Takeaways + Tactics

YOU are already enough – you don’t need to chase “enough-ness”.

Freedom happens because you create structure, which builds habits, and those habits create freedom.

Real estate is as simple as talking to people and listening for CHANGE – and social media is a dream scenario for listening for change in people’s lives.

Freedom Comes From Structure

At the start of the show, James shared the journey he took to finding fulfillment, passion and joy in his business. Next, we talked about the importance of knowing what a million dollars would look like, and we also shared on the importance of knowing that you are enough. Towards the end of the show, we talked about the importance of having a set start to the day.

We also shared insights on;

  • Why it’s wrong to use fear as your fuel
  • Why freedom actually comes from structure
  • The science of sleep and what we can learn from Einstein
  • How you access miracles

Fulfillment First

Too often we get lost in the next transaction, and the next deal that we forget about what truly matters. We actually owe it to ourselves to put fulfillment first, and ask the questions that set us up for a successful future. Freedom happens because you create habits, and those habits over time, become things you don’t even have to think about. It’s important to build a life that fulfills you internally. Ask yourself questions at the end of the day, and in the morning, listen for your answer and it will be delivered to you.
