A giant key to winning lies in beginning.
I was skiing this past week. Gorgeous snow. Lots of sun. Precious moments.
Trying to refuel after the big tour...
But one morning I witnessed something that broke my heart...
...a woman, who was clearly a beginner, was having trouble getting onto the chairlift.
She was with her son and just couldn't get the hang of it...
...she looked embarrassed...and a little beaten.
There were a group of men behind me. Mature people, I thought. Seasoned skiers, for
sure.
And they started ridiculing her! Out loud. Calling her an amateur. Making fun of her
attire. Saying things like "hey, take your time--we have nothing else to do" and "nice
backpack you have on there."
It was incredible. To see such rudeness. Such insensitivity. Such uncompassion for this
woman who needed help (and was being helped by the lift guards...known as "lifties" to
those of us who adore skiing).
I just couldn't believe how these humans operated. Bad manners. Zero decency. Pure mean.
This scene has stayed with me for two days.
It just has me thinking about the good and not so great in the world right now. And it
fired me up to write the following 10 Simple Rules for Being Nice.

Please read them, study them and–above all else–practice them… Rule #1: Think about
others before you think about yourself. Rule #2: Say “please”. Rule #3: Say “thank you”.
Rule #4: Smile. Rule #5: Say “sorry” when you need to say “sorry”. Rule #6: Turn off
your phone when you eat with your family. Rule #7: Be on time. No, be early. Rule #8:
Radiate optimism and make people feel good. Rule #9: Keep your promises. Rule #10: Be
humble. - See more at: http://www.robinsharma.com/blog/03/10-simple-rules-to-benice/#sthash.boabecqv.dpuf

of.

Don’t settle for anything less than excellence.

Big Idea: In a study published in NATURE, the data revealed that those participants who
acted with OVERconfidence within "an optimal margin of illusion" achieved far greater
results than those who performed at a level consistent with their usual ability.
Ok--so what does that mean for us? It means that the smart move is to step into a higher
mental vision of your best performance. Live in that "optimal margin of illusion." Be a
dreamer. A visonary. A rockstar in your own mind. That's not being foolish. Science now
confirms it's actually the most practical move you can make.

Why wait for a lucky break when you have the power to create your own luck?

ONE OF THE GREATEST KEYS TO SUCCESS
A key piece to playing at your absolute best as a leader (and as a person) is to ensure
that your daily schedule reflects your deepest values. Anything less is a flight from
integrity.
One of the exercises I’ve been taking our clients through at my “Leadership in Turbulent
Times” workshop is called “The 5 Main Values.” I take participants through a powerful
visualization where they visit themselves, not as they now are but as they want to be at
the end of their career. Then they record the main 5 values they will have wished they’d
worked under.
I wanted to share my own 5 Main Values with you. I hope you’ll share yours with me on

Twitter so we can continue this conversation. Anyway, here are the top 5 values I want to
work by and stay true to:
1. EXCELLENCE. I adore this word. My goal is to work at a level of excellence,
constantly refining my craft as an author and speaker – while delivering outrageous
values to our clients.
2. PASSION. Without passion, nothing great every gets built. Passion fuels innovation,
builds a fantastic team and makes the impossible possible. I want to express my passion
in all that I do. Otherwise, what’s the point?
3. SELF-MASTERY. You can’t be a better leader than you are a person. So every day, I work
intensely on developing my inner life. I read. I reflect. I write in a journal. I
exercise. And do all those things I need to do to express my best.
4. BEAUTY. I’m an aesthete. I love beauty in all forms. So I make the time to look for
beauty, in both expected and unexpected places. Interesting conversations are beautiful
to me; brilliantly designed products (think Apple) are beautiful to me. Great food,
fresh nature, cool architecture, a strong cup of coffee in the morning and modern art
are all some of the things that fill my life with a sense of beauty.
5. CONTRIBUTION. Leadership is about doing deeds that live on long after your death. I
want to do things that will help people awaken to the fact that, regardless of what they
do and where they are, they have the opportunity (and responsibility) to show leadership
in their work and at their life. Few things are important to me than feeling I’m making a
difference for people. And doing my part to build a better world.
Every second you spend thinking about what you don’t want is a second denying focus and
energy from getting what you do want.
If your goals aren't bold, you'll begin to get old!
Innovation starts with imagination. Use yours. Please.

