Best-selling author Cal Newport literally wrote the book on how to “Get so good they can’t ignore you.” Instead of looking inwards and trying to find your one true passion, he advises lowering the bar and finding a few decent interests. Then, raise the bar for skill acquisition and mastery. Anyone feeling “stuck” in life will find his approach challenging and refreshing. So tune into this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, and listen to Cal Newport discuss why you should not necessarily follow your passion, why you should disconnect from social media, and why sacrifice promotes the good life.

QUOTES:

“If you can't then understand your own physiology to a level where you can fix that without needing more technology, you're gonna fail. That's a short game. And I want you to play the long game.” [5:49]

 

“The first thing would be simply becoming aware of what's happening. And the easiest way to do that is to decrease the amount of external stimuli coming in, and just being with your own self  as much as possible” [4:13]

 

“And what we know very clearly is the plasticity within the muscle, n other words, its ability to change its composition, changes really rapidly. So if you haven't strength trained on anything heavy in weeks, decades, I'm not surprised you have a hard time regulating that 'cause that's what it's primarily there for.” [18:08]

 

“There's a difference between variation in our training and randomization. Randomization is not a good idea. There's no plan. There's no purpose.” [18:37]

 

“What is magic for sleep is consistency for the most part. What I don't want people to be is slightly consistently underslept.” [22:04]

 

“I don't want people to be fragile. Not handling any unplanned stress. If you can't handle any unplanned stress in any aspect of your life and a little bit of stress, causes a big problem.” [29:56]

 

“Some people got a good draw and made bad choices. Some people got a really, really tough draw. Okay. What are you gonna do about it? You still have an option. You still kind of have some control but you have to make that choice.” [46:43]

It makes sense Entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David admires Arnold Schwarzenegger the way he does. Both embody the story of immigrants with the odds stacked against them that used
adversity, self-evaluation, and a body-builder mentality to re-write their own narrative. The author of 25 Laws to Doing the Impossible shares how he shaped his mindset to achieve the
impossible on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.

QUOTES:
“I also believe firmly that events, conversations, certain individuals can completely say
something that can change your life forever.” [14:40]
 
“One of the scariest things about life is a question. The scary question can shake a soul up
'cause no one's asked that question from you. So for me, the transition for somebody who'd
want to change it and get clarity is actually asking questions.” [15:38]
 
“If you don't ask the questions of what you want to do next, the world is gonna put you in the
box of what you have to do next because they're determining who you need to be. And you are
rising up to their expectations 'cause you're not asking the questions yourself.” [15:50]
 
“Clarity to me is stemmed from you being able to sit down and ask those tough questions that
piss you off, that irritate you, that make you emotional, that you cry over, that you reflect, that
makes you want to do research, that makes you follow up, that makes you sit down and say, "I
don't really know. I've never thought about this before." And that goes deeper, and deeper, and
deeper.” [16:08]
 
“Clarity gives confidence.” [16:55]
 
“Identity is you asking the questions until eventually you get to a point that you get to the deeper part of who do you want to be? What life do you want to live? And why do you want to live this
life? Why is it important to you? Why is it worth you putting through all these hours? Why would you want to do that?” [22:20]
 
“I think declaring the intention serves a purpose. I think when you go out there and you say, "This is what I'm gonna be doing, this is where I'm gonna be at," you officially have the world
holding you accountable.” [23:10]
 
“Haters highlight your weaknesses.” [29:48]
 
“The more you tell the world how to manage expectations dealing with you and what to anticipate, you actually minimize a lot of the noise.” [33:33]
 
“The solution for you to become free is you gotta question every single thing” [36:50]
