  1. Every reward in life comes from exploring the willingness to explore the unknown.
  2. Ask yourself, who is the type of person who can achieve results I want? Let the outcome follow naturally instead of the identity.
  3. Once you assign an identity to yourself, you don’t have to motivate yourself to do the habit. You’re acting in alignment with the type of person you see yourself to be.
  4. Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you want to become.
  5. Seek the people and environment where your desired behavior is the norm. Create a sacred space where you can rise together and support each other.
  6. The process of not procrastinating is just a process of getting started each day. Master the art of showing up first.
  7. Just stay on the bus. It’ll lead you to the path to unique and valuable work.
  8. You don’t need to believe that the change will happen. But you have to believe that it’s possible.
  9. Write down your signals of progress, the proof that you’re moving in the right direction. Be committed to building up the evidence over time so you can change the narrative.
