154: Robin Sharma On UNLOCKING Your Genius To Tap Your Everyday Hero

April 29, 2019, I decided to message Robin Sharma and invite him to come to serve you on my podcast. He politely said, “not right now”. About a year later, I messaged him again. The answer: “not right now”. A year later, “Ryan, let’s set something up, here is my assistant’s info.” I bring this up because when you want something in life, I mean truly want it…..you have to DEMAND it! I really wanted to have a conversation with someone I call a trailblazer, world leader, thought leader, and humanitarian.
Well, the time has come! This conversation provokes the inner voice of doubt that so desperately wants to be overcome by your voice of genius. This conversation also provokes the fear of rejection inside you that holds you back from experiencing some of life’s true riches and joys. This conversation challenges you to step into your discomfort know that it is growth in wolf’s clothing. This conversation helps you UPGRADE your life personally and professionally! Enjoy and please share this with a friend. It would mean the world to me!
Oh, and please buy yourself this gift called The Everyday Hero Manifesto, here.
