Today is my 42nd birthday. Here are 42 things I’ve learned. Business, relationships, and life:
💎 🧵 ⚔️
1. Write letters to your parents sharing your thoughts on your childhood, both angry and happy. Send the happy ones.
2. There is no such thing as being overdressed. There is only making other people feel under-dressed.
3. Don’t manage your own money unless you’ve trained your whole life to do so. Better to focus on making more money, while letting someone who has trained their whole life to do so manage what you make.
Do you want people to pay attention when you have something to say? Or get more views and shares on your posts and videos?
I used to constantly struggle with this. I’d write what I thought was a great blog and no one would read it. Or I’d make a great video & no one would watch
2/ That all changed when I discovered a secret that master storytellers - the ones who win competitions for telling the best story - used to grab the attention of a crowd. I broke it down into 4 parts and now I use it just about everywhere
3/ I’m going to share it with you right now, the same formula I recently shared at Sean Stephenson’s speaker training event. Write it down - you’ll be able to use it in blogs, videos, Instagram posts, speeches, you name it
