Show Notes: Putting value out into the world via social media Mentors can breathe life back into you “Just an ordinary guy trying to do extraordinary things by putting in the extra work” Your life can be turned upside down in an instant Emotional and mental impact of finding yourself alone – no distractions, no noise Taking ownership rather than playing the victim in your own life What if instead of focusing on accolades + things we focused on being an exceptional human beings? Why Tyler is building something with no expectation of financial gain Adversity + transformation vs. transaction Desire to help others experience difficult life challenges sooner Difference between motivation (external) + inspiration (internal) Comeback of vulnerability and recognizing it as a strength: “The rise of the real” Tendency to compare ourselves and our successes and struggles to others and placing higher value on greater struggles Tyler’s mentality of running from negativity Need to evaluate the things + people you allow into your life Instead of focusing on passion, ask: “Are you chasing hustle or are you chasing your gifts?” Make a decision on how you are going to choose to live today Tyler’s advice to YPs: have patience + stop trying to play catch up Guest Bio: In the last 3 years, Tyler Harris has gone from unemployed to $700k/year by waging war on personal change.