Today, I walked near lions. Lesson: run away and you'll die. Same applies to your fears.
Being interested in too many things sets you up for being average at most things.

Your Perfect Day
Just recorded the latest video for The Monthly Coach program I do. One of the pieces was
on “The Perfect Day”. While nothing’s perfect in business and in life, recording what
your ideal day looks like is a smart move. Because with greater clarity comes better
choices.
What was the best day you’ve had in the past 12 months? What made it so special – and
unforgettable? What things were you doing that time that gave you those superior results?
Once you know what works, you can set about doing them with greater consistency. And
consistency is the generator of Mastery.
Here are 4 recommendations for a perfect day:
1. Get up early. Getting up early is a gift you give yourself – once you install the
habit. Yes, that’s hard at first but after a few weeks you’ll have more time for yourself
every morning – time to think/read/visualize/exercise and set yourself up for superb
results.
2. Run a schedule. I write more about this in The Greatness Guide where I say: “The things
that get scheduled are the things that get done.” Success and happiness don’t happen by
accident. No, they occur through conscious choice. Schedule your priorities and the most
important things in your life so you can get them done.
3. Stand in Gratitude. While there are so many things you could do to ensure a
great/perfect day, I find spending even 5 minutes in gratitude reshapes the way I
perceive my day. Please remember, stress and gratitude can’t share the same room. And
you’ll see more of what you pay attention to. So focus on best and block out the rest.
4. Growth. Much as we resist change, the fact is human beings are happiest when we are
growing. To live perfect days, do things that move you out of your comfort zone and into
your Discomfort Zone. A day with zero growth is a day unfully lived. Fears faced die
speedy deaths.
Perseverance trumps even intelligence. Stay with your dream well past when the world
thinks you should!
Change is so messy in the middle but so fantastic at the end. Stay strong my friend.
Your response to failure determines the height of your success. - Robin Sharma
Respect isn't delivered by a title. It's earned by your behavior.

Step out into the world each day and create your masterpiece. The world will be better
for it.
Leaders don’t make excuses. They create results.
THE BEST HABITS OF EXCELLENT LEADERS
You know you need zero title to show up at leadership – both within your work and at your
home. I’ve been in the trenches – developing Leaders Without Titles within organizations
– for nearly 15 years. Here are some of the personal habits I’ve seen the best of the
best model:
1. They ask brilliant questions.
2. They are fit like athletes (as I mentioned on Twitter the other day “Your #1 business
asset is your health”.)
3. They are direct/clear/authentic communicators
4. They read (The best leaders have the biggest libraries! Read to Win).
5. They keep journals to record good ideas, lessons learned and dreams to be executed
on.
6. The run their own race. Leadership isn’t about following the mob and being like
everyone else. That’s followership.
7. They are ethical – maintaining pristine reputations.
8. They lead where they are planted, deeply understanding that leadership is a way of
behaving versus a title on a business card.
Distraction is the greatest thief of time
Today, be more brilliant than anticipated, more courageous than expected and more human
than is commonly seen.
The beautiful thing about today is that you get the choice to make it better than
yesterday.

You can't win the game if you're not even in the game.

You'll have time to rest when you're dead." - Robert De Niro
Big people are those that make others feel big.
You can't get to who you're meant to be tomorrow clinging to who you were yesterday.
If all the things we've bought in the past haven't made us happy, then buying more things
won't make us happy.
Because there will never be a better day than today to become the person you have always
wanted to be.

Taking a risk once and hoping you'll grow fearless is like going to the gym once and

Being humble is cooler than being famous.

