Description

In this course, I'll show you the 27 MOST mind-blowing lessons I learned from reading over 1000 books in the last four years. 

The things that the world's highest achievers spent their entire lives discovering, that no professor or teacher will ever tell you.

Because everyone who’s excelled in any area of life knew things we’re never taught in school.

They discovered the truth about finding their purpose and creating a perfect vision to work towards. Or about motivation and productivity, financial freedom, having authentic relationships, changing the world, persuading people, learning incredibly quickly or celebrating their hundredth birthday still in perfect health.

Meanwhile in school we didn’t learn any of this stuffThese simple and surprising lessons from history's smartest people will show you what you should have learned in school -- and they can completely transform every area of your life.

Here's a sample of what you'll learn inside:

  1. Steve Job's ONE belief that made everything he did possible [Lecture 5]
  2. Albert Einstein's "trick" that can help you find your purpose and LOVE your work [Lecture 21]
  3. A Roman emperor's mantra for inner peace (remember this and you might never feel anxious again) [Lecture 12]
  4. The Buddha's secret to finally enjoying every second of your life [Lecture 15]
  5. Aristotle's key to automatically achieving all your goals [Lecture 11]
  6. A Buddhist monk's simple lesson on what to do AS SOON AS you feel angry [Lecture 27]
  7. The world's greatest tennis player's discovery to instantly become happier [Lecture 15]
  8. A lesson from the founder of Starbucks to NEVER waste time figuring things out again [Lecture 32]
  9. Charles Darwin, who popularized evolution theory, on how to MAXIMIZE your body's health (HINT: It's the opposite of what most doctor's say!) [Lecture 19]
  10. Warren Buffett's surprising advice on how to live your dreams NOW [Lecture 22]
  11. Larry King's single secret on powerfully connecting with people [Lecture 20 ]

And more...

My goal in this course is to share with you lessons I know can guide you to the correct action, guide you to happiness and guide you to success throughout life.

I look forward to taking this journey together!

I'm On A Quest To Give You The Education You'll Never Get In School.

The things that the world's highest achievers spent their entire lives discovering, that no professor or teacher will ever tell you.

Because when I was in college, I was mad. I’d just read a book and everything inside was the opposite of what I was learning in all my classes.

So I ran into the dean’s office and said "I'm literally learning more from the books I get on Amazon for five bucks than these classes that cost thousands of dollars each!"

And all she had to tell me is...they're working on it!

So when I walked out that day, I swore I’d teach myself the things I should have learned in school. And I started reading LOTS of books….now over a thousand on everything from meditation to making money. And I realized ONE BIG THING…

Everyone who’s excelled in any area of life knew things we’re never taught in school.

They were Insiders.

They discovered the truth about finding their purpose and creating a perfect vision to work towards. Or about motivation and productivity, financial freedom, having authentic relationships, changing the world, persuading people, learning incredibly quickly or celebrating their hundredth birthday still in perfect health.

Meanwhile in college we didn’t learn any of this stuff. Instead we’re forced to pay tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to memorize facts so we could write them on a piece of paper.

So if you want to live a life miles beyond the “regular” life, you'll have to learn less from a classroom, and more from the people who have actually gotten the things you want.

And my goal on Udemy is to share with you how you can also Become A Learning Machine and to condense tens of thousands of pages of reading in different subjects to help you become way more productive and make a lasting impact on the world.
