Mastering Complexity with Dane Barlow (Part 2)

The first steps toward high-level achievements and breakthroughs are seemingly simple—and yet surprisingly hard to consistently execute.

(If you haven’t heard the first part, make sure to listen to it now.) This is an incredibly powerful conversation, and I know you will get so much out of it.

  • “Medals aren’t awarded to people who aren’t ALREADY champions. They’re awarded to people who have already fought that fight.”
  • “You can sit in a room full of millionaires and pick out which ones have that spark. It’s not the money—when you have or have seen it, you start to recognize it.”
  • “It’s not hard to get to the top. The problem is staying there.”
  • “Quit comparing yourself to other people. Compare your journey to yourself. Are you further along than you were yesterday?”