Less travelled paths are where all your rewards lie. Have the courage to take them.
Life’s an incredible adventure. Tons of highs – lots of lows. But all of it – is
precious.
“Failure is the price of greatness.”
“You can’t win without leaving your safety zone and taking some calculated risks. No
risk, no reward. And the more risks you take in the pursuit of your dreams, the more you
are going to fail.”
“There’s huge value in getting good at saying no.”
“Embrace change as a chance to grow.”
“Each day, life will send you little windows of opportunity. Your destiny will
ultimately be defined by how you respond to these windows of opportunity.”
You and I have the power to choose to rise above our external circumstances. We always
have a choice to be strong and positive when things fall apart. We have the right to use
our stumbling blocks as stepping stones to our greatest life.”
When you think, behave and feel like leaders – good things will happen.
Don’t blame the politicians. Don’t blame those around you. Don’t blame your parents or
your background. Doing so is playing the victim and this world has far too many people
playing the victim when they could be sharing their brilliance and making a profound
difference.”
“The farmer has patience and trusts the process. He just has the faith and deep
understanding that through his daily efforts, the harvest will come.And then one day,

Daily ripples of excellence -over time- become a tsunami of success”
There is great power in focusing on what you want..... The person who tries to do
everything accomplishes nothing. Most people try to be all things to everyone. And so

they end up being nothing to anyone. Confucius nailed the point: "Person who chases two
rabbits catches neither."
Commit to excellence. Become massively innovative and wear your passion on your sleave.
They might call you different or wierd or even crazy. But please remember, every great
leader (or visionary or brave thinkier) was initially laughed at. Now they are revered.

Fly 1000 miles for a 10 minute meeting (you can’t build great relationships via
email).
Miss a meal but don’t miss reading.
What separates the best from the rest is how they manage the gift of their time.
Too many people live the same year 80 times and call it a life.
Life is short. Be of use.
Invite people into your professional and personal life who inspire you. Who are
outrageously committed to world-class.
Sometimes, too much thinking leads to the death of doing.
It doesn’t matter what other people think of you. All that matters is what you think of
you.
Throughout your day today, keep asking yourself: “how can I make this better?” Apply it
to your work. Apply it to your relationships. Apply it to your Self.
Simplify your life. Strip away all that is unimportant – then focus, focus, focus.
You’ll be surprised how good you will then get at being great.
No matter how good – or bad – your life looks at this very moment, there really is so
much (and so many people) you can be thankful for.

Daily Kickstart: Hope you're superb. Just finished a morning bike ride at home while
catching up on some reading. And started thinking about this past year--the wins, the
adventures, the growth, the lessons. I suggest, as we finish up 2013, that you pull out
your journal and do 3 things:
1. Record Your Victories. It's human nature to focus on what you didn't do/get/become.
But but doing a full list (100+) of all your achievements (small or big) over the past
11 or so months, you'll sharpen your focus on all the progress. And that boosts your
motivation. And fuels more momentum.
2. List Your Learnings. For many years I've made a personal commitment to do whatever it
takes to make each new year better than the last. Leadership+Mastery+Life is all about
small daily steps of progress that amount to outright greatness over your lifetime. So
next--in your journal--write about all the things you've learned from your
days/weeks/months of 2012. In the w
ay, this year will be of acute service to you.
3. Step into a Wow of a Future. The interesting thing about a dream is that once it gets
done, it no longer is your dream--it becomes a result. The elite performer is constantly
stepping into a greater future--until it becomes her result. And then she has the guts to
set an even bigger dream (remember: at the end of your life you'll regret not having
dreamed massive dreams--so why not 10X them now?). So, what i sincerely suggest is that
you write a one paragraph statement of what all areas of your life will look like 12
months from today if each of your best goals got done. Then list at least 5 goals for
each quarter of 2013. Read these every morning. Focus beats IQ :)
OK. Hope i've been of some service to you this morning. Please share this post if you
think it will move others into action. Leadership's not about talking a good game. It's
about leaving the game--and getting big things done. Make today awesome. And Go Get It!

“But every time we do that which we fear, we take back the power that fear has stolen
from us – for on the other side of our fears lives our strength. Every time we step into
the discomfort of growth and progress, we become more free. The more fears we walk
through, the more power we reclaim.”

