Show Notes:

Alex Hormozi
The one trait all great leaders have in common. “If you have humility, you can do a lot. If somebody’s humbled and they can accept feedback, then they can change. It’s very difficult to do, because if someone doesn’t have humility, then it means that whoever they are on day one has to be the person that they need to be at day 1000. If they can’t admit there’s a deficit that they can’t improve, they’re already screwed. So humility is by far the biggest thing when it comes to being a successful founder. Beyond that, they have to have drive and determination — their fuel.”

Joe De Sena
An easier life is not a happier life. “We have more and more of these comforts that do make our lives easier. At the same time, one could also argue that as a society we’ve never been more unhappy. There’s never been greater instances of anxiety and depression and all these things, and yet you have more comforts than ever. It almost seems like it’s an innate part of the human condition to almost need a degree of like earned dopamine.”

Daryl Gray
Servant leadership is the key to success. “I’m always looking to be a champion and a servant to others. That’s all I do. That’s my whole business model. I think the money is a byproduct of doing that. You’re going to make money. This is what, a $400 billion industry? A lot of people don’t understand how much money floats around the legal industry. Legal services is a huge, huge industry compared to oil and gas and insurance and tech — all these industries that we know about. So the money is there. But the thing that sets you apart — and I think the thing that’s going always survive, whether it be the rise of AI, whether it be other changes like hedge funds coming in and all of this stuff, which everybody’s concerned about now — you have to keep your finger on the pulse of what a servant should be doing for the people that need your help the most and that’s John every day. If you’re not looking at it from that standpoint, then you’re not going to create a long-lasting, survivable business model.”

Adam Alter
Embrace the challenge. “Broadly speaking, there are two ways to think of something that’s hard. One way is to do what is, I think, human instinct and to see it as a threat. It’s nice to do things that are easy. There’s a reason we spend hours and hours watching Netflix and scrolling through social media platforms and eight hours a day on our phones and things like that. It’s easy, and a lot of life feels hard and so we seek out the easy. And that makes total sense from a human energy apportionment perspective. I understand why people do that, and I do the same to an extent. But it’s the things that are hard that are beneficial — not just now, but in the very long run. I think they make us stronger. We know that. We’ve talked about that. They make us more resilient in the face of challenges that might come up later on.”
