What Your Mom Never Told You About Stupidity

If you join our daily team huddles, you’ll notice a reoccurring theme. Stupidity. Sounds harsh, but it’s true. Stupidity is toxic. It creates an ora of mediocrity. It plagues the environment with the status quo.

What Your Mom Never Told You About Stupidity

Operating with an entrepreneurial focus, stupidity holds you back, makes you slow, and restricts growth.

You’ll spot stupidity from a mile away. They don’t learn, they don’t innovate, they abuse their mind and body, and they can't communicate effectively.

If you’re this person, fire yourself from all existence and start applying these steps.

Pick up a damn book, an e-course, or anything

Why aren't you learning?

Fine, you don't like reading non-fiction, which is a stupid excuse. Take an e-course, go to a conference, read 5 books on the topic and implement some of the ideas.

Learning is growing and growing is life. Staying out of mediocrity involves a life full of learning.

If your speciality is marketing, I should not be more well versed at strategy and implementation than you. This is your strength, this is where you spend all your time.

The same goes with purchasing, finance and even health.

Learn often and implement fast.

Find a mentor and ask questions

It amazes me the lack of wanting to learn.

I currently follow two mentors, Grant Cardone and Gary V. I've also been dabbling with Trump and the art of the deal as he's got a brilliant mind (love him or not).

I run a multimillion dollar company, have been a health expert over 10 years, and still learn for hours a day.

I'll go a week without some people I lead asking me questions on how to become better. How to be better at their role, how to increase their minds potential, to be great at what they do.

Learning and asking questions from people who have been there, who have done it is crucial.

Quite making excuses and get active.

Create value

Learning will inevitably make you more valuable as long as you know how to apply it.

Value creation and innovation are a dangerous duo. When you can create value through innovation you're telling the world you’ve got what it takes to be great.

Get out of the mindset life owes you anything. The more value you create, the more value you'll get in return. It's as simple as that.

Stop being a slouch and workout

If you're not healthy you're losing out on your maximum potential.

You'll be more stressed, less likely to make good decisions and coast through the day.

Being healthy increases your energy, increases your brain’s potential and will give you motivation to be great.

Health is none negotiable and not taking care of yourself is stupid.

Communication, it’s not just for whales

Whales are intelligent mammals who communicate with song and each pod having its own language. Incredible!

Our biggest problem is we don’t listen. Listening is the first step to effective communication.

If you want to avoid the classification “stupid” then you must be great at listening and communicating.

If you’re not good at it, this is where you start applying the learning I mentioned above.

You can change. It'll be difficult and 95% of you won't make any progress, but the 5% who do, your life will change forever.

Just start. Create habits. Be great.