BIGGER. Just don't settle!
It doesn't matter what you achieved last year. All that matters is being 2X as brilliant
this year. #YourAbsoluteBestYearYet
The quality of your life will come down to the quality of your contribution.
The best time to plant a tree was forty years ago. The second best time is today.
Nourish your spirit. Do the things you fear.
Sure I am that this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set
before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond my
endurance. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win,
victory will not be denied us.
One must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind him to the fact that each moment
of life is a miracle and a mystery.
Self knowledge is the stepping stone to step mastery.
Every second you spend thinking about someone elses dream, you take time away from your
own.
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
What really separates people who are habitually upbeat and optimistic from those who are
consistently miserable is how the circumstances of life are interpreted and processed.
Its only when you have mastered the art of loving yourself that you can truly love
others.
You will never be able to hit a target that you cannot see.
Always declare your goals to the world. Once you make your goals known to the world,
there will instantly be pressure on you to work towards its fulfillment, since no one
likes to look like a failure.
Courage gives you the self control to persist where others have failed.
The only limits on your life are the ones that you set yourself.
Fear is nothing more but a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of
consiousness.
It is not what you will get out of the books that is so enriching. Its what the books will
get out of you that will ultimately change your life.
You sow a thought, you reap an action.
Reap an action, you sow a habit.
Sow a habit, you reap a character.
Sow a character, you reap a destiny
One must never live in the thick of thin things.
Wage war against the weaker thoughts that have crept into the palace of your mind.
They will see that they are unwanted and leave like an unwelcome visitor.

When you control your thoughts, you control your mind. When you control your mind, you
control your life. And once you reach a stage of being in total control of your life you
become a master of your destiny.
Time slips through our hands like grains of sand, never to return.
Failing to plan is planning to fail.
Having the courage to say no to small things in life gives you the power to say yes to
big things.
The most productive people in this world have cultivated the habit of doing things that
less productive people don’t like doing, even though they ( more productive ppl) too
might not like doing them.
Laughter opens your heart and soothes your soul. No one should ever take life so
seriously that they forget to laugh at themselves.
Don’t accept a life of mediocrity when you hold such infinite potential within the
fortress of your mind. Dare to tap into your greatness. Its your birthright.
Act as if failure is impossible and your success will be assured.
The quality of your life will come to the quality of your contribution.
Your life moves to a magical dimension when you start striving to make the world a
better place.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
Hope for what will appear in your future is what gets you out of bed in the morning and
what keeps you inspired through your days.
Today is the day to enjoy the fruits of your efforts. Today is the day to seize the
moment and live a life that soars. Today is the day to live from your imagination and
harvest your dreams. And please, never, ever forget the gift of family.
Life dosent always give you what you ask for it, but it always gives you what you need.
Your genius will shine and happiness will fill your life the instant you discover your
higher purpose and then direct your energies towards it.

Who Will Cry When You Die by Robin Sharma
Today: Excel. Innovate. Renew. Commit. Dare. Believe. Breathe. Push. Reflect. Appreciate.
Energize. Learn. Lead. Do. Be.
Discover your calling; bring more of yourself into your work and focus on what you do
best
Every day, be kind to a stranger
Maintain your perspective; Is there a wiser and more enlightened way to look at the
situation?
Practice tough love, which is self-discipline!
Keep a journal, analyse and evaluate what you do, lessons learnt, personal growth
Develop a honest philosophy; don’t say what you don’t mean
Honor your past; Every second you dwell on the past, you steal from the future. Every
minute you spend focusing on the problems, you take away from finding the solutions. And
thinking about all those things that you wish never happened to you is actually blocking
all the things you want to happen from entering into your life. Given the timeless truth
that holds that you become what you think about all day long, it makes no sense to worry
about past events or mistakes unless you want to experience them for a second time.
Success is not measured by the position that one have reached in life, but by the
obstacles he have overcome while trying to succeed.

