How Your Role Models Relate To Your Business Motivations

SUMMARY: Every entrepreneur needs to be careful about who they choose as their role models. Your choices speak to your mindset, your business motivation, and your business success. In this episode, business coaches Dan Sullivan and Shannan Waller talk about why each of Dan’s five role models made the list. Here’s some of what you’ll learn in this episode: • The three categories that all five role models fit into. • How Euclid’s principles are timeless. • How the qualities of Dan’s role models influence his creation of Strategic Coach® thinking tools. • Things most people don’t know about Shakespeare. • The uniqueness and intelligence evident in Bach’s music. • The ways in which all five of Dan’s role models were entrepreneurs. SHOW NOTES: Your role models should have qualities you aspire to. The one law that really governs everything is that gravity respects no angle except a 90-degree angle. Our entire physical world has been based on one book by Euclid. You need to understand each one of Euclid’s principles before you can understand the next. Being exploited with food is better than dying from no food. The vast majority of great people are not widely recognized as great during their own time. Nobody in particular is in charge of the U.S. The rules are in charge. The pursuit of happiness is not the same as happiness. Being inspired by someone doesn’t mean trying to imitate them.

Mindsets create habits, and habits are things that work that have become automatic. ► Please take a moment to comment and let us know what you thought of this video. ► For more entrepreneurial tips and wisdom from Strategic Coach®: Facebook: Facebook: LinkedIn: Podcasts: Twitter: Blog: Guides: Website: Call 1.800.387.3206 from anywhere in North America, 0800 051 6413 from the UK, or 416.531.7399 locally and outside of North America.
