Creating Your Life Resume

  I love the book “Living with a Seal.”  It was one of the last books I listened to a few years ago and it fired me up completely.  It was raw.  It was funny.  And it made me look at the ways I am holding myself back.  (You can find it here). So when I saw this interview with Jesse Itzler titled, “How to stop being realistic and shoot for the moon,” I was interested.  But I did what we all do.  I looked to see how long the video was.  Ugh…it’s just over 44 minutes!  Who has that kind of time?  So I did the other thing we all do.  I kept scrolling.   Luckily I saw it again.  This time I had a few minutes and decided to dig in and listen to what Jesse and Tom Bilyeu were discussing.  I was so glad I did.   There were a ton of “aha” moments for me in this interview.  But probably my favorite was the concept of the “Life Resume.”  Jesse talks in the interview about getting a low SAT score and how that could have held him back.  But instead of focusing on that score or his shortcomings (and trying to build an actual resume), he worked to create a resume of his life. I love that.   As you look back at the life you have created so far…do you have experiences you are proud to put on your resume?  My guess is you do.  On the other hand, it’s almost never too late to start building.   What are the things you want to ad to your portfolio? Who are the people you want to meet?   What are the things you want to try (even if you fail)? Now make the list…and let Jesse Itzler be your inspiration.  Go take a risk.  Create a life resume you will be proud of.   We are creating a lot of content…it’s hard to keep up!  An easy way to see all the things you want to check out is to sign up for our VIP Newsletter!  Sign up here.
