RE: How to Achieve Greatness, Mastery and Enduring Fulfillment interview of Robin Sharma by Joe Polish. Personal notes below by Tom Beal.
My morning ritual consists of me walking to the beach every morning which is a 1 hour round trip journey. On that journey I listen to numerous podcasts (at 2x speed) and/or Audible audiobooks (at 3x speed), and have recently begun taking notes on my iPhone while I walk (that must be fun to observe to the drivers by). Can picture several texting, “Look at that idiot walking & texting!” while driving. 🙂
Today I tapped into one of 2 podcasts that I listen to put on by Joe Polish (I Love Marketing & 10XTalk) and found myself stopping on MANY occasions to take notes from the wisdom that Joe’s guest Robin Sharma was sharing. (Joe snuck some good nuggets in, as well.)
Normally, I share my notes with my personal clients only, but today was too good not to share with you here. So below, you will see the video of Joe interviewing Robin and below that will be the notes I took while conducting my morning walk to the beach and back home.
My NOTES while walking: 5am club rituals. Always do: 20/20/20 the person who sweats more in training bleeds less in battle. 1st 20 is intense exercise, 2nd 20 is plan, 20 learning He who learns most wins.
Great student and teacher. Be an instrument of service
So much of an addiction to the shiny toys. None provide sustainable happiness and fulfillment. That all comes from inner power. Do hit best to birth your talents to the world. Do not care or be addicted to what the world thinks of you.
What do I want to stand for? Lead a meaningful & authentic life.
Can either be a victim or a leader. Can lead without a title. Way of thinking and being is being a leader.
Words reveal our beliefs. I can! Possibility. Stop giving away your power.
Leave what’s safe. Get rid of excuses. Own responsibility.
It’s not talent, it’s practice, social circle, inner drive and commitment is what genius & success is. Redundancy.

Find your passion.
If you’re around energy vampires it will seep into you.

Incons are not cut from a different cloth
Goal setting. Vague goals bring vague results. What needs to happen to make this my best year ever? What are 5 daily wins I can have each day?
Periods of in the pocket and blessed. Then recalibration years.
Life has things that work and things that don’t work.
The Greatness Guide. We’re all works in progress. I’m not a guru.
Moment I sold my Ferrari
Most hero’s are frightened little boys and girls.
Love and serve. Not ego and bank account. Focused, fit, keep promises.
Define life on your own terms.
Your income will never exceed your self identity.
Your core beliefs and identity.
You are not your fears. They’re your greatness coming to get you.
Energy is your asset. Fitness, diet.
Social network. People who push you and believe in you.
Enthusiasm covers many deficiencies.
On death bed: 1. Did you leverage your potentials? 2. How many people did you lift up?
You can do so much more than you think you can.
The Titan Summit (every year).
What makes a legend versus a fad? The Titans decline. The moment you think you know everything is the beginning of the end.
Prayer, affirmation, walking in nature.
If attention is off of creativity, service, and lifting people up, you’re off base.
Bravery is a skill! Be confident, be loving.
Bring your A game every day! Lead without a title. Put effort forward. Get your architecture in place. Be all about creating value. Innovation, not complacency. How can I Ben is products out that scare me?
Pain is the result of potential unexpressed.
People are addicted to phones, tv’s.
Had so much focus on love. Then we see icons as cut by a different cloth, and feel broken hearted.
If people aren’t laughing at you you’re playing too small.
Lead the Field. Once I got the person together the world came together.
If you feel small & powerless. Forgive yourself and others.
Eat the right foods, work out, hire a coach to show up at house. Spiritual life. Find your cause.
How do you want to be remembered? I don’t care. Legacy is an ego trap.
Who cares. Leave better than when I found them. Contribute value, while I can.
Trade offs. Profile rises: you’ll bring up the haters. Can pursue your vision or be liked; can’t do both.
Nothing tastes as great as feeling fit feels.
Leader has no title. ***End of NOTES.
We live in a day and age that is quite amazing! With the smart phones in our pockets or hands and ear buds in our ears, we can tap into minds that people pay very large amounts of money to for the wisdom, insights, and information they possess at no charge.
My hope is that my personal notes & the incredible interview video above assisted you in gaining some clarity on how to step more into your own awesomeness, share your talents with this world, and lift many more up along your journey. Your best is yet to come!
Make Today Great!
