Ep 10: The Secret To Staggering Startup Success

Ep 10: The Secret To Staggering Startup Success (Not An Exaggeration)

Today on the podcast I’m talking about the secret to startup success. It’s a bit of a hype-y title, but honestly, this is 100% true.

If you haven’t achieved the success you want to achieve in your business (and that’s most entrepreneurs, because as human beings we are always striving for more), this episode is for you.

And I’ll tell you right now, it’s NOT:

  • Creating the right product
  • Getting the right investors on board
  • Having the right marketing strategy
  • Having the right product-market fit

Nup, none of these.

These are the mechanics to success. The real conduit to achieving success comes from within YOU.

It’s self-belief. 

You’re probably rolling your eyes right now, but hear me out…

Look at all the most successful entrepreneurs and business people in the world: Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Beyonce, Steve Jobs…They’re all exactly the same.

They all possess BUCKETS of this stuff. They pretty much have NOTHING ELSE in common except for their extraordinary self-belief.

In this episode I’ll cover:

  1. What self belief actually means, and why most people look at it completely the wrong way.
  2. Why the people with the highest IQs never become HUGELY successful (as in, billionaire mogul-status successful)
  3. The kinds of body language and tonality that immediately tips people off that you don’t have self-belief.
  4. Mind Hack #546: The weird thing you’ll unconsciously start doing MORE of as you build your self-belief.
  5. Self-belief is a learned behaviour. Here are the tricks I use in order to build up an excess supply of it.
