Ep.79 | 5 Minute Drill | A Simple Strategy to Improve Your Key Relationships

I had it backwards for so many years…

Told myself, “Hey, man…when you ‘make it’…when you’re successful, THEN you can take care of your family.”

Boy was I wrong. 

Now that I know the truth, I’ve decided to call this the Runner-Up Mindset…

Because as long as you have it, you’ll never achieve what you want and experience the fulfillment you deserve.

In today’s 5-Minute Drill, I share a simple 3-step check-in strategy I use when I feel like I’m not giving the people I love and care about the attention they deserve.

Bottom line, when they’re not getting the attention they deserve from me, not only are they off, I’m off.

Talk about a performance killer.

If you want to get the most out of your relationships WHILE getting the most out of your talent, then don’t miss out on this lesson I had to learn the hard way.
