THE CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK

When I was a child, I used lies to construct the world I wanted to live in. And it transformed me into a lonely man. But it also helped me build the life I wanted once I realized what I was doing wrong.

Being in the top 1% of people in any niche means learning many things. And these 7 essential personality traits might help you.

  • Think like a winner.
  • Obsess over repetition.
  • Think like the main character.
  • Burn with desire.
  • Focus on your strengths.
  • Build a backstory.
  • And speak with confidence.
