How you feel about yourself can come down to how you’re measuring your progress, and there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Dr. Ben Hardy discuss The Gap And The Gain™, the thinking tool they’ve turned into a major market book.
Here's some of what you'll learn in this episode:
• Why measuring yourself against an ideal means you’ll never be happy or satisfied.
• How to gain an invaluable internal referencing system.
• How to let yourself fully appreciate where you are.
• What you need to do in order to be successful long-term.
Against perfection: Going into “The Gap” comes from measuring yourself against perfection, whatever that is in your mind.
Where you were: When you’re in “The Gain,” it means you’re measuring against where you were before in order to recognize your progress.
Too many problems: Some books try to solve too many problems.
Society and culture: Our society and culture train us to be in The Gap, not The Gain.
Transform any experience: You have the ability to turn any experience into growth and progress.
