In this month’s edition, SUCCESS talks with Tom Bilyeu, co-founder of Quest Nutrition and host of Impact Theory about using your struggles as motivation to succeed. We also chat with Pencils of Promise founder Adam Braun about the power that lies in discovering what you’re meant to do in life. We also hear from Peter Shankman, host of the popular podcast, Faster than Normal, about how to take control of your moments of genius. Next we sit down with authenticity expert Karissa Thacker about the three selves that everybody has: our ideal self, our best self and our real self. Finally, in a clip from the archives, Jim Rohn teaches the importance of personal development to create a life of your dreams.

Tom Bilyeu on Why to Take the Red Pill, Not the Blue Pill

“There’s one fundamental question that everybody needs to ask: Does this belief move me towards my goals?”

Adam Braun on Discovering What You Are Meant to Accomplish

“Lightning moments go hand in hand with an element of inspiration. Something happens in the world and it hits you at a moment in your life when suddenly you see through all of the things in front of you on a given day, and you see a new path ahead.”

Peter Shankman on Replacing ‘Have to’ With ‘Get To’

“If we spent one-quarter of the time that we do complaining about things actually putting them into action, our lives would be so much easier.”

Karissa Thacker on Our Three Different Selves

“All three of those selves are part of becoming authentic. The most important thing to be aware of is there’s choice. There’s choice in who you are in every given moment, and there’s choice in who you become over time.”

Jim Rohn on Working Harder on Yourself Than Your Job

“If you work on your job, you’ll make a living. If you work on yourself, you’ll make a fortune.”
