EPISODE 141

No Self-Comparison: How To 10x Your Creative and Collaborative Capabilities and Achievements with Dan Sullivan and Joe Polish


Episode Summary

Our world has shifted from conformity to uniqueness.  Understanding the implications of this can help you 10x your creative and collaborative capabilities and achievements.

Here’s a glance at what you’ll learn from Dan in this episode:

  • No Self-Comparison: How To 10x Your Creative and Collaborative Capabilities and Achievements
  • Why our world has shifted from conformity to uniqueness (and the difference between conformity and comparison)
  • Where uniqueness really comes from and the importance of having a set of inner principles
  • Profitably Unique: Why now is the best time ever on our planet to be richly rewarded for being unique
  • How to take almost any painful past experience, transform it into a valuable lesson and confidently move forward
  • The role teamwork plays in multiplying uniqueness and achieving 10x more in your life and business
  • Everyone Else Is Taken: Why comparing yourself to others blocks your progress (and what to do instead)

Show Notes

  • Dan was born just before D-Day, in a world that valued conformity more than being unique.
  • Technology is freeing human beings from conformity.
  • People are organized internally in three totally different ways: Tradition Centered, Inner Centered, and Outer Centered.
  • Social media is an extreme example of being outer centered where you try to be who others think you are.
  • Uniqueness doesn’t tend to appear in people who are Tradition or Outer Centered.
  • A business like Steve Sims’ Bluefish is only possible in a world where he can find people with unique skills and connect with them.
  • If you are going to be successful, you have to make up your own future. The way to do that is to make up your own past.
  • Our past is a set of ideas about what happened to us. Our future is a set of ideas about what will happen to us.
  • Painful experiences only stay with us because we haven’t extracted a lesson from them. The lesson means that experience has a future.
  • The ability to break out of a silent battle is what starts the healing process.
  • How much of people’s lives revolve around them wanting or imagining being someone else. Celebrity culture is a symptom of people trying to live lives other than their own.
  • People who spend the most time on social media have the highest rates of depression, especially young people.
  • If you actually have a center, you don’t need to prove it to other people.
  • Many people try to impose their value system on others, but theys will do things for their reasons, not someone else’s.
  • Uniqueness comes from having a sense of yourself inside, which allows you to resonate with the world.
  • If you have to constantly change who you are to please the people around you, they don’t really care that much about you.
  • Before this age, there was never a time where it was profitable to be unique.
  • Social media is designed and engineered to grasp your attention and not let go. Are you using social media or is it using you?
  • The world needs a fair amount of conformity to work, uniqueness is elective.
  • Entrepreneurship is the first decision in life to be unique, you might as well commit to it.
  • Once you identify your Uniqueness, you will begin to resonate with growth opportunities in the world.
