I own a wealth management company called MedCapital. People are terrible at buying life insurance, even though it’s the bedrock of a solid wealth strategy.
We struggle to focus on the future.
We’re good at the ‘now’.
This is because, when we buy the ‘future’ we’re actually buying how it makes us feel right now.
If you want someone to make a smarter decision about their future, you need to figure out how to make them feel it right now.
We worry about things that might not work out.
We are all a combination of our experiences of the past.
We don’t need to detach from our painful past.
The you today is different from the you a year ago.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
