The Path to Mastery

Some people know WHAT they want or what their goal is. Few people know WHY they want it. And a fraction of those people actually know HOW to achieve the results… and not just getting the results, but making it SUSTAINABLE for the long-term.

That’s why I brought my good friend, Dr. Trevor Kashey, onto the podcast this week: To teach us HOW to transform our thought patterns, learn new language tools, and ultimately to create the life we’ve always wanted.

It’s one of the best, most influential conversations I’ve had in a while.

Dr. Trevor Kashey completed the requirements for his PhD in biochemistry at the age of 22.  He now spends every waking moment working with his kickstart program graduates and iterating his positive, present-tense, action-oriented philosophy which hides, in plain sight, the secret to having the best life possible… Becoming the person it takes to get it.

You’ll learn:

  • The ONE sustainable action to truly change your habits.
  • Easily implementable tools to manage stress and emotions.
  • How to use a problem orientation vs goal orientation to design your life.
  • The KEY to find meaning in your life, and be a more effective human.
