The more I live, the more I realize what’s important and what isn’t.

…The more I’m aware of my emotions, which are worth paying attention to and which ones to ignore.

The more I live the more I realize that we can all live a truly GREAT LIFE, most of us just lack the clarity, and even the permission, to take the necessary actions that will help us live greatly every day.

What follows is a very simple list.

It’s a list that has helped me with my own life over the last few months.

I’m taking bigger action in my business. I’m chasing dreams in my life and in my relationships that even a year ago, I may not have thought were possible.

I’m living bigger, daring mightier, and every day I feel truly alive.

Do these 4 things. Do them today, and then tomorrow, and then every day thereafter.

They’re simple, but they’re powerful.

1. Aim high. Plan. Act.

The few weeks or so I’ve set some pretty big goals within my life and my business, but I haven’t sat back and dreamt, I’ve planned and taken action.

This isn’t a pat on the back, but an admission.

In the past I’ve set big goals, told a pal or two, and then acted as if I’d already accomplished them. I didn’t reverse engineer how to achieve them and I did hire someone to help me do so.

Recently, I’ve set the big goals, then hired a coach to help me figure out how to achieve them.

One of the things that will help me accomplish what I’ve set out to accomplish is the Average 2 Alpha Tribe newsletter.

The other is something I’ll tell you about in a few days.

The goal is actually pretty massive, but the plan to get there is real. The numbers are attainable – not easily attainable – but they’re attainable.

The goal is audacious, the plan is simple (not easy, but simple).

I’ve been so busy working on carrying out the plan as of late that I feel better than I’ve ever felt. There’s a power in taking action on something you deem as big and actually taking the steps to see it through that doesn’t allow you to look at the bad in your life or the things you can get down about…

… you’re only focused on the massive amount of work you have to do, and it’s awesome.

Set a MASSIVE goal in your business and in your life…

… Then take real time, a day or two, and figure out the simplest way possible to achieve the goal.

… Then ACT!

2. Be really, really busy.

The offshoot of setting this big goal then taking action is you’re going to be insanely busy, which takes planning.

I actually hate the term ‘busy’, because more often than not it involves someone doing a lot of stuff that doesn’t really bring them closer to their wildest dreams. (Read This: Why Being Busy Is Keeping You Broke)

If you do the first step, setting that big goal, then figuring out the simple things you need to do to get there…

Simple can be BIG, but clear. Just because something’s simple doesn’t mean it isn’t massive.

Take the second part of the equation to us here at Dare Mighty Things Inc. growing as we want to grow…

… We’re starting a supplement company and launching the first supplement in two weeks.

The idea is simple. Actually carrying it out has been complicated and difficult.

Have simple, massive ideas, then figure out how to achieve them and you’ll have no choice but to be in the moment, every moment of your life.

3. Train ridiculously hard.

I love working out. It doesn’t matter if it’s running or lifting, doing painful things gives you a high, it gives you a dopamine release that makes you feel absolutely wonderful.

When you’re training, don’t just go through the motions, have your goals, the weights and reps you’re trying to lift, and get after it. (Try This: Free Strength Test)

4. Eat healthy.

Training and eating right is a must.

‘Eating healthy’ can mean a myriad of things, and depending on who you talk to, it can contain many different methods.

I’ll give you something in a couple of days that’ll help clarify A LOT…

… For now, follow this simple advice:

If you can pick it, pluck it, harvest it, hunt it, or fish it, eat it.

That is, if it comes from the ground or if it has a heartbeat, it’s likely good for.

Eating whole, natural foods – and ideally wild fish and game – should be a staple of your diet. This should be your focus. It’ll make a MASSIVE difference in your brain health, which will make a huge difference in how you view your life.


Set a massive goal (It HAS TO excite the crap out of you).

Reverse engineer it and make a good, simple plan.

Take action and be relentless in your pursuit of this massive goal.

Train hard.

Eat right.

Get after it.

  3. Great article, sir. Being really busy is the one thing of late that has fast-forwarded my goals the past 13 months. Now if I can start consistently eating healthy I can really tie everything together. Keep up the great work.
