6 Big Lessons to Win at the Game of Life

  1. Small Wins Matter – A great life is built by evolution. Small and steady wins the race. What you do every day is far more important than what you do every decade. What you do every day is your life in miniature. As you live every single day, you are crafting your life. What you do over the next hour is building your future. Aspire to make every pocket of 24 hours as best as you humanly can. And the rest of your life will take care of itself. Small daily improvements over time will lead to stunning results. Tiny wins are the way to greatness.
  2. Nothing Fails Like Success – It is one thing to be successful. It’s another to SUSTAIN success over the coming decades. Are you playing the short game or are you playing the long game? Play the long game. Aim for legendary. Say to yourself: “I want to have the guts, and the grit, and the acumen, and the mindset, and the capability, and the commitment to create enduring success. Success can be toxic. Often, with success, people shift from humility to arrogance. Once that happens, it’s a very short fall from success to irrelevance. So, as you become more successful, you need to become more humble, work even harder, care even more about your product, become more passionate, and learn even more.
  3. Life Has Taught Me: No Ask, No Get. There is a huge power in asking for what you want. A lot of times, we can have what we want, but we just don’t ask for it. If the world doesn’t know what you want, how can the world deliver what you want? Ask, ask, ask, ask! No ask, no get. The only failure is not trying.
  4. Prosperity Is a Reflection of Value Delivery. The marketplace rewards the value you produce. If you want to make millions, serve millions. If you want to make billions, help billions. Meditate on this mantra: “How can I most be of service to as many people as possible?” Robin: my obsession in my businesses is to give my customers 10 times the value that they have the right to expect. The point is simply this: if you want more money, then help more people.
  5. Those Who Don’t Make Time for Exercise Must Eventually Make Time for Illness. Exercise really is a game changer. When you get up at 5am and spend those first 20 minutes in intense exercise, you sweat and release brain-derived neurotrophic factors (BDNF). This is miracle grow for your brain – your brain lights up. BNNF also repairs damaged brain cells. By sweating in that first 20-minute pocket of the 20/20/20 formula, you also release dopamine. That’s the inspirational neurotransmitter. You create a pharmacy of mastery in your brain. You feel inspired. You also reduce cortisol by working out first thing in the morning for 20 minutes. Very few things are as valuable as getting into the finest fitness of your life.
  6. Failure Is the Price of Greatness. Respect belongs to the people who are in the game. Adversity is the price of ambition. Robin: I would rather get to the end of my life bloodied, marred, and scarred, and say, ‘I didn’t spend the best years of my life chit-chatting around the water cooler, or condemning and criticizing and being a nay-sayer. I spent the best years of my life gloriously standing in the fire of ideals, my goals, and trying to get what my heart’s desires said I should do – done! Get your dreams done, because the world will be a better place because you’re in it!
