of your training. If you have been diligent in your study or training, that is what makes you confident.

It is important to put yourself in a training crucible so you get practice responding to fatigue, responding to a mistake, responding to a setback constructively. You can’t let a negative moment dominate you. Your training should include stepping up knowing how to get it right.

Building confidence in any area of your life

  • Take baby steps in the new area.
  • While you are working on your skills, reflect on the quality of your efforts.
  • Acknowledge small successes as you build those skills.

Absolutely love this app ever since I started using it couple of months ago. And very highly recommend using this app for anyone who likes to gain knowledge on numeral topics with short bursts of information.


Great to grasp concepts, succinct & straight to the point. Ideal for bite-sized learning. Easily my favorite way to research topics I'm interested in prior to delving into these further. Highly recommended.


Deepstash is the golden app with a dash of diamonds that I look forward to opening up each day to find new treasures for my mind... Thanks Deepstash keep dropping new gold diamond nuggets into the stashpot.
