  • - [Instructor] If you want to live a life that is filled

  • with wealth, love, joy and happiness,

  • then you need to learn these six critical habits.

  • Because these are the habits

  • that will truly make you successful.

  • I want you to imagine that you're preparing

  • for a big hiking trip that will take you

  • a long time to complete.

  • You're really motivated to do everything the right way,

  • so you pack your food, your water, your mosquito spray,

  • your bear spray, your medicine.

  • You have thought of pretty much everything.

  • The only problem is, is that you're still not sure

  • where you want to go.

  • So you start to ask your family and your friends.

  • And they tell you to hike up this mountain

  • called the Blue Mountain,

  • because that's what most people do,

  • and most people claim that they like it there.

  • So without giving it a ton of thought,

  • you tell yourself, "Okay, if everyone else

  • "is telling me to go there, it must be good."

  • The next day you set out on your epic hike.

  • There's lots of challenges along the way,

  • and there are even times where you felt

  • beaten down and exhausted, but you kept your head down,

  • and you pushed forward.

  • And finally, after all the work, you finally get to the top,

  • and you're about to take in that amazing view

  • that you worked so hard to see.

  • You open your eyes, you look outside,

  • and you don't really like what you see.

  • In fact, you think to yourself,

  • "I don't even like mountains that much.

  • "Why am I even here?"

  • You then go to your phone,

  • and then you see a picture on Instagram

  • from somebody who decided to take

  • a totally different hiking trip.

  • And they ended up on this remote beach

  • that almost nobody goes to, but it looks beautiful.

  • And you think to yourself,

  • "Man, I would way rather be at that beach."

  • But in order to go to that beach now,

  • you have to walk all the way back the way you came.

  • It's possible, but it will take a ton of time,

  • and even more work.

  • The mountain you choose to hike is similar to your life.

  • Having the bear spray and the water and the medicine

  • are like having traits like self-discipline and work ethic.

  • It's great, it gets you to your destination faster,

  • and it's essential for success,

  • but none of that really matters

  • if you choose the wrong mountain to hike

  • or the wrong life to live,

  • meaning your career, your love partner, etc.

  • The first thing that you need to do before anything else

  • is to become self-aware and figure out where you want to go.

  • You can always change your mountain later on in life,

  • but it's way easier and better

  • to figure that out in the first place.

  • The second habit is simply taking action.

  • No matter what it is that you want to achieve

  • in this lifetime, it will require action.

  • Do you want to make a million dollars?

  • Well, you will have to learn how to start a big business.

  • You don't know how to start a big business?

  • Take action and figure out how to start a small business.

  • Then slowly work your way up.

  • But not taking action will just lead you

  • to staying exactly where you are right now.

  • You cannot think your way towards success.

  • And this leads us to the third habit, investing in yourself.

  • Investing in yourself could be watching a YouTube video,

  • it could be buying a book

  • or buying a course, or hiring a coach.

  • It could even be investing all of your money

  • into hiring the best coach in the world.

  • It's up to you how far you want to take it.

  • But anyone who is successful invest in themselves

  • every single day in some kind of way.

  • The fourth habit is getting a mentor.

  • You might've seen a small, bearded man with glasses

  • talk a lot about this, and he also talks

  • about how important--

  • - Knowledge-- - Is.

  • But the real reason why you should get a mentor,

  • is not because you can't figure it all out on your own.

  • In fact, I personally think you can.

  • But getting a mentor is just a way

  • to save you a ton of time, and it'll get you

  • where you want to go a lot faster.

  • When I started doing YouTube, I worked with a coach

  • who charged me like $500 per hour.

  • And at first, this seems like a lot of money.

  • But that one-hour phone call saved me

  • about six to eight months

  • of me working full time on YouTube,

  • trying to figure it all out on my own.

  • So, that's 40 hours per week,

  • which comes to 160 hours per month,

  • multiply that by seven months,

  • and that comes to over 1,000 hours.

  • Would you spend $500 to save 1,000 hours?

  • I would, after all, time is our most valuable asset.

  • The next two habits are really important, so listen closely.

  • The fifth habit is listening.

  • If you're reading a worldly recognized book

  • or talking to a really successful mentor,

  • you should listen to what they have to say.

  • Now, of course, you should never just blindly listen

  • to what some random book says,

  • or what some random YouTuber says,

  • but if they're successful

  • and their advice makes sense to you,

  • you should at the very least try it

  • and then see what happens.

  • The sixth habit is having faith and trusting the process.

  • I've personally coached and worked with some YouTubers

  • since I've started doing this channel.

  • And many of them give up way to early,

  • even though a lot of them

  • are actually doing the right things.

  • And as a coach, this is really sad for me to see.

  • Because I know that if they keep going,

  • and they trust my advice, they will eventually succeed.

  • But a lot of them just become impatient, and they think

  • that the proven process doesn't work for them,

  • which of course is not true.

  • The process works for everyone.

  • If you follow it, you will succeed.

  • If you're consistently working towards a realistic goal,

  • and you're constantly course-correcting along the way,

  • meaning you're always trying to improve the process,

  • and not focusing a ton on the result,

  • it's impossible to not get to where you want to go.

  • If you're still watching this video,

  • I want you to know that I believe in you.

  • I believe that you can be successful.

  • I believe that you can win in your life

  • and make your dreams a reality.

  • But you just have to start believing in yourself

  • and taking action towards your goal.

  • If you want to get intensely motivated

  • to achieve your dreams, then click the video

  • on the screen right now, you won't regret it.

  • Thanks for watching, and I'll see you soon.
