Do you ever wonder why some people achieve extraordinary things while others get lost or buried in the competitive pack? Why do some make history while others just make ends meet?
Extensive studies into the most extraordinary people in history don’t prove that those with the highest IQ or strongest legs are the ones that win the most. Nearly 70% of the world’s billionaires are completely self-made, some from deeply disadvantaged backgrounds. In fact, many have suffered horrible “luck” along the way – from unfortunate disease to devastating market crashes.
Extraordinary super-achievers are known to surpass expectations at the highest levels multiple times, even in multiple industries.
They bounce back and forth between failure and success, overcoming incomprehensible setbacks and adversity only to rise again.
So what is the secret sauce that separates the legends from the losers?
For my entire life, this was a question I just couldn’t let go.