Start your day well, first 30 minutes only purest thoughts and finest actions. Focus on
all the good things in life, and good things that you expect to unfold
Learn to say no graciously, concentrate on areas of excellence
Take a weekly Sabbatical
Talk to yourself; select your phrase and train yourself to focus on it
Schedule worry breaks; Mark Twain: I’ve had a lot of trouble in my life, some of which
actually happened
Model a child, they are more energetic, creative
Genius is 99% inspiration, be inspired in life!
Care for the temple
Learn to be silent. To reconnect with who you really are as a person and to come to know
the glory that rests within you, you must find time to be silent on a regular basis.
Experiencing solitude will keep you centred on your highest life priorities
Think of your ideal neighbourhood
Get up early
See your troubles as blessings
Laugh more!!
Spend a day without your watch
Take more risks
Live a life, there are no tragedies, only lessons. No problems, only opportunities
waiting to be recognized as solutions by the person of wisdom
Learn from a good movie
Bless your money
Focus on the worthy; know what needs to be left undone
Create a love account; random acts of kindness, senseless acts of beauty
Get behind people’s eyeballs
List all your worries
Practice the action habit
See your children as gifts
Enjoy the path, not just the reward; the real value of setting and achieving goals lies
not in the rewards you receive but in the person you become as a result of reaching your
goals
Remember that awareness precedes change; you will never be able to eliminate a weakness
you don’t even know about. By paying attention to weakness, you attract solutions into
your life
Master your time
Keep your cool, use only words that are true, necessary and kind
Cure your monkey mind; present moment awareness
Get good at asking
Look for the higher meaning of your work
Develop your talents; too many people spend more time focusing on their weaknesses than
developing their strengths
Connect with nature
Use your commute time
Go on news fast
Get serious about setting goals
Remember the rule of 21
Practice forgiveness
Drink fresh fruit juice
Create a pure environment
Walk in the woods
Get a coach
Take a mini vocation
Become a volunteer; learn to serve
Listen to music daily
Write a legacy statement
Find 3 great friends
Meditate
Have a living funeral, practice dying
Stop complaining and start living
Increase your value. To get more, you have to be more
Be unorthodox. Don’t do things because everyone else does them. Do things that are right
for you.
Carry a goal card
Be more than your moods. You are just the thinker of your thoughts.
Savor the simple stuff; the only things we can take away are our memories and all those
great life experiences that adds value to our lives
Stop condemning. See the richness of the society from its diversity Take your life into

your own hands and you have no one to blame
See your day as your life
You change your life from the second you make a decision from the depths of your heart
to be a better, more dedicated human being. The effort to maintain that discipline takes
much longer
Create a mastermind alliance
Create a daily code of conduct, values, virtues and vows
Imagine a richer reality. To improve your life, you must first improve your thinking.
We see the world, not as it is, but as we are.
Be the CEO of your life
Be humble. You have so much more to learn
Don’t finish every book you start
Don’t be so hard on yourself, human beings are designed to make mistakes
Make a vow of silence
Don’t pick up the phone every time it rings
Recreation must involve re-creation
Choose worthy opponents
Sleep less
Have a family mealtime
Become an imposter, fake it till you make it
Take a public speaking course
Stop thinking tiny thoughts; Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never ho
any higher than you think. It’s not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it
is because we do not dare that they are difficult. It’s not what you are that’s holding
you back. It’s what you think you’re not.
Don’t worry about things you cannot change
Re-write your life story. At any moment I could start being more of the person I dream
to be- but which moment should I choose?
Plant a tree
Find your place of peace; youth is not a time of life, it’s a state of mind
Take more pictures. Record the best times of your life
Become an adventurer. Make a list of pursuits and go for them!
Decompress before you go home
Respect your instincts
Collect quotes that inspire you
Love your work
Selflessly serve
Live fully so you can die happy. When all the clutter is stripped away from your life,
its true meaning will become clear; to live for something more than yourself. The
purpose of life is a life of purpose.
This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a
mighty one, being a true force of Nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments
and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I
am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and, as long as I live,
it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die. For the harder I work, the more I love. I
rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It’s a sort of splendid
torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as
possible before handing it on to future generations.

