Description

Ep 047: Have you ever wondered how really successful people got their start? We learned last week that yeah, talent will give you a leg up, but as much as talent counts, effort counts twice as much. Sure, a lot of people come from money or went to fancy private schools and have all the connections already set for them to make it big. But what about everyone else? How did Maya Angelou go from growing up in the depression to being arguably the greatest poet of our time? How did Lady Gaga go from singing at open mic nights to one of the greatest women in music history? What’s the secret? Our guest today asked himself the same thing when he was just an 18 year old college student. He thought if he could just find out what how the greatest people in the world launched their careers, he could compile all the answers in a book and change how our generation viewed success. His mission proved more difficult than he imagined, but what he realized is that there is always a way. This author is Alex Banayan, the author of the national bestseller The Third Door, which chronicles his five-year quest tracking down the world's most successful people to uncover how they broke through and launched their careers.

Today we will learn:
- How to keep going through rejection and failure
- Why it’s important to carefully select your support system
- How to make the biggest dreams a reality

Deep Sukhwani There’s under 4 mins and of ads for each hour long episode bunched into two breaks which is less than most sponsored post casts. I sometimes spend days on a one episode for you to consume, learn and grow for free. I consider this a fair trade off 😊

Sara Erin Hey Sara~ I greatly respect all races and do my part in promoting equality. I myself do not consider merely mentioning a hijab to be racist. However, I respect your opinion and in no way wish to be perceived as insensitive or disrespectful. Therefore, I’ve removed that comment from the show. Thanks for bringing this up to me and for your understanding as I learn and grow on this public platform. 😊 I’m doing the best I can with what I know at the time.
