Hi, it’s Robin Sharma, author of the Leader Who Had No Title, founder of The Titan Academy, and welcome with this Mastery Session called How Billionaires Set Giant Goals.
So when I look at my social media feeds a lot of people are asking me “Robin, can you walk us through how the best in the world set and achieve great goals?”
And so I’d love to do that for you and here is a sequence. You don’t have to do it 100%, but part-time performance leads to part-time results. And if you do do it 100%, you are going to get some phenomenal results in your pro life, in your financial life, in your physical life, in your private life, and in your spiritual life.
So let’s get going. Starting point number one, step one in the billionaire goal setting process, and you probably know, just to give you some context, I’ve worked with many of the most successful and celebrity billionaires on the planet for going into my third decade, and I’ve worked very intimately helping them scale their empires, get their financial lives to the next level, and also calibrate their lifestyles, because a lot of these people are very successful in business, but their personal lives are a mess.
And their interior lives are even more difficult, because they haven’t spent a lot of time refilling the well, building self love, working on their physical fitness, dialing in their nutrition, doing things like meditation, a lot of these people journaling is new to them, a weekly nature walk is new to them, my proprietary protocol the second wind workout is new to them, the 60 minute student ritual that I teach is new to them.
So literally they’re great in business, but the rest of their life is often, let’s just say in a state of acute deterioration. So I’ve worked a lot of the most successful on the planet in their business lives. I’ve taught them this goal setting process. I’ve worked with a lot of the most successful firms on the planet, you know whether it’s a Starbucks, a General Electric, I’ve worked with The Coca-Cola Company senior leaders there, Microsoft, IBM, Nike, FedEx, it just goes on and on, and I only mention that to simply say this process has worked very well, it’s been fire proofed and battle tested with many of the most successful business leaders in the world, and also some of the artists and athletes that I work with.
And it doesn’t just apply to your business life, I want to make that very clear. It’ll apply to every core area. So really this is the goal setting process for empire makers, whatever your empire looks like. It could be financial empire, a business empire, a creative empire, a spiritual empire. Let’s go.
Starting point number one of this process: Clarity is the DNA of mastery. So if you look at the titans of business, the true leaders in finance — these people literally will say look at my charts. If you look at a great military leader, you look at a great athlete, in a world of superficiality they have shifted to massive granularity, so they know in intimate detail exactly what their future timeline will look like.
Why? Because clarity breeds and builds and is the DNA of mastery. You want to have a very clear vision of what your future is going to look like.
