Do you know what the secret to life is? One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and everything else don’t mean $#!7.
That’s the wisdom Curly passes on in the movie City Slickers, and it’s the wisdom so many of us feel like we’re chasing.
We want to find the one thing that’s going to make us happy. We want to find the one thing that will transform us into a success story. We want to find the one thing that will make our business soar.
We look at guys like John Saddington (our guest on the show today) and think, “Wow, John’s got it all figured out. John found his one thing.”
After all, John was the youngest executive in the history of a Fortune 50 company. He holds two masters degrees. He’s started and successfully exited numerous software startups. All this and he’s in his early thirties, so he must have found his “one thing,” right?
Wrong. In fact, I was shocked when John told me, “I have no f-ing idea what I want to do with my life.”
In John’s eyes his story is just beginning. He may have some skins on the wall, but he knows there is still so much to learn and so far to go before he could ever consider himself experienced.
Starting and selling a successful business is just a single bullet point in the story John is creating with his life. That’s a powerful reminder for what we’re all really after – stories, not ‘w’s.
I’m thrilled to have John share that wisdom and so much more in our session today.
John shares with us:
- The moment when he realized what was really important in life.
- The powerful limiting belief he had to overcome to become a successful entrepreneur.
- Priceless advice for getting your next business idea off on the right foot.