Every moment in front of another human being is the opportunity to express your
values...and what your life stands for.
Let us stand for Mastery vs. Mediocrity, Execution vs. Excuses and EnCouragement vs.
Tearing People Down.

Practice+Preparation are more valuable than Intelligence+Talent.

Anyone can be exceptional when things are going your way. The real test is how wow are
you when it all falls apart.
You were built to Impact the world in your own unique way. To deny that Call on Your Life
is to betray your best self.

Good Fortune is much less about luck than Practice, Passion and Perserverance.

Creativity without Productivity is Insanity. #leadwithoutatitle

An addiction to distraction is the death of creative production.

A key competitive advantage is having an extraordinary attention span in a world where
too many are too distracted.

Building a business is no different than creating a masterpiece on a different type of
canvas.
So much of winning lives in beginning. So think big but start small. And now.

The larger the dream the more important your team. #leadwithoutatitle

A great team of spirited people can achieve extraordinary results. Now is a fine time to
build that team.

Leadership's about 3 simple things: growing more leaders+being UberInspirational+having
an Impact. #leadwithoutatitle

The closer you get to achieving your Masterpiece (great work/the book/the symphony), the
louder your inner critic begins to scream.Fight it!

The main reason we procrastinate? We're scared of Being Awesome. #leadwithoutatitle

Every moment carries with it the opportunity to make a change. #LWT

Beneath your procrastination lies your fear.

Genius is not the result of a Divine Blessing. It's the result of Human Practice.
If your greatest resource is your people then your biggest investment should be in your

people. Developing, growing & training them.
Fears unfaced become your chains.
The value of setting massive goals for your business+life is not in the goals but in who
you must grow into to achieve them.
Excuses are nothing more than the lies your fears have sold you.
40 days straight RT @PacoLicea: @_robin_sharma What's your strategy for incorporating a

All work is a platform to express creative potential, offer value and make a unique

How to get to world-class? Daily & continuous micro-improvements. Steady and consistent
elevations in the way you work, lead & live.
You can't have an extraordinary company with ordinary people. #LWT

The job of the leader is to leave a trail of more leaders.
Your excuses are nothing more than the lies your fears have sold you.

The true measure of your bigness lies in your impact on the next generation.

Leadership's less about income than impact. More about passion than position.
#leadwithoutatitle

Big minds are occupied with big ideas vs small concerns.
oncerned with the next day. Leaders are concerned with the next generation.
#leadwithoutatitle

Procrastination is the fear response of people scared to do their dreams.
An addiction to distraction is the death of creative production.
What makes Genius is the ability to stay interested in a project years after it first
became interesting.
The purpose of work is to help people. The other rewards are inevitable by-products of
this singular focus.

If being emotionally intelligent is such a soft concept, why's it so hard for so many
people?

You can tell how big you are by how invested you are in making others feel big. #LWT

Being productive allows you to leverage your life to be of use.

The secret to Genius-Level Performance isn't good genes but relentless practice.

Professional success is ALWAYS a reflection of personal development.
Sometimes we just need to say no...respectfully.

population does. #leadwithoutatitle
Trust takes years to earn but seconds to lose. #leadwithoutatitle

I focused more on Impact vs. income RT @blue_valley37: @_robin_sharma How did you excel
so much in your career, sir?
Petty worries are the domain on tiny minds. Lofty ideas are the realm of exceptional
brains.
VictimSpeak: "looks like we have a big problem." LeaderTalk: "Seems like there's a giant
opportunity."

Be strong to be helpful. Be strong to be free. #MovNat

You can make excuses or you can make things better. But you can't do both.
#leadwithoutatitle
Leadership’s mostly about 3 things: Impact+Influence+Inspiration

Exceptional producers don't spend their highest value hours on their lowest level things.
The goal of a goal is the progress it provokes, not the goal.

A mind consumed by little worries has no room for big dreams.
Anyone can be exceptional when all's going well. Show us how you play when it's all
falling apart.

Pretty good's not very good.
People love doing business with people who love doing business.

To show leadership is to deliver results. It's that simple. Not easy. But simple. #LWT
