Sean was one of the most respected members of the Genius Network and was always a shining light. He also had a remarkable sense of humor. If he made his life truly incredible and felt great about himself, then anyone can. Watching this always reminds me to never be a victim and to shake off self-pity when something doesn’t go the way I wanted.
Marisa Peer is the British equivalent of Tony Robbins and certainly no beginner in living an abundant life. She has been teaching for nearly four decades, is exceptionally well-spoken, and gives clear and easy-to-understand solutions for self-esteem. Marisa is a huge proponent of having her clients write “I Am Enough” on their mirrors and on cell phone screens and to recite it daily. As I said in Chapter 1, I’m a big believer in this affirmation as well and have felt the results in my own life. I believe if more people thought they were enough, it would solve 90+ percent of their problems.
Joel Osteen talks about the power of “I am” and how important it is for us to make sure whatever follows I am is self-empowering and not negative. He explains the importance of positive self-talk, especially when using the words “I am.” This video is very short, but it is a powerful reminder of how to build ourselves up and not tear ourselves down.

Then he follows it up with solid advice that resonates with the story: Be proactive in helping others and always do what is right, even if it is not popular. Watching this is to see what true leadership looks like.
Coach John Wooden
I feel very blessed to have met Coach Wooden personally at his home in California and to have had the opportunity to spend the day with him. He is the definition of leadership and a life teacher. After spending time with this extremely genuine and generous man, I can tell you he lived what he preached. He was a shining example of what he tells others in this video: to be a living steward of humanity. It is my truest honor to have called him a friend.
Bo has a unique style of captivating the listener and delivering the message in a way that you will not forget it. It’s impossible to not realize you are encountering a truly amazing human being as you watch this. This is like the best kind of history lesson: he covers the three traits of leaders for the past 2,000 years. One of the best videos on leadership ever. Generosity is one of the traits, but you will be surprised by what he means by that and how well he explains it using NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice as the example. Bo Eason is at a whole other level of energy and motivation than most speakers on the planet.
Admiral William McRaven
Admiral McRaven is the real deal. To become a Navy SEAL is ridiculously tough, and his delivery and content in this video reflects that. It lays out very plainly the steps necessary to become a true leader. There is no room for fluff when training for the Navy SEALs, and there is no fluff in this video either.

Ed has become a podcast star because of his great interviewing skills, and it has attracted some of the most sought-after high performers on the planet. (This is the podcast that I heard Howard Behar on, the story I told in Chapter 1.) Regularly watching or listening to Ed is a much better use of your time than watching trivial TV shows or negative news or New Jersey housewives.
Mike Rowe, in his witty and well-spoken manner, shares his thoughts on the next generation and gives an extraordinarily candid interview about life and work. I love this man’s humor and his ability to “truth tell”—he adds so much value. This video will give you a clear understanding of how blue-collar work has been devalued and how to get back to basics.
James Clear is the modern-day master of habits, and trust me that habits maketh the man! He is so insightful and he crafts his thoughts carefully. I also recommend signing up for his superb 3-2-1 newsletter that he sends out every Thursday.

He is without doubt one of the all-time greatest motivators and has always had the sincere intention of helping others and sharing his knowledge. There has always been something special about Bob Proctor and he understands vibrations in the Universe like very few do. Give this a view to see what I mean.
