    🔑 Key Takeaways

    • Always push for one more step, habit or mindset change to achieve success and happiness. Have a clear vision for your life and remember that when you feel like you've exhausted all options, you haven't.
    • Our perception of our goals can create patterns that keep them out of reach. But, opportunities can be just one conversation away. Believe in them and filter in people that can help.
    • No matter how difficult life may seem, through love and determination, we can turn our struggles into strengths and help others who are experiencing similar challenges. Every small step towards growth is important.
    • Focus on creating something new and exciting for your future by staying present and having a vision. Surround yourself with supportive people who ask about your goals rather than reminisce about the past.
    • Don't let nostalgia hold you back from creating a brilliant future. Appreciate the present and fight for every moment with the people you love.
    • Make the most of our time by focusing on creating a future, telling loved ones we care, and finding inner peace as a priority. Valuing those who matter and finding joy in every moment is crucial.
    • Set emotional standards aligned with goals, practice intentional and outcome-oriented emotions for a fulfilling life, embrace the power of "one more" for success.
    • Make small promises to yourself and raise your standards to gain the confidence to persevere through difficult times, whether it's building a business or simply telling loved ones how you feel.
    • By consistently stepping outside our comfort zone and aligning our actions with our values and goals, we can develop self-confidence and believe that we deserve success based on our actions, not just talent. Regular self-reflection is important to ensure we are moving in the right direction.
    • Take time to periodically evaluate your ambitions and desires to ensure they match your current values and priorities. Life is a journey with different seasons, embrace each season and focus on what matters to you now.
    • Greatness doesn't have to be big. Every individual has the potential to make a difference in someone's life through small acts of kindness. Success doesn't define greatness; it's the impact we have on others that truly matters.
    • Life can feel like hitting a pinata, blindfolded and without progress. But every effort is compound pounding progress. Don't give up on your dreams, because the power of one more hit can make all the difference.

    📝 Podcast Summary

    Jay Shetty Recommends "The Power of One More" for Achieving Success and Happiness

    Jay Shetty recommends reading "The Power of One More," a book by Ed Mylet that explores the mindset of always pushing for one more step, one more habit, or one more mindset change to achieve success and happiness. Shetty, who has lived this principle in his own life, believes it has changed his life and can change others'. He shares a Thomas Edison quote that embodies this mindset: "When you feel you've exhausted all options, remember this: you haven't." Shetty and Mylet stress the importance of having a clear vision for your life and constantly striving for more.

    Perceiving Goals as Further Away Than They Are.

    We often perceive our goals and aspirations to be further away than they actually are, and this perception can lead us to create patterns and behaviors that perpetually keep them out of reach. However, the truth is that we are often just one relationship, one meeting, one conversation, or one new tactic away from completely changing the trajectory of our lives. By adopting an expectation that these opportunities exist and believing that we are capable of seizing them, our minds begin to filter in the people, places, and things that can help us achieve our goals.

    The Power of "One More" and Transforming Pain into Purpose.

    The power of "one more" and the ability to change are two valuable lessons that can be learned from Ed MyLett's personal experience. Love and determination can overcome obstacles and help people transform their lives. The things we are most ashamed of or embarrassed by can actually qualify and empower us to help others who are going through similar struggles. Pain can turn into purpose if we use it to serve and help others. By growing as a person, we can become better equipped to help those who used to be like us.

    Unlocking Your Imagination and Vision for a Happier Future

    Operate out of your imagination and vision, rather than being tied to the outcome. People often get stuck in their history and memory, and as a result, they limit themselves from imagining new possibilities. Instead of focusing on past successes or failures, focus on creating something new and exciting for your future. One way to tell if the people around you are supportive is if they ask about your vision and what you want to create, rather than always reminiscing about the past. By staying present and having a vision for the future, you can break free from limiting patterns of thought and belief and create a happier, more fulfilling life.

    The Power of Focusing on a New Future and Living in the Present.

    Focus on creating a new future instead of living in the past. Nostalgia can make us believe that the past was better than it actually was, and this can lead to a lack of creativity and productivity. Instead, we should strive to create a brilliant, imaginative, curious, and vibrant vision for our lives. The story of Kobe Bryant also highlights the importance of living in the present and finding love for something now. One day can be incredibly powerful, and we should cherish every moment and be willing to fight for it, even if it means enduring pain and suffering, to have one more day with the people we love.

