Saying He Lives By

“Live today like no one else, so later you can live like no one else.”

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”

Key Points

1. You Must Start

Sean: “I was always working on my dream job, while I was always working my day job.  I realized I had to start manning up.”

2. Be Consistent

You have to be consistent.  Start, keep learning and getting better, and eventually you’ll figure it out.  You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

3. Hustle

The struggle is real.  Don’t think that it will be easy.  You have to be prepared for years of work, it’s nonstop essentially.

4. Income follows Influence

Learn, get better, and push constantly to master your craft.  Again, be consistent with this.

Heart Healthy Hustle 

Heart: Sean’s Favorite activity for strengthening his character: Morning routine is a must.. visualization, prayer, devotions with God, reading challenging content, bulletproof coffee.

Health: How do you maintain your health while living a fast paced life? 

Fitness is absolutely crucial.  Going for runs can clear your head and give you a chance to brainstorm.  Eat premium fuel: eating healthy, drinking smoothies consistently.  If you are a Ferrari you need to be ingesting premium fuels.

Hustle: What is your main motivation for hustling to the max of your potential?

  The struggle is real.  There is a land grab happening right now on social media.  Don’t regret not taking a shot on yourself.
