Craig's friends called him, "The World's Most Disciplined Man."
Craig spent 15 years selling his programs on the internet until he started coaching and speaking career, and joining mastermind groups. He strongly believed that knowing a lot of people makes everything in life easier. Successful people have all areas of life checked off and very well connected. Thus, it is a way of knowing more about how to grow your business, where to invest your money, knowing more about real estate, how to flip houses more, etc.
Moreover, he talks about the importance of preparation and controlling your mornings. What does it mean? Craig believed that the more prepared you are, the more successful you’re going to be just like the top successful entrepreneurs in the world. Just like preparing things the night before to dominate your day. On the other hand, Craig was used to being a binge drinker, hypocritical, socially anxious, introverted type of person, stressed and had some anxiety attacks, but decided to leave the vicious life and shift into a virtuous life. He gets his life on track, living his best, building a legacy and impacting more people.
You too can do it. How? Craig suggested that you just need to be willing to admit what you are not willing to do to not live in frustration and depression. Know your true self and what your values are. Then, you can design your life to be successful whatever that means to you. You don’t need to be like somebody else but being the best version of yourself. Just figure out what game you’re willing to play and play that game as well as you can. Above all, don’t forget to have that patience when you hit obstacles and hurdles with your business and in life!
