TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

  1. Be ruthlessly honest with yourself. Sit down and clean out your mental barn. 

  2. Spend your time, money, and energy towards the things that serve you.

  3. You can do things your way and be polite about it. When you execute it properly, you have nothing to apologize for.

  4. What is really going to make you happy? How about trying that.

  5. If you’re stuck, ask “What’s wrong with my life? Why?” The answer to those two questions is your goal.

  6. Name your tarantulas. Find out what the underlying problem is.

  7. When the anxious “what ifs” are driving you nuts - think about the likelihood that it’ll actually come to pass.

  8. If there’s a situation you can’t control, set it aside. Spend your freakout funds on something you can control.

  9. Do what you want to do now. Life is too short.

  10. There’s nothing wrong with looking out for number one. You have to be in charge of your own happiness because no one else’s job is to do it for you.
