The Beauty of life is that we all have different stories, we all have separate roads to travel on, and we all learn separate lessons from life. These lessons that we learn from life help us in personal development and make us a better more focused human being. Often, these worthy lessons come in the form of challenges. These challenges provide us the opportunity to do something difficult and something we are uncomfortable with but all of that ultimately brings so much goodness in our life.  Today’s guest, Rock Thomas, is an entrepreneur whose childhood challenges proved for him a “blessing in disguise”.

Golden Nuggets from Episode:

  • We want to live full adventures life and don’t want to wait for the age of 65 to do really cool things. In order to achieve that you must create passive income vehicles; you cannot trade time for money forever.” - Rock Thomas
  • You need to be spending 30min a day at putting something intelligent in your brain not just TV/radio and you need to set some goals, have a plan and execute them. - Rock Thomas
  • You need to be able to reframe things when things go bad and you need to be able to increase your net worth not just your cash flow and develop assets.” - Rock Thomas
  • Be intentional about choosing people to spend time with; find out what their values are and then hangout with them.” - Rock Thomas
  • Surround yourself with great people that are going to encourage you.” - Rock Thomas
  • When you get like-minded people together, stuff that can happen is just unreal - Corey Barrier
  • When negative people are around you they are just your teacher. You have to decide to what level you want to graduate their lessons. - Rock Thomas
  • Your ability to say “yes” to things that are just outside of your reach is going to cause you to find courage and make you feel alive. Saying “yes” gets you into the conversation of possibility and most people say “no” because they don’t know the “how”, so they miss out on ton of opportunities. Remember that your “yes” can turn out to be a great opportunity” - Rock Thomas
  • Saying “yes”, trusting your intuition, and then figuring out the details and hows later is what allow you to continuously be in growth mode and get opportunities.” - Rock Thomas
  • Your perspective determines how your brain processes. - Corey Barrier
  • Our brain shuffles negative experience to the top of the brain and replay them over and over again and if you don’t consciously have practices of visualization, gratitude, and rituals then “I am not enoughness” rear its ugly head as a way to protect you from being embarrassed, humiliated, shamed, looking stupid, etc. So its work in process and it’s what we call personal development.- Rock Thomas
  • There are so many gifts in doing what is difficult in life instead of what we try to do these days, we are trying to make things so easy, so people don’t become a better version of themselves and they miss the whole point.”- Rock Thomas