    Cherishing Moments and People in Our Lives

    Cherish every moment and every person in our lives because we never know when it could be our last day or their last day. We should spend our time being present and creating a future rather than dwelling on the past. We should tell those we love that we love them and make things right with those who matter to us. Time is valuable, and we should make the most out of every minute by finding bliss and productivity. Lastly, we should focus on finding inner peace as a priority.

    How Meditation & Emotions Impact Our Lives | Ed Mylett's Story

    Ed Mylett, a motivational speaker and author, talks about how meditation has helped him find peace and clarity in his life. He emphasizes the importance of setting emotional standards that align with our goals and how our emotional home impacts our daily lives. By being intentional and outcome-oriented with our emotions, we can create a more fulfilling life. Ed also shares the story of how a challenging time in his business led him to embrace the power of "one more," which has been a driving force in his success.

    Overcoming Adversity and Building Confidence with Ed Mylett

    Ed Mylett shares his personal struggle of losing everything and being ashamed of his situation. He was ready to give up on his dreams, but his father's advice to not quit for just one more day kept him going. Ed persevered, and 30 days later, he didn't feel like quitting anymore. He encourages people who may lack self-confidence due to their past to keep making promises to themselves and to raise their standards to gain the confidence they need to keep going. This mindset and way of life can be applied to all aspects of life, from building a business to telling loved ones that we care about them.

    Developing Self-Confidence through Small Daily Actions

    Self-confidence is not something that always comes easy, but it can be developed by taking small actions every day that are outside of our comfort zone. By doing one more call, one more meeting, or reading one more book, we become convinced that we deserve success based on our actions, not necessarily our talent. However, it's important to ensure that these actions are aligned with our values and goals. Checking in with ourselves regularly and asking what matters to us can help us avoid taking one more step in the wrong direction. Ultimately, what we believe we deserve in life is what we'll receive.

    Checking in on Your Dreams and Priorities

    It's important to check in with yourself periodically to ensure that your dreams and ambitions are still aligned with your current priorities, values, and desires. Don't be stuck operating from a past playbook or pursuing a dream that's no longer truly yours. Recognize that life is a journey with different seasons, and it's up to you to live each season well. Remember that you were born to do something great with your life and keep checking in to make sure that your current pursuits align with your greatness. Focus on what matters to you now and lean into your current season.

    The Impact of Small Acts of Kindness

    Greatness doesn't have to be big and that every person has the potential to do something awesome with their life. One kind act, like helping someone get sober, can be a great moment in someone's life. Being successful doesn't define greatness; it is the impact we have on others' lives that matters. It's essential to remind yourself that you matter and to ask yourself what you can do right now to make a difference. Don't be discouraged if you start small. The universe or God prepares you to step into the next room when you step in with faith.

    Keep Swinging: The Power of Progress

    Life is like hitting a pinata. Sometimes we feel blindfolded and swinging without progress, but that doesn't mean we should quit. Just like hitting a pinata multiple times, every effort we make is compound pounding progress. We may not see physical evidence, but if we keep swinging eventually, the candy will come out. People often give up on their dreams right before the candy comes out. We need to stick around and keep hitting our life's pinata. The power of one more hit can make all the difference. So let's keep swinging, and eventually, we'll see the results of our efforts.

    10 Steps on How To Set Boundaries Without Offending People

    10 Steps on How To Set Boundaries Without Offending People

    Are you struggling with setting your boundaries?

    Do you want to know how to respectfully tell others about your boundaries?

    Today, Jay questions the traditional notion that a "good person" is one who never says no. This outdated definition leads to a lack of boundaries, which ultimately harms personal well-being. By redefining what it means to be a good person, one can recognize the importance of investing in themselves and navigating difficult conversations.

    What does setting boundaries truly mean? They are defined not by what we want from others, but by what we need for ourselves. Jay explains that boundaries should not aim to control others but should protect the individual from their own triggers and provides practical advice on how to communicate boundaries effectively, suggesting the use of simple, clear statements without over-explanation.

    In this episode, you'll learn:

    How to set boundaries without feeling guilty

    How to NO effectively

    How to communicate boundaries clearly

    How to handle other people's reactions

    How to build confidence in setting boundaries

    Don't wait to reclaim your time, energy, and peace of mind—take control and become the assertive, self-respecting individual you deserve to be.
